The fans are going nuts, the four men are separated again, but it is very clear things between the BCC and FTR are far from over! What will it take to put this to rest?

 

Backstage interview with Orange Cassidy.

Renee Paquette is with Freshly Squeezed, and Doc Sampson, too, actually. She says Orange has been through a lot lately, to say the least. In chronological order: the Six Man Tag after Chuck Taylor gets taken out; Rocky Romero gets taken out after the Six Man Tag; Cassidy takes on Tomohiro Ishii 1v1; The Kingdom hits Cassidy with a Spike Piledriver; Cassidy has a Texas Deathmatch with Matt Taven; Trent Beretta gets beat down, isn’t medically cleared and isn’t present tonight; Cassidy goes to England to visit Wembley Stadium; Cassidy defends his International Championship under Rev-Pro; and there’s still Revolution.

How is Cassidy feeling here and now? Is he even medically cleared to compete? Well, uh, that’s why Doc is here. Doc says fortunately–or is it unfortunately?–Cassidy just needs to make the bare minimum, and he does, so that means he’s cleared for tonight. And if he is cleared, then he’s gonna wrestle. Cassidy is taking Trent’s place in facing Mike Bennett, will the Best Friends be avenged?

 

Backstage interview with FTR.

Alex Marvez is with Cash & Dax and notes that they were maybe 10 seconds away from winning tonight. Cash says it could’ve just been five, and Dax says the thing is, he came to kick BCC’s ass and they did that. BCC thinks they run AEW, but FTR bows down to nobody. What he suggests is: Revolution is coming up; FTR doesn’t have a match; BCC doesn’t have a match. therefore, FTR VS BCC again. But speaking of, BCC is storming their way up! Security and refs stand between these four to keep this from getting physical, but it should be obvious when and where we’re going to see this happen again. Will it be a barn burner in Greensboro?

 

Orange Cassidy VS Mike Bennett w/ Matt Taven!

As we heard from Renee, Freshly Squeezed has been through the wringer but isn’t even slowing down. Is he going to get revenge for Chuck, Rocky and Trent here tonight? Or is he playing right into the Undisputed Kingdom’s hands?

As The Kingdom make their entrance, Cassidy doesn’t even wait for the bell, he rushes up the ramp! Cassidy dodges Bennett to ORANGE PUNCH Taven down! The fans fire up as Cassidy fires off on Mike and sends him down the ramp! Mike flounders to ringside, Cassidy goes after him and puts him in the ring. The fans are fired up and the bell sounds. Cassidy storms up on Mike in a corner to “viciously” stomp. Then Cassidy actually stomps away on Mike! The ref counts, Cassidy lets off, and Mike gets up to SUCKER PUNCH! The fans boo but Mike bumps Cassidy off buckles. Mike CHOPS, then stalks Cassidy to a corner.

Mike CHOPS Cassidy again, brings him around, and whips corner to corner hard! Cassidy bounces off buckles, the fans boo but Mike soaks it up. Mike drags Cassidy up, suplexes high and hard, then covers, ONE! Mike is frustrated already but he stomps Cassidy. Mike mocks the chants then bumps Cassidy off buckles. Mike digs his boots in, lets off to blow kisses to the fans, then he suplexes high and hard again. Cover, TWO! Mike is even more frustrated, and he drags Cassidy up to DECK him! Mike then drags Cassidy back up, suplexes, but gets STUN DOG MILLIONAIRE! Cassidy runs, ducks ‘n’ dodges, then tilt-o-whirl DDTS!

The fans fire up as Cassidy kips up! Cassidy powers up the arm but Roderick Strong runs out here! The ref stops Roddy from getting at Cassidy, and Cassidy puts his hands in his pockets! More refs get out here to usher Roddy away, but Mike LOW BLOWS Cassidy! A punch right to the plums brings Orange down, and Mike grins. Mike gets Cassidy up, PILEDRIVER! Cover, TWO!! Cassidy survives and shocks Mike! Cassidy tumbles out of the ring while Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Cassidy hobbles, Mike pursues, and Mike THROWS Cassidy into railing! Mike soaks up the heat from Tulsa, then mocks the putting hands into pockets, by flipping everyone off! Mike then THROWS Cassidy into more railing! Cassidy writhes, Mike laughs, and Mike taunts fans while standing on Cassidy’s head! The ref counts, Mike lets off to refresh the ring count, and then he RAMS Cassidy into steel steps! Mike DECKS Cassidy, then shoves him into the ring. Cover, TWO! Cassidy shakes his head, showing that toughness, but Mike kicks him around. Mike stands Cassidy up to hit an EXPLODER! Cover, TWO!

Mike is frustrated again while Cassidy bails back out. Mike paces, pursues, and he whips Cassidy, only for Cassidy to reverse! Mike hits steel steps! Cassidy hobbles over but Mike SUPERKICKS him! Cassidy staggers his way into the ring, Mike follows, and Mike drops a leg! Cover, TWO! Cassidy survives but Mike KNEES him in the back! Mike whips Cassidy to a corner hard and Cassidy falls in a heap. Mike storms up, drags Cassidy up, and CHOPS him in the corner. Cassidy sputters, Mike CHOPS him again, and then Mike brings Cassidy around to bump off buckles. Mike keeps after Cassidy with uppercuts while Dynamite returns to single picture.

The fans rally, Mike whips corner to corner, Cassidy tumbles up and out and to the floor! Cassidy writhes, Mike soaks up more heat, and he drags Cassidy up to DECK him again! Mike drags Cassidy into the ring, talks trash on commentary, and says he does this job better than Schiavone and Excalibur. The problem with AEW is guys like Orange Cassidy. Roddy is taking that title! You hear him!? Y-Yes, they hear him. But then Cassidy DIVES onto Mike and wipes him out! The fans fire up again and Cassidy puts Mike back in. Mike bails out the other side, but Cassidy builds speed to DIVE again!

Fans fire up as Mike hits railing, and Cassidy gets him back in the ring. Mike comes back, and he gives Cassidy an APRON SPINEBUSTER! Then a fireman’s carry, DEATH VALLEY DRIVER to the floor! Cassidy writhes, Mike grins and puts Cassidy back in. Mike runs up, into an ORANGE PUNCH!!! The fans are thunderous as Cassidy shakes the ropes! Cassidy goes to another corner, he watches Mike rise, and he runs in to Alabama Lift! But Mike fights that to lift! Cassidy fights that, the two fight for control! Cassidy gets Mike up but Mike fights that back down! Mike gets Cassidy up but Cassidy fights that!

Mike still powers Cassidy up, for a GOTCH PILEDRIVER!! Mike crawls to the cover, TWO!!! Cassidy is almost superhuman at this point, and Mike seethes. Mike waits on Cassidy to stand, then runs, but Cassidy dodges! SUPERKICK! Mike ROLLING ELBOWS! Cassidy stays on his feet, a second ROLLING ELBOW knocks him down! The fans boo but Mike hauls Cassidy up. But Cassidy lifts for BEACH BREAK!! Cover, Cassidy wins!!!

Winner: Orange Cassidy, by pinfall

But then Taven returns to attack! The fans boo as Taven beats Cassidy down, and then Roddy returns to add on! The fans boo harder as Taven sets Cassidy up, but wait! JAKE HAGER!? Oklahoma’s own gets in, runs off Roddy and SPINEBUSTERS Taven! Then he CLOBBERS Mike! The Kingdom retreats, and BREAKING NEWS for Rampage! Hager will take on Roddy Strong! Is Roddy strong enough to bring down the Big Hurt?

 

Backstage interview with Angelo Parker.

Renee says tonight is the night. Cool Hand Ange gets his date with Ruby Soho, how is he feeling? It’s wild. Renee knows better than anyone that this has been a wild process, so he’s excited, nervous and- Ruby is here, in a dress! Renee will let them take it from here, see you later. Ruby promises to tell Renee all about it later, Renee says, “Don’t do anything I wouldn’t do,” and Ruby says, “No promises.” Parker offers his arm, Ruby takes it, and the two spot a car pulling up. Is this them? No, Parker got a Lyft. Is that okay? Ruby’s fine with that.

The lovebirds head out, but who steps out of the SUV? It’s RIC FLAIR! The Nature Boy is back, will he have something to say on the road to Revolution?

 

Backstage interview with Ric Flair.

Dynamite returns, and Renee says it’s great to see the Nature Boy. But with Revolution, March 3rd, just around the corner, Sting’s final match, can we get some thoughts on what this means to Ric? He says that he and Sting have known each other a long time, he doesn’t care if anyone dislikes what he’s about to say, but Ric is disappointed. When he signed up for this retirement tour, he hoped he’d be part of the picture more, if that makes sense. But Sting the person, Sting the Icon, Ric just wished Sting would involve him more. Ric’s also a little disappointed in himself that he hasn’t been in the middle of all of this.

So Ric’s gonna “explore some options.” Just telling the truth. Renee appreciates the time, and Ric continues on to the office of… Matthew & Nicholas Jackson!? The Bucks grumble that Ric’s here, but he says he wants a word. Do they have the time? Sure, let’s talk. The EVPs welcome Ric into their office, what is The Nature Boy gonna wheel ‘n’ deal this time?

 

Tony Schiavone is in the ring.

He welcomes to one of the great young stars of AEW, it’s Daniel Garcia! The fans cheer as The Dragonslayer makes his way down to the ring, and does his dance! Garcia joins Schiavone and Schiavone brings up the match last week, Garcia VS Adam “Edge” Copeland, hoping to name a contender to the TNT Championship. Unfortunately, we saw what happened, The Patriarchy attacked and now The Rated R Superstar is unable to compete, he’s on the shelf. Fans boo that, but Schiavone says here’s a big announcement: Revolution will see Daniel Garcia challenge Christian Cage for the TNT title!

Schiavone hands Garcia the mic to speak, and fans chant “You Deserve It!” Garcia has them calm down, and says a lot of the time, he feels like he doesn’t, so thanks for saying that. From the bottom of his heart, thank you. He always felt like in this business, he was destined for great things. That is what people told him, that he’d be great. But a couple months ago, when he was at his lowest, it was one of the lowest moments in his career, in his life, he lost confidence. He started to lose that feeling, he really did. But Garcia knew going through all that, three seconds is all he needs. And at the end of the Continental Classic, he got those three seconds!

Garcia took full advantage of three seconds, and those three seconds changed his life! The fans cheer that, and Garcia says every single time he got down, y’all picked him back up! Every time he danced, y’all danced with him! And he can’t thank them enough for helping him restore that feeling! The fans cheer Garcia on, and Garcia then tells Adam Copeland through the camera, no one knows how their match would’ve ended. But Garcia is confident that if it went on any longer, Garcia would’ve tapped Edge out. Fans are mixed there, but Garcia says it isn’t done between them. He will see Edge again. Just know that when that day comes, Garcia will be holding the TNT Championship!

Garcia says that brings us to Revolution! Garcia has a message for Christian! When Christian steps into the ring with Garcia, Garcia will take him down to- Oh, of course, here comes Captain Charisma, as well as his Patriarchy, from Nick and “Mother” Shayna to Killswitch/Luchasaurus. Christian has a mic to say, “Adam Copeland will not have another chance at my TNT Championship ever, do you understand me?” Fans boo but Christian says Tulsa needs to sit down and shut their mouths while he conducts his business. Fans still boo, but Christian tells Daniel that what happened last week was just a byproduct of being in the ring with Edge.

But it worked out pretty well, right? Because now Garcia stands as #1 contender to the TNT Championship for Revolution. Christian adds that Garcia’s been on a hell of a run lately, getting wins left and right. But Christian must say, as much as he’d love to go 1v1 with Garcia for the title, he doesn’t think it should happen at Revolution. Fans boo that and Garcia says okay, then where? Christian says it’s not that Garcia isn’t worthy, it’s that Christian doesn’t think he’s ready. Because he doesn’t need to tell Garcia that Garcia is easily distracted. Don’t get Christian wrong, he likes the signature dance as much as the next guy.

But the thing is, that is a distraction. Garcia just wants to make people, to entertain them, to send them home saying, “Daniel Garcia was great, wasn’t he?” Christian wants to send them home knowing he is the most dominant TNT Champion of all time! The fans boo again but Christian tells them to pipe down. Christian says they both know why Garcia is the way he is, don’t they? Christian knows something the fans don’t. The fans chant “You Suck! You Suck!” but Christian says Garcia had a pretty dark childhood, didn’t he? That he didn’t have so many happy memories. So here’s a question: Does Garcia know a Jackie Garcia in Buffalo Court?

Can Garcia confirm that Jackie was married to one David Garcia? And that David is Daniel’s father, and that David… IS DEAD! Fans boo, we all knew where he was gong with this! Now wouldn’t it be a sweet fairytale ending for Garcia to walk into Revolution, win the TNT title, raise it up and dedicate it to his late great father? Well let’s be honest, Garcia knows as well as Christian does that David wasn’t so great. David was a PIECE OF CRAP LOSER ALCOHOLIC that lost his life to the bottle!! And unlike him, Christian doesn’t wanna hurt Garcia. Unlike David, Christian wants Daniel to fulfill his potential.

Unlike David, Christian doesn’t want to be Daniel’s opponent, he wants to be Daniel’s father. Fans boo even harder and Garcia seethes. Garcia tells Christian that if he ever talks about Garcia’s beautiful mother again, he’s a dead man! But since we’re talking about dead relatives, and about Garcia’s dead dad, how about Christian get in the ring so Garcia can put him in the ground right next to him!? The fans fire up and Garcia throws his jacket off. Christian sends Nick instead, so Garcia dodges Nick, trips him, and puts on the DRAGON TAMER!! Christian sends Killswitchasaurus, but Garcia lets Nick go to be ready.

And then Matt Menard SMACKS Luchasaurus with a chair! And again! Daddy Magic dares Christian to do something as he stands tall with Garcia! The fans fire up, and despite what Christian wants, the match his still on! Will Red Death end Christian’s reign of terror?

 

Backstage interview with Hangman Page, Hook & Rob Van Dam.

Renee says tonight’s main event is these three against Samoa Joe, Swerve Strickland & Brian Cage. The Cowboy is also days away from the AEW World Championship Triple Threat, how is he feeling ahead of tonight? Hangman says tonight is all about opportunity, and opportunity for all three of his team. Hook wants to avenge his loss to Samoa Joe, RVD wants to redeem himself against Swerve for that loss under hardcore rules. And honestly, if RVD had beat Swerve that night, we wouldn’t be here in the first place, but that’s not the point. RVD says hey, he’s not happy about that either. Was Nana even there? Or was he getting into something else RVD would be interested in?

Hangman has RVD focus: this is a chance tonight before Revolution to hurt Swerve Strickland, and that is what they’re gonna do! That’s the plan, stick to it, they both owe him! RVD is fired up, and wonders if Nana will be here tonight. This one of a kind trio is ready, but will they take over whose house?

 

“Timeless” Toni Storm w/ Luther & Mariah May VS Sydni Winnell!

The AEW Women’s World Champion continues her string of “public workouts” on her way to Revolution, looking to stay sharp ahead of facing Deonna Purrazzo. Will the leading lady make this look easy? Or will she be caught off guard by Tulsa’s hometown girl?

The bell rings and Storm fires off on Sydni! Storm stomps Sydni in the corner, lets off as the ref counts, and Storm storms back up. Storm brings Sydni up but Sydni throws forearms! The fans rally as Sydni whips, but Storm reverses. Sydni ducks ‘n’ dodges but Storm hits a THESZ PRESS! Storm rains down fists, lets off, and the fans cheer, as does Mariah. Storm whips Sydni to a corner, runs in, and SPLASHES! Storm then headlocks for a BULLDOG! Storm smiles as she gets her filter, and she goes back to Sydni. Sydni JAWBREAKERS, then runs up, but Storm trips her! Storm runs to SWEET HIP MUSIC!

Storm brings Sydni up, STORM ZERO! But Storm isn’t done here, she gets a leg for the ANKLE LOCK! Sydni endures but then Storm lets go. She says that’s too easy! FUJIWARA ARMBAR, and then VENUS DE MILO!! Sydni verbally quits, Storm wins!

Winner: Toni Storm, by submission

The AEW Women’s World Champion just sent a message to her challenger that anything Deonna can do, Storm can do better. Will nothing stop Storm- Wait! Speak of the Virtuosa and here she comes! She wants her match now, will she upstage the leading lady?

Deonna Purrazzo VS Madison Rayne!

The bell rings and the two shake hands. They circle, tie up, and Rayne waistlocks. Deonna switches and SLAMS Rayne down, then facelocks. Rayne fights up, wrenches to a wristlock but Deonna headlocks for a takeover. The fans rally, Rayne headscissors, but Deonna kips free. Rayne sweeps to cover, ONE! Deonna goes to sweep, Rayne avoids it, so Deonna body shots and snapmares. Deonna chinlocks but Rayne fights up. The fans rally, Deonna shifts to a headlock and she grinds Rayne again. Rayne pops out the back, headlocks in return, but Deonna powers up and out. They RAM shoulders and neither falls.

The fans rally, Rayne trips Deonna then things speed up. Rayne stops to stomp the dropdown, then she CLUBS away on Deonna! Rayne drags Deonna up, bumps her off buckles, and then digs her boots in. The ref counts, Rayne lets off at 4, and she whips Deonna corner to corner. Deonna stops herself, goes under and keeps moving, to then BOOT Rayne down! The fans fire up with Deonna while Rayne goes to the apron. Deonna waits, then rallies the fans as she builds speed, and she WRECKS Rayne with a dropkick! The Virtuosa lounges on the apron while Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Deonna fetches Rayne, reels her in, but Rayne fights the suplex! Rayne throws body shots, then RAMS Deonna into the apron! Rayne SMACKS Deonna off the apron now, then brings her around to SMACK her off the steps! Deonna falls over, Rayne refreshes the ring count, and soaks up the cheers and jeers. Deonna flounders into the ring but Rayne stomps her to the corner. Rayne digs her knee in and smiles, then lets off as she blows kisses. Deonna goes to a corner but Rayne brings her out. Deonna fights the suplex now, so Rayne throws knees! Rayne cranks on the facelock to hit a INVERTED DDT!

Rayne keeps the facelock on so she can grind Deonna down. Deonna endures, fights back up, but Rayne throws her by her hair! The ref reprimands but Rayne shrugs. Rayne drags Deonna up, facelocks again, and puts on the squeeze. Deonna endures, stands back up, and wrenches out to fire forearms!

Rayne hurries to ripcord Deonna, but Deonna denies her the cutter! DOUBLE LARIATS collide and both women are down! The fans rally back up and a standing count begins.

Rayne wobbles into the RUSSIAN LEG SWEEP! Then Deonna rolls but Rayne rolls through! Deonna stands Rayne up but Rayne breaks free of the wristlock! Rayne ROCKS Deonna, but Deonna ROCKS her back! Rayne ROCKS Deonna again, but Deonna ROCKS Rayne again!

Deonna then blocks a forearm to fire a flurry! She ROCKS Rayne, reels her in, but Rayne throws elbows free and rolls Deonna up! ONE!! Rayne stands, wrenches, hooks Deonna up, but Deonna wrenches free to FLATLINER!! The ref checks Rayne, that was a hard landing! Rayne is somehow okay, so Deonna looks to end this fast! She sends a message back to Toni Storm, she steals the “Break a Leg” ANKLE LOCK!! Rayne taps, Deonna wins!

Winner: Deonna Purrazzo, by submission

Tonight, the student surpasses the mentor, and she is primed for facing her former friend! Wait! Storm rushes back out here, armed with a shoe! Deonna dodges then BOOTS Storm down! Then she swings on Mariah! Mariah gets away, Storm catches Deonna into BREAK A LEG!! And with a grapevine!! Deonna endures, reaches around, the ref reprimanding Storm the whole time! Storm doesn’t let go, so the ref tells Luther to do something! He’s the butler, after all! Luther says fine, and he storms in to tell Lady Storm that this is enough. Storm lets Deonna go, then applies her lipstick like the madwoman she is!

Will Deonna learn she’s not ready to take the spotlight, nor the title, away from “Timeless” Toni Storm?

 

BREAKING NEWS for Rampage!

On top of Hager VS Roddy, and on top of Mariah May VS Anna Jay, we’ll hear from The EVPs, Matthew & Nicholas Jackson. Will they give us some insight as to what Ric Flair wanted to talk with them about? Plus, we’ll hear from Sammy Guevara, what are his thoughts after being blindsided by Powerhouse Hobbs? And then, there will be a massive Trios Triple Threat! Matt Sydal & Private Party VS Bryan Keith, Komander & Penta VS Top Flight & Action Andretti! Who will take a huge step towards challenging for the AEW World Trios Championships?

 

Darby Allin & Sting speak.

The Relentless One starts by saying, “When you’re close to the end, you look back at life, it really puts everything into perspective. The fame, the spotlight, the material objects that we chase that we think define us but in reality don’t mean a single thing. We’ve been looking at some old photos today. Sting, is it cool if I show the Young Bucks some of these photos?” The Icon is off camera but he says yeah, it’s cool. Darby says he’s got something to show us. Darby brings the pictures over and holds up one. This is a photo of Sting and his sons, Garrett & Steven, in matching face paint. The Bucks remember those two, right? Of course they do.

When this photo was taken, Garrett & Steven were about the same age as The Bucks’ kids are right now. This is Sting’s flesh and blood. “This is the only thing that matters in life in the end. It’s family.” Sting takes the photo to look at it. And Darby’s right, family is the only thing that really matters. Sting admits this strikes a nerve right now, too, because in all the years he’s been a pro-wrestler, nobody’s ever messed with his flesh ‘n’ blood. “Until you, Bucks. A lot’s going on in my own personal life the last couple of weeks. This, the Bucks, and only seven days ago or so, another family member of mine, my father, passed away.

“He was like a hero to me. He taught me right. Makes me think a lot about my own mortality. I used to think I was so invincible, y’know? Sometimes, I do feel that way still. But time catches up. Catches up with everyone, and it caught me for sure. I know that truly I am not invincible. But one thing that I do know: Everything that I have left in me… I’m bringing to Revolution. And it’s going to meet you face to face, Bucks. You have a fight on your hands. The fight of your life.” The Tornado Tag Match for the AEW World Tag Team Championships may be Sting’s last match, but will it be The Bucks’ last match, too?

 

Tony Schiavone is in the ring, again.

And this time, he welcomes The Undisputed Kingdom’s Wardlow! The fans boo as the War Dog storms his way down to the ring, sitting pretty on a nine match win streak. But then he grabs the mic away and tells Schiavone to get out of the ring before knocking him on his old ass again. Fans boo more but Wardlow says yeah, yeah, he’s pissed. He’s been pissed off for a long time. Two years ago, Wardlow had THOUSANDS and THOUSANDS of people chanting his name, city after city, in a manor that hasn’t been heard or seen in decades! Wardlow as the Next Big Thing!

“But apparently the rocket strapped to his back was put on upside-down, because ever since, he has been driven into the ground and screwed over and over and over again! “You would think the one true, homegrown, day one AEW original mega star would’ve been the champion a long time ago. But somehow, I’ve never even received an opportunity for the heavyweight title, and people back there need to be fired and thrown in jail for that fact! But let’s look at some of the people who have held it, because there’s been a lot of men running around here claiming to be the best.” Kings, gods, so what does that make Wardlow?

Because the Best in the World, the “real” heavyweight champion, Wardlow beat his ass like nobody has in his entire career! His body’s still falling apart from Wardlow! Which brings Wardlow to our former champ, the guy who is better than all of us and we know it. Yeah, your favorite! Guess what? Wardlow squashed him like an insect like nobody ever has in that guy’s career! Which brings him to the most dangerous man in the room, the current champ, Samoa Joe. Fans chant for Joe but Wardlow wants a reminder from when they were in the ring together. Oh right! Wardlow choked Joe’s ass out and beat him, too!

And by the way, big shiny belts and custom suits even better on Wardlow. So again he asks, “What does that make me? Because it sounds like I’M the Best in the World. It sounds like I’M better than you, and you know it. It sounds like I’M the most dangerous man in the room! I AM THE UNCROWNED KING OF AEW, and it is time I start eating like one, because I have been starving. And I am done being fed scraps. Look at me! LOOK AT ME! I am everything a world champion is supposed to be!! I’m the baddest SOB to ever lace up a pair of boots, and there is no one back there bigger, stronger or faster than me. There is no one that can stop me!

“And if anybody wants to get in my way, just know this is no longer wrestling. This is WAR!” Wardlow throws down the mic after having thrown down the challenge, will anyone dare step in the way of his warpath to the top?

 

AEW shares footage from after last Friday’s Rampage.

The Bang Bang Scissor Gang was successful in their first outing as a six pack, and they regrouped backstage. Jay White and the boys were all fired up, and Billy apologizes for knocking into White. Then what about Billy & Austin doing the 3:10 to Yuma when that’s kinda what the Gunn Brothers do? Uh, sorry, no apologies, Billy is their dad, he could easily be a Collision Cowboy. Maybe they get together and do like they did in the old days? Austin likes that idea. White double checks: the good ol’ days like when they won Six Man titles with their dad? Or did that not happen until Switchblade stepped on the scene?

But White tells “Mr. Gunn,” “Papa Gunn,” that he likes the idea. The next Collision, we get Billy, Colten and White teaming up to represent BBSG. Well, Austin was hoping to get in on that, but Caster & Bowens don’t mind. This is cohesion, because no matter the combo, The Bang Bang Scissor Gang rules the world. BECAUSE EVERYONE…! LOVES! THE ACCLAIMED! Bang Bang!! Will Daddy Ass, one of his sons and #KingSwitch make for a winning combination this Saturday on Collision?

 

BREAKING NEWS for Wardlow!

Tony Khan says if Wardlow wants to prove he’s the biggest and the baddest and the most deserving of the next world title shot, then he’ll get his chance inside what’s being called “Meat Madness!” More details to come on whatever that is, but will we get plenty of big meaty men slapping meat in the near future?

 

BREAKING NEWS for Dynamite!

Will Ospreay is going to make his return to AEW when Dynamite rolls into Huntsville, Alabama! Surely the Aerial Assassin has a lot to say about being full-time All Elite, but what will he have to say about facing fellow Don Callis Family member, Konosuke Takeshita, at Revolution? Speaking of…

Backstage interview with The Don Callis Family!

Renee is with “Powerhouse” Will Hobbs, “The Alpha” Konosuke Takeshita, and of course, creepy Callis himself. She brings up last week, Callis making the match for Revolution. Has he put any more thought into how that match is going to help the family? Yes, a lot of thought. This will help them big time because no matter what, two of the best in-ring competitors in the world, Ospreay and Konosuke, will still be part of the Don Callis Family. We just saw Ospreay have a great farewell to UK wrestling, even Tony Khan was there to cheer him on. Everyone thought Ospreay was going to get on the same flight with TK back to the US, but no.

And why was that? Because Callis is on his way with the DCF jet to pick Ospreay up and personally bring him stateside for Revolution! Callis is so excited about that, he’s even got the “meat madness!” He slaps Hobbs’ big chest, and that hurts Callis’ hand more than anything. Hobbs is the biggest, the strongest and most violent man in this company, and he is gonna put the hurt on a lot of people in the Meat Madness Match! But there’s a fly in the ointment and that’s Sammy Guevara. Callis hasn’t forgotten about that little cuck. We know Sammy’s gonna be in Tulsa for Rampage, so he and the Family will settle scores soon enough.

 

BREAKING NEWS for Collision!

No other sports are in the way, AEW’s back on Saturday, and Bryan Danielson gets another Strong Style dream match as he takes on Jun Akiyama! Will the American Dragon defeat Blue Thunder like he did Blue Justice? Or will he be slain by The Sternness?

 

Six Man Tag: Samoa Joe, Swerve Strickland & Brian Cage w/ Prince Nana VS Hangman Page, Hook & Rob Van Dam!

A lot has been said about the coming AEW World Championship Triple Threat, but the One True King of Wrestling Television is no stranger to those odds. But will his odds improve when he, The Realest & The Machine get through with this match? Or will the Cowboy, the Cold Hearted Handsome Devil and the One of a Kind legend execute the game plan and cut the title match down to a 1v1?

The teams sort out and Joe starts against Hook in a slight rematch of their world title showdown. They tie up, Joe shoves Hook away but Hook gets up. Joe chuckles, circles with Hook and they tie up again. Joe SLAMS Hook down but Hook gets up in a huff. Joe chuckles more but Hook keeps cool. They reset, tie up, and Joe powers Hook towards a corner. Hook uses that to send Joe in and fires off hands! Joe shoves Hook away but Hook comes back to ROCK Joe! Hook ducks ‘n’ dodges to LARIAT Joe down! Hook runs up to fire off in a corner!

RVD rolls free but Swerve somersaults, but RVD dodges the flatliner!

Hangman gets right in Swerve’s face and the fans fire up! Hangman TACKLES Swerve, the two scrap, Cage gets in and so does Hook. They separate the two, the fans want more “COWBOY SHID!” but Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Swerve talks trash, tags out, and Cage meets Page once again. Hangman kicks and CHOPS and CHOPS, then bumps Cage off buckles. Hangman tells Hook to handle this and tags him in. It’s a preview of the FTW Championship match as Hook fires knees into Cage’s abs. Hook throws body shots and forearms, the ref counts and Hook lets off to bring Cage out. Hook whips, then LARIATS!

Winners: Samoa Joe, Swerve Strickland & Brian Cage, by submission

The AEW World Champion lets go of RVD to hold up the belt. Swerve glares as he sputters against the apron, and Hangman says it’ll be different at Revolution. Will the numbers still spell disaster for Samoa Joe in the title match? Or will he use his enemies against each other like he did here tonight?


My Thoughts:

A great Dynamite here, even with it feeling a bit talky. But again, there was no Collision on Saturday, so promos they probably would’ve played that night had to play out here. For instance, Bang Bang Scissor Gang working out a mish-mash trio for this week’s Collision. As much as I want BBSG to go for more belts, clearly that’s not the case as there is a bit of tension growing within the group. It mostly just seems to be on White’s part after that miscommunication bump with Billy, makes me think the rest of the group will have to choose between the two at some point. And that trios match announced for Rampage sounds fun, any team could win it and get a match with the BBSG for titles.

Really good promo from Don Callis Family with Callis still thinking all will be good after Takeshita VS Ospreay happens, which keeps me thinking all will NOT be good, and we see Ospreay & Fletcher split off from Don Callis Family to get the United Empire going in AEW. And Callis calling out Sammy, that’s of course to keep in mind Hobbs VS Sammy in a big grudge match to wrap up that story, too. An equally good promo from Wardlow, and while he’s a Heel, he’s making good points. He really should’ve had a world title match sooner, other people’s issues got in the way, but I’m really curious as to why Wardlow didn’t just say “CM Punk” and “MJF” when we knew they were the people he meant.

This “Meat Madness” match is very intriguing, too. I kinda hope it isn’t just Wardlow and Hobbs, we need to see Lance Archer, The Butcher, maybe one or both of the Iron Savages, and they should make it an elimination/gauntlet match. But in the end, it’ll come down to Hobbs and Wardlow anyway, and I would think Wardlow wins to do just as he said, and just as Adam Cole wants, and that is become #1 contender to world title. Wardlow will make a great opponent for whoever comes out of Revolution as champion, and by extension, it’d be a great feud with The Undisputed Kingdom going into the Spring.

Speaking of the Kingdom, great match from Cassidy VS Bennett, and of course Taven & Roddy try to interfere. But great win for Cassidy, and what a surprise that Hager makes the save. Hager VS Roddy will be really good, but it makes me wonder what Hager’s role is gonna be while Cassidy’s friends are hurt (kayfabe and legit) and while Danhausen has been relegated to this week’s ROH episode. Hager’s had beef with Best Friends before, maybe he’s coming around to being a friend himself? Also nice little moment of seeing Parker and Ruby off on their date, seems the X-JAS are all going their separate ways.

Well, Menard seems to be sticking by Garcia, which is good because Garcia is gonna need back-up against The Patriarchy. Great promo from Garcia, and of course another “your dad is dead and was not as good as me!” promo from Christian. Typical heat grab from Christian but it always works, and just as I knew, we’re going to get a great TNT Championship match from Christian and Garcia. Meanwhile, Ric Flair showing up during the Parker-Ruby segment was as good a segue as any into Flair talking with The Bucks. Powerful promo from Sting and Darby to follow all that up, but I have a bad feeling Ric is going to betray Sting and side with The Bucks at Revolution to help The Bucks win those belts. All the heat on Bucks and Flair, Darby will seek revenge for the Spring.

Great opening tag match from FTR VS BCC, and this is setting up what will be an awesome tag match for Revolution that essentially names the next challengers to the tag titles. Feels a bit obvious if they’re gonna use this to get back to FTR VS Bucks in time for like Double or Nothing, but that feud is inevitable anyway. Great stuff from Storm and Deonna, even with both their matches being pretty obvious. I’ll refrain from criticizing Rayne as I have before, though she really drove her own head into that mat just for Deonna’s flatliner. She was apparently okay to do that last spot, and then great little brawl of Storm and Deonna.

And great stuff in the world title scene. Great promo from Hangman with his team, awesome Six Man Tag main event of course, great interaction of all the stories, especially of Joe, Hangman and Swerve near the end there. But I even said it last week that RVD was taking the loss. Joe stands tall, Hangman and Swerve are frustrated, Joe could easily use them against each other in the Triple Threat to retain and face Wardlow after being called out.

My Score: 8.9/10

AEW Collision bleeds over a bit.

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

 

Backstage interview with Hook and Katsuyori Shibata.

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

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

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

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see who’s really the biggest badass in AEW!

The bell rings, the two circle, and they feel things out. Shane swings, Hook dodges to fire off fast hands and forearms! The fans fire up behind Hook but Shane shoves him away.

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! Hook sputters and falls, Shane soaks up heat, and Battle of the Belts goes picture in picture.

Shane drags Hook up, TOSSES him out, then goes out to bring Hook up. Shane whips Hook hard into steel steps! Hook writhes, Shane storms around, then Shane drags Hook up. Shane makes Hook take a seat in a corner, then runs up to KNEE Hook against railing! Hook falls over, but he’s somehow still conscious! Shane drags Hook up and hangs him out to dry on the railing! Hook sputters and falls to the floor, and Shane talks more trash. Shane drags Hook up, puts him in the ring, and BOTB returns to single picture. Shane has Hook on the apron, for the APRON LEG DROP! Hook sputters more while Shane seethes.

Shane storms in, talks trash on the fans, then soaks up the heat. Shane drags Hook up, puts him in the corner, and BODY SHOTS! BODY SHOT! HAYMAKER!

Hook ROCKS Shane back! And ROCKS him again and again! The fans fire up as Hook fires more shots! Hook runs to LARAIT! Shane stays up, Hook LARIATS again!

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 keeps one eye on The Kingdom, then he brings Roddy around. UPPERCUT and Roddy staggers. Roddy BOOTS, whips, but Rocky goes Spiderman! Rocky then dodges Roddy and sends him tumbling out!

Roddy hobbles to a corner, Rocky CHOPS him and then follows him. Rocky ROCKS Roddy, ROCKS him again, but Roddy bails out. Rocky goes after Roddy on the apron, but Roddy lifts!

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!

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?

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

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

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

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

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

Winner: Daniel Garcia, by submission

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

 

Pac speaks.

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

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

 

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

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

The bell rings and the fans rally up already. The two circle, feel things out, and then tie up. Storm throws AZM down then laughs at her, but AZM gets right up. They reset, circle again, and tie up. They go around, Storm puts AZM on ropes, then sits her down! Storm poses and the fans cheer, but AZM is right up to fire forearms! The fans rally, Storm just shrugs those off! AZM runs to RAM Storm but Storm still laughs! AZM runs and RAMS Storm again, Storm chuckles this time. AZM fakes a punch to stomp Storm’s foot! AZM runs, but Storm follows and runs AZM over! The fans cheer but then AZM kips right up!

AZM ducks ‘n’ dodges, trips Storm then keeps moving, PENALTY KICK! Basement dropkick! The fans fire up as AZM kips up again! AZM pushes Storm around, steps on her, and the ref counts. AZM steps away at 4, the fans rally up, and AZM runs to DOUBLE STOMP! Cover, ONE!! Storm toughs it out and the fans rally as AZM goes to the apron. AZM climbs, Storm DECKS her!

AZM endures, so Storm shifts to a chinlock, but AZM still fights! ROPEBREAK! The ref counts, Storm lets go at 4, and she paces around AZM. Storm stomps AZM, drags her up, and Collision returns to single picture as Storm stomps AZM in a corner. Storm pie faces AZM, taunts her, but AZM rises. The fans fire up as AZM fires forearms! Storm ROCKS AZM in return! AZM fires another forearm, Storm ROCKS her again! AZM fires more forearms, then blocks a kick to ROUNDHOUSE!

AZM runs, but Storm HEADBUTTS! But AZM returns to LA MYSTICA! Then BUZZSAW! Both women are down and the fans fire up! AZM sits up first, brings Storm up, and then runs, but Storm CHOKES her!

Storm survives and AZM can’t believe it! AZM fires herself back up, reels Storm in, but Storm wrenches out to SKY HIGH! Cover, TWO!! Storm throws a fit then storms around. Storm drags AZM up, waistlocks, but AZM fights!

AZM grabs ropes, Storm drags her back, but AZM arm-drags free! Step over, and AZM SUSHI ROLL! TWO!! Storm escapes, blocks the buzzsaw, then waistlocks to GERMAN SUPLEX!! 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. Bryan might as well just expect not to walk out on his own. One last message has been sent, but now it’s time to put up or shut up! Will the Protostar & Powerhouse pulverize the BCC?

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
