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!

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

Callis and the rest of the family has been banned from ringside, as has Chris Jericho, this must be settled between Sammy and Hobbs! Will there be anything left of Sammy to return home to his wife and daughter? Or will The Book of Hobbs call for no mercy and no remains?

The moment Hobbs hops off the corner, Sammy JUMP KNEES! The bell rings, Sammy runs up to JUMP KNEE again! Hobbs staggers around, but he catches Sammy to TOSS him to a corner!

The fans fire up as Hobbs says one more time!

Hobbs hauls Sammy back up, for a fake out. Hobbs doesn’t do what the fans want him to do, he does what he wants. Hobbs moves the other set of steps around, brings Sammy back up, and Hobbs whips Sammy hard into railing! Hobbs asks Kevin Kelley what he’s going on about but Kevin isn’t sure Hobbs means. Hobbs tells Kevin to stand up so Kevin does, and then Hobbs demands Kevin hand over his belt. His belt? Hobbs tells him again, give over the belt. Kevin gives in and hands said belt over. Hobbs then takes the belt and uses it to LASH Sammy on the back! Fans are torn but Hobbs LASHES Sammy again!

Sammy writhes, Nigel tells Kevin this is his fault. Hobbs winds up, Sammy dodges the belt to SUPERKICK! And SUPERKICK again! Sammy grabs a chair, and he SMACKS Hobbs with it! And then HEADSHOT! Hobbs flounders against railing but the fans fire up as Sammy stalks him. Sammy tosses Hobbs the chair to KICK it into him! Then Sammy cravats, uses the steps, but Hobbs turns the cutter into a TOSS over the railing! Sammy’s leg clips the top, but Hobbs hauls him back up and over! But Sammy slips free, and CUTTERS to the steps!! Sammy gets the belt now and he LASHES Hobbs in return!

Sammy then goes looking under the ring, and he brings out a table! The fans fire up as Sammy sets the table up nearby. Sammy has security move aside, so he can slide that chair off the table and into Hobbs! Sammy then adds another table! If one is good, more must be better! The fans fire up with Sammy as he has those side by side. Hobbs goes to the apron but Sammy climbs up. Sammy aims and leaps, but Hobbs catches him again!! And he SPINEBUSTERS Sammy through the tables!!! All of Springfield, Missouri lose their minds while the ref checks on both men, and Collision goes picture in picture!

Hobbs snarls as he slowly rises up out of the wreckage. Sammy stirs but Hobbs clears out the debris to bring him up. Hobbs HEADBUTTS Sammy and Sammy staggers away. Sammy gets in the ring but Hobbs pursues. Hobbs climbs the corner?! Hobbs then FLYING LARIATS! The Powerhouse proves he can fly, then he covers, TWO!! Sammy survives but Hobbs grinds him into the mat! Hobbs talks trash on Sammy while he fishhooks the nose and pulls on the ear! Hobbs then drags Sammy up, whips him to a corner hard, and Sammy drops to his knees. Hobbs looms over Sammy, eggs him on, and the fans rally up.

Hobbs talks more trash, stands Sammy back up, and Hobbs whips Sammy hard into another corner! Collision returns to single picture as Sammy crawls around. Hobbs looms over Sammy again, slaps him around, and then whips him into another corner! Hobbs runs up, Sammy dodges and Hobbs hits buckles! Sammy uses the corner to help in the torture rack! Fans fire up as Sammy carries Hobbs, and GO TO HOSPITAL!! Cover, TWO?!? Hobbs survives and Sammy is shocked! The fans rally as Sammy hurries to find himself something more. Sammy takes a monitor from the timekeeper!

Sammy brings the equipment into the ring, MONITOR SHOT!! But that’s not enough so Sammy looks around outside. He finds another table! The fans are thunderous as table number three is put in the ring. Sammy hurries after Hobbs but Hobbs LARIATS Sammy inside-out! Hobbs storms around, grabs the table for his own and sets that up near a corner. Hobbs goes back for Sammy as the fans rally up, and Hobbs hauls Sammy up. Sammy JAWBREAKERS back! Hobbs wobbles, but Sammy SUPERKICKS! Hobbs still wobbles, so Sammy springboards and FLYING- NO, Hobbs catches him again! WORLD’S STRONGEST SLAM!! Cover, TWO!!!

Sammy survives and now Hobbs is furious! Hobbs runs to BOOT Sammy down! Hobbs goes out while Sammy flops off the apron. Hobbs looks around under the ring, and he brings out a fourth table! The fans fire up as Hobbs brings this one to the ramp side. Hobbs sets that up, stomps Sammy to keep him down, then he goes to fetch a fifth table! The fans are thunderous, this might be the most tables in a non-table match! Hobbs hauls Sammy up, scoops him, and aims, but Sammy slips free to POST Hobbs first! Sammy fires up again while Hobbs staggers around. Sammy chugs a fan’s beer, then SMASHES Hobbs with the bottle!

The fans fire up as Hobbs ends up on the tables! The fans give Sammy another beer, to SMASH it on Hobbs again! Sammy then goes looking under the ring, and he brings out a LADDER! The fans are loving it, because now we’ve entered TLC territory! Sammy gets that ladder in the ring while the fans lose their minds! Sammy moves table number three outta the way so he can stand his ladder up. And it’s a big ladder! Fans chant “Please Don’t Die!” because this is extra crazy even for Sammy! Sammy climbs to the second highest rung, takes aim, and shoutout to Jeff Hardy! SUPER SWANTON BOMB through the tables!!!

The fans lose their minds all over again as the ref checks Sammy. Sammy gets Hobbs up and into the ring and the fans fire up again. “This is Awesome!” as Sammy takes table number three and sets it back up! Hobbs flounders, Sammy pushes him onto that table and punches him down. Sammy then goes to the corner, which is comparatively short, but Hobbs shoves the ref into Sammy!! Sammy is stuck on the top rope and Hobbs snarls as he storms up after him! Hobbs brings Sammy up for the scoop! WORLD’S STRONGEST SLAM THROUGH THE TABLE!! Cover, Hobbs wins!!

Winner: “Powerhouse” Will Hobbs, by pinfall

All that damage done to Hobbs and he still took the win! Is there no stopping the Don Callis Family with the Powerhouse behind it?

 

The Blackpool Combat Club speaks.

Jon Moxley is with Claudio Castagnoli as he shares a story. “When Claudio first comes to America, he shows up at the gym to train with William Regal and Dave Taylor. When Dave pulls up, Claudio’s sitting on the front step, there’s no cars around. Dave says, ‘How’d you get here?’ Claudio says, ‘I walked.’ Dave says, ‘From the airport? 20+ miles?’ Claudio says, ‘Yeah.'” That was day one. You think 20 minutes is a lot to Claudio? It’s nothing, he’s a freak. Moxley is a freak in a different way, needing to get hit in the face a couple times just to wake up. And while Moxley’s not a sprinter, he can run all day and all night.

You will never win a war of attrition with the BCC. When it’s a game of who can endure, you have no chance. But the BCC don’t get paid by the hour and they don’t wanna wrestle like they do. So time limit draws for them are unsatisfactory. So congrats, FTR, you pissed them off! Good job. But if you wanna challenge them for Revolution, you wanna pay homage to tag team wrestling in one of the wrestling Meccas, Greensboro, North Carolina, they accept. The four of them will show the world that all that history is just that. This is 2024, this is AEW, the BCC are the elite of the elite, and this sport evolves.

Claudio, what’s Moxley thinking of right now? Well, tag team wrestling, Midnight Express, Rock ‘n’ Roll Express, Arn ‘n’ Tully, Crockett Promotions, its entire history. And about FTR, how they look to the past, how they wanna bring back the past. The BCC looks to the future. The BCC creates the style and the wrestling that they wanna see today. So FTR, if you wanna live in the past, fine. But if you wanna step into the future, that path is through them! And all you have to do is just be better than Moxley & Claudio.

Moxley also keeps thinking, that can’t be all that FTR had. Because it feels like they unloaded all their heavy artillery, every magazine, while the BCC barely pulled the trigger. If FTR want to be big names in Greensboro, then they’ll have to swim in deep, deep waters. Claudio tells FTR to bring the whole bag of tricks, because they’ll need it. The match is set, but just how far will both teams go to settle the score?

BCC said FTR live in the past, but they used an old school finisher to win! Cash gets the mic now as the fans chant for FTR, and Cash says, “So a few weeks ago, Jon Moxley said, ‘Step up, and get stepped on.'” The fans boo that, but Cash tells Moxley, FTR is like a couple roaches. It’ll take much more than getting stepped to kill them! The fans cheer that! So that said, if BCC has anything more to say, they know where FTR’s gonna be. Dax tells Moxley & Claudio that he heard everything they had to say. They talked about differing styles and different eras, how FTR are throwbacks and the past is what they care about.

“That’s not what this is about. Moxley, you’ve been here since almost the beginning. For almost five years, you’ve been the king of AEW. This is your castle! This is your house, Mox! And I see you, Mox. And I see Claudio, and I see Bryan. I see you walk around the back, and people cower and they fear and they drop their eyes because they’re afraid of you. I think the reason you’re pissed off is you found a couple guys who ain’t scared of you.” The fans cheer that, too! FTR ain’t scared. But if Moxley is the king and this is his castle, it’s been said that to be a king, you gotta kill a king. So Revolution, FTR comes for the king’s head. #TopGuysOut!

The fans fire up as Dax & Cash are ready to be more elite than the elite of the elite! Will either team be left standing after the Revolution?

Backstage interview with Kris Statlander, Willow Nightingale & Stokely Hathaway.

Renee Paquette is with The Galaxy’s Greatest, The Babe with the Power and #BigStoke, bringing up the “choice words” from Skye Blue & Julia Hart last night on Rampage. What is their reaction? Stokely wants to start by saying he doesn’t appreciate that hostility. What happened last week, he apologized for. Did he put it on social media at like 3AM and then delete it five minutes later? Absolutely! But the past is the past. Stat said it best, they worry about the future, and that includes those two- Willow says think before you speak, Stokely. “Ho…ly cow, you got something to say.”

And Kris points out Skye is always looking for a fight, so maybe, since they’re 1-1, they go 1v1 next week and Kris beats dat ass. This eclectic trio is ready to fight it out, but will they be able to tear down The House of Black?

Backstage interview with Bryan Danielson.

Lexi Nair is with the American Dragon ahead of his main event match tonight against Jun Akiyama. Some consider this a dream match. Bryan says yes, but what Lexi didn’t say and should’ve said is that this the legendary Jun Akiyama. This is a man Bryan respects as one of the greatest wrestlers in history! Someone who is Eddie Kingston’s hero! And Eddie will be on commentary tonight, watching Bryan wrestle one of the greatest wrestlers, and beat him. Bryan vows to defeat the man that is Eddie’s hero. Bryan wants to make it clear, he respects Jun Akiyama and every single thing he has done. But do you know who Bryan does NOT respect? Eddie Kingston.

Bryan says Eddie just made this thing, that their match at Revolution is about a handshake. That if Eddie wins, Bryan has to shake Eddie’s hand and show him respect, and he thinks that’ll kill Bryan inside. And maybe it will. Because Bryan does NOT respect Eddie, and do you know why? Because if Eddie was asked to do a promo, do you know how he’d do it? Lexi’s interviewed him, right? And what would he say? “Oh, the boom! Oh the lights! Oh, you’ve got shoes on! Oh!” Then he’d say this, that and whatever, storm off and that’s it. He is NOT a professional, has NEVER been a professional!

Bryan has known Eddie for 20 YEARS, and Eddie is someone who had more potential than anybody Bryan has ever met, and he WASTED it! WASTED it until just this last year! But not only does Bryan not respect Eddie, Eddie’s waste of potential just pisses Bryan off. That is why Bryan will win against Eddie at Revolution for the Continental Triple Crown. The American Dragon wants to destroy the Mad King, but will he start with the Japanese legend?

The American Dragon survives the Japanese legend, and Eddie says he gives Bryan his due. Eddie’s problem with Bryan was never about his talent, the problem is Bryan’s problem with Eddie. Bryan gives Jun his due by shaking his hand. But then Bryan flips Eddie off! So Jun SLAPS Bryan! Jun doesn’t like the disrespect shown and Bryan apologizes. Bryan offers another handshake, Jun takes it, but Bryan LOW BLOWS Jun! Eddie runs up to TACKLE Bryan! The fans fire up as Eddie punches away on Bryan! The ref reprimands but Eddie doesn’t care, he just keeps hitting Bryan! But then Claudio runs up to tackle Eddie!

The BCC beats Eddie down, but then here comes FTR! Cash & Dax brawl with Claudio & Bryan! The fans fire up as FTR runs the BCC off! BREAKING NEWS via Tony Schiavone! Wednesday Night Dynamite, Six Man Tag: FTR & Eddie VS Bryan, Claudio & Moxley! Will the Top Guys and Mad King finally beat some respect into the BCC?


My Thoughts:

A really good Collision here, lots of good story build for both Revolution and just in general. Great opening match with the No Disqualification match, but I’m surprised Hobbs won after all the stuff Sammy was doing. I mean, that’s good for Hobbs, he really should be winning things. Maybe it’s also to build Hobbs up so that when the Don Callis Family ends up fighting Ospreay & Fletcher, Ospreay & Fletcher are made even bigger deals when they beat Hobbs & Takeshita. Good win for Rosa and really good win for Deeb, both are going strong at perhaps just the right time. Deeb also had a really good promo, both should definitely be challenging for titles after Revolution going towards Double or Nothing.

Great trios match for Bang Bang Scissor Gang, and of course there was a moment of dysfunction where White gets the tag and not Billy. BBSG still wins, but I’m more surprised by Caster losing the flow on his rap. If that was legit, I feel bad for him, but maybe he wrote himself into a corner with “red” and the rhymes being bad (something something head, something something dead). I mean, he did just say he and management argue, maybe he held himself back because he didn’t want Tony Khan upset over blatantly naughty rhymes. And also, despite me wanting them to actually go for more gold, it feels like we’re just a moment away from BBSG breaking up and fighting for all the trios titles.

Great match from Bryan Keith and Malakai Black for the hell of it, and it gives Malakai a solid singles win. When Malakai hasn’t had one of those in awhile, that’s only because he hasn’t had a singles match in a long time. A little surprising Mark Briscoe didn’t get away with his ambush. He could’ve just bailed out when Buddy & Brody showed up but I guess that wouldn’t be in-character for Mark. Maybe Keith will be an ally for Mark against The House of Black since FTR is a bit busy right now. Speaking of which, great tag match of FTR VS STP and of course FTR wins. Good promo from BCC to set up the rematch at Revolution, I feel like they should make a point that the time limit isn’t 20 minutes but I can’t even remember if PPVs have time limits on matches.

And great tie-in of BCC with the main event tonight. Bryan VS Jun was a great match, Eddie was great on commentary because he knew Jun’s moveset and style so he was saying what was coming. Bryan won, of course, adding another Triple Crown Champion to the list since he’s coming after Eddie’s Triple Crown. I had a feeling Bryan was going to disrespect Jun, but it was only because Jun told him to respect Eddie. Great brawl to set up Eddie & FTR VS BCC for Dynamite, that’ll make for a strong go-home going towards Revolution.

My Score: 8.7/10

PLAY BY PLAY

Trios Triple Threat: Private Party & Matt Sydal VS Top Flight & Action Andretti VS Bryan Keith, Komander & Penta El Zero Miedo!

With all the trios titles belonging to the Bang Bang Scissor Gang, many others are trying their hands at the trios game. Will Isiah Kassidy, Marq Quen and the Zen Assassin open their third eyes? Will Dante, Darius & The Sight to See be flying high? Or will the Bounty Hunter, the AAA Cruiserweight Champion and The Man with No Fear steal the spotlight from them all?

In this form of Triple Threat, only two trios are legal at one time, so Action steps up to stare down Sydal. The fans rally up as the two talk some smack, and they circle. They tie up, go around, and Sydal headlocks for a takeover. Action stands up but Sydal hits another takeover. Sydal then snapmares but Action handsprings through! Fans cheer and the two go again. Sydal tilt-o-whirls to RANA, but Action handsprings through again! Action dusts himself off, but Sydal runs up. Action wrenches, CHOPS, and then knuckle locks to go up and up and FLYING ARM-DRAG! Fans fire up as Action DROPKICKS Sydal down!

Action kips up and smiles while Top Flight talks some smack to Private Party. Action then runs and IMPLODER TORNILLOS onto Sydal! Cover, ONE, but Action tags Darius. They double whip Sydal, but Sydal KICKS and KICKS and SOBATS! Fans fire up with Sydal and he gets a “SHOTS! SHOTS! SHOTS!” chant going. Sydal KICKS Darius’ leg over an dover, but Darius catches him to a pump-handle GUTBUSTER! Then GAMANGIRI! Sydal flounders away, Bryan Keith tags in! Keith runs up but Darius headlocks. Keith powers up and out, Darius RAMS him, but Keith rebounds to BOOT! Darius falls, Kassidy tags in!

The fans rally as Zay dodges Keith, fires “SHOTS! SHOTS! SHOTS!” and then ROCKS Keith. Zay whips, Keith reverses, but Zay goes up and Quen tags in. Zay RANAS Keith into Quen’s GAMANGIRI! Then Quen springboards to SPLASH Keith! Cover, TWO! Keith is still in this and he tags out to Penta! The fans fire up as Penta somersaults in, but Quen shows he can somersault, too. The fans rally for “CERO! MIEDO!” Penta tells Quen to listen, CERO! MIEDO! Queen says okay, but “What do we want? SHOTS!” Quen shoves Penta, so Penta takes off the glove. The fans fire up, and Penta makes the pass to Alex Abrahantes!

Penta says again, CERO! MIEDO! Another pie face, but Dante tags in off Quen. Dante shoves Penta but then Komander tags in. Quen jumps on Dante, he and Penta mug him, and then everyone else rushes in! It’s a nine man melee and the ref reprimands them all! Things spill out, Dante and Komander stay in. Dante breaks free to JUMP KNEE, then runs, but Komander dodges! Dante mule kicks, whips, but Komander reverses to hook Dante up, COBRA TWIST, into a tilt-o-whirl RANA! Fans fire up as Dante flounders to a corner. Komander runs corner to corner but Dante dodges! Komander elbows back, then SUPERKICKS!

Dante flounders away, Komander jumps up top, and Komander tightrope walks to ARABIAN PRESS ARM-DRAG! Then a DROPKICK! The fans fire up as Komander covers, TWO! Komander tags Penta before he runs in, but Dante jumps up and over! Penta runs in to SLINGBLADE! And then SLINGBLADE again! Dante staggers up, into a SUPERKICK! Action tags in to springboard, into a SUPERKICK! Private Party sends Darius into barriers! Penta tags Keith, puts Action in a corner, and GAMANGIRIS! Komander runs in, Penta is the step stool for Komander to FLYING FOREARM!

Komander feeds Dante to Keith’s fireman’s carry, USHIGOROSHI! Cover, Zay breaks it! The fans rally, Quen tags in off Keith, and Quen stomps away on Action as Rampage goes picture in picture!

Quen stomps and stomps but the ref counts. Quen lets off to drag Action up and bump him off buckles. Quen runs up to RAM Action, then tags in Zay. Private Party keeps Action trapped, Zay ENZIGIRIS Action down! Zay stomps now, “SHOTS! SHOTS! SHOTS!” Zay lets off to kick-step, then he tags Sydal. They stomp Action, “SHOTS! SHOTS! SHOTS!” Sydal lets off to rally the fans, then he drags Action up. Action throws body shots but Sydal CLUBS him down. Sydal stands Action up again to back suplex, but Action lands out, only for Sydal to HEEL KICK! Tag to Quen and Quen slingshot SENTONS!

Rampage returns to single picture as Quen stomps Action back to the corner. Tag to Zay, Quen snap suplexes Action down for Zay to slingshot SENTON! Zay smirks and then drags Action up. Zay puts Action in the corner, CHOPS, then tags Quen. Private Party double whip Action to ropes, but Action ducks ‘n’ handsprings to DOUBLE BACK ELBOW! The fans fire up as Action and Private Party are all down. Action crawls, Quen grabs at a foot but hot tag to Dante! Dante rallies on Quen, whips, but Quen reveres. Quen runs in at the corner, Dante slips out to the apron and Quen hits buckles. Dante then goes up and around to GAMANGIRI!

Dante springboards to CROSSBODY! Cover, Keith breaks it! Darius runs up to CHOP Keith, but Keith ROCKS Darius! Keith runs, but Darius follows to HOTSHOT BULLDOG! And then GAMANGIRI! Darius steps in, but into a KNEE! Keith runs up to SHOTGUN Darius out of the ring! Keith pursues, but Action is there to go after Keith. Action fires forearms, Dante turns around to see Zay. Zay dodges Dante to then FLY out onto Keith, Darius & Action! Dante whips Sydal up and out but Komander tags in. Komander BOOTS Sydal, Dante BLASTS Penta, and Komander gets Sydal in an APRON ROMERO SPECIAL!

Dante builds speed and he FLIES over those two to wipe out Keith and his own teammates! Komander lets Sydal go, Sydal mule kicks Komander down! Sydal goes up the corner, to APRON METEORA! But Penta’s right there! APRON FEAR FACTOR!! Penta rises but Zay springboards, triangle jump STUNNER! Quen gets in, Zay gives him the boost to go up and up and SUPER SWANTON onto everyone else!! The fans are thunderous and Zay takes a bow. Zay then waits as Quen puts Penta in. Zay puts Penta up top, GAMANGIRIS, and then GIN ‘N’ JUICE DESTROYER!! Penta turned things right around on Private Party!

Keith runs in, Quen BOOTS him first, but Keith roars! Keith RISING HEADBUTTS to send Quen down! Penta sets up as Komander builds speed, BOOSTED TORNILLO onto the cluster outside!! The fans are thunderous again but Sydal rushes Penta! Penta sidesteps, Sydal springboards, but into a SUPERKICK! And then Penta tucks him back in, FEAR FACTOR!! Cover, Penta’s team wins!

Winners: Penta El Zero Miedo, Komander & Bryan Keith, by pinfall

A huge win for this eccentric trio, will they be hunting down The Acclaimed & Daddy Ass? Or will they try for the Bullet Club Gold’s gold instead?

 

BREAKING NEWS for Collision!

After taking a week off for the NBA All-Star Game, Saturday nights are once again good for a fight. Thunder Rosa and Serena Deeb each return to in-ring action, will these two rivals keep pace in the chase for gold? And we just saw Bryan Keith win big in the trios match, but he’ll jump right back into singles action against Malakai Black! Will the Bounty Hunter get another big win in his hunt for opportunity? Or will the Dark Father prove the House Always Wins?

 

Backstage interview with The Outcasts.

Renee Paquette is with Saraya and Harley and isn’t sure how much they’ve been watching Ruby Soho & Angelo Parker, but those two are off on their path of romance. Saraya DGAF about Soho x Parker!! She has things going on, too! That traitor isn’t getting under her skin even a little bit! Harley calms Saraya down, and they do breathing exercises. Why’s Harley flicking her tongue when she does that…? But Saraya wants to talk business. Y’know how her family is big famous wrestling royalty in the UK? Well, see, she has a special announcement. Her brother, “Zodiac” Zak Knight, has just become All Elite!!

Saraya has her brother walk into frame, and yeah, he’s scary, right? Zak could’ve been yours, Ruby! Saraya was gonna set Ruby up with him, “the most eligible bachelor in the Norwich area!” And Ruby messed that up just to be with that greasy, slimy, whatever Parker is! Harley says yeah! Just look at Zak! Isn’t he hot? He’s so hot! The whole Knight family is hot! Saraya is a bit taken aback by that, and she sprays water at Harley. Harley just embraces it so that doesn’t make for a good deterrent anymore… Saraya says it’s okay, Harley’s about to be fixed. But Saraya also promises, “Things are about to get really spicy around here.”

The Outcasts head out, and Zak’s scowl scares Renee a bit. Will Ruby & Parker regret making their romance public?

 

The Young Bucks VS Jonny Lyons & Cappuccino Jones!

Matthew & Nicholas Jackson used, or rather abused, their power as Executive Vice Presidents of AEW to have an AEW World Tag Team Championship match at Revolution. However, they are also very upset at the continued disrespect. Will that really stop after they take their frustrations out on these young indie guys?

The teams sort out and Nick starts against Lyons. Nick doesn’t even bother taking off his trilby (or is it a fedora?) as he circles with Lyons. Nick calls for a knuckle lock but then kicks low and CLUBS away! The fans boo but Nick soaks it up. Nick whips Lyons, Lyons reverses but Matt tags in. Nick hurdles then whips Lyons, Lyons ducks Nick but Matt CLOBBERS him! Matt takes off his suit jacket to then drags Lyons up. Matt TOSSES Lyons to the corner, Lyons tags in Cappuccino! The fans fire up for Cappuccino as he circles with Matt. Matt mockingly applauds, also calls for a knuckle lock, but also kicks low!

Matt CLUBS away on Cappuccino, just like Nick, but then Matt cools off. Matt brings Cappuccino up to throw hands, whips him to ropes, but fakes the superkick to DDT instead! Fans boo but Matt drags Cappuccino up. Matt whips Cappuccino to the corner, he and Nick coordinate to LARIAT GAMANGIRI COMBO! Tag to Nick, he BLASTS Lyons, and then Matt whips Nick in so he can go up and over and PENALTY KICK Lyons! Matt stomps Cappuccino, stands him up, then HOTSHOTS him into Nick’s DISCUS LARIAT! Tag back to Matt and he drags Cappuccino up. The fans rally as hard as they can, but Cappuccino gets the MELTZER DRIVER!! Cover, The Bucks win!

Winners: The Young Bucks, by pinfall

Well, turns out they call that the “Tony Khan Driver” now, seems they don’t care to be associated with the Wrestling Observer anymore. But then they feel disrespected when the ref hesitates to raise their hands? Nick gets the mic to tell Paul Turner that when he raises their hand, what name did he use? Did he really just call him “Nick?” That is disrespectful! Next time, it’s a fine! And Schiavone, please, join them in the ring. Fans boo and Schiavone isn’t sure what to do. But they are EVPs, he doesn’t really have a choice… Schiavone joins the Bucks, and Nick promises they won’t harm him.

Last week, Schiavone was in the ring with them and Nick swears, he tripped on his own shoe, knocked into Schiavone and that is why Schiavone fell over. Nick wants to make it clear, and he apologizes for that. Matt says to show how sorry they are, and how much they love him, they got him a $25 Amazon gift card. They are sorry, Schiavone, but that isn’t the only thing they’re sorry about. See, they’re also sorry that, uh… they can’t get the bloodstains left by Darby Allin & Sting out of their $5,000 suits. Schiavone says yes, that is a problem… Will they rescind the $1,000 fine on them by any chance?

Sorry, no, they can’t do that. But there are a couple things that they won’t be sorry about. The first thing is beating the hell out of Darby for all the trash he talked about them publicly. The second thing, and this is one Schiavone will really like, is them taking Sting and pinning him to the mat, saying goodbye to one of the most legendary careers in all of pro-wrestling! Fans boo but Matt continues to tell “Stinger,” call them Father Time. Because just like time, the Bucks are undefeated. And just like time, the Bucks are coming for Sting! “Now everybody, let’s have a great show! There’s a great line-up on the way!

“Tony’s over there at the desk, he’s one of the best play by play guys in the business! C’mon, everybody! AEW chant on three? One, two, three! A E DUB! A E DUB! Alright, let’s go~!” Matt fist bumps Schiavone, then leaves with Nick. The farce continues, but will there be nothing even Darby & Sting can do about it? Or will the Icon still find a way to retire on top?

 

Tony Schiavone is back in the ring.

Rampage returns and he welcomes a young man who has had a busy year. He’s a brand new father but fighting the Don Callis Family, it’s Sammy Guevara! Tulsa cheers as The Spanish God heads to the ring, back on his feet after the ambush by Will Hobbs. Schiavone shakes hands with Sammy, and Schiavone congratulates Sammy on last week’s win against Jeff Hardy. But now, to the comments Callis had for Sammy just last Wednesday Night Dynamite. The insults he hurled at Sammy, Callis clearly has it out for him.

Sammy says it is a mix of emotions. Last week, he got in the ring with a childhood hero in Jeff Hardy. But on the other hand, he’s pissed off because Hobbs put him through a table! Sammy tells Hobbs that Sammy always knew Hobbs had endless potential, and superstardom written all over him. But he can do that all on his own! Hobbs doesn’t need Callis sucking the life out of Hobbs’ career! Hobbs is a star all on his own, but it’s too late now for him to figure that out because he’s pissed Sammy off. So enough talk! Get your ass out here so they can fight! The Don Callis Family music plays, but it’s only Callis walking out here.

Callis has a mic to taunt Sammy, “Look, everybody! It’s Mr. Mom! You’re back at work after nursing the child. I mean, the only thing you’ve done of any note in the last six months is reproduce, and you shouldn’t be proud of that. Dogs do it. Even these people can do it!” Fans boo but Callis says Sammy used to be a great athlete. He used to be a guy Callis wanted in the Family. But now, Sammy has become like so many others: a weak, pathetic little cuck! Sammy doesn’t get what Callis is doing repeating himself, but then HOBBS gets in from the crowd side! Sammy dodges, SUPERKICKS, and Hobbs bails out!

Sammy eggs Hobbs on, then builds speed, to FLY! Direct hit and down goes Hobbs! Sammy says bang bang, and he gets a chair! Sammy winds up to SMACK Hobbs on the back! Hobbs hobbles but gets in the ring. Sammy pursues, aims again, and he JAMS Hobbs low! Then SMACKS him on the back! Sammy throws off the jacket, waits on Hobbs to turn around, but Hobbs fights off the torture rack to LARIAT Sammy inside out!! Callis smiles as he tells Hobbs to end this! SPINEBUSTER! And then another SPINEBUSTER! Hobbs is gonna do Sammy like he did Jericho! Hobbs hauls Sammy up, scoops and WORLD’S STRONGEST SLAM!!

Hobbs stands over Sammy and Callis applauds. The Powerhouse has all but pulverized Sammy, and Callis even gets his shots in! Will the Don Callis Family make sure there’s nothing left of Sammy to go home to his wife and daughter by the end of this?

 

Skye Blue speaks.

“I had that match. I had it won, if it wasn’t for that bald headed, sad, poor excuse of a man, I would’ve had it and I deserved it. I had that win and I deserved it, on my own.” Julia Hart calms her down and says it’s okay. They will have their comeuppance. And while seeking their revenge, they will dig three graves: one for Willow, for Kris, and for Stokely. But who does Skye want first? Whoever will step up. Whoever has the balls enough to step up and fight her! Will the Chicago Skye continue to darken until she blots out the light?

 

Mariah May VS Anna Jay!

Toni Storm’s superfan still wants to prove herself to her hero, but that really depends on if Storm is even watching this. Will Mariah finally have Storm’s approval? Or will the Queenslayer still be the Star of the Show?

The bell rings and the two circle. The fans rally, the two tie up, and they go along the ropes. They end up in a corner, get out of a corner, and Mariah pulls hair. The ref counts, Mariah lets off and shoves Anna, but Anna doesn’t budge! Anna smirks as she and Mariah rest and tie up. Anna waistlocks, shoves, but Mariah slides to sweep the legs! Mariah runs but Anna dodges the dropkick! Anna runs to BLOCKBUSTER! Anna then ROCKS Mariah, whips her, but Mariah reverses to ROCK Anna! Mariah bumps Anna off buckles, then puts some stank on the DOUBLE CHOP! Mariah brings Anna around to bump off buckles, and CHOP again!

Mariah eggs Anna on so Anna CHOPS! Mariah CHOPS! Mariah bumps Anna off buckles, then digs her boot in as Rampage goes picture in picture!

The ref counts, Mariah lets off at 4, and she brings Anna into ropes to hook her up. The ref counts as Mariah chinlocks Anna against ropes, but she lets off at 4. Mariah kisses Anna on the cheek, then runs to DROPKICK Anna in the back! Anna falls out of the ropes and Mariah soaks up the heat. Mariah stands Anna up, runs, and SHOTGUNS her down! Anna flounders out of the ring and Mariah takes a bow. Mariah then goes out to stalk Anna, and she brings Anna around the way. Mariah puts Anna against barriers to CHOP her! And SPANK her! Mariah laughs while Anna hobbles away. Mariah pursues to then CHOP again!

Anna is stinging while Mariah dusts herself off. Mariah hears the count but she whips Anna into the barriers first! Mariah then leaves Anna behind and “apologizes” to the ref. Mariah goes back out after Anna, soaks up the heat, and vogues for the camera. But Anna throws body shots and CHOPS! And CHOPS! Mariah CHOPS back! Mariah pushes Anna into the ring, takes her time posing before going back in, and Rampage goes to break.

Rampage returns as Anna whips Mariah to a corner. Mariah slips out to the apron, avoids Anna’s haymaker, and ROUNDHOUSES in return! Anna staggers, Mariah shouts and climbs up, but Anna ROCKS her! Anna then gets space, runs up, and HEEL KICKS! Anna then wrenches the arms, ICONOCLASM! Cover, TWO! Anna grows frustrated but she drags Mariah up and hooks the arms. Mariah blocks the Gory Especial to backslide hard, TWO! Anna sits up, into a KNEE THRUST! Mariah says it’s time to end this, and she hauls Anna back up. Fireman’s carry, but Anna slips free! QUEENSLAYER!!

Anna hops on as a backpack, but Mariah RAMS her into buckles! Mariah is free, and she puts Anna up top. Mariah DOUBLE CHOPS, then gets some space. Mariah runs up to STRATUSPHERE! Anna flounders away and Mariah shouts out Storm! Mariah runs up, but the hip attack misses! Anna runs up to kick, dragon sleeper, and BACKSTABBER! Cover, TWO?!? Mariah survives and Anna grows frustrated! The fans rally as Anna sits Mariah up, into the QUEEN- NO, Mariah blocks the sleeper! Anna fights through to have the QUEENSLAYER! Mariah flails, reaches out, but she BITES Anna’s arm!!

The ref reprimands but Mariah is free all the same! Fireman’s carry, MAYDAY DRIVER!! Cover, Mariah wins!

Winner: Mariah May, by pinfall

One thing is for sure, Mariah is just as looney as her role model! Will she follow in Storm’s footsteps to become a champion in AEW?

 

Backstage interview with Ruby Soho & Angelo Parker.

Renee is with the lovey-dovey couple, how’d the date go? Ruby says she felt it went really well. Parker is relieved, he didn’t wanna say it first and be wrong. It was incredible, everything he hoped it’d be, he had a great time. Renee points out that in the opposite direction, Saraya is becoming unraveled. If they didn’t hear her comments earlier, she had some rather choice words. And apparently, she was going to hook Ruby up with her brother? Ruby says that’s weird and Renee agrees. Plus, Zak is more like a poor man’s Tom Hardy, big pass. Parker isn’t sure being Norwich’s Most Eligible Bachelor is a bad of honor, either. And honestly, “wrestling royalty?” That’s a stretch.

Ruby tells Saraya that she said she doesn’t care, that Ruby doesn’t get under her skin, but here’s the reality: for the last year, Saraya told Ruby that Ruby needed Saraya, when it was really the other way around. Saraya is sad and unhappy without Ruby. And say all you want about Ruby, but talk bad on Parker and that’s when they have problems. Ruby said she needed space, and in that space, she found something real. And Saraya may be sick of hearing it, of seeing it, but hey, why not invite everyone along? Bring the cameras, bring the crew, and they’ll shove this right down Saraya’s throat!

Parker’s pretty fired up. He says Ruby’s hot when she’s mad. Ruby thanks him for the compliment, and the two head out to get some drinks. Will they make Saraya so sick of love she’ll never dare speak their names again?

 

Roderick Strong w/ The Undisputed Kingdom VS Jake Hager w/ Hornsby!

The Undisputed Kingdom were bullying Orange Cassidy, and apparently the Big Hurt didn’t like seeing that. Will Oklahoma’s own break the Savior of the Backbreaker? Or will Roddy be too strong even for the All-American Sooner?

The bell rings and the fans rally for Hager and Hornsby. Roddy and Hager circle, tie up, and Hager powers Roddy to a corner. Roddy slips free, shoves Hager, and fans boo. The two reset, they circle again, and Roddy gets around to waistlock. Roddy then turns Hager around to CHOP, but Hager doesn’t budge! Fans fire up and Roddy is a bit scared, so Roddy bails out. The Kingdom pep talk Roddy while the ring count climbs. Roddy hurries in, dodges Hager, then things speed up. Roddy leaps but Hager catches him! Hager puts Roddy in a corner, runs up but into a BOOT! Roddy CHOPS, but Hager catches it?!

Fans fire up as Hager TOSSES Roddy, then CHOPS him! And CHOPS him again! Hager whips corner to corner hard, runs up, but Rodd bails out again! Hager snarls, goes out after Roddy, and stalks him around the way. Matt Menard’s on commentary, he says watch out for “these bozos,” Taven & Bennett. Hager stares them down as he walks past, then fires off on Roddy! Roddy tumbles, Hager puts him in the ring, but Roddy KICKS Hager in the ropes! Roddy CLUBS away on Hager, then tells Tulsa to shut up! Roddy runs, but into a BOOT! Hager storms up, puts Roddy in a corner, and then TOSSES him across the ring!

The fans fire up as Hager LARIATS Roddy down! Cover, TWO! Roddy stays in this but Hager digs his knees into Roddy! Roddy flails and reaches out but Hager traps the arms. The ref counts as that knee gets a bit high on the chest and into the neck area. Hager lets off, but he puts Roddy in a corner to fire off body shots! Roddy staggers away as Rampage goes picture in picture.

Hornsby cheers Hager on as he clotheslines Roddy in the corner! Hager ROCKS Roddy while talking trash to The Kingdom, then he hauls Roddy up top. Hager climbs, brings Roddy up, but Roddy clubs at Hager’s leg. Roddy throws body shots, slips underneath, and then kicks the legs out! Hager ends up stuck in the ropes, and Roddy runs to STRONG KNEE him in the back! Hager falls and Roddy stomps a mudhole in! The ref counts, Roddy lets off to flex, but only The Kingdom cheers him on. Roddy stands on Hager in the corner, lets off as the ref counts, but then he springboard stomps Hager down!

Roddy gets the legs and has Hager in ropes, for the ROPE GUILLOTINE! Hager sputters, Roddy covers, TWO! Roddy keeps Hager down by dropping knees, then he digs a knee into Hager’s back. Roddy has the chinlock but Hager endures and fights up. The fans rally, Hager throws body shots, and then Hager runs, but into a DROPKICK! Roddy hurries to cover, TWO! Roddy drags Hager from ropes, stomps him, then paces around while The Kingdom talks trash on Hager. Roddy glares at Hornsby but Hornsby dares him to do something! Roddy goes back to Hager to rain down fists! Roddy then lets off to put Hager in a corner.

Taven seems to be talking trash on Hornsby, probably calling him a Melvin like does everyone. Roddy stands Hager up to CHOP! And CHOP! And then he scoops to BACKBREAKER! Cover, TWO! Roddy keeps Hager down with another chinlock, again digging in a knee. Hager endures, fights up, and Rampage returns to single picture. Hager throws body shots and is free, but Roddy CLUBS, KNEES and runs, but into a lift! Roddy sunset flips, Hager stays up and he drags Roddy up to TOSS to a corner! Roddy BOOTS, ENZIGIRIS and then OLYMPIC SLAMS! Cover, TWO! Roddy grows frustrated as Hager stays in this.

Hornsby smacks the steel steps to rally the fans, and now Bennett glares at him. And then Taven comes in from the other side, Hornsby realizes he’s in a 2v1 situation here. Hornsby wants them to calm down, but then he pulls out a SUPER CONFETTI POPPER! It goes off and Hornsby says take that! The Kingdom still storms up on him, but here comes Orange Cassidy! The AEW International Champion is returning the favor to Hager by helping out his buddy. The Kingdom says fine, bring it then! Cassidy says hold on, he has THE HAT! He throws the purple bucket hat into Hager, and Hager loves that hat!

Cassidy then dodges Taven, shoves him into Bennett, and down they go! Cassidy rains down fists, and Hager powers up with the hat!! Roddy runs up but Hager LARIATS! And LARIATS! And OVERHEAD BELLY2BELLY SUPLEXES! The fans are thunderous as Hager says, “I like this hat!!” Then Hager runs corner to corner, goes up and up, and hits the HAGER BOMB! Cover, TWO!! Roddy survives but Hager snarls! But Taven sends Cassidy into railing! The 2v1 has gotten the better of Cassidy, and Roddy JAWBREAKERS Hager! Hager staggers, Roddy storms up, OLYMP- NO, Hager slips free to GUT RWENCH BOMB!! Cover, TWO!!

Roddy survives, but Hager has the ANKLE LOCK!! Roddy flails, rolls over, and he kicks from below! Hager still holds on, ANKLE LOCK! Roddy flails, reaches out, but Taven throws Cassidy into the ring! The ref is distracted by that, Taven & Bennett get on the apron but Hager CLOBBERS them both! Roddy STRONG KNEES!! Hager falls, Roddy covers, Roddy wins!

Winner: Roderick Strong, by pinfall

Despite having back-up and the power-up, Hager still couldn’t beat the numbers game! Roddy is rolling towards Revolution, will he be taking the International title away from Cassidy?


My Thoughts:

A very good Rampage that was again booked to have story. The Bucks of course won their match, but they did what I was hoping they’d do in changing up their style. They purposefully didn’t use superkicks, and then they are apparently changing up the names of their finishers as if to say Heel Bucks don’t care about their YouTube show or Dave Meltzer. Their post match promo was good, too, but it didn’t really add too much more to the heat they’ve already got. And pretty good promos out of this Ruby VS Saraya story. I thought Ruby VS Saraya was just going to be the thing, but now it feels like they might give us a Mixed Tag of Ruby & Parker VS Saraya & Zak.

Really good Trios Triple Threat to open, and I love that it was Keith, Komander & Penta winning rather than taking a loss to the established-ish trios. The feud of Private Party and Top Flight really needs to be settled by just those teams anyway. Pretty good promo from Sammy Guevara to call out the Don Callis Family, but of course it turned into Hobbs beating Sammy up. Good promo from Skye and Julia, I really thought AEW would’ve figured out a contender to the TBS Championship by now, but maybe that’ll happen very quickly in the next week. Really good match from Mariah May and Anna Jay, and a really good win for Mariah. But you can bet Storm didn’t pay attention to this at all, just like the other times.

And very good main event from Hager VS Roddy, with The Kingdom of course overbooking this. The bit with Hornsby was fun, and Cassidy showing up was also a logical move. I like that Hager’s hat is now the same as Cassidy putting hands in his pockets, but of course Hager lost out. Roddy needs momentum going into the title match so he had to win this one, and he probably just waits it out while Cassidy gets worn down. But at this point, it’ll probably still take a lot of cheating for Roddy to win the International title and bring it into The Undisputed Kingdom.

My Score: 8.7/10
