I used to give Lucha a lot of flak for being incredibly athletic but somewhat sloppy. I saw NONE of that tonight, and Wardlow is a a beast amongst men. This was an opener if there ever was one, and you got the feeling they could have done so much more had this been an actual PPV event and not a televised one. Amazing work from everyone. MJF, you’re a gem.

Definitely the best match I’ve seen from Ford, although I haven’t seen much. They took their time to get to the last three minutes, but those last three minutes were solid as Shida focused on the head, while Ford tried to survive. I especially love the numerous knees and the Falcon Arrow times two just to put her away. Solid work from both.

A solid outing with a finish that I actually enjoyed. Hager punching a ref out of the loss makes him look like a loose cannon, and Jericho trying to defend him but struggling to do so only added to it. IF there’s one thing AEW does well, it’s give characters a consistency you could hold onto. Matchwise, it was average.
Total Rating: **1/2

Hager celebrates like he’s won until the announcer says he lost. Hager is pissed. He turns to the ref. The ref admonishes him.


Refs come out to make the save and hold back Hager as Dustin and Anderson check on the comatose Cody.

Backstage, Omega and Page are chillin. Page says The Best Friends do deserve a title shot, but tonight when they are in the ring, the word deserve dries up. Omega says that week after week, they have defeated everyone. The result is always the same. This week will be no different. They will still be champs and bid us all adieu.

We are informed that Cage v Moxley will happen in two week.

Cage gets flames for his entrance and some new music.

Tazz stops the music and wants to talk. The cat is out the bag. Everyone now knows what they found out earlier today. Some may think that Tazz and Cage are pissed. No, they’re easy like Sunday Morning. Taz had a talk with Khan, and he heard that Mox is concerned about the health of everyone. But correct Tazz if he’s wrong. Hasn’t he ben tested twice, and both times it would be negative? And wouldn’t they be tested here at AEW? Because, as you know, WE DON’T RUN A SLOPPY SHOP!

Cage pulls the trigger cuz that’s a shoot.

Tazz says Mox is suffereing from the chicken shits. He is afraid of Cage. July 15, who better than Brian Cage to be AEW World Champ?

We come back to AEW to see Trent’s mom dropping off him and his best friends in a mini-van. Hahaha. She tells them to have fun before leaving. She gives Trent a kiss before leaving and wwishes him good luck.

A great main event, even though the ending was never in question. I will say that Trent’s mom being there did give some hop that they’d take it, but them losing didn’t effect me in the slightest. Page and Omega continue to prove that them as singles wrestlers translate incredibly well as a tag team.
Total Rating: ***1/2

After the match, FTR comes into the ring with some beers. They hand them over to Page and Omega. It appears Kenny is’nt a fan of the beer he was given. He pours the beer out. FTR takes offense. They get in the face of Omega, but out comes The Young Bucks to prevent any issues. Or, at least try.
