AEW Battle Of The Belts VIII (Wrestling Review) (10.21.2023)


Battle Of The Belts VIII

Memphis, Tennessee 

Oct. 21st, 2023



AEW International Title Match
Orange Cassidy (c) vs. John Silver (w/Alex Reynolds)

This was a fine match but even though this was a random throwaway it was clear Silver had no chance. Even as a random challenger it was just hard to believe there was even a slight chance. 

2 / 5

ROH World Television Title Match
Samoa Joe (c) vs. Tony Nese (w/Mark Sterling)


.5 / 5

AEW TBS Title Match
Kris Statlander (c) vs. Willow Nightingale

This was a fun hard hitting match. Kris is making her way back through the division and Willow taking a loss hurts but she doesn’t have much happening with her right now. 

3 / 5

AEW World Trios Title Match
Billy Gunn & The Acclaimed (Anthony Bowens & Max Caster) (c) vs. Angelo Parker, Daniel Garcia & Matt Menard (w/Anna Jay)

Not even looking at this as a credible title match this was just fun though. Garcias dancing is super over and Acclaimed and Gunn always get cheered. 

3 / 5
