The Relentless Icons are in the ring, the Embassy is on the retreat! Will Darby & Sting help Freshly Squeezed get past the Mogul Embassy’s numbers game?

 

AEW hears from tonight’s main eventers.

Jay White tells Ricky Starks, “Let me be honest with you. You have a lot of things going for you. You’re charismatic, you have everything it takes to reach the top of this business. That’s coming from me, so you know that those words mean something.” But The Absolute tells The Switchblade, “Whatever you did in the past doesn’t matter tonight. I’m gonna expose you for who you are.” White says that Starks has to look past his own ego that has grown out of control, to see that the man standing across from him in the ring tonight is going to show him just how out of his depth he is tonight.

Starks says he IS Absolute, and that is what White is gonna get and gonna understand. Starks is a man without boundaries! But White says this is absolutely still the Switchblade Era. With no one else allowed ringside, will these two finally settle the score once and for all?

 

Bryan Danielson is here!

The American Dragon already has big plans for Forbidden Door as he challenged The Rainmaker, Kazuchika Okada! AEW has a highlight reel of the “once in a lifetime” professional wrestler that is Okada, and replays some of Bryan’s promo from NJPW Dominion. “For the last 10 years, I’ve heard people talk about how great you are. How you’re the best wrestler of this generation. And I’ve also heard in interviews, that you said you wanna wrestle me. […] You wanna wrestle Bryan Danielson?” Okada’s response is that at Forbidden Door, we will see who is the REAL best in the world. Bryan says, “You’re good. I know you’re good. But I am the litmus test of ‘great.'”

Bryan says Okada calls himself the Rainmaker, but “When you step in the ring with me, you’re going into the EFFING DESERT! And there ain’t gonna be no rain.” Bryan now joins commentary as it is announced officially: Bryan VS Okada at Forbidden Door 2023! Okada was called a “once in a lifetime” wrestler in that video, but Bryan is also once in a lifetime! What happens when these two generational talents collide in Canada?

 

Six Man Tag: Blackpool Combat Club VS Chaos!

Speaking of Bryan and Okada, each of their allies are battling here tonight! Will Jon Moxley, Claudio Castagnoli & Wheeler Yuta use #DeathJitsu to destroy Trent Beretta, Chuck Taylor & Rocky Romero?

As soon as the BCC hops the railing, Chuck CHUCKS a chair at Moxley! And then Rocky CROSSBODIES Claudio from the corner! Chuck kicks Yuta, CLUBS away on him, he and Rocky put Yuta on the corner for Trent! Trent gets Yuta up to SUPERPLEX! Fans fire up and the bell rings, Chuck goes after Yuta! Bryan is actually impressed, because “this is what you have to do against us.” Chuck hits a PILEDRIVER! Cover, Claudio breaks it! Claudio stomps Chuck, Moxley storms in to also stomp, and then Moxley throws Chuck by his hair! The ref reprimands, Moxley and Claudio go to the corner, Yuta tags Claudio in.

Claudio fires off forearms on Chuck while Moxley talks trash. Claudio stomps Chuck down, tags Moxley back in, and they hoist Chuck up, but Trent trips Yuta to RAM him into railing! That throws Moxley off, Rocky DROPKICKS Moxley! Chuck fights free, Claudio ROCKS him with a forearm while Rocky FLYING KNEES Moxley! Chuck throws Claudio out to then FLY! Direct hit at the ramp! The fans are thunderous as Chaos regroups, and they all HUG! You GOT to give the people what they want! Moxley returns, but Trent feeds him to an UPPERCUT! SOLE FOOD HALF ‘N’ HALF! And then Chuck fires off hands!

Chuck ROCKS Moxley, runs, but Yuta hooks a leg! The ref reprimands but Moxley hits a CUTTER! Moxley tags Claudio, then Claudio tags Yuta. Yuta and Claudio coordinate, for a HART ATTACK, to DOUBLE STOMPS! The BCC flexes, Yuta covers but the ref is busy with Trent. TWO, and Yuta is upset, but Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Yuta keeps Chuck down with a knee in the back and pulling on the arms. Chuck endures the motorcycle stretch, but Yuta shifts it to a full nelson. Yuta pushes Chuck to the corner. Claudio tags in, and they mug Chuck. Claudio stomps Chuck, grinds him down, and Moxley tags in to stomp Chuck. Moxley throws forearms, runs in to clothesline at the corner, then he CHOPS! And CHOPS! And CHOPS! But Chuck ROCKS and CHOPS in return! Molxey pokes Chuck in the eyes! The ref reprimands but Moxley brings Chuck up to tag in Yuta. HALF HATCH to SENTON! Yuta covers, TWO! Yuta clamps onto Chuck and wrenches an arm.

Yuta grinds the arm, Chuck fights up and throws forearms. Chuck runs but Yuta CLOBBERS him! Cover, TWO! Claudio tags in to clamp onto Chuck with a chinlock. Claudio keeps Chuck from the Chaos corner, grinds Chuck down with a half nelson, but Chuck fights up. Chuck stands up, throws body shots, and reaches for his corner. But Claudio gut wrench SUPLEXES!

Yuta keeps firing down elbows!! The ref tells him to stop but the BCC says keep going. Yuta lets off finally, all fired up, and the BCC applauds their young protégé. Will The BCC soon tear up everyone in AEW, ROH and NJPW at the Forbidden Door?

 

The Elite are backstage.

Specifically, Hangman Page & The Young Bucks. Matt Jackson asks Brandon Cutler if they’re live, and yes they are. Okay, so everyone can see them on the big screen, right? And Bryan, hey, since you’re on commentary, “Wassup, pricks?” Hangman tells BCC that was a great, great match. Didn’t see it, but it sounded great. And not to be sentimental, but they’re going to be in Washington, DC next week, the place where Dynamite began. “And speaking of beginning, if you thought Anarchy in the Arena was the end of us, it was only the beginning.” They’re making a challenge for a trios match! Can they do it without Bryan and Takeshita? The choice is yours.

Bryan says the BCC never runs from a fight. Challenge accepted! DC was the first ever AEW Dynamite, it was the first time The Elite was on live weekly television. So guess what? Next week in DC, it will be their last. Will DC be the last ride of The Elite?

 

AEW looks at another Forbidden Door dream match.

Kenny Omega once told Will Ospreay, “364 days a year, you’re a better wrestler than me. But it only takes one to be a champion.” Highlights from WrestleKingdom earlier this year show Kenny Omega winning back the IWGP United States Championship as he dethroned the Commonwealth Kingpin. Will Ospreay said this is about sacrifice, and he has sacrificed more than enough to get where he is today. “Do I have to effing sacrifice more?” Ospreay fought his way through a #1 contenders tournament in Japan to become Omega’s next challenger, and he wants Omega to remember him. Ospreay is back for revenge!

Omega doesn’t lose big matches, but Ospreay is not settling for anything less than getting back that US Championship for himself. Who will leave Toronto with that title?

 

MJF is here!

Colorado Springs cheer and jeer the AEW World Heavyweight Champion, who has just now hit day 200 in his title reign. MJF of course has them cut his music, and he is sure the people here in “Crapshoot, Colorado” have smoked their brains out by now, but when a champ is holding the mic, you druggies keep your mouths shut! When MJF was told he was contractually obligated to show up here, he almost offed himself. There is not a more boring place in the world! Colorado sucks! Fans boo but he reminds them. he’s talking, it’s not that complicated. Fans still boo. “But if anybody knows about being bored, it’s me. Because there is no competition for me in this company!”

That is because- Fans chant “YOU SUCK! YOU SUCK!” but MJF says their mamas swallow. “NOBODY is on the level of the Devil!” But here comes Adam Cole! Fans fire up as the Undisputed One heads to the ring, “BOOM!” MJF smirks as Cole gets in the ring, and then he cuts the music off before the BAYBAY. Fans boo MJF more, but Cole smirks now. Fans call MJF a POS, and then MJF says, “Well if it isn’t Adam Cole Baybay. Y’know what? I’m not even gonna lie to you, I’m excited. I don’t know about you people, but finally! Some worthy competition for the champ, huh?” Fans do cheer that.

MJF isn’t even being facetious, because he really is a big fan of Adam Cole’s. No, seriously! Seriously! Guys, again, he’s holding the mic, c’mon. But when CM Punk up and left MJF when he was a kid, he thought his fandom of pro-wrestling was over. But then he turned on TV, flipped the channels a bit, and he came across some little show called “Ring of Honor.” Do people know about ROH? Fans boo so MJF takes that as a no, as opposed to them not liking his mockery of ROH. Well, MJF isn’t gonna lie, he agrees that ROH sucks. “It was filled with a bunch of indie jabronies that had no right being on my TV.

“And just as I was about to change the channel again, out walked a guy with slick, jet black hair, icy blue eyes, cool jacked tan, calm, cool, collected. Incredible in the ring, perfection on the microphone. And that man was you, Adam Cole. I was instantly hooked. I mean, genuinely, instantly hooked. And when I started training to become a pro-wrestler I got as much of your tape as I could get my hands on. I watched you all the way to your days in CZW, where you won championship gold. I watched you go to every single top independent and become the hottest free agent in the world. And then, I watched you go down to Florida, and shock the system.”

MJF says Cole was so good, he was Shawn Michaels’ handpicked guy! He was so good, he became the greatest world champion in the history of that company, and that is undisputed. Get it? Fans chant “MARK! MARK! MARK!” at MJF but he’ll proudly take it! He was a mark for Cole! Because Cole was that good! MJF followed in Cole’s footsteps! He went to CZW, where he won gold. He became a top name in the indies, and then he signed to AEW. Deep down, MJF knew Cole would make the jump, and when he did, they’d have the rivalry of a lifetime. Two generational talents: MJF VS Adam Cole BAYBAY!

But then… this guy shows up. “What happened to you, man? You used to be the Panama Playboy. Now, you’re the Panama Gameboy. You sit at home behind your computer, playing Twitch, hiding from the sun, looking like a virgin Gollum… Meanwhile, Britt Baker keeps leaving the house with your balls firmly in her purse. And to make matters worse, bud, didn’t you used to have the body and the physique of a world champion? Now, no offense, you’re so frail, you make crack whores jealous.” Fans boo but MJF says Cole isn’t hitting the same way he used to. He sees what they all say online: It’s not Cole’s fault, the company is simply not showcasing him properly.

To those people, MJF says you don’t have a gaddam clue what you’re talking about! This company has done everything in its power to make Cole cool: lights, music, shirts, matches, Britt, their own reality show! Y’know what they do to make MJF cool? They ring the freakin’ bell! Cole smirks as MJF asks, “Sound familiar?” MJF recaps his matches: greatest singles dog collar match of all time; greatest Ironman match of all time; greatest Fatal 4 Way of all time; the world champion, the best pro-wrestler on God’s Green Earth! MJF has beaten every single top guy the fans thought were on his level. What makes Cole think he’ll be any different?

And before Cole answers that, MJF read a “nasty little rumor” about Cole online. MJF read that the reason Cole made the jump here was because a certain individual at the top didn’t think Cole had top guy potential. And that individual was Vince McMahon. Fans boo Vince, rightfully so, but MJF says he’s a big fan of that guy. MJF heard that rumor, he thought the old man had finally lost his marbles. How could you not see “top guy” in Adam Cole? But to be honest, now that he’s eye to eye with Cole in his ring, MJF has to admit… Vince was right! Fans boo but Cole still smirks back at MJF.

Cole takes a step back to get a mic of his own. Fans cheer and Cole says, “Really? Was that the best you’ve got? This is the great MJF, the guy who verbally destroys people on the microphone. Instead, you’re coming off like a toxic social media troll. Now, there’s a ton of things I could comment on. First and foremost, I’m gonna brush over the Britt part, because I’m pretty sure she can beat the hell outta you. But what exactly is your obsession with other people’s relationships? Like, first it was Bryan, now it’s me. I understand your fiancée left you, and you can’t hold a relationship like your life depended on it, but c’mon.”

And truth be told, Cole finally figured it out: MJF is world class, at being a douchebag. Fans echo “DOUCHEBAG! DOUCHEBAG!” And oh wow, how could we not talk about Cole’s body? Like he’s never heard that before. Y’know why MJF brings that up? Because of Cole’s body of work. The matches he’s had, the interviews he’s done, the world title reigns he’s had. Max, get real, you can’t touch Cole. But! If MJF really, really wants to go down this road, here’s an idea. Let’s both go backstage, piss in some cups, and we see who is natural and who’s not. OH, you don’t wanna do that? Yeah, Cole thought so.

Cole understands MJF studied Cole’s career, but they are nothing alike! For 15 years, Cole has traveled the world, shared locker room after locker room, this one included, and those boys ‘n’ girls in the back respect Cole. Cole knows that he’s been a bad guy in the past, but as a wrestler and a man, they all respect him, the human being that is Adam Cole. MJF on the other hand, Cole isn’t sure how to make this any more clear. Cole swears on his life that there is not a single person back there who does respect MJF. If MJF asked if they respect him, they’d laugh in his face! They all think he’s selfish, conceited, lazy, does the bare minimum to collect a paycheck and hold onto that title.

Max, Cole speaks for himself, everyone else on the roster, and a whole hell of a lot people in the audience when he says, NO ONE respects you! MJF frowns and fans chat “NO RESPECT! NO RESPECT!” MJF says, “Oh, no! You guys don’t respect me? How about I cry into all my money about it? By the way, that’s an awful lot of tough talk coming from Keith Lee’s manager.” Cole laughs because there it is! Of course MJF has to create a false narrative to hide from how he’s such a coward of a champion. If MJF were a real champion, he’d tell Cole to shut his mouth and fight. But MJF isn’t doing that, because he IS a coward!

Fans chant “COW~ARD! COW~ARD!” now, and Cole says it isn’t worth it. Cole knows he is wasting his breath. All of this will go over MJF’s head. So if MJF remembers anything from tonight, remember this: “You won’t fight me, because I’m better than you, and THEY know it!” MJF is pissed and he keeps Cole from leaving! You don’t turn your back on MJF!! MJF will wrestle Cole any day of the week and beat his ass!! Fans fire up and Cole smiles again. “Atta boy, champ. Looks like we got ourselves a match.” Cole tops it off with the BAYBAY, because he just got MJF to take the bait. Will MJF finally see who is really the best in AEW?

 

The Hardy Party speaks backstage.

Matt Hardy says these events must be documented! Everyone knows the OG Hardy Party, but please welcome their newest member, and Matt’s new employee, Ethan Page. All Ego walks in and Jeff says Ethan is a talented man. He just needs to use his ego for good. A few weeks ago, Ethan talked about him and Kassidy as #TheMoanEvent, Jeff was hooked. Matt says speaking of, Ethan owes Kassidy an apology. Really? Right now? Yes! You hurt Kassidy, apologize to him. Ethan says, “Sorry.” Matt wants him to be more genuine. Ethan says he is sorry, and he offers a handshake. Kassidy accepts.

Matt says when The Firm had him under contract, they made his life hell. But that is not what Matt is going to do. he is going to make Ethan into a better man. He sees potential in Ethan, they just have to get rid of that ego. Ethan has a wife and kids, and so much talent. When it is all said and done, he will be a better man. Kassidy says it’ll also be a lot of fun. AHN~! Will Ethan be able to find redemption thanks to the Hardy Boyz?

This Texas Tornado Tag got even wilder than expected, but JB & Hook win out. Will LFI think twice before pushing these two young studs? Will JungleHook be sticking together to take over AEW?

 

Tony Khan speaks backstage.

“Hi. It’s great to be here tonight in Colorado Springs. We have a lot of exciting things happening in AEW, it’s such an exciting time as we approach Forbidden Door on PPV, June 25th, live in Toronto. And before that, we launch a new series: AEW Collision starts June 17th, every Saturday night, 8 PM Eastern, 7 PM Central, on TNT. I’m here tonight to talk about the first-ever main event, live at the United Center, June 17th. In the main event of the first-ever AEW Collision, Switchblade Jay White, Juice Robinson, and Samoa Joe will take on the AEW World Tag Team Champions, FTR… and CM Punk.” A huge battle between top guys, will Punk make sure he is once again the Best in the World?

 

Konosuke Takeshita w/ Don Callis VS Daman Ace!

Going from excitement to a buzzkill, there is no music but the chorus of boos as “Turncoat Takeshita” and “Dirty Don” make their way out. Will Takeshita prove Callis right by becoming better than the greats?

The bell rings and Takeshita CLOBBERS Daman, then rains down fists! The ref checks, those aren’t closed fists, but the fans still boo. Takeshita smirks as he drags Daman up, puts him in a corner by pulling hair, and then he gives a HEADBUTT! And then KNEE after KNEE after KNEE! Daman sits down, the ref counts, and Takeshita lets off. Fans boo but Takeshita just smiles. Takeshita drags Daman up but Daman throws hands! Fans rally for Daman but Takeshita DECKS him! Takeshita keeps Daman sitting up, to BLINDSIDE FOREARM! Fans boo the tron playing highlights of Callis betraying Omega.

Konosuke doesn’t end Daman here, he aims from the corner, to POWER DRIVE KNEE!! Cover, Tatkeshita wins!

Winner: Konosuke Takeshita, by pinfall

The fans boo more as Callis gets in the ring with a mic and raises Takeshita’s hand in victory. Callis wants to talk but the fans just keep going. Callis then says, “I’ve got something to say! And unlike last week, I will be heard!” Fans boo louder, but Callis lets Takeshita speak. Takeshita, in Japanese, tells fans that they will listen! Takeshita calls out Kenny Omega, saying that Omega will see who is truly the best! Callis says we fans may not want to hear it, but he is going to tell us the truth about Kenny Omega! Everything Omega has had in life is because of Callis! And this is all Kenny’s fault! Everything The Elite has was because of Callis!

Kenny beat Ospreay because of Callis! Kenny has been like a cancer in Callis’ body! “And what do you do with cancer? You cut it out!” And now, Callis’ family is going to cut The Elite out of AEW for good! Callis drops the mic, pats Takeshita on the back, but will The Elite look to be the ones that cure AEW of the real toxic element?

 

Backstage interview with Christian Cage.

Alex Marvez is outside Captain Charisma’s locker room as he requested time to speak tonight, but it sounds like something is going on in there. Alex knocks on the door, the door opens up, and Christian steps out. What is going on in there? Christian tells us that at Double or Nothing, Arn Anderson cost him the TNT Championship. Christian was at the top of the ladder, belt within his grasp, and Arn tips the ladder to send Christian into the waiting arms of Wardlow. Christian is the uncrowned TNT Champion. Arn took something from Christian, so now he takes something from Arn.

Christian knocks on the door, Luchasaurus opens it and we can see someone is behind him, beaten up and on the floor. Christian tells Arn that his son, Brock, got him a very nice Father’s Day present. BROCK ANDERSON just got brutalized! Alex calls for medics, what will The Enforcer and the Maestro of Mayhem do to get back at Christian and his Right Hand of Destruction?

 

AEW TBS Championship: Kris Statlander VS Anna Jay A.S w/ Matthew Menard!

The Galaxy’s Greatest has already shown she’s a fighting champion by defeating Nyla Rose last week, but she’s not slowing down. Will she go 3-0 since her return at Double or Nothing? Or will the Queenslayer choke her out?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see who is truly the star of the show!

The bell rings and the two circle. Fans rally, the two tie up, and Kris headlocks. Kris hits the takeover, but Anna keeps her shoulders up and moves around. Anna headscissors, but Kris rolls back, pops free, and she powers her way to a headlock. Anna fights up, pops free to headlock, but Kris blocks the takeover! Kris pries the hold open, headlocks back, and hits another takeover. Anna moves around, headscissors, and Menard applauds. Kris kips free, gets around, waistlock and DSLAM! Kris facelocks, Anna fights up, and Anna throws body shots. Anna slips around to headlock but Kris powers up to a BIG back suplex!

Kris kips up and fans fire up! Kris smiles, flexes, and says, “Mama’s home!” Kris runs, Anna drops, then bails out. Fans boo but Kris storms out after Anna. Anna slides back in to troll Kris more, but Kris slides in. Anna bails out, the cat ‘n’ mouse continues, but Menard blocks Kris’ path. He dares her to do something about it, but then Anna goes to the apron. But Kris block the kick to trip Anna up! Kris pushes Anna in, to ROUNDHOUSE! Kris runs, to run Anna over! Cover, TWO! Kris drags Anna up, whips her to a corner, and runs in, but Anna dodges. Anna comes back to HEEL KICK Kris into buckles!

Anna DECKS Kris, stomps away, and Menard soaks up the heat while fans boo. The ref counts as Anna stands on Kris’ neck at the ropes, and Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Anna steps off at 4 but then Menard gets on the apron to soak up even more heat. Anna stands Kris up to dig her boot into Kris’ neck. The ref counts, Anna lets off, and Kris crawls. Anna stomps Kris, bumps her off buckles, and then Anna ROCKS her with a right! Anna whips corner to corner hard and Kris bounces off buckles! Anna takes a bow while Kris writhes. Anna stomps Kris, stands on her neck, but the ref counts. Anna steps off, Kris sputters, and Anna drags Kris onto the ropes to CHOKE her! The ref counts again, Anna steps off at 4, and Menard talks trash right at Kris. Anna storms up but Kris throws forearms!

Kris runs, but Anna ducks the discus to wrench and HOOK KICK! Cover, TWO! Kris grits her teeth and Anna is frustrated, but Anna CLUBS Kris back down. And again! Anna drags Kris up, throws her by her hair, but the ref reprimands. Anna covers, TWO! Anna keeps her focus as she drags Kris back up. Anna turns Kris for a neckbreaker stretch! Kris endures, fights up, but Anna just hits a NECKBREAKER! Anna drags Kris back up, but Kris JAWBREAKERS back! Kris fires forearms, but Anna ROCKS her back! Kris fires another forearm, so Anna gives it back! Kris fires off a flurry!

Kris has Anna in a corner, and she CHOPS and forearms on repeat! Dynamite returns to single picture, fans fire up and Kris runs to UPPERCUT! Kris goes side to side, to KNEE Anna, then scoop to POWERSLAM! Cover, TWO! Menard is relieved, and we see Taya Valkyrie once again watching backstage. La Wera Loca is still upset that Kris is champion instead of her, but Kris drags Anna to a drop zone. Menard distracts Kris as she climbs, and fans boo, but Anna ROCKS Kris! Anna TOSSES Kris, then hooks her up, GORY BOMB! Cover, TWO!! The shoutout to Tay Melo wasn’t enough and Anna is beside herself!

Fans rally as Anna drags Kris up. Anna clamps on the QUEENSLAYER!! She even hops on as a backpack! But Kris RAMS Anna into buckles! Kris runs back in, but into a BOOT! Anna runs, Kris dodges, DISCUS LARIAT! Fans fire up but Menard gets on the apron again. The ref tells him to get down but Menard eggs Kris on. Kris swings, misses, and Anna O’Conner Rolls, then drops into the QUEENSLAYER!! Kris endures, fights up to her feet, and fans fire up as Kris THROWS Anna right off! Kris roars, runs and STO BACKBREAKER! And then a gut wrench and TOMBSTONE!! Cover, Kris wins!

Winner: Kris Statlander, by pinfall (still AEW TBS Champion)

Taya is even more upset that Kris is still champion right now, but Kris is earning these wins. Will Taya just have to fight her way to a match with The Galaxy’s Greatest?

 

BREAKING NEWS for Rampage!

After all the back and forth in the Blackjack Battle Royal, we see The Lucha Brothers & Bandido take on Ethan Page, Lee Moriarty & “Big Bill” Morrissey! Will Matt Hardy’s “better man” training already show results in that match? Or will Ethan be firmly All Ego? Plus, “Powerhouse” Hobbs is back in action, wanting to get back to some gold! And in another trios match, we see The Acclaimed & Billy Gunn take on the full Spanish Announce Project. Will Max Caster, Anthony Bowens & Daddy Ass bounce back from Double or Nothing?

And then, a star-studded Fatal 4 Way will see Britt Baker, Sky Blue, Mercedes Martinez and Nyla Rose compete for a AEW Women’s World Championship opporutnity! Speaking of…

Toni Storm & Ruby Soho speak.

The champion says Friday on Rampage, we’ll see a Fatal 4 Way match, the winner facing Toni Storm for a title match next week on Dynamite. Now it will be in the same building and the same city as the very first Dynamite, where the first-ever women’s champion was crowned. Ruby says this is gonna be special. What a lucky girl that’ll be to face Toni. Ruby tells the four contenders that The Outcasts will be watching. Storm says the winner of that match will be facing the greatest AEW Women’s World Champion that ever lived. Soho gets chills, but who gets the shot at the gold in DC?

 

BREAKING NEWS for next week’s Dynamite!

On top of the Women’s World Championship match, as well as the Six Man Tag of the BCC VS Hangman & The Bucks, there will be a massive 8 Man Tag as Swerve and the entire Mogul Embassy will take on the unlikely quartet of Orange Cassidy, Darby Allin, Sting and Keith Lee! Will all scores be settled at once? Plus, after the verbal confrontation between Cole and MJF, we will see Adam Cole VS MJF in a World Title Eliminator match! If Cole wins, he is guaranteed a title shot, but if MJF wins, Cole is crossed off the list! Will Cole prove he IS on the level of The Devil?

 

Ricky Starks VS Jay White!

Finally, truly, hopefully, The Absolute and The Switchblade go 1v1, with a ringside ban keeping Cash Wheeler, Dax Harwood and Juice Robinson from getting involved. Can Bullet Club Gold be trusted in not stacking the deck on Starks? Or will Starks still need to have his head on a swivel?

But Starks doesn’t wait for White to get in the ring! He rushes White at the ramp and fires off! They brawl, Starks gets the better of White, and he stomps away! Starks stands White up to ROCK him, then follow him down to the ring. Starks puts White in, the bell rings, and White wants time, but Starks clotheslines him up and out! Starks RAMS White into railing, brings him up again, and puts him against railing to CHOP! The ring count climbs, Starks kisses the lady’s hand in the front row, then SMACKS White off the apron. Starks mocks the finger guns then puts White in at 6 of 10. White rolls out the other side, so Starks just goes around the way.

Starks CLOBBERS White, the ref wants this back in the ring, but Starks refreshes the count. Starks CHOPS White, pushes him back into the ring, then goes up to the apron. White swings but Starks blocks to counter punch! Starks storms in, dodges White, and then back drops him! Fans fire up with Starks and he looms over White. Starks goes out to look under the ring and fans rally up. Starks keeps looking but White bails out the side, so Starks stomps him down. Starks continues the search, and he settles for moving the steel steps around. Starks turns them upside-down, but White is going up the ramp!

Starks hurries after White, and CLOBBERS him on the stage! White hits back, KNEES low, the ref reprimands them but White suplexes. Starks fights, wrenches and knees low in return. Starks CLUBS White, brings him up, throws body shots, and then aims at the edge! White fights the whip to throw hands, and rake eyes! White hurries back down the ramp but Starks CLOBBERS him! White flops to ringside but Starks is after him again. Starks keeps White from crawling away, but White elbows him back. Fans rally, White SMACKS Starks off the apron, and then White sees the steps. White pounds the steps and brings them around.

The ref reprimands, White puts the steps back in place. White grins as he trolls the fans, then he refreshes the count. But Starks snap suplexes White to the floor! Fans rally while Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Starks stalks White, drags him up, and pushes him into the ring. Starks looks under the ring again, and he finally finds a chair. Starks hits the post to test it, but the ref tells Starks no. The ref takes the chair away, and White BLASTS Starks off the apron! Starks hits railing, then White goes out after him. White APRON GOURD BUSTERS Starks! White shoves Starks in, covers, TWO! White is annoyed but he stalks Starks to ropes. White TOSSES Starks out, then argues with the ref about going back out there. White goes out after Starks, CHOPS him, then smirks as he brings Starks around the way.

White CHOPS Starks against railing, and he throws up the finger gun. White refreshes the ring count, then he RAMS Starks into railing! The ring count starts again but White slides in. White gets up on the corner to taunt Starks, then goes out after him, and CLUBS away on his back! White puts Starks back in, Starks scrambles to a corner, and White storms up on him. White RAMS into Starks, and RAMS him again, and again! White whips corner to corner hard and Starks bounces off buckles. Dynamite returns to single picture as White mocks Starks. Fans boo as White watches Starks rise back up in the corner.

White aims his finger gun, then CHOPS! Starks staggers, White pushes him to another corner, and CHOPS again! White stands Starks up to CHOP again! Starks sputters, clutches his chest and throat, but White grins as he stands Starks up again. White CHOPS again! Starks ROCKS White with forearms! And again and again! Starks whips, runs in, and TORNADO- NO, White puts Starks up top! White CHOPS again! Starks wobbles up top while White catches his breath. White then climbs up after Starks, and he brings Starks up for a SUPERPLEX!! Both men writhe and fans fire up! White crawls to the cover, TWO!!

White is frustrated as Starks survives! Fans rally up, White paces around, and White drags Starks up. White aims his finger gun, clinches, but Starks throws haymakers! White fishhooks Starks! White KNEES low, whips him to a corner, but Starks dodges to come back, LEAPING LARIAT! Fans fire up as White flounders to a corner. Starks runs in to back elbow! And then TORNADO DDT! High stack cover, TWO!! White survives, but there’s a reason he’s a NJPW Grand Slam Champion! Fans still rally behind Starks, he drags White up but White shoves him away. But Starks catches White to an URENAGE! Cover, TWO!

Starks is frustrated but he throws off the elbow pads. Fans rally as Starks slashes his throat! Starks drags White up, but White fights the underhooks!

White drags Starks up, clinches, but Starks spins around to suplex! White slips out, shoves, Starks ducks ‘n’ dodges to SPEAR!! Fans are thunderous, Starks underhooks White, Canadian Rack, but White’s feet hit the ref! ROSHAMBEAUX!! Cover, but there’s no one to count!! And wait, what’re Austin & Colten Gunn doing here?! Granted, the ringside ban wasn’t about them, but still! The fans boo as the Ass Boys slither into the ring, and hit Starks with 3:10 TO YUMA!!! The Gunns run away into the night, and White sees Starks is down! He calls to the ref, crawls to Starks and drags him up! BLADERUNNER!!! Cover, White wins!!

Winner: Jay White, by pinfall

Austin & Colten screw Starks, but what for? And then Juice comes out to celebrate with White, as well as rub it in Starks’ face! Are The Gunns joining up with Bullet Club Gold? Will Bullet Club Gold and Samoa Joe tear down FTR and the returning CM Punk? Or will the Top Guys stand tall?


My Thoughts:

A great Dynamite amid what Tony Khan himself said was an exciting and busy time for AEW. Though, was that really Tony Khan? Between how his announcements are written and how he delivers them, he is starting to sound AI generated. But anyway, while I figured we were getting Bullet Club Gold VS FTR next, I suppose throwing them and then Joe and Punk into a Six Man Tag is a logical move. FTR gets along with Punk, a tag match like that will help take all the pressure off Punk in his return, and Punk can just come in for the finish so he gets credit for the win. And Chicago will eat it up because it’s CM Punk.

Awesome opener for the International Championship, and Swerve came so close. But Cassidy winning again isn’t that big of a surprise, he’s just been amazing his entire reign. But the Embassy attacking and then Sting & Darby making the save was good stuff. Keith Lee joining up in the announced 8 Man Tag makes sense, though this still isn’t quite the blowoff anyone was hoping for. But maybe, just maybe, something like Cassidy VS Darby or Cassidy VS Keith Lee, or even Cassidy VS Darby VS Keith in a Triple Threat for the International Championship comes out of this. All those possibilities would be amazing.

Great video for AEW to announce Bryan Danielson VS Kazuchika Okada, as well as one for Kenny Omega VS Will Ospreay. Bryan VS Okada could go either way, but I feel like something causes Omega to lose the title to Ospreay. Omega hasn’t really been able to defend the IWGP US Championship stateside so Ospreay should take it back to have it on NJPW programming again. And also, Callis & Takeshita are definitely going to be why Omega loses. Takeshita of course wins his match, though Callis kinda repeats what he said last week. Really good Six Man Tag from BCC VS Chaos, but I figured BCC would win. Hangman & Bucks have a good promo to call them out, and BCC VS #HungBucks next week is going to be good stuff.

Really good stuff for Rampage, too. Each of the Six Man Tag matches will be good. Pretty sure Acclaimed & Daddy Ass win so they have momentum going into their rematch with House of Black. And after a good promo from Hardy Party and Ethan, I feel like Ethan’s team is going to lose because Matt’s “better man” training conflicts with his Heel instincts. Good promo from Ruby & Toni ahead of that Fatal 4 Way contenders match. But clearly, Britt is winning that because she’s the one with the most beef against The Outcasts. I kinda wish Shida was in there instead of Skye Blue, but I think Skye is in there just to take the pin.

Really good TBS Championship match between Kris and Anna, but I figured Kris would win to extend the reign. I feel like Taya could’ve come out after that match to call Kris out, but maybe that happens after Kris’ third defense. We got a great Texas Tornado Tag, but WOW, Vance got really bloody. I would hope that wasn’t worked bleeding, because it just means AEW is getting dicey with how badly they cut their guys. Vance was painted with his own blood so quickly, it was rather shocking. But of course JungleHook won. And just like last week, I thought JB was a moment away from turning on Hook. Maybe we get a “friendly” match between JB and Hook for the FTW title that then gets chippy and causes them to be at odds.

Christian Cage had a good promo, and I figured Luchasaurus was beating someone up. This just gives me more credence to think Brock Anderson and Brian Pillman Jr. should join up with Arn and Wardlow to counter Christian and Luchasaurus. Great main event match from Starks VS White, but I did not expect The Gunns to be the ones helping White win. I thought BCG was going to bring in another “former” Bullet Club member, but there isn’t really anyone that would work given what NJPW is doing with Bullet Club right now. So I guess Gunns using Starks as a proxy to get at FTR is the connection here?

And great promo out of MJF and Adam Cole to start their feud. Like Cole, I felt it was both clever yet cliché at the same time for MJF to copy-paste Cole’s promo on Karrion Kross. And of course MJF brought up the rumored Keith Lee and Adam Cole wrestler-and-manager combo, as MJF is Mr. Low Hanging Fruit. But Cole basically put MJF in his place, we’re getting a great match next week, and I would think Cole wins to earn a title match rather than be crossed off the list so soon. Then we’ll get an even more amazing match for the title, maybe at All In London so that MJF has time to razz on Cole more, as well as pull his usual attempts of removing Cole before ever needing to defend the title.

My Score: 8.8/10

Just last night on Rampage, The Spanish God called out the Don Callis Family, and then got jumped by the Don Callis Family! Callis and the rest of the family has been banned from ringside, as has Chris Jericho, this must be settled between Sammy and Hobbs! Will there be anything left of Sammy to return home to his wife and daughter? Or will The Book of Hobbs call for no mercy and no remains?

The moment Hobbs hops off the corner, Sammy JUMP KNEES! The bell rings, Sammy runs up to JUMP KNEE again! Hobbs staggers around, but he catches Sammy to TOSS him to a corner! Hobbs runs in, Sammy dodges and RAMS in! Sammy ENZIGIRS, Hobbs staggers, and Sammy springboards, FLYING CUTTER! The fans fire up as Hobbs staggers back to his feet.

Hobbs says Sammy wanted this, and he brings Sammy around to DECK him with a haymaker! The fans duel, Hobbs scoops Sammy, APRON POWERSLAM! And again! And again! Hobbs then SLINGS Sammy into railing! The fans fire up as Hobbs says one more time!

Hobbs hauls Sammy back up, for a fake out. Hobbs doesn’t do what the fans want him to do, he does what he wants. Hobbs moves the other set of steps around, brings Sammy back up, and Hobbs whips Sammy hard into railing! Hobbs asks Kevin Kelley what he’s going on about but Kevin isn’t sure Hobbs means. Hobbs tells Kevin to stand up so Kevin does, and then Hobbs demands Kevin hand over his belt. His belt? Hobbs tells him again, give over the belt. Kevin gives in and hands said belt over. Hobbs then takes the belt and uses it to LASH Sammy on the back! Fans are torn but Hobbs LASHES Sammy again!

Sammy writhes, Nigel tells Kevin this is his fault. Hobbs winds up, Sammy dodges the belt to SUPERKICK! And SUPERKICK again! Sammy grabs a chair, and he SMACKS Hobbs with it! And then HEADSHOT! Hobbs flounders against railing but the fans fire up as Sammy stalks him. Sammy tosses Hobbs the chair to KICK it into him! Then Sammy cravats, uses the steps, but Hobbs turns the cutter into a TOSS over the railing! Sammy’s leg clips the top, but Hobbs hauls him back up and over! But Sammy slips free, and CUTTERS to the steps!! Sammy gets the belt now and he LASHES Hobbs in return!

Sammy then goes looking under the ring, and he brings out a table! The fans fire up as Sammy sets the table up nearby. Sammy has security move aside, so he can slide that chair off the table and into Hobbs! Sammy then adds another table! If one is good, more must be better! The fans fire up with Sammy as he has those side by side. Hobbs goes to the apron but Sammy climbs up. Sammy aims and leaps, but Hobbs catches him again!! And he SPINEBUSTERS Sammy through the tables!!! All of Springfield, Missouri lose their minds while the ref checks on both men, and Collision goes picture in picture!

Hobbs snarls as he slowly rises up out of the wreckage. Sammy stirs but Hobbs clears out the debris to bring him up. Hobbs HEADBUTTS Sammy and Sammy staggers away. Sammy gets in the ring but Hobbs pursues. Hobbs climbs the corner?! Hobbs then FLYING LARIATS! The Powerhouse proves he can fly, then he covers, TWO!! Sammy survives but Hobbs grinds him into the mat! Hobbs talks trash on Sammy while he fishhooks the nose and pulls on the ear! Hobbs then drags Sammy up, whips him to a corner hard, and Sammy drops to his knees. Hobbs looms over Sammy, eggs him on, and the fans rally up.

Hobbs talks more trash, stands Sammy back up, and Hobbs whips Sammy hard into another corner! Collision returns to single picture as Sammy crawls around. Hobbs looms over Sammy again, slaps him around, and then whips him into another corner! Hobbs runs up, Sammy dodges and Hobbs hits buckles! Sammy uses the corner to help in the torture rack! Fans fire up as Sammy carries Hobbs, and GO TO HOSPITAL!! Cover, TWO?!? Hobbs survives and Sammy is shocked! The fans rally as Sammy hurries to find himself something more. Sammy takes a monitor from the timekeeper!

Sammy brings the equipment into the ring, MONITOR SHOT!! But that’s not enough so Sammy looks around outside. He finds another table! The fans are thunderous as table number three is put in the ring. Sammy hurries after Hobbs but Hobbs LARIATS Sammy inside-out! Hobbs storms around, grabs the table for his own and sets that up near a corner. Hobbs goes back for Sammy as the fans rally up, and Hobbs hauls Sammy up. Sammy JAWBREAKERS back! Hobbs wobbles, but Sammy SUPERKICKS! Hobbs still wobbles, so Sammy springboards and FLYING- NO, Hobbs catches him again! WORLD’S STRONGEST SLAM!! Cover, TWO!!!

Sammy survives and now Hobbs is furious! Hobbs runs to BOOT Sammy down! Hobbs goes out while Sammy flops off the apron. Hobbs looks around under the ring, and he brings out a fourth table! The fans fire up as Hobbs brings this one to the ramp side. Hobbs sets that up, stomps Sammy to keep him down, then he goes to fetch a fifth table! The fans are thunderous, this might be the most tables in a non-table match! Hobbs hauls Sammy up, scoops him, and aims, but Sammy slips free to POST Hobbs first! Sammy fires up again while Hobbs staggers around. Sammy chugs a fan’s beer, then SMASHES Hobbs with the bottle!

The fans fire up as Hobbs ends up on the tables! The fans give Sammy another beer, to SMASH it on Hobbs again! Sammy then goes looking under the ring, and he brings out a LADDER! The fans are loving it, because now we’ve entered TLC territory! Sammy gets that ladder in the ring while the fans lose their minds! Sammy moves table number three outta the way so he can stand his ladder up. And it’s a big ladder! Fans chant “Please Don’t Die!” because this is extra crazy even for Sammy! Sammy climbs to the second highest rung, takes aim, and shoutout to Jeff Hardy! SUPER SWANTON BOMB through the tables!!!

The fans lose their minds all over again as the ref checks Sammy. Sammy gets Hobbs up and into the ring and the fans fire up again. “This is Awesome!” as Sammy takes table number three and sets it back up! Hobbs flounders, Sammy pushes him onto that table and punches him down. Sammy then goes to the corner, which is comparatively short, but Hobbs shoves the ref into Sammy!! Sammy is stuck on the top rope and Hobbs snarls as he storms up after him! Hobbs brings Sammy up for the scoop! WORLD’S STRONGEST SLAM THROUGH THE TABLE!! Cover, Hobbs wins!!

Winner: “Powerhouse” Will Hobbs, by pinfall

All that damage done to Hobbs and he still took the win! Is there no stopping the Don Callis Family with the Powerhouse behind it?

 

The Blackpool Combat Club speaks.

Jon Moxley is with Claudio Castagnoli as he shares a story. “When Claudio first comes to America, he shows up at the gym to train with William Regal and Dave Taylor. When Dave pulls up, Claudio’s sitting on the front step, there’s no cars around. Dave says, ‘How’d you get here?’ Claudio says, ‘I walked.’ Dave says, ‘From the airport? 20+ miles?’ Claudio says, ‘Yeah.'” That was day one. You think 20 minutes is a lot to Claudio? It’s nothing, he’s a freak. Moxley is a freak in a different way, needing to get hit in the face a couple times just to wake up. And while Moxley’s not a sprinter, he can run all day and all night.

You will never win a war of attrition with the BCC. When it’s a game of who can endure, you have no chance. But the BCC don’t get paid by the hour and they don’t wanna wrestle like they do. So time limit draws for them are unsatisfactory. So congrats, FTR, you pissed them off! Good job. But if you wanna challenge them for Revolution, you wanna pay homage to tag team wrestling in one of the wrestling Meccas, Greensboro, North Carolina, they accept. The four of them will show the world that all that history is just that. This is 2024, this is AEW, the BCC are the elite of the elite, and this sport evolves.

Claudio, what’s Moxley thinking of right now? Well, tag team wrestling, Midnight Express, Rock ‘n’ Roll Express, Arn ‘n’ Tully, Crockett Promotions, its entire history. And about FTR, how they look to the past, how they wanna bring back the past. The BCC looks to the future. The BCC creates the style and the wrestling that they wanna see today. So FTR, if you wanna live in the past, fine. But if you wanna step into the future, that path is through them! And all you have to do is just be better than Moxley & Claudio.

Moxley also keeps thinking, that can’t be all that FTR had. Because it feels like they unloaded all their heavy artillery, every magazine, while the BCC barely pulled the trigger. If FTR want to be big names in Greensboro, then they’ll have to swim in deep, deep waters. Claudio tells FTR to bring the whole bag of tricks, because they’ll need it. The match is set, but just how far will both teams go to settle the score?

BCC said FTR live in the past, but they used an old school finisher to win! Cash gets the mic now as the fans chant for FTR, and Cash says, “So a few weeks ago, Jon Moxley said, ‘Step up, and get stepped on.'” The fans boo that, but Cash tells Moxley, FTR is like a couple roaches. It’ll take much more than getting stepped to kill them! The fans cheer that! So that said, if BCC has anything more to say, they know where FTR’s gonna be. Dax tells Moxley & Claudio that he heard everything they had to say. They talked about differing styles and different eras, how FTR are throwbacks and the past is what they care about.

“That’s not what this is about. Moxley, you’ve been here since almost the beginning. For almost five years, you’ve been the king of AEW. This is your castle! This is your house, Mox! And I see you, Mox. And I see Claudio, and I see Bryan. I see you walk around the back, and people cower and they fear and they drop their eyes because they’re afraid of you. I think the reason you’re pissed off is you found a couple guys who ain’t scared of you.” The fans cheer that, too! FTR ain’t scared. But if Moxley is the king and this is his castle, it’s been said that to be a king, you gotta kill a king. So Revolution, FTR comes for the king’s head. #TopGuysOut!

The fans fire up as Dax & Cash are ready to be more elite than the elite of the elite! Will either team be left standing after the Revolution?

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

Renee Paquette is with The Galaxy’s Greatest, The Babe with the Power and #BigStoke, bringing up the “choice words” from Skye Blue & Julia Hart last night on Rampage. What is their reaction? Stokely wants to start by saying he doesn’t appreciate that hostility. What happened last week, he apologized for. Did he put it on social media at like 3AM and then delete it five minutes later? Absolutely! But the past is the past. Stat said it best, they worry about the future, and that includes those two- Willow says think before you speak, Stokely. “Ho…ly cow, you got something to say.”

And Kris points out Skye is always looking for a fight, so maybe, since they’re 1-1, they go 1v1 next week and Kris beats dat ass. This eclectic trio is ready to fight it out, but will they be able to tear down The House of Black?

Backstage interview with Bryan Danielson.

Lexi Nair is with the American Dragon ahead of his main event match tonight against Jun Akiyama. Some consider this a dream match. Bryan says yes, but what Lexi didn’t say and should’ve said is that this the legendary Jun Akiyama. This is a man Bryan respects as one of the greatest wrestlers in history! Someone who is Eddie Kingston’s hero! And Eddie will be on commentary tonight, watching Bryan wrestle one of the greatest wrestlers, and beat him. Bryan vows to defeat the man that is Eddie’s hero. Bryan wants to make it clear, he respects Jun Akiyama and every single thing he has done. But do you know who Bryan does NOT respect? Eddie Kingston.

Bryan says Eddie just made this thing, that their match at Revolution is about a handshake. That if Eddie wins, Bryan has to shake Eddie’s hand and show him respect, and he thinks that’ll kill Bryan inside. And maybe it will. Because Bryan does NOT respect Eddie, and do you know why? Because if Eddie was asked to do a promo, do you know how he’d do it? Lexi’s interviewed him, right? And what would he say? “Oh, the boom! Oh the lights! Oh, you’ve got shoes on! Oh!” Then he’d say this, that and whatever, storm off and that’s it. He is NOT a professional, has NEVER been a professional!

Bryan has known Eddie for 20 YEARS, and Eddie is someone who had more potential than anybody Bryan has ever met, and he WASTED it! WASTED it until just this last year! But not only does Bryan not respect Eddie, Eddie’s waste of potential just pisses Bryan off. That is why Bryan will win against Eddie at Revolution for the Continental Triple Crown. The American Dragon wants to destroy the Mad King, but will he start with the Japanese legend?

My Thoughts:

A really good Collision here, lots of good story build for both Revolution and just in general. Great opening match with the No Disqualification match, but I’m surprised Hobbs won after all the stuff Sammy was doing. I mean, that’s good for Hobbs, he really should be winning things. Maybe it’s also to build Hobbs up so that when the Don Callis Family ends up fighting Ospreay & Fletcher, Ospreay & Fletcher are made even bigger deals when they beat Hobbs & Takeshita. Good win for Rosa and really good win for Deeb, both are going strong at perhaps just the right time. Deeb also had a really good promo, both should definitely be challenging for titles after Revolution going towards Double or Nothing.

Great trios match for Bang Bang Scissor Gang, and of course there was a moment of dysfunction where White gets the tag and not Billy. BBSG still wins, but I’m more surprised by Caster losing the flow on his rap. If that was legit, I feel bad for him, but maybe he wrote himself into a corner with “red” and the rhymes being bad (something something head, something something dead). I mean, he did just say he and management argue, maybe he held himself back because he didn’t want Tony Khan upset over blatantly naughty rhymes. And also, despite me wanting them to actually go for more gold, it feels like we’re just a moment away from BBSG breaking up and fighting for all the trios titles.

Great match from Bryan Keith and Malakai Black for the hell of it, and it gives Malakai a solid singles win. When Malakai hasn’t had one of those in awhile, that’s only because he hasn’t had a singles match in a long time. A little surprising Mark Briscoe didn’t get away with his ambush. He could’ve just bailed out when Buddy & Brody showed up but I guess that wouldn’t be in-character for Mark. Maybe Keith will be an ally for Mark against The House of Black since FTR is a bit busy right now. Speaking of which, great tag match of FTR VS STP and of course FTR wins. Good promo from BCC to set up the rematch at Revolution, I feel like they should make a point that the time limit isn’t 20 minutes but I can’t even remember if PPVs have time limits on matches.

And great tie-in of BCC with the main event tonight. Bryan VS Jun was a great match, Eddie was great on commentary because he knew Jun’s moveset and style so he was saying what was coming. Bryan won, of course, adding another Triple Crown Champion to the list since he’s coming after Eddie’s Triple Crown. I had a feeling Bryan was going to disrespect Jun, but it was only because Jun told him to respect Eddie. Great brawl to set up Eddie & FTR VS BCC for Dynamite, that’ll make for a strong go-home going towards Revolution.

My Score: 8.7/10

PLAY BY PLAY

Trios Triple Threat: Private Party & Matt Sydal VS Top Flight & Action Andretti VS Bryan Keith, Komander & Penta El Zero Miedo!

With all the trios titles belonging to the Bang Bang Scissor Gang, many others are trying their hands at the trios game. Will Isiah Kassidy, Marq Quen and the Zen Assassin open their third eyes? Will Dante, Darius & The Sight to See be flying high? Or will the Bounty Hunter, the AAA Cruiserweight Champion and The Man with No Fear steal the spotlight from them all?

In this form of Triple Threat, only two trios are legal at one time, so Action steps up to stare down Sydal. The fans rally up as the two talk some smack, and they circle. They tie up, go around, and Sydal headlocks for a takeover. Action stands up but Sydal hits another takeover. Sydal then snapmares but Action handsprings through! Fans cheer and the two go again. Sydal tilt-o-whirls to RANA, but Action handsprings through again! Action dusts himself off, but Sydal runs up. Action wrenches, CHOPS, and then knuckle locks to go up and up and FLYING ARM-DRAG! Fans fire up as Action DROPKICKS Sydal down!

Action kips up and smiles while Top Flight talks some smack to Private Party. Action then runs and IMPLODER TORNILLOS onto Sydal! Cover, ONE, but Action tags Darius. They double whip Sydal, but Sydal KICKS and KICKS and SOBATS! Fans fire up with Sydal and he gets a “SHOTS! SHOTS! SHOTS!” chant going. Sydal KICKS Darius’ leg over an dover, but Darius catches him to a pump-handle GUTBUSTER! Then GAMANGIRI! Sydal flounders away, Bryan Keith tags in! Keith runs up but Darius headlocks. Keith powers up and out, Darius RAMS him, but Keith rebounds to BOOT! Darius falls, Kassidy tags in!

The fans rally as Zay dodges Keith, fires “SHOTS! SHOTS! SHOTS!” and then ROCKS Keith. Zay whips, Keith reverses, but Zay goes up and Quen tags in. Zay RANAS Keith into Quen’s GAMANGIRI! Then Quen springboards to SPLASH Keith! Cover, TWO! Keith is still in this and he tags out to Penta! The fans fire up as Penta somersaults in, but Quen shows he can somersault, too. The fans rally for “CERO! MIEDO!” Penta tells Quen to listen, CERO! MIEDO! Queen says okay, but “What do we want? SHOTS!” Quen shoves Penta, so Penta takes off the glove. The fans fire up, and Penta makes the pass to Alex Abrahantes!

Penta says again, CERO! MIEDO! Another pie face, but Dante tags in off Quen. Dante shoves Penta but then Komander tags in. Quen jumps on Dante, he and Penta mug him, and then everyone else rushes in! It’s a nine man melee and the ref reprimands them all! Things spill out, Dante and Komander stay in. Dante breaks free to JUMP KNEE, then runs, but Komander dodges! Dante mule kicks, whips, but Komander reverses to hook Dante up, COBRA TWIST, into a tilt-o-whirl RANA! Fans fire up as Dante flounders to a corner. Komander runs corner to corner but Dante dodges! Komander elbows back, then SUPERKICKS!

Dante flounders away, Komander jumps up top, and Komander tightrope walks to ARABIAN PRESS ARM-DRAG! Then a DROPKICK! The fans fire up as Komander covers, TWO! Komander tags Penta before he runs in, but Dante jumps up and over! Penta runs in to SLINGBLADE! And then SLINGBLADE again! Dante staggers up, into a SUPERKICK! Action tags in to springboard, into a SUPERKICK! Private Party sends Darius into barriers! Penta tags Keith, puts Action in a corner, and GAMANGIRIS! Komander runs in, Penta is the step stool for Komander to FLYING FOREARM!

Komander feeds Dante to Keith’s fireman’s carry, USHIGOROSHI! Cover, Zay breaks it! The fans rally, Quen tags in off Keith, and Quen stomps away on Action as Rampage goes picture in picture!

Quen stomps and stomps but the ref counts. Quen lets off to drag Action up and bump him off buckles. Quen runs up to RAM Action, then tags in Zay. Private Party keeps Action trapped, Zay ENZIGIRIS Action down! Zay stomps now, “SHOTS! SHOTS! SHOTS!” Zay lets off to kick-step, then he tags Sydal. They stomp Action, “SHOTS! SHOTS! SHOTS!” Sydal lets off to rally the fans, then he drags Action up. Action throws body shots but Sydal CLUBS him down. Sydal stands Action up again to back suplex, but Action lands out, only for Sydal to HEEL KICK! Tag to Quen and Quen slingshot SENTONS!

Rampage returns to single picture as Quen stomps Action back to the corner. Tag to Zay, Quen snap suplexes Action down for Zay to slingshot SENTON! Zay smirks and then drags Action up. Zay puts Action in the corner, CHOPS, then tags Quen. Private Party double whip Action to ropes, but Action ducks ‘n’ handsprings to DOUBLE BACK ELBOW! The fans fire up as Action and Private Party are all down. Action crawls, Quen grabs at a foot but hot tag to Dante! Dante rallies on Quen, whips, but Quen reveres. Quen runs in at the corner, Dante slips out to the apron and Quen hits buckles. Dante then goes up and around to GAMANGIRI!

Dante springboards to CROSSBODY! Cover, Keith breaks it! Darius runs up to CHOP Keith, but Keith ROCKS Darius! Keith runs, but Darius follows to HOTSHOT BULLDOG! And then GAMANGIRI! Darius steps in, but into a KNEE! Keith runs up to SHOTGUN Darius out of the ring! Keith pursues, but Action is there to go after Keith. Action fires forearms, Dante turns around to see Zay. Zay dodges Dante to then FLY out onto Keith, Darius & Action! Dante whips Sydal up and out but Komander tags in. Komander BOOTS Sydal, Dante BLASTS Penta, and Komander gets Sydal in an APRON ROMERO SPECIAL!

Dante builds speed and he FLIES over those two to wipe out Keith and his own teammates! Komander lets Sydal go, Sydal mule kicks Komander down! Sydal goes up the corner, to APRON METEORA! But Penta’s right there! APRON FEAR FACTOR!! Penta rises but Zay springboards, triangle jump STUNNER! Quen gets in, Zay gives him the boost to go up and up and SUPER SWANTON onto everyone else!! The fans are thunderous and Zay takes a bow. Zay then waits as Quen puts Penta in. Zay puts Penta up top, GAMANGIRIS, and then GIN ‘N’ JUICE DESTROYER!! Penta turned things right around on Private Party!

Keith runs in, Quen BOOTS him first, but Keith roars! Keith RISING HEADBUTTS to send Quen down! Penta sets up as Komander builds speed, BOOSTED TORNILLO onto the cluster outside!! The fans are thunderous again but Sydal rushes Penta! Penta sidesteps, Sydal springboards, but into a SUPERKICK! And then Penta tucks him back in, FEAR FACTOR!! Cover, Penta’s team wins!

Winners: Penta El Zero Miedo, Komander & Bryan Keith, by pinfall

A huge win for this eccentric trio, will they be hunting down The Acclaimed & Daddy Ass? Or will they try for the Bullet Club Gold’s gold instead?

 

BREAKING NEWS for Collision!

After taking a week off for the NBA All-Star Game, Saturday nights are once again good for a fight. Thunder Rosa and Serena Deeb each return to in-ring action, will these two rivals keep pace in the chase for gold? And we just saw Bryan Keith win big in the trios match, but he’ll jump right back into singles action against Malakai Black! Will the Bounty Hunter get another big win in his hunt for opportunity? Or will the Dark Father prove the House Always Wins?

 

Backstage interview with The Outcasts.

Renee Paquette is with Saraya and Harley and isn’t sure how much they’ve been watching Ruby Soho & Angelo Parker, but those two are off on their path of romance. Saraya DGAF about Soho x Parker!! She has things going on, too! That traitor isn’t getting under her skin even a little bit! Harley calms Saraya down, and they do breathing exercises. Why’s Harley flicking her tongue when she does that…? But Saraya wants to talk business. Y’know how her family is big famous wrestling royalty in the UK? Well, see, she has a special announcement. Her brother, “Zodiac” Zak Knight, has just become All Elite!!

Saraya has her brother walk into frame, and yeah, he’s scary, right? Zak could’ve been yours, Ruby! Saraya was gonna set Ruby up with him, “the most eligible bachelor in the Norwich area!” And Ruby messed that up just to be with that greasy, slimy, whatever Parker is! Harley says yeah! Just look at Zak! Isn’t he hot? He’s so hot! The whole Knight family is hot! Saraya is a bit taken aback by that, and she sprays water at Harley. Harley just embraces it so that doesn’t make for a good deterrent anymore… Saraya says it’s okay, Harley’s about to be fixed. But Saraya also promises, “Things are about to get really spicy around here.”

The Outcasts head out, and Zak’s scowl scares Renee a bit. Will Ruby & Parker regret making their romance public?

 

The Young Bucks VS Jonny Lyons & Cappuccino Jones!

Matthew & Nicholas Jackson used, or rather abused, their power as Executive Vice Presidents of AEW to have an AEW World Tag Team Championship match at Revolution. However, they are also very upset at the continued disrespect. Will that really stop after they take their frustrations out on these young indie guys?

The teams sort out and Nick starts against Lyons. Nick doesn’t even bother taking off his trilby (or is it a fedora?) as he circles with Lyons. Nick calls for a knuckle lock but then kicks low and CLUBS away! The fans boo but Nick soaks it up. Nick whips Lyons, Lyons reverses but Matt tags in. Nick hurdles then whips Lyons, Lyons ducks Nick but Matt CLOBBERS him! Matt takes off his suit jacket to then drags Lyons up. Matt TOSSES Lyons to the corner, Lyons tags in Cappuccino! The fans fire up for Cappuccino as he circles with Matt. Matt mockingly applauds, also calls for a knuckle lock, but also kicks low!

Matt CLUBS away on Cappuccino, just like Nick, but then Matt cools off. Matt brings Cappuccino up to throw hands, whips him to ropes, but fakes the superkick to DDT instead! Fans boo but Matt drags Cappuccino up. Matt whips Cappuccino to the corner, he and Nick coordinate to LARIAT GAMANGIRI COMBO! Tag to Nick, he BLASTS Lyons, and then Matt whips Nick in so he can go up and over and PENALTY KICK Lyons! Matt stomps Cappuccino, stands him up, then HOTSHOTS him into Nick’s DISCUS LARIAT! Tag back to Matt and he drags Cappuccino up. The fans rally as hard as they can, but Cappuccino gets the MELTZER DRIVER!! Cover, The Bucks win!

Winners: The Young Bucks, by pinfall

Well, turns out they call that the “Tony Khan Driver” now, seems they don’t care to be associated with the Wrestling Observer anymore. But then they feel disrespected when the ref hesitates to raise their hands? Nick gets the mic to tell Paul Turner that when he raises their hand, what name did he use? Did he really just call him “Nick?” That is disrespectful! Next time, it’s a fine! And Schiavone, please, join them in the ring. Fans boo and Schiavone isn’t sure what to do. But they are EVPs, he doesn’t really have a choice… Schiavone joins the Bucks, and Nick promises they won’t harm him.

Last week, Schiavone was in the ring with them and Nick swears, he tripped on his own shoe, knocked into Schiavone and that is why Schiavone fell over. Nick wants to make it clear, and he apologizes for that. Matt says to show how sorry they are, and how much they love him, they got him a $25 Amazon gift card. They are sorry, Schiavone, but that isn’t the only thing they’re sorry about. See, they’re also sorry that, uh… they can’t get the bloodstains left by Darby Allin & Sting out of their $5,000 suits. Schiavone says yes, that is a problem… Will they rescind the $1,000 fine on them by any chance?

Sorry, no, they can’t do that. But there are a couple things that they won’t be sorry about. The first thing is beating the hell out of Darby for all the trash he talked about them publicly. The second thing, and this is one Schiavone will really like, is them taking Sting and pinning him to the mat, saying goodbye to one of the most legendary careers in all of pro-wrestling! Fans boo but Matt continues to tell “Stinger,” call them Father Time. Because just like time, the Bucks are undefeated. And just like time, the Bucks are coming for Sting! “Now everybody, let’s have a great show! There’s a great line-up on the way!

“Tony’s over there at the desk, he’s one of the best play by play guys in the business! C’mon, everybody! AEW chant on three? One, two, three! A E DUB! A E DUB! Alright, let’s go~!” Matt fist bumps Schiavone, then leaves with Nick. The farce continues, but will there be nothing even Darby & Sting can do about it? Or will the Icon still find a way to retire on top?

 

Tony Schiavone is back in the ring.

Rampage returns and he welcomes a young man who has had a busy year. He’s a brand new father but fighting the Don Callis Family, it’s Sammy Guevara! Tulsa cheers as The Spanish God heads to the ring, back on his feet after the ambush by Will Hobbs. Schiavone shakes hands with Sammy, and Schiavone congratulates Sammy on last week’s win against Jeff Hardy. But now, to the comments Callis had for Sammy just last Wednesday Night Dynamite. The insults he hurled at Sammy, Callis clearly has it out for him.

Sammy says it is a mix of emotions. Last week, he got in the ring with a childhood hero in Jeff Hardy. But on the other hand, he’s pissed off because Hobbs put him through a table! Sammy tells Hobbs that Sammy always knew Hobbs had endless potential, and superstardom written all over him. But he can do that all on his own! Hobbs doesn’t need Callis sucking the life out of Hobbs’ career! Hobbs is a star all on his own, but it’s too late now for him to figure that out because he’s pissed Sammy off. So enough talk! Get your ass out here so they can fight! The Don Callis Family music plays, but it’s only Callis walking out here.

Callis has a mic to taunt Sammy, “Look, everybody! It’s Mr. Mom! You’re back at work after nursing the child. I mean, the only thing you’ve done of any note in the last six months is reproduce, and you shouldn’t be proud of that. Dogs do it. Even these people can do it!” Fans boo but Callis says Sammy used to be a great athlete. He used to be a guy Callis wanted in the Family. But now, Sammy has become like so many others: a weak, pathetic little cuck! Sammy doesn’t get what Callis is doing repeating himself, but then HOBBS gets in from the crowd side! Sammy dodges, SUPERKICKS, and Hobbs bails out!

Sammy eggs Hobbs on, then builds speed, to FLY! Direct hit and down goes Hobbs! Sammy says bang bang, and he gets a chair! Sammy winds up to SMACK Hobbs on the back! Hobbs hobbles but gets in the ring. Sammy pursues, aims again, and he JAMS Hobbs low! Then SMACKS him on the back! Sammy throws off the jacket, waits on Hobbs to turn around, but Hobbs fights off the torture rack to LARIAT Sammy inside out!! Callis smiles as he tells Hobbs to end this! SPINEBUSTER! And then another SPINEBUSTER! Hobbs is gonna do Sammy like he did Jericho! Hobbs hauls Sammy up, scoops and WORLD’S STRONGEST SLAM!!

Hobbs stands over Sammy and Callis applauds. The Powerhouse has all but pulverized Sammy, and Callis even gets his shots in! Will the Don Callis Family make sure there’s nothing left of Sammy to go home to his wife and daughter by the end of this?

 

Skye Blue speaks.

“I had that match. I had it won, if it wasn’t for that bald headed, sad, poor excuse of a man, I would’ve had it and I deserved it. I had that win and I deserved it, on my own.” Julia Hart calms her down and says it’s okay. They will have their comeuppance. And while seeking their revenge, they will dig three graves: one for Willow, for Kris, and for Stokely. But who does Skye want first? Whoever will step up. Whoever has the balls enough to step up and fight her! Will the Chicago Skye continue to darken until she blots out the light?

 

Mariah May VS Anna Jay!

Toni Storm’s superfan still wants to prove herself to her hero, but that really depends on if Storm is even watching this. Will Mariah finally have Storm’s approval? Or will the Queenslayer still be the Star of the Show?

The bell rings and the two circle. The fans rally, the two tie up, and they go along the ropes. They end up in a corner, get out of a corner, and Mariah pulls hair. The ref counts, Mariah lets off and shoves Anna, but Anna doesn’t budge! Anna smirks as she and Mariah rest and tie up. Anna waistlocks, shoves, but Mariah slides to sweep the legs! Mariah runs but Anna dodges the dropkick! Anna runs to BLOCKBUSTER! Anna then ROCKS Mariah, whips her, but Mariah reverses to ROCK Anna! Mariah bumps Anna off buckles, then puts some stank on the DOUBLE CHOP! Mariah brings Anna around to bump off buckles, and CHOP again!

Mariah eggs Anna on so Anna CHOPS! Mariah CHOPS! Mariah bumps Anna off buckles, then digs her boot in as Rampage goes picture in picture!

The ref counts, Mariah lets off at 4, and she brings Anna into ropes to hook her up. The ref counts as Mariah chinlocks Anna against ropes, but she lets off at 4. Mariah kisses Anna on the cheek, then runs to DROPKICK Anna in the back! Anna falls out of the ropes and Mariah soaks up the heat. Mariah stands Anna up, runs, and SHOTGUNS her down! Anna flounders out of the ring and Mariah takes a bow. Mariah then goes out to stalk Anna, and she brings Anna around the way. Mariah puts Anna against barriers to CHOP her! And SPANK her! Mariah laughs while Anna hobbles away. Mariah pursues to then CHOP again!

Anna is stinging while Mariah dusts herself off. Mariah hears the count but she whips Anna into the barriers first! Mariah then leaves Anna behind and “apologizes” to the ref. Mariah goes back out after Anna, soaks up the heat, and vogues for the camera. But Anna throws body shots and CHOPS! And CHOPS! Mariah CHOPS back! Mariah pushes Anna into the ring, takes her time posing before going back in, and Rampage goes to break.

Rampage returns as Anna whips Mariah to a corner. Mariah slips out to the apron, avoids Anna’s haymaker, and ROUNDHOUSES in return! Anna staggers, Mariah shouts and climbs up, but Anna ROCKS her! Anna then gets space, runs up, and HEEL KICKS! Anna then wrenches the arms, ICONOCLASM! Cover, TWO! Anna grows frustrated but she drags Mariah up and hooks the arms. Mariah blocks the Gory Especial to backslide hard, TWO! Anna sits up, into a KNEE THRUST! Mariah says it’s time to end this, and she hauls Anna back up. Fireman’s carry, but Anna slips free! QUEENSLAYER!!

Anna hops on as a backpack, but Mariah RAMS her into buckles! Mariah is free, and she puts Anna up top. Mariah DOUBLE CHOPS, then gets some space. Mariah runs up to STRATUSPHERE! Anna flounders away and Mariah shouts out Storm! Mariah runs up, but the hip attack misses! Anna runs up to kick, dragon sleeper, and BACKSTABBER! Cover, TWO?!? Mariah survives and Anna grows frustrated! The fans rally as Anna sits Mariah up, into the QUEEN- NO, Mariah blocks the sleeper! Anna fights through to have the QUEENSLAYER! Mariah flails, reaches out, but she BITES Anna’s arm!!

The ref reprimands but Mariah is free all the same! Fireman’s carry, MAYDAY DRIVER!! Cover, Mariah wins!

Winner: Mariah May, by pinfall

One thing is for sure, Mariah is just as looney as her role model! Will she follow in Storm’s footsteps to become a champion in AEW?

 

Backstage interview with Ruby Soho & Angelo Parker.

Renee is with the lovey-dovey couple, how’d the date go? Ruby says she felt it went really well. Parker is relieved, he didn’t wanna say it first and be wrong. It was incredible, everything he hoped it’d be, he had a great time. Renee points out that in the opposite direction, Saraya is becoming unraveled. If they didn’t hear her comments earlier, she had some rather choice words. And apparently, she was going to hook Ruby up with her brother? Ruby says that’s weird and Renee agrees. Plus, Zak is more like a poor man’s Tom Hardy, big pass. Parker isn’t sure being Norwich’s Most Eligible Bachelor is a bad of honor, either. And honestly, “wrestling royalty?” That’s a stretch.

Ruby tells Saraya that she said she doesn’t care, that Ruby doesn’t get under her skin, but here’s the reality: for the last year, Saraya told Ruby that Ruby needed Saraya, when it was really the other way around. Saraya is sad and unhappy without Ruby. And say all you want about Ruby, but talk bad on Parker and that’s when they have problems. Ruby said she needed space, and in that space, she found something real. And Saraya may be sick of hearing it, of seeing it, but hey, why not invite everyone along? Bring the cameras, bring the crew, and they’ll shove this right down Saraya’s throat!

Parker’s pretty fired up. He says Ruby’s hot when she’s mad. Ruby thanks him for the compliment, and the two head out to get some drinks. Will they make Saraya so sick of love she’ll never dare speak their names again?

 

Roderick Strong w/ The Undisputed Kingdom VS Jake Hager w/ Hornsby!

The Undisputed Kingdom were bullying Orange Cassidy, and apparently the Big Hurt didn’t like seeing that. Will Oklahoma’s own break the Savior of the Backbreaker? Or will Roddy be too strong even for the All-American Sooner?

The bell rings and the fans rally for Hager and Hornsby. Roddy and Hager circle, tie up, and Hager powers Roddy to a corner. Roddy slips free, shoves Hager, and fans boo. The two reset, they circle again, and Roddy gets around to waistlock. Roddy then turns Hager around to CHOP, but Hager doesn’t budge! Fans fire up and Roddy is a bit scared, so Roddy bails out. The Kingdom pep talk Roddy while the ring count climbs. Roddy hurries in, dodges Hager, then things speed up. Roddy leaps but Hager catches him! Hager puts Roddy in a corner, runs up but into a BOOT! Roddy CHOPS, but Hager catches it?!

Fans fire up as Hager TOSSES Roddy, then CHOPS him! And CHOPS him again! Hager whips corner to corner hard, runs up, but Rodd bails out again! Hager snarls, goes out after Roddy, and stalks him around the way. Matt Menard’s on commentary, he says watch out for “these bozos,” Taven & Bennett. Hager stares them down as he walks past, then fires off on Roddy! Roddy tumbles, Hager puts him in the ring, but Roddy KICKS Hager in the ropes! Roddy CLUBS away on Hager, then tells Tulsa to shut up! Roddy runs, but into a BOOT! Hager storms up, puts Roddy in a corner, and then TOSSES him across the ring!

The fans fire up as Hager LARIATS Roddy down! Cover, TWO! Roddy stays in this but Hager digs his knees into Roddy! Roddy flails and reaches out but Hager traps the arms. The ref counts as that knee gets a bit high on the chest and into the neck area. Hager lets off, but he puts Roddy in a corner to fire off body shots! Roddy staggers away as Rampage goes picture in picture.

Hornsby cheers Hager on as he clotheslines Roddy in the corner! Hager ROCKS Roddy while talking trash to The Kingdom, then he hauls Roddy up top. Hager climbs, brings Roddy up, but Roddy clubs at Hager’s leg. Roddy throws body shots, slips underneath, and then kicks the legs out! Hager ends up stuck in the ropes, and Roddy runs to STRONG KNEE him in the back! Hager falls and Roddy stomps a mudhole in! The ref counts, Roddy lets off to flex, but only The Kingdom cheers him on. Roddy stands on Hager in the corner, lets off as the ref counts, but then he springboard stomps Hager down!

Roddy gets the legs and has Hager in ropes, for the ROPE GUILLOTINE! Hager sputters, Roddy covers, TWO! Roddy keeps Hager down by dropping knees, then he digs a knee into Hager’s back. Roddy has the chinlock but Hager endures and fights up. The fans rally, Hager throws body shots, and then Hager runs, but into a DROPKICK! Roddy hurries to cover, TWO! Roddy drags Hager from ropes, stomps him, then paces around while The Kingdom talks trash on Hager. Roddy glares at Hornsby but Hornsby dares him to do something! Roddy goes back to Hager to rain down fists! Roddy then lets off to put Hager in a corner.

Taven seems to be talking trash on Hornsby, probably calling him a Melvin like does everyone. Roddy stands Hager up to CHOP! And CHOP! And then he scoops to BACKBREAKER! Cover, TWO! Roddy keeps Hager down with another chinlock, again digging in a knee. Hager endures, fights up, and Rampage returns to single picture. Hager throws body shots and is free, but Roddy CLUBS, KNEES and runs, but into a lift! Roddy sunset flips, Hager stays up and he drags Roddy up to TOSS to a corner! Roddy BOOTS, ENZIGIRIS and then OLYMPIC SLAMS! Cover, TWO! Roddy grows frustrated as Hager stays in this.

Hornsby smacks the steel steps to rally the fans, and now Bennett glares at him. And then Taven comes in from the other side, Hornsby realizes he’s in a 2v1 situation here. Hornsby wants them to calm down, but then he pulls out a SUPER CONFETTI POPPER! It goes off and Hornsby says take that! The Kingdom still storms up on him, but here comes Orange Cassidy! The AEW International Champion is returning the favor to Hager by helping out his buddy. The Kingdom says fine, bring it then! Cassidy says hold on, he has THE HAT! He throws the purple bucket hat into Hager, and Hager loves that hat!

Cassidy then dodges Taven, shoves him into Bennett, and down they go! Cassidy rains down fists, and Hager powers up with the hat!! Roddy runs up but Hager LARIATS! And LARIATS! And OVERHEAD BELLY2BELLY SUPLEXES! The fans are thunderous as Hager says, “I like this hat!!” Then Hager runs corner to corner, goes up and up, and hits the HAGER BOMB! Cover, TWO!! Roddy survives but Hager snarls! But Taven sends Cassidy into railing! The 2v1 has gotten the better of Cassidy, and Roddy JAWBREAKERS Hager! Hager staggers, Roddy storms up, OLYMP- NO, Hager slips free to GUT RWENCH BOMB!! Cover, TWO!!

Roddy survives, but Hager has the ANKLE LOCK!! Roddy flails, rolls over, and he kicks from below! Hager still holds on, ANKLE LOCK! Roddy flails, reaches out, but Taven throws Cassidy into the ring! The ref is distracted by that, Taven & Bennett get on the apron but Hager CLOBBERS them both! Roddy STRONG KNEES!! Hager falls, Roddy covers, Roddy wins!

Winner: Roderick Strong, by pinfall

Despite having back-up and the power-up, Hager still couldn’t beat the numbers game! Roddy is rolling towards Revolution, will he be taking the International title away from Cassidy?


My Thoughts:

A very good Rampage that was again booked to have story. The Bucks of course won their match, but they did what I was hoping they’d do in changing up their style. They purposefully didn’t use superkicks, and then they are apparently changing up the names of their finishers as if to say Heel Bucks don’t care about their YouTube show or Dave Meltzer. Their post match promo was good, too, but it didn’t really add too much more to the heat they’ve already got. And pretty good promos out of this Ruby VS Saraya story. I thought Ruby VS Saraya was just going to be the thing, but now it feels like they might give us a Mixed Tag of Ruby & Parker VS Saraya & Zak.

Really good Trios Triple Threat to open, and I love that it was Keith, Komander & Penta winning rather than taking a loss to the established-ish trios. The feud of Private Party and Top Flight really needs to be settled by just those teams anyway. Pretty good promo from Sammy Guevara to call out the Don Callis Family, but of course it turned into Hobbs beating Sammy up. Good promo from Skye and Julia, I really thought AEW would’ve figured out a contender to the TBS Championship by now, but maybe that’ll happen very quickly in the next week. Really good match from Mariah May and Anna Jay, and a really good win for Mariah. But you can bet Storm didn’t pay attention to this at all, just like the other times.

And very good main event from Hager VS Roddy, with The Kingdom of course overbooking this. The bit with Hornsby was fun, and Cassidy showing up was also a logical move. I like that Hager’s hat is now the same as Cassidy putting hands in his pockets, but of course Hager lost out. Roddy needs momentum going into the title match so he had to win this one, and he probably just waits it out while Cassidy gets worn down. But at this point, it’ll probably still take a lot of cheating for Roddy to win the International title and bring it into The Undisputed Kingdom.

My Score: 8.7/10
