AEW Continental Classic, Blue League: Eddie Kingston VS Claudio Castagnoli!

The Mad King put up his titles for this tournament, but he has yet to score any points! Will he do so by bringing down perhaps his most hated rival? Or will the Swiss Superman guarantee someone else will be carrying the ROH World & NJPW Strong Openweight Championships at Worlds End?

Jon Moxley speaks.

“I have people acting all week like I was supposed to be scared of Rush. Supposed to be scared of this guy. He’s a lot of bark. Dudes have been barking at me my entire life. And it never turns out that they have much bite. Was it a hard match? Yeah. Hell yeah. Will next week against Swerve be a hard match? Yeah. But as they say, ‘It is a shame for the helmsman to be surprised when the wind is unfavorable.’ This is the Continental Classic, baby, it’s supposed to be hard.

“Swerve Strickland’s got a lot of buzz. Buzz is cheap. Being at the top of this sport and staying there is another thing entirely. And it’s very, very costly. For a guy like you, in your position, it’s right habout now when you realize it’s a price you’re not willing to pay. Are you gonna be the guy that takes me out? Whatever will be will be. Next week, Swerve Strickland, Jon Moxley, and the ghosts and the demons that always chase me to the ring. This is gonna be something you’ve never attempted to do before, and it’s gonna be a long night, so I suggest you pack a lunch.”

 

Backstage interview with Hook.

Renee Paquette congratulates the FTW Champion on the big win in last week’s 8 Man Tag, and wants to talk about this issue he now has with Wheeler Yuta. But then Yuta himself walks in and says he’ll explain. Hook is a paper champion amateur! Renee shouldn’t waste time interviewing guys like Hook when she could be interviewing honorable champions like Yuta. Hook says Yuta’s real “honorable,” kicking Shibata in his balls. Yuta says he pinned Shibata to become a record-setting THREE-TIME ROH Pure Champion. He can do it under Pure Rules, or under Hook’s rules if he wants.

Yuta is tired of dealing with Hook, when Hook started this by sticking his nose in Yuta’s business. Yuta can make Hook’s life a living hell for as long as he wants, but he wants to put Hook down. So they’ll do it under FTW Rules. Hook says bet. We’re getting Champion VS Champion to the extreme, but will either belt be on the line?

 

Willow Nightingale VS Mercedes Martinez w/ Diamante!

Backstage interview with the former Jericho Appreciation Society.

Renee is with Daddy Magic, Cool Hand Ange & Big Hurt Hager ahead of the tag match against Penta & Komander, in front of the hometown crowd of Montreal. Menard cannot wait, but Hager wants to talk about Danhausen! He’s under investigation for stealing Hager’s hat, and then sticking it down his pants! Hager is getting FBI and the Mounties on it! Does he look like he’s kidding? He’s got hat fever! Hager is out.

Well, okay, Menard continues what he was saying. When he thinks of Montreal, he thinks of the greats! Celine Dion, Jacques Villeneuve, “The Rocket” Richard, and tonight they add two more names! Menard & Parker! NO DOUBT ABOUT IT! Parker asks Renee if she knows just how many times they’ve sat in these very stands, stared down at that wrestling ring, and dreamed of being in there? Well tonight is the night it happens! They are home, in front of their fans, friends and family, the people they love! Menard goes on and on in French, and then in walks Ruby Soho.

Saraya is not far behind and she has Anna Jay with her. They both knew this was gonna happen. Saraya has Renee move aside because she’s about to be very unladylike. Menard is upset, Saraya says to stop spitting all over the place. They each want the other to handle this situation, so Menard drags Parker along to get ready for the match. Saraya asks Ruby why she wants to hang around that loser for. What is Ruby hiding in her jacket? Saraya reveals Ruby is wearing Parker’s merch! Saraya knew she smelled the scent of betrayal on Ruby! What betrayal? Saraya says Ruby is an evil witch! Just like Toni Storm!

Saraya says Ruby’s never been there for her, so Saraya won’t be there for Ruby next week when she faces Riho! Ruby’s gotta prove herself to Saraya that she still wants to do this! Anna, you keep an eye on Ruby. Saraya storms off, are The Outcasts about to have a complete fallout?

 

Swerve Strickland speaks.

“I don’t feel pain when it comes to me chasing my goals. When it comes to me shutting people up and proving everybody wrong. Nine points, I’m the leader in this Classic. But let’s not stop there. This is bigger than this tournament. I’m the leader of this damn company. Whether it’s in the ring, whether it’s on PPVs, whether it’s me getting interviewed on TMZ, or whether I’m on the field in Jacksonville talking to the NFL commissioner, Roger Goodell, I run the industry.

“So really, save all this footage. Please. Stock all this up. Because I’m gonna run this all back when I’m the leader and on top of AEW as the world champion, making history. But first it starts with the Continental Classic. Jon Moxley next, Dallas, Texas. I can’t wait. You called yourself the Ace? I’m hungry. I’m feasting. I need that. You say you drink blood, you say you crush bones, you say you do all this violent stuff. I do, too. I’ll see you in Texas. Whose house? Swerve’s house.”

 

Wardlow VS Willow Mack!

The War Dog decimated AR Fox, and that didn’t sit right with Fox’s friend. Will the Return of the Mack put Wardlow in his place? Or will the Maestro of Mayhem write another Powerbomb Symphony in Montreal?

The bell rings and fans chant for “WARD~LOW!” Mack and Wardlow slowly step up, then tie up. Mack goes for a leg but Wardlow throws him away. Fans chant for “MEAT! MEAT! MEAT!” Mack fires off haymakers and runs, but into a DROPKICK! Fans fire up but Wardlow just paces. Mack checks his face, but Wardlow RAMS him into the corner! And he fires off UPPERCUTS!

The House of Black speak.

Malakai reviews FTR’s situation: Their best friend in the world is gone, and the only people that truly care about them is… Well, the House. And Buddy adds that if FTR doesn’t believe them, it will be the end of FTR. Will Cash Wheeler & Dax Harwood understand that if you can’t beat them, it’s best to join the House of Black?

 

Ethan Page VS Kenny Omega!

All Ego may be having an I Quit match with Tony Nese at ROH Final Battle, but he wasn’t going to pass up the opportunity to face The Cleaner in their home country. Will Hamilton or Winnepeg be celebrating the most when they can claim the title of hometown to the King of Canada?

All Ego came through on his word to give it his all, but it still wasn’t enough to best The Best Bout Machine! Omega still shows Ethan respect by raising his hand, what will it take for All Ego to prove he’s worthy of gold?

Wait, speaking of gold, AEW World Tag Team Champion “Big Bill” storms out here and BOOTS Omega down on stage!! Fans boo, Ethan hurries to go help Omega but Bill laughs and gets away while Ethan hobbles up the ramp. Fans boo but are Big Bill & Ricky Starks making sure the Golden Jets can never cash in their golden tickets?

 

Backstage interview with CJ Perry.

Lexi Nair is with CJ and brings up Andrade taking on Bryan Danielson tonight in the Continental Classic. There is a lot riding on this match tonight, can she walk us through the pressure they’re feeling? CJ says if you look at Andrade’s résumé, Andrade was born to do this. He is a multiple time singles champion, multiple time tag team champion, and multiple time trios champion. He has won gold in five different weight classes across four different countries, flies higher than any Cruiserweight, hits harder than any Heavyweight, and has all the tools to beat Bryan tonight!

But then Miro storms in and says HE is CJ’s husband, and is trying to figure out the last time CJ said so many good things about him. Lexi says she’ll leave this to them and exits. Miro asks why CJ is so mad when he simply told her to stay home. He is the bread winner, she is the queen. Is he really that delusional? He told her to stay home to cook, clean and listen, and then “denounces” her! Well, a woman’s gotta get her hands dirty every now and again. When his dad went fishing, his mom cleaned the fish. When his dad killed boars with his bare hands, his mom guts them.

When Miro hunts, CJ cleans. But don’t worry, he won’t touch Andrade at all. But once the tournament is finished, so is Andrade! The Redeemer storms off, simply counting the days until he can unleash his wrath on The Idol. Will Andrade be ready for when that day comes?

 

Julia Hart speaks.

“Being the Princess of the Black Throne comes with lots of responsibilities. Number one: Being the TBS Champion. Number two: Always honoring the House. And number three: Always knowing what’s behind everyone’s mask. I can see behind everyone’s masks. Some disgusting, some brilliant, I don’t judge. But there is one in particular I can’t seem to figure out: The Living Dead Girl, Abadon.” Abadon whispers that soon enough, the Hart stops beating! Forces of darkness are set for a collision, but who will come away with the gold?

 

Penta El Zero Miedo & Komander w/ Alex Abrahantes VS Matthew Menard & Angelo Parker!

While Top Flight has accepted the trios challenge, Penta & Komander are tuning up for that match. Will there be #CEROMIEDO in Montreal? Or will Daddy Magic & Cool Hand Ange make themselves living legends in their hometown?

The teams sort out and Menard starts against Penta. Fans sing “OLE~ OLE OLE OLE~! OLE~, OLE~!” Menard and Penta circle, and Pneta says listen! “CERO! MIEDO!” Menard says, “Oh you piece of crap!

Winners: Penta El Zero Miedo & Komander, by pinfall

A killer combination and they’re still going to add El Hijo Vikingo to the mix! Will the lucha trio ground Top Flight? Or will Action Andretti & The Martin Brothers simply use Penta’s team as a launch pad to the top?

 

Nigel McGuiness sits down with Keith Lee and Shane Taylor.

Nigel notes that at one point, the Pretty Boy Killers were one of the most dominant tag teams in ROH. Shane says at the height of their dominance, “dis bish” Keith decided to jump ship. Shane doesn’t see that drive to be the best and take over anymore. If Keith is gonna bring that Keith to Final Battle, he “should’ve let that disease kill you.” Keith tells Shane that he’ll make a couple things clear. “Just like physics doesn’t have an answer for me, Lady Death doesn’t have an answer for me, I guaran-damn-tee that Shane Taylor doesn’t have an answer for Keith Lee. You will learn your lesson.”

Final Battle is on the horizon, and it might be the biggest and wildest one yet! Who will stand tall when the Pretty Boy Killers collide once and for all?

 

AEW shares the reactions after last Wednesday’s Gold League competition.

Rush is angrier than he was before losing to Moxley, and Lethal is frustrated and furious being mathematically eliminated from the finals. But Jay White says Lethal still is one of the greats, it’s just that The Switchblade is a cut above. Mark Briscoe doesn’t wanna talk about how he lost again, he just wants to get going. Will El Toro Blanco, Black Machismo and the Sussex County Chicken just have to settle for being someone’s spoiler now?

 

AEW Continental Classic, Blue League: Bryan Danielson VS Andrade El Idolo!

The American Dragon just defeated the Dragon Slayer last night on Rampage, but he’s not going to slow down! Will Bryan continue to be arrogant in victory? Or will he have to see if he can be arrogant in defeat?

The bell rings and we’re on the clock. Bryan and Andrade shake hands and the fans cheer the sportsmanship. The two circle, tie up, and Andrade wrenches an arm.

And then Andrade hauls Bryan up, hammerlocks and LA SOMBRA DDT!!! Cover, ANDRADE WINS!

Winner: Andrade El Idolo, by pinfall (gains 3 points; Bryan earns 0)

No mercy from Andrade, at least not bell to bell. He does check on Bryan after, just as Doc Sampson does. The BCC hurry out here, Yuta checking on Bryan while Claudio backs Andrade down. Andrade is offended, he was showing Bryan respect! The ref stops these two from fighting, Andrade and Claudio have to save it for their Blue League match. Will El Idolo stay undefeated even through to Worlds End? Or will the Swiss Superman look to rebound next round?


My Thoughts:

A great Collision, though bit redundant having a Gold League recap vignette that also featured some of Moxley’s and Swerve’s promos that we got in full. But it’s not like they could not do them all at once to save time, right? Sorry, I’m being sarcastic. But a small gripe when Moxley’s full promo and Swerve’s full promo were both really good. And both Blue League matches tonight were awesome and great choices to bookend the night. Eddie finally getting a win and Bryan finally taking a loss make great moves for the halfway-ish point of this tournament. Mostly, Eddie needs to stay alive so he can actually fight to defend his titles.

Claudio and Andrade have a very natural reaction given how the BCC gets. Claudio VS Andrade is going to be great stuff, too. Miro’s promo with CJ was good, too, bringing up the traditional gender roles and how that’s what Miro grew up with but not CJ. Andrade better hope he makes it to Worlds End and the tournament finals to delay Miro coming for him. At the same time, feels very likely that the moment Andrade’s match week five ends and he’s not going to the semifinals, Miro pounces to set up a match between them for Worlds End instead.

Good promo from Julia and Abadon to add some hype to their match. Really lends to hwo Abadon herself is supernatural, something that was only superficial up until this point. And good promo from Yuta and Hook to set up their match. FTW Rules from these two is going to be great, but I would hope they come up with a championship stipulation. Is this for the FTW title? Will Hook then have to try Pure Rules in a match for the ROH title? Will there be something even wilder for Winner Takes All? We can only hope.

Great match from Willow and Mercedes, great save made by Kris, feels like we’re getting a Street Fight Tag match between Willow & Kriss VS Diamante & Mercedes. Great promo from X-JAS with The Outcasts to add more to the Parker x Ruby romance. Saraya is on her last nerve with this, she is about to replace Ruby with Anna so that Ruby then gets to spend more time with Parker. Great tag match from Menard & Parker VS Penta & Komander, but given the stories behind these teams, it made sense Penta & Komander won. The loss adds to the woes that’ll break X-JAS up while the luchadores have momentum before facing Top Flight.

Decent squash from Wardlow on Mack, but the detail was Wardlow throwing up the horns. Some would call those devil’s horns, perhaps another tease that Wardlow is among the minions beating up on people. And great match from Ethan VS Omega, but I figured Omega would win that. Omega needs to stay strong while Jericho is “hurt” (who knows how much is kayfabe and how much is shoot), but then I should’ve figured Big Bill would attack Omega so that Omega is the same as Jericho. Golden Jets are probably gonna be absent for a few weeks, and then they make a heroic return to go after Starks & Bill to set up the title match for Worlds End.

My Score: 8.8/10

Darby Allin VS The Beast Mortos!

The ESports Stadium in Texas fires up as The Relentless One is back in action! He’s getting ready for Blood & Guts this Wednesday, but will he be red hot going into Dynamite? Or will he not get past the beast standing in his way?

The bell rings and the fans rally up. Darby circles with Mortos, they tie up, and Mortos powers Darby to a corner. The ref counts, Mortos lets off and the two reset.

Winner: Darby Allin, by pinfall

Both men were relentless tonight, but it’s Darby who survives their Collision! Will Darby be even more dangerous when he steps inside the double ring, double cage that is Blood & Guts?

Darby gets a mic to have his music cut. He says people tell him to slow down, or else he won’t be able to walk when he’s 30. Well, he is 30 now, and he feels wonderful! The only thing is, Darby doesn’t take the night off. Darby doesn’t forget being a dishwasher. He’d rather get kicked in the face any night of the week than go back to that. And we’re getting ready for Blood & Guts, and it’s very fitting that Darby’s finally in one. If anyone saw Sting’s final match, they saw Darby’s guts hanging out! He has a scar on his side that looks like Harry Potter’s forehead, and it stings every day. The fans cheer that!

Darby wants to talk the EVPs for a second, The Young Bucks. What sucks about them is that they never come to Collision, they never advertise the shows on the news or radio. It is Darby! AEW is Darby’s baby now! And he will stop at nothing to make sure everyone knows! Darby wouldn’t be here if not for The Bucks, that’s no secret, but man, they suck so bad now. And Jack Perry… Oh, Jack Perry. TNT Champion? No, that title means everything to Darby, and he will stop at nothing until the belt is around his waist again. So All In is around the corner… If Jack has the balls, let’s play! Darby is ready for Blood & Guts, see you Wednesday!

 

The Acclaimed speak.

Max Caster says, “Yo! Listen! The Elite, Blood & Guts next week, Team AEW is about to stomp on those tiny little nuts.” Billy Gunn tells Caster to just stop right there. That is not what the match is about. It is not about Bowens being The Scissor King, or about Caster being a rapper. It is about being the best wrestlers alive, and about being a badass! They need to bring this fight to The Elite! Time to nut up or shut up! Daddy Ass is fired up for his boys, and that fires them up! Bowens & Caster are ready to get serious, will they make The Young Bucks pay for playing games with them?

 

Skye Blue VS Hikaru Shida!

To be the best, you gotta beat one of the best, and that is why Chicago Skye called out the former THREE-TIME AEW Women’s World Champion! Will Skye use this Collision to build momentum? Or is she just going to give Shida her own rebound victory towards a title?

The bell rings and Skye BOOTS Shida down! Skye bumps Shida off buckles, stomps a mudhole in, then lets off. Skye brings Shida around to bump off buckles again, then stomps her more. Shida hits back, but Skye ROCKS her for it. Skye brings Shida around again, but Shida breaks free to ROCK Skye! Skye fires another forearm, but so does Shida! They go back and forth, faster and faster, then Shida fires off a flurry! Shida ROCKS Skye, fires up, then catches Skye to spin her. Skye ELBOWS Shida first, then runs, but into a KNEE! Shida runs but Skye SHINING WIZARDS at the ropes! Skye snapmares and runs up, but Shida blocks!

Shida spins Skye, ducks the spin kick and rolls Skye up! Skye rolls through but Shida DROPKICKS her out of the ring! The fans fire up and Shida watches Skye go around the way. Shida goes up and CROSSBODIES! Down goes Skye and the ref has Doc Sampson check. Shida gets herself a chair while she waits, and the fans fire up while Collision goes picture in picture.

Shida paces while Skye is checked out. That fall really rocked her, maybe even beat up a leg. Shida paces, then goes back into the ring to wait. Shida keeps the fans fired up, but it doesn’t look good for Skye. Shida checks with the ref, and it seems the match has been called! Shida wins by default!

Winner: Hikaru Shida, by medical stoppage

A real shame for Skye, as she was the one who wanted this fight. But Shida is still moving on, will she be waiting on the champions after All In?

 

Lancer Archer is going nuts backstage!

He is beating up and throwing around prospects left and right! One guy walks in, sees what’s going on, and turns right around, only for Archer to grab him and CHUCK him into the garage door! “It seems everyone has forgotten who the Murderhark Monster is! Everyone’s forgotten just what I can do. And it’s time to remind you all!” Archer CHUCKS a trash can into another guy, #EverybodyDies! Who else will be unfortunate enough to face Archer’s wrath?

 

Chris Jericho speaks.

“Hi, guys~! And hello, Minoru Suzuki. We’ve been waiting a long time for this match, haven’t we? For four years, I’ve been thinking of Suzuki VS Jericho. For four years, I’ve been wanting this match in the Tokyo Dome, or on Dynamite. And now, this Wednesday, the match comes true. It’s a dream match for sure. First time ever! But for you, Minoru, it’s gonna be a nightmare. Get ready for some night sweats and night terrors just thinking what I’m gonna do to you, and even worse after the match. They talk about Blood & Guts this Wednesday. This match is gonna be far more violent than that.

“They call you The Murder Grampa, one of the most violent men who ever came outta Japan. Well, Suzuki, if there’s anybody that can match you blow for blow, experience for experience, match for match, it’s me. So Suzuki, I can’t wait to teach you a few very valuable lessons. And one of them is gonna be you should’ve never turned down The Learning Tree when I asked you to be my partner, and you never should’ve come to the ring during TV Time last week on Dynamite. Suzuki, this is it, one for the ages. Like I said, first time ever, Jericho, Suzuki, Learning Tree VS the most violent man in Japanese history, I can’t wait.

“We’ll see you on, Wednesday, Suzuki, you’re not gonna like it. Thanks, guys!” The Learning Tree has been rather delusional these days, but has he reached a new level with this? Or does he have something up his sleeve to help him survive Suzuki?

 

Rey Fenix w/ Alex Abrahantes VS Tony Nese w/ The Premier Athletes!

The Immortal Firebird just won big last night on Rampage alongside Penta El Zero Miedo, but there’s no slowing down with him! However, “Smart Mark” Sterling has everyone stop so his client can say something very important. Nese takes the mic, even as fans boo, and Nese says “When they said everything is bigger in Texas, I’m gonna be honest. I thought they were talking about the cars, the houses. But the reason why they say that, now i can see, is because all of you are terribly, terribly FAT!” The fans boo but Nese says yes, it upsets him, too. But it isn’t entirely their fault. It is not. It’s because they haven’t had real athletes to look up!

Who’re they looking up to? The under-500 Texas Rangers? So, Nese’s lawyer, THE GREATEST lawyer in pro-wrestling, Sterling has made a contract to give a lucky individual an opportunity. But more importantly, it gives every single piece of trash here tonight to see what a real athlete looks like! But here comes Fenix! Will he make Nese regret flexing on Texas?

The bell rings and the fans rally for “LUCHA! LUCHA!” Fenix and Nese circle, feel things out, and they tie up. Nese wrenches, wristlocks, and grinds the arm. Fenix moves around, uses ropes to flip through, and then he wrenches to wristlock back. The fans rally as Fenix twists the wrist, but Nese fights up. Fenix HEADBUTTS the arm, but Nese fights up again. Fenix wrenches, Nese rolls, and then Nese throat chops! The fans boo and the ref reprimands, but Nese SOBATS Fenix to run and BOOT! And WHEEL KICK! Cover, TWO! Fenix is still in this, but Nese soaks up the heat. Nese stalks Fenix but the fans chant “You Still Suck!”

Nese CLUBS Fenix with crossface forearms, taunts the fans, then he drags Fenix up. Fenix knees free, ducks ‘n’ dodges, then springboards, but the ropes give out! Cover, TWO! Nese drags Fenix by his leg, stomps away, and Fenix crawls away. Nese stalks Fenix, stomps the leg more, then brings him up. Nese CHOPS, Fenix CHOPS, repeat! The fans “WOO~!” as the CHOPS keep going! Fenix fires up and he CHOPS! Nese falls back against ropes while Fenix eggs him on! Nese kicks low, whips, but Fenix reverses and DROPKICKS! Nese bails out, Fenix gets the bad leg moving, and he builds speed, only for Sterling to save Nese!

Fenix slides out, glares at Sterling, then ROCKS Nese! Daivari steps up but that’s a distraction. Same for Josh Woods! The ref reprimands, Nese blocks the superkick to then SUPERKICK back! Fenix falls, Nese slides into the ring, and that lets the Premier Athletes mug Fenix! The fans boo but the ref misses it all as Collision goes picture in picture.

Fenix clutches his leg, drags himself up, and Daivari talks trash on the fans. Nese AX HANDLES Fenix, but then Fenix shoves Nese. Nese ROCKS Fenix, CHOPS him again, but Fenix just CHOPS back! Nese kicks the bad leg, then whips Fenix hard into railing! Fenix falls over, Nese flexes while soaking up heat, and he goes back for Fenix. Nese puts Fenix in the ring, stomps him, then paces around. Nese drags Fenix up, TOSSES him up, and the Premier Athletes mug Fenix again! Fenix tumbles away to the ramp while Abrahantes protests, but that just lets even Sterling get his shots in! Fenix storms up on Sterling and he runs away as Collision goes to break.

Collision returns and Nese covers, TWO! Fenix is still in this, but Nese pushes him around. Fenix CHOPS back! Fenix eggs Nese on, Nese SLAPS, so Fenix CHOPS! Nese fires a haymaker, talks trash, but Fenix fires body shots. Nese stands Fenix up to CHOP him back down! Nese drags Fenix to a cover, ONE! Nese is annoyed but he drags Fenix up. Fenix CHOPS, and CHOPS, and CHOPS, CHOPS, CHOPS! Nese throat chops! The ref reprimands, but Nese HOTSHOT BULLDOGS! Then he slingshots to roll Fenix up, TWO! Nese deadlifts to a POWERBOMB! Cover, TWO!! Fenix survives and the fans fire up!

Nese and the Premier Athletes are frustrated but the fans rally behind Fenix. Nese drags Fenix up, pushes him to a corner and he fires haymakers! The fans boo but Nese sits Fenix down. The ref counts, Nese lets off, and Nese brings down the kneepads. Nese goes side to side, but Fenix somersaults to SPIKE-RANA! Cover, TWO!! Nese survives, but Fenix BOOTS him! Fenix runs in to JUMP SOBAT! Nese wobbles, Fenix brings him around to wrench, but Daivari gets on the apron! Fenix runs Daivari off, but Nese runs in! Fenix DUMPS Nese out onto Daivari! The fans fire up and Fenix builds speed to FLY! Down go ALL the Premier Athletes!

The fans are thunderous for “A E DUB! A E DUB!” while Sterling panics. Fenix rises, and he puts Nese in. The fans rally behind Fenix as he climbs. Fenix reaches the top rope, but Sterling gets on the apron! So Fenix tightrope walk PENALTY KICKS him down! But Nese rolls Fenix! SOBAT HEEL KICK! Nese goes up and up and PREMIER 450! Cover, TWO!! Nese is furious that Fenix survives but the fans are thunderous! Nese drags himself over and brings Fenix up. Nese pump handles, lifts, but Fenix slips free and SUPERKICKS! Nese leans against ropes, Fenix goes up, tightrope PENALTY KICK! Fenix goes up to FROG SPLASH! Cover, Fenix wins!

Winner: Rey Fenix, by pinfall

It was practically 4v1 but Fenix still wins out! Will this momentum help Fenix head after whatever championship he wants after All In?

 

Tony Schiavone is in the ring.

He welcomes us back to the ESports Stadium, and welcomes in two men AEW loves, it’s FTR! The fans fire up as Cash Wheeler & Dax Harwood make their way out, having made their return just last week to help Tommy Billington against The Don Callis Family. FTR joins Schiavone in the ring and he brings up that big return to stand up to the Don Callis Family. Thankfully they did, so he asks their thoughts. Cash says if you ask him, Dynamite Kid Tommy Billington has one of the brightest futures in wrestling today, and they weren’t gonna let the Don Callis Family walk all over him.

But Cash also wants to talk FTR. It is no secret that the past two years has been the greatest run in their careers. The fans cheer that! Schiavone says the fans agree with Cash, and Cash says he thinks so, too. But while this was something Cash didn’t wanna talk about, when FTR was told they had time to talk tonight, he figured he should get it off his chest. It is no secret that Cash has been going through personal stuff that has dragged his name through the mud, is a cloud over his head, and he has had more stress than he could ever tell us all. Every single night, when he came out here, that was his escape.

This is where Cash could forget all that other crap, even when it wasn’t true. Every week, night after night, the fans helped Cash get through that. All that out there didn’t matter to him! It only mattered that he wrestled every match like it was his last, because he didn’t know if it was gonna be his last. So it isn’t a secret that Cash is a hot head, but it won’t happen outside this ring. Now the only people FTR has their eyes set on are The Young Bucks! So maybe, just maybe, time to go Buck Hunting!

Dax tells Schiavone that 2022 and 2023 were good times for FTR fans. FOUR world tag titles, THREE incredible matches with The Briscoes, and 58 MINUTES with Bullet Club Gold in Calgary. And the cherry on top: Beating the Bucks in front of 80 THOUSAND people in Wembley Stadium. But now, this is the present, and their win-loss record isn’t so great. Back in April, Dax had a serious back injury that he thought he wasn’t gonna come back from. But what really bothered him was The Bucks leap-frogging FTR as the best tag team in the world, and that didn’t sit well with him. The fans boo, they don’t like it either.

Dax says six weeks ago, he was sent home to rehab. He watched Collision, Dynamite and Rampage, all in hopes that “our EVPs, our fearless leaders,” would take this tag division back to the top and take it to the Promised Land. Dax was so let down. In six weeks, we haven’t seen The Bucks defend their titles. The fans boo that, too. Dax says maybe, just maybe, this is a big mistake. But starting next week, here in Arlington, Texas, FTR’s road to the AEW World Tag Team Championships begins. FTR starts their road back, and it ends at Wembley Stadium at All In!

And Dax knows sometimes he is rough to deal with, a little abrasive. But if you’ll give him a little grace, a little love, he promises FTR will give you all every bit of passion, love, tears, sweat and whatever else, so that they will become the THREE-TIME AEW World Tag Team Champions! The fans chant for “F T R! F T R!” and Dax tells The Bucks, “This whole thing’s for you. Top Guys, Out!” Just as AEW starts on the homestretch to All In 2024, FTR want to hit it out of the park! Will they get their shot at Matthew & Nicholas? Or are they overlooking The Acclaimed and their own shot at the gold?

 

Backstage interview with Hikaru Shida.

Lexy Nair is with the Shining Samurai and brings up the match tonight. Shida says stop, stop, stop. She came here for a fight, is still looking for a fight, and she wants to fight! Shida wants a fight… with DOCTOR BRITT BAKER!! Welcome back, by the way. And now Britt just wants to be TBS Champion? Get in line! Or does Britt not remember that Shida made her bleed once before? Shida will do it again this Wednesday on Dynamite: Blood & Guts! There could be a lot more blood than TBS bargained for, but will Shida make sure All In’s card is subject to change?

 

Roderick Strong VS Tomohiro Ishii!

The Savior of the Backbreaker will challenge Mark Briscoe for the ROH World Championship next Friday at Death Before Dishonor, right in this same building! However, he’s up against #BigTime Ishii, someone he’s also been itching to fight. Will Roddy be more than ready for the Sussex County Chicken? Or will the Stone Pitbull take a big bite out of him first?

The bell rings and the fans rally for “I-SHI-I! I-SHI-I!” as he circles with Roddy. They tie up, go around, and Ishii puts Roddy on ropes. The ref counts, Ishii lets off slowly, but Roddy CHOPS!

BREAKING NEWS for next week!

Battle of the Belts returns for the 11th edition, following live after Collision! What championships will be on the line as AEW continues towards All In?

 

Dustin Rhodes & The Von Erichs speak.

Kevin Von Erich says it is so great to be here in Texas with his sons and his friend. This is a great night. Kevin remembers working with Dusty, and he learned so much from him. There will never be another like him. Wrestling is changing, there are a lot of differences. Dustin knows, he’s been here a long time, so he can be a real benefit to Marshall & Ross. Dustin thanks Kevin, and says he watched Kevin for years, learned so much from his own father, and he is sure the storm has arrived. One of the greatest wrestling legacies right here in Texas! The Von Erichs, the Rhodes, together for the first time since 1978!

Dustin looks forward to this, and promises that if they listen and watch, they’ll head down a path that is already great. They’ve seen this trio in action before, so believe him when he says, Dustin’s got your back. Will Dustin & The Von Erichs make a natural fit here in AEW?

 

Mark Briscoe speaks.

“Now here we are in the Dog Days of Summer 2024, it’s hot as balls outside, and lemme tell you what else is heating up, the schedule for the ROH World Champion. Got a busy week next week. Next Friday, right here in Arlington, Texas, it’s ROH Death Before Dishonor, Mark Briscoe, Roderick Strong, for the ROH World title!” Mark tells Roddy that they’ve known each other a good long time now, came up in the game together. But Mark warns Roddy, Mark’s gotten wiser since last time. He’s gotten tougher since the last time! So Roddy better be ready! That’s Friday!

But after Friday, one thing’s for certain is that two days ago it was Wednesday! And let’s talk about Wednesday! Blood & Guts! Nashville, Tennessee! Team AEW VS The Elite. Let’s explain something to The Elite: pro-wrestling runs parallel to society in so many ways. And The Elite is the perfect example of what is wrong in the world today. They’re powerful, privileged, and they think they can step on the little man, step on the grind. But Team AEW represents the grind worldwide! Bring yo’ ass, because Mark will be disappointed if they don’t bring the fight! Let’s get violent, baby! RARARARA!

 

Lumberjack match: Thunder Rosa VS Deonna Purrazzo!

La Mera Mera has been daring The Virtuosa to just bring the fight so they can settle this, and she finally got Deonna to accept this fight!

Rosa goes up, but Deonna SLAPS her first! Deonna climbs up after Rosa, and she aims for the lumberjacks! SUPERPLEX onto the lumberjacks! The fans fire up as all 20 some odd ladies are down, and Collision goes picture in picture!

Taya and Diamante check on each other, being sometimes teammates and friends. They find Deonna and Rosa in the pile, get them in the ring, and Deonna stalks Rosa. Rosa fires body shots but Deonna fires a forearm! The forearms go back and forth, harder and harder, then Deonna KNEES low! Deonna throws Rosa by her hair, then soaks up the heat. Deonna taunts Rosa, drags her up, and wrenches an arm to YANK it! Deonna wrenches and YANKS the arm again, and then WRINGS it out! Rosa writhes, Deonna covers, TWO!

Deonna toughs it out, Rosa drags her up, and Rosa fireman’s carries. Deonna fights with elbows, then shoves Rosa away to BOOT her down!

Vacated Unified AEW & ROH World Trios Championships: The Bang Bang Gang VS The Patriarchy!

Juice Robinson & The Gunns didn’t like that AEW management stripped them of these titles just because Jay White got hurt, but they were at least given this title opportunity to win the titles back. Will Rock Hard Robinson, Fully Cocked Colten, and… Austin make The Switchblade proud? Or will Christian Cage and his “sons,” Nick Wayne & Killswitch/Luchasaurus triumph together?

Christian promised his family they’d have championships together, and it would seem his promise came true! The lights flicker, but they stay up. Was that just a glitch? Or is there something Christian is overlooking?


My Thoughts:

A great Collision here to start the “Road to Wembley” series in the ESports Stadium. The stage and ramp look great, but this new theme song they’re using instead of Elton John is not a good song. It has like marching band drums but still tries to be rock ‘n’ roll, they need to scrap it and try again. That aside, Darby VS Mortos was a great opener, and Darby of course won to bring momentum into Blood & Guts. Good promo from Darby to officially challenge Jack Perry for the TNT Championship, you can bet that’s happening. A shame for Skye Blue getting hurt tonight, but taking a crossbody from that high up is hard to judge. Hopefully the injury isn’t too severe. But good promo from Shida after to call out Britt, that’ll be a great match for Dynamite.

Great match from Fenix and Nese, and great win for Fenix, even if that was the extent of things. Great debut for Hologram/Holo.grm, formerly Aramis in AAA. He got to show a lot of what he can do, and even then I think there’s even more in his arsenal he held back. Great match from Roddy VS Ishii but I should’ve figured Taven & Bennett would show up to help Roddy win. Mark and Kyle running out there was logical, and no Cassidy was curious. It subtly builds that new moodiness to Cassidy, given he was in his more negative, dark denim and Pixies song mood on Dynamite. But great promo from Mark to hype up Blood & Guts as well as Death Before Dishonor.

Likewise, great promo from The Acclaimed with Billy making them get serious. Angry Acclaimed could make for some interesting stuff, especially if they kept it up towards their title match. Speaking of, FTR had a great promo but them setting a goal for another match with The Bucks at All In, I guess I was right to think that was the plan all along. Battle of the Belts 11 is coming so maybe that’s where we get Bucks VS Acclaimed? If that’s the case, then it feels like a given that Bucks win to go on to All In, which is a shame for The Acclaimed. Very good promo from Jericho to call out Suzuki, though I don’t think it added anything. They’re maybe leaning a little too hard into Jericho always needing TV time no matter the show, but whatever.

Good promo from Dusty & The Von Erichs, but did they really need to wait until AEW was back in Texas to get that trio going again? Well, given who the new trios champs are, I wouldn’t mind seeing Dusty & The Von Erichs going after The Patriarchy, especially with the obvious “Christian can bring up Dusty” promo waiting to be used. The trios championship match was great stuff, and they did a really good job making us think Bang Bang Gang was gonna win. But being Heels, Christian & The Patriarchy of course won via cheating. The flickering lights were a very subtle nod to The House of Black, but I would’ve preferred just a full tease, maybe just The House applauding from the tron and saying they’ll see Christian soon. And with Kip Sabian watching backstage, I feel like maybe Kip is the third man while Buddy Murphy is away.

My Score: 8.8/10

Six Man Tag: The Conglomeration VS The Undisputed Kingdom!

While Mark Briscoe will be facing Roderick Strong next Friday for the ROH World Championship, his friends of Orange Cassidy, Kyle O’Reilly & Tomohiro Ishii will be taking on Roddy, Matt Taven & Mike Bennett right here tonight! Will Freshly Squeezed, The Violent Artist & the Stone Pitbull tear The Kingdom down? Or will Rampage in Little Rock be Undisputed?

The trios sort out, Roddy starts against Kyle, and the two circle. They feel things out, tie up, and go around. They fight for control in the clinch, end up on ropes, but then move around again. Roddy wrenches an arm, wristlocks, but Kyle spins and drop toeholds. Kyle floats to a waistlock but Roddy fights up. Roddy wrenches out, headlocks for the takeover, but Kyle rolls to a cover! ONE, but Roddy does not let go of the headlock. Roddy shifts to a clinch, but Kyle trips him up and floats for a leg. Roddy kicks at Kyle but Kyle stays close. Roddy wants a leg but Kyle kneels on Roddy to block. They knuckle lock, and Roddy fights up.

Backstage interview with The Outcasts.

Arkady Aura is with Saraya & Harley Cameron, and says we haven’t seen Saraya wrestle since her first round loss in the Women’s Owen Hart Cup. Harley speaks up and asks how that’s supposed to be Saraya’s fault. Why point the finger of blame at her? Maybe it is this company’s fault! Because Saraya has been spending this whole time training, getting “Wembley Ready,” and being an unproblematic icon! Saraya says Harley is right, and do you know why? Because AEW is scared of Saraya. The AEW Women’s Division is scared of her! Because she is the living legend, she understands.

Last year at All In, Saraya had the world at her feet! Now, they’re just keeping her off the show. Harley says doing All In Wembley without Saraya is like doing Beverly Hills Cop without Eddie Murphy! Saraya says yeah, that’s why they’re keeping her away. But they can’t do the show without her because she IS the show. All roads lead to Wembley, baby, and it doesn’t matter who she has to step on to get there. Then just who will The Outcasts take out in order to have their moment?

 

Chris Jericho & “Big Bill” Morrissey w/ Bryan Keith VS The Outrunners!

While The Learning Tree has to defend that “For The World” Championship this Wednesday on Dynamite, he and The Redwood are not shying away from competition.

Bad Apple Keith kicks Truth out of the ring, then he stands tall with his guys. Keith tells the Outrunners to respect Chris Jericho, but he and Bill won’t be around to help Jericho on Wednesday. Will Jericho be able to survive Minoru Suzuki in the shadow of Blood & Guts? Or will Suzuki tear down The Learning Tree #ForTheWorld?

Wait, speaking of Suzuki, here he comes! He has his own match tonight, but he wants to look Jericho in the eye one more time before Dynamite. Will the Meanest Man in the World make an example out of The Butcher?

Minoru Suzuki VS The Butcher!

Rampage returns and The Butcher is already in the ring. The bell rings and Butcher talks some smack on Suzuki. Butcher then fires a forearm, but Suzuki comes back with a forearm of his own.

Winner: Minoru Suzuki, by pinfall

A gritty fight for Suzuki and Butcher, and this was in a normal match! What won’t Suzuki do to Jericho when it is FTW Rules?

 

The Conglomeration speaks.

Mark Briscoe says, “For those of you who may or may not have been living under a rock for the past couple months, you are looking at the group that has come to be known as The Conglomeration. You know about my main man with the game plan, OC, and Kyle O’Reilly. Let me introduce to you Tomohiro Ishii, henceforth to be known as Big Time! That’s right! Here in The Conglomeration, there is only two rules. First and foremost, you gotta be down to conglomerate. And secondly, you cannot in any way, shape or form, be a s*it head!” Kyle shrugs and nods, because it’s true.

Mark then says that brings us to the word of the day! The word of the day is… Discombobulation! Kyle asks the country of origin. American! Can he use it in a sentence? In the midst of Mark’s discombobulation, Roderick Strong cracked him in the jaw with a knee, and stood over him, holding up Mark’s ROH World Championship high in the air! Now that done pissed Mark off, Roddy! He’s known Roddy a long time, and Roddy knows better than that! So next week, Death Before Dishonor, Mark has something for Roddy!

But before that, tomorrow night’s Collision, #BigTime Ishii is going to take Roddy on 1v1! No Kingdom, no Conglomeration, and damn sure no Don Callis Family at ringside! Roddy VS Ishii, and we’ll show y’all how we do in The Conglomeration! Because they’re ’bout to RARARARARA!! The Chicken is all fired up, but will the Stone Pitbull be able to take a big bite out of the Savior of the Backbreaker?

 

Kris Statlander w/ Stokely Hathaway VS Sydni Winnell!

The Galaxy’s Greatest Traitor knows The Babe with the Power wants payback on her just as badly as she wants to run Willow’s life. But while Willow went and won the CMLL Women’s World Championship, Kris has just been grumbling and plotting with Big Stoke. Will Kris make an example out of Sydni tonight?

Sydni flounders but Stokely smiles. Kris runs corner to corner, UPPERCUTS, then goes side to side, but Sydni ELBOWS her! Sydni fires forearm snow and has Kris in a corner! The fans fire up, Sydni fires up, and she whips. Kris reverses to then scoop and pop Sydni around!

Kris tucks Sydni in for STATURDAY NIGHT FEVER!! Cover, Kris wins!

Winner: Kris Statlander, by pinfall

As Stokely says, every night is #StaturdayNight, especially when Kris wins like that. She has Stoke stand on her while she does push-ups just to show off, but will Kris be ready when Willow returns with a vengeance?

 

Holo.grm loads up.

Whoever this mysterious masked man is, he is ready, and he promises that tomorrow night on Collision, we will see him debut! Will Holo.grm prove to be more than meets the eye?

 

BREAKING NEWS for Collision!

Thunder Rosa VS Deonna Purrazzo, with other AEW stars all around ringside, will this be where La Mera Mera and The Virtuosa finally settle the score?

MIEDO!” Penta pie faces Quen, so Quen comes back to say “SHOTS!” “CERO! MIEDO!” “SHOTS!” They go back and forth, taunt for taunt, then Penta CHOPS! Quen is stinging but he composes himself. Quen comes back, CHOPS, but that hurts his hand more than it does Penta’s body! Penta says okay, and he unbuttons Quen’s shirt, to CHOP him down! The fans fire up with Penta as he does a “SHOTS! SHOTS!” dance! So Quen returns to fire forearms!

Winners: The Lucha Brothers, by pinfall

Private Party put up a fight to be sure, but Penta y Fenix just wanted it that much more! Will the Lucha Brothers be watching Blood & Guts very, very closely?


My Thoughts:

A great episode of Rampage here, and even the squash matches served some purpose. Kris crushing Sydni was mostly for momentum, but it felt like that was the first real showing of Kris’ Heel attitude with her trash talking the whole time. Jericho letting Bill do all the work against The Outrunners was naturally how that match was going, but it works perfectly in character and story for them. And Jericho crossing paths with Suzuki before Suzuki puts Butcher away rather quickly was good, too. The go home math is therefore even ahead of their FTW Championship match, but I wonder if Jericho was texting someone who could interfere for him since Keith & Bill can’t. But it can’t be Jeff Cobb, though, he’s locked in for NJPW’s G1 Climax.

Very good promo from The Outcasts, and while Toni Storm VS Mariah May is one title match and Mercedes Mone VS Britt Baker is another, Saraya could end up putting out an open challenge and it is answered by someone big from Stardom or CMLL for a first-time-ever kind of match to make All In even more historic. Great tag team main event from Lucha Brothers VS Private Party, with it mostly being for momentum. Private Party has finally been back on track now that both guys are healthy, but Lucha Bros winning out made sense. Penta & Fenix have been great as a team and as individuals, they’re both primed to take on just about any team or even singles champs if needed.

And great opener from The Conglomeration and The Undisputed Kingdom, even though I’m surprised they did such a Six Man Tag already. The Conglomeration winning could still feed into my idea that Cassidy & Kyle get an ROH Tag Team Championship match at Death Before Dishonor, but it also gives us a reason for Ishii VS Roddy tomorrow night. Great promo from Mark Briscoe in that, too, he continues to be one of the best underappreciated promo guys in all of wrestling today. I feel like Mark is going to retain the title against Roddy given how Shane Taylor is gunning for Mark, but that really depends on if Tony Khan is even paying attention to his own shows.

My Score: 8.7/10
