Leva Bates is in the library.
She has pictures of when she and Peter Avalon were together. She literally dumps them and quotes “another famous librarian, ‘Testosterone is the great equalizer, and turns all men into morons.'” That theory is true looking over the last few months. “The One and Only Librarian” is something that scared Leva, but now it has liberated her. She can use all the time and energy wasted on Avalon and use it on herself. Now she’ll show the world what she can do, and that knowledge is power! Brainy can be badass, and Leva looks to write her own story in AEW!

Brandi Rhodes would’ve been out here with the young star if not for that attack by Jade Cargill on Dynamite. But will Velvet still be able to stir it up and make Tesha pay the price?
The bell rings and Price circles with Velvet. They tie up, go around, and then break. Velvet and Price tie up again, go around again, and break again. Fans cheer as the two are evenly matched.

Alex Marvez interviews Shawn Spears and Tully Blanchard.
He apologizes for interrupting their conversation, but he has been looking for them. He wants to ask about the controversial win over Scorpio Sky. Wow, really? How ballsy of him to open with that question. How about Spears be just as bold, and knock Marvez’s teeth out of his mouth? Tully calms Spears and Spears says there was no “instant replay,” no bullpen, no flags or timeouts. Do they know what it is these two do for a living? Find weaknesses and exploit them. That happens every day around the world but Spears is a monster for figuring it out? What is it that they really want to ask? “What is next for you and Scorpio Sky?”
Uh, nothing. Scorpio had his chance and did exactly what the world knew what he would: took the higher road. But where did that get him? Spears says this advice to Scorpio: “In this industry, nice guys finish last. DO you understand that?” It isn’t the violence but the distance you are willing to go. Spears has said this from the beginning, and that is why he is vindicated, victorious, and why Scorpio is completely lost. So what’s next for them? Nothing. Now take your ass home, Marvez. Tully and Spears cheers, but what is next for them?
Lance Archer and Jake the Snake are here!
But they aren’t alone as the Murderhawk Monster quite literally dumps an AEW prospect into the ring, then gives him a CHOKE SLAM! If that guy wasn’t a rag doll before, he is now. The Snake says the question they keep getting is, “Are you a good guy? Or a bad guy?” Never thought about it, but Snake always thought of himself as “just an honest prick.” But he asks Archer about the guy who invented the DDT. Duh, it’s Jake the Snake. But who stomped and romped all through Japan like Godzilla? Oh that’s Archer! Who’s the guy that carried a large python in a sack? Jake! But who’s the guy who showed up in AEW, took Mark Stunt and tossed him into the front row? Archer!
Jake says he has the topper. Who was the guy that tied the Macho Man in these ropes, and hooked him up with a 15 foot cobra, and left him? Jake the Snake. His favorite moment. Archer likes that, it’s that scary. But who is the guy that every single time that music hits, when that countdown starts, it makes everyone around the ring tear up and afraid, because they know #EverybodyDies? Archer. Then the real problem isn’t who Jake is, or who Archer is. The problem is, they dare anyone in AEW to get in Archer’s face and show us all who THEY are! An open challenge like never seen before has been issued! Who will be brave enough, or perhaps just insane enough, to accept it?
Private Party VS VSK & Baron Black!
Marq Quen and Isiah Kassidy had a great time helping Matt Hardy win the ELITE DELETION, but now they want to get back on track to those AEW World Tag Team Championships? Will they “invite” the Visionary and the EmpBRUH to this party in the ring?

Hell, 2020 has thrown everything at Sammy, golf carts included, and Sammy is still standing. There is nothing that can stop what Sammy is, because no one does it like him. Sammy doesn’t phone it in, he doesn’t take days off. Dark, Dynamite, PPV, it doesn’t matter because Sammy is the BEST EVER, every single night! Sooner or later, we will see what Sammy has been saying since day one in AEW. Sammy said that no matter who else says they’re the best, there’s no one bigger than Sammy! No one outshines Sammy!

AEW Dark presents a new episode of The Waiting Room!
Rebel/Reba welcomes us back, and introduces our host, “my dentist and yours,” Dr. Britt Baker! Britt walks in and is again so flattered by the standing ovation, that no one gave. The response to her talk show has been so overwhelming! The fans know that “The Baddest Bitch on the Block” isn’t just a dentist or just a wrestler, but that she is AEW’s franchise star and “quite the comedian.” Her office has been flooded with requests for her to appear! The Laff Factory, the Comedy Store, they all want Britt. Britt tries out some new material real quick: “What is a dentist’s favorite dinosaur? A Floss-araptor.” Rebel’s sidekick laugh is getting dorkier.
But let’s get to tonight. A big congratulations to Renee and Jon Moxley for their baby! Really, she means it. Renee, we can only hope Moxley doesn’t no show the delivery like he did last week’s contract signing. That’d suck…! Fans groan on that one. But Britt gives a big Waiting Room welcome to her guest, the blackbelt in judo and blue belt in Brazilian jiujitsu, the Brazilian Baddie, TAY CONTI! Conti makes her entrance, hugs Britt and takes a seat. Britt is so happy to have Conti tonight, and wants to sort something out. Is it said “Tay” like it’s spelled? Or more like “tie?” Britt would never want to insult her by saying it wrong. That’s just rude. Right, Reba?
Tay thanks Britt for asking, and it is “Tie.” Okay, then! “Tie” Conti, get it right, guys! Britt now joins Conti on the couch and wants to get to know her. This isn’t always about Britt. But who is Conti’s favorite competitor in the AEW Women’s Division? Other than herself and her friend, Anna Jay, Conti is a fan of Serena Deeb and Red Velvet. And…? Oh, duh! And Conti would love to have a match with the most important of the division: Hikaru Shida! Britt doesn’t like that answer but Rebel catches the show’s first “mail call.” And this is from “Tony S” in Atlanta. “What’s your relationship status?” Tony, that’s a bit weird to ask. Conti says no offense, but that is none of our business.
Well! This is Britt’s show, so answer the question. Conti will repeat herself. She knows she has an accent, so she’ll make it clear. “It’s none of your damn business!” Britt and Conti get in each other’s face and Rebel cools things off for their first ever musical guests! It’s The Acclaimed, Max Caster and Anthony Bowens! “AEW! The Acclaimed have arrived! Hit it, Max!” Yo yo! “You can try to be like us. You can try to be like us. You can try to be like us. I don’t really think you can ever do enough, though. You are not prepared to be acclaimed. You could never travel our terrain. And I think we ready for the Hall of Fame! Platinum Max isn’t just a name!
“You will never be cuter than I am. Bowens’ got more talent in his right hand, than anybody on the whole roster! And we got these tag teams lookin’ awkward. Wait, maybe you should be like Britt. Put the smile on that’s priceless. Yo! It’s priceless! And we about to leave y’all lifeless! ‘eeey! Be like us! You can try to be like us! You can try to be like us! I don’t think you could ever do enough, though.” Conti isn’t really feeling Caster’s flow, but Britt has the fans give it up for The Acclaimed! That’s all for tonight from the Waiting Room, and your favorite doctor, Britt Baker, DMD!

The Dark Order stands tall at the end of the night! Will it only be natural that the OG get to have another chance at those AEW World Tag Team Championships?
I feel like AEW Dark is becoming more about quantity and not quality. Everything was good tonight, but I feel like the main event could’ve been given more of the 165 minutes the night had. The Triple Threat tag was still fast and furious in a good way, but wouldn’t it have therefore been even better if it could’ve had some room to breathe? Maybe let it be a 15 minute match and not 10, then there wouldn’t be rushing through the spots. Pretty sure there was quite the collision during the double crossbodies to the outside that we weren’t supposed to have. But the Dark Order goes 2-1 on the night with Angels losing to Sydal 1v1. The Dark Order has two strong tag teams, but other than Brodie Lee, I don’t see much going for them in the men’s singles division. And even then, Brodie’s been off TV, I wonder what that’s about.
I will say, Sammy Guevara and Marko Stunt did have a great match, with a lot more out of Stunt than expected. Sammy of course wins to get back on track, and he had a really good promo after. I almost thought someone was going to confront him, but maybe that’ll be next time, since Sammy is deeply involved in the Inner Circle story that is MJF joining in. The Waiting Room was a bit more awkward this week, but clearly they were going for a “Jerry! Jerry!” moment as Britt got confrontational with Tay Conti. The Acclaimed are clearly gaining momentum and star power as they had their musical guest spot on the talk show, then had another good diss rap and win. I am already dying to see/hear Caster’s first diss rap on a big name team like SCU or Private Party.
I also thought it was interesting Avalon got his first win tonight. I really would’ve thought they’d have him wait until the last Dark of the year so that he could close out his 2020 record with that crucial first win and use it as a bigger reason to celebrate on New Year’s Eve. Plus, how hilarious would that be for him to get that first win, but then records are essentially reset for the 2021 “season?” He’d have to start from scratch basically, right as he finally got on the board!
My Score: 8/10

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!

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.

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?

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.

JD dares Darby to get back in and Darby is on the apron. Darby pie faces JD then dares him to bring it to the outside. JD takes the bait, Darby gets in then WRECKS JD with a dropkick! Darby runs to DIVE and ram JD into railing! Darby gets up top, Nemeth distracts everyone, and Darby leaps, but JD bounces him off his shoulder!
Nemeth laughs at Darby while JD drags him up, but Sting is there to scare Nemeth away! JD puts Darby in to drop a BIG back senton! Sting keeps backing Nemeth all they way to the timekeeper’s table and further away! JD ROCKS Darby, Nemeth keeps running, and JD CHOPS away on Darby! Bononi is still in JD’s corner as JD drops knees then covers, ONE!! Darby sputters but JD brings him up. Darby throws body shots but JD scoops and SLAMS to then drop a headbutt! Cover, TWO!, and AEW goes picture in picture.
JD stalks Darby, drags him up, chokes him on the ropes, but lets off as the ref counts. JD waits for Darby to get up, then brings him around to ROCK him with a right! Darby ends up in a corner, JD CHOPS him, then lets him feel it for a moment. Darby gets up, SLAPS JD, but JD SLAPS Darby back! JD whips Darby, LARIATS him inside out, then covers, TWO! Darby survives but JD wraps on a chinlock! JD grinds Darby down into the mat, but Darby fights his way up. Darby throws body shots, but JD back suplexes high and hard! JD drags Darby up the corner with him, but Darby SLAPS JD! And back hands and SLAPS and SLAPS and SLAPS!
Darby climbs up, fires off more SLAPS, then haymakers! JD shoves Darby away and hits a FLYING LEG LARIAT! Cover, TWO! Darby survives, JD grows frustrated, but JD steps on Darby as he goes to the corner. AEW returns to single picture as Darby bails out. JD pursues, stalks Darby, and he brings Darby around but Darby throws body shots! Darby throws a forearm but JD tosses him into ropes to CLOBBER him! JD shouts, “Tonight’s MY night!” Darby crawls, Bononi cheers JD on, and JD refreshes the ring count to then aim at Darby near the railings. JD runs in and CANNONBALLS but only into railing as Darby dodges!
Darby gets to the ring, gets up the corner, and he LEAPS onto both Bononi and JD! Darby gets back in the ring as fans are fired up for “A E DUB!” The ring count is 5 of 10 but JD gets in! Darby clubs away on JD with furious fists, then goes up the corner. JD trips Darby up! JD gets Darby in the Tree of Woe to KICK, CLUB and then sit him up by his chin. Darby SLAPS JD, but JD sits Darby up to CHOP him on the back! Darby is back in the Tree of Woe, JD runs and CANNONBALLS Darby down! JD goes up top fast, VADER BOMB! Cover, TWO!! Darby survives and JD is shocked! Fans fire up, JD drags Darby back to the drop zone and goes back up top. MOONSAULT FLOPS!
Darby is in the corner, he climbs back up but JD ROCKS him first! JD climbs up now, but Darby SLAPS him! JD SLAPS, it’s a SLAP fight up top! But then Darby grabs a hand to BITE it, and hits a SUPER CODE RED!! JD is in a drop zone, Darby goes up top, COFFIN DROP!! Cover, Darby wins!
Winner: Darby Allin, by pinfall (still AEW TNT Champion)
The Relentless is still champion, still Face of the Network, and still on a hot win streak! But then THE BUTCHER clobbers Darby! The Hardy Family Office is here and they mug Darby on behalf of Hardy himself! Bunny Allie says commentary needs to get their stuff off the table because they’re going to use it! But then Sting and the Dark Order are here to run HFO off! Bunny is furious, but she’s gotta face Tay Conti in the ring now! Is she reconsidering given the HFO ran off? Too late! Tay tackles her on the stage and rains down fury! The refs hurry to break this up because this needs to happen in the ring! Will Tay tear into Bunny on behalf of Darby and the Dark Order?
AEW returns with a backstage interview with Chris Jericho.
Marvez brings up the huge news that Blood & Guts is happening on May 5th! Jericho tells Alex Marvez he’s more handsome than usual. What’s he doing that’s new? But then MJF blindsides Jericho, and the Pinnacle join in! FTR, Shawn Spears, and Wardlow shove Jericho towards gorilla and then the stage! Where is the Inner Circle!? MJF chokes Jericho with his scarf! FTR gets Jericho up for the MIND BREAKER!! Marvez signals to cameras, and the Inner Circle door has been bolted shut! The Inner Circle literally bust through the door to get free! But the Pinnacle keeps mugging Jericho and they get a table!
Spears brings the table to the apron, Wardlow reels Jericho in, but here comes IRON MIKE TYSON!! Tyson and Jericho may not be friends, but Tyson isn’t going to let a group of thugs brutalize Jericho! Thyson fires off on Spears! He rains down fury like in his prime! FTR saves Spears, the Inner Circle rushes to even things up!! The Pinnacle goes running now, and fans are fired up for Tyson standing with the Inner Circle! Is the Baddest Man on the Planet really on Jericho’s side? They shake hands! Jericho and Tyson let bygones be bygones, and Tyson says “up yours” to MJF! Will Iron Mike help the Inner Circle get ready for Blood & Guts?
Schiavone interviews Britt Baker (and Rebel) backstage.
The Doctor has a special announcement, and a small request for Tony Khan. “Tony, give the people what they want already!” A championship match for The Doctor! But she’s ranked fourth, there are others ahead of her. Yeah, let’s talk about those rankings. The win-loss system is UTTER CRAP! Championship opportunities should be based on star power, merchandise sales, and the demographic scores, which Britt is at the top of the food chain. It’s not her fault she had to waste a year putting respect on the women’s division and make history. But like a true Role Model, she will fix the broken system, climb up the rankings, and pretend like it actually matters.
So make sure to tune into Dynamite, Dark and Elevation where you will see The Doctor getting those wins up. Signed yours truly, Britt Baker DMD. Will Britt “expose” the AEW system for what it is?
The Bunny w/ The Hardy Family Office VS Tay Conti w/ The Dark Order!
Things may have calmed down from that brawl earlier, but there’s madness just below the surface when it comes to Allie the Bunny. But to counter the HFO being ringside, the Brazilian Blackbelt has not only the Dark Order’s Preston Vance, Evil Uno, Stu Grayson and Negative One, but she has Hikaru Shida with her! Will the Numbers game be in Tay’s favor?

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?

Another great episode for Dynamite, and they’re clearly making a big deal out of no longer having a Wednesday Night War in their way. We’re getting a big episode next week with some good groundwork paved for it tonight, as well as for several more Wednesdays down the line. The first is that we are getting the tag title match now, but Best Friends are starting up their feud with Death Triangle again, with or without the titles. Given how tonight ended, I don’t know if PAC & Fenix win over these solidly Heel Bucks, but getting trios matches out of Death Triangle and Best Friends would still be awesome to see anyway.
We also got some great promos that put in some worked shoot material. Sting actually telling Archer he should be a top guy was great, because it is just as true as he and Archer said. This was also a good twist because where I thought we were getting Heel Archer going against Sting and/or Darby, this could flip Archer back towards a Face direction, and he’ll be taking on Ethan Page & Scorpio Sky, since they got cameos in the segment. QT’s promo with his unnamed faction was really good, and I am intrigued to see Ogogo finally get in the ring. Jericho’s promo tearing into MJF and The Pinnacle was an all time great, and is definitely going to be AEW’s best for this entire year. The brawl that followed and Tyson being with Inner Circle is great, as will Blood & Guts FINALLY happening!
Britt Baker’s promo was also good worked shoot adjacent, where she points out how AEW’s win loss record stuff doesn’t work. But instead of saying gimmick matches and tournaments and things are the problem, her character wants to make this into the (WWE) popularity system. This will make for a nice detail of her story as she racks up wins against lower level opponents, much like she’s already started with on Dark and Elevation, and then maybe she gets too cocky and lets one get a quick win off her, thereby ruining her run at the top spot. Plus, it feels like there’s a great story already in the works for Tay and Shida.
We got good intertwining of Darby’s story with Hardy and the Dark Order’s story with Hardy, and how Tay can fit into that against Bunny. Darby VS JD was great stuff, and then there was the great segue of the attack by the HFO, and how Tay and Bunny brawled then had their own solid match. Shida VS Tay is going to be big, and at this rate, could go either way because Tay is a hot hand right now. I’m surprised there wasn’t intertwining with Hangman, but given his great match with Caster to lock in as #1, maybe AEW is going to shift him towards the world title soon. I am also surprised Caster is getting the greenlight on his lyrics but I am not complaining, either.
We got an awesome main event with that 3v3, with great story of the Bucks unable to proverbially pull the trigger on Omega. The Bucks might be coming off a bit too wishy-washy, because they did the group Too Sweet but they then get up set at Callis but now they do this because they just can’t bring themselves to hate Omega. I guess the Biz Cliz can roll as a bigger group, with any number of possibilities given the growing partnerships with Impact and NJPW. But for just AEW, is there a chance Moxley and Kingston can get Death Triangle to side with them for just long enough to take on Omega’s group? Kingston may have been manipulating the Lucha Bros just months ago, but they all have common enemies in Omega and The Bucks. Plus, that’s a wild combination there that needs to be in a match together.
My Score: 9.5/10

And 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.

“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?

He’s the “Face of the Network!” DARBY’s the sell-out, not Matt! And when Matt gets the chance, he’ll show how extreme Big Money Matt still is! Did you just see how he leeched the life out of this underling? That’s what Hardy will do to Darby when he takes the TNT Championship! The truth is the truth, but is Hardy still wrong about The Relentless?
The Hybrid2 VS Bear Country!
Angelico & Jack Evans know Boulder & Bronson are headed for a clash of titans with Jurassic Express, but that won’t scare them off! Can TH2 keep from getting lost in Bear Country in the Dark? Or will they merely whet the appetite as the bears head for 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.
