PLAY BY PLAY

LA Knight is here!

Fans fire up for the Mega Star as he goes to the ring, not even 24 hours away from facing Roman Reigns for the WWE Universal Championship. Knight gets the mic as the fans cheer him on, and he says, “Lemme talk to ya! Nearly 1200 days, my GAWD is that impressive. But what’s more impressive is how quickly 1200 days can come to an end. Let’s go ahead and rewind your minds a little bit. Just last week, what happened? Roman Reigns comes on down here, he said, ‘Oh, well, I’m gonna go ahead and give LA Knight a spear, right?’ NAH-NAH! Tribal Chief gets dropped on his head on the business end of a BFT!

“And guess what? Tomorrow at Crown Jewel, it goes no different. He finds himself dropped on his head, and don’t get lost in this sauce right now, because here’s what this is. This is a hostile takeover, make no mistake about it. I’m coming to take over everything that you stand for, everything that you think that you’ve owned for the last three years. That WWE Championship has no chance but to come with me, and that will be the end of Roman’s reign. YEAH!” Fans echo “YEAH!” but Knight says let’s come on around- WAIT. Here comes the Tribal Chief! Payback of sorts for the interruption last week, as Roman and Paul Heyman make their way out.

Knight dares Roman to get in the ring already but Roman first lifts up the Universal Championship for the pyro. Then Roman makes his way down the ramp and to the ring, and raises his finger to the sky. Fans are torn as Roman then steps in between the ropes and stares Knight down. Roman then raises the belt again for the second round of pyro. Heyman hands over a mic, and Roman says normally, he’d tell this irrelevant town to acknowledge him, but they know who he is. Can’t say the same for Knight. Roman thought after all this time it was clear who the Tribal Chief is, but Knight doesn’t seem to understand, so Roman will introduce himself one time only.

“I’m Roman Reigns. I’m the Tribal Chief. I’m the Head of the Table. And I’m the Face of the WWE.” Fans are torn there, but Roman says a lot has changed around here. He takes his time to leave, and he expects people to step up. Never thought it’d be Knight. But Knight did something to catch the attention of the fans. He managed his time wisely and he has all the fans on his side. Roman gives Knight credit for that. Not easy to do that in this day and age. Go ahead, chant his name. The fans do chant “L A KNIGHT! L A KNIGHT!” and Roman says this is the last time that’s gonna happen.

Like Roman said, he’s advanced the business. Knight is practically setting them back. Roman pushed this forward, all the way to the big screen. The kids call this what now, Wise Man? This is cinema. Heyman says Roman’s the star! Damn right he’s the star! Roman’s the MEGA Star! Roman turned this business into a MULTI-BILLION DOLLAR industry! He’s done everything you can do in this business! And what has Knight done the past few months? Getting fans to chant his name and what? Cosplay a redneck version of Roman’s cousin? That’s done now. Knight’s dream is done, this is the reality, this is the Island of Relevancy!

So take this and enjoy it. Because tomorrow, Roman will smash Knight! Will end Knight! They won’t chant his name, they won’t remember Knight. Knight’s gonna disappear. Because when Roman’s done, they’ll just leave Knight in the desert. But don’t worry, he won’t be the last. Fans boo but Knight smirks. “Y’know what? You gotta be feeling pretty unbeatable right now, don’tcha? I mean, let’s face it, you’ve beaten everybody, haven’t ya? You’ve beaten just about everybody that’s stood in front of you. But you don’t understand. I ain’t coming at ya from the same angle that everybody else did. You don’t understand. I’m not here to finish something.

“You don’t understand. I’m here… to start something! YEAH! I’m here to start the LA Knight Era! So you wanna talk about cosplaying? I’m gonna cosplay the guy who’s gonna kick your ass at Crown Jewel! Matter of fact, I ain’t gonna cosplay it, I’m gonna live it! You come in here and you talk about ‘Mega Star,’ you wanna mock that. I tell you what, you’ve done an amazing job. You’ve made yourself damn near a Mega Star. But only because you carry that title. I’m the Mega Star because I live it every damn day! So I’ma put it to you like this. You talk about leaving me in the desert? I’ll tell you one more time, I don’t do warning shots.

“So make sure, if you’re gonna take your shot, make sure you leave me, make sure I’m good and done. Because if you don’t, I will come back and I will find you, and the only bloodline that will be visible will be running right down between your eyes while you hear ’em say, ‘AND NEW~ WWE Champion, L! A! KNIGHT! YEAH!!” Referees rush out to keep this from turning into a fist fight. Roman shoves, Knight shoves, but the refs stand between them. Will Knight make Roman acknowledge him whether he wants to or not?

 

Kevin Owens VS Austin Theory w/ Grayson Waller!

The Prizefighter managed to hit both The Now and the Aussie Icon with one punch last week, and now he’s looking to just fire off as many punches as he can on Theory 1v1! Will it be more than the 150 million hits Theory keeps taking credit for? Or will KO just need one to KO Austin Theory Live?

SmackDown returns and Kevin is impatient for Theory’s entrance. Waller has joined commentary, and says Kevin “the swamp dog” is just jealous of Theory. Speaking of, Kayla Braxton interviews Theory at gorilla. But before she can really ask about last week, Theory says Kevin sucker punched him and his boy, Waller. But Theory is used to hits, because he’s the 150 Million Hitman! And Kevin also said Theory has a punchable face? No, Theory has a great face, a confident face, a face that should be on billboards everywhere. Kevin’s face is rough. One only a mother could love. But after Kevin experiences Austin Theory Live, Kevin won’t need a mask for Halloween.

Theory makes his entrance, the bell rings and Kevin storms up but Theory backs away. Theory wants Kevin to chill but Kevin says sorry. They tie up, Kevinn puts Theory in a corner but Theory turns things around. Theory shoves Kevin but Kevin goes after Theory! Theory gets in the ropes for defense and the ref backs Kevin off. Kevin and Theory reset, they tie up, and Kevin puts Theory in a corner. Theory shouts for the ropebreak, Kevin lets off and says he’s just wrestling. But then he takes a swing! Theory kicks, Kevin blocks and spins him, but Theory dodges and bails out! Kevin pursues but Theory RAMS him into the apron!

And then Theory RAMS Kevin into the desk! Waller asks how that feels, and then Theory puts Kevin in the ring. Kevin stomps and rains down fists while fans boo. Theory drags Kevin up, bumps him off buckles, then climbs up to rain down fists! Fans boo but also count, and Theory goes all the way to nine, winds up, and- Kevin blocks the tenth! Kevin backs Theory down, and ROCKS him in return! Then atomic drops! Then Kevin clotheslines Theory up and out! Kevin shouts “This is MY show!” Then he tells Waller to “SUCK IT!” before he goes out to LARIAT Theory down! And then SENTON! Fans fire up for Kevin while SmackDown goes to break.

SmackDown returns, Theory talks some trash but Kevin ROCKS him! Then SMACKS him off the desk! Kevin puts Theory in the ring, Waller distracts him, and Theory HOTSHOTS Kevin! Fans boo as Theory POSTS Kevin, puts him in, and CHOP BLOCKS! Theory says ALL DAY! And he DECKS Kevin! Cover, TWO! Theory claims that was more like five, but he soaks up the heat from the fans. Theory calls his shot, drags Kevin up, fireman’s carry, but Kevin fights free! Kevin ROCKS Theory, whips him, and pops him up! Theory slips free, but Kevin blocks a kick to give a kick! Theory stops the Stunner to ROCK Kevin!

Theory somersaults and BLOCKBUSTERS! Cover, TWO! Kevin is tougher than that, but Theory drags him to a corner and stomps away! The ref counts, Theory lets off at 4, and comes back to clothesline! Theory fires haymakers, hoists Kevin up, then ROCKS Kevin again. Kevin kicks back! Theory fires another haymaker but Kevin gives it back! They brawl, Theory goes up, but Kevin hits a SUPER FISHERMAN BUSTER! Fans fire up and Waller freaks out a bit. Theory staggers up, into a whip and POP-UP POWERBOMB!! Fans fire up as Kevin tells Waller to watch. Kick and STUNNER!! Cover, Kevin wins!

Winner: Kevin Owens, by pinfall

The Prizefighter takes down one punchable punk, but will he #JustKeepFighting to get at Waller?

 

Backstage interview with Bianca Belair.

Cathy Kelley is with The EST and says she looks to right a wrong against Bayley. Yes, Bayley and Bianca have history. As talented as Bayley is, she’s doing too much. And ever since Damage Control took Bianca out, this is personal. She wants vengeance. But then DMG CTRL ATTACKS! They mug Bianca, but she fights them all! Nick Aldis and producers rush in to stop this, DMG CTRL runs away while laughing. Will Bianca get back at all the bullies with her match tonight and the title match at Crown Jewel? Or will DMG CTRL still control Friday Night SmackDown?

 

Bobby Lashley & The Street Profits find Logan Paul backstage.

The All Mighty welcomes the Maverick to the show, and they loved seeing him nail Rey Mysterio with that right hand. Montez Ford says it was about time someone did that. Angelo Dawkins says everyone from Ohio has that knockout power. Logan appreciates all this, and is going to keep it humble, but we’re gonna see a lot more of that at Crown Jewel. Nice! They all shake hands, and Logan heads out. Lashley says that is what success is about. Logan comes here and takes what he wants, so that is what they have to do. But then B-Fab walks over. And she says the Profits are up! New suits, Rolexes, “Y’all look good.”

And Bobby, can they talk? Oh, certainly. Lashley and B-Fab go off to the side, is Hit Row going to strike a deal?

 

SmackDown shares footage from last week’s SmackDown Lowdown.

Cathy Kelley was interviewing Shotzi Blackheart when Chelsea Green & Piper Niven interrupted. And Chelsea had an idea. Piper & Chelsea VS Shotzi “and a friend!” Problem is, Shotzi has no friends! HAHAHAHAHA! Bye~! Shotzi still smiled through the insult, is she going to have the last laugh? We find out, after the break!

Piper Niven & Chelsea Green VS Shotzi Blackheart & ???

SmackDown returns and the Wild Child makes her entrance on the tank! But who did she find to help her #TCB, Take Care o’ Bidness? Shotzi has a big smile as she points to the screen. IT’S CHARLOTTE FLAIR! Chelsea says that’s not fair! But too late, Shotzi drew the Queen! Can they trump the champions and grab some golden tickets?

The teams sort out and Shotzi starts with Piper. Shotzi fires off forearms but Piper pushes her away. Shotzi BOOTS Piper from the corner, goes up and leaps, but Piper catches the crossbody for a SHOULDER BUSTER! Cover, TWO! Shotzi is tougher than that, and we see Alba Fyre & Isla Dawn watching backstage. They’re amused as Piper stomps Shotzi then drags her up. Piper drags Shotzi over with a cobra clutch, then she tags Chelsea. Ripcord into Chelsea’s forearm, then Piper runs Shotzi over! Chelsea covers, TWO! Another cover, TWO! Chelsea is annoyed but she drags Shotzi up to wrench and whip tot he corner.

Chelsea runs up but Charlotte avoids the cheap shot. The ref has to keep Charlotte back, but the champs get to mug Shotzi behind his back! Fans rally for Shotzi, Chelsea tags Piper, and the champs double whip. Shotzi holds ropes to then KICK Piper! Chelsea pulls hair but Shotzi ELBOWS her, then ENZIGURIS Piper! Shotzi hurries, hot tag to Charlotte. Charlotte goes up and CROSSBODIES the champs down! Fans fire up with Charlotte, she CHOPS Piper then CHPOS Chelsea! Fans ‘WOO~!” with each CHOP, and down goes Chelsea! Piper goes to a corner, Charlotte scoops Chelsea for an EXPLODER!

Charlotte kips up, fans fire up, and Charlotte runs up on Piper. Charlotte whips, Piper reverses but Charlotte goes up and out and baits Piper into a BOOT! But Chelsea anchors Charlotte’s foot! Charlotte kicks her away, then slingshots to roll Piper up! TWO, but Charlotte waistlocks. They go to ropes, Chelsea sneaks a tag while Piper bucks the O’Connor. Piper stands but into a BOOT! Chelsea is up top, she leaps but Charlotte gets under, to BOOT her, too! Cover, Charlotte & Shotzi win!

Winners: Shotzi Blackheart & Charlotte Flair, by pinfall

This unlikely duo just beat the champs! Will they get to do it again with the titles on the line? Or will the wicked witches watching backstage have something to say about that?

 

Solo Sikoa is here!

The Enforcer of the Island heads to the ring, accompanied by Paul Heyman, less than 24 hours away from facing The Greatest of All Time, John Cena, at Crown Jewel. Fans boo as Heyman has the mic to say, “I’m wondering how many of you realize that this is what they call the end of days for the Doctor of Thuganomics, John Cena. It’s not the way I wanted it to be. This was not my fault! And don’t dare blame Your Tribal Chief, Roman Reigns. John Cena comes back to WWE, who does he pick a fight with? The Bloodline! What the hell do you think we in the Bloodline are gonna do?! Just let him get away with it?! No!

“I don’t pick up my phone and go, ‘Call Roman Reigns.’ No, Roman Reigns makes the call. Roman Reigns calls the shot. Roman Reigns calls the shot and what does he do? Roman Reigns turns to the Enforcer, Roman Reigns turns to the Sergeant at Arms, Roman Reigns turns to our assassin! Roman Reigns turns… to Solo. And let’s be clear on this, Solo does have a huge future in the WWE. And not just as an Enforcer, but one day stepping up when the time is right to be the Tribal Chief. And you can’t become the Tribal Chief without victims at your feet. And there’s no bigger victim to be victimized than John… Cena!”

Fans boo but Heyman tells John, “You could have made it easy.” The fans boo more but then Solo tells Heyman something. Heyman lets Solo have the mic, and Solo says, “Paul, why’re you wasting your breath talking to them? We didn’t come here to talk to them. We came here to talk to John Cena, face to face!” Fans like the sound of that, at least. And here comes John Cena! Cena goes right to the ring, no smiles or having fun this time. Fans chant for “CENA! CENA!” as Solo stares him down. Solo says, “John Cena. I’m pissed off I got to wait ’til tomorrow to fight you. But I got orders from the Tribal Chief.

“And those orders was to give you this microphone so you can say good-bye to them while you still can. Because come tomorrow, you won’t be able to!” Fans chant “Let’s Go, Cena!” and Cena asks, “That’s it? Do you realize who you’re in the ring with? We’ve been waiting for you to talk for over a year, and that’s all you bring to the table? I can do this with half a voice and it’s only gonna take 90 seconds to cook ya. I’ma say goodbye. I’m gonna say goodbye. But I’m not gonna say goodbye to them. I’m gonna say goodbye for them. We all know the only reason you got a job here is cuz of your cousin.”

Fans go “OH~!” and Heyman calms Solo down. But Cena says we all see homie walking around thinking he’s some big badass enforcer, when really, he’s nothing but a bargain basement Taz ripoff! So do Cena a solid, Solo. Tape the thumb up extra tight. The only place it is getting stuck tomorrow is straight up your ass! Yeah, that was 90 seconds. Mic drop and Cena leaves, is he going to be the one that ends Solo’s WWE career?

 

DMG CTRL regroups backstage.

They all feel good about the ambush because Bianca didn’t see it coming. How many times do they have to beat her up and beat her up? She should have her head on a swivel! She’s never gonna learn her lesson, so Bayley will just beat her down for good! And then maybe tomorrow, it’ll be Bayley VS Iyo for the title? Guys, c’mon, just kidding! Just kidding! Aldis says yeah, that’s a good joke, Bayley. But while on the subject, let’s talk about that match with Bianca. It is a big match. A huge match! So huge, Aldis needs to ensure the WWE Universe gets exactly what they paid for. Oh, they already are with DMG CTRL on the show, amirite?

Well, yeah, that’s the thing. What Aldis is talking about is a match with a winner. Best way to ensure that is DMG CTRL is barred from ringside. What!? NO!! Yes. Iyo smiles and says Bayley can handle this. The Evil Genius & #CobraKai leave Bayley to it, will the Role Model be able to lead by example?

 

Donnybrook Rules: The Brawling Brutes VS Pretty Deadly!

After weeks of back and forth, fighting in health spas and in pubs, it’s time for FIGHT NIGHT to go old fashioned! Will Ridge Holland & Pete Dunne make Kit Wilson & Elton Prince wish they were still sidelined? Or will they just make it a reality?

SmackDown returns and Pretty Deadly makes their entrance. But while they get the slow-motion for their posing, the Brutes attack! Dunne CLOBBERS Elton and Ridge DECKS Kit! Fans fire up as the brawl is on right on stage! Ridge sends Kit to ringside, Dunne CHOPS Elton! The Brutes put Pretty Deadly in the ring and now the bell sounds. Pretty Deadly want the Brutes to show mercy, but then run for it! They get caught in the ropes, and fans fire up for DOUBLE BEATS OF THE BODHRAIN! They go to TEN, then way past ten, to about TWENTY-TWO! Kit falls, Elton grimaces on the apron, and Dunne dropkicks him into the ring!

Ridge drags Elton up and Dunne has Kit, APRON X-PLEX for Kit while Ridge scoop SLAMS Elton! Fans fire up as Kit hits the floor again, and Ridge ROCKS Elton! Dunne looks under the ring, and he brings out shillelaghs! Shoutout to Sheamus while he’s away, and Ridge whips Elton hard into the corner! So hard, in fact, Elton’s “yes boys” hit buckles! Ridge then SPLASHES Elton, and reels him in to put up top backwards. Elton is in a Tree of Woe, Dunne holds him back using a shillelagh, and Ridge RAMS into Elton! Kit runs in, but into a FLAPJACK! Ridge has a shillelagh now to CHOKE Kit, and Dunne basement dropkicks him!

Fans fire up while Kit sputters and Dunne FLYING KNEES Elton down! Ridge ROCKS Kit, goes after him in the ropes, and Dunne bends Elton’s fingers while having him across the bar! Elton endures, but he SMACKS Dunne off the bar! Elton then hits a BACK SUPLEX on the bar! But Ridge CLOBBERS Elton! Kit goes out to ROCK Ridge, and POST him! Elton adds an UPPERCUT, and Pretty Deadly is on top. Fans boo but they drag Ridge up and into the ring. Kit ROCKS Ridge, Elton stomps away on him, and fans boo as the mugging continues. Then Pretty Deadly grab the shillelaghs for their own!

Ridge flounders up, Pretty Deadly takes aim, but Ridge blocks a shot! And then he blocks the other shot! Ridge has both Pretty Deadly, for a DOUBLE BACK DROP out of the ring! Fans fire up and Dunne returns! Ridge goes out, he stomps Elton then sets Pretty Deadly up. Dunne goes up to ARIHARA MOONSAULT everyone down!! Fans are thunderous and Dunne roars as SmackDown goes to break.

SmackDown returns again, and Dunne kicks off the barrels to hit Elton with a TORNADO DDT to the floor! As for Ridge, he has Kit in an Alabama Lift! Ridge spins and spins and spins, then he ALABAMA SLAMS Kit onto a trash can!! Cover, TOW!! Kit survives but Ridge just keeps on him. Ridge has the legs, he stomps Kit in the stomach, then turns him over! BOSTON CRAB! Kit endures as Ridge sits deep! Elton slides in but Dunne grabs a foot! ANKLE LOCK!! And there are no ropebreaks, Pretty Deadly can only endure! They both hold hands to shout “ELTON! STRONG~!” Elton BOOTS Dunne away!

Dunne tilt-o-whirls, but Elton HOTSHOTS him! And runs to LARIAT! Elton goes to a corner, he BOOTS Ridge away then goes up, but Ridge grabs him by his neck!

Dunne goes up, but Elton SMASHES a bottle on Dunne’s head!!!

Winners: Pretty Deadly, by pinfall

Some how, some way, Kit & Elton avenge themselves from when Elton got his arm broken! Will they move on from the Brutes to make this Friday Night SnackDown?

 

Paul Heyman encounters Nick Aldis backstage.

Aldis says hello to Mr. Heyman, and Heyman says that’s a nice suit Aldis has. But may he offer some pearls of wisdom? Aldis doesn’t want Heyman to act like he has a choice in the matter. But please, Aldis has the United States Championship weigh-in to attend, so make it quick. Absolutely! If Heyman was Aldis, he’d have a lot of medical personnel on hand at Crown Jewel. LA Knight will surely need it, because in all Heyman’s years that he’s been around Samoans, this is the most savage version of Roman Reigns anyone, anyone, will ever see. Heyman then shrugs and Aldis asks if he’s done. With LA Knight? Hardly.

Aldis sighs as he heads on. Heyman’s warning aside, will Aldis at least have measures in place for Rey Mysterio and Logan Paul being face to face?

 

Aldis is backstage.

He welcomes the fans and the press to the official weigh-in for the WWE US Championship match at Crown Jewel. Allow him to first introduce the challenger, Logan Paul. And now, the champion, WWE Hall of Famer, Rey Mysterio. Each man steps into the room in turn, and Aldis steps back for the scale to be placed. As discussed, they simply step onto the scale and we can get their official weights. Logan is first, and he takes off his shirt but keeps his shoes on. As it stands, 213 pounds for Logan Paul. Then Rey steps up, belt aside but still all his clothing. Official weight, 175 for Rey Mysterio.

Logan chuckles at the difference but they get their faceoff photo op. Logan says Rey’s like an Oompa Loompa. Rey says Logan’s that heavy cuz he’s got a big mouth. Logan says he still backs it up. Dom was right, he’s a deadbeat dad! Logan wishes Rey luck then pats him on the head. Aldis says no touching, that was part of the deal. Rey has one last thing to say. SLAP! Logan is furious but Aldis stays between him and Rey! But then Rey BOPS Logan with the mic!! Logan falls over, Aldis reprimands Rey, but this all goes down in less than 15 hours! Will Rey return to the US still US Champion? Or will Logan knock him out and take the title whether anyone likes it or not?

 

Bianca Belair VS Bayley!

The EST is back and she doesn’t just want her title back, she wants revenge! Will she get the first part of it here tonight? Or will The Role Model use Bianca’s anger against her and catch her slipping?

SmackDown returns and Bayley makes her entrance. The bell rings and Bianca rushes in! Bayley dodges, throws her DMG CTRL shirt at her to blind her, and then she fires off on Bianca! Fans boo as Bayley beats Bianca down, but she lets off to hold up the shirt to rub in the power of DMG CTRL. Bayley stomps Bianca, tells Maggle to say their name, and he says, “Damage Control, barred from ringside.” Bayley whips Bianca corner to corner, but Bianca goes up and over to RAM into Bayley! And again, and again, and again! Fans fire up, Bianca fires off hands then whips corner to corner hard! Bayley bounces off buckles but Bianca drags her up.

Bianca snap suplexes, then deadlifts Bayley to suplex high and hard! Bianca kips up, fans fire up, and Bianca runs to handspring and MOONSAULT! Cover, TWO! Bayley hangs in there but Bianca keeps cool. Bianca drags Bayley up, but Bayley throws body shots. Bianca scoops, Bayley slips free and shoves Bianca to then bail out. Bayley tells fans to shut up, Bianca chases her, and they go back into the ring. Bianca avoids the elbow drop! Bianca scoops Bayley to SLAM her down! And she scoop SLAMS Bayley again! Fans fire up as Bianca scoops and SLAMS again! Fans fire up for the hattrick and Bianca says kiss this, Bayley!

Bayley flounders up, Bianca is on her and whips corner to corner. Bayley reverses, runs in, but into an ELBOW! Bayley comes back but Bianca puts her on the apron. Bianca shoulders through the ropes but Bayley catches her for a HOTSHOT! Bayley then KNEES Bianca into the post! Bianca falls to the floor and Bayley grins as SmackDown goes to break.

SmackDown returns again and Bayley TOSSES Bianca out of the ring. Bayley soaks up the heat before she FOLEY ELBOW DROPS on Bianca’s back! Fans boo but Bayley puts Bianca back in. Cover, ONE!! Bayley fumes while Bianca shows her toughness. Bayley talks trash, slaps her around, but Bianca slaps back! Bayley CLUBS Bianca down, drags her up, and clamps on a chinlock. Bianca endures, fights up, but Bayley wrangles her back down! Bayley pulls on the hold but fans rally even harder. Bianca fights up, throws elbows, and she JAWBREAKERS free! Bayley wobbles, runs in, but Bianca dodges! The boot gets stuck in ropes!

Bayley hobbles out, she hurries after Bianca, but Bianca turns chinlock into arm-drag! And then Bianca scoops Bayley for a BACKBREAKER! Fans rally, both women rise, and Bayley runs up, but into forearms! Bianca fires off on Bayley again and again, then runs, ducks ‘n’ dodges and CLOBBERS Bayley! And CLOBBERS her again! And DROPKICKS! Bianca kips up again and the fans are with her! Bianca runs in to RAM Bayley! Bianca climbs, she rains down fists, and fans count to TEN! Bianca keeps going, with both hands! But Bayley YANKS Bianca down! Bayley runs, but into a SPINEBUSTER! Cover, TWO!

Bayley is still in this, very tough in her own right. Bianca seethes, but she stays focused. Bianca RAMS into Bayley, hoists her up, and fires a forearm! Bianca climbs, drags Bayley up, and fans fire up. But Bayley fights the suplex to throw body shots! Bianca backflips away! Then comes back to go right back up, and SUPERPLEX!

Fans boo harder as Bayley drags Bianca up and into the ring. Bayley then climbs the corner, for the MACHO ELBOW! Cover, TWO!! Bianca survives and Bayley is furious! Bayley grabs a leg, tries another cover, TWO! Bayley stacks Bianca, ONE!! Bayley is losing her cool but she goes out to then clear the desk! Bayley says Bianca won’t even make it to Crown Jewel! Fans boo, the ring count climbs, but Bayley drags Bianca up. Bianca ROCKS Bayley first! Bayley HOTSHOTS Bianca back!

Bayley has Bianca on the apron, and gets under her! Bianca fights with fists and gets back to the apron. Bianca BOOTS Bayley, then drags her up to join her! Bianca fires more forearms, but Bayley kicks back! Bayley runs in, Bianca slips inside, and Bayley POSTS herself! Bianca PLANCHAS to take Bayley down! Fans fire up again and Bianca tells Bayley this is what she gets! Bianca brings Bayley around, puts her in the ring, and then slingshots in, blows past Bayley, and then spins her to torture rack! But Bayley slips out, roll up, TWO!! Bayley has the braid again! Fans boo but Bianca reels Bayley in!

Bayley dodges a lariat, but not the HAIR WHIP!! Torture rack, KISS OF DEATH!! Cover, Bianca wins!

Winner: Bianca Belair, by pinfall

Been a long time since we heard Bianca hit someone with that braid attack! Bianca is rolling into her match with Iyo Sky, but she’s not done with Bayley! Revenge is revenge, and Bianca torture racks Bayley again! KISS OF DEATH through the table!! Bianca is rolling on all cylinders, will the strongEST, the fastEST, the roughEST, the toughEST be too much for even the Evil Genius to plan for?


My Thoughts:

A great episode, even for a go-home that was recorded last week right after last week’s episode. Great promos from LA Knight with Roman Reigns and from John Cena with Solo Sikoa, with the Faces getting the better of the Heels in them. But one way or another, pretty sure Roman beats Knight and Cena beats Solo. Great opening match from Kevin and Theory with Waller on commentary. A little surprised Kevin won and Waller didn’t try at all to help Theory cheat. Maybe that’ll be next time when Kevin faces Waller, and that prompts Kevin to get a teammate. Maybe Dragon Lee given his beef with Theory?

Good promo from Logan with All Mighty Profits, but the important part was B-Fab wanting to talk in private. Hit Row isn’t even really Hit Row anymore without Swerve or Dolla, will B-Fab and Adonis now join Lashley so they at least have a place to belong? Plus, there’s continuity for Hit Row VS Legado del Fantasma, which is now the LWO. Good weigh-in segment for Rey and Logan, not that weight matters in a title division that doesn’t have weight limits. But Rey getting the better of Logan here, I have a bad feeling that means Logan wins to be US Champion. Said before that while I personally don’t want it, this probably helps WWE on some sort of social media/relevancy/business level. Bleh.

I appreciate them making SmackDown Lowdown matter, if only in part. They never did that with Smack Talk during Pandemic Era. And great tag match of Piper & Chelsea VS Shotzi & Charlotte. While Fyre & Dawn feel like the obvious choice to get those titles off Piper & Chelsea, I kinda dig the duo of Shotzi & Charlotte for how different they are. And awesome stuff in that Donnybrook. But given Pretty Deadly is on their “return” push, it made sense for them to win out. These two teams are helping keep SmackDown going in the tag division while LWO and All Mighty Profits are busy fighting each other, maybe Pretty Deadly gets their shot at the tag titles soon.

And great stuff from Bianca and Damage Control. DMG CTRL attacking to then get banned from ringside is good stuff, it really adds to the passive aggressive tension that’s been there between Iyo and Bayley. Bianca VS Bayley was a great main event, and of course Bianca wins to go strong into Crown Jewel. But while Bianca gets a semblance of revenge putting Bayley through the table, she probably won’t beat Iyo. The math is now in Iyo’s favor because unless Aldis puts another ringside ban on DMG CTRL, Bayley and even Dakota Kai can help screw Bianca over. Or Iyo herself could find a way to cheat, maybe even get disqualified for Champion’s Advantage if she has to. But given Bianca has basically dominated DMG CTRL since SummerSlam 2021, DMG CTRL has to get a win of some kind.

My Score: 8.8/10

AEW International Championship: Will Ospreay VS MJF!

Like many of us, The Aerial Assassin despise the Wolf of Wrestling for how he disrespected and used Daniel Garcia just to send a message. But also like many, Ospreay at least acknowledges and respects that this form of Maxwell Jacob Friedman is his most dangerous. Will Ospreay be able to put down AEW’s Ultimate Scumbag? Or will even the #BillyGOAT not be on the level of the devil?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see who ignites episode 250!

The bell rings and the fans cheer while the two stare down. Ospreay gets the fans even more fired up, and then MJF bails out. The fans boo but MJF just hops the railing. MJF splashes fans with their own water! MJF then lounges on the barriers, offers a fist bump, but the fans just flip him off. So MJF rips a fan’s sign up and throws it back! MJF goes back to the ring, tells fans to shut up, and he approaches Ospreay. Only to dodge and strut, then swivel the hips. The fans boo but Ospreay smirks, this is the MJF he knew he was getting. They tie up, MJF wrenches to hammerlock, but Ospreay headlocks.

MJF powers up to wrench and WRING Ospreay, but Ospreay handsprings through, and copies the strut! Ospreay shows he can swivel hips, too! The fans cheer but MJF sarcastically says Ospreay’s clever. The two tie up, MJF headlocks, but the fans sing, “OSPRAEY~ OSPREAY OSPREAY OSPREAY~!” MJF is annoyed, Ospreay powers up and out, then things speed up. Ospreay hurdles then drops down to trip MJF up! MJF ducks the Hidden Blade to hit a headlock takeover! Ospreay headscissors, MJF kips free, and roles reverse as Ospreay headlocks for the takeover. MJF headscissors but Ospreay kips free.

MJF ducks the Penalty Kick, avoids the standing moonsault, then bobs ‘n’ weaves to avoid Ospreay’s punches and kicks. MJF shoves Ospreay, Ospreay springboards but MJF avoids that, too! MJF runs in, Ospreay dodges to handspring, but MJF gets under! Ospreay superhero lands, and the fans are thunderous while MJF is stunned! The fans cheer “A E DUB! A E DUB!” for making this the opener! MJF is annoyed, but he and Ospreay tie up. MJF says Ospreay pulled hair! The fans boo because of course MJF is lying. MJF and Ospreay reset, tie up, and again MJF claims hair pulling. But then MJF pulls hair!

MJF puts Ospreay on the ropes, the ref counts, and MJF lets off, to take a swing! Ospreay dodges and then LARIATS MJF up and out! The fans fire up and Ospreay builds speed, only for MJF to get away. MJF says not today, but then Ospreay just changes course and he FLIES out onto MJF! The fans fire up and high-five Ospreay before he puts MJF in. Ospreay HOTSHOTS MJF, runs and BOOTS, then he hits as BIG back suplex! Cover, TWO! Ospreay prepares the elbow and the fans fire up. Ospreay aims but MJF scrambles to the apron. The fans boo, Ospreay storms over, but MJF YANKS Ospreay into buckles!

MJF stomps a mudhole in, drags Ospreay up to whip and WRING him into the corner! Ospreay flounders and MJF soaks up the heat. Then he blows snot at the fans and mocks them! MJF goes back to Ospreay, clamps onto an arm, and the fans rally and duel as Ospreay endures. Ospreay fights up, throws body shots, then forearms. MJF throws Ospreay down by his hair! The fans boo but MJF just soaks it up. MJF says he didn’t do anything. Then he clamps on with a chinlock and grinds Ospreay down. Ospreay fights up to JAWBREAKER free! Ospreay runs but MJF kitchen sink knees! MJF hauls Ospreay up to back suplex, but Ospreay lands out!

Ospreay reels MJF in to back suplex, but MJF lands out! MJF back suplexes, Ospreay lands out, into a STUNNER! Cover, TWO! MJF’s annoyed his Osaka Street Cutter, or perhaps Long Island Street Cutter, didn’t end this, but he storms after Ospreay. Ospreay is on the apron, MJF reels him in, HEAT- NO! Ospreay shoves MJF away, but MJF slingshots Ospreay into another STUNNER! Cover, TWO!! Ospreay survives and MJF is frustrated. The fans rally for Ospreay as he goes to the apron, but MJF storms over. MJF drags Ospreay in again, tries but Ospreay again denies him the Heatseeker! So MJF tries the slingshot, but Ospreay stops that!

Ospreay GAMANGIRIS MJF away, goes up a corner, and PIP PIP CHEERIO! Both men are down and the fans fire up! Ospreay rises but so does MJF. Ospreay fires haymakers on MJF first, then whips. MJF reverses but Ospreay CLOBBERS him! MJF bails out but Ospreay builds speed! Ospreay handsprings to SASUKE SPECIAL! The fans are thunderous but Ospreay takes a moment to check his ribs and catch his breath. Ospreay storms up on MJF, puts him in the ring, then goes up a corner. The fans fire up for the MOONSAULT, but MJF moves! Ospreay lands out, MOONSAULTS again, but MJF dodges again!

But the STANDING SHOOTING STAR hits! Cover, TWO! So Ospreay goes up and up to SKY TWISTER! Cover, TWO!! MJF survives the onslaught but Ospreay loads up that elbow! “This is Awesome!” as Ospreay aims again. MJF slowly rises, Ospreay runs up, but MJF bails out again! The fans continue to boo but Ospreay PLANCHAS! Down goes MJF and Ospreay high-fives more fans. And then Ospreay confiscates the timekeeper’s table! The fans are thunderous as Ospreay brings the furniture over to ringside. MJF hurries away into the ring now! Ospreay pursues as we see the fear on MJF’s face.

Ospreay CHOPS MJF in the corner! Ospreay stands MJF up to CHOP him again! The fans “WOO~” and Ospreay runs, but MJF pops him up to SUPERKICK him! MJF goes up, but Ospreay avoids the Panama City/Long Island Sunrise, but then MJF knees low! MJF reels Ospreay in but Ospreay powers out. Ospreay whips MJF to the corner, MJF goes up and over, but then MJF’s knee jams! Ospreay grabs that leg but it was a trap! MJF steps over and hits as STUFF PILEDRIVER!! Cover, TWO!! Ospreay survives and both men are down again. The fans rally up while both men stir, and MJF rises first.

MJF shows off that the leg is just fine, then does the Daniel Garcia dance just to mock him. MJF then drops an elbow on Ospreay’s leg. Ospreay CLUBS at MJF but MJF keeps the toehold. Ospreay fishhooks MJF and MJF lets go. Ospreay CHOPS, and CHOPS, then runs, but into a back drop! MJF leans on the ropes while he catches his breath, and the fans rally again. MJF storms back over, KNEES the leg, then smirks. MJF steps through, ties the legs up, and has the FIGURE FOUR! The fans “WOO~,” even as MJF SLAPS Ospreay! And SLAPS him! MJF thrashes the hold, but Ospreay endures. Ospreay’s shoulders are down, TWO as he sits back up!

Ospreay pries at the leglock, and the fans rally up as he works to turn things over. MJF fights that back, thrashes some more, but Ospreay grits his teeth. The fans rally harder and harder as Ospreay fights his way over, and he turns the hold onto MJF! MJF endures now, reaches out while shouting in pain, and he flails in order to turn things back onto Ospreay! The fans boo but Ospreay endures again. Ospreay drags MJF along, reaches out, and has the ROPEBREAK! The ref counts but MJF lets go at 4. MJF is frustrated but then he drags Ospreay up and to a corner. MJF CHOPS, takes a moment, then CHOPS again!

MJF wrenches, whips, but Ospreay can’t even make it all the way! MJF smirks while the ref checks Ospreay. Ospreay shakes out the leg, refusing to admit defeat. MJF storms over, stands Ospreay up, and CHOPS! Ospreay hobbles, so MJF CLAWS Ospreay’s back! MJF whips, Ospreay barely makes it to ropes! MJF wants after Ospreay like a shark with blood in the water, but Ospreay sits on the apron. MJF tells off the fans cheering Ospreay, but Ospreay is somehow still in this. So MJF CLAWS Ospreay’s face! The fans boo but MJF soaks it up. Ospreay throws body shots and haymakers! Ospreay CHOPS and MJF wobbles!

Ospreay CHOPS again, MJF flails more. Ospreay snarls, runs, but MJF CHOP BLOCKS the legs! MJF covers, TWO! MJF frowns but he stomps Ospreay’s leg. MJF then stands Ospreay up to CLUB him on the neck! Ospreay hobbles, so MJF CLAWS his back! Ospreay fires big forearms! Then he fires Kawada Kicks! MJF wobbles, into a CHOP! MJF goes to ropes, Ospreay scoops him, but MJF CLAWS the eyes again! The ref reprimands and counts, MJF stops at 4. The fans boo but MJF whips. Ospreay ducks ‘n’ dodges, and DOUBLE LARIATS take both men down! The fans fire up again while Ospreay again clutches the leg.

Ospreay rises, but MJF KNEES the knee! Then MJF calls his shot! MJF suplexes, but STUN DOG MILLIONAIRE hits first! MJF wobbles around, Ospreay calls his shot now! Springboard, OSCUTTER!! But MJF flops all the way to ropes! Ospreay has to crawl his way over, and MJF flops to the floor! MJF’s ring awareness is strong but Ospreay pursues. Ospreay drags MJF up to put him in the ring, and then onto the apron. Ospreay uses a corner to go up and APRON OSCUTTER FLOP as MJF steps back! Ospreay writhes, signaling to his arm, and the ref hurries to check. MJF may have gotten lucky here, as Dynamite goes picture in picture.

The ref has Ospreay go around the way but MJF is in pursuit! MJF shows no mercy as he grabs that bad arm, and RAMS Ospreay into steel steps! MJF stands on the steps to soak up all the heat, as well as talk some trash on Ospreay. It’s certainly in the vain of MJF is who AEW needs, not Ospreay. MJF drags Ospreay up and into the ring, then takes his time to taunt fans over the table. He flips the fans off, he isn’t gonna do what they want. MJF then goes back to Ospreay, grabs the bad arm, and he stands on it, to then STOMP it! MJF soaks up more heat as he paces around Ospreay, then clamps onto the arm again.

Ospreay endures the mounted armlock, and he fights to his feet. Now Ospreay pulls hair, but MJF throws Ospreay down by the arm. MJF grinds that shoulder but Ospreay still endures. The fans rally as Ospreay fights, stands up, and throws body shots. Dynamite returns to single picture as Ospreay ROCKS MJF with forearms. Ospreay whips, MJF reverses but Ospreay handsprings, only for MJF to KICK the bad arm! Ospreay clutches the elbow, but MJF hauls him up! Double underhooks, for a SHOULDER BUSTER! And then it’s back to the armlock! Ospreay rolls through, but MJF ducks the roundhouse to pump handle!

MJF adds a half nelson, MADE IN JAPAN! Or perhaps, Made in Long Island? Cover, TWO!! Ospreay knows that move from his rivalry with Shingo Takagi. The fans rally while both men are down again, “This is Awesome!” Ospreay and MJF slowly rise, MJF storms over, and he whips. Ospreay holds ropes to stop that, so MJF CLUBS the arm! MJF makes the pecs dance, whips again, but Ospreay reverses. Ospreay then dodges MJF to handspring and NEURALIZER KICK! Both men are down again and the fans stay fired up! Ospreay sits up first, then both men stand. Ospreay BOOTS MJF’s haymaker to then ENZIGIRI!

MJF wobbles, Ospreay wrenches an arm, and Ospreay CHOPS MJF off his feet! Ospreay drags MJF up to wrench and CHOP him down again! Ospreay stands MJF one more time, to CHOP, CHOP, and- NO, MJF blocks the chop! MJF WRINGS the arm, Ospreay cartwheels through! ENZIGIRI! Torture rack, TOWER HACKER BOMB! Cover, TWO!! MJF survives and the fans can’t believe it! The fans hope they “FIGHT FOREVER!” but there’s still more show that has to happen! MJF crawls to the apron, Ospreay stalks him. MJF flops to the floor, but he’s near that table… Ospreay goes to the floor and brings MJF up.

MJF throat chops Ospreay! MJF runs away into the crowd, but Ospreay pursues! Ospreay fires hands on MJF even as MJF goes up the bleachers. Ospreay grabs MJF, bends him against railing, and offers free shots. A little girl starts punching MJF in the ribs! MJF flips her family off but Ospreay CLUBS away on MJF! Ospreay fist bumps the girl and drags MJF back up. Ospreay ROCKS MJF with a right and follows him down the stairs. Ospreay CHOPS MJF to keep him moving, but MJF takes a detour into the seats. So Ospreay makes MJF take a seat and punches down hands! The fans count along, Ospreay winds up, and hits TEN!

MJF flounders around, Ospreay shows that there’s one guy still wearing an MJF Kangaroo Kick shirt, and then pursues MJF. MJF pokes Ospreay right in the eyes! MJF CLUBS Ospreay, but Ospreay kicks MJF! Ospreay SMACKS MJF off the trash can! The fans fire up and Ospreay DUMPS MJF into the trash can! MJF kicks and flails but Ospreay BOOTS the can! MJF falls out, stumbles away, and Ospreay pursues. They finally return to ringside, and Ospreay refreshes the count that was never happening anyway. Ospreay then drags MJF over to the table, punches him onto it, then goes up the steel steps.

Ospreay then goes up the corner and fans are thunderous already! Ospreay aims, but MJF hurries off the table. The fans boo and Ospreay sighs, but Ospreay hops down to go after MJF. But MJF gut wrenches! Ospreay victory rolls, TWO! MJF has the victory roll, TWO! Ospreay has it, TWO! MJF is up, Ospreay gets around and hops on, POISON-RANA! MJF flounders to a corner, Ospreay runs up, but MJF pops him up! Another SUPERKICK as Ospreay is upside-down! MJF goes up, LONG ISLAND SUNRISE!! Cover, TWO!?! The fans are electric as Ospreay survives another hard shot! Ospreay then goes to the apron and then the floor.

MJF pursues, and we return to the table. MJF puts Ospreay on the table and then goes up the apron. The fans rally as MJF actually climbs the corner. MJF reaches the top, but then Ospreay slips off the table! The fans still boo, they want that table to see some action. MJF hops down, talks smack on Ospreay, then CHOPS him. MJF BITES Ospreay’s arm! The fans boo and tell MJF he’s sick! The ref counts, MJF lets off, but he then ROCKS Ospreay with a haymaker. MJF again mocks Daniel Garcia, even asking if Garcia has feeling in his arms again. MJF then whips Ospreay hard into railing! Ospreay almost ends up in the front row!

MJF makes Ospreay take a seat, and he CLAWS at Ospreay’s face! MJF refreshes the ring count, then runs in at Ospreay, to BOOT Ospreay against railing! MJF hops up to soak up more heat, then he refreshes with some water. That he then splashes at fans. MJF stalks Ospreay back to the table, refreshes the count, and then asks, “Ospreay who?” MJF stands Ospreay up to whip, but Ospreay goes up onto the railing, to OSCUTTER to the floor! The fans fire up again while both men are down! Ospreay clutches the bad leg and the bad arm, but he manages to rise up and put MJF in. Ospreay then swings, but into MJF’s dragon sleeper!

But Ospreay flips things around! The fans cheer, as Ospreay hits CROSS RHODES!! Cover, TWO!!! MJF survives, but Ospreay storms after him in a corner. MJF uses the ref as a shield, then he pokes Ospreay in the eyes! MJF goes up to DOUBLE STOMP the bad arm! MJF reels Ospreay in, hammerlock and lift, DDT!! Cover, TWO!!! Ospreay survives and the fans continue to rally behind him. MJF is frustrated but he pursues Ospreay to the apron. MJF drags Ospreay through ropes, and HEAT- NO! Ospreay throws MJF away, MJF’s leg “jams,” and Ospreay takes aim. Ospreay springboards but MJF hits ropes to trip him up!

Ospreay gets stuck up there, MJF goes up to LEAPING LARIAT!! Cover, TWO?!? MJF is beside himself as Ospreay survives again! MJF stalks Ospreay to the apron, drags him up, and gut wrenches! The fans freak out but Ospreay flails and kicks! Ospreay turns things around onto MJF, but MJF KICKS Ospreay! MJF then suplexes, but Ospreay slips free! Ospreay waistlocks but the arm won’t let him lift! So Ospreay SUPERKICKS MJF instead! MJF wobbles, Ospreay reels him in, and tucks him for an APRON STYLES CLASH!!! Both men fall to the floor and Little Rock is losing its collective mind right now!

Ospreay drags MJF up and into the ring, covers, TWO!!!! MJF survives but Ospreay is too tired to be upset. Ospreay just rises up, brings MJF to his feet, and reels him in. Even with one arm, Ospreay hits a LAST RIDE!! Cover, TWO!! MJF reminds us why he was once the longest reigning AEW World Champion while Dynamite goes back to picture in picture.

Ospreay shakes out the arms, but Doc Sampson is called over to check. Doc checks that arm, from lifting to turning. Then Doc checks with Ospreay if he wants to do “that,” and Ospreay says go for it. Doc YANKS Ospreay’s arm to pop it back in place! Ospreay clutches the arm again but it seems that did the trick. Ospreay has the fans fired up again, and he drags MJF up for Kawada Kicks! Ospreay stands over MJF while Dynamite goes to break.

Dynamite 250 returns and Ospreay calls his shot. MJF rises, and he spins Ospreay around to BITE Ospreay’s face! The fans boo, MJF runs, but Ospreay HIDDEN BLADES!! Cover, TWO!!! MJF survives a shot to the face but Ospreay roars! The fans are thunderous as MJF sits up, into a BUZZSAW! MULE KICK! OSC- NO, MJF stops the cutter to gut wrench, and TOMBSTONE!! Cover, TWO?!?! Ospreay survives again and the fans again cheer “A E DUB! A E DUB!” for giving us this instant classic. MJF snarls, and he uses wrist tape to CHOKE Ospreay! The ref reprimands, MJF lets off, and MJF goes to the corner with Ospreay.

MJF wrenches the bad arm, whips him hard into the corner, and Ospreay falls. The fans boo but MJF grins as he rises up. MJF storms over to Ospreay, stands him up and wrenches to an ELBOW BREAKER! MJF whips again, and harder! Ospreay falls back, MJF flexes, but the fans boo. MJF mocks the United Empire crown then says shove it. MJF drags Ospreay up, whips him corner to corner again, but Ospreay reveres! MJF tumbles up, comes back, and Ospreay CHOPS! And CHOPS! But MJF blocks one again to WRING the arm again! Ospreay writhes, MJF leans on ropes, and then MJF runs in. Ospreay DUMPS MJF out hard!

The fans fire up and Ospreay goes to the apron, only for MJF to YANK him down! MJF puts Ospreay in the ring and says that’s why he’s the smartest wrestler in AEW. But not the wisest as Ospreay DIVING HIDDEN BLADES MJF!! Both men fall to the floor and the fans are thunderous again! Ospreay rises, a ring count starts, and fans count along. We hit 5 of 10, Ospreay puts MJF in at 6. Ospreay goes up the corner, and he BLINDSIDE CHEERIOS! Cover, TWO!! MJF survives again but Ospreay doesn’t get frustrated. Ospreay goes to the apron and climbs up the corner, but MJF again hits ropes! Ospreay lands bad on the corner this time!

MJF climbs up, throws hands, then goes to the very top. SUPER- NO! Ospreay stops the Steiner with one good arm! The fans fire up as he tucks MJF in, for a SUPER STYLES CLASH!! But Ospreay struggles to turn MJF over for the cover! ROPEBREAK!! Ospreay is frustrated now but there’s nothing he can do about that. Ospreay drags MJF up but MJF HOTSHOTS the arm! MJF reels Ospreay in, for an APRON HEATSEEKER!! Ospreay flops to the floor, and MJF looks at the table…! MJF puts Ospreay on the table, hurries back to the corner, and MJF climbs! The fans are going nuts already as MJF SUPER MACHO ELBOWS THROUGH THE TABLE!!!

The fans lose their minds all over again as MJF goes for broke! The ref checks both men, and they’re somehow okay to continue! “This is Awesome!” as we once again go picture in picture.

MJF flounders his way back to ringside and drags himself in. But Champion’s Advantage won’t let him win the title like this! Ospreay is still on the outside as we pass 5 of 10, and he starts to stir around 7. MJF then springs out after Ospreay to get him back in! Seems MJF was just resting, and he shouts about something, probably about how he’s better. MJF stands, paces around, then stomps Ospreay’s legs, then Dynamite goes to break.

Dynamite 250 returns again, and MJF has Ospreay in a Cobra Twist. MJF sneakily grabs the ropes to add on leverage! The ref looks but MJF lets go in time. Ospreay still endures, and MJF digs a knuckle into the ribs. MJF then again sneaks a grab at the ropes! The ref gets closer to catching him but the fans tell on MJF! MJF tells them all to shut up! MJF still grabs for ropes, but the ref sees it this time! MJF says he’s not doing nothing! The ref KICKS that arm! Ospreay then hip tosses free! Both men are down and the fans fire up again! MJF gets up, Ospreay reels him into a package, TWO! Schoolboy, TWO!

Ospreay stands, slips around to backslide, TWO!! MJF escapes again, to headlock takeover and cover, TWO as Ospreay headscissors! MJF moves around, bridges to a cover, TWO as Ospreay bridges out! A spin and backslide, TWO!! MJF whips, Ospreay swings but MJF gets under! Ospreay leaps, into the POWER BACKBREAKER! Cover, TWO!!! The fans are electric again as both men are down! The fans sing for Ospreay as he crawls to a corner. MJF sits up then rises up to soak up heat. MJF hits the kangaroo stance?! The fans are torn, surely he isn’t serious. But then MJF runs up, KANGAROO- NO! Ospreay catches MJF!

Ospreay CATAPULTS MJF, but MJF lands safe on the corner! Only for Ospreay to tuck him in and CHEEKY NANDOS! MJF is still stuck so Ospreay goes up after him, for a SUPER POISON RANA! MJF lands out?! MJF shows he can do what Ospreay does and the fans lose their minds! LARIAT in the corner, then MJF hoists Ospreay up top. MJF goes up and up and smirks, gives some thrusts, then SUPER STEINERS! Ospreay lands out!! Ospreay shows MJF how it’s really done and MJF is in disbelief! Both men turn around, MJF swings but Ospreay goes Matrix! MJF returns the favor to dodge Ospreay!

Ospreay blocks a kick but MJF pokes him in the eyes! MJF flips everyone off, but Ospreay HOOK KICKS him! MJF rebounds to ROCK Ospreay! Ospreay rebounds to BOOT MJF! MJF rebounds to ROLLING ELBOW! Ospreay rebounds, MJF SWATS the lariat, gets Ospreay up but Ospreay slips outta the bomb! MJF blocks the kick again, KNEES Ospreay and runs, but into the TIGER WALL KICK! ENZIGIRI! MJF rebounds, Ospreay slips through the lariat! Ospreay lifts MJF but MJF back drops free! Ospreay sunset flips it, TWO!! MJF sits on the cover, TWO! Ospreay has it, TWO! MJF has it, TWO! ONE! ONE!

Ospreay underhooks to STORM- NO, MJF slips free to DREAM SMASHER! MJF runs, into a SPANISH FLY!! Cover, TWO?!?!? Even after all that, there’s still something in the gas tanks on both men! Little Rock gives a standing ovation for this AEW Match of the Year contender! MJF crawls to a corner, Ospreay pursues. Ospreay puts MJF up top, ROCKS him, but has to slap some fire into himself. Ospreay goes up top, but MJF fires body shots!

MJF gut wrenches Ospreay, but Ospreay kicks free! Ospreay then slingshots back up, to SUPER OSCUTTER!! And HIDDEN BLADE!!! Cover, TWO?!?!? Ospreay can’t believe it and now he’s mad! Ospreay throws off the elbow pad as Little Rock is erupting! MJF sits up, but DUCKS the Hidden Blade! Ospreay tumbles but MJF is also down, too tired to sit back up. Ospreay crawls his way back over, sits MJF up, but MJF SPITS at him!! Ospreay gets REALLY mad now! MJF panics, Ospreay HEADBUTTS him! Ospreay reels MJF in, the fans say do it, and Ospreay says yes! Underhooks, one minute warning, but Ospreay isn’t sure which Storm Attack to use!

Ospreay hauls MJF up, to STORM…! NO, Ospreay stops short of the driver! They fans boo, they want him to end MJF but Ospreay says he’s not like that anymore. Ospreay drags MJF up , MJF SHOVES Ospreay into the ref!! The ref goes down, we’re under 20 seconds! Ospreay hurries over to MJF, DYNAMITE DIAMOND RING PUNCH!!! Cover, MJF WINS!!!!

Winner: MJF, by pinfall (NEW AEW International Champion)

There was literally two seconds left, but MJF pulls it off!! The Wolf of Wrestling proves he’s still just a lowdown dirty snake, but he’s the snake that stole the gold from the #BillyGOAT. Medics help both guys get icepacks, water and oxygen, and MJF rises like a zombie to celebrate himself. The Scumbag may have survived The Aerial Assassin, but will he be ready to go All In against The Bastard?

 

Backstage interview Mark Briscoe & The Acclaimed.

Arkady Aura is with the Sussex County Chicken, as well as Max Caster & Anthony Bowens, and says they asked for this time to talk with each other. Caster says that’s right, because they know Mr. Briscoe is on Team AEW for Blood & Guts. They also know that Team AEW needs a couple more partners, and the only way Mark gets “The Best Wrestler Alive” on his side is when Caster & Bowens join the team together. Plus, The Acclaimed just beat The Bucks a couple weeks ago, they have their number, this is a no brainer! Bowens says that’s right! And they’re also this close to becoming AEW World Tag Team Champions once again, they want a piece of The Bucks’ asses!

Plus, when you think AEW, you think The Acclaimed, because EVERYONE loves The Acclaimed! So they want in! Mark says that’s right! They had his back a couple weeks ago, so as far as he’s concerned, The Acclaimed is in, baby! But Mark’s not the only man calling the shots on this, if you understand what he’s saying. In steps AEW World Champion, Swerve Strickland. Swerve says listen! They’ve been through their fair share of squabbles, so he knows what Acclaimed is all about. Swerve’s also been in battles with The Briscoes, so he knows Dem Boys are real tough people. There is nobody better to go to war with than those you’ve battled against.

Therefore, “y’all ready to get violent?” The Acclaimed say hell yeah! Hands in, and Mark warns The Elite that Team AEW is coming for them! LET’S GO, BABY!! Bowens & Caster follow Briscoe out, Swerve nods, will this team be ready to rip apart The Elite? Will Swerve be ready for The Rainmaker later on tonight in the main event? Or will Kazuchika Okada rain on Swerve’s House and wash it away?

 

“Big Bill” Morrissey is in the ring.

The Redwood introduces to the “seeds, saplings, roots and most importantly, branches,” the Learning Tree, Chris Jericho! The “For The World” Champion is accompanied by “Bad Apple” Bryan Keith as he makes his way out here, waving to Little Rock. The fans boo but Jericho still smiles. “Hi, guys~! Y’know, Little Rock, you need to take a few lessons from The Learning Tree. This city is such a high-crime, violent city, 1,533 crimes for ever 100,000 people, you can do better than that! But let’s talk about Dynamite 250 for AEW, I was on the very first Dynamite, and I’ve been on almost every single one since.

“And the ones that I missed, the Branches were so angry, cards and letters filed in, so I made a promise, I’m never gonna miss another Dynamite again.” The fans boo but Jericho says he’ll be on every one, even until episode 500! It’s like he’s said: When you listen to The Learning Tree, good things happen. And when you don’t, people get hurt, dammit! This isn’t right! Jericho is begging us all to listen to him! Look to those who haven’t. Shibata’s arm, Hook getting that fireball to his face, that’s horrible. And then Samoa Joe is literally driven through a wall because he wasn’t listening to The Learning Tree!

Jericho is begging us, this has to stop! People are getting hurt! At this point, everyone should realize they need to listen to Jericho. Surely everyone knows the teachings of Jericho are so important. Who would be crazy enough not to listen? Who would be psychotic enough not to use the teachings of Jericho? Who would be maniacal enough to- IS THAT MINORU SUZUKI!? Jericho is very worried seeing the Meanest Man in the World returning here to AEW! Suzuki has a paper in his hands, but what could it be? Suzuki goes to the ring and fans get fired up. Suzuki waits, and he steps in at “KAZE NI NARE~!”

Suzuki stares Jericho down while the fans cheer him on. Suzuki looks at the FTW Championship, then he snatches Jericho’s mic. “Next week…” Suzuki holds up the paper, Keith snatches it, and Keith reads it for Jericho. This is an official order from AEW management. The Redwood AND Bad Apple are banned from ringside for Jericho VS Suzuki, an FTW Championship match! Suzuki then HEADBUTTS Jericho down! Bill goes to help Jericho and Keith backs up. Suzuki grins and waves, “Bye, guys~!” Jericho looks to be fearing for his life now that he knows there is someone crazy enough to ignore his teachings. Will the King of Pancrase cut down The Learning Tree?

 

The Elite speak.

Nicholas asks Matthew and Okada if they heard all that. The Elite heard what The Acclaimed, Mark Briscoe and Swerve Strickland had to say, and it is ridiculous! What pisses them off even more is that The Acclaimed think they’re just gonna become two-time AEW Tag Team Champions. Not on their watch! Matt says what those guys need is a reminder about just who the hecc they are! This is THE Elite, the greatest team in AEW. And after next week, they’ll have all the gold and all the power! Nick points out it won’t be all the gold. Swerve is still AEW World Champion. Well, Matt says after what they do to Swerve, that title might just end up vacated.

Because see, they’re dealing with the most dangerous people in the business. They’re going up against The Young Bucks, the greatest tag team ever. They’re dealing with the Continental Champion, The Rainmaker, Kazuchika Okada. They’re dealing with the unpredictable Scapegoat, the TNT Champion, Jack Perry. And Matt’s favorite part: making his return to The Elite, Hangman Adam Page! And oh, in steps the TBS Champion, Mercedes Mone! The CEO says hi to the EVPs, and she thanks them for banning Britt Baker from even being backstage tonight so that she can’t ruin Dynamite 250 for them.

Matt says let’s just say there’s no drama coming from The DMD to the CEO, via the EVPs. Okada whispers something to Matt and Matt asks if Mone will do the dance for them. Oh, her CEO shuffle? Of course! C E O! C E O! Ok, got to go~! Mone heads out, Okada wipes himself down. He claims it’s just really hot back here. Matt & Nick say okay, sure. But will The CEO still be golden like The Elite? Or will she end up the Native Beast’s next meal?

 

AEW TBS Championship: Mercedes Mone VS Nyla Rose!

Well, as we just heard, there will be no Britt Baker anywhere tonight because that is how bad she got under The CEO’s skin. Mone even made sure this Open Challenge would not allow Britt to answer it, so in steps a different former AEW Women’s World Champion. Will Mone find there are threats all over the AEW roster? Or will she still be making that double champion type bank?

The introductions are made, the teal title is raised, and we see who is truly the Face of TBS!

The bell rings and the two circle. The fans rally and duel, the two tie up, and Mone tries but she can’t push Nyla back at all! Nyla puts Mone in a corner, Mone goes up the ropes, but the ref counts. Nyla lets off but Mone scuffs her. Nyla is annoyed, but she mocks Mone’s dance. Nyla runs up, Mone leaps over, but then Nyla runs up again. Mone gets around, waistlocks, but Nyla THROWS her away! The fans rally, Nyla storms up but Mone drop toeholds her onto ropes! Mone CLUBS and stomps away on Nyla. Mone drags Nyla up to stomp into a corner, but the ref counts. Mone digs her boots in, but lets off at 4.

Mone backs off to then storm back up and drag Nyla up. Mone talks trash, but Nyla reels her in! Nyla suplexes, and she holds Mone up, does a squat or two, but Mone slips free! Mone CLUBS Nyla, runs, but Nyla scoops her! Nyla stops the tilt-o-whirl, and shouts, “Have you lost your mind?!” Nyla suplexes to hang Mone out to dry! Nyla KNEES Mone, goes to the corner and climbs, and the fans fire up for the GUILLOTINE KNEE DROP! Nyla drags Money to the cover, TWO!! Mone survives and Nyla is frustrated, but Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Nyla drags Mone up, ELBOWS her down, then she drags Mone into a backbreaker rack across her knee! Mone endures, even as Nyla pushes her down! Mone fights free with kicks, then fires forearms. Nyla ROCKS Mone right back! Nyla then torture racks Mone to thrash her around! Mone endures, slips down, but Nyla blocks the arm-drag! Nyla whips Mone into the corner, then runs in, only for Mone to move! Nyla POSTS herself, then Mone goes to the apron. Mone BOOTS Nyla into the post! Nyla falls back, Mone soaks up the cheers and jeers, then she sits Nyla down. METEORA! Mone drags Nyla to a cover, TWO!

Mone is upset so she rains down fists! The ref reprimands, Mone lets off to swagger around. Mone stalks Nyla, stomps her around, then bumps her off buckles. Mone stands Nyla up for forearm after forearm, then she climbs up to rain down fists! Mone goes to nine, soaks up the cheers and jeers, but Nyla brings Mone off the corner! Mone RANAS Nyla away, hurries to run, and she METEORAS again! Cover, TWO! Mone is frustrated but Nyla’s a former champion for a reason. Mone drags Nyla up, and clamps on with a COBRA TWIST! Nyla endures, even as Mone puts on the pressure. Mone ELBOWS Nyla in the ribs, but Nyla powers out with a hip toss!

Mone stands, blocks a boot and KNEES Nyla back. Mone runs, slips around, and has a SLEEPER! Dynamite 250 returns to single picture while Nyla starts to fade! The fans rally, Nyla fights up, and she swings Mone around into a facelock! Nyla snap suplexes Money away! The fans fire up while Mone flounders to a corner. Nyla snarls, rises up, and runs in to back body block! And then LARIAT! Mone staggers back up, Nyla runs in at the corner and SPLASHES! Mone sits down, Nyla fires up and Little Rock is with her! CANNONBALL! Nyla drags Mone to a cover, TWO!! Mone survives, showing why she’s been champion all over the world.

Nyla snarls, and she goes up the corner. Mone stands to kick the leg! Nyla falls, Mone goes up and up to VADER BOMB! Nyla sputters, Mone gets moving, BOOT WASH! Mone pushes Nyla, goes up the corner, and she METEORAS again! Cover, TWO!! Nyla survives and Mone can’t believe it! Mone drags Nyla up, turns her, but Nyla’s too big to Gory Especial! Nyla RAMS Mone into the corner, the fans duel, but Nyla puts Mone up top. Nyla then climbs up to have Mone’s arm. But Mone fires elbows on Nyla! Mone adjusts position, and SUPER BULLDOGS! Mone then brings out a glove, all to mock Britt!

Mone puts on her glove, spells out “C! E! O!” RINGS OF SATURN, and then the LOCKJAW!! Nyla BITES Mone’s fingers!! That’s what Mone gets! But then DRIBBLES Nyla’s face off the mat, and puts on the STATEMENT MAKER! Nyla taps, Mone wins!

Winner: Mercedes Mone, by submission (still AEW TBS Champion)

Mone may not be able to do it like The DMD, but she still wins out and holds up both belts. Mone then spots a fan with a sign, “DMD > CEO,” and she snatches that sign! Mone RIPS the sign up, and the fan wearing the Sting mask is upset. That fan pie faces Mone!? Because surprise! It’s BRITT BAKER!! The DMD suck into the show and The CEO is running for her life!! Security surrounds Mone to shield her from Britt! The guards then swarm Britt, and Mone is safe, for now. Will Britt have her Wembley Stadium moment with Mone whether Mone likes it or not?

 

Jack Perry speaks.

The Scapegoat flips a coin, then tells Darby Allin, “You wanted to get my attention? Well, you’ve got it now. All you had to do was ask. Did you really have to go and hurt Brandon Cutler? Maybe what I mean to say is, do you think I give a s*it about Brandon Cutler?” He is standing OVER Brandon! And then THROWS him through a door! Jack SMACKS Brandon off a boiler, then tells Darby to come find Jack tonight. Then Jack will show Darby what real sacrifice looks like. Will The Relentless One get that fight with the TNT Champion after all?

 

Toni Storm is here!

The Leading Lady is back so soon after how brutally Mariah May betrayed her? Wait, no… That’s Mariah May taking her cosplay to a new level. The understudy is now portraying the part of AEW Women’s World Champion as she menacingly makes her way down to the ring. The fans boo the protege for how she did Toni Storm dirty, but Mariah grabs a mic for herself. The fans chant for Toni but Mariah sighs. “Let’s be honest. You all saw it coming. Everybody saw it coming, except Toni Storm.” The fans boo but Mariah says that woman is so desperate for the spotlight, she didn’t realize she was giving it all away.

“The question shouldn’t be ‘why,’ the question should be, ‘Mariah, what took you so long?’ Honestly, I didn’t think it would last this long either. But it was so… easy! And I was having so much fun stringing her along, I just wanted to see how far it would go. But then, I saw Wembley. And I thought, ‘Why take the old horse out back when I can kill it in front of as many people as possible?” The fans boo more but Mariah says she’s been Toni Storm, and now she can be so much more! Fans chant “We Want Toni!” and Mariah smirks. Mariah tells Toni not to worry, she still loves her. In fact, she’s never loved her more than when Toni was on her knees, screaming and crying Mariah’s name. “That was your greatest performance.”

As for Mariah’s greatest performance, that will be at All In! The fans boo more but Mariah says now, AEW is All About Mariah! Mariah then lies back on the mat to revel in it just like Toni would. But will Toni make sure Mariah suffers far worse than what she gave Toni?

 

AEW shares post show footage from Collision.

The Bang Bang Gang returned backstage but they’re asked about being stripped of the Unified World Trios Championships. Juice said hold on, they ain’t been stripped of nothing. Whoever wants these belts will have to pry them out of their cold, dead hands! But then Christopher Daniels and a couple refs appear backstage, and the Fallen Angel knows it isn’t the most popular decision, nor is it fair to the champs, but that’s the rules of AEW. Austin says he isn’t taking these belts! Daniels says it’s either that or they’re suspended and they don’t get a chance to fight for them against The Patriarchy.

Colten says fine, take ’em. Take all nine belts! Daniels gathers them up and Austin tells Christian Cage that they are not scared of a guy with a daddy fetish, some TikTok kid, a stepmom straight outta Brazzers, and a giant lizard! Juice says what will happen is The Collision Cowboys come home, and they come home with their little hardware homies! And if you’re not down with that, they’ve got two words for ya: GUNS UP! Will Rock Hard Robinson, Fully Cocked Colten, and… Austin make sure Captain Charisma and his “sons” never touch the gold? Or can no one stop The Patriarchy from taking over AEW?

 

Swerve Strickland w/ Prince Nana VS Kazuchika Okada!

It is a Champion VS Champion showdown to close this milestone episode, but no titles are on the line. However, Blood & Guts is just next week, and each side is looking for momentum. Will Little Rock belong to Swerve’s House? Or will The Rainmaker prove he’s the top champion in AEW?

The bell rings and the two circle. The fans rally for “Whose House?” “SWERVE’S HOUSE!” The two tie up, Okada headlocks for the takeover but Swerve headscissors.

Swerve snapmares Okada, goes up and FALLING UPPERCUTS! Swerve hits the Griddy and fans cheer! Swerve even mocks the Rainmaker pose! Okada sits up and glares at Swerve. Swerve eggs Okada on, so Okada ROCKS him! Swerve ROCKS Okada back!

The forearms go back and forth, then they pick up speed! Okada dares Swerve to hit him, so Swerve kicks low! Swerve whips, Okada reverses to then FLAPJACK! Swerve tumbles out of the ring but Okada pursues. Okada runs up to kick and DDT to the floor! Swerve writhes and Okada just watches him while Dynamite goes picture in picture.

The ring count climbs, but Okada drags Swerve up. Okada brings Swerve over, SMACKS him off steps, and he stalks Swerve around the way. Okada SMACKS Swerve off the steps again! Okada refreshes the count, then pursues Swerve. Swerve rolls into the ring but Okada drags him out. Okada RAMS Swerve into the barriers! The fans are torn but Okada just goes back into the ring. Swerve rolls in, Okada drags him up, but Swerve fires body shots! Swerve shoves Okada, fireman’s carries, but Okada fights free to go for an arm! Then he hits a NECKBREAKER!

Okada brings Swerve up but Swerve pushes him into a corner. Okada CLUBS Swerve down, whips corner to corner hard, and Swerve falls to his knees. Okada runs in to ELBOW Swerve, and Swerve falls again.

Jack RAMS Darby into railing, Mark returns to help Darby! Security finally separates the factions, which is just fine by The Bucks! But will nothing stop Team AEW from destroying this corrupt Elite once and for all?


My Thoughts:

Now this was an awesome episode of Dynamite. They only advertised three matches, and it turns out that’s all we needed. Ospreay VS MJF was made the opener so they could just go off and give us almost an hour of their best stuff. It kinda makes some PPV matches feel lesser now, but hey, a match of the year candidate is still a match of the year candidate, no matter if it’s TV or PPV. MJF winning out surprised me, but he did cheat so that protects Ospreay. I was hoping for Ospreay VS Pac at All In, but I suppose “The Scumbag VS The Bastard” makes for some fun build. And with how much MJF was taunting Garcia, this has to mean Garcia shows up at All In to go after MJF.

TV Time with Jericho was properly short because we can’t actually drag the show to a screeching halt after how awesome Ospreay VS MJF was. As Jericho started listing qualities like “crazy” and “maniacal,” I just felt Suzuki showing up. Suzuki getting his FTW Championship match with Jericho next week is great, but I’m still thinking Jericho retains. Now, while Keith & Bill are banned from ringside, nothing is stopping Hook from showing up. Hook could go after Jericho after he retains, and that sets up Jericho VS Hook for All In. Which would be interesting because that makes it back to back All In shows for Hook and this FTW Championship.

Good promo from The Bang Bang Gang with Daniels, but like, so filler. Who needed to see them hand over the belts? Or rather, why couldn’t they have figured out to do that during Collision? Very good promo from Mariah May where she completes her transformation into Toni Storm’s replacement. She even phrased it “All About Mariah” to nod how this has been All About Eve the movie, in wrestling form. The fans kept going “What?” just cuz she was taking things slowly, which is rude, but I do feel she could’ve been faster about it. She was definitely going for something with her pacing, but maybe she was also just filling for a little more time. Toni will surely have a response next week or something, though.

Very good promo from Acclaimed with Mark Briscoe and Swerve to establish the Acclaimed joining Team AEW, and very good response promo from The Elite to call them out on it. Though, what a weird detail for Okada to be a Mone simp. He’s married for crying out loud! But that aside, Mone is still tangentially a part of The Elite, and she had a very good match with Nyla tonight. Mone of course found the way to win, but I do appreciate Britt gives us a Sting shoutout by wearing the Sting mask before revealing she was here. Mone running scared was pretty funny, and yeah duh, this match is happening at All In.

In relation, very good promo from Jack Perry, even if poor Brandon had to get beat up again. Jack calling Darby out was good foreshadowing for Darby’s own Sting tribute, and I figured last week that Darby Allin was going to be Team AEW for Blood & Guts. Great main event from Swerve VS Okada that The Bucks of course had to “ruin” to save Okada from a legit loss. At the same time, this keeps either champion from owing the other a title match so close to All In. Great brawl to give us the full 5v5, Blood & Guts is going to be some wild stuff, and it can definitely go either with so many champions involved this time. However, as Mark Briscoe is the only one whose rivalry is NOT in Blood & Guts, he probably takes the loss for Team AEW.

My Score: 9.1/10
