AEW World Tag Team Championship #1 Contender’s Fatal 4 Way: The Young Bucks VS Hangman Page & Kenny Omega VS Proud ‘n’ Powerful VS Best Friends!

Bash at the Beach starts off red hot with this massive tag match! Frankie Kazarian and Scorpio Sky are still the first and only AEW World Tag Team Champions, but one incredible team will be cruising! Matt & Nick Jackson, the Cowboy & The Cleaner, Santana & Ortiz or Chuckie T & #JustTrent. Which dynamic duo will party hard in Miami as contenders?

The teams sort out and Trent starts against Nick at the bell. They circle, tie up, Nick headlocks but Trent powers out. Nick bumps with Trent but Trent stays up. Nick tries agian but Trent bounces him off. Nick tries a third time, gets Trent to move but Trent comes back to run Nick over! Trent flexes then CHOPS. Trent whips but Nick rolls off his back to CHOP and “LUCHA~ LIBRE!” Arm-drag! Trent dodges, Nick dodges, repeat! The fans fire up for the stand off! Hangman wants a tag and Nick tags to him while Chuckie tags in off Trent. Fans fire up for “Cowboy Sh*t!” as Hangman and Chuckie tie up. Hangman headlocks, Chuckie powers out but Hangman runs him over. Things speed up, Chuckie hurdles then jumps over Hangman. Hangman kips up and scoops Chuckie for a Fall Away slam!

Kip up and tag to Omega, but Chuckie tags to Matt Jackson! Elite friends face off but fans are fired up for Kenny. The friends fist bump and tie up. But PNP rush in and take them down! Fans boo as Santana and Ortiz take out the rest of the Elite. Best Friends back away to avoid the scrum, and Ortiz makes Matt tag Santana. Santana CHOPS Omega but Omega fires back. The two brawl, Omega getting the edge. Santana knees low, CHOPS, then whips. Nick tags in. Omega full nelsons but Santana fights out. Nick hits Santana, Omega tilt-o-whirl backbreaker and Nick adds his double stomps! The Elite are working together just on instinct! Omega covers, but Nick pulls him off. This is the only thing they won’t work together on.

Ortiz tags in and eye pokes both Nick and Omega! But he runs into kicks, Matt tags in, Kotaro Krusher gut buster! Then Matt adds on the swinging neckbreaker to backbreaker! Again, Elite working together out of old habits, but fans love it. The only one not having fun is Hangman. Trent tags in off Ortiz to CHOP Matt! Trent whips, Nick tags in, Matt ducks and whips Trent, the Bucks double hip toss to back flip dropkicks! Nick brings Trent to the Bucks corner to tag in Matt. The Bucks mug Trent and then whip Trent in. Trent tumbles up then back down, into Matt’s Northern Lights! Float over, another Northern Lights! The Polar Express is here! Matt keeps going, and going, but Trent counters to a TORNADO DDT!

Miami is fired up as Matt and Trent crawl. Chuckie tags in and gives Matt a belly2belly! Nick runs in, to get SLICED BREAD! Matt returns, POP-UP BOMB! Ortiz breaks the cover! Chuckie throws Ortiz out hard and fires up with Miami. Matt throws hands on Chuckie, then runs, but Trent tags in. Trent catches Matt, Sole Food Half ‘n’ Half! Omega checks on Matt, but the Best Friends… get attacked by Santana! No hugs here. Ortiz hits Omega and Page, then joins Santana in bringing Trent up. They put Trent in their corner, tag in off Trent, then scrape him out. PNP targets Matt and double whip but Matt counters and whips Santana at Ortiz. Ortiz goes up and over and monkey flips Santana to CUTTER Matt! Enziguri and BOOT, then Tu Lo Sabe! Step-stool moonsault! Ortiz DIVES onto the rest of the Elite! Santana FLIES onto Best Friends!

Miami is thunderous for “A E DUB! A E DUB!” as PNP take control. Ortiz stands on Matt a la Jericho, TWO! “This is Awesome!” and it’s just the first match! Ortiz stomps Matt around and rakes the back. Rawr. Ortiz brings Matt over, tags to Santana, snap suplex and slingshot senton! Fans boo as Santana flexes, but Santana brings Matt up for another suplex. Uno Amigo! Another suplex, Dos Amigos! Santana wants tres, and holds onto it! Tag to Ortiz, and Santana hands Matt off for Ortiz to hold up. Tres Amigos! Ortiz shimmies like Eddie then sucker punches Nick. Tag back to Santana, PNP whip Matt to their corner. Ortiz runs in but is put on the apron. Matt SPEARS Santana! Fans rally up but Ortiz trips up Nick to deny the tag! Santana hits Best Friends to keep them out.

Santana whips Matt, Matt boots back then goes up, corkscrew STUNNER! Both men are down but Matt heads for the other Elite corner! Hot tag to… Matt thinks about it, and chooses Omega!

Matt climbs up as fans fire up, but Trent CHOPS Matt first. Trent clubs Matt then climbs up from the outside. Things are getting crazy and fans can feel it. Trent has Matt up, to SUPERPLEX him onto the others! Fans are losing their minds over that one! Teams regroup from the wreckage, and the legal men of Omega and Trent get back in the ring. Trent runs and hits a PSYCHO KNEE! Trent drags Omega back up, Alabama but Omega fights out. Omega clubs Trent hard, reels him in, but Chuckie saves Trent from a suplex. Best Friends work together but Hangman evens the numbers. The two teams fight over the double suplex, and the ref gets a heel in the face!

Incredible! Shocking! Matt and Nick can’t believe it, but Omega calms them down. Will this new combination within The Elite be what takes the gold from SCU?

 

The American Nightmare is here!

Cody Rhodes is Miami Vice as he heads to the ring, with plans to respond to MJF’s challenge. Miami is fired up to see him as he gets a mic. “Double A, Arn Anderson, was right when he said that the audience wants this match.” Cody came out arrogantly and self-righteous, and he asked MJF what it would take to have the match. MJF has named his price and it’s “rather expensive.” The AEW Revolution graphics are used to review the stipulations put forward. Starting from the bottom, Cody must have a Steel Cage against MJF’s muscle, Wardlow. The strategy would be such a violent match will take a tole on Cody and soften him up, but it is a surprise. Cody has been in tag teams, factions and such, so he knows when someone is trying to overshadow you. Cody’s conclusion is that after we see Wardlow speak, wrestle and fight, maybe he shouldn’t be carrying MJF’s bags, but MJF should be carrying Wardlow’s. Fans taunt MJF with chants of “Bag Boy!”

Then the controversial second stipulation, Cody must take ten belt lashes on live national television. To whip him. Cody knows the symbolism, but if MJF thinks that making Cody bleed, that is the worst thing, that is flat wrong. And finally, Cody can’t touch MJF until Revolution. Cody doesn’t need to touch MJF, he lives rent free in MJF’s head. We all know what MJF is doing: he is stalling! MJF wants to be famous by any means necessary, he found something he was halfway decent at, and then clings to his tiny bit of internet fame when fans call him a “real, true, old school Heel.” But MJF isn’t old school, he is lazy! So when it comes to the cage, Cody accepts! When it comes to not touching MJF, Cody accepts! And yes, even when it comes to 10 lashes live on Dynamite, Cody accepts! Cody knows what it means to have this match at Revolution. It means Cody failed as a mentor. But Cody will teach MJF that this isn’t the MJF story but a chapter in the Rhodes legacy! Who is left coming out of this the one with a scar story to tell?

 

Joey Janela speaks.

“2020. A new year, clean slate, a new decade for the Bad Boy.” And what happens? Homecoming for AEW and the first time we see his pretty face, he gets punched in the balls by his ex, Penelope Ford. Joey told her that he didn’t want anything to do with her. But they know the only way she can create buzz for herself is on his name. Now she walks around like hot stuff with her hot new side piece, Kip Sabian. If Superbad wants to play, Janela will play. Cross the line and let’s see what happens. But Janela was getting hit in the balls by his win-loss records. He goes up against Fenix next week with something to prove. Guys like Janela are the backbone in AEW, but things gotta change. Fenix VS Janela, Janela promises to show everyone why everyone else says he’s a “bad, bad boy.” Will things go well for Janela out at sea? Or will it be a bad, bad time?

 

The Nightmare Collective w/ Luther VS Kris Statlander & Hikaru Shida!

Brandi Rhodes & Melanie Cruise see their first bit of action in AEW against a stellar team of the Galaxy’s Greatest Alien and the Stardom Samurai! Will this match be out of this world? Or will Statlander and Shida be brought back down to Earth?

But as Shida makes her entrance, Luther stands in her way. Shida warns him with her kendo stick, but Brandi and “Mel” mug Statlander! Shida SMACKS Luther out of her way and hurries to the ring. The referee reprimands the Collective but Shida scares them off with her kendo stick. Mel comes around to clobber Shida and the match begins!

Mel throws Shida around the ring, and towers over Shida as she throws big forearms. Mel whips Shida corner to corner but Shida goes up and over. Shida huricanranas and Mel bails out. Kris takes care of Mel with a mule kick, then the moonsault! Shida brings out a chair, and fans know what this is for. Shida sets the chair up and Kris holds it in place. Shida uses the chair to launch and KNEE Mel down! The chair is put away as Kris and Shida high-five. They put Mel in the ring and then double dropkick her down! Shida covers, TWO! Shida drags Mel up and fans rally as she tries to suplex. Mel is too big for that so Shida kicks and whips. Mel reverses but Shida holds ropes. Shida kicks Mel back but Brandi swipes at her. Shida swings on Brandi but she gets clear, and Mel BOOTS Shida down!

Fans boo as Mel drops a leg on Shida! Tag to Brandi and she kicks Shida while she’s down. Cover, TWO! Brandi stomps Shida more then soaks up the heat. Brandi puts Shida against the ropes to grind a boot in, but the ref counts. Brandi argues with the ref but he reminds her who the authority in the match is. Brandi taunts Kris and Kris takes the bait, the ref has to keep Kris back and the Collective mug Shida! Brandi fakes the tag and Mel grinds her boot into Shida. The ref counts but Mel lets up at 4. Fans rally up and Shida fights back. Shida throws hands but Mel throws her down by her hair! Shida gets to ropes but fans rally. Mel puts Shida on the ropes to pull her against them as AEW goes to break.

AEW returns and Mel has Shida in a dragon sleeper, for a standing leg drop! Cover, TWO! Mel keeps her cool as she drags Shida up and suplexes. Shida blocks and fights back with body shots.

Shida gets Mel out of the ring but they brawl, and Mel throws Shida into the railing!

Cover, ONE! Shida Shining Wizards Mel! Kris moonsaults! Brandi slips through to break the cover! Shida throws Brandi out and Kris scoops Mel. Mel powers out, shoves Kris into Shida and double clotheslines them down! Mel scoops Kris, but Kris reverses to her gut wrench, tuck and BIG BANG! Cover, Kris & Shida win!

Winners: Kris Statlander & Hikari Shida, Statlander pinning

The two top contenders take down the Nightmare Collective! But this may only be one battle. Who wins the war of the Women’s Division?

 

The Dark Order has another presenation.

“To date, we have taken in literally thousands of potential new recruits, all interested in what The Dark Order can offer them.” As for their key recruits, well, it’s taking longer than expected. Michael Nakazawa is on their list! He is curious because of the frustrations as a subordinate. And Kenny Omega? His circle of trust is very small, it’ll be a longer process. But perhaps with Nakazawa, it can work. The Exalted One is pleased.

Next is Brandon Cutler, friend to the Young bucks. Cutler has been on a losing streak so he hopes to turn things around. The Dark Order need to convince Cutler that they can help him more than The Elite can. Then there’s Hangman Page. The Elite had high hops but he has grown distant. Uno and Grayson appraise him highest of all. Then they shall continue to cast doubt on the Elite to show they are not as powerful as the Dark Order. Will the Dark Order’s mission of conversion succeed?

 

Jon Moxley VS Sammy Guevara!

The stakes for this match were raised when it was announced that Chris Jericho’s Rock ‘n’ Wrestling Rager at Sea 2: The Second Wave would have a #1 contender’s match! But that match needs to be determined tonight, and the first part comes from the Maniac taking on Jericho’s Spanish God! Will Sammy get revenge for the Inner Circle by denying Moxley a path to the title? Or is Moxley about to get a free trip to the Bahamas to add to that Ford GT is tricked Jericho out of?

While AEW is picture in picture, Sammy has his cue cards! “Let me address an act! An act so heinous, so diabolical, so despicable, it has cause me (Sammy G) to develop an ulcer, and a need to take antacid tablets! I’m too young for that! Jon Moxley!  In order to get the car, you had to join us! You set us up! And a fraud! The Inner Circle made you an offer! Your refusal was your biggest mistake!” AEW goes to break before Sammy finishes, but it’s pretty clear Sammy wants to make Moxley pay for that mistake. Will Sammy bash Moxley at Bash at the Beach?

AEW returns as Sammy vlogs and fans taunt him with chants of “Moxley! Moxley!” They say his name, and here he is, in the Ford GT! The Death Rider is riding in style now, will he be cruising into the Cruise of Jericho?

The bell rings and Sammy dropkicks Mox! Sammy fires off in the corner and grinds his knee in. The ref reprimands but Sammy keeps on Moxley with CHOPS! Moxley glares and puts Sammy in the corner to CHOP! And CHOP! Then Moxley has Sammy in another corner to CHOP again! Moxley whips Sammy but Sammy goes up and over and mocks the Fargo strut, only to turn around into Moxley’s lariat! Moxley drags Sammy up and snapmares for a swift kick to the back. Moxley drops elbows and covers, ONE. Moxley drags Sammy up and puts him in a corner to grind a boot in. The ref counts but Moxley holds on until 4. Moxley whips Sammy, Sammy reverses and shoulders in to then enziguri and springboard CUTTER!

Moxley bails out but Sammy builds speed to FLY! Direct hit with the tope conjilo and Sammy blows a kiss to the booing fans. Sammy puts Moxley back in and goes up top. Sammy builds up energy before he hops down and struts. Moxley SLAPS Sammy down! Moxley aims from a corner as Sammy rises, to get the REGAL KNEE! Moxley suplexes to X-PLEX! Cover, TWO!! Sammy survives but Moxley keeps his cool. Moxley slashes the throat to say he’s ending this. Moxley drags Sammy to the apron and underhooks, but Sammy fights out to boot back! Sammy hops up top and METEORAS Moxley into the apron!! Sammy drags Moxley up to throw into railing! Sammy throws Moxley into steel steps, too!

Sammy leaves Moxley behind and spins, but fans boo. Sammy fetches Moxley back into the ring and Penalty Kicks him down! Cover, TWO! Moxley keeps in this as AEW goes picture in picture.

Sammy wraps Moxley up in a chinlock but Moxley fights his way up. Moxley back suplexes but Sammy lands on his feet to drop toehold Moxley onto ropes. Sammy stands on Moxley to choke him, but he lets up at the count of 4, back flipping just because he can. Then he kicks the ropes to jam Moxley! Sammy covers, TWO! Sammy drags Moxley up and fireman’s carries, doing squats to show off more. Samoan Drop, cover, TWO! Sammy kicks Moxley sharp in the back! Moxley crawls to ropes but Sammy drags him up. The ref counts as Sammy pulls Moxley against ropes, and then Sammy uppercuts Moxley in the back. Sammy bumps Moxley off buckles and Moxley falls to the floor! Sammy goes out, swaggering about as he takes a fan’s popcorn to throw it at Moxley!

Sammy goes to bump Moxley off more steel steps but Moxley blocks and punches back! Moxley throws big forearms on Sammy, but Sammy throws Moxley into a post! Sammy gets mad now as he puts Moxley in the ring. Sammy climbs up top but Moxley is up! Moxley rocks Sammy with a haymaker then climbs up to join him. Moxley SUPERPLEXES Sammy down! Both men are down but writhing as AEW returns to single picture.

Fans rally and Moxley fires off elbows from all sides! Moxley runs but Sammy hurdles and flips. Moxley waistlocks and German Suplexes, but Sammy lands on his feet for a Shooting Star! Cover, TWO, and Sammy rains down angry rights. Sammy aims from a corner as Moxley stands, but Moxley dodges to chicken wing. Sammy victory roll counters, TWO!

Moxley goes to the outside and climbs up. He drags Sammy up from this end, and then underhooks! Sammy fights free and scrambles away, but comes back to LEAP for a SPANISH FLY!

Sammy slashes the throat to torture rack but Moxley fights out. Moxley kicks, Sammy breaks free, KNEE! Torture rack and flip, for another KNEE! Cover, TWO!! Sammy does not feast his eyes on a victory! Sammy heads up top and leaps, but Moxley catches the flip into a COQUINA CLUTCH! Sammy TAPS, Moxley wins!!

Winner: Jon Moxley, by submission; advances to the #1 Contender’s match

The Maniac isn’t just all barbed wire and brawling! He has a technical side, and he made Sammy submit! Moxley heads for the Bahamas, but will he be facing the daredevil of the Bastard?

But wait! Here comes Chris Jericho! At least, we think. The lights go down, and when they come back… The Inner Circle has surrounded Moxley! Moxley doesn’t care, and he fights them all! But that’s 4v1 and it doesn’t go his way. Jericho rains down fists then Santana chokes Moxley. Fans boo as Ortiz keeps the ref away and Hager drags Moxley up for a standing sleeper! Jericho uses the title belt to LASH Moxley over and over! The golden plate is a brutal weapon across the back of Moxley! PNP drag Moxley back up for Hager to KNEE Moxley in the balls! The Big Hurt leaves Moxley hurting but Miami call him something else.

But this still isn’t enough, Sammy SLAPS away on Moxley’s face! PNP keep Moxley from fighting back and Jericho takes a spike from his jacket! Fans are freaking out as Jericho aims at Moxley! Jericho JABS Moxley with the spike to his eye!! Fans continue to cuss out Jericho and referees flood the ring. The refs tell the Inner Circle to stop, so the Inner Circle slowly takes their leave. Medics check on Moxley’s eye while Jericho soaks up the heat. Will Moxley be in any shape to fight on the Cruise of Jericho?

 

Backstage interview with The Inner Circle.

Jenn Decker asks why Jericho went that far. That jab to the eye could’ve ended Moxley’s career! Jenn wants to talk to Jericho. Oh does she? Well Jericho wants to talk to the whole world! What happened was not the Inner Circle’s fault or Jericho’s fault. This is all Moxley’s fault. They offered him the keys to the kingdom, and he smashed a bottle of the Bubbly on Jericho’s head! Moxley is a wild man, but that is why Jericho went “eye for an eye.” This reckless abandon did this to Moxley. PAC and Darby can thank Jericho for this, because at this point, they’re probably going to advance straight to a match with Jericho! Jericho will kick the crap- No, the SH*T out of Moxley! And the Inner Circle will beat down and embarrass the Jurassic Express! Jericho will pick scrawny Jungle Boy up by his ankles and use that “rat’s nest” hair to swab the poop deck! See you next week, Moxley, though you can’t see them. Also, hit Sammy up on his social media.

 

Six Man Tag: MJF, The Butcher & The Blade w/ The Bunny VS Dustin Rhodes, QT Marshall & Diamond Dallas Page!

Maxwell Jacob Friedman joins his mercenaries, Braxton Sutter and Andy Williams, in a match to settle scores. MJF pushed DDP too far, and DDP fought back! The Natural and Mr. Big Apple back DDP up, will they finally shut MJF’s big mouth?

The teams sort out and MJF starts with DDP to make him look at the “I Banged Diamond’s Daughter” shirt. But fans are strongly on DDP’s side as he makes both an AEW in-ring debut and in-ring return. MJF tags out to the Butcher so that he can get in the faces of the fans. DDP tags QT in so MJF tags back in. MJF doesn’t take QT seriously, obviously, but fans rally with QT. QT ties up with MJF but MJF kicks low. MJF headlocks but QT powers out, only for MJF to run him over. MJF flexes, speeds things up and shows off his agility. But QT runs in, things speed up again, MJF hurdles but QT handsprings! MJF was surprised by that one, but then he sarcastically applauds. MJF wants to shake hands, QT flips him off! QT blocks MJF’s kick and then flips him around, but MJF pokes QT in the eyes.

Fans boo as MJF drags QT over and tags in the Blade. Blade stomps away as Bunny Allie talks trash. Blade CHOPS QT then CHOPS again! Blade whips, QT dodges and then springboard crossbodies! Tag to Dustin and fans rally! Dustin rallies with lariats but Blade whips. Dustin says “Not today!” and drops down to uppercut! Atomic drop and boot, but Blade gets clear to tackle Dustin to the corner. Dustin boots back, rocks Butcher then uppercuts Blade! And again! MJF sucker punches Dustin, and he had the Dynamite Diamond Ring on! Wardlow hides the evidence and MJF plays dumb. Blade rains down rights on Dustin then drags him up to throw out. Blade distracts the ref and Allie mocks the deep breath to then SLAP Dustin! Wardlow BOOTS Dustin for good measure!

DDP comes over, Wardlow puts Dustin in and Blade goes after him. MJF climbs up to taunt the fans as AEW goes picture in picture.

MJF stomps Dustin’s hands then puts him back in the corner. Dustin fights back with hammering hands but MJF throat chops! MJF tags Blade and Blade stomps a mudhole into Dustin. Blade throws forearms then rakes Dustin’s face before he tags MJF back in.

MJF grins again then kisses his biceps. MJF digs his knee back into Dustin, fans call MJF names, but Dustin powers back up. Dustin sees the knock down coming and flips over to put a knee up! MJF atomic drops himself and falls over! Dustin gets up but MJF grabs an arm to redirect him. Dustin takes out the mercenaries! Then boots MJF! Dustin sends MJF out hard! But Dustin falls over! Fans rally up and Dustin hurries to his corner, Blade puts MJF in to tag, and Butcher goes after QT! Bakcbreaker and steel steps! But Dustin gets Blade with the spinning powerslam!

Fans rally up as Dustin rises! Hot tags to MJF and DDP!! MJF runs and dodges but not the lariat! DDP bumps MJF off buckles all the way to 9, but Butcher runs in. Butcher blocks a kick but not the lariat! DDP bumps MJF off for the tenth! Blade runs in, blocks a boot and ducks the lariat, but not the second lariat! Fans fire up, and everyone puts their hands up. CUTTER for Butcher! MJF slowly rises and this is the one DDP wants. “BANG!” But MJF counters to chicken wing, but instead of a back slide, he sneaks in a mule kick LOW BLOW! Dustin tags in and BOOTS MJF! Dustin hops up, to give MJF a DESTROYER! MJF flounders and swings wild, but flops into a DIAMOND CUTTER! Cover, but Blade breaks it up!

QT dumps Blade out and tags in! Dustin aims at the mercenaries with a CANNONBALL! Fans rally for QT as he builds speed to FOSBURY FLOP! QT fires up and Allie climbs up, but DDP says no no no. DDP pushes her aside and HE climbs up!? DDP FLIES!! Fans are thunderous for the living legend, but then MJF rolls up QT! Team MJF wins!!

Winners: Team MJF, MJF pinning

As always, MJF ruins the fun. He used his mercenaries to do all the work, and gets the win for himself. But with Cody accepting his challenge, will MJF face all the karma that has built up against him?

 

Backstage interview with SoCal Uncensored.

Frankie Kazarian and Scorpio Sky now know who their Cruise of Jericho opponents will be. Any thoughts? The world tag team champions are interrupted by a buzzed Hangman. They get upset with him barging in and spilling beer on them, but he gets upset with them getting upset. Hangman says he’ll take on all three at once but Omega hurries over to diffuse the situation. Omega apologizes, Hangman’s a bit frisky. With all due respect, they’re going to have a gentleman’s content on the cruise. Omega pulls Hangman away, can he also keep Hangman away from the bar?

 

Darby Allin VS PAC!

After what Jericho did to Moxley, this could end up just being the contender’s match. But assuming the Maniac is still willing to fight with one good eye, who wins this match to set sail?

The bell rings and fans are dueling as Pac and Darby circle. They tie up, Pac headlocks but Darby powers out. Pac runs Darby over and glares at him. Things speed up, Darby jumps but Pac slides. Darby slides and gets around to handspring and whip. Pac reverses but Darby springboards to arm-drag! Pac handsprings through but Darby shotgun dropkicks him down! Fans fire up for Darby as he headlocks. Pac powers out and tilt-o-whirl backbreakers! Darby writhes but Pac takes his time stalking over. Pac TOSSES Darby across the ring! And then stands on Darby’s head! Pac lets up and drags Darby to his feet, to whip hard into a corner. Pac runs in but Darby boots back! Darby leaps over Pac to shotgun dropkick him into buckles!

Pac gets out but Darby slingshots. Pac evades so Darby slingshots back in to DIVE! Tope suicida hits and rams them both into the railing! Darby puts Pac in fast but Pac bails out fast, so Darby DIVES again! That was an even harder tope! Fans cheer for “A E DUB! A E DUB!” as Pac hobbles away. Darby gives chase, and is on the apron to leap! But Pac blocks to swing Darby into steel steps! Darby writhes and Pac leaves him for dead as AEW goes picture in picture.

Pac watches Darby writhe but goes out to fetch him. Pac brings Darby up but drops him as he considers his options. Pac brings steel steps around and the ref warns Pac. Pac brings Darby up the steps and lifts, to POWERBOMB him on the steps! Darby writhes as he flops off the steel and Pac leaves him behind again. Pac patiently waits for Darby as Darby crawls. The ref starts the count as Darby claws his way over. Pac waits, Darby is in at 9! Pac is annoyed, and he drags Darby into place. Pac looks to do a standing flip, but instead drops down to put on a crossface. Darby endures, claws and reaches, and manages to get the ropebreak! Pac lets go as AEW returns to single picture.

Pac stomps Darby to a corner then mocks the booing fans. Pac throws Darby out hard, then quickly goes out to throw him into railing! Darby flounders around but Pac drags him into the ring. Pac aims at Darby as he climbs up top. Darby stands, Pac missile dropkicks him down! Pac drags Darby to a cover, TWO!! Darby still lives and now Pac is growing frustrated. Pac argues with the ref but Darby claws his way up. Pac drags Darby to a corner and stands him up. Pac fireman’s carries Darby as he climbs up top! Fans anticipate something bad but Darby fights free! To SUPER CRUCIFIX DRIVER!! And Darby comes to life! Darby heads up top as Pac flounders to the apron. But that doesn’t change anything, Darby SUPER COFFIN DROPS! Direct hit wrecks Pac and now Darby gets into the ring!

A ring count begins while fans are losing their minds. Pac stirs as the count reaches 5, and he flounders to the ring at 7. Pac is in, Darby runs and flips over, throwback STUNNER! Then a DESTROYER! Cover, TWO!! Pac survives and Darby knows he’s close! Fans rally up as Darby gets up while Pac stirs again. Pac bails out again so Darby slides. Pac catches Darby in the apron skirt and enziguris him down! Pac drags Darby into the ring and runs, to LARIAT Darby inside-out! Cover, TWO!! Darby still lives and now Pac is frustrated. Pac looms over Darby and fans rally up. Darby slowly rises, but Pac gets forehead to forehead with him. Darby ROCKS Pac with a right! Then wrings Pac out, rolls and La Magistrol! TOW and jackknife, TWO! Sunset, TWO! Figure four and a cover, TWO!! Darby was really creative but not enough yet. Darby springboards, Coffin into GERMAN SUPLEX! Pac hits a BASTARD BOMB! Cover, TWO!?!

Fans are fired up and Pac heads to a corner. Darby hurries and anchors Pac’s feet. Pac kicks him away but Darby comes back. Darby climbs, Pac clubs away, but Darby just rises up. Pac headbutts Darby down, then adjusts, BLACK ARROW! Cover, Pac wins!

Winner: PAC, by pinfall; advances to the #1 Contender’s match

The Bastard crushes the dreams of the Undead Underdog, and Tony Schiavone is in the ring to interview him. The Second Wave is coming, but Moxley might still be in shape to compete. No no no. Pac tells him to congratulate the NEW #1 contender! But Moxley needs to be medically checked. Well we all saw what happened to Moxley! He is clearly incapacitated, which amounts to a forfeit. So again, you are looking at the NEW #1 contender! As for Jericho, Pac wants him to know that he’s coming. And when Pac wins the title- Sorry, news is coming in. Moxley is being loaded into the ambulance to go to a hospital, but Moxey refuses to go! Moxley barges out, big patch over his bleeding eye, and he storms his way to the ringside area!

Moxley snatches a mic on his way out and Pac is furious! Moxley is on stage as he says, “It ain’t going down like that, brother.” Moxley doesn’t care if he’s blind, half-dead or what, he will be on the cruise to kick Pac’s ass! “Because that title shot belongs to me!” Security, referees and medics do their best to keep Moxley back, but it is clear that come hell or high water, the Maniac and the Bastard are going to fight for the right to face Le Champion!

 


 

My Thoughts:

What a great episode for this special themed episode. I really hope Bash at the Beach becomes a tradition for AEW, though maybe during the summer next time. While the Cruise of Jericho will sail away to the Bahamas next week, just seems a shame to go with a summer theme episode during winter. But the episode itself was red hot with that opening Fatal 4 Way tag. That was borderline PPV level material right there, and it was quite the twist that it was Omega and Page getting the win. The interview interruption promo was pretty well done, playing up Hangman having a little too much but in a way that’s humorous, not dramatic. I don’t think Omega and Page win the tag titles, though, unless it is to feed into how The Dark Order is targeting them now. That would be quite the twist going towards Revolution, where the Dark Order won’t even need to win the titles, they’ll just brainwash the guys who have them.

Cody of course accepts MJF’s challenge, but his promo in doing so was pretty good. The cage match with Wardlow is set for AEW Dynamite in Atlanta, so there won’t be a lot of time until Revolution. MJF and his team get a win in a really great Six Man. I know DDP is a legend and a fan favorite, but I feel he was booked just a little too strong against the young stars here. But of course, that’s why MJF sneaks in a win rather than a decisive victory. I could’ve sworn it was going to be Awesome Kong in tonight’s Women’s Tag but guess not. And even without Kong, Brandi and Melanie Cruise make a decent duo but it was good to see the Faces win. This will extend things, I’m sure, but I’m still sensing we get Riho and Britt Baker in on this to lead to something big at Revolution.

I don’t recall them saying there was a mini-tournament to determine Jericho’s challenger at Revolution, but it really helped tie the episode together that they made the move. Moxley VS Sammy was a pretty good match, but it seems TNT is still learning (and failing) to give Sammy time for his cue card promos. The Inner Circle’s attack on Moxley was logical and the kayfabe jab of metal spike to the eye was a nice touch. Darby VS PAC was a really good match, but naturally we set up Face VS Heel with Pac winning. Moxley of course refusing to let the bad eye stop him is definitely in character, and Moxley VS Pac will be a great match. But in the end, I’m pretty sure Moxley wins to go to Revolution.

My Score: 9.2/10

The Inner Circle rolls into Daily’s Place!

Chris Jericho in a black Lamborghini, Jake Hager in a Chevy Silverado, Sammy Guevara in a Range Rover, Santana in a Dodge Ram, Ortiz in a Porsche, and motorcycle entourage escorting them in! 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 dodges and gets to the apron! Caster staggers up, Hangman slingshots to- No, Bowens anchors him! Hangman mule kicks Bowens, BOOTS Caster, and then ASAI MOONSAULTS Bowens down! 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.

AEW returns with a backstage interview with Chris Jericho.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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

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. Cage drags Backlund back up, and gets him up for the DRILL CLAW! Cover, Team Taz wins!

Winners: Team Taz, by pinfall

Well that seemed rather magnanimous of Starks. Though, he sure is leaning into cheering Cage on… But either way, the team won because they’re #AbsoluteMachines! Who can stop the path of rage?

 

Jurassic Express VS Rex Lawless & Dean Alexander!

Jungle Boy & Luchasaurus are preparing for a kaiju class collision on Dynamite with Bear Country, so they’re gonna represent for Team Godzilla! Will The Pectoral Poseidon and The Sensation make for a good warm-up before the war of the monsters on Wednesday?

The teams sort out and Alexander starts with JB. JB and Alexander circle, tie up, and JB hammerlocks to a headlock. Alexander powers out, comes back but JB headlocks to takeover. Alexander headscissors, JB moves around to pop free and then rolls Alexander back to whip. Alexander reverses, JB dodges and waistlocks, Luchasaurus tags in before the O’Conner Roll. JB gets Alexander up and Luchasaurus BOOTS him into the GERMAN SUPLEX! Lawless tags in and he rams Luchasaurus! Luchasaurus doesn’t budge and he CHOPS back! Lawless brings down the straps and eggs Luchasaurus on. Luchasaurus CHOPS, Lawless BOOTS! Lawless fires up but gets caught for a KNEE!

Luchasaurus whips Lawless to the corner, fires off, and tags in JB. Lawless staggers into the choke grip, and the CHOKE SLAM! Luchasaurus TAIL WHIPS Alexander, BUZZSAWS Lawless, JB BLINDSIDE ELBOWS! Cover, Jurassic Express wins!

Winners: Jurassic Express, by pinfall

The King of the Monsters would be proud! Will the boy and his dinosaur win one for Godzilla on Dynamite?

 

Ryan Nemeth w/ JD Drake VS Fuego Del Sol!

The Hollywood Hunk rolls with one of his wingmen and looks to be hotter than even the Fire of the Sun. Will the Blue Collar Badass be there for him, no matter what?

The bell rings and Nemeth and Fuego circle. Fans rally for Fuego as he and Nemeth tie up. Nemeth drops to fireman’s carry takeover, and JD says that’s two points! Nemeth and Fuego reset, Nemeth gets around to waistlock, then throws Fuego down! Another two points! Nemeth taunts Fuego and rubs in the fact he has a 4-0 lead that doesn’t even matter here. Fuego gets him back with arm-drag after arm-drag! Fuego then dodges, tilt-o-whirls and arm-drags again! Fuego grinds Nemeth, twists the wrist, and then kicks the arm! And again! And again and again and again! Fuego gives one last KICK, then wrenches through to a wristlock.

Always up in your feelins. Cuz nobody loves you, everybody told me, call the Acclaimed if you’re feelin’ lonely. The Elite didn’t want you, that’s gotta suck. Pour a drink when you wanna keep it bottled up. Ask Kenny, Matt ‘n’ Nick, even Papa Buck. They said, ‘Hangman? No, you can’t hang with us.’ Then you found the Dark Order.

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?

The Hybrid2 VS Bear Country!

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
