PLAY BY PLAY

Samoa Joe is here!

Arlington, Texas fires up as the Samoan Submission Machine heads to the ring, a week removed from “The Devil of AEW” taking out MJF! Joe introduces himself, and fans chant for “JOE! JOE! JOE!” Joe says he has come here tonight looking for answers. “Not a long time ago, I made a promise to one MJF that I would keep him whole until I got him to Worlds End, where I would dismantle him personally and become your rightful AEW World Champion.” Fans cheer that! But last week, Joe was made into a liar. As he came out here, “through the machinations of the devil,” MJF was laid out in the back, jeopardizing that world title match. Fans boo that.

“Now one can’t stand on the tracks of destiny and not get run over, so let me explain to you what’s going to happen tonight. See, when I walked in the back, I observed MJF splayed out on the ground, and I saw a beer bottle, a certain beer brand that a certain cowboy likes, busted over his head. And then as I got closer, I noticed the lingering scent of Stetson and disappointment. And I said to myself, ‘I’ve smelled this before!’ And then as I walked around the building in the back, searching high and low for this cowboy, it seemed like a certain Hangman was missing.” But speaking of, here comes Hangman Adam Page!

The fans fire up as Hangman goes right to the ring, gets face to face with Joe as fans chant “COWBOY SHID!” and Hangman gets a mic. If there’s something Joe wants to accuse him of, he should just say it like the man Hangman thought Joe was. If Joe thinks it’s Hangman, if Joe thinks Hangman had anything to do with last week, if Joe thinks he gives the remotest of damns about “The Devil,” Joe would be so wrong! Hangman doesn’t care about the bromance, the laser tag, or the whodunnit game of Clue. Hangman does not care. Joe says Hangman may not care, but he made the mistake thinking Joe came out here to play detective, when Joe’s already made up his mind as an executioner!

Well then, Joe, if there’s something you wanna do about it- “SAMOAAA~! SAMOAAA~!” Roderick Strong & The Kingdom make their way out and Roddy says Joe is so lucky the minions didn’t hurt Joe last week. But hate to say this, listen to Hangman. He is Roddy’s Young Boy and all. Never forget. But listen, have you seen the things that have been happening? Jay White asked for a world title match, he gets attacked. The Acclaimed lose their tag match for MJF, and they get attacked. And then the goons attack MJF on November 29th, but they don’t lay a single shot on him, then leave when Joe comes to his aid.

And last week, we never actually saw the physical attack on MJF, just MJF laying there. C’mon, Joe, think! It’s obviously MJF behind this all! MJF IS the Devil! Roddy wouldn’t lie to Joe, he’s your friend. Hangman steps up but Roddy says he’s not talking to Hangman, he’s talking to his Best Friend By Proxy! But then Hangman DECKS Roddy! Joe is amused while Roddy & The Kingdom regroup outside the ring. The ref hurries in there, Joe gets out as the Cowboy and Savior of the Backbreaker are having their match now! Wait, Roddy gets back in to BLINDSIDE Hangman! The bell rings, is Roddy gonna #NeckTheHalls with him?

AEW Continental Classic, Blue League: Brody King VS Andrade El Idolo!

Blue League spills over into Dynamite as there is ground that needs to be made up. The King of Death is a perfect 2-0 at six points, but so is the Face of Latino Wrestling!

Backstage interview the Von Erichs!

Renee Paquette is honored to be here with Kevin and his sons, Ross and Marshall. How has their time been backstage at AEW? Kevin says he loves AEW. The style, and so many friends here. Oh, friends, eh? Danhausen walks in with his friends, Orange Cassidy & Trent Beretta, as well as Jake Hager’s purple bucket hat. Cassidy & Trent like Renee’s horse pattern outfit. And Cassidy has a match on Rampage this week and needs some partners. How about the Von Erichs join in? Hey, what about Danhausen & Trent? This is a betrayal! No, it’s cuz they’re in Texas. Oh, true. So what do Ross & Marshall say?

Ross says yeah, they’ve got his back. Done deal and hands all in. Even Renee. GIDDY-UP! Best Friends head out, will Freshly Squeezed and the Von Erichs make for a Very Nice, Very Erich team?

 

Kenny Omega is here!

Arlington fires up as The Cleaner heads to the ring! He and Chris Jericho are expected to speak on everything going on between them and the Absolute AEW World Tag Team Champions. Will the Golden Jets still be on course for a tag title match? We find out, after the break.

Dynamite returns as Jericho makes his entrance, and Arlington sings Judas for him. Omega then gets the mic, and he says until he heard the fans sing it this week, he didn’t even know the words, so thank you for that. And Jericho welcomes them all to the return of the Golden Jets! The fans chant that, and Jericho says that’s the first one of those. Omega asks if they were saying “Jeri-coat.” But the reason why it’s been awhile since they’ve both been here is because of “Big Bill” & Ricky Starks. The fans boo, and Jericho says those two attacked him after Full Gear, dislocated Jericho’s elbow (hence the big brace on it), put Jericho out for three weeks.

And last week on Collision, after Omega’s great match with Ethan Page, Big Bill kicks Omega in the face, puts him down on the ground. Jericho’s been spending three weeks thinking on what he’s gonna say to Bill & Starks, but it’s simple: Get your sorry asses out here! The fans fire up for that! And here comes Starks & Bill! Starks gets the mic says, “Wow. Did ya miss me?” The fans are torn, but Sarks says point proven. But Starks finds this all funny. Starks has no problem with Omega. Starks has to thank Omega for creating AEW. But for Jericho, there’s nothing to thank, he just sucks the life outta everything.

That makes Starks question Omega, though. Does Omega really think he can trust a guy like Jericho? Look at the Inner Circle, the Jericho Appreciation Society, and all the things he’s done in the past. Bill wants Omega to look at everything Jericho has actually done to Omega. If Jericho attacked Omega randomly on the drop of a dime, no one here would be surprised. Just saying. Omega says, “So… You’re basing this off of my trust between myself and Chris Jericho? Do I trust Chris Jericho?” Omega says even Jericho knows Omega doesn’t trust him! But Bill, talking about track records, let’s just take, oh, uh, The Firm for example.

Everyone remember The Firm? Omega can’t. But that thing wasn’t Firm, it was flaccid. Looking less firm, looking more sawft. Fans chant “SAWFT! SAWFT! SAWFT!” But Omega says when it comes to beatdowns, Omega’s the king of taking them. He’s on the receiving end of one practically every two weeks. But hey, Bill & Starks can talk a big game, that’s fine. But Omega & Jericho earned their title shot. And guess what? December 30th, Worlds End, maybe the Winnipeg Golden Jets maybe take those titles off Starks & Bill to put them around their waists. What does everyone say to that? The fans like it!

Starks says that’s all great and well as Omega & Jericho are #1 contenders. So Starks will speak for him and Bill to say, “You’re on!” BUT! Before they even get there, let’s remind everyone of something. Jericho, hopefully you remember January 2023. Because back then, Starks beat Jericho on Dynamite! Bill says Starks did it twice, he also got Jericho at a PPV. Wow, Bill really does Starks. Then as far as Starks is concerned, he’s done half of the work. We know Jericho is in and out and what he’s all about. Starks & Bill are the best tag team there is because they ARE the AEW World Tag Team Champions, without a team name!

Jericho says that’s funny, Starks brags about no names. Jericho says let’s give them a name! Omega agrees, they can fix that. Let’s go with the Absolute A-Holes! No, they can do better than that. Jericho goes with Rick & Dick! C’mon, is this his first day on the job? It’s gotta be more than just a rhyme. Okay, okay, they can take one guy’s first name and the other guy’s last name, and it’ll be… BIG BILLY STARKS! Well, that fell flat. Jericho still gets the fans to chant it. Starks will excuse the names but he will not excuse the outfit. It looks like Jericho went to a Hot Topic and asked for the best stuff they’ve got!

Hey, Starks, Jericho may be a clout vampire, but if he was gonna stick his fangs into somebody, it’d be someone with a lot more clout than Starks. All Jericho sees is a better dressed, less charismatic ENZO AMORE! But Omega says hold on, give that guy credit. At least that guy would hype Bill, not take all the spotlight. Starks says they’ve taken the spotlight too much. But you make up as many jokes as you want, from how Starks dresses to Bill’s past, whoop-dee freakin’ doo! No one cares anymore! Starks doesn’t, Bill doesn’t, everyone in the back! Starks is sick of Jericho, starting to get pissed at Omega, so if they want the war, they’ll bring it! WORLDS END!

Starks & Bill are the best damn tag team period, bar none, and if you think you got something better, prove it, you Winnipeg scumbags! Omega says well now that they’re bringing the big guns, much like those tag belts, Omega will bid the fans adieu, and Starks & Bill, he bids you adieu. Goodbye, mwah! And goodnight, BANG BANG! See you on December 30th! The match is made, who takes these titles into the New Year?

 

“Timeless” Toni Storm is here!

Fans cheer as the AEW Women’s World Champion joins commentary, Mariah May carrying the title for her. Is Toni scouting a possible costar for Worlds End?

Ruby Soho VS Riho!

Eight months ago, The Outcasts beat down and humiliated the original AEW Women’s World Champion. The Outcasts have certainly fallen apart since, but Riho won’t be denied her revenge! Will she bring down The Runaway to then go right for the leading lady?

The bell rings, fans are fired up for Riho, and Riho revels in it as she circles with Ruby. They tie up, Ruby throws Riho by her hair then bumps her off buckles. Ruby stomps a mudhole, lets off as the ref counts, but Riho gets up to throw a forearm. Ruby ROCKS Riho in return, then CHOKES her on the ropes! The ref counts and Ruby lets off while fans boo. Ruby drags Riho up, scoops and SLAMS, then covers. TWO and Riho goes Matrix! Riho dropkicks Ruby to a corner and fans fire up! Riho runs in, and JUMP KNEES! Then snap suplex, with a bridge! TWO! Riho brings Ruby up again but Ruby powers out.

Ruby swings, misses, and Riho shoves. Riho then follows, gets around, wheelbarrow and victory roll, STOMP 182! Ruby bails out and fans fire up again! Riho goes up a corner, but Ruby ROCKS her first!

Fans fire up again and Riho smiles at Storm, who is frowning at her while Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Riho is clearly calling Storm out, which confuses and upsets Storm. Riho goes back for Ruby, drags her to a cover, TWO! Riho stomps Ruby down, stalks her to ropes, and then runs side to side to 61- NO, Ruby avoids the call to STO! Riho flounders, Ruby rains down fists! The ref reprimands about closed fists but Ruby CHOKES Riho! The ref counts, Ruby lets off, and Ruby kicks Riho around. Ruby drags Riho up to snap suplex! Cover, TWO! But then Ruby clamps on a BULLY CHOKE! Storm doesn’t seem too impressed, and Riho fights up. Riho powers out but Ruby CLOBBERS her! Cover, TWO!

Ruby is annoyed, but she HEADBUTTS Riho while she’s down! And again! Fans rally, Ruby drags Riho up, and Riho fires forearms! Riho runs, tilt-o-whirls, but Ruby slips through that to cording hold! Ruby brings Riho around, makes the hold a top wristlock, but Riho fights up again. Storm sneers as Ruby cranks the hold, and Dynamite returns to single picture. Riho throws body shots, then ducks ‘n’ dodges to tilt-o-whirl and RANA! Ruby ends up on ropes, Riho redials, 619! Down goes Ruby and fans fire up! Riho hurries up top, Ruby stands, CROSSBODY! Cover, TWO! Ruby is still in this and Storm seems a bit surprised.

Ruby SUPERKICKS Riho down, then drags her up! SAIDO! Cover, TWO!! Riho survives and fans fire up. Storm says she’s ready for her close-up, Mr. Khan. The camera cuts to her and zooms in as she goes from duck face to licking her lips and a few other odd expressions. She also admires herself wearing the little headset. Ruby drags Riho up, Riho fires forearms, but Ruby ROCKS her! Ruby runs, but Riho follows to ROCK her!

Riho runs but Ruby follows to ROCK her! But Riho gets around, CRUCIFIX DRIVER! Cover, TWO!! Ruby survives but Riho drags her to a drop zone!

Bridging cover, TWO! Ruby escapes but ends up in the SNAP DRAGON!

Fans fire up as Riho aims and runs in, METEORA!! Cover, RIHO WINS!

Winner: Riho, by pinfall

Storm sarcastically applauds the first champion’s first win back. But will she have to share the spotlight at Worlds End?

 

Wardlow speaks.

“Since my return, I have been preparing for war. Physically, mentally, and spiritually. It’s no surprise I have left a path of pure mayhem behind me. Destroying every single person in my way. Just like the Archangel, Michael, I will be the one to bring The Devil to his knees! MJF, your world is coming to an end.” Mr. Mayhem has issued his warning, when and where will he make good on it?

 

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

El Toro Blanco is still in the running, if only for now. He stands at 1-2, desperate to win again. But with nothing left to lose, will Black Machismo serve not just an L but a spoiler?

Dynamite returns and Lethal makes his entrance. The bell rings and the two circle. Fans rally behind Rush but Lethal dodges to CHOP and CHOP! Lethal headlocks, Rush throws body shots and powers out.

Rush wins!!

Winner: Rush, by submission (gains 3 points; Lethal earns 0)

Rush sends a message to Jon Moxley by using one of his moves to finish this! Rush has evened out at 2-2 with 6 points. Is there still a chance this ungovernable one makes it to the semifinals? As for Lethal, Team Triple J appears to console him, even though he’s 0-4. Lethal is frustrated, can he at least finish strong in the fifth?

 

Collision’s Continental Classic matches have been set!

After losing to the Mad King, and being upset by El Idolo beating Bryan Danielson, Claudio Castagnoli gets his fight with Andrade! Will the Swiss Superman rebound by bringing The Idol down?

And bigger yet, Bryan must recover as best he can from last Saturday to take on the undefeated Brody King! Will the House of Black’s behemoth slay the American Dragon?

AEW Continental Classic, Gold League: Jon Moxley VS Swerve Strickland!

The Maniac has been daring anyone and everyone to step up and take him out, if they can. The Realest says he can and will, because he will be THE leader of the tournament and of All Elite Wrestling. Will Arlington becoming whose house? Or can nothing stop Moxley at this point?

The bell rings and the fans are losing their minds already. Swerve grins as he waits on Moxley to put the hoodie aside. The fans duel, but then it just turns back into raucous cheering as the two circle. The two feel it out, fans love “A E DUB!” for making this main event, and Swerve knuckle locks to wrench then get a leg for a drop toehold. Swerve facelocks, Moxley fights up but Swerve drags Moxley down to have a top mount. Moxley turns it around, pushes for a press but Swerve keeps his arms up.

Swerve powers Moxley to a corner, Moxley turns it around, and the ref counts. The two let off, Moxley gives Swerve a little kiss on the nose and then backs up.

The two circle, tie up again, and Moxley wrenches to a hammerlock. Swerve reaches back to headlock, but Moxley powers up and out. Swerve stops himself, sweeps around and O’Conner Roll but only to Eddy Gordo RANA! Moxley tumbles out of the ring, paces around, and Swerve eggs him on. The fans are still rowdy but Moxley keeps his cool.

Moxley fires up and run sin, and he ROCKS Swerve! Swerve ROCKS Moxley! They go forearm for forearm, then Moxley CHOPS! And CHOPS! And CHOPS! Moxley fires forearms and CHOPS on repeat in the corner, then whips corner to corner. Swerve reverses, but Moxley BOOTS him down! Then Moxley goes up, only for Swerve to kick the legs out!

The ref counts, Moxley lets off and he reels Swerve in, PILEDRIVER! Cover, TWO!! Swerve survives, but Moxley shouts out Bryan, only for Swerve to scramble.

Swerve flounders away but Moxley stalks him. Moxley sits Swerve up, traps that bad arm in a chicken wing, but Swerve endures. Swerve moves around, Moxley hammerlocks the arm and grinds a knee into it. Swerve still endures, so Moxley pulls the other arm, and SNAPS the fingers!

Swerve writhes and Moxley mocks the pain. Moxley then wraps Swerve’s bad arm around the ropes! The ref counts, Moxley lets off, and he wrenches to WRING Swerve out!

Moxley grabs Swerve’s arm, arm-drags, but Swerve comes back to HOUSE CALL! Swerve goes up the corner as Moxley sits up, but Moxley SHOVES him to the floor!!

Winner: Jon Moxley, by pinfall (gains 3 points; Swerve earns 0)

Swerve is fuming! He knows Moxley just bent the rules, but Moxley reminds us: Whatever it takes! Will that dirty dozen points be what secures Moxley a spot in the semifinals? Will Swerve have to fight even harder to get the other?

 

Hangman is under attack!

It’s the Devil’s Minions! They’re all going after Hangman but he’s holding his own, using his own luggage as a weapon! But this is still 4v1, and they RAM him into a dumpster! Then the bring him to a car, and THE DEVIL HIMSELF is there. The Devil nods, and the thugs DOUBLE POWERBOMB Hangman on the windshield!! This attack was brutal, and it does prove that Hangman is NOT behind that mask! But then who IS the mastermind behind all of these assaults?


My Thoughts:

A great Dynamite: Winter is Coming, but they really could’ve done a lot better with that Golden Jets promo segment. The tag title match was of course being set up for Worlds End, but couldn’t they have figured out something better for this? Starks’ line about the insults falling flat was more shoot than kayfabe, because how is it Jericho couldn’t do better than a weird reference to Billie Starkz when only a small portion of the AEW audience pays attention to ROH? Which, by the way, is totally Tony Khan’s fault, since he brought most of the ROH titles to AEW programming so there was no point. As cliche as it’d be, I would’ve made this Starks & Bill dressing up and making fun of the Golden Jets, Golden Jets show up and they fight, angry declaration of war for Worlds End.

Really good match from Ruby and Riho, and Toni Storm was entertaining as always. Riho with the win of course heads for Storm for a title match at Worlds End, so I’m sure Storm will have a new “film” (promo) to respond. Great opening promo from Joe that also brought in Hangman, Roddy & The Kingdom. Naturally, Joe would think Hangman is Devil because Devil wanted Joe to think that. Great opening match from Hangman VS Roddy with Hangman winning, and then what a great closing moment with The Devil proving he’s not Hangman. I can see a Six Man of Roddy & Kingdom VS Hangman, Joe & MJF as part of the argument of who is Devil, only for Devil to show up, proving to even Roddy that Devil is not MJF.

Good promo from Wardlow, but we’re all just waiting for when Wardlow attacks MJF at Worlds End, right? Good to hear the AAA Mega Championship is on Final Battle, because well, some major titles should be. Again, blame Tony Khan. And fun little segment for the Von Erichs, but way shorter than I thought we’d get. But hey, if they’re on Rampage with Cassidy, that’ll be a great match for Ross & Marshall, and maybe that will be where Kevin gets to address the Texas crowd.

And of course, just awesome stuff with the Continental Classic. I like that we got the bonus Blue League match here, not Rampage, because it let Andrade VS Brody breathe. That match was awesome, Andrade winning is awesome, this has to be a two-for-one: Andrade is building up momentum towards his inevitable feud with Miro; AEW wants to keep Andrade hooked so he doesn’t go back to WWE and his wife, Charlotte Flair. And then Gold League just dominating the second hour is perfect, to me, because it is all the action and drama of the tournament match after match, building to the crescendo of that main event. Should’ve figured both Lethal and Briscoe would lose to stay at the bottom, giving Rush and White one more win each.

And then White having a win puts some pressure on the main event, which was bordering on PPV worthy. Swerve losing was a bit of a surprise, but Moxley did technically cheat, similar to how Swerve beat White earlier on. Swerve has the tiebreaker win over White, so White will be even more desperate to win next round, the final round, and really hoping that Swerve loses because that is the only way White moves on to week six, the semifinals. Lethal VS Briscoe can go either way since it doesn’t affect anything, but then White VS Moxley and Swerve VS Rush are going to be red hot, perfect for the Christmas episode next week.

My Score: 8.9/10

Backstage interview with The Acclaimed.

Lexy Nair is with Max Caster, Anthony Bowens & Billy Gunn. First off, congrats on the recent success of the newest video. Thank you, Lexy. And Bowens is facing Brian Cage in tonight’s main event, how- Daddy Ass has us stop there. Let’s talk about everyone going crazy, running wild. The Embassy turning on Swerve, The Elite abusing their authority. Billy isn’t sure if Lexy has watched older wrestling, but Billy has a thing about authority. So if they wanna get wild, if they wanna go nuts, that is right up their aisle!

Caster says that’s right! He also thanks Lexi for saying those nice things about his song. But that song was about him and Bowens going back to the Tag Division. If you read the lyrics, which are great lyrics, but none of those team decided to wrestle The Acclaimed. Perhaps they’re a little too afraid to wrestle the best team alive. So they took the first match they could find, and that turned out to be Bowens VS Brian Cage 1v1. Sure, Brian is The Machine, but there are a lot of machines that are now antiquated, and we know Brian doesn’t have AI in his brain. In fact, he can’t update his software! It’s about time Bowens takes Brian to the junkyard!

Bowens says that’s right! Platinum Max & Daddy Ass said it themselves, there is a lot of chaos and madness going on in AEW! Bowens tells Brian and his cronies that they decided to side with The Elite, well you’re looking at the foundation of AEW! The best tag team alive, the best homegrown stars, The Acclaimed! That train is gonna roll right through Brian tonight, courtesy of the Scissor King! Because EVERYONE loves The Acclaimed! Say it again, EVERYONE loves The Acclaimed!! The Five Tool Player is fired up, but will he need all those tools to dismantle The Machine?

 

Rush VS Cody Chhun!

El Toro Blanco is back again, and this time he is looking to reach the top of AEW. Will he stampede through everyone put in his path until he is adored with AEW gold?

The bell rings, the fans rally up with “FOUR C! FOUR C!” Chhun runs up but Rush dodges! Chhun hits buckles, then Rush CLOBBERS him! Chhun sits in the corner checking his jaw, but Rush goes to the far side. “If you mess with the bull…” You get BULL’S HORNS!! Rush drags Chhun to a cover, Rush wins!

Winner: Rush, by pinfall

Rush stands tall, but he doesn’t even care to celebrate, because this was more an inevitability than a victory to him. But then he sees Chhun stirring, and Rush drags him out of the ring! Rush CHOPS Chhun right down! Then he whips Chhun hard into barriers! The ref reprimands but Rush THROWS Chhun around again! Rush fires down fists, the fans boo as Rush DECKS Chhun! Rush won’t stop, he finds his favorite bright green cord! Rush LASHES Chhun, even as more refs rush out here! Rush CHOKES Chhun with the cord!! The refs all shout for him to stop, and Rush does. But he wants everyone to remember: Nothing happens unless HE says so!!

Rush storms off, spits on Chhun, and then grabs a chair! The refs warn him, so Rush simply stands on the chair to soak up the heat. Will nothing and no one stop Rush from rampaging his way to the top?

 

Lexy Nair is outside the trainer’s room.

She notes that to close Collision, Lance Archer & The Righteous viciously attacked FTR after the match. Bryan Danielson walks out, Lexy asks for a medical update. Well, The Elite put a bounty on Team AEW’s heads, and it seems to have worked. FTR won’t make it to Dynamite next Wednesday. But the Elite also failed, because here’s the thing. The Elite wants to change the world? They don’t even show up on Saturdays! And the failure is that Bryan is still here! So this Wednesday, Bryan will be on Dynamite. The Elite can take whatever shot they want, but they better get it done the first time. Otherwise, they won’t like the consequences.

Bryan heads out, but are The EVPs going to make sure no one makes it to Double or Nothing to oppose them?

 

Deonna Purrazzo VS Robyn Renegade!

The Virtuosa is still seething over her many run-ins with Thunder Rosa, but it seems their rematch isn’t destined to happen just yet. Will Deonna one-up La Mera Mera by beating Robyn worse than Rosa did?

The bell rings, the two circle, and they knuckle lock. Deonna spins to wrangle Robyn, but Robyn rolls back. Robyn wrenches, wristlocks, but Deonna rolls, rolls and gets free. The fans cheer, Deonna smirks, but Robyn runs up. Robyn waistlocks, Deonna switches, but Robyn switches back. Deonna pries free to switch again, then she trips Robyn up. Deonna runs, Robyn stays low, then Robyn hits a rolling fireman’s carry takeover! Robyn runs up but Deonna ducks the kick to roll her up! TWO, and Robyn staggers up into an arm-drag! Deonna has the armlock, the fans cheer, but Robyn endures.

Robyn fights up, Deonna hits another takeover, and she traps the arm. Deonna makes it a cover, ONE as Robyn gets the shoulder up. Deonna knuckle locks, wrenches, then clamps onto the arm. Robyn fights up to whip free, then runs to sunset flip! Deonna stays up, then slaps the arms away to clamp on an ARMBAR! Robyn fights around, flails, and has the ROPEBREAK! The ref counts, Deonna lets go at 4, and Rampage goes picture in picture.

Deonna stalks Robyn, brings her around and whips, but Robyn holds ropes. Deonna ROCKS Robyn, Robyn still holds ropes! Deonna ROCKS Robyn again, whips, but Robyn reverses. Robyn ducks the forearm, and the backhand, then clinches for a HALF NELNSON FACEBUSTER! Robyn fires up, she sits Deonna up, and runs to SHOTGUN her down! Cover, TWO! Robyn is frustrated, but she drags Deonna back up and bumps her off buckles. Robyn CHOPS Deonna, smirks, and winds up to CHOP again! Robyn says one more time, then puts some stank on it. But Deonna dodges to CHOP back! Deonna whips corner to corner, but Robyn reverses.

Robyn runs in, but Deonna puts her on the apron! Robyn ROCKS Deonna first, steps in, but Deonna ARM CODE BREAKERS! Robyn writhes, Deonna storms over, and Deonna drags Robyn up. Deonna knuckle locks, wrenches, then top wristlocks to wrangle Robyn. Deonna traps the arm for a SNAP LOCK! Cover, TWO! Robyn clutches the arm but Deonna is on her again. Deonna pulls on the bad arm, then top wristlocks. Robyn endures as Deonna thrashes the arm, and Rampage goes to break.

Rampage returns and Deonna wrenches Robyn’s arm. Robyn ROCKS Deonna, but Deonna wrenches again. Robyn fires off a flurry of forearms and the fans fire up! Deonna shoves Robyn but Robyn LARIATS on return! The fans fire up with Robyn, then she wrenches Deonna to reel her in, put her in ropes, and KNEE her! Robyn runs to then STOMP Deonna down! Cover, TWO!! Deonna survives and Robyn is frustrated. The fans rally, Robyn drags Deonna up, then fireman’s carries. Deonna slips free, shoves, and BOOTS Robyn down! Deonna slashes her throat and vows to end this! The fans fire up as Deonna drags Robyn up.

Deonna Gotch hooks, but Robyn slips free! Robyn pump handles, but Deonna arm-drags free! Deonna BOOTS the lariat, ARMBAR DDT! FUJIWARA!! Robyn taps, Deonna wins!

Winner: Deonna Purrazzo, by submission

Deonna didn’t even need Venus De Milo, but then she puts that on Robyn anyway!! The ref reprimands, the fans boo, but Deonna makes Robyn suffer in Rosa’s place! But wait, here comes Thunder Rosa!! La Mera Mera rushes the ring, but Deonna runs away! So when does the part about regretting to mess with a Jersey girl come in? Rosa checks Robyn, and Deonna slithers back in! Deonna CLOBBERS Rosa from behind! Oh so that’s the part about Jersey? Rosa gets up, though, and Deonna retreats again. Rosa runs Deonna down and grabs her by the hair! Rosa drags Deonna back to the ring to RAM her into the apron!

The fans fire up as Rosa tells Deonna to fight her now! Rosa puts Deonna in, Deonna rolls out of the ring and runs into the crowd! The fans boo as Deonna flees into the night. When and where will Deonna have to give Rosa this fight?

 

Scorpio Sky speaks.

“I have done things people dream about. I’ve made money, faced legends, won championship after championship after championship. And you might not wanna hear this, but that was easy. And that doesn’t mean I don’t relate. I understand a normal person put in my position would fail. Because since time began, when people wanted to see a star, they’d look up at the Sky. And all that does is put me in the perfect place to reach down and lift you all up here with me. So to all the fans around the world, I’m coming back. And I’m here for you.” But will this comeback finally be the time Scorpio Sky reaches the top of the mountain?

 

Backstage interview with Sonjay Dutt.

Lexy Nair says Sonjay asked for this time, what is on his mind? Sonjay says first off, he sure doesn’t need Lexy here so hit the bricks. Skedaddle, peace, see ya. Lexy sighs and leaves, and Sonjay says this is for Bryan Danielson. The Elite have put a price out on Bryan’s head, and Sonjay just got off the phone with them, they have worked out quite the deal. Bryan says he’ll be on Dynamite, and so is Sonjay. But no, Sonjay isn’t the one that’ll take him out once and for all. This Wednesday, it will be The American Dragon VS… The Indian Giant! Yeah, that’s right! The one in a billion, Satnam Singh!

And y’know what? Dragon meat is expensive, so hopefully he goes well with a little chicken masala. This Wednesday, it will be one hell of a cookout! Sonjay laughs to himself, but will Bryan be the one with the last laugh after taking on this giant roadblock?

 

PROGRAMMING NOTE for Rampage next week!

Yes, Rampage returns to Friday nights next week, BUT at a special time of 6:30 Eastern, 3:30 Pacific! Make sure your DVRs know so you don’t miss this special Double or Nothing weekend edition!

 

Brian Cage VS Anthony Bowens w/ The Acclaimed!

The Machine turned on Swerve and then got beat by Swerve, crossing him off the list of top contenders. But will he reboot and head for other title opportunities? Or will The Acclaimed prove they can get it done in any division?

As always, Platinum Max has a diss track! “I heard Brian Cage got captain plans. We leave you bleeding so hard, you got menstrual cramps! Damn you are ugly, lookin’ pathetic. You are so small, get off the Ozempic! When did Brian Cage stop lifting weights? Beat him so bad, whip his ass into shape! Run you outta town just like Daim, because in Portland, Everybody Loves The Acclaimed!” Bowens then says, “PORTLAAAAND~! The Acclaimed have arrived! Scissor me, Daddy Ass~!” And he does~! The fans are fired up, but will Cage get his stuff in in response?

The bell rings and the fans sing “OH~ Scissor Me, Daddy~!” Cage and Bowens circle, tie up, and Cage shoves Bowens away! Cage flexes, fans are torn, and Cage says to scissor that.

Cage suplexes, but Bowens cradle counters! TWO!! Cage escapes but Bowens ducks the discus! Bowens hobbles but he still ROCKS Cage, throws more hands, but Cage SOBATS! KICKS!

Cage runs up, Bowens sends him at the ref! Bowens waistlocks but Cage LOW BLOWS!! The fans boo but Cage reels Bowens in! DRILL CLAW!!! Cover, Cage wins!!

Winner: Brian Cage, by pinfall

Bowens may be an excellent former Tag & Trios Champion, but sadly he isn’t at the level needed as a singles guy. Will The Acclaimed have to regroup and focus on going after The Elite? Will The Machine be granted golden opportunities by said Elite?


My Thoughts:

A very good Rampage to once again follow up Collision, but I’m relieved that next week is going to be a partial return to normal schedule. Because as great as the matches here were, they just felt thrown together to tangentially tell stories. For example, Kyle VS Lee was a great match but Kyle has beef with The House of Black but they didn’t want Kyle getting one over on Buddy or Brody before facing Malakai next Wednesday. Shane Taylor Promotions deserves a touch better than being fed to the bigger stories, but maybe they come around as a trio after Double or Nothing to face like Bang Bang Gang or something.

And even our main event was an example of this. Great promo from Acclaimed, great rap from Caster as usual, but also a good choice for Cage to still win out. Cage has done singles champ stuff, is going to be the singles champ guy in whatever the former Mogul Embassy becomes after this, or even just a singles guy all on his own. Rush of course squashes his opponent tonight but him going after Chhun after was a good touch. At the same time, I kinda wanted the ref to reverse the decision and disqualify Rush after the match, throwing him into a worse rage and beating up on Chhun more. And again, why no La Faccion Ingobernable? Donde esta Dralistico, Preston Vance y Jose?

Good match from Deonna VS Robyn but of course Deonna won. Rosa going after Deonna and Deonna running away was not what I was expecting, it’s rather disappointing, and why not just give us their rematch with escalated stipulations already? Deonna VS Rosa in a Last Woman Standing maybe? Iron Woman Match so that it goes right to half an hour? Something cool like that would really show Tony Khan finally wants to do more with the Women’s Division after promising it like two or three times already.

And very good promos from Bryan and Sonjay Dutt to set up Bryan VS Satnam. I would think Bryan wins, but there’s a good chance Team Triple J goes after him post match anyway. As I just said in the Collision article, Anarchy in the Arena being No Disqualifications of the highest level, we could actually get way more than just the eight men advertised as the roster starts choosing sides, a very Avengers Civil War/Endgame type situation.

My Score: 8.6/10

Will Ospreay VS Shane Taylor w/ Anthony Ogogo!

The Aerial Assassin gave Roderick Strong one last warning on Dynamite, but this is about paying back that knockout shot last week! Will “OSPREAY! OSPREAY!” be cashing receipts tonight? Or will it be Rumble, Bad Man, Rumble?

But before things get going, here comes The Undisputed Kingdom. Roddy, Taven & Bennett walk on out, clearly not leaving things at the face to face on Wednesday.

The #BillyGOAT gets away clean, will he be able to take The Kingdom down and bring the International Championship home to The Don Callis Family?

 

Blackpool Combat Club speaks.

Jon Moxley says, “At Double or Nothing in Las Vegas, Konosuke Takeshita-san will try to score himself a shot at the IWGP (World Heavyweight) Championship. He’s been a hell of a blue chipper for quite some time. Now, he’s got a new attitude, some new representation. And he came after me. Me. Trying to put a big ol’ notch in that gun belt. Hey, I get it. I’ve done far worse. What’s my secret? What’s the secret of the BCC? When you stand where I stand in this sport, you get used to being a target. How do we survive? Guys like you, The Callis Family, you’re in it for the gold, you’re in it for the green and chasing fame and fortune, adulation, Instagram, all that.

“BCC, we don’t give a rat’s ass about any of that. We do this because this is who we are. This is our nature. We don’t hunt because we are hungry, we hunt because we are lions. We like it. We never, ever play for money. We play for blood.” Claudio Castagnoli adds that a lot of times, he’s the voice of reason here. Even when no one listens, it’s fine. Things just keep repeating and repeating and he doesn’t like standing here to talk to the camera, because it is the most awful thing to do. What matters is going out there and showing it week after week! And y’know how many people stand back here and tell you how good they are? How great they are?

They have passion! They practice their lines in the mirror! Then they come here, tell you how really, really good they are, and how it’s just been their dream all their lives. And it’s all fake! So fake because they don’t live it one day of their lives. It’s like The Emperor’s New Clothes. Only the BCC can see it. They see through the fake, through the facade. They see through it because while others try to make a name off BCC, that’s a big mistake. You are dealing with the real deal right here! Moxley likes it. Takeshita, you started this game. At Double or Nothing, the BCC finishes it. Will The Maniac tear down The Alpha and send a message to the rest?

 

BREAKING NEWS for AEW’s “Path to All In!”

AEW hears from Chris Jericho & “Big Bill” Morrissey.

It was backstage after Dynamite that The Learning Tree, after getting patched up, told Hook, “Wow, I can tell that I touched a nerve there when you hit me with that microphone and made me bleed my own blood.” But Hook, Jericho isn’t mad. It tells him that Hook is learning what it takes to be a champion again. Hook was the “For The World” Champion, and will be again some day, but it’ll take some time. Hook is still learning. Jericho is glad Hook is in the #JerichoVortex and hit him hard enough to make him bleed. It really hurts, but y’know what? It also makes Jericho proud. Makes him proud to see Hook get a little more serious! This is serious business!

This is what The Learning Tree is here for! To make Hook a better person and a better wrestler, both inside the ring and out. Jericho will need stitches, and will gladly get them. Because it is proof that Hook is learning what The Learning Tree is teaching. So in a roundabout way, thank you, Hook. And good luck in the qualifiers. Wow, that really hurts. Really got him with that mic. Hook is “learning,” but will he be the one teaching Jericho a thing or two?

 

FTW Contender Series: Hook VS Johnny TV w/ Taya Valkyrie!

The Learning Tree is giving opportunities to those who are worthy, but it will still come down to who is the most deserving. Will the Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil prove he’s the only one deserving? Or will Johnny #SendHook to the back of the line?

The bell rings and the fans rally for Hook. The two circle, Johnny tests the waters with kicks. The two tie up, Hook headlocks, and Hook wrenches to a hammerlock then headlock. Hook hits a SAYANAGI, and Johnny staggers to his feet. The fans rally as the two circle again. They tie up, Johnny ROCKS Hook! Hook wrenches back to SAYANAGI again! Hook clamps on for a wristlock, but Johnny fights up. The fans duel, Johnny fights up and trips Hook up. Johnny runs to SHINING WIZARD! Cover, TWO! Hook is tougher than that but Johnny rains down forearms and elbows! The fans duel more as Johnny keeps throwing down shots!

Hook wants an arm but Johnny slips around to cravat. Johnny cranks the neck, Hook endures and fights up. The fans rally and duel, Hook pries at the hold to then power Johnny into a SAIDO! Hook runs up to LARIAT! Johnny staggers back up, Hook clinches and throws knees! Hook TOSSES Johnny across the ring! Johnny gets up in a huff, kicks, but Hook catches him! LEG CAPTURE SUPLEX! The fans fire up with Hook and he storms around. Hook brings Johnny up but Johnny JAWBREAKERS! Johnny ROCKS Hook, Hook ROCKS Johnny! Hook fires more shots, but Johnny kicks low! Hook dodges the lariat, but almost runs into Taya!

The ref reprimands Taya for being on the apron, but Hook turns around into a FLYING CHUCK! Johnny goes to the corner, climbs up, STARSHIP PAIN FLOPS as Hook moves! Hook is mad now, and he clamps on for REDRUM!! Johnny fights but Hook has the hooks in! Johnny TAPS, Hook wins!

Winner: Hook, by submission (advances to the Triple Threat)

The Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil is now moving on to Dynamite’s Triple Threat #1 Contender’s match! Will he make Jericho regret not just giving him the match?

As Hook heads out, Shibata makes his entrance! The Wrestler is also in this series, and he gives Hook a fist bump as they cross paths. Will Shibata join Hook in that Triple Threat? Or will Azucar make things sweet?

FTW Contender Series: Kastuyori Shibata VS Rocky Romero!

The bell rings, the two shake hands, and the fans cheer. Shibata and Rocky circle, the fans rally up, and the two feel things out. They knuckle lock, Shibata gets around to waistlock, but Rocky switches. Shibata switches, Rocky goes for a leg, but Shibata waistlocks again. Rocky wrenches out to a wristlock but Shibata spins and wrenches back. Rocky rolls but Shibata wrangles him! Shibata double wristlocks, but Rocky powers Shibata to ropes. Shibata still holds onto the wristlock as Rocky tries to whip. The fans rally, Rocky throws knees and powers out this time. Shibata stops himself to stomp Rocky on the back!

Shibata gets a leg, steps through, and has the FIGURE FOUR! The fans “WOO~!” as Rocky endures. Shibata puts on pressure, but Rocky crawls for ropes! ROPEBREAK, and Shibata lets go quickly. Shibata stomps Rocky, CLUBS him, then CLUBS him again. Shibata runs, but Rocky catches him into an IRON OCTOPUS! The fans cheer while Shibata endures! Shibata fights up, pops free and throws Rocky down! And it’s back to the FIGURE FOUR! Rocky endures again while fans “WOO~!” Shibata puts on the pressure, Rocky pries at the main leg, but Shibata pulls on Rocky’s legs. They roll, roll, and end up in the ROPEBREAK!

The ref counts, the leglock is undone, and Shibata brings Rocky up to bump him off buckles. Shibata fires forearms, UPPERCUTS, then UPPERCUTS again. Shibata goes corner to corner, but into a BOOT! Rocky kicks again, Shibata bocks, so Rocky reel shim in for an UPPERCUT! Rocky goes up and jumps, TORNADO DDT! Both men are down and the fans fire up while Collision goes picture in picture.

Rocky stands and he stomps Shibata. Shibata sits up, Rocky KICKS him in the back. Rocky wrenches an arm, YANKS it, then wrenches for an ELBOW BREAKER! Rocky KICKS Shibata in the bad arm, then brings Shibata around. Rocky turns Shibata over, traps the right arm and he pulls on the bad one, SACRIFICE! Shibata writhes and clutches the elbow.

Rocky CHOPS, Shibata drops to his knees, but Rocky wrenches again. ELBOW BREAKER! Rocky KICKS the bad arm again! And again!

Collision returns, Rocky KICKS Shibata in the arm! Shibata eggs Rocky on and the fans rally up. Rocky KICKS again, but Shibata stands! Rocky KICKS, and KICKS, but Shibata just steps into them! Shibata DECKS Rocky and the fans fire up! Rocky is dazed but Shibata brings him up. Shibata CHOPS and the fans “WOO~!” Shibata CHOPS again, and CHOPS again! And CHOPS and UPPERCUTS and runs, but Rocky dumps him out! Shibata stays on the apron, and gets a SLEEPER! The ref counts, Rocky wrenches free to HOTSHOT the arm! Rocky reels Shibata in through ropes, to KICK, KICK and he goes up! MISSILE DROPKICK!

The fans fire up, Rocky drags Shibata to a cover, TWO! Rocky frowns but stays focused as he brings Shibata up. Rocky cravats, Shibata pushes out of Sliced Bread! Rocky’s leg jams, Shibata CLOBBERS him! Shibata comes back, leg scissor takedown into the HEEL HOOK!! Rocky flails, reaches out, but Shibata keeps him back! Rocky crawls his way over, reaches out, ROPEBREAK! The fans are torn as Shibata lets Rocky go. Shibata stomps Rocky, drags him up, and fires off forearms. Shibata UPPERCUTS, then stomps Rocky down.

Rocky endures, flails, but he’s at center! Rocky TAPS, Shibata wins!

Winner: Katsuyori Shibata, by submission (advances to the Triple Threat)

And with that, we’re two thirds of the way to that contender’s match! Shibata shows Rocky respect, Rocky shows it back, and Rocky tells Shibata to go win that title. Will The Wrestler get past the Triple Threat to get another shot at Jericho?

Well, just like Shibata did with Hook, Bryan Keith makes his way out while Shibata’s leaving. The Bounty Hunter gives The Wrestler a tip of the hat, will this be the final piece to the puzzle? Or will things get literally much bigger for Dynamite?

As the Iron Savages make their entrance, Jacked Jameson tells “all you fat morons, skinny idiots, and Low T Losers to shut up.” The fans boo instead, but Jameson says he rode the Max Rail Line from the airport to the hotel downtown, and all along the tracks, it is filled with trash! Now that they’re here in the Moto Center, it’s funny, because it’s also filled with trash! The fans boo being insulted, but Jameson says he can’t wait to leave this dump. But this is the Sauce Hoss, Beefcake Boulder! He’s sippin’ sauce, livin’ hoss, and taking everybody to #TIDDYCITY! And then he just attacks Keith!!

FTW Contender Series: Bryan Keith VS Beefcake Boulder w/ The Iron Savages!

The bell rings and Boulder fires big elbows and clotheslines into Keith in a corner! Bulky Bronson and Jacked Jameson cheer him on, but Keith slips free of the scoop! Keith KICKS and KICKS and KICKS, then runs, but into a BOOT! Boulder drags Keith up, scoops him again, and flexes as he carries Keith around. POWERSLAM! Cover, TWO! Keith is tougher than that but Boulder tells Jameson to pass him that Savage Sauce! Jameson gets on the apron but the ref tells him to hop down. This is all a distraction so Bronson can get involved! Boulder brings down the straps but Keith sends Bronson into Tiddy City!

Bronson falls, Keith BITES them tibbies! The fans fire up, Keith runs, but Boulder ELBOWS him down! Boulder goes up, but Keith RISING HEADBUTTS! Boulder wobbles, Keith goes up and reels him in, for DIAMOND DUST!! Cover, Keith wins!!

Winner: Bryan Keith, by pinfall (advances to the Triple Threat)

Now that was a BIG win for Bryan Keith! The Triple Threat is set, will The Bounty Hunter be just one step away from having his prize?

 

Backstage interview with Pac.

Lexy Nair has found The Bastard somewhere in the bowels of the arena, and says that last week, The Bang Bang Gang had a message for him. Does Pac care to respond? Pac says he couldn’t care less! But obviously, he saw their little message. Credit where credit is due, those guys are very funny chaps. Hilarious, even. And typically, they’re naughty behavior would really ruffle his bastard feathers. But not today. He couldn’t care less. Pac hasn’t felt a thing in weeks! And you expect him to care about those idiots?! In fact, let this be an open invitation! Make him feel something! Make him feel anything, boys! He’s begging you, daring you! Make him care. Try harder.

And as for Lexy, just leave him alone. She nods and leaves. The Bastard is in no mood, but will that all change the next time Bullet Club Gold takes aim at him?

 

Bullet Club Gold is here!

AEW returns from break, and wait! They’ve attacked Pac! They drag him out here on stage! Jay White kneels beside Pac, gets a mic, and makes Pac sit up. “I bet you care now, don’t you? Bastard.” The Switchblade & The Gunns leave Pac down and out, and White says he told Pac to stay out of their business. Is Pac going to heed the Bang Bang Gang’s warning? Or is he only going to escalate things from here?

 

The Patriarchy speaks.

Christian Cage tells Nick Wayne, “You have a match right here tonight on Collision. And it’s jut a precursor to this coming Wednesday on Dynamite, because you are gonna be facing… Swerve Strickland. I know you’re ready for it. Yo have our support.” Nick thanks Christian, and says he’s been meaning to talk with him. A year ago, when Swerve jumped him in the garage, Nick was just a boy. A kid. But ever since teaming with Christian, he has changed. Nick is now a man! And tonight, this is just a warm-up. Nick knows he can beat Swerve on his own. Nick heads out, Christian & Mother Shayna beam with pride. Will Swerve’s House soon end up in Wayne’s World?

 

Orange Cassidy VS Isiah Kassidy!

Freshly Squeezed is certainly feeling out of sorts after Trent Beretta made things all about #JustTrent. But likewise, Private Party might have to get serious as sadly, Marq Quen is again on the shelf. Cassidy or Kassidy, who wins to get themselves back on the right track?

The bell rings and the fans rally for Cassidy as he and Kassidy circle. Zay runs up, Cassidy trips him but Zay kicks him away. Things speed up, Zay hurdles, Cassidy leaps over, then they keep moving. Cassidy arm-drags, Zay needs a moment, and the fans fire up. Zay runs up, Cassidy dodges, but now Zay arm-drags! Cassidy hobbles up, blocks a hip toss, then he wrenches to a backslide! TWO, and Cassidy reels Zay in! Zay rolls Cassidy, TWO! Cassidy sweeps to cover, ONE! Zay sweeps to cover, ONE! They keep going back and forth, then Zay goes Matrix! But Cassidy powers him down, ties the legs up, BOW ‘N’ ARROW!

The fans fire up while Zay endures, and Zay pops free to cover! TWO, Cassidy avoids a boot, then shows punch! Zay stumbles back, the fans fire up! Zay bails out and wants a timeout. Cassidy does give him time on the outside, and Zay paces around. The ring count climbs, Zay hurries up but Cassidy BLASTS him off the apron! Cassidy builds speed and DIVES! Direct hit and Zay avoids the desk! Don Callis is watching backstage and approves. Cassidy goes out after Zay to ROCK him with a right, then Cassidy refreshes the count. Cassidy ROCKS Zay again, refreshes the count again, taking a pause to lounge on the apron.

Cassidy DECKS Zay this time, then he puts his hands up. The fans cheer as Cassidy puts his hands in his pockets! Cassidy runs up at Zay, to SHOTGUN him into the barriers! The fans fire up as Cassidy kips up. Cassidy stalks Zay, drags him up, and whips him into more barriers! But wait, Trent is walking down the bleachers!

But was the save a little too late with FTR suffering the worst of it? Are The Elite going to make sure there’s no one to even be on Team AEW?


My Thoughts:

A very good episode of Collision here, and of course more is set up for Double or Nothing. Very good promo from Moxley and Claudio, and Moxley VS Takeshita is made, but it will just be an IWGP World Heavyweight Championship  Eliminator, not a straight up title match. Maybe that means Takeshita wins so that he earns a title match for Forbidden Door, and then he loses there. Though, if that’s the case, Moxley must be getting past Evil at NJPW Dominion just a few weeks before Forbidden Door. Moxley’s great in the ring and all but I’m starting to agree with Shota Umino in his interview, where he said NJPW should not be some feeder to AEW.

Interesting for AEW to have Collision stationed in one spot for a six week stretch like that. Is this to make up for bad ratings/attendance for Collision? I mean, if they keep Collision interesting during that time, sure. Having something like tonight’s FTW Contender Series could help. I figured Hook would make it in, and same for Shibata. It seems the new attitude for The Iron Savages won’t count towards anything on AEW programming, Keith took Boulder out pretty easy. Hook VS Shibata VS Keith is going to be great stuff, and seeing as Jericho’s promo naturally called out Hook, there’s a good chance Hook wins. Though it’d be a great twist in the story if it wasn’t Hook or even Shibata but Keith getting his shot so that he can have another PPV title match under his belt.

Great stuff out of Ospreay VS Taylor, and I figured Ospreay would win. Great little brawl of him fighting off The Kingdom, though I was kinda hoping at least Kyle Fletcher would show up to connect the dots on Don Callis Family backing each other up. Great match of Cassidy VS Kassidy, even with Trent showing up ringside as a partial distraction. Great win for Cassidy, and Cassidy VS Trent is now made for Double or Nothing. That could go either way depending on how this courting of Cassidy goes for Don Callis, which also probably relates to how things go for Ospreay in that International Championship match. I still don’t want Cassidy to go Heel and I still don’t see Callis making a Face run work.

Very good promo from Pac to call out Bang Bang Gang, and wow I didn’t think Bang Bang Gang would get him so soon. Still unclear if this becomes a trios thing even though the Unified AEW & ROH World Trios Champions do need to defend those titles at some point. But even just Pac VS White 1v1 would be awesome stuff, would love to see it. Good promo from The Patriarchy, and of course Nick Wayne wins, even though this has also been his first singles match in months. He sure isn’t beating Swerve but that probably ends up just a set-up so the Patriarchy can beat Swerve down, keeping the go-home math in Swerve’s favor.

Very good match from Deeb VS Anna, and what an out of the box move for Storm to take Deeb’s banner and make it a dress. Still hard to say what happens at Double or Nothing, but the fans are still just so in love with Storm, it doesn’t feel like she’s losing the title. And great Six Man Tag main event, great win for Bryan & FTR but I should’ve figured there’d be a beatdown. Garcia making the save is great, and honestly it’s a little surprising he wasn’t “the fourth man” over Darby. Garcia has teamed with FTR before, there’s history with Bryan when Garcia was torn between Bryan and Jericho, something about that makes even more sense than Darby just not liking The Bucks & Jack Perry.

But at the same time, Anarchy in the Arena being No Disqualifications, Garcia can still get involved to help. In fact, many AEW wrestlers could get involved to turn this into AEW’s Avengers Civil War/Endgame whatever. Which would be a great way to top off the PPV that makes five years of AEW, honestly.

My Score: 8.7/10
