Posted on 5/19/124 by Bob Magee



Three straight hours of All Elite action tonight! AEW
COLLISION & RAMPAGE were broadcast from the Moda Center in
Portland, OR!


It’s Saturday night and you know what that means! Saturday
night’s alright for fighting!


Tony Schiavone and Nigel McGuinness were the broadcast team
for tonight’s event.


“The Aerial Assassin” Will Ospreay

vs.

Shane Taylor Promotions’ Shane Taylor (with Anthony Ogogo)!


Before the match began, International Champion Roderick
Strong, accompanied by ROH World Tag Team Champions Mike
Bennett and Matt Taven, walked to the broadcast booth.
Roderick joined the commentary team.


Ospreay charged and Taylor, but it was like running into a
brick wall, Taylor knocking Will right to the mat. Taylor
walloped Ospreay with a chop to the chest. Taylor told
Strong to pay attention. While Taylor was distracted,
Ospreay shoved Taylor into Taven and Bennett! Ospreay tossed
a water at Roderick, splashing him right in the face. As the
ref was dealing with the Undisputed Kingdom, Anthony Ogogo
sucker punched Will Ospreay with a right hand strike!


Back in the ring, Taylor and Ospreay exchanged chops. Will
Ospreay hit a back elbow and then a running boot to Taylor.
Will clobbered Taylor with a flying forearm to the back of
Taylor’s head for a near fall.


Taylor countered the Hidden Blade and nailed Will with a
headbutt and then a splash for a two-count. Taylor power
bombed Will and then socked Will with a left handed lariat
for a near fall.


“Look at the face of Ospreay. He may not get to Double Or
Nothing,” said Nigel.


Ospreay rallied back with a standing Spanish Fly! Taylor
blocked the Os Cutter and planted Will for a two-count.
Ospreay dazed Taylor with three thrust kicks. Ospreay hit
the Storm Driver and pinned Taylor!


“Nine wins without a loss in 2024, and number ten could come
one week from tomorrow night for the International
Championship,” said Tony Schiavone.


Roderick Strong jumped up on one side of the apron. Bennett
and Taven blindsided Ospreay from the opposite side. Ospreay
knocked them out and hit a tope con hiro on the Undisputed
Kingdom!


IWGP World Heavyweight Champion Jon Moxley and Claudio
Castagnoli were backstage! Moxley had a warning for Konosuke
Takeshita ahead of their IWGP World Heavyweight Championship
Eliminator Match next Sunday at AEW Double Or Nothing.


Moxley: “Takeshita is a blue chipper, and he came after me!
What’s my secret? What’s the secret of the BCC? You get used
to being a target. Guys like you, the Don Callis Family,
you’re chasing the gold and the fame and fortune. BCC, we
don’t care about that. We do it because this is who we are.
We don’t hunt because we are hungry, we hunt because we are
lions. We don’t play for money, we play for blood.”


Claudio: “A lot of times I feel like I’m the voice of reason
in the BCC, even if no one listens, and that’s fine. But
things keep repeating and repeating and I don’t like
standing here and talking to the camera. I think what
matters is going out there and showing it week after week.


“You know how many people stand back here and practice their
lines in their mirror and then come out here and tell you
it’s been their dream their entire life. But it’s all fake
because they don’t live it. We can see through the fake.
Because you try to make a name out of us. Big mistakes.
Because you are dealing with the real deal right here.”


Moxley: “Takeshita, you started this game. At Double Or
Nothing, we’re just going to finish it.”


Orange Cassidy was backstage about to be interviewed about
Trent and their match from Dynamite two weeks ago, when Don
Callis interrupted!


Callis: “Orange, I know how hard that was. You had to put
down your best friend. I had to put down family. I know
better than anyone what you’re going through. In fact, after
what I had to do last year and put down a family member, the
best thing you can do with what you’re going through is get
right back on the horse. You need to start wrestling again.
You need some opponents. I have access to everyone.”


Callis put his arm around Orange, and they walked away
together, Callis continuing the conversation.


HOOK vs. Johnny TV (with Taya Valkyrie)!


Hook used a judo throw on Johnny TV. Johnny stunned Hook
with a running knee strike. Hook hit a belly to belly suplex
and followed up with a lariat. Hook hurled Johnny TV with
another judo throw.


Johnny retaliated with a jaw breaker. Taya distracted the
ref while Johnny connected with a springboard kick. Johnny
landed the Starship Pain on Hook for a two-count! Johnny
went for another Starship Pain, but Hook avoided it. Hook
applied the Red Rum and Johnny TV tapped out!


“Hook will go on to Dynamite in the trios qualifier match to
see if he can get another shot at the FTW Title,” said
Schiavone.


“The Wrestler” Katsuyori Shibata vs. Rocky “Azucar” Romero!


Shibata put Rocky in a figure four leg lock early in the
match. Rocky escaped and applied the iron octopus on
Shibata. Shibata put Rocky back in the figure four. Rocky
escaped again and drilled Shibata with a tornado DDT!


Rocky double stomped Shibata off the top rope as Shibata was
draped over the middle rope. Shibata leg tripped Rocky and
then put Rocky in a leg lock. Rocky reached the ropes,
forcing the ref to break the hold. Shibata scored with a
running dropkick in the corner. Shibata rocked Rocky with a
PK kick and then put Rocky in the figure four again, and
this time Rocky tapped out!


“Shibata moves on! So now we know two men,” said Tony.


“That’s right. Shibata advances alongside Hook, and one more
competitor, and Wednesday night, and then that winner will
face Chris Jericho for the FTW Championship,” replied Nigel.


“The Bounty Hunter” Bryan Keith vs. Iron Savages’ Boulder!


Boulder picked apart Bryan Keith with short arm lariats.
Bryan Keith ran into a straight kick from Boulder. Boulder
powerslammed Bryan Keith for a near fall.


Bryan Keith stunned Boulder with a leaping European Uppercut
and then a cutter, and Bryan Keith pinned Boulder!


“It’ll be Bryan Keith, Hook, and Shibata at Dynamite on
Wednesday, and the three men will wrestle for a shot at
Chris Jericho’s FTW Championship,” said Tony Schiavone.


“The Bastard” Pac was backstage with a message for Bullet
Club Gold!


Pac: “I saw their little television message and credit where
credit is due. They are hilarious chaps. And typically,
their naughtier behavior would rattle my bastard feathers,
but not today. I couldn’t care less. You expect me to care
about those idiots. Make me feel anything. I’m begging you.
I’m daring you. Make me care. Try harder. Make me care.”


The Unified World Trios Champions the Bang Bang Gang were
making their entrance and when they turned around, we saw
“The Bastard” Pac was at their feet, unconscious!


“That’s Pac! What the hell?” asked Schiavone.


Jay White: “I bet you care now, don’t you, bastard? I told
you! Stay out of Bang Bang business!”


“The Professor” Serena Deeb vs. Anna Jay!


Deeb went right after the back of Anna Jay. Deeb nailed Anna
with a swinging neck breaker for a near fall. Deeb tied up
Anna Jay in the Lady in the Lake and then dropkicked Anna
Jay on the tailbone.


Anna Jay rallied back with a suplex. Deeb cracked Anna Jay
with a neck breaker over the middle rope. Anna connected
with a forearm shot and then a high kick to Deeb. Anna Jay
followed up with a flatliner for a near fall.


Deeb dropped Anna with a release German Suplex. Anna Jay
locked on the Queen Slayer but gave it up as she was almost
pinned by Deeb. Deeb faceplanted Anna Jay. Deeb placed Anna
Jay in the Serenity Lock and made Anna Jay tap out!


Luther the Butler came down to the ring and walked away with
Deeb’s Dojo flag. Mariah May grabbed the other side of the
flag and held it up while AEW Women’s World Champion
“Timeless Toni Storm undressed behind the flag and then
wrapped it around herself!


Deeb chased Storm up the ramp and Storm retreated to the
back!


“The Patriarchy’s” Nick Wayne vs. Jack Cartwheel!


Nick Wayne stomped a mudhole into Jack in the corner.
Cartwheel connected with a cartwheel kick. Cartwheel back
flipped over the top rope, but Nick Wayne moved out of the
way! Cartwheel crashed and burned!


Nick Wayne punted Cartwheel in the back with a kick. Nick
Wayne smashed Cartwheel with Wayne’s World! Wayne cracked
Cartwheel with the House Call kick and pinned Cartwheel!


“Freshly Squeezed” Orange Cassidy vs. Private Party’s Isiah
Kassidy!


Orange took down Kassidy with an arm drag. Orange put Isiah
in a back slide for a near fall. Orange put Isiah in a bow
and arrow submission, but Isiah escaped and transitioned
into a pinning position, but Orange kicked out.


Orange nailed Kassidy with a tope suicida. Don Callis was
seen watching the match on a monitor backstage.


Tony Schiavone announced that this Wednesday on AEW Dynamite
it’ll be Orange Cassidy against Konosuke Takeshita.


Outside the ring, Orange clocked Kassidy with a dropkick,
and then whipped Kassidy into the barricade. Trent walked
down to the front row, sneering at Orange. Kassidy planted
Orange onto the edge of the barricade, right in front of
Trent. Kassidy rocked Orange with a tilt-a-whirl back
breaker.


Isiah sent Orange into the turnbuckles. Isiah moved the
steel ring steps and nodded to Trent.


“I’m going to finish this job, but when I do, you owe me
some big bucks,” Isiah said to Trent.


Trent tried to piledrive Orange on the steel ring steps but
Orange countered with a back drop, sending Kassidy crashing
onto the arena floor!


“Trent is fuming at ringside as Orange has fought his way
back into this match,” said Nigel.


Orange and Isiah slugged it out in the center of the ring.
Orange nailed Kassidy with the Stun Dog Millionaire and then
the spinning DDT! Orange threw his elbow pad at Trent’s
direction. Orange attempted the Beach Break, but Isiah
countered with a sunset flip for a near fall.


Cassidy dodged a splash from Isiah, but Isiah fired back
with a cutter on Orange. Both men pumped kick each other on
the apron, and both men collapsed. Isiah used the referee to
stun Orange with the Silly String! Isiah followed up with a
swanton for a near fall on Orange! Orange pulped Isiah with
the Beach Break out of nowhere and scored the pin!


Don Callis was smiling backstage, watching the monitor.


Lexy Nair interviewed Trent who was still in the front row.


Trent: “Being at ringside it’s plainly obvious to me that
I’m a better professional wrestler than Orange Cassidy. The
only reason he beat me the other week is because he cheated.
He doesn’t think the rules apply to him. While we’re out
here, I’d like to issue a challenge. Double Or Nothing. A
straight up wrestling match, myself against that narcissist
—”


Orange heard enough and attacked Trent! Security pulled
Orange away from Trent!

Caster said his latest rap and video was all about the

update on FTR and Danielson.

partially worked because unfortunately FTR won’t be able to
make it to Dynamite this week. But the Elite also partially
failed. The Elite say they want to change the world? They
won’t even show up on Saturdays. And this Wednesday I’m
going to be on Dynamite!”
