Hangman Page speaks.
The Cowboy paces around while he says, “It’s a shame, it’s a damn shame, when you think about it really, Swerve. The things you could’ve done. At WrestleDream, it took Nana, it took his crown, but you had me beat. You could’ve taken my spot, you could’ve challenged for the world championship, but what you decided to do instead is the biggest mistake you have ever made in your sad, pathetic and meaningless life. Swerve, when you opened the door and crossed the threshold into my home, you stepped into the gates of Hell. And at Full Gear, I take you down. I take you down into the fiery abyss for eternity! Because at Full Gear, you’ve got The Hangman in a TEXAS DEATH MATCH!”
And if Hangman has to give one piece of advice in this next week, take some time to walk around Swerve’s House. Look at every photo on the wall. Look at the pictures of your mom, your dad, your kids, your nephews and nieces, cousins, aunts, uncles. Imagine every single precious moment that you could’ve had with them, from birthdays to proms to weddings to funerals, and know that he will never be there. Not while he can walk. Not while he can talk. Swerve, at Full Gear, Hangman takes you to the bottom of that abyss, leaves you in fire for eternity, and know that every November, Hangman and his son will visit, and piss on Swerve’s grave. And on the tombstone it will ready, “Swerve Strickland: What Could’ve Been.”
The Cowboy isn’t just ready for #CowboyShid, he is ready to end someone’s career! Will Swerve wish he’d never entered Hangman’s house?

So Big Bill, Ricky Starks, at Full Gear, the Kings of the Black Throne are coming for the AEW Tag Team Championships.” Whoa, are we looking at a Triple Threat?
Julia Hart then tells Willow Nightingale and Skye Blue that they keep rejecting her gift. She’s not sure what to make of that. She’s also not sure what to make of Kris Statlander always getting involved. So how about this? Tonight, if Julia beats Willow, Kris has to give her a rematch for the TBS Championship at Full Gear. Will it be true that the House Always Wins?
Backstage interview with Kris Statlander and Willow Nightingale.
Lexi Nair is with the TBS Champion and the Babe with the Power, and she points out that Kris is on the road to Full Gear, where she will be in a championship Triple Threat against winners of two title eliminators! Tonight is Willow VS Julia, and then next week, Friday Night Collision, Red Velvet VS Skye Blue. What are Kris’ thoughts on this developing title picture?

As far as Skye VS Red, no comment from the champ. Willow says she’ll handle her business. Full Gear here we come! Will the 2023 Queen of Harts be able to trump Julia Hart and earn her spot in that Triple Threat?

It is a round robin tournament, just as fans have wanted to see, where 12 of AEW’s best compete weekly across North America. The tournament kicks off November 22 in Chicago, and continuing into Collision and Rampage for Thanksgiving Weekend in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
Then they’re going to Minneapolis, Minnesota, and to Erie, Pennsylvania, and Montreal, Quebec, a return to Texas, and then Oklahoma City, San Antonio, and finally, the sixth and final week, Orlando, Florida, December 27th! Then AEW Worlds End, December 30th, we crown THE Continental Classic Champion on PPV! And against all odds, even with this start just weeks away, it is official! The first man in the Continental Classic will be… BRYAN DANIELSON! Bryan says he may not look ready, but this is the kind of tournament he has wanted to do his entire career. And no better place to do it than in AEW, with the best wrestlers in the world and Tony Khan booking the shows!
There is NOTHING that will stop Bryan from coming back and being int he Continental Classic! They’re all fired up to put on the best wrestling tournament EVER! Who else will join Bryan in that 12 man tournament? Who will make it to the end that is Worlds End?

Bill agrees, they don’t wanna see these teams, they don’t wanna talk to these teams, or ever get in ring with them. You come up to them at the coffee bar in catering, make small talk, the champs will skedaddle. So just don’t, okay? They don’t wanna talk or see any of them ever, and sure as hell aren’t wrestling them.
But uh, funny thing is, Tony Khan has now made it a Fatal 4 Way for Full Gear. WHAT!? How does she know that before them!? This is so ridiculous! This is a situation they will have to handle off camera. But that’s so funny that everyone else knows before Ricky & Bill. Story of their lives! But just like how this seems to open every chapter of their lives, they know how to finish the story. And it will end with Ricky & Bill still the AEW World Tag Team Championships. You can have friendship for 10, 20 YEARS, it does not matter when it comes to the two baddest dudes here in this company coming together to be the longest reigning tag team champions ever!
The Absolute & The Human Skyscraper are ready, even with the odds stacked against them. Will they use those odds against the other teams to stand tall at the end of Full Gear?
“Powerhouse” Will Hobbs w/ The Don Callis Family VS ?
The Giant, Paul Wight, is on commentary for this one given the 8 Man Street Fight that’s coming on Dynamite. Will Wight see with his own eyes just how dangerous the Book of Hobbs can be? Or will it still not measure up to the Big Show?
The bell rings and Hobbs immediately SPLASHES ? in the corner! ? falls over, Hobbs hauls him up and scoops, to put him on the top rope. Hobbs CLUBS away, with both hands! Then he shoves ? down and tells Wight to pay attention. Hobbs says this is what Wight used to be! Wight laughs that off, and then Hobbs turns around, into a DORPKICK! ? runs, but Hobbs SPINEBUSTERS him down for it! Hobbs scoops, for the WORLD’S STRONGEST SLAM!! Cover, Hobbs wins!
Winner: “Powerhouse” Will Hobbs, by pinfall
Wight says you may not like Don Callis, which Wight doesn’t, but Hobbs is impressive. But Wight has been in the ring with an Animal, a Viper, a Texas Rattlesnake, and a guy you can’t even see. Hobbs has no idea what he’s in store for.
But then Callis gets the mic and he says, “I have one thing to say.” Wight doubts that. Callis says that “the Don Callis Family is the greatest family in the history of professional wrestling! Greater than the Briscoes! Greater than the Gagnes! Greater than the Von Erichs! And bigger than The Harts! In just a few short days, the Family will be involved in the Like a Dragon Street Fight on Dynamite. Give ya a history lesson: not too long ago, Will Hobbs BROKE Chris Jericho!
“So what’d Jericho do? Like the bloodsucking, narcissistic sociopath that he is, Jericho found the last friend he had after I deserted him! And he picked up the phone and he called the last friend he could call! Who just happens to be the biggest man in professional wrestling, Mr. Paul Wight. And Paul Wight is a stand-up guy, so when Chris called, I’m sure Paul, you said, ‘Anything you need, my friend.'” Wight confirms that is true. Callis says knowing Wight, he might’ve won the genetic lottery when it comes to physical size, no doubt about it. But Callis is sure he got shortchanged in the brain department.
“Because only a blithering idiot would face the Don Callis Family after what we’ve done to Jericho, Omega and Ibushi. Much less in a Like a Dragon Street Fight. But Paul, you’re a smart guy. It’s not too late. You can still change your mind. You and I both know what Jericho is: he’s a wood tick. He’s a narcissistic psychopath, he’s gonna use you like he tried to use me! So Paul… If I can be serious just for a minute…” He and Hobbs exit the ring. Callis says Paul is smart and Callis is a big fan. IT’s not too late to pull the pin and leave Jericho hanging. Nothing? Wow, Callis saw something he never thought he’d see: a scared giant.
It’s okay to be scared of them, because they run things here! Maybe Callis will do something here. He buried two giants in his career, and Hobbs can do a third. “Hobbs, smoke this fool!!” Schiavone and Nigel get aside, but then Wight tosses the table at Hobbs! Both big men dare the other to do something, but then Callis and Kyle Fletcher have Hobbs stand down. There’s no backing down, no backing out. Will both teams tear the Toyota Arena down just days before Full Gear?
Backstage interview with FTR.
Lexi is with the Top Guys and says they’ve been on quite the roll. Last week’s Collision 8 Man Tag, and then last night on Rampage’s main event. But then House of Black did have to interrupt things. How have they been doing? Cash says yes, they have been on a roll. But don’t forget that LFI then left them to get beat down. Don’t forget that “Lil’ Rick” and Big Bill took advantage of injured FTR to take those tag titles. Don’t forget that the House again sticks their noses in FTR’s business, and that doesn’t sit well with FTR.
Dax adds that ten time world tag team champions, #7StarFTR, there’s only one of them. But it doesn’t matter about the distractions, their one goal, their one focus, is to again be AEW World Tag Team Champions. So it doesn’t matter if it’s LFI, it doesn’t matter if it’s House of Black, FTR’s road to the titles for a third time starts now. #TopGuysOut.
Six Man Tag: Darby Allin, Sting & Adam “Edge” Copeland VS Lance Archer & The Righteous w/ Jake “The Snake” Roberts!
This will be the first outing of the “Rated Relentless Icons,” and they’re sure up against some tough competition. The Murderhawk Monster just knocked out the security guards around ringside, and there’s still ol’ Dutch & Vincent! Will #EverybodyDie, dig what they’re sayin’? Or will the star studded trio be rolling towards their grudge match with Christian Cage’s crew?
The trios sort out and Edge starts against Dutch. Oakland says “This is Awesome!” already as the two tie up. Dutch throws Edge down and laughs. Edge stands up to ROCK Dutch with forearm after forearm! Edge runs, LARIATS, but Dutch stays up. Dutch smiles, Edge LARIATS again! Then Edge ducks ‘n’ dodges to CLOBBER Dutch!

Darby eggs Vincent on and the fans rally behind Darby. Vinnie steps up, knuckle locks, and then he kicks the arm! Vinnie HEADBUTTS Darby down, drags him up, and wrenches. Archer tags himself in, and he takes the arm to go up the corner. Darby slips away, and Sting tags in! Fans are all fired up as Sting and Archer circle. Archer copies the “WOO~!” so Sting shows him how it’s done. It’s a howl off! Archer swings, Sting dodges to fire off hands! Sting ROCKS Archer again, then BLASTS The Righteous! Sting BOOTS Archer, reels him in and goes to a corner to clothesline him up and out!
Fans fire up with Sting and Sting heads out after Archer, and then Darby rushes over to intercept Vinnie! Edge goes after Dutch, too, as Collision goes picture in picture.
Sting sends Archer into railing, Edge & Darby take down The Righteous, and it’s a brawl all around ringside! Fans fire up as Vinnie hits railing, and then Darby HEADBUTTS! Sting brings Archer around, Edge runs up on Dutch to throw more hands, and Sting RAMS Archer into more railing! Edge RAMS Dutch into the apron, Darby CHOPS Vinnie! Sting grabs a chair! Edge keeps the ref distracted so Sting can SMACK Archer on the back! Jake asks what the heck, though it’s not like he wouldn’t do the very same thing. Sting brings Archer back around to RAM into steel steps! Sting stares Jake down while Archer stumbles and falls.
Sting brings Archer back up, kicks him low, and then throws hands. Sting keeps Archer against railing as he fires off more shots, then he brings Archer back. The ref reprimands and wants this in the ring already, but Sting is having too much bringing Archer around. Sting RAMS Archer into railing! Sting puts Archer back in, and Collision goes to break.
Collision returns, Vinnie has Sting on the ropes, and he stands Sting up to ROCK with a haymaker. Sting hits back but Vinnie fires body shots. Vinnie climbs up in the corner to BITE Sting! Fans boo but Vinnie lets off. Darby protests, the ref has him calm down, and Vinnie says, “Dig what I’m saying?!” Sting staggers, Vinnie ROCKS him and puts him in the corner.

Winners: Darby Allin, Sting & Adam “Edge” Copeland, by pinfall
This was a wild match before the PPV, and it will only get wilder at Full Gear! But speaking of that match, here come Christian Cage, Luchasaurus & Nick Wayne! Captain Charisma, His Right Hand of Destruction and his honorary son stare down Edge, Sting & Darby, and then the TNT Champion raises his title up. Will the self-proclaimed Father of the Year lead his family to victory? Or will they all face the consequences at the hands of those they betrayed?
A great Collision here with a lot added to Full Gear. Just as I was sensing last night on Rampage, there was a big tag title match in the works and here it is, it will be a Fatal 4 Way! LFI had a really good match with Workhorsemen to get a good win, and then House of Black calls LFI out like they did FTR last night. Great promo from Starks & Bill to set up that match, and a Fatal 4 is a great way to get the titles off Starks & Bill without really hurting Starks & Bill, but also a great way to keep the titles on Starks & Bill without making any of the other teams look bad.
And they are also putting the TBS Championship on Full Gear, as I was hoping last night, so that’s great. Julia VS Willow was a great match, though something felt off about how they did the finish. Julia winning does still make sense, but maybe her falling on her butt to get out of the bomb was a botch. And with Skye Blue VS Red Velvet being next, it is definitely going to be Skye getting into the Triple Threat so that Skye can settle things with Julia while also addressing this thing where she’s no longer Kris’s friend. Much like with the tag title Fatal 4, this Triple Threat is a great way to take the title off Kris without hurting her. And I keep it at that because it feels like someone, whether it’s Skye or Julia, is going to get that title off Kris in order to escalate this story.
Great opening match from Andrade VS Garcia, and as they did last week, they used the opening promos to help segue into the match. Andrade of course wins and has CJ as his manager, which brings this around to Miro VS Andrade, as I figured because that’s logical. Great match from Strong VS Darius, and I appreciate that while he’s Heel, Strong didn’t cheat to win. And then Kingdom does the Heel stuff by beating up on Darius, bringing Action out, and we’re probably getting a rematch of Kingdom VS Darius & Action, maybe even on the Full Gear Zero Hour. As I said last night, maybe, just maybe, Roddy & The Kingdom have been The Devil and his thugs, but I bet The Devil’s identity is exposed at Full Gear one way or another.
Good stuff from the Don Callis Family, and I even liked how we just never got that jobber’s name. Callis has a good promo to call out Wight, great confrontation between Hobbs and Wight, and that 8 Man Street Fight is going to be wild. Though really, it should be thought of as 4v5 because Callis will still get involved when there’s no rules stopping him. Maybe someone helps on Kenny Omega’s side to counter Callis. And then a really good, really aggressive promo from Hangman, with him upping the ante for his rematch with Swerve, just as I’d hoped. Texas Deathmatch seems to be the go-to what with Ricky Starks and Bryan Danielson doing one not too long ago.
Speaking of which, good promo from Bryan and Tony Khan to set up AEW’s round robin answer to NJPW’s G1 Climax. Bryan better be careful, though, he still has to make it through 2023. Plus, he wants to face Okada at WrestleKingdom, he can’t go and get hurt again to put that match off. Great stuff out of Castle VS Wayne, with Castle looking great but only losing because of Christian & Luchasaurus being distractions at ringside. Castle is great so it’s good he got to look great, even when being cheated.
And an awesome Six Man main event, though it felt like it dragged on a bit. Naturally, the Faces won, and naturally, Christian and his team came out for a final stare down, even with another Collision before Full Gear next Friday. As it stands, I’m pretty sure Nick Wayne takes the loss for the Heels, and it feels like Edge will be the one getting the pin on him. Then we can have this turn into Edge VS Christian, probably for the TNT Championship at Worlds End. And with some time before The Continental Classic, I bet the win at Full Gear helps Darby get a spot in that so he can also be part of that wild six week tournament.
My Score: 8.8/10

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?

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!

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?

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

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?

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.

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.

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.

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?
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

Nothing too crazy, nothing too wild, this tournament only just got started. The only disappointing point is that they could not get Bryan “cleared to compete” Saturday night. Not sure how much of that is shoot given the bad eye, but this was kinda the problem of wanting him in the tournament over tons of other choices. Bryan wants to face Okada for WrestleKingdom 18, how is Bryan supposed to do that at his best if he’s also gonna be in a round robin, doing five top level matches in about as many weeks? And it takes away from Andrade being able to do something. Also a little surprised we didn’t even hear from Andrade on Saturday.
Now as we heard on Saturday, round two’s matches are set. Gold League will see Mark Briscoe VS Rush, White VS Swerve, and of course, Moxley VS Lethal. Nice variety there, a couple 0-1 guys facing off, as well as two 1-0 guys, and then 1-0 VS 0-1. No offense to Lethal, but he feels like an 0-2 going up against Moxley. Hard to call the other ones but that’s the fun of it. Meanwhile, Blue League sees Brody VS Claudio in a showdown to be 2-0, then Bryan and Andrade finally jump in, Bryan against Eddie and Andrade against Garcia. Sadly, feels like Eddie and Garcia are going 0-2, no way Tony Khan is booking Bryan and Andrade to lose their first shots.
In fact, that could be half the reason they did wait on those two, that’s almost too good for just a first round opener. But I still would’ve done it, same as NJPW does stuff like that for round robins, which this is all modeled after anyway.
