Pretty Deadly is backstage again.

Kit can’t believe what we just witnessed. Elton says that was barbaric. Speaking of, next is the Unsanctioned Match! But first, as your gracious hosts, they’re waiting outside Carmelo Hayes’ locker room. Surely they’ll get a scoop on Melo. Well, Melo wasn’t really nice to them, either. But they have to remember who they are! They’re Pretty Deadly, dammit! They’re the hosts of Stand & Deliver! They’re multiple time tag team champions! Elton tries to come up with a knock that means supportive but inquisitive, only for Trick Williams to open the door and asks why they’re flapping their “double breasted lips.”

Trick says they’re game planning. But if they want the scoop, here it is. Hollywood ain’t ready, LA ain’t ready, Bron Breakker ain’t ready for what’s gonna happen in this match. They’re gonna do something new tonight. They’re gonna wrestle with alligators, tussle with whales, and the way Pretty Deadly’s dressed, they should go to jail. But today, the world learns why Carmelo Hayes is HIM. Laters. There’s the scoop! Back to the ring for what could still be the most brutal match of the night!

 

Unsanctioned Match: Johnny Gargano VS Grayson Waller!

Just as the 21st Century Success Story started pushing things a little too far with HBK, a certain someone returned to get back at him for the chairshot that went viral. Hollywood, heeeere’s JOHNNY WRESTLING! And with no rules, no restrictions, no consequences for what happens here tonight, will Gargano make Grayson regret everything he’s ever said and done in NXT? Or will he suffer the Grayson Waller Effect?

Waller livestreams on his Instagram as he takes over production to cue up his stuff. Waller goes to the ring, and he even gets Candice LeRae and baby Quill on camera.

Gargano writhes, Waller stands on his head to JAM and SMACK and SMACK him again! Waller lets off, out of breath, but he still stands Gargano up. “I told you, these 16 months, I run NXT! You are nothing! You’re not on my level!” Gargano LOW BLOWS Waller back! Turnabout is fair play, and here comes the CHAIRSHOTS! Gargano gives those all back with interest!

Gargano gets more chairs, he SMACKS Waller more, then opens a chair to put it around Waller’s head! Gargano gets the other, HOMERUN!! And then the GargaNO ESCAPE!!! Waller endures, but he taps! GARGANO WINS!

Winner: Johnny Gargano, by submission

Candice gets in the ring to celebrate with Gargano and cool him down. The Heart of NXT just broke the biggest mouth of NXT, and now he can finally move on. And best of all, #InDex returns to the stage to celebrate! This is The Way! As for Waller, will all of this finally humble him? Or does nothing stop the Grayson Waller Effect?

 

Tony and Stacks regroup backstage.

They have no idea where Joe Coffey came from! They gave it everything they got, and for what? Stacks apologizes for letting The Don down, but Tony says Stacks didn’t let anyone down. #YESBOY, Pretty Deadly check in. They want a little scoop. If they may, the hopes and dreams of becoming champions came crashing down, sot hey must feel terrible. Tell them about it? Tony won’t make excuses. But whatever, where they come from, you don’t quit. Very, very motivating from The Don himself. Stacks says he still feels he let everyone down. Tony says to get that out of his head, they’re a TEAM!

Pretty Deadly says that’s a nice sentiment. But it seems the only team that’s ever beaten Gallus is them. Tony gets mad now. They’re gonna come in and make stupid comments? The hosts argue with Tony & Stacks, they start shoving, and refs rush in to stop this! The Don & Underboss are still raring for a fight, will they look to settle this on Tuesday?

On May 28th, in Lowell, Massachusetts, it will be NXT BATTLEGROUND! Who will be bringing the gold to New England? Well, the main event is next!

 

NXT Championship: Bron Breakker VS Carmelo Hayes w/ Trick Williams!

It all comes down to this. As black ‘n’ gold gave way to 2.0, these two men were standouts among their class. They both won as part of WarGames to show that the new school had arrived, and this clash of alpha males is not only historic, it was inevitable. Will Bron break Melo’s hopes and dreams by holding onto the title? Or will there be no denying that Melo is him?

Melo has a new shirt for the occasion, with the words “Melo Don’t Miss,” and a purple target on Bron’s face. Trick lists Melo’s accolades: June 21st, 2020, he put the world on notice. It was banger after banger, from Strong to Grimes to D’Angelo to Ricochet to Vinci to Axiom to Bate to Crews. Everyone stand up, to Stand & Deliver! Melo is in purple ‘n’ gold because this is LA! As for Bron, he’s got the pack at his back, because he’s got that dog in him. The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see who IS N! X! T!

The bell rings, fans rally up already, but Melo and Bron stare down. They slowly approach, fans chant for “NXT! NXT!” and the two finally tie up. They’re in a deadlock, Melo tries to push Bron back but Bron starts to steamroll Melo! Melo gets away before ending up in the corner, and they go again. Melo waistlocks, but Bron breaks free, so Melo shoves him away. Fans bark it up, and Bron circles with Melo. They approach, Bron switches around to lift and SLAM! Melo hurries up to his feet, but Bron tosses him away! Bron then gets down low and barks at Melo! Melo goes up the corner like a cat, and goes to the apron.

Melo and Trick talk strategy but Bron SLINGSHOTS Melo in! Melo rolls, slides, hurdles, then rolls off Bron’s back to DROPKICK him down! Fans fire up while Bron goes to a corner. Melo hits a free throw and taunts Bron. Bron rushes up, Melo gets around and headlocks. Bron powers out, things speed up, Bron hurdles to CLOBBER Melo! Fans are torn while Melo flounders away. Bron stalks Melo, runs in, but Melo dodges to springboard, only to slip! The ropes must be loose from all the action tonight. Bron drags Melo up, Melo JAWBREAKERS, then he springboards, only to bounce off Bron! And then Bron shoots his shot!

Bron whips then RANAS Melo! Bron shows he can go air, then he gator rolls Melo into a stalling suplex! Run and SLAM! Then kip up and STANDING MOONSAULT! Cover, TWO! Bron keeps cool and keeps Melo down with a facelock. Melo fights up, but Bron gator rolls him more. Melo reaches for ropes, but Bron keeps him away. Bron squeezes tighter on the facelock but Melo pulls on a leg. Bron uses that to throw Melo down and squeeze even tighter. Melo fights his way up as fans rally and duel. Melo stands, but Bron suplexes! Melo fights that off but he’s still in the facelock.

Bron suplexes Melo up and over hard, and Melo writhes to a corner. Bron storms up on Melo but Melo drop toeholds the legs! Bron hits ropes, Melo stomps away! The ref counts, Melo lets off, and then Melo hurries to kick away on Bron. The ref counts again, Melo lets back off, and fans duel while Bron clutches his ribs. Melo storms up but Bron elbows him away. Bron runs, Melo dodges, SPRINGBOARD LARIAT! Cover, TWO! Melo keeps Bron down with an armlock. Bron endures, fights around, but Melo pushes back as he keeps wanting that Fujiwara. Bron fights off the extension, but Melo pushes with his legs!

Fans rally and duel as Bron endures and Melo keeps on the pressure. Bron powers up, rolls Melo, TWO! Melo kicks low! Melo brings Bron around, whips him to a corner, then runs in to CHOP! Melo wraps the bad arm around ropes and YANKS it! Then he whips, but Bron reverses. Melo dodges in the corner to CHOP! Bron CHOPS! Melo kicks low again, then whips again. Bron blocks by holding ropes, then he whips Melo into the buckles. HIP TOSS on the rebound! Bron keeps moving, big shoulder tackles! Melo runs, tilt-o-whirls, but into a SIDE SLAM! Cover, TWO! Fans rally as Bron now clamps onto Melo with an armlock.

Melo clasps hands to fight off the extension but Bron drags him up. Bron CLUBS Melo’s shoulder, shoves him and ROCKS him in the back with a forearm. Fans duel as Bron stands Melo back up. Bron shoves and ROCKS Melo again, and then again. Bron keeps on Melo, back suplexes high and HARD! Cover, TWO! Trick is relieved but Bron stays focused. Bron drags Melo up, wrenches and lifts but Melo holds the ropes! Bron brings Melo away, torture racks him, but Trick brings Melo to the apron! The ref reprimands, and then he EJECTS Trick! Fans boo but now things are truly 1v1 here!

Both men talk some trash and the fans rally back up. Melo and Bron drag themselves back up with the ropes, and then head for each other. Melo ROCKS Bron with a haymaker, but Bron gives it back! Melo BACKHANDS Bron, so Bron DECKS Melo! Melo staggers up, and he ROCKS Bron again!

Bron and Melo go back and forth, faster and faster, haymaker for haymaker! Melo ROUNDHOUSES, jumps, but into a choke grip! But Melo spins it around, only for Bron to drag Melo down! STEINER RE- NO, Melo slips out and CLUBS Bron! Melo wants the crossface, Bron powers out to a SIDEWALK SLAM! But Melo snatches Bron! CROSSFACE!! Bron rolls to a cover, TWO! Bron is free, he runs, blows past Melo, SPEAR into the ref!! Melo and the ref are both down and Bron doesn’t realize it! Bron brings down the straps, drags Melo up, STEINER RECLINER!! Melo endures, TAPS, but there’s no ref to call it!!!

Bron only now realizes what’s wrong! And then Trick gets in to CLOBBER Bron with the belt!! Trick hides the evidence, puts Melo on the cover, and the ref regains consciousness! He counts, TWO!?!? Bron survives the sneaky Trick! Melo springboards, but into the choke grip! Trophy lift, BREAKKER- DDT!!! Melo turns it around!! Melo resets at the corner, climbs back up, for NOTHING BUT NET!!! Cover, MELO WINS!!

Winner: Carmelo Hayes, by pinfall (NEW NXT Champion)

Trick tried to give the assist, but in the end, Melo had to do it himself! Bron has been dethroned, but to show respect, he personally hands over the belt. Bron offers a fist-bump, and Melo says paper covers rock, a nod to Bron’s previous response. Bron raises Melo’s hand in victory and LA cheers. Now that Melo is truly The A Champion, will there be no stopping him?


My Thoughts:

An awesome Stand & Deliver here, and it really sets the tone for the whole weekend. A little disappointed they downgraded Chase U VS Schism to the kickoff show, but looking at the time, the main show wouldn’t have fit under the three hour mark HHH & HBK like to keep things. Chase U VS Schism was great stuff, and I love the double swerve Duke pulled. We all expected him to turn and join Gacy, only to use that as a way to lower Gacy’s guard. Great win for Chase U, which will still be a thing now, and anything’s possible for them now. Maybe Bate stays on as their singles title guy while Chase & Duke try for the tag titles again?

The ladder match opening was a great choice because that was wild stuff. Of all the possibilities, I did not expect Indi would win. No offense to her, I just thought this was going to be the moment she finally moves on to Raw to be with The Way. Instead, NXT gets a great reunion of #InDex so that Indi can finally have her moment, and she joins the very small club of NXT Women’s Tag & Singles Champions. And of course Jacy shows up to ruin things for Gigi, their feud is not done yet. Roxie is an interesting one, though. She already checked off everything in NXT, but I don’t know if she’s quite ready for RawDown just yet.

I personally am very happy to see Joe Coffey return, and it all played out as I expected. Joe helps Gallus Boys stay on top, and now there are endless possibilities for the full trio. Pretty Deadly getting on the nerves of Tony & Stacks was also a good touch, their match can help build the next contenders in a more traditional 2v2 feud. With that, I’m leaning towards Tony & Stacks, those guys definitely deserve a full feud with Gallus to go “firm against firm,” aka mafia against mafia like back when Tony was dealing with Legado del Fantasma. I still feel like The D’Angelo Family should get someone new to help with numbers, but it’s hard to say who that third man could be.

The North American Championship Fatal 5 practically stole the show there. All five guys are extremely talented, all the 1v1 combinations we saw in the match worked, and though there were some scary moments, all five made it to the end. Wes retaining with that interception was a great choice. It isn’t that Wes has something to prove, so much as Wes still has so many feuds he can have before finally losing the title and moving on to something else. The Unsanctioned Match from Gargano and Waller was great stuff, but naturally NXT was not going to go as bloody as AEW has with their Unsanctioned matches. Great to have Candice get involved, and it was a strong feel-good moment for Gargano to win so that The Way could have an even bigger reunion.

The Women’s Tag Team title match went about how I expected, too. It wasn’t even so much Fyre & Dawn getting between Kiana & Fallon so much as Kiana wanting to bend the rules and Fallon being against it. Jensen got stuck in the middle, as he has this whole time, and that cost Kiana & Fallon the titles. With nothing left to lose now, Fallon will surely reveal the truth about Kiana and Sebastian to Jensen and we get another match between the ladies. And then the main event, while not as wild as the ladder match or Fatal 5, had great storytelling. Both guys knew each other well enough to handle the other’s offense, but then they brought out tricks the other wasn’t aware of.

Though, it does disappointment me that Trick tried to screw Bron over when this was to be about respect. But at the same time, that attack didn’t finish it, Melo’s did, so it was still technically a clean win. The outcome I was hoping for still happens, in that Melo has the title and Bron is free to move on. Now, whether it’s RawDown or just a different title scene, who knows. Bron’s been ready for main roster for some time now, as far as having a complete look and the in-ring talent, and he’s spent plenty of time in NXT to where fans down there are mixed about seeing him. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see this Monday on Raw.

My Score: 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 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 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?

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?

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!

Austin stays in there for the BBSG but Uno stays on him with buckle bumps. The Dark Order isolates Austin as Collision goes picture in picture.

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! Silver scowls as he stays between Austin and The Acclaimed. Silver sits Austin up to KICK!

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! The fans fire up while Austin and Uno are both down! Uno and Austin crawl, their teams reach for them, and Hot tags to Bowens and Reynolds! The Five Tool Player rallies on the Dark Order! 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!!

The fans fire up and Quen can’t believe it! Quen calls to Zay, they get Sydal up to mug him. Private Party double whip, Sydal KICKS Quen then HEEL KICKS Zay, and a ROUNDHOUSE to Quen! 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!

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?

 

Thunder Rosa VS Cassandra Golden!

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.

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
