PLAY BY PLAY
It’s the Revolution Buy-In!
Sting’s return is nostalgic, historic, and shocking! He saw something of himself in Darby Allin, but why is he in AEW? Sting did not leave under his own terms a few too many times, and he won’t do that ever again. Darby doesn’t just remind Sting of himself with the paint, but the aura and the way he thinks. Team Taz thinks Darby is obsessed with Taz, but it has been the other way this whole time. Team Taz claims their number game is playing fair, but Sting and Darby having baseball bats and skateboards is dirty. So to get dirty, it’s going to be a STREET FIGHT! There’s respect but no fear here. “It’s all about survival.” Who survives when civility is thrown to the curb and the only rule is to win?
Aneki was on the edge of retirement when AEW Double or Nothing 2019 called to her. First wrestling for AEW left her wanting to come back for more. She has won the Women’s Title Eliminator Tournament, and she won’t let this chance pass her by. With a reinvigorated passion, she won the Japanese Bracket by beating one of her greatest rivals in Aja Kong, and then she brought all that emotion and tension to win the whole thing against Nyla Rose. Hikaru Shida remembers first meeting Mizunami in 2010, and her bragging that even if Shida wrestled for 100 years, she could never beat Mizunami. They’ve faced off three times, and have gone to DRAWS three times!
But now, 11 years later, we’ll see if someone can finally win! Mizunami didn’t retire all so she could beat Shida! Shida has been a fighting champion for half a year now, and has built a bridge between Japan and the world, and vows to be the one to cross it! Will Shida prove she’s the best Women’s Champion in the WORLD?! Or will she have to admit Aneki is still too great.
Young Bucks and two singles wrestlers as a team? “Here we go again.” Revolution 2020 was the Bucks VS Hangman & Omega, and the Bucks lost. Is that in the back of their minds? Of course! They don’t want to repeat history. They’ve changed tag team wrestling in the world, but took longer than expected to get the AEW World Tag Team Championships. It felt a lot like the independents in some ways. But after what Y2MJF have down to them and their family, “two egomaniacs who think they can do whatever they want,” the Bucks are sick of it. Is the bond of Y2MJF real? Who knows. What hasn’t Jericho done? What can’t Jericho be? But then there’s MJF, “a piece of shit.”
Jericho sings the praises of MJF, who is only 24 and is already a top name in pro-wrestling. MJF has only done that after being on TV for just over a year! But they’re so alike, will that only cause them to break apart? The Bucks say this could’ve just been standard pro-wrestling war of words, but Y2MJF went and made it personal. Attacking their friends, attacking them, attacking their FATHER, Y2MJF have gone too far! MJF asks if there is a right and wrong when it comes to winning. That move alone will do damage to the Bucks more than any wrestling move could. But will this emotional attack only motivate the Bucks to go from beating to hurting Y2MJF?
Big Money Matt was upset that he couldn’t outsmart the Cowboy, and now is trying to make him pay for it! But a win and a loss aren’t just on the line, a massive amount of revenue is, too! The loser’s 2021 first quarter financial earnings will be given to the winner! Hardy threatens to hurt Hangman Page both directly and indirectly, but will Hardy morally bankrupt himself first?
To be the Face of the Revolution, you have to take risks. And there’s little riskier in wrestling than a Ladder match! But the reward is worth the risk, because only one can go after the TNT Championship! It is just as important to AEW as the world title is, because of the Open Challenge legacy and the memory of Brodie Lee. Every man has something to prove, from Scorpio Sky wanting his breakthrough, Cody Rhodes who wants to recapture former glory, to Platinum Max Caster wanting to prove the worth he already feels he has, to Lance Archer wanting what should’ve been his all along, to Pentagon showing what Cero Miedo is truly about! But there is a wild card left to be revealed! Who will lead the way as the Face of the Revolution?
“You can only roll the dice so many times.” Moxley knew something would happen at some point. As many challengers as he took on in 2020, he knew he’d get caught up. But the way for it to happen just left a bad taste in his mouth. Don Callis says those who live moment to moment can’t understand how he and Kenny Omega planned this out. This wasn’t just a few weeks or a few years. This was all being worked towards for 27 YEARS! The Invisible Hand has guided Omega from the shadows, and so the “insects” are of course unable to grasp this. There’s no such thing as family in the business, but there is between Callis and Omega.
Callis and Omega think on another level. Callis’ plan has made Omega the Michael Jordan of wrestling, as he should be! And the Good Brothers are his powerful back-up. Moxley doesn’t care if it’s AEW, NJPW, Impact, everyone’s trying to take him out. Good luck, because you’re not the first, and won’t be the last. Callis says Moxley is a cockroach, but this Exploding Barbed Wire Deathmatch will be his extermination! Moxley and Omega have already raised the bar on intensity and violence, but this is a legendarily lethal stipulation! And Omega says it will be so humiliating for Moxley to look himself in the mirror and say that not only couldn’t he outwrestle Omega, but outdo him in something right up his alley!
Moxley knows this is all designed to destroy him, but it is his responsibility to take Omega out. If this is the end, then Moxley can’t think of a better way to go. Will barbed wires, explosions, and whatever the hell else these two bring to the fight be enough to end it?
Thunder Rosa & Riho VS Britt Baker & Rebel!
The former NWA Women’s World Champion teams with the inaugural AEW Women’s World Champion to silence a common enemy! But will the Dentist and her assistant be the ones smiling at the end of this kickoff?
Britt has a mic but no Rebel? It seems she’s excused her sidekick from this match because of the “brutal” attack from Nyla Rose! But Tony Khan and Britt got a second opinion, and Rebel hobbles out with a crutch! Rebel can’t compete, so Britt has a replacement! This is the perfect substitute for tonight, it’s… MAKI ITOH!!

AEW World Championship Exploding Barbed Wire Deathmatch: Kenny Omega w/ Don Callis VS Jon Moxley!
Three sides are barbed wires. There are explosives set to go off if the barbed wires are pushed far enough. There are three “Triple Hell” spots that go off on contact! And if the match isn’t over after 30 minutes, ALL explosives go off! This match could end the Cleaner’s title reign, but could it end someone’s career?!
AEW isn’t risking anything, the ref is even wearing a fireproof hazard suit and plastic face shield just in case. Moxley wears a jacket that is in tribute to Atsushi Onita, and then has a sip of liquid courage to help him to the ring. Omega wears a shirt that already commemorates this moment in history, and Callis joins commentary to guarantee he has overseen all of this. This is a “special send-off” for Moxley. The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and Moxley finishes off that flask as we see what gives first: title reign or wrestling career!
Fans are thunderous already as Moxley and Omega stare down. “This is Awesome!” already as Omega and Moxley slowly circle. The clock is ticking on that 30 minutes but these two don’t seem to be in any hurry. They tie up, and Omega tries to push Moxley to barbed wire! Moxley holds firm but Omega claws at Moxley’s face and hair! Moxley turns things around! Omega fights back now by clawing at Moxley’s face and hair! They go the other way and are dangerously close, but Moxley tries to pull Omega in! Omega pushes Moxley, Moxley headbutts Omega! Omega throws a haymaker and now it’s a brawl! Omega CHOPS, Moxley CHOPS, repeat!
Omega kicks low, headlocks, but Moxley tries to push him back. Omega brings Moxley around but has to stop himself from going into the other ropes! Moxley gets close but Omega cranks on the headlock. Moxley hits a back suplex! Omega holds on with the headlock and thrashes Moxley around! Moxley sits up, Omega clubs him, and throws a forearm! Omega BITES Moxley’s forehead! Omega whips but Moxley stops himself! Moxley dodges and Omega has to stop himself! Moxley kicks Omega and suplexes but Omega fights that off! Omega ROCKS Moxley, whips him but Moxley reverses!
Omega hits the corner panel, which is safe, but he runs into a fireman’s carry! Moxley goes to throw Omega but Omega gets away! Fans cheer as the two stand off and reset. Omega and Moxley slap some nerve into themselves and the fans rally up. Moxley and Omega throw JABS back and forth, then forearms! Omega rakes Moxley’s eyes! Omega runs to the safe ropes to rebound and BOOT! Moxley stays up, Omega BOOTS, then runs again, but Moxley clothesline him out to the ramp! Moxley pursues, gets a chair and tosses it in the ring! And then a kendo stick, and then a chair wrapped heavily in barbed wire!
Moxley has Barbie the Baseball Bat and SMACKS Omega with it! The barbed wire gets Omega in the stomach, then Moxley brings it around on Omega’s face to hit a Russian Leg Sweep to the stage! Moxley gets the kendo stick back and he SMACKS Omega on the back! And again! Omega gets back to the ring but Moxley has both bat and kendo stick! Moxley dual wields ! But Omega is dumping out some POCKET SAND!! Moxley swings wild but Omega taunts him. Omega kicks Moxley low, and whips Moxley to barbed wire, BANG! The first explosion goes off and fans lose their minds! Callis thinks that’s it but Moxley still breathes! Omega covers, TWO!!
Omega has the kendo stick and he SMACKS Moxley down! And again! And then SMACKS a leg! Moxley writhes but Omega has a trash can. Omega SMASHES the can on Moxley’s head! Omega stands the can up, gets Moxley’s leg, and hits a SHIN BREAKER to the can! Moxley writhes again and Callis is loving this! Omega gets the kendo stick and he uses it to choke Moxley! Moxley fights but Omega SMACKS him, then KOTARO KRUSHERS to the can! Cover, TWO! Omega goes after the bad leg and yanks on it, then drops down with a FIGURE FOURE! Moxley endures the leg hold but his face is bleeding! The ref checks, Moxley refuses to quit, and Moxley reaches around.
Moxley grabs the barbed wire wrapped chair! He grinds it on Omega’s legs like razor sharp sandpaper!! Omega lets Moxley go to check his legs and even hands. No blood, and Omega ducks the barbed wire bat attack! Omega full nelsons but Moxley breaks free! Moxley runs but Omega THROWS him into the barbed wire board and BREAKS IT!! If Moxley wasn’t bleeding before, he is now! A crimson mask is about to have sleeves to match as Moxley is prying himself. Omega drags Moxley around, but has to carefully climb the ropes to MOONSAULT! Cover, TWO!! Omega says that’s alright, he gets the kendo stick to SMACK Moxley over an dover! And then SMACKS him on the back of the head!
The count is 20 minutes left before the big explosion. Omega wants the figure four but Moxley boots him at ropes! BANG!! Omega staggers, into a SHOTGUN DROPKICK! BANG!!! If explosions were scores, Moxley is up by one! Fans lose their minds again and say “This is Awesome!” Omega crawls, Moxley follows, but Omega drags Moxley up first. Moxley gets an EXPLODER! Omega is down while Moxley peers through his crimson mask! Moxley drags Omega up, has both wrists, and reels him into a pump handle! Omega fights the suplex off and elbows Moxley, to full nelson! Moxley blocks the Dragon Suplex to throw Omega off! EXPLODER through the other barbed wire board!
Both men are down, but Omega is not stuck in the wires like Moxley’s. Moxley sets the chair up and has to wipe blood away from his face so he can see again. Omega slowly rises, Moxley tells him bang bang, and reels him in for underhooks. Omega fights free, and ROLLING ELBOWS Moxley, to then Electric Chair! Moxley escapes to GERMAN SUPLEX Omega onto the can! Moxley gets up, reels Omega into a SIDEWALK SLAM onto the barbed wire chair!! The jeans are hooked in the wires for a moment but Omega frees his legs. Moxley rips part of the wire off the chair?! Flashback to his I Quit match with Eddie Kingston, Moxley has the barbed wire arm!
Fans are calling Moxley a “Sick F*ck!” as he aims at Omega! Omega fights back with forearms! Moxley wobbles but power sup, Omega BOOTS him! Moxley spins around to LARIAT with the left hand! Moxley aims with the dangerous right, but Omega ducks to SNAP DRAGON! Omega drags Moxley back around for another SNAP DRAGON! Moxley is right up!? V-TRIGGER! BARBED WIRE LARIAT!!! Fans are still thunderous as Moxley and Omega rise. Moxley fires up and he reels Omega in, but no Paradigm Shift! Omega shoves Moxley and himself to ropes! BANG!!! That explosion might’ve been the biggest yet! The ref calls for water to wash Omega’s eyes out!
Omega and Moxley crawl out from under the ropes, blood and smoke and light all reasons why their vision is impaired. They both stand on the edge, fans rally and duel, and Omega JABS! Moxley JABS, Omega JABS, then CHOPS! Omega CHOPS and CHOPS but Moxley throws forearms. They brawl, Moxley rakes Moxley’s eyes and bloody wound! Omega brings Moxley around but Moxley resists the hip toss to hell! Omega clubs away on Moxley, Moxley hits back, and BITES Omega’s head! Moxley headlocks then KNEES Omega! Omega wobbles, Moxley brings him in, throws more knees, and then underhooks! DEATH RIDER TO HELL!!! They crash on the “mines” and BOOM!
Moxley writhes but he’s in the worst spot! Omega is ironically safe from the wires because he took that header. Moxley makes sure no blood is from his arms. He is clean, but he carefully frees himself from the wires. Omega is now bleeding from the forehead and fans are thunderously dueling. Moxley and Omega lock eyes from across hell, and Moxley gets a LONG strand of barbed wire for his own. Moxley hurts himself just to bend the wires around to a shape he can wield. Moxley then puts Omega in the ring, stalks after him, and sits him up to BARBED WIRE PUNCH him! And again! And again! Omega manages to stay seated upright, but we get a FINAL COUNTDOWN~!
Moxley hurries to get Omega up, and hits a PILEDRIVER!! Cover, TWO!?! Omega is still in this, Moxley covers again, TWO!! How much longer do they have?! Moxley drags Omega up again, underhooks, but Omega drops and LOW BLOWS! Omega brings Moxley in, brings him up and POWERBOMBS! High stack, TWO!! Moxley flounders about, moves things out of his way, and Omega grabs at the ref?! Moxley stands, Omega steadies himself and V-TRIGGERS! Moxley is still up, for another V-TRIGGER from Omega! Omega Electric Chair lifts Moxley, for a ONE WINGED ANGEL!! Cover, BANG because of the ropebreak!! Moxley survives the match only because he risked his life!
Moxley gets the barbed wire bat! Omega writhes as the flash blinded him again! Moxley roars and rises, fans are thunderously dueling again, but here come the GOOD BROTHERS! Karl Anderson gets in but gets SMACKED by the bat! Luke Gallows gives Omega an extra thicc Barbie, for him to HOMERUN! It had an explosive inside?! Callis says THAT was their secret trump card! Cover, TWO!?!? Omega is furious with the ref and tears off a sleeve of the hazmat suit! The Biz Cliz set Moxley up, as well as a chair! Five minutes left before the explosion, ONE WINGED ANGEL to the chair!! The chair crumbles, as does Moxley, and Omega covers, Omega wins!
Winner: Kenny Omega, by pinfall (still AEW World Champion)
Callis laughs and says this was all strategy! Callis declares Omega not just God of Wrestling, but the God of Deathmatches! But it was only because of Gallows & Anderson that Omega survives with his reign intact! Callis warns his guys that there’s still a countdown in progress! Biz Cliz doesn’t care, they throw the ref away and mug Moxley more! Omega throws things out of the ring and at the ref! Gallows & Anderson handcuff Moxley! They stomp Moxley, Omega says this is what Moxley wanted and this is what he got! Anderson makes sure Moxley’s forehead wound keeps bleeding! But the clock is ticking, are they going to leave Moxley for dead?!
Omega uses his Extra Thicc Barbie to DIG Moxley’s forehead open! Two minutes left, the Biz Cliz needs to get going! Omega SMASHES Moxley in the stomach with the bat, then SMASHES him on the back! Fans boo but Omega isn’t done adding insult to injury! They make us look at Moxley’s bloody face! Wait, wait, wait! NOW we get a final countdown! ONE MINUTE AND COUNTING! Callis says it should be fine, but he’ll be going over here just because. RUN, BIZ CLIZ, RUN!! Moxley is stuck in the ring with only 30 seconds left!
Wait, Eddie Kingston and The Fam are here?! Kingston still cares about Moxley! He tries to get Moxley out but his Fam leaves him behind!! HURRY, KINGSTON!! NOOOO~! Kingston covers Moxley- Oh, what? Sparklers and firecrackers? Was Callis trolling? Or was his “Moxley Extermination Chamber” a dud? Kingston doesn’t want to leave Moxley. Is he actually out cold or is he just being dramatic? Point is, Moxley is in awful shape. Will he ever be able to compete again?
I know we just saw an underwhelming finish as far as the “final explosion,” but this was still another incredible AEW PPV. The Buy-In match’s surprise of Maki Itoh was awesome, because I was oddly wondering if anyone else from the Women’s Title Eliminator Tournament Japan bracket made the trip. The Buy-In match itself was great stuff, too, but of course Britt cheats to win. Then later, after the awesome Women’s Championship match, I’m a little disappointed it wasn’t Big Swole who attacked Shida after her great promo on AEW Dark. I suppose setting up a great Six Woman Tag is good, and I suppose Swole will crash the match to start beef with Shida, but I would’ve preferred if actual story was put first.
Not to be mean, but for the hype we got over the last few days, talking about a WWE Hall of Fame contender and then tonight’s line about “they can outwork anyone,” I was not picturing Christian at all. And not just because I was hoping WWE would do more with Edge & Christian once Mania season is over. Christian is great on the mic, but from what I remember, only good in the ring. I just feel like this is a little too “Instant Classic” Christian Cage back when he went to TNA Impact, or even when he returned to WWE in 2009 and ended up their ECW Champion. He could probably be a TNT Championship contender, but I’m not seeing world title potential.
The tag title match was a great opener, and for just a second I thought Y2MJF were going to cheat those belts away from the Bucks, but it is much better for THE tag team to win this time. Plus, we’re going to see an “Inner Circle War Council” segment happen on Dynamite, and I bet MJF starts to suggest replacements for the “weaker” parts of the faction. I am surprised Santana & Ortiz didn’t win the Casino Tag Battle Royal but that could feed into the “war council” and the suggested substitutions. Death Triangle winning is great, but I wish they’d been able to make it the Lucha Brothers in this case. Penta didn’t win the ladder match, so what’s he going to do now? Or will Death Triangle use Freebird rules?
The ladder match was also great stuff, and that was pretty big for Ethan Page to debut through that match. Max Caster had a scathingly good rap this time (which I couldn’t get written down because B/R Live doesn’t allow pausing or anything), I hope that turns up somewhere. I appreciate that they did everything to make us think Cody was going to swipe this from the others, since that was what we were all thinking anyway. But in the end, Scorpio Sky winning this a great move, and Scorpio is going to have a great match with Darby. Though, I guess that means Darby lived, we did see him fall into the abyss with Cage…
Speaking of, that Street Fight cinematic was great, but the moment before Darby tosses the bat to Sting so clearly was just an edited shot of Sting in like a green screen moment. I should’ve figured Sting would not only be on the winning side but get the win himself. We may criticize WWE for their use of part-timers and returning legends, but Sting is the one case where he’s gotten raw deals wherever he goes, so maybe AEW can be where he properly retires, whenever that will be. I wouldn’t be surprised if his partnership with Darby continues as more of a mentor, but then is his tag partner when needed.
Miro’s attack before the grudge match was a good touch, it makes sense he’d do something like that. I’m a little disappointed Trent didn’t come out to be Chuck’s tag partner, but I guess if Miro was meant to win this, they’d want to save Trent’s heroic return for another time. I hope Miro shoving Cassidy in Penelope and Sabian being a bit upset about that is the cracks in the foundation. Miro and Sabian have had their time as a team, they should both be back to singles competitors, and it could be because Miro is selfishly reckless and putting both Sabian and Penelope in harm’s way.
The Big Money match was really good, and I’m surprised Hangman won, but it was great for Dark Order to counter Private Party. I wonder where things go from here, especially with Hardy not having big money anymore. Will he desperately try and get Private Party to do things so that the money they make becomes the money he makes? Though, I suppose Hangman could point out that he will get 100% of the 30% Hardy is taking from Private Party, and then Big Money Matt is left broke. And then Hangman and the Dark Order can throw big money parties to rub it in Hardy Party’s face.
Then holy crap and a half that Exploding Barbed Wire Deathmatch. We got a great detail in the ref wearing the safety gear, we got some good references back to the Lights Out Match from Full Gear, though a little disappointed there was no barbed wire wrapped broom. There was a great reference back to the I Quit match with the barbed wire forearm and knuckles, and I liked that the explosions were used so Moxley could survive a One Winged Angel without really surviving it. The One Winged Angel is a properly protected finisher in an era where false finishers are the standard way of upping a match’s star level and a wrestler’s power level.
Omega got great Heel heat for needing the Good Brothers to help. It kinda sucks that they did that but clearly Omega was meant to win so how else would he do that? I liked that Kingston hurried out to save Moxley because deep down, they’re still friends. It makes sense that The Fam stayed Heel because they didn’t care enough to help, and that could also cause tension in that group. To me, Kingston no longer needs to be in charge of them and they don’t need to listen to him, that story kinda ran its course by the time Pac returned to reunite with the Lucha Brothers.
Now yes, the final explosion was not anywhere near what was promised by, well, anything. Callis said he accounted for everything so the dud should be pinned on him, and a lot of the next phase of the story should branch from that. Callis should admit that he didn’t let the final, “end it all” explosion be as big as it could have just in case all the screw job tactics screwed up and it was Omega left for dead. Then with Kingston and Moxley, it’d be a bit too comedic for them to say Kingston passed out from the heightened drama and fear for his life, but that’s the only way to salvage his sell. We all know the sparklers and such were NOT dangerous at all.
And in reality, we know Tony Khan couldn’t go as big on the ring explosion as even just the pyro they do on stage. As great as it would’ve been to see a lot more fire, and then maybe the ring falls apart with Kingston and Moxley riding it out, we have to remember there are surely going to be AEW Dark matches recorded tonight for Tuesday’s broadcast, and rebuilding a demolished ring would just add too much time onto their busy night. Speaking of which, I hope the Dark After Revolution isn’t that many matches. A lot of people were on tonight’s card, we might only need half a dozen or so matches to get the handful of people left off their ring work for the week.
My Score: 9.6/10

AEW’s Rising Star of the week: Shawn Dean!
The Captain was found by The Elite in South Honor Wrestling. He didn’t know how long it would take, but he knew he’d be “one of those guys.” Dean joined the Navy right out of high school, following the tragedy of 9/11/2001. He felt he had to do what he could and spent a few years. That is where he grew up, learning honor, courage and commitment. Taking those values and being dedicated to the process helped him fight until he saw things through. After leaving military, he went to college to try football. He played Arena Football, but still wanted to do more.
Dean started wrestling at 29, locally in Chicago, but he got trained down in Atlanta. He left family behind so that he could provide for them. When it was all said and done, he had only $20 to his name. He thought this was it, but he wasn’t going to quit. He wanted to prove he belonged. He hit his stride, got his bookings, and then the pandemic hit. It felt like the dream was taken away.
But then, a year later, he got a tweet from Tony Khan that read, “Thank you for your service to the USA, and thank you for everything you’ve done for AEW to help us thrive through the pandemic. Your consistent hard work, positivity and reliability have made you so valuable to AEW. Now it’s my honor to officially welcome you aboard!” The Captain was finally #AllElite! Dean had just gotten fired from his other job for going to AEW before. Dean knew that was not what he was meant to do, and for that tweet to show up later meant the world to him. It was vindication for being a hard worker and a good person his whole life. The journey doesn’t stop here, it only begins!

Ethan Page & Scorpio Sky speak.
All Ego says they requested this time “to air some grievances, which we’ve been doing quite a lot lately.” But specifically, their opponents tonight, First, Joey Janela. For not having the best singles record, they’ve given Janela TNT Championship opportunities.

And yet Scorpio had to earn his shot, in a grueling ladder match that Ethan was even part of! And yet, here Ethan is, too! Amazing singles records, but where is Ethan’s shot? Where is Scorpio’s rematch? Scorpio came so close to taking the title, but they’re not being rewarded. So now, they’ll take anything and everything.

Omega takes over the interview since he speaks Japanese. NOW, Marvez. Omega has Nakazawa show up because even though Omega knows Japanese, he wants Nakazawa to translate for him. “From the desk of Kenny Omega, welcome to AEW! Good to see you again. So I don’t know if you’ve heard, but we’re doing a little bit of scouting in AEW. And the talents that make an impact end up on Dynamite, all thanks to yours truly.”
And Omega remembers when he was in DDT, and how he was a nobody then. Takeshita put a roof over Omega’s head, put food in his mouth, and money in his pocket, and he became the star he is today. Now, Takeshita will pay Omega back. So whether Takeshita heard or not, but those Sydals keep getting on Omega’s nerves. So if Takeshita doesn’t mind, they can teach these kids a lesson!

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

AEW hears from QT Marshall.
In reference to Cody Rhodes, “Your mantra should be, ‘Do the work for me.‘ Whether it’s creating this incredible training facility, or carrying your broken down brother through whatever career he had left, ever since the beginning of our ‘friendship,’ all I’ve ever done is do work for you.” QT is sick of the narrative Cody is creating about how he was going out of his way to help QT, but leaving QT dead in the water before he ever got started. Cody wants to doubt QT Marshall’s credentials? Let’s talk about those credentials for a minute. Cody was second fiddle to Ted (DeBiase) Jr, then went hiding behind face paint because even as “Dusty’s kid,” he knew he’d never amount to shit.
But Cody “figured it out” at some point. He got on the indies, surrounded himself with “vanilla midgets,” and felt like the star he knew he’d never be. But QT has surrounded himself with men. Hungry, sick and tired of waiting in the shadows, and that can trust QT and QT can trust back. Because unlike “Bargain Brand Sting,” QT isn’t worried about other people’s success. Aaron Solow, “who will never be known as ‘just somebody’s boyfriend.'” Nick Comoroto, who isn’t just some “body guy.” And Anthony Ogogo, who is a household name in the UK! A mainstream fighter and star! The British follow his career and cheer every punch. Ogogo does Subway commercials for business and knocks people out for fun!
But this ain’t Great Britain, this is “Shitty” America! So all you Yanks are gonna learn soon enough who Ogogo is. QT tells Cody that this is HIS goddamn factory now! Comoroto splashes the Nightmare Factory logo on the wall with blue paint, and this fearsome foursome has left its mark! Will others join them? Or will they simply know not to side with The Prince of Pro-Wrestling?
AEW returns with Schiavone on stage.
This never gets old for Tony. Once again on Dynamite, “It’s STIIIIIIIING~!” The snow, the crow and the Icon! A lot to unpack with the TNT Championship coming up, but Jake the Snake interrupts. “This is not the way we do it. You remember! How can you forget? It’s only been what? Seven days?” They start, Snake and Archer interrupt, Sting does nothing and keeps his mouth shut, or maybe just shuts his hole. Where’s his little gerbil friend, by the way? Yes, he’s a gerbil. But they say insanity is doing the same thing over and expecting a different result, and Snake is a crazy son of a bitch so he should know!
But Archer interrupts now and says this is enough. If that’s insanity, then Snake isn’t the only crazy one, Archer’s “one sick son of a bitch!” And Archer is sick and tired of the AEW agenda! Bring Archer in, bring him to the top, but then send him away. He fights Moxley, then goes away. He works main event after main event, then he goes away. He’s done with that! The world will pay attention to the Murderhawk Monster, and Sting will pay attention closely. This is Archer’s time! Archer should be getting the interviews! Sting doesn’t need to talk because this is Archer’s time! But then Sting snatches the mic away!
“Now it’s MY time!” Then say something! He’d say something if Archer would be slow to speak and quick to listening. Zip up and understand that Sting AGREES! Archer is a main event guy, but then he disappears, and Sting doesn’t understand it, either! Snake, what’s wrong with you? What’s that dumbfounded face for? Tell Archer how to do it! Or maybe just shut your hole now. Sting says Archer IS main event material, he has “it,” but Snake needs to actually help him! Help Archer channel this in the right direction and then he will be in that ring on TNT in a main event, maybe even for the world title, without disappearances. Just make it happen! Make it showtime! If you’ve got it in you, go do it!
Sting storms off, but All Ego, Ethan Page, and the Face of the Revolution, Scorpio Sky, are watching from the bleachers. They don’t seem to see it Sting’s way, but what is Archer’s response? Archer storms off, too, with Snake following. With Ethan and Scorpio have their own input on this?
Team Taz speaks.
But before Taz himself can say anything, Ricky Starks speaks up and wants to start by saying AEW Dark was great! They got the win thank to Brian Cage! And as the winner, let’s hear from Cage! Taz speaks up and says no, not this time. Starks instigated, he isn’t going to get away with it this week. Will Hobbs wants to say something but Taz already knows what he’ll say. Everyone just needs to chill out, get on the same page. Starks, stop instigating. But they’ve got to be real smart, because they’ve got an offer to a real blue chipper in Christian Cage. That could happen! Starks says absolutely. But will they be able to handle having two Cages on the same team? Or will they end up with no Cages in no time?
AEW TNT Championship: Darby Allin w/ Sting VS JD Drake w/ Ryan Nemeth & Cezar Bononi!
The Relentless wants to be a fighting champion, and another rising star answered the call! Will the Blue Collar Badass prove that even a rugged mug like his can be the Face of the Network? Or will the Icon prove to be a superior wingman to the Hollywood Hunk and the Beautiful Brazilian Beefcake?
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.

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?

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?

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?
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.
