Tables, Ladders & Scares: The Creed Brothers w/ Ivy Nile VS Angel Garza & Humberto Carrillo!

Julius & Brutus got a big win on Monday Night Raw, and they’re looking to keep that momentum going! But will they be courageous in this spooky, scary No Disqualification tag team match? Or will the former Lotharios show their vicious sides tonight?

The Creeds don’t wait, though! They go after Angel & Humberto at the ramp! The bell rings as the brawl is on and the fans fire up! Brutus UPPERCUTS Humberto, Julius gets a TABLE! The Creeds set that up, but Garza & Carrillo hit back! Fans rally, the Creeds get the edge and they put Carrillo on the table so Julius can carry Garza up the steps! Julius DEATH VALLEY DRIVERS Garza through Carrillo and the table! The fans lose their minds, the Creeds put Carrillo in the ring, and cover, TWO!! Carrillo survives, but Julius wrenches and whips. Brutus fireman’s carries, Julius runs, but into a CHAIR SHOT from Garza!!

Carrillo rolls Brutus, Brutus rolls through and ducks a roundhouse but not the ENZIGURI! Garza hits Julius, Carrillo stomps Brutus, and they fetch a ladder and a few chairs. Garza SMACKS Julius’ leg! Carrillo DROPKICKS Brutus! Garza joins Carrillo in the ring and they set up chairs together, to then put the ladder on them as a makeshift table! They then go out, but the Creeds RAM them down with a ladder! Julius presses the ladder down on the cousins, and Brutus brings another ladder over, to SLAM down on the cousins! Fans fire up as the Creeds drag the cousins out of the wreckage. Fans fire up as another TABLE is here!

Brutus sets this table up, and Julius fetches another table! The fans are thunderous for “TABLES! TABLES!” The tables are put together, Garza POSTS Brutus! Julius and Carrillo are up top, Garza rearranges furniture, and Carrillo throws body shots! Garza CLUBS Julius, Julius fights Carrillo but he’s getting mugged up top! They DOUBLE ROCKET LAUNCHER Julius onto the ladder bridge!!! Julius writhes and fans are thunderous again! Carrillo ROCKS Brutus, Garza DROPKICKS him, and then they hook Brutus up! GORY BOMB NECKBREAKER through the tables!!! The fans lose their minds again as NXT goes picture in picture!

The ref checks everyone, and they’re all somehow okay to continue! Julius drags himself out of the ring but look at that welt on his back! Garza CLUBS Brutus’ leg with a piece of the busted table! Brutus writhes, but Garza traps that leg, to SMASH it with more busted table! Carrillo drags Julius up, he and Garza RAM him into barriers! They then put another ladder in the ring, and go looking for more goodies. They find another table! As if three wasn’t enough already, here’s a fourth!

Carrillo KNEES Brutus, but Julius SMACKS him with a chair! And he SMACKS Garza! Carrillo CLUBS Julius down, Garza throws a piece of table and then SMACKS the table into Julius with a chair! Carrillo puts Brutus in, Garza clears some space, and they drag Brutus over to ropes. Garza puts the chair there, to KNEE it into Brutus! Brutus writhes but Carrillo beats him down! Julius crawls over and he BOOTS Carrillo. Garza goes after Julius, DDT onto a CHAIR! Julius is dazed, the fans fire up, but Garza doesn’t cover. Garza finds another chair, uses that to stand up, and NXT returns to single picture.

Julius and Garza stare down, each man armed with a chair. They swing and SMACK each other! And again! And again! Garza misses, but he SMACKS the chair out of Julius’ hands! Brutus SMACKS the chair out of Garza’s hand! Garza gives Brutus a chair to hold, and Carrillo springboards to GAMANGIRI the chair into Brutus’ face!! All four men are down and the fans are thunderous for “NXT! NXT!” The teams regroup, Carrillo & Garza get a ladder, “This is Awesome!’ as they wedge that in a corner the long way. Julius fires off on Carrillo, Carrillo hits back and throws him out. Carrillo JAMS Brutus, to SMACK him down!

Carrillo sits the chair up, makes Brutus take a seat, and Garza MISSILE DROPKICKS Brutus down! Cover, JULIUS breaks it! The Creeds regroup, but Carrillo sunset flips! Julius sits down to rain down shots on Carrillo! Julius drags Carrillo up, runs in, but Carrillo sunset flips again, to deadlift and POWERBOMB on the ladder!!! The ladder breaks, and maybe so does Julius! Carrillo covers, TWO!!! Garza keeps Brutus down, fans rally up, and the cousins coordinate. But Brutus JAMS Carrillo! Garza TOSSES Julius but Brutus JAMS Garza! And JAMS Carrillo! And repeat! Brutus picks up a ladder and he puts it on, Terry Funk style!

Fans fire up as the LADDER copter starts up! Garza and Carrillo get hit a couple times! Brutus then hoists the ladder up to CHUCK it! Then he WRECKS Carrillo & Garza with a dropkick! He has that ladder, but the cousins DOUBLE CHAIR SHOT the copter down!! They JAM the ladder into Brutus, but Julius FLIES out onto them both!! Fans are thunderous again as Julius gets Brutus up, and they get another table!! This is FIVE now! But then they get ANOTHER! That’s six tables in one match! Julius clears space in the ring so he and Brutus can set these tables up. The tables are side-by-side at center, and Julius CLUBS Carrillo.

Julius puts Carrillo in, brings him around, and Brutus climbs! Fans fire up, but Garza YANKS Brutus down! They brawl, Carrillo fires hands on Julius! Julius drops to his knees, fans rally up, and Brutus DECKS Garza! Garza falls through the table! Then Brutus goes up and Julius stands!! BRUTUS BALL through the tables!!!! Cover, the Creeds win!!

Winners: The Creed Brothers, by pinfall

That was human demolition derby right there, and the Diamond Mine boys stand tall! Will nothing break Julius & Brutus in their pursuit of tag titles?


Shotzi & Scarlett use a Ouija board.

The spirits are unsettled tonight. Is there a ghost host here to guide the foolish mortals into another night of Halloween Havoc? A hand reaches out to say yes. It’s Isla Dawn & Alba Fyre! There has been a “disturbance” that requires some immediate attention. Best not keep the sprits waiting, or things could get a lot worst. And Shotzi & Scarlett, you’ve had your hands full at the reins of all this terror! Please, let them take over for the night. They’ve got this? Oh, they’ve got this. Shotzi & Scarlett head out, and Dawn says it is Halloween Night! Now they are in control! Fyre wants to sew chaos, mischief and misfortune on All Hallows Eve! It’s gonna be so much fun!


Backstage interview with Tiffany Stratton.

The Bride of Chucky is already annoyed given her match is up next, but McKenzie Mitchell just wants a reaction to Fallon Henley’s spot-on impersonation of Tiff. Even THE Tiffany has to admit, the resemblance was pretty good. Tiffany seethes, storms off, and looks to settle things with “Tiffallon Henley,” after the break!


Joe Gacy speaks.

“I’ve made mistakes. I’ve done a lot of unspeakable things. I’ve enjoyed watching people suffer, and I’ve seen horrors. I like it. I like it because I understand it. I had to go through my own pain and suffering to be where I am today. And I’m not justifying my actions, I’m just telling you. I mean, I’m only human, right? I’ve made mistakes, just like anybody else, nobody’s perfect. But still… Still. Peers, friends, strangers, all stab me with their judgmental eyes day after day. I mean, is it me? Am I the problem? I’m not asking for forgiveness, I know there’s a darkness inside of me, built because of my past.

“Once upon a time, I was tethered to society, binded by society, but now… Now, there’s no strings on me. And maybe you’re the kind of person that believes in fairytales, but then again, maybe you’re not.” Just what is growing in the absence of The Schism’s Tree?


Tiffany Stratton VS Fallon Henley!

The Center of the Universe can dish it out but she can’t take it, which is why Fallon poking fun at her got under her skin so badly. But will Tiffany get back at the Cowgirl for Halloween? Or will it be #YEEHAWB*TCH?

Wait, Tiffany attacks Fallon from behind! The brawl starts, fans boo, and Tiffany kicks low! Tiffany RAMS Fallon into barriers, then POSTS her! The ref reprimands but Tiff stands Fallon up and POSTS a leg! Tiff ties Fallon’s legs up for a HANGING FIGURE FOUR!! The ref reprimands, other refs rush out and Tiff lets off. Tiff laughs at Fallon’s pain and soaks up all the heat. Tiffany ruins Fallon’s night and everyone’s fun, but will Daddy’s Little Rich Girl ever face the consequences?


The Meta Four is heading to the haunted house.

And rather fittingly, they’re dressed as Mystery Incorporated, aka Scooby-Doo and the gang. For that matter, Noam Dar is Scooby, Oro Mensah is Shaggy, Lash Legend is Velma and Jakara Jackson is Daphne, but no Freddy? The gate is locked, that’s a sign, right? Dar says no, the cup is in there! They can Scooby-Doo this. Then how do they get in? The gates open on their own…! Dar says that’s just an automatic gate, okay? It means they’re welcome to come in. They walk around, the decorations are pretty spooky, and then there’s a zombie bride! RUN~! Wait, was that Scarlett?

The gang makes it to the Haunted House itself, and Oro hates Halloween. What? Then why did he still dress up? Dar has the group move on, and Lash says Akira is probably not even here, he’s with Alpha Academy. A THANK YEW~! But then a voice beckons to them. What? What’d it say? No idea, but it can’t be good. Doesn’t anyone here speak Japanese? She just said she can’t be good! Dar shouts “TOZAWAAAA~! I want my cup back!” Lightning strikes and Tozawa says, “Come and get it.” Dar says they have no choice. They’re going in!

Cobwebs, skulls in cages. Oro says don’t split up! Great idea. That’s why he’s Dar’s main man. They are Meta Four Strong. Stay together. But then PUMPKIN HEAD scares them all into different directions! To be continued~!


NXT North American Championship: Dominik Mysterio w/ Rhea Ripley VS Nathan Frazer!

Dirty Dom has this title back after Judgment Day helped him cheat Trick Williams, but now the Jersey Island Rocket might get himself a nice treat. Will Frazer clean up this title’s reputation? Or will there still be many tricks up Dom’s sleeves?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see if Dom gets what wants, or just what he deserves!

The bell rings and the two circle. They tie up, Dom throws Frazer but Frazer holds on. Frazer throws Dom but Dom holds on. Dom throws Frazer again and gets free, and he soaks up the heat. The two tie up again, Frazer headlocks, but Dom powers up and out. Things speed up, and Dom hip tosses hard! Frazer gets right up but Rhea still laughs at him. Dom and Frazer circle, tie up, and they go around. Dom puts Frazer in the corner, the ref counts, and Dom ROCKS Frazer! And again! And stomps Frazer down! Dom whips corner to corner but Frazer goes up and over and handsprings away. Frazer then slides under Dom to arm-drag! And arm-drag again!

Frazer hip tosses, then DROPKICKS! Dom bails out and fans fire up! Frazer watches Dom while Rhea checks him. Dom goes to the apron but he backs off, so Frazer sits cross-legged and eggs Dom on. Dom rushes in but Frazer springs up to dodge and headlock. Dom powers out, Frazer goes up and backflips over! Things keep moving, Frazer redirects and redirects and does it again, to duck ‘n’ dodge and CLOBBER Dom!! Fans fire up as Dom bails out again, and NXT goes picture in picture.

Rhea coaches Dom, Dom catches his breath, but Frazer doesn’t look away. Dom takes his time since he has Champion’s Advantage, but Frazer rushes out! Rhea stands in his way, of course, but Frazer gets around her to chase Dom down. Frazer puts Dom in the ring, rushes up, but Dom kicks low! Dom stomps Frazer, then springboard stomps at the ropes! Dom soaks up the heat, has Frazer in a corner, and he drags Frazer out for more stomps! Dom whips corner to corner hard and Frazer tumbles up then down the buckles! Dom covers, TWO! Dom clamps on with a chinlock and he grinds Frazer down.

Frazer endures and fans rally up. Rhea tells them not to bother, but Frazer fights up. Frazer throws body shots, whips Dom to a corner, but Dom slips out! Frazer hits buckles again, and Dom HOTSHOTS Frazer down! Rhea applauds while Dom soaks up more heat. Dom slingshots to SENTON! Cover, TWO! Dom clamps onto Frazer with another chinlock and grinds him back down. Frazer still endures, fights up, and he throws body shots. Dom throws Frazer down by his hair! Rhea cheers and Dom sits Frazer up to clamp on another chinlock. Frazer endures all over again, and he fights up to his feet.

NXT returns to single picture as Frazer throws body shots. Dom knees low, then snap suplexes. Uno Amigo! Fans boo as Dom hits Dos Amigos! And then Dom gives some Latino Heat, blows a kiss to Mami, but Frazer hits a BRAINBUSTER! Fans fire up and Rhea freaks out! Frazer and Dom stir, fans rally up, and both men stand. Frazer throws haymakers om Dom! Dom wobbles, Frazer throws body shots and ROCKS him! Frazer CHOPS, whips, but Dom reverses to SLAP! Dom says he runs NXT, but Frazer TACKLES Dom! Frazer fires off and fans fire up! Dom gets away, Frazer CHOPS him in the corner!

Frazer runs corner to corner, blocks a kick, but not the ENZIGURI! But then Frazer ENZIGURIS back! Frazer runs, QUEBRADA to REVERSE DDT! Cover, TWO! Dom is still in this but Frazer keeps cool. Dom goes to the apron, Frazer storms up but Dom HOTSHOTS him! Frazer staggers back, but he WRECKS Dom with a dropkick! Frazer then builds speed to DIVE, but Dom moves! Frazer lands on his feet, Rhea taunts him, and Dom runs in to SUPERKICK! Fans boo but Rhea just smiles. Dom puts Frazer in the ring, Rhea pats him on the cheer, but then Frazer DIVES! Down goes Dom!!

Frazer puts Dom in, hurries up the corner, and PHOENIX SPL- NO, he rolls through as Dom moves! Dom pops Frazer up to crotch him on the ropes! Frazer flops down, Dom goes up the corner! Dom gives some Latino Heat, but Frazer goes up! SUPERPLEX!! Roll through and FALCON ANARCHY! Cover, TWO!! Dom survives and Rhea is relieved.

Frazer is on ropes, Dom builds speed, but Frazer SUPERKICKS first!!!

Both men are down and the fans are thunderous! “This is Awesome!” “NXT! NXT!” Rhea panics, shouts to Dom, and Frazer goes up. Dom SHOVES Frazer and Frazer hits the desk! Dom drags Frazer up and into the ring, then he goes up! FROG SPLASH!! Cover, Dom wins!

Winner: Dominik Mysterio, by pinfall (still NXT North American Champion)

Dirty Dom gets help from his Mami like always, and that’s why he is still champion. Will Dom be the forever champion at this rate? WAIT! WES LEE SUPERKICKS DOM!! And he CLOBBERS Dom! And CLOBBERS him! Wes drags Dom away from his Mami to DOUBLE STOMP him! Dom sputters, Rhea gets Dom out of the ring, but Wes picks up the belt! Is the Cardiac Kid going to put Dom under cardiac arrest and take the belt back?


Jacy Jayne talks with Andre Chase.

She has to admit, the NXT Tag Team Championship looks good on him. And hey, congrats! He finally knows what it feels like to be a champ! He should be happy! And he should be thanking Jacy? Thank Jacy? Uh yeah, she scratches his back, he scratches her. Uh, last he checked, she tried to cheat to help them. Thea Hail & Duke Hudson walk in, and they ask what the other two were talking about. Nothing much. Just congrats to the Professor for winning. Duke asks if Chase understands the power of these title belts. Duke hasn’t paid for lunch all week! This is awesome! And when Jacy & Thea win the Women’s Tag titles tonight, they won’t be Chase U anymore.

No, no, they will be as the CHAMPIONSHIP UNIVERSITY! Yeah, and to keep that momentum, Jacy & Thea will beat Chelsea & Piper fair and square. Jacy says sure. Jacy says she and Thea have to finish getting ready, but then she signals that she’s keeping her eyes on Chase. The ladies head out, and then Tony D’Angelo & Channing Lorenzo walk in. Tony tells Mr. Chase there are two kinds of wrongs: the wrongs we do and the wrongs done to us. And The D’Angelos will get even on both. Last week went Chase U’s way, so things are a little different. Yes, sir. Wait, “sir?” Duke, relax. Stacks says Mr. Chase owes them.

Duke says they can relax, they will get their title rematch. Yeah. That, too. Tony & Stacks head out, Duke is confused but Chase says he’ll handle it. Fyre & Dawn pop out from the shadows as Poison Ivy & Harley Quinn, and they’re loving this. Poor, naive Thea. She doesn’t realize everyone that touches those titles suffers pain and misfortune. Almost as if they hold the most frightful curse. The wicked witches laugh, but will that curse strike tonight?


NXT checks in with Meta Four.

Jakara Jackson runs away from something, but then calms herself down. She is Miss Jackson, she about that action! She’s ready to fight whatever fright is coming for her! Though she’s not really for the musty, dusty wardrobe selection. SPOOKY HAND! She runs through this maze of 90s fashion, but there’s a spooky tailor! She can’t find her way out~! Then a doll face lady is there, and she just faints. Oro looks for the others, he ends up outside, and turns around to see a spooky butler! Oro takes a step, but the butler takes a step! Oro backs away, into a shed with a zipper face! Oro does his best to hold it together, but he sees these are just dummies.

Wait, there’s a man in a hood! Oro smacks him with his sandwich! Oh hey, Tozawa. WAIT! Tozawa!? Tozawa fires off punches and then throws Oro into a wall! “TAKE HIM AWAY~!” Tozawa’s spooky minions drag Oro into the shadows. Lash lost her glasses, but she sees something under a blanket. Oh, it has to be the cup! She lifts the blanket, and… Nope, just a generic trophy. False alarm. Wait, there’s something else behind this curtain. SPOOKY FAES! PUMPKIN MAN! Lash BOBS the guy with a cookie tray! Lash screams and runs, but into another PUMPKIN MAN! They drag her away into the shadows, too! To be continued, again!


Bron Breakker VS Robert Stone!

“Badass Bron” feels no remorse for what he did to Von Wagner, because he might truly be #MeanerThanEvil. But will he end up doing even worse to Suit Man Stone? Or will Stone avenge his best friend in the best way possible?

The bell rings and Bron dares Stone to do something. The fans rally behind Stone, but Bron’s already cornered him. Stone slips away from Bron, but Bron smirks. Bron corners Stone again, puts him in the corner but Stone throws a haymaker! Bron is mad now, and he chases Stone out and into the ring! Stone ducks ‘n’ dodges but Bron still CLOBBERS him! Fans are torn but plenty bark it up. Bron storms up on Stone, drags him up by his shirt and rips the shirt away! Stone flails and fights but Bron drops him. Bron drags Stone up, to TOSS him across the way! Stone writhes but Bron smirks.

Fans boo but Bron stalks Stone to ropes. Bron stands Stone up, says he won’t have to visit Von at the hospital anymore, because he’s just gonna send Stone there! But Stone SLAPS Bron! Bron SHOVES Stone, runs in but Stone dodges to roll Bron up! TWO!! Fans fire up but Bron gets up and under to TOSS Stone again! Stone writhes, Bron storms up on him, and drags Stone to a corner. Bron brings the straps down, says it’s over, and he takes aim. Stone staggers up, into a SPEAR!! Cover, Bron wins!

Winner: Bron Breakker, by pinfall

Bron isn’t done with the victory, he drags Stone out of the ring! And he goes to the steel steps! Fans boo and the ref reprimands but Bron drags Stone over to set him in place. Bron has the top half, but wait! VON IS HERE?!? Even Bron is stunned to see Von, bandage around his head, run up on him! The big men throw hands, and Von chases Bron into the ring! Von clothesline Bron up and out! Fans fire up and Von keeps after Bron on the outside! Von choke grips, to CHOKE SLAM Bron onto the steel steps! Fans fire up, but Von wobbles. Von steadies himself, and he gets the steps!! But Bron avoids the SMASH!

Security rushes out, fans want to “LET THEM FIGHT!” but Bron gets away. Is karma coming for Bron in the worst way possible?


NXT looks back at Becky VS Lyra.

A truly historic night last week on Halloween Havoc Part 1, and while only one could win, “Ireland would celebrate both of its daughters long into the night.” Becky told Lyra herself that she is happy the one to beat her was Lyra. They hugged it out backstage, and now Lyra carries the torch as the NXT Women’s Champion. She doesn’t just carry that belt or this brand, but the hopes and dreams of an entire nation. She even got to be on Ireland AM via video chat. Destiny was changed, and we bare witness the glorious ascent of The Morrigan, Lyra Valkyria!


#OutTheMud speaks.

Scrypts says he should have had faith that we’d understand him. They actually thought he was sipping wine, or that he was part of some traveling circus. That was the part he played just to fit in with the WWE Universe. But then he met these two men, Lucien Price & Bronco Nima. They reminded him of who he really is. Yeah, he’s Reggie. But where he comes from in St. Louis, they all know him as Scrypts. He’s been locked up, shot at, and watched his uncle die in his bedroom when he was just 11 years old. But just like Price & Nima, they cut from that same cloth.

The streets they grew up on, you Brawling Brutes don’t know a thing about the culture! The grind! The struggled! You just cookie cutter people who ain’t hip to it. You wouldn’t last one week on their block. But then you go and cost OTM their chance at gold. So, Brutes, you are who you are in this world, and that’s one of two things: a somebody, or a nobody! Let’s see which ones the Brutes are. Because OTM, they are somebody!


WWE Women’s Tag Team Championships: Chelsea Green & Piper Niven VS Jacy Jayne & Thea Hail w/ Chase U!

The Hot Mess & Scottish Viper may have just mocked the wrong girls. Things have already been wild in NXT the last couple weeks, will it only get wilder when all of Chase U has gold? Or will Chelsea & Piper make it back to Monday Night Raw still on top?

But wait, Jacy & Thea don’t even wait for introductions, they attack at the ramp! Fans fire up as the brawl is on! Jacy THRWOS Chelsea but Piper fires off on Thea! Jacy puts Chelsea in the ring, the bell sounds, and then Jacy goes out to save Thea from Piper! They RAM Piper into the steel steps! Jacy hurries in after Chelsea but Chelsea rolls her up, TWO! Chelsea stands but into a kick! Jacy whips Chelsea to a corner, runs in to back body block, then snapmares! Chelsea ducks a kick but not the mule kick! Tag to Thea, and Jacy sends her in to back elbow! Thea arm-drags, but the Chelsea avoids the next. Chelsea drags Thea up but Thea arm-drags her after all!

Thea runs in at the corner, Chelsea puts her on the apron but Thea does the splits to dodge! Thea ROKS Chelsea, but cartwheels away as Chelsea runs back in. Thea rushes Chelsea at the ropes but Chelsea dumps her out! Chelsea runs, and slides, but Thea dodges the dropkick! Thea builds speed to DIVE! Direct hit and fans fire up! Thea sees Piper coming, dodges her, and CROSSBODIES! Piper catches her, but then Jacy CANNONBALLS! The Chase U girls take the champs down, and NXT goes picture in picture!

Jacy & Thea say “SUCK IT!” then they get Chelsea up and into the ring. Thea tags Jacy, then they drag Chelsea up again. They double suplex high and hard! Cover, TWO! Jacy paces around, she drags Chelsea up to SMACK her off the mat! Jacy CLUBS Chelsea, tags Thea, and they mug Chelsea. Thea headlocks, Chelsea powers out and Piper tags in. Thea jumps over Chelsea but Piper KICKS her! Chelsea CODE BREAKERS and holds Thea down, for Piper to ELBOW DROP! Cover, TWO! Piper stalks Thea, drags her around, and whips her to a corner. Piper runs in to SPLASH, and Chelsea tags back in.

Chelsea runs side to side to BOOT WASH! Chelsea soaks up the heat, tags Piper back in, and Piper ELBOW DROPS again! Cover, TWO! Thea is still in this but Piper drags Thea up. Thea throws hands but Piper has the COBRA CLUTCH! Thea endures as Piper leans on her. Thea throws hands, fights up, and throws body shots! Piper ripcords to scoop, but Thea has a crucifix! Piper stays up so Thea tries to sunset flip! Piper drags Thea right up to HEADBUTT her down! Piper puts Thea in the corner, CLUBS her, then tags in Chelsea. Chelsea digs her boot in, the ref reprimands and counts, but Chelsea lets off at 4.

Tag to Piper and she clamps the COBRA CLUTCH back on! Thea endures, Piper sits her down and leans on the hold, and NXT returns to single picture. Fans rally as Thea endures, and Thea fights up. Thea throws body shots, but Piper ripcords and whips her to a corner. Piper runs in, but into a BOOT! Thea goes up, CROSSBODY! But Piper catches her! Piper pops Thea around, for a SHOULDER BUSTER! Thea writhes and flounders to a corner. Piper runs corner to corner, but Thea avoids the CANNONBALL! Fans fire up as Thea crawls, then leaps up to get a KIMURA! Piper stays up as Thea pulls on the arm!

Piper powers Thea around, but Thea spins that to DDT!! Fans are thunderous as Thea and Piper crawl! Hot tag to Chelsea, and she drags Thea away from Jacy! But Thea avoids the elbow drop! Fans fire up, Thea slips under Chelsea to hot tag Jacy! Jacy rallies on Chelsea, DECKS Piper, then fires off on Chelsea! Fans fire up as Jacy ENZIGURIS! Piper storms in but Jacy sends her into Chelsea! Then Jacy SUPERKICKS Piper down! Jacy shrieks and CANNONBALLS Chelsea! Cover, TWO! Jacy sneers but she aims. Chelsea voids the kick, ripcords and HAYMAKERS! Underhooks, but Jacy powers out to SPINEBUSTER! High stack, PIPER BREAKS IT!

Fans rally up, Thea runs in to RAN- NO, Piper blocks, swings Thea back up, and FACEBUSTERS! Jacy KNEES Piper down! Chelsea is up to SUPER- NO, Jacy blocks! But then Chelsea blocks back!

Cover, Chelsea & Piper win!

Winners: Chelsea Green & Piper Niven, by pinfall (still WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions)

Duke is stunned, Thea is distraught, and Jacy is furious. Chase just wanted them to do this the right way, but now he’s in the wrong? But while Chelsea & Piper think they’re safe, Fyre & Dawn, now dressed as Chucky & Tiffany Valentine, wave hi to the champs. And the wheel starts to spin! Is it only a matter of time before the Unholy Union comes back for those belts?


Backstage interview with Lexis King.

McKenzie says he had a very impressive debut last week, and King welcomes her to his very first interview. Hopefully the first of many. Yes, and how pleased is he with the impact he has had so far? King says he is always pleased with his performances. And he is very pleased that his name, Lexis King, has created quite the buzz around here. See, everyone has an opinion on him. Don’t get him wrong, he’s used to that. It just comes with the territory of being a star. But one thing is for sure: this is his life, and he will do things his way. And about that impact, well just wait and see what he does next. Or better yet, what he’s already done.

What does he mean by that? Well, you’ll just have to wait and see. But wait, where is she going? They just started building their chemistry. Have some snacks. Thanks, but no thanks. Well, you do you. Will King do King all the way until he is atop NXT?


2023 NXT Women’s Breakout Tournament: Kelani Jordan VS Lola Vice w/ Elektra Lopez!

While she’s dressed as Cleopatra, the Queen of the Gym isn’t in da Nile about her skills. And the MMA Mamacita feels very much the same considering she punched and kicked her ticket to this match! But there can only be one, so who will win and Breakout?

The bell rings, the two circle and feel things out. They tie up, Lola waistlocks but Kelani switches. Kelani goes to ropes., Lola bucks the O’Conner to KICK the leg! Lola swings, Kelani dodges to headlock, but Lola powers out. Kelani tilt-o-whirls to backslide, TWO! Lola swings, Kelani blocks and slips around to trip Lola up! Cover, TWO!

NXT checks in with Meta Four.

Ruh roh, it’s really just down to Noam-Dooby-Dar. Hello, hello, is anyone there? Anyone seen the cup? Big, beautiful and it has Dar’s name on it. Tozawa!? Worst Halloween ever… Wait! There it is! Dar says it’s the best day ever! Wait, where’s Tozawa? Dar tastes it, and it’s the real deal! Dar says the cup doesn’t know what he’s been through to get her back. But he told Tozawa he would! Dar would come and get the cup every time! They are the champion! FREEDOM~! But then all the spooks show up. Dar whimpers. Hey, guys, c’mon. Whatever Tozawa is paying them, he can pay double! He can get them whatever they need! A family! A home!

But then someone snatches the cup back! It’s Tozawa! Dar says he’s done! Look at him! Please give him the cup back. Tozawa says all he wants is a Heritage Cup match. WHAT? No way! He didn’t even get a single point in the Global Heritage Invitational! The spooks shout and Dar says okay! He’s got the match! Next week! Just make it stop! Tozawa hands the cup over and Dar is happy. Dar says he’ll see Dar next week. Now go. The spooks chase Dar off into the night!

Fyre & Dawn talk backstage.

Dawn, as the Wicked Queen from Snow White, tells Fyre, who is Maleficent, that tonight, the spirits are joyous again! Shotzi & Scarlett have settled the disturbance in the other realm while they have kept the balance in this one. What a perfect night! But then Von and Stone barge in. Von told Stone that Bron will pay. Bron got his win tonight but Von wants their rematch next week! Stone tells Von that it’s great to have him back, but he can’t get that match. Von is not ready! Von doesn’t care! Stone wants Von to understand. Everything Von is doing in rehab is great, but he is just not ready yet! Von again says he doesn’t care! Stone stepped up for Von, and now Von wants to end this!

Von gets a headache and Stone asks if he is alright. Von says yeah, he’s good. He just wants the match made. Stone says okay. But is this too much too soon for Von? Or will his miraculous recovery be joined by a miraculous victory?


NXT Championship: Ilja Dragunov VS Carmelo Hayes!

The first chapter had controversy at the Great American Bash. The second chapter had no Trick at No Mercy. And now, this trilogy finishes here on Halloween Havoc! Will there be no tricks and just treats for HIM? Or will the Mad Dragon simply punctuate this rivalry with #UNBESIEGBAR?

Mr. No BS is telling Dragunov that he warned him! Keep your head on a swivel! Fans boo as refs back Corbin off. Well, we know who is next now. Will Corbin #BurnTheShips and finally be NXT Champion? Or will he just get burned by the Mad Dragon’s rage?

My Thoughts:

An awesome end to Halloween Havoc here, but I think we should’ve all expected the status quo to stay. But as I have said before, if that’s how you go with it, you gotta make it good. For the most part, NXT did that. Awesome North American Championship match but of course Rhea helps Dom retain. But hey, great to see Wes back and go right after Dom, that’ll be an awesome match for Deadline where I swear Wes better win. And very good Women’s Tag Team Championship match, but of course the Face-Heel dysfunction between Jacy and Chase costs Jacy and Thea. But at the same time, I knew Fyre & Dawn were coming for those belts, so they’ll get a great match for like, a SmackDown on the road to Survivor Series or something.

Speaking of, Fyre & Dawn taking over for Shotzi & Scarlett was an interesting move. Did Shotzi & Scarlett need to film spooky things for their YouTube series and this was the way to get them off TV to do that? But hey, great promos and costumes from Fyre & Dawn here. And I like what’s building with Andre Chase and the D’Angelos. Was there some backdoor deal cut off camera at some point? Is this gonna be mafia gag stuff like Tony helped Chase get money for the university? Well, pretty sure the tag title rematch is for Deadline, and that could go either way depending on how the story unfolds.

Great “TLS” match, with some really rough landings. Julius had a real good welt after that first ladder spot, but what a great win for the Creeds. I was a bit surprised by that, I would’ve thought Garza & Carrillo would finally get going with their new presentation, but seems they’re still waiting. Good promo from OTM to call out the Brutes, they’re going to have a good tag match at some point, even though the Brutes are building to something with Pretty Deadly on SmackDown at the same time. And decent promo Lexis King, I guess his character is arrogant yet chill. I am intrigued to see what he meant there about what he’s already done. Maybe he’s gotten HBK to already have his name in the mix for the Iron Survivor match this year?

Decent promo from Tiffany Stratton, and good attack on Fallon to “cancel” their match. Fallon’s “leg injury” might be to keep her out of the Iron Survivor talks so that she can then attack Tiffany and cost her in that match. Bron of course beat Stone, and I felt Von was gonna make the “miraculous comeback” to save Stone after. I also like that Von is still not 100% but that he is powering through. But what was really interesting about Von’s promo with Stone backstage that Boa and Dante Chen were talking. Boa still had his warpaint on, probably to help us realize it was him since it’s been so long, but I’m hoping Boa & Dante become a team since they both need something to do.

Joe Gacy had a good promo, he seems to be moving from cult leader to 90s style grunge rock loner. He even had a plaid shirt on, unbuttoned. Great stuff from Meta Four and Tozawa with this year’s haunted house bit, and of course this is giving us the Heritage Cup match of Dar VS Tozawa. I don’t think Tozawa wins but he could really push Dar to his limits, as well as the limits of the time constraints. And good vignette to give us the aftermath of Becky VS Lyra. It really is great to know the Irish wrestling scene, and even just Ireland as a country, is so happy to have seen this happen, and it definitely helps everyone else see Lyra as a star.

And of course, an amazing main event of Dragunov VS Melo. This was worth of the third in a trilogy, this was practically PPV/Premium Live Event worthy, and what a great moment for Trick to return and just scare Melo like that. Now of course Dragunov wins, and of course Corbin is next, but I’m a little disappointed Corbin attacked Dragunov as the closing moment. Not for the attack itself, but because it took us away from Trick confronting Melo. For all we knew, Trick was gonna straight up expose Melo as the one who did it. But I guess we gotta wait a week on that now.

If Melo really was the guy, then Melo VS Trick should happen at Deadline, keeping both guys out of the Iron Survivor. Well, I guess they could both be in that match to fight it out, but a match like Melo VS Trick should really be given spotlight all it’s own, lots of room for them to really explore things, no one else in the way.

My Score: 8.9/10

AEW shares footage from after Saturday Night Collision.

Eddie Kingston asks them what they want him to say. He knew this was gonna be tough. Tony Khan didn’t put any scrubs in this tournament. Eddie just maybe got too cocky, thinking that since he put two belts in the pot, he was a given winner. No one deserves to win, everything is earned. Eddie has Bryan next but he’s behind the 8 ball. Eddie says he will not do this. He will not go backwards. Humble in victory and humble in defeat. Eddie has to go heal up, Epsom salt bath, all that good stuff. The Mad King vows he will be ready for the American Dragon.

Bryan Danielson responds.

Bryan says he was actually impressed by the confidence Eddie had to put up both his titles for the tournament. But now, one loss and Eddie feels he’s behind the 8 ball? Against Bryan? Bryan fractured his orbital bone, needed surgery in two places, and yet he is coming into this tournament on fire! He is NOT behind the 8 ball, he is NOT going to be humble, he is here to win this and be the first AEW Triple Crown! Will Bryan’s Blue League start be Eddie’s Blue League end?


Tony Schiavone is backstage.

He brings up that Sting’s final match is coming. AEW Revolution, Sunday, March 3rd, 2024. And when it comes to where they’ll have Sting’s final match, they thought of the many great venues across the world, but what better place for Sting’s final match than Greensboro, North Carolina and the Greensboro Coliseum? So many great Sting matches were held there, but one in particular that comes to mind is 1988, Sting VS Ric Flair for the World Heavyweight Championship. So Greensboro Coliseum in North Carolina, get ready! Joining Schiavone now are those very legends, Sting and Ric Flair!

First off, 24-0, the longest win streak in AEW right now, what a fitting place for Sting to have his final match and maybe end on 25 than in Greensboro. Sting says yeah, wow, all those years ago, it was March 8th, 1988, his very first world title match against perhaps the greatest world champion of all time in The Nature Boy. Sting would’ve never guessed that night, 35 years later, we’d be here now. The memories, 45 minutes but a draw, commercial free, the first time in TV history that any sporting event even did that. But that’s not the real point of it. The big deal was being in there with Ric Flair. That was a make or break night, and so thank you, Ric, for putting Sting on the map.

Sting says yeah, that is a fitting place to end his career all these years later, Greensboro. Schiavone says so many great memories, and for him and Flair, forty years ago, does he remember? Oh, Flair knows. The words cannot be spoken to emphasize what is about to happen! Greensboro, where Sting, make no mistake, Ric didn’t make Sting a thing, Sting made himself! 45 MINUTES! Commercial free! With Flair! Unthinkable! Sting walked back there to 25 wrestlers going, “Jesus! You’re the man! You did it, Stinger!” He went out there and did it like a man! That’s what this business is all about.

Flair is 74 years old, standing next to the Icon, with his friend, Schiavone, and going back to Greensboro for what will be the greatest moment of his life, and God knows Flair’s had some good ones. He is honored to be there at Sting’s side! They shake hands, and Flair says the ACC Tournament and all that, nah, this is one for the ages! Highway 85 will be lined up from Richmond, all the way to Charlotte, like it always was! Sting, The Nature Boy, and AEW are coming to Greensboro! Let’s give it to ’em! “WOO~!” It’s the 80s all over again! Tickets on sale December 15th! IT’S SHOWTIME!

RJ City interviews “Timeless” Toni Storm.

Madame Storm seems rather bothered by something. RJ gets her attention but she tells him to sit. And don’t be so loud. RJ does sit, and Mariah May takes the title for Storm. RJ wants to bring up the championship acceptance speech last week. Yes, and she was rudely interrupted! Yeah, that’s true. How is she feeling? Storm says they partied well into the night, spent some time at the compound, JFK or one of the Kennedys was there. But now she is very fatigued, dehydrated, and has a touch of the gout. Oh, wow. Well, he wants to inform her that she is scheduled to defend the AEW Women’s World Championship. But given her state, is she worried at all?

Worried? Was Fatty Arbuckle worried? Was Jean Harlow worried? Was Frances bloody Farmer worried? No, they all turned out fine, and so will she. Before she goes, take off her shoe, she’s feeling swollen. RJ does take off her shoes for her, but will Storm have to focus before someone takes the title off her?


MJF is here!

Fans cheer as the AEW World Champion walks out here with the help of his cane, mic in the other hand. He has them cut his music, he gets into the ring, and the fans cheer him on. MJF gets right to it as he says “December 30th, Nassau Coliseum, Worlds End, it will be Samoa Joe VS yours truly for the grandest prize of ’em all, The Triple B, the AEW World Championship.” Fans cheer that, and MJF wants to be honest, though. When it comes to Joe as a person, eeeeeeh MJF doesn’t like him. But when it comes to Joe professional, MJF respects him.

MJF respects what Joe has done for the industry, and most importantly, when Joe came into AEW, he didn’t come here to line his pockets, he came here because he believes in those three letters. Fans cheer for “A E DUB! A E DUB!” and MJF says back in the early 2000s, MJF remembers getting a poster in his mailbox and it was for TNA Wrestling. And he remembers thinking, what even is this all about? He tuned in and couldn’t have been happier. He saw insane feats of athleticism, he saw a new cast of pro-wrestlers he’d never heard of before, but most of all, he saw one man among the rest, and that was the Samoan Submission Machine.

While Samoa Joe may’ve looked unconventional, he didn’t seem to care, and neither did any of the fans. Because every time Joe walked through the curtain, we knew he was the baddest man walking on God’s Green Earth. Now unfortunately, later on in his career, Joe’s talents were not recognized and he was not afforded the opportunity to be a world champion in the WWE. Fans boo, but MJF says what Joe did for this sport was bigger than that. “Joe proved you don’t have to be a massive male model bodybuilder to be a top guy in this sport. Samoa Joe broke the mold. Samoa Joe proved alternatives matter.

“And because of the road that Joe paved, it has allowed for a man like me to stand before you today. Without a guy like Joe, there may be no AEW. So Joe, very quickly, what I’d like to say, as much as this all pains me to admit, thank you.” Fans cheer that and join in, “Thank You, Joe! Thank You, Joe!” Yes, thank you, Joe! However… MJF has actually, though grateful to have gone down the road Joe paved, MJF isn’t too shabby himself, now is he? Fans cheer that. MJF managed to pave his own road, and built on a new alternative. He is AEW day one, and he has helped build this place brick by brick! Fans cheer “M J F! M J F!”

MJF says he did that by defeating some of the biggest names in this industry! Names like Cody Rhodes, CM Punk, Bryan Danielson, Chris Jericho, Jon Moxley, Kenny Omega. But of all the names MJF has had to face in this ring, the one name he looks back on, and not only was he lucky to win, he was lucky to survive, that is Joe. Samoa Joe is a wrestling legend. But December 30th is not about Joe’s legacy. It’s about MJF’s! December 30th is about answering the question, “Can Max Friedman outlast the Final Boss of this sport one more time?” So now, MJF is gonna make a promise. He promises to everyone watching at home and everyone here in this arena.

MJF promises that on December 30th, it doesn’t matter if his left knee keeps sliding in and out, if his right hip keeps popping in and out of socket, if his right shoulder is hanging on by a threat, or if Joe beats him within an inch of his life. Joe could be King Kong and Godzilla incarnate. Because MJF promises that on December 30th, he shows the world that it is not about the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog! And if you want to take what’s his… at Worlds End, you’ll have to put MJF down! MJF even breaks his cane!! Fans fire up with MJF, but then the lights go down.

Now there are lights blinking all over the place. MJF looks around, but THE DEVIL’S MINIONS ATTACK! Fans boo as one of them has a baseball bat!! But here comes Joe!! Joe said he’d have MJF’s back so here he is! He YANKS the big guy out, gets that bat, and he runs the rest off! Cameras have trouble here, but when things come back, a message types out on screen. “In the shadows, our game begins. Next week, MJF & Samoa Joe… will you face the unknown in a tag match? Are you a hero, Max?” The Devil has made his challenge to the champ! The fans chant “DO IT! DO IT!” and “He’s Our Scumbag!” Joe tries to get MJF to ignore all this, it’s what this Devil wants!

But MJF says “I’m so sick of your Scooby-Doo BS! LEMME EXPLAIN SOMETHING TO YOU! I am not dealing with your crap when I got that guy breathing down my neck at Worlds End. No no. I am going to take out all of your men, one by one. I am going to unmask you, you coward! And next week, you wanna tag match?! YOU’RE ON!!” Joe isn’t for it, but the challenge has been accepted. Will Joe just have to save MJF from himself?


Wardlow VS AR Fox!

Speaking of someone who wants to take everything away from MJF, the War Dog is on the warpath, just waiting for the right moment. After what we just saw, is MJF going to be served up on a silver platter?

But wait! Fox BOOTS Wardlow down off the apron! And then FLIES out! But Wardlow stays up! So Fox FLIES again! Direct hit but Wardlow is still up! Wardlow HEADBUTTS Fox, then whips him at the apron. Fox 619s on the apron to hit back! And then he goes up the corner to MOONSAULT, but Wardlow catches him! SLAM on the apron, and then Wardlow box jumps up to the apron. Wardlow storms in, fans rally up, and Wardlow drags Fox up for an OVERHEAD BELLY2BELLY! Now with both men in the ring, the bell finally sounds and this is actually a match. Wardlow storms up on Fox in the corner, to then TOSS him across the way!

Fox flounders out of the ring and Wardlow is having fun now. Wardlow goes out to stalk Fox, CLUB him on the back, and the ring count climbs. Wardlow hauls Fox up to TOSS him back in! Fans rally, Wardlow storms back in, and Wardlow drags Fox up. Fox shoves Wardlow but Wardlow CLUBS him! Wardlow trophy lifts, but Fox slips free! Wardlow runs in, but only gets buckles as Fox slips out to the apron! Fox swings to dropkick, then he goes up to 450 SPLASH! Cover, ONE!! Wardlow snarls and Fox is stunned! Fox runs in to BOOT! Wardlow doesn’t budge so Fox BOOTS him again! And again! Fox runs, but Wardlow pops him up for a SPINEBUSTER!

Wardlow winds up, to LARIAT Fox down! Wardlow then hauls Fox up, POWERBOMB! The symphony begins as fans want more! Wardlow drags Fox up, reels him back in, another POWERBOMB! And then Wardlow goes up the corner, to SWANTON BOMB!! Fans fire up and Wardlow still isn’t done! He reels Fox back in, to LAST RIDE POWERBOMB!!! The ref checks, Fox is OUT! Wardlow wins!

Winner: Wardlow, by pinfall

The remixed Powerbomb Symphony was too much for Fox, and Wardlow storms off. When and where will Wardlow sink his teeth into MJF?

Backstage interview with Action & Top Flight.

Renee is with them and congratulates them on the big win. So good to see Dante back, how is that leg? But then Penta El Zero Miedo and Alex Abrahantes step in. Penta offers a fist bump, and Dante accepts. They’re all good given Penta was responsible for the broken leg in that Reach for the Sky Ladder match. But then Penta counts, one, two, three. Bring ’em in. Komander and El Hijo Del Vikingo join Penta, that makes one, two, three. And Cero Miedo! Dante nods, when and where will we see this top tier trios match go down?


AEW TBS Championship House Rules Match: Julia Hart VS Emi Sakura!

The Princess of the Black Throne successfully defended her gold on Collision against Lady Frost, but now she takes on the Queen of Joshi! And for this match, Dealer’s Choice says submissions can NOT win the match! Then if Julia can’t be Hartless, will she just have to be ruthless?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see if the House Always Wins!

The bell rings and fans rally up behind Julia. Julia soaks it up, but Emi laughs at it. Emi and Julia smirk as they stare down, then they approach. Emi dodges Julia and laughs some more, but then Julia grabs her by the face! Julia bumps Emi off buckles, fires off forearms and stomps, then whips corner to corner. Julia runs in, handsprings and clotheslines! Julia keeps moving, back body block! Julia snapmares Emi, KICKS her, but Emi just frowns. Fans fire up, and Emi stands up. Julia CHOPS but Emi CHOPS! And CHOPS! And CHOPS! Julia shrieks, but Emi pushes her around. Emi aims but Julia blocks the chop to WRING the arm!

Fans fire up and the ref checks Julia as Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Emi stands on Julia’s face, the ref reprimands, but Emi steps away. She has to be careful, part of House Rules is that disqualifications are strongly enforced. Emi then takes a seat on security’s lap before she storms up on Julia. Emi brings Julia around to CHOP against railing! Then Emi brings Julia over to send into more railing, and CHOP again! Emi puts Julia in the ring, drags her around and dragon sleepers! TWISTING DDT! Cover, TWO! Julia is still in this but Emi pushes her to a corner.

Emi waits on Julia to sit up, says she’ll be the champion, and then underhooks again!

Emi rolls, pops out the back, and she hooks Julia’s legs up! ROMERO SPECIAL! Julia endures, then Emi THROWS her down! Emi drags Julia around, puts her in a drop zone, but fans still rally for Julia. Emi climbs, MOONSAULT FLOPS as Julia moves! Julia wraps on the HARTLESS LOCK!! But it won’t win! Emi flails, taps, but it doesn’t save Emi, either! Julia thrashes Emi, lets her go, and the ref has to remind Julia it’s her own rules. So Julia BLINDSIDE LARIATS!

Julia stomps Emi into the drop zone, then goes up the corner. MOONSAULT!! Cover, Julia wins!

Winner: Julia Hart, by pinfall (still AEW TBS Champion)

Another defense in the books, Julia is still golden! Will she keep on winning with such unpredictable rules?


Backstage interview with Mariah May.

RJ City is with Miss May and says we saw her at Full Gear and last week, but we also know she’s here, hungry for more. Mariah says yes she is. She knows she’s the new girl and all, but she did just come from Stardom, and she had quite the run. She is dying to show us what she can do. So thanks for connecting her with Toni Storm. RJ says it’s nothing, he and Toni go way back, used to play squash together. No, really, RJ is quite the curator. And Mariah knows Toni likes him, so this means the world to her. No, no, Toni makes things happen. He’s just happy to help. Mariah seems a bit disappointed, but RJ says without further ado, go get ’em!

Mariah knocks on Tony Khan’s door, steps inside, and talks with the boss. Will this Tony be just as accommodating as Toni Storm?


Christian Cage is here!

The TNT Champion, the Patriarch, makes his way to the ring, security right behind him. Captain Charisma then gets a mic while the fans boo, and he says what he’d like to do right now is go ahead and invite the Rated R Superstar to this ring right now. Fans fire up for that, and Christian says he knows Edge is back there. Fans shout “ADAAAAM~!” and Christian says he just wants to talk about what Edge said on Collision. So if Edge doesn’t mind making his presence felt, Christian would appreciate it. But still no response? Did Christian make sure to do this when Edge isn’t here?

Christian waits, gets upset, and asks Adam “ADAAAM~!” that he’d like to speak with him in this ring. Please, someone, hit the mic, get Adam’s attention, something. Or should Christian go back there to speak with him? “You think you know him.” And here comes Edge!! Fans fire up as Edge storms into the ring, and of course the security becomes a wall in front of Christian. Edge paces and Christian says listen, management wanted this, not him. Fans boo that garbage, but Christian says they don’t need security. He asks these men to vacate the ring. They shrug and bail out, even though Edge looks ready to pounce.

Christian brings up that last week, Edge challenged him to a match for the TNT Championship on December 6th, Dynamite in Montreal. Christian is here to tell Edge that they won’t make it to Montreal. They get face to face and fans fire up. Christian says they won’t make it to Montreal because “I’m sorry.” What? Edge is also confused, and Christian says he knows what we’re all thinking. Christian is only sorry because he’s all alone, right? Fans confirm and they chant “BULL~ SHID!” at him! Christian asks them to understand. Edge took out “The Prodigy” Nick Wayne, he took out Killswitch/Luchasaurus, but that’s not why Christian’s sorry.

He won’t lie, he was pissed about what Edge did to Lucha- er, Killswitch, with not one but two Con-Chair-Tos. Christian was so mad, he jumped out of his house, got in his car and just drove around. He needed to think, needed fresh air. And somewhere during that trip, it turned into one of reflection. It turned into a roadtrip of soul searching, digging down deep, trying to understand why he became the person that he is, this guy who says and does such unsavory things. And then he remembered those times he and Edge would borrow Christian’s mom’s Ford Taurus. They nicknamed it “Toby the Taurus” because they took it everywhere when they were trying to make it.

They didn’t care where they went, they were broke, not a dime to their names, but they didn’t care. They were having the time of their lives! They knew they were gonna make it. They didn’t know how, but they knew they would. And dammit, did they ever make it, huh? They went on to become multiple-time tag team champions, and Christian will say it, the greatest tag team that ever lived! Fans do cheer that. Christian and Edge then became multiple time world champions, two of the greatest careers in this sport. But take the wrestling away, and it runs even deeper. Everyone knows Edge grew up with a single mom. Everyone knows that Edge didn’t have a father figure.

Fans boo, already sensing where this is going! Christian wants Edge to listen! Yes, he is the Patriarch of AEW, but in no way is he suggesting he’s Edge’s father. Christian is Edge’s brother. And in turn, Christian’s father became like Edge’s father. Edge went on family trips, sat at the dinner table, slept over! When Edge needed discipline, Christian’s dad treated him the same as his own kids. He picked Edge up, brushed him off, hugged him and cheered him on. To this very day, he is still Edge’s biggest fan. So listen, Christian will just say it. They weren’t just random guys thrown together. “I love you, man.” Fans boo that one!

Christian says they’re family. And listen, when Edge’s mom passed a few years ago, that was the hardest time of Edge’s life. Christian knows that. But some time before, she said, “What I wouldn’t give to see you guys in that ring, teaming one last time.” Christian started thinking, that they should do this for her! Let’s go on the journey together again, like Edge wanted! Edge & Christian, for Judy “Judemeister” Copeland! Let’s do it for her! Fans cheer for Judy, but Edge is conflicted. Christian drops the mic, holds the belt, and then rushes Edge! Edge LOW BLOWS Christian first!! Fans cheer as Christian leans on Edge in pain.

Christian slumps down and Edge lets him fall. Fans want that one more time, but Edge gets the mic. “Nice try, dumbass.” Edge tells him to sit up when he’s talking. Edge grabs the belt, tells Christian to shine it up real nice. Hell, sleep with it if he wants. Because next week, the title’s coming home with Edge! Oh, and one more thing, Edge almost forgot. G F Y!! Fans are thunderous as Edge takes his leave. Will Edge crush Christian’s spirit as payback for everything he’s said and done?


AEW Continental Classic, Gold League: Jay White VS Swerve Strickland!

The Switchblade and the Realest are both 1-0 with three points, and now they are going to battle in what could be the decisive battle in this block! With no Juice Robinson, no Ass Boys, no Prince Nana or Brian Cage, who will prove to be the slipperiest snake in all of AEW?

The bell rings and fans fire up for “Whose House?” “SWERVE’S HOUSE!” White still throws guns up, but he and Swerve then tie up. They go around, Swerve puts White in a corner, but White turns it around. Swerve turns it back around, White pulls hair to turn it around again, then he RAMS into Swerve! And again! And again!

Swerve pushes White around, goes up the apron, and then he FLYING STOMPS White down! Fans fire up, Swerve puts White in, and then aims from the apron. But White gets a leg in the ropes! Swerve claws at White, pushes him away, but White BOOTS Swerve, then DRAPING DDTS! Fans rally for Swerve but White drags Swerve up to CHOP! Fans “WOO~!” and Dynamite goes picture in picture.

White sits Swerve up again, to CHOP him back down! White drags Swerve up again, goes up a corner, and mocks Swerve, to then hop back down and CHOP again! Swerve writhes, White drags him up, and White TOSSES Swerve out of the ring. White goes out after Swerve, but he CHOPS back! Swerve then clinches to hit a BACKBREAKER! White writhes, Swerve goes up to the apron again, and he BOOTS White back down! Fans rally up, Swerve drags White into the ring, and then clamps on a cording hold. White grabs ropes, the ref counts, Swerve takes a swing, but White EXPLODERS Swerve up and out!

White goes out after Swerve, hauls him up, and APRON GOURD BUSTERS! Swerve writhes and flounders but White refreshes the ring count. White then RAMS Swerve into steel steps! Swerve gets in the ring, White pursues and covers, TWO! White clamps onto Swerve’s bad arm, then traps the other, and he stretches Swerve out as Dynamite returns to single picture. Swerve fights up, but White throws him down by hair! White again mocks the chant, “Whose House?” Bryan commends Swerve on toughness. He had a brutal Texas Deathmatch with Hangman Page, and the only thing taped up is that arm.

Speaking of, White clamps onto the arms again, but Swerve endures. Swerve fights up, throws body shots, but White throws him down by his hair! Fans boo, Swerve gets up to SLAP White! Swerve CHOPS, White waistlocks, but Swerve swings elbows. White gets under to SAIDO! White then storms up to drag Swerve up, CORNER HALF HATCH! Cover, TWO! Swerve is still in this but White scuffs him. White mockingly says he needs his points. White knees Swerve low, and again, but Swerve blocks the chop! Swerve wrenches, gets around, HAMMERLOCK BACK SUPLEX! White writhes and fans fire up!

Swerve snarls, storms up on White, and he ROCKS him! Body shot! Forearm! Body shot! Repeat! Swerve snapmares, rolls, but White catches the Complete Shot, but then Swerve slips out of the Urenage! Swerve goes to a corner, White runs in but Swerve goes up and over to O’Conner and Eddy Gordo RANA! White tumbles, staggers, into the SOMERSAULT COMPLETE SHOT! And then a gator roll into a deadlift suplex! Fans fire up as Swerve covers, TWO!! White survives and Swerve grows frustrated. Fans still rally up behind Swerve, and he grabs White’s wrist. White resists but Swerve still drags him up.

White reaches out, kicks Swerve’s legs, then gets free. White swings, Swerve dodges and comes back, COMPLETE SHOT from White! White then waistlocks to deadlift GERMAN SUPLEX! White runs up, but Swerve DISCUS LARIATS! Fans are thunderous while both men are down and Bryan says, “How incredible are these two men?!” A standing count starts, both men stir, and White flounders to ropes. “This is Awesome!” as White comes back, he and Swerve go forehead to forehead, and they trade junkyard dog headbutts. Swerve laughs, White throws hands! Swerve throws them back! They go back and forth, faster and faster!

Fans rally up as the shots keep flying, and Swerve DECKS White! Fans fire up, Swerve smiles, but White grabs at Swerve’s legs. Swerve grabs at White, White CHOP BLOCKS! White then gets the bad arm, clinches, and URENAGES! Cover, TWO!! Swerve is still in this, this isn’t anything compared to Texas Death!

Swerve fights up, fights the sleeper, and hits an ELBOW BREAKER! But White still rolls Swerve up with his other arm! TWO! White storms up, Swerve trips and jackknife bridges, TWO!! BLADE- NO, Swerve slips free, but White fights the half nelson! And CHOPS!

Swerve CHOPS back! White CHOPS! We get the 15 minute mark, so time’s ticking away! Swerve CHOPS, White CHOPS, repeat! White kicks and CHOPS, then reels Swerve in. Swerve uses a leg to get free but White has him again, SNAP SLEEPER SUPLEX!! Then the clinch, BLADE- ARM-DRAG!! Cradle cover, SWERVE WINS!!!

Winner: Swerve Strickland, by pinfall (gains 3 points; White earns 0)

White is shocked that he got beat! The #Jay1 aside, these points go to The Realest! Will the Gold League soon be whose house?

My Thoughts:

A great Dynamite, with awesome Continental Classic matches. But also really good non-tournament matches, such as that Trios Match. Great return to action for Dante Martin, great win for him and his trio, and those three could really build themselves up into trios title contenders with matches like this. And really good TBS Championship match Julia and Emi, though they need to get better at bringing up how House Rules work. No Ropebreaks, the ring count is to 20, and there’s Dealer’s Choice. They just kinda threw out there that this was gonna be a No Submission Falls, which was honestly a brilliant move by Emi. But in the end, of course Julia wins, it’s still too early for her to lose this belt.

Wardlow squashing- heck, he demolished AR Fox, is fine for Wardlow but a shame for Fox. Wardlow is still staying strong as he waits for the right moment to go after MJF again, but maybe, just maybe, he’s been going after MJF all along as that big guy among the “gimp squad” that tried to get MJF tonight. Great promo from MJF to not just praise Joe but also bury Punk without having to actually reference Punk going back to WWE. Joe made the save as expected, and now they’re getting dragged into a tag match against any two of those goons, and who knows who they are really, but can’t wait to see how this all goes.

Awesome stuff from Christian and Edge tonight, a brilliant move for Christian to so blatantly play to Edge’s emotions just to save his own ass. But of course it was also brilliant for Edge to not fall for it at all and get the better of Christian. But uh, AEW needs to be better at live censoring their shows, that GFY got right past them. That aside, that TNT Championship match is going to be awesome stuff, could go either way, but I still want to see Luchasaurus betray Christian and finally become his own man-dinosaur. Not Jack Perry’s tag partner, not Christian’s henchman, but his own man doing his own stuff.

And as I said at the start, awesome Continental Classic matches. Bryan Danielson also being on commentary for these was a good move, that could easily be a thing he does after he retires, except I think part of retiring is staying home with the family. Anyway, Moxley VS Lethal was a great opening match, and I figured Moxley would win that. Maybe Lethal realizes he really has let Team Triple J weaken him with all their antics. Rush VS Briscoe then raised the bar, though with a somewhat scary moment where I thought Rush took a shot to the head but it was really a concern for his leg. Rush winning was a fair choice, and that puts pressure on a possible 0-2 VS 0-2, Lethal VS Briscoe in the next round. I say “possible” because Tony Khan doesn’t reveal the entire schedule at once.

And then just an awesome, borderline PPV level match of Swerve VS White. The fans were strongly behind Swerve, I was behind Swerve, so it’s great to see Swerve get to 2-0. Swerve’s becoming my top choice for Gold League and maybe even the entire thing. Swerve having the ROH World, NJPW Strong Openweight and the AEW Continental Championships, he could really do a lot with traveling between the three brands. Mogul Embassy is already in ROH given they’re ROH World Six Man Champions, and the Gates are in NJPW right now for World Tag League, so Swerve joining them pretty much everywhere, all four of them having belts, that’s great stuff to me.

My Score: 9/10

Time Limit Draw (both teams earn 1 point)

An incredible battle pushes both teams to their limits, but also pushes this to the time limit! The fans applaud both teams for giving it their all. And in the end, the teams shake hands again. But with no winners, there’s no closing address! The luchadores bow in thanks to all the fans, Bishamon wave good night, and they all head out. A draw is better than a loss, but will just getting one point this round come back to bite someone later on?


Here are the NEW B Block standings!

Alex Zayne & Lance Archer: 4-0, 8 points
Taichi & Yuya Uemura: 3-1, 6 points
Atlantis Jr. y Soberano Jr: 2-1-1, 5 points
Yota Tsuji & Zandokan Jr: 2-2, 4 points
ELP & Hikuleo: 2-2, 4 points
Bishamon: 1-2-1, 3 points
Bad Luck Fale & Jack Bonza: 1-3, 2 points
Yuji Nagata & Minoru Suzuki: 0-4, 0 points

My Thoughts:

A great round for B Block, with some real surprising results, too. Did not think Rogue Army would get their first win here, because I thought Tsuji & Zando were going to continue on pretty strong. Less surprised that Suzuki & Nagata still haven’t won, only because they were up against the NJPW Strong Openweight Tag Team Champions. ELP & Leo can’t lose too much, they’d be owing title shots all over the place. Then great stuff with Monster Sauce getting a big win over Taichi & Yuya, and a great move in the main event. Going for a time limit draw on a half hour match is a bit tricky, though, because things dragged a little in the middle to drag it out. But a draw is also a great way to keep Bishamon from owing more title matches while still not winning so as not to hurt Team CMLL.

My Score: 8.8/10
