AEW returns as MJF heads to the ring!
Maxwell Jacob Friedman promised us last week that he has BIG news to share. Fans boo because they don’t care. “Makes sense. It’s probably because you’re all envious of me. I’ve accomplished more in one year on national television than any of you meaningless shmucks will accomplish in your entire lives.” If he were us, take that hatred and strap in. MJF isn’t here to get on top, he’s here to stay on top. Much like the man he’ll call out in a moment. A man he looks up to, a man who has stayed on top of the industry for 30 YEARS. This man will hear MJF’s groundbreaking announcement in person. It’s Le Champion, Chris Jericho!
Jericho does head out, with the Inner Circle behind him. Sammy Guevara still doesn’t have the jacket MJF promised was coming. Jericho enjoys the fans singing along with Judas. MJF likes that, too. But for future reference, everyone was off key. Chris, before MJF says the announcement, oh look! Sammy DOES have the jacket, but he just doesn’t want to ear it. Why not? Jericho tells Sammy to put it on. It’s a gift! That’s rude not to wear it. But it’s too big! He got the size wrong! MJF still thinks it looks great. MJF apologizes, but speaking of fit, just look at Jericho’s body! Look at the arms, he’s like Popeye if he injected spinach! But not to get weird, can we talk about the hair? Bodacious mane! Not that most of these prematurely balding fans can appreciate it. Can MJF touch the hair?
MJF wants to touch Jericho’s hair? Yes, please, let him touch the hair. MJF is asking to touch Jericho’s hair? Yes, please, he wants to touch the hair. So his hair? Yeah? Yeah. Go ahead then. Sweet! Boop. Smooth as a baby’s bottom! Alright, Max, cut the crap. What crap? MJF promised this groundbreaking announcement, dragged Inner Circle out here, so what is the proclamation? MJF is sensing some hostility, that’s not what he wants. No one wants hostility. If Jericho wants him to “keep it real,” MJF says that the two biggest draws in AEW are looking at each other eye to eye, nose to nose, and toes to MF’ing toes. That is why Jericho is the DEMO GOD! And if Jericho is the Demo God, then MJF is a RATINGS RULER! Fans boo, that isn’t true at all. MJF says the nickname just went over their heads.
But MJF says they’ve both been on top since AEW started. They’ve both tried to make their ways to the top, yet these two haven’t met in a match. MJF shudders to think why, and there’s a reason why. When you turn on the TV at Casa del Le Champion to watch Animal Planet- Whoa, whoa. Jericho hates Animal Planet. Oh, okay, sorry, though that is random. It is not part of the Turner family of networks, that makes sense. Let’s just relax! Let’s say Jericho is watching animals. And when he watches those, you never see two piranhas eating each other. And why? Mutual respect. MJF and Jericho have that. We all know they’re both predators swimming in a deep blue sea, hunting prey. But the prey is adapting, so they need to adapt, too.
MJF says he and Jericho are great apart, but what if they worked together? What does he mean? MJF wants to j-jo-jo… jog! “You’re blowing it, Max, pull it together.” MJF wants to JOIN the IIIIINNER spiritual child to get his smile back. No, don’t go HBK. Just say it! MJF tells “Christopher” that he would sorta kinda hypothetically theoretically possibly plausibly might want to join the Inner Circle. There it is! Oh. So he wants to kinda sorta wanna possibly perhaps join? Well let’s not start rumors, guys. He didn’t say that. But Ortiz snatches the mic from MJF! “We get it, Max. You’re living out one of your childhood fantasies, getting to jerk Jericho’s chain.” But there is no maybe, possibly ANYTHING. The Inner Circle doesn’t want MJF in Inner Circle. End of story! Let’s go.
Jericho wants his guys to hold on. They’re a family and a team, they make decisions together. But they do need time to figure it out. But next week, Jericho and MJF, 1v1… for a steak dinner. Sammy is shocked! MJF wants to get this straight. Jericho wants to eat steak with him? Jericho’s never wanted anything more in his entire life. A steak dinner huh!? You’re on!! See you next Wednesday, at the restaurant! What just happened? Will the steak dinner go well? Or will MJF’s chances of joining be… well done?
Tony Schiavone interviews Britt Baker… during a spa session?
Britt insists he call her “Doctor.” Adversity causes some to break, and others to break records. Britt’s comeback match is literally being written into the record books as we speak. REBA! Rebel hurries in with the giant notepad. Britt’s Role Model Rule #5: Be the BADDEST B*TCH on the BLOCK! Britt sits up and quotes the legendary Jim Ross. Wait, is Tony naked!? It’s a spa… EWWWW~!
Cut to later, when Britt convinces Tony to do a chest waxing. It’s so gross, he has to. No, please no! OW! OOOH KELLY CLARKSON! And then they do leg massages. Britt says AEW featured Britt surmounting adversity. Broken leg, broken nose, conspiracy, concussions. NOTHING slows the Role Model’s roll. Tony, cover up! “But when you are a bad b*tch, you make sure you have the biggest comeback in sports history.” And now that Britt is back, not that she was ever really gone, the entire Women’s Division is on notice. This is Britt congratulating herself for the victory she had while Tony was gone! He got Superkick’d in the face! So did she! She still showed up! Taz would show up! Britt is being professional and fixed his teeth. Anyway, her comeback is next week, but against who?

Nyla Rose is watching, and she is scowling! The Samurai of Stardom is still on the throne, but Nyla’s Dark ultimatum goes unanswered. Will the former champion be given her rematch at Full Gear?
BREAKING NEWS for tonight’s main event!
Given Lance Archer attacked Jon Moxley and Jon Moxley attacked Archer back, the AEW World Championship match will now be NO DISQUALIFICATIONS! #EverybodyDies, but who will even survive when these two get to fight with nothing holding them back?
And BREAKING NEWS for the TNT Championship!
Because the match ended in a time limit draw, Cody is giving Orange Cassidy ANOTHER chance! In two weeks, the American Nightmare and Freshly Squeezed start from scratch! Will there be a true winner this time? Who heads for Darby at Full Gear?
Eddie Kingston and the Lucha Brothers head to commentary!
The Mad King pulls up a seat while we watch a video package.
AEW looks at the growing grudge between Scorpio Sky and Shawn Spears.
The Chair Man insists he is not “stalking” Scorpio. But he can see why we think that. AEW likes Scorpio both in the ring and out of the ring. He’s a nice guy. That was made evident when Scorpio came out to save Matt Sydal. “The Hero” has been a role since the beginning of this industry. Is Spears upset being interrupted? No. But Spears does not tolerate thieves. One moment lasts a lifetime, such as Spears giving Cody that blindside chair shot. But Scorpio has stolen Spears’ moments. Spears says Scorpio owes him. He and Tully will collect. But when and where?
Back to commentary with Kingston!
The Mad King still wants after Jon Moxley, a man he knows better than anyone. The NO DISQUALIFICATIONS main event is happening, after the break!
AEW World Championship: Jon Moxley VS Lance Archer w/ Jake the Snake!
It was in NJPW that these two battled over the IWGP United States Championship in a Texas Death Match, and saw The Death Rider take that belt off the Murderhawk Monster. But now, Archer has come for revenge and wants to take #BigPlatinum from him in return! Will Moxley’s reign atop AEW “die” on the Dynamite Anniversary? Or can Moxley survive Archer’s bloodthirsty brutality again?
As Archer makes his entrance, he uses some random member of the crew to SHATTER the glass! Moxley makes his entrance from the same hall and door by the bleachers as before, and there’s not even time for Justin Roberts to give an introduction or for the belt to be raised! Moxley gets in, dodges Archer, and as the bell rings, PARADIGM SHIFT! Cover, TWO!?! Archer survives and Kingston laughs. Moxley throws his shirt off, takes aim but Archer choke grips first! Moxley breaks free, kicks low but Archer powers him out of the ring! They both tumble out, Archer gets up to CLUB Moxley into railing! Archer stomps Moxley, drags him up to CLUB him more, then whips Moxley into railing!
Archer talks smack and slaps him around before putting him back in the ring. Archer gets on the apron but Moxley dropkicks the legs out! Moxley builds speed to DIVE! Direct hit and the tope sends Archer into railing! Moxley brings Archer up to bump him off the railings, then throw him into more railing! Archer CLUBS back and throws Moxley into more railing! Archer drags Moxley out, bumps him off the apron and then ROCKS him with a right hand! Moxley flounders, Archer hooks his nose! The ref tells them to get this in the ring so Archer lets off to put Moxley in. Moxley flounders to a corner, Archer hears the fans rallying as he runs corner to corner, but Moxley LARIATS first! But Archer stays up!?
Moxley throws forearms but Archer eggs him on! Moxley runs, Archer goes the other way and DERAILS Moxley! Moxley bails out, Kingston says that’s smart. But Archer CANNONBALLS! Archer soaks up the heat as AEW goes picture in picture.
Archer goes back to Moxley, drags him up and clubs him back down! Time to really get No DQ as Archer brings out a TABLE! Archer sets the table up but then brings out another table! Archer sets the new table up beside the first, Moxley is in the ring and flips him off, so Archer gets in to BOOT Moxley down! Archer mock Mox as he puts him in a corner and DOUBLE CHOPS! Moxley stays up so Archer smears his face and hooks his nose, before a DOUBLE AX HANDLE! Archer puts Moxley up top, inverted crucifix, but Moxley slips out and runs, into another BOOT! Archer digs a knee into Moxley’s head, but lets up to soak up the heat. Archer drags Moxley up to reel him in and CLOBBER him!
Archer sits Moxley up to CLUB him in the chest, and bring him to the apron. Archer choke grips as AEW returns to single picture, but Moxley fights with elbows! Moxley clotheslines Archer back into the ring then climbs up the corner. Moxley watches Archer rise, and then leaps, into the choke grip! Moxley pries free and waistlocks, but Archer elbows out hard! Moxley throws a forearm but Archer DECKS him! Archer taunts Moxley, Moxley gets up to throw forearms, but Archer DECKS him again! Archer again talks trash but fans rally up.

The tables are waiting as Archer brings Moxley up. Archer underhooks to steal Moxley’s move but Moxley blocks! LOW BLOW! No disqualifications, remember?! Moxley gets Archer for a PARADIGM SHIFT through the tables!! Kingston is loving this! Whoever is the champion, they’ll be softened up for him and “the family.” Fans are loving “A E DUB!” for this extreme main event, “This is Awesome!”
Moxley gets up and into the ring but Archer manages to rise from the wreckage! Both men are bleeding from some cuts here and there. Moxley fires up, kicks, DEATH RIDER!! Cover, TWO!?!? But into the BULLY CHOKE!! Archer powers up, shoves Moxley away, but Moxley dodges to roll him up! TWO, Archer kicks and DDT’s back! Archer drags Moxley up, and choke slams him into a corner! Then he inverted crucifix lifts, for the BLOCKOUT BOMB! Cover, TWO!?! Into a ghost pin! MOXLEY WINS!!
Winner: Jon Moxley, by pinfall (still AEW World Champion)
Kingston can’t help but laugh at that. Archer is furious and he BOOTS! Kingston sends Fenix and Pentagon to the ring, to help someone, but who? They SMACK Archer?! And Archer didn’t even flinch?! Snake says Archer needs to stand down, this is still a number’s game! Kingston tells his boys to let off Moxley, he had a great match. “Ladies and gentlemen, give it up for your world champion, Jon Moxley.” They help Moxley up, and Kingston says they’ve been friends since 2009. Does Moxley remember Philly, having drinks and kicking back? Kingston loves Moxley to death. They had a great match together last week, even though Kingston never tapped out. Kingston raises Moxley’s hand while Fenix fetches the belt.
The fans cheer as Kingston says he is proud! Is Moxley proud? Kingston always knew Moxley was this good! No one else is better! What is Kingston doing with this praise? Do it for Jonny! Then URAKEN!! Yep, there it is! And then a REAR NAKED CHOKE!! Fans boo but Fenix and Penta play defense to keep refs away! Kingston has Moxley all purple and then lets him go! “C’mon, what?!” Kingston grabs the belt for his own and says, “Look how beautiful this is! This is everything we fight for!” But Moxley took it from Kingston! Kingston never tapped or quit! He vows to get Moxley! Is the Mad King going to dethrone the Maniac by any means necessary?
What a great episode for the anniversary! Granted, all the title matches kept the status quo, but that’s not really a reason to be upset. The opening tag title match was great stuff, but the way the ref was kept from seeing the cheating was so lame. The ref ducked and turned away from just trying to avoid the roll-up. NJPW is much better at this, where a Heel often just straight up pushes the ref! Yes, the ref will be upset but at least it’s a better way of covering things up! The tag team Fatal 4 will be great, and one way or another, the Bucks will win. FTR VS Bucks will finally happen, and it doesn’t really matter who wins, it’ll be amazing. Though I kinda hope Bucks win so that year two is all about vindication for them.
I will say, “You broke our arcade cabinet!” is definitely a first for why teams are going to feud. Miro decimating the Best Friends, than doing 90% of the work against Johnson and Maluta sure helps him look strong. Miro & Kip VS Best Friends is going to be a fun feud, and I have a feeling both the Best Bachelor Party Ever and the Superbad Wedding will be dragged into this. That prospect actually makes this a lot more fun than in the moment. The last two names in the “contender eliminator” tournament were given to us with no real fanfare, but Janela and Pentagon make great choices. I’m very surprised Pentagon VS Fenix is happening, but I suppose if it isn’t in the first round, it’s never happening given the story is and must be Omega VS Page in the finals. Fenix VS Penta is epic, whoever faces Omega will make it an incredible match, but then the Lucha Brothers can just go back to the tag division.
The TNT Championship match was great stuff. And with Cassidy still using his usual antics on and off, Cody’s frustration almost gave us the Heel Cody we thought we were getting. The Dark Order getting involved was good, too, just to keep the story of Dark Order VS Nightmare Family alive. Using the time limit draw was actually brilliant. Not even the FTR #BrushwithGreatness matches used it, and it actually comes up very rarely, so it took me by surprise to hear the time announcements. Darby is waiting at Full Gear either way, so while it’d be great to give us a rematch of Darby VS Cody from episode one of Dynamite for things to be full circle, I feel it’d do a lot more for AEW if it was Cassidy VS Darby, two young gun fan favorites battling it out.
MJF’s segment with the Inner Circle was great, from Sammy having flappy sleeves on the jacket to MJF talking to himself. The steak dinner segment next week sounds like it’ll be hilarious, too. It’s still anyone’s guess if MJF is being genuine about wanting to join, or if he’s going to swerve Jericho at the last second. Sammy being Matt Hardy’s attacker seems a little too easy, but I suppose it’s fine. All Out’s Broken Rules/Last Man Standing went rather sideways, so maybe this will make up for that. Shida VS Swole was a great match that I honestly don’t recall being announced. It would’ve been wild if Swole won, but it seems clear Shida VS Nyla rematch is happening at Full Gear. Moxley VS Archer being made No DQ was also great, but this is of course leading to Moxley VS Kingston at Full Gear. I would love if my idea of I Quit match was the stipulation. It has to be something that Kingston can’t make up an excuse for. Him saying I Quit can’t be denied, so it makes sense.
My Score: 9.3/10

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.

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!

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!

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 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!

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!

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?

Darby survives and JD is shocked! Fans fire up, JD drags Darby back to the drop zone and goes back up top. MOONSAULT FLOPS!
Darby is in the corner, he climbs back up but JD ROCKS him first! JD climbs up now, but Darby SLAPS him! JD SLAPS, it’s a SLAP fight up top! But then Darby grabs a hand to BITE it, and hits a SUPER CODE RED!! JD is in a drop zone, Darby goes up top, COFFIN DROP!! Cover, Darby wins!
Winner: Darby Allin, by pinfall (still AEW TNT Champion)
The Relentless is still champion, still Face of the Network, and still on a hot win streak! But then THE BUTCHER clobbers Darby! The Hardy Family Office is here and they mug Darby on behalf of Hardy himself! Bunny Allie says commentary needs to get their stuff off the table because they’re going to use it!

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

Spears brings the table to the apron, Wardlow reels Jericho in, but here comes IRON MIKE TYSON!! Tyson and Jericho may not be friends, but Tyson isn’t going to let a group of thugs brutalize Jericho! Thyson fires off on Spears! He rains down fury like in his prime! FTR saves Spears, the Inner Circle rushes to even things up!! The Pinnacle goes running now, and fans are fired up for Tyson standing with the Inner Circle! Is the Baddest Man on the Planet really on Jericho’s side? They shake hands! Jericho and Tyson let bygones be bygones, and Tyson says “up yours” to MJF! Will Iron Mike help the Inner Circle get ready for Blood & Guts?
Schiavone interviews Britt Baker (and Rebel) backstage.
The Doctor has a special announcement, and a small request for Tony Khan. “Tony, give the people what they want already!” A championship match for The Doctor! But she’s ranked fourth, there are others ahead of her. Yeah, let’s talk about those rankings. The win-loss system is UTTER CRAP! Championship opportunities should be based on star power, merchandise sales, and the demographic scores, which Britt is at the top of the food chain. It’s not her fault she had to waste a year putting respect on the women’s division and make history. But like a true Role Model, she will fix the broken system, climb up the rankings, and pretend like it actually matters.
So make sure to tune into Dynamite, Dark and Elevation where you will see The Doctor getting those wins up. Signed yours truly, Britt Baker DMD. Will Britt “expose” the AEW system for what it is?
The Bunny w/ The Hardy Family Office VS Tay Conti w/ The Dark Order!
Things may have calmed down from that brawl earlier, but there’s madness just below the surface when it comes to Allie the Bunny. But to counter the HFO being ringside, the Brazilian Blackbelt has not only the Dark Order’s Preston Vance, Evil Uno, Stu Grayson and Negative One, but she has Hikaru Shida with her! Will the Numbers game be in Tay’s favor?
The bell rings and these two fire off forearms! Tay gets the edge, Bunny kicks low and clubs away, then CLAWS Tay on the back! Bunny bumps Tay off buckles, Tay wobbles but Bunny bumps her off more buckles! Fans rally for Tay as Bunny digs her boots in! The ref counts, Bunny lets off and the HFO talk trash.

Bunny 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 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.

When will this emotional roller coaster with the Elite end?
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?

I’m a shooter, homie. I ain’t moving with the clock. I’ma take you out faster than you take a shot. Cosplay cowboy, probably ride sidesaddle. You probably on all fours, taking five paddles, from the Dark Order in the club house. You went soft but the Platinum is thugged out!
“I beat 10, beat Alex, and Colt, too. I’ll get Five, John Silver, Uno and Stu. And when your friends are all on the shelf, you’ll be back sitting at the bar by yourself. This goes out to Hangman. In the ring, you can’t hang, man. And when you’re on the show, you’re an eye sore! I’ma knock your ass of the high horse. You don’t have no real friends. Always up in your feelins. Cuz nobody loves you, everybody told me. Call the Acclaimed if you’re feelin’ lonely. Call us up! You feelin’ lonely, Hangman? I know you feelin’ lonely.” Platinum just dropped some heavy bars, but will be the one getting dropped on Dynamite?

Winners: Bear Country, by pinfall
Boulder & Bronson are rolling towards their showdown with Jurassic Express! But who will survive when these forces of nature collide on Dynamite?
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.
