Jay White w/ Bullet Club Gold VS AR Fox!

The Switchblade wears the AEW World Championship but he isn’t actually the AEW World Champion. Though if you’d ask him, he’d say he IS the real world champion. Will White be rolling into Full Gear? Or will he end up owing a ticket to the Whole Fox’n Show?

The bell rings and the fans taunt the “ASS~ BOYS!” White and Fox circle, tie up, and go around. Fox puts White in a corner but White turns it around. The ref counts, White RAMS into Fox then brings Fox to a headlock and takeover. Fox keeps his shoulders up, stands up, but White hits another takeover. Fox fights up again, throws body shots, and Fox powers out, only for White to run him over! White stomps Fox, ROCKS him with a forearm, and stomps him in a corner. The Bang Bang Gang cheers, and then White CHOPS! And CHOPS! And- NO, Fox ducks to CHOP, CHOP and CHOP! White knees low to CHOP again!

White stomps Fox, the ref counts, and White lets off. White stands Fox up to CHOP him again! Fans “WOO~” and White whips corner to corner. Fox goes up but White stops him from getting over, only for Fox to then MULE KICK and ROLLING STUNNER! White falls, fans fire up, and Fox goes again. White stops the stunner, but Fox goes Matrix to PELE! White falls out of the ring and fans fire up! Fox aims, White avoids the plancha but Fox BOOTS White! Then he goes up the corner, MOONSAULT! Down goes White and the Mohegan Sun Arena fires up! Fox puts White in the ring while the BCG complain.

Fox trips White with leg scissors, then he slingshots and rolls White into a suplex! White slips free, kicks a leg, and reels Fox in, CORNER HALF HATCH! Austin talks trash on Fox, fans boo him and the rest of the gang, but White drags Fox up to wrench and CHOP! White eggs Fox on, Fox snarls and CHOPS! White CHOPS again! White whips, Fox blocks the hip toss, but White avoids the lariat to CHOP! White whips again, hip tosses Fox down, then CHOPS him down! Cover, ONE!! Fox is tough but White slaps him around. Fox gets mad and shoves White. White brushes that off, to CHOP! Fox fires forearms, runs, but into an ELBOW!

Fans boo as White watches Fox go to a corner. White runs up to clothesline, shove, and DDT! White gets Fox off the ropes to cover, TWO?!? Fox survives and White is surprised. White shoves Fox out of the ring and distracts the ref, and the BCG attack Fox! Fans boo while Collision goes picture in picture!

The BCG get away before they’re caught, and White goes out to whip Fox hard into railing! White says guns up and Austin marches around with Cardblade. White stands Fox up, puts him in the ring, and White poses with Cardblade before he steps in. White drags Fox up, and snap suplexes! Cover, TWO! White  snarls, pushes Fox down and has a chinlock, but Fox gets the ROPEBREAK! White lets go to stomp Fox down! White taunts Fox, but Fox throws body shots! White eggs Fox on, and Fox kicks, only for White to DRAGON SCREW! White air guitars to call out Tanahashi, before he ties Fox’s legs up in the INDIAN DEATHLOCK!

White then swaggers before he leans back, MUTA LOCK! Fox endures, fights his way around, reaches out, and has the ROPEBREAK! The ref counts, White lets go at 4, and Fox sputters as he sits up. White brings Fox up, Fox throws body shots, but White CLUBS him, snapmares, and chinlocks again. Fox endures, fights around, and stands up to throw body shots! White CLUBS Fox, Fox ROCKS White, but White ROCKS Fox! They go back and forth with forearms, Collision returns to single picture, and White ROCKS Fox to a corner.

The “real world champion” doesn’t have to worry about owing Fox anything, but wait! MJF snatches Triple B from where it sits on the desk! Bullet Club Gold swarms, White grabs hold of the belt and it’s a tug-o-war! But MJF seeing White’s got his boys with him, discretion is the better part of valor and MJF gets outta there. MJF still has time before Dynamite’s 8 Man Tag challenge, but will he find three men willing to help him? Or rather, will MJF accept the help of three men who already are willing? Speaking of…

 

The Acclaimed & Billy Gunn speak.

Daddy Ass says in case you’ve been living under a rock, these three have been AEW World Trios Champions for SIXTY-TWO DAYS! That means next week, live on Collision, it is a very special day for them! It will mark sixty-nine days as- Wait! Caster has a text! He doesn’t wanna cut us off but great news. MJF just texted and says he’ll be front row for National 69 Day! NO, Max! Dammit, this is some kinda catfish! This guy only has 200 followers! What?! But Caster’s already sent pictures! Of what?! Of himself! MAX!? Stop! Go, get back in the corner. But point is, we’ll celebrate 69 in Wichita, because EVERYONE loves The Acclaimed! And block whoever that is, Max.

 

Brandon & Brent Tate w/ Dalton Castle VS The Gunns w/ Bullet Club Gold!

The Peacock accompanies his Boys out here to take on the Ass Boys, Austin & Colten! But will even twins fail to beat the (self-proclaimed) best brother team in the world today?

The teams sort out, Austin starts against Brent, and the fans taunt the “ASS~ BOYS~!” The two tie up, Austin headlocks, but Brent powers up and out. Austin runs Brent out, BCG cheer but fans boo. Things speed up, Brent slides to trip Austin up and he ENZIGURIS! Fans fire up as Brent tags Brandon and they both run up to double whip Austin corner to corner. Brandon whips Brent so Brent can whip Brandon, and Brandon back elbows Austin! Brandon fires up and the fans are with him. Brandon whips corner to corner but Austin comes back to CLOBBER Brandon! “Who’s the Ass Boy now?!” “YOU~!”

Winners: The Gunns, by pinfall

Austin & Colten are rolling towards the ROH World Tag Team Championship match with MJF, will they add to the woes of the Devil?

 

Danhausen’s jingle is back!

And our Very Nice, Very Evil Overlord wishes us humans a Happy Halloween!

 

Backstage interview with Ryan Nemeth.

Lexi Nair is with the Hollywood Hunk and it seems he has a big surprise. Yes, a huge surprise! As you all know, things have been going great for Ryan in Hollywood. Big movie just came out, another one on the way, as we all know. Even some commercials! He might be the new voice of a certain grocery chain. Well, congratulations. Yes, thanks. Also, national comedy tour coming! #Hunkamania, get your tickets now! But really, in order for the success he’s having in Hollywood to translate to the ring, he needs to secure “the upper echelon of management.” Which is why he’s brought us here, to CJ Perry’s door!

Well, good luck with that. Thanks! No hug. Okay! Ryan knocks on CJ’s door, the door opens up, but MIRO is there! Please, come in. Ryan isn’t so sure now, but then Miro YANKS Ryan into the room and throws him at a wall! The Redeemer is already beating down another prospect, will he not stop until CJ herself gives up this endeavor?

 

AEW Women’s World Championship Fright Night Fight: Hikaru Shida VS Abadon!

Spooky, scary wrestling sends shivers down your spine! But with Full Gear as the destination, will the Shining Samurai slay the Living Dead Girl? Or will Abadon spawn a new title reign this close to Halloween?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and with the decorations all around, we see who gets the trick and who gets the treat!

The bell rings and fans fire up as the two circle. Shida works to stay calm staring down spooky Abadon, and the two knuckle lock. They have a test of strength, but then Abadon knees low, and goes for the arm! Shida avoids being bitten, she remembers last time! Shida kicks low, headlocks, but Abadon throws body shots. Abadon powers out, Shida runs her over, and fans fire up! They duel as Abadon sits up! Shida is spooked but she swings. Abadon dodges, RANAS, and Shida staggers up. Abadon watches Shida and grabs a bone! Shida has a grave stone! They both swing, the bone breaks the stone, because the stone is really foam!

Shida still tries but the “stone” is completely broken! She dodges the bone club to then DROPKICK! Shida puts Abadon in a corner, climbs up, and fires up! Fans fire up with her, and Shida rains down fists! Shida goes all the way to TEN, then she kicks Abadon out. Shida MISSILE DROPKICKS and down goes Abadon! Fans fire up as Shida then looks outside, but where’d Abadon go? Where, oh where, did that spooky ghoul go? She peeks out from under the apron skirt to trip Shida! Shida kicks Abadon away, hurries to her feet, but where could Abadon poke out from now? The other side! Abadon runs up to DECK Shida!

Fans fire up as Abadon grabs a bright orange trash can lid! It’s a Trash O’ Lantern, and she SMACKS Shida with it! Abadon is having fun now as Collision goes picture in picture.

Abadon puts Shida in the ring, runs in and BASEMENT CODE BREAKERS! Cover, TWO! Shida survives but Abadon is more amused than anything. Abadon CLUBS Shida, CLUBs her again, but Shida hits back. They brawl, Abadon CLUBS Shida, then grabs that bone club! Abadon CHOKES Shida against ropes but the ref can only reprimand in this spooky No Disqualifications setting. Abadon lets off to threaten the ref with the bone. The ref reprimands again, Abadon goes back to Shida, but Shida hits back with a bone club of her own! Abadon and Shida hit each other, Abadon CLUBS Shida down!

Abadon drags Shida up, reels her in, and snap suplexes! Cover, TWO! Shida is still in this but Abadon dribbles her off the mat! Abadon grabs her Trash O’ Lantern to SMACK Shida with it again! And again! Shida falls over and Abadon grins an evil grin. Abadon SMACKS Shida while she’s down and Collision goes to break.

Collision returns and Abadon has Shida in a facelock. Shida fights up, throws body shots, and she ROCKS Abadon with forearm after forearm! Abadon just HEADBUTTS back! Abadon whips, Shida blocks, so Abadon ROCKS her again! Abadon whips, Shida JUMP KNEES! Fans fire up with Shida and she sits Abadon up. Shida goes to the trash can in the corner, and takes out the broom! Shida goes up the corner, fans fire up, WITCH’S FLIGHT- NO, Abadon avoids the stomps! They DOUBLE LARIAT and both go down! Fans fire up and chant “HOLY SHIDA!” Abadon bails out and Shida goes to a corner. Abadon brings out a baseball bat! Covered in bats!

Abadon aims, and she JAMS Shida with the bat! But then Shida gets around, has the bat to CHOKE Abadon, but they go to ropes. The bat falls out of the ring, Shida ROCKS Abadon, but then Abadon just stares Shida down. Shida kicks, Abadon shakes her head! Shida fires a forearm but Abadon is just drooling slime! Shida CLUBS and CLUBS and KICKS, then runs, into a LARIAT! Cover, TWO!! Shida survives and now Abadon is mad. Abadon fires down fists, Shida pushes free, but Abadon rolls Shida up onto the broom! TWO, and Abadon SUPERKICKS! Abadon drags Shida up to RAM her into buckles!

Fans boo but then Abadon brings out the bucket of candy! She pours the candy out, and all those hard candies will really hurt. Abadon goes up to BLOCKBUSTER onto the candy!! Cover, TWO!! Shida survives again but Abadon is furious! Abadon reels Shida in but Shida back drops! Abadon sunset flips, TWO! Shida sits, TWO! Both women hurry, Abadon gets a pumpkin but Shida has her kendo stick! Shida dodges the smashing pumpkin to SMACK Abadon! And kick! And HEADSHOT! Abadon falls onto the candy! Then TAMASHII KNEE!! Cover, TWO!! Abadon survives but Shida gets the JACK O’LANTERN!

Shida puts the pumpkin on Abadon’s head, then KATANA KNEES!! Cover, Shida wins!

Winner: Hikaru Shida, by pinfall (still AEW Women’s World Champion)

The horror movie is over and the hero has made it through! But here comes Timeless Toni Storm! She kicks off the shoes, skips her way down to the ring, and hops onto the commentary table! Toni eats a peach and waves hi to Shida, but Shida is utterly confused. Will Storm steal the spotlight from Shida in Tinsel Town? Or will Shida kick it into Full Gear and keep her title reign going?

 

AEW hears from FTR and the Absolute.

Dax Harwood says last time they fought, Ricky Starks took something from FTR that meant a hell of a lot. And Starks may not give FTR a rematch, and Dax doesn’t blame him. But tonight they’re 1v1 and Dax has a lot of respect for Starks the performer. But as a man, Dax can’t say there’s any respect. But he will beat Starks like he stole something! But Starks says that it took FTR literal years to become the tag team that they are, but it took Starks & Morrissey literal minutes to become the champions. Starks will stomp Dax out as quickly as he did that night, and in Absolute fashion, and the biggest way he knows how. Will Starks continue to take the #TopGuysOut?

 

AEW hears from Keith Lee and Shane Taylor.

The Limitless One says, “Let’s talk history, Mr. Taylor. It seems to be what you’re hung up on.” But Bad Boy Shaney T. wants Keith to understand exactly why he’s challenging him. Shane wants to prove he is the best, and that is who Keith is right now. Keith says they teamed together in 2015 and ran roughshod over ROH. They had fun! But Shane is upset because Keith too an opportunity. Shane says Keith is why he pushes himself. Keith IS Limitless. However, Keith has been more successful NOT because he is better but because he is more “palatable.” But Keith says this will be a great opportunity to make an example out of Shane.

Shane said he promised to put Keith in the ground, and he meant that. He will be the man to find Keith’s limits. These two titans are on a collision course, when and where will they finally have it out?

 

ROH World Television Championship: Samoa Joe VS Rhett Titus!

The One True King of Wrestling Television is just FIVE days away from breaking the record for longest single reign with this belt, as held by Jay Lethal. But he faces The Professional, a man who has been an ROH World TV Champion in his own right. Will Titus take this crown from the king? Or will nothing stop Joe from making history?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see who sits upon the throne of honor!

The Code of Honor is upheld, the bell rings, and these two circle. Fans sing “Joe is gonna kill~ you!” but Titus wrenches Joe’s bad arm. Joe powers Titus to ropes, powers out, but Titus ROCKS Joe! And CHOPS! And ROCKS! And runs, only for Joe to CLOBBER him! Fans fire up, Joe waits on Titus, and he JABS! JABS! JABS! Joe fires off in the corner until Titus sits down! The ref counts, Joe lets off, and then Joe stands Titus up. Joe whips corner to corner, run sin to BACK ELBOW and PELE! Titus falls but Joe stands him up again. Joe CHOPS Titus, whips him corner to corner, but Titus BOOTS him away!

Titus skins the cat to the top rope, then leaps, but Joe just moves aside. Fans cheer and Joe CHOPS Titus again! Joe hoists Titus up, tucks him in, but Titus fights free! Titus leaps up and over Joe, keeps moving, and he BOOTS Joe in the corner! Titus keeps moving, and gives another BOOT! Titus still keeps moving, but runs into the “SIT YO ASS DOWN!” URENAGE! Joe storms around, gets Titus in the COQUINA CLUTCH, and Titus taps! Joe wins!

Winner: Samoa Joe, by pinfall (still ROH World Television Champion)

Violence manifest, dominance made flesh, and now unincumbered when it comes to becoming THE longest reigning ROH World Television Champion! Will anyone ever stop Samoa Joe?

 

Backstage interview with Team QTV.

Renee Paquette is with Harley Cameron, Aaron Solo, Johnny TV and of course QT Marshall. She says it’s been a minute since we got a new episode of QTV, but Harley takes the mic and tells Renee to shush a minute. Because how they’re starting this is by introducing their newest theme song and music video, “The Best Thing on TV!” Okay, go ahead, proceed. Yes, strong stuff. But QT, it has been a minute since we’ve seen him, so what is he up to? QT says yes, when he won the AAA Latin American Championship in Mexico City, he told the entire world that he was going to defend it with honor and prestige, and that is literally what he has been doing.

QT has been traveling the world with this title, defending against anyone and everyone, and he may have even set the record for title defenses in the history of this belt, in just a couple months! But quick scoop: QT is back in AEW, and he will be defending this title against some of the best luchadores AEW has, because he’s been told AEW is the place where the best luchadores are. So he will be watching very closely, and defending this title very, very soon. Any names that come to mind? Oh, Renee, one scoop at a time. Thank you. Yeah, don’t be greedy. Then who will be the first to step to QT’s Latin American Championship?

 

Claudio Castagnoli speaks.

“Broken orbital bone from either an Orange Punch or a Rainmaker. Which one? We don’t know. But in all honesty, which one, I don’t care! Because I’m gonna make both of you pay for what you’ve done to my friend! Okada, be it in the United States or Japan, I am coming for you. I will find you. And I will make you pay! Orange, I don’t have to go looking for you. You and me, in Louisville, this Wednesday on Dynamite for your International Championship. I know what I’m gonna do. I know what I’m capable off. And just thinking about that, honestly, it frightens me a little bit. But you hurt one of us. You hurt one of the Blackpool Combat Club. And now, I’m gonna hurt you! See you on Wednesday. Good luck.”

The Swiss Superman has issued the ultimatum, but will Freshly Squeezed be ready?

 

Dax Harwood w/ Cash Wheeler VS Ricky Starks w/ “Big Bill” Morrissey!

Dax the Ax and The Absolute have each said their parts, but now it is time to back up words with actions! Will Dax earn FTR that tag title rematch? Or will Starks clear FTR out of the way once and for all?

Wait, the lights went out? Uh oh, you don’t think… The lights come up, and there in the crowd, The House of Black watches! Fans fire up but FTR is furious given how Malakai, Brody & Buddy ruined FTR’s match last week. The bell rings on this match, Starks and Dax circle but Dax can’t focus. They tie up, go around, and Starks puts Dax in a corner. The ref counts, Dax turns things around, but Dax lets off clean. They tie up again, Dax waistlocks but Starks switches. Dax arm-drags Starks down for an armlock but Starks headscissors. Dax kips free, then grabs a leg to trip Starks. Starks slips away and fans cheer.

Starks and Dax circle, tie up, and they go around. Dax puts Starks in a corner again, but Starks avoids the chop! Starks wrenches, YANKS the arm, and wrenches again. Dax rolls, kips, but Starks headlocks. Dax wrenches out to headlock but Starks powers out. Dax runs Starks over! Things keep moving, Starks hurdles but Dax turns hip toss into hip toss! But Starks kicks Dax away to arm-drag and armlock! Dax headscissors, Starks kips free, but Dax headlocks for a takeover! Fans cheer the exchange, but Starks fights up. Starks powers Dax to a corner, lets off slowly, but throws a body shot! And a forearm! And a haymaker!

The ref reprimands, Starks CLUBS Dax, then follows him along the way. Starks CHOPS, ROCKS Dax, but Dax comes back to CHOP! And CHOP! Dax brings Starks out to snap suplex! Dax drops a leg, covers, ONE!! Starks is hanging tough but Dax stays cool. Dax scoops to SLAM Starks into a drop zone, then Dax goes up the corner. Dax glares at the House of Black, and he DIVING FLOPS as Starks moves! Starks drags Dax up, bumps Dax off buckles, and then wrenches to go up the ropes. Starks gives us some Absolute Old School! AX HANDLE! Starks then runs side to side to STRADDLE ATTACK Dax on the ropes!

Dax sputters, Starks & Bill soak up the heat, and then Starks goes to the apron. APRON LEG DROP! Another shoutout to The Phenom, and Starks covers, TWO! Starks drags Dax up, fires forearms, and fans rally. Dax CHOPS and Starks falls back! Starks gets up to ROCK Dax, but Dax CHOPS Starks! Starks and Dax CHOP back and forth, Starks headlocks but Dax powers out. Starks runs Dax over, things speed up, and Starks hurdles, but Dax TOSSES him out! Starks hits the floor, fans fire up, and Dax builds speed! Dax slides, but into the apron skirt trap! Starks BOOTS Dax, fires off on him, and Cash protests!

The ref counts, Starks drags Dax outta the skirt and to the ramp! Snap suplex onto the ramp! Starks smiles and so does The House, and Starks even knows we’re going picture in picture!

Starks catches his breath while the ref checks Dax. Dax is still in this so Starks drags him up. Starks brings Dax around, Dax powers out and runs in, but into a back drop! Dax hits the floor and Starks soaks up the cheers and jeers. Starks drags Dax up and in, stares Cash down, then slides in to cover, TWO! Dax is still in this and Starks grows frustrated. Starks clamps on a chinlock and grinds Dax down. Dax endures, Cash coaches him, and Dax fights up. Cash rallies the fans, Dax throws hands, and Starks staggers to a corner. Dax CHOPS, then hoists Starks up top. Dax CHOPS again, climbs up, but Starks fires back!

Starks knocks Dax down, then MISSILE DROPKICKS! Cover, TWO! Starks is frustrated and talks some smack, then looms over Dax as Collision goes to break.

Collision returns and Dax has Starks up top now! Fans fire up as Dax brings Starks to the very top, for a SUPER DUPER PLEX! Fans fire up while both men are down! The House of Black is still watching, nonplussed that Dax has turned the tables. Fans rally, Dax and Starks stir and a standing count starts. Both men rise up at 5 of 10, then stand at 7. Starks swings, misses and Dax CHOPS! Starks tries again, Dax CHOPS again! And again! And fires forearms and CHOPS! Dax whips, Starks ducks ‘n’ dodges to LARIAT! Starks fires up and he brings Dax up and in. Starks underhooks, but Dax fights the lift!

Dax lifts Starks up, PILEDRIVER!! Cover, Bill drags Dax off!! The fans boo and Cash is furious! Bill defends his innocence but the ref suspects something. The ref keeps Bill and Cash back, then he and Dax return to the ring. Starks gets Dax for a PILEDRIVER!! Cover, STARKS WINS!

Winner: Ricky Starks, by pinfall

The Absolute’s gigantic insurance policy saves him! The House of Black seems to be okay with this, but then the lights go out! The lights go up, and Julia Hart is on stage! She raises her hand to the sky, and the lights go back out! When the lights come back up this time, the House is in the ring! They stare Bill & Starks down, but then stand with them against FTR. Wait! La Faccion Ingobernable is here!? What does LFI want with all these teams? Rush, Vance & Dralistico stare FTR down, but then they go after the House! LFI & FTR fight off The House, Starks & Bill! It is chaos and the fans are loving it!

Bill & Starks get away with the tag titles, then the House follows! Fans chant “SI SI SI!” but then, what kind of alliances are forming in AEW?

 

Backstage interview with Andrade El Idolo.

Lexi is now with The Face of Latino Wrestling and brings up last week’s business proposition from CJ Perry. And we saw the return of LFI, who he has a deep connection with. So how is all of this affecting him? Andrade says he is a businessman. And this is his business, nobody else’s. That’s neither a confirmation or denial, so who will The Idol choose to align with?

 

Backstage interview with Kris Statlander, Willow Nightingale & Skye Blue.

Lexi is now with the AEW TBS Champion, the Babe with the Power and Chicago Skye, and says Kris wanted this time to talk with her friends, just like last night. What’s on her mind? She wanted to talk about last night and that Fatal 4 Way. They both had a great shot, and they both lost. So whatever is going on here, they need to settle it now. Willow says yeah, it would’ve been great if she got to face Shida tonight, and she thinks they both stood a chance. But Skye, more than anything, there was this tension between them, and it just keeps growing. Ever since they got misted by Julia Hart and that spooky dust, something’s been getting worse.

Julia was back tonight, should they address this? Skye says anything she has to say to Julia will be between the two of them. Skye leaves, Willow and Kris aren’t sure what to make of that. Will Skye only get darker from here on?

 

Claudio Castagnoli VS Tracy Williams!

The Swiss Superman issued that ultimate earlier tonight, but looks to put a punctuation on it. Will Hot Sauce be an example of what’s about to happen to Freshly Squeezed?

OH NO Claudio UPPERCUTS Tracy even before the bell!! The bell rings, Claudio drags Tracy up to whip and UPPERCUT! Claudio fires off UPPERCUT after UPPERCUT, the ref counts but Claudio doesn’t stop, even as Tracy sits down in the corner! Claudio hauls Tracy up to short arm LARIAT! Claudio drags Tracy up to short arm LARIAT again! The elbow pad comes off, as does the BCC shirt, and Claudio stands Tracy up. He says this is for Orange! UPPERCUT!! Cover, Claudio wins!

Winner: Claudio Castagnoli, by pinfall

The Hot Sauce just got smoked! But now Claudio puts Tracy in a LEBELL LOCK!! Claudio uses Bryan’s move to send another message! Is Claudio going to beat the pulp out of Orange to take that gold?

 

MJF prepares backstage.

He’s just moments away from the main event, and Samoa Joe walks over to applaud and hype MJF up. Joe says MJF looks ready to do what the world expects of him tonight. But Joe reminds MJF of his offer. MJF doesn’t have many friends but Joe could be a friend. He just has to give Joe what Joe’s gonna get on his own anyways: a rematch for the AEW World Championship. But hey, that look means MJF is upset, Joe would never push such an ultimatum on him. But if MJF finds himself in a bad way tonight, just scream his name and Joe will be there for his “friend.” Kenny’s a dangerous man, Joe will keep his ears open.

Joe heads out and MJF has a lot to think about. Will the People’s Scumbag accept the help of the One True King of Wrestling Television?

 

AEW World Championship: MJF VS Kenny Omega!

The Generational Talent takes on perhaps the best there is, the best there was, and the best there ever will be. But The Cleaner’s Hitman cosplay aside, will he prove he’s truly the Best Bout Machine? Or will Maxwell Jacob Friedman prove he IS better than the best, and we know it!

The introductions are made, sadly there’s no belt to raise, but one way or another, the winner here is going to Full Gear!

The bell rings and the fans are losing their minds already! The two circle, tie up, and Omega waistlocks. MJF switches, Omega wrenches and wristlocks, but MJF rolls, rolls and wrenches back. Omega wrenches, wrenches, and snapmares MJF into a chinlock, only for MJF to slip out and hammerlock. Omega rolls, trips MJF, and has a toehold. MJF goes for the arm, Omega fights up and hooks legs to then float to a facelock. MJF slips out to wrench but Omega gets away, and the fans cheer the standoff. Omega and MJF reset, circle again, and fans chant for “BOTH THESE GUYS!” MJF and Omega tie up again, and MJF headlocks.

Omega pulls hair but the ref reprimands. Omega powers out, MJF ducks ‘n’ dodges, but then stops himself so he can step on Omega and strut his stuff! Fans cheer while Omega frowns. Omega runs in, MJF dodges and things speed up again. MJF hurdles, Omega handsprings, and they keep moving! Omega hurdles, MJF stops to cover, TWO!! Omega headlocks for the takeover, MFJ headscissors. Omega kips free, roles reverse and now Omega headscissors but MJF kips free. They both handspring up and the fans fire up! MJF says Omega’s wasn’t quite as good, and Omega nods in admittance. MJF then has everyone quiet down, because he offers a handshake.

Fans cheer the “SPORTS-MAN-SHIP!” Omega smirks and paces, then he accepts the handshake. But then MJF pokes him in the eyes! Fans cheer again because duh, MJF is a scumbag! MJF then runs, but Omega dumps him out of the ring! Omega starts the Terminator Drums and fans fire up as Omega builds speed! Omega FLIES! and he takes MJF down! Omega lands on his feet and fans fire up even more! Omega brings MJF up and into the ring, but MJF builds sped!? FOSBURY FLOP!! Direct hit on Omega and MJF takes a puff.

Omega keeps cool and he wraps MJF up in a straitjacket stretch! MJF endures, fans rally, and MJF fights up. MJF moves around to put Omega on ropes, and the ref counts. MJF lets off slowly, but then swings! Omega dodges to clothesline MJF up and out! MJF tumbles to the floor hard, and Omega goes to the corner! Omega goes up and up and GOLDEN TRIANGLE! Shoutout to Ibushi! Fans lose their minds, Omega high-fives the front row, and then Omega stalks MJF back into the ring. Omega climbs a corner and MJF stands, into the BLINDSIDE MISSILE DROPKICK! Cover, TWO! MJF is still in this!

Omega drags MJF up, reels him in to a fireman’s carry, “YOU! CAN’T! ESCAPE!” ROLLING SENTON, and then the M OONSAULT into knees! MJF saves himself, but he is still down while Omega crawls to another corner. MJF rises, both men head for each other and MJF dodges to lariat! And elbow! And scoop to SLAM! Fans fire up with MJF again, and he storms up on Omega to dribble him off buckles! The fans count all the way to TEN, then MJF climbs up the corner! MJF rains down fists, and fans count along again, all the way to nine, for MJF to then BITE Omega’s forehead! The ref counts, MJF lets off and he whips corner to corner.

They go to ropes and Omega goes to the apron. MJF stands at 7, and he follows Omega out there. MJF sees the table, brings Omega up, but Omega ROCKS MJF first! MJF ROCKS Omega back, and again, but Omega POINT-BLANK V-TRIGGERS! Omega has a wild look in his eyes and he reels MJF in. Omega full nelsons and fans freak out. APRON SNAP DRAGON!!!! Fans lose their minds and the ref checks on MJF. MJF is somehow still in this, but Omega is looking to his table now. Omega drags MJF out and the ref says don’t do it. Omega ignores him to gut wrench MJF, to DOCTOR BOMB through the table!!!

Fans lose their minds all over again as even Omega is down in the wreckage! The ref checks both men as Collision goes picture in picture!

The medics also check in on MJF. Somehow, someway, it seems MJF is still this, perhaps by a minor miracle. The ref still clears the wreckage and the medic checks with Omega just to be sure. Omega sits up, he’s somehow okay, and Collision returns to single picture. Fans cheer as both men manage to stand, and Omega hobbles after MJF and gets in the ring. MJF flounders, staggers, stumbles, then falls over again. Omega hobbles after MJF as MJF uses ropes to stand up. Omega eggs MJF on and MJF glares at Omega.

Omega survives but MJF is too tired to be upset. Fans rally up, MJF and Omega rise again, and MJF reels Omega in. MJF underhooks, lifts Omega, SHOULDER BREAKER! SUPERKICK!

MJF survives by a literal foot! Omega is seething as Collision again goes picture in picture.

Omega and MJF are still down so the ref starts another standing count. Omega forces himself to sit up, and MJF flops out of the ring. Omega goes out to fetch MJF, but he’s almost dead weight. Omega still drags MJF up using the tights, and reels him in as Collision returns to single picture. Omega gets MJF up, to BARRIER BOMB!! MJF writhes and cries in pain about a rib. Omega shows no mercy, though, as he rallies the fans and he takes the protective padding off the barrier! Omega drags MJF back up and the ref says no, this has to end in the ring! Omega says fine, and he puts MJF back in. Omega then goes up the corner and takes aim.

Fans rally, Omega wants MJF to rise, and MJF does manage to stand. MJF’s on noodle legs, but he still hits the ropes to trip Omega up! Omega is stuck up top now, and MJF pounds the mat. The fans fire up again and MJF goes up the corner. MJF is on the very top, he gives some thrusts, but Omega DROPS MJF on the buckles! Omega then runs corner to corner to BLINDSIDE V-TRIGGER!! And SNAP DRAGON!! MJF sits up, into another V-TRIGGER!! Cover, TWO!!! MJF survives the onslaught and the fans fire up again! Omega storms around, MJF drags himself up, and Omega takes aim. BANG and Omega runs, V-TRIGGER!!

Omega reloads and goes again! VTRIGGER!! Omega drags MJF up to Electric Chair again! Tuck and- WAIT! Don Callis is here! With a screwdriver of all things! Fans boo as Omega dares Dastardly Don to have some guts! But then MJF rolls Omega up! TWO!! Omega has the cover, TWO!! Omega runs to BASEMENT V-TRIGGER!!! Cover, TWO!!!! MJF survives and now Callis distracts the ref! Omega is furious, he drags MJF up, and the ref EEJCTS Callis! Callis leaves, Omega Electric Chair Lifts again, but MJF victory rolls it! TWO!! Omega has it, TWO!! MJF has it with legs crossed, TWO!!

Both men stand, Omega runs in but MJF puts him on the apron! MJF KNEES Omega, has him in the ropes, HEATSEEKER!! Cover, TWO!??! Omega survives and MJF can’t even manage to be angry! Fans chant “This is Awesome!” with everyone on their feet! MJF goes up the corner, says this one’s for Adam Cole BAYBAY! Omega stands, into the PANAMA SUNRISE, but Omega back drops it! And sits on MJF! TWO?!?! MJF escapes and no one can believe it! Omega has to check, he runs in at MJF and MJF pops him up to SUPERKICK! Now that was Cole like! PANAMA SUNRISE!!!! MJF puts Omega in the ropes, for a HEATSEEKER!!! Cover, MJF WINS!!!

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

Maybe Callis was a factor, maybe he wasn’t, because in the end, MJF still did it! MJF still defeats Omega, without calling for Samoa Joe. Joe is watching backstage, perhaps only moderately happy that MJF survived. Wait, Wardlow is watching backstage, too! He seems less happy than Joe, but at the same time, they both want after the Devil of AEW. MJF made it through Omega, and Hobbs likes seeing Omega down. And Bullet Club Gold also likes that it’ll still be MJF meeting White at Full Gear. MJF shows Omega respect by offering a real handshake, and Omega accepts it. But now, can MJF focus fully on getting the Triple B back?


My Thoughts:

A great episode for Collision here, though with some moves that are confusing. I swore House of Black was advertised for action but apparently they changed plans so that Claudio could destroy Tracy Williams to send a message to Orange Cassidy on top of a promo where he sent a message to Orange Cassidy. The match feels like a last minute thing, but whatever, Claudio has momentum going into what will surely still be Cassidy retaining the title. I do like that Claudio wants after Okada still. I don’t think they wait for like Forbidden Door 2024 or even WrestleKingdom 18 in January. Could Okada show up for a Full Gear match? Or Worlds End in December? That’d be cool.

Kris’ promo with Willow and Skye was a bit redundant given just last night on Rampage, they also had a promo with almost the exact same set-up. But even so, it was still good for them to mention Julia’s return tonight as the House of Black just oddly watched Dax VS Starks. And further odd move, LFI returns as Faces to help FTR against Starks, Bill & The House of Black? Rather than helping Andrade back when he was having beef with Bullet Club Gold? Well, perhaps this is a last minute change, too, since Bryan Danielson is legit out with a broken orbital bone. BCC can’t team with FTR against The House and Absolute, so someone has to.

Speaking of Andrade, his promo was vague but in a good way. He isn’t showing his hand, though at the same time maybe AEW just isn’t sure themselves what he’s doing. I laughed at Miro surprising Ryan Nemeth and beating him up, but maybe we still get El Idolo VS The Redeemer as the next phase of CJ Perry’s story. Really good promo video from Keith Lee and Shane Taylor to further hype the grudge match that is taking way too long to put together, why not just say it’s for AEW Full Gear or ROH Final Battle and be done with it so we aren’t all just sitting here wondering? It’s like how Keith and Swerve still haven’t really had things out.

The promo with Acclaimed almost seemed redundant but then they had a great change where Caster gets catfished by an MJFake account because that’s how desperate Caster is being. Good promo from Team QTV, but apparently QT defending the AAA Latin American Championship against Daga in ROH doesn’t count for anything here on AEW. But whatever, QT defending this title on American television against the great assortment of luchadores AEW does have signed (Lucha Bros, Komander, Metalik, Gravity) will be a great story for QT. And while Renee brought up QTV not having an “episode” in awhile, I’m just fine with that, we don’t need more of their TMZ parody. We just need QT and Johnny getting in the ring and giving us good matches.

Speaking of great matches, White VS Fox was an awesome opener, and of course White wins to keep his momentum up. Nice attempt by MJF to steal the belt back to circumvent this whole 8 Man Tag thing, but of course it fails. Gunns of course squash The Tate Twins, and I’m a bit disappointed Dalton Castle didn’t find Joe backstage. Joe of course beats Rhett Titus to now make it to the top spot as longest reigning ROH World TV Champion ever, I just wish he’d do some of these defenses ON ROH TV. Maybe ROH TV this next week will give us Castle confronting Joe and demanding that title match, with Stokely Hathaway stepping in to set something up. It NEEDS to happen.

Really fun Fright Night Fight match, Abadon with her Spawn cosplay and Shida was Ada Wong. Good use of props, everyone loved the pumpkin head Katana finish, and of course Toni Storm steals the spotlight to remind everyone she and Shida are facing each other at Full Gear now. At least I would think so, Shida doesn’t need to defend the belt but we could get some really fun promos between the two. A great bit with Joe talking to MJF before the main event, and then what an awesome main event. That was borderline PPV worthy, and while I thought BCG was gonna go after MJF for earlier, Callis trying to go after Omega was good stuff, too.

Of course MJF wins so that he can still have that 8 Man Tag on Dynamite, and there has to come a moment of desperation where Caster and Acclaimed rush out there, Caster offers a tag and MJF accepts it. Fans will go nuts for it, The Acclaimed will take care of winning on MJF’s behalf, probably pinning a Gunn, and then MJF will have his belt back with two weeks left before Full Gear. Though if pacing was better, maybe said moment would happen for the go-home Dynamite or something. But hey, maybe the homestretch of the build is how MJF is learning to accept more friends outside of Adam Cole so they can watch his back.

My Score: 8.8/10

Hobbs moves the other set of steps around, brings Sammy back up, and Hobbs whips Sammy hard into railing! Hobbs asks Kevin Kelley what he’s going on about but Kevin isn’t sure Hobbs means. Hobbs tells Kevin to stand up so Kevin does, and then Hobbs demands Kevin hand over his belt. His belt? Hobbs tells him again, give over the belt. Kevin gives in and hands said belt over. Hobbs then takes the belt and uses it to LASH Sammy on the back! Fans are torn but Hobbs LASHES Sammy again!

Sammy writhes, Nigel tells Kevin this is his fault. Hobbs winds up, Sammy dodges the belt to SUPERKICK! And SUPERKICK again! Sammy grabs a chair, and he SMACKS Hobbs with it! And then HEADSHOT!

But Sammy slips free, and CUTTERS to the steps!! Sammy gets the belt now and he LASHES Hobbs in return!

And he SPINEBUSTERS Sammy through the tables!!! All of Springfield, Missouri lose their minds while the ref checks on both men, and Collision goes picture in picture!

Hobbs snarls as he slowly rises up out of the wreckage. Sammy stirs but Hobbs clears out the debris to bring him up. Hobbs HEADBUTTS Sammy and Sammy staggers away. Sammy gets in the ring but Hobbs pursues. Hobbs climbs the corner?! Hobbs then FLYING LARIATS! The Powerhouse proves he can fly, then he covers, TWO!! Sammy survives but Hobbs grinds him into the mat! Hobbs talks trash on Sammy while he fishhooks the nose and pulls on the ear! Hobbs then drags Sammy up, whips him to a corner hard, and Sammy drops to his knees. Hobbs looms over Sammy, eggs him on, and the fans rally up.

The fans are thunderous, this might be the most tables in a non-table match! Hobbs hauls Sammy up, scoops him, and aims, but Sammy slips free to POST Hobbs first!

The fans are loving it, because now we’ve entered TLC territory! Sammy gets that ladder in the ring while the fans lose their minds!

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?

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.

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 fans fire up for Keith as he aims at Malakai. Keith drags Malakai up, underhooks, but Malakai fights and the leg gives up! Malakai shoves Keith to a corner, but Keith pops Malakai up. The knee still holds Keith back so Malakai CLUBS Keith on the back.

Winner: Malakai Black, by pinfall

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?

Deeb CHOPS but Frost pushes Frost to CHOP again! Frost stomps a mudhole into Deeb, then brings her around for a FISHERMAN SUPLEX! Deeb flounders to ropes but Frost hobbles over.

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. They tie up, go around, and Sydal headlocks for a takeover. Action stands up but Sydal hits another takeover. Sydal then snapmares but Action handsprings through! Fans cheer and the two go again. Sydal tilt-o-whirls to RANA, but Action handsprings through again! Action dusts himself off, but Sydal runs up. Action wrenches, CHOPS, and then knuckle locks to go up and up and FLYING ARM-DRAG! Fans fire up as Action DROPKICKS Sydal down!

Action kips up and smiles while Top Flight talks some smack to Private Party. Action then runs and IMPLODER TORNILLOS onto Sydal! Cover, ONE, but Action tags Darius. They double whip Sydal, but Sydal KICKS and KICKS and SOBATS! Fans fire up with Sydal and he gets a “SHOTS! SHOTS! SHOTS!” chant going. Sydal KICKS Darius’ leg over an dover, but Darius catches him to a pump-handle GUTBUSTER! Then GAMANGIRI! Sydal flounders away, Bryan Keith tags in! Keith runs up but Darius headlocks. Keith powers up and out, Darius RAMS him, but Keith rebounds to BOOT! Darius falls, Kassidy tags in!

The fans rally as Zay dodges Keith, fires “SHOTS! SHOTS! SHOTS!” and then ROCKS Keith. Zay whips, Keith reverses, but Zay goes up and Quen tags in. Zay RANAS Keith into Quen’s GAMANGIRI! Then Quen springboards to SPLASH Keith! Cover, TWO! Keith is still in this and he tags out to Penta! The fans fire up as Penta somersaults in, but Quen shows he can somersault, too. 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. The fans fire up, and Penta makes the pass to Alex Abrahantes!

Penta says again, CERO! MIEDO! Another pie face, but Dante tags in off Quen. Dante shoves Penta but then Komander tags in. Quen jumps on Dante, he and Penta mug him, and then everyone else rushes in! It’s a nine man melee and the ref reprimands them all! Things spill out, Dante and Komander stay in. Dante breaks free to JUMP KNEE, then runs, but Komander dodges!

Komander elbows back, then SUPERKICKS!

Dante flounders away, Komander jumps up top, and Komander tightrope walks to ARABIAN PRESS ARM-DRAG! Then a DROPKICK! The fans fire up as Komander covers, TWO! Komander tags Penta before he runs in, but Dante jumps up and over! Penta runs in to SLINGBLADE! And then SLINGBLADE again! Dante staggers up, into a SUPERKICK! Action tags in to springboard, into a SUPERKICK! Private Party sends Darius into barriers! Penta tags Keith, puts Action in a corner, and GAMANGIRIS! Komander runs in, Penta is the step stool for Komander to FLYING FOREARM!

Komander feeds Dante to Keith’s fireman’s carry, USHIGOROSHI! Cover, Zay breaks it! The fans rally, Quen tags in off Keith, and Quen stomps away on Action as Rampage goes picture in picture!

Quen stomps and stomps but the ref counts. Quen lets off to drag Action up and bump him off buckles. Quen runs up to RAM Action, then tags in Zay. Private Party keeps Action trapped, Zay ENZIGIRIS Action down! Zay stomps now, “SHOTS! SHOTS! SHOTS!” Zay lets off to kick-step, then he tags Sydal. They stomp Action, “SHOTS! SHOTS! SHOTS!” Sydal lets off to rally the fans, then he drags Action up. Action throws body shots but Sydal CLUBS him down. Sydal stands Action up again to back suplex, but Action lands out, only for Sydal to HEEL KICK! Tag to Quen and Quen slingshot SENTONS!

Backstage interview with The Outcasts.

Renee Paquette is with Saraya and Harley and isn’t sure how much they’ve been watching Ruby Soho & Angelo Parker, but those two are off on their path of romance. Saraya DGAF about Soho x Parker!! 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
