Backstage interview with Kenny Omega & Chris Jericho.

Renee Paquette is with the #GoldenJets and congratulates them on being here for the Dynamite Fourth Anniversary. Just think back to four years ago, them on opposite ends, but now on the same side in a partial rematch with the Don Callis Family. How does it feel to have these four years under your belts? Jericho almost cuts Renee off as he says it is hard to believe that is has been four years. The very first AEW Dynamite main event was Jericho VS Omega. And today, only days after the 33 year anniversary of Jericho’s wrestling debut, he and Omega are aligned to take out the DCF tonight on the four year anniversary! That’s how you celebrate!

But wait! It’s EDGE! Adam Copeland says it is so good to see Renee. There should be fountains of maple syrup flowing right now with all this Canadian energy. He is so happy to be here for Dynamite’s fourth anniversary. He hopes to be here for the eighth, twelfth, and so on. But good luck tonight, Chris. They shake hands, and Omega says it is good to finally meet Copeland. Gotta say, really had Omega on the edge of his seat. And whatever future there is going forward, just let Omega know if you need anything. They shake hands and Edge says he’s gonna go out there, give his mission statement, and just do him a favor and take out the DCF. Edge still can’t stand Don.

Here we go! To another four years! Edge heads out, Renee is excited, and Jericho asks what about him. Well, she always sees Jericho, but y’know. Will AEW soon get Rated R with Adam Copeland around?

 

AEW International Championship: Rey Fenix w/ Penta El Zero Miedo & Alex Abrahantes VS Nick Jackson w/ Matt Jackson!

While the Immortal Firebird went down early in that Fatal 4 Way Tag at WrestleDream, which in part allowed the Young Bucks to become #1 Contenders to the AEW World Tag Team Championships, Fenix is not about to miss the Dynamite Anniversary! But will his reign be cut short because of that bad wing? Or will Fenix avoid all this “curse” talk and continue through the Fall?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see if The Elite grabs up more gold!

The bell rings and fans fire up as the two circle. They tie up, Fenix wrenches and wristlocks but Nick uses ropes to flip through. Nick wrenches and wristlocks, Fenix spins but Nick hits the headlock takeover. Fenix hits headscissors but Nick kips free. Fans cheer as the two reset. They circle, Fenix runs, and RAMS Nick! They stay up so now Nick runs, they RAM shoulders again, and still both men stay up. Fenix trips Nick, things speed up, Fenix rolls, ducks ‘n’ dodges and then jumps, into a CHOP from Nick! Fenix CHOPS back! Fans “WOO~!” as the CHOPS keep going back and forth! Fenix then SOBATS and reels Nick in.

But Nick back drops! Fenix sunset flips it, TWO! Nick rolls Fenix up, TWO! Nick facelocks, Fenix powers up but his back gives up! Fenix falls and bails out to the apron. Penta & Alex are there to check him and Fenix stands, but Nick runs in., Nick avoids the shoulder to CLUB Fenix, then he runs to sunset flip! Fenix holds onto ropes, kicks Nick away, then leaps off the corner, FLYING ARM-DRAG! Both men writhe and hobble up, but Fenix pursues to whip Nick. Nick reverses and Fenix hits railing! Fenix leans on the railing, Nick runs in but Fenix tosses Nick up and over! Fenix ROCKS Nick, then goes up to PENALTY- NO, Nick dodge!

Nick jumps to FLYING RANA! Fans fire up and Nick soaks it all in. Nick puts Fenix in the ring, runs up, but Fenix wrenches to CHOP and knuckle lock! Fenix goes up and up but Nick trips him up! Nick KCIKS Fenix in the back, and DRAPING BACKSTABBERS! Nick lets off as Fenix writhes, and Penta checks on his brother again. Fenix says he’s not giving up so Nick goes to the apron. But Fenix moves and the kick hits POST! Then Fenix sweeps the legs! Nick hits face first on the apron but Fenix is still in his own pain as Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Penta and Alex help Fenix with his back and Fenix gets in the ring. Nick crawls, clutching a foot, but Fenix runs to wheelbarrow and victory roll, into a TRAILER HITCH! Nick endures as Fenix has the legs, and then Fenix grabs an arm. Fenix BITES Nick’s fingers! Nick reaches out, crawls, but Fenix drags him away! Nick endures more pain as he claws his way forward again, ROPEBREAK! Fenix lets go in frustration while fans rally up. Fenix goes for the legs again but Nick KICKS him in the back! They both hobble up, Fenix runs, but Nick scoops to BACKBREAKER! Nick keeps on Fenix in a stretch!

Fenix endures, flails, but Nick lets off because his leg can’t support the weight. Nick hobbles as he stalks Fenix to ropes, and stomps him down! Nick stomps Fenix more and more, then drags him up. Fenix pushes Nick away but Nick kick shim low. Nick reels Fenix in, suplexes, but Fenix knees free! Fenix brings Nick around but the back won’t let him suplex! Nick aims, but Fenix counters the superkick with a superkick! Both men hobble, Fenix kicks but Nick ducks to SUPERKICK Fenix in the back! Fenix hobbles to a corner, Dynamite returns to single picture, and Nick runs in to SHINING WIZARD, GAMANGIRI, FOREARM and- NO, Fenix powers out of the Bulldog to GAMANGIRI!

Fenix whips, Nick reverse, but Fenix ducks ‘n’ dodges and tiger feints. Nick ducks the heel kick but the SUEPRKICK hits! Fenix runs, into a SUPERKICK!! Fenix kips up, but into another SUPERKICK! Both men kip up to DOUBLE ROUNDHOUSE!! Stockton is thunderous for “A E DUB! A E DUB”! while both men are down! A standing count starts, both men are down at 5 of 10, a draw would go the champions way! Fenix and Nick rise at 7, slap some sense into themselves, and then Fenix runs, to DOUBL ELARIAT with Nick! Nick SUPERKICKS! Fenix somersaults to SPIKE-RANA! Cover, TWO!!

Fenix SUPERKICKS! Nick leans against ropes while Fenix clutches his back. Fenix rises again, runs, but Nick goes up and over! “This is Awesome!” as Fenix slides out, then avoids the cartwheel moonsault! Nick hobbles on the bad leg, and Fenix somersaults, into Nick’s cutter! Matt and Penta coach their brothers while the ring count climbs. We pass 5 of 10, and Nick stands at 7. Nick goes up but Fenix drags him down. Nick kicks Fenix, puts him in at 9, then aims. Nick RAMS into Fenix, slingshots, “SUCK IT!” FACEBUSTER! Cover, TWO!! Fenix survives and Nick frowns, but Nick shakes out the bad leg as he stands.

Fans rally and duel, and Nick grabs an arm. B T E- NO, Fenix stands up and gets in Nick’s face! So Nick CHOPS! Nick knuckle locks, but Fenix won’t let him go! Nick ROUNDHOUSES! Nick goes up and up but Fenix trips him, CHOPS him, then jumps up to join him! But Nick ROCKS Fenix to then springboard and SUPER CUTTER!!! Cover, TWO?!? No one can believe it but fans are thunderous all the same! Nick brings Fenix up, Fenix swings but misses and Nick CLUBS him in the back! Then POISON-RANA! Nick runs up but Fenix puts him on ropes, only for Nick to rebound and DESTROYER!! Cover, TWO?!?!

Fans are in disbelief again and loving it! Nick is frustrated but he goes to a corner. Nick watches Fenix rise, runs in, SHINING WIZARD! Fenix roars as he sits up, but Nick roars as he SHINING WIZARDS again! And then, B T E TRIGGER!! Cover, TWO?!?!? HOW?!? Fenix might actually be immortal if he survived that! Nick aims as Fenix goes to ropes, runs in, but the superkick is blocked! Fenix puts the leg on ropes to SUPERKICK the leg! Then Fenix tightrope walk PENALTY KICKS! Then Fenix goes up to FROG SPLASH!!! Cover, TWO?!?!? Now Nick shocks everyone, and Fenix is furious!

Fenix and Nick go to opposite corners. Fans hope they “FIGHT FOREVER!” but this has to end somehow. Fenix runs in, JUMP SOBAT! Fenix reels Nick in, but the back won’t let him fireman’s carry! But then Fenix powers through! But Nick victory rolls! TWO, Fenix has it and even crosses the legs! FENIX WINS!!

Winner: Rey Fenix, by pinfall (still AEW International Champion)

Fenix finds a way to finish this as the victor! But with his back in such bad shape, will the reign continue much longer?

 

Adam Cole visits Roderick Strong at his home.

Cole is doing as Matt Taven asked him to do on Collision, and though he needs it, he delayed his ankle surgery because this is an emergency. And as soon as the front door opens, we can hear Roddy shouting for “ADAAAM~! ADAAAM~!” Cole says yeah, he’s here. Aw, dude, awesome! Then get in here. They’ve got something for him. Cole enters inside and there’s something hidden under a sheet. Roddy, what is this? Well Roddy couldn’t be the only one on wheels, so surprise! They got Cole a crutch scooter! Seriously? Yes! Cole and Roddy ride around the house, having a good time, all while Matt Taven & Mike Bennett watch and… pet Roddy’s stuffed giraffe?

After, Cole says that was so much fun. But Roddy, this visit was supposed to be about some emergency. What was the emergency? Oh, yeah, uh, Roddy just needs to move some furniture. Furniture? Roddy, Cole’s gotta have ankle surgery. Can’t Matt & Mike do it? No way, man, they don’t know anything about interior design! Cole’s numero uno at that! The feng shui is all off in here. Plus, didn’t Cole learn his lesson? He owes Roddy. Roddy tells The Kingdom that Cole doesn’t owe him anything. This is just what best friends do. Right, Adam?

Cole sighs, and while the others just sit around and watch, Cole does his bets to move a table, the couch and fluff pillows, with just one leg. They even have him hang a picture of The Kingdom visiting Roddy in the hospital? That good? Good? Yeah, this is awesome! Wait, he likes this? Like it? He loves it! It’s unique! Just like Cole. Well, alright, but Cole’s gotta get going. Promise to talk to you soon, okay? Great seeing you. But ADAM~! Before you go, Roddy still needs help with a few things. Cole sighs. Is Roddy guilt tripping Cole just to make him do menial tasks?

 

Wardlow VS Griff Garrison!

That’s right! Once again, THIS IS WAR! The former three-time TNT Champion is back, ready to get back on the warpath after a four month absence. Will AEW once again be Wardlow’s World? Or will the Ivy League MVP be able to ace this pop quiz?

The bell rings and Wardlow CLOBBERS Griff! Wardlow RAMS into Griff again and again and again, then stomps a mudhole! Fans chant for ‘WARD~LOW!” as he drags Griff up and reels him in. POWERBOMB! But the encore is here, POWERBOMB!! And then another POWERBOMB!! Wardlow keeps the symphony going, a fourth POWERBOMB!!! Wardlow drags Griff up again!? A FIFTH MOVEMENT!! The ref calls it, Wardlow wins!!

Winner: Wardlow, by referee stoppage

And then Wardlow just storms off into the night! Will he not waste any time getting back to a championship opportunity?

 

Backstage interview with Don Callis & Konosuke Takeshita.

Renee is with the patriarch of the Don Callis Family, and his Alpha, and says the DCF is still riding high from WrestleDream. But they are already facing Jericho & Omega again, and we understand that there is something Callis wants to address. Callis says, “AEW has been shaken to its foundation with Sammy Guevara pinning Chris Jericho at WrestleDream. So much so, that conveniently, the quack medical team here has deemed Sammy Guevara medically unfit to perform.

“And you might think this would cause me a problem, Renee. But here’s what you gotta know about the Don Callis Family, everybody’s talking about it. There is no shortage of eager, able bodied young male athletes that want to show their wares so that they could maybe one day aspire to be part of the Don Callis Family. So at the recommendation of the great Will Ospreay, I have reached into the vault and chosen a great young athlete. A man in his early 20s. A man similarly sized to Takeshita. A great athlete, named Kyle Fletcher. He will be the partner of the Alpha tonight, and that’s gonna be fine.”

But Callis does have a personal message for Jericho & Omega. Before getting too excited about winning this battle, just remember that battles are one and lost in a war. No one remembers who won a battle. They remember who won the war. And Callis will win this one, no matter what it takes. Then will the Aussie Arrow in his arsenal help Creepy Callis end Chris & Kenny?

 

AEW World Trios Championships: The Acclaimed & Billy Gunn VS The Superbad Squad w/ The Bunny & Penelope Ford!

The Scissor World Tour continues as Max Caster, Anthony Bowens & Daddy Ass are still AEW World Trios Champions, and here’s a brand new diss track! “Acclaimed on the mic, it’s a national alert! Butcher and Blade, we put yer asses in the dirt! Their heads are so shiny, oh my gawd! I always knew you guys polished each other’s knobs! I’m just knockin’ ’em dead! Yo, Kip, your best look was the box on your head! All the fans here thinkin’ yer lame. But in Cali, everybody loves The Acclaimed!” Bowens then tells “STOCKTOOON~! The Acclaimed have arrived! SCISSOR ME, DADDY ASS~!” And he DOES! But then the Squad attacks!

Fans boo and the ref reprimands but Butcher throws hands on Billy while Blade CLUBS away on Caster and Kip stomps Bowens! The Squad TOSSES the champs out, but then Billy sends Butcher into railing! Bowens whips Kip and Caster whips Blade! The champs regroup and fans fire up as they TRIPLE SCISSOR~! The Acclaimed go out, but the Squad turns things back around as they send Bowens & Billy into barriers! Caster stalks Blade and the bell finally rings. Caster throws hands, whips, but Blade reveres. Blade scoops, Butcher runs in, SIDEWALK SLAM LEG DROP COMBO! Caster bails out and Kip is there to PENALTY KICK Bowens!

Kip then ARABIAN PRESSES Bowens & Caster down! Kip mocks the scissors while Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Kip puts Caster in, stomps him down, then has him in a corner. Kip stomps a mudhole, the ref counts, and Kip lets off to taunt the fans. Kip storms back up on Caster but Caster kicks low! Caster throws hands but Kip kicks him low. Kip whips Caster into the corner, tags Blade, and Blade snapmares Caster to then KICK him int he back! Blade taunts Billy, drags Caster into a chinlock and grinds him down. Caster endures, fans rally up, and Caster fights up to throw body shots. Blade throws Caster down by his hair! Tag to Butcher and he goes after Caster on the outside, to RAM him into barriers! Butcher puts Caster back in to stomp him around.

Butcher whips Caster hard into a corner and Caster bounces off buckles. Butcher drags Caster up, DECKS him, then HEADBUTTS him! Butcher stomps Caster, tags Kip in, and they mug Caster. Kip ROCKS Caster, snapmares him, and then steps over for a mounted armlock. Kip bends the fingers, then BITES them, as if he’s trying to ruin scissoring! Kip drags Caster up, tags Blade, and Blade CHOPS and ROCKS and CHOPS again! Caster sits down and Blade digs his knee in! The ref counts, Blade lets off, but Butcher CHOKES Caster in the distraction! The ref has to keep Billy and Bowens back, and Blade taunts them.

Blade tags Kip, Kip runs to CANNONBALL! Tag to Butcher and Kip feeds Caster to a FULL NELSON BACKBREAKER! Butcher sucker punches Billy! Dynamite returns to single picture while fans boo Butcher, but Caster BACKHANDS him! Caster baits Butcher and sends him into buckles! Hot tag to Bowens! Fans fire up as the Five Tool Player rallies on Kip & Blade! Haymaker! CHOP! Repeat! ROLLING ELBOW for Blade! ROLLING ELBOW for Kip! Five Tool Strike Fest for Butcher! Bowens shouts, “EVERYONE LOVES THE ACCLAIMED!” Kip shouts, “NO THEY DON’T!” Bowens SOBATS Kip for that!

Bowens then runs to KOTARO KRUSHER! Cover, Butcher breaks it! Billy runs in to ROCK Butcher, but Butcher brings Billy around to TOSS him out! But Billy drags Butcher out to join him, and sends him into railing! Caster scoops Blade, SLAMS him, and then has the legs! Bowens goes up, Billy helps Caster open Blade up, SCISSOR ME TIMBERS! Kip springboards in but Bowens SUPERKICKS him down! Then Caster hauls Kip up, he and Bowens coordinate for the ASSISTED FALCON ARROW! Cover, The Acclaimed wins!

Winners: The Acclaimed, by pinfall (still AEW World Trios Championships)

And the tour continues! When and where will Caster, Bowens & Billy go next with these titles?

 

PROGRAMMING REMINDER for next week!

Remember, Dynamite won’t be on Wednesday (blame MLB), but that means it’ll be #TitleTuesday! For one, we see Saraya defend the AEW Women’s World Championship against Hikaru Shida! Will the Knight defeat the Samurai? Or will we see history be made as Shida becomes a THREE-TIME AEW Women’s World Champion? Then, after both men were victorious at WrestleDream, Swerve Strickland and Bryan Danielson compete in a #1 contender’s match, the winner challenging Christian Cage for the TNT Championship!

After making it through tonight, Rey Fenix will again defend his International Championship against the former champion, Jon Moxley! Will the Maniac be back on top now that he’s back to 100%? And in his AEW in-ring debut, Adam “Edge” Copeland takes on Christian Cage…’s Right Hand of Destruction, Luchasaurus! Will the Rated R Superstar look to get through the pawn to get to the king? Or will Captain Charisma have plenty of tricks up his turtleneck’s sleeves?

 

Toni Storm, Portrait of a Star, part 3.

The Lightning From Down Under breathes heavily as she sulks by the window. RJ City says that she has been wrestling now for 14 years. Toni starts throwing shoes immediately! We don’t talk about that, now do we? Time! Who cares? Talk about the now! She’s here now! RJ is sorry, he wasn’t thinking! Toni grabs him by the collar and says he wasn’t thinking because he doesn’t know anything! He doesn’t know what it’s like to live this life! To be in the spotlight and everyone is trying to take it away from you! And all those that you came up with wither away into husks of themselves and you pray that you don’t end up the same!

Toni lies awake at night, wondering if she has “it,” or if she’s just lucky! Every match, every minute of every PPV is just a roll of a dice to see if it all gets taken away! That’s what RJ doesn’t know because he can’t know so he won’t ever know! Okay, but she’s not old! Oh, yes. She’s timeless. She’s timeless…! Toni looks to the sky and says, “I’m timeless! I’m TIMELESS!” With her mascara and lipstick smeared, Toni finally has some sense of sanity again. Will #TimelessToni finally be back in the spotlight?

 

AEW hears from Bryan Danielson and Zack Sabre Jr.

After their match at WrestleDream, The American Dragon sat backstage and said, “I have never, in my entire career, gotten to wrestle like that in front of these people. I am so grateful and happy that I was able to do that against a person as good as Zack.” But the Front Man said they were supposed to settle something tonight. Bryan says he knew that in order to beat ZSJ, he’d have to knock him the F out. But ZSJ counters that knocking him out to win was a scoundrel move. Bryan admits he was also disappointed in himself. He thought that at the end of this match, they would find out definitively who is the best technical wrestler in the world.

ZSJ says he felt Bryan’s bones disintegrate in ZSJ’s hands. Bryan says ZSJ does not have the heart that Bryan has! The soul that Bryan has! These two are clearly not done with each other, so when and where will we see the dream match go another round?

 

AEW hears from Hangman Page.

The Cowboy says that he finally gets it. The Mogul nearly broke Hangman’s arm, and still had to hit him with whatever that was. And yet Swerve thinks he’s got the spot now? That’s how this happens? That Swerve doesn’t have to earn it if he can just take it? Maybe he’s on to something, who knows. But for Hangman, he just needs rehab, icepacks, and to go back to the drawing board. Swerve, if you think cheating and hitting Hangman in the head with foreign objects is what gets you Hangman’s spot, you’re wrong. But Swerve is the one facing Bryan for the TNT title #1 contender’s spot, will he earn it by any means necessary?

 

Bullet Club Gold is here!

Rock Hard Juice Robinson, Fully Cocked Colten Gunn and… Austin Gunn are here, but not Switchblade Jay White. That is because after getting in the face of Maxwell Jacob Friedman, a mysterious band of masked men attacked White backstage, and their leader was wearing MJF’s infamous devil mask. MJF defended his innocence on Sunday, but there still needs to be proof. Austin gets the mic to ask, “Who’s ready for story time with the Bang Bang Gang, baybay?” Fans boo his reference to Adam Cole, as well as Colten and Juice mocking Cole and MJF posing together with their bad foot and bad neck.

Austin says no, no, no, get up. They’re not here to address “the soft, brittle, injury prone one.” They’re here to address the brown-haired kid that stands about this high (Austin motioning MJF is short, but uh, is taller than Austin…) and struts around with all those belts. The one they call “The Devil.” Oh, the People’s D-Bag? Er, no, scumbag. The one who says he’s a generational talent, yet he spent like 20 minutes on White and the best he came up with was “Tofu?” Fans chant “TOFU! TOFU!” but Colten says MJF jumped White because he is scared! MJF knows he is gonna suffocate when he tries to Breath With The Switchblade!

Fans boo but Juice takes the mic to tell Friedman, “Get your ass out here! You got some splainin’ to do, boy! C’mon, you can wear your little devil Halloween costume! Bring your band of gimp suits! If you’re a man, you’ll come out here and face us like one! But you ain’t a man, are you? No. You’re a little itty bitty butt sucking-” WAIT! Speak of the Devil of AEW, here comes MJF! And MJF has the music cut so he can say, “It appears the Devil has arrived in Stockton, California! And we’ve got an interesting trio in here making a lot of accusations, huh? We’ve got the Ass~ Boys~.” Fans echo “ASS~ BOYS~!”

And there’s also their best friend, Juice Robinson, AKA Talentless Taint! Juice can’t believe MJF went with “taint.” The Gunns say he’s rock hard! MJF says it is crazy, but call him Mystic Max. Right here in Stockton, we’re gonna have one of the loudest dueling chants ever. It’s gonna sound like this: “ASS~ BOYS~!” “TALENTLESS TAINT!” Fans jump on it right away! “ASS~ BOYS~!” “TALENTLESS TAINT!” The BCG all block each other’s ears but MJF says he’s magic! Isn’t that nuts!? And interestingly, MJF has done some horrible things in life. And since it is the fourth anniversary of Dynamite, maybe it’d be good to list them off right here!

The fans cheer that, but MJF wants Stockton to understand, he is a raging narcissist. Try that again. He wants to do it right here in Stockton! The fans cheer louder and MJF says for starters, he threw Jericho off the top of the Blood & Guts cage. Then he whipped Cody Rhodes ten times with a belt. He just so happened to give several children dodgeball related injuries. And his personal favorite: he almost got them kicked off of TV when he decided to call his boss, Tony Khan, “an effing mark.” So what MJF is curious about, BCG, what makes you think he wouldn’t be honest and open? He’s honest and open about everything he’s done in his life, because he’s not just a scumbag, he’s THE PEOPLE’S SCUMBAG!

Fans chant “He’s Our Scumbag!” and MJF smiles and shrugs. But what’s even more interesting, MJF knows for a fact he didn’t go and attack their boy, “Tofu” White. Fans chant “TO~FU! TO~FU!” But if they don’t wanna talk it out like gentlemen, MJF has been hanging around out here in Stockton, and he knows how the people here handle business. So here’s an idea. Right here, right now, we have ourselves a Stockton Street Fight!! Fans fire up for that as MJF storms up, Dynamite Diamond Ring on hand! Fans lose their minds as BCG is more than ready, and MJF throws off his shirt and the belt. But then BCG bails out?

Fans boo and MJF says he thought so. But JAY WHITE IS HERE! Switchblade hits BLADERUNNER on MJF!! The Bang Bang Gang got one over on MJF, and White holds up the AEW World Championship. Devil ambush or not, White wants to take Triple B from MJF, and in fact, he seems to be taking it with him as it is! Fans boo, but what will MJF do to get revenge? White gets on the mic to tell the fans to shut up! He needs their scumbag to hear this. “This looks right. Now Max, I don’t know what type of caliber athlete you’re used to dealing with, but I’m a cut above and your cheap parlor tricks and games don’t work here.

“Yeah, yeah, yeah, you got the best of me last week. But you’re not fooling anybody! None of us believe a single word that comes out of your scummy little mouth! And you say it wasn’t you? Might as well be a confession! Cuz we’re not buying what you’re selling, unlike all these filthy poors!” Fans boo and MJF scowls as he sits up. White says no, no, no! Unlike everyone else, the BCG use their brains! They know the REAL MJF: a pathetic, dirty liar! A slimy, gutless coward! And the BCG need a truly elite champion! One that lives up to that name! And Maxwell Jacob Friedman is NOT him!

But hey, White is fair. If MJF wants to prove him wrong, then put it all on the line! November 18th, the Kia Forum in Los Angeles, Full Gear! MJF VS Switchblade for the AEW World Championship! Fans do like that idea, and White says Max can try to prove him wrong. MJF can try to prove he is truly elite, and he will FAIL! But White says he’ll take it from there. He’ll lead by example starting tonight! He’s taking Triple B, and if he’s not down with that, they’ve got two words for ya! GUNS UP! MJF gets a mic and says no no no, Tofu! You want MJF at Full Gear?! Then MJF has two words for him! “YOU’RE ON!!”

Fans fire up and the Devil is coming to LA! But is this all playing into King Switch’s hands? Or will White regret angering the devil he knows?

 

Backstage interview with OrangeHook.

Renee is with Freshly Squeezed and the FTW Champion and says at WrestleDream, they were so close to becoming #1 contenders to the AEW World Tag Team Championships. Cassidy says yeah, yeah, and they would’ve been great champions. But hey, Hook uh, is still a great champ cuz he has a championship. Hook says Cassidy will be a great champion again, too. It should be him against Fenix and not Moxley. Yeah, but uh, Moxley was champ for like three weeks and Cassidy was champ for eleven months. They share some chips, and Cassidy says it’s whatever. When and where will Orange get back to being golden?

 

Kenny Omega & Chris Jericho VS Kyle Fletcher & Konosuke Takeshita w/ Don Callis!

While The Cleaner, The Ocho & The Golden Star couldn’t beat the Don Callis Family, it is a partial victory that they sidelined The Spanish God for the Dynamite Anniversary. However, will they be able to rebound now that an Aussie Arrow is aimed in their direction? Or will the Winnipeggers stay alive in this war with Creepy Callis?

Callis joins commentary while The Alpha and Fletcher go to the ring. The teams sort out and Konosuke starts with Jericho. The fans fire up as the two circle and the two tie up. Konosuke waistlocks, Jericho wrenches and headlocks but Konosuke powers out to run Jericho over! Konosuke flexes but Jericho CHOPS! Konosuke CHOPS, Jericho CHOPS, then they fire forearms! Konosuke claws Jericho’s eyes, headlocks, but Jericho powers out to run Konosuke over! Jericho keeps on Konosuke, tags Omega, and fans fire up even more! Omega throws hands, CLUBS Konosuke then CHOPS again! Fans rally as Omega bumps Konosuke off buckles!

Omega ELBOWS Takeshita, reels him in, and tags Jericho back in. They mug Konosuke, then Jericho brings Konosuke around. Konosuke blocks the suplex, but Omega CLUBS Konosuke! Omega helps out, they DOUBLE SUPLEX Konosuke down! Fans fire up and Jericho has the cocky cover, ONE! Jericho drags Konosuke up, but Konosuke claws Jericho’s eyes! The ref reprimands, Konosuke whips but Jericho reverses as Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Konosuke ducks ‘n’ dodges and TAKESHITA LINES Jericho down! Konosuke suplexes Jericho high and hard, then cocky covers! Omega CLUBS Konosuke! Konosuke glares at Omega but tags to Fletcher. Fletcher taunts the fans, then sucker punches Omega! Omega rushes in, the ref keep shim back, and Fletcher bumps Jericho off buckles. Fletcher CHOPS Jericho, then brings him around to scoop and SLAM! Cover, TWO! Fletcher is annoyed but he drags Jericho over to tag Konosuke. They stand Jericho up and mug him, then Konosuke fires forearms. Jericho hits back, the two go back and forth, and Konosuke winds up to DECK Jericho!

Konosuke looms over Jericho at the ropes, and puts him on ropes to CHOKE! Fletcher taunts Jericho, the ref counts, and Konosuke lets off. Jericho sputters, Konosuke brings him up and ROCKS him again! And again! Konosuke runs into a DROPKICK! Jericho and Konosuke are both down, and Konosuke tags Fletcher! Fletcher stomps Jericho down, then taunts him to tag Omega. Fletcher brings Jericho up, ROCKS him, then CHOPS him! Jericho CHOPS back! Fletcher CHOPS again, so Jericho CHOPS again! Fletcher CHOPS then fires off a flurry of forearms! Fletcher runs, but Jericho THROAT CHOPS him down!

Dynamite returns to single picture as the fans rally up for Jericho! Omega coaches him on, Jericho LIONSAULTS! Direct hit but Jericho can’t make the cover after bouncing off Fletcher! Jericho and Fletcher crawl for their corners, hot tag to Omega! The Cleaner rallies on Fletcher and Konosuke with big Polish Hammers! Fletcher dodges the discus to kick and whip but Omega reverses to fireman’s carry! “YOU! CAN’T! ESCAPE!” But then Fletcher does! Fletcher runs in at the corner, Omega dodges and the kick hits buckles! Omega then scoops Fletcher to put him in the ropes. Konosuke CLUBS Omega!

Konosuke whips, Omega reverses and fireman’s carries! “YOU! CAN’T! ESCAPE!” ROLLING SENTON for Konosuke, then a DRAPING BACKSTABBER for Fletcher! The fans are thunderous as Omega drags Fletcher up to full nelson. Konosuke runs in so Omega ditches Fletcher to catch Konosuke. But Konosuke elbows out hard! And ROCKS Omega! Fletcher SNAP HALF ‘N’ HALF! Jericho runs in, but into a SUPERKICK! Fletcher and Konosuke coordinate, Omega in one corner and Jericho in the other. They both run, GAMANGIRI for Jericho and BOOT for Omega! Then they go the other way, GAMANGIRI for Omega and BOOT for Jericho!

Omega runs but Fletcher follows to CALF KICK! Fletcher scoops, but Omega slips free and feeds Fletcher to a CODE BREAKER! Then Electric Chair Lift! ONE WINGED ANGEL!!! Cover, Golden Jets win!!

Winners: Kenny Omega & Chris Jericho, by pinfall

Callis says Fletcher screwed this up! Well, guess that means there won’t be a spot in the family for Fletcher. But as Callis said, this isn’t about winning battles but about winning the war! Wait, who’s coming in from crowd side? POWERHOUSE HOBBS CLOBBERS OMEGA AND JERICHO!?! Hobbs has been out of action since All Out, and he vowed absolute destruction, but is this what he meant? Callis grins as Hobbs rains down fists on Jericho, then he kicks Omega out of the ring! Hobbs drags Jericho up, for the SPINEBUSTER!! Hobbs then goes out after Omega to RAM him into railing!

Omega flails and sputters but he’s stuck! Callis applauds while the fans boo and chant “YOU SUCK! YOU SUCK!” Hobbs doesn’t care, he BOWLS Omega into more chairs!

Hobbs then drags Omega up, TOSSES him back over the railing, and returns to ringside. Konosuke puts Omega in the ring, and Hobbs looks around under the ring. Omega crawls while Konosuke stalks him. Hobbs throws duct tape in, and then gets a chair! Konosuke CHOKES Omega, and Callis uses the tape to tie Omega to the ropes! Omega is bound and defenseless as Hobbs storms up with the chair. Konosuke DROPKICKS Jericho off the apron, keeps him down on the outside, and then Callis makes sure Omega is completely immobilized. Jericho gets in but Hobbs JAMS him with the chair, then CLOBBERS him with it!

Fans boo as Jericho is down and Hobbs fires off shots on Omega’s ribs! Hobbs says everybody can get it! Hobbs then aims, but Callis says hold on. Callis wants to be the one to do the honors. Hobbs says go right ahead. Omega tries to kick at Callis, but Hobbs and Konosuke hold him back, so Callis can HEADSHOT!!! Callis shows off the dent in the chair, his new “masterpiece” to go with all his oil paintings. Fans chant “F YOU HOBBS!” and “F YOU CALLIS!” but Callis gives Omega some stomps. Callis holds up Hobbs’ hand, is the Powerhouse now part of the family?

 

Backstage interview with MJF.

Renee is with The People’s Scumbag and brings up what we saw happen with him and Bullet Club Gold. That vicious attack, White stealing the world title, and then issuing a challenge for the title which MJF has now gone and accepted. He has so much going on right now, so how is he feeling? Wait, The Acclaimed have walked in to get some electrolyte drinks, and Caster notices MJF. Caster walks over to take over the neck rub. MJF notices and gets very upset! He is so sick of this! Caster has been leaving weird letters in his bag, and constantly tweeting really weird stuff at him! Is Caster a stalker or something?

Caster defends it isn’t like that. No, it is exactly like that! Caster either leaves or MJF gets a restraining order on him! But maybe scissor- NO! No scissors! Okay, okay, sorry. Caster still says MJF is King Maxie. Caster leaves with the rest of The Acclaimed, and Renee agrees, Caster’s tweets do come off as a bit aggressive. MJF wants to call Cole, he just can’t take being on his own right now. The phone rings but there’s no answer. Voicemail? MJF is so frustrated, and doesn’t even bother leaving a message. What is MJF going to do without anyone backing him up?

 

AEW hears from Samoa Joe.

As he has himself some scotch and a nice cigar, The One True King of Wrestling Television says, “There’s many aspects to being a champion, but the one thing you can never truly replicate is the hunger to be a champion. Now, I’ve been a champion myself many times. And over those championship reigns, I know what it is to be hungry, and to be satisfied. Now the man that you look at before you is a man who is very satisfied, who has all the comforts of the world because he has been a champion everywhere he has ever been. But there in lies the problem. Y’see, for me to be a champion, I need to be focused. For me, to be a champion in this day and age, I need that hunger.

“That is why that I am here today, to announce that I am focused, I am ready, and that I should be AEW World Heavyweight Champion. And granted, no matter how I may feel about the outcome of my championship match, Max, you did earn my respect. And soon enough, you’ll realize that when I’m hungry, I always manage to eat.” The ROH World Television Champion is not going to stop at being ROH World Television Champion, so will he become the One True King of Wrestling period?

 

Toni Storm VS Skye Blue!

Just as she said earlier tonight, Toni is timeless! So does that mean no matter what, she will always be the star in the spotlight? Or will the Storm be blown away by the Chicago Skye?

The bell rings and Storm shakes hands with the ref. Then Storm offers to shake Skye’s hand, only to short arm LARIAT her instead! The ref reprimands but then Storm stomps away on Skye! Storm drags Skye up, and TOSSES her by her hair! The ref reprimands more but Storm puts Skye in a corner. Storm then TOSSES Skye by her hair again! Fans cheer and Storm soaks it all in. Storm drags Skye up, but Skye shoves her, runs in, and she THROWS Storm by her hair! Fans cheer the payback and Skye SHOTGUNS Storm to a corner! Skye runs in but Storm dodges! Storm runs in but Skye dodges to ROCK her with a forearm!

Skye goes up but Storm CHOPS first! Storm runs side to side to HIP ATTACK Skye to the floor! Fans cheer and Storm says we’ll be right back after these words from “our very, very important sponsors.” What a great segue into picture in picture!

Storm drags Skye up, CHOPS her, and then CHOPS her again! Skye staggers away, Storm brings her around and RAMS her into railing! Storm refreshes the ring count, then brings Skye up to wave to fans. And then she CHOPS Skye again! Storm says her hand hurts! Skye crawls but Storm drags her up, but Skye avoids the chop! To CHOP back! Skye stomps Storm, Storm tries to crawl under the ring but Skye drags her back out. Storm BOOTS Skye away, refreshes the ring count again and then goes out after Skye. Skye hits back but Storm CHOPS her down! Storm drags Skye up to RAM her into the railing!

Fans cheer as Storm CHOPS Skye again! Storm keeps Skye from going too far away and puts her in the ring. Storm kicks Skye around, then brings her up to CHOP! Skye sputters, and Storm reels her in to snap suplex! Cover, TWO! Storm is annoyed but she brings Skye around and pulls her hair. The ref reprimands, Storm lets off, and she pushes Skye around. Storm smears Skye’s face into the mat! The ref reprimands, Storm lets off, and she paces around Skye. Storm kicks Skye around, pie faces her, and Dynamite returns to single picture as Skye throws body shots! Storm reels Skye in but Skye fights to a victory roll! TWO!

Skye fires off forearms on Storm! Fans fire up with Skye and she whips, but Storm reverses. Storm scoops, Skye RANAS! Fans fire up with Skye again and she runs to SHINING WIZARD at the ropes! Then a snapmare, but Storm blocks the superkick, only for the BASEMENT ROUNDHOUSE to hit! Skye shouts and fans fire up with her again. Skye runs corner to corner but Storm puts her on the apron. Skye ROUNDHOUSES, goes up top, and she CROSSBODIES! Cover, TWO! Storm is still in this and Skye grows frustrated. Skye full nelsons but Storm arm-drags free, to SKY HIGH! Cover, TWO!!

Storm is upset with the ref but the ref says his count was fair. Storm says “How DARE you!” But Skye rolls her up! TWO, and Skye SUPERKICKS Storm down! Cover, TWO!! Storm survives and Skye can’t believe it! Skye drags Storm up, slaps her around, and Storm clings to Skye, apologizing? Skye pushes Storm away, but Storm blocks the kick and hits a GERMAN SUPLEX! Skye flounders to a corner and Storm goes to the other. Fans fire up as Storm says “I’m ready for my closeup!” Storm runs in to SWEET HIP MUSIC!! And then the STORM ZERO!! Cover, Storm wins!

Winner: Toni Storm, by pinfall

Timeless Toni’s debut is a blockbuster! She thanks the ref and Skye for their part in this performance, but will she become an award-winning leading lady? AKA, a champion?

 

BREAKING NEWS for Rampage!

As the chase for tag title opportunities continues, The Hardy Boyz team up with Best Friends to take on the former Jericho Appreciation Society! Will Matt, Jeff, Chuck & Trent DELETE these sports… enner-tay-ners? Plus, Hikaru Shida teams up with Kris Statlander to take on the Vicious Vixens, Nyla Rose & Marina Shafir!

Backstage interview with Stokely Hathaway.

Renee is with a member of the ROH Board of Directors, and he cuts her off to say he can handle this. He has breaking news, that he couldn’t say on Sunday because Eddie was so rude, but this Friday on Rampage, there will be a Fatal 4 Way to determine a #1 contender to the ROH World Championship. “And guess what, Eddie? You will be there live doing commentary to see who is next in line. We need a champion that smells like Tom Ford, not Burger King and Newports. See you Friday.” Big Stoke may just be stoking the flames, will The Mad King have his own response to all this?

 

BREAKING NEWS for Collision!

After getting the WrestleDream All-Star 8 Man win last week, Ricky Starks & “Big Bill” Morrissey are getting a big opportunity! They’re facing FTR for the AEW World Tag Team Championships! It will be a special 7 PM Eastern edition of Collision, will it be an Absolute classic? Or will Cash & Dax still be Top Guys?

 

Tony Schiavone is in the ring.

He says “What a way to celebrate the fourth anniversary of Dynamite.” Welcome to All Elite Wrestling, the Rated R Superstar, ADAM COPELAND! “You think you know him.” Edge makes his entrance and Stockton goes wild as he gets his pyro! Edge gets in the ring and fans fire up even more. Schiavone says it is great to be here with a true legend. It was the biggest news the last week, the fans are still rabid for Edge being All Elite. Edge says he grew up with Schiavone’s voice as the soundtrack to his childhood, so this is a big deal for Edge. And he loves Schiavone, but this is his ring now, so hit the bricks.

Edge and Schiavone shake hands and fans chant “ADAM! ADAM! ADAM!” Edge says he’s never heard that chanted for him before, that is fun! But seriously, he came out here, and he wants to rewind back a bit. 2011, he’s told he can never do this again. Fans boo that memory, but Edge says we’re in 2023 and now he’s in AEW! Fans cheer that! And now there are quite a few reasons why Edge is here. He’ll get to the major reason why last, though. Because he doesn’t know about them, but he is pretty sure the AEW World Championship would look good around Edge’s waist. There is a whole roster of first-time-ever matches for Adam Copeland. And yes, he referred to himself in the third person, never done that before, so kinda weird. Won’t do it again.

Fans again chant for “ADAM! ADAM!” and Edge wants us to think about it. First-time-ever matches! Edge VS Jon Moxley! Edge VS Kenny Omega! Miro! Powerhouse Hobbs! Jay White! “Stray Bullet” Juice Robinson! Those are all amazing reasons to be here. To challenge Edge 31 years into his career with something brand new, and the fans are making that happen. He’s said this before, this will be the last time he says it, the main reason Edge came to AEW was because he sat down with his family. He said to his little girls, Lyric and Ruby, “What’s Dad do? Should I retire?” That choice was up there.

But then Lyric, at only nine years old yet far wiser than him, told him to go have fun with “Uncle Jay.” So speaking of Uncle Jay, he’ll call him what we all know him as: Christian Cage. Fans boo and Edge knows. But right now, Edge wants to talk to Christian to tell him the real reason for being here. Edge waits, fans chant “UNCLE JAY! UNCLE JAY!” and here comes Captain Charisma! The man who is still AEW TNT Champion after Nick Wayne betrayed Darby Allin now struts to the ring, that belt on his shoulder. Christian circles around Edge once, and then looks him in the eyes while fans lose their minds.

Edge says for 40 YEARS, these two have been best friends. They were friends even before being in the industry. But it was being in this industry together that made them realize they would be friends for life. Fans cheer that, but Edge continues to say, “I know what you’re thinking. Why did I do what I did at WrestleDream?” Why did Edge smash Nick Wayne, throw the chair at Luchasaurus and hit Spears on them both? It is quite simple: Edge sees Christian here, just like this, his face all pursed up to look more like a dick than usual. TV censored it but the fans reveal what was said.

And even though Edge knows this about Christian, he still loves him.  Fans go “Aww…” as Edge says that’ll never change. But Edge saw Christian standing over Sting. Sting! A man whose poster Christian once took to the barber and put it on the mirror so that they would cut Christian’s hair like that. Yeah, the classic box top with rat tail while Edge had the Lex Luger. That was them! And Edge sees Christian standing over Sting, “a man who has entertained people for over four decades! A man who has caused people to feel for over four decades! A man… My wife’s parents, they couldn’t speak English, they’re Polish, but guess what? They loved Sting.”

So Edge can’t just stand here and watch Christian smash Sting with a ConChairTo! That is why Edge did what he did. But Edge also did it because he knows, from experience, that Luchasaurus and Nick Wayne are gonna drop Christian like a bad habit once they’ve sucked all the knowledge they can outta Christian’s brain. Fans go “Ooh~!” Edge says Christian is so egotistical that he won’t see it. “But Jay, man, I’m here. I am here because it’s time.” Huh? That got Christian to look up. “It’s time. For the first time since 2011, for the first time properly in over 20 years, it’s time. For you and I… To team together again.” Fans love that idea!

Edge wants Christian to join him in facing a team like FTR! A team like The Young Bucks! To show an entire generation for fans why Edge & Christian is inarguably among the greatest tag teams of all time!! Fans chant “YES! YES! YES!” Edge is here, hat in hand, asking Christian… “Let’s do it. Let’s end our careers together as a team. Let’s show them all what we can do!” Fans chant “ONE MORE TIME! ONE MORE TIME!” Christian wipes off his hand, and holds it out to Edge. Edge hands over the mic, and Christian looks at his TNT title. Then he offers Edge a hug! Edge takes it! Fans cheer that these two are together!

But then Christian says Edge can go F himself?!? Fans boo as Captain Charisma just rejected his oldest friend in the world!! Christian leaves, fans tell him he’s an a-hole, but he doesn’t care. Christian says, “Before I go, just a quick reminder, Adam, of what you’ll be up against this Tuesday, live on Dynamite.” Luchasaurus makes his way out, Nick Wayne by his side. Captain Charisma and his cohorts stand against Copeland, will they end AEW’s Rated R Era before it begins?


My Thoughts:

A great episode to follow-up WrestleDream and build upon it for AEW. Though, rather unfortunate to learn there were some injuries that ended up changing plans here. Sammy really did rock himself after that awkward flying cutter on Jericho, and Mark Davis really did hurt his wrist after that rough splash by Cash Wheeler. But Fletcher was a great choice to sub in for Sammy in that tag match with Konosuke, Jericho and Omega. And then in a big surprise, Hobbs is the newest member of the DCF! A little torn on that move, though. On one hand, this is going to get Hobbs screentime as he deserves. But on the other, I’d hoped he was done with factions after breaking away from QTV.

I’m also a little upset about how AEW keeps having ROH related things happening on their programming and not on ROH programming. Yes, Samoa Joe has a great promo, and him going after the AEW World Championship is fitting, but what happened to his story with Stokely and Dalton Castle with the ROH World Television Championship? And speaking of, Stokely telling us about the Fatal 4 Way on Rampage was redundant after hearing about it via the Rampage match card announcement. And then, while great for Lince Dorado to show up here in AEW and to get right in a contender’s match with Komander, Penta and Johnny Mundo TV, the ROH World Championship having a contender’s match on AEW programming just makes ROH TV into more of an afterthought.

Great opening match with the International Championship, and I assume they’re just playing up Fenix’s back being in bad shape to push this “is the title cursed?” story. But Fenix retaining was the right move since the Bucks already have the ROH World Six Man titles and are set up for another AEW World Tag title match. FTR VS Starks & Morrissey will be great stuff on Collision but I just feel like FTR retains so that it will be FTR VS Bucks Round 4 at Full Gear. Fenix VS Moxley for Title Tuesday is going to be awesome stuff, and hopefully both men get to give it their all, no dazed/concussed Moxley this time.

Wardlow making a surprise return to squash Griff and then just leave was pretty good stuff. Let’s just hope he doesn’t get booked into a corner this time. Great promos from Bryan Danielson, ZSJ, and Hangman Page. Bryan VS Swerve is going to be great stuff, and even though Christian Cage is TNT Champion right now, I feel like either Bryan or Swerve could win the contender’s match. Though, I am leaning towards Bryan so that Hangman and Swerve can have their rematch at Full Gear. And really good, though outta nowhere, Trios Championship match. Acclaimed win, of course, and maybe they’ll get a real feud for Full Gear.

Great promo stuff from MJF and Bullet Club Gold, especially with White’s surprise appearance to take down MJF and to literally take the title. Rather odd place to plug the social media banter between the Maxes, but it does add a bit to MJF’s frustrations being without his brochacho. Adam Cole had another hilarious segment with Roddy & The Kingdom, clearly giving us the idea that Roddy is now being a two-faced friend after accusing Cole of doing the same. Also, it’s been four years, can’t AEW and Turner networks figure out how to not screw up audio? I didn’t type it twice but they had to play that segment twice because of the issue. At the same time, them having the time to do that gave me the idea that AEW really wasn’t sure what they were doing tonight.

Anyway, we got a fun little promo from Cassidy and Hook. They keep talking about Hook being a great champion and about Cassidy deserving to be a great champion again, so how long are we to wait on them having a friendly match for the FTW Championship? And amazing stuff from Toni Storm tonight as she names this new persona, “Timeless Toni.” Timeless Toni has a great match with Skye Blue, who had darker eye shadow as a nod to getting misted by Julia Hart. I feel like the House of Black could add at least one more female member, so maybe it’s Skye Blue? But at the same time, AEW would still need to get their women’s division more match time per show.

And of course, just as Schiavone said, the big buzz worthy news for AEW is Adam Edge Copeland being here! And yeah, I’m gonna be typing “Edge” when I refer to him mostly because it’s less to type. Edge has a great promo with Renee, Omega and Jericho to open, and a great segment to close. I love that Edge referenced being kicked out of Judgment Day, his own faction, when pleading with Christian. I love that on this day, Edge wanted Christian to see clearly, and to reunite with him as the Team That Reeks of Awesomeness. And I even love that Christian arrogantly rejected Edge.

As I said for WrestleDream, we should definitely get a Six Man Tag of Christian, Luchasaurus & Nick Wayne VS Edge, Sting & Darby before we get Edge VS Christian 1v1, and then it really depends on where the TNT Championship goes before we really do get Edge & Christian reunited to get those tag team dream matches in.

My Score: 8.8/10

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

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

Hobbs snarls as he slowly rises up out of the wreckage. Sammy stirs but Hobbs clears out the debris to bring him up. Hobbs HEADBUTTS Sammy and Sammy staggers away.

Sammy survives but Hobbs grinds him into the mat! Hobbs talks trash on Sammy while he fishhooks the nose and pulls on the ear!

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!

The fans lose their minds all over again as the ref checks Sammy. Sammy gets Hobbs up and into the ring and the fans fire up again. “This is Awesome!” as Sammy takes table number three and sets it back up!

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?

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?

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?

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?

Both men are down and the fans are thunderous! The fans count along with the standing count, and both men are down at 5 of 10. Bryan and Jun go to corners, the fans hope they “FIGHT FOREVER!” Bryan and Jun stand at 8, and they run in, DOUBLE BUSAIKU KNEES!! Both men are down and the fans fire up again! Jun and Bryan rise, and Jun storms up to ROCK Bryan with a forearm! Bryan shakes his head, and he ROCKS Jun in return! Jun ROCKS Bryan again, so Bryan ROCKS Jun again! The fans rally as the forearms keep going back and forth! They go faster and faster, and June DECKS Bryan!

The fans fire up again as Jun waits on Bryan. Bryan sit sup, Jun brings him in, fisherman and- NO, Bryan fights and arm-drags free! Jun runs up but into a KNEE from Bryan! Jun falls over but Bryan shakes his head. Bryan goes to the corner, aims, “YES! YES! YES!” Jun rises up, Bryan runs in, BUSAIKU KNEE!! Cover, Bryan wins!

Winner: Bryan Danielson, by pinfall

The American Dragon survives the Japanese legend, and Eddie says he gives Bryan his due. Eddie’s problem with Bryan was never about his talent, the problem is Bryan’s problem with Eddie. Bryan gives Jun his due by shaking his hand. But then Bryan flips Eddie off! So Jun SLAPS Bryan! Jun doesn’t like the disrespect shown and Bryan apologizes. Bryan offers another handshake, Jun takes it, but Bryan LOW BLOWS Jun! Eddie runs up to TACKLE Bryan! The fans fire up as Eddie punches away on Bryan! The ref reprimands but Eddie doesn’t care, he just keeps hitting Bryan! But then Claudio runs up to tackle Eddie!

The BCC beats Eddie down, but then here comes FTR! Cash & Dax brawl with Claudio & Bryan! The fans fire up as FTR runs the BCC off! BREAKING NEWS via Tony Schiavone! Wednesday Night Dynamite, Six Man Tag: FTR & Eddie VS Bryan, Claudio & Moxley! Will the Top Guys and Mad King finally beat some respect into the BCC?


My Thoughts:

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

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

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

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

My Score: 8.7/10

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

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

In this form of Triple Threat, only two trios are legal at one time, so Action steps up to stare down Sydal. The fans rally up as the two talk some smack, and they circle. They tie up, go around, and Sydal headlocks for a takeover. Action stands up but Sydal hits another takeover. Sydal then snapmares but Action handsprings through! Fans cheer and the two go again. Sydal tilt-o-whirls to RANA, but Action handsprings through again! Action dusts himself off, but Sydal runs up. Action wrenches, CHOPS, and then knuckle locks to go up and up and FLYING ARM-DRAG! Fans fire up as Action DROPKICKS Sydal down!

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

The fans rally as Zay dodges Keith, fires “SHOTS! SHOTS! SHOTS!” and then ROCKS Keith. Zay whips, Keith reverses, but Zay goes up and Quen tags in. Zay RANAS Keith into Quen’s GAMANGIRI! Then Quen springboards to SPLASH Keith! Cover, TWO! Keith is still in this and he tags out to Penta! The fans fire up as Penta somersaults in, but Quen shows he can somersault, too. The fans rally for “CERO! MIEDO!” Penta tells Quen to listen, CERO! MIEDO! Queen says okay, but “What do we want? SHOTS!” Quen shoves Penta, so Penta takes off the glove. The fans fire up, and Penta makes the pass to Alex Abrahantes!

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

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

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

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

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. Quen runs in at the corner, Dante slips out to the apron and Quen hits buckles. Dante then goes up and around to GAMANGIRI!

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!! Penta turned things right around on Private Party!

Keith runs in, Quen BOOTS him first, but Keith roars! Keith RISING HEADBUTTS to send Quen down! Penta sets up as Komander builds speed, BOOSTED TORNILLO onto the cluster outside!! The fans are thunderous again but Sydal rushes Penta! Penta sidesteps, Sydal springboards, but into a SUPERKICK! And then Penta tucks him back in, FEAR FACTOR!! Cover, Penta’s team wins!

Winners: Penta El Zero Miedo, Komander & Bryan Keith, by pinfall

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. Mariah blocks the Gory Especial to backslide hard, TWO! Anna sits up, into a KNEE THRUST! Mariah says it’s time to end this, and she hauls Anna back up. Fireman’s carry, but Anna slips free! QUEENSLAYER!!

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

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

Winner: Mariah May, by pinfall

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

 

Backstage interview with Ruby Soho & Angelo Parker.

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Winner: Roderick Strong, by pinfall

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


My Thoughts:

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

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

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

My Score: 8.7/10
