But Moxley says fine, and he puts the chair back outside. Moxley then pushes Jeff over and gives him some ground ‘n’ pound! Moxley then has a kneeling cover, TWO! Jeff is toughing it out so Moxley goes out to check what is around. Did he just grab a pen off the desk!? Moxley storms in with the pen, stands Jeff up, and JABS him with the pen!!

AEW shares footage from earlier today.

The Executive Vice Presidents, The Young Bucks, arrived in style, and Nick said, “God is good,” to which Matt replied, “All the time.” But then a stage hand hands Nick & Matt tonight’s schedule and directed them towards the office. Nick was offended, he is getting sick of the disrespect. Their birth certificates say Nicolas Lee and Matthew John Jackson, do not forget that. Yes, sir… Just for that, that’s a $500 fine! Nick- er, Nicolas, heads out and Matthew tells the stage hand it’s okay, Nicolas is just a hothead. But yeah, pay that fine by end of day, please and thank you. Let’s have a good show, huh?

 

Wardlow w/ The Undisputed Kingdom VS Komander w/ Alex Abrahantes!

The War Dog is himself on a roll and is hunting down his own shot at the AEW World Championship. Adam Cole rolls along in what was Roderick Strong’s wheelchair, will he and the boys be proud of their big man? Or will the AAA Cruiserweight Champion show them all what he can do all by himself?

It seems Cole is joining commentary even. He asks if we’re ready to see an ass-kicking like we’ve never seen before, courtesy of his “good pal,” Wardlow. The bell rings and Komander circles with Wardlow. Wardlow has a smug grin on his face as he eggs Komander on. Komander and Wardlow tie up, and Wardlow throws Komander down!

Wardlow paces while Komander flounders. Wardlow then stomps Komander, drags him back up, and CHOKMES him on ropes! The ref counts, Wardlow lets off at 4, and Komander sputters. The Kingdom is there talking trash but Wardlow also steps on Komander. The ref counts, Wardlow counts along, and lets off at 4. Cole says Wardlow is in complete control, and Wardlow fireman’s carries. The fans rally while Wardlow walks around, then spins for the F 5000!!

Wardlow hauls Komander up, but Komander RANAS Wardlow into steel steps! Komander hurries up to the apron, to slingshot and DROPKICK! But then Wardlow box jumps to join Komander!? Komander ducks the backhand, and kicks the ropes to jam Wardlow up! Then SHOTGUNS Wardlow to a corner! The fans fire up as Komander climbs!

Wardlow says okay, and he puts Komander up for the WAR HAMMER!! And then Wardlow gets Komander up, for the POWERBOMB!! Cover, Wardlow wins!

Winner: Wardlow, by pinfall

Komander gave Wardlow more of a fight than Wardlow wanted, and he took a bit more damage than expected. But then The Kingdom drags Komander back in so Roddy can shout at him! “KOMANDERRR~! You should’ve taken the deal that I offered you on Saturday. But now, now you’re gonna pay the price.” But wait! Orange Cassidy makes his way out here! Freshly Squeezed has Best Friends with him, they aren’t gonna let an amigo get beat down! They stand against The Kingdom while the fans fire up but Roddy tells everyone to shut up! Roddy “thanks” Best Friends for coming out here, but see ya later.

Fans boo as The Kingdom bails. But Cassidy taunts Roddy with the International Championship. Will Roddy get his comeuppance at Revolution? Or will he just add more gold to the Kingdom’s collection?

 

Tony Schiavone has a sit-down interview with the Relentless Icons and the Absolute Tag Team Champions.

Sting & Darby Allin sit on the left side, Ricky Starks & “Big Bill” Morrissey are on the right, and Schiavone in the middle notes that next week, Dynamite in Phoenix, Arizona will see these two teams battle for the AEW World Tag Team Championships. Starks wanted this time to talk to Darby & Sting, but there is to be no physicality. Ricky, the floor is yours. Starks says that he just felt it’d be appropriate to actually talk face-to-face since this is all about respect now. Starks wanted to take this time to personally tell Sting, what a journey he has had in AEW. “But don’t forget, this journey here started with me.”

It started in 2021, also AEW Revolution, after five long years of Sting being away. Starks and Sting got to mix it up. Sting asks what he did, Starks hasn’t gotten to that yet. Starks says Sting had his first win in AEW over Starks, and that doesn’t sit right. Darby speaks up by saying if we’re talking about respect, how that’s what this is about. Starks  says he respects The Icon, right? Then that’s a load of BS, because we all know what this is really about. Starks wants this as a stepping stone in his career. He doesn’t respect Sting! Or anybody, really! Look at Darby when he’s talking to you! Schiavone has things cool down.

Darby says this is not some stepping stone. Sting’s career is NOT someone’s stepping stone! Starks says Darby is the one who had to go and attach himself to somebody like Sting! Starks’ point is, next week, two things happen, and he wants us to know now: one, Starks & Bill retain the AEW World Tag Team Championships; and two, Starks will get his lick back. The vendetta inside of him, the chip on his shoulder, well guess what? Starks will make sure Sting doesn’t even make it to Revolution. As for Darby, Starks has NO respect for him, never gonna happen, there is no space for it! Who the hecc is Darby?

Bill says he’s heard a lot of talking. Sting & Darby just run their mouth about “greatest tag partner I’ve ever had” and “Sting’s gonna retire a tag team champion!” Oh, wow, so beautiful. But all Sting & Darby have done is brag about how they’re gonna go into Revolution as champions, without ever mentioning Starks & Bill, without ever talking to Starks & Bill. They have done what everyone else has done and overlooked Starks & Bill. But next Wednesday, Sting & Darby will represent everyone else here in AEW, and Starks & Bill will take out all of their frustrations on them.

Sting sighs and says he’ll start with Starks. Sting was the first to get face to face with Starks. Sting admired Starks back then, he was the only one who had the balls to get in Sting’s face and talk back. As far as respect goes, you gotta earn that. And then big man, well, Sting has faced many big men before. The only difference here is that they were killers, we’re not sure about Bill yet. And Darby says he’ll just end it here with this: Darby does respect Starks. But every time Starks points the finger at someone else, there is only one person to blame, and that is Starks.

Starks SPLASHES Darby with water! Then he dares Darby to hit him! Sting calms Darby down. Sting has always hated talking anyway. Darby will hit Starks, in Phoenix. And uh, so will Sting. We’re just one week away from this heated showdown, will it be SHOWTIME in Phoenix?

 

Chris Jericho VS Kyle Fletcher w/ The Don Callis Family!

The Ocho wants to be done with The Don Callis Family, and the Don Callis Family just wants Jericho to be done for good! Win or lose tonight, Jericho will still have to give Konosuke Takeshita a rematch next week in Phoenix, but can he survive the Aussie Arrow tonight? Or will the #Protostar tear down the Wizard and leave nothing left over for The Alpha?

The bell rings and Jericho circles with Kyle. Kyle shoves Jericho so Jericho SLAPS Kyle! Kyle SLAPS, Jericho fires haymakers and the brawl is on! The fans fire up as they throw hands and Jericho has the edge. Jericho has Kyle in a corner, whips him corner to corner, but Kyle reverses. Jericho BOOTS back, then runs up, but into a scoop and MICHINOKU DRIVER! Cover, TWO!! Jericho survives but Kyle rains down fists! Callis loves it as he watches from ringside. Fans boo but Kyle lets off. Kyle brings Jericho up, CHOPS him, then whips. Jericho holds ropes, then he DUMPS Kyle as he runs in!

Jericho triangle jumps to DROPKICK Kyle down! Fans fire up, Jericho hurries outside, and the ref makes sure Callis and “Powerhouse” Hobbs stay back. Jericho glares at Callis, Callis goes running but Jericho pursues! The fans fire up but then Kyle CLOBBERS Jericho from behind! Kyle roars but fans boo, and Kyle throws hands on Jericho. Kyle puts Jericho in, storms up on him, and puts him in a corner. Kyle ROCKS Jericho with a right, then climbs up to rain down fists! Fans count along, and Kyle goes all the way to nine, before he winds up, and flips everyone off! Then Kyle ROCKS Jericho! Kyle whips corner to corner, runs in, FOREARM SMASH!

Kyle snapmares Jericho to KICK him in the back! Jericho writhes, Kyle covers, TWO! Kyle is annoyed but Callis coaches him up. Kyle goes to a corner, climbs up, but Jericho CHOPS first! And CHOPS again! And again! Jericho climbs to the very top, to rain down fists on Kyle! The fans count, Jericho goes to TEN then SUPER STEINERS! Kyle lands hard on his tailbone! But Hobbs distracts the ref so that Callis can trip Jericho up! Fans boo but Callis acts dumb. Kyle stomps Jericho at the ropes again and again, then lets off to soak up heat while Dynamite goes picture in picture.

The ref reprimands Kyle for those stomps, but misses Callis CHOKING Jericho on the apron! Callis gets away with that one, too, and then Kyle drags Jericho up. Kyle TOSSES Jericho out, distracts the ref, and that lest Callis & Hobbs stomp away! They back off in time, Kyle goes out after Jericho, and he pushes Jericho into the ring. Kyle stalks Jericho, sits him up, and he ELBOWS Jericho in the head! Jericho CHOPS in return! And CHOPS again! And CHOPS again! Kyle CLAWS Jericho’s face and smothers him in the corner! The ref counts, Kyle lets off, but Hobbs runs up to CHOKE Jericho!

Hobbs gets away with that, too, and Kyle storms back up. Jericho flips Kyle off, so Kyle slaps him around. Kyle CHOPS Jericho, then pie faces him down. Jericho flounders to ropes but Kyle kneels on him to CHOKE him! The ref counts, Kyle lets off at 4 ad soaks up the heat. Hobbs is lurking but the ref keeps watch on Jericho. Jericho CHOPS  Kyle, and CHOPS, and CHOPS! Kyle CHOPS back! Jericho CHOPS again! They CHOP back and forth as Dynamite returns to single picture, then Jericho fires off forearms! Jericho whips, but Kyle holds ropes to then KICK back! Jericho swings but Kyle gets around, HALF ‘N’ HALF SUPLEX!

Jericho flounders to a corner, the fans rally up, and Kyle runs in to GAMANGIRI! Kyle reels Jericho in to suplex and BRAINBUSTER! Cover, TWO!! Jericho survives and Kyle scowls but Hobbs & Callis coach him up. Kyle paces around Jericho while Jericho sits up. Kyle scoops Jericho but Jericho slips free! Jericho then rebounds to run Kyle over! And run him over again! Jericho keeps moving, Kyle puts him on the apron but Jericho goes up top to DOUBLE AX HANDLE! The fans fire up and Jericho keeps moving, and he counters hip toss with a FACEBUSTER! Fans fire up with Jericho as he LION- NO, Hobbs DECKS him!!

The ref was busy with Callis, so Hobbs gets away with another one! Fans boo as Jericho is basically 3v1 in there! Kyle crawls to a cover, TWO! Jericho survives and Kyle grows frustrated.

Deonna Purrazzo speaks.

“Each one of my tattoos represents a different time in my life. The start of my wrestling ambitions, a Bible verse, song lyrics, my parents’ handwriting. And then, I have a duck. Toni (Storm) and I got this in the UK on a whim. It was meaningless and silly, but the more I looked at it and thought about it, it symbolizes so much more. It symbolizes two girls on their journey across the globe to become some of the best in the world. It symbolizes my personal journey of who I was, and who I am: The Virtousa. Toni, what I wanna know is, when you look at your ankle, what does that tattoo mean to you?”

 

The Bang Bang Scissor Gang is here!

Jay White & The Gunns make their way out, and then say hold on, don’t forget! The Acclaimed & Billy Gunn walk out to join them! The ROH World Six Man and AEW World Trios Champions are united, and Bowens says, “NEW~ ORLEAAANS~! The Bang Bang Scissor Gang has arrived! Scissor me, Daddy Ass~!” And he does~! The fans are all fired up for this super group, and White gets the mic. “Whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa~! Look, look, look! I love your guys’ thing. They clearly love your guys’ thing. I’m a big, big fan of scissoring, but don’t forget. We already have our own thing, too. Guns up for my New Orleans Gold~ Memberrrrs~!”

The fans cheer and put ’em up, and Caster says, “Yo.” “Yo!” “Yo!” “Yo!” “YO!” “YO!” “Listen.” Caster says we are looking at the six men who have dominated trios wrestling for years! But it’s not just the six of them, there is someone missing. Bowens! Get the Cardblade! Bowens goes out, and surprise! The Jay White cutout is still here! But the BCG explains no no no, they retired that thing weeks ago. How did that even get here? Oh, okay. Bowens TOSSES Cardblade, which White is a little upset about. Colten tells Austin, get the JUICE BOARD! Austin goes out, he brings out “JUICE! JUICE! JUICE!”

The fans cheer as “Juice Board Robinson” is here. Austin then says, “And if you’re not down with the Bang Bang Scissor Gang, then we-” Billy cuts off his son from continuing. Billy says he is literally right here. Austin says, “Dad, this is kinda my thing.” Uh, well, it was Billy’s thing when Austin was still a… Hmm… Let’s not go there. But Billy asks New Orleans if he should show ’em how to do it. “YES!” “And if you’re not down with the Bang Bang Scissor Gang, we’ve got TWO WORDS FOR YA!!” “SUCK IT!!” Oh, no, this is a new era. GUNS UP! Austin cheers, and then the whole family winds it up! And… SEXTUPLE GUN SCISSORS!

The Acclaimed, Gunn Club, Bullet Club Gold, Bang Bang Scissor Gang, whatever you call it, it’s a good time. Will this super six pack soon be running all of AEW & ROH?

 

Toni Storm is here!

She, along with butler, Luther, and superfan, Mariah May, heads down the ramp and she once again joins commentary so she may watch what is up next.

Deonna Purrazzo VS Taya Valkyrie w/ Johnny TV!

The Virtuosa has already spoken on her past with “Timeless” Toni Storm, but her wanting after that AEW Women’s World Championship has upset one La Wera Loca. Will Taya prove Deonna is not “TV Ready” just yet? Or will Deonna prove she is more than ready to share the spotlight with her old friend?

The bell rings and Deonna circles with Taya. They tie up, go around, and Taya pushes Deonna way. The fans rally up, the two reset and tie up again. They’re in a deadlock but Taya pulls hair to put Deonna in a corner! The ref counts, and Taya lets off to CHOP! The fans duel, Taya runs up but Deonna dodges! Deonna arm-drags Taya into a cording hold then adds a chinbar. Taya slips through but Deonna wrenches. Deonna ducks a lariat to wrench again, but Taya swings again. Deonna ducks, wrenches, and Toni says she would’ve told Taya chin up and tits out, but Taya already got the memo. Taya swings again, but Deonna WRINGS her out!

Deonna has the cording hold and chinbar again but Taya endures. Taya fights up, reaches out and has the ROPEBREAK! The ref counts, Deonna lets off, and Taya runs up to TACKLE Deonna! Deonna rains down elbows into the leg, then shifts around to have a deathlock. Taya pulls hair, floats to a facelock, but Deonna wrenches out. Taya rolls, fights up, and she puts Deonna in a corner. The ref counts but Taya CHOPS! Taya whips corner to corner but Deonna ducks the boot! Deonna runs, ducks ‘n’ dodges, and tilt-o-whirls to RANA! Taya bails out and fans are torn. Johnny keeps Taya calm, and Taya shakes out her arms.

Deonna makes sure Toni is paying attention here, and she builds speed. Taya avoids the sliding dropkick and runs up the ramp! Johnny says Deonna doesn’t deserve to be in the ring with Miss TV! But that distraction allows Taya to get back in the ring. Deonna brushes Johnny off and turns around, but into Taya’s SPEAR! Fans fire up while Taya stomps Deonna, then RAMS her into steel steps! Taya kisses her hubby and Storm gags as Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Taya drags Deonna up, puts her in the ring, and she stomps Deonna around. Taya drags Deonna up, SMACKS her off the mat, then looms over her. Taya taunts the fans, covers Deonna, TWO! Deonna snarls but Taya kicks her around. Taya stands Deonna up but Deonna ROCKS her! Taya ROCKS Deonna back, then CHOPS her in the corner! Taya stomps away, the ref counts, but Taya lets off to then dig her boots in! The ref reprimands and counts, Taya lets off at 4 and goes corner to corner. Taya runs back in, METEORA! Taya drags Deonna to a cover, TWO! Taya drags Deonna up and bumps her off buckles.

Taya runs in again but Deonna ELBOWS her! Deonna kicks, Taya blocks and KICKS the leg! Taya then puts Deonna in the ropes, KICKS and runs, SLIDING GERMAN! Taya smiles and soaks up the cheers and jeers, then she drags Deonna out to ROCK her! Deonna hits back and the two brawl at ringside! Taya whips, Deonna reverses, but Taya stops herself from hitting steps! Taya ELBOWS Deonna, but then Deonna wrenches her to RUSSIAN LEG SWEEP into the apron! Both women fall from that double-edged move, but Johnny coaches Taya up. Taya rolls into the ring while Deonna drags herself up and in.

Dynamite returns to single picture as Taya and Deonna rise. They throw forearms back and forth again and the fans rally up. Taya wobbles but she still hits back! Deonna gets the edge, things get fast and furious, and Taya shoves. Deonna rebounds to LARIAT! Deonna rallies, kicks low, and runs up to KNEE LIFT! Then RUSSIAN LEG SWEEP! Deonna rolls to flip Taya over, but Taya rolls Deonna! TWO, and Deonna BOOTS Taya! Taya falls, Deonna falls on the cover, TWO!! Deonna is frustrated and she drags Taya up. The forearms start flying again, Taya fires palm strikes and a ROLLING ELBOW!

Taya mule kicks, but Deonna swings! But Taya catches her for a BLUE THUNDER BOMB! Cover, TWO!! Deonna survives but Taya keeps on her! Taya ties up the legs, sits Deonna up, but Deonna catches the leg to get a HEEL HOOK! Taya endures, reaches out, kicks at Deonna, and Deonna lets go. Taya SLIDING LARIATS! Cover, TWO!! Deonna is still in this but Taya stays on her! Taya ties up the legs, turns Deonna over but Deonna kicks free! Taya runs back in, Deonna TOSSES her out then builds speed! Deonna BASEBALL SLIDES Taya down! Deonna stares Storm down but Storm puts up fisticuffs!

Fans fire up as Storm dares Deonna to make a move. Taya runs up, but Deonna sends her into Storm! Fans fire up as Deonna puts Taya back in, then runs up. Deonna ducks ‘n’ dodges and BOOTS Taya, then wrangles her by the arms! Deonna makes Storm watch as she has a seated DOUBLE FUJIWARA!! A new take on the Venus De Milo, and Taya TAPS! Deonna wins!!

Winner: Deonna Purrazzo, by submission

Deonna lets Taya go but she never looks away from Storm. Storm seems rather speechless right now. But will the leading lady of AEW have a response when it’s finally her turn to act?

 

BREAKING NEWS for Rampage!

On the road to Phoenix, Starks & Bill are looking to sharpen their edge! They take on John Silver & Alex Reynolds of the Dark Order, will the Absolute Tag Team Champions be more than ready for next Wednesday?

Backstage interview with Darby Allin.

Renee Paquette is with the Relentless One and notes how heated things got just earlier. She would… “love” to talk more about his adoration for The Young Bucks. Uh, what? Is that a serious question? But then The Bucks walk in and say that is a great question! He should definitely answer it! Renee deserves a raise for that one. But the Bucks assure Darby that they come in peace. This is vibe town tonight, right? Darby asks if they told Renee to ask that question. Oh, c’mon, Darby! The Bucks love him! He’s an AEW original! “Change the world,” right? He fits that quote! This is what AEW does! Young, hot talent, just like The Bucks!

But one thing Matthew wants to know that has him a little “perturbed,” why is Darby letting some 65-year-old leech take more money from him? Save some for the rest of us, right? But see, long after Sting is gone, which will actually be very, very soon, Matthew has a new idea for a new gimmick! Darby & The Bucks join up, and they become a new hot trio! The Bucks admittedly went through a goth phase in middle school, but they can bring that back. But all jokes aside, The Bucks have been back for about a month now, and Darby is just ducking and dodging them. That is unprofessional. He’s even ghosting their texts!

Does Darby have a problem with the Bucks or what? Darby says, “No offense, but there’s only one thing on my mind, and that’s the AEW Tag Championships. So…” Darby leaves, and the Bucks say they’ll just have to get his attention a different way. But hey, great show, Renee. Let’s kill it! Renee thanks Nicolas & Matthew, but just what will the EVPs do to force some respect around here?

 

Samoa Joe is here!

The AEW World Champion kept a close eye on Hangman Page last week, now he chooses to keep a close eye on his other potential challenger tonight. Will Joe like what he sees from The Realest?

Dealer’s Choice: Swerve Strickland VS ???

Hangman Page “appreciated” Swerve telling him who his opponent for tonight was early, but he chose to make Swerve wait through the whole f’n show. Will Swerve be ready for whoever this could be? Or will New Orleans soon be whose house? SWERVE’S HOUSE!

The fans fire up when they hear the music, because yes, it is ROB VAN DAM! Swerve doesn’t seem pleased, but Joe sure is, because this shows how important his reign as champion is to the world of wrestling! Only the very best are showing up to chase after his title! Hangman then speaks via the tron! He says Liona really was a good choice, because he came close, just not close enough. And Hangman is gonna go ahead and guess Swerve doesn’t know how to read, because these Dealer’s Choice matches had some fine print. Not only do they get to pick each other’s opponents, but they also get to pick the stipulations!

So now, not only is Swerve facing Rob Van Dam, but he is facing Rob Van Dam… IN A HARDCORE MATCH! Good luck. Swerve is even more upset than he was a minute ago!

Dealer’s Choice Hardcore Match: Swerve Strickland VS Rob Van Dam!

The bell rings, and RVD already has a chair! He CHUCKS it into Swerve’s face!! Fans fire up as Swerve falls out of the ring! Joe is loving it even more now! RVD goes out to fetch Swerve, and sends him into railing! RVD then whips Swerve into more railing, and Swerve tumbles around! RVD storms over, runs up, and LEG LARIATS Swerve against railing! Fans fire up, RVD has another chair and he puts that in the ring. RVD whips Swerve into railing again, then LEG LARIATS again! The fans fire up while Swerve wobbles, and RVD goes up the steps. The fans join in with “ROB! VAN! DAM!” and then RVD whips Swerve, into more railing!

Swerve tumbles up and over into the front row! The fans are thunderous while RVD goes looking for some things. Fans want tables, but Swerve tumbles back to ringside. RVD puts Swerve in the ring, on the apron, and then “ROB! VAN! DAM!” slingshots to GUILLOTINE LEG DROP! Swerve sputters and coughs but RVD follows him in. The fans chant “You Still Got It!” but Taz says RVD never lost it. RVD whips, Swerve hits ropes hard, and then he tumbles out. RVD drags Swerve over to SMACK off railing! RVD has fans move aside then he puts Swerve along railing for some fast hands. RVD then goes to the apron, for the FLYING GUILLOTINE LEG DROP!!

Fans are thunderous over that RVD classic, and even chant “E C DUB! E C DUB!” RVD rises up and the fans fire up while Dynamite goes picture in picture.

RVD brings Swerve around, puts him back in, but Swerve KICKS the ropes to jam RVD up! Swerve then turns RVD, DRAPING NECKBREAKER! Swerve drags RVD back out of the ring, fireman’s carries, and gives him SNAKE EYES off railing! Swerve snarls and then glares at Joe, before he runs in around the way, to go up the steps and FLYING HOUSE CALL!! Swerve scowls while RVD falls and the fans fire up again. Swerve goes looking under the ring, and he brings out a TABLE! Fans cheer that while Swerve brings it around to set it up. RVD hobbles over but Swerve kicks him first. Swerve then scoops RVD, but RVD slips fere!

RVD ROUNDHOUSES Swerve, and Swerve clutches that ear. RVD gets the fans to join in on another “ROB! VAN! DAM!” then he goes after Swerve in the ring. Swerve throws body shots, knees, and then bumps RVD off buckles. Swerve has a chair, he JAMS RVD low! Swerve wedges that chair into a corner, then stalks RVD. Swerve brings RVD up while Dynamite returns to single picture. Swerve wrenches then whips corner to corner, and RVD hits steel chair face first! Cover, TWO!! RVD survives and Joe is sure RVD still has this, but Swerve has a chair. “This is Awesome!” as Swerve puts the chair back in the corner.

Swerve goes back for RVD, and then he whips corner to corner again. RVD stops that to send Swerve in, and now Swerve hits chair face first! RVD runs to ROLLING THUNDER! Swerve sputters and the fans fire up again! RVD gets the other chair, and fans fire up as he runs in, SKATEBOARD DROPKICK!! Swerve writhes, RVD drag shim to a cover, TWO!! Swerve is still in this but RVD stalks after him. RVD runs in again to somersault, but Swerve stops the Monkey Flip! He turns this around, to POWERBOMB RVD on the chair!! Cover, TWO!?!? RVD survives again and Swerve grows frustrated.

Swerve drags RVD back up, suplexes, but RVD blocks! RVD suplexes but Swerve fights it! Swerve and RVD throw body shots, but RVD wrenches. Swerve spins through, slips around, but RVD switches. RVD sits Swerve on the top rope! RVD then ROUNDHOUSES Swerve in the chest! Swerve sputters, RVD goes up a corner, and RVD- NO, Brian Cage SHOVES RVD down! Hangman’s Hardcore match let the door open to interference! The Machine saves Swerve, but HOOK rushes out here! Hook and Cage are on a collision course over the FTW Championship, so Hook SMACKS Cage with a chair! Fans fire up and Joe wants the “little savage” to get Cage!

Hook JAMS Cage, then SMACKS him again! Cage tumbles out of the ring, but Hook keeps after him! Cage kicks low, and he brings Hook around to brawl with him! RVD is surprised, but then Swerve sneaks up behind him! Half nelson, but RVD fights free! RVD wrenches, body scissor rolls, TWO!! Swerve escapes, kicks, but RVD blocks to step over and WHEEL KICK! Both men are down but the fans fire up for RVD. RVD rises, he calls his shot, and runs, but Swerve somersaults to avoid Rolling Thunder! Somersault again, for the COMPLETE SHOT! Cover, TWO!! RVD stays alive and Swerve is furious!

Swerve drags RVD out and fans still want tables. Swerve gets one of the chairs first, RVD hobbles around, but Swerve pursues. Swerve throws hands, then goes up to the apron for a BOOT! RVD takes a seat, and Swerve lines up the shot, FLYING KILL STOMPS!! RVD falls out of the chair and he might’ve even clipped the steel steps! Joe wants medical personnel to get out here just in case, but Swerve drags RVD up. Swerve shows no mercy as he pushes RVD around, and RVD flounders into a drop zone. Swerve goes up, but RVD rises! CHAIR CHUCK! Swerve falls from the top, and falls through the table!! The fans lose their minds while Joe is loving this!

RVD manages to get outside and he drags Swerve back into the ring. RVD grabs another chair, places Swerve on top, and then adds the other chair! RVD makes Swerve into a sandwich, and he goes up top! FIVE STAR FROG FLOP as Swerve moves!! RVD flops right onto the chair!! Swerve hurries up to throw the chair, and FULL METAL HOUSE CALL!! Cover, TWO?!?! HOW?!?! Swerve doesn’t hesitate, he goes up top, but RVD anchors him! RVD climbs up and fires shots, but Swerve SMACKS RVD off the buckles! Swerve rises, RVD sits up, Swerve mocks the “Rob! Van! Dam!” but RVD flips him off! KILL STOMPS!!!! Cover, Swerve wins!!

Winner: Swerve Strickland, by pinfall

Hangman raised the ante on Swerve but Swerve did not fold! Swerve keeps pace with The Cowboy, but speaking of! The Cowboy makes his way right down to the ring! Swerve scowls and Joe is intrigued as Hangman has a mic. Swerve also gets a mic while Hangman says, “Congratulations, you evil bastard! Swerve, later tonight, the rankings for the AEW World Championship come out, and despite my efforts tonight, we are both undefeated, so I can only assume that we are at the top of that list. And you said that you wanted Samoa Joe, that you wanted the World Championship, that you needed it!

“Then I need you to look in my eyes, and I need you to know, that I will never let that happen!” Fans are torn there, but Hangman tells Swerve, “I am the next World Champion, not you.” Swerve laughs and says Hangman still doesn’t get it. He is still repeating himself over an dover! Swerve has beaten Hangman TWICE NOW! Swerve has nothing to prove! Not to Hangman, not to anyone else! Hangman is just upset with the fact that he just can’t beat Swerve. The fans are again torn. But as Swerve goes to leave, Hangman says Swerve keeps on saying that, and it’s probably because he thinks if he says it enough, it’ll be true.

The two times Swerve and Hangman fought, Swerve didn’t beat Hangman! It took Swerve’s entire Mogul Embassy to do it! Hangman knows that man to man, when it counts, Swerve can’t lace Hangman’s boots. Swerve says y’know what? Hangman must be a masochist or something. But Swerve will give Hangman what he wants! Swerve VS Hangman, one more time! Round three! And after that, they are DONE! After Swerve moves past Hangman, all he’s going for is the AEW World Championship.

Joe smiles as his top two contenders are ready to tear each other down, and Tony Khan already makes it official! Next week, Dynamite in Phoenix, it will be Swerve VS Hangman to determine THE #1 contender, the winner getting their shot at Samoa Joe on Sunday, March 3rd! Who wins the trilogy’s finale to head for Revolution?


My Thoughts:

A great Dynamite here, and they sure are building the Phoenix episode to be a big one. Really good sit-down interview promo from Sting, Darby, Starks & Bill ahead of their tag title match, and then good promo where The Bucks abuse their authority and make Renee ask and say what they want her to ask and say. This is definitely steering things to what I was thinking, the Bucks are totally going to abuse their authority again and get that tag title match for Revolution. A shame Starks & Bill get the short end of this story because they have to lose the titles, but if anything, it feeds into The Bucks’ gimmick of being Heel authority figures, and we might reset things to where Starks is a Face rallying against the forces against him.

Awesome opener from Moxley and Jeff Hardy, and they also did a good job getting the CMLL stars involved. That 8 Man is definitely going their way on Rampage, and maybe Hechicero beats Bryan, but there’s definitely more brewing so that the Blackpool Combat Club is gonna battle with the CMLL luchadores. Speaking of luchadores, really good match from Komander and Wardlow, and good win for Wardlow, I just hope that bad leg isn’t too bad. It’d be a shame if there was another injury hindering the overall Undisputed Kingdom. But good move of Best Friends chasing Undisputed Kingdom off and adding heat to Cassidy’s match with Roddy.

Really good stuff out of Jericho VS Fletcher, with the Callis Family of course doing all they can to cheat this win. But I should’ve figured Jericho would win so that he’d have momentum going into the match with Takeshita. Jericho beat Takeshita 1v1 at the DDP Pro show near the end of 2023 so Takeshita wants his win back, but I’m not so sure Takeshita gets that win back. He should, though, especially since the Callis Family beating Jericho down can prompt the return of Paul “The Giant” Wight and Revolution having JeriShow VS Hobbs & Takeshita so that Wight can avenge being put through a car windshield.

Really fun promo from Bang Bang Scissor Gang, though it was mostly just for them to have some fun with the catchphrases and hand signs and the cutouts. No real story stuff, maybe that happens on Collision or in Phoenix, because at some point, these guys need to make a move on the other titles they are after. Deonna had a good promo to explain her tattoo link with Storm, and Deonna VS Taya was a great match. Storm was amazing on commentary because she just kept working to break Taz, Excalibur and Schiavone, and I’m pretty sure she managed it multiple times. Deonna VS Storm is gonna be a lot of fun regardless of who wins, but I’m thinking it’s too soon for Deonna to win the title and for Storm to lose it.

And great stuff out of the Dealer’s Choice matches. Liona had his best match since joining AEW, maybe his best ever, but of course Hangman wins out. And I love that Hangman brought up a detail that was overlooked in this stipulation, and we got to have Swerve VS RVD in a Hardcore/No Holds Barred match. It was really the latter, cuz no one tried to cover on the outside, as Hardcore matches are supposed to be Falls Count Anywhere. But whatever, great win for Swerve, Joe was great on commentary, and now we’re getting an awesome #1 contender’s match for next week. There could be a clear cut winner, or they could really go the extra mile and have some kind of draw and make a Triple Threat for Revolution. Then that Triple Threat can be epic and go any which way they want.

My Score: 8.8/10

AEW International Championship: Will Ospreay VS MJF!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Little Rock gives a standing ovation for this AEW Match of the Year contender! MJF crawls to a corner, Ospreay pursues. Ospreay puts MJF up top, ROCKS him, but has to slap some fire into himself. Ospreay goes up top, but MJF fires body shots!

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

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

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

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

 

Backstage interview Mark Briscoe & The Acclaimed.

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

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

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

 

“Big Bill” Morrissey is in the ring.

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

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

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

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

 

The Elite speak.

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

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

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

 

AEW TBS Championship: Mercedes Mone VS Nyla Rose!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

Jack Perry speaks.

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

 

Toni Storm is here!

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

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

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

 

AEW shares post show footage from Collision.

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

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

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


My Thoughts:

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

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

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

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

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

My Score: 9.1/10

Winner: Konosuke Takeshita, by pinfall

Callis is calling it “The T Trigger,” as if to poke fun at Kenny Omega. But whatever the move’s name, it was a big win for Takeshita. Callis joins Takeshita in the ring to celebrate, but Callis also has a mic. “I have something important to say.” The fans boo even more now. Callis says “This young man right here, he wrestled the match of a lifetime against Takeshita. C’mon, kid.” Tommy sits up and Callis introduces himself. And he says that was a tremendous effort. When Callis looks at Tommy, just 23 years old, the blood of the original Dynamite Kid in his veins, Callis says Tommy has everything he is looking for.

In fact, Callis was thinking on this back. He remembered his mentor, Bad News Allen, was also a mentor to Dynamite Kid. Now, Callis can be Tommy’s mentor. The fans boo but Callis says Bad News and Dynamite Kid would want this! So let’s seal the deal with a handshake! Welcome to the Don Callis Family! The fans boo and say “NO! NO!

Juice Robinson & The Gunns are here, and these #CollisionCowboys are looking to keep up their momentum as AEW heads for Wembley. Will the Unified World Trios Champions be more than ready to go All In?

Winners: The Bang Bang Gang, by pinfall

Bullet Club Gold made quick work of this match, and then Austin gets a mic. He hands that to Colten and Colten says, “Guns up for my Calgary Gold Members~! Alright, the good news is, you got to see the Bang Bang Gang, the best trios champions in the world! The bad news, last week, that turtleneck douchebag, Christian, hurt Jay White. But it’s okay, because as a quarter of the Trios Champions,” Juice can now officially BE a champion! Juice says well, he hates to say they were right but they were right. Tony Khan should’ve anointed Juice when he was told to. Now he has no choice! So with Jay White on the bench, you are lookin’ at THE A E W Unified Trios Champions!

But then someone says hold on, hold on. Christopher Daniels is here, and he doesn’t wanna make the bad news worse, but the thing is… When a team member gets hurt, they cannot allow a substitute. The fans are upset but Daniels says he must STRIP the Bang Bang Gang of those titles! Bullet Club Gold is mad, they thought Daniels was cool! But wait, here comes The Patriarchy… Christian Cage leads Mother Shayna, his “Prodigy Son” Nick Wayne, and Killswitch-Luchasaurus out. Christian tells Calgary to sit down and shut their mouths while he conducts business. Now, Daniels, that is the right call by stripping the Bang Bang Gang.

Now make another right call and anoint The Patriarchy the NEW champions right here and right now! The fans boo that even more! Daniels tells Christian to hold on. Tony Khan is not gonna like that idea any better. But here’s an idea Daniels has that TK is sure to love. Let’s have a Trios Championship match of The Bang Bang Gang VS The Patriarchy, the winners become THE Unified Trios Champions! Austin says let’s make it even easier! Let’s just do it here and now in Calgary! And if Christian ain’t down with that, they’ve got two words for him! GUNS UP!

Christian asks if Bang Bang Gang really wants to do this here and now. YES! Well, then that depends on if the fans want it. The fans cheer “YES! YES! YES!” Well of course they do, they are so desperate to see a championship since The Flames will never get one. That said, the Patriarchy ARE the next champions, BUT they aren’t tarnishing their victory by having it in Calgary. See you down the road, Bang Bang Gang. Captain Charisma is crafty, when and where will he and his “sons” step up to the challenge?

 

The House of Black speaks.

Malakai says, “Writing history is a delicate thing, Arlington, Texas. Because next week, you will be witness when The House of Black starts building what will be the foundation of Wembley.” Brody King barks, but what could they mean by that?

 

AEW shares Jeff Jarrett’s reunion with Martha & Oje Hart.

Never in Double J’s wildest dreams could he have imagined being in Calgary for his friend. After Wednesday Night Dynamite, the world now knows how special Owen Hart was as not just a wrestler but as a man. Martha is so happy that AEW has been able to honor Owen. Owen would be so happy to see this tribute. Oje says it was here in the Stampede Park that he and Jarrett met over 25 years ago. He’s never felt closer to his dad than doing these events.

Jarrett may not have won this year’s Owen Hart Cup, but can he make sure next year’s is even bigger and better?

 

ROH World Championship #1 Contender’s Match: Roderick Strong w/ The Kingdom VS Dalton Castle w/ The Outrunners!

Death Before Dishonor is less than two weeks away, and Mark Briscoe needs himself a challenger! Two former ROH World Champions, who are no strangers to each other, do battle once again to become such a challenger. Will it be the Savior of the Backbreaker or The Peacock that faces The Sussex County Chicken in Arlington?

That was almost a knockout victory there! That’s how strong Roddy is, but will he prove he’s the strongest when he takes on Mark Briscoe? Speaking of…

Mark Briscoe speaks.

“Now the fine gentlemen in the AEW front office blessed me with a week off. Thank you very much, folks. But ain’t no weeks off around here, baby! Ain’t no days off around here! This is Sandy Bah God Fork, Delaware. We dem boys, baby! Ain’t no days off! I’ve been in this ring for hours now, bustin’ my ass, gettin’ my lungs right. Cuz in just a matter of a couple weeks, I got Blood & Guts comin’ up, Team AEW VS The Elite. Blood & Guts! The Elite! I think y’all’re a little over dressed for Blood & Guts. You might get some blood or your guts on your suits. I’m a chicken farmer, baby! Blood & Guts is what I do! That’s my currency, baby! Blood, guts, ‘n’ chicken *hit!”

Mark says The Elite can’t get dirty, they can’t get down with him! And not only that, but just earlier on this very evening, he just found out, two nights later, after Nashville, Tennessee, Blood & Guts, it’ll be Mark Briscoe VS Roderick Strong in Dallas, Texas, for the ROH World title. Roddy, you a former world champion yourself, and they’ve done this dance many times. But hey, Mark is a bit wiser. He only had two kids back then. Look at the salt in his pepper. See that wisdom? But he also knows “OC,” Orange Cassidy, and Kyle O’Reilly are gonna do their thing taking out Bennett & Taven. “Roddy, in Texas, yo ass is MINE!”

 

Program loading.

“Holo.grm” is coming to AEW, but just who is he? We find out, next week!

 

Stokely Hathaway & Kris Statlander talk backstage.

Big Stoke appreciates what Stat did last Wednesday night. Kris says that was divine. Stoke played the gifs over and over again. Lexy Nair walks over to ask them about that moment they got involved with Willow Nightingale’s match. What were their intentions? Their intentions? C’mon, Lexy, you know Stokely’s a hater and Kris is petty, so there was no way they were gonna let Willow get away with what she did to them. Stokely tells Willow that he hoped Kris had knocked some sense into her, but it seems he’s talking to someone whose favorite color is the number three.

Stoke will out and say it! Willow is the biggest con artist in AEW history! Every week, Willow walks out here to preach positivity and that smiling will make everything work out. Well, Willow, how has everything worked out for you? Stoke doesn’t think it’s gone well at all. Truth be told, everything Willow has gotten this year has been because of Stoke & Kris. There is an old saying: “I’ve brought you into this world and I can take you out.” Kris says this will never end for Willow. Kris & Stoke storm off, but what more can they possibly do to the Babe with the Power now?

 

Nyla Rose VS Ava Lawless!

The Native Beast is back in AEW, looking to return to the top of the food chain. Will Ava just be an appetizer? Or will “The Hellion” make Nyla lose her appetite?

Ava runs, ducks Nyla’s lariat and wrenches, but Nyla stuffs the STO! Nyla choke grips and CHOKE SLAMS Ava! The fans fire up as Nyla storms around. Ava stands up, Nyla SPLASHES her in the corner!

Nyla fires up, reels Ava back in, for the BEAST BOMB! Cover, Nyla wins!

Ring rust is not a thing with Nyla Rose, and she barely broke a sweat here. Will The Native Beast make ever women’s champion in AEW and ROH her prey?

 

Top Flight w/ Action Andretti VS Anthony Ogogo & Lee Moriarty w/ Shane Taylor!

ROH just saw Darius & Dante Martin team up with Action Andretti to take on Shane Taylor Promotions in full, and that match was won by Shane Taylor Promotions. But now it will be 2v2, will it still be “Rumble, Bad Man, Rumble?” Or can Top Flight take flight to climb up the tag team rankings?

Backstage interview with Deonna Purrazzo.

Lexy Nair is with The Virtuosa and brings up her attack on Thunder Rosa and Rachael Ellering last night on Rampage. Deonna promised that wherever Rosa went, she would follow. Well, that’s not all that she promised. She also promised to burn AEW down to recreate it in her own image, and bring about The Age of The Virtuosa. If that means rearranging Rosa’s anatomy, that is par for the course. Speaking of, donde es La Mera Mera? Rosa steps right in! Rosa says she spoke to her therapist, because it has really bothered her. She is just sick and tired of all this! The running away, the hide ‘n’ seek, everything!

But the one thing that was clear to Rosa, is that she has to wait until the bell rings so that she can beat Deonna straight. Oh, is that what Rosa thinks will happen? She wants a bell to ring so Deonna can beat her in another  standard match? Or maybe in another No Disqualifications match? No, no, no. Why not just save us all the trouble and lie down for Deonna to pin you now. Rosa says Deonna is just so funny. But hey, it’s okay. Deonna has made a lot of enemies here, more than she can believe. Next week on Collision, in Rosa’s home state of Texas, Rosa’s new friends, and some of Deonna’s “acquaintances,” will all watch Rosa break Deonna’s face.

Because next week, it will be a LUMBERJACK MATCH! Deonna says all Rosa does is yap yap yap. Rosa tells Deonna off in Espanol, but will they both be speaking the universal language of an ass kicking next week in Texas?

 

Backstage interview with Nyla Rose.

The Native Beast is in a very good mood as she joins Lexy, and Lexy congratulates her on the win tonight. But Nyla has something to say so the floor is hers. Nyla wants to say she’s doing great! She goes to leave, but then steps back and and says there is one little thing more. You all like wrestling? Then let’s talk about it. A few days, Nyla noticed a little tweet on her Twitter feed, put out by The CEO. Nyla loves the dance, but hey, guess what? Mercedes Mone issued an Open Challenge for Dynamite 250! Little Rock, Arkansas, to anyone except Dr. Britt Baker, DMD. Well, last time Nyla checked, she ain’t a dentist, but she does knock teeth out.

Listen: Nyla has what it takes! She was on the first ever Dynamite, she is a former AEW Women’s World Champion,, she won the first ever Women’s Casino Battle Royal, and is the first woman on the AEW roster to make it to 100 wins total. So next week, Dynamite 250, Nyla may not have ever driven a Mercedes, but she’s damn sure gonna wreck one! SKRRRR~! The Native Beast wants to finally have some gold back around her waist, will she waste Mone to get it?

 

Skye Blue VS Harley Cameron w/ Saraya!

A new look for the Chicago Skye, but her attitude is just as bitter as ever. Meanwhile, The Outcasts’ Aussie of anarchy is as bonkers as ever! With all this talk of championships, who puts themselves in the conversation with a big win here in Calgary?

The bell rings and the two circle. They tie up, Harley and Skye both pull hair, and then they let off. They both dodge the other, Saraya distracts Skye, and Harley rolls Skye up! TWO, Skye kicks Harley low! Skye whips, Harley reverses then runs in to SPLASH! Harley digs her boot into Skye, shrieks as she does, but lets off as the ref counts. Skye snarls and she puts Harley in the corner to return the favor! The ref counts, Skye lets off at 4, then Skye whips corner to corner. Skye runs in, but Harley slips free! Harley ROUNDHOUSES Skye away, goes up and slingshots in to LARIAT! Harley then ELBOWS away on Skye!

Harley rallies the fans, and ELBOWS again! Naughty cover, TWO! Skey flounders but Harley stalks her. Harley pushes Skye, climbs up, and she rains down fists! But Skye slips free, tucks Harley in, and CHEEKY NANDOS! That had some sauce on it! Saraya says Harley is making a mess! Skye BOOTS Harley out of the ring! Saraya gets in Skye’s face again but Harley reels Skye in, RUSSIAN LEG SWEEP! Harley dribbles Skye off the floor, the ref reprimands, and Harley lets off. Harley steps away and Saraya talks trash while Collision goes picture in picture.

Saraya talks trash even though we can’t hear her. Harley CLUBS Skye, pushes her against the apron, and CHOPS! Skye sputters, but she SLAPS Harley back! Harley SMACKS Skye off the apron, pushes her into the ring, then storms in after her. Harley drags Skye up to whip and ELBOW her down! Cover, TWO! Harley stalks Skye to ropes to CHOKE her! The ref counts, Harley lets off, but Harley also argues with the ref so Saraya can fire off knees on Skye! Saraya gets away with all that, then Harley scuffs Skey. Harley stomps Skye, drags her up, but Skye fires body shots! Harley ROCKS Skye, ROCKS Her again, but Skye ROCKS her back!

Skye fires off shots, whips, but Harley reverses. Harley runs Skye over, covers, TWO! Saraya coaches Harley and she looms over Skye. Harley drags Skye up, but Skey fires more body shots. Skye ROCKS Harley again, but Harley ducks ‘n’ dodge! DOUBLE LARIATS take both ladies down, and Collision goes to break.

Collision returns and Skye runs in at the ropes to SHINING WIZARD! She snapmares Harley hard, then runs up. Skye blocks a kick, KNEES Harley, and hits a TWIST ‘N’ SHOUT! Cover, TWO! Saraya is relieved but Skye is frustrated as she stalks Harley. Skye fireman’s carries but Harley fights with elbows. Harley ROCKS Skye, whips her to a corner, but Skye reverses. Skye runs in, but Harley goes up and over to sunset flip! TWO!! Skye escapes, stands up, but Harley wrenches for some SOLE FOOD! Cover, TWO!! Skye survives and Harley is shocked! Saraya says she’s still proud of Harley, though.

Harley drags Skye up but Skye drags her into a cradle! TWO and Harley mule kicks. Harley runs to SHINING WIZARD! Cover, TWO!! Skye survives again and Harley is furious! Saraya asks how Aubrey is a ref when she can’t count right! Harley stalks Skye to ropes, brings her up to CLUB her, then BACK- NO! Skye holds ropes to stop the backstabber, and now jackknife bridge! TWO, and Harley spins Skye to ROCK her again! Skye SUPERKICKS back! Skye fireman’s carries for the T K O! Roll back, into a DRAGON SLEEPER HEAD ‘N’ ARM TRIANGLE! Harley TAPS, Skye wins!

Winner: Skye Blue, by submission

Saraya can’t believe what just happened! But Skye is rising, will she finally be golden for the Summer?

 

Skye Blue speaks.

“You see that? You see that? These b*tches need to start putting some respect on my name! Because I am one of the best here. So maybe just to get it through their heads, I have to beat one of the best on the entire roster. So… Hikaru Shida… the so-called Greatest AEW Women’s World Champ of all time… Next week, I want you one-on-one.” Skye calls out the Shining Samurai, will Shida make Skye put some respect on her name?

 

Orange Cassidy & Kyle O’Reilly VS The Kingdom!

The Conglomeration has been itching for a fight with Roderick Strong, Matt Taven & Mike Bennett, and we’ll be seeing part of that when Mark Briscoe takes on Roddy at Death Before Dishonor. The other two-thirds are in action now, will this be a Violently Squeezed victory for Cassidy & Kyle? Or will Taven & Bennett show us why they’re ROH World Tag Team Champions?

The teams sort out and Kyle starts against Taven. Taven tells Kyle that they’re still friends, he doesn’t wanna do this. Taven tags Bennett, and Bennett circles with Kyle. But then Bennett also gets second thoughts, and he bails out. The Kingdom doesn’t wanna fight their “friend” but the fans chant “WUSSIES! WUSSIES!” So Cassidy tags in to DIVE onto them both! The fans fire up and Cassidy puts Bennett in. Cassidy goes up top, Bennett gets under the jump. Bennett headlocks, Cassidy powers up and out, but Bennett runs him over. Cassidy UP KICKS, Bennett comes back to headlock. Cassidy powers out, ducks down then hurdles.

Taven waistlocks, Cassidy switches and shoves Taven into Bennett. Cassidy then back drops Taven, and has hands up! Bennett runs up but Cassidy blocks the kick. Cassidy spins Bennett, headlocks, but Bennett powers up and out. Cassidy tags Kyle, dodges Bennett, then puts hands in pockets before bailing. Bennett runs around and Kyle KICKS! And KICKS! And whips, to then kitchen sink knee! Bennett sputters, Taven runs in, but Kyle blocks the kick!

Taven apologizes and says he still doesn’t wanna fight. But then he pokes Kyle in the eyes! Taven says that is why he doesn’t wanna do this. But Cassidy runs in to tilt-o-whirl. Taven stops that, suplexes, but gets STUN DOG MILLIONAIRE! Cassidy holds Taven in place so Kyle can AX and SMASH! Bennett stands, blocks a kick, but Kyle rolls to pick the ANKLE LOCK! Bennett endures, reaches out, and he rolls! Taven GAMANGIRIS Kyle, but Cassidy DECKS Taven! Cassidy dodges Bennett, SHOVES him out, then Cassidy DIVES! Direct hit and Bennett hits railing! Cassidy sends Bennet to the apron but Bennett rebounds, BOSTON BAYONET!

Bennett talks smack on Cassidy, goes to the ring, but Kyle catches him for a SLEEPER! Bennett JAWBREAKERS free, then waistlocks. Kyle switches, hops on, SLEEPER BACKPACK! Bennett endures, calls Taven, and they PROTON PACK Kyle down! Cover, Cassidy breaks it! The fans cheer, Taven storms up, and Roddy cheers his team from commentary. Cassidy TOSSES Taven first, though! Then he dodges Bennett to SHOTGUN! But JUST THE TIP hits Cassidy! Kyle storms up, Taven ROCKS him! Taven again apologizes but what’s done is done. Taven runs, into a KNEE! Kyle snapmares Taven, Bennett ROCKS him!

Kyle yoyos in ropes to DOUBLE LARIAT The Kingdom! The fans fire up as all three men are down! Roddy is conflicted as Collision goes picture in picture.

Cassidy crawls on the outside, Taven bails out, leaving Kyle and Bennett in the ring. Kyle and Bennett crawl, hot tags to Taven and Cassidy! Cassidy and Taven fire off fast hands! Taven knees low, whips Cassidy, but Cassidy tumbles up and out to then bump Taven off buckles. Cassidy dribbles Taven off the buckles again and again, pauses, then again! Cassidy goes up the corner but Taven distracts the ref so that Bennett can trip Cassidy up! Roddy smiles as Cassidy falls to the mat. Bennett tag sin, he drags Cassidy up, and Bennett CHOPS! Cassidy sputters, Bennett ROCKS him! And CHOPS him! Cassidy falls, Bennett soaks up the heat.

The fans fire up but Taven drags Cassidy over. Tag to Bennett, they stomp Cassidy, then Bennett CHOPS Cassidy. Cover, TWO! Tag to Taven, The Kingdom mugs Cassidy more, then Taven bumps Cassidy off buckles. Taven digs his boot in, tags to Bennett, then he sends Taven in.

BEACH BREAK for Bennett! Cover, TWO!! Bennett survives and Roddy can’t take it! Roddy hurries to ringside but Cassidy tags Kyle. Cassidy and Kyle watch Bennett get up, but Roddy shouts at “KYYYLE~!”

Roddy tells Kyle he can’t do this to their friends! Kyle says Roddy needs to just back off. The ref tells Roddy to stop, but here’s Ishii!! Ishii YANKS Roddy down, he fires off hands! The fans fire up for the Stone Pitbull, but wait! TRENT BERETTA sneaks in from the crowd side! Trent YANKS Cassidy out, and THROWS him into railing! Trent still hates Cassidy that much! Bennett rolls Kyle up in all the chaos, TWO!! Kyle ROCKS Bennett, Bennett ROLLING ELBOWS back! Bennett reels Kyle in, but Kyle snap suplexes! ARMBAR!! Taven goes up top to FROG SPLASH Kyle! Taven goes back up, tags in, and Bennett has Kyle up! HAIL MARY PILEDRIVER!! Cover, The Kingdom wins!

Winners: The Kingdom, by pinfall

Trent shouts that HE was supposed to win, and he CHOKES Cassidy! Trent vows that they are far from over! As for The Kingdom, they still insist they are Kyle’s friends, despite what they just did to him. And Trent won’t let Cassidy have friends, he PUNTS Kyle in the side! The Kingdom shove Trent back, they apparently are still his friend. Cassidy gets up, and he has a wrench?!? Cassidy CLUBS Trent on the back!! The fans lose their minds over Cassidy showing his dark side! Kyle stops Cassidy from going after The Kingdom, as they’re apparently still his friends, too. Cassidy hears Kyle out, and he puts the wrench down.

But that’s okay, Ishii DOUBLE LARIATS The Kingdom! Ishii stands with his friend in Orange Cassidy, and the fans cheer as The Conglomeration still stands tall. But just how much deeper will the grudge between Cassidy and Trent go after this? Will they have to go All In to finally put it to a rest?


My Thoughts:

A very good episode of Collision, but you could tell this was prerecorded in Calgary, not live. But that’s fine, we got some good post show content from Dynamite here, such as Jarrett meeting with Martha & Oje, and some hype packages for the coming title matches, like Ospreay VS MJF and Swerve VS Danielson. We got a good promo from  Deonna and Rosa to add to what we got on Rampage, but I can’t be sure it was that crucial to have. They could’ve had this for Dynamite 250 to set up the Lumberjack match for Collision and it would’ve been the same. And we got more of “Holo.grm,” aka Hologram, but I cannot tell who this really is behind the mask.

The House of Black but they were still rather vague about what’s gonna happen next. Maybe they wait to see what happens with the Unified Trios Championships. Good squash win for Bang Bang Gang, and really good promo from them, The Fallen Angel and Christian Cage to set up a Trios Championship match. The semantics of it are silly, though. “No Freebird Rule here in AEW! The Bang Bang Gang is stripped! But they’re also right in the title match with The Patriarchy!” A = B = C, Juice IS a Trios Champion and he is helping defend the titles after all. But that said, maybe Patriarchy finds a way to win, House of Black surprisingly gets Buddy Matthews back in time, Patriarchy VS House of Black for the titles at All In.

Great opener from Takeshita VS Billington, and I do like Callis trying to recruit the new Dynamite Kid to his group. FTR coming to the rescue is great, I could see FTR & Billington VS Takeshita, Fletcher & Rush to be Rush’s first match as a member of the Don Callis Family. As such, it feels like Rush will pin Billington, and then maybe we get more FTR VS Don Callis Family feuding through the Summer. Stokely & Kris had a good promo to explain their actions, and we should definitely get an All In blowoff between Kris and Willow. And at the same time, Willow becoming CMLL Women’s World Champion totally refutes their statement that all she has was cuz of them, cuz now she did this on her own!

Nyla Rose of course won her match tonight, but very good promo for her to accept Mone’s Open Challenge. Now, pretty sure Mone finds a way to win, it’ll add to how she’s a tough champion and all. But also, Mone VS Britt will still happen at All In, even if Mone doesn’t want it. I feel like Britt needs to get back in the ring to “earn” the shot, though, because that’s how AEW is supposed to work. Very good tag match from Top Flight VS Ogogo & Moriarty, but it feels rather redundant after we just got Top Flight VS Shane Taylor Promotions just last night on ROH. Maybe we get Shane VS Action 1v1 to complete the set.

Good match from Skye VS Harley, and good win for Skye. Skye calling out Shida was a bold move, not sure if that backfires on her. And very good stuff in the story of The Conglomeration and The Undisputed Kingdom. Roddy VS Castle not being the main event surprised me, but I suppose Roddy was of course going to win. And Briscoe having a promo so at the ready was another indicator this was all prerecorded. Briscoe VS Roddy is going to be awesome stuff for Death Before Dishonor, though. Then Cassidy & Kyle VS Taven & Bennett in the main event was really good, and I was pleasantly surprised by the overbooking.

Roddy keeps talking trash on Ishii so of course Ishii showed up, but then Trent was the biggest surprise. Well, that and Cassidy cracking him with a wrench! I feel like they’re going to have a really hardcore blowoff match at some point, and that monkey wrench is gonna come into play for the finish.

My Score: 8.7/10
