@JasmineAEW , Booking Ricky Starks for 2021.

Jan-Feb: Cody, Sting & Darby Allin

Starks and Cody face off against each other twice on Dynamite, once in January, and again on the Revolution go home show. They each get a win a piece. He also has a face off against Sting, in an effort to make himself look like the biggest star of Team Taz.

At Revolution, Ricky Starks defeats Darby Allin for the TNT title in a 2 out of 3 falls match. Starks wins the first fall by pin, while Allin wins the second fall by submission. Allin goes for the Coffin Drop to win the third fall, only for him to be caught and rolled up by Starks for the 3.

Mar- Scorpio Sky & Young Bucks

Starks gets embroiled in a short lived TNT title feud with Scorpio Sky that lasts 3 weeks tops, and manages to get Sky DQed for using a foreign object in the match, even though Starks brought it in the ring to begin with. He also attempt to go for the tag belts against the Young Bucks by teaming with Cage at the Blood & Guts tv special, but the effort falls short.

Later on in the show, he interferes in the 5 vs 5 Match Beyond featuring The Nightmare Family against the now-MJF led Inner Circle. Near the end of the match, Starks slams the cage door into Cody’s head, allowing MJF to lock in Salt of the Earth and gain a victory for his team. Starks cuts a promo afterwards how The Nightmare Family should have been facing Team Taz instead of Inner Circle at Blood & Guts to settle their differences. But Team Taz were blocked on a technicality of not having enough members for the match, and the recent addition of Leyla Hirsch to Team Taz didn’t count as AEW does not do intergender wrestling.

Apr-May - Lucha Bros

Attention is drawn to the Lucha Bros, when Fenix defeats Ricky Starks for the TNT title in a shock upset on Dynamite. This ends up bringing in Team Taz to face the Lucha Bros. PAC attempts to help his Death Triangle allies, but gets put on the shelf by Cage and Hobbs. After Fenix successfully defends against Sonny Kiss on an episode of Dynamite, Team Taz rushes the ring, looking to do damage to Fenix, only to be run off by Penta El 0M and a returning Cody.

On Dynamite, Team Taz manages to defeat the Lucha Bros and Cody when Hobbs makes Cody pass out to a bearhug that injures his ribs, which will force Cody to miss DoN. Starks throws out an open challenge for the Lucha Bros to find someone else to team with them. to face them at DoN. On the go home show to DoN, Penta defeats Starks after miscommunication involving Cage and Starks.

At DoN, the Lucha Bros tease their partner is Laredo Kid – his first appearance in AEW in 2 years – but then they actually bring out Lance Archer! Starks gets the pin on Fenix, enabling him to challenge for the TNT title on Dynamite, which he wins back. Just before the main event of DoN, as Team Taz are loading their luggage into their car, Cage and Hobbs are ambushed by Cody, who is wielding a crutch. Starks manages to hit Cody with a sucker punch, before Team Taz gets away.

Jun-Jul – Angelico & Trios tournament

As Ricky Starks cuts a promo in the ring, declaring himself to be the “best damn TNT champion there ever was” to a chorus of boos, Angelico and Jack Evans make their way onto the stage. Angelico points out that despite his vast in ring experience worldwide and decent W/L record in 2021, he had been overlooked for a TNT title shot for months. He demands a title shot at Fight for the Fallen, which Starks accepts.

At the June tv special (Fight for the Fallen, Night 1; Night 2 being held the first week of July), Starks faces Angelico, and despite Angelico’s best attempts to submit him, Starks comes away with the win. The effort impresses Taz enough to recruit Angelico and offer a spot on Team Taz, on the condition that he drops Jack Evans, who hasn’t had a singles win in months and his most recent defeat being to Luthor. Angelico refuses to take his offer, as Evans is his lifelong friend and tag partner. Only to be backstabbed by Evans, who want to start winning again and looks to Team Taz for guidance.

In a Trios tournament special on Youtube in mid-July, Team Taz (Cage/Hobbs/Starks) almost wins the tournament (with assists by Evans), but are upset by Jurassic Express when Jungle Boy pins Starks, allow them to be awarded the medals. This sets up a TNT title defense between Starks and Jungle Boy in a couple of weeks on Dynamite. Taz accuses Starks of acting too cocky as of late, hence why they lost the tournament.

Aug – Jungle Boy & PAC

During his defense against Jungle Boy, a PAC vignette comes on the tron, warning Starks that they have unfinished business and he will be back next week on Dynamite. The distraction almost costs him the match against Jungle Boy, but Starks managed to get a cheap win via low blow behind the ref’s back to save his title.

PAC returns, aiming to get even with Team Taz. At All Out, PAC defeats Ricky Starks for the TNT title, but the decision gets reversed after PAC refuses to release the Brutalizer. Ricky Starks attempts to get involved in Cage’s FTW title defense against Cody later on in the evening, but ends up costing Cage the title by accident.

On the opening segment of Dynamite, Starks loses the TNT belt to Orange Cassidy, due to being easy pickings as a result of Starks match with PAC. This leads to a segment on Dynamite where Taz berates Starks for his arrogant behaviour over the last several months costing Team Taz wins and Taz's prized FTW championship, reminding him that he is not the leader of Team Taz, and banishes him to Dark.

Sept-Oct – Cody & Hangman Page

Hangman Page, who had recently won the AEW championship from Omega in a grueling contest, manages to successfully defend against both Cage and Hobbs on back to back episodes of Dynamite, both of whom have been ranked for a title shot for a month. Starks, meanwhile is on Dark, and on an episode of the Waiting Room, making it clear that he has his sights set on bigger prizes – the same prize that Team Taz has been focused on all month – and that he’s calling his shot for Full Gear.

On Dynamite, Cody is trying to convince Hangman Page to give him a shot at the AEW title, with the aim to unify the FTW and AEW titles. Starks interrupts him, and says that since they are at 1-1 each this year, they should have one more match, with the FTW title on the line, to settle the score. And as they are both ranked, the winner gets a shot at the title at Full Gear. Cody accepts. Starks wins at the 2nd Anniversary show, and surprisingly, it is a clean victory. Starks goes on to Full Gear, but Page does beat him in a well fought bout. Starks walks out of the event still FTW champ, as he did not put the title on the line in that match.

Nov - Sammy Guevara; beginnings of a face turn

Ricky Starks cuts a promo how he’s been dealing with the present and the now of AEW over the last several months, and has been taking bad advice by the “ancient relics of extreme” since he got here – which causes Taz to take his glasses off – instead of listening to the people and focus on the future of AEW, and he’s going to be shifting focus and he knows the perfect guy to face.

Sammy Guevara - after winning the TNT title from PAC, who won it from OC - loses the title in quick fashion to Scorpio Sky, after Starks efforts to get Guevara’s attention pays off. Starks then cuts a promos saying this isn’t about titles, this is about seeing who it the future of this company. Calling Sammy the best member of Inner Circle - when he used to be a part of it - and himself the best member of Team Taz, they should have a match and set AEW on the right path forward. Starks wins the match between the two of them clean, and shakes hands with Guevara afterwards.

Dec – Will Hobbs & Team Taz

Hobbs sets his sights on the FTW title and calls out Starks after Starks claimed he was the best member of Team Taz. He says to prove it in a title defense at the next tv special. Hobbs wins the FTW title after Cage, Hook, Hirsch, Evans, and Taz screw over Ricky Starks on the December tv special, and proceed to excommunicate him from the group. Team Taz continue with the beatdowns on Starks in the backstage area over the next couple of weeks until Guevara comes to his aid. A partnership seems to have formed by Starks and Guevara, while MJF – who has been watching Dynamite from his palatial estate – tells his butler that he needs to make an Inner Circle jacket specifically for Ricky Starks and wants it ready for next week, as 2021 comes to a close.

That is awesome! I love everything about it! The idea of Starks being TNT champ, his feuds, forming an alliance with Sammy are ALL thing I would really love to see. Starks is just so good. And that tease at the end is great, too! Well done and thank you for playing! 🙂👍

Booking AEW Women's Division

I'm going to make an attempt to shore up AEW's weakest point- its women's division. They're on the way to improving, but some things need tweaking while other elements stay on the same path.

First off, some behind the scenes housekeeping. The whole division trains twice a week- once at Dustin Rhodes' wrestling school, and the other prior to Dark/Dynamite tapings with Dean Malenko. That includes the better in-ring talent like Shida and the NWA lot as they can help bring the Britt Bakers etc along.

I'm going to change the presentation of Dark. It's not going to be 15 or 16 squash matches over a 2 hour show, cutting it down to 1.5 hours, with a 50/50 split between the men and women. This allows the women to get more televised reps without sacrificing the quality of Dynamite. Less squash matches too, the bouts will run around the 10 minute mark often on Dark. Lower/midcard feuds will still occur on Dark, for both the men's and women's divisions.

After a few weeks of grinding to get the mechanical side of things up to scratch, we're going to have a promo on Dynamite from Britt Baker. She's going to do her version of a pipebomb (but a little less insider), talking about how the NWA crew are taking opportunities away from people like her, the first woman to get signed to AEW. This ties into the existing feud with Thunder Rosa. Rosa confronts her and they begin to fight. Rosa kicks ass initially before Rebel hits her from behind. This allows Britt to powerbomb Rosa through a ringside table. A No DQ match is booked for two weeks away on Dynamite. Rosa defeated Baker at New Year's Smash so the Doctor is looking for revenge. Yep, we've got a hyped women's match on Dynamite. And crucially, not a title match. That's important.

In the No DQ match, Baker surprises Rosa by getting very hardcore, beating and bloodying Rosa. Rosa is forced to dig deep to fight back. She puts Baker on a table in the ring and goes for a top rope move, but Rebel stops her. This allows Baker to get up. Britt hurls Rosa from the top rope through the ringside table (the one near Justin Roberts) for the biggest bump the ladies have done in AEW. Baker picks up the win and we are 1-1 in the Baker vs. Rosa feud. A Last Woman Standing match is booked between Baker and Rosa for AEW Revolution.

Now, we've still got the two title scenes to take care of. Going off Baker's anti-NWA promo, Shida kinda goes "oh yeah, Britt, you're right" and sets her sights on NWA champ Serena Deeb. Deeb fires back, saying that it's her and the NWA that have made women in AEW relevant, but she's been stuck on Dark and PPV pre-shows when she deserves the spotlight for the work that they've been putting in. A champion vs. champion match is set for a couple of weeks on Dynamite, Hikaru Shida vs. Serena Deeb. It's face vs. face but with a lot of tension, as both sides are looking for bragging rights. It's the main event of Dynamite, adding that gravitas. Britt Baker interferes, costing Deeb the match and giving AEW the shine. Also, it prevents a full fledged clean champion vs. champion match happening- you don't want to give away the huge match on TV, especially when Dynamite got the big Baker vs. Rosa No DQ match the week prior. Shida looks relieved but a little conflicted at getting the victory that way. The lights go out and Abadon makes her freaky entrance. That's the closing image on that week's Dynamite.

At AEW Revolution, we have 3 women's matches on the card:

AEW Women's Championship- Hikaru Shida vs. Abadon
NWA Women's Championship- Serena Deeb vs. Shanna
Last Women Standing- Britt Baker vs. Thunder Rosa


Why Shanna? I think she's underrated, and if nothing else, the DBZ cosplay stuff appeals to a different niche audience, it's eye catching.

All these matches make the main PPV card. On an 8 match card, it goes- NWA on 3rd, LWS on 5th, AEW on 7th (co-main event).

Deeb beats Shanna in a competitive 12-15 match. One of those where both look stronger than when they came in. Deeb gets the deserved PPV spotlight, and both ladies will follow this match up with more Dynamite appearances.

Last Women Standing- Rosa takes out Rebel by throwing her off the stage as Baker and Rebel make their entrance. This is truly one-on-one. Baker holds her own though once again. They battle into the stadium next to Daily's Place and we get a huge (probably pre-taped) spot where Britt throws Rosa out of the stands into a massive crash pad/pit ala the Stadium Stampede. DMD wins it, and gains some actual badass credibility to go along with her bitch character. Baker follows up this pivotal victory by setting her sights on NWA Champion Serena Deeb.

Shida vs. Abadon gets the big match treatment with elaborate entrances. I'm not a set designer but I feel like they could do something really special, horror-movie esque with Abadon. After a competitive NWA title match and an epic LWS, the AEW title match is going to be a little sizzle over steak. Not to undercut Shida or the AEW title by any means- the story is that Shida is still spooked by Abadon, who takes advantage of being in her head by beating her in max 8 minutes. With Shida being so dominant, this creates a new threat and challenge in Abadon. Shida is now in the position of the babyface giving chase, but to do so needs to overcome her fears, which she will attempt to do in a longer, more epic match at Double Or Nothing.

I don't know if AEW are heading in a direction anything like this, but I tried to realistically tie it into existing stuff. The only thing I took liberties with is the violence in the Baker vs. Rosa feud. I felt it was important to have a significant non-title women's feud, and a way to do that was to create huge moments in the Baker vs. Rosa feud that could go viral/be used in video packages. Also, AEW clearly want to build around Baker, but she's a little too comedic at times without the in-ring credibility to back it up. I'd use the spot in the LWS to write Rebel out of that alliance and maybe re-package her.

Baker beats Deeb for the NWA Women's Championship at Double Or Nothing. Shida beats Abadon for the AEW Women's Championship at DoN. We get Champion vs. Champion, Winner Take All at All Out, Baker vs. Shida. From tying these wrestlers together over an 8 month span, we've ideally created a bunch of stars, or at least elevated them enough to be positive contributions on AEW programming.

I tried to make the Good Brothers angle work, but it just doesn't have heat. They should have brought in two MMA guys or Austin Aries and Frank Mir to be Omega's teammates. This angle with the Impact invasion is niche-- it is the opposite of what they need out of a hot angle with the world heavyweight title. They need an angle that draws mainstream attention and sports viewers. They need people outside of the hardcore talking about AEW. The television audience doesn't know what any of this Bullet Club stuff is other than they are stealing NWO's act.

January 13
Q1: We open with the replay from the previous week from the main event and from the Omega promo.
Match 1: Allin vs Archer- Allin retains
Q2: Video package promoting Sting vs PAC airs.
Match 2: Shida, Swole and Chuck vs Bunny, Anna Jay and Butcher
Q3: Match 3: Daniels vs Sky- Sky progresses (Inner Circle tries to exploit a divide in SCU following the match)
Commentary inform us that Jericho vs Daniels is signed for Feb 3.
Match 4: Private Party and Adam Page vs Hardy and H2
Backstage, there is a brawl between Penelope Ford, Big Swole and Bunny that ends with Ford power-bombing Bunny through a catering table and then pouring a pitcher of punch on her.
Q4: A video package for Team Taz airs in which Taz says that Cage will face Rhyno next week in a cage for the FTW title.
Match 5: Miro open challenge: Miro vs Blade
Match 6: Jungle Boy vs Fenix- Fenix progresses
Q5: Sting announces that Omega’s number one contender for the February 3, three-hour episode will be Penta. There is confrontation in the ring with Omega, and then PAC, Penta and Fenix intercede.
Match 7: FTR vs The Acclaimed vs Young Bucks vs Hobbs and Cage (non-title match)
Q6: Match 7 continues. FTR pins a member of The Acclaimed.
Q7: Match 8: Cody vs Starks (with Mox watching at ringside).
Q8: Main Event: Sting vs PAC

January 20
Swole vs Bunny vs Ford
Sammy vs Sydal- Sydal progresses
OC vs Sabian- OC progresses
FTR are announced as the number one contenders to the tag titles. There is a face to face with the Bucks. The Good Brothers come out and attack FTR. The Bucks are friendly to them, but the Good Brothers turn on the Bucks.
TNT title match: Allin vs Kingston
Miro open challenge: Miro vs Luchasaurus
Cage vs Rhyno. This would become a new angle for Cage in which he wrestles old ECW elites until RVD comes in and beats him for the FTW belt (because of the rivalry between Taz and RVD).
Main event: Omega and Good Brothers vs Penta, Fenix and PAC

January 27
OC vs Fenix- Fenix progresses
Sky vs Sydal- Sky progresses
TNT title match: Allin vs Adam Page (with Hardy, PP and Silvers all ringside). In the middle of all of the chaos at ringside, the Good Brothers come out to add to the madness and attempt to steal the TNT title after the match.
Miro open challenge: Miro vs Pillman Jr.
4-corner, 4-team elimination Tennessee Titty Twister women’s tag match (4 women allowed in the ring at once, but their partners remain in the corners): Shida and Ford vs Bunny and Baker vs Ivelisse and Diamante vs Rosa and Swole
Main event: Cody, Mox, and Daniels vs Jericho, Starks and PAC
Post main event: Omega and the Good Brothers attack everyone, good and bad alike. Penta and Fenix come out to help PAC.

Feb 3 TVPPV (3 hours)
Flightweight world title match: Fenix vs Sky- Fenix wins
Heavyweight world title match: Omega vs Penta- Omega wins
TNT title match: Allin vs Sting- Sting wins the TNT title
Jericho vs Daniels- Jericho wins with the Lion Tamer. After, Daniels is drinking in the loss when Jericho slaps him. Daniels puts Jericho in a koji clutch, and Jericho taps (though the match is finished). This leads to match 2.
Mox vs Starks vs Cody vs PAC- PAC wins
Miro vs Archer- Miro continues to be undefeated
Shida vs Bunny vs Rosa- Rosa wins
Page vs Hardy- Hardy wins
Women’s battle royal: Tessa Blanchard is the first entrant and is the final elimination at the hands of Awesome Kong.
Tag title match (first to three falls): FTR vs Young Bucks- FTR win

February 10
Cage vs Tommy Dreamer
Miro open challenge: Miro vs Butcher
Sting is attacked, and Omega takes the TNT title.
Rosa and Kong vs Blanchard and Baker
The rematch between Jericho and Daniels is set for Feb 27 at Hard to Kill.

I didn’t read a lot of the shite before because it was mainly filled with nonsense so I apologise if this has been spoken about before but!!!.....
I’m new to Aew and possibly in the wrong place but can somebody tell me why the hell frankie kazarian isn’t tag team champion and showing the division how it’s done! He knows how to put a tag team match together! Watching the 8 man tag last week you could hugely see the gulf in class between him and Daniels and everybody else in the ring! Put the belts on the guys who know what they are doing and let them teach the green guys

FTR vs Jungle Boy and Marko

The match starts with Dax and Marko in the ring, tully immediately walks around the side and pulls jungle boy off the apron, the ref goes to JB’s corner to investigate, meanwhile Cash grabs a chair, puts it in the ring and they pillmanise Marko on the chair while ref isn’t looking. Ref turns around, calls off the match as Marko can’t continue, signals for medical help, FTR and tully leave ring and head down tunnel laughing to themselves while jungle boy is in ring holding Marko like Rocky holds apollo creed in Rocky 4.

Heels look ruthless and strong.
Babyface gets sympathy and motive and realises it will take somebody bigger to stand against FTR (I.e. Luchasaurus) in a rematch, and Marko is off TV for a while. Job fucking done.

I would have even had FTR grab a mic on the way out and say “Thank you, fuck you, goodbye”

have to admit, that is pretty good

edit> one thing i would say is, that would have made them super babyfaces to those that hate Marko - now even those guys hate them for selling to him. Are the the only true heels now? :D

Well I'm obviously very late but fuckin good work with this. I've always believed good writing can give literally anyone on the roster compelling segments, this pretty much proves it. They should hire your ass.

I know it hasn't happened yet but I'd be interested in seeing people's ideas for Dark Order + Hangman VS TH2 and Chaos Project to take that idea even further

HOW WOULD YOU GUYS BOOK THE DARK ORDER GOING FORWARD???

I love Evil Uno, he has to be the leader now surely?!

Only question is with John Silver and Alex Reynolds...

Id literally have them be cowboys with Hangman until (an only IF) it got boring and they 'fall back into line' with the dark order..

Keep them away from Tay and Jay too! Or those 4 become face very quick together! Id have Uno get Tay to beat down Anna Jay for being too nice (especially to her on Social Media) as an angle to get them a bit of heat. Then more when they take John and Alex bak maybe. That way they can all stay heel long term.

Colt's either IN or OUT. Not this half-way stuff he's doing now. His gimmick is a bit stale in fairness, he should go all-out heel for once. A proper serious-face heel, disgruntled with the business. Then he rejoins the Dark Order properly after leaving and lossing for a while.

Nobody?
For now, just do something different with all of them.

-Put Uno and Grayson in a mid-card tag team feud with FTR after they get done with Jurassic Express
-Continue to push Anna Jay and Tay Conti to get women's division wins and build on their kayfabe friendship
-Give Silver a bottom of the card feud with maybe Kip Sabian
-Keep the rest of them on DARK for now

Just keep them in a type of holding pattern for now then maybe down the line break them up at a time when it doesn't come off so badly with Brodie's passing.
