AEW presents its Full Gear pay per view tonight. THREE title matches are on the card - none bigger than Kenny Omega defending the AEW Championship against Hangman Page.
On last night’s Rampage, Hangman confronted the Young Bucks backstage and promised to “ruin” them if they as much as lay a hand on him during tonight’s title match.
Dr. Britt Baker puts her AEW Women’s Championship on the line tonight against Tay Conti.
The Lucha Brothers defend the AEW Tag Titles against FTR.
Bryan Danielson will collide with Miro in the final of the World Title Eliminator Tournament.
Plus, CM Punk vs. Eddie Kingston...
The Inner Circle vs. Scorpio Sky, Ethan Page & American Top Team’s Junior Dos Santos, Andrei Arlovsky & Dan Lambert...
Darby Allin vs. MJF...
Adam Cole & the Young Bucks vs. Jurassic Express & Christian Cage...
And Cody Rhodes & Pac vs. Malakai Black & Andrade El Idolo.
The main show starts at 8PM Eastern.
The Buy-In pre-show begins at 7:30PM Eastern...and that will have Thunder Rosa & Hikaru Shida vs. Nyla Rose & Jamie Hayter
Getting back to last night’s Rampage…
Matt Hardy beat Orange Cassidy in a Lumberjack Match after The Blade hit Cassidy with a pair of brass knuckles.
Dante Martin pinned Ariya Daivari with his double springboard moonsault. After the match, Ricky Starks, Powerhouse Hobbs & Hook invited Martin to join Team Taz.
Jungle Boy beat Bobby Fish. Adam Cole’s plan for a post-match attack fizzled...and Fish was left alone to deal with the consequences, which included a Killswitch from Christian Cage.
Jade Cargill made quick work of Santana Garrett.
(STINGER: New Japan)
New Japan is running a major show of its own on U.S. soil tonight. It’s Battle In The Valley from San Jose.
Jay White will defend the NEVER Openweight Championship against Tomohiro Ishii. IF Ishii loses, he can never challenge for that title again.
Kazuchika Okada will go one-on-one with Buddy Matthews, who will be making his New Japan debut.
Other matches include...
Juice Robinson vs. Moose.
Will Ospreay vs. Ren Narita..
And Josh Alexander vs. Yuya Uemura.
The show begins at 11PM Eastern. English commentary for the live broadcast will be exclusive to FITE TV. New Japan World will only have the Japanese language commentary when the show is live.
This is an incredibly busy weekend for New Japan.
Back in Japan...the Best Of The Super Juniors tournament begins on Saturday...
And on Sunday, the World Tag League kicks off...with six tournament matches, including Tetsuya Naito & SANADA vs. Hirooki Goto & YOSHI-HASHI...Hiroshi Tanahashi & Toru Yano vs. EVIL & Yujiro Takahashi...and Taichi & Zack Sabre Jr. vs. Minoru Suzuki & TAKA Michinoku.
Pro-Wrestling NOAH has a big show of its own on Saturday with three title matches on the card, including Kaito Kiyomiya & Masa Kitamiya defending the GHC Tag Team Titles against Naomichi Marufuji & Keiji Muto.
Plus, Kenoh challenges Masaaki Mochizuki for the GHC National Championship.
It seems no one’s spot is safe when it comes to the teams for the elimination tag matches at Survivor Series.
Jeff Hardy beat Sami Zayn on last night’s SmackDown. As a result, Zayn is OFF the SmackDown men’s team. No replacement was named.
Sasha Banks, Naomi & Aliyah beat Shayna Baszler, Shotzi & Natalya. Aliyah reversed Natalya’s Sharpshooter into a rollup to get the pin. Naomi had a hand in the finish.
That apparently upset Sonya Deville, because moments later backstage, Deville informed Aliyah that she’s off the SmackDown women’s team at Survivor Series...and there’s no replacement named for that spot either.
King Woods got a win over Universal Champion Roman Reigns via disqualification after The Usos interfered. This was a non-title match...BUT it was stated before the match that the loser must “bend the knee” to the winner, and if Reigns did not adhere to this..he would be stripped of his title and banished from SmackDown.
Reigns was on one knee after the match after The Usos beat up Woods, so I guess he technically delivered on the stipulation.
Also last night, Los Lotharios beat the Intercontinental Champion Shinsuke Nakamura & Rick Boogs.
And NXT’s Von Wagner appeared backstage during SmackDown...apparently as backup for Adam Pearce.
WWE responded to Keith Lee stating earlier this week that he paid for his own medical bills and expenses.
WWE released a statement Friday, saying “Lee’s recent comments implying WWE failed to pay his medical bills are erroneous.”
