I reign with my left hand, I rule with my right, I’m lord of all darkness, I’m queen of the night… I’ve got the power to liveblog this here pro wrestling show for you, folks.
“Jungle Boy” Jack Perry vs. Wardlow (AEW World Championship #1 Contender’s Tournament)
Waistlock, standing switch, Wardlow takes him down but Perry fires off a big slap in return! Duck a lariat, forearms to the face, jumping into more punches, Mr. Mayhem catches him, he slips out and hammers him but Wardlow stays on his feet! Slide under, dropkick the knee, dropkick the face, he’s got Mr. Mayhem on the run!
Charging in, back body drop puts Jungle Boy on the apron and he lands a kick before low-bridging Wardlow to the floor! Plancha, caught, fireman’s carry, Jack slips out, superkick from the apron! Diving, Frankensteiner attempt, Wardlow catches him… POWERBOMB INTO THE RINGPOST! Back inside, Mr. Mayhem throwing Jungle Boy around, huge toss suplex!
Boots up from the corner, Wardlow cuts him off with a Doctor Bomb… NOPE! Drawing him up, Frankensteiner counter blocked, Perry lands on his feet but Mr. Mayhem runs him over with a lariat for two! Hoisting Jack up, setting him up top, goozle, thumbs up but Perry fights out of it! Big knee strike, sidestep the charge, back elbow, front elbow, boots up!
Up top, missile dropkick to the back sends Wardlow sprawling out of the ring! Another dropkick cuts him off, off the ropes, suicide dive puts him into the barricade! Back inside, inside out springboard tornado DDT gets Jungle Boy a two count! Up top, jockeying for position, Jack counters with the avalanche Frankensteiner!
Lungblower out of the corner, Perry up top, diving double knees… SO CLOSE! To the apron, Wardlow catches him… F-10 BACK INSIDE! Slow and steady, he comes back inside, fireman’s carry him again…
Wardlow wins by pinfall with the F-10.
Commentary hypes up the rest of tonight’s show for us.
We get a replay of some post-show commments from Eddie Kingston from last week, wherein he berated an unconscious Jon Moxley for selling out, for telling him the inmates were gonna run the asylum and then leaving him behind with only pro wrestling to screw him over and over.
This segues to the news that Moxley vs. Kingston in an “I Quit” Match for the world title has been booked for Full Gear next month.
And so we go to break.
Back from commercial, we get a Jon Moxley promo.
He talks about how much he loves Eddie Kingston and wants the best for him in the pro wrestling business, but he thought he would never change and he’s changed. Mox won’t apologize for his success, and he was proud to share the ring with him in September but he’s ashamed of him now and he’s going to end this at Full Gear.
He’s going to beat and torture Eddie until he either gets his friend back or ends him.
Kenny Omega vs. Sonny Kiss (AEW World Championship #1 Contender’s Tournament)
Kenny Omega gets a ridiculously big entrance with Justin Roberts reading off every last accolade he’s ever earned and dancing girls, it’s wacky.
Handshake, Omega with a V-Trigger, electric chair…
Kenny Omega wins by pinfall with One-Winged Angel.
Backstage, Orange Cassidy is interviewed by Tony Schiavone.
He says sometimes matches go your way and sometimes they don’t, and is generally uninterested, as is his wont.
Cody Rhodes is interviewed as he shows up to the arena.
He says he doesn’t think Orange can beat him next week, and says he’s bulking up to be able to compete better with heavyweights like Jake Hager, Lance Archer, and Mr. Brodie Lee.
And so we go to break.
