Backstage interview with SoCal Uncensored!
What can AEW expect from their World Tag Team Champions? Scorpio Sky says you can expect SCU to stand in “Sacksonville” and say they are carrying the titles in a division where everyone is ready to step up. The Lucha Brothers, Private Party, and even The Dark Order. Scorpio says that no one likes it when “spooky perverts” show up to ruin the finish! Tell ’em, Kaz! Yeah, it’s gross. Before the New Year, the Young Bucks brought the best but got shut down, Santana & Ortiz aren’t going to run the ball up the middle. They’re going to be put down by two guys wearing the jerseys of SCU, Kazarian and Scorpio.
“Oh is that so?” Sammy Guevara comes in and begs to differ. Proud ‘n’ Powerful will deal with SCU. But congrats on being the historic first champs. What does Christopher Daniels have other than wrinkles and L’s? Maybe Pentagon was right. Maybe Daniels doesn’t have it anymore. Well if Sammy wants to question him, then he’ll get an answer next week. Hey don’t smudge the camera! This was Sammy’s Christmas present. Jenn, let him use your dress- No! Stop! Sammy’s vlog aside, will he prove to everyone watching that the Fallen Angel has fallen on hard times?

Backstage interview with Joey Janela!
The Bad Boy ended 2019 on a high note, but for 2020… He gets a low blow from his ex! Penelope Ford leaves the Bad Boy feeling worse, or should we say… SUPERBAD! Kip Sabian is there and he leads his Bad Girl away.
The following is a paid message from THE DARK ORDER.
Evil Uno tells “The Exalted One,” it is done. The Elite has fallen. Footage of the 2019 finale reminds us all of the battle between The Elite and the Dark Order’s Creepers. It was just too much. “We have sown doubt through their ranks. Soon, they will see the true reach of The Dark Order.” This pleases their true leader. Find out more at JoinDarkOrder’s official website.

And still the #1 Contender, the Maniac, Jon Moxley! But the Inner Circle’s Sammy Guevara reappears. “Wow, buddy! Mox, Mox baby.” Sammy sees why he does the audience entrance. He gets to see the people, borrow a drink and food. Sammy loves disrespecting the fans like this. Moxley isn’t one to be disrespected, he gets a chair! Sammy says he’s not here to fight. The Inner Circle has a big surprise for him joining. It’s 2020, so Sammy puts on the New Year glasses. And the party blowers, too. Want one? No? Well the Inner Circle has big surprises. Right, Chris?
Le Champion is here via video. There is a big surprise. But it is no surprise that Moxley won. Moxley is the premier pro-wrestler to Jericho. That is why he wants Moxley in the Inner Circle. There are other factions who want people to join. The Dark Order, the Nightmare collective, but they can’t offer what the Inner Circle can offer. Moxley can lead alongside Jericho as equal partners. Moxley will have 49% of the Inner Circle LLC if he joins. he will be Executive Vice President of the Inner Circle! Oh and this lovely and most expensive vehicle, a Ford GT, will be given to Moxley as a gift! It has a great vanity license plate of “MOX,” too. The keys are his, if he just says “Yes.”
Think of how powerful they can be? They could take over AEW! Jericho wants Moxley to shove his fist down so far Cody’s throat he can pull that pink tie out from Cody’s ass! Jericho wants to rub it in Jungle Boy’s face that he couldn’t win! They can tie the Young Bucks into a Christmas bow no one wants. They can beat down Kenny Omega so badly that he feels as embarrassed and stupid as the citizens of Jacksonville. “The world could be ours. And all you have to do is say ‘Yes.'” Think the decision over wisely. Jericho looks forward to hearing from him. Quite the offer as Jericho drives away in the GT. But what is Moxley’s decision? Fans are divided but Moxley takes up a mic.
“Fancy, expensive cars aside, the truth is, I’ve always consider Chris Jericho a friend and mentor.” Out of respect, Moxley will give the answer to Jericho in person, next week. The whole world will find out what’s in store for AEW 2020. Fans are disappointed, but perhaps Moxley really does need to consider his options. What will he say to Y2J
Sammy has cue cards while AEW goes picture in picture!
“Well, Mox, you’ve seen the offer. The illustrious Ford GT, 49% in equity in Inner Circle LLC. When you have your answer, hit me up. Speaking of that… Victoria Justice’s sister… Hit me up.” Sammy has a Twitter and an Instagram, y’know. Will Victoria Justice’s sister hit him up?
“As for Dustin Rhodes… Last time… Broken arm. This time, broken hand? Broken foot? Who knows? Only one way to find out… It’s time to finish that job!” Sammy rips the last card and soaks up the heat. Will the Spanish God break what’s left of the Natural here tonight?

Backstage interview with Private Party!
Marq Quen and Isiah Kassidy are having fun in the New Year. What are their resolutions for 2020? They could go on and on, but they want to know Jenn’s plans. Hangman Page comes by to get himself a drink from the bar. Whoa, whoa, Hangman, how can you come in here and just snipe their screen time, and swipe some of their drinks? But they are a bit worried about Hangman. Oh are they? They should worry about him, because he could whoop both of them! Whoa, is he drunk already or something? Happy New Year’s, your party sucks. And Hangman takes that drink after all. Is Hangman going to pay for that? That’s $12.
Maxwell Jacob Friedman and Wardlow are here!
The Dynamite Diamond Ring Bearer and his muscle head to the ring, smug as always. For those who don’t know or don’t remember, MJF first betrayed his “best friend,” Cody, and then acted like he didn’t owe Cody a thing. Cody offered MJF a huge treasure trove of prizes, but MJF says he’s already rich enough. MJF talks trash while AEW is picture in picture, buying time before his promised announcement. He even breaks a fan’s sign! But at least he gets someone to kiss the ring.
AEW returns to single picture as MJF finally gets in the ring. The fans troll MJF but he just shrugs it off. They don’t seem to see that he’s the good guy here! “If your heads weren’t shoved so far up your own asses, you’d see shit clearly.” Sorry if that word play was too tough, but Jacksonville doesn’t seem to know words at all. Speaking of morons… Hi, Cody! “Isn’t it funny how the roles here have beautifully reversed?” Now Cody needs MJF. But this is 2020, the brink of history! MJF and Cody are so close to having the match “all your little mark boy fan club wants.” The only things left are the stipulations. “Let’s list them off, shall we?”
Stipulation 1: If Cody wants this match, they can have it one place, and that’s AEW Revolution. Until then, MJF doesn’t care what happens. If Cody touches him even once, there’s no match at Revolution or ever. Stipulation 2: Since Cody is so tough, it is only fair that in order to have this match, Cody will go 1v1 against a man of MJF’s choosing and win. That man is going to be none other than MJF’s war dog, WARDLOW! But is that good enough, Wardlow? Jacksonville, please SHUT UP while he’s talking to Wardlow. This is going to be Wardlow’s debut against “the mighty” Cody. Let’s up the ante. This match should be… “A SOLID STEEL CAGE!”
And lastly, Stipulation 3: MJF’s favorite stipulation, it will be live on TNT, in front of family, friends and God, Cody is going to get on all fours “like the dog that you are,” and MJF will WHIP him! Yes, and not just once. NO that’s too easy. Not two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight or nine! But TEN times! And as the leather belt rips Cody’s skin, each scar will be a constant reminder that he is Maxwell Jacob Friedman, “and I’m better than you…” Kiss the ring… “And you know it.” A lot to ask for, but is this what revenge is worthy to both MJF and Cody?
AEW relives the Ten Minute Challenge.
Chris Jericho bet Jungle Boy Jack Perry couldn’t last even this long against him, and Jungle Boy took on the challenge. And in the end, even while suffering the Walls of Jericho, Jungle Boy ran out the clock! Jenn Decker now interviews Jurassic Express to get their thoughts on that match. JB says that it has been wild. 2019 ended with the biggest match in his career, and he did what very few thought he could. This is a new year, a new decade, and it’ll be a big one for this trio and as individuals. Records reset, they’re ready to start strong. Marko Stunt wants a hug but Luchasaurus won’t let him. Will Jurassic Park make 2020 their year?
Backstage interview with Riho and Michael Nakazawa!
Though she is still AEW Women’s World Champion, there is no rest for the Wrestling Idol. She takes on her true #1 Contender, the Galaxy’s Greatest Alien, Kris Statlander, next week! She just went through a hard Fatal 4 Way fight tonight so what are her thoughts? Britt Baker interrupts and goes on a rant about how “nice” it is to have Riho back. How has she been and where has she been? Britt’s been here every week busting her butt being the face of the division! Riho does NOT deserve the title, winning by the skin of her teeth! Britt is doing this and having her dentistry practice! But no, Riho just come sin, has a match, then leaves! And with that, Britt leaves so Riho can answer the first question regarding Kris Statlander.
Michael translates to and for Riho, and the answer is that Riho is ready. Well we’ll have to see if that is true when Dynamite goes to Memphis!
BREAKING NEWS for Dynamite Memphis!
For the first time anywhere, the Lucha Brothers will take on the Rhodes Brothers! Will Cero Miedo be a nightmare for Cody and Dustin?
And after the confrontation between them at the bar, Private Party will take on Hangman Page, but with a partner! Kenny Omega again teams with Hangman, will they keep working together well in the New Year?
Six Man Tag: The Elite VS PAC & The Lucha Brothers!
Speaking of the Hangman Page, he surprises everyone by joining commentary, drink in hand. Perhaps he’s the Hungover Man right now… But with his friends, Kenny Omega and The Young Bucks, doing battle together once again, will everyone in The Elite have a Happy New Year here? Or will The Bastard work well enough with Pentagon and Fenix to show The Elite is no longer elite?
The teams sort out, Omega starts against Pac to get an unofficial rematch, but Pac wants no part of that. Pac tags right out to Pentagon, which confuses him a little. But in the end, we get another unofficial rematch from All In! Omega and Pentagon stand off, but Pentagon takes off the glove. And tosses it to the ref, but Omega intercepts!

Cody comes out to celebrate with his friends, because The Elite is still elite! Hangman heads on out, but the Elite want him to join in. Hangman says he’s not Elite, but he’s still their friend. He gives thumbs up and takes another sip before heading out. The Elite stand tall in the ring, will they continue to rise back up in the New Year?
Is this perhaps the best episode of AEW Dynamite ever? I feel like it is, because other than technical issues of just NOT knowing how to come back from picture in picture right, this was an amazing night. The only real disappointments from the actual content would be Moxley not just giving us his answer, perhaps going after Sammy Guevara as a proxy. Of course, then that would prevent us from getting a really funny cue card promo from Sammy, and a pretty good match between him and Dustin Rhodes. Of course, anything with Dustin and the Inner Circle boils down to Jake Hager’s involvement, so it worked in character and in story. Can we have Dustin VS Hager happen for Bash at the Beach or at least Revolution? It just needs to happen already because of how great it’ll be.
The only other disappointment came during the Women’s Fatal 4 Way. It wasn’t the result, or even the match as a whole necessarily. It just felt like the match went on one more moment than it should have, though it’s hard to place exactly when that would be. In the end, Riho pulls off another lucky win so it isn’t like any of the women were weakened. Nyla also gets to continue that rage story from 2019, but who knows what happens with that. I was surprised that Britt got in Riho’s face like that. I suppose she does have a point, AEW literally just hasn’t had Riho around that much, but isn’t Riho still with Stardom part time? I doubt if Britt turns Heel from this, but she sure isn’t Riho’s friend anymore. And with Riho facing Kris Statlander next week, and the obsession the Nightmare Collective has with Kris, expect shenanigans during that match for the anniversary episode.
Cody VS Darby was amazing, perhaps even better than their Fyter Fest match. Well, aside from Arn getting up not so much to interfere but to warn Cody. This keeps Darby strong in a way since Cody needed an assist of sorts, but Cody wins to stay strong for the sake of the “Is the Elite still elite?” story being told throughout tonight. Plus, the next step in his story with MJF is building now. MJF had a great promo, and in true Heel fashion, he stacks the deck on Cody. A Steel Cage match with the debuting Wardlow and ten belt lashes, that is going to be brutal for Cody, but you can bet it is all happening.
The twist in Hangman’s story is apparently a drinking problem, which is fine I suppose. He has been up and down both with winning, losing and his friends in The Elite, so this is definitely meant to be a down trend for him. The Elite VS Pac & Lucha Bros was amazing, but again, The Elite win in order for that story to go their way. It was a good touch for Cody to come out and Hangman to politely decline. With Hangman and Omega teaming up again, I would think the next phase in Hangman’s story is sparked. He might turn on Omega, abandon him, who knows, but that mystery and uncertainty is part of the fun. For Hangman to have come this far where he can be the guy to strike out on his own is actually a big thing in itself, and I’m sure AEW will make it worthwhile every step of the way.
My Score: 9.4/10

Jon Moxley speaks.
“Okay, let me see if I’ve got this right. The Young Bucks are the tag team champions, and they’re friends with Kenny, but Kenny’s friends with The Goody Brothers, and they’re the tag team champions, too. So now they’re all friends? They’re all one big happy family? How is that going to work? Is that going to work?” No it’s not. The Elite is like The Young & The Restless. And then there’s Death Triangle, PAC & The Lucha Brothers, who don’t like any part of The Elite. They don’t even like Moxley, because they used to be friends with Kingston who has beef with Mox. But now Moxley has to team with them at Beach Break?
Moxley is a simple guy. Cold beer, hot coffee, room temperature water and sex in the morning because it’s a great way to start the day. The only person you can trust is number one, so he only trusts his two hands. But Moxley loves Six Man Tags, so saddle up, compadres. This’ll be fun! Gang warfare! Moxley doesn’t know what happens at Beach Break, but it’ll be wild~! Incendiary ingredients on Dynamite, don’t blink or you’ll miss it.
Sting and Darby Allin speak.
The Icon says they’ll get on a first name basis right now. Taz, Brian, Ricky, since they’ll be in that Street Fight at Revolution, and since Team Taz loves to throw out false accusations, Sting will say their feelings are hurt. They called these two hoodlums? Really? Darby is a bit of a hoodlum, yes, but in the streets, it doesn’t matter if you play it clean or dirty. It’s all about survival! Darby chucks his skateboard through a window, and admits he is a hoodlum, no different from Sting. Sting uses the baseball bat to smash up the rest of the window! Sting admits it, too. Revolution, Street Fight, showtime.
Y2MJF w/ The Inner Circle VS The Varsity Blondes!
There’s a lot of history to this match, even before things in AEW. But Chris Jericho won’t hold back on Brian Pillman Jr. over it, and he expects nothing less from Pillman Jr. in return. But will that mean the first 2v2 outing of Le Demo God and the Salt of the Earth won’t be a success?
Jericho revels in the fans singing Judas for him, the teams sort out, and MJF wants to speak first. MJF wants to talk with Sammy Guevara later, and then he says is that Griff? Look at Goldilocks here. Last time they met, MJF embarrassed Griff on live television. So let’s just skip ahead to where Griff loses, okay? NOPE! Griff DECKS MJF, keeps him in the ring, then rains down more fists! MJF scrambles away, Wardlow keeps him away from Griff, but Griff gets around to get back in. MJF dodges but Griff BOOTS him down!

Winners: Y2MJF, by pinfall
MJF adds insult to injury as he throws BPJ out just so he can stand with Jericho. The Inner Circle’s “official” team in the tag division is off to a strong start, will they go all the way to the top and take the AEW World Tag Team Championships for their own?
“Here we go again!” Kenny Omega is taking liberties, acting like ‘Billy Big Bollocks,” acting like he owns the place and owns this business. He has the “clown” Callis and the Impact Wrestling Tag Team Champions, while manipulating some and blindsiding others. SO at Beach Break, bring the Good Brothers, because Pac and Rey Fenix will show you what brotherhood is! You hit them, they hit you back! Time to face the consequences!
AEW shares Shaq’s message from the AEW Dynamite Awards on TNT.
“Cody Rhodes, you little punk. You want to battle, you just name the time and the day. I’ll be there.” Cody looks like a little girl with that blonde hair. Shaq suggests we do this in March, aka Revolution. What will Cody say?
Tony Schiavone is in the ring!
To respond to Shaq’s comments right now, here’s Cody Rhodes! The American Nightmare goes to the ring, along with Coach Arn Anderson. Schiavone knows they want to respond to Shaq, but also to Jade Cargill from The Waiting Room. Cody says to respond to Shaq and Jade, he’d rather just give us the “pitch.” He’d like to say March 7th, AEW Revolution, it’d be himself and Brandi Rhodes VS Shaq & Jade, but life happens. He and Brandi are having a baby. “In these moments where I am rather confused and distracted,” Cody defers to The Coach!
And if we’re wondering how much of a coach Arn is, Arn chewed Cody out for taking Peter Avalon too easily last week. Arn has been right consistently for years, they talked with Tony Khan about where Cody fits on the Revolution card, so the floor is Arn’s. Arn says he wants to earn his money because he might contradict himself, so please be patient. But the fact is, Cody’s about to be a dad. That is right on the forefront of his mind, as it should be. That is the most important thing in his life.
But think about this: June 29th, 1985. What date is that to Cody? That was when Arn saw Dusty Rhodes crawl in the ring with Tully Blanchard, fight 30 minutes, then fly home in time to see the birth of Baby Cody. Now if Cody chooses March 7th, to jump in the Revolution, do it with eyes wide open, no regrets. But Arn will point out the obvious: there is a lot of time between the birthdate and the show. Doesn’t Cody want to be part of something? It’s hard to capture the public eye but he could do that with this match.
For 19 years, Shaq dominated the court as a world-class athlete. Jade, every time she walks in, she dominates that room. But the fact is, Arn’s seen something these last two weeks, something that can’t be measured or even rational to name. Arn wants Cody to see something. In steps RED VELVET! Velvet has had her own problems with Jade Cargill, and Arn hopes Cody sees the fire inside Velvet like what Cody has in him. Velvet gets the mic to stare down the camera and say she’s here because she is FED UP of getting attacked, watching Brandi get disrespected by a “big mouth coward” who knows Brandi can’t defend herself.
Everyone knows Cody would never lay a hand on a woman. But Velvet will! Velvet is about to stir that bitch-ass up! Fans like the sound of that! Arn says that’s what he meant! Then perhaps Jade and Shaq have the ball in their court! Are we still getting a huge mixed tag match for Revolution?
AEW issues the official invite to the Superbad Beach Break wedding!
Kip Sabian says “my heart is in my hands My head is in the clouds. My feet have left the ground. And my life, our life, is turning around.” Penelope Ford is so excited to marry this handsome man, the man of her dreams, the best kisser. So they cordially invite us to watch their wedding, with Miro as The Best Man, and of course “Charles” Taylor the butler will be there! Surely a wedding on a wrestling program will go smoothly, right?
Hangman Page VS Ryan Nemeth!
The Cowboy takes on the debuting “Hollywood Hunk” as Hangman tries to shake off the awkward situation where he had to reject The Dark Order’s recruitment proposal. Will he be able to focus against this hungry and determined wrestler?
The bell rings, fans rally for Hangman but Nemeth shoots in to get a leg. Hangman gets the rope but Nemeth says he got a point like this is collegiate wrestling. They tie up again, Hangman wrenches to a wristlock but Nemeth gets around to hammerlock then headlock, two points! Hangman powers out, Nemeth bumps him but Hangman runs him over! Things speed up, Hangman fakes Nemeth out and BOOTS him down! Hangman CHOPS Nemeth to the corner, CHOPS him again, then chops but Nemeth dodges to CHOP and CHOP in return! Nemeth swaggers about but Hangman DECKS him!
Hangman stalks Nemeth to a corner, stomps a mudhole into him then walks it dry as the ref counts. Hangman drags Nemeth up to throw him to the apron, and then TRIANGLE LARIATS him to the floor! Nemeth gets up but Hangman PLANCHAS! Direct hit and fans fire up! Hangman drags Nemeth up, puts him back in, then fires the fans up as he runs in corner to corner. Nemeth dodges to dropkick Hangman down! Cover, ONE! Nemeth wrenches and WRINGS the arm out, and now Big Money Matt Hardy is ringside? Is he scouting? Nemeth hammerlocks an arm, headstands to put pressure on the hold, then grabs at hair. The ref reprimands and Nemeth lets go.
Hangman gets up to CHOP and forearm but Nemeth knees low! Nemeth whips but Hangman holds ropes. Nemeth kicks, whips but Hangman reverses, only for Nemeth to turn it around into a Rude Awakening! Cover, TWO! Hangman forearms but Nemeth hits back. Nemeth whips corner to corner but Hangman comes back to CLOBBER him! Hangman whips, Nemeth dodges but Hangman hits a SPINEBUSTER! Hardy seems to be cheering Hangman on as Nemeth gets to a corner. Hangman runs corner to corner to clothesline! Hangman rolls Nemeth, runs, SLIDING LARIAT! Cover, TWO!

Hangman gets to a corner, Nemeth runs in but Hangman elbows him back! Nemeth runs into a boot, but he ducks a lariat to GERMAN SUPLEX! Hangman lands on his feet, ROLLING ELBOW! Hangman whips Nemeth to LARIAT! Then Hangman goes to the apron, takes aim, and slingshots, BUCK SHOT!! Cover, Hangman wins!
Winner: Hangman Page, by pinfall
Hardy applauds then goes up to the ramp. Hangman sees Hardy turn to leave but invites him into the ring. Tony Schiavone hurries over to see what this is about. Hardy didn’t want to create a scene, but the reason he came out was to be in Hangman’s corner and let him know he supports Hangman. Hardy has been a bit concerned, Hangman seems lost and conflicted. That’s understandable. Hardy was part of Stadium Stampede, he knows that Hangman got burned by The Elite and he didn’t deserve it. The Dark Order wants Hangman to join and that’s just awkward.
Hardy doesn’t want anything from Hangman, just to let him know that Hangman is a good person who deserves to be happy. Hardy needed to say that and Hangman needed to hear it. Hangman is dressing alone in the hallway near catering. Hardy has a huge dressing room with plenty of space. Hangman is more than welcome to join him there, no strings attached. Hardy lets Hangman think that over, what will Hangman’s answer be?
Jungle Boy w/ Jurassic Express VS Dax Harwood w/ Cash Wheeler & Tully Blanchard!
Though Marko Stunt, Luchasaurus and the rest of FTR are all ringside, things will be a little different than usual. To make sure Cash and Tully don’t interfere, they will be handcuffed not just to each other, but to Luchasaurus! Will the wrestling dinosaur be able to keep things fair and square?
First, the ref and security help cuff Cash and Tully to Luchasaurus per the agreement. Then they all take a seat, though Luchasaurus has to make Cash sit. The bell rings and JB stares down with Dax.

Will the friends of Jurassic Express avenge them against FTR?
Team Taz responds!
“So Sting, Darby, being that we’re on a first name basis and all, Ricky and Brian are ready to destroy you come Revolution.” But Will Hobbs and Hook notice something going on, and say hey to the merchandise guys. Wait, they have the Darby gear and Sting gear, but where are the Team Taz merchandise? They weren’t given any of that. Oh is that so? Hook and Hobbs start throwing hands! And then they start throwing the staff around! Cage and Starks get in on that too, and they tear down the Sting and Darby merch to tear it up!
“You want to disrespect us?! We ain’t done!” Cage TOSSES one of the guys against the truck! And Starks SLAMS another through the table! “First name basis, huh, brother? Ricky Starks and Brian Cage are gonna BEAT YOUR ASS in that Street Fight!”
Britt Baker w/ Rebel VS Shanna!
The Role Model is making sure she’s sharp for the grudge match with Thunder Rosa she never wanted. But Portugal’s Perfect Athlete has been slowly but surely powering up on AEW Dark! Will Shanna show that hosting The Waiting Room isn’t a replacement for getting in the ring?
The bell rings and Britt doesn’t take Shanna seriously in her DBZ inspired ring gear. The two circle, tie up, and Britt wrenches to a wristlock. Shanna spins, wrenches back and wristlocks. Britt slips through, waistlocks then snapmares to a chinlock. Shanna slips right out to wristlock again! Fans fire up with Shanna as she brings Britt up but Britt wrenches, elbow breakers and wristlocks. Shanna rolls, handsprings and wrenches back to drop toehold! Shanna dares Britt to get up, and Britt does, to power Shanna to a corner! The ref calls for the break, Britt lets off but then ROCKS Shanna! Britt wrenches, rolls Shanna and chicken wings to a chinbar!
Shanna rolls, wrenches, double arm-drags and then arm-drags again! Britt staggers into another arm-drag and then an enziguri! Fans fire up as Britt flounders to ropes! Shanna powers up but Rebel saves Britt from the Spirit Bomb Dropkick! The ref reprimands but Britt BLINDSIDES Shanna! And RAMS her into railing! And then RAMS her into the apron! The ref reprimands but Britt runs at Shanna, for a SLINGBLADE! Britt refreshes the ring count at 5 as AEW goes picture in picture.
Britt fetches Shanna into the ring, keeps her on the apron and drags her to the corner to pull the arm into the post! Rebel gives Shanna “a makeover” at the same time but the ref reprimands. Britt BOOTS Shanna back into the ring, then takes her time stalking Shanna with a sinister smirk. Shanna hits back with body shots but Britt DECKS her! Britt brings Shanna around, pulls her up by her hair and reels her in, but Shanna breaks free and rolls Britt up! TWO, and Britt kicks low to throw Shanna by her hair! Britt stands on Shanna’s face and digs her boot in but stomps as the ref counts.
Britt drags Shanna back up, cravats and cranks on the neck to then give Shanna knee after knee! Cover, ONE! Britt is surprised by that, but she drags Shanna up to SLAP her down, and AEW goes to break.
AEW returns and Shanna whips but Britt reverses. Shanna dodges to kick and throw Britt around! Shanna runs, Britt gets up, Shanna CLOBBERS her! Cover, TWO! Shanna keeps her cool as she brings Britt back up. Shanna underhooks but Britt resists to spin out and kick a leg out! Britt hits a gator roll, then drags Shanna around and into a ghost pin, TWO! SUPERKICK! Britt drags Shanna back up, reels her in, FISHERMAN SCREW! Cover, TWO! Shanna survives and Britt is upset. Britt has Rebel give her the glove, and then she stalks over to Shanna. Britt turns Shanna over, but Shanna turns the Rings into a cover, TWO! STUNNER!!
Fans fire up for Shanna as Britt goes to ropes. Shanna powers up again, runs and hits the SPIRIT DROPKICK! Shanna reels Britt back in but Rebel distracts! Britt gets around to drag Shanna down to the Rings of Saturn, and then the LOCKJAW!! Shanna taps, Britt wins!
Winner: Britt Baker, by submission
Give the assistant the assist, The Doctor takes the win by the skin of Shanna’s teeth. But she’s not done, she sits Shanna up and gives her the SURFBOARD STOMP! Britt then drags Shanna back into the LOCKJAW!! But here comes THUNDER ROSA!! Britt lets Shanna go so she and Rebel can retreat! Rosa runs them off, but there won’t be any running at Beach Break! Will Rosa’s wrath break Britt once and for all?
MJF finds Sammy Guevara backstage.
He just wants a moment, and says he did NOT tell Wardlow to get involved in last week’s Triple Threat Tag. Wardlow is literally the worst employee MJF has ever had, he docked Wardlow’s pay. No money for War Dog, and MJF promises that it’ll never happen again. Sammy asks if MJF is done. Does MJF think Sammy is stupid? Sammy sees what’s going on, even though MJF has everyone else fooled. Congratulations, though, on being a great manipulator. One of the best, really. Round of applause! Hats off to MJF. But Sammy sees what MJF is up to. Is that so? Yes, it is.
MJF asks Sammy if he really wants to play it this way. Sammy isn’t playing. The two stare down, but MJF backs away. Will the differences between these two be what tears The Inner Circle apart?
AEW sets the field for the Beach Break Tag Team Battle Royal!
Top Flight, Private Party, Jurassic Express, FTR, The Acclaimed, The Dark Order’s Evil Uno & Stu Grayson, and ALL THREE duos within The Inner Circle, are in the match for a shot at the titles at Revolution! But surprisingly, so are The Young Bucks! That means if Matt & Nick Jackson win, they choose who they face at the PPV! Will the Bucks take their fate into their own hands?
AEW also sets some of the Women’s World Championship Eliminator Tournament First Round matches!
NWA Women’s World Champion, Serena Deeb, takes on the returning and inaugural AEW Women’s Champion, Riho! What a powerful first match in a surely star-studded bracket! Who else from both the United States and Japan will be competing for a shot at Hikaru Shida?
Backstage interview with “The Elite!”
Dasha knows it has been five YEARS since these four have been in a ring together, how are they feeling? Karl Anderson says for the first time in those five years, it is a “full blown Bullet Club Party!” Tonight, they take out the Dark Order and what else? #BigLG says if we’re gonna Biz Cliz, then they gotta Biz Cliz softly! Gyrate! Then next week at Beach Break, they BEAT UP REY FENIX! BEAT UP PAC! And their favorite thing ever, BEAT UP JON MOXLEY! So pumped up! Are the Bucks down? Oh yeah, just as pumped, just as jazzed, but uh… Just as long as “that mark stooge, Creepy Uncle Don” doesn’t get involved.
Whoa, c’mon, now, Young Bizzles, you gotta understand. Relax about Donaconda. Last week, they and Kenny took out Pentagon for them! That was all Don’s idea. Well no one asked you guys to do that! But now Kenny Omega himself walks in, and he high fives the Good Brothers. Is he interrupting something? Sorta. Well maybe they need to talk about something later. Callis comes by with a BIG bandage on his face! What is that? Hey, we all know the Bucks assaulted him- No they did not! Take that off! Omega gets the Bucks to leave Callis alone and the music hits, it’s time for the main event!
8 Man Tag: The Young Bucks & The Good Brothers VS The Dark Order!
The AEW World and Impact Wrestling Tag Team Champions are joining forces, but it’s not exactly a happy reunion of The Bullet Club. A lot of the tension and drama comes from the fact Don Callis is in Kenny Omega’s ear and trying to direct his life. Will Matt & Nick be able to work with Gallows & Anderson against Uno, Stu, Reynolds & Silver?
The teams sort out, and Uno starts against Machine Gun. They tie up, go around, Anderson wrenches to a wristlock but Uno slips through to headlock. Anderson powers out, but Uno runs him over! Uno brushes off, things speed up and Anderson leaps into an atomic drop! Roll up, TWO!! Anderson gets away but Uno stomps a hand! Uno bends fingers, wrenches the wrist then tags in Silver! Anderson gets away but Number 4 calls out the big man! Johnny Hungy for some Doc Gallows and Gallows tags in! Gallows laughs at Silver, and calls for a test of strength just out of reach. Silver gets face to… well, chest, with Gallows, but Gallows kneels to be on Silver’s level! Sliver fires off forearms!
Silver fires up, runs but Anderson gets a cheap shot in! And then blames it on Nick! Silver DECKS Nick, Gallows ROCKS Silver! Gallows tags in Matt, they mug Silver, then Matt throws haymakers. Matt rakes Silver’s back, whips him to ropes but Silver holds ropes! Reynolds tags in, they bait Matt in to shoulder and slingshot sunset flip! Matt slips out, Reynolds runs and flying elbows! And then dropkicks! Reynolds kicks up and fans fire up as he goes after Matt with forearms! Reynolds whips, Nick tags in and Matt slides under to whip back, Double hip toss and handspring dropkicks from Bucks to Reynolds! Then double dropkicks for Uno!
Nick SHINING WIZARDS Reynolds, BULLDOG DROPKICK COMBO! Nick drags Reynolds up, whips him to a corner, then tags in Anderson. Anderson tags in Gallows, the Club blasts the Dark Order, then Nick whips Matt to forearm Reynolds! Nick adds a clothesline, Anderson adds the rocket kick, then Gallows corner splashes! Back suplex to the ALLEY OOP and the neckbreaker! It’s just like old times as they all Too Sweet! Gallows drags Reynolds to the corner, tags Matt in and Matt brings Reynolds up. Reynolds fires off hands in return, runs, but Anderson trips him up! Matt runs but Uno trips him up! It’s all fair isn’t it?
Reynolds scrambles, Nick gets his legs but Reynolds kicks him away! Tag to Stu and he springboard crossbodies! Stu dropkicks Gallows’ legs out, dodges Matt and dropkicks again! Nick gets in, misses, and Stu counters superkick to a leg hook and HALF ‘N’ HALF! Anderson gets in to hit Stu and throws him out but Stu ROCKS him back! Stu springboards to dropkick Gallows! Anderson runs into an URENAGE! Stu keeps moving as he goes to a corner and climbs up! FROG SPLASH! Cover, TWO!! Anderson survives but Stu drags Anderson up to the corner. Tag to Uno as AEW goes picture in picture.
Uno and Stu get Anderson up but Gallows distracts! The ref also says he didn’t see Uno tag in so he’s not legal! Anderson shoves Stu into Gallows’ fireman’s carry and FLAPJACK! Gallows exits as Anderson covers, TWO! Anderson keeps Stu down, tags in Nick and Nick stomps Stu. Nick drags Stu up, snapmares him then tags in Mat. Fist drop and senton combo! Matt brings Stu up, snap suplexes him, then covers, TWO! Matt keeps on Stu with a chinlock and grinds him down. Stu endures, fights up and throws body shots, but Matt bumps him off buckles! Tag to Gallows and Gallows throws heavy hands from all sides!
Tag to Nick, Gallows and Nick mug Stu, and Nick DECKS Stu with a right! Nick clamps on with a facelock and he grinds Stu down. Stu endures, fights back up, throws body shots, but Nick clubs him! Nick whips, but Stu catches Nick to a fireman’s carry, and SWINGING FACEBUSTER! The Bullet Club gets in to BLAST the Dark Order corner again, stranding Stu! Matt and the Good Brothers mug Uno and the Beaver Boys, then they all set up by the apron! But Uno, Reynolds and Silver slip out of the triple apron bombs to RAM all three men into railing!
AEW returns to single picture as Nick snapmares Stu and runs, only for Stu to duck the Penalty Kick! Kip up and PELE! Stu crawls, hot tag to Silver! Silver rallies on Nick with big clotheslines! Silver whips, back drops Nick and fires up! Nick hobbles around, Silver whips him again but Nick holds ropes. Silver runs in, Nick puts him on the apron but Silver sees him go up the corner and GAMANGIRIS him down! Silver then CANNONBALLS into Anderson, BLASTS Gallows and BOOTS Matt!! Silver gets in but Nick catches him for a backslide. Silver slips out to fire off kicks and then a BRAIN BUSTER! Cover, TWO!! Nick survives but fans say “This is Awesome!”
Tag to Uno, he brings Nick up to a fireman’s carry but Nick slips out! Uno blocks the kick, hands it to the ref and hits a neckbreaker! Uno hurries up top now, and SWANTON FLOPS! Tag to Matt, he shoulders into Uno then slides under. Matt gets around Stu, and gets both the OG for a NORTHERN LIGHTS! The Beaver Boys attack, whip but Matt dodges to DOUBLE LARIAT! Matt is fired up now and he runs to clothesline Silver! Then one for Reynolds! One for Silver but he dodges to KICK! ROLLING ELBOW, ENZIGURI, STUNNER, GERMAN! The Beaver Blitz! Uno and Stu hit FATALITY!! Cover, but Anderson breaks it!!
Good Brothers brawl with Beaver Boys and throw them out, then Uno tags Stu! Nick SUPERKICKS Uno then SUPERKICKS Stu! Nick builds speed as the Dark Order regroups, for the ESCALARA! Nick brings Stu up, Anderson has Reynolds, DOUBLE APRON BOMB! No wait, TRIPLE because Gallows does the same to Silver! They put Stu in, Bucks and Good Brothers line up the shot, “TOO SWEET!” QUADRUPLE SUPERKICK!! Cover, but Uno breaks it!! Uno saves the match but Gallows ROCKS him! MAGIC KILLER! The Bucks have Stu, gut wrench and springboard, MELZTER DRIVER!! Cover, the Elite wins!
Winners: The Young Bucks & The Good Brothers, by pinfall
Whether you like it or not, the Bullet Club boys took down The Dark Order as a unified unit! And Matt gets the mic to say that next week at Beach Break, whoever wins the Tag Team Battle Royal gets a shot at the AEW World Tag titles at Revolution! But if you haven’t heard, the Bucks are in that match, too! That means if they win, they handpick whoever they want to face! And think about it. It could be anyone. They look at the Good Brothers, and the Good Brothers Too Sweet that idea! But then REY FENIX gets in and springboards to missile dropkick the Bucks!
The Good Brothers attack Fenix and drag him up, but Fenix fights out of Magic Killer! And Moxley is here to CLOBBER Gallows! Fenix FLIES to take Anderson out! And some railing, too! But Omega rushes in to go after Moxley, only to get a kick and the PARADIGM SHIFT!! The Elite were standing tall, but the Maniac and the Firebird fired the first shots! Will they and Pac avenge Penta El Zero M on the road to Revolution?
A great episode that was both go-home to Beach Break but also a step towards Revolution in March. Archer VS Kingston was good but one-sided until The Fam came out with Jake the Snake as their hostage. Kingston wins to extend the feud, I have a feeling the blow-off, in whatever form it takes, will be for Revolution. While Death Triangle is focused on The Elite, I think they can easily circle back to The Fam for the PPV and have something really wild. Sting and Darby had a decent promo, Team Taz had a decent promo in response, but the build just hasn’t felt that exciting for what it’s setting up. I hope the Street Fight is really, really good to make up for some of that.
Y2MJF VS Varsity Blondes was a lot of fun, and there was a lot of energy with The Inner Circle all ringside to have their parts to play. Naturally Y2MJF wins, they can’t lose their first time in a 2v2. Though it is an interesting move for AEW to put all the combinations, from Y2MJF to Sammy-Hager to Santana-Ortiz in the battle royal. I suppose AEW as a company doesn’t have to follow the Inner Circle’s self-imposed edict, but that perhaps means the Inner Circle all work together until the end, where in theory, MJF and Jericho would want the other two teams to bow out and eliminate themselves. The tension between MJF and Sammy will surely keep that from happening, so maybe we get the Inner Circle break-up already.
It makes a lot of sense for Red Velvet to take Brandi’s place in what was obviously going to be the mixed tag of the Nightmare Family VS Shaq & Jade. Velvet was tied into the story with Brandi, Jade and the Vicious Vixens, so this is a very good adjustment. Hangman VS Nemeth was good but a bit of a shame that it was really just the vehicle towards a story of Hardy and Hangman. I wonder if Private Party will have a part to play in this, such as warning Hangman about the ridiculous manager contracts Hardy put on them. And I would think The Dark Order also plays a part in that story since they still want Hangman for them, and maybe by Revolution, we learn who Hangman joins.
Jungle Boy VS Dax Harwood was an incredible match! Might have even been match of the night because of how close it was. There was great character work and story with Luchasaurus going back and forth with Cash and Tully, and great everything with JB and Dax in the ring. JB winning is big, but then FTR takes Luchasaurus’ horns to stand tall in their own way. With the battle royal determining Revolution challengers, there’s still a lot of story for Jurassic Express and FTR to have, and maybe the blow-off winners get their shot at say Fyter Fest or maybe Double or Nothing.
Britt VS Shanna was a good match, but of course Britt as a Heel needs Rebel to help her. That does help keep Shanna strong in a way, but Britt goes in with the momentum against Rosa. Rebel is probably how Britt wins against Rosa, too, and that could get Britt a spot in the Women’s Championship Eliminator Tournament. Serena Deeb VS Riho being announced as a first round match up is great, but that honestly feels like it should’ve been a later round match. At the same time, Serena has her own title to fall back on, so it’s probably just the best possible way to get eyes on this tournament and to get Riho back into things in AEW.
We got a lot of great stuff out of the story with Omega and The Elite. Moxley had a good promo, Pac had a really good promo, and the promo before the main event was great. Callis is definitely faking or at least exaggerating what happened with him and the Bucks just to get Omega to turn against them. And so far, Bucks and Good Brothers being on good terms is the right move to me. The issue is with Callis, not them, but perhaps when push comes to shove, Gallows & Anderson take Callis’ side.
At the same time, I like that the Bucks already teased a match with Good Brothers for tag titles, that’s a good tease for Revolution. Moxley and Fenix going after The Elite to stand tall probably means Omega and Good Brothers stand tall at Beach Break to further the Bullet Club Civil War between AEW and Impact, but I wonder if any other former Club members get involved. Will Hangman have a change of heart and rejoin The Elite? Will Cody at least be asked? Will someone from Bullet Club NJPW show up in AEW to also establish that crossover? The various possibilities are all really fun so hopefully we get that going into the Summer.
My Score: 9.3/10

The Walk Off: “Pretty” Peter Avalon VS Lee Johnson, Guest Judges: Brandi Rhodes, Jerry Lynn, and Aubrey Edwards!
The Pageant Provocation has taken a new form! Avalon challenged Big Shotty to this contest of style and grace, but will he end up the one losing?
The judges are already on stage as Justin Roberts introduces the concept’s rules. The three “pretty” judges will watch as each man, with one stylish outfit each, will take 10 steps down the runway, pose, then walk back those 10 steps. The winner will be determined by Brandi, Jerry and Aubrey. But then Avalon walks out and wants Justin to let him handle those introductions himself. Obviously we have Brandi Rhodes, who was an international model on magazine covers, and now is a pregnant mother to be. Avalon believes that makes her a MILF: A Mother I’d Like to Forget. Then there’s Aubrey Edwards, AEW’s premier female referee, but wait shouldn’t she be in the Kentucky Derby? And lastly, Jerry F’N Lynn! He’s like Spinal Tap, brings it to an 11, he is beautiful. Avalon’s standards are weird.
But anyway, with Avalon out here, Big Shotty makes his entrance! Despite the loss earlier tonight, Johnson cleans up nice in his suit, slacks and shoes. Johnson will start us off with his 10 step strut on the red carpet. He hits the pose, does a spin even, and then walks back up the red carpet. Fans are on his side, but the judges give their scores. Aubrey has a 9, Brandi has a 9, and Jerry has a 9! All nines across the board, so Avalon will have to get at least one 10 to win.
Avalon takes off the robe to show off his own shining smoking jacket. PPA struts his stuff, stutters a step, but strikes the pose and unbuttons the jacket. Avalon struts his way back, and now for the judges’ scores. Aubrey says a 9, Brandi says a 9. And Jerry says a… Wait, he wants a replay? The production team puts it on the titantron, and yes, Jerry saw it, too! The stutter step! That will have to affect his scoring. Jerry hates to do this, but it’s not a 9, but a 6!! Johnson wins!!
Winner: Lee Johnson
Avalon is furious that he lost his own concept! And then CEZAR BONONI shows up to DECK Johnson!? Avalon likes that! Avalon adds on stomps but Jerry Lynn steps up to defend Johnson! PPA may be a sore loser, but will Big Shotty get payback for that cheap shot?

Santana fireman’s carries, Ortiz runs in, DEATH VALLEY NECKBREAKER COMBO! Santana DECKS Ryzin while Ortiz covers, PNP wins!!
Winners: Santana & Ortiz, by pinfall
That win was faster than a speeding bullet! But sadly, being the fifth ranked team in AEW doesn’t matter anymore if #Y2MJF is the official team of the Inner Circle. Will Santana and Ortiz take out every other tag team to prove a point to Jericho?

Jaz CLUBS Vance, stomps the bad leg, then pushes Vance around. Jaz grabs the leg for a cover, TWO! High stack, TWO! Jaz drags Vance to the ropes to drop down on the leg!

The Dark Order is fired up, and Negative One goes to the ring to celebrate, by giving Jaz a kendo stick smack! Brian Pillman Jr. gets in to defend Jaz, and it’s a duel between kendo stick and… lacrosse stick? Negative One is a small target, though, and he SMACKS BPJ in the stomach! Negative One goes after BPJ more with smack after smack, after smack! He even uses BPJ’s own lacrosse stick to choke BPJ! Preston Vance pulls Negative One away from BPJ! Will the Dark Order show no mercy as they look to take over AEW?
Red Velvet VS Madi Wrenkowski!
Things have been bittersweet for Red Velvet lately, but there’s always a chance to rebound! Will Velvet be serving up a fresh L tonight?
Negative One surprisingly returns to commentary, having calmed down from just a moment ago. The bell rings and the two circle to tie up. They go around, break, and Madi mocks Velvet’s height. Velvet and Madi tie up again, they go around, Madi puts Velvet in a corner. The ref calls for the break, Velvet kicks then runs but Madi runs her over!

The “Town Business” is booming and Hobbs has another win! Will Hobbs continue to manhandle the mere mortals put before him?
A good AEW Dark, with a handful of highlights. For one, Fenix VS Baron Black was a great match, and a great showing for Baron, even in losing. Then, for The Walk Off sounding so goofy, AEW managed to do it so well that it was actually a lot of fun. Plus, I like that they used Avalon losing to bring Bononi into something. I wonder if Avalon and Bononi become a new tag team with the “we’re good looking” gimmick. Maybe a match with Avalon and Bononi can be how the team of Johnson and Solow get their first win in AEW.
Another highlight, surprisingly, was Negative One being on commentary and running around. He was a pretty fun part of Vance’s, Velvet’s and Limelight’s matches. And I haven’t been keeping up with Being the Elite, but I guess there’s something brewing between him and Pillman Jr. I do appreciate that AEW does a great job of integrating every layer of their media, from Dynamite to Dark to now BTE, it’s just on us fans to try and keep up. I feel like Negative One should become the BTE Champion (apparently that’s a thing now) so he can plug that on Dark and Dynamite for those who aren’t keeping up.
My Score: 8.1/10
