MJF is here!

Loveland, Colorado is all fired up for The People’s Scumbag as he finally returns to Dynamite! MJF has them cut his music, and the fans chant, “He’s Our Scumbag!” MJF says for the folks watching at home wondering why his eyes are bloodshot and squinty, they’re in Colorado, baby! The fans cheer that, and MJF says he’s back! MJF is rocking the brand new merch, available at Shop AEW now, get yours today. Okay, he’s done shilling! He’s done. But folks, he’s here to put everyone on notice.

While he was out, nursing his wounds on his beautiful couch in his palatial estate in Long Island, New York–PS Forbidden Door is gonna be in Long Island and you can bet Daddy Max will be there, probably wrestling some rando from Mexico or Japan, doesn’t matter, get your tickets today, now done shilling… MJF was watching the show, seeing a bunch of children making bold claims on his show. One guy is saying he’s The Rainmaker. Making money, huh? Well, every time MJF sees that physique, it seems the guy can’t afford a gym membership. But then there’s another bold claimer swerving around, claiming he was the leader of the Mogul Embassy.

Hell of a leader there, getting his entire crew to turn on him. But that’s not the part that offended MJF. The part that did was Swerve referring to himself as a business mogul. Interesting. Swerverino Shane, bud, last time MJF checked, business moguls tend to go to business school. And if Swerve did, then he must’ve skipped the public speaking course. But that wasn’t even the most egregious claim! The most was from some “Cockney c*ck head, walking around saying ‘Oi! I’m the besht in the world, bruv!'” Fans do chant “BRUV! BRUV! BRUV!” and MJF says yeah, good stuff.

But really interesting, Willy, cuz last time MJF checked, Ospreay ain’t Chris Jericho, Jon Moxley, Cody Rhodes, Samoa Joe, Bryan Danielson, Kenny Omega, Adam Cole, or Hiroshi Tanahashi. But y’know who managed to beat every single man on that list? The fans already know! It’s on the tip of MJF’s tongue. Oh right, Maxwell Jacob Friedman! So the next time Ospreay wants to be on MJF’s show and lie through those “disgusting, British, crooked, yellow stained teeth,” Ospreay should watch his tone and check his mouth. Silly Billy ain’t the best in the world, bruv. MJF IS! MJF is the guy who did the impossible!

In just five short years of national television exposure, he became THE man and THE face of AEW! The fans cheer that! MJF created some of the greatest matches, moments, memories and interviews in the industry today. MJF became the most hated man walking this planet, only to become the most beloved. And that doesn’t happen by accident. So imagine how MJF felt when he went home to rest up from carrying this place, only to see people had the audacity to try and smear his name. The fans boo that, but MJF says that’s revisionists trying to revise his history, his legacy, and his- Wait! Here comes Rush!

El Toro Blanco did call MJF out last week, so here he is to see the Wolf of Wrestling in person. Rush has them cut his music, and he tells MJF, “Much like all these stupid, filthy, ugly Americans, you never, ever shut up!” The fans boo but Rush says to listen and listen well, perro! When MJF was gone, Rush was here working hard, wrestling, winning, and dominating, cabron! So now MJF comes back, gets a big celebration. Where was Rush’s celebration? Where was Rush’s big moment?! Rush deserves MJF’s spot, so now he’s gonna take it! Because when you mess with The Bull, you get the horns!

MJF says okay, okay, Rush, hold on. MJF didn’t get any of that, okay? But that’s not Rush’s fault. When Tony Khan, that mark, was running things, it was rough. But now that The Elite have taken over, it’s only gotten worse. MJF is pretty sure Brandon Cutler is in the production truck, MJF doesn’t know what’s going on anymore. MJF couldn’t hear Rush. Could the fans hear Rush? “NO!” Rush, run that by them again. OH WAIT, they don’t give a s*it!! The fans fire up and Rush seethes. MJF says Rush comes out here in his dime store suit, making his bank account look real dry. Y’know, like every woman he’s ever been with.

Oh, hold on! That was going too far. Hear MJF out, okay? MJF won’t stand here and pretend he doesn’t know Rush. At one point in time, MJF paid Rush handsomely to take out Bryan Danielson. MJF knows how talented Rush is, he is wrestling royalty. His father is also a lucha libre legend. Now granted, some might call Rush a “nepotism baby” because of that. Not MJF, though! Not him! And don’t chant it, fans. They still do. But MJF says Rush proved that wasn’t the case when he sold out arena after arena in Mexico. Rush proved he is an international star. He came to the US, and in record time, he became ROH World Champion.

Rush stepped into AEW, and he managed to beat some of the best. But the problem is this, Rush. MJF isn’t one of the best. MJF is THE best! And out of respect, love and admiration, MJF wants to tell Rush how interrupting him made him feel, but he doesn’t want there to be any miscommunication, so here goes. EY, CABRON! F U!! Me llamo Maxwell Jacob Friedman, y soy- uh oh! Here comes Rush! MJF is ready and they fire off hands! The fans fire up as they go back and forth! Security and Christopher Daniels rush out here! The two men are separated, but the fans want to “LET THEM FIGHT!” Rush gets loose to CLOBBER MJF!

MJF fights back, refs rush out here and the two men are separated, only for MJF to CLOBBER Rush! They fall over as they brawl, security hurries to pull them apart! The fans fire up for MJF as he tells Rush that if he wants it, he’ll get it! Interim EVP Daniels says it isn’t happening tonight, everyone needs to calm down. Then when and where will the Wolf of Wrestling and El Toro Blanco get to tear into each other?


Roderick Strong speaks.

“With every mountain I’ve climbed, there have been setbacks, stumbles and slip-ups. Every time I approach a new obstacle, I plan, I plot, but unfortunately I’ve been shown that even the best laid plans can go awry. I had to push myself to outrun the thoughts of doubt. It was something I had to learn to do all by myself. But if there’s one thing I can always say with pride is that nothing has ever knocked me back to the bottom of the mountain. As I stand just shy of the summit of the tallest mountain I’ve ever set my sights on, I can see the sun start to set. But the sun isn’t setting on me. The sun is setting on the AEW title reign of Swerve Strickland.

“And it’s coming to the end at the hands of a wrestling legend.” Roddy then shouts “SWEEERVE!” And as he takes off his glasses, he tells The Undisputed Kingdom, “Fellas… It’s showtime.” Taven cleans the glasses and Bennett nods, but will the Savior of the Backbreaker be the destroyer of Swerve’s House?


AEW International Championship #1 Contender’s Fatal 4 Way: Orange Cassidy VS Kyle O’Reilly VS Jay Lethal VS Rey Fenix!

Will Ospreay may be going after the AEW World Champion, regardless of whose house it resides in, but he’ll still have to defend his International title next week on Dynamite! As such, the Freshly Squeezed former champion, the Violent Artist who almost had Ospreay last Saturday, the former two-time ROH World Champion and The Immortal Firebird are all fighting for that opportunity! Who gets a shot at the #BillyGoat’s gold?

The bell rings and Sonjay Dutt already has to distract Cassidy! Cassidy takes a swipe, Sonjay gets away, and Lethal TOSSES Cassidy right out! Lethal then rushes Fenix and Kyle but they dodge to fire off COHSP and forearm sand KICKS! Fenix runs but Lethal TOSSES him out! Kyle KICKS, whips, but Lethal reverses to ENZIGIRI! Kyle bails out, Lethal builds speed and the fans rally up, but then Lethal stops so he can Fargo Strut. The fans “WOO~!” with Lethal, but Cassidy is up top! FLYING LARIAT! Then Cassidy DIVES to take out Fenix! Cassidy returns to the ring, dumps Lethal out, but Lethal lands on the apron!

Lethal ROCKS Cassidy, but Kyle sweeps the legs! Kyle slides in after Cassidy and goes for the arm! Cassidy fights the double wristlock, so Kyle shifts arms! Cassidy fights that, and he has his hands in his pockets! The fans fire up while Kyle is annoyed. Kyle KICKS Cassidy down! Cassidy kips right up! Cassidy then dodges Kyle to SHOTGUN him down! Fenix returns, shoves Cassidy to a corner, but Cassidy puts him on the apron. Fenix fires off forearms, then goes up and up FLYING ARM-DRAGS! The fans fire up as Cassidy stagger sup, into a SOBAT!

Fenix aims but Lethal ducks, the SUPERKICK hits Kyle! Lethal waistlocks Kyle, Cassidy slides in and waistlocks Fenix, but then Cassidy and Lethal end up back to back. Cassidy shoves Fenix away, Lethal spins Kyle around to ROCK him! Fenix tiger feint rewinds, but Cassidy ducks and the HEEL KICK hits Lethal! Kyle yoyos in the ropes but Fenix ducks, the LARIAT hits Cassidy! Fenix and Kyle ROCK each other, then DOUBLE ROUNDHOUSE!

All four men are down and the fans are thunderous! Loveland cheers for “A E DUB! A E DUB!” as Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Fenix goes to a corner, Kyle flops out of the ring. Lethal and Cassidy stand, Lethal runs up, but into a BOOT! Cassidy goes up, but Lethal ROCKS him! Lethal fires hands on Cassidy, climbs up after him, but Cassidy resists the lift. Kyle gets in to drag Lethal down and DECK him! Kyle goes up after Cassidy, but then Fenix somersaults and CLUBS Kyle on the back! Kyle drops down, Fenix ROCKS Cassidy. Fenix gets Kyle up but Kyle fires a haymaker! Fenix SOBATS and TOSSES Kyle out! Fenix then somersaults to SHORYUKEN Cassidy! Fenix climbs up after Cassidy, CHPOS him, but Lethal CLUBS Fenix!

Lethal drags Fenix down for a BACKBREAKER! Lethal goes back to Cassidy, climbs up after him, and calls his shot. But Cassidy fires body shots! Cassidy fires haymakers now, and Lethal falls! But Sonjay trips Cassidy up! The fans protest but Sonjay gets away with that. Lethal gets Cassidy up to SUPERPLEX! Both men writhe but Lethal crawls to the cover, TWO! Lethal drags Cassidy around to drop an elbow! Cover, TWO! Kyle kicks Lethal, throws knees, but Lethal knees back. lethal TOSSES Kyle out, stalks Cassidy, and brings Cassidy up. Lethal wrenches to kick low. Lethal then reels Cassidy in to suplex, but Cassidy fights it!

Lethal still tries to suplex, fires more body shots, and he lifts Cassidy up, only for Cassidy to still fight it off! Dynamite returns to single picture and Lethal lifts one more time, only for Cassidy to fight the suplex and wrench free. But then Lethal reels him right back in! Cassidy wrenches free again, slips around, but Lethal still reels him in! Lethal suplexes, into STUN DOG MILLIONAIRE! Kyle returns to suplex, but he gets STUN DOG- NO, Kyle turns that into an ARMBAR!! Fenix FROG SPLASHES! Cover, MACHO ELBOW from Lethal!! All four men are down again and the fans are thunderous!

“This is Awesome!” as the four men stir. Lethal shakes out his arm as he sits up, and Cassidy crawls back in. Cassidy gets up, ducks ‘n’ dodges, tilt-o-whirls, but Lethal drops him down! FIGURE FOUR! Cassidy endures, keeps his shoulder sup, but Lethal pulls on the legs! The fans rally, Fenix springboards in! Lethal narrowly avoids the double stomps, and Kyle catches Fenix into a GUILLTOINE FACELOCK! Fenix flails, Lethal thrashes, Kyle shifts to a SLEEPER! Lethal lets Cassidy go so he can CLUB Kyle, and CHOP BLOCK Fenix! Kyle kciks but Lethal blocks! DRAGON- ARMBAR!! Cassidy hobbles back over, and he “kicks” away on Kyle!

Cassidy “devastates” with those kicks, then he stomps, and stomps, and stomps and stomps and stomps! Fenix DOUBLE STOMPS! Fenix gives Cassidy those toying kicks before scraping Cassidy out. The fans fire up as Fenix brings Lethal around. But Lethal trips Fenix! Fenix kicks Lethal out of the ring! Sonjay panics, Cassidy runs, ducks ‘n’ dodges to tilt-o-whirl and whirl and whirl and DDT!! Cassidy kips up, but Kyle knees low! AX AND- NO, Cassidy avoids the smash to ORANGE PUNCH!! But Lethal TOSSES Cassidy! Fenix somersaults over, but Lethal mule kicks a leg! Then he DRAGON SCREWS it!

Cassidy returns but Lethal dodges the Orange Punch to hit a LETHAL COMBINATION! The fans boo but Lethal handsprings, LETHAL INJECTION on Kyle!! But Fenix hobbles up, so Lethal gets his leg! Step through and- CRADLE COUNTER! FENIX WINS!!

Winner: Rey Fenix, by pinfall (NEW #1 Contender to the AEW International Championship)

Lethal gets caught taking it too easy, and now Fenix has a shot at the gold! Will the Firebird be ready for the Aerial Assassin? Wait, Don Callis & Trent Beretta storm out here? Oh well of course, they want after Cassidy! Cassidy stands and sees Trent in the ring. But Callis brings a chair! Cassidy says fine, he’s got a CHAIN! The fans fire up as Cassidy wraps that on his hand! Callis says time to reconsider, but then Kris Statlander runs in? The fans boo, she can’t be trusted either! Stokely Hathaway comes out here and tells Cassidy that Kris is about to put her foot so far up his ass, Cassidy will be coughing up shoe leather.

Cassidy puts the chain down, not sure what to make of this. And then Kris SUCKER PUNCHES him!! The fans boo but Cassidy stands back up. AND HERE COMES WILLOW! The fans fire up as the Babe with the Power runs out here, and that sends Kris & Stokely running! Stokely piggybacks outta here, but will Willow & Cassidy both settle scores with their former friends soon enough?


Someone arrives backstage.

The SUV parks, and out walks The Learning Tree, Chris Jericho! He already waves hi to everyone, and thanks his driver. However, as the owner of a valid driver’s license for over 35 years, Jericho wants you to remember to come to a full and complete stop at every stop sign. Don’t ever forget that. Thanks! Jericho waves hi again as he regroups with Big Bill and Bryan Keith. What’s the cameraman’s name again? Larry? Lonny? Well, either way, Jericho’s been meaning to talk with him. As a veteran of being in front of the camera for over three decades, Jericho also knows what it’s like to be behind the camera, too. Larry’s camera work is a bit shaky.

Jericho takes the camera, and shows him how it’s done. Keep it level so The Redwood and The Bad Apple are perfectly centered in frame. Bill says the sun is shining. He loves the little things in life. Keith says this is disrespect! If Larry respected Jericho, he wouldn’t have a shaky camera! Jericho says that’s a good point. But y’know what? Jericho is sure he can use some practice. Follow them inside! Jericho waves and says hi to staff and wrestlers as he enters the building, will Loveland be ready for some TV Time with Chris Jericho?


Backstage interview with Willow Nightingale.

Renee Paquette says we haven’t seen her since Double Or Nothing, the night she lost the TBS Championship, but was also viciously attacked by former best friend, Kris Statlander. Where is her head at? Willow says she’ll be the first to face facts. Willow lost. Mercedes Mone is now TBS Champion, so congrats are in order. But one day, there is a score to settle. Because Willow knows and Mone knows that Willow had Mone pinned for like, an eight count, if not for her… “friends.” Stokely, well, she wouldn’t trust him as far as she can throw him and ironically, that is a lot farther than you’d think.

But Kris? Stat was her girl! Willow would’ve trusted Kris with her life! And Kris betrayed that trust. Kris betrayed Willow when she was at her lowest. And Willow always talks about her smile, how it drives her, how it is her strength. But after being stabbed in the back, you don’t know how dangerous Willow can be. Cassidy then walks in and says hey. They fist bump, and clearly these two have something in common. When and where will Kris and Trent pay for their treachery?


Christopher Daniels speaks.

The Fallen Angel steps out on stage with a mic, and the fans cheer. “On June 30th, at Forbidden Door, we will crown a new TNT Champion in a Ladder Match!” Last week, the qualifying matches began, and we’re gonna have some more right here, right now, in Loveland, Colorado! And with that, here comes Mark Briscoe! The ROH World Champion is ready to add to the collection, will the Sussex County Chicken be flying high towards Long Island?

AEW TNT Championship Ladder Match Qualifier: Mark Briscoe VS Brian Cage!

The bell rings and the two run in! Cage runs Mark over, gets him up and bumps him off buckles. Cage fires point-blank clotheslines again and again, then lets off to ask, “Who Betta Than Cage!?” The fans boo but Cage drags Mark up to SLAP him down! Cage whips corner to corner, but Mark goes up and out! Mark then SWATS Cage’s lariat, to REDNECK KUNG-FU UPPERCUT! Mark then RAMS into Cage, BOOTS him, then gets moving to BOOT Cage outta the ring! The fans fire up and Mark builds speed, to WRECK Cage with a dropkick! The fans fire up and high-five Mark in the front row. Mark hurries to get a chair, and he tosses it in the ring!

The ref catches that chair, tells Mark no, and slides it back out. The fans boo the ref but Mark goes back out. But then Cage CLOBBERS Mark! Cage snarls, stomps Mark against the steel steps, but then slides in to refresh the count. Cage whips Mark hard into railing! Mark writhes, Cage soaks up the heat, and then Cage RAMS Mark into the barriers. Cage brings Mark bring around, SMACKS him off the apron, then slides inside. Cage goes up the corner, brings Mark up, and fans boo as Cage deadlift SUPERPLEXES! Cage flexes while fans boo, and Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Cage stalks Mark to a corner, stomps him down, and digs his boot in. The ref counts, Cage lets off, fires forearms on Cage, but Mark hits back! They go back and forth, forearm for forearm, but Mark gets the edge! Mark runs but Cage CLOBBERS him! Cage soaks up more heat, flexes again, then stalks Mark to ropes. Cage scoops M ark to SLAM, then he runs to drop a leg, brother! Cover, TWO! Mark goes to a corner but Cage digs his knee in! The ref counts, Cage lets off, and he drags Mark up. Cage RAMS into Mark, CHOPS him, then CHOPS him again! Cage whips Mark corner to corner, runs up, but into an ELBOW!

Mark runs, ducks ‘n’ dodges, but Cage LARIATS him on the return! Mark flounders to ropes, Cage flexes more and soaks up more heat. Cage storms over to Mark, drags him up, and brings him around for a BACKBREAKER! Cover, TWO! Mark toughs it out but Cage keeps him down with a chinlock. Mark endures, fights up, and fires body shots! Mark fires more and more and more shots, but Cage wrangles Mark right down with a headlock! Cage grinds Mark down, but Mark endures and fans rally up. Mark rises again, Dynamite returns to single picture, but Cage knees low! Cage reels Mark in, puts one out, but Mark slips outta the bomb!

Mark fires off forearms again and again, runs, ducks ‘n’ dodges, then ROCKS Cage! Cage staggers around, Mark CHOPS! And ROCKS! And CHOPS! Mark fire sup to REDNECK KUNG-FU UPPERCUT! Mark whips, Cage reverses but Mark CLOBBERS him! The fans fire up with Mark, but we see Don Callis and Konosuke Takeshita watching from the upper deck. Mark runs to BOOT Cage in a corner! Mark reels Cage in, but Cage wrenches out to swing, into the EXPLODER! The fans rally, Mark covers, TWO! Cage survives but the fans fire up with Mark. Cage slowly rises, staggers to a corner, and Mark runs up again, but into an ELBOW!

Cage goes up, but Mark UPPERCUTS! Cage flops to the apron then the floor, and the fans fire up again! Mark goes out and he goes looking under the ring! Mark finds himself a chair, slides that in, but the ref fetches it. Mark has a second chair! The Chicken is sneaky and he uses the chair to FLY! Direct hit on Cage, and Mark almost hits the desk! He does play with one of the AEW action figures for a second, though. Mark then storms up on Cage, drags him up and puts him in. Mark climbs, Cage stands, Mark MISSILE DROPKICKS! Cover, TWO! Cage is still in this and we see Jack Perry watching.

The fans fire up with Mark, he drags Cage up and reels him in to underhook. Cage fights, wrenches out, and RAMS into Mark! Then ripcord and ELBOW! Pump handle, for the PUMP HANDLE SLAM! Cover, TWO! Cage drags Mark back up, spin and POWERBOMB! Cover, TWO!! Mark survives and the fans are thunderous! Cage slashes his throat, vowing to end this! Cage suplexes Mark, but Mark slips free! UPPERCUT! Cage roars, so Mark ROLLING ELBOWS! Mark runs, but into a SUPERKICK! Cage runs and ROLLING- NO, Mark ducks to SHOTGUN BOOT! And then a fireman’s carry, for the ROLLING DEATH VALLEY!

Mark goes up a corner and the fans fire up again! Mark aims, for the FROGGY-BOW!! Cover, Mark wins!

Winner: Mark Briscoe, by pinfall (advances to Forbidden Door)

The Chicken indeed does fly, and he gets himself that golden ticket to Long Island! The Alpha is ready, the Scapegoat is scheming, what happens when these stars fight to be the Face of TNT?

Speaking of Jack, he “congratulates” Mark. Mark’s officially qualified for the ladder match. But in the end, what’ll it matter? Jack’s already proven no one is willing to sacrifice more than him. Tony Khan can screw Jack over as many times as he wants, but Jack’s already proven that he can’t be stopped! The universe has already chosen Jack Perry, and one way or another he is the next TNT Champion. Mark and the fans heard that, and they all disagree. Will the ROH World Champion become Mr. Two Belt Briscoe?


Backstage interview with Samoa Joe & Hook.

Renee is now with the Samoan Submission Specialist and the Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil. She says a lot of people have seen something special in Hook and it seems many want to take him under their wing. Is it safe to say Joe is the new mentor? Joe says he wouldn’t call this a mentorship, but- Joe gets interrupted by The Premier Athletes. Tony Nese cannot believe this. After all these years, you think Hook would stop eating junk food and take things more seriously. Hook counters by asking, after all these years, is Nese still losing matches? Nese SLAPS the Funyuns outta Hook’s hands, and Joe has to keep Hook from getting his hands on Nese!

Daivari talks trash now, saying Hook doesn’t have his daddy here to protect him, so he has to get a former champion. Joe again keeps Hook from tearing into people, and The Premier Athletes leave, saying “That’s what I thought! Punk!” Joe calms Hook down and says cowards like that don’t talk to killers like them unless they think they can get away with it. And it seems that with all this extra security around here, those guys knew what they were doing. But like Joe said, they will handle that, on their own time. Hook nods and fist bumps. When and where will Nese & Daivari learn not to mess with dangerous men?


Chris Jericho and crew continue on backstage.

The Learning Tree says look at here! Two of his favorite “branches,” Matthew Menard & Angelo Parker! Congratulations! After so much time with Jericho, both their careers and personal lives are better than ever. Daddy Magic’s taking over for Jericho as lead commentator on Rampage! Great job, but remember: face up and annunciate. Ann’nciate? Yesh, a-nun-see-ate. Then shove it up yer ass! Good one, Menard. And Cool Hand Ange! Beautiful new bride with a baby on the way! Jericho is an eight-time champ and a three-time dad, so he has some advice: When the baby gets fussy, just remember EASY.

That’s something to eat, an activity to do, then some sleep, and most importantly, you! It’s EASY! And when you do that, the baby will always be happy. Thanks, guys! See you later! Jericho leads the way, and Keith tells Parker to make sure the baby respects Chris Jericho. Sure… But will Menard & Parker prove they’re just fine doing things their way, not The Learning Tree’s way?


The Acclaimed & Billy Gunn are here!

Loveland fires up already, and Platinum Max Caster dedicates this one to The Young Bucks! “Acclaimed on the mic and I’m here to make the words hurt. The EVPs: The Extremely Vain Perverts! Extraordinarily Vapid P*nises! Far from the geniuses, wack with the leadership!” But wait, The Bucks interrupt via the tron! Matthew & Nicholas say sorry not sorry but they gotta cut this. The Acclaimed should know better. Did they not read their AEW Employee Handbooks? It clearly says do NOT disparage Your EVPs. So unfortunately, we won’t be hearing from The Acclaimed, nor will we be seeing The Acclaimed, either. This segment is cut!

Not clear the ring area! GET OUT! But hey, let’s have a great show. The fans boo and Bowens is beside himself! Caster tries to talk but the mic isn’t working anymore. The fans call BS, and Bowens makes sure the Bucks hear it. Caster says screw it, and the trio heads backstage. Will they have a way to get even with the egotistical EVPs?


Backstage interview with Swerve Strickland.

Renee is with The Realest, and Prince Nana, and notes that Swerve has had a lot going on as of late. Tonight, in the main event, the world title will be on the line against Roderick Strong, how is he feeling going into this match? Swerve wants to first say, welcome back to MJF! That little b*tch! Finally, he shows up to work, and he mentions Swerve. Swerve will deal with MJF in a way he won’t like. But second of all, he has in this folder the contract for The Forbidden Door main event, signed, sealed and delivered by yours truly. Nana, send that to Mr. Ospreay in the UK, right on his front door step. No worries, shipping is on Swerve.

But tonight, Swerve says he has his world heavyweight championship match with Roderick Strong. Roddy talks about climbing mountains and being knocked down over and over again. Understand you are dealing with THE mountain of pro-wrestling! And he won’t just knock Roddy off the mountain, he’ll bury Roddy under it! Since Roddy wants to make demands and all. But what’s been on Swerve’s mind is the EVPs, and their winning Anarchy in the Arena at Double Or Nothing. That’s a damn shame. Swerve witnesses Team AEW losing, he was rooting for them. They’d assembled a great group of talent.

But next time, make sure that when you assemble Team AEW, it better represent AEW with the AEW World Champion. Whose House? “SWERVE’S HOUSE!” The champ heads out, will he show Roddy who’s truly strong?


BREAKING NEWS for Forbidden Door!

While La Primera, Stephanie Vaquer, is coming for the AEW TBS Championship, Mercedes Mone raises the stakes! Mone wants that NJPW Strong Women’s Championship, the belt she would’ve won if not for Willow Nightingale. Who will walk out of Long Island a Double Champion?

Mercedes Mone speaks.

“Growing up watching wrestling as a kid was an escape for me to a whole new world. But watching Japanese wrestling, it was so captivating. The honor, the respect, the violence, it was beautiful and dangerous all at the same time. But watching the women, they were my superheroes. When I saw them, I knew exactly what I could be. So competing in NJPW, I knew that this was going to be an important part of my journey. So since money changes everything, they had to create a whole new title. And that clearly had my name written all over it.”

Rocky Romero adds that after Mone won the IWGP Women’s Championship, it was only natural to create the NJPW Strong Women’s Championship. NJPW Resurgence, May 21, 2023. Mone says wrestling Vaquer then was an honor, and Vaquer didn’t even know how good she was until facing Mone. Fast, fierce, violent, but Mone loved it. And we all know how the finals went. But Mone righted her wrongs and captured a title. Vaquer became NJPW Strong Women’s Champion along the way, and now, the title that was meant for Mone is on the line. When they step into the ring again, the world will see that Mone Changes Everything.


8 Man Tag: Blackpool Combat Club VS Magnus, Volador Jr, Rugido & Esfinge!

The BCC is finally back at 100% as Wheeler Yuta returns from injury! Will the Decoder, Maniac Moxley, Swiss Superman and American Dragon finally and truly settle things with CMLL?

The teams sort out and the fans duel between “LUCHA! LUCHA!” and “B C C! B C C!” The teams stare down, and it’s Yuta who fires the first shot! The brawl is on, the bell rings, and the fans fire up!

The fans cheer as Bryan sends his shirt to the crowd. Rugido eggs Bryan on, so Bryan CHOPS! Rugido CHOPS! Bryan CHOPS again so Rugido CHOPS again! They CHOP again and again, Bryan waistlocks but Rugido switches. They switch again and again, then Bryan throws elbows. Bryan whips Rugido, Rugido ducks ‘n ‘dodges then RANAS! The fans fire up as Bryan bails out but Yuta gets in to BOOT!

Rugido tumbles out but Magnus CLOBBERS Yuta! Claudio runs in to LARIAT Magnus, but Volador CROSSBODIES! Claudio catches Volador with that super strength! Moxley runs up but Volador slips away! Moxley keeps from hitting Claudio, Volador runs to handspring and DOUBLE BACK- NO, Moxley & Claudio catch him first! But then Esfinge springboards in to DOUBLE MISSILE DROPKICK! The fans fire up and Esfinge builds speed. Volador coordinates with him, Esfinge DIVES onto Moxley, then Volador slingshots to FLYING RANA Claudio! The fans fire up as Bryan and Rugido return. Rugido whips Bryan into the ropes!

Magnus runs up to 619! Rugido covers, TWO! The fans rally and Rugido gets Bryan up. Rugido whips Bryan to the corner, runs up, but into a BOOT! Rugido rolls back, dodges Bryan, and Yuta tags in!

Winners: The Blackpool Combat Club, by pinfall

The ROH Pure Champion pulls out the win using a technical hold! Will this return mean even bigger and better things for all of the BCC?


Chris Jericho and crew continue to catering.

He says hi to the branches, and as a guy who’s been enjoying chicken ‘n’ dumplings for many years, let Jericho show you how to properly scoop. You gotta go all the way to the top, then put it in the bowl. That’s the best way to get the most for your meal. Thanks, guy! Jericho moves on, what more “advice” is he going to give to AEW as the night goes on?


Daniel Garcia speaks.

“We’re here at Grappler’s Anonymous in Buffalo, New York, the place where a 18-year-old Daniel Garcia stepped into a wrestling gym for the first time, and wanted to be a professional wrestler.” When he comes here, it reminds him of who he was and what he is, and what has changed and what also hasn’t changed. It brings him back to being a 20-year-old pro-wrestler who’s just trying to make it. He was hungry, driving 12+ hours to Maine for no money, driving 6+ hours to Montreal across the border to try and get a chance. On the way back, he gets into a car accident, nearly dies, breaks both his legs, didn’t even know if he’d be able to walk again, let alone wrestle.

But Garcia is grateful for that moment. He realized life is too short to let opportunities come and go. H e has to go out and take ’em. So without asking for permission, he’s challenged Ospreay for the International Championship, hoping to bring out that old version of himself. That 20-year-old Garcia who didn’t know if he was ever gonna be able to do anything again. Garcia needs that side of himself, because you cannot out grit him, you cannot out grind him, and you cannot out work him. Will that Daniel Garcia return to take the gold?


The Acclaimed storm up to The Bucks backstage!

Security is there to stop Caster, Bowens & Daddy Ass, but Matthew & Nicholas sarcastically say, “Great segment!” “Sorry, guys, we’re slammed, no time for anymore meetings.” Bowens says that’s fine, they’re not here to talk. They’re here to let The Bucks know that sooner or later, they’ll have to be face to face with The Acclaimed, and the Bucks won’t like it. But thanks, guys, great show! Doing a great job, the company’s awesome. Jackasses… The Acclaimed are a bit fed up with their bosses, but will they become #1 contenders to those AEW World Tag Team Championships and force the issue?


AEW returns and we hear from The Bucks.

Nicholas says this show is running smoothly, but it seems they have more business to attend to. Matthew says hi to The Patriarchy, nice to see them again. How’s it going? Christian Cage sighs, and says if there is anyone he can trust to make the right decision, it’s The EVPs. It is no secret Christian got “screwed” out of the AEW World Championship at Double Or Nothing. Christian has carried AEW on his shoulders for the past year, and The Patriarchy deserves to be at the top, with gold! Christian wants another shot. Matt says he loves Christian, Nick loves them, this is one of the best stables in the entire company!

And hey, if they had it their way, Christian, Nick Wayne, Luchasaurus, they’d all have a belt! They all deserve one! But they tried to do that for their friend, Jack Perry, and Tony Khan & Christopher Daniels had to go screw that up. But hey, these two have some pull still. They will see what they can do, and Matt promises Christian will be happy. So how about some uh, you scratch their back, they scratch yours? Christian says that is a wise decision. They shake hands on it. What’s Christian’s shoe size? 12. Okay, they’ll get him some comp’d Reeboks. On to the next segment! Can they get some water? They’re parched!


Saraya w/ Harley Cameron & Zak Knight VS Mariah May w/ Toni Storm & Luther!

The Outcasts keep calling out The Leading Lady’s protege, but the AEW Women’s World Champion promises they will regret it! And to put a little spin on her Toni Storm cosplay, Mariah is wearing the green Outcast ensemble! Will Mariah rock the Rocky Mountains? Or will it be a Good Knight for Saraya instead?

Storm is on commentary, and Excalibur brings up how she threw out the challenge to Mariah’s other mentor, Mina Shirakawa, and how it has been accepted for Forbidden Door. Storm somewhat ignores that headline, and then Saraya already goes after Mariah! Saraya pulls the green jacket off Mariah, tosses it, and the bell rings! Saraya swings around the Outcast shirt she ripped off Mariah, then runs in at the corner. Mariah goes up and over, rolls and eggs Saraya on. Saraya runs up, but Mariah ROCKS her! Mariah fireman’s carries to SAMOAN DROP! Mariah drags Saraya up, runs and SHOTGUNS her down!

The fans fire up and Mariah is fired up, too! Storm says she’s so gorgeous, isn’t she? Hard to tell if she means herself with the camera on her at the moment… But Mariah scoops Saraya for the SPINOUT SIDEWALK SLAM! The fans fire up and Mariah stalks Saraya. Saraya bails out, she’s furious, and tells Mariah to stay away. Mariah chases Saraya around the outside, in and out of the ring, and the fans boo. Saraya taunts Mariah, Mariah chases her again, but Mariah still can’t catch Saraya. Mariah still tries, but then Harley runs up! Mariah dodges Harley but Saraya BOOTS Mariah down! The fans are torn while Saraya blows kisses.

Harley & Zak talk trash and Storm only just realizes Saraya’s brother is here. Saraya drags Mariah up and THRWOS her into railing! Storm is concerned for her girl, but Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Harley helps Saraya hydrate real quick, then Saraya drags Mariah up. Saraya THROWS Mariah back into railing! Saraya refreshes the ring count, gets Mariah back up, and brings her around to taunt Storm. Saraya then THROWS Mariah into more railing! Saraya again refreshes the ring count, Storm is still concerned for Mariah, but Harley helps Saraya hydrate again. Saraya leaves Mariah behind to swagger around, then she goes to fetch Mariah. Saraya taunts Storm more, but Mariah SLAPS Saraya! Saraya CLUBS Mariah, puts her in the ring, and covers. TWO and Saraya is upset. Saraya stalks Mariah while mocking the fans.

Saraya steps out to the apron, brings Mariah into ropes, and fires off KNEE after KNEE after KNEE! The ref counts, Saraya lets off, and Maria flops back. Saraya soaks up the heat, stalks Mariah to a corner, then digs her boot in. The ref counts, Saraya lets off, and she “apologizes” before going back. Mariah fires body shots, but Saraya CLUBS her down! Saraya whips, Mariah ducks ‘n’ dodges, DOUBLE CROSSBODIES collide! The ref checks while both women are down, Storm is concerned while The Outcasts coach Saraya. Dynamite returns to single picture as Saraya crawls to Mariah. Saraya fires a forearm, but Mariah gives it back!

Saraya fires another forearm, Mariah fires back! They go shot for shot, Storm is at a loss for words she’s so angry with Saraya. Mariah gets the edge, but Saraya pulls hair! Mariah pulls hair back! The fans fire up as the two glare at each other, then swing! Mariah dodges to HEADBUTT a la Storm! Mariah and Saraya goes to corners, and Mariah runs up to UPPERCUT! Then she hoists Saraya up. Mariah puts some stank on the DOUBLE CHOPS! Mariah then goes corner to corner again, STRATUSPHERE! Saraya staggers, Mariah roars and climbs! Mariah MISSILE DROPKICKS, down goes Saraya! Cover, TWO!

Saraya stay sin this and Mariah grows frustrated. Mariah drags Saraya to a corner, storms to the other side, and the fans fire up! Mariah says kiss this, and she runs in to SWEET HIP MUSIC! Cover, TWO!! Saraya survives and Mariah is losing her cool! The fans rally, Storm encourages Mariah, and Mariah reels Saraya in. Mariah CHOPS, CHOPS and CHOPS! DOUBLE CHOP! Mariah reels Saraya in, underhooks, but Sayara wrenches out! Mariah wrenches back, but then Saraya wrenches again! KNIGHT CAP!! Cover, TWO!!! Mariah survives and shocks everyone, even Storm! The fans are thunderous and Storm says the training is working!

Saraya drags Mariah by her legs, steps through, and ties up the legs, but Mariah cradles! TWO!! Saraya and Mariah scramble up, Saraya SUPERKICKS! Saraya gets the legs, steps through again, QUEEN ANGELITO STRETCH!! Mariah endures, Storm pleads with her to hold out, but Mariah can’t! Mariah QUITS, Saraya wins!

Winner: Saraya, by submission

Storm storms up, throws off her shoes, and gets in to comfort her protege. But then The Outcasts attack Storm! The fans boo as Harley & Saraya beat them both down, Zak intimidating Luther into staying back! But wait! Here comes Mina! The Fighting Gravure Idol storms in to URAKEN Harley! And she ROLLING ELBOWS Saraya! The fans cheer as Mina goes to her Mariah and comforts her! However, Storm sees that and is jealous! Storm storms over, and it’s chins up, tits out, and a fight for supremacy! Mariah gets between her mentors, and holds them both to her bosom!

However it is official, we are getting Storm VS Shirakawa in Long Island! Only one can leave Forbidden Door as THE AEW Women’s Championship, who leaves with gold around their waist and Mariah at their side?


Chris Jericho is still walking around backstage.

The Learning Tree now says hi to Private Party. He has some advice for Isiah Kassidy & Marq Quen. “As a guy who’s been to a lot of parties, they’re always more fun when they’re not private. You should open your party up to everybody, like I’ve opened up the Jericho Vortex! Everyone’s invited! Maybe you should change their name to Public Party, guys! Hahaha!” Yeah… Thanks, but no thanks. Zay & Quen respect the OG in the game, but they don’t fit the dynamic. Respectfully. Keith says no, that’s disrespect! Nobody wants to come to their lame ass party anyway. Hey, Zay was talking to Jericho, not Keith.

Bill has the Bad Apple calm down. But remember: it’s the ones who need the advice the most that tend to not see they need it. Jericho agrees with Bill, and he is gonna help Private Party get what they desperately need, and that’s more time on Dynamite. Next week, they’re invited to TV Time with The Learning Tree! Think about it, hope to see you then. Thanks, guys! Jericho heads out, Zay mocks Jericho, but Quen says that might be kinda fun. Will they make it a party when they join Jericho for his talk show?


Bryan Danielson speaks.

“What a blessing this is, right? To see somebody like Wheeler Yuta return after being injured for four months, to go out there, fight like hell against the CMLL guys, and he comes out on top! He’s the one who gets the win! I couldn’t be prouder of Wheeler Yuta.” But as for himself, Bryan knows it was 8 months ago he said this would be his last year as a full-time wrestler. That it’d be the most epic year. But the truth is, it hasn’t been what he wanted. He fought for the TNT Championship against Christian Cage, and lost. He thought that’s fine, he’ll have other chances. Continental Classic came, he made it to the semifinals, and lost.

But then he got a match with Okada at Tokyo Dome! That was to be his vindication. But he lost. Then every big match since, he has lost and lost and lost. The straw that broke the camel’s back was losing Anarchy in the Arena. Bryan was pretty down about that. He was talking with Yuta, saw how fired up he was to come back. And so Bryan realized his last year as a full-time wrestler ain’t over yet. When TK said the winner of this year’s Owen Hart Cup gets an AEW World title shot at All In London…! Bryan got fired up one more time. This might be his last shot, but it’ll be the best shot he’s had his entire career, and he’s going out on top.

The American Dragon is ready, but will he retire with the greatest prize imaginable? Or will he go down in a blaze of glory?


BREAKING NEWS for Rampage!

Back at its regular time of 10 PM Eastern on a Friday night on TNT, we see Mina Shirakawa back in action against Serena Deeb! If Storm can beat the Professor, can the Fighting Gravure Idol do it even better? Plus,


AEW World Championship: Swerve Strickland w/ Prince Nana VS Roderick Strong w/ The Undisputed Kingdom!

Speaking of the world title, The Realest is already planning on making it him and Will Ospreay at Forbidden Door. However, Roddy felt he was robbed of his chance when Ospreay ended that Casino Gauntlet just before Roddy could enter. Will Roddy change everyone’s plans right here tonight? Or will Long Island still enter Swerve’s House?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see who stands at the summit of AEW!

The bell rings and the two circle as the fans rally. They feel things out, tie up, and go around. Swerve facelocks, Roddy waistlocks, but Swerve wrenches out to a wristlock. Roddy slips through, goes for a leg, but Swerve stays up using a clinch. They end up on ropes, the ref counts, and Swerve lets off, to then get a headlock. Roddy powers up but can’t power out as Swerve holds tight. Roddy fight sup, throws body shots, and powers out this time, only for Swerve to run him over!

Swerve fights up, powers Roddy to ropes, and the ref counts. Swerve gets that headlock back but Roddy powers up and out. Roddy hurdles but Swerve handstand walks over the drop down!

Winner: Swerve Strickland, by pinfall (still AEW World Champion)

The third time was the charm, and The Realest breaks the Savior of the Backbreaker! And now, without question, it will be Swerve VS Ospreay for this title! But will Ospreay make it to Long Island with his International Championship? Or will Fenix be the one changing things next week on Dynamite?

My Thoughts:

A great Dynamite to establish more for Forbidden Door. I really like that we got another TNT Championship match qualifier, and Mark VS Cage was a great match as it was. Great win for Mark, and I’m pretty sure with Jack’s promo that followed, he still gets his own spot in that ladder match. He might even still find a way to win if House of Torture shows up at Forbidden Door. Great 8 Man Tag and great win for the BCC to get back on track as a faction. Yuta still has his ROH Pure Championship even though normally an injury would strip someone of a title. But TK doesn’t care about ROH so whatever. Bryan’s promo was great, and him getting in on the Owen Hart Cup, maybe even winning it, is going to be awesome stuff.

Great match for Mariah and Saraya, and while Saraya won, I figured we’d get Mina showing up to make a save. Forbidden Door is definitely a fitting PPV for them to do the Mentor VS Mentor story as it’s also AEW VS Stardom. And as I’ve been saying in thinking up this angle, I would think Storm retains the title, but maybe Mina steals Mariah away. Good promo from Mercedes Mone to help announce and hype up the Title For Title match. I am fully expecting Mone to become a double champion by winning the belt she technically was meant to win last year, but I would love if she lost and Vaquer would become a QUADRUPLE champion (I think she still has both her CMLL titles), and then that defeat infuriates Mone into being a selfish Heel.

Great stuff with Acclaimed and Bucks, with The Bucks “canceling” a segment to stick it to The Acclaimed for calling them out. Acclaimed will surely keep winning tag match after tag match until they’re #1 contenders set for a match at All In London. And good promo where The Bucks are still gonna be helping The Patriarchy. Maybe they try and feed an ROH title holder to The Patriarchy as The Bucks want Jack to be TNT Champion, Okada is Continental Champion, and it’d be redundant to do another AEW World title story with them. Maybe Yuta’s first ROH Pure Championship feud can be with Nick Wayne, who could also use something to do.

Great ongoing stuff with Jericho and his faction tonight. His over the top advice giving was pretty funny, and we’ve got some tag teams that will definitely want a fight with some combination of Jericho, Bill & Keith. Very good promo from Garcia to call upon his past to motivate this next phase. We got an awesome Fatal 4 Way to open the night to give us Ospreay VS Fenix, but it definitely feels like Ospreay will have to defend the International Championship against Garcia before having to face Swerve for the world title. Also good intertwining of stories where Cassidy was out there for Trent and Kris to go after, only for Willow to show up. Pretty sure that’s a Mixed Tag right there.

And of course, great stuff for the world title tonight. Really good promo from Roddy, good response from Swerve, and an awesome main event. Of course Swerve retains, he’s locked in now, can’t wait to see Ospreay VS Swerve happen.

My Score: 8.8/10

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?

Rocky and Yuta trade forearms, the fans fire up, and then the CHOPS fly! CHOP after CHOP after CHOP and the fans fire up more! Yuta fires a flurry of forearms, then whips. Rocky slides under, kicks, Yuta ducks the enzigiri but not the HEEL KICK! Yuta rewinds to get around and GERMAN SUPLEX! Bridging cover, TWO! Yuta floats to a facelock, tags Claudio, and the fans cheer as the Swiss Superman kicks low.

Moxley makes Rocky sit on the railing, Claudio BOOTS him down! Bryan KICKS Shane again and again, “YES! YES! YES!” Bryan winds up to BUZZ_ NO, Shane ducks to shove Bryan! Mikey trips Bryan, Shane basement dropkicks!

Mikey spins Bryan around to UPPERCUT! The ref reprimands, The BCC storms up, and Collision goes picture in picture.

The ref has everyone back off, but Rocky gets cheap shots on Bryan! The ref reprimands, Rocky backs off, and Shane drags Bryan in to stomp him down. Shane drags Bryan up, cravats, then tags in Lio. They mug Bryan, and Lio fires off at the ropes! Tag to Rocky, he adds on with KICKS! Rocky stomps Bryan down, tags Mikey, and they mug Bryan some. Mikey then CHOKES Bryan on the ropes! The ref counts, Mikey lets off, and Bryan sputters as he reaches out. Mikey drags Bryan up to tag in Rocky, and the mugging continues!

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!

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!

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.

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!

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.

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?

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

Toni Storm w/ Mariah May & Luther VS Alex Windsor!

The Leading Lady knows her beloved, budding protege’s past partner is coming for her prized possession, but she is looking to send a message tonight. Will Mina Shirakawa hear that message loud and clear? Or will Titanium Alex be nobody’s tune-up?

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. Alex fires off haymakers on Storm, then bumps her off buckles. Windsor soaks up the heat, whips Storm back in, then runs up to CHOP! Windsor soaks up more heat, then runs back in, but into a THESZ PRESS! Storm rains down fast hands, then fires up! The fans are with her and Storm gives Windsor a point-blank HIP ATTACK! And then another! And then another! Storm winds up, the fans fire up, and BOOM, another hip attack! Windsor tumbles out while the fans cheer.

Storm runs side to side to HIP ATTACK Windsor off the apron! Storm calls Mariah over, nuzzles her, then goes after Windsor. Storm CLUBS Windsor, drags her up, then reels her in. Windsor fights the suplex, throws body shots, and then swings, but Storm DECKS her first! Storm goes to the ring but Windsor gets her for a wheelbarrow! Windsor SMASHES Storm off the apron! Windsor KICKS Storm, gets her back up, and hits an APRON BACK SUPLEX! Storm flounders, Mariah is concerned but Windsor gets in her way. Windsor CLUBS Storm, HAMMERS away, then soaks up the heat. Windsor slides into the ring and Mariah checks on Storm.

Windsor taunts Storm, then goes back out to fetch her. But now Luther stands in Windsor’s way to keep her from getting at Mariah. Windsor drags Storm up, whips her, and POSTS her! Storm staggers around, Windsor runs up to CLUB her again, then throws body shots! Windsor CLUBS Storm, soaks up more heat, but Storm RAMS Windsor into barriers! The fans fire up as Storm rolls into the ring. The fans rally as Windsor drags Storm to a corner, to SLAM the legs into the post! And again! And again! And again! The ref reprimands, but Windsor YANKS Storm out to CLUB her down. Windsor rolls into the ring while fans rally behind Storm.

Luther & Mariah check on Storm, but Windsor goes out again. Luther says to stay back, but Windsor SHOVES Luther into Mariah, which sends Mariah into Storm! The fans boo but Windsor stomps away on Storm, and Rampage goes picture in picture.

Windsor drags Storm up and ROCKS her with a forearm! Storm sputters and staggers around the way, but Windsor stalks after her. Windsor has Storm against barriers to CLAW the eyes! Windsor puts Storm in the ring, drags her to a cover, TWO! Storm is tougher than that, and Mariah scowls at Windsor. Windsor fires forearms on Storm, ROCKS her, then whips Storm to ropes to run her over! Cover, TWO! Windsor grows frustrated but she drags Storm up for a cravat. Storm endures the neck wrench, but Windsor throws in knee after knee!  Storm throws body shots but Windsor whips her to a corner.

Windsor runs in but Storm dodges! Rampage returns to single picture as Storm blocks boots, puts Windsor in ropes and hits a DRAPING BACKSTABBER! Windsor writhes, Storm goes to the far end, and the fans fire up for the close up! Storm runs in to SWEET HIP MUSIC! And then the fisherman SUPLEX! Bridging cover, TWO! Not quite perfect but Storm storms around. She drags Windsor up and reels her in, but Windsor wrenches out to HEADBUTT! Storm HEADBUTTS back! Storm runs, but Windsor clothesline at ropes! And again! And then a RIGHT ANGLE SLAM! Cover, TWO! Storm survives and the fans rally up!

Windsor drags Storm up but Storm drags her into a cradle! TWO, SHINING WINDSOR! Cover, TWO!! The fans rally for Storm again but Windsor snarls. Windsor storms up on Storm, drags her up, short arm- NO, Storm dodges the lariat, runs, and smothers the pop-up to STORM ZERO!! Cover, Storm wins!

Winner: Toni Storm, by pinfall

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! The ref counts, Kaun bumps Tupu off buckles to then fire off more forearms. Kaun CHOPS, the ref has him back off, and Kaun runs in. Tupu goes up and over, keeps moving, and Gutierrez tags in. Kaun CLOBBERS Tupu but Gutierrez kicks low! Gutierrez whips but Kaun reverses. Gutierrez ducks ‘n’ dodges, but Liona sneaks a tag. Gutierrez hurdles but turns around into a BOOT! Liona CLOBBERS Gutierrez! Liona looms over Gutierrez, drags him up, then BODY SHOTS!

Liona BODY SHOTS again, and again! Gutierrez falls, but Liona drags him up again, to LARIAT! The fans rally as Liona drags Gutierrez over and tags in The Machine. Gutierrez fires haymakers on Liona, but they do nothing! Liona SPINEBUSTERS Gutierrez! Cage smirks, Marston tags in, and Marston ducks ‘n’ dodges, but runs into a BIG back drop! Cage drags Marston up, reels him in, puts one out, an d gives Marston a POWERBOMB! Cage then tags to Kaun, Liona steps in with him. Tupu runs in, dodges The Gates, but Cage SUPERKICKS him! Then the Gates get Tupu up to CLOSE THE GATES!

Cage drags Marston over, and the trio TRIPLE SLAMS him! Kaun covers, The Cage of Agony wins!

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 swim moves to wrench and wrangle Rocky to the mat. Rocky stands, Shota wrenches and wristlocks, but Rocky pulls hair. The ref reprimands, but Rocky wrenches through to an IRON OCTOPUS! Shota endures, powers out and throws Rocky down. Shota has the toehold, then digs a knee into the knee. Rocky turns over, stands up, clinches, and they end up on ropes. The ref counts, Rocky slowly lets off, and then CHOPS!

Shota just stares Rocky down! The fans fire up, and Shota winds up to CHOPS! Rocky staggers and sputters, Shota fires forearms! Shota spins, Rocky ducks the elbow, but runs into a scoop and DROP! Then a basement dropkick! The fans cheer and Shota does a dance similar to Mercedes Mone’s! Shota stomps Rocky around, CLUBS him, then stalks him to ropes. Shota CLUBS Rocky again, but Rocky grits his teeth. Shota ROCKS Rocky against ropes, then has him in a corner. Shota stomps and UPPERCUTS, then he stalks Rocky. Shota stomps Rocky, UPPERCUTS again, then whips to ropes. Rocky holds ropes to BOOT back!

Shota runs up but Rocky DUMPS Shota out! Rocky builds speed and DIVES! Shota’s head hits the desk and the ref checks him out while Rampage goes picture in picture.

It seems Shota is okay so the ref goes back to the ring. Rocky stands, fires up, and gives us some Latino Heat. Rocky puts Shota in the ring, drops a knee into the back, then stomps Shota before dropping a knee on the chest! Cover, TWO! Shota toughs it out but Rocky drags him up. Rocky KICKS the bad arm, wrenches it, then hits an ELBOW BREAKER! Shota goes to ropes, Rocky puts him through ropes, to KICK again! Rocky goes up a corner, gives some more Latino Heat, then MISSILE DROPKICKS! Shota flounders, Rocky covers, TWO! Rocky argues the count but the count was fair, so Rocky clamps onto Shota with a cobra clutch!

Rocky thrashes Shota around but Shota endures. Shota fights up, throws elbows, but Rocky CLUBS him on the back. Rocky TOSSES Shota out, then aims from the apron! CROSSBODY, but Shota catches him! Shota pops Rocky up but Rocky slips free, so Shota SHOTGUNS him down! Both men are on the floor on the outside and the fans rally up. Shota rises up, fetches Rocky, and puts him in the ring. But Rocky DROPKICKS Shota back! Shota is down in the corner and Rampage goes to break.

Rampage returns and Rocky clotheslines Shota in a corner! Rocky keeps going, and clotheslines again! Then he keeps going, but Shota DROPKICKS him down! The fans fire up and Shota pounds the mat. The fans rally behind Shota and he aims at Rocky at the ropes. Slingshot, APRON DDT! The fans fire up again as Rocky flops to the floor! Shota puts Rocky in, then goes up a corner. Shota aims as Rocky flounders, MISSILE DROPKICK! Shota hurries to clinch, EXPLODER! Cover, TWO! Rocky survives but Shota stays focused. 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! Rocky goes up and up and TORNADO DDTS! Rocky pounds the mat, the fans rally behind him now, and he aims from a corner. Shota rises, Rocky runs in, SLICED BREAD!! Cover, TWO!! Shota survives and Rocky roars! The fans are torn as Rocky drags Shota up. Rocky fires forearms, but Shota just eggs him on! The fans like that, so Rocky fires more forearms! Shota roars, but Rocky UPPERCUTS! And cravat, for the SLICED- NO, Shota poops free!

Shota POP-KNEES, then IGNITION!! Cover, TWO!! Rocky survives but Shota takes aim from the corner now! A shoutout to Ospreay here with his BLAZE BLADE!! And then PARADIGM SHIFT!! Cover, Shota wins!

Winner: Shota Umino, by pinfall

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?

PAC VS Jay Lethal w/ Sonjay Dutt & Satnam Singh!

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! The ref counts, Lethal stops and walks it off. Sonjay knows he’s already won the side bet but he still wants Lethal to win the match. Lethal tosses Pac out, but Pac lands on the apron. Pac RAMS into Lethal, slingshots up and over, then comes back, only for Lethal to hip toss! Lethal cartwheels but Pac kips up! Pac SUPERKICKS Lethal, Lethal bails out, so Pac runs to FLY! Direct hit and Pac stares through the camera into the souls of the AEW roster!

Pac drags Lethal up, but he’s wary of Satnam. Pac puts Lethal in, goes up, and fans chant “HE’S OUR BASTARD!” Lethal rises, but Sonjay distracts the ref! Pac hops down, BOOTS Lethal, but Satnam trips Pac! And YANKS him out! The ref saw that one! The fans cheer as the ref EJECTS Satnam! Team Triple J is freaking out, but Lethal rains down fists on Pac. The ref counts, Lethal lets off but the fans sing ‘Hey hey hey! Goodbye~!” to Satnam. Lethal whips Pac hard into railing, then RAMS him into the POST! Lethal then runs to DROPKICK Pac down! Sonjay mockingly asks if Pac’s hurt, but the ref tells him to back off!

Lethal tells Sonjay to cool it so he doesn’t get kicked out. Lethal drags Pac up and into the ring while Sonjay mouths off to fans. Lethal drags Pac up, but Pac fires body shots. Lethal TOSSES Pac out, builds speed, and Lethal fakes the dive to Fargo Strut instead. The fans “WOO~” with Lethal and he smiles. Sonjay says Lethal’s the man! Lethal then goes out to fetch Pac, but Pac whips! Lethal reverses, Pac hits steel steps! Sonjay mocks Pac again with a fake apology, and Rampage goes picture in picture.

Lethal leaves Pac behind, and he counts along with the ring count. Pac is still down at 5 of 10, but he drags himself up with the apron. Pac flounders in at 8, but Lethal stomps him down! Lethal drags Pac up, bumps him off buckles, then stomps a mudhole. Lethal RAMS Pac into the corner, snapmares him into a chinlock, and he grinds Pac down. Pac endures, pries at the hold, and fights up. The fans rally as Pac breaks free! Pac ROCKS Lethal, CHOPS him, then CHOPS, CHOPS and CHOPS again! Pac whips Lethal, Lethal reverses then TOSSES Pac out! Lethal wants the ring count again, but that’s just all distraction so Sonjay can stomp away!

The fans boo and try to point Sonjay out, but he scurries away. Lethal gets the ref to finally count, and then joins in. Pac is still down at 5, drags himself over, and Lethal grows anxious. Pac rises up and drags himself in at 9! Lethal runs to ELBOW DROP! Cover, ROPEBREAK! Pac survives by a literal foot but Lethal drops elbow after elbow on that leg! Lethal just keeps going with elbow after elbow, then soaks up some heat before dropping a knee on the knee! Cover, TWO! Pac toughs it out but Lethal covers again, TWO! Lethal argues the count, the ref says it is a fair count, so Lethal drags Pac around by the leg.

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. A standing count starts, Pac drags himself up with ropes to stand at 5.

Pac storms up, blocks a shot to ROCK Lethal! Pac ROCKS Lethal again and again, then SOBATS! KICKS! SOBATS! Pac runs, to SHOTGUN BOOT! Lethal is dazed and Sonjay is worried as Pac goes up a corner. Pac watches like a hawk, to MISSILE DROPKICK! Cover, TWO! Lethal stays in this and Sonjay coaches him again. The fans rally for Pac as he watches Lethal rise again. Pac waistlocks but Lethal fights the lift. Lethal trips Pac, powers through, but Pac kicks and kicks and kicks! Lethal lets go, but he KICKS Pac’s leg out! Lethal drags Pac up, for a SHIN BREAKER! Then DRAGON SCREW! Then Lethal steps through, for the FIGURE FOUR!!

Pac endures, Sonjay tells him to quit, but the shoulders are down! ONE as Pac tilts to the side! Pac reaches out for ropes but Lethal thrashes and pulls on that leg! Pac fights over to the ROPEBREAK! Lethal lets go, the ref checks with Pac, but Pac says he’s still in this. Lethal rains down fists, then goes to a corner. The fans boo as Lethal climbs, and Lethal calls his shot. But Pac goes up to get a leg! Lethal CLUBS away on Pac, then drags him up top. Lethal reels Pac in, but Pac fights the lift! Pac back drops Lethal away! The fans fire up and Pac adjusts. Sonjay stresses out as Pac aims, but Sonjay gets on the apron!

Pac hops down, runs up and BOOTS Sonjay down! The fans cheer, but Lethal is lurking! Lethal runs in, Pac dodges, but Lethal switches to SNAP GERMAN! Lethal handsprings, but Pac sidesteps to run! 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
