FTW Championship: Hook VS Jack Perry!

There was such promise in the duo of #JungleHook, but now there is only bad blood! The Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil doesn’t want to play the cat ‘n’ mouse game anymore, he just wants to fight! Will he get that fight here in Boston? Or will this match truly mark a new chapter for the man once known as Jungle Boy?

Speaking of, Jack drags “Jungle Boy” into the desert and buries him in a shallow grave! Jack then gets a limousine ride into town, embracing “Hollywood” Jack Perry. And now instead of Tarzan Boy, he makes his entrance to Beethoven’s Symphony Number 5! A bit dramatic, don’t you think? The introductions are made, the “outlaw championship” is raised, and we see if Jack comes to regret what he did!

The bell rings as fans chant ‘WHOOP HIS ASS!” Jack runs in but Hook dodges! Hook fires off fists in the corner, but the ref back shim off. Jack bails out but Hook pursues. Jack knees low, RAMS Hook into railing, and then CHOPS him! Jack talks trash on fans, brings Hook around and whips him, only for Hook to reverse! Jack hits railing and tumbles up and over! Hook goes out after Jack to fire off fists! The ref reprimands but Hook clotheslines Jack back over the railing! Hook then lines up a shot, and he FLYING FOREARMS off the railing!

Fans rally, Hook hurries in and he clinches, but Jack throws elbows! Jack whips, Hook reverses and runs in, but blocks a boot! Jack CLAWS Hook’s face! Jack goes up to MISSILE DROPKICK! Cover, TWO! Hook hangs tough but Jack lets his hair down. Jack drags Hook up to CLUB him on the neck! Fans chant “YOU STILL SUCK!” Jack CHOPS Hook, CLUBS him, and then climbs up a corner just to soak up heat. Jack goes back to Hook, stomps him and digs his boots in, but the ref counts. Jack lets off, drags Hook up, and TOSSES him out. Fans boo but Jack soaks it up as AEW goes picture in picture.

Jack slides out after Hook, CLUBS him on the back, and ROCKS him with a forearm! But Hook turns it around to COHP! Hook CHOPS Jack against railing, then CHOPS him against the apron! Jack knees low, CLUBS Hook, then refreshes the ring count. Jack brings Hook around to fake a chop and just poke Hook in the eyes! Jack puts Hook in, covers, TWO! Jack is annoyed but the fans rally for Hook. Jack stands Hook up, but Hook throws body shots! Hook runs but Jack CLOBBERS him! Jack stands on Hook for a cocky cover, TWO! Jack wraps on a chinlock and he grinds Hook down. Hook fights up and throws elbows!

Jack throws Hook by his hair! The ref reprimands but Jack drags Hook up to put on ropes. Jack CHOKES Hook, the ref counts, and Jack lets off at 4. Then Jack stands on Hook to CHOKE him! That looks a bit like Captain Charisma… Jack goes out and BOOTS Hook off the ropes! Jack then aims as Hook rises, and Jack feints the springboards, and flips off the fans instead! But Hook rushes over to fire off hands! The ref counts, Hook whips but Jack reverses and Hook hits buckles hard! Hook flops to the apron as Dynamite returns to single picture. Jack goes out after Hook, brings him up, and aims for the floor!?

Hook holds onto ropes but Jack keeps trying! Jack CLUBS Hook, CLUBS him again, and then shifts to bring Hook up. But Hook clinches to T-BONE SUPLEX to the floor! A camera gets clipped on the way down! Fans lose their minds while the ref checks both men! A ring count begins, Jack is down on the ramp but Hook crawls to ringside. Hook stands at 3 of 10, rolls in at 4, and he leaves Jack to the count. Jack stirs at 7 of 10, but Hook goes out after him! Hook puts Jack in the ring, but then Jack flops out the side! Hook goes back out after Jack, but Jack POSTS him! And then drapes him out, DRAPING DDT to the floor!

Jack leaves Hook behind now and he wants a count out! The FTW doesn’t have Champion’s Advantage so it’s on Hook to return! The count is 5 of 10 and Hook is still down. The count reaches 7, and then 8! Jack already gloats like he’s won, but Hook springs up and in at 9.5!! Jack is stunned and the fans are fired up! Jack kicks Hook but Hook glares up at Jack. Fans rally for Hook as Jack kicks him more! Hook swings, Jack waistlocks, but Hook elbows out! Jack still waistlocks to GERMAN SUPLEX! But Hook’s right up! And Jack can’t believe it!

Alex Marvez is on location.

Alex Marvez says he’s on the tail of the hottest story in pro-wrestling! Will Chris Jericho join the Don Callis Family? He heard of a secret meeting, so he wants in on it. Alex has his cameraman watch Jericho and Callis having dinner at a restaurant, but they’re spotted! Security ushers Alex and crew away, what will the future be for Jericho and Callis?

 

Last night, MJF and Adam Cole met for another bro session.

Max wanted Cole to understand that they are newly founded BFFs. So as much as MJF likes Cole, what’re they doing in a parking lot? Max, it is really important that you face your fears, and that’s spicy food- poor people. What? Well, then both fears? Anyway, it is important that they face these fears as a team. MJF says okay, until he realizes they’re in the parking lot of Boston’s own Kowloon. Cole wants him to go to a Chinese restaurant in Boston?! YES! Now c’mon! MJF begrudgingly steps inside, and he talks about last week’s match, and how he stood in front of 95 THOUSAND “Maximaniacs” all chanting his name, as he took on all 675 pounds of Big Bill!

MJF exaggerates how he scooped and slammed Bill through the ring, and Cole tells him that is not how it went. And Cole knows, because he was in that match! The waiter brings their food: big plates of spicy wings, and a big bowl of rice to share. MJF hopes this isn’t too spicy. Baby steps, Max. OOOH very hot. Cole is handling it better than MJF but the drinks arrive just in time. MJF CHUGS his water. And even the other drink. Cole, too, actually. Such good water. Yes, it’s Boston and the tap water here is disgusting, but that is great water. They call the waiter over. This water tastes funny. No, that is alcohol. WHAT THE-

And so, things get a bit tipsy. MJF retells the story of him against Big Bill, but now there were 99 thousand fans, and Cole stops MJF. MJF’s told this story 8 THOUSAND times, he gets it. But hey, hey! That guy reminds him of Sammy Guevara. Nah, bro, that is a dead ringer for Daniel Garcia. But hey, Cole is proud of MJF for facing his fears. So, as friends, there is one thing left to do. DOUBLE CLOTHESLINE~! They go nuts, and they drunkenly go to double clothesline the waiter!! What state will these two be in when it finally comes time for the Blind Eliminator Tag Tournament Finals?

 

Alex Marvez continues following Jericho.

“Al Scoops” got another hot tip that Jericho and Callis are arriving right now, so he walks up to a white limousine pulling up. And out steps Callis and Jericho! Alex asks if there’s been a decision made in their partnership. Callis says the only “decision” is that they both think Alex is an idiot. Jericho says “FAT headed idiot.” Security keeps Alex back while Callis & Jericho head into the arena. Will there be a decision announced by the end of the night?

 

Britt Baker VS Kayla Sparks!

The Doctor may be from the Steel City but she’s more than welcome here in Bean Town! Will Britt get back on track here tonight?

The bell rings and Britt circles with Kayla. They tie up, Britt waistlocks but Kayla elbows free. Kayla whips, Britt ducks ‘n’ dodges and SLINGBLADES! Fans fire up for Britt and she brings out the glove already! Britt spells it out, “D! M! D!” Britt runs in but into a BOOT! Kayla fires up, runs in, but Britt spins her, kicks low, and BUTTERFLY SUPLEXES! Then she reels Kayla back in, FISHERMAN SCREW! And then the RINGS OF SATURN, into the LOCKJAW!! Kayla taps, Britt wins!

Winner: Britt Baker, by submission

All Britt needed was a spark to get back in the win column! Will she fire back up for the Summer and get back to title contention?

 

Backstage interview with MJF & Adam Cole.

Renee is with the AEW World Champion and his new pal, and she says they are in the finals of the tag tournament against Guevara & Garcia. That means they’re that much closer to becoming AEW World Tag Team Champions. Are either of them surprised at the chemistry they have found? Cole says not at all! They’ve caught lightning in a bottle, and there are now two better than them! They’ll win tonight and go on to become your NEW AEW World Tag Team Champions! Ain’t that right, Max? MJF agrees, they have one plan and that is Plan A: double clothesline, win the tournament.

Unlike Guevara and his “skank wife,” they don’t need Plan B! Then there’s “Danny,” they will dance all over your face, make you look like a disgrace, right here in Bean Town! Because they’re Better Than You, BAYBAY. Which reminds MJF, he got Cole a little something. BRB. MJF goes off screen to then bring over matching trunks! No way! So way! That’s funny, cuz Cole got them something, too. Matching jackets! And on top of that, one more thing. But you gotta wait and see. Aw, c’mon, don’t tease him like that. MJF & Cole head off, and Roderick Strong hurries over. Renee asks what his thoughts are, but he says not right now.

Is Roddy worried MJF is still luring Cole into a trap? Or is he just worried that he’s being replaced

 

Blind Eliminator Tag Team Tournament Final: MJF & Adam Cole VS Sammy Guevara & Daniel Garcia!

This could be the make or break moment for both these teams! #BetterThanYouBAYBAY have surprisingly meshed together, but it seems the dysfunction between Spanish God & Dragonslayer has only returned. But will that “Plan A” double clothesline work out for MJF & Cole? Or will Sammy & Danny pull together when push comes to shove?

Wait, Chris Jericho makes his entrance now? The Ocho did say he wants to see his proteges fly on their own, so it seems he wants to see that in person. Fans sing Judas as the pyro goes off, and Jericho shouts to cut the music! Fans boo, Jericho flips the fans off, but then Boston keeps singing on their own. And then here comes MJF & Cole as Jericho joins commentary. MJF wonders, though, why is his theme playing twice? Because IT’S A MASH UP!! MJF is so happy and he hugs Cole, but Cole lets it slide because this is a big moment. Fans join in on the “BOOM!” and on the “ADAM COLE, BAYBAY!” but will Boston get to join in on the celebration?

The teams sort out and fans are thunderous for “DOUBLE CLOTHESLINE!” Garcia steps to the champ, and he stops the ref from signaling the bell, so he can do his dance! MJF says okay, and he gives it right back on Garcia! Garcia still keeps the ref from signaling, and does his dance again! MJF gives it back again! MJF says, “You people wanna see a dance off?!” Fans are torn but MJF’s chant still echoes out, “DANCE OFF! DANCE OFF!” MJF goes out to hit a button, and now disco music plays?! Garcia calls Guevara in, and of course the sports… enner-tay-ners start off. And they do their best Saturday Night Fever even though it’s Wednesday!

Fans boo and MJF gives thumbs down, but it’s not like Sammy and Danny are bad. Sammy reverse wheelbarrows so Danny can flip him up and over! Sammy then spins and does his pose, and Danny slides in to stick his head out under Sammy’s leg? Uh… Okay… MJF pops ‘n’ locks his way and does some air guitar even, before he spins and poses like Sammy. MJF kips up and Cole is completely at a loss for works. But now MJF expects Cole to dance?! Boston wants it, too! Cole gives a little shimmy, shake, thrust, thrust, thrust, but MJF says stop, stop, stop! The music stops, MJF tries to explain to Cole dancing versus that, but then Sammy & Danny CLOBBER them both!

Fans boo, they were just starting to have fun! But Sammy bails out, the bell finally rings, and Garcia drags MJF up into a headlock. MJF endures, fights up, powers out, and drops down. Garcia hops over, but stops when he sees Cole show punch! The ref reprimands Cole, but MJF pokes Garcia in the eyes! The ref reprimands, but then Cole pokes Garcia in the eyes! The ref reprimands Cole, but MJF and Cole pinball Garcia between haymakers! MJF DECKS Garcia and fans fire up! MJF and Cole call for it, and Cole hops in! They double whip, but Sammy saves Garcia! Fans boo as the JAS regroup and rush back up, but into double forearms!

Fans fire up and MJF rallies them. Is MJF really gonna do it? MJF shimmies, shakes, builds speed, and builds speed, and builds speed, but then just poses! Fans cheer and MJF smiles, but then Sammy YANKS Cole down and Garcia CLOBBERS him! Fans boo as Garcia and Sammy put up their dukes. But Garcia says the fans don’t deserve his dance anymore, and Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Garcia drags MJF up, bumps him off buckles, and then stomps a mudhole in. The ref counts, Garcia flexes while standing on MJF, but then Garcia lets off at 4. Garcia drags MJF from the corner, tags in Sammy, and Sammy stomps MJF now. Sammy stares Cole down, has MJF on the ropes, and kicks the ropes to jam up MJF! Sammy brings MJF up, puts him on the ropes again, and CHOPS! MJF scrambles for his corner but Sammy RAMS him into the JAS corner! Tag to Garcia and he stomps and UPPERCUTS! Cole rallies the fans but Garcia keeps MJF down with a facelock.

MJF endures, fans rally, but Garcia leans his weight on the hold. MJF powers up but Garcia knees him low! And then sucker punches Cole! Garcia soaks up the heat and goes back to MJF for a knee drop! Tag to Sammy as Garcia stands on MJF’s head. The ref reprimands, but Garcia lets off and Sammy brings MJF up. Sammy CHOPS MJF off his feet! Sammy paces around, brings MJF up, and bumps him off buckles. Sammy argues with the ref and Garcia CHOKES MJF! The ref has to keep Cole in now and that just lets the JAS mug MJF! Sammy then brings MJF out of the corner, gives some Latino Heat, and snap suplexes!

Sammy rolls to bring MJF up, and he hits DOS AMIGSO! Dynamite returns to single picture as Sammy leaves MJF down to the corner. Sammy climbs up, but MJF slow rolls away! Sammy hurries to drag MJF away, but MJF pokes him in the eye! MJF scoops, Sammy slips free, and the two collied head to head! Sammy falls, MJF wobbles and flails, but he steadies himself, only to fall on Sammy’s yammy! Fans fire up as both men crawl, hot tag to Garcia and he drags MJF away! MJF BOOTS Garcia away, hot tag to Sammy! Sammy grabs MJF’s legs but MJF BOOTS him away now! So both Sammy & Danny grab a leg!

The JAS drags MJF away, and they call for double clothesline! Only for MJF to dodge it! Hot tag to Cole! Colle dodges Garcia, BOOTS Sammy, ELBOWS Garcia, and then BOOTS Garcia! Fans fire up with Cole and he reels Garcia into a fireman’s carry. Garcia slips free and shoves Cole into Sammy! Sammy falls, Cole uses 52 Fakeout to mule kick Garcia! And SUPERKICK again! Garcia flounders and fans fire up with Cole! Cole goes up the corner, leaps, but Garcia avoids the Sunrise! Garcia dodges Cole to stomp away in the corner! Fans boo, Garcia just dances at the ref! But Cole SUPERKICKS Garcia down again!

Fans fire up as the kneepad comes down! Cole aims, runs, but Sammy CLUBS Cole first! And springboards in, into a SUPERKICK! Fans fire up and MJF is back! Is it time?! Jericho is upset on commentary but everyone shouts “DOUBLE CLOTHESLINE!” Tag to MJF and they drag Sammy up! They double whip Sammy, to DOUBLE- NO, Sammy ducks it, to DOUBLE SPANISH FLY!! Cover on MJF, TWO!! Sammy is furious but he goes up a corner, to SUPER FLYING- NO, MJF catches Sammy to a dragon sleeper! CROSS- NO, Sammy spins it around! They go to ropes, but Cole tags in before the O’Conner Roll!

Sammy has MJF but Cole SUPERKICKS Sammy down! MJF stands and the fans fire up again! MJF & Cole nod, and they drag Sammy up! They double whip but Garcia tags in! Sammy holds ropes, Danny DOUBLE CHOP BLOCKS! Fans boo as Garcia gets the legs! DRAGONTAMER!! Fans boo as Cole endures and reaches out! Danny drags him away! Cole goes to the other side to ROPEBREAK! Garcia lets go to stomp away on Cole’s legs! Fans boo as Garcia runs, but Cole dumps him out onto Sammy! Fans fire up again and MJF returns! Fans fire up as Cole tells MJF to do it for real! MJF is hesitant, but he still builds speed!

MJF stops himself, not ready to face that fear. So Cole SUPERKICKS Sammy and SUPERKICKS Garcia! Cole tells MJF he can do it, and fans are thunderous! MJF is reencouraged, Cole holds the ropes for him, and MJF DIVES!!! Even MJF is shocked by what he pulled off! MJF hurries to get Garcia up and in for Cole, and Cole is up top! PANAMA SUNRISE!! And then he goes to MJF! Fans want it, Cole and MJF shout “DOUBLE CLOTHESLINE!” Tag to MJF, they double whip Garcia, to DOUBLE CLOTHESLINE!!! Cover, MJF & COLE WIN!!

Winners: MJF & Adam Cole, by pinfall (NEW #1 Contenders to the AEW World Tag Team Champions)

Boston erupts in celebration as MJF and Cole win the tournament! But will they finish the sto- er, mission and take those tag titles from FTR?

As for Sammy & Danny, Jericho is there on the ramp to meet them, and he says it’s okay. But Sammy & Danny walk past him? Is this a bad sign of what’s to come for the JAS?

Back to Cole and MJF, Cole is handed the world title, and he means to hand it to MJF, but he looks at it longingly. MJF sees that, and gets offended! He snatches the belt from Cole and asks what the hell! Cole defends it meant nothing, and they can both get the tag titles. Fans chant “HUG IT OUT!” and MJF sees that’s right, it’s on him. They hug, but MJF then looks at Cole with some worry. Will these two stay on course until- Wait! Here comes Cash Wheeler & Dax Harwood! FTR are here and heading down the ramp towards their next challengers. All four men stare down and talk some trash while fans lose their minds.

Fans chant “This is Awesome!” as they get to see a preview of Collision on the 29th. MJF says he can’t wait, but will he and Cole prove they are the top guys in AEW? Or will FTR prove they are better than a thrown-together team, and you know it?

 

Backstage interview with Best Friends, as well as Darby Allin & Nick Wayne.

Renee is with Trent Beretta, Chuck Taylor, Orange Cassidy, Kris Statlander, and the Relentless Icon with his young protégé. She says there is a lot of action happening here! First, Statlander’s TBS Championship is on the line for Rampage against Marina Shafir. Second, Trent & Chuck are going to challenge The Lucha Brothers for the ROH World Tag Team Championships at Death Before Dishonor, also this Friday. And then a rare night off for Cassidy and his International Championship. But then to Darby & Nick, they will be in the Royal Rampage, the winner getting a shot at the AEW TNT Championship at All Out 2023.

Renee knows how much the TNT title means to Darby, so what would it mean to have that title back? Well, y’know who else is in that match? Swerve Strickland. Swerve’s wanted Darby’s attention and now he’s got it. Darby vows to win the whole damn thing. But quick question for Orange. Darby has an old friend that he owes a favor to, and he’s not asking for a handout. But without him, Darby wouldn’t be here. He took Darby in when he was homeless, and that man is AR Fox. How about Cassidy gives Fox a shot? Yeah, Darby, they’re cool. He’ll uh, give Fox that shot. Cool. In that case, next week on Dynamite, Cassidy VS Fox for the International Championship!

Sweet. Hands in, everybody. Darby and Nick choose not to, but Renee joins in. One, two, three, “Back to you guys!”

 

Blood & Guts: Blackpool Combat Club VS The Golden Elite!

Different philosophies in pro-wrestling have always clashed, but never quite as violently as these two diametrically opposed teams. Animosity, betrayal and bloodshed have defined this feud, but only a match this sadistic and massive can end the war! Forget winning, who will survive the most brutal match in AEW?

Omega gets up, Pac SOBATS, KICKS, SOBATS and DROPKICKS! Fans are torn but Pac and Claudio stomp Omega as Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Pac and Claudio aren’t exactly friends, but Claudio CHOKES Omega on the ropes, and Pac adds his boot! They can agree that they don’t like Omega. Claudio UPPERCUTS Omega, but then Pac steps in to DECK Omega and dig his boot sin. Claudio steps in and he digs his boots in! They kick Omega back to the red ring, and Omega goes to another corner.

Claudio smothers Omega in a corner, Pac CLUBS Nick, then he feeds Hangman to Yuta’s CHAIRSHOT! Yuta then JAMS Nick and Nick falls to the apron.

They double whip but Konosuke crisscrosses them, and then DOUBLE GERMAN SUPLEXES them! Fans cheer that show of strength, and Konosuke meets Omega. Omega kicks low and snatches the chair! But Konosuke DECKS Omega! Konosuke runs, to LARIAT Omega inside out! Moxley brings out something from under the ring. It’s a BED OF NAILS?!?! Moxley puts that in the ring, and then in a corner!

Fans are losing their minds again, Moxley IS a sicko! Moxley drags Omega up, but Omega fights back! Moxley ROCKS Omega, but Omega holds ropes to deny the whip!

And he ELBOWS Moxley, but Moxley SHOTGUNS Omega into the bed o’ nails!! Fans are losing their minds and Moxley is salivating! Moxley drags Omega up and brings him around, to scoop SLAM him on the nails!! Omega writhes and even Moxley seems surprised he’s getting to live out this sadistic dream!

Konosuke DECKS Ibushi, CHOPS Omega, and then runs, into a DOUBLE KICK COMBO! And they get the arms! GOLDEN- NO, Pac & Claudio save Konosuke!

Ibushi, Nick and Omega keep Claudio down and Moxley is cuffed! Matt helps Hangman CHOKE Yuta, and he’s fading out! MOXLEY SURRENDERS!!! The Golden Elite win!!

Winners: The Golden Elite, by surrender

It’s over! It’s finally over! Omega was proven right that heart, passion, soul, friendship and love win out over hate and anger! That is why the BCC’s team fell apart while the Golden Elite stuck it out. Though it is perhaps ironic that after all the blood, sweat, thumbtacks and shards of glass, it was Moxley’s concern for Yuta is what broke him in the end. Will the BCC start to see things The Elite’s way? What will be next for both factions now that the war is over?


My Thoughts:

A really wild night for Dynamite, though obviously mostly based off the Blood & Guts main event. That was without a doubt the most insane B&G, the most insane 10 Man Tag, the most insane anything all year and perhaps the last several years. It went the entire second hour, and even then technically went over the two hour block. The one scary moment was Ibushi doing the standing moonsault onto Moxley and the bed of nails, and then Ibushi clutches his wrist. I thought he nicked it on a nail and would need to be rushed outta there to close up the artery or something, but thankfully he was fine.

And in the end, I figured The Elite would win, but nice detail that Pac and Konosuke ditched the team, and that Moxley was the one to say enough, all so Yuta wouldn’t suffocate. I don’t know if the BCC will ever turn back to Faces, but the seeds were planted since Moxley isn’t a complete psycho. And as for The Elite, with Ibushi in AEW, maybe we see the Golden Lovers go for some gold together, Hangman & Bucks try for Trios titles, something big like that so that they can truly be the Golden Elite.

Speaking of gold, lots of big news for this big wrestling weekend (mostly Friday the 21st). Kris Statlander defends her TBS title, that’ll be a good defense against Marina Shafir. Cassidy VS Fox for next week, that’ll be great. Royal Rampage being for a shot at the TNT title at All Out in September, who knows who wins that. Though, I feel like Darby mentioning Swerve already cancels him out so that Darby, Nick Wayne and who knows who else take on The Mogul Embassy in full at All Out. The disappointing news is that Best Friends get a tag title match with Lucha Brothers. Not because it’ll be a bad match, no, because both teams are great. But we’ve barely seen Lucha Brothers or Best Friends on ROH TV lately, and it should’ve been The Kingdom, not Trent & Chuck.

Good squash win for Britt, but I was really expecting her to call someone out or be called out, or even just give us a silent stare down with someone. Really fun FTW Championship to open the night, and nice little cinematic where Jack Perry quite literally “buries” his old gimmick. I really do mean it when I said Beethoven’s Fifth doesn’t really fit Jack Perry at all, I was thinking he’d get some kind of 90s grunge to replace his 80s pop rock, but I guess AEW can’t keep throwing around money at hit songs. But of course Jack cheats to get the title, this is going to be a very telling next phase for both young guys in telling story with character, not just actions.

And of course, a lot of great story intermingling with the Blind Eliminator Tag Tournament Final. Alex Marvez could neither confirm nor deny Jericho joining up with Don Callis, and that naturally affects how Guevara & Garcia feel about Jericho. The “bro time” promo from MJF & Cole was hilarious stuff, probably their best yet, and nice detail that Roddy is being left out of things. The little dance battle was rather silly, but also great stuff, as MJF was legit in there and then Cole just starts bumpin’ & grindin’ the air in a much more obvious way than Garcia does. MJF & Cole winning was the right choice for many reasons, and nice little seed of dysfunction planted as MJF misunderstands Cole holding the belt. MJF & Cole VS FTR is going to be great stuff, but it still feels like things break down and MJF VS Cole is our AEW World Championship match at All Out.

My Score: 9/10

The bell rings and the fans fire up as Jeff swings his rally towel. Sammy smiles as he gets his dream match, and Jeff sends the towel flying! Free souvenir and the fans fire up!

Jeff pushes Sammy into the ring, then stomps away on the apron. Jeff stands on Sammy’s neck, Sammy can only endure while the fans boo.

The fans fire up again while both men are down! Sammy crawls, Jeff stalks him, and Jeff puts Sammy in the ring. Jeff brings a chair along, storms up and CHUCKS the chair into Sammy’s face!

The fans lose their minds all over again, and “This is Awesome!” as both men stir in the wreckage! Sammy drags Jeff up, puts him in the ring, then goes up the corner. Sammy aims again, SHOOTING STAR onto knees!! A double-edged save, as Sammy’s own knees hit Jeff in return! Both men rise up, Jeff kicks and TWIST- NO, Sammy slips free to torture rack, GO TO HOSPITAL! Cover, Sammy wins!

Winner: Sammy Guevara, by pinfall

Jeff’s nose was already busted by the Shooting Star Press, that GTH definitely made it worse! Jeff’s losing streak continues, but WILL HOBBS is here to get Sammy!! SPINEBUSTER!! And then the spineless Don Callis saunters out here to applaud this. Hobbs says he told Sammy he’d get him, and now, WORLD’S STRONGEST SLAM!! The fans boo but the Powerhouse stands over Sammy. Will the Don Callis Family look to end Sammy’s career once and for all?

 

Backstage interview with Brian Cage & Prince Nana.

Renee Paquette is with The Machine ahead of the huge match announced for next Wednesday Night Dynamite. Cage, Swerve & Samoa Joe VS Hangman, Hook & RVD. Is Cage going to keep his sights firmly on Hook in this match? Nana says there Renee goes, all these questions. She’s moving real spicy. But Cage says he’s got something to say! It doesn’t matter who he teams with, it doesn’t matter who Hook teams with, all that matters is he gets Hook. Cage says he’ll be real with Hook. Hook doesn’t belong here. “I think deep down, you don’t even wanna be here. You come in here as some fab flavor of the month.

“And the fact that I go out there and they cheer your name, people want to see you, people wanna see you perform, they buy your merchandise and not Brian Cage’s, yeah, it pisses me off. This is what I love. This is what I wanna do. And everybody cheering for you, when they should be cheering for me… I’m what a wrestler should look like! I’m what a wrestler is! And the fact that I take a back seat to you, week after week, I’m sick of it! And next Wednesday, as I said, it doesn’t matter who your partners are, you’re getting your ass beat.” The Machine has issued an ultimatum, will he, The Realest and THE AEW World Champion crush the Cowboy, the Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil and the One of a Kind?

 

Private Party speaks.

Isiah Kassidy says, “Allow us to reintroduce ourselves in case you don’t know, but you probably should know, but it’s all good. It’s all good.” Marq Quen, Isiah Kassidy, and their personal AEW security, “Cheesecake.” They are Private Party, AKA the future AEW Tag Team Champions. And since 2024 started, they said they were gonna put all teams on notice. And guess what they’ve been doing? Shooting straight to the top! They are in the power rankings! Top five, top five, no one better alive. When it comes to Private Party, they talk the talk, walk the walk, and wherever they go, it is litty litty in the city. Wait, what?

Zay makes it a song and Quen joins in. Litty, litty, litty in the city! Well, we’ll work on that, Cheesecake. For now, they’re heading out to have some fun. Will Quen & Kassidy be waiting on the other side of Revolution to challenge whoever holds the gold?

 

Blackpool Combat Club speaks.

Jon Moxley says, “Well I am in a pissy mood now. We’re gonna ruin our reputations as gentlemen, as ambassadors for this great sport, spending extra time after a match teaching a lesson to this FTR, a lesson they should already know. Cuz never in the history of time has it ever been a good idea to provoke the Blackpool Combat Club. But you know what they say: You can’t fix stupid. But you can choke it. FTR, they are the standard bearer, they are the benchmark of great tag team wrestling week in and week out, on a nightly basis. A team all these young teams look up to and aspire to be.

“You don’t think we know tag team wrestling? You don’t think we know tag team wrestling in and out? You don’t think we are every bit the artists when it comes to tag team wrestling that you are?” Moxley and Claudio can read each other’s minds? What is Moxley thinking right now? Claudio says it’s Renee’s glutes. And? And how when you’re good, you tell everybody. But if you’re great, people tell you. BCC don’t talk about being #TopGuys, wearing stars on their gear, telling everyone how good their matches are. BCC don’t care. They don’t have to. They get results! They take pride in what they do. They don’t play this, they are this.

Moxley says that is exactly what he was thinking. See you Wednesday, FTR. Will Moxley & Claudio prove who the real top guys are around here?

 

Backstage interview with Ruby Soho.

Renee is with the Runaway, and she notes the “moving parts” in her life right now. Last week, Ruby ditched Saraya, and now Angelo Parker has, uh, requested time alone with her. What’s she gonna do? Before Ruby can answer, in step Saraya & Harley. Saraya forgives Ruby. And Harley forgives Ruby, too. Oh, they forgive her? The thing is, Saraya, Ruby ain’t sorry. Oh so it WAS Parker who- Ruby says before Saraya starts, she needs to say this. Ruby knew. She knew the whole time that this thing that happened to her, Saraya was behind it. Ruby is hoping that maybe it was because Saraya was doing what she thought was best for Ruby.

But Ruby’s a grown-ass woman! She knows what is best for her, and right now, that’s space. Especially from Saraya. Ruby heads out, Saraya tells Harley it’s time to end this. Harley knows what to do. She brings out her “knife.” That’s a soup spoon. Oh, she’s played knife-spoon before! Okay, time to go. Saraya leads Harley away, just what is going to happen between the Outcasts next?

 

BREAKING NEWS for next week’s Rampage!

Back at its regular time of 10 PM Eastern, we will see Anna Jay VS Mariah May! Will The Queenslayer still be the Star of the Show? Or will Toni Storm’s biggest fan continue her win streak?

 

Six Man Tag: Dustin Rhodes & The Von Erichs VS Romero Crews, Shimbashi & Hitt!

When AEW is in Texas, it’s only natural that we’d see this trio combination happen! Will the legacy of the Rhodes & Von Erichs be unstoppable? Or will there be a Texas sized upset here tonight?

The trios sort out and Dustin starts against Hitt. Hitt’s a big man, and as he and Dustin tie up, Hitt puts Dustin on the ropes. Hitt throws body shots, whips, but Dustin stops and UPPERCUTS! Dustin bumps Hitt off buckles, tags Ross, and they whip Hitt to drop and DROPKICK! The fans fire up with Ross, Shimbashi tags in but Ross arm-drags him down! Ross grinds the arm, tags Marshall, and the brothers double whip. They DOUBLE ELBOW Shimbashi down, Marshall clamps on a headlock, then Dustin tags in. Marshall hands off Shimbashi but Shimbashi ROCKS Dustin! Shimbashi mocks the Von Erich claw, then tags in Crews.

Shimbashi, Hitt & Crews mug Dustin, then Crews taunts the Von Erichs. Crews whips, Dustin turns things around to a dragon sleeper! CROSS RHODES! Cover, but Hitt & Shimbashi attack! The Von Erichs get in, and they clamp on IRON CLAWS! Dustin gets Crews up, and we get FINAL RECKONING and DOUBLE CLAW SLAMS! Cover, Dustin’s team wins!

Winners: Dustin Rhodes & The Von Erichs, by pinfall

And it was only natural that the Texans would win here! Will these three stick together to go after some trios titles?

 

Backstage interview with “Timeless” Toni Storm.

Renee is with the AEW Women’s World Champion, as well as Luther and Mariah May. Renee brings up Deonna Purrazzo’s reaction to Wet Ink, and while it was very emotional, she didn’t mince words. What is Storm’s reaction back? Storm laughs it off, and Mariah joins in. Then Storm drags Mariah down and has the arm! “Is this what you want? Is this the move you wanted?! Huh?! This one?! Really?” Storm says no, she’ll give Deonna some of this! ANKLE LOCK! Mariah taps out and Storm says this is what you’ll be seeing! Storm tells Mariah good job. Mariah smiles, and Storm tells Deonna, “No one likes a drama queen, so piss off!”

Storm storms off, Luther nods and laughs, and Mariah follows after. Is Storm going to lose her mind before losing her title? Or will it be that much more of a tragic end to Storm’s Hollywood story at Revolution?

 

Darby Allin speaks.

“Sting coming back to wrestling, going undefeated as a team for years, and finally winning the AEW Tag Team Championships. It should’ve been a beautiful moment for Sting and his family, but you stole it. You disrespected Sting, you beat us down, you beat his sons down! I really don’t think you guys understand what you got yourselves into. But that’s our bloodstains on your white suits. And March 3rd, we’re coming for your blood. Sting’s last match, at Revolution.” The stakes have been raised again, because now the title match is a TORNADO TAG! Will either side survive when nothing can stop them?

 

Queen Aminata VS Anna Jay!

While she is one step closer to the ROH Women’s World Television Championship, the Queen of Guinea is still looking for that breakout win here in AEW. Will Aminata go on a Rampage and finally have it all? Or will the Queenslayer live up to the nickname?

The bell rings, the ladies shake hands to show sportsmanship, and the two circle. They tie up, Aminata waistlocks but Anna wrenches. Anna wristlocks, but Aminata spins through and wrenches around to wristlock back. Anna wrenches through to wristlock, waistlock, but Aminata pries the hold open, Aminata wrenches, steps over, gives that twerk attack, and then wristlocks again. Anna wrenches, steps over, and she gives the twerk back! The fans fire up and Aminata runs in. Aminata waistlocks, Anna wrenches but the hook kick is blocked! Aminata hits a hard takeover and fans fire up again!

Anna tries to headscissor but Aminata fights that off. Anna fights up to her feet, powers up but can’t power out as Aminata holds on tight. Anna RAMS Aminata into a corner, then ROCKS her! Anna runs in to LEG LARIAT! Anna then reels Aminata in, puts her in the ropes, and hits a DRAPING BACKSTABBER! Cover, TWO! Aminata stays in this but Anna stays on her in a corner. Anna ROCKS Aminata, and Rampage goes picture in picture.

Anna digs her boot in, the ref counts, and Anna lets off at 4. Anna bumps Aminata off buckles, stands over her, then puts her on ropes to CHOKE! Aminata endures, the ref counts, and Anna lets off. Anna storms up but Aminata hits low. Anna ROCKS Aminata, reels her in, and snap suplexes! Cover, ONE!! Aminata shows her toughness, but Anna SMACKS her off the mat. Anna talks some trash to the fans, then SMACKS Aminata off the mat again. Anna storms after Aminata in a corner, and ROCKS her again. Aminata turns things around to ROCK Anna! Anna dodges to ROCK Aminata again!

Anna stands Aminata up, runs her corner to corner and bumps her off buckles! Anna then goes to another corner for another buckle bump! Anna ROCKS Aminata, then bumps her off more buckles! The ref checks on Aminata but she shoves Anna away. Anna comes back to ROCK Aminata, then throws body shots. Anna runs Aminata into the corner and bumps her off buckles again! Anna CHOPS Aminata, snapmares her, and Rampage goes to break.

Rampage returns as Aminata fights up out of a chinlock. The fans rally, but Anna CHOPS! Aminata CHOPS back! Anna CHOPS again, so Aminata DOUBLE CHOPS! Anna falls, staggers up, and Aminata wrenches to reel her in! Snap suplex! Anna staggers, into a LARIAT! Aminata gets Anna up, spins her, snapmare and PENALTY KICK! The fans fire up with Aminata and she pounds the mat. Anna goes to a corner, Aminata runs in, HIP- NO, Anna dodges! Anna runs up but Aminata dodges! Aminata ROCKS Anna, sits her down, and goes side to side to BOOT WASH! Aminata drags Anna to a cover, TWO!!

Anna survives and the fans fire up again! Aminata drags Anna up and Alabama Lifts, but Anna fights! Anna wrenches to HOOK KICK! Then she clinches, FLATLINER! Cover, TWO!! Aminata survives and Anna is beside herself! Anna drags Aminata up, and QUEEN- JAWBREAKER! Aminata runs, but Anna gets around, QUEENSLAYER!! Aminata is in the body scissors, but she pushes back to a cover!! TWO!!! Anna lets go in time, but Aminata HEADBUTTS her down!! Cover, AMINATA WINS!!

Winner: Queen Aminata, by pinfall

And there it is! From her tournament win last night on ROH to a huge win here on Rampage, the Queen of Guinea is ready to reign! Anna shows respect with a handshake, will Anna find her own way back up the ranks?

 

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

Renee congratulates Willow on her big win over Skye Blue from Dynamite. She has to ask, though, is Willow happy with the win? Honestly… What the freakin’ hecc, Stoke?! Willow feels that was not what they talked about! There was no trust in her, no ethical/moral high ground! Kris cools things off. This was probably her fault, there should’ve been a team meeting. They didn’t talk about “being nice,” and Stokely’s probably never cheated on a match before. Stokely parrots all of this and Kris has him stop. For now, Kris will make sure this doesn’t happen again. Willow’s fine with that. No cheating. Shake on it? Kris literally shakes Stokely.

Willow says no, a handshake. Stokely shakes Willow’s hand, and finds she’s strong. Don’t forget it. The trio is good, for now. Will #BigStoke remember he is a manager, not the insurance policy?

 

Backstage interview with Ruby Soho & Angelo Parker.

Renee is once again with the Runaway, now joined by Cool Hand Ange. Ruby has been through a lot tonight already, but Parker did ask for this time. Renee will leave it to the two of them. Parker thanks her as she steps aside. Parker knows this is a weird place to be doing this, but this seems to be the only time they’re ever alone, so he’ll get right to it. Happy Valentine’s Day! He gives her a white rose, and says she has him feeling things he doesn’t know how to wrap his head around. There was that whole thing a few weeks ago with Harley and getting cake thrown in his face. He thought he lost her.

That’s why he slipped her the note. He thought it was the only way to reach her. And then he saw what Ruby did in the match that night, and Parker realized Ruby must feel the same. So he’ll go for broke and just- Ruby asks first if he wants to get a drink with her. Can’t tonight because of her redeye flight, but what about next week? Yeah, that works for him. Then pick her up on Wednesday, “Cool Hand.” Ruby leaves him with the flower but keeps the candy, and Parker smiles. The romance is still alive, but will Saraya & Harley try to kill it?

 

12 Man Tag: Bang Bang Scissor Gang VS The Dark Order & Team Triple J!

That’s right, Rampage is ending with a HUGE tag match! The AEW World Trios & ROH World Six Man Tag Team Champions are united, but will they truly mesh in the ring? Or will Evil Uno, Alex Reynolds, John Silver, Jay Lethal, Satnam Singh & Jeff Jarrett be grabbing up a lot of golden tickets tonight?

The teams sort out and we get Jay VS Jay as Switchblade starts against Black Machismo. They circle, tie up, and go around. The fans rally as the Jays end up in a corner. White has Lethal but Lethal turns that around, only for White to turn that back around. The ref counts, White lets off, but Lethal headlocks! White slips out to headlock, Lethal wrenches and headlocks to hit the takeover. White headscissors, Lethal kips free, and rolls reverse while fans chant “Let’s Go, Jay!” White kips free but Lethal headlocks again. White powers out to headlock, then facelock, then headlock again. Lethal powers out and Jarrett gets a cheap shot in!

White swipes at Double J but he gets away, and Lethal CLOBBERS White! Lethal stomps White, Sonjay talks trash, and Uno tags in. Uno & Lethal mug White, but white CHOPS Uno! White CHOPS Uno again, then storms up to put Uno in a corner. White CHOPS and fans fire up! Uno flounders, White tags Colten Gunn. Colten wrenches, whips, then says Guns Up! Colten hits a SPLASH! Then he runs up again to DROPKICK! Fans fire up with Colt and he drags Uno over. Tag to Max Caster, he brings Uno up and around to scoop SLAM! The fans fire up as Caster tags Bowens and sets Uno up for SCISSOR ME TIMBERS!

Bowens says “EVERYONE Loves the Acclaimed!” The rest of the gang BLASTS Triple J & Dark Order, and then Rampage goes picture in picture.

BBSG set up all around the ring, but they get dragged right out! The brawl is chaotic all around ringside! White SMACKS Lethal off the desk, Caster ROCKS Jarrett, Silver is after Bowens, Billy helps out there, and then BBSG regroup. The sassy six throw ’em up, for the GROUP GUN SCISSOR~! Things cool down and Bowens fires off on Uno. Bowens CLUBS Uno down, hears the fans rallying, and he brings Uno over to tag in Austin. White gets the fans singing “Oh~ Scissor Me Daddy~!” Austin JABS, JABS and then does his two step for the HAYMAKER! Uno flounders, Jarrett protests, but the ref reprimands.

Austin stands Uno up in a corner, whips him corner to corner, only to send him right back to where he started! Austin high-fives his dad, then runs up, but misses the splash! Uno hurries to the corner, Jarrett CLOBBERS Austin! Reynolds tags in, he stomps away on Austin, and then bumps him off buckles! Tag to Silver, and they double whip Austin for the double drop toehold! Then they double basement dropkick! Cover, ONE!! Silver stays between Austin and the BBSG, then hauls Austin up. Austin throws counter punches, but Silver ROCKS him! Silver RAMS Austin into the corner, tags Lethal, and they mug Austin.

Lethal stomps a mudhole in, Sonjay talks trash, and Bowens gets mad. The ref keeps Bowens back but that lets Uno CHOKE Austin! Lethal brings Austin up as Rampage returns to single picture. Lethal puts Austin in the corner, CHOPS him, then brings him over. Tag to Jarrett, they double whip but Austin reverses! Jarrett still gets a RUSSIAN LEG SWEEP! Jarrett puts Austin on ropes, to STRADDLE ATTACK! Fans boo as Jarrett struts! Jarrett then tags in big Satnam so he can CLUB Austin down! Satnam HEADBUTTS Austin to a corner, then stands him up. Satnam TOSSES Austin halfway across the ring!

Jarrett kicks Austin from the ropes to keep him in the ring, and Satnam stands Austin up. Another TOSS!! Satnam then BLASTS the BBSG! Billy stays up, he shoves Satnam but the ref has to back him down. Satnam hauls Austin up, taunts Daddy Ass, then brings Austin over. Tag to Reynolds, and Reynolds dares Austin to crawl to daddy. Reynolds whips Austin but Austin BLASTS Lethal and Uno! Austin goes up and over, hot tag to Billy! Billy rallies on the Dark Order with haymaker after haymaker! Kick to Reynolds, “SUCK IT!” FAMOUSER!! Uno runs up, blocks a kick, hand that to the ref and hits a NECKBREAKER!

Bowens is in to fire off Rock Paper SUPERKICK on Uno! But Silver BOOTS Bowens! And KNEES him at the ropes, to then GERMAN SUPLEX! But Caster BACKHANDS the Meat Man! But Satnam storms up after The Acclaimed! He gets each on by the neck, but Austin & Colten set up, FLYING HAYMAKER! The fans fire up but Lethal returns to handspring and LETHAL INJECTION!! Colten is in, he gets Lethal with COLT 45! But Jarrett wrenches into THE STROKE!! But White has Jarrett, BLADERUNNER!! White says SUCK IT, but Reynolds grabs White! Billy grabs Reynolds but Reynolds sends Billy into White!

White falls, Reynolds rolls Billy up, TWO!! Billy kicks low, runs and another FAM- NO, Reynolds dodges! But then Billy dodges Reynolds, Austin gets in, 3:10 TO YUMA!!! Cover, BBSG wins!!

Winners: Bang Bang Scissor Gang, by pinfall

That was fast and furious, and even with one miscommunication, the Acclaimed & Bullet Club Gold made it work! Will this six pack prove to be unstoppable?


My Thoughts:

A great Rampage here, stuffed to the brim for just a one hour show. Though, that’s probably because they lose two hours with no Collision. Great story progress for Ruby Soho through the pair of promos tonight. Ruby has confirmed she’s distancing herself from The Outcasts and growing closer to Parker, and that doesn’t sit well with Saraya. Harley is doubling down on being the crazy one, I’m thinking we get Ruby VS Harley to then give us Ruby VS Saraya at Revolution, Parker in Ruby’s corner for it all. Really good promo from Moxley & Claudio to hype up their match with FTR, and a great promo from Brian Cage to not just hype the Six Man and his feud with Hook, but to really help us understand where Brian Cage comes from as a character. He isn’t just Swerve’s heavy, he wants to be a top star, too.

Good promo from Private Party, kinda wish they’d done this one sooner. Still not sure why they aren’t feuding with the Hardys yet… Great promo from Toni Storm with her going extra nuts at Mariah’s expense, but also of course Mariah forgives Storm when Storm compliments her. Great match from Aminata VS Anna, and I was just thinking that this would be the right time for Aminata to win in AEW after her win in the ROH Women’s TV title tournament. AEW is clearly seeing Aminata’s full potential, she might even win the TV title. But at the same time, maybe she doesn’t win the ROH TV title so she can compete for an AEW title on the other side of Revolution.

Great opening match from the No Disqualification match, but ouch, that knee into Jeff’s nose. He was bloody right away, but a broken nose seems to be the extent of it. Sammy meanwhile getting beat up by Hobbs was a good story move, Sammy will surely want payback some time before Revolution. At the same time, Sammy could make for a good ally to Ospreay and Fletcher against the Don Callis Family as that feud continues into the Spring and Summer.

And great 12 Man Tag for the main event, though it wasn’t quite as frantic or chaotic as I expected. But still, a great detail of Billy being sent into White and White being a bit upset about it, but BBSG still wins. I would hope they don’t switch things into Acclaimed VS BCG so quickly, we’ve seen Acclaimed beat the Gunn sons plenty over the years. At least make this last until the super group either branches out for other titles or a trio gets a title match with BBSG. There really can be a lot of fun had with this big group, I hope they don’t squander it.

My Score: 8.8/10

Jon Moxley VS Dax Harwood!

The Blackpool Combat Club has been daring people to step up, and FTR did just that! They brawled on Collision and now The Maniac and #DaxTheAx battle here on Dynamite. Will Moxley prove the BCC are the elite of All Elite Wrestling? Or will Dax show everyone that FTR are still the #TopGuys?

The bell rings and the fans rally up for “FTR! FTR!” Dax stares down Mox, they circle and feel things out, and the fans start dueling. Dax and Mox still circle, tie up, and go around. Dax puts Mox in a corner, Mox turns that around, and the ref counts. The two scrap and let off, then Mox flips Dax off. Dax smirks, resets with Mox, and Dax headlocks. Mox gets free but Dax gets around to shove Mox, and then Dax flips Mox off! Fans fire up as the two reset, tie up, and go around again. Mox puts Dax in a corner, then goes up to taunt Dax.

Mox powers up and out but Dax runs him over! Things speed up, Dax slides under, but Mox gets around to SLEEPER! Dax flails and reaches out but Mox shifts to the BULLY CHOKE! Dax endures, the fans duel, and Dax shifts to roll Mox up, TWO!

Dax steps through the legs! Mox fights Dax off with kicks from below! Dax falls back, Mox storms up to clothesline Dax up and out! Dax tumbles to the floor and fans fire up again. Moxley storms out after Dax, brings Dax up and claws the eyes! Then Mox RAMS Dax into the railing! Dax tumbles up and over, Mox soaks up the heat from fans, then he grabs a chair. Mox sets that up near the railing but Dax CHOPS and CHOPS and JABS in return! Moxley ROCKS Dax, and again, but Dax hits back! Dax hurries up and over but Moxley kicks low! Mox trips Dax hard, then uses the legs to CATAPULT Dax into a POST!

Fans are feeling that one as Dax flops around! Moxley storms over while the ring count climbs. Moxley snarls as he hears it pass 5 of 10.

Moxley rains down fists, the fans count along, but Dax stops it at five! Dax brings Moxley out to SITOUT POWERBOMB! Cover, TWO! Mox is still in this but Dax brings him back in. Dax suplexes but Mox blocks! Mox and Dax go to ropes, Dax suplexes Mox and himself up and out of the ring! They hit apron and then the floor while Dynamite goes picture in picture!

The ref checks both Moxley and Dax, they’re both somehow okay to continue. Dax and Moxley slowly rise, Moxley getting to his feet first. Moxley staggers around, Dax slowly stands, and both men jump in at 9 of 10! The fans cheer as both men go forehead to forehead. They stand up and go haymaker for haymaker! Dax staggers, but he comes back to ROCK Moxl! Mox ROCKS Dax! They go back and forth with shots, faster and faster, then Mox trips Dax to a FIGURE FOUR LEGLOCK! The fans fire up and Dax endures! Dax reaches out, punches at Moxley’s legs, but Mox puts on more pressure! Dax falls back, it’s a cover! TWO!!

Dax reaches out, and he CLAWS Moxley’s face! The ref reprimands but Mox lets Dax go. Mox KICKS Dax’s leg out, then steps through, to an INDIAN DEATHLOCK! Dax endures again, and he CHOPS! And CHOPS! And CHOPS! Moxley CLAWS Dax’s face! The ref reprimands, Moxley lets off to sit up and rain down forearms! Dax endures, still in the deathlock, but then Moxley shifts to a cover, TWO!

But Moxley isn’t letting go! The ref tells him to stop, and then Cash Wheeler rushes out here! Cash punches away on Moxley, but Claudio CLOBBERS Cash! Claudio CLUBS Cash, reels him in, NEUTRALIZER!! The fans are torn as the BCC shows no respect to FTR! Moxley then gets Dax back in the REAR NAKED CHOKE! And Claudio puts Cash in a CROSSFACE! Cash endures and Dax fades out! BCC lets FTR go, showing no mercy. Will they do the same to all teams that stand in their way and the top spots in AEW?

 

BREAKING NEWS for Blackpool Combat Club!

With all of the AEW VS CMLL action, especially between the BCC and the luchadores, that on March 29th, Moxley, Claudio, Bryan and even Wheeler Yuta are going down to Arena Mexico to battle Mistico, Volador Jr, Blue Panther y Ultimo Guerrero in an 8 Man Tag! Will AEW return the favor with a win South of the border?

 

Backstage interview with The Don Callis Family.

Renee Paquette is with Konosuke Takeshita, “Powerhouse” Will Hobbs, and Don Callis himself as she notes Takeshita’s incredible roll. He beat Darby Allin, has two wins on Kenny Omega, and then did the unthinkable: He tapped Chris Jericho out with Jericho’s own move, the Walls of Jericho. What is next for the DCF now? Callis says they’re a victim of their own success! No one wants to wrestle Takeshita, Takeshita is the best rope to rope wrestler in the world. No one wants to wrestle Hobbs, either! The DCF has all the talent, and Revolution is coming. The best wrestler in the world needs to be on that PPV! The DCF needs to be on that PPV!

But they can’t find the talent for Takeshita, so Callis realized, he’s got all the talent right here! He looked within the family, and will give us a match that will have us all talking not just for years, but for decades! It will be DCF VS DCF when we see Konosuke Takeshita VS… Will Ospreay! Wait, Callis is willingly pitting “family members” against each other? Well, when Callis was growing up, Papa Callis would have a few drinks late at night, then make Don and his brothers fight in the backyard, every thing was fine with them. But the best part of this is that no matter what, the Don Callis Family wins.

And at the end of Revolution, no one will be talking about Sting! Everyone will be talking about Hobbs, Takeshita, Ospreay, Fletcher and the Don Callis Family’s Match of the Decade! A huge move by the malevolent mastermind, but will Ospreay appreciate this big money move by Callis?

 

Wardlow VS Barrett Brown!

The Undisputed Kingdom’s War Dog continues his warpath up the ranks, and surely has one eye on the AEW World Championship Triple Threat that’s looming. Will the Maestro of Mayhem have a symphony waiting for the winner on the other side of Revolution? Or will one of Austin, Texas’ own catch him off guard?

Adam Cole is on commentary for this, wanting to keep an eye on his Kingdom’s war machine. The bell rings and the fans chant for “WARD~LOW! WARD~LOW!” Wardlow stares Brown down, Brown storms up but Wardlow then powers him to a corner! Wardlow glares at Brown, the ref counts, so Wardlow drags Brown out to haul him right up top! WAR HAMMER already!! Wardlow grins and flexes while the ref checks. Wardlow admires himself on the tron and Cole smiles, and somehow Brown is still conscious! Cole says let’s wrap this up, so Wardlow gets Brown up, for a LAST RIDE!! Cover, Wardlow wins!

Winner: Wardlow, by pinfall

Cole says it was a pleasure to talk with everyone, though he barely said a thing. Wardlow scrapes Brown out of the ring, will he have his hands on gold soon enough?

 

AEW shares footage of The Young Bucks arriving earlier today.

And despite it being an entire week since their heinous attack on Sting & Darby Allin, Matthew & Nicholas Jackson still wear the blood-stained suits! They said it’s a lovely day, and they’re ready to get to work. But will Darius & Dante Martin humble the arrogant EVPs on the road to Revolution?

 

AEW TNT Championship #1 Contender’s Match: Adam “Edge” Copeland VS Daniel Garcia!

Though Christian Cage would never admit to it, it’s clear he fears both men in this match. The Patriarchy had to cheat to beat the living legend, and then they lost to the Red Death. Will Revolution get Rated R when Edge comes back for revenge? Or will Garcia prove he is the greatest wrestler of his generation by defeating one of the greatest of all time?

“Daddy Magic” Matthew Menard is on commentary to support Garcia. The bell rings and the fans rally up as the two circle. They feel things out, knuckle lock, then Edge ROCKS Garcia with a forearm! Edge KNEES Garcia to ropes, fires more forearms, then bumps Garcia off buckles. Edge fires more forearms, but lets off as the ref counts. The fans rally for “DANNY! DANNY!” and “ADAM! ADAM!” Edge wrenches and WRINGS Garcia’s arm out, and Garcia writhes. Edge clamps on the CROSSFACE but Garcia rolls it to a cover! ONE, so Garcia rolls and has a leg! ANKLE LOCK! Edge flails and scrambles to the ROPEBREAK!

Garcia lets go, Edge of course knows a lot about taking an Ankle Lock. The fans rally as the two reset and circle again. They tie up then fire forearms! Edge headlocks, Garcia body shots and powers free, only for Edge to run him over! Things speed up, Garcia hurdles, but Edge SPLASHES on the dropdown! Cover, TWO! Garcia kicks at Edge so Edge KICKS Garcia in the side! Edge stalks Garcia to a corner, then CHOKES him on ropes! The ref counts, Edge lets off, and the fans continue to duel. Edge drags Garcia up, headlocks, but Garcia wrenches out to elbow low. Garcia headlocks, Edge powers out, and Edge runs Garcia over again!

Things keep moving, Garcia drops down then hurdles again. Garcia drops down again, but avoids the splash! Garcia has the Oklahoma Roll, TWO! Garcia sweeps the legs and covers, ONE! Edge runs into a drop toehold, and Garcia uses that to hook the leg! Garcia then hooks up both legs, CLUBS Edge on the back, then does his dance! Then he STOMPS both knees! Edge writhes, but Garcia drags Edge up to fire forearms. Garcia CHOPS Edge to a corner, whips him corner to corner, but Edge reverses. Edge runs up but into a BOOT! Garcia hops up the corner to body scissor and he fires off elbow after elbow!

Edge wobbles, Garcia goes up again, and CROSSBODIES, but into Edge’s arms! Edge shifts to SHOULDER BREAKER! Garcia writhes while the fans fire up, and Edge drags Garcia back up. Edge whips Garcia hard into buckles, and Garcia falls back as Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Edge rises, has the ref move aside, and he runs to baseball slide dropkick Garcia outta the ring! Edge rests, does a backstroke, then mocks Garcia’s dance! Edge adds his own bit to it, then fetches Garcia. But Garcia fires off haymakers! Garcia whips, Edge reverses and Garcia is sent into steel steps! Edge stares Menard down, stalks Garcia, and Edge waves hi to fans in the front row. Edge has them move aside as he stands Garcia up and pushes him against railing! The ref reprimands as Edge fishhooks Garcia’s mouth! Edge lets off at 4 then soaks up the cheers and jeers. Edge borrows a fan’s sunglasses, then BREAKS them!?

Edge drags Garcia up, puts him in the ring, and then watches Garcia sit up. Edge runs up to KNEE Garcia in the back! Garcia writhes, but Edge slaps him around. Edge clamps on a chinbar armlock combo but Garcia endures. The fans rally, and Edge pushes that forearm into Garcia’s face. Garcia fights up, pries at the hold, then bounces to pop free! Dynamite returns to single picture as Garcia fires hands, but Edge BOOTS Garcia down! Edge stalks Garcia to a corner, puts him in a drop zone, and then goes up top. But Garcia rises to go after Edge! Edge and Garcia scrap as Garcia climbs, and Edge HOTSHOTS Garcia down!

The fans are torn as Edge storms his way back up the corner. But Garcia springs back up to trip Edge! Edge is stuck up top, and the fans fire up as Garcia goes after him! Garcia has a leg, SUPER DRAGON SCREW! Edge clutches his knee and the fans are thunderous as Garcia rises. Garcia fires hands on Edge, backs Edge down with shot after shot, then stomps away in the corner! The ref counts, Garcia digs his boots in, but still lets off so he can run side to side, BOOT WASH! Garcia drags Edge up but Edge fights the saido! Garcia still tries, but Edge CLUBS him! So Garcia gets the leg! DRAGON SCREW, and then a KNEE JAMMER!

The fans fire up and Garcia snarls as he looms over Edge. Garcia gets the bad leg, and drops an elbow right on the knee! And then another elbow on the knee! But Edge shifts around to go after an arm! FUJIWARA ARMBAR! But Garcia powers that to get an STF!! Another move Edge has felt in the past, and he reaches out! Garcia crabs an arm, half nelson modification! Edge still fights, headlocks out of the nelson, and then facelocks. Edge brings Garcia up, but Garcia wrenches out! Edge CLUBS away on Garcia but Garcia hits back! They brawl, the fans fire up, and Garcia kicks the bad leg! Garcia grabs it but Edge throws hands!

Garcia INVERTED DRAGON SCREWS the leg! The different direction catches Edge, and the fans fire up again! Garcia goes up a corner as Edge rises up. Edge hurries to CLUB Garcia! Edge climbs up but the bad leg slows him down. Garcia fires hands on that leg but Edge fires hands on Garcia’s back! Edge brings Garcia up, SUPER IMPALER!! Garcia writhes but Edge can’t make the cover! Edge crawls to a corner, rises up again, and the fans are thunderous! Edge aims as Garcia rises, and he runs in to- KNEE!! Garcia jackknife bridges, TWO!!! Edge escapes, scrambles to get Garcia’s arm, CROSSFACE!!

Garcia endures, reaches out, but NICK WAYNE ATTACKS! Killswitch/Luchasaurus is there with him, The Patriarch just screwed this whole thing up!! Nick stomps Garcia, Killswitchasaurus BOOTS Edge down! The fans boo as The Patriarchy mugs Garcia, with Christian Cage & “Mother” Shayna Wayne walking down the ramp. Captain Charisma saunters his way around the ring while fans boo as hard as they can, then he goes looking under the ring. Christian brings out two chairs! But Daddy Magic says NO! He takes a chair, now he and Christian have a standoff! But Luchasaurus CLOBBERS Menard from behind!

Fans boo again and Christian says that’s what Menard gets. The chairs are brought into the ring, Luchasaurus hauls Garcia up, JURASSIC CHOKE SLAM! Fans boo but then Nick drags Garcia onto a chair! Christian has the other, but then Edge gets in with a chair of his own! Edge JAMS Nick, JAMS Luchasaurus, then SMACKS Luchasaurus down! Edge and Christian have a showdown, the chairs CLASH and Christian is disarmed! Garcia gets to safety as Edge storms up on Christian! But Shayna LOW BLOWS Edge!! The fans boo but now Christian stomps away on Edge! Christian feeds Edge to WAYNE’S WORLD!

Luchasaurus hauls Edge up, EXTINCTION LARIAT! Fans chant, “Christian Sucks!” but he just smiles as he now sets Edge up on a chair! And he gets the other chair, tells Edge this is what he gets for still pursuing him, and then takes aim! CON-CHAIR-TO!!! The Patriarchy stand over the Rated R Superstar and Christian raises the TNT Championship. What lows won’t Christian sink to in order to hold onto that belt?

 

Samoa Joe is here!

The fans fire up for the AEW World Champion as he makes his way to the ring, ready for the face-to-face-to-face with his two challengers. The fans chant for “JOE! JOE! JOE!” as he gets the mic. “My name is Samoa Joe, and I stand here proudly your AEW World Champion.” The fans cheer that, and Joe says tonight he comes with the spirit of apology. When he became champion, he reenacted the ranking system to make sure that only the very best victims were served up in front of him to destroy and continue his championship reign. “And everything was going so well, until last week when Hangman Adam Page and Swerve Strickland came out here, battled tooth and nail for 30 minutes, to a draw.”

Fans boo the draw, and Joe says somehow, someway, he thought the Championship Committee would kick those two to the back of the line. But no, they took a page out of the Texas playbook to make this match bigger and dumber. Fans are a little torn on that line, but Joe says it seems we reward mediocrity around here. And instead of telling those pretenders they don’t deserve to be contenders, now at Revolution, Joe finds himself in a Triple Threat. “Obviously a crime has been committed against me, and now there must be repercussions. So I guarantee you this: You send your two bright stars into the ring with me, and I guarantee I am hurting one, if not both of them! So they may walk in, but I guarantee they will both limp out.”

The fans fire up for that! Joe says that he stands here the AEW World Champion, and there is nothing anyone can do about that. But then “Whose House?” “SWERVE’S HOUSE!” The fans fire up as Prince Nana leads the way for The Realest, doing his dance. Swerve already has a mic, and he steps into the ring. The fans chant, “Whose House?” “SWERVE’S HOUSE!” Swerve tells Joe, “When we started this whole thing, like I said, this wasn’t supposed to be personal, right? But as we inch closer and closer to Revolution, and the more that you run your mouth, I can’t help but get the feeling it’s becoming personal.”

Swerve tells Joe that when Joe won the title, Joe said… The fans cheer as Swerve seems to need a second to think. Swerve then says Joe said that the new championship protocol was about people showing up with their reputation and with their resumes. And also that hunger is what defines the greats. Well then if you look at Swerve, you’re looking at one of the greatest of all time. Fans cheer that! “No one out hustles me, no one out works me, and no one out grinds me. So you need to check my resume, and while you’re at it, you should proceed to put some respect on it, as well.” Fans cheer for that!

Swerve says 15 YEARS, he’s been grinding up and down, all in the hopes that somebody would one day see Swerve and go, “Y’know what? One day, Swerve might go down as one of the best int he world currently. Maybe one day.” Swerve then says after this past year, he’s proven that today is that day! He’s gone toe to toe with former world champions, and with some of the best legends AEW has to offer. The same thing every time: Swerve is left standing, and the fans have only one thing on their mind: “Whose House?” “SWERVE’S HOUSE!” And at Revolution, nothing changes! Except for one thing: the fact that Swerve will be holding the title above his head.

But then Hangman Page storms out shouting, “Hold on, hold on, hold on!” The fans are torn as The Cowboy says hey, first off, he wants to set the record straight! After last week’s match, he wasn’t mad. So when you write your weekly Dynamite reports, don’t put “Hangman was mad.” But everyone already knows that last week was BS! The fans are torn again, but Joe actually nods and agrees. Hangman says he signed a contract for a match to determine THE #1 contender to the World Championship, and the winner would be the contender. Swerve couldn’t do it! THIRTY MINUTES, and Swerve couldn’t do it!

So if this were up to Hangman, at Revolution, the match would be between two men who value and respect that title and everything that it stands for. Fans boo but Hangman says unfortunately, he doesn’t make the matches. So Swerve, you were “added” to this match. So Hangman wants to say something eye to eye and Swerve needs to hear it. Swerve says, “We gonna do this again?” Hangman says after everything Swerve has done to him, Swerve doesn’t deserve one second of Hangman’s time. Swerve doesn’t deserve for Hangman to give him five more minutes because he couldn’t get the job done! And Swerve does NOT deserve to be in this championship match!

But Joe steps in now. Back up, knock off the charades. This walking domestic dispute ends tonight! Joe knows what this is about. Each man thinks they can beat the other and just walk over Joe, but that’s not gonna happen! As far as they’re both concerned, he is Samoa Joe, and he’ll whoop both y’all’s asses!! Joe throws down his mic and storms out. Hangman and Swerve continue to argue, but will the numbers NOT spell disaster for Joe at Revolution?

 

Timeless Toni Storm presents… Wet Ink.

A beatnik jazz form of Seven Nation Army plays as the AEW Women’s World Champion asks, “What does this tuh-too remind me of? It reminds me of a girl I befriended because I felt sorry for her. A girl so naive, so needy, so desperate to make it, that she had my pity. You were my Young Girl, I showed you my ways. I brought you into Japan, I helped you sign a contract. I nurtured you on my bosom of brilliance, you suckled on my teet of talent. And now, you bit the tit that feeds you!” Storm is now in a tuh-too, er, uh, tattoo parlor with Luther and Mariah May, as she gets something put OVER the commemorative tattoo she and Deonna Purrazzo both have!

Storm continues to narrate, “Somewhere along the way, you forgot who you were. Thought you were the star of this story instead of just an extra. You want the old Toni Storm? Oh, you’ll get the old Toni Storm, and so much more. What do you do when you can’t change the past? You kill it!” The new tattoo? It’s a KNIFE going through the ducky!

Deonna Purrazzo responds.

Renee Paquette is now with The Virtuosa, having finished watching Wet Ink with the rest of us. Renee isn’t sure how she feels, so she can’t even imagine Deonna’s feelings. Deonna says that Toni Storm is what her family would call a yakkity yon. AKA, she talks too much. So Deonna will keep this short and sweet: “Toni, I’m gonna break your arm, b*tch!!” The leading lady may have crossed a line putting a dagger through Deonna’s heart, but will she lose that belt around her waist?

 

The Young Bucks step out of their stretch SUV.

They still haven’t changed out of the blood-soaked suits, and all they’ve done to prepare for their match is wrap their fists! Matthew Jackson says they’re gonna put on another banger, but are they taking the Air Wolf & Angel Dorado a little too lightly?

The Young Bucks VS Top Flight w/ Action Andretti!

The teams sort out and Nicholas starts against Dante. The fans rally for Top Flight as Dante stares Nick down. They tie up, Nick wrenches and wristlocks, but Dante goes to ropes. Dante flips through, WRINGS Nick out, and then dodges Nick to roll and headscissor. Nick shoves that away, Dante gets around to waistlock, but Nick switches and headlocks. Dante powers up and out, ducks ‘n’ dodges, then goes up and over as Nick runs in! Nick slides out, and he tells commentary to put respect on their names! Taz says he’s got them. Nick gets back in but Dante arm-drags him down! The fans rally as Dante grinds the shoulder.

Nick fights up, pulls Dante’s hair and whips, but Dante reverses. Nick avoids the arm-drag, but Dante avoids the kick! Dante wheelbarrows and arm-drags!

Dante ROCKS Matt, Darius ROCKS Matt, then Dante ROCKS him again! Matt pinballs between the Martins, Dante ENZIGIRIS! Dante puts Matt in the corner to A-LIST LARIAT! Tag to Darius, he snap suplexes Matt to then kip up and tag Dante. Dante slingshot SENTONS and fans fire up!

Nick runs in, Dante leapfrogs and Darius TOSSES Nick out! Nick ROCKS Darius back, but Darius sends up so Dante can CALF KICK Nick down! The Bucks regroup, the fans fire up, and Top Flight build speed, only for The Bucks to get out of the way. Top Flight just adjust course, but The Bucks dodge the dropkicks! The Bucks mug Top Flight, soak up the heat, then straighten up their suits. The Bucks shove Top Flight at the apron, but Top Flight jumps up and in, to then DOUBLE PLANCHA! Direct hit on both Bucks and the fans fire back up! Top Flight puts Matthew in, Dante bumps him off buckles and tags Darius.

Darius goes up and he DOUBLE STOMPS Matt’s arm! Dante snapmares Matt so Darius can basement dropkick! Cover, TWO! Darius whips, Matt reverses and Nick gets a cheap shot in! Darius DECKS Nick then BOOTS Matt! Darius dodges Nick ones, dodges twice, but Matt CLOBBERS Darius! Then he BLASTS Dante down! The fans boo but the Bucks soak it up as Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Nick nods and Matt smooths out his hair. Matt drags Darius up, bumps him off buckles, tag to Nick. CATAPULT GAMANGIRI, and then the DOUBLE STOMP BACKBREAKER! Darius writhes, Matt talks to commentary, perhaps trying to smooth things over from Nick’s threat, and Nick clamps onto Darius with a chinlock. Nick throws off his suit jacket to drag Darius up and turn him, for a NECKBREAKER! Cover, TWO! Nick drags Darius up to bump him off buckles, then he stomps a mudhole in! The ref counts, Matt tags in, and Matt CLUBS Darius. Darius throws body shots in return! Matt CLUBS Darius again, then BLASTS Dante back down!

Darius BLASTS Nick in return! Matt and Darius talk trash on each other, then Matt takes a swing! Darius ducks, gets around, atomic drop and a BULLDOG HOTSHOT! But Nick PENALTY KICKS Darius from the apron! The ref reprimands but Nick says that’s what Darius gets! Nick drags Darius up, puts him in, and Matt drags Darius around for haymakers. Matt whips Darius to the corner, runs up, but into BOOTS! Nick takes a swing, Darius dodges and Dynamite returns to single picture as Darius CLOBBERS Nick! The fans fire up as Darius ducks ‘n’ dodges Matt to LEAPING LARIAT! Both Bucks are down and the fans rally for Darius!

Darius crawls, reaches out, but Matt pulls hair to bring him away! Matt whips, Darius ELBOWS back! Darius uses the corner for the WALL RUN PELE! Matt is down again, Darius crawls over, hot tag to Dante! Dante rallies on Matt and then JUMP KNEES Nick! Dante whips, Matt reverses but Dante slips out, goes up and around, then GAMANGIRIS!

Nick then YANKS Dante into barriers! Darius runs in at Matt, but Nick holds onto Matt to stop the Monkey Flip! Matt then high stacks Darius, with feet on the ropes!! The ref sees that, Nick argues with him about it, but Matt pop-up LOW BLOWS Darius! Fans boo as the ref misses the bigger cheat! Tag to Nick, and the Bucks sit Darius up for E V P TRIGGER!! Cover, The Bucks win!

Winner: The Young Bucks, by pinfall

The abuse of power continues, but so does the Bucks’ chase after the AEW World Tag Team Championships. Tony Schiavone then joins Matthew Braun John & Nicholas Lee Jackson in the ring. He notes the big win, and Matt says “Undefeated this year, Nicholas! Holy crap! I think that makes us the top, unbeatable tag team in AEW.” Fans boo but Matt says he has reason to believe that after beating a team the quality of Top Flight, a great team really, it is safe to assume that The Bucks are the NEW #1 contenders! Wow, there’s already a graphic for that… Fans boo but Schiavone says Sting isn’t here to respond, because of the despicable, heinous act by-

Oh, despicable?! Heinous!? You guys just can’t stop yourselves! Matt has to sit at his desk every week and hear Schiavone talk trash on the Bucks! Every single week! Hey, Matt has to think that this might be a breach of contract! Publicly disparaging the EVPs?! That is unacceptable, bush league, and we all know it! Nicholas says that is a ONE THOUSAND DOLLAR FINE! Does Schiavone have a problem with that? DOES HE HAVE A PROBLEM!? Nick shoulder bumps Schiavone off his feet!! Matt takes the mic back, apologizes for his “hothead” brother, this doesn’t need to get physical. Just don’t let it happen again, Schiavone.

The Bucks get Schiavone’s hands to help him up, into an E V P- NO! Darby is here!! He rushes down with Sting’s black baseball bat! He runs the Bucks out of the ring, grabs the mic and shouts at them, go ahead and remind everyone of the original mission statement of AEW. It was “Change the World.” When Darby was homeless, he begged the Bucks for a job, but they saw nothing in him. He sat by while The Bucks hired their sh*t friends! All their stupid California crew! But thank God that there was an EVP with a sense of brains back then. And we ain’t talking Kenny Omega! Fans chant for “CODY! CODY!”

Darby says The Bucks did their little interview why they stuck with AEW. Why was that? It was because the schedule was light and the money was good, NOT because they wanted to change the world! Seems the original mission is dead! So much for this being AEW! This is All Friendship Wrestling. Think of that first episode: No Darby! But Brandon Cutler was there! What even!? Darby isn’t sure what kind of tussles the Bucks got into while they were homeschooled, but we’re talking Sting’s final match! The Bucks want to be Sting’s final opponents? Then they don’t know what they got themselves into.

We’re talking about a man who’s got nothing left to lose. Young Bucks VS Darby & Sting for the AEW World Tag Team Championships? “IT’S SHOWTIME~!” Darby says if the Bucks want it, they’ve got it! Will the Bucks take those titles off the Relentless Icons? Or will they get what they deserve instead?

 

Backstage interview with The Bang Bang Scissor Gang.

Renee Paquette is with Jay White, The Acclaimed & The Gunns, and says it seems things are going smoothly for these six. The merch looks great, too. So what is next for the super group? Well, Austin wants to welcome us to the BBSG Lounge! Bowens gives Renee a rose for Valentine’s Day, very sweet. Bowens then signals for Austin & Colten to keep cool, it’s just plutonic. Jay says back to the question, what is the goal for them? Well as she said, they’re running smoothly, have momentum, new merch, gold on all the waists, shoulders and in their possession. But they still need to test their cohesiveness in the ring.

Billy has an idea! How about this Friday- Austin cuts Daddy Ass off by suggesting a 12 Man Tag for Rampage! No one responds. Or… and this is totally Billy’s idea, a 12 Man Tag for Rampage! Everyone loves that idea! Billy says no big deal, he’s been doing this for awhile. Bowens says great idea, and BBSG rules the world! Because EVERYONE loves The Acclaimed, BANG BANG! And if you’re not down with that, they’ve got two words for ya: GUNS UP! A massive open challenge is now set, what set of six will step to Platinum Max, Five Tool Bowens, Daddy Ass, his sons, and the Switchblade for Rampage?

Willow Nightingale w/ Kris Statlander & Stokely Hathaway VS Skye Blue w/ Julia Hart!

The Babe with the Power used to be friends with Chicago Skye before Julia Hart stained her with the black mist. This is the first time they’ve ever been opponents, can Willow bring herself to crush Skye? Or will the House Always Win?

In an odd move, Kris sees Willow and Stokely off then returns to the back. Perhaps she wants to see if her friend and her manager can coexist without her as the buffer. Stokely joins commentary, the bell rings and the fans rally for Willow. Skye runs up to SHOTGUN Willow! Skye fires off in the corner, the ref counts, and Skye lets off. Skye storms up to whip but Willow handsprings through! Willow then scoops and SLAMS Skye, covers, ONE! Willow huffs and scoops but Skye slips free to dragon sleeper! But Willow picks Skye up to SLAM her again! Skye stands, dodges, and SLAPS Willow! Fans boo but Willow says okay then!

Willow bumps Skye off buckles, bumps her off more buckles, then bumps her off a third! Skye bails out, fans boo, but Stokely likes what he sees. Willow storms out to chase Skye around the ring, then back in. Skye keeps moving, but Willow gets around to shove, run and POUNCE! PERIOD! Skye tumbles right out to the floor and the fans fire up as Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Willow fumes while Skye flounders to a corner. Willow goes out to SMACK Skye off railing, then stomps her down. Willow SMACKS Skye off the apron, then whips her, only for Skye to reverse and POST Willow! Willow falls and clutches her head, but Skye storms up to stomp her down! Skye CLUBS Willow, stalks her, then pushes her into the ring. Skye stalks Willow, stomps her again, then CLUBS away on Willow’s back! Skye pushes Willow to a cover, TWO! Skye is frustrated, but she bumps Willow off buckles. Skye digs her boot in, waves hi and blows kisses, but Willow pushes Skye away. Skye comes back to fire forearms!

Skye snapmares Willow and KICKS her in the back! Skye paces around Willow, stands her up, but Willow blocks the suplex to suplex back! Willow storms up but Skye YANKS her into ropes! Skye runs in to BOOT WASH her! Skye then pushes Willow down, covers, TWO! Skye is frustrated and she SLAPS Willow. willow ROCKS Skye! Skye BOOTS Willow! Willow goes to ropes, Skye storms up to CLUB her on the back, then puts her in a corner to stomp away! The ref counts, Skye lets off and paces around. Skye goes back for Willow, brings her around and ROCKS her with a right hand! Willow snarls and she ROCKS Skye back!

Dynamite returns to single picture as the forearms go back and forth! The fans are on Willow’s side but Skye gets the edge! Willow blocks a shot, runs, but into a SUPERKICK! Skye roars, runs, but Willow blocks the boot to LARIAT! And LARIAT! Stokely again likes what he sees as Willow rallies with more shots! Skye goes to a corner, Willow runs up to back body block! Then LARIAT, then snapmare! Skye staggers up, into a BOOT! Willow drags Skye up, whips her again and hits the SPINEBUSTER! High stack, TWO! Skye survives but Willow stays on her with the gut wrench! Skye slips free, ducks a lariat and wrenches to a JAWBREAKER!

Skye SUPERKICKS, then BASEMENT DDTS! Cover, TWO!! Willow survives, but Skye gets her up into a full nelson! Willow fights free of that with elbows, then fireman’s carries! But Skye slips into a DRAGON SLEEPER BACKPACK! Willow endures, fans rally up, and Willow RAMS Skye into buckles! Stokely says Julia Hart’s TBS Championship is gonna be in trouble! Willow is free, runs in, but Skye slips to the outside. Willow still ROCKS Skye first, but then Skye avoids the shoulder! Willow avoids the boot and BLASTS Skye to the floor! The fans fire up with Willow and Stokely says even he’s all fired up!

Willow fetches Skye, puts her in the ring, and then stalks Skye to the corner. Willow hoists Skye up top, the fans rally behind her as she climbs, but Skye throws body shots! Skye slips under Willow, tucks her in, CHEEKY NANDOS! And then a FALLING POWERBOMB! High stack, TWO!! Willow survives and Skye shrieks in frustration! Stokely says he’s had enough of this, and he storms off of commentary. Skye runs, hops on, CODE BLUE! But Stokely distracts the ref!! Skye would’ve won by now! Skye is furious and shouts at the ref, the ref finally counts, TWO!! Willow has the cover, TWO!

Skye runs up, Willow dodges, and Willow mule kicks! Gut wrench, BABE WITH THE POWERBOMB!! Cover, Willow wins!

Winner: Willow Nightingale, by pinfall

#BigStoke gave a big assist to his other client, and he fist bumps with Willow. Will Stokely be right about the Princess of the Black Throne losing her crown one way or another?

Texas Death Match: Orange Cassidy VS Matt Taven!

With things escalating between Best Friends and the Undisputed Kingdom, yet Roderick Strong still wanting to wait until Revolution, the only way Freshly Squeezed can get revenge is by proxy! Will Cassidy crush one of the pawns on the way to the title match? Or will the AEW International Champion get beat to a pulp in the main event?

The bell rings and Cassidy runs right up! He and Taven brawl and the fans fire up! Taven shoves, Cassidy dodges and SHOTGUNS! Cassidy kips up and he stands off with Taven. Taven waves to the ramp, but that’s a fake out so Taven can CLOBBER Cassidy from behind! Taven CHOPS Cassidy to a corner, ROCKS him with a right, then whips corner to corner. Cassidy reverses, Taven goes up and over then keeps moving. Cassidy hurdles, keeps moving, but Taven DROPKICKS him down! Fans boo Taven but he says “III’M Matt Taven!” Taven CHOPS Cassidy, CHOPS him again, and then whips corner to corner.

Cassidy reverses, Taven goes under, ENZIGIRIS back, then hoists Cassidy up, a hard BLUE THUNDER BOMB! Cassidy flops out of the ring, the standing count starts, but Taven storms after him. Cassidy is up at 4 of 10, Taven RAMS him into railing! Taven SMACKS Cassidy off steel steps, then whips him into more railing! Cassidy slumps down but Taven drags him back up. The fans cheer Cassidy on but Taven ROCKS Cassidy again. Fans want tables but Cassidy sends Taven into railing! Cassidy whips Taven hard into more railing, then storms up on him. The fans fire up as Cassidy whips again, but Taven reverses!

Cassidy LEAPS over the railing clean! The fans fire up, and then Cassidy puts his hands in his pockets! Taven is furious, he hurries out after Cassidy, but into a BOOT! Cassidy CLUBS Taven, CLUBS him again, then brings him into the crowd with haymakers! The fans fire up while Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Cassidy brings Taven up the bleachers with a headlock, throws some hands, then keeps bringing Taven along. Taven SMACKS Cassidy with someone’s water bottle! The brawling continues up to the second level, and Taven CHOPS! Taven stalks Cassidy, throws more hands, then ROCKS him. Taven shoves Cassidy down the bleachers to return to the ground level. Taven SMACKS Cassidy off barriers, then brings him along for more CHOPS! They end up near the stage now, and Taven SMACKS Cassidy off light trusses! The standing count starts, Cassidy rises up, but Taven has found a table! Taven sets that up right over an AEW logo.

Taven storms up on Cassidy, ROCKS him with a right, but Cassidy ROCKS Taven in return! Cassidy fires more hands but Taven knees low! Taven SMACKS Cassidy off the table, then follows him as he staggers around. Taven brings Cassidy back around, SMACKS him off the table again, then pushes him onto it. Taven throws down more hands, then talks trash to the fans. Especially the kid cosplaying Cassidy. Taven throws down more hands, then he goes up onto the stage! Taven soaks up the heat, talks more trash, probably calls them all Melvins, and Dynamite returns to single picture. Taven takes aim, to MACHO ELBOW through the table!

Fans lose their minds as both men fall with the table, the table is really more dented than broken. The standing count starts all the same, and Taven drags the table over to prop it up against the ramp! Cassidy stands at 8 of 10, so Taven reels him in! Snap suplex through the table! Cassidy writhes, his forehead is a bit bloody, and the count begins again. Taven paces but Cassidy stands at 6 of 10! Taven ROCKS Cassidy, pushes him onto the ramp, then lines up the shot. JUST THE TIP of the knee! Taven tells the fans off, then wants the count. The count begins, but Cassidy rises pretty fast! So Taven is on him already, to push him into the ring.

Taven storms up on Cassidy, scoops him, and hits a BACKBREAKER! And then a flip around into a DDT!! Cassidy is down, the count begins, and some fans are stunned he’s still moving! Taven finds another table! Taven brings that up, and props it against the commentary desk!? Cassidy DIVES, but Taven narrowly avoids the table he set up! The count is now on Taven while Cassidy has a crimson mask forming. Cassidy puts Taven in, but Taven hits the springboard FLYING CHUCK! Cassidy wobbles, flops off the apron, and Taven builds speed! Taven WRECKS Cassidy, but Cassidy doesn’t fall!

Cassidy wobbles, he leans on the table and marks it with his blood. Taven builds speed again, and he FLIES, through the table!!! Cassidy avoids disaster and the fans lose their minds! Commentary can barely be heard, their own desk taking some damage in that crash! Cassidy staggers his way over while the count is climbing. Taven rises up, he’s bloodied now, and he stands at 9.5!! “This is Awesome!” as Cassidy has… A box of chocolates? The card reads “To: OC. From: Chuckie T. XOXO.” The Kentucky Gentleman left a Valentine’s Day gift for his buddy and the fans fire up! Cassidy takes the gift into the ring, opens it up, and surprise! It’s not candy, but THUMBTACKS!!

The fans are thunderous as Cassidy drags Taven up a corner! Taven throws body shots to resist, then he adjusts. Taven SHOVES Cassidy onto the tacks!! Cassidy writhes, and Taven adjusts, FROG SPLASH onto tacks!! Cassidy avoids disaster again and then runs, tilt-o-whirl DDT onto the tacks!! The fans lose their minds as both men continue to lose blood! Cassidy staggers up, Taven is still down, the count begins. Cassidy goes out, to get a steel chain!? And then an even bigger heart shaped box!? But then Mike Bennett rushes out here to CLOBBER Cassidy! It was only a matter of time before The Kingdom stopped playing fair!

Bennett gets that box, and he SMASHES it right on Cassidy’s head! Bennett puts Cassidy in while the fans boo, and Bennett puts chair after chair into the ring! Taven flounders around, the ref reprimands Bennett but there’s nothing to stop this! The chairs are a pile, but wait! Here comes Trent Beretta! And much like Arnold in Terminator 2, he has a box of roses, that he then pulls a weapon out of! It’s a steel pipe! Bennett has a chair, he takes a swing, but Trent dodges to CLOBBER Bennett with the pipe! But Taven CHUCKS a chair into Trent! Taven hoists Trent to the top rope, drapes him out, FULL METAL CLIMAX!!

But ORANGE PUNCH for Taven!! And then BEACH BREAK onto tacks and chairs!!! Taven writhes but Cassidy isn’t done with him! Taven RIPS the pockets away!? Fans boo, that’s like taking a luchador’s mask! Cassidy wraps that chain around his fist, and because “IIIIIIII’M Matt Taven!” FULL METAL ORANGE PUNCH!!! Taven is down, the count begins, but here comes Roddy! Roddy aims at Cassidy, STRONG KNEE into Trent!! Trent takes the bullet for Cassidy, and Taven is still floundering around at 8 of 10! Taven is DOWN, Cassidy wins!!

Winner: Orange Cassidy, by technical knockout

The International Champion’s Best Friends came through for him and they thwarted The Undisputed Kingdom! But with Revolution fast approaching, is Cassidy going to stand a chance against the Savior of the Backbreaker?


My Thoughts:

An awesome Dynamite here, lots of big stuff going down. Toni Storm’s Wet Ink was very well done, clearly she’s been given a bigger budget compared to her early films because of how successful she’s been. And what a powerful move to (I assume legitimately) change her tattoo to stick it to Deonna. Speaking of powerful moves, Callis making Takeshita VS Ospreay happen for the hell of it, that’s going to be an awesome match. And it makes me think Ospreay and Fletcher are gonna break away from the Don Callis Family to get some United Empire stuff going in AEW. Then they can make it DCF VS Empire if they’re moving away from Jericho (and they probably should be).

Just as I was wondering why Bang Bang Scissor Gang wasn’t doing much, they show up to have a group promo and it was a lot of fun. A 12 Man Tag is going to be nuts, and it’ll certainly be like three different jobber tag teams like Outrunners, The Workhorsemen and Butcher & Blade because of course BBSG is winning. I would really hope one of the tag teams (Ass Boys or Acclaimed) call out The Kingdom’s Taven & Bennett for an ROH World Tag Team Championship match, and for the love of pro-wrestling, get these guys on ROH since Bullet Club Gold are the ROH World Six Man Tag Team Champions!

Moxley VS Dax was an awesome opener, great win for Moxley, and clearly BCC is turning Heel since FTR is sticking to Face. The tag match next week will be awesome, too, surely setting up the winners as tag title contenders for after Revolution. And of course we were officially given Darby & Sting VS Bucks for Revolution. Great tag match from Bucks VS Top Flight, and pretty good “abuse” of EVP authority for “Matthew & Nicholas” to use a simple 2-0 win streak as justification for the top spot. Darby had a great promo slamming the Bucks as sellouts, and now that the match is official, it is going to be awesome stuff.

Great match from Edge VS Garcia, but I should’ve figured it’d get “ruined” by The Patriarchy. It was ruled No Contest so that there wouldn’t be someone crowned the winner by disqualification, but after the Con-Chair-To to Edge, it feels like they might give Garcia the Revolution match. I say that because there shouldn’t be a Triple Threat, that’d make this too much like the world title story. Meanwhile, I don’t see Garcia winning the TNT Championship unless Edge thwarts Luchasaurus & Nick Wayne getting involved, maybe even Matt Menard since he stood up to Christian only to get knocked down by Luchasaurus. Honestly, I’d love if Garcia did win the title, then Christian VS Edge can be just about the grudge.

And speaking of the world title story, great promo from Joe, Hangman and Swerve. Seems we’ve gotten the double turn of Hangman and Swerve, despite Swerve doing what he did. But that is just how pro-wrestling works, where things are forgiven by the fans when the Heel turns Face. All that aside, the Six Man Tag set up for next week is going to be interesting because of how Hangman is becoming a Heel but RVD and Hook are still Faces, and then it’s hard to really say where Joe, Swerve and Cage are on the Heel-Face spectrum. Feels like RVD is taking the loss though, with Hook and Cage needing to be strong going into their FTW Championship match and of course Joe, Hangman & Swerve needing to stay even for their own title match.

Really good match from Willow VS Skye, and I find it interesting Stokely has come around to Willow so quickly. He helps her get the win, hard to say if she knew that or not, but it definitely feels like Willow and Kris will have to fight if either wants a shot at Julia and the TBS title. And then awesome main event in that Texas Death Last Man Standing Match. Matt Taven may be like if The Miz never went Hollywood with his gimmick, but he is still really good in the ring, proved himself in ROH, so him and Cassidy was the right move for the match. Still wish they’d be careful with blood, feels like Cassidy’s blading was overdone. And of course it got overbooked but great win for Cassidy here to keep himself going strong towards Revolution.

My Score: 9/10
