The FedEx Forum gives this a standing ovation! They witnessed a dream match live up to the hype, and while Bryan won, he shows respect to Andrade. When and where will we see these two go again? Will either man have made it to- Wait, why did the lights just go down? And when the lights come back up, BLACK MASS!! Malakai Black is back and he just knocked Bryan right out! The fans are losing their minds, the BCC rush out, but the lights go out again! And of course, when they turn back on, Malakai is gone. The Dark Father has struck first, but what does the House of Black want from the Blackpool Combat Club?

 

Darby Allin speaks.

“Nick Wayne, when you first got to AEW, you always used to say, ‘Darby, why do the fans hate me so much? I worked my whole life to get here, why do they hate me so much?'” Nick used to read the comments online, people saying Nick’s too young and not ready. Darby said not to listen to those words, because when you’re on your deathbed, none of those words matter. But what’d Nick do? He listened to them. And then he let them take away everything. But even with a fractured shoulder, Darby took Nick’s tooth. And then, when Darby’s 100%, he’ll take away a lot more.

So if Nick wants to tell Darby something, Darby will be there on Dynamite this Wednesday when Tony Khan gives Sting that gift. And if it’s what Darby thinks it is, then it’s gonna be special. The Relentless One is living up to that nickname, but will Nick be man enough to confront him?

 

Skye Blue VS Hollyhood Hayley!

She may be wearing Scooby-Doo inspired gear, but it isn’t a mystery that her attitude is changing. Will Skye only get darker as time goes on?

The bell rings, Skye and Hayley circle, and fans rally up. They tie up, go around, and Skye puts Hayley in the corner. Skye lets off, but Hayley shoves her. Skye gets in Hayley’s face, bumps her, then gets around to throw her down! Skye scuffs Hayley, pie faces her, but Hayley ROCKS Skye! And CHOPS! And runs, but Skye follows to CLOBBER her! Fans fire up with Skye and she rains down fists! The ref counts about the hair pulling and Skye lets off, but gives Hayley one more haymaker. Skye drags Hayley up, but Hayley wrenches, SLAPS, CHOPS and runs, to leg sweep! Hayley keeps moving, “YEET!” BULLDOG!

Fans are fired up for Hayley and they chant “YEET! YEET! YEET!” Hayley runs in at the corner, Skye dodges and tucks Hayley in, CHEEKY NANDOS! And a RUNNING POWERBOMB! Skye scowls and she drags Hayley up. Skye runs, hops on, CODE BLUE!! Cover, Skye wins!

Winner: Skye Blue, by pinfall

Skye wins but doesn’t seem happy about it. What will it take for Skye to feel like herself again? Or is this just who Skye is now?

 

The Gunns w/ Jay White VS The Outrunners!

The Switchblade stole Triple B, and Juice Robinson is getting ready to take the Dynamite Diamond Ring, so that leaves Austin & Colten to get going again in the tag division. Will they shoot down Turbo Floyd & Truth Magnum to get back on track? Or will Turbo & Truth be the throwbacks that never go outta style?

The teams sort out and Colten starts against Turbo. Fans fire up, Colten and Turbo tie up, and Turbo arm-drags! Turbo spins around and fans fire up, but Colten resets with him. They tie up, go around, and Turbo hits a hip toss! Turbo flexes, Colten is annoyed, and he DECKS Turbo! Colten bumps Turbo off buckles, stomps a mudhole in, but lets off as the ref counts. Colten stomps Turbo more, lets off again, but Truth runs in. Colten JABS then DROPKICKS Truth down! Tag to Austin, he drags Truth up to send into Turbo hard! Fans boo as Austin stomps a mudhole into both Outrunners! The ref counts, Austin TOSSES Truth!

Tag to Colten, he brings Turbo up, and they load up for 3:10 TO YUMA! Cover, Gunns win!

Winners: The Gunns, by pinfall

Just as the Bang Bang Gang says, Gunns are up! Will Bullet Club Gold look to add more gold, and even some diamonds, to the collection? Wait, the lights go out again!? Is this… No, not House of Black, but THE DEVIL OF AEW! He looks at the camera, and then the video glitches out. Fans chant for MJF, but White is not as amused. He wants MJF or whoever this is to show himself, but nothing happens. BCG heads out, will they get answers on Dynamite when Juice takes on MJF?

 

Backstage interview with Orange Cassidy.

Lexi Nair is with the AEW International Champion, because immediately after Collision is Battle of the Belts 8. Cassidy will defend this title against John Silver, and Kris Statlander will be defending her title against Willow Nightingale. Actually, Kris steps into frame and starts pacing. Lexi brings up that this will be Cassidy’s first defense since regaining the title, but Kris speaks up. She needs a pump but can’t find anything, so does Lexi mind? Huh? What? Kris fireman’s carries Lexi to do squats! Now Kris feels great! Is Orange ready? Is he? Is he? Yeah, sure. Okay! Battle of the Belts, don’t miss it!

 

Memphis Street Fight: Eddie Kingston VS Jeff Jarrett w/ Team Triple J!

Memphis commentary legend Dave Brown joins the team for this match, he’s called many of The Last Outlaw’s matches in those early days. But will the Mad King even have a chance when the entire circus is with the ring leader? Or will Eddie make sure Lethal earns the ROH World Championship opportunity all on his own?

Eddie eggs Jarrett on, so Jarrett rushes up the ramp with a trash can lid! Eddie dodges to then fire off haymakers! The bell rings and the brawl is on! Lethal runs in but Eddie back drops him to the ramp! Eddie has a kendo stick, he SMACKS Jarrett, SMACKS Sonjay, glares at Karen, then SMACKS Satnam! Satnam stays up, so Eddie SMACKS him more! Satnam takes the kendo stick to BREAK it! So Eddie LOW BLOWS Satnam! Jarrett SMACKS Eddie with a traffic cone! And SMACKS him with the trash can lid! And then the trash can itself! Sonjay helps out, they beat Eddie down with street signs!

Jarrett brings Eddie around to SMACK him off the concessions table! And SMACKS him with a drink cooler! Eddie ROCKS Jarrett in return, CHOKES him on the picnic table, then rains down fists! Fans fire up and Eddie has a trash can lid. Eddie SMACKS Jarrett in the head! Then RAMS the cooler into Jarrett’s junk! Then takes out the hot dogs and buns to throw them all at Jarrett! Then he throws the cooler! Fans fire up as Eddie whips but Jarrett stops himself. Jarrett sends Eddie into railing! Then he sends railing into Eddie!! Fans rally for Eddie but Jarrett moves the table around, to SMACK Eddie with a trash can lid!

Eddie hobbles, Jarrett grabs a trash can, and he runs to RAM Eddie with it! Eddie staggers, Jarrett grabs ketchup and mustard, but Eddie kicks and HEADBUTTS back! Then he gives Jarrett the condiment attack! Mustard on his back, ketchup in his hair, Jarrett is put on the table like a burger ready to be served. Eddie goes up to the stage, but Karen CLAWS Eddie, and Lethal gets Eddie, LETHAL INJECTION through the table!! Memphis loses its mind while Jarrett stands up. Jarrett soaks up the heat, then he drags Eddie from the wreckage as Collision goes picture in picture.

Jarrett SLAMS part of the busted table down on Eddie! Eddie is busted open! Jarrett SMACKS him with a serving tray! Jarrett leaves Eddie behind to go to the ring, and Eddie staggers up. Jarrett throws things out of a trash can, to get to the prize at the bottom: a barbed-wire bat!! Jarrett brings “Barbie” over to JAM Eddie in the stomach! And JAM him in the back of the leg! Jarrett checks his hands that he didn’t cut himself, but Sonjay puts a traffic cone on Eddie’s head like an old dunce cap. Then Jarrett SMACKS Eddie down using a chair!

Eddie hurries to get the can first! Eddie SMACKS Jarrett right in the head, and Collision goes to break.

Eddie is dazed but Jarrett gets a steel pipe! Jarrett CLUBS away on Eddie’s legs with it! Eddie writhes, Sonjay fetches a trash can, and Jarrett uses it to SMASH Eddie’s leg! Fans tell Jarrett off, Karen tells them to shut up but they just boo more. Jarrett SMASHES Eddie’s leg again and again! Jarrett has his guitar but puts it aside so he can use another trash can to SMASH the leg! Jarrett JAMS Eddie with a bar table!

Fans boo as Jarrett uses a bar stool to JAM away on Eddie’s leg! Then the trash can leg!! Jarrett just hammers away until the lid is bent! One more SMASH of the trash can! Fans boo as Jarrett steps through, FIGURE FOUR!! Eddie endures, shakes his head, and fans rally up behind him. Eddie flips off all of Triple J! Eddie grits his teeth but Jarrett thrashes the leg! Eddie’s on his shoulders so that’s a cover, TWO! Eddie glares at Jarrett, reaches out, SLAPS him, but Jarrett pulls back! Eddie falls back again, but TWO as he sits back up! Eddie works to turn the hold! Fans fire up and Eddie flips the figure four!!

Jarrett endures, but Lethal is up top! But then Eddie rolls away and Lethal flops off the mat! Eddie and Jarrett get loose of the leglock, and Eddie DECKS Lethal! And CHOPS Jarrett! CHOP for Lethal!

Winner: Jeff Jarrett, by pinfall (Jay Lethal has an ROH World Championship match)

Memphis boos, embarrassed that this group represents them. But will Eddie have sweet revenge when he gets to tear into Lethal in their coming title match?

 

Backstage interview with The Acclaimed & Billy Gunn.

Lexi is now with the AEW World Trios Champions, who will also be in action at Battle of the Belts tonight. But what’s going on? Bowens & Billy stop coaching Caster and he says hi to Lexi. Talk about Battle of the Belts, how about she use a belt on him? DAMMIT, MAX! Billy pleads with Lexi and apologizes. Caster is in this transitional phase of sorts, but hey, on the bright side, they have been Trios Champs for FIFTY-FIVE DAYS! So if Garcia, Menard & Parker think that after getting out of Jericho’s nest, the next step is them taking the trios titles, UH-UH! Don’t think so.

And from what we saw on Dynamite, Daddy Magic with his baked potato lookin’ self couldn’t get on the same page with Garcia. So between that and Ange needing to cool his hands, Acclaimed is gonna light dat ass up all over Memphis! Because EVERYONE loves The Acclaimed~! They scissor finger, but will their run be cut short?

 

Miro VS Action Andretti w/ CJ Perry!

The Redeemer doesn’t want his hot, flexible wife, CJ Perry, around distracting him, and he doesn’t want her relapsing into the addiction that is fame and fortune in pro-wrestling. Will Miro use incredibly tough love to stop CJ’s return before it gets going? Or will the Sight to See help CJ take flight in AEW?

The bell rings and Miro circles with Action. Miro corners Action, throws body shots and kicks and stomps! The ref counts, Miro lets off, but then Miro storms back up to DECK Action! Fans rally up for Miro, he drags Action up and TOSSES Action, but Action lands on his feet! Miro is not impressed, but then Action DROPKICKS! And DROPKICKS! Action dodges, returns, and pop-up DROPKICKS! Fans fire up as Miro gets up, and Action dropkicks the legs out! Actions springboards, into a POLISH HAMMER!! And yet CJ is smiling? She does still love Miro’s power. Miro drags Action up to short arm LARIAT!

Fans fire up and Miro storms up on Action, to short arm LARIAT again! Miro feeds off the energy, he drags Action up again and he short arm LARIATS! Then he POSTS Action, and Action tumbles out of the ring! Miro looks at CJ and she applauds as Collision goes picture in picture.

Miro stands on a corner to soak up the adulation of Memphis, and CJ rolls her eyes. Miro goes out to fetch Action, and whips him hard into steel steps! Action writhes, Miro storms up on him, and Miro brings Action around the way to TOSS into railing! CJ gets up, Miro takes her chair, but he decides not to hit Action. Miro puts Action in the ring, covers, TWO! Action is somehow still in this but Miro clamps on a chinlock. Miro squeezes Action, grinds him down, but Action endures. Action fights up but Miro ELBOWS him again and again! Miro KICKS Action in the back and fans fire up. Miro slaps Action around, and Action seethes.

Action fires a forearm but Miro eggs him on. Action throws another forearm, but Miro DECKS him! Miro eggs Action on, stands him up, then kicks him down. Action  stands to throw hands but Miro DECKS him again! Miro stands Action up, runs, but into a BOOT! Action BOOTS back! Miro shoves and CLOBBERS Action, and fans fire up again. CJ is less amused this time, but Miro has the fans continue to rally as Collision returns to single picture. Miro stalks Action, clamps on with a chinlock, but Action fights up. Miro taunts CJ to coach her client, but Action pries at the hold. Action throws body shots, then JAWBREAKERS!

Miro staggers, but he comes back, only for Action to counter punch! And again, and again, and again! Action fires off, Miro shoves him, then Miro ducks a roundhouse. But Action ENZIGURIS! Action runs to UPPERCUT in the corner, then he climbs up to rain down fists! The fans count, Action stops at nine and Miro shoves him away. Miro runs up but Action dumps him out! Then Action HANDSPRING KICKS Miro down! Miro hits the floor, Action builds speed to FLY! Direct hit and down goes Miro! CJ doesn’t seem as pleased as Action puts Miro in the ring. CROSSBODY, but Miro catches Action to SLAM him down!

Miro snarls, he stomps around, and fans fire up as he shouts for it! Stomp and then a kiss to his wife, GAME OVER!! But Action slips right out?! Action dodges Miro and rolls him up! TWO!!! Miro scoops Action, but Action tilt-o-whirl DDTs!! Action runs in to SHOTGUN Miro down!! Miro is in a drop zone, Action hurries up and springboards to 450 SPLASH!! Cover, ONE?!?! Miro still has power to spare but Action isn’t giving up. Action brings Miro up, torture racks, but Miro slips free to shove and BEST KICK! NOW GAME OVER!!! Action is OUT, Miro wins!!

Winner: Miro, by submission

The ref tells Miro to let go, he’s won! Miro lets go of Action, and CJ applauds but still looks annoyed. Will Miro succeed by keeping CJ from doing the same? Or will CJ find a client who can rival The Redeemer?

 

Backstage interview with the former Jericho Appreciation Society.

Lexi is now with Daniel Garcia, Angelo Parker, Matthew Menard & Anna Jay. They’re preparing to challenge The Acclaimed, and last night on Rampage, it appeared they “squashed the beef.” Is said beef still squashed? Anna snatches the mic to say, “Excuse me, lil miss priss! Trying to stir the pot? We are on the same page, we are on the same team. We are professionals, and we are gonna win tonight.” Menard says the whole world wants to know if they’re on the same page. And this morning, 9 AM, y’know what they did? They had a family breakfast, some croissants and some coffees, no problem.

Y’know what they didn’t have? No dancing! It was a great morning, a great breakfast! Garcia rolls his eyes and Parker sighs, but Anna wants them to stop already. They cannot do this again! What? Menard was just joking! They all head out, Lexi brings in another guest in Ruby Soho. Ruby says, “Family problems?” Parker admits, things are falling apart. Ruby knows the feeling. Yeah, but at least after tonight, Parker can still call his family champions. Aw, sweet. Not get outta her shot. Parker leaves, and Ruby stops Lexi before she starts. It seems everyone around here thinks they deserve a title match!

Y’know who deserves a title match? RUBY SOHO. She’s putting down the gauntlet! Whoever and wherever, from Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, it doesn’t matter! Ruby is going to become champion because it is what she deserves! The Runaway heads out, and she has a title match this Wednesday on Dynamite against Hikaru Shida! Will this Outcast finally have her golden moment in AEW?

 

AEW hears from La Faccion Ingobernable.

Jose has everyone focus, because this has to be perfect. Rush is gonna be here any moment. Rush arrives in his Bentley, Jose opens the door so that he, Dralistico y Preston Vance can exit. They go to a board room, and Rush says his business has always been LFI. His business has always been about making money. He worked too hard to get here to not be seen as a star. And he’s sick and tired of all these other wrestlers taking the opportunities. He is sick and tired of not being on TV just because the company says Rush is “too dangerous.” Rush learned English, he learned to change his style up, and for what? Just to watch all the others get what RUSH deserves?!

El Toro Blanco is raging, ready to take what he wants. Will AEW soon belong to LFI?

 

Eddie Kingston is backstage.

He tells the medic to give him some space. And he tells Lethal, “You wanna know why I had you jump through hoops to earn this title shot? It’s because you call a man who’s not your blood ‘Uncle.’ How does your mother and father feel about that?” The Lethal that Eddie remembers used to love pro-wrestling, “the mistress that we all love. The woman that will never love us back.” That used to be Lethal, until he hung out with that carny SOB, Jarrett, and Sonjay, his little lapdog! Eddie used to be someone that respected Lethal, but now look at the man Lethal has become! Lethal’s no longer a man, no longer a pro-wrestler! Lethal is Jeff’s little b*tch!

What happened to Lethal?! Do NOT bring them to this fight! If Lethal is man enough, he will NOT bring Triple J. Eddie tells Lethal to NOT bring his mother and father, people Eddie knows, to their match. Eddie knows “Jamar” too! Don’t bring ’em, Lethal! Because what’ll break Eddie’s heart the most, what will hurt Eddie deep down the most, is the fact that Eddie will have to beat Lethal down in front of his beautiful mother! And the sick thing is, she’ll cry for Lethal! But not because Eddie’s beating Lethal, but because she knows her baby boy deserves it! Lethal has lost his way. He gets his title shot, congrats. But find your way before you come at Eddie again!

Eddie throws the table over and sits back down, will nothing stop the Mad King from keeping his crown?

 

FTR VS Bad Thad Brown & Darian Bengston!

Cash Wheeler & Dax Harwood may not be getting their tag title rematch tonight, but they don’t mind. They’ll fight their way back up to the top, and that starts tonight! Will these two be Top Guys again sooner rather than later?

The teams sort out and Cash starts against Thad. Fans rally up for FTR but Thad attacks from behind! Thad CLUBS away on Cash, wrenches and whips, but Cash reverses to then trophy lift! Darian gets in but Cash throws Thad at him! Dax gets in to TOSS Darian to a corner, Cash CHOPS Thad to another, and- Oh no! Another lights out!? What is going on tonight!? The lights are back up, and MALAKAI is back!! But then the lights go back out, and then the rest of the House of Black is back! Brody & Buddy attack FTR, Malakai helping out! The match is of course called off, but fans fire up as Brody hoots and barks.

Brody holds up his hand, it’s got a heavy cast on it! Buddy & Malakai stand Cash up, to then TOSS him at Brody’s HAYMAKER! And on the cast is written “DEATH.” FTR are down, Malakai smiles and mutters something, then the fans hoot and bark with Brody. The House of Black has made a major impact on tonight’s Collision, who else will be torn down to rebuild their foundation?

 

AEW World Tag Team Championships: Ricky Starks & “Big Bill” Morrissey VS Claudio Castagnoli & Wheeler Yuta!

The Absolute said no to a rematch with FTR, they want new challengers. And so, here they are! Will the Blackpool Combat Club’s Swiss Superman and Decoder cut the Absolute reign short? Or will Ricky & Big Bill stay the top dogs of AEW?

The introductions are made, the belts are raised, and we see if the BCC gets revenge!

The teams sort out and Yuta starts against Starks in a rematch from WrestleDream. They circle, then Starks bails out to do some cardio. Bill says keep that heartrate up, but then Starks has to literally run away from Claudio. Starks gets in the ring, circles then ties up with Yuta, and the two go around. Bill applauds Starks as he wrenches to a wristlock. Yuta rolls, handsprings, wrenches back and snapmares to drop a knee on the arm! Yuta slaps Starks around, Starks hits back, but Yuta traps that arm and chinlocks. Starks endures, fights around, but Yuta ghost pins, TWO!! Starks escapes and goes for a leg but Yuta rolls with him.

Yuta taunts Starks, waistlocks him, but Starks slips around. They go back and forth, hold for hold, and fans cheer the technical exchange as the two break up. Yuta smirks at Starks while Starks frowns. Starks SPITS at Yuta, then tags out to Bill. Yuta cleans himself off, Bill calls out Claudio, but Yuta circles with Bill instead. They tie up, Bill knees low, then CLUBS Yuta down! Yuta CHOPS! Bill TOSSES Yuta to a corner then ROCKS Yuta! Bill taunts Yuta, ROCKS him again, then ROCKS him again! Yuta CHOPS, Bill CHOKES Yuta then CHOPS him! Yuta falls over and fans fire up. Starks struts while Bill blocks Yuta from Claudio.

Bill stands Yuta up, puts him in the corner, and he CHOPS! And UPPERCUTS! The ref counts, Starks taunts Yuta, and Bill CHOKES Yuta! The ref counts again, Bill lets off and Yuta sputters. Yuta CHOPS and forearms, but Bill UPPERCUTS again! Bill whips Yuta up and out but Yuta lands on the apron! Yuta RAMS into Bill, but Starks distracts him. Bill BLASTS Yuta off the apron and to the floor! Bill tags Starks and Starks fetches Yuta to RAM him into railing! Starks grabs the BCC shirt to put it over Yuta’s head, and then he drags Yuta around by it! Starks SLINGS Yuta into more railing as Collision goes picture in picture!

Starks soaks up the cheers and jeers but the ref reprimands him and Bill. Starks puts Yuta back in the ring, keeps him from Claudio, and drags him back to tag Bill. Bill swipes at Claudio but Claudio gets clear. Claudio shakes his head, but Starks stomps Yuta. Bill looms over Yuta, drags him up by his hair, but the ref reprimands. Bill throws Yuta down by his hair, then CHOKES him on the ropes! The ref counts, Bill lets off at 4, and Bill whips Yuta corner to corner hard! Yuta flops to the mat, Starks applauds, and Bill soaks up the heat. Starks gets on a mic to say something as Bill puts Yuta in a corner.

The House continues to affect tonight, but why did they do this to BCC & FTR? They stomp away on Yuta now! Starks & Bill let it be, since the House isn’t after them. But here comes Bryan! He wants revenge, but he gets mugged by everyone! Starks and the House seem to have common enemies in Bryan, but then wait! FTR rush out! They get mugged, too, there’s nothing they can do! WAIT! JON MOXLEY is here!! He storms in from the crowd side, and he CLOBBERS Bill! Moxley rushes in, and now the tides turn! Fans go nuts as this 6v5 brawl goes against the House and the Absolute! Fans wanna “WHOOP THAT TRICK!” as BCC & FTR stand tall!

It seems battlelines are drawn, and Starks fires up his side. The House is with him, until they’re not! Malakai, Buddy & Brody leave, Starks goes into the ring all alone, and he’s confused! But not for long, as he gets fed to the SHATTER MACHINE!! And a PARADIGM SHIFT! Cash mocks Starks’ pose, and the fans fire up for this strange alliance of BCC & FTR. Then Claudio figures they’ve still got TV time, so he puts Starks back in the GIANT SWING! Cash even plays skip-it with that! Starks goes around and around, past ten! Past fifteen! Past TWENTY! Past THIRTY! Starks is gonna puuuuke~!

But why did the House even go after these #TopGuys? Will it matter when Dax, Cash, Bryan, Claudio, Yuta & Moxley come knocking on the door?


My Thoughts:

A great Collision here, with some pretty wild stuff with the House of Black returning like they did. A great detail to it is that they started after Bryan VS Andrade. Bryan VS Andrade was awesome stuff, and just when you think they want to continue story with Andrade, nope! Then they add FTR by ruining their what would’ve just be a squash match anyway, and then ruin things for Claudio & Yuta. That tag title main event was awesome even with that happening, and this was a clever way to keep Starks & Bill from losing the titles but without really hurting Claudio & Yuta in the tag division. And up until House of Black left Starks high and dry, I really thought this was gonna be a 5v5 thing, like Blood & Guts at Full Gear, or some sort of Survivor Series elimination parody.

Also, I guess this really does mean Andrade isn’t reuniting with LFI to face House of Black. Rush had another good promo as part of this LFI return hype, and I especially liked his line about learning English and adjusting to American style. It speaks to how that happens/has happened with a lot of non-American, non-English-speaking wrestlers that make the move to AEW and WWE, good of someone to vent about it. But LFI and Andrade look to be going on separate paths for the time being, which is a real shame given the faction warfare they could get into.

Good squash match win for Skye, there’s Collision’s one women’s match. Good promos to help hype Battle of the Belts 8, with Kris being someone who exercises when she’s anxious and Caster still not getting the hang of casual conversations. None of this changes who I feel wins on BOTB, X-JAS ain’t gonna beat Acclaimed & Billy. But good segue from X-JAS to Ruby’s promo where she wants a title, any title. Ruby VS Shida on Dynamite is going to be really good, but I would think Shida retains. And good promo from Darby to call Nick out and add hype to the “Tony Khan has a gift for Sting” segment.

Good squash win for Gunns over Outrunners, and great move having The Devil of AEW appear, but not MJF to further tease how this is gonna be someone else entirely. The technical glitching has people wondering if it’s Sami Callihan reviving his hacker gimmick from NXT and such, but who knows. Really good match from Miro and Action, and I like that CJ Perry wasn’t so much upset as she was that mixed of annoyed and amused you only get about the person you love being the person they are. This has to be where we get more matches like this, all of CJ’s potential clients getting walloped by Miro, only for Miro & CJ to realize they’re at their best together, because they are.

And honestly, for all the overbooking Heel heat BS everyone knew was coming in the Memphis Street Fight, all of that was great stuff. Jarrett of course wins with all that help, and now Lethal gets his title shot, but Eddie’s promo after was so, so good. Eddie knows how to properly blend shoot and kayfabe with how he brings up Lethal’s real name, and how he calls out how Triple J is such a hate-able faction and all that to add a ton of heat to this match. Now the only (small) downside is that this ROH World Championship match isn’t gonna happen on an ROH branded program because duh, none of this build has happened on ROH TV so it ain’t going there. Maybe it’ll be Full Gear since Tony Khan loves shoving as much as he possibly can onto AEW PPVs.

My Score: 8.8/10

Winner: “Powerhouse” Will Hobbs, by pinfall

All that damage done to Hobbs and he still took the win! Is there no stopping the Don Callis Family with the Powerhouse behind it?

 

The Blackpool Combat Club speaks.

Jon Moxley is with Claudio Castagnoli as he shares a story. “When Claudio first comes to America, he shows up at the gym to train with William Regal and Dave Taylor. When Dave pulls up, Claudio’s sitting on the front step, there’s no cars around. Dave says, ‘How’d you get here?’ Claudio says, ‘I walked.’ Dave says, ‘From the airport? 20+ miles?’ Claudio says, ‘Yeah.'” That was day one. You think 20 minutes is a lot to Claudio? It’s nothing, he’s a freak. Moxley is a freak in a different way, needing to get hit in the face a couple times just to wake up. And while Moxley’s not a sprinter, he can run all day and all night.

You will never win a war of attrition with the BCC. When it’s a game of who can endure, you have no chance. But the BCC don’t get paid by the hour and they don’t wanna wrestle like they do. So time limit draws for them are unsatisfactory. So congrats, FTR, you pissed them off! Good job. But if you wanna challenge them for Revolution, you wanna pay homage to tag team wrestling in one of the wrestling Meccas, Greensboro, North Carolina, they accept. The four of them will show the world that all that history is just that. This is 2024, this is AEW, the BCC are the elite of the elite, and this sport evolves.

Claudio, what’s Moxley thinking of right now? Well, tag team wrestling, Midnight Express, Rock ‘n’ Roll Express, Arn ‘n’ Tully, Crockett Promotions, its entire history. And about FTR, how they look to the past, how they wanna bring back the past. The BCC looks to the future. The BCC creates the style and the wrestling that they wanna see today. So FTR, if you wanna live in the past, fine. But if you wanna step into the future, that path is through them! And all you have to do is just be better than Moxley & Claudio.

Moxley also keeps thinking, that can’t be all that FTR had. Because it feels like they unloaded all their heavy artillery, every magazine, while the BCC barely pulled the trigger. If FTR want to be big names in Greensboro, then they’ll have to swim in deep, deep waters. Claudio tells FTR to bring the whole bag of tricks, because they’ll need it. The match is set, but just how far will both teams go to settle the score?

 

FTR VS Shane Taylor Promotions!

Dax Harwood & Cash Wheeler are ready for another fight with the BCC, but for right now, they’ve got the STP! Will the #TopGuys still be FTR? Or will Lee Moriarty & Shane Taylor himself prove they’re in that conversation now?

The teams sort out and Dax starts against #TAIGASTYLE. Lee and Dax tie up, Lee waistlocks and headlocks, then wrenches to hammerlock. Lee shoves Dax then claps at him, but Dax keeps it cool. Dax tags Cash, Cash runs up but Lee avoids him. The two feel things out, tie up and go around, then break the deadlock. They reset, tie up again, and Lee wrenches to spin Cash and wrangle him. Lee steps over, has La Magistrol, TWO! Lee pushes Cash around and then dances at him. Cash storms up but Lee backs off. Lee smirks at Cash then resets with him. They tie up, Lee headlocks, but Cash powers out.

Cash drops, drops, and hurdles to then ELBOW Lee down! Then arm-drag! Cash has the armlock and he slaps Lee around. Cash tags Dax, whips Lee, drop toehold and elbow drop! Fans rally up and Dax brings Lee up. Dax wrenches but Lee powers him to the corner! Tag to Shane but Dax gets away. Shane and Dax circle, talk some trash, and tie up. Dax headlocks, Shane powers up and out, but Dax RAMS him! Shane says not today! Dax runs again, RAMS again, but Shane stays up. Dax RAMS Shane again, and again, but Shane scoops! Dax slips free, waistlocks, but Shane bucks the O’Conner. Dax ducks ‘n’ dodges, but stays back to avoid hands.

The fans fire up as Dax and Shane reset, tie up, and Dax headlocks. Shane powers up and out, Dax SHOTGUNS him! Shane comes back but Dax avoids the senton! Dax wrenches, but Shane LARIATS! Shane drags Dax up, tags Lee, and STP mugs Dax. Lee throws knees, snapmares Dax and basement dropkicks! Lee drags Dax up, ROCKS hi, but Dax puts him in a corner to CHOP! And CHOP! Dax brings Lee around, wrenches, but Lee ROCKS Dax! And CHOPS him! Dax CHOPS again! And again! Lee swings, Dax ducks and picks Lee up, but Shane tags in before the atomic drop! Lee hobbles away, Dax ROCKS Shane!

Dax runs up to whip Lee but Lee reverses. Dax rebounds off buckles to CLOBBER Lee, but Shane CLOBBERS Dax! Cover, TWO! Dax survives, Shane talks trash on Cash, and Collision goes picture in picture.

Shane drags Dax up, puts him in a corner, then winds up to CHOP! Dax sputters and Shane talks more trash. Shane stands Dax up, winds up, and CHOPS again! Shane keeps Dax in the corner, whips him corner to corner hard, and Dax falls back! Shane talks more trash to Cash but the ref keeps Cash back. Shane tags Lee, STP mugs Dax and Lee puts Dax in a corner. Lee fires forearms, then climbs up to rain down fists! Lee gloats but Dax CHOPS from below! Lee stomps but Dax CHOPS! They clinch, go around, and end up on ropes. Shane tags in, he throws hands on Dax! Shane scoops and SLAMS Dax, then stares Cash down while Collision goes to break.

Collision returns and Shane has Dax in a bearhug! Dax endures the squeeze but the fans rally up. The ref checks Dax, the hand drops once. The hand drops twice! But then Dax comes back to life! And he BITES Shane’s forehead! The ref reprimands but Shane lets Dax go. Dax back suplexes, but falls over under Shane! Shane covers, TWO! Tag to Lee, and STP gets Dax up. Lee whips Dax but Dax turns the back drop into a cradle! TWO, and Dax CHOPS! Dax puts on a SLEEPER, but Lee RAMS him iont a corner! Tag to Shane, Dax fires hands on STP! Dax swings, Lee gets around to IRON OCTOPUS!

Cash UPPERCUTS Lee, CHOPS him, then brings Lee out to LARIAT! Shane storms up but Cash spins him and UPPERCUTS! Cash runs, ducks ‘n’ dodges and LARIATS Shane down! Fans fire up but Lee is back! Cash gets around, SLEEPER, into UPPERCUT!

Lee rebounds, into a NECKBREAKER! Cover, TWO!! Lee survives and bails out while the fans fire up. Cash drags Lee up from the apron, suplexes, but Shane trips Cash! Lee lands on Cash, TWO! Lee waistlocks, Cash switches, but Lee switches! Cash bucks the O’Conner but Lee distracts the ref so Shane can DECK Cash! Lee rolls Cash up, TWO!!! Cash survives but Lee brings him up. Lee whips Cash at the corner but Cash BLASTS Shane! Cash goes up and over Lee, then does it again! Tag to Dax, sunset flip leads to the pop-up, BULLDOG BOMB! Cover, FTR wins!

Winners: FTR, by pinfall

BCC said FTR live in the past, but they used an old school finisher to win! Cash gets the mic now as the fans chant for FTR, and Cash says, “So a few weeks ago, Jon Moxley said, ‘Step up, and get stepped on.'” The fans boo that, but Cash tells Moxley, FTR is like a couple roaches. It’ll take much more than getting stepped to kill them! The fans cheer that! So that said, if BCC has anything more to say, they know where FTR’s gonna be. Dax tells Moxley & Claudio that he heard everything they had to say. They talked about differing styles and different eras, how FTR are throwbacks and the past is what they care about.

“That’s not what this is about. Moxley, you’ve been here since almost the beginning. For almost five years, you’ve been the king of AEW. This is your castle! This is your house, Mox! And I see you, Mox. And I see Claudio, and I see Bryan. I see you walk around the back, and people cower and they fear and they drop their eyes because they’re afraid of you. I think the reason you’re pissed off is you found a couple guys who ain’t scared of you.” The fans cheer that, too! FTR ain’t scared. But if Moxley is the king and this is his castle, it’s been said that to be a king, you gotta kill a king. So Revolution, FTR comes for the king’s head. #TopGuysOut!

The fans fire up as Dax & Cash are ready to be more elite than the elite of the elite! Will either team be left standing after the Revolution?

 

Thunder Rosa VS Ladybird Monroe!

La Mera Mera is ranked #2 in the Women’s Division, and we know the AEW Women’s World Championship is spoken for in terms of a challenger. Will Rosa then look to solidify her spot in the TBS Championship chase?

The bell rings and Rosa circles with Monroe. They tie up, go around, and Rosa waistlocks to SLAM Monroe down. Rosa then facelocks, waistlocks, but Monroe switches. Rosa pries the hold to switch, hammerlock, and then chicken wing! Rosa wants the crossface, too, but Monroe wrenches out to hammerlock back. Monroe pulls hair, talks trash and CLUBS Rosa. Rosa gets mad now. Monroe whips, Rosa reverses and CHOPS! Monroe goes to a corner, and Rosa CHOPS her again! Rosa fires off forearms then bumps Monroe off buckles! Rosa says this is how you climb the ladder! Rosa CHOPS Monroe again!

Rosa winds up but Monroe ducks this chop to stomp Rosa in return. Monroe pie faces and CHOPS Rosa, then CHOPS! Monroe winds up, UPPERCUTS, then snapmares! Monroe cartwheels but Rosa avoids the boot! Rosa rolls Monroe then basement KNEES Monroe down! The fans fire up and Rosa runs side to side, DROPKICK against ropes! Monroe sputters but Rosa drags her up. Fireman’s carry and DEATH VALLEY DRIVER! Rosa roars, wants Monroe back up, and Monroe slowly rises. The fans rally as Rosa reels her in. Rosa puts on out, package and TIJUANA BOMB! Cover, Rosa wins!

Winner: Thunder Rosa, by pinfall

“You see this? I’m climbing the ladder, because as we know, Thunder Rosa knows how to work hard.” Rosa vows this is her time, will her comeback be unstoppable?

 

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

Renee Paquette is with The Galaxy’s Greatest, The Babe with the Power and #BigStoke, bringing up the “choice words” from Skye Blue & Julia Hart last night on Rampage. What is their reaction? Stokely wants to start by saying he doesn’t appreciate that hostility. What happened last week, he apologized for. Did he put it on social media at like 3AM and then delete it five minutes later? Absolutely! But the past is the past. Stat said it best, they worry about the future, and that includes those two- Willow says think before you speak, Stokely. “Ho…ly cow, you got something to say.”

And Kris points out Skye is always looking for a fight, so maybe, since they’re 1-1, they go 1v1 next week and Kris beats dat ass. This eclectic trio is ready to fight it out, but will they be able to tear down The House of Black?

 

Six Man Tag: Jay White, Colten Gunn & Billy Gunn VS The Iron Savages & Jacked Jameson!

As the Bang Bang Scissor Gang looks to dominate all of AEW & ROH, they are trying a team remix! Max Caster has a rap for the occasion! “Acclaimed & The Bang Bang, we the real savages. ‘Bout to bring the fight like me against management! These guys’re so mad, they prolly see red!” Oh no, Caster loses the flow! This is a travesty! Bowens takes over to say, “SPRIIINGFIELD, MIZZOU-REEE~! The Bang Bang Scissor Gang has arrived! Scissor Me, Daddy Ass!” And he does~! Will Billy, his son Colten, and the Switchblade make a killer trio? Or will they all end up sipping the Savage Sauce?

The trios sort out and White wants to start, but so does Billy. The fans sing “OH~ Scissor Me, Daddy~!” so White says okay, Billy can start. Billy stares down Beefcake Boulder and the two circle. They tie up, Billy headlocks but Boulder powers up and out! Billy RAMS Boulder, neither falls, and Boulder shows off #TiddyCity! Billy says okay, “SUCK IT!” and eye poke! Billy then runs Boulder over! The fans fire up, Billy runs and drops an elbow, but Boulder moves! Boulder then runs Billy over! Boulder swivels hips, tags Bulk Bronson, and they get Billy up. It’s time to visit the city! But Billy turns it around and shoves Bronson into Boulder!

Billy brings Bronson over, tags Colten, and they whip, body shot, BOOT and DROPKICK! The father-son combo has the fans fired up, and Colten brings Bronson up. Colten whips Bronson to a corner as White argues with Jacked Jameson. Colten goes to a corner, finger guns with his dad, but Jameson now argues with Billy. The ref is busy breaking those two up as Colten runs in, Boulder pulls Bronson to safety! Colten tumbles up and out and to the floor! Austin and Bowens check on Colten but Bronson SMACKS Colten off the apron! Bronson puts Colten in, covers, ONE!! Bronson drags Colten up and FLAPJACKS him off buckles!

Bronson goes up the ropes to HIP DROP Colten! Tag to Jameson, he HIP DROPS Colten! Boulder tags in, he stomps around and the fans fire up. Boulder brings Colten up, to suplex high and hard! Boulder then says bang bang to mock BBSG. Boulder shakes those hips, tags Jameson, and they double whip Colten, only for Colten to BLAST Bronson!

Backstage interview with Bryan Danielson.

Lexi Nair is with the American Dragon ahead of his main event match tonight against Jun Akiyama. Some consider this a dream match. Bryan says yes, but what Lexi didn’t say and should’ve said is that this the legendary Jun Akiyama. This is a man Bryan respects as one of the greatest wrestlers in history! Someone who is Eddie Kingston’s hero! And Eddie will be on commentary tonight, watching Bryan wrestle one of the greatest wrestlers, and beat him. Bryan vows to defeat the man that is Eddie’s hero. Bryan wants to make it clear, he respects Jun Akiyama and every single thing he has done. But do you know who Bryan does NOT respect? Eddie Kingston.

Bryan says Eddie just made this thing, that their match at Revolution is about a handshake. That if Eddie wins, Bryan has to shake Eddie’s hand and show him respect, and he thinks that’ll kill Bryan inside. And maybe it will. Because Bryan does NOT respect Eddie, and do you know why? Because if Eddie was asked to do a promo, do you know how he’d do it? Lexi’s interviewed him, right? And what would he say? “Oh, the boom! Oh the lights! Oh, you’ve got shoes on! Oh!” Then he’d say this, that and whatever, storm off and that’s it. He is NOT a professional, has NEVER been a professional!

Bryan has known Eddie for 20 YEARS, and Eddie is someone who had more potential than anybody Bryan has ever met, and he WASTED it! WASTED it until just this last year! But not only does Bryan not respect Eddie, Eddie’s waste of potential just pisses Bryan off. That is why Bryan will win against Eddie at Revolution for the Continental Triple Crown. The American Dragon wants to destroy the Mad King, but will he start with the Japanese legend?

The Bounty Hunter wants gold, but he’ll have to step into the shadows first. The House of Black has been nothing but brutal and sadistic, will Malakai add Keith to the body count?

The Dark Father returned to singles action, and he was victorious! But then the lights go out? Why? Malakai’s already here! But then the lights come on and Mark Briscoe is here with a kendo stick! Malakai wants Mark to show mercy, but here come Buddy & Brody! Mark dodges Buddy to SMACK Brody! And then a SMACK for Buddy! Mark ducks the heel kick to UPPERCUT! Mark gets the kendo stick back, takes aim again, but then thinks of something else. He has a STEEL SPIKE! The same kind Julia Hart stabbed Mark with just a couple weeks ago! Mark aims at Malakai, but Malakai dodges! The spike stabs the buckle pad!

BLACK MASS, and then DANTE’S INFERNO!! The House of Black took Mark’s revenge and turned it around on him. Will Mark learn that no matter what, The House Always Wins?

 

Serena Deeb VS Lady Frost!

The Professor of Professional Wrestling is looking for her path to a championship, and you do that by winning. Deeb had studied up for Kiera Hogan, but cards are subject to change. Will Deeb still pass the pop quiz? Or will she be iced out of the title chase already?

Eddie Kingston makes his way to the ring!

Springfield cheers on The Mad King as he joins commentary, just as Bryan said he would. But he isn’t putting on the headset just yet, he must want to wait on the legend. Will Eddie’s hero slay the American Dragon? Or will Bryan beat Blue Thunder like he did Blue Justice?

Wednesday Night Dynamite, Six Man Tag: FTR & Eddie VS Bryan, Claudio & Moxley! Will the Top Guys and Mad King finally beat some respect into the BCC?


My Thoughts:

A really good Collision here, lots of good story build for both Revolution and just in general. Great opening match with the No Disqualification match, but I’m surprised Hobbs won after all the stuff Sammy was doing. I mean, that’s good for Hobbs, he really should be winning things. Maybe it’s also to build Hobbs up so that when the Don Callis Family ends up fighting Ospreay & Fletcher, Ospreay & Fletcher are made even bigger deals when they beat Hobbs & Takeshita. Good win for Rosa and really good win for Deeb, both are going strong at perhaps just the right time. Deeb also had a really good promo, both should definitely be challenging for titles after Revolution going towards Double or Nothing.

Great trios match for Bang Bang Scissor Gang, and of course there was a moment of dysfunction where White gets the tag and not Billy. BBSG still wins, but I’m more surprised by Caster losing the flow on his rap. If that was legit, I feel bad for him, but maybe he wrote himself into a corner with “red” and the rhymes being bad (something something head, something something dead). I mean, he did just say he and management argue, maybe he held himself back because he didn’t want Tony Khan upset over blatantly naughty rhymes. And also, despite me wanting them to actually go for more gold, it feels like we’re just a moment away from BBSG breaking up and fighting for all the trios titles.

Great match from Bryan Keith and Malakai Black for the hell of it, and it gives Malakai a solid singles win. When Malakai hasn’t had one of those in awhile, that’s only because he hasn’t had a singles match in a long time. A little surprising Mark Briscoe didn’t get away with his ambush. He could’ve just bailed out when Buddy & Brody showed up but I guess that wouldn’t be in-character for Mark. Maybe Keith will be an ally for Mark against The House of Black since FTR is a bit busy right now. Speaking of which, great tag match of FTR VS STP and of course FTR wins. Good promo from BCC to set up the rematch at Revolution, I feel like they should make a point that the time limit isn’t 20 minutes but I can’t even remember if PPVs have time limits on matches.

And great tie-in of BCC with the main event tonight. Bryan VS Jun was a great match, Eddie was great on commentary because he knew Jun’s moveset and style so he was saying what was coming. Bryan won, of course, adding another Triple Crown Champion to the list since he’s coming after Eddie’s Triple Crown. I had a feeling Bryan was going to disrespect Jun, but it was only because Jun told him to respect Eddie. Great brawl to set up Eddie & FTR VS BCC for Dynamite, that’ll make for a strong go-home going towards Revolution.

My Score: 8.7/10

Trios Triple Threat: Private Party & Matt Sydal VS Top Flight & Action Andretti VS Bryan Keith, Komander & Penta El Zero Miedo!

With all the trios titles belonging to the Bang Bang Scissor Gang, many others are trying their hands at the trios game. Will Isiah Kassidy, Marq Quen and the Zen Assassin open their third eyes? Will Dante, Darius & The Sight to See be flying high? Or will the Bounty Hunter, the AAA Cruiserweight Champion and The Man with No Fear steal the spotlight from them all?

In this form of Triple Threat, only two trios are legal at one time, so Action steps up to stare down Sydal. The fans rally up as the two talk some smack, and they circle.

The fans rally for “CERO! MIEDO!” Penta tells Quen to listen, CERO! MIEDO! Queen says okay, but “What do we want? SHOTS!” Quen shoves Penta, so Penta takes off the glove.

She has things going on, too! That traitor isn’t getting under her skin even a little bit! Harley calms Saraya down, and they do breathing exercises. Why’s Harley flicking her tongue when she does that…? But Saraya wants to talk business. Y’know how her family is big famous wrestling royalty in the UK? Well, see, she has a special announcement. Her brother, “Zodiac” Zak Knight, has just become All Elite!!

Saraya has her brother walk into frame, and yeah, he’s scary, right? Zak could’ve been yours, Ruby! Saraya was gonna set Ruby up with him, “the most eligible bachelor in the Norwich area!” And Ruby messed that up just to be with that greasy, slimy, whatever Parker is! Harley says yeah! Just look at Zak! Isn’t he hot? He’s so hot! The whole Knight family is hot! Saraya is a bit taken aback by that, and she sprays water at Harley. Harley just embraces it so that doesn’t make for a good deterrent anymore… Saraya says it’s okay, Harley’s about to be fixed. But Saraya also promises, “Things are about to get really spicy around here.”

The Outcasts head out, and Zak’s scowl scares Renee a bit. Will Ruby & Parker regret making their romance public?

 

The Young Bucks VS Jonny Lyons & Cappuccino Jones!

Matthew & Nicholas Jackson used, or rather abused, their power as Executive Vice Presidents of AEW to have an AEW World Tag Team Championship match at Revolution. However, they are also very upset at the continued disrespect. Will that really stop after they take their frustrations out on these young indie guys?

The teams sort out and Nick starts against Lyons. Nick doesn’t even bother taking off his trilby (or is it a fedora?) as he circles with Lyons. Nick calls for a knuckle lock but then kicks low and CLUBS away! The fans boo but Nick soaks it up. Nick whips Lyons, Lyons reverses but Matt tags in. Nick hurdles then whips Lyons, Lyons ducks Nick but Matt CLOBBERS him! Matt takes off his suit jacket to then drags Lyons up. Matt TOSSES Lyons to the corner, Lyons tags in Cappuccino! The fans fire up for Cappuccino as he circles with Matt. Matt mockingly applauds, also calls for a knuckle lock, but also kicks low!

Matt CLUBS away on Cappuccino, just like Nick, but then Matt cools off. Matt brings Cappuccino up to throw hands, whips him to ropes, but fakes the superkick to DDT instead! Fans boo but Matt drags Cappuccino up. Matt whips Cappuccino to the corner, he and Nick coordinate to LARIAT GAMANGIRI COMBO! Tag to Nick, he BLASTS Lyons, and then Matt whips Nick in so he can go up and over and PENALTY KICK Lyons! Matt stomps Cappuccino, stands him up, then HOTSHOTS him into Nick’s DISCUS LARIAT! Tag back to Matt and he drags Cappuccino up. The fans rally as hard as they can, but Cappuccino gets the MELTZER DRIVER!! Cover, The Bucks win!

Winners: The Young Bucks, by pinfall

Well, turns out they call that the “Tony Khan Driver” now, seems they don’t care to be associated with the Wrestling Observer anymore. But then they feel disrespected when the ref hesitates to raise their hands? Nick gets the mic to tell Paul Turner that when he raises their hand, what name did he use? Did he really just call him “Nick?” That is disrespectful! Next time, it’s a fine! And Schiavone, please, join them in the ring. Fans boo and Schiavone isn’t sure what to do. But they are EVPs, he doesn’t really have a choice… Schiavone joins the Bucks, and Nick promises they won’t harm him.

Last week, Schiavone was in the ring with them and Nick swears, he tripped on his own shoe, knocked into Schiavone and that is why Schiavone fell over. Nick wants to make it clear, and he apologizes for that. Matt says to show how sorry they are, and how much they love him, they got him a $25 Amazon gift card. They are sorry, Schiavone, but that isn’t the only thing they’re sorry about. See, they’re also sorry that, uh… they can’t get the bloodstains left by Darby Allin & Sting out of their $5,000 suits. Schiavone says yes, that is a problem… Will they rescind the $1,000 fine on them by any chance?

Sorry, no, they can’t do that. But there are a couple things that they won’t be sorry about. The first thing is beating the hell out of Darby for all the trash he talked about them publicly. The second thing, and this is one Schiavone will really like, is them taking Sting and pinning him to the mat, saying goodbye to one of the most legendary careers in all of pro-wrestling! Fans boo but Matt continues to tell “Stinger,” call them Father Time. Because just like time, the Bucks are undefeated. And just like time, the Bucks are coming for Sting! “Now everybody, let’s have a great show! There’s a great line-up on the way!

“Tony’s over there at the desk, he’s one of the best play by play guys in the business! C’mon, everybody! AEW chant on three? One, two, three! A E DUB! A E DUB! Alright, let’s go~!” Matt fist bumps Schiavone, then leaves with Nick. The farce continues, but will there be nothing even Darby & Sting can do about it? Or will the Icon still find a way to retire on top?

 

Tony Schiavone is back in the ring.

Rampage returns and he welcomes a young man who has had a busy year. He’s a brand new father but fighting the Don Callis Family, it’s Sammy Guevara! Tulsa cheers as The Spanish God heads to the ring, back on his feet after the ambush by Will Hobbs. Schiavone shakes hands with Sammy, and Schiavone congratulates Sammy on last week’s win against Jeff Hardy. But now, to the comments Callis had for Sammy just last Wednesday Night Dynamite. The insults he hurled at Sammy, Callis clearly has it out for him.

Sammy says it is a mix of emotions. Last week, he got in the ring with a childhood hero in Jeff Hardy. But on the other hand, he’s pissed off because Hobbs put him through a table! Sammy tells Hobbs that Sammy always knew Hobbs had endless potential, and superstardom written all over him. But he can do that all on his own! Hobbs doesn’t need Callis sucking the life out of Hobbs’ career! Hobbs is a star all on his own, but it’s too late now for him to figure that out because he’s pissed Sammy off. So enough talk! Get your ass out here so they can fight! The Don Callis Family music plays, but it’s only Callis walking out here.

Callis has a mic to taunt Sammy, “Look, everybody! It’s Mr. Mom! You’re back at work after nursing the child. I mean, the only thing you’ve done of any note in the last six months is reproduce, and you shouldn’t be proud of that. Dogs do it. Even these people can do it!” Fans boo but Callis says Sammy used to be a great athlete. He used to be a guy Callis wanted in the Family. But now, Sammy has become like so many others: a weak, pathetic little cuck! Sammy doesn’t get what Callis is doing repeating himself, but then HOBBS gets in from the crowd side! Sammy dodges, SUPERKICKS, and Hobbs bails out!

Sammy eggs Hobbs on, then builds speed, to FLY! Direct hit and down goes Hobbs! Sammy says bang bang, and he gets a chair! Sammy winds up to SMACK Hobbs on the back! Hobbs hobbles but gets in the ring. Sammy pursues, aims again, and he JAMS Hobbs low! Then SMACKS him on the back! Sammy throws off the jacket, waits on Hobbs to turn around, but Hobbs fights off the torture rack to LARIAT Sammy inside out!! Callis smiles as he tells Hobbs to end this! SPINEBUSTER! And then another SPINEBUSTER! Hobbs is gonna do Sammy like he did Jericho! Hobbs hauls Sammy up, scoops and WORLD’S STRONGEST SLAM!!

Hobbs stands over Sammy and Callis applauds. The Powerhouse has all but pulverized Sammy, and Callis even gets his shots in! Will the Don Callis Family make sure there’s nothing left of Sammy to go home to his wife and daughter by the end of this?

 

Skye Blue speaks.

“I had that match. I had it won, if it wasn’t for that bald headed, sad, poor excuse of a man, I would’ve had it and I deserved it. I had that win and I deserved it, on my own.” Julia Hart calms her down and says it’s okay. They will have their comeuppance. And while seeking their revenge, they will dig three graves: one for Willow, for Kris, and for Stokely. But who does Skye want first? Whoever will step up. Whoever has the balls enough to step up and fight her! Will the Chicago Skye continue to darken until she blots out the light?

 

Mariah May VS Anna Jay!

Toni Storm’s superfan still wants to prove herself to her hero, but that really depends on if Storm is even watching this. Will Mariah finally have Storm’s approval? Or will the Queenslayer still be the Star of the Show?

The bell rings and the two circle. The fans rally, the two tie up, and they go along the ropes. They end up in a corner, get out of a corner, and Mariah pulls hair. The ref counts, Mariah lets off and shoves Anna, but Anna doesn’t budge! Anna smirks as she and Mariah rest and tie up. Anna waistlocks, shoves, but Mariah slides to sweep the legs! Mariah runs but Anna dodges the dropkick! Anna runs to BLOCKBUSTER! Anna then ROCKS Mariah, whips her, but Mariah reverses to ROCK Anna! Mariah bumps Anna off buckles, then puts some stank on the DOUBLE CHOP! Mariah brings Anna around to bump off buckles, and CHOP again!

Mariah eggs Anna on so Anna CHOPS! Mariah CHOPS! Mariah bumps Anna off buckles, then digs her boot in as Rampage goes picture in picture!

The ref counts, Mariah lets off at 4, and she brings Anna into ropes to hook her up. The ref counts as Mariah chinlocks Anna against ropes, but she lets off at 4. Mariah kisses Anna on the cheek, then runs to DROPKICK Anna in the back! Anna falls out of the ropes and Mariah soaks up the heat. Mariah stands Anna up, runs, and SHOTGUNS her down! Anna flounders out of the ring and Mariah takes a bow. Mariah then goes out to stalk Anna, and she brings Anna around the way. Mariah puts Anna against barriers to CHOP her! And SPANK her! Mariah laughs while Anna hobbles away. Mariah pursues to then CHOP again!

Anna is stinging while Mariah dusts herself off. Mariah hears the count but she whips Anna into the barriers first! Mariah then leaves Anna behind and “apologizes” to the ref. Mariah goes back out after Anna, soaks up the heat, and vogues for the camera. But Anna throws body shots and CHOPS! And CHOPS! Mariah CHOPS back! Mariah pushes Anna into the ring, takes her time posing before going back in, and Rampage goes to break.

Rampage returns as Anna whips Mariah to a corner. Mariah slips out to the apron, avoids Anna’s haymaker, and ROUNDHOUSES in return! Anna staggers, Mariah shouts and climbs up, but Anna ROCKS her! Anna then gets space, runs up, and HEEL KICKS! Anna then wrenches the arms, ICONOCLASM! Cover, TWO! Anna grows frustrated but she drags Mariah up and hooks the arms. Mariah blocks the Gory Especial to backslide hard, TWO! Anna sits up, into a KNEE THRUST! Mariah says it’s time to end this, and she hauls Anna back up. Fireman’s carry, but Anna slips free! QUEENSLAYER!!

Anna hops on as a backpack, but Mariah RAMS her into buckles! Mariah is free, and she puts Anna up top. Mariah DOUBLE CHOPS, then gets some space. Mariah runs up to STRATUSPHERE! Anna flounders away and Mariah shouts out Storm! Mariah runs up, but the hip attack misses! Anna runs up to kick, dragon sleeper, and BACKSTABBER! Cover, TWO?!? Mariah survives and Anna grows frustrated! The fans rally as Anna sits Mariah up, into the QUEEN- NO, Mariah blocks the sleeper! Anna fights through to have the QUEENSLAYER! Mariah flails, reaches out, but she BITES Anna’s arm!!

The ref reprimands but Mariah is free all the same! Fireman’s carry, MAYDAY DRIVER!! Cover, Mariah wins!

Winner: Mariah May, by pinfall

One thing is for sure, Mariah is just as looney as her role model! Will she follow in Storm’s footsteps to become a champion in AEW?

 

Backstage interview with Ruby Soho & Angelo Parker.

Renee is with the lovey-dovey couple, how’d the date go? Ruby says she felt it went really well. Parker is relieved, he didn’t wanna say it first and be wrong. It was incredible, everything he hoped it’d be, he had a great time. Renee points out that in the opposite direction, Saraya is becoming unraveled. If they didn’t hear her comments earlier, she had some rather choice words. And apparently, she was going to hook Ruby up with her brother? Ruby says that’s weird and Renee agrees. Plus, Zak is more like a poor man’s Tom Hardy, big pass. Parker isn’t sure being Norwich’s Most Eligible Bachelor is a bad of honor, either. And honestly, “wrestling royalty?” That’s a stretch.

Ruby tells Saraya that she said she doesn’t care, that Ruby doesn’t get under her skin, but here’s the reality: for the last year, Saraya told Ruby that Ruby needed Saraya, when it was really the other way around. Saraya is sad and unhappy without Ruby. And say all you want about Ruby, but talk bad on Parker and that’s when they have problems. Ruby said she needed space, and in that space, she found something real. And Saraya may be sick of hearing it, of seeing it, but hey, why not invite everyone along? Bring the cameras, bring the crew, and they’ll shove this right down Saraya’s throat!

Parker’s pretty fired up. He says Ruby’s hot when she’s mad. Ruby thanks him for the compliment, and the two head out to get some drinks. Will they make Saraya so sick of love she’ll never dare speak their names again?

 

Roderick Strong w/ The Undisputed Kingdom VS Jake Hager w/ Hornsby!

The Undisputed Kingdom were bullying Orange Cassidy, and apparently the Big Hurt didn’t like seeing that. Will Oklahoma’s own break the Savior of the Backbreaker? Or will Roddy be too strong even for the All-American Sooner?

The bell rings and the fans rally for Hager and Hornsby. Roddy and Hager circle, tie up, and Hager powers Roddy to a corner. Roddy slips free, shoves Hager, and fans boo. The two reset, they circle again, and Roddy gets around to waistlock. Roddy then turns Hager around to CHOP, but Hager doesn’t budge! Fans fire up and Roddy is a bit scared, so Roddy bails out. The Kingdom pep talk Roddy while the ring count climbs. Roddy hurries in, dodges Hager, then things speed up. Roddy leaps but Hager catches him! Hager puts Roddy in a corner, runs up but into a BOOT! Roddy CHOPS, but Hager catches it?!

Fans fire up as Hager TOSSES Roddy, then CHOPS him! And CHOPS him again! Hager whips corner to corner hard, runs up, but Rodd bails out again! Hager snarls, goes out after Roddy, and stalks him around the way. Matt Menard’s on commentary, he says watch out for “these bozos,” Taven & Bennett. Hager stares them down as he walks past, then fires off on Roddy! Roddy tumbles, Hager puts him in the ring, but Roddy KICKS Hager in the ropes! Roddy CLUBS away on Hager, then tells Tulsa to shut up! Roddy runs, but into a BOOT! Hager storms up, puts Roddy in a corner, and then TOSSES him across the ring!

The fans fire up as Hager LARIATS Roddy down! Cover, TWO! Roddy stays in this but Hager digs his knees into Roddy! Roddy flails and reaches out but Hager traps the arms. The ref counts as that knee gets a bit high on the chest and into the neck area. Hager lets off, but he puts Roddy in a corner to fire off body shots! Roddy staggers away as Rampage goes picture in picture.

Hornsby cheers Hager on as he clotheslines Roddy in the corner! Hager ROCKS Roddy while talking trash to The Kingdom, then he hauls Roddy up top. Hager climbs, brings Roddy up, but Roddy clubs at Hager’s leg. Roddy throws body shots, slips underneath, and then kicks the legs out! Hager ends up stuck in the ropes, and Roddy runs to STRONG KNEE him in the back! Hager falls and Roddy stomps a mudhole in! The ref counts, Roddy lets off to flex, but only The Kingdom cheers him on. Roddy stands on Hager in the corner, lets off as the ref counts, but then he springboard stomps Hager down!

Roddy gets the legs and has Hager in ropes, for the ROPE GUILLOTINE! Hager sputters, Roddy covers, TWO! Roddy keeps Hager down by dropping knees, then he digs a knee into Hager’s back. Roddy has the chinlock but Hager endures and fights up. The fans rally, Hager throws body shots, and then Hager runs, but into a DROPKICK! Roddy hurries to cover, TWO! Roddy drags Hager from ropes, stomps him, then paces around while The Kingdom talks trash on Hager. Roddy glares at Hornsby but Hornsby dares him to do something! Roddy goes back to Hager to rain down fists! Roddy then lets off to put Hager in a corner.

Taven seems to be talking trash on Hornsby, probably calling him a Melvin like does everyone. Roddy stands Hager up to CHOP! And CHOP! And then he scoops to BACKBREAKER! Cover, TWO! Roddy keeps Hager down with another chinlock, again digging in a knee. Hager endures, fights up, and Rampage returns to single picture. Hager throws body shots and is free, but Roddy CLUBS, KNEES and runs, but into a lift! Roddy sunset flips, Hager stays up and he drags Roddy up to TOSS to a corner! Roddy BOOTS, ENZIGIRIS and then OLYMPIC SLAMS! Cover, TWO! Roddy grows frustrated as Hager stays in this.

Hornsby smacks the steel steps to rally the fans, and now Bennett glares at him. And then Taven comes in from the other side, Hornsby realizes he’s in a 2v1 situation here. Hornsby wants them to calm down, but then he pulls out a SUPER CONFETTI POPPER! It goes off and Hornsby says take that! The Kingdom still storms up on him, but here comes Orange Cassidy! The AEW International Champion is returning the favor to Hager by helping out his buddy. The Kingdom says fine, bring it then! Cassidy says hold on, he has THE HAT! He throws the purple bucket hat into Hager, and Hager loves that hat!

Cassidy then dodges Taven, shoves him into Bennett, and down they go! Cassidy rains down fists, and Hager powers up with the hat!! Roddy runs up but Hager LARIATS! And LARIATS! And OVERHEAD BELLY2BELLY SUPLEXES! The fans are thunderous as Hager says, “I like this hat!!” Then Hager runs corner to corner, goes up and up, and hits the HAGER BOMB! Cover, TWO!! Roddy survives but Hager snarls! But Taven sends Cassidy into railing! The 2v1 has gotten the better of Cassidy, and Roddy JAWBREAKERS Hager! Hager staggers, Roddy storms up, OLYMP- NO, Hager slips free to GUT RWENCH BOMB!! Cover, TWO!!

Roddy survives, but Hager has the ANKLE LOCK!! Roddy flails, rolls over, and he kicks from below! Hager still holds on, ANKLE LOCK! Roddy flails, reaches out, but Taven throws Cassidy into the ring! The ref is distracted by that, Taven & Bennett get on the apron but Hager CLOBBERS them both! Roddy STRONG KNEES!! Hager falls, Roddy covers, Roddy wins!

Winner: Roderick Strong, by pinfall

Despite having back-up and the power-up, Hager still couldn’t beat the numbers game! Roddy is rolling towards Revolution, will he be taking the International title away from Cassidy?


My Thoughts:

A very good Rampage that was again booked to have story. The Bucks of course won their match, but they did what I was hoping they’d do in changing up their style. They purposefully didn’t use superkicks, and then they are apparently changing up the names of their finishers as if to say Heel Bucks don’t care about their YouTube show or Dave Meltzer. Their post match promo was good, too, but it didn’t really add too much more to the heat they’ve already got. And pretty good promos out of this Ruby VS Saraya story. I thought Ruby VS Saraya was just going to be the thing, but now it feels like they might give us a Mixed Tag of Ruby & Parker VS Saraya & Zak.

Really good Trios Triple Threat to open, and I love that it was Keith, Komander & Penta winning rather than taking a loss to the established-ish trios. The feud of Private Party and Top Flight really needs to be settled by just those teams anyway. Pretty good promo from Sammy Guevara to call out the Don Callis Family, but of course it turned into Hobbs beating Sammy up. Good promo from Skye and Julia, I really thought AEW would’ve figured out a contender to the TBS Championship by now, but maybe that’ll happen very quickly in the next week. Really good match from Mariah May and Anna Jay, and a really good win for Mariah. But you can bet Storm didn’t pay attention to this at all, just like the other times.

And very good main event from Hager VS Roddy, with The Kingdom of course overbooking this. The bit with Hornsby was fun, and Cassidy showing up was also a logical move. I like that Hager’s hat is now the same as Cassidy putting hands in his pockets, but of course Hager lost out. Roddy needs momentum going into the title match so he had to win this one, and he probably just waits it out while Cassidy gets worn down. But at this point, it’ll probably still take a lot of cheating for Roddy to win the International title and bring it into The Undisputed Kingdom.

My Score: 8.7/10
