It’s the Title Tuesday Buy In!

That’s right, Renee Paquette & RJ City are here to discuss, analyze and predict the action for this big Dynamite on a special night!

 

Buy-In – ROH World & NJPW Strong Openweight Championships, Winner Takes All: Eddie Kingston VS Minoru Suzuki!

The Mad King continues to reign with two crowns, but now he’s up against the King of Pancrase! Will the Meanest Man in the World take two titles in one night? Or will Eddie still be the double champion?

The introductions are made, the belts are raised, and we see who sets the pace for Title Tuesday!

The bell rings and fans rally up as these two men stare down. Eddie brings a strap down, then the other, he’s getting serious already! Suzuki smiles and lets Eddie have the first shot. Eddie CHOPS! Suzuki CHOPS! Eddie CHOPS! Suzuki CHOPS! Eddie sputters, but he comes back to CHOP! Suzuki winds up to CHOP! Eddie scowls, CHOPS, but Suzuki CHOPS! The CHOPS go back and forth, harder and harder, and then Eddie fires a flurry of CHOPS! Suzuki just laughs them off and the fans fire up! Suzuki eggs Eddie on so Eddie SLAPS him! Fans cheer Suzuki and he grins as he steps up to DECK Eddie with a forearm!

Fans fire up as Eddie is dazed but sits back up. Suzuki smiles and brings Eddie up to ROCK him again! Suzuki won’t let Eddie fall this time, either! Suzuki DECKS Eddie again! The ref checks but Eddie is somehow still in this, so Suzuki clamps onto an arm! Suzuki bends the fingers, twists the wrist and PULLS! Eddie gets the ROPEBREAK! The ref counts, Suzuki lets off at 4, and fans chant “MURDER GRAMPA!” Suzuki stomps Eddie to ropes, kicks him around, and Eddie gets mad. Eddie stands, Suzuki pie faces him, so Eddie CHOPS again! Suzuki eggs Eddie on so Eddie CHOPS again! Eddie shakes out his hand to CHOP again!

Suzuki ROCKS Eddie again! Team Triple J is watching backstage, loving that Eddie flops against ropes. Suzuki eggs Eddie on, and Eddie drags himself up in the corner. Eddie storms up to CHOP! Fans rally, Suzuki roars, and Suzuki winds up to ROCK Eddie! Eddie wobbles, sits down, but he looks up at Suzuki. Eddie flips Suzuki off! Suzuki BENDS that finger! Eddie CLUBS Suzuki but has to still go for the ROPEBREAK! The ref counts, Suzuki lets off and he scares the ref away. Suzuki storms back over to Eddie, drags him up, and Suzuki ROCKS him! Eddie CHOPS! Suzuki ROCKS Eddie! Eddie CHOPS!

Suzuki kicks, runs, but Eddie CHOPS again! Suzuki staggers from that one! Eddie fires up and fans are with him as he goes to the corner, MACHINE GUN CHOPS! But Suzuki just snarls and steps into the chops! Eddie CHOPS again, and again, and again! Suzuki backs down and Eddie reloads to MACHINE GUN CHOP! But Suzuki’s rage helps him power through! So Eddie CHOPS! And CHOPS! And CHOPS! Suzuki eggs Eddie on, Eddie CHOPS again! And again! We’re in another corner, for more MACHINE GUN CHOPS!! Suzuki swings, but Eddie catches him to an EXPLODER! Cover, TWO!!

Eddie grows frustrated but he drags Suzuki up. Eddie winds up, but Suzuki BOOTS him first! Suzuki whips, runs in, and BOOTS Eddie again! Suzuki snapmares, runs, and PENALTY KICKS! But Eddie sits up! Fans fire up and Suzuki runs again, to PENALTY KICK! But Eddie sits up again! Fans are thunderous and Suzuki runs again, to PENALTY KICK! Cover, TWO!! Eddie survives but Suzuki just grins. Eddie anchors Suzuki’s leg but Suzuki just drags him up. But Eddie CHOPS! Suzuki grins to CHOP! Eddie CHOPS! Suzuki CHOPS! Eddie CHOPS! Suzuki CHOPS again! Eddie CHOPS again! Suzuki CHOPS again!

Eddie has to catch his breath, but he CHOPS again! Suzuki grins and laughs as he stays standing! Then Suzuki ROCKS Eddie! But Eddie roars! Suzuki ROCKS him again! Eddie roars again, so Suzuki says here goes! He fires off fast hands from all sides, then he DECKS Eddie! Fans are thunderous again while Eddie checks his teeth. They’re all there, but then Suzuki stomps Eddie. Suzuki clamps on but Eddie fights the sleeper! So Suzuki traps an arm and wraps on the SLEEPER! Fans rally, Eddie fights up, Triple J want Eddie to pass out! Eddie sits back down and Suzuki leans all his weight, but the fans rally up.

Eddie flails, reaches out, fights around, and rolls! Suzuki holds on, it’s almost a Bully Choke! Eddie still fights up, red in the face as he is, and fans fire up as Eddie stands. Suzuki spins Eddie into the clinch! Gotch lift, but Eddie fights that! Eddie back drops free! Fans fire up for the URAKEN!! Cover, TWO!! Suzuki survives that Backfist to the Future, but Eddie doesn’t lose focus. Eddie runs, Suzuki dodges and shoots around, but Eddie elbows and URAKENS!! Cover, ONE?!?!? Suzuki stands right up with rage in his eyes! Fans are thunderous but Eddie just powers up again. A THIRD URAKEN!!!

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

The Mad King keeps his crowns as he conquers a living legend! But Lethal says that’s fine, he will get Eddie next. When and where will Eddie put up the ROH title against the ROH Grand Slam Champion?

As for Suzuki, he staggers his way back into the ring, and he walks his way over to Eddie. The two stare down as fans chant for “SU-ZU-KI!” The two nod, and Suzuki applauds Eddie. Fans cheer that, but then Suzuki SLAPS Eddie! So Eddie SLAPS Suzuki! And then they hug it out! Eddie raises Suzuki’s hand in respect, when and where will we see Suzuki back in AEW?

 

Tony Khan & Tony Schiavone are backstage.

AEW’s duo of Tony & Tony are here, just moments away from the official start of Title Tuesday Night Dynamite, but they have some news to share. Unfortunately, not happy news. It’s a big night, but the AEW medical team cannot clear Jon Moxley at this time. Moxley is on a great track of recovery, but he is not 100%, so he cannot compete for the International Championship. However, there will still be an International Championship match as Rey Fenix defends the title. But before TK can announce who it’ll be against, #OrangeHook walks in! Hook says it has to be Cassidy, right? He never got his rematch.

TK agrees there, that is a great idea. What does Cassidy say to Title Tuesday? “Uh, I guess.” Well, if he’s not sure- No no no, he’ll take it! Happy Birthday, by the way. Have a Dorito. Oh, thank you. TK takes a chip, and eats it! But will Cassidy use this rematch to get back to former glory?

 

Christian Cage speaks.

Captain Charisma opens the main show from the production truck, and says, “This is without a doubt the biggest AEW Dynamite ever, Title Tuesday! And how fitting is it the first thing that you see is the biggest star in this company, the TNT Champion, Christian Cage.” And speaking of his title, there is a match with big implications for it here tonight, Bryan Danielson VS Swerve Strickland to name a #1 Contender to be the man that faces Christian this Saturday night on Collision. Christian says he’s fine if it’s Swerve he faces because Swerve left a bad taste in Christian’s mouth when Swerve cost them that casket match at All In London!

As for Bryan Danielson, “a little birdie told” Christian that Bryan still fancies himself the best wrestler in the world, but the TNT title says otherwise! And in the main event of Dynamite, Christian’s Right Hand of Destruction, “the most complete big man in the business today,” Luchasaurus will end the run of The Rated R Superstar before it even begins. And before then, Christian might have to go out there in front of the live audience to elaborate on those three words he told Adam Copeland last week. And as the Face of TNT and Warner Brothers Discovery, Christian has secured the first thirty minutes of Dynamite being commercial free. “You’re welcome.”

Now one of you production a-holes, start the show! Y-Yes, sir… The opening video rolls, who makes it through an explosive Dynamite?

 

AEW TNT Championship #1 Contender’s Match: Bryan Danielson VS Swerve Strickland w/ The Mogul Embassy!

We just heard the champion’s opinions on both men, but only one man can be THE #1 Contender! This is a first-time-anywhere showdown, will the American Dragon slay the Mogul? Or will Kansas City, Missouri be whose house?

The bell rings and the two stare down. Fans fire up as the two approach, and they knuckle lock. They go around, go shoulder to shoulder, and then Swerve pushes down on the knuckle locks. Bryan rolls back, reverses pressure, and then drags Swerve down to push him to a double knuckle lock cover. TWO, Bryan pushes the arm down, ONE as Swerve puts the other arm up. Bryan pushes that arm down, ONE as Swerve bridges. Both men stand up, go around, and Swerve hooks a leg. Swerve pushes Bryan back but Bryan bridges! Swerve jumps but Bryan turns that to a monkey flip! They break the locks and fans fire up!

Bryan and Swerve stare down, reset, but then Swerve uses a leg guard. Swerve spins and corners Bryan but Bryan shifts to get the legs! Swerve fights Bryan’s attempts at holds, half nelsons then clinches, but Bryan fights up. Bryan puts Swerve on ropes, Nana complains, but Swerve turns things around. Swerve lets off with a SLAP! So Bryan SLAPS back! Bryan clinches, MONKEY FLIP, but Swerve handsprings through! Swerve comes back, Bryan runs and fakes Swerve out, to then redirect! Swerve still trips Bryan up! Ghost pin, TWO! Bryan has Swerve for a cradle, TWO! Swerve has it, TWO! Bryan has it, TWO!

They go back and forth, TWO and the two back off! Fans cheer this exchange and the two reset. Nana coaches Swerve but fans say “This is Awesome!” They circle, tie up, and go to ropes. Swerve lets off, but he cheap shots with a body shot! Swerve suplexes, but Bryan lands on the apron! Swerve KNEES low, goes up and out, but Bryan BOOTS first! Bryan CHOPS! Swerve CHOPS! They CHOP on the edge, back and forth, and then Bryan KICKS Swerve’s arm! Bryan wrenches that arm but swerve rakes eyes! Swerve POSTS Bryan, then scoops, APRON SIDEWALK SLAM! Fans fire up while Swerve shakes his hand out.

Nana says Swerve should finish this and Swerve puts Bryan in the ring. Swerve then goes up the corner, takes aim, and FALLING UPPERCUTS! Bryan writhes and Swerve hits the griddy! Nana says Bryan’s gonna get it! Cover, TWO! Bryan is still in this but Swerve drags Bryan into a chinlock, to then RAM him into the corner. Swerve traps one arm while firing body shots! Then Swerve whips corner to corner hard, and Nana talks more trash. Swerve scowls, drags Bryan up and gut wrenches, to POWERSLAM! But he holds on to deadlift BRAINBUSTER! Cover, TWO! Bryan is still in this but Swerve keeps his cool.

Swerve clamps onto an arm and a chinlock but the fans rally up. Bryan fights up, throws elbows, but Swerve knees low again. Bryan goes to a corner, Nana taunts the fans, but Swerve blocks a boot. Swerve slips around, hooks a leg, and hits a BACKBREAKER! Fans fire up as Swerve grins and goes up a corner. Bryan is still down, so Swerve 450 SPLASHES onto knees! Bryan saves himself and Swerve bails out, nana panicking just a bit. Bryan hits a FLYING KNEE from the apron! Fans fire up again and Bryan hobbles his way over. Fans are thunderous as Bryan puts Swerve in and climbs up the corner.

Bryan aims as Swerve stands, MISSILE DROPKICK! Direct hit and both men are down! The fans rally, Bryan rises, and he aims to KICK! KICK! KICK! And KICK! Fans fire up with each shot, “YES! YES! YES!” BUZZSAW! Cover, TWO! Swerve survives but Bryan drags him up. Bryan bumps Swerve off buckles, to then CHOP! And KICK! And CHOP! Then he whips corner to corner, but Swerve reverses. Bryan goes up and over, keeps moving, ducks ‘n’ dodges, but Swerve KICKS low! Bryan tumbles out and Swerve builds speed to handspring up and out! But Bryan dodges and slides back in, to build speed and DIVE into a haymaker!

Swerve pulls Bryan from the apron and “This is Awesome!” as Swerve suplexes Bryan into a Tree of Woe. Swerve then goes up the other side and Nana says to kick Bryan’s face in! Swerve is up top, for WOE STOMPS to the apron! Those were almost Swerve’s own Kill Stomps but maybe even more dangerous given the landing. Swerve puts Bryan in and Nana says time to go on to Collision! Swerve climbs up again, reloads, and KILL- NO, Bryan manages to roll back! HALF CRAB! Fans fire up as Bryan pulls on that leg! Swerve endures, reaches out, moves around, but Bryan drags him back into a HEEL HOOK!!

Swerve endures, kicks at Bryan with his free leg, but still has to go for the ROPEBREAK! Bryan lets off, then drags Swerve from ropes. Fans duel as Bryan goes up the corner. But Swerve UPPERCUTS first! Swerve climbs up, but Bryan holds onto ropes! Swerve still goes to the very top, but Bryan slips under and shoves Swerve! Swerve lands on his embassy, and then Bryan SUPER BACK SUPLEXES!! Bryan can’t make the cover after that hard landing, and Nana coaches Swerve to get up again. Fans rally, Bryan stands, and he says it is time to kick Swerve’s effin’ head in!! Bryan gets the wrists, for DRAGON STOMPS!!

But Swerve powers up? So Bryan KNEES him down, to DRAGON STOMP more! And then drop down into the omoplata, LEBELL LOCK!! Swerve flails, reaches out, claws his way over, but Bryan gets that other arm! RINGS OF SATURN! ROPEBREAK with a leg!! Bryan lets Swerve go and fans are torn. Bryan is after Swerve in the corner to KICK, then he runs corner to corner to DROPKICK! Swerve wobbles, Bryan keeps moving, but Bryan drops to his knees, having a hard time breathing! HOUSE CALL!! Swerve hurries up top, to KILL STOMP!!! Cover, TWO?!?! Bryan survives and Swerve is furious!

Swerve drags Bryan up, half nelsons, but Bryan RAMS him into a buckle and arm-drags free. Bryan dodges Swerve, runs back in, but Swerve pops Bryan up and hits a J M L DRIVER!! Cover, TWO!!! Swerve is shocked that Bryan survives! But wait, Nana throws off his headband and his jacket while distracting the ref! Swerve grabs the headband, the bedazzled crown! He wants to do Bryan like he did Hangman at WrestleDream! WAIT! Hangman runs up from the crowd to SNATCH that crown! Swerve is pissed but turns around into- NO, he catches Bryan! But then Bryan victory rolls! TWO!!!

Swerve escapes, swings, misses, and the BUSAIKU KNEE!!! Cover, BRYAN WINS!!

Winner: Bryan Danielson, by pinfall (NEW #1 Contender to the AEW TNT Champion)

The Cowboy gets revenge for WrestleDream and now the American Dragon is coming for Captain Charisma! Will Bryan prove HE is the better father when he becomes the Face of TNT? Or will Christian always have something up his sleeve?

 

Samoa Joe speaks.

“Hello. My name is Samoa Joe, ROH Television Champion, King of Television, and soon to be AEW World Champion. This Saturday at Collision, I begin my road to championship gold. This Saturday at Collision, I show the world why I am violence manifest, domination made flesh, why I am the man who goes out there and takes anything he wants from anyone he wants to. This Saturday at Collision, I begin my ascension towards greatness.”

 

Chris Jericho VS “Powerhouse” Will Hobbs w/ Don Callis!

Just when The Ocho thought he’d gained ground in the fight against his traitorous and slimy former friend, Don Callis’ “family” got a whole lot bigger and stronger! Hobbs helped demolish the Demo God last week, will he do it again on Title Tuesday? Or can The Wizard overcome the Powerhouse and avenge Kenny Omega?

The bell rings and fans rally up for Jericho. Jericho rushes in and fires off fists! Hobbs hits back, backs Jericho down, but Jericho hits back! They throw hands but Hobbs CLUBS away on Jericho! Hobbs whips Jericho corner to corner, runs in but into a BOOT! But then Jericho runs into a SPINEBUSTER! Cover, TWO!! Jericho survives the slam that Hobbs has put many a man away with, but Hobbs just grins and chuckles. Fans boo Hobbs and Callis but Hobbs rains down fists on Jericho’s head. Fans cuss out Callis and he acts like he doesn’t know why. Hobbs whips to SPINEBUSTER again! Hobbs tells Jericho to get up?

Hobbs paces, drags Jericho up, and then SPINEBUSTERS again!! Hobbs soaks up the heat as fans boo, and Callis likes what he sees as Hobbs hauls Jericho up again. “Anybody can get it!” Hobbs HEADBUTTS Jericho down! Jericho rises and fires hands, but Hobbs CLUBS him down! Hobbs stalks Jericho, drags him up again, for another SPINEBUSTER!! That’s four, but Hobbs doesn’t bother pinning Jericho here. Hobbs again says “Anybody can get it!” Callis wants Hobbs to hurt Jericho, so Hobbs drives knees into Jericho’s side. Hobbs stalks Jericho to ropes, stands on his neck, but lets off as the ref counts.

Callis asks Jericho how it feels to know the end is coming. Hobbs soaks up the heat, hauls him up again, and SPINEBUSTERS!! Hobbs dares the fans to come get some, then he drags Jericho up again. But Jericho still fires forearms! Fans fire up as Jericho runs to RAM Hobbs! Hobbs stays up so Jericho RAMS him again! But then Hobbs TOSSES Jericho to a corner! Hobbs runs in, but the splash misses! CODE BREAKER!! Cover, TWO!! Hobbs survives and Callis looks concerned. But then Hobbs sits up and grins again. Hobbs stalks Jericho while Callis inches closer to Floyd the Baseball Bat. Hobbs rains down fists and Callis cheers him on!

Fans boo as hard as they can while Hobbs taunts Jericho. Hobbs drags Jericho up, and SPINEBUSTERS again!! That’s six! Hobbs talks trash right in Jericho’s face, then KNEES him in the side! Hobbs paces around Jericho, just toying with him. Hobbs drags Jericho up as fans rally, and Hobbs scoops for- NO, Jericho slips out to RAM Hobbs into a corner! Jericho kicks a leg, then CHOP BLOCKS it! Fans fire up as Jericho gets the legs! Jericho works to turn Hobbs over, but that’s a big man! Even so, Hobbs is put in the WALLS OF JERICHO!! Fans are thunderous as Hobbs endures, but he also powers up and turns back over!

Hobbs grabs Jericho’s neck from below! Hobbs stands, scoops, and hits the WORLD’S STRONGEST SLAM!! Cover, TWO?!?! How is Jericho doing this!? Hobbs rains down fists again and again, then snarls as he drags Jericho up. A scoop and WORLD’S STRONGEST SLAM!! Fans rally for Jericho as hard as they can, but Hobbs has a cocky cover, Hobbs wins!

Winner: “Powerhouse” Will Hobbs, by pinfall

Jericho’s Lionheart held out much longer than anyone expected, but it couldn’t last forever against such a formidable foe. Is Hobbs the key to the Don Callis Family taking over AEW?

Wait, Hobbs isn’t done! He scoops Jericho for a third WORLD’S STRONGEST SLAM!!! Fans boo as hard as they can as Callis and Hobbs grin. If anybody can get it, who will be the next to get it?

 

Adam Cole is still over at Roderick Strong’s house.

They and The Kingdom are in the backyard and Cole says he’s been over at Roddy’s for an entire week. He really has to get his surgery so what else does Roddy need him to do? Could he mow the lawn for him? Mow the lawn? Taven and Bennett should- Nevermind, Cole will get on it. Taven says do it now, but Roddy adds “please.” And so, with one good leg and his “knee rover” scooter, Cole mows the lawn. Roddy shouts over the mower engine that Cole missed a spot. Cole will get it on the return lap! Somehow, someway, Cole finishes and says he’s gotta go to wash up, too. No, Roddy has something for him in the house.

And so, Cole ends up wearing his own “Neck Strong” shirt to match the others. Looking sharp! Thanks… But what is with this giraffe? You mean “Rick Strong,” Roddy’s get-well-soon gift? Clearly, Cole didn’t get Roddy anything, even though Roddy got him that scooter. Besides, the giraffe is the “most neck strongiest animal” in the world. You ever see them fight? They swing their heads around like this. Okay, okay, Cole is sorry he asked. But Cole’s been meaning to ask Roddy, it’s a bit weird there’s no cell service or even a television here. Cole’s been wanting to watch AEW to see what MJF is up to.

Roddy says it is not weird. It keeps them engaged on the present, and TV is the DEVIL! It is the absolute devil! Uh… Okay… But Cole really has to get going so he can get surgery on his foot. Seriously, it is long overdue. He will keep them posted. But Roddy says he needs one more thing. Cole sighs, when is enough going to be enough?

 

AEW International Championship: Rey Fenix w/ Alex Abrahantes VS Orange Cassidy!

The Immortal Firebird took down a battered Jon Moxley to win this title, but Moxley took this title off a battered Freshly Squeezed. Now Cassidy gets his rightful rematch, but will he once again be a great champion in AEW? Or will nothing stop Fenix from blazing his own trail?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see if either man breaks the “curse” on this title!

The bell rings and the two rush in! They fire forearms and CHOPS back and forth! Fans fire up as Cassidy gets the edge and just fires off! Fenix wobbles, Cassidy runs, but Fenix LARIATS! And LARIATS! Cassidy dodges, but Fenix victory rolls and steps through to deadlift, but the back gives up! Cassidy whips, Fenix holds ropes and then sidesteps to CLUB Cassidy, and then Fenix goes right up top! Tightrope PENALTY KICK! Cover, TWO! Cassidy sits up into a SUPERKICK! Fenix goes up another corner, and FROG SPLASHES! Cover, TWO!! Cassidy survives this fast ‘n’ furious start from Fenix and fans rally up.

Fenix drags Cassidy up, reels him in and fireman’s carries, but the back hurts again. Cassidy DROPKICKS Fenix in the back! Fenix tumbles out of the ring, Cassidy goes out after him, and whips Fenix into railing! Cassidy whips Fenix into more railing! Fenix tumbles up and over and fans fire up! Cassidy storms out after Fenix, tosses him back to ringside, then storms after Fenix to POST him! Fenix pushes Cassidy away but Cassidy CHOPS! Cassidy POSTS Fenix again, then refreshes the ring count. Cassidy puts Fenix in, but Fenix baseball slide dropkicks in return! Cassidy stays up, Fenix goes to the apron, but Cassidy FLIPS Fenix! Fenix hits the apron then floor!

Cassidy puts Fenix in while fans rally up. Cassidy climbs a corner, but Fenix SHORYUKENS! Fans rally as Fenix grits his teeth and stands. Fenix tucks Cassidy in, fans duel, but the back won’t let Fenix lift Cassidy. Cassidy BOOTS Fenix, and hits DEEP IMPACT!! Cassidy keeps moving, tilt-o-whirl DDT!! Cover, TWO?!? Fenix survives but Cassidy throws off the elbow pad! Fans fire up as Cassidy locks ‘n’ loads, to ORANGE- SUPERKICK to the arm! Fenix somersaults, but the back stops him short! Cassidy Alabama Lifts, BEACH BREAK!! Cover, TWO!?!? Fenix survives again but Cassidy juts reloads!

Fenix stands, into ORANGE PUNCH!!! And then the MOUSE TRAP! CASSIDY WINS!!

Winner: Orange Cassidy, by pinfall (NEW AEW International Champion)

Justin Roberts adds “once again” to it, because that’s true! Cassidy once again holds gold, and orange confetti flies! Cassidy is almost in awe, but then Penta El Zero Miedo is here. He checks on his brother, but also looks at Cassidy. Rocky Romero, Hook and Best Friends are also there to celebrate with Cassidy, will all these friends of Freshly Squeezed join him in being a great champion?

 

Backstage interview with “Timeless” Toni Storm.

There’s a black ‘n’ white filter as RJ City is with Toni, and she’s critiquing his stance. Tonight, she’s ready for her closeup, but what does that mean exactly? Toni says the problem with tonight is that there has not been enough cinema! So Toni took the liberty of making her own short film, which she has entitled, “Lover’s Lament.” And don’t worry, like all great films, it is a silent picture! Because who needs the noise when we have… the faces?! Play the picture! PLAY IT.

The film roles while we’re picture in picture, so it really will be silent. “Act 1” starts with Toni in her flat, waking up from a nap almost. She sees she’s alone, and is rather flustered. She hurries off screen, only to reappear from the other side. So she keeps going, but keeps going in circles. She settles down, sees the time, and jogs in place? Is this her doing cardio in her apartment? She seems to pantomime getting things out of her way. Is she in a rush to get somewhere? She seems to be imagining herself on a busy city street, calling for a taxi, but no taxi will pick her up. Guess she couldn’t afford to get a green screen for such things?

Anyway, Toni continues her one woman show, showing some leg to get a driver’s attention. Then she apparently just throws the driver out to take over his car! Toni drives herself to wherever she’s going, fixing her hair at the same time, only to swerve in and out of traffic and slam on the brake. Toni arrives at wherever, hurries in, and then barges into a room, exhausted. And scene! AEW goes to break.

 

Wardlow VS Matt Sydal!

The War Dog returned last week and he demolished Griff Garrison with powerbomb after powerbomb! Will he do the same to Third Eye Reborn? Or will that third eye help Sydal see a way out of Wardlow’s World?

The bell rings and Wardlow RAMS Sydal into a corner! And again, and again, and again! Fans cheer on “WARD~LOW! WARD~LOW!” POWERBOMB!! Sydal writhes, but Wardlow hauls him back up! POWERBOMB!! And then another POWERBOMB!! The hattrick isn’t the end of it, Wardlow reels Sydal back in! POWERBOMB!!! The ref calls it there, Wardlow wins!

Winner: Wardlow, by referee stoppage

This time it only took four! And then Wardlow storms off to exit through the crowd, also like last week. Will Wardlow stack more bodies on his way back to prominence?

 

Backstage interview with Chris Jericho.

Renee is with The Ocho and a trainer, hoping for an update after the brutal loss to Hobbs. But Daniel Garcia walks over to ask if Jericho’s alright. Renee isn’t sure, Jericho couldn’t even make it to the trainer’s room. Matthew Menard now asks Garcia what he’s doing. Garcia is being human, he is checking on someone they used to care about. Yeah, Menard gets that, but he’s also had just about enough. They’re better than this, Garcia. They’re better than this. Menard storms off and then Garcia follows. Are the former members of the Jericho Appreciation Society better than this? Or is it Garcia who is seeing things right?

 

(Supposed) AEW World Title Eliminator: Jay White w/ Bullet Club Gold VS Hangman Page!

The Switchblade literally stole Triple B from MJF, and now claims he is the REAL AEW World Champion. As such, he claims this is a World Title Eliminator, where if The Cowboy wins, he gets a title match. Well, obviously it wouldn’t matter either way since MJF is the real champion, but will Hangman at least shut White up with his first win in their personal rivalry? Or will White prove this is still his era?

Well, while White wears the AEW World Championship, his Bang Bang Gang roll up in adult sized Big Wheels. These guys really are just the playground bullies, aren’t they? Anyhow, the bell rings and the BCG are all fired up. White has them calm down and stay on one side of the ring. Then he says it’s been awhile since he and Hangman have seen each other. White reminds Hangman that it’s 3-0, and that zero won’t change. And Hangman is never taking this title from White, either. Hangman says it’s not his to begin with. White SLAPS Hangman! White taunts Hangman, the two circle, and then White bails out.

Fans boo as White gun fingers with his boys, then goes back to the ring. White steps in, ties up with Hangman but Hangman puts him in a corner. The ref counts, Hangman lets off, and White SLAPS him again before bailing out! Fans boo but then Hangman PLANCHAS White! BCG gets mad but the ref tells them to stay back. Juice still says that’s a foul, but Hangman CHOPS White! The ref gets out to tell BCG to behave, and Hangman SMACKS White off the apron as Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Hangman encourages the fans to get louder, then he puts White in the ring. White crawls but Hangman stalks him. hangman CHOPS White in the corner, CHOPS him again, then follows him to another corner, for another CHOP! White CHOPS back! Hangman snarls but White CHOPS again! Hangman still snarls, so White RAMS into him again and again! And then CHOPS! White whips but Hangman reverses to run in. White dodges, Hangman BOOTS him down! White sputters while Hangman stands over him. Hangman storms around, stalks White to the apron, and then drags him up. But White HOTSHOTS back!

White hurries in, but Hangman CHOPS! And CHOPS! White is in the corner, Hangman whips him corner to corner, but White reverses! White runs in but into another BOOT as Dynamite goes to break.

Dynamite returns again White CHOPS! And CHOPS again! White CHOPS again as Hangman is in the corner, then he snapmares into a chinlock! White taunts Hangman but Hangman fights up. White CLUBS Hangman, Hangman ROCKS White, and they go back and forth. White blocks a boot to DRAGON SCREW! White air guitars to mock Hiroshi Tanahashi. White drags Hangman up, suplexes, but Hangman blocks! White keeps trying, but Hangman still resists so White CHOPS! But Hangman suplexes! White slips free but Hangman CHOPS! And ROCKS! And CHOPS! Hangman whips, White reverses but Hangman fireman’s carries to DEATH VALLEY DRIVER!

Both men are down and fans fire up! BCG shout for White to get up, he and Hangman stand, and hangman CHOPS! And ROCKS! And CHOPS again! Hangman whips again, but White reverses to ROCK Hangman! White runs, into a scoop! FALL AWAY SLAM! And Hangman kips up! Hangman hobbles but runs, to SHOOTING STAR! Cover, TWO! White survives and fans rally up as Hangman shakes out his leg. Hangman storms after White, brings him up, and whips. White holds ropes, bails out, and fans boo again. Hangman aims to PLANCHA, but White moves! Hangman wipes out! White hurries up, but Hangman POP-UP APRON POWERBOMBS!!

Hangman hauls White up and into the ring, but White flounders. Hangman hits a POP-UP SITOUT BOMB! Cover, TWO!! White survives and BCG breathes easy again. Hangman rises up, he drags White up, but White leans against him. Fans fire up for “COWBOY SH*T!” as Hangman Alabama Lifts. But White CLUBS the legs to get free! White then has a leg, but Hangman fires forearms! But White CLUBS the leg, then CORNER HALF HATCHES! Hangman slumps to the apron and White goes out after him. BCG rally behind White as he brings Hangman up, and even hooks the leg! APRON KNEE BREAKER!!!

Hangman writhes, BCG mock his pain, but the ref tells them to stay back! The Gunns defend they haven’t moved an inch! Hangman clutches his knee while White refreshes the ring count, and Dynamite goes picture in picture.

White hauls Hangman up to APRON GOURD BUSTER! White pushes Hangman into the ring, covers, TWO!! Hangman hangs tough and White grows frustrated but the fans rally up. White drags Hangman back to the apron, and he SLAMS that leg on the edge! The BCG cheer, the ref reprimands, but White SLAMS the leg again! And then ROCKS Hangman with a right! And then pulls on the leg! The ref reprimands, White lets off, and he shoves Hangman back in. White grabs the legs but Hangman kicks away on him! White GROUND DRAGON SCREWS the bad leg! And then steps through, TRAILER HITCH!!

Hangman endures the inverted figure four, crawls around, and he reaches out! White thrashes as much as he can but Hangman still drags him along to the ROPEBREAK! The ref counts, White lets off at 4, and is beside himself. White storms up, pushes Hangman to a corner, and then hoists him up top. White climbs up behind Hangman, but Hangman resists the lift! They brawl, Dynamite returns to single picture, and White ROCKS Hangman! White is on the outside now, climbs back up, but Hangman throws body shots! Hangman HEADBUTTS White, then goes to the very top! Fans fire up for the SUPER BLOCKBUSTER SUPLEX!!

Both men are down and fans are thunderous! Hangman clutches that bad leg, but “This is Awesome!” as the standing count starts. Both men stir, and Hangman is up first at 6 of 10. White flounders, sputters, reaches out in a daze, but Hangman hobbles over. Hangman brings White up but White claws the eyes! The ref reprimands, White lets off, and fans boo as White scurries away. White comes back, blocks a boot, and hits a KNEE JAMMER! Then clinch and URENAGE! Cover, TWO!! Hangman is still in this but White won’t stop there. White clamps on the sleeper, and he drags Hangman up. Ripcord and CHOP!

Hangman ROCKS White! Then ROLLING ELBOWS! White falls, and Hangman goes to the apron! Fans fire up as Hangman locks ‘n’ loads, but White runs in! White blocks the boot to DRAPING DRAGON SCREW! Hangman writhes, White pushes him to the apron, and then White drags Hangman up the corner. BCG cheer but Hangman fights the clinch! To HOTSHOT White down! White flops to the floor, and Hangman goes around the way. Hangman climbs?! TO ARIHARA MOONSAULT!!! Direct hit but Hangman hobbles again! Hangman puts White back in, fans are fired up for “COWBOY SH*T!”

Hangman locks ‘n’ loads, but White goes to the far side. Hangman grumbles, steps back in, but White storms up. COMPLETE SHOT! And deadlift GERMAN SUPLEX! Bridging cover, TWO!! White holds on, he drags Hangman up again but Hangman ELBOWS free! But White CHOP BLOCKS Hangman down! SNAP SLEEPER SUPLEX!! But Hangman’s up to LARIAT!! Both men are down and the fans are thunderous again! Hangman drags himself to the apron and fans rally as he stands up. BUCKSHOT- NO, the bad leg!! But then Hangman stops the Bladerunner to DEADEYE!! But BCG bark and shout at the ropes like the rabid animals they are!

The ref tells BCG to stop, Hangman gets the cover, TWO!?!?! That delay must’ve saved White there! The ref argues with Juice & The Gunns, but NANA is here?! CROWN- NO!! Hangman stops that and CHOKES Nana! But White rolls Hangman up with tights! WHITE WINS!

Winner: Jay White, by pinfall

Hangman screwed Swerve out of his title shot, so Swerve had Nana screw Hangman out of his! Well again, Hangman wasn’t really going to get a shot since White isn’t the real champion, but it’s the principle. Nana runs for the hills, will Hangman beat him down for this? As for BCG, they celebrate, but wait! Here comes the TRUE AEW World Champion! Maxwell Jacob Friedman storms out, has the music cut already, and he paces on stage. MJF tells the SOB White to look at him! White wanted a title match under the bright lights at Full Gear? Well he’s got it! You’re welcome! Now give MJF back Triple B!

Fans cheer but White has a mic now. Fans chant “GIVE IT BACK! GIVE IT BACK!” White says okay, hold on. He just took it to 4-0 against Hangman, please repeat that. No, not MJF. White wants to hear from J A Y! But hey, hey, shoosh. Fans boo but White says hey now! Hey! “Your Scumbag wants the Triple B? You want The Bang Bang Belt?” Fans tell J A Y to S T F U! White shrugs and says as he was gonna say yes to it, but now the answer’s no because they’re so rude. Fans boo but White says blame the fans. MJF says okay, okay, okay. He’ll be the bigger man here. MJF knows White better than White knows himself, because MJF was White.

In fact, in many ways, MJF isn’t still that far off, but Lord knows he is trying. And MJF knows that White doesn’t give a damn about anybody else. White will do whatever it takes to get what he wants. White will use people, abuse people, and manipulate people. In fact, those guys standing around him that he claims to care about? Deep down, White and MJF both know White could give LESS than a sh*t about any of them! White is just using them to get where he wants to be, and MJF would know because that is out of the MJF playbook. But unlike White, MJF wakes up and does the hard thing. He wakes up and tries to be a better man. That IS hard, and MJF hates it!

But deep down, MJF knows it is worth it, because for the first time in his life, he doesn’t look in the mirror and punch out the reflection. For the first time in his life, he has earned the people’s respect! Fans cheer that! MJF tells White that there are two things in this life he cares about: Adam Cole who is out injured and needs two surgeries, that is MJF’s cross to bear, as if this wasn’t enough; and then there is the title White holds, calling it just a belt. “My friend, that ain’t just a belt. That is my livelihood! That is my legacy!” Fans cheer that! MJF says when you win the AEW World title, that makes you THE BEST in the GADDAMN World!!

Now White, MJF hates your guts. In fact, if the BCG wasn’t out there with him, MJF would’ve broken White’s legs and his neck, and just taken back what is MJF’s. However, MJF doesn’t let that cloud his judgment. He knows how talented White is, that is next level and elite. Some day, White will join the exclusive club of truly being an AEW World Champion. However, that day is NOT today. Understand? So MJF will ask White to do the hard thing for once in his life, do what MJF has done, and dig deep to be a man, show some dignity and respect. Not to MJF, but to the sport, to AEW and to the FANS! Give MJF back what he has not yet earned!

The BCG laughs at MJF and White says “Oh, I haven’t earned this, huh?” MJF just wants it back? How is that earning? But at least he asked face to face rather than jumping him from behind in that cute little devil mask. But MJF is just asking! Does MJF not know how this works? MJF just said, he has to earn it! He has to win it! In a match! And they have a match, November 18th, Kia Forum, Full Gear! So be patient, MJF will get his chance and fail. But Max, White says if MJF can’t wait, then come on down and take the belt. But something tells White that with the “five” of them (he’s including Cardblade) and no goon squad for MJF, he won’t come on down.

But hey, if MJF can find three people that can even just tolerate him, they can have a 4v4 with the Bang Bang Gang! And if MJF’s team wins, then he can get the Bang Bang Belt back. Juice says before Friedman leaves, Juice heard through the grapevine that next week, there is a Dynamite Diamond Dozen Battle Royal, for a shot at that stupid ring MJF still cares about! So throw Juice’s name into that hat, he’ll win the match, and then he’ll whoop MJF’s ass to take that ring! Then BCG will have everything that idiot loves! And when that’s done, Juice will give MJF a “little present,” something he’ll really like! Juice even has it wrapped!

Juice brings out a roll of quarters with MJF’s name on it. Ten dollars worth, and do you know what he does with it? He breaks jaws! So after they ruin MJF’s career and his life, Juice will put these quarters in his fist- MJF shouts that if Juice comes near him with those quarters, he will end Juice’s life, “you PIECE OF SH*T!” Juice’s favorite trump card being the same thing MJF’s childhood bullying trauma stems from, clearly Juice doesn’t care what it triggers in MJF. White says this goes to everyone. If you ain’t done with this, they’ve got two words for ya: GUNS UP! But with the challenge put to MJF, who will join him in the fight against the Bang Bang Gang?

 

Toni Storm presents: Lover’s Lament, Act 2.

Again in picture-in-picture, Toni’s character has revived and is organizing her things. She seems to rehearse, or perhaps pose for pictures. Hard to say without even silence film subtitles. Storm throws off her jacket to then kiss whoever this other person is…? But then they make the wrong move and she slaps them around, and even HEADBUTTS them! Ow that one hurt. Storm calms down again, talks it out with this lover, then comes closer to the camera as she says she loves this person. She kisses them more, but someone says she’s needed on set. That actually has subtitles, too. Storm hurries out of her “dressing room,” and scene as AEW goes to break.

 

AEW Women’s World Championship: Saraya VS Hikaru Shida!

The Knight has had this title since All In London and her victorious homecoming, but now she faces the Shining Samurai! Shida is chasing history with the chance to become a THREE-TIME Women’s World Champion, will she take Title Tuesday to new heights? Or will this still be Saraya’s title and still her house?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see who is truly the strongest warrior!

The bell rings and fans rally up as the two step up. Saraya eggs Shida on, pushes her, and calls her a loser. But Shida fires off forearms! Saraya gets in the ropes, the ref backs Shida off, but Saraya kicks low. Saraya bumps Shida off buckles, then talks more trash before she fires forearm after forearm! The ref counts, Saraya lets off with a roar, but Shida turns things around to fire off on Saraya! Fans fire up, Shida stomps Saraya and then whips corner to corner. Saraya reverses, runs in, but Shida sends her into buckles. Shida runs in to KNEE Saraya! Fans fire up and Shida climbs up. Saraya slips away, though, thinking she’s clever, only to turn around into an ENZIGURI!

Saraya tumbles out of the ring, calls for Ruby but she forgets, there’s a ringside ban on Ruby! Saraya is upset and storms around on the outside. Shida waits, but Saraya returns at 5 of 10, only for Shida to jump on her! Shida rains down forearms, Saraya turns it around to throw forearms of her own, but Shida turns it back around! Fans fire up as Shida rains down shots, but then Saraya gives them back! Saraya howls, the ref reprimands about closed fists, but Saraya tells the fans to shut up. Saraya rushes in but Shida gets around to CLUB her and torture rack! Saraya endures, then Shida THROWS Saraya down!

Shida drags Saraya to the apron and runs in, to KNEE LIFT! Fans fire up with Shida but someone creeps up in a mask and sweater! They have a spray paint can! Shida grabs that hand, and unmasks the person! It’s RUBY! Fans boo and Ruby apologizes, but Shida SPRAYS Ruby!! Ruby’s all green like her hair now! Ruby scurries away, and Storm runs out to CLOBBER her with a shoe! Fans cheer as Toni slaps and smacks Ruby around, then DUMPS her over the railing! Toni chases Ruby off into the night, still using the shoes! But then Saraya RAMS Shida into barriers! The fans are fired up for all the madness as Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Saraya RAMS Shida into more railing, then she storms up to stomp Shida. The ref reprimands and counts, Saraya lets off and drags Shida up to RAM into steel steps! Shida snarls and grits her teeth but Saraya brings her around to snap suplex to the floor! Shida writhes and Saraya soaks up the heat as she stalks Shida. Saraya drags Shida up, RAMS her into more railing, and then snatches a Shida fan sign to rip it up and throw it away! Saraya refreshes the ring count, then smiles as she stalks Shida. Shida hits back but Saraya CLUBS Shida down. Saraya puts Shida in, stalks her, and then drags her into the ropes.

Saraya steps out onto the apron, to fire KNEE after KNEE into Shida! Saraya howls, shoves Shida in, and then frolics around to soak up the heat. Saraya has the arms, and she stands on Shida’s hair to PULL! The ref reprimands, Saraya lets off, and Shida staggers to ropes. Saraya pulls Shida against the ropes in a motorcycle stretch, but lets off at 4. Saraya brings Shida around to ROCK her! And again! Shida hits back as Dynamite returns to single picture, and fans rally as they go back and forth! Saraya roars, but Shida fires off a flurry! Shida ROCKS Saraya, but Saraya kicks low! Saraya runs, Shida dodges and KNEES Saraya down!

Saraya flounders to a corner, Shida climbs up on her, and fans fire up as Shida rains down fists! Shida goes all the way to TEN, then goes past it for a total of TWENTY! Fans cheer more as Shida then kicks Saraya, aims and MISSILE DROPKICKS! Cover, TWO! Saraya hangs tough and bails out but Shida goes up the corner again. Shida drags Saraya up to the top! Fans rally, but Saraya throws hands! Saraya hops down to CLUB Shida, then pulls on an arm! Shida stops Saraya once but Saraya ARM-DRAGS Shida to the apron! Shida then falls to the floor, and Saraya has a sinister look on her face.

Shida drags herself up to the apron, Saraya runs in but Shida ROCKS Her first! And then APRON GERMAN SUPLEXES!! Saraya falls to the floor, and Shida hits a METEORA!! Shida puts Saraya in, runs, TAMASHII!! Cover, TWO!!! Saraya survives but Shida roars! Shida takes aim, Saraya sits up, KATA- NO! Saraya blocks, trips Shida, and then steps through! But Shida BOOTS her away! And QUESTION MARK KICKS! Saraya wobbles, Shida climbs back up, and leaps, into a BOOT! KNIGHT CAP!! Cover, TWO?!?! Shida survives and shocks everyone! The fans are thunderous but Saraya is seething!

Saraya shakes her head, stomps Shida, then grabs both kendo stick and spray paint! Saraya hides the can and wields the kendo stick, but the ref takes the stick! Saraya pulls out the spray paint to SPRAY Shida!! And then KNIGHT CAP!!! Cover, TWO?!?!? Shida survives again?!? Fans are thunderous and Saraya is pulling at her hair! Saraya argues with the ref but the count was fair! Fans chant “HOLY SHIDA!” as Shida sputters to life. Saraya says she just needs one more time. Saraya drags Shida up again, reels her in, but Shida fights the lift to FALCON ARROW!! Cover, TWO!! And Saraya has it! TWO, Shida has it back!! SHIDA WINS!!

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

Saraya is most shocked of all, because now Shida has made history! THREE-TIME SHIDA reigns! The red and white confetti flies, and Saraya is distraught! Will the third time be the charm for the Shining Samurai?

 

BREAKING NEWS on Jericho’s condition.

Given all the damage done to Jericho’s ribs by Powerhouse Hobbs, Jericho has been taken to a hospital to determine the full extent of the injuries with X-rays. Has Don Callis and his family already won the war with Jericho?

 

BREAKING NEWS for Christmas!

One MILLION dollars worth of AEW toys will be donated to Toys For Tots!

 

BREAKING NEWS for Rampage!

We already know of The Gates of Agony VS Blackpool Combat Club given their interaction last Saturday, but now add Skye Blue VS Emi Sakura; The Hardy Party VS Daniel Garcia, Matthew Menard & Angelo Parker in a rematch from Collision; and Jay Lethal VS Trent Beretta, Team Triple J and Best Friends at ringside!

 

BREAKING NEWS for Collision!

Firstly, it will have a special earlier start time of 7 PM Eastern! And as we learned, it will be Christian Cage VS Bryan Danielson for the TNT Championship! Will Captain Charisma still be the Face of TNT? Or will he fail to slay the American Dragon?

 

Don Callis speaks.

“Another abomination, another travesty perpetrated on the Don Callis Family, we made history tonight and I requested 10 minutes to talk about it, and I was told I don’t have any time. But don’t worry, I’ve got a back-up plan.” So as Dynamite goes picture in picture, Callis uses the Sammy Guevara cue card technique! Callis adds some red ink to what he’s got, and reveals it is a sketch of his hand JABBING the screwdriver into Kota Ibushi, with the red ink of course being blood, but also the word “KOROSU” (Japanese for “Kill”). Callis and his Alpha nod, then Konosuke Takeshita holds up his cards.

“Hobbs DESTROYED Kenny Omega. He then DESTROYED Chris Jericho.” Callis makes sure to underline “destroyed.” “The Don Callis family sis here to exact REVENGE. And… that revenge is far from over. Sammy Guevara will be back. You will PAY for what you did to him.” Konosuke then rips that card, and smiles as Callis whispers something to him. When and where will this even stronger, even meaner Don Callis Family finish their revenge?

 

Backstage interview with MJF.

Renee says she was trying to catch up to him all night, not an easy man to find today. A lot is going on for him, from White stealing Triple B to Juice’s words about quarters. What is going on with MJF right now? MJF says the old him would be flipping out on her right now. But he’s just not in the mood to be interviewed. He wants to call Cole and get some advice. Renee says okay, and takes her leave. MJF gets his phone out and hopes Cole will pick up. The phone rings, and Cole picks up! Can he hear MJF? Yeah, man, what’s going on? Where the hell has Cole been? MJF’s been trying to reach him for days!

Cole apologizes, he’s still stuck at Roddy’s. Roddy needs more help because he’s injured. MJF rolls his eyes and says HE needs Cole’s help. MJF is being attacked left and right by Bullet Club Gold, they stole Triple B, apparently Samoa Joe wants another shot, and Juice opened up some old wounds. Cole asks if MJF can hear him but the signal is going out. Roddy’s house is in the middle of nowhere. The call drops! But then The Acclaimed walk over. Caster says they couldn’t help but hear all that. And there was also that challenge about White & BCG VS MJF and three others, so if MJF hasn’t found anyway, maybe they could team with him?

MJF grabs his ROH World Tag title and walks away. Caster wants to follow MJF but Billy has him hold on. One, when did Caster decide he can just offer up the Acclaimed’s services? Right, sorry. And two, what is Caster’s infatuation with that yahoo? Bowens agrees, MJF is sus, dude. Caster wants them to understand, they started together, Caster’s known MJF for 10 years now, and he’s a friend. MJF doesn’t have many friends but Caster always thought of him as a friend, so… Maybe he could use their help? Plus, Caster likes when MJF plays hard to get. Right? Right? Bowens & Billy sigh, but MJF has until Saturday. Will he cave and call upon The Acclaimed?

 

Adam “Edge” Copeland VS Luchasaurus w/ Christian Cage!

The Rated R Superstar has his first match in AEW, and it is against the Right Hand of Destruction of the man he thought was his friend. Captain Charisma told Edge to GFY, and he also opened tonight to explain why, which is why he has a mic now. Fans boo but Christian tells Kansas City to keep the noise down while he conducts business. Fans boo more but Christian says, “You should be happy that you have a champion that you can be proud of in your midst. Because unlike your Kansas City Chiefs, I don’t need extra help to get my wins.” Now it was apparent last week he left our jaws on the floor after what he said to the Rated R Superstar.

Christian also knew it from how he left Edge with his junk in his hands and that stupid look on his face that he’s seen a million times before. So Christian found it interesting that Edge said Luchasaurus & Nick Wayne were gonna turn on Christian when they got all they needed, based on Edge’s own experience. The difference between them is, Christian didn’t take some ragtag group, dress them up like it’s Halloween and convince them they’re tough guys. Edge tried to be their leader, Christian is their father! And Christian laughed when Edge came out with his rara speech of getting the team back together to have all these dream matches to finish their careers together.

It’s funny because that same sentiment wasn’t there a few years ago. Fans chant “YOU SUCK! YOU SUCK!” but Christian says the sentiment wasn’t there when he was being held back, even though he was clearly the more talented of the two while Edge got pushed to the moon. Why didn’t Edge wanna get back together then? Where were the tag team aspirations then, huh? And how times have changed. As Edge is on a downward slope, Christian’s climbing to new heights, as he is the hottest star and most talked about star in this business! Edge came here under the guise of wanting to get the team back together, when the truth is, Edge NEEDS Christian, but Christian does NOT need Edge.

But Christian won’t blame Edge for being a fan. Christian has lots of fans all over the world. In fact, Beth is a huge fan! Fans boo Christian bringing the wife into it. But Christian says he’s getting bored, so he’ll let Luchasaurus end Edge once and for all. And take solace in the fact that Edge’s little girls will be well taken care of. Beth, Christian knows you’re watching. Put some clean sheets on the bed, your new father is coming home! But here comes Edge! He rushes down the ramp, but Christian bails! And then Nick Wayne crawls in to anchor Edge!? Luchasaurus BOOTS Edge, and EXTINCTION LEVEL LARIAT!!

Fans boo as Christian’s crew gets the jump on Edge and the ref has to hurry in. The ref checks with Edge given that neck being a well-known injury. Edge is conscious but dazed, and the fans rally up to give Edge the strength! Edge feels that energy, he throws the jacket off and roars to his feet! The bell rings, and Luchasaurus SPLASHES! Luchasaurus fires off shots, then short arm LARIATS! And then scoops to TOMBSTONE PILEDRIVER!! Cover, TWO?!? Edge survives but Christian watches from the ramp. Luchasaurus looms over Edge and then DECKS him! Luchasaurus brings Edge up to CLUB him back down!

Fans taunt “PERSIAN CAT!” Nick Wayne but Luchasaurus RAMS Edge into a corner. Edge falls over, but Luchasaurus hauls him back up. Luchasaurus CHOKES Edge but fans rally up. The ref counts, Luchasaurus lets off, to then dig his boots in! The ref counts again, Luchasaurus lets off again, and Edge sputters. Luchasaurus hauls Edge up to whip corner to corner hard and Edge falls! The ref tells Nick to stay back, and Luchasaurus drags Edge up. Luchasaurus scoops to SLAM Edge, and Edge writhes as Luchasaurus looms over him. Luchasaurus stands on Edge’s face, steps away, then drags Edge up again.

Luchasaurus UPPERCUTS Edge, but Edge comes back to ROCK Luchasaurus! Fans fire up but Luchasaurus ROCKS Edge! Edge ROCKS Luchasaurus! Both men staggers, Edge runs to ROCK Luchasaurus! But then Luchasaurus TOSSES Edge to fire off fast hands! Edge leans against ropes, Luchasaurus storms around, and then drags Edge back up for a deadlift suplex! Edge flops to ropes but Luchasaurus storms over. Luchasaurus drags Edge up to CLUB him down! Fans rally but Luchasaurus CLUBS away on Edge’s chest! Edge falls over again and fans boo, but Luchasaurus drags Edge up. Christian is watching but still seems tense.

Edge fires forearms! And more forearms! And again and again and again! Edge runs, but into a BOOT! Edge flops out of the ring and Luchasaurus roars as Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Christian takes a deep breath as he watches Luchasaurus bring Edge up to RAM into railing! Nick is also enjoying this as Luchasaurus stands Edge up to CHOP back down! Edge sputters, Luchasaurus refreshes the ring count, and then he CLUBS Edge down! Luchasaurus tosses Edge into the ring, looms over him, and then stands him up to wrench and back suplex! Christian nods, this is going to plan as Luchasaurus stands on Edge’s face. Luchasaurus drags Edge into a neck wrench! Edge endures and pries at Luchasaurus’ hands. Fans rally up, Edge bends the fingers and Luchasaurus lets go! But then Luchasaurus KICKS Edge in the side!

Luchasaurus storms up to CHOKE Edge on ropes! Luchasaurus lets off, Edge sputters, but then Luchasaurus puts Edge on ropes to CHOKE him again! The ref counts, Luchasaurus lets off again, to then dig his boot in! The ref reprimands, Luchasaurus lets off, and Dynamite returns to single picture. Luchasaurus bends Edge against ropes, but lets off as the ref counts, sending Edge tumbling out of the ring. Nick sneaks up on Edge, to POST him! Fans boo but the Persian Cat gets away with that. Christian is proud of Nick, though, and Luchasaurus goes out to position the steel steps. Luchasaurus puts them on their side, then drags them around the way.

Edge is in the ring, but Luchasaurus goes to the apron. Edge stands, Luchasaurus choke grips! But Edge fights free! Fans fire up as Edge dropkicks the legs out! Luchasaurus falls to the floor, Edge leaps, FLYING DDT!! Both men are down and fans fire up again! Luchasaurus crawls away but Edge pursues. Edge climbs up the corner, fans fire up, and Edge CROSSBODIES to the back! Fans fire up again as both men are down in the ring! Christian is concerned now and a standing count starts. Both men rise at 4 of 10 and Edge fires shots! Luchasaurus swings, misses, and Edge ROCKS Luchasaurus! Edge runs, into a HEADBUTT!

Luchasaurus choke grips again but Edge goes for the arm! Luchasaurus powers out to choke grip, but Edge powers out of that to hit an IMPALER!! Fans are thunderous again as Edge pushes Luchasaurus to a cover, TWO!!! Luchasaurus survives and Christian breathes again. But Edge hobbles up, goes to a corner and climbs! But Luchasaurus BOOTS Edge right down! Fans boo but Luchasaurus climbs the corner and he drags Edge up to join him. Except Luchasaurus moves to aim for the steel steps! Edge fights for his life with body shots, then he turns things around on Luchasaurus!

Edge fires off CLUBBING shots, and fans count all the way to TEN! Edge then stands on the very top, brings Luchasaurus up with him, SUPER DUPER PLEX!! Both men are down and the fans fire up! Christian is freaking out as the standing count climbs! Both men sit up at 5 of 10, and fans are thunderous as both men stand at 8! Edge aims from a corner, but Christian storms back to ringside! That distracts so Nick can wedge a chair into a corner! Edge runs in, Luchasaurus hurdles and Edge hits chair!! Then JURASSIC CHOKE SLAM!!! Cover, TWO?!?!? Edge survives and no one can believe it!!

Luchasaurus snarls, prepares his hand again, but Edge dodges! DOUBLE BOOTS take both men down! Fans rally up for Edge again as he rises. Luchasaurus goes to the apron, Edge BACKHANDS him! And haymakers! And backhands! Edge CLUBS the arms, runs, but Luchasaurus catches him! And drags him out to the apron! But Edge hits an EDGE-O-MATIC on the apron! Luchasaurus hobbles away, Edge gets back up, and Edge runs in to jump off the steps, FLYING SPEAR!!! Fans are thunderous and Christian can’t believe it! Edge rises, puts Luchasaurus into the ring, and he resets in the corner!

But Nick distracts the ref! Christian rushes down, but Edge blocks the belt shot, to BELT SHOT Luchasaurus! Then he tosses the belt back to Christian, and he CLOBBERS Nick! The ref sees Christian and asks what he’s doing here! Christian defends his innocence, but Luchasaurus turns around and sees Christian with the blet! Luchasaurus thinks Christian hit him from behind, but Christian defends he’d never do that! Luchasaurus turns around, into a SPEAR!! Cover, EDGE WINS!!

Winner: Adam Copeland, by pinfall

The Rated R Superstar got the better of Christian, but Nick CHOP BLOCKS Edge! Fans boo as Nick stomps away on Edge, and then Luchasaurus joins in! But BRYAN DANIELSON CLOBBERS Christian! And he fires off on Nick & Luchasaurus! Luchasaurus BOOTS Bryan! Christian gets in to stomp Bryan, but here comes the BCC! Yuta & Claudio go after Christian, Nick and Luchasaurus, it’s a brawl! Christian CHOKES Bryan but Claudio CLOBBERS Christian! And now the Gates of Agony rush out to go after Claudio & Yuta! Christian gets to CHOKE Bryan more, but Bryan shifts to get an arm! Christian fights off the LeBell Lock!

But wait, here comes Hangman! He and Swerve brawl, Claudio helps out but Liona goes after Claudio! Yuta RAMS Kaun into railing! Claudio RAMS Liona into railing! Bryan drags Christian down into the LEBELL LOCK!! Nick gets in but Edge SPEARS him down!!! Fans are thunderous as Christian taps to Bryan! Bryan doesn’t let go, and Christian starts fading!! Will this be how it happens on Collision? Or will it somehow end up even more chaotic?


My Thoughts:

A great Dynamite tonight, and was on Tuesday instead of Wednesday because of MLB. And the reason it was a total of 2 hours and 40 minutes was AEW was countering the counter programming NXT was doing. On the surface, that’s cool of AEW to do to give their fans more to see than NXT was giving their fans. But when you look at Tony Khan getting all uppity on social media, you see it was really more him being spoiled on his birthday. That aside, great surprises I did not see coming. Cassidy subbing in for Moxley who is legit hurt with his concussion was a good move, and we got a great International Championship match. Cassidy winning the title back was surprise number one.

Surprise number two was Shida winning the AEW Women’s World title back and becoming the historic three-time champion. If nothing else, this move made it worth calling this “Title Tuesday.” And great stuff in Toni stopping Ruby to add to her already pretty hilarious night. That “Lover’s Lament” one woman show was perfectly weird, and it made for great picture in picture material since we never hear the AEW feed anyway. Also, very clever for Don Callis to do the Sammy Guevara PIP cue card thing. But back to Shida, great honor for her to make history, but it feels like it just sets up a rematch with Saraya at Full Gear in a month. Hopefully Shida retains, though, as there’s a level of hot-potato-ing the title that gets a bit awkward.

The Buy-In was good stuff, though not really needed. Of course Eddie retained both titles but he still had an epic match with Suzuki. And of course Triple J is watching because of the story they’re building with Eddie. Great promo from Christian to open the main show and take credit for the commercial free half hour. Awesome match from Bryan VS Swerve, and I figured Bryan would win since Swerve still has a feud with Hangman. Clever move for Hangman to stop Swerve from cheating. And of course, Swerve responds in kind as Hangman takes on White. That was also an awesome match but Swerve screws Hangman so that we’ll get their rematch at Full Gear.

MJF and BCG have a great promo, and I actually appreciate White being perhaps delusional that he is the champ and MJF has to earn things from him. And wow, controversial though logical use of the coincidence that Juice uses quarters in his loaded punch and MJF’s bully story. Cole, Roddy & The Kingdom have another good vignette but not as funny as the previous. I do appreciate they explained the giraffe and I should’ve known it was about neck fighting. MJF also had a good segment with Cole on the phone and then Acclaimed in person. I had a feeling Caster was gonna offer that team-up, and also a logical move for Bowens & Billy to be against it given it’s MJF, almost in a parallel to how Roddy wanted Cole to be wary. But surely, something happens and Acclaimed all help MJF after all.

Wardlow walloping Sydal as brutally as he did Griff was a slight surprise, too, and Wardlow just storming off is an interesting move. Does he just not even wanna be interviewed to explain? Hobbs VS Jericho was really good and they really had Hobbs just go to town. I liked Garcia wanting to check on Jericho and how that clashes with the rest of the X-JAS. Garcia might be the one to break away from the X-JAS and to team with Jericho so that Jericho’s side can have another trio ready to face Sammy, Konosuke and now Hobbs, probably for Full Gear. Samoa Joe had another good promo, but as I said before, he is still ROH World TV Champion, have him focus on that and be on ROH TV on Thursdays! It’s why Dalton Castle had his own “I’m stressed” promo, cuz he can’t get at Joe if Joe’s not there!

And then for not just Edge’s first match in AEW but his first match back in a few months, this was really good stuff. Of course Nick and Christian try to help Luchasaurus but I love how Edge turned that around on them. And then great chaotic brawl to finish, which is why they needed to tell us about the overrun in advance. Yeah, TK did that, and I sighed and facepalmed at it, but whatever, here it was and it was fun. It adds some good heat to Claudio & Yuta VS Gates of Agony, and we might even see a rematch for the ROH World Six Man titles stem from this leading into Hangman VS Swerve at Full Gear.

My Score: 8.9/10

Just last night on Rampage, The Spanish God called out the Don Callis Family, and then got jumped by the Don Callis Family! Callis and the rest of the family has been banned from ringside, as has Chris Jericho, this must be settled between Sammy and Hobbs! Will there be anything left of Sammy to return home to his wife and daughter? Or will The Book of Hobbs call for no mercy and no remains?

The moment Hobbs hops off the corner, Sammy JUMP KNEES! The bell rings, Sammy runs up to JUMP KNEE again! Hobbs staggers around, but he catches Sammy to TOSS him to a corner!

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!

Sammy then goes looking under the ring, and he brings out a table! The fans fire up as Sammy sets the table up nearby. Sammy has security move aside, so he can slide that chair off the table and into Hobbs! Sammy then adds another table! If one is good, more must be better! The fans fire up with Sammy as he has those side by side. Hobbs goes to the apron but Sammy climbs up. Sammy aims and leaps, but Hobbs catches him again!! 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!

Sammy survives and now Hobbs is furious! Hobbs runs to BOOT Sammy down! Hobbs goes out while Sammy flops off the apron. Hobbs looks around under the ring, and he brings out a fourth table! The fans fire up as Hobbs brings this one to the ramp side. Hobbs sets that up, stomps Sammy to keep him down, then he goes to fetch a fifth table! 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! Sammy fires up again while Hobbs staggers around. Sammy chugs a fan’s beer, then SMASHES Hobbs with the bottle!

The fans fire up as Hobbs ends up on the tables! The fans give Sammy another beer, to SMASH it on Hobbs again! Sammy then goes looking under the ring, and he brings out a LADDER! 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! Sammy moves table number three outta the way so he can stand his ladder up. And it’s a big ladder! Fans chant “Please Don’t Die!” because this is extra crazy even for Sammy! Sammy climbs to the second highest rung, takes aim, and shoutout to Jeff Hardy! SUPER SWANTON BOMB through the tables!!!

The fans lose their minds all over again as the ref checks Sammy.

Sammy is stuck on the top rope and Hobbs snarls as he storms up after him! Hobbs brings Sammy up for the scoop! WORLD’S STRONGEST SLAM THROUGH THE TABLE!! Cover, Hobbs wins!!

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!

Lee waistlocks, Cash switches, but Lee switches! Cash bucks the O’Conner but Lee distracts the ref so Shane can DECK Cash! Lee rolls Cash up, TWO!!! Cash survives but Lee brings him up. Lee whips Cash at the corner but Cash BLASTS Shane! Cash goes up and over Lee, then does it again! Tag to Dax, sunset flip leads to the pop-up, BULLDOG BOMB! Cover, FTR wins!

Winners: FTR, by pinfall

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

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

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

 

Thunder Rosa VS Ladybird Monroe!

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

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

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

Winner: Thunder Rosa, by pinfall

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

 

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

Bronson goes up the ropes to HIP DROP Colten! Tag to Jameson, he HIP DROPS Colten! Boulder tags in, he stomps around and the fans fire up. Boulder brings Colten up, to suplex high and hard! Boulder then says bang bang to mock BBSG. Boulder shakes those hips, tags Jameson, and they double whip Colten, only for Colten to BLAST Bronson! Colten DUMPS Boulder, ELBOWS Jameson, hot tag to White! White may have sniped that one, but he CHOPS Jameson down! And he gets Bronson by his hair, and CHOPS! White CHOPS Jameson, fires off JABS then CHOPS! JAB, CHOP, repeat! CHOP, CHOP, and CHOP!

Bronson runs in but White sends him into Jameson! White then CHOPS Bronson! White whips Bronson but Bronson reverses. Bronson runs up but White dumps him out hard! Jameson runs up but into an URENAGE Cover, Boulder runs in, but White moves! The SPLASH hits Jameson! Boulder freaks out, and White kicks low! Billy gets in, FAMOUSER! The fans fire up as that sends Boulder tumbling! White CHOPS Bronson, Colten CLOBBERS him out of the ring! White shrugs and gets Jameson for the BLADERUNNER!! Cover, BBSG wins!

Winners: Jay White, Colten Gunn & Billy Gunn, by pinfall

It was a rocky start but a smooth finish as the hybrid trio works out! Will this super group be untouchable all the way to the top of the mountain?

 

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?

 

Bryan Keith VS Malakai Black!

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 bell rings and the fans rally up. Keith stares Malakai down, and both men hear the fans cheering. Malakai and Keith circle, tie up, and Keith wrenches and wristlocks. Malakai moves around, spins through and wrenches to snapmare. Malakai headlocks but Keith slips out to wrench and wristlock again. Malakai snapmares and chinlocks but Keith wrenches out again. Malakai breaks free, tripos Keith but Keith kicks him away. Malakai storms back up but Keith trips him to cover, ONE! The two stand off and the fans rally up. Malakai and Keith reset and circle again. They tie up, Malakai ROCKS Keith, then ROCKS him again!

Malakai whips, Keith reverses but things speed up. Keith BOOTS Malakai down! Fans fire up with Keith and he storms up on Malakai. Keith ROCKS and CHOPS on repeat! Malakai KNEES Keith away, but Keith KICKS in return! And KICKS! Malakai KICKS back! Keith steps over, snap suplexes, and he then drops a knee! Cover, TWO!

And LARIATS! The fans rally as Keith LARIATS again! Keith scoops for the EXPLODER! Malakai slowly rises and the fans fire up! Keith fireman’s carries, USHIGOROSHI! Cover, TWO!

The knee still holds Keith back so Malakai CLUBS Keith on the back.

Malakai waistlocks but Keith elbows free, and uses ropes for the TORNADO DDT! Both men are down and the fans fire up! A standing count starts but the fans rally up. Both men are down at 5 of 10, but they stir at 6. Keith and Malakai both sit up like a Deadman! Then they stand and fire forearms again!

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?

The bell rings and the two circle. Deeb and Frost tie up, and Deeb wrenches to a wristlock. Frost trips Deeb, knuckle lock covers, ONE as Deeb gets a shoulder up. Frost pushes the arm down, ONE as Deeb gets the other arm up. Frost tries again, ONE as Deeb bridges! They stand, go around, and Deeb straitjackets Frost. Frost powers out to straitjacket Deeb in return. Deeb wriggles and wiggles through the straitjacket to put it back on Frost. Deeb brings Frost to her knees, then digs her knees into Frost! Frost endures as she’s bent back, so Deeb tosses her away! The fans cheer and Deeb flexes.

Deeb and Frost tie up, Frost headlocks, but Deeb wrenches out to arm-drag Frost away. Frost goes to a corner, Deeb runs up but Frost BOOTS her! Frost cartwheels over then basement dropkicks Deeb down! Frost whips, Deeb reverses but Frost goes up and over and handsprings away! Fans fire up but Deeb runs Frost over! Deeb says this is HER ring. Things speed up, Deeb ducks ‘n’ dodges and arm-drags into a takedown, spinning toehold into a TRAILER HITCH! Frost endures, Deeb pulls on the foot, but Frost has the ROPEBREAK! Deeb lets go quick and fans cheer her own as Collision goes picture in picture.

Deeb waits on Frost while she’s on the apron. Frost shakes out the legs, steps back in, and then Deeb runs up! Frost puts Deeb in a corner, CHOPS her, but Deeb CHOPS back! 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. Deeb kicks low, UPPERCUTS and Frost staggers back. Deeb UPPERCUTS again, swings but Frost dodges the chop to stomp and UPPERCUT! Frost snapmares Deeb and clamps on a headlock. Deeb endures and fights around. Frost facelocks, Deeb still fights up, but Frost throws Deeb down! Cover, TWO!

Deeb goes to ropes but Frost storms over. Frost bumps Deeb off buckles, goes corner to corner and RAMS into Deeb! Then she handsprings and RAMS in again! Frost lets off to then bring Deeb up and CHOP! Deeb sputters while Collision goes to break.

Collision returns and Frost has Deeb in another clinch. Deeb powers up and out, drops down then blocks a kick to DRAGON SCREW! Frost writhes and Deeb pounds the mat. The fans rally, Deeb winds up and CLOBBERS Frost! And CLOBBERS her! Deeb JABS, JABS and JABS! Deeb winds up, the fans fire up, but Frost kicks low!

Deeb staggers, Frost runs up, cartwheel and spin, CHILLA DRILLA! Cover, TWO!! Deeb survives and Frost is furious! Frost aims, spins, but Deeb ducks the roundhouse to ripcord and ELBOW! Then wrench, hammerlock, and PEPSI TWIST! The fans fire up and Deeb gets the leg! HALF CRAB! Frost endures, but taps! Deeb wins!

Winner: Serena Deeb, by submission

The Professor didn’t even need the full Serenity Lock, she’s just that good. Deeb gets the mic and says, “The Women’s Division in AEW is heating up, baby!” Fans cheer that! “Now, I put the locker room on notice when I came back, but I’ll remind you again. Any woman that wants to step up in this ring, any woman that wants to join this Women’s Division, the Professor will be here waiting in Deeb’s Dojo, waiting for the best, because I’m here to elevate this Women’s Division!” The fans cheer that, too! Deeb says, “When The Professor wrestles, the lights don’t turn out. When The Professor wrestles, the picture doesn’t go black ‘n’ white.

“But when The Professor is in the ring, I wrestle! And Serena Deeb is back to claim the division, and I’m here to put the wrestling back in All Elite Wrestling!” The fans fire up for that one! Deeb has called out the champions, will she get to take a title away from one of those champions?

 

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?

Bryan Danielson VS Jun Akiyama!

The bell rings and Bryan stares Jun down as the fans rally up. They both hear the fans mixing “YES! YES! YES!” and “HAI! HAI! HAI!” The two circle, feel things out, and Jun backs Bryan down.

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.

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! Dante mule kicks, whips, but Komander reverses to hook Dante up, COBRA TWIST, into a tilt-o-whirl RANA! Fans fire up as Dante flounders to a corner. Komander runs corner to corner but Dante dodges!

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!

Rampage returns to single picture as Quen stomps Action back to the corner. Tag to Zay, Quen snap suplexes Action down for Zay to slingshot SENTON! Zay smirks and then drags Action up. Zay puts Action in the corner, CHOPS, then tags Quen. Private Party double whip Action to ropes, but Action ducks ‘n’ handsprings to DOUBLE BACK ELBOW! The fans fire up as Action and Private Party are all down. Action crawls, Quen grabs at a foot but hot tag to Dante! Dante rallies on Quen, whips, but Quen reveres.

Dante springboards to CROSSBODY! Cover, Keith breaks it! Darius runs up to CHOP Keith, but Keith ROCKS Darius! Keith runs, but Darius follows to HOTSHOT BULLDOG! And then GAMANGIRI! Darius steps in, but into a KNEE! Keith runs up to SHOTGUN Darius out of the ring! Keith pursues, but Action is there to go after Keith. Action fires forearms, Dante turns around to see Zay. Zay dodges Dante to then FLY out onto Keith, Darius & Action! Dante whips Sydal up and out but Komander tags in. Komander BOOTS Sydal, Dante BLASTS Penta, and Komander gets Sydal in an APRON ROMERO SPECIAL!

Dante builds speed and he FLIES over those two to wipe out Keith and his own teammates! Komander lets Sydal go, Sydal mule kicks Komander down! Sydal goes up the corner, to APRON METEORA! But Penta’s right there! APRON FEAR FACTOR!! Penta rises but Zay springboards, triangle jump STUNNER! Quen gets in, Zay gives him the boost to go up and up and SUPER SWANTON onto everyone else!! The fans are thunderous and Zay takes a bow. Zay then waits as Quen puts Penta in. Zay puts Penta up top, GAMANGIRIS, and then GIN ‘N’ JUICE DESTROYER!!

A huge win for this eccentric trio, will they be hunting down The Acclaimed & Daddy Ass? Or will they try for the Bullet Club Gold’s gold instead?

 

BREAKING NEWS for Collision!

After taking a week off for the NBA All-Star Game, Saturday nights are once again good for a fight. Thunder Rosa and Serena Deeb each return to in-ring action, will these two rivals keep pace in the chase for gold? And we just saw Bryan Keith win big in the trios match, but he’ll jump right back into singles action against Malakai Black! Will the Bounty Hunter get another big win in his hunt for opportunity? Or will the Dark Father prove the House Always Wins?

 

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.

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
