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.

Winners: Ricky Starks & “Big Bill” Morrissey, by pinfall (still AEW World Tag Team Champions)

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

The House of Black speaks.

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

 

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

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

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

 

ROH World Championship #1 Contender’s Match: Roderick Strong w/ The Kingdom VS Dalton Castle w/ The Outrunners!

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

The fans fire up and Castle puts Roddy in the ring. Castle argues with Taven, old rivalry there too. The Outrunners get in The Kingdom’s faces, and they flex on ’em! But then Roddy WRECKS Castle with a dropkick! Roddy hauls Castle up to BARRIER BACK SUPLEX!

The Kingdom gloats while the fans boo, and Roddy shouts “Who’s the man now?!” while Collision goes picture in picture.

Roddy SLAPS Castle with the foam guard, then puts him in the ring. The ref has The Kingdom and Outrunners stand down. Roddy stomps Castle, drags him up, and puts him in a corner.

Castle endures, fights up as the fans rally, and he fires body shots. Castle is free, but Roddy DROPKICKS him down! Cover, TWO! Roddy clamps onto Castle with another chinlock, but Castle endures. Roddy shifts it into a CAMEL CLUTCH!

Collision returns and Roddy pushes Castle to a cover, TWO! Castle is still in this but Roddy tells him to stay down. Roddy tells fans to shut up, and he kicks Castle around. Castle goes to ropes, Roddy drags him up, and then CHOPS! Castle staggers, Roddy scuffs him, and then Roddy storms up. Castle blocks a kick to reel Roddy in for a BIG back suplex! The fans fire up as Castle roars! Castle rises, Roddy runs up, but Castle blocks a punch to DECK him! And DECK him again! And again! Roddy goes to a corner, Castle runs in to JUMP KNEE! And LARIAT!

Winner: Roderick Strong, by pinfall (NEW #1 Contender tot he ROH World Championship)

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

Mark Briscoe speaks.

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

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

 

Program loading.

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

 

Stokely Hathaway & Kris Statlander talk backstage.

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

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

 

Nyla Rose VS Ava Lawless!

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

The bell rings and the fans rally for Ava. The two tie up, Nyla waistlocks but Ava fires elbows. Ava is free, she fires more shots, then winds up to ROCK Nyla!

Top Flight w/ Action Andretti VS Anthony Ogogo & Lee Moriarty w/ Shane Taylor!

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

Backstage interview with Deonna Purrazzo.

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

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

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

 

Backstage interview with Nyla Rose.

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

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

 

Skye Blue VS Harley Cameron w/ Saraya!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Winner: Skye Blue, by submission

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

 

Skye Blue speaks.

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

 

Orange Cassidy & Kyle O’Reilly VS The Kingdom!

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

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

Taven stops that, suplexes, but gets STUN DOG MILLIONAIRE! Cassidy holds Taven in place so Kyle can AX and SMASH! Bennett stands, blocks a kick, but Kyle rolls to pick the ANKLE LOCK! Bennett endures, reaches out, and he rolls! Taven GAMANGIRIS Kyle, but Cassidy DECKS Taven! Cassidy dodges Bennett, SHOVES him out, then Cassidy DIVES! Direct hit and Bennett hits railing!

Bennett endures, calls Taven, and they PROTON PACK Kyle down! Cover, Cassidy breaks it! The fans cheer, Taven storms up, and Roddy cheers his team from commentary. Cassidy TOSSES Taven first, though! Then he dodges Bennett to SHOTGUN! But JUST THE TIP hits Cassidy! Kyle storms up, Taven ROCKS him! Taven again apologizes but what’s done is done. Taven runs, into a KNEE! Kyle snapmares Taven, Bennett ROCKS him!

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

Cassidy crawls on the outside, Taven bails out, leaving Kyle and Bennett in the ring. Kyle and Bennett crawl, hot tags to Taven and Cassidy! Cassidy and Taven fire off fast hands! Taven knees low, whips Cassidy, but Cassidy tumbles up and out to then bump Taven off buckles. Cassidy dribbles Taven off the buckles again and again, pauses, then again!

Cassidy sputters, Bennett ROCKS him! And CHOPS him! Cassidy falls, Bennett soaks up the heat.

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

The fans fire up but Taven drags Cassidy over. Tag to Bennett, they stomp Cassidy, then Bennett CHOPS Cassidy. Cover, TWO!

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

Winners: The Kingdom, by pinfall

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

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


My Thoughts:

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

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

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

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

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

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

My Score: 8.7/10

Roderick Strong w/ The Kingdom VS Ben Bishop!

The Savior of the Backbreaker is set for an ROH World Championship #1 contender’s match tomorrow night on Collision against Dalton Castle. But in an occasion of turnabout is fair play, The Conglomeration is watching him from commentary! Will the presence of Kyle O’Reilly, Orange Cassidy & Mark Briscoe make Roddy better or worse than usual?

The bell rings and Kyle says that while he loves and appreciates Roddy, Taven & Bennett, they’re being more like the Undisputed Cling-dom! Meanwhile, big Ben Bishop stalks some smack on Roddy, and then pretends he can’t see him. Roddy says okay, be that way.

The Conglomeration is in agreement, that was impressive work by Roddy, because Roddy is indeed that good. But Cassidy says it is time to go stare down with them. The Conglomeration stand on stage to stare down The Kingdom, but Roddy needs to focus on tomorrow night. Will Roddy punch his golden ticket to an ROH World Championship match? Or will it be The Peacock that means the Sussex County Chicken in Arlington, Texas?

 

Deonna Purrazzo speaks.

The Virtuosa is served a glass of wine, and says we’ve never been formally introduced. We’ve all seen what she can do in the ring, but does anyone know what it means to be THE Virtuosa. “Wrestling isn’t just a sport or an art form, it’s both. And more set to a quickening pace than a staccato beat of bodies slamming, bones cracking, tendons tearing! All building towards a beautiful and violent crescendo.” Deonna likes what AEW has forced her to become. “Because here, actions have consequences.” And Deonna vows to burn the empire to the ground, to remake it in her own image. This is the Age of the Virtuosa.

AEW shares footage from after Dynamite.

Renee Paquette caught up with Chris Jericho, “Big Bill” Morrissey & Bryan Keith, and asks what the hell. Yes, she’s seen The Learning Tree do “a ton of horrible other things” throughout his career, but tonight with Samoa Joe crossed a line. What was he thinking? Jericho smiles, the leather belt gifted to him by Martha Hart still wrapped around his hand. He waves to the camera and says, “Hi, guys. And Renee, I don’t know why you’re so surprised. This is exactly what I’ve been saying for a long, long time. If you’ve listen to The Learning Tree, good things happen. Look at The Redwood and Bad Apple.

“But if you don’t listen to The Learning Tree, bad things happen. Shibata had a chance, now his arm is hurt. Hook had a chance, we had to burn his face off with a fireball. And Samoa Joke, for years, I’ve been telling you to listen to The Learning Tree, you didn’t, we ran you through a wall, and now you’re in the hospital.” Bill is stifling a laugh this entire time. Jericho says if Joe needs something to help with his inflamed muscles he might have, try ginger and black pepper. It’s really good for you. See, Renee? Lots of lessons to be learned. And even more will be learned on Dynamite 250, with a special edition of TV Time with Chris Jericho. Thanks, guys~…!

Jericho leaves, and Bill says one of the biggest lessons that Jericho has taught them is that the more TV Time, the better. And they want as much TV Time as possible! Because The Learning Tree, The Bad Apple and The Redwood are always maximizing their minutes. She should try it some time. Keith says if you don’t respect Chris Jericho, they will MAKE you respect Chris Jericho. Will everyone in AEW learn the hard way that Jericho isn’t kidding around?

Winners: Shane Taylor Promotions, by pinfall

That could’ve been a win by knockout with that killer haymaker! But will Shane Taylor Promotions continue to rampage until they prove they prove they’re the elite of All Elite Wrestling?


My Thoughts:

A really good Rampage, and while they shoved five matches onto this card again, they at least did their best to put story behind most of these. Roderick Strong was of course beating Ben Bishop, but they gave us a storyline plug by having The Conglomeration on commentary. And while Thunder Rosa was of course beating Rachael Ellering, they gave us story build with Deonna attacking them both. I feel like this will give us Deonna VS Ellering next, to stretch things out so that the true blowoff of Deonna VS Rosa isn’t until All In, probably in the All In Zero Hour. For that matter, that’s probably where Conglomeration VS Undisputed Kingdom 3v3 happens, too.

I’m a bit torn on the promo from Learning Tree Jericho and crew. The positive is that it was really good. I said for Dynamite that I like how the payoff is Jericho’s gone from condescending to sinister, and even Big Bill is getting into this crazy persona. The negative for me is that they kinda shoved this in here. I know we DO need to hear Jericho’s explanation, but if it was “after Dynamite,” then find a way to make it part of Dynamite. Or just leave it for Saturday Night Collision so that you aren’t already stuffing a one hour program full to the brim.

Great opening tag from House of Black VS Premier Athletes with Sterling & Woods of course getting involved, but great win for Malakai & Brody in that 4v2 situation. Still banking on them screwing over The Patriarchy during a Unified World Trios Championship match. The Six Man Tag was really good but not sure it was main event material compared to the Fatal 4 Way. Good stuff for the Six Man Tag, everyone got their shine, but that Fatal 4 Way was just incredible. Great win for Fenix to stay hot while all the titles have stories going into All In, but he could get a shot at like, Okada’s Continental Championship to give us a dream match moment before the PPV.

My Score: 8.8/10
