Backstage interview with The Inner Circle.
Alex Marvez congratulates MJF, the New York Times has honored his by declaring his part in “Le Dinner Debonair” the Best Performance of 2020. Jericho wants to point out that not only did he create that, he was the costar. Yes, a great job, Christopher. But MJF says he’s back-to-back Dynamite Diamond Ring bearer and now the Best Performance of 2020. New York Times forgot one thing: he couldn’t have done it without CJ. And how dare people online say MJF is so much better than Jericho! Jericho is a mentor, the #GOAT, and honestly, a best friend. MJF couldn’t have done it without any of these “sexy hooligans.” Jericho congratulates MJF and MJF thanks him for it. Will they and all the Inner Circle have the best group performance in that titanic twelve man tag match?
AEW sees how the holidays are going at the Nightmare Family home.

The American Nightmare, the Prince of Pro-Wrestling, the Ace of AEW, and a big winner here tonight! But Team Taz has to ruin the fun by coming out. “It’s only the right thing to do right now, because congratulations are in order.” On behalf of the rest of the team, Taz congratulates Cody not for the match, but for being a daddy! “Oh~, he’s gonna be a daddy!” Ricky Starks says all this talk about being daddies, where were the congratulations for making Cody and “turtle boy” Darby Allin into Team Taz’s “sons?” Starks didn’t get a congrats, Cage didn’t get a congrats. But that’s just how it happens around here. But in regards to Darby, he will be minced meat at the hands of The Machine!
And Cody, here’s what’s happening now! Team Taz is going to put you on paternity leave! But wait! The crow! The snow! “It’s STIIIIING!” The Icon has his iconic bat, but Powerhouse Hobbs wants right after him! The rest of Team Taz has Hobbs reconsider, and they all retreat to the back. Darby and Sting stare down from all this far away, and then Sting gives a parting wink to Cody. Is Sting being a shadowy guardian angel for the young guns of AEW?
AEW returns with a backstage interview with Miro!
The Best Man made sure Orange Cassidy did not win the Dynamite Diamond Ring, and then he hospitalized three members of the AEW security staff! For that, management is fining him $75,000 total, 25K for each! What does he have to say for himself? What problem does he have with Orange Cassidy? “Well, he simply doesn’t care.” It’s all about numbers, likes, subscriptions, and yet Cassidy doesn’t care about them! Now Miro gets fined? Miro feels Cassidy owes him that money. But next week is the holidays! There will be a huge announcement then, but Miro promises to break the internet again as he returns to AEW Dark to take on Sonny Kiss. And then for Dynamite, it will be the WEDDING DATE ANNOUNCEMENT for Kip Sabian and Penelope Ford!
But what about the people he put in the hospital?! It’s almost Christmas! “BAH HUMBUG!” It’s Miro’s birthday. Will Miro be made to feel remorse for what he’s done?
Eddie Kingston goes to the ring!
And the Mad King already has a mic to say, “Alright, boo, cheer my name, do whatever you want to do. Because at the end of the day, I don’t care about any of you!” That includes the wrestlers at ringside, the people at home, and the cameraman. But Kingston is here to address his enemies! “Ladies and gentlemen, I have a lot of enemies.” First, “the man upstairs,” because haha, Kingston’s still alive! Second, the guy he and The Fam took out! The Bastard, Pac, got hurt! He’s gone home again and is never coming back again! His career is DONE! Go ahead, boo, you trained seals.
Third, that “big goofy bastard,” Lance Archer! But speaking of, here he comes! And the Murderhawk Monster is right on Kingston with furious fists! The Butcher and the Blade hurry out to go after him but he holds them off. Archer runs, Kingston clamps on, and then Blade dodges for Butcher to throw hands!

That neck isn’t keeping him out after all! And then Archer gets up and it’s a 4v3 beating! Bunny Allie can only watch as Kingston is thrown out and then thrown into barriers!

Then Pentagon goes to the apron to SUPERKICK Blade, and Fenix runs to FLY and TORNILLO them both down! Kingston ends up back in the ring but Archer choke grips! Pac BOOTS Kingston down and stomps away! But Archer says Kingston is HIS prey. Pac doesn’t care and he glares at Kingston. The Fam regroups and retreats while Pac and Archer argue this out. But enemies of one’s enemies are your friends, so will Archer and Pac have a loose alliance for the sake of crushing Kingston?
Dasha Fuentes interviews Dustin Rhodes.
Has he thought at all about the offer issued by The Dark Order? He has. “Seven was a bad idea years ago, and Seven was a bad idea last week.” Dustin makes it clear to Evil Uno that Uno said Dustin is the “third least important person in the Rhodes family,” but that is WRONG! Dustin told Uno like he told Number 10, the Dark Order will all fall, one by one by one! Next week, Uno is next! Holiday Bash, Dustin fixes to kick some ass!

Alex Marvez interviews Thunder Rosa backstage.
We’ve all seen her attack Britt Baker, but Rosa wants to address “The Face of the AEW Women’s Division” herself. “The Role Model, the Dentist,” Britt tells Rosa doesn’t belong in AEW. But Rosa has been wrestling all over the world while Britt stuck her big nose in that NWA Women’s World Championship match! It is Britt’s fault Rosa lost! So they want to ask Rosa why now she is beating Britt’s ass? Maybe because Rosa does belong! For Britt to have the BALLS to say otherwise, Rosa laughs!

But then Britt CLOBBERS Rosa from behind! “Oh, I thought my ‘big nose’ smelled an unwanted guest!” Britt says Rosa is not welcome here! And she puts Rosa in the Rings of Saturn!

But will the Bucks still have the gold come Christmas?
Dasha Fuentes interviews Top Flight.
Why did Darrius and Dante specifically save Griff from Jericho and MJF at the end of their 12 man tag match? They want us to focus on the two names just mentioned. Jericho, first ballot hall of famer. MJF, AEW’s hottest, youngest star. Er, well, that was until AEW signed Top Flight. True. Top Flight knows all about those two whereas Jericho and MJF didn’t know much about them. But now they do! In fact, maybe Top Flight hit them so hard they’ve already forgotten. This is Darius and Dante, the coldest tag team in the game! And to make sure they never forget, Top Flight challenges Jericho and MJF to a 2v2 tag match for Dynamite! Accept, “or run away like two little bitches.” Which will it be?
Big Swole & Serena Deeb VS Ivelisse & Diamante!

Swole headlocks, Diamante powers out and but Swole comes back to get around and shove Diamante. Swole back drops Diamante hard, then hurries to keep her from Ivelisse. Diamante hits back and throws Swole down by her hair! Dismante DECKS Deeb then goes after Swole. The ref is busy with Deeb, Swole gets put in the ropes and Ivelisse hits a hotshot to Diamante’s GERMAN SUPLEX! Cover, ONE!? Diamante drags Swole up, clubs her then tags Ivelisse in. They mug Swole while AEW goes picture in picture, and then hit a double suplex! Cover, TWO!
Ivelisse clubs Swole, drags her around into a chinlock and wraps on tight. Swole endures as fans rally up, and Swole fights up to fight out! Ivelisse CLUBS Swole, facelocks again, and hits a TWISTING DDT! Cover, TWO! Swole survives and Ivelisse is frustrated, but she drags Swole up to bump her off buckles. Ivelisse CHOPS Swole, tags Diamante and Diamante CHOPS Swole, too! Diamante fires off haymakers and stomps, then digs her boot in! The ref reprimands but Diamante drags Swole up with a cravat to snapmare and KICK! Cover, TWO! Diamante keeps Swole from Deeb with a headlock but Swole throws body shots. Diamante CLUBS Swole down then rains down fists as AEW goes to break!
AEW returns and Deeb is in! She rallies on the tag cup winners as she scoop slams Ivelisse then CLOBBERS Diamante! Deeb drop toeholds Ivelisse and gets the legs for a deathlock! Diamante runs in but Deep kicks her, to suplex Diamante while hitting the SNAP LOCK on Ivelisse! Fans fire up as Deeb has Diamante and throws uppercuts! Deeb whips, Diamante kicks but gets caught to a DRAGON SCREW! Ivelisse kicks Deeb and whips her, but Deeb slips out and Ivelisse only gets buckles!

Fans fire up more as Deeb fireman’s carries Ivelisse, for a GUT BUSTER! Deeb steps through to a FIGURE FOUR! Ivelisse endures and rolls to ropes, tag to Diamante!

Winners: Serena Deeb & Big Swole, by submission
The World Tag Cup winners can’t believe they lost to two singles wrestlers! But the Vicious Vixens rush out!? Nyla Rose CLOBBERS Deeb, and Ivelisse goes after Swole! Vickie Guerrero even gets some stomps in! This is 4v2 but here comes RED VELVET with a chair! She SMACKS Nyla, then chases off Ivelisse and Diamante! Have the Vicious Vixens only stirred up Velvet’s vicious side?
Best Friends speak backstage.
“Santana and Ortiz. Fellas, this will never be over between us.” But right now, there are more important things to attend to. Miro sabotaged Cassidy’s match! You ruined Cassidy’s life! But Miro is going to use the Holiday Bash to announce Kip’s and Penelope’s wedding date? Well the Best Friends are so excited, because they’ll be at the Holiday Bash! They’re festive as hell! Trent and Chuck can’t wait. Will Miro regret publicly announcing the coming public announcement?
AEW has big matches for the Holiday Bash!
Not only will there be the AEW World Tag Team Championship match, Young Bucks VS The Acclaimed, and the grudge match of Top Flight VS Jericho & MJF, but there will be a Six Man Tag! Jurassic Express will be in full as they take on The Dark Order’s Alan Angels, Preston Vance and even Colt Cabana! Will Jungle Boy, Marko Stunt and Luchasaurus keep on track towards their own tag title opportunity?
Plus, Hikaru Shida will be back in action, will she finally get to face her fears in the form of Abadon? And as Dustin Rhodes put forward, he is facing Evil Uno to check him off the list! Then, after the shocking return and the chaotic encounter, The Bastard, PAC, is back in action against The Butcher! Will Pac make sure Eddie Kingston understands what’s coming for The Fam?
FTR barges in and gets on commentary.
Cash Wheeler asks if anyone knows what’s happened to the AEW Tag Division. Is it an afterthought already? Because why are they highlighting a sideshow attraction when you have the “heart and soul” of the division right here?! Dax Harwood says he understands how television time ain’t cheap. But if FTR, the greatest tag team of a generation, the first-ever GRAND SLAM Tag Team Champions, Pro-Wrestling Illustrated’s NUMBER ONE team of 2020, is being pushed to the side for a fake-ass Tarzan and a grown-man in a dinosaur costume, that doesn’t sit right! This is how they feed their families! If you threaten that in any way, they will eliminate that threat! Jurassic Express, you are in the crosshairs of FTR! #FearTheRevelation!!
No Holds Barred: Kenny Omega w/ Don Callis VS Joey Janela w/ Sonny Kiss!
There is a lot of history to this match right here! First off, the Unsanctioned Match the Best Bout Machine and the Bad Boy had on AEW Dark! Second, Janela not being able to participate in the AEW World Title Eliminator Tournament! But now, The Cleaner must face Janela again in a No Disqualifications, ANYTHING GOES main event! Will Janela make up for both losses and missed opportunities?
AEW returns and we see the entrance of “The man who has held the AEW World title for 14 days. He is the only AEW wrestler to pin Jon Moxley. He helped draw AEW’s largest television rating of the year on last week’s Dynamite. He appeared on last week’s episode of Impact Wrestling, which by no coincidence, increased their audience by 33%. He is so talented, that he appeared last Saturday night in two countries, on two major shows which were available to watch all around the world, including but not limited to NOOORTH CAROLINA~! He is the All Elite Wrestling Woooooorld Champion… KENNY, OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOMEEEEEEEEGAAAAA!”
There are more Sweepettes! Omega makes his entrance, with Don Callis not far behind, and then pyro! But then Janela throws a trash can at Kenny’s head! Janela SMACKS Omega with the can and Callis says commentary is laughing but they’re up to the task of calling an Omega match so he’s taking over! The bell rings, Janela throws Omega out then builds speed, to DIVE! Direct hit and Omega hits railing! Schiavone tells Callis to kiss his ass about taking his headset. Janela brings out chairs! He sets one up, whips Omega into more railing, and then sets up more chairs. Fans fire up with Janela as he goes over, but Omega KOTARO KRUSHERS Janela onto one of the chairs!
Omega gets back in the ring and wants to hear the Terminator drums! Fans boo but some do clap along. Omega runs and wrecks Janela with a dropkick! Callis uses his mic to just call commentary on his own now, of course hyping up Omega. Janela sits in the other chair, Omega runs and FLIES! Direct hit through the chair! Callis says no one does it like Omega! Omega brings out cookie trays, drags Janela up but Janela flounders down. Omega has the cookie sheet and he SMACKS Janela! Callis also mocks JR’s “BAH GAWD!” as he calls Omega hitting “this disgusting hardcore wrestler” Janela again!
Omega tells Kiss he’ll get some, too, if he doesn’t back off! Omega takes a spare mic and gives his own play by play! “I’ll show you just how easy this is!” Janela isn’t feeling so good, is he? Get up! And listen tot his audio. SMACK with the sheet! How did that feel for Omega? “IT FELT GREAT!” Omega puts a trash can on top of a post, and tells the ref to hold the mic. Omega goes up, gets his can, and then FULL METAL MOONSAULTS onto Janela! Cover, TWO!! Janela survives and Omega is furious! “Get up, Joey! Get up! By your little piggy tails!” Omega CHOPS Janela right back down!
Omega isn’t done and he point blank KNEES Janela down again. “What’s the matter, huh!?” Omega SMACKS Janela with the sheet again! And then he brings the crushed can and he puts it on Janela’s back. Omega goes to the apron and springboard DOUBLE STOMPS the can into Janela’s back! Omega drags Janela up as Callis says it’s time to hit the pay window. Electric Chair, fold, but Janela POISON-RANAS! Fans fire up for Janela as Omega and Callis are finally speechless! Kiss hurries to get something for Janela! It’s a TABLE! Anything goes, after all! Kiss sets the table up for Janela and Janela finds some other things from under the ring.
Janela drags Omega up to punch away at the ramp! He punches Omega onto the table, then climbs up the corner! Janela FLYING LEG DROPS Omega through the table!! Fans lose their minds as Janela drags Omega from the wreckage! Janela puts Omega in, climbs back up and MOONSAULTS but flops! Omega fires himself up to V-TRIGGER Janela! Then he runs to V-TRIGGER again! Janela is stiff as a board but Omega Electric Chair lifts him, for ONE WINGED ANGEL!! Cover, Omega wins!
Winner: Kenny Omega, by pinfall
No respect, no mercy, and no title opportunities for Janela! Omega holds his title up high and Callis says “All the haters that we had to listen to since that godforsaken tournament have been silenced! No more unanswered questions for the world champion!” But then Pac and the Lucha Brothers walk out on stage! “Oi, oi, Kenny! Me and you, Kenny, we have some unfinished business. But you see, I’m not here tonight to be selfish. Oh, no.” Death Triangle is here to address injustice. Look here at Rey Fenix. Think back to October. Fenix was also in that contender’s tournament, but he never lost. So please explain how exactly Omega is the rightful champion?
Callis asks “Pock” if he suddenly got some executive promotion while he and Omega were making history? If not, here’s a little lesson in the business. “Wrestlers don’t tell the world champion what to do!” Well Don, that’s where you’re wrong. They talked with Tony Khan, and the match has already been made! Whether Omega likes it or not, he will defend his title against Fenix! Omega is furious at the “nobody” making matches for his title! But another eliminator tournament “what if” will finally be answered! Will Omega still be champion for the holidays?
A very good episode to set up the holiday hat trick AEW is about to pull off. Between tonight and Being The Elite, Hangman and Dark Order interacting is a lot of fun, but I am surprised they didn’t win. #HardyParty definitely has their own story developing now that Matt is inexplicably turning Heel, not really sure what that is about. Dustin has a pretty good promo to send a message to Evil Uno, and that match should be good. Cody had a really good match with Angelico but of course Cody wins. And of course Team Taz shows up to cut a promo on Cody and Darby, and of course Sting shows up to counter them. Still thinking we get a Six Man of Cody, Darby & Sting VS Hobbs, Starks and Cage at some point.
Wardlow could not make it for “family matters,” hopefully that isn’t too serious but well wishes just in case. Even so, the resulting 12 man rather than 14 man was still a great match, and perhaps flowed just a bit better since it was three different tag teams on the Face side, with no odd man out in Brandon Cutler. Cassidy being on commentary not saying anything was a great touch, too. Of course the Inner Circle wins, but I like that Top Flight is stepping up to face MJF and Jericho. There could easily be a moment of dissention from MJF because of his ever growing ego, but I don’t think anything happens to turn things around from the “ultimatum” and the group’s decision to stay together.
I’m torn on how The Acclaimed VS SCU went down. Kaz giving back his own rap, burying Caster’s gimmick, was not how I would’ve liked that to go down. But I suppose The Acclaimed winning, with some cheap tactics at that, makes up for the rap battle “loss.” Caster calling out Bucks with a diss rap also worked out, and getting a tag title match already is pretty big. Obviously Bucks win but The Acclaimed being able to say they had a shot is what’s important. FTR had a great promo calling out Jurassic Express after the highlight reel, and I have a feeling they’re going to get involved in that Six Man Tag Jurassic Express has with The Dark Order to then set up their own match.
Rosa, Britt and Rebel had a good segment, that grudge match has to happen for one of the New Year’s Smash nights. Swole & Deeb VS Ivelisse & Diamante was a good match, and I’m surprised the Faces won in this situation given Ivelisse & Diamante are the tag cup winners. But I suppose it was just so Vicious Vixens could attack. I feel like Vickie is going to recruit Ivelisse & Diamante, and then Jade Cargill returns and we get that 8 Woman Tag where Brandi also returns. Shida being on Dark and then coming back next week, they’re taking a nice slow burn towards her next title match. It’s obviously going to be Abadon, and I bet it happens for one of the New Year’s Smash nights.
Omega VS Janela in the No Holds Barred was a great main event, though maybe with some points off for Callis droning on to put Omega over and then Omega getting in on the “commentary” himself. But that was still a good table spot from Janela. Omega of course wins, and I actually like that they’re continuing this idea of Omega facing the opponents he was meant to in the tournament. Omega VS Fenix is going to be great, as will be the continued feud of Pac, Archer and Eddie Kingston’s Fam. That was also a great segment, Pac VS Butcher will be fun, but I’m not sure the endgame if Archer and Pac are both here and going after Kingston.
My Score: 9.1/10

Y2J, Big Hurt, the Spanish God and the Proud ‘n’ Powerful are returning to AEW in style! But with The Pinnacle somewhere in the building and Mike Tyson expected to return, who’s getting taken out first?!
Hangman Page VS Max Caster w/ Anthony Bowens!
Did the Anxious Millennial Cowboy hear Platinum’s new single on AEW Dark last night? Would it change what Hangman’s about to do to Max if it did? Or maybe Max’s improv rap right here will rile him up! “Hangman, you a changed man. Used to be a star, now you fadin’! Platinum, the flyest on the air, catch you slippin’ like Joe Biden on the stairs! So check the thug process. I’m dancin’ with the devil like I’m Lil’ Nas X! And you a one trick pony! Treat me like a breathalyzer and bl-” WHOA~! Bowens stops Caster there, that is a step too far. You can’t say that on TNT, Max! But either way, The Acclaimed have arrived! But then Hangman BOOTS Bowens to get him out of the ring!
Hangman fires off on Caster, the bell rings and Hangman rings Caster’s bell! He bumps Caster off buckles over and over, and over and over, then stops to stomp a mudhole! The ref counts, Hangman lets off, and Hangman walks it dry. Hangman drags Caster up, CHOPS him back to the corner, and then whips him to ropes. Hangman CLOBBERS Caster at the ropes, suplexes but Caster slips out! Caster shoves, Hangman dodges and scoops to FALL AWAY SLAM! Hangman kips up, fans fire up, and Hangman snap suplexes Caster after all! Cover, ONE!! Caster surprises Hangman but he keeps his cool as fans rally up.
Hangman CHOPS Caster to a corner, CHOPS him again, but Caster turns things around to fire off forearms! Hangman shoves Caster to BOOT him down! Hangman drags Caster up, wrenches, hits an elbow breaker then wrings Caster to stomp him down! Then he drops a BIG senton! Cover, TWO! Hangman smirks as Caster bails out and fans rally up. Bowens checks on Caster, Hangman heads over but Caster drags him out. Hangman counter punches then RAMS Caster into railing! Hangman puts Caster in, Bowens gets in Hangman’s face, but Hangman lets him be. Caster dropkicks Hangman as he enters! Caster stomps away at the ropes, catches his breath, then stomps him more!
Caster CLUBS Hangman, whips but Hangman reverses to send Caster out of the ring! Hangman runs to TRIANGLE LARIAT Caster down! And then PLANCHAS! Direct hit and down goes Caster! Hangman drags Caster up, the ref counts but Hangman CHOPS Caster! Hangman refreshes the count, whips Caster but Caster reverses to send Hangman into railing! Caster runs in but is sent onto the railing! Caster’s gonna be rapping in a higher octave! Hangman then climbs the other railing to leap and LARIAT Caster down! Bowens gets in Hangman’s face again, but Hangman shrugs him off. Hangman gets Bowens’ boombox, tosses it aside, and puts Caster in the ring.
Hangman drags Caster to the corner but Bowens threatens him with the boombox! Caster YANKS Hangman into the post! The ref is busy with Caster and Bowens RAMS Hangman into railing! Bowens puts Hangman in, Caster WRINGS him out, and then Caster throws the arm into the mat. Caster drops knees on the arm, covers, TWO! Fans rally and jeer Caster, and Hangman CHOPS! Caster CLUBS the bad arm, drags Hangman down and has a hammerlock crossface! Fans rally as Hangman endures, and Hangman fights up to arm-drag free! Caster returns but Hangman DECKS him! And again! Hangman dodges to SPINEBUSTER Caster down!
Fans fire up as Caster goes to a corner. Hangman goes corner to corner to clothesline! Hangman keeps going, Caster blocks the suplex and elbows Hangman. Caster blocks the boot, too, spins Hangman but Hangman catches Caster for the EXPLODER! Cover, TWO! Both men are down but fans fire up as Caster goes to the apron. Hangman shakes the bad arm out, goes to the apron, drags Caster up, and Alabama lifts! Caster fights for his life, gets free and BOOTS! Hangman forearms, Caster forearms back and they brawl on the edge! Caster CLUBS the bad arm, but runs into an APRON BACK SUPLEX! Fans fire up, Hangman dumps Caster down, and he goes to the apron.
Hangman climbs a corner, but Bowens is there to distract him! Caster gets in to LEAP up, steady himself, and still SUPERPLEX Hangman down! Then he gets the arm, SHANKLY GATES! Hangman endures, crawls his way forward, but Caster sits deep on the hold! Hangman gets the ropebreak with a finger! The ref counts, Caster holds on until 4! Fans rally for Hangman but Caster climbs up top. SPRINBOARD, into a LARIAT! The fans fire up, Hangman Alabama lifts, for- No! Bowens slides the boombox in!

Winner: Hangman Page, by pinfall
The Cowboy secures that number one spot in the rankings! And of course, he toasts with some nearby fellow wrestlers! Will Hangman be saying cheers to a championship opportunity soon enough?
Tony Schiavone is in the ring.
AEW has great tag teams all around, but here is one of the great teams and the #1 contenders to the AEW World Tag Team Championships, DEATH TRIANGLE! PAC and Rey Fenix won the opportunity in the AEW Revolution Tag Team Battle Royal, but they and Penta El Zero Miedo all stand together with Schiavone. Their shot at the titles are coming, next week on Dynamite! They finally get their shots, but wait! The Best Friends show up? Orange Cassidy, Chuck Taylor and #JustTrent, with the honorary Best Friend, Kris Statlander, walk out on stage, and Cassidy gets the mic! “Y’know… It’s really nice to see all three of you together in the ring again.”
Footage plays, and it turns out to be a highlight reel of the history between these two trios! Revolution 2020 was when Death Triangle brutalized Cassidy after PAC beat him in a 1v1 match. Then on Dynamite from 5/13/2020 was when Fenix Ryder Kicks Cassidy down just because he could! Chuck says that it may have been awhile, but they still remember! Fenix laughs! These guys are crazy! Penta says it’s crazy how they’ve hold onto those moments! Pac says everyone should relax, because he understands why the Best Friend are here. They see the writing on the wall, and want a shot at the NEW AEW World Tag Team Champions already! Well they’ve got a lot of work to do because they are FAR from worthy! So jog on and get out of here!
Oh, well, alright. Trent says he was hurt, and now Best Friends are back of the line. They’ll work their way back up, because that’s not a problem when you’re the team with more wins than anyone in this company! But anyway, Pac and Triangle can calm down. The Best Friends are just here to give them a heads up. “The boys are back in town!” Oh, and their new alien friend. Fans fire up as the four put hands in, will the reunited Best Friends be out of this world?
Mike Tyson talks with Coach Urban Meyer.
Is Iron Mike giving or getting pointers on how to handle business?
The Inner Circle heads to the ring!
Fans again get to sing Judas for Jericho as he and the boys return officially, even though we saw them get payback on The Pinnacle last week. Jericho gets the mic first, and he says Jacksonville sounds great tonight! The Inner Circle has a lot to say after the break! Y2J knows his TV, and AEW does go to commercial!
AEW returns, fans chant for Inner Circle and Jericho says they ARE the Inner Circle, and they are Back in Black, baby! “And it was only one short month ago that we were in this ring and given the beatdown of a lifetime by the Pineapple.” Sammy whispers a correction to Jericho, The Pinnacle. And that beatdown taught them a lot. It gave them hospital stays, it gave them stitches, but it gave them a wake-up call. It revealed to them that they’d made a lot of bad decisions over the last six months, that hurt and insulted a lot of people. For that, Jericho apologizes to those people and to the fans.
But all those decisions were on MJF, aka “My Jerkoff Friend.” And My Jerkoff Friend says he outsmarted the Inner Circle, mostly because he’s smarter than Jericho. And that’s true, Jericho isn’t the smartest in a few areas. High school chemistry, terrible. His teacher even asked after a second failed test, “Are you on dope?” An exact quote! Jericho wasn’t, he just wasn’t good in Chemistry. But who is? What Jericho is smart in is pro-wrestling! That is why he brought My Jerkoff Friend into the Inner circle. Not to take him under his wing, but to keep him under his thumb.
Jericho knows how dangerous My Jerkoff Friend is and how talented he is, and how much personality and potential he has. Jericho wanted to use him for all of that, and suck the life out of him into the Inner Circle. They had it all perfectly planned, and knew that MJF would eventually show his true colors. They were ready to kick MJF’s ass, but they didn’t think he’d be a step ahead. They got outsmarted by a man who can do everything except for put on a spray tan. Last week, MJF was oranger than Cassidy and had more streaks than that toilet bowl Jericho shoved his face into! Jericho can’t wait to swirly him again! Fans chant “Swirly! Swirly!”
MJF is only 25 years old! When Jericho was 25, he was still having wet dreams! But MJF at 25 is at the pinnacle of pro-wrestling. See what he did there? But here’s the thing! MJF, you consider yourself a fine wine, that he’ll get better with age. But he doesn’t want to wait for the aging, he wants it all now! He wants to be better than The GOAT, Chris Jericho, now. Those are big, big shoes to fill, MJF. You gotta go smaller, take baby steps. Be better than Peter Avalon, or Michael Nakazawa, or “that stupid Burberry scarf you’ve been wearing for a few years. It’s tired, it’s old, it’s stale, and it sucks!” Time to change it up, MJF! Plus, Jericho was rocking the scarf look a few years ago, so if you’re better than Jericho, why is he stealing Jericho’s shit?
But Jericho has an old clipboard in the back if MJF wants to add it to the list of things he’s stolen from Jericho! Y’see, MJF isn’t as good as he thinks he is, and he believes his own hype. Jericho sees MJF listening to the critics and the fans online. MJF would bee-line after every match or promo he’s ever had just to check what people thought! That’s called “Being a mark.” But Jericho makes it “being a Max,” because Max is a mark for himself! The true issue is that MJF knows he will never, ever be better than Jericho. He will never be better than Jericho, and you know it. That’s because Jericho is a true fine wine that has aged and fermented and soured.
Speaking of sour, just look at the men My Jerkoff Friend has aligned with! Tully Blanchard! He’s the greatest mind in pro-wrestling history? Really? No, he’s the third-string member of the Four Horsemen, stuck between Ole Anderson and Paul Roma. Then there’s FTR! They would be one of the best tag teams in the world today, but they’re completely interchangeable! Which one is which? It’s like the AEW version of The Jonas Brothers, where you know they’re good, you know they make money, but you don’t know any of their names! Is that Dax? Cash? Ax? Smash? Axel? Slash? “I DON’T KNOW!!”
And then of course, there’s Shawn Spears. Such a great upside, so they say, but Jericho’s never seen it. All Jericho has is the number on his phone from when Spears called him after getting fired from “The Fed” 10 years ago, asking for advice. Spears aligning himself with My Jerkoff Friend is about as good a move as rocking the blonde mohawk in 2021. And then there’s Wardlow! Of of course! A million dollar body with a 13 cent brain, and guess what? He’s so dumb, he has to strip naked to count to 21! Think about it, Jericho’s seen him do it. But compared to the Inner Circle, the NEW Inner Circle that will dominate AEW once more but with the fans all behind them, The Pinnacle is good, can beat the crap out of them, but who cares?! The Inner Circle loves to fight!
The bottom line is, the Inner Circle will shove the faces of The Pinnacle up each other’s asses and form a human centipede, with MJF in the back! “You want blood? You want violence? You got it!!” They’ve been waiting for a match since March 25th of last year! Why play grab ass anymore? You want blood and violence? You get it! May 5th, right here at Daily’s Place, for the first time ever, Pinnacle VS Inner Circle, BLOOD AND GUTS!! The Inner Circle is back in black, and now that they’re back, they will kick the ever living shit out of the Pinnacle! “The worst is yet to come, God help you for it!!” FINALLY, the match the world has wanted to see! Will MJF’s future be nothing but suffering for what he has done?
Backstage interview with Christian Cage.
Dasha congratulates Captain Charisma on his victorious AEW in-ring debut. So then, how is he feeling? And what’s next? Christian says last week “was the culmination of an entire year of me scratching, clawing, and grinding in complete solitude for that very moment of stepping through those ropes, kneeling down, kissing that canvas, and taking back what was taken from me seven years ago.” Now he can’t talk about last week without talking about his opponent, Frankie Kazarian. Kaz took him to the deep waters, and pushed him so far down. Christian’s lungs were on fire, and he loved every single second of it!
Fans were in awe of Kaz’s performance, but not Christian, because Christian has always known what Kaz is about. Kaz knows that Christian isn’t like everyone else. When you step into the ring with Christian, you have to bring it up another level. Christian makes others level up! But then Taz interrupts and says for those who don’t know, these two have known each other for a long time. That all said, seven years is a long time. Taz has a team that can help Christian get where he wants to be, so Taz will just get right to his offer: Christian can join Team Taz! They can all help each other, and a guy with Christian’s wealth of knowledge would be a great help.
And before Christian can say too much first, Taz won’t put him on the spot. Christian can sleep on it. Will Captain Charisma choose to join the Path of Rage?
Jurassic Express VS Bear Country!
Two forces of nature will collide, but #OneWillFall. Godzilla VS Kong is in theaters, but here is a pretty good teaser right here! Will Jungle Boy & Luchasaurus represent for the reptiles? Or will the burly Boulder & Bronson bring the heat on behalf of warm-blooded beasts everywhere?
The teams sort out, Luchasaurus steps up to Boulder and fans fire up already! Bronson and JB walk over, and Bronson shoves JB right down! Luchasaurus choke grips Bronson, but Boulder shoves Luchasaurus to the corner! JB returns to SHOTGUN dropkick Bronson, then dodges Boulder to set him up for Luchasaurus’ BOOT! Another SHOTGUN, another BOOT and the Bears are out of the ring! JB builds speed to DIVE into Bronson! JB keeps going, and DIVES again! JB keeps it up, and he FLIES, but into the arms of Bear Country! But JB wriggles free as Luchasaurus FLIES in and bowls Bear Country over!
Fans fire up as JB and Luchasaurus regroup. They get Boulder in, Luchasaurus drags Boulder up but Boulder RAMS him into the corner! Bronson tags in, Boulder whips him in and Bronson SPLASHES Luchasaurus in the corner! Bronson fires off hands, Luchasaurus shoves back but Bronson ROCKS him! Tag to Boulder and now Bronson whips Boulder in, but into a boot then KNEE! Bronson runs in, Luchasaurus goes up and over, then handsprings to dodge Boulder! Hot tag to JB! Luchasaurus elbows Bronson, JB leaps but Boulder catches the rana! Luchasaurus is up top, and LEAPS, but he just bounces off Boulder! Boulder keeps JB up to BOMB him!
AEW goes picture in picture as Boulder grits his teeth as he paces around JB and fans rally up. Boulder brings JB up, scoops him and SLAMS him!

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?

JD drags Darby up the corner with him, but Darby SLAPS JD! And back hands and SLAPS and SLAPS and SLAPS!

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 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 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.
