Someone pulls up to the arena.

It’s Ricky Starks! Absolute gets out of the car, gets his bags, and shows off the King of Harts belt. “Tonight, we’re celebrating in Absolute style, baby!” Will Starks be having fun here tonight? Or will someone look to crash the party?


Tony Schiavone is in the ring.

He has Newark open up with a celebration, let’s bring out the winner of the 2023 Men’s Owen Hart Cup, RICKY STARKS! Fans cheer as Starks makes his entrance, bringing his bag and belt with him to the ring. Starks even gets pyro for the occasion! So much pyro! Too much pyro? Is it all the pyro AEW brought tonight? Ricky steps into the ring with Schiavone and Schiavone says congratulations. Starks won the cup, the belt, and is the King of Harts. But not without controversy, where Starks held the ropes to win. Fans still chant “You Deserve It!” and Starks smiles. Starks says, “I’ve never agreed more with a city in my life until tonight.”

But before he addresses what Schiavone is bringing up, he wants us all to know, “What’s in the bag? What’s in the bag, Ricky?” Glad they asked! NOTHING, he just wants to show off the new Louis Vuitton he bought after winning the tournament! Fans cheer that, and Starks then says, “HOT DAMN I’m the man!” Now he knows people are talking about the controversy. But what does it matter? Twenty years from now, they’ll be asking Starks how many wins, not how he wins. And if anyone else was in Starks’ shoes–which are Prada, by the way–they’d have done the exact same thing. So the way Starks sees it, he got in there and got the job done the only way he knows how: any means necessary!

Don’t talk to him about right and wrong, but about how he is stylish, and sexy, and how he’s the man! But what about the disrespect when Starks blew right by Jushin Thunder Liger when he grabbed the cup? No disrespect, Liger is a legend, but Starks is Absolute. Now, here’s something Starks wants to talk about: everyone wants to make comparisons. NO, Starks is himself. He is happy for the fans who say Starks should be a Young Pillar, it is a great sentiment, but nuh-uh, Starks don’t wanna be no damn pillar! He stands on his own as Absolute, and you tell him how many Owens have the Four Pillars won? EXACTLY!

But wait, here comes CM Punk. No theme song, no fanfare, he just goes right to the ring. Punk stands with Schiavone and Starks, and fans are torn. Punk says he isn’t here to rain on parades, this is Starks’ celebration. Punk knew everyone here in New Jersey probably thought he’d storm out here, shouting and screaming. But he’s not mad. If he’s mad, it’s at himself. In fact, looking at Starks, Punk is kinda proud. Fans are confused but Punk cannot stand here as an honest man and say he’s never cheated. And he certainly can’t stand in New Jersey and act like the fans never cheated, either. Fans boo, but who knows if that’s true.

Punk says maybe if the Jersey Devils had Starks’ wherewithal, they would’ve made it outta the first round. Fans boo more, but we all know Punk is a Blackhawks guy. But in all seriousness, Punk can live with the L. But can Starks live with the W, knowing how he did it? That he can’t beat Punk clean? Punk leaves Starks with that, and Starks tells him to hold on! Punk, man, Starks’ bag is as empty as Punk’s red bag. That gets Punk to come back! Punk stares Starks down and fans get back on his side in this. Punk tells Starks, “You wanna shot at what’s in the bag, Ricky? Or are you like Lil’ Max and just don’t want me to have it?”

Punk is the REAL AEW World Champion. Fans are torn there, but then out walks Christian Cage & Luchasaurus! Christian wants everyone to hold on, because they are contractually obligated as TNT Champion to appear in front of the live audience. But this is taking a little too long for Christian’s liking. He doesn’t wanna spend any more time in New Jersey than he has to, and they’re called “Dirty Jersey” for a reason, “you sweathogs.” So Christian wants them to shut up while he conducts business. He has a question for Punk: What kind of man carries around a title he didn’t win? Fans boo the hypocrisy right before our very eyes.

Punk laughs but Christian says he knows the answer. Just continue doing whatever this is, he and Luchasaurus are gonna go. But a quick reminder that Christian- ER, they are the faces of TNT now and forever! But here comes DARBY ALLIN! He snatches the mic right outta Christian’s hand and continues to the ring! Fans fire up for Darby and he tells Ricky that he doesn’t like the term “Pillar,” either. Four men can’t be the pillars. Anyone who is ride or die with AEW is a pillar! Just like his “good friend,” CM Punk. Darby side hugs Punk and Punk pats him on the back. Darby then asks Christian & Luchasaurus, “Who’s the champion? Is it you? Or is it you?”

But it doesn’t matter to him, because at All Out, he becomes the new Face of TNT! And he’ll put respect back on that title! Cuz when he looks at Luchasaurus, all Darby sees is a guy who took too many drugs and thinks he’s a dinosaur. Christian holds Luchasaurus back, and Darby says he isn’t here to talk. He has an idea: Tag team match! Darby & Punk VS Starks and… Well, Christian doesn’t even wrestle anymore, so make it the TNT Champion, Luchasaurus. Fans fire up for that idea! Christian says he’s the champion? Really? Then get in the tag match tonight. Christian hesitates, fans chant “YES! YES! YES!” but Tony Khan chimes in.

Schiavone says Khan makes it official! Starks & Luchasaurus, or Christian, against Darby and Punk! Fans fire up for that, and Darby says, “See you tonight, Champ.” The Relentless One just shook things up, will he and Punk get to go all out before having it out in September?


AEW shares footage from just before we went on the air.

Andrade El Idolo arrived, security said hello, but told him that after the incident last week, management can’t allow Andrade into the building. What? Sam, c’mon. The House of Black stole his mask! This is why he’s here. But the security insists, he cannot go to the locker room. He has to leave. What? Andrade is frustrated, but has no choice but to leave out the back. Will the House of Black only have to worry about The Acclaimed tonight?


Bullet Club Gold w/ The Gunns VS Action Andretti & Darius Martin!

Jay White & Juice Robinson were so, so close to becoming AEW World Tag Team Championships, but they could not finish off FTR in their Best 2 Out of 3 Falls match. Meanwhile, Action & Darius are rolling after a Zero Hour victory at Death Before Dishonor. Will the Sight to See and the Air Wolf pass the Switchblade & Rock Hard by? Or will the Bang Bang Gang simply reload and try again?

The teams sort out and after a #GunsUp salute, Darius starts against White. The fans chant “ASS~ BOYS!” at Austin & Colten but White and Darius tie up. Darius puts White in a corner but White turns it around. White RAMS into Darius, stomps away, then lets off as the fans count. White CHOPS Darius, the Gunns “WOO~” for him, and White CHOPS again! Darius sputters, White keeps him from Action, and he CHOPS Darius in the corner! Tag to Juice, BCG double whip but Darius KICKS Juice! Darius TOSSES White, ELBOWS Juice, then DROPKICKS Juice down! Hot tag to Action, and Darius RAMS into Juice!

Action ROCKS Juice, Darius HOTSHOTS, and Action goes up to TORNILLO CROSSBODY! Cover, TWO! Austin complains about one in, one out, but Action drags Juice up to wrench. Action CHOPS, knuckle locks, and goes up and up and jumps around to FLYING ARM-DRAG! And DROPKICK! White runs in but Darius intercepts with a DROPKICK! Then they DOUBLE DROPKICK Juice! Fans fire up and Action whips. Juice reverses but Action handsprings, but into a GERMAN SUPLEX! Action lands on his feet! Action ducks ‘n’ dodges, but Juice still LEG LARIATS him down!

Tag to White, and White RAMS into Action again and again! White CHOPS Action down, grabs the legs, and tags Juice. ROPE GUILLOTINE, and then Juice drags Action out, DRAPING NECKBREAKER to the floor! Fans chant “DADDY DOESN’T LOVE~ YOU!” at the Gunns, but they just taunt Action. Darius runs up, but White RAMS him into railing! Darius goes down in a heap, the Gunns join in on a #GunsUp salute, and Juice says you’re looking at the top team in AEW! The ref reprimands everyone as Collision goes picture in picture.

The Gunns taunt the fans, Juice drags Action up and scoops, to SLAM him on the floor! Action writhes, Juice slides in and he tags White. White fetches Action, and whips him hard in to railing! Action writhes but White goes back to drag Darius up, and whips him hard into railing! The ref reprimands, White leaves Darius & Action behind, and he flexes with Juice. White goes back out, fetches Action into the ring, and covers, TWO! White drags Action up, knees him low, and tags in Juice. White hits a BACKBREAKER and Juice hits a SENTON! White then stomps away on Action, then Juice SENTONS again! Cover, TWO!

Action sputters but he’s still in this. Juice grinds his forearm into Action’s face, then smothers him! The ref counts, Juice lets off, and Action sputters again. Juice blows snot at Action, and then another round, really trying to empty that nose. Juice facelocks Action, grinds him down, but Action fights up as Collision returns to single picture. Action wrenches but Juice spins Action back into a suplex! Juice holds Action up, but Action knees things into a cradle! TWO!! Juice anchors Action’s foot but Action fights up!

Tag back to White and the BCG drags Action back up, LEFT HAND O’ GOD, to the SNAP SLEEPER SUPLEX! But that’s not all, the JUICE IS LOOSE!! White says bang, and drags Action up for BLADE RUNNER!! Cover, BCG wins!

Winners: Bullet Club Gold, by pinfall

White & Juice pick up the win, and then the Gunns beat up on Action & Darius for good measure! Fans boo as they then kick Darius & Action out of the ring so they can all celebrate. Will nothing stop them from taking over the AEW Tag Division and beyond?


Miro VS Nick Comoroto!

The Redeemer does not need anyone or anything but himself and victory. Will Miro continue to dominate with his own power? Or will the Wrecking Ball break him down with his own power?

Speaking of, Comoroto attacks Miro from behind during his entrance! Fans boo as Miro tumbles down the ramp! Comoroto storms up and fires off knees! Comoroto CLUBS Miro, Miro hits back, and they brawl at ringside! Comoroto RAMS Miro into steel steps! Miro staggers up, Comoroto puts him in the ring, and now the bell rings. Comoroto scoops Miro to a fireman’s carry, for a WIDOWMAKER! Cover, ONE!! Miro is tougher than that and Comoroto is furious! Comoroto runs in corner to corner to SPLASH! And he RAMS his shoulder in again and again! And then he whips corner to corner, to run and SPLASH!

Comoroto snarls while fans boo. Miro grits his teeth as he drags himself up, but Comoroto whips again. Comoroto runs in, but misses, and Miro GERMAN SUPLEXES! Miro fires up, stomps around, and he hits the BEST KICK! Fans fire up with Miro and he rips his own shirt away! Miro shouts for it, stomps Comoroto, GAME OVER!! Comoroto reaches out, but he cannot reach! Comoroto QUITS, Miro wins!

Winner: Miro, by submission

Comoroto tried to take the fight to Miro, but that only motivated Miro to hurt him worse! Will Miro redeem himself when he takes a title for his own?


AEW World Trios Championships: The House of Black VS The Acclaimed & Billy Gunn!

While Malakai Black has been tormenting Andrade El Idolo, he, Brody King & Buddy Matthews still reign over the AEW Trios Division. Will that not change, no matter what Max Caster, Anthony Bowens & Daddy Ass try? Or will this rematch be redemption for the challengers?

Collision returns as The Acclaimed make their entrance, and Platinum Max has a diss track ready! “The House of Black gettin’ sniped out. Put you on the floor like it’s drugs at the White House! Your reception is lukewarm, y’all’re my favorite category on YouPorn! It’s just a bunch o’ goth chicks. Hey Buddy, you’re lookin’ kinda nauseous! There’s a record of you-” OH NO, Buddy V-TRIGGERS Caster at the ramp!! No more jokes, is the House about to bury The Acclaimed? Brody goes after Billy and Malakai goes after Bowens! Malakai RAMS Bowens into railing! Buddy drags Caster up, Brody CHOPS Billy, Billy hits back but then Brody ROCKS Billy!

Winners: The House of Black, by pinfall (still AEW World Trios Champions)

Billy wanted this so hard, but he could not withstand the onslaught. Malakai whispers something to Billy, was it something of respect? Or something of a warning?

Wait, Billy is untying his boots? Fans chant “NO! NO! NO!” but Billy is taking his boots OFF! Caster & Bowens are also in shock as Billy keeps going. Fans chant “You Still Got It!” but maybe what Malakai said has convinced Billy otherwise? Bowens & Caster are speechless as Billy stands, boots in hand. Billy drops them at the center of the ring, then steps away! Bowens tries to reason with Billy but Billy walks up the ring. Is this the end of the legendary career of Billy Gunn?


Tony Schiavone is back in the ring.

He welcomes out the greatest tag team in the world today, the AEW World Tag Team Champions, FTR! Fans cheer as Cash Wheeler & Dax Harwood make their way out. FTR stands with Schiavone, and he says that with the chant ringing out, one week ago, wow, one of the greatest tag team matches ever. And FTR is still on top. But next week, in Hartford, Connecticut, FTR will defend these titles against the winners of the Blind Eliminator Tag Team Tournament. It will be AEW World Champion, MJF, and Adam Cole VS FTR! Fans cheer that, and Cash asks how Newark’s doing tonight. Fans cheer, they’re good.

Cash checks the list: Aussie Open; The Acclaimed; The Young Bucks. All real tag teams that they have unfinished business with. But first, they have to deal with next week, July 29th, MJF & Adam Cole. Fans again cheer, and Cash says he gets it. The fans like those two, right? Yes! But do you trust MJF? No. Cole, listen: Do you trust Max? Cash doesn’t! That’s from firsthand experience! Anyone remember The Pinnacle? Fans cheer, and Cash saw day in and day out, the kind of person Max really is. And as a wise man once said, the greatest trick the Devil ever pulled is making you believe he doesn’t exist, and he’s doing it again!

So right here, right now, when MJF shows you what he is, and tells you what he is, listen to him. Do NOT trust MJF. Next week, Cole is not beating FTR, baybay. Dax likes where Cash went with that. Dax says that when he was about 14 to 15 years old, his dad had him go out and get a job. Yeah, he booed, too. But every single day after school, these same group of kids would come by, they were privileged with their parents’ money. Those kid would come in, make fun of Dax cuz Dax had to work for money. But Dax promised himself that if he ever saw those kids again, he’d take his right hand, and crack them in the nose. Never got that chance.

But that scenario reminds him of what’s happening right now. Because to Dax, it just feels like MJF & Cole BAYBAY are take the tag titles as a joke. It feels like they take this match as a joke. And for Dax, those skits, those little moments, and yes he knows the fans like the Double Clothesline. But it’s all the laughs and the dance break in the biggest match of their tag career! For ten YEARS, Dax has done everything he could, torn his ACLs, meniscus, labrums, biceps, and then some just to make FTR the greatest team in pro-wrestling! Fans cheer that, and Dax says next week, in Hartford, which fans boo… Dax says there will be NO comedy.

Dax vows to take out on Cole & MJF what he wanted to take out on those spoiled rich kids all those years ago. FTR will give Max & Adam something the real world never gave them: an ass kicking! #TopGuysOut! Will the Blue Collar Brawlers break the boys from Long Island and Panama City?


Taya Valkyrie VS Skye Blue!

Both La Wera Loca and the Chicago Skye have fallen short of titles, but the chase never ends. Who will take a very important step towards another opportunity?

The bell rings and the two circle. Fans rally for Skey but Taya grins. Taya pats Skye on the head, then shoves her down! Fans boo but Skye stands right up to circle with Taya. They tie up, Skye waistlocks, and she holds on as Taya tries to throw her away! Taya swings a full circle and Skye lets go! Taya then KICKS Skye against ropes! Taya bumps Skye off buckles, stomps away, and then CHOPS Skye in the corner! Taya taunts Skye, but Skye dodges the chop to fire off forearms! And a CHOP! And then more forearms! Taya shoves Skye away, Skye ducks ‘n’ dodges and RAMS shoulders! Taya rebounds to run Skye over!

Fans boo but Taya just watches Skye go to ropes. Taya eggs her on, runs in, but Skye dodges to SHINING WIZARD! Skye then runs in, springboards and arm-drags! Fans rally as Skye whips, but Taya blocks! Taya whips Skye, but Skye goes to the apron! Skye ROUNDHOUSES Taya away, Taya runs in to BLAST Skye off the apron! Fans rally as Taya goes out, and she SPEARS Skye down! Fans are torn but Taya drags Skye up and into the ring. Taya CLUBS Skye, whips her to ropes, but Skye holds ropes and ELBOWS back! Skye then dodges the boot to throw Taya down by her hair! Fans fire up and Skye fires off!

Skye runs, Taya reels Skye in to lift and BLUE THUNDER BOMB! Cover, TWO! Skye survives but Taya is having fun now as we go picture in picture.

Taya stalks Skye, kicks her around, and taunts the fans. Skye goes to a corner, Taya drags her up, and bumps her off buckles! Taya stomps Skye, the ref counts, and Taya lets off. Taya swaggers, takes a bow, and then goes corner to corner, to METEORA! Taya drags Skye to a cover, TWO! Skye hangs tough but that annoys Taya. Taya drags Skye around into a seated full nelson. Skye endures, fans rally up, but Taya leans her weight on the hold. Skye fights up, but Taya throws her down by her hair! The ref reprimands, Taya “apologizes,” then goes back for Skye to SLAP her! Taya stomps Skye, swaggers around and mocks the fans.

Skye crawls along ropes, Taya stomps her down! Taya stomps another mudhole in, but lets off as the ref counts. Taya blows a kiss to the fans, then covers Skye, TWO! Taya drags Skye from ropes, stomps the legs, then stomps them some more. Taya has both legs to LEG SPLITTING LEG DROP! Cover, TWO! Skye is still in this but Taya slaps her around. Skye rises but Taya pushes her around. Skye fires a forearm! Taya ROCKS Skye in return! Skye comes back, they go back and forth, and then Skye gets the edge! Collision returns to single picture as Skye ducks a shot, Taya ducks a shot, and then Skye SUPERKICKS! But Taya LARIATS!

Fans fire up while both women are down! A standing count starts, Taya sits up at 2 of 10 but then flops back over. Skye rises at 4, and she throws a forearm! Taya hits back! Skye throws another, so Taya throws it back! Fans rally as the forearms go back and forth! Now it’s a hockey fight! Skye runs to SHOTGUN! Taya staggers up, into the SHINING WIZARD! Skye snapmares, but Taya blocks the superkick! Only for Skye to spin and BASEMENT ENZIGURI! Fans fire up while Taya goes to a corner. Skye runs corner to corner, but Taya puts her on the apron. Skye ROCKS Taya, goes up, and CROSSBODIES! Cover, TWO!

Taya and Skye stand, and Skye hooks an arm. Taya fights the nelson to spin and shove! Skye comes back to wheelbarrow, but Taya puts her in ropes! To ROUNDHOUSE! Taya runs, to SLIDING GERMAN! Skye flounders and fans fire up as Taya blows another kiss. Taya storms in and runs up on Skye, but Skye SUPERKICKS! And SOBATS! Skye roars and runs, but Taya LARIATS her back down! Taya isn’t done there, she traps Skye’s legs and pushes on the deathlock. Then Taya gets the arms, SURFBOARD STOMP!! Cover, Taya wins!

Winner: Taya Valkyrie, by pinfall

Skye put up one hell of a fight, but Taya puts her stamp on this one! Taya then gets the mic to say, “Oh my gosh, New Jersey! You’re worse than I thought!” Fans boo but Taya says she’s just kidding. Though not really. Things haven’t gone her way lately, but… Tonight, against one of the “homegrown sweethearts,” Taya won! And guess who else has had a victory lately? Britt Baker! “I mean, on Dynamite this past Wednesday, she won. But it was against an extra. I mean, someone that’s kind of, not on our level.” Taya says they’ve all done it, it’s not that special. So how about this? Dynamite in Albany, for the first time ever, La Wera Loca VS DMD! “Come play with me, Britt.”

Taya wants to take on another homegrown AEW star, but will she be able to break The Doctor? Or will Britt get herself a win with meaning behind it?


BREAKING NEWS for next week’s Collision!

To settle things between Andrade El Idolo and the House of Black, Buddy Matthews has accepted a match with him! It will be a LADDER MATCH for Andrade’s mask, will Andrade be able to climb up and bring the prize back down? Or will this be the final insult on Andrade’s legacy?

The Second City Saint has a bone to pick with the Absolute King of Harts, and the Relentless Icon is coming for that TNT Championship, so this made for a rather natural move.

Winner: Ricky Starks & Christian Cage, by pinfall

Punk can’t believe it, but Starks snatches another one! Will absolutely nothing stop Starks from taking over AEW?

My Thoughts:

This was a great Collision, lots of great build for things. Great move having Starks go right to the ring from pulling into the parking lot. Great promo segment that transitioned from him and Punk to bringing in Christian and Darby to set up a great tag team main event. They got a full half hour for that main event and they actually made every minute of it matter. In the end, logical move for Starks to cheat another win, he is going further Heel while also further upsetting Punk. This story with Starks and Punk has got to push Punk to put the red gym bag on the line, as it is supposedly where he put his copy of the AEW World Championship.

Great promos from Bullet Club Gold and the team of Action & Darius to also lead into their match. Action & Darius are strong in ROH but not so much in AEW, so BCG winning makes sense. Kinda thought a team would confront them over beating down Action & Darius after but no, that wasn’t needed because it would bring up another feud when BCG’s story is waiting on the tag titles. Great promo from FTR, though Dax could’ve been more concise about his point. MJF definitely fits the privileged kid profile but I’m not sure about Cole. And I do get Dax’s perspective of not wanting “sports entertainment” in the build. Though he kinda breaks kayfabe by calling those “skits.” That aside, FTR VS Better Than You BAYBAY will be awesome stuff next week.

Really good match from Taya and Skye, and of course Taya wins. Taya calls out Britt, that will be a really good match, and it almost feels like maybe Taya is going to become an Outcast? Sure, she just had a match with Toni Storm, and was the Face by default, but Taya could still join up because she and Toni started seeing eye to eye after their match. And Miro VS Comoroto was great stuff, because one, Comoroto attacking Miro was a great move as no one’s really tried that. But of course Miro wins out, but he’s still biding his time while all singles titles are spoken for. I can only hope Miro goes after whoever is AEW World Champion after All Out to move things into Autumn.

And really good stuff with Andrade, House of Black and The Acclaimed. Andrade being banned from the building so that The House of Black didn’t have to worry about him was a nice detail. Caster starting to tease Buddy about the Rhea-Dom stuff was where I figured he’d go, and the match itself was great stuff. I figured the House of Black would win, but what a surprise for Billy to signal retirement. This is surely for story, but there was some great showing of emotion from The Acclaimed, and of course the fans don’t want Daddy Ass to leave just yet. There could be one last match where it’s titles VS Billy’s career, but I guess we’ll wait and see.

My Score: 8.9/10

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.

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?

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?

Penta hauls Cage up, reels him in, “CERO! MIEDO!” But Cage wrenches out to JUMP KNEE! Penta falls into the tag with Komander, and Komander springboards, but Cage SWATS him! Cage whips Komander to the corner, tags Henry, and Cage runs up to MONKEY FLIP Komander into JD’s POWERBOMB!! Then JD CATAPULTS Kmoander into Henry’s SUPERKICK! Henry goes up, DIVING DOUBLE STOMP BACKBREAKER of their own! Cover, Vikingo breaks it!!

JD TOSSES Vikingo, Penta SUPERKICKS JD! Cage fireman’s carries Penta for F10! Vikingo returns with a springboard, FLYING TORNADO DDT!! Henry is back, he steps over and reels Vikingo in, PILEDRIVER!

Winners: Penta El Zero Miedo, Komander & El Hijo Del Vikingo, by pinfall

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

AEW shares footage from after Saturday Night Collision.

Eddie Kingston asks them what they want him to say. He knew this was gonna be tough. Tony Khan didn’t put any scrubs in this tournament. Eddie just maybe got too cocky, thinking that since he put two belts in the pot, he was a given winner. No one deserves to win, everything is earned. Eddie has Bryan next but he’s behind the 8 ball. Eddie says he will not do this. He will not go backwards. Humble in victory and humble in defeat. Eddie has to go heal up, Epsom salt bath, all that good stuff. The Mad King vows he will be ready for the American Dragon.

Bryan Danielson responds.

Bryan says he was actually impressed by the confidence Eddie had to put up both his titles for the tournament. But now, one loss and Eddie feels he’s behind the 8 ball? Against Bryan? Bryan fractured his orbital bone, needed surgery in two places, and yet he is coming into this tournament on fire! He is NOT behind the 8 ball, he is NOT going to be humble, he is here to win this and be the first AEW Triple Crown! Will Bryan’s Blue League start be Eddie’s Blue League end?


Tony Schiavone is backstage.

He brings up that Sting’s final match is coming. AEW Revolution, Sunday, March 3rd, 2024. And when it comes to where they’ll have Sting’s final match, they thought of the many great venues across the world, but what better place for Sting’s final match than Greensboro, North Carolina and the Greensboro Coliseum? So many great Sting matches were held there, but one in particular that comes to mind is 1988, Sting VS Ric Flair for the World Heavyweight Championship. So Greensboro Coliseum in North Carolina, get ready! Joining Schiavone now are those very legends, Sting and Ric Flair!

First off, 24-0, the longest win streak in AEW right now, what a fitting place for Sting to have his final match and maybe end on 25 than in Greensboro. Sting says yeah, wow, all those years ago, it was March 8th, 1988, his very first world title match against perhaps the greatest world champion of all time in The Nature Boy. Sting would’ve never guessed that night, 35 years later, we’d be here now. The memories, 45 minutes but a draw, commercial free, the first time in TV history that any sporting event even did that. But that’s not the real point of it. The big deal was being in there with Ric Flair. That was a make or break night, and so thank you, Ric, for putting Sting on the map.

Sting says yeah, that is a fitting place to end his career all these years later, Greensboro. Schiavone says so many great memories, and for him and Flair, forty years ago, does he remember? Oh, Flair knows. The words cannot be spoken to emphasize what is about to happen! Greensboro, where Sting, make no mistake, Ric didn’t make Sting a thing, Sting made himself! 45 MINUTES! Commercial free! With Flair! Unthinkable! Sting walked back there to 25 wrestlers going, “Jesus! You’re the man! You did it, Stinger!” He went out there and did it like a man! That’s what this business is all about.

Flair is 74 years old, standing next to the Icon, with his friend, Schiavone, and going back to Greensboro for what will be the greatest moment of his life, and God knows Flair’s had some good ones. He is honored to be there at Sting’s side! They shake hands, and Flair says the ACC Tournament and all that, nah, this is one for the ages! Highway 85 will be lined up from Richmond, all the way to Charlotte, like it always was! Sting, The Nature Boy, and AEW are coming to Greensboro! Let’s give it to ’em! “WOO~!” It’s the 80s all over again! Tickets on sale December 15th! IT’S SHOWTIME!

RJ City interviews “Timeless” Toni Storm.

Madame Storm seems rather bothered by something. RJ gets her attention but she tells him to sit. And don’t be so loud. RJ does sit, and Mariah May takes the title for Storm. RJ wants to bring up the championship acceptance speech last week. Yes, and she was rudely interrupted! Yeah, that’s true. How is she feeling? Storm says they partied well into the night, spent some time at the compound, JFK or one of the Kennedys was there. But now she is very fatigued, dehydrated, and has a touch of the gout. Oh, wow. Well, he wants to inform her that she is scheduled to defend the AEW Women’s World Championship. But given her state, is she worried at all?

Worried? Was Fatty Arbuckle worried? Was Jean Harlow worried? Was Frances bloody Farmer worried? No, they all turned out fine, and so will she. Before she goes, take off her shoe, she’s feeling swollen. RJ does take off her shoes for her, but will Storm have to focus before someone takes the title off her?


MJF is here!

Fans cheer as the AEW World Champion walks out here with the help of his cane, mic in the other hand. He has them cut his music, he gets into the ring, and the fans cheer him on. MJF gets right to it as he says “December 30th, Nassau Coliseum, Worlds End, it will be Samoa Joe VS yours truly for the grandest prize of ’em all, The Triple B, the AEW World Championship.” Fans cheer that, and MJF wants to be honest, though. When it comes to Joe as a person, eeeeeeh MJF doesn’t like him. But when it comes to Joe professional, MJF respects him.

MJF respects what Joe has done for the industry, and most importantly, when Joe came into AEW, he didn’t come here to line his pockets, he came here because he believes in those three letters. Fans cheer for “A E DUB! A E DUB!” and MJF says back in the early 2000s, MJF remembers getting a poster in his mailbox and it was for TNA Wrestling. And he remembers thinking, what even is this all about? He tuned in and couldn’t have been happier. He saw insane feats of athleticism, he saw a new cast of pro-wrestlers he’d never heard of before, but most of all, he saw one man among the rest, and that was the Samoan Submission Machine.

While Samoa Joe may’ve looked unconventional, he didn’t seem to care, and neither did any of the fans. Because every time Joe walked through the curtain, we knew he was the baddest man walking on God’s Green Earth. Now unfortunately, later on in his career, Joe’s talents were not recognized and he was not afforded the opportunity to be a world champion in the WWE. Fans boo, but MJF says what Joe did for this sport was bigger than that. “Joe proved you don’t have to be a massive male model bodybuilder to be a top guy in this sport. Samoa Joe broke the mold. Samoa Joe proved alternatives matter.

“And because of the road that Joe paved, it has allowed for a man like me to stand before you today. Without a guy like Joe, there may be no AEW. So Joe, very quickly, what I’d like to say, as much as this all pains me to admit, thank you.” Fans cheer that and join in, “Thank You, Joe! Thank You, Joe!” Yes, thank you, Joe! However… MJF has actually, though grateful to have gone down the road Joe paved, MJF isn’t too shabby himself, now is he? Fans cheer that. MJF managed to pave his own road, and built on a new alternative. He is AEW day one, and he has helped build this place brick by brick! Fans cheer “M J F! M J F!”

MJF says he did that by defeating some of the biggest names in this industry! Names like Cody Rhodes, CM Punk, Bryan Danielson, Chris Jericho, Jon Moxley, Kenny Omega. But of all the names MJF has had to face in this ring, the one name he looks back on, and not only was he lucky to win, he was lucky to survive, that is Joe. Samoa Joe is a wrestling legend. But December 30th is not about Joe’s legacy. It’s about MJF’s! December 30th is about answering the question, “Can Max Friedman outlast the Final Boss of this sport one more time?” So now, MJF is gonna make a promise. He promises to everyone watching at home and everyone here in this arena.

MJF promises that on December 30th, it doesn’t matter if his left knee keeps sliding in and out, if his right hip keeps popping in and out of socket, if his right shoulder is hanging on by a threat, or if Joe beats him within an inch of his life. Joe could be King Kong and Godzilla incarnate. Because MJF promises that on December 30th, he shows the world that it is not about the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog! And if you want to take what’s his… at Worlds End, you’ll have to put MJF down! MJF even breaks his cane!! Fans fire up with MJF, but then the lights go down.

Now there are lights blinking all over the place. MJF looks around, but THE DEVIL’S MINIONS ATTACK! Fans boo as one of them has a baseball bat!! But here comes Joe!! Joe said he’d have MJF’s back so here he is! He YANKS the big guy out, gets that bat, and he runs the rest off! Cameras have trouble here, but when things come back, a message types out on screen. “In the shadows, our game begins. Next week, MJF & Samoa Joe… will you face the unknown in a tag match? Are you a hero, Max?” The Devil has made his challenge to the champ! The fans chant “DO IT! DO IT!” and “He’s Our Scumbag!” Joe tries to get MJF to ignore all this, it’s what this Devil wants!

But MJF says “I’m so sick of your Scooby-Doo BS! LEMME EXPLAIN SOMETHING TO YOU! I am not dealing with your crap when I got that guy breathing down my neck at Worlds End. No no. I am going to take out all of your men, one by one. I am going to unmask you, you coward! And next week, you wanna tag match?! YOU’RE ON!!” Joe isn’t for it, but the challenge has been accepted. Will Joe just have to save MJF from himself?


Wardlow VS AR Fox!

Speaking of someone who wants to take everything away from MJF, the War Dog is on the warpath, just waiting for the right moment. After what we just saw, is MJF going to be served up on a silver platter?

But wait! Fox BOOTS Wardlow down off the apron! And then FLIES out! But Wardlow stays up! So Fox FLIES again! Direct hit but Wardlow is still up! Wardlow HEADBUTTS Fox, then whips him at the apron. Fox 619s on the apron to hit back! And then he goes up the corner to MOONSAULT, but Wardlow catches him! SLAM on the apron, and then Wardlow box jumps up to the apron. Wardlow storms in, fans rally up, and Wardlow drags Fox up for an OVERHEAD BELLY2BELLY! Now with both men in the ring, the bell finally sounds and this is actually a match. Wardlow storms up on Fox in the corner, to then TOSS him across the way!

Fox flounders out of the ring and Wardlow is having fun now. Wardlow goes out to stalk Fox, CLUB him on the back, and the ring count climbs. Wardlow hauls Fox up to TOSS him back in! Fans rally, Wardlow storms back in, and Wardlow drags Fox up. Fox shoves Wardlow but Wardlow CLUBS him! Wardlow trophy lifts, but Fox slips free! Wardlow runs in, but only gets buckles as Fox slips out to the apron! Fox swings to dropkick, then he goes up to 450 SPLASH! Cover, ONE!! Wardlow snarls and Fox is stunned! Fox runs in to BOOT! Wardlow doesn’t budge so Fox BOOTS him again! And again! Fox runs, but Wardlow pops him up for a SPINEBUSTER!

Wardlow winds up, to LARIAT Fox down! Wardlow then hauls Fox up, POWERBOMB! The symphony begins as fans want more! Wardlow drags Fox up, reels him back in, another POWERBOMB! And then Wardlow goes up the corner, to SWANTON BOMB!! Fans fire up and Wardlow still isn’t done! He reels Fox back in, to LAST RIDE POWERBOMB!!! The ref checks, Fox is OUT! Wardlow wins!

Winner: Wardlow, by pinfall

The remixed Powerbomb Symphony was too much for Fox, and Wardlow storms off. When and where will Wardlow sink his teeth into MJF?


Six Man Tag: Action Andretti & Top Flight VS The Hardy Party!

The Sight to See and the reunited Martin brothers are ready to be the Coldest Trio in the Game, but they’re taking on Isiah Kassidy and the legendary Hardy brothers! Will Action, Darius & Dante add themselves to the top of the trios rankings? Or will Matt, Jeff & Brother Zay take them to the extreme?

The trios sort out and Minneapolis is happy to have Dante back. Action and Matt start, they tie up and Matt headlocks. Action powers out then DROPKICKS Matt down! Matt goes to ropes, Action runs in but is put on the apron. Action RAMS into Matt, slingshots up and over to sunset flip, TWO! Matt is up, Action kicks but Matt blocks! Matt flips Action, Action lands on his feet but Matt hip tosses! Tag to Jeff and the Hardys get Action up, atomic drop and the takedown, DOUBLE LEG DROP! Jeff covers, TWO! Jeff drags Action up, CLUBS him, and wrenches an arm. Jeff hammerlocks but Action switches it onto Jeff.

Fans rally up for Dante, Jeff elbows Action and runs, but Action trips Jeff! STANDING MOONSAULT, but Jeff moves! Action hits the superhero landing and stares the Charismatic Enigma down! Fans fire up, and they both back away, tag to Darius and Isiah. Fans rally up as Zay and Air Wolf tie up. Zay headlocks, Darius powers out but Zay runs him over! Zay pumps and bumps, things speed up, and Darius hurdles. Zay backflips over, but Darius arm-drags! Darius then sidesteps but Zay arm-drags! Darius trips Zay to cover, ONE! Zay trips Darius but Darius throws him away to then DROPKICK!

Fans fire up as Darius mocks the Jeff Hardy dance. Zay is in the corner, Darius runs in to SPLASH and tag Dante! Fans fire up as Dante jumps, runs, and A-LIST LARIATS! Tag back to Darius, snap suplex and a slingshot senton! Fans fire up and Action tags in. Darius gets Zay up, wrenches an arm, and Action DOUBLE STOMPS the arm. Zay losses his durag and Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Action whips Zay, Zay reverses but Action avoids the dropkick. Matt CLOBBERS Action while the ref is checking Zay! Zay gets Action up, RAMS him to the corner, and Zay fires off hands. Tag to Jeff, and they mug Action with some stomps. The ref counts, Jeff lets off at 4, and he brings Action up to snapmare. Jeff runs to NECK SNAP, then NECK SNAP the other way! And then another one! Action staggers up, Jeff kicks low and suplexes for a GOURD BUSTER! Cover, TWO! Jeff stays between Action and the Martins to show them how to do his dance. Jeff then CLUBS Action, tags in Zay, and Zay CLUBS Action’s arm.

Zay throws Action out, goes out and throws him into railing! Zay talks some smack, then he stomps away on Action! High five with the fans, then more stomps! Selfie! Zay then puts Action in the ring, CLUBS him down, then drags him back to the corner. Tag to Matt and he RAMS into Action. Matt ROCKS Action with a right, then bumps him off buckles.

Both men are down and the fans fire back up! Action and Matt crawl, hot tags to Dante and Zay! Dante goes up and over Zay, CLOBBERS him, CLOBBERS him again, then whips. Zay reverses, Dante goes out and Zay hits buckles! Dante then goes right over the corner, GAMANGIRIS Zay away then jumps to avoid Jeff’s sweep! SPRINGBOARD CROSSBODY! Cover, Matt breaks it! Fans boo but Matt TWIST- NO, Dante powers out and Darius GAMANGIRIS! Dante ROUNDHOUSES, Darius steps in to COMPLETE SHOT! Zay is up and he shoves Dante into Darius! Roll up, TWO!!

Winners: Action Andretti & Top Flight, by pinfall

A powerful homecoming for Dante Martin, he and his team have a massive win! Will they soon fly high and go after the AEW World Trios Championships?


Backstage interview with Action & Top Flight.

Renee is with them and congratulates them on the big win. So good to see Dante back, how is that leg? But then Penta El Zero Miedo and Alex Abrahantes step in. Penta offers a fist bump, and Dante accepts. They’re all good given Penta was responsible for the broken leg in that Reach for the Sky Ladder match. But then Penta counts, one, two, three. Bring ’em in. Komander and El Hijo Del Vikingo join Penta, that makes one, two, three. And Cero Miedo! Dante nods, when and where will we see this top tier trios match go down?


AEW TBS Championship House Rules Match: Julia Hart VS Emi Sakura!

The Princess of the Black Throne successfully defended her gold on Collision against Lady Frost, but now she takes on the Queen of Joshi! And for this match, Dealer’s Choice says submissions can NOT win the match! Then if Julia can’t be Hartless, will she just have to be ruthless?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see if the House Always Wins!

The bell rings and fans rally up behind Julia. Julia soaks it up, but Emi laughs at it. Emi and Julia smirk as they stare down, then they approach. Emi dodges Julia and laughs some more, but then Julia grabs her by the face! Julia bumps Emi off buckles, fires off forearms and stomps, then whips corner to corner. Julia runs in, handsprings and clotheslines! Julia keeps moving, back body block! Julia snapmares Emi, KICKS her, but Emi just frowns. Fans fire up, and Emi stands up. Julia CHOPS but Emi CHOPS! And CHOPS! And CHOPS! Julia shrieks, but Emi pushes her around. Emi aims but Julia blocks the chop to WRING the arm!

Emi goes to ropes, the fans fire up as Julia CLUBS, HOOK KICKS then KICKS Emi down! Julia pushes Emi out of the ring, goes out after her, but Emi throws body shots. Julia whips, Emi reverses, and Julia hits steel steps! Per the House Rules, there’s a 20 count, not a 10, so Emi has more time to use. Emi runs in to SPLASH Julia against the steps! Fans fire up and the ref checks Julia as Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Emi stands on Julia’s face, the ref reprimands, but Emi steps away. She has to be careful, part of House Rules is that disqualifications are strongly enforced. Emi then takes a seat on security’s lap before she storms up on Julia. Emi brings Julia around to CHOP against railing! Then Emi brings Julia over to send into more railing, and CHOP again! Emi puts Julia in the ring, drags her around and dragon sleepers! TWISTING DDT! Cover, TWO! Julia is still in this but Emi pushes her to a corner. Emi CHOPS, and Julia staggers away to another corner. Emi CHOPS her again! And again! And MACHINE GUN CHOPS!

Julia sits down, Emi digs her boots in, but the ref counts. Emi lets off, soaks up the heat, and then brings Julia up to whip corner to corner. Julia stops herself to ELBOW back! Julia storms up on Emi to throw hands, but Emi SLAPS Julia down! Julia checks her jaw, but Emi digs her knees into Julia’s neck! The ref counts, Dynamite returns to single picture, and Emi lets off. Emi watches Julia flounder around, and Julia sits up to throw body shots. Emi just laughs and brings Julia around to underhook. Stalling BUTTERFLY BACKBREAKER! Emi waits on Julia to sit up, says she’ll be the champion, and then underhooks again!

Julia fights up and round, SLEEPER! Submissions won’t win but she just wants to make Emi suffer! Emi falls, flails, Julia has a headscissor squeeze! Emi rolls, pops out the back, and she hooks Julia’s legs up! ROMERO SPECIAL! Julia endures, then Emi THROWS her down! Emi drags Julia around, puts her in a drop zone, but fans still rally for Julia. Emi climbs, MOONSAULT FLOPS as Julia moves! Julia wraps on the HARTLESS LOCK!! But it won’t win! Emi flails, taps, but it doesn’t save Emi, either! Julia thrashes Emi, lets her go, and the ref has to remind Julia it’s her own rules. So Julia BLINDSIDE LARIATS!

Julia stomps Emi into the drop zone, then goes up the corner. MOONSAULT!! Cover, Julia wins!

Winner: Julia Hart, by pinfall (still AEW TBS Champion)

Another defense in the books, Julia is still golden! Will she keep on winning with such unpredictable rules?


Backstage interview with Mariah May.

RJ City is with Miss May and says we saw her at Full Gear and last week, but we also know she’s here, hungry for more. Mariah says yes she is. She knows she’s the new girl and all, but she did just come from Stardom, and she had quite the run. She is dying to show us what she can do. So thanks for connecting her with Toni Storm. RJ says it’s nothing, he and Toni go way back, used to play squash together. No, really, RJ is quite the curator. And Mariah knows Toni likes him, so this means the world to her. No, no, Toni makes things happen. He’s just happy to help. Mariah seems a bit disappointed, but RJ says without further ado, go get ’em!

Mariah knocks on Tony Khan’s door, steps inside, and talks with the boss. Will this Tony be just as accommodating as Toni Storm?


Christian Cage is here!

The TNT Champion, the Patriarch, makes his way to the ring, security right behind him. Captain Charisma then gets a mic while the fans boo, and he says what he’d like to do right now is go ahead and invite the Rated R Superstar to this ring right now. Fans fire up for that, and Christian says he knows Edge is back there. Fans shout “ADAAAAM~!” and Christian says he just wants to talk about what Edge said on Collision. So if Edge doesn’t mind making his presence felt, Christian would appreciate it. But still no response? Did Christian make sure to do this when Edge isn’t here?

Christian waits, gets upset, and asks Adam “ADAAAM~!” that he’d like to speak with him in this ring. Please, someone, hit the mic, get Adam’s attention, something. Or should Christian go back there to speak with him? “You think you know him.” And here comes Edge!! Fans fire up as Edge storms into the ring, and of course the security becomes a wall in front of Christian. Edge paces and Christian says listen, management wanted this, not him. Fans boo that garbage, but Christian says they don’t need security. He asks these men to vacate the ring. They shrug and bail out, even though Edge looks ready to pounce.

Christian brings up that last week, Edge challenged him to a match for the TNT Championship on December 6th, Dynamite in Montreal. Christian is here to tell Edge that they won’t make it to Montreal. They get face to face and fans fire up. Christian says they won’t make it to Montreal because “I’m sorry.” What? Edge is also confused, and Christian says he knows what we’re all thinking. Christian is only sorry because he’s all alone, right? Fans confirm and they chant “BULL~ SHID!” at him! Christian asks them to understand. Edge took out “The Prodigy” Nick Wayne, he took out Killswitch/Luchasaurus, but that’s not why Christian’s sorry.

He won’t lie, he was pissed about what Edge did to Lucha- er, Killswitch, with not one but two Con-Chair-Tos. Christian was so mad, he jumped out of his house, got in his car and just drove around. He needed to think, needed fresh air. And somewhere during that trip, it turned into one of reflection. It turned into a roadtrip of soul searching, digging down deep, trying to understand why he became the person that he is, this guy who says and does such unsavory things. And then he remembered those times he and Edge would borrow Christian’s mom’s Ford Taurus. They nicknamed it “Toby the Taurus” because they took it everywhere when they were trying to make it.

They didn’t care where they went, they were broke, not a dime to their names, but they didn’t care. They were having the time of their lives! They knew they were gonna make it. They didn’t know how, but they knew they would. And dammit, did they ever make it, huh? They went on to become multiple-time tag team champions, and Christian will say it, the greatest tag team that ever lived! Fans do cheer that. Christian and Edge then became multiple time world champions, two of the greatest careers in this sport. But take the wrestling away, and it runs even deeper. Everyone knows Edge grew up with a single mom. Everyone knows that Edge didn’t have a father figure.

Fans boo, already sensing where this is going! Christian wants Edge to listen! Yes, he is the Patriarch of AEW, but in no way is he suggesting he’s Edge’s father. Christian is Edge’s brother. And in turn, Christian’s father became like Edge’s father. Edge went on family trips, sat at the dinner table, slept over! When Edge needed discipline, Christian’s dad treated him the same as his own kids. He picked Edge up, brushed him off, hugged him and cheered him on. To this very day, he is still Edge’s biggest fan. So listen, Christian will just say it. They weren’t just random guys thrown together. “I love you, man.” Fans boo that one!

Christian says they’re family. And listen, when Edge’s mom passed a few years ago, that was the hardest time of Edge’s life. Christian knows that. But some time before, she said, “What I wouldn’t give to see you guys in that ring, teaming one last time.” Christian started thinking, that they should do this for her! Let’s go on the journey together again, like Edge wanted! Edge & Christian, for Judy “Judemeister” Copeland! Let’s do it for her! Fans cheer for Judy, but Edge is conflicted. Christian drops the mic, holds the belt, and then rushes Edge! Edge LOW BLOWS Christian first!! Fans cheer as Christian leans on Edge in pain.

Christian slumps down and Edge lets him fall. Fans want that one more time, but Edge gets the mic. “Nice try, dumbass.” Edge tells him to sit up when he’s talking. Edge grabs the belt, tells Christian to shine it up real nice. Hell, sleep with it if he wants. Because next week, the title’s coming home with Edge! Oh, and one more thing, Edge almost forgot. G F Y!! Fans are thunderous as Edge takes his leave. Will Edge crush Christian’s spirit as payback for everything he’s said and done?


AEW Continental Classic, Gold League: Jay White VS Swerve Strickland!

The Switchblade and the Realest are both 1-0 with three points, and now they are going to battle in what could be the decisive battle in this block! With no Juice Robinson, no Ass Boys, no Prince Nana or Brian Cage, who will prove to be the slipperiest snake in all of AEW?

The bell rings and fans fire up for “Whose House?” “SWERVE’S HOUSE!” White still throws guns up, but he and Swerve then tie up. They go around, Swerve puts White in a corner, but White turns it around. Swerve turns it back around, White pulls hair to turn it around again, then he RAMS into Swerve! And again! And again! White tosses Swerve out, then goes out to CHOP! White then RAMS Swerve into railing, mocks Nana’s dance, but Swerve throws hands! Swerve runs and RAMS White into railing! Fans fire up with Swerve and he stomps White down. Swerve then whips, but White reverses and Swerve hits railing so hard, he goes over into the front row!

Fans fire up and security helps Swerve, but then White drags him back in. White puts Swerve in the ring, mockingly asks, “Whose House?” and he stomps Swerve. White wrenches the arm, CLUBS it, and then CHOPS! White again mockingly asks, “Whose House?” “SWERVE’S HOUSE!” White CHOPS Swerve, but Swerve BOOTS back! And CHOPS! And CHOPS! And CHOPS! Swerve whips, White holds ropes, then he dumps Swerve out. But Swerve pulls hair! White HOTSHOTS Swerve, builds speed and slides, but Swerve catches him to BACK SUPLEX White into the front row! Fans are getting a much more interactive experience than expected!

Swerve drags White back up, White grabs at fans desperately, but the fans can’t do anything for him as Swerve dumps White back over. Swerve pushes White around, goes up the apron, and then he FLYING STOMPS White down! Fans fire up, Swerve puts White in, and then aims from the apron. But White gets a leg in the ropes! Swerve claws at White, pushes him away, but White BOOTS Swerve, then DRAPING DDTS! Fans rally for Swerve but White drags Swerve up to CHOP! Fans “WOO~!” and Dynamite goes picture in picture.

White sits Swerve up again, to CHOP him back down! White drags Swerve up again, goes up a corner, and mocks Swerve, to then hop back down and CHOP again! Swerve writhes, White drags him up, and White TOSSES Swerve out of the ring. White goes out after Swerve, but he CHOPS back! Swerve then clinches to hit a BACKBREAKER! White writhes, Swerve goes up to the apron again, and he BOOTS White back down! Fans rally up, Swerve drags White into the ring, and then clamps on a cording hold. White grabs ropes, the ref counts, Swerve takes a swing, but White EXPLODERS Swerve up and out!

White goes out after Swerve, hauls him up, and APRON GOURD BUSTERS! Swerve writhes and flounders but White refreshes the ring count. White then RAMS Swerve into steel steps! Swerve gets in the ring, White pursues and covers, TWO! White clamps onto Swerve’s bad arm, then traps the other, and he stretches Swerve out as Dynamite returns to single picture. Swerve fights up, but White throws him down by hair! White again mocks the chant, “Whose House?” Bryan commends Swerve on toughness. He had a brutal Texas Deathmatch with Hangman Page, and the only thing taped up is that arm.

Speaking of, White clamps onto the arms again, but Swerve endures. Swerve fights up, throws body shots, but White throws him down by his hair! Fans boo, Swerve gets up to SLAP White! Swerve CHOPS, White waistlocks, but Swerve swings elbows. White gets under to SAIDO! White then storms up to drag Swerve up, CORNER HALF HATCH! Cover, TWO! Swerve is still in this but White scuffs him. White mockingly says he needs his points. White knees Swerve low, and again, but Swerve blocks the chop! Swerve wrenches, gets around, HAMMERLOCK BACK SUPLEX! White writhes and fans fire up!

Swerve snarls, storms up on White, and he ROCKS him! Body shot! Forearm! Body shot! Repeat! Swerve snapmares, rolls, but White catches the Complete Shot, but then Swerve slips out of the Urenage! Swerve goes to a corner, White runs in but Swerve goes up and over to O’Conner and Eddy Gordo RANA! White tumbles, staggers, into the SOMERSAULT COMPLETE SHOT! And then a gator roll into a deadlift suplex! Fans fire up as Swerve covers, TWO!! White survives and Swerve grows frustrated. Fans still rally up behind Swerve, and he grabs White’s wrist. White resists but Swerve still drags him up.

White reaches out, kicks Swerve’s legs, then gets free. White swings, Swerve dodges and comes back, COMPLETE SHOT from White! White then waistlocks to deadlift GERMAN SUPLEX! White runs up, but Swerve DISCUS LARIATS! Fans are thunderous while both men are down and Bryan says, “How incredible are these two men?!” A standing count starts, both men stir, and White flounders to ropes. “This is Awesome!” as White comes back, he and Swerve go forehead to forehead, and they trade junkyard dog headbutts. Swerve laughs, White throws hands! Swerve throws them back! They go back and forth, faster and faster!

Fans rally up as the shots keep flying, and Swerve DECKS White! Fans fire up, Swerve smiles, but White grabs at Swerve’s legs. Swerve grabs at White, White CHOP BLOCKS! White then gets the bad arm, clinches, and URENAGES! Cover, TWO!! Swerve is still in this, this isn’t anything compared to Texas Death! White clamps on with the sleeper, though, and he hauls Swerve up. Swerve throws elbows, but White wrangles him for a FUJIWARA ARMBAR! Fans fire up, Swerve endures, White CLUBS away on the bad arm and pulls! Swerve reaches out, fights around, but White keeps him from ropes by pulling hair!

Swerve and White roll together, but Swerve slips around to get White’s arms trapped! Swerve stands on that arm! Finger gun and BANG!! The arm goes back and the fans tell Swerve he’s sick! Swerve grins, storms up on White and drags him up again. But White fights the half nelson and puts Swerve in a corner. The ref counts, White arm-drags free, but then Swerve sends him at the ref! White stops himself, LOW- NO! Swerve blocks the kick, he was paying attention to last week! Swerve slips around and hits a BACKBREAKER! Fans fire up, Swerve runs to HOUSE CALL!! Then Swerve goes up and he takes aim!

White sits up, into the KILL STOMPS!! Cover, TWO?!?! No one can believe it, least of all Swerve!! White survives Swerve’s best shots, but Swerve drags him up! Swerve’s bad arm holds him back, but then White clinches! BLADERUNNER!! But Swerve flops out of the ring!! White hurries out after Swerve, pushes him in, and hurries to clinch. Swerve fights up, fights the sleeper, and hits an ELBOW BREAKER! But White still rolls Swerve up with his other arm! TWO! White storms up, Swerve trips and jackknife bridges, TWO!! BLADE- NO, Swerve slips free, but White fights the half nelson! And CHOPS!

Swerve CHOPS back! White CHOPS! We get the 15 minute mark, so time’s ticking away! Swerve CHOPS, White CHOPS, repeat! White kicks and CHOPS, then reels Swerve in. Swerve uses a leg to get free but White has him again, SNAP SLEEPER SUPLEX!! Then the clinch, BLADE- ARM-DRAG!! Cradle cover, SWERVE WINS!!!

Winner: Swerve Strickland, by pinfall (gains 3 points; White earns 0)

White is shocked that he got beat! The #Jay1 aside, these points go to The Realest! Will the Gold League soon be whose house?

My Thoughts:

A great Dynamite, with awesome Continental Classic matches. But also really good non-tournament matches, such as that Trios Match. Great return to action for Dante Martin, great win for him and his trio, and those three could really build themselves up into trios title contenders with matches like this. And really good TBS Championship match Julia and Emi, though they need to get better at bringing up how House Rules work. No Ropebreaks, the ring count is to 20, and there’s Dealer’s Choice. They just kinda threw out there that this was gonna be a No Submission Falls, which was honestly a brilliant move by Emi. But in the end, of course Julia wins, it’s still too early for her to lose this belt.

Wardlow squashing- heck, he demolished AR Fox, is fine for Wardlow but a shame for Fox. Wardlow is still staying strong as he waits for the right moment to go after MJF again, but maybe, just maybe, he’s been going after MJF all along as that big guy among the “gimp squad” that tried to get MJF tonight. Great promo from MJF to not just praise Joe but also bury Punk without having to actually reference Punk going back to WWE. Joe made the save as expected, and now they’re getting dragged into a tag match against any two of those goons, and who knows who they are really, but can’t wait to see how this all goes.

Awesome stuff from Christian and Edge tonight, a brilliant move for Christian to so blatantly play to Edge’s emotions just to save his own ass. But of course it was also brilliant for Edge to not fall for it at all and get the better of Christian. But uh, AEW needs to be better at live censoring their shows, that GFY got right past them. That aside, that TNT Championship match is going to be awesome stuff, could go either way, but I still want to see Luchasaurus betray Christian and finally become his own man-dinosaur. Not Jack Perry’s tag partner, not Christian’s henchman, but his own man doing his own stuff.

And as I said at the start, awesome Continental Classic matches. Bryan Danielson also being on commentary for these was a good move, that could easily be a thing he does after he retires, except I think part of retiring is staying home with the family. Anyway, Moxley VS Lethal was a great opening match, and I figured Moxley would win that. Maybe Lethal realizes he really has let Team Triple J weaken him with all their antics. Rush VS Briscoe then raised the bar, though with a somewhat scary moment where I thought Rush took a shot to the head but it was really a concern for his leg. Rush winning was a fair choice, and that puts pressure on a possible 0-2 VS 0-2, Lethal VS Briscoe in the next round. I say “possible” because Tony Khan doesn’t reveal the entire schedule at once.

And then just an awesome, borderline PPV level match of Swerve VS White. The fans were strongly behind Swerve, I was behind Swerve, so it’s great to see Swerve get to 2-0. Swerve’s becoming my top choice for Gold League and maybe even the entire thing. Swerve having the ROH World, NJPW Strong Openweight and the AEW Continental Championships, he could really do a lot with traveling between the three brands. Mogul Embassy is already in ROH given they’re ROH World Six Man Champions, and the Gates are in NJPW right now for World Tag League, so Swerve joining them pretty much everywhere, all four of them having belts, that’s great stuff to me.

My Score: 9/10
