AEW International Championship: Jon Moxley VS “Big Bill” Morrissey w/ Ricky Starks!

The Maniac came to The American Dragon’s rescue on Collision, only to get thrown around by the towering man coming for his title! Will Cincinnati’s own break Big Bill for what he did to Bryan Danielson? Or will we already have another NEW International Champion?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see if the Absolute’s client strikes gold!

The bell rings and the fans rally up for Moxley. Moxley and Bill circle, Mox KICKS at a leg then fires forearms! Moxley has Bill in a corner but Bill shoves him away first. Bill ROCKS Mox, but Mox flips him off! Mox fires forearms back and fans fire up! Bill shoves Mox and UPPERCUTS! Moxley staggers and falls back, and Bill rains down fists! Fans boo but Bill lets off to soak up the heat. Bill storms back to Moxley and brings him around to CLUB him down! Bill scuffs Moxley to a corner, then stands him up. Bill CHOPS Moxley and Moxley staggers away. Bill storms up to CHOP Moxley again!

Fans rally for Moxley as he snarls, but Bill waits. Moxley CHOPS! And CHOPS! And CHOPS! Moxley runs, but Bill scoops him! Bill grins as he FALL AWAY SLAMS Moxley across the way! Fans boo but Starks is loving this as Bill SPLASHES Moxley in the corner! Bill keeps moving but Moxley ELBOWS him away! And LARIATS! Bill stays up so Moxley LARIATS again! Bill is still up, and he KNEES Moxley low! Bill runs now to BOOT Moxley out of the ring! Fans boo but Bill just soaks it up. The ref is distracted with Bill and Starks stomps Moxley! Fans boo more but Bill goes out to fetch Moxley.

Bill stalks Moxley around the way, fans rally up, but Bill CLUBS Moxley down! Moxley takes a seat and Bill fires off haymakers! Moxley staggers away, but Bill is on him again to ROCK him with another right! Bill whips, Moxley reverses, and Bill is sent into steel steps! Starks is upset, but Moxley flips him off! Moxley goes after Bill, drags him up with a headlock, and brings him around to punch! But Bill TOSSES Moxley over the timekeeper table! Fans boo but Bill and Starks soak it up as Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Moxley is down, having taken the table with him. Starks and Bill high-ten, and then Bill goes back to fetch Moxley. Bill moves the table aside, ROCKS Moxley again, then stalks Moxley. Bill BOOTS Moxley into more railing! Fans rally as Moxley is slumped over, but Bill punches at Moxley’s bloody forehead! Moxley staggers into the ring but Bill pursues. Bill stalks Moxley as he’s punch drunk, and just ROCKS him again! Moxley falls against Bill, Bill soaks up the heat while his pants soak up some Moxley blood. Bill throws hands, but Moxley eggs him on! So Bill scoops and SLAMS Moxley down! Then he drops a BIG elbow! Cover, TWO!

Bill looms over Moxley as he reaches out for ropes, and Bill gets a taste of Moxley’s blood, literally! Bill swaggers like Jagger and then SLAPS Moxley! Moxley CHOPS back! Bill CHOPS and Moxley falls! Bill stands on Moxley’s neck! The ref counts, Bill talks trash but he steps away at 4. Moxley stands but Bill scoops to SLAM him again! Bill pumps up and runs, but Moxley avoids the elbow drop! Moxley hurries to RAM Bill into a corner, and he hoists Bill up top! Moxley CHOPS, then climbs, and Dynamite returns to single picture. Fans rally up as Moxley fires hands, and CLAWS Big Bill’s big back! Moxley reels Bill in, to SUPERPLEX!

Both men are down and fans are loving this! Starks, not so much. A standing count starts, Bill and Moxley stir, and fans rally behind Moxley. Moxley stands at 5 of 10 with his crimson mask growing! Moxley runs in, but into a BOSS MAN SLAM! Cover, TWO!! Moxley survives and Bill grows frustrated. Bill DECKS Moxley, then BOOTS him! Moxley sits up, so Bill BOOTS him again! Fans rally as Moxley sits up again! Moxley eggs Bill on more but Bill BOOTS him again! Moxley rises to his feet no! Moxley and Bill are forehead to forehead, then go forearm for forearm! Fans rally behind Moxley as he gets the edge!

Bill UPPERCUTS, runs, but Moxley blocks the boot, to LARIAT!! Cover, TWO!! Bill survives but Moxley has him for HAMMER ‘N’ ANVIL ELBOWS!! The Blackpool Combat Club favorite ragdolls Bill, and Moxley wraps on a SLEEPER! Starks shouts for Bill to get up, and Bill rises to his feet! Moxley hops on as a backpack! But Bill RAMS Moxley into buckles! Bill staggers away, catches his breath and returns, into a CUTTER!! Fans are thunderous as Bill bails out and flops against railing! Moxley sees that, and he goes up top, only for STARKS to shove Moxley down! The ref wonders what happened but fans boo!

Bill runs in, and he BOOTS Moxley down! Cover, TWO!!! Moxley survives and here comes BRYAN! Bryan CLOBBERS Starks and brawls with the Absolute! Bryan DECKS Starks, DECKS him again, and just keeps firing hands! Fans are thunderous and Bill is distracted, ROLL-UP! TWO!! Bill escapes, Starks whips Bryan into steel steps! Bill runs in but into a BOOT from Moxley! Moxley goes up, and he leaps, into a choke grip! SKYSCRAPER CHOKE SLAM!!! Cover, TWO?!?!? Moxley survives and Cincinnati is electric! Bill rains down fists in frustration but fans rally as hard as they can for Moxley!

Bill flips the fans off with bloody fingers, then he mocks Moxley before he choke grips! But Moxley TRIANGLE HOLDS!! Bill fights to his feet, Starks is there but Bryan keeps him out of the ring! Bill still deadlifts Moxley, but Moxley squeezes harder!! Moxley drags Bill down, Starks says don’t, but Bill taps! Moxley wins!!

Winner: Jon Moxley, by submission (still AEW International Champion)

Starks is furious and he fires off on Bryan with fists! And Bill CLOBBERS Moxley! Fans boo and Starks gets in, to use a SHOE as a weapon! Bryan runs in to CLOBBER Starks! Bill CLUBS Bryan, CLAUDIO runs out! The Swiss Superman dodges Bill to then fireman’s carry!! Bill slips free to the apron and choke grips, but Claudio UPPERCUTS! The BCC regroups but Starks has Bill fall back. Starks is absolutely seething, but it’s not like the BCC is in a good mood, either! Will they settle things down the line? What about Moxley facing Rey Fenix next week at Grand Slam for the title? Will Moxley make it past the Immortal Firebird? Or will he burn for his past transgressions?


Backstage interview with Roderick Strong & The Kingdom.

Renee Paquette is with the Savior of the Backbreaker, as well as Matt Taven & Mike Bennett, and says tonight is the finals, Strong VS Joe, the winner moving on to next week’s Dynamite: Grand Slam to face MJF for the AEW World Championship. And the last time Strong faced Joe, Joe nearly put Strong on the shelf. Strong points out the keyword, “nearly.” But before Strong can say more, Adam Cole walks in! Adam wants Roddy to listen. This is a horrible, horrible idea. After what happened last time, Joe could break Strong’s neck! Oh, look, guys! NOW Adam cares about Roddy! Amazing.

But Roddy says The Kingdom believes in him, and the only person Adam seems to believe in is Max. But this time, Adam should be more worried about Max, because after Strong breaks Joe, Strong will break MJF’s back and become the NEW AEW World Champion! Because Roddy is a wrestling LEGEND! Let’s go, boys. Roddy leads his new friends away, but will Taven & Bennett be there to pick up the pieces after tonight?


Tony Schiavone is in the ring.

And he tells everyone that it is time for the “unveiling of a masterpiece,” and a celebration, too, apparently. So please welcome to the ring… Schiavone has to hold back a gag reflex… Don Callis. Fans boo as Dastardly Don and his “new son,” Konosuke Takeshita, head to the ring. And on the tron plays the highlights of Konosuke pinning Kenny Omega in back to back matches, the Six Man Tag at All In London, and the 1v1 match at All Out. Callis & Konosuke join Schiavone in the ring, and Schiavone says they got the welcome they probably expected. Callis snatches the mic away and fans boo more.

Callis says he and Konosuke beat Omega twice in one week, show some respect! But Callis learned a lot about Japanese culture from Konosuke. And he learned that the top wrestler in the promotion is referred to as “The Ace.” There have been a lot of great Aces, but Konosuke is better than all of them! Better than Rikidozan! Than Maeda! Than Sakaguchi! Than Toshu! Than Okada! And even INOKI! “So when you beat Kenny Omega once, they call you The Ace. But when you beat Kenny Omega TWICE in seven days, they don’t call you The Ace! They call you The ALPHA!!” Callis points to the tron and we see the logo for Konosuke’s new nickname.

Fans boo as confetti and streamers fly, while Callis says we will now refer to him as “The Alpha,” Konosuke Takeshita. And he’s a real alpha male, not a fake like Chris Jericho. A lot of people say they should feel bad for destroying Kenny, but Callis feels nothing. He’s never been good with “empathy,” it just felt like weakness. When you’re The Alpha, you don’t feel, you take! You take everything that can be taken, and then you take a little more. On that note, Kenny, beating you twice isn’t enough for them! They broke Kenny’s body, but now they’ll break his heart. Callis promised to reveal through his creation who the next target was, and who The Alpha is going to beat!

Callis tells Kenny that this one will “kill” him. For the next target is none other than the former IWGP Heavyweight Champion and the living, breathing heart of Kenny Omega, KOTA IBUSHI! Callis pulls the veil away and there it is, Callis pointing at Ibushi and Konosuke holding up a sword! Callis brings out the screwdriver and he tells Kenny that they won’t just beat Ibushi, they won’t just take him from Kenny and pin him. They’re gonna BUTCHER him! They’re gonna SKIN him! They’re gonna BURN him! And Callis is going to love the fact that while he and Konosuke are spilling Ibushi’s blood, Kenny will be at home, helplessly watching, “like the pathetic cuck that you are!”

And then Callis STABS the painting of Ibushi with the screwdriver!! Fans boo at the graphic foreshadowing, and then Callis gives Konosuke his flowers. Konosuke shoves those at Schiavone as a disrespectful allusion to a funeral for Ibushi! But will the Golden Star prove he’s not helpless at all?


Backstage interview with the Blackpool Combat Club.

Alex Marvez is with Bryan, Claudio and the still bloody Moxley and brings up the issues that continue to escalate between them and Ricky Starks. Yes, Bryan says that the BCC loves it when things escalate! They’re all about escalation! So here’s a challenge for Starks & Bill! This Saturday, AEW Collision, Starks & Bill VS Bryan & Claudio! But Marvez does bring up that there are big title matches for Moxley and Claudio just next week at Dynamite: Grand Slam. Moxley says yeah, those aren’t title matches, that’s a day off. That’s easy money right there! Claudio agrees, and says that Eddie-

Oh wait, Fenix storms over! Abrahantes and Penta have to hold him back as he shouts “I’m gonna beat you next week! I WILL beat you, do you hear?!” Refs and security rush over to get the enraged Fenix away, but Bryan says if they want escalation, they’re here for it! Eddie Kingston has also stepped in at this point, and he stares Claudio down. Eddie eventually smiles and says, “One more week.” Then he laughs as he leaves. The issues between these two are on a whole different level, who becomes a DOUBLE Champion next week in New York?


Backstage interview with Hook.

Dynamite returns as Renee is with the FTW Champion, and congratulates him on regaining the title at All In London. How does this title run feel different? But then Orange Cassidy walks in?! Renee says hi, and he says hey. What’s up? “I dunno. Just walkin’ around… I saw Hook here all mad about something, and what do you gotta be mad about? You’re here, you can wrestle. You don’t have tape all over your body. And you have a championship. I used to have a championship.” Hook says Cassidy was a great champion, though. Oh, thanks, man. You are, too. They fist bump. Then Hook leaves.

Renee asks if Cassidy is okay. He… is still so tired. Will Freshly Squeezed be able to make a comeback at some point? What will he aim to do when he does?


AEW Women’s World Championship #1 Contender’s Fatal 4 Way: Hikaru Shida VS Britt Baker VS Nyla Rose w/ Marina Shafir VS Toni Storm!

Former champions all, these four top stars are battling for a Grand Slam opportunity against Saraya! But will it be the Shining Samurai, The Doctor, The Native Beast, or the bat crap crazy Lightning From Down Under that defies the odds and seizes the moment?

The bell rings and Storm immediately shouts “CUT! CUT!” She’s not ready for her scene! Storm storms out of the ring before either Shida or Britt can catch her, and then Nyla ruses them! Shida and Britt dodge to fire off on Nyla together, then double whip. Nyla DOUBLE LARIATS them first! Fans are torn but then Storm gets in to steal the spotlight! Fans cheer but Nyla tells her to cut that out. And then Shida comes back to CLUB Nyla and ROCK Storm! Britt joins in, Shida stomps Storm in a corner and Britt throws hands on Nyla. But then Nyla throws Britt out of the ring! But Shida dropkicks Nyla and Britt DUMPS Nyla out!

Fans rally, Shida and Britt have a tense moment but Storm RAMS into Shida, sending her into Britt, and then Britt falls onto Nyla and Shafir! Storm waistlocks but Shida switches to TOSS Storm! Fans fire up as Shida holds the ring, and she goes up the ropes! Shida SUPER CROSSBODIES everybody! Fans are all fired up as Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Shida puts Storm back in the ring, and Shida has her in the corner. Shida climbs up to rain down fists! Fans cheer and count along, and Shida goes all the way to TEN! But then Nyla CLAWS Shida’s back! Nyla brings Shida around to scoop and SLAM! But then Britt gets in to CLUB Nyla! And fire off forearms! Britt whips but Nyla blocks! Nyla whips, Britt ducks ‘n’ dodges, to SLINGBLADE! Storm CLOBBERS Britt! Storm stomps Britt to a corner, then CHOPS her! Storm gets Nyla to work with her, and Nyla whips Storm in to SPLASH Britt! Storm then sends Nyla in to SPLASH Britt! Storm and Nyla applaud each other, but then Nyla ROCKS Storm!

Nyla fires forearms and she DECKS Storm! Cover, Shida breaks it! Shida hits Storm to a corner, then keeps on her. Fans rally up, Britt is on Nyla again with forearms, but Nyla blocks! Shida bumps Storm off buckles, Britt still fires shots but Nyla puts her in a corner for body shots! Nyla digs a boot in, while Storm turns things around on Shida for stomps of her own! The ref can’t stop anyone from digging boots in, so Nyla and Storm go a bit past five there. Storm and Nyla regroup, Storm still thinking they can work together, but Nyla stomps Storm’s foot! Storm falls over, and Nyla digs her boots in on Shida!

Nyla lets off Shida to flex and soak up the heat. Shida gets up to CLUB Nyla! And again! Nyla DECKS Shida! Storm brings Shida up while Nyla stalks Britt. Storm fires shots on Shida while Nyla does the same to Britt, and Nyla even CHOKES Britt! Dynamite returns to single picture as Shida and Storm go back and forth with forearms. Nyla DECKS Britt, soaks up more heat, and then Shida DECKS Storm! Storm gets up to BOOT Shida! Nyla stands Britt up, puts some stank on it, but Britt dodges the haymaker to SUPERKICK! Storm GERMAN SUPLEXES Britt! And SWEET HIP MUSIC for Nyla! Shida gets Storm for a BRAINBUSTER!

Shida and Britt turn to see each other, the tension rises between these once allies, but then Nyla and Storm CHOP BLOCK them! Fans boo as Storm stomps Britt, but then Nyla kicks Storm! Nyla reels Storm in, gets her up, BEAST BOMB!! Cover, TWO and Storm sits on the cover, only to get a TAMASHII KNEE! Nyla covers Storm again, but Shida breaks it! Shida and Britt work together to beat up Nyla but Nyla kicks Shida away, and CHOKE SLAMS Britt! Nyla reels Shida in now, but Shida back drops free! Nyla sunset flips it, but Shida sits back on it! TWO!! Shida runs, SLIDING KICK to the back on Nyla!

Fans fire up with Shida and she takes aim! KATANA!! Cover, Britt SUPERKICKS it apart! Every woman for herself! Britt runs, to CURB STOMP!! Storm rolls Britt up! STORM WINS!!

Winner: Toni Storm, by pinfall (NEW #1 Contender to the AEW Women’s World Champion)

Storm seems to shock herself with how she stole the scene, or rather the win, from Britt! But now, Storm is going to be set up against her “friend,” Saraya! Is this going to be a case of friendly competition? Tough love? Or anything but friendly?

Speaking of no longer friends, Shida is after Britt for costing her! Britt shoves free of Shida’s grip, but Shida pushes her around! Britt doesn’t get it, but she snatches away Shida’s kendo stick! Will these two have something to settle as things roll on into the Autumn?


Backstage interview with The Outcasts.

That is to say, Renee is with Ruby Soho & AEW Women’s World Champion, Saraya. Renee brings up that it will be Saraya VS Storm, but this time, how will things be different? Saraya does congratulate Storm for winning, and without them! They couldn’t be… prouder? Is that the word? Soho says sorta. But things are different. When Saraya walked in here a year ago, she was the “new kid” and Storm was the champion! But then Storm lost it, and she lost it all, to Saraya. She lost the title, her friends, her top spot as the biggest star, because that’s Saraya now. Oh, and she also lost her mind! Storm is CRAZY.

But y’know what? Storm’s also gonna lose at Grand Slam because Saraya will still be AEW Women’s World Champion, leaving Storm with NOTHING. The Knight is ready to take on The Lightning, will she hit a home run or be struck out in Arthur Ashe Stadium?


Chris Jericho & Sammy Guevara are here!

Le Sex Gods head to the ring together, and Cincinnati sings Judas for The Ocho. They get the pyro, and then Jericho & Sammy continue to the ring. Jericho & Sammy get mics, and Jericho starts with, “Next week, right here on Dynamite, at Grand Slam in New York City, for the first time ever, it’s Le Sex Gods going one on one, Jericho VS Guevara, for the first time ever like I say. Lots of history behind this match. Sammy and I have been together for four years, since the first episode of Dynamite. We’ve been through highs and lows, ups and downs, and ups again. As a matter of fact, we wanted to remind you about some of the great memories and great times we’ve had over those years. Let’s check out the package that we put together for you guys here tonight, right here in Cincinnati.”

Jericho points to the tron and the video begins. First it was The Inner Circle, and Sammy said Jericho is like a father to him. Jericho once said they’re not just friends, they’re brothers. Celebration after celebration, hug after hug, goofing off together and Sammy singing Judas. Them using Floyd the Baseball Bat, but even having their rough patches as Inner Circle battled out feuds. But in the end, Sammy has always had Jericho’s back. Fans cheer the video package as we return to present, and Jericho said Sammy was like a little babby in those early years. Sammy has a confession, though. He still doesn’t know all the lyrics to Judas.

Sammy is still learning but Jericho says it’s fine, he wasn’t even in key anyway. Jericho says October 21st, 2018, Jericho was watching the NWA 70th Anniversary PPV, and on one of the prelim matches, there was this kid, Sammy Guevara. Fans cheer that, and Jericho says he was completely blown away to the point where he called Tony Khan and told him, “We need to sign this kid.” Jericho was blown away by the athleticism, the creativity, the way Sammy looked and the way Sammy carried himself. Jericho wasn’t blown away by the giant panda head but Jericho knew Sammy had what it took to be a big star, and Jericho knew he wanted Sammy around so he could help Sammy as much as he possibly could.

Fans cheer and Jericho continues to say that over the years, he has watched Sammy grow from a boy into a man. Seriously, he has matured, won titles, gotten married, and is preparing for the birth of a baby girl of his own. Fans cheer that, too. Jericho says he is really proud of Sammy these last four years, he means that. Fans cheer more and Sammy nods. Sammy thanks Jericho for that, and knows the typical wrestling thing is to talk trash on ya, brother, but he doesn’t wanna do that. Sammy and Jericho are friends, and Jericho inspires Sammy. As a kid, Sammy used to do Code Breakers in his mom’s backyard.

So, Sammy wants to be out here before one of the biggest matches of his life, to say thank you. Thank you, Jericho, for changing Sammy’s life, and so many other people’s lives. Because without Chris Jericho, there is no AEW. Fans cheer that, and Jericho is very touched. Fans chant “Thank You, Chris!” Sammy continues to say truthfully, he didn’t come to AEW just to be Jericho’s sidekick. He got into pro-wrestling to be the man, to be world champion, to have this company and these fans look at him the same way they do Moxley, the way they do Bryan, and the way they do Jericho! Fans do cheer that.

Sammy knows that in his heart, that won’t happen as long as he is in Jericho’s shadow. That is why he needs to beat Jericho next week. Jericho says yes, that is true, but let’s get this straight. Jericho never brought Sammy in to be his sidekick. Sammy was brought here to become a main event player, a money-making draw, and he is getting closer and closer every single week. That is why Jericho said months ago, to Sammy and Daniel Garcia, that if they wanna make it to the next level, they have to do it outside of Jericho’s influence. They have to do it on their own. Next week, Sammy has the biggest opportunity to do that.

Sammy is right, next week is one of the biggest matches of Sammy’s career. It’s even one of the biggest matches of Jericho’s career. And Sammy has to beat him to get to the next level. BUT, if Sammy is gonna beat Jericho, Sammy has to be the best Sammy Guevara he’s ever been, better than ever before, if he even has a chance of beating Jericho! Fans cheer that, and then Jericho says, “But I don’t think you’re ready to beat me yet.” Sammy says there it is! That is WHY Sammy has to beat Jericho! Because Jericho doesn’t truly respect Sammy like Sammy respects him! It’s just what Jericho wants, that is what it has been these four years.

But y’know what, Jericho? Next week, Sammy WILL beat him! And this Sammy! Not 2018 Sammy at NWA 70! Or Sammy with the panda head! The man standing right in front of Jericho is gonna beat him! And Sammy will earn Jericho’s respect, and then they shake hands, hug it out, and win those tag team titles! Fans cheer as Sammy offers a handshake and Jericho takes it. Jericho then pulls Sammy in to be face to face to show how serious he is about this. Jericho says he wants to make this perfectly clear to Sammy: Next week, Jericho gives you the match of your life. And he won’t go easy on Sammy. Jericho will beat the living Hell out of him!

Jericho will punch Sammy harder than he’s ever punched anyone in his life! And he expects the exact same thing from Sammy. Sammy says, “I wouldn’t want it any other way.” Fans fire up and the two nod. Will the protege prove he has surpassed his mentor? Will Jericho establish he is still the GOAT? And one way or another, will their friendship survive?


AEW shares footage from just after last week’s Dynamite.

Renee was with MJF in the medical trainer’s room, Adam Cole bringing ice packs over. The medic said that unfortunately, MJF’s neck is not good enough to clear him for even travel at this point, but MJF will be able to make it to Grand Slam. Adam apologizes to MJF but MJF says bro, he gets the week off while “these shmucks have to wrestle each other,” he’s great! Well, okay, but Renee says that Grand Slam will still see him defend the world title, so talk to us about the other competitors. “Let’s face it, if I’m a betting man, there’s two talents that I think are gonna make it to the finals. And also to be frank, there’s two talents I want to make it to the finals, because I hate their freakin’ guts.”

First, Roddy “The Simp” Strong. Cole sighs and looks away as MJF says we all know that Roddy is faking the neck injury. MJF’s neck, yes, it is screwy. But if Roddy makes it through, then on September 20th at Grand Slam, MJF rips Roddy’s head off and shoves it straight up his ass!! Though frankly, Strong beat MJF to it with how he’s been acting. Strong is an incredibly manipulative person. Sorry, Adam. It’s just true. But Strong is a wet blanket and a third wheel, so if MJF were him, just shake it off, “ya bland b*tch.”

Second, Samoa Joe. Joe thinks MJF’s afraid of him? No way. MJF learned at a young age that it is not the size of the dog in the fight but the size of the fight in the dog! And Joe may not realize this, but this New York Pitbull’s got a whole lotta bite. Joe better pray to God he doesn’t win the tournament, because MJF is gonna make him a promise that is crystal clear. “If you wrestle me, I am going to choke you out. I repeat, if you wrestle me, I promise on my life I am going to CHOKE you out! And if you don’t believe me, let me get it through your thick, fat skull with some simple math.

“Normally, when you go one on one with another wrestler, you got a 50-50 chance o’ winning. But I’m the Genetic Freak and I’m not normal! So you got a 25% chance at best at beat me.” Cole and Renee put it together what MJF is referencing as he continues. “Then you add my boy, Cole, watching my back to the mix, your chances of winning drastic go down. See, our match at Grand Slam, you got a 33 and 1/3rd chance o’ winning, but I got a 66 and 2/3rd o’ winning, cuz everyone in New York knows you can’t be me. So Samoa Joe, you take your 33and 1/3rd chance o’ winning minus my 25% chance, and you got a 8 and 1/3rd chance of winning at Grand Slam.

“But then you take my 75% chance of winning since we’re wrestling in my home state of New York, and then you add 66 and 2/3rd percent chance, I got a 141 and 2/3rd percent chance of winning at Grand Slam. See, Joe? Numbers don’t lie, and they spell disaster for you in Arthur Ashe!” Cole adds “DISASTER!” and they both add, “Because we’re better than you, BAYBAY.” Brochacho fist bump. Will bringing up the past have an impact on how this tournament plays out?


Hangman Page VS Brian Cage w/ Prince Nana!

For the third time ever, The Cowboy and The Machine battle it out 1v1, but this is all because Swerve Strickland had to go and push Hangman’s buttons. Will the Cowboy get back on the horse and stampede all over Cage? Or will Cage make things much, much easier for Swerve?

The bell rings and Hangman rushes Cage with forearms! Cage hauls Hangman up to RAM him into a corner! And again, and again! Fans rally for “COWBOY SH*T!” but Cage CHOPS! And then clotheslines, clotheslines, and clotheslines again! Cage soaks up the heat, whips Hangman corner to corner, but runs into a BOOT! Hangman runs, but Cage blocks a boot to ROCK Hangman! And then he reels Hangman in, back suplex! Hangman lands on his feet to BOOT Cage! Hangman runs, BOOTS again, but Cage rebounds to run Hangman over! Fans boo but Cage keeps moving. Hangman drops, then he dumps Cage out!

Cage drags himself up but Hangman triangle jumps, only for Cage to duck the lariat! So Hangman just keeps going, and he triangle jumps again to LARIAT! Direct hit this time! Nana freaks out but fans fire up as Hangman grins. Hangman then aims to PLANCHA! Cage catches him!? Cage then POSTS Hangman, and pops him up, to POST- RANA!! Hangman remembered back to 2021 and turned it around on Cage! Cage falls, Hangman slips back into the ring, and fans fire up as he reloads to PLANCHA! Down goes Cage and fans fire up! The Cowboy catches his breath, and he stalks Cage to then push him into the ring.

Fans rally, Hangman hurries back in but Cage LARIATS! Cage turns things right back around fast and fans boo! Nana says to keep it up, and Cage CHOKES Hangman on ropes. The ref counts, Cage steps off, and Cage soaks up the heat. Cage runs, but Hangman swings! Cage ducks, pops Hangman up but Hangman RANAS Cage onto ropes! Fans fire up and Hangman dials it up! 619!! Or in this case, the 434, the area code of Halifax, Virginia! Cage staggers away, Hangman says he never tried that before. Nana coaches Cage, but then here comes Swerve! Hangman sighs, Nana breaks it down to the song, band Cage SUPERKICKS Hangman!

Cage goes to the corner, drags Hangman up, deadlift GERMAN SUPLEX! Fans boo as Hangman flops out of the ring and Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Swerve scowls as Hangman writhes, and Cage goes out to fetch the Cowboy. Cage talks trash then rains down fists! Cage drags Hangman up, RAMS him into railing, and Hangman falls over in a heap. Cage refreshes the ring count, Nana talks some trash, and Cage stands on Hangman’s face! The ref counts but Cage lets off to put Hangman back in the ring. Cage paces around Hangman, drags him up, but Hangman throws hands! Hangman ROCKS Cage but Cage BOOTS Hangman! Hangman ends up on ropes, Cage CHOKES Him some more, but the ref counts. Cage lets off at 4, KICKS the ropes to jam Hangman up, and the ref reprimands again.

Cage drags Hangman up while Swerve is still frowning on stage. Cage CHOPS Hangman in the corner, ROCKS him, then CHOPS him again. Cage sits Hangman down with a leg sweep, then he runs side to side to BOOT WASH! Cage drags Hangman out to a cover, TWO! Hangman is still in this but Cage clamps on a chinlock. Hangman endures as Cage leans on Hangman with all his weight. Fans rally up, Hangman fights to his feet, and Hangman throws body shots! Hangman throws forearms but Cage knees low! Cage ROCKS Hangman, and stalks him to ropes as Dynamite returns to single picture.

Cage whips Hangman, Hangman KICKS back, and then runs, but into a clinch! FULL NELSON SLAM! Cover, TWO!! Hangman survives and Cage is furious! Swerve doesn’t look happy, either, but the fans boo Cage as he paces around. Cage drags Hangman up but Hangman throws body shots. Cage ROCKS Hangman, Hangman ROCKS Cage, repeat! Fans rally behind Hangman as the forearms fly, and Cage gets the edge! Cage whips, Hangman slides under the boot to BOOT back! Hangman runs, but Cage POWERSLAMS! Cage then somersaults to the corner, MOONSAULT FLOP as Hangman moves!

Fans fire up and Swerve looks even more upset as both men are down. A standing count starts, Cage rises at 4 of 10 and he storms over to Hangman. Hangman ROCKS Cage, Cage ROCKS Hangman! Fans fire up with Hangman as he storms up but Cage ROCKS him again! Cage eggs Hangman on and Hangman fires off fists! Hangman whips, Cage reverses but Hangman ducks and clotheslines Cage and himself up and out of the ring! Hangman hurries up to the corner, and then climbs! Fans fire up as Cage stands, but he slides in first. Hangman adjusts to CROSSBODY, but Cage catches him again! Cage does curls, then he tosses Hangman, but Hangman CRUCIFIX DRIVERS!!

Cage hits railing, then Hangman goes up the corner! Cage staggers over, for the ARIHARA MOONSAULT!! Direct hit and Hangman hurries to get Cage in! Hangman goes up the corner one more time, for a CROSSBODY! Cage falls this time and Hangman covers, TWO! Cage is still in this but Swerve is still stoically seething. Cage and Hangman rise, fans fire up and Hangman Alabama Lifts! Cage CLUBS free, to GERMAN SUPLEX!

Hangman flops to the apron and Cage storms over. Cage drags Hangman up, “This is Awesome!” and Cage brings Hangman up. Deadlift- NO! Hangman fights the suplex to ROCK Cage! Cage holds on to the ropes but Hangman throws more shots! Then he TRIPS Cage! Fans fire up as Hangman loads up, but has to BOOT Cage first! Then BUCKSHOT- Fireman’s carry!! F5- CRADLE!!! Cover, TWO!!! Cage escapes, spins, but Hangman dodges to Alabama Lift! DEADEYE!!! Cover, Hangman wins!!

Winner: Hangman Page, by pinfall

Swerve is still not happy. Hangman finally breaks the tie with Cage, and now he might have relit that fire Swerve said he was missing. Hangman gets the mic to say, “What passion! What drive! Just oozing out of your body tonight, Swerve, as you just brood at the top of the ramp and watch me kick this oaf’s ass” Last week, Swerve said he wanted Hangman’s spot. So that’s why Swerve sent Cage to fight Hangman instead of doing it himself. And last week, for just one second, when Swerve said some of those things, Hangman thought that Swerve had some balls. After tonight, we see Swerve is just keeping those stored away in Nana’s Burger King crown.

Swerve brings out a mic of his own, and he says, “What up, turd? Them sound like fighting words to me, Hangman.” Hangman thinks this little thing between them is gonna be soft? Then he must be dumber than the Cincinnati educational system. Fans boo but Swerve says they do this when HE says, and where he says! And it just so happens that Swerve is choosing the great state that birthed good ol’ Swerve Strickland. October 1st, in Seattle, Washington, AKA Whose House? SWERVE’S HOUSE! AEW WrestleDream! But uh… Swerve will make sure Hangman doesn’t get comfortable, so the Embassy’s gonna “tune you up.” Ain’t that right, boys?

Cage gets up to CLOBBER Hangman! Nana helps stomp Hangman, then Cage rains down fists! Swerve grins while fans boo, and Nana breaks it down again. But in comes The Young Bucks! They DOUBLE SUPERKICK Cage! Nana doesn’t realize it, so the Bucks mock his dance moves. Nana turns around, sees the Bucks, and gets DOUBLE SUPERKICKS for himself! Swerve is upset again as The Elite stands together! Will Matt & Nick Jackson have Hangman’s back against the Mogul Embassy’s host of behemoths?


Backstage interview with Daniel Garcia.

Renee is now with the Dragonslayer, and brings up what we heard from Jericho and Sammy. Daniel says he doesn’t wanna interrupt, but he just has to right here. He thought this was going to be about him, but just like everyone else, she’s asking about Jericho and Sammy. Why not talk about how the Arizona Cardinals were doing his dance after getting a sack? How about how Garcia went viral four times over in one month? Why not talk about the career Daniel Garcia is making?

Don Callis walks in and he says he’d love to hear about that career. Because Callis knows from being Jericho’s best friend for 34 years, that when you’re around Jericho, it is all about him. Jericho is the ultimate narcissist. But the Don Callis Family is aiming to create “a utopian meritocracy, whereby each member, for themselves-” Garcia stops Callis there. And does his dance! Garcia leaves, Callis says that’s money right there, let’s get that money! Well, wait. Was that Garcia saying yes to the DCF? Or saying no to it all?


BREAKING NEWS for Rampage!

After an impactful return at Collision last Saturday, Jade Cargill is back and she wants her belt! Will she reestablish herself as #ThatBitch? Or will The Galaxy’s Greatest refuse to let her reign be taken down by the woman she dethroned? Plus, the AEW World Trios Champions, The Acclaimed & Billy Gunn, are in action, will the Scissor World Tour keep on rolling through Ohio? Plus, ROH invades Rampage as Christopher Daniels & Matt Sydal take on The Kingdom in tag team action! And then, in a huge 8 Man Tag, The Lucha Brothers team with The Hardy Boyz to settle things with Jeff Jarrett, Jay Lethal, The Butcher & The Blade!


Darby Allin & Nick Wayne VS Matthew Menard & Angelo Parker w/ Jake Hager & Anna Jay!

The Relentless One lost his match in the Grand Slam World Title Eliminator, all because Christian Cage used emotions against him. But will Darby & Nick rebound together to show Captain Charisma hasn’t won yet? Or will Daddy Magic & Cool Hand Ange give them just a taste of that sports… enner-tainment?

The teams sort out and Nick starts against Parker. They circle, feel things out, then tie up. Parker powers Nick back but Nick turns it around to put Parker on ropes. Fans rally for “DADDY MAGIC!” while Nick lets off slowly on Parker. Fans rally, but wait! Christian Cage’s music hits! Fans boo as Captain Charisma and his Right Hand of Destruction walk out on stage, and Parker uses that distraction to CLOBBER Nick! Parker rains down elbows, then he stands Nick up to ROCK him with a haymaker. Christian joins commentary while Parker scoops Nick. Nick slips free, he hobbles, but Parker BULLDOGS him first!

Parker tags Nick, they put Nick in the corner and stomp away! Fans are torn as they stomp mudholes, but then Menard hits a BACKBREAKER! Menard sucker punches Darby off the apron, then drags Nick up to bump off buckles. Tag to Parker, and then Parker throws body shots. Parker brings Nick around, says he’s having one hell of a hair day, then he snap suplexes! Cover, TWO! Parker brings Nick up, tags in Menard, and then Parker whips Nick into the corner. Menard whips Parker in, Nick goes up and over but Menard catches him! Menard throws Nick back, Nick fakes Menard high to go low, but Menard grabs a leg!

Nick stands, ENZIGURIS free, but Anna distracts the ref so Hager can YANK Darby down and CLOBBER him! Fans are torn but Menard stomps Nick, to POWERBOMB him! Menard fires up and Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Menard drags Nick back up, bumps him off buckles, and Nick sits down. Menard throws knees in, the ref counts, but Menard lets off at 4. Menard tags Parker, they put Nick on ropes and CHOKE him! The ref reprimands, Menard bumps Nick off Parker’s boot! Parker & Menard distract the ref so even Hager can CHOKE Nick! Parker drags Nick up, brings him around and CHOPS him to a corner. Nick is stinging but Parker throws hands. Nick counter punches! Nick ROCKS Parker again and again, but Parker ELBOWS Darby, then CLOBBERS Nick! Parker drags Nick over, tags in Menard, and they mug Nick.

Menard whips Nick to ropes, but Nick sunset flips! Menard stays up, and he CLUBS Nick down! Menard stomps Nick around, then he tags Parker. They CHOKE Nick on ropes again while we get a glimpse of Christian more than likely besmirching the name of the late Buddy Wayne. Parker drags Nick up but Nick holds ropes, so Parker CLUBS him down. Parker reels Nick in for a BIG back suplex! Cover, TWO! Parker is annoyed but he drags Nick around, smothers him, and then stomps him! Tag to Menard, he drags Nick from the corner to cover, TWO! Another cover, TWO! Menard SLAPS Nick, then SLAPS him again and again!

Menard talks trash, drags Nick up and wrenches, then tags Parker. They mug Nick, Parker DECKS him, and then warps on a chinlock. Dynamite returns to single picture and fans rally up. Nick endures as Parker leans on him, and Nick fights up to throw body shots! Nick fights free, but Parker RAMS him into the corner! Christian says Nick is getting picked apart. “You gotta wonder if he had a better mentor, how things might be different.” Parker tags Menard, they double whip Nick, but Nick holds ropes! Parker runs in, Nick TOSSES him out, then UPPERCUTS Menard! Nick UPPERCUTS again and down goes Menard!

Parker slides in from the other side but Nick hurdles over, hot tag to Darby! Fans rally as Darby ducks, springboards and DOUBLE COFFIN SPLASHES Menard & Parker! Darby fires up, he has Menard & Parker in opposite corners, so he runs in to COFFIN SPLASH Menard, then COFFIN SPLASH Parker! And repeat! Darby eggs Menard on, then sends him into Parker, so he can SHOTGUN them both! Fans fire up with Darby and he dodges Parker to fire off fast hands and a HEADBUTT! Then CODE RED! Cover, TWO!! Parker is still in this for his team but Darby hurries to BOOT Menard! Parker kicks low, and reels Darby in.

Parker suplexes but Darby slips free to waistlock. Parker elbows free and switches, but Nick tags in before the O’Conner! Nick goes up and up, WAYNE’S WORLD!! Cover, Menard drags Nick outta the ring! Fans are torn but Darby takes aim, to DIVE onto Daddy Magic! Darby hurries up, tags Nick back in, and Darby goes up! Nick also goes up, they each take aim, ARIHARA MOONSAULT onto Menard & Hager while Darby hits the COFFIN DROP on Parker!! Cover, Darby & Nick win!!

Winners: Darby Allin & Nick Wayne, by pinfall

Christian is annoyed for the former Jericho Appreciation Society. He says he’s sick and tired of this, so he gets off commentary and gets a mic. Christian sarcastically says that was a “very impressive” victory for them. But Cincinnati, Christian is conducting business, so sit down and shut your mouths. Nick, after Christian went home last week, he was scrolling through his mom’s Instagram, and there were a few things that bothered him. The first: she doesn’t post enough bikini pics. But don’t worry, Christian sent her a special request on the side. But the other thing is that there is still a lot of talk about Darby Allin and Sting winning at All In London!

Fans cheer that but Christian says all that is pissing him off! “As the franchise player here, I gotta say, it’s kind of embarrassing. Not losing-to-the-Cleveland-Browns embarrassing, but embarrassing none the less.” Fans boo the jab at the Bengals, but Christian continues to say that as a reminder: he did NOT take the loss at All In; and Christian didn’t have his regular partner, now did he? So Christian thinks it is time to right that wrong. Next week, Arthur Ashe Stadium, Grand Slam, Christian is proposing this: Darby Allin & Sting VS Christian Cage and “the most complete big man in the business,” Luchasaurus! If Darby has the balls, then he’ll see you in New York!

Fans boo as Captain Charisma & Luchasaurus leave. Will the Relentless Icons have one more match in them? Furthermore, will they come out on top?


AEW Grand Slam World Title Eliminator Tournament Finals: Roderick Strong w/ The Kingdom VS Samoa Joe!

As if there isn’t enough animosity between these two given their own past, Maxwell Jacob Friedman added fuel to the fire by calling them both out. Bad neck or not, Samoa Joe is a dangerous opponent, will the Savior of the Backbreaker break through to then break MJF? Or will the ROH World Television Champion be too strong for Strong?

The bell rings and fans sing, “Joe is gonna kill~ you!” Joe and Roddy circle, tie up, and Joe wrenches an arm and wristlocks. Joe HEADBUTTS the hand to jam up the wrist and arm, but Roddy goes to the ROPEBREAK! The ref counts, Roddy protests, and Joe lets off. The two reset, they circle and tie up again. Joe SHOVES Roddy away and Roddy flounders out of the ring. The Kingdom is there to coach him up, and they tell Joe to be careful with the neck. The ref starts the ring count, Roddy storms up but Joe meets him at the ropes, so Roddy backs away. The ref has Joe stand down, and Roddy returns.

Roddy and Joe circle, tie up, and Roddy goes for a leg. Joe THROWS Roddy away again! Roddy bails out to throw a fit but Taven calms him down. Joe waits patiently, and Roddy goes around the way while Bennett coaches him up. Fans rally for “JOE! JOE! JOE!” and Joe goes out after Roddy! Roddy runs away into the ring, and he CLBOBERS Joe on the return! Fans boo but Roddy COHPS Joe against ropes. And CHOPS again! Joe staggers, Roddy CLUBS him, then CLUBS him again! Roddy ROCKS Joe, runs, but Joe CLOBBERS Roddy! Fans fire up while Roddy writhes, and Joe stalks him to a corner.

Joe waits on Roddy to stand, and he JABS! JABS! And JABS! Fans fire up, the ref counts, Joe JABS until Roddy sits down! Joe then lets off with a smirk while Roddy flounders again. Joe CHOPS Roddy, Roddy staggers away but he comes back to CHOP! Joe CHOPS again, Roddy CHOPS again, fans “WOO~!” with each one, and Dynamite goes picture in picture.

The CHOPS keep going, but then Joe HEADBUTTS Roddy down! Joe storms up to Roddy in the corner, ROCKS him, JABS him, then fires JABS high and low! Joe just hammers Roddy, then CHOKES him in the ropes! The ref reprimands, counts, but Joe DECKS Roddy out of the ring! Taven is there to help Roddy up and The Kingdom again protests. Roddy slowly returns, Joe storms up but Roddy RAMS into him! Roddy BOOTS, runs in and CHOPS, but Joe just scowls. Roddy CHOPS again, but Joe DECKS him! Joe HEADBUTTS Roddy, follows him to a corner, then snapmares him to CHOP him on the neck! And then PENALTY KICK! And ELBOW DROP!

Fans fire up, The Kingdom coaches Roddy, but Joe looms over Roddy. Joe sits Roddy up for a neck wrench! Roddy endures, flails, but Joe thrashes him around! The Kingdom is furiously protesting but there’s nothing they can do! Roddy manages to pry free, and he BOOTS Joe from below! Joe goes to a corner, Roddy runs up and he ROCKS Joe! And CHOPS! And stomps! Joe still glares at Roddy, and he CHOPS! And CHOPS! And CHOPS! Joe CHOPS Roddy into sitting in the corner, then he lets off to bring Roddy back up. Joe kicks Roddy, JABS, and ELBOWS him back down! Then Joe stands Roddy up again, to KNEE him low!

Roddy staggers away but Joe storms up to JAB, JAB and ELBOW again! Joe CHOKES Roddy on ropes as Dynamite returns to single picture! The ref counts, The Kingdom is furious, but Joe lets off at 4. Roddy falls back into a corner, but Joe eggs Roddy on. Roddy drags himself up but Joe is on him. Roddy KNEES low! And again! And throws ELBOWS! Roddy BOOTS Joe down! Fans rally, Roddy runs and he BOOTS Joe down again! Cover, ONE!! Joe is up but Roddy clamps on with a chinlock! Joe endures now as Roddy squeezes tight. Fans rally, Joe fights up, and Joe throws body shots. Joe whips Roddy to a corner, runs in, but into a BOOT!

Roddy goes up, leaps, MISSILE DROPKICK! Roddy hurries to cover, TWO! The Kingdom coaches Roddy and he pushes Joe around, to stomp Joe on his back! Roddy sits Joe up to use a neck wrench of his own! Fans rally, Roddy tells them to shut up, but Joe fights to his feet. Joe throws body shots, but Roddy CHOPS! Roddy runs, but Joe hits an ATOMIC DROP, then a BOOT! And a SENTON! Cover, TWO! Roddy survives but Joe keeps his cool. Joe drags Roddy up but Roddy knees low! And CHOPS! Roddy runs, but into a POWERSLAM! Cover, TWO!! Roddy survives and now Joe is annoyed.

Joe drags Roddy up, reels him in, and fans rally up as Joe lifts Roddy up. Roddy slips out the back, BOOTS Joe, then ENZIGURIS! Roddy runs to FOREARM! And FOREARM! And FOREARM again! Joe falls and Roddy hurries to run in, SHINING WIZARD in the corner! But Joe CLUBS away on Roddy to fight the lift! Joe whips but Roddy LEAPING LARIATS! Cover, TWO! Roddy grows frustrated but he pushes Joe around. Roddy gets the legs, but Joe fights the turnover! Roddy powers up, but Joe BOOTS him away! Joe runs in, misses in the corner, and Roddy returns, into the URENAGE! Fans fire up as Joe feels it now!

Joe puts Roddy in a corner, puts him up top, but Bennett gets on the apron! Joe CLOBBERS him for it! But Roddy hops down, to hit an OLYMPIC SLAM!! And then a SICK KICK!! Cover, TWO!!! Joe survives and Roddy is furious! Fans rally for Joe as Roddy goes to the corner. Roddy aims, runs back in, but into a LARIAT!! Joe drags Roddy into the COQUINA CLUTCH!!! Roddy is caught, he TAPS! JOE WINS!

Winner: Samoa Joe, by submission (NEW #1 Contender to the AEW World Championship)

The Kingdom hurries to brace Roddy’s neck again, but now we have our title match! Joe gets the mic to say, “Oh, Maaax~! It seems my little prophecy has come true. And next week, I go to your backyard, and I’m coming for you. Because I’m gonna walk you down, I’m gonna beat you up, and I’m gonna take everything you have, kid. Everything.” The One True King of Wrestling Television has spoken, will he soon reign over two kingdoms?

As for Roddy, he stands up, the Kingdom tells him to put on the neck brace, but here comes Adam Cole! Roddy then plays like his neck is suddenly killing him! Maybe MJF is right about the faking and manipulating? Cole is sure confused, and the medics double check Roddy. The Kingdom say this is all Cole’s fault, and here comes a backboard and stretcher! The medics put a new brace on Roddy’s neck, refs calm The Kingdom down as they yell at Cole, and then the medics slide Roddy out of the ring with the board and put him on the stretcher. Roddy keeps calling for “ADAM~!” but The Kingdom say he’s done enough.

The arguing continues between the mutual friends of Roddy, and Roddy is wheeled out of the arena. Fans applaud, hoping Roddy really is okay, but The Kingdom keep trying to block Cole out as if this is all his fault. But then Joe grabs Cole! COQUINA CLUTCH!!! Joe shouts “EVERYTHING, MAX! EVERYTHING!! I’M TAKING EVERYTHING FROM YOU!!!” Joe chokes out Cole!!! Joe is a rabid beast, does MJF stand any chance of surviving Grand Slam?

My Thoughts:

A great Dynamite here to give some go-home stuff to Grand Slam next week. Great International Championship to open the show, as has been the trend. Moxley bleeding first, he is Face again, which fits the story given Bryan returned Face and the BCC is battling Heel Starks & Bill. Though Claudio can be more a Tweener still since he and Eddie have their story to settle. Great interaction between the BCC and the group of Eddie & Lucha Brothers, too, for that matter. Pretty sure Bryan & Claudio win, probably bringing Bill down so Starks isn’t hurt in the loss, and also so Claudio has momentum going into the Winner Takes All match with Eddie. And I think Eddie wins, he can have both belts going back and forth between ROH TV and NJPW Strong tapings.

Having the Women’s Fatal 4 so early was a good move to give it time to breathe. Great showing from all four women but I figured Storm would snatch this one away. Shida and Britt didn’t quite get into it as much as I thought they would, but they’ve got time to build that towards WrestleDream. Good promo from Saraya & Soho, Saraya VS Storm is going to be a lot of fun, can’t wait to see how that one turns out. And Kris Statlander VS Jade Cargill already set for this week’s Rampage is a surprise. That’s the fastest build-to-blowoff I’ve seen Tony Khan give a women’s division feud. There’s a good chance interference or some other disqualification happens, because this is another case of Tony booking big names into corners.

Great promo from Jericho and Sammy, including a fun little video package. I like that they were very respectful, and then really serious. I feel like this is the time for Jericho to put Sammy over to then add to his own woes of being on a losing streak. It feels like they’ll still try to be Le Sex Gods in the tag division, but the team probably still falls apart. Really good promo, though a touch disturbing in some ways, from Don Callis to share what’s next for him and Konosuke, and I should’ve realized he’d target Ibushi for his connection to Kenny. Konosuke VS Ibushi is going to be awesome stuff, but I would think Ibushi makes it harder than Callis expects to “kill” him.

And good interaction of Callis and Garcia, but I feel like the dance was a “No.” Callis will still probably try to recruit him, though, and honestly, Garcia should change tactics. We just saw Menard & Parker lose to Darby & Nick, even with Hager & Anna there helping. Christian being so crass about Nick’s mom was somewhat funny, while Christian challenging Darby to another tag match is a bit surprising. I almost thought he was teasing Adam “Edge” Copeland coming to AEW there, but Christian & Luchasaurus VS Darby & Sting will still be a good match, and Nick Wayne might end up another liability. Or he turns…!

Great match from Hangman VS Cage, though at a certain point, they should’ve given us like, picture in picture of Swerve’s scowling face and the action in the ring so they wouldn’t have to cut over so many times. Good promo from Hangman and Swerve after the match, and great save by The Bucks. I feel like the #HungBucks are gonna ride again to take on Cage, Kaun & Liona. Don’t put the ROH World Six Man Tag titles on the line, though, because then The Elite will have those belts when no one in ROH could take those off the Embassy. Hangman VS Swerve makes WrestleDream even bigger after already having Bryan VS ZSJ.

Great promo from MJF, but that’s standard. I cannot believe, and really love, that MJF busted out a remix of Steiner Math just to get on Samoa Joe’s nerves. The looks on Cole’s and Renee’s faces when he started on that was great, too. And of course, great match from Strong VS Joe, that’s why this was the right move to make. Joe wins, of course, to have the match with MJF, but then what great stuff after the match, too. Roddy flopped on a level worthy of soccer, and Cole still fell for it. I feel like The Kingdom has to be in on this to keep up the illusion, and then what a wild way to close it out with Joe choking Cole out. There’s a lot of heat going into the world title match, Cole might have a hard time holding himself back from attacking Joe during.

My Score: 8.8/10

But Eddie elbows free, only for Claudio to back suplex Eddie to the ramp! The LED Plexiglas ramp is a stiff worker, and Claudio looms over Eddie. Eddie is dazed and the fans rally up behind him.

Claudio then clotheslines Eddie back into the ring! Fans boo as Claudio climbs the corner. But Eddie rolls to the corner, only for Claudio to DIVING DOUBLE STOMP anyway! Claudio stomps Eddie, drags him up, and scoop SLAMS him! Claudio goes back up, to then DIVING HEADBUTT but FLOPS as Eddie moves! Eddie staggers up, but into an UPPERCUT! Cover, TWO!! Eddie is still in this and Claudio is fuming as Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Claudio and Eddie go to ropes, and then Claudio storms over. Claudio CLUBS away on Eddie at the ropes, then he drags Eddie up. Eddie pushes Claudio away but Claudio reels Eddie in. Claudio suplexes but Eddie blocks! Claudio throws body shots, tries again, but Eddie still blocks! Eddie then suplexes Claudio up and over! Fans fire up while both men flounder.

Claudio SLIDING LARIATS! Cover, ROPEBREAK!! Eddie reaches out in time!

Claudio sits Eddie up and clamps on with a top wristlock chinlock combo! Fans rally up as Eddie endures being squeezed and twisted around. But then Claudio KICKS Eddie in the back, and STOMPS the hand! Then he STOMPS the other hand! Eddie clutches fingers, but Claudio drags Eddie up by an ear. Eddie CHOPS! And CHOPS! Dynamite returns to single picture as Claudio eggs Eddie on. Eddie CHPOS, Claudio fires UPPERCUT after UPPERCUT in the corner! Claudio sits Eddie down, the ref back shim off, but then Claudio fireman’s carries! T K O! Cover, TWO!! Fans are thunderous as Eddie hangs in there!

Claudio scuffs Eddie again, and that riles Eddie up. Claudio gives more toying kicks, then some harder shots. Eddie pounds the mat and fans fire up with him! Claudio kick sand kicks and kicks, and Eddie wobbles, only to sit up again. Claudio drags Eddie up to UPPER- NO, BACKSLIDE! TWO! Eddie ENZIGURIS! And then an EXPLODER!! Eddie has Claudio again, for a SAIDO! Cover, TWO! Claudio goes to a corner, Yuta coaches him, and Claudio sees Eddie go to the far side. Eddie runs in to clothesline! Eddie fires up and fires off MACHINE GUN CHOPS!! Claudio just brushes those off? Eddie CHOPS and CHOPS, then JABS! Claudio drops to a knee and fans are thunderous!

Eddie hauls Claudio up, Claudio fights the Northern Lights Bomb, so Eddie fires Kawada knees! Claudio JABS back! Eddie staggers, Claudio shakes out the cobwebs, and then both men stare down again.

Winner: Eddie Kingston, by pinfall (still NJPW Strong Openweight & NEW ROH World Champion)

He has done it! The Mad King has conquered Claudio and now reigns over two kingdoms! Yuta tells Claudio that yes, it really did happen. Yuta helps Claudio to his feet, and Eddie keeps his eyes on them. Claudio offers a handshake, and Eddie… accepts it! Claudio hands the ROH title over then takes his leave. Fans chant “You Deserve It!” and that is an understatement. How much more history will be made by Eddie Kingston now?


The Kingdom visits Roderick Strong in the hospital.

This was recorded sometime last week after Dynamite. Matt Taven & Mike Bennett sit by Roddy’s bedside as the nurse fluffs Roddy’s pillow. Mike says they wanted to invite everyone here so they could personally thank everyone for all the gifts and cards. Taven likes this card here. “I hope it makes your day brighter knowing how much everyone cares. Your attention to neck health awareness has been inspirational, and one day, I hope to be as neck strong as you. XOXO Olga.” Mike excuses the nurse and then Adam Cole visits. Roddy calls out to Adam and asks where he is, he can’t see. Then open your eyes.

Roddy does open his eyes and is happy to see Cole is here. Of course he is, he wouldn’t miss this for the world. Cole then says hi to The Kingdom and they ask him where he’s been. He got here as quick as he could. Oh, convenient, Cole shows up just as The Kingdom has to leave. Mike tells Roddy sorry, they gotta go. They’re going to be the new #1 Contenders to the ROH World Tag Titles. Roddy understands. He knows they don’t need it, but good luck. New champs coming soon. Taven then insults Cole’s shirt and pants. Is that how he dresses when he’s mourning? Cole says that’s real appropriate to say.

Cole then tells Roddy that he is glad Roddy is doing okay, and Cole hates to do this but he has to leave soon, too. Max has the world title match with Samoa Joe, and after what happened all last week, Cole has to make sure Max will be okay. Roddy says who cares! What about him? Cole wants Roddy to know he loves him, but Max is the one in danger. Roddy makes the bed sit up so he can look at Cole properly, just so he can tell Cole to go. Then Roddy lowers himself back down. Will Cole be able to help MJF through whatever is coming?


Backstage interview with Christian Cage & Luchasaurus.

Renee Paquette is with Captain Charisma and the AEW TNT Champion to bring up that this Friday, Rampage: Grand Slam, it will be Darby Allin & Sting taking on these two in a tag team match. Obviously, Christian & Luchasaurus have a ton of experience- Christian cuts Renee off to say they have a ton of experience in defending the TNT Championship. And at Rampage: Grand Slam, Christian & Luchasaurus walk through Darby & Sting, and then move on from them. But obviously, Darby isn’t going to move on until he gets another chance at Christian’s- er, their TNT Championship!

So here’s a proposition: Saturday on Collision, Darby VS Christian VS Luchasaurus in a Triple Threat for the TNT Championship! Sound good to Darby? Oh, and one more little wrinkle: if Darby wants his shot, then Sting is not allowed at ringside! And when Darby steps into the ring for their Handicap- er, Triple Threat… Then Darby has as much a chance of winning this championship as both the Yankees and the Mets! ZERO! As for Friday, bring your boy. Christian & Luchasaurus head out, will they dominate this entire week?

For the first time ever, The Ocho and the Spanish God go 1v1 with each other! They’re both ready to fight harder than they ever have before, but who will come out on top?

Sammy’s entrance has him wearing an LED vest as a reference to all of Jericho’s light up jackets, and Sammy even has Monteasy live to rap the theme song! Is this Sammy’s time to take flight? Or will he be unable to get off the ground with Judas in his mind?

Winner: Chris Jericho, by pinfall

Sammy gambled and just got busted! Jericho wins, proving why he is the master and Sammy is the apprentice. But the real question is, can these two still be friends? Jericho offers a hand, Sammy accepts, and they hug it out! Fans cheer as Le Sex Gods stick together! But then Sammy LOW BLOWS Jericho?! Jericho falls against Sammy but Sammy shoves him down! And here comes Don Callis?! No, Sammy, no! But Don pats Sammy on the shoulder. Don threw his friendship with Jericho away, and now takes away Jericho’s last friend! Will the Spanish God soon be a wrestling god thanks to the Don Callis Family?


MJF & Adam Cole pull into the parking lot.

The brochachos pull up in an emerald green Porsche, and as he steps out of the car, Maxwell Jacob Friedman calls out Samoa Joe! “I’ve been holding a grudge against you for eight long years. And when you decided to shove me, I took that and I turned it into a little ball, and I put that chip on my shoulder. And tonight, I take that chip and I bash your skull in! See, it was bad enough when you shoved me. But you took, and you took, and you took, and you tried to take away the two things now that are most precious to me: you are trying to take away my AEW World Championship, and you are trying to hurt my brother, Adam Cole.”

That is where Joe messed up. Tonight, MJF will choke Joe out in front of thousands of New Yorkers, MJF’s people! And the last thing Joe is gonna hear as he fades out is… “M! J! F! M! J! F!” Because they’re better than you, and Cole gets a call? It’s Roddy? Seriously? He’s upset but Cole wants him to talk it out. Cole says he still has MJF’s back but this is an emergency. Roddy, relax, you are not gonna die! Cole heads out to talk with Roddy about his neck, and MJF tells Joe, “Your ass is mine.” Will the ROH World Television Champion look to change that with his own two hands?


Backstage interview with Don Callis & Sammy Guevara.

Renee walks up to ask them if this all but confirms that Sammy has joined the Don Callis Family, but Don says not to cut her off, “but all will be revealed this Friday on Rampage. C’mon, kid, we got a lot to celebrate.” The two traitors head out, but then cross paths with Daniel Garcia! Sammy and Danny stare down, and then Sammy asks if he has something to say. Don has Sammy stand down and says Danny is money. For now, the two of them will go. Don gets Sammy outta there, but what are Danny’s feelings? He left the JAS, but is he upset Sammy joined the DCF?

Death Triangle regains the gold once held by The Bastard, will Fenix blaze his own trail with this title? As for Moxley, he is getting checked by medics, what condition will he be in after such an epic fight?


Samoa Joe speaks.

“Oh Maaaax~! You feel it, Max? The night is upon us, a great celebration! Tonight is a night of consequences. And Max, you have run your mouth, you have made your angst known, you have told the world you’ve harbored your grudge against me for eight years.” But MJF better be prepared to hold onto that grudge a little longer, because Joe will smash him from pillar to post, in front of MJF’s people! And tonight, Joe finishes taking what he was trying to take from MJF all those years ago. But it won’t be MJF’s future, it’ll be his championship. We’ve already seen the landscape shift, will the One True King of Wrestling Television add to that?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see who is the real star of the AEW Women’s Division!

It’s the moment of truth! After watching the Grand Slam World Title Eliminator Tournament, Maxwell Jacob Friedman was very… happy(?) to see that the King of Wrestling TV won the right to have this match. MJF threw some Steiner math at Joe but now it’s time to put it to the test! Will the hometown antihero finally have his revenge? Or will we soon be calling him #TwoBeltJoe?

MJF’s entrance is an homage to Bret Hart and Mean Joe Greene. A kid shouts out to MJF, tells him to go get ’em, champ, and then MJF nods and gives the kid his scarf. And also whispers something before heading out. What’d he say? That the kid’s adopted?! Anyway… The introductions are made, the Triple B is raised, and we see who finishes Dynamite with a Grand Slam!

MJF learned that one from his brochacho! But Joe stays up, so MJF short arm LARIATS!

Joe is still up so MJF LARIATS again! Joe is still up, so MJF runs to LARIAT! That takes as much out of MJF as it does Joe, but fans are thunderous as MJF goes again. Joe LARIATS MJF down!!

Joe then drags MJF back to his feet, runs, and LARI- NO, MJF slips through, reels Joe in, and manages a POWERBOMB?!?! Cover, TWO!!!!

The fans are electric as both men are down! “This is Awesome!” as Joe and MJF stir! Joe sits up, as does MJF. They stand, and Joe CHOPS! Joe runs, but MJF ROCKS him with a forearm! Joe CHOPS, but MJF seethes to forearm! They go shot for shot, MJF SUPERKICKS! Joe ROCKS MJF! And again, and again, and again! Joe runs one more time, but MJF gets around to a SLEEPER! But Joe gets around, to a COQUINA! MJF grabs at the ref, and then LOW BLOW MULE KICKS in the distraction!! Fans fire up as MJF gets away from Joe. MJF then gets his Dynamite Diamond Ring out! MJF gives it a kiss and puts it on the pinkie!

MJF runs in, but Joe puts the ref in the way! The ref sees the diamond ring and confiscates it! Then Joe LOW BLOWS MJF!! Joe puts MJF up top, tuck shim in, MUSCLE BUSTER!!!! Cover, TWO?!?!?! HOW?!?!? Joe can’t even explain it!! The fans are volcanic as Joe drags MJF back up, into a SLEEPER!! MJF flails, reaches out, but Joe is leaning on him! The hand falls once! But wait! Here comes Adam Cole!! Cole coaches MJF on but the hand falls twice! Cole pounds the mat, fans rally up even harder, and MJF comes back to life!! MJF fights up and again Joe can’t explain it! MJF stands to BITE the arm!!

Joe lets go, MJF victory rolls! TWO!! MJF hurries to have a SLEEPER of his own!! Joe fights up, and he RAMS MJF into a corner! The ref had to bail out to avoid the impact! Cole distracts Joe on the apron, MJF undoes some wrist tape, and MJF CHOKES Joe with the wrist tape garrote!!! MJF hides it inside the sleeper!! The ref revives, MJF has Joe in body scissors!! The ref checks, Joe is OUT! MJF wins!!

Winner: MJF, by submission (still AEW World Champion)

MJF hides the evidence in his armpit, but then it falls out as the ref raises his hand in victory! MJF keeps the ref distracted and Cole takes care of truly hiding the evidence. MJF and Cole hug to celebrate, Cole had MJF’s back in the end. But Joe knows it, and he shoves Cole! MJF gets in the way to keep this from getting worse. Joe snarls, but he offers a handshake? MJF is wary, he knows all the tricks in the book, but fans want to see it. MJF takes the handshake, and there is now respect instead of a grudge. Will the One True King of Wrestling Television have to settle for defending his one crown?

As for the brochachos, they stand together with all their belts! The medics still check with MJF, that neck has to be killing him. With both the AEW World Championship and the ROH World Tag Team Championship around his waist, how long can MJF keep this up?

My Thoughts:

An awesome Dynamite for Grand Slam 2023, with the right balance of action and talking. A little surprised they didn’t open with the International Championship, but the Winner Takes All match was a great choice all the same. The right choice was made here with Eddie winning the ROH World Championship. Claudio doesn’t have to worry about going to ROH tapings when he only did so rarely, and Eddie can go back and forth between ROH and NJPW Strong, just as I’ve been saying since this match was teased. Then speaking of the International Championship, it was awesome stuff, but clearly, there was something along the lines of a concussion there with Moxley. Fenix wasn’t supposed to win, but winning the title given the injury makes sense. And hopefully Moxley is alright.

Jericho VS Sammy was great, and it was very surprising that Jericho won clean. But in the end, that’s because Sammy was gonna turn on him and join Don Callis! I like that Daniel Garcia’s part in this story is to now be the one member of the former JAS that left Jericho behind, who might now return to his side. Garcia VS Guevara is going to be great stuff, and at least there’s now more than two people in the Don Callis Family. Still waiting on Kota Ibushi responding to Don & Konosuke claiming they’re gonna end his career.

Really good promo from Christian Cage & Luchasaurus, but uh, isn’t having a TNT Championship match on Collision after the Rampage tag match a little too soon? Though, given Christian is only making such a match so he and Luchasaurus can beat down Darby and one of them still has the title is definitely more TV programming than PPV programming. Then maybe Darby gets a proper title rematch at WrestleDream to add another hometown wrestler to the card. The ROH World Six Man Tag Championships being the Rampage main event is great for the building story of Swerve VS Hangman, and might actually give Mogul Embassy a chance to retain.

Great title match from Saraya VS Storm, with great character work and references back to the previous matches. But as such, of course Ruby helps Saraya retain, and who knows where Storm goes from here. Good promo to set up the Tag Team Fatal 4 Way, but I still feel The Kingdom wins that to then challenge MJF & Cole. Great promo from The Kingdom with Roddy and Cole, and how that tied into Cole not being around for most of MJF VS Joe. Good promos from MJF and Joe, too, and we got a PPV worthy title match. MJF has now reached that Eddie Guerrero level where he can cheat and do Heel things but is still Face because the fans love him. As such, MJF wins, and it is great to see Joe show him respect.

Joe will still have plenty to do with his ROH TV title, and now I think AEW really commits to how Roddy & The Kingdom will get in between MJF & Cole, take those tag titles, and then MJF VS Cole Round 3 happens at like Full Gear to settle things once and for all.

My Score: 9/10

Mitchell’s AEW Collision Results & Report! (9/16/23)

Collision strikes gold!



Will TBS belong to the DMD?

Britt Baker has led the AEW Women’s Division before, and now she wants to create true history! Will she be the first to have held the Women’s World AND TBS titles in her career?

The Blackpool Combat Club speaks.

Claudio Castagnoli says Saturday nights are alright for fighting, and that means it’s perfect for the BCC. Bryan Danielson tells Ricky Starks that last week, Starks choked Bryan out with a BCC shirt. Starks says he’s angry, he’s hungry and he’s greedy. Let’s see how hungry Starks is after Bryan shoves his fist down Starks’ throat!

“Big Bill” Morrissey & Ricky Starks speak.

Bill says his shoes are still soaked with the blood of Jon Moxley, and tonight, more BCC blood will be spilt. Starks tells Bryan & Claudio that there’s no place on this show for glory hogs. That is why Starks & Bill prove why they are the Faces of Collision!


Kris Statlander speaks.

The Galaxy’s Greatest knows Britt Baker has homefield advantage here at her alma mater, Penn State, and Kris is still sore from her main event title match just last night. But Kris is no normal champion, she is THE fighting champion. Tonight belongs to Stat!

John Silver says The Acclaimed were too busy scissoring and didn’t take time to read the contract! Anthony Bowens isn’t wrestling Evil Uno! No, he’s wrestling THE MEAT MAN! Evil Uno says that’s right, and Silver will win tonight, because The Dark Order is good.

The Acclaimed speak.

Max Caster says, “Yo! Listen!” and Billy Gunn says they have been the AEW World Trios Champions for TWENTY DAYS! And Bowens says fine print or not, Uno or Four, the Five Tool Player, The Best Sciz in the Biz, will beat dat ass! Because EVERYONE! LOVES! THE ACCLAIMED!


Bryan Danielson & Claudio Castagnoli VS Ricky Starks & “Big Bill” Morrissey!

The American Dragon wants to settle things with The Absolute, so they’re each calling upon they powerful allies! Will The Swiss Superman be rolling into his Winner Takes All match with Eddie Kingston on Dynamite: Grand Slam? Or will the human skyscraper not be jumped over in a single bound?

The teams sort out and Bryan starts against Starks. Fans rally up and the two circle. But then Starks tags out to Bill and fans boo. Bill soaks up that heat and Starks mocks Bryan’s Yes fingers. Bryan KICKS Bill, KICKS again, but Bill stays up. Bryan KICKS and KICKS and KICKS, but Bill catches Bryan to shove him to a corner! Bill CHOPS, then he CHOPS again! Bryan drops to his knees and Bill looms over him. Bill drags Bryan up to ROCK him with a right. Bill digs those blood-stained boots in, but lets off as the ref counts.

Fans fire up as Bryan KICKS and KICKS and KICKS the leg again! “YES! YES! YES!” but Bill choke grips to SHOVE Bryan down! Bryan goes to his corner, Bill shakes out the leg, and Claudio tags in!

Starks drags Bryan up, tags Bill, and they mug Bryan with a clubbing shot! Bill puts Bryan in a corner, goes corner to corner, and SPLASHES! Bill is loving it and so is Starks as he says, “Too easy.” Bill soaks up the heat, says one more time, and he whips Bryan corner to corner again. Bill runs in again, but into a BOOT! Bryan goes up, steadies himself, but Starks distracts! Bill BOOTS Bryan down, then almost gets Claudio! But this is a distraction so Starks can fire off shots on Bryan!

Fans boo, Starks gets Bryan up and in the ring, and the ref reprimands everyone as Collision goes picture in picture.

Bill swaggers around, then he stands on Bryan at the ropes! The ref counts, Bill steps off Bryan’s neck at 4, and then Starks drags Bryan up to CLUB away! Claudio storms over from the outside but Starks hurries away. The ref stops Claudio, and Starks claims bad leg.

Starks turns it around in time, covers, TWO!! Starks drags Bryan up while Bill BOOTS Claudio! The ref is distracted, Starks LOW BLOWS Bryan!! Starks reels Bryan in to ROSHAMBEAUX!!! Cover, Starks & Bill win!!

Winners: Ricky Starks & “Big Bill” Morrissey, by pinfall

The fans can’t believe it! Starks takes the low road and takes this win away from the BCC! Claudio is furious and he has a chair! Starks & Bill run for it, but will this momentum help Starks absolutely take over AEW?


The Hung Bucks speak.

Matt Jackson asks if they’re live and Brandon Cutler confirms, they’re live on these beautiful faces. How do the arms look? Never mind, shut up. Hangman Page tells the Mogul Embassy that it would seem Swerve has them working really hard for him. But if you want a trios match, why not make it a real gamble? Put up those ROH World Six Man Tag Championships! Nick says it’s gonna be a jackpot. And these three are familiar with those titles. Oh, right, so now they can become two-time Six Man Champs! See you “dweebs” next week! Cut it, Brandon. The red button. Hangman says “dweebs” is a good line. Brandon, cut already.

And so it is confirmed! Rampage: Grand Slam is already two hours, but it’s even bigger now! Will The Cowboy & Bucks once again be golden? Or will nothing stop Brian Cage, Bishop Kaun & Toa Liona in their reign of terror?


“Powerhouse” Will Hobbs speaks.

“Sometimes, we need to know when to move on. But in this next chapter in the Book of Hobbs, it’s titled, ‘Destruction.’ Now in this chapter, absolutely no one is safe. And I’m not talking about putting an armbar, a headlock, on someone. I’m talking about physical pain. Mental pain. I’m talking about ripping your arm off, smiling, and eating you with it. In this chapter, it doesn’t matter where you are, who you are, you’re not safe. Absolutely no one is safe.”


Miro speaks.

“Hobbs, you son of a b*tch. You should be thanking the Redeemer right now. I punched you all the way to Heaven, stomped you all the way to Hell, broke your back… but I didn’t make you humble. And for that, somewhere down the line, we’ll have to meet up again. But you…” Miro looks up to the skies. “You went all out when I was at my weakest, you delivered temptation. My hot and flexible wife.

“Why, God, why? Why, why, WHY!? Every time I try to step away from you, you do everything to pull me back? I will not bend! It is not my fault that your absence from this world left all these people godless! And now they have hope, because they pray to me! And if any one of them fools don’t want to be redeemed, I’m gonna package them nice in a pine box and send them your way. For this is the promise of The Redeemer!”


AEW World Tag Team Championships: FTR VS The Iron Savages w/ Jacked Jameson!

Cash Wheeler & Dax Harwood were feeling so good after All In London, but were brought down a bit at All Out. So they’re looking to reestablish their Top Guy status by taking on two of the biggest and bulkiest around! Will FTR make it past their hoss-tile opponents? Or will we all be sippin’ the Savage Sauce after this Collision?

The introductions are made, the belts are raised, and we see who are really the big dogs of AEW!

The teams sort out and fans are already fired up for FTR. Jameson taunts Dax about his lack of a six pack. Too much tequila and pizza! But then Dax picks Jameson up and Cash joins in, SHATTER MACHINE for Jameson! Fans fire up, but then the Savages CLOBBER FTR! Bronson whips corner to corner, Boulder whips him in to SPLASH! Boulder then SPLASHES, and the Savages DOUBLE BACK DROP! Boulder tags Bronson, then runs to SPLASH Cash on the mat! Boulder sets Cash up to DIVING SPLASH! Cover, Dax breaks it in time! Boulder drags Dax up and TOSSES him out!

Bronson hauls Cash up, feeds to Boulder’s BACKBREAKER! Bronson says he’s gonna BUST, and then he hits a SKY HIGH! Cover, TWO!! Bronson snarls, but he runs in at Cash in the corner, ready to motorboat! But Cahs dodges and Bronson POSTS himself! Fans rally up as Cash and Bronson crawl, hot tags to Dax and Boulder! Boulder CLOBBERS Dax! Boulder taunts Dax, fans boo, but Boulder whips Dax to ropes. Dax ducks ‘n ‘dodges and slides under to JAB, JAB, and ROCK! Boulder shoves but Dax SHOTGUNS! But Boulder comes back! Dax avoids the elbow drop but Boulder scoops him! POWERSLAM!

The straps come down and fans are torn. Boulder storms around, goes up the corner, and MOONSAULTS but FLPOS as Dax moves! Dax RAMS Boulder into the corner, Cash helps out to hoist Boulder up, but Bronson returns! FTR DOBULE HAYMAKER, then they hit SHATTER MACHINE!! FTR go back after Boulder, Cash tags in and goes to the other corner. Dax gets Boulder up, SUPERPLEX for the Power! Cash SPLASH for the Glory!! Cover, FTR WINS!!

Winners: FTR, by pinfall (still AEW World Tag Team Champions)

The challenge was made, the challenge was accepted, and the challenge was won by the champs! But wait, it seems another team wants their shot! The Workhorsemen get in the ring and stare FTR down. JD Drake & Anthony Henry seem to think they’re next, so FTR offers handshakes. The Workhorsemen take it, and the four stare down. But Aussie Open is watching from backstage and seem amused. Will JD & Henry catch FTR off guard? Will Kyle Fletcher & Mark Davis be next in line after them?


Backstage interview with Keith Lee.

Lexi Nair is with the Limitless One and says it is good to see him again. Last week, Keith talked about- Oh, well, Shane Taylor & Lee Moriarty walk over first. Shane says it is always Keith living int he past. Listen, Shane is here to introduce the world to the newest member of Shane Taylor Promotions, “The BEST Damn Technical Wrestler int he World,” Lee Moriarty. Keith knows Moriarty. Hello and salutations. But Shane says anyone in singles competition should run from Keith? Shane doesn’t run. But Keith already knows that, too, right? Yes, and about Shane’s mistakes. Not running will soon be one.

Shane says let’s find out then. Moriarty is hyped up for this, when and where will these old frenemies have it out?


John Silver VS Anthony Bowens w/ Max Caster & Billy Gunn!

A bait and switch from the “good guys,” and now Number IV will be facing the Five Tool Player instead! But of course, Caster has a diss track ready! “Acclaimed in the house, and Bowens’ ’bout to kill a boy! Kinda like how Penn State just beat Illinois! John Silver is the Meat Man, why? Because he just beats his meat, man! And where’s Uno and his business suit? Lookin’ like a dominatrix on a job interview! ‘Ey yo, they’re singing the name! In Happy Valley, everybody loves the Acclaimed!” Bowens takes the mic to shout, “PENN STAAAATE~! The Acclaimed have arrived! Scissor me, Daddy Ass~!” And he does~!

Silver gets the mic and asks what is going on. First off, he googled “scissoring,” and they’re doing it wrong. He’s not gonna do it. Second, they didn’t read the rest of the contract, because it says Billy & Caster are banned from ringside! Fans boo but Silver says no one likes scissoring anyways, so they’re gone! Fans call BS but Bowens says it’s okay, he’s got this. Caster & Billy start to leave, and Silver CLOBBERS Bowens from behind! The bell rings and fans boo as Silver CLUBS away on Bowens! The ref counts, Silver lets off, and Bowens turns things around to CHOP! And CHOP! And then he fires haymakers!

The ref counts, Bowens fires up, then ROCKS Silver! Bowens goes corner to corner, runs around the world, and ROCKS Silver with another haymaker! Then a scoop and SLAM, and Bowens scissors in front of Silver’s face! Silver grabs Bowens’ arms, fights up, but Bowens throws him away, and DROPKICKS him down! Fans boo as Silver bails out, but Bowens keeps his cool. Silver takes his time returning, fans rally up behind Bowens, and Silver finally steps in. They circle, but then Silver uses ropes as defense! The fans boo but Silver cheap shots Bowens! Silver UPPERCUTS!

Silver says he’s freakin’ jacked, then he whips corner to corner. Sivler runs in, into an ELBOW! Bowens reels Silver in, but Sivler GAMANGIRIS Bowens to the floor! Fans boo but Silver smirks as Collision goes picture in picture.

Silver watches Bowens get up, then he runs in around the way to BOOT Bowens down! Silver taunts the fans, puts Bowens in the ring, and stalks him. Silver ROCKS Bowens with a right, ROCKS him again, and then CHOKES Bowens on the ropes! The ref counts, Silver lets off, and Silver taunts Bowens. Bowens shoves Silvera way, goes to a corner, and kicks back! Then fires forearms! Silver YANKS Bowens into buckles! Silver paces, drags Bowens up, and KICKS him in the chest! Bowens sputters but Silver KICKS him again! Silver flexes, soaks up the heat, then KICKS, but Bowens blocks! Collision goes to break!

Collision returns and Silver cravats. Fans rally, Bowens fights free and throws forearms! Silver KICKS Bowens back! Silver DECKS Bowens, then soaks up more heat. Silver drags Bowens up but Bowens ROCKS him! And ROCKS him again! And again! Silver KICKS! Silver runs, but Bowens follows! Silver ducks but Bowens redirects and fires off the Five Tool Strike Fest! SUPERKICK knocks Silver down! Fans fire up as Bowens says “EVERYONE! Loves the Acclaimed!” Bowens kicks, runs, and KOTARO KRUSHER! Cover, TWO! Fans rally up and Bowens feeds off the energy.

Silver rises, Bowens clinches but Silver fires elbows! Silver ROCKS Bowens, but Bowens fixes the neck to ROCK Silver back! Silver ROCKS Bowens, Bowens ROCKS Silver, repeat! Fans fire up as they keep going, but Silver CHOPS! Silver runs, but Bowens ROCKS him! Bowens runs but Silver BOOTS him! Silver runs but lures Bowens into a SUPERKICK! Silver runs, into a LARIAT! Fans fire up with Bowens and he runs corner to corner, but Silver dodges! ENZIGURI, GERMAN SUPLEX, and then SUPERKICK! Then a deadlift BRAINBUSTER! Cover, TWO!!

Fans fire up as Bowens survives, but Silver keeps his focus. Silver aims from a corner, Bowens rises, and Silver runs in, only for Bowens to dodge! Fireman’s carry, USHIGOROSHI! Fans fire up with Bowens and he runs to SHINING WIZARD! Silver flounders and bails out, but Bowens hurries out after him. Silver slowly rises, Bowens runs in, ROLLING ELBOW! Fans fire up with Bowens again and the ring count starts. Bowens drags Silver up and in, gets the fans even more fired up, but EVIL UNO POSTS Bowens!! Where’d Uno even come from!? Under the ring?!?

Uno puts Bowens in for Silver to RUNNING KNEE!! Cover, SILVER WINS!!

Winner: John Silver, by pinfall

Caster & Billy rush back out but Uno says Silver did it! The Dark Order gets away with this one, but how are they the “good guys” in this story of champions and challengers?


Eddie Kingston speaks.

“What do you guys want me to say? Like, don’t we have a thing on YouTube explaining it? Me and Claudio go all the way back to 2000 and what? Six? Seven? When he first moved here to this country. We became friends, and we lived together, and then he started judging me.” Claudio knew what Eddie goes through emotionally and mentally every day. But Claudio decided not to do business with Eddie, not to respect him. Don’t edit this out, you idiots. Claudio left potholes in that road that many had to clean up. That’s why Eddie doesn’t like him, holds a grudge against him.

And don’t edit this out, neither! Renee told Eddie to fix it! And it’s driving him nuts because he’s been trying to fix it! Since Wembley! He thought the singles match could fix it! That him not answering Moxley’s calls could fix it. But y’know what? THIS will fix it! THIS will end it! Win, lose or draw, THIS will finish it! Claudio says Eddie doesn’t know how to have friends? How to keep ’em? Well, he’s right! Cuz Eddie pushes them away, then blames them for it. That’s the curse Eddie lives with. But what Eddie does have and will always have, is home! New York’s always been with Eddie! Burroughs, Yonkers, wherever it is, that’s Eddie’s home.

And Claudio thinks Eddie’s gonna let Claudio into Arthur Ashe just to beat him? End him and end this with Eddie on the mat? You are out your effin’ mind! All of New York has Eddie’s back! Try to beat him there! They’re built different! Built in the cold and the misery! Can Claudio deal with that? No, he can’t. Eddie gives Claudio all the credit in the world. The skills, the body, but he ain’t ready for the misery! Eddie’s gonna eff Claudio up in New York! Now get out of his face! The Mad King is definitely raging, but will he use that to burn Claudio down? Or will it burn Eddie out?


Backstage interview with Hook and Orange Cassidy.

Renee is with the Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil and Freshly Squeezed, and they’re enjoying a bag of chips. They asked for this time, so what’s up? Cassidy says he and Hook should, uh, try a tag match or something. Hook says yeah. Cassidy says maybe Grand Slam? Hook says let’s do it. They bond over having chips, and Renee says cool. #OrangeHook is go, but who will they face?


Aussie Open VS ???

Kyle Fletcher & Mark Davis went on a Rampage and got a win, and now they’re ready for a Collision! Will the Aussie Arrow & Dunkzilla just keep on building momentum back towards a title match?

The teams sort out, Fletcher ties up with Wes and headlocks. Wes powers out, Fletcher reverses and Davis runs in to help CLOBBER Wes! PENALTY KCIK! SENTON! Fans fire up and the big guy gets in! Aussie Open dodge to DOUBLE BOOT! A-LIST LARIAT from Fletcher, SLIDING FOREARM from Davis! Tag to Fletcher, Aussie Open gets Wes up to underhook, BUTTERFLY BOMB!! Cover, Aussie Open wins!

Winners: Aussie Open, by pinfall

Practically a record win, and now Aussie Open get the mics! Davis starts up, “AUSSIE AUSSIE AUSSIE!” “OI OI OI!” Davis then says, “F T are you paying attention?” Fletcher says that was a nice win FTR got earlier. What was that? Two, three minutes? Well on Rampage, Aussie Open did the job under one minute, and maybe even quicker here tonight! Fans cheer that, and Fletcher says FTR loves to talk about how many titles they’ve won, and won everywhere they’ve been. But so have Aussie Open! FTR won the ROH World Tag Team Championships, but so have they. FTR won the IWGP Heavyweight Tag Team Championships, but so have they! Belts they never lost, by the way.

So if FTR wants to throw out open challenges, fine, they don’t care! Because right here, right now, Aussie Open calls their shot! October 1st, 2023, one year to the day they last stepped in the ring with FTR, WrestleDream in Seattle, for the AEW World Tag Team Championships, IF FTR still has ’em! Aussie Open VS FTR round one at NJPW Royal Quest was an instant classic, will WrestleDream give us an even greater one?


Toni Storm: Portrait of a Star.

The Lightning From Down Under sits with RJ City for an interview. She thanks him for doing this, and he says she is about to face her friend, Saraya- She says this lighting is blinding her. Is this really what they’re going with? Oh, uh, sorry. They can try and soften it. Or at least lower it or something. This is an interview, not an interrogation. RJ apologizes and he continues. Storm VS Saraya is set for Grand Slam for the AEW Women’s World Championship, but fans have started to notice a… change in Storm. A change? What change? The business has changed! Storm is still the same loveable and captivating person she’s always been.

But she feels the business used to be about making stars and earning money. No, now it’s about listening to the fans and signing every little girl with a sob story. But sorry, isn’t this a company, not a charity? These people wouldn’t know talent if it slapped their tits off! And if that has to be Storm, then so be it. She looks around at the set, and the lamp is hideous! Can we do something about that? No? Sorry. TO BE CONTINUED~!


Scorpio Sky speaks.

“Getting back in the ring after back-to-back injuries is daunting for anyone, and I’ll be damned if they didn’t throw me right back in the deep waters, just where I belong. After all, I didn’t win gold in this company three times by being afraid to get wet. And Andrade is one of the best in the world. And that’s who I’m here to face. So Andrade,” Scorpio switches to Spanish to say, “I know you’ll come with everything, but it won’t be enough.” This time, Scorpio isn’t coming back, he’s here. Will The Closer strike out The Latin Idol?

Andrade El Idolo VS Scorpio Sky!

The bell rings and fans rally as the two stare down. They approach and Andrade offers a handshake. Scorpio says nah, man, this ain’t ROH. But fans chant “SHAKE HIS HAND!” Scorpio tells them to shut it, and the two tie up. Andrade headlocks, Scorpio powers up but can’t power out as Andrade holds on tight. Andrade wrenches to an ELBOW BREAKER, then hammerlocks. Scorpio reaches back to flying-mare! Fans rally, things speed up, Scorpio hurdles then trips Andrade up to have the leg! But Andrade slips free to facelock. Scorpio fights up, goes to ropes, and the ref counts the break.

Andrade shifts to a headlock, Scorpio powers out, but Andrade whips. Scorpio KICKS back, runs, but Andrade dodges. Scorpio rolls back to headscissor and RANA! Fans fire up and Scorpio runs in, but is put on the apron. Andrade runs in but Scorpio ROCKS him! Scorpio steps in but Andrade has the leg! DRAPING DRAGON SCREW! Scorpio falls to the floor and fans rally up. Andrade goes to the apron, goes up the corner, but Scorpio SHOVES him down! Andrade crashes to the floor and Collision goes picture in picture.

Andrade writhes, Scorpio hobbles his way over, and Scorpio hauls Andrade up to RAM him into the apron! Scorpio puts Andrade in, slaps his bad leg, and then storms in after Andrade. Scorpio RAMS Andrade into a corner, and again, and again! Scorpio lets off as the ref counts, and he brings Andrade around to snapmare and SCRAPE the face! Andrade checks his forehead, but Scorpio covers, ONE! Scorpio drops an elbow! And another! Andrade goes to ropes, puts Scorpio in a corner and CHOPS! And CHOPS! Scorpio dodges to ROCK Andrade! And KNEES him down! Andrade checks his jaw, but Scorpio drops another elbow!

Scorpio drags Andrade up, reels him in, throws up the three, and he suplexes, only for Andrade to block! Andrade snap suplexes! Uno Amigo! Another for Dos Amigo! But Scorpio wrenches out to back suplex! Both men are down, fans rally up, and Scorpio twists Andrade with a neck wrench. Andrade endures, even as Scorpio leans on the hold. Collision returns to single picture, fans rally up, and Andrade fights up to his feet. Andrade throws body shots, breaks free and then he CHOPS! But Scorpio knees low, scoops, but Andrade turns it to a CROSSBODY! Both men are down again and fans rally up.

Andrade rises but Scorpio is on him with forearms! Andrade CHOPS! Scorpio BOOTS! And BOOTS! And BOOTS! Andrade finally falls, but he fires up! He eggs Scorpion on, so Scorpio BOOTS again! Andrade eggs him on more, blocks the boot, and then DRAGON SCREWS! And then another DRAGON SCREW! Then Andrade runs to CLOBBER Scorpio! Scorpio goes to a corner and fans fire up as Andrade kips up! Andrade feeds off the energy, runs corner to corner, but Scorpio stands to ELBOW back! Scorpio goes up the corner to FLYING SUNSET FLIP! But Andrade rolls through so Scorpio sunset flips again! High stack, TWO!!

Andrade escapes and bails out of the ring. Scorpio builds speed to FLY out onto Andrade! Direct hit and both men go down! Scorpio shakes out the bad leg, hobbles after Andrade and puts him in again. Fans rally up, Scorpio storms up and fireman’s carries, but Andrade fights free! Fans duel, both men throw shots, and Scorpio runs, into a boot feint and ELBOW!! Then underhook, but Scorpio fights the DDT! Cradle counter, TWO!! Andrade runs in, Scorpio kicks low to run, but into a dropkick to the leg! Andrade steps through to have the figure four! Fans “WOO~!” and Andrade bridges up! FIGURE EIGHT!! Scorpion taps, Andrade wins!

Winner: Andrade El Idolo, by submission

Scorpio couldn’t withstand the pain, but he does still show Andrade respect. Wait, Jay White is here! The Switchblade isn’t waiting to have the ring on his own, he’s here with Bullet Club Gold now! And White says he’ll get to the two in the ring in a second. But first…! Where are they? Colten whispers it to him. Guns up for State College gold members! Fans cheer, and White tells Mr. Andrade El Idolo, if he pronounced that right. White wasn’t here last week, but he watched his boys, and that means he watched Andrade watching his boys. And when Andrade was watching them, he seemed to have fun watching BCG.

It seemed Andrade was having fun watching the Bang Bang Gang! A lot of fun watching Rock Hard Robinson, “Full Cocked” Colten, and… Austin! Wait, no nickname? The fans say he should be “ASS~ BOY!” But Andrade, these are White’s boys! But maybe Andrade wants the Switchblade Spotlight? Everyone wants it, no one else can handle it! And White will prove it when he gives Andrade the opporutnity of a lifetime! Step into the spotlight with King Switch, and learn the lights are too hot, too bright, and you’ll be gasping for air as you Breath With The Switchblade! This is STILL White’s Era!

Austin says if Andrade’s not down with that, they got two words for ya! No, not those words. #GunsUp! And if that’s still not good enough, then maybe they just do things right now? Andrade storms out and Juice eggs him on. But refs and security stop them! Fans boo, Andrade eggs the Bang Bang Gang on but they just wait on the ramp. Will Jay White live up to his own hype when he steps to El Idolo?


Backstage interview with Katsuyori Shibata.

Tony Schiavone is with The Wrestler, the ROH Pure Champion. Shibata will defend his title next week on Honor Club, against Nick Wayne. But as we all know, October 1st will be WrestleDream, and Shibata has something to say. Shibata uses his phone’s Google Translate text-to-voice featured to say today he is one of the best in the world, and a great champion. October 1st, WrestleDream, Shibata is coming. Who will get their wrestle dream of facing The Wrestler in Seattle?


The Hardy Boyz VS The Righteous!

For whatever reason, Matt & Jeff Hardy found themselves looking up at the faces of Dutch & Vincent after last night’s 8 Man Tag. But it would seem Dutch & Vincent want a little bit of payback from the tag team battle royal not too long ago. Will that be possible against a legendary team like the Hardys? Or will it be as easy as snapping your fingers?

The teams sort out and Matt starts against Vinnie. They circle, Vinnie offers Jeff a shot, but Matt fires off forearms first! Vinnie kicks low, Matt clinches, but Vinnie elbows free to run and CLOBBER Matt! Cover, ONE, but Vinnie pushes Matt down to rain down fists. The fans boo but Vinnie soaks it all up. “You dig what I’m sayin’, man?” Vinnie cravats, goes for the corner but Matt sends him into buckles! And again, and again! “DELETE! DELETE! DELETE!” Matt shouts V1 and he tags Jeff in. Dutch runs in but The Hardys dump him out! Matt ROCKS Vinnie, Jeff ROCKS Vinnie, and repeat!

Jeff whips Vinnie into a BOOT from Matt, then Jeff adds a JAWBREAKER! Matt hits a NECKBREAKER, then Jeff SPLASHES down! Cover, TWO! Jeff drags Vinnie up, snapmares and basement dropkicks! Jeff drags Vinnie up, tags Matt in, and then the Hardys double whip corner to corner. Matt sets up, Jeff runs in, POETRY IN MOTION! Vinnie flops, Matt starts up more “DELETE! DELETE!” Vinnie stands, blocks a kick to give a kick, but Matt RAMS him into the corner! Dutch tags, Vinnie whips and Dutch hits a SCRAPBUSTER! Cover, TWO! Matt is still in this, and Collision goes picture in picture.

Dutch UPPERCUTS and Matt goes to a corner. Dutch ELBOWS Matt, then CHOPS him against ropes. Matt sputters, hits back, but Dutch ROCKS him! Dutch stomps Matt, UPPERCUTS again, then tags in Vinnie. The Righteous DOUBLE ROCK, DOUBLE CHOP, then double whip so Dutch can CLOBBER Matt! Vinnie covers, TWO! Vinnie keeps on Matt but Matt throws hands. Matt backs Vinnie down but Vinnie ROCKS him back! Vinnie CHOKES Matt in the corner, the ref counts, and Vinnie lets off at 4. Vinnie bumps Matt off buckles, tags Dutch back in, and Dutch throws body shots!

Dutch snapmares, then lines up a shot to drop the leg, brother! Cover, TWO! Dutch keeps on Matt with a facelock. Matt endures, fights around but Dutch shifts to a chinlock. Dutch squeezes tight, Matt fights up, and Matt throws body shots! Dutch CLUBS Matt down and Collision goes to break!

Collision returns and Matt crawls. Vinnie mockingly encourages Jeff to reach out, then he goes back for Matt, only for Matt to hit a SIDE EFFECT! Both men crawl, hot tag to Jeff! Fans rally as Brother Nero rallies on Vinnie! SPIN BACK KICK! Dutch runs in, into an atomic drop! Leg trip, and LEG SPLITTING LEG DROP! Basement dropkick added on, then an elbow drop! Jeff fires up with the fans, and he kicks Vinnie to TWIST- NO, Vinnie powers out! Vinnie runs but into an elbow! But Vinnie keeps Jeff from going up, so Jeff kicks low, TWIST OF FATE! Dutch hurries in to stop the cover!

Matt storms in to throw forearms on Dutch! And a JAWBREAKER! The Hardys DOUBLE CLOTHESLINE Dutch up and out! They call for “DELETE! DELETE!” as Vinnie stands. Kick and TWIST OF- NO, Vinnie powers out, only for another SIDE EFFECT to hit! Jeff is up top, but Dutch YANKS him down! And then Dutch drags Matt out to RAM him into steel steps! Vinnie hurries to get Jeff, and The Righteous combine for AUTUMN SUNSET! Cover, The Righteous win!!

Winners: The Righteous, by pinfall

Vinnie & Dutch grin as they soak up the heat from the fans! They just pinned the highly decorated Hardy Boyz! Is this a sign that The Righteous shall reign soon enough? Fans boo as Dutch gets the mic to say, “Vincent! Dutch! We are The Righteous! Two believers who seek truth in the liars’ eyes! HAHAHA!” Vinnie says speaking of truth, they just defeated one of the greatest tag teams in the world! Fans boo more but Vinnie says like it or not, the people of the world are just prisoners to false icons. They’re fooled by the conmen, and listening to the devil on their shoulder! But Vinnie doesn’t believe in the devil, man! They’re here to tell ya the truth!

Their truth will kill the egos that leave to false loves and fake friendships. Kinda like MJF and Adam Cole… Those two just happen to be the ROH World Tag Team Champions. Dig what he’s sayin’, man? The Righteous want after #BetterThanYouBaybay, but so do a lot of people! Will Vinnie & Dutch cut the line? Or will The Kingdom have something to say about this?


Claudio Castagnoli speaks.

“Let me guess. Eddie was screaming and he was yelling and he was cursing. See, Eddie, I know you. That’s why you’re mad at me. Because I know what you could become, I knew what you threw away, I know you better than you know yourself.” For the past ten YEARS, Claudio has had to hear Eddie complain to anyone that would listen. Eddie dragged Claudio through the mud, because he was not man enough. Eddie’s still not man enough! Claudio’s beaten Eddie before, and he’ll beat him again, and this time, it will be the last time because Claudio is sick of it. “Eddie, let’s put an end to it.” Kingston VS Castagnoli, the final chapter. Together, dreams and title aspirations will burn down to ashes!


BREAKING NEWS for next week’s Collision!

Rob Van Dam is back in AEW to wrestle in his home state! And after the handshake earlier tonight, it is official, FTR defends the AEW World Tag Team Championships against the Workhorsemen!

Backstage interview with FTR.

Schiavone is with Dax & Cash as the news breaks, and Cash says they have Henry & Drake, a team FTR has been aware of for the last 15 YEARS. And that is what these open challenges are all about. They want teams to step up. Then if they make it past Workhorsemen, with or without the belts, they face Aussie Open. Dax will bet every dollar he has that FTR will still be the tag team champions! See you boys in Seattle! #TopGuysOut!


Collision returns with a backstage interview with Ricky Starks & Big Bill.

Schiavone is with The Absolute and the human skyscraper, and while they won tonight, they seem very upset. Why is that? Starks says he should’ve figured that they’d play some promotional video package for the guy Starks just beat! And for a guy that doesn’t even work here! At WrestleDream, a show Starks doesn’t even have a match for! This is the type of stuff he is talking about! He is over it, beyond exhausted. The deal is, Starks beat Bryan tonight. And he gets that it is everybody’s dream to beat Bryan Danielson. But guess what? Starks did it! Now to be a nightmare!

And to do so, Starks will go to lengths he has never gone to before. So next week on Collision, Starks VS Bryan in a TEXAS DEATH MATCH! Show up, Starks will show out, and he will put an end to the fiasco known as Bryan Danielson. Starks & Bill head out, will The American Dragon even survive to face Zack Sabre Jr. in Seattle?


AEW TBS Championship: Kris Statlander VS Britt Baker!

The Galaxy’s Greatest gave Jade Cargill a rematch just last night, and that was one to remember! But will Kris be able to do it all over again not even 24 hours later? Or will The Doctor become a history maker in AEW?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see is history is made in Britt’s alma mater!

The bell rings and fans fire up for the hometown hero, “D M D! D M D!” Britt and Kris stare down, circle, and then tie up. Kris shoves Britt away to show her strength, and the two circle again. Fans rally up, Kris and Britt tie up again, and Britt headlocks. Kris powers out, then runs Britt over! Fans boo but Kris just smiles. Britt stands, Kris nods and the two reset. Fans rally, the two circle, and they tie up again. Kris scoops to SLAM Britt, and she flexes on The Doctor. Fans are a bit torn now but Britt bails out to catch her breath. She acknowledges the “We Are” sign at ringside, and heads back in.

Britt and Kris reset, step up, and talk a little trash. Britt ROCKS Kris, but Kris smiles to ROCK Britt! Britt ROCKS Kris, and Kris ROCKS Britt! They go back and forth, Kris CHOPS, then runs! Britt follows, slips around, shoves Kris to a corner but Kris goes up and over! Kris hobbles a bit, her legs are still braced up. Britt runs in to NECKBREAKER! Britt runs to SLING- NO, Kris powers out to then POWERSLAM! Cover, TWO! Kris keeps cool and fans rally up again as Collision goes picture in picture.

Kris brings Britt up, suplexes, and holds her up for a count of TEN before the SLAM! Cover, TWO! Kris is annoyed but she brings Britt up and in. Kris whips Britt to a corner, then runs in. Britt fights off the scoop but Kris ELBOWS Britt. Kris scoops, Britt fights, but Kris still hits a BACKBREAKER! And she bends Britt against her knee! Britt endures, so Kris shoves her down! Kris then wraps on a cobra clutch and grinds her down to the mat. Britt endures, fights up, and the fans rally. Britt stands, CLUBS Kris, but Kris ROCKS Britt! Kris scoops Britt to SLAM her into a drop zone!

Kris goes up while Britt writhes, but Britt hurries to SMACK Kris! Britt then climbs up after Kris to throw hands! Kris hits back, the two brawl up top, and Collision returns to single picture. Kris gets the edge, shoves Britt down, then CLUBS away on her back! Britt falls, Kris adjusts, and Kris MOONSAULTS but FLOPS as Britt moves! Britt goes to the apron, but Kris rushes her! Britt HOTSHOTS Kris down! Britt drags Kris to the corner, and she SLAMS the right leg into the post! And then Britt SLAMS the left leg into the post! And then back to the right leg! And back to the left!

Britt lets off, to run and SLINGBLADE Kris down! Britt keeps moving, another SLINGBLADE! FISHERMAN- NO, Kris slips out to BLUE THUNDER BOMB! Cover, TWO! Kris doesn’t slow down, she drags Britt up to suplex, SPINNING FISHERMAN BUSTER! Cover, TWO! Britt survives and Kris grows frustrated with her. “This is Awesome!” as Kris hauls Britt up. Kris runs, but Britt trips her out of the scissor kick, to CURB STOMP! Cover, TWO!! Fans fire up as Britt brings out the glove! Britt puts it on, spells it out, “D! M! D!” but Kris rolls her up! TWO, but Kris swings. Britt dodges, returns, and tilt-o-whirl, LA MYSTICA!

RINGS OF SATURN! Britt reaches but Kris blocks the hand! Kris powers her way around, has Britt’s arm, and fans boo as Kris wrenches to ROCK Britt! Britt ROCKS Kris! Kris ROCKS Britt, but Britt ROCKS Kris! They go back and forth, harder and harder, and fans rally up! “YES! BOO!” Britt gets the edge, Kris shoves to ROUNDHOUSE! Kris runs, into a SUPERKICK! Britt runs, ROLLING- NO, Kris ducks, but then Britt SUPERKICKS again! But Kris still LARIATS!! Both women are down, and the fans are thunderous! The ref starts a count, Kris and Britt stir, but we pass 5 of 10!

Britt goes to a corner, and she drags herself up at 7. Britt runs in, but Kris TOSSES her to the corner! Kris UPPERCUTS, runs side to side, and she- NO, Britt dodges and the knee hits buckles! Britt goes up, STATE COLLEGE SUN- NO, no sunrise! But then Britt turns the tuck to a sunset flip! TWO!! Kris ROUNDHOUSES again! And reels Britt in to tuck and POWER- NO, Britt slips free! DESTROYER!!! Kris wobbles, Britt reels her in, underhooks for a PEDIGREE!! CURB STOMP!! Cover, TWO!?!? Kris survives and no one can believe it! Britt is shocked, too, but she goes back to the corner.

Britt hops up, Kris rises, “D! M! D!” But Kris Electric Chair Lifts! Britt fights free and has an IRON OCTOPUS!! Fans are thunderous as Britt brings Kris down to a knee with this! But Kriss fights back up! So LOCKJAW OCTOPUS COMBO!!! Britt drags Kris down to the mat, fans are freaking out, but Kris rolls it with a fisherman hook! KRIS WINS!!!

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

The Nittany Lions cannot believe it! Kris snatches victory from the Lockjaw of defeat! Even so, Britt shows Kris respect by shaking her hand, and then raising it in victory. But wait! We see in the skybox that Julia Hart is watching. Will the Lady of the House of Black look to take everything away from Mama Kris?

My Thoughts:

A great episode of Collision here, but it felt like a lot of talking even for an AEW program. Also, what was with them not knowing they were live before the Keith Lee and Ricky Starks interviews? I’d like to think AEW has figured out how to do live television by now, but I guess not. They didn’t have the problem with The Elite’s promo, but that’s because they literally have asking Cutler if they’re live as part of the bit. That aside, it is both odd yet intriguing that Keith Lee VS Shane Taylor is being revisited almost a year after the Swerve in Our Glory story… Well, it never resolved, but that’s when Keith and Swerve broke up.

Speaking of The Elite, Hung Bucks had a good promo and I should’ve known they would challenge for the ROH World Six Man titles. I said on Dynamite that I hoped they wouldn’t, because it kinda buries the entire ROH roster if no other team could dethrone The Embassy but The Hung Bucks just jump right in and win. Though, I suppose it’s no different than the ROH World Tag titles being used in story for MJF and Adam Cole. The Righteous VS The Hardys was really good, too, and a bit surprised The Righteous won. But they’re after the ROH tag titles just like The Kingdom, so maybe MJF & Cole get overwhelmed and lose the belts that way.

Then we got some good stuff out of the Acclaimed and Dark Order story. Clever swerve (if that’s what it counts as) where they change Uno out for Silver, bring up a ringside ban, and then Uno still shows up to help cheat Bowens. Their own AEW World Trios Championship match will also be next week for Rampage, which makes for an interesting juxtaposition to me. I really thought The Dark Order would be in ROH more so they could get the ROH Six Man belts, but Tony Khan had different plans. What I’d like for him to see through is The Dark Order getting new recruits.

Great promos from Hobbs and Miro to hype up a future rematch, but Hobbs emphasizing the word “absolutely” and his video package having some clips with Starks in it makes me think Hobbs will want to revisit that feud. And Miro’s possibilities are very open, or maybe too much. Honestly, I thought he was going to feud with The House of Black to revisit something also not wrapped up, and then he could take MJF being the “Devil of AEW” literally so that Miro could show God he can destroy what not even He could. But for now, it just feels like Miro is so far removed from the top title, it is a real shame.

Starks & Bill VS Bryan & Claudio was great stuff, and great Heel win for Starks & Bill over Bryan & Claudio. Starks continues to call out his being overlooked, and Starks VS Bryan in a Texas Death Match is going to be insane. FTR VS Iron Savages was a lot of fun, but of course FTR wins. Aussie Open crushing two randos that didn’t even get introduced was pretty fun, but I figured they’d call out FTR for a rematch. I would think the titles will be on the line, as I don’t see The Workhorsemen taking the titles off FTR. FTR VS Aussie Open could go either way, but even then, it feels like FTR comes out the winners there to take these titles to Full Gear.

Really good match from Andrade VS Scorpio, but Andrade winning was a surprise after the Scorpio promo. But it would seem Bullet Club Gold wants to start a feud with Andrade, which still leads me to wonder why Andrade and La Faccion Ingobernable aren’t reunited yet. That would make for some great faction feuding there. Though, why did they drop Andrade VS House of Black so soon? Again, I guess Tony Khan changed plans, but he should really see certain plans through first. This kind of disconnected booking feels a bit like older WWE, if you ask me.

Very good promos from Eddie and Claudio to call each other out and put some last hype on their Winner Takes All match next week. That is going to be an amazing match, for both what they can do in the ring and for the story behind this. Then another hilarious promo from Cassidy and Hook, and #OrangeHook is going to be a great team. Though, that is both a great move, and a disappointing move because Hook just got the FTW title back and should be facing new challengers, while Cassidy should be (kayfabe) healing up so he can go after a new title, like the TNT Championship once this thing with Christian, Luchasaurus and Darby is over.

And great TBS Championship match tonight, though it was gonna be hard to follow Kris VS Jade from last night. AEW tends to favor hometown heroes, but as I said with Kris VS Jade, they couldn’t have Kris lose the belt so soon. Britt could still try again down the line, maybe going fully Heel again, but she and Shida should really have things out first, and then the winner of that faces Kris for the title at like Full Gear.

My Score: 8.8/10
