Here is your Winner:Undisputed kingdom

 


Post match the Undisputed Kingdom put Romero through some chairs before Trent and Orange can make the save.This was an excellent way of continuing to build the feud between Strong and Cassidy and it worked really well. Don’t be surprised if Strong takes the title from Orange.

 


 

MATCH 2: YOUNG BUCKS VS MONDO ROX & ROBBIE LIT

 

The bucks have new music and a new entrance videos. Crowd are already booing them.

Matthew stomps the hell out of Robbie before landing a  lariat. Robbie is slingshotted into Nick, who provides a kick to the head. Nick tosses Robbie into Mondo for the tag. Matt with the blind tag as he clotheslines Mondo before getting kicked low by Nick while Matt distracts the ref. The bucks hit the EVP trigger to end this one.

 

Here is your Winner:Young Bucks


 

Nick grabs a microphone to demand that the EVPs be given respect! It’s demanded their birth names call them. Matthew thanks Darby Allin and Sting for becoming the new AEW Tag Champions. The crowd is chanting boring as Matthew sarcastically wishes Sting and Darby well. Turns out they got banged up in their match on Wednesday. Matt promises to have competitive matches to get ranked and no.1 contender status. Young Bucks are coming for the tag team titles.

 

A squash match followed by an awfully awkward promo. Not sure if this is heel heat or just everyone has lost interest in the young bucks.

 

 

 

MATCH 3: CMLL’S MISTICO VS MATT SYDAL

 

It’s an excellent series of reversals to open up this fast contest. Sydal with a spinning leg scissors takedown. Mistico comes back with one of his own. Tope suicida follows as it connects on Sydal. Sydal with a bow & arrow lock on Mistico. It’s followed by a back moonsault pin attempt as Mistico kicks out. Mistico connects with a crossbody from the ropes for a near fall. Sydal, with the airway, crashes as Mistico kicks out of the pinfall attempt. Both men are slugging it out before Sydal hits Mistico in the jaw with a kick. Mistico with a scoop slam as he takes to the top. No one is home, as Mistico comes right back with a power slam. Sydal tries climbing to the top as Mistico climbs as well. Misitco hits a Spanish fly for the win.


 

Here is your Winner:Mistico


Sydal did exactly what he needed to here. Great showing by both guys. Sydal still has so much to offer. Shame he loses every week.


 

MATCH 4: KRIS STATLANDER & WILLOW NIGHTINGALE VS SARAYA & RUBY SOHO

 

Saraya and Statlander exchange lockups as Kris lands a dropkick. Statlander follows it up with a backdrop as Soho is tagged. Willow is tagged as she hits a Russian leg sweep on Ruby.

Willow tags in as Saraya tries to tag Ruby, but Ruby leaps off the apron. Harley tries to get in her face and is laid out. Saraya screams as Willow hits a powerbomb and this one is all over.

 


Here is your Winner:Willow & Statlander


Post-match Skye Blue appears as the lights go out and then Julia Hart is standing with Skye Blue as the lights come back on.


Looks like this is the end of Ruby and Saraya which I cant say I’m too sad about. It got stale quick and it continued for way too long. Be interesting to see where Saraya goes from here. Former champion and has done absolutely nothing since she won and then lost her title. Time away and a repackage could be needed.


A fun show this week on Rampage. Join me tomorrow for Collision guys.
