Backstage interview with The Rhodes Brothers.
Cody and Dustin are reunited in the ring tonight, but the main attraction is that this show is here to help those affected by gun violence. It is amazing to have this tag team dream match, but it is even better to give this check to a community that needs it.
How do they feel about facing the Young Bucks? Well there is no controlling the pace, but the Bucks are all #WestCoastOffense. But there is no expectations put on the Rhodes boys, but what happens when they go after a single body part? It’s new school versus old school, and that goes the Rhodes’ way. The old school is why there’s a new school. The #Brotherhood will powerslam the Bucks so hard, their souls leave their bodies. “You’re only as good as we allow you to be.”
One last question: How is Cody doing after that Fyter Fest chairshot? If he wasn’t 100%, he wouldn’t be here today. He could talk about Shawn Spears, but the satisfaction of beating an enemy is nothing compared to the friendly rivalry they have with the Bucks. The Brotherhood vows to be better than the Bucks, but will they be able to back it up?

Backstage interview with Kip Sabian.
Mr. Superbad is here, to make sure everyone knows his nickname’s pronunciation. But for now, Hangman Page is considered the favorite. Is he really the underdog? He knew this question was coming. People seem to think Page is that much better and Sabian is just filler. But Sabian isn’t here to sit back, cash checks and just be happy with being on the roster. He’s here to prove he’s not just the best in the UK, but in the world. Sabian is no underdog, he has a point to make. Then would winning tonight mean he’s in line for the world title? Yes, that would be the proper way. But he needs to get something off his chest.
Sabian has no animosity towards Hangman, seriously. But he does have a problem that Hangman being The Elite just gets him things. But Hangman talking the talk, he seems to forget who Sabian is. Hangman is too focused on CHris Jericho and All Out. But he’s going to see what Sabian can really do. He’ll be first in line for that belt. Hangman needs to bring his best, because he won’t be ready for Superbad otherwise.

Chris Jericho returns!
This was Y2J’s scheduled time to speak, though he already did plenty when he attacked Hangman Page. Jericho picks up the mic to say, “I’m looking at the blood of Hangman Page on my hand right here, right now. Can you see it?” Do they see the Hangman’s blood? Jericho has just wanted one thing from AEW: a thank you. Shut up, fans, he doesn’t mean you. Aw… But Jericho realized the “Jerksonville” fans don’t mean a thing anyway. Is that not good? What about “Jagoffville?” They want to boo Jericho!? Well fine, boo! “Let the entire White Trash Riviera here you boo Chris Jericho!”
But as he was saying, the thank you means nothing. Jericho will get his thank you one at a time as he beats every single wrestler in AEW. And he’ll start with Hangman. If Jericho wasn’t here, the fans wouldn’t be here! They’d be out panhandling or recycling bottles, but no they’re here tonight. AEW was started by Jericho, made legit by Jericho, and the TV deal (starting in October) was sealed by Jericho. This goes beyond thanks. This is something that bothered Jericho since Double or Nothing, when he found out a battle royal would determine one of the contenders. Of course Jericho beat Omega, but he watched that battle royal closely.
Was it gonna be the guy with no legs? Joey Janela with a cig stuck to his forehead? The Young Bucks’ cabana boy? No, they were all eliminated, and one man was left: Hangman. Fans cheer for Hangman but Jericho says Hangman is in fact one of the best wrestlers he’s seen in a long time. Fans like Hangman, right? But ever since then, Jericho has been obsessing over his match with Hangman. If Jericho beats Hangman, and he will, it is just another notch in his belt! He is the GOAT, right? Shut up! But if Jericho loses to Hangman, it will be the beginning of the end for AEW, and for Y2J. If Jericho loses, where does he go from there? So Jericho HAS to beat Hangman! He became obsessed with it!
And that’s why Jericho attacked tonight, leaving Hangman in the pool of his own blood. It is to show everyone to never trust Jericho. Jericho will prove at All Out, he is THE AEW World Champion. He will prove that without him, AEW wouldn’t exist. And all you fans wouldn’t even be here, huh? More importantly, Jericho will prove again that Hangman is “a little b*tch!” He encourages fans to cheer, but Hangman is here!! Hangman attacks Jericho for what he did earlier tonight! Referees and security rush the ring but Hangman decks them all! Then he goes at Jericho again! They brawl all over the ring but now the locker room hurries to keep this fight from happening. But Hangman busts through!
Jericho bails out of the ring and Daniels keeps him from fighting fans! Jericho goes around the outside and up the ram while Hangman is kept in the ring. Fans chant, “Thank You, Hangman!” as Jericho is herded to the back. Hangman is still seething, too, even with one good eye. Just how badly will Hangman and Jericho beat the hell out of each other when they go All Out?

Music plays, and the time has come! Mr. Khan is here to present the check AEW is giving to the Victim Assistance Advisory Council. Cody breaks down the numbers, but it’s $150,000 in all! Fans cheer this most of all! AEW wanted to help those affected, and this money will be responsibly sourced and distributed in the city of Jacksonville! “And I don’t know if we are still on the air, but I’ll say this: you can’t counter program what AEW is doing.” Maybe you can counter Cody, the Bucks or Brandi, but you can’t counter the “damn revolution that is All Elite Wrestling!!” Fans agree to that! So Cody has a question for everyone: when AEW hits TNT, are you coming with them? “YES!!”
Well Cody has no catchphrase, but Omega does. So Omega might be able to customize it to tonight. Cody hands the mic over to the Cleaner! Omega thanks Cody for that intro and thanks the fans for supporting this cause. Today was not just about making a statement with wrestling, but that they’ll do something for this community to honor the selflessness of the fans. But this is a conundrum. As much as Omega wants to bid adieu, this doesn’t seem like the day for that. So while Omega wants to say good-bye and good night, bang, no. Just the good bye and good night. Actually, let’s have fun since this is the end. It will be “boing.” No one ever got in trouble for bouncing around. So with that, Omega bids you adieu. Good bye, MWAH, and good, night, BOING!
Another AMAZING night for AEW! They’re practically at a 100% success rate. Again, not a bad match on the card. And all these matches got time to breathe. Which is actually a great bonus here, and why Fight for the Fallen ended up longer than the other AEW PPVs. All the winners felt right given the stories of the matches, so I can’t really complain about booking, either. The Librarians, Avalon and Bates, are obviously great Heel jobbers to put over Faces, but I feel like Bates VS Allie was better than Avalon VS Kiss. The women’s tag of Baker & Riho VS Priestly & Nakajima was really fun, really good, and with the hype for Priestly coming into AEW, she had to win to make it all worth it.
I was surprised that the Six Man Tag was scheduled for the Buy-In but ends up a main card match, but again that’s because the matches were all given plenty of time. It was brilliant work for MJF and Shawn Spears to not get along at all, but to also have Spears be the reason his team wins anyway. I think this gives us a rare Heel VS Heel rivalry for All Out and AEW TV, where fans just choose a side and go from there. That in itself will be something to make AEW stand out. I was surprised to see Brandi bring out Awesome Kong, but I probably shouldn’t have been. Brandi is morphing into the Heel wrestler/authority figure and is actually doing it rather well. And then the surprise of Aja Kong showing up, we better get Kong VS Kong on the road to a women’s champion.
Hangman Page VS Kip Sabian was really good, and they’re clearly pushing the story that Hangman will have the uphill battle. Especially with Jericho attacking him, very truly referencing how he attacked Tetsuya Naito with that mask and ambush. Jericho’s promo after and the brawl that happened were great for the story, and this AEW World Championship match is going to be something else. For that matter, Omega VS Cima was insane! I don’t know what fans were reacting to off camera in the middle, but who cares, the real attraction was the number of meteoras Omega took. Omega wins because at this point, he did have to. While he’d only had one match in AEW before, these events are all AEW has right now, and Omega needs momentum to face Moxley at All Out.
Tonight was clearly a tag team night, though. The Triple Threat Tag was the most given result of the night, since the Dark Order went after Best Friends at Double or Nothing, then sent a message at Fyter Fest. Even so, all three teams shined, so that’s all any fan can ask for. Dark Oder VS Best Friends at All Out will surely be a great match and either team could win at this point. SCU VS Lucha Brothers was amazing, and Lucha Bros win because they apparently want the Bucks to challenge them for the AAA tag titles again just to make a point to everyone. I feel like Lucha Bros should win that ladder match to retain the titles. Bucks VS Rhodes was an insane main event, and the only thing anyone could say is that it was almost midnight in Florida so fans were legit tired from how awesome the whole night was.
Given the challenge posed by Lucha Bros, the Bucks had to win. They also needed to win just on the virtue of the Rhodes not having teamed in a long time, and Dustin just getting up there in age. Then the closing section making it to air was a good call, it was so great to see this technically “behind the scenes” moment of just how much AEW is giving to this cause. Cody’s talk of “counter programming” is obviously aimed at WWE and the Evolve 10th Anniversary special also being tonight, but I’m not going to pass judgement. It is what it is, it’s not like TV networks don’t do the same with any given show or event. I’ll just say there are fans like myself crazy enough to want to watch it all in the same weekend.
My Score: 9.1/10

The Murderhawk Monster chases off The Fam because they know he wants his pound of flesh from Kingston! Jake the Snake is now keeping the peace between the many enemies of Kingston, and Archer is telling Pac to get on the same page as him. They both want the same thing, but will they all be patient enough to take the Mad King down together?
Miro w/ Kip Sabian & Penelope Ford VS Chuck Taylor w/ Orange Cassidy!
The Best Man and the Superbad couple undoubtedly injured Trent’s arm, which is why the Best Friends are down a man. But in an attempt to get even, the Kentucky Gentleman made a bet! If Chuck wins, Miro and friends leave him and Trent alone. But if Miro wins, Chuck becomes Miro’s “Young Boy,” aka lackey, from tonight until the Superbad Wedding at AEW Beach Break in February!

Backstage interview with #HardyParty.
Marq Quen, Isiah Kassidy and their new manager, Matt Hardy, are here, what does this mean for the relationship? Hardy speaks over Private Party to say that now that they’ve joined his Hardy Brand, things have been so much better. He lets them tell us what that means. Kassidy says a wise man once told them “It’s called show business, not friend business, for a reason.” Quen says ever since signing with AEW, their lives have been great. But now it’s so much better after signing with Matt! He is a tag team legend, an icon! It’d be pretty stupid if they stopped being a tag team now.
Actually, there is something Quen needs to get off his chest. Matt is taking 30%?! Yes, even from third party platforms, that was in the fine print. If they didn’t read that, that’s on them. It was a lesson they had to learn. But they’re so focused on money. Money will be nothing when they’re multi-millionaires! Hardy should know. Says the guy who is taking money from them! He’s like some, some… money-grubbing CARNY!
They’re calling him a carny!? How disrespectful! You guys were nobodies before him! He is the only one here that cares for them! The fans don’t care about them! Hardy had to learn that the hard way, on 9/15/2020, AEW All Out! No one here cares!! The sooner you get that, the better you’ll be. So just shut up, listen to him, and do what he tells you! Now go, this interview is over! Well, this escalated rather quickly. Will the party be over now that Hardy is in control?
Chris Jericho and the Inner Circle are here!
Le Champion, MJF, and the rest of the team head to the ring, united as one after all they’ve been through. Jericho takes a moment to revel in the fans singing Judas for him, we learn the Inner Circle’s 2021 New Year’s Resolutions after the break!
AEW returns and Jericho has the mic to say, “It’s the first time the entire Inner Circle has been in the ring together in 2021, and it’s gonna be a huge year for us!” 2020 was big, but this will be bigger. So they’re here to share their plans for the next 365 days! Who starts? Jake Hager starts by shouting, “CHAMPIONSHIPS! YEAH!” That is a good one. MJF says that was a great answer, and if he were to say off the top of his head, “just continuing to strengthen these bonds I have with all the men in this ring. And also fat people, they gotta go.” Sammy Guevara agrees, and Ortiz says he wants to perfect his grandmother’s sofrito recipe, and also “learning how to throw down some arroz con nueces.” MJF pretends to know what that is but Jericho knows the sofrito’s amazing.
Jericho wants to go out on a limb here and give his own resolutions. 2021 is the year Jericho and MJF will become AEW WORLD TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS! Whoa, wait. Santana and Ortiz say they were handpicked to be in the Inner Circle because they were THE tag team. So what’s…? Sammy has Santana and Ortiz stand down because Sammy knows what’s going on here. Sammy says Jericho is a tag team SLUT!! WHOA~! Sammy!?! What?! The writing’s on the wall! Jericho wants to team with MJF! He teamed with Hager! He teamed with Sammy! MJF says this is messed up. But Jericho was dappin’ it up with Snoop Dogg, are they going to be a tag team? Maybe…
MJF has this calm down. Sammy, you’re getting the trains off the tracks, let’s get them back on track. So much hostility. SHUT UP, MAX! This is the thing! Hager wants Sammy to let Jericho and MJF explain. Jericho says they’re all top level professionals, huge stars, tremendous athletes and even “sexy hooligans!” Any combination here could win the AEW World Tag Team Championships! But much like Big Jake and War Dog blew off some steam, Jericho and the others should do the same. For bragging rights, next week, live on Dynamite, for the first time-ever, a Triple Threat to decide who will be the OFFICIAL tag team of the Inner Circle! Whoa!
So Jericho says it’s him and MJF against Santana & Ortiz, and then Sammy says it’ll be him and Hager. CHAMPIONSHIPS, YEAH!! Sammy Hager? Good one, Sammy. Wait, what do you mean? Nevermind. MJF says we’re off rails and running short on time, so let’s all relax. At the end of the day, after their “teeny tiny exhibition match,” they’re all still family, they’re still the Inner Circle, and nothing will break them up. They are better than you, and you know it. Hands in! Santana asks why MJF’s hands are darker than his face. Don’t ruin the moment. But will it be Sammy Hager, the Proud ‘n’ Powerful, of #Y2MJF that will represent in the AEW Tag Team Division?
Backstage interview with The Dark Order.
After honoring the life of the late, great Mr. Brodie Lee, many are wondering what is next for the faction. Evil Uno says that night was very important for them and all of AEW. In the future, everything will be in his name. They must be better people, and that starts next week when Hangman Adam Page teams with them. And wouldn’t you know, Hangman was just off camera! Stu Grayson pulls Hangman in to join the group, and they serve up drinks. Now the Dark Order will interview Hangman! John Silver starts by saying they all just love him so much! Alex Reynolds takes over to apologize and explain that Silver still gets nervous around Hangman.
But the Dark Order wants to know: When will Hangman #JoinDarkOrder? C’mon, Adam! Is it next week, after their match? Well, after next week, he’ll let them know. Sweet! But Hangman’s totally in, right? Up top! Hangman didn’t go that far so he hears them say all this. Will that affect his decision?
AEW is going to have the first-ever Dynamite Awards! Hosted by Tony Schiavone! Go to aewawards.com to vote!
AEW looks back at how Darby Allin VS Brian Cage came to be.
Before forming Team Taz, Taz himself came to the Relentless underdog in hopes of mentoring the young wrestler in AEW. Taz has a lot of knowledge as one of the best from the 1990’s and early 2000’s. But Taz didn’t know how to talk to Darby, and took Darby’s rejection personally, and so Taz found himself someone who would listen. That someone was The Machine, Brian Cage! Cage wrecked everyone, but especially Darby Allin, in the Casino Ladder Match. Taz would then bestow upon Cage his most valued possession in THE FTW World Championship! Cage has the FTW mindset, and that is why he is holding the FTW title.
Then Team Taz would expand, adding Absolute Ricky Starks. This duo would beat down Darby at every turn, yet it was Darby who was getting what he wants. Cage tried to destroy Darby with body bags and thumbtacks, but Darby never says die. Darby kept fighting, even after being betrayed by “Powerhouse” Will Hobbs. But then, “IT’S STIIIIING!” Sting pointed to Darby and said, “Something feels really, really familiar about this place.” Team Taz tried to warn Stinger he’d get hurt, but Darby would return the favor by backing up the icon.
Team Taz have been holding back, but this feud isn’t 9 months in the making but 27 YEARS. Darby has been dealing with this kind of bullying his whole life, and now it comes to a head! Will the Relentless Face of TNT cause the Machine to break down?
Backstage interview with The Elite!
After the wild moment to end last week, “the band is back together!” Kenny Omega stands with the Young Bucks as Don Callis says of course they’re back together! Kenny’s two best friends, all these belts, it’s unbelievable! The Elite is ready to stir it up as a trio! But Callis says the Bucks should still have their own entrance, they have such a great song. That said, the Best Bout Machine heads out first!
Six Man Tag: The Elite w/ Don Callis VS ???
“And now, he has held the AEW World Title for 42 days. His victory over Rey Fenix on last week’s Dynamite was his 14th straight singles win. He now has an AEW high 36 victories. He has not teamed with The Elite in 144 days. He will become the first contracted talent to appear on Impact Wrestling Pay-Per-View at Hard to Kill. He is considered a hero by many in… NOOORTH CAROLINA! However, he is proud to be called a legend in his hometown of Winnipeg, Manatoba, Canada. He weighs 224 pounds. He is the All Elite Wrestling Wooooorld Champion…! KENNY! OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOMEEEEEEEGAAAAAA~!” The Sweepettes return to lead the way!
Omega walks out on stage with Callis, the pyro goes off, and we see that the opponents are Danny Limelight and The Varsity Blondes, Griff Garrison and Brian Pillman Jr. When these three tried to stop the Good Brothers from invading, they were swiftly dealt with, and Griff even took a superkick from Matt Jackson! Will the young and hungry trio be able to catch The Elite by surprise tonight?
Callis grabs the mic from Justin Roberts to take over from here. Tonight is too special to leave this in the hands of an amateur. As we all know, this is history tonight because the band is back together! “Courtesy of Kenny Omega and Don Callis, the dream match, the dream six man” is happening! So let him introduce these two very special people in Kenny’s life, and the WORLD TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS… and Omega’s best friends in the world… the GOOD BROTHERS~!! What?!? Doc Gallows and Karl Anderson are here again?! To be fair, they are world tag team champions, but for IMPACT, not AEW!
Dasha is there to get Tony Khan’s reaction, and the Bucks are there to also be very disappointed in Kenny. Callis says business is business, but best friends are forever. Well, Elite or not, will this powerful trio be just too sweet for the young hopefuls across the ring?
Six Man Tag: Kenny Omega & The Good Brothers VS Danny Limelight & The Varsity Blondes!
The trios sort out, but the former Bullet Club boys rush Limelight and the Blondes! The Good Brothers go after Griff and BPJ while Omega has Limelight in the ring! Fans boo but Omega stomps away while the Varsity Blondes are sent into railing! Omega drags Limelight up, whips him to a corner then runs in, only for Limelight to go up and over! Limelight runs back in, Omega puts him on the apron but Limelight enziguris back! Limelight slingshots and arm-drags then dropkicks! Limelight kips up, but Gallows gets in to CLOBBER him! But the Varsity Blondes get in to double dropkick Gallows! Gallows stays up, the Blondes run and they clothesline him out together!
Fans fire up while Gallows is furious! Griff and BPJ reach out, Limelight tags in BPJ. BPJ kicks and CHOPS Omega, wrenches and tags in Griff. The Blondes go after the arm with ax handles! Griff wrenches, tags BPJ back in and again they go after the arm! BPJ facelocks. Limelight tags in and KICKS Omega! Omega blocks the suplex, body shots back then ROCKS Limelight with forearms! Limelight mule kicks and whips, but Omega reverses and Gallows gets a cheap shot in! The ref reprimands but Omega runs to KOTARO KRUSHER! Tag to Anderson, and Anderson rains down rights on Limelight! Fans boo, Anderson blasts Griff off the apron then whips Limelight to a corner hard!
Anderson claws at Limelight’s face, fans rally and Omega talks trash. Anderson drags Limelight up and over as AEW goes picture in picture.
Anderson CHOPS Limelight, Gallows tags in, Omega gets a cheap shot in, and Gallows drags Limelight up to shove him back into the corner hard! Gallows throws heavy hands and ROCKS Limelight with an uppercut! Gallows soaks up the heat from the fans, stands on Limelight’s head, then lets off as the ref counts. Gallows drags Limelight back up, bumps him off buckles then waits for Limelight to get up, for a ROUNDHOUSE! Tag to Omega and Omega drags Limelight up to scoop and BACKBREAKER! Cover, TWO! Limelight lives but Omega drags him back up. Omega feeds Limelight to the Good Brothers’ boots! Tag to Anderson and Anderson snapmares Limelight into a chinlock.
Limelight endures and fans rally up as Anderson cranks harder on the hold. Limelight fights up, throws elbows but Anderson throws him down! Anderson claws at Limelight’s face, lets off as the ref reprimands, then tags in Omega. Anderson scoop slams Limelight, Gallows becomes a backpack and Omega walks over to Limelight, for Anderson to run and add on, THREE MAN SPLASH! Cover, the Good Brothers intercept but the Varsity Blondes still get in to break it! Gallows knocks BPJ and Griff out of the ring and Omega drags Limelight up as AEW returns to single picture.
Omega RAMS Limelight into a corner, RAMS him in again, then sits him up top. Omega CHOPS Limelight, then runs, but into a boot! Limelight walks the tightrope to avoid Omega, then springboard RANAS him down! Fans fire up and Limelight crawls, but Omega drags him away! Limelight enziguris but misses as Omega ducks! Omega says he’s too smart for that! Omega reels Limelight in, GERMAN SUPLEX, but Limelight lands on his feet! To hit the enziguri this time! Fans fire up as Limelight and Omega crawl, hot tags to BPJ and Anderson! BPJ springboard tackles Anderson! He hits Omega and Gallows for good measure!

Then Fenix and Penta brawl with the Good Brothers, Moxley on their side! Omega and Callis bail out, not caring about anyone but themselves! When will Moxley get his shot at revenge on Omega?
AEW presents the Dynamite premiere of The Waiting Room!
Rebel welcomes us back and introduces The Dentist, the Role Model and the face of the AEW Women’s Division, Britt Baker! Britt dances her way in and thanks Reba for that intro. Britt is so excited to have this Dynamite debut! Everyone, check under your seats for a huge surprise from her! GOT YOU! Never gets old. But let’s get serious. Tonight’s guest is huge! It’s Cody Rhodes! He’s so special, right? They want to give him a huge congratulations on his opportunity with TBS with The Go Big Show, airing Thursdays, and you’ll see some crazy stuff on that show. Probably the craziest thing is that there are some big name celebrity judges, and then Cody. No idea how he got that gig, but we’re all happy for him.
Before bringing Cody out, Britt wants to say one more thing. She can’t get this straight: Who is Cody’s guy? Sting? Shaq? Snoop? Make one good choice! Unlike that thing on his neck. Rebel’s talk show laugh is rough as always. But give it up for the American Nightmare, Cody Rhodes! Wow, Rebel even has sparklers for him. Cody walks in under the sparklers and the Snoop remix of his theme plays, per the contractual obligations of having Cody on the show. Okay let’s put these out… Cody gives Britt and Rebel a hug, Rebel gets a bit frisky, but Britt congratulates Cody on the announcement of his first child with Brandi. That kid is gonna have an action figure way before anyone else here but who’s counting? Britt says she’s just kidding. There are no fake friends here, just fake teeth.
Britt does want to ask Cody about himself, though. A huge year. Go Big Show, baby Rhodes, let’s talk about it. But wait! Another huge surprise that Britt just thought up right now. A surprise guest! Give it up for… JADE CARGILL! Jade walks in in her shiny new ring gear, and Britt asks if she always wears this just walking around. Jade says she’s “a badass bitch,” she does what she wants. Fair enough. And then she snatches the mic from Cody! Jade says Britt actually doesn’t, and Jade sure doesn’t, and certainly no one else in AEW gives a DAMN if he and Brandi are having a baby. Britt says it’s just nine months of no Brandi. And not to sound corny, Cody did Brandi a huge favor.
But Jade and Shaq are TIRED of waiting. “Where is my damn opponent?!” Brandi should be watching Jade dominate as a REAL bad ass mother. And if Brandi ever returns, Jade will beat dat ass. And then she pie faces Cody!! Uh oh~! Here’s RED VELVET! Who invited this little girl? Jade will get on Velvet’s level and squat down to look her in the eye, as she pushes her, too! Velvet SLAPS back! So Jade SLAPS Velvet! They start scrapping! Britt loves this but the women’s locker room rushes in to stop this! Cody as EVP tells Britt to stop recording this, but Velvet comes back for more! Cody shouts, “Pull the plug!” but cameras keep rolling!
Cody gets Velvet out of here, but then someone replays footage of Britt going after Thunder Rosa! Britt doesn’t mind, she likes rewatching it. But it’s THUNDER ROSA! We all know why Britt likes to have a talk show: Britt and her big nose like to get into other people’s business. But at some point, Britt has to get in the ring and do the work! Rosa talked with Tony Khan, and Khan said a match between them is a huge deal. There needs to be time and a big stage. Rosa says this will be settled the right way. That is why Britt gets to face Rosa on Dynamite, 2/3/21, BEACH BREAK! God has answered Rosa’s prayers and now she gets to beat Britt’s ass!
Britt freaks out and thought she wouldn’t have to face Rosa. But it’s happening! There’s no going back now, so that’s the end of the Waiting Room! Will Britt pray that Beach Break never happens? Or is there no more running from what she’s done to Rosa?
Jurassic Express VS FTR w/ Tully Blanchard!
Normally Luchasaurus would be by Jungle Boy’s side, but after Cash Wheeler & Dax Harwood got in his face, Marko Stunt couldn’t stand idly by! Will JB and Stunt make FTR #FeelTheRegret for making fun of Fun-Sized?
The teams sort out and Stunt starts against Cash. They circle, tie up, and Cash pops Stunt right up to put him in a corner.

AEW TNT Championship: Darby Allin VS Brian Cage w/ Team Taz!
Who can stop the Path of Cage? So far, no one has. But with Taz, Ricky Starks and even Son of Taz, Hook, in his corner, is it a shoe-in that Cage becomes the Two Belt Machine? Or will the Relentless underdog take Cage to his limits in this New Year’s Smash finale?
AEW returns as Darby makes his entrance and Taz joins commentary to enjoy this. The introductions are made, the TNT title is raised, and this grudge match a long time coming finally begins!
Darby rushes in and dropkicks the leg out then basement dropkicks Cage out! Darby keeps moving and he DIVES to send Cage into railing! He dribbles Cage off the railing, goes back into the ring and builds speed again, to DIVE! But into a SUPLEX! Cage shouts, “WHO BETTA?!” Starks fist-bumps Cage and Cage puts Darby back in the ring. Cage stalks Darby, circles around him then drags Darby up, but Darby SLAPS Cage! Cage CLOBBERS Darby! Cage drags Darby up, trophy lifts him, and then TOSSES him onto the timekeeper’s table! The table is splinters from that crash landing! The ref goes out to check on Darby, he’s somehow okay to continue, so Cage goes out to fetch him.
The ref tells Team Taz to stay back as Cage drags Darby up. Darby is bleeding, and Cage suplexes Darby up to make the blood rush there faster. Cage holds Darby up like that as he goes up the steel steps to the ramp, and then TOSSES Darby into the ring! Cage then dead lifts and SLAMS Darby with one hand!

The ref counts, Cage lets off at 4, and he drags Darby up. Darby flops down, fans rally even harder, and Cage sits Darby up for crossface forearms as AEW goes picture in picture!
Cage keeps clobbering Darby with forearms, then lets off as the ref wants to check on Darby. Darby is somehow still in this but Cage scuffs him with his boot.

Starks sneers and smirks as Cage bumps Darby off buckles and CHOPS him! Cage digs his boot into Darby’s good side, but the ref counts. Cage lets off at 4, rains down rights, trying to bust open the good side so Darby will have a full crimson mask. Cage stomps Darby, drags him back up, and then goes corner to corner as AEW returns to single picture. Cage runs in, but into a boot! Darby goes up and leaps, into a fireman’s carry and F5!! Cover, ONE?!?! Darby surprises Cage again and Team Taz is growing frustrated. Fans are thunderous for Darby as Cage yanks Darby right up to a POWERBOMB! And then ANOTHER BOMB! And ANOTHER! That last one was like a Kevin Nash Jackknife!

Taz is furious on commentary and shouts for Cage to whoop Darby’s ass! Cage drags Darby over to a corner, and dead lift SUPERPLEXES him! Cover, ONE!?!?! How is Darby doing this?! Cage is losing his cool, and he goes out to bring the steel steps around! The ref tells Cage to stop, but Cage positions the steps near the apron. Cage drags Darby to the apron and aims at the steps! Cage fireman’s carries but Darby fights out!
Darby dropkicks Cage but Cage holds ropes! Darby BITES the hands, Cage lets go and falls onto the steps! Cage is on the steel, Darby climbs up the corner, SUPER COFFIN DROP!! Both men are down on the floor and fans are thunderous again! A ring count starts, Taz is furious on commentary all over again, and somehow Darby stirs at 3.

Darby runs, springboards, but into a waistlock! Cage flips Darby around but Darby BITES Cage’s face!

Darby shoves Cage over and rains down fists on the back of Cage’s head! The ref backs Darby off but Darby comes back, only for Cage to BASEMENT FLAPJACK him! Darby flounders, Cage breaks free of the belt, but Darby runs in for CODE RED!! Cover, TWO!! Cage staggers up, Darby goes to a corner, Darby runs and shotgun dropkicks Cage into buckles! Cover, TWO, but Darby is right to the top rope for DOUBLE STOMPS!
Darby isn’t done, but Hook distracts the ref! Starks YANKS Darby down, but the lights go out! IT’S STIIIIING! Baseball bat shot and a SMACK for Starks! Cage KNEES Darby up top, climbs up and hauls Darby up for a fireman’s carry. Darby fights that off, for a SUPER CRUCIFIX DRIVER!! Cover, Darby wins!!

The Icon helped even the odds, and the underdog is still the champion! Will Hobbs hurries out to back up Taz, Hook and Cage, but the snow still falls! Will Team Taz continue to be left out in the cold so long as Sting is watching over Darby?
Another great episode for AEW, and a very good second part to New Year’s Smash! We had a really good opening of PAC VS Kingston with everyone else ringside, and I like that Pac since he’s been gone and needs these wins since AEW is about the records. Archer showing up makes a lot of sense, too, as he still has business with Kingston. But with both of them wanting after Kingston, there is surely going to be PAC VS Archer to see who gets first crack at Kingston going into a PPV like AEW Revolution, or maybe even just Beach Break on 2/3/21. Miro VS Chuck was a good match, but I figured Miro wins because the story of Chuck being his “butler” is more interesting and will surely be more entertaining.
I should’ve known from the moment Callis insisted on separate entrances that the Bucks wouldn’t be joining Omega. Of course, Nick Jackson also suffered a minor leg injury last week, so he wasn’t going to be in shape for any matches tonight. This was a good way of covering that up in kayfabe, even if it pushes the pace up on the story. If not for the injury, I would’ve thought they’d give us more time of Bucks and Omega being friends. Of course, the Bucks did get in at the very end of all the brawling between Moxley, Lucha Brothers, Omega and Good Brothers, so perhaps they aren’t that upset with Omega pulling this little swerve.
And while I don’t want “the band” breaking up after only just reuniting, I would love if AEW could be the gateway to a Triple Threat TRIPLE TAG TITLE match. Bucks are AEW World Tag champs, Lucha Brothers are still AAA World Tag champs, and the Good Brothers are currently Impact Wrestling World Tag champs, it would be insane if one of these legitimately great teams became TRIPLE tag champions. At the very least, it’d make sense if Lucha Brothers returned to Impact as they were only just there in 2018 to 2019 and were Impact tag champs just the once.
FTR VS Jungle Boy & Marko Stunt was very good, and it was an interesting twist for Stunt to low blow Dax before Tully cheated him out of a win. I wonder if FTR brings that up before giving us the rematch, but with Luchasaurus in with JB per the usual combination. Though I could see Stunt wanting to be back in, just in JB’s spot. This feud is definitely only extending to build tag contenders on the side while The Bucks are busy with the Omega story. The same goes for the Inner Circle having a Triple Threat Tag within their own ranks. That is going to be a great match, but now that Jericho and MJF have declared for the Tag Division, they’re definitely going to win and go on a run up the rankings.
Deeb VS Conti was a great match, but AEW and TNT still need to figure out how they can go picture in picture and NOT have to go to full commercial. Conti got that monkey flip to cover and then it goes away, I almost thought Deeb was going to win while we were on break. Deeb retains because for one, it’s the NWA title, it won’t change hands until it’s on an NWA program. Plus, Conti is still very young and so is her career, she will have plenty of time to build into a great champion. The Dark Order had a good segment with Hangman Page, but if they’re posing the proposition here, I have a feeling Hangman doesn’t #JoinDarkOrder.
The Waiting Room was alright as far as the talk show portion, as Britt literally reused material from Dark to mock Cody. But Jade Cargill getting in Cody’s face, then brawling with Velvet was a much better segment. As was Rosa calling out Britt and finally giving us the match between them for Beach Break. That match should be treated as an unofficial contender’s match, the winner moving on to challenge Hikaru Shida for the AEW Women’s World Championships. That probably means it’ll be Britt, but perhaps with help from Rebel.
And then the TNT Championship was a great match, especially once Cage tossed Darby through the table and Darby was bleeding. Darby proved his superhuman durability, and it was great for Sting to reinforce him against Team Taz. That tag match has to happen for AEW Revolution. Otherwise, what is Sting really doing here?
My Score: 9.4/10

Air Wolf and Angel Dorado are rolling, and there’s still all of 2021 ahead of them! Will the ice cold Martin brothers get some tag gold while they’re still young?
A very good Dark, only 12 matches and just over 90 minutes is much more manageable than those extra stuffed episodes with 15+ and another hour. There were also some slightly less unpredictable matches, such as Red Velvet VS Leva Bates. Both of them have been doing good work, but Velvet having a small part in the story of Jade Cargill, the Vicious Vixens and Brandi Rhodes means she needs the momentum as a proxy for Brandi. The main event of Top Flight and Chaos Project could’ve gone either way, but the younger team needed the momentum so it was great for them to win over the more experienced Luther and Serpentico. Top Flight using that boosted dropkick Cheeky Nandos is an interesting move, but I think if they coordinate it better, it should be the legal man whipping the other so that he can also be the one to cover as the opponent falls back.
On the other end of things, it was great to see Bear Country get a win through Dark, they’re a great team that can build up the already stacked tag division. The Dark Order had a very good night again, and that 10 Man was pretty congested. Cabana is meshing with the Dark Order more, and so I hope some part of the story originally intended with him is given television time. Not to move on too quickly from Mr. Brodie Lee, but if Uno and Stu can move up as leaders and then make Cabana a new right hand man, I think that’d be good for the group as things go forward.
Conti gets a good win over the incoming Marti Daniels, and Deeb gets the same off Tesha Price, but even without these matches, I’m pretty sure their title match is going to be very good with a lot of technical skill on display. Speaking of Price, who was her sidekick and why did she not get an entrance? That’s a bit weird when it wouldn’t have taken that much to add that to Dark’s runtime. Maybe something happened to the footage at the time and they couldn’t shoot it again? Maybe we’ll learn who the guy is next time. And I like that Avalon is building the story of his Pageant Provocation by snubbing Griff and acknowledging Johnson. No idea where this will lead Avalon but it seems like the journey will be fun.
