Team Taz is here!

Ricky Starks and Taz himself accompany The Machine to the ring and Taz says what we’re about to witness is the FTW Champion live on Dynamite! But, Taz is a little distracted because look who is up in the nosebleeds. It’s “The face of the network,” the brand new TNT Champion, Darby Allin. Let’s hear it for him! Fans cheer but Taz gives Darby some advice. Last time they saw him, he was splattered on the hood of his own car, courtesy of Team Taz. Taz tells Darby to keep his “narrow ass” in his seat and stay away from the ring. If he doesn’t, he’s getting put out again! And while he’s sitting there, go call Cody Rhodes and let him know the same thing! If Cody crosses paths with them, he’ll get his ass kicked again!

Here’s the deal: The Machine is about to wrestle “a man who is respected in locker rooms all over this world.” Cage is about to wrestle a man who respects those who came before him. Darby doesn’t have that capability! Taz is talking about Matt Sydal! Sydal and Darby have a lot in common: tenacious, pugnacious and fearless, as well as victories over mega stars. Darby beat Cody, Sydal holds a victory over Chris Jericho. That’s no joke and Sydal is no joke, so Taz wants this to happen right now! Cage VS Sydal, let’s go!

Matt Sydal VS Brian Cage w/ Team Taz!

Who can stop the Path of Cage? Sydal is going to try. But will the high-flyer be sent flying by the Swolverine as a message to the Relentless TNT Champion?

The bell rings and Sydal says his third eye is too powerful. Cage lifts Sydal but Sydal slips off! Sydal ducks and dodges to then enziguri Cage to a corner! And then he hits a basement dropkick! But Cage gets right up to throw Sydal to the corner and throw clothesline after clothesline! Cage whips Sydal corner to corner hard! Fans duel as Cage drags Syyal up and CHOPS him! Cage wrenches Sydal and reels him in over a OVERHEAD suplex! Fans cheer the display of power and Cage clubs Sydal. Cage whips, Sydal kicks back and throws forearms! Sydal runs, but into a hip toss backbreaker! Fans duel again as Cage stalks behind Sydal.

Cage drags Sydal up, whips him corner to corner hard again, then takes his time walking over. Fans rally up but Cage RAMS into Sydal! And again! Cage almost puts Sydal into the post! But he brings him back in for a BACKBREAKER! Sydal flounders but Cage looms over him. Cage drags Sydal up, bumps him off buckles and throws forearms! The ref reprimands, Cage drags Sydal up and whip shim corner to corner. Sydal goes up and over and dropkicks! Cage stays up to CLOBBER Sydal! Starks is ringside to mock Sydal’s third eye while Cage stalks over. Fans rally up but Cage drags Sydal up to do bicep curls with him! After a set of 10, Cage FALL AWAY SLAMS Sydal away! Cover, TWO!

Cage keeps his cool as Sydal survives and fans rally up. Cage digs a knee in for the motorcycle stretch but Sydal endures. Fans continue to rally, Sydal fights his way up then drops down to kick Cage! Sydal KICKS and CHOPS on repeat! Then he throws haymakers and whips, but Cage reveres to scoop, only for Sydal to slip out and KICK again! Cage puts Sydal in a corner to clothesline! And uppercut! And enziguri! Cage GERMAN SUPLEXES but Sydal lands on his feet! Cage pops Sydal up, blocks the rana but Sydal slips out. Sydal ducks the clothesline and manages a POP UP BOMB?! Cage gets to the ramp, Sydal climbs up and leaps, METEORA! Taz can’t believe the impact!

Sydal puts Cage in the ring and climbs up again. But Cage gets up and under the shooting star. Cage blocks the kick, gut wrenches and lifts but Sydal sunset flips! Cage stays up, Sydal slips out the back to KICK away on the leg, then QUESTION MARK! PAGE TURNER! Cover, TWO!! Sydal STANDING SKY TWISTERS! Cover, TWO!! Cage is still in this and Taz is growing worried. Starks coaches Cage up while fans rally and duel. Sydal KICKS Cage in the chest, and then KICKS him in the back! Sydal wrenches and kicks but into a pump handle, but Sydal slips out! Cage rolls Sydal, spins but the discus misses, Sydal SOBATS and ROUNDHOUSES! PAGE- NO! DISCUS!!

Cage fires up and fans duel again. Cage drags Sydal up, reel shim in and suplexes, but into a RANA! Cover, TWO!?! Cage barely escapes and Sydal can’t believe it! Fans duel about the count, Sydal KNEES Cage down! Sydal hurries to a corner, climbs up top, Taz panics but Cage catches the blockbuster to a DRILL CLAW!! Cover, Cage wins!

Winner: Brian Cage, by pinfall

Taz is very relieved and is excited to see the power of the Machine! Team Taz regroups and Starks says that was incredible! What everyone feels now is what we felt at Full Gear! Team Taz is officially ranked because they get things done! The next step is the TNT Championship! It doesn’t matter who is in the way, they are putting you in the grave! A promise on Anita’s life, Team FTW’s presence will be felt and the revolution will be televised!

 

Cody Rhodes is here!

The American Nightmare is back with his full name, but without the title. “It seems like we’re having a bit of a weather, huh? You guys okay?” Cody will go ahead and say like he has on social media, congratulations to the new TNT Champion, Darby Allin. “In the spirit of full transparency, I can go ahead and say that Arn Anderson and myself will not be seeking a rematch at this time.” There’s another match, another loss, Cody wants to expunge and be vindicated. He is strongly considering a match with MJF. Whoa, who is this magically appearing behind him? “Can I help you?” She snatches the mic right from him and says, “I don’t know. Can you?”

“Cody, how dare you sit here and lie to our prestigious AEW audience?” She says to everyone wondering, she is Jade Cargill. And she is the “Total Package, baby!” Cody applauds the bravado as she continues. “I’ve been sitting on the sideline week after week, studying my competition. And you, Cody Rhodes, the American Nightmare. The Prince of Pro-Wrestling.” In fact, she remembers him saying he’s a Giant Killer. What does he know about giants? There is nothing giant about him. Whoa~! She knows a giant. A real giant. “And slick statements like yours? That’s an echo loud enough to wake him.” Next time Cody thinks out loud, she suggests he keeps that s*it to himself! Watch out, giant killer. She is nothing to be played with.

“Oh and by the way, congratulations on your name. But I guess you didn’t have the balls to go by one name. That giant you were talking about? He was the real star. And you know what his name is? Shaq.” But then Brandi comes out and asks Jade, “Who the hell told you it was open mic night, b*tch?!” UH OH! Jade lookin’ real confused so Brandi will make this real clear! Jade up here, in BRANDI’S house, smackin’ her lips at Brandi’s man, and now she’s Brandi’s problem! UH OH! Brandi will make this real easy, too. “Don’t you ever, EVER talk to him like that again! Don’t you even LOOK at him!” And y’know what else? Take that ratchet triflin’ ass out of here, and do not come back until Brandi sends for you. “Got that, heifer?! Good, great, cool. B*tch, get yo’ ass outta here.”

Brandi goes to leave, and Jade gives her a pat on the butt?! Staff hurries out here to keep this from firing off! Will the Nightmare Family have their hands full with Shaquille O’Neil’s family? But wait! Cage comes back to sneak attack Cody! POWERBOMB!! Starks returns to add on, but here comes Darby! Darby got out of his seat and went right to ringside! He gets in, dodges Starks and springboards to Trust Fall and weaponize his jacket of thumbtacks! Starks scrambles away but Cage stares him down. So Code gets Cage with an uppercut! Darby runs in to BACK BODY BLOCK with the tack jacket!

Cage bails out and regroups with Starks and Taz! Cody dares them to try some more but Taz has his guys fall back. Will Hobbs shows up, too! Team Taz definitely takes their leave now! Will Cody, Hobbs and Darby take the fight to Team Taz and finally shut them up?

 

Backstage interview with Jon Moxley.

He is STILL AEW World Champion after perhaps the most violent, physically draining match in this company’s history. Moxley made Eddie Kingston say “I Quit,” but Alex Marvez asks if Moxley is worried about his new contender, Kenny Omega. Moxley says something just occurred to him while enduring more pain than he has in his life. It wasn’t that he didn’t want to say “I Quit,” it’s that he just couldn’t. Moxley first came here, the responsibility of being champion didn’t really interest him. He just wanted to snap bones, hurt people, knock them out, enjoy the thrill of combat and the roar of the crowd in the greatest sport there is.

But things change. You grow up in this business. And finally, Moxley realized this title everyone who can’t pay their bills, who are disenfranchised. This title is for every little kid who gets teased for being a pro-wrestling fan. Moxley can’t and won’t quit, he will never quit. It doesn’t matter what lays ahead. And he has a big challenge in one of the greatest wrestlers to ever live in Kenny Omega. Moxley won that legendary battle. But beating him once is one thing. Beating him twice? That takes someone really special, and that is Moxley. Moxley is the greatest wrestler in the world today! He creates magic in the ring. If anyone can beat Omega twice, it’s him. But he’s just a man. One day, someone will shut Moxley’s lights off. But if Omega’s going to try, then good luck.

 

BREAKING NEWS on Moxley VS Omega!

The AEW World Championship match between Maniac and Cleaner is coming up fast! December 2nd, we will have this rematch from Full Gear 2019!! Who will close the year out with that title?!

Allie had her fun toying with the emotions of QT Marshall, but is back with The Fam. There’s no more games and anything goes! Will QT and Dustin Rhodes finally pay the Bunny back for all she and her family did to them?

Looking around the ring, the origins of this match type become clear.

Blade bumps into Allie and Allie falls through the table!! Allie suffers karma! Dustin uses the COW BELL on Blade! DIAMOND CUTTER onto the chains! Cover, Natural Nightmares win!!

Winners: The Natural Nightmares, by pinfall

This was a brutal way for this grudge to end, but QT has gotten his revenge on the Bunny that used him and the Butcher and Blade that abused him! Will QT and Dustin head up the ranks towards the AEW World Tag Team Championships?

 

AEW hears from Matt Hardy.

“Over the course of the last eight months, myself and Sammy Guevara have done everything to try and maim one another, to try and cripple one another, to try and end each other’s careers.” Over the course of Hardy’s 28 year career, there ha snot been a rivalry that has caused so much pain and rage, and spawned so many injuries. Hardy tells Sammy that he had very little respect for him, but after seeing his tenacity and resilience, there is some respect now. That moment at All Out, Hardy’s confidence took a shot. That’s why he had to do what he did at Full Gear. “It was the only way this blood vendetta could end.” Sammy had to be DELETED, made OBSOLETE, and be BROKEN!

Sammy may have lost the rivalry, but he lost to an iconic wrestler like Hardy. Hardy knows Sammy will become an even more iconic wrestler for it, so do not squander this gift. Will Sammy’s brutal defeat only make him even stronger?

 

AEW presents the 2020 Inner Circle Induction Ceremony.

Wait, that implies there’s going to be more in the future? That aside, MJF won his way into the faction by defeating Chris Jericho at Full Gear. As agreed, Maxwell Jacob Friedman will now be added to their ranks. Justin Roberts introduces Le Champion to begin the ceremony! The Demo God is smiling as he goes to the podium, and enjoys the fans singing Judas for him. Jericho thanks us and says tonight is a monumental night in Jacksonville! “Because for the first time ever since the formation of The Inner Circle on October 2nd, 2019, on the very first episode of Dynamite, we’re adding not just one but two members to our ranks, right here tonight!” Fans have mixed feelings about that.

Before introduction the new, here are the OG IC! Santana, Ortiz and Jake Hager head to the ring, but Sammy is not here. Worry about that later, worry more about the two men that will make this faction even more dominant than before! Jericho introduces Wardlow and MJF! They both make their entrance, Wardlow of course holding the ropes open for MJF. MJF is “emotional” but apologizes. It has taken a long and hard road to get here. Real men cry, guys. MJF has been in this industry for five long years. And when he first started, his dad gave him a small loan of one million dollars. MJF was cold and alone, but he made it work.

Now there is a lot of pressure at being the Ratings Ruler feels at just 24 years of age, nothing you 9-to-5 types could never handle. But that pressure made MJF the diamond he is before us today. MJF took the time to write some poetry, and has a feeling his “homies” will “dig” this. “I got everything, I got everything. I cannot complain, I cannot. I don’t even know how much I really made. I forgot, it’s a lot. Nevermind what I got, boy, don’t watch that, cuz I came up, that’s all me. Stay true, that’s all me. No help, that’s all me. All me for real. Thank you.” Ortiz says that’s just Drake’s song! MJF says it was all his own work. Chris, see through the charade! MJF doesn’t belong!

Jericho has them to stop. If they have a problem with MJF, take it up with him. Jericho made the challenge, but MJF beat him to get in. But Jericho does want to say this, as a veteran of 30 years, he knows this business better than anyone. And with MJF’s mind plus Wardlow’s muscle, the Inner Circle will be stronger than ever, and they’re already stronger than The Walls of Jericho! “This is the new team, this is the new squad, this is the new unstoppable force in AEW, and you will make it work! You understand?!” They’re a team. MJF doesn’t want tension. He doesn’t know who Drake is, but he started from the bottom and now he is here in the Inner Circle! That’s more Drake!

But MJF points out that they’re not just here to celebrate him. They’re here to celebrate JERICHO’S BIRTHDAY~! Surprise~! Balloons! Confetti! OO-EE, OO-EE! Wardlow whispers something to MJF. Oh, right, of course! Cut the music because MJF has a very urgent announcement. “Next week, we’re going to Vegas!!” And it’s all on MJF! Now all together! Happy birthday to you~! Happy birthday to you~! Happy birthday, Dear Chris Jericho the Goat greatest of all time~! Happy birthday to you~! “INNER CIRCLE, WE’RE GOING TO VEGAS! WOO!!” Well that won Hager and Santana over. But Ortiz is still a hard sell, and we have no idea where Sammy is so who knows how he feels. Will the Vegas trip bring the new and improved(?) Inner Circle closer together?

 

Backstage interview with The Young Bucks.

Alex Marvez is a bit worried talking to the NEW AEW World Tag Team Champions. Oh, right, that… Well, Marvez moves past that to say that Matt and Nick Jackson really are the best tag team in the world now, having beat FTR for these titles. So what’s next? Well they just went through hell, having finally achieved the biggest accomplishment of their entire careers. It’s hard to say what’s next. But the world surely wants a rematch. Before that, Matt just wants to say, “Young Bucks” and “tag team champions” just go so well together, don’t they? And again, sorry for kicking him.

But now that the Bucks are the top of the mountain, and they’re being asked what’s next, Matt says they need some “fresh opponents.” That brings them to a couple months ago, the Instagram message Matt received from a “young, up and coming independent tag team called Top Flight.” Took him all about 30 seconds to look through a music video to see those two have something. Young, hungry daredevils who are real life brothers. Reminds him of a certain team. But if opportunity is what they want, that opportunity is what they get. Next week, on Dynamite, Top Flight VS the NEW top guys. Young Bucks out. And again, sorry for kicking Marvez. What big news for young Darrius and Dante Martin! Win or lose, will they their own “brush with greatness” launch them to new heights?

 

BREAKING NEWS for next week’s Dynamite!

After the confrontation between Cody, Darby and Team Taz, a 2v2 tag match will happen between them! Will the American Nightmare and new Face of TNT take down the FTW Champion Brian Cage and Absolute Ricky Starks?

The Chair Man and SoCal Uncensored’s Closer will finally settle the score that has been building for over a month now! From Dark to Dynamite, will Spears reach #PERFECT10N? Or will he just Reach for the Sky?

The bell rings and the two circle. Fans rally for Scorpio as he and Spears tie up. They go around, break, and Spears shouts “THIEF!” at the man he feels keeps stealing his moments! Scorpio ROCKS Spears for that, throws more forearms, then whips him to ropes. Spears runs Scorpio over, but Scorpio gets right up as Spears keeps moving and Scorpio chops Spears down!

The ref checks the black glove but it’s not loaded yet. Spears stalks Scorpio to the corner, brings Scorpio up but Scorpio hits back! And CHOPS back! Scorpio backs Spears down again, whips him but Spears reverses to reel him in again. Scorpio slips out of the tilt-o-whirl to hit the COMPLETE SHOT! Both men are down, the ref starts a standing count and the fans rally up. Scorpio gets to a corner, aims at Spears as he goes up, and AEW returns to single picture as Spears dodges the missile dropkick! Spears fist bumps Tully then wags a finger at Scorpio.

Spears tells Scorpio he’s done for, and he fireman’s carries. Scorpio slips off to arm-drag Spears away! Scorpio clotheslines Spears and himself out!

Spears hides the evidence and Tully raises his hand. The ref checks the glove but now it’s clean! Will Tully’s evil genius continue to help Spears steal wins and climb the rankings?

 

Backstage interview with Kenny Omega.

Dasha was here with him but Omega ran off. He didn’t say much, either, so guess back to ringside. Marvez hurries after Omega in the parking lot but Omega’s on the phone. Omega tells them he’ll call back, but it was great seeing them. Omega talks to Marvez and the news is out. Their match is happening, but it isn’t news to him. It’s something Omega’s lived with a couple days now. It’s the reality that Omega is stepping out of the position as an afterthought, and stepping into the #1 contender’s spot and the #1 position in all of wrestling. Moxley holds something Omega wants and needs.

To hold that title is to take back something that Moxley took from him: being the face on all the magazines, being the man that is most talked about in all of wrestling, and being the man that everyone expected him to be. Omega hears the whispers, the chatter. “Where is the Cleaner? Where’s the Best Bout Machine? Where’s the Kenny Omega that we saw in NJPW?” The one with the five-star, six-star, seven-star matches? Well Omega has proven with the eliminator tournament that he’s never left. He is just ready to reassume the role and the responsibility of being the best in the world. The biggest Dynamite of all time, Moxley and Omega for the “first time ever.”

When Omega heard Moxley’s name and wearing the belt, there was a feeling of nostalgia or deja vu. Omega swears they had a match before, but when he looked in the AEW record books, there was not a record of them have even one singles match, under regular rules in a regular ring. So it’s never actually happened. They’re 0-0. What will happen when Moxley faces Omega in a regular match? We’ll find out. Moxley sounds ready, so is Omega. But Omega has a flight to catch. “Good-bye, goodnight, all that stuff. Thank you, please enjoy Dynamite.” The #1 contender has spoken, what happens when we “officially” see Maniac VS Cleaner?

 

Tay Conti w/ Anna Jay VS Red Velvet w/ Brandi Rhodes!

Jade Cargill may have riled up The Queen of AEW, but there is still business the CBO needs to handle. But she and the Queenslayer are battling through their friends and proxies first! Will the Brazilian blackbelt score one for Number 99? Or will Velvet stir it up and taste sweet, sweet victory?

The bell rings, Tay and Velvet tie up and break, then go again. Velvet puts Tay in a corner, the ref calls for a break and Velvet lets off. Velvet steps to Tay, and pats her shoulder for making her flinch. Tay turns things around to dig Velvet into the corner. Tay lets off but also step feints, and then pats Velvet’s head for making her flinch. Velvet and Tay circle and tie up again, Velvet gets around to roll Tay up, ONE! Velvet has the legs, turns Tay over and ties the legs up, then uses body scissors to turn Tay back over, modified bridging cover, TWO! Velvet rushes in but Tay trips her up. ONE, Tay arm-drags Velvet but Velvet arm-drags back! The two stand off and fans fire up!

Tay and Velvet circle again but give a quick handshake to show there’s still respect. They tie up, Tay headlocks but Velvet powers out. Tay runs Velvet over, brushes herself off, and speeds things up. Velvet side steps and hits a leg lariat to take Tay down! Standing moonsautl! Cover, ONE, but Velvet puts Tay in a corner. Velvet digs her boots in and does a split! The re counts, Tay pushes Velvet away then pushes her again. Velvet pushes back, throws a forearm but Tay gives it back! Judo throw, then another!

But Tay’s too wiped out to cover! Both women are down, catching their breath, and fans rally up. Tay sits up first and goes after Velvet to finally cover, TWO! Tay keeps on Velvet with elbows to the shoulder! Over and over and over and over! Cover, TWO! Velvet reaches for ropes but Tay drags her into a seated full nelson. Fans rally as Velvet endures and fights her way up. Velvet booty bumps free but Tay reels her into a roll-up! TWO and Tay dead lifts Velvet, but Velvet counters to a guillotine facelock! But Tay powers out to suplex Velvet down! Cover, TWO!

Fans fire up and Jay coaches Tay. Velvet flounders but Tay is after her. Tay brings Velvet up to knee her hard and low over and over! Velvet is in trouble as AEW goes to break.

AEW returns, Velvet again fights out of the full nelson with booty bumps. Velvet is free and she arm-drags Tay away! Tay comes back, but Velvet dodges her in the corner! Velvet rallies with big clotheslines and a back elbow! Tay staggers up into Velvet’s wheelbarrow and BULLDOG! Fans fire up with Velvet as she drags Tay up to whip and drop toehold onto ropes! Velvet runs to KNEE her down! Velvet keeps on Tay with a whip to the corner. Velvet runs in to SHINING WIZARD! Tay is dazed, Velvet cravats for a running STUNNER! Cover, TWO!! Tay stays alive and Velvet can’t believe it! Fans fire up as Velvet drags Tay up. Tay breaks free, DOUBLE ROUNDHOUSES take them both down!

Brandi checks on Velvet but Jay slips Tay a chair! Tay isn’t sure but Jay is Dark Order all the way. Tay refuses to use the chair and kicks it out! Velvet LEG LARIATS her down! High stack cover, TWO!! Velvet brings Tay up, mule kicks low then runs, to BOOT! But Tay dodges?! Tay rolls Velvet, reels her in for a BOOT of her own! Then Tay brings Velvet up for a gut wrench, Gory Especial, spinning KNEE!! Cover, Tay wins!

Winner: Tay Conti, by pinfall

Not only did she get a big win, she did things her way! Jay has mixed feelings about that, but the point was to win! Will Tay #JoinDarkOrder if it means changing her ways? Or will the Dark Order accept Tay as she is?

 

Backstage interview with The Inner Circle.

Does Marvez see these tickets? They’re going to Vegas, baby! Look, it’s first class! You ever been to Vegas, Marvez? Probably to OLD Vegas, stuck playing Go Fish! They’re going first class! MJF adds on, telling “Mark-vez” that the trip is all on MJF! But then Sammy finally arrives! Sammy got an email about going to the beach but they weren’t there. They were here. MJF says he sent an update email about to go to Daily’s. No, the ONE email Sammy got was about the beach. It seems Sammy was the only one left out, again. Sammy says this is BS! Jericho keeps the peace and says they all understand if Sammy only got the one email. But they’re all going to Vegas, it’s cool.

The rest leave but MJF talks to Sammy. He really did mean to send a second email. Now, here’s his ticket to Vegas. Remember: all on MJF. Sammy still stews about the email, but will the Vegas trip make it up to him?

 

There are MORE big matches set for next week’s Dynamite!

On top of the grudge match of Cody & Darby VS Cage & Starks, on top of Top Flight getting to face The Young Bucks, Orange Cassidy and Kip Sabian will go 1v1! Will Freshly Squeezed get even with Superbad on behalf of Best Friends?

 

Eddie Kingston heads to the ring.

“Hold on, hold on, hold on real quick.” He tells fans to stop cheering his name, he knows his name. He wants to speak real quick. “At Full Gear, your World Champion, Jon Moxley, made me say I quit. And that’s something I gotta deal with and live with.” But unlike fans who would wrestle once then quit to never try again, “I will never stop, and I will be worlds champion!” Now, to pressing matters. Kingston being the leader of violent men and women, we’re about to see Penta VS Fenix! And we will all see “two of the greatest luchadors ever to do it.” And all Kingston can say is, “You’re welcome.”

Penta El Zero M VS Rey Fenix!

The Lucha Brothers once again face each other 1v1 in AEW! The world title eliminator tournament match between them was rough, but they stayed brothers through it. Will they still be family after doing it all over again?

AEW returns once more as Penta makes his entrance. The bell rings, fans chant for “Lucha Brothers!” as the two stare down. They rush each other, Fenix goes Matrix to avoid the clothesline but Penta avoids the dropkick. Penta stomps but Fenix gets under the victory roll, TWO! Penta SUPERKICKS Fenix then runs, but into a BOOT! Penta boots but Fenix spins to HEEL KICK, Penta ENZIGURIS! Both brothers are down and fans fire up! Kingston says his better friend is the better but he’s said both are his best friend at different points so… Fenix gets to one corner, Penta to the other, they run at each other and double clotheslines collide! Both stay up so Fenix spins Penta to bring him up. Penta slips off, Fenix somersaults and springs up to wheelbarrow, victory roll! TWO and Penta brings Fenix up!

Fenix throws elbows and standing switches to shove Penta. Penta goes up and over and then gets Fenix for a modified sunset flip, TWO! Fans fire up as the brothers stand. Fenix dodges and runs, headscissors throws Penta out! Penta dares Fenix to do something, Fenix runs but Penta gets in to send Fenix out! Fenix almost saves himself but he still bumps into railing! Fans fire up as Penta builds speed, but Fenix somersaults in to shotgun dropkick! Fenix kips up, fans fire up with him, and he runs, into a tilt-o-whirl gut wrench! Penta figure fours the legs for a standing Cloverleaf! Fenix endures, Penta drops him, sits him up and digs at the mask?! How can he do that to his own brother?!

Penta stops short of completely exposing Fenix and then wraps him up in a chinlock. Penta throws punches, the ref reprimands and Penta lets off. Penta chokes Fenix on the ropes! Fenix defends his face more than anything, but Penta stops to whip him to ropes. SUPERKICK! Penta fires up, swaggers around, then sits Fenix up, and keeps him up by the piece of torn mask! Penta wraps a chinlock on and grinds Fenix down but fans rally up. Fenix fights as AEW goes picture in picture.

Penta brings Fenix around, KICKS his leg out from under him, and Fenix tumbles out of the ring. Penta follows but Fenix CHOPS! Penta CHOPS and it’s a chop fight! Penta CHOPS Fenix off his feet! Penta brings Fenix up to POST him! Fenix is down, Penta tells the ref to relax as he goes to fetch him. Penta drags Fenix up by his beat up mask and put shim back in the ring. Penta drags Fenix up, whips him to ropes again, and tilt-o-whirl BACKBREAKERS! Fenix writhes but Penta just soaks up the heat. Penta has Fenix against ropes and bends him back! Penta bites the torn piece of mask then drops Fenix at the ref’s count. The ref reprimands, Penta brings Fenix up and whips again to clobber him with an elbow!

Penta grabs a leg and drops an elbow on the knee! Fenix clutches the leg, Penta covers, TWO! Fenix narrowly escapes but Penta is on him again. Penta brings Fenix up but Fenix fights back. They brawl, Fenix CHOPS but Penta CHOPS! Fenix sits down but he slaps the cobwebs out. Penta dares Fenix to get up but Fenix dares Penta to do something. Penta brings Fenix up but Fenix CHOPS first! Penta CHOPS back! Penta reels Fenix in, “CERO! MIEDO”! Tuck and lift, but Fenix flips out to arm-drag and cover, TWO!! Penta BOOTS Fenix to the corner, then runs in, to a BOOT! Fenix puts Penta in, goes up the ropes and SOBATS! Fenix runs corner to corner, Penta pops him up and out to the ramp! Fenix lands on his feet and enziguris back!

Fenix goes up the way, runs back to ropes to springboard and RANA! Cover, TWO!! Penta narrowly escapes now but Fenix fires up! Fenix dodges, handsprings, and CUTTERS! “This is Awesome!” as Fenix covers, TWO! Penta is still in this and Fenix drags Penta up. Now Fenix TEARS Penta’s mask! He’s all but exposed Penta!! And only now is Kingston upset! Fenix drags Penta up, but both brothers have the torn piece of mask! They throw haymakers over and over, then headbutts! Fenix knees low, then again! Fenix CHOPS Penta, then runs, to somersault, but into Penta’s dragon sleeper! “CERO! MIEDO!” INVERTED BLOCKBUSTER! Cover, TWO!! Fenix survives and Kingston gives him credit.

Fans rally for the Lucha Brothers again as the standing count climbs. Fenix and Penta slowly stir at around 3, then sit up. Penta fires up, makes sure his mask is somewhat on, and then brings Fenix up. “CERO! MIEDO!” But Fenix headscissors out of the suplex! Fenix runs to FLY, TORNILLO takes Penta down! Fans are thunderous as Fenix looms over Penta. Fenix drags Penta up into the ring, then he climbs up to the top rope. SWANTON BOMB! Cover, TWO!! Penta survives and Fenix can’t believe it! Fenix drags Penta up to a fireman’s carry, but Penta slips out to the apron. Penta suplexes Fenix up and out to join him, kicks low and reel shim in! But Fenix pushes him away, so Penta SUPERKICKS him! Penta tucks Fenix in, APRON PACKAGE PILEDRIVER!!

The referee goes out to check Fenix and even Kingston says that was too much. Penta leaves Fenix behind but Fenix somehow rises! So Penta leaps to SUPER DESTROYER to the floor!! Penta puts Fenix in, drags him back up and tells him, “CERO! MIEDO!” Another tuck, another PACKAGE DRIVER!! Cover, Penta wins!

Winner: Penta El Zero M, by pinfall

Kingston says there’s some time left on the show so he talks. “This is Awesome! Clap clap, whatever you marks do. Fight forever, right? That chant.” But ladies and gentlemen, what we just saw was two of the greatest in the world today! Two brothers fighting for competition, and Kingston’s best friend showed his own brother who is boss! Kingston congratulates Penta, Cero Miedo! He kicks Fenix out of the ring?! Kingston is proud of Penta, that’s why he’s Kingston’s best friend. Penta doesn’t need anyone! Penta doesn’t need that “dead weight.”

But wait, who is this? PAC IS BACK!! The Bastard returns and is seething as he stares at Kingston! “Eddie Kingston! Did you think I’d be gone forever, huh!? Well bad news, scumbag! The Bastard’s back, and you have made a very, very big mistake!” Kingston taunts Pac while referees hold Pac back! Pac wants to unleash all of his aggression on The Mad King for hijacking his team! Tony Khan just tells us through commentary that Pac’s return is set for next week! Pac will take on another member of Kingston’s Fam in The Blade! But Pac almost gets at Kingston now! How long will Pac have to wait to get his revenge?


My Thoughts:

A great episode to follow up Full Gear! Really good aftermath interview promos, such as Moxley and Omega both referencing last year’s “Unsanctioned” Full Gear main event in their own way. Moxley knows what we know and that is that he won, but Omega goes with what’s on the kayfabe win-loss record to kind of frame who is the Face and Heel here in a way. We’re getting their rematch in a month, and that is going to be a big episode towards the Revolution build. It’s really great the Bucks are giving Top Flight a Dynamite debut with their match next week. I felt Darrius and Dante were a great team but their showing on Dark was a bit wonky because something was off with Frankie Thomas. But Top Flight against the Bucks, we’ll really get to see what the Martin brothers can do against the Jacksons.

Team Taz had a good promo on Darby, Cage had a great match with Sydal, especially since Sydal got to look great. The segment with Jade Cargill interrupting Cody was an interesting one, but it clearly means the TNT Network crossover is happening. Cody VS Shaq, AEW’s first celebrity match, that’s actually a great one. Brandi getting in Jade’s face was great, too, I would love to see that as a match. Darby having a thumbtack jacket is exactly what he should be wearing. His tag match with Cody against Team Taz is going to be a lot of fun. Tay VS Velvet was a lot of fun, especially with Jay trying to tempt Tay to the Dark Order side but Tay resisting. I think Jay’s next story should really be with her trying to recruit Tay more and more. Either outcome, Tay joining Dark Order or becoming a new enemy, will be great for them and the AEW Women’s Division.

That Bunkhouse match was incredible! I should’ve figured they’d have multiple blood spots, and for Allie to face comeuppance directly with a table spot. Natural Nightmares win to move past that story and to possibly head for the tag titles. That’d be an interesting match as Cody is still friends with the Bucks but it’s literally his family on the other side, Cody might end up in the middle of that feud. The “induction ceremony” for MJF was pretty good. MJF saying the night wasn’t just about him was a great way to trick us into thinking he’d give Wardlow even a moment of spotlight, but it was the next ploy in his scheme. Sammy getting a email about the beach but no second email was definitely to further those plans. Something needs to happen on the “Vegas trip” that brings into question whether or not Sammy stays in the faction, possibly through a match of MJF VS Sammy.

Spears VS Scorpio was a really good match, and worth the wait from when it was first advertised for a couple weeks ago. The metal slug was introduced in a very clever way this time, and Spears winning thanks to that surely means this continues. The feud will help both guys bide some time while the singles titles are tied up in other stories. I would think Scorpio comes out the winner in this feud, since commentary even pointed out how he is the third winningest man in AEW, behind Cody and Kenny. Depending on who wins Moxley VS Omega, I feel like Scorpio against either of them would make for a great match. Moxley’s fought mostly sluggers and powerhouses, but taking on someone truly athletic would be fresh. Omega VS Scorpio would be even wilder because they’re both so fast and agile, it’d be about who can keep going.

The Penta VS Fenix rematch was a great match, and a lot of great story given the first time around, as well as Kingston on commentary denying the fact he is the reason for the dysfunction. I finally realized with this match that the luchador lore of the masks being sacred is mostly for kayfabe. Otherwise, why would they be so willing to have their masks torn up? These two both went through a lot of the same in Lucha Underground, so clearly it’s a story telling device. Penta wins to tie up the series between the brothers, even if the record says Fenix “vacated” his win from the tournament. And then PAC returning was great! Pac wants after Kingston, Archer wants after The Fam, will they end up a duo instead of Death Triangle reforming? At least, I expect Pac and Fenix to take on Kingston and Penta as the payoff.

My Score: 9.1/10

PLAY BY PLAY

The Young Bucks speak.

“Why did we do what we did last week?” That is to say, they turned on Jon Moxley to save Kenny Omega. “Simple: We chose friendship.” Moxley, thanks for pushing them over the edge. This isn’t just a club of friends throwing up a hand gesture, but a family that loves. And as for Don Callis, he was right about one thing: the Bucks changed. In-ring, they’re still the best damn tag team. But backstage, they felt like frauds. They took the paydays and were no longer hungry. They let others change the narrative and take credit for their work. Matt tells Nick that he’s no longer content. They need to bring back the old Bucks. Or rather, show the world a newer, better version of themselves. What will these new Young Bucks look like in tonight’s AEW Tag Team Championship match?

 

Mike Tyson speaks.

“Hi, I’m Mike Tyson. And I’m so delighted to be tonight’s enforcer for Jericho’s-” But MJF interrupts “Mikey, Michael, the Mikenator” to ask what’s going on. Tyson asks what he’s doing here, and MJF says sure, he might’ve been barely born when Tyson was on top, but MJF’s dad said Tyson was a big deal so kudos to him. But the Pinnacle are a little peeved with Tyson over last week. Well Tyson’s mad, too! Of course! He has every right to be! And if anyone understands better than MJF, they don’t exist. MJF gets the idea of keeping friends close and enemies closer. Jericho is Tyson’s enemy, and if there was any time to strike, it’s right now! No, Tyson’s enemy is right in front of him.

MJF wants Tyson to slow down a second. All MJF is saying, he doesn’t need to cheat in this scenario. All MJF wants is Tyson to be on the right side of history. The last thing MJF wants for Tyson is to have regrets after tonight. Looking at Tyson’s face, there’s already one. But this right here is a blank check! Just think about it. Tyson takes that check, rips it up, and chews it to spit it in MJF’s face! MJF says he’ll remember that! Will Tyson make sure The Pinnacle gets what’s coming to them?

 

AEW World Tag Team Championships: The Young Bucks VS Death Triangle!

Matt & Nick promised to show us all a new side to them while still being THE best tag team in the world today! But will The Bastard & The Firebird ruin all of that right here to open Dynamite?

One thing that’s new is that they have Don Callis with them! The ring gear is of course new, as are the streamers flying through the air as opposed to Young Buck Bucks. The introductions are made as Callis joins commentary, the belts are raised and we begin to see if the new Bucks can prevent new champions from being crowned!

PAC and Matt start and circle as fans rally. They tie up, Pac powers Matt to a corner, but lets off as the ref counts. Pac pats Matt on the shoulder and Matt smirks as they reset. Matt and Pac tie up, Pac waistlocks, Matt switches but so does Pac. Matt drop toeholds, floats to facelock but Pac slips out to facelock back. Matt slips out to facelock but Pac wrenches out. Matt flips, kips up and wrenches to a wristlock. Pac uses ropes to flip through, wrench and headlock to the takeover! Matt headscissors, Pac kips free and he hits another headlock takeover, only for Matt to headscissor again. Again, Pac kips free but now Matt reverses the roles with his own headlock takeover.

Pac headscissors, Mat kips free and waves in Pac’s face. They go forehead to forehead, and Matt backs off, but to the wrong corner. Old habits die hard since he’s used to being on that side of the ring. Fenix laughs at Matt but Matt gets past Pac to tag out to Nick. Pac tags in Fenix and fans fire up as we see these two go again! Fenix and Nick approach, Fenix gets around to waistlock and ripcord but Nick waistlocks. Nick avoids elbows but not the trip up. Things speed up, Fenix handsprings over but Nick BOOTS him down! Nick goes to the apron, baits Fenix in, Nick backflips while Fenix tiger feints! Nick slides in as Fenix moonsaults out!

Matt gets moving, too, Fenix gets in but Nick sends Fenix to the ropes. Fenix tiger feints again but Nick avoids the heel kick! Fenix whips Nick, Nick slips around to arm-drag! Nick avoids the dropkick, Fenix avoids one now, and both men see the other ready to dropkick again, so they both stop right there. But then Nick CLOBBERS Fenix with a clothesline! The top teams in the rankings are in the crowd watching, from Jurassic Express and Best Friends to SoCal Uncensored and the Hardy Family Office’s Butcher & Blade. Nick drags Fenix over, tags Matt in, and the Bucks bring Fenix up to double whip. Nick back drops but Fenix uses that to RANA Matt!

Things speed up, Fenix springboards to FLYING HEADBUTT Nick! Pac gets in as the Bucks bail out, and he FLIES to take Matt out with a Fosbury Flop! Fenix DIVES to take Nick out into barriers! Fans fire up for Death Triangle as Fenix puts Matt back in. Fenix CHOPS Matt, pushes him down and ROCKS him with a forearm to the back of the head! Fenix scoops and SLAMS, then tags in Pac. Fenix stands on Matt, then Pac stands on Matt. Pac pushes Matt around, blocks Matt’s kick, and tags Fenix in. Fenix jumps over Matt, Pac spins him for Fenix to hold the foot, and Pac BOOTS Fenix in the back! Fenix spins Matt, Pac holds him, and Fenix SUPERKICKS Matt in the back!

Death Triangle double mule kick the legs, then they double BUZZSAW and double BASEMENT DROPKICK! Matt flops down and the fans fire up for Death Triangle! Cover, TWO! Fenix has Matt on ropes, clubs him then brings him up to knuckle lock. Fenix goes up, Matt trips him up! Fenix falls to the mat and Matt DECKS Pac! Tag to Nick, he runs and PENALTY KICKS Pac from the apron! Nick shoulders into Fenix and SLINGSHOT FACEBUSTERS! Nick grins and hopes the camera caught that. Fans rally as Nick scrapes Fenix’s face with his soles! Nick shoes off the Nike Diors but fans chant, “Those are Fake! Those are Fake!”

Nick drags Fenix over, bumps him off buckles, then tags Matt. The Bucks drag Fenix up to double whip, double hip toss, then cartwheel and double basement dropkick! Matt covers rather arrogantly, TWO! Fans rally for Fenix as Matt stalks after Fenix. Matt CLAWS Fenix’s back, then tags in Nick. The Bucks double whip, double hip toss but Fenix uses ropes to rebound and DOUBLE ARM-DRAG! Fenix avoids one superkick, bobs ‘n’ weaves with Nick and tags Pac in! Pac springboards to missile dropkick Nick down! Pac gets around Matt to back kick, front kick and back kick, then SWEEP the legs! Pac SNAP BRAINBUSTERS! Cover, TWO!! Matt lives and fans can’t believe it!

Pac drags Matt up, bumps him off buckles, then brings him around to bump off other buckles! Matt flops and flounders, Pac stalks up behind him. Pac taunts Nick as he brings Matt up and Matt throws body shots, but Pac eggs him on. Pac KICKS Matt, and KICKS, and KICKS! Pac runs but Nick trips him! Pac ROCKS Nick but Matt WRECKS Pac! The Bucks stomp away on Pac, Fenix runs over but he gets mugged! Nick CLAWS Fenix’s back, Matt drags Pac up and Nick has Fenix. The Bucks put two out, and DOUBLE APRON BOMB!! Fans chant “Young Bucks Suck!” and the ref reprimands but the damage is done!

Matt puts Pac on the apron, tags in Nick, and Nick stomps Pac down. Fans still rally for Death Triangle but Nick drags Pac up to wrench and whip him hard in the corner. Nick runs in to SHINING WIZARD in the corner! Tag to Matt, he drags Pac up and pushes him into buckles. Matt goes corner to corner while Nick holds Pack in, Matt handsprings and CLAWS Pac’s back! Pac staggers but he brawls with Matt as AEW goes picture in picture!

Matt CLUBS Pac down, kicks him around, then drops knees on his head! Matt wraps on a chinlock and grinds Pac down. Pac endures, fights, but Matt leans all his weight on the hold. The ref checks but Pac gets his second wind and fights his way up. Pac breaks free to ROCK Matt with forearm after forearm! Pac sees Fenix return but Matt throws him by his hair! Tag to Nick, and Nick brings Pac around to bump off the buckle! Nick digs his boot in, lets off as the ref counts, and Matt mockingly pats Pac on the head. Nick snapmares Pac, tags to Matt, face scrape and slingshots senton! Matt drags Pac up but Pac fires forearms again!

Pac back kicks, Matt trips him and tags in Nick! Catapult into the GAMANGIRI! Nick springboards to STOMP Pac into Matt’s knees! AEW returns to single picture as the Bucks taunt Fenix and the ref has to keep him back. The Bucks fake a tag so that Matt can stand on Pac’s head! The ref reprimands the standing on head but doesn’t realize the tag was faked. Nick tags back in for real, the Bucks whip Pac but Pac avoids the double superkicks! Pac throws Nick out, then throws Matt out to follow! Pac crawls for his corner but Nick is there to trip Fenix off the apron! Pac doesn’t tag out, and Matt gets in to rally fans up, but they boo.

Matt mockingly reaches for a tag, tags off Pac, and fires himself up! Matt rallies on Pac with big lariats, and mockingly does his old mannerisms. Matt brings Pac in to scoop and SLAM! Matt drops to his knees as if he’s emotional, and fans boo. But Pac gets up to CLOBBER Matt! Fans fire up now as both men are down and a standing count begins. Matt and Pac crawl for their corners, hot tags to Nick and Fenix! Fenix springboards to CROSSBODY! Fenix runs corner to corner but Nick dodges. Nick runs in but Fenix makes him straddle the rope! Matt runs in, Fenix intercepts with a kick and knuckle lock!

Nick survives and no one can believe it! Pac returns, Fenix tags him in, and Death Triangle gets Nick set up, wheelbarrow to DUMDUM STOMPS! Then SUPERKICK to BLUE THUNDER BOMB!! Cover, TWO!?!? The Bucks are still in this but fans are fired up! Pac drags Nick up but Nick jawbreakers! Tag to Matt and he runs in, but into a REBOUND GERMAN! Pac gets Matt back up with a dead lift, but Matt flails to get ropes! Fenix walks the tightrope to PENALTY KICK Matt!

Fenix FLIES to take Nick out, Pac GERMANS! Bridging cover, TWO!! Pac is beside himself but the fans are thunderous! Pac has Matt in a drop zone, he goes to a corner and climbs. Nick returns but Pac leaps over and comes back to BOOT! Matt SUPERKICKS Pac! Fenix SUPERKICKS Matt! Nick runs at Fenix, Fenix blocks the monkey flip, but Nick rebounds off ropes for a DESTROYER!! All four men are down but fans are thunderous again! “This is Awesome!” as Matt drags himself back into the ring. Fenix gets himself out of the ring while Matt and Pac stand. Pac and Matt throw forearms and haymakers back and forth, faster and faster!

Pac ROCKS Matt, runs in but Matt dumps him to the apron. Matt runs but Pac dumps Matt out! They brawl on the apron now! Pac HEADBUTTS Matt, but both Nick and Fenix trip their opponents off the apron! Fenix and Nick stare each other down, STEREO POISON-RANAS!! Nick takes Pac down, Fenix takes Matt down, but now they stare each other down. Fenix runs in, Nick tosses him over the railing, but Fenix lands on his feet! Fenix tries a springboard, but Nick SUPERKICKS him off the railing! Fenix still comes back, somersault CUTTER!! All four men are down on the outside now as fans are thunderous for “A E DUB! A E DUB!”

Winners: The Young Bucks, by pinfall (still AEW World Tag Team Champions)

New Bucks? Old Bucks? Better bucks? Worse Bucks? All that and more! Don Callis is proud of these two, since they sold their souls to him! Will Matt & Nick continue to be the champions by any means necessary?

 

Backstage interview with Hangman Page and The Dark Order.

The number one ranked male singles wrestler and his new friends are here, and Alex Marvez wants to ask him about everything going on with Kenny Omega, the Good Brothers and the Young Bucks. Hangman chugs his drink then says he’s glad Marvez is here. Quick update on John Silver’s shoulder- Ow! Wait, isn’t it the other shoulder that was hurt? Yeah but Hangman’s slap to the arm hurt this one… Well give it another four to six weeks after some vitamins, prayers and egg rolls. Speaking of, Hangman’s gonna go get some egg rolls. Are the Dark Order in? YEAH! Alright! That didn’t answer…

Rehab time, Johnny! Silver lifts the bad arm all the way to 90 degrees! AWESOME! Will the Meat Man be back so that he and Alex Reynolds can chase those AEW Tag Team Championships?

 

Backstage interview with Mike Tyson & The Inner Circle.

The last time Tyson was in AEW, he and Jericho were enemies. That doesn’t seem to be the case anymore, but why? Jericho says it’s because over a month ago, when the Inner Circle received the most vicious beating of their careers from The Pineapp- No, the Pinnacle, they decided to change their ways, have a new attitude, and right some of the wrongs they’ve committed. Jericho called some of the people he felt he owed an apology to. The first was to Tyson, the greatest boxing champion ever. But after being at each other’s throats for over 10 years from a 2010 knockout on a Monday night, Jericho realized he has a lot of respect for Tyson, because Tyson has remained relevant and stand on top for 30 years, just like Jericho.

Jericho told Tyson how he felt, and Tyson said if Jericho ever needed anything, he’d be there. And that’s when Jericho asked Tyson to have their backs against “My Jerkoff Friend and his band of sour men.” Tyson had their backs, and will be the special enforcer for Jericho VS Dax, a man who just a few weeks ago, the Inner Circle put 10 stitches in his head. But though Tyson is the special enforcer, Jericho wants him to call this down the middle. Tyson says he’s firm but fair. So may the best man win. Tyson is happy to be a friend, but he won’t take a side. If Jericho messes up, Tyson will knock him out again. Tyson doesn’t want that, and Jericho doesn’t either because he still remembers that punch. But there it is! Tyson is fair, firm and enforcing the match tonight!

 

Red Velvet VS Jade Cargill!

Though Velvet and Cody Rhodes lost to the giants at the Crossroads, she and Jade are going to stir it up 1v1 to finally settle things! Will Velvet be serving up L’s? Or will Jade prove she is not just a storm, but #ThatBitch in AEW?

The second Jade jumps into the ring, Velvet attacks! The bell rings, they brawl and Velvet uses her boxing background to fire off! The ref backs Velvet off and Jade BOOTS Velvet right down! Jade clutches her arm but still stalks some trash. Velvet comes back to dropkick Jade into a corner! Jade kicks low and hard, then brings Velvet up to scoop. Velvet slips out to HOOK KICK! Jade staggers around, Velvet waits, and then baits Jade in to dump Jade out! Fans fire up as Velvet builds speed and DIVES! Direct hit and Jade hits railing! Fans are thunderous with Velvet as she stalks Jade. Velvet CLUBS Jade, whips her but Jade reverses to send Velvet into railing!

Jade scoops Velvet to taunt her friends, and then FALL AWAY SLAMS Velvet into the crowd of wrestlers! KiLynn King, Tesha Price and others are the collateral from that one! Jade goes into the ring, the others help Velvet up but she drags herself to ringside. Velvet is in at 5 of 10, and Jade smirks as she counts her abs. Jade ROCKS Velvet, hauls her up the ropes, and suplexes Velvet to hold her up for a SLAM! Jade kips up and she soaks up the heat as AEW goes picture in picture.

Jade stomps Velvet in a corner, stomps harder, and digs her boot in deep! Jade lets off as the ref counts, but Velvet fires off hands! Jade chokes Velvet into a buckle! The ref counts, Jade lets off and stomps Velvet again. Jade whips Velvet corner to corner so hard, Velvet goes through the gap and ends up on the apron! Jade drags Velvet back in, to ROPE GUILLOTINE! Jade drags Velvet over, turns her over and soaks up the heat as she drags Velvet back up. Jade talks trash but Velvet pie faces her! Jade pie faces back, then waistlocks to GERMAN SUPLEX! Velvet lands on her feet! Velvet swings on Jade but into a BLUE THUNDER BOMB! Cover, TWO!! Velvet survives, Jade grows annoyed, and AEW goes to break.

AEW returns, Velvet SCREW HIGH KICKS Jade hard! Jade is in a corner, she dodges but then Velvet dodges and Jade POSTS herself! Fans rally with “Stir It Up!” as Jade and Velvet rise. Velvet LARIATS but Jade stays up! Velvet LARIATS again, Jade wobbles! Velvet dodges Jade to LEAPING LARIAT and bring Jade down! Fans are thunderous as Velvet runs and wheelbarrows, to BULLDOG! Velvet says, “I’M That Bitch!” Velvet stirs it up, has a taste, and STANDING MOONSAULTS! Cover, TWO!! Velvet drags Jade to a drop zone, goes up top and MOONSAULTS but FLOPS as Jade moves! Jade drags Velvet into the chicken wings, JADED SLAM!! Cover, Jade wins!

Winner: Jade Cargill, by pinfall

Velvet miscalculates, and Jade gets another win off her! Will Jade drag Velvet out of the top five to head for the title in her own right?

 

Backstage interview with Britt Baker and Rebel.

The Doctor has been pulling double duty on Dark and Elevation, and she has “breaking news” regarding the AEW Rankings! Britt “respects” the system, and is now #3 at her 7-1 record for 2021. Anyone below her, irrelevant. But Red Velvet just lost by Jade Cargill, so she’s 5-1. Britt has two more wins than Velvet, so logic says she is now #2. And she promises she’ll work her way up the ranking so that she will be on Elevation this Monday. Then the people will get what we deserve: The Role Model as AEW Women’s’ World Champion, and not Hikaru Shida. Signed yours truly, Britt Baker, DMD.

 

Anthony Ogogo w/ The Factory VS Cole Karter!

The 2021 Olympic Middleweight Boxing Bronze Medalist for Team Great Britain is now here, QT Marshall, Nick Comoroto and Aaron Solow in his corner! Will #TheGovenah lay down the law for The Thoroughbred?

Ogogo gets in Karter’s face, then the bell rings and the two circle. They tie up, are in a deadlock for a moment, and Ogogo puts Karter in a corner. Ogogo lets off, shoves Karter, but Karter comes back to get a waistlock. Ogogo pries free to switch, but Karter pries free to arm-drag! Ogogo BODY SHOTS hard! That’s a TECHNICAL KNOCKOUT!

Winner: Anthony Ogogo, by referee decision

The crown jewel of QT’s Factory hits hard and fast, and makes his money even faster! Will Ogogo go for gold, while also going for the jugular?

 

Miro speaks.

“Here I am. They told me to show up again today.” But Kip Sabian and Penelope Ford have been avoiding him. He wants to smooth things over, but Kip knows Miro hates wasting time. So Miro is moving on, with or without him, to become champion! IF you work for this company and have gold, you better pull a Kip and disappear before The Best Man finds you, too!

 

Dax Harwood w/ Cash Wheeler VS Chris Jericho w/ Sammy Guevara, Special Enforce Mike Tyson!

The Pinnacle attacked the Inner Circle, the Inner Circle hit back, and we’re heading for BLOOD & GUTS! But before that, FTR wants to make sure Y2J understands who is who, and why he should #FearTheRevelation! But will Jericho make sure Dax is never, ever, EEEEEEVER the same… agayn?

Tully makes his entrance with FTR but he has to remember that other than Cash and the Spanish God, no other members of either faction is allowed ringside for this! The ref tells Tully to scram! Tully reluctantly steps out of the ring and up the ramp as the bell rings. Jericho and Dax stare down, circle and fire off fists! Jericho backs Dax down, rocks him and whips him, then CLOBBERS him! Dax flounders up and Jericho DECKS him! Dax bails out, regroups with Cash, and Jericho gets a CHAIR! Jericho brings that chair around but Tyson intercepts. This is not a disqualification match! Dax CLOBBERS Jericho! And bumps Jericho off the apron!

Dax CHOPS Jericho, then grabs Floyd the Baseball Bat, but Tyson takes the bat from him, too! Jericho ROCKS Dax, and whips him into railing! Jericho takes railing apart, drags Dax over and bumps him into a piece! Dax tears his way through the crowd, Jericho is after him and it’s a hockey scrum! Jericho chases Dax back to ringside, Sammy keeps Cash back, and the hands keep flying! Dax kicks Jericho, bumps him off buckles, then throws haymakers and stomps and CHOPS! Dax whips Jericho to ropes and CLOBBERS him with an elbow! Dax chokes Jericho on the ropes! The ref counts, Dax lets off, and Jericho CHOPS back! And CHOPS again! And again!

Jericho has Dax in a corner for point-blank clotheslines! Jericho whips, Dax bounces off buckles and Jericho CLOBBERS him again! Dax bails out, has the medics check his stitches, and Jericho storms over. Dax grabs Justin Roberts’ mic to BOP Jericho! Dax whips Jericho into the stage wall! Jericho grabs the timekeeper’s pen to JAB the stitches!! Jericho scoop SLAMS Dax to the floor, then confiscates a camera! Jericho gets good footage of Dax, and they both flip each other off! Jericho BOOTS Dax, gives the camera back and ROCKS Dax! Jericho puts Dax in the ring, stomps him around, then digs his knee into Dax’s head!

The ref counts, Jericho lets off, and whips. Dax turns Jericho around to POST him! Jericho falls to the floor, Dax gets him up and whips him into railing! Tyson is there to make sure Dax does this fair, and AEW goes picture in picture.

Dax stalks Jericho, but has to refresh the count first. Dax waits on Jericho, and he WRECKS him with a baseball slide dropkick! Dax smirks, goes out to fetch Jericho but Tyson gets in his face. Jericho kicks Dax low and put him back in! Dax CLUBS Jericho and knees him down on the return! The ref counts, Dax lets off, and Dax paces around. Dax sits Jericho up, claws his face, but stops as the ref reprimands. Dax CLUBS Jericho at ropes, chokes him, and claws his face! The ref counts, Dax lets off, and then snapmares Jericho to KICK him! Dax gets Jericho up, hoists him to the top rope, and climbs up to go after him. Jericho throws body shots then headbutts Dax down!

Jericho adjusts, Dax stands, Jericho CROSSBODIES! Cover, TWO!! Dax is right up to CLOBBER Jericho! Dax paces around Jericho, drags him up by his hair, and AEW returns to single picture as he whips. Jericho blocks, Dax CHOPS, so Jericho CHOPS! It’s a CHOP fight! Jericho gets the edge, whips but Dax reverses, only for Jericho to run him over! Jericho runs to run Dax over with a shoulder! Fans fire up as Jericho runs but Dax puts him on the apron. Jericho goes up top fast, for FLYING AX HANDLES! Fans are fired up as Jericho runs to BULLDOG Dax down! And LIONSAULT! Cover, TWO!! Cash is creeping so Tyson and the ref tell him to back off!

Jericho gets up, KICKS Dax in the side, then KICKS him again! Jericho runs but Dax ROCKS him! Jericho and Dax throw forearms back and forth, Dax gets the edge now, and he ROCKS Jericho!

Winner: Chris Jericho, by pinfall

The first shot has been fired, and the Demo God stands tall with his faction! Tyson joins Jericho in the ring to dare Pinnacle to do something! Jericho gets a mic to say, “As you pieces of trash leave, I want to make this official!” Iron Mike is an honorary member of the Inner Circle! Tyson is honored, will he stick by Jericho’s side through even Blood & Guts?

 

Backstage interview with The Young Bucks, and the rest of the Biz Cliz!

Matt & Nick, Kenny, Callis and the Good Brothers were just about to leave but Alex Marvez wants to talk with them. Clearly, these guys have changed the wrestling world again. Does AEW want a scoop? Well here’s the scoop! Get out of the way, Marvez! Callis has the mic to say, “If the wrestling world has learned one thing about all of us, it’s this: Just when you think you’ve seen it all, you haven’t seen anything.” When the Bucks came back into the fold as the greatest tag team of the last 2000 YEARS, they came back to the family. This isn’t the end of the story, this is just the beginning!

Omega says they’re listening to “the interwebs, the radios, the podcasts, the people on the telly,” they all want to know why he and the Bucks have changed. They haven’t changed! They just got sick and tired of being what we want them to be. They’re sick of you non-sport numb-nuts wanting them to be just like you! They’re not like you! They’re them! That’s where you find success! And that’s why wherever they go, the gold follows. Matt says that this is fine, this is great, but this isn’t all fun and games. Didn’t you see the match they had? Matches of the year just pour out of Matt’s ear! The Bucks are BACK, and the AEW Tag Division has been put on notice!

So whether it’s SCU, Jurassic Express, Best Friends, Butcher & Blade or whatever they go by, you’ve all got BTE Triggers with your damn names on them! Callis says this is what it is! You wanted the old Omega? You got him! You wanted the old Bucks? BAH GAWD, you got them, too! So if you learn one thing, learn this: prepare to be surprised again! The Bucks fake out the cameraman with superkicks, but then CALLIS Superkicks!! NERD! Will all of AEW soon belong to the Biz Cliz?

 

Thunder Rosa speaks.

“As you have seen, I’m not only taking over the AEW Women’s Division, I’m taking over the world.” She doesn’t just want the AEW Women’s World Championship, she wants the NWA Women’s World Championship! Rosa is back on top, and whoever wins between Hikaru Shida and Tay Conti, she’ll go after you and that title. And Serena Deeb, she’s been missed. She has something that belongs to Rosa, too. Rosa is waiting for everyone because she is going to take over everything!

 

Kris Statlander w/ Best Friends VS Amber Nova!

The Galaxy’s Greatest Alien is officially back in action, even after helping Orange Cassidy, Chuck Taylor & #JustTrent in Arcade Anarchy. Will she continue to be out of this world as she takes on Ms. Super Nova?

The bell rings and Kris wants to boop. She boops the ref! Kris and Nova tie up, go around, and Kris puts Nova in a corner. Nova goes up the ropes but Kris lets her go and Nova falls! Nova gets up in a huff, runs but Kris dodges to arm-drag her around! Kris then boops Nova! Fans fire up for the booping as Kriss blocks the heel kick! Kris spins Nova to ROCK her! Kris whips, scoops and POWERSLAMS! Fans fire up as Kris brings Nova back up. Nova hits back, kicks low, and pie faces her. “You’re not an alien!” Kris choke grips then military presses Nova to DROP her! Kris drags Nova into the handstand LEG DROP, and FLIPPING SENTON!

Kris gives a thumbs up and Cassidy returns it. Nova gets up, Kris runs corner to corner at her, and uppercuts! Kris goes side to side to KNEE Nova down! Nova flounders back up, Kris ROUNDHOUSES her back down! Kris gets Nova up, gut wrenches, tucks her in, and hits the BIG BANG THEORY!! Cover, Kris wins!

Winner: Kris Statlander, by pinfall

The Galaxy’s Greatest Alien is 100% and is definitely back! Group hug! But will Kris skyrocket into the top five to be back where she left off?

 

Backstage interview with Team Taz.

They made an offer to Christian Cage last week to join them, but have they heard back? It’s been just a week, but no they haven’t. Ricky Starks brings up that they waited months on Powerhouse Will Hobbs, no offense to him. But why waiting a week on Christian!? They shouldn’t even wait an hour! It doesn’t matter who he is! Taz tells Starks to calm down, it is annoying. But it is best for Team Taz, if they are to lock Christian in, to have Starks hang backstage since he’s getting a little heated. Brian Cage agrees, because Starks has been a little indifferent.

Taz doesn’t want to do this on camera, but maybe Brian should hang back, too. Let Taz, Hook and Hobbs handle this. Tonight, they will convince Christian to join up! But will that really be the case?

 

AEW returns and Tony Schiavone is in the ring!

There’s a lot to talk about, and he welcomes the one and only Captain Charisma! Christian Cage is back, and he asked for this time to say this is the first time these two have had a chance to do this! What a thrill! Tony Khan gave him an open challenge contract and he’s here to use it. He wants to #OutworkEveryone, so- But then Taz interrupts! It’s been a full week, and Taz doesn’t like that he didn’t get so much as a return text message after the amazing opportunity he offered! Christian didn’t even ACKNOWLEDGE Taz’s request. Is he in or out!? Christian says he was going to do this later on in private like a professional but he’s out here so let’s do this now.

Christian says Taz just admitted himself earlier, Team Taz is a bit of a dumpster fire right now. The thing is, Christian didn’t come here to help Taz fix his problems, but to win championships! Christian will give his answer, and it’s good that Taz is standing on those steps so they can be face-to-face. Christian’s answer… is NO! Oh, well here’s the deal, SHITBAG! As far as Taz’s height, standing on his wallet would make him 10 feet taller! Oh that bingo hall money? YEAH that bingo hall money! And AEW money, too! But Christian just made the biggest mistake ever! Taz never liked Christian or his stupid friend who carried his ass, and then he has the audacity to wear Taz’s colors out here!

Hobbs has Taz calm down, and then he goes to the ring. Is Hobbs answering the open challenge?! Hobbs swings on Christian but Christian dodges to fire off haymakers! Hobbs KNEES low, talks trash, then gets Christian up to scoop, but Christian slips out to hook the arms! Speaking off hook, Hook distracts Christian on the apron! Christian swipes at him, Hook gets away, and Christian turns around into Hobb’s BODY TACKLE! Hobbs looms over Christian, Hook regroups with his dad, and fans chant, “Team Taz Sucks!” as Hobbs throws Christian into railing! Hobbs hauls Christian up to RAM him into railing again! Christian flounders, Hobbs smirks as he looms over him, then talks more trash.

Hobbs hauls Christian back up to POP-UP FLAPJACK Christian to the floor! Christian crawls away but Taz and Hook are at the ramp. Hobbs snarls as he stalks Christian to the steel steps. Hobbs hauls Cage up to SMACK him off the steel! And then stand on his head against the steps! Hobbs lets off, and leaves Christian down on the ground in a heap! No open challenge match tonight, but will Christian demand he get payback on the Powerhouse?

 

AEW has big plans for next week!

With Thunder Rosa and Britt Baker both clamoring for their chance, the #1 Contender gets hers! Tay Conti takes on her friendly rival and recent tag partner, Hikaru Shida, for the AEW Women’s World Championship! Tay speaks, saying that consistent hard work leads to success, and that now is her time. Shida says she wants to wrestle in sold out arenas as champion. Now it’s time to fight! Who comes out of this with the gold around their waists?

And after what we just saw, Hobbs and Christian WILL have a match next week! Will Christian be able to outwork a pure, unadulterated powerhouse? And while Hangman is THE #1 contender in the Men’s Singles Division, Ricky Starks is nipping at his heels! Will Absolute push the Cowboy out of the way on the path to the Best Bout Machine? Then, as Best Friends being their revenge tour on Death Triangle, #JustTrent takes on Penta El Zero Miedo 1v1! Will this be the first in the series for Best Friends to get back at their old foes?

 

AEW TNT Championship Falls County Anywhere: Darby Allin VS Matt Hardy!

The Face of the Network may be Relentless, but if Big Money Matt is to be trusted, there won’t be interference from the Hardy Family Office. Will Darby really only have to worry about Hardy and not Butcher, Blade, Bunny and/or Private Party? Or is the truth rarely the truth with Hardy these days?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see if Big Money cashes in big time in the main event!

Hardy gets a chair right at the bell, and Darby is wary. Darby dodges the chair shot, fires off haymakers, then runs, but springboards into a SMACK! Darby writhes, Hardy gets the chair up to JAM him in the stomach! Hardy looms over Darby, lines up his shot and SMACKS him again! Darby writhes out of the ring, flounders around, and we see Ethan Page & Scorpio Sky watching from Darby’s usual perch. All Ego & The Face of the Revolution still feel snubbed so they want to see Darby get destroyed for it. Hardy runs but Darby avoids another chair shot to fire off forearms! Hardy JAMS Darby again, SMACKS him another time, and then puts the chair aside put dig hands into Darby’s face!

Hardy DECKS Darby, drags him up and brings him around to smear into the apron! Hardy dribbles Darby’s face off the apron, puts him in and then gets the chair again. Fans rally for Darby as Hardy paces. Hardy takes a seat to watch Darby crawl as fans chant, “Hardy Sucks!” Darby sits up but Hardy ROCKS him! And DECKS him! Hardy gets the chair again, paces around like a shark with blood in the water, and that’s literal because Darby’s back is cut up. Hardy JAMS Darby with the chair into the waist! Hardy gets Darby up but Darby ROCKS Hardy with big palm strikes! Darby fires off forearms, but Hardy kicks low! NECKBREAKER! Cover, TWO!

Hardy seethes as he gets the chair again. Hardy sits the chair up again, brings Darby over and BOUNCES Darby’s head off the seat! Fans boo, Hardy drags Darby back up but Darby is a rag doll! Hardy gets the chair, stalks Darby as the ref checks on him, and Hardy SMACKS Darby again! Fans boo but Hardy soaks up the heat while Darby writhes on the mat. Hardy drags Darby back over to the chair, puts Darby through the chair, and then brings Darby up! FULL METAL- NO! Darby fights free and uses the chair to RAM Hardy! And SMACK him with it! Darby fires off more SMACKS and fans want “One More Time!” Darby obliges and SMACKS again!

But here come Butcher, Blade & Bunny! That promise was just lip service! Butcher CHUCKS a trash can at Darby’s head!! Direct hit and Darby goes down! Private Party also join in, and Hardy has the HFO mug Darby! Quen & Kassidy stomp Darby, Butcher & Blade bring steel steps over! The steps are set up near a corner of the ringside area, but the Dark Order make the save! They go after the HFO, and IT’S STIIIIING! The Icon has his bat, he TOSSES Kassidy, JAMS Quen, and then brings Kassidy up to TOSS him at Quen! Sting gets in, gets the trash can and SMACKS Kassidy! Then Sting runs to DOUBLE CLOTHESLINE Private Party out of the ring!

Hardy and Darby ended up by the timekeeper’s area and fans chant “This is Awesome!” as AEW goes picture in picture!

Darby throws hands on Hardy against the stage wall! Sting keeps on Private Party while all of Dark Order brawls with Butcher & Blade! Darby drags Hardy up, brings him around and bumps him off the apron. Darby gets the trash can, brings it out and SMACKS Hardy! And SMACKS him again! Hardy flounders, Darby brings him over, and goes to suplex. Hardy counters to GOURD BUSTER Darby onto the trash can! Uno & Stu RAM Butcher into stage wall, Sting SMACKS Kassidy off steel steps. Hardy covers, TWO! Darby is still in this, but Hardy chokes him on the timekeeper’s table! Hardy rains down rights while his HFO get mugged over and over.

Hardy backs off, Sting SMACKS Quen off steps. Darby gets up, Hardy ROCKS him again, and Hardy gets the trash can. Darby fights back with haymakers! Darby uses the crushed can to RAM Hardy down! Darby fires up while his allies keep HFO at bay. Darby brings Hardy around, CHOPS him against the stage wall, and Sting throws Private Party into each other. Hardy ROCKS Darby and whips him into the stage wall! Hardy staggers around, brings Darby back up, but Darby RAMS him into the stage! AEW returns to single picture as Darby whips but Hardy reverses. Darby leaps over steel steps but COLLIDES with railing! Fans lose their minds as Hardy pursues.

Sting and Private Party are in the ring again while Hardy covers Darby, TWO! Ethan Page & Scorpio Sky have appeared ringside! They creep up on Sting, but LANCE ARCHER is there! The Murderhawk Monster makes sure they stay back, and Sting gets Private Party in double dragon sleepers, but then he sees Archer getting in the ring?! Is Archer just staking a claim to the prey?! But then Archer drags Kassidy up to the top rope, inverted crucifix for the BLACKOUT BOMB!! Hardy bowls Darby through the crowd of wrestlers while Archer goes out to get Quen and Kassidy! Hardy chases Darby up the ramp, has a chair, but sees what happened to his HFO!

Darby gets the chair from him to JAM him! And tackle him for a rain of fists! Sting tosses Darby the bat! Almost a passing of the torch as Darby aims at Hardy. Hardy begs for mercy but he won’t get any, so Hardy LOW BLOWS first!! Darby drops the bat as Hardy gets two balls! Hardy puts Darby through another chair! FULL METAL TWIST OF FATE!!! Hardy crawls to cover Darby on the stage, TWO!?!?! Darby still lives and that shocks Hardy! Fans are thunderous, Hardy drags Darby up and throws him down the tunnel! They go to gorilla now as Hardy elbows away on Darby. Hardy BOWLS Darby into the monitors!

Hardy gets a ladder! Hardy sets it up near a table and he drags Darby over. Hardy puts Darby on the table, rains down rights and lefts, then climbs the ladder. Hardy powers up, and SUPER LEG DROPS through the table!! Cover in the wreckage, TWO!??!?! How did Darby survive!?! Hardy is furious and fans are thunderous as ever! Hardy drags Darby from the wreckage, back out the other tunnel to the stage. Hardy throws Darby and fans chant, “Hardy Sucks!” Darby crawls, Hardy points to where Sting’s bat ended up, and then drags Darby up. Hardy CLUBS away on Darby’s back, hauls him up, and Canadian racks, but Darby slips free to LOW BLOW! With interest!

Darby flounders but gets Sting’s bat back! Darby brings the bat to where Hardy is on the stage, and Hardy is by commentary. Darby rushes in to SLUG Hardy in the stomach, then the back, then JAM him in the head! Then he CRACKS Hardy in the ribs while he’s down! Darby SMACKS all the monitors off the commentary table! Fans fire up with his rage as Darby chokes Hardy! Darby drags Hardy onto the announce desk and then JAMS Hardy in the head! Darby won’t end it here, he goes up to the girders!! SUPER COFFIN DROP!!! Cover, Darby wins!!

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

Hardy said he’d show us how extreme he can still be, but Darby showed us what “extreme” really means! The Face of the Network is STILL Relentless, but who’s next to roll the dice with him?


My Thoughts:

What a great episode! A lot of great progress in the stories, great action in the matches, it’s just great. The tag titles opening has become the natural move for AEW, and it was a great match with the Bucks showing us their new Heel personas that really do poke fun at everything they’ve been before this point. Their promo before the match to actually open the episode was also good to put that in perspective, and we got a good group promo with them and this new form of the Elite/Bullet Club. Callis giving the superkick was a nice little twist, I wonder if another group of five steps up to take these guys on in maybe not Blood & Guts but a Stadium Stampede sequel.

If it were anyone, it should be Hangman and the main four of Dark Order, i.e. Uno, Stu, Reynolds & Silver. Hangman is the #1 contender, is going to have an absolutely awesome match with Ricky Starks next week, and will certainly circle back to facing Omega again. It was good story that he ignored the questions about the new Elite during the interview, because he’ll have to face them eventually, but he can’t deal with that right now so he won’t. Silver is almost back from his bad arm, he and Reynolds can have some great matches with the Good Brothers. The Bucks are going to have great matches with any team they face, I hope they work from #5 to #1 in a countdown.

If SCU maintains their #1 rank, they can really build the “titles or bust” story for Daniels & Kazarian until they have just the most amazing match AEW has seen yet, and the crowd either explodes because SCU wins the titles, or still explodes because SCU loses their last match together. It’s how things have to go, it just has to. Velvet VS Cargill was great, and naturally Cargill won to maintain her strength. She needs to be getting more matches in, though. She needs to catch up to that top five to really make her feel like she is this strong. Speaking of, I like that Britt is giving us the ranking updates “in real time” to add onto her story of making AEW accountable for saying wins and losses matter.

Rosa had a really good promo to restate her mission to get both women’s titles, and Shida VS Tay happening next week is awesome! It’s been a point of contention that AEW hasn’t put as much into their Women’s Division but now they are and that’s great. I don’t think Tay takes the title off Shida, because there’s also Double or Nothing 2021 to consider. Shida could have a big defense as the one year anniversary to getting the title off Nyla Rose, so maybe that is where Britt or Rosa gets their shot and their own big PPV title win. And after that, things freshen up as Britt or Rosa takes on the other contenders, from Big Swole to Red Velvet to Kris Statlander, who also got back on track with her return win.

Team Taz ups the ante with Christian Cage as the open challenge never really happens. I would still harp on Christian not really being a workhorse but he did take a lot of bumps from Hobbs here so that was a good amount of work. Christian VS Hobbs will be very good, and I did like that we got more dysfunction in the team with Starks and Brian Cage. That FTW Championship match is still happening, I am sure of it. Miro’s ultimatum to Kip and all the title holders was great. I’m pretty sure Kip lets Miro do things his own way, and Miro goes right for the TNT title.

And of course, that TNT Championship Falls Count Anywhere was AMAZING. Naturally, the HFO did NOT stay out of this, they had great brawling with the Dark Order, and it’s great for Darby to get the win. Darby can probably keep winning until Double or Nothing, maybe against Miro, maybe against either Ethan Page or Scorpio Sky since they’re still hanging around, or maybe even Archer since he got in on things. The TNT Championship definitely is where the real workhorses wrestle, and whoever wins this title could probably go against Christian Cage at some point because of his #OutworkEveryone catchphrase.

My Score: 9.4/10

“Every week, every show, every match, every opponent, The Hollywood Hunk proves he is a dominant force in AEW.” Looking at the numbers alone, Nemeth wins nearly half the time. Whether it’s Nemeth and Reynolds with Negative One, Tay Conti, whoever, Nemeth isn’t afraid of the cronies. Reynolds is technically sound, good looking, and a winner. But he is no hunk.

“Tonight, State Farm presents: The Hollywood Hunk, Ryan Nemeth VS The Handsome Devil, Alex Reynolds.” Negative One says Nemeth was his babysitter. He sat on Negative One? Negative One is fired up, and wants to attack! Relax, Nemeth isn’t in the camera. Save it for the ring. Reynolds says that he isn’t taking this lightly. He and John Silver talked with the State Farm Superfan, Aaron, and came up with some moves to debut tonight. Reynolds has tricks up his sleeves.

My Thoughts:

A good Dark, mostly because it was an hour and 35 minutes, but it was still a lot of matches crammed into that time. AEW is probably going to continue to be unpredictable with episode lengths and match totals so I don’t know if I can maintain doing Dark and Elevation when I’m also covering WWE’s Raw and NXT on these same days. I feel like the SCU’s matches need to be Elevation by default because of their self-challenge of “next time we lose, we break up” angle. That said, it’s also a giveaway that these two aren’t losing before getting a title opportunity, so maybe that’s why they’re still being put on Dark.

I also feel like Velvet should be on Elevation if she and Jade are going to be getting after each other. They’re supposed to be the rising stars but they weren’t on the show that’s about rising stars in exchange for… Well, Elevation actually had a lot of solid matches worthy of it, but they could’ve still put this one there since they love going bigger. Team Taz had a good story, too, where now Starks is going past being chippy with Cage to being overly helpful. This has to implode at some point, and they fight for the FTW Championship on at least Dynamite.

I do like that Britt had another match tonight, because she is determined to get wins to play by the AEW rules. I wouldn’t be surprised if she had another double header next week between Elevation and Dark to try and stuff the win-loss record and rankings. Double or Nothing 2021 is still six weeks away, so if AEW had the contenders all fight each other at some point in not a tournament but more a best-of series, that’d be really good to have Britt try and jump over Big Swole and Tay Conti to go after Shida. Also, AEW really just let Swole’s promo of being determined to get her shot drop like a lead balloon. Swole needs to get hungry again and get in all the other contenders’ faces as she takes over the contender race.

The Dark Order tying in the State Farm deal and the superfan Zoom call they apparently had was really nice. They’re definitely Faces doing things like that, and of course Reynolds uses the moves (and their names) suggested by the superfan. WWE gets product tie-ins and sponsorship deals, so AEW can have them, too! Either way, I think Reynolds was going to win because The Dark Order has been on fire. One of these days, one of their tag combinations is going to get at the tag titles, and that is going to be a lot of fun.

My Score: 8.2/10
