Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (The Liacouras Center)
Results by: Chris Gerics of Wrestleview.com
It’s Wednesday Night, you know what that means! The commentators welcome us to the Liacouras Center as we kick off with The Pinnacle of Sports Entertainers!
JUDAS HITS! The crowd has a mixed reaction as the entire JAS come out in matching velour purple suits and Jericho is going by “The Ocho” on his ROH nameplate. There’s balloons and pizza set up as it looks like the JAS pulled out all the stops for Jericho! The crowd is absolutely loving it now. Angelo Parker starts off saying “Appreciate Us” “We know Philly is the City of Losers! The JAS is here to give you the gift of celebrating an actual championship win as we celebrate The OCHO!” Daddy Magic now with a special guest LUIGI PRIMO! “He’s a gotta the pizza from a New York City!” No pizza for anybody! screams Daddy Magic. Now Anna JAS has the mic but the crowd drowns her out with “We Want Pizza!” She’s absolutely furious, but says we do get to see the greatest ROH champ of all time referring to Jericho; now Jericho has the mic and asks if they want pizza but says they can’t have any but “what they can have is the most important ROH champion in history, Chris Jericho, the most honorable man in AEW. In one week more people have seen me with this belt than any other because no one knows about it! I’m going to change ROH and it’s the era of Ring of Jericho and it starts tonight against Bandido! and sports entertainers beat wrestlers every single time!” Jericho introduces Garcia and says he think he is an amazing champion and sports entertainer and has a gift for him. He opens it up and it’s a purple bucket hat. Garcia looks completely unenthused, and Garcia slowly takes it off and throws it down and knocks out Luigi Primo! He says this is enough, it’s not what I got into this business for and I’ve had enough and I wanna tell you something: “Chris, I think it’s time for me to–” and Jericho stops him. He says “I want you to think about this, this is a crossroads and make the right decision, make the wrong one I’ll take you out.” He asks him if he’s a sports entertainer or a pro wrestler; Garcia stares back at Jericho as the crowd is chanting “You’re a wrestler!”
DANIELSON’S MUSIC HITS! He comes down to the ring with William Regal and the crowd is chanting YES! throughout. Danielson has a mic and says Chris it seems to me you’re trying to tell Garcia what he’s supposed to be. Garcia I respect you, you can do whatever you want. You can stay with the JAS, if you wanna come to the BCC you can come with us!” Jericho tells him to shut his mouth, and how he’s trying to poach Garcia and he owns him. Daniel steps up to him now and says “I don’t belong to you, and I don’t gotta do nothing that you tell me to do. We supposed to be entertaining; what if I picked up this pizza and threw it on the ground? Is that entertaining? Or toss dough with Luigi? Or tag with Justin Roberts? Do you think it would be entertaining if I teamed with Danielson?” The crowd comes unglued. He says Me and Bryan vs Sammy and Jericho!
Daddy Magic interrupts and says “We are sick of this, you had nothing and we took you in and now you wanna spit in our face? I oughta knock you out right now.” Bryan says “You wanna punch me, in Philadelphia? Well I have good news, I was told I can come out and have a match with anyone wanting to fight me, and you said that so….the entertainer Daddy Magic vs the heart of Pro Wrestling Bryan Danielson right here, right now!”
“Daddy Magic” Matt Menard vs. “The American Dragon” Bryan Danielson
Regal is on commentary for this match and I will always love the relationship between him and Excalibur.
Menard gets Bryan in the corner but gets reversed and takes a bunch of vicious kicks and chops and gets shoulder blocked down into an armbar. Bryan stomps on the arm and gets Menard into the corner; Daddy Magic now with a series of chops but Bryan with an uppercut to defend. Bryan up top now but Menard knocks him off to the outside!
Back from the break Menard is in control with a clothesline to Bryan, and another standing lariat for a two count. Menard with stomps but Bryan fights through it and powers up! HUGE chops now from Bryan into the side kicks! Moonsault out of the corner and flying forearm! Menard in the corner and Bryan hits a running dropkick trifecta! Now the YES kicks just pounding the chest but Angelo pulls him out before the final one but Danielson wipes out Menard and tries to follow up but gets run into the corner after a distraction from Parker! Parker with a big DDT on the floor now to Bryan on the floor. Daddy Magic with a powerbomb 1…2…NO!
Here comes Claudio to even up the odds and runs over Parker! He’s now literally just carrying him on his shoulders out of the arena! Danielson hits the Buisaiku Knee and locks in the Labell lock and Menard has to tap!
WINNER: Bryan Danielson
Danielson celebrates after as the commentators run down the rest of the card for the evening including Moxley vs. Juice Robinson!
A promo video recaps Moxley winning the title last week and the story of Moxley’s journey and his match against Juice, also MJF speaks next!
Promo video recapping the MJF/Wheeler Yuta promo segment from last week including the assault on Tony Schiavone.
Wheeler Yuta storms down and calls out MJF. “We have a problem, and it isn’t your army or try and cheap shot me with the ring because I’ve been hit by harder and better men; but you have the audacity to put your hands on Tony who’s done more than you ever will! What better punishment then to come down and fight me in my city! But we all know he likes to hide behind all his groups; even the microphone and Max knows when the bell rings he can’t hang with me.” Wheeler goes on about random Philly stuff until…
MJF’s music hits! He cuts the music off and calls Phllly he place you live if you can’t afford New York! He runs down Tony and gives a bit of praise to Yuta about their time on the independents…”HOWEVER you made a mistake going toe to toe with Daddy and Daddy had to spank you. You say I don’t care but you’re taking time away from the biggest draw in AEW. You have as much charisma as Joe Frazier who is dead by the way.” “It’s almost like at 26 years of age, I don’t care because I make more money than anyone here, anyone at home because” Wheeler interrupts and says he doesn’t care he just wants to leave him in a pool of blood on Broad Street! “Bad things happen in Philadelphia and tonight is no exception.” He goes after MJF and the Gunn Club come out; he pretends to wanna wrestle Yuta, and says he won’t face him until next week. “I’m going to the press box, watch Moxley be a horrible wrestler and maybe cash in on the Blackpool Cuckold Club.” and walks off. The Gunn Club finish his catchphrase as they walk out.
Up next is Moxley vs. Juice Robinson!
Recap video of Darby Allin and hypes up Lethal vs. Allin and it’ll be Lethal on his own with no help it looks like.
