With its killing graces and secret places that no boy can fill. With her hands on her hips, oh and that smile on her lips because she knows it’s killing me, but first I have to blog this wrestling show live here for you folks.
The show opens with the intro video.
Jim Ross makes his TV debut as he returns to the commentary booth after beating cancer.

Quen with a vicious DDT to slow the tide, Dax enters, the big gourdbuster gets two! The Suplex elevator puts Fenix in the corner, he knocks Harwood down with a big chop and chases him with a moonsault that takes out FTR!

And so we are going to break.
2.0 (Jeff Parker & Matt Lee) & Daniel Garcia vs. Eddie Kingston & Proud-N-Powerful (Ortiz & Santana)
Kingston distracted with Garcia, Lee catches him off guard but Eddie is able to ignore him and chases Daniel out of the ring! Heels swarm, referee Rick Knox struggles to restore order but ends up getting there! Kingston is relentless and ends up taking a legal Parker for a step in Ortiz!
Up and down, duck below, arm drag, Jeff with a legpick, kick in the stomach, front to back, drop down pulls Parker’s legs out from under him and the blanket in gets two!

2.0 & Daniel Garcia win by pinfall with a schoolboy and a handful of Matt Lee tights on Santana.
After the game, they stretch Santana with the bell— AND CHRIS JERICHO SAVES THE SAVINGS! He’s got the baseball bat and he’s cleaning the house!
Jericho and Kingston clash and nibble restlessly. They are about to throw themselves and Ortiz gets between them!
Maxwell Jacob Friedman gets promoted and he says another wrestling company might be able to handle him right, but that’s a question for the 2024 auction war. “Smart” Mark Sterling shows up to remind Wardlow that the terms of his contract state that all titles he could win are the property of MJF.
And so we are going to break.
Back from advertising, Christian Cage and Jurassic Express face the Lucha brothers.
Cage challenges them to defend the tag titles next week and Penta accuses him of not being a good tag partner and tells Jungle Boy to let go of the past. Fenix takes up the challenge!
Colin Delaney vs. Wardlow
Wardlow with a big lariat, a powerbomb, a second, Delaney trying to clear his head but Mr. Mayhem just hits a third and a fourth …
Wardlow wins by pinfall with the Powerbomb Symphony.
The Superkliq and the reDRagon are behind the scenes.
Adam Cole says they’re going to become the biggest faction in history, and Matt Jackson is skeptical. Kyle O’Reilly asks for a minute to talk to Cole, the Bucks say whatever he can say to him, he can tell them, but he insists and Adam tells them to leave.
Kyle asks Bobby Fish to go too, and says things have gone wrong between them, and tonight he knows Bobby is backing him up, and he’s going to have to find out if Cole is doing it too.
Dan Lambert is in the ring with Men of the Year.
He complains about how Cody Rhodes sucks and how he turned Arn Anderson from rider to whore, which is the perfect chain to talk about Brandi Rhodes, who is the first Brandi he knows not to be a strip- teaser.
But he knows Cody has been through a lot to try and be successful in pro wrestling, and AEW fans might be dumb, but even idiots don’t like the taste of the shit sandwich they are. shove them down their throats.
Enter Brandi Rhodes.
She calls Lambert Paul Heyman, a bargain basement, to whom he says he prefers Jim Cornette, but the sound of her voice makes her wish he was back with his balls clipped to his legs. She asks him when the last time he was beaten by a woman and didn’t have to pay for it, because she’s going to give him a big ass tonight for free.
Dan claims he’s going to beat her, and she says he might be a black belt but she’s a black bitch, and she takes off her heels to fight! Dustin Rhodes rushes in to perform the save and “All Ego” Ethan Page blows him up as he and his friends leave.
The comments amplify the rest of tonight’s show and we’re off for the break.
Returning from the publicity, we get a video package for Danielson / Page II.
Jade Cargill vs. Thunder Rosa (AEW TBS Championship Tournament Semifinals)
Rosa with a knee dropkick out of the doors, goes to dive but “Smart” Mark Sterling gets in the way and she drops him with a cannonball from the apron! Cargill from behind with forearms, putting her in the barricade, knees up, Thunder with a crossbody out of the apron but Jade grabs her and hits a backbreaker!
Rosa recovers, kicks, Cargill catches her and puts her hard in the post! Posing on the apron, Tonnerre pulls away and puts her to the post and we are going to break.
Returning from the publicity, Rosa hits her in the corner, a dropkick from the basement to the inside of the thigh, another, kicks in the legs, a folding press for two!
