Open Challenge: Adam “Edge” Copeland VS ???

The Rated R Superstar has Norfolk, Virginia all fired up as he heads to the ring. He gets his pyro and Metalingus, then steps inside, ready to continue on his journey of vengeance! Edge gets the mic to tell Norfolk, “I like it, I like it, you’re bringing the heat tonight. Your first time seeing me, it’s good to be here, man.” Fans cheer, and Edge says he’s in his gear. Now we know what this means, right? Time for the #CopeOpen! So then, he’s waiting. Who is gonna step up this week? Out comes #TAIGASTYLE, Lee Moriarty! Shane Taylor accompanies his protege, and he has a mic to say, “If you wanted a fight, homie, all you had to do was ask!”

Shane introduces “the baddest fight team on the planet,” Shane Taylor Promotions! They ain’t duckin’ nobody, they ain’t dodgin’ nobody, they ain’t singing for these chumps, ain’t dancing for these chumps, and damn sure ain’t letting anyone feel comfortable. But what they will do is take everything AEW has to offer, including their respect, that they will take at Edge’s expense! “And if you need more convincing, let me show you why they call him Taiga Style.” Shane cues up a highlight reel of Moriarty’s run through AEW and ROH, how he’s taken even big names like Bryan Danielson, Jon Moxley and Katsuyori Shibata to their limits.

Back in the present, Moriarty has the mic now, and he says, “Taiga Style Lee Moriarty is the prizefighter of Shane Taylor Promotions.” Fans are torn on that, but Moriarty says he is one of the best young technical wrestlers in the world! Fans are also torn on that, but Moriarty says he’ll prove it by making Edge tap out in the middle of Moriarty’s ring. Edge says okay, then. So what was it? Tiger? Taiga? Well, Shane Taylor Promotions is doing a whole lot of teeth chattering, but they better be careful. If they’re writing a check they can’t cash, Edge is gonna beat the hell out of Moriarty. The fans fire up, the mics are put away, and the bell rings!

Edge and Moriarty circle, they tie up, and Moriarty wrenches to wristlock. Edge reaches back, cording holds, and wrenches to wristlock. Lee rolls, slips through, knuckle locks, but Edge wrenches back. Lee steps through to hook a leg, but Edge wrenches again to then hammerlock, headlock and hit the takeover. The fans rally and actually duel, and Moriarty headscissors. Edge endures, fights around, and pops free to then get the headlock back. Moriarty fights up, powers Edge to a corner but Edge puts him in the corner to fire off forearms. Moriarty shoves, but Edge kicks low. Edge whips hard and Moriarty bounces off buckles!

Fans cheer, Edge KNEES Moriarty in the back, then drags Moriarty up. Edge fires forearms, whips corner to corner, but Moriarty reverses. Moriarty runs up but is put on the apron. Edge ROCKS Moriarty, then sweeps the legs! Edge drags Moriarty up, but Moriarty hooks ropes to resist! Shane even helps anchor Moriarty right under the ref’s nose! Edge lets go because of the ropebreak, and Moriarty HOTSHOTS the arm! Shane says fight smarter, not harder, and Moriarty storms in. Moriarty goes up the corner to MISSILE DROPKICK Edge down! Fans rally and duel while Collision goes picture in picture.

Edge goes to the apron on the other side, but Moriarty storms up and grabs that bad arm. Moriarty drags Edge up to wrench the arm and wrap it through the ropes. Moriarty steps outside to fire crossface forearms! The ref counts, Moriarty lets off at 4, and he shoves Edge to the floor. Moriarty steps back inside, Edge crawls around, and Shane is lurking. The ref is busy with Moriarty, and Shane DECKS Edge with a sucker punch! Fans boo and give thumbs down but Moriarty goes out to stomp Edge against railing! The ref counts, Moriarty lets off, and Moriarty drags Edge up to RAM him into the railing! Moriarty swaggers while Edge writhes.

Moriarty puts Edge back in the ring, storms up on him, and isolates the bad arm. Moriarty hammerlocks the arm to SNAP LOCK it! Moriarty then hooks the arm to SNAP LOCK it again! Edge throws body shots to get free, but Moriarty CHOKES him on the ropes! The ref counts, Moriarty lets off, and Moriarty clamps back on to bend the fingers. Edge endures as Moriarty has the mounted cording hold. Moriarty pulls and twists the arm, but the fans rally as Edge fights up. Collision returns to single picture as Edge throws body shots. Moriarty shoves him away, but Edge gets around to FULL NELSON SLAM!

Fans fire up while both men are down! Shane paces, Moriarty and Edge rise, and Edge storms up on Moriarty to BOOT him down! Edge whips, Moriarty reverses, but swings into a HALF NELSON FACEBUSTER! Edge shakes out the bad arm, storms up and kicks Moriarty, but Moriarty wrenches out of the facelock to hammerlock and PEPSI- NO, Edge ducks the lariat to hit the EDGE-O-MATIC! Or is it the Cope-asetic? Cover, TWO! Moriarty is still in this but Edge huffs and puffs. Edge goes to a corner, climbs up, but Moriarty rises up after him! SUPER ARM-DRAG! Edge writhes but Moriarty is also down, his own shoulder bothering him.

Moriarty crawls to the cover, TWO! But into the BORDER CITY STRETCH!! Edge endures, reaches out, claws at the grip, but Moriarty holds on tight! Edge powers his way forward with his legs, claws with his free arm, and gets the ROPEBREAK! Moriarty lets go in frustration but the fans fire up. Moriarty springboard stomps away on Edge! Fans boo as Moriarty snarls. Moriarty goes to a corner, he climbs up, but Edge rises! Edge trips Moriarty up! Moriarty lands hard on the crossbar, and Edge hurries up after Moriarty. Edge CLUBS away on Moriarty’s bad shoulder and fans count all the way to TEN!

Edge drags Moriarty up, scoops, and SUPER FALL AWAY SLAMS!! Fans fire up as Edge aims from the corner again. Moriarty rises, Shane shouts at Edge and that distracts him, Moriarty runs in to JUMP KICK! Edge falls, Moriarty goes to the apron. Moriarty watches Edge rise, and springboards, but Edge gets under! Edge bails out to then SPEAR Shane!! The fans fire up, but Moriarty DIVES to take Edge down! Moriarty puts Edge in and hurries back up! Springboard, but into an armlock! Moriarty rolls through to get the BORDER CITY STRETCH!! Edge endures, hooks a leg to roll through, and he’s free to fire forearms!

Moriarty guards but Edge turns him over for blindside forearms! The ref stops Edge to check Moriarty. Moriarty stirs, he’s still in this, so Edge runs up to BOOT him! And then dragon sleeper, for a BACKBREAKER! And then, THE DEAL!! Moriarty endures, but taps! Edge wins!

Winner: Adam “Edge” Copeland, by submission

The “Grindhouse” brings Moriarty down, that’s another big win for the Rated R Superstar! Edge gets the mic to say, “And just in case he forgot, Christian Cage… I’m still coming for your scrawny ass!” The “Cope Open” is 2-0 so far, will he fight all the way until he has one more match with Captain Charisma?

 

Backstage interview with FTR & Daniel Garcia.

Lexi Nair is with Cash Wheeler, Dax Harwood and Red Death, noting how they’re facing The House of Black together in tonight’s main event trios match. Malakai, Brody & Buddy are “three men which you all have deep personal issues with. The question here is, can you all handle being on the same page?” Cash says yeah, after last week, they’ll be getting along just fine. Because they won last week and that should’ve been the end of it, but it wasn’t because The House couldn’t leave until they left these three all laying. So tonight is about revenge, and they’ll get it back in blood.

Dax says he doesn’t know if they can coexist, get along, that might not be a thing. But what he does know is that they have similar mindsets, and they love this sport. Deep down in their bones, in their guts, they love this. But tonight ain’t about love. Tonight is about a fight. So tonight, FTR & Garcia might just have to dance all over the House of Black. Garcia says they might just, because Saturday night is alright for a fight, isn’t that the song? But Garcia agrees, Collision is where he really needs to be if he wants to grow, if he wants to be a main eventer, if he wants to restore the feeling. House of Black put their hands on him and the people Garcia loves for far too long. Tonight, they get what’s coming to them.

Dax adds, “Top Guys, out!” Will #FTRedDeath tear down the House of Black once and for all? Or will The House Always Win?

 

Backstage interview with Chris Jericho & Sammy Guevara.

Lexi is now with Le Sex Gods and brings up their huge tag match later on in Battle of the Belts. She notes that Sammy is the only man who has actually won a title on a Battle of the Belts, and he says that is right! Sammy promises history will repeat itself as tonight, he and Jericho become AEW World Tag Team Champions on Sammy’s show, BOTB. “Ricky Starks, Big Bill, you guys have been great champions. Really great champions. But all great things come to an end, and that happens tonight!”

Jericho adds that Bill & Starks, it is just as Sammy said, you two have been great champions. They’ve surpassed everyone’s expectations. But tonight, Jericho & Sammy take it to the streets of Norfolk, and they fulfill their destiny, a destiny that started the moment AEW started. The streets giveth and the streets taketh away, so tonight, Jericho & Sammy do just that! Starks, Bill, they will seek and destroy to walk out of here the NEW AEW World Tag Team Le Champions! Will Le Sex Gods end the Absolute?

 

ROH World Six Man Tag Team Championships: The Mogul Embassy w/ Prince Nana VS Lance Archer & The Righteous w/ Jake the Snake Roberts!

What was starting to be a fearsome four fell apart during Homecoming, and now Brian Cage, Toa Liona & Bishop Kaun must defend their gold against the Murderhawk Monster and his teammates, Vincent & Dutch. Will even The Machine & Gates of Agony learn #EverybodyDies? Or will the dominance continue even through this massive Collision?

The introductions are made, the belts are raised, and we see who’s really the scariest trio around!

Winners: The Mogul Embassy, by pinfall (still ROH World Six Man Tag Team Champions)

Nana has the mic to tell production to shut off the music! “Ladies and gentlemen, you’re looking at the GREATEST ROH Six Man Champions of ALL time!” Fans boo but Nana says that “boss” Swerve and Nana were in the hotel, watching those Bang Bang Gang guys complain about how they needed more titles. Specifically, the ROH Six Man titles! But y’know what? Bullet Club Gold has a leader who couldn’t even beat Swerve in the Continental Classic! We’re looking at the greatest and most popular faction in AEW!

And y’know what? Since they’re such great guys, live on Wednesday Night Dynamite, Mogul Embassy challenges “you bums,” The Bang Bang Gang! If White & The Gunns are ready, then step up to the plate. Is Nana crazy for giving Switchblade and his boys this opportunity? Or will the Embassy simply cross BCG off the list?

 

Backstage interview with Preston Vance.

Lexi Nair is with Perro Peligroso, as well as Jose the Assistant, and brings up Vance’s match against Orange Cassidy for the AEW International Championship tonight on Battle of the Belts. Last we saw, Vance got a huge win in the 8 Man Tag- “PRESTOOON~!” Roderick Strong shouts as he enters the room. Roddy tells Vance not to worry, he, Taven & Bennett just want to wish Vance luck. Hold on, this is Vance’s time, and this match has nothing to do with The Undisputed Kingdom. So why’re they even here?

Y’know what? How about this? Vance will go beat Cassidy’s ass and become the NEW International Champion, and then Roddy can have all the time with Vance he wants because Vance will beat Roddy’s ass, too. Roddy likes the fire. Will Vance bring gold to La Faccion Ingobernable before pitting himself against the Savior of the Backbreaker?

 

Dustin Rhodes VS Willie Mack!

The Natural was part of the big win in the 8 Man Tag, and he’s looking to get going again in AEW. But will Dustin find his way to a golden opportunity? Or will that be sidetracked by the Return of the Mack?

The bell rings, the two circle, and the fans rally up. Dustin and Mack shake hands to show sportsmanship and the fans cheer. The two circle again, tie up, and Mack headlocks. Dustin powers up and out, things speed up, and Dustin sidesteps but Mack turns hip toss into arm-drag! Both men stand, Dustin arm-drags back! Mack storms up to CHOP! Fans “WOO~!” but Dustin kicks low, to then RHODES UPPERCUT! Then roll-up, TWO! Mack escapes and goes to ropes. Fans cheer and Mack resets with Dustin. Dustin offers the handshake again, Mack takes it, but then Dustin headlocks. Mack puts Dustin in a corner, and he lets off slowly.

Mack then CHOPS again! “WOO~!” and Mack is feeling it. Mack stalks Dustin but Dustin headlocks. Mack powers up and out, sidesteps and GAMANGIRIS! Dustin falls, fans fire up, and Mack drags Dustin around to then Mack-a-rena, deep breath and STANDING MOONSAULT! Cover, TWO! Mack is annoyed but he brings Dustin up.

Fans rally up, Mack goes corner to corner and returns, but Dustin BOOTS him! Mack staggers, Dustin runs up, but into a scoop! Dustin slips free, dragon sleepers, CROSS RHODES!! But Dustin ain’t done, FINAL CUT!! Cover, Dustin wins!

Winner: Dustin Rhodes, by pinfall

Dustin ate everything the big Mack had to offer, and he might have another run in him! Will the Natural end up a natural choice for a title opportunity? Best of all, though, is he helps Mack up and shows him respect. Will Mack himself one day get after some gold?

 

Bullet Club Gold speaks.

Jay White & The Gunns mockingly applaud and say, “Wow!” Impressive victory, Mogul Embassy. The Gunns know those guys, right? Yeah, they do. Colten knows “BrIaN CaGe~” and flexes like him. Austin knows Nana, and then mocks Nana’s dance. White has them calm it down, and tells the Embassy that they’ve gotten so confident and comfortable without the Collision Cowboys keeping them in check. But now the Bang Bang Gang’s names are on their lips. So if they wanna go for a ride, then saddle up! Just know that you’ll be going home sad and lonely while BCG goes home with those ROH World Six Man titles!

Austin says if you’re not down with that, they’ve got two words for ya: GUNS UP! Nana just made his guys a target, will the Embassy learn to Breathe with the Switchblade?

 

Hook is backstage!

The Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil is in Norfolk just days ahead of his huge AEW World Championship match with Samoa Joe! But at the same time, Hangman Page is in action, and the Cowboy is gunning for whoever the winner will be. Is Hook looking to keep an eye on a potential challenger?

 

Backstage interview with Dustin Rhodes.

Renee is with The Natural, congratulates her one of her all time favorites on the big win, and asks how he feels. But Christian Cage interrupts as he walks in with The Patriarchy, Nick Wayne, “Mother” Shayna Wayne and Killswitch/Luchasaurus. Christian says it was a great victory to be sure, but he couldn’t help but notice that on Dynamite, the company Dustin was keeping. Christian wants to take this moment to let Dustin know, and pass this around the locker room if he wants, that if you’re a friend of Adam Copeland, you’re an enemy of Christian’s.

Dustin says first off, Christian needs to take that bass out of his mouth when he talks to Dustin. Dustin is a 35 YEAR veteran, The Natural, you got that? See that title? Since AEW has been in existence, Dustin has been chasing that title! He wants it really really badly, understand? So if Christian has the balls, he’ll put that up on Dynamite, and Dustin can show just how big and bad he is. Well, that sounds like a beautiful dream Dustin has concocted. And it’d be a bigger dream if Dustin’s dad was still alive to see it come true. Dustin steps to Christian but Luchasaurus steps up to reinforce Christian.

Christian says everyone knows Dustin’s dad is a legend in this business. No one’s ever used that word to describe Dustin, though. Oh, yeah? Well, it’s coming. A storm is coming for Christian now, and he better get his balls ready. Talk is cheap, and Dustin’s gonna tap dance all over that ass! Understand?! Dustin storms off, but Christian grins. Will The Natural tear down The Patriarchy with his own two hands? Or will Captain Charisma find another way to survive a fight with a living legend?

 

Hangman Page VS JD Drake w/ Anthony Henry!

Daily’s Place was homecoming for AEW, but tonight is a homecoming for The Cowboy! And he is itching for a fight as he aims for the AEW World Championship, will he get that out of #ScrapMetal? Or will this be one Workhorse that the Cowboy can’t wrangle?

The bell rings and the fans fire up for Hangman. Hangman and JD circle, tie up, and go around. JD powers Hangman to ropes but Hangman turns things around.

Deonna Purrazzo VS Red Velvet!

Speaking of championships, The Virtuosa wants after “Timeless” Toni Storm and the AEW Women’s World Championship, but is going to build up her AEW résumé to earn her shot. Will she start right here with a Collision? Or will The Chef kick her out of the kitchen before she even starts to cook?

The bell rings and the fans rally as the two circle. They tie up, Deonna shoves Velvet away, and the two reset.

Winner: Deonna Purrazzo, by submission

The Venus Armbar gets the Virtuosa the win, but will her greatest masterpiece be when she shares the spotlight with AEW’s leading lady?

 

Hook VS Kevin Matthews!

Turns out the Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil wasn’t just here to watch Hangman fight, he was here to have a fight of his own! Will the FTW Champion be more than ready for his title match with Samoa Joe? Or will #2CockyKM catch Hook sleeping on him?

The bell rings, KM rushes in but Hook dodges! KM hits the FTW belt that was hanging on the buckle! Hook then GERMAN SUPLEXES KM, and runs up to wrench and NORTHERN LIGHTS!

We heard from them earlier tonight, and now Garcia, Dax & Cash look to put those words to action! Will they make Malakai, Brody & Buddy #FearTheRedDeath? Or will they and Collision have no choice but to #FadeToBlack?

Daddy Magic, Matthew Menard, is on commentary as he has been for Garcia all through the Continental Classic. Menard admits things did go badly right after Garcia beat Brody, but he also wants us to know that as a younger man, Garcia went to a house show with his mom to see FTR in person, and that inspired Garcia to be a wrestler.

A brawl breaks out in the parking lot!

It’s Sammy & Jericho fighting with Starks & Bill!! Neither side is waiting for Battle of the Belts to officially start! They’ll be brawling all through the commercial break, who comes away with the AEW World Tag Team Championships?


My Thoughts:

A great Collision, and I figured Edge’s Open Challenge would start the show. Great showing for Moriarty, and this is definitely a good trend already that up-and-coming Heels are getting this opportunities. At the same time, of course Edge wins. But we also got a good promo from Christian Cage with Dustin Rhodes. Dustin got what was almost a filler match win, but turns out it was to set this promo up that then sets up Christian VS Dustin for the TNT title this Wednesday. Pretty sure Christian retains with help from The Patriarchy, but maybe Dustin becomes an ally of sorts to Edge when it comes time for Edge VS Christian, part 3.

Great ROH World Six Man title match, but I suppose I should’ve known Embassy wasn’t losing. Archer & The Righteous looked really good even in the loss at least. Nana calling out Bullet Club Gold gave us a good Bullet Club Gold promo, and now we’re going to get a great ROH World Six Man title match for Dynamite. No idea if BCG wins, but maybe if they lose, that’ll convince them to join up with Acclaimed to form Bang Bang Scissor Gang. And good promos to hype up Battle of the Belts. I don’t see any titles changing hands, because it’s Battle of the Belts, after Collision, on a night full of other sports doing important stuff.

Really good match from Hangman VS JD with Hangman winning, of course. Same for Hook having an “impromptu” match, he of course wins to have momentum going into his loss against Samoa Joe. And really good match from Deonna with Velvet. Really good win for Deonna but the fans sure liked Velvet better. Good promo from FTR & Garcia to hype up the main event, which was an awesome Six Man Tag. That seems to be AEW’s strong suit for Rampage and Collision right now. House of Black winning was only mildly surprising but good move for the Faces to stand tall. We might get a No Disqualification rematch after this, and we’ll see where things go from there.

My Score: 8.8/10

AEW Collision bleeds over a bit.

Bryan Danielson is still down on the ramp after Konosuke Takeshita’s Brainbuster and the medics check him. The battle with Will Ospreay at Dynasty is still in the books, but what condition will Bryan be in?

 

Backstage interview with Hook and Katsuyori Shibata.

Lexi Nari is with the FTW Champion and The Wrestler, and notes we saw Hook make the save for Shibata during Collision against Shane Taylor Promotions. At the same time, Hook is about to face Shane Taylor himself with the FTW title on the line. Knowing what Shane’s capable of, what is Hook’s strategy going into that match? Shibata uses his voice-to-text translator say, “Pardon the interruption… Hook, I’ll have your back tonight.” Hook appreciates that, but even knowing what Shane’s capable of, Hook’s got his own way of handling this. Shibata says bet, and Hook gives him the fist bump.

FTW Championship: Hook VS Shane Taylor w/ Anthony Ogogo!

The Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil knows he’s up against a bad, bad man, but this is FTW Rules! Everyone who fights for this title is a bad, bad man, so will Hook prove he’s the baddest? Or will Shane #SendHook back to New York without his gold?

Backstage interview with Rocky Romero.

Lexi is with Azucar as he is just moments away from his Title Eliminator match for the International Championship. However, Lexi wants to know if he knows what’s going on with Best Friends. Rocky says Chuck, Trent and Orange Cassidy are like brothers to him, and yet he has no idea what’s going on there. But right now, he can’t really worry about that, he has to focus on the match with Roderick Strong. When Rocky wins, he’ll be one step closer to fulfilling his destiny of becoming International Champion. Kyle O’Reilly pops in, wishes Rocky luck, and then heads back out. Will Azucar be able to get one over on the Savior of the Backbreaker? Or will he just end up broken?

 

AEW International Championship Eliminator: Roderick Strong w/ The Undisputed Kingdom VS Rocky Romero!

While Azucar is confident, it was just last night on Rampage that Roddy took offense to him and Kyle O’Reilly even thinking there was a chance this match doesn’t go The Undisputed Kingdom’s way. Will Roddy prove them all wrong by crossing Rocky off the list? Or is this were The Kingdom starts to crumble?

The bell rings and the two circle. The fans are behind Rocky as he and Roddy tie up. Rocky waistlocks, Roddy wrenches to wristlock, but Rocky rolls, wrenches and wristlocks back.

Kyle helps Rocky up to his feet, and wants the fans to give it up for Rocky. But then Wardlow LARIATS Rocky, and The Kingdom stomps away! Kyle has them stop, this isn’t cool! But then Roddy STRONG KNEES Kyle down?!? The fans boo as Roddy tells Kyle that he could do it on his own, but there’s only ONE man that can be International Champion! Kyle made the wrong decision! Roddy’s arrogance just ended his friendship with Kyle, will Kyle make Roddy pay for that?

 

Backstage interview with Serena Deeb.

Lexi Nair is with the Professor of Professional Wrestling and notes how last week, Serena walked on stage after Yuka Sakazaki’s return victory. Why? Serena says she was sitting in the back, watching that impressive match, and thought to herself that she was watching a great pro-wrestler. Someone that Serena would love to tear it up with. Tonight, the Professor is here on BOTB, but has no championship opportunity. She’s not sweating it, though. Since her return, Serena is undefeated. She checked the rankings, and The Professor is sitting pretty at Number 3! So week by week, she’s climbing her way up to inevitably become champion.

Serena tells Yuka, that was an invitation. To where? Into the Deeb Dojo! Serena will show Yuka that Serena is better, and that she is what she says she is: The Professor of Pro-Wrestling! Serena wants to test herself against the Wrestling Magical Girl, but who will be the one taking a step closer to a title opportunity?

 

BREAKING NEWS for Dynasty!

After Roddy’s sudden rejection of Kyle O’Reilly, they are now going to battle over the International Championship! It’s the fight neither man wanted, but will Kyle give Roddy payback for what he did with interest?

 

ROH Women’s World Championship: Athena w/ Billie Starkz VS Red Velvet!

The Fallen Goddess is 49-0 after defeating Hikaru Shida on Supercard of Honor last week, and when she says she’s the Forever Champion, she means that. But will “forever” come to a crashing halt in Kentucky? Or will The Chef be the one getting served an L?

The introductions are made by Lexi Nair, so just a little biased in Athena’s favor. The belt is raised, and here in the main event, we see who is the face of the ROH Women’s Division!

The Code of Honor is upheld, the bell rings and the fans fire up for Athena already. The two circle, tie up, and they go around. They go into a corner, along ropes, then Athena throws Velvet down. Velvet holds on, they roll on the mat with the collar ‘n’ elbow, then they stand up. Athena puts Velvet in a corner, the ref counts, but Athena lets off with a cocky smile. Velvet keeps cool and resets with Athena. They tie up. Velvet wrenches an arm to wristlock, but Athena handsprings and wrenches back. Velvet rolls, kips up, and wrenches back. Velvet headlocks but Athena powers up and out. Velvet runs Athena over, but Athena kips up!

The fans fire up while both women brush themselves off. They reset again, tie up, and Athena headlocks. Velvet powers up and out, but Athena wrenches to whip. Velvet ducks ‘n’ dodges and tilt-o-whirls to RANA, but Athena handsprings through! The fans fire up and Athena cheers herself on. But Velvet DROPKICSK Athena down! Athena gets up, Velvet arm-drags, arm-drags again, and then Velvet cheers herself on. Athena runs up into another arm-drag! Velvet has the armlock but Athena fights up and throws Velvet down by her hair! The fans cheer but the ref reprimands, and things speed up.

Velvet drops, runs up and CALF KICKS Athena down! Athena bails out, Billie there to check on her. Velvet goes to the apron, Athena grabs a leg but Velvet kicks her away. Velvet then ASAI MOONSAULTS land takes Athena down! The fans fire up, Velvet drags Athena up and puts her in the ring, then has her on the apron. Velvet climbs up, brings Athena up, but Athena shoves her back. FLAPJACK off the top buckles! Velvet staggers, Athena reels her back in, APRON BACK SUPLEX! The fans fire up with Athena while BOTB goes picture in picture.

Velvet crawls into the ring but Athena follows her. Athena looms over Velvet, drags her up, then CLUBS her down. Athena stands Velvet up to whip her hard into a corner. Athena revels in the cheers before she runs in and back body blocks! Then Athena goes side to side to forearm SMASH! Athena smiles as Velvet leans against buckles. Athena shoves Velvet down, stomps her around, then drags her back up. Velvet fires body shots, but Athena bumps her off buckles. Velvet avoids the forearm to DOUBLE CHOP! Velvet fires body blows but Athena throws hands! Velvet CHOPS, Athena CHOPS, they CHOP, then Athena CHOPS Velvet off her feet!

The fans cheer while Athena snarls. Athena sits Velvet back up, KICKS her in the back, then KICKS her again! And again! Athena stands Velvet up, bumps her off buckles, then scoops to put Velvet in the Tree of Woe. Athena KICKS away on Velvet’s back, then lets her fall out of the Three. Billie applauds, tells Velvet she should’ve known better, but Velvet swipes at Billie. Billie gets away, cheers Athena on, but Velvet fires hands on Athena! Athena swings back but Velvet bobs ‘n’ weaves! Velvet ROCKS Athena, kicks her legs out, then runs up , into a SPINEBUSTER! Cover, TWO! Athena is annoyed but still in control as BOTB goes to break.

BOTB returns once again as Athena hits buckles! Velvet rallies on Athena with clothesline after clothesline! Velvet runs, tilt-o-whirls and RANAS Athena onto ropes! Velvet runs up to DOUBLE KNEE! Velvet shoves Athena down, runs, and tilt-o-whirls again, REVERSE DDT! Cover, TWO! Athena survives and Velvet is frustrated. Athena crawls away, wanting mercy! But Velvet storms up, only for Athena to YANK Velvet into buckles! Athena then fireman’s carries Velvet for the WASTELAND! Roll through and another fireman’s carry, for another WASTELAND! Another roll through, and then Athena mocks the stirrin’ it up motion!

But Velvet pops up to RANA! Cover, TWO!! Athena escapes, Velvet runs up to wheelbarrow, but Athena URENAGES her down! Cover, TWO!! Athena is furious as Velvet survives! Athena goes up a corner, the fans cheer, and Velvet rises. But Velvet ROUNDHOUSES first! Velvet ROCKS Athena, climbs up after her, then CHOPS! Velvet goes to the very top, to SUPER VICTORY THROW! Athena flounders but she ducks the buzzsaw! Roll up, Velvet rolls through! THE SLICE! And then the tilt-o-whirl DDT!! Cover, TWO!!! Athena survives and Velvet is fuming! Velvet pushes Athena around while the fans rally up.

Athena is in the drop zone, so Velvet goes up top. Velvet tells Billie to shut up, but Athena gets out to the apron. The fans boo but Velvet adjusts position, to leap and SUPER CROSSBODY! Athena catches her!? And then brings Velvet around to FALCON ARROW to the floor! The fans fire up as Athena roars, but so does Velvet as she rises! Only for the SUPERKICK to knock her down! Athena has a wild look on her face and Billie cheers on the Overlord. Athena gets Velvet up, THROWS her into the LED board, then THROWS her around again! Athena drags Velvet up and into the ring, storms in after her, and reels her in! Canadian Rack, but Velvet sunset flips it! TWO!!!

Athena escapes, Velvet runs up, ducks ‘n’ dodges then SUPERKICKS! But Athena DECKS Velvet with a forearm! Athena goes up top, Velvet rises in a daze, to get the O-FACE!! Cover, Athena wins!

Winner: Athena, by pinfall (still ROH Women’s World Champion)

And that’s FIFTY and zero! Fifty wins, no losses, and no slowing down as she title belt clinks with Billie. But as is customary on ROH, Athena sets her belt down, and Billie does, too. They drag Velvet up, mock “stir it up,” but Velvet SLAPS Athena! And SLAPS Billie! But then Athena and Billie mug Velvet! The fans boo as Billie picks up her belt, takes aim, but then QUEEN AMINATA is here! Aminata runs down into the ring, dodges Billie to DECK Athena, then HEADBUTT for Billie! That’s payback for cheating in the TV title match! But then Athena runs up, into an Alabama Lift! AIR RAID CRASH!!

Aminata saves Velvet while also making her own impact, will The Queen not be denied her crown? Or will the Fallen Goddess look to make her pay for this insolence?


My Thoughts:

A really good BOTB but uh, after ten of these, we already know nothing really happens on these. Great action and promos like on Collision, but no titles were ever changing hands. And after two hours of Collision, the crowd was of course tired out. Hook of course defeated Shane but it was a really good showing of Hook’s resilience to take all that damage and still win. Really good match from Roddy and Rocky that Roddy of course won, and turns out I was right in thinking they’d fast track Roddy VS Kyle here. That match will be great stuff, but it’d be a shame if Kyle’s first title shot ends up a loss, even with The Kingdom all there to interfere and distract.

Good promo from Serena to make it clear that she’s having a match with Yuka, just in case it wasn’t clear last week. And then a great main event for the ROH Women’s Championship. Red Velvet looked great even in defeat, and natural move for Aminata to show up and go after Athena & Billie. Aminata really has her pick of the two titles at this point, and while payback on Billie for Supercard is an obvious route, why wouldn’t she go right to the source and take down Athena? Athena’s made it to 50-0, and if not when Athena faced Billie, not when she faced Nyla Rose nor when she faced Shida, her first loss should be to pass the torch to Aminata.

Aminata went through the grind, paid her dues, and has got organically over with ROH viewers, so if she isn’t gonna be the historic first Women’s TV Champ, make her the woman that takes down the top woman in ROH.

My Score: 8.6/10

Mitchell’s AEW Collision Results & Report! (4/13/24)

The Don Callis Family is out for blood!

Published

on

Will the Blackpool Combat Club survive this Collision?

Before the Dynasty dream match of Ospreay VS Danielson, the Don Callis Family wants to not just beat the American Dragon, but to destroy him!

OFFICIAL RESULTS

  • Six Man Tag: The House of Black VS Dante Martin, Action Andretti & Matt Sydal; The House of Black wins.
  • Katsuyori Shibata VS Lee Moriarty; Shibata wins.
  • Daniel Garcia VS Angelico w/ Serpentico; Garcia wins.

  • Bryan Danielson & Claudio Castagnoli VS Will Hobbs & Kyle Fletcher; Bryan & Claudio win.

PLAY BY PLAY

The Blackpool Combat Club speaks.

Bryan Danielson says BIG week for BCC. Jon Moxley is the NEW IWGP World Heavyweight Champion, a huge accomplishment. And on Wednesday, Claudio Castagnoli takes on Will Ospreay, then Bryan faces Ospreay at Dynasty. But there’s tonight first. Claudio says Don Callis gave Kyle Fletcher & Will Hobbs this motivational speech that they don’t even need to beat BCC, they just have to hurt BCC. How weird. But it’s easier to beat them than to hurt them, and what kind of faith does that show Callis has in Ospreay? Not much, it seems. Not sure what Callis is thinking. But Claudio has faith that all three of those guys could beat BCC.

But hurt them? People have been trying to hurt Claudio and Bryan for 20 years. Because they see the spotlight, they see how successful BCC is, and they see BCC all over the world. Bryan couldn’t be stopped by a broken orbital bone nor a broken arm. And Claudio’s been fighting week after week after week, consistently like Swiss clockwork for over 15 YEARS. Because it’s not about the work and the talk here in front of the camera, but the work behind cameras, the stuff you don’t see, that goes into making this look so easy at the level they are at. Bryan agrees there, and tells Don Callis that he wants his guys to hurt them, to hurt Bryan and to hurt Claudio.

Guess what?! That’s not gonna fly tonight! Because Bryan goes out there every single night to hurt people! That’s what BCC does! Violence is their specialty! DCF will not only see that tonight, but on Wednesday and in St. Louis. The American Dragon is all fired up, but will he and the Swiss Superman burn down the Powerhouse and the Protostar?

 

Six Man Tag: The House of Black VS Dante Martin, Action Andretti & Matt Sydal!

Malakai Black, Brody King & Buddy Matthews are preparing for the coming war with Adam Copeland, Mark Briscoe & Eddie Kingston, but they’re taking on three men who are much different from Copeland, Briscoe & Kingston.

Backstage interview with Toni Storm, Mariah May & Luther.

Lexi Nair is with the AEW Women’s World Champion, as well as her protege and her butler, and says we saw a lot on Dynamite. Kissing, champagne, and- “Yes, we did see a lot, didn’t we, darling? Get used to it. Because we saw a Champion’s Champagne Celebration that made an Italian woman curse, and turned Lightning Daffodil into a diddling do-how! And as for the kissing… There has been no greater love than this.” Storm turns to Mariah, but Lexi interrupts by saying she meant the kiss Mariah had with Mina- Mariah cuts Lexi off there. Can’t Lexi see Toni has a lot on her plate right now?

Toni has a title defense on a PPV coming soon, AND a match against AZM tonight. Plus, Anna Jay’s all serious~ right now. Yes, yes, Azumi-san. You want her to kiss your bottom? Well, that makes you and a thousand other perverts! Toni will give AZM a beating so intense, it’ll be featured in a fetish periodical! And the name of that publication? Chin up, tits out, and watch for the shoe…! The leading lady leads the way out, will she send AZM crying back to Stardom?

 

AEW shares footage from after Dynamite.

Chris Jericho found Taz backstage to talk with him about the Six Man Tag. We all saw what happened, and Jericho just wants to explain himself to Hook. Jericho is just trying to do what’s right for Hook but Hook won’t listen. Hook won’t answer his phone or his texts, but Taz knows his son better than anyone. Can Taz please ask Hook if he’ll talk to Jericho? Taz says he’ll try, a lot of the time he doesn’t really hear from Hook, Hook’s his own man. Of course, of course. Taz says Jericho may have pissed Hook off. And when Hook gets pissed, it’s… Well, Taz will try.

Jericho appreciates that, and as it turns out, this coming Wednesday, Taz will broker a face to face! Will #LionHook still make it work? Or will this Jericho only #SendHook into a stronger rage?

 

Katsuyori Shibata VS Lee Moriarty w/ Shane Taylor Promotions!

The Wrestler got caught by #TAIGASTYLE all because Lionheart Jericho couldn’t get out of his own way. Will Shibata be able to handle things much better on his own? Or will Moriarty sink his fangs into Shibata one more time?

The bell rings and the fans rally up.

Lee digs his boots in at the ropes, scrapes Shibata out of the ring, then soaks up the heat.

Lee goes out after Shibata, RAMS him into railing, then taunts everyone while Collision goes to break.

Collision returns and Shibata gets back in the ring after having wrecked Lee on the outside. But then Lee wrenches Shibata. Shibata ROCKS Lee, Lee wrenches, repeat! Lee CHOPS Shibata, but Shibata doesn’t budge! Lee CHOPS again, but Shibata eggs him on! Lee CHOPS, CHOPS and CHOPS, but Shibata is leaning into the shots! Shibata backs Lee down even though Lee CHOPS again and again! Shibata eggs Lee on, Ogogo coaches Lee, and the CHOPS keep going. Shibata ROCKS Lee with a forearm!

Moriarty put up a fight, but it wasn’t enough to win. So Shane Taylor attacks from behind! The fans boo as Shane stomps Shibata at the ropes then talks trash! But here comes HOOK! The Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil won’t let Shane beat up his friend like that! Lee runs up but Hook catches him for an EL CAMINO! Shane stares Hook down, their FTW Championship match set for later tonight on Battle of the Belts. But given that, Shane stands down and STP regroups. They’ll look to handle this later, but it be rumble, bad man, rumble?

 

Backstage interview with Athena & Billie Starkz.

Lexi Nair is in her Minion In Training Letterman’s jacket as this is an Emergency Minion Empowerment Meeting! She is with the ROH Women’s World Champion AND ROH Women’s Television Champion, and Athena defends her title against Red Velvet in the main event of Battle of the Belts! The main event, ON TNT, LIVE! Athena deserves this because she is that damn good! Billie agrees, but says Red is really good. She made it really far in the Women’s TV Title tournament. Yes, but Billie won that, right? She did! So Athena knows Red Velvet is a top star, Red Velvet is a threat, but Athena is the TOP champion! The BEST champion in wrestling today!

Athena is the Minion Overlord, the Fallen Goddess, the REAL Alpha, the Forever Champion, and tonight, Athena makes an example out of Velvet to show the world what they’ve been missing. Will Athena be the one serving L’s to The Chef tonight?

 

Backstage interview with The Undisputed Kingdom.

Collision returns as Lexi is now with Roderick Strong, Mike Bennett & Matt Taven and says as of late, they’ve had a lot of success. Would they attribute any of that success to Wardlow? “LEXIII~! How dare you. How dare you give credit to anybody but me.” Roddy is a fighting champion, a giving champion. Do you not see the opportunity Roddy is giving to these gentlemen who do not even deserve it? He is making them earn it because they do not deserve it. How dare she? But hey, Roddy has been doing it on his own, just like Kyle O’Reilly. Kyle inspires Roddy.

But enough about that, let’s talk tonight. Tonight, Roddy puts on a show. What’s the show called? The Beating of a Lifetime! That’s the Kingdom’s favorite show! But will Rocky Romero cancel that show to make it The Azucar Hour?

 

Daniel Garcia VS Angelico w/ Serpentico!

The Dragonslayer has been getting back up with win after win, and he doesn’t plan on stopping now! Will he turn it up a notch as we get closer and closer to Dynasty? Or will the South African Stud prove he’s still worthy of some opportunities, too?

The bell rings, the fans rally and the two circle. They feel things out, tie up, and Angelico wrenches to a hammerlock. Angelico spins Garcia, wristlocks, but Garcia pries the hold open to wrench back. Angelico spins, slips through, spins Garcia, then slips around again to arm-drag! Garcia gets up fast but Angelico does his own dance. The fans boo but Garcia keeps cool. The two tie up, Garcia waistlocks, spins, snapmares, ghost pin, TWO! Angelico is up but Garcia clinches to to arm-drag! Leg-sweep, cover, ONE! Angelico puts a leg guard up as he calls for a timeout! The fans cheer as Garcia shows sportsmanship and lets Angelico get up.

Angelico and Garcia reset, knuckle lock, then Angelico trips Garcia. Angelico rolls Garcia, whips, but Garcia reverses. Angelico rolls off Garcia’s back, Garcia jumps the leg sweep, but not the EDDY GORDO KICK! Angelico wrenches, steps over, LA MAGISTROL! TWO, but Angelico stomps Garcia around. Angelico drags Garcia by an arm but Garcia kicks him. Angelico stomps Garcia, but Garcia CHOPS! Angelico JABS Garcia, digs his boots in, but lets off as the ref counts. Angelico drags Garcia up, hits a BIG back suplex, then grabs legs. Angelico steps over, but Garcia kicks him away to trip him! Garcia steps through to FIGURE FOUR!

The fans fire up as Angelico endures! Angelico’s shoulders are down, ONE as he sits back up. Garcia puts on the pressure but Angelico turns things over! Garcia endures now, but he fights it back over! Angelico endures again, stays off the mat, and turns things over again! Garcia turns it back! Then Angelico, then Garcia! Angelico has it! Garcia has it! Angelico has it again, Garcia has it back, ROPEBREAK! The fans cheer as the two kick at each other while the hold is undone. They both stand, Garcia kicks but Angelico kicks back. Garcia kicks, Angelico kicks, repeat! Garcia kicks more and more, runs, but the leg bothers him!

Angelico DECKS Garcia! Angelico hauls Garcia up to suplex, but Garcia slips free and kicks! Then TWIST ‘N’ SHOUT! The fans fire up while both men are down! Garcia beats his leg into working, the fans rally behind him, and he stands. Garcia counter punches Angelico, then does it again! Garcia then wrenches and BUTTERFLY SUPLEXES! The fans fire up as Garcia runs in at the corner to forearm SMASH! Garcia climbs up, rains down fists, and goes to nine before he puts up his dukes, to DO HIS DANCE! The fans fire up as Garcia hops down and runs corner to corner, HAYMAKER! Garcia runs up again, choke grip!

Angelico breaks free, Garcia CHOPS and SAIDOS! Garcia storms around, gets the legs, KNEEBAR!! Angelico flails, reaches out, but TAPS, Garcia wins!

Winner: Daniel Garcia, by submission

A great fight leads to a great win for Red Death! Will this momentum help Garcia be primed for a title match on the other side of Dynasty?

 

Pac speaks.

“Kazuchika Okada. Believe it or not, bonny lad, I would like to thank you. Not only for accepting my challenge, but also for walloping me around the head with a big dirty lump of steel. That was very brave of you, wasn’t it, huh? And now, as a result, I have a perpetual headache that serves as motivation to remind everybody of exactly who I am. Now I may not be tall and handsome, I am not a Japanese superstar, I do not own a Ferrari, and I’m certainly not flavor of the month. Okada, you may think you’re God’s gift to professional wrestling, but you’re not! You’re CRAP! And what I am is better than you!

“And next Sunday, at AEW Dynasty, live from St. Louis, Missouri, I am going to relish the opportunity to prove it in front of the entire world. You understand me, hm? Good.” The Bastard is ready, will he violently end The Rainmaker’s reign?

 

AEW Women’s World Championship Eliminator: Toni Storm w/ Luther & Mariah May VS AZM w/ Anna Jay!

The leading lady of AEW knows her next big picture will have “Lightning Daffodil” starring against her, but she has to be careful not to take tonight’s performance too lightly. Will Storm strike down AZM here in Kentucky? Or will the Highspeed Superstar find her way into the Dynasty picture?

The bell rings and the fans rally up already. The two circle, feel things out, and then tie up. Storm throws AZM down then laughs at her, but AZM gets right up. They reset, circle again, and tie up. They go around, Storm puts AZM on ropes, then sits her down! Storm poses and the fans cheer, but AZM is right up to fire forearms! The fans rally, Storm just shrugs those off!

That was certainly fast and furious, but you can’t beat a classic like Timeless Toni! Mariah returns from backstage with a couple glasses of the bubbly. Mariah and Toni link arms while they drink up, and Storm brings Mariah to her bosom. Storm cuddles Mariah, then shoves her, then drags her back up to bring her away. Will nothing and no one take the spotlight away from the AEW Women’s World Champion?

 

Backstage interview with Red Velvet.

Lexi Nair is now with The Chef and brings up tonight’s title match with Athena. How is Velvet feeling about such a high profile match? High profile? Red Velvet IS high profile! And she saw what Lexi’s “boss,” Athena had to say, really stirring up the pot. But Athena, you wanna stir it up? They can stir it up? In BOTB’s main event, Red Velvet will knock you out! Red Velvet is not a stranger to main events, title pictures or high profile matches. Tonight, Velvet makes an example out of Athena, and shows everyone why it was a mistake for Athena to step into Velvet’s kitchen! Will The Chef make Athena eat crow while serving up that L?

 

Mark Briscoe speaks.

“Now House of Black, I’ve been doing this dance with y’all a little while now, and I’m starting to understand how y’all operate. Starting to understand y’all’s M-O. You try to intimidate me. You try to strike fear into the hearts of men. Well I done told you, I fear no man, I fear no evil. And ancient wisdom says the violent take it by force. Now lemme tell you, Eddie Kingston, Adam Copeland, and Mark Briscoe, we some violent men! And at Dynasty, we bringing the violence, babeh! So heed my advice, House of Black! Be afraid, be very afraid!” The Sussex County Chicken is ready for a fight, will he, the Rated R Superstar and Mad King tear down The House of Black once and for all?

 

Tony Schiavone is on stage.

He says Dynasty is coming, and a big match on that card is the AEW Women’s World title, Timeless Toni Storm VS the former champion, Thunder Rosa! The fans cheer as La Mera Mera makes her way out and joins Schiavone on stage. Schiavone says we saw what happened on Dynamite when Storm hit her with champagne and smudged her face paint. But the fact is, Rosa never lost her title. She has a chance to redeem herself and get the title back. Rosa says that is right. Before that, she wants to address something else. See all these people here? She wants to thank all of them for making this comeback so special for her.

And of course, thank you to everyone watching at home seeing them on TBS, TNT and all over the world! Without you, we wouldn’t have made all these wonderful memories the last five years. Without you, we wouldn’t have made AEW what it is today. The fans cheer that, and Rosa says she is here for a reason. That is to remind people that she doesn’t need help. And she means you, too, Deonna Purrazzo. Rosa wants to remind everyone that she’s done a lot on her own. When she earned her college degree, she earned her US citizenship, she helped a lot of people as a social worker, and won all those matches even before AEW, and especially when she won the AEW title.

But most importantly, Rosa fought so hard here to be in AEW, and she’s still here in AEW, because it is where the best wrestle! And “Antonia,” Rosa thought you believed the same things. What happened to you, homegirl? Weren’t they together in the ring? Weren’t they #ThunderStorm? When did Storm go completely crazy!? Rosa was so proud of being a champion, even though her body couldn’t carry her as far as her passion. Rosa had to heal. Then that day, something died inside of her. But Rosa has a chance, another opportunity, and it is important that Toni knows it will happen in St. Louis.

Rosa wants to humble Toni, to remind her that Rosa didn’t leave because she “couldn’t carry” the weight of that title. At Dynasty, Rosa carries more than that title. She will carry the pride of HER people, of her family, and if she has to break every single bone in her body to uplift and empower the women of this locker room fighting for just one opportunity and respect, because they also believe in AEW… Then Antonia, kiss your little clone goodbye. You made a big mistake on trying to erase Rosa’s mask. You don’t wanna see what’s underneath. You can’t kill what’s already dead! And on Sunday, Rosa comes for Storm, for the title, and to drag Storm’s soul to HELL!!

La Mera Mera is all fired up, and she smears her own face paint to make her point. Will she smash that spotlight and leave the leading lady in the dark?

 

Deonna Purrazzo speaks.

“Thunder Rosa, if you don’t want my help, that’s fine. I’ll help myself. When I staked my claim at the AEW Women’s World Championship, it wasn’t personal. It’s because frankly, I don’t think Toni Storm embodies what it means to be a world champion. But I do. I’m a workhorse, I’m a thoroughbred, I am the Virtuosa, Deonna Purrazzo. And I could stand here, make excuses about why I’m not the AEW Women’s World Champion right now, or I could do something about it. It seems if I can’t get one Toni Storm, I might as well get the other. So next week, Mariah May VS The Virtuosa, Deonna Purrazzo, and I’m gonna break your arm.”

The message has been sent, will Deonna make sure the leading lady’s understudy won’t make it to Dynasty to support Toni Storm?

 

BREAKING NEWS for Dynasty!

To raise the stakes on this match, The Young Bucks VS FTR Part 4, it will be a LADDER MATCH! No pinfalls or submissions, only the team that can literally rise above will become the NEW AEW World Tag Team Champions! But is this still playing right into the EVPs’ hands? Or can Cash Wheeler & Dax Harwood find a way to come out on top?

 

The Don Callis Family speaks.

Kyle Fletcher says tonight in the main event, he and Will Hobbs are on a mission for the Don Callis family. That is to protect the golden goose. This Wednesday Night Dynamite, Claudio will end up a cakewalk for Ospreay! And Dynasty, Bryan will be the exact same thing, all thanks to DCF. Hobbs says not to worry about next week, let’s just focus on tonight. Tonight, they got Claudio and Danielson, and tonight the DCF expects a hefty fine. Bryan might as well just expect not to walk out on his own. One last message has been sent, but now it’s time to put up or shut up! Will the Protostar & Powerhouse pulverize the BCC?

My Thoughts:

Really good Collision, though half of it was a go-home to BOTB X with it being on right after this. Good promos from Athena and Billie, from The Undisputed Kingdom, and Red Velvet, but yeah, no titles are changing hands, even if it is the tenth BOTB special. Good promo from Mark Briscoe to add hype to the coming Six Man Tag, and of course The House of Black won tonight’s Six Man Tag. Good promo from Storm and Mariah ahead of Storm’s match with AZM that Storm of course won, but also good stuff with Anna and Mariah fighting. Good promos from Rosa and Deonna to add to the build, and maybe Rosa beats Storm at Dynasty, but hard to say with a week still to go.

Good promo from Jericho and Taz to set up this whole “meeting” with Hook, and I have a feeling that is where #LionHook really falls apart and we get Jericho VS Hook for the FTW Championship at Dynasty, or maybe Double or Nothing at the latest. Really good match from Shibata and Moriarty, and good save from Hook after to add a little more to the FTW Championship match scheduled for BOTB. Great match from Garcia VS Angelico though it was just for the sake of having a great match. I think I said before but Garcia really should get at a title after Dynasty, just not sure what title that’ll be.

Pac has a good promo to call out Okada, and then quite the big move for the tag title match to now be a ladder match. If feel like that’s just them telegraphing that The Bucks are winning because ladder matches are certainly more their thing than FTR’s. And good promos from both BCC and DCF, though the latter wasn’t needed other than to fill time. We know what Kyle & Hobbs were gonna go for after Callis’ promo, we didn’t need them doubling down on it. And while BCC of course won the match, the DCF then of course attacked after. The math here is a bit of a wash, Claudio surely loses to Ospreay, and then Ospreay and Bryan go in more or less even so it could be anyone’s win at Dynasty.

My Score: 8.7/10
