PLAY BY PLAY

The Judgment Day is here!

Finn Balor, Damian Priest & Dominik Mysterio were victorious last night on Raw against Seth Rollins, Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn, and now they’ve come back to the white ‘n’ gold! They get the mics and fans chant for “MAMI! MAMI!” And then they chant “Welcome Home! Welcome Home!” Finn starts by telling NXT, “Daddy’s home!” Because this is the House that Finn Built! And Finn is back to lay down some house rules with the Judgment Day! He’s got Senor Money in the Bank, Damian Priest, and the Women’s World Champion, Rhea Ripley! Fans again chant for “MAMI! MAMI!” Finn says, “And everyone’s favorite, Dirty Dominik Mysterio!”

Fans boo Dom and he gets upset. Damian says with all that said, “NXT Universe, ALL RISE for the Judgment Day!” Now to get to business, “Melo and Trick. You guys called us out here because you thought you were getting a divided Judgment Day. You’re getting the Judgment Day that runs the WWE! You’re getting the Judgment Day that runs NXT! This right here is the murderer’s row of the WWE!” Dom speaks up, and fans boo. Rhea tells them to shut up but Dom says, “And Mami-” Wait! Here comes Trick Melo Gang! Trick says whoa whoa whoa, cut the music. Rhea says NO! They did not just interrupt Dom!

Oh, sorry, but Melo was wondering why they call him “Dirty Dom.” Is it cuz all the times he dropped the so- Whoa, now! Keep it PG. Melo & Trick go to the ring, and Melo says he appreciates the Judgment Day coming. But he wants to focus on Finn. He must say, when they mention the NXT Mount Rushmore, Finn is up there and rightfully so. But looking at NXT now, it has Trick Melo influence all over. Fans chant for “MEL~O! MEL~O!” Melo says most importantly, everyone has an opinion on Finn getting the better of Melo. But understand now, Finn is in Melo’s arena. Finn is trying to ball on Melo’s court!

Rhea laughs. That is arrogance, mate. This was never about the two of them. Oh, it’s not? Then check the stats. Cuz in this building, Trick Melo Gang runs things. Priest says that’s fair. The Melo Era is real. But what Melo doesn’t have is the Judgment Day staring back at him every Tuesday night. And let’s be fair: The Archer of Infamy never missed a bull’s eye. Trick says Priest’s mouth is writing a check his ass can’t cash! WHAT?! Trick says they don’t have to talk the talk, they can be ’bout it ’bout it! Melo says they’ll keep it simple! Trick Melo Gang VS Judgment Day, tonight! But Finn says hold on now.

If Melo comes at the Prince, he best not miss. Melo smirks and takes off his sunglasses. Then let’s do this thing then. Trick Melo Gang is ready to ball, will they dunk on Finn & Senor MITB?

 

Video interview with Tony D’Angelo.

The Don was on video call with McKenzie Mitchell and said he appreciates the call. But they have to make this quick, it’s chow time and Giorgio is almost done with his steak. Then speaking of stakes, Stacks raises the stakes tonight against Joe Coffey. If Stacks wins, the charges are dropped on Tony and the D’Angelo Familia gets a shot at the NXT Tag Team Championships. But if he loses, Tony goes to trial. What’s Tony’s mindset? What can he do? He’s at Stacks’ mercy. They’ve known each other since they were kids, and he’s never been worried before. But then does he not trust Stacks? Hey, don’t put words in his mouth!

Then how confident is he in Stacks getting the win? He just doesn’t know Stacks anymore. Ever since being in here, he’s been hearing some bad things. And to be honest, he just doesn’t know. McKenzie hopes Stacks comes through, and he thanks her for that. But will Channing Lorenzo be able to pull off the plan? Or will Tony end up facing the judge?

 

Gigi Dolin speaks.

“Everyone has a dark side. I put my demons out on front street, and I never let them keep me from being me. Kiana James spends all her energy holding everything in because she’s afraid of who she really is.” Kiana says they’re not that different? Then it hurts, doesn’t it? Kiana hates Gigi because Gigi is the way Kiana wishes she could be. After that “fresh coat of paint,” Gigi redecorated Kiana’s office to remind her of what she wants to forget. Kiana wants the gloves to come off? Good! Take them off! Tear down those hypocritical walls! They aren’t so different, but what separates them is that Gigi embraces it while Kiana lives a lie. Will Gigi make Kiana face the truth in the ring?

Kiana James sees this!

And she has a freak out. How’d Gigi get those pictures?! What’s everyone else looking at? That’s not even her anymore! Kiana storms off, but will she learn to let go of her hang-ups

 

Andre Chase & Duke Hudson VS Drew Gulak & Charlie Dempsey!

Seeing Thea Hail be bullied and the university badmouthed, Professor Andre could not stay home any longer! He and the Chase U MVP are looking to teach Gulak & Dempsey a lesson, but will they be the ones with a failing grade?

Thea is all pumped up as she celebrates with her professor and her role model! Will Duke & Chase become the MVPs of NXT? What do the new guys, Price & Nima, think of all this?

 

Bron Breakker speaks.

“Ilja Dragunov. You made a really big mistake. Cuz you weren’t even on my radar, man. And to think that I’m in your way from you getting to the NXT title? I’ve got news for you, man! I’m Badass Bron Breakker! I’m leading the way! You’ve been behind me ever since your first day in NXT. Yeah, yeah, you were champ once. I’m sure you’ll be champ again some day. But it’s not gonna come at my expense. Because tonight, there’s not gonna be enough referees or officials to hold me back from me breaking you on my way to the Bash.” Will Bron be able to break the unbreakable? Or will he be the one broken later tonight?

 

Von Wagner talks with Robert Stone backstage.

Von says after last week, he got a little carried away. Stone says yeah, he’d say so, after that powerbomb on Javier Bernal through the desk. But Von says Javi was talking all that crap, saying the stuff kids would to him growing up. Von’s parents tried to shield him from it, but his parents couldn’t be with him on the bus or at school. When Von looked in the mirror, knowing he had a plate keeping his skull together, it’s hard not to feel different. At school, he had no one to sit with. No one wanted to be his partner for projects. So he just said screw it! If they think he’s a monster, that is what he’ll become.

Stone says that was how Von wanted to be accepted? No, to make it through life. Von came to NXT to be the monster, but he has to admit, when he looked up and the fans were on his side, he didn’t know what to do. But for the first time in his life, he feels like he’s finally himself. And it’s Stone’s annoying, irritating little ass that he has to thank for it. They shake hands, and perhaps now Von can begin to heal. But who will he still slam through the ground on his way to the top?

 

Cora Jade VS Kelani Jordan w/ Dana Brooke!

The #GenerationOfJade doesn’t need anyone other than herself to get by, according to herself. But will the new girl on the block prove the Flex Appeal knows what she’s doing as a mentor?

NXT returns as Kelani makes her entrance, Dana by her side. The bell rings and she circles with Cora. They tie up, Cora waistlocks and SLAMS Kelani down. Fans rally for Kelani as she wrenches out and hammerlocks. Cora fights up, throws elbows, and laughs at Kelani before she headlocks. Cora hits the takeover, grinds Kelani down, but Kelani fights around. Kelani stands, powers out, and does the splits to get under! Kelani then somersaults to arm-drag! Then she runs to go through ropes and arm-drag again! And DROPKICK! Kelani jumps again but Cora blocks the flip into a ROPE GUILLOTINE!

Cora laughs at Kelani more but fans boo. Cora stomps Kelani, then runs to IMPLODER STOMP! Cover, TWO! Dana coaches Kelani but Cora taunts Kelani. Cora kicks Kelani around, puts her on ropes and CHOKES her! The ref counts, Cora lets off at 4, then runs to ELBOW Kelani in the ropes! Cover, TWO! Fans rally but Cora drags Kelani up. Cora SMACKS Kelani off the mat! Cora stalks Kelani but Dana coaches her up. Cora kicks Kelani around, brings her up and puts her through the ropes, to then hook her up and CHOP! Cora runs side to side to SHOTGUN Kelani down! Cover, TWO!

Cora runs in again, to BOOT Kelani! Cora puts Kelani on ropes again, but Kelani dodges the elbow to roll Cora up! TWO! Cora scrambles up but Kelani fires forearms! And again!

Winner: Cora Jade, by pinfall

Cora is leaving Kellani feeling jaded, but she then gets her kendo stick! Fans boo, Kelani dodges the strike, and another! Dana gets in, and she DROPKICKKS Cora down! And LARIATS! And again! Dana gets the stick and she swings on Cora! Cora runs away, will she have to deal with Coach Dana next time?

 

Ilja Dragunov speaks.

“‘Badass’ Bron Breakker, tonight I finish what you have started a month ago. I felt your power and rage, but tonight you will feel my wrath and my fury! The most intense man in NXT, huh? Look into these eyes. My intensity cannot be matched! It will lead me past you, all the way to the Great American Bash and the NXT Championship.” The Czar has spoken, will he prove Bron is not badass enough to break him? That match is NEXT!

 

NXT shares an interview from after last week’s show.

NXT Media caught up with Gable Steveson and Eddy Thorpe after they both had a good time in the Underground. Eddy says that was special, and while Damon is special, he ain’t Eddy Thorpe. But Eddy does thank Gable for the training. NXT Media asks what is next for Gable then. Gable admits, he sent some guys flying. And the future, from the national title to the Olympics, so much to think about. But he loves being in NXT! Gable isn’t sure, just a lot to think about.

NXT Prospects watch things back.

That NXT Underground stuff was sick! But Dijak storms in and says Eddy wins one Underground match, and suddenly they all think he’s so tough? Pretty much… Oh please. Dijak storms off, will Hard Justice put the Alpha Wolf to the test?

 

NXT Championship #1 Contender’s Match: Bron Breakker VS Ilja Dragunov!

NXT returns and Dragunov makes his entrance. The bell rings and Dragunov rushes in! Bron blocks a boot, throws Dragunov back, then runs up to fire haymakers!

Both men are down and fans fire up! The ref checks and Bron is okay to continue. Bron stirs and pushes himself up, with Dragunov right behind him. They both crawl towards each other, grab at the other’s hair, and Dragunov throws a forearm!

Dragunov CHOPS, Bron throws haymakers! Bron DECKS Dragunov but he pops right up to BOOT Bron! Dragunov runs to LARIAT, but Bron stays up! Dragunov runs again, for another LARIAT!

Backstage interview with Wes Lee.

McKenzie is with the NXT North American Champion and says we know he will face Mustafa Ali at Great American Bash. Wes says it’s one and he high-fives McKenzie. And while he treats every match like it’s his biggest match, there is something different about this one. Ali is a different cat. Wes can’t get a read on Ali, which makes it hard to strategize for him, and that makes Ali dangerous. But wait, Rhea & Dom walk in. Dom says Wes is an open challenge type guy, right? Uh, well, Wes has done those before, but- Then Dom accepts. What? Dom accepts the open challenge for the North American title.

Wes tells Dom that he didn’t issue an open challenge, has Dom not been paying attention? Oh, Dom gets it. Now that Dom’s around, Wes doesn’t wanna do one. Rhea mocks the “fighting champion.” Wes says no, no, no. They didn’t let him finish. He only stopped doing that stuff cuz things got real crazy around here. But if Dom wants to get crazy, say less, we can do this now. Dom says hold on. Maybe next week. Dom wants to give Wes time to prepare. Dom & Rhea leave, and Wes says okay. Will Dirty Dom look to end Wes’s win streak before Ali ever gets his shot? Or will he just be a tune-up instead?

 

Baron Corbin speaks.

“I’m without a compass. With the embers still smoldering, what is my future? This house, this life. It was all built off the echoes of the last eight years. From the beginning, I’ve always said you can’t fight fate, but now, that’s exactly what I’m doing.” Corbin takes a late night drive, and says that as he looks back, he can see “something.” He sees that he had nothing in common with those he once portrayed himself to be. “But now, who the hell am I?” Corbin arrives at a strange place in the woods. Tiki torches burn, and there is a man in a hood. What has the “No BS” Corbin stumbled upon? Will it help him understand who he is?

 

Tiffany Stratton VS Ivy Nile!

The Center of the Universe hoped the entire Diamond Mine would be banished from NXT when The Dyad won that Losers Leave NXT match, but no, the Creeds are the only ones packing their bags. Will the Diamond Pitbull take a bite out of the NXT Women’s Champion? Or will Daddy’s Little Rich Girl still get what she wants?

NXT returns as Ivy makes her entrance. The bell rings and fans rally up for Ivy as she circles with Tiff. They tie up, Ivy waistlocks but Tiff switches. Tiff headlocks, Ivy powers out but Tiff runs her over. Fans boo as Tiff flexes, and they remind her “YOU TAPPED OUT!” Ivy resets with Tiff and they tie up again.

Tiff kicks her and snapmares her down, then runs to DOUBLE- NO, Ivy avoids the stomps to get a CALF KILLER!! Tiff scrambles to get the headlock! Ivy stands up, powers out, but Tiff wrenches to whip. Ivy RANAS Tiff, Tiff handsprings through and taunts Ivy. Ivy runs in, ducks ‘n’ dodges to SUPERWOMAN PUNCH! Then she runs in, but Tiff puts her on the apron. Tiff avoids the lariat and sweeps the legs! Fans boot as Tiff runs to HIP ATTACK Ivy down! Tiff then goes out after Ivy at commentary.

Tiff drags Ivy up and SMACKS her off the apron. Tiff puts Ivy in, storms up, and DOUBLE STOMPS! Cover, TWO!! Ivy survives and Tiff scowls. Fans rally behind Ivy as Tiff runs side to side to HIP ATTACK again! Cover, TWO! Ivy is still in this and Tiff grows frustrated. Tiff wraps on a chinlock and grinds Ivy down. Fans rally, ivy fights up and throws body shots, but Tiff knees low. Tiff whips, handsprings in, but Ivy dodges! Ivy kicks, Tiff blocks, but not the DRAGON WHIP! Ivy keeps moving and she runs Tiff over! And again! Tiff goes to a corner, Ivy runs Around the World to SOBAT!

Fans fire up but Tiff RAMS into Ivy! Tiff hurries up, fireman’s carry, but Ivy gets the DIAMOND DRAGON!!! Tiff fights around to RAM Ivy into buckles! Tiff reels Ivy in, fireman’s carry, ROLLING SENTON! PRETTIEST MOONSAULT EVER!! Cover, Tiff wins!

Winner: Tiffany Stratton, by pinfall

Ivy gave Tiff more than she bargained for, but she found a way to survive. Will Ivy wish she could join the Creeds wherever they go next? As for Tiff, she gets a mic to say, “You are all so annoying! I’m the NXT Women’s Champion. I don’t need to explain myself to you peasants. I didn’t tap out. I beat Thea fair and square. I DIDN’T TAP OUT! LEAVE ME ALONE!” Tiff tells them all to shut up, but will someone come along to shut her up?

 

Thea talks with Chase backstage.

She explains that you gotta put your weight into the Kimura! You gotta torque it one way, then wrench it the other, just like she did! Dempsey taught her that? Yes, he and Gulak are the worst people, but they taught her great stuff! She could tap just about anyone out now! She did it to Tiff! Yes, we all saw that. Duke returns to say the fans booed Tiff outta the building. The Uncrowned Women’s Champion is really getting to her. If it weren’t for those sons of- Whoa, Thea! Calm down, you’re not done with Tiffany. She’s not? No, because Thea made her tap out! And they believe Thea could do it again and become NXT Women’s Champion!

Chase starts up a “REMATCH!” chant! Thea and Duke join in, will NXT management hear them and make it so?

 

Noam Dar tweets a message.

“I thought I could gather the strength to show my face in front of the NXT Universe on Supernova Sessions this Tuesday, but I simply cannot without MY NXT Heritage Cup. I am lost without it. I’m not me right now. Therefore, SNS this Tuesday is CANCELLED.” His Meta Four mates tweet their support and well wishes, but will Mr. Supernova 11 get back to 100 any time soon?

 

Backstage interview with Blair Davenport.

McKenzie says she brutalized Roxanne Perez, but Blair cuts her off. Is McKenzie gonna ask Blair how she could possibly destroy such a “sweet and innocent little girl like Roxanne?” How she jacked that jaw, picked up that lifeless body and rammed her knee into that skull again and again? Roxie was a decorated champion, until Blair arrived. Now, this division is for grown ass women! Not fragile little girls with ribbons in their hair. Yes, Roxie will want another shot with her never-say-die spirit, but girls like Roxanne don’t beat people like Blair. And when Roxie returns, Blair will leave her like she did Nikkita, Wendy and Sol: on the shelf.

 

High Stakes Match: “Stacks” Channing Lorenzo VS Joe Coffey w/ Gallus!

The Underboss put the plan in motion himself, and we see if he can see it through! Will he win The Don’s freedom and a title match for Great American Bash? Or will The Iron King make sure Tony is put away for a long, long time?

NXT returns and Gallus makes their entrance. The bell rings and the two circle. They feel things out, tie up, and Joe powers Stacks to ropes. The ref counts, Joe lets off, and the two go again. They tie up, Stacks headlocks but Joe powers Stacks to a knee. Joe wrenches Stacks’ arm, has a standing armlock, but Stacks fights up. Stacks wrenches to a wristlock, but Joe rolls, wrenches and WRINGS Stacks, but Stacks rolls through. The two go again, and they tie up. Stacks wrenches and headlocks but Joe powers out right away. Fans chant “FREE TONY! FREE TONY!” as the two reset again. They tie up, and Joe headlocks.

Joe thrashes Stacks around, but Stacks powers up and out, then drops, only for Joe to hit a headlock takeover! Fans cheer the technical exchange, but Stacks moves around. Stacks fights up, powers up, but Joe holds on tight! Stacks tries again, gets free, and things speed up. Stacks hurdles but Joe runs him over! Joe tells Stacks that if he wants to be The Don, it’s time. Stacks stands up, and Joe swings, ALL THE BEST FOR THE BELLS! Cover, TWO!?! Stacks survives!? The Gallus Boys are confused! He thought Stacks was gonna throw this so everyone would benefit! They had a deal, didn’t they!? They shook hands!!

Stacks grins, because he ain’t no snitch, and he ain’t no sellout! But then can Stacks pull this off now that it’s a real fight? We’ll see as NXT goes to break!

NXT returns, Joe has Stacks in a top wristlock half nelson combo, but someone is calling the show? TONY is calling! Tony says if Gallus thought they got the better of the D’Angelo Family, then they’re dumber than they look! They took the bait, now Stacks can reel ’em in! Stacks fights up, throws hands and fans fire up! Stacks and Joe brawl, and Stacks gets the edge! Tony cheers Stacks on before the call ends, and Stacks uses that hockey scrum style like The Don! Mark distracts and Joe CLOBBERS Stacks from behind! Fans boo and Joe drags Stacks up. Joe throws haymakers but Stacks throws hands back!

Joe DECKS Stacks, and then hammerlocks to grind Stacks down. Wait, Price & Nima walk out? The street smart boys tell Mark & Wolfgang that their days as champs are numbered.

Stacks says see ya soon, Don! They’re going to get their title shot, but will Gallus make them pay for pulling one over on them?

 

The Schism find Ivy backstage.

Oh, look who it is. The lone survivor of Diamond Mine. Once a great faction, now all but extinct. Ivy says sorry, she didn’t recognize them without their loaded masks. If not for Gacy, Julius & Brutus would’ve beaten The Dyad. Gacy says that wasn’t him, he was ejected from ringside. How would he have even made his way back in? Rip Fowler tells Ivy to open her eyes and take a look around. Jagger Reed says the Schism’s tree is blossoming, stronger than ever. Ava Raine says there’s always room for one more. The Schism leaves Ivy to think on that, but the last two masked followers… Something seems familiar…

 

Backstage interview with Yulisa Leon & Valentina Feroz.

McKenzie wants their thoughts on Dar being “too distracted” to host his talk show tonight. Feroz says that’s pathetic. Leon agrees, all this moping is just annoying. Feroz gets all fired up, Leon has her calm down, but then in walk Los Lotharios. Humbert Carrillo asks them what’s wrong, why the long faces? And Angel Garza suggests they all spend the rest of the evening together, and maybe find a way to put smiles back on those beautiful faces. Leon says nope! Next time, they should think before trying to hit on them. And then Dragon Lee & Nathan Frazer walk in. Everything okay here? Is there a problem?

Angel smiles and says no. Then jog on. Los Lotharios leave, will their energies be better spent on climbing the tag team rankings rather than working on their love lives?

 

Carmelo Hayes & Trick Williams VS Finn Balor & Damian Priest w/ The Judgment Day!

Trick Melo Gang made sure The Prince didn’t add onto what Seth Rollins had been through at Gold Rush, and that didn’t sit well with The Judgment Day. Will Finn and Senor Money in the Bank punish Melo & Trick for interfering in Judgment Day business? Or will Trick Melo Gang handle business on their home court?

NXT returns as The Judgment Day make their entrance. The teams sort out and Trick starts against Priest. They circle, fans rally up, and the two tie up.

The ref counts, Finn lets off and he tags Priest. Priest drags Trick up to suplex, and BROKEN ARROW! Cover, ONE!! Trick hangs tough but Priest clamps on a chinlock. Trick endures, fans rally, and Trick fights up. Priest CLUBS Trick to a corner, tag to Finn. Finn RAMS in, and RAMS again, and again! The ref counts, but Finn lets off at 4.

Finn stands Trick up to CHOP! Trick staggers to another corner, and Finn CHOPS him there! Finn throws hands but Trick counter punches! Finn RAMS into Trick again and again and again! Finn CHOPS again, and even Dom & Rhea are stinging from that. Finn whips corner to corner, but Trick comes back to CLOBBER Finn! Fans fire up and Trick tags in Melo! Trick Melo Gang double whip and DROPKICK! Priest storms in but into double kicks! Trick gives Melo the ASSIST CROSSBODY! Fans fire up with Trick Melo Gang as NXT goes picture in picture.

The Judgment Day regroups on the outside and calm down, but Trick Melo Gang WRECK them with double dropkicks! Melo puts Finn in, Dom & Rhea talk trash on him but he gives it back. Melo whips Finn to a corner, runs in, but is put on the apron. Melo GAMANGIRIS Finn, but Priest trips Melo up! Fans boo but Finn springboard stomps away on Melo!

Finn drags Melo around, stomps him down, then soaks up the cheers and jeers from the fans. Finn drags Melo around to throw down elbows.

Winners: The Judgment Day, by pinfall

They used all their tricks, but the Judgment Day still brought down HIM. And speaking of, Melo blames Dragunov! Dragunov defends he was making the save, but it doesn’t really matter now. Will Melo and Dragunov have it out at the Great American Bash?


My Thoughts:

Great stuff from NXT and we’re getting on the road to the Great American Bash. Great stuff from Judgment Day all night, as usual, with a great promo to start the night that naturally set up the main event. The main event was great, too, with Judgment Day keeping things together since there’s nothing on NXT for them to argue over. And Dom stepping to Wes was even a good promo, because of course Dom’s ego has been built up to where he thinks he can just take a midcard title. Dom VS Wes will be great stuff but I expect something to happen where Wes retains and still defends against Ali at GAB.

Good move having Dragunov make the save but fail to put heat into his title feud with Melo. Just an awesome match between Dragunov and Bron, and naturally Dragunov got the win. Bron’s already faced Melo and lost twice, Bron really does need to move on to either another title or just RawDown in the post-SummerSlam phase. Melo VS Dragunov is going to be an awesome match, too, and honestly feels like it could go either way. Dragunov has been NXT UK Champion, he knows what it is to be the face of a brand, so he doesn’t have to win against Melo. But at the same time, if he loses, it feels like Dragunov could just move to SmackDown and get after the US title.

Speaking of moving on from NXT, I swear, Julius & Brutus were those last two Schism masked minions. One was tall, the other was bulky, and they did glance at Ivy before moving on. It’d be a strange but somewhat clever and funny move if they refused to move on because of the controversy in their tag match. Ivy VS Tiff was good but I figured Tiff was going to find a way to win. But at the same time, it seems Thea will get another shot, and maybe at GAB. Chase U winning over Gulak & Dempsey was a surprise, maybe they claim shenanigans and get a rematch with Chase & Duke. Maybe even another Mixed Six? That seems to be NXT’s go-to move at this point in time.

Good promo from Eddy Thorpe and Gable Steveson to add to their NXT Underground segment. If Steveson comes back or not, I don’t really care either way, but WWE has put this much investment into him, it’d be a shame for them if there wasn’t more going on. But I like Dijak looking down on Eddy’s win, and that could be a really good next feud. And good promos from Gigi and Kiana to add to their rematch. It doesn’t sound like it’ll be No Disqualification even though it should, but I’m sure they’ll still give us great stuff in a standard match. Maybe, like the Gigi VS Jacy feud, we’ll get something really big for their blowoff.

Good match from Cora VS Kelani, and Kelani had some unique moves out there already. But of course Cora finds a way to win, and of course Dana saves Kelani from Cora adding on. Cora VS Dana could also be something with raised stakes like No Disqualification, or because Cora always brings one around, some kinda kendo stick match. And good promo from Blair to keep the feud with Roxie going. Their rematch is also going to be really good, can’t wait to see that. Good promo from Nathan Frazer and friends with Los Lotharios. I guess Angel & Humberto are bringing the thirsty back into this era of NXT, and there’s definitely a match there of Los Lotharios VS Frazer & Dragon.

Dar had a pretty funny tweet “promo,” though I kinda wish they would’ve given us a very sad Supernova Sessions. And I’m thinkin Oro, Lash & Jakara are going to ask HBK give Dar a rematch for the Heritage Cup at GAB so Dar can snap out of his funk. And I’m really appreciating everything they’re doing in this Von Wagner story. It is genuine and heartfelt, and a lot of people can speak to how bullying feels, and maybe even using it as motivation to get big and strong and mean like Von did. Now, Von does need to get back to winning matches, but he can basically be like a Braun Strowman type Face where he’s destroying stuff, like his opponents, and still getting cheered. Then he can be waiting in the wings for a showdown with a Heel champion on whatever level they want him to be.

But now for some confusion. Baron Corbin said he wasn’t gonna be a gimmicky “BS” character, but then what is this with the tiki torches and the mysterious hooded man in the woods? Is Corbin going to fight himself in some kind of cinematic? Actually, that’d be kinda cool. Very Bray Wyatt Firefly Funhouse making Cena relive his past and admit to his flaws. No idea what it’d do for Corbin, though. And then in the Tony D’Angelo story, I knew Stacks was going to get him his freedom, but tonight’s story beat was a bit of a stumble. The reveal that Stacks & Tony were tricking Gallus all along didn’t really land until Tony spelled it out for all of us on that “phone call.”

And even then, that seems like a really strange move. Tony risked being put on trial all for a title match? Seems like a big gamble, but I guess it all worked out for them because pro-wrestling is still a form of television drama. But I’m also curious as to how Nima & Price were simply watching parts of the tag division tonight, and then gave a general warning to Gallus. I suppose Tony & Stacks aren’t necessarily guaranteed the tag titles at GAB, but it feels like that’s how this story should conclude, and then Nima & Price just have a really good feud with Gallus to earn their own shot? There’s still time before GAB, I kinda hope there’s a way to make this another classic NXT Tag Team Championship Ladder match, like in the black ‘n’ gold era.

My Score: 8.6/10

Backstage interview with Hook and Katsuyori Shibata.

Lexi Nari is with the FTW Champion and The Wrestler, and notes we saw Hook make the save for Shibata during Collision against Shane Taylor Promotions. At the same time, Hook is about to face Shane Taylor himself with the FTW title on the line. Knowing what Shane’s capable of, what is Hook’s strategy going into that match? Shibata uses his voice-to-text translator say, “Pardon the interruption… Hook, I’ll have your back tonight.” Hook appreciates that, but even knowing what Shane’s capable of, Hook’s got his own way of handling this. Shibata says bet, and Hook gives him the fist bump.

Backstage interview with Rocky Romero.

Lexi is with Azucar as he is just moments away from his Title Eliminator match for the International Championship. However, Lexi wants to know if he knows what’s going on with Best Friends. Rocky says Chuck, Trent and Orange Cassidy are like brothers to him, and yet he has no idea what’s going on there. But right now, he can’t really worry about that, he has to focus on the match with Roderick Strong. When Rocky wins, he’ll be one step closer to fulfilling his destiny of becoming International Champion. Kyle O’Reilly pops in, wishes Rocky luck, and then heads back out. Will Azucar be able to get one over on the Savior of the Backbreaker? Or will he just end up broken?

 

AEW International Championship Eliminator: Roderick Strong w/ The Undisputed Kingdom VS Rocky Romero!

While Azucar is confident, it was just last night on Rampage that Roddy took offense to him and Kyle O’Reilly even thinking there was a chance this match doesn’t go The Undisputed Kingdom’s way. Will Roddy prove them all wrong by crossing Rocky off the list? Or is this were The Kingdom starts to crumble?

The bell rings and the two circle. The fans are behind Rocky as he and Roddy tie up. Rocky waistlocks, Roddy wrenches to wristlock, but Rocky rolls, wrenches and wristlocks back.

Rocky fights up, fights back, and he KICKS Roddy’s leg! And KICKS! Roddy CLUBS Rocky, eggs Rocky on, but Rocky roars! Rocky fires forearms, then UPPERCUTS!

The Kingdom helps Roddy, whether Roddy will say it that way or not. Kyle is here to celebrate with his friend, but he also checks on his other friend in Rocky. Kyle helps Rocky up to his feet, and wants the fans to give it up for Rocky. But then Wardlow LARIATS Rocky, and The Kingdom stomps away! Kyle has them stop, this isn’t cool! But then Roddy STRONG KNEES Kyle down?!? The fans boo as Roddy tells Kyle that he could do it on his own, but there’s only ONE man that can be International Champion! Kyle made the wrong decision! Roddy’s arrogance just ended his friendship with Kyle, will Kyle make Roddy pay for that?

 

Backstage interview with Serena Deeb.

Lexi Nair is with the Professor of Professional Wrestling and notes how last week, Serena walked on stage after Yuka Sakazaki’s return victory. Why? Serena says she was sitting in the back, watching that impressive match, and thought to herself that she was watching a great pro-wrestler. Someone that Serena would love to tear it up with. Tonight, the Professor is here on BOTB, but has no championship opportunity. She’s not sweating it, though. Since her return, Serena is undefeated. She checked the rankings, and The Professor is sitting pretty at Number 3! So week by week, she’s climbing her way up to inevitably become champion.

Serena tells Yuka, that was an invitation. To where? Into the Deeb Dojo! Serena will show Yuka that Serena is better, and that she is what she says she is: The Professor of Pro-Wrestling! Serena wants to test herself against the Wrestling Magical Girl, but who will be the one taking a step closer to a title opportunity?

 

BREAKING NEWS for Dynasty!

After Roddy’s sudden rejection of Kyle O’Reilly, they are now going to battle over the International Championship! It’s the fight neither man wanted, but will Kyle give Roddy payback for what he did with interest?

 

ROH Women’s World Championship: Athena w/ Billie Starkz VS Red Velvet!

The Fallen Goddess is 49-0 after defeating Hikaru Shida on Supercard of Honor last week, and when she says she’s the Forever Champion, she means that. But will “forever” come to a crashing halt in Kentucky? Or will The Chef be the one getting served an L?

The introductions are made by Lexi Nair, so just a little biased in Athena’s favor. The belt is raised, and here in the main event, we see who is the face of the ROH Women’s Division!

The Code of Honor is upheld, the bell rings and the fans fire up for Athena already. The two circle, tie up, and they go around. They go into a corner, along ropes, then Athena throws Velvet down. Velvet holds on, they roll on the mat with the collar ‘n’ elbow, then they stand up. Athena puts Velvet in a corner, the ref counts, but Athena lets off with a cocky smile. Velvet keeps cool and resets with Athena. They tie up. Velvet wrenches an arm to wristlock, but Athena handsprings and wrenches back. Velvet rolls, kips up, and wrenches back. Velvet headlocks but Athena powers up and out. Velvet runs Athena over, but Athena kips up!

The fans fire up while both women brush themselves off. They reset again, tie up, and Athena headlocks. Velvet powers up and out, but Athena wrenches to whip. Velvet ducks ‘n’ dodges and tilt-o-whirls to RANA, but Athena handsprings through! The fans fire up and Athena cheers herself on. But Velvet DROPKICSK Athena down! Athena gets up, Velvet arm-drags, arm-drags again, and then Velvet cheers herself on. Athena runs up into another arm-drag! Velvet has the armlock but Athena fights up and throws Velvet down by her hair! The fans cheer but the ref reprimands, and things speed up.

Velvet drops, runs up and CALF KICKS Athena down! Athena bails out, Billie there to check on her. Velvet goes to the apron, Athena grabs a leg but Velvet kicks her away. Velvet then ASAI MOONSAULTS land takes Athena down! The fans fire up, Velvet drags Athena up and puts her in the ring, then has her on the apron. Velvet climbs up, brings Athena up, but Athena shoves her back. FLAPJACK off the top buckles! Velvet staggers, Athena reels her back in, APRON BACK SUPLEX! The fans fire up with Athena while BOTB goes picture in picture.

Velvet crawls into the ring but Athena follows her. Athena looms over Velvet, drags her up, then CLUBS her down. Athena stands Velvet up to whip her hard into a corner. Athena revels in the cheers before she runs in and back body blocks! Then Athena goes side to side to forearm SMASH! Athena smiles as Velvet leans against buckles. Athena shoves Velvet down, stomps her around, then drags her back up. Velvet fires body shots, but Athena bumps her off buckles. Velvet avoids the forearm to DOUBLE CHOP! Velvet fires body blows but Athena throws hands! Velvet CHOPS, Athena CHOPS, they CHOP, then Athena CHOPS Velvet off her feet!

The fans cheer while Athena snarls. Athena sits Velvet back up, KICKS her in the back, then KICKS her again! And again! Athena stands Velvet up, bumps her off buckles, then scoops to put Velvet in the Tree of Woe. Athena KICKS away on Velvet’s back, then lets her fall out of the Three. Billie applauds, tells Velvet she should’ve known better, but Velvet swipes at Billie. Billie gets away, cheers Athena on, but Velvet fires hands on Athena! Athena swings back but Velvet bobs ‘n’ weaves! Velvet ROCKS Athena, kicks her legs out, then runs up , into a SPINEBUSTER! Cover, TWO! Athena is annoyed but still in control as BOTB goes to break.

BOTB returns once again as Athena hits buckles! Velvet rallies on Athena with clothesline after clothesline! Velvet runs, tilt-o-whirls and RANAS Athena onto ropes! Velvet runs up to DOUBLE KNEE! Velvet shoves Athena down, runs, and tilt-o-whirls again, REVERSE DDT! Cover, TWO! Athena survives and Velvet is frustrated. Athena crawls away, wanting mercy! But Velvet storms up, only for Athena to YANK Velvet into buckles! Athena then fireman’s carries Velvet for the WASTELAND! Roll through and another fireman’s carry, for another WASTELAND! Another roll through, and then Athena mocks the stirrin’ it up motion!

But Velvet pops up to RANA! Cover, TWO!! Athena escapes, Velvet runs up to wheelbarrow, but Athena URENAGES her down! Cover, TWO!! Athena is furious as Velvet survives! Athena goes up a corner, the fans cheer, and Velvet rises. But Velvet ROUNDHOUSES first! Velvet ROCKS Athena, climbs up after her, then CHOPS! Velvet goes to the very top, to SUPER VICTORY THROW! Athena flounders but she ducks the buzzsaw! Roll up, Velvet rolls through! THE SLICE! And then the tilt-o-whirl DDT!! Cover, TWO!!! Athena survives and Velvet is fuming! Velvet pushes Athena around while the fans rally up.

Athena is in the drop zone, so Velvet goes up top. Velvet tells Billie to shut up, but Athena gets out to the apron. The fans boo but Velvet adjusts position, to leap and SUPER CROSSBODY! Athena catches her!? And then brings Velvet around to FALCON ARROW to the floor! The fans fire up as Athena roars, but so does Velvet as she rises! Only for the SUPERKICK to knock her down! Athena has a wild look on her face and Billie cheers on the Overlord. Athena gets Velvet up, THROWS her into the LED board, then THROWS her around again! Athena drags Velvet up and into the ring, storms in after her, and reels her in! Canadian Rack, but Velvet sunset flips it! TWO!!!

Athena escapes, Velvet runs up, ducks ‘n’ dodges then SUPERKICKS! But Athena DECKS Velvet with a forearm! Athena goes up top, Velvet rises in a daze, to get the O-FACE!! Cover, Athena wins!

Winner: Athena, by pinfall (still ROH Women’s World Champion)

And that’s FIFTY and zero! Fifty wins, no losses, and no slowing down as she title belt clinks with Billie. But as is customary on ROH, Athena sets her belt down, and Billie does, too. They drag Velvet up, mock “stir it up,” but Velvet SLAPS Athena! And SLAPS Billie! But then Athena and Billie mug Velvet! The fans boo as Billie picks up her belt, takes aim, but then QUEEN AMINATA is here! Aminata runs down into the ring, dodges Billie to DECK Athena, then HEADBUTT for Billie! That’s payback for cheating in the TV title match! But then Athena runs up, into an Alabama Lift! AIR RAID CRASH!!

Aminata saves Velvet while also making her own impact, will The Queen not be denied her crown? Or will the Fallen Goddess look to make her pay for this insolence?


My Thoughts:

A really good BOTB but uh, after ten of these, we already know nothing really happens on these. Great action and promos like on Collision, but no titles were ever changing hands. And after two hours of Collision, the crowd was of course tired out. Hook of course defeated Shane but it was a really good showing of Hook’s resilience to take all that damage and still win. Really good match from Roddy and Rocky that Roddy of course won, and turns out I was right in thinking they’d fast track Roddy VS Kyle here. That match will be great stuff, but it’d be a shame if Kyle’s first title shot ends up a loss, even with The Kingdom all there to interfere and distract.

Good promo from Serena to make it clear that she’s having a match with Yuka, just in case it wasn’t clear last week. And then a great main event for the ROH Women’s Championship. Red Velvet looked great even in defeat, and natural move for Aminata to show up and go after Athena & Billie. Aminata really has her pick of the two titles at this point, and while payback on Billie for Supercard is an obvious route, why wouldn’t she go right to the source and take down Athena? Athena’s made it to 50-0, and if not when Athena faced Billie, not when she faced Nyla Rose nor when she faced Shida, her first loss should be to pass the torch to Aminata.

Aminata went through the grind, paid her dues, and has got organically over with ROH viewers, so if she isn’t gonna be the historic first Women’s TV Champ, make her the woman that takes down the top woman in ROH.

My Score: 8.6/10

Mitchell’s AEW Collision Results & Report! (4/13/24)

The Don Callis Family is out for blood!

Published

on

Will the Blackpool Combat Club survive this Collision?

Before the Dynasty dream match of Ospreay VS Danielson, the Don Callis Family wants to not just beat the American Dragon, but to destroy him!

OFFICIAL RESULTS

  • Six Man Tag: The House of Black VS Dante Martin, Action Andretti & Matt Sydal; The House of Black wins.
  • Katsuyori Shibata VS Lee Moriarty; Shibata wins.
  • Daniel Garcia VS Angelico w/ Serpentico; Garcia wins.
  • AEW Women’s World Championship Eliminator: Toni Storm w/ Luther & Mariah May VS AZM w/ Anna Jay; Storm wins and denies AZM a title match.
  • Bryan Danielson & Claudio Castagnoli VS Will Hobbs & Kyle Fletcher; Bryan & Claudio win.

PLAY BY PLAY

The Blackpool Combat Club speaks.

Bryan Danielson says BIG week for BCC. Jon Moxley is the NEW IWGP World Heavyweight Champion, a huge accomplishment. And on Wednesday, Claudio Castagnoli takes on Will Ospreay, then Bryan faces Ospreay at Dynasty. But there’s tonight first. Claudio says Don Callis gave Kyle Fletcher & Will Hobbs this motivational speech that they don’t even need to beat BCC, they just have to hurt BCC. How weird. But it’s easier to beat them than to hurt them, and what kind of faith does that show Callis has in Ospreay? Not much, it seems. Not sure what Callis is thinking. But Claudio has faith that all three of those guys could beat BCC.

But hurt them? People have been trying to hurt Claudio and Bryan for 20 years. Because they see the spotlight, they see how successful BCC is, and they see BCC all over the world. Bryan couldn’t be stopped by a broken orbital bone nor a broken arm. And Claudio’s been fighting week after week after week, consistently like Swiss clockwork for over 15 YEARS. Because it’s not about the work and the talk here in front of the camera, but the work behind cameras, the stuff you don’t see, that goes into making this look so easy at the level they are at. Bryan agrees there, and tells Don Callis that he wants his guys to hurt them, to hurt Bryan and to hurt Claudio.

Guess what?! That’s not gonna fly tonight! Because Bryan goes out there every single night to hurt people! That’s what BCC does! Violence is their specialty! DCF will not only see that tonight, but on Wednesday and in St. Louis. The American Dragon is all fired up, but will he and the Swiss Superman burn down the Powerhouse and the Protostar?

 

Six Man Tag: The House of Black VS Dante Martin, Action Andretti & Matt Sydal!

Malakai Black, Brody King & Buddy Matthews are preparing for the coming war with Adam Copeland, Mark Briscoe & Eddie Kingston, but they’re taking on three men who are much different from Copeland, Briscoe & Kingston.

Backstage interview with Toni Storm, Mariah May & Luther.

Lexi Nair is with the AEW Women’s World Champion, as well as her protege and her butler, and says we saw a lot on Dynamite. Kissing, champagne, and- “Yes, we did see a lot, didn’t we, darling? Get used to it. Because we saw a Champion’s Champagne Celebration that made an Italian woman curse, and turned Lightning Daffodil into a diddling do-how! And as for the kissing… There has been no greater love than this.” Storm turns to Mariah, but Lexi interrupts by saying she meant the kiss Mariah had with Mina- Mariah cuts Lexi off there. Can’t Lexi see Toni has a lot on her plate right now?

Toni has a title defense on a PPV coming soon, AND a match against AZM tonight. Plus, Anna Jay’s all serious~ right now. Yes, yes, Azumi-san. You want her to kiss your bottom? Well, that makes you and a thousand other perverts! Toni will give AZM a beating so intense, it’ll be featured in a fetish periodical! And the name of that publication? Chin up, tits out, and watch for the shoe…! The leading lady leads the way out, will she send AZM crying back to Stardom?

 

AEW shares footage from after Dynamite.

Chris Jericho found Taz backstage to talk with him about the Six Man Tag. We all saw what happened, and Jericho just wants to explain himself to Hook. Jericho is just trying to do what’s right for Hook but Hook won’t listen. Hook won’t answer his phone or his texts, but Taz knows his son better than anyone. Can Taz please ask Hook if he’ll talk to Jericho? Taz says he’ll try, a lot of the time he doesn’t really hear from Hook, Hook’s his own man. Of course, of course. Taz says Jericho may have pissed Hook off. And when Hook gets pissed, it’s… Well, Taz will try.

Jericho appreciates that, and as it turns out, this coming Wednesday, Taz will broker a face to face! Will #LionHook still make it work? Or will this Jericho only #SendHook into a stronger rage?

 

Katsuyori Shibata VS Lee Moriarty w/ Shane Taylor Promotions!

The Wrestler got caught by #TAIGASTYLE all because Lionheart Jericho couldn’t get out of his own way. Will Shibata be able to handle things much better on his own? Or will Moriarty sink his fangs into Shibata one more time?

Collision returns and Shibata gets back in the ring after having wrecked Lee on the outside. But then Lee wrenches Shibata. Shibata ROCKS Lee, Lee wrenches, repeat! Lee CHOPS Shibata, but Shibata doesn’t budge! Lee CHOPS again, but Shibata eggs him on! Lee CHOPS, CHOPS and CHOPS, but Shibata is leaning into the shots! Shibata backs Lee down even though Lee CHOPS again and again! Shibata eggs Lee on, Ogogo coaches Lee, and the CHOPS keep going. Shibata ROCKS Lee with a forearm! Lee flops in a corner, Shibata fires more forearms on him! Shibata UPPERCUTS, then JABS, then COHPS! JAB CHOP JAB CHOP!

Moriarty put up a fight, but it wasn’t enough to win. So Shane Taylor attacks from behind! The fans boo as Shane stomps Shibata at the ropes then talks trash! But here comes HOOK! The Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil won’t let Shane beat up his friend like that! Lee runs up but Hook catches him for an EL CAMINO! Shane stares Hook down, their FTW Championship match set for later tonight on Battle of the Belts. But given that, Shane stands down and STP regroups. They’ll look to handle this later, but it be rumble, bad man, rumble?

 

Backstage interview with Athena & Billie Starkz.

Lexi Nair is in her Minion In Training Letterman’s jacket as this is an Emergency Minion Empowerment Meeting! She is with the ROH Women’s World Champion AND ROH Women’s Television Champion, and Athena defends her title against Red Velvet in the main event of Battle of the Belts! The main event, ON TNT, LIVE! Athena deserves this because she is that damn good! Billie agrees, but says Red is really good. She made it really far in the Women’s TV Title tournament. Yes, but Billie won that, right? She did! So Athena knows Red Velvet is a top star, Red Velvet is a threat, but Athena is the TOP champion! The BEST champion in wrestling today!

Athena is the Minion Overlord, the Fallen Goddess, the REAL Alpha, the Forever Champion, and tonight, Athena makes an example out of Velvet to show the world what they’ve been missing. Will Athena be the one serving L’s to The Chef tonight?

 

Backstage interview with The Undisputed Kingdom.

Collision returns as Lexi is now with Roderick Strong, Mike Bennett & Matt Taven and says as of late, they’ve had a lot of success. Would they attribute any of that success to Wardlow? “LEXIII~! How dare you. How dare you give credit to anybody but me.” Roddy is a fighting champion, a giving champion. Do you not see the opportunity Roddy is giving to these gentlemen who do not even deserve it? He is making them earn it because they do not deserve it. How dare she? But hey, Roddy has been doing it on his own, just like Kyle O’Reilly. Kyle inspires Roddy.

But enough about that, let’s talk tonight. Tonight, Roddy puts on a show. What’s the show called? The Beating of a Lifetime! That’s the Kingdom’s favorite show! But will Rocky Romero cancel that show to make it The Azucar Hour?

 

Daniel Garcia VS Angelico w/ Serpentico!

The Dragonslayer has been getting back up with win after win, and he doesn’t plan on stopping now! Will he turn it up a notch as we get closer and closer to Dynasty? Or will the South African Stud prove he’s still worthy of some opportunities, too?

The bell rings, the fans rally and the two circle. They feel things out, tie up, and Angelico wrenches to a hammerlock. Angelico spins Garcia, wristlocks, but Garcia pries the hold open to wrench back. Angelico spins, slips through, spins Garcia, then slips around again to arm-drag! Garcia gets up fast but Angelico does his own dance. The fans boo but Garcia keeps cool. The two tie up, Garcia waistlocks, spins, snapmares, ghost pin, TWO! Angelico is up but Garcia clinches to to arm-drag! Leg-sweep, cover, ONE! Angelico puts a leg guard up as he calls for a timeout! The fans cheer as Garcia shows sportsmanship and lets Angelico get up.

The fans fire up as Angelico endures! Angelico’s shoulders are down, ONE as he sits back up. Garcia puts on the pressure but Angelico turns things over! Garcia endures now, but he fights it back over! Angelico endures again, stays off the mat, and turns things over again! Garcia turns it back! Then Angelico, then Garcia! Angelico has it!

Garcia beats his leg into working, the fans rally behind him, and he stands. Garcia counter punches Angelico, then does it again! Garcia then wrenches and BUTTERFLY SUPLEXES! The fans fire up as Garcia runs in at the corner to forearm SMASH! Garcia climbs up, rains down fists, and goes to nine before he puts up his dukes, to DO HIS DANCE! The fans fire up as Garcia hops down and runs corner to corner, HAYMAKER! Garcia runs up again, choke grip!

Angelico breaks free, Garcia CHOPS and SAIDOS! Garcia storms around, gets the legs, KNEEBAR!! Angelico flails, reaches out, but TAPS, Garcia wins!

Winner: Daniel Garcia, by submission

A great fight leads to a great win for Red Death! Will this momentum help Garcia be primed for a title match on the other side of Dynasty?

 

Pac speaks.

“Kazuchika Okada. Believe it or not, bonny lad, I would like to thank you. Not only for accepting my challenge, but also for walloping me around the head with a big dirty lump of steel. That was very brave of you, wasn’t it, huh? And now, as a result, I have a perpetual headache that serves as motivation to remind everybody of exactly who I am. Now I may not be tall and handsome, I am not a Japanese superstar, I do not own a Ferrari, and I’m certainly not flavor of the month. Okada, you may think you’re God’s gift to professional wrestling, but you’re not! You’re CRAP! And what I am is better than you!

“And next Sunday, at AEW Dynasty, live from St. Louis, Missouri, I am going to relish the opportunity to prove it in front of the entire world. You understand me, hm? Good.” The Bastard is ready, will he violently end The Rainmaker’s reign?

 

AEW Women’s World Championship Eliminator: Toni Storm w/ Luther & Mariah May VS AZM w/ Anna Jay!

The leading lady of AEW knows her next big picture will have “Lightning Daffodil” starring against her, but she has to be careful not to take tonight’s performance too lightly. Will Storm strike down AZM here in Kentucky? Or will the Highspeed Superstar find her way into the Dynasty picture?

The bell rings and the fans rally up already. The two circle, feel things out, and then tie up. Storm throws AZM down then laughs at her, but AZM gets right up. They reset, circle again, and tie up. They go around, Storm puts AZM on ropes, then sits her down! Storm poses and the fans cheer, but AZM is right up to fire forearms! The fans rally, Storm just shrugs those off! AZM runs to RAM Storm but Storm still laughs! AZM runs and RAMS Storm again, Storm chuckles this time. AZM fakes a punch to stomp Storm’s foot! AZM runs, but Storm follows and runs AZM over! The fans cheer but then AZM kips right up!

AZM ducks ‘n’ dodges, trips Storm then keeps moving, PENALTY KICK! Basement dropkick! The fans fire up as AZM kips up again! AZM pushes Storm around, steps on her, and the ref counts. AZM steps away at 4, the fans rally up, and AZM runs to DOUBLE STOMP! Cover, ONE!! Storm toughs it out and the fans rally as AZM goes to the apron. AZM climbs, Storm DECKS her! Storm then runs to HIP ATTACK AZM to the floor! AZM tumbles away to the ramp, but Anna gets Mariah in a QUEENSLAYER SLEEPER! Mariah RAMS Anna into railing! Mariah and Anna fight now, the fans fire up, and AZM gets outta the way!

Storm is flabbergasted as Anna and Mariah brawl their way to the back! Storm fetches AZM but AZM whips her into steel steps! Then AZM pushes Storm around, goes up the apron, and fans fire up for the PENALTY KICK! Storm is dazed but the fans fire up as Collision goes picture in picture.

Storm ROCKS AZM in return! AZM fires another forearm, Storm ROCKS her again! AZM fires more forearms, then blocks a kick to ROUNDHOUSE!

AZM tumbles and flounders into a corner, and Storm takes aim! She’s ready for her close-up! SWEET HIP MUSIC~! STORM ZERO PILEDRIVER!! Cover, Storm wins!

Winner: Toni Storm, by pinfall (denies AZM a title opportunity)

That was certainly fast and furious, but you can’t beat a classic like Timeless Toni! Mariah returns from backstage with a couple glasses of the bubbly. Mariah and Toni link arms while they drink up, and Storm brings Mariah to her bosom. Storm cuddles Mariah, then shoves her, then drags her back up to bring her away. Will nothing and no one take the spotlight away from the AEW Women’s World Champion?

 

Backstage interview with Red Velvet.

Lexi Nair is now with The Chef and brings up tonight’s title match with Athena. How is Velvet feeling about such a high profile match? High profile? Red Velvet IS high profile! And she saw what Lexi’s “boss,” Athena had to say, really stirring up the pot. But Athena, you wanna stir it up? They can stir it up? In BOTB’s main event, Red Velvet will knock you out! Red Velvet is not a stranger to main events, title pictures or high profile matches. Tonight, Velvet makes an example out of Athena, and shows everyone why it was a mistake for Athena to step into Velvet’s kitchen! Will The Chef make Athena eat crow while serving up that L?

 

Mark Briscoe speaks.

“Now House of Black, I’ve been doing this dance with y’all a little while now, and I’m starting to understand how y’all operate. Starting to understand y’all’s M-O. You try to intimidate me. You try to strike fear into the hearts of men. Well I done told you, I fear no man, I fear no evil. And ancient wisdom says the violent take it by force. Now lemme tell you, Eddie Kingston, Adam Copeland, and Mark Briscoe, we some violent men! And at Dynasty, we bringing the violence, babeh! So heed my advice, House of Black! Be afraid, be very afraid!” The Sussex County Chicken is ready for a fight, will he, the Rated R Superstar and Mad King tear down The House of Black once and for all?

 

Tony Schiavone is on stage.

He says Dynasty is coming, and a big match on that card is the AEW Women’s World title, Timeless Toni Storm VS the former champion, Thunder Rosa! The fans cheer as La Mera Mera makes her way out and joins Schiavone on stage. Schiavone says we saw what happened on Dynamite when Storm hit her with champagne and smudged her face paint. But the fact is, Rosa never lost her title. She has a chance to redeem herself and get the title back. Rosa says that is right. Before that, she wants to address something else. See all these people here? She wants to thank all of them for making this comeback so special for her.

And of course, thank you to everyone watching at home seeing them on TBS, TNT and all over the world! Without you, we wouldn’t have made all these wonderful memories the last five years. Without you, we wouldn’t have made AEW what it is today. The fans cheer that, and Rosa says she is here for a reason. That is to remind people that she doesn’t need help. And she means you, too, Deonna Purrazzo. Rosa wants to remind everyone that she’s done a lot on her own. When she earned her college degree, she earned her US citizenship, she helped a lot of people as a social worker, and won all those matches even before AEW, and especially when she won the AEW title.

But most importantly, Rosa fought so hard here to be in AEW, and she’s still here in AEW, because it is where the best wrestle! And “Antonia,” Rosa thought you believed the same things. What happened to you, homegirl? Weren’t they together in the ring? Weren’t they #ThunderStorm? When did Storm go completely crazy!? Rosa was so proud of being a champion, even though her body couldn’t carry her as far as her passion. Rosa had to heal. Then that day, something died inside of her. But Rosa has a chance, another opportunity, and it is important that Toni knows it will happen in St. Louis.

Rosa wants to humble Toni, to remind her that Rosa didn’t leave because she “couldn’t carry” the weight of that title. At Dynasty, Rosa carries more than that title. She will carry the pride of HER people, of her family, and if she has to break every single bone in her body to uplift and empower the women of this locker room fighting for just one opportunity and respect, because they also believe in AEW… Then Antonia, kiss your little clone goodbye. You made a big mistake on trying to erase Rosa’s mask. You don’t wanna see what’s underneath. You can’t kill what’s already dead! And on Sunday, Rosa comes for Storm, for the title, and to drag Storm’s soul to HELL!!

La Mera Mera is all fired up, and she smears her own face paint to make her point. Will she smash that spotlight and leave the leading lady in the dark?

 

Deonna Purrazzo speaks.

“Thunder Rosa, if you don’t want my help, that’s fine. I’ll help myself. When I staked my claim at the AEW Women’s World Championship, it wasn’t personal. It’s because frankly, I don’t think Toni Storm embodies what it means to be a world champion. But I do. I’m a workhorse, I’m a thoroughbred, I am the Virtuosa, Deonna Purrazzo. And I could stand here, make excuses about why I’m not the AEW Women’s World Champion right now, or I could do something about it. It seems if I can’t get one Toni Storm, I might as well get the other. So next week, Mariah May VS The Virtuosa, Deonna Purrazzo, and I’m gonna break your arm.”

The message has been sent, will Deonna make sure the leading lady’s understudy won’t make it to Dynasty to support Toni Storm?

 

BREAKING NEWS for Dynasty!

To raise the stakes on this match, The Young Bucks VS FTR Part 4, it will be a LADDER MATCH! No pinfalls or submissions, only the team that can literally rise above will become the NEW AEW World Tag Team Champions! But is this still playing right into the EVPs’ hands? Or can Cash Wheeler & Dax Harwood find a way to come out on top?

 

The Don Callis Family speaks.

Kyle Fletcher says tonight in the main event, he and Will Hobbs are on a mission for the Don Callis family. That is to protect the golden goose. This Wednesday Night Dynamite, Claudio will end up a cakewalk for Ospreay! And Dynasty, Bryan will be the exact same thing, all thanks to DCF. Hobbs says not to worry about next week, let’s just focus on tonight. Tonight, they got Claudio and Danielson, and tonight the DCF expects a hefty fine. Bryan might as well just expect not to walk out on his own. One last message has been sent, but now it’s time to put up or shut up! Will the Protostar & Powerhouse pulverize the BCC?

My Thoughts:

Really good Collision, though half of it was a go-home to BOTB X with it being on right after this. Good promos from Athena and Billie, from The Undisputed Kingdom, and Red Velvet, but yeah, no titles are changing hands, even if it is the tenth BOTB special. Good promo from Mark Briscoe to add hype to the coming Six Man Tag, and of course The House of Black won tonight’s Six Man Tag. Good promo from Storm and Mariah ahead of Storm’s match with AZM that Storm of course won, but also good stuff with Anna and Mariah fighting. Good promos from Rosa and Deonna to add to the build, and maybe Rosa beats Storm at Dynasty, but hard to say with a week still to go.

Good promo from Jericho and Taz to set up this whole “meeting” with Hook, and I have a feeling that is where #LionHook really falls apart and we get Jericho VS Hook for the FTW Championship at Dynasty, or maybe Double or Nothing at the latest. Really good match from Shibata and Moriarty, and good save from Hook after to add a little more to the FTW Championship match scheduled for BOTB. Great match from Garcia VS Angelico though it was just for the sake of having a great match. I think I said before but Garcia really should get at a title after Dynasty, just not sure what title that’ll be.

Pac has a good promo to call out Okada, and then quite the big move for the tag title match to now be a ladder match. If feel like that’s just them telegraphing that The Bucks are winning because ladder matches are certainly more their thing than FTR’s. And good promos from both BCC and DCF, though the latter wasn’t needed other than to fill time. We know what Kyle & Hobbs were gonna go for after Callis’ promo, we didn’t need them doubling down on it. And while BCC of course won the match, the DCF then of course attacked after. The math here is a bit of a wash, Claudio surely loses to Ospreay, and then Ospreay and Bryan go in more or less even so it could be anyone’s win at Dynasty.

My Score: 8.7/10
