You Can’t See Me, Uce!

John Cena’s WWE return tour continues, but he’s being diverted to the Island of Relevancy! Will Jimmy Uso & Solo Sikoa end the Cena problem?

  • WWE Women’s Championship: Iyo Sky w/ Damage CTRL VS Asuka; Iyo wins and retains the title.
  • The Brawling Brutes VS Grayson Waller & Austin Theory; Waller & Theory win.


John Cena is here!

Phoenix, Arizona gets hot as the Greatest Of All Time, the Leader of the Cenation, heads to the ring! Cena gets the mic to say for those watching at home, welcome to another sold out Friday Night SmackDown! And Cena needed to come out here to open the show tonight, Since they allowed him to come home, he’s done a whole lot of thigs. he’s been a talk show guest, a host, a backstage correspondent, a referee, “WHAT?” an official. “WHAT?” Someone who imposes the rules during a match. “WHAT?” He’s out of alternates, you guys win. Fans cheer that, and Cena says the journey has taken him to Hershey, to Pittsburgh, to Denver, and all of those events have all been sold out, but not like tonight!

Fans cheer and Cena says tonight is a very special night, Cena wanted to come out to say how special this is and how different tonight will be. He doesn’t wanna be a ref, a host, a correspondent. He is back to compete! And he feels tonight, is the night he’d like to have a match! Fans are thunderous, and Cena says as you get older, hearing is the first to go. He wants their permission. Is tonight a good night to have a match? “YES!” Is it? “YES!!” Well okay, thank you for the energy! Cena is more than just excited, he is also angry. He is angry with the Bloodline. Fans boo and Cena says oh yeah, he’s ready to fight Solo & Jimmy alone!

But as luck would have it, Cena has a partner. Someone who is just as angry as Cena. Cena has found himself a phenomenal partner. Fans fire up even more as AJ Styles makes his way out! Styles joins Cena in the ring, takes the mic from Cena, and fans chant for “AJ STYLES~!” Styles hears all that, then he says, “Lemme get this straight. You want AJ Styles and John Cena VS The Bloodline?” Fans love that! “YES! YES! YES!” Cena says the fans want it. Styles tells The Bloodline that if they want some, COME GET SOME! Fans fire up as Styles uses Cena’s catchphrase, and here come Jimmy & Solo!

Fans boo as the last Uso in the family and the Enforcer of the Island get right up on the ring. Styles & Cena stand their ground, and Cena even throws off the hat and shirt to get extra ready! Jimmy & Solo snarl, but then Jimmy grins and backs off. Fans boo, but Solo stares Cena down a little longer. Solo eventually backs away and Jimmy says not tonight. Fans boo more, but is this because they have to wait on Roman Reigns giving his cousins permission?


John Cena & AJ Styles talk with Adam Pearce backstage.

They want him to understand how much the fans want to see the tag match! Pearce does, and he loves it, too. But anything with the Bloodline gets… complicated. Complicated?! Isn’t Pearce in charge? Quantum mechanics is complicated! But Pearce points out that when you deal with The Bloodline, you deal with Paul Heyman. So let him go find Heyman and work this out. Deal? They don’t really have a choice. But will Pearce be able to work something out with The Wise Man?


Rey Mysterio & Santos Escobar w/ Zelina Vega VS The Street Profits w/ Bobby Lashley!

The King of Lucha & The Emperor of Lucha agreed to battle over the United States Championship in a battle of friendship and respect, but Bobby Lashley and his new friends didn’t like that. Will Montez Ford & Angelo Dawkins use their new attitude to bring down the champ and his challenger? Or will they fail to sweep the LWO?

SmackDown returns as The Profits make their entrance, The All Mighty by their side. The teams sort out and Dawkins starts against Escobar. They talk some trash, tie up, and Dawkins headlocks. Escobar powers up but can’t power out as Dawkins holds on tight. Escobar throws body shots, powers out, but Dawkins runs him over. Things speed up, Escobar hurdles but Dawkins handsprings, only for Escobar to DROPKICK! Cover, TWO! Escobar wrenches an arm to a wristlock and he tags in Rey. Fans fire up as Rey KICKS the arm! Escobar gives Rey a boost to RANA Dawkins away! But Dawkins comes back to ROCK Rey!

Dawkins brings Rey over, tags Ford, and they whip to DROPKICK! Lashley likes what he sees and Ford covers, TWO! Ford whips Rey to ropes, hurdles, hurdles and lariats but Rey gets under to springboard CROSSBODY! Rey then ROCKS Dawkins, DUMPS Ford out, and he WRECKS Ford with a dropkick! Fans fire up as Rey builds speed, but Dawkins saves Ford from the sliding splash! Rey crashes down, Escobar hurries over, but Dawkins POUNCES him! Fans boo but Lashley cheers his guys on as SmackDown goes to break.

SmackDown returns, Rey has Ford on the ropes and ROCKS him! Rey RAMS into Ford, slingshot sunset flips, ONE!! Ford LARIATS Rey down! Lashley applauds and Ford shakes out the stars. Cover, TWO! Ford is frustrated but Lashley coaches him on. Ford drags Rey up, CLUBS him, but fans rally up behind Rey. Rey throws body shots but Ford knees low! Ford whips Rey to the corner, runs in but into a BOOT! Rey ELBOWS DWKins, BOOTS Ford, repeat! Rey slides under but Ford gets a leg! Ford drags Ree back to an Electric Chair Lift! But Rey throws down hands, and he victory rolls Ford into buckles!

Fans fire up and Lashley is frustrated now as Rey crawls! Hot tag to Escobar! Fans fire up as Escobar runs Ford over, ROCKS Dawkins, then dodges Ford to come back and CLOBBER him! Escobar keeps moving with big shoulder tackles! Escobar runs at the corner, Ford puts him in the apron but the GAMANGIRI rocks Ford! Escobar goes up, “SUCK IT!” CROSSBODY! Cover, TWO! Ford is still in this and Lashley is relieved, but Escobar is right on him. Ford back drops, Escobar sunset flips but Ford rolls through to PENALTY KICK! Run and SPLASH! Cover, TWO! Escobar is still in this but Ford goes up a corner.

Ford aims but Escobar GAMANGIRIS again! Escobar goes up after Ford, for a SUPER DUPER STEINER! Cover, TWO!! Ford is still in this and now Zelina is frustrated for her team. Escobar and Ford rise, and Escobar goes to a corner, “L! W! O!” Escobar runs in, METEORA! Fireman’s carry, but Ford slips off to SUPERKICK! Tag to Dawkins and he fireman’s carries, T K O! Cover, TWO!! Escobar survives but Dawkins hauls him up. Escobar slips free to JUMP KNEE! Tag to Rey! Rey dodges Dawkins, tilt-o-whirls and DDTS! Fans fire up as Dawkins staggers up, and Rey dropkicks him into ropes!

Rey dials it up but Dawkins is up! SKY HIGH!! Cover, Escobar breaks it! Ford runs in but Escobar TOSSES Ford out! Dawkins DECKS Escobar! Rey runs in but Dawkins TOSSES him out, onto Ford! Dawkins sees what happened, hurries out but the ref has him stay in. So Lashley gets Rey with an APRON SPINEBUSTER!! Dawkins again sees what happened but takes advantage anyway, POWER- NO, Rey sunset flips! LWO WINS!!

Winners: Rey Mysterio & Santos Escobar, by pinfall

The Profits are stunned! Lashley tried to help but their hesitation may have cost them! Lashley shakes his head and heads out, will he forgive them for failing him? As for Rey & Escobar, both men are rolling into their friendly title match. Who comes away as not just the US Champion but as the true alpha of the LWO?


Austin Theory is here, but unexpectedly!

The Now jumps the railing to get in the face of commentary. He says the 153 MILLION views of The Rock’s return last week are because of him! Refs storm over to tell Theory to go, he’s not scheduled to be out here. Theory rants and raves, what will it take to appease that ego of his?


Alba Fyre & Isla Dawn speak.

“Since the beginning of time, magic has been in our blood. We see what others do not. It seems everyone that’s touched the women’s tag team titles have found… misfortune. Almost like… they’re cursed. Now, who would go and conjure a spell like that?” The Fire Keeper & The Wicked Witch are on their way back, who will be their first targets?


Pearce argues with Theory.

Theory can’t just go an hijack the show! Oh, Theory hijacked? What about last week with The Rock just showing up? But then as they arrive at Pearce’s office, The Brawling Brutes are waiting. Over 100 MILLION views, huh? That’s what they heard. All to see Theory get slapped and embarrassed by The Rock! Theory says no one embarrassed him, but then Grayson Waller walks over. He tells Theory to relax, these two “flops” are just jealous that they’re not real stars. Well what the Brutes do know about is fighting! So they’ll teach Waller & Theory all about it tonight! Pearce says that’s a hell of an idea! The Brawling Brutes VS Waller & Theory is official!

Then that means it is FIGHT NIGHT! Ridge Holland & Pete Dunne head out, Waller complains he has plans tonight and Theory brings up the 153 million views, but Pearce tells them enough! Pearce has to go talk to Heyman now. Theory and Waller complain, but the match is made! Will A-Town Down Under survive against Northern Grit & The Bruiserweight?


The Profits regroup with Lashley.

Lashley asks what was all that! They had it won and Dawkins didn’t finish this! He wants the watches, the suits and everything back! If they can’t pull the trigger, go sit in catering while he finds someone who can! Lashley storms off, what will the Profits do with this ultimatum?


Pearce finds Heyman on the phone.

Pearce asks if they can talk. Heyman explains to the person on the phone, more than likely The Tribal Chief. Will Roman join the conversation between Special Counsel and General Manager?


WWE Women’s Championship: Iyo Sky w/ Damage CTRL VS Asuka!

A main event anywhere and a dream match everywhere, the Evil Genius of the Sky and the Empress of Tomorrow have history that dates all the way back to when they were first starting their wrestling journeys. Will 15 YEARS of animosity explode here tonight? And who will walk away with the title when the smoke clears?

SmackDown returns and Iyo makes her entrance, Bayley and Dakota Kai by her side. The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see who is truly ICHIBAN!

The bell rings and wait! Charlotte Flair is here? The Queen loves the spotlight, and she knows DMG CTRL uses numbers to their advantage. She’s taking care of two birds with one stone, so will Bayley & Dakota behave? Iyo and Asuka circle, fans rally up and even duel as the two tie up. They go around, Asuka wrenches and wristlocks but Sky slips around to wristlock. Asuka wrenches to wristlock, Sky rolls and handsprings and wrenches back. Asuka rolls and wrenches then headlocks. Sky powers up but can’t power out as Asuka holds on tight! They fight up, Asuka grinds the hold, but Sky pops out to headlock back.

Asuka throws body shots, but now she can’t power out as Sky holds on tight! Asuka powers out the back, headlocks Sky again, then hits a takeover. Sky headscissors, Asuka kips free and roles reverse and Sky hits a headlock, Asuka headscissors and Sky kips free. They go again, Sky ducks ‘n’ dodges and handsprings but Asuka dodges. Fans fire up and even Charlotte applauds. Asuka offers a handshake, fans cheer, but Sky kicks the hand! So Asuka kicks a leg! Asuka whips, Sky reverses but Asuka turns hip toss into takedown and cover! TWO, and Asuka arm-drags! And arm-drags again! Asuka goes up a corner but Sky is right after her! SUPER ARM-DRAG!

Fans fire up as Asuka bails out. Sky goes to the apron to ASAI- NO, Asuka dodges, then ROUNDHOUSES Sky down! DMG CTRL is very worried as Asuka grins, and SmackDown goes to break.

SmackDown returns again and Asuka has Sky up top! They fight with body shots, fans fire up, and Sky ROCKS Asuka! Then HOTSHOTS an arm! Asuka flounders away and Sky takes aim. Sky springboards to MISSILE DROPKICK! Sky waits on Asuka, then runs to SLIDING KICK at the ropes! Asuka staggers up and Sky springboard MISSILE DROPKICKS again! Fans fire up and Sky is feeling it. Sky runs in, wheelbarrow, STOMP 182! Fans fire up more as Sky runs again, METEORA! Cover, TWO! Asuka escapes and Sky grits her teeth. Sky drags Asuka around, kicks her around, then brings Asuka to a drop zone.

Fans fire up as Sky goes up and up, but Asuka YANKS her down! Sky gets stuck on the top rope, Asuka fires up, but Sky SLAPS her back! So Asuka gives her KAWADA KICKS! The ref counts, Asuka lets off at 4, and then she climbs up after Sky again. Asuka fires up and the fans are with her! Asuka has Sky on the very top, to SUPER SUPER PLEX! Both women are down but Asuka crawls to a cover, TWO!! Sky survives and Asuka is beside herself! DMG CTRL is relieved, and Sky stands to fires off shots! Sky runs, into a KICK!! Cover, TWO!! Asuka stomps Sky around, runs, but Sky follows and SHOTEIS on the run! Cover, TWO!!

Asuka is still in this but the fans rally behind Sky. Sky drags Asuka up into a waistlock but Asuka reaches for ropes. Asuka gets the ROPEBREAK but Sky yanks her back into a GERMAN SUPLEX! Bridging cover, TWO!! And into a KIMURA HEADSCISSOR COMBO!! Sky is fading as Asuka has her caught! Then Asuka just shifts to a full ARMBAR!! Sky scrambles to stack, and she CLUBS away on Asuka’s chest! Sky then kicks but Asuka blocks! Sky slips free to ROUNDHOUSE Asuka down! Fans fire up as Asuka crawls to the corner. Bayley is there to talk trash, but Asuka still ELBOWS Sky away! And ROUNDHOUSEES!

Asuka goes up and up and MISSILE DROPKICKS! Sky flounders to a corner and Asuka runs in to ELBOW her down! Then GERMAN- No, Sky fights the suplex! Asuka shoves, POP-UP KNEE! URAKEN! SOBAT! KICK! URAKEN! HEEL KICK!! SLIDING KICK!! Cover, TWO!! Sky survives the onslaught, but Asuka goes for a FUJIWARA ARMBAR!! Sky endures, reaches out, but Asuka stomps the bad arm! “This is Awesome!” as Asuka storms around. Asuka goes up the corner again, but Sky hurries up to SPRINGBOARD DROPKICK! Asuka falls to the floor and fans are thunderous! Asuka hurries back up but Sky runs in to SHOTEI!

Sky runs again, to SUPER SUNSET- NO, Asuka holds the ropes! But Sky pries her free to POWERBOMB after all! Asuka hobbles up, ROUNDHOUSE but it hits POST! Sky avoids disaster and it bites Asuka in return! Sky hurries back into the ring, goes back up, and ARIHARA MOONSAULTS Asuka down!! DMG CTRL and Phoenix are all fired up as SmackDown goes to break!

SmackDown returns again and Sky has Asuka down in a chinlock. Asuka endures the knee in her back and fights up to her feet. Fans rally, Asuka rolls Sky up, TWO! Asuka swings, Sky ducks and GERMAN SUPLEXES! Bridging cover, TWO!! Asuka escapes and Sky can’t believe it! DMG CTRL coaches her and Sky drags Asuka into a CROSSFACE! Asuka kicks around, reaches out, but Sky shifts sides to keep her from ropes! Asuka still fights around, rolls Sky, pops free, ASUKA LOCK!! Sky flails, reaches out, claws at Asuka’s arm, and makes a cover, ONE!! BUZZSAW! Cover, ROPEBREAK!! Sky survives by fingertips!

Asuka seethes as she aims, but Sky ducks the buzzsaw to shove! Asuka mule kicks, goes up, and leaps, MISSILE DROPKICK again! Cover, TWO! Sky is still in this, Asuka grows frustrated, but then Asuka throws a forearm! Sky hits back, they brawl on their knees! Fans fire up as the shots keep going, and then they fight up! Sky fires forearms, then SHO- NO! ARMBAR TAKEDOWN!! Sky flails, reaches out, kicks around, stacks but Asuka shifts again! ASUKA LOCK!!! Sky flails, sits up, but Asuka keeps the chicken wing! Sky powers out but Asuka drags her back in! ASUKA LOCK!!! Sky fights and moves around, stands up, and elbows free!

Sky victory rolls, TWO! Asuka has it, ONE! ASUKA LOCK!! But Sky stays on her feet, only for Asuka to YANK her down! Sky flails, Charlotte watches but Bayley pushes the rope closer! Sky still can’t reach, but Charlotte hurries over. Bayley puts Sky’s foot on the ropes!? Charlotte DECKS Bayley for that! Fans are thunderous and Asuka says that’s what Bayley gets! But Sky DOUBLE KNEES Asuka down!! Sky goes up, OVER THE MOONSAULT!! Cover, Sky wins!!

Winner: Iyo Sky, by pinfall (still WWE Women’s Champion)

The Evil Genius gets a bit lucky thanks to Bayley taking the initiative! And also a forearm to the face. But will DMG CTRL have to worry about The Queen coming for the crown?


Heyman, Solo and Jimmy are in the private suite.

Jimmy says he ain’t scared. Pearce walks in and Jimmy has Solo stand down. Come on in, AP. Pearce brings the contract for the tag team match. Heyman says he’s sorry, he doesn’t care. As long as this match is not tonight, he’s fine with it. Pearce says it isn’t tonight. It’s at Fastlane. Who made that decision!? Jimmy says looks good to him. They’ll go out to the ring to sign that. Pearce will let Cena 7 Styles know. Yeet! Jimmy is happy but Heyman says that usually, decisions like that… need approval from The Tribal Chief. Jimmy says okay, let him know what Roman says. Jimmy then excuses himself.

Heyman sighs but Solo says don’t worry. He’ll make sure there won’t be anyone to fight them at Fastlane. Heyman sighs again and calls Roman again. Is the Bloodline falling apart more because of who is in rather than who is out?


Pretty Deadly speak.

Kit Wilson quotes Olivia Rodrigo, “It’s brutal out here.” And on the 14th of July, 2023, that sentiment echoed throughout the WWE as Elton Prince suffered a “catastrophic” shoulder injury at the hands of Ridge Holland. And now, Elton walks the long, difficult road to recover. AKA not being able to reach what was on the counter. Elton’s rehab is catching, shaking, getting hit with a medicine ball, standing up even though it’s not his leg that was hurt… And then falling over! Dr. Geena Meiame says he’ll be fine, it is just a separated shoulder. But Kit still gives Elton a pep talk to keep on fighting. That is beautiful. But careful with his hair. Right, sorry. #EltonStrong.


The Brawling Brutes VS Grayson Waller & Austin Theory!

Ridge Holland & Pete Dunne are always ready for FIGHT NIGHT! But with the Bruiserweight also set for his Heritage Cup Contender’s match on Tuesday, will he be able to spare some aggression for The Aussie Icon & The Now?

SmackDown returns and A-Town Down Under make their entrances. The teams sort out and Dunne starts against Theory. They rush in, Dunne dodges to CHOP and CHOP and whip. Theory reverses, then follows to LARIAT Dunne down! Theory brushes himself off, drags Dunne up to rain down fists! Fans boo but Theory looms over Dunne. Waller reaches out so Theory tags him in. They mug Dunne, then Waller cravats for a neck wrench. Waller throws knee after knee, then he drop steps to show off. Waller clamps onto an armlock but Dunne endures. Dunne wrenches back to FUJIWARA, then he bends fingers!

Dunne isolates the arm to STOMP it! Dunne runs in at Waller to ROCK him, then tag to Ridge. Feed to the facelock and SWING! Fans fire up as Ridge goes around five times, then underhooks to BUTTERLFY STALLING SUPLEX! Ridge grins, he stomps Waller’s fingers, then he drags Waller up to whip him to the corner. Ridge SPLASHES, Dunne tags in, and then Ridge KICKS and CLUBS Waller! Dunne slingshot STOMPS! Dunne looms over Waller, grabs that bad arm, but Waller pulls hair! Waller whips, Dunne dodges but Theory opens ropes so Dunne falls out! Fans boo but then Waller slides out. Dunne dodges, comes back, but Waller tosses him!

Dunne lands on his feet to have Waller against barriers! Ridge grabs Theory at the ropes, and we get DOUBLE BEATS OF THE BODHRAIN! Fans count along, all the way to TEN! Dunne and Ridge regroup and Phoenix is loving this as SmackDown goes to break.

SmackDown returns again and Theory has Dunne in an armlock. Dunne fights up and fires off forearms! Dunne runs, but into an ELBOW! Cover, TWO! Theory is frustrated but he rains down fists! Waller hypes Theory up, then Theory tags Waller. They stomp away on Dunne, then Waller stomps Dunne’s legs. Waller drags Dunne up, throws knees, then tags Theory. Fans chant “THEORY SUCKS!” but he whips Waller in to clothesline Dunne! Theory says what? What? Tag to Waller. Waller whips but it’s a fake out! Theory sends Waller at Ridge so he can slide and trip Ridge! Theory SPLASHES Dunne!

Ridge chases Waller but Waller still clotheslines Dunne! Fans boo but Waller taunts Ridge. Waller then drags Dunne up on the ropes, and fans boo more as Waller parodies the Bodhrain! But Dunne PULLS those fingers, and SNAPS them! Waller shouts, Dunne slingshots up and over, tag to Ridge! Northern Grit rallies on A-Town Down Under! Scoop and SLAM for Waller! then an EXPLODER! Then another EXPLODER! Ridge blocks Waller’s haymakers, to OVERHEAD BELLY2BELLY! Cover, TWO! Waller calls to Theory but fans rally behind Ridge. Ridge scoops, Waller slips free and tags Theory.

Waller ELBOWS Ridge, then he and Theory DOUBLE CHOP BLOCK! Theory DECKS Ridge! Cover, Dunne breaks it! Dunne ROCKS Waller, Waller ROCKS Dunne! Waller fires off more shots but Dunne MONKEY FILPS him up and out! Theory ROCKS Dunne, Waller slingshots, but into a POUNCE from Ridge!! Fans fire up as Theory somersaults, but into a gorilla press! Ridge then POWERSLAMS Theory! Cover, TWO!! Ridge can’t believe it but Theory survives! Fans rally up for Ridge as he stands. Dunne goes up the corner, to ASAI MOONSAULT Waller! Ridge gut wrenches Theory, but Theory claws eyes and rolls Ridge up! TWO!

Theory fireman’s carries, but Ridge fights free to HEADBUTT! And then Alabama Lift, ALABAMA SLAM! Cover, TWO!! Theory is still in this, but Ridge won’t let off! Theory kicks, Ridge blocks, and Ridge works to turn Theory over! BOSTON CRAB! Fans fire up as Theory endures! Dunne catches Waller in a SLEEPER! Waller flails, but he RAMS Dunne into a post! Dunne falls, Waller ROLLING STUNNERS!! Theory fireman’s carries, A-TOWN DOWN!! Cover, A-Town Down Under wins!!

Winners: Austin Theory & Grayson Waller, by pinfall

The fans may not like it, but this young team of young stars just won a huge match! And with the Undisputed Tag Team Championships on the line this Monday on Raw, will Theory & Waller look to be next in line?


Adam Pearce is in the ring.

He welcomes us to this official contract signing for the tag team “main event” at Fastlane! So without further ado, welcome THE Greatest Of All Time, John Cena! Cena makes his way back out and is much more business than he was even earlier tonight. He grabs the pen and already signs his part! Pearce says Cena’s tag team partner is The Phenomenal AJ Styles! The music hits, but we see Jimmy & Solo mugging Styles backstage!! Fans boo as Jimmy rains down fists on Styles, and then SMACKS him off a road case! Solo watches from higher above! Cena rushes out of the ring, Jimmy shoves Styles off the case, and Solo shouts before a SUPER SPLASH!!

Jimmy is all fired up but referees and producers shout at Jimmy! Jimmy says sorry, but The Enforcer may have just crushed Styles! And even electric equipment that starts sparking! Medics clear things out, Cena shows up, and the call is put in for an ambulance! Will the Fastlane match be cancelled just like Solo wanted?


SmackDown returns with Styles on a stretcher!

Cena and The OC are there as Styles is being strapped in and moved to the ambulance. Meanwhile, Paul Heyman heads to the ring. Fans boo as the Special Counsel, with no music, walks to the ring. Styles is loaded in, Mia rides with him, and Karl Anderson tells Cena this is why they shouldn’t get involved with The Bloodline. The ambulance heads out, what is Cena to do now?

And back to the ring, Jimmy & Solo have joined Heyman now. Jimmy mocks the fans booing them, and they go tot he table. Solo CHUCKS the armchairs out, and then the table! Heyman wants Solo to calm down but Jimmy just revels in this moment. Heyman holds the contract in one hand, microphone in the other. “Ladies and gentlemen…” The fans boo harder as Heyman tries to introduce himself. Heyman laughs it off as the fans booing themselves. But Heyman continues, only getting more boos. They can boo him kosher tukus all they want. But lo and behold, he has in his hand a contract signed by the second greatest of all time, John Cena, but with no tag team partner!

Now, that’s- Jimmy snatches the mic?! “Well look what happens when you mess with the Bloodline! Ey yo, John! If you smart like you say you smart, you would jump your ass in that ambulance with AJ Styles, and would go far, far, far away from The Bloodline. But hey, hey, check this out! John gonna end up in an ambulance anyways. That’s not a prediction, that’s a spoiler! And John, check this out, Uce. I’ve been waiting to tell you this. You the two! And we-” CENA IS BACK! Cena brawls with Solo, whips him into the steps, then goes after Jimmy! BIG shoulder tackle! SPIN OUT BOMB! Off comes the shirt, but Solo returns!

Cena gets Solo in a fireman’s carry but Jimmy SUPERKICKS him down! Fans boo but now The Bloodline has Cena all alone! Solo puts a thumb up and Jimmy nods! SAMOAN SPIKE!! Down goes Cena! Fans boo and Jimmy says he sees him! Jimmy goes to a corner, a ref reprimands but he says there’s no problem. Jimmy and Solo then stomp away on Cena! Fans boo harder but Jimmy just soaks it all up! Jimmy goes up the corner, looks down on Cena, and then grins as he takes aim. Solo drags Cena up again?! ANOTHER SAMOAN SPIKE?!?! Jimmy then says “YOU CAN’T SEE ME!” USO SPLASH!!

Heyman is stunned but also not complaining, until Jimmy takes the contract. Jimmy signs his part, and Heyman says Solo might as well. Solo signs his part, so now it might end up a Handicap match for Fastlane? Jimmy then places the contract on Cena’s chest, and goes back up top! USO SPLASH AGAIN!! Fans haven’t stopped booing for even a nanosecond, but Jimmy and Solo raise their fingers. Are they the ones who will end John Cena’s career?

My Thoughts:

A great SmackDown, using a “less is more” approach here. Cena wanting to wrestle tonight is great character stuff, and it naturally led to a tag team story with him, Styles, Jimmy & Solo. But it also made a lot of sense for Jimmy & Solo to at least seemingly sideline Styles here, somewhat proving Machine Gun Anderson right. I’m sure Styles makes a “miraculous” comeback, a very Cena move in itself, and we still get the tag match at Fastlane. At the most dramatic, Styles will show up during the match as it seems Cena is about to lose. If only Gallows wasn’t legit hurt, he could have a part to play in this, too, maybe a go-home tag of Jimmy & Solo VS Good Brothers.

Great tag matches tonight, too. Rey & Escobar VS The Profits went a different direction than I expected, but I do appreciate them showing us the Heel turn in progress rather than just making The Profits bad guys right away. Lashley wants them to get that edge but the Profits haven’t really been that kind of team before so they have to learn how to unlock that. And they will definitely unlock that, perhaps even ruining the US Championship match. Lashley will be proud, and then Lashley steps in so he gets a US Championship match. Maybe at Fastlane, as there haven’t been that many matches made for it.

They made a good move using what happened with The Rock, McAfee and Theory as story. Theory is still self-involved but he and Waller get a great tag match with The Brawling Brutes. “A-Town Down Under” gets the win rather cleanly, but also on Ridge so that Dunne still has individual momentum going into NXT’s go-home to No Mercy. Pretty Deadly had a good and funny vignette with Elton playing up having bad legs when it’s his arm. Not quite AEW’s “Neck Strong” with Roddy & The Kingdom but hey, they’re doing it with their flavor of Heel. And Pretty Deadly might even be so bold as to think they can get revenge on The Brawling Brutes for their return match.

Just as I was wondering on NXT where Alba & Isla have been, we get a really well made vignette from them. And I really like that they’re kayfabing the “curse” of the women’s tag titles where partners get hurt. Chelsea & Piper should really show up on SmackDown to spark a feud with them, and I personally would put the tag titles back on Alba & Isla. They were used as a catalyst for Shayna VS Ronda, they deserve to get back on track from where they were after being called up as NXT Women’s Tag Team Champions.

And then just an awesome match for the WWE Women’s Championship. They were busting out their best, might’ve actually started running low on energy near the end because Sky “fighting” the Asuka Lock wasn’t as strong as it could’ve been. But also, I personally would NOT have sent Charlotte out there before the match got going. The fans were going “WOO~” when the focus should’ve be on the women IN the match. Logically, Charlotte counters Bayley’s cheating, but it doesn’t cost Iyo, it costs Asuka. Charlotte VS Bayley is coming, and maybe this shifts things towards Charlotte VS Sky for the title. Because duh, it’s Charlotte. If Dakota wasn’t hurt, I would’ve liked a Six Woman Tag, DMG CTRL VS Charlotte, Asuka & Shotzi.

My Score: 8.9/10

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




AEW is going big for this milestone Dynamite!

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


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


AEW International Championship: Will Ospreay VS MJF!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Ospreay CHOPS again, MJF flails more. Ospreay snarls, runs, but MJF CHOP BLOCKS the legs! MJF covers, TWO! MJF frowns but he stomps Ospreay’s leg. MJF then stands Ospreay up to CLUB him on the neck!

The fans fire up again while Ospreay again clutches the leg.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Ospreay gets stuck up there, MJF goes up to LEAPING LARIAT!! Cover, TWO?!? MJF is beside himself as Ospreay survives again! MJF stalks Ospreay to the apron, drags him up, and gut wrenches!

Ospreay waistlocks but the arm won’t let him lift! So Ospreay SUPERKICKS MJF instead! MJF wobbles, Ospreay reels him in, and tucks him for an APRON STYLES CLASH!!! Both men fall to the floor and Little Rock is losing its collective mind right now!

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

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

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

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

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

MJF reels Ospreay in, for an APRON HEATSEEKER!! Ospreay flops to the floor, and MJF looks at the table…! MJF puts Ospreay on the table, hurries back to the corner, and MJF climbs! The fans are going nuts already as MJF SUPER MACHO ELBOWS THROUGH THE TABLE!!!

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

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

Dynamite 250 returns again, and MJF has Ospreay in a Cobra Twist. MJF sneakily grabs the ropes to add on leverage! The ref looks but MJF lets go in time. Ospreay still endures, and MJF digs a knuckle into the ribs. MJF then again sneaks a grab at the ropes! The ref gets closer to catching him but the fans tell on MJF! MJF tells them all to shut up!

But then MJF runs up, KANGAROO- NO! Ospreay catches MJF!

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

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

Ospreay throws off the elbow pad as Little Rock is erupting! MJF sits up, but DUCKS the Hidden Blade! Ospreay tumbles but MJF is also down, too tired to sit back up.

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

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


Backstage interview Mark Briscoe & The Acclaimed.

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

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

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


“Big Bill” Morrissey is in the ring.

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

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

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

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


The Elite speak.

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

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

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


AEW TBS Championship: Mercedes Mone VS Nyla Rose!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


Jack Perry speaks.

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


Toni Storm is here!

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

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

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


AEW shares post show footage from Collision.

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

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


Swerve Strickland w/ Prince Nana VS Kazuchika Okada!

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

Swerve eggs Okada on, so Okada ROCKS him! Swerve ROCKS Okada back!

The forearms go back and forth, then they pick up speed! Okada dares Swerve to hit him, so Swerve kicks low! Swerve whips, Okada reverses to then FLAPJACK! Swerve tumbles out of the ring but Okada pursues. Okada runs up to kick and DDT to the floor! Swerve writhes and Okada just watches him while Dynamite goes picture in picture.

The ring count climbs, but Okada drags Swerve up. Okada brings Swerve over, SMACKS him off steps, and he stalks Swerve around the way. Okada SMACKS Swerve off the steps again! Okada refreshes the count, then pursues Swerve. Swerve rolls into the ring but Okada drags him out. Okada RAMS Swerve into the barriers! The fans are torn but Okada just goes back into the ring.

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

My Thoughts:

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

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

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

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

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

My Score: 9.1/10
