PLAY BY PLAY

Tiffany Stratton speaks.

“I’m ready. Tiffany’s Epiphanies, Roadblock Edition. I can’t believe we are 25 days away from NXT Stand & Deliver. But a ton of superstars have some serious roadblocks standing in their way between here and Los Angeles. Starting with Dijak and Tony D’Angelo in a Jailhouse Street Fight. The loser will be locked in a cell. How humiliating. Boys, use anything and everything you can get your hands on to prevent yourselves from becoming a meme. Can we talk about Toxic Attraction real quick? Jacy Jayne, Gigi Dolin. The break-up, so tragic. The backstab, brutal. The return, ruthless. Personally, I think this should’ve happened sooner. These girls are gonna rip each other apart.

“And I’m just obsessed with what Grayson Waller’s doing right now. But I kinda think he’s pissed off Shawn Michaels. Don’t push HBK too far, or else he’s got two words for ya. A Six Man Tag Team match for respect. A one on one battle of leadership. And culminating with our main event: Roxanne Perez defends her NXT Women’s Championship against Meiko Satomura. Our champion’s the underdog. The challenger is a living legend. And I will be watching very closely, because whomever walks out as champion, I’ll see you in LA. All roads lead to the City of Angels, my kind of town.

“In this case, it isn’t about the journey, it’s totally about the destination. Tootles!” Daddy’s Little Rich Girl is ready for gold, but who makes it through to Stand & Deliver?

 

Jailhouse Street Fight: DIJAK VS Tony D’Angelo w/ Channing Lorenzo!

Backstage interview with Roxanne Perez.

McKenzie Mitchell is with the NXT Women’s Champion, and says this is her biggest challenge tonight. How is she feeling? Pretty anxious. Roxie’s been dreaming of this since six months ago when Meiko beat her. And obviously, Roxie wants a different outcome. She has busted her ass to make sure it will be different. Meiko will test her, but that is why Roxie has exhausted all her resources at the Performance Center. She has worked harder than ever before, pushed past her physical limits, and done everything she can do. She knows that this isn’t her first title defense, but it is the biggest.

One, because she wants- No, she NEEDS to walk into Stand & Deliver. And if that’s not pressure enough, she has to beat a living legend! Not many people can claim a win over Meiko, so beating her would be as big as when Roxie won the title. Roxie is anxious, nervous, her heart is beating out of her chest, but she is ready. And she will leave it all in that ring to keep the title. Will the Prodigy be gamer enough to beat the Final Boss?

 

Kiana James is in her office.

She has Gina reschedule some things and Josh Briggs walks in. He heard she had a new office, but wow, this is nice. Business is great. Gina heads out and Kiana asks what’s up. Briggs isn’t trying to get in anyone’s business, but she knows that Fallon and Brooks mean the world to him. Their happiness is his happiness. She understands. Brooks’ happiness is her happiness, too. And it finally feels like her and Fallon are clicking. Yeah, that’s good, but it just seems like Jensen hasn’t gotten over what happened on Valentine’s Day. The roses clearly means he likes her. Kiana snatches the card away and puts it in a folder.

She knows Brooks has a big heart, how can you not love him? Briggs says Jensen loves Kiana so much, he’d die for her. He’d get hit by a bus just so she could cross the street. Briggs just wants Jensen to be happy, and Kiana is his happiness. Kiana admits, things have been off. And some acquisitions fell into her lap, so she’s busy at work. But she just wants to make this right. Then she has to take the lead. Jensen is terrified to make a mistake. Aw, she didn’t know that. She appreciates Briggs looking out for his best friend. He promised to do right by him, so here he is. Kiana says she’ll give Jensen a call for a make-up date. Okay, sounds good.

Briggs heads out but Kiana seems nervous about the card. Are things all good between the lovebirds?

 

Gallus is in the ring.

The NXT Tag Team Champions have the mics, and Mark Coffey tells Pretty Deadly, “It’s one thing to talk tough when you’re all alone. It’s an entirely different thing when you’re in front of the Gallus boys. Come prove us wrong.” Wolfgang agrees, and tells Elton & Kit, “After what you did, there’s a receipt waiting on you two English rejects! Come and get it!” Pretty Deadly make their entrance, but they’re on the perch! Elton gloats that the English chaps are standing tall for the Scottish to look up to, like it’s always been. Mark is confused, he thought they wanted a “chin wag,” a talk face to face. What, have they changed their minds?

Oh, dear, dear Markus. Pretty Deadly can see their ugly, disgusting, sweaty faces. But this is a face to face. OH SHUT UP! Wolfgang asks what they have to do to get Pretty Deadly in the ring when they always run away. Oh, that Wolfgang is so to the point. No nonsense. Rather harsh, but they admire that. And it’s obvious what they want: the precious tag team titles! Pretty Deadly had those stolen from them! And just as they were on the precipice to take them back, Gallus stepped in and ruined their lives! Mark says Gallus didn’t come back for Pretty Deadly. They came back for each and every single team in NXT! In the ring, at the bar, or in the street, if there’s a fight, you can beat mark and Wolfie will be there!

Now, Pretty Deadly roughed them up. They can’t live without the belts? Then here’s the deal. Gallus dares Pretty Deadly to come and take them! Well then, that sounds like a spiffy idea! They’ll give Gallus a jolly good thrashing, right now! Oh, okay. Mark keeps Wolfie calm as Elton & Kit get in the ring. But then Wolfgang SLINGSHOTS them both in! Mark DECKS Kit! Wolfgang DECKS Elton! Then Mark adds onto Elton! Kit gets run off, Elton gets a back drop! Gallus whips Elton but Elton bails out! Pretty Deadly regroups and vows this will be the last time Gallus gets one over on them! But which team will stand and deliver when they go 2v2?

 

Lyra Valkyria speaks.

“Whether decided by intent, or a tapestry of fate, a randomizer landed on my name. To some, knowledge is power. But I didn’t come to NXT to seek information. I came to seek a battle. I delved into this new realm wanting to ascend. And after dealing with the swallows and the sheer waters, the skies have opened up, and my eye is on the NXT Women’s Championship. Meiko Satomura, our flight paths have crossed before. But next time, the course will be corrected. Roxanne Perez, we’ve been on very different journeys, but fate will ultimately decide if we collide. Whoever is NXT Women’s Champion, remember, I only travel as the crow flies: straight to the top.”

It seems Tiffany isn’t the only one wanting something shiny. Will the Morrigan have to contend with the spoiled brat before going after the spoils?

 

Ilja Dragunov speaks.

“The eyes are the window to the soul. But JD McDonagh, you have no soul. You discover happiness by inflicting anguish. Enjoyment for you comes from… Snapping bones and breaking a man’s spirit. But no matter the depths you go to find serenity, you will never break my will. Because the Czar is UN! BE! SIEG! BAR!” Will Dragunov be the one who breaks the Irish Ace?

Winners: Bron Breakker & The Creed Brothers, by pinfall

A big win for the NXT Champion and Diamond Mine! Jinder and Indus Sher won’t get the respect they want, will they let this one go?

 

Shawn Michaels takes off his headset.

Matt Bloom, aka A-Train, asks HBK if he really wants to go through with this. He’s not sure, but he feels he has to. He appreciates A-Train worrying about him, but he’s got this. Will the Showstopper let the Grayson Waller Effect affect him?

 

NXT presents The Grayson Waller Effect.

The 21st Century Success Story is in the ring for the “most important” episode yet! And he doesn’t have time for the fans’ questions, this is about him being face to face with his guest. Ladies and gentlemen, the Heartbreak Kid, Shawn Michaels! HBK makes his entrance and fans fire up, but Waller makes fun of the entrance. Waller “congratulates” the fans for being fans of HBK. But to be honest, as they sing the theme song, 10 year old Grayson would be freaking out right now, just like these fans. But Grayson now would tell that kid, “One day, you’re gonna be so disappointed. Because Shawn Michaels isn’t who you think he is. Don’t be a Shawn guy! Be a Bret guy.”

HBK says wow! We’re going there now? Taking the gloves off already, huh? But “H B Shizzle” has to say, he remembers when him and Waller used to be cool. Waller would come to HBK, ask him some advice, and now suddenly, Waller hates him? Why? Because ever since winning the Iron Survivor Challenge at Deadline, Waller said he was gonna take over. Black ‘n’ gold 2.0, the Waller Era! He’s the best on the mic, the best in the ring, and his social media game is unmatched! Fans boo but Waller says he couldn’t care less who he pisses off or who likes him, he just wants to be the guy.

But for some reason, HBK of all people, is treating Waller the same Vince treated HBK. Remember? Vince held HBK back because he wasn’t big enough, he wasn’t a draw, but then HBK proved Vince wrong. Congrats! But guess what? Now HBK is Vince! And Waller doesn’t know why HBK is doing this. Is HBK jealous? Is it that Waller doesn’t kiss HBK’s ass? Is it because Waller doesn’t go back there with the rest of the fanboys and talks about growing up watching Shawn? Is it because Waller doesn’t give HBK the clout by posing like he used to? Waller is the biggest star here, but HBK is holding him back.

Holding him back?! Waller has to be kidding! HBK cut the reins loose on Waller a long time ago. But if Waller wants to know why he isn’t The Guy right now, HBK will tell him: HE LOST! What happened at New Year’s Evil, HBK made it clear that it was not Waller’s fault. That’s why they had the cage match. We wanted a decisive winner, and we got that. Waller took his shot and missed. And Waller is mad, he wants to blame someone so he blames HBK. But to be honest, the guy he should blame is the guy in the mirror. Waller says he’ll look in the mirror. HBK should do the same. The only reason HBK is in the chair is because his best friend had a heart attack.

Waller says that’s not opinion, that is FACT. So he’s just gonna keep throwing digs, huh? Okay, HBK wasn’t in charge here before. HBK stepped in because his friend needed him, it was the least he could do after what HHH did for him. But here’s something Waller needs to come to grips with. Hunter was in charge, but guess what? HBK is the one directing the ship now. Fans rally behind HBK, but Waller says right, HBK is steering the ship, into an iceberg! Waller is the biggest star and yet he’s not on Stand & Deliver, because he’d steal the show, and HBK can’t have that. After WrestleMania weekend, maybe Waller ends up on the cut list.

Because HBK’s team is so desperate for a star, they don’t see the one right in front of them. Waller is NXT, and without him, this show is nothing! HBK says that’s Waller’s problem! Waller thinks he’s bigger than the brand, but NXT is built on the collective. It has never been about one person. #WeAreNXT isn’t a catchphrase, it is the way of life here. This brand was built on the shoulders of Finn Balor, Kevin Owens, Sami Zayn, the list goes on and on. DIY, Undisputed Era, Io Shirai, Asuka, Rhea Ripley, Bianca Belair! Bron and Roxanne are the champs now, but it is more than them. There’s Tony D, Wes Lee, the Creeds, and even Waller.

But Waller is one part. Oh, yay, he’s part of it~! Aw, Shawn’s good. H e’s pulling at the heartstrings. No one does better at hyping a crowd than HBK. The theatrics, the emotional connection! But Waller sees right through it. There was always, “I’m the Icon, I’m Mr. WrestleMania, I’m the main event.” Since when was HBK a team player? Well, yeah, when it came to HBK’s career, he was all about him. But that changed when he came to NXT. As soon as he walked in here, he could feel the vibe was different. He knew this place was special. Waller again mocks HBK. Why? Because it leads you to Raw and SmackDown?

Who actually makes it to RawDown? Bron, sure. Melo, maybe. Zoey Stark, sure! But Waller is sick of this! He is sick of everyone backstage saying they wanna be a superstar but doing nothing about it! He is sick of the crowd, #WeAreNXT, but it’s the same people every week, in the same clothes because they’re too poor to afford anything different. But Waller is most sick of having a boss who has the biggest star ever right in front of him, and- ENOUGH!! HBK is mad now! Waller can run HBK down, but people a lot better than him have done it. They’ve tried for 40 YEARS! Jump on the band wagon.

But do NOT ever run down NXT. Fans cheer that! Why? Because it pisses him off? YES! Then do something about it. Waller and HBK, Stand & Deliver! If HBK loves the brand, show everyone he’s got one match left! Take off the suit, put on the HBK hat, and tune up the band one last time! Fans want to see it! HBK takes off the jacket! HBK says for over a decade, HBK has had the greatest ever wanting WrestleMania dream matches. Waller, you think you’re special? People have been asking for matches from HBK, hell! They’ve been backing the truck up to his door year after year! They’ve done it so often, the drivers know his address by heart.

And while Waller thinks he’s something great, but he’s just the guy doing it in 2023. This has happened before and it’ll happen again. And nothing, and HBK means nothing, would thrill him more than to whoop Waller’s ass at Stand & Deliver. But the reality is, there’s someone who wants to whip Waller’s ass a lot more than HBK. And this man bleeds NXT more than HBK! Waller, you’re getting your wish to have a match at Stand & Deliver, but not against the Heartbreak Kid. Waller, your opponent is… JOHNNY WRESTLING!! Gargano is back, and he wants after the man who sent him packing! Gargano runs in, fires off on Waller, and fans are loving this!

Waller staggers up, but he avoids the Superkick! Fans are thunderous for this one, will Johnny Wrestling teach Grayson Waller a lesson in what it really takes to reach the top in NXT?

 

Gigi Dolin VS Jacy Jayne!

After the Toxic Goddess was banished, Toxic Attraction fell apart, and now Gigi returns as a Toxic Avenger! Will she get back at Jacy for being selfish and cruel? Or will the Toxic Traitor make NXT all about her?

The bell rings and Gigi dodges a boot! They tie up, go around, and Gigi puts Jacy on ropes. The ref counts, Gigi lets off but pulls hair. Jacy SLAPS Gigi, then tells her to SUCK IT! But Gigi TACKLES Jacy out of the ring! Gigi rains down fists and fans fire up! Jacy turns things around to throw hands, but Gigi turns it back around. Gigi drags Jacy up, puts her in, and storms up. Gigi blocks a boot to STO! Cover, TWO! Gigi clamps onto Jacy’s arms and says Jacy did this to her! Gigi SLAPS Jacy! Jacy shoves Gigi away, runs for it, but Gigi pursues. Jacy climbs the barriers, but Gigi drags her back to ringside!

They go back in the ring, Jacy wants mercy, but bails out again. Gigi pursues, but Jacy DECKS her with a sucker punch! Jacy grins and looks under the ring. Jacy brings out a chair! The ref reprimands, but Gigi BOOTS Jacy first! Fans rally for Gigi while NXT goes picture in picture.

Gigi shouts at Jacy, stalks her, then drags her up. Gigi RAMS Jacy into barriers! Fans fire up and Gigi kicks Jacy around. Gigi stands Jacy up to RAM her into more barriers! Gigi drags Jacy up again, RAMS her into the apron, then refreshes the ring count. Gigi drags Jacy up, puts her in the ring, and covers, TWO! Gigi snarls while Jacy crawls to a corner. Gigi runs in, but Jacy dodges to ENZIGURI! Jacy BOOTS Gigi into buckles! Jacy goes corner to corner, runs in, but the CANNONBALL hits buckles! Gigi covers, TWO! Gigi snarls more, and she tells Jacy that she won’t stop. Gigi gives Jacy Kawada Kicks!

Gigi huffs and puffs while Jacy crawls to ropes. Gigi runs in to CLOBBER Jacy, then whips her corner to corner to ROCK her! Gigi WRINGS Jacy’s arm out, runs, and PENALTY KICKS! Cover, TWO! Gigi is frustrated but that anger only feeds her. Gigi drags Jacy up, but Jacy swings. Gigi turns her around to STO again! Cover, TWO! Jacy is still in this and Gigi is beside herself. Gigi watches Jacy go to ropes, runs in, but Jacy drop toeholds her into ropes! Jacy runs in but is put on the apron Gigi shoulder sin but only gets a KNEE! They’re both on the apron now, and Jacy BOOTS Gigi down! Jacy then CANNONBALLS to the floor!

Jacy drags Gigi back up, puts her back in, covers, TWO! Jacy clamps onto Gigi’s hair to throw down elbows! Jacy wraps on a top wristlock with chinbar and she thrashes Gigi around. Fans rally for Gigi as she endures. NXT returns to single picture and Gigi pries at the hold. Gigi fights up, but Jacy throws her down! Jacy clamps on a chinlock and grinds Gigi back down. Jacy talks trash about Gigi’s mom being right, but Gigi fights up. Jacy knees low, whips Gigi to ropes, and RAMS into her! Jacy snapmares Gigi, KICKS her in the back, then mule kicks her down! Cover, TWO! Jacy drags Gigi up, whips her to a corner, then runs in to back body block!

Jacy then goes outside, grabs that chair, and she shrieks as she gets back in the ring. Jacy chases the ref off, and puts the chair around Gigi’s head! Jacy says this is about her, but refs rush in to stop this! Jacy climbs a corner, but the refs remove the chair from the equation. Jacy is furious, but they won’t let her get to Gigi. Jacy leaves, vowing that this isn’t over. They may not be Toxic Attraction, but will this only get more toxic from here?

 

Fallon and Jensen talk backstage.

Fallon says she feels awful about Valentine’s Day, but he says it’s okay. She was coming from a good place, so he apologizes for not getting over it sooner. Fallon says that’s okay. They’re both just glad the other is alright. Briggs walks in and says he just came from Kiana’s. Kiana loves those flowers on her desk! Flowers? Sure, whatever, but what did she say? Well, Kiana said she’s gonna call him tonight, and they can start where they left off. At least, if that’s what Jensen wants. Duh that’s what he wants! Jensen hugs Briggs and Fallon, and the text comes in! Jensen braces himself and answers the call. “Hey, girl.”

Jensen smiles, and says tonight? Okay, that’s cool. Alright, see you later. Jensen plays cool but is clearly excited. And Fallon is pretty sure those flowers weren’t from him given how confused he looked. Briggs sighs. Fallon says she knew it all along! Briggs can’t believe it, but yeah, Fallon was right. So what’re they gonna do about it? Fallon has an idea. Uh oh. What does that mean for the romcom that is Jensen’s love life?

 

Bron Breakker walks back out to the ring.

The NXT Champion wasn’t scheduled to do this but he gets the mic. He says he was supposed to wait until next week to say what he’s about to say, but it’s time. It is time for the biggest match on the biggest stage. No more obstacles, no more roadblocks, NXT Stand & Deliver, Carmelo Hayes! Where you at, man? Fans cheer for “MEL~O! MEL~O!” And here comes HIM! Melo tells Bron that he said it best: it is time. Time for their paths to finally cross. Two of the biggest stars in NXT! Listen to the crowd! They want it! Bron wants it, and Melo wants it. Melo joins Bron in the ring, and Bron says he couldn’t agree more. They’ve been on their own paths, doing their own thing.

And every single time they’d have their title defenses, and Bron would win, the very next time he was out here, someone else’s music would hit. Disappointment would set in because it wasn’t Melo. But listen, during all this time, Bron kept tabs on Melo. He watched all Melo’s matches. Well, guess what? Melo did, too. It didn’t matter where and when Bron was on the card, whether he was closing or opening, if Melo was closing or opening, somewhere in the middle, Melo always made it a point to watch Bron. Bron asks if Melo remembers that meeting they both had with HBK & HHH. Of course Melo remembers that.

They sat down in the room, and HHH told them “NXT’s about to change.” Great opportunities for young new superstars! August, 2021. They picked Bron and Melo and said that this brand was theirs for the taking. And the last 18 months, Melo’s proved himself, and Bron’s proved himself. They both run fast, they both run hard, but there’s nowhere else for them to go except head on. Melo says here is where he’s say that’s all it is, but it just doesn’t feel right. So to keep this short and sweet, Bron just has to put that NXT Championship on the line, and they’ll see each other at Stand & Deliver.

Melo offers a handshake, and Bron accepts it. But Melo will add this: Melo has never been second to nobody. Bron says April 1st, we’ll see about that. Bron raises the belt, but whose Hollywood story has the happy ending?

 

Thea Hail meditates with Tyler Bate.

The Big Strong Boi says when the mind wanders, gently return to the breath. Breathe in… And out, letting go of the stress and tension. How does she feel? Amazing. That’s music to Bate’s ears. Mr. Chase walks over and asks if Thea’s making progress. Oh, absolutely. Thea has been through hard times, but hopefully this practice will give her the tools to deal with any hardships. Thea thanks Bate for this, but Bate says it has been his pleasure. But remember that no one is beyond fear, but we must learn to move through that fear. And Thea’s a big strong gurl, she’s got this. Thanks so much!

And Mr. Chase, good luck tonight. Namaste. Thea and Chase head out, but Duke Hudson just has to say, “I can’t believe anyone would buy that snake oil you’re selling.” Duke is skeptical, but will what Bate taught Thea help her help Chase U get a big win?

Andre Chase w/ Chase U VS Joe Gacy w/ The Schism!

NXT is picture in picture as both sides make their entrance. The Schism may be four roots, one tree, but will this be a #TeachableMoment that even big trees can be cut down?

The bell rings and the two circle. They tie up, go around, and Gacy puts Chase on the ropes. Chase gets free on his own, and they reset. They tie up, Chase headlocks but Gacy powers out. Chase runs Gacy over! Cover, ONE! Chase hits a headlock takeover! Gacy fights up, powers out, but Chase goes up and around to roll Gacy up! TWO, and Chase headlocks again. Gacy powers up to hit a BIG back suplex! Gacy snarls and he pushes Chase around. Gacy insults Chase, headlocks, but Chase RAMS him into a corner! The ref counts, Gacy turns things around and he ROCKS Chase with a forearm! Chase turns things around to CHOP!

Gacy sputters to another corner, Chase CHOPS him again! Chase whips corner to corner, Gacy reverses but Chase goes up and over, only for Gacy to CLOBBER him! Gacy keeps moving, ELBOW DROP! Cover, TWO! Gacy frowns but he drags Chase up to DECK him! And then DECK him again! NXT returns to single picture as Chase counter punches! Chase fires off, whips, but Gacy reverses again. Chase goes up an dover, ducks ‘n’ dodges, then FLYING LARIATS! Chase throws down fast hands and fans fire up! Gacy staggers up but he blocks a kick to KNEE Chase down! Gacy reels Chase in to suplex and BRAINBUSTER! Cover, TWO!

Chase hangs tough and Gacy snarls in frustration. Gacy talks trash on Chase, “You’re nothing but a liar!” Gacy drags Chase up, fireman’s carries, but Chase throws elbows! Chase elbows from a corner, BOOTS him, then fires up to fire off haymakers! Chase whips, Gacy reverses but Chase reverses back, RUSSIAN LEG SWEEP! Fans fire up, Chase has them spell it out! C! H! A! S! E! U! What’s that spell? CHASE U!! Gacy swings, into the SIDE EFFECT! Cover, TWO! Fans rally for Chase U, Chase gets the legs and steps through, but Gacy boots him away! Chase comes back, he and Gacy trade forearms, then Gacy BOOTS!

Gacy runs, into a SUPERKICK! Chase runs, into the URENAGE! Thea and Duke coach Chase up but Gacy brings him up. Chase throws a forearm but Gacy gives it back. Chase throws a haymaker, Gacy HEADBUTTS! Chase throws a haymaker, Gacy gives it back, they go back and forth, faster and faster! Gacy gets the edge, runs to the corner to SPLASH, then brings Chase to the top rope! Gacy ROCKS Chase, climbs up after him, but Chase resists the lift! Chase throws body shots, CLUBS away on Gacy’s back, then SUNSET FLIP POWERBOMBS!! Cover, TWO!! Gacy survives and Thea does the breathing exercises. But she can’t keep her cool, she storms up to Ava Raine!

Fans fire up as Thea shouts at Ava but Ava just smiles. Thea and Chase high-five, but Gacy hits the UPSIDE-DOWN!! Cover, Gacy wins!!

Winner: Joe Gacy, by pinfall

Thea is stunned! Her excitement in conquering her fears only cost Chase! Will Duke Hudson ultimately be right about growing up? Will The Schism’s roots soon break Chase U up from within?

 

Alba Fyre speaks.

“Tonight, the moon shines full over us. So together, Isla, we will perform a Full Moon Ritual. This cycle makes curious beings of us all. Once the longest reigning champions, now Kayden Carter & Katana Chance struggle to remain bound together. And has there ever truly been harmony between Tatum Paxley and Ivy Nile?” Isla says nope! Alba says their reflections show that Alba is as ferocious a beast as what hatched from “that orb of night,” and that Isla is as cunning as the ones that dance in the shadows. Together, they are unrivaled. Tonight, they charge in the moonlight. Next week, they march forwards towards claiming their lot!

Does that mean Fyre & Dawn will burn down anyone between them and the NXT Women’s Tag Team Championships?

 

Chase U regroups backstage.

Thea is sorry about Mr. Chase’s loss. But today was a big day for her. She overcame her fear! She did it! She did what Tyler told her, and it worked! Chase is proud that Thea did that. Tyler Bate’s methods are really connecting, Thea really put Ava in her place. They should bring Tyler in more often. But Duke says they seem to be forgetting something. Chase LOST! Chase U has BEEN losing! And to the guy who was trashing them! Duke, where’s this coming from? Duke says if Chase wants a teachable moment, here it is! They are an institution of LOSERS! They even celebrate it! They gave someone an award for winning a single match!

Duke thought they were better than that but apparently not. Chase U is PATHETIC! They’re not a school, they’re a JOKE!! Duke storms off, but is he right? Is there nothing to celebrate about Chase U?

 

Backstage interview with Wes Lee.

McKenzie says the world is still buzzing about the North American Championship Open Challenges. Yes, things have been so intense, but Wes loves it! Did you see that brawl? Everyone was in it! They fought in the back, all the way to ringside, and he had no idea who would win. But then lo and behold, after four months of absence, Nathan Frazer returns and gives Wes one hell of a match! Wes knows he loved it. Did McKenzie love it? Yeah! Wes says you gotta love all the commotion, the chaos, the madness! And guess what? Wait, again? YEP! Next week! The fans love it so-

Axiom walks in and says he’s happy to have found Wes. Axiom was so close to answering that Open Challenge and we could all see the fire in his eyes. But Axiom was held back, Nathan beat him to it, but Axiom is vowing right now, next week will be Wes VS Axiom. Wes says that if Axiom makes it to the ring first, there’s no doubt they’ll tear it up. But until then, good luck. Fist bump and high-five, but will the Undeniable Truth have the solution to the Open Challenge variables?

 

NXT Women’s Championship: Roxanne Perez VS Meiko Satomura!

The Prodigy has loved pro-wrestling ever since she played the video games as a child. And now, she’s living the dream as a champion in the WWE! But will all that gaming, all that dreaming, all that training, prepare her for the Final Boss? Or is this Roadblock too much for her to overcome?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and one way or another, someone is going to stand and deliver!

The bell rings, Roxie offers a handshake and Meiko takes it, to reel Roxie in for a serious stare down. Meiko then lets Roxie go, and NXT goes picture in picture.

The two circle, feel things out, and tie up. Meiko gets the arm, wrenches to wristlock, but Roxie rolls, kips up, only for Meiko to wrangle her back down! Roxie rolls back, stands up again, but Meiko wrenches to wristlock. Roxie reaches out for ropes but Meiko yanks her away. Roxie tries the other side but Meiko brings her away again. Roxie uses ropes to flip but Meiko KICKS Roxie in the leg, to then GUT WRENCH SUPLEX! Cover, TWO! Meiko facelocks and she grinds, but Roxie slips free to facelock. Meiko slips out to facelock back, but Roxie rolls to wrench. Meiko switches to a waistlock and then shifts to a chinbar.

Roxie endures, fans rally as she fights up, but Meiko wrenches and YANKS an arm. Meiko wrenches again, YANKS the arm again, then wristlocks. Roxie cartwheels and headscissors to a O’Conner Bridge! But Meiko makes it a SLEEPER! Roxie flails, rolls back to a cover, TWO!! Meiko lets Roxie go in time and the two stand off. They circle and feel things out again. Roxie gets around to waistlock, ripcord and whip, but Meiko goes up and over and FLYING ARM-DRAGS Roxie, to an STF!! Roxie flails, scrambles, reaches out, and NXT returns to single picture as she gets the ROPEBREAK! Meiko lets off and fans applaud.

Roxie resets and circles with Meiko again. Fans duel as the two knuckle lock. They go shoulder to shoulder in a test of strength and Meiko bends Roxie back! Roxie drops and it’s a cover, TWO as Roxie gets an arm up! Mieko pushes it down, TWO as Roxie gets the other arm up. Meiko pushes that down, TWO as Roxie kips up! Roxie powers Meiko back but Meiko knees low, arm-drags Roxie down to a cover, TWO! Meiko wrenches but Roxie throws forearms! Meiko SOBATS! Meiko whips, Roxie ducks ‘n ‘dodges but Meiko FLYING SHOULDERS! Roxie goes to ropes, Meiko is right on her to snapmare and straitjacket!

Fans rally as Roxie endures the stretch. Roxie fights up, she powers up and turns things around but Meiko turns it back around! Meiko brings Roxie to her knees, and makes it a STRAITJACKET RACK! Roxie endures, gets her legs free and rolls back to put the straitjacket on Meiko! Meiko fights up, arm-drags free, but Roxie stands up. Roxie dodges, rolls back, and headscissors Meiko to the apron! Fans fire up as Roxie runs, to DIVE into a forearm! Meiko gets back in, she UPPERCUTS, then UPPERCUTS again! Meiko wrenches, wristlocks, KICKS, LEG SWEEPS, and KNEE DROPS! Cover, TWO!

Roxie hangs tough but Meiko stays on her. Meiko whips Roxie to a corner, runs in and forearm smashes! Roxie wobbles, Meiko whips her corner to corner then runs back in. Roxie slips out, slides under and sunset flips, TWO! Meiko gets a leg, she drags Roxie around and steps through, DEEP toehold! Roxie endures, kicks at Meiko, but Meiko just KICKS the bad leg! And kicks it again! SPINNING TOEHOLD! Meiko goes back to the deep standing toehold, but Roxie rolls over! Roxie floats to a headlock, but Meiko fights up. Meiko throws body shots, powers out, and RAMS shoulders! Roxie stays up so Meiko eggs her own.

Roxie runs to RAM Meiko, but Meiko shakes her head. She SLAPS Roxie, SLAPS her, SLAP SLAP SLAP! Fans fire up, Meiko runs, and she CLOBBERS Roxie! Roxie roars as she stands up! Roxie CHOPS, CHOPS, CHOP CHOP CHOP! Roxie fires off forearms, but Meiko shoves her away to BUZZSAW! Roxie staggers up and shakes her head, but Meiko KICKS! And KICKS! But Roxie blocks a kick to DRAGON SCREW! Fans fire up with Roxie, she runs in at Meiko, and UPPERCUTS in the corner! Roxie runs, returns, and UPPERCUTS again! Roxie shrieks to UPPERCUT a third time! Wrench and RUSSIAN- NO, Meiko throws Roxie down!

Meiko runs, handsprings, but Roxie dodges the knee drop! Roxie runs to SHOTGUN Meiko out! Fans fire up and Roxie builds speed to DIVE! Direct hit at the ramp! Fans are thunderous as Roxie drags Meiko up and into the ring. Roxie goes to the corner, climbs up top, but Meiko kicks her legs out! Meiko climbs up after Roxie, brings her up, but Roxie throws body shots. Roxie slips under, SMACKS Meiko off buckles, then goes back up. SUPER RUSSIAN- NO, Meiko fights that, throws elbows, but Roxie climbs up higher! SUPER SUNSET- NO, Meiko holds the ropes! Meiko ELBOWS Roxie down! Roxie staggers, Meiko MULE KICKS her!

Meiko adjusts up top, leaps, SPLASH onto BOOTS!! Cover, TWO!!! Meiko survives and Roxie grits her teeth. Roxie drags Meiko but Meiko KICKS her from below! And again!

Fans rally as Meiko fires off Kawada Kicks! Roxie flops over, but she sits up slowly. Meiko aims, and KICKS her back down! Roxie sits up, but she avoids Scorpio Rising! Roll-up, with a bridge, ROXIE WINS!!!

Winner: Roxanne Perez, by pinfall (still NXT Women’s Champion)

After taking a lot of damage, The Prodigy defeats the Final Boss! She was able to stand and deliver, and Meiko respects that. Meiko personally hands the belt over to Roxie and fans applaud the sportsmanship. Meiko helps Roxie stand and raises her hand in victory, and then Roxie falls over in exhaustion. The ref and Meiko check her, the ref calls for reinforcements. They check, then medics come in. Can Roxie even hear any of them talking to her? Meiko and the fans are concerned as the refs call for the EMT now. A stretcher is brought out, the team hustles in, and Booker T leaves commentary to check his former student.

The medical team braces Roxie’s neck, puts her on the backboard, and then get her on the stretcher. HBK also shows up at ringside. Fans applaud as Roxie manages a response. They get her oxygen, then get her to the back. They hurry to the exit and to the ambulance. Roxanne won, but will we see it was a pyrrhic victory in the end?


My Thoughts:

Roadblock as a concept was introduced in such a ham-fisted way years ago *cough* Vince */cough* but NXT has made it work, and that includes tonight. I did not expect Tiffany Stratton to give us the opening roll, and I groaned a bit at seeing that being the case, but Tiffany is committed to her character, she delivered it perfectly, and it is clear she is gonna be the Heel coming after the women’s title, even with Valkyria having her own promo about that. Chances are, we’ll get a contenders match to make it official, Tiffany can beat Valkyria and maybe even Stevie Turner at the same time to make it clear who is going to Stand & Deliver.

And speaking of the women’s title, that was an awesome main event. Roxie once again showed heart in fighting as the underdog, and even then doesn’t hit her finisher but gets a quick pin win to retain. And then quite the shocking twist having her pass out and need medical attention. I don’t think they’ll vacate the title, but it’s a good tease that Roxie’s health is in question. Roxie will have a heroic comeback to confront whoever is her contender and we’ll get one good promo between them before the match at Stand & Deliver.

Great move having the Jailhouse match open the night, and that match was great stuff. Fans love Tony, Tony has Stacks, Stacks helps Tony win, it just works. But Tony’s gonna have to wait his turn when it comes to titles. Good promo from Wes and Axiom, and I’m intrigued by how Axiom is on the edge of becoming a Heel. He’s being a bit smarmy about how he should’ve had this and should’ve had that. But I do hope he and Wes have a title match next week. I’m not sure if I wanna see Axiom fight his way through chaos, or pull of something sneaky like running in from the back side or even pops out from under the ring. Either way, it’ll be good.

Really good Six Man from Bron & Creeds VS Jinder & Indus Sher. Also it seems Jinder is officially Indus Sher, they had a group theme for their entrance. I figured the Faces would win that, Bron needs the momentum going into Stand & Deliver. And I like that, at least in kayfabe, Bron wanted to say things now and not waste time next week. Bron and Melo have a really good promo together, they make their match official, and as I’ve said, this has to be where Bron loses the title and moves on to RawDown after this. Bron could even be a Raw After Mania debut to go right after the US Championship.

Good stuff out of the ongoing story of Jensen and Kiana, and of course there were flowers from another guy Kiana’s dating. It wasn’t Zack since that was her cousin, but there are endless possibilities for Kiana’s other guy. Honestly, it really should be someone signed to NXT, maybe someone that’s been showing up on Level Up, and this is that guy’s way of getting on TV. Not only will all this tear down Fallon and Kiana as a team, we could get a good feud out of Jensen and “the other guy,” fighting for the heart of Kiana. Also, the meltdown of Fallon and Kiana is lining up with Isla & Alba rising up. Good promo from those two, I’m expecting a Triple Threat Tag of Isla & Alba VS KC Squared VS Tatum & Ivy, big win for Isla & Alba to go to Stand & Deliver and get those belts.

Really good match from Gigi and Jacy, and great win for Gigi, but of course Jacy beats her down. This really isn’t over, I bet they have a rematch at Stand & Deliver that raises the bar, might even have a stipulation. The winner of that can then be seen as contender to whoever comes out NXT Women’s Champion at Stand & Deliver, with that build carrying things to perhaps Spring Breakin’ in May. Really good promo from Dragunov to call out JD McDonagh, and speaking of something that needs a stipulation, it’s this one. These two showed us what they could do in NXT UK, why not give us more of that here?

Really good stuff from this Chase U story. Thea meditating with Tyler Bate was a nice touch, but after Duke exploded on Chase after the loss, I guess the Six Man Tag where Tyler helps Chase U against The Schism is out of the question. This story has had some really good twists and turns, but it’d be a shame if this was the end of Chase U because of how fun those promos segments have been. Maybe Chase U’s next chapter will have Tyler Bate as an official member of the team, which seems like a shame for Tyler but at least he’ll be doing something. I still say Tyler should’ve been champion coming out of Worlds Collide, but whatever. Maybe this will help get him back up towards a title for the summer.

And what a great Grayson Waller Effect, which is something I never expected to say. But Waller and HBK were great, Waller is a great talker and wrestler but I don’t think enough to be “The Guy.” Good digs about HBK taking over for HHH because of HHH’s health, but also I like that HBK called in Gargano for his proxy. That just makes sense since Waller attacked Gargano as he was on his way out, and though Gargano came back to WWE right to Raw, he really does need to settle things with Waller here in NXT. Fans love Gargano, most fans love to hate Waller, this is going to be great stuff that could steal the show at Stand & Deliver, which I think is actually HBK’s ultimate plan for Waller.

My Score: 8.9/10

It’s the Revolution Zero Hour!

Join Renee Paquette and RJ City in discussing, analyzing and predicting the night that features Sting’s last match ever!

 

Tony Schiavone and David Crockett are here!

These two reunite in the Greensboro Arena, where so much of Sting’s iconic career took place. David says as we know, tonight is about family. The Young Bucks made this extremely personal when they attacked Sting’s sons, so what was to be a celebration of a great career has become a grudge match. There is purpose and revenge, Sting isn’t leaving until he finishes the job. Great years were spent here, the centerpiece of Jim Crockett Promotions and the NWA. Here on hallowed ground, from 1988 to 2024, Sting finishes his career here, live on PPV! Dial in, because there’ll be nothing else like it!

 

Zero Hour – 12 Man Tag: The Bang Bang Scissor Gang VS Willie Mack, Private Party & Team Triple J w/ Sonjay Dutt & Karen Jarrett!

Jay White & Colten Gunn made it work with Daddy Ass, The Acclaimed made it work with Austin, and we have seen the entire six pack in action and win once before. Will this be another hit for the super group? Or will the mash-up of The Mack, Marq Quen, Isiah Kassidy, Jay Lethal, Jeff Jarrett & Satnam Singh destroy the dysfunctional half dozen?

“Platinum on the mic, I’ma ’bout to cook this! All these jobbers in the ring, who the hecc booked this? A Black guy, an Indian and Jeff in the mix, I just wanna know: whose fetish is this? You make my job easy when I’m rappin’, you’re like an offensive joke waitin’ to happen! The Bang Scissor- Sh*t!” Caster lost his flow three times in a row! Is #TriplePartyJay winning gonna open the show? Bowens still shouts, “GRRREENSBOROOO~! The Bang Bang Scissor Gang has arrived! Scissor me, Daddy Ass!” And he does~!

Buddy Matthews VS ???

The House of Black’s Aussie Juggernaut opens Collision on Revolution Eve, but wait! Mark Briscoe drags Buddy out of the ring! The fans fire up but no, Mark is NOT Buddy’s opponent! This is revenge for the beatdown just last week! Mark SMACKS Buddy off the steel steps while the ref reprimands, but then Mark brings out a table! The fans fire up as Mark props that up against railing. But Buddy BOOTS Mark! And he SMACKS Mark off the steps! Buddy grabs a chair, but Mark kicks him low! Mark takes that chair and JAMS Buddy up with it! And SMACKS Buddy on the back! Mark tosses the chair into the ring, but Buddy knees low!

Mark shoves Buddy to where the flamethrower is!! But then security swarms him before he can get the switch! The House regroups and retreats before facing disaster! Is Mark going to burn the House down with his own two hands?

 

Swerve Strickland speaks.

AEW shares footage from after Dynamite, The Realest having recovered from Hangman Page getting the jump on him. “I really don’t know what I should be pissed off at more: The fact that Hangman went out there and just ripped my $2,000 Jeff Hamilton exclusive jacket; or the fact that maybe I was just being a little too nice. I don’t really let my guard down too often, and in this business, you pay for it eventually. And it feels like I just paid for it. Swerve hung the Hangman and it was only right for the Hangman to swerve Swerve. You got me. I’ll never take my eyes off you ever again. This Sunday, you can’t get behind me. You gotta look me dead in my eye. I’m not gonna forget this.

“And as far as Joe, hm… I’m taking that championship. Whether I humiliate you on social media or in a promo, it doesn’t matter. I’m doing whatever it takes to walk out the historical figure of AEW, the first African American AEW World Champion. Whose house? Swerve’s House.” Angry yet focused, is Swerve truly the most dangerous man in that Triple Threat?

 

All-Star Scramble Qualifier Triple Threat: Penta El Zero Miedo VS Dante Martin VS Bryan Keith!

So far, it is Chris Jericho, Lance Archer, Will Hobbs, Wardlow, Hook, Brian Cage, and after last night’s Rampage, CMLL’s Magnus. One spot remains, will the eighth man have #CeroMiedo, represent Top Flight, or be looking for his next bounty?

The bell rings and the fans rally as the three stare down. The fans cheer for “CERO! MIEDO!” and Penta reminds Dante that they still owe each other. So listen! “CERO! MIEDO!” Penta pie faces Dante but then Keith shoves Penta. Penta takes the glove off! The fans fire up as Penta calls to Abrahantes, but then Keith HEADBUTTS Penta down! Then Dante SUPERKICKS Keith down! Penta gets up to SUPERKICK Dante! Penta KICKS Dante in a leg, KICKS Keith in a leg, “CERO! MIEDO!” Penta runs but into DOUBLE SUPERKICKS! Penta falls out, Keith DECKS Dante! Things get moving, Dante drops, hurdles then rolls back to headscissor! Then he dodges Keith to JUMP KNEE!

Keith falls out but Penta’s up top! Penta CROSSBODIES Dante, rolls off and keeps moving, SLINGBLADE! SLINGBLADE! Penta aims and KICKS Dante in the leg! Dante hobbles, Penta whips him to a corner but Dante reverses. Dante runs up, into a SUPERKICK! Penta then pops Dante up in the corner, SUPERKICK and BACKSTABBER!

A huge win for Angelo Dorado, he is the final man in the All-Star Scramble! Will Dante use his speed and agility to snatch that golden ticket to the top?

 

AEW shares more footage from after Dynamite.

AEW Media caught up with Hangman Page backstage, and asked him about the attack on Swerve. Is he really not hurt? Hangman asks back, “Do I look hurt, you dumbass?! I’m fine, I’m in the match, and I’m sorry I took advantage of the trust of the people tonight, but I had to do it! I had to do it! I would rather DIE than have Swerve win the world championship! I would rather DIE than not win it myself! I did what I had to do! He’s hurt! He’s hurt, he’s weakened, he can’t have it, he won’t have it! I won’t let him! I had to do it! I had to do it!” The Cowboy seems to think he had to do what he did, but what will he do in order to finish things at Revolution?

 

BREAKING NEWS for Revolution!

After going back and forth with Julia Hart & Skye Blue, Kris Statlander & Willow Nightingale team together against The House of Black for a big Zero Hour tag match! Will the TBS Champion and her sidekick bring down the dynamic duo? Or will the Galaxy’s Greatest Babes with the Power prove The House does NOT always win? Plus, while The Bang Bang Scissor Gang tests out the combination of The Acclaimed & Austin Gunn tonight, they’re ALL going to team together against a rather eclectic six pack. Willie Mack, Private Party, Jay Lethal, Jeff Jarrett & Satnam Singh are teaming together, but will they be brought down by the AEW Trios & ROH World Six Man Tag Champions?

 

Mariah May VS Angelica Risk!

“Timeless” Toni Storm’s superfan and self-proclaimed protege is back in action, looking to keep her win streak going. Will this be the night she impresses the AEW Women’s World Champion? Or is she simply taking a risk?

The bell rings and Risk circles with Mariah. They tie up but Mariah kicks low! Mariah CLUBS Risk, puts her in a corner, and then puts some major stank on the DOUBLE CHOP! The fans cheer, Mariah stalks Risk to ropes and puts her through to pull her against the ropes! The ref reprimands and counts, Mariah lets go at 4. Risk sputters and coughs, but Mariah pulls her against ropes again! Mariah runs side to side to DROPKICK Risk in the back! Mariah winks to the camera and then brings Risk up. Mariah whips Risk to ropes, scoops her, and spins and spins and spins for the SIDEWALK SLAM!

Risk writhes while Mariah soaks up the cheers. Mariah blows a kiss to Nigel McGuiness and he is rather dramatic about it. Mariah smiles and goes back to Risk. Risk throws hands but Mariah CLUBS her down. Mariah puts Risk in a corner, then digs her boot in! The ref counts again, Mariah lets off at 4 and says she just deserves a slap on the wrist. Mariah then drags Risk up, snapmares her and runs, to basement dropkick! Risk flounders and Mariah shrugs. Mariah kicks Risk around, drags her up, but Risk ROCKS her with haymaker after haymaker! Mariah shoves Risk then DECKS her! Mariah runs up to KNEE Risk down!!

Mariah storms around, drags Risk back up and fireman’s carries, to hit MAYDAY! Cover, Mariah wins!

Winner: Mariah May, by pinfall

Nigel finishes marking out, and here comes Toni Storm! Storm goes right down to the ring and Mariah fangirls over her role model! Storm gets in the ring, but bypasses Mariah to get a mic. “Deonna Purrazzo, I must speak with you right now. Please come to the ring right this instance.” The Virtuosa does make her way out here, and storms right into the ring. Storm stays back and says, “Deonna, please. Hasn’t this gone far enough? Look at us! Look at what we’ve become. Is this really what we trained for? Is this really what we starved for, Deonna? Our friendship, destroyed. A new ta-too, a broken leg, a broken arm. All just to win a match. Is it worth it?” The fans sure think so! Storm isn’t so sure.

So Deonna, Storm says from the bottom of her heart, she loves Deonna. Her ability, her determination, and… that there is only room for one. And as long as Storm shall live and breath, it will never be Deonna! Deonna tells Toni, “I love you, too. I love… that you have your head so far up your own ass, you’re going to lose the one thing that started this entire charade to begin with! And I love, Toni, I love that you have forgotten the most important detail about me. I am the best friend and the worst enemy. I hope you have a bidet. It’s going to be really hard to wipe your ass when I break both of your arms!”

The fans fire up and Storm is unsure how to respond to that. But very well. Goodbye, old friend. Toni brings out lipstick to freshen up her make-up, and she kisses Deonna on the cheek to leave a mark. But Deonna fires forearms! They brawl, Deonna TACKLES Storm, and Mariah runs in to stop it! Mariah TOSSES Deonna away and helps Storm get away. But then Deonna runs up to BOOT Mariah! Deonna reels Mariah in and slashes her throat. This is for Storm! STORM ZERO on Mariah!! Deonna shows Storm that anything Storm can do, Deonna can do better. Will that also apply to being the AEW Women’s World Champion?

 

Six Man Tag: The Acclaimed & Austin Gunn VS The Dark Order!

While it was a bit rocky, Jay White & Colten Gunn made it work with Daddy Ass, so now the other half of the Bang Bang Scissor Gang gives it a go! And that means Platinum Max has a rap! “Bang Bang Scissor Gang, doing our thang!” But then Jay White gets too buddy buddy and it throws Caster off! Fans boo but White apologizes. Caster’s lost his window now, can he get back on the beat in the match? Bowens still says, “Huntsville, Alabamaaa~! The Bang Bang Scissor Gang has arrived! Scissor Me, Daddy Ass!” And he does~!

The trios sort out and Austin starts against Alex Reynolds. The two circle, feel things out, and tie up. They go around, Reynolds headlocks, but Austin wrenches out to headlock back. Reynolds powers up and out, drops down then swings, but Austin ducks ‘n’ dodges and trips Reynolds up! The fans cheer, Austin JABS, JABS, JABS and then two steps for the HAYMAKER! Tag to Caster, he and Austin double whip Reynolds to ropes. They DOUBLE HIP TOSS and we get a shot of “Juiceboard.” Caster brings Reynolds up but Reynolds RAMS him into Dark Order territory! Uno tags in, the Dark Order mugs Caster, but Caster fires off haymakers on them all!

Caster ROCKS Uno again and again, then dodges to DROPKICK! Reynolds runs up, but into a back drop! Silver runs in but into an atomic drop and RUSSIAN LEG SWEEP! Caster swaggers, but Uno stands up. Caster scoops to SLAM Uno, then tags in Bowens. Bowens tags Austin and Bowens goes up. Time to SCISSOR ME TIMBERS! The remix works just like the classic! Fans fire up as it’s guns and scissors up! But the flow is off again, and Silver BOOTS Bowens! Silver ELBOWS Austin, dodges Caster, and feed to Reynolds, POP-UP UPPERCUT! Uno runs to BOOT Austin then DDT him! Cover, TWO!

Uno DECKS Austin, mocks him as he crawls for the BBSG corner, then STOMPS the hand! Austin writhes, Uno tags Reynolds, and they get Austin up in an open corner. Uno CHOPS, Reynolds clotheslines, and then Reynolds snapmares to IMPLODER SPLASH! Cover, TWO! Austin hurries to ropes and the fans rally up. Reynolds storms up on Austin, taunts Billy & Colten, then tags in Silver. They double whip Austin to ropes to double drop toehold and DOUBLE BASEMENT DROPKICK! Cover, TWO!

Austin sputters, Silver KICKS him again! Then Silver sucker punches Bowens down! The ref reprimands while Collision goes to break.

Collision returns and Uno is again taunting Austin to tag his team. Uno then drags Austin up, whips him away, but Austin uses that to BLAST Silver & Reynolds! Uno blocks Austin’s kick but the ref refuses to play along! Uno is upset, but Austin gets a leg and he gives it to the ref! Now the ref is okay with it, and Austin hits the NECKBREAKER!

ROLLING ELBOW for Uno! ROLLING ELBOW for Reynolds! Then Rock Paper Scissors SUPERKICK for Silver!

The fans fire up as Reynolds gets the same, plus the FAMOUSER BULLDOG! Bowens shouts, “EVERYONE! LOVES! THE ACCLAIMED! BANG BANG!” But then Uno drags Bowens out and POSTS him! Caster CLOBBERS Uno, fires off on him, but Silver DIVES! Down goes Caster, but Billy tells the Meat Man to watch himself. Silver just flexes and says, “I’m freakin’ jacked, baby!” Silver shoves Billy and the ref has to stop the rest of BBSG from going after Silver! But this lets Uno & Reynolds both get Caster up, and Silver runs in! PENDULUM BOMB!! Reynolds covers, AUSTIN BREAKS IT! What a save!

Uno CLUBS Austin, runs up, but Austin gets around the boot! Dragon sleeper, SWINGING NECKBREAKER! Austin says “SUCK IT!” but Silver tags in and CLOBBERS him! BOOT WASH to GERMAN SUPLEX! Silver & Reynolds have Bowens isolated! Silver clotheslines, GAMANGIRIS, and whips, but Bowens reverses! The ROLLING ELBOW from Reynolds hits Silver! Bowens tags Caster, then clinch for THE ARRIVAL! Caster is up top, MIC DROP!! Cover, BBSG wins!

Winners: The Acclaimed & Austin Gunn, by pinfall

Jay White slides in to give the boys their belts, and he scissor fingers with Caster. The gang makes it work again, and look ready for Revolution’s 12 Man Tag! Will the super group be unstoppable despite the dysfunction?

 

Backstage interview with Kris Statlander, Willow Nightingale & Stokely Hathaway.

Speaking of dysfunction, Lexi Nair is with the trio of Galaxy’s Greatest Babes with the Power and their manager, nothing the loss to Skye Blue just on Dynamite. However, they do have the tag team match against Skye & Julia tomorrow night, are they having a different tactic going into it? Stokely wants to “address the elephant in the room” and go with the word of the day, “accountability.” He was watching a lot of The View, he is a Whoopi stan, so hey, he just wants to say sorry. Willow says put apologies aside. No more talking, they need to get on the same page. Tomorrow is not about friendship, it is about Revolution!

Willow warns Julia & Skye, “Stat and I are gonna kick your ass!” The Babe with the Power has flipped the switch from happy to angry, is tomorrow night’s Zero Hour going to be the last time the House of Black gets the better of her and Statlander?

 

Tony Schiavone is in the ring.

He brings in one of the men who gets a chance at an AEW World Championship opportunity in the All-Star Scramble. It is the one and only… WARDLOW! The Undisputed Kingdom’s War Dog makes his way to the ring and he just takes the mic away. “You know the deal.” Schiavone bows out and Wardlow says, “Looks like I finally got somebody’s attention around here, huh?” Fans sound a bit torn but Wardlow says, “Two years ago, I won the Face o the Revolution Ladder match. One year ago, I choked out your King. This year, FINALLY, I get my shot at the world heavyweight championship, after I beat all the other ‘all-stars’ in the match.”

Fans boo but Wardlow says the real question is: Who’s it gonna be? Wardlow VS Hangman? He’ll slap the Cowboy’s mustache into the third row and send him back into depression! Wardlow VS Swerve? The fans like him, right? It’s Swerve’s House, right? Wardlow will kick the door of that house down and whoop Swerve’s ass from the basement to the attic, because nobody else gets to eat before him! So swerve back into your lane and dance your ass to the back of the line! Swerve’s House only exists in Wardlow’s World! Maybe it’ll be Wardlow VS Joe. The fans chant for “JOE! JOE! JOE!” but Wardlow says he is so sick hearing these “dumb hillbillies” chant for Joe!

Wardlow says that he hopes it IS Joe! Because everybody knows that Joe is in Wardlow’s spot! And this time, Wardlow will finish the job. Not only is Wardlow going to take his spot, take his title, but beat Joe so badly that Joe will be forced to put on a headset and sit at the announce desk where he belongs! YEAH, Wardlow is him! He’s been him, will always be him! And tomorrow night, Wardlow reminds everyone that he is STILL the Face of the Revolution! Wardlow is the Uncrowned King of AEW, because this is no longer wrestling! This is WAR! But wait! Here comes Chris Jericho!

Wardlow huffs and puffs as The Ocho makes his way out here, mic in his own hand. Jericho asks a question: What exactly is Wardlow going on about? Swerve, Hangman and Joe? They are all great competitors, but Wardlow’s not fighting those three! He’s in the Scramble, and maybe you don’t know Jericho, but he’s not an all-star, he is one of the greatest to ever do this! And if Wardlow thinks he’ll just pass over him and six other men, six of the greatest performers worldwide, here’s some information for you. Jericho is the Ocho because he is an eight-time world champion, and the very-first AEW World Champion!

The fans cheer and Wardlow mockingly claps. Jericho says that makes the score 8-0 in Jericho’s favor cuz Wardlow ain’t won sh*t. The fans cheer that! So before Wardlow disrespects Jericho and says he’ll go right to the top, Jericho will remind Wardlow that it’s been four YEARS since Jericho lost that title to Jon Moxley in one of the greatest matches in AEW history, and Jericho hasn’t had even a chance to get it back, or even sniff it. So tomorrow at Revolution, this isn’t just another match for Jericho, this is a chance for him to get back to where he thinks he can be, to where he knows he can be, and that is the AEW World Championship!

Jericho knows he’s good enough. The question is: Is Wardlow? Wardlow chuckles but Jericho says Wardlow’s complaining about being overlooked and pushed aside. Thousands of people used to chant Wardlow’s name, he had a rocket that was put on upside-down, blah blah blah. Does Wardlow think that maybe it wasn’t any of those things? Maybe the people stopped chanting because Wardlow just wasn’t good enough. Maybe it’s that aren’t as good as you think, “Mike.” Wardlow scowls at Jericho using his first name. But y’know what, Chris? You’re right. Because Wardlow was this close to the top of the mountain that he could smell it.

But after Double or Nothing, Wardlow shows up for work, just to take a step backwards. And then the next week, another step, and another, and another. So yeah, that pisses Wardlow off to the point that he let it eat him away, to where he was taking work home and he let it ruin his personal life. Wardlow lost his best friend to this, and he lost himself! But after sitting at home for three MONTHS with no phone call, Wardlow slowly started to remember who he was. And he did what he have done so many times in his life: pick himself up off the floor, put himself back together, and then came back here to remind ALL OF YOU just who the hell he is!

BECAUSE HE IS WARDLOW! The biggest and baddest SOB to ever step into the ring! And he doesn’t give a DAMN what your name is, how many titles you’ve won, and just like he said last week, Wardlow is done eating the scraps! The fans fire up as Wardlow says if Jericho doesn’t think Wardlow’s good enough, well, Wardlow’s right here. Feel free to come down and show Wardlow so Wardlow can remind Jericho! Oh, if Wardlow wants Jericho to prove something, fine. Jericho will take that rocket off his back and shove it up his ass! Right, Huntsville? But wait! HOBBS CLOBBERS JERICHO! Wardlow chuckles, but Hobbs says watch this!

Hobbs rains down fists on Jericho, then tells Wardlow that HOBBS is the biggest and baddest! Fans boo but Hobbs says they’ve got one more day before this happens! The fans chant for “MEAT! MEAT! MEAT!” The Scramble is beefy, will it be one of the behemoths that comes out on top?

 

Backstage interview with Serena Deeb.

Lexi is now with the Professor of Pro-Wrestling, and says she is arguably the most experienced woman in the AEW locker room today. And currently, she is undefeated. But we’ve also seen a new side of her. Tell us just what’s going on. Deeb says not only is she undefeated in her return, she is undeniable and unstoppable. She’s putting on clinic after clinic every single week. And to be honest, no one’s really even challenged her in the ring yet. And that makes sense, because she is the Professor, the Woman of 1000 Holds. To be honest, she doesn’t think the competition she’s faced so far knows the difference between a wristlock and wristwatch.

So if you’re listening, if you’re watching, and if you consider yourself one of the best, step into Deeb’s Dojo and test yourself against the most elite wrestler. She’ll be here each and every week showing the world that nobody does what she does in that ring, and why Deeb is The Final Boss. A huge challenge has been issued, will anyone step up?

 

Private Party VS Christopher Daniels & Matt Sydal!

Marq Quen & Isiah Kassidy want to finally be at the top of the AEW Tag Division, but they’ve got to keep up the pace if they wanna reach it. Will they do just that against the Fallen Angel & Zen Assassin? Or will the former ROH World Tag Team Champions show them what it takes to really get there?

The teams sort out and Sydal starts against Zay. They circle and talk trash, Zay blaming Sydal for the loss in the Trios Triple Threat while Sydal says he was carrying Private Party. The two shove, then Sydal arm-drags! Sydal taunts Zay, dodges him, then tilt-o-whirls to RANA! Sydal then ducks ‘n’ dodges to RANA again! The fans fire up and Sydal runs up again. Tilt-o-whirl ARM-DRAG! Quen runs in, but into an arm-drag! Then Daniels gets in to arm-drag Quen! Zay arm-drags Daniels, but Sydla arm-drags Zay! The teams regroup and the fans cheer but the ref wants everyone to calm down. Quen and Daniels back off, but then Sydal and Zay tag them in.

The fans cheer as Daniels and Quen circle now. Quen is annoyed by how many are cheering for Daniels and not him. Quen and Daniels then tie up, Quen headlocks, but Daniels throws body shots. Daniels powers out, Quen rolls over the dropdown and starts up the “SHOTS! SHOTS! SHOTS!” chant. Daniels smirks, runs up, but Quen trips him up! Quen speeds up, steps over Daniels, “SHOTS! SHOTS! SHOTS!” Daniels is annoyed but he runs up. Quen bypasses but Daniels steps on him now! Daniels says “SHOTS! SHOTS! SHOTS!” but then wags his fingers. He does the Curry Man Dance! The fans cheer but Quen runs up, into a hip toss!

Tag to Sydal, he and Daniels mug Quen, then Sydal whips Quen into a corner for the GAMANGIRI! Daniels feeds Quen to the ROUNDHOUSE then adds an STO! Sydal gets the fans fired up for the STANDING MARIPOSA! Cover, TWO! Sydal taunts Quen, brings him up, and KCIKS a leg! Tag to Daniels, he and Sydal double wrench Quen to bring him to his knees. Sydal KICKS and Daniels BLINDSIDE LARIATS! Cover, TWO! Quen stays in this and Collision goes picture in picture.

Daniels is annoyed but he brings Quen up to headlock. Quen powers out, drops down, and Zay gets a cheap shot in! Zay gets away from Daniels, and Quen DROPKICKS Daniels down! Daniels ends up on the apron, Zay tags in so he can jump in, springboard and STUNNER Daniels off the apron! Daniels staggers around, Zay distracts the ref so Quen can CLOBBER Daniels! Zay goes out to shine Daniels’ head, then put him in the ring. Zay stomps Daniels, then puts him in a corner. Zay stomps a mudhole now, then tags Quen. Private Party says “STOMPS! STOMPS! STOMPS!” but they stop as the ref counts.

Quen kick steps and rolls back to taunt Sydal, then goes back for Daniels. Quen UPPERCUTS Daniels, puts him in the corner, and digs his boot in. The ref counts, Quen lets off at 4, but Zay CHOKES Daniels behind the ref’s back! Sydal protests but that only lets Zay do more! Zay lets off in time, then tags in. Private Party whip Daniels to atomic drop and ENZIGIRI! Quen then sweeps Daniels’ legs and Zay adds the HIP DROP, into a CAMEL CLUTCH! Quen runs to LEAP FROG STOMP, and then Zay BLASTS Sydal off the apron! Sydal is furious and the ref reprimands Private Party, but they just soak up the heat.

Zay brings Daniels up but Daniels throws body shots and forearms! Daniels runs but Zay LARIATS him down! Zay stays between Daniels and his corner, then he brings Daniels up to snapmare and chinlock. Zay grinds Daniels down, Daniels endures, and Collision returns to single picture. Sydal coaches Daniels as he fights up, and Daniels throws body shots. Zay CLUBS away on Daniels, shines the bald head, then kicks low. But Daniels stops the Twist of Fate! Zay comes back, into a FLATLINER! Both men are down and the fans rally up! Zay and Daniels crawl, hot tags to Quen and Sydal! Sydal DROPKICKS Quen!

Sydal JUMP KICKS Quen, ROUNDHOUSES him, then JUMP KICKS Zay! Sydal KICKS Quen, KICKS Zay, repeat! The fans fire up, Sydal dodges Private Party and DOUBLE RANAS! Then QUESTION MARK KICK for Zay! Quen swings but Sydal gets under to wrench and lift, AIR RAID CRASH! Cover, TWO! Quen is still in this and Sydal grows frustrated. Sydal basement dropkicks Zay into buckles, then he runs corner to corner at Quen. Quen dodges and the splash hits buckles! Zay runs in, but Sydal BOOTS! Sydal runs up but Kassidy ducks, Quen BOOTS Sydal! Quen reels Sydal in, Kassidy goes up, but SWANTON NECKBREAKER COMBO! Cover, TWO!!

Tag to Daniels and he JABS away on Private Party. Quen kicks low, Private Party double whip, but Daniels ducks the lariats! Sydal & Daniels LARIAT Private Party! The fans fire up as Sydal goes up and Daniels brings Quen around. Daniels underhooks but Kassidy saves Quen! Quen back drops free! Sydal leaps over Quen to METEORA Zay! Daniels is back up, but Quen dodges to Michael Jackson “HEE HEE~,” only for Daniels to dodge the Pele!

Daniels reels Quen in for ANGEL’S WINGS!! Cover, but wait, who’s storming down the ramp? It’s TRIPLE J! Jeff Jarrett and Sonjay Dutt distract the ref, while Jay Lethal gets in to give Daniels a LETHAL COMBINATION! Lethal drags Quen onto Daneils and now the ref sees the cover, Private Party wins!

Winners: Private Party, by pinfall

Quen & Zay get an assist from their future tag partners in Revolution’s 12 Man Tag! Sonjay does his best to dance to the music, but will this dirty half dozen find a way to beat all the Six Man Champions tomorrow night?

Serena Deeb may be undefeated in her return, but so has La Mera Mera! The former AEW Women’s World Champion wants to get some gold again, will she make it 5-0 in 2024? Or will this Collision be Golden?

Because it’s my time. And remember, get a little closer, because you’re gonna get burned!” Is nothing and no one going to stop Rosa from taking a title in 2024?

 

8 Man Tag: Orange Cassidy, Trent Beretta, Hook & Daniel Garcia VS Christian Cage, Killswitch/Luchasaurus, Brian Cage & Roderick Strong!

There are many titles on the line this Sunday, and the AEW International Championship and AEW TNT Championships are no exception! Freshly Squeezed will be facing the Savior of the Backbreaker while Captain Charisma will be facing the Dragonslayer, and let’s not forget the Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil and Machine are both in the All-Star Scramble! Which quirky quartet captures some critical momentum just 24 hours away from Revolution?

The teams sort out and while Garcia is glaring at Christian, Christian of course backs down. Instead, we get Brian Cage and #JustTrent. They tie up, Cage shoves Trent to a corner but Trent dodges the clothesline. Trent CHOPS, Cage runs up but Trent dodges again to headlock. Cage powers up and powers out, then he runs Trent over! “Who betta than Cage, huh!?” Trent scrambles to his feet, talks it over with his corner, and tags in Garcia! Garcia dares Christian to step up but it’s Roddy who tags in instead. Roddy and Garcia circle but Roddy SPITS at Cassidy! Cassidy leaves that alone so Roddy and Garcia tie up.

Roddy and Garcia go around, Roddy wrenches through to wristlock. Garcia rolls, rolls and rolls to get free! The fans cheer as Garcia wags his finger. Garcia and Roddy feel things out, tie up, and Roddy wrenches to wrangle Garcia with another wristlock. Garcia fights up, but Roddy wrenches again. Garcia grabs at Roddy for a clinch, pushes him around and turns him, then slips to a headlock! The fans cheer this technical exchange as Roddy pries at the hold. Roddy pops out the back to headlock and hit the takeover. Garcia headscissors, Roddy moves around, and Roddy turns Garcia over. Roddy then ties the legs up, and he smacks Garcia on the head.

The fans boo but Roddy stares Garcia down. Garcia stands, they tie up, and go around. Garcia puts Roddy in a corner, the ref counts, and Garcia lets off slowly, to CHOP! And CHOP! And CHOP again! Garcia whips corner to corner, runs up and clotheslines, then brings Roddy in! Garcia lifts but Cage makes the save! So Garcia fires shots on Cage!

The ref wants someone to get in, so Killswitchasaurus and Captain Charisma step up! Cage also joins in, but then Cassidy & Trent back Hook and Garcia up! The fans fire up for the stare down, Collision goes picture in picture.

The ref has everyone cool off, but Christian still swipes at Garcia. Garcia kicks at Christian but this boils back down to just Garcia and Roddy. Roddy tags Cage back in, he circles with Garcia. They tie up, Cage RAMS Garcia into a corner! And again, and again! Cage then CHOPS Garcia while Prince Nana talks trash. Cage soaks up the heat, runs corner to corner, but Garcia BOOTS him! Cage tries again but Garcia dropkicks the legs out! Cage hits buckles, Garcia does his dance! Then Garcia BOOT WASHES Cage halfway out the ring! Garcia drags Cage up, UPPERCUTS him, then whips Cage to ropes. Cage reverses and Christian gets a cheap shot in!

My Thoughts:

A great Collision here, especially as the go-home to Revolution. I like the move of Mark attacking Buddy to “cancel a match,” and then Mark became a one man wrecking crew to really escalate things between him and The House of Black. I’m thinking if Mark doesn’t get allies to help him, then he should have some sort of three match series with The House. Mark will face each member 1v1, from Buddy to Brody to Malakai, and who knows how that goes, but Mark beating Malakai would be a good blowoff that also gets Mark towards a title story for the Summer. And really good promos from Swerve and Hangman to top off things for Revolution, with Hangman having a rather manic and desperate take on being a Face turning Heel. That’s a much more realistic turn in his character rather than the usual “I’m just a bad guy now” kind of stuff.

Really good segment from Wardlow, Jericho and Hobbs. While it’s not really good that Tony Khan books his people into these positions where their characters are always going, “It’s about time I get to do something in this company!” at least Wardlow is making the most of it with how passionate that promo was. And then while Jericho maybe goes one line too long for his part, at least Hobbs just beats Jericho down to make his point. Go-home math probably doesn’t work here, Jericho isn’t suddenly going to win out just because of this. I am still going with Wardlow as first pick, Hobbs as second.

Speaking of the Scramble, great Triple Threat, and a great win for Dante. I did not expect that, I really thought it was gonna be Penta, but Dante is another great high-flyer to get in on a rather bulky field. Great win for Mariah May, though I don’t think her matches have really gone long enough to showcase everything she can do. But it was also a great segue for Storm and Deonna to have their final face to face. Deonna stands tall because she puts the hurt on Mariah, that makes me think Storm retains and we slowly turn the corner to where Mariah gets fed up with Storm not caring about her at all, despite taking all these hits for her.

Great win for Thunder Rosa, and her little mini-promo after was really good, too. Again, feels like a case parallel to Wardlow about being a little annoyed at having to wait for stuff. Rosa did show up during the hype towards Collision’s debut, but then was not on a single Collision for months. Good promo from Deeb, too, and I want to say her saying “Final Boss” is some plug for Mercedes Mone to show up and be “THE Boss,” what with Big Business in Boston happening in a couple weeks. And apparently we’re not getting a TBS Championship or even a contender’s match. However, perhaps Willow & Kris VS Julia & Skye establishes someone as a #1 contender through the rankings to build towards the next PPV.

Really good stuff out of Bang Bang Scissor Gang, including their use of dysfunction within the group. They still win out because sadly, The Dark Order’s resurgence was only on ROH and then they got brought back to AEW just to eat losses. But with this being the second week in a row Caster can’t get a rap out, something is about to fall apart between the BBSG, whether we want it to or not. Meanwhile, Triple J helps Private Party win, maybe Jeff Jarrett wants to try and make a super group of his own. And apparently Lethal is onboard, because last we saw they were still arguing, so maybe Revolution swaps a super group we want for one that doesn’t make sense.

And great 8 Man Tag main event with a lot of stories plugged at once. The Heels winning made sense, and Trent taking the loss while Luchasaurus gets the win also makes sense. The math isn’t really affected by that necessarily, because then the chaotic brawl happens and we get varied results. Cassidy was beat down, so I’d think he beats Roddy. Meanwhile, Garcia threw Christian down before cameras cut away, so I guess that means Christian finds a way to win. Which makes sense, we just saw how Christian has three minions and Garcia only has Daddy Magic watching his back. That is, if Edge doesn’t show up to help Garcia.

Adam Copeland costing Christian the title rather than taking it himself would be good stuff for their feud, which doesn’t even really need the title. Edge VS Christian, The Final Chapter, just needs Luchasaurus to man up and turn on Christian and weaken the Patriarchy.

My Score: 8.8/10
