PLAY BY PLAY

MJF is here!

Southaven is torn as the Wolf of Wrestling makes his way out after having shown his true colors last Wednesday Night Dynamite. MJF is back to wearing suits and scarves, and he already has a mic as he steps into the ring. The boos are louder than the cheers, and MJF says he knows everyone in this building is inbred and incredibly stupid, but he’d appreciate it that while he was talking, they unlike their mothers on their knees in a truck stop bathroom, would all kept their mouths shut. The fans boo but MJF tells Daniel Garcia, “You are nothing more than a pawn. You really thought MJF, the biggest star in AEW, you thought I was gonna give you a match at All In?

“No, man. That match was never gonna happen. I was always going to stab you in the back and break your scrawny little neck. And I’ll explain why later, but I gotta be honest with you, Danny. During this ruse, there was something you did that offended me. Let’s keep it real here, Danny, you’re a Make-A-Wish kid at best. And I was trying to grant you the greatest wish of them all. Was it real? No. But you didn’t know that. I offered you a match at Wembley Stadium against, let’s face it, the greatest wrestler who’s ever lived, and you didn’t answer. Well, Danny, after what I did to you, you ain’t gonna make it to All In. Hell, you’re never gonna wrestle again.

“But I’m not here to talk to Danny Garcia. I’m here to talk to you… Roll the clip.” MJF has production show on the tron, Dynamite on August 2nd, 2023. It was the time MJF explained ADHD came along with Rejection Sensitivity Disorder. MJF cannot regulate rejection based emotions and behaviors. And there was one thing he still remembers to this day, the incident of those bullies throwing quarters at him and calling him “Jew Boy.” MJF told himself that day that to survive in a world of scumbags, he had to become the worst scumbag of them all, and that he would betray others before they could betray him.

MJF back then said being a scumbag was easy. What was hard was being vulnerable. He knew if he opened himself up to be “Max,” and then got booed, it’d kill him being that little kid being bullied. But MJF also said he wasn’t afraid anymore! The fans cheered for him then, but MJF now gets boos. This MJF says he opened up to the fans, told us all that if they turned on him, it’d tear his heart out, and they didn’t give a damn! MJF did everything for the fans! He changed for the fans! He let his guard down and became friends with Adam Cole, he broke his body down, all for the fans! And how did they repay MJF?

After MJF’s best friend stabs him in the back, after Samoa Joe steals “Triple B,” MJF is writhing in pain at home, and he turns on Dynamite after World’s End. What do the fans do? They chanted “Thank You, Joe!” The fans chant for “JOE! JOE! JOE!” now. MJF says he was in physical therapy, trying to get function back in his arms, the fans discarded him for guys like Swerve, Okada, “and worst of all… that talentless hack, Will Ospreay!” MJF says what he did to Garcia wasn’t personal between the two of them. It was personal between MJF and the fans! And Garcia was just the beginning. MJF will take away everything we love, because everything we love SUCKS!

The fans boo but MJF says the fans have ruined the company MJF has built from the ground up with their garbage taste. MJF will fix AEW, and the only way to do that is with MJF on top! But no, the fans want Will Ospreay, don’t they? Yeah, they like Ospreay? The fans cheer, but MJF says the fans are too delusional to realize it, but Ospreay can’t help AEW like MJF can. Ospreay is a child! He doesn’t care about ticket sales, about making money. All Ospreay cares about is putting on good matches. Gasp, what a novel concept. The only ratings Ospreay cares about are those stars from Meltzer.

MJF is a grown ass man, and the ratings he cares about come from a guy named Nielsen! And so here’s an idea, Will! Let’s pop a number right here, right now! MJF will get medieval on you, bruv! Ospreay is “The Billy Goat?” Then how about MJF sacrifices him like one? No response and MJF says he knew it. But then surprise! Ospreay’s music hits now! Only for it to NOT be Ospreay. MJF says Ospreay is not coming because he is a two-faced, fickle, gutless coward. “Just like you.” This is Maxwell Jacob- NO, fans, you had your chance, shut your mouths! He is MJF, and you can thank him later. The Scumbag has gotten even worse, but will Ospreay take him out once and for all?

 

Backstage interview with The Conglomeration.

Lexy Nair is with Kyle O’Reilly, Mark Briscoe & Orange Cassidy and asks if they have any last words before their match tonight? Kyle says after Forbidden Door, he is bummed out. Mark says he ain’t bummed. Is Orange bummed out? Why? Cuz none of them won at Forbidden Door? Well, the word of the day is “Epiphany,” because Mark had one. Failure is just a figment of your imagination! It is just a stepping stone to the throne, a pitstop on the road to the top! They are in the shadow of one of the most historical cities in wrestling, Memphis, Tennessee! And The Conglomeration is about to put a historical ass kicking on The Iron Savages!

Mark says let’s get out there, pull their proverbial heads out of their proverbial asses and do this thing! The ROH World Champion is fired up, Kyle says he really knows how to pull a guy out of a dark abyss. Cassidy says he doesn’t care. He’s in a Pixies kinda mood, but will Freshly Squeezed, Violent Artist & Sussex County Chicken be feeling back on top after tonight?

Six Man Tag: The Conglomeration VS The Iron Savages!

Jacked Jameson tells the fat morons and skinny idiots to shut up! The Savages know the fans love these “Low T Losers” because they’re just like all of them. But these anorexic athletes don’t stand a chance! Mark Briscoe is the Chicken because his bones are brittle, and both Kyle and Cassidy look like they belong at the bottom of the evolutionary chart! These are the Iron Savages! Sippin’ sauce, livin’ hoss, and takin’ everyone to #TIDDYCITY! But as beefy and bulky as they are, will they be ready for a fired up force of nature?

The trios sort out and Kyle starts against Jameson, but then The Undisputed Kingdom shows up. Though, what did anyone expect with how Roderick Strong keeps thinking of himself as Kyle’s friend. Roddy, Taven & Bennett join commentary on stage, and Jameson says it is time to sip the sauce! He sips, then pumps up. Jameson and Kyle circle, Kyle KICKS, headlocks, and grinds the hold. Jameson powers out, Kyle RAMS him, but Jameson comes back to run Kyle over! Jameson goes for another sip, but Mark snatches the cup! Mark takes a CHUG, CHUG, CHUG! Mark is all fired up now! Mark CLOBBERS Jameson!

Bronson gets in, Mark dodges him and CLOBBERS Bronson! The fans fire up, Kyle sips, and Roddy says that’s not good, he has to watch his blood sugar. Kyle is all fire dup, he and Mark RAM Boulder! Boulder comes back to LARIAT Kyle, but Mark ENZIGIRIS! Bronson runs up, CLOBBERS Mark, but Kyle KICKS and KICKS and KICKS Bronson down! Boulder CLOBBERS Kyle, and then he warns Cassidy. Kyle CHOP BLOCKS Boulder, JAWBREAKERS Bronson, then runs Jameson gets a cheap shot in, so Kyle DECKS him! But then Boulder & Bronson CLOBBER Kyle! Boulder DECKS Mark, then Bronson runs to SENTON Kyle! Cover, TWO!

Bronson drags Kyle up, bumps him off buckles, then fires hands! The ref counts, Bronson short arm LARIATS! The Savages stand tall while Collision goes picture in picture.

The Savages soak up the heat and Bronson drags Kyle over. Tag to Jameson, the Savages mug Kyle, and Jameson RAMS into Kyle! Jameson throws elbows, stomps Kyle down, then tags Boulder. Boulder brings Kyle around to scoop and SLAM! Boulder soaks up heat, stomps around like an Earthquake, and then runs and SPLASHES down! Cover, TWO! Kyle stays in this but Boulder mocks Cassidy by putting hands in his “pockets.” Boulder kicks Kyle but Kyle fires strikes in return! Kyle runs, but Boulder runs him over! Boulder snarls, the fans rally up, but Boulder drags Kyle over. Boulder HIP DROPS Kyle, then tags in Bronson.

Bronson goes up the corner and he HIP DROPS Kyle, too! Tag to Jameson, and he flexes before he climbs. Jameson talks a lot of trash, then HIP DROPS onto knees! Collision returns to single picture with both men down and the fans rallying up! Kyle and Jameson crawl, hot tag to Bronson! Bronson grabs a leg, but Kyle hops forward, hot tag to Mark! Mark CHOPS and CHOPS and CHOPS Bronson! Boulder gets in but gets some REDNECK KUNG-FU! Bronson runs up but into a kick! Mark REDNECK KUNG-FU UPPERCUTS, then ROLLING ELBOWS! The fans fire up again, but Boulder kicks Mark.

Boulder flexes, whips, but Mark uses that to BOOT Jameson! Boulder runs in but Mark dodges! Boulder tumbles up and out! Mark reaches out for Cassidy, Cassidy doesn’t reach back, so Mark gives him a push. Cassidy gets fired up and he tags in! And he DIVES onto Jameson! Cassidy goes up and CROSSBODIES Bronson! Roddy isn’t impressed, but Cassidy keeps moving! Cassidy ducks ‘n’ dodges Boulder to tilt-o-whirl DDT! Cassidy kips up and the fans fire up. Roddy says that was impressive at least. Cassidy takes off his elbow pad, run sin, but Bronson catches him for a BEARHUG! Cassidy throws elbows to get free.

Bronson throws knees, snarls and shouts, “I’M GONNA BUST!” Bronson suplexes, but gets STUN DOG MILLIONAIRE! Cassidy keeps Bronson down so Mark can use him as a step, to FLY onto Boulder and Jameson! Kyle gets in, he and Cassidy FRESHLY SQUEEZED HIGH LOW! FLYING KNEE for Jameson, BLOCKBUSTER for Boulder! ORANGE PUNCH for Bronson! Cover, The Conglomeration wins!

Winners: The Conglomeration, by pinfall

Roddy says good stuff. He can’t wait to see Ishii again, by the way. He’ll slap that guy in the face. The Kingdom storm commentary, but Roddy keeps Taven & Bennett from going to the ring. They’ll settle this with Kyle and The Conglomeration later, but when and where will that be?

 

Jack Perry speaks.

“Someone once said that the true cost of anything is what you’re willing to sacrifice for it. A long time ago, I was the first challenger to the first ever TNT Champion. But I wasn’t ready then. Because I didn’t realize just how great that cost would be. But as of tonight, I’m paid in full. And I wanna go ahead and give that same opportunity to sacrifice everything and take this away from me. Because if you don’t… I will sacrifice you.” The Scapegoat is issuing an Open Challenge, who answers the call?

 

Backstage interview with Hangman Page.

Lexy Nair is with The Black Hat Cowboy, and brings up that his indefinite suspension was lifted so that he could be the Wild Card in the Owen Hart Foundation Tournament. The question on everyone’s mind would have to be then, “Why now?” Hangman repeats, “Why now?” Convenience. Not his, but theirs. The Elite didn’t care where Hangman was, how long he was gone, what was happening to him or his family. It didn’t matter, because the moment The Elite through they could use Hangman, they brought him back. But that isn’t why Hangman his here. Hangman says Lexy knows why, and Swerve knows why.

Hangman is going to burn through the rest of this tournament, he will go to Wembley Stadium, and he will right a wrong that should’ve ben handled a long time ago! Hangman swears to God, with his last breath, he will right this wrong, and BURN Swerve’s House to the ground! Lexy is very nervous as she says tonight, Hangman faces Jay White, who he has never defeated before. Hangman glares at Lexy, then storms off. Hangman is more than ready for a fight, will it be a real shootout between these Collision Cowboys?

 

Toni Storm w/ Mariah May & Luther VS Trish Adora w/ The Infantry!

While her protege is in the finals of the Women’s Owen Hart Foundation Tournament, The Leading Lady is leading by example by getting back in action. Will Storm once again have the spotlight on “Colli-jon?” Or will the AfroPunk look to upstage the AEW Women’s World Champion?

The bell rings and the fans rally up. The two circle, put up their dukes, and tie up. They goa round, Storm headlocks but Adora endures the grind. Adora powers up and pops out the back to headlock in return. Storm pops out the back to headlock in return. Adora powers up and out then RAMS shoulders! Storm stays up and eggs Adora on. Adora runs to RAM Storm again! The fans cheer and Storm pumps up. Storm runs, Adora follows then runs Storm over! Adora salutes, runs, but Storm trips her! Oklahoma Roll, TWO! Adora has a cradle, TWO! Storm stands, Adora trips her, and then pulls a leg into a cradle, TWO!

Storm storms up but Adora Alabama Lifts her! And swings her around, into the AIR RAID STRETCH! Storm endures and the fans rally up! Storm fights, Adora lets her down and snapmares her, to then have a motorcycle stretch! Adora steps over, and she bounces on Storm’s head! Adora then turns around, claps and the fans rally. Adora hooks the legs to a sunset flip, TWO! Storm flounders up but Adora pumps up. Adora ROCKS Storm, whips her to ropes, but Storm SHOTGUNS Adora back! Adora goes to the apron, Storm runs and HIP ATTACKS her to the floor! The Infantry is there to coach Adora but Storm asks for a standing ovation.

The fans give the standing ovation, and Storm sends us to commercial, so Collision goes picture in picture.

Storm marches around the outside, still ordering ovations, and the fans gladly give Storm what she wants. Storm does a full lap around the ring, comes back for Adora, and Adora BOOTS Storm down! Carlie Bravo & Shawn Dean are all fired up, but Luther & Mariah storm up on them! That’s not exactly a fair fight, though it’s unclear who has the advantage. But then Mariah & Luther salute? The Infantry return it, and everyone stands down. Adora drags Storm up and into the ring, Storm goes to a corner, and Adora stomps her. Adora drags Storm up, reels her in, and snap suplexes! Bridging cover, TWO!

Storm flounders to a corner, Adora storms up on her, and Adora ROCKS Storm with a forearm. Storm goes to another corner, and Adora CHOPS! Storm falls and flounders, Adora stalks her, and the fans rally as Collision goes to break.

Collision returns, Adora runs corner to corner, but Storm goes up and over! Storm runs in, she blocks boots and puts Adora in ropes, to DRAPING BACKSTABBER! Then Storm FISHERMAN SUPLEXES! Bridging cover, TWO! Not quite perfect but Storm won’t stop! Adora shoves Storm away, runs, but so does Storm! Adora scoops Storm for a SWINGING BACKBREAKER! Both women are down and the fans rally up. Mariah is worried for Storm as Storm grits her teeth. Adora brings Storm up, but Storm fires a forearm! Adora gives that back, they go back and forth! Storm JABS, JABS and JABS! Storm winds up, but Adora ducks!

Adora BASEMENT GERMAN SUPLEXES! Bridging cover, TWO! Storm escapes, but Adora goes corner to corner. Storm trips Adora, Adora hits buckles, and then Storm comes in, SWEET HIP MUSIC! And then DDT! Cover, TWO! Adora survives and the fans fire up! Storm drags Adora up, ROCKS her, then ROCKS her again. Adora rises, and she fires a forearm! They go back and forth, shot for shot! Adora roars, winds up, but Storm HEADBUTTS! Adora wobbles, but she BOOTS! Storm wobbles, Adora runs in, but Storm gets around to STORM ZERO!! Cover, Storm wins!

Winner: Toni Storm, by pinfall

Adora was a powerful costar, but like all supporting actresses, she let the Leading Lady shine brightest. Storm is on a roll heading for All In, but will she be meeting her protege in that title match? Or will it be the Babe with the Power once she becomes a TWO-TIME Queen of Harts?

 

AEW hears from Willow Nightingale and Mariah May.

The Babe with the Power says, “Last year, still in my rookie year here in AEW, excitedly entering the Owen Hart Foundation Tournament. This year, it’s not just about winning The Owen. Mariah May, I feel like you are in the same spot I was last year.” Mariah responds that if Willow’s The Babe with the Power, then call her The Chick with The Champ. Storm believes in Mariah. Storm believes that Mariah can win the Owen Hart Cup home to her family and friends at All In Wembley. Willow knows Mariah wants to have her moment in the spotlight in front of her whole family, but Willow’s had a chip on her shoulder the last year, because she sat on the couch and watched All In all alone.

Mariah says she will stop at nothing to bring The Cup home! This one’s for Storm! Powerhouse or protege, who gets to go All In with the AEW Women’s World Champion?

 

The Patriarchy speaks.

Christian Cage says last week, there were a lot of people left in awe when Jay White confronted The Patriarchy with his words. “Those same people were left in awe that Christian Cage seemingly let him get away with it. Well, Jay, this was never personal for me, but you made it persona. See, I simply promised my family the gift of the Trios Championships for their loyalty to me over the past year. I didn’t even know you were the Trios Champions! I had to Google who the Trios Champions were, that’s the type of run The Bang Bang Gang has been on.

“But I have to be honest with you, Jay, I’m not sure your head’s in the game anyway. Otherwise, why would you enter yourself into the Owen Hart Foundation Tournament? And it’s simple: That’s your exit strategy, isn’t it? And I can’t say I blame you. Look who you surrounded yourself with. Juice Robinson? The guy’s a child. The guy’s a child! Go suck on another fentanyl lollipop, you loser. And then you’ve got genetic waste of Billy Gunn, Austin & Colten. Actually… Colten has a little bit of promise, but that’s a story for another day.

“So Jay, I’m gonna do you a favor. I’m gonna take those Trios Championships off your hands, and I’ll do what I do best. I’m gonna revive them. I’m gonna take them to new heights. I’m gonna make them the most prestigious championships in AEW, and pave my road to the World Heavyweight Championship. And like I said, Jay, I’m doing you a favor. And I think you’re gonna make your boss, Tony Khan, very happy, and I think you’re gonna make the AEW fanbase very happy. Because I speak for all of us when I say they are tired of watching you contently tread water. I think they’d like to see The Switchblade they thought they were getting when they signed you here. Guns… Down.

The Patriarchy then looks over and sees someone is hiding. What’s this guy doing in his space? Come here. It’s Kip Sabian! And he apologizes, but… Speak up already! Kip says he lost his father. No disrespect. Oh, well, the apple doesn’t fall far, right? So Kip’s dad must’ve been a loser. But hey, at least he isn’t around to see what a disgrace Kip’s career has become. The good news? His dad is gonna get a whole lot worse. Killswitch (Luchasaurus), take care of this. Kip begs for mercy but he’s THROWN around backstage! Christian, Mother Shayna & Nick enjoy the show. Superbad’s super bad timing aside, will The Patriarchy really tear down The Bang Bang Gang?

 

AEW TNT Championship Open Challenge: Jack Perry VS ???

The Scapegoat said earlier tonight that he was either going to “sacrifice” his opponent tonight, or they are going to “sacrifice” in order to win. So then, with such stakes behind this match, who will step up to Jack Perry? Wait, Jurassic Express theme…? It’s MARKO STUNT! The fans can’t believe it, and neither can Jack! Is Perry’s past about to come back to haunt him?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see who lives that Jungle Life!

The bell rings and the fans fire up for their home state hero’s return. Marko and Jack stare down, and Marko says let’s do this. Jack tells Marko to just go away, don’t even bother trying. Marko HEADBUTTS instead! Mark fires off hands and the fans fire up! Jack shoves Marko away, then LARIATS him inside-out! The fans boo but Jack rains down forearms on Marko. Jack lets his hair down before he KICKS Marko in the back. Jack drags Marko up, but Marko fires body shots! So Jack CHOPS Marko down! Jack drags Marko up, CHOPS him again, but Southaven rallies up. Jack taunts the fans so they boo.

Jack drags Marko up to whip, but Marko BOOTS Jack! Marko ducks ‘n’ dodges to tilt-o-whirl, but Jack LAWN DARTS Marko into buckles! Cover, TWO!! Marko survives, and Jack laughs! Jack is almost amused by Marko toughing it out. The fans rally for Marko but Jack sits him up, to SLAP him down. Jack soaks up the heat, scuffs Marko around, and eggs Marko on. Marko SLAPS back! Jack kicks low, suplexes, but Marko RANAS through! Cover, TWO! Marko keeps moving, ducks ‘n’ dodges, tilt-o-whirl and CODE BREAKER! Jack flounders, Marko hurries to a corner and the fans are going wild!

Marko climbs, leaps, DRAGON RAN- NO!! Jack stops that to BUCKLE BOMB! Marko flops down, and Jack says time to sacrifice! GOAT KNEE! Cover, Jack wins!

Winner: Jack Perry, by pinfall (still AEW TNT Champion)

Jack literally rubs the championship in Marko’s face. The fans boo but Jack revels in it, who else will he “sacrifice” for the so-called great good?

 

The House of Black speaks.

Malakai says, “It’s interesting. This is one of the first times that I don’t know what to say. Perhaps that is the beauty of this little conversation we’re about to have. See, people constantly want to know what’s going on with us in regards to Buddy Matthews. How we feel about it. We don’t feel anything. See, we don’t sweat out our feelers the same way as most of you do. No, for us, revenge is not some straight line, as Mr. King so adequately put it. No. For us, revenge is an imbalanced scale, waiting to be tipped back into perfect balance. It is a shadow hiding in the dark, waiting to be put back into the light.”

Brody King then tells Christian Cage, “Even though we feel nothing, we promise that you will feel everything.” The Kings of the Black Throne disappear into the night, when and where will they choose to strike?

 

Claudio Castagnoli VS The Beast Mortis!

The Blackpool Combat Club has been on a roller coaster ride lately. Jon Moxley lost the IWGP World Heavyweight Championship, Wheeler Yuta has contenders gunning for his ROH Pure Championship, and Bryan Danielson will be in the finals of the Owen Hart Cup this Wednesday. So what is Claudio to do? Well, first he has to survive the monstrous minotaur! Will Claudio make it through The Beast Mortis to go for some gold this Summer? Or will Mortis prove to be The Swiss Superman’s Doomsday?

The bell rings and the two circle. They tie up, Claudio waistlocks, then he wrangles Mortis to the mat. Claudio facelocks, Mortis spins free to wrench, but Claudio rolls to kip up. Claudio wrenches, YANKS the arm, and has the wristlock. The fans cheer, but Mortis goes up the ropes to flip and wrench back! Mortis headlocks, Claudio powers out and they RAM shoulders! The fans cheer for “MEAT! MEAT! MEAT!” Claudio eggs Mortis on, Mortis runs, but Claudio follows! Only for Mortis to CHOP BLOCK Claudio! The fans are torn as Mortis storms up on Claudio and CLUBS him. Mortis headlocks but Claudio powers free.

Claudio whips, Mortis reverses, Claudio catches the hurdle for a BACKBREAKER! The fans fire up and Claudio runs up to DOUBLE STOMP! The fans cheer, Claudio brings Mortis up and whips him. Mortis reverses again, runs up and UPPERCUTS, LARIATS and GAMANGIRIS in the corner, to then SNAP POWERSLAM! Cover, ONE!! Claudio is tough but Mortis is mean. Mortis ROCKS Claudio, then he brings down the kneepads. Mortis goes corner to corner, but Claudio dodges! Mortis hits buckles, then falls out of the ring, onto a cameraman! The fans lose their minds over that one, but somehow both cameraman and Mortis get back up.

Only for Claudio to run up! Mortis moves, Claudio rolls back and flexes. The fans cheer, Claudio goes to the corner and checks with the cameraman. Cameraman is okay, so Claudio builds speed. Mortis slides in as Claudio slides out, then Mortis comes back, TORNILLO TOPE SUICIDA! Direct hit but Mortis’ leg still bothers him. The ref checks, Mortis gets to his feet, and fans boo as he stalks Claudio. Mortis puts Claudio in, RAMS into him, then slingshots to get moving! Claudio swings, Mortis ducks ‘n’ dodges to RANA! Claudio staggers up, Mortis runs in, but Claudio POSTS him! Claudio then drags Mortis back in for a BIG running back suplex!

The fans fire up with Claudio, and even chant “Whoop Dat Trick!” as Collision goes picture in picture.

Collision drags Mortis up, bumps him off buckles, and again, and again, and again! The ref counts, Claudio keeps going but lets off at 4. The fans applaud and Claudio brings Mortis back up. Claudio bumps Mortis off buckles again, then dribbles him some more! The ref counts, Claudio stops at 4, and Mortis slumps down in the corner. Claudio hears the fans and says okay, they’ll go again. Claudio gets Mortis to a third corner, and dribbles him off the buckle! The ref again counts, so Claudio again lets off at 4. Mortis slumps back down, but Claudio figures they should finish the lap! Claudio goes to the fourth corner, and he again dribbles Mortis!

The ref again counts, rather annoyed at this point, but Claudio still stops before 4. Claudio has the fans all fired up, and he then goes up a corner. Mortis stands, into the CROSSBODY! Cover, TWO! Claudio keeps on Mortis with a top wristlock. Mortis endures, even as Claudio steps over for leverage. Claudio shifts his grip, bends fingers, then goes back to the wristlock. Mortis still endures, fights around, and reaches out. Collision returns to single picture as Mortis fights up. Mortis ROCKS Claudio, Claudio ROCKS Mortis! They go forearm for forearm, CHOP for CHOP, and repeat! Claudio is feeling it, and he fires a flurry!

The fans fire up as Claudio whips corner to corner. Claudio runs in but into a BOOT! Mortis SLING DOGS! Claudio gets up but Mortis dodges to POP-UP SAMOAN DROP! Cover, TWO! Claudio sputters but he is still in this. Mortis snarls, the fans rally up, and Mortis runs up, but Claudio sends him into buckles! Claudio LARIATS, whips, but Mortis goes up and up and FLYING HEADBUTTS! Mortis rises, Claudio staggers and shakes out his arms. Mortis runs in, into an UPPERCUT! Claudio reels Mortis in, but Mortis back drops free! Claudio gets up, both men run, SPEAR!! But Mortis can’t make the cover!

The fans rally, Mortis crawls to a cover, TWO! Claudio crawls to ropes, Mortis rises and runs back in! Claudio ELBOWS Mortis first! Mortis returns again, jumps up, but Claudio DUMPS him out hard! The ref checks on Mortis but he stands again. That leg is holding up somehow, so Claudio goes put, high five to that cameraman! Claudio runs in to UPPERCUT Mortis against railing! The fans fire up and Claudio puts Mortis back in. Claudio then grabs the legs and the fans cheer! Mortis BOOTS free, then HEADBUTTS Claudio! Roll-up, TWO! Claudio runs in, into a spin and torture rack! RACK BACKBREAKER DROP!! Cover, TWO!!

Mortis seethes while Claudio writhes. Mortis drags Claudio up, lifts, but Claudio slips free! Claudio shoves, Mortis ELBOWS him! Mortis goes up, leaps, into an UPPERCUT! Claudio hears the fans fire up, so he gives ’em what they want! GIANT SWING!! Mortis goes around and around and around, for TEN! Claudio powers up, pumps up, and runs, runs and LARIATS!! Cover, Claudio wins!

Winner: Claudio Castagnoli, by pinfall

That’s six straight wins for the Swiss Superman! That’s usually the magic number, so will Claudio get himself a shot at some gold?

 

Backstage interview with Matthew Menard.

Lexy Nair is with the bandaged up Daddy Magic and says after what we saw on Dynamite, there are a lot of questions concerning Daniel Garcia’s condition. And obviously, Menard got roughed up, as well. How are they feeling? Not great, Lexy. Not at all. Concussion, headaches, light sensitivity, hence his sunglasses. But you wanna know Garcia’s condition? He is at home in Buffalo. He made it home, but he has lost all strength in the left side of his body. There is good news, though. Garcia will be making a full recovery. And good news for MJF, too. Because Menard promised Danny that Danny will get the satisfaction of being the first one to get his hands on MJF.

Menard says MJF won’t know when that happens. It could be six months from now, a year. But when that day comes, Max, when it comes, Menard promises MJF it won’t be the smooth dancing Daniel Garcia. No. Menard takes off the glasses to look right into the camera. MJF will be getting RED, DEATH. When and where will Garcia have his vengeance on the Wolf of Wrestling?

 

Program, activate.

A man jumps through a portal, and comes out the other side a hero! “Loading soon.” Was that… AEROSTAR?!

 

Serena Deeb speaks.

“Last week, we saw the return of my good friend, Riho, and Riho… I was just as surprised to see you as everybody else was. It is good to have you back. We have a history, people still to this day talk about the match we had at Double or Nothing 2021. And that’s what you call, making history. So if Riho wants to run this back, I’m fine with that. But please understand that I’m not the same wrestler that I was in 2021. I’m not the same woman that I was in 2021. See, I’ve been through so much in the past three years, but I’ve gotten so much stronger. And I’ve evolved into the best in-ring wrestler in this entire division.

“So Riho, you wanna do this again? Let’s do it. And we’re gonna find out if you’re really as you claim to be, on the same level as the Professor of Professional Wrestling.” Deeb smiles, having thrown down the challenge. Will the original AEW Women’s World Champion respond with actions rather than words? Or is she about to freeze up against the Coolest Wrestler Ever?

Riho VS Lady Frost!

The bell rings, the two circle, and the two tie up. Frost powers Riho to a corner, lets off quickly, and then Riho runs up. Frost gets around to waistlock, Riho switches and pushes Frost to ropes, but Frost bucks the O’Conner. Frost runs Riho over, covers, ONE as Riho goes Matrix! The fans fire up, Riho runs but Frost avoids the dropkick! Frost flips Riho, brings hers up, but Riho arm-drags! Riho runs in, whips, but Frost goes up and over. Frost handsprings, mule kicks, and runs to ROLLING NECKBREAKER! Cover, TWO! Frost is already annoyed but Riho drops back to a corner. Frost runs in but Riho moves!

Frost stay sin this but Riho stays cool as she brings Frost up. Riho bumps Frost off buckles, and Collision goes picture in picture.

Riho goes corner to corner and back again, to JUMP KNEE! Then BULLDOG! Cover, TWO! INTO A CROSSFACE! Frost endures, claws at the grip, and she rolls Riho to a cover, TWO! Riho lets go in time but Frost knees low! Frost bumps Riho off buckles, stomps a mudhole in, but lets off as the ref counts. Frost whips Riho corner to corner, Riho reverses. Riho runs in but into BOOTS! Frost then cartwheels over Riho, to basement dropkick! Frost drags Riho to a cover, TWO! Frost is seeing that toughness but she brings Riho up. Frost puts Riho in a corner, hushes the fans, then CHOPS! Riho is stinging but Frost says one more time!

Frost turns Riho around so she can CHOP again! Riho shouts from the pain, so Frost swings again. Riho dodges, and now she CHOPS! Frost frowns, there wasn’t enough on that. Riho says one more time then! And she CHOPS! That one Frost felt! Frost reels Riho in to suplex hard! Riho grits her teeth, Frost storms up on her, and Collision goes to break.

Collision returns and Frost has Riho down in the motorcycle stretch. The fans rally as Riho endures, and she fights to turn things around. Riho brings Frost up to ROCK her with forearm after forearm! Frost ROCKS Riho back, runs, but Riho gets around! Riho body shots, runs, RANA but not a clean one! Riho DROPKICKS Frost outta the ring! Frost hobbles, the fans rally, and Riho goes up and up to SUPER CROSSBODY! A clipping shot but enough to knock Frost down! Riho rises, Frost shakes out her legs. Riho puts Frost in, shakes out an arm, then goes up top. Riho aims to DIVING- NO, Frost avoids the stomp!

Riho rolls through, avoids the spin kick but not the ROUNDHOUSE! Frost cartwheels into the Alabama Lift, spin and CHILLA DRILLA! Cover, TWO?! Riho survives and Frost is shocked! Frost drags Riho to a drop zone, goes up, but Riho anchors her! Frost kicks at Riho, but Riho fires forearms! Frost shoves Riho, runs, but Riho KNEES her against ropes! Riho runs but Frost ROCKS her! Frost runs, Riho follows, they each ROCK the other! Frost OVERHEAD BELLY2BELLY SUPLEXES! The fans fire up and Frost snarls as she stomps Riho. Frost goes up the corner, for the MOONSAULT! Cover, TWO!!

Riho is still in this and Frost is beside herself! Frost drags Riho up, reels her in for a fireman’s carry, but Riho flails! Riho fights free, full nelsons, and SNAP DRAGON SUPLEXES! Shoutout to The Cleaner, and Riho wrenches to SOS!! AKA Run Hey! Cover, Riho wins!

Winner: Riho, by pinfall

It was a rough return to AEW, but the inaugural AEW Women’s World Champion wins out in the end! Frost shows respect to Riho, but is Riho’s bad arm now a prime target for Serena Deeb?

 

Backstage interview with Shane Taylor Promotions and Top Flight.

Some deja vu as Lexy mediates this meeting of trios. There is a lot of history here, but it will all come to a head next week on Rampage, in Memphis, Tennessee, when these trios have a Six Man Tag. Shane says that the last few weeks, these boys got a past. STP should’ve beat their asses back a few weeks ago. And while Dante Martin was playing on ladders with Lio, STP could’ve had Darius & Action “touched up.” Action says, “Could’ve? Well guess what? Wait’s over. Because next week, the six of us are settling this on Rampage, right here in Memphis, Tennessee!” Darius says Shane might think Top Flight is scared, but no one’s been ducking anyone.

So if STP wants to rumble, then let’s go. Dante brings up how Shane wants to say Dante was playing on ladders. Well, uh, at least Dante was on the PPV. And if he wants to bring up Lio Rush, isn’t he the one that cleaned house last time? Lee Moriarty says why wait ’til next week? Let’s go right now! Keep playing! Shane has #TAIGASTYLE stand down, and Ogogo says hey! This ain’t the jungle gym no more. This the fight game, and they’ll smash you up! STP heads out, are they going to ground Top Flight once and for all? Or will Darius, Dante & Action be too fast and too furious to be stopped?

 

BREAKING NEWS for Dynamite!

Tony Khan has put together quite the match, nicknaming it the “Global Glory Fatal 4 Way!” The Aussie Arrow, Kyle Fletcher VS The Swiss Superman, Claudio Castagnoli VS The British Bastard, Pac VS The Japanese Stone Pitbull, Tomohiro Ishii! A star-studded match, will the winner look to challenge for the International Championship in the near future?

 

2024 Men’s Owen Hart Cup Semifinal: Hangman Page VS Jay White w/ The Bang Bang Gang!

We saw The Black Hat crush the hopes of Jeff Jarrett on Dynamite when he was dealt as The Wild Card, but he also told Matthew & Nicholas to shove their self-serving apology. Will Hangman now make it real easy for Jay White to focus on the Trios Championships by knocking him out of the tournament? Or will we all Breathe with The Switchblade?

But wait, BREAKING NEWS via Bobby Cruise. The EVPs, the Young Bucks, have decided that Juice Robinson & The Gunns are to be ejected from the building! White throws a fit, as does the rest of the gang, and Hangman grumbles that this is The Bucks doing him more favors. But in the end, this will be a fair 1v1 match now. White claims Hangman got The Bucks to do this for him, he’s still Elite, but then Hangman RAMS White right into the corner! The ref has Hangman back off, and the bell rings. Hangman runs back in but White headlocks. Hangman powers out and runs White over! Then he stomps away on White!

White bails out, Hangman pursues, but White KNEES low. Hangman ROCKS White back! The fans fire up as they go around the way, and Hangman puts White in the ring. White stomps Hangman now, RAMS him into a corner, but Hangman CLUBS away on White! White crawls, Hangman stands him up and CHOPS! The fans “WOO~!” while White falls back to a corner. White kicks low, kicks some more, then fires forearms. White backs Hangman down, but Hangman DECKS him! Hangman scowls, the ref checks on White, and White revives. White also clings to the ref, but Hangman drags him up.

Hangman scoops White, for a FALL AWAY SLAM! The fans are torn while White flounders, but Hangman scowls as he rises up. White goes to the apron, Hangman storms over, triangle jump LARIAT HOTSHOT! White storms in to CHOP! And CHOP! And then he RAMS into Hangman! White CHOPS again, but Hangman shoves White. White returns, but Hangman BOOTS him! The ref checks White again but he’s okay to continue. White goes to the apron, Hangman storms over, and the fans rally up. Hangman drags White up, but White HOTSHOTS again! Hangman sputters his way to a corner, but he comes back to triangle jump LARIAT!

The fans fire up as Hangman goes out and RAMS White into barriers! Hangman dribbles White off the railing, and he soaks up the cheers and jeers as he goes back to the ring. Hangman refreshes the count, the fans rally for “COWBOY SH*T!” and Hangman hauls White up. Hangman puts White in, soaks up more cheers and jeers, then shows off the damage he did to the railing using White. Hangman storms in, BLADE- NO, Hangman slips free and he CLAWS White’s face! The ref reprimands but Hangman puts on a SLEEPER, then he SWINGS White! And he DROPS White, to then HAMMER away on him!

Hangman KICKS White, KICKS him more, but the ref has him let off as White bails out. The fans fire up while White flounders around, and Collision goes picture in picture.

Hangman seethes, and is White really egging him on? A ring count starts but Hangman goes out to fetch White. Hangman brings White up, but White RAMS Hangman into and over steel steps! The ref checks both guys and they’re somehow okay. Hangman get sup, and he LARIATS White and himself up and over railing! Hangman stands up, forehead busted open, but totally unfazed! Hangman TOSSES White back over the railing, and White scrambles into the ring. Hangman snarls as the crimson mask grows. Hangman steps in, stalks White, and drags him up. Hangman RAMS White into a corner, then puts him up top.

Hangman CHOPS White, White punches back! They brawl as Hangman works to climb up. White rains down fists right on the bloody forehead, then he BOOTS Hangman away! Collision returns as White hops down to CHOP! And CHOP! And CHOP again! Hangman ROCKS White and White goes back to a corner. Hangman runs up, but White dodges. White blocks Hangman’s boot to KNEE JAMMER! Then White grabs at the leg, but Hangman pushes him away. White blocks another kick, to DRAGON SCREW! Hangman hobbles to a corner, White UPPERCUTS! White JABS, JABS, CHOPS, repeat! The ref counts, White CHOPS and CHOPS and CHOPS!

Hangman HEADBUTTS back! Hangman swings, White dodges, and White CLAWS at Hangman’s eyes! The ref counts, White lets off, and he wipes Hangman’s blood on himself. White whips, Hangman reverses, White slides to a stop. Hangman takes a swing, White spins him into a DDT! Cover, TWO!! Hangman stays in this but White stays focused. White hauls Hangman up, but Hangman fights the urenage. Hangman ELBOWS White away, the fans rally, Hangman runs in. White ELOBWS Hangman back, BOOTS him again, then runs up, but into a fireman’s carry! But White claws free! And CHOPS again!

Hangman ROLLING ELBOWS White! White staggers, Hangman runs, but right into a FLATLINER!! White gets around to deadlift GERMAN SUPLEX! Both men are down and the fans are thunderous! White and Hangman crawl to the apron, and White brings Hangman up. But Hangman Alabama Lifts! White fights free and CHOPS! Hangman fires haymakers, then backs up. White wobbles, Hangman runs up, but White APRON FLATLINERS!! Hangman sputters, White crawls back up and drags Hangman into a waistlock. Hangman fights with elbows. Hangman runs and he POSTS White! The cameraman is almost collateral damage again!

White hobbles, Hangman reels him in, and APRON POWERBOMBS him!! The fans go nuts and the ring count is climbing, but Hangman seethes as he puts White in the ring. Hangman takes off the elbow pad, flips off the fans who want tables when this isn’t a No Disqualification match, and then he- NO, White falls over so Hangman has to stop his slingshot. Hangman storms in, White cradles him! TWO!! Hangman escapes that trap, but White BOOTS him to the apron! Hangman BOOTS back, but White grabs the leg! DRAPING DRAGON SCREW! White has a SLEEPER, but Hangman arm-drags free! POP-UP POWERBOMB!! Cover, TWO!!

Hangman is furious that White survives. Hangman drags White up, ROCKS him with haymaker after haymaker, then goes back to the apron. Hangman reloads, slingshots, and BUCK- URENAGE!! White covers, TWO!!! Hangman survives that turnaround but White reels him in! SLEEPER, for the- NO, Hangman fires elbows! But White still SNAP SLEEPER SUPLEXES! White roars, hauls Hangman up, BLADE- NO, Hangman slips free, Alabama Lifts, but White fights free of that! SNAP- NO, Hangman SHOVES White away, into the ref!! White is stunned, and Hangman lifts him! DEADEYE!! Cover, but no ref to count!

Hangman realizes what happened, and is even angrier than before! So Hangman rains down fists on White! Hangman takes off his belt to CHOKE White with it!! And then he LASHES White with it!! But here comes Double J! The fans fire up as the Last Outlaw storms in and snatches that strap! Hangman warns Jarrett, but White hits a SNAP SLEEPER SUPLEX!! Another ref hurries out here, Jarrett is escorted away, but wait! Christian Cage slips in!? He SPEARS White!!! The Patriarch gets away with that one, and “hides” behind the apron! Hangman loads up again, and he slingshots to BUCKSHOT!! Cover, Hangman wins!!

Winner: Hangman Page, by pinfall (advances to the finals)

Controversy and then some, and now Hangman heads to Calgary! Is the Black Hat going to stampede all over Bryan Danielson? Or will Hangman fail to slay the American Dragon? And as for Jay White, Christian Cage just made sure he has nothing better to do, will The Bang Bang Gang take aim at The Patriarchy?


My Thoughts:

A very good Collision, but it had the misfortune of going up against a great WWE MITB. Very good promo from MJF, namely that he called back to almost a year ago with his Face turn promo. I feel like his explanation of why he turned on Garcia was a bit convoluted, because clearly it was that Garcia made MJF an afterthought when Ospreay offered his title match. It would’ve worked better if MJF said he turned on Garcia because like the fans, Garcia chose Ospreay over him. Either way, we’re obviously getting MJF VS Ospreay for All In. And Menard had a great promo to put MJF on notice for Garcia’s return, and I feel like Garcia could make a “miraculous return” at All In once MJF VS Ospreay ends. Garcia goes after MJF, regardless if he has a title or not, and they take that to All Out.

Great promo from Conglomeration, real fun match from Conglomeration VS Iron Savages, and of course Undisputed Kingdom was around. I’m thinking the Six Man Tag of Conglomeration VS Kingdom is for All In, and with Cassidy’s souring mood, I wonder if he just goes berserk and Orange Punches everyone, The Kingdom and teammates, to become this rogue Tweener version of himself. Very good promo from Jack Perry to hype his AEW TNT Championship Open Challenge, and an honestly great surprise that Marko Stunt returned. But of course Jack won so that he’d have his first title defense already done with.

Toni Storm VS Trish Adora was a really good match, but I figured Storm was gonna win. Storm keeps her momentum up, and I feel like her character is still unaware that if Mariah wins the Cup, they have to face each other. I would love if Storm just expects Mariah to Finger Poke of Doom for her and then Mariah rebels to make it a competitive match, but who knows. Great just-because match from Claudio VS Mortis, though I was really worried for Mortis after falling on the cameraman. Claudio winning helps lead into that “Global Glory” Fatal 4. And if that match really is to help determine an International Championship #1 contender, it’d be fitting if it was Fletcher. Fletcher would find himself stuck between Ospreay and the Don Callis Family, and that’s good story.

Good promo from Serena Deeb, but uh, sorry, I didn’t even remember Deeb VS Riho was on Double or Nothing 2021. I barely remember any of Double or Nothing 2021 as it is. Good match from Riho VS Frost, but the back to back botches of the rana and the crossbody kinda killed the mood. Riho still won of course, she’s got momentum going into her match with Deeb. Good promo from STP and Top Flight, but for what feels like the 100th time, Tony Khan not paying attention to all the stories causes references like what Shane made tonight. The trios were supposed to have it out, but then TK puts Dante in the TNT Championship Ladder match, etc. At least now these trios will have it out, and maybe Lio Rush returns to have a part to play.

But hey, the main event still lived up to expectations. Hangman had a great promo, he really got fired up, and then even The Patriarchy’s story got involved. Good promo from The Patriarchy, too, especially with how they treated poor Kip. Maybe Kip ends up factoring into Patriarchy VS Bang Bang Gang, but Christian screwing White over in The Owen was some clever stuff. Hangman being in his own Tweener state makes for some good stuff, he’s just gonna be fighting everyone on the roster at this rate. Bryan VS Hangman is set, and Swerve VS Hangman at All In certainly feels like the move they’re going for. The Bucks also backhandedly helping is a good detail, it might compel Hangman to actually be on Team AEW for Blood & Guts.

My Score: 8.8/10

Backstage interview with The Outcasts.

Arkady Aura is with Saraya & Harley Cameron, and says we haven’t seen Saraya wrestle since her first round loss in the Women’s Owen Hart Cup. Harley speaks up and asks how that’s supposed to be Saraya’s fault. Why point the finger of blame at her? Maybe it is this company’s fault! Because Saraya has been spending this whole time training, getting “Wembley Ready,” and being an unproblematic icon! Saraya says Harley is right, and do you know why? Because AEW is scared of Saraya. The AEW Women’s Division is scared of her! Because she is the living legend, she understands.

Last year at All In, Saraya had the world at her feet! Now, they’re just keeping her off the show. Harley says doing All In Wembley without Saraya is like doing Beverly Hills Cop without Eddie Murphy! Saraya says yeah, that’s why they’re keeping her away. But they can’t do the show without her because she IS the show. All roads lead to Wembley, baby, and it doesn’t matter who she has to step on to get there. Then just who will The Outcasts take out in order to have their moment?

 

Chris Jericho & “Big Bill” Morrissey w/ Bryan Keith VS The Outrunners!

While The Learning Tree has to defend that “For The World” Championship this Wednesday on Dynamite, he and The Redwood are not shying away from competition. Will Jericho & Bill show the world they’re not afraid of big bad Minoru Suzuki? Or will Turbo Floyd & Truth Magnum be the ones to teach The Learning Tree a thing or two?

The teams sort out and Bill starts against Truth. The fans rally, Truth gets around to headlock, but Bill powers up to TOSS Truth away! Truth flounders to his corner, Turbo tags in, and Turbo steps up to Bill. Jericho isn’t even taking this match seriously, he’s checking his phone! Bill knees Turbo low, CLUBS him down, but Truth tags back in. Truth runs and leaps, but Bill catches him! Bill grins, gives a thumbs up, then SLAMS Truth down! Bill says the fans know what’s up. But then Turbo tags in and The Outrunners DOUBLE CLUB Bill! Bill just frowns…! Bill turns around, he runs up, but The Outrunners dodge to DOUBLE DROPKICK!

Bill stays up but The Outrunners fire up. They spin and handshake, while flexing! Bill frowns, Truth sees and warns Turbo. Turbo looks and Bill DECKS him! Bill DECKS Truth, too! Bill then runs to BOOT Truth out of the ring! Turbo staggers up, Jericho keeps checking his phone, but Turbo CHOPS! Bill sighs and Turbo begs for mercy. Bill puts Turbo in a corner, CHOPS him, then CHOPS again! And he fires off haymaker after haymaker! Bill laughs as he stomps a mudhole into Turbo! The ref counts but Bill keeps going! Bill lets off, laughs some more, and Jericho says look out. Truth CHOPS Bill, but then he begs for forgiveness.

Bill powers Truth to a corner with one hand! Then he runs to SPLASH Turbo! SPLASH for Truth, SPLASH for Turbo! BOOT for Truth, and then Bill choke grips Turbo. SKYSCRAPER CHOKE SLAM!! And then he tags Jericho! Jericho smirks and waves to the fans. “Hi, guys~!” Cover, Jericho & Bill win!

Winners: Chris Jericho & “Big Bill” Morrissey, by pinfall

Bad Apple Keith kicks Truth out of the ring, then he stands tall with his guys. Keith tells the Outrunners to respect Chris Jericho, but he and Bill won’t be around to help Jericho on Wednesday. Will Jericho be able to survive Minoru Suzuki in the shadow of Blood & Guts? Or will Suzuki tear down The Learning Tree #ForTheWorld?

Wait, speaking of Suzuki, here he comes! He has his own match tonight, but he wants to look Jericho in the eye one more time before Dynamite. Will the Meanest Man in the World make an example out of The Butcher?

Minoru Suzuki VS The Butcher!

Rampage returns and The Butcher is already in the ring. The bell rings and Butcher talks some smack on Suzuki. Butcher then fires a forearm, but Suzuki comes back with a forearm of his own.

Butcher half nelsons, but Suzuki slips around to waistlock. Butcher elbows free, runs, but Suzuki follows, drop steps to get around, and has the SLEEPER! Suzuki wrangles Butcher, squeezes tight, but Butcher endures. Suzuki spins Butcher around and reels him in, and the fans fire up for the Gotch Lift! Butcher’s big, but Suzuki still lifts him, holds him up, and then PILEDRIVERS!! Cover, Suzuki wins!

Winner: Minoru Suzuki, by pinfall

A gritty fight for Suzuki and Butcher, and this was in a normal match! What won’t Suzuki do to Jericho when it is FTW Rules?

 

The Conglomeration speaks.

Mark Briscoe says, “For those of you who may or may not have been living under a rock for the past couple months, you are looking at the group that has come to be known as The Conglomeration. You know about my main man with the game plan, OC, and Kyle O’Reilly. Let me introduce to you Tomohiro Ishii, henceforth to be known as Big Time! That’s right! Here in The Conglomeration, there is only two rules. First and foremost, you gotta be down to conglomerate. And secondly, you cannot in any way, shape or form, be a s*it head!” Kyle shrugs and nods, because it’s true.

Mark then says that brings us to the word of the day! The word of the day is… Discombobulation! Kyle asks the country of origin. American! Can he use it in a sentence? In the midst of Mark’s discombobulation, Roderick Strong cracked him in the jaw with a knee, and stood over him, holding up Mark’s ROH World Championship high in the air! Now that done pissed Mark off, Roddy! He’s known Roddy a long time, and Roddy knows better than that! So next week, Death Before Dishonor, Mark has something for Roddy!

But before that, tomorrow night’s Collision, #BigTime Ishii is going to take Roddy on 1v1! No Kingdom, no Conglomeration, and damn sure no Don Callis Family at ringside! Roddy VS Ishii, and we’ll show y’all how we do in The Conglomeration! Because they’re ’bout to RARARARARA!! The Chicken is all fired up, but will the Stone Pitbull be able to take a big bite out of the Savior of the Backbreaker?

 

Kris Statlander w/ Stokely Hathaway VS Sydni Winnell!

The Galaxy’s Greatest Traitor knows The Babe with the Power wants payback on her just as badly as she wants to run Willow’s life. But while Willow went and won the CMLL Women’s World Championship, Kris has just been grumbling and plotting with Big Stoke. Will Kris make an example out of Sydni tonight? Or will the Heart of Hutchinson, Kansas be unbreakable?

The bell rings and Kris DISCUS LARIATS right away! Stoke fires up but the fans are torn as Kris hauls Sydni back up. Kris ROCKS Sydni, CHOPS her, then fires off haymakers in the corner! The ref counts, Kris stomps a mudhole in, then she digs her boots in. The ref counts, Kris gets in his face about it, then goes back to Sydni. Kris drags Sydni up to snap suplex! Sydni flounders but Stokely smiles. Kris runs corner to corner, UPPERCUTS, then goes side to side, but Sydni ELBOWS her! Sydni fires forearm snow and has Kris in a corner! The fans fire up, Sydni fires up, and she whips. Kris reverses to then scoop and pop Sydni around!

Kris tucks Sydni in for STATURDAY NIGHT FEVER!! Cover, Kris wins!

Winner: Kris Statlander, by pinfall

As Stokely says, every night is #StaturdayNight, especially when Kris wins like that. She has Stoke stand on her while she does push-ups just to show off, but will Kris be ready when Willow returns with a vengeance?

 

Holo.grm loads up.

Whoever this mysterious masked man is, he is ready, and he promises that tomorrow night on Collision, we will see him debut! Will Holo.grm prove to be more than meets the eye?

 

BREAKING NEWS for Collision!

Collision is already stacked with Strong VS Ishii, Holo.grm’s debut, and the Unified World Trios Championship match, The Patriarchy VS The Bang Bang Gang, but Skye Blue’s challenge to Hikaru Shida has been answered! Will the Shining Samurai cut through the Chicago Skye to find her way back to the top of the ranks? We’ll also see Darby Allin return to action against The Beast Mortis! Will The Relentless One sharpen his edge for Blood & Guts? Plus, the Lumberjack match has been made official! Thunder Rosa VS Deonna Purrazzo, with other AEW stars all around ringside, will this be where La Mera Mera and The Virtuosa finally settle the score?

 

The Lucha Brothers w/ Alex Abrahantes VS Private Party!

Penta El Zero Miedo & Rey Fenix are looking to get in on the tag title chase, but so are Marq Quen & Isiah Kassidy. While The Acclaimed still have to shoot their shot at The Young Bucks, which team will be waiting for them on the other side?

The teams sort out and Fenix starts against Brother Zay. The fans rally, Zay offers a handshake, and Fenix takes it. But then Fenix ROCKS Zay! Zay ROCKS Fenix back, they fire forearms, and Zay fires forearms again and again. Zay whips, Fenix springboards to CROSSBODY! Fenix kicks, SOBATS, KICKS a leg, then kicks again, but Zay blocks! Zay steps over, GAMANGIRI! Zay runs, but Fenix pops him up, only for Zay to RANA! Zay whips, Fenix reverses but Zay reverses back.

Quen steps up to Penta, and Penta says uno momento. Penta dramatically takes off his glove, but Quen says no, let him. “SHOTS! SHOTS!” Penta says okay, listen! “CERO! MIEDO!” Penta pie faces Quen, so Quen comes back to say “SHOTS!” “CERO! MIEDO!” “SHOTS!” They go back and forth, taunt for taunt, then Penta CHOPS! Quen is stinging but he composes himself. Quen comes back, CHOPS, but that hurts his hand more than it does Penta’s body! Penta says okay, and he unbuttons Quen’s shirt, to CHOP him down! The fans fire up with Penta as he does a “SHOTS! SHOTS!” dance! So Quen returns to fire forearms!

Quen ROCKS Penta, runs, but Penta SUPERKICKS! “CERO! MIEDO!” Penta runs but Quen BOOTS him down! Quen nods, runs up, but DOUBLE LARIATS collide! Both men stay up, Penta blocks a kick to HEEL KICK, only for Quen to ROUNDHOUSE back! Both men wobble, then they DOUBLE ROUNDHOUSE! Both men fall and the fans fire back up! Quen and Penta crawl, hot tags to Zay and Fenix! Fenix ROCKS Zay, Zay ROCKS Fenix, and Fenix fires off a strike fest! Fenix reels Zay in, “ANIMO!” But Zay wrenches out to facelock back! But Fenix fights the suplex, wrenches out, and KICKS Zay!

Fenix reels Zay in, but then Zay wrenches out. Zay reels Fenix back in, but Fenix wrenches out to mule kick. Fenix reels Zay in, “ANIMO!” but Zay wrenches out to ROCK Fenix! Zay eggs Fenix on, pie faces, and he fires a forearm! Fenix fires back, they go back and forth, and the fans rally up. Fenix and Zay huff ‘n’ puff, and they keep throwing shots!

Fenix survives and shocks Zay! The fans rally up and Zay brings Fenix up. Tag to Quen, and Private Party puts Fenix up top. Quen runs up, GIN- NO, Fenix holds onto the corner and Quen tumbles! Penta also waistlocks Zay but Zay fights free with elbows. Penta shoves Zay so that Fenix can tightrope walk PENALTY KICK! Then Penta SLINGBLADES Zay down! Quen gets in, he gets a SLINGBLADE, too!

The fans fire up for “CERO! MIEDO!” Penta brings Quen in but Quen slips free and shoves Penta into Fenix! Fenix lands on his firebird and Quen helps Zay up. GIN & JUICE!! Cover, but Penta returns to break it and hit a DESTROYER on Zay!! Quen is shocked while Little Rock is thunderous! “This is Awesome!” as “A E DUB!” gives us this main event. Quen drags Fenix up but Fenix CHOPS! Fenix eggs Quen on so Quen stomps away on him! Quen drags Fenix up, reels him in, but Fenix wrenches out to underhook and BUTTERFLY ANARCHY! Cover, TWO!! Fenix tags Penta and they aim at Zay. DOUBLE SUPERKICKS!

Winners: The Lucha Brothers, by pinfall

Private Party put up a fight to be sure, but Penta y Fenix just wanted it that much more! Will the Lucha Brothers be watching Blood & Guts very, very closely?


My Thoughts:

A great episode of Rampage here, and even the squash matches served some purpose. Kris crushing Sydni was mostly for momentum, but it felt like that was the first real showing of Kris’ Heel attitude with her trash talking the whole time. Jericho letting Bill do all the work against The Outrunners was naturally how that match was going, but it works perfectly in character and story for them. And Jericho crossing paths with Suzuki before Suzuki puts Butcher away rather quickly was good, too. The go home math is therefore even ahead of their FTW Championship match, but I wonder if Jericho was texting someone who could interfere for him since Keith & Bill can’t. But it can’t be Jeff Cobb, though, he’s locked in for NJPW’s G1 Climax.

Very good promo from The Outcasts, and while Toni Storm VS Mariah May is one title match and Mercedes Mone VS Britt Baker is another, Saraya could end up putting out an open challenge and it is answered by someone big from Stardom or CMLL for a first-time-ever kind of match to make All In even more historic. Great tag team main event from Lucha Brothers VS Private Party, with it mostly being for momentum. Private Party has finally been back on track now that both guys are healthy, but Lucha Bros winning out made sense. Penta & Fenix have been great as a team and as individuals, they’re both primed to take on just about any team or even singles champs if needed.

And great opener from The Conglomeration and The Undisputed Kingdom, even though I’m surprised they did such a Six Man Tag already. The Conglomeration winning could still feed into my idea that Cassidy & Kyle get an ROH Tag Team Championship match at Death Before Dishonor, but it also gives us a reason for Ishii VS Roddy tomorrow night. Great promo from Mark Briscoe in that, too, he continues to be one of the best underappreciated promo guys in all of wrestling today. I feel like Mark is going to retain the title against Roddy given how Shane Taylor is gunning for Mark, but that really depends on if Tony Khan is even paying attention to his own shows.

My Score: 8.7/10

AEW International Championship: Will Ospreay VS MJF!

Like many of us, The Aerial Assassin despise the Wolf of Wrestling for how he disrespected and used Daniel Garcia just to send a message. But also like many, Ospreay at least acknowledges and respects that this form of Maxwell Jacob Friedman is his most dangerous. Will Ospreay be able to put down AEW’s Ultimate Scumbag? Or will even the #BillyGOAT not be on the level of the devil?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see who ignites episode 250!

The bell rings and the fans cheer while the two stare down. Ospreay gets the fans even more fired up, and then MJF bails out. The fans boo but MJF just hops the railing. MJF splashes fans with their own water! MJF then lounges on the barriers, offers a fist bump, but the fans just flip him off. So MJF rips a fan’s sign up and throws it back! MJF goes back to the ring, tells fans to shut up, and he approaches Ospreay. Only to dodge and strut, then swivel the hips. The fans boo but Ospreay smirks, this is the MJF he knew he was getting. They tie up, MJF wrenches to hammerlock, but Ospreay headlocks.

MJF powers up to wrench and WRING Ospreay, but Ospreay handsprings through, and copies the strut! Ospreay shows he can swivel hips, too! The fans cheer but MJF sarcastically says Ospreay’s clever. The two tie up, MJF headlocks, but the fans sing, “OSPRAEY~ OSPREAY OSPREAY OSPREAY~!” MJF is annoyed, Ospreay powers up and out, then things speed up. Ospreay hurdles then drops down to trip MJF up! MJF ducks the Hidden Blade to hit a headlock takeover! Ospreay headscissors, MJF kips free, and roles reverse as Ospreay headlocks for the takeover. MJF headscissors but Ospreay kips free.

MJF ducks the Penalty Kick, avoids the standing moonsault, then bobs ‘n’ weaves to avoid Ospreay’s punches and kicks. MJF shoves Ospreay, Ospreay springboards but MJF avoids that, too! MJF runs in, Ospreay dodges to handspring, but MJF gets under! Ospreay superhero lands, and the fans are thunderous while MJF is stunned! The fans cheer “A E DUB! A E DUB!” for making this the opener! MJF is annoyed, but he and Ospreay tie up. MJF says Ospreay pulled hair! The fans boo because of course MJF is lying. MJF and Ospreay reset, tie up, and again MJF claims hair pulling. But then MJF pulls hair!

MJF puts Ospreay on the ropes, the ref counts, and MJF lets off, to take a swing! Ospreay dodges and then LARIATS MJF up and out! The fans fire up and Ospreay builds speed, only for MJF to get away. MJF says not today, but then Ospreay just changes course and he FLIES out onto MJF! The fans fire up and high-five Ospreay before he puts MJF in. Ospreay HOTSHOTS MJF, runs and BOOTS, then he hits as BIG back suplex! Cover, TWO! Ospreay prepares the elbow and the fans fire up. Ospreay aims but MJF scrambles to the apron. The fans boo, Ospreay storms over, but MJF YANKS Ospreay into buckles!

MJF stomps a mudhole in, drags Ospreay up to whip and WRING him into the corner! Ospreay flounders and MJF soaks up the heat. Then he blows snot at the fans and mocks them! MJF goes back to Ospreay, clamps onto an arm, and the fans rally and duel as Ospreay endures. Ospreay fights up, throws body shots, then forearms. MJF throws Ospreay down by his hair! The fans boo but MJF just soaks it up. MJF says he didn’t do anything. Then he clamps on with a chinlock and grinds Ospreay down. Ospreay fights up to JAWBREAKER free! Ospreay runs but MJF kitchen sink knees! MJF hauls Ospreay up to back suplex, but Ospreay lands out!

Ospreay reels MJF in to back suplex, but MJF lands out! MJF back suplexes, Ospreay lands out, into a STUNNER! Cover, TWO! MJF’s annoyed his Osaka Street Cutter, or perhaps Long Island Street Cutter, didn’t end this, but he storms after Ospreay. Ospreay is on the apron, MJF reels him in, HEAT- NO! Ospreay shoves MJF away, but MJF slingshots Ospreay into another STUNNER! Cover, TWO!! Ospreay survives and MJF is frustrated. The fans rally for Ospreay as he goes to the apron, but MJF storms over. MJF drags Ospreay in again, tries but Ospreay again denies him the Heatseeker! So MJF tries the slingshot, but Ospreay stops that!

Ospreay GAMANGIRIS MJF away, goes up a corner, and PIP PIP CHEERIO! Both men are down and the fans fire up! Ospreay rises but so does MJF. Ospreay fires haymakers on MJF first, then whips. MJF reverses but Ospreay CLOBBERS him! MJF bails out but Ospreay builds speed! Ospreay handsprings to SASUKE SPECIAL! The fans are thunderous but Ospreay takes a moment to check his ribs and catch his breath. Ospreay storms up on MJF, puts him in the ring, then goes up a corner. The fans fire up for the MOONSAULT, but MJF moves! Ospreay lands out, MOONSAULTS again, but MJF dodges again!

But the STANDING SHOOTING STAR hits! Cover, TWO! So Ospreay goes up and up to SKY TWISTER! Cover, TWO!! MJF survives the onslaught but Ospreay loads up that elbow! “This is Awesome!” as Ospreay aims again. MJF slowly rises, Ospreay runs up, but MJF bails out again! The fans continue to boo but Ospreay PLANCHAS! Down goes MJF and Ospreay high-fives more fans. And then Ospreay confiscates the timekeeper’s table! The fans are thunderous as Ospreay brings the furniture over to ringside. MJF hurries away into the ring now! Ospreay pursues as we see the fear on MJF’s face.

Ospreay CHOPS MJF in the corner! Ospreay stands MJF up to CHOP him again! The fans “WOO~” and Ospreay runs, but MJF pops him up to SUPERKICK him! MJF goes up, but Ospreay avoids the Panama City/Long Island Sunrise, but then MJF knees low! MJF reels Ospreay in but Ospreay powers out. Ospreay whips MJF to the corner, MJF goes up and over, but then MJF’s knee jams! Ospreay grabs that leg but it was a trap! MJF steps over and hits as STUFF PILEDRIVER!! Cover, TWO!! Ospreay survives and both men are down again. The fans rally up while both men stir, and MJF rises first.

MJF shows off that the leg is just fine, then does the Daniel Garcia dance just to mock him. MJF then drops an elbow on Ospreay’s leg. Ospreay CLUBS at MJF but MJF keeps the toehold. Ospreay fishhooks MJF and MJF lets go. Ospreay CHOPS, and CHOPS, then runs, but into a back drop! MJF leans on the ropes while he catches his breath, and the fans rally again. MJF storms back over, KNEES the leg, then smirks. MJF steps through, ties the legs up, and has the FIGURE FOUR! The fans “WOO~,” even as MJF SLAPS Ospreay! And SLAPS him! MJF thrashes the hold, but Ospreay endures. Ospreay’s shoulders are down, TWO as he sits back up!

Ospreay pries at the leglock, and the fans rally up as he works to turn things over. MJF fights that back, thrashes some more, but Ospreay grits his teeth. The fans rally harder and harder as Ospreay fights his way over, and he turns the hold onto MJF! MJF endures now, reaches out while shouting in pain, and he flails in order to turn things back onto Ospreay! The fans boo but Ospreay endures again. Ospreay drags MJF along, reaches out, and has the ROPEBREAK! The ref counts but MJF lets go at 4. MJF is frustrated but then he drags Ospreay up and to a corner. MJF CHOPS, takes a moment, then CHOPS again!

MJF wrenches, whips, but Ospreay can’t even make it all the way! MJF smirks while the ref checks Ospreay. Ospreay shakes out the leg, refusing to admit defeat. MJF storms over, stands Ospreay up, and CHOPS! Ospreay hobbles, so MJF CLAWS Ospreay’s back! MJF whips, Ospreay barely makes it to ropes! MJF wants after Ospreay like a shark with blood in the water, but Ospreay sits on the apron. MJF tells off the fans cheering Ospreay, but Ospreay is somehow still in this. So MJF CLAWS Ospreay’s face! The fans boo but MJF soaks it up. Ospreay throws body shots and haymakers! Ospreay CHOPS and MJF wobbles!

Ospreay CHOPS again, MJF flails more. Ospreay snarls, runs, but MJF CHOP BLOCKS the legs! MJF covers, TWO! MJF frowns but he stomps Ospreay’s leg. MJF then stands Ospreay up to CLUB him on the neck!

The fans fire up again while Ospreay again clutches the leg.

Ospreay rises, but MJF KNEES the knee! Then MJF calls his shot! MJF suplexes, but STUN DOG MILLIONAIRE hits first! MJF wobbles around, Ospreay calls his shot now! Springboard, OSCUTTER!! But MJF flops all the way to ropes! Ospreay has to crawl his way over, and MJF flops to the floor! MJF’s ring awareness is strong but Ospreay pursues. Ospreay drags MJF up to put him in the ring, and then onto the apron. Ospreay uses a corner to go up and APRON OSCUTTER FLOP as MJF steps back! Ospreay writhes, signaling to his arm, and the ref hurries to check. MJF may have gotten lucky here, as Dynamite goes picture in picture.

The ref has Ospreay go around the way but MJF is in pursuit! MJF shows no mercy as he grabs that bad arm, and RAMS Ospreay into steel steps! MJF stands on the steps to soak up all the heat, as well as talk some trash on Ospreay. It’s certainly in the vain of MJF is who AEW needs, not Ospreay. MJF drags Ospreay up and into the ring, then takes his time to taunt fans over the table. He flips the fans off, he isn’t gonna do what they want. MJF then goes back to Ospreay, grabs the bad arm, and he stands on it, to then STOMP it! MJF soaks up more heat as he paces around Ospreay, then clamps onto the arm again.

Ospreay endures the mounted armlock, and he fights to his feet. Now Ospreay pulls hair, but MJF throws Ospreay down by the arm. MJF grinds that shoulder but Ospreay still endures.

Ospreay fist bumps the girl and drags MJF back up. Ospreay ROCKS MJF with a right and follows him down the stairs. Ospreay CHOPS MJF to keep him moving, but MJF takes a detour into the seats. So Ospreay makes MJF take a seat and punches down hands! The fans count along, Ospreay winds up, and hits TEN!

MJF flounders around, Ospreay shows that there’s one guy still wearing an MJF Kangaroo Kick shirt, and then pursues MJF. MJF pokes Ospreay right in the eyes! MJF CLUBS Ospreay, but Ospreay kicks MJF! Ospreay SMACKS MJF off the trash can! The fans fire up and Ospreay DUMPS MJF into the trash can! MJF kicks and flails but Ospreay BOOTS the can! MJF falls out, stumbles away, and Ospreay pursues. They finally return to ringside, and Ospreay refreshes the count that was never happening anyway. Ospreay then drags MJF over to the table, punches him onto it, then goes up the steel steps.

Ospreay then goes up the corner and fans are thunderous already! Ospreay aims, but MJF hurries off the table. The fans boo and Ospreay sighs, but Ospreay hops down to go after MJF. But MJF gut wrenches! Ospreay victory rolls, TWO! MJF has the victory roll, TWO! Ospreay has it, TWO! MJF is up, Ospreay gets around and hops on, POISON-RANA! MJF flounders to a corner, Ospreay runs up, but MJF pops him up! Another SUPERKICK as Ospreay is upside-down! MJF goes up, LONG ISLAND SUNRISE!! Cover, TWO!?! The fans are electric as Ospreay survives another hard shot! Ospreay then goes to the apron and then the floor.

MJF pursues, and we return to the table. MJF puts Ospreay on the table and then goes up the apron. The fans rally as MJF actually climbs the corner. MJF reaches the top, but then Ospreay slips off the table! The fans still boo, they want that table to see some action. MJF hops down, talks smack on Ospreay, then CHOPS him. MJF BITES Ospreay’s arm! The fans boo and tell MJF he’s sick! The ref counts, MJF lets off, but he then ROCKS Ospreay with a haymaker. MJF again mocks Daniel Garcia, even asking if Garcia has feeling in his arms again. MJF then whips Ospreay hard into railing! Ospreay almost ends up in the front row!

MJF makes Ospreay take a seat, and he CLAWS at Ospreay’s face! MJF refreshes the ring count, then runs in at Ospreay, to BOOT Ospreay against railing! MJF hops up to soak up more heat, then he refreshes with some water. That he then splashes at fans. MJF stalks Ospreay back to the table, refreshes the count, and then asks, “Ospreay who?” MJF stands Ospreay up to whip, but Ospreay goes up onto the railing, to OSCUTTER to the floor! The fans fire up again while both men are down! Ospreay clutches the bad leg and the bad arm, but he manages to rise up and put MJF in. Ospreay then swings, but into MJF’s dragon sleeper!

But Ospreay flips things around! The fans cheer, as Ospreay hits CROSS RHODES!! Cover, TWO!!! MJF survives, but Ospreay storms after him in a corner. MJF uses the ref as a shield, then he pokes Ospreay in the eyes! MJF goes up to DOUBLE STOMP the bad arm! MJF reels Ospreay in, hammerlock and lift, DDT!! Cover, TWO!!! Ospreay survives and the fans continue to rally behind him. MJF is frustrated but he pursues Ospreay to the apron. MJF drags Ospreay through ropes, and HEAT- NO! Ospreay throws MJF away, MJF’s leg “jams,” and Ospreay takes aim. Ospreay springboards but MJF hits ropes to trip him up!

Ospreay gets stuck up there, MJF goes up to LEAPING LARIAT!! Cover, TWO?!? MJF is beside himself as Ospreay survives again! MJF stalks Ospreay to the apron, drags him up, and gut wrenches! The fans freak out but Ospreay flails and kicks! Ospreay turns things around onto MJF, but MJF KICKS Ospreay! MJF then suplexes, but Ospreay slips free! Ospreay waistlocks but the arm won’t let him lift! So Ospreay SUPERKICKS MJF instead! MJF wobbles, Ospreay reels him in, and tucks him for an APRON STYLES CLASH!!! Both men fall to the floor and Little Rock is losing its collective mind right now!

Ospreay drags MJF up and into the ring, covers, TWO!!!! MJF survives but Ospreay is too tired to be upset. Ospreay just rises up, brings MJF to his feet, and reels him in. Even with one arm, Ospreay hits a LAST RIDE!! Cover, TWO!! MJF reminds us why he was once the longest reigning AEW World Champion while Dynamite goes back to picture in picture.

Ospreay shakes out the arms, but Doc Sampson is called over to check. Doc checks that arm, from lifting to turning. Then Doc checks with Ospreay if he wants to do “that,” and Ospreay says go for it. Doc YANKS Ospreay’s arm to pop it back in place! Ospreay clutches the arm again but it seems that did the trick. Ospreay has the fans fired up again, and he drags MJF up for Kawada Kicks! Ospreay stands over MJF while Dynamite goes to break.

Dynamite 250 returns and Ospreay calls his shot. MJF rises, and he spins Ospreay around to BITE Ospreay’s face! The fans boo, MJF runs, but Ospreay HIDDEN BLADES!! Cover, TWO!!! MJF survives a shot to the face but Ospreay roars! The fans are thunderous as MJF sits up, into a BUZZSAW! MULE KICK! OSC- NO, MJF stops the cutter to gut wrench, and TOMBSTONE!! Cover, TWO?!?! Ospreay survives again and the fans again cheer “A E DUB! A E DUB!” for giving us this instant classic. MJF snarls, and he uses wrist tape to CHOKE Ospreay! The ref reprimands, MJF lets off, and MJF goes to the corner with Ospreay.

MJF wrenches the bad arm, whips him hard into the corner, and Ospreay falls. The fans boo but MJF grins as he rises up. MJF storms over to Ospreay, stands him up and wrenches to an ELBOW BREAKER! MJF whips again, and harder! Ospreay falls back, MJF flexes, but the fans boo. MJF mocks the United Empire crown then says shove it. MJF drags Ospreay up, whips him corner to corner again, but Ospreay reveres! MJF tumbles up, comes back, and Ospreay CHOPS! And CHOPS! But MJF blocks one again to WRING the arm again! Ospreay writhes, MJF leans on ropes, and then MJF runs in. Ospreay DUMPS MJF out hard!

The fans fire up and Ospreay goes to the apron, only for MJF to YANK him down! MJF puts Ospreay in the ring and says that’s why he’s the smartest wrestler in AEW. But not the wisest as Ospreay DIVING HIDDEN BLADES MJF!! Both men fall to the floor and the fans are thunderous again! Ospreay rises, a ring count starts, and fans count along. We hit 5 of 10, Ospreay puts MJF in at 6. Ospreay goes up the corner, and he BLINDSIDE CHEERIOS! Cover, TWO!! MJF survives again but Ospreay doesn’t get frustrated. Ospreay goes to the apron and climbs up the corner, but MJF again hits ropes! Ospreay lands bad on the corner this time!

MJF climbs up, throws hands, then goes to the very top. SUPER- NO! Ospreay stops the Steiner with one good arm! The fans fire up as he tucks MJF in, for a SUPER STYLES CLASH!! But Ospreay struggles to turn MJF over for the cover! ROPEBREAK!! Ospreay is frustrated now but there’s nothing he can do about that. Ospreay drags MJF up but MJF HOTSHOTS the arm! MJF reels Ospreay in, for an APRON HEATSEEKER!! Ospreay flops to the floor, and MJF looks at the table…! MJF puts Ospreay on the table, hurries back to the corner, and MJF climbs! The fans are going nuts already as MJF SUPER MACHO ELBOWS THROUGH THE TABLE!!!

The fans lose their minds all over again as MJF goes for broke! The ref checks both men, and they’re somehow okay to continue! “This is Awesome!” as we once again go picture in picture.

MJF flounders his way back to ringside and drags himself in. But Champion’s Advantage won’t let him win the title like this! Ospreay is still on the outside as we pass 5 of 10, and he starts to stir around 7. MJF then springs out after Ospreay to get him back in! Seems MJF was just resting, and he shouts about something, probably about how he’s better. MJF stands, paces around, then stomps Ospreay’s legs, then Dynamite goes to break.

Dynamite 250 returns again, and MJF has Ospreay in a Cobra Twist. MJF sneakily grabs the ropes to add on leverage! The ref looks but MJF lets go in time. Ospreay still endures, and MJF digs a knuckle into the ribs. MJF then again sneaks a grab at the ropes! The ref gets closer to catching him but the fans tell on MJF! MJF tells them all to shut up! MJF still grabs for ropes, but the ref sees it this time! MJF says he’s not doing nothing! The ref KICKS that arm! Ospreay then hip tosses free! Both men are down and the fans fire up again! MJF gets up, Ospreay reels him into a package, TWO! Schoolboy, TWO!

A spin and backslide, TWO!! MJF whips, Ospreay swings but MJF gets under! Ospreay leaps, into the POWER BACKBREAKER! Cover, TWO!!! The fans are electric again as both men are down! The fans sing for Ospreay as he crawls to a corner. MJF sits up then rises up to soak up heat. MJF hits the kangaroo stance?! The fans are torn, surely he isn’t serious. But then MJF runs up, KANGAROO- NO! Ospreay catches MJF!

Ospreay CATAPULTS MJF, but MJF lands safe on the corner! Only for Ospreay to tuck him in and CHEEKY NANDOS! MJF is still stuck so Ospreay goes up after him, for a SUPER POISON RANA! MJF lands out?! MJF shows he can do what Ospreay does and the fans lose their minds! LARIAT in the corner, then MJF hoists Ospreay up top. MJF goes up and up and smirks, gives some thrusts, then SUPER STEINERS! Ospreay lands out!! Ospreay shows MJF how it’s really done and MJF is in disbelief! Both men turn around, MJF swings but Ospreay goes Matrix! MJF returns the favor to dodge Ospreay!

Ospreay blocks a kick but MJF pokes him in the eyes! MJF flips everyone off, but Ospreay HOOK KICKS him! MJF rebounds to ROCK Ospreay! Ospreay rebounds to BOOT MJF! MJF rebounds to ROLLING ELBOW! Ospreay rebounds, MJF SWATS the lariat, gets Ospreay up but Ospreay slips outta the bomb! MJF blocks the kick again, KNEES Ospreay and runs, but into the TIGER WALL KICK! ENZIGIRI!

Ospreay underhooks to STORM- NO, MJF slips free to DREAM SMASHER! MJF runs, into a SPANISH FLY!! Cover, TWO?!?!? Even after all that, there’s still something in the gas tanks on both men! Little Rock gives a standing ovation for this AEW Match of the Year contender! MJF crawls to a corner, Ospreay pursues. Ospreay puts MJF up top, ROCKS him, but has to slap some fire into himself. Ospreay goes up top, but MJF fires body shots!

MJF gut wrenches Ospreay, but Ospreay kicks free! Ospreay then slingshots back up, to SUPER OSCUTTER!! And HIDDEN BLADE!!! Cover, TWO?!?!? Ospreay can’t believe it and now he’s mad! Ospreay throws off the elbow pad as Little Rock is erupting! MJF sits up, but DUCKS the Hidden Blade! Ospreay tumbles but MJF is also down, too tired to sit back up. Ospreay crawls his way back over, sits MJF up, but MJF SPITS at him!! Ospreay gets REALLY mad now! MJF panics, Ospreay HEADBUTTS him! Ospreay reels MJF in, the fans say do it, and Ospreay says yes! Underhooks, one minute warning, but Ospreay isn’t sure which Storm Attack to use!

Ospreay hauls MJF up, to STORM…! NO, Ospreay stops short of the driver! They fans boo, they want him to end MJF but Ospreay says he’s not like that anymore. Ospreay drags MJF up , MJF SHOVES Ospreay into the ref!! The ref goes down, we’re under 20 seconds! Ospreay hurries over to MJF, DYNAMITE DIAMOND RING PUNCH!!! Cover, MJF WINS!!!!

Winner: MJF, by pinfall (NEW AEW International Champion)

There was literally two seconds left, but MJF pulls it off!! The Wolf of Wrestling proves he’s still just a lowdown dirty snake, but he’s the snake that stole the gold from the #BillyGOAT. Medics help both guys get icepacks, water and oxygen, and MJF rises like a zombie to celebrate himself. The Scumbag may have survived The Aerial Assassin, but will he be ready to go All In against The Bastard?

 

Backstage interview Mark Briscoe & The Acclaimed.

Arkady Aura is with the Sussex County Chicken, as well as Max Caster & Anthony Bowens, and says they asked for this time to talk with each other. Caster says that’s right, because they know Mr. Briscoe is on Team AEW for Blood & Guts. They also know that Team AEW needs a couple more partners, and the only way Mark gets “The Best Wrestler Alive” on his side is when Caster & Bowens join the team together. Plus, The Acclaimed just beat The Bucks a couple weeks ago, they have their number, this is a no brainer! Bowens says that’s right! And they’re also this close to becoming AEW World Tag Team Champions once again, they want a piece of The Bucks’ asses!

Plus, when you think AEW, you think The Acclaimed, because EVERYONE loves The Acclaimed! So they want in! Mark says that’s right! They had his back a couple weeks ago, so as far as he’s concerned, The Acclaimed is in, baby! But Mark’s not the only man calling the shots on this, if you understand what he’s saying. In steps AEW World Champion, Swerve Strickland. Swerve says listen! They’ve been through their fair share of squabbles, so he knows what Acclaimed is all about. Swerve’s also been in battles with The Briscoes, so he knows Dem Boys are real tough people. There is nobody better to go to war with than those you’ve battled against.

Therefore, “y’all ready to get violent?” The Acclaimed say hell yeah! Hands in, and Mark warns The Elite that Team AEW is coming for them! LET’S GO, BABY!! Bowens & Caster follow Briscoe out, Swerve nods, will this team be ready to rip apart The Elite? Will Swerve be ready for The Rainmaker later on tonight in the main event? Or will Kazuchika Okada rain on Swerve’s House and wash it away?

 

“Big Bill” Morrissey is in the ring.

The Redwood introduces to the “seeds, saplings, roots and most importantly, branches,” the Learning Tree, Chris Jericho! The “For The World” Champion is accompanied by “Bad Apple” Bryan Keith as he makes his way out here, waving to Little Rock. The fans boo but Jericho still smiles. “Hi, guys~! Y’know, Little Rock, you need to take a few lessons from The Learning Tree. This city is such a high-crime, violent city, 1,533 crimes for ever 100,000 people, you can do better than that! But let’s talk about Dynamite 250 for AEW, I was on the very first Dynamite, and I’ve been on almost every single one since.

“And the ones that I missed, the Branches were so angry, cards and letters filed in, so I made a promise, I’m never gonna miss another Dynamite again.” The fans boo but Jericho says he’ll be on every one, even until episode 500! It’s like he’s said: When you listen to The Learning Tree, good things happen. And when you don’t, people get hurt, dammit! This isn’t right! Jericho is begging us all to listen to him! Look to those who haven’t. Shibata’s arm, Hook getting that fireball to his face, that’s horrible. And then Samoa Joe is literally driven through a wall because he wasn’t listening to The Learning Tree!

Jericho is begging us, this has to stop! People are getting hurt! At this point, everyone should realize they need to listen to Jericho. Surely everyone knows the teachings of Jericho are so important. Who would be crazy enough not to listen? Who would be psychotic enough not to use the teachings of Jericho? Who would be maniacal enough to- IS THAT MINORU SUZUKI!? Jericho is very worried seeing the Meanest Man in the World returning here to AEW! Suzuki has a paper in his hands, but what could it be? Suzuki goes to the ring and fans get fired up. Suzuki waits, and he steps in at “KAZE NI NARE~!”

Suzuki stares Jericho down while the fans cheer him on. Suzuki looks at the FTW Championship, then he snatches Jericho’s mic. “Next week…” Suzuki holds up the paper, Keith snatches it, and Keith reads it for Jericho. This is an official order from AEW management. The Redwood AND Bad Apple are banned from ringside for Jericho VS Suzuki, an FTW Championship match! Suzuki then HEADBUTTS Jericho down! Bill goes to help Jericho and Keith backs up. Suzuki grins and waves, “Bye, guys~!” Jericho looks to be fearing for his life now that he knows there is someone crazy enough to ignore his teachings. Will the King of Pancrase cut down The Learning Tree?

 

The Elite speak.

Nicholas asks Matthew and Okada if they heard all that. The Elite heard what The Acclaimed, Mark Briscoe and Swerve Strickland had to say, and it is ridiculous! What pisses them off even more is that The Acclaimed think they’re just gonna become two-time AEW Tag Team Champions. Not on their watch! Matt says what those guys need is a reminder about just who the hecc they are! This is THE Elite, the greatest team in AEW. And after next week, they’ll have all the gold and all the power! Nick points out it won’t be all the gold. Swerve is still AEW World Champion. Well, Matt says after what they do to Swerve, that title might just end up vacated.

Because see, they’re dealing with the most dangerous people in the business. They’re going up against The Young Bucks, the greatest tag team ever. They’re dealing with the Continental Champion, The Rainmaker, Kazuchika Okada. They’re dealing with the unpredictable Scapegoat, the TNT Champion, Jack Perry. And Matt’s favorite part: making his return to The Elite, Hangman Adam Page! And oh, in steps the TBS Champion, Mercedes Mone! The CEO says hi to the EVPs, and she thanks them for banning Britt Baker from even being backstage tonight so that she can’t ruin Dynamite 250 for them.

Matt says let’s just say there’s no drama coming from The DMD to the CEO, via the EVPs. Okada whispers something to Matt and Matt asks if Mone will do the dance for them. Oh, her CEO shuffle? Of course! C E O! C E O! Ok, got to go~! Mone heads out, Okada wipes himself down. He claims it’s just really hot back here. Matt & Nick say okay, sure. But will The CEO still be golden like The Elite? Or will she end up the Native Beast’s next meal?

 

AEW TBS Championship: Mercedes Mone VS Nyla Rose!

Well, as we just heard, there will be no Britt Baker anywhere tonight because that is how bad she got under The CEO’s skin. Mone even made sure this Open Challenge would not allow Britt to answer it, so in steps a different former AEW Women’s World Champion. Will Mone find there are threats all over the AEW roster? Or will she still be making that double champion type bank?

The introductions are made, the teal title is raised, and we see who is truly the Face of TBS!

The bell rings and the two circle. The fans rally and duel, the two tie up, and Mone tries but she can’t push Nyla back at all! Nyla puts Mone in a corner, Mone goes up the ropes, but the ref counts. Nyla lets off but Mone scuffs her. Nyla is annoyed, but she mocks Mone’s dance. Nyla runs up, Mone leaps over, but then Nyla runs up again. Mone gets around, waistlocks, but Nyla THROWS her away! The fans rally, Nyla storms up but Mone drop toeholds her onto ropes! Mone CLUBS and stomps away on Nyla. Mone drags Nyla up to stomp into a corner, but the ref counts. Mone digs her boots in, but lets off at 4.

Mone backs off to then storm back up and drag Nyla up. Mone talks trash, but Nyla reels her in! Nyla suplexes, and she holds Mone up, does a squat or two, but Mone slips free! Mone CLUBS Nyla, runs, but Nyla scoops her! Nyla stops the tilt-o-whirl, and shouts, “Have you lost your mind?!” Nyla suplexes to hang Mone out to dry! Nyla KNEES Mone, goes to the corner and climbs, and the fans fire up for the GUILLOTINE KNEE DROP! Nyla drags Money to the cover, TWO!! Mone survives and Nyla is frustrated, but Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Nyla drags Mone up, ELBOWS her down, then she drags Mone into a backbreaker rack across her knee! Mone endures, even as Nyla pushes her down! Mone fights free with kicks, then fires forearms. Nyla ROCKS Mone right back! Nyla then torture racks Mone to thrash her around! Mone endures, slips down, but Nyla blocks the arm-drag! Nyla whips Mone into the corner, then runs in, only for Mone to move! Nyla POSTS herself, then Mone goes to the apron. Mone BOOTS Nyla into the post! Nyla falls back, Mone soaks up the cheers and jeers, then she sits Nyla down. METEORA! Mone drags Nyla to a cover, TWO!

Mone is upset so she rains down fists! The ref reprimands, Mone lets off to swagger around. Mone stalks Nyla, stomps her around, then bumps her off buckles. Mone stands Nyla up for forearm after forearm, then she climbs up to rain down fists! Mone goes to nine, soaks up the cheers and jeers, but Nyla brings Mone off the corner! Mone RANAS Nyla away, hurries to run, and she METEORAS again! Cover, TWO! Mone is frustrated but Nyla’s a former champion for a reason. Mone drags Nyla up, and clamps on with a COBRA TWIST! Nyla endures, even as Mone puts on the pressure. Mone ELBOWS Nyla in the ribs, but Nyla powers out with a hip toss!

Mone stands, blocks a boot and KNEES Nyla back. Mone runs, slips around, and has a SLEEPER! Dynamite 250 returns to single picture while Nyla starts to fade! The fans rally, Nyla fights up, and she swings Mone around into a facelock! Nyla snap suplexes Money away! The fans fire up while Mone flounders to a corner. Nyla snarls, rises up, and runs in to back body block! And then LARIAT! Mone staggers back up, Nyla runs in at the corner and SPLASHES! Mone sits down, Nyla fires up and Little Rock is with her! CANNONBALL! Nyla drags Mone to a cover, TWO!! Mone survives, showing why she’s been champion all over the world.

Nyla snarls, and she goes up the corner. Mone stands to kick the leg! Nyla falls, Mone goes up and up to VADER BOMB! Nyla sputters, Mone gets moving, BOOT WASH! Mone pushes Nyla, goes up the corner, and she METEORAS again! Cover, TWO!! Nyla survives and Mone can’t believe it! Mone drags Nyla up, turns her, but Nyla’s too big to Gory Especial! Nyla RAMS Mone into the corner, the fans duel, but Nyla puts Mone up top. Nyla then climbs up to have Mone’s arm. But Mone fires elbows on Nyla! Mone adjusts position, and SUPER BULLDOGS! Mone then brings out a glove, all to mock Britt!

Mone puts on her glove, spells out “C! E! O!” RINGS OF SATURN, and then the LOCKJAW!! Nyla BITES Mone’s fingers!! That’s what Mone gets! But then DRIBBLES Nyla’s face off the mat, and puts on the STATEMENT MAKER! Nyla taps, Mone wins!

Winner: Mercedes Mone, by submission (still AEW TBS Champion)

Mone may not be able to do it like The DMD, but she still wins out and holds up both belts. Mone then spots a fan with a sign, “DMD > CEO,” and she snatches that sign! Mone RIPS the sign up, and the fan wearing the Sting mask is upset. That fan pie faces Mone!? Because surprise! It’s BRITT BAKER!! The DMD suck into the show and The CEO is running for her life!! Security surrounds Mone to shield her from Britt! The guards then swarm Britt, and Mone is safe, for now. Will Britt have her Wembley Stadium moment with Mone whether Mone likes it or not?

 

Jack Perry speaks.

The Scapegoat flips a coin, then tells Darby Allin, “You wanted to get my attention? Well, you’ve got it now. All you had to do was ask. Did you really have to go and hurt Brandon Cutler? Maybe what I mean to say is, do you think I give a s*it about Brandon Cutler?” He is standing OVER Brandon! And then THROWS him through a door! Jack SMACKS Brandon off a boiler, then tells Darby to come find Jack tonight. Then Jack will show Darby what real sacrifice looks like. Will The Relentless One get that fight with the TNT Champion after all?

 

Toni Storm is here!

The Leading Lady is back so soon after how brutally Mariah May betrayed her? Wait, no… That’s Mariah May taking her cosplay to a new level. The understudy is now portraying the part of AEW Women’s World Champion as she menacingly makes her way down to the ring. The fans boo the protege for how she did Toni Storm dirty, but Mariah grabs a mic for herself. The fans chant for Toni but Mariah sighs. “Let’s be honest. You all saw it coming. Everybody saw it coming, except Toni Storm.” The fans boo but Mariah says that woman is so desperate for the spotlight, she didn’t realize she was giving it all away.

“The question shouldn’t be ‘why,’ the question should be, ‘Mariah, what took you so long?’ Honestly, I didn’t think it would last this long either. But it was so… easy! And I was having so much fun stringing her along, I just wanted to see how far it would go. But then, I saw Wembley. And I thought, ‘Why take the old horse out back when I can kill it in front of as many people as possible?” The fans boo more but Mariah says she’s been Toni Storm, and now she can be so much more! Fans chant “We Want Toni!” and Mariah smirks. Mariah tells Toni not to worry, she still loves her. In fact, she’s never loved her more than when Toni was on her knees, screaming and crying Mariah’s name. “That was your greatest performance.”

As for Mariah’s greatest performance, that will be at All In! The fans boo more but Mariah says now, AEW is All About Mariah! Mariah then lies back on the mat to revel in it just like Toni would. But will Toni make sure Mariah suffers far worse than what she gave Toni?

 

AEW shares post show footage from Collision.

The Bang Bang Gang returned backstage but they’re asked about being stripped of the Unified World Trios Championships. Juice said hold on, they ain’t been stripped of nothing. Whoever wants these belts will have to pry them out of their cold, dead hands! But then Christopher Daniels and a couple refs appear backstage, and the Fallen Angel knows it isn’t the most popular decision, nor is it fair to the champs, but that’s the rules of AEW. Austin says he isn’t taking these belts! Daniels says it’s either that or they’re suspended and they don’t get a chance to fight for them against The Patriarchy.

Colten says fine, take ’em. Take all nine belts! Daniels gathers them up and Austin tells Christian Cage that they are not scared of a guy with a daddy fetish, some TikTok kid, a stepmom straight outta Brazzers, and a giant lizard! Juice says what will happen is The Collision Cowboys come home, and they come home with their little hardware homies! And if you’re not down with that, they’ve got two words for ya: GUNS UP! Will Rock Hard Robinson, Fully Cocked Colten, and… Austin make sure Captain Charisma and his “sons” never touch the gold? Or can no one stop The Patriarchy from taking over AEW?

Darby Allin is here!! Jack did call him out, so here he comes! Jack looks around, where could he be?

Wait! LOOK UP! Darby drops in from the rafters just like The Icon, Sting! And so now we have 5v5!! The brawl is on again and Little Rock is losing their minds! Security and refs hurry in to stop this, but the security gets thrown aside! Jack is after Darby, Mark helps Darby against him, but then Mark has to fight off Nick! Darby dribbles Jack off the floor! Jack RAMS Darby into railing, Mark returns to help Darby! Security finally separates the factions, which is just fine by The Bucks! But will nothing stop Team AEW from destroying this corrupt Elite once and for all?


My Thoughts:

Now this was an awesome episode of Dynamite. They only advertised three matches, and it turns out that’s all we needed. Ospreay VS MJF was made the opener so they could just go off and give us almost an hour of their best stuff. It kinda makes some PPV matches feel lesser now, but hey, a match of the year candidate is still a match of the year candidate, no matter if it’s TV or PPV. MJF winning out surprised me, but he did cheat so that protects Ospreay. I was hoping for Ospreay VS Pac at All In, but I suppose “The Scumbag VS The Bastard” makes for some fun build. And with how much MJF was taunting Garcia, this has to mean Garcia shows up at All In to go after MJF.

TV Time with Jericho was properly short because we can’t actually drag the show to a screeching halt after how awesome Ospreay VS MJF was. As Jericho started listing qualities like “crazy” and “maniacal,” I just felt Suzuki showing up. Suzuki getting his FTW Championship match with Jericho next week is great, but I’m still thinking Jericho retains. Now, while Keith & Bill are banned from ringside, nothing is stopping Hook from showing up. Hook could go after Jericho after he retains, and that sets up Jericho VS Hook for All In. Which would be interesting because that makes it back to back All In shows for Hook and this FTW Championship.

Good promo from The Bang Bang Gang with Daniels, but like, so filler. Who needed to see them hand over the belts? Or rather, why couldn’t they have figured out to do that during Collision? Very good promo from Mariah May where she completes her transformation into Toni Storm’s replacement. She even phrased it “All About Mariah” to nod how this has been All About Eve the movie, in wrestling form. The fans kept going “What?” just cuz she was taking things slowly, which is rude, but I do feel she could’ve been faster about it. She was definitely going for something with her pacing, but maybe she was also just filling for a little more time. Toni will surely have a response next week or something, though.

Very good promo from Acclaimed with Mark Briscoe and Swerve to establish the Acclaimed joining Team AEW, and very good response promo from The Elite to call them out on it. Though, what a weird detail for Okada to be a Mone simp. He’s married for crying out loud! But that aside, Mone is still tangentially a part of The Elite, and she had a very good match with Nyla tonight. Mone of course found the way to win, but I do appreciate Britt gives us a Sting shoutout by wearing the Sting mask before revealing she was here. Mone running scared was pretty funny, and yeah duh, this match is happening at All In.

In relation, very good promo from Jack Perry, even if poor Brandon had to get beat up again. Jack calling Darby out was good foreshadowing for Darby’s own Sting tribute, and I figured last week that Darby Allin was going to be Team AEW for Blood & Guts. Great main event from Swerve VS Okada that The Bucks of course had to “ruin” to save Okada from a legit loss. At the same time, this keeps either champion from owing the other a title match so close to All In. Great brawl to give us the full 5v5, Blood & Guts is going to be some wild stuff, and it can definitely go either with so many champions involved this time. However, as Mark Briscoe is the only one whose rivalry is NOT in Blood & Guts, he probably takes the loss for Team AEW.

My Score: 9.1/10
