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

After a violent victory at Full Gear, the Mogul is ready to prove he is the top star of AEW! Will he do that in the very first match of this inaugural tournament? Or will Black Machismo make up for not becoming ROH World Champion by becoming the Continental Triple Crown Champion?

The bell rings and the fans rally up for “Whose House?” “SWERVE’S HOUSE!” Lethal and Swerve both smirk and the two tie up. They feel things out, go around, and Swerve headlocks. Lethal powers out, runs Swerve over, and Swerve goes to a corner. Swerve’s shoulder is heavily taped after that Texas Deathmatch did its damage. Lethal and Swerve reset, tie up, and they go around.

Backstage interview with Orange Cassidy, Hook & Katsuyori Shibata.

Renee Paquette is with Freshly Squeezed, the Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil & The Wrestler as she commends Cassidy on defending the AEW International Championship. The three champions here are going to be in action very shortly, but Cassidy has asked for time to make an announcement. Cassidy starts but Wheeler Yuta walks over with sarcastic applause. Yuta “apologizes” for interrupting but he wanted to congratulate him on the big win. But it took  what? 17 Orange Punches, a Beach Break, and oh yeah, an exposed turnbuckle to put down Moxley. But surely Young Boy Hook has learned a lot.

Hook steps up but Shibata has him stand down. Yuta taunts Hook, and then says he hasn’t forgotten his beef with Shibata, either. Shibata has Yuta’s Pure Championship and it makes him sick. Good luck in the trios match tonight, and good luck in the title defense tomorrow night on ROH. But watch Yuta’s Pure Rules match, too. Because he is taking that title back! Cassidy says he was gonna say something but now they’re out of time. Will The Decoder be the one with nothing to say when he has to eat his words?

 

MJF & Adam Cole are here!

Better Than You Baybay reunited at Full Gear, and they both have to limp their way out to ringside given their bad legs. But at least MJF has a stylish cane to use. He also takes a seat for the “BOOM!” before the ROH World Tag Team Champions get in the ring. They may have bad legs right now but both men are in good spirits after MJF also held onto the AEW World Championship against Jay White. They get mics, MJF has the music cut, and the fans cheer him on. MJF says in case he sounds hoarse, that’s cuz last night he was chugging a lot of booze on Rush Street.

But ladies and gentlemen, and really he just means ladies, because Chicago’s got some girlies MJF would love to get deep with, and he ain’t talking pizza. But it appears that The Devil has arrived in Chicago! After MJF freshly beat the undefeated Jay White, rocking just one leg, he wants to say something about Jay White. MJF learned in those 30 minutes that White really is one of the best pro-wrestlers in the world. FACT. But at the same time, we found out that nobody is on the level of the devil.

Now, you are looking at the AEW World Champion with the most successful defenses, the youngest of all time, the longest reigning of all time, and y’know what? We can agree, he can be a bit too humble, right? So hasn’t he earned the right to toot his own horn? Chicago says yes, so MJF will say what we’re all thinking: MJF is the GREATEST AEW World Champion of all time! He is Maxwell Jacob Friedman, and he is better than you, and you know it! But none of that is possible without his Brochacho 4 Life, Adam Cole! MJF says that a time is coming up. The fans want a certain time. Oh, right! Who’s ready for story time with Adam Cole, Baybay?

Cole means this from the bottom of his heart, it is great to be back here in Chicago. And it is also great that he and MJF are still ROH World Tag Team Champions, baybay! With a little help from Samoa Joe, too. But with the good news must come the bad. And guys, as many of you know, Cole’s ankle is still in bad shape. He can’t walk, he can’t wrestle. But they have his world, he will work his ass off every single day to get back here doing what he loves to do! Cole will come back at 100% to be the best Cole he has ever been. But that makes him worried. Because sincerely, Cole wishes he could be here by MJF’s side, but he can’t.

And right now, it feels like the whole world is gunning for MJF. Wardlow is ready to rip MJF apart, and more importantly, this devil and his goons! MJF says he’s fine. The day MJF was born, the devil screamed with a great furious anger. Wanna know why? Because that man didn’t want no competition! To the man behind that mask, MJF will find you, and when he is done with that guy, the hell he sends you to will feel like heaven compared to- WAIT! The Devil of AEW is on the tron! And he’s laughing! Then he disappears! And then Samoa Joe appears! Well, from the devil you don’t know to the monster you do!

Joe swaggers his way to the ring, a mic of his own in hand, and he says it seems there are a lot of concerned faces. But this is a time for celebration! A big celebration for what MJF did, winning against all odds despite MJF’s supposed best friend couldn’t defend him. And MJF is still here AEW World Champion. But y’know what? Earlier in that night, MJF went out there and defended those ROH Tag Team Championships and started off right by tagging with Joe, for the simple price of a world title match. So Joe has come to Chicago to ensure that as honorable men, they honor their deal.

MJF says what’s crazy, Joe, first off is take a few steps back, because your breath smells like a skunk’s butthole. And secondly, MJF thought long and hard about their deal. He did. He feels like he has come to a reasonable and mature response. The response is as follows: EFF OFF! JOE CHOKES MJF!! Cole pleads with Joe not to kill MJF yet, he wants to talk with him! Please! Joe spares MJF, and Cole thanks him. Cole tells MJF not to do this. That answer is what the old MJF would say. But the new MJF is a man of his word.

And Cole gets it, Joe is a killer. They’ve had their fair share of encounters, those were the toughest fights of Cole’s life. Cole’s been choked out more times than he can count. That’s why Joe is who he is. But Max, that’s why you are who you are. The people don’t just love you because you’re a great wrestler, or because you’re a great talker. They love MJF because when he says something will happen, dammit, it happens! MJF promised Joe that title shot, so MJF needs to be a man of his word. The fans cheer “He’s Our Scumbag!” and MJF looks around. If Joe wants to face MJF, then he wouldn’t be the first ROH legend he’s beat in Chicago.

So how about Samoa Joe VS MJF, RIGHT HERE, RIGHT NOW, IN CHICAGO?!? Fans are thunderous and Cole might be trying to reason with MJF a little bit on that. But then Joe says, “Absolutely not.” What? Joe says what’s really gonna happen is MJF will be online the next morning and complain that he wasn’t 100% for this match. Boo freakin’ hoo. So Joe wants the best version of MJF. The fully healed, 100%, the man who is who he says he is MJF. So surely, but Worlds End, MJF will be 100% to defend that title. MJF asks if he has this right. Joe wants MJF in Nassau Coliseum, December 30th, in the most magical place in the world, Long Island, New York?

Fans boo but MJF says that’s fine, it’s his truth. But seriously, that’s where Joe wants MJF? That is correct. Then Joe has himself a deal! They shake on it, and even Cole is happy about it. But MJF wants to explain something. First, he does love Chicago deep dish pizza, just calm down. But wrestling MJF in Long Island is as bright as gettin’ head from an alligator. But based on the way Joe’s looking, maybe Joe doesn’t have many options. Joe understands what this is and he is great at picking fights, too. But MJF needs to understand that the worrying about “The Devil” is gone. Because now, consider yourself Joe’s property.

And what you learn about Joe’s property is that no one touches his property without his say-so. So everywhere MJF goes, Joe will be a few steps behind. When MJF thinks he’s all alone, don’t worry, Joe has your back, homie. And Joe will deliver the very best MJF to Nassau Coliseum, to then beat him unmercifully, strangle him unconscious, and take that AEW World Championship in front of MJF’s friends, family and everyone he knows and loves! Joe takes his leave, will the last Saturday of 2023 be MJF’s last day as world champion?

 

Six Man Tag: Katsuyori Shibata & #OrangeHook VS Matthew Menard, Angelo Parker & Jake Hager!

While the Continental Classic is putting up three titles at once, three champions join forces here to show what they’re capable of! Will the Wrestler, the Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil & Freshly Squeezed all be shining tonight? Or will the former Jericho Appreciation Society members all get themselves some golden tickets?

Cassidy hurries over to get a mic from the timekeeper’s desk. He wants everyone to hold on a second. He forgot to give us his announcement. It’s a Thanksgiving surprise! Huh? It’s DANHAUSEN~! Fans go wild as the very nice, very evil overlord is here! But then Daddy Magic attacks Hook! Menard stomps away in the corner, lets off at the ref’s count, but then Hook CHOSP! And SAYANAGIS! And then SAYANAGIS! Parker runs in but Hook knees low! And hits a judo throw! Menard & Parker stand up together, and they BLAST Shibata & Cassidy! Then Hager CLOBBERS Hook! Fans boo as the X-JAS mugs Team Whatever.

Parker & Menard then coordinate, BACKBREAKER and KNEE for Hook! Fans boo, but Hager tags in to go up and up and HAGER BOMB Hook! Cover, TWO!! Hook survives and Hager is frustrated, but he looms over Hook as Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Hager throws hands on Hook, has him in the corner, but he hears the fans taunting him about his hat. Hager storms up on Hook, throws furious fists, but the ref counts. Hager lets off to tag Menard and Menard stomps Hook. Tag to Parker, they both dig their boots in on Hook but let off as the ref counts. Parker whips Hook to ropes but Hook KICKS back! Hook then CLOBBERS Parker, but commits so much, he falls over! Parker grabs a leg, drags Hook back and tags in Hager. Hager drops knees, then chicken wings Hook. Hook endures, Hager shifts to a cording hold, and he grinds the shoulder. Fans rally as Hook endures.

Hook fights to his feet, throws body shots, but Hager whips him to the corner. Hook ELBOWS back, runs up, but Hager catches him! Hager RAMS Hook into the corner, tags Parker, and they mug Hook. Hook ROCKS Hager in return! But Parker snap suplexes Hook to a cover, TWO! Parker drags Hook up, tags Menard, and they mug Hook. Menard taunts Cassidy, soaks up the heat from Chicago, then stomps Hook some more. Tag to Parker, they smother Hook and stomp him around. Parker drags Hook up to whip him corner to corner hard, then whip him back the other way! Dynamite returns to single picture as Parker whips again, but Hook comes back to LARIAT!

Fans fire up while both men are down! They crawl, reach out, but Parker bypasses Hook to BLAST Shibata! Parker taunts Cassidy, but Hook reels him in for the T-BONE! Both men are down, Hook hurries, hot tag to Cassidy! Cassidy dodges Menard, BLASTS Hager, dodges Menard to then tilt-o-whirl and DDT! Fans fire up, Parker tags Hager, and Hager catches Cassidy for a SPINEBUSTER! Hager roars but fans boo as he hauls Cassidy up. Suplex, STUN DOG MILLIONAIRE! And then tag to Shibata! Shibata CHOPS Hager, Hager ROCKS Shibata, repeat! They go back and forth, Shibata fires off a flurry!

Shibata runs, into a BOOT! But he stays up, so Hager BOOTS again! Shibata roars, bypasses the boot, avoids the next, and BOOTS Hager back! Parker runs up, Shibata DECKS him! Menard returns, into an UPPERCUT! Hager KNEES low, whips Shibata to a corner, but Shibata dodges! The splash hits buckles, and Shibata CHOPS! And ROCKS! And repeat! Fans fire up as the CHOPS echo out! Shibata then runs to BOOT Menard off the corner! Shibata returns, HYDRAULIC DROPKICK! Fans fire up and Shibata hauls Hager to his feet. Parker & Menard attack, the X-JAS all mug Shibata! Hager tags Parker, and the mugging continues!

Menard shouts for the finish, they get Shibata up and Hager reels him in, but Danhausen gets on the apron! He gets their attention, and he brings out THE HAT!! Danhausen puts on Hager’s hat!! Hager chases him, but he gets CURSED! Hager isn’t sure what to do, but Cassidy DIVES out onto him! Cassidy dodges Parker & Menard, taunts them, then rolls away as they rush back in! Shibata hot tags Hook, and they each get a SLEEPER!! Menard & Parker flail, but the ref explains Parker is legal, not Menard! So Hook & Shibata trade! Parker is in REDRUM!! Cassidy hits the ORANGE PUNCH on Hager!! Parker taps, Team Whatever wins!!

Winners: Orange Cassidy, Hook & Katsuyori Shibata, by submission

Danhausen celebrates with his mutual friends, and the champs all raise their belts. But will Cassidy be able to watch as friend Shibata defends his ROH Pure title against friend Trent?

 

Backstage interview with Adam Cole.

Renee says it is great to have Cole back, and on behalf of everyone at AEW, she wishes him a speedy recovery. They cannot wait for him to be back at 100%. He thanks her for that and says he can’t wait to get going on physical rehab. He is also so, so glad that MJF is keeping his word and facing Samoa Joe. But then “ADAAAAM~!” Roderick Strong comes rolling in with The Kingdom and Cole tells him to stop, he can hear him. Oh, sup, dude? But good they caught him before he left. They saw him Saturday, sorry they weren’t there to be with him. But Friday, what was up? Where was he? Action Andretti dropped Roddy right on his head! He was trying to-

RODDY, SHUT UP!! JUST SHUT UP!! When is he gonna get it through his thick skull that Cole is NOT his best friend anymore?! Cole wants Roddy to do him a favor: back off and leave him the hell alone! Roddy watches Cole storm off, but then says Cole doesn’t mean that. Roddy may (or may not) have a broken neck, but is he about to have a broken heart?

 

Christian Cage is here!

Captain Charisma is in Chicago, as is his “Patriarchy.” The fans boo the TNT Champion as he leads Luchasaurus & Nick Wayne to the ring. A bit surprising he even found them after leaving them behind during Full Gear in that star studded Six Man Tag. But Christian tells Chicago that they know the drill when he’s conducting business. The fans boo more, but Christian says that everyone knows a true champion is gracious in victory and humble in defeat. As we also know, this past Saturday at Full Gear, it didn’t exactly go their way. Now he could stand here with hand over his heart and tell us with all honesty that Christian didn’t lose that match!

Christian looks to Nick and says Nick did not lose that match. He then looks to Luchasaurus. Luchasaurus lost them that match. And that is unacceptable! Christian went home, thought to himself on how to get rid of this stench of losing, and it hit him like a ton of bricks! The lives of both Nick and Luchasaurus have benefitted ever since joining Christian Cage. And since they’re both his “children,” it is time he recreates them in his image! What? Christian tells Luchasaurus to kneel. The fans say “NO! NO! NO!” and Luchasaurus is hesitant. Christian tells him again to kneel. What is Luchasaurus not understanding? GET ON YOUR KNEES, MORON!

Luchasaurus kneels, and Christian says the name “Luchasaurus” will forever be associated with being a loser. Christian thought long and hard about his new name, and he has come up with one of strength. A name of toughness, that means certain victory, and a name that never means defeat. A name that has served Christian well throughout his career. Luchasaurus is his Finisher! And Saturday, the man formerly known as Luchasaurus will prove himself worthy of that new moniker, “Killswitch!” Fans boo, that’s not that creative. As for Nick Wayne, oh! He kneels already. Christian says no, he can stand.

Nick stands, unsure what to do. Christian says Nick should never kneel for another man, understood? Then what about Luchasaurus? Well, Nick is different. Nick is special. He is the son Christian always wanted and now he has. Nick is Christian’s golden boy. Nick is just like Christian! Christian says he loves his “son,” and as the golden boy, Nick shall forever be known as… The Prodigy, Nick Wayne! Again, not that creative. Christian and Nick hug, but Shayna Wayne is here! Christian is confused now, and Mama Wayne pleads with Nick to snap to his senses. Nick tunes her out, and Christian tells Shayna to stop, what’s she even doing here?

Shayna is a terrible mother! Maybe she loves Nick unconditionally, but that’s not good enough! She couldn’t provide for Nick! She only ever made $40,000 a year as a waitress! Nick is a PRODIGY! That is embarrassing for Nick to admit! Christian nis a legend, a champion, he can give Nick the world and everything in it! And y’know something else? Good thing Buddy is dead already. But Christian is a better father, because Buddy was never as good of a wrestler. And he was also not the father or man Christian is. So do us a favor, Shayna. And it is a shame, because things could’ve been different between them.

But for now, get the hell out of the ring, go get on your shift at Denny’s! But then Luchasaurus steps up to Christian!? Fans fire up but Christian tells “Killswitch” to kneel. Christian didn’t stutter, get on your knees! Don’t look at him with that stupid look! GET ON YOUR KNEES! Luchasaurus stares Christian down, so Christian SLAPOS him!! They can do this the easy way or the hard way. Fans rally behind Luchasaurus, but Christian says they can take that mask off so the world will see his hideous face! BACK DOWN, NOW!! Luchasaurus doesn’t budge, so Christian SHOVES him! He bumps into Shayna and she falls right over!

Fans boo and Luchasaurus is stunned! Even Nick is stunned! Fans tell Christian that he messed up! Christian tells Nick to go get something? Nick hurries to look under the ring, and he finds a chair! Nick gets in the ring with it, and Christian takes hold of it. Nick gets another chair… No, this can’t be! Christian is setting Shayna up for that?! Fans boo, Luchasaurus isn’t sure what to do, but then Christian stops himself. He wants Luchasaurus to do it?! Luchasaurus is conflicted, but here comes EDGE!! Edge runs in, dodges Luchasaurus and SPEARS Nick! And then he BOOTS Luchasaurus! Edge has the chair, and he stares Christian down.

Fans fire up as the two stare down, but then “Killswitch” drags Christian out of the ring?! In that case, “The Prodigy” takes another SPEAR!! Christian freaks out as Edge hits an IMPALER, too!! And then Edge gets the chairs! Christian shouts, “NO! THAT’S MY CHILD!” Then get in there to save him! Edge has Nick set up, and he CON-CHAIR-TOS Nick!! Christian is speechless, and Shayna cries over her fallen son. But the Rated R Superstar wants revenge by any means necessary, will he also tear down “Killswitch” to get at Captain Charisma?

 

Backstage interview with Anna Jay.

Renee is with The Star of the Show, as well as the rest of the former X-JAS, and Anna is about to be in a big Triple Threat- Menard interrupts by saying that if information is currency, then he is feeling DIRT POOR right about now! Daniel Garcia’s dancing, Angelo Parker’s new girlfriend, someone tell him what is going on? And what was Danhausen doing with Hager’s hat!? Anna shouts at them to stop. This is about HER! Focus on HER! Renee, ask the question. Well, Renee was just going to ask how Anna feels going into her match with Ruby Soho and Skye Blue. Anna just wants to wrestle. She is tired of everything else.

Anna is tired of the losing, of the infighting, of the drama. She doesn’t know if her guys are here to help her or hurt her, but tonight, she helps herself by hurting someone. Menard & Hager say fine, and then Parker gets a call from Ruby. He cannot be serious. He is in Anna’s corner, right? R-Right. Family first! But Parker still answers Ruby’s call. Will Anna be able to choke someone out and make big waves in the rankings?

 

AEW Continental Classic, Gold League: Rush VS Jay White!

Normally both El Toro Blanco and The Switchblade roll three fighters deep, but the teams are BANNED from ringside per the tournament rules. Which team leader proves they can get it done 1v1 and earns those first three points?

The bell rings and White circles with Rush. The tie up, Rush puts White in the corner, but the ref counts. Rush lets off, White calms down and the two go again. They tie up, Rush powers White to another corner, but White bails out. The fans rally up, Rush waits on White, and White gets annoyed that fans chant for Rush. White returns and the two go again. White headlocks, Rush powers out, and they RAM shoulders! Rush SPANKS White, White runs but Rush DROPKICKS him down! Rush stomps White, “takes his head” and kicks it! The kick is good, but Rush stands White up to CHOP! Rush whips, SPLASHES, and whips again to SPLASH again!

And then hard into MORE railing! Fans fire up as Rush brings White around to whip into even more railing! Rush refreshes the ring count yet again, and he finds that green cable! The ref reprimands, and there’s no distractions to help this time.

White goes to a corner, kicks low, and he fires hands! White CHOPS again, and again, and again! Rush just turns things around to CHOP! CHOP! CHOP! Rush sits White down so he can stomp away! The fans fire up, the ref counts, but Rush runs corner to corner to fake White out! BOOT!

Fans cheer as Rush rolls back to tranquilo! White sputters, Rush has the fans rallying up, and Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Rush watches White stand, and he runs in, but White dodges the splash! DDT! Cover, ONE!! Rush hangs tough but White goes to a corner. White drags Rush up, throws him out, and then goes out to whip Rush into railing! White leaves Rush behind to refresh the ring count, and White uses camera cables to CHOKE Rush! The ref counts, White lets off, and White refreshes the count again. White stands Rush up but Rush CHOPS him! And ROCKS him! And then send him into steel steps! White gets in the ring, mocks El Toro’s horns, then he puts Rush back in the ring. Cover, ONE!! Rush is still int his and White grows frustrated.

White clamps on a sleeper and he grinds Rush down. Rush endures and the fans rally up. Rush fights to his feet, throws body shots, but White CLUBS him on the neck! White turns Rush to hit a NECKBREAKER! Cover, TWO! White is annoyed but he sits Rush up, to CHOP! White sits Rush up again, to CHOP again! White stands Rush up, to CHOP!

White drags Rush up, CHOPS and CHOPS and CHOPS!

Rush drags White up one more time, but White slips free! Rush ROCKS White, reels him back in, THREE AMIGOS! Cover, TWO! White survives but Rush keeps his cool.

The Switchblade didn’t need help to steal that one away! Will White rebound from missing out on The Triple B to become a Triple Crown Champion?

 

AEW shares footage from the Full Gear post show.

Ricky Starks & “Big Bill” Morrissey retained the AEW World Tag Team Championships in their Fatal 4 Way Ladder match, but Chris Jericho confronted them. Jericho & Omega won the right to challenge off of The Young Bucks, so The Wizard just wanted The Absolute & Human Skyscraper to know that the Golden Jets would be seeing them soon. They said the same to him, and then in an interview before Dynamite went on the air, Starks & Bill attacked Jericho! They sent him into road cases, ripped the tape off the beat up arm, and then RAMMED the case into that arm against the wall! Will Jericho be in any shape to cash those golden tickets with Kenny Omega?

 

RJ City & Renee Paquette are on stage.

RJ says, “Wow, what a night.” But they are here to present the AEW Women’s World Championship. A championship that represents the premier women’s wrestler in the world. And without any further ado, the AEW Women’s World Championship goes to… TONI STORM! Toni pretends to be surprised as she leaves her seat in the front row to go on stage. She stumbles a bit, but tells Luther to leave her be. Storm stands back up, gives kisses to RJ and Renee, and then Mariah May appears to present her with the belt. Storm puts glasses on so she can read her “unprepared” list of thanks.

Storm would first like to thank one Mr. Anthony “Tony” Khan, and the wonderful people at Warner Brothers Discovery, especially the great Jack Warner. Wait, don’t play her off yet! She is NOT done! Thank you. Okay, she thanks her trainers, her opponent, Hikaru Shida, all of the AEW Women’s Division, and of course, “the little Toni Storms out there that want to be me. This is my spot. You will not take it. You will not make it. Stay in school. Maybe you can learn a trade. Thank you.” Fans cheer and Storm dramatically bows and accepts their praise. But wait! Here comes Skye Blue! Skye interrupts the Storm, and swaggers her way to the ring.

Triple Threat: Ruby Soho w/ Saraya VS Skye Blue VS Anna Jay w/ Matthew Menard & Angelo Parker!

The Runaway, Chicago Skye and Star of the Show want to all replace Toni Storm as the leading lady in AEW, but only one can have the spotlight here! Who wins big in the Windy City to perhaps bring the winds of change to the Women’s Division?

Dynamite returns as Anna makes her entrance, followed by Ruby. The bell rings, Anna, Ruby and Skye circle, and they feel things out.

Chicago fires up for their hometown hero getting the big win! Will she look to add on to the disrespect she showed Storm by going after that title? As for Ruby, Saraya, and the rest, will this romance story end up like Romeo & Juliet?

 

Backstage interview with Wardlow.

Renee wants a word with the War Dog, but he is busy bicep curling spare guard railing. He puts that down and then asks what the question is. Well, we all know that ever since he came back, his eyes have been set on MJF, just what is he waiting for? Wardlow says the world doesn’t revolve around MJF. Whatever happens to the devil happens on his time. But then AR Fox walks in, and he says Wardlow is putting the blame on everyone else. That’s understandable, it’s what Fox was doing with Darby not too long ago. Wardlow tells Fox that he doesn’t need advice from anyone. Then he SHOVES Fox down! Will the War Dog tear down the Whole Fox’n Show before going after MJF?

For just their first time ever facing off, Moxley and Mark left their marks on Chicago! And best of all, they shake hands to show respect for each other. The Maniac, the Mogul and the Switchblade are your Gold League pack leaders, but who will last all the way to the end of this six week tournament?


My Thoughts:

An awesome Dynamite here to transition from Full Gear and get the Continental Classic going. Great field of 12, and great first round match-ups here. Swerve VS Lethal and White VS Rush were made all the better for not having all the different henchmen and sidekicks ringside. And then what an awesome main event from Moxley VS Briscoe, but I figured Moxley would win to rebound from losing the International Championship. Of the six men in Gold League, I feel like Swerve definitely deserves to be the finalist that moves on to Worlds End. The whole point of his story with Hangman was to prove himself worthy of a prominent spot, so why not the historic Continental Triple Crown?

Great Six Man Tag of Shibata, Orange & Hook beating the X-JAS, with Danhausen making a great surprise return. That loss also fed into the story of the Triple Threat match tonight, with hometown hero Skye getting a win while the tensions between Outcasts and X-JAS growing because neither side wants Ruby x Parker being a thing. But it is a thing, it’s gonna be a thing, both sides are gonna feel real bad when Ruby & Parker tell them all to leave them alone. As for Skye, her win makes it seem she’ll be facing Toni Storm next. Hilarious awards show parody from Toni Storm and the others, and Skye “ruining the moment” is definitely reason enough for their title match.

Similarly, Jericho interrupting Starks & Morrissey to then get jumped by them, there’s heat for the tag title match that we knew was coming anyhow. We might even get a response from Jericho & Omega on Collision to make it more clear. Great segment with Christian and his group, and I really thought this was the moment Luchasaurus was going to turn on Christian. Edge saving Mama Wayne was still good stuff, I just hope Mama Wayne doesn’t screw Edge over because he Con-Chair-to’d Nick. Now that I think about it, that probably does happen as Edge and Christian fight for the TNT Championship.

And awesome promo stuff from MJF, Cole and Samoa Joe to also officially establish the AEW World Championship match. MJF does continue to take unnecessary jabs at Joe, but MJF still isn’t perfectly a good guy so it makes sense. But great for them to have The Devil give a cameo and a laugh. Pretty sure the audio was altered so you couldn’t tell who it was from their laugh, so also good detail there. And a good segment with Cole telling Roddy off backstage. There are a lot of great elements going into this story, they’ve got another five weeks to build this, it’s all going to culminate at Worlds End, hopefully they’ve got the right choice behind that mask for when the reveal happens probably during the world title main event.

My Score: 9/10

The fans fire up as Hobbs says one more time!

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

Sammy writhes, Nigel tells Kevin this is his fault. Hobbs winds up, Sammy dodges the belt to SUPERKICK! And SUPERKICK again! Sammy grabs a chair, and he SMACKS Hobbs with it! And then HEADSHOT! Hobbs flounders against railing but the fans fire up as Sammy stalks him. Sammy tosses Hobbs the chair to KICK it into him! Then Sammy cravats, uses the steps, but Hobbs turns the cutter into a TOSS over the railing! Sammy’s leg clips the top, but Hobbs hauls him back up and over! But Sammy slips free, and CUTTERS to the steps!! Sammy gets the belt now and he LASHES Hobbs in return!

Sammy then goes looking under the ring, and he brings out a table! The fans fire up as Sammy sets the table up nearby. Sammy has security move aside, so he can slide that chair off the table and into Hobbs! Sammy then adds another table! If one is good, more must be better! The fans fire up with Sammy as he has those side by side. Hobbs goes to the apron but Sammy climbs up. Sammy aims and leaps, but Hobbs catches him again!! And he SPINEBUSTERS Sammy through the tables!!! All of Springfield, Missouri lose their minds while the ref checks on both men, and Collision goes picture in picture!

Sammy gets in the ring but Hobbs pursues. Hobbs climbs the corner?! Hobbs then FLYING LARIATS! The Powerhouse proves he can fly, then he covers, TWO!! Sammy survives but Hobbs grinds him into the mat! Hobbs talks trash on Sammy while he fishhooks the nose and pulls on the ear!

The fans are thunderous, this might be the most tables in a non-table match! Hobbs hauls Sammy up, scoops him, and aims, but Sammy slips free to POST Hobbs first! Sammy fires up again while Hobbs staggers around. Sammy chugs a fan’s beer, then SMASHES Hobbs with the bottle!

Winner: “Powerhouse” Will Hobbs, by pinfall

All that damage done to Hobbs and he still took the win! Is there no stopping the Don Callis Family with the Powerhouse behind it?

 

The Blackpool Combat Club speaks.

Jon Moxley is with Claudio Castagnoli as he shares a story. “When Claudio first comes to America, he shows up at the gym to train with William Regal and Dave Taylor. When Dave pulls up, Claudio’s sitting on the front step, there’s no cars around. Dave says, ‘How’d you get here?’ Claudio says, ‘I walked.’ Dave says, ‘From the airport? 20+ miles?’ Claudio says, ‘Yeah.'” That was day one. You think 20 minutes is a lot to Claudio? It’s nothing, he’s a freak. Moxley is a freak in a different way, needing to get hit in the face a couple times just to wake up. And while Moxley’s not a sprinter, he can run all day and all night.

You will never win a war of attrition with the BCC. When it’s a game of who can endure, you have no chance. But the BCC don’t get paid by the hour and they don’t wanna wrestle like they do. So time limit draws for them are unsatisfactory. So congrats, FTR, you pissed them off! Good job. But if you wanna challenge them for Revolution, you wanna pay homage to tag team wrestling in one of the wrestling Meccas, Greensboro, North Carolina, they accept. The four of them will show the world that all that history is just that. This is 2024, this is AEW, the BCC are the elite of the elite, and this sport evolves.

Claudio, what’s Moxley thinking of right now? Well, tag team wrestling, Midnight Express, Rock ‘n’ Roll Express, Arn ‘n’ Tully, Crockett Promotions, its entire history. And about FTR, how they look to the past, how they wanna bring back the past. The BCC looks to the future. The BCC creates the style and the wrestling that they wanna see today. So FTR, if you wanna live in the past, fine. But if you wanna step into the future, that path is through them! And all you have to do is just be better than Moxley & Claudio.

Moxley also keeps thinking, that can’t be all that FTR had. Because it feels like they unloaded all their heavy artillery, every magazine, while the BCC barely pulled the trigger. If FTR want to be big names in Greensboro, then they’ll have to swim in deep, deep waters. Claudio tells FTR to bring the whole bag of tricks, because they’ll need it. The match is set, but just how far will both teams go to settle the score?

 

FTR VS Shane Taylor Promotions!

Dax Harwood & Cash Wheeler are ready for another fight with the BCC, but for right now, they’ve got the STP! Will the #TopGuys still be FTR? Or will Lee Moriarty & Shane Taylor himself prove they’re in that conversation now?

Winners: FTR, by pinfall

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

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

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

 

Thunder Rosa VS Ladybird Monroe!

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

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

Winner: Thunder Rosa, by pinfall

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

 

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

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

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

 

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

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

The trios sort out and White wants to start, but so does Billy. The fans sing “OH~ Scissor Me, Daddy~!” so White says okay, Billy can start. Billy stares down Beefcake Boulder and the two circle.

Billy brings Bronson over, tags Colten, and they whip, body shot, BOOT and DROPKICK! The father-son combo has the fans fired up, and Colten brings Bronson up. Colten whips Bronson to a corner as White argues with Jacked Jameson. Colten goes to a corner, finger guns with his dad, but Jameson now argues with Billy.

Backstage interview with Bryan Danielson.

Lexi Nair is with the American Dragon ahead of his main event match tonight against Jun Akiyama. Some consider this a dream match. Bryan says yes, but what Lexi didn’t say and should’ve said is that this the legendary Jun Akiyama. This is a man Bryan respects as one of the greatest wrestlers in history! Someone who is Eddie Kingston’s hero! And Eddie will be on commentary tonight, watching Bryan wrestle one of the greatest wrestlers, and beat him. Bryan vows to defeat the man that is Eddie’s hero. Bryan wants to make it clear, he respects Jun Akiyama and every single thing he has done. But do you know who Bryan does NOT respect? Eddie Kingston.

Bryan says Eddie just made this thing, that their match at Revolution is about a handshake. That if Eddie wins, Bryan has to shake Eddie’s hand and show him respect, and he thinks that’ll kill Bryan inside. And maybe it will. Because Bryan does NOT respect Eddie, and do you know why? Because if Eddie was asked to do a promo, do you know how he’d do it? Lexi’s interviewed him, right? And what would he say? “Oh, the boom! Oh the lights! Oh, you’ve got shoes on! Oh!” Then he’d say this, that and whatever, storm off and that’s it. He is NOT a professional, has NEVER been a professional!

Bryan has known Eddie for 20 YEARS, and Eddie is someone who had more potential than anybody Bryan has ever met, and he WASTED it! WASTED it until just this last year! But not only does Bryan not respect Eddie, Eddie’s waste of potential just pisses Bryan off. That is why Bryan will win against Eddie at Revolution for the Continental Triple Crown. The American Dragon wants to destroy the Mad King, but will he start with the Japanese legend?

The Bounty Hunter wants gold, but he’ll have to step into the shadows first. The House of Black has been nothing but brutal and sadistic, will Malakai add Keith to the body count?

The fans fire up for Keith as he aims at Malakai. Keith drags Malakai up, underhooks, but Malakai fights and the leg gives up! Malakai shoves Keith to a corner, but Keith pops Malakai up. The knee still holds Keith back so Malakai CLUBS Keith on the back.

Winner: Malakai Black, by pinfall

The Dark Father returned to singles action, and he was victorious! But then the lights go out? Why? Malakai’s already here! But then the lights come on and Mark Briscoe is here with a kendo stick! Malakai wants Mark to show mercy, but here come Buddy & Brody! Mark dodges Buddy to SMACK Brody! And then a SMACK for Buddy! Mark ducks the heel kick to UPPERCUT! Mark gets the kendo stick back, takes aim again, but then thinks of something else. He has a STEEL SPIKE! The same kind Julia Hart stabbed Mark with just a couple weeks ago! Mark aims at Malakai, but Malakai dodges! The spike stabs the buckle pad!

BLACK MASS, and then DANTE’S INFERNO!! The House of Black took Mark’s revenge and turned it around on him. Will Mark learn that no matter what, The House Always Wins?

 

Serena Deeb VS Lady Frost!

The Professor of Professional Wrestling is looking for her path to a championship, and you do that by winning. Deeb had studied up for Kiera Hogan, but cards are subject to change. Will Deeb still pass the pop quiz? Or will she be iced out of the title chase already?

Frost pushes the arm down, ONE as Deeb gets the other arm up. Frost tries again, ONE as Deeb bridges! They stand, go around, and Deeb straitjackets Frost.

Deeb CHOPS but Frost pushes Frost to CHOP again! Frost stomps a mudhole into Deeb, then brings her around for a FISHERMAN SUPLEX! Deeb flounders to ropes but Frost hobbles over.

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

 

Eddie Kingston makes his way to the ring!

Springfield cheers on The Mad King as he joins commentary, just as Bryan said he would. But he isn’t putting on the headset just yet, he must want to wait on the legend. Will Eddie’s hero slay the American Dragon? Or will Bryan beat Blue Thunder like he did Blue Justice?

Wednesday Night Dynamite, Six Man Tag: FTR & Eddie VS Bryan, Claudio & Moxley! Will the Top Guys and Mad King finally beat some respect into the BCC?


My Thoughts:

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

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

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

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

My Score: 8.7/10

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

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

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

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

Penta says again, CERO! MIEDO! Another pie face, but Dante tags in off Quen. Dante shoves Penta but then Komander tags in. Quen jumps on Dante, he and Penta mug him, and then everyone else rushes in!

Komander tags Penta before he runs in, but Dante jumps up and over! Penta runs in to SLINGBLADE! And then SLINGBLADE again! Dante staggers up, into a SUPERKICK! Action tags in to springboard, into a SUPERKICK! Private Party sends Darius into barriers! Penta tags Keith, puts Action in a corner, and GAMANGIRIS! Komander runs in, Penta is the step stool for Komander to FLYING FOREARM!

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

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

Backstage interview with The Outcasts.

Renee Paquette is with Saraya and Harley and isn’t sure how much they’ve been watching Ruby Soho & Angelo Parker, but those two are off on their path of romance. Saraya DGAF about Soho x Parker!! She has things going on, too! That traitor isn’t getting under her skin even a little bit! Harley calms Saraya down, and they do breathing exercises. Why’s Harley flicking her tongue when she does that…? But Saraya wants to talk business. Y’know how her family is big famous wrestling royalty in the UK? Well, see, she has a special announcement. Her brother, “Zodiac” Zak Knight, has just become All Elite!!

Saraya has her brother walk into frame, and yeah, he’s scary, right? Zak could’ve been yours, Ruby! Saraya was gonna set Ruby up with him, “the most eligible bachelor in the Norwich area!” And Ruby messed that up just to be with that greasy, slimy, whatever Parker is! Harley says yeah! Just look at Zak! Isn’t he hot? He’s so hot! The whole Knight family is hot! Saraya is a bit taken aback by that, and she sprays water at Harley. Harley just embraces it so that doesn’t make for a good deterrent anymore… Saraya says it’s okay, Harley’s about to be fixed. But Saraya also promises, “Things are about to get really spicy around here.”

The Outcasts head out, and Zak’s scowl scares Renee a bit. Will Ruby & Parker regret making their romance public?

 

The Young Bucks VS Jonny Lyons & Cappuccino Jones!

Matthew & Nicholas Jackson used, or rather abused, their power as Executive Vice Presidents of AEW to have an AEW World Tag Team Championship match at Revolution. However, they are also very upset at the continued disrespect. Will that really stop after they take their frustrations out on these young indie guys?

The teams sort out and Nick starts against Lyons. Nick doesn’t even bother taking off his trilby (or is it a fedora?) as he circles with Lyons. Nick calls for a knuckle lock but then kicks low and CLUBS away! The fans boo but Nick soaks it up. Nick whips Lyons, Lyons reverses but Matt tags in. Nick hurdles then whips Lyons, Lyons ducks Nick but Matt CLOBBERS him! Matt takes off his suit jacket to then drags Lyons up. Matt TOSSES Lyons to the corner, Lyons tags in Cappuccino! The fans fire up for Cappuccino as he circles with Matt. Matt mockingly applauds, also calls for a knuckle lock, but also kicks low!

Matt CLUBS away on Cappuccino, just like Nick, but then Matt cools off. Matt brings Cappuccino up to throw hands, whips him to ropes, but fakes the superkick to DDT instead! Fans boo but Matt drags Cappuccino up. Matt whips Cappuccino to the corner, he and Nick coordinate to LARIAT GAMANGIRI COMBO! Tag to Nick, he BLASTS Lyons, and then Matt whips Nick in so he can go up and over and PENALTY KICK Lyons! Matt stomps Cappuccino, stands him up, then HOTSHOTS him into Nick’s DISCUS LARIAT! Tag back to Matt and he drags Cappuccino up. The fans rally as hard as they can, but Cappuccino gets the MELTZER DRIVER!! Cover, The Bucks win!

Winners: The Young Bucks, by pinfall

Well, turns out they call that the “Tony Khan Driver” now, seems they don’t care to be associated with the Wrestling Observer anymore. But then they feel disrespected when the ref hesitates to raise their hands? Nick gets the mic to tell Paul Turner that when he raises their hand, what name did he use? Did he really just call him “Nick?” That is disrespectful! Next time, it’s a fine! And Schiavone, please, join them in the ring. Fans boo and Schiavone isn’t sure what to do. But they are EVPs, he doesn’t really have a choice… Schiavone joins the Bucks, and Nick promises they won’t harm him.

Last week, Schiavone was in the ring with them and Nick swears, he tripped on his own shoe, knocked into Schiavone and that is why Schiavone fell over. Nick wants to make it clear, and he apologizes for that. Matt says to show how sorry they are, and how much they love him, they got him a $25 Amazon gift card. They are sorry, Schiavone, but that isn’t the only thing they’re sorry about. See, they’re also sorry that, uh… they can’t get the bloodstains left by Darby Allin & Sting out of their $5,000 suits. Schiavone says yes, that is a problem… Will they rescind the $1,000 fine on them by any chance?

Sorry, no, they can’t do that. But there are a couple things that they won’t be sorry about. The first thing is beating the hell out of Darby for all the trash he talked about them publicly. The second thing, and this is one Schiavone will really like, is them taking Sting and pinning him to the mat, saying goodbye to one of the most legendary careers in all of pro-wrestling! Fans boo but Matt continues to tell “Stinger,” call them Father Time. Because just like time, the Bucks are undefeated. And just like time, the Bucks are coming for Sting! “Now everybody, let’s have a great show! There’s a great line-up on the way!

“Tony’s over there at the desk, he’s one of the best play by play guys in the business! C’mon, everybody! AEW chant on three? One, two, three! A E DUB! A E DUB! Alright, let’s go~!” Matt fist bumps Schiavone, then leaves with Nick. The farce continues, but will there be nothing even Darby & Sting can do about it? Or will the Icon still find a way to retire on top?

 

Tony Schiavone is back in the ring.

Rampage returns and he welcomes a young man who has had a busy year. He’s a brand new father but fighting the Don Callis Family, it’s Sammy Guevara! Tulsa cheers as The Spanish God heads to the ring, back on his feet after the ambush by Will Hobbs. Schiavone shakes hands with Sammy, and Schiavone congratulates Sammy on last week’s win against Jeff Hardy. But now, to the comments Callis had for Sammy just last Wednesday Night Dynamite. The insults he hurled at Sammy, Callis clearly has it out for him.

Sammy says it is a mix of emotions. Last week, he got in the ring with a childhood hero in Jeff Hardy. But on the other hand, he’s pissed off because Hobbs put him through a table! Sammy tells Hobbs that Sammy always knew Hobbs had endless potential, and superstardom written all over him. But he can do that all on his own! Hobbs doesn’t need Callis sucking the life out of Hobbs’ career! Hobbs is a star all on his own, but it’s too late now for him to figure that out because he’s pissed Sammy off. So enough talk! Get your ass out here so they can fight! The Don Callis Family music plays, but it’s only Callis walking out here.

Callis has a mic to taunt Sammy, “Look, everybody! It’s Mr. Mom! You’re back at work after nursing the child. I mean, the only thing you’ve done of any note in the last six months is reproduce, and you shouldn’t be proud of that. Dogs do it. Even these people can do it!” Fans boo but Callis says Sammy used to be a great athlete. He used to be a guy Callis wanted in the Family. But now, Sammy has become like so many others: a weak, pathetic little cuck! Sammy doesn’t get what Callis is doing repeating himself, but then HOBBS gets in from the crowd side! Sammy dodges, SUPERKICKS, and Hobbs bails out!

Sammy eggs Hobbs on, then builds speed, to FLY! Direct hit and down goes Hobbs! Sammy says bang bang, and he gets a chair! Sammy winds up to SMACK Hobbs on the back! Hobbs hobbles but gets in the ring. Sammy pursues, aims again, and he JAMS Hobbs low! Then SMACKS him on the back! Sammy throws off the jacket, waits on Hobbs to turn around, but Hobbs fights off the torture rack to LARIAT Sammy inside out!! Callis smiles as he tells Hobbs to end this! SPINEBUSTER! And then another SPINEBUSTER! Hobbs is gonna do Sammy like he did Jericho! Hobbs hauls Sammy up, scoops and WORLD’S STRONGEST SLAM!!

Hobbs stands over Sammy and Callis applauds. The Powerhouse has all but pulverized Sammy, and Callis even gets his shots in! Will the Don Callis Family make sure there’s nothing left of Sammy to go home to his wife and daughter by the end of this?

 

Skye Blue speaks.

“I had that match. I had it won, if it wasn’t for that bald headed, sad, poor excuse of a man, I would’ve had it and I deserved it. I had that win and I deserved it, on my own.” Julia Hart calms her down and says it’s okay. They will have their comeuppance. And while seeking their revenge, they will dig three graves: one for Willow, for Kris, and for Stokely. But who does Skye want first? Whoever will step up. Whoever has the balls enough to step up and fight her! Will the Chicago Skye continue to darken until she blots out the light?

 

Mariah May VS Anna Jay!

Toni Storm’s superfan still wants to prove herself to her hero, but that really depends on if Storm is even watching this. Will Mariah finally have Storm’s approval? Or will the Queenslayer still be the Star of the Show?

The bell rings and the two circle. The fans rally, the two tie up, and they go along the ropes. They end up in a corner, get out of a corner, and Mariah pulls hair. The ref counts, Mariah lets off and shoves Anna, but Anna doesn’t budge! Anna smirks as she and Mariah rest and tie up. Anna waistlocks, shoves, but Mariah slides to sweep the legs! Mariah runs but Anna dodges the dropkick! Anna runs to BLOCKBUSTER! Anna then ROCKS Mariah, whips her, but Mariah reverses to ROCK Anna! Mariah bumps Anna off buckles, then puts some stank on the DOUBLE CHOP! Mariah brings Anna around to bump off buckles, and CHOP again!

Mariah eggs Anna on so Anna CHOPS! Mariah CHOPS! Mariah bumps Anna off buckles, then digs her boot in as Rampage goes picture in picture!

The ref counts, Mariah lets off at 4, and she brings Anna into ropes to hook her up. The ref counts as Mariah chinlocks Anna against ropes, but she lets off at 4. Mariah kisses Anna on the cheek, then runs to DROPKICK Anna in the back! Anna falls out of the ropes and Mariah soaks up the heat. Mariah stands Anna up, runs, and SHOTGUNS her down! Anna flounders out of the ring and Mariah takes a bow. Mariah then goes out to stalk Anna, and she brings Anna around the way. Mariah puts Anna against barriers to CHOP her! And SPANK her! Mariah laughs while Anna hobbles away. Mariah pursues to then CHOP again!

Anna is stinging while Mariah dusts herself off. Mariah hears the count but she whips Anna into the barriers first! Mariah then leaves Anna behind and “apologizes” to the ref. Mariah goes back out after Anna, soaks up the heat, and vogues for the camera. But Anna throws body shots and CHOPS! And CHOPS! Mariah CHOPS back! Mariah pushes Anna into the ring, takes her time posing before going back in, and Rampage goes to break.

Rampage returns as Anna whips Mariah to a corner. Mariah slips out to the apron, avoids Anna’s haymaker, and ROUNDHOUSES in return! Anna staggers, Mariah shouts and climbs up, but Anna ROCKS her! Anna then gets space, runs up, and HEEL KICKS! Anna then wrenches the arms, ICONOCLASM! Cover, TWO! Anna grows frustrated but she drags Mariah up and hooks the arms. Mariah blocks the Gory Especial to backslide hard, TWO! Anna sits up, into a KNEE THRUST! Mariah says it’s time to end this, and she hauls Anna back up. Fireman’s carry, but Anna slips free! QUEENSLAYER!!

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

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

Winner: Mariah May, by pinfall

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

 

Backstage interview with Ruby Soho & Angelo Parker.

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Winner: Roderick Strong, by pinfall

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


My Thoughts:

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

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

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

My Score: 8.7/10
