Jack Perry is here!

Fans boo as “Hollywood” Jack Perry leads the way as four men carry the FTW Championship on a palanquin adorned with flowers. Jack did promise he was going to retire this title, so he’s already making this like a funeral. He takes the belt from the palanquin and dismisses the pallbearers to set the belt on the table. Fans boo as Jack gets the mic now, and Jack pretends to be saddened by this occasion of his own making. Fans chant “YOU SUCK! YOU SUCK!” but Jack says, “These things are never easy. As the greatest FTW Champion to ever live, I felt a personal responsibility to come out here and say a few nice words about this title.”

Fans boo more as Jack says the FTW Championship was a good title. It had its ups and downs, it was misunderstood at times. And tell you what, this thing grew near and dear to Jack’s heart. Because in 100 years, when people look up FTW in the history books, they’re gonna see Jack’s face right next to it. But instead of being sad that it’s over, let’s remember the good times. Play the tape. A video plays, and it opens with Jack and the title in a hot tub. And the tanning bed. And sunbathing. And in the pool. And the shower?! In the limousines, having a cookout, going for bike rides down the street, and even breakfast in bed.

Jack “gets teared up” seeing all those, and he wipes his eyes and his nose with an orange handkerchief. Fans boo but he says that was beautiful. “What a beautiful legacy that will be left behind by this title, thanks to me.” Fans boo more but Jack says that it is finally time that we send this title to a better place. Jack then brings out a SLEDGEHAMMER! Fans boo as Jack sets the belt down, and raises the hammer! But the lights go down! And a new video plays! HOOK is doing chin-ups with traffic lights! “Jack, you can’t destroy that championship. Because I am the FTW Championship. And the FTW Championship is my bloodline.”

Jack stole something very important from Hook, so he’s coming for what’s his. The lights come back up, and HOOK IS BEHIND JACK!! Jack turns around and fans go nuts as Hook catches him for an EL CAMINO SUPLEX! And then he RAMS Jack into the picture of the FTW title Jack had on display! And then Hook TOSSES Jack over the table, taking the table down with him!! Hook moves the table aside, putting it in a corner! Jack crawls but Hook drags him back up, to TAZZ PLEX through the table!! Fans are thunderous as Hook picks the belt up and drapes it over Jack. Hook gets the mic now, and he says, “Wembley. Sunday.”

Fans fire up, the match has been made! Jack Perry VS Hook for the FTW Championship, once and for all! Will Jack be ready to go All In against the Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil?


Six Man Tag: Orange Cassidy, Penta El Zero Miedo & Eddie Kingston VS The Superbad Squad!

Freshly Squeezed held onto the AEW International Championship through Rampage, but now he prepares to rampage in Wembley Stadium! Will he, Penta and the Mad King show they have #CEROMIEDO over what’s coming at All In? Or will The Butcher, the Blade & Kip Sabian do some damage before the Blackpool Combat Club does?

The tensions are running high, as everybody in this match has history with each other. The trios sort out and Eddie says his best amigo’s got this. Penta gets in Kip’s face and shoves him. Kip shoves back, they go forehead to forehead, and Kip mocks Cero Miedo. Fans chant “CERO! MIEDO!” and Penta gets them even more fired up. Penta makes sure Kip is listening. “CERO! MIEDO!” Then he pie faces Kip! Kip shoves Penta, so Penta takes off the glove! The bell finally rings, and Penta throws the glove to Alex Abrahantes. He catches it, but then Penelope Ford shoves him down! Fans boo but then a brawl breaks out in the ring!

Blade stomps Penta, Cassidy fires off on Kip, and Eddie throws hands with Butcher! Things spill out, Kip RAMS Cassidy into railing and Blade knocks Penta down!

Kip distracts the ref as Butcher throws Cassidy down! Kip runs in to CANNONBALL! Tag to Blade, Kip feeds Cassidy to the FISHERMAN SCREW! Blade grins and dusts his hands off, then he soaks up the heat as Collision goes picture in picture.

Blade drags Cassidy up, tags in Butcher, and they DOUBLE HEADBUTT Cassidy down! Butcher drops a leg, brother! Then he drags Cassidy up and whips him to a corner hard! Cassidy falls and Butcher stares Eddie down. Butcher drags Cassidy up, tags in Blade, and they mug Cassidy. Snapmare and KICK to the back! Cover, TWO! Blade clamps onto Cassidy with a chinlock! Cassidy endures, fights up, reaches out, but Blade throws him down! Blade soaks up the heat, tags in Butcher, and they mug Cassidy.

Winners: Orange Cassidy, Penta El Zero Miedo & Eddie Kingston, by pinfall

The NJPW Strong Openweight Champion finishes it off for this unlikeliest of trio! But now, they must regroup with Chuck Taylor & Trent Beretta in London. Will they survive going All In on the Wembley Stadium Stampede?

Collision returns, and Best Friends have joined their friends!

Chuckie T has the mic to say, “Jon Moxley. Claudio Castagnoli. Santana. Ortiz. Wheeler Yuta.” Trent snatches the mic to say, “You SOBs broke my mom’s van! You disrespected the sweetest little lady who’s ever lived, and you messed up.” Fans chant for “SUE! SUE! SUE!” Trent says he’ll wrap this up: Wembley Stadium for Stadium Stampede, they’re not coming to hug and have fun. NO. Best Friends, Penta & Kingston are coming to hurt you! And they’re gonna do it for Sue. Fans cheer that! Eddie takes the mic, but Cassidy wants his turn first. Eddie says fine, and Cassidy even takes off his sunglasses so this IS serious.

But then The BCC interrupt via the tron! Moxley tells Eddie, “my compadre,” calm down for a second and remember that Eddie made this challenge. Eddie wanted Stadium Stampede, and Eddie said the BCC could pick anyone. So why oh why are you surprised? Santana says “A year of pain, a year of struggle, a year of torture. But most of all, a year of realizing who’s real and who’s not. It all culminates! 80 THOUSAND PEOPLE PLUS! Wembley Stadium, baby. Are y’all ready to walk through the fire? Because we live in it.” Eddie’s ready to go, he gets outta the ring! Eddie’s storming to the back!

Claudio warns Kingston that he used to be on it, but in their second match in AEW, Claudio saw Eddie turn his back on each and every one in the BCC’s team. And if Claudio was a betting man, that in one year’s time, all the people Eddie’s in the ring with now will not be his friends anymore. But hey, that’s not Eddie’s fault, right? It’s never Eddie’s fault! Just blame everybody else for your mistakes! Eddie is a hypocrite, and he knows it! Ortiz says, “A wise man once said, ‘You reap what you sow.'” But uh, Eddie isn’t in the ring! He’s barging into the back! Where are they? The cameramen know, right? Where’d they go?!

The BCC is gone, Eddie starts throwing chairs. He demands to know where the BCC went, but then he talks to the camera. The BCC wants a message? He’s not surprised Santana & Ortiz pulled this. He gets it, he even respects it. But that doesn’t mean he won’t gut them and watch them die in the middle of that ring! And Jon, get outta the way. Eddie knows his beautiful wife and beautiful baby girl, so he doesn’t wanna hurt Jon. Just stay out of the way. Yuta, you’re getting buried. And Claudio, you’re left for last, so he can burn you and scar you forever. And yeah, that’s messed up. Eddie kisses the camera then heads out, will all the Mad King says become reality on Sunday?


AEW hears from the Young Bucks and FTR.

They had their group interview with Renee Paquette, but now each team speaks a bit more candidly about the other. What do Matt & Nick Jackson think of Cash Wheeler & Dax Harwood? Matt doesn’t like ’em. Cash says it was 2016 when FTR started making some noise in tag team wrestling, making waves for themselves. Until then, the Bucks were the uncrowned kings of tag team wrestling. Cody Rhodes is the one who came up with “F T R” on the hit YouTube show, Being The Elite. At the time it just meant “Eff” The Revival. Matt chuckles.

Dax says this FTR thing started and that was something that has stuck with Dax because he holds grudges. And now, in 2023, he still hasn’t gotten past it. Nick says of course it made Dax & Cash furious. The Bucks were laughing about it, and they were laughing cuz they knew they were better than The Revival. Cash said The Revival never had to acknowledge The Bucks because the Bucks were taking shots at The Revival, all because The Bucks were finally questioned as the best tag team in the world. That carried over when Dax & Cash came to AEW, and it was the main reason they even did come to AEW.

Wembley Stadium will be the bow on the legacy for Cash & Dax. It is FTR VS Bucks, round 3, for the titles, to finally get to the bottom of who is the best. The biggest show of all time, it is almost intimidating. But at the end, Dax promises he and Cash will be THE absolute best team, bar none. What happens when these two top tier teams finally settle the score?


The Dark Order VS Action Andretti & Darius Martin!

Alongside Evil Uno, Alex Reynolds & John Silver have found their edge again, ready to cut through the rest of the roster to get back to former glory.

Silver keeps him away, Action rolls, handsprings and cartwheels to wrench and snapmare, then ghost pin! TWO, but Action facelocks. Silver RAMS Action into the corner, tag to Reynolds and they mug Action. Reynolds then whips to ELBOW Action down! Cover, ONE!

Collision goes picture in picture Reynolds keeps on Action. Reynolds scrapes his sole off Action’s face, then sucker punches Darius! The ref keeps Darius back, allowing Reynolds to CHOKE Action! Reynolds drags Action up, bumps him off buckles, and tags in Silver. Silver and Reynolds mug Action, and Silver throws more heavy hands! Silver UPPERCUTS Action, whips him corner to corner, and then CLOBBERS him! Then he sucker punches Darius! Silver taunts Action, pushes him down, then runs to drop a knee! Cover, TWO! Silver is annoyed but he taunts Action reaching out. Silver then KICKS Action down!

Tag to Reynolds, he has Action on ropes to CHOKE him! The ref counts, Reynolds lets off to run, but Action avoids the straddle attack! Reynolds gets caught up on the ropes! Both men are down but heading for their corners, and Collision goes to break!

Winners: The Dark Order, by pinfall

Fast and furious for sure, but Silver & Reynolds come out on top! Will racking up the wins between AEW and ROH convince more and more people to #JoinDarkOrder?


AEW shares a post show interview from Dynamite.

Lexi Nair was with Darby Allin & Nick Wayne after their big win on Wednesday, and congratulates Nick on his first win in AEW. However, we did see Christian Cage have some choice words for him in regards to All In. But then AR Fox walked in. Fox apologizes to Nick for everything. But 16 years, it took Fox to get somewhere like AEW. He never thought he would. But when he lost to Orange Cassidy, he just thought everyone lost faith in him, like Darby and the fans. He panicked and snapped. He lost his dad, too. So he can’t give him Bobby Wayne back, but he can give him his word. Fox offers a handshake, but Nick shakes his head.

Nick storms off, Darby says he knows Fox is sorry. Darby takes Fox’s hand to then hurry after Nick. Will Darby get Nick to see things the same way? Or will Fox be the reason Nick stays away from All In?


The Acclaimed meet Billy Gunn in the gym.

Max Caster & Anthony Bowens are happy to see him, and they all scissor finger! Music video time! “Everybody wanna be the badass ’til they have a bad day, ’til they get the backlash, ’til they get the uh-uh, ’til they get the backhand. But we gettin’ back up after every single crash land, after every, single, time. You know that we fightin’ through the pain, movin’ to the top o’ the line. Ain’t nobody messin’ with Acclaimed. It’s the return of the Gunnslinger, the One and Only. Make the House say their prayers, they gettin’ holy. Of course, back on course, it’s from the source. I’m proud to report we’re back at full force.

“Back on the horse, put your back on the bench and we raisin’ the bar. We back at a 10, tension, okay? We only got tired. Blowin’ up the House of Black like Oppenheimer. Billy took his lumps, bumps were just minor. We got your back, B, on the one-liners. Stayin’ on the grind like I stay on beat. Got our hands in the middle like Acclaimed on three. Hey, everybody wanna be the badass ’til they have a bad day, ’til they get the backlash, ’til they get the uh-uh, ’til they get the backhand. But we gettin’ back up after every single crash land, every single time. You know that we fightin’ through the pain, movin’ to the top o’ the line. Ain’t nobody messin’ with Acclaimed.

“House of Black likes to do it in the dark. So we turn your lights, your Hart we pick apart. It’s clap on, clap off, for your entrances. You make the fans go to sleep with your sentences. Platinum took Buddy to his darkest hour. Black out on yo’ ass, now you lost the power. The pretender, pick up on a chain gang. Buddy, you are just a ginger in face paint. Kept the same name, actin’ like it ain’t lame, we clash with your jackass so you train in vain. Bowens, I’ma let you knock Brody King out. Hit him so hard, you gonna knock his NuvaRing out! I can’t understand a thing that he sings ’bout. Straightedge hardcore show? Ugh, kill me now!

“Why you walkin’ to the ring like a séance? You couldn’t draw money with a box of green crayons! And Billy is back to beat Malakai! Break ya bones repeatedly, never let ’em calcify! Think this pussycat needs to start countin’ lives. You ain’t gonna walk away with an ounce of pride! You speak in hushed tones unironically. When you talk on the mic, it sounds like dark comedy. Bet you smell your farts in large quantities! We don’t give a s*it, nah, we don’t give apologies!

“Everybody wanna be the badass ’til they have a bad day, ’til they get the backlash, ’til they get the uh-uh, ’til they get the backhand. But we gettin’ back up after every single crash land, after every, single, time. You know that we fightin’ through the pain, movin’ to the top o’ the line. Ain’t nobody messin’ with Acclaimed.” Another instant classic from Platinum Max, but will he, Bowens & Billy Gunn be golden once and for all?


AEW looks closer at the AEW Women’s World Championship Fatal 4 Way.

Excalibur feels that so far, Hikaru Shida still had the best reign of anyone. Taz points out she was champion during Pandemic Era, so she was competing essentially in front of no one. But now she’s a two-time champion, and Renee Paquette points out the crowd reaction when Shida beat Toni Storm on Dynamite 200. Shida says there is no “crap” in who she is. Meanwhile, Saraya has been on a press tour, Good Morning Britain, to prepare for this match. She hasn’t wrestled in the UK in over 9 years, so there’s a lot of pressure as the hometown girl. Britt Baker says she knows her three opponents better than they know themselves.

Excalibur says Shida, Britt and Storm know what it takes to be on top in AEW. But all four are still four of the best in all of pro-wrestling. Shida says she has more she wants to do with the title. Storm feels that with her two friends out there with her, all will go according to plan. Britt can’t think of anything more than to hold the title again, but Shida says nothing will stop her from still being AEW Women’s World Champion. It’s still anyone’s to win, who comes out on top after going All In?


“Big Bill” Morrissey w/ Ricky Starks VS Vary Morales!

The human tower has The Absolute as his manager, and so far, it’s worked out. Will Starks continue this “war” with AEW he promised? How far will he and Bill go as a destructive duo?

The bell rings and Vary runs in to SHOTGUN! Bill stays up but Vary SHOTGUNS again! Vary kicks and fires hands! Bill shoves Vary, vary ducks ‘n’ dodges and CROSSBODIES, but Bill catches him! And pops him up to a trophy lift! Then DROPS him! That’s a good ten foot drop right there! Bill sits Vary up and shouts, “You wanna hit me?! HUH!?” Bill drags Vary up by hs head to then SWING him around, and THROW him down! Bill then runs in to SPLASH at the corner! Vary wobbles and falls over, but Bill isn’t done with him! Bill drags Vary up, to whip and BOOT!! Starks says this is just too easy.

Bill drags Vary up, brings him around, and then choke grips! Bill lifts Vary up, walks around with him, then hits the SKYSCRAPER CHOKE SLAM!! Cover, Bill wins!

Winner: “Big Bill” Morrissey, by pinfall

Starks says he told us so, and then he joins Bill in the ring. Starks gets a mic to say, “Cut the music!” Fans boo but Starks says, “I see you, Sticky Ricky. Hey, that was a great effort. You remind me of a young Steamboat. But lemme remind you what I did to Steamboat.” HE LASHES VARY! Aw, sorry, sorry, he’s not feeling it. So how ’bout this? Next week, Starks will have an even bigger strap. But for now, this will do. Bill stands on Vary’s hand so he can’t get away, as Starks LASHES him again and again and again! More refs rush in, he tells them, “I’m sorry, Milk Dud, and I’m sorry Whatever Your Name Is woman.” He tells Bill, “Let’s get outta here.”

Fans boo as Starks & Bill head out, but will there be consequences for the continued out-of-line behavior?


Backstage interview with Ruby Soho.

Lexi Nair is with the Runaway and says as of late, she’s been after the TBS Champion, Kris Statlander. Just last night on Rampage, Ruby and Kris kinda… crossed paths, if you will. Ruby says that apparently she wasn’t clear with Kris, so she’ll spell it out. Ruby tells Kris that she is challenging for the TBS Championship in Chicago at All Out, and she will beat her, again. Because Kris may be #MoreThanAWoman, but she will always be less than an Outcast! Ruby has issued her warning and her challenge, will she and the Galaxy’s Greatest tear it up in the Windy City?


Willow Nightingale VS Robyn Renegade w/ Charlette Renegade!

The Babe with the Power, the 2023 Queen of Harts, has been fighting for her own title opportunities, but the same can be said for both Renegade Twins. Robyn has been stirring up trouble in ROH, will she start some trouble here on Collision? Or will Willow put her own stamp on the AEW Women’s Division?

The bell rings, the two circle, and they tie up. Willow and Robyn go around, Robyn waistlocks but Willow pries the hold open. Willow switches, SLAMS Robyn down, and fans fire up!

But Willow powers up to THROW Robyn away! Charlette checks Robyn, Willow runs in, but Robyn sends her into buckles! Robyn fires off, then lets off as the ref counts. Robyn brings Willow around, ROCKS her with a right, then runs. But Willow runs her over!

Fans fire up as Willow runs, rolls, and bypasses Robyn to ELBOW her down! Willow then runs to SPLASH! Cover, TWO! Willow frowns but she drags Robyn up again. Willow suplexes, Una Amiga!

The Renegades regroup and fans boo.

But Willow goes to the apron! She shouts, and PENALTY KICKS Charlette! Robyn grabs at Willow’s leg, and she trips Willow up! Rough landing on the apron, and Willow gets in the ring. Robyn helps Charlette up, then goes into the ring as Collision goes picture in picture.

Robyn runs in at the corner to SPLASH, then she fires off forearms! Robyn stomps a mudhole in but the ref counts. Robyn digs her boots in, lets off at 4, and she distracts the ref so Charlette can CHOKE Willow! Robyn then runs side to side to BOOT WASH! Robyn drags Willow up, snapmares, and covers, ONE!! Willow is tough, fans rally up, and Robyn scowls. Robyn drags Willow up, CLUBS away on her, but Willow hits back! Robyn CLUBS Willow again and has her on ropes. Robyn whips, Willow ducks ‘n’ dodges but Robyn still ELBOWS her down! Cover, TWO! Robyn grows frustrated but she clamps on a chinlock.

A big win for Willow, and she is more than ready for a title opportunity! Will she be aiming for that AEW Women’s World Championship the moment All In is over?


AEW takes a closer look at Miro VS “Powerhouse” Will Hobbs.

A battle of philosophies and fury is coming for All Out in Chicago. Taz says there is no fear in Hobbs, and no fear in Miro, “so to see these two massive gladiators collide, it’s gonna be epic.” Hobbs says Miro can pray to whatever deity he believes in now, go to the Great Redeemer to get that strength he needs to believe he can win. Excalibur says Hobbs is among that 1% of people who could not only hold his own against Miro, but he could take the fight and beat Miro. Will anyone be able to believe what they’re gong to see between these two behemoths?


Backstage interview with Kris Statlander.

Lexi is with the TBS Champion and asks her about what Ruby Soho said earlier tonight, calling her out for the title at All Out. Kris will address the reason behind her actions last night on Rampage first. Kris is so sick of the Outcasts! Of them taking advantage of others, of them constantly playing games and acting like children. If Ruby wants to act like a child, then Mama Kris will treat her like one. Mama Kris is gonna take little Ruby, snatch her up, bring her upstairs and put her in timeout. Kris is so sick and tired of everyone thinking they can walk all over each other! Kris is sick and tired of being stepped on and disrespected! She is the TBS Champion!

“So if you wanna call me out, I’m gonna take you out, and I will see you at All Out.” The Galaxy’s Greatest is all fired up, will she burn The Runaway down?


Keith Lee VS Zicky Dice!

The Limitless One is back in action, ready to finally break through to that next level in AEW. Will nothing hold him back as we approach All In and All Out? Or will he roll the Dice and lose?

The bell rings and fans rally up. Dice shows off those hips, but Keith has him stop. Keith conducts the choir as they sing “OH~ Bask in His Glory~!” Dice shakes his head, and he says he is outlandish! What’s Keith gonna do? Dice shoves Keith, says Collision is his show now, and dares Keith to bask in HIS glory. Keith CLOBBERS Dice! Keith drags Dice up, knuckle locks, but Dice fires off forearms! Dice hits a ROLLING ELBOW, and runs, but Keith POUNCES him!! Fans fire up as Dice flops around! Keith then waits for Dice to get up. Dice is punch drunk, swinging wild, but Keith pops him up! SPIRIT BOMB!! Cover, Keith wins!

Winner: Keith Lee, by pinfall

Dice got rolled, and Keith came out with the win! Will Keith finally hit the jackpot and have gold around his waist?


La Faccion Ingobernable has another video.

Last we saw, Rush had Jose help kidnap his own brother, Dralistico, and Perro Peligroso, Preston Vance! Now Rush’s faceless minions beat them down while they can’t defend themselves! Dralistico is furious but Vance is bloodied, so they keep pounding on him! They talk some smack on him, but Vance grins. And breaks free of the ropes! Vance fights but the biggest minion of all CHOKES him against a pillar! But Dralistico makes his move, and he busts the others up with a crowbar! Then BRICK for the big man! Big man stays standing, so Vance BUSTS him down with some plaster!

LFI mugs the big man and chokes him out with a chain! They fist bump, but what was the purpose of all this? And that’s when Jose walks in, applauding. The video says “To be continued…” Is this only the beginning of a new chapter for LFI?


Samoa Joe is here!

Fans fire up for the ROH World Television Champion as he makes his way out. Before Joe and CM Punk battle for the “Real” World Championship, Joe’s gonna be on commentary for this star studded main event! However, Joe gets a mic to address the crowd first. “My name is Samoa Joe, your ever-present King of Television. And sometimes, I’m amazed at how little the powers at be here in AEW think of me. Because this morning, I was informed that if tonight, I interfere in anyway in our star-studded multi-man main event, I would jeopardize my newly won opportunity this week at All In.” Fans boo but Joe says he took that to heart.

Joe is proactive. Instead of being in the back, he volunteered his expert services to commentary so he can be ringside where we can all keep our eyes on him. Fans cheer that! And despite the fact that CM Punk, that coward, dressed up “in a golden diaper” and struck Joe last week…! Joe “will remain a professional.” Understand that he is a man who is satisfied, who has gotten what he needs, who got the match that he wanted from CM Punk. So Sunday at All In, Joe will hand Punk the ass whipping he so desperately needs. Fans cheer as Joe takes his seat at commentary, will he keep his word with his prey so close at hand?


All In All-Star 8 Man Tag: Jay White, Swerve Strickland, Brian Cage & Luchasaurus w/ Christian Cage VS CM Punk, Darby Allin, Sting & ???

One way or another, all these men will be part of All In London card. The Switchblade will join Juice Robinson & Konosuke Takeshita against Kenny Omega, Kota Ibushi & Hangman Adam Page. The Mogul Embassy is joining forces with Captain Charisma and his Right Hand of Destruction against The Relentless Icons, Darby & Sting. And as we just heard from Samoa Joe, he and Punk battle to see who is truly the Best in the World. But wait, who is the wild card on Punk’s team? IT’S HOOK! Now that he’s going to London to fight Jack Perry, will the Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil be more than ready to go All In?

Collision returns as Jay White makes his entrance, bringing the full Bang Bang Gang with him, #Cardblade included. Next is Luchasaurus, Christian holding onto the TNT Championship for him, leaving the Mogul Embassy’s leader and Machine for last. Prince Nana still breaks it down to Swerve’s song, so this is a bit more than just 4v4 now. The teams sort out and Punk starts against Swerve. Fans rally up, Swerve and Punk circle, and they tie up.

Joe CLOBBERS Punk with the “real” world championship belt! Joe holds that belt up, will he take that from Punk one way or another in London? Will any of these men survive what’s coming?

My Thoughts:

A pretty good Collision, but mostly a lot of “just because” in-ring stuff. Though in this episode’s defense, being prerecorded on Wednesday after AEW already did Dynamite AND Rampage, because All In on Sunday is in another country, makes for a messy go-home show. And while a very good segment, Jack Perry’s “funeral” for the FTW Championship being moved to Saturday makes sense after the loss of Terry Funk and subsequent loss of Bray Wyatt. Jack Perry and the FTW belt in all those pictures was so stupid and yet so hilarious at the same time. And naturally, Hook made his return here. I guess the FTW Championship match under FTW Rules for the Zero Hour is fine, but I would’ve liked if this was on the All Out card so we could get one more week of build.

Great tag match from Dark Order VS Action & Darius, great win for Silver & Reynolds. But with all this time since Death Before Dishonor and them getting that new edge, Dark Order hasn’t gotten people to join them. That needs to happen like next week. Then these guys can start taking over AEW and ROH. Acclaimed had a great rap video, as always. Though the line about farts kinda took all the seriousness out of it, but hey, Acclaimed is probably still taking those trios titles. Caster, Bowens & Billy will make great trios champs, and if it’s the Dark Order that comes around after them, that should be a really good feud of AEW Homegrown talent.

Keith Lee of course crushes Zicky Dice, I really hope Keith gets in on something title related after All In and/or All Out. NXT and HHH showed faith in Keith’s abilities, Vince McMahon screwed things up on RawDown, so c’mon, AEW. Third time is the charm, give Keith a title in AEW. Great Six Man Tag of Cassidy, Penta & Kingston VS Kip and the Superbad Squad, and really good promos from everyone involved in the Stadium Stampede match. Eddie storming off to go after BCC & PNP was a good detail, and of course those five weren’t there. That video could’ve been recorded earlier and it was just a way to anger Eddie. No idea who wins the Stadium Stampede, but it’s gonna be wild either way.

Soho and Kris have really good promos, but as I said before, just a shame that they’re moving the TBS Championship story away from what was building between Kris, Willow, Mercedes & Diamante. Mercedes & Diamante still watching Willow VS Robyn was a good detail, and Willow got a good match and win against Robyn. Maybe it boils down to a Triple Threat #1 Contender’s match of Willow VS Mercedes VS Diamante, winner faces champ after we see Kris VS Soho at All Out. And good vignette for the Women’s World Championship, and I’m still torn on who wins. If it isn’t Saraya as new champ, I feel like Shida might as well retain. But now, with Soho possibly taking the TBS title from Kris, it’d be an interesting story to see Saraya & Soho holding onto gold and Storm with nothing to win.

Good squash win for Big Bill, and Starks whipping away on Vary is a good follow-up on what he did to Steamboat, even with his suspension done in just over a week. As I said last time, there’s a chance Starks & Bill stick together as a tag team, but I wouldn’t mind Starks bringing in more “clients” as a player-coach type of manager. That said, get Lee Moriarty in on this. Lee and Bill had a good combo going in ROH, why not give that some real screen time? Speaking of screen time, why have another promo vignette for Bucks and FTR? AEW has their “Countdown” special for that. Though, do they just assume no one’s gonna watch that? Seems like bad form to me.

Great 8 Man Tag main event, especially with Joe on commentary. And I wonder if the Heel team in this 8 Man has set the record for corner men. Nana, Christian, and the whole Bang Bang Gang for five people on the outside not even part of the match. A bit torn on Hook being the fourth member of the Face team. Obviously he’s part of All In now cuz he’s facing Jack Perry. And it’s not like anyone from The Elite was gonna join in since Punk’s on the team. I guess the fun of the surprise was taken away by how the segment with Jack and Hook was moved from Dynamite to Collision given real-life circumstances of Terry Funk’s passing. But hey, great spot for Hook, great win for the Faces, and then great chaotic brawl that really capped things off nicely.

Joe stands tall on Punk so Punk is retaining his “world title,” and I would think Hook wins back the FTW title just so Jack can’t try to destroy it again. Harder to get a read on the other matches, but that promo from Darby, Nick Wayne and AR Fox really leads me to imagine a worst case scenario where Nick Wayne betrays Darby because he can’t forgive Fox. And I get that, because Fox did some messed up stuff while with Swerve. If only All In and All Out weren’t just a week apart, we could’ve had so much more build on this story.

My Score: 8.7/10

Mitchell’s AEW Dynamite Results & Report! (7/17/24)




AEW is going big for this milestone Dynamite!

Dynamite has reached its 250TH episode, and it opens with Will Ospreay VS MJF for the AEW International Championship!


  • AEW International Championship: Will Ospreay VS MJF; MJF wins and becomes the new AEW International Champion.
  • AEW TBS Championship: Mercedes Mone VS Nyla Rose; Mone wins and retains the title.
  • Swerve Strickland w/ Prince Nana VS Kazuchika Okada; Swerve wins, by disqualification.


AEW International Championship: Will Ospreay VS MJF!

Like many of us, The Aerial Assassin despise the Wolf of Wrestling for how he disrespected and used Daniel Garcia just to send a message. But also like many, Ospreay at least acknowledges and respects that this form of Maxwell Jacob Friedman is his most dangerous. Will Ospreay be able to put down AEW’s Ultimate Scumbag? Or will even the #BillyGOAT not be on the level of the devil?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see who ignites episode 250!

The bell rings and the fans cheer while the two stare down. Ospreay gets the fans even more fired up, and then MJF bails out. The fans boo but MJF just hops the railing. MJF splashes fans with their own water! MJF then lounges on the barriers, offers a fist bump, but the fans just flip him off. So MJF rips a fan’s sign up and throws it back! MJF goes back to the ring, tells fans to shut up, and he approaches Ospreay. Only to dodge and strut, then swivel the hips. The fans boo but Ospreay smirks, this is the MJF he knew he was getting. They tie up, MJF wrenches to hammerlock, but Ospreay headlocks.

MJF powers up to wrench and WRING Ospreay, but Ospreay handsprings through, and copies the strut! Ospreay shows he can swivel hips, too! The fans cheer but MJF sarcastically says Ospreay’s clever. The two tie up, MJF headlocks, but the fans sing, “OSPRAEY~ OSPREAY OSPREAY OSPREAY~!” MJF is annoyed, Ospreay powers up and out, then things speed up. Ospreay hurdles then drops down to trip MJF up! MJF ducks the Hidden Blade to hit a headlock takeover! Ospreay headscissors, MJF kips free, and roles reverse as Ospreay headlocks for the takeover. MJF headscissors but Ospreay kips free.

MJF ducks the Penalty Kick, avoids the standing moonsault, then bobs ‘n’ weaves to avoid Ospreay’s punches and kicks. MJF shoves Ospreay, Ospreay springboards but MJF avoids that, too! MJF runs in, Ospreay dodges to handspring, but MJF gets under! Ospreay superhero lands, and the fans are thunderous while MJF is stunned! The fans cheer “A E DUB! A E DUB!” for making this the opener! MJF is annoyed, but he and Ospreay tie up. MJF says Ospreay pulled hair! The fans boo because of course MJF is lying. MJF and Ospreay reset, tie up, and again MJF claims hair pulling. But then MJF pulls hair!

MJF puts Ospreay on the ropes, the ref counts, and MJF lets off, to take a swing! Ospreay dodges and then LARIATS MJF up and out! The fans fire up and Ospreay builds speed, only for MJF to get away. MJF says not today, but then Ospreay just changes course and he FLIES out onto MJF! The fans fire up and high-five Ospreay before he puts MJF in. Ospreay HOTSHOTS MJF, runs and BOOTS, then he hits as BIG back suplex! Cover, TWO! Ospreay prepares the elbow and the fans fire up. Ospreay aims but MJF scrambles to the apron. The fans boo, Ospreay storms over, but MJF YANKS Ospreay into buckles!

MJF stomps a mudhole in, drags Ospreay up to whip and WRING him into the corner! Ospreay flounders and MJF soaks up the heat. Then he blows snot at the fans and mocks them! MJF goes back to Ospreay, clamps onto an arm, and the fans rally and duel as Ospreay endures. Ospreay fights up, throws body shots, then forearms. MJF throws Ospreay down by his hair! The fans boo but MJF just soaks it up. MJF says he didn’t do anything. Then he clamps on with a chinlock and grinds Ospreay down. Ospreay fights up to JAWBREAKER free! Ospreay runs but MJF kitchen sink knees! MJF hauls Ospreay up to back suplex, but Ospreay lands out!

Ospreay reels MJF in to back suplex, but MJF lands out! MJF back suplexes, Ospreay lands out, into a STUNNER! Cover, TWO! MJF’s annoyed his Osaka Street Cutter, or perhaps Long Island Street Cutter, didn’t end this, but he storms after Ospreay. Ospreay is on the apron, MJF reels him in, HEAT- NO! Ospreay shoves MJF away, but MJF slingshots Ospreay into another STUNNER! Cover, TWO!! Ospreay survives and MJF is frustrated. The fans rally for Ospreay as he goes to the apron, but MJF storms over. MJF drags Ospreay in again, tries but Ospreay again denies him the Heatseeker! So MJF tries the slingshot, but Ospreay stops that!

Ospreay GAMANGIRIS MJF away, goes up a corner, and PIP PIP CHEERIO! Both men are down and the fans fire up! Ospreay rises but so does MJF. Ospreay fires haymakers on MJF first, then whips. MJF reverses but Ospreay CLOBBERS him! MJF bails out but Ospreay builds speed! Ospreay handsprings to SASUKE SPECIAL! The fans are thunderous but Ospreay takes a moment to check his ribs and catch his breath. Ospreay storms up on MJF, puts him in the ring, then goes up a corner. The fans fire up for the MOONSAULT, but MJF moves! Ospreay lands out, MOONSAULTS again, but MJF dodges again!

But the STANDING SHOOTING STAR hits! Cover, TWO! So Ospreay goes up and up to SKY TWISTER! Cover, TWO!! MJF survives the onslaught but Ospreay loads up that elbow! “This is Awesome!” as Ospreay aims again. MJF slowly rises, Ospreay runs up, but MJF bails out again! The fans continue to boo but Ospreay PLANCHAS! Down goes MJF and Ospreay high-fives more fans. And then Ospreay confiscates the timekeeper’s table! The fans are thunderous as Ospreay brings the furniture over to ringside. MJF hurries away into the ring now! Ospreay pursues as we see the fear on MJF’s face.

Ospreay CHOPS MJF in the corner! Ospreay stands MJF up to CHOP him again! The fans “WOO~” and Ospreay runs, but MJF pops him up to SUPERKICK him! MJF goes up, but Ospreay avoids the Panama City/Long Island Sunrise, but then MJF knees low! MJF reels Ospreay in but Ospreay powers out. Ospreay whips MJF to the corner, MJF goes up and over, but then MJF’s knee jams! Ospreay grabs that leg but it was a trap! MJF steps over and hits as STUFF PILEDRIVER!! Cover, TWO!! Ospreay survives and both men are down again. The fans rally up while both men stir, and MJF rises first.

MJF shows off that the leg is just fine, then does the Daniel Garcia dance just to mock him. MJF then drops an elbow on Ospreay’s leg. Ospreay CLUBS at MJF but MJF keeps the toehold. Ospreay fishhooks MJF and MJF lets go. Ospreay CHOPS, and CHOPS, then runs, but into a back drop! MJF leans on the ropes while he catches his breath, and the fans rally again. MJF storms back over, KNEES the leg, then smirks. MJF steps through, ties the legs up, and has the FIGURE FOUR! The fans “WOO~,” even as MJF SLAPS Ospreay! And SLAPS him! MJF thrashes the hold, but Ospreay endures. Ospreay’s shoulders are down, TWO as he sits back up!

Ospreay pries at the leglock, and the fans rally up as he works to turn things over. MJF fights that back, thrashes some more, but Ospreay grits his teeth. The fans rally harder and harder as Ospreay fights his way over, and he turns the hold onto MJF! MJF endures now, reaches out while shouting in pain, and he flails in order to turn things back onto Ospreay! The fans boo but Ospreay endures again. Ospreay drags MJF along, reaches out, and has the ROPEBREAK! The ref counts but MJF lets go at 4. MJF is frustrated but then he drags Ospreay up and to a corner. MJF CHOPS, takes a moment, then CHOPS again!

MJF wrenches, whips, but Ospreay can’t even make it all the way! MJF smirks while the ref checks Ospreay. Ospreay shakes out the leg, refusing to admit defeat. MJF storms over, stands Ospreay up, and CHOPS! Ospreay hobbles, so MJF CLAWS Ospreay’s back! MJF whips, Ospreay barely makes it to ropes! MJF wants after Ospreay like a shark with blood in the water, but Ospreay sits on the apron. MJF tells off the fans cheering Ospreay, but Ospreay is somehow still in this. So MJF CLAWS Ospreay’s face! The fans boo but MJF soaks it up. Ospreay throws body shots and haymakers! Ospreay CHOPS and MJF wobbles!

Ospreay CHOPS again, MJF flails more. Ospreay snarls, runs, but MJF CHOP BLOCKS the legs! MJF covers, TWO! MJF frowns but he stomps Ospreay’s leg. MJF then stands Ospreay up to CLUB him on the neck! Ospreay hobbles, so MJF CLAWS his back! Ospreay fires big forearms! Then he fires Kawada Kicks! MJF wobbles, into a CHOP! MJF goes to ropes, Ospreay scoops him, but MJF CLAWS the eyes again! The ref reprimands and counts, MJF stops at 4. The fans boo but MJF whips. Ospreay ducks ‘n’ dodges, and DOUBLE LARIATS take both men down! The fans fire up again while Ospreay again clutches the leg.

Ospreay rises, but MJF KNEES the knee! Then MJF calls his shot! MJF suplexes, but STUN DOG MILLIONAIRE hits first! MJF wobbles around, Ospreay calls his shot now! Springboard, OSCUTTER!! But MJF flops all the way to ropes! Ospreay has to crawl his way over, and MJF flops to the floor! MJF’s ring awareness is strong but Ospreay pursues. Ospreay drags MJF up to put him in the ring, and then onto the apron. Ospreay uses a corner to go up and APRON OSCUTTER FLOP as MJF steps back! Ospreay writhes, signaling to his arm, and the ref hurries to check. MJF may have gotten lucky here, as Dynamite goes picture in picture.

The ref has Ospreay go around the way but MJF is in pursuit! MJF shows no mercy as he grabs that bad arm, and RAMS Ospreay into steel steps! MJF stands on the steps to soak up all the heat, as well as talk some trash on Ospreay. It’s certainly in the vain of MJF is who AEW needs, not Ospreay. MJF drags Ospreay up and into the ring, then takes his time to taunt fans over the table. He flips the fans off, he isn’t gonna do what they want. MJF then goes back to Ospreay, grabs the bad arm, and he stands on it, to then STOMP it! MJF soaks up more heat as he paces around Ospreay, then clamps onto the arm again.

Ospreay endures the mounted armlock, and he fights to his feet. Now Ospreay pulls hair, but MJF throws Ospreay down by the arm. MJF grinds that shoulder but Ospreay still endures. The fans rally as Ospreay fights, stands up, and throws body shots. Dynamite returns to single picture as Ospreay ROCKS MJF with forearms. Ospreay whips, MJF reverses but Ospreay handsprings, only for MJF to KICK the bad arm! Ospreay clutches the elbow, but MJF hauls him up! Double underhooks, for a SHOULDER BUSTER! And then it’s back to the armlock! Ospreay rolls through, but MJF ducks the roundhouse to pump handle!

MJF adds a half nelson, MADE IN JAPAN! Or perhaps, Made in Long Island? Cover, TWO!! Ospreay knows that move from his rivalry with Shingo Takagi. The fans rally while both men are down again, “This is Awesome!” Ospreay and MJF slowly rise, MJF storms over, and he whips. Ospreay holds ropes to stop that, so MJF CLUBS the arm! MJF makes the pecs dance, whips again, but Ospreay reverses. Ospreay then dodges MJF to handspring and NEURALIZER KICK! Both men are down again and the fans stay fired up!

MJF survives and the fans can’t believe it! The fans hope they “FIGHT FOREVER!” but there’s still more show that has to happen! MJF crawls to the apron, Ospreay stalks him. MJF flops to the floor, but he’s near that table… Ospreay goes to the floor and brings MJF up.

MJF throat chops Ospreay! MJF runs away into the crowd, but Ospreay pursues! Ospreay fires hands on MJF even as MJF goes up the bleachers. Ospreay grabs MJF, bends him against railing, and offers free shots. A little girl starts punching MJF in the ribs! MJF flips her family off but Ospreay CLUBS away on MJF! Ospreay fist bumps the girl and drags MJF back up. Ospreay ROCKS MJF with a right and follows him down the stairs. Ospreay CHOPS MJF to keep him moving, but MJF takes a detour into the seats. So Ospreay makes MJF take a seat and punches down hands! The fans count along, Ospreay winds up, and hits TEN!

MJF flounders around, Ospreay shows that there’s one guy still wearing an MJF Kangaroo Kick shirt, and then pursues MJF. MJF pokes Ospreay right in the eyes! MJF CLUBS Ospreay, but Ospreay kicks MJF! Ospreay SMACKS MJF off the trash can! The fans fire up and Ospreay DUMPS MJF into the trash can! MJF kicks and flails but Ospreay BOOTS the can! MJF falls out, stumbles away, and Ospreay pursues. They finally return to ringside, and Ospreay refreshes the count that was never happening anyway. Ospreay then drags MJF over to the table, punches him onto it, then goes up the steel steps.

Ospreay then goes up the corner and fans are thunderous already! Ospreay aims, but MJF hurries off the table. The fans boo and Ospreay sighs, but Ospreay hops down to go after MJF. But MJF gut wrenches! Ospreay victory rolls, TWO! MJF has the victory roll, TWO! Ospreay has it, TWO! MJF is up, Ospreay gets around and hops on, POISON-RANA! MJF flounders to a corner, Ospreay runs up, but MJF pops him up! Another SUPERKICK as Ospreay is upside-down! MJF goes up, LONG ISLAND SUNRISE!! Cover, TWO!?! The fans are electric as Ospreay survives another hard shot! Ospreay then goes to the apron and then the floor.

MJF pursues, and we return to the table. MJF puts Ospreay on the table and then goes up the apron. The fans rally as MJF actually climbs the corner. MJF reaches the top, but then Ospreay slips off the table! The fans still boo, they want that table to see some action. MJF hops down, talks smack on Ospreay, then CHOPS him. MJF BITES Ospreay’s arm! The fans boo and tell MJF he’s sick! The ref counts, MJF lets off, but he then ROCKS Ospreay with a haymaker. MJF again mocks Daniel Garcia, even asking if Garcia has feeling in his arms again. MJF then whips Ospreay hard into railing! Ospreay almost ends up in the front row!

MJF makes Ospreay take a seat, and he CLAWS at Ospreay’s face! MJF refreshes the ring count, then runs in at Ospreay, to BOOT Ospreay against railing! MJF hops up to soak up more heat, then he refreshes with some water. That he then splashes at fans. MJF stalks Ospreay back to the table, refreshes the count, and then asks, “Ospreay who?” MJF stands Ospreay up to whip, but Ospreay goes up onto the railing, to OSCUTTER to the floor! The fans fire up again while both men are down! Ospreay clutches the bad leg and the bad arm, but he manages to rise up and put MJF in. Ospreay then swings, but into MJF’s dragon sleeper!

But Ospreay flips things around! The fans cheer, as Ospreay hits CROSS RHODES!! Cover, TWO!!! MJF survives, but Ospreay storms after him in a corner. MJF uses the ref as a shield, then he pokes Ospreay in the eyes! MJF goes up to DOUBLE STOMP the bad arm! MJF reels Ospreay in, hammerlock and lift, DDT!! Cover, TWO!!! Ospreay survives and the fans continue to rally behind him. MJF is frustrated but he pursues Ospreay to the apron. MJF drags Ospreay through ropes, and HEAT- NO! Ospreay throws MJF away, MJF’s leg “jams,” and Ospreay takes aim. Ospreay springboards but MJF hits ropes to trip him up!

Ospreay gets stuck up there, MJF goes up to LEAPING LARIAT!! Cover, TWO?!? MJF is beside himself as Ospreay survives again! MJF stalks Ospreay to the apron, drags him up, and gut wrenches! The fans freak out but Ospreay flails and kicks! Ospreay turns things around onto MJF, but MJF KICKS Ospreay! MJF then suplexes, but Ospreay slips free! Ospreay waistlocks but the arm won’t let him lift! So Ospreay SUPERKICKS MJF instead! MJF wobbles, Ospreay reels him in, and tucks him for an APRON STYLES CLASH!!! Both men fall to the floor and Little Rock is losing its collective mind right now!

Ospreay drags MJF up and into the ring, covers, TWO!!!! MJF survives but Ospreay is too tired to be upset. Ospreay just rises up, brings MJF to his feet, and reels him in. Even with one arm, Ospreay hits a LAST RIDE!! Cover, TWO!! MJF reminds us why he was once the longest reigning AEW World Champion while Dynamite goes back to picture in picture.

Ospreay shakes out the arms, but Doc Sampson is called over to check. Doc checks that arm, from lifting to turning. Then Doc checks with Ospreay if he wants to do “that,” and Ospreay says go for it. Doc YANKS Ospreay’s arm to pop it back in place! Ospreay clutches the arm again but it seems that did the trick. Ospreay has the fans fired up again, and he drags MJF up for Kawada Kicks! Ospreay stands over MJF while Dynamite goes to break.

Dynamite 250 returns and Ospreay calls his shot. MJF rises, and he spins Ospreay around to BITE Ospreay’s face! The fans boo, MJF runs, but Ospreay HIDDEN BLADES!! Cover, TWO!!! MJF survives a shot to the face but Ospreay roars! The fans are thunderous as MJF sits up, into a BUZZSAW! MULE KICK! OSC- NO, MJF stops the cutter to gut wrench, and TOMBSTONE!! Cover, TWO?!?! Ospreay survives again and the fans again cheer “A E DUB! A E DUB!” for giving us this instant classic. MJF snarls, and he uses wrist tape to CHOKE Ospreay! The ref reprimands, MJF lets off, and MJF goes to the corner with Ospreay.

MJF wrenches the bad arm, whips him hard into the corner, and Ospreay falls. The fans boo but MJF grins as he rises up. MJF storms over to Ospreay, stands him up and wrenches to an ELBOW BREAKER! MJF whips again, and harder! Ospreay falls back, MJF flexes, but the fans boo. MJF mocks the United Empire crown then says shove it. MJF drags Ospreay up, whips him corner to corner again, but Ospreay reveres! MJF tumbles up, comes back, and Ospreay CHOPS! And CHOPS! But MJF blocks one again to WRING the arm again! Ospreay writhes, MJF leans on ropes, and then MJF runs in. Ospreay DUMPS MJF out hard!

The fans fire up and Ospreay goes to the apron, only for MJF to YANK him down! MJF puts Ospreay in the ring and says that’s why he’s the smartest wrestler in AEW. But not the wisest as Ospreay DIVING HIDDEN BLADES MJF!! Both men fall to the floor and the fans are thunderous again! Ospreay rises, a ring count starts, and fans count along. We hit 5 of 10, Ospreay puts MJF in at 6. Ospreay goes up the corner, and he BLINDSIDE CHEERIOS! Cover, TWO!! MJF survives again but Ospreay doesn’t get frustrated. Ospreay goes to the apron and climbs up the corner, but MJF again hits ropes! Ospreay lands bad on the corner this time!

MJF climbs up, throws hands, then goes to the very top. SUPER- NO! Ospreay stops the Steiner with one good arm! The fans fire up as he tucks MJF in, for a SUPER STYLES CLASH!! But Ospreay struggles to turn MJF over for the cover! ROPEBREAK!! Ospreay is frustrated now but there’s nothing he can do about that. Ospreay drags MJF up but MJF HOTSHOTS the arm! MJF reels Ospreay in, for an APRON HEATSEEKER!! Ospreay flops to the floor, and MJF looks at the table…! MJF puts Ospreay on the table, hurries back to the corner, and MJF climbs! The fans are going nuts already as MJF SUPER MACHO ELBOWS THROUGH THE TABLE!!!

The fans lose their minds all over again as MJF goes for broke! The ref checks both men, and they’re somehow okay to continue! “This is Awesome!” as we once again go picture in picture.

MJF flounders his way back to ringside and drags himself in. But Champion’s Advantage won’t let him win the title like this! Ospreay is still on the outside as we pass 5 of 10, and he starts to stir around 7. MJF then springs out after Ospreay to get him back in! Seems MJF was just resting, and he shouts about something, probably about how he’s better. MJF stands, paces around, then stomps Ospreay’s legs, then Dynamite goes to break.

Dynamite 250 returns again, and MJF has Ospreay in a Cobra Twist. MJF sneakily grabs the ropes to add on leverage! The ref looks but MJF lets go in time. Ospreay still endures, and MJF digs a knuckle into the ribs. MJF then again sneaks a grab at the ropes! The ref gets closer to catching him but the fans tell on MJF! MJF tells them all to shut up! MJF still grabs for ropes, but the ref sees it this time! MJF says he’s not doing nothing! The ref KICKS that arm! Ospreay then hip tosses free! Both men are down and the fans fire up again!

The fans sing for Ospreay as he crawls to a corner. MJF sits up then rises up to soak up heat. MJF hits the kangaroo stance?! The fans are torn, surely he isn’t serious. But then MJF runs up, KANGAROO- NO! Ospreay catches MJF!

Ospreay CATAPULTS MJF, but MJF lands safe on the corner! Only for Ospreay to tuck him in and CHEEKY NANDOS! MJF is still stuck so Ospreay goes up after him, for a SUPER POISON RANA! MJF lands out?! MJF shows he can do what Ospreay does and the fans lose their minds! LARIAT in the corner, then MJF hoists Ospreay up top. MJF goes up and up and smirks, gives some thrusts, then SUPER STEINERS! Ospreay lands out!! Ospreay shows MJF how it’s really done and MJF is in disbelief! Both men turn around, MJF swings but Ospreay goes Matrix! MJF returns the favor to dodge Ospreay!

Little Rock gives a standing ovation for this AEW Match of the Year contender! MJF crawls to a corner, Ospreay pursues. Ospreay puts MJF up top, ROCKS him, but has to slap some fire into himself. Ospreay goes up top, but MJF fires body shots!

MJF gut wrenches Ospreay, but Ospreay kicks free! Ospreay then slingshots back up, to SUPER OSCUTTER!! And HIDDEN BLADE!!! Cover, TWO?!?!? Ospreay can’t believe it and now he’s mad! Ospreay throws off the elbow pad as Little Rock is erupting! MJF sits up, but DUCKS the Hidden Blade! Ospreay tumbles but MJF is also down, too tired to sit back up. Ospreay crawls his way back over, sits MJF up, but MJF SPITS at him!! Ospreay gets REALLY mad now! MJF panics, Ospreay HEADBUTTS him! Ospreay reels MJF in, the fans say do it, and Ospreay says yes! Underhooks, one minute warning, but Ospreay isn’t sure which Storm Attack to use!

Ospreay hauls MJF up, to STORM…! NO, Ospreay stops short of the driver! They fans boo, they want him to end MJF but Ospreay says he’s not like that anymore. Ospreay drags MJF up , MJF SHOVES Ospreay into the ref!! The ref goes down, we’re under 20 seconds! Ospreay hurries over to MJF, DYNAMITE DIAMOND RING PUNCH!!! Cover, MJF WINS!!!!

Winner: MJF, by pinfall (NEW AEW International Champion)

There was literally two seconds left, but MJF pulls it off!! The Wolf of Wrestling proves he’s still just a lowdown dirty snake, but he’s the snake that stole the gold from the #BillyGOAT. Medics help both guys get icepacks, water and oxygen, and MJF rises like a zombie to celebrate himself. The Scumbag may have survived The Aerial Assassin, but will he be ready to go All In against The Bastard?


Backstage interview Mark Briscoe & The Acclaimed.

Arkady Aura is with the Sussex County Chicken, as well as Max Caster & Anthony Bowens, and says they asked for this time to talk with each other. Caster says that’s right, because they know Mr. Briscoe is on Team AEW for Blood & Guts. They also know that Team AEW needs a couple more partners, and the only way Mark gets “The Best Wrestler Alive” on his side is when Caster & Bowens join the team together. Plus, The Acclaimed just beat The Bucks a couple weeks ago, they have their number, this is a no brainer! Bowens says that’s right! And they’re also this close to becoming AEW World Tag Team Champions once again, they want a piece of The Bucks’ asses!

Plus, when you think AEW, you think The Acclaimed, because EVERYONE loves The Acclaimed! So they want in! Mark says that’s right! They had his back a couple weeks ago, so as far as he’s concerned, The Acclaimed is in, baby! But Mark’s not the only man calling the shots on this, if you understand what he’s saying. In steps AEW World Champion, Swerve Strickland. Swerve says listen! They’ve been through their fair share of squabbles, so he knows what Acclaimed is all about. Swerve’s also been in battles with The Briscoes, so he knows Dem Boys are real tough people. There is nobody better to go to war with than those you’ve battled against.

Therefore, “y’all ready to get violent?” The Acclaimed say hell yeah! Hands in, and Mark warns The Elite that Team AEW is coming for them! LET’S GO, BABY!! Bowens & Caster follow Briscoe out, Swerve nods, will this team be ready to rip apart The Elite? Will Swerve be ready for The Rainmaker later on tonight in the main event? Or will Kazuchika Okada rain on Swerve’s House and wash it away?


“Big Bill” Morrissey is in the ring.

The Redwood introduces to the “seeds, saplings, roots and most importantly, branches,” the Learning Tree, Chris Jericho! The “For The World” Champion is accompanied by “Bad Apple” Bryan Keith as he makes his way out here, waving to Little Rock. The fans boo but Jericho still smiles. “Hi, guys~! Y’know, Little Rock, you need to take a few lessons from The Learning Tree. This city is such a high-crime, violent city, 1,533 crimes for ever 100,000 people, you can do better than that! But let’s talk about Dynamite 250 for AEW, I was on the very first Dynamite, and I’ve been on almost every single one since.

“And the ones that I missed, the Branches were so angry, cards and letters filed in, so I made a promise, I’m never gonna miss another Dynamite again.” The fans boo but Jericho says he’ll be on every one, even until episode 500! It’s like he’s said: When you listen to The Learning Tree, good things happen. And when you don’t, people get hurt, dammit! This isn’t right! Jericho is begging us all to listen to him! Look to those who haven’t. Shibata’s arm, Hook getting that fireball to his face, that’s horrible. And then Samoa Joe is literally driven through a wall because he wasn’t listening to The Learning Tree!

Jericho is begging us, this has to stop! People are getting hurt! At this point, everyone should realize they need to listen to Jericho. Surely everyone knows the teachings of Jericho are so important. Who would be crazy enough not to listen? Who would be psychotic enough not to use the teachings of Jericho? Who would be maniacal enough to- IS THAT MINORU SUZUKI!? Jericho is very worried seeing the Meanest Man in the World returning here to AEW! Suzuki has a paper in his hands, but what could it be? Suzuki goes to the ring and fans get fired up. Suzuki waits, and he steps in at “KAZE NI NARE~!”

Suzuki stares Jericho down while the fans cheer him on. Suzuki looks at the FTW Championship, then he snatches Jericho’s mic. “Next week…” Suzuki holds up the paper, Keith snatches it, and Keith reads it for Jericho. This is an official order from AEW management. The Redwood AND Bad Apple are banned from ringside for Jericho VS Suzuki, an FTW Championship match! Suzuki then HEADBUTTS Jericho down! Bill goes to help Jericho and Keith backs up. Suzuki grins and waves, “Bye, guys~!” Jericho looks to be fearing for his life now that he knows there is someone crazy enough to ignore his teachings. Will the King of Pancrase cut down The Learning Tree?


The Elite speak.

Nicholas asks Matthew and Okada if they heard all that. The Elite heard what The Acclaimed, Mark Briscoe and Swerve Strickland had to say, and it is ridiculous! What pisses them off even more is that The Acclaimed think they’re just gonna become two-time AEW Tag Team Champions. Not on their watch! Matt says what those guys need is a reminder about just who the hecc they are! This is THE Elite, the greatest team in AEW. And after next week, they’ll have all the gold and all the power! Nick points out it won’t be all the gold. Swerve is still AEW World Champion. Well, Matt says after what they do to Swerve, that title might just end up vacated.

Because see, they’re dealing with the most dangerous people in the business. They’re going up against The Young Bucks, the greatest tag team ever. They’re dealing with the Continental Champion, The Rainmaker, Kazuchika Okada. They’re dealing with the unpredictable Scapegoat, the TNT Champion, Jack Perry. And Matt’s favorite part: making his return to The Elite, Hangman Adam Page! And oh, in steps the TBS Champion, Mercedes Mone! The CEO says hi to the EVPs, and she thanks them for banning Britt Baker from even being backstage tonight so that she can’t ruin Dynamite 250 for them.

Matt says let’s just say there’s no drama coming from The DMD to the CEO, via the EVPs. Okada whispers something to Matt and Matt asks if Mone will do the dance for them. Oh, her CEO shuffle? Of course! C E O! C E O! Ok, got to go~! Mone heads out, Okada wipes himself down. He claims it’s just really hot back here. Matt & Nick say okay, sure. But will The CEO still be golden like The Elite? Or will she end up the Native Beast’s next meal?


AEW TBS Championship: Mercedes Mone VS Nyla Rose!

Well, as we just heard, there will be no Britt Baker anywhere tonight because that is how bad she got under The CEO’s skin. Mone even made sure this Open Challenge would not allow Britt to answer it, so in steps a different former AEW Women’s World Champion. Will Mone find there are threats all over the AEW roster? Or will she still be making that double champion type bank?

The introductions are made, the teal title is raised, and we see who is truly the Face of TBS!

The bell rings and the two circle. The fans rally and duel, the two tie up, and Mone tries but she can’t push Nyla back at all! Nyla puts Mone in a corner, Mone goes up the ropes, but the ref counts. Nyla lets off but Mone scuffs her. Nyla is annoyed, but she mocks Mone’s dance. Nyla runs up, Mone leaps over, but then Nyla runs up again. Mone gets around, waistlocks, but Nyla THROWS her away! The fans rally, Nyla storms up but Mone drop toeholds her onto ropes! Mone CLUBS and stomps away on Nyla. Mone drags Nyla up to stomp into a corner, but the ref counts. Mone digs her boots in, but lets off at 4.

Mone backs off to then storm back up and drag Nyla up. Mone talks trash, but Nyla reels her in! Nyla suplexes, and she holds Mone up, does a squat or two, but Mone slips free! Mone CLUBS Nyla, runs, but Nyla scoops her! Nyla stops the tilt-o-whirl, and shouts, “Have you lost your mind?!” Nyla suplexes to hang Mone out to dry! Nyla KNEES Mone, goes to the corner and climbs, and the fans fire up for the GUILLOTINE KNEE DROP! Nyla drags Money to the cover, TWO!! Mone survives and Nyla is frustrated, but Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Nyla drags Mone up, ELBOWS her down, then she drags Mone into a backbreaker rack across her knee! Mone endures, even as Nyla pushes her down! Mone fights free with kicks, then fires forearms. Nyla ROCKS Mone right back! Nyla then torture racks Mone to thrash her around! Mone endures, slips down, but Nyla blocks the arm-drag! Nyla whips Mone into the corner, then runs in, only for Mone to move! Nyla POSTS herself, then Mone goes to the apron. Mone BOOTS Nyla into the post! Nyla falls back, Mone soaks up the cheers and jeers, then she sits Nyla down. METEORA! Mone drags Nyla to a cover, TWO!

Mone is upset so she rains down fists! The ref reprimands, Mone lets off to swagger around. Mone stalks Nyla, stomps her around, then bumps her off buckles. Mone stands Nyla up for forearm after forearm, then she climbs up to rain down fists! Mone goes to nine, soaks up the cheers and jeers, but Nyla brings Mone off the corner! Mone RANAS Nyla away, hurries to run, and she METEORAS again! Cover, TWO! Mone is frustrated but Nyla’s a former champion for a reason. Mone drags Nyla up, and clamps on with a COBRA TWIST! Nyla endures, even as Mone puts on the pressure. Mone ELBOWS Nyla in the ribs, but Nyla powers out with a hip toss!

Mone stands, blocks a boot and KNEES Nyla back. Mone runs, slips around, and has a SLEEPER! Dynamite 250 returns to single picture while Nyla starts to fade! The fans rally, Nyla fights up, and she swings Mone around into a facelock! Nyla snap suplexes Money away! The fans fire up while Mone flounders to a corner. Nyla snarls, rises up, and runs in to back body block! And then LARIAT! Mone staggers back up, Nyla runs in at the corner and SPLASHES! Mone sits down, Nyla fires up and Little Rock is with her! CANNONBALL! Nyla drags Mone to a cover, TWO!! Mone survives, showing why she’s been champion all over the world.

Nyla snarls, and she goes up the corner. Mone stands to kick the leg! Nyla falls, Mone goes up and up to VADER BOMB! Nyla sputters, Mone gets moving, BOOT WASH! Mone pushes Nyla, goes up the corner, and she METEORAS again! Cover, TWO!! Nyla survives and Mone can’t believe it! Mone drags Nyla up, turns her, but Nyla’s too big to Gory Especial! Nyla RAMS Mone into the corner, the fans duel, but Nyla puts Mone up top. Nyla then climbs up to have Mone’s arm. But Mone fires elbows on Nyla! Mone adjusts position, and SUPER BULLDOGS! Mone then brings out a glove, all to mock Britt!

Mone puts on her glove, spells out “C! E! O!” RINGS OF SATURN, and then the LOCKJAW!! Nyla BITES Mone’s fingers!! That’s what Mone gets! But then DRIBBLES Nyla’s face off the mat, and puts on the STATEMENT MAKER! Nyla taps, Mone wins!

Winner: Mercedes Mone, by submission (still AEW TBS Champion)

Mone may not be able to do it like The DMD, but she still wins out and holds up both belts. Mone then spots a fan with a sign, “DMD > CEO,” and she snatches that sign! Mone RIPS the sign up, and the fan wearing the Sting mask is upset. That fan pie faces Mone!? Because surprise! It’s BRITT BAKER!! The DMD suck into the show and The CEO is running for her life!! Security surrounds Mone to shield her from Britt! The guards then swarm Britt, and Mone is safe, for now. Will Britt have her Wembley Stadium moment with Mone whether Mone likes it or not?


Jack Perry speaks.

The Scapegoat flips a coin, then tells Darby Allin, “You wanted to get my attention? Well, you’ve got it now. All you had to do was ask. Did you really have to go and hurt Brandon Cutler? Maybe what I mean to say is, do you think I give a s*it about Brandon Cutler?” He is standing OVER Brandon! And then THROWS him through a door! Jack SMACKS Brandon off a boiler, then tells Darby to come find Jack tonight. Then Jack will show Darby what real sacrifice looks like. Will The Relentless One get that fight with the TNT Champion after all?


Toni Storm is here!

The Leading Lady is back so soon after how brutally Mariah May betrayed her? Wait, no… That’s Mariah May taking her cosplay to a new level. The understudy is now portraying the part of AEW Women’s World Champion as she menacingly makes her way down to the ring. The fans boo the protege for how she did Toni Storm dirty, but Mariah grabs a mic for herself. The fans chant for Toni but Mariah sighs. “Let’s be honest. You all saw it coming. Everybody saw it coming, except Toni Storm.” The fans boo but Mariah says that woman is so desperate for the spotlight, she didn’t realize she was giving it all away.

“The question shouldn’t be ‘why,’ the question should be, ‘Mariah, what took you so long?’ Honestly, I didn’t think it would last this long either. But it was so… easy! And I was having so much fun stringing her along, I just wanted to see how far it would go. But then, I saw Wembley. And I thought, ‘Why take the old horse out back when I can kill it in front of as many people as possible?” The fans boo more but Mariah says she’s been Toni Storm, and now she can be so much more! Fans chant “We Want Toni!” and Mariah smirks. Mariah tells Toni not to worry, she still loves her. In fact, she’s never loved her more than when Toni was on her knees, screaming and crying Mariah’s name. “That was your greatest performance.”

As for Mariah’s greatest performance, that will be at All In! The fans boo more but Mariah says now, AEW is All About Mariah! Mariah then lies back on the mat to revel in it just like Toni would. But will Toni make sure Mariah suffers far worse than what she gave Toni?


AEW shares post show footage from Collision.

The Bang Bang Gang returned backstage but they’re asked about being stripped of the Unified World Trios Championships. Juice said hold on, they ain’t been stripped of nothing. Whoever wants these belts will have to pry them out of their cold, dead hands! But then Christopher Daniels and a couple refs appear backstage, and the Fallen Angel knows it isn’t the most popular decision, nor is it fair to the champs, but that’s the rules of AEW. Austin says he isn’t taking these belts! Daniels says it’s either that or they’re suspended and they don’t get a chance to fight for them against The Patriarchy.

Colten says fine, take ’em. Take all nine belts! Daniels gathers them up and Austin tells Christian Cage that they are not scared of a guy with a daddy fetish, some TikTok kid, a stepmom straight outta Brazzers, and a giant lizard! Juice says what will happen is The Collision Cowboys come home, and they come home with their little hardware homies! And if you’re not down with that, they’ve got two words for ya: GUNS UP! Will Rock Hard Robinson, Fully Cocked Colten, and… Austin make sure Captain Charisma and his “sons” never touch the gold? Or can no one stop The Patriarchy from taking over AEW?


Swerve Strickland w/ Prince Nana VS Kazuchika Okada!

It is a Champion VS Champion showdown to close this milestone episode, but no titles are on the line. However, Blood & Guts is just next week, and each side is looking for momentum. Will Little Rock belong to Swerve’s House? Or will The Rainmaker prove he’s the top champion in AEW?

But then Jack Perry shows up to CLOBBER Caster! But then here comes Mark Briscoe! Chicken DECKS Matt, DECKS Jack, and DECKS Nick! Team AEW stands tall together, but Jack comes back for more!

Jack RAMS Darby into railing, Mark returns to help Darby! Security finally separates the factions, which is just fine by The Bucks! But will nothing stop Team AEW from destroying this corrupt Elite once and for all?

My Thoughts:

Now this was an awesome episode of Dynamite. They only advertised three matches, and it turns out that’s all we needed. Ospreay VS MJF was made the opener so they could just go off and give us almost an hour of their best stuff. It kinda makes some PPV matches feel lesser now, but hey, a match of the year candidate is still a match of the year candidate, no matter if it’s TV or PPV. MJF winning out surprised me, but he did cheat so that protects Ospreay. I was hoping for Ospreay VS Pac at All In, but I suppose “The Scumbag VS The Bastard” makes for some fun build. And with how much MJF was taunting Garcia, this has to mean Garcia shows up at All In to go after MJF.

TV Time with Jericho was properly short because we can’t actually drag the show to a screeching halt after how awesome Ospreay VS MJF was. As Jericho started listing qualities like “crazy” and “maniacal,” I just felt Suzuki showing up. Suzuki getting his FTW Championship match with Jericho next week is great, but I’m still thinking Jericho retains. Now, while Keith & Bill are banned from ringside, nothing is stopping Hook from showing up. Hook could go after Jericho after he retains, and that sets up Jericho VS Hook for All In. Which would be interesting because that makes it back to back All In shows for Hook and this FTW Championship.

Good promo from The Bang Bang Gang with Daniels, but like, so filler. Who needed to see them hand over the belts? Or rather, why couldn’t they have figured out to do that during Collision? Very good promo from Mariah May where she completes her transformation into Toni Storm’s replacement. She even phrased it “All About Mariah” to nod how this has been All About Eve the movie, in wrestling form. The fans kept going “What?” just cuz she was taking things slowly, which is rude, but I do feel she could’ve been faster about it. She was definitely going for something with her pacing, but maybe she was also just filling for a little more time. Toni will surely have a response next week or something, though.

Very good promo from Acclaimed with Mark Briscoe and Swerve to establish the Acclaimed joining Team AEW, and very good response promo from The Elite to call them out on it. Though, what a weird detail for Okada to be a Mone simp. He’s married for crying out loud! But that aside, Mone is still tangentially a part of The Elite, and she had a very good match with Nyla tonight. Mone of course found the way to win, but I do appreciate Britt gives us a Sting shoutout by wearing the Sting mask before revealing she was here. Mone running scared was pretty funny, and yeah duh, this match is happening at All In.

In relation, very good promo from Jack Perry, even if poor Brandon had to get beat up again. Jack calling Darby out was good foreshadowing for Darby’s own Sting tribute, and I figured last week that Darby Allin was going to be Team AEW for Blood & Guts. Great main event from Swerve VS Okada that The Bucks of course had to “ruin” to save Okada from a legit loss. At the same time, this keeps either champion from owing the other a title match so close to All In. Great brawl to give us the full 5v5, Blood & Guts is going to be some wild stuff, and it can definitely go either with so many champions involved this time. However, as Mark Briscoe is the only one whose rivalry is NOT in Blood & Guts, he probably takes the loss for Team AEW.

My Score: 9.1/10

Winner: Konosuke Takeshita, by pinfall

Callis is calling it “The T Trigger,” as if to poke fun at Kenny Omega. But whatever the move’s name, it was a big win for Takeshita. Callis joins Takeshita in the ring to celebrate, but Callis also has a mic. “I have something important to say.” The fans boo even more now. Callis says “This young man right here, he wrestled the match of a lifetime against Takeshita. C’mon, kid.” Tommy sits up and Callis introduces himself. And he says that was a tremendous effort. When Callis looks at Tommy, just 23 years old, the blood of the original Dynamite Kid in his veins, Callis says Tommy has everything he is looking for.

In fact, Callis was thinking on this back. He remembered his mentor, Bad News Allen, was also a mentor to Dynamite Kid. Now, Callis can be Tommy’s mentor. The fans boo but Callis says Bad News and Dynamite Kid would want this! So let’s seal the deal with a handshake! Welcome to the Don Callis Family! The fans boo and say “NO! NO!

Juice Robinson & The Gunns are here, and these #CollisionCowboys are looking to keep up their momentum as AEW heads for Wembley. Will the Unified World Trios Champions be more than ready to go All In?

Winners: The Bang Bang Gang, by pinfall

Bullet Club Gold made quick work of this match, and then Austin gets a mic. He hands that to Colten and Colten says, “Guns up for my Calgary Gold Members~! Alright, the good news is, you got to see the Bang Bang Gang, the best trios champions in the world! The bad news, last week, that turtleneck douchebag, Christian, hurt Jay White. But it’s okay, because as a quarter of the Trios Champions,” Juice can now officially BE a champion! Juice says well, he hates to say they were right but they were right. Tony Khan should’ve anointed Juice when he was told to. Now he has no choice! So with Jay White on the bench, you are lookin’ at THE A E W Unified Trios Champions!

But then someone says hold on, hold on. Christopher Daniels is here, and he doesn’t wanna make the bad news worse, but the thing is… When a team member gets hurt, they cannot allow a substitute. The fans are upset but Daniels says he must STRIP the Bang Bang Gang of those titles! Bullet Club Gold is mad, they thought Daniels was cool! But wait, here comes The Patriarchy… Christian Cage leads Mother Shayna, his “Prodigy Son” Nick Wayne, and Killswitch-Luchasaurus out. Christian tells Calgary to sit down and shut their mouths while he conducts business. Now, Daniels, that is the right call by stripping the Bang Bang Gang.

Now make another right call and anoint The Patriarchy the NEW champions right here and right now! The fans boo that even more! Daniels tells Christian to hold on. Tony Khan is not gonna like that idea any better. But here’s an idea Daniels has that TK is sure to love. Let’s have a Trios Championship match of The Bang Bang Gang VS The Patriarchy, the winners become THE Unified Trios Champions! Austin says let’s make it even easier! Let’s just do it here and now in Calgary! And if Christian ain’t down with that, they’ve got two words for him! GUNS UP!

Christian asks if Bang Bang Gang really wants to do this here and now. YES! Well, then that depends on if the fans want it. The fans cheer “YES! YES! YES!” Well of course they do, they are so desperate to see a championship since The Flames will never get one. That said, the Patriarchy ARE the next champions, BUT they aren’t tarnishing their victory by having it in Calgary. See you down the road, Bang Bang Gang. Captain Charisma is crafty, when and where will he and his “sons” step up to the challenge?


The House of Black speaks.

Malakai says, “Writing history is a delicate thing, Arlington, Texas. Because next week, you will be witness when The House of Black starts building what will be the foundation of Wembley.” Brody King barks, but what could they mean by that?


AEW shares Jeff Jarrett’s reunion with Martha & Oje Hart.

Never in Double J’s wildest dreams could he have imagined being in Calgary for his friend. After Wednesday Night Dynamite, the world now knows how special Owen Hart was as not just a wrestler but as a man. Martha is so happy that AEW has been able to honor Owen. Owen would be so happy to see this tribute. Oje says it was here in the Stampede Park that he and Jarrett met over 25 years ago. He’s never felt closer to his dad than doing these events.

Jarrett may not have won this year’s Owen Hart Cup, but can he make sure next year’s is even bigger and better?

Death Before Dishonor is less than two weeks away, and Mark Briscoe needs himself a challenger!

That was almost a knockout victory there! That’s how strong Roddy is, but will he prove he’s the strongest when he takes on Mark Briscoe? Speaking of…

Mark Briscoe speaks.

“Now the fine gentlemen in the AEW front office blessed me with a week off. Thank you very much, folks. But ain’t no weeks off around here, baby! Ain’t no days off around here! This is Sandy Bah God Fork, Delaware. We dem boys, baby! Ain’t no days off! I’ve been in this ring for hours now, bustin’ my ass, gettin’ my lungs right. Cuz in just a matter of a couple weeks, I got Blood & Guts comin’ up, Team AEW VS The Elite. Blood & Guts! The Elite! I think y’all’re a little over dressed for Blood & Guts. You might get some blood or your guts on your suits. I’m a chicken farmer, baby! Blood & Guts is what I do! That’s my currency, baby! Blood, guts, ‘n’ chicken *hit!”

Mark says The Elite can’t get dirty, they can’t get down with him! And not only that, but just earlier on this very evening, he just found out, two nights later, after Nashville, Tennessee, Blood & Guts, it’ll be Mark Briscoe VS Roderick Strong in Dallas, Texas, for the ROH World title. Roddy, you a former world champion yourself, and they’ve done this dance many times. But hey, Mark is a bit wiser. He only had two kids back then. Look at the salt in his pepper. See that wisdom? But he also knows “OC,” Orange Cassidy, and Kyle O’Reilly are gonna do their thing taking out Bennett & Taven. “Roddy, in Texas, yo ass is MINE!”


Program loading.

“Holo.grm” is coming to AEW, but just who is he? We find out, next week!


Stokely Hathaway & Kris Statlander talk backstage.

Big Stoke appreciates what Stat did last Wednesday night. Kris says that was divine. Stoke played the gifs over and over again. Lexy Nair walks over to ask them about that moment they got involved with Willow Nightingale’s match. What were their intentions? Their intentions? C’mon, Lexy, you know Stokely’s a hater and Kris is petty, so there was no way they were gonna let Willow get away with what she did to them. Stokely tells Willow that he hoped Kris had knocked some sense into her, but it seems he’s talking to someone whose favorite color is the number three.

Stoke will out and say it! Willow is the biggest con artist in AEW history! Every week, Willow walks out here to preach positivity and that smiling will make everything work out. Well, Willow, how has everything worked out for you? Stoke doesn’t think it’s gone well at all. Truth be told, everything Willow has gotten this year has been because of Stoke & Kris. There is an old saying: “I’ve brought you into this world and I can take you out.” Kris says this will never end for Willow. Kris & Stoke storm off, but what more can they possibly do to the Babe with the Power now?


Nyla Rose VS Ava Lawless!

The Native Beast is back in AEW, looking to return to the top of the food chain. Will Ava just be an appetizer? Or will “The Hellion” make Nyla lose her appetite?

The bell rings and the fans rally for Ava. The two tie up, Nyla waistlocks but Ava fires elbows. Ava is free, she fires more shots, then winds up to ROCK Nyla! Ava runs, ducks Nyla’s lariat and wrenches, but Nyla stuffs the STO! Nyla choke grips and CHOKE SLAMS Ava! The fans fire up as Nyla storms around. Ava stands up, Nyla SPLASHES her in the corner!

ROH just saw Darius & Dante Martin team up with Action Andretti to take on Shane Taylor Promotions in full, and that match was won by Shane Taylor Promotions. But now it will be 2v2, will it still be “Rumble, Bad Man, Rumble?” Or can Top Flight take flight to climb up the tag team rankings?

Backstage interview with Deonna Purrazzo.

Lexy Nair is with The Virtuosa and brings up her attack on Thunder Rosa and Rachael Ellering last night on Rampage. Deonna promised that wherever Rosa went, she would follow. Well, that’s not all that she promised. She also promised to burn AEW down to recreate it in her own image, and bring about The Age of The Virtuosa. If that means rearranging Rosa’s anatomy, that is par for the course. Speaking of, donde es La Mera Mera? Rosa steps right in! Rosa says she spoke to her therapist, because it has really bothered her. She is just sick and tired of all this! The running away, the hide ‘n’ seek, everything!

But the one thing that was clear to Rosa, is that she has to wait until the bell rings so that she can beat Deonna straight. Oh, is that what Rosa thinks will happen? She wants a bell to ring so Deonna can beat her in another  standard match? Or maybe in another No Disqualifications match? No, no, no. Why not just save us all the trouble and lie down for Deonna to pin you now. Rosa says Deonna is just so funny. But hey, it’s okay. Deonna has made a lot of enemies here, more than she can believe. Next week on Collision, in Rosa’s home state of Texas, Rosa’s new friends, and some of Deonna’s “acquaintances,” will all watch Rosa break Deonna’s face.

Because next week, it will be a LUMBERJACK MATCH! Deonna says all Rosa does is yap yap yap. Rosa tells Deonna off in Espanol, but will they both be speaking the universal language of an ass kicking next week in Texas?


Backstage interview with Nyla Rose.

The Native Beast is in a very good mood as she joins Lexy, and Lexy congratulates her on the win tonight. But Nyla has something to say so the floor is hers. Nyla wants to say she’s doing great! She goes to leave, but then steps back and and says there is one little thing more. You all like wrestling? Then let’s talk about it. A few days, Nyla noticed a little tweet on her Twitter feed, put out by The CEO. Nyla loves the dance, but hey, guess what? Mercedes Mone issued an Open Challenge for Dynamite 250! Little Rock, Arkansas, to anyone except Dr. Britt Baker, DMD. Well, last time Nyla checked, she ain’t a dentist, but she does knock teeth out.

Listen: Nyla has what it takes! She was on the first ever Dynamite, she is a former AEW Women’s World Champion,, she won the first ever Women’s Casino Battle Royal, and is the first woman on the AEW roster to make it to 100 wins total. So next week, Dynamite 250, Nyla may not have ever driven a Mercedes, but she’s damn sure gonna wreck one! SKRRRR~! The Native Beast wants to finally have some gold back around her waist, will she waste Mone to get it?


Skye Blue VS Harley Cameron w/ Saraya!

A new look for the Chicago Skye, but her attitude is just as bitter as ever. Meanwhile, The Outcasts’ Aussie of anarchy is as bonkers as ever! With all this talk of championships, who puts themselves in the conversation with a big win here in Calgary?

The bell rings and the two circle. They tie up, Harley and Skye both pull hair, and then they let off. They both dodge the other, Saraya distracts Skye, and Harley rolls Skye up! TWO, Skye kicks Harley low! Skye whips, Harley reverses then runs in to SPLASH! Harley digs her boot into Skye, shrieks as she does, but lets off as the ref counts. Skye snarls and she puts Harley in the corner to return the favor! The ref counts, Skye lets off at 4, then Skye whips corner to corner. Skye runs in, but Harley slips free! Harley ROUNDHOUSES Skye away, goes up and slingshots in to LARIAT! Harley then ELBOWS away on Skye!

Harley rallies the fans, and ELBOWS again! Naughty cover, TWO! Skey flounders but Harley stalks her. Harley pushes Skye, climbs up, and she rains down fists! But Skye slips free, tucks Harley in, and CHEEKY NANDOS! That had some sauce on it! Saraya says Harley is making a mess! Skye BOOTS Harley out of the ring! Saraya gets in Skye’s face again but Harley reels Skye in, RUSSIAN LEG SWEEP! Harley dribbles Skye off the floor, the ref reprimands, and Harley lets off. Harley steps away and Saraya talks trash while Collision goes picture in picture.

Saraya talks trash even though we can’t hear her. Harley CLUBS Skye, pushes her against the apron, and CHOPS! Skye sputters, but she SLAPS Harley back! Harley SMACKS Skye off the apron, pushes her into the ring, then storms in after her. Harley drags Skye up to whip and ELBOW her down! Cover, TWO! Harley stalks Skye to ropes to CHOKE her! The ref counts, Harley lets off, but Harley also argues with the ref so Saraya can fire off knees on Skye! Saraya gets away with all that, then Harley scuffs Skey. Harley stomps Skye, drags her up, but Skye fires body shots! Harley ROCKS Skye, ROCKS Her again, but Skye ROCKS her back!

Skye fires off shots, whips, but Harley reverses. Harley runs Skye over, covers, TWO! Saraya coaches Harley and she looms over Skye. Harley drags Skye up, but Skey fires more body shots. Skye ROCKS Harley again, but Harley ducks ‘n’ dodge! DOUBLE LARIATS take both ladies down, and Collision goes to break.

Collision returns and Skye runs in at the ropes to SHINING WIZARD! She snapmares Harley hard, then runs up. Skye blocks a kick, KNEES Harley, and hits a TWIST ‘N’ SHOUT! Cover, TWO! Saraya is relieved but Skye is frustrated as she stalks Harley. Skye fireman’s carries but Harley fights with elbows. Harley ROCKS Skye, whips her to a corner, but Skye reverses. Skye runs in, but Harley goes up and over to sunset flip! TWO!! Skye escapes, stands up, but Harley wrenches for some SOLE FOOD! Cover, TWO!! Skye survives and Harley is shocked! Saraya says she’s still proud of Harley, though.

Harley drags Skye up but Skye drags her into a cradle! TWO and Harley mule kicks. Harley runs to SHINING WIZARD! Cover, TWO!! Skye survives again and Harley is furious! Saraya asks how Aubrey is a ref when she can’t count right! Harley stalks Skye to ropes, brings her up to CLUB her, then BACK- NO! Skye holds ropes to stop the backstabber, and now jackknife bridge! TWO, and Harley spins Skye to ROCK her again! Skye SUPERKICKS back! Skye fireman’s carries for the T K O! Roll back, into a DRAGON SLEEPER HEAD ‘N’ ARM TRIANGLE! Harley TAPS, Skye wins!

Winner: Skye Blue, by submission

Saraya can’t believe what just happened! But Skye is rising, will she finally be golden for the Summer?


Skye Blue speaks.

“You see that? You see that? These b*tches need to start putting some respect on my name! Because I am one of the best here. So maybe just to get it through their heads, I have to beat one of the best on the entire roster. So… Hikaru Shida… the so-called Greatest AEW Women’s World Champ of all time… Next week, I want you one-on-one.” Skye calls out the Shining Samurai, will Shida make Skye put some respect on her name?


Orange Cassidy & Kyle O’Reilly VS The Kingdom!

The Conglomeration has been itching for a fight with Roderick Strong, Matt Taven & Mike Bennett, and we’ll be seeing part of that when Mark Briscoe takes on Roddy at Death Before Dishonor. The other two-thirds are in action now, will this be a Violently Squeezed victory for Cassidy & Kyle? Or will Taven & Bennett show us why they’re ROH World Tag Team Champions?

The teams sort out and Kyle starts against Taven. Taven tells Kyle that they’re still friends, he doesn’t wanna do this. Taven tags Bennett, and Bennett circles with Kyle. But then Bennett also gets second thoughts, and he bails out. The Kingdom doesn’t wanna fight their “friend” but the fans chant “WUSSIES! WUSSIES!” So Cassidy tags in to DIVE onto them both!

Taven waistlocks, Cassidy switches and shoves Taven into Bennett. Cassidy then back drops Taven, and has hands up! Bennett runs up but Cassidy blocks the kick. Cassidy spins Bennett, headlocks, but Bennett powers up and out. Cassidy tags Kyle, dodges Bennett, then puts hands in pockets before bailing. Bennett runs around and Kyle KICKS! And KICKS! And whips, to then kitchen sink knee! Bennett sputters, Taven runs in, but Kyle blocks the kick!

Taven apologizes and says he still doesn’t wanna fight. But then he pokes Kyle in the eyes! Taven says that is why he doesn’t wanna do this. But Cassidy runs in to tilt-o-whirl. Taven stops that, suplexes, but gets STUN DOG MILLIONAIRE! Cassidy holds Taven in place so Kyle can AX and SMASH! Bennett stands, blocks a kick, but Kyle rolls to pick the ANKLE LOCK! Bennett endures, reaches out, and he rolls! Taven GAMANGIRIS Kyle, but Cassidy DECKS Taven! Cassidy dodges Bennett, SHOVES him out, then Cassidy DIVES! Direct hit and Bennett hits railing! Cassidy sends Bennet to the apron but Bennett rebounds, BOSTON BAYONET!

Bennett talks smack on Cassidy, goes to the ring, but Kyle catches him for a SLEEPER! Bennett JAWBREAKERS free, then waistlocks. Kyle switches, hops on, SLEEPER BACKPACK! Bennett endures, calls Taven, and they PROTON PACK Kyle down! Cover, Cassidy breaks it! The fans cheer, Taven storms up, and Roddy cheers his team from commentary. Cassidy TOSSES Taven first, though! Then he dodges Bennett to SHOTGUN! But JUST THE TIP hits Cassidy! Kyle storms up, Taven ROCKS him! Taven again apologizes but what’s done is done. Taven runs, into a KNEE! Kyle snapmares Taven, Bennett ROCKS him!

Kyle yoyos in ropes to DOUBLE LARIAT The Kingdom! The fans fire up as all three men are down! Roddy is conflicted as Collision goes picture in picture.

Cassidy crawls on the outside, Taven bails out, leaving Kyle and Bennett in the ring. Kyle and Bennett crawl, hot tags to Taven and Cassidy! Cassidy and Taven fire off fast hands! Taven knees low, whips Cassidy, but Cassidy tumbles up and out to then bump Taven off buckles. Cassidy dribbles Taven off the buckles again and again, pauses, then again! Cassidy goes up the corner but Taven distracts the ref so that Bennett can trip Cassidy up! Roddy smiles as Cassidy falls to the mat. Bennett tag sin, he drags Cassidy up, and Bennett CHOPS! Cassidy sputters, Bennett ROCKS him! And CHOPS him! Cassidy falls, Bennett soaks up the heat.

Bennett stays between Cassidy and Kyle, mocks the hands in pockets, then stomps Cassidy. Roddy is having fun now as Bennett whips Cassidy to ropes. Bennett ELBOWS Cassidy down, covers, TWO! Bennett clamps on with a chinlock and he grinds Cassidy down. Cassidy fights up, pries at the hold, then fires body shots. Bennett ROCKS Cassidy, tags Taven, and The Kingdom mugs Cassidy as Collision returns to single picture. But then Cassidy starts fighting back! The fans fire up as but Taven knees low.

The fans fire up but Taven drags Cassidy over. Tag to Bennett, they stomp Cassidy, then Bennett CHOPS Cassidy. Cover, TWO! Tag to Taven, The Kingdom mugs Cassidy more, then Taven bumps Cassidy off buckles. Taven digs his boot in, tags to Bennett, then he sends Taven in.

The fans fire up for the Stone Pitbull, but wait! TRENT BERETTA sneaks in from the crowd side! Trent YANKS Cassidy out, and THROWS him into railing! Trent still hates Cassidy that much! Bennett rolls Kyle up in all the chaos, TWO!! Kyle ROCKS Bennett, Bennett ROLLING ELBOWS back! Bennett reels Kyle in, but Kyle snap suplexes! ARMBAR!! Taven goes up top to FROG SPLASH Kyle! Taven goes back up, tags in, and Bennett has Kyle up! HAIL MARY PILEDRIVER!! Cover, The Kingdom wins!

Winners: The Kingdom, by pinfall

Trent shouts that HE was supposed to win, and he CHOKES Cassidy! Trent vows that they are far from over! As for The Kingdom, they still insist they are Kyle’s friends, despite what they just did to him. And Trent won’t let Cassidy have friends, he PUNTS Kyle in the side! The Kingdom shove Trent back, they apparently are still his friend. Cassidy gets up, and he has a wrench?!? Cassidy CLUBS Trent on the back!! The fans lose their minds over Cassidy showing his dark side! Kyle stops Cassidy from going after The Kingdom, as they’re apparently still his friends, too. Cassidy hears Kyle out, and he puts the wrench down.

But that’s okay, Ishii DOUBLE LARIATS The Kingdom! Ishii stands with his friend in Orange Cassidy, and the fans cheer as The Conglomeration still stands tall. But just how much deeper will the grudge between Cassidy and Trent go after this? Will they have to go All In to finally put it to a rest?

My Thoughts:

A very good episode of Collision, but you could tell this was prerecorded in Calgary, not live. But that’s fine, we got some good post show content from Dynamite here, such as Jarrett meeting with Martha & Oje, and some hype packages for the coming title matches, like Ospreay VS MJF and Swerve VS Danielson. We got a good promo from  Deonna and Rosa to add to what we got on Rampage, but I can’t be sure it was that crucial to have. They could’ve had this for Dynamite 250 to set up the Lumberjack match for Collision and it would’ve been the same. And we got more of “Holo.grm,” aka Hologram, but I cannot tell who this really is behind the mask.

The House of Black but they were still rather vague about what’s gonna happen next. Maybe they wait to see what happens with the Unified Trios Championships. Good squash win for Bang Bang Gang, and really good promo from them, The Fallen Angel and Christian Cage to set up a Trios Championship match. The semantics of it are silly, though. “No Freebird Rule here in AEW! The Bang Bang Gang is stripped! But they’re also right in the title match with The Patriarchy!” A = B = C, Juice IS a Trios Champion and he is helping defend the titles after all. But that said, maybe Patriarchy finds a way to win, House of Black surprisingly gets Buddy Matthews back in time, Patriarchy VS House of Black for the titles at All In.

Great opener from Takeshita VS Billington, and I do like Callis trying to recruit the new Dynamite Kid to his group. FTR coming to the rescue is great, I could see FTR & Billington VS Takeshita, Fletcher & Rush to be Rush’s first match as a member of the Don Callis Family. As such, it feels like Rush will pin Billington, and then maybe we get more FTR VS Don Callis Family feuding through the Summer. Stokely & Kris had a good promo to explain their actions, and we should definitely get an All In blowoff between Kris and Willow. And at the same time, Willow becoming CMLL Women’s World Champion totally refutes their statement that all she has was cuz of them, cuz now she did this on her own!

Nyla Rose of course won her match tonight, but very good promo for her to accept Mone’s Open Challenge. Now, pretty sure Mone finds a way to win, it’ll add to how she’s a tough champion and all. But also, Mone VS Britt will still happen at All In, even if Mone doesn’t want it. I feel like Britt needs to get back in the ring to “earn” the shot, though, because that’s how AEW is supposed to work. Very good tag match from Top Flight VS Ogogo & Moriarty, but it feels rather redundant after we just got Top Flight VS Shane Taylor Promotions just last night on ROH. Maybe we get Shane VS Action 1v1 to complete the set.

Good match from Skye VS Harley, and good win for Skye. Skye calling out Shida was a bold move, not sure if that backfires on her. And very good stuff in the story of The Conglomeration and The Undisputed Kingdom. Roddy VS Castle not being the main event surprised me, but I suppose Roddy was of course going to win. And Briscoe having a promo so at the ready was another indicator this was all prerecorded. Briscoe VS Roddy is going to be awesome stuff for Death Before Dishonor, though. Then Cassidy & Kyle VS Taven & Bennett in the main event was really good, and I was pleasantly surprised by the overbooking.

Roddy keeps talking trash on Ishii so of course Ishii showed up, but then Trent was the biggest surprise. Well, that and Cassidy cracking him with a wrench! I feel like they’re going to have a really hardcore blowoff match at some point, and that monkey wrench is gonna come into play for the finish.

My Score: 8.7/10
