Winners: Jurassic Express, by pinfall
A fast and furious Triple Threat Tag, but the one team that stays on track is Jurassic Express! Will a boy and his dinosaur be on their way to a tag title opportunity?
A good Dark, but I’m not sure AEW understands “less is more.” The matches were all fairly quick, and there was no Waiting Room this week, so this episode came in at just over 2 hours and 15 minutes. But at the same time, the majority of these matches still felt the same as always. I will say the Triple Threat Tag to end was really good, very fast paced, though obviously Janela falling onto a camera man was a bit rough. Jurassic Express wins to stay in the top 5, as do Uno & Stu earlier tonight. Both those teams should get shots at the tag titles at some point.
It was great to see Shanna back, given all the time missed from Europe’s lockdowns and her having to quarantine outside of the States before returning. Are Lindsay Snow and Lady Frost not a tag team? They should be given similar names. And they should get into a tag program with Ivelisse & Diamante over the tag cup medals. I also like the developments with Scorpio and Spears. I almost thought Scorpio was turning and joining Spears but maybe this is just Scorpio getting a mean streak for their inevitable grudge match. Anthony Bowens needs to work on that slingblade DDT move, I feel like he almost legit hurt Wayward. But The Acclaimed is already a really good team, and certainly a strong one on Dark.
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!

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?

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.

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 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!

AEW returns with a backstage interview with Chris Jericho.

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

Bunny survives and shocks everyone, especially Tay!
Bunny crawls to the apron, Tay drags her back up, but Bunny hotshots her! Tay staggers away onto ropes, Bunny sucker punches Shida! Bunny gets Shida’s kendo stick but all hell breaks loose between Dark Order and HFO! The ref is busy with that, just as Bunny wanted, and she SMACKS Tay with the kendo stick! Is Allie a bunny or a weasel!? Bunny then climbs up, but Shida snatches the stick away! Tay ROCKS Bunny, climbs up to get her, and hits a SUPERPLEX! Roll through, hammerlock, DD-TAY!! Cover, Tay wins!!
Winner: Tay Conti, by pinfall
The champion helps her #1 contender, because it’s more about respect than anything! Will these friendly rivals become friendly opponents soon enough?
AEW sets up next week’s big episode of Dynamite!
After calling Darby out on Elevation and Dark, then being part of the attack on him tonight, Matt Hardy gets his shot at the TNT Championship, in a Falls Count Anywhere match! Will Big Money Matt strike gold in Daily’s Place? Then, as we learned earlier tonight, the Young Bucks will defend the AEW Tag Team Championships against Death Triangle’s PAC & Rey Fenix! The Bastard & Firebird were put on notice by Best Friends, but will the titles be part of the mix? And now that he is firmly part of QT’s cell, Anthony Ogogo finally has his AEW in-ring debut! Is Ogogo gonna knock out whoever is put in his path?
And speaking of “finally,” Red Velvet and Jade Cargill go 1v1 so settle the score! Jade won in the mixed tag, but will she pull off sweet victory all on her own? Or will Velvet get her sweet revenge? In fact…
Red Velvet speaks.
“Jade, I finally figured out what your deal is with me. Why you keep looking for me.” It’s because Jade knows that on the night she beat Velvet on national television, Jade knew then and there that she barely got the job done! Jade calls herself #ThatBitch? Then be #ThatBitchWhoGetsTheJobDone!
ONE MORE big match has been made for next week!
After the news of Blood & Guts finally happening, and after Mike Tyson stood alongside the Inner Circle, there’s a huge sampler to whet our appetites! Mike Tyson will be special guest enforcer as Chris Jericho with just Sammy Guevara ringside takes on Dax Hardwood with just Cash Wheeler by his side! That’s right, the rest of the Inner Circle and Pinnacle will be BANNED from ringside during this match to keep this as far as possible! Will Jericho and Tyson rewrite the mistakes of the past together?
Six Man Tag: Kenny Omega & The Good Brothers VS Jon Moxley & The Young Bucks!
Did anyone ever imagine the Elite ending up like this? Will there be any going back from this? Or have the bonds between the Best Bout Machine and the Jackson brothers been severed forever?

Matt storms over, Callis backs off, and Omega suddenly wants in. Anderson tags Omega, Omega tries to talk with Matt about this, and Callis scurries to commentary.

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

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

Winners: Bear Country, by pinfall
Boulder & Bronson are rolling towards their showdown with Jurassic Express! But who will survive when these forces of nature collide on Dynamite?
At an hour and 16, this was a manageable episode of Dark, with a lot of short matches that were still good matches. I do like that we’re getting story progress here, such as with the new group of Nemeth, JD and Bononi, and another great new music video from Max Caster. I also like that Starks and Cage were still being passive aggressive with each other, that is good story for Team Taz there. We got good tune-ups for Jurassic Express and Bear Country going into their match on Dynamite, but I would feel like Jurassic Express wins because they’ve been the hot hand for some time.
