PLAY BY PLAY
Tony Schiavone is in the ring!
He welcomes us to Collision from one of the greatest sports arenas in the world, The Kia Forum in Los Angeles, California. Tonight begins the Full Gear weekend! So to start, Schiavone introduces the AEW TNT Champion, Christian Cage! Fans are torn as Captain Charisma, His Right Hand of Destruction and his “adopted son” all head to the ring. Christian, Luchasaurus & Nick Wayne enter the ring, and Schiavone says he has two things to ask about. Firstly, the Six Man Tag match they are set to have with Adam “Edge” Copeland, Darby Allin & Sting, with Nature Boy Ric Flair ringside.
But at the same time, there’s a huge Fatal 4 tonight: Brian Cage VS Komander VS Trent Beretta VS Penta El Zero Miedo, to name a #1 contender to the TNT Championship, that match happening later tonight on Rampage! Christian tells LA that “in a town full of plastic, phony people, it’s gonna be nice for you to have somebody out here that’s actually gonna speak a little truth.” Fans boo but Christian says it is lucky for them- Hold the mic up properly for him, Schiavone. But lucky for them tomorrow night on Full Gear, they not only get to see Sting’s last match in LA, they get to see Sting’s last match ever, and that’s a guarantee by Christian!
Y’see, Christian is getting sick and tired of seeing Sting and his stupid face paint. Christian is sick and tired of seeing people bow down to Sting, and calling him “an Icon.” Really? Living off your past and stealing a paycheck makes you an icon? Well, tomorrow night, it’ll all be over. What’s really interesting to Christian is what will happen to Darby after he loses that mentor he has. Hey, Darby, if you find yourself ever needing a little bit of fatherly guidance, Christian knows who to call. But is Ric really gonna be ringside tomorrow night? Schiavone confirms that yes he will.
Well, then, Ric, Christian wants to say it’s a good thing that he looks identical to the Crypt Keeper. Because if Ric sticks his nose into Christian’s business, this will be Ric’s literal come to Jesus moment! As for Adam Copeland… Fans fire up for Edge, but Christian says if Edge hasn’t already, then after Full Gear, he will come to regret ever signing that AEW contract. LA rallies up but Christian tells them to keep it down while he’s conducting business! Edge can fool all these people by saying he came to AEW to reform their legendary tag team, but Christian knows Edge better than anyone, and he knows Edge’s track record.
Christian knows that Edge is really here just to steal Christian’s spotlight! “Here’s the thing, Adam. I am not the same person that I used to be back when. I am Christian Cage. I am the patriarch of AEW! And while you were coddled, cuddled, insulated and taken care of because you were the Golden Boy, I was stuck in the trenches, scratching, clawing and fighting for every inch! And tomorrow night, we’re gonna see who’s career path served who better. Because I guarantee you this… And Beth, keep the girls up late. Keep Lyric & Ruby up late and bring them up really close to that television set, because I guarantee you this: I am going to break your neck!!”
Fans boo and Schiavone says the contender’s match is coming up, the winner getting their title shot. Christian says as the AEW TNT Champion, it is pretty obvious that the powers that be want Christian on screen every second he possibly can. It doesn’t matter who it is he faces tonight, he could beat all four at once anyway! Fans tell him “PROVE IT! PROVE IT!” Oh, he’ll prove it! And just like his close, personal friend, James Harden, Christian will keep running things. Like Harden said, “I don’t work within the system. I am the system!” Then will someone break the system this close to Full Gear?
Backstage interview with Ricky Starks & “Big Bill” Morrissey.
Lexi Nair is with the AEW World Tag Team Champions, and apparently they have an announcement ahead of their Fatal 4 Way tag title defense tomorrow night. Bill says first of all, they are the BTTEIHNQ: Best Tag Team Ever In History, No Question! And the fact is, Ricky & Bill do not have to be pinned or submitted tomorrow to lose the tag titles. So therefore, Ricky spoke with Tony Khan, and Ricky says Tony is a fair man. Tony allowed Starks to choose a stipulation that would be in their favor. And with Big Bill being the tallest man in AEW, Starks says this is now a Fatal 4 Way LADDER MATCH!
That’s right, a very short climb for Bill. And as “Bald FTR” says, “Uhh, we’re, we’re kind of, uhh, the greatest tag team there is, uhh, greatest tag team there ever was.” So tomorrow night at Full Gear, we won’t need acronyms to prove why Starks & Morrissey are THE greatest tag team in AEW history, there it is! When Ricky & Bill walk out of LA, they are walking out as champions, in style, and most importantly, as the greatest team you’ve ever seen! The Absolute has upped the stakes, will they truly stand above the competition at Full Gear?
Miro VS Daniel Garcia!
The Redeemer continues to disapprove of CJ Perry going back to her old ways, especially now that she is praising The Latino Idol, Andrade. But will Miro show Andrade a vision of what is coming for him? Or will the Red Death prove what he can do now that he’s a pro-wrestler and NOT a sports… enner-tay-ner?
The bell rings and the fans rally up. Miro and Garcia circle, the fans want Garcia to “DO THE DANCE!” Garcia rushes in, Miro sidesteps the low dropkick, and Garcia says it was close.

Miro puts up his hands like Garcia, but says up theirs! He don’t dance! Fans boo and give thumbs down but Miro drags Garcia up. Miro TOSSES Garcia out, then gets on a corner to say he does what he wants, not what they want. Miro then goes out to fetch Garcia, but Garcia throws hands.

The Redeemer lets go when he is satisfied, and has checked off another heathen what dares get near his hot, flexible wife. Will Miro soon look to do the same, or even worse, to Andrade El Idolo? Speaking of…
Backstage interview with CJ Perry & Andrade El Idolo.
Lexi is with the Coldest Manager in the Game and her brand new client, noting Andrade’s big win last week. Is he happy with his new representation? Yes, he is happy, because look! CJ Perry is magnificent. CJ says Andrade is the best wrestler. Third generation wrestling royalty who got started when he was just 12 years old. Andrade was born to do this. That is why CJ has gotten him a spot in the inaugural AEW Continental Classic, “where the greatest wrestlers in the world are entering, it is so prestigious.” Andrade is surprised, but CJ says she negotiated with Tony Khan. Entering also gets him a bonus on his paycheck.
Andrade is surprised. CJ spoke with Tony? Yes, and if he wins the whole tournament, he gets another bonus on top of that. Okay, but why didn’t she tell him this beforehand? CJ whispers to Andrade about something, and that changes his mind. Lexi asks if this is official. Is Andrade officially in the round robin? Andrade wants to double check with CJ on what she just said. And she says yes, it’s true. Andrade says he trusts CJ, so they shake on it. El Idolo is now in the Continental Classic! Will Andrade win that money, as well as that inaugural Continental Championship trophy?

AEW takes a closer look at the TBS Championship Triple Threat.
Julia Hart says, “Oh, Skye~… It didn’t have to be like this. But you turned your back on me, and now, you will pay for it. And Stat, the best revenge is a massive success, and I’ve been thinking of this success for a long time now. I’m the Princess of the Black Throne, Keeper of Secrets, and your next TBS Champion.” Skye responds by saying she’s coming for Statlander, and that ever since Julia misted her, she hasn’t been the same. But tomorrow night, don’t get in her way.
Kris says both Skye and Julia have had to transform how they portray themselves, they’ve had to dig a little deeper, get a little darker, just to try and come after her, and they still can’t hold a candle to her. Kris has always been #MoreThanAWoman, has always been this strong, and only gets stronger every single day. And it’ll take more than just that to beat Stat! The Galaxy’s Greatest is ready for what could be her greatest challenge, will she still come out of Full Gear the Face of TBS?

Backstage with Don Callis & “Powerhouse” Hobbs
Lexi is with the Don Callis Family’s leader and strongest member, respectively, and brings up what Hobbs did to Paul Wight in that Street Fight. The word that comes to mind for Lexi is “brutal,” but Callis says the word that comes to his mind is “out.” As in, Wight is out of action, on the shelf, done! Use whatever phrase you want, Hobbs slammed a 450 pound living legend on the hood and windshield of a car and broke him! Never been done before! That’s what the DCF brings. Then what does this mean for Hobbs next? Oh, go ahead and tell her, Hobbs.
Hobbs repeats, “What does that mean? It means anyone can get it. But what’d I do? I took out a giant, THE Giant, a living legend, a multiple-time world champion. I’m 6’3″, 270 pounds, I’m big, I’m Black, I’m jacked. Paul, I know you’re resting away, convalescing in a hospital, but stay away. Cuz anyone can get it.”

A wild battle between the young members of their respective factions, but Buddy grabs a chair? Buddy goes to the ring, but here comes Claudio! The Swiss Superman gets the Aussie Juggernaut to back down! Claudio gets a mic to tell “Buddy Boy,” if he wants the attention of the Blackpool Combat Club, he doesn’t need to cut a spooky promo backstage. All he has to do is ask. Buddy’s been pissing Claudio off for a few weeks, and Claudio likes to make challenges face to face in the light. And Claudio would absolutely hate to have come to LA without kicking some ass. So what does Buddy say? Buddy VS Claudio, unless he has to ask Daddy Malakai first.
But what does Buddy say? If he’s man enough, the two of them, Full Gear! Buddy nods, and now it’s really on Tony Khan to make it official! Will the Zero Hour be that much bigger with these two throwing down?
AEW takes a closer look at the International Championship match.
Jon Moxley says he is sick of showing respect without being shown respect in return. He is sick of being nice. Orange Cassidy says there was only thing on his mind when he realized what he lost. There was only one thing he thought that he needed. Moxley says Cassidy has spirit, but you can’t hurt Moxley with spirt. And the fact remains, “he hits like a b*tch.” Cassidy thought he’d feel like a champion again the moment he won this championship back. But the moment it was in his hands, Cassidy didn’t feel the same, and that’s because of Moxley. Moxley says the last time he lost was because his body failed him, and it won’t happen again.
Cassidy says when he hit that Orange Punch, and Moxley simply turned back to look at him… Moxley says it will be one of them in the end, but it’s going to be Moxley. Cassidy knows he has to win this to feel like a champion again. He HAS to beat Jon Moxley. Who digs deep enough to truly be THE International Champion?

Tony Schiavone interviews MJF.
The two sit down backstage, and Schiavone says this is obviously a big weekend with Full Gear tomorrow. He thanks the AEW World Champion for sitting down with him. MJF says, “Thanks for having me, ya fat old pr*ck. Renee busy today?” Well, yeah. Oh, c’mon, Schiavone, he’s messing around, just having fun. Schiavone says in the Kia Forum, AEW Full Gear, MJF defends two titles in one night: the AEW World Championship, and the ROH World Tag Team Championships, but without his partner, Adam Cole. Why? MJF says the answer is that he made a promise he intends to keep.
As much as he knows that Austin & Colten Gunn are incredibly ugly, like very ugly, they’re also very talented. MJF is aware of the tough task he has ahead of him for Full Gear’s Zero Hour. Also it is of note that the screen behind MJF plays highlights of his tag team run with Adam Cole, including their big win at All In London. It even continues to show AEW Grand Slam, the night Cole hurt his foot. MJF says he will do whatever it takes to win, and he means that literally. He told his best friend, Adam Cole, that these ROH World Tag Team Championships would still be here waiting for him when he’s back from injury.
And MJF wants to be real, that injury was his fault. So he will not let Cole down, no matter what. Then let’s talk MJF’s frustrations over Jay White stealing the literal championship belt, #TripleB. MJF says as we all know, the AEW World title means everything to MJF. The Triple B symbolizes all the hard work and dedication to this sport. When Jay White stole it, MJF was furious. But MJF realized why White did it. They’re a lot alike. Unfortunately, White reminds MJF of the parts of him that MJF “absolutely despises.” White is insecure, and stole the belt not to prove to the world that he’s championship material. White stole it trying to prove that to himself.
So MJF has bad news for White. The championship doesn’t make the man, the man makes the championship, which is precisely why on November 18th, in the Forum, Jay White will lose. Because nobody is on the level of the devil. Schiavone says MJF is the longest reigning AEW World Champion. Facts. And a win over Jay White will also make MJF the winningest champion. Plus, Full Gear represents one year to the day that MJF won the title. What does that mean to MJF? And what is the likelihood of MJF still making it through Full Gear as champion? Well, MJF feels a lot of pride in that accomplishment. But likelihood?
Well, okay. Let’s talk that. What was the likelihood of his mother conceiving him when she was using a brand new diaphragm? Umm… What’s the likelihood of a man with, to be honest, several mental disorders, becoming a success story? What’s the likelihood of a Jewish American becoming a pro-athlete? Of anyone becoming a pro-wrestler? Of MJF beating all these great men that the video reel is now showing. What is the likelihood of becoming a top guy? Of being the longest reigning world champion in a company? We would all agree all those odds are slim to none?
So when you ask MJF what the likelihood of him beating the Gunns AND White in one night, when all those men are so supremely talented, of him making it to 365 DAYS as a champion… Of him getting one step closer to his ultimate goal of becoming the greatest AEW World Champion of all time? MJF would say slim to none. But unfortunately for Bullet Club Gold and all his other detractors, MJF likes those odds. MJF smirks, more than ready to once again run the gauntlet. Will Maxwell Jacob Friedman find a way to survive Full Gear?
A great go-home Collision here, even for being pushed to Friday for the first time because they can’t have this and a PPV on the same Saturday. I’d say they should really think about that before next time, but Worlds End is already scheduled for Saturday, December 30th. Anyway, great opening promo from Christian Cage in place of those prepackaged promos. Christian of course threatens the livelihoods of Sting and Edge, that’s the kind of Heel he is, but interesting that they’d schedule a TNT Championship just outta nowhere. Awesome Fatal 4, and awesome win for Trent, that title match is… Well it’s opening Rampage, so guess they’re giving it time to breathe. Feels like Christian still wins that so he has momentum going into Full Gear.
Good squash win for Wardlow, so he’s obviously in town ready to strike MJF down when it’s most opportune for him. Good squash win for Kings of the Black Throne so they have momentum going into the now Ladder match for the tag titles. That is going to be awesome stuff, especially after the great match we got from Dax VS Rush and the great brawl to follow. Being a ladder match, just about anything can happen, so there’s a very good chance Starks & Bill retain. And great match from Yuta VS Buddy, even though it was kinda random. Buddy gets a great win, Claudio makes the save, and now we get a great singles match for the Zero Hour.
Miro VS Garcia was also a great match, but of course Daddy Magic had to get involved. Either way, Miro was winning, but that was a good detail for the story developing between Menard and Garcia. Good promo from Andrade and CJ to announce Andrade is in the Continental Classic, and that extra little news she secretly told Andrade has to mean that Andrade could win a world title match if he wins the whole thing. Honestly, that should just be the prize for winning the round robin, same as NJPW’s G1 Climax. Miro should also get in on that tournament so that he and Andrade can have at least one match against each other to help feed their story.
Good promo from Hobbs & Callis, and I would think this foreshadows Paul Wight returning like he returned from the dead or something so he and Hobbs can have a 1v1 match at some point. But until that moment, Hobbs should also get in on the Continental Classic. If anyone can get it, then everyone in that round robin should have to get through Hobbs to get to the finals. Very good promos from Moxley and Cassidy, their match still feels like it could go either way. And good promo from Roddy & The Kingdom to now target Action, that match is also added to Rampage so that stuff actually happens on Rampage.
Good promo from Julia, Skye & Kris ahead of their Triple Threat, and awesome main event tag. Ruby and Parker have another shipping moment that costs The Outcasts, and this of course gives momentum to the champions. Shida and Storm are probably still going to be even going into Full Gear with Storm literally calling her match for Rampage a tune-up. Kris stands tall, and as I’ve been saying, there’s a very good chance we get a new TBS Champion because of the Triple Threat. And then great promo from MJF to close the night, including the video highlight reel playing behind him. Now, something still has to happen with Samoa Joe and The Devil of AEW, but that probably all plays out in the Zero Hour.
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?
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.

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?

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?

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?

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.

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 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 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?
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.
