FTR VS Claudio Castagnoli & Wheeler Yuta!

Cash Wheeler & Dax Harwood are back in action after promising to fight back to the top. However, they’re already running into quite the obstacle as The Swiss Superman & The Decoder are back together. Will the ROH Pure Champion help Claudio topple the #TopGuys? Or will the BCC and AEW have to #FearTheReturn?

The teams sort out and Yuta starts against Cash, Wheeler VS Wheeler! The two circle, tie up, and Cash waistlocks to SLAM Yuta down. Cash floats to a headlock but Yuta fights up to his feet. Yuta powers Cash to a knee and then pops out to headlock back. Cash powers up and out, things speed up, and Cash hurdles to then arm-drag! Yuta arm-drags in return! Then Yuta DROPKICKS! The fans fire up as Cash backs off. Cash talks it over with Dax, then resets with Yuta. They feel things out, Yuta avoids getting cornered, so Dax tags in. So Yuta tags Claudio! The fans fire up as these two circle. The fans chant for “BALD! BALD! BALD!” in reference to the matching hairstyles.

Claudio and Dax tie up, go around, and end up on ropes. Dax puts Claudio in a corner, Claudio turns things around, but the ref calls for the break. Both men let off slowly, and Claudio smooths Dax’s bald head before smoothing his own. The fans cheer and Dax laughs that off. Cash shares his hair with Dax, then Dax and Claudio reset. They feel things out, Claudio gets around to waistlock, but Dax drops to move around. Claudio almost gets him but Dax gets up to wrench and wrench. Claudio goes for a sleeper but Dax turns around. They fight for suplex control but end up on ropes. The ref counts the break, both men let off, but Dax shoves Claudio!

The fans boo the chippy nature but Claudio shrugs it off. The two tie up again, end up on ropes, and then Claudio UPPERCUTS! Dax flops out of the ring while fans are torn. Cash regroups with Dax, Yuta backs Claudio up, and the teams settle down. Dax returns, he and Claudio circle, and they tie up. They go around, Dax puts Claudio in a corner, then lets off slowly. Dax CHOPS Claudio, and Claudio does feel that one! Claudio nods and storms up to tie up with Dax. They end up in another corner, and Claudio CHOPS!

Time Limit Draw

The fans can’t believe it! This isn’t the first time FTR and a form of the BCC have done this! Dax gets a mic and says hey, BCC are fighters, and FTR sure are fighters, so how about fire more minutes? The fans love the sound of that! Yuta sure wants it, but out comes Brandon Cutler. He says hold on, hold on. He is here on behalf of our EVPs, Matthew & Nicholas Jackson, and has the contract for this match. It says 20 minutes, no more. So sorry to be a stickler for rules, but it says 20, not 21, not 25, just 20. So their request- Claudio trips Cutler! GIANT SWING for the Young Bucks’ rule monkey! DROPKICK!!

Then Claudio CATAPULTS Cutler into the SHATTER MACHINE!! Well, we didn’t get a definitive winner in this match, but Claudio gets the mic. Claudio knows Cutler ruined the fun, and they won’t shake hands because that’s too cliche. But hey, anytime, anywhere they to do this again, FTR is on. The fans fire up for that, when and where will we see Dax & Cash run it back with Claudio & Yuta?

 

Backstage interview with Kyle O’Reilly.

Lexy Nair is with #CombatKyle and notes that tonight in the main event, and for the very first time 1v1, it will be O’Reilly VS Orange Cassidy. Kyle says yeah, and Dynamite was the first time they even collided. But Kyle can see why Cassidy is the face of this company, why he’s the MVP of AEW. He put the International Championship on the map! But then Roderick Strong shouts at “KYYYLE~!” Roddy steps in, The Kingdom with him, and says here’s what is going on. Ever since Kyle returned, he’s look good. Not great, but good. It just seems like Kyle takes one step forward and two steps back. It’s like… Something is missing. Or perhaps someone?

Roddy says that isn’t the only reason he’s here. He knows Kyle has the big main event match, and Roddy wants Kyle to know The Kingdom is rooting for him. And uh, Roddy’s beat Orange twice, so if Kyle needs advice, Roddy’s your man. Kyle says yeah, he “appreciates” the offer, but they’ve been through this before. Their support means a lot, but he doesn’t need it. Roddy says just remember what Kyle said when he returned. Roddy leaves it at that, will Kyle’s words come back to haunt him?

 

Kris Statlander w/ Stokely Hathaway VS Robyn Renegade!

As “Big Stoke” puts it, it’s #StaturdayNight, as The Galaxy’s Greatest Traitor is now all about herself and no one else. Will Kris take over AEW stat? Or will she be unable to handle this Renegade?

The bell rings and the fans rally up. The two tie up, go around, and Kris puts Renegade in the corner. Kris UPPERCUTS, then snapmares Robyn with force. Robyn gets up but Kris RAMS her into the other corner! Kris RAMS in again and again, lets off as the ref counts to whip right back into the corner! Robyn falls, the fans boo, but Stokely applauds as Kris flexes. Kris eggs Robyn on, then fakes a punch to KICK and LARIAT! The fans boo more but Kris sees Robyn go to a corner. Kris runs corner to corner but blocks a boot! “Nice try!” Kris gets Robyn up, Robyn fights with fists and gets free. But Kris blocks a shot to ROCK Robyn!

Kris then drags Robyn around, lifts, and SITOUT BOMBS! Robyn flounders, Kris hauls her right back up and gut wrenches. Tuck and FIGHT NIGHT FEVER! Cover, Kris wins!

Winner: Kris Statlander, by pinfall

Kris does push-ups to show off, Stat’s stats are off the charts! Stokely steps into the ring to say, “This woman standing next to me, she’s an inspiration! She’s my muse! She’s the reason I get up in the morning. And you wanna know why? Because I wish I had the swift of Kris Statlander. I wish I had the speed of Kris Statlander! I wish I had the intensity of Kris Statlander! And I wish I could decimate an entire division with the snap of my fingers, just like Kris Statlander! Which brings me to my next point at hand.” Earlier today, Stokely talked with his close, personal friend, Tony Khan. And for the first time ever, they were on the same page!

Because Stoke told TK that Kris is the past, present AND future of AEW! And also, that Kris Statlander is going to make history! She will be the first woman to have ever won the TBS Championship and the AEW Women’s World Championship! And he’s sure people are wondering how she’s gonna do that, and Stoke is gonna tell you. She makes history again by entering the 2024 Women’s Owen Hart Foundation Cup! Kris will win that, go to Wembley, beat whoever is champion, hold that AEW Women’s World title up high, and there is no one, and Stoke means NO ONE that can stop her! Will Kris’s stats be astronomical after pulling off such an achievement?

 

Backstage interview with Willow Nightingale.

Lexy finds the Babe with The Power just as she’s entering the building, and asks her her reaction to Stokely announcing Kris’ entering the Women’s Owen Hart Cup. Willow says that’s interesting. As last year’s Owen Cup winner, it is only fitting that she announces her own entry. Willow tells Stat that she hopes to see her in the tournament. Then what is Willow doing here tonight? Oh, just keeping an eye on the action. Willow heads out, will these former friends fight over who heads for Wembley?

 

Dustin Rhodes VS Johnny TV w/ Taya Valkyrie!

If there’s anyone who knows about being #TVReady, it’s The Natural. Dustin has been part of FIVE DIFFERENT DECADES of pro-wrestling, and he doesn’t look to be done yet! Will Dustin show Jonny a thing or two about a thing or two? Or will Dustin be taking a ride on Starship Pain all the way to Slam Town?

The bell rings and Johnny tells the fans to shut up about Dustin. They tie up, Dustin puts Johnny in a corner, but Johnny blocks the haymaker! Johnny wrenches, kicks low, then fires body shots! Johnny ROCKS Dustin, ROCKS him again, but Dustin UPPERCUTS! And UPPERCUTS again! And then he DECKS Johnny! Dustin headlocks, Johnny powers up and out, but Dustin runs him over! Things keep moving, Johnny hurdles and Dustin tumbles! Dustin rolls through that to roll out and hang out with Taya! The fans cheer, and then Dustin spooks Taya with a bark. But Johnny SLIDES out, gets between Dustin and Taya, only for Dustin to CANNONBALL!

The fans fire up with Dustin as he wipes out Mr. TV! Taya says, “How dare you!” Dustin stands Johnny up to CHOP! Dustin puts Johnny in, glares at Taya and Taya says she didn’t say anything. Dustin walks over to her, Taya says he is just a disgusting man. Johnny DIVES and takes Dustin out! Taya applauds, Johnny gets Dustin up and SMACKS him off steel steps! Taya talks trash and mockingly cheers Dustin. The fans actually cheer Dustin, but Johnny & Taya stand on him while they make out! Who’s disgusting? The fans boo, Taya & Johnny stop sucking face, and Collision goes picture in picture.

Johnny steps down so he can stand Dustin up. Johnny ROCKS Dustin, reels him in, and then APRON COMPLETE SHOTS! Dustin flounders into the ring, Johnny stalks him and clamps on a chinlock. Dustin endures, Taya mocks the fans again, but the fans still rally for Dustin. Johnny shifts his grip but Dustin fights up to fire body shots. Johnny ROCKS Dustin then DECKS him! Johnny stomps Dustin, then runs to SHINING WIZARD! Johnny goes back for another kiss from Taya, then stalks Dustin again. Johnny KICKS Dustin, SUPERKICKS him, then grins as he paces. Taya taunts the fans and Johnny goes back for more. Johnny wants a Spider-Man kiss!

Taya kisses Johnny while he’s upside-down, but Dustin drags Johnny back in! CATAPULT into ropes! Johnny suffers for his love, and Collision goes to break.

Collision returns and both men rise up as the fans rally. Dustin hits first, but Johnny hits back! The haymakers go back and forth, with the fans behind Dustin. Dustin rebounds to UPPERCUT! Johnny ROCKS Dustin, fires fast hands, then hits low! Johnny kicks, runs, but then steals the RHODES- NO! Dustin won’t let Johnny use his move! Dustin UPPERCUTS Johnny, kicks, and RHODES UPPERCUTS! Dustin runs side to side, BOOT then BULLDOG! The fans fire up as Johnny staggers around. Dustin CLOBBERS Johnny, CLOBBERS him again, and the fans fire up! Dustin runs but Johnny BOOTS back!

Johnny runs up, but into a SNAP POWERSLAM! Cover, TWO! Johnny stays in this but Dustin drags him up. Dustin reels Johnny in, but Johnny wrenches out to kick and MOONLIGHT DRIVE! Cover, TWO!! Dustin survives and Taya is upset but Johnny keeps his cool. The fans rally up for Dustin, but Johnny Alabama Lifts! But Dustin grabs ropes to deny the slam! The ref counts, Johnny yanks Dustin free, but Dustin turns this into a DESTROYER! The fans are thunderous and Dustin sets Johnny up in the ropes! The ref reprimands, Taya says don’t! Taya gets up but she distracts the ref! SHATTERED DREAMS!!

Dustin reels Johnny in for the CROSS RHODES!! Cover, but Taya helps with the ROPEBREAK! The fans boo as the ref totally missed that! Dustin tells Taya to stop it! Taya says Dustin can’t do nothing! But he blocks the slap! The ref then EJECTS Taya!! The fans fire up as Mrs. TV freaks out! Dustin hurries in but Johnny LOW BLOWS Dustin! Then ROUNDHOUSES!! Cover, TWO!!! Dustin survives but Johnny hurries to drag him around! Johnny rains down forearms to keep Dustin in the drop zone. The fans boo as Johnny KNEES Dustin down! Johnny KNEES Dustin again, and again! Johnny goes up, STARSHIP FLOP!!

The fans fire up as Dustin dodges, then he gives a SHINING WIZARD back! Dustin hurries to suplex Johnny, FINAL RECKONING!! Cover, Dustin wins!

Winner: Dustin Rhodes, by pinfall

Johnny & Taya tried to take this away from Dustin, but it was only natural that the good guy wins in the end! Dustin gets a mic to say, “Oh God, I’m getting old.” The fans assure him, “You Still Got It!” Dustin thanks them, and says this doesn’t happen a lot for him after a match. He has two things to talk about tonight. One: the fans themselves. For almost 40 YEARS, the fans have not abandoned him. He thanks them for accepting him, turning on their TVs to watch him entertain them. He loves and appreciates them all. Dustin also thanks the talent in the back, the production crew, and Tony Khan for all the support right now. And that includes these cameramen.

These are the best cameramen in the business, they’re all number one. But the second thing, and the most important thing, and it really pisses him off… But Dustin wants to talk about the one they call “Scapegoat” Jack Perry. The fans boo that name. Dustin tells Jack that when he left, AEW did miss him. The fans are a bit torn on that. But when Jack came back, they were happy to see him. And what’d he do? Jack attacked Dustin’s boss! The man who pays them their money! The man who gave Jack his second chance! Jack disgusts Dustin. Jack joins up with The Elite? C’mon, man…

And lately, Jack’s been talking about sacrifice. Jack’s sacrifices for this business. Let Dustin tell you something, boy! Jack was born with a silver spoon in his mouth! He’s never worked a day in his GADDAM LIFE! Sacrifice? Sacrifice is losing your job, being handed a watch, and a computer took your job. Then you pick up two jobs just to make ends meet, and the money’s still less somehow! THAT is sacrifice! But for 37 YEARS, Dustin has sacrificed for family, the most important thing in his life! “Jack, to put it simply, you ain’t sacrificed S*IT!!”

When Dustin first met little Jack, they took a picture, and Dustin thought, “What a cool kid.” But knowing what he knows now, Dustin can’t see anything other than a spoiled brat. So listen up very carefully, Jack. The reason Jack is mediocre right now is because he’s not a leader but a follower! Jack’s always been a follower! And if Jack’s not a leader, which he sure as Hell ain’t, then as his dad would say, the view never changes! The fans cheer for “DUSTY! DUSTY!” and Dustin looks to Heaven. Dustin then tells Jack, “You and I have a match this Wednesday on Dynamite. Jack… I am going to DESTROY your little punk ass!

“You can’t beat me fair and square, and I’ll mark my whole career on that! And this Wednesday night, when it’s all over and you’re laying in a pile of heap, you will never forget my name! The Natural, Dustin Rhodes!” The fans are all fired up for that! Will Dustin teach Jack Perry all about #HardTimes?

 

AEW hears from Zack Sabre Jr.

“AEW fans rejoice. You’re listening to the dulcet tones of Zack Sabre Jr. Now we are fast approaching that magical time of the bloody year, The Naughty Door. And it would not be complete without the greatest technical wrestler in the world, Zed S J. And this year, I’m returning for unfinished business. Freshly Squeezed Orange Bollocks, you’ve got the juicy bits. You get your ass to New York, June 30th, Forbidden Door. I’ll see you there, darling.” The Submission Master wants to settle the score with Cassidy, will he make Cassidy #JustTapOut?

 

The Premier Athletes w/ Mark Sterling VS Trip Jordy & Dante Leon!

Tony Nese & Ariya Daivari tried to make a fool out of Hook, but Samoa Joe was the only reason Hook didn’t make ground beef out of them. Will the Premier Athletes prove they’ve got what it takes to back up their talk?

The teams- NEVERMIND, Nese & Daivari just attack! The bell rings, Nese whips Dante to a corner, he and Daivari mug him! The fans boo, Nese & Daivari let off. Trip runs up but is sent into Dante, and they both get mugged! Nese & Daivari TOSS Trip out, then Daivari gets Dante for the LION’S LARIAT! Nese TOSSES Dante out, but Trip returns! Daivari bucks the O’Conner, Nese gets him with a PREMIER DRIVER! Cover, Premier Athletes win!

Winners: The Premier Athletes, by pinfall

Sterling raises his guys’ hands in victory, but needless to say, the guys they faced aren’t anything close to Hook & Joe. Will the Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil & The Samoan Submission Specialist be much more than just a workout for Nese & Daivari?

 

Scorpio Sky speaks.

“I’ve been listening. And I hear you. There’s a gap in this company. You feel it. One by one, all of your heroes have fallen. Who else do you got? They say an open hand is not as strong as a closed fist. Now is the time for us to come together. And standing on the backs of those fallen heroes, we can reach the stars. I will be your hero. I will be your voice. And eventually, I will be your champion. Because I’m here for you.” Scorpio smiles, but not for long. Will he come through on his promise to win it all “for us?”

 

Toni Storm w/ Mariah May & Luther VS Lady Frost!

The Leading Lady told us last night that she is going to turn up the heat, and things are certainly heating up as Mariah is finding herself stuck between her two mentors. Will the AEW Women’s World Champion stay sharp as she prepares for Mina Shirakawa? Or will Frost be so cold that she earns her own shot at the gold?

The bell rings and the fans rally as the two circle. They tie up, Storm arm-drags then poses. The fans cheer but Frost stays cool. Frost and Storm reset, circle, and tie up. Frost blocks an arm-drag, so Storm wrenches to a wristlock instead. Frost cartwheels then arm-drags back! The fans cheer as Storm goes to a corner. Storm is flustered but she resets with Frost. They circle again, tie up, and Frost wrenches to knuckle locks, then a spin and cording hold. Storm powers her way out to wrench and wristlock. Frost moves around, rolls, but Storm wrenches again. Storm whips, Frost reverses then says FREEZE! So Storm poses!

The fans cheer, Frost is flustered but she trips Storm! Things speed up, Frost ducks ‘n ‘dodges to handspring and RANA! Storm tumbles out of the ring, Frost fakes a plancha! Frost then mule kicks, then ASAI MOONSAULTS! The fans fire up while Mariah checks on Storm. Frost has her step aside, and Collision goes picture in picture.

Luther helps Storm up while Mariah distracts Frost, and Storm is safe in the ring! Frost is annoyed but she hurries back in. Frost brings Storm around to CHOP! Storm staggers away, Frost storms up on her and CHOPS again! They go to a third corner, but Storm avoids the chop to CHOP in return! Storm brings Frost around to CHOP again! Frost drops to her knees, but Storm gets her up to snap suplex! Cover, TWO! Storm brushes her stinging chest to then get Frost up. Frost throws body shots, but Storm ROCKS her! Storm snapmares Frost for a HIP ATTACK! And another HIP ATTACK! And then a wind up and HIP ATTACK!

Storm drags Frost up, whips her to a corner, then CHOPS! Storm reels Frost in for a BACKBREAKER! Cover, TWO! Frost stays in this but Storm stays on her. Storm has the arms for a motorcycle stretch! Frost endures, fights up, but Storm shifts to a full nelson! Storm thrashes Frost around, Frost fights up, but Storm TOSSES her! Storm stalks Frost to a corner, bumps her off buckles, then stomps a mudhole in. Storm CHOPS Frost, swaggers to the far corner, and Collision returns to single picture. Storm poses for her close up, then runs up, but Frost avoids the hips! Frost runs corner to corner to handspring CANNONBALL into only buckles!

Storm hurries back in, SWEET HIP MUSIC! Cover, TWO!! Storm is shocked that her second take didn’t do it! Storm gets Frost up but Frost switches. Frost pushes to ropes but Storm bucks the O’Conner! SKY- VICTORY ROLL! TWO!! Frost ROUNDHOUSES Storm, then cartwheels into the Alabama Lift, CHILLA DRILLA!! Cover, TWO?!? Storm survives Frost’s best shot! The fans fire up, Frost puts Storm in a drop zone. Frost goes up but Storm trips her up! Storm then brings Frost into a DRAPING BACKSTABBER! Storm gets Frost up, Frost trips Storm to a jackknife, TWO! Storm hurries for the SKY HIGH! Cover, TWO!

The fans rally as Frost goes to a corner. Storm runs in, but into an ELBOW! Frost BOOTS back, runs and cartwheels to Alabama Lift again! But Storm turns that into a STORM ZERO!! Cover, Storm wins!

Winner: Toni Storm, by pinfall

The Summer heat was too much for Frost and Storm stands tall! Mariah sits with Storm and Storm has a mic. Storm tells Mariah that she knows Mariah has been having a tough time recently. In a few weeks time, Storm faces Mariah’s former tag partner, Mina Shirakawa. Storm knows this is awkward for Mariah, but Mariah must know, Storm loves her so very much. Storm is just so proud of Mariah, and she should have all the same opportunities as Storm did. But Storm didn’t have someone looking out for her, and that is what Storm is going to be for Mariah. So as AEW Women’s World Champion, Storm is DEMANDING that Mariah be entered into the Women’s Owen Hart Cup!

The fans cheer and Mariah is honored! Storm vows to be there every step of the way, they’ll get through this together. No matter what happens, remember: chin up; tits out; and watch for the SHOE~! Will Mariah make Storm proud by becoming the 2024 Queen of Harts? Will Storm still have Mariah’s support at Forbidden Door?

 

BREAKING NEWS for next week’s Collision!

As part of the ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY, there will be a TNT Championship Qualifying Match! Lee Moriarty will represent Shane Taylor Promotions against Dante Martin of Top Flight! STP called out the Martins, will Angel Dorado shut them up when he shuts #TAIGASTYLE down? Speaking of…

Backstage interview with Shane Taylor Promotions and Top Flight.

Lexy thanks all six men for agreeing to the No Physicality rule for this. Next week, Lee Moriarty VS Dante Martin is a qualifier for the TNT Championship ladder match. There is a longstanding history between these two, they were once friends training under Matt Sydal. Dante says that is true. Another fact is that Dante was Lee’s first opponent in AEW. Lee has grown leaps and bounds since that day. BUT, the results next week will still be the same. But hey, all in friendly competition, right? Lee says that’s crazy, because the last time they were in the ring together, Lee won that! So what makes Dante think that when the stakes are this high, it’ll be any different?

Shane says he appreciates this history lesson and all, but that’s all it was: history, the past. Just like their friendship. Now Lee is rolling with the baddest fight team in all of AEW. You think Dante can outwrestle one of the best technical wrestlers in the game today? What Top Flight does barely counts as wrestling, they’re just glorified stuntmen! The only one out of the three with any heart is Action Andretti! Action isn’t sure why he got singled out, but Shane says next week, we see who can really rumble. Tensions are running high, and it’s headed for a Collision next week. Who makes it through to head for The Forbidden Door?

 

Samoa Joe & Hook speak.

Joe asks “Speak ‘n’ Spell” what’s good, is this working? Katsuyori Shibata via Google Translate says yes, relax, he’s got the camera. Okay, follow them. This trio goes down the hall and Joe asks about lacrosse. Is that some sport y’all just invented? What? That’s like the oldest sport in North America. Oh, a game that’s half hockey and half soccer is somehow the oldest sport in America? Yeah, bro, older than both. Huh. Joe then walks up to a door, asks if Hook’s ready, and Hook says let’s get it. Joe slides the door open, and asks The Premier Athletes, “What’s up, boys?” Hook & Joe jump Daivari & Nese while Sterling shouts for help!

Joe tells Sterling to shut up, then throws him down! Joe tells Sterling to look at him! Hook, you watch this, too, because it’s important. Sterling opens his eyes while trembling, and Joe tells Sterling to remember who did this to them. Joe shoves Sterling down, he and Hook leave, and Shibata adds, “Next time, it’ll be wrestling.” Joe’s trio of BAMF’s heads out, will they make The Premier Athletes all eat their words?

 

Daniel Garcia VS Tate Mayfairs!

The Red Death returned home to Buffalo to refocus, as well as remember the day everything almost ended for him. Garcia wants after the International Championship, will he prove himself worthy in time for The Forbidden Door? Or will The UK’s (self-proclaimed) Best Wrestler of All Time prove he is worthy of his own international opportunities?

The bell rings and the two tie up. Garcia waistlocks to SLAM Tate, floats all over, then sits on him. The fans cheer, Garcia goes to Oklahoma Roll, TWO! Garcia headlocks, wrenches, wristlocks, but Tate rolls, handsprings, and cartwheels to then arm-drag! But Garcia holds on to drag Tate down! The fans cheer but Tate fights up. Tate spins, powers Garcia to a corner, and the ref counts. Garcia turns things around, but Tate turns them back. Tate body shots, CHOPS, and UPPERCUTS! Tate climbs up to smooth his hair, but the fans boo. Tate FIST DROPS, rolls back, and he soaks up the heat. But then Garcia runs up to CLOBBER Tate!

The fans fire up and Garcia storms up to whip Tate. Garcia ELBOWS Tate down, Tate flounders about, but he uses ropes for defense. Garcia still whips, but Tate blocks to send Garcia into buckles! Tate runs and LARIATS Garcia! Cover, TWO! Tate rains down fists, lets off as the fans boo, but Tate flexes, to then mock Garcia’s dance! Garcia fires off hands, but Tate fires JAB, JAB, JAB and RIGHT! Tate then steps up to ELBOW Garcia, and smooths his hair again. Tate reels Garcia in but Garcia throws knees! Garcia reels Tate in, TWIST ‘N’ SHOUT! Garcia drags Tate up to TWIST ‘N’ SHOUT again! Then a third TWIST ‘N’ SHOUT!

The fans fire up, Garcia runs up, but Tate BOOTS him! Tate runs up, Garcia clamps on but Tate breaks free. Garcia SLAPS Tate, reels him in, SAIDO! Tate flounders around, the fans fire up, and Garcia does his dance! Garcia runs to SHOTGUN Tate down! Garcia reels Tate back in, GUILLOTINE FACELOCK!! Tate fades right out, but then Garcia hits the RED CROSS! Cover, Garcia wins!

Winner: Daniel Garcia, by pinfall

The Dragonslayer is ready to be a #Goatslayer, will he take down whoever the International Champion is come Forbidden Door?

 

AEW takes a closer look at Zeuxis.

Tag team partner to Stephanie Vaquer, a top champion in CMLL, she is the #PuertoRicanPower that punishes all those in her way. She has etched her name into the history books alongside Vaquer, and looks to add to that by taking the TBS Championship from Mercedes Mone. Will CMLL have a Two Woman Power Trip? Or will the CEO keep things as planned for Forbidden Door?

 

MORE BREAKING NEWS for Collision!

Christian Cage is preparing a “Father’s Day Special” so that should be… something. Then The House of Black returns after their brutal Double or Nothing loss to Adam “Edge” Copeland, what will they do to redeem themselves from that Rated R defeat? Plus, Thunder Rosa and Deonna Purrazzo look to finally settle things in a NO DISQUALIFICATION MATCH! Will La Mera Mera or The Virtuosa stand tall in the end?

 

Backstage interview with Orange Cassidy.

Lexy is now with Freshly Squeezed, and says he has the big main event match up next, but she knows a lot has been on his mind lately. We saw that video from ZSJ calling him out, and Cassidy says yes, we did. As if he didn’t have enough to worry about. Cassidy has his match with Kyle tonight, all his friends have left him, having either given him a piledriver on steps or a punch in the face. Every other week for the past two years, it was like everyone wanted to team with him. He had so many friends. Now where’s everyone? All gone, he’s alone. And ZSJ wants to talk Forbidden Door? Cassidy has to get through tonight.

Lexy’s seen Kyle O’Reilly in action, right? And so, for the first time 1v1, Cassidy has Kyle. Cassidy thinks that’s like, now. He has to go, he can’t be here right now. Cassidy heads out, having said the most he’s said perhaps ever in his entire AEW career. Is Freshly Squeezed finally starting to feel the pressure of his star power? Can he hold it together against the Violent Artist?

 

Orange Cassidy VS Kyle O’Reilly!

We heard from both men tonight, and going by how he has The Pixies as his theme and the darker denim jacket on, Orange is in a sour mood. Will he end up bitter after losing tonight? Or will tasting sweet, sweet victory lighten Cassidy’s mood?

Oh and of course, The Undisputed Kingdom makes sure Kyle notices they’re in the crowd for him. The bell rings, Kyle and Cassidy circle.

Cassidy kicks around, the fans rally, and Cassidy less kips free and more scoots free. The fans cheer as Cassidy flops to the ropes. Kyle sits down and waits on Cassidy.

Kyle reclines back, leg guard up, and dares Cassidy to go for the groin. Cassidy isn’t so sure about that, but Kyle stays facing him no matter where Cassidy goes.

They stand, Kyle powers up and out but Cassidy slips around to hit another headlock and takeover! The fans cheer this technical exchange, then they rally up and duel.

Cassidy flails, reaches out, but Kyle rolls him back! But Cassidy rolls through, gets the wrists, and he uses ZSJ’s EURO CLUTCH! TWO!! Kyle escapes, but then Cassidy puts hands up! Kyle stops him from putting them in pockets! Cassidy still tires, but Kyle fights those off! Kyle uses a shoulder to block one, then clinches! Cassidy fights to reach for his pants, but Kyle still holds the arms up! So Cassidy puts his hands together and slips out the bottom! The fans cheer as Cassidy gives a lazy thumbs up! Cassidy then ducks the buzzsaw! Hands up, and in pockets! The fans cheer but Kyle is annoyed. Kyle whips, Cassidy rolls then hurdles, then MONKEY FLIPS!

Cassidy kips up, but Kyle KICKS, SLAPS, KNEES and KICKS! LEG SWEEP!  The Kingdom is all fired up for Kyle, and Kyle KICKS Cassidy in the back! Kyle drags Cassidy up, wrenches an arm, and hits an ELBOW BREAKER! Kyle whips Cassidy to a corner, Cassidy goes up and out, ducks a shot and bumps Kyle off buckles! And off more buckles! Then back the other way, but Kyle HOTSHOTS the arm! Kyle gets a leg now, DRAPING DRAGON SCREW! Cassidy falls, Kyle goes out and he brings Cassidy around. Kyle SLAMS the leg on the edge! Then he DECKS Cassidy with a forearm! SLAM the leg, DECK Cassidy!

The Kingdom cheers and that just annoys and confuses Kyle. Roddy whispers something to Kyle, perhaps one of his “secrets” to defeating Cassidy? But then Cassidy storms up to ROCK Kyle! And again! Kyle gets the leg, DRAGON SCREW and Cassidy is sent into the barriers! The Kingdom fires up, the ref checks Cassidy, but Kyle storms up on Cassidy.

Winner: Orange Cassidy, by pinfall

The Kingdom cannot believe it! Cassidy was combat ready and grits it out against Kyle in their first 1v1 encounter ever. Cassidy gives a thumbs up to Kyle out of respect, but Kyle seems a bit frustrated with himself. WAIT, Trent Beretta & Kyle Fletcher slide in! Trent CLOBBERS Cassidy!! The fans boo, and Kyle sees this as the Don Callis Family mugs Cassidy! Kyle says hell no, and he storms back in! Kyle fires off on Fletcher! But then Trent CLOBBERS Kyle! The DCF beat down Kyle & Cassidy, why isn’t The Kingdom doing anything to help their “friend?” And then Trent puts Cassidy in the SNAKE BITE!!

Fletcher stomps away on O’Reilly, it’s Kyle on Kyle violence! BUT WAIT! Kris slides in! Kris taps Trent on the shoulder and he lets off. They shake hands, they’re still friends. The fans boo as Kris then sits Cassidy up, but he’s dead weight! But here comes WILLOW! Willow slides in, Kris runs away! The Babe with the Power warned Kris that they’ll see each other soon enough. But will Willow and Cassidy have to watch each other’s backs if they want a fair shake against Kris and Trent?


My Thoughts:

A great Collision, with some real story development here. Kris of course beats Renegade and I do like her getting in the Women’s Owen Hart Cup. Good stuff with the new tron and Stokely’s promos, too. Willow also had a good promo in response, and we should’ve of course seen how things would go at the end of tonight. Awesome main event from Cassidy VS O’Reilly, with good stuff from The Kingdom ringside the whole time. Great win for Cassidy, and then of course Trent attacks with back-up from Fletcher. Kris also looks to add on, but good counter from Willow. I was expecting a Mixed Tag, maybe we get a Mixed Six if they want Kyle and Kyle included. Chances are, one of the Kyles takes the loss, maybe The Kingdom screws around to keep it protected.

The opening tag match of FTR VS Claudio & Yuta was awesome stuff as far as action, and pulling a time limit draw was fine. Cutler showed up to mouth off on behalf of the EVPs so him getting beat up was fun. Maybe the BCC become allies to FTR against The EVPs? The Acclaimed is already gunning for the tag titles as it is, could something really big be in the works? Good squash win for Nese & Daivari, and I really liked Joe, Hook and supposedly Shibata jumping them in the locker room. Pretty sure we get a Six Man Tag, where Nese, Daivari & Josh Woods take on Joe, Hook & Shibata. Could be a way to build Joe, Hook & Shibata as a trio before taking on Bang Bang Gang.

Very good promo from Shane Taylor Promotions and Top Flight. The way Shane’s putting Action over, could STP be trying to recruit him away from Top Flight? Either way, Lee VS Dante is going to be really good stuff next week, either man is a great choice for the ladder match. Garcia VS Tate was really good but really quick because of course Garcia was gonna win. Garcia being from Buffalo, New York, I am very sure they’ll give him an International Championship match for Forbidden Door, and he could possibly even win the title. Garcia needs something, this would be the right spot if Ospreay is staring down double duty between the International title defense and challenging for the AEW World title.

Very good match from Storm and Frost, and good win for Storm. Her little promo with Mariah to put her in the Women’s Owen Hart Cup was good, but this is definitely setting things up for Storm VS Mariah in Wembley. Mariah could help Storm retain the title at Forbidden Door, then shockingly betray her on the build to All In. That would be some wild stuff after all these months of Mariah being a loyal protege. And then great stuff with Dustin VS Johnny TV. Great win for Dustin, and a great promo from him calling out Jack Perry. Dustin VS Jack is going to be great stuff, and could even be how Jack earns his way into the TNT Championship match, just as I was sensing on Wednesday.

My Score: 8.8/10

Christian Cage speaks.

“Welcome to Collision. Welcome to the one year anniversary of Collision. That’s right, it’s been 365 days since I singlehandedly put this show on the map when I won the TNT Championship int he very first episode, and went on a run with the TNT Championship that will never, ever be seen again.

And in the spirit of usual unpredictability, on the eve of the most important holiday of the year, Father’s Day, I guarantee you, Christian Cage’s Collision is going to end up being… very special.” Just what does The Patriarch have in mind for “his” show?

 

8 Man Tag: The Blackpool Combat Club VS Rocky Romero, Lio Rush & TMDK!

Jon Moxley is still IWGP World Heavyweight Champion, Wheeler Yuta is still ROH Pure Champion, and both Bryan Danielson & Claudio Castagnoli are still bad, bad men! The BCC is looking to still be the baddest group around, but will they be rolling on towards Forbidden Door? Or will Azucar, The Bad Child and the NEW Undisputed NJPW Tag Team Champions prove they’re just a little bit badder?

Claudio powers Lio around to TOSS into the DEATH RIDER!! Cover, BCC wins!

Winners: Blackpool Combat Club, by pinfall

The BCC defend homefield in AEW, and we’re just two weeks away from Forbidden Door! Moxley then gets the mic to say, “Tetsuya Naito of NJPW is a survivor, but The Forbidden Door is the final conflict. This is it. This is your last chance. I’m not coming to beat you,  Naito. I’m not coming to defend the IWGP Championship. I’m coming to Forbidden Door to put an end to Tetsuya Naito once and for all! Naito, I’m coning to Forbidden Door to finish you, to finish your career, to put you in a pine box, to put you in the ground, and to BURY your ass once and for all!!” A powerful ultimatum with still two weeks to go, will the Maniac also be the man that retires Naito?

 

Tony Schiavone is in the ring.

Youngstown, Ohio, please welcome The Acclaimed & Billy Gunn! The fans fire up as Max Caster, Anthony Bowens & Daddy Ass make their way to the ring. Schiavone lets Caster have the mic, and he says usually the Acclaimed comes out here with a rap, some punchlines, but tonight, if you didn’t see, but the “love” EVPs, the Young F’s…! Well, those guys issued a $5 THOUSAND FINE on them for disparaging company executives!? There was a tweet about it! Seems these EVPs are outta touch with the fans! Youngstown confirms!

Caster says the fans don’t want a couple of women’s business suit wearing a-holes! They want Platinum Max roasting everyone! They want Bowens & Billy hitting the scissor fingers, and you bet they want The Acclaimed to become the NEW AEW World Tag team Champions! And if Bowens was The Bucks, he wouldn’t focus the pettiness on raps and tweets, but on the fact that they will be face to face with The Acclaimed for the first time in four years. And this isn’t the same team they faced before in 2020. They are not an upstart! They have the same exact accolades as The Bucks do! Scissor King, Platinum Max, FORMER AEW World Tag Team Champions, FORMER AEW World Trios Champions, the WINNINGEST team in the history of AEW!!

And all they have to get the titles back is beat The Bucks twice. So do your worst! FINE them, but all they want is to get those titles back, get this company back, and prove that EVERYONE loves The Acclaimed! In fact, forget fines! Take those fines, stick ’em up your virgin asses, because everyone here is gonna kick it old school for you! YO! YO! YO! LISTEN~! But then someone says NOOOO~! And it’s Brandon Cutler! He tells The Acclaimed to listen! This one year anniversary of Collision is to be a night of praise for the EVPs! They’ve carried this show since day one! But these limp noodles use their public platform to disparage!

So if they want a fine? FINE! Here’s a $10 THOUSAND fine! Then it’ll be $15- Christopher Daniels comes out here to stop Cutler. The Acclaimed had Daniels’ back, so here’s some good news. Tony Khan has REVERSED the fines, they get their money back! And Cutler, we don’t need to hear any more from you. But Cutler shows his clipboard to Daniels. Daniels SMACKS Cutler with the clipboard! Then DECKS him with his fist! Daniels TOSSES Cutler in for The Acclaimed to handle! They trip him up, hold him open, and Bowens goes up to say, SCISSOR ME TIMBERS~! Cutler crawls away in shame, but will The Bucks make sure The Acclaimed pay for that on Wednesday?

 

No Disqualifications: Thunder Rosa VS Deonna Purrazzo!

La Mera Mera tried to be an ally to The Virtuosa against their common enemy, but the only thing they had in common was that they wanted to be the one to take down Toni Storm. That made them into enemies, and it has escalated to this! With nothing holding these two back, who stops at nothing to make sure the other regrets ever showing up in AEW?

Deonna doesn’t wait, she attacks while Rosa’s on the corner! The bell rings and Deonna puts Rosa in the Tree of Woe. Deonna runs in, but Rosa sits up! Deonna slides out of the ring, and Rosa CROSSBODIES down onto her! Rosa fires off hands, then POSTS Deonna! The fans rally behind Rosa and she CHOPS Deonna against the apron. Rosa SMACKS Deonna off the steel steps, then off them again, and then again! Rosa stands on Deonna, Deonna pushes her away, and Rosa starts bringing out stuff from under the ring! A chain, a trash can, and the lid! Rosa SMACKS Deonna with the lid! And then pushes the lid into Deonna with a boot!

The fans want tables but Rosa runs up first. Deonna dodges, Rosa dropkicks the steps! Deonna drags Rosa up, puts an arm between steps and post, then BOOTS the steps! Rosa falls back, clutching the elbow! Deonna snarls, goes looking under the ring, and she brings out a kendo stick! Deonna throws that all the way over the ring, but she gets some chairs. Deonna wedges a chair in a corner, then gets Rosa up. Rosa reverses the whip but Deonna stops herself! Deonna kicks and whips, but Rosa stops. Rosa ELBOWS Deonna, fireman’s carries, then DEATH VALLEY DRIVERS! Cover, TWO! Deonna stays in this but Rosa goes looking for more!

Rosa brings out a TABLE! Youngstown cheers as Rosa gets that big thing up, only for Deonna to DROPKICK it into her! The fans boo but Deonna soaks up the heat, and Collision goes picture in picture.

Deonna drags the table up for herself, and she puts that in the ring. Deonna drags Rosa up, wrenches, then kicks Rosa. Deonna hammerlocks an arm before she POSTS Rosa! And then she hammerlocks and POSTS Rosa again! Rosa clutches the side of her face, but there’s no blood, yet. Deonna gets Rosa in the ring, then drags her over to snapmare by the table. Deonna steps over Rosa to trap the arms, then turns her over so she can dribble Rosa’s head onto the wood! Deonna lets off and Rosa flops over. Cover, TWO! Rosa is tougher than that but Deonna keeps her cool as Collision goes to break.

Collision returns and the two fight over a chair. Deonna JAMS Rosa up, takes a swing, but Rosa dodges! Rosa BOOTS the chair into Deonna! Then Rosa grabs the chair to JAM Deonna, and SMACK her on the back! And SMACK her again! Rosa brings Deonna around, fireman’s carries, and SAMOAN DROPS her on the folded table! Cover, TWO! Deonna is still in this but Rosa drags her around to put in a corner. Rosa hoists Deonna up top, goes up after her, but Deonna fights with body shots! Rosa CLUBS Deonna in return, but Deonna slips under! Rosa rains down fists, so Deonna YANKS her into the buckle! CHEEKY NANDOS!

Rosa falls into the Tree of Woe, Deonna runs up and this time, she RAMS into Rosa! Rosa falls out of the Tree, Deonna covers, TWO!! Rosa survives that Spear of Woe or whatever you’d call it, and the fans rally up. Deonna drags Rosa up, slashes her throat, and then Gotch lifts, but Rosa fights that! Rosa wrenches out to FULL METAL DDT!! Cover, TWO!! Deonna survives hitting steel but Rosa won’t let up. Rosa brings Deonna over to a corner, and puts the trash can around her! The fans cheer as Rosa stomps away on Deonna! Deonna sits down, Rosa grabs the table and she brings that around. The fans cheer as it’s finally set up!

Rosa SMACKS the can with the chain! Then Rosa finishes setting the table up, to use it as a ramp! FLYING SHOTGUN into the trash can!! The fans are thunderous for that unique use of a table, and then Rosa covers Deonna, TWO!?!? Deonna survives the savage innovation, but Rosa won’t give up just yet. Rosa completely stands the table up now, but Deonna has a chair! She slide sit at Rosa, the table falls over, but Rosa JAMS Deonna up with it! Rosa reels Deonna in, underhooks, but Deonna fights the package to wrench out! Deonna reels Rosa in, for a KNEELING PILEDRIVER! Cover, TWO!!! Rosa lives and Deonna is stunned!

Deonna clamps onto the arm, FUJIWARA! Rosa reaches out, but ends up in the VENUS DE MILO!!! Rosa reaches with her legs, but Deonna HAMMERS away on her head! Deonna rolls past Rosa to then look around on the outside. She LOW BLOWS a staff member!? Just to CLOBBER Rosa with his camera!!! Deonna shows no mercy to anyone, and she puts Rosa in the ropes! MOTORCYCLE STRETCH IN THE ROPES! Rosa’s out cold, Deonna wins!!

Winner: Deonna Purrazzo, by referee stoppage

That camera shot might as well have been a knockout! But Deonna still gets the win either way. Is Deonna going to move on from Rosa once and for all to then go after a title? Or will Rosa’s revenge not die with one loss?

 

Hechicero w/ The Gates of Agony VS Dalton Castle

Now this is a unique match-up! The Alchemist of Lucha is taking on The Peacock, and… wait are those The Outrunners being Castle’s substitute Boys? Well, uh, Turbo & Truth aside, will Castle be too hot to handle even for the man that summons fire? Or will Hechicero turn this Forbidden Door appetizer into sweet, sweet victory?

The bell rings and the fans fire up as these two get face to face. Hechi shoves Castle, Castle gets serious. They feel things out, tie up, and Hechi facelocks. Castle still powers Hechi to ropes, the ref calls the break, and the two let off clean. Castle gets fired up and eggs Hechi on. Hechi CHOPS, so Castle UPPERCUTS! They fire back and forth, CHOP for forearm, then Castle fires off a flurry! Castle runs, but HEchi follows to CROSSBODY! Hechi slips right into a SLEEPER at the ropes! Hechi shoves Castle away, goes up, and MISSILE DROPKICKS! Cover, TWO! Hechi kicks Castle around and eggs him on.

Hechi CLUBS away on Castle, runs, but Castle wrenches to LARIAT, KNEE, and DDT! The fans fire up as Castle gets a wild look in the eyes. Castle clamps on a half nelson, then CLUBS away on Hechi to get him up. Hechi fights with elbows of his own, but runs into an Alabama Lift! Castle spins, BANGAAA- NO, Hechi slips free, pops Castle up, and has the COBRA CLUTCH STRAITJACKET! Castle flails, pushes back to a cover, TWO! Hechi keeps the body scissors, wants the rear naked choke but Castle rolls. Hechi drags Castle up but Castle arm-drags free! Hechi BOOTS back, swings, but Castle blocks to ELBOW!

Castle snarls, runs, but Hechi follows to LARIAT in the corner! Hechi fires fast hands and a CHOP! Castle sits down, Kaun & Liona like what they see. Hechi powers up but runs into a clinch! EXPLODER! Castle and Hechi both rise, and the fans fire up with Castle! Hechi swings, but into another lift! Hechi sunset flips, TWO!! Castle just manages to escape, and he BOOTS Hechi! Hechi goes to a corner, Castle runs in but Hechi dodge! SHINING WIZARD! Hechi keeps going, LA MYSTICA LEG DROP! Cover, Hechi wins!

Winner: Hechicero, by pinfall

That was some in-ring magic for sure! The Gates of Agony celebrate with their new ally, will they and The Machine, Brian Cage, soon take over AEW and CMLL? But then Hechi beats up on Castle, puts him in a corner, and Liona HIP ATTACKS! Kaun METEORAS! The fans boo, but The Outrunners run in! Only to get CLOBBERED by The Gates… Hechi then feeds Castle to the Gates for the LARIAT SANDWICH! And they CLOSE- NO! Daniel Garcia hurries out here, with a chair! He and Daddy Magic have Castle’s back as they run off Hechi & The Gates! Will even The Alchemist of Lucha fear Red Death?

 

Backstage interview with Dante Martin.

Arkady Aura is with Angel Dorado, as well as his teammates, Darius Martin & Action Andretti. She brings up Dante facing Lee Moriarty in the TNT Championship qualifier. However, everyone else is banned from ringside. Dante says that’s fine, because Top Flight is about friendly competition. He remembers a time when Lee Moriarty was once about that. Darius asks if Dante is running. He’s not. Is he scared? He’s not. Because this is one of the best high-fliers today! High-flying and redeye-ing! Action promises that at Forbidden Door, Dante will be the NEW TNT Champion! But in steps Lio Rush. He says what’s up, long time no see. Good to see he has some new friends.

Not sure if any of them knew this or not, but Lio and Action go way back. That’s true. So as far as Darius, nice to finally meet you. Darius knows who Lio is, and won’t shake his hand. Okay, that’s fine. Just wanted to wish Dante luck tonight. Maybe see them around. Lio heads out, Action says yeah, great seeing him again. Top Flight heads out, but will Dante book him and the boys some golden tickets to Long Island? Or will #TAIGASTYLE make sure Shane Taylor Promotions takes over New York?

 

The Patriarchy is in the ring.

And “Mother” Shayna Wayne asks for everyone’s attention. They boo her? They boo a mother?! How dare you! Shayna demands they all get on their feet right now and pay respect to “the greatest father to ever live,” THEIR Patriarch, Christian Cage. And with that, Captain Charisma makes his way out here. Christian takes the mic and sits in the fancy chair they have for him. “Well, I didn’t exactly have ‘spending the most important holiday of the year’ in The Rust Belt, but here we are.” The fans boo but Christian says Youngstown needs to sit down and shut their mouths while he conducts his business.

Now, he’d be remised if he didn’t acknowledge what today is. Today is the anniversary of his son, Nick Wayne’s biological father passing away. Christian says that can affect a child many different ways. You might wonder why the universe can be so cool. But in a strange way, Nick’s father dying was the best thing that could’ve ever happened to him, because it led him to Christian Cage. The fans boo but Christian says this veiled picture must of course be a gift for him. Did Nick commission this? Nick even has a card! Christian opens it up, and it says Happy Father’s Day. A homemade card from the heart? Should he read it?

“To Dad, You are the greatest TNT Champion in history,m and I can only dream of having half your tlanet, but I will keep striving to prove my worth. Love, Nick.” How thoughtful, Christian appreciates that. And uh, can we unveil the portrait now? Of course! The curtain is taken away, and it’s a failry impressive painting. Did Luchasaurus do this himself? Wow. Then uh, this is… Okay. But Nick’s card is unbelievable! He’s a wordsmith! It’s popping off the paeg! Christian has never been prouder, he will cherish this forever. And uh, Killswitch- The fans chant “LUCHASAURUS!” but he says shut up, he’s Killswitch! Killswitch, why can’t you be more like Nick?

Luchasaurus storms off! The fans cheer but Christian says he wasn’t excused! Get back in line! Christian has something important to say and everyone will want to hear this. Luchasaurus reluctantly stands back by the chair, and Christian says that’s a good looking guy in the picture either way. Now, it is no secret that Double Or Nothing was a couple weeks ago. And Christian clearly fell short in his quest to become AEW World Champion. But what you might not realize is that there is alternate footage clearly showing his shoulder was up! The EVPs want to do the right thing and show this footage, but he politely asked not to show it.

This family does not make excuses here! They just roll up their sleeves and get back to work! Christian vows to one day be World Champion, and that path starts with winning the Trios Championships! That’s right! Christian’s gift to his “sons” is that they will hold titles together. The fans still chant for Luchasaurus but Christian tells them to shut up! Now yes, it is uncommon for the father to give a gift to his children on Father’s Day, but that is what a good father would do. He would give anything to make his children smile. Hey, even Tony Khan’s dad gave him millions upon millions of dollars to start this company!

But here’s the thing, Tony Khan, this very instant, Christian Cage says this is HIS company! He is the greatest, most talked about and influential star in this sport! He will win every accolade until he goes down as THE greatest in history! So Tony, Christian is your father now. They are The Patriarchy, the next Trios Champions, the Faces of TNT, now and forever! Captain Charisma has spoken, but will his declaration become reality?

 

The Bang Bang Gang speaks.

Juice Robinson says it is the one-year anniversary of Collision, and they are the Collision Cowboys, the men who built this brick by brick! Juice broke his back carrying this place! Colten says that as such, they hold a lot of gold. There are a lot of teams gunning for them, but they can’t handle the pressure. House of Black tonight, and now The Patriarchy wants a shot? Yeah, it’s Father’s Day, but you don’t get special privilege. Get in line! Austin adds that House of Black, they’re not sure what’s going on, maybe they’ve been in the dark too long, but open your eyes, dilate the pupils, and uh, notice that Jay White isn’t here.

Tonight is NOT for the titles, but tonight is about proving whether or not if you can hang with the OGs! And if you’re not down with that, they’ve got two words for ya: GUNS UP!

 

TNT Championship Ladder Match Qualifier: Lee Moriarty VS Dante Martin!

As we heard from Dante, these two used to be friends, but ambition seems to have given #TAIGASTYLE a bit of a salty edge. Will Lee use that edge to clip Angel Dorado’s wings? Or will Dante prove that he not only does things the right way, but can win at the same time?

The bell rings, the fans rally as the two circle, and then Lee goes for a leg. Dante steps over, trips Lee, then speeds up. Lee drops, hurdles, but Dante stops to hurdle and drop. Lee handsprings, then shimmies and shakes. The fans cheer and the two reset. Dante and Lee feel things out, and the fans are behind Dante. Lee gives a testing kick, then the two knuckle lock. Lee wrenches, trips Dante, then GROUND DRAGON SCREWS! The fans are torn, but Lee drags Dante around by the leg< Dante kicks free, reaches up, and RANAS! The fans fire up, Dante speeds up, ducks ‘n’ dodges, then jumps to RANA again!

Lee flounders, Dante stays by ropes,. Lee runs up, Dante goes up and over! Lee tumbles out of the ring, Dante builds speed! Dante FLIES, but lands safe as Lee moves aside! Lee thinks he’s safe, but then Dante uses the corner to DROPKICK Lee down! Dante copies the shimmy and then drags Lee up. Dante CHOPS Lee against the railing! The fans fire up for that one, and Dante puts Lee in the ring. Dante then jumps right up to the apron, springboards, but Lee trips him up! Dante tumbles back down and Lee grins. Lee claps and the fans applaud, and Collision goes picture in picture.

Lee waits on Dante, and Dante slides back in. Lee stomps Dante at the ropes again and again and again! Dante writhes, Lee drags him up, then KNEES low. Lee fires m ore knees, then shoves Dante to RAM into him. Lee reels Dante in to HALF HATCH! Roll back and cover, TWO! Lee keeps on Dante with a hammerlock, then traps that arm to go after the other. Dante endures, even as Lee pushes on the arm. Lee twists the fingers and wrist to bend the arm, and then use it as a recliner! Dante endures as Lee gives a thumbs up. Lee then sits back up, to stomp the arm down! Dante writhes, Lee stomps him around, then Lee drags Dante up.

Lee fires more knees into Dante, shoves him, but Dante leaps up and over to sunset flip! TWO, and Lee ROCKS Dante with fast hands! Dante blocks a kick but not the KNEE! Dante sits down, Lee basement dropkicks! Cover, TWO! Lee is annoyed but he clamps onto the arm again. Dante endures, Lee bends the fingers and wrist, to JAM the fingers into the mat! Dante still endures, but Lee clamps on, chinbars, and pushes on the joint. The fans rally, Dante fights, but Lee throws knees to keep him down. Lee pulls on the chinbar but Dante powers up. Collision returns to single picture, and the fans rally as Dante pries free!

Dante arm-drags Lee away, Lee runs up, but Dante BOOTS him! ROLLING ELBOW! Dante ROCKS Lee again, whips, but the bad arm jams up! Lee whips Dante away, runs up, but Dante slips to the outside! Dante ROCKS Lee, springboards to go up and around, but Lee grabs a leg. Dante kicks him away, jumps again and CROSSBODIES! Cover, TWO! Lee survives but Dante stays focused. The fans fire up with Dante as he rises, and Dante reels Lee in. Lee fights the half nelson, so Dante CLUBS away! Lee wrenches free of the waistlock, brings Dante to a knee, and he SNAPS the fingers! What a villain!

Lee gets Dante’s arms tired up, clinches, YOYO URENAGE! Into the BORDER CITY STRETCH!! Dante endures, reaches out, and he crawls with the one free arm! Lee kicks at that arm, but Dante uses a leg for the ROPEBREAK! The fans cheer as Lee lets off, and then Lee brings Dante up! Lee suplexes into a SLAM, then covers, TWO!! Dante escapes that deep tuck and Lee is frustrated. Lee kicks at Dante while they’re both down, then Lee rises up. Lee aims, Dante rises, and Lee runs up, but Dante ducks the kick! JUMP KNEE! Lee wobbles, but he BOOTS back! Lee runs up, into a KNEE from Dante!

Dante goes up, METEORA! Lee is down and the fans fire up as Dante climbs a corner! MAMBA SPLASH!! Cover, Dante wins!

Winner: Dante Martin, by pinfall (advances to Forbidden Door)

And with that, the fourth spot is filled! Dante joins Mark Briscoe, Konosuke Takeshita & Jack Perry, but wait! Shane Taylor & Anthony Ogogo show up to mug Dante! The fans boo as STP are sore losers! BODY SHOT from Ogogo! But here come Darius & Action! They fight with STP but that’s 3v2! Shane DECKS Darius, Ogogo GERMAN SUPLEXES Action! URENAGE for Darius! The fans boo more but STP doesn’t care. Lio Rush hurries out here, he asks what this is all about. Shane dares Lio to bring his little ass in here! Lio does, and he slips under Shane to shove Ogogo into him! Then he schoolboys Ogogo to SPIN KICK!

Shane whips Lio but Lio stops himself at the ropes! Lio eggs Shane on, then DUMPS him out! Lee runs up but Lio TOSSES Him out, and HANDSPRING KICKS Lee into Shane! Lio stands tall with Top Flight, and refs hurry out to stop this from getting any wilder. Will Shane Taylor make sure Lio meets his final hour soon enough? As for Dante and Top Flight, they nod respect to Lio, but still no handshakes. Will Lio just have to give them all time to trust him?

 

Hikaru Shida speaks.

“I have been in AEW since day one. I am a three-time world champion. I am the longest reigning AEW Women’s World Champion. And I am officially entering the Owen Hart Foundation Tournament. That tournament needs me. And Wembley Stadium needs me! And the Shining Samurai will go to Wembley Stadium to once again become Women’s Champion.” Will Shida shine all the way through the Summer to then go All In on an incredible fourth Women’s World Championship reign?

 

Kyle O’Reilly VS Anthony Henry!

The Violent Artist has been trying to do things on his own, but even now, Roderick Strong & The Kingdom tag along. They’re on commentary for this match, and BREAKING NEWS for Dynamite! It will be an “All-Star 8 Man” as Roderick Strong joins forces with Kyle Fletcher, Konosuke Takeshita and Zack Sabre Jr. VS Kyle O’Reilly, Orange Cassidy, Dante Martin & Mark Briscoe. Will the Savior of the Backbreaker still be able to support his “friend” here tonight knowing that now? Or will Roddy find himself rooting for the other guy?

The bell rings and the two circle. They feel things out, and tie up. Henry powers Kyle back but Kyle turns that around. They go around and around, Kyle waistlocks but Henry switches. Kyle switches and drags Henry down Henry blocks one kick but has to duck the other! The fans cheer as Henry backs off, and the two reset. Kyle and Henry feel things out, knuckle lock, and go shoulder to shoulder. They go around, Henry throws Kyle down but Kyle has the leg guard up. Kyle kicks one knuckle lock apart to trip Henry up. Henry uses a leg guard now, but Kyle stands. Henry uses body scissors to climb up and go for the arm!

Kyle moves around, back drops and ARMBAR! Henry scrambles to the ROPEBREAK! Kyle lets go, KICKS at Henry, then wrenches to an ELBOW BREAKER! This relentless Kyle is the kind Roddy likes. Kyle wrenches, whips, but Henry holds ropes! Kyle KICKS the leg, then hooks it. Henry turns that around to RUSSIAN LEG SWEEP! Henry traps Kyle’s head to NECK TWIST! Henry holds on, grabs an arm, then gives some kicks. Kyle just gets mad! The fans rally for Kyle and Roddy also coaches Kyle. Kyle stands, Henry KICKS, but Kyle ROCKS Henry. They fire off forearms, henry fires a strike fest!

Kyle blocks a kick, gives a strike fest in return, then SWEEPS the legs! The fans fire up as Henry flounders to a corner. Kyle runs up to forearm SMASH! Then wrench and ELOBW BREAKER, to a KNEE, to a suplex and FALCON ARROW into the ARMBAR! Henry TAPS, Kyle wins!

Winner: Kyle O’Reilly, by submission

Roddy says that’s because of his presence! Roddy says Kyle is clearly missing something, or someone, to help him get that edge. Will Kyle show Roddy plenty of that “edge” this Wednesday?

 

Six Man Tag: The Bang Bang Gang VS The House of Black!

We heard from Rock Hard Juice Robinson, Fully Cocked Colten, and… Austin earlier tonight, but now is time to put up or shut up! Malakai, Brody & Buddy have been World Trios Champions before, but will they get one step closer to becoming Unified AEW & ROH World Trios Champions? Or will the House fold when facing the Collision Cowboys in their house?

The trios sort out, but then they all step to each other. The fans taunt the “ASS~ BOYS~!” but we get Juice and The Dark Father. Juice and Malakai circle, then tie up. Malakai headlocks, Juice powers out but Malakai runs him over! Cover, ONE and Juice arm-drags! Malakai headscissors, Juice kips free, but Malakai avoids the arm-drag to sit down. The fans fire up, so Juice lifts a leg a la dogs. Malakai stands up to KICK Juice down! Juice scrambles away, Austin tags in. Austin is all fired up, but then Brody tags in! Austin turns around and tags Colten! Colten says that’s fine, he can bark it up. Brody swings, Colten bobs ‘n’ weaves and ROCKS-

Er, well, no, Brody doesn’t seem too bothered. Brody runs Colten over, he runs Austin over, then runs them both over! The Gunns stagger up, Brody runs up to DOUBLE LRIAT them out! Juice runs in but Brody TOSSES him out onto The Gunns! The fans fire up as The House stands together, they all build speed, but the Bang Bang Gang gets in to say BANG! So the House DECKS them all! The House tosses everyone out and the brawl is on as Collision goes picture in picture!

Brody is after Juice, Malakai TOSSES Austin, and Buddy CHOPS Colten. Malakai BOOTS Austin into the crowd! Brody sits Juice in a corner to CHOP! Malakai joins in to mug Juice, and Buddy KNEES Colten. Brody brings Juice around to whip hard into railing! Austin returns but Malakai KNEES him down. Brody CLUBS Austin, the fans fire up, and Brody CHOPS Austin. Buddy brings Colten over to join in, and he UPPERCUTS Colten into a seat. Brody herds Austin and Juice that way, the Bang Bang Gang all take seats, and Malakai KICKS away on them all! The fans hoot and bark with Brody as he runs in, to TRIPLE CROSSBODY!

The fans cheer and high-five Brody as The Bang Bang Gang all slumps down. Brody drags Colten up to put him in, and then stalks Colten to his empty corner. Brody grins at Colten’s fear, and Collision goes to break.

Collision returns again and Buddy tags Malakai. They mug Colten, then Malakai wrenches to tag Buddy. Buddy climbs up to DOUBLE STOMP Colten’s arm! Buddy taunts Austin, goes back to Colten and wrenches. Tag to Malakai and he KNEES the arm! Malakai wrenches but Colten throws him down by his hair! Tag to Austin and Austin stomps away on Malakai! The ref counts, Austin lets off, but Malakai BOOTS him! Austin runs up to CLOBBER Malakai! Austin throws hands, then tags in Colten. They whip Malakai, to BODY SHOT, KNEE LIFT, and DROPKICK! Juice tags in to SENTON! Cover, TWO!

Juice stands on Malakai, the Gunns YANK Buddy & Brody down! Juice whips Malakai hard into the corner! Juice stomps away on Malakai, argues with the ref, then drags Malakai back up. Juice snap suplexes, covers, TWO! Malakai is still in this and Juice is frustrated. Juice stands Malakai up to bump him off buckles, then he tags Austin in. They mug Malakai, Austin asks “Who’s the Ass Boy now?” “YOU!!” Austin frowns, then fires hands on Malakai. Tag to Colten, he stomps away on Malakai. The ref counts, Colten ROCKS Malakai but the fans rally up. Juice tags in, he stomps at Malakai, then eggs him on.

Juice HEADBUTTS, but Malakai ROCKS Juice, DECKS the Gunns, then fires off on Juice! Juice blocks a kick, to LEG LARIAT! Cover, TWO! Malakai is still in this and Juice is upset with the ref’s count! Juice clamps onto Malakai for a chinlock but Malakai endures. Malakai fights up as the fans rally, and Malakai KICKS the bad leg! Juice THROAT CHOPS back! Malakai falls into a corner, Juice goes corner to corner, CANNONBALL only gets buckles! Malakai crawls, as does Juice, hot tag to Colten! He CLOBBERS Malakai, then whips him away. Colten runs up, but only gets buckles! Austin tags in, grabs Malakai’s foot, but Malakai BOOTS him into Colten!

Hot tag to Buddy! The fans fire up as the Aussie Juggernaut fires off strikes and a BOOT to Austin! POP-UP KNEE for Colten! Austin runs up, into a tilt-o-whirl and LAWN DART into Colten! Buddy reels Austin in for the JACKHAMMER! Cover, Juice breaks it! The fans boo but Juice hurries to BLAST Brody! Juice goes back to Buddy to whip, but Buddy lands safe on the apron! Buddy GAMANGIRIS Juice, bumps him off buckles, then BOOTS him away! Buddy goes up, Juice staggers around, into the METEORA! Cover, TWO! Buddy’s bad knee is bothering him, but he hobbles up to tag in Brody. Brody storms in and the fans fire up as we go picture in picture again.

Buddy has medics check his knee, he may have taken himself out when he hit Juice. Brody does his best to focus on the match, and he puts Austin in a corner. Buddy is in some serious pain, though. Brody runs up to CLOBBER Austin in the corner! Brody hoots and barks and gets the fans back into this. Brody roars, runs, but Colten saves his brother! The Bang Bang Gang regroups on the outside, the medics are still checking on Buddy but it isn’t looking good. This is basically 3v2 now. Juice & The Gunns strategize, knowing they have the advantage now. The ref has Bang Bang Gang settle down a minute while Buddy is helped to the back.

The fans applaud as Buddy is doing his best to walk on the good leg, and Collision returns to single picture. But the Gunns jump on Brody, they and Juice mug him, and Malakai tries to help but is sent back out! The fans chant “YOU SUCK!” but the Bang Bang Gang doesn’t care! Tag to Colten and he stomps away on Brody. The ref counts, Colten tags Austin back in, and now Austin stomps Brody. Tag to Juice, he gets some stomps in! The fans still taunt the “ASS~ BOYS~!” but Juice blows boogers onto Brody! Then Juice CANNONBALLS! Direct hit and Juice covers, TWO! Brody stays in this and the fans fire up!

Austin tags in, then he tags Colten. The Gunns get Brody up, whip him to ropes, but Brody denies the 3:10 with a LARIAT! And another LARIAT! Juice runs up, but into a BOSS MAN SLAM! Brody is down and the fans fire up! Brody crawls, the fans hoot and bark, hot tag to Malakai! Malakai breaks through Colten’s lariat to BOOT Austin! Malakai dodges Colten, DECKS Austin, then ELBOWS Colten! A strike fest and a LEG SEWEP for Austin! SLIDING KNEE! The fans fire up, but Juice takes the QUEBRADA for Colten! Malakai still ROUNDHOUSES Colten and GERMAN SUPLEXES! Bridging cover, TWO!!

Malakai snarls and the fans fire up! Colten rises, distracts the ref with talk of injury, and Juice grabs a leg! Malakai kicks Juice away, but Colten runs up, FLYING FOREARM! Cover, TWO!! Colten’s shot doesn’t finish this but he tags to Austin. The Gunns get Malakai up, double whip, 3:10- NO, Malakai BOOTS Colten, BOOTS Austin, but Juice HOTSHOTS! FAMOUSER from Austin! Cover, TWO!! Malakai survives and Austin is stunned! The Gunns reload, call their shot, and they coordinate with Juice! Juice goes up, but Brody is back! The Gunns dodge him, 3:10 TO YUMA!!! But they have to get Malakai down!

Austin turns Malakai, Juice finally aims, but PAC is here?! The Bastard spooks Juice, trips him up, then flips off Austin! Austin swings on Pac, but turns around into THE END!!! Cover, The House wins!!

Winners: The House of Black, by pinfall

The Bastard told The Bang Bang Gang that he was not going to let what they did to Death Triangle slide! The House still gets the win, even with Buddy going down with a bad knee. But then The Patriarchy has to come in via the tron to ruin all the fun. Christian Cage says congratulations to The House. Congratulations on becoming the #1 contenders to the World Trios Championships. The only problem is, they’re not a trio anymore. The Patriarchy reveals they took out Buddy!! The Patriarchy leaves Buddy down and out, right as Malakai & Brody rush to the back! Will Christian Cage stoop to new lows just so he and his “sons” can rise up the ranks?


My Thoughts:

A great Collision for the anniversary episode, and I appreciate it was more rock, less talk. The only real talky stuff was everything Christian Cage did, but even that wasn’t so bad because he didn’t take forever getting to the point. He takes credit for all the good Collision content, heavily favors Nick Wayne over Killswitchasaurus, and then tries to hide his failure at Double Or Nothing by going for the trios titles, which he can totally just use Nick and Luchasaurus to win for him when the time comes. Really good promo from Bang Bang Gang in response, and great main event between Bang Bang Gang and House of Black.

If Buddy isn’t actually hurt, he was doing amazing acting tonight. And with how Christian “attacked” Buddy, it seems the story is the same either way: The House will need a new third man to challenge Jay White & The Gunns. Pac showed up to stick it to the Bang Bang Gang, so maybe The Bastard becomes an honorary member of The House of Black just to take the titles. And honestly, what better feud than Christian “Greatest Father Ever” Cage and “The Bastard” Pac, with how “bastard” also has the old definition of “a fatherless child.” And honestly, when is Luchasaurus going to break away from Christian? Should happen during the trios title match.

Really good 8 Man Tag, but I should’ve figured BCC would win, and that Moxley would again tell Naito that he’s done after Forbidden Door. It’s the same thing he’s been saying all week since Dominion last Sunday, he’ll probably keep saying it for those who weren’t paying attention, and I am starting to think that’s just because he’s going to lose in Long Island so Naito can have finish his last run with the world title. And good integration as Lio says hey to Dante before Dante has his match with Lee. Great win for Dante, and I figured he would because you need a true high-flyer in a ladder match. Lio helping fight off Shane Taylor Promotions is also interesting, can’t wait to see which way this splits. Could someone be leaving Top Flight to join STP?

Kyle VS Henry was a strange filler-not-filler, because at least we got the news of an 8 Man Tag happening for Dynamite. It’ll be a great match, with some Forbidden Door build involved as Cassidy will be facing Zack Sabre Jr. and now we’ll be seeing Mark Briscoe, Dante Martin, and Konosuke Takeshita in the ladder match. With that, feels like one of the Kyles takes a loss. Either Roddy purposefully costs O’Reilly or accidentally costs Fletcher. I’m thinking the former so that Roddy can insist O’Reilly still needs him to be relevant. Then they can take that feud through the Summer, maybe even into the Men’s Owen Hart Cup.

Really good promo from Shida, and she’ll be a great part of the Women’s Owen Hart Cup. Probably won’t win it, though, with the potential story of Mariah May challenging Toni Storm, or with Willow looking to go back-to-back. Very good match from Hechicero VS Dalton Castle, and it was a rather clever move that The Outrunners were the pseudo-boys that failed to save Castle while Garcia & Menard succeeded. Add Angelo Parker to that and you’ve got an 8 Man Tag right there of Garcia, Menard, Parker & Castle VS Hechicero & The Cage of Agony. Very good No DQ match from Deonna VS Rosa, but as I said earlier in the week, I figured Deonna would win. She’s a Heel, the current champions are Faces, she will make a good challenger to maybe the TBS Championship for All In.

And a great promo from The Acclaimed to call out The Bucks for their continued abuses of power. Cutler being the scrub that takes beatings on behalf of The EVPs is a pretty silly recurring gag, but Daniels getting in on the fun was good stuff. The Acclaimed surely do find a way to win the Title Eliminator in order to force a title match that The Bucks probably cheat to win. This probably still leads to Acclaimed helping Swerve for Blood & Guts, as I sensed on Wednesday.

My Score: 8.8/10

Speaking of, Alex doesn’t even wait for the bell, she goes after Toni the moment she’s in a corner! The fans boo but the bell rings and the ref reprimands.

Storm breaks through Iron Will Windsor, and revels in the praise of her adoring public. She also holds Mariah close, but will she still have both once she passes through The Forbidden Door? Or will the Fighting Gravure Idol steal more than just the spotlight?

 

Backstage interview with Harley Cameron.

Arkady Aura is with The Outcasts’ crazier component, and says she’s a bit surprised to see Harley without Saraya, considering the big win last week. Yeah, yeah, who cares? Saraya is not here as a form of protest! All these women are all declaring for the Women’s Owen Hart Tournament. Oh~, declaring~! What are we? Royal subjects? Oh, a royal decree from the king! Or maybe we’re more old Southern women, “Oh, I do declare!” The only one who should be declaring anything is Saraya. Because the winner gets a world title shot at All In. And who was it that won last year at Wembley Stadium? Saraya! What a declaration!

And with that said, Saraya’s done it before, and she will do it again. And now Harley declares this interview over, goodbye. Then from Harley’s mouth to the world’s ears, will Saraya make sure she is the one crowned the 2024 Queen of Harts before crowning herself champion once again?

 

AEW hears from Thunder Rosa and Deonna Purrazzo.

La Mera Mera tells “Deonna, you might’ve been a little bit busy, but there were some flashing news. Saturday is the one-year anniversary of Collision. And as a tradition, Thunder Rosa always likes to pick a fight. And who else than you?” But The Virtuosa asks back, what does Rosa not understand here? Rosa’s selfishness has forced Deonna to embrace her own. But La Mera Mera isn’t owed anything. From where Deonna comes from, those who want respect must show respect. And those who refuse get respect beaten into them. Saturday Night Collision, Rosa VS Deonna, NO DISQUALIFICATIONS! And Deonna asks what Rosa thinks happens when her head collides with a chair.

Rosa says nothing will stop her from showing Deonna the real respect of a warrior. No disqualifications, no problems. Happy Anniversary, Collision! But who will celebrate by standing over the other’s battered body?

 

Six Man Tag: The Cage of Agony VS Solomon Tupu, Jay Marston & Kevin Gutierrez!

Brian Cage, Bishop Kaun & Toa Liona have broken away from Swerve’s House to do things their way. So far, so good, for them. But will their opponents wish it’d been another three sent into The Cage of Agony?

The trios sort out, Tupu starts against Kaun, and the two circle. Liona distracts Tupu and Kaun DROPKICKS Tupu into the corner! Kaun CHOPS, then fires off forearms!

Winners: The Cage of Agony, by pinfall

This dangerous trio is only more dangerous now that they’re the ones in charge! Will they be right on the heels of the Unified AEW & ROH World Trios Champions?

 

Rocky Romero VS Shota Umino!

It’s another Forbidden Door appetizer as Azucar “welcomes” The Roughneck back to AEW! #SHOOTER has learned a lot from Jon Moxley over the past four years, will he show all those lessons have paid off? Or will Rocky make it clear Shota’s still got a lot to learn?

The bell rings and the two shake hands to show there’s sportsmanship here. The fans cheer, the two tie up, and Shota wrenches to a wristlock. Rocky rolls, slips around, facelocks and cravats.

Shota waits on Rocky to rise up, then runs in, IGNIT- NO, Rocky makes it a backslide!

Shota rolls through the cover, blocks a kick, ducks the enzigiri, but not the REWIND HEEL! Shota staggers to a corner, Rocky runs in. Shota dodges, runs in, but Rocky UPPERCUTS!

The Roughneck does indeed prove that what he learned from his senpai, his upperclassmen, have indeed made him into a great wrestler! But will he become one of the greatest wrestlers as he continues to battle all around the world?

 

Satnam Singh w/ Sonjay Dutt & Jay Lethal VS Rosario Grillo!

The One in a Billion is a big, big man, but he still has a lot to prove if he wants to be the best of the best. Will he finally start building on a win streak? Or will Rosario overcome this mountain of a man?

The bell rings, and Satnam offers a handshake? Rosario takes it, but Satnam won’t let go! Rosario kicks and kicks and CHPOS and CHOPS, but Satnam’s grip is too strong! And speaking of, he grabs Rosario by the neck, to PO-UP BEARHUG!! Satnam ragdolls Rosario! Rosario is OUT, Satnam wins!

Winner: Satnam Singh, by pinfall

Satnam TOSSES Rosario aside, having made quick work of the mere mortal. Sonjay Dutt gets in the ring with a mic to say, “Hey hey hey hey hey! Bubba (Jay Lethal), tell ’em, what’re you gonna do?” Lethal takes the mic to say ladies and gentlemen, Satnam Singh is on a freakin’ roll! Satnam just squashed Grillo in record time, and Lethal is so impressed that not only will he beat his opponent tonight, but he and Sonjay have a little side bet that Lethal can do it even faster than what Satnam just did. Satnam chuckles and Lethal says he’s done waiting! Bring that poor shmuck out here! Did Lethal not read the match card? Lethal’s up against THE BASTARD!!

Fans fire up as Pac makes his entrance out here. Pac already said he was in a bad mood on Dynamite, and surely Lethal taking him lightly isn’t helping things. Will Pac make sure Sonjay wins that side bet with Lethal?

The bell rings, Pac dodges Lethal to flying-mare! Pac has the headlock, Lethal puts him in a corner, and the ref counts. Pac lets go but Lethal stomps a mudhole!

Lethal stomps away on Pac’s leg, and Rampage returns to single picture as Lethal steps through. Pac kicks but Lethal blocks that, and now Lethal steps through on that leg. Pac kicks again, Lethal blocks again, but then Pac kicks Lethal away! Lethal comes back, trips Pac, and steps through, but into a cradle counter! TWO!! Lethal escapes, gets around, back suplex! Pac lands out, so Lethal handsprings, but Pac SHOTGUNS Lethal while he’s upside-down! The fans fire up while both men are down! Sonjay coaches Lethal but the fans rally for Pac.

But Lethal still hits a CUTTER! But that wasn’t lethal enough, so Lethal handsprings again! LETHAL- NO, Pac dodges to LARIAT!! And then, BRUTALIZER!! Lethal is caught, he QUITS, Pac wins!!

Winner: Pac, by submission

Pac makes Lethal suffer a few seconds longer before letting go. That’s what Lethal gets for calling The Bastard a shmuck! Pac is going to be in the Men’s Owen Hart Tournament, will he win it all to go All In for the AEW World Championship?


My Thoughts:

A great Rampage here, even with an extra squash match for the fun of it. Cage of Agony are definitely rolling, not sure they’ll be going for the trios titles while a Heel faction like Bang Bang Gang has them, but Cage, Kaun & Liona would definitely be a tough challenge for them. And I really liked that they segued from Satnam’s squash win to Lethal’s great main event with Pac. Great win for Pac to build momentum towards the Owen Hart Cup, I do like the possibility of Pac being in the main event of All In. Whether Pac is facing Ospreay or Swerve for the world title, he’ll give us great promos in the build and an awesome match in Wembley.

Great match from Rocky and Shota, and a great win for Shota. There might be something in the works for Forbidden Door, but I don’t see Shota getting in on title stories in AEW. Really good promo from Deonna and Rosa, and their No DQ match is going to be awesome stuff. That match can really go either way, but something tells me that Deonna wins. As it stands, we’ve got two Face champions in the Women’s Division, and that won’t change after Forbidden Door, so Deonna is a very strong Heel to go after Storm or Mone. And speaking of, great opener out of Storm VS Windsor, which I clearly thought was gonna be the main event but oh well. Still a good showing for Windsor and a good win for Storm, and Storm has momentum going to Forbidden Door, though she surely isn’t losing.

My Score: 8.7/10
