This elevator only goes up to ten. He’s not around, he’s always looking at men, but me? I like looking at girls and liveblogging pro wrestling shows for you, folks.

The show opens with the intro video.

Adam Cole vs. Maxwell Jacob Friedman

Friedman with a side headlock, shot off, shoulder block, taunting, Cole with a leapfrog, drop down, MJF with the Fargo Strut and a little hip swivel for the crowd! Off the ropes again, drop down, leapfrog, Max scrambles away from the kick and begs off!

Off into the crowd, MJF takes a swat at a fan’s glasses before returning to ringside to avoid losing by countout and giving Adam a shot at his title. Trapping Cole in the ring skirt, beating him up, clawing at his face, smashing his hand into the steel steps!

Stomping the hand, back inside, working the arm, top wristlock applied! Catching Adam with a deep arm wringer, setting up a pumphandle driver... NOPE! Cole comes back with a fisherman neckbreaker over the knee, off the ropes, Ushigoroshi but Adam’s knee gives out!

Both men to the apron, Max gets him up for a piledriver but Cole slips out! Up to the second, throat thrust cuts Adam off... MJF HITS THE TOMBSTONE PILEDRIVER ON THE APRON AND WE GO TO BREAK!

Back from commercial, Cole is in a bad way and Friedman taunts him, spitting on him and yelling at him! Adam powers up for a forearm, Max accepts and trades with him, off the ropes and MJF drops him with a lariat and both men are down and out! Arm-trap crossface, Cole rolls through to reverse but Max gets Salt of the Earth!

Into the ropes, MJF keeps the hold through the entire count of five! Knee strike sets up the Heatseeker... NOT ENOUGH! Max clears the timekeeper’s table, setting Cole up top, MJF perches on top of the turnbuckles... ELBOW DROP THROUGH THE TIMEKEEPER’S TABLE TO THE FLOOR!

Friedman looking to take the countout... ADAM COLE BEATS THE COUNT! Superkick on the apron sets up an arm-trap German suplex! Max arguing with referee Bryce Remsburg, nearfall and the kickout puts Cole into him and with the referee down, MJF goes and gets the title belt!

A little Eddy Guerrero special, Bryce gets to his feet but falls right back down! Cole considers the title in his hand and lines MJF up to crack him with it! Knee pad down... MAXWELL JACOB FRIEDMAN WILL NOT STAY DOWN! Looking for another knee but Max collapses!

Max hits Cole in the gentleman’s area with Remsburg distracted, gets out the Dynamite Diamond Ring and Bryce catches him with it! Superkick connects as Remsburg takes it away, Panama Sunrise connects, off the ropes... THE BELL RINGS BEFORE THREE?!

Cole sits up and stares in disbelief as commentary explains...

The match goes to a time limit draw, denying Adam Cole a shot at the AEW World Championship.

Post-match, Adam demands five more minutes and of course MJF refuses him, and we go to break.

Back from commercial, we get a hype reel for CM Punk’s return on Saturday at Collision.

Sammy Guevara is interviewed in the ring by Renee Paquette.

Guevara says it’s been a hell of a ride the last couple months, from the high of announcing his wife’s pregnancy live on pay-per-view, to the lowest of lows by failing to become world champion. But the goal has always been the same, and now his wife will be by his side, baby in one arm and world title in the other.

But before that happens, he has to make some tough decisions, and make some changes here in AEW.

Enter Darby Allin.

Darby congratulates him genuinely on the baby and says he knows he got beat and he doesn’t want a title match, he’ll start from the bottom, but if you listen to the people it sounds like they’re starting to like Sammy again. But he has a question— is he gonna stand on his own two feet or live in the shadow of the JAS?

He and Sting view each other as equals, and he tells Sammy he doesn’t have to answer right now, but he thinks he knows the answer.

Enter Chris Jericho.

He tells Allin to mind his own business and confronts Guevara, saying it’s just the two of them and he’s been meaning to ask a question— these months he was chasing MJF for the world title, he never called Chris for help once, his mentor, the guy who brought him into AEW and made him a star.

Sammy says that’s funny because he thought if Chris would have called him he wouldn’t have lost to Adam Cole twice. Jericho says he must be suffering delusions of grandeur and gives him a chance to apologize to him right now, but Sammy isn’t apologizing for shit.

Jericho wants them to have a tag match as Le Sex Gods next week to remind him how it is, and Darby scoffs and says Chris may call himself the Wizard but when he steps in the ring, the magic is gone. Y2J calls him a mutant and says maybe he and Sammy should beat the hell out of him right here, right now.

Allin says he’s not really alone— AND STING IS HERE!

Jericho puts Floyd up under Sting’s jaw but the Icon swats it away with his own baseball bat and runs Chris out of the ring!

Back from commercial, we get a promo from SANADA where he issues an open challenge for the IWGP World Heavyweight Championship for Forbidden Door.

Darby Allin, “Limitless” Keith Lee, Orange Cassidy, Sting vs. Mogul Embassy (Bishop Kaun, Brian Cage, Shane “Swerve” Strickland, & Toa Liona)

Sting and Strickland to start, the Icon on the attack, tag to Allin, Stinger Splashes in quick succession! Cage trips Sting up, Darby ducks a kick from Swerve and we go to break!

Back from commercial, Embassy in control and working Allin over. Stundog Millionaire clears the path and Lee tags in hot! Shoulder blocks for everybody, Cage with a monkey flip! Fireman’s carry dropped into a rolling elbow takes Brian out, Swerve jumps on him, and Keith sets him up top, turned around... QUADRUPLE POWERBOMB!

The match breaks down into “everybody do something cool” territory, Lee back body drops Kaun to the floor and pops Strickland up into a huge slam! Allin dives and takes the Gates out, Sting punching away on Brian, inverted headlock reversed, Orange Punch reverses him back...

Darby Allin, Keith Lee, Orange Cassidy, & Sting win by pinfall with a Scorpion Death Drop from Sting on Brian Cage.

Renee Paquette interviews the Ass Boys.

They have no idea about any alliance with “Switchblade” Jay White and they talk up how they’re the best brother tag team in AEW and they challenge the Hardy Boyz to a match next week.

Jake Hager vs. Wardlow (c) (AEW TNT Championship)

Hager rushes Wardlow during his entrance, we get a bell and he keeps throwing punches in the corner. Whip across, Mr. Mayhem with lariats and a German suplex! Action to the floor, champion still in control and we go to break!

Back from commercial, Wardlow with a spinebuster, 2.0 come down the ramp, Arn Anderson makes like he’s pulling his gun and Brock Anderson arrives to even the odds! High-angle spinning spinebuster... WARDLOW KICKS OUT AT ONE! Champion lariats him to the floor, slingshot into a plancha!

Throwing Jake back inside, Wardlow goes up top, senton atomico and the straps are down! Powerbomb number one...

Wardlow wins by pinfall with the Powerbomb Symphony, retaining the AEW TNT Championship.

Post-match, Christian Cage cuts a promo from the tron asking what Wardlow will do when his daddy isn’t around to help, and the camera pans down to show Arn Anderson bleeding profusely from the head, sending Wardlow running to the back to save him!

Hiroshi Tanahashi sends a video challenging Maxwell Jacob Friedman to a title match at Forbidden Door!

Renee Paquette is in the trainer’s room to ask MJF about the match.

He’s confused and says “no” to the match and it wouldn’t be the first time he no-showed a match so sorry, fart noise, no can do bud.

And on that note, we go to break.

Back from commercial, Renee Paquette interviews Orange Cassidy.

He says right about now somebody will walk in and challenge him for the International Championship—

Zack Sabre, Jr. rolls up and says he’d like to be double champion.

Daniel Garcia rolls up asking after Katsuyori Shibata, and Orange has the bright idea to book a tag match, him and Shibata against ZSJ and Garcia.

Skye Blue vs. Toni Storm (c) (AEW Women’s World Championship)

Storm charging in, Blue turns her around and hammers her with forearms! Putting boots to the champion, clubbing blows, forearms in the corner! Pressing the attack, Toni falls to the floor, Skye’s mom makes fun of her and gets the green spray!

Blue dives on both Outcasts and takes them out and we go to break.

Back from commercial, Skye still running hot, snapmare, kick blocked so she ducks down and hits an enzuigiri! Toni cuts her off and sends her to the floor, back inside, Blue outsmarts them on the paint, Code Blue but Ruby Soho has referee Paul Turner distracted!

She lays Soho out with a superkick, Toni with a Hot Shot and Storm Zero... SKYE BLUE KICKS OUT OF STORM ZERO?! Cloverleaf in deep...

Toni Storm wins by submission with a cloverleaf, retaining the AEW Women’s World Championship.

Post-match, the Outcasts smother Skye and beat her down until Willow Nightingale makes the save!

Renee Paquette interviews JungleHOOK backstage.

Jungle Boy says they’re amped up and he’s feeling a little naked without gold of his own and he’s accepting SANADA’s open challenge for the IWGP World Heavyweight Championship! Perry cuts HOOK off and says he’s not just his tag partner but his best friend, and it’d mean the world if he had his back at Forbidden Door, and HOOK fist bumps him in the affirmative.

“American Dragon” Bryan Danielson makes his entrance to join the commentary booth for our main event.

We get a hype reel for Forbidden Door.

Bullet Club Gold and FTR cut promos to hype up the main event for this week’s episode of Collision.

Commentary hypes up Collision.

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

Blackpool Combat Club (Claudio Castagnoli, Jon Moxley, & Wheeler YUTA) vs. Hung Bucks (“Hangman” Adam Page, Matt Jackson, & Nick Jackson)

The Elite hot out the gates, clearing the ring, Nick with a corkscrew tope con giro on Moxley and Castagnoli! YUTA up hung off the apron, shooting star press to the floor from Page! Moxley back inside, Matt cuts him off and hammers him with punches and the match finally settles down!

Sleeper hold, Nick off the top with a crossbody, clearing Claudio off the apron, springboard X-Factor, moonsault off the apron but Castagnoli hosses him over into Swiss Death! Matt Jackson diving crossbody to the floor! Back inside, Mox working him over and we go to break!

Back from commercial, fountain of dives from the Elite, rolling northern lights from Matt on YUTA and then a double finale hits Jon as well! Moxley tags in, puts Hangman into the steel steps, Doomsday Device on Matt... NOT ENOUGH! Overhead elbows, bodyscissors sleeper hold, Claudio cuts Page off with overhead elbows but Nick comes off the top with a senton atomico to break up the submission!

Castagnoli tags in, blocking a superkick, Nodowa Otoshi connects, YUTA with the tag, Rocket Launcher.. THE KNEES ARE UP! Superkick Parties all around! Tag to Hangman, pop-up powerbomb sets him up, BTE Trigger, slingshot...

Hung Bucks win by pinfall with Buckshot from “Hangman” Adam Page on Wheeler YUTA.

Ospreay stands tall while Bryan Danielson applauds from commentary.
