The teams sort out and Cody starts with Shaq! The fans rally already as the two circle. Cody fires himself up and ties up with Shaq. Cody wrenches but Shaq SHOVES him down! Shaq double guns but Cody gets up to his feet. Fans rally and duel, Shaq encourages them to get louder, and things circle. Shaq shows off some rope a dope, then ties up with Cody again.

Shaq CLUBS Cody, whips him and back drops him high and hard! Shaq has Cody in the corner and CHOPS him again! And KNEES him low and hard!

Cody staggers to the other corner, fans rally and duel more, and Shaq CHOPS him again! Cody ends up in the corner, Jade tags in! Velvet steps in, and the two stare down. Jade kicks Velvet low, whips her to a corner, but Velvet goes up and over and builds speed, only to run into a fireman’s carry! Velvet fights out with elbows, waistlocks, but Jade bucks her away. Jade BOOTS Velvet down, then shows off the fight pose. Velvet staggers to a corner, Jade runs in but Velvet bobs ‘n’ weaves to kick and HEEL KICK! Velvet forearms but Jade ROCLS Velvet, TOSSES her, then chokes her in the corner! The ref counts, Jade lets off, then TOSSES Velvet across the way!

Fans fire up and duel as Jade shows off by doing push-ups. Jade storms over to Velvet, whips her corner to corner hard, then soaks up some heat.

Shaq lets off, but Velvet SUPER MOONSAULTS onto everyone else!! Fans are fired up and Velvet stirs it up!

Jade gets in the ring, Velvet pursues, and she brings Jade up to ROCK her with forearms! Velvet whips, Jade reverses and kicks low to trip Velvet up. Jade hooks up the legs for a FIGURE FOUR! Velvet endures as Jade flexes and copies Cody. But Velvet turns it over onto Jade! Jade endures now, powers it back and pushes up, then blows a kiss to Cody. Velvet endures so Jade lets Velvet free to bring her up. Velvet throws body shots but Jade sweeps the legs! Jade goes out side, and starts looking under the ring! Jade brings out a TABLE! But this isn’t No Disqualifications! The ref and Shaq argue, Jade sets the table up, but Arn and the ref shout at her to stop.

Velvet goes out after Jade and clubs her! And bumps her off the table, to then put her in the ring! Velvet moves the table further from the ring, to bring out a second table!

Jade stands tall but Shaq looks out cold from crashing through the hardwood! Will Shaq be alright after his AEW debut? Is this win just the first of many for Jade?

 

AEW medics take care of Shaq.

They get him on a gurney, load him into an ambulance, and take him to local facility. Tony Schiavone wants a quick word, but… Where did Shaq go? Is Shaq magic?!

The Inner Circle heads to the ring!

The dastardly duo of Chris Jericho & MJF are here for a press conference to supposedly answer for everything they did to the Young Bucks’ father last week. Fans sing Judas for Jericho and AEW goes to break.

AEW returns and Dasha is at the official podium as MJF and Jericho take their seats. The first question is from Barstool Sports, and is about what the AEW World Tag Team Championships mean to Y2MJF. Jericho says that everyone knows he is LE CHAMPION! That isn’t just a nickname, t’s the truth! But it’s been one year since he lost the AEW World Championship, so it’s time he has a title again! But with all the accolades he has, the greatness he has, he is a seven-time world tag team champion! SEVEN! With some of the biggest names in the industry, including Dwayne Johnson and Paul Wight! But none of them are better than MJF! And it is time for them to beat the hell out of the Young Bucks, just like they did to their stupid father!!

The second question is from Conrad Thompson of Grilling JR. The fighting is over, what are the odds of letting Sammy Guevara back into the Inner Circle? MJF can’t believe “turkey tits” here just asked that. Jericho said he never wanted to hear that name again, so get out of here! Go back to Nebraska! Next question! Brandon Walker of Barstool Sports ask why they attacked Papa Buck. Why? MJF is so sick of the shmucks out there making Papa Buck out to be a martyr! He attacked Jericho first! He did! So what they did was self-defense! But the worst part is that “that old worthless sack of crap” got his blood on MJF’s custom suit!

MJF knows most people can’t comprehend how expensive that is, but to put it in ways they can, he doesn’t shop at Target and Baby Gap! And if you thought what they did to Papa was bad, just wait until they get their hands on “Malnourished Matt” and “Not so Slick, I wish my hair was way more thick Nick!” But hey, it wasn’t their idea to attack Papa Buck, no. Did the Bucks think it was that smart to bring their bitch-ass pops down here? Especially knowing there isn’t a line that the Inner Circle wouldn’t cross? The Bucks need to do better. NEXT!

And it’s Eric Bischoff from 83 Weeks. His question is two parts, and he’ll direct the first part to Jericho. Do they know the condition of Papa Buck? And in Jericho’s list of stupid ideas, where does motivating the Bucks to come at you with a vengeance rank? Just curious. Jericho tells “Eric B” to shut his mouth! And second, they don’t know the condition of Papa Buck and they don’t care! As far as Matt & Nick go- They’re here! Matt & Nick step out on stage and glare at the Inner Circle. Nick knew that once this got started, the Inner Circle “pricks” would hurt their friends. But hurting their father makes this thing personal!

Matt says that their dad is the greatest dad in the world! He taught them everything they needed to know to be the men they are today! Being compassionate, have faith, love your family! They love their family! Papa Buck did everything that MJF’s and Jericho’s dads apparently failed at with them! Papa Buck taught them to dream big, and when he couldn’t afford to put them through college, he built them their own wrestling ring with his bare hands! Papa Buck taught them not to just stand idly by and let someone else do the work. You do it yourself! That DIY spirit is what created the Young Bucks, Being the Elite, and ALL ELITE WRESTLING! Without Papa Buck, there would be no Young Bucks or an AEW!

Laugh now, but do you know what that means? Then that means MJF is still at home, unemployed, on call with the Rosie O’Donnell Show! And for Jericho, let’s be honest! He’d be jerking the curtain at “the Performance Center.” Because Papa Buck taught them empathy, faith, family and one other thing! Stand up for yourselves and maybe kick some ass! DOUBLE SUPERKICKS for tY2MJF! Things bust off with the Inner Circle but Brandon Cutler gets in! Referees rush out to stop this but that’s easier said than done! Wardlow tackles Cutler, Matt SUPERKICKS Santana and Nick tosses Ortiz! The Good Brothers are here to help out! They have tables set up and Nick ROCKS Ortiz!

Matt heads over, dares someone else to come get them, and Nick puts Ortiz on a table. Karl Anderson keeps Ortiz down while Nick climbs up! Nick aims from above the tunnel, and Matt has Santana off the stage! 450 AND MACHO ELBOWS through tables!! The Bucks are fired up and Y2MJF look worried, as they should! Will Matt & Nick teach Jericho & MJF what happens when real men fight back?

 

AEW profiles what it means to have an “Exploding Barbed Wire Death Match.”

America hasn’t seen something like this in 25 years! Once you hit the barbed wire ropes and trigger the switches, there WILL be explosions! Not only that, but the barbed wire will cut you up mercilessly! This will be something to remember for a long, long time because of the violence, the unknown, and the two men in it. Atsuhi Onita says the rules here are fitting for Moxley and Omega. It is unpredictable, dangerous, and painful. But Moxley’s honor won’t let him do any less to take Omega out or be forced into retirement trying. Will the Maniac take back what the Cleaner stole from him? Or will he give up everything in return?

 

Six Man Tag: Jurassic Express VS FTR & Tully Blanchard w/ JJ Dylan!

Cash Wheeler & Dax Harwood are more than honored to have a legendary tag team wrestler come out of retirement for one night and join them in battle! But will it also be the end of them as Jungle Boy, Luchasaurus & Marko Stunt are coming #ForTheirRevenge?

AEW returns and Jurassic Express make their entrance. The trios sort out, Tully starts with Stunt and they tie up. Tully puts Stun in the corner, fires off body shots and knees, then tags in Dax. Stunt slips away, Jurassic Express back him up, and they stare FTullyR down! Stunt swipes at Cash but everyone cools off. Jungle Boy tags in, he and Dax tie up as a return from their great singles showdown. Dax puts JB in a corner, the ref calls for a break but Dax throws body shots and CHOPS!

JB survives the classic SHOE screw job! Fans fire up, Dax bumps JB off buckles and tags in Tully. They mug JB, Tully CHOPS JB and JB bails out.

Dax drags JB by his hair, CLUBS him on his back, then paces about. Tully stands on JB’s hair out of the ref’s sight!

Dax drags JB up, snapmares him and wraps on a chinlock. Dax grinds JB down and thrashes him around into a stretch. Dax fish hooks JB’s face, the ref reprimands, so Dax jams an elbow into JB”s face! Dax clamps onto JB’s face again with a smothering chinlock! JB endures as Dax grinds his forearm in over an dover, but the ref reprimands. Dax lets off, taunts Stunt, but the ref keeps Stunt out. Dax puts JB in a corner and CHOPS him! AEW returns to single picture as the CHOPS fly, and JB hits a BIG back suplex! Both men are down, fans rally up, Cash tags in to intercept JB! Cash scoops and RAMS JB into a corner, to then SLAM him down!

Cash hops up and leaps, but the Vader Bomb gets BOOTS! JB is down, as is Cash, and fans rally as they crawl! Hot tags to Dax and LUCHASAURUS!

One way or another, the returning legend gets a win alongside the self-professed best tag team ever! And speaking of all that controversy, the man in the beanie was SHAWN SPEARS! The Chair Man returns, and is now on the team! Coach Arn is watching from the tunnel, and says he’s seeing this foursome. Is this a revival of the Horsemen?

 

Tony Schiavone is on stage with big news!

AEW is expanding and now has a third show of in-ring programming: Dark Elevation! And his cohost for that will be… THE GIANT, PAUL WIGHT! #NoMoreBS, but definitely big things for AEW! Schiavone is glad to have “G” here, and the fans are loving this! Did anyone see this turn coming? But that aside, Schiavone’s known Wight since he had long hair and a bright future. Wight is so happy to be in AEW. Fans chant “Welcome Home!” and Wight is definitely glad to be back on TNT. He is looking forward to working with the talent in AEW, and cohosting Elevation with Schiavone. There, Wight can do color commentary on the amazing and young talent!

But don’t worry, Wight will take this job seriously, too. He has a scoop! The biggest scoop EVER! Oh? This Sunday, AEW Revolution, they will hire and put under contract a Hall of Fame talent that will be a HUGE asset to AEW! But it’s not who you think. You’ll find out and Wight wants us to know you heard it here first! Who could Wight be suggesting?

 

AEW Women’s World Title Eliminator Tournament Finals: Nyla Rose w/ Vickie Guerrero VS Ryo Mizunami!

Two hard hitting wrestlers had hard fought roads to this moment! The Native Beast beat the Brazilian Blackbelt, the Doctor and the former NWA Women’s World Champion, while Aneki defeated “Fallen Idol” Maki Itoh, THE Aja Kong, and “Magical Girl” Yuka Sakazaki! The Full Metal Warrior, Hikaru Shida, is watching this one very closely, but which familiar foe will she be facing at Revolution?

The bell rings and the two circle as fans fire up. Ryo is fired up already but Nyla just doesn’t seem to get what’s going on with her.

AEW returns with Schiavone back in the ring.

The Street Fight at Revolution is coming, so Schiavone introduces… STIIIIING~! The snow, the crow and the Icon! Sting walks out and fans are fired up to see him. Schiavone says Sting came back with Darby Allin last week to take the fight back to Team Taz. Sting has never looked better, and Sting says it’s great Schiavone says that. It evolves every single week, but then Sting found out a couple weeks ago he wasn’t when he got powerbomb’d by Cage! But Sting thanks The Machine for shaking off that rust! Sting feels like he’s ready for that Street Fight!

But then Ricky Starks comes out to tell “Stinger Man” to pump the brakes. He’s here on his own, so don’t worry about an attack. Starks is sick of the “Budding romance.” We’ve seen things go back and forth, but Sting showed something Starks hadn’t seen. Sting tore it up, and Starks is man enough to admit he saw something he hadn’t seen, and that was the fire! Sting’s still got it! But even so, Starks still doesn’t see the Icon. He SLAPS Sting, so Sting DECKS Starks! Sting rips Starks’ shirt off and whips him out of his shoes to CLOBBER him! Starks flounders, Sting is on him for another whip! STINGER SPLASH!

The Icon and the Relentless run off Team Taz, but what happens when things are finally unleashed for the Street Fight!?

 

Face of the Revolution Ladder Match Qualifier: Preston Vance w/ The Dark Order VS Max Caster!

Number 10 surely heard Platinum’s diss track just for him, and now it’s time for him to respond directly! Scorpio Sky also watches from commentary to see who joins him, Cody Rhodes, Lance Archer and, if he is medically cleared, Penta El Zero M at Revolution! But first, Platinum gives us a special bonus track on Preston! “Listen! Listen! This guy’s big but a small talker. I shoot you up like Lady Gaga’s dog walker! This dude is mad soft, there is no future if you take your mask off! His names 10 but a 5 in the looks department. Like the fireball just hit Ronnie Garvin! Now you gettin’ burnt up! Platinum Max, I got this place turnt up!”

He ain’t done spittin’! Negative One ’bout to catch a butt whippin’! See Max in the streets- Negative One is fired up and Vance holds him back. Caster skips the rest and that was for the best, but who will get this won and head for Revolution?

The bell rings, Caster and Vance circle as fans rally. They tie up, Vance rolls Caster up, TWO! Caster scrambles away and tries to mock Vance still. Caster calls for a test of strength but kicks low. Caster clamps onto an arm, Vance powers out but Caster runs Vance over! Scorpio runs both guys down as being less skilled wrestlers, Caster runs but Vance goes to hip toss. Caster blocks but Vance blocks back to CLOBBER Caster! Cover, TWO! Vance drags Caster up, headlocks, but Caster powers out. Vance runs Caster over, things speed up, and Vance crossbodies! Cover, TWO! Vance keeps on Caster and hauls Caster up, but Caster gets away to a corner.

Vance CHOPS Caster, keeps him close and climbs up to rain down punches! Fans count and Vance gets only 4 before Caster slips out. Caster runs, only gets buckles, and Vance finishes the punches to get 10! Vance has fans fired up, runs in and CLOBBERS Caster out of the ring! Fans rally while Scorpio continues to talk trash on even Cody Rhodes and Lance Archer. Vance bumps Caster off the apron, then again, then runs in, only for Caster to POST him! Caster runs in to dropkick Vance into barriers!

AEW goes picture in picture as Caster mugs Vance and puts him in the ring. Cover, TWO! Caster grows annoyed, but he clamps onto an arm to grind Vance down. Vance fights up but Caster wrangles him down with a wristlock! Vance grinds forearms in Caster’s face but Caster holds on to drag Vance up again. Caster wrenches, yanks the arm, then whips Vance, only for Vance to reverse. Caster slips off the spinebuster and CLUBS Vance down! Caster pulls on the arm, hammerlocks it, and locks it down to taunt and KNEE Vance! Vance gets to a corner, Caster wraps the bad arm around ropes and pulls! The ref counts, Caster lets off at 4, and he goes after Vance in another corner.

Caster lets off just long enough to SNAP BRAINBUSTER Vance! Caster goes up top as Scorpio says that’s dumb, and Vance avoids the Mic Drop Elbow! Vance and Caster slowly rise again, and Vance runs in at the corner! Caster boots Vance, hops up, but Caster’s rana is blocked to a BOMB! Cover, ROPEBREAK!! Caster survives and Vance can’t believe it! “This is Awesome!” as Vance drags Caster. Caster kicks Vance away, then yanks him into ropes! Caster distracts the ref, and is that Jack Evans with Anthony Bowens’ boombox?! Evans CRACKS Vance with it!! Evans slithers under the ring, Caster covers Vance, Caster wins!!

Winner: Max Caster, by pinfall (advances to the Face of the Revolution Ladder Match)

Scorpio says Caster will just be disappointed now because he’s going to lose that Ladder match! But wait, Evans did that favor to Caster as a way to get paid by #BigMoneyMatt! A whopping $4200 for taking out Number 10 of the Dark Order! This is all because Hardy hates Hangman for pulling one over on him! Caster is fine with that, but will he benefit from all 4200 reasons he just won?

 

AEW has big things for Revolution Weekend!

First of all, AEW Dark has a special airing on Saturday to fit in all the action before the PPV! Then, a Buy-In match has been made! Britt Baker & Rebel will face Thunder Rosa & Riho! Will The Doctor and her assistant be able to beat a former NWA Women’s Champion and a former AEW Women’s Champion in one match?

 

Miro speaks.

The Best Man gave “Charles” Taylor a week, but he couldn’t even face Miro like a man! Miro is just trying to protect Chuck but now he has to hurt him! The people will now get what they want: DESTRUCTION! Miro is going to stop playing games, and it will be GAME OVER for Chuck!! Will the Best Man and Kip “Superbad” Sabian put a stop to all the fun the Best Friends are having?

 

Matt Hardy & Marq Quen VS Hangman Page & John Silver!

Before the Big Money bet, Hardy and his other Private Party protégé will take on the Cowboy and Number 3! But after what we just saw Hardy pay Evans to do to Number 10, will Hangman & Johnny Hungy eat Hardy and Quen alive?

The teams sort out, Silver and Quen start and circle. Fans rally, Silver shoots in to TOSS Quen, then he clamps on with a headlock. Quen gets the ropebreak, Silver lets up, and Quen powers Silver to the corner. Hardy steps back as Quen lets off for the new ropebreak, and Hardy gets a cheap shot in! Quen clubs away on Silver, kicks him to a corner, then wrenches him to tag Hardy in. Hardy Party mugs Silver, Hardy wrenches but Silver ROCKS him! Silver headlocks, Hardy throws body shots, and powers out. Hangman tags in, Hardy shoves Silver at him! Hangman and Silver hug it out and Hardy eggs Hangman on, only to tag Quen back in.

Quen and Hangman circle, Hangman dodges the clothesline to fire off haymakers! AEW goes picture in picture as Hangman stomps away in the corner!

The ref counts, Hangman lets off, and Hangman is fired up as he scrapes Quen on the ropes! Hangman whips, back drops Quen high and hard, then swings on Hardy! Hardy gets away, Hangman goes back to Quen and drags him up. Tag to Silver, they mug Quen, and Silver whips Quen to back drop him high and hard, too! Silver’s friggin’ jacked, baby! Silver drags Quen up and bumps him off buckles. Tag to Hangman, they double whip Quen but Quen kicks them back! Quen throws hands, runs, but into a DOUBLE BACK DROP that sends him flipping through the air! Quen flops to the apron and Hangman stalks over to bring him back in.

Hangman drags Quen up, CHOPS him off his feet, then drags him back up. Hangman snap suplexes, covers, TWO! Quen hurries to ropes but Hangman drags him back up. Tag to Silver, they mug Quen at ropes, and Silver throws big haymakers! Quen ends up in a corner, Silver fires off more shots, then he TOSSES Quen across the way! Silver flexes on Hardy, looms over Quen, and brings him up for forearms. AEW returns to single picture as Silver military presses Quen. Quen slips off and shoves Silver to the apron and fires off! Quen chokes Silver on the ropes, the ref counts, Quen lets off but Hardy hits an APRON SIDE EFFECT! Fans boo but Hardy gets away with that one.

Quen tags Hardy, Hardy drags Silver up and ROCKS him with a haymaker. Hardy bumps Silver off the apron, puts him back in and then covers, TWO! Hardy rains down rights, drags Silver up and puts him back in the corner. Quen tags in, they mug Silver with knees to his back, then stomps to his front! Quen digs his boots in, the ref counts and Quen lets off. Quen flexes now then drags Silver up to scoop and SLAM! Tag to Hardy, he hops up and soaks up the heat before he jumps, into Silver’s KICK! Both Silver and Hardy are down, crawling, and Hardy tries to keep Silver from Hangman. Silver BOOTS Hardy away, and reaches out!

Hardy drags Silver away again, but Silver gets around to hit a STANDING SLICED BREAD! Hot tags to Hangman and Quen! Hangman rallies on Quen with big forearms! Hangman whips, Quen dodges but Quen runs into a POP-UP SPINEBSUTER! Hangman runs at Hardy but Hardy avoids the boot! Hangman drags Quen up, Quen kicks a leg and whips Hangman to the corner! Hardy holds Hangman but Hangman gets away as Quen runs in, and the BOOT hits Hardy! Hangman scoops Quen for a FALL AWAY SLAM! Hangman kips up and PLANCHAS Hardy down! Hangman rains down rights, puts Hardy in the ring, but Quen is after Hangman with stomps!

Fans boo but Quen pie faces Hangman, only to run into a fireman’s carry, DEATH VALLEY DRIVER! Fans fire up as Hangman drags Quen back up and throws him to the corner. Hangman dares Hardy to man up and tag in, but Quen bails out to regroup with Hardy instead. Hardy puts Quen back in, but Hangman kicks and suplexes him. Quen slips out to dropkick Hangman’s leg! NOW Hardy wants in, so Quen tags him! Hardy hits Hangman with a neckbreaker! Hardy calls for his finish, kicks but Hangman slips out to back suplex! Quen runs in but Hangman dumps him out! Silver tags in and he SPEARS Hardy!

Silver fires off furious fists, but Hardy hits a Twist, only for Silver to backslide! Hardy rolls off, but Silver kicks, KICKS, SUPERKICKS and BRAINBUSTERS!! Cover, TWO!! Silver’s Beaver Boy Blitz couldn’t finish this! Quen trips Hangman off the apron, hotshots Silver, and Hardy hits a back suplex! Tag to Quen, Quen climbs up, Silver stands up to get the MISSILE DROPKICK! Quen gets up, runs in but Silver OBOTS! Hangman tags in, Silver is the decoy and he KICKS Quen to send into Hangman’s ROLLING ELBOW! Silver ENZIGURIS, Hangman POP-UP POWERBOMBS Quen!

Silver reels Quen in to wheelbarrow, GERMAN SUPLEX, to the BUCK SHOT!! Hangman stares Hardy down and Hardy backs off! Cover, Hangman & Silver win!

Winners: Hangman Page & John Silver

But Hardy is a sore loser and he assaults the winners with a mic! Hardy tells Hangman that he hates him, and in their Big Money Match, Hardy will take everything from Hangman! This was all just a trap! Hardy is going to make it so Hangman won’t even make it to Revolution! But here comes the rest of the Dark Order to attack Hardy! Maybe Hardy is the one who won’t make it to the PPV! But here come the Casino Battle Royal field! Butcher and Blade, Chaos Project, Cezar Bononi & “Pretty” Peter Avalon attack the Dark Order, but then they’re countered by Bear Country, the Varsity Blondes, the Natural Nightmares, the Sydal Brothers and SCU!! It is tag team turmoil in the ring to say the least, and Negative One is just reveling in it from the stage!

BUT HERE COMES DEATH TRIANGLE!! PAC & Fenix are last minute entries in that match and they want to get their shots in! Hardy tries to run away but Negative One tells him he’s in for a bad time on Sunday! Will Hangman be the one to bankrupt Big Money Matt after the Revolution?


My Thoughts:

An awesome episode for AEW, and even a great go-home. I didn’t think we’d open with the Mixed Tag, but Shaq was great, of course Jade was good, and though Shaq took that table spot, it makes sense for his team to win. Jade has been waiting a long time for this debut so it makes sense for her to win and start her career off strong. Shaq’s disappearing act was interesting, I have no idea what that could mean. We got a great Six Man out of FTR and Jurassic Express, but I should’ve figured FTR finds a way to cheat and win. Shawn Spears being part of that is a natural move, and it just makes sense that he is part of their faction now. I don’t know if “FTR” will be the name that applies to the group or if they’ll have some new name, but it’s about time this happened.

Nyla VS Ryo was a great match, and I am happily surprised that Ryo won. As great in story it would’ve been for Nyla and Shida to have a rematch from Double or Nothing, I feel like it is much better for everyone watching to see Shida VS Ryo, which we certainly haven’t seen in AEW and hasn’t happened in some time. With that match up, I feel like the title match could go either way. If Ryo wins, that’d freshen up some things, even though Shida hasn’t faced everyone yet. Nyla is still considered top ranked contender, so she could still face the winner from Revolution over the Summer, and we could even work our way to Shida VS Nyla at Double or Nothing 2021, almost one year after the previous match-up.

Sting and Darby had another short spot with Team Taz, but I have no idea if it adds anything to what we’ve already seen. We got a great segment with the Inner Circle and Young Bucks, where another AEW press conference of course has Eric Bischoff for last. The Bucks had a great response promo and then a great double table spot. Maybe a little risky, but what else is new for these two? I feel like standing tall here could mean the Bucks lose, and that could also suggest who is coming out of the Casino Tag Battle Royal. PAC & Fenix win fast and then get in on the tag brawl at the end of the night. I don’t see them winning, but them getting in makes sense with Penta in the ladder match.

Speaking of, Caster VS Vance was a great match, but it makes a lot of sense in story for Vance to get screwed over by Hardy and Evans. I had a feeling the other night with Dark that Caster was going to win since Archer is already the powerhouse in that match. There is still one spot left, so either the bonus Dark gives us that qualifier, or that sixth person is the person Paul Wight introduces. That latter possibility would actually be pretty big, because Wight promises that will be a (WWE) Hall of Famer, someone everyone knows yet “not who we’d expect.” No idea who that could be, but I’d love to see them show up and do big things in the ladder match.

Meanwhile, Hardy loses the tag match tonight, but doesn’t stand tall even after he attacks, so the math makes me think Hangman loses his Q1 earnings. I feel like that’d work in story, because then Hangman can #JoinDarkOrder and lean on them for support. Hangman’s struggles have been great pacing in his AEW career, and maybe even his career as a whole, so giving up money to find the friendships that will really build him back up is a great element to that. With this, Hangman can totally become AEW World Champion come All Out 2021 or so.

My Score: 9.6/10

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!

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 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.

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?

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!

But Luchasaurus still gets the grip! Boulder HEADBUTTS Luchasaurus! Boulder gets a SUPERPLEX! Both men are down but the fans are fired up! Boulder covers, but JB FROG SPLASHES it apart! Bronson drags JB up to throw him out but JB shoulders back in! JB slingshots and spins around to DDT! JB baits Boulder into Luchasaurus’ EXTINCTION LEVEL EVENT! Cover, but Bronson scoops JB for a MICHINOKU DRIVER onto the pin! All four are down and the fans fire up again!

The teams regroup as fans chant “This is Awesome!” Bronson and Boulder combine, head for Luchasaurus, CANNON BEAR!! They drag Luchasaurus to a cover, TWO!! Luchasaurus survives and Boulder can’t believe it! Boulder is frustrated, but he tags Bronson in, and they decide to combine again! Boulder has Bronson on the Electric Chair, but Luchasaurus sits up! JB returns and he dropkicks Boulder’s legs out! Bronson drops into the TAIL WHIP!! Boulder BOOTS Luchasaurus, grabs JB and whips, but JB LARIATS on the return! Luchasaurus pushes Boulder out! Bronson staggers into a choke grip, and the CHOKE SLAM! MESOZOIC MOONSAULT! Cover, Jurassic Express wins!

Winners: Jurassic Express, by pinfall

Who needs Godzilla VS Kong? This was a true clash of alpha titans! Will Jurassic Express now pull into the top spot right behind Death Triangle?

 

AEW hears from QT Marshall.

In reference to Cody Rhodes, “Your mantra should be, ‘Do the work for me.‘ Whether it’s creating this incredible training facility, or carrying your broken down brother through whatever career he had left, ever since the beginning of our ‘friendship,’ all I’ve ever done is do work for you.” QT is sick of the narrative Cody is creating about how he was going out of his way to help QT, but leaving QT dead in the water before he ever got started. Cody wants to doubt QT Marshall’s credentials? Let’s talk about those credentials for a minute. Cody was second fiddle to Ted (DeBiase) Jr, then went hiding behind face paint because even as “Dusty’s kid,” he knew he’d never amount to shit.

But Cody “figured it out” at some point. He got on the indies, surrounded himself with “vanilla midgets,” and felt like the star he knew he’d never be. But QT has surrounded himself with men. Hungry, sick and tired of waiting in the shadows, and that can trust QT and QT can trust back. Because unlike “Bargain Brand Sting,” QT isn’t worried about other people’s success. Aaron Solow, “who will never be known as ‘just somebody’s boyfriend.'” Nick Comoroto, who isn’t just some “body guy.” And Anthony Ogogo, who is a household name in the UK! A mainstream fighter and star! The British follow his career and cheer every punch. Ogogo does Subway commercials for business and knocks people out for fun!

But this ain’t Great Britain, this is “Shitty” America! So all you Yanks are gonna learn soon enough who Ogogo is. QT tells Cody that this is HIS goddamn factory now! Comoroto splashes the Nightmare Factory logo on the wall with blue paint, and this fearsome foursome has left its mark! Will others join them? Or will they simply know not to side with The Prince of Pro-Wrestling?

 

AEW returns with Schiavone on stage.

This never gets old for Tony. Once again on Dynamite, “It’s STIIIIIIIING~!” The snow, the crow and the Icon! A lot to unpack with the TNT Championship coming up, but Jake the Snake interrupts. “This is not the way we do it. You remember! How can you forget? It’s only been what? Seven days?” They start, Snake and Archer interrupt, Sting does nothing and keeps his mouth shut, or maybe just shuts his hole. Where’s his little gerbil friend, by the way? Yes, he’s a gerbil. But they say insanity is doing the same thing over and expecting a different result, and Snake is a crazy son of a bitch so he should know!

But Archer interrupts now and says this is enough. If that’s insanity, then Snake isn’t the only crazy one, Archer’s “one sick son of a bitch!” And Archer is sick and tired of the AEW agenda! Bring Archer in, bring him to the top, but then send him away. He fights Moxley, then goes away. He works main event after main event, then he goes away. He’s done with that! The world will pay attention to the Murderhawk Monster, and Sting will pay attention closely. This is Archer’s time! Archer should be getting the interviews! Sting doesn’t need to talk because this is Archer’s time! But then Sting snatches the mic away!

“Now it’s MY time!” Then say something! He’d say something if Archer would be slow to speak and quick to listening. Zip up and understand that Sting AGREES! Archer is a main event guy, but then he disappears, and Sting doesn’t understand it, either! Snake, what’s wrong with you? What’s that dumbfounded face for? Tell Archer how to do it! Or maybe just shut your hole now. Sting says Archer IS main event material, he has “it,” but Snake needs to actually help him! Help Archer channel this in the right direction and then he will be in that ring on TNT in a main event, maybe even for the world title, without disappearances. Just make it happen! Make it showtime! If you’ve got it in you, go do it!

Sting storms off, but All Ego, Ethan Page, and the Face of the Revolution, Scorpio Sky, are watching from the bleachers. They don’t seem to see it Sting’s way, but what is Archer’s response? Archer storms off, too, with Snake following. With Ethan and Scorpio have their own input on this?

 

Team Taz speaks.

But before Taz himself can say anything, Ricky Starks speaks up and wants to start by saying AEW Dark was great! They got the win thank to Brian Cage! And as the winner, let’s hear from Cage! Taz speaks up and says no, not this time. Starks instigated, he isn’t going to get away with it this week. Will Hobbs wants to say something but Taz already knows what he’ll say. Everyone just needs to chill out, get on the same page. Starks, stop instigating. But they’ve got to be real smart, because they’ve got an offer to a real blue chipper in Christian Cage. That could happen! Starks says absolutely. But will they be able to handle having two Cages on the same team? Or will they end up with no Cages in no time?

 

AEW TNT Championship: Darby Allin w/ Sting VS JD Drake w/ Ryan Nemeth & Cezar Bononi!

The Relentless wants to be a fighting champion, and another rising star answered the call! Will the Blue Collar Badass prove that even a rugged mug like his can be the Face of the Network? Or will the Icon prove to be a superior wingman to the Hollywood Hunk and the Beautiful Brazilian Beefcake?

The introductions are made, the title is raised, and the fighting champion is in for a fight!

Darby and JD stare down as fans fire up and rally. They circle, tie up, and JD puts Darby in a corner. The ref counts, Darby ducks a chop and then ducks again. Darby headlocks, JB powers up to throw him to a corner. Darby boots the chop away, shoves JD but JD goes up and over to CHOP him! Darby bails out, fans fire up, and a ring count begins. JD dares Darby to get back in and Darby is on the apron. Darby pie faces JD then dares him to bring it to the outside. JD takes the bait, Darby gets in then WRECKS JD with a dropkick! Darby runs to DIVE and ram JD into railing! Darby gets up top, Nemeth distracts everyone, and Darby leaps, but JD bounces him off his shoulder!

Nemeth laughs at Darby while JD drags him up, but Sting is there to scare Nemeth away! JD puts Darby in to drop a  BIG back senton! Sting keeps backing Nemeth all they way to the timekeeper’s table and further away! JD ROCKS Darby, Nemeth keeps running, and JD CHOPS away on Darby! Bononi is still in JD’s corner as JD drops knees then covers, ONE!! Darby sputters but JD brings him up. Darby throws body shots but JD scoops and SLAMS to then drop a headbutt! Cover, TWO!, and AEW goes picture in picture.

JD stalks Darby, drags him up, chokes him on the ropes, but lets off as the ref counts. JD waits for Darby to get up, then brings him around to ROCK him with a right! Darby ends up in a corner, JD CHOPS him, then lets him feel it for a moment. Darby gets up, SLAPS JD, but JD SLAPS Darby back! JD whips Darby, LARIATS him inside out, then covers, TWO! Darby survives but JD wraps on a chinlock! JD grinds Darby down into the mat, but Darby fights his way up. Darby throws body shots, but JD back suplexes high and hard! JD drags Darby up the corner with him, but Darby SLAPS JD! And back hands and SLAPS and SLAPS and SLAPS!

Darby climbs up, fires off more SLAPS, then haymakers! JD shoves Darby away and hits a FLYING LEG LARIAT! Cover, TWO! Darby survives, JD grows frustrated, but JD steps on Darby as he goes to the corner. AEW returns to single picture as Darby bails out. JD pursues, stalks Darby, and he brings Darby around but Darby throws body shots! Darby throws a forearm but JD tosses him into ropes to CLOBBER him! JD shouts, “Tonight’s MY night!” Darby crawls, Bononi cheers JD on, and JD refreshes the ring count to then aim at Darby near the railings. JD runs in and CANNONBALLS but only into railing as Darby dodges!

Darby gets to the ring, gets up the corner, and he LEAPS onto both Bononi and JD! Darby gets back in the ring as fans are fired up for “A E DUB!” The ring count is 5 of 10 but JD gets in! Darby clubs away on JD with furious fists, then goes up the corner. JD trips Darby up! JD gets Darby in the Tree of Woe to KICK, CLUB and then sit him up by his chin. Darby SLAPS JD, but JD sits Darby up to CHOP him on the back! Darby is back in the Tree of Woe, JD runs and CANNONBALLS Darby down! JD goes up top fast, VADER BOMB! Cover, TWO!! Darby survives and JD is shocked! Fans fire up, JD drags Darby back to the drop zone and goes back up top. MOONSAULT FLOPS!

Darby is in the corner, he climbs back up but JD ROCKS him first! JD climbs up now, but Darby SLAPS him! JD SLAPS, it’s a SLAP fight up top! But then Darby grabs a hand to BITE it, and hits a SUPER CODE RED!! JD is in a drop zone, Darby goes up top, COFFIN DROP!! Cover, Darby wins!

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

The Relentless is still champion, still Face of the Network, and still on a hot win streak! But then THE BUTCHER clobbers Darby! The Hardy Family Office is here and they mug Darby on behalf of Hardy himself! Bunny Allie says commentary needs to get their stuff off the table because they’re going to use it! But then Sting and the Dark Order are here to run HFO off! Bunny is furious, but she’s gotta face Tay Conti in the ring now! Is she reconsidering given the HFO ran off? Too late! Tay tackles her on the stage and rains down fury! The refs hurry to break this up because this needs to happen in the ring! Will Tay tear into Bunny on behalf of Darby and the Dark Order?

 

AEW returns with a backstage interview with Chris Jericho.

Marvez brings up the huge news that Blood & Guts is happening on May 5th! Jericho tells Alex Marvez he’s more handsome than usual. What’s he doing that’s new? But then MJF blindsides Jericho, and the Pinnacle join in! FTR, Shawn Spears, and Wardlow shove Jericho towards gorilla and then the stage! Where is the Inner Circle!? MJF chokes Jericho with his scarf! FTR gets Jericho up for the MIND BREAKER!! Marvez signals to cameras, and the Inner Circle door has been bolted shut! The Inner Circle literally bust through the door to get free! But the Pinnacle keeps mugging Jericho and they get a table!

Spears brings the table to the apron, Wardlow reels Jericho in, but here comes IRON MIKE TYSON!! Tyson and Jericho may not be friends, but Tyson isn’t going to let a group of thugs brutalize Jericho! Thyson fires off on Spears! He rains down fury like in his prime! FTR saves Spears, the Inner Circle rushes to even things up!! The Pinnacle goes running now, and fans are fired up for Tyson standing with the Inner Circle! Is the Baddest Man on the Planet really on Jericho’s side? They shake hands! Jericho and Tyson let bygones be bygones, and Tyson says “up yours” to MJF! Will Iron Mike help the Inner Circle get ready for Blood & Guts?

 

Schiavone interviews Britt Baker (and Rebel) backstage.

The Doctor has a special announcement, and a small request for Tony Khan. “Tony, give the people what they want already!” A championship match for The Doctor! But she’s ranked fourth, there are others ahead of her. Yeah, let’s talk about those rankings. The win-loss system is UTTER CRAP! Championship opportunities should be based on star power, merchandise sales, and the demographic scores, which Britt is at the top of the food chain. It’s not her fault she had to waste a year putting respect on the women’s division and make history. But like a true Role Model, she will fix the broken system, climb up the rankings, and pretend like it actually matters.

So make sure to tune into Dynamite, Dark and Elevation where you will see The Doctor getting those wins up. Signed yours truly, Britt Baker DMD. Will Britt “expose” the AEW system for what it is?

 

The Bunny w/ The Hardy Family Office VS Tay Conti w/ The Dark Order!

Things may have calmed down from that brawl earlier, but there’s madness just below the surface when it comes to Allie the Bunny. But to counter the HFO being ringside, the Brazilian Blackbelt has not only the Dark Order’s Preston Vance, Evil Uno, Stu Grayson and Negative One, but she has Hikaru Shida with her! Will the Numbers game be in Tay’s favor?

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 bumps Tay off the apron, brings her back around and puts her into the ring. Bunny takes a moment to laugh like a hyena, and then she stomps Tay down. Bunny drags Tay up, talks trash and throws big knees into her! Bunny runs and knee lifts Tay down! Cover, TWO! Bunny gets frustrated already but she drags Tay up. Tay fires back with forearms and then reels Bunny into a cradle! TWO, and Bunny CLOBBERS Tay! Cover, TWO! Bunny is angry again but Tay reaches out for her friends. Bunny drags Tay around, looms over her, and brings her into the cobra camel clutch! Tay endures, Bunny thrashes her around, and AEW goes to break.

AEW returns as Tay throws Bunny around with drop sayanagis! Tay then gets Bunny up for the swinging BACKBREAKER! Bunny crawls to a corner, Tay runs in but the knee hits buckles! Tay hobbles into a SUPERKICK! Cover, TWO!! Shida and the Dark Order cheer Tay on but Bunny slaps some fire into herself. Bunny drags Tay up, brings her around, dragon sleepers but Tay fights free! Tay fires off forearms, Hardy gets on the apron and stands in Tay’s way! But Tay dodges Bunny, Bunny avoids running into Hardy, and Tay gets her for a Gory Especial, to the TAY K O!! Cover, TWO!?! 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?

The trios sort out, Karl Anderson starts with Matt and the fans rally on the Bucks’ side. Callis mocks Matt with how he slapped him and Matt did nothing about it. 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. Omega and Matt tie up, go around, and Omega pulls hair to put Matt on ropes. Matt turns it around, the ref counts, Matt lets off but Omega pie faces. Matt shoves, Omega shoves, things get tense and Matt backs away to tag in Nick. Nick and Omega circle now, and Nick tries to point out this is Callis’ fault.

Omega and Nick tie up, Nick wrenches, Omega wrenches back, but Nick rolls and handsprings to WRING him out! Omega boots Nick away, gets up to headlock but Nick powers out. Omega gets the headlock again, Nick powers out again, but Omega runs him over! Nick gets up and Omega double guns at him. They tie up again, Nick headlocks but Omega powers out.

Moxley builds speed, TOPE AND DOUBLE PLANCHAS! Fans are thunderous as Moxley and the Bucks regroup and AEW goes picture in picture!

Moxley and the Bucks stand down, Nick fetches Anderson into the ring, and Nick wrenches then tags Matt. Matt goes up to drop ax handles on Anderson’s arm. Matt wrenches the arm again and again and then tags in Moxley. Moxley climbs up to drop an ax handle on the arm. Moxley drags Anderson up to wrench, snapmare and PENALTY KICK! Moxley drags Anderson up, tags Matt in and they mug Anderson. Matt wrenches, Anderson powers Matt to the corner, and he throws hands! Tag to Gallows, the Good Brothers mug Matt, then Gallows ROCKS Matt with uppercuts and haymakers, over and over and over! Gallows backs off to throw ’em up, then drags Matt up for a HEADBUTT!

Omega tags in, he and Gallows hand off the wristlock, and Omega wrenches Matt to CLUB the arm! Omega drags Matt to CLUB the arm again, then wraps the arm around ropes to pull! The ref counts, Omega lets off, and bumps Matt off buckles. Tag to Anderson, Anderson snapmares Matt to a chinlock. Matt endures, Anderson cranks back, and Matt fights up to throw body shots. Anderson ROCKS Matt with an uppercut, then CHOPS him! Anderson keeps Matt from his corner as AEW returns to single picture, and whips him back towards the Biz Cliz corner. Matt dropkicks Gallows down, DECKS Omega, then BOOTS Anderson! Matt swings into a back suplex but lands on his feet! Hot tag to Moxley!

Moxley dodges Anderson, DECKS Omega and hits Gallows, then rallies on Anderson! Moxley clotheslines, whips but Anderson reverses! Anderson runs in to clothesline, but Moxley just shrugs it off! Anderson fires off CHOPS but Moxley just leans into them! Moxley SLAPS Anderson, runs and gets around to SNAP GERMAN! Omega gets in, he gets a SNAP GERMAN! Gallows runs in but he gets a BIG GERMAN! Moxley gets Anderson with a sleeper on the apron but Anderson hotshots him! Gallows tags in, runs and YAKUZA KICKS Moxley down! Gallows drags Moxley up to rain down hands, drops an elbow, and covers, TWO!

Gallows throws heavy hands and Moxley flounders into a BUZZSAW! Gallows stalks Moxley to a corner, rains down more fists, then goes corner to corner, but Moxley gets up and in his face! Both men dodge and spin, Moxley kicks low to NECKBREAKER! Fans fire up as Moxley heads for the corner, hot tags to Nick and Anderson! Nick dodges Anderson to BLAST Omega! Nick bobs ‘n’ weaves to forearm, back kick, ROUNDHOUSE and have Anderson in a corner!

Gallows gets in, throws hands then throws Nick, but Nick dodges! ROUNDHOUSE, SHINING WIZARD and forearm smash in the corner, the Nick runs at Anderson. Anderson dodges, Nick hits buckles, but then Nick dodges as Anderson runs in! Anderson gets stuck in the corner, Nick runs at Gallows but is put on the apron! Nick ENZIGURIS back, climbs up and DUMDUM STOMPS, to then somersault for the DRAPING BACKSTABBER! Fans fire up with Nick as he goes to the apron and PENALTY KICKS Gallows down! Nick shoulders into Anderson, then slingshots, into the SPINEBUSTER! Both men are down but crawling, hot tags to Matt and Omega!

Omega stops in his tracks when he sees it’s Matt! Omega wants Matt to calm down and have a match, not a brawl. But then Omega rushes Matt, only to be sent into buckles! Matt hip tosses Omega, arm-drags him around, then whips for a BIG back drop! Omega flounders, Matt fires up and aims, but he fakes the superkick to SPIKE DDT!

Matt fireman’s carries, MORE BANG FOR YOUR BUCK!! Cover, Anderson breaks it in time!!

Nick whips Anderson back out, then he goes up and up and ESCALARAS to take the Good Brothers down! Matt is again checking on Matt, but Nick wants him to finish this off. The Bucks get Omega up, they have an arm each, B T E- No, Matt hesitates! Moxley tells them to finish this! Matt knows, and says he can do this. Matt and Nick get Onega up again, B T E Tr- No…!! Matt still can’t bring himself to do it! Moxley tags in and says he’ll do this! But Matt won’t let him, so now Mox sees where this is going. Moxley blows past Matt to hit a PARADIGM SHIFT on Omega!! And then a SECOND PARADIGM SHIFT to make a point!! BULLY CHOKE!! Omega is stuck, sputtering, and then Moxley spins Omega-

NICK SUPERKICKS Moxley?! The MATT SUPERKICKS MOXLEY!! Eddie Kingston storms out to ringside, but the Good Brothers jump him! Moxley’s friend gets stomped down by Omega’s friends, but what does all this make the Bucks? MAGIC KILLER to Kingston on the ramp!! Callis says they should get a stretcher for Kingston. The Good Brothers get Moxley up, MAGIC KILLER! They put Omega on Moxley for the cover, the Biz Cliz wins!

Winners: Kenny Omega & The Good Brothers, by pinfall

Are the Young Bucks still Omega’s friends? Are they still Biz Cliz 4 Life? Omega wants them to prove their loyalties by doing something more to Moxley! Callis whispers something to Matt, and Matt looks to Nick. They DOUBLE SUPERKICK Moxley down! Fans chant, “You Sold Out!” as Matt refuses the Too Sweet, so they can group hug! When will this emotional roller coaster with the Elite end?


My Thoughts:

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

Winners: The Dark Order, by pinfall

And indeed, Players One, Two and Three get the 1-2-3! Will they continue to stand strong, even with enemies closing in on all sides?

 

Ryan Nemeth, Cezar Bononi & JD Drake talk backstage.

Beautiful Bononi tells the Hollywood Hunk that this was his idea, and Bononi already said it is “humanly impossible,” so it is all on Nemeth. Nemeth says he needs two wingmen! 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. He wants them to know he loves ’em and he’ll see them out there. Will Pretty Peter Avalon’s boys be able to pull it off?

 

Six Man Tag: Team Taz VS Justin Law, Hayden Backlund & Brick Aldridge!

The Absolute, the Machine and the Powerhouse won their first match as a trio, but it was a bit… tense. Will Team Taz still (not) be fine after another try?

The trios sort out, with Team Taz arguing a little, and Cage gets the team to let him start. Cage starts against Law, and runs him right over! Cage drags Law back up, whips him to a corner but Law goes up and over, only to get caught! Law flails and gets free, dodges Cage and tilt-o-whirls, only for Cage to TOSS him away! Brick tags in, circles with Cage, and fans rally up as the two tie up. Cage gets to a headlock, Brick powers out to a hammerlock then a headlock, but Cage powers out. Brick rams Cage but Cage comes back to ram and ROCK Brick! “Who betta?!” Starks cheers a little too much as Cage whips Brick. Brick reverses but Cage tilt-o-whirls to headscissor!

Cage waits for Brick to get up, then he back kicks and snap suplexes! Cage runs to drop a leg, brother! Cage hauls Brick up, looks at Starks, and tags Hobbs in.

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?

The Hybrid2 VS Bear Country!

Angelico & Jack Evans know Boulder & Bronson are headed for a clash of titans with Jurassic Express, but that won’t scare them off! Can TH2 keep from getting lost in Bear Country in the Dark? Or will they merely whet the appetite as the bears head for Dynamite?

Winners: Bear Country, by pinfall

Boulder & Bronson are rolling towards their showdown with Jurassic Express! But who will survive when these forces of nature collide on Dynamite?


My Thoughts:

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.

My Score: 8.1/10
