AEW All-Atlantic Championship: Orange Cassidy VS “Big Bill” Morrissey w/ Stokely Hathaway!

Freshly Squeezed is standing up for his Best Friends after what The Firm did to them! But is Cassidy biting off way more than he can chew? Or will Big Bill from the Big Apple be just, whatever?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and there’s gold in the Golden State!

The bell rings and Bill stares Cassidy down. Fans rally for Cassidy, he puts his sunglasses aside, and he “fires” himself up. Cassidy steps to Bill, but then steps back as Bill storms up. Cassidy bails out and fans cheer more. The ring count starts and Cassidy dares Bill to come out after him. Bill storms out, but then Cassidy slides back in. Now the count is on Bill! Bill steps up and in, but Cassidy bails back out. Bill and Stokely are both annoyed by these cat ‘n’ mouse games, but Cassidy dares him to come out. “This is Awesome!” but Bill tricks Cassidy! But even then, Cassidy slips away! Fans fire up as Cassidy and Stokely stare down.

Stokely talks trash, but then Cassidy takes Stokely’s shades! Bill sneaks up behind Cassidy, Stokely takes the glasses back, but Cassidy avoids the haymaker! Bill stops short of hitting Stokely, that would’ve knocked him out! Bill hurries in, Cassidy ducks ‘n’ dodges and sunset flips! Bill stays up, drags him up with both hands, then throws him to the corner! But Cassidy dodges, goes to the other corner, dodges again, and keeps moving, tilt-o-whirl- NOPE! Bill blocks the rest, for the SIDEWALK SLAM! Fans boo but Bill drags Cassidy up. Bill puts Cassidy in a corner to SPLASH! Bill taunts Cassidy, “You wanna play games?”

Bill whips Cassidy corner to corner hard and Cassidy bounces off buckles! The fans boo but Bill mocks Cassidy putting his hands in his pockets. Bill whips Cassidy corner to corner again, Cassidy goes up and out, but Bill BOOTS Cassidy down! Cassidy falls to the floor, crawls around the way, but Bill goes out to fetch him. Fans rally and spells it out, “S A W F T, Sawwwwft!” But Bill CLUBS Cassidy, fires off fists, then CLUBS Cassidy again! Cassidy staggers away and falls, but then Bill STANDS on Cassidy! The ref counts, but Stokely commandeers the timekeeper’s table! He and Bill bring it over, and then Bill drags Cassidy up.

The ref tells Bill no, but Bill choke grips! Cassidy fires off fists to fight the slam! But then Bill UPPERCUTS Cassidy! Cassidy staggers away, but then comes back! Cassidy leaps, but into the grip! CHOKE SLAM through the table!! Bill grins as he stands over Cassidy and fans lose their minds as Dynamite goes picture in picture.

The ref finally gets Bill to go back to the ring, and Cassidy stirs in the wreckage. Bill again mocks Cassidy putting hands in his pockets. Stokely wants a ring count and the medic checks Cassidy. Cassidy is somehow okay to continue, so Bill goes out to fetch him. Bill puts Cassidy in the ring, storms up and mocks the fans clapping. Bill drags Cassidy back up, and TOSSES him back out! The ref argues with Bill but that allows Stokely to stomp away! Bill goes out after Stokely again, puts him back in the ring, and he drags Cassidy up again. To TOSS him out again! The ref reprimands, but here comes DANHAUSEN!

Danhausen warns Stokely, Stokely backs off, but then Bill stands in Danhausen’s way. Danhausen stands down to coach Cassidy up. Dynamite returns to single picture as Bill puts Cassidy back in the ring. Bill drags Cassidy up, suplexes, and he holds Cassidy up! Danhausen tries to wave things over, but Bill SLAMS Cassidy down! Cassidy writhes and Bill mocks the pockets again. Fans rally, Cassidy sits up, but Bill stands him up. Cassidy throws body blows but they don’t do anything. Hard to say if that’s because Cassidy is tired or just playing around. Cassidy dodges Bill’s haymaker, ORANGE- NO, Bill blocks the punch to have a FULL NELSON!

Bill thrashes Cassidy around, Cassidy is all but a rag doll! But Cassidy gets a second wind! Cassidy powers up, but Bill runs, only for Cassidy to drop! The boot is denied, and Bill is annoyed. Bill stands Cassidy up, runs again, but again Cassidy drops! And bails out! Fans cheer, Danhausen coaches him up, but Stokely steps up. Danhausen gets mad now. Bill stands in the way, but Danhausen still powers up! Bill choke grips Danhausen! But Stokely says he has a better idea. CAST BACKHAND!! But Cassidy DIVES into Stokely and Bill! Cassidy goes again, another DIVE, but into a choke grip! CHJOKE- ORANGE PUNCH!!

Cassidy has Bill wobbling, and he ORANGE PUNCHES a leg! And then SHOTGUNS Bill into steel steps! Fans fire up as Cassidy gets back in the ring! Cassidy fires up in the corner while Bill drags himself in. Off comes the armband! ORANGE- NO, Bill catches Cassidy to suplex! STUN-DOG MILLIONAIRE!! Cassidy tilt-o-whirls to DDT! Fans are thunderous, Orange reloads, ORANGE PUNCH!! Bill stays standing, so Cassidy runs in again, ORANGE PUNCH!! Bill leans on ropes but fans are thunderous! Cassidy goes up top, Bill staggers over, FLYING ORANGE PUNCH!!! Cover, Cassidy wins!!

Winner: Orange Cassidy, by pinfall (still AEW All-Atlantic Champion)

Now that was a HUGE win for Cassidy! If not even Big Bill can dethrone the Freshly Squeezed fighting champion, who can?

 

AEW shares footage from after last week’s Dynamite.

After a bloody battle with Evil Uno, The Dark Order and Hangman Page, Jon Moxley stormed backstage with Wheeler Yuta and Claudio Castagnoli, and he was furious! Moxley tastes his own blood, but it tastes like victory and life! That is what Moxley is about! He lives life to the fullest. He’s said it before that he’s a sick man and this is what he likes. It isn’t something to aspire to, but he lives for this sh*t! And he’s not the kind of guy you wanna go down a dark alley with. Who do you think is gonna come out of this? WHO DO YOU THINK IS GONNA COME OUT OF THIS!? But just remember, Hangman, you wanted this.

Moxley tried to leave it alone. He beat Hangman once, sent him to the hospital, barely broke a sweat, and got no credit for it. Many said it was an accident. Then Hangman beats Moxley and Moxley comes back from the worst injury in years, and then does the same to Hangman! Hangman got praised, he got flowers, but Moxley got nothing! They said it was a fluke, it wasn’t real, it didn’t count! But that’s what Moxley would say to, if he got beat by a wrestling move he learned in the seventh grade. But this time, Moxley will leave no doubt. “Hangman, you are a great wrestler. You are even a great man. But you are NOT the same animal as me!!”

There is only room for one of this kind of animal in AEW. There is only room for one like Moxley in this ecosystem, and he will die to protect what’s his. See you in TEXAS DEATH!! Blood has already been spilt in this feud, but who will be the one willing to give it all just to win one more time?

 

The Elite is here!

Or they were… The lights go out, they come back, and the HOUSE OF BLACK is here!! Malakai, Brody and Buddy attack Kenny Omega and the Young Bucks in the dark! And when the lights are finally up, the House hold up the Trios Championships, with the Elite at their feet! And then the lights go out again! Will this be how it goes at Revolution?

 

Samoa Joe is here!

The One True King of Wrestling Television is in San Francisco to join commentary for the Face of the Revolution! Provided he makes it through Wardlow this Sunday, will Joe be facing the winner of the golden ring?

Face of the Revolution Ladder Match: Sammy Guevara VS Action Andretti VS Konosuke Takeshita VS Ortiz VS AR Fox VS Eddie Kingston VS “Powerhouse” Will Hobbs VS Komander!

The Spanish God already beat Action on Rampage, but that was with some help from Daniel Garcia. Now that it’s an eight man scramble to the top, will Sammy still stand tall? Or will a pro-wrestler become The Face of the Revolution?

Dynamite returns as Sammy makes his entrance, with Fox, Hobbs, Action, Konosuke, Komander and Ortiz already in the ring. The Mad King is giving Ortiz space by being on the outside, but the bell rings and Ortiz goes right out after him! They brawl, Fox bails out to get a ladder, as does Sammy. Komander and Action each dropkick the ladders into them! Hobbs fires off on Konosuke while Action DIVES onto Sammy, and then Komander DIVES onto Fox! There’s no one in the ring, Eddie drops a ladder on Ortiz! Konosuke ROCKS Hobbs, throws hands, and Komander whips Fox. Fox reverses, Komander tilt-o-whirls, but into an ANARCHY!

Ortiz and Eddie fight to the stage! Sammy RAMS Fox with a ladder, then RAMS him again! Fans boo as Sammy leans the ladder in a corner, then fetches a second ladder. Action SHOTGUNS that ladder into Sammy! Sammy bails out, Komander is up top, and he tightrope walks to MISSILE DROPKICK a ladder into Action! Hobbs runs in to CLOBBER Action! Fans fire up for California’s own as Hobbs sets that second ladder in a corner. Hobbs then whips Komander into the ladder! Fox runs in but Hobbs CLOBBERS him! Hobbs TOSSES Fox onto the other ladder! Action returns, but Hobbs CLOBBERS him, too!

Hobbs scoops Action, takes aim, and he RAMS Action into a ladder! Action slumps down, Sammy slides in, but Hobbs is ready. Sammy shakes his head and bails back out. Hobbs says that’s right, but Konosuke gets in the ring. Fans fire up as the forearms start flying! Konosuke runs in, DOUBLE LARIATS collide! Konosuke staggers, but he comes back! DOUBLE LARIATS collide again! Both men DOUBLE LARIAT again! Konosuke leans on a ladder, Hobbs runs in, but he’s sent into the ladder! Konosuke waistlocks to GERMAN SUPLEX Hobbs! Don Callis is watching backstage, he is still interested in the Future of Wrestling.

Konosuke throws Hobbs out of the ring, but turns around into a KNEE from Sammy! Sammy soaks up the heat, he builds speed, but runs into a SUPERKICK from Action! Action builds speed, and he FLIES to take out Sammy! Fans fire up as Action brings Sammy up, but Fox springboards, IMPLODING SENTON! Fox takes out Sammy and Action, but Komander is up top! Komander tightrope walks again, to SWANTON the pile!! Fans are thunderous while Dynamite goes picture in picture!

The refs check and all eight men are okay to continue, so it’s about who gets to their feet first. Sammy staggers up and hurries into the ring. Fox stands, the others stir, and Sammy is working on a ladder. Sammy stands it up while Konosuke sends Komander into barriers. Fox has his own ladder on the outside that he stands up. Sammy climbs, Komander sends Konosuke into barriers, and Action CLUBS Sammy! Then he RAMS Sammy with the other ladder. Sammy ROCKS Action, but Fox continues to put ladders up together on the outside. Sammy whips Action into the other ladder! Then he puts that ladder against the other like a bridge.

Sammy climbs up, but Komander drags him down. Komander then fires up to climb, but Konosuke CLUBS him down! Konosuke ROCKS Kmander, has him on the ropes, and TOSSES him out! Konosuke then PLANCHAS to take Komander down! Both men scramble back into the ring, Dynhamite returns to single picture, and Komander stomps Konosuke. But Konsouke keeps Komander from climbing, and DECKS him! Hobbs DECKS Konosuke! Fans fire up as Hobbs brings Komander up and aims for the ladders Fox has set up. But Fox SMACKS Hobbs with a chair! Fox done messed up, though, as Hobbs fireman’s carries! DEATH VALLEY DRIVER on the ladder bridge!!

Konosuke runs in, he and Hobbs DOUBLE LARIAT and they both fall! And Sammy’s back in the ring to climb! Fans boo, but who is up to stop him?! Action goes up a ladder, to the bridge, and then after Sammy! Action and Sammy brawl, Action gets the edge, then climbs up, to SUPER FALCON ARROW on the ladder bridge! Sammy falls off, Action’s leg gets caught! Fans lose their minds, but Komander is up top again! He aims at Fox on the other bridge, to SHOOTING STAR PRESS!! Fox sputters and falls to the floor while fans lose their minds all over again! Komander then climbs up into the ring with ladders!

Komander has a clear path, he gets to the central ladder, but Konosuke follows right behind! Konosuke waistlocks, to SUPER BLUE THUNDER BOMB off the ladder!!! Komander flops out of the ring, fans are giving a standing ovation! Konosuke moves the bridge out of the way, he climbs up again, and he reaches out. But Action springboards right up to join him! They brawl with forearms, only for DANIEL GARCIA to shove the ladder over! Konosuke and Action HOTSHOT, and then Garcia hits Action with an UREANGE! Sammy gets the tallest ladder of the bunch closer to the ring, and then he and Garcia get chairs.

Garcia and Sammy set up a ladder bridge with those chairs, then drag Action over. They put Action on the ladder, CHOP him, then Sammy climbs the tallest ladder! Sammy says he’s loco, for this SWANTON BOMB through the ladder!! Both Sammy and Action writhe, but Garcia helps Sammy up! Garcia puts Sammy in the ring, sets a ladder up for him, and fans boo as Garcia drags Sammy to the rungs. Sammy reaches the top, grabs at the ring, but Konosuke tips the ladder over! Now Garcia and Sammy HOTSHOT! Konosuke TOSSES Garcia and POWER DRIVE KNEES Sammy down!!

Konosuke gets the ladder up! Konosuke climbs, but HOBBS is back! Hobbs BODIES the ladder! Konosuke falls, Hobbs stands the ladder up, then climbs up, and grabs the ring! Hobbs unhooks it, and WINS!

Winner: “Powerhouse” Will Hobbs (NEW Face of the Revolution)

The young man from Oakland just handled his business! Now he waits to see who wins between Joe and Wardlow. Joe tells Hobbs not to get ahead of himself, but Hobbs is storming up the ramp. Joe meets him at the stage, but so does Wardlow! Security rushes out to keep this from exploding, but Wardlow fires off on them! Joe gets away, and Hobbs is laughing at it all! Wardlow is pissed that his prey got away, so he POWERBOMBS one guard onto all the other guards! Will whoever wins the TNT Championship have one hell of a fight on their hands with Hobbs?

 

Backstage interview with Best Friends.

Renee Paquette is with Trent, Chuck, Danhausen and Orange Cassidy with unfortunate news. Trent and Chuck are NOT medically cleared to compete in the Casino Tag Team Battle Royal given that attack from Rampage. Danhausen says he has good news: he and Cassidy are also Best Friends and can sub in! Well, okay, but we just saw Cassidy go through a big battle against Big Bill. Can Cassidy really turn right around and enter a battle royal? “Ugh…” Danhausen says Cassidy is just fine, he can do it. Plus, there’s plenty of room in that backpack for more championships. Is Cassidy sure? “I don’t care.”

Well, then, hands in! Renee joins in, but can #OrangeHausen really pull off a huge win for their Best Friends?

 

Chris Jericho VS “Pretty” Peter Avalon!

The Ocho got goaded into a rematch at Revolution with Ricky Starks, mostly because he refused to let anyone else take that match instead. “Pretty” Peter got a spiked-jacket Judas Effect for wanting an opportunity, will he get a slightly less dangerous one for wanting payback?

Dynamite returns as Avalon makes his entrance. The bell rings, Jericho takes his jacket off, and Avalon TACKLES him! Fans fire up as Avalon rains down fists! Avalon HAMMERS away on Jericho, has him in a corner, CHOPS and ROCKS on repeat! Avalon whips, Jericho bails out and fans boo. Avalon builds speed to DIVE! Direct hit into the barriers! Avalon CLUBS Jericho, CHOPS him, and then CHOPS him again! Avalon whips Jericho into steel steps! Avalon digs his fingers into Jericho’s face, digs Jericho’s face into the post, then puts him in the ring. Jericho clings to referee Aubrey Edwards, but Avalon CLAWS Jericho’s back!

Avalon CHOPS, CHOPS, and whips, but Jericho ducks ‘n’ dodges, into a BOOT from Avalon! Cover, TWO! Fans rally as Avalon RAMS Jericho into the corner. Avalon CHOPS and ROCKS and RAMS into Jericho over and over. Avalon lets off, but runs back in, only to be put on the apron. Avalon ROCKS Jericho, climbs up and CROSSBODIES! Cover, TWO! Avalon keeps moving, he leaps off the corner, FLYING DDT! Cover, TWO!! Fans fire up but Avalon turns around into a CODE BREAKER! Cover, Jericho wins!

Winner: Chris Jericho, by pinfall

Avalon almost had Jericho, but he lost focus and that was all Jericho needed. But Jericho has Floyd the Baseball Bat! Fans boo as Jericho CLOBBERS Avalon with Floyd! And then Jericho CLUBS away on Avalon with the bat! But here comes RICKY! Starks makes sure the JAS isn’t following, then he runs into the ring to run Jericho off! Jericho gets a mic to tell fans to shut up. “Starks! On Sunday, right here in this crappy town of San Francisco, I’m gonna beat the hell outta you! One on one! Just because the Jericho Appreciation Society is not allowed at ringside doesn’t mean they’re not here at ringside tonight.”

Garcia returns, an d Jake Hager is with him! They mug Starks, and Jericho joins in! Fans boo as the JAS beat Starks down 3v1! Hager hoists Starks up for a SPINEBUSTER! Fans boo again but Hager stands Starks up for Garcia to hit the URENAGE! Fans boo more but Jericho gets Floyd back! Hager and Garcia stand Starks up, for the JUDAS EFFECT! Fans boo but the JAS just soak it all up. Starks is down now, but will it be a very different story when Jericho has to stand all on his own?

 

Hangman Page speaks.

“This Sunday is the finish line, the finale. Hangman, Mox, Texas Death! I talked to Dark Order earlier today, and I don’t think he meant anything by it, but Alex said that if this is the end of Mox and me, then aren’t I just a little bit afraid of losing? Look at me. This match, this is all I’ve got left to lose. I had the AEW World Championship and I lost that. I had another shot at it, Mox, and you took that from me. You can’t take my friends away from me, you already beat Uno within an inch of his life last week. You can’t take my memory from me, it’s gone.

“You can’t take the feeling in the tips of my fingers because I ain’t got it anymore, Mox. And you can’t take away my heart because you couldn’t carry it. This Sunday, Jon, I take everything away from you. I take your spot at the top of the food chain here. I take your pride in blood and violence. At the end of the throes of war, I am the man left standing. And you’re right, I’m not the same kind of animal as you. I don’t enjoy violence, I hate it. I hate it to its core. But this Sunday, I will be the most violent and bloodthirsty son of a b*tch that you have ever seen, not in spite of that but because of it.

“Because that is who I know I will have to be to beat you, and beating you is the last glimmer of hope that I do have here, Jon. This is Texas Death. And there’s only two ways out. Either you live, or you die. And I ain’t done living. Jon, after Sunday, you… You will never be the same.” The Cowboy is ready to do what he must against The Maniac, who makes it out alive?

 

Renee Paquette is in the ring.

And she has us welcome Christian Cage! Fans boo as Captain Charisma makes his way out. Christian joins Renee in the ring, and she asks him that after Jungle Boy overcame all odds and defeated Luchasaurus at Full Gear, things would finally be done between them all. And yet, here we are. What is going on? Christian says the feeling is mutual for San Francisco, he can’t wait to not be here for another 10 years. Fans boo but Christian says let’s not blur the lines of reality. The better part of six months, Christian has embarrassed Jungle Boy, and beat him down at will. Christian was done, until he turns on Dynamite and sees Jack Perry.

What does Jack say? That in 2023, he’s gonna win a singles title. “Over my dead body!” Christian says HE will win a singles title in 2023 and that’s a fact! Fans say STFU but Christian says he’s been watching JB. JB has been winning by quick pins, but if he’s okay winning a title that way, fine. But does he want to win, or does he want to BEAT someone? Does he wanna break someone down, break their will, and then take their title? That’s rhetorical. Christian knows the answer. When JB jumped Christian from behind, he had him dead to rights for a Con-Chair-To, and he hesitated.

Then what happened? Christian turned it around, and showed JB how a REAL man conducts business, when HE smashed JB on the chair, leaving him in a pool of blood and piss! And another thing that has been bothering Christian was just a few minutes ago. Why does JB wanna win a title so bad? It then hit Christian like a ton of bricks. JB has no respect for the lineage or priority or prestige of a championship. JB just wants to take that shiny new toy home to show his mommy, make some memes, get some attention. The problem with JB, and for everyone in his entire generation, is that they treat Christian’s business like a video game!

“You are a dime a dozen.” Christian says that no one else is willing to sink to the depths that he will, do the things he does in the ring! Christian is one of one! And unlike JB’s generation, Christian treats this like an ATM, and he is not done milking it dry! But that brings Christian to a challenge he has for JB. This Sunday, Revolution, it won’t be a match, but it will be a fight. No rules, no regulations, just a fight. The sad reality is, if JB chooses to show up, at the end of the day, JB is just his father’s son. Just like his father, JB is a no talent hack who should be thankful he got Hollywood good looks to coast through life!

This business is not for him! JB doesn’t have the guts! He isn’t a closer! He has no grit! He has NOTHIN! JB doesn’t have an ounce of what Christian has inside! But then the lights go down? And on the tron, JB has a video. He’s digging something. JB thinks back to the moment he could’ve hit Christian with the Con-Chair-To. Of all the moments they had together as friends. But then the betrayal, the beatings, the blood. JB has dug Christian’s grave! Renee asks Christian’s reaction. Fans sing, “Jack is gonna kill~ you!” Christian is speechless as he leaves, will his fight with Jungle Boy be his last?

 

Tony Schiavone interviews Britt Baker & Jamie Hayter.

Schiavone asks the Doctor and the AEW Women’s World Champion about the Triple Threat, Hayter VS Ruby Soho VS Saraya. Hayter says, “Ah, yes, this Sunday at Revolution. And to be honest, Tony, I don’t know which will be sweeter. Beating one b*tch or two.” Britt says tonight, Saraya can watch two former AEW Women’s World Champions duke it out in the ring, but guess what? She can look but she can’t touch, because she’ll NEVER have this belt. And Hayter says that if Saraya wants to cause shenanigans, go ahead, because Britt & Hayter will be there watching, too. The Pillar & the Killer have warned the outsiders, will things pop off before Revolution?

 

FTW Championship: Hook VS Matt Hardy w/ Ethan Page!

A settlement was signed between AEW and Stokely Hathaway, and The Firm is sending the one and only Matt Hardy to face the Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil! But on Rampage, it was added that if Hook wins, he gets a shot at Stokely! Will the gamble pay off for The Firm? Or will they all regret ever getting on Hook’s bad side?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and so are the stakes for this title match!

The bell rings and the two tie up. Hardy wrenches, wristlocks, but Hook wrenches and shoots in for a takedown! Hardy scrambles to the ropes, Hook lets off, and the two reset. Fans rally, the two go again, and Hook puts Hardy on the ropes. The ref counts, Hardy throws hands! Hook wobbles, and Hardy runs him over! Hardy says “DELETE! DELETE!” and fans join in, but Hook rolls to get a leg! Hook drags Hardy down into a KNEEBAR! Hardy scrambles, ROPEBREAK! The ref counts, The Firm freaks out, but Hook lets off, to say “SUCK IT!” Stokely is furious but Hardy drags Hook out of the ring and whip. Hook reverses, Hardy hits barriers!

Hook puts Hardy back in, Hardy distracts the ref and Ethan POSTS Hook! Fans boo but The Firm gets away with that. Hardy goes out, drags Hook up and puts him in, and Hardy brings Hook up to CLUB him again and again. Hardy turns Hook for a NECKBREAKER! Hardy soaks up the cheers and jeers, then he drags Hook back up. Hardy bumps Hook off buckles, “DELETE! DELETE!” Hardy goes to the second buckle, but Hook shoots around, T-BONE SUPLEX! Hardy staggers to a corner and Hook fires off heavy hands! Hook HEADBUTTS, runs in, but into a FLAPJACK! Hook hits buckles, and Hardy rains down fists!

The ref counts, Hardy lets off, and he grabs Hook’s leg. Hardy yanks Hook up, but Hook lands on his feet out of Hardy’s sit-down bomb! Hook SLIDING LARIATS! Hardy flounders, Stokely panics, and Hook wrenches to then reel Hardy in. hardy CLUBS Hook, POSTS him, then reels him in, SIDE EFFECT! Cover, TWO!! Hook survives, but Hardy tries again. Hook elbows the Side Effect, SAYANAGI, and then a whip. Hardy reverses, runs in, but men COLLIDE head to head! Fans rally while a standing count starts. Hook and Hardy stir, the Firm coaches Hardy but Hook is up first. Hardy flounders, Stokely sneaks his cast to Ethan! Ethan CLOBBERS Hook!!

Fans boo as The Firm get away with it, but then Stokely has to hide his “bad” hand! Hardy covers, TWO!?!? Hook survives, but now Hardy says “DELETE! DELETE!” Hardy brings Hook up, reels him in, TWIST- REDRUM!!! Hardy taps, Hook wins!!!

Winner: Hook, by submission (still FTW Champion)

Stokely is panicking! Hook gets a NO DISQUALIFICATION MATCH with Stokely, with NO Firm ringside! Will Stokely have more than just a cast on his arm after Hook’s down with him?

 

The House of Black speak.

They step out of the shadows, holding onto the AEW World Trios Championships, as Malakai says, “The greatest enemy is not the enemy that’s made out of flesh and bone. No, the greatest enemy is composed out of fear. Fear that eats away at the soul and forces loss before the body ever does. See, these titles, we’ll leave them here because they belong to you. But just know that on Sunday, you have already lost.” The belts are placed on the ground, and Julia Hart says, “See you at Revolution.” Will gold soon adorn the House of Black?

 

Toni Storm w/ Saraya VS Riho!

Just as the current champion said, this is a battle of two former champions! The Lightning From Down Under was the previous, but the Wrestling Idol was the inaugural! Will Saraya help Storm strike down Riho before going for the gold? Or will the outsiders be on the defensive going into Sunday?

Dynamite returns and Riho makes her entrance. The bell rings and Storm runs up on Riho! Storm stomps Riho in the corner, the ref counts and fans boo, but Storm lets off at 4. Storm stands Riho up to TOSS her across the way! Riho goes to the corner, but Storm TOSSES her back the other way! Storm flexes, then she stomps Riho. Storm scoops and SLAMS Riho, stands on her for a cover, ONE! Riho glares at up Storm, but Storm stomps her back down. Storm drags Riho up, scoops, but Riho slips off to fire off on Storm! Fans fire up, but Storm kicks low. Storm headlocks, Riho powers out but Storm runs Riho over. Cover, ONE as Riho goes Matrix!

Riho runs to SHOTGUN Storm! Storm staggers to a corner, Saraya is furious, but fans rally behind Riho. Riho runs but is sent into buckles! Storm stomps, whips Riho corner to corner but Riho reverses. Riho runs in to KNEE Storm, then reels her in to snap suplex! Cover, TWO! Saraya shouts at the fans, then at Riho. Riho swipes at Saraya, but Storm knees Riho low. Storm CLUBS Riho, whips her to ropes, but Riho handsprings through to SHOTGUN again! Storm is still up, Riho runs and wheelbarrows, victory roll, STOMP 182! Fans fire up, Riho covers, TWO! Saraya is annoyed, but Riho clamps onto Storm with a CROSSFACE!

Storm endures, Saraya says Riho’s cheating, but the ref says he has no idea what she’s talking about. Storm crawls around, reaches out, ROPEBREAK! Saraya protests that Riho should break but the ref says he’s told Riho to break and she did. Saraya calls Riho a cheater but Riho swipes at her again. Storm CLOBBERS Riho from behind! Storm then has Riho on the apron, to HIP ATTACK her to the floor! Storm and the ref argue, Saraya KNEES Riho down! Fans boo but Saraya has the camera look at Riho. Saraya mocks Riho’s pain, and Storm goes out to fetch Riho. Storm whips Riho into the POST!

Fans boo but Saraya cheers Storm on. But here come Britt & Hayter! They warned Saraya so here they are! Storm and Saraya see them coming, but Saraya just smiles. Storm drags Riho up while Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Storm puts Riho in and wraps on a chinlock. Riho endures, fights her way forward, and reaches out for the ROPEBREAK! Storm stomps Riho down immediately! Storm drags Riho up, puts her in the corner, and CHOPS her! And CHOPS! And then TOSSES her across the way! Storm kicks Riho around, scuffs her, but Riho glares at Storm. Storm slaps Riho, Riho SLAPS Storm! Storm mule kicks Riho, drags her up, and then snap suplexes! Cover, TWO! Storm is annoyed but she stares Hayter down. Storm kicks Riho around, drags her up and to the corner to bump her off buckles. Storm then RAMS into Riho, and digs her shoulder in!

Hayter & Britt aren’t impressed as Storm RAMS Riho again, then snapmares to a full nelson. Riho endures, even as Storm leans on the hold. Britt coaches Riho, fans rally, but Storm thrashes Riho around. Riho fights up, but Storm thrashes her more. Riho still gets to her feet, but Storm throws her down by her hair! The ref reprimands, but Storm drags Riho up. Riho throws body shots as Dynamite returns to single picture, but Storm whips her to a corner. Storm runs in, but Riho BOOTS her away!

Keith Lee and Dustin Rhodes speak.

The Limitless One says, “Let’s talk urgency. Dustin Rhodes, or as I like to call him, Dusty, drug me over here to say we need to deliver a message to the Mogul Affiliates. And I regret to inform you, I forgot my lovely, luscious new jacket. But this is more than what you’ve done to us. This is about what you do to others. And I personally will not have it. Dustin, what is it you like to say?” The Natural says, “Darkness has fallen over the city of San Francisco, and this Friday night, live on Rampage on TNT, you’re gonna find out we don’t like playing games! We are Naturally Limitless, and you’re gonna remember our name!” They have called out Swerve’s House, will they also tear it down?

 

Casino Tag Team Battle Royal!

There are a lot of second chances in this match from last week’s Revolution Tag Team Battle Royal. But after what The Firm did to Best Friends in a favor to Team Triple J, will that fourth and final spot in the AEW World Tag Team Championship match be Freshly Squeezed?

The Acclaimed & Daddy Ass stand tall protecting OrangeHausen, but will nothing stop Platinum Max & the Five Tool Player from becoming two-time tag team champions?

 

AEW takes a special look at MJF VS Bryan Danielson.

Jim Ross says that he won’t judge anyone’s character, but MJF’s can be perceived as “somewhat questionable.” Excalibur says that, if nothing else, MJF is a “very cold and calculating man.” Christopher Daniels says MJF will do anything to hold onto the title. And Bryan Danielson probably doesn’t even realize how long MJF will go. But Bryan meditates in the wilderness as he thinks back on all MJF has done and said. Renee Paquette says that Bryan has risen to the occasion and “proves time and time again just the durability of the wrestler that he is, just the technician that he is.”

Excalibur says that “from the moment he wakes up ’til the moment he goes to sleep, he’s thinking about professional wrestling, and ways to be the best professional wrestler in the world.” Taz says MJF has something to prove. And with the motivation of how no one thinks MJF can hang with Bryan for 60 minutes, Taz thinks MJF can. MJF works out in the gym, laser focused on every step he’s taking. Tony Schiavone says the Ironman match plays right into Bryan’s strengths. We’ve seen a more physical, more determined and more vicious MJF, but that’s because he realizes what he is in for with Bryan.

JR adds that he’s seen a lot of 60 minute Ironman matches, and they are just devastating. Dean Malenko says Bryan has done four of these matches, MJF has done none. But Dean will say that MJF could talk for 60 minutes. Excalibur says Bryan’s shoulder will be an obvious target for MJF, but if Bryan were to win this, that’d right a lot of wrongs. Both men are ready, and we hear from them in person, after the break!

 

Bryan Danielson is here!

Renee is there to meet The American Dragon in the ring and fans fire up. Bryan high-fives with Renee and she says that we are days away from the Ironman match for the AEW World Championship. “The animosity between the two of you is at an all time high, but I wanna bring this to your attention. This is a post from 2014 from MJF as he was dropping out of college, there’s actually a specific reference to you, saying that he is about to pursue his dream and his passion to become a professional wrestler. Does this change your perception of Max at all ahead of this match?”

Bryan says the thing is, a little over seven years ago, Bryan was forced to retire. And two years later, Bryan came back and said, “If you fight for your dreams, your dreams will fight for you.” But here comes MJF! Fans boo, but MJF has the music cut. Bryan tells MJF to shut up already! “For once in your life, just shut up! For weeks, I’ve been listening to you come out here and say all of these different reasons why you hate me. You hate me because people respect me and you think you deserve that respect. You hate me because some people call me the best wrestler in the world, and as AEW Champion, you think you deserve that.

“He hates me because I have a wonderful wife, I have wonderful kids, and he thinks he deserves that. That’s why he hates me!” But Max, you think you deserve all of these things, but you have done nothing to earn them, and nothing to fight for them! Fans fire up as Bryan says MJF has taken every shortcut, every cheat that he can to become AEW World Champion, but he hasn’t fought for it. And if there’s one thing MJF does deserve, it’s his fiancé leaving him! MJF gets mad now! He throws his jacket off as Bryan says, “Pinning shoulders to mats and banging rats, is that what you do, Max? That doesn’t seem like somebody I’d want my daughter to marry.”

Bryan says MJF wants to fight, but Bryan is ready to fight any time! Because unlike MJF, who was born with a silver spoon in his mouth, Bryan has been fighting his whole life! He fought poverty, depression, head injuries, shoulder injuries, retirement, The Authority, and fought for EVERYTHING! “Before I came here, I had a job that would’ve paid me for the rest of my life, but I left and I came to AEW because I wanted to FIGHT!” Fans cheer that! And when Bryan talks about fighting for dreams, his new dream is to become AEW World Champion! And goddamn it will he fight for that.

“So Max, this Sunday, at Revolution, you better be ready to fight with everything you have for SIXTY FULL MINUTES! And if you don’t… You are going to get your F*CKING HEAD KICKED IN!!” MJF is shocked and the fans are thunderous with “YES! YES! YES!” MJF is speechless for the first time in his life, but will he be able to speak with actions in Revolution’s ONE HOUR main event?!


My Thoughts:

This was a great Dynamite and a great go-home episode. Jericho VS Avalon was the only weak match but duh, of course Jericho squashes Avalon and of course he sets Starks up for a beatdown by the JAS. This go-home math makes me think Starks wins at Revolution, which would be more effective if he hadn’t already beat Jericho but whatever. Cassidy VS Big Bill was great stuff, though it seems The Firm is just going to be on the losing end of a lot of things. Cassidy retains his title, and in a great match from Hook VS Hardy, Hook retains his title. Now Hook gets to tear into Stokely, who of course doesn’t really have a broken hand.

And I was just wondering what happens if Best Friends, Chuck & Trent, couldn’t compete. The answer: Freebird rules of the faction name. OrangeHausen steps up to represent, and we got a great Casino Tag Battle Royal with them winning. Just like last week’s tag battle royal, we got great story stuff from the other teams, and I like that there’s a growing feud between Dark Order and Blackpool Combat Club, and one between the Lucha Brothers and whatever faction we’re seeing with Daivari and the Varsity Athletes. And per Best Friends’ feud with Triple J, we saw Triple J jump OrangeHausen, but then Acclaimed fought them off, good go-home to the tag title match.

We got really good stuff out of the AEW Women’s Championship story. Storm VS Riho was a great match, and since Storm isn’t in the Triple Threat on Sunday, she could give up a win to Riho to also spur on story stuff. Great brawl from Hayter, Saraya and Ruby, it kinda muddies the math since no one necessarily stood tall, but that makes for a lot of fun. We still need more Women’s Division stuff, because there doesn’t even seem to be a match for Jade on Revolution unless she has an Open Challenge for the Buy-In and it’s a big name from one of AEW’s partners, like Impact. There are probably a lot of great Impact stars who could take on Jade.

Really good promo from #NaturallyLimitless, they’re probably gonna beat Mogul Affiliates by pinning Parker Boudreaux. Really good promo from Christian Cage to challenge Jungle Boy, and great response from JB with that grave. I hope by “fight,” they make it a Street Fight or something so that it’s at least on record. JB can stick it to Christian by beating him down. And I actually really liked that The Elite got jumped by The House of Black, and then The House of Black had a good promo to hype of the trios title match. I think The Elite still retain, but this is going to be one hell of a match.

That Face of the Revolution Ladder Match was awesome stuff! Though, also really scary, mostly when Action got caught up in the ladder after he hit Sammy with the Falcon Arrow. But thankfully, Action’s leg survived, he still fought the rest of the match, but of course he and Sammy took each other out. For a moment, it seemed like Konosuke was gonna get the win, and he needs to get to a title at some point, too, but it just makes sense that they went with Hobbs. Hobbs also needs to get a title, and just like with them circling back to Joe VS Wardlow, Hobbs is back in the TNT title scene. Joe VS Wardlow can go either way, and then I would think whoever wins loses to Hobbs.

And just awesome promos to hype up the two biggest matches on Revolution. Moxley was still bloody and still bleeding during his promo, but it didn’t stop him from giving a great promo. Hangman had a great response, too, and the Texas Deathmatch could steal the show with how brutal they get. And though they had a vignette right before the very last segment with Bryan and MJF, it was a well-made vignette. And also, Bryan taking over the promo segment from MJF was awesome stuff. The actual censoring of Bryan’s final line was so badly done it was hilarious, but I do love that he shut MJF down. That Ironman match will be great stuff, too, but I still think MJF wins because he cheats the most he’s ever cheated.

My Score: 9/10

Darby Allin VS The Beast Mortos!

The ESports Stadium in Texas fires up as The Relentless One is back in action! He’s getting ready for Blood & Guts this Wednesday, but will he be red hot going into Dynamite? Or will he not get past the beast standing in his way?

The ref counts, Darby fires body shots! Darby fires forearms, then runs, but into a SUPER DUPER POP-UP SAMOAN DROP! Cover, TWO!! Darby survives and the fans rally behind him.

Sunset flip, but Darby sits on it! Mortos pushes up but Darby rolls him to a cover, TWO! Darby clamps on with a SLEEPER! The fans rally, Mortos fights up, and Mortos runs to BACKPACK CANNONBALL!

Mortos builds speed to TORNILLO TOPE!! Direct hit and the fans are thunderous again! They cheer on “A E DUB! A E DUB!” for giving them this opener.

Darby goes up while Mortos flounders, COFFIN DROP!! Cover, Darby wins!

Winner: Darby Allin, by pinfall

Both men were relentless tonight, but it’s Darby who survives their Collision! Will Darby be even more dangerous when he steps inside the double ring, double cage that is Blood & Guts?

Darby gets a mic to have his music cut. He says people tell him to slow down, or else he won’t be able to walk when he’s 30. Well, he is 30 now, and he feels wonderful! The only thing is, Darby doesn’t take the night off. Darby doesn’t forget being a dishwasher. He’d rather get kicked in the face any night of the week than go back to that. And we’re getting ready for Blood & Guts, and it’s very fitting that Darby’s finally in one. If anyone saw Sting’s final match, they saw Darby’s guts hanging out! He has a scar on his side that looks like Harry Potter’s forehead, and it stings every day. The fans cheer that!

Darby wants to talk the EVPs for a second, The Young Bucks. What sucks about them is that they never come to Collision, they never advertise the shows on the news or radio. It is Darby! AEW is Darby’s baby now! And he will stop at nothing to make sure everyone knows! Darby wouldn’t be here if not for The Bucks, that’s no secret, but man, they suck so bad now. And Jack Perry… Oh, Jack Perry. TNT Champion? No, that title means everything to Darby, and he will stop at nothing until the belt is around his waist again. So All In is around the corner… If Jack has the balls, let’s play! Darby is ready for Blood & Guts, see you Wednesday!

 

The Acclaimed speak.

Max Caster says, “Yo! Listen! The Elite, Blood & Guts next week, Team AEW is about to stomp on those tiny little nuts.” Billy Gunn tells Caster to just stop right there. That is not what the match is about. It is not about Bowens being The Scissor King, or about Caster being a rapper. It is about being the best wrestlers alive, and about being a badass! They need to bring this fight to The Elite! Time to nut up or shut up! Daddy Ass is fired up for his boys, and that fires them up! Bowens & Caster are ready to get serious, will they make The Young Bucks pay for playing games with them?

 

Skye Blue VS Hikaru Shida!

To be the best, you gotta beat one of the best, and that is why Chicago Skye called out the former THREE-TIME AEW Women’s World Champion! Will Skye use this Collision to build momentum? Or is she just going to give Shida her own rebound victory towards a title?

The bell rings and Skye BOOTS Shida down! Skye bumps Shida off buckles, stomps a mudhole in, then lets off. Skye brings Shida around to bump off buckles again, then stomps her more. Shida hits back, but Skye ROCKS her for it. Skye brings Shida around again, but Shida breaks free to ROCK Skye! Skye fires another forearm, but so does Shida! They go back and forth, faster and faster, then Shida fires off a flurry! Shida ROCKS Skye, fires up, then catches Skye to spin her. Skye ELBOWS Shida first, then runs, but into a KNEE! Shida runs but Skye SHINING WIZARDS at the ropes! Skye snapmares and runs up, but Shida blocks!

Shida spins Skye, ducks the spin kick and rolls Skye up! Skye rolls through but Shida DROPKICKS her out of the ring! The fans fire up and Shida watches Skye go around the way. Shida goes up and CROSSBODIES! Down goes Skye and the ref has Doc Sampson check. Shida gets herself a chair while she waits, and the fans fire up while Collision goes picture in picture.

Shida paces while Skye is checked out. That fall really rocked her, maybe even beat up a leg. Shida paces, then goes back into the ring to wait. Shida keeps the fans fired up, but it doesn’t look good for Skye. Shida checks with the ref, and it seems the match has been called! Shida wins by default!

Winner: Hikaru Shida, by medical stoppage

A real shame for Skye, as she was the one who wanted this fight. But Shida is still moving on, will she be waiting on the champions after All In?

 

Lancer Archer is going nuts backstage!

He is beating up and throwing around prospects left and right! One guy walks in, sees what’s going on, and turns right around, only for Archer to grab him and CHUCK him into the garage door! “It seems everyone has forgotten who the Murderhark Monster is! Everyone’s forgotten just what I can do. And it’s time to remind you all!” Archer CHUCKS a trash can into another guy, #EverybodyDies! Who else will be unfortunate enough to face Archer’s wrath?

 

Chris Jericho speaks.

“Hi, guys~! And hello, Minoru Suzuki. We’ve been waiting a long time for this match, haven’t we? For four years, I’ve been thinking of Suzuki VS Jericho. For four years, I’ve been wanting this match in the Tokyo Dome, or on Dynamite. And now, this Wednesday, the match comes true. It’s a dream match for sure. First time ever! But for you, Minoru, it’s gonna be a nightmare. Get ready for some night sweats and night terrors just thinking what I’m gonna do to you, and even worse after the match. They talk about Blood & Guts this Wednesday. This match is gonna be far more violent than that.

“They call you The Murder Grampa, one of the most violent men who ever came outta Japan. Well, Suzuki, if there’s anybody that can match you blow for blow, experience for experience, match for match, it’s me. So Suzuki, I can’t wait to teach you a few very valuable lessons. And one of them is gonna be you should’ve never turned down The Learning Tree when I asked you to be my partner, and you never should’ve come to the ring during TV Time last week on Dynamite. Suzuki, this is it, one for the ages. Like I said, first time ever, Jericho, Suzuki, Learning Tree VS the most violent man in Japanese history, I can’t wait.

“We’ll see you on, Wednesday, Suzuki, you’re not gonna like it. Thanks, guys!” The Learning Tree has been rather delusional these days, but has he reached a new level with this? Or does he have something up his sleeve to help him survive Suzuki?

 

Rey Fenix w/ Alex Abrahantes VS Tony Nese w/ The Premier Athletes!

The Immortal Firebird just won big last night on Rampage alongside Penta El Zero Miedo, but there’s no slowing down with him! However, “Smart Mark” Sterling has everyone stop so his client can say something very important. Nese takes the mic, even as fans boo, and Nese says “When they said everything is bigger in Texas, I’m gonna be honest. I thought they were talking about the cars, the houses. But the reason why they say that, now i can see, is because all of you are terribly, terribly FAT!” The fans boo but Nese says yes, it upsets him, too. But it isn’t entirely their fault. It is not. It’s because they haven’t had real athletes to look up!

Who’re they looking up to? The under-500 Texas Rangers? So, Nese’s lawyer, THE GREATEST lawyer in pro-wrestling, Sterling has made a contract to give a lucky individual an opportunity. But more importantly, it gives every single piece of trash here tonight to see what a real athlete looks like! But here comes Fenix! Will he make Nese regret flexing on Texas?

The bell rings and the fans rally for “LUCHA! LUCHA!” Fenix and Nese circle, feel things out, and they tie up. Nese wrenches, wristlocks, and grinds the arm. Fenix moves around, uses ropes to flip through, and then he wrenches to wristlock back. The fans rally as Fenix twists the wrist, but Nese fights up. Fenix HEADBUTTS the arm, but Nese fights up again. Fenix wrenches, Nese rolls, and then Nese throat chops! The fans boo and the ref reprimands, but Nese SOBATS Fenix to run and BOOT! And WHEEL KICK! Cover, TWO! Fenix is still in this, but Nese soaks up the heat. Nese stalks Fenix but the fans chant “You Still Suck!”

Nese CLUBS Fenix with crossface forearms, taunts the fans, then he drags Fenix up. Fenix knees free, ducks ‘n’ dodges, then springboards, but the ropes give out! Cover, TWO! Nese drags Fenix by his leg, stomps away, and Fenix crawls away. Nese stalks Fenix, stomps the leg more, then brings him up. Nese CHOPS, Fenix CHOPS, repeat! The fans “WOO~!” as the CHOPS keep going! Fenix fires up and he CHOPS! Nese falls back against ropes while Fenix eggs him on! Nese kicks low, whips, but Fenix reverses and DROPKICKS! Nese bails out, Fenix gets the bad leg moving, and he builds speed, only for Sterling to save Nese!

Fenix slides out, glares at Sterling, then ROCKS Nese! Daivari steps up but that’s a distraction. Same for Josh Woods! The ref reprimands, Nese blocks the superkick to then SUPERKICK back! Fenix falls, Nese slides into the ring, and that lets the Premier Athletes mug Fenix! The fans boo but the ref misses it all as Collision goes picture in picture.

Fenix clutches his leg, drags himself up, and Daivari talks trash on the fans. Nese AX HANDLES Fenix, but then Fenix shoves Nese. Nese ROCKS Fenix, CHOPS him again, but Fenix just CHOPS back! Nese kicks the bad leg, then whips Fenix hard into railing! Fenix falls over, Nese flexes while soaking up heat, and he goes back for Fenix. Nese puts Fenix in the ring, stomps him, then paces around. Nese drags Fenix up, TOSSES him up, and the Premier Athletes mug Fenix again! Fenix tumbles away to the ramp while Abrahantes protests, but that just lets even Sterling get his shots in! Fenix storms up on Sterling and he runs away as Collision goes to break.

Collision returns and Nese covers, TWO! Fenix is still in this, but Nese pushes him around. Fenix CHOPS back! Fenix eggs Nese on, Nese SLAPS, so Fenix CHOPS! Nese fires a haymaker, talks trash, but Fenix fires body shots. Nese stands Fenix up to CHOP him back down! Nese drags Fenix to a cover, ONE! Nese is annoyed but he drags Fenix up. Fenix CHOPS, and CHOPS, and CHOPS, CHOPS, CHOPS! Nese throat chops! The ref reprimands, but Nese HOTSHOT BULLDOGS! Then he slingshots to roll Fenix up, TWO! Nese deadlifts to a POWERBOMB! Cover, TWO!! Fenix survives and the fans fire up!

Nese and the Premier Athletes are frustrated but the fans rally behind Fenix. Nese drags Fenix up, pushes him to a corner and he fires haymakers! The fans boo but Nese sits Fenix down. The ref counts, Nese lets off, and Nese brings down the kneepads. Nese goes side to side, but Fenix somersaults to SPIKE-RANA! Cover, TWO!! Nese survives, but Fenix BOOTS him! Fenix runs in to JUMP SOBAT! Nese wobbles, Fenix brings him around to wrench, but Daivari gets on the apron! Fenix runs Daivari off, but Nese runs in! Fenix DUMPS Nese out onto Daivari! The fans fire up and Fenix builds speed to FLY! Down go ALL the Premier Athletes!

The fans are thunderous for “A E DUB! A E DUB!” while Sterling panics. Fenix rises, and he puts Nese in. The fans rally behind Fenix as he climbs. Fenix reaches the top rope, but Sterling gets on the apron! So Fenix tightrope walk PENALTY KICKS him down! But Nese rolls Fenix! SOBAT HEEL KICK! Nese goes up and up and PREMIER 450! Cover, TWO!! Nese is furious that Fenix survives but the fans are thunderous! Nese drags himself over and brings Fenix up. Nese pump handles, lifts, but Fenix slips free and SUPERKICKS! Nese leans against ropes, Fenix goes up, tightrope PENALTY KICK! Fenix goes up to FROG SPLASH! Cover, Fenix wins!

Winner: Rey Fenix, by pinfall

It was practically 4v1 but Fenix still wins out! Will this momentum help Fenix head after whatever championship he wants after All In?

 

Tony Schiavone is in the ring.

He welcomes us back to the ESports Stadium, and welcomes in two men AEW loves, it’s FTR! The fans fire up as Cash Wheeler & Dax Harwood make their way out, having made their return just last week to help Tommy Billington against The Don Callis Family. FTR joins Schiavone in the ring and he brings up that big return to stand up to the Don Callis Family. Thankfully they did, so he asks their thoughts. Cash says if you ask him, Dynamite Kid Tommy Billington has one of the brightest futures in wrestling today, and they weren’t gonna let the Don Callis Family walk all over him.

But Cash also wants to talk FTR. It is no secret that the past two years has been the greatest run in their careers. The fans cheer that! Schiavone says the fans agree with Cash, and Cash says he thinks so, too. But while this was something Cash didn’t wanna talk about, when FTR was told they had time to talk tonight, he figured he should get it off his chest. It is no secret that Cash has been going through personal stuff that has dragged his name through the mud, is a cloud over his head, and he has had more stress than he could ever tell us all. Every single night, when he came out here, that was his escape.

This is where Cash could forget all that other crap, even when it wasn’t true. Every week, night after night, the fans helped Cash get through that. All that out there didn’t matter to him! It only mattered that he wrestled every match like it was his last, because he didn’t know if it was gonna be his last. So it isn’t a secret that Cash is a hot head, but it won’t happen outside this ring. Now the only people FTR has their eyes set on are The Young Bucks! So maybe, just maybe, time to go Buck Hunting!

Dax tells Schiavone that 2022 and 2023 were good times for FTR fans. FOUR world tag titles, THREE incredible matches with The Briscoes, and 58 MINUTES with Bullet Club Gold in Calgary. And the cherry on top: Beating the Bucks in front of 80 THOUSAND people in Wembley Stadium. But now, this is the present, and their win-loss record isn’t so great. Back in April, Dax had a serious back injury that he thought he wasn’t gonna come back from. But what really bothered him was The Bucks leap-frogging FTR as the best tag team in the world, and that didn’t sit well with him. The fans boo, they don’t like it either.

Dax says six weeks ago, he was sent home to rehab. He watched Collision, Dynamite and Rampage, all in hopes that “our EVPs, our fearless leaders,” would take this tag division back to the top and take it to the Promised Land. Dax was so let down. In six weeks, we haven’t seen The Bucks defend their titles. The fans boo that, too. Dax says maybe, just maybe, this is a big mistake. But starting next week, here in Arlington, Texas, FTR’s road to the AEW World Tag Team Championships begins. FTR starts their road back, and it ends at Wembley Stadium at All In!

And Dax knows sometimes he is rough to deal with, a little abrasive. But if you’ll give him a little grace, a little love, he promises FTR will give you all every bit of passion, love, tears, sweat and whatever else, so that they will become the THREE-TIME AEW World Tag Team Champions! The fans chant for “F T R! F T R!” and Dax tells The Bucks, “This whole thing’s for you. Top Guys, Out!” Just as AEW starts on the homestretch to All In 2024, FTR want to hit it out of the park! Will they get their shot at Matthew & Nicholas? Or are they overlooking The Acclaimed and their own shot at the gold?

 

Backstage interview with Hikaru Shida.

Lexy Nair is with the Shining Samurai and brings up the match tonight. Shida says stop, stop, stop. She came here for a fight, is still looking for a fight, and she wants to fight! Shida wants a fight… with DOCTOR BRITT BAKER!! Welcome back, by the way. And now Britt just wants to be TBS Champion? Get in line! Or does Britt not remember that Shida made her bleed once before? Shida will do it again this Wednesday on Dynamite: Blood & Guts! There could be a lot more blood than TBS bargained for, but will Shida make sure All In’s card is subject to change?

The Savior of the Backbreaker will challenge Mark Briscoe for the ROH World Championship next Friday at Death Before Dishonor, right in this same building!

Roddy keeps Ishii down with a double wristlock, but Ishii endures. Ishii fights up, fireman’s carries, but Roddy slips free. Roddy kicks Ishii low, stomps him to a corner, then digs his boots in. Roddy lets off to soak up heat, then he storms back up to CHOP!

Roddy ROCKS and CHOPS Ishii, then fires more hands. Roddy brings Ishii in for a suplex high and hard! Cover, TWO! Ishii stays in this, but Roddy stays on him with a chinlock stretch! Ishii endures, fights up, and he carries Roddy as a backpack! Roddy CLAWS Ishii’s face, and has a SLEEPER! Roddy brings Ishii back down into body scissors!

BREAKING NEWS for next week!

Battle of the Belts returns for the 11th edition, following live after Collision! What championships will be on the line as AEW continues towards All In?

 

Dustin Rhodes & The Von Erichs speak.

Kevin Von Erich says it is so great to be here in Texas with his sons and his friend. This is a great night. Kevin remembers working with Dusty, and he learned so much from him. There will never be another like him. Wrestling is changing, there are a lot of differences. Dustin knows, he’s been here a long time, so he can be a real benefit to Marshall & Ross. Dustin thanks Kevin, and says he watched Kevin for years, learned so much from his own father, and he is sure the storm has arrived. One of the greatest wrestling legacies right here in Texas! The Von Erichs, the Rhodes, together for the first time since 1978!

Dustin looks forward to this, and promises that if they listen and watch, they’ll head down a path that is already great. They’ve seen this trio in action before, so believe him when he says, Dustin’s got your back. Will Dustin & The Von Erichs make a natural fit here in AEW?

 

Mark Briscoe speaks.

“Now here we are in the Dog Days of Summer 2024, it’s hot as balls outside, and lemme tell you what else is heating up, the schedule for the ROH World Champion. Got a busy week next week. Next Friday, right here in Arlington, Texas, it’s ROH Death Before Dishonor, Mark Briscoe, Roderick Strong, for the ROH World title!” Mark tells Roddy that they’ve known each other a good long time now, came up in the game together. But Mark warns Roddy, Mark’s gotten wiser since last time. He’s gotten tougher since the last time! So Roddy better be ready! That’s Friday!

But after Friday, one thing’s for certain is that two days ago it was Wednesday! And let’s talk about Wednesday! Blood & Guts! Nashville, Tennessee! Team AEW VS The Elite. Let’s explain something to The Elite: pro-wrestling runs parallel to society in so many ways. And The Elite is the perfect example of what is wrong in the world today. They’re powerful, privileged, and they think they can step on the little man, step on the grind. But Team AEW represents the grind worldwide! Bring yo’ ass, because Mark will be disappointed if they don’t bring the fight! Let’s get violent, baby! RARARARA!

Vacated Unified AEW & ROH World Trios Championships: The Bang Bang Gang VS The Patriarchy!

Juice Robinson & The Gunns didn’t like that AEW management stripped them of these titles just because Jay White got hurt, but they were at least given this title opportunity to win the titles back. Will Rock Hard Robinson, Fully Cocked Colten, and… Austin make The Switchblade proud? Or will Christian Cage and his “sons,” Nick Wayne & Killswitch/Luchasaurus triumph together?

The introductions are made, the belts are displayed, and only one trio can leave with them after tonight!

Fans chant for “JUICE! JUICE! JUICE!” and they cheer as he rips off the shirt! The trios sort out and we start with Austin and Nick. Austin fires up, the fans are with him, and the two tie up.

Christian promised his family they’d have championships together, and it would seem his promise came true! The lights flicker, but they stay up. Was that just a glitch? Or is there something Christian is overlooking?


My Thoughts:

A great Collision here to start the “Road to Wembley” series in the ESports Stadium. The stage and ramp look great, but this new theme song they’re using instead of Elton John is not a good song. It has like marching band drums but still tries to be rock ‘n’ roll, they need to scrap it and try again. That aside, Darby VS Mortos was a great opener, and Darby of course won to bring momentum into Blood & Guts. Good promo from Darby to officially challenge Jack Perry for the TNT Championship, you can bet that’s happening. A shame for Skye Blue getting hurt tonight, but taking a crossbody from that high up is hard to judge. Hopefully the injury isn’t too severe. But good promo from Shida after to call out Britt, that’ll be a great match for Dynamite.

Great match from Fenix and Nese, and great win for Fenix, even if that was the extent of things. Great debut for Hologram/Holo.grm, formerly Aramis in AAA. He got to show a lot of what he can do, and even then I think there’s even more in his arsenal he held back. Great match from Roddy VS Ishii but I should’ve figured Taven & Bennett would show up to help Roddy win. Mark and Kyle running out there was logical, and no Cassidy was curious. It subtly builds that new moodiness to Cassidy, given he was in his more negative, dark denim and Pixies song mood on Dynamite. But great promo from Mark to hype up Blood & Guts as well as Death Before Dishonor.

Likewise, great promo from The Acclaimed with Billy making them get serious. Angry Acclaimed could make for some interesting stuff, especially if they kept it up towards their title match. Speaking of, FTR had a great promo but them setting a goal for another match with The Bucks at All In, I guess I was right to think that was the plan all along. Battle of the Belts 11 is coming so maybe that’s where we get Bucks VS Acclaimed? If that’s the case, then it feels like a given that Bucks win to go on to All In, which is a shame for The Acclaimed. Very good promo from Jericho to call out Suzuki, though I don’t think it added anything. They’re maybe leaning a little too hard into Jericho always needing TV time no matter the show, but whatever.

Good promo from Dusty & The Von Erichs, but did they really need to wait until AEW was back in Texas to get that trio going again? Well, given who the new trios champs are, I wouldn’t mind seeing Dusty & The Von Erichs going after The Patriarchy, especially with the obvious “Christian can bring up Dusty” promo waiting to be used. The trios championship match was great stuff, and they did a really good job making us think Bang Bang Gang was gonna win. But being Heels, Christian & The Patriarchy of course won via cheating. The flickering lights were a very subtle nod to The House of Black, but I would’ve preferred just a full tease, maybe just The House applauding from the tron and saying they’ll see Christian soon. And with Kip Sabian watching backstage, I feel like maybe Kip is the third man while Buddy Murphy is away.

My Score: 8.8/10

Backstage interview with The Outcasts.

Arkady Aura is with Saraya & Harley Cameron, and says we haven’t seen Saraya wrestle since her first round loss in the Women’s Owen Hart Cup. Harley speaks up and asks how that’s supposed to be Saraya’s fault. Why point the finger of blame at her? Maybe it is this company’s fault! Because Saraya has been spending this whole time training, getting “Wembley Ready,” and being an unproblematic icon! Saraya says Harley is right, and do you know why? Because AEW is scared of Saraya. The AEW Women’s Division is scared of her! Because she is the living legend, she understands.

Last year at All In, Saraya had the world at her feet! Now, they’re just keeping her off the show. Harley says doing All In Wembley without Saraya is like doing Beverly Hills Cop without Eddie Murphy! Saraya says yeah, that’s why they’re keeping her away. But they can’t do the show without her because she IS the show. All roads lead to Wembley, baby, and it doesn’t matter who she has to step on to get there. Then just who will The Outcasts take out in order to have their moment?

 

Chris Jericho & “Big Bill” Morrissey w/ Bryan Keith VS The Outrunners!

While The Learning Tree has to defend that “For The World” Championship this Wednesday on Dynamite, he and The Redwood are not shying away from competition. Will Jericho & Bill show the world they’re not afraid of big bad Minoru Suzuki? Or will Turbo Floyd & Truth Magnum be the ones to teach The Learning Tree a thing or two?

The teams sort out and Bill starts against Truth. The fans rally, Truth gets around to headlock, but Bill powers up to TOSS Truth away!

Bill knees Turbo low, CLUBS him down, but Truth tags back in. Truth runs and leaps, but Bill catches him! Bill grins, gives a thumbs up, then SLAMS Truth down! Bill says the fans know what’s up. But then Turbo tags in and The Outrunners DOUBLE CLUB Bill! Bill just frowns…! Bill turns around, he runs up, but The Outrunners dodge to DOUBLE DROPKICK!

Bill stays up but The Outrunners fire up. They spin and handshake, while flexing! Bill frowns, Truth sees and warns Turbo. Turbo looks and Bill DECKS him! Bill DECKS Truth, too! Bill then runs to BOOT Truth out of the ring! Turbo staggers up, Jericho keeps checking his phone, but Turbo CHOPS! Bill sighs and Turbo begs for mercy.

Winners: Chris Jericho & “Big Bill” Morrissey, by pinfall

Bad Apple Keith kicks Truth out of the ring, then he stands tall with his guys. Keith tells the Outrunners to respect Chris Jericho, but he and Bill won’t be around to help Jericho on Wednesday. Will Jericho be able to survive Minoru Suzuki in the shadow of Blood & Guts? Or will Suzuki tear down The Learning Tree #ForTheWorld?

Wait, speaking of Suzuki, here he comes! He has his own match tonight, but he wants to look Jericho in the eye one more time before Dynamite. Will the Meanest Man in the World make an example out of The Butcher?

Minoru Suzuki VS The Butcher!

Rampage returns and The Butcher is already in the ring. The bell rings and Butcher talks some smack on Suzuki. Butcher then fires a forearm, but Suzuki comes back with a forearm of his own. Butcher RAMS Suzuki into a corner, the ref counts, but Butcher lets off at 4. Suzuki eggs Butcher on but Butcher pie faces Suzuki. Butcher dares Suzuki to bring it, so Suzuki fires off fast hands and forearms! Suzuki ROCKS Butcher in the corner, then goes corner to corner, so he can BOOT! Butcher staggers, Suzuki snapmares him, then runs to PENALTY- NO! Butcher blocks the kick! Butcher CLUBS the leg, then trips Suzuki.

Butcher has a standing toehold as he traps one of Suzuki’s legs. Suzuki just eggs Butcher on! Butcher stomps the leg, drops an elbow on it, then he drags Suzuki up. Butcher CLUBS Suzuki, but Suzuki just snarls. Butcher CHOPS, but Suzuki isn’t impressed. Butcher CHOPS again, Suzuki eggs him on, so Butcher fires more CHOPS! Suzuki just laughs! Butcher ROCKS Suzuki, kicks low, then kicks again. Butcher reels Suzuki in to suplex high and hard! Cover, TWO! The fans rally for Suzuki and he fires body shots on Butcher. Suzuki ROCKS Butcher, but Butcher HEADBUTTS! Butcher vows to break Suzuki’s back!

Butcher half nelsons, but Suzuki slips around to waistlock. Butcher elbows free, runs, but Suzuki follows, drop steps to get around, and has the SLEEPER! Suzuki wrangles Butcher, squeezes tight, but Butcher endures. Suzuki spins Butcher around and reels him in, and the fans fire up for the Gotch Lift! Butcher’s big, but Suzuki still lifts him, holds him up, and then PILEDRIVERS!! Cover, Suzuki wins!

Winner: Minoru Suzuki, by pinfall

A gritty fight for Suzuki and Butcher, and this was in a normal match! What won’t Suzuki do to Jericho when it is FTW Rules?

 

The Conglomeration speaks.

Mark Briscoe says, “For those of you who may or may not have been living under a rock for the past couple months, you are looking at the group that has come to be known as The Conglomeration. You know about my main man with the game plan, OC, and Kyle O’Reilly. Let me introduce to you Tomohiro Ishii, henceforth to be known as Big Time! That’s right! Here in The Conglomeration, there is only two rules. First and foremost, you gotta be down to conglomerate. And secondly, you cannot in any way, shape or form, be a s*it head!” Kyle shrugs and nods, because it’s true.

Mark then says that brings us to the word of the day! The word of the day is… Discombobulation! Kyle asks the country of origin. American! Can he use it in a sentence? In the midst of Mark’s discombobulation, Roderick Strong cracked him in the jaw with a knee, and stood over him, holding up Mark’s ROH World Championship high in the air! Now that done pissed Mark off, Roddy! He’s known Roddy a long time, and Roddy knows better than that! So next week, Death Before Dishonor, Mark has something for Roddy!

But before that, tomorrow night’s Collision, #BigTime Ishii is going to take Roddy on 1v1! No Kingdom, no Conglomeration, and damn sure no Don Callis Family at ringside! Roddy VS Ishii, and we’ll show y’all how we do in The Conglomeration! Because they’re ’bout to RARARARARA!! The Chicken is all fired up, but will the Stone Pitbull be able to take a big bite out of the Savior of the Backbreaker?

 

Kris Statlander w/ Stokely Hathaway VS Sydni Winnell!

The Galaxy’s Greatest Traitor knows The Babe with the Power wants payback on her just as badly as she wants to run Willow’s life. But while Willow went and won the CMLL Women’s World Championship, Kris has just been grumbling and plotting with Big Stoke. Will Kris make an example out of Sydni tonight? Or will the Heart of Hutchinson, Kansas be unbreakable?

The bell rings and Kris DISCUS LARIATS right away! Stoke fires up but the fans are torn as Kris hauls Sydni back up. Kris ROCKS Sydni, CHOPS her, then fires off haymakers in the corner! The ref counts, Kris stomps a mudhole in, then she digs her boots in. The ref counts, Kris gets in his face about it, then goes back to Sydni. Kris drags Sydni up to snap suplex! Sydni flounders but Stokely smiles. Kris runs corner to corner, UPPERCUTS, then goes side to side, but Sydni ELBOWS her! Sydni fires forearm snow and has Kris in a corner! The fans fire up, Sydni fires up, and she whips. Kris reverses to then scoop and pop Sydni around!

Kris tucks Sydni in for STATURDAY NIGHT FEVER!! Cover, Kris wins!

Winner: Kris Statlander, by pinfall

As Stokely says, every night is #StaturdayNight, especially when Kris wins like that. She has Stoke stand on her while she does push-ups just to show off, but will Kris be ready when Willow returns with a vengeance?

 

Holo.grm loads up.

Whoever this mysterious masked man is, he is ready, and he promises that tomorrow night on Collision, we will see him debut! Will Holo.grm prove to be more than meets the eye?

 

BREAKING NEWS for Collision!

Collision is already stacked with Strong VS Ishii, Holo.grm’s debut, and the Unified World Trios Championship match, The Patriarchy VS The Bang Bang Gang, but Skye Blue’s challenge to Hikaru Shida has been answered! Will the Shining Samurai cut through the Chicago Skye to find her way back to the top of the ranks? We’ll also see Darby Allin return to action against The Beast Mortis! Will The Relentless One sharpen his edge for Blood & Guts? Plus, the Lumberjack match has been made official! Thunder Rosa VS Deonna Purrazzo, with other AEW stars all around ringside, will this be where La Mera Mera and The Virtuosa finally settle the score?

 

The Lucha Brothers w/ Alex Abrahantes VS Private Party!

Penta El Zero Miedo & Rey Fenix are looking to get in on the tag title chase, but so are Marq Quen & Isiah Kassidy. While The Acclaimed still have to shoot their shot at The Young Bucks, which team will be waiting for them on the other side?

The teams sort out and Fenix starts against Brother Zay. The fans rally, Zay offers a handshake, and Fenix takes it. But then Fenix ROCKS Zay!

Zay steps over, GAMANGIRI! Zay runs, but Fenix pops him up, only for Zay to RANA! Zay whips, Fenix reverses but Zay reverses back.

Quen steps up to Penta, and Penta says uno momento. Penta dramatically takes off his glove, but Quen says no, let him. “SHOTS! SHOTS!” Penta says okay, listen! “CERO! MIEDO!” Penta pie faces Quen, so Quen comes back to say “SHOTS!” “CERO! MIEDO!” “SHOTS!” They go back and forth, taunt for taunt, then Penta CHOPS! Quen is stinging but he composes himself. Quen comes back, CHOPS, but that hurts his hand more than it does Penta’s body! Penta says okay, and he unbuttons Quen’s shirt, to CHOP him down! The fans fire up with Penta as he does a “SHOTS! SHOTS!” dance! So Quen returns to fire forearms!

Quen ROCKS Penta, runs, but Penta SUPERKICKS! “CERO! MIEDO!” Penta runs but Quen BOOTS him down! Quen nods, runs up, but DOUBLE LARIATS collide! Both men stay up, Penta blocks a kick to HEEL KICK, only for Quen to ROUNDHOUSE back! Both men wobble, then they DOUBLE ROUNDHOUSE! Both men fall and the fans fire back up! Quen and Penta crawl, hot tags to Zay and Fenix! Fenix ROCKS Zay, Zay ROCKS Fenix, and Fenix fires off a strike fest! Fenix reels Zay in, “ANIMO!” But Zay wrenches out to facelock back! But Fenix fights the suplex, wrenches out, and KICKS Zay!

Fenix reels Zay in, but then Zay wrenches out. Zay reels Fenix back in, but Fenix wrenches out to mule kick. Fenix reels Zay in, “ANIMO!” but Zay wrenches out to ROCK Fenix! Zay eggs Fenix on, pie faces, and he fires a forearm! Fenix fires back, they go back and forth, and the fans rally up. Fenix and Zay huff ‘n’ puff, and they keep throwing shots! Zay gets the edge, but Fenix returns in kind! Rampage returns to single picture as they both throw forearms at the same time, again and again! It is fast and furious and the fans love it! Penta runs in just to BLAST Quen! The Lucha Bros mug Zay, double whip, but Quen is there for some SILLY STRONG!

Penta flounders out, Quen HOTSHOTS Fenix! Zay brings Fenix around, Quen goes up, AFTER PARTY STOMPS! Quen goes up and up to ESCALARA SENTON onto Penta! Zay SWANTON BOMBS Fenix! Cover, TWO!! Fenix survives and shocks Zay! The fans rally up and Zay brings Fenix up. Tag to Quen, and Private Party puts Fenix up top. Quen runs up, GIN- NO, Fenix holds onto the corner and Quen tumbles! Penta also waistlocks Zay but Zay fights free with elbows. Penta shoves Zay so that Fenix can tightrope walk PENALTY KICK! Then Penta SLINGBLADES Zay down! Quen gets in, he gets a SLINGBLADE, too!

The fans fire up for “CERO! MIEDO!” Penta brings Quen in but Quen slips free and shoves Penta into Fenix! Fenix lands on his firebird and Quen helps Zay up. GIN & JUICE!! Cover, but Penta returns to break it and hit a DESTROYER on Zay!! Quen is shocked while Little Rock is thunderous! “This is Awesome!” as “A E DUB!” gives us this main event. Quen drags Fenix up but Fenix CHOPS! Fenix eggs Quen on so Quen stomps away on him! Quen drags Fenix up, reels him in, but Fenix wrenches out to underhook and BUTTERFLY ANARCHY! Cover, TWO!! Fenix tags Penta and they aim at Zay. DOUBLE SUPERKICKS!

Quen is alone, “UNO! DOS! TRES!” DOUBLE SUPERKICKS for him, too! Then Penta drags Quen up and Fenix goes up! Tuck and “CERO! MIEDO!” LB PILEDRIVER!! Then Fenix DIVES onto Zay for good measure! Penta covers, Lucha Brothers win!

Winners: The Lucha Brothers, by pinfall

Private Party put up a fight to be sure, but Penta y Fenix just wanted it that much more! Will the Lucha Brothers be watching Blood & Guts very, very closely?


My Thoughts:

A great episode of Rampage here, and even the squash matches served some purpose. Kris crushing Sydni was mostly for momentum, but it felt like that was the first real showing of Kris’ Heel attitude with her trash talking the whole time. Jericho letting Bill do all the work against The Outrunners was naturally how that match was going, but it works perfectly in character and story for them. And Jericho crossing paths with Suzuki before Suzuki puts Butcher away rather quickly was good, too. The go home math is therefore even ahead of their FTW Championship match, but I wonder if Jericho was texting someone who could interfere for him since Keith & Bill can’t. But it can’t be Jeff Cobb, though, he’s locked in for NJPW’s G1 Climax.

Very good promo from The Outcasts, and while Toni Storm VS Mariah May is one title match and Mercedes Mone VS Britt Baker is another, Saraya could end up putting out an open challenge and it is answered by someone big from Stardom or CMLL for a first-time-ever kind of match to make All In even more historic. Great tag team main event from Lucha Brothers VS Private Party, with it mostly being for momentum. Private Party has finally been back on track now that both guys are healthy, but Lucha Bros winning out made sense. Penta & Fenix have been great as a team and as individuals, they’re both primed to take on just about any team or even singles champs if needed.

And great opener from The Conglomeration and The Undisputed Kingdom, even though I’m surprised they did such a Six Man Tag already. The Conglomeration winning could still feed into my idea that Cassidy & Kyle get an ROH Tag Team Championship match at Death Before Dishonor, but it also gives us a reason for Ishii VS Roddy tomorrow night. Great promo from Mark Briscoe in that, too, he continues to be one of the best underappreciated promo guys in all of wrestling today. I feel like Mark is going to retain the title against Roddy given how Shane Taylor is gunning for Mark, but that really depends on if Tony Khan is even paying attention to his own shows.

My Score: 8.7/10
