Taking a look, your past is the weight that takes hold of your brain same as before. The shock ripping through, it all hits the floor. You fear it, but me, I’m just here to liveblog this here pro wrestling show for you, folks.

The show opens with the intro video.

Maxwell Jacob Friedman gets a proper introduction as the Bar Mitzvah Man, decked out in gold houndstooth and with four pretty ladies in black cocktail dresses accompanying him to the ring.

He gets on the mic as blue and white streamers rain down on the ring.

He mocks the crowd for thinking Bret Hart was entertaining and claims Shawn Michaels was better, and says we’re here to celebrate the most important day in recorded history, his birthday. And in his religion, the only one that matters, Judaism, under the eyes of his lord hashem, when a boy turns 13 he gets bar mitzvah’d.

His was great, he lost his V-Card, but after he tapped Bryan Danielson out to become the undisputed best professional wrestler in the world, he’s no longer merely a man, now he’s Iron Man!

Hava Negila plays and a bunch of dudes come to the ring with a chair to lift Max up and dance appropriately.

Enter “Jungle Boy” Jack Perry.

Before he can get on the mic—

Enter Sammy Guevara.

And before HE can get on the mic—

Enter Darby Allin.

MJF has a meltdown and tells the three of them they’re ruining his re-Bar Mitzvah and he asks what they want. All three demand a title match at the same time!

Jungle Boy tells him to shut up and says the last time they fought one-on-one was at Double or Nothing 2020 and they went back and forth for almost 20 minutes in the Florida heat until Max cheated, like always, and he won. After that their lives went in different directions, with MJF getting every opportunity in the book, while Jungle Boy was stuck on Dark for the rest of the year.

Friedman’s never been on Dark, he’s never been on Elevation, and he’s never even been on Rampage, and there’s an entire locker room full of men and women who bust ass for sixty seconds on the show while Max gets twenty minutes to do the same hokey bullshit he’s done for the past four years.

This entire place revolves around MJF, and the first step in changing that is taking the world title from him. Friedman says the company does revolve around him, because unlike them, he’s a star. Sammy tells him to shut up before he re-circumcises him, and tells him he talks too much.

He talked his way in the door, lied and cheated, while Sammy had to grind on the indies for ten years, working at Whataburger and Subway, and when he finally got here he was told he was just going to be the Inner Circle’s job boy, but now he’s a champion three-times over.

He’s never had the machine pushing him and he didn’t need it, he got him here, and he’ll get him to the world title whether anybody likes it or not.

MJF tells him he’s thankful he took time out of his busy schedule of getting into locker room brawls with everyone and—

Darby Allin takes over.

He says in 2013 he turned in a movie in film school and his teacher told him he had to change everything about it, so he dropped out of school instead, and that was a blessing in disguise because it gave him the balls to be a pro wrestler. It was his first day at the Buddy Wayne Academy and he told himself he was either gonna make it as Darby Allin or fail as Darby Allin, but he wouldn’t change a thing.

He had a meeting with Tony Khan and said there will never be a bidding war because AEW gives him something no amount of money can buy him, which is the opportunity to just let him be him, and his biggest problem with this company is grown-ass wrestlers whining on Twitter about being unhappy with their deals, including MJF, our world champion, and his Bidding War of 2024 crap!

And that’s exactly why he should be champ and if he doesn’t get a shot he’ll beat his face in with his skateboard and give him a headlock takeover.

Max is apoplectic and says he’s heard enough and takes his hat off and Darby points out he looks like shit from the black eye. Friedman tries to recover with quips but one about Sammy’s serial monogamy backfires when Guevara points out his fiancee left him.

MJF says each of them had mentors— Christian, Jericho, and Sting, but he’s never been in daddy daycare and he’s not afraid to admit that they’re the pillars and they’re the future, but he’s the only one that can keep this place up. They don’t so much as deserve to sniff the world title, they’re gonna leave his party, and then he’s gonna eat his cake, because he deserves it.

He slaps Jack on his way out, a brawl breaks out, and MJF gets knocked off the apron and into his own cake!

We get footage of Chris Jericho getting the street he grew up on named after him as well as being awarded with a Queen Elizabeth II jubilee medal.

Blackpool Combat Club make their entrance and we go to break.

“Hangman” Adam Page & Dark Order (Evil Uno & Stu Grayson) vs. Blackpool Combat Club (Claudio Castagnoli, Jon Moxley, & Wheeler YUTA)

Uno blasts YUTA with a big boot to start! Trading punches in the corner, Wheeler busts ass to get Evil in the corner and quick tags follow! YUTA goes for a cheap shot on Page and that gives Uno the chance to tag Grayson in! Stu pinballing around, Meteora takes Castagnoli out but Moxley rushes in for forearms!

Grayson catches him with a Rock Bottom, Claudio with a boot, tornado DDT from Stu, springboard... CORKSCREW SPRINGBOARD SENTON ATOMICO FOR TWO! Low bridge sends Grayson to the floor, Castagnoli ragdolls him between the barricade and the apron before BCC hits a triple piledriver on him on the floor to send us to break!

Back from commercial, Mox with an Achilles lock on Grayson as the heat segment continues. Gotch Piledriver... SO CLOSE! Stu gets a hard running knee, Jon is rocked and doesn’t know what corner to crawl for, tags made and Hangman runs YUTA over as he cleans house!

Big fallaway slam for Wheeler, plancha for Claudio, off the ropes, western lariat knocks YUTA on his ass! Powerbomb floated over, Wheeler with forearms, off the ropes, duck a lariat, pop-up powerbomb and a blind tag from Uno! Evil off the top with a senton atomico but the match immediately breaks down into “everybody do something cool” territory!

The dust clears, Hangman and Moxley trading forearms, big lariat wipes Jon out, but YUTA clocks him with the ring bell to keep him from hitting Buckshot! Dark Order goes and checks on Adam! Uno still legal, the match breaks down into a two-on-three brawl and a cheap shot leaves Evil clutching his knee!

Back from commercial, we get a recap of MJF’s re-Bar Mitzvah.

Jade Cargill (c) vs. Nicole Matthews (AEW TBS Championship Open Challenge)

Cargill piefaces Matthews and Nicole fires hard shots back! Whip across, pump kick staggers her, chickenwings...

Jade Cargill wins by pinfall with Jaded.

Post-match, Renee Paquette interviews Jade and asks her what kind of challengers she’s looking for next, and Jade responds by backing her into the corner and pointing out that she’s from Canada. Cargill grandstands on the mic some more and—

Taya Valkyrie is here!

She and Jade square up, Leila Grey gets involved but decides better of it. Jade leaves, Leila tries to attack and Taya hits her own Jaded on Grey!

Backstage, “Absolute” Ricky Starks is interviewed.

He says he’s glad Juice Robinson is jealous and he deserves the attention. Juice is part of Bullet Club, that was great in 2015 but maybe he should stand on his own two feet now. He should probably learn better about getting involved in groups but here he is doing it again, and he tells Juice to bring it, any time, any place.

And so we go to break.

Back from commercial, we get a recap of “Powerhouse” Will Hobbs winning the TNT Championship last week.

We get a TMZ-style vignette for QTV where QT Marshall holds court and we see footage of Wardlow’s car being broken into by Aaron Solo.

They mock Wardlow at length and QT reveals that they have his passport so he won’t be coming to Canada and Hobbs welcomes him to Will’s world.

Jeff Jarrett vs. Orange Cassidy (c) (AEW International Championship)

Off the ropes, Jarrett with a nice leisurely arm drag and a little Fargo Strut for y’all. Another arm drag, another strut and then he takes a moment to lay in the turnbuckles and taunt the champion! Cassidy puts him into the ropes, hands in his pockets, dropkick caught, spinning toehold blocked, leapfrog and a bodyslam and Orange’s knee goes out!

Mocking the little kicks with his hands down his trunks, Jeff sends Cassidy to the floor and we go to break!

Back from commercial, Cassidy is writhing on the floor clutching his knee! Back inside, Jarett keeps kicking at the leg and calls for the figure four! Spinning toehold, he changes grips and decides to step through and do a Sharpshooter instead!

Back from commercial we get a music video for the Acclaimed.

The Outcasts make their entrance and get on the mic.

Ruby Soho wants to tell us a story.

Once upon a time the grass was greener here at AEW, until a couple of dogs, bitches, came along and pissed all over the grass. Saraya says we show bitches that aren’t housebroken that AEW is their house, and we should all be kissing the ground they walk on because without them there’s no division.

Toni Storm says she wore the interim title with a smile on her face but no one appreciated her, and meanwhile our current champion cheated to beat her and we all loved it. They’re having too much fun going through each entitled rookie one-after-one, from Willow Nightingale to Riho to Dr. Britt Baker, DMD to Jamie Hayter.

Team DMD run in, quickly get overwhelmed by That Damn Numbers Game, No Future for one of them, Storm Zero for the other, and then Riho, Skye Blue, and Willow Nightingale run in and make the save!

And so we go to break.

Back from commercial, 2.0 cut a promo about the Acclaimed’s music video, which they loved and found entertaining and it got Daddy Magic’s nipples hard, but they’re upset that they’ve turned down the offer to join the Jericho Appreciation Society.

Rey Fenix cuts a promo about how he fought and scraped and wrestled for free to get to where he is today, and he answers Will Hobbs’ open challenge for the TNT Championship.

Commentary hypes up our next week of shows.

House of Black (Brody King, Buddy Matthews, & Malakai Black) (c) vs. Jericho Appreciation Society (Chris Jericho, “Red Death” Daniel Garcia, & Sammy Guevara) vs. the Elite (Kenny Omega, Matt Jackson, & Nick Jackson) (AEW World Trios Championship)

One for Daniel too, senton on Guevara, House of Black throw Sammy in the corner because they want Jericho! Three-on-one, suplex him up for Dante’s Inferno... KENNY OMEGA BREAKS IT UP!

Sammy with a shooting star to the floor, bat shot, Jericho with a cover on Brody... NOT ENOUGH! He’s ready for Judas Effect, Black Mass from Black and a tag to Matthews! Chaining kicks, Dante’s Inferno... IT’S OVER!
