It is Wednesday, my dudes…and even though there isn’t a lick of snow outside right now (here at Kahrs HQ or in Arlington), I can confirm that Winter is Coming!

After the opening we are greeted by the arrival of Samoa Joe to the ring, introducing himself thusly before getting into what happened last week. He says he’s come here tonight looking for answers, reminding us that he made a promise to MJF he would “keep him whole” ahead of Worlds End and their AEW World Championship match. Joe was made a liar by a Devil, and says he’s going to explain what happened.

He observed the scene last week, he noticed a certain brand of beer that a certain Hangman enjoys. Then, he could sense the smell of Stetson and disappointment, but despite looking all around, he couldn’t find a certain Hangman around.

This draws out Hangman Page who heads to the ring, staring Joe down the whole time as he gets a microphone. Page asks if there’s something Joe wants to say, why not say it like the man Page thought Joe was? Hangman doesn’t care about any of these games, least of all the Clue whodunit…but Joe asks how Page knows he isn’t out here as an executioner?

The two start to trade barbs until Roderick Strong and The Kingdom interrupt. Strong looks at all the times the Devil’s masked men showed up, pointing out that Max has not been harmed up until last week…and even then, MJF was only seen laying there. Strong implies it’s “obviously” Max behind all this, as Page interjects…which leads to the two men going at each other! Joe leaves the ring and in a moment, the bell rings to get this match underway!

Hangman Adam Page vs. Roderick Strong
The neck brace immediately gets taken off as both men lay into each other with chops and other strikes, until Page gets the upper hand…but not for very long as Strong turns it around on him, eventually getting a nearfall! Strong goes right back on the attack now, before hitting the ropes…where Page catches him with a big boot, sending Strong to the canvas!

Hangman gets a nearfall from this, but Strong takes Page down to turn things around in his favor once again…but Page catches him, sending him to the outside before hitting a big dive through the ropes! Page heads back to the turnbuckle, but is intercepted by Raven as Bennett distracts the ref before Strong takes the former AEW World Champion down! Strong follows up with a backbreaker onto the turnbuckle as we go to picture-in-picture!

Picture-in-Picture: Strong stays in control throughout, taking Hangman down repeatedly despite Page’s efforts to fight back, and scores a nearfall in the process as we come back!

Strong keeps the Hangman down with a top wrist lock until Page starts fighting back to his feet, leading to an exchange of strikes between both men…until they take each other down hard with a double forearm strike! Strong makes it back to his feet as Hangman is seen struggling, but manages to even in spite of Strong’s continued attacks before sending Roderick to the corner for some hard stomps!

Hangman fights back again, however, taking Strong down with a Death Valley Driver for a nearfall. Page watches Strong get back to his feet from the corner, hitting a big boot on Roderick before mounting up and taking a bite out of his head! Hangman sets Strong up on the turnbuckle, but Strong fights out of a superplex attempt…only to fall to a sitout powerbomb that gives Hangman a nearfall!

Page brings up Strong for a Dead Eye, but Roderick fights out of it before dropping Hangman down hard for the cover…BUT PAGE KICKS OUT!

Strong with an elbow strike and a suplex followed by a Tiger Driver, but Page kicks out again…only for Roderick to set him up for the Stronghold! Page scrambles to the ropes, grabbing one to break the hold! Page stops another attack from Strong, but is forced to deal with The Kingdom intervening as he eventually hits a moonsault to the outside to take them out of the equation…but Strong intercepts him on a Buckshot attempt! But Page rolls Strong up instead…ONLY FOR STRONG TO KICK OUT!

But it’s all for naught, as Page sets him up for the Dead Eye to get the pin and the win!

Winner via pinfall: Hangman Adam Page

We get a reminder of the Continental Classic standings as we have FOUR tournament matches later tonight!

The two lock up with King taking Andrade to the ropes, but El Idolo holds his own as he locks in a side headlock on the bigger man. Brody looks to fight out of it but is taken down by El Idolo, who goes right back to the headlock after King manages to get out of it…but this time, Brody takes him down to the canvas!

Both men back to their feet as neither gives way to a shoulder tackle, but King sends El Idolo back down before taking him to the corner…only for Andrade to lay in some chops, before receiving some from Brody in return!

Brody hits the ropes, but is taken out by Andrade with a back elbow!

El Idolo heads up top, but is intercepted by Brody who keeps him off the turnbuckle…but Andrade fights back! Both men are on the turnbuckle now as Brody looks for the superplex…but El Idolo denies him this, hanging him up on the top turnbuckle as King drops to the canvas. Andrade slides back into the ring, catching him with a hammerlock DDT to get the pin and the win and earn 3 more points in the tournament!

Winner via pinfall: Andrade El Idolo (9)

We go backstage now, where Renee is standing by with some of Kevin, Marshall, and Ross Von Erich family…before they are interrupted by the Best Friends of Orange Cassidy, Trent Beretta, and Danhausen. Cassidy invites the Marshall and Ross to tag with him on Rampage…an invitation that is accepted!

Back at ringside, Kenny Omega is welcomed to the ring, ready to speak on behalf of the Golden Jets as we go to commercial.

-Commercial Break-

Back from break, Omega is joined by his tag partner as Chris Jericho heads to the ring next, with the crowd singing “Judas” as we get a look at the situation between the Golden Jets and the current AEW World Tag Team Champions. Omega and Jericho thank the crowd for their appreciation before getting into the matter of Big Bill and Ricky Starks, with Jericho calling the champs out to the ring.

The champs oblige this request as they head to the stage, with Ricky asking if the crowd missed him. Ricky finds the situation funny, because he has no problem with Omega…but Jericho is a different situation. He asks Kenny if he can really trust a guy like Jericho, considering the likes of the Inner Circle and the Jericho Appreciation Society.

Omega has a laugh at this, saying Jericho knows Kenny doesn’t trust him…before bringing up the track record of Ricky Starks and Big Bill. Kenny follows up by laying out the challenge for Worlds End to prove how good the Golden Jets are when they win the tag titles. Starks accepts the challenge before bringing up he’s beaten Jericho before. The champs will prove they’re superior and they don’t even have a team name.

Jericho offers to give the champs a new name, with some of the suggestions being censored by TBS before settling on “Big Billy Starks” to little reaction. This starts to devolve as Jericho tries to start a chant for it, before Starks taunts the Ocho for his outfit leading to Jericho compares Ricky Starks to Enzo Amore. Omega says at least Enzo would try to hype up Big Bill instead of taking the spotlight for himself, which riles up Starks as the segment wraps with Omega wishing us all a goodnight and goodbye.


Commentary talks about recent developments involving Toni Storm before the AEW Women’s World Champion makes her way to the commentary table for our next match. Ruby Soho makes her way to the ring first, followed by Riho before things get underway!

Ruby Soho vs. Riho
It’s a fairly even match early on with Soho starting to get the upper hand until Riho catches her with a double stomp, forcing Ruby to leave the ring for a breather as Riho sets up on the top turnbuckle…only for Soho to intercept, until Riho takes Ruby down to the canvas as we go to picture-in-picture!

Picture-in-Picture: Riho stays on the attack until an STO gives Soho the advantage, allowing her to inflict more damage with some stomps before getting a nearfall. Ruby stays firmly in control here, keeping the inaugural AEW Women’s World Champion at bay as we come back from break!

Eventually, the masked men lift Page up, sending him into the car’s windshield to leave the Hangman in a world of hurt as the show comes to a close.
