8 Man Tag: The Young Bucks & SoCal Uncensored VS The Acclaimed & The Hybrid2!
Matt & Nick Jackson enter with their friends, Christopher Daniels & Frankie Kazarian, and they start the New Year’s Smash right with this huge tag match! But will they be able to shut up Max Caster, Anthony Bowens, Jack Evans & Angelico to make 2021 even better?
Bowens has upgraded the 5 Tool Boombox to also shout out Snoop Dogg, and Caster of course has the mic to give us a new diss track. “Yo! Yo! Yo yo! The Bucks cheated us, say yo, you all saw it! We should be the champs, and yo, y’all thought it! We should be fine but they won’t make ’em pay, so I’m like TK, yo whatever you say. Just don’t be mad when Acclaimed starts takin’. Punch ’em in the chest, yo, I call that heartbreaking. We the John Cena guys? That’s so petty! But we John Cena, the Young Bucks’re Janetties!” OH~!
But Caster ain’t done! “Kazarian, your rhymes are wack! That shit sounds worse than a Snoop Dogg track! Doggy style is a thing of the past! I’m a make a new fetish: us whippin’ yer ass, BITCH!” That was hot stuff, but are the 5 Tool Player and the last of the true hybrids going to all pay for the check Caster’s mouth just wrote?
The teams sort out, Bowens starts and he calls out The Fallen Angel. The fans are fired up for SCU as they circle, and Daniels DECKS Caster!

Angelico throws Matt out but Nick CHOPS him, and goes LUCHA LIBRE~! Nick gets both TH2 to send them both out! And then Nick goes to the corner to ESCALARA! Direct hit takes out TH2 and Caster again!

Caster and TH2 turn things around on the Bucks and send them into railing! Bowens clubs Daniels, Evans goes to the apron, FLYING SCREW KICK! TH2 puts Daniels in for Bowens, he stomps Daniels around as fans boo and jeer. Bowens drags Daniels up, tags Caster, and The Acclaimed double whip and trip him to drop an elbow and a basement dropkick! Cover, TWO! Caster tries again, TWO! Caster grinds Daniels down, drags him over, and Angelico tags in to stomp Daniels down. Fans rally for SCU but Angelico wrenches to an elbow breaker.
Tag to Evans, springboard DUMDUM STOMP SLAM! Evans jackknife covers, TWO! Daniels crawls but Evans clubs him down. Evans taunts Kaz and the Bucks then drags Daniels up to bump him off buckles. Tag to Bowens and they mug Daniels. Bowens rains down rights on Daniels’ head, covers, TWO! Bowens drags Daniels up, tags Caster and then he hops up to hit a BLOCKBUSTER! Caster goes up and drops the elbow! Tag to Evans, PHOENIX SPLASH! Angelico tags and climbs, but he hops down to La Magistrol, for a crucifix stretch! Evans and The Acclaimed knock Kaz and the Bucks down while Daniels endures the Navarro Dos Mil! Daniels moves around, and gets the ropebreak!
The ref counts, Angelico lets go at 4, and he drags Daniels around to stomp him. Tag to Bowens and Bowens tells Daniels he’s a fool! Daniels elbows Bowens back and then swings, into a waistlock. Daniels switches, Bowens switches, repeat. Bowens breaks the loop with an elbow, but he runs into BLUE THUNDER BOMB! Daniels can’t hold the cover but he and Bowens crawl, hot tags to Evans and Kaz! Kaz dodges Evans, DECKS Angelico, and rallies with lariats! Kaz flips Evans to CHOP him down! Kaz whips Evans, Evans reverses and Caster grabs Kaz. Evans runs in but Kaz moves and the dropkick hits Caster! Kaz GERMAN SUPLEXES and bridges Evans, TWO!
Fans fire up with Kaz as he drags Evans. Kaz dragon sleepers, suplexes but Evans slips out. Evans shoves Kaz but Kaz DECKS Angelico! Kaz turns around into a FLYING KICK! STANDING SKY TWISTER! Cover, TWO! Evans CLOBBERS Kaz, drags him over and tags in Bowens. They mug Kaz, double whip, but Kaz crisscrosses them into each other! Hot tag to Matt Jackson!

Winners: SoCal Uncensored & The Young Bucks, by pinfall
Rivals and friends make for an amazing combination, and Kaz gets the mic to say, “That is how you start off a year!” Nothing like getting a W on a New Year’s Smash version of Dynamite! But here’s the deal. SCU laid down the gauntlet on themselves. The next time they lose 2v2, they’re done as a tag team forever! BUT that is not happening!
Daniels takes the mic and says if this is their last hurrah, then the Bucks need to know, SCU has their back any time they need it. Except for when they battle for the tag team titles! SCU doesn’t just want those belts, they want to win them off the best tag team on the planet! The Bucks shake hands with SCU, but which happens first? SCU making it to the titles? Or falling to their own ultimatum?
Jon Moxley heads to the ring!
The Maniac is finally back in the flesh after losing the AEW World Championship in that Don Callis screwjob. Jericho’s the only one upset about him being here, and Moxley gets a mic to speak. “You may have expected me to come out here tonight, cussing up a storm, screaming bloody murder about the events that transpired on December 2nd. But where I come from, life isn’t fair and complaining, bitching and moaning is largely a waste of time. This is an unforgiving sport in an unforgiving world, and sometimes you are on the bad end of a bad deal.” When that happens, sometimes all you can do is endure, grit your teeth, and take it on the chin. But you also plant your feet firmly in the ground, stare down adversity and never back down!
So no, Moxley isn’t going anywhere, but what is he going to do about Kenny Omega “and that guy he’s hanging around with that looks like a used car salesman?” For Moxley, he sees things black ‘n’ white and has zero tolerance for shitty people. So the appropriate response would be to run down Kenny and “that a**hole, Callis,” and beat them BOTH to a bloody pulp with a crowbar! But, tonight, the AEW World Championship is on the line. Moxley gave his blood and soul to protect that title’s integrity. Rey Fenix has his opportunity that he scratched and clawed for over 13 YEARS, with his own reckless abandon, blood, guts, and heart, “the way it’s supposed to be!”
Moxley says it is not his right to interfere with another man’s destiny, but he warns Omega. “You are not safe, you will never be safe. Just remember: I will get even, and then some. When I say I’m going to do something, I do it. When I have a responsibility, I uphold it. When I make a commitment, I see it through.” It doesn’t matter how long it takes, Moxley will forever be the Bogeyman that lurks over Omega’s shoulder. Moxley promises him that one day, Omega will look into the eyes of the devil and beg for mercy when he realizes he crossed the wrong guy! A powerful ultimatum from the Death Rider! But when will that day come that he makes the Cleaner pay?
Backstage interview with Chuck Taylor and Orange Cassidy.
Clearly Trent is still injured, but what is the update on his condition? Trent’s torn pec will keep him out four to five months. Miro then comes over to rubs that in. What a long time! Miro says that sure sucks for Trent, but it sucks for Chuck, too. That means Best Friends is on the shelf for four to five months. Because obviously Trent is the leader of this little group. But Chuckie can’t always hid behind their mascot here, he has to man up! If he can’t, that’s fine. Miro can be the new best friend. Chuck can fold Miro’s clothes, wash his car, all that.
Chuck gets it, Trent was Miro’s “young boy.” But Chuck also spent time in Japan and knows how that works. Chuck is not going to be that for Miro. But how about this? Next week, New Year’s Smash Night Two, Chuck beats Miro’s “goofy ass.” Miro was hoping Chuck would ask. Make it more interesting. Since Chuck won’t be Miro’s “friend,” after Miro beats Chuck’s ass, Chuck becomes the Young Boy until Beach Break. Fine, whatever makes this over with faster. Chuck’s dumber than he looks. See you next Dynamite!
Jake Hager VS Wardlow!
It would seem The Inner Circle is NOT fine, as the Big Hurt and the War Dog still have the need to throw down! As the rest of the faction watches ringside, who proves themselves the biggest and the baddest behemoth in the Inner Circle?
The bell rings and the two start shoving. They tie up, are in a deadlock, so they break. Fans rally and duel as the two circle.

Fans fire up as Wardlow stares Hager down. Hager trips Wardlow, hammers away, but Wardlow kicks Hager away. Wardlow gets around, waistlocks but Hager elbows free. Hager stalks Wardlow to a corner to throw big body shots. Hager whips corner to corner, Wardlow reverses and storms over to throw haymakers!

They collide yet again, but still neither falls! Wardlow swings, Hager dodges, Wardlow hurdles?! And then clotheslines Hager and himself out of the ring!
Both men land on their feet! And start throwing hands! Wardlow ROCKS Hager, but Hager comes back, DOUBLE CLOTHESLINES finally knock both men down!

MJF is the most pleased as Wardlow has been his muscle since day one. Hager is frustrated, but he gives a fist bump to Wardlow! Does this squash the beef between the biggest men in the Inner Circle?
Private Party is pumped backstage!
Isiah Kassidy tells Marq Quen that it’s 2021, a new year, new beginnings. They’ll start this off right! He has the gin, but Quen doesn’t have the juice? SNOOP DOGG HAS IT!! Snoop wants to celebrate! But Matt Hardy shows up and has the contracts written up. He is so happy they’re going through with this, and promises Private Party that they will not regret this. Hardy wants them to trust him. They do, but they want to know what was up with him bringing in a chair for that match. Don’t fixate on things like that, this is about winning! They want to be kings, right? Kings like Snoop, right? So you gotta win! Kings are winners! And they have the untapped potential that he will bring it out. 33% is a hefty manager’s fee, but it will pay off.
Before Private Party signs the contracts, they have some things he should look out. Quen hands over the conditions, Hardy unfolds the paper, and he reads. Yes, look, last page. Well okay then. This looks good to them. Hardy can’t wait for Private Party to be iconic. Snoop hopes to be invited. Oh they’ve got him. And all those third party things like Twitch and Cameo? Hardy isn’t a monster, they can still do those as much as they want. Word? Word! Hardy takes these to his lawyer and says they’ll meet back up for dinner. Will the #HardyParty be even bigger in 2021?
AEW holds an official weigh-in for next week’s TNT Championship match!
Team Taz heads out first, Brian Cage holding the FTW Championship up high. He wants to be a double champion, though perhaps unofficially, but just how much of an advantage will he have over Darby Allin? We find out after the break.
AEW returns and Darby makes his entrance, with the brand new design for the TNT title in hand! Tony Schiavone presides over this, explaining that the red belt edition was retired and handed down to Brodie Lee Junior last week. Now the new black belt is on the line as we have this weigh-in. Taz asks why Cage is weighing in first. As the challenger? Yes. Well obviously Cage is bigger, but is Schiavone making the rules now? Cage goes first, and Schiavone says he weighs in at 272 pounds. Taz says that’s all solid muscle! Now the champion, Darby, steps up to take his turn. Taz promises no one will bite Darby so go ahead and get on the scale.
Darby stands on the scale, Schiavone adjusts the weights and… It’s 170 pounds! A 100 pound difference! Well obviously! But Taz points out Darby might be even lighter, because he has all this stuff on! The jacket, the chains, the shoes, a metal-studded belt. Darby takes the mic from Schiavone to tell Taz, “You may say this feud has been nine months in the making, but in reality, it’s 27 years. I’ve dealt shit like this from people like you my entire life.” And we all know how this ends tonight, so just get to the fun. Darby gets his skateboard and dares Team Taz to do something! Taz says Schiavone should get himself out of the ring so they can handle business!
“Here’s the deal, Darby! You had a chance-” But the lights go out! The snow, the crow, it’s STIIIIING! Team Taz bails out as Sting shows up from the ramp and has his bat again! Darby and Sting are not intimidated by Team Taz, but will it be the other way around? Taz is getting sick of this! Taz tells Darby that with God as his witness, we crown a NEW TNT Champion, The Machine, “you rotten son of a bitch!!”
MJF has AEW Media following him again.
Hager is still upset and he is hitting whatever is around. MJF knows he feels like a loser, but he’s actually a winner. No one at home is half the athlete Hager is. Not everyone can just get in and get out of a ring like Hager. Hager is still undefeated in the Octagon, so be proud of that. Hager says he almost dropped MJF, but he appreciates MJF checking in on him. But still go so he can vent a bit more. MJF understands and takes his leave. Is MJF, of all people, going to be the glue that holds the Inner Circle together?
Backstage interview with Jurassic Express.
Marko Stunt was “confronted” by “Negative One,” Brodie Jr, but all in good fun. What is next for this trio? Stunt says we all know Jurassic Express likes to have fun, but this isn’t that. “We are on a quest for the AEW Tag Team Championships!” But FTR comes in and asks Stunt why he’s talking about “We, we, we.” Stunt does NOTHING, brings NOTHING to the table, and is a glorified mascot! He lets the dinosaur and Jungle Boy do the dirty work! Maybe Negative One wasn’t just poking fun. Maybe Stunt IS a loser.
Oh is that so? How about Stunt beats their ass next week, taking Luchasaurus’ spot in that tag match next week?! FTR laughs at JB and Stunt against the absolute best team. Fiats versus Ferraris! Challenge accepted! See you later! #TopGuysOut! Tully pats Stunt’s head, but JB holds him back. Will the fury of Fun-Size prove everyone wrong?
Cody Rhodes w/ Arn Anderson & Snoop Dogg VS Matt Sydal!
Marketed as “The Go Big Show match,” and sponsored by it for that matter, this has actually been a long time coming. For all their time in WWE at the same time, and even ROH, these two never had a 1v1 match. Now, as the American Nightmare is growing his franchise and as the third eye opens, who goes big and shows the other who has been the better all along?
The bell rings, Sydal and Cody circle, run the ropes, then tie up. Cody powers Sydal back, Sydal waistlocks but Cody switches. Sydal bucks the roll up off but Cody sweeps the legs to cover.

Sydal whips corner to corner, Cody reverses but Sydal elbows him back. Sydal goes up, moonsaults and manages an arm-drag! Cody ends up in a corner, Sydal runs in to dropkick! Sydal covers, TWO! Coach Snoop is relieved as Cody gets out to the ramp.

Sydal WRECKS Cody with another dropkick, then goes out after him. Sydal stands Cody up, Cody turns things around at the railing, but Sydal dodges and the forearm ROCKS Serpentico! Serpentico flounders up and Luther is furious! Cody explains that was an accident but Sydal puts Cody in.
Sydal climbs up, leaps and crossbodies! Cody rolls through to the SHARPSHOOTER! Sydal endures, fans rally and duel, Sydal powers up and reaches and gets the ropebreak! Cody lets go and Snoop gives some suggestions from Arn Anderson’s play card. Cody stomps Sydal’s leg over and over, then the ribs! AEW goes picture in picture as Cody snapmares and KNEES Sydal down!
Cody drops down to do some push-ups, showing off his conditioning. Snoop gives more signals, basically saying Cody should stay focused. Cody drags Sydal up, wrenches and whips, then knees Sydal down at the ropes. Cody brings Sydal up to scoop and slam! Cody runs to drop a knee like the Nature Boy! Sydal writhes, Snoop unlocks his inner Belichick as he puts up the hood. Cody whips, Sydal reverses and Sydal runs in to elbow Cody, then ENZIGURI! Cody flops down, Sydal covers, TWO! Sydal grows frustrated but he KICKS Cody’s leg out! STANDING MARIPOSA! Cover, TWO!
Sydal and Cody grit their teeth as they get up. Sydal CHOPS Cody to a corner, but Cody turns things around to CHOP back! Sydal CHOPS, Cody CHOPS, repeat! They CHOP until Cody kicks low and elbows Sydal on the back! Cody fires himself up, Sydal sits up with a scowl, but Cody drags Sydal up to hoist him up top! Cody clubs Sydal, climbs up behind him, and AEW returns to single picture as Cody dragon sleepers Sydal on the top rope! INVERTED SUPERPLEX! Snoop is fired up with the fans as Cody and Sydal are both down! Cody crawls to a cover, TWO! Sydal survives but Cody gets the legs. Cody drags Sydal to a drop zone, goes back up top, but Sydal gets up to AVOID the moonsault!
Sydal JUMPING KNEES Cody down! Now Sydal heads up top, aims at Cody in the drop zone, and STANDING SHOOTING STARS onto knees! Cody drags Sydal up, inverted DDT! Cover, TWO! Cody goes up top again, Sydal is up and gets under the jump. Sydal comes back, tilt-o-whirl takedown! COBRA CLUTCH CROSSFACE! Cody fights up, elbows free, and ROCKS Sydal with a right! Sydal KICKS, CHOPS and SOBATS! Sydal runs, but Cody clotheslines Sydal and himself out! Both men tumble to the floor but Cody is up first. Cody puts Sydal in, runs and BOOTS, but Sydal ducks it to spin and roundhouse! Cody avoids, BEAUTIFUL DISASTER! Cover, TWO!!
Fans fire up and chant “This is Awesome!” Snoop agrees as Cody drags Sydal up. Sydal slips out of the Inverted Especial to waistlock but Cody switches. Sydal elbows free, then hops up to spin, RANA! Cover, TWO!! Cody narrowly escapes but Sydal ROUNDHOUSES! LIGHTNING SPIRAL!! Cover, TWO!?! Cody survives but Sydal isn’t stopping there! Sydal fires up, and JUMPING KNEE- No, Cody blocks the knee and spins Sydal into the dragon sleeper, for CROSS RHODES!! Cody isn’t done, he drags Sydal up for another CROSS RHODES!! Cover, Cody wins!
Winner: Cody Rhodes, by pinfall
But Serpentico and Luther attack! Chaos Project still took offense to that mishap, and Snoop isn’t sure what to do! Sydal ENZIGURIS Luther! ROUNDHOUSE for Serpentico, and then Cody scoop slams him! But SNOOP wants to go up top?! Sydal lets him, Snoop reaches the top rope, and Cody holds Serpentico in place, for a SNOOP SPLASH! “Cover,” Snoop “wins!” Fans are thunderous as even D O Double G gets big momentum for the Go Big Show!
AEW Women’s World Championship: Hikaru Shida VS Abadon!
After being haunted and hunted by the Living Dead Girl, the Full Metal Warrior faces her fears and defends her title! Will Shida vanquish the vicious Abadon? Or will the new year begin with a true reign of terror?
The introductions are made, but Abadon rushes Shida at the stage! They brawl, Shida SMACKS Abadon with the kendo stick! But Abadon sits up! Abadon goes after Shida and wants to bite Shida again!

Shida rolls to wrench, then rolls with the wrench, to handspring and basement dropkick! Fans fire up as Shida takes off the scarf to show the marks Abadon left on her neck. Abadon crawls to the apron, Shida goes out and stomps her down!
Shida throws haymakers on Abadon then gets space, to run in and KNEE- NO! Abadon blocks, and BITES Shida’s leg! Shida drags Abadon out to club away on Abadon, but Abadon choke grips and SLAMS Shida into railing! Abadon shrieks like a banshee then drags Shida to the ring. Abadon goes in the ring to stop the count, then goes back out after Shida. Abadon drags Shida under the ring?! The ref tries to stop this, but he hurries under after them! After a few moments, the ref comes out, and Abadon crawls out. Where is Shida?! Is that actual blood in Abadon’s mouth!? Did she eat Shida alive!? Shida crawls out from under the ring, and her neck was the target again!
Abadon throws Shida into the ring, she throws forearms over and over in the corner, then climbs up. SHRIEKING FACEBUSTER! Cover, TWO!!

Tay Conti speaks.
With Anna Jay and the Dark Order by her side, Tay Conti tells NWA Women’s World Champion, Serena Deeb, “I do have a lot of respect for you. But don’t get me wrong. I’m coming for that championship.” Tay gives us a reminder that she is a blue belt in jiujitsu, a blackbelt in judo, and won’t be alone. She’ll have Jay and the Dark Order there to support the NEW NWA Women’s World Champion! Is this a sign that Tay decided to #JoinDarkOrder?
AEW World Championship: Kenny Omega w/ Don Callis VS Rey Fenix!
It’s the first main event of 2021! The Best Bout Machine was meant to battle the Firebird in the AEW World Title Eliminator Tournament, but injuries forced the Firebird to step down. Death Triangle has confidence in Fenix, and vows the Cleaner’s belt collecting ends now! But this is “the man who in 2020 had more wins than anyone in AEW, and unlike Jon Moxley in 2020, he did not lose a singles match. He has held the AEW World title for 35 days. At this point, many people already consider him the greatest AEW World Champion of all time. His 2017 NJPW match with Okada was just voted the greatest in the history of WrestleKingdom.
“His plans tonight include winning once again, followed by hosting the debut of 2.SHOW on the AEW Video Games YouTube channel immediately following Dynamite. Viewing is available everywhere from Texas to Montana, California to NOOORTH CAROLINA~, which he says does not compare to his hometown of Winnipeg, Manatoba, Canada.

With the introductions already given, the belt is raised, and this epic main event happens after the break!

Omega full nelsons but Fenix pries at the arms to get free. Fenix drop toeholds, hooks the leg, Omega rolls and hooks the leg to SMASH the knee! Omega stomps Fenix, brings him up and wrenches to then drop elbows on the arm. Omega wrenches, hammerlocks, Fenix elbows and Shiranuis for a flying mare! Things speed up, and Omega SPIKE RANAS outta nowhere! Fans are divided but Omega grins as Fenix bails out.
The Terminator Drums start up, Omega builds speed, but Fenix gets in to RANA back! Omega goes to the ramp, then around the way, and fans rally as Fenix builds speed! Fenix fakes Omega out, then BOOTS him down! And springboards to RANA Omega into the railing! Fans fire up more as Fenix goes after Omega with forearms. Fenix puts Omega in, climbs in and runs at the corner, but Omega ducks the springboard sobat! Omega kicks low, hops up, reels Fenix in, and TORNADO DDT’s! But Fenix handsprings through!?

Omega is a bit surprised but he still confidently drags Fenix up. Omega scoops Fenix, and hits a BACKBREAKER! Fenix writhes and rolls to the apron but Omega drags him back in. Omega kicks Fenix around, but Fenix CHOPS back! And CHOPS again! Omega CHOPS, Fenix CHOPS, but Omega CHOPS Fenix off his feet! Omega drags Fenix up, waistlocks, and CLUBS him on the back. Fans rally and duel as Omega paces.
Omega drags Fenix up in a waistlock but Fenix elbows. Omega back suplexes, Fenix lands on his feet to dodge and springboard for a FLYING HEADBUTT! Fans fire up and Fenix stumbles, to kick and CHOP and knuckle lock. Fenix goes up, up, but Omega shoves him down! Omega swings but Fenix blocks and CHOPS! Fenix springboards, Omega breaks free but Fenix just jumps around to adjust, springboard missile dropkick! Omega bails out, Fenix builds speed, and DIVES!! Direct hit and they both go into the railing! Fenix somehow doesn’t end up in the front row with the Gunn Club! Fans are thunderous with “THIS IS AWESOME!” as Fenix puts Omega back in!
Fenix drags Omega up, puts him in a corner and CHOPS again! Fenix whips, Omega reverses to fireman’s carry but Fenix fights free! Omega is in a corner, Fenix runs into a back elbow! Omega goes up and over and rolls, but Fenix boots back! Fenix goes up, QUEBRADA GERMAN SUPLEX?! Cover, TWO!!! Fans are loving this as both men slowly rise. Omega goes to an apron, Fenix runs over and goes up, up and DUMDUM STOMPS Omega to the apron! Callis panics and checks on Omega as AEW goes picture in picture!
Fenix flops down to fetch Omega, to send him into railing! Fenix puts Omega in, covers, but they’re in the ropes. Fenix shoves Omega over, covers, ONE!! The delay may have spared Omega but Fenix keeps his focus. Fenix eggs Omega on as he pushes him around. Omega smirks but Fenix CHOPS! Omega CHOPS back! Fenix CHOPS, Omega stings but comes back to CHOP! Fenix CHOPS again, they both stand up and Omega CHOPS Fenix down! Fenix sits up, Omega kicks at him, then throws forearm after forearm! Fenix CHOPS, Omega digs his fingers into Fenix’s eyes! The ref counts, Omega stops at 4, and he pushes Fenix around. Omega runs in to CHOP again!
Fenix CHOPS from the mat, Omega CHOPS him on the back! Fenix flops over, but flounders up, and Omega is on him. Fenix throws body shots as AEW returns to single picture and Fenix sobats, CHOPS and suplexes, only for Omega to suplex! Fenix fights free and SUPERKICKS!

Fenix barely survives but Omega isn’t done! Electric Chair, ONE WINGED ANGEL!!! Cover, Omega wins!!!
Winner: Kenny Omega, by pinfall (still AEW World Champion)
The Firebird got the arm up at 3.01 but that’s too little too late! Omega has conquered another contender, and Callis celebrates with him in the ring. Callis has a mic and he says, “Ladies and gentlemen, you’ve witnessed history.” They’re going to give us something a little extra. Omega beat Fenix, so why not we witness the end of the career of Fenix? Or no, what’s going on backstage? Eddie Kingston and The Fam are beating down the rest of Death Triangle! Kingston sits Pac up while Butcher and Blade continue to mug Pentagon! Kingston winks and Bunny Allie laughs, and Callis sarcastically says, “My goodness!” What an unsafe working environment!
Callis then asks Fenix if he remembers them saying his brother, Penta, wouldn’t be coming to help him. What IS coming for Fenix is a One Winged Angel into the scrapheap! Omega drags Fenix up, but here comes MOXLEY! And a barbed-wire bat!! Callis runs for his life but Omega turns around into a barbed wire BASH! Moxley winds up and tells Callis this is what they get! Callis stays far away as Moxley aims at Omega! But here come THE GOOD BROTHERS!! The Impact Wrestling Tag Team Champions and good friends of Kenny Omega’s, Luke Gallows & Karl A0nderson, are here on AEW! And they’re saving Omega by jumping Moxley! They stomp away and rain down fists!
Fans are going nuts, “Too Sweet! WOOP WOOP!” as Gallows & Anderson mug Moxley, and hit MAGIC KILLER!! Callis is fired up and Omega grins as he and the Good Brothers stomp Moxley then mug him more! Anderson fetches the barbed wire bat for Omega, and Omega SLUGS Moxley on the back! And again! And again, and again, and again! But here come the Varsity Blondes, Griff Garrison and Brian Pillman Jr, but they’re no match for a 3v2 like this! Griff gets tossed, then so does BPJ! Shawn Dean and Fuego del Sol try but they get DECKED before even getting in the ring! More of AEW’s roster tries, from Danny Limelight to Baron Black to Louie Valle, but they all get tossed!
Omega SLUGS Ryzin, then dares anyone else to try, while Gallows POWERBOMBS Fuego through a table!! Gallows uppercuts Limelight down, stalks up to push BPJ and Griff around, and then he regroups with Anderson. The Good Brothers sit Moxley up and Omega winds up to SLUG Moxley in the chest! Omega compliments Moxley on making him flip the switch, and then he rubs the belt in Moxley’s face. Moxley DECKS Anderson but Omega SLUGS him again! Anderson and Gallows stomp Moxley down, and even use their own title belts to knock him down!
But now the YOUNG BUCKS run out! Friends to all of these guys, the Bucks want an explanation! Callis says this was all self-defense because Moxley brought the bat in! The bat is tossed aside, but then the Varsity Blondes grab Omega! They expect the AEW Tag Team Champions to fight on their side, but as Gallows CLOBBERS BPJ, Matt SUPERKICKS Griff!! Again, Omega is still their friend, but that doesn’t mean this is “the band” getting back together. The Bucks still want an explanation, but Omega simply throws up the Too Sweet! The Good Brothers do it with him, but what about the Bucks? Nick and Matt… THROW IT UP!! Is Bullet Club truly for life?!
Holy crap! Given the circumstances, the great tribute episode we got to Brodie Lee/Jon Huber, this New Year’s Smash event was worth the wait. We got a great 8 Man Tag to open between some great teams, especially the combination of long time rivals and friends, Young Bucks and SCU. I loved the crisscross of finishers, such as Kaz and Nick doing the BTE Trigger, and of course finishing with Daniels and Matt doing Best Meltzer Ever. They officially established the obvious story, SCU wants to earn their way to a title match and face the Bucks, championships or bust. That is going to be their 2021, and who knows if they pull it off.
Hager VS Wardlow was great stuff, a pure fight of big, mean powerhouses. I am surprised Wardlow won, but I see now that MJF used the moment to get in Hager’s good graces. There is a very strong chance MJF is making moves to get on everyone’s good side to then usurp the leadership from Jericho, and that’d be a pretty good story for the faction in 2021. Chuck VS Miro with the special Young Boy bet stipulation is also an interesting story to at least bring these trios to Beach Break in February. I have a feeling Miro wins so he can subject Chuck to humiliating things, and then Trent makes a return to ruin the Superbad wedding as revenge.
Sting is great, Darby is great, Team Taz is great, but the weigh-in for a non-weight-class belt doesn’t make sense. That was all just a vehicle to further establish what many of us had already figured, and that is Sting teaming with Darby to bring the fight to Team Taz. The new TNT belt looks pretty good, but I feel like that “red ribbon” with “champion” on it stands out too much. And honestly, the design didn’t look that different from the belt they retired. But the match of Darby VS Cage will still be great, with Darby surely still retaining somehow.
I like that we got a promo establishing Matt Hardy is officially managing Private Party, and I bet that will all fall apart at some point as he tries to push them into being Heels. I like that Snoop got to have a part in that because of Gin ‘n’ Juice, and I wonder what those secret demands from Private Party are. I am pretty sure FTR goaded Stunt into wanting in on the match, and things are going according to their plan. I can’t be sure if Stunt wins to prove the haters wrong, or he tries too hard and that is why they lose. Either one makes for good story with Jurassic Express, but I’m leaning towards FTR winning.
Cody VS Sydal was very good, and Snoop did a good job being the corner man. The thing with Chaos Project was clearly just to set up Snoop having a moment, though, but it was still pretty fun. I just wish TNT didn’t go so hard on having AEW hype up the Go Big Show. Yes, it’s very exciting and it’s a big investment, but I don’t know. I’m certainly not going to bother watching whole episodes. Can it at least be used on AEW as a way to make Cody seem like a Heel? Cody’s more fun as a Heel to me.
Tay Conti getting a title match against Serena Deeb is great stuff, but I can’t be sure the NWA Women’s Championship changes hands outside of the NWA. It’d be quite the surprise, but unless AEW stars start showing up on NWA, I’m not sure it’d do much for either company. Shida VS Abadon was a very good match, especially on character. Abadon could probably scare The Fiend. She scares me, that’s for sure. But Shida retains to keep going strong, and at this rate, it feels like it’ll either be Britt Baker or Nyla Rose that takes the title from her.
Moxley had a great promo warning Omega, and it should’ve been obvious he’d try to follow through tonight, since he literally said he does what he says he will. The overly elaborate introductions for Omega are getting better in my opinion, and I like that Jericho popped for when Winnipeg was mentioned. Omega VS Fenix was an incredible match, practically PPV levels, and of course Omega wins because the story is only just beginning. The Good Brothers being the first Impact stars to show up on AEW was a great surprise, and them going after Moxley, then helping Omega fight off basically every AEW Dark regular was great.
The big shock was the Bucks showing up to then apparently side with Omega! Having crossovers and referencing the past is the power AEW has over WWE, because even though Jericho didn’t want to say Too Sweet or Bullet Club, the more knowledgeable fans know exactly what’s going on here. Now all we need is NJPW to get in the mix, and we can finally have that Bullet Club Civil War we should’ve gotten back in 2019 when all this AEW talk got started.
My Score: 9.6/10

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 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!

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! Boulder makes sure his arms are working, and Luchasaurus seems to be alright after that crash landing. Tag to Bronson, the bears mug JB, and Bronson drags JB up to DECK him! JB gets to a corner, Bronson storms over but JB kicks back from below. Bronson blocks a kick to rain down furious fists! Bronson lets off as the ref counts, and he drags JB up. JB SLAPS Bronson, CHOPS him, but Bronson HEADBUTTS JB down! Cover, TWO! Bronson grows frustrated but he stalks JB and keeps him from Luchasaurus.
Bronson whips JB to CLOBBER him! Tag to Boulder, Bronson stands on JB and then Boulder steps on him! Boulder drags JB up, scoops him, and hits a BACKBREAKER! JB writhes but he still reaches for Luchasaurus. Boulder stands on JB’s head, lets off as the ref counts, then drops a big elbow on the back! Boulder drags JB up, puts him in a corner and whips him corner to corner to then back drop on the rebound! AEW returns to single picture as Boulder drags JB up and tags Bronson in. Bear Country mugs JB, then Bronson whips JB into the corner. JB BOOTS back, fights out and slides under but Boulder tags in!
Bronson keeps JB from Luchasaurus, Bear Country double suplexes, but JB lands on his feet! JB dodges and hot tags Luchasaurus! Luchasaurus rallies with big shoulders, BOOTS Boulder then BOOTS him in the corner! Luchasaurus adds Bronson to the pile to fire off hands! GERMAN SUPLEX for Bronson, then Luchasaurus ducks the running knee to kip up and TAIL WHIP! LARIAT! Fans fire up with Luchasaurus and he waits for Boulder to get up.

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 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! The Hardy Family Office is here and they mug Darby on behalf of Hardy himself! Bunny Allie says commentary needs to get their stuff off the table because they’re going to use it!

Tay tackles her on the stage and rains down fury! The refs hurry to break this up because this needs to happen in the ring! Will Tay tear into Bunny on behalf of Darby and the Dark Order?
AEW returns with a backstage interview with Chris Jericho.
Marvez brings up the huge news that Blood & Guts is happening on May 5th! Jericho tells Alex Marvez he’s more handsome than usual. What’s he doing that’s new? But then MJF blindsides Jericho, and the Pinnacle join in! FTR, Shawn Spears, and Wardlow shove Jericho towards gorilla and then the stage! Where is the Inner Circle!? MJF chokes Jericho with his scarf! FTR gets Jericho up for the MIND BREAKER!! Marvez signals to cameras, and the Inner Circle door has been bolted shut! The Inner Circle literally bust through the door to get free! But the Pinnacle keeps mugging Jericho and they get a table!
Spears brings the table to the apron, Wardlow reels Jericho in, but here comes IRON MIKE TYSON!! Tyson and Jericho may not be friends, but Tyson isn’t going to let a group of thugs brutalize Jericho! Thyson fires off on Spears! He rains down fury like in his prime! FTR saves Spears, the Inner Circle rushes to even things up!! The Pinnacle goes running now, and fans are fired up for Tyson standing with the Inner Circle! Is the Baddest Man on the Planet really on Jericho’s side? They shake hands! Jericho and Tyson let bygones be bygones, and Tyson says “up yours” to MJF! Will Iron Mike help the Inner Circle get ready for Blood & Guts?
Schiavone interviews Britt Baker (and Rebel) backstage.
The Doctor has a special announcement, and a small request for Tony Khan. “Tony, give the people what they want already!” A championship match for The Doctor! But she’s ranked fourth, there are others ahead of her. Yeah, let’s talk about those rankings. The win-loss system is UTTER CRAP! Championship opportunities should be based on star power, merchandise sales, and the demographic scores, which Britt is at the top of the food chain. It’s not her fault she had to waste a year putting respect on the women’s division and make history. But like a true Role Model, she will fix the broken system, climb up the rankings, and pretend like it actually matters.
So make sure to tune into Dynamite, Dark and Elevation where you will see The Doctor getting those wins up. Signed yours truly, Britt Baker DMD. Will Britt “expose” the AEW system for what it is?
The Bunny w/ The Hardy Family Office VS Tay Conti w/ The Dark Order!
Things may have calmed down from that brawl earlier, but there’s madness just below the surface when it comes to Allie the Bunny. But to counter the HFO being ringside, the Brazilian Blackbelt has not only the Dark Order’s Preston Vance, Evil Uno, Stu Grayson and Negative One, but she has Hikaru Shida with her! Will the Numbers game be in Tay’s favor?
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

And this guy will be perfect! They can mold him into something hot, sexy, beautiful, bold, supple! Amazing! JD likes that word but what does “supple” mean? Nemeth says they aren’t going to change who he is, they accept him for who he is, but- JD says he may speak slow with an accent, but he’s not an idiot. These are sounding like fat jokes.
Nemeth says it’s just about going from having the rugged beard to a nice mustache, or bleaching his hair and styling it. Just something to make him sexier. What’s sexier than a hard-working, blue collar badass? Well, we’ll see. Wingmen on three. One, two… Okay only Nemeth is into it, that’s fine.

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

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