Jon Moxley VS Dax Harwood!

The Blackpool Combat Club has been daring people to step up, and FTR did just that! They brawled on Collision and now The Maniac and #DaxTheAx battle here on Dynamite. Will Moxley prove the BCC are the elite of All Elite Wrestling? Or will Dax show everyone that FTR are still the #TopGuys?

The bell rings and the fans rally up for “FTR! FTR!” Dax stares down Mox, they circle and feel things out, and the fans start dueling. Dax and Mox still circle, tie up, and go around. Dax puts Mox in a corner, Mox turns that around, and the ref counts. The two scrap and let off, then Mox flips Dax off. Dax smirks, resets with Mox, and Dax headlocks. Mox gets free but Dax gets around to shove Mox, and then Dax flips Mox off! Fans fire up as the two reset, tie up, and go around again. Mox puts Dax in a corner, then goes up to taunt Dax. Then Mox kisses Dax on the cheek! Happy Valentine’s Day!

Mox then dares Dax to hit him, so Dax gives him a kiss! Dax fires off forearms and CHOPS then just HAMMERS away in the corner! The ref counts, Mox shoves Dax away then kicks low.

Mox powers up and out but Dax runs him over! Things speed up, Dax slides under, but Mox gets around to SLEEPER! Dax flails and reaches out but Mox shifts to the BULLY CHOKE! Dax endures, the fans duel, and Dax shifts to roll Mox up, TWO!

Dax steps through the legs! Mox fights Dax off with kicks from below! Dax falls back, Mox storms up to clothesline Dax up and out! Dax tumbles to the floor and fans fire up again. Moxley storms out after Dax, brings Dax up and claws the eyes! Then Mox RAMS Dax into the railing! Dax tumbles up and over, Mox soaks up the heat from fans, then he grabs a chair.

Dax suplexes but Mox blocks! Mox and Dax go to ropes, Dax suplexes Mox and himself up and out of the ring! They hit apron and then the floor while Dynamite goes picture in picture!

The ref checks both Moxley and Dax, they’re both somehow okay to continue. Dax and Moxley slowly rise, Moxley getting to his feet first. Moxley staggers around, Dax slowly stands, and both men jump in at 9 of 10! The fans cheer as both men go forehead to forehead. They stand up and go haymaker for haymaker! Dax staggers, but he comes back to ROCK Moxl! Mox ROCKS Dax! They go back and forth with shots, faster and faster, then Mox trips Dax to a FIGURE FOUR LEGLOCK! The fans fire up and Dax endures! Dax reaches out, punches at Moxley’s legs, but Mox puts on more pressure! Dax falls back, it’s a cover! TWO!!

Dax reaches out, and he CLAWS Moxley’s face! The ref reprimands but Mox lets Dax go. Mox KICKS Dax’s leg out, then steps through, to an INDIAN DEATHLOCK! Dax endures again, and he CHOPS! And CHOPS! And CHOPS! Moxley CLAWS Dax’s face! The ref reprimands, Moxley lets off to sit up and rain down forearms! Dax endures, still in the deathlock, but then Moxley shifts to a cover, TWO!

The shots go fast and furious and then both men wobble! They DOUBLE SLAP and they both fall back! The fans fire up again, and Moxley finds his way to a corner.

Then he DECKS Dax to the mat! Mox says hook ’em horns for Texas, and then adjusts up top. But Dax springs right up to ROCK Mox! Dax climbs to the very top, brings Moxley up to join him, for the SUPER DUPER PLEX!

The fans are thunderous while both men are down! A standing count begins, both men stir at 4 of 10. They head for each other at 5, and they junkyard dog headbutt! They ram again and again, then stand up for Moxley to kick, forearm and KICK! Dax staggers Mox ROCKS him then whips him, but Dax reverses to wrench and short arm LARIAT! But Moxley stays up! Dax LARIATS again, and again, but Moxley dodges to LARIAT! Dax stays up! Dax LARIATS Mox down! But Mox juts rises up! Dax dodges the lariat to go for the arm but Mox rolls! Dax uses that to step through, SHARPSHOOTER!!

The fans are thunderous as we hit the five minute warning!! Moxley flails, endures as Dax sits deep, and Moxley fights. Mox turns over, kicks Dax away, then gets the arms for DRAGON STOMPS!

Moxley thrashes Dax around, Dax taps! Mox wins!!

Winner: Jon Moxley, by submission

But Moxley isn’t letting go! The ref tells him to stop, and then Cash Wheeler rushes out here! Cash punches away on Moxley, but Claudio CLOBBERS Cash! Claudio CLUBS Cash, reels him in, NEUTRALIZER!! The fans are torn as the BCC shows no respect to FTR! Moxley then gets Dax back in the REAR NAKED CHOKE! And Claudio puts Cash in a CROSSFACE! Cash endures and Dax fades out! BCC lets FTR go, showing no mercy. Will they do the same to all teams that stand in their way and the top spots in AEW?

 

BREAKING NEWS for Blackpool Combat Club!

With all of the AEW VS CMLL action, especially between the BCC and the luchadores, that on March 29th, Moxley, Claudio, Bryan and even Wheeler Yuta are going down to Arena Mexico to battle Mistico, Volador Jr, Blue Panther y Ultimo Guerrero in an 8 Man Tag! Will AEW return the favor with a win South of the border?

 

Backstage interview with The Don Callis Family.

Renee Paquette is with Konosuke Takeshita, “Powerhouse” Will Hobbs, and Don Callis himself as she notes Takeshita’s incredible roll. He beat Darby Allin, has two wins on Kenny Omega, and then did the unthinkable: He tapped Chris Jericho out with Jericho’s own move, the Walls of Jericho. What is next for the DCF now? Callis says they’re a victim of their own success! No one wants to wrestle Takeshita, Takeshita is the best rope to rope wrestler in the world. No one wants to wrestle Hobbs, either! The DCF has all the talent, and Revolution is coming. The best wrestler in the world needs to be on that PPV! The DCF needs to be on that PPV!

But they can’t find the talent for Takeshita, so Callis realized, he’s got all the talent right here! He looked within the family, and will give us a match that will have us all talking not just for years, but for decades! It will be DCF VS DCF when we see Konosuke Takeshita VS… Will Ospreay! Wait, Callis is willingly pitting “family members” against each other? Well, when Callis was growing up, Papa Callis would have a few drinks late at night, then make Don and his brothers fight in the backyard, every thing was fine with them. But the best part of this is that no matter what, the Don Callis Family wins.

And at the end of Revolution, no one will be talking about Sting! Everyone will be talking about Hobbs, Takeshita, Ospreay, Fletcher and the Don Callis Family’s Match of the Decade! A huge move by the malevolent mastermind, but will Ospreay appreciate this big money move by Callis?

 

Wardlow VS Barrett Brown!

The Undisputed Kingdom’s War Dog continues his warpath up the ranks, and surely has one eye on the AEW World Championship Triple Threat that’s looming. Will the Maestro of Mayhem have a symphony waiting for the winner on the other side of Revolution? Or will one of Austin, Texas’ own catch him off guard?

Adam Cole is on commentary for this, wanting to keep an eye on his Kingdom’s war machine. The bell rings and the fans chant for “WARD~LOW! WARD~LOW!” Wardlow stares Brown down, Brown storms up but Wardlow then powers him to a corner! Wardlow glares at Brown, the ref counts, so Wardlow drags Brown out to haul him right up top! WAR HAMMER already!! Wardlow grins and flexes while the ref checks. Wardlow admires himself on the tron and Cole smiles, and somehow Brown is still conscious! Cole says let’s wrap this up, so Wardlow gets Brown up, for a LAST RIDE!! Cover, Wardlow wins!

Winner: Wardlow, by pinfall

Cole says it was a pleasure to talk with everyone, though he barely said a thing. Wardlow scrapes Brown out of the ring, will he have his hands on gold soon enough?

 

AEW shares footage of The Young Bucks arriving earlier today.

And despite it being an entire week since their heinous attack on Sting & Darby Allin, Matthew & Nicholas Jackson still wear the blood-stained suits! They said it’s a lovely day, and they’re ready to get to work. But will Darius & Dante Martin humble the arrogant EVPs on the road to Revolution?

 

AEW TNT Championship #1 Contender’s Match: Adam “Edge” Copeland VS Daniel Garcia!

Though Christian Cage would never admit to it, it’s clear he fears both men in this match. The Patriarchy had to cheat to beat the living legend, and then they lost to the Red Death. Will Revolution get Rated R when Edge comes back for revenge? Or will Garcia prove he is the greatest wrestler of his generation by defeating one of the greatest of all time?

“Daddy Magic” Matthew Menard is on commentary to support Garcia. The bell rings and the fans rally up as the two circle. They feel things out, knuckle lock, then Edge ROCKS Garcia with a forearm! Edge KNEES Garcia to ropes, fires more forearms, then bumps Garcia off buckles. Edge fires more forearms, but lets off as the ref counts. The fans rally for “DANNY! DANNY!” and “ADAM! ADAM!” Edge wrenches and WRINGS Garcia’s arm out, and Garcia writhes. Edge clamps on the CROSSFACE but Garcia rolls it to a cover! ONE, so Garcia rolls and has a leg! ANKLE LOCK! Edge flails and scrambles to the ROPEBREAK!

Garcia lets go, Edge of course knows a lot about taking an Ankle Lock. The fans rally as the two reset and circle again. They tie up then fire forearms! Edge headlocks, Garcia body shots and powers free, only for Edge to run him over! Things speed up, Garcia hurdles, but Edge SPLASHES on the dropdown! Cover, TWO! Garcia kicks at Edge so Edge KICKS Garcia in the side! Edge stalks Garcia to a corner, then CHOKES him on ropes! The ref counts, Edge lets off, and the fans continue to duel. Edge drags Garcia up, headlocks, but Garcia wrenches out to elbow low. Garcia headlocks, Edge powers out, and Edge runs Garcia over again!

Things keep moving, Garcia drops down then hurdles again. Garcia drops down again, but avoids the splash! Garcia has the Oklahoma Roll, TWO! Garcia sweeps the legs and covers, ONE! Edge runs into a drop toehold, and Garcia uses that to hook the leg! Garcia then hooks up both legs, CLUBS Edge on the back, then does his dance! Then he STOMPS both knees! Edge writhes, but Garcia drags Edge up to fire forearms. Garcia CHOPS Edge to a corner, whips him corner to corner, but Edge reverses. Edge runs up but into a BOOT! Garcia hops up the corner to body scissor and he fires off elbow after elbow!

Edge wobbles, Garcia goes up again, and CROSSBODIES, but into Edge’s arms! Edge shifts to SHOULDER BREAKER! Garcia writhes while the fans fire up, and Edge drags Garcia back up. Edge whips Garcia hard into buckles, and Garcia falls back as Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Edge rises, has the ref move aside, and he runs to baseball slide dropkick Garcia outta the ring! Edge rests, does a backstroke, then mocks Garcia’s dance! Edge adds his own bit to it, then fetches Garcia. But Garcia fires off haymakers! Garcia whips, Edge reverses and Garcia is sent into steel steps! Edge stares Menard down, stalks Garcia, and Edge waves hi to fans in the front row. Edge has them move aside as he stands Garcia up and pushes him against railing! The ref reprimands as Edge fishhooks Garcia’s mouth! Edge lets off at 4 then soaks up the cheers and jeers. Edge borrows a fan’s sunglasses, then BREAKS them!?

Edge drags Garcia up, puts him in the ring, and then watches Garcia sit up. Edge runs up to KNEE Garcia in the back! Garcia writhes, but Edge slaps him around. Edge clamps on a chinbar armlock combo but Garcia endures. The fans rally, and Edge pushes that forearm into Garcia’s face. Garcia fights up, pries at the hold, then bounces to pop free! Dynamite returns to single picture as Garcia fires hands, but Edge BOOTS Garcia down! Edge stalks Garcia to a corner, puts him in a drop zone, and then goes up top. But Garcia rises to go after Edge! Edge and Garcia scrap as Garcia climbs, and Edge HOTSHOTS Garcia down!

The fans are torn as Edge storms his way back up the corner. But Garcia springs back up to trip Edge! Edge is stuck up top, and the fans fire up as Garcia goes after him! Garcia has a leg, SUPER DRAGON SCREW! Edge clutches his knee and the fans are thunderous as Garcia rises. Garcia fires hands on Edge, backs Edge down with shot after shot, then stomps away in the corner! The ref counts, Garcia digs his boots in, but still lets off so he can run side to side, BOOT WASH! Garcia drags Edge up but Edge fights the saido! Garcia still tries, but Edge CLUBS him! So Garcia gets the leg! DRAGON SCREW, and then a KNEE JAMMER!

The fans fire up and Garcia snarls as he looms over Edge. Garcia gets the bad leg, and drops an elbow right on the knee! And then another elbow on the knee! But Edge shifts around to go after an arm! FUJIWARA ARMBAR! But Garcia powers that to get an STF!! Another move Edge has felt in the past, and he reaches out! Garcia crabs an arm, half nelson modification! Edge still fights, headlocks out of the nelson, and then facelocks. Edge brings Garcia up, but Garcia wrenches out! Edge CLUBS away on Garcia but Garcia hits back! They brawl, the fans fire up, and Garcia kicks the bad leg! Garcia grabs it but Edge throws hands!

Garcia INVERTED DRAGON SCREWS the leg! The different direction catches Edge, and the fans fire up again! Garcia goes up a corner as Edge rises up. Edge hurries to CLUB Garcia! Edge climbs up but the bad leg slows him down. Garcia fires hands on that leg but Edge fires hands on Garcia’s back! Edge brings Garcia up, SUPER IMPALER!! Garcia writhes but Edge can’t make the cover! Edge crawls to a corner, rises up again, and the fans are thunderous! Edge aims as Garcia rises, and he runs in to- KNEE!! Garcia jackknife bridges, TWO!!! Edge escapes, scrambles to get Garcia’s arm, CROSSFACE!!

Garcia endures, reaches out, but NICK WAYNE ATTACKS! Killswitch/Luchasaurus is there with him, The Patriarch just screwed this whole thing up!! Nick stomps Garcia, Killswitchasaurus BOOTS Edge down! The fans boo as The Patriarchy mugs Garcia, with Christian Cage & “Mother” Shayna Wayne walking down the ramp. Captain Charisma saunters his way around the ring while fans boo as hard as they can, then he goes looking under the ring. Christian brings out two chairs! But Daddy Magic says NO! He takes a chair, now he and Christian have a standoff! But Luchasaurus CLOBBERS Menard from behind!

Fans boo again and Christian says that’s what Menard gets. The chairs are brought into the ring, Luchasaurus hauls Garcia up, JURASSIC CHOKE SLAM! Fans boo but then Nick drags Garcia onto a chair! Christian has the other, but then Edge gets in with a chair of his own! Edge JAMS Nick, JAMS Luchasaurus, then SMACKS Luchasaurus down! Edge and Christian have a showdown, the chairs CLASH and Christian is disarmed! Garcia gets to safety as Edge storms up on Christian! But Shayna LOW BLOWS Edge!! The fans boo but now Christian stomps away on Edge! Christian feeds Edge to WAYNE’S WORLD!

Luchasaurus hauls Edge up, EXTINCTION LARIAT! Fans chant, “Christian Sucks!” but he just smiles as he now sets Edge up on a chair! And he gets the other chair, tells Edge this is what he gets for still pursuing him, and then takes aim! CON-CHAIR-TO!!! The Patriarchy stand over the Rated R Superstar and Christian raises the TNT Championship. What lows won’t Christian sink to in order to hold onto that belt?

 

Samoa Joe is here!

The fans fire up for the AEW World Champion as he makes his way to the ring, ready for the face-to-face-to-face with his two challengers. The fans chant for “JOE! JOE! JOE!” as he gets the mic. “My name is Samoa Joe, and I stand here proudly your AEW World Champion.” The fans cheer that, and Joe says tonight he comes with the spirit of apology. When he became champion, he reenacted the ranking system to make sure that only the very best victims were served up in front of him to destroy and continue his championship reign. “And everything was going so well, until last week when Hangman Adam Page and Swerve Strickland came out here, battled tooth and nail for 30 minutes, to a draw.”

Fans boo the draw, and Joe says somehow, someway, he thought the Championship Committee would kick those two to the back of the line. But no, they took a page out of the Texas playbook to make this match bigger and dumber. Fans are a little torn on that line, but Joe says it seems we reward mediocrity around here. And instead of telling those pretenders they don’t deserve to be contenders, now at Revolution, Joe finds himself in a Triple Threat. “Obviously a crime has been committed against me, and now there must be repercussions. So I guarantee you this: You send your two bright stars into the ring with me, and I guarantee I am hurting one, if not both of them! So they may walk in, but I guarantee they will both limp out.”

The fans fire up for that! Joe says that he stands here the AEW World Champion, and there is nothing anyone can do about that. But then “Whose House?” “SWERVE’S HOUSE!” The fans fire up as Prince Nana leads the way for The Realest, doing his dance. Swerve already has a mic, and he steps into the ring. The fans chant, “Whose House?” “SWERVE’S HOUSE!” Swerve tells Joe, “When we started this whole thing, like I said, this wasn’t supposed to be personal, right? But as we inch closer and closer to Revolution, and the more that you run your mouth, I can’t help but get the feeling it’s becoming personal.”

Swerve tells Joe that when Joe won the title, Joe said… The fans cheer as Swerve seems to need a second to think. Swerve then says Joe said that the new championship protocol was about people showing up with their reputation and with their resumes. And also that hunger is what defines the greats. Well then if you look at Swerve, you’re looking at one of the greatest of all time. Fans cheer that! “No one out hustles me, no one out works me, and no one out grinds me. So you need to check my resume, and while you’re at it, you should proceed to put some respect on it, as well.” Fans cheer for that!

Swerve says 15 YEARS, he’s been grinding up and down, all in the hopes that somebody would one day see Swerve and go, “Y’know what? One day, Swerve might go down as one of the best int he world currently. Maybe one day.” Swerve then says after this past year, he’s proven that today is that day! He’s gone toe to toe with former world champions, and with some of the best legends AEW has to offer. The same thing every time: Swerve is left standing, and the fans have only one thing on their mind: “Whose House?” “SWERVE’S HOUSE!” And at Revolution, nothing changes! Except for one thing: the fact that Swerve will be holding the title above his head.

But then Hangman Page storms out shouting, “Hold on, hold on, hold on!” The fans are torn as The Cowboy says hey, first off, he wants to set the record straight! After last week’s match, he wasn’t mad. So when you write your weekly Dynamite reports, don’t put “Hangman was mad.” But everyone already knows that last week was BS! The fans are torn again, but Joe actually nods and agrees. Hangman says he signed a contract for a match to determine THE #1 contender to the World Championship, and the winner would be the contender. Swerve couldn’t do it! THIRTY MINUTES, and Swerve couldn’t do it!

So if this were up to Hangman, at Revolution, the match would be between two men who value and respect that title and everything that it stands for. Fans boo but Hangman says unfortunately, he doesn’t make the matches. So Swerve, you were “added” to this match. So Hangman wants to say something eye to eye and Swerve needs to hear it. Swerve says, “We gonna do this again?” Hangman says after everything Swerve has done to him, Swerve doesn’t deserve one second of Hangman’s time. Swerve doesn’t deserve for Hangman to give him five more minutes because he couldn’t get the job done! And Swerve does NOT deserve to be in this championship match!

But Joe steps in now. Back up, knock off the charades. This walking domestic dispute ends tonight! Joe knows what this is about. Each man thinks they can beat the other and just walk over Joe, but that’s not gonna happen! As far as they’re both concerned, he is Samoa Joe, and he’ll whoop both y’all’s asses!! Joe throws down his mic and storms out. Hangman and Swerve continue to argue, but will the numbers NOT spell disaster for Joe at Revolution?

 

Timeless Toni Storm presents… Wet Ink.

A beatnik jazz form of Seven Nation Army plays as the AEW Women’s World Champion asks, “What does this tuh-too remind me of? It reminds me of a girl I befriended because I felt sorry for her. A girl so naive, so needy, so desperate to make it, that she had my pity. You were my Young Girl, I showed you my ways. I brought you into Japan, I helped you sign a contract. I nurtured you on my bosom of brilliance, you suckled on my teet of talent. And now, you bit the tit that feeds you!” Storm is now in a tuh-too, er, uh, tattoo parlor with Luther and Mariah May, as she gets something put OVER the commemorative tattoo she and Deonna Purrazzo both have!

Storm continues to narrate, “Somewhere along the way, you forgot who you were. Thought you were the star of this story instead of just an extra. You want the old Toni Storm? Oh, you’ll get the old Toni Storm, and so much more. What do you do when you can’t change the past? You kill it!” The new tattoo? It’s a KNIFE going through the ducky!

Deonna Purrazzo responds.

Renee Paquette is now with The Virtuosa, having finished watching Wet Ink with the rest of us. Renee isn’t sure how she feels, so she can’t even imagine Deonna’s feelings. Deonna says that Toni Storm is what her family would call a yakkity yon. AKA, she talks too much. So Deonna will keep this short and sweet: “Toni, I’m gonna break your arm, b*tch!!” The leading lady may have crossed a line putting a dagger through Deonna’s heart, but will she lose that belt around her waist?

 

The Young Bucks step out of their stretch SUV.

They still haven’t changed out of the blood-soaked suits, and all they’ve done to prepare for their match is wrap their fists! Matthew Jackson says they’re gonna put on another banger, but are they taking the Air Wolf & Angel Dorado a little too lightly?

The Young Bucks VS Top Flight w/ Action Andretti!

The teams sort out and Nicholas starts against Dante. The fans rally for Top Flight as Dante stares Nick down. They tie up, Nick wrenches and wristlocks, but Dante goes to ropes. Dante flips through, WRINGS Nick out, and then dodges Nick to roll and headscissor. Nick shoves that away, Dante gets around to waistlock, but Nick switches and headlocks. Dante powers up and out, ducks ‘n’ dodges, then goes up and over as Nick runs in! Nick slides out, and he tells commentary to put respect on their names! Taz says he’s got them.

Direct hit on both Bucks and the fans fire back up! Top Flight puts Matthew in, Dante bumps him off buckles and tags Darius.

But Nick PENALTY KICKS Darius from the apron! The ref reprimands but Nick says that’s what Darius gets! Nick drags Darius up, puts him in, and Matt drags Darius around for haymakers. Matt whips Darius to the corner, runs up, but into BOOTS! Nick takes a swing, Darius dodges and Dynamite returns to single picture as Darius CLOBBERS Nick!

Nick then YANKS Dante into barriers! Darius runs in at Matt, but Nick holds onto Matt to stop the Monkey Flip! Matt then high stacks Darius, with feet on the ropes!! The ref sees that, Nick argues with him about it, but Matt pop-up LOW BLOWS Darius! Fans boo as the ref misses the bigger cheat! Tag to Nick, and the Bucks sit Darius up for E V P TRIGGER!! Cover, The Bucks win!

Winner: The Young Bucks, by pinfall

The abuse of power continues, but so does the Bucks’ chase after the AEW World Tag Team Championships. Tony Schiavone then joins Matthew Braun John & Nicholas Lee Jackson in the ring. He notes the big win, and Matt says “Undefeated this year, Nicholas! Holy crap! I think that makes us the top, unbeatable tag team in AEW.” Fans boo but Matt says he has reason to believe that after beating a team the quality of Top Flight, a great team really, it is safe to assume that The Bucks are the NEW #1 contenders! Wow, there’s already a graphic for that… Fans boo but Schiavone says Sting isn’t here to respond, because of the despicable, heinous act by-

Oh, despicable?! Heinous!? You guys just can’t stop yourselves! Matt has to sit at his desk every week and hear Schiavone talk trash on the Bucks! Every single week! Hey, Matt has to think that this might be a breach of contract! Publicly disparaging the EVPs?! That is unacceptable, bush league, and we all know it! Nicholas says that is a ONE THOUSAND DOLLAR FINE! Does Schiavone have a problem with that? DOES HE HAVE A PROBLEM!? Nick shoulder bumps Schiavone off his feet!! Matt takes the mic back, apologizes for his “hothead” brother, this doesn’t need to get physical. Just don’t let it happen again, Schiavone.

The Bucks get Schiavone’s hands to help him up, into an E V P- NO! Darby is here!! He rushes down with Sting’s black baseball bat! He runs the Bucks out of the ring, grabs the mic and shouts at them, go ahead and remind everyone of the original mission statement of AEW. It was “Change the World.” When Darby was homeless, he begged the Bucks for a job, but they saw nothing in him. He sat by while The Bucks hired their sh*t friends! All their stupid California crew! But thank God that there was an EVP with a sense of brains back then. And we ain’t talking Kenny Omega! Fans chant for “CODY! CODY!”

Darby says The Bucks did their little interview why they stuck with AEW. Why was that? It was because the schedule was light and the money was good, NOT because they wanted to change the world! Seems the original mission is dead! So much for this being AEW! This is All Friendship Wrestling. Think of that first episode: No Darby! But Brandon Cutler was there! What even!? Darby isn’t sure what kind of tussles the Bucks got into while they were homeschooled, but we’re talking Sting’s final match! The Bucks want to be Sting’s final opponents? Then they don’t know what they got themselves into.

We’re talking about a man who’s got nothing left to lose. Young Bucks VS Darby & Sting for the AEW World Tag Team Championships? “IT’S SHOWTIME~!” Darby says if the Bucks want it, they’ve got it! Will the Bucks take those titles off the Relentless Icons? Or will they get what they deserve instead?

 

Backstage interview with The Bang Bang Scissor Gang.

Renee Paquette is with Jay White, The Acclaimed & The Gunns, and says it seems things are going smoothly for these six. The merch looks great, too. So what is next for the super group? Well, Austin wants to welcome us to the BBSG Lounge! Bowens gives Renee a rose for Valentine’s Day, very sweet. Bowens then signals for Austin & Colten to keep cool, it’s just plutonic. Jay says back to the question, what is the goal for them? Well as she said, they’re running smoothly, have momentum, new merch, gold on all the waists, shoulders and in their possession. But they still need to test their cohesiveness in the ring.

Billy has an idea! How about this Friday- Austin cuts Daddy Ass off by suggesting a 12 Man Tag for Rampage! No one responds. Or… and this is totally Billy’s idea, a 12 Man Tag for Rampage! Everyone loves that idea! Billy says no big deal, he’s been doing this for awhile. Bowens says great idea, and BBSG rules the world! Because EVERYONE loves The Acclaimed, BANG BANG! And if you’re not down with that, they’ve got two words for ya: GUNS UP! A massive open challenge is now set, what set of six will step to Platinum Max, Five Tool Bowens, Daddy Ass, his sons, and the Switchblade for Rampage?

Willow Nightingale w/ Kris Statlander & Stokely Hathaway VS Skye Blue w/ Julia Hart!

The Babe with the Power used to be friends with Chicago Skye before Julia Hart stained her with the black mist. This is the first time they’ve ever been opponents, can Willow bring herself to crush Skye? Or will the House Always Win?

In an odd move, Kris sees Willow and Stokely off then returns to the back. Perhaps she wants to see if her friend and her manager can coexist without her as the buffer. Stokely joins commentary, the bell rings and the fans rally for Willow. Skye runs up to SHOTGUN Willow! Skye fires off in the corner, the ref counts, and Skye lets off. Skye storms up to whip but Willow handsprings through! Willow then scoops and SLAMS Skye, covers, ONE! Willow huffs and scoops but Skye slips free to dragon sleeper! But Willow picks Skye up to SLAM her again! Skye stands, dodges, and SLAPS Willow! Fans boo but Willow says okay then!

Willow bumps Skye off buckles, bumps her off more buckles, then bumps her off a third! Skye bails out, fans boo, but Stokely likes what he sees. Willow storms out to chase Skye around the ring, then back in. Skye keeps moving, but Willow gets around to shove, run and POUNCE! PERIOD! Skye tumbles right out to the floor and the fans fire up as Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Willow fumes while Skye flounders to a corner. Willow goes out to SMACK Skye off railing, then stomps her down. Willow SMACKS Skye off the apron, then whips her, only for Skye to reverse and POST Willow! Willow falls and clutches her head, but Skye storms up to stomp her down! Skye CLUBS Willow, stalks her, then pushes her into the ring. Skye stalks Willow, stomps her again, then CLUBS away on Willow’s back! Skye pushes Willow to a cover, TWO! Skye is frustrated, but she bumps Willow off buckles. Skye digs her boot in, waves hi and blows kisses, but Willow pushes Skye away. Skye comes back to fire forearms!

Skye snapmares Willow and KICKS her in the back! Skye paces around Willow, stands her up, but Willow blocks the suplex to suplex back! Willow storms up but Skye YANKS her into ropes! Skye runs in to BOOT WASH her! Skye then pushes Willow down, covers, TWO! Skye is frustrated and she SLAPS Willow. willow ROCKS Skye! Skye BOOTS Willow! Willow goes to ropes, Skye storms up to CLUB her on the back, then puts her in a corner to stomp away! The ref counts, Skye lets off and paces around. Skye goes back for Willow, brings her around and ROCKS her with a right hand! Willow snarls and she ROCKS Skye back!

Dynamite returns to single picture as the forearms go back and forth! The fans are on Willow’s side but Skye gets the edge! Willow blocks a shot, runs, but into a SUPERKICK! Skye roars, runs, but Willow blocks the boot to LARIAT! And LARIAT! Stokely again likes what he sees as Willow rallies with more shots! Skye goes to a corner, Willow runs up to back body block! Then LARIAT, then snapmare! Skye staggers up, into a BOOT! Willow drags Skye up, whips her again and hits the SPINEBUSTER! High stack, TWO! Skye survives but Willow stays on her with the gut wrench! Skye slips free, ducks a lariat and wrenches to a JAWBREAKER!

Skye SUPERKICKS, then BASEMENT DDTS! Cover, TWO!! Willow survives, but Skye gets her up into a full nelson! Willow fights free of that with elbows, then fireman’s carries! But Skye slips into a DRAGON SLEEPER BACKPACK! Willow endures, fans rally up, and Willow RAMS Skye into buckles! Stokely says Julia Hart’s TBS Championship is gonna be in trouble! Willow is free, runs in, but Skye slips to the outside. Willow still ROCKS Skye first, but then Skye avoids the shoulder! Willow avoids the boot and BLASTS Skye to the floor! The fans fire up with Willow and Stokely says even he’s all fired up!

Willow fetches Skye, puts her in the ring, and then stalks Skye to the corner. Willow hoists Skye up top, the fans rally behind her as she climbs, but Skye throws body shots! Skye slips under Willow, tucks her in, CHEEKY NANDOS! And then a FALLING POWERBOMB! High stack, TWO!! Willow survives and Skye shrieks in frustration! Stokely says he’s had enough of this, and he storms off of commentary. Skye runs, hops on, CODE BLUE! But Stokely distracts the ref!! Skye would’ve won by now! Skye is furious and shouts at the ref, the ref finally counts, TWO!! Willow has the cover, TWO!

Skye runs up, Willow dodges, and Willow mule kicks! Gut wrench, BABE WITH THE POWERBOMB!! Cover, Willow wins!

Winner: Willow Nightingale, by pinfall

#BigStoke gave a big assist to his other client, and he fist bumps with Willow. Will Stokely be right about the Princess of the Black Throne losing her crown one way or another?

Texas Death Match: Orange Cassidy VS Matt Taven!

With things escalating between Best Friends and the Undisputed Kingdom, yet Roderick Strong still wanting to wait until Revolution, the only way Freshly Squeezed can get revenge is by proxy! Will Cassidy crush one of the pawns on the way to the title match? Or will the AEW International Champion get beat to a pulp in the main event?

The bell rings and Cassidy runs right up! He and Taven brawl and the fans fire up! Taven shoves, Cassidy dodges and SHOTGUNS! Cassidy kips up and he stands off with Taven. Taven waves to the ramp, but that’s a fake out so Taven can CLOBBER Cassidy from behind! Taven CHOPS Cassidy to a corner, ROCKS him with a right, then whips corner to corner. Cassidy reverses, Taven goes up and over then keeps moving. Cassidy hurdles, keeps moving, but Taven DROPKICKS him down! Fans boo Taven but he says “III’M Matt Taven!” Taven CHOPS Cassidy, CHOPS him again, and then whips corner to corner.

Cassidy reverses, Taven goes under, ENZIGIRIS back, then hoists Cassidy up, a hard BLUE THUNDER BOMB! Cassidy flops out of the ring, the standing count starts, but Taven storms after him. Cassidy is up at 4 of 10, Taven RAMS him into railing! Taven SMACKS Cassidy off steel steps, then whips him into more railing! Cassidy slumps down but Taven drags him back up. The fans cheer Cassidy on but Taven ROCKS Cassidy again. Fans want tables but Cassidy sends Taven into railing! Cassidy whips Taven hard into more railing, then storms up on him. The fans fire up as Cassidy whips again, but Taven reverses!

Cassidy LEAPS over the railing clean! The fans fire up, and then Cassidy puts his hands in his pockets! Taven is furious, he hurries out after Cassidy, but into a BOOT! Cassidy CLUBS Taven, CLUBS him again, then brings him into the crowd with haymakers! The fans fire up while Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Cassidy brings Taven up the bleachers with a headlock, throws some hands, then keeps bringing Taven along. Taven SMACKS Cassidy with someone’s water bottle! The brawling continues up to the second level, and Taven CHOPS! Taven stalks Cassidy, throws more hands, then ROCKS him. Taven shoves Cassidy down the bleachers to return to the ground level. Taven SMACKS Cassidy off barriers, then brings him along for more CHOPS! They end up near the stage now, and Taven SMACKS Cassidy off light trusses! The standing count starts, Cassidy rises up, but Taven has found a table! Taven sets that up right over an AEW logo.

Taven storms up on Cassidy, ROCKS him with a right, but Cassidy ROCKS Taven in return! Cassidy fires more hands but Taven knees low! Taven SMACKS Cassidy off the table, then follows him as he staggers around. Taven brings Cassidy back around, SMACKS him off the table again, then pushes him onto it. Taven throws down more hands, then talks trash to the fans. Especially the kid cosplaying Cassidy. Taven throws down more hands, then he goes up onto the stage! Taven soaks up the heat, talks more trash, probably calls them all Melvins, and Dynamite returns to single picture. Taven takes aim, to MACHO ELBOW through the table!

Fans lose their minds as both men fall with the table, the table is really more dented than broken. The standing count starts all the same, and Taven drags the table over to prop it up against the ramp! Cassidy stands at 8 of 10, so Taven reels him in! Snap suplex through the table! Cassidy writhes, his forehead is a bit bloody, and the count begins again. Taven paces but Cassidy stands at 6 of 10! Taven ROCKS Cassidy, pushes him onto the ramp, then lines up the shot. JUST THE TIP of the knee! Taven tells the fans off, then wants the count. The count begins, but Cassidy rises pretty fast! So Taven is on him already, to push him into the ring.

Taven storms up on Cassidy, scoops him, and hits a BACKBREAKER! And then a flip around into a DDT!! Cassidy is down, the count begins, and some fans are stunned he’s still moving! Taven finds another table! Taven brings that up, and props it against the commentary desk!? Cassidy DIVES, but Taven narrowly avoids the table he set up! The count is now on Taven while Cassidy has a crimson mask forming. Cassidy puts Taven in, but Taven hits the springboard FLYING CHUCK! Cassidy wobbles, flops off the apron, and Taven builds speed! Taven WRECKS Cassidy, but Cassidy doesn’t fall!

Cassidy wobbles, he leans on the table and marks it with his blood. Taven builds speed again, and he FLIES, through the table!!! Cassidy avoids disaster and the fans lose their minds! Commentary can barely be heard, their own desk taking some damage in that crash! Cassidy staggers his way over while the count is climbing. Taven rises up, he’s bloodied now, and he stands at 9.5!! “This is Awesome!” as Cassidy has… A box of chocolates? The card reads “To: OC. From: Chuckie T. XOXO.” The Kentucky Gentleman left a Valentine’s Day gift for his buddy and the fans fire up! Cassidy takes the gift into the ring, opens it up, and surprise! It’s not candy, but THUMBTACKS!!

The fans are thunderous as Cassidy drags Taven up a corner! Taven throws body shots to resist, then he adjusts. Taven SHOVES Cassidy onto the tacks!! Cassidy writhes, and Taven adjusts, FROG SPLASH onto tacks!! Cassidy avoids disaster again and then runs, tilt-o-whirl DDT onto the tacks!! The fans lose their minds as both men continue to lose blood! Cassidy staggers up, Taven is still down, the count begins. Cassidy goes out, to get a steel chain!? And then an even bigger heart shaped box!? But then Mike Bennett rushes out here to CLOBBER Cassidy! It was only a matter of time before The Kingdom stopped playing fair!

Bennett gets that box, and he SMASHES it right on Cassidy’s head! Bennett puts Cassidy in while the fans boo, and Bennett puts chair after chair into the ring! Taven flounders around, the ref reprimands Bennett but there’s nothing to stop this! The chairs are a pile, but wait! Here comes Trent Beretta! And much like Arnold in Terminator 2, he has a box of roses, that he then pulls a weapon out of! It’s a steel pipe! Bennett has a chair, he takes a swing, but Trent dodges to CLOBBER Bennett with the pipe! But Taven CHUCKS a chair into Trent! Taven hoists Trent to the top rope, drapes him out, FULL METAL CLIMAX!!

But ORANGE PUNCH for Taven!! And then BEACH BREAK onto tacks and chairs!!! Taven writhes but Cassidy isn’t done with him! Taven RIPS the pockets away!? Fans boo, that’s like taking a luchador’s mask! Cassidy wraps that chain around his fist, and because “IIIIIIII’M Matt Taven!” FULL METAL ORANGE PUNCH!!! Taven is down, the count begins, but here comes Roddy! Roddy aims at Cassidy, STRONG KNEE into Trent!! Trent takes the bullet for Cassidy, and Taven is still floundering around at 8 of 10! Taven is DOWN, Cassidy wins!!

Winner: Orange Cassidy, by technical knockout

The International Champion’s Best Friends came through for him and they thwarted The Undisputed Kingdom! But with Revolution fast approaching, is Cassidy going to stand a chance against the Savior of the Backbreaker?


My Thoughts:

An awesome Dynamite here, lots of big stuff going down. Toni Storm’s Wet Ink was very well done, clearly she’s been given a bigger budget compared to her early films because of how successful she’s been. And what a powerful move to (I assume legitimately) change her tattoo to stick it to Deonna. Speaking of powerful moves, Callis making Takeshita VS Ospreay happen for the hell of it, that’s going to be an awesome match. And it makes me think Ospreay and Fletcher are gonna break away from the Don Callis Family to get some United Empire stuff going in AEW. Then they can make it DCF VS Empire if they’re moving away from Jericho (and they probably should be).

Just as I was wondering why Bang Bang Scissor Gang wasn’t doing much, they show up to have a group promo and it was a lot of fun. A 12 Man Tag is going to be nuts, and it’ll certainly be like three different jobber tag teams like Outrunners, The Workhorsemen and Butcher & Blade because of course BBSG is winning. I would really hope one of the tag teams (Ass Boys or Acclaimed) call out The Kingdom’s Taven & Bennett for an ROH World Tag Team Championship match, and for the love of pro-wrestling, get these guys on ROH since Bullet Club Gold are the ROH World Six Man Tag Team Champions!

Moxley VS Dax was an awesome opener, great win for Moxley, and clearly BCC is turning Heel since FTR is sticking to Face. The tag match next week will be awesome, too, surely setting up the winners as tag title contenders for after Revolution. And of course we were officially given Darby & Sting VS Bucks for Revolution. Great tag match from Bucks VS Top Flight, and pretty good “abuse” of EVP authority for “Matthew & Nicholas” to use a simple 2-0 win streak as justification for the top spot. Darby had a great promo slamming the Bucks as sellouts, and now that the match is official, it is going to be awesome stuff.

Great match from Edge VS Garcia, but I should’ve figured it’d get “ruined” by The Patriarchy. It was ruled No Contest so that there wouldn’t be someone crowned the winner by disqualification, but after the Con-Chair-To to Edge, it feels like they might give Garcia the Revolution match. I say that because there shouldn’t be a Triple Threat, that’d make this too much like the world title story. Meanwhile, I don’t see Garcia winning the TNT Championship unless Edge thwarts Luchasaurus & Nick Wayne getting involved, maybe even Matt Menard since he stood up to Christian only to get knocked down by Luchasaurus. Honestly, I’d love if Garcia did win the title, then Christian VS Edge can be just about the grudge.

And speaking of the world title story, great promo from Joe, Hangman and Swerve. Seems we’ve gotten the double turn of Hangman and Swerve, despite Swerve doing what he did. But that is just how pro-wrestling works, where things are forgiven by the fans when the Heel turns Face. All that aside, the Six Man Tag set up for next week is going to be interesting because of how Hangman is becoming a Heel but RVD and Hook are still Faces, and then it’s hard to really say where Joe, Swerve and Cage are on the Heel-Face spectrum. Feels like RVD is taking the loss though, with Hook and Cage needing to be strong going into their FTW Championship match and of course Joe, Hangman & Swerve needing to stay even for their own title match.

Really good match from Willow VS Skye, and I find it interesting Stokely has come around to Willow so quickly. He helps her get the win, hard to say if she knew that or not, but it definitely feels like Willow and Kris will have to fight if either wants a shot at Julia and the TBS title. And then awesome main event in that Texas Death Last Man Standing Match. Matt Taven may be like if The Miz never went Hollywood with his gimmick, but he is still really good in the ring, proved himself in ROH, so him and Cassidy was the right move for the match. Still wish they’d be careful with blood, feels like Cassidy’s blading was overdone. And of course it got overbooked but great win for Cassidy here to keep himself going strong towards Revolution.

My Score: 9/10

Backstage interview with Hook and Katsuyori Shibata.

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

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

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

Hook falls, sputters, and the ref has Shane stay back to check. That could’ve been a liver shot but Shane hauls Hook up. Shane CHOPS Hook in the career, and Hook sputters as he goes along ropes. Shane taunts Hook, puts him in a corner, and CHOPS again! Hook staggers to another corner, Shane taunts him, “I thought you were the man!” Shane BODY BLOWS again and Hook coughs. Hook fires hands in return, backs Shane down, then reels Shane in! Shane’s too big for the suplex, though!

Shane shoves Hook, and BODY BLOWS! Hook falls to the mat, but Shane drags him back up. Shane HEADBUTTS Hook, Hook is dazed, and Shane says he thought Hook was a killer. Shane says to bow down to the killer that’s badder! Shane CHOPS Hook, suplexes him, and hangs him out to dry!

Backstage interview with Rocky Romero.

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

 

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

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

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

Rocky endures as Roddy digs knee into Rocky’s back. Rocky fights up, moves around, but Roddy knees him low! Roddy scoops Rocky to RAM him into buckles! Then OKLAHOMA STAMPEDE! Cover, TWO! Rocky is still in this but Roddy stays on Rocky with stomps. Roddy stomps and stomps as BOTB returns to single picture. Roddy goes back to the motorcycle stretch but the fans rally again. Rocky fights up, fights back, and he KICKS Roddy’s leg! And KICKS! Roddy CLUBS Rocky, eggs Rocky on, but Rocky roars! Rocky fires forearms, then UPPERCUTS!

Winner: Roderick Strong, by pinfall (denies Rocky Romero a title opportunity)

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

 

Backstage interview with Serena Deeb.

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

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

 

BREAKING NEWS for Dynasty!

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


My Thoughts:

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

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

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

My Score: 8.6/10

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

The Don Callis Family is out for blood!

Published

on

Will the Blackpool Combat Club survive this Collision?

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

OFFICIAL RESULTS

  • Six Man Tag: The House of Black VS Dante Martin, Action Andretti & Matt Sydal; The House of Black wins.
  • Katsuyori Shibata VS Lee Moriarty; Shibata wins.
  • Daniel Garcia VS Angelico w/ Serpentico; Garcia wins.
  • AEW Women’s World Championship Eliminator: Toni Storm w/ Luther & Mariah May VS AZM w/ Anna Jay; Storm wins and denies AZM a title match.
  • Bryan Danielson & Claudio Castagnoli VS Will Hobbs & Kyle Fletcher; Bryan & Claudio win.

PLAY BY PLAY

The Blackpool Combat Club speaks.

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

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

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

 

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

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

Backstage interview with Toni Storm, Mariah May & Luther.

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

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

 

AEW shares footage from after Dynamite.

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

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

 

Katsuyori Shibata VS Lee Moriarty w/ Shane Taylor Promotions!

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

The bell rings and the fans rally up. Lee and Shibata circle, Ogogo joins commentary to say the “skull cracking, jaw jacking Gov’nah is back in AEW.” Shibata and Lee clinch, go around, and Shibata waistlocks.

The fans boo while Ogogo rejoins commentary and the ring count begins. Lee mockingly applauds and Ogogo pretends not to know what happened. The count is 8! 9! Shibata springs in at 9.9! But Lee CLOBBERS Shibata, covers, TWO!!

Lee clamps right onto Shibata, steps over, and SNAP LOCKS the short arm scissor while Collision goes picture in picture.

Lee turns Shibata over, keeps the one arm trapped in a hammerlock, then pulls on the other arm. Shibata endures as Lee tortures the fingers and twists the wrist!

Shibata escapes but Lee stalks him to ropes. Lee drags Shibata up but Shibata CHOPS! Lee comes back but Shibata ROCKS him! Lee comes back again, ROCKS Shibata, and Shibata falls over! Lee digs his boots in at the ropes, scrapes Shibata out of the ring, then soaks up the heat.

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

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

Lee sits down, Shibata COHPS and CHOPS and runs, HYDRAULIC DROPKICK! The fans fire up for Shibata’s signature and STP looks upset! Shibata snap suplexes, covers, TWO! Lee stays in this and both men catch their breaths, but Shibata gets Lee up. Lee switches around to COBRA TWIST! The fans rally as Shibata endures, and Shibata pries at the grip. Shibata switches the Cobra Twist onto Lee! Lee endures now, marches his way forward, and has the ROPEBREAK! But Shibata KNEES Lee low! Shibata reels Lee in to SAIDO! Shibata runs up, but Lee ducks the kick! Lee kicks, Shibata blocks but the KNEE hits!

Lee runs, BOOTS, but Shibata stays up! Shibata fires up and runs, to BOOT Lee! Lee wobbles, roars, and runs to BOOT! Shibata runs to BOOT! Lee rebounds, into a BOOT! Shibata waistlocks, Lee fight sit to switch, facelock and suplex, but Shibata fights out! Lee catches Shibata, wrenches, and THE- NO, Shibata avoids the Fang to SLEEPER! Ripcord PALM STRIKE! Then PENALTY KICK!! Cover, Shibata wins!

Winner: Katsuyori Shibata, by pinfall

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

 

Backstage interview with Athena & Billie Starkz.

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

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

 

Backstage interview with The Undisputed Kingdom.

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

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

 

Daniel Garcia VS Angelico w/ Serpentico!

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

The bell rings, the fans rally and the two circle. They feel things out, tie up, and Angelico wrenches to a hammerlock.

Pac speaks.

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

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

 

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

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

The bell rings and the fans rally up already. The two circle, feel things out, and then tie up. Storm throws AZM down then laughs at her, but AZM gets right up. They reset, circle again, and tie up.

AZM tumbles and flounders into a corner, and Storm takes aim! She’s ready for her close-up! SWEET HIP MUSIC~! STORM ZERO PILEDRIVER!! Cover, Storm wins!

Winner: Toni Storm, by pinfall (denies AZM a title opportunity)

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

 

Backstage interview with Red Velvet.

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

 

Mark Briscoe speaks.

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

 

Tony Schiavone is on stage.

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

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

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

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

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

 

Deonna Purrazzo speaks.

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

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

 

BREAKING NEWS for Dynasty!

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

 

The Don Callis Family speaks.

Kyle Fletcher says tonight in the main event, he and Will Hobbs are on a mission for the Don Callis family. That is to protect the golden goose. This Wednesday Night Dynamite, Claudio will end up a cakewalk for Ospreay! And Dynasty, Bryan will be the exact same thing, all thanks to DCF. Hobbs says not to worry about next week, let’s just focus on tonight. Tonight, they got Claudio and Danielson, and tonight the DCF expects a hefty fine.

Claudio gets a chair and he runs off the DCF, but the damage has been done! Will the American Dragon be able to recover in time for Dynasty?


My Thoughts:

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

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

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

My Score: 8.7/10
