ROH Women’s World Championship Proving Grounds Match: Athena VS Lady Frost!

The Fallen Goddess keeps knocking down those put in front of her, and she doesn’t look to be stopping any time soon! Will the ten minute time limit be more than enough to eclipse another challenger? Or will her hot streak finally be cooled off by The Coolest Wrestler You’ll Ever Meet?

The Code of Honor is upheld but with tension as Athena is annoyed with the fans. The bell rings and we’re on the clock as the two circle. They approach, Frost gets around to a waistlock but Athena switches to headlock. Fans rally for Frost but Athena hits a headlock takeover. “Frost who?!” Frost still fights to a headscissor but Athena shrugs it off. They stand, Frost powers out, but Athena wrenches and whips. Frost ducks ‘n’ handsprings but Athena dodges.  Athena runs but Frost dodges the shotgun! Athena swings, Frost dodges and handsprings again, to headscissor Athena to a corner!

Fans fire up with Frost and she RAMS into Athena! And RAMS in again! Frost whips corner to corner, Athena reverses but Frost goes up, only for Athena to KICK her out of the air! Athena throws Frost into ropes and Frost falls back, Athena SENTONS! Cover, TWO! Athena is annoyed and she kicks Frost in the side. Athena digs a knee into Frost’s back and bends her backwards with the chinlock, but Frost endures so Athena throws her down. Athena stomps Frost to the corner while fans boo. Frost pushes Athena but Athena CLUBS her down! Athena pie faces Frost, pushes her around, and laughs at her.

Frost throws body shots! Fans rally as Frost fires off, runs, but into a scoop and BACKBREAKER! Athena bends Frost with a backbreaker rack but Frost still endures. Frost throws hands but Athena scoops her for a GUTBUSTER! Fans rally for Frost as she crawls to a corner, but Athena storms up. Athena stands Frost up but Frost forearms! Athena forearms back, but Frost gets the edge! Frost kicks a leg out, Athena ducks the buzzsaw but the HEEL KICK gets her on the return! Athena goes to a corner, Frost runs in and GAMANGIRIS! Frost sits Athena down, goes corner to corner, handspring CANNONBALL!

Frost puts Athena in the drop zone, goes up the corner, but Athena gest up to trip her up! Frost falls into a Tree of Woe, and Athena KICKS away on her back! Athena then BENDS Frost against ropes in a Tree of Woe Camel Clutch variant! The ref counts, Athena lets go to argue with the ref. Athena then goes back to Frost, drags her up, and she taunts her. Athena slaps Frost around, but Frost shoves back and SCREW HIGH KICKS! Frost puts Athena back in the drop zone, goes back up top, and fans fire up for the TWISTING MOONSAULT! But Athena flounders to ropes! Frost grabs at Athena as fans rally up!

Athena holds the ropes, Frost YANKS her up, but Athena lands on her feet to ROLLING ELBOW! Cover, Athena wins!

Winner: Athena, by pinfall (denies Frost a title match)

The Fallen Goddess rains down fists on Frost as payback for pushing her so far! Athena runs the ref off, gets the title belt, and SMASHES Frost on it! Athena grins then snarls, her mean streak growing along with her win streak. Will anyone ever stop her reign of terror?

 

The Kingdom speaks.

Mike Bennett says, “This… This is Ring of Honor. This was built on respect. On honor. Those three letters, they mean something to us.” Matt Taven says, “Final Battle was supposed to be our moment, it was supposed to be our rematch against The Briscoes for the titles that we lost against them in 2001. We finally came back to a new era of honor, and we’re not given what we deserve. Instead, we got Top Flight.” Mike says this is about family and the place THEY built. Mike is “sick and tired of watching these little kids like Top Flight and Action Andretti showing up and using OUR company as a step stool. At every chance they get, they steal OUR moment!”

Taven says instead, they got disrespected! And at Supercard, when it was their moment to show respect to their friend, Top Flight took that from them, too! It was their time to #ReachForTheSky and take back what is theirs, but EVERY team in that match stole that from them. As long as they live, they’ll never get that moment back. Maria says Jay Briscoe gave Maria respect! Jay gave Maria the revival of her career. So for someone to take moments away from The Kingdom, that is something she will NEVER forget. The trend of teaching Melvins lessons is going to continue until they get revenge on every team that was in that ladder match!

They are the Kingdom, and that means something to them. When they built this kingdom, no one respected them. There was no honor for the Kingdom, but they built up brick by brick what they are today. And all the teams they’ve faced along the way, from the Young Bucks to the Briscoes, they’re part of that kingdom. Of Maria’s Kingdom! When you talk about ROH, you’re really talking about something The Kingdom built. So whoever they face in the new era, they will be taught what ROH means. If you don’t give The Kingdom the honor they deserve, the Kingdom will take it! The Kingdom will show you what it means to be part of ROH!

This is the OGK, put respect on the names! Everyone else is a stepping stone in their kingdom! They are OGK, they are The Kingdom, but will they soon be tag team champions?

 

Rush & Preston Vance w/ Jose VS The Infantry!

El Toro Blanco y Perro Perigroso are representing for La Faccion Ingobernable, looking to make ROH tranquilo. Will they succeed in their mission? Or will Carlie Bravo & Captain Shawn Dean march up the ranks of the ROH Tag Division?

LFI fist bumps, and Vance starts against Carlie. Carlie offers the Code of Honor handshake, but Vance just flips him off and RAMS him into the corner! Vance lets off, to CHOP! Vance mocks the salute, takes a bow, but turns around into CHOP after CHOP from Carlie! ROLLING ELBOW! Carlie runs, but Vance BOOTS him down! Vance again raises the fist for LFI, and fans rally up. Vance bumps Carlie off buckles, CHOPS, then stomps away! Vance whips Carlie corner to corner, runs in and clotheslines! Then whip the other way, for another clothesline! And then back the other way, but Carlie BOOTS back!

Carlie runs, but into a SPINEBUSTER! Vance raises the fist again, then sucker punches Dean! Fans boo but Vance just soaks up the heat. Vance drags Carlie up, and into the TOP TEN FULL NELSON! Carlie endures, but Dean trips up Rush! Dean then gets in to RAM Vance! Dean CHOPS! The Infantry DOUBLE CHOP! They double whip, Vance breaks through the line to DOUBLE LARIAT! Fans rally, Vance puts Carlie in a corner and Dean in the other. Vance runs in to clothesline Dean! Vance runs corner to corner to CHOP! Vance raises the fist again, Dean staggers into the DISCUS LARIAT!

Carlie kicks low! Carlie runs, but into the DISCUS LARIAT! Vance covers, but he sits Carlie up!? Vance says his “hermano” Rush is getting his turn! Vance puts Carlie in a corner, tags Rush in, and fans rally up as Rush runs, for the BULL’S HORNS!! Cover, LFI wins!

Best Friends VS Joe Ocasio & Mookie Summers!

Trent Beretta & Chuck Taylor are trying to get up to some gold to match with Orange Cassidy, and now they’re battling in the ROH Tag Division! Will they find themselves climbing those ranks against The Undeniable and The American Draco?

The Code of Honor is skipped as Trent starts with Joe. They tie up, Trent puts Joe in the corner, but lets off as the ref counts. Joe sucker punches him! Joe stands Trent up to ROCK him with a right, then fire off body shots! Joe talks trash as he gets in Trent’s face, then wrenches and whips corner to corner.

Winners: Best Friends, by pinfall

The Code of Honor is upheld in the end as Trent shakes Joe’s hand, then shakes Mookie’s hand. Chuck follows suit, and then Best Friends HUG! You GOT to give- Oh, wait, wrong brand. But will Best Friends get what they want in an ROH Tag Team Championship match?

 

Brian Cage w/ Prince Nana VS Leon Ruffin!

The Machine has been on a run, especially as part of the ROH World Six Man Tag Team Champions. But will he continue to win for the Mogul Embassy? Or can the undeterred underdog find a way to stop the Path of Cage?

The Code of Honor is upheld, the bell rings, and Cage RAMS Ruffin right into a corner! Cage RAMS into Ruffin again and again, then CHOPS! Ruffin staggers to a corner and Cage stalks him. Cage whips Ruffin corner to corner, then runs in to SPLASH! Cage wrenches, clinches, and OVERHEAD Belly2Belly suplexes! Fans fire up and Cage flexes. Nana says Cage is the man!

Ruffin goes up and up and CROSSBODIES, but Cage catches him with ease! Cage does some bicep curls, before the POWERSLAM! Cage says Ruffin’s done! Cage toys with Ruffin, flexes, and then brings Ruffin back up. Cage fireman’s carries, for the F- DDT!! Ruffin turns things around on Cage and Nana freaks out! Ruffin goes to the apron, Cage runs in, into another GAMANGIRI! Ruffin goes up and around and under, but still gets caught! Ruffin throws elbows, but Cage back suplexes!

Ruffin lands on his feet! Ruffin then leapfrogs over Cage, goes up the corner, to FLYING CUTTER! Fans fire up with Ruffin and Nana is freaking out even more! Ruffin aims at Cage from the corner, runs in, into a LARIAT!! Cage drags Ruffin back up, to POWERBOMB! Deadlift POWER BREAKER!! And then the TEXAS CLOVERLEAF!! Ruffin taps, Cage wins!

Winner: Brian Cage, by submission

The Machine made the underdog pay for fighting so hard, and Nana mockingly shakes Ruffin’s hand. Will anything stop Cage and the entire Mogul Embassy from ruling ROH?

 

The Dark Order VS The Trustbusters w/ Slim J!

Evil Uno & Stu Grayson aren’t sweating The Righteous always creeping around, they just want to go for tag title gold. Will they start on that journey in the Steel City? Or will Sonny Kiss & Jeeves Kay make that money for Daivari Dinero?

But wait, speaking of The Righteous, they make their way out now! They have chairs, but just to sit on stage and watch this. Jeeves takes advantage of this distraction and blindsides Uno! The bell rings as Jeeves kicks Uno and stomps away! Stu protests but there’s nothing he can do as Jeeves stands Uno up to UPPERCUT! Jeeves whips, Uno reverses but Jeeves slides to DROPKICK! Jeeves UPPERCUTS in the corner, snapmares, and then goes up for the FALLING UPPERCUT! Cover, TWO! Jeeves keeps on Uno with another snapmare, then he tags in Kiss. Kiss slingshots to SPLIT on Uno! Cover, TWO!

Uno reaches for Stu but Jeeves holds him back! Uno powers forward, but Kiss runs in to jump on Uno with a SLEEPER! Uno still stays up, SNAP SUPLEX SENTON COMBO! Fans fire up as Uno crawls away from the Trustbusters, hot tag to Stu! Stu rallies on the Trustbusters, spins Kiss to an OVERHEAD Belly2Belly then kips up! Fans fire up, Jeeves CHOPS, but Stu doesn’t flinch. Jeeves CHOPS again, but still nothing!

Stu eggs Jeeves on, and Jeeves throws a forearm! Stu nods and eggs Jeeves on again. Jeeves swings, into the URENAGE! Stu then LION SENTONS! Kiss gets on the apron but backs off as Stu storms up. Stu fireman’s carries Jeeves, but Jeeves slips free to shove Stu! Uno tags in, Stu whips Jeeves then hurdles. Uno reels Jeeves into a suplex, Stu ROUNDHOUSES before the BRAINBUSTER! Kiss returns to ENZIGURI Stu! Uno avoids the heel kick to ROCK Kiss, and then The Dark Order pops Kiss up into the Electric Chair, toss into the POWERBOMB! Fans fire up as Stu goes to the corner and tags back in.

Uno gets Jeeves up, Stu runs in, PENALTY KICK PILEDRIVER!! Cover, the Dark Order wins!

Winners: The Dark Order, by pinfall

The Righteous applaud, perhaps more for Stu than for The Dark Order. Stu & Uno storm up to the stage to stare down Dutch & Vincent. Will the Dark Order get the Righteous to back off? Or will Stu end up joining them?

 

Backstage interview with Christopher Daniels.

Dasha is with the Fallen Angel and says the last few times we’ve heard from him, he’s been on this quest for victories and for championships. What is next for him on said journey? Daniels says he has to be honest, after 30 years in professional wrestling, Daniels knows what it is like to be at the top of the mountain, and at the bottom of the valley. Right now, Daniels is at one of his all-time lows. He hasn’t had his hand raised in victory as often as he’d like. But because this is ROH, he understands that nothing is just handed to him! Nothing comes easy in an ROH ring!

It doesn’t matter that Daniels is the first-ever ROH Grand Slam Champion! It doesn’t matter that he’s been a tag team champion, it doesn’t matter that he’s been a world champion. Daniels has to earn everything that he wants, everything that he desires, in ROH. He understands that. And he’s not starting at the bottom, doing the baby steps. If he’s gonna swing, he swings for the fences. And so he calls out the ROH World Television Champion, Samoa Joe! Joe and Daniels have “a history that is long and drenched in blood,” mostly Daniels’. They’ve been teammates, opponents, and have fought tooth ‘n’ nail for what they’ve wanted.

Right now, what Daniels wants is on Joe’s waist, is on Joe’s shoulder. Daniels has held the TV title before, but if he wants it again, he has to go through one of the toughest SOBs he’s ever stood across the ring from. Look in Daniels’ eyes. Does he look afraid to do that again? Does he look intimidated to put his name in the hat against Joe? NO! Daniels is ready to go. “Beat me if you can. Make me bleed if you can, Joe. Because I want that World Television Championship, Joe. And I know you’re a fighting champion, Joe, so how about you and I, one-on-one, in a ROH ring, for that TV title, next week?” The Fallen Angel wants after the King, but will he take Joe’s throne?

 

Diamante VS Skye Blue!

The Cuban Diamond has been sharpening her edge in the Dark of AEW, but she’s ready to shine in the light! Will she crush her opponent under the pressure? Or will Skye continue to reach for the sky in her own journey to the top?

They RAM shoulders, but Diamante stays up. Diamante eggs Skye on, Skye runs, but Diamante follows to then run Skye over! Things speed up, Diamante tilt-o-whirls, crucifix to sunset flip, TWO! Skye sits on Diamante, TWO! Diamante sunset flips again, TWO! Skye sits again, TWO! Diamante sunsets, TWO! Skye sits, TWO! Diamante, TWO! Skye, TWO! Diamante, TWO! Skye, TWO!! The teetertotter stops and fans fire up while Diamante bails out.

Diamante goes to the apron, Skye runs in but Diamante dodges the boot to ROCK Skye! And then NECKBREAKER HOTSHOT! Skye flops to the apron, Diamante runs and WRECKS Skye with a baseball dropkick! Diamante flexes, then goes out to fetch Skye. Diamante RAMS Skye into the apron, pushes her into the ring, and then drops an elbow! Diamante drops knees on Skye’s back, then bends her backwards with a chinlock. Fans rally and Skye fights up to throw body shots. Skye runs, but into a scoop and BACKBREAKER! Diamante pushes Skye around, stomps her around, then smacks her off the mat! Cover, TWO!

Skye goes corner to corner and runs in, but Diamante puts her on the apron. Skye ROUNDHOUSES Diamante away, goes up top, CROSSBODY! Cover, TWO! Skye grows a bit frustrated, but she runs at the ropes. Diamante dodges, waistlcoks, but Skye elbows free.

Skye switches with Diamante, SHINING WIZARDS and snapmares, but Diamante blocks the superkick. Diamante spins Skye but Skye BASEMENT ENZIGURIS! Fans fire up and Skye sees Diamante go to the apron. Skye joins her out there, drags her up, and reels her in, but Diamante throws elbows! Skye throws forearms but Diamante throws them back! The fans fire up as they brawl on the edge, and Skye gets the edge! Diamante ROCKS Skye, blocks a superkick and ROCKS her again, to APRON GERMAN SUPLEX! Skye flops into the corner, Diamante runs corner to corner to HYDRAULIC DROPKICK! Cover, ROPEBREAK!!

Diamante can’t believe Skye survives, but she says this will end it. Diamante suplexes, Skye slips free to full nelson! Diamante drops, but Skye sits on her, SKYE WINS!

Winner: Skye Blue, by pinfall

The ROH win streak continues for Skye! But out walks Athena, mocking Skye by wearing a baseball cap. Athena takes it off to then STOMP the hat! Skye dares Athena to step to her if she thinks she’s so tough! Will the Fallen Goddess soon put up her gold against the Blue?

The King of Sneaky Style takes on The Firm’s innovator of #TAIGASTYLE in a first-time-anywhere showdown! So if styles make fights, will it be Azucar or Pittsburgh’s own that comes out on top?

Morrissey with a huge assist in this match, The Firm is rolling! But will they survive the coming #FirmDeletion with these kinds of tactics?

 

Rocky Romero speaks backstage.

“Lee Moriarty, you’re the type of talent that ROH, this company, was built on. You’re the type of talent that could be ROH World Champion. And tonight, you out-sneaked the King of Sneaky Style with your seven-foot insurance policy. But I’m not happy with that. No. Next week: Pure Rules match, Rocky ‘Azucar’ Romero against Lee Moriarty. And you can get a pure ass whooping next week!” Rocky is ready to teach Lee a lesson, will there be no helping #TAIGASTYLE get out of this?

A split second after that three count, Loco kicks out! Loco was so close, but Blake snatches that one away! These two shake hands to uphold the Code of Honor, will we see this one again down the line?


My Thoughts:

A great ROH, but only just over an hour? That’s rather surprising. Though with AEW wanting to bring out another two hour show in Collision, maybe wrestlers who crossover between AEW and ROH are going to be needed to fill out that programming, leaving less available for ROH tapings, and therefore, ROH has to downsize already. And even then, it felt like they stretched things out to fill the hour. The Kingdom’s promo felt like it was a couple lines too long. They could’ve trimmed it down by what ended up a paragraph in this write-up, and it would’ve flowed better. But at least it was them issuing a warning to all the tag teams from the Supercard of Honor ladder match, helping them move on from Top Flight and closer to the tag titles.

Christopher Daniels also had a good promo but it also felt like he was stretching for time. I thought he was going to call out Claudio, which would’ve made sense after what the BCC did to him on Rampage. But at the same time, Samoa Joe really does need more for his TV title reign, and Joe VS Daniels is going to be great stuff. Still kinda wish Mark Briscoe won that title at Supercard. Anyway, really good Proving Grounds match and good win for Athena. Good match between Diamante and Skye, and Skye’s been going strong so her winning made sense. Athena showing up to warn Skye was a bit of a surprise, as I don’t see Skye ready for the title. Athena will surely win, but I guess Skye will get a great showing even in defeat.

Really good tag match for LFI VS Infantry, but wow, I didn’t think Vance was going to basically solo Dean & Carlie. LFI in whatever combination is a good choice for facing the Lucha Brothers, but I feel like this should build to a contender’s match between LFI, The Kingdom, and at least one other team. The Dark Order has a good match with the Trustbusters, with The Righteous’ presence only a moderate distraction. Dark Order VS The Righteous will be more about where Stu goes than the titles, but Dark Order can definitely win to keep Stu and then go for the titles. But even then, I feel like Lucha Brothers beat whoever because it’ll be their first defense that they should definitely win.

Best Friends squash Joe & Mookie, keeping them going in the ROH Tag Division, and maybe they get in on the title conversation. It feels like they’ll be on that list of crossover wrestlers that will go back to AEW full time once Collision starts up. Brian Cage and Leon Ruffin have a really good match, though still pretty quick because Cage is like three Ruffins put together. Not sure why we’re not seeing the Gates of Agony in action after the Embassy retained the Six Man titles. And if they’re backing up Swerve, can we see them brawl with Keith Lee & Dustin Rhodes already? That’s a feud that’s been building far too slowly, but probably because they started with Parker Boudreaux & “Trench,” who were more meat than henchmen.

Good stuff out of Rocky VS Moriarty, but of course Morrissey makes the difference. Rocky had a good promo to call Moriarty out and challenge him for a Pure Rules match. That’ll be really good stuff, and at this point, I feel like the winner of that can face Shibata for the Pure Championship, after we see Shibata VS Coughlin, of course. And really good main event from Blake Christian VS Gringo Loco. It was a lot like looking at a before and after of high-flying wrestler, and I did not expect Blake to win that. Was it a count botch from the ref? Did Loco just lose count himself? Who knows, but I suppose this could make for good “crisis of confidence” story as Loco struggles to get a win now that he’s reached this level of competition.

My Score: 8.6/10

I’ll be honest, since the lead up hasn’t exactly sparked much excitement from me, I can’t really tell what might get relegated to Countdown and what will be on the main show aside from major title stories. So with that being said, I’ll cover the Countdown this time around, because well…who knows what will be on it.

Let’s hope that the bit of momentum with the WWE working relationship and the stories coming out about the locker room being seemingly happy with the direction of things; have to hope that will start to equate to a product that makes some damn sense.

Countdown to Against All Odds: Jonathan Gresham vs Sami Callihan

Callihan attacks The Octopus on the outside before the bell rings. A few chops around the ring and bounces Gresham’s face off the post twice. Sami goes for the Cactus Driver on the outside, but Gresham rotates all the way through to grab the ropes and counter Sami. Gouges Sami’s face, breaks fingers Pentagon style, and Sami retreats to a different side of the outside of the ring. Octopus chases and keeps working on the hand, but Sami counters and starts going for a few more Knife Edge Chops. Sami tries to Lawn Dart Gresham into the post, but Gresham slips and shoves Sami into the post. Now Octopus back to working on the left hand and arm. Arm Wringers and Uppercuts right into the elbow.

Sami gets some control back, rolls Gresham into the ring and now the match can officially start…OR NOT! Gresham rolls back out and heads under the ring so Sami goes hunting for Octopus. Gresham grabs the left arm from under the ring, uses a chair since the ring obscures the referee’s vision, and then slowly they head back in the ring. Soccer Ball kick to the injured arm, and Gresham continues to try and work on the arm, but Sami is fighting back. Sami tries to Irish Whip, but the sells the left arm! Callihan adjusts his offense and tries to use his legs and only the good right arm. But as soon as he goes for a Cactus Driver, the arm sell happens again.

Gresham rips the mask off the referee, Kushida shows up in a Doc Brown gimmick and with a mask. He attacks Gresham while the ref is distracted to swab out the ink and place it into a vial. Sami connects with the Cactus Driver ’97 and wins.

Insanely gimmicky, extremely stupid. Feels like a dumbass thing that would happen on DDT, not an American program. So they made Gresham talk last night, which ruins the essence of a evil character, and now they have him lose with Kushida trying to do science on what the ink is. I can’t properly express how many brain cells I feel like I lost. 

Countdown to Against All Odds: TNA Knockouts Tag Team Titles: DeMALISH (Masha Slamovich & Alisha Edwards) vs The Hex (Marti Belle & Allysin Kay)

Marti and Alisha start, Marti uses Alisha’s face like a speed bag, tags in Allysin, quick tandem work gives The Hex a nearfall. Alisha manages to run to make the tag, and Masha comes in, but immediately starts dominating Masha. Tandem Snapmare, Fun Splash, Senton, PK, for another near fall from The Hex. Allysin tries to shoot Masha across, Masha gets the Arm Wringer, drives Allysin into her corner, but a Boot stops Masha. Allysin tries to get out and Alisha grabs Allysin by the hair to pull her back.

Alisha gets in a few quick shots, Allysin tries to fight back, but the Eye Rake evens the score. Alisha tags out, Hip Attack from Masha into repeated Snapmares with the hair into a near fall. Short Arm Lariats, Masha connects on two, Allysin counters the third, they both hit the ropes, stereo Clothesline spot into the simultaneous tags. Marti beats on Alisha in the corner, Double Knees into a two count. SAVAT KICK from Masha to level Marti, Allysin takes out Masha, Delish from Alisha, Marti hits The Stroke, and all four are down for a few moments. Rolling Forearm into Saito Suplex for another near fall on Alisha. Hex Marks the…nope Alisha slips the move, Masha gets in things breakdown into a sloppy fight, Alisha tries to shove Allysin into Marti but hits Masha. HEX MARKS THE SPOT, Masha makes the save, barely! Dual spots in corners, Alisha fights off Allysin with the Avalanche Powerbomb, Masha Electric Chairs Marti, STEINERIZER! DeMALISH retain.

Mike Santana & Steve Maclin vs The Rascalz (Trey Miguel & Zachary Wentz)

Rascalz try to utilize their speed and teamwork advantage with a tag out the gates as Trey distracts Santana, Wentz runs in, and they match each other. Counters, dodges, really fun equal footing but different styles opening. Simultaneous tags Trey and Maclin are in, Maclin quickly takes advantage of Trey, tags in Santana and they go for a Dual Suplex, but Wentz catches Trey and then takes out Maclin. Santana gets surprised by Trey, Body Scissors into a Double Stomp, then Trey tags in Wentz and a quick Tandem kick. Santana tries to fight back against Wentz, but Wentz eats a few chops and then turns it around. Tag out to Trey, Trey connects with a low single leg Dropkick for a near fall. Kick Rush from Rascalz, Wentz tries to punctuate with a Stomp on the back of the head but Santana dodges and Double Lariats The Rascalz. Maclin tags in and starts stacking up the Rascalz and beating them like they owe him money. Maclin tries a SCUD but Wentz catches him with a Cutter in the ropes, shortcut double team offense.

The ref was distracted with Santana trying to get in to stop the double team, so Maclin kicks out easily because of a slow start to the count. Trey with a cheap choke, then he tags in, goes for a disrespectful Half Crab and Santana just kicks Trey in the back. Rascalz find interesting ways to keep working over Maclin, Trey goes for a Popping Meteora, but Maclin stop it, turns it into an Electric Chair style counter and tags in Santana. Santana with the hot tag, takes out both Rascalz, stacks them interestingly to pull off a tandem DDT. Maclin and Santana work together, Maclin kicks Santana to send him into his Rolling Buck Fifty, Maclin then connects with a Busaiku Knee, and only 2 since Trey breaks it up! Rascalz finally get the best of things, a tandem Rope Assisted Pedigree with a Swanton from Wentz, but Maclin kicks out.  MACLIN EATS THE CHELSEA GREEN FUCK YOUR FACE IN THE CORNER DROPKICK SPOT!  Rolling Double Stomp! Santana rolls in to make the save, Hot Fire Flame attempt but Maclin gets the knees up. Cradle attempt, but they push off Maclin into Santana. Superkick Party on Maclin, Buckshot Lariat from Santana wipes out Trey, Enzuigiri from Santana. They set each other up, Caught in the Crosshairs , Spin the Block! Santana and Maclin win.

This is the first objectively smart thing TNA has done in the post-Scott era. Maclin and Santana were amazing together. This is a pairing that people will want to see again, and if they double down on it being a “one off”, it will make people want to see it again. Damn good stuff here.

PCO vs Rich Swann w/AJ Francis

Swann runs around tries to get frisky, but PCO grab him, Boots him, chucks him into the corner, Hesitation Dropkick to the back of Rich’s head for a near fall. AJ tries to pick the ankle, PCO kinda cares, but then eats a Superkick that does nothing. PCO charges, Rich hits the Low Bridge and PCO crashes to the floor. 450 from the apron, and Rich throws him back in and starts kicking PCO and hits a Bronco Buster.PCO fires back up, levels Rich, drapes him over the bottom rope and hits the Guillotine Leg Drop, driving Swann’s face into the mat. AJ grabs Rich’s foot and puts it on the bottom rope, then faceplants PCO on the apron. Rich takes too long to capitalize, PCO trips Swann, Lungblower from the corner spot, PCO Dives on AJ to try and equal the playing field. PCO-SAULT, 1-2-3, PCO wins.

SDL’s music hits, she walks out smiling and looking like a snack. Asks for the mic, and SDL plays with the crowd about different ways to say yes or no. Her answer is: OUI! 

TNA Tag Team Championships: The Nemeth Bros (Ryan & Nic Nemeth) vs The System (Eddie Edwards & Brian Myers) (c)

Brian Myers starts with Ryan, Ryan gets a quick advantage, they go for a tandem Arm Wringer/Neckbreaker combo. Myers tags out, Nic tries to throw a Superkick but Lish grabs the foot. WAIT DIRTY DANGO shows up out of nowhere and rats out Alisha?! We haven’t seen him in months since they punked out Oleg Prudius and him against Josh Alexander. So Lish gets ejected but The System jumps on Nic and tries to get in a few quick shots to try and end this quickly now they don’t have insurance.

Belly to Back Suplex from Myers after Eddie uses the ropes for a cheap choke, Eddie officially tags back in, and just quick tags and snappy offense from The System. Myers goes for the Manhattan Drop but Nic gets away from him, tags out to Ryan and a few quick attacks into a Rude Awakening for a near fall. Myers checks Ryan with a Boot to the gut, Eddie tags in, Eddie bounces off the ropes and Body Checks Ryan, while Myers connects with the Spear, but Nic makes the save! Myers shoves Ryan into their corner, Ryan tries to fight out to get to Nic, but a Drop Toe Hold puts a stop on the surge. Ryan counters with a Sunset Flip, but Myers manages to make the tag before falling over, so the pinfall doesn’t count and Eddie starts laying into Ryan. We get an “Ooo fuck Eddie Edwards” chat that pops up. Eddie goads the crowd a bit and tags in Myers. Headlock on Ryan, Ryan tries to Elbow out, but Myers stays in control and the crowd keeps talking shit to Eddie even though he’s not the legal man “fuck your fo-hawk”. Myers poses, Ryan hits a Reverse X Factor, simultaneous tags. Nic is on fire, laying everyone out, Jumping Leg Drop on Eddie for 2. Fame-ASSER! But only another 2 count.

Moose is down at ringside now, Eddie and Myers with their System Overload combo of Backpack Stunner and Elbow Drop for 2! Ryan grabs Eddie to stop Boston Knee Party, Superkick, into their Highway to the Danger Zone finish! 1-2-SOMEONE PULLS THE REF! Moose points at Dango, the ref is confused, Nic dives on Moose, Dango shows his true colors and clocks Ryan Nemeth. Boston Knee Party, The System retains the gold!

Joe Hendry w/Ace Steel vs Frankie Kazarian

Frankie Kazarian getting compared to Antonio Banderas and then calling him the dad from Spy Kids is fantastic. 

Hendry and Kaz Shoulder Tackle each other, trade a couple shots and then Hendry lifts him for the stalling suplex. Kaz tries to break it with punches to the body, but Hendry holds strong and connects with the Vertical Suplex. Kaz powders to the apron, Hendry tries to collect him but gets caught with the Guillotine Leg Drop. Kaz throws a few moves together, including his Side Russian Leg Sweep for a near fall. Scoop Slam from Kaz, Springboard Guillotine Leg Drop for 2! Kaz tries to cinque in the Body Scissors and Headlock, but Hendry powers through and turns it into a Suplex to break Kaz’s momentum.

Kaz gets whipped into the corner, gets the boot up, tries a Crossbody but Hendry catches him and his the Sack of Shit into the kip up! Kaz tries the Chicken Wing to slow down Hendry trying to keep momentum, a flurry of strikes with a big PK to give Kaz some space. Fade to Black attempt, but nope, Hendry tries a Powerbomb but Kaz slips it and connects with a Back Stabber! Runs the ropes and Kaz gets caught in a Pop-Up Powerbomb for 2! Kaz tries to bait in Hendry to the apron, Hendry grabs a roll of quarters from his tights, Hendry connects with an outside in Belly to Back Suplex, but Kaz pops him with the loaded fist and gets the win!

Post match, Kaz goes for a Chicken Wing to add insult to injury, Ace Steel finally comes all the way out and clocks Kaz. 

X Division Championship: Trent Seven vs Mustafa Ali (c)

Trent said the tape machines kept rolling, they show post-interview footage where Mustafa says the X Division title is a prop, he doesn’t even live in Chicago, and just freaking out. Mustafa charges Trent, Trent dodges and Mustafa bounces his face off the buckles, SEVEN STAR LARIAT! 1-2-Kick out! That was nearly a quick loss. Ali slows down Trent a few times, and the crowd is dumb and gives the “we still love you” to Ali. Ali with a Jumping DDT, then a Dive on Trent, but Trent shoves Ali into the apron and then a Dragon Suplex onto the floor. Back in the ring, Trent goes for the Corkscrew Senton but misses everything and grabs his leg.

Shotgun Dropkick into the corner from Ali, Trent absorbs and follows with a Lariat, Ali reverses Trent for another Dropkick, goes for a third but Trent catches him and Powerbombs him into the middle of the ring for a near fall. Birminghammer attempt, but Eye Gouge from Ali, Trent with an open hand Chop but Ali baits him into the corner, Gamegiri into the Rolling DDT for 2. Ali with some hammering Forearms, but Trent with a Flowsion out of nowhere to get some separation. Fighting Spirit spot, Ali does my favorite thing! He doesn’t fall for the Bop and Bang and just Roundhouse Kicks Trent in the face. Too bad Ali falls for it like 2 moves later. Ali DDTs the leg, then tries another Rolling DDT, but Trent connects with a Dragon Suplex into the Sitout Powerbomb for two. X Plex attempt, but Ali shoves Trent and the ref cowers in the corner almost bumped, Low Blow into in a Lariat for a near fall!

Ali goes to get his belt, the referee stops him, Trent hits a Low Blow as the ref is putting the belt back, BIRMINGHAMMER! 1-2-NO!

Mustafa tries to bail, grabs the ring apron as Trent pulls him back, Chops him in the back a few times, crotches him in the corner, Avalanche BIRMINGHAMMER? Eye Gouge fights back, kicks out the leg, and then 450 to the injured legs into a Scorpion Deathlock! Trent taps out.

Josh Alexander & Eric Young vs The ABC (Ace Austin & Chris Bey)

Early on we get the typical watered down Japanese tag style of a few fancy counters like La Magistral Cradles and Suplex counters and stuff, but nothing really worth typing about. Which is smart since the last match was pretty hot, so you want to start simple and build. ABC start going for a few higher risk moves with Tandem Shoot Ins for Jumping High Kicks and Back Head Kicks. EY Up and Overs Bey, whips him into the opposite corner and tags in Josh. Josh goes for his locomotion Shoulder Tackles, Bey tries to counter it and go for an Art of Finesse, but Josh catches him and Release German Suplexes him. Teamwork from Josh, Gutbuster and Elbow Drop combination for a 2. Ace tries to get involved and Josh and Bey go for THE OLE DICK TWIST! I’m not really sure what I’m looking at beyond a meme and it’s Chicago…so I’m not surprised. But just…why.

Things break down a little everyone’s doing stuff, Josh perches Ace for the Low Crossbody but Ace dodges it! Then Ace does his Handstand dodge, Josh just grabs his Ankle though. Ace tries to hold onto the ropes to he doesn’t completely fall, Bey dives over Ace and lays out Josh but then EY flies and takes out Bey. Ace posts EY, Josh walks back in the ring and calls Ace in. Josh goes for an Avalanche Death Valley Driver, Ace fights it off, Ace hits the Flipping Outside In Headscissors. Goes for an Overhead Spin Kick, but Josh catches the foot. Ace fights out, ABC try to team up on Josh but a Suplexes both and tags out to EY. Discus Lariat into a Spicolli Driver on Ace! Bey kicks him, Ace tries something, but EY stacks them on his shoulders, they both slip him, Dual Roundhouse Kicks! But only a 2 count.

Everyone doing things in the ring, a cameraman gets taken out literally, the camera looks like scrambled porn in the 90s. Powerbreaker from Josh for 2! Rolling Senton into the Macho Elbow, but Ace makes the save. EY accidentally lays out Josh, EY tries to Piledriver Bey but Ace jumps over the world and hits The Fold on EY! Bey with the Jacknife cover and ABC win!

TNA Knockouts Championship: Jordynne Grace (c) vs Tatum Paxley

Personal concierge shows up after Tatum makes her entrance, ASH by Elegance will show up…to watch the match, as per usual. 

Things start a little slow, Tatum brings that quirky unhinged Hot Topic girl energy, and Jordynne is Thicc Mama Pump. Okay Tatum counters Jordynne’s rope run by very suggestively enticing her to come into full mount. Jordynne manages to grab her foot and get her to stand up to just Reverse Side Slam her and go for the Camel Clutch. Tatum gets out of it with biting her hand, and then heads under the ring. ASH is actually telling her where she is, Jordynne tries to grab her, but Tatum pulls her into the steel ring frame. She tries to Suplex her, but Jordynne blocks a few times, so Tatum just drives her into the post.

Tatum pulls off the old Lance Storm counter into the Half Crab, but Jordynne gets out of it. Back Kick from Jordynne, Jordynne tries the Vader Bomb, but Paxley cuts her off first, tries a Rope Hung Neckbreaker, but Jordynne holds on. Hits two Vader Bombs only for near falls. Juggernaut Driver attempt, but Tatum stops it, Jordynne hits the Rolling Fent Back Elbow. They fight in the corner, Uppercut from Jordynne, KINNIKU BUSTER! We know that won’t finish the match, Tatum tries a slide and we go into a Locomotion Cradles. Paxley connects with a Spear that she rolls through beautifully, but both women have counters for counters for counters. Tatum is perched in the corner, they’re fighting on the middle rope, AVALANCHE LOBOTOMY, 1-2-NOPE! Tatum starts clawing at the ears since she had the stitches after the Roxxane Perez match. Tatum with a Seated Head and Neck Choke, but Jordynne fights through and they start slapping each other. Jordynne goes for a lazy cover, and Tatum tries to surprise her with a Guillotine Choke! Grace stands up, Jackhammer for 2!

Jordynne clubs with a few Vader Hammers, Tatum tries to counter, Grace goes for the Sp inning Backfist but Tatum ducks it the first time, but not the second. Death Valley Driver into Juggernaut Driver, and Jordynne retains!

ASH attacks Jordynne after the match but Jordynne fights her off. Covers ASH in her bottle of champagne, then takes a swig herself and walks off victorious while ASH and concierge are slipping and looking like dorks.

BROKEN RULES – TNA World Heavyweight Championship: Moose (c) vs Broken Matt Hardy

The Nemeth Fuschnikens show up and take out The System! Only Lish is now left. 

Matt takes advantage of the early distraction, Twist of Fate attempt but Moose spins out but Matt turns it into the DDT. Side Effect from Hardy on the apron, then he hits the Twist of Fate on the outside. Moose sells dead weight well, Matt finally rolls him in, then Moose keeps rolling. Moose and Lish find weapons, and Moose hits Matt with a trash can lid and Baking Sheet. Moose takes one of many chairs, and just lays into Matt a handful of times. Moose barks at the camera that he’s “Gonna end his damn career”, so he fishing out a ladder from under the ring.

Moose smacks Matt with a few more chair shots and then makes a Ladder + Chair ramp contraption. Jacknife attempt from Moose, Hardy drops to his knees and Upper Cuts Moose’s balls! Then Matt starts using a chair of his own. Moose powders, Matt follows and they take this throw the crowd and goes somewhere…the camera work is a little useless. It’s like N.E.W. Indy level of “we can’t see”. I’m just assuming moves were attempt, looks like maybe a Jacknife that Matt counters and goes up high, just to do a Delete chant. I want a Balcony Level Extreme Leg Drop! But they head back to the ring, so at least now we can see, and Matt bounces Moose’s face off the post and rolls Moose in. Vertical Suplex from Matt, then he goes to the second rope, Elbow Drop for 2! Matt sets up for Twist of Fate, Moose pushes off and URANAGE counter! 1-2-kick out! Moose wanders out to find more weapons and drags out a table, as the peasants rejoice.

Propping the table in the corner, we see Moose trying to set up Matt for the Spear. they both dodge attempting to be put through the table, so Moose Sabu’s Matt with a chair. Moose sets up a pile of chairs, grabs Senor Hardy and they go up the turnbuckle Superplex into the chairs, only for 2! Alisha is also yelling at this very audible annoying Chicago fan. Moose goes for a second Chair spot, but Matt slips the Suplex and Avalanche Powerbomb into the chairs! Matt goes for the cover, but Moose kicks out! Hardy goes under the ring for a…. CARDBOARD BOX! A PARCEL OF CHIPBOARD! Moose decks Matt, opens the box and it’s Moose’s throwback Patriots Helmet. Moose puts his old helmet on, charges Matt Hardy and Matt Back Drops him into the Chekov’s Ladder+Chair. Matt goes for a table and another ladder. Is Matt gonna go for another crazy bump? OH Hardy gets a Bears helmet. Now it makes sense why it was a throwback Patriots helmet, because of the 1985 Bears Super Bowl. Matt clocks Moose with the Bears Helmet, the crowd chants “CTE”, Matt puts Moose on the table, EXTREME LEG DROP from the ladder!

Hardy puts the chair around Moose’s head, TWIST OF FATE into the chair! Goes for the cover and Alisha brings out Kendra and lights up Matt. REBY COMES OUT! She takes her earrings off and someone else is holding her baby! Spanish girl serious fighting 101! Reby hits the Twist of Fate on Lish and tries to help out Matt. Moose sees Matt coming and pulls Reby in the way! Matt spears his wife through the table and then Moose hits LIGHTS OUT!

 

Overall Score: 7.75/10

Well admittedly the first half of the show had a good bit of gimmicky extra bodies overbooking. Kushida, Dango and Jeff Hardy being back is definitely a positive thing with Slammiversary next up. Nic Nemeth hopefully picks up a little more steam, because early splitting time with New Japan stifled his initial impact, now with two title losses in like 4 months of activity is a little silly. Hendry getting a hold over rivalry to slow roll his rise in popularity could be ok. I think they’re not on a large enough scale to benefit more from a slow burn as opposed to cashing in now. But it’s wrestling, you never know. Plus if he gets some shine in NXT, it could be better to ride that exposure wave as well.

The card had overall solid action, even if booking was suspect at moments through the night and the audio for the Ali tape was awful…ruined the intended effect. Jordynne with the opening challenge and an at home annoyance is a good angle. System will probably get into a feud with The Hardys, ya know, while neither is injured. Moose has Hendry looming, but again, not sure how they’re gonna play that card. Also for personal reasons I wanna see if Xia continues to be SDL’s love council bestie type character now that she agreed to date PCO.

So yeah, pretty good show all things considered. The end of the show sends people home happy with Jeff Hardy returning to stand tall with Reby, Matt, Joe Hendry and the Nemeths. There’s a lot to play out. Even if somethings sound super stupid right now (looking at you Octopus and Doc Kushi). But, at least there different levels of storylines to figure out. So when it comes down to the bare bones, the show did its job and was a pretty enjoyable watch.

Backstage interview with Harley Cameron.

Arkady Aura is with The Outcasts’ crazier component, and says she’s a bit surprised to see Harley without Saraya, considering the big win last week. Yeah, yeah, who cares? Saraya is not here as a form of protest! All these women are all declaring for the Women’s Owen Hart Tournament. Oh~, declaring~! What are we? Royal subjects? Oh, a royal decree from the king! Or maybe we’re more old Southern women, “Oh, I do declare!” The only one who should be declaring anything is Saraya. Because the winner gets a world title shot at All In. And who was it that won last year at Wembley Stadium? Saraya! What a declaration!

And with that said, Saraya’s done it before, and she will do it again. And now Harley declares this interview over, goodbye. Then from Harley’s mouth to the world’s ears, will Saraya make sure she is the one crowned the 2024 Queen of Harts before crowning herself champion once again?

 

AEW hears from Thunder Rosa and Deonna Purrazzo.

La Mera Mera tells “Deonna, you might’ve been a little bit busy, but there were some flashing news. Saturday is the one-year anniversary of Collision. And as a tradition, Thunder Rosa always likes to pick a fight. And who else than you?” But The Virtuosa asks back, what does Rosa not understand here? Rosa’s selfishness has forced Deonna to embrace her own. But La Mera Mera isn’t owed anything. From where Deonna comes from, those who want respect must show respect. And those who refuse get respect beaten into them. Saturday Night Collision, Rosa VS Deonna, NO DISQUALIFICATIONS! And Deonna asks what Rosa thinks happens when her head collides with a chair.

Rosa says nothing will stop her from showing Deonna the real respect of a warrior. No disqualifications, no problems. Happy Anniversary, Collision! But who will celebrate by standing over the other’s battered body?

 

Six Man Tag: The Cage of Agony VS Solomon Tupu, Jay Marston & Kevin Gutierrez!

Brian Cage, Bishop Kaun & Toa Liona have broken away from Swerve’s House to do things their way. So far, so good, for them. But will their opponents wish it’d been another three sent into The Cage of Agony?

The trios sort out, Tupu starts against Kaun, and the two circle. Liona distracts Tupu and Kaun DROPKICKS Tupu into the corner! Kaun CHOPS, then fires off forearms! The ref counts, Kaun bumps Tupu off buckles to then fire off more forearms. Kaun CHOPS, the ref has him back off, and Kaun runs in. Tupu goes up and over, keeps moving, and Gutierrez tags in. Kaun CLOBBERS Tupu but Gutierrez kicks low! Gutierrez whips but Kaun reverses. Gutierrez ducks ‘n’ dodges, but Liona sneaks a tag. Gutierrez hurdles but turns around into a BOOT! Liona CLOBBERS Gutierrez! Liona looms over Gutierrez, drags him up, then BODY SHOTS!

It’s another Forbidden Door appetizer as Azucar “welcomes” The Roughneck back to AEW! #SHOOTER has learned a lot from Jon Moxley over the past four years, will he show all those lessons have paid off? Or will Rocky make it clear Shota’s still got a lot to learn?

The bell rings and the two shake hands to show there’s sportsmanship here. The fans cheer, the two tie up, and Shota wrenches to a wristlock. Rocky rolls, slips around, facelocks and cravats.

Satnam TOSSES Rosario aside, having made quick work of the mere mortal. Sonjay Dutt gets in the ring with a mic to say, “Hey hey hey hey hey!

Satnam just squashed Grillo in record time, and Lethal is so impressed that not only will he beat his opponent tonight, but he and Sonjay have a little side bet that Lethal can do it even faster than what Satnam just did. Satnam chuckles and Lethal says he’s done waiting! Bring that poor shmuck out here! Did Lethal not read the match card? Lethal’s up against THE BASTARD!!

Fans fire up as Pac makes his entrance out here. Pac already said he was in a bad mood on Dynamite, and surely Lethal taking him lightly isn’t helping things. Will Pac make sure Sonjay wins that side bet with Lethal?

Winner: Pac, by submission

Pac makes Lethal suffer a few seconds longer before letting go. That’s what Lethal gets for calling The Bastard a shmuck! Pac is going to be in the Men’s Owen Hart Tournament, will he win it all to go All In for the AEW World Championship?


My Thoughts:

A great Rampage here, even with an extra squash match for the fun of it. Cage of Agony are definitely rolling, not sure they’ll be going for the trios titles while a Heel faction like Bang Bang Gang has them, but Cage, Kaun & Liona would definitely be a tough challenge for them. And I really liked that they segued from Satnam’s squash win to Lethal’s great main event with Pac. Great win for Pac to build momentum towards the Owen Hart Cup, I do like the possibility of Pac being in the main event of All In. Whether Pac is facing Ospreay or Swerve for the world title, he’ll give us great promos in the build and an awesome match in Wembley.

Great match from Rocky and Shota, and a great win for Shota. There might be something in the works for Forbidden Door, but I don’t see Shota getting in on title stories in AEW. Really good promo from Deonna and Rosa, and their No DQ match is going to be awesome stuff. That match can really go either way, but something tells me that Deonna wins. As it stands, we’ve got two Face champions in the Women’s Division, and that won’t change after Forbidden Door, so Deonna is a very strong Heel to go after Storm or Mone. And speaking of, great opener out of Storm VS Windsor, which I clearly thought was gonna be the main event but oh well. Still a good showing for Windsor and a good win for Storm, and Storm has momentum going to Forbidden Door, though she surely isn’t losing.

My Score: 8.7/10
