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! Riho runs, tilt-o-whirls and headscissors! Then she drop toeholds Storm onto ropes! Fans fire up, Riho runs, but Storm blocks the tiger feint!

Fans fire up, Riho brings Storm up while Saraya is losing her cool. Riho puts Storm in, goes back up top, and she DIVING DOUBLE STOMPS!! Storm sputters, Riho reels her in, NORTHERN LIGHTS! Bridging cover, TWO!! Storm survives and Saraya coaches her back up. Fans fire up as Riho steps on Storm to go back to the corner. Riho climbs again but Storm CHOPS her first!

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?

Mark Davis & Kyle Fletcher are still stateside, so they’re getting back in on the action!

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

Parker CLUBS Hook down, then stomps him. Parker taunts the Best Friends, flicks his hair gel at them, then goes back to Hook. Parker CLUBS Hook, tags Uno, and they mug Hook some more.

Not only is X-JAS furious, but Yuta says this is unbelievable. But will the Decoder have to worry about the much more Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil?


Backstage interview with The Outcasts & Anna Jay.

Renee Paquette is with Saraya, Ruby Soho & The Star of the Show to say they are teaming up for the first time in Six Woman Tag action. Saraya says yes they are, and sorry for cutting Renee off, Renee knows Saraya loves her, but… Isn’t Anna just the most beautiful thing you’ve ever seen? Ruby sighs and Saraya says “Liza Minnelli” is in a time out so shush. Anyway, Saraya thanks Anna for teaming with them, Lord knows they’ve needed some extra help around here. And also, they do have something in common that is giant, greasy, irritating, and needs to be handled. Oh, speaking of, here it comes.

Parker walks in, apologizes for not being here sooner, and then says hi to Ruby. But uh, yeah, the guys are ready to go, they’ll be out there for her, team effort! Um, no, Anna doesn’t want the boys out there. Especially Parker. What? But Saraya says this is why she loves Anna! She’s great. Yeah, she is. Hey, no, stop looking at Ruby. Saraya drags Ruby along, leaving Parker alone. Will the X-JAS still even be the X-JAS anymore with all this drama?


Tony Schiavone is in the ring.

Schiavone says that 28 years ago, in this town, at the Mall of America, two men were in the main event for the very first wrestling match ever on TNT. It was Sting VS Ric Flair. And Schiavone wants to also say that the final match on TNT back then was Sting VS Ric Flair. So it gives Schiavone a sense of pride to welcome one of Minnesota’s favorite sons, as well as STIIIING~! The Icon makes his way out to the ring and fans howl for him. Schiavone then introduces the Nature Boy, the Minnesota native, Ric Flair! Fans “WOO~!” as Flair makes his way out now, and hugs Sting in the ring.

Schiavone has them bring it in. Wednesday night, they announced the location of Sting’s final match at AEW Revolution, March 3rd, 2024. It will be Greensboro, North Carolina, where these two set the standard for a great televised wrestling event. Sting stands at 24-0, the longest undefeated streak standing, and we’re just two weeks away from tickets going on sale. Sting asks to take the mic, and he howls for the fans! The fans howl back and Sting says Minneapolis, lots of great memories here! Not only did he and Ric do the first and last WCW shows on TNT here, but they did the very big, gigantic- Oh, can’t really say that on TV, sorry. Copyright and stuff.

But the massive match at Mall of America, everyone knows about it. Sting’s had great matches here against and with Lex Luger, Bam Bam Bigelow, and lots of other great memories. So good to be back. Thank you for those memories. Thank you, Tony Khan, Tony Schiavone and the Nature Boy! WOO~! Ric takes the mic now, and he says, “Wow. From 1972 ’til today. And believe it or not, I’m still alive. And that’s saying a lot, heh. Because I’ve covered a lot of ground and had a lot of fun. But there are three or four people that are always gonna be special in my life, and you’ll love these names.

“Dusty Rhodes, Ricky The Dragon, and a guy that I think I’ve wrestled at least 15 hundred times over our career, the great–and the word ‘Icon’ does not even enough to begin to say what a man he is. I’m so serious, to be back in my hometown in this moment, and this ride. This is an incredible ride. Think about the history of our business. I’ve been there with him since ’88, and I’m gonna be there with him in the end. And man, that doesn’t happen in real-life, guys. And y’know what? We’ve stayed as respectful and honest with each other as the day we met, and that’s really unusual. You’re the man, brother.”

Fans cheer, and Ric says, “We’re gonna dance all night and dance a little longer. We’re gonna stay up all night and stay a little longer. I cannot tell you where we’ll be at like the old days, but you know we’ll be going AEW strong! WOO~!” Fans echo “WOO~!” with Ric and Schiavone says Ric will be there for Sting at AEW Revolution, tickets on sale soon! The Icon and Nature Boy are riding off into the night, and we have the when and where. Now all we need is, who faces Sting in his final match?


Backstage interview with Hikaru Shida, Kris Statlander & Skye Blue.

Renee is now with the Shining Samurai, the Galaxy’s Greatest and Chicago Skye as she says a lot has changed in the AEW Women’s Division after Full Gear. Shida lost the AEW Women’s World Championship to Toni Storm, and Statlander lost the AEW TBS Championship to Julia Hart, the same match Skye Blue was in. Does tonight feel like a way to get momentum back? Kris says it has been a hard pill to swallow. “You work so hard for something, and you come back from multiple injuries, you come back and change yourself so many times, and you obtain something so precious, and it’s just taken away in a matter of seconds.”

And worse yet, Kris wasn’t the one who got pinned. Oh, okay, blame Skye when Kris had plenty of chances to win the Triple Threat, and didn’t. Shida tells them to stop. She also lost a title, she also feels angry, but not towards them. Not towards her partners. They can take their anger out on their opponents tonight! Kris agrees with that, and so does Skye. Will this trio of stars be able to bring down The Outcasts and Star of the Show?


The Don Callis Family VS JAH-C

So what if they lost the Like A Dragon Street Fight? “Powerhouse” Will Hobbs did damage to Paul “The Giant” Wight like no man has ever done before, and there’s still a lot left in the tank for Kyle Fletcher & Konosuke Takeshita. Will they only be made stronger from that loss?

The teams sort out, Hobbs starts and Jah throws hands! Hobbs doesn’t even flinch! Jah runs, but Hobbs CLOBBERS him! In runs ??? but Hobbs picks him up to SPINEBUSTER! D runs in but Hobbs SPINEBUSTERS him, too! Fletcher & Konosuke step in, they all get a man up, and in synchronized formation, we get the WORLD’S STRONGEST SLAM, GRIMSTONE and BASTARD DRIVER!! Cover, The Don Callis Family wins!

Winners: The Don Callis Family, by pinfall

Fans boo but Callis celebrates with his “family.” Then Callis gets a mic to talk. “Chris Jericho and Kenny Omega! The Golden Jets! You put two of the greatest of all time into a tag team and what do you got? You got a team that could be the most dominant of all time. And I know that wins and losses matter here in All Elite Wrestling. But in the Don Callis Family, the only thing that matters is winning! And whether it’s singles, tag, or trios, the Don Callis Family will continue dominating until there’s nowhere for the Golden Jets to hide in AEW!” The ultimatum has been issued, will it only be a matter of time before AEW belongs to the DCF?


Prince Nana & Brian Cage talk with The Workhorsemen.

Nana says it is an unbelievable time for the Mogul Embassy. Cage says it’s always a great time. Nana says the Gates of Agony are in NJPW World Tag League, killing it and bringing home that money. But tonight, Nana needs to hire some help, and that brings in JD Drake & Anthony Henry. Nana has been watching them, he likes their style. That is why tonight, he needs their services. And this could be a huge opportunity for you both to step up to the plate and to prove a point. To impress Swerve Strickland, too. So tonight, Nana’s paid them, get the job done, and we’ll see if they can join the team. But he believes in them!

Nana & Cage head out, will Scrap metal & The Saint of Augusta help The Machine bring down the luchador trio in tonight’s main event?


Six Woman Tag: Anna Jay & The Outcasts VS Hikaru Shida, Skye Blue & Kris Statlander!

Both sides have said what’s on their mind, but it’s the emotions in their hearts that could make or break these team-ups. Will Saraya be able to keep things together between Anna and Ruby? Or will it be Shida who struggles to keep Skye and Kris on the same page?

The teams sort out and Kris starts against Anna. The fans rally as the two circle, then tie up. Kris waistlocks, SLAMS Anna, then drags her up to tag Shida. The former champs double whip, sweep and ELBOW Anna down. Then they shake hands to DOUBLE ELBOW DROP! Shida covers, TWO! Tag to Skye and she wrenches Anna to a JAWBREAKER! Anna blocks the superkick but not the BASEMENT ROUNDHOUSE! Skye pushes Anna around, but Kris tags herself in. Skye lets that go, to then tag herself back in! But Kris tags back in again! They argue, but then Shida tags herself in to get them both to stop.

But then Anna hot tags Saraya! Saraya gets around Shida, Shida gets around Saraya, but Saraya mule kicks Shida! Saraya runs, but Shida ENZIGURIS first! Shida fires up, the fans are with her, and Shida torture racks! Saraya endures, but Ruby says put her down! So Shida DROPS Saraya! Ruby storms in but Shdia kicks her low, and snap suplexes her onto Saraya! Fans fire up as Shida covers Saraya, TWO! Shida tags Skye in and Skye keeps Saraya from her corner. Skye whips, runs up and SHINING WIZARD on the ropes! But Anna distracts the ref so Saraya can keep Skye stuck, and Ruby ROUNDHOUSES Skye down!

Fans boo but Saraya howls to the moon. Saraya stomps Skye, insults her, and whips her to the corner as Rampage goes picture in picture.

Saraya bumps Skye off buckles, lets off to distract the ref, and Ruby digs her boot in! Anna pulls Skye’s hair to help out, then Saraya storms up to bump Skye off buckles. Tag to Ruby, she stomps away on Skye, but lets off as the ref counts. Saraya tells fans to shut up while Ruby drags Skye around. Skye throws body shots, then JAWBREAKERS! Ruby staggers back, Saraya tags in, and the Outcasts mug Skye! Saraya has Skye in the ropes to throw knee after knee! The ref counts, Saraya lets off, and she pushes Skye back in. Saraya keeps Skye from her corner, taunting Shida and Kris, then she stomps Skye.

Saraya bumps Skye off buckles, tags Anna and Anna CHOKES Skye! The ref counts, Anna lets off, and then Anna CHOKES Skye on ropes! The ref counts again, Anna lets off and distracts the ref so Saraya can SLAP Skye. Anna bumps Skye off buckles, Ruby tags in, and Anna ROCKS Skye. Ruby CHOPS Skye, stalks her to a corner, and stands her up, but Skye avoids the chop to CHOP! And CHOP! And CHOP! Skye and Ruby sputter and drop to their knees while Rampage goes to break.

Rampage returns and hot tag to Kris! She BLASTS Ruby, drags Saraya up and FISHERMAN BUSTERS! Cover, but Anna kicks it apart! Anna drags Saraya back and tags herself in. Anna stands Kris up, wrenches and HOOK KICKS! Then Saraya KNEES Kris down! Cover, TWO! Anna drags Kris up, QUEENSLAYER SLEEPER! But Kris powers up to back suplex free! Ruby runs in, STO! Skye SUPERKICKS Ruby! Saraya YAKUZA KICKS Skye! Shida ROCKS Saraya, whips her but Saraya reverses, only for Shida to JUMP KNEE! Anna BOOTS Shida! Kris runs up, but into a COMPLETE SHOT! Anna tags Ruby and they get Kris up.

Anna HOOK KICKS, then Ruby SUPERKICKS but Kris pulls Anna into it! Ruby panics, Kris tags Skye and Electric Chair Lifts Ruby! SLAM and CODE BLUE!! Cover, Skye’s team wins!

Winners: Hikaru Shida, Skye Blue & Kris Statlander, by pinfall

The dysfunction wasn’t enough to bring down Skye and Kris, they made it work and now celebrate together! As for Anna, she is furious with Ruby, and Saraya pulls Ruby along like an angry mother with her daughter. Are the Outcasts going to be on the outs sooner rather than later?

The implosion of Nana’s team all over a misunderstanding gives Penta’s team their first victory together! Will Penta, Komander y Vikingo take this momentum to next beat Action Andretti & Top Flight?

My Thoughts:

A really good Rampage here with a lot of tag team action. There must be something in Cassidy’s contract about opening shows, though, because that 8 Man Tag certainly felt main event worthy. But then it made sense in story that it had to go first so that the X-JAS could be in action before Anna, and Anna would tell Parker to stay in the back during her match because of how Ruby would be involved. Great win for Cassidy’s team, and great win for the Faces in the Women’s Trios match. Rather surprised Skye is getting her shot at Storm so soon. Yes, she interrupted Storm’s acceptance speech moment, and won here, but why not give us a promo segment between them first, then the match on Winter is Coming. But at the same time, debut in Montreal, they want it to be important.

Of course Don Callis Family squashes jobbers, but I like that we got to see Hobbs, Konosuke and Fletcher all in red ring gear. And seeing Don Callis’ Last Supper parody, it makes me think he wants a total of 11 faction members. I say 11 because “Judas” is already accounted for in Jericho. So far, he has five, Callis really is gonna have to recruit tag teams and/or trios if he wants an easier time of filling out the group. Really good main event from Penta’s team going against Cage & Workhorsemen. Of course the Faces win, but also it was clear the Workhorsemen were going to take the loss for the Heels. Kinda wished Cage would beat down the Workhorsemen after the loss, not because of the “misunderstanding” trope, but that’d probably take away from the Faces celebrating.

And given Rampage is prerecorded, turns out that was for the best this week. I’d only just heard today about how… controversial Ric Flair got in his part of the promo segment. Flair also tweeted about it, both apologizing and not apologizing for what he said. This is gonna be a long three months if everyone has to worry about Flair spouting off the stuff he got away with in the 1980s when he was much, MUCH younger. That aside, the entire segment was redundant anyway, we heard them talk on Dynamite, this is the same crowd that heard it all, it’s just a waste of time.

My Score: 8.5/10

The Maniac is 2-0 with a strong six points, but it may have cost him a leg! Will he have to watch out next round with that target on his back?


AEW shares footage from after Saturday Night Collision.

Eddie Kingston asks them what they want him to say. He knew this was gonna be tough. Tony Khan didn’t put any scrubs in this tournament. Eddie just maybe got too cocky, thinking that since he put two belts in the pot, he was a given winner. No one deserves to win, everything is earned. Eddie has Bryan next but he’s behind the 8 ball. Eddie says he will not do this. He will not go backwards. Humble in victory and humble in defeat. Eddie has to go heal up, Epsom salt bath, all that good stuff. The Mad King vows he will be ready for the American Dragon.

Bryan Danielson responds.

Bryan says he was actually impressed by the confidence Eddie had to put up both his titles for the tournament. But now, one loss and Eddie feels he’s behind the 8 ball? Against Bryan? Bryan fractured his orbital bone, needed surgery in two places, and yet he is coming into this tournament on fire! He is NOT behind the 8 ball, he is NOT going to be humble, he is here to win this and be the first AEW Triple Crown! Will Bryan’s Blue League start be Eddie’s Blue League end?


Tony Schiavone is backstage.

He brings up that Sting’s final match is coming. AEW Revolution, Sunday, March 3rd, 2024. And when it comes to where they’ll have Sting’s final match, they thought of the many great venues across the world, but what better place for Sting’s final match than Greensboro, North Carolina and the Greensboro Coliseum? So many great Sting matches were held there, but one in particular that comes to mind is 1988, Sting VS Ric Flair for the World Heavyweight Championship. So Greensboro Coliseum in North Carolina, get ready! Joining Schiavone now are those very legends, Sting and Ric Flair!

First off, 24-0, the longest win streak in AEW right now, what a fitting place for Sting to have his final match and maybe end on 25 than in Greensboro. Sting says yeah, wow, all those years ago, it was March 8th, 1988, his very first world title match against perhaps the greatest world champion of all time in The Nature Boy. Sting would’ve never guessed that night, 35 years later, we’d be here now. The memories, 45 minutes but a draw, commercial free, the first time in TV history that any sporting event even did that. But that’s not the real point of it. The big deal was being in there with Ric Flair. That was a make or break night, and so thank you, Ric, for putting Sting on the map.

Sting says yeah, that is a fitting place to end his career all these years later, Greensboro. Schiavone says so many great memories, and for him and Flair, forty years ago, does he remember? Oh, Flair knows. The words cannot be spoken to emphasize what is about to happen! Greensboro, where Sting, make no mistake, Ric didn’t make Sting a thing, Sting made himself! 45 MINUTES! Commercial free! With Flair! Unthinkable! Sting walked back there to 25 wrestlers going, “Jesus! You’re the man! You did it, Stinger!” He went out there and did it like a man! That’s what this business is all about.

Flair is 74 years old, standing next to the Icon, with his friend, Schiavone, and going back to Greensboro for what will be the greatest moment of his life, and God knows Flair’s had some good ones. He is honored to be there at Sting’s side! They shake hands, and Flair says the ACC Tournament and all that, nah, this is one for the ages! Highway 85 will be lined up from Richmond, all the way to Charlotte, like it always was! Sting, The Nature Boy, and AEW are coming to Greensboro! Let’s give it to ’em! “WOO~!” It’s the 80s all over again! Tickets on sale December 15th! IT’S SHOWTIME!

RJ City interviews “Timeless” Toni Storm.

Madame Storm seems rather bothered by something. RJ gets her attention but she tells him to sit. And don’t be so loud. RJ does sit, and Mariah May takes the title for Storm. RJ wants to bring up the championship acceptance speech last week. Yes, and she was rudely interrupted! Yeah, that’s true. How is she feeling? Storm says they partied well into the night, spent some time at the compound, JFK or one of the Kennedys was there. But now she is very fatigued, dehydrated, and has a touch of the gout. Oh, wow. Well, he wants to inform her that she is scheduled to defend the AEW Women’s World Championship. But given her state, is she worried at all?

Worried? Was Fatty Arbuckle worried? Was Jean Harlow worried? Was Frances bloody Farmer worried? No, they all turned out fine, and so will she. Before she goes, take off her shoe, she’s feeling swollen. RJ does take off her shoes for her, but will Storm have to focus before someone takes the title off her?


MJF is here!

Fans cheer as the AEW World Champion walks out here with the help of his cane, mic in the other hand. He has them cut his music, he gets into the ring, and the fans cheer him on. MJF gets right to it as he says “December 30th, Nassau Coliseum, Worlds End, it will be Samoa Joe VS yours truly for the grandest prize of ’em all, The Triple B, the AEW World Championship.” Fans cheer that, and MJF wants to be honest, though. When it comes to Joe as a person, eeeeeeh MJF doesn’t like him. But when it comes to Joe professional, MJF respects him.

MJF respects what Joe has done for the industry, and most importantly, when Joe came into AEW, he didn’t come here to line his pockets, he came here because he believes in those three letters. Fans cheer for “A E DUB! A E DUB!” and MJF says back in the early 2000s, MJF remembers getting a poster in his mailbox and it was for TNA Wrestling. And he remembers thinking, what even is this all about? He tuned in and couldn’t have been happier. He saw insane feats of athleticism, he saw a new cast of pro-wrestlers he’d never heard of before, but most of all, he saw one man among the rest, and that was the Samoan Submission Machine.

While Samoa Joe may’ve looked unconventional, he didn’t seem to care, and neither did any of the fans. Because every time Joe walked through the curtain, we knew he was the baddest man walking on God’s Green Earth. Now unfortunately, later on in his career, Joe’s talents were not recognized and he was not afforded the opportunity to be a world champion in the WWE. Fans boo, but MJF says what Joe did for this sport was bigger than that. “Joe proved you don’t have to be a massive male model bodybuilder to be a top guy in this sport. Samoa Joe broke the mold. Samoa Joe proved alternatives matter.

“And because of the road that Joe paved, it has allowed for a man like me to stand before you today. Without a guy like Joe, there may be no AEW. So Joe, very quickly, what I’d like to say, as much as this all pains me to admit, thank you.” Fans cheer that and join in, “Thank You, Joe! Thank You, Joe!” Yes, thank you, Joe! However… MJF has actually, though grateful to have gone down the road Joe paved, MJF isn’t too shabby himself, now is he? Fans cheer that. MJF managed to pave his own road, and built on a new alternative. He is AEW day one, and he has helped build this place brick by brick! Fans cheer “M J F! M J F!”

MJF says he did that by defeating some of the biggest names in this industry! Names like Cody Rhodes, CM Punk, Bryan Danielson, Chris Jericho, Jon Moxley, Kenny Omega. But of all the names MJF has had to face in this ring, the one name he looks back on, and not only was he lucky to win, he was lucky to survive, that is Joe. Samoa Joe is a wrestling legend. But December 30th is not about Joe’s legacy. It’s about MJF’s! December 30th is about answering the question, “Can Max Friedman outlast the Final Boss of this sport one more time?” So now, MJF is gonna make a promise. He promises to everyone watching at home and everyone here in this arena.

MJF promises that on December 30th, it doesn’t matter if his left knee keeps sliding in and out, if his right hip keeps popping in and out of socket, if his right shoulder is hanging on by a threat, or if Joe beats him within an inch of his life. Joe could be King Kong and Godzilla incarnate. Because MJF promises that on December 30th, he shows the world that it is not about the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog! And if you want to take what’s his… at Worlds End, you’ll have to put MJF down! MJF even breaks his cane!! Fans fire up with MJF, but then the lights go down.

Now there are lights blinking all over the place. MJF looks around, but THE DEVIL’S MINIONS ATTACK! Fans boo as one of them has a baseball bat!! But here comes Joe!! Joe said he’d have MJF’s back so here he is! He YANKS the big guy out, gets that bat, and he runs the rest off! Cameras have trouble here, but when things come back, a message types out on screen. “In the shadows, our game begins. Next week, MJF & Samoa Joe… will you face the unknown in a tag match? Are you a hero, Max?” The Devil has made his challenge to the champ! The fans chant “DO IT! DO IT!” and “He’s Our Scumbag!” Joe tries to get MJF to ignore all this, it’s what this Devil wants!

But MJF says “I’m so sick of your Scooby-Doo BS! LEMME EXPLAIN SOMETHING TO YOU! I am not dealing with your crap when I got that guy breathing down my neck at Worlds End. No no. I am going to take out all of your men, one by one. I am going to unmask you, you coward! And next week, you wanna tag match?! YOU’RE ON!!” Joe isn’t for it, but the challenge has been accepted. Will Joe just have to save MJF from himself?


Wardlow VS AR Fox!

Speaking of someone who wants to take everything away from MJF, the War Dog is on the warpath, just waiting for the right moment. After what we just saw, is MJF going to be served up on a silver platter?

But wait! Fox BOOTS Wardlow down off the apron! And then FLIES out! But Wardlow stays up! So Fox FLIES again! Direct hit but Wardlow is still up! Wardlow HEADBUTTS Fox, then whips him at the apron. Fox 619s on the apron to hit back! And then he goes up the corner to MOONSAULT, but Wardlow catches him! SLAM on the apron, and then Wardlow box jumps up to the apron. Wardlow storms in, fans rally up, and Wardlow drags Fox up for an OVERHEAD BELLY2BELLY! Now with both men in the ring, the bell finally sounds and this is actually a match. Wardlow storms up on Fox in the corner, to then TOSS him across the way!

Fox flounders out of the ring and Wardlow is having fun now. Wardlow goes out to stalk Fox, CLUB him on the back, and the ring count climbs. Wardlow hauls Fox up to TOSS him back in! Fans rally, Wardlow storms back in, and Wardlow drags Fox up. Fox shoves Wardlow but Wardlow CLUBS him! Wardlow trophy lifts, but Fox slips free! Wardlow runs in, but only gets buckles as Fox slips out to the apron! Fox swings to dropkick, then he goes up to 450 SPLASH! Cover, ONE!! Wardlow snarls and Fox is stunned! Fox runs in to BOOT! Wardlow doesn’t budge so Fox BOOTS him again! And again! Fox runs, but Wardlow pops him up for a SPINEBUSTER!

Wardlow winds up, to LARIAT Fox down! Wardlow then hauls Fox up, POWERBOMB! The symphony begins as fans want more! Wardlow drags Fox up, reels him back in, another POWERBOMB! And then Wardlow goes up the corner, to SWANTON BOMB!! Fans fire up and Wardlow still isn’t done! He reels Fox back in, to LAST RIDE POWERBOMB!!! The ref checks, Fox is OUT! Wardlow wins!

Winner: Wardlow, by pinfall

The remixed Powerbomb Symphony was too much for Fox, and Wardlow storms off. When and where will Wardlow sink his teeth into MJF?

Backstage interview with Action & Top Flight.

Renee is with them and congratulates them on the big win. So good to see Dante back, how is that leg? But then Penta El Zero Miedo and Alex Abrahantes step in. Penta offers a fist bump, and Dante accepts. They’re all good given Penta was responsible for the broken leg in that Reach for the Sky Ladder match. But then Penta counts, one, two, three. Bring ’em in. Komander and El Hijo Del Vikingo join Penta, that makes one, two, three. And Cero Miedo! Dante nods, when and where will we see this top tier trios match go down?

The Princess of the Black Throne successfully defended her gold on Collision against Lady Frost, but now she takes on the Queen of Joshi! And for this match, Dealer’s Choice says submissions can NOT win the match! Then if Julia can’t be Hartless, will she just have to be ruthless?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see if the House Always Wins!

The bell rings and fans rally up behind Julia. Julia soaks it up, but Emi laughs at it. Emi and Julia smirk as they stare down, then they approach.

Another defense in the books, Julia is still golden! Will she keep on winning with such unpredictable rules?


Backstage interview with Mariah May.

RJ City is with Miss May and says we saw her at Full Gear and last week, but we also know she’s here, hungry for more. Mariah says yes she is. She knows she’s the new girl and all, but she did just come from Stardom, and she had quite the run. She is dying to show us what she can do. So thanks for connecting her with Toni Storm. RJ says it’s nothing, he and Toni go way back, used to play squash together. No, really, RJ is quite the curator. And Mariah knows Toni likes him, so this means the world to her. No, no, Toni makes things happen. He’s just happy to help. Mariah seems a bit disappointed, but RJ says without further ado, go get ’em!

Mariah knocks on Tony Khan’s door, steps inside, and talks with the boss. Will this Tony be just as accommodating as Toni Storm?


Christian Cage is here!

The TNT Champion, the Patriarch, makes his way to the ring, security right behind him. Captain Charisma then gets a mic while the fans boo, and he says what he’d like to do right now is go ahead and invite the Rated R Superstar to this ring right now. Fans fire up for that, and Christian says he knows Edge is back there. Fans shout “ADAAAAM~!” and Christian says he just wants to talk about what Edge said on Collision. So if Edge doesn’t mind making his presence felt, Christian would appreciate it. But still no response? Did Christian make sure to do this when Edge isn’t here?

Christian waits, gets upset, and asks Adam “ADAAAM~!” that he’d like to speak with him in this ring. Please, someone, hit the mic, get Adam’s attention, something. Or should Christian go back there to speak with him? “You think you know him.” And here comes Edge!! Fans fire up as Edge storms into the ring, and of course the security becomes a wall in front of Christian. Edge paces and Christian says listen, management wanted this, not him. Fans boo that garbage, but Christian says they don’t need security. He asks these men to vacate the ring. They shrug and bail out, even though Edge looks ready to pounce.

Christian brings up that last week, Edge challenged him to a match for the TNT Championship on December 6th, Dynamite in Montreal. Christian is here to tell Edge that they won’t make it to Montreal. They get face to face and fans fire up. Christian says they won’t make it to Montreal because “I’m sorry.” What? Edge is also confused, and Christian says he knows what we’re all thinking. Christian is only sorry because he’s all alone, right? Fans confirm and they chant “BULL~ SHID!” at him! Christian asks them to understand. Edge took out “The Prodigy” Nick Wayne, he took out Killswitch/Luchasaurus, but that’s not why Christian’s sorry.

He won’t lie, he was pissed about what Edge did to Lucha- er, Killswitch, with not one but two Con-Chair-Tos. Christian was so mad, he jumped out of his house, got in his car and just drove around. He needed to think, needed fresh air. And somewhere during that trip, it turned into one of reflection. It turned into a roadtrip of soul searching, digging down deep, trying to understand why he became the person that he is, this guy who says and does such unsavory things. And then he remembered those times he and Edge would borrow Christian’s mom’s Ford Taurus. They nicknamed it “Toby the Taurus” because they took it everywhere when they were trying to make it.

They didn’t care where they went, they were broke, not a dime to their names, but they didn’t care. They were having the time of their lives! They knew they were gonna make it. They didn’t know how, but they knew they would. And dammit, did they ever make it, huh? They went on to become multiple-time tag team champions, and Christian will say it, the greatest tag team that ever lived! Fans do cheer that. Christian and Edge then became multiple time world champions, two of the greatest careers in this sport. But take the wrestling away, and it runs even deeper. Everyone knows Edge grew up with a single mom. Everyone knows that Edge didn’t have a father figure.

Fans boo, already sensing where this is going! Christian wants Edge to listen! Yes, he is the Patriarch of AEW, but in no way is he suggesting he’s Edge’s father. Christian is Edge’s brother. And in turn, Christian’s father became like Edge’s father. Edge went on family trips, sat at the dinner table, slept over! When Edge needed discipline, Christian’s dad treated him the same as his own kids. He picked Edge up, brushed him off, hugged him and cheered him on. To this very day, he is still Edge’s biggest fan. So listen, Christian will just say it. They weren’t just random guys thrown together. “I love you, man.” Fans boo that one!

Christian says they’re family. And listen, when Edge’s mom passed a few years ago, that was the hardest time of Edge’s life. Christian knows that. But some time before, she said, “What I wouldn’t give to see you guys in that ring, teaming one last time.” Christian started thinking, that they should do this for her! Let’s go on the journey together again, like Edge wanted! Edge & Christian, for Judy “Judemeister” Copeland! Let’s do it for her! Fans cheer for Judy, but Edge is conflicted. Christian drops the mic, holds the belt, and then rushes Edge! Edge LOW BLOWS Christian first!! Fans cheer as Christian leans on Edge in pain.

Christian slumps down and Edge lets him fall. Fans want that one more time, but Edge gets the mic. “Nice try, dumbass.” Edge tells him to sit up when he’s talking. Edge grabs the belt, tells Christian to shine it up real nice. Hell, sleep with it if he wants. Because next week, the title’s coming home with Edge! Oh, and one more thing, Edge almost forgot. G F Y!! Fans are thunderous as Edge takes his leave. Will Edge crush Christian’s spirit as payback for everything he’s said and done?


AEW Continental Classic, Gold League: Jay White VS Swerve Strickland!

The Switchblade and the Realest are both 1-0 with three points, and now they are going to battle in what could be the decisive battle in this block! With no Juice Robinson, no Ass Boys, no Prince Nana or Brian Cage, who will prove to be the slipperiest snake in all of AEW?

The bell rings and fans fire up for “Whose House?” “SWERVE’S HOUSE!” White still throws guns up, but he and Swerve then tie up.

Fans fire up and security helps Swerve, but then White drags him back in. White puts Swerve in the ring, mockingly asks, “Whose House?” and he stomps Swerve. White wrenches the arm, CLUBS it, and then CHOPS! White again mockingly asks, “Whose House?” “SWERVE’S HOUSE!” White CHOPS Swerve, but Swerve BOOTS back! And CHOPS! And CHOPS! And CHOPS! Swerve whips, White holds ropes, then he dumps Swerve out. But Swerve pulls hair! White HOTSHOTS Swerve, builds speed and slides, but Swerve catches him to BACK SUPLEX White into the front row! Fans are getting a much more interactive experience than expected!

Swerve drags White back up, White grabs at fans desperately, but the fans can’t do anything for him as Swerve dumps White back over. Swerve pushes White around, goes up the apron, and then he FLYING STOMPS White down! Fans fire up, Swerve puts White in, and then aims from the apron. But White gets a leg in the ropes! Swerve claws at White, pushes him away, but White BOOTS Swerve, then DRAPING DDTS! Fans rally for Swerve but White drags Swerve up to CHOP! Fans “WOO~!” and Dynamite goes picture in picture.

White sits Swerve up again, to CHOP him back down! White drags Swerve up again, goes up a corner, and mocks Swerve, to then hop back down and CHOP again! Swerve writhes, White drags him up, and White TOSSES Swerve out of the ring. White goes out after Swerve, but he CHOPS back! Swerve then clinches to hit a BACKBREAKER! White writhes, Swerve goes up to the apron again, and he BOOTS White back down! Fans rally up, Swerve drags White into the ring, and then clamps on a cording hold. White grabs ropes, the ref counts, Swerve takes a swing, but White EXPLODERS Swerve up and out!

White goes out after Swerve, hauls him up, and APRON GOURD BUSTERS! Swerve writhes and flounders but White refreshes the ring count. White then RAMS Swerve into steel steps! Swerve gets in the ring, White pursues and covers, TWO! White clamps onto Swerve’s bad arm, then traps the other, and he stretches Swerve out as Dynamite returns to single picture. Swerve fights up, but White throws him down by hair! White again mocks the chant, “Whose House?” Bryan commends Swerve on toughness. He had a brutal Texas Deathmatch with Hangman Page, and the only thing taped up is that arm.

Speaking of, White clamps onto the arms again, but Swerve endures. Swerve fights up, throws body shots, but White throws him down by his hair! Fans boo, Swerve gets up to SLAP White! Swerve CHOPS, White waistlocks, but Swerve swings elbows. White gets under to SAIDO! White then storms up to drag Swerve up, CORNER HALF HATCH! Cover, TWO! Swerve is still in this but White scuffs him. White mockingly says he needs his points. White knees Swerve low, and again, but Swerve blocks the chop! Swerve wrenches, gets around, HAMMERLOCK BACK SUPLEX! White writhes and fans fire up!

Swerve snarls, storms up on White, and he ROCKS him! Body shot! Forearm! Body shot! Repeat! Swerve snapmares, rolls, but White catches the Complete Shot, but then Swerve slips out of the Urenage! Swerve goes to a corner, White runs in but Swerve goes up and over to O’Conner and Eddy Gordo RANA! White tumbles, staggers, into the SOMERSAULT COMPLETE SHOT! And then a gator roll into a deadlift suplex! Fans fire up as Swerve covers, TWO!! White survives and Swerve grows frustrated. Fans still rally up behind Swerve, and he grabs White’s wrist. White resists but Swerve still drags him up.

White reaches out, kicks Swerve’s legs, then gets free. White swings, Swerve dodges and comes back, COMPLETE SHOT from White! White then waistlocks to deadlift GERMAN SUPLEX! White runs up, but Swerve DISCUS LARIATS! Fans are thunderous while both men are down and Bryan says, “How incredible are these two men?!” A standing count starts, both men stir, and White flounders to ropes. “This is Awesome!” as White comes back, he and Swerve go forehead to forehead, and they trade junkyard dog headbutts. Swerve laughs, White throws hands! Swerve throws them back! They go back and forth, faster and faster!

Fans rally up as the shots keep flying, and Swerve DECKS White! Fans fire up, Swerve smiles, but White grabs at Swerve’s legs. Swerve grabs at White, White CHOP BLOCKS! White then gets the bad arm, clinches, and URENAGES! Cover, TWO!! Swerve is still in this, this isn’t anything compared to Texas Death! White clamps on with the sleeper, though, and he hauls Swerve up. Swerve throws elbows, but White wrangles him for a FUJIWARA ARMBAR! Fans fire up, Swerve endures, White CLUBS away on the bad arm and pulls! Swerve reaches out, fights around, but White keeps him from ropes by pulling hair!

Swerve and White roll together, but Swerve slips around to get White’s arms trapped! Swerve stands on that arm! Finger gun and BANG!! The arm goes back and the fans tell Swerve he’s sick! Swerve grins, storms up on White and drags him up again. But White fights the half nelson and puts Swerve in a corner. The ref counts, White arm-drags free, but then Swerve sends him at the ref! White stops himself, LOW- NO! Swerve blocks the kick, he was paying attention to last week! Swerve slips around and hits a BACKBREAKER! Fans fire up, Swerve runs to HOUSE CALL!!

Swerve’s bad arm holds him back, but then White clinches! BLADERUNNER!! But Swerve flops out of the ring!! White hurries out after Swerve, pushes him in, and hurries to clinch. Swerve fights up, fights the sleeper, and hits an ELBOW BREAKER! But White still rolls Swerve up with his other arm! TWO! White storms up, Swerve trips and jackknife bridges, TWO!! BLADE- NO, Swerve slips free, but White fights the half nelson! And CHOPS!

Swerve CHOPS back! White CHOPS! We get the 15 minute mark, so time’s ticking away! Swerve CHOPS, White CHOPS, repeat! White kicks and CHOPS, then reels Swerve in. Swerve uses a leg to get free but White has him again, SNAP SLEEPER SUPLEX!! Then the clinch, BLADE- ARM-DRAG!! Cradle cover, SWERVE WINS!!!

Winner: Swerve Strickland, by pinfall (gains 3 points; White earns 0)

White is shocked that he got beat! The #Jay1 aside, these points go to The Realest! Will the Gold League soon be whose house?

My Thoughts:

A great Dynamite, with awesome Continental Classic matches. But also really good non-tournament matches, such as that Trios Match. Great return to action for Dante Martin, great win for him and his trio, and those three could really build themselves up into trios title contenders with matches like this. And really good TBS Championship match Julia and Emi, though they need to get better at bringing up how House Rules work. No Ropebreaks, the ring count is to 20, and there’s Dealer’s Choice. They just kinda threw out there that this was gonna be a No Submission Falls, which was honestly a brilliant move by Emi. But in the end, of course Julia wins, it’s still too early for her to lose this belt.

Wardlow squashing- heck, he demolished AR Fox, is fine for Wardlow but a shame for Fox. Wardlow is still staying strong as he waits for the right moment to go after MJF again, but maybe, just maybe, he’s been going after MJF all along as that big guy among the “gimp squad” that tried to get MJF tonight. Great promo from MJF to not just praise Joe but also bury Punk without having to actually reference Punk going back to WWE. Joe made the save as expected, and now they’re getting dragged into a tag match against any two of those goons, and who knows who they are really, but can’t wait to see how this all goes.

Awesome stuff from Christian and Edge tonight, a brilliant move for Christian to so blatantly play to Edge’s emotions just to save his own ass. But of course it was also brilliant for Edge to not fall for it at all and get the better of Christian. But uh, AEW needs to be better at live censoring their shows, that GFY got right past them. That aside, that TNT Championship match is going to be awesome stuff, could go either way, but I still want to see Luchasaurus betray Christian and finally become his own man-dinosaur. Not Jack Perry’s tag partner, not Christian’s henchman, but his own man doing his own stuff.

And as I said at the start, awesome Continental Classic matches. Bryan Danielson also being on commentary for these was a good move, that could easily be a thing he does after he retires, except I think part of retiring is staying home with the family. Anyway, Moxley VS Lethal was a great opening match, and I figured Moxley would win that. Maybe Lethal realizes he really has let Team Triple J weaken him with all their antics. Rush VS Briscoe then raised the bar, though with a somewhat scary moment where I thought Rush took a shot to the head but it was really a concern for his leg. Rush winning was a fair choice, and that puts pressure on a possible 0-2 VS 0-2, Lethal VS Briscoe in the next round. I say “possible” because Tony Khan doesn’t reveal the entire schedule at once.

And then just an awesome, borderline PPV level match of Swerve VS White. The fans were strongly behind Swerve, I was behind Swerve, so it’s great to see Swerve get to 2-0. Swerve’s becoming my top choice for Gold League and maybe even the entire thing. Swerve having the ROH World, NJPW Strong Openweight and the AEW Continental Championships, he could really do a lot with traveling between the three brands. Mogul Embassy is already in ROH given they’re ROH World Six Man Champions, and the Gates are in NJPW right now for World Tag League, so Swerve joining them pretty much everywhere, all four of them having belts, that’s great stuff to me.

My Score: 9/10
