Even Orange Cassidy is freaking out! Or the approximation of a Freshly Squeezed freak-out.

Fenix puts Trent in, climbs up again, and double jumps for a SPLASH onto knees! Trent hurries up as Fenix flounders. Trent aims, SEXY CHUCKIE KNEE!

The American Nightmare is here!

Cody ascends from below the stage and heads to the ring. Tony Schiavone meets him in the ring to discuss his return, and the ambush. The Butcher, the Blade and the Bunny are one thing, but there’s still the matter of MJF. Cody says his scar is a reminder of his failure. His failure to win the AEW World Championship, and under his self-imposed stipulation, Cody can no longer challenge for that title. But then last week, Cody was under attack from another new enemy, there was no one there to pick him up. His friends are all preoccupied. Dustin and the Bucks are in a blood feud with the Inner Circle. His wife, Brandi, is cutting the hair of women wrestlers. And his best friend, MJF, “kicked me square in the balls.”

Now to the Butcher, the Blade and the Bunny, aka Sutter, Williams and Allie. Cody knows their work, from Beyond Wrestling to Bar Wrestling. All they had to do was ask for a match. But he gets “the pomp and circumstance of wrestling,” just look at his wrestling. They can do this any time, any place, including tonight! Fans are on Cody’s side for that one! And Cody will say this. When they have that match, he’ll even let them pick his partner. But MJF says he’ll never wrestle Cody? That is too much of an absolute for Cody. Cody needs to wrestle MJF. MJF made a decision for him that wasn’t his right to make! Cody handpicked MJF when no one else wanted him. It was either he was too short, that he was too “hood rich” and that his favorite scarf was actually a fake, or that MJF does the worst Cross Rhodes going. “At least they’re botching it on two channels now.” Or maybe the fact that under the lights, MJF is just an nWo Chris Jericho.

But Cody looked past all that. He saw a young, angry, hungry star. Cody was not naive that MJF was a bad guy, but he was Cody’s bad guy. Cody will sweeten the deal. What will it take to get MJF to wrestle Cody? Cody will give up the keys to his Ford Black Ops, one of 300. MJF loves that truck, it can be his. Or how about his watch? Tony Khan bought it for Cody, but it can be MJF’s. Cody will go higher! His Red Bottom Louis Vuittons! Or maybe just some cold hard cash! Justin Roberts brings in a briefcase, and Cody reveals over $50 THOUSAND in real bills. Cody could give a Benjamin Franklin to someone right now. The young gentleman right in the front row, it’s yours. But the rest, that can be MJF’s.

Cody still feels MJF is the future of this business. But education is the passport, so Cody will educate MJF, lacerate him. MJF just needs to name a price! We’re all waiting! “Let’s do this!!” Cody waits for a few moments, but takes his leave. The prizes are left in the ring, but will MJF have a response?

 

Backstage interview with Joey Janela.

The Bad Boy accepts the wild open challenge made by Jon Moxley, but why? “Quite frankly, I’ve got nowhere to sleep tonight. A hospital bed seems quite comfortable.” But jokes aside, Janela wants to make a name for himself! He was one of the first to sign with AEW, yet he’s somehow on the back burner. Moxley, remember the Fyter Fest Unsanctioned Match they went through? “This time, it’s different!” It’ll count for this one. The lights are on, but no one is home. Moxley might have to actually kill Janela. But then Moxley shows up! All he can say is, “Kids.” Moxley heads out, but in a match of two wild cards, who will be walking out of tonight’s main event under their own power?

 

Someone visits the Dark Order website.

This young man types angrily. “I hate all these people.” “I am a human being and they treat me like I am NOTHING!!” He submits his application and…

Evil Uno asks the man, “Are you sure you’re ready?” He says yes. “To lose it all?” Yes. “To sacrifice it all?” Yes! What is his motive for joining? “Revenge.” Then you are ready. Don the mask and be one of them. And then, the man from the subway, who was bullied and had his glasses stepped on. He is asked to look Evil Uno in the eyes. Is he one with the Dark Order? Yes… Will he disown his family for the Dark Order? Yes… Then what is his motive for joining? He just wanted friends…. The young man cries, but that seems to be the wrong response. Stu Grayson is given his orders. He ATTACKS the young man, and the Creepers claw at him! They are everywhere, but they show no mercy.

 

Nyla Rose VS Leva Bates w/ Peter Avalon!

The Native Beast demands respect, and will take it by force if she must. Shanna was her victim last week in a Chicago meet ‘n’ greet. Will Librarian Leva Bates be used to redefine the word “victimized”?

The bell rings and Nyla BOOTS Bates down! Fans fire up as Nyla drags Bates up for knees and a suplex. Nyla hangs Bates out to dry, then goes up top, for a GUILLOTINE KNEE! Fans enjoy the ferocity as Nyla drags Bates up again. Nyla has Bates in position but Peter Avalon gets in! Avalon knows he can’t hit Nyla or it’ll disqualify Bates, so he shushes Nyla instead! Nyla lets Bates go to go after Avalon’s finger! Bates grabs her book and SMACKS Nyla on the back! But Nyla doesn’t flinch! If anything, Nyla is furious! She grabs Bates, but Avalon climbs up. Avalon leaps, but he’s caught! DOUBLE CHOKE SLAM! Nyla drags Bates up and into the BEAST BOMB! Cover, Nyla wins!

Winner: Nyla Rose, by pinfall

The rampage continues, but Nyla isn’t done! She drags Bates up as she vows to get that AEW Women’s Championship. Bates gets another BEAST BOMB! Fans start to boo, but who is this climbing up? It’s SHANNA! She hits a crossbody on Nyla! Shanna fires off forearms and chops, but Nyla shoves her. Shanna dodges to keep firing off strikes! Shanna hits a SUPER PUNCH! Then she runs, but into a scoop! POWERSLAM! Nyla looms over Shanna before going out to fetch a TABLE! Nyla puts the table in the ring, sets it up, and looks to recreate the Chicago incident! Nyla drags Shanna over, the ref warns Nyla not to, and Nyla reconsiders. To go after the REF!! The referee gets the BEAST BOMB through the table!!

Britt Baker watches from the crowd in shock as Nyla still gives Shanna a Beast Bomb, onto the ref! The Native Beast has gone wild, but takes her leave as the rest of the AEW officiating staff come out to help Shanna and their fellow referee. What will the consequences be for the Native Beast’s brutality?

 

Le Champion is here!

Chris Jericho heads to the ring, with Jake Hager in tow. Jericho has a Little Bit of the Bubbly and Hager has a clipboard. Jericho gets a mic to say that Le Champion is in Champaign! Wait, don’t get too excited, it’s not like anyone from here ever made a damn thing of themselves. Only losers come out of Champaign. No one from here has been as successful as Jericho. Fans chant for “Tony Khan!” because he was in fact born here. Jericho doesn’t know who that is. But speaking off a success, 12 THOUSAND bottles of the Bubbly sold the first week! Because everything Jericho touches turns to gold. Get your own at the official website, just in time for the holidays.

Speaking of holidays, the “charlatans” of AEW told Jericho that he is contractually obligated to have one more match in the year 2019. The last Dynamite of the year, 12/18/19, Jericho must have one more match. But the thing is, Le Champion has the option to choose his opponent. So what Jericho did is put together a little list. Fans love the sound of that! “Get out of 2016.” This is not THAT list, it is “The Lexicon of Le Champion.” Fans cheer for “Lexicon! Lexicon!” And on said lexicon is those he refuses to wrestle this year. At the very top, Jon Moxley. Fans boo. Second is Cody, but that’s because he can’t.

Then there’s the Young Bucks, Papa Buck, Uncle Buck, Buck Owens, Moxley again, Hangman Page, Diamond Dallas Page, Paige, Moxley again, Scorpio Sky, 2 Cool Scorpio, all the members of The Scorpions rock band, Moxley, Michael Nakazawa, Kenny Omega, Kenny Ortega, Kenny Shields, Kenny Chesney, Kenny from South Park, Moxley yet again, that chubby guy with the popcorn in the fifth row, the ugly guy with the glasses in the third row, Moxley again, Darby Allin, Rick Allen, Allen Jones, Moxley, Evil Uno, Angry Dos, Hateful Tres, MOXLEY, and Marty- Wait, someone is coming out! It’s the Jurassic Express! Jungle Boy is on Luchasaurus’ shoulders while Marko Stunt is out in front! They all join Jericho in the ring, because none of them were on the Lexicon.

Marko gets a mic and hands it to Luchasaurus, but Jericho wants them to slow down. Jericho was about to finish the Lexicon, because next up was any and all dinosaurs and small children. Sorry. Luchasaurus growls, but then says, “You think that’s how I sound?” Didn’t think he could talk? Jericho probably doesn’t realize Luchasaurus has a Masters Degree in Medieval History. Luchasaurus lists off names, but it doesn’t surprise him that Jericho put dinosaurs on the Lexicon, “we’ve been marginalized for 65 millions years!” As far as Marko goes, yeah he’s small for his age. But he’s more man than Jericho will ever be! Fans are on Marko’s side, too. Jericho says Marko is small for any age. And if it’s not these two, then is it really… him? Jungle Boy is the last one left! And fans are on his side, too!

Jericho asks JB if he has what it takes to face Le Champion. “You haven’t even won a match, boy!” And he doesn’t even talk! The Hollywood golden boy, Jack Perry! Everyone loves JB, so why  not. Jericho wants JB to understand this: “I think you’re a piece of sh*t.” And JB won’t even last 10 minutes with Y2J! Can he understand with his no tongue and no brain? JB takes the mic away from Jericho! And JB says he can last 10 minutes with Jericho. He’ll even kick the old man’s ass! Then a brawl breaks out! Jungle Boy dropkicks Jericho out! Hager gets away from the Tail Whip, and the Inner Circle throws a tantrum! Jericho throw things, and tells Jungle Boy to wait and see what happens on December 18th! We have two weeks to go, will they be the last weeks Le Champion is on top?

 

BREAKING NEWS!

In regards to what Nyla Rose did to Leva Bates, Shanna and the officiating referee after her match, Nyla Rose is suspended from in-ring competition until further notice! Will this only further her violent temperament?

 

Kris Statlander VS Hikaru Shida!

The referee warns Shida, but Shida simply stands the chair up. This is business as usual, because Shida runs to use the chair to launch!

Cover, TWO! Kris drags Shida up but Shida fights back. Fans rally as Shida rocks Kris and suplexes. Kris blocks, fights back, but Shida kicks low.

The #1 Contender loses to the Greatest Alien! But oh no, the lights go out! A gong sounds… “There are 8 million ways to die. She’s one.” Yes, Awesome Kong and Brandi Rhodes are here! They head down the ramp and Brandi has a mic. “People often loathe what they can’t understand, because it scares them.” People have tried to explain what Kong and Brandi are doing, and been asking, “Who the hell do they think they are?” Brandi is going to shed some light on the subject. She and Kong get in the ring but Kris stands her ground. Brandi and Kong are the Nightmare Collective. They do the jobs no one wants to do, and in the way they see fit, no questions asked. Brandi is not here for Kris, yet she’s about to get up in Brandi’s business. This is a rather interesting situation, and an opportunity for Kris.

The Collective is part of a grander family, and families aim to grow. So here and now, Kris can be the first. Pledge to the Nightmare Collective and you will be taken care of. Fans don’t want Kris to do it, but Brandi wants an answer. Kris’s response seems to be a no, but Awesome Kong gets in her face. Someone else wants to pledge? Who is this in the front row? A female fan? She seems to be a regular, according to commentary. Brandi allows this mystery woman to join, and she offers up some hair. Kris and Shida get away in the meantime, and the hair is taken. Brandi pats the woman on the head, but more hair is taken.

AEW goes picture in picture as the cutting of hair goes to the extreme. The new pledge seems fine with that, and Brandi asks for an electric shaver. One is presented, and they buzz this woman’s hair. So much hair is taken! But the pledge is thankful to be part of the Collective. Who is this woman? What role will she serve in this “family”?

Janela gets to a corner but Moxley runs in. Janela goes up and over, things speed up and Janela dodges to elbow Moxley down! Janela soaks up the cheers and jeers but Moxley is up. Janela chops but it doesn’t make Moxley flinch. Moxley CHOPS and Janela is stinging! Janela CHOPS and Moxley feels that one. Moxley CHOPS again, Janela CHOPS, it’s a CHOP fight! Until Moxley headbutts!

Janela staggers but Moxley corner clotheslines hard! Moxley whips, Janela holds ropes and boots back. Janela sends Moxley out to the ramp, then climbs up top to LEAP! The ax handles hit and Moxley tumbles away. Fans are divided as Janela drags Moxley around. Moxley reverses the whips, Janela rebounds off ropes and Moxley LARIATS! Moxley talks to the camera as AEW goes picture in picture.

The referee tells Moxley to step back while he checks on Janela. Moxley puts Janela in the ring and kicks him around. Cover, TWO, but Moxley drops an elbow! Cover, TWO! Moxley digs a knee in as he pulls Janela’s arms back. Moxley grinds Janela down, but Janela fights his way up. Moxley just STOMPS Janela back down! Moxley stomps Janela in the stomach, then ties up the legs for a Queen Angelito Stretch! Janela endures as Moxley pulls him back. Janela bites Moxley’s fingers! Moxley lets the legs free and Janela gets away. Moxley runs in but Janela put shim on the apron. Moxley tumbles down and around, and Janela ax handles him down. Moxley rams Janela back, then CHOPS! Moxley whips but Janela reverses, sending Moxley into railing!

AEW returns to single picture as Janela brings Moxley back towards the ramp. Moxley gets in the ring and Janela climbs in, but Moxley kicks low. Moxley X-Plexes Janela down! Cover, TWO! Moxley tries again, ONE! He tries a third time, TWO! Moxley drags Janela up and back tot he ramp. The ref reprimands Moxley but Moxley underhooks and butterfly suplexes, but Janela sips out!

Janela puts Moxley back in, climbs back up, but Moxley stops him with forearms. Moxley climbs up, underhooks, but Janela fights free! Janela adjusts, and SUPER ROLLING POWERBOMBS Moxley down! Cover, TWO!!

Fans fire up as Moxley and Janela get back up. They brawl with big forearms, Moxley knees over and over, then runs. Janela throws a big forearm! Moxley rebounds, misses, rolling elbow from Janela! Janela runs into a kick, Moxley runs into a SUPERKICK! Moxley LARIATS back! But Janela escapes Paradigm Shift for a SNAP GERMAN into buckles! Fans rally as Moxley goes out by the timekeeper’s table. But Janela is up top and LEAPS! They both go crashing through the table!! Janela hurries to get Moxley back in as fans lose their minds. Janela is up top again, MACHO ELBOW! Cover, TWO!?! Moxley survives and Janela can’t believe it!

Fans duel as Janela goes up top again. Moxley is up on the apron and goes after Janela. Moxley climbs up, Janela fights back, and the two brawl up top. Moxley gets the underhooks, SUPER PARADIGM SHIFT! Just like he did to Darby Allin! But this isn’t enough, Moxley hits DEATH RIDER!! Cover, Moxley wins!!

Winner: Jon Moxley, by pinfall

The maniac does it again! Undefeated in AEW, it’s why Moxley is the true #1 contender! But Le Champion comes out to interrupt the celebrations, stealing Moxley’s entrance style! Jericho and the Inner Circle are coming down from the top of the stairs among the fans. Moxley doesn’t care about numbers, he wants them to come down and fight. The Inner Circle keeps their eyes on Moxley as Jericho holds up his title. The Lexicon of Le Champion already named Moxley multiple times, but will Jericho be able to keep Moxley away in the New Year?

 


 

My Thoughts:

A pretty great episode for Dynamite, but I really feel like the jabs taken at WWE are getting to be annoying. It is one thing if fans want to say things about how AEW compares to WWE, or more specifically NXT, but fans who want to choose sides will choose sides and while it isn’t really necessary, it’s their prerogative. And while I get that this is a competition between AEW and WWE, they don’t need to keep doing this kind of stuff. It is one thing when a company pokes fun at WWE occasionally, but it seems like AEW does it every possible chance they can, to where it’s at least once a week. In a vacuum, Cody’s line about the botched Cross Rhodes being a jab at Damien Priest’s “Reckoning,” was good since Priest really doesn’t do it very well. But when you have this on top of multiple references to “that company” and a commercial outright quoting groups saying “AEW [insert synonym for “beats”] NXT,” it is just getting tiresome and petty. But this topic could be, and probably has been, an article all itself so I’ll just leave it at that.

Speaking of Cody, I really liked his challenge back to MJF, offering up all of that stuff (in kayfabe) to the Dynamite Diamond Ring bearer and shoot giving that kid a $100 bill. I still don’t get where Allie and her new trio factor in, other than they have their own issues with Cody and the Nightmare Family. I feel it still could’ve waited until some of the Cody VS MJF stuff was resolved, it feels cluttered like Spider-Man 3. But I also do appreciate that Cody makes reference to all of his Elite friends not being there for him because of their stories, that at least is a logical tie-in to everything else. I assume Cody and QT lose, but with QT taking the pin.

I was surprised the Six Man Tag was the opener but it was awesome! Dustin and the Bucks keep things going between The Elite and the Inner Circle, and it was great that The Elite win. Next week’s Texas Street Fight will be a great continuation for the Bucks VS PNP specifically, too. Fenix VS Trent was a great match, and one thing from this AEW showed was that even the post-match picture-in-picture is something to pay attention to. Pentagon VS Daniels was also a great match, and both Lucha Brothers winning tonight is great, but I’m curious if they’ll ever be forced to face each other in singles competition if it means one gets an AEW World Championship match.

Statlander VS Shida was a great match, and it was a great surprise for Statlander to win! It makes it less obvious who will be facing Riho before the year is over. I almost thought Statlander was going to join this “Nightmare Collective,” but seems not. I didn’t really get what is going on with that, but the “fan” pledging to the group is a bit Serena Deeb joining the Straight Edge Society. Chances are not everyone remembers that, but I do and that’s what this felt like. Nyla Rose did great tonight as the other monster Heel in AEW. Britt Baker was ringside but it seems it was just to recreate her shocked reaction from NXT WarGames. In a vacuum, a great reference for AEW to make, but back to my earlier point, probably a bit random and unnecessary. Nyla being “suspended” does help clear up the last few weeks in 2019 and could help Nyla make a surprise return in 2020 just as a new champion is crowned.

Once again, Jericho’s brand of comedy is amazing. His new “Lexicon of Le Champion” was very “1001 holds ARMBAR” from back in the day, with how Moxley was on there over and over. Luchasaurus and all of the Jurassic Express getting to be part of a promo was great, too. As much as we would’ve loved to see Luchasaurus or Stunt going for the title, Luchasaurus VS Hager has to be first. Jungle Boy getting a match with Jericho to end the year will be great, but we know Jericho wins. GREAT stuff from Moxley and Janela, even in a normal match. The timekeeper table spot was great, and the tease of a ramp spot was good. Naturally Moxley wins, and naturally Jericho copies Moxley with the ending moments. Jungle Boy may be getting the last match of 2019, but Moxley has to be the first title match in 2020.

My Score: 9.1/10

The Inner Circle rolls into Daily’s Place!

Y2J, Big Hurt, the Spanish God and the Proud ‘n’ Powerful are returning to AEW in style! But with The Pinnacle somewhere in the building and Mike Tyson expected to return, who’s getting taken out first?!

 

Hangman Page VS Max Caster w/ Anthony Bowens!

Did the Anxious Millennial Cowboy hear Platinum’s new single on AEW Dark last night? Would it change what Hangman’s about to do to Max if it did? Or maybe Max’s improv rap right here will rile him up! “Hangman, you a changed man. Used to be a star, now you fadin’! Platinum, the flyest on the air, catch you slippin’ like Joe Biden on the stairs! So check the thug process. I’m dancin’ with the devil like I’m Lil’ Nas X! And you a one trick pony! Treat me like a breathalyzer and bl-” WHOA~! Bowens stops Caster there, that is a step too far. You can’t say that on TNT, Max! But either way, The Acclaimed have arrived! But then Hangman BOOTS Bowens to get him out of the ring!

Hangman fires off on Caster, the bell rings and Hangman rings Caster’s bell! He bumps Caster off buckles over and over, and over and over, then stops to stomp a mudhole! The ref counts, Hangman lets off, and Hangman walks it dry. Hangman drags Caster up, CHOPS him back to the corner, and then whips him to ropes. Hangman CLOBBERS Caster at the ropes, suplexes but Caster slips out! Caster shoves, Hangman dodges and scoops to FALL AWAY SLAM! Hangman kips up, fans fire up, and Hangman snap suplexes Caster after all! Cover, ONE!! Caster surprises Hangman but he keeps his cool as fans rally up.

Hangman CHOPS Caster to a corner, CHOPS him again, but Caster turns things around to fire off forearms! Hangman shoves Caster to BOOT him down! Hangman drags Caster up, wrenches, hits an elbow breaker then wrings Caster to stomp him down! Then he drops a BIG senton! Cover, TWO! Hangman smirks as Caster bails out and fans rally up. Bowens checks on Caster, Hangman heads over but Caster drags him out. Hangman counter punches then RAMS Caster into railing! Hangman puts Caster in, Bowens gets in Hangman’s face, but Hangman lets him be. Caster dropkicks Hangman as he enters! Caster stomps away at the ropes, catches his breath, then stomps him more!

Caster CLUBS Hangman, whips but Hangman reverses to send Caster out of the ring! Hangman runs to TRIANGLE LARIAT Caster down! And then PLANCHAS! Direct hit and down goes Caster! Hangman drags Caster up, the ref counts but Hangman CHOPS Caster! Hangman refreshes the count, whips Caster but Caster reverses to send Hangman into railing! Caster runs in but is sent onto the railing! Caster’s gonna be rapping in a higher octave! Hangman then climbs the other railing to leap and LARIAT Caster down! Bowens gets in Hangman’s face again, but Hangman shrugs him off. Hangman gets Bowens’ boombox, tosses it aside, and puts Caster in the ring.

Hangman drags Caster to the corner but Bowens threatens him with the boombox! Caster YANKS Hangman into the post! The ref is busy with Caster and Bowens RAMS Hangman into railing! Bowens puts Hangman in, Caster WRINGS him out, and then Caster throws the arm into the mat. Caster drops knees on the arm, covers, TWO! Fans rally and jeer Caster, and Hangman CHOPS! Caster CLUBS the bad arm, drags Hangman down and has a hammerlock crossface! Fans rally as Hangman endures, and Hangman fights up to arm-drag free! Caster returns but Hangman DECKS him! And again! Hangman dodges to SPINEBUSTER Caster down!

Fans fire up as Caster goes to a corner. Hangman goes corner to corner to clothesline! Hangman keeps going, Caster blocks the suplex and elbows Hangman. Caster blocks the boot, too, spins Hangman but Hangman catches Caster for the EXPLODER! Cover, TWO! Both men are down but fans fire up as Caster goes to the apron. Hangman shakes the bad arm out, goes to the apron, drags Caster up, and Alabama lifts! Caster fights for his life, gets free and BOOTS! Hangman forearms, Caster forearms back and they brawl on the edge! Caster CLUBS the bad arm, but runs into an APRON BACK SUPLEX! Fans fire up, Hangman dumps Caster down, and he goes to the apron.

Hangman climbs a corner, but Bowens is there to distract him! Caster gets in to LEAP up, steady himself, and still SUPERPLEX Hangman down! Then he gets the arm, SHANKLY GATES! Hangman endures, crawls his way forward, but Caster sits deep on the hold! Hangman gets the ropebreak with a finger! The ref counts, Caster holds on until 4! Fans rally for Hangman but Caster climbs up top. SPRINBOARD, into a LARIAT! The fans fire up, Hangman Alabama lifts, for- No! Bowens slides the boombox in! The ref obviously sees that, and Hangman picks the boombox up. The ref confiscates it, but Bowens gets Caster his chain!

Caster wraps his fist, Hangman storms over, PLATINUM PUNCH!! Cover, TWO?!?! Caster is shocked but the fans are thunderous! Caster hurries up top, takes aim, MIC DROP FLOPS!

Hangman reloads and aims again, BUCKSHOT! Cover, Hangman wins!

Winner: Hangman Page, by pinfall

The Cowboy secures that number one spot in the rankings! And of course, he toasts with some nearby fellow wrestlers! Will Hangman be saying cheers to a championship opportunity soon enough?

 

Tony Schiavone is in the ring.

AEW has great tag teams all around, but here is one of the great teams and the #1 contenders to the AEW World Tag Team Championships, DEATH TRIANGLE! PAC and Rey Fenix won the opportunity in the AEW Revolution Tag Team Battle Royal, but they and Penta El Zero Miedo all stand together with Schiavone. Their shot at the titles are coming, next week on Dynamite! They finally get their shots, but wait! The Best Friends show up? Orange Cassidy, Chuck Taylor and #JustTrent, with the honorary Best Friend, Kris Statlander, walk out on stage, and Cassidy gets the mic! “Y’know… It’s really nice to see all three of you together in the ring again.”

Footage plays, and it turns out to be a highlight reel of the history between these two trios! Revolution 2020 was when Death Triangle brutalized Cassidy after PAC beat him in a 1v1 match. Then on Dynamite from 5/13/2020 was when Fenix Ryder Kicks Cassidy down just because he could! Chuck says that it may have been awhile, but they still remember! Fenix laughs! These guys are crazy! Penta says it’s crazy how they’ve hold onto those moments! Pac says everyone should relax, because he understands why the Best Friend  are here. They see the writing on the wall, and want a shot at the NEW AEW World Tag Team Champions already! Well they’ve got a lot of work to do because they are FAR from worthy! So jog on and get out of here!

Oh, well, alright. Trent says he was hurt, and now Best Friends are back of the line. They’ll work their way back up, because that’s not a problem when you’re the team with more wins than anyone in this company! But anyway, Pac and Triangle can calm down. The Best Friends are just here to give them a heads up. “The boys are back in town!” Oh, and their new alien friend. Fans fire up as the four put hands in, will the reunited Best Friends be out of this world?

 

Mike Tyson talks with Coach Urban Meyer.

Is Iron Mike giving or getting pointers on how to handle business?

 

The Inner Circle heads to the ring!

Fans again get to sing Judas for Jericho as he and the boys return officially, even though we saw them get payback on The Pinnacle last week. Jericho gets the mic first, and he says Jacksonville sounds great tonight! The Inner Circle has a lot to say after the break! Y2J knows his TV, and AEW does go to commercial!

AEW returns, fans chant for Inner Circle and Jericho says they ARE the Inner Circle, and they are Back in Black, baby! “And it was only one short month ago that we were in this ring and given the beatdown of a lifetime by the Pineapple.” Sammy whispers a correction to Jericho, The Pinnacle. And that beatdown taught them a lot. It gave them hospital stays, it gave them stitches, but it gave them a wake-up call. It revealed to them that they’d made a lot of bad decisions over the last six months, that hurt and insulted a lot of people. For that, Jericho apologizes to those people and to the fans.

But all those decisions were on MJF, aka “My Jerkoff Friend.” And My Jerkoff Friend says he outsmarted the Inner Circle, mostly because he’s smarter than Jericho. And that’s true, Jericho isn’t the smartest in a few areas. High school chemistry, terrible. His teacher even asked after a second failed test, “Are you on dope?” An exact quote! Jericho wasn’t, he just wasn’t good in Chemistry. But who is? What Jericho is smart in is pro-wrestling! That is why he brought My Jerkoff Friend into the Inner circle. Not to take him under his wing, but to keep him under his thumb.

Jericho knows how dangerous My Jerkoff Friend is and how talented he is, and how much personality and potential he has. Jericho wanted to use him for all of that, and suck the life out of him into the Inner Circle. They had it all perfectly planned, and knew that MJF would eventually show his true colors. They were ready to kick MJF’s ass, but they didn’t think he’d be a step ahead. They got outsmarted by a man who can do everything except for put on a spray tan. Last week, MJF was oranger than Cassidy and had more streaks than that toilet bowl Jericho shoved his face into! Jericho can’t wait to swirly him again! Fans chant “Swirly! Swirly!”

MJF is only 25 years old! When Jericho was 25, he was still having wet dreams! But MJF at 25 is at the pinnacle of pro-wrestling. See what he did there? But here’s the thing! MJF, you consider yourself a fine wine, that he’ll get better with age. But he doesn’t want to wait for the aging, he wants it all now! He wants to be better than The GOAT, Chris Jericho, now. Those are big, big shoes to fill, MJF. You gotta go smaller, take baby steps. Be better than Peter Avalon, or Michael Nakazawa, or “that stupid Burberry scarf you’ve been wearing for a few years. It’s tired, it’s old, it’s stale, and it sucks!” Time to change it up, MJF! Plus, Jericho was rocking the scarf look a few years ago, so if you’re better than Jericho, why is he stealing Jericho’s shit?

But Jericho has an old clipboard in the back if MJF wants to add it to the list of things he’s stolen from Jericho! Y’see, MJF isn’t as good as he thinks he is, and he believes his own hype. Jericho sees MJF listening to the critics and the fans online. MJF would bee-line after every match or promo he’s ever had just to check what people thought! That’s called “Being a mark.” But Jericho makes it “being a Max,” because Max is a mark for himself! The true issue is that MJF knows he will never, ever be better than Jericho. He will never be better than Jericho, and you know it. That’s because Jericho is a true fine wine that has aged and fermented and soured.

Speaking of sour, just look at the men My Jerkoff Friend has aligned with! Tully Blanchard! He’s the greatest mind in pro-wrestling history? Really? No, he’s the third-string member of the Four Horsemen, stuck between Ole Anderson and Paul Roma. Then there’s FTR! They would be one of the best tag teams in the world today, but they’re completely interchangeable! Which one is which? It’s like the AEW version of The Jonas Brothers, where you know they’re good, you know they make money, but you don’t know any of their names! Is that Dax? Cash? Ax? Smash? Axel? Slash? “I DON’T KNOW!!”

And then of course, there’s Shawn Spears. Such a great upside, so they say, but Jericho’s never seen it. All Jericho has is the number on his phone from when Spears called him after getting fired from “The Fed” 10 years ago, asking for advice. Spears aligning himself with My Jerkoff Friend is about as good a move as rocking the blonde mohawk in 2021. And then there’s Wardlow! Of of course! A million dollar body with a 13 cent brain, and guess what? He’s so dumb, he has to strip naked to count to 21! Think about it, Jericho’s seen him do it. But compared to the Inner Circle, the NEW Inner Circle that will dominate AEW once more but with the fans all behind them, The Pinnacle is good, can beat the crap out of them, but who cares?! The Inner Circle loves to fight!

The bottom line is, the Inner Circle will shove the faces of The Pinnacle up each other’s asses and form a human centipede, with MJF in the back! “You want blood? You want violence? You got it!!” They’ve been waiting for a match since March 25th of last year! Why play grab ass anymore? You want blood and violence? You get it! May 5th, right here at Daily’s Place, for the first time ever, Pinnacle VS Inner Circle, BLOOD AND GUTS!! The Inner Circle is back in black, and now that they’re back, they will kick the ever living shit out of the Pinnacle! “The worst is yet to come, God help you for it!!” FINALLY, the match the world has wanted to see! Will MJF’s future be nothing but suffering for what he has done?

 

Backstage interview with Christian Cage.

Dasha congratulates Captain Charisma on his victorious AEW in-ring debut. So then, how is he feeling? And what’s next? Christian says last week “was the culmination of an entire year of me scratching, clawing, and grinding in complete solitude for that very moment of stepping through those ropes, kneeling down, kissing that canvas, and taking back what was taken from me seven years ago.” Now he can’t talk about last week without talking about his opponent, Frankie Kazarian. Kaz took him to the deep waters, and pushed him so far down. Christian’s lungs were on fire, and he loved every single second of it!

Fans were in awe of Kaz’s performance, but not Christian, because Christian has always known what Kaz is about. Kaz knows that Christian isn’t like everyone else. When you step into the ring with Christian, you have to bring it up another level. Christian makes others level up! But then Taz interrupts and says for those who don’t know, these two have known each other for a long time. That all said, seven years is a long time. Taz has a team that can help Christian get where he wants to be, so Taz will just get right to his offer: Christian can join Team Taz! They can all help each other, and a guy with Christian’s wealth of knowledge would be a great help.

And before Christian can say too much first, Taz won’t put him on the spot. Christian can sleep on it. Will Captain Charisma choose to join the Path of Rage?

 

Jurassic Express VS Bear Country!

Two forces of nature will collide, but #OneWillFall. Godzilla VS Kong is in theaters, but here is a pretty good teaser right here! Will Jungle Boy & Luchasaurus represent for the reptiles? Or will the burly Boulder & Bronson bring the heat on behalf of warm-blooded beasts everywhere?

The teams sort out, Luchasaurus steps up to Boulder and fans fire up already! Bronson and JB walk over, and Bronson shoves JB right down! Luchasaurus choke grips Bronson, but Boulder shoves Luchasaurus to the corner! JB returns to SHOTGUN dropkick Bronson, then dodges Boulder to set him up for Luchasaurus’ BOOT! Another SHOTGUN, another BOOT and the Bears are out of the ring! JB builds speed to DIVE into Bronson! JB keeps going, and DIVES again! JB keeps it up, and he FLIES, but into the arms of Bear Country! But JB wriggles free as Luchasaurus FLIES in and bowls Bear Country over!

Fans fire up as JB and Luchasaurus regroup. They get Boulder in, Luchasaurus drags Boulder up but Boulder RAMS him into the corner! Bronson tags in, Boulder whips him in and Bronson SPLASHES Luchasaurus in the corner! Bronson fires off hands, Luchasaurus shoves back but Bronson ROCKS him! Tag to Boulder and now Bronson whips Boulder in, but into a boot then KNEE! Bronson runs in, Luchasaurus goes up and over, then handsprings to dodge Boulder! Hot tag to JB! Luchasaurus elbows Bronson, JB leaps but Boulder catches the rana! Luchasaurus is up top, and LEAPS, but he just bounces off Boulder! Boulder keeps JB up to BOMB him!

AEW goes picture in picture as Boulder grits his teeth as he paces around JB and fans rally up. Boulder brings JB up, scoops him and SLAMS him! Boulder makes sure his arms are working, and Luchasaurus seems to be alright after that crash landing. Tag to Bronson, the bears mug JB, and Bronson drags JB up to DECK him! JB gets to a corner, Bronson storms over but JB kicks back from below. Bronson blocks a kick to rain down furious fists! Bronson lets off as the ref counts, and he drags JB up. JB SLAPS Bronson, CHOPS him, but Bronson HEADBUTTS JB down! Cover, TWO! Bronson grows frustrated but he stalks JB and keeps him from Luchasaurus.

Bronson whips JB to CLOBBER him! Tag to Boulder, Bronson stands on JB and then Boulder steps on him! Boulder drags JB up, scoops him, and hits a BACKBREAKER! JB writhes but he still reaches for Luchasaurus. Boulder stands on JB’s head, lets off as the ref counts, then drops a big elbow on the back! Boulder drags JB up, puts him in a corner and whips him corner to corner to then back drop on the rebound! AEW returns to single picture as Boulder drags JB up and tags Bronson in. Bear Country mugs JB, then Bronson whips JB into the corner. JB BOOTS back, fights out and slides under but Boulder tags in!

Bronson keeps JB from Luchasaurus, Bear Country double suplexes, but JB lands on his feet! JB dodges and hot tags Luchasaurus! Luchasaurus rallies with big shoulders, BOOTS Boulder then BOOTS him in the corner! Luchasaurus adds Bronson to the pile to fire off hands! GERMAN SUPLEX for Bronson, then Luchasaurus ducks the running knee to kip up and TAIL WHIP! LARIAT! Fans fire up with Luchasaurus and he waits for Boulder to get up. Boulder turns around into a choke grip! Bronson storms over, into a choke grip! The bears break free but Luchasaurus boots through their double clothesline! ROUNDHOUSE to HEEL KICK!

Luchasaurus runs but is put on the apron. He HEADBUTTS Boulder, climbs up, but Boulder trips him up! Boulder climbs up, but Luchasaurus choke grips! Boulder fights it off! But Luchasaurus still gets the grip! Boulder HEADBUTTS Luchasaurus! Boulder gets a SUPERPLEX! Both men are down but the fans are fired up! Boulder covers, but JB FROG SPLASHES it apart! Bronson drags JB up to throw him out but JB shoulders back in! JB slingshots and spins around to DDT! JB baits Boulder into Luchasaurus’ EXTINCTION LEVEL EVENT! Cover, but Bronson scoops JB for a MICHINOKU DRIVER onto the pin! All four are down and the fans fire up again!

The teams regroup as fans chant “This is Awesome!” Bronson and Boulder combine, head for Luchasaurus, CANNON BEAR!! They drag Luchasaurus to a cover, TWO!! Luchasaurus survives and Boulder can’t believe it! Boulder is frustrated, but he tags Bronson in, and they decide to combine again! Boulder has Bronson on the Electric Chair, but Luchasaurus sits up! JB returns and he dropkicks Boulder’s legs out! Bronson drops into the TAIL WHIP!! Boulder BOOTS Luchasaurus, grabs JB and whips, but JB LARIATS on the return! Luchasaurus pushes Boulder out! Bronson staggers into a choke grip, and the CHOKE SLAM! MESOZOIC MOONSAULT! Cover, Jurassic Express wins!

Winners: Jurassic Express, by pinfall

Who needs Godzilla VS Kong? This was a true clash of alpha titans! Will Jurassic Express now pull into the top spot right behind Death Triangle?

 

AEW hears from QT Marshall.

In reference to Cody Rhodes, “Your mantra should be, ‘Do the work for me.‘ Whether it’s creating this incredible training facility, or carrying your broken down brother through whatever career he had left, ever since the beginning of our ‘friendship,’ all I’ve ever done is do work for you.” QT is sick of the narrative Cody is creating about how he was going out of his way to help QT, but leaving QT dead in the water before he ever got started. Cody wants to doubt QT Marshall’s credentials? Let’s talk about those credentials for a minute. Cody was second fiddle to Ted (DeBiase) Jr, then went hiding behind face paint because even as “Dusty’s kid,” he knew he’d never amount to shit.

But Cody “figured it out” at some point. He got on the indies, surrounded himself with “vanilla midgets,” and felt like the star he knew he’d never be. But QT has surrounded himself with men. Hungry, sick and tired of waiting in the shadows, and that can trust QT and QT can trust back. Because unlike “Bargain Brand Sting,” QT isn’t worried about other people’s success. Aaron Solow, “who will never be known as ‘just somebody’s boyfriend.'” Nick Comoroto, who isn’t just some “body guy.” And Anthony Ogogo, who is a household name in the UK! A mainstream fighter and star! The British follow his career and cheer every punch. Ogogo does Subway commercials for business and knocks people out for fun!

But this ain’t Great Britain, this is “Shitty” America! So all you Yanks are gonna learn soon enough who Ogogo is. QT tells Cody that this is HIS goddamn factory now! Comoroto splashes the Nightmare Factory logo on the wall with blue paint, and this fearsome foursome has left its mark! Will others join them? Or will they simply know not to side with The Prince of Pro-Wrestling?

 

AEW returns with Schiavone on stage.

This never gets old for Tony. Once again on Dynamite, “It’s STIIIIIIIING~!” The snow, the crow and the Icon! A lot to unpack with the TNT Championship coming up, but Jake the Snake interrupts. “This is not the way we do it. You remember! How can you forget? It’s only been what? Seven days?” They start, Snake and Archer interrupt, Sting does nothing and keeps his mouth shut, or maybe just shuts his hole. Where’s his little gerbil friend, by the way? Yes, he’s a gerbil. But they say insanity is doing the same thing over and expecting a different result, and Snake is a crazy son of a bitch so he should know!

But Archer interrupts now and says this is enough. If that’s insanity, then Snake isn’t the only crazy one, Archer’s “one sick son of a bitch!” And Archer is sick and tired of the AEW agenda! Bring Archer in, bring him to the top, but then send him away. He fights Moxley, then goes away. He works main event after main event, then he goes away. He’s done with that! The world will pay attention to the Murderhawk Monster, and Sting will pay attention closely. This is Archer’s time! Archer should be getting the interviews! Sting doesn’t need to talk because this is Archer’s time! But then Sting snatches the mic away!

“Now it’s MY time!” Then say something! He’d say something if Archer would be slow to speak and quick to listening. Zip up and understand that Sting AGREES! Archer is a main event guy, but then he disappears, and Sting doesn’t understand it, either! Snake, what’s wrong with you? What’s that dumbfounded face for? Tell Archer how to do it! Or maybe just shut your hole now. Sting says Archer IS main event material, he has “it,” but Snake needs to actually help him! Help Archer channel this in the right direction and then he will be in that ring on TNT in a main event, maybe even for the world title, without disappearances. Just make it happen! Make it showtime! If you’ve got it in you, go do it!

Sting storms off, but All Ego, Ethan Page, and the Face of the Revolution, Scorpio Sky, are watching from the bleachers. They don’t seem to see it Sting’s way, but what is Archer’s response? Archer storms off, too, with Snake following. With Ethan and Scorpio have their own input on this?

 

Team Taz speaks.

But before Taz himself can say anything, Ricky Starks speaks up and wants to start by saying AEW Dark was great! They got the win thank to Brian Cage! And as the winner, let’s hear from Cage! Taz speaks up and says no, not this time. Starks instigated, he isn’t going to get away with it this week. Will Hobbs wants to say something but Taz already knows what he’ll say. Everyone just needs to chill out, get on the same page. Starks, stop instigating. But they’ve got to be real smart, because they’ve got an offer to a real blue chipper in Christian Cage. That could happen! Starks says absolutely. But will they be able to handle having two Cages on the same team? Or will they end up with no Cages in no time?

 

AEW TNT Championship: Darby Allin w/ Sting VS JD Drake w/ Ryan Nemeth & Cezar Bononi!

The Relentless wants to be a fighting champion, and another rising star answered the call! Will the Blue Collar Badass prove that even a rugged mug like his can be the Face of the Network? Or will the Icon prove to be a superior wingman to the Hollywood Hunk and the Beautiful Brazilian Beefcake?

The introductions are made, the title is raised, and the fighting champion is in for a fight!

Darby and JD stare down as fans fire up and rally. They circle, tie up, and JD puts Darby in a corner. The ref counts, Darby ducks a chop and then ducks again. Darby headlocks, JB powers up to throw him to a corner. Darby boots the chop away, shoves JD but JD goes up and over to CHOP him! Darby bails out, fans fire up, and a ring count begins. JD dares Darby to get back in and Darby is on the apron. Darby pie faces JD then dares him to bring it to the outside. JD takes the bait, Darby gets in then WRECKS JD with a dropkick! Darby runs to DIVE and ram JD into railing! Darby gets up top, Nemeth distracts everyone, and Darby leaps, but JD bounces him off his shoulder!

Nemeth laughs at Darby while JD drags him up, but Sting is there to scare Nemeth away! JD puts Darby in to drop a  BIG back senton! Sting keeps backing Nemeth all they way to the timekeeper’s table and further away! JD ROCKS Darby, Nemeth keeps running, and JD CHOPS away on Darby! Bononi is still in JD’s corner as JD drops knees then covers, ONE!! Darby sputters but JD brings him up. Darby throws body shots but JD scoops and SLAMS to then drop a headbutt! Cover, TWO!, and AEW goes picture in picture.

JD stalks Darby, drags him up, chokes him on the ropes, but lets off as the ref counts. JD waits for Darby to get up, then brings him around to ROCK him with a right! Darby ends up in a corner, JD CHOPS him, then lets him feel it for a moment. Darby gets up, SLAPS JD, but JD SLAPS Darby back! JD whips Darby, LARIATS him inside out, then covers, TWO! Darby survives but JD wraps on a chinlock! JD grinds Darby down into the mat, but Darby fights his way up. Darby throws body shots, but JD back suplexes high and hard! JD drags Darby up the corner with him, but Darby SLAPS JD! And back hands and SLAPS and SLAPS and SLAPS!

Darby climbs up, fires off more SLAPS, then haymakers! JD shoves Darby away and hits a FLYING LEG LARIAT! Cover, TWO! Darby survives, JD grows frustrated, but JD steps on Darby as he goes to the corner. AEW returns to single picture as Darby bails out. JD pursues, stalks Darby, and he brings Darby around but Darby throws body shots! Darby throws a forearm but JD tosses him into ropes to CLOBBER him! JD shouts, “Tonight’s MY night!” Darby crawls, Bononi cheers JD on, and JD refreshes the ring count to then aim at Darby near the railings. JD runs in and CANNONBALLS but only into railing as Darby dodges!

Darby gets to the ring, gets up the corner, and he LEAPS onto both Bononi and JD! Darby gets back in the ring as fans are fired up for “A E DUB!” The ring count is 5 of 10 but JD gets in! Darby clubs away on JD with furious fists, then goes up the corner. JD trips Darby up! JD gets Darby in the Tree of Woe to KICK, CLUB and then sit him up by his chin. Darby SLAPS JD, but JD sits Darby up to CHOP him on the back! Darby is back in the Tree of Woe, JD runs and CANNONBALLS Darby down! JD goes up top fast, VADER BOMB! Cover, TWO!! Darby survives and JD is shocked! Fans fire up, JD drags Darby back to the drop zone and goes back up top. MOONSAULT FLOPS!

Darby is in the corner, he climbs back up but JD ROCKS him first! JD climbs up now, but Darby SLAPS him! JD SLAPS, it’s a SLAP fight up top! But then Darby grabs a hand to BITE it, and hits a SUPER CODE RED!! JD is in a drop zone, Darby goes up top, COFFIN DROP!! Cover, Darby wins!

Winner: Darby Allin, by pinfall (still AEW TNT Champion)

The Relentless is still champion, still Face of the Network, and still on a hot win streak! But then THE BUTCHER clobbers Darby! The Hardy Family Office is here and they mug Darby on behalf of Hardy himself! Bunny Allie says commentary needs to get their stuff off the table because they’re going to use it! But then Sting and the Dark Order are here to run HFO off! Bunny is furious, but she’s gotta face Tay Conti in the ring now! Is she reconsidering given the HFO ran off? Too late! Tay tackles her on the stage and rains down fury! The refs hurry to break this up because this needs to happen in the ring! Will Tay tear into Bunny on behalf of Darby and the Dark Order?

 

AEW returns with a backstage interview with Chris Jericho.

Marvez brings up the huge news that Blood & Guts is happening on May 5th! Jericho tells Alex Marvez he’s more handsome than usual. What’s he doing that’s new? But then MJF blindsides Jericho, and the Pinnacle join in! FTR, Shawn Spears, and Wardlow shove Jericho towards gorilla and then the stage! Where is the Inner Circle!? MJF chokes Jericho with his scarf! FTR gets Jericho up for the MIND BREAKER!! Marvez signals to cameras, and the Inner Circle door has been bolted shut! The Inner Circle literally bust through the door to get free! But the Pinnacle keeps mugging Jericho and they get a table!

Spears brings the table to the apron, Wardlow reels Jericho in, but here comes IRON MIKE TYSON!! Tyson and Jericho may not be friends, but Tyson isn’t going to let a group of thugs brutalize Jericho! Thyson fires off on Spears! He rains down fury like in his prime! FTR saves Spears, the Inner Circle rushes to even things up!! The Pinnacle goes running now, and fans are fired up for Tyson standing with the Inner Circle! Is the Baddest Man on the Planet really on Jericho’s side? They shake hands! Jericho and Tyson let bygones be bygones, and Tyson says “up yours” to MJF! Will Iron Mike help the Inner Circle get ready for Blood & Guts?

 

Schiavone interviews Britt Baker (and Rebel) backstage.

The Doctor has a special announcement, and a small request for Tony Khan. “Tony, give the people what they want already!” A championship match for The Doctor! But she’s ranked fourth, there are others ahead of her. Yeah, let’s talk about those rankings. The win-loss system is UTTER CRAP! Championship opportunities should be based on star power, merchandise sales, and the demographic scores, which Britt is at the top of the food chain. It’s not her fault she had to waste a year putting respect on the women’s division and make history. But like a true Role Model, she will fix the broken system, climb up the rankings, and pretend like it actually matters.

So make sure to tune into Dynamite, Dark and Elevation where you will see The Doctor getting those wins up. Signed yours truly, Britt Baker DMD. Will Britt “expose” the AEW system for what it is?

 

The Bunny w/ The Hardy Family Office VS Tay Conti w/ The Dark Order!

Things may have calmed down from that brawl earlier, but there’s madness just below the surface when it comes to Allie the Bunny. But to counter the HFO being ringside, the Brazilian Blackbelt has not only the Dark Order’s Preston Vance, Evil Uno, Stu Grayson and Negative One, but she has Hikaru Shida with her! Will the Numbers game be in Tay’s favor?

The bell rings and these two fire off forearms! Tay gets the edge, Bunny kicks low and clubs away, then CLAWS Tay on the back! Bunny bumps Tay off buckles, Tay wobbles but Bunny bumps her off more buckles! Fans rally for Tay as Bunny digs her boots in! The ref counts, Bunny lets off and the HFO talk trash. Bunny brings Tay up and talks trash but Tay blocks the kick! Tay clinches for an EXPLODER! Bunny flounders, Tay fires up and runs in to BOOT Bunny down! Then she boot WASHES! Bunny flops out of the ring, Tay goes to the apron and aims. Bunny dodges one kick, blocks the next and trips Tay into the apron! Bunny seethes, but then laughs as she brings Tay around to snap suplex to the floor!

Bunny sees Tay floundering to railing, and run sin to SHOTGUN her into the railing! Tay flops down, the HFO is fired up and Bunny drags Tay up as AEW goes picture in picture.

Bunny bumps Tay off the apron, brings her back around and puts her into the ring. Bunny takes a moment to laugh like a hyena, and then she stomps Tay down. Bunny drags Tay up, talks trash and throws big knees into her! Bunny runs and knee lifts Tay down! Cover, TWO! Bunny gets frustrated already but she drags Tay up. Tay fires back with forearms and then reels Bunny into a cradle! TWO, and Bunny CLOBBERS Tay! Cover, TWO! Bunny is angry again but Tay reaches out for her friends. Bunny drags Tay around, looms over her, and brings her into the cobra camel clutch! Tay endures, Bunny thrashes her around, and AEW goes to break.

AEW returns as Tay throws Bunny around with drop sayanagis! Tay then gets Bunny up for the swinging BACKBREAKER! Bunny crawls to a corner, Tay runs in but the knee hits buckles! Tay hobbles into a SUPERKICK! Cover, TWO!! Shida and the Dark Order cheer Tay on but Bunny slaps some fire into herself. Bunny drags Tay up, brings her around, dragon sleepers but Tay fights free! Tay fires off forearms, Hardy gets on the apron and stands in Tay’s way! But Tay dodges Bunny, Bunny avoids running into Hardy, and Tay gets her for a Gory Especial, to the TAY K O!! Cover, TWO!?! Bunny survives and shocks everyone, especially Tay!

Bunny crawls to the apron, Tay drags her back up, but Bunny hotshots her! Tay staggers away onto ropes, Bunny sucker punches Shida! Bunny gets Shida’s kendo stick but all hell breaks loose between Dark Order and HFO! The ref is busy with that, just as Bunny wanted, and she SMACKS Tay with the kendo stick! Is Allie a bunny or a weasel!? Bunny then climbs up, but Shida snatches the stick away! Tay ROCKS Bunny, climbs up to get her, and hits a SUPERPLEX! Roll through, hammerlock, DD-TAY!! Cover, Tay wins!!

Winner: Tay Conti, by pinfall

The champion helps her #1 contender, because it’s more about respect than anything! Will these friendly rivals become friendly opponents soon enough?

 

AEW sets up next week’s big episode of Dynamite!

After calling Darby out on Elevation and Dark, then being part of the attack on him tonight, Matt Hardy gets his shot at the TNT Championship, in a Falls Count Anywhere match! Will Big Money Matt strike gold in Daily’s Place? Then, as we learned earlier tonight, the Young Bucks will defend the AEW Tag Team Championships against Death Triangle’s PAC & Rey Fenix! The Bastard & Firebird were put on notice by Best Friends, but will the titles be part of the mix? And now that he is firmly part of QT’s cell, Anthony Ogogo finally has his AEW in-ring debut! Is Ogogo gonna knock out whoever is put in his path?

And speaking of “finally,” Red Velvet and Jade Cargill go 1v1 so settle the score! Jade won in the mixed tag, but will she pull off sweet victory all on her own? Or will Velvet get her sweet revenge? In fact…

Red Velvet speaks.

“Jade, I finally figured out what your deal is with me. Why you keep looking for me.” It’s because Jade knows that on the night she beat Velvet on national television, Jade knew then and there that she barely got the job done! Jade calls herself #ThatBitch? Then be #ThatBitchWhoGetsTheJobDone!

 

ONE MORE big match has been made for next week!

After the news of Blood & Guts finally happening, and after Mike Tyson stood alongside the Inner Circle, there’s a huge sampler to whet our appetites! Mike Tyson will be special guest enforcer as Chris Jericho with just Sammy Guevara ringside takes on Dax Hardwood with just Cash Wheeler by his side! That’s right, the rest of the Inner Circle and Pinnacle will be BANNED from ringside during this match to keep this as far as possible! Will Jericho and Tyson rewrite the mistakes of the past together?

 

Six Man Tag: Kenny Omega & The Good Brothers VS Jon Moxley & The Young Bucks!

Did anyone ever imagine the Elite ending up like this? Will there be any going back from this? Or have the bonds between the Best Bout Machine and the Jackson brothers been severed forever?

The trios sort out, Karl Anderson starts with Matt and the fans rally on the Bucks’ side. Callis mocks Matt with how he slapped him and Matt did nothing about it. Matt storms over, Callis backs off, and Omega suddenly wants in. Anderson tags Omega, Omega tries to talk with Matt about this, and Callis scurries to commentary. Omega and Matt tie up, go around, and Omega pulls hair to put Matt on ropes. Matt turns it around, the ref counts, Matt lets off but Omega pie faces. Matt shoves, Omega shoves, things get tense and Matt backs away to tag in Nick. Nick and Omega circle now, and Nick tries to point out this is Callis’ fault.

Matt wrenches the arm again and again and then tags in Moxley. Moxley climbs up to drop an ax handle on the arm. Moxley drags Anderson up to wrench, snapmare and PENALTY KICK! Moxley drags Anderson up, tags Matt in and they mug Anderson. Matt wrenches, Anderson powers Matt to the corner, and he throws hands! Tag to Gallows, the Good Brothers mug Matt, then Gallows ROCKS Matt with uppercuts and haymakers, over and over and over! Gallows backs off to throw ’em up, then drags Matt up for a HEADBUTT!

Omega tags in, he and Gallows hand off the wristlock, and Omega wrenches Matt to CLUB the arm! Omega drags Matt to CLUB the arm again, then wraps the arm around ropes to pull! The ref counts, Omega lets off, and bumps Matt off buckles. Tag to Anderson, Anderson snapmares Matt to a chinlock. Matt endures, Anderson cranks back, and Matt fights up to throw body shots. Anderson ROCKS Matt with an uppercut, then CHOPS him! Anderson keeps Matt from his corner as AEW returns to single picture, and whips him back towards the Biz Cliz corner. Matt dropkicks Gallows down, DECKS Omega, then BOOTS Anderson! Matt swings into a back suplex but lands on his feet! Hot tag to Moxley!

Moxley dodges Anderson, DECKS Omega and hits Gallows, then rallies on Anderson! Moxley clotheslines, whips but Anderson reverses! Anderson runs in to clothesline, but Moxley just shrugs it off!

Gallows throws heavy hands and Moxley flounders into a BUZZSAW! Gallows stalks Moxley to a corner, rains down more fists, then goes corner to corner, but Moxley gets up and in his face! Both men dodge and spin, Moxley kicks low to NECKBREAKER! Fans fire up as Moxley heads for the corner, hot tags to Nick and Anderson! Nick dodges Anderson to BLAST Omega! Nick bobs ‘n’ weaves to forearm, back kick, ROUNDHOUSE and have Anderson in a corner!

Gallows gets in, throws hands then throws Nick, but Nick dodges! ROUNDHOUSE, SHINING WIZARD and forearm smash in the corner, the Nick runs at Anderson. Anderson dodges, Nick hits buckles, but then Nick dodges as Anderson runs in! Anderson gets stuck in the corner, Nick runs at Gallows but is put on the apron! Nick ENZIGURIS back, climbs up and DUMDUM STOMPS, to then somersault for the DRAPING BACKSTABBER! Fans fire up with Nick as he goes to the apron and PENALTY KICKS Gallows down! Nick shoulders into Anderson, then slingshots, into the SPINEBUSTER! Both men are down but crawling, hot tags to Matt and Omega!

The Bucks get Omega up, they have an arm each, B T E- No, Matt hesitates! Moxley tells them to finish this! Matt knows, and says he can do this. Matt and Nick get Onega up again, B T E Tr- No…!! Matt still can’t bring himself to do it! Moxley tags in and says he’ll do this! But Matt won’t let him, so now Mox sees where this is going. Moxley blows past Matt to hit a PARADIGM SHIFT on Omega!! And then a SECOND PARADIGM SHIFT to make a point!! BULLY CHOKE!! Omega is stuck, sputtering, and then Moxley spins Omega-

NICK SUPERKICKS Moxley?! The MATT SUPERKICKS MOXLEY!! Eddie Kingston storms out to ringside, but the Good Brothers jump him! Moxley’s friend gets stomped down by Omega’s friends, but what does all this make the Bucks? MAGIC KILLER to Kingston on the ramp!! Callis says they should get a stretcher for Kingston. The Good Brothers get Moxley up, MAGIC KILLER! They put Omega on Moxley for the cover, the Biz Cliz wins!

Winners: Kenny Omega & The Good Brothers, by pinfall

Are the Young Bucks still Omega’s friends? Are they still Biz Cliz 4 Life? Omega wants them to prove their loyalties by doing something more to Moxley! Callis whispers something to Matt, and Matt looks to Nick. They DOUBLE SUPERKICK Moxley down! Fans chant, “You Sold Out!” as Matt refuses the Too Sweet, so they can group hug! When will this emotional roller coaster with the Elite end?


My Thoughts:

Another great episode for Dynamite, and they’re clearly making a big deal out of no longer having a Wednesday Night War in their way. We’re getting a big episode next week with some good groundwork paved for it tonight, as well as for several more Wednesdays down the line. The first is that we are getting the tag title match now, but Best Friends are starting up their feud with Death Triangle again, with or without the titles. Given how tonight ended, I don’t know if PAC & Fenix win over these solidly Heel Bucks, but getting trios matches out of Death Triangle and Best Friends would still be awesome to see anyway.

We also got some great promos that put in some worked shoot material. Sting actually telling Archer he should be a top guy was great, because it is just as true as he and Archer said. This was also a good twist because where I thought we were getting Heel Archer going against Sting and/or Darby, this could flip Archer back towards a Face direction, and he’ll be taking on Ethan Page & Scorpio Sky, since they got cameos in the segment. QT’s promo with his unnamed faction was really good, and I am intrigued to see Ogogo finally get in the ring. Jericho’s promo tearing into MJF and The Pinnacle was an all time great, and is definitely going to be AEW’s best for this entire year. The brawl that followed and Tyson being with Inner Circle is great, as will Blood & Guts FINALLY happening!

Britt Baker’s promo was also good worked shoot adjacent, where she points out how AEW’s win loss record stuff doesn’t work. But instead of saying gimmick matches and tournaments and things are the problem, her character wants to make this into the (WWE) popularity system. This will make for a nice detail of her story as she racks up wins against lower level opponents, much like she’s already started with on Dark and Elevation, and then maybe she gets too cocky and lets one get a quick win off her, thereby ruining her run at the top spot. Plus, it feels like there’s a great story already in the works for Tay and Shida.

We got good intertwining of Darby’s story with Hardy and the Dark Order’s story with Hardy, and how Tay can fit into that against Bunny. Darby VS JD was great stuff, and then there was the great segue of the attack by the HFO, and how Tay and Bunny brawled then had their own solid match. Shida VS Tay is going to be big, and at this rate, could go either way because Tay is a hot hand right now. I’m surprised there wasn’t intertwining with Hangman, but given his great match with Caster to lock in as #1, maybe AEW is going to shift him towards the world title soon. I am also surprised Caster is getting the greenlight on his lyrics but I am not complaining, either.

We got an awesome main event with that 3v3, with great story of the Bucks unable to proverbially pull the trigger on Omega. The Bucks might be coming off a bit too wishy-washy, because they did the group Too Sweet but they then get up set at Callis but now they do this because they just can’t bring themselves to hate Omega. I guess the Biz Cliz can roll as a bigger group, with any number of possibilities given the growing partnerships with Impact and NJPW. But for just AEW, is there a chance Moxley and Kingston can get Death Triangle to side with them for just long enough to take on Omega’s group? Kingston may have been manipulating the Lucha Bros just months ago, but they all have common enemies in Omega and The Bucks. Plus, that’s a wild combination there that needs to be in a match together.

My Score: 9.5/10

And indeed, Players One, Two and Three get the 1-2-3! Will they continue to stand strong, even with enemies closing in on all sides?

 

Ryan Nemeth, Cezar Bononi & JD Drake talk backstage.

Beautiful Bononi tells the Hollywood Hunk that this was his idea, and Bononi already said it is “humanly impossible,” so it is all on Nemeth. Nemeth says he needs two wingmen! And this guy will be perfect! They can mold him into something hot, sexy, beautiful, bold, supple! Amazing! JD likes that word but what does “supple” mean? Nemeth says they aren’t going to change who he is, they accept him for who he is, but- JD says he may speak slow with an accent, but he’s not an idiot. These are sounding like fat jokes.

Nemeth says it’s just about going from having the rugged beard to a nice mustache, or bleaching his hair and styling it. Just something to make him sexier. What’s sexier than a hard-working, blue collar badass? Well, we’ll see. Wingmen on three. One, two… Okay only Nemeth is into it, that’s fine. He wants them to know he loves ’em and he’ll see them out there. Will Pretty Peter Avalon’s boys be able to pull it off?

 

Six Man Tag: Team Taz VS Justin Law, Hayden Backlund & Brick Aldridge!

The Absolute, the Machine and the Powerhouse won their first match as a trio, but it was a bit… tense. Will Team Taz still (not) be fine after another try?

The trios sort out, with Team Taz arguing a little, and Cage gets the team to let him start. Cage starts against Law, and runs him right over! Cage drags Law back up, whips him to a corner but Law goes up and over, only to get caught! Law flails and gets free, dodges Cage and tilt-o-whirls, only for Cage to TOSS him away! Brick tags in, circles with Cage, and fans rally up as the two tie up. Cage gets to a headlock, Brick powers out to a hammerlock then a headlock, but Cage powers out. Brick rams Cage but Cage comes back to ram and ROCK Brick! “Who betta?!” Starks cheers a little too much as Cage whips Brick. Brick reverses but Cage tilt-o-whirls to headscissor!

Cage waits for Brick to get up, then he back kicks and snap suplexes! Cage runs to drop a leg, brother! Cage hauls Brick up, looks at Starks, and tags Hobbs in. Hobbs and Cage mug Brick but Starks lets that slide since he did the same to Cage. Hobbs boxes Brick from all sides, then whips him to ropes. Brick dodges and rams Hobbs! Hobbs staggers but smiles, to then hit a SPINEBUSTER! Hobbs grins wider as he drags Brick up. Hobbs wants a tag, Starks makes sure he gets it first. They mug Brick now, then Starks ROCKS Brick. Brick shoves Starks down and tags in Backlund! Backlund fires off on Starks, then dodges to CLOBBER him!

Fans fire up as Backlund has Starks in the corner! Starks shoves Backlund, DECKS Law, them puts Backlund up and out, and Backlund accidentally elbow drops Law! Starks shoves Backlund in, drags him up and CHOPS, then ROCKS him! Starks plays things up too long and Backlund BOOTS him! Backlund climbs up, leaps and crossbodies, but into Starks’ arms! The ref is busy with this and Hook trips Brick off the apron! Starks adjusts Backlund’s position for the ROSHAMBEAUX! Starks asks if Cage wants to finish this off, then tags him in.

I’m a shooter, homie. I ain’t moving with the clock. I’ma take you out faster than you take a shot. Cosplay cowboy, probably ride sidesaddle. You probably on all fours, taking five paddles, from the Dark Order in the club house. You went soft but the Platinum is thugged out!

“I beat 10, beat Alex, and Colt, too. I’ll get Five, John Silver, Uno and Stu. And when your friends are all on the shelf, you’ll be back sitting at the bar by yourself. This goes out to Hangman. In the ring, you can’t hang, man. And when you’re on the show, you’re an eye sore! I’ma knock your ass of the high horse. You don’t have no real friends. Always up in your feelins. Cuz nobody loves you, everybody told me. Call the Acclaimed if you’re feelin’ lonely. Call us up! You feelin’ lonely, Hangman? I know you feelin’ lonely.” Platinum just dropped some heavy bars, but will be the one getting dropped on Dynamite?

Winners: Bear Country, by pinfall

Boulder & Bronson are rolling towards their showdown with Jurassic Express! But who will survive when these forces of nature collide on Dynamite?


My Thoughts:

At an hour and 16, this was a manageable episode of Dark, with a lot of short matches that were still good matches. I do like that we’re getting story progress here, such as with the new group of Nemeth, JD and Bononi, and another great new music video from Max Caster. I also like that Starks and Cage were still being passive aggressive with each other, that is good story for Team Taz there. We got good tune-ups for Jurassic Express and Bear Country going into their match on Dynamite, but I would feel like Jurassic Express wins because they’ve been the hot hand for some time.

My Score: 8.1/10
