AEW World Championship Eliminator: MJF VS Adam Cole!

Maxwell Jacob Friedman swore no one was on the level of the Devil, but then the Undisputed One stepped forward! But of course, Adam Cole can’t just cut the line without earning that right. Will Cole beat MJF here to get a title match down the line? Or will MJF cross off the very last threat to his reign of terror?

The bell rings and fans are already fired up. Cole gets fired up and the fans get even more fired up! Cole and MJF get face to face, talk some trash, and then the two back up. They circle, tie up, and MJF headlocks. Cole powers out, MJF runs him over, and MJF mocks the BAYBAY pose. MJF runs, but Cole hurdles. MJF ducks, dodges, then stops to strut. Fans boo as MJF swivels his hips, but Cole runs in! MJF dodges, things keep moving, and Cole ducks while MJF hurdles. But MJF then narrowly avoids the superkick! Cole winds it up, “ADAM COLE BAYBAY!” MJF bails out of the ring as he scowls.

Fans fire up as MJF paces. MJF goes over the railing? And he grabs someone’s popcorn to throw it all around! DC boos MJF and even flips him off, but MJF gives it back. He slaps one guy’s hat off his head! MJF goes back to ringside, soaks up all the heat, and he goes up the steel steps. MJF steps in while fans tell him off. Cole smirks but MJF just shrugs it off. They tie up, then MJF claims hair pulling! Fans boo, MJF is just copying Sheiky Baby. MJF and Cole tie up again, then MJF pulls Cole’s hair! The ref counts, MJF lets off, and he throat chops! MJF stomps Cole down! MJF then drags Cole up to wrench and WRING into the corner!

Fans boo but MJF soaks it up while standing on the corner. MJF goes back to Cole, tells Cole he’s just a loser lie all the fans, but Cole YANKS MJF into buckles! MJF wants mercy but he gets stomps instead! Cole then stands MJF up, climbs up, and he rains down fists! The fans count along, Cole goes all the way to ten! “ADAM COLE, BAYBAY!” Cole wrenches, whips, but MJF blocks to jam Cole’s arm! MJF runs in but Cole TOSSES him up and out! Cole shakes out the bad arm, then runs in, but gets caught int he apron skirt! MJF CLUBS away, pulls hair, and lets off as the ref reprimands. MJF brings Cole over to SMACK the arm off steel steps!

Fans boo but MJF threatens to smack them. Then MJF CLAWS Cole’s back! MJF gets Cole’s arm again, and he stands on it on the steps! Then he stomps the fingers! Cole crawls away into the ring but MJF just soaks up the heat again. MJF drags Cole back up, wraps the arm into a top wristlock, and he leans on the hold. Cole endures and fans rally up. Cole fights up to throw body shots! Cole gets free, but MJF throws him down by his hair! The ref reprimands and MJF “apologizes” before he taunts fans. MJF goes to Cole, gets the bad arm and he SLAMS it on the mat! MJF then has Cole in a mounted armbar and makes gestures with Cole’s arm.

MJF HIP DROPS the bad arm! Cole goes to a corner, MJF storms up and he snapmares Cole to then gets the arm for another top wristlock. Cole endures, even as MJF leans on the hold. Fans rally, Cole fights up, and he throws more body shots! Cole is free again, runs in, but MJF spins him around to WRING the arm again! Cole writhes but MJF drags him up by the bad arm. Cole kicks, but MJF ducks to pump handle, MADE IN LONG ISLAND! Cover, TWO!! Cole survives the driver but MJF huffs and puffs. Fans rally and duel, and MJF mocks the Adam Cole fans. MJF then mocks HBK to rub in Cole’s NXT past.

MJF goes to the corner to soak up more heat, and then he tunes up the band! Fans boo, MJF runs in, but into a SUPERKICK! Cole goes to a corner now while MJF has blood in his mouth! MJF shakes out the stars and he realizes what just happened to his own mouth. MJF is mad, he runs in, but into an elbow! And a BOOT! Cole rallies with big clotheslines and elbows, and then a BOOT! Fans are thunderous for Cole and he brings MJF up in a waistlock. MJF switches but Cole PELES! And BACKSTABBERS! Cover, TWO! MJF is still in this but Cole goes to a corner. DC is dueling as Cole climbs up the corner.

MJF rises, Cole leaps, PANAMA- NO, MJF blocks to put Cole on the apron! Cole swings, MJF blocks and MJF HOTSHOTS the arm! MJF then drags Cole in through the ropes, HEAT- NO, Cole tosses MJF away! Cole hurries in, runs, but MJF ducks the Boom! And he goes for the arm! Cole rolls, MJF YANKS the arm, underhooks and SHOULDER BUSTER! And then suplex, but Cole reverses to hit GHOSTBUSTER!

Cole catches MJF to a fireman’s carry! USHIGOROSHI!! Cover, TWO!! Cole shakes out that leg while MJF goes to the apron. Cole crawls his way over, fans continue to duel and Cole manages to stand on the apron. Cole drags MJF up, waistlocks, but MJF fights the lift! MJF then gut wrenches, but Cole kicks his way out of the driver! MJF is dazed, Cole goes up the corner! But MJF THROAT CHOPS! And then gut wrenches! APRON TOMBSTONE!!! Double-edged for MJF’s knees now, and both men flop to the floor! The fans are losing their minds as Dynamite goes picture in picture!

The ref checks both men, and somehow they’re both okay to continue. But they’re both down for a long time so the ref double checks. Is MJF really okay to continue with that leg? MJF stands, hobbles over, proving he is. MJF puts Cole back in the ring, hurries to cover, TWO!! Cole is still in this and MJF is frustrated. MJF gets that bad arm, and DOUBLE STOMPS it! Cole writhes and then crawls to the corner. MJF storms up on Cole, wraps the bad arm around ropes, and pulls! The ref counts, MJF lets off, and MJF glares at all the fans. DC rally up, but MJF goes back to Cole to dig his boot in. The ref counts and MJF lets off at 4.

Cole sputters against ropes while Dynamite returns to single picture. MJF paces, he stalks Cole as he crawls to center, and MJF says, “You’re a nobody, Cole!” Cole throws a forearm, but there’s nothing behind it. MJF grins and kicks at Cole. Then MJF SPITS on Cole! MJF tells Cole he sucks, but Cole ROCKS MJF with a forearm! MJF CHOPS Cole in return! Cole ROCKS MJF again! MJF snarls and CHOPS! Cole wobbles, but he ROCKS MJF again! MJF CHOPS!

But fans rally for Cole! MJF tells them to shut up but Cole crawls, only for MJF to get that arm! RINGS OF SATURN! But Cole gets the ROPEBREAK!! MJF is furious but he lets go reluctantly. “This is Awesome!” as Cole and MJF are down. Cole crawls to the apron, MJF drags him in through the ropes, HEAT- NO, Cole denies MJF again! But MJF KNEES Cole! HEATSEEKER!! Cover, TWO!!! Cole survives as we pass 20 minutes!

MJF rises while Cole is still down. The ref checks Cole while MJF bails out of the ring. MJF goes around the outside, and he grabs his belt. He puts that aside as he clears off the timekeeper’s table! MJF then drags Cole out of the ring to bring him over, and he puts Cole on the table! Fans cheer and jeer as MJF goes to the corner and climbs! MJF has done this once before, also against Danielson, and he’s going for it now! MACHO ELBOW through the table!!! Direct hit on Cole and fans lose their minds all over again! The ref checks both men in the wreckage while fans cheer for “A E DUB! A E DUB!” for making this the opener!

MJF sits up first, and he manages to stand. MJF tells the ref to count while he gets in the ring. The ref starts the ring count, and Cole starts to stir. The count reaches 5 of 10 while Cole does his best to sit up. The medic, Doc Sampson, is checking on Cole, is he even okay to continue? The count is 8 of 10, fans are going nuts as Cole is on his feet! Cole slides in at 9.9!! MJF is shocked! He thought he had this but Cole survives by nanoseconds! Fans hope they “Fight Forever!” but this has to end somehow! MJF paces, he brings Cole back to the apron, but Cole pushes him away to SUPERKICK! MJF leans against ropes!

Cole reels MJF in with a waistlock, APRON GERMAN SUPLEX!! The ref checks MJF again while Cole gets back in the ring. MJF stirs, fans rally up, and MJF gets himself back into the ring. Cole is still slow to stand up, but he goes to a corner. MJF crawls after him but Cole goes up! PANAMA- NO, MJF just flops over! Fans boo as MJF crawls to the far corner. Cole hops down, hurries over, but MJF kick shim low! MJF goes up to DOUBLE STMOP the bad arm! MJF tells the ref that this should’ve ended with the ring count! Cole runs up to O’Conner Roll! TWO!! And into the REF! Fans freak out but MJF sees an opening!

MJF hurries out, grabs the belt, and he hurries back over! MJF watches and the ref is still down. MJF throws the belt to Cole, flips him off, and pulls a Guerrero! The ref flounders around, but Cole smirks. So much for MJF’s trick! And now Cole has a weapon! Fans tell MJF he effed up! BELT SHOT!!! Cole throws the belt out, then brings the kneepad down! MJF sits up, into the BOOM!! Cover, TWO?!?! The ref couldn’t count fast enough cuz of the damage he took earlier! Fans are going nuts and Cole can’t believe MJF’s luck. Cole stands back up, he brings MJF back up, and he reloads. But MJF flops down before the Boom!

The ref checks MJF but Cole storms up behind him. Cole drags MJF up but MJF grabs at the ref! LOW BLOW MULE KICK!! MJF gest away with one and fans boo! MJF then crawls to a corner, and he brings out the Dynamite Diamond Ring!! MJF grins as he puts the ring on his pinkie, hides it behind his back, and runs in, but the ref STOPS MJF! The ref was doing it so Cole could steady himself, but now he exposes the trick! And Cole SUPERKICKS MJF!! The ref takes the ring, Cole goes up the corner! PANAMA SUNRISE!!! But that’s not all! HERE COMES THE BOOM!! Cover, the bell rings?!? TIME LIMIT DRAW?!?!

Fans can’t believe it! The 30 minutes are UP, so MJF is literally saved by the bell!! But what happens if an Eliminator is a draw? Cole grabs a mic while fans call BS! Cole tells MJF, “Five. More. Minutes.” Fans love that idea! Cole throws the mic to MJF for him to respond, but MJF just stares Cole down, belt between them. MJF then grabs the belt and slithers away. Fans boo but what else should we expect from The Devil of AEW? Will Tony Khan have to handle this one?


CM Punk speaks.

The Second City Savior says the only thing certain about him right now is that nothing is certain. He’s worked hard to get back to AEW, and he’s coming back for the same reason he first showed up. He has scores to settle and things still to do in his career. “Saturday, the 17th of June, Collision, the United Center. I won’t know what I’m gonna do or say until I have that microphone in hand. I have a lot of things to get off my chest.” Is this going to be the Pipebomb 2023?


Renee Paquette is in the ring.

And she welcomes out Sammy Guevara. Fans cheer the Spanish God as he makes his way out for the first time since Double or Nothing. The father-to-be joins Renee in the ring, and Renee notes we haven’t seen him since he was so close to becoming new AEW World Champion. That was also the same night he and wife Tay Melo announced the pregnancy, so congratulations on that. Sammy has a lot to think about, so where is his mind at? Sammy says it has been a hell of a ride these past couple months. The highest of highest, such as Tay being pregnant, which if you didn’t know, they’re having a girl!

And then there are the lowest of lows, like coming this close to becoming world champion and falling short. But the goal is always the same. And now it’ll be that much better! He’ll have his wife by his side, their baby girl in one arm, and the AEW World Championship in the other! But before that happens, Sammy has to make some tough decisions and some changes. But wait, here comes Darby Allin! A fellow Young Pillar, another man who was close to winning at Double or Nothing, now joins Sammy in the ring. Darby has his own mic to tell Sammy, “I mean this when I say it. Congratulations on the baby girl.”

But that’s not what this is about. Darby wants to talk Double or Nothing. He isn’t demanding a rematch, he lost that night, too. He wants to start from the bottom. But let’s talk about Sammy for a minute. From the sounds of it, the people are starting to love Sammy again. Fans cheer, but Darby has to ask, though. Is Sammy gonna stand on his own two feet? Or stand in the shadow of the Jericho Appreciation Society? Darby’s said it before and he’ll say it again: the biggest difference between Sammy & Jericho versus Darby & Sting, is that Darby and Sting are equals. There’s no Sting Appreciation Society.

So look, Sammy. He doesn’t have to answer now, but Darby has an idea. But wait! Here comes Chris Jericho! The fans sing along with Judas while The Wizard glares at the ring. Jericho goes down the ramp with a lot of pyro going off and Floyd the Baseball Bat in hand. Jericho has the song stop early and fans boo. Darby, you stand there and shut your mouth, and mind your own business! Don’t laugh at him, kid! Jericho then looks to Sammy and says it’s just them now. Jericho’s been meaning to ask Sammy. The whole three months of chasing MJF for the championship, he never called Jericho once! Never asked him to help once!

Y’know, Sammy’s mentor? The guy who brought you into AEW and made you a star? If you’d asked for Jericho’s help, Sammy would be here as THE AEW World Champion! Sammy says that’s funny, because he was thinking, why didn’t Jericho call Sammy? Cuz if Jericho did, then Jericho wouldn’t have lost to Adam Cole. Twice. Jericho laughs that off, and says Sammy must be having delusions of grandeur from his brush with the main event scene. Jericho will give Sammy the chance to apologize to him right now. Fans chant “NO! NO! NO!” and Sammy says he ain’t apologizing for s*it!!

Fans fire up for Sammy and Jericho says Sammy needs to remember the dynamic in the JAS. Maybe Sammy needs to remember the hierarchy. Maybe they need to reunite Le Sex Gods in a tag match next week so Sammy can remember who his boss is! Oh, a match? Darby says Jericho calls himself a wizard, but when he gets in the ring, the magic is gone. Jericho smirks at Darby, and asks if Darby wants this, “you morose mutant.” You wanna challenge Jericho by yourself? Maybe he and Sammy should beat the hell outta Darby 2v1?! Darby says he’s not really alone. Because here comes STIIIING!

Fans go wild as The Icon and HIS bat make their way out! Fans fire up as Sting gets in the ring with Jericho and the rest. Fans fire up as two legends stare down and circle. Jericho aims his bat at Sting’s neck. Sting smirks and pushes Jericho’s bat away, to aim his own! Jericho gets loose, clinks bats, but then Sting smacks back! Will Sammy have no choice but to fall in line behind The Ocho? Or will he do as Darby thinks and be his own man?


AEW hears from Sanada!

The IWGP World Heavyweight Champion introduces himself. “On June 25th, I plan to show the world the strength of an IWGP Champion. At Forbidden Door, I will hold an Open Challenge for this IWGP World Heavyweight Champion. I look forward to seeing who steps up to my challenge. AEW roster, I’m waiting for your answer. See you next time.” Who will dare step through the Forbidden Door to face The Cold Skull?

Swerve drags Darby up in a fishhook but the ref counts. Swerve lets off, then gets an arm. Swerve CLUBS away on Darby, smothers him into the mat, and Dynamite returns to single picture. Fans rally, Swerve grinds the arm, but Darby endures. Swerve fishhooks but the ref reprimands again. Swerve lets off, grinds the arm, but Darby reaches out.

The eclectic quartet comes out on top! Garcia doesn’t seem impressed. Is the Dragonslayer looking to go after the AEW International Championship while also aiming for the ROH Pure Championship?


Backstage interview with The Gunns.

Renee is with Austin & Colten and brings up them helping out Jay White against Ricky Starks. Just what is the relationship they have with The Switchblade? Austin says they have no idea what she’s talking about. But Colten says what they do know is that they were raised to be polite gentlemen. That’s why they don’t talk bad about anyone. They’ll talk about something that matters: Them! They’re the best tag team in AEW, and the best brother tag team in AEW. There is one team they have their eyes on, and those brothers get extreme. BLAM BLAM! That team has had their time, run their course, they’re washed up, it’s enough.

So that is why next week, in Chicago, on Dynamite, the Gunns challenge The Hardys to prove who is truly the best brother tag team today. And Renee, do something with your hair. Yikes. The Ass Boys are calling out the Hardy Boyz, but will Jeff & Matt take Austin & Colten to those extremes?


AEW TNT Championship: Wardlow w/ Arn Anderson VS Jake Hager!

The Maestro of Mayhem knows Christian Cage & Luchasaurus will be back for more, and he’s ready to give it to them. But first, he looks to defend this title against another familiar foe in the JAS’s Big Hurt! Will Wardlow get hurt before settling things with Captain Charisma? Or will he be composing yet another Powerbomb Symphony?

But wait! Hager attacks Wardlow during his entrance! Hager throws hands, CLOBBERS Wardlow to ringside, and then POSTS him! Fans boo as Hager gets Wardlow in the ring. The bell rings, Hager fires off body shots in the corner! Fans chant for “WARD~LOW!” while the ref counts. Hager stops at 4, but then starts up the body shots again! The ref counts again, Hager lets off to soak up the heat, and then he goes back to whip corner to corner. Wardlow comes back to CLOBBER Hager! And again! And then Wardlow gets around to GERMAN SUPLEX! Fans fire up with Wardlow as he sees Hager go to a corner.

Wardlow runs in to RAM Hager, and then whips him corner to corner. Hager reverses, runs in, but Wardlow TOSSES Hager up and out! Hard landing for Hager but Wardlow is feeling good! Wardlow goes out, fans rally up and he runs in to CLOBBER Hager! DC is fired up as Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Wardlow drags Hager up, POSTS him in return, and then has him against railing. Wardlow brings Hager around, CLUBS him and puts him in the ring. Hager box jumps to the apron and fans cheer. Wardlow then runs in to clothesline Hager in the corner! Wardlow whips corner to corner hard and Hager bounces off buckles. Wardlow stomps Hager, jams a knee into Hager’s back, and then covers. TWO, but Wardlow keeps his cool. Hager goes to a corner, Wardlow RAMS into him! And again! Wardlow brings Hager around to suplex, and TOSS! Hager writhes but fans cheer as Wardlow flexes.

Wardlow goes after Hager in a corner and stomps away! The ref counts, Wardlow lets off, then he runs back in, but Hager dodges! Wardlow POSTS himself! Hager brings Wardlow in to fire haymakers, and then RAMS into him again and again! Hager wraps a leg around ropes and pulls on it! The ref counts, and Hager kicks the ropes to jam Wardlow’s leg! Hager then gets that leg for an ANKLE LOCK! Wardlow endures, reaches out, crawls forward, and Dynamite returns to single picture. Wardlow rolls, kicks at Hager, but Hager turns him back over for the ANKLE LOCK! Wardlow rolls again, and gives more kicks!

Wardlow kicks Hager away, Hager comes back, but into a SPINEBUSTER! Wardlow hobbles but he fires up, and the fans are with him! Wardlow drags Hager up, reels him in, and fans fire up, only for Matthew Menard & Angelo Parker to appear! That distraction allows Hager to CHOP BLOCK Wardlow! Arn tells Menard & Parker to stay back, and they tell him to do something about it. Arn’s got the “Glock!” Or rather, BROCK! Brock Anderson rushes out to fire off on Parker, and then Arn DECKS Menard! Father and son run Menard & Parker off, but Hager stalks Wardlow. SPINEBUSTER! Cover, ONE??!!

Hager is shocked but he goes to the far corner. Wardlow is in the drop zone, Hager runs in, HAGER BOMB into boots! Hager staggers, Wardlow clotheslines him up and out of the ring! And then PLANCHAS?! Direct hit and Wardlow lands on his feet! Wardlow gets Hager in, goes up a corner, and SWANTON BOMBS!! Fans fire up and Wardlow brings down the straps! Wardlow drags Hager up, for the POWERBOMB! But that’s just the first! Second verse, same as the first, a POWERBOMB!! Cover, Wardlow wins!

Winner: Wardlow, by pinfall (still AEW TNT Champion)

The TNT title is still in Wardlow’s World, but Christian & Luchasaurus are on the tron! The audio isn’t working so Christian’s message is having no effect. Wardlow says Christian is all talk anyway. The sound finally kicks in and Christian says everyone knows he should be TNT Champion! A few weeks ago on Dynamite, Wardlow threw the challenge to Luchasaurus. So they’re here to say Luchasaurus accepts! It’ll be the debut of AEW Collision in Chicago! But the question for Wardlow is… “What’s gonna happen when your new daddy isn’t there to save you next time?” Luchasaurus drags a bloodied Arn on screen!

Wardlow runs to the back but we don’t even know where this is in the arena! Will Captain Charisma sink to new lows in order for his Right Hand of Destruction to take the title?


AEW hears from Hiroshi Tanahashi!

“It’s NJPW’s Master of the Century, Hiroshi Tanahashi. MJF, as long as you’re champion, that belt won’t shine like it should. Last year at Forbidden Door, I came this close to beating Moxley for the AEW title. So this year at Forbidden Door, MJF, face me one on one!” The Ace just called out the Devil, what will be his response? Speaking of…

Backstage interview with MJF.

Renee finds him in the trainer’s room getting checked out. She commends him on the great match tonight, and brings up Tanahashi’s challenge just now. It has already been made official, Forbidden Door will see MJF VS Tanahashi for the AEW World Championship. Wait, come again? Not about Tanahashi, but the rest. He then cuts Renee off and says the answer’s no. He doesn’t feel like giving a shot to a “rando from a rinky-dink indie fed in Japan.” As far as Tony Khan “booking” him for things, wouldn’t be the first time he no-showed something like that. So Tanahashi, PBBT. Sorry, no can do, bud. Renee, you can go now.

Renee does leave, and the medic gets back to checking MJF. Ow, ow, careful! MJF is sore, tired, and acting like a child, but will he have no choice but to go through the Forbidden Door?


Backstage interview with Orange Cassidy.

Renee is with the International Champion and says that a lot of times, we already know what his matches are going to be, who is challenging him, but we don’t have that right now. What is next for Freshly Squeezed? Yeah, y’know how this works. Right about now, someone will walk in and make a challenge. Oh hey! Zack Sabre Jr. is here! And the NJPW World Television Champion says hello to “Orange Bullocks.” Well, see, Cassidy mentioned ZSJ’s name a couple weeks ago at the media scrum, and well, ZSJ might be the first-ever NJPW World TV Champion, but next Sunday is Forbidden Door, now isn’t it?

And ZSJ very much thinks that the idea of a Double Champion is “pretty bloody marvelous.” What does Cassidy- But in walks Garcia! And he says ZSJ doesn’t even work here, okay? But yeah, a Double Champion is a great idea. Garcia was the person closest to beating Cassidy for that title, and his second belt of choice is the ROH Pure Championship. So speaking of, where’s Cassidy’s boy, Shibata, at? Uh, yeah, Shibata’s not here tonight. But he will next week. So how about, uh… ZSJ & Garcia VS Cassidy & Shibata on Dynamite? Good? See you then. Cassidy heads out, Garcia looks for a high-five from ZSJ, but ZSJ tells him to “pack it in.”

ZSJ leaves Garcia hanging, but will these two submission specialists take down the Freshly Squeezed & The Wrestler?


AEW Women’s World Championship: Toni Storm w/ Ruby Soho VS Skye Blue!

The Outcasts have started taking over AEW, but they’ve made a lot of enemies along the way. Chicago Skye was a major dark horse in Rampage’s Fatal 4 Way but she came out on top against three former women’s champions! Will Skye now join the championship club herself? Or will AEW still be on #ToniTime?

The Outcasts see Mama Blue ringside and taunt her supporting her daughter. The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see if Skye makes her mama proud here tonight!

The bell rings and Storm runs in! Skye dodges, and she fires off forearms! Fans fire up with Skye as she has Storm down! Skye CLUBS and KICKS and stomps Storm around, then CLUBS her some more! Storm goes to a corner but Skye CHOPS! And fires off more forearms! The ref counts, Skye lets off but fans fire up more. Skye runs in, but storm puts her out on the apron. Skye ROCKS Storm, then PENALTY KICKS Ruby right through the Saraya cutout she has! Skye climbs, leaps, CROSSBODY! Cover, TWO! Storm isn’t gonna be beat that easily, but Skye runs, only to miss the Shining Wizard! Storm DUMPS Skye out!

Storm runs, but Skye avoids the hip attack! Storm tumbles out, and Skye gives a HIP ATTACK of her own! Ruby checks Storm, and Mama Blue calls them the losers! Ruby scowls, helps Storm up, and Storm gets in Mama Blue’s face, and sprays her with the green face paint! Fans boo and Skye is furious! Skye DIVES out onto the Outcasts! Fans fire up and Skye hurries to get Storm up, to CLUB Storm again as Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Skye seethes, and she brings Storm around, but Storm RAMS her into the apron! Storm then TOSSES Skye into railing! Storm refreshes the ring count, runs in, and HIP ATTACKS Skye against railing! Storm flexes and soaks up the heat before taunting Mama Blue. Storm then stands on Skye and flexes. Storm drags Skye up to CHOKE her against railing! The fans boo but Storm CLUBS away on Skye! Storm puts Skye in the ring, covers, TWO! Skye is hanging tough and Mama cheers her on, but Storm stalks Skye. Storm puts Skye in the corner, to then TOSS her across the way! The ref reprimands, Storm was pulling hair there.

Storm stomps on Skye in the corner and digs her boots in. The ref counts, Storm lets off at 4, and then Storm drags Skye up. But Skye throws body shots in return! Storm CLUBS Skye back down! Storm then scoops Skye for a BACKBREAKER! Storm bends Skye against her knee but Skye endures. Ruby applauds and Storm drags Skye back up, for a SIDEWALK SLAM! Cover, TWO! Skye is still in this but Storm grows annoyed. Storm drags Skye up to snap suplex! Storm kicks Skye around, drags her up and CHOKES her on the ropes! The ref counts, Storm lets off and they argue, but Ruby SMACKS Skye with the Saraya cutout!

Ruby gets away with that cheap shot, and surely Saraya is cheering from the UK. Dynamite returns to single picture as Storm stands Skye up, but Skye throws forearms! Fans fire up as Skye fires off on Storm! Skye whips, Storm reverses and scoops, but Skye tilt-o-whirls to RANA! And then SHINING WIZARD against ropes! Snapmare, SUPER- NO, Storm blocks that, but Skye spins through to BASEMENT ROUNDHOUSE! Storm goes to ropes, fans fire up as Skye runs in, but Storm sends her right into ropes! The ref reprimands while Skye flops out of the ring. The ref has Ruby stay back but Storm goes out to fetch Skye.

Ruby and Storm hug but fans boo. Storm drags Skye up, puts her in the ring, and then Ruby slips Storm the spray paint! The ref counts, Storm gets on the apron but so does Ruby. The ref stops Ruby, but this allows Storm to get in with the paint. Storm storms up on Skye, but wait! Skye has her own BLUE spray paint!! She gets Storm right in the face! SUPERKICK!! And then Storm swings on Ruby! Ruby runs away, Skye runs at Storm and hops on, CODE BLUE!! Cover, but Ruby distracts!! Skye should’ve won twice over by now!! Skye gets up to SUPERKICK Ruby! Skye runs at Storm, but into a HOTSHOT!

STORM ZERO!! Cover, TWO?!?! Skye survives and Storm is furious!! The fans are thunderous as Storm gets the legs, TEXAS CLOVERLEAF!!! Storms its on it deep, and Skye TAPS! Storm wins!

Winner: Toni Storm, by submission (still AEW Women’s World Champion)

Skye almost beat Storm at her own game, but Skye forgot that Storm never rolls alone! And now, Ruby thrashes Skye! The Outcasts mug Skye to make her pay for being such a tough fight! But wait, here comes WILLOW NIGHTINGALE! Another woman the Outcasts have pissed off is here! Willow runs Storm & Ruby off and helps Skye up. Will the NJPW Strong Women’s Champion put the bullies in their place?


Backstage interview with #JungleHook.

Renee is with Jack Perry and the FTW Champion and notes they had a hell of a match last week in that Texas Tornado Tag. How are they feeling? Jack says they’re hyped! The Summer of JungleHook is in full swing. And to be honest, JB is feeling naked next to Hook without a belt of his own. JB said he was gonna get a title this year, so right now, he is officially accepting that Open Challenge for Sanada’s IWGP World Heavyweight Championship! Hook’s reaction? JB has him hold on, because he has been meaning to talk about this with him. After JB wins, they can go back to being a tag team.

As such, Hook isn’t just a tag team partner, he’s JB’s best friend. It’d mean the world to JB if Hook would be in his corner at Forbidden Door. JB offers the fist bump, and Hook returns it. That’s a yes! Will the Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil and Tarzan Life look to become a two man power trip?


AEW hears from Bullet Club Gold and FTR

Juice Robinson says, “On a historic Saturday, the first ever Collision, in the first ever main event, you better believe it involves Bullet Club Gold.” Jay White adds, “And FTR, who is the partner that you’re bringing with you to Chicago?” Dax Harwood says it’s “one of the best professional wrestlers to ever step foot in a wrestling ring, CM Punk, he returns. The debut of Collision, Six Man Tag with our best friend.” White says Punk has been around, he’s been in a lot of different locker rooms, but he’s never been in a match with Rock Hard Juice Robinson and King Switch Jay White! The Bang Bang Gang and who is their partner? SAMOA! JOE!!

White says that this homecoming isn’t going to be how Punk dreamed it would be. This ends with guns up. Cash Wheeler says that Samoa Joe, Jay White & Juice Robinson, at Collision’s debut show, “it’s clobbering time.” #TopGuysOut. Just how big of a collision will this premiere main event be?

BANG, V-TRIGGER for Konosuke!!

BUT WILL OSPREAY IS HERE?! HOOK KICK for Omega!! The Commonwealth Kingpin gets a shot in, reminding Omega that their IWGP United States Championship match is set for Forbidden Door! Fans are losing their minds as Ospreay stares Omega down. Ospreay points at the scar on his eyebrow! This is for WrestleKingdom! HIDDEN BLADE!! Bryan says Ospreay is now his choice for that title match. But wait, Ospreay isn’t done! Underhooks, Canadian Rack, STORMBREAKER!! Callis applauds, mostly because of his grudge against Omega. Wait, Ospreay still isn’t done! One more HIDDEN BLADE!!!

The United Empire’s leader has fired the first shot, and several more shots, and Bryan gives that a standing ovation. Will the IWGP US Championship return to NJPW with Ospreay?

My Thoughts:

A great Dynamite here that not only set up a lot more for Collision but also more for Forbidden Door. For Collision, good promo from Punk walking the streets of Chicago, and really good promo from Bullet Club Gold and FTR. I’m surprised there wasn’t anything from Samoa Joe, but maybe he’ll have something to say on ROH or Rampage this week. And great to see that Miro and Andrade are each going to be in action right from the start on Collision. Maybe Andrade rejoins LFI so that they can get in on the Trios Division and have a program with The House of Black.

Great TNT Championship match from Wardlow and Hager, and awesome showing from Skye Blue in a loss to Storm in the Women’s World Championship match. AEW really nailing things with Christian’s tron promo #sarcasm. But I guess Luchasaurus was lying in wait as Arn & Brock chased off Menard & Parker for Luchasaurus to get at Arn. Wardlow VS Luchasaurus for the TNT title on Collision is going to be big stuff, but I feel like Luchasaurus winning would make it all matter. Willow with the save was a nice touch, as we never got the big team match of Outcasts VS everyone else. Willow & Skye VS Storm & Ruby will be good, and is probably the bare minimum one women’s division match Tony gives Collision.

We got just an awesome opener out of Cole and MJF, and I actually really like the time limit draw. It isn’t a loss so Cole isn’t “eliminated” from the running, but MJF doesn’t really lose, so they can circle back to those two at All In or All Out. I like that the NJPW stars are being the proactive ones in setting up Forbidden Door matches, but of course MJF thinks he can just say no to Tanahashi when he’s not the boss. There’s one more week before Forbidden Door, so I fully expect Tony Khan telling MJF he either faces Tanahashi or his title reign is terminated. And good promo from Jungle Boy to accept Sanada’s challenge while also telling Hook they’re sticking together. I don’t know how long that really lasts, it still feels like JB could turn on Hook to go after the FTW title.

Good promo from The Gunns to call out the Hardys but I feel like they’re losing. Though maybe Starks helps out as revenge on The Gunns? Not sure the point of Gunns going after Starks but the booking for Starks has been really weird, and is starting to feel like poor excuses for keeping him away from pretty much all the titles. And great promo from Sammy, Darby and Jericho, as well as Sting and Jericho going bat to bat. I’m thinking Le Sex Gods VS Relentless Icons is going to be the moment Sammy stands up for himself against Jericho, or perhaps even just ditches Jericho, and finally breaks away from Jericho and factions.

Awesome 8 Man Tag tonight, even if throwing Keith Lee back into things was rather hasty. I suppose the Faces winning was the right move, as it gives Cassidy momentum going into Forbidden Door. I love that ZSJ isn’t satisfied just feuding with Samoa Joe as TV Champion VS TV Champion, and neither is Garcia with again becoming ROH Pure Champion. ZSJ & Garcia VS Cassidy & Shibata is going to be awesome stuff as like an appetizer for Forbidden Door. I can’t be sure who wins that, but I’m leaning towards the Faces. Shibata will have momentum going into a match with Garcia, and Cassidy will keep surviving despite being so beat up.

And of course, awesome stuff out of Elite VS BCC in that Six Man Tag. Great win for Hangman & The Bucks, and then just great chaos following that. Eddie Kingston is back, maybe continuing his feud with Claudio for the ROH World Championship, and great continuity that Eddie and Moxley being friends could not bring themselves to throw hands. And then of course Konosuke gets in there to go after pretty much anyone that isn’t BCC, even though he isn’t officially in BCC either.

Omega returning was also great, and then Ospreay showing up outta nowhere was also great. But wow, he sure piled on the damage on Omega. Ospreay may stand tall here, but I feel like that doesn’t make the go-home math in Omega’s favor. I still think because of the BCC and Callis, Omega is going to lose the title so Ospreay can defend it in NJPW events. And with NJPW’s G1 Climax coming up in July and August, there wouldn’t be any other opportunity for someone to take the US title off Omega, so at least Ospreay would be carrying that belt around and adding days to his reign during the tournament.

My Score: 8.8/10

“Look, guys, I know we gotta do this cold open thing. It’s the cool thing to do on Collision. I don’t have time. I gotta go get ready, I’m 0-1 in this tournament already, I do NOT wanna go 0-2. Bryan, I do respect you, sort of, so I don’t care about your eye, I don’t care about your arm, I don’t care about anything about you. All I care about is winning. So guess what? I’m gonna bust you up.”


AEW Continental Classic, Blue League: Claudio Castagnoli VS Brody King!

Fans fire up more and Claudio drags Brody up. Claudio whips Brody hard into railing, but Brody comes back to CLOBBER Claudio! Fans fire up as Brody peels the bumpers off the railing, then he throws forearms with Claudio. Brody knees low, whips, and Claudio hits railing hard! Claudio tumbles up and over and Collision goes picture in picture.

Brody catches his breath, storms over to where Claudio is, and drags him up. Fans fire up as Brody suplexes Claudio to the floor! Both men writhe, but Brody storms up on Claudio to stand him up. Brody CHOPS and Claudio sputters! Brody CHOPS again! Claudio staggers back, Brody whips him hard into the apron! Brody CLUBS Claudio, stalks him as he hobbles, then POSTS Claudio! Claudio staggers and falls over, and Brody refreshes the ring count. Brody storms back up on Claudio, ROCKS him, then puts him in the ring. Brody CHOPS Claudio again, ROCKS him to a corner, then ROCKS him again.

Claudio goes to another corner but Brody CLUBS him! And CHOPS him! Claudio UPPERCUTS! Brody CHOPS! Repeat! Brody gets the edge as he ROCKS Claudio again, then CHOPS him down! Claudio leans against ropes as he coughs and gasps for air. Brody clamps on with a chinlock, digs his forearm cast into Claudio’s face, and Collision returns to single picture. Claudio endures, pries the hold open, and he stands to wrench the arm, for an ELBOW BREAKER! The forearms fly again, Claudio runs but Brody scoops to SLAM! And then SENTON! Fans rally up while Claudio crawls to a corner.

That deadly right arm brings down the Swiss Superman, and Brody has six points! Is the Blue League soon going to belong to the House of Black?


Jon Moxley speaks.

“If it turns out that entering this Continental Classic tournament was a bad idea, I won’t find out ’til it’s too late. I’m banged up. Maybe the last four years is finally catching with me, because nobody’s done it anywhere in the world like I do it the last four years. My head hurts, my neck hurts, my back hurts, now my knee hurts. Getting that tingly-ness in my fingers now all the time. I live in pain on a day to day basis like most people couldn’t even imagine. Now on top of that, my head’s not screwed on straight all the time lately. The doctors are prescribing me this medication, that medication.

“And I’m just sick of it all. I’m sick and tired of being sick and tired. I’m sick and tired of being pissed off at my body failing me, I’m sick and tired of being depressed, I’m being sick and tired about being pissed about the entire last year. I’m sick and tired of being pissed off. So I’m gonna do the only thing I know how to do, the only thing I’m good at: I’m gonna wrestle my way out of it. I’m gonna fight my way out of it. I’m gonna put every ounce, every drop of sweat and effort and will I have into winning this Continental Classic tournament.

“This kind of thing, this is what AEW was built on, man. Two guys in the ring, the best wrestlers in the world, giving it their all, feeling that feeling when you’ve given every ounce of yourself in the ring, and pushing the limits, and pushing the boundaries, and making people stand up and go ‘Oh my God!’ What’d I just see?’ Feeling that connection with an audience that loves wrestling as much as we do. That is what AEW is about. Somebody’s gotta step up and win this tournament, and show the world exactly what AEW is, exactly what All Elite Wrestling can be! And that’s just gonna have to be me.

“Because anybody can say what they want but I’m the Ace of the World, b*tch, and that’s just the way it is. And there is nobody in this tournament that can do anything to me worse than what I deal with on a daily basis. Nothing they can do to me that’s worse than fighting the demons that I fight on a daily basis. If you think I’m shot, if you think my trigger’s been pulled, if you think I’m ripe for the picking, please, please, take your shot.” The Maniac is going to go until he can’t go any more, will El Toro Blanco look to take that shot this Wednesday?


Abadon VS Kiera Hogan!

With title chases never stopping, the Undead Girl and the Hottest Flame are fighting to get ahead. Who wins here to move up in the rankings towards the champions of AEW?

The bell rings, Kiera is wary of Abadon, and the two circle. Abadon corners Kiera, run sin, but Kiera dodges. Kiera SHOTGUNS Abadon down and fans fire up!

Backsatge interview with Samoa Joe.

Alex Marvez says the last time we saw Joe, he was furious that MJF accepted a tag team challenge from “The Devil of AEW.” Joe says why wouldn’t he be? But then someone shouts “SAMOA JOOOE~!” In rolls Roderick Strong & The Kingdom. Roddy tells Joe that Roddy is willing to forgive Joe for trying to end his career with a broken neck not just once but twice. And he knows Joe has his world title match with Max, but c’mon, this is clearly a trap! MJF is the Devil! But hey, Roddy’s best friend “ADAAAM~!” likes Joe and thinks of him as a friend. So as Adam Cole’s best friend, that makes Roddy a friend to Joe.

So hey, Wednesday, it’s a set-up. Those goons will beat the crap out of Joe! And MJF isn’t even here right now! He’s probably plotting how they’re gonna do it! The Kingdom says yeah, Roddy’s right. So just listen to him, okay? Joe chuckles and leaves. Does Joe think they’re joking? Between Joe and “The Devil,” who will have the last laugh on Dynamite?


AEW Continental Classic, Blue League: Andrade El Idolo VS Daniel Garcia!

We saw this showdown before when CJ Perry was recruiting clients, and we saw which way that went. But then will history repeat itself? Or will Red Death ruin Andrade’s start in the Blue League?

Andrade’s first tournament match is his first win! Garcia is 0-2, Menard says this is a hole they’ll have to dig out of. Andrade still shows Garcia respect, but is Garcia going to be mathematically eliminated before long?


Willie Mack speaks.

“See, Wardlow, I know you’ve been going through a lot of things these past few weeks, putting your hands on people. But one thing you know about me is you don’t put your hands on my friends. Y’see, this is a person who I’ve tagged with and won multiple tag team championships in other promotions with. So what I’ma have to do, is I’ma have to reach out and touch you. So next week, we’re gonna have to do the damn thing in the ring, so guess what? You better pack a lunch, because I’m a big boy, and I’m a big meal to try to eat.” Mack is standing up for AR Fox, but will the Return of the Mack end up Wardlow’s newest victim?


The Kingdom w/ Roderick Strong VS The Iron Savages w/ Jacked Jameson!

Backstage interview with Ethan Page.

Lexi Nair is with All Ego, who has requested this time. Ethan says that ever since losing out on the AEW World Championship to MJF, in his home country of Canada, Ethan has had to regroup and refocus. He’s gotten into the best physical shape of his life, he has been in ROH building up win after win. And so, here Ethan is to make a challenge and check off a bucket list thing. AEW is going back to Canada, and Ethan wants to be THE biggest name in Canadian wrestling. So therefore, to be the King of Canada, he needs his crown. That crown is currently on someone else’s head.

So in Montreal, 1v1, we find out who the best Canadian wrestler truly is, as Ethan calls out KENNY OMEGA! Will The Cleaner give All Ego that opportunity?


AEW hears from Willow Nightingale and Mercedes Martinez.

The Babe with the Power tells Mercedes, “our history goes further back than you probably even realize. I’ve been such a fan, and I’ve admired you so much.” The OG Badass says the first time they met, Willow “was this night little pretty Willow.” Willow says she is constantly disappointed in Mercedes’ behavior as of late, and in herself because she hasn’t been able to beat Mercedes. Mercedes asks how many times must Willow dance her way into Mercedes’ business? Isn’t Willow tired of being everyone’s hero? Next time they meet, Willow will need to be saved. Because Mercedes will dance and stomp all over her.


Malakai Black & Buddy Matthews VS Christopher Daniels & Matt Sydal!

Brody took the lead in the Blue League, and Julia has called out her next target. Will the Dark Father and Aussie Juggernaut make sure that the House Always Wins? Or will the Fallen Angel & Zen Assassin finally stake a claim in the AEW Tag Division?

Another Collision, another sweep for the Dark Father and his family. The lights go down, but why? The House is already here. But here comes FTR! Cash Wheeler & Dax Harwood storm down to the ring bathed in the magenta light! Malakai tells them that before they do anything, Malakai assumes that they’re both here because they are joining the House. Dax chuckles but Malakai says he is a family man. And we know it’s been weeks. The only people in AEW that have been here for the both of them has been The House of Black. Malakai’s done a lot of things, but not once has he told a lie.

The fans chant “HOUSE OF BLACK!” and Malakai drops the mic for FTR to take. Dax picks it up, but Buddy KNEES him down! Cash goes after Buddy but he gets mugged! Cash still throws hands, but Buddy CURB STOMPS him down! Buddy then drags Dax up, and he makes Dax watch as Malakai sets Cash up! BLACK MASS!!

Dax flips Malakai off, so he gets BLACK MASS!! Is this going to be the end for FTR in AEW once and for all?


Backstage interview with Toni Storm.

Renee Paquette is with “Timeless Toni,” bringing up last week as Storm accepting the AEW Women’s World Championship, and Storm says yes, she knows, she has no time for these prepared questions. And where is “that man who usually does my interviews? He has so much more poise.” And she isn’t even finished doing her hair because they were too busy with some blonde floosy! And yes, Storm did accept her championship last week, Renee was a dear for presenting that. But Storm was unceremoniously interrupted by Skye Blue!

Storm tells Skye that if she had any advice at all, it’d be to walk backwards! The only time anyone has anything nice to say about Skye, it’s in reference to her bottom! Is Storm supposed to be worried because Skye’s all spooky now? With that little thing on her head? Storm used to wear hats and be spooky. BOO. See? Not that hard. Interrupt her, fine. She can be first to challenge for “this little huckleberry right here.” But until then, chin up, chest out, and oh… she’s bare foot. Sorry. She takes RENEE’S shoe to throw around! Toni is timeless, but will the Storm strike down Chicago Skye?


Skye Blue speaks.

Well first, she sighs. “Toni, I have met you through every single one of your phases, but this little midlife crisis your going through is the most pathetic I have seen thus far. But you haven’t met this Skye Blue. So bring your little butler, bring your little blond bimbo, and whatever 1940s black ‘n’ white crap you got up that robe, because none of it is going to stop me from taking that championship from you. So I’m gonna have my chin up, my chest out, and I’m gonna shove your shoe right up your ass.” Strong words from a fired up challenger, will she be the new leading lady of AEW?


Christian Cage speaks.

Captain Charisma says, “I don’t think it’s any secret to anybody how far back my relationship with Adam Copeland goes. I think I more or less tolerated Adam. He was a hanger-on, he wanted to be like me, which is why he’s always tried to steal my spotlight wherever we’ve gone.” And that held Christian back. Edge got what he never got. He was pushed all the way to the bottom when they broke up as a tag team. But Christian willed himself to the top. he is here to be the best, anyone else is expendable. And Edge wants to take away everything Christian’s built up the last three years? Christian has nothing to prove to himself, but Edge has everything to prove to Christian.

This time, Christian is what everyone talks about. Whether it’s Dynamite, Rampage or Collision, Christian nis on the tip of everyone’s tongue. He is the Face of TNT, the Face of AEW, then, now and forever! Christian has always been better than Edge, and in Montreal, everyone will finally know. But will “The Patriarch” be the one in for a shock when things get Rated R on Wednesday?


El Hijo Del Vikingo VS Kip Sabian!

The AAA Mega Champion is coming off a big trios win last night on Rampage, but Mr. Superbad just thinks of him as the most overrated wrestler on the AEW roster. Will Kip put his money where his mouth is? Or will he be on the losing end of this Collision?

The bell rings, the two circle, and they feel things out. They tie up, Kip cording holds but Vikingo whips. Kip arm-drags and holds on, but Vikingo goes up and over!

Vikingo falls back, Kip flexes, and Kip drags Vikingo to a cover, TWO! Kip drags Vikingo into a mounted armlock, but Vikingo endures. Kip BITES Vikingo’s hand!

Vikingo runs in at the corner, but stops as Kip moves. Kip returns, into a scoop and torture rack! Argentine Flip KNEE STRIKE! Like an inverted GTS! Kip falls, Vikingo drags him to a drop zone and goes up the ropes from the outside. INSIDE-OUT PHOENIX SPLASH!! Cover, TWO!! Kip survives and he manages to smile about it. Vikingo drags Kip back to another drop zone, but Kip goes after Vikingo as he climbs!

Vikingo puts Kip back in, runs corner to corner, METEORA! And then Vikingo goes right up, for the 630 SENTON!!! Cover, Vikingo wins!!

Winner: El Hijo Del Vikingo, by pinfall

The AAA Mega Champion cools off Kip’s hot take, because no one who can do what Vikingo did in this match is “overrated!” But Vikingo does show Kip a sign of respect by offering a handshake. The fans cheer to shake hands, but Kip says no! Will Kip ever get over himself? Will Vikingo earn even more gold in the New Year?


Backstage interview with Keith Lee.

Lexi is with the Limitless One, and says last time, he mentioned “him.” Just who is “him?” But then in walks Shane Taylor, because he knows who “him” is! Because Keith ain’t dumb enough to look past Shane. But last year’s match didn’t solve anything, so this year, they give the people the fight they really wanna see. Keith VS Shane, 1v1, Final Battle, so Shane can beat Keith’s ass in front of the entire world! Keith thinks on that a moment. Challenge accepted. And see #TAIGASTYLE later, too. Then in two weeks, in Garland, Texas, will that truly be the Pretty Boy Killers’ Final Battle?


Backstage interview with CJ Perry.

Lexi and CJ are outside Andrade’s office, and notes that Andrade’s first win was impressive. UH OH, here comes Miro! Miro says move, CJ says no! Miro can’t go in there! She knows he thinks things will go poorly, but when Miro chose his god over her, she has to prove herself. By Andrade winning, it will help CJ. So if Miro wants to go in there, fine, he’s a grown man. But if there is any love left for CJ, do not do this. Do not lay a hand on her client. Please? Miro says if His God was still with him, he would be in this tournament and have ripped Andrade’s spine out already! Miro then caresses CJ’s face, and says he won’t touch her client. She has his word.

Miro storms off, but what will The Redeemer do to prove himself worthy of gold in the background of the Continental Classic?


AEW Continental Classic, Blue League: Bryan Danielson VS Eddie Kingston!

The American Dragon was the first entrant named to this tournament, but could not compete in it until now.

Bryan has the leg again, BRIDGING BACK SUPLEX! Cover, TWO!! Eddie escapes but Bryan says time to kick his head in!! DRAGON STOMPS!! “YES! YES! YES!” Bryan runs out of gas but somehow Eddie is still in this!

Bryan and Eddie crawl to each other, Eddie FLIPS BRYAN OFF! “This is Awesome!” as Eddie rises. Bryan aims from a corner, BUSAIKU KNEE!!! Cover, BRYAN WINS!!

Winner: Bryan Danielson, by pinfall (gains 3 points; Eddie earns 0)

THIS is the fight Bryan wanted from Eddie! But in the end, Bryan is the one to win the fight! Will Bryan keep on going through his next four fights? Eddie is technically still ROH World & NJPW Strong Openweight Champion, but with an 0-2 start, has he all but lost them both?

My Thoughts:

A great Collision, with awesome Continental Classic matches, but also matches they kayfabe’d as “standby” to try and kayfabe the tournament matches not going closer to their 20 minute time limits. A weird move to me but it’s not like we haven’t seen such a move by American televised pro-wrestling before. And surprisingly great stuff out of Vikingo VS Kip, but that was partly the point. Kip calls Vikingo overrated, then gets beat by Vikingo to show how legit Vikingo is, and there could even be a rivalry in the making or something. Kip still has Butcher & Blade to call on, that trio could take on Vikingo, Komander & Penta at some point.

Good match from Abadon and Kiera, with a really good win for Abadon. Julia showing up to basically call Abadon out was an interesting move but I also like it. Different kinds of spooky wrestlers are going to collide, this will be a good program for them both. And very good promos from both Storm and Skye to hype up their title match this Wednesday. Renee definitely looked like she was struggling to not break during Storm’s part, that’s how good Storm is. And I would think Storm retains because she’ll have Luther and Mariah May ringside. And good promo from Willow and Mercedes to set up their match, that’ll be really good stuff.

Good promo from Willie Mack to call out Wardlow but I would think Wardlow beats him to continue his dominance. Good promo from Christian to add some final hype onto the TNT Championship match. And good promo from Ethan Page to not just plug his time in ROH, but also to call out Kenny Omega. Ethan VS Omega is going to be really good, but that probably ends up being Omega’s win to build momentum going into the next round against Don Callis Family. But it also just makes me think Tony Khan still doesn’t get how ROH is supposed to matter. Ethan is in the middle of stuff with Tony Nese and he’s dividing his attention by wanting to be King of Canadian Wrestlers? What?

But thankfully, we did get a promo from Keith Lee and Shane Taylor to finally set up that match. And I do appreciate that it will be part of Final Battle since that’s where this feud started. Anything to make up for poor ticket sales and no ROH World Championship. Or even tag team championship at this point, right? The Kingdom called out MJF but MJF hasn’t taken the time to respond, he has The Devil of AEW to worry about. Good promo from Joe with Roddy & The Kingdom before The Kingdom beat The Iron Savages. Roddy was extra dramatic in his floundering out of the ring this time, can’t wait to see whether he and The Kingdom are still in on the whole Devil goon squad stuff.

Very good tag match from House of Black VS Daniels & Sydal but of course the House won. And good promo with FTR that then turned into a beatdown. That tag match is definitely going to be big for like Winter is Coming. And then, the Continental Classic. Great opening match from Claudio VS Brody, with a great win for Brody to lead the way in this block. And just as I expected, while we got awesome showings in the other matches, Garcia and Eddie each lost to Andrade and Bryan. Good promo for Miro wanting after Andrade but showing mercy for CJ’s sake. That feud probably waits until after the tournament, assuming Andrade isn’t a finalist. Worlds End would be a good PPV for Miro VS Andrade to happen as part of this ongoing story.

I also appreciated Eddie saying he doesn’t want to do cold open promos when he has a big match to get ready for. Doing coverage like I do, I don’t want to fall behind on the broadcast already trying to keep up with what people are saying at the very start like that. Even Claudio did a short promo because he also just wants to have his match, so they really should just have the matches and save promos for later in the night.

My Score: 8.8/10

But will the Very Nice, Very Evil Best Friends be victorious together? Or will the rogues gallery standing against them earn themselves quite a lot of golden opportunities all at once?

But wait, as Big Hurt Hager gets the VNVEBFs to turn their backs, the rogues attack! Fans boo, the bell rings, and all but Danhausen is tossed out of the ring as he tosses Reynolds instead.

The ref reprimands but the Dark Order & X-JAS get the edge. They all have someone in a corner, then they all coordinate to quadruple whip! But the Best Friends all reverse that, X-JAS and Dark Order crash into each other! And then Best Friends set up in the corners… and Hook needs to be coaxed a little bit, for the GROUP- NO, they all get kicked low! Fans boo as X-JAS & Dark Order reel them in, but the Best Friends QUADRUPLE SUPLEX!

Fans fire up because now we get the GROUP HUG! You GOT to give the people what they want! Hook then goes after Parker with body shots, but Menard storms up.

But wait, here comes Wheeler Yuta! The ROH Pure Champion wants to taunt Hook like he has been for weeks now, and then Menard CLOBBERS Hook in the distraction! Yuta joins commentary while Menard bumps Hook off buckles, and reels him in for a big suplex! Tag to Parker and he stomps Hook down. Parker stomps more, then pushes Hook around. Parker tags Uno, they mug Hook. Uno then bumps Hook off the boots of Menard and Reynolds.

Reynolds tags in, he runs side to side to ELBOW Hook! Uno SPLASHES, short arm LARIATS, and Reynolds covers, TWO! Reynolds stands on Hook’s head, fans boo but the Dark Order and X-JAS soak up the heat. But Hook clinches! Reynolds fights with forearms, then he bumps Hook off buckles. Tag to Menard, he stomps Hook then lets off to distract the ref, Uno and Parker CHOKE Hook while Rampage goes picture in picture!

Menard stomps Hook, drags him up, and ROCKS him with a right. Menard pushes Hook around, soaks up the heat, but turns around into a CHOP! Menard trips Hook, drags him back, and tags Parker in. Parker CLUBS Hook down, then stomps him. Parker taunts the Best Friends, flicks his hair gel at them, then goes back to Hook. Parker CLUBS Hook, tags Uno, and they mug Hook some more. Uno scrapes his laces on Hook’s face then tags Parker back in. Parker stomps Hook, but Hook powers Parker back! They end up on ropes, Parker KNEES Hook back! Parker then BLASTS Cassidy off the corner!

Rampage returns to singe picture as Parker goes after Hook, and Hook gets around to NORTHERN LIGHTS! Parker tags Menard but Hook LARIATS Menard down! The fans fire up as Hook and Menard crawl, hot tags to Trent and Uno! Trent rallies on Uno, then on Reynolds! GERMAN SUPLEX! And then another GERMAN SUPLEX!

Reynolds goes up but Trent YANKS him down for a SAIDO! Fans fire up with Trent!

Trent tags Cassidy, and Cassidy storms up to “unleash.” But then he really does fire off BOOT after BOOT on Dark Order! Yuta sighs as this is typical Cassidy. Cassidy dodges the Dark Order’s double lariat to DOUBLE SHOTGUN! Cassidy kips up and the fans fire up! Cassidy ducks ‘n’ dodges and tilt-o-whirls, but Uno stops the DDT to suplex! Only to get STUN DOG MILLIONAIRE! Cassidy keeps moving but Uno BOOTS him! Uno hooks Cassidy up, for SOMETHING EVIL! Cover, Trent KNEES it apart! Fans fire up, Reynolds BOOTS Trent! Reynolds runs in to BOOT Cassidy in a corner! Reynolds puts Cassidy up top!

Reynolds ROCKS Cassidy, climbs up, but Trent runs up to get Reynolds! SUPER GERMAN SUPLEX! Fans fire up as Cassidy adjusts, and Danhausen tags in! But so does Menard!

Menard lets Danhausen go, but Danhausen rolls him up! BEST FRIENDS WIN!

Winners: Orange Cassidy, Hook, Danhausen & Trent Beretta, by pinfall

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


Backstage interview with The Outcasts & Anna Jay.

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

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


Tony Schiavone is in the ring.

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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


The Don Callis Family VS JAH-C

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

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

Winners: The Don Callis Family, by pinfall

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


Prince Nana & Brian Cage talk with The Workhorsemen.

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


BREAKING NEWS for Dynamite!

Firstly, the Continental Classic continues, and the Gold League’s third round has been set: Jon Moxley VS Rush; Jay White VS Jay Lethal; and Swerve Strickland VS Mark Briscoe! Will El Toro Blanco be the one to serve The Maniac that first L in the tournament? Will Lethal and Briscoe finally get on the board?

And after being the one to score the pinfall in tonight’s Six Woman Tag, Skye Blue gets her shot at “Timeless” Toni Storm and the AEW Women’s World Championship! Will Skye finally make it through the Storm to grab the gold on the other side?


Six Man Tag: Penta El Zero Miedo, El Hijo Del Vikingo & Komander w/ Alex Abrahantes VS Brian Cage & The Workhorsemen w/ Prince Nana!

While the AEW World Trios Champions, Billy Gunn & The Acclaimed, are down and out, trios are forming and fighting their way up. Alex Abrahantes’ league of luchadores want their shot, but will they make it through a Rampage? Or will The Mogul Embassy learn that having #CeroMiedo is priceless?

The trios sort out, and Cage starts against Komander. Cage kicks Komander low right at the bell, then whips him to ropes. Komander handsprings, Cage dodges but Komander dodges back, then RAN- NO, Cage blocks that to pop Komander up! But Komander sunset flips! Cage drags Kmoander up to OVERHEAD SUPLEX! Penta tags in, then GAMANGIRIS Cage! Penta goes up to CROSSBODY! And then he dodges to SUPERKICK! Henry tags in, bobs ‘n’ weaves and fires off hands. Henry gets around to make Penta kneel, and he DROPKICKS Penta away! Henry soaks up the jeers, but Penta tags Vikingo!

Vikingo forearm smashes int he corner, goes up and fans rally, for the IMPLODER DRAGON-RANA! And then the DREAMCAST KICK! JD tags in and fans rally up. JD says “SUCK IT!” and then dares Vikingo to chop him. Vikingo winds up as fans chant “SI! SI! SI!” CHOP! JD nods, but he wants another. Vikingo CHOPS again, and JD huffs and puffs. JD swings, Vikingo ducks ‘n’ dodges but JD CHOPS Vikingo down after all!

JD then powers Vikingo to ropes to BIEL him across the way! JD taunts Penta, whips Vikingo, but Vikingo ducks ‘n’ dodges again to CORKCCREW RANA!

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

My Thoughts:

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

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

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

My Score: 8.5/10
