The week ahead: What awaits us on AEW Dynamite

As we wrap up for the evening, let’s take a look at what we’ve got lined up for this Wednesday’s episode of AEW Dynamite. The only match announced so far is a mixed-gender tag team match that will continue the feuds between Saraya – Britt Baker and Adam Cole – Chris Jericho.

We will also see more of the fallout from this weekend’s AEW Double or Nothing pay-per-view. For instance, what will Don Callis and Konosuke Takeshita have to say after their surprise alliance that screwed Kenny Omega and The Elite out of the Anarchy in the Arena match?

You can see the current card for the 5/31 AEW Dynamite below:

  • Saraya & Chris Jericho vs. Britt Baker & Chris Jericho
  • Fallout from Double or Nothing 2023

Giovanni Vinci

Giovanni Vinci is tired of Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn

On the 5/29 episode of Raw, Undisputed WWE Tag Team Champions Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens came face-to-face with Imperium, the trio of Intercontinental Champion Gunther, Ludwig Kaiser, and Giovanni Vinci. During the exchange, Owens pointed out how Vinci, whom he called “Baldy,” never speaks up on the microphone.

Well, after the show went off the air, Imperium appeared on Raw Talk, and Vinci verbally unleashed some of his disdain for KO & Zayn. Maybe he’ll get a promo on television soon enough.

You know, for someone with the passion for this sport like Ludwig and I have, it’s been really hard to see Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn walk around with those Tag Team Titles for the last two months. It’s long overdue that these Tag Team Titles are held by somebody who represents this sport the way it needs to be respected: with honor, dignity, and respect! It’s time that these titles come home to Imperium.


What's in store for next week's WWE Raw

Another week, another Raw, and tonight’s episode felt like a fresh approach that allowed the new World Heavyweight Champion, Seth Rollins, to truly shine. But it was also the beginning of Money in the Bank season, with Ricochet and Shinsuke Nakamura both qualifying for the men’s Money in the Bank ladder matches. The men’s matches will continue this Friday when LA Knight battles Montez Ford.

Women’s qualifying matches will kick off on next week’s episode of Raw! You can see the current card for the 6/5 WWE Raw below:

  • Money in the Bank qualifying match: Becky Lynch vs. Sonya Deville
  • Money in the Bank qualifying match: Natalya vs. Zoey Stark

Seth Rollins

This is Monday Night Rollins, Baby!

Styles and Priest struggle for control. AJ wants the tag but he’s Irish whipped into the opposite corner. He tries to fight off both opponents at once but Priest strikes him and throws him outside of the ring. Rhea and Dom try to team up on Styles but Seth stops them and gets enough attention from the ref to get the other two JD members ejected from ringside.

Styles with a pele kick in the ring on Priest! He makes it to Rollins! Balor is tagged in, too, and they go to war. Seth with a flatliner on Ballor into the second turnbuckle, then taking down Priest on the outside, and then a diving knee and superkick to Balor. The crowd sings along to his song as Finn begs for some mercy. Rollins tackles Finn into the corner, but Finn comes back with a small package for a close fall. Priest is tagged back in!

He walks right over to AJ and punches him off of the ring apron. Priest wants the south of heaven, but Rollins flips out of it and uses a discus forearm. Priest uses momentum off of the ropes and hits a clothesline for another close two. Priest climbs to the top rope, but he’s met there by Seth and gets hit with a superplex. Balor with a blind tag! Priest reverses the Falcon Arrow and then Finn tries for the Coupe de Grace. It’s avoided! Seth tags in AJ, and Priest is tagged in. Another pele kick is delivered, followed by an Ishiguroshi neckbreaker.

Styles knees Finn outside the ring, allowing Seth to nail him with a suicide dive. AJ wants a Phenomenal Forearm, but Priest backs out of range and uses the Razor’s Edge! Seth stomps him out of nowhere! AJ struggles to the corner, but tags Seth in and uses an emphatic second stomp for the win! The World Champion stands tall tonight!

Seth Rollins

Damian Priest & Finn Balor vs. Seth Rollins & AJ Styles

It seemed at first like Dominik was going to be a part of the match, but it was just a diversion to let Finn get a cheap shot on Seth. Priest tags in and he and Seth go to battle, but there’s a brief moment where Seth rolls out of the ring and has a throwback moment with Rhea that calls to Shawn Michaels and Melina. Priest holds control for quite a while, using a jumping back elbow and and armbar to try keeping Seth grounded.

Rollins tags in Styles at the same time Finn tags in. Styles with several moves on Finn, including a backbreaker before an attempt at a Styles Clash. Rollins knees out Priest. Balor with a Sling Blade to take out Rollins. Styles starts turning attention to Dom on the outside when, suddenly, Priest pounces him over the announcer’s table.

A Memorial Day in America tribute is shown when we return to the show. The announcers then go over the card for next week’s Raw, which we’ll update you on after the show.

Are y’all ready for the main event of Raw?! AJ Styles comes out to the ring first, followed by the World Heavyweight Champion, Seth Rollins.

Rhea Ripley

Rhea Ripley proud of her damage to Natalya

We see a replay of what happened between Natalya and Judgment Day at Night of Champions. Byron Saxton interviews Rhea backstage and congratulates her on the victory. Ripley says she destroyed Nattie, which Dominik agrees with and says she needs to watch herself. Rhea says it’s true and it’s all on Nattie for what happened to her.

Saxton asks which two people are going to represent Judgment Day in the tag team match tonight, but they don’t reveal it quite yet. The match is up next!

Shinsuke Nakamura

We have our 2nd man qualified for the Money in the Bank match

We come back with Reed and Shinsuke trading forearms until Nakamura reverses into an armbar. Reed with a headbutt and a stiff clothesline for another close two count. Shinsuke finally gets Reed staggered enough that he can hit the sliding German suplex. He wants the Kinshasa but Reed catches him with a Samoan drop. Reed climbs to the top but Shinsuke kicks him down and uses knees to his abdomen.

Shinsuke jumps off of the top rope but he eats a knee and a ripcord powerslam. Reed misses the Tsunami from the top rope. Shinsuke with a knee strike to the back of the head, followed by the KINSHASA! Reed rolls out of the ring to save himself at the last second. Shinsuke goes to meet him on the outside and jumps off of the ring steps with a kick. Bronson crawls back in at 9 but he’s met with another Kinsasha for the victory!

Bronson Reed

Bronson Reed vs. Shinsuke Nakamura

Backstage, Ronda Rousey and Shayna are interviewed, and Ronda says she doesn’t care what the fickle masses think because they know who they are. Ronda says they got it because they’re the baddest team on the planet, and their title belts prove it!

Shinsuke makes his entrance first, followed by Bronson Reed. Reed goes on the attack with a shoulder and several headbutts on Shinsuke. He delivers a body slam, prompting Nakamura to roll to the outside of the ring. Bronson chases after him, but Nakamura returns and does his, “Come on!” taunt. Shinsuke’s shots are ineffective. Bronson with a body shot, an elbow, and a steam roller to squish Shinsuke like a bug.

Reed with a chop and a punch to the back of his head. He follows it up with an Irish whip that sends Nakamura crumbling to the mat. Shinsuke with the enziguri on Reed and then a sliding German suplex, but Reed stops him and moves to the apron. Shinsuke swipes Bronson’s legs out from under him and then uses a knee and a guillotine knee as we go to the break.


Riddle is ready for a future MITB qualifying match

Cathy Kelly is backstage with Matt Riddle. She asks him about his upcoming Money in the Bank qualifying match. Riddle is hyped up and feels so ready to get the MITB briefcase and cash in on one of the top Champions. Gunther appears, saying that he is glad Riddle has a shot in the MITB ladder match, and if he wins, he wants Riddle to cash in on the Intercontinental Championship so he can embarrass him.

Up next is Shinsuke Nakamura vs. Bronson Reed in a Money in the Bank qualifying match!

Cody Rhodes

Cody Rhodes addresses what happened at Night of Champions

We see a replay of what went down between Brock Lesnar and Cody Rhodes at Night of Champions. Here comes The America Nightmare with his arm sitting in a sling now. Rhodes asks, “So, Albany, NY, what do you want to talk about?” Rhodes acknowledges that due to referee stoppage, he lost his match against Brock Lesnar. People thought he was crazy for being in the match at all and then not tapping out when he was trapped in the Kimora lock. Rhodes says that he doesn’t want to be a man that quits.

He thinks he would have tapped out a long time ago. But he thinks back to when John Cena used to say, “Never give up!” It hurt like hell, but he has a question for Brock. He’ll asks it into the camera since Lesnar isn’t here tonight and probably on an annual vacation. Rhodes asks if he’s truly satisfied with this being done now that they’re 1 – 1. Rhodes gives Lesnar an open challenge! It doesn’t matter where it is, if he’s in a ring, he’s ready to fight Brock Lesnar!

Rhodes lists some of Brock’s incredible accomplishments over his life, like breaking the streak and being UFC Champion. He might be Beast enough to break the arm, but he’s not man enough to make him tap out. Lesnar is “afraid” of what cannot be broken and “afraid” of Cody Rhodes!

Dolph Ziggler

Dolph Ziggler vs. JD McDonagh

We see some more replays from Night of Champions, as well as a brief glimpse at Seth Rollins & AJ Styles getting ready for their match tonight. Dolph Ziggler makes his entrance, followed by JD McDonagh. The bell rings and Dolph starts strong, attacking JD with several shots that send him into the corner. JD avoids one and slides to the outside. He bounces the top rope into Dolph’s face and uses a saito suplex to spike Dolph on his head.

JD throws Dolph on the announcers table and then Irish whips him into the steel steps. They are both counted out! JD doesn’t care and stays on the attack, slamming Dolph’s head into the steel steps over and over. He drils his knee into Dolph’s head and then stomps it into the steel steps. “You will remember this night!” JD yells.

Cody Rhodes is coming up next!

Ronda Rousey

We've got new Women's Tag Team Champions

We come back to the match with Baszler tagging in Ronda Rousey to keep the attack on Shotzi. She uses an armbar on the ropes to Shotzi and then tags Shayna back in. She uses the signature move where she jumps on Shotzi’s arm. Shotzi thwarts Ronda away and uses a neckbreaker on Shayna to open a window to get to her partner. She makes it! Raquel comes in and uses shoulder tackles and clotheslines to take out most everyone around the ring and in it. Raquel with two fall away slams, but the second sends Shayna to her corner where Ronda tags in.

Raquel and Ronda battle, with Rousey hitting some punches to the abdomen before eating a clothesline. Shayna saves her from a Tejana Bomb, and then Ronda goes for the armbar on Raquel but she can’t get the arm extended. Bayley comes out of nowhere with an elbow on Ronda to save the match. Chelsea Green tags herself in and then her team takes out Ronda.

Raquel eats finishing moves from Green and Deville but still kicks out! Iyo Sky tags in on Chelsea and springboard dropkicks both partners out of the ring. Iyo nearly pins Raquel but Shotzi stops the pin with a senton. She pivots her attention to Bayley with a suicide dive and then tags in on behalf of her partner.

Ronda Rousey

Ronda Rousey & Shayna Baszler vs. Shotzi & Raquel vs. Damage CTRL vs. Chelsea Green & Sony Deville

Raquel Rodriguez & Shotzi come out first, followed by Sonya Deville & Chelsea Green. Then Bayley & Iyo of Damage CTRL make their entrance. They saved Ronda Rousey & Shayna Baszler for last.

Here we go! Raquel and Chelsea start out, but Green doesn’t want to start so she puts Bayley in. Raquel knocks her down once and then tags in Iyo. She performs some back handsprings and reversals to gain control. Forearms follow and then she tags in Bayley again. Raquel stops an Irish whip and slams Bayley into the mat. She tags in Green to escape, which Chelsea doesn’t want to happen. Raquel forces her into the match and starts knocking everyone out around the ring apron.

Raquel and Shotzi use their tandem suicide dive maneuver to take three women out as we head to commercial.

Raquel Gonzalez

Raquel Rodriguez confident heading into our next match

Backstage, Cathy Kelly interviews Raquel Rodriguez and Shotzi, asking them if they have built enough chemistry. Damage CTRL interrupts and says they aren’t even a real team, and Raquel would have picked anyone. Bayley dedicates the match to Dakota Kai. Raquel reminds them that they got beat by Raquel and Shotzi last Friday, and it will happen again.

Women’s Tag Title match is next!

Chad Gable

Imperium vs. Gable & Otis

Owens and Zayn watch from the commentary table as the bell rings. Ludwig with a shoulder tackle, but they begin wrestling back and forth, which we know Chad will likely be better at. Kaiser backs him into a corner and hits some strikes. Gable starts beating up both members of Imperium at once and then hits a monkey flip on Kaiser.

Valhalla from The Viking Raiders appears and chases after Dupri. She kicks Valhalla in the head! Dupri is chased out of the arena while Imperium continues the beating on Gable.

Otis with clotheslines to Imperium, followed by a worlds strongest slam to Vinci. A clothesline in the corner to Kaiser follows, followed by the caterpillar. Vinci breaks the count but gets tossed out of the ring from the big man. Gable tags in but eats the Imperium bomb shortly thereafter and loses the match. Imperium get the victory!!!

Ludwig Kaiser

Ludwig Kaiser has words for Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn

Ludwig Kaiser speaks first, saying it was indeed an impressive victory at NoC for Zayn and Owens, but it wasn’t as impressive as Gunther’s Intercontinental Title match. Owens asks why they are even here when no one even asked for them to come out. He loses his cool! Asking them, “What are you, a psycho?!” Zayn agrees, though, and says it’s true that they shouldn’t come out if no one said their name.

They recall beating the three of them with Riddle by their side — do they not remember that? Ludwig says they are an embarrassment and they are not worthy of holding the Tag Team Titles or representing Raw. Owens asks why Giovanni Vinci is always quite. They want “baldy” to talk! Kaiser interrupts them in anger. Wait, here comes The Alpha Academy! Gable gives him a long “shoooooosh!” He says that now that Maxxine Dupri really vibing with them all now, they’re the new and improved AA.

Sami and Kevin are cool with what he said, but then they prompt Gable to say, “A-thank you!” Imperium vs. Gable & Otis is next!

Kevin OWens

Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn celebrate the damage to The Bloodline

We see a replay from Night of Champions when Jimmy Uso finally pulled the trigger and attacked Roman Reigns to dissolve The Bloodline. Roman will be at SmackDown on Friday to address what has been happening within his family.

Here come the Undisputed WWE Tag Team Champions, Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn! The crowd loves them, singing Zayn’s song even after the music goes out. Zayn says they’re obviously feeling good tonight because at Night of Champions, they won. More than just the tag team titles, they won The Bloodline falling apart. And Roman deserves everything he got, Sami says. Even though Roman might be the greatest of all time and main event the next five WrestleManias, but for the rest of his life, he will always know that Zayn and Owens won.

Here comes Imperium!

Jinder Mahal

Indus Sher squashes some jobbers

Indus Sher (Veer and Sanga w/ Jinder Mahal) makes their entrance. We have two random competitors in the ring who don’t even get a proper entrance before getting attacked. Veer with a splash on jobber #1 in the corner, followed by a stomp to the spine. Sanga comes in and uses an assisted kick to drill jobber #1 in the face. He tags in #2! This guy is dressed like early 2000s Matt Hardy. Sanga dominates both men and chokeslams jobber #1 into jobber #2. Indus Sher with a tandem sidewalk slam/leg drop for the victory.

Trish Stratus

Trish Stratus explains why she chose to align with Zoey Starks

We return and Trish tells the audience that she’s glad they’re saying, “Thank you, Trish” to her. But she actually doesn’t care. And when she said I told you so, she did just that and beat Becky Lynch. Trish says these are “GOAT Tings.” Trish has a gnarly bruise on her chin! OUCH! Trish says Becky can go back to disappearing again and go through her stuff so real superstars can thrive. Real superstars like her new alliance, Zoey Stark.

Stratus praises Stark and introduces Zoey to the audience. They boo as Stark makes her trek down to the ring. Trish and Zoey hug when she makes it down to the ring, and Stark grabs a mic and says she came to the business to make a statement. She could have taken a long, hard difficult road like Lynch, or she could be led by someone like Trish Stratus. Zoey tells Trish, “Thank you.”

Stratus tells her she’s welcome. They point out how she has a bruise on her chin. This leads to Trish telling her that if Lynch shows her face, Stark will show her what’s up. Becky Lynch comes out! She says she’ll ruin Zoey’s life, and since she and Trish are both in their ring gear, she wants a rematch right now. Stark runs after Becky but is punched in the face and thrown into the ring barrier.

Lynch climbs into the ring and beats down Stark and Trish both until the numbers game eventually catch up to her. She’s kicked and assaulted in the corner of the ring. Z360 from Stark, but they aren’t done — Zoey holds Lynch up and Trish punches her directly in the chin to try giving her a matching bruise. They keep attacking her and shove a “Thank you, Trish” shirt on her wounded body.

Her comes Indus Sher!

Trish Stratus

What will Trish Stratus have to say?

Ricochet celebrates his victory and then we transition to highlights from Becky Lynch vs. Trish Stratus at Night of Champions. She will speak when we get back to Raw.


Ricochet advances to the MITB Ladder Match

We return from the commercial with Ricochet fighting Miz on the ring apron. Miz uses a forearm and a springboard crossbody for another two count! Miz is dishing out some impressive offense this match! Miz with the “yes” kicks, but Ricochet blocks the last one and hits a knee and running forearms to take down his opponent. Ricochet with a headbutt and a kick to the head of Miz.

Ricochet is shoved face-first into the turnbuckle and then eats a codebreaker off the second rope and a DDT for a close two count. Miz goes for the Skull Crushing Finale but it’s thwarted. Ricochet with a roundhouse kick, a unique neckbreaker, and a shooting star press from the top rope for the victory!


Ricochet vs. The Miz

We come back from the break, and Adam Pearce is making sure the Styles & Rollins vs. Judgment Day match is approved with management. Rollins is nearby and he and AJ push hard for the match. It is approved! We have our main event.

The Miz is already in the ring when we return from a commercial. The bell rings, and this one is getting started! Ricochet comes in quick but is caught in an attempt at the skull-crushing finale quick. Ricochet avoids it and gets leverage with an enziguri. He superkicks The Miz on the apron and follows it up with a shooting star press off of the ring post. Miz runs in with a hurricanrana and a boot! That was nice.

Ricochet is on the outside of the ring now, so Miz comes out and slams his head into the announcer’s table. He tosses him back inside and delivers a double axe handle for a close two-count. Break time!


Ready for the first 2023 Money in the Bank qualifying match?

We see a rundown of the card for tonight’s Raw before Ricochet makes his entrance. He battles The Miz in a Money in the Bank qualifying match after the commercial!

AJ Styles

Styles has a message for Seth Rollins

Styles comes down to the ring and stares Seth down before grabbing a microphone of his own. He says he knows he is on SmackDown, but he couldn’t resist coming to Monday Night Raw to tell Seth “congratulations.” Styles claims he left it all in the ring on Saturday, but it almost seemed like Seth knew every move before it occurred. AJ says Seth doesn’t “deserve” anything because he “earned” the right to be Heavyweight Champion.

Rollins says he’s not great at sentimental stuff, but after the beating he gave AJ at Night of Champions, Styles has earned a handshake. They shake hands before, suddenly, here comes The Judgment Day! Finn Balor acts like he’s getting sick at what is going on in the ring. Balor says this display of affection is making him want to puke, which Damian Priest agrees with.

Rhea Ripley tells the duo that they’re the ones that run Monday Night Raw. Priest says that now that The Bloodline has imploded, JD also runs the entire WWE. Ripley tells Seth that he went from being “the Champion” to “just another one.” Ripley promises someone will take the World Title from Seth, even Dom Dom, which makes everyone in the crowd boo. Rollins cracks up at this, but Dom claps back by saying he’s defeated Styles before.

Dom wants to “finish the job” Styles and Rollins started on Saturday! They challenge them to a tag team match, which Styles and Rollins accept! Two JD members will battle Rollins and Styles in the main event.

Seth Rollins

Seth Rollins' celebration with the World Title is interrupted

Seth Rollins comes down through the audience like he’s back in The Shield. He gives high-fives to people as he walks down to the ring, savoring the moment. Unfortunately, Seth’s pants are ripped a bit 😅😂 Pyro and streamers come next!

Seth grabs a microphone as the crowd continues singing his entrance music at a deafening pitch. Rollins welcomes Albany, NY to “Monday Night Rollins!” He is the visionary, the revolutionary, he is Seth “Freakin’” Rollins! The crowd gives him a long “you deserve it” chant while Rollins basks in the moment. There have been highs and lows, but, finally, Monday Night Raw has a Champion that wants to be around and is ready to fight.

Rollins wants “all the fights” no matter who it is — whoever steps up to him, the result will always be the same. The image will be the same thing each Monday: him with the World Title and the crowd singing his song. It’s AJ Styles! Here comes “The Phenomenal One.”


WWE Raw starts now!!!

Let’s get this party started! We see a video recapping what went down at Night of Champions, and then we instantly get the intro for the NEW World Champion, Seth Rollins!

Vince McMahon

Teddy Long claims Vince McMahon is one of the "nicest people in the world"

WWE Hall of Famer Teddy Long has worked on and off with the company since 1998, serving in various roles like referee, manager, and a memorable General Manager of SmackDown. (“You’re gonna go one on one with the Un-der-taker!”) This has allowed countless interactions with Vince McMahon, and in a new interview, Long wanted to clear up a misconception some have about Vince.

According to Teddy, people think Vince is a difficult person to work with at times, but, to him, Vince is one of the “nicest people” he knows.

“I can’t just say what he’s really like because I didn’t hang out with him that much, but the time that I get a chance to spend with him, I thought he was one of the nicest people in the world.

“I’ve seen him go on these rampages and stuff, but like I always say, this man has a billion dollar operation that he’s running and then one little thing can happen and can screw his whole company up. So I can understand why if somebody goes out and says the wrong thing or makes a mistake, you know what that can do. I don’t know if I’d be as mad as I’ve seen him, but he lets you know, don’t make that mistake no more and I didn’t have no problem with that. I didn’t have no problem with Vince. He was just as nice as he could be.”

A series of matches will take place to determine which men and women will be participants in their respective ladder matches at the premium live event on July 1, 2023. The man and woman to climb a ladder and retrieve the briefcase first will earn the opportunity to challenge for any WWE Title at any place and any time. racked the brains of the WWE Universe earlier today, asking them:

Who do you hope to see become this year’s #MITB contract holders?

LA Knight and Iyo Sky were two names brought up several times in the replies. You can see a variety of the responses below:

Kenny Omega

Kenny Omega thinks that WWE legend is "the best"

Some dream matches in professional wrestling will never see the light of day, and even if they did, it’s hard to catch two phenomenal athletes in the prime of their careers battling one another.

For example, Kenny Omega always looked up to Olympic Gold Medalist and WWE Hall of Famer, Kurt Angle, even going as far as to call him “the best” in a recent interview. And though a match between both men would still be memorable, can you imagine a 2006 “Wrestling Machine” Kurt Angle vs. a 2018 Kenny Omega?!

“I don’t study myself when I want to learn, I study Kurt. He’s the best for a reason. I take the L – but it’d be a heck of match”

Jeff Hardy

Jeff Hardy is one of the most recognizable faces in professional wrestling, even when he’s got some wild face paint on! Jeff returned to AEW this past April after dealing with issues related to drug and alcohol, but now that he’s made his way back into the fold, he knows there’s a journey ahead of him to prove he’ll stay on his game in and out of the squared circle.

Man, it’s been almost a year since I’ve been in an AEW ring in front of AEW fans, and I am just so grateful to be here an be building back trust with everybody.


What awaits us on Monday Night Raw

There may be some spoilers floating around about what’s going down on tonight’s episode of WWE Raw, but for those choosing to skip them, let’s look at what has been announced for tonight’s show. Arguably the most exciting thing on the card is the Money in the Bank ladder match qualifying bouts, signifying that we’re on the road to one of the most exciting premium live events of the year: Money in the Bank.

Good evening!

How are we this evening, folks?! We’re back for another episode of WWE Raw, and though we don’t know much about what will go down on the show based on advertisements, we do know a four-way tag team match for the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championships will take place. This will also be the first night that newly-crowned World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins arrives home with big gold around his waist.

In the realm of news, some spoilers have leaked ahead of tonight’s show that will give curious eyes a bit more information about where Raw is heading tonight. Over in AEW, it was confirmed that AEW World Champion MJF is not actually injured following the four-way World Championship match at Double or Nothing. The spot where he hurt his forearm and then continued to sell it throughout the night left him “banged up” but nothing serious.
