Adam Cole VS Frankie Kazarian!
The first AEW match for the Elite’s prodigal son is here! But will Jersey be all about the boom? Or will the Elite Hunter check off the newest name on his hitlist?
The bell rings and fans are fired up already. Cole and Kaz circle, then Cole rushes in! Kaz avoids the boot, arm-drags Cole away, then headlocks for a takeover. Cole headscissors but Kaz kips out to hit another headlock takeover. Cole fights up, powers out but Kaz runs him over! Things speed up, Kaz blocks a hip toss but so does Cole, so Kaz drop toeholds to float to the headlock. Kaz grinds Cole down as fans cheer the technical exchange. Cole fights up, powers Kaz to ropes, then back suplexes Kaz up and out! Kaz checks his face, Cole goes out after him. Cole brings Kaz up to whip him into the apron! Cole soaks up the cheers and the jeers before he puts Kaz back in.
Cole takes a bow and fans cheer. Cole goes to Kaz, but Kaz swings a haymaker! Cole avoids it and thrusts a shoulder, only for Kaz to hit the guillotine leg drop! Kaz says, “This is still my house!” Kaz aims, slingshots and sunset flips, but Cole rolls through to BOOT Kaz down! Fans fire up as Cole rains down rights! Cole then drags Kaz up into a chinlock and he grinds Kaz back down. Kaz endures, fans rally up, and Kaz throws body shots. Cole clinches but Kaz CHOPS! And CHOPS! Kaz whips, Cole reverses but Kaz rolls off Cole’s back to waistlock. Cole switches, Kaz victory rolls it, TWO! Kaz keeps a leg hooked up to drag Cole into a very unique triangle hold!
Fans rally as Cole endures, kicks with his free foot over and over and finally gets free! Kaz staggers, Cole fireman’s carries for USHIGOROSHI! Cover, TWO! Cole is annoyed but he goes to a corner. Fans cheer as he tunes up the band! Cole thinks he’s the Heartbreak Kid but Kaz blocks the kick! Kaz waistlocks, O’Conner Rolls to CHAOS THEORY! Cover, TWO! Cole survives but Kaz fires himself up! Cole goes to a corner, Kaz runs in and DOUBLE KNEES Cole in the back! Then chicken wing, but Cole fights that off! Cole goes up the corner and pushes back to roll Kaz up, TWO! Kaz gets to the corner, runs out but into a SUPERKICK! Cover, TWO!!
Cole can’t believe Kaz survives but fans are fired up again! Cole aims from the corner and climbs up now. Cole leaps but Kaz blocks Panama Sunrise to ALABAMA SLAM! Springboard leg drop! Cover, TWO!! Kaz and Cole are both down but fans are fired up all over again! Kaz and Cole throw forearms as they’re on the mat and go back and forth. They stand, Cole throws a forearm but Kaz gives it back. The forearms keep going, Kaz gets the edge, then mule kicks and knee lifts, into Cole’s BOOT! Kaz comes back to LARIAT! Kaz hurries to get Cole up but Cole hits a LAST SHOT! Cover, TWO!! Kaz survives again, that wasn’t the last shot!
Both men stir as fans declare, “This is Awesome!” Kaz gets to a corner, drags himself up, and Cole runs in but is put on the apron. Kaz and Cole each dodge a haymaker but Cole is ready for the leg drop this time! Cole dodges and Kaz lands on his ass, then Cole hurries up top. Cole leaps, PANAMA SUNRISE!! But Cole doesn’t stop there, he takes his knee pad down and… BLINDSIDE SHINING WIZARD! Cover, Cole wins!
Winner: Adam Cole, by pinfall
Call that one the BOOM, because that’s what it’s all about! Kaz is denied vengeance again, and Cole gets a mic to ask, “Who’s ready for story time with Adam Cole, baybay~? Hope. Hope is a dangerous, dangerous thing. And that locker room hopes it can keep up with the Elite. Well guess what? It ain’t gonna happen! I’ve only been here for a short time and there are three times who have really gotten under my skin: Christian Cage; Luchasaurus; and Jungle Boy!” Fans cheer for all three of those, but if those three are so tough, then how about next week’s AEW Rampage Grand Slam, those three VS Cole & The Bucks in a Six Man Tag?
“The Super Kliq is back, baybay. And there’s not a damn thing anybody can do to stop us!” Literal mic drop as the gauntlet has been cast! Will Captain Charisma lead Jurassic Express into battle against Cole and the former tag team champions?
AEW hears from The Lucha Brothers and the HFO’s mercenaries.
Rey Fenix calls out The Butcher & The Blade. They used to be a family, but it seems they’ve forgotten that. The brothers have the gold, and Butcher himself says “What you’re looking at are two of the baddest, meanest mother-” Blade has Butcher stop there. Blade himself says this is a new reality, a darker reality. Alexa Abrahantes translates for Penta as he says that this Friday, 9/17, AEW Rampage, “if you want the gold, you’ll have to sweat, you’ll have to cry and you’re gonna bleed!” What happens when these two ruthless duos do battle for the belts?
Tony Schiavone interviews Fuego Del Sol & Sammy Guevara.
Schiavone brings up that Fuego may have lost to Miro but he still got the contract, and now he’s got a brand new car! Fuego says this all new Hyundai is incredible. As much as he loves it, he’d trade it all away to be TNT Champion. Sammy asks if that’s a challenge. Y’know what? It is! Car VS Title for the TNT Championship on Rampage! The challenge has been made, will Miro accept it? And will Miro soon be the owner of a new Hyundai?
MJF heads to the ring!
Maxwell Jacob Friedman, Wardlow following behind, tells the production team to cut his music. Jersey boos really hard but MJF just smirks. “Last week, you guys were oh so sympathetic for Cryin’ Brian. But you should be sympathetic for me! Because right now, I am standing in the armpit of America known as New Jersey!” Fans call MJF an A-Hole but MJF asks Jersey what Bruce Springsteen, Taylor Ham and Jersey’s #MID hockey team have in common? “They all suck as hard as your Jersey Shore skanks!!” But MJF isn’t here to talk to the fans. He wants to have a conversation with the viewers at home.
See, MJF was “smartened up” about his comments last week possibly offending some of us fans. Fans tell MJF to STFU and he tells them nope. As for our feelings, he doesn’t care! But as we all know, MJF is Salt of the Earth and religious, so right now he wants to take a moment to have a conversation with the late, great Loose Cannon, Brian Pillman Sr. MJF looks to Heaven and asks Mr. Pillman- Oh wait! He looks down and shouts, “Hey, Pillman! We need to talk!” Fans boo harder as MJF just laughs at his tasteless joke. MJF continues to say that he’s a huge fan of the legend. But unfortunately, his widow #Methanie created the “worst excuse for a second generation wrestler in Brian Pillman Jr.”
So the reason MJF is “talking” to Pillman Sr. is to give him fair warning. “Tell your son if he shows up in that awful town known as Queens, that I am going to massacre him!” The people can chant the stupid last name, “Pillman! Pillman!” The fans actually do chant that. Chant as long as you want, because in the end it’ll be oh too obvious that MJF is better than- Here comes BPJ! MJF sends Wardlow to intercept but BPJ isn’t coming from the ramp side! He’s from the crowd side and with a chair! MJF panics but Wardlow returns to snatch the chair. BPJ SLAPS Wardlow, then dares him to bring it! Wardlow seethes and rushes in but BPJ dumps him to the apron!
BPJ gets the chair back and he swings! Wardlow gets away, he and MJF regroup and stand down! BPJ is ready to swing for the fences at Dynamite Grand Slam, but will MJF even step up to the plate?
AEW shares Jim Ross’ interview with BPJ from earlier today.
Good ol’ JR can remember so clearly, his phone rings and it was Pillman Sr. He told JR about his son being born, and how excited he was to say he was going to be “Little Brian.” Then in Cincinnati, JR just had this sick feeling of being embarrassed on behalf of the Pillman family. MJF humiliated BPJ but now BPJ can redeem himself. JR wants to tell BPJ that for the family’s sake, MJF needs to get his ass kicked. Is that what BPJ is planning on doing? Cuz that’s what it’ll take. BPJ says that JR knows his family’s history better than anybody. And he knows how important it is to BPJ to fulfill the legacy. Last week in Cincy, BPJ feels he let his father down.
But MJF! While you were waking up every day to Egyptian cotton and being fed from a silver spoon, BPJ was fighting for his life. The people know his story, they know where BPJ comes from, he and MJF are not the same. MJF will find out that he’s never been in a ring with someone like BPJ. BPJ might be clean and well put together right now, and he got through college and graduated, but where he’s from, the upbringing was FERAL. MJF doesn’t know what BPJ has lost or what he’s been through. But on 9/22 at Arthur Ashe Stadium, MJF isn’t stepping into the ring with any man. He’s stepping in the ring with a PILLMAN.
Backstage interview with Christian Cage & Jurassic Express.
Jungle Boy cuts Marvez off to say there’s been “a lot of fuss about Adam Cole and The Elite.” JB doesn’t get it, though. Because quite frankly, JB has better friends, better hair, and- Christian apologizes for cutting JB off here, but he’s thinking. Cole does have pretty good friends, actually. Yeah, the #SuperElite using their EVP status to throw Cole a lifeline and drag him out of “developmental.” But here’s the thing: CHALLENGE ACCEPTED! And since Cole is already used to losing Wednesday night wars, maybe he should add Fridays to that, too. JB wraps up with, “See you at the Grand Slam, baybay,” and Luchasaurus growls. Will this trio be able to strike out the Super Kliq?
FTR w/ Tully Blanchard VS Dante Martin & Matt Sydal!
Cash Wheeler & Dax Harwood may have lost to Santana & Ortiz, but they can still make a run at the AEW World Tag Team Championships. Will they run through Angel Dorado and the high flying veteran? Or will the young stud and the old cat be able to jump them in line?
The teams sort out and Dax starts with Sydal. The bell rings, FTR gives a quick hug but Sydal O’Conner Rolls! TWO, Sydal drags Dax to a cradle, TWO! Arm-drag after arm-drag, but Dax gets Sydal up!

Sydal drags himself up, Cash chokes him on the ropes! Cash lets off as the ref counts, but Tully gets his shots in! Tully gets away with it and Cash goes back to Sydal for a cobra twist. Sydal endures but then Tully distracts the ref. The ref doesn’t see FTR fake a tag and have Dax come in! But Sydal counters with a cradle!
The ref sees that and counts, TWO!! Dax CLOBBERS Sydal for foiling the plan! Tag to Cash, Cash stomps Sydal down. Tag to Dax, he drags Sydal up to whip and catch Sydal to the cobra twist!

Cash & Dax reestablish themselves and are ready to climb those rankings! Will FTR #FindTheirRedemption on the road into the Fall?
CM Punk talks the Suzuki Incident.
“This is a very delicate subject. This is something we take very, very seriously in All Elite Wrestling. Minoru Suzuki is a pioneer in not only professional wrestling but in mixed martial arts. He is a Carl Gotch trained professional wrestler, he’s the King of Pancrase, and he felt slighted that his entrance music was cut off.” That’s the gist of it. Suzuki feels insulted and he wants his full entrance song.
Lance Archer speaks on the “incident.”
“Moxley! You wanted Suzuki in AEW, to come to the United States of America and face you. But you wanted to do it in Cincinnati, Ohio of all places. If that’s not the definition of unfair, I dunno what the hell is.” Moxley had the refs on his side, the people on his side, and everything in his favor. Guess what? That changes in New York. Archer and Suzuki have been a team for a long time, and now Moxley and Kingston are going to learn, “Once Suzuki-Gun, always Suzuki-Gun.” And at the Grand Slam, Suzuki and the Murderhawk Monster will show us what Strong Style is all about in a way you never wanted to know. Suzuki-Gun ICHIBAN!
The lights go out!
And when they turn back on, we see it’s MALAKAI BLACK! The dark father goes to the ring, making the Jersey Devil proud with that mask. Malakai gets a mic and paces around as the fans cheer. Malakai has them hush and calls for the members of the House of Black to please rise. “For we have an enemy in our midst.” He looks right at… Rosario Dawson?! One of Cody Rhodes’ cohosts from The Go Big Show is in the front row, and Malakai is upset she is wearing the Nightmare Family tracksuit. Malakai goes out but she hops the railing to meet him! Malakai warns her not to do something foolish, but then from the crowd, here comes CODY RHODES himself!
Fans are going nuts as Cody is storming down the steps, but Rosario jumps on Malakai’s back! Fans are losing it as Cody gets in to DECK Malakai! Cody fires hands, Malakai forearms back! Malakai BOOTS but Cody comes right back to TOSS Malakai over the railing! They brawl right among the crowd and security does its best to keep up! Fans lose their minds as the brawl continues up the steps! Cody bumps Malakai off chairs and Rosario flexes for Team Cody. Malakai throws hands, the fight keeps going up, and Cody SMACKS Malakai with someone’s drink! Cody fires up and he drags Malakai along the way. Malakai hits back, they’re still going up and up!
Cody smacks Malakai off the railing! Malakai uses the railing to choke Cody! Cody gets free and SMACKS Malakai with another drink! Malakai hits back again, they go back up the stairs and a THIRD drink is used! Cody fires off hands, Malakai hits the bad leg! Malakai kicks the leg, Cody hobbles up the steps and Malakai borrows an idea from Cody! DRINK SMASH! AEW goes to break as this chaos continues!
AEW hears from The Bunny.
Allie says, “The Queenslayer, Anna Jay is back. And we’re all very excited.” But she wouldn’t have attacked her if she would just stay out of the way. But Anna can’t help herself, can she? Bunny says Anna should be careful. She wouldn’t want to get dragged down the rabbit hole, would she?
Backstage interview with Anna Jay and the Dark Order.
Alex Marvez notes this will be the Rampage debut of Anna as she takes on The Bunny. This is a big deal, and then Evil Uno speaks up. He promises to lead the way and- Alex Reynolds interrupts now, sarcastically saying Uno’s a great leader with him cutting off Anna when this was her interview. Looks like nothing’s change. Oh, good to see you back, Alex, after you left their group a few weeks ago! Uno has no idea what this is. No, Reynolds left Uno’s dumb ass and is back for Anna’s sake. Alan Angels speaks up now, saying that while Reynolds was gone, UNO has been going on a power trip! Anna shouts over them all! If they can’t get this together, she doesn’t want anyone ringside.
John Silver asks if he’s still allowed. No, no one gets to be ringside but Tay Conti. The ladies leave the boys to bicker, will the Dark Order get things… in order?
Dan Lambert, America Top Team and the Men of the Year are in the ring.
Lambert says, “When I was younger, if you wanted to know which wrestlers were popular, you’d go out to the merchandise stand and see what was selling. But do that at an AEW show and you learn more about its fanbase than you do about tis wrestlers, because every single t-shirt is sold out. In men’s small and women’s large!” If the truth hurts, then cover up your fragile little ears and then they’ll return to the “regularly scheduled” programming where you can watch some “5’8”, 149 pound dork throw 11 Superkicks, climb up three levels to the highest balcony of the building, do a backflip all the way to the floor, crashing through six tables, landing on his lifeless opponent, who will kick out at the count of two, and you morons will go crazy.”
Fans tell Lambert to STFU but here comes CHRIS JERICHO! Fans sing Judas as Le Champion AND Jake Hager walk out. Lambert tells production to turn off the music! The fans don’t really know the song, they’re googling the lyrics on their phones right now! “TURN THAT S*IT OFF!” But the fans sing Judas because they DO know it! Jericho just shrugs as he enjoys it. Jericho then says that sounds like there’s 15 THOUSAND people here who LOVE that song! And they could sing along to Lambert’s song, but no one knows the words to “I’m a Fat Faced Dipsh*t, Yeah Yeah Yeah.” Wait, here it is! Jericho sings it for us!
Lambert says that’s really funny. He admits to see Jericho out here defending this company, but it makes sense. Tony Conman isn’t the master manipulator, it’s JERICHO. Jericho will do and say whatever to get the fans to spend their allowances that their parents give them on Jericho’s stupid book o’ the month club and his Fozzy records! Wait, you guys get an allowance? And what is Lambert’s problem? He stands there, screaming like a grumpy old man at the AEW clouds, surrounded by American Top Team. Seeing all these meatheads here, Jericho has one question: Who’s on top? Fans chant, “WHO’S ON TOP?”
Jericho says Lambert’s got nothing! All the power’s in his fist cuz he relies on scare tactics, but he can’t scare Big Jake! Jake is undefeated in MMA! And Jericho’s been getting into skirmishes with MMA tough guys his whole career! The Beast a few years ago, and even before that he had a shoot fight with the Raging Bill. They didn’t kill Jericho, Lambert’s team can’t, either. But like our friend and honorary Inner Circle member, Mike Tyson, once said, “Everybody’s got a plan until they get punched in the face.” So maybe Hager and Jericho go to the ring and knock those chipmunk buck teeth of Lambert’s right down his friggin’ throat?!
Ethan Page, Scorpio Sky and all of Lambert’s people dare Jericho and Hager to do this. Lambert says he has to give them credit, the quicker they get to it is the quicker they get through it. But if this is to go down, and if the fans really want to see the American Top Team fueled Men of the Year take down the Inner Circle Jerks, it’ll have to be in a REAL city, not a s*ithole like Jersey! It’ll be the biggest city of them all, in the Big Apple! In that case, if Ethan & Scorpio are too much of pussies to face them here, it’ll happen next week! And there’ll be no escape from New York for them! The Grand Slam just got that much bigger! Will Hager & Jericho hit the Men of the Year out of the park?
The Gunn Club speaks.
Papa Billy says, “So we’re here to talk about disrespect. And no one has been more disrespected in AEW than the Gunn Club. Why did we do what we did to Paul Wight?” It was to get their point across. Wins and losses matter? Well let’s see… Billy & Colten as a team? Undefeated! Billy & Austin as a team? Undefeated! Austin & Colten as a team? UNDEFEATED! Trios? UN-DE-FEAT-ED! Now respect will be earned one way or another. And if anyone has a problem with that, just say when. The Gunn Club is locked and loaded, who will they shoot down on their way to respect and titles?
Jade Cargill w/ Mark Sterling VS Leyla Hirsch!
The storm has come to Jersey, but this is the city #LEGIT calls home! Will Jade be in for the toughest match of her young career? Will she be in for her first LOSS, at that?

Leyla throws down hands but Jade kicks her away. Jade bails out to regroup with Sterling but Leyla DIVES! Sterling takes the tope and Jade stomps Leyla down! Jade whips Leyla into the ring, gets in but Leyla gets around to waistlock. Jade backs Leyla into buckles, throws elbows then forearms. Jade whips corner to corner, Leyla reverses and runs in to forearm smash! Leyla sweeps the legs, runs corner to corner and METEORAS! Then SWINGING DROPKICKS! Cover, TWO! But Leyla has the ARMBAR!!
Jade clasps hands, fights up and dead lifts Leyla to POWERBOMB her! Jade stands up, scowls as she paces around, and AEW goes picture in picture as she stomps away on Leyla.
Jade drags Leyla up, whips her to ropes and Leyla tumbles out of the ring! Jade goes out after Leyla to stomp her back down. Jade whips Leyla hard into railing! Leyla falls over in a heap but Jade drags her back up for a snap suplex! Jade kips up and fires up, as does Sterling. Jade stomps Leyla more, the ref has her let off to check on Leyla and Jade goes to the ring. Jade’s willing to let the ring count settle this as Leyla stirs. The count is 5 of 10 before Leyla stands back up. Leyla gets in at 7, Jade stomps her to the ropes then kicks her around to a corner. Jade CLUBS Leyla against the ropes, brings her up but Leyla ROCKS Jade with a forearm!
Leyla throws more forearms but Jade CLUBS her back down. Jade drags Leyla back up but Leyla fires forearms back. Leyla swings but into a pump handle POWERSLAM! Jade drags Leyla back up, CLUBS her back down, but Leyla throws body shots. Jade CLUBS, stomps and drags Leyla around to another fireman’s carry. Leyla squirrels around to a SLEEPER HOLD!

Leyla waistlocks, Jade throws elbows but can’t get free! Jade keeps throwing elbows and she’s free now, but Leyla comes back to whip and GERMAN SUPLEX! Bridging cover, TWO!!
Jade survives and gets to the apron but Leyla runs and DIVES! Direct hit and Jade hits railing! Leyla puts Jade in, fans fire up and Leyla runs to KNEE Jade down! Cover, TWO!! Jade survives again and Sterling is panicking! Leyla puts Jade in a drop zone and goes up top, for a LEGIT MOONSAULT FLOP! Jade evades and comes back with the BOOT!! Jade isn’t done, she drags Leyla up for the chicken wings and JADED!! Cover, Jade wins!
Winner: Jade Cargill, by pinfall
That was Jade’s toughest match yet, but she comes out looking legit in her own right! Will this undefeated streak continue until the #JadeBrand is fighting for gold?
Andrade El Idolo speaks.
“If you lie to me, it’s because you don’t respect me. I’m always one step ahead. This is why I have my assistant, Jose.” Andrade swears he never gave the order to have them interrupt his match. So why the hell did Jose get on the apron?! He wants Jose to tell him why, and Jose says it was Chavo’s order. Chavo isn’t the boss! ANDRADE is the boss! He is the KINGPIN of AEW. He can beat PAC, or anyone he wants, when he wants. Will El Idolo prove he IS the face of Latino wrestlers when he wins one on his own?
Taz storms over to commentary.
He’s claiming CM Punk is taking his job now! But the rest of commentary defends Punk is just doing what he was asked. Punk stands up and Taz backs off. Taz’s son, Hook, stares Punk down but Punk asks Taz if he’s really letting his son get this close to things. Punk stares Hook down in return, but HOBBS attacks from behind! Powerhouse Hobbs punks out Punk and Taz says it’s clobbering time! Punk hits back on Hobbs but Hook gets a DRAGON SLEEPER! Team Taz mugs Punk, then they tell commentary to clear out. Schiavone, JR and Excalibur don’t have much choice as Hook starts pushing computer screens off the desk.
Hobbs drags Punk up and gives him an URENAGE onto the table! The table doesn’t break and Punk bounces off it! Team Taz leaves as security rushes in and fans boo. Will Punk be in any shape to get even with Taz and his actual punks?
AEW hears from Shawn Spears.
The Chairman sits with the chair he painted up for Darby Allin while calling him out. “I’m generic? I’m the piece of s*it? Correct, on all fronts. That’s why I was the guy to hand you your first loss here in AEW. That’s why history’s gonna repeat itself on Dynamite.” Allin can’t call down the rain without getting some mud! Spears didn’t invent rainy days, but for the past 20 years, he’s had the best damn umbrella! The Chairman cometh, but will he be leaving here clean and dry?
Darby Allin w/ Sting VS Shawn Spears w/ Tully Blanchard!
The Relentless One and the Icon may have gotten tricked by the very tactical Tully, but this is about proving Tully’s words are as wrong as the legend’s ever been. Will Spears be the one stinging from this rematch?
The bell rings and fans are fired up for Darby as he stares down Spears. But then Tully creeps closer, and Spears KNEES Darby down in the corner! Spears stomps a mudhole, then hangs Darby out to dry on the ropes! Darby falls to the floor, Spears goes out to high-five Tully, but now Sting creeps closer.

Spears then positions the steps by the ramp and brings Darby back over. Darby throws body shots but Spears CLUBS him and smacks him off the steps!

They stomp Sting down, rain down fists, but Darby crawls over. Darby attacks but Cash GERMAN SUPLEXES him down! FTR mugs Darby now, then they stand Sting up. Tully wants in on this as FTR hits the MIND BREAKER!! Tully has a towel of his own, and just as Spears wiped away Darby’s paint, Tully is wiping away Sting’s paint!
Fans boo as Tully leaves Darby and Steve down on the mat but the fans cuss them out. The Pinnacle doesn’t care, they’ll do this until they’re truly on top of AEW!
AEW hears from Bryan Danielson.
“The way The Elite acts and dresses, sound to me like people who are insecure.” Bryan isn’t exactly going after all of them, just one member. Bryan’s heard how great Omega is, and seen how great Omega is. Bryan is mostly just excited to get in the ring and wrestler Kenny Omega. But the reality is, if Omega doesn’t want to step up, then someone else will be Bryan’s first opponent. What Bryan loves about AEW is that everyone is hungry here. Everyone wants to go in and prove themselves. Bryan is here, he’s game, who’s ready to go?
Tony Schiavone is in the ring!
He’s excited to be here in New Jersey, and he loves wrestling because of BRYAN DANIELSON! The American Dragon heads to the ring, Jersey chants “YES! YES! YES!” for him as he joins Schiavone in the ring. Schiavone notes what Bryan’s said about Kenny Omega and The Elite, and we’d all love to see Bryan get in the ring with Omega. But before Bryan can speak, Don Callis interrupts, with Omega following behind. Callis says we’ve already heard enough from Bryan, because he’s been listening to it all week. It’s sickening, really. “The Hippie Millionaire,” the hero of the fans. “What a sanctimonious son of a bitch you are.”
It must’ve been so~ hard~ to make the decision to sign such a big contract and come to the number one wrestling company in the world, built on the back of Kenny Omega! “But wait, there’s more! The piece de resistance was, you made this final decision to come here, thinking of what was best for the entire wrestling business and everyone in it! And people call me a carny piece of s*it.” Fans do chant that at him, though. But Callis will take that back, because Omega corrected him. This is really how Bryan thinks. So in that case, Callis was wrong. Bryan isn’t a carny POS, he’s just a MARK like the fans! BTW, who does Bryan think he is, dictating who gets what?! Callis & Omega run AEW!
SHUT UP, DON! Bryan is here to talk to Omega. “Some day, this will be about the title. But right now, it’s just about who’s better. Let’s give the people what they want. Kenny Omega VS Bryan Danielson, what do you say?!?” Callis says NO! Fans say “YES! YES! YES!” Callis again says no, but Bryan tells him, “SHUT UP, YOU PIECE O’ S*IT!” Bryan is here to talk to Kenny Omega. But maybe he shouldn’t have. Bryan came to AEW to fight the Best Bout Machine, the GOD OF PRO-WRESTLING~! But since he’s been here, Bryan’s only ever seen a guy who hangs out with goofy stooges, and lets the POS talk for him. Fans still chant that.
Bryan heard the rumors that maybe Omega’s lost his confidence or lost a step. Bryan doesn’t think that’s true. He just thinks Omega’s lost his BALLS. So what does Omega say? Yes or no? Fans chant, “YES! YES! YES!” Callis says no, but Omega is given the mic to answer for himself. “So you say you want the Best Bout Machine? You say you want the God of Pro-Wrestling? My answer… is YES.” Callis isn’t happy about that! But it seems Omega agrees, this is about the people, and their pride as pro-wrestlers! Will Omega show everyone that he is still the best?
“Fuego. Every man I have redeemed has moved on to a better career. And after I had forgiven them, they’d all been smart enough not to stick around. So why are you calling me out?! They say, ‘Don’t put your hand on the stove that already burned you,’ but you are putting your throat on a blade that already spared you.” And now Fuego is challenging God’s Favorite Champion with a car on the line? Miro will bash Fuego’s brain, then bash the car, and the Fuego family will be grateful! Will the Redeemer keep his word and keep the TNT Championship? Or will Fuego be the one baptizing Miro with fire to forge his own golden legacy?
Matt Hardy speaks.
“Orange Cassidy, you broke my nose! Nobody breaks Big Money Matt Hardy’s nose!” Cassidy owes a debt and Hardy always collects! Freshly Squeezed has made a mockery of Hardy’s business, the pro-wrestling business, for far too long! Hardy is sick and tired of the antics, so he will take away everything that is “cool” about Cassidy, and that starts with his hair. Hardy vows to shave Cassidy’s head and make Orange Cassidy into an egghead! When and where will this Hair VS Hair match go down?
Jon Moxley & Eddie Kingston VS 2point0 w/ Daniel Garcia!
The Maniac and Mad King know Suzuki-Gun’s coming for their necks, but they’ve still got some beef to squash with Matt Lee & Jeff Parker. Will 2point0 find out they don’t rule after all?
But again, 2point0 and Daniel Garcia jump Moxley and Kingston from behind! But Moxley and Kingston are better prepared for this one and they hit back! Kingston gets mugged 2v1 while Moxley has Parker, but Kingston throws Lee into railing and fires off on Garcia! Moxley sits Parker down and BITES his forehead! The ref tries to get this in the ring as Lee attacks Kingston. Moxley puts Parker in the ring and we have a match! Parker fires hands back on Moxley, runs, but Moxley tanks the shoulder. Kingston DDT’s Lee, Moxley ROCKS Parker to then X PLEX! Parker flounders, Moxley has him in a corner and CHOPS him!
Moxley CHOPS Parker again, and then fakes Parker out to SLAP him on the back! Moxley scoops but Parker slips out to rake eyes! Tag to Lee and he runs in, but into a drop step and SNAP SAIDO! Moxley drags Lee up with a neck wrench then fish hooks AND BITES Lee’s face! Moxley lets off as the ref reprimands, and he whips Lee to ropes. Lee holds ropes and bails out but Moxley pursues. Lee gets to the ramp but Garcia rushes Moxley! Moxley throws Garcia into steel steps, only for Parker to dropkick Moxley down! Lee returns now that he has back-up and 2point0 mugs Moxley! They set Moxley up and hit a DOUBLE APRON FLAPJACK as AEW goes picture in picture!
Moxley is down, Lee gets in the ring only to refresh the count, then he takes his time bringing Moxley back up. Lee puts Moxley in the ring, Moxley flounders around and Lee stomps him down. Lee stomps Moxley at ropes, lets off as the ref counts, but Garcia talks trash. Tag to Parker as Moxley crawls to the apron and Parker drops ax handles! Garcia mockingly applauds as Parker paces in the ring. Parker drags Moxley to hit a spinning toehold! Moxley endures as Parker twists the foot, but Lee tags in to drop ax handles. Cover, TWO! Kingston is up and pissed but the ref keeps him in his corner while Lee has a chinlock on Moxley.
Lee puts Moxley in a corner and throws hands, then pushes Moxley to the corner. Tag to Parker, 2point0 mugs Moxley, then Parker snapmares. Parker wraps on a chinlock nice and tight and he grinds Moxley down. Moxley endures and Jersey rallies up. But Parker claws Moxley’s face then drops elbows! Parker wraps the chinlock back on as the ref reprimands, but Moxley starts fighting up to his feet. Moxley powers up, throws body shots and gets free to run, into a calf kick! Cover, TWO! Parker drags Moxley over, tags Lee, and 2point0 mugs Moxley again. Lee throws in elbows right to the top of Moxley’s head, then slaps him around.
Lee whips Moxley to a corner, tags Parker and then Parker runs in to forearm smash! Parker CHOPS Moxley but Moxley CHOPS back! Parker rakes Moxley’s eyes, tags Lee, and AEW returns to single picture. 2point0 botches their whip combo and Moxley BOOTS Lee! Moxley ROCKS Parker, then he staggers around. Parker gets up, Moxley fires off forearms! Moxley runs but Parker forearms him in the corner! Feed to Lee’s drop toehold, BOOYAH ELBOW DROP! Cover, TWO! Lee tags Parker, throws more elbows onto Moxley, then Parker sucker punches Kingston! Moxley back drops Parker! Lee tags in and runs, but Moxley LARIATS Lee right down!
Fans fire up, hot tag to Kingston! Kingston rallies with BIG haymakers, then he whips Lee into Parker at the corner! Kingston runs in to SPLASH SANDWICH! Kingston unleashes the MACHINE GUN CHOPS! EXPLODER for Lee but Garcia gets up on the apron. Kingston DECKS Garcia, but Parker rolls Kingston up! TWO, and Kingston URAKENS Parker right down! Lee shoves Kingston, Kingston knees low and hits a DDT! Tag back to Moxley and fans fire up again! Maniac and Mad King fire themselves up, they get Parker up, THE VIOLENT CROWN!! Cover, Moxley & Kingston win!
Winners: Jon Moxley & Eddie Kingston, by pinfall
Moxley tells Suzuki right in the camera, if they want some, they can come get it! But wait! Here comes Suzuki after all!! The song begins, will we get to hear it all? He walks out slowly onto the stage and Moxley stares him down. Suzuki still smiles despite the black eye and stiches are clear on his face. Suzuki goes down the ramp to the ring, Moxley and Kingston hold their ground, and fans get ready for the moment…! KA ZE NI NA REEEE~! And then Archer appears from the crowd side! Archer drags Kingston out of the ring and throws him into railing! Suzuki and Moxley brawl, they spill out of the ring and Moxley throws Suzuki into railing!
Archer drags Kingston into the crowd and fans are going nuts as Kingston fires off headbutts! Suzuki POSTS Moxley, Kingston stalks Archer now. Archer kicks low and bumps Kingston off railing while Suzuki and Moxley fight towards the timekeeper’s area! Suzuki blocks, Moxley blocks, Moxley bumps Suzuki off the table. They climb onto the table, they brawl with more haymakers, but Suzuki manages to power Moxley into the Gotch hold! Moxley powers out and SMACKS Suzuki with a mic! Moxley drags Suzuki around the way and has him take a seat to rain down fists! Moxley BITES Suzuki to try and reopen those stitches!
Kingston and Archer make their way back to ringside, right as Moxley and Suzuki bust through railing to fight in the crowd! Jersey is thunderous as the chaos continues all the way to Dynamite signing off! If this is how the fight starts, how will it end in New York?
Another great episode for Dynamite and this worked as a great go-home to what is apparently AEW Grand Slam week now. Even this week’s Rampage is awesome with all the set-up from tonight. Punk gets jumped by Team Taz and is going to fight Hobbs for his first TV match, and that’s going to be great stuff. Fuego is pretty gutsy for putting up his new car for the title, but I feel like Miro is just going to win again and then use Fuego’s body to beat up the car. And what great continuity for Lucha Brothers to fight Butcher & Blade and have the titles on the line. Pretty sure Lucha Brothers retain and this gets their first defense out of the way before having an extended feud with other teams.
Cole VS Kaz was a great opener, Cole had a great promo to call out Christian & Jurassic Express, and that Six Man Tag is going to be a great part of Rampage Grand Slam. The promo response from Christian and Jungle Boy was pretty good, but boy Christian took some shots at WWE and NXT. Pretty sure Super Kliq is the one winning that match. MJF had another great Heel promo, and BPJ had another great moment in running him and Wardlow off. He also had a very good interview promo with JR, though I feel like he could’ve just said that live for the crowd right there. But I can’t be too harsh on AEW, they made sure to arrange matching content, like Spears’ promo before his match with Darby.
Pinnacle overall broke even tonight. Spears VS Allin was a great match but Pinnacle got to stand tall with FTR coming back to attack and set up a tag match for next week. FTR in their own match of course won against Sydal and Dante teaming up while their usual tag partners are out of action. Meanwhile, I am actually really happy to see that after shifting Archer away from Lambert, Jericho and Hager are going after him now. Lambert continues to make me groan with his use of being toxic old fan in this reverse psychology role, but Jericho & Hager taking on Ethan Page & Scorpio Sky is going to be a lot of fun.
Gunn Club’s explanation for their Heel Turn is actually pretty logical, because they really should be up higher in the ranks when they’re undefeated in tag team and trios matches. By AEW’s own rules, these guys should’ve been in the tag title stories way sooner, but they ironically still might have to wait a bit. Andrade had a good promo to better frame his reason for ditching Chavo, and then it also implies a rematch of him and Pac that’ll be even bigger. Cargill VS Hirsch was very good but I was still hoping for a bit more. I can’t be sure who gives Cargill her first loss, but it’s probably someone closer to the women’s title.
There was good progress in the Dark Order dysfunction, and I do think the ladies should take charge and become the new leaders of the group with Uno’s ego being in question. They replayed Bryan’s promo from Rampage to set up his segment here tonight, and it was a great segment because of how heated he got with Callis and Omega. Omega VS Bryan in even just a non-title match is amazing, and it could go either way. On one hand, Bryan could win and basically earn himself a title match that way. On the other, Callis can find a way to cheat Bryan, but perhaps that upsets Omega and things get tense within The Elite for just a moment.
Moxley & Kingston had a great main event with 2point0 and Garcia, and of course Moxley & Kingston win to head for the match with Suzuki-Gun. That brawl was an awesome way to close out the night, and I can’t wait to see how brutal Moxley, Kingston, Archer and Suzuki can get, even in a standard tag match.
My Score: 9.1/10

Honestly, a lot of the first special got a lot of good ones, I’m not sure what’s left.
It’s always kind of a trip to look back even just a couple years in pro-wrestling. I forgot there was a time when Cody interacted with the rest of The Elite. Honestly, that 8 Man was a lot of fun, I wonder if we’ll ever get interactions between the Elite and Nightmare Family again. And I forgot one of Penelope’s earliest matches in AEW was such a great one with her, Britt, Riho & Yuka. I should’ve also remembered about the Cruise of Jericho having Dark matches. Also I forgot Caster had such a bad mustache when he first showed up. And I forgot how rough that Falls Count Anywhere got, like the table spot where Kip and Penelope don’t break the table but just bounce off it.
Mitchell’s AEW Dark Results & Report! (10/19/21)
Miami gets Dark!
Half a dozen for Dark in South Beach!
AEW still has more in Miami! Will Gunn Club continue their undefeated tag streak? Will Nyla Rose, Diamante & Emi Sakura be a winning combination again?
- Jamie Hayter w/ Britt Baker & Rebel VS Tiffany Nieves; Hayter wins.
- Six Man Tag: The Gunn Club VS Dean Alexander, Diamond Sheik & Alex Chamberlain; Gunn Club wins.
- Six Woman Tag: Kris Statlander, Red Velvet & Thunder Rosa VS Nyla Rose, Diamante and Emi Sakura w/ Vickie Guerrero & Lulu Pencil; Statlander, Velvet & Rosa win.
- Lance Archer VS OT Fernandez; Archer wins.
- Frankie Kazarian VS Aaron Solo w/ The Factory; Kaz wins.
- 8 Man Tag: Daniel Garcia, 2point0 & Serpentico VS The Dark Order; The Dark Order wins.
Nyla Rose, Diamante & Emi Sakura just won on Elevation, they might lose here since Statlander and Rosa are now on Velvet’s team. Gunn Club will surely win and really should be on the tag title chase after Full Gear to give credence to their story. And that 8 Man Tag looks like a lot of fun, as it’ll be Stu Grayson, Colt Cabana, Alan Angels and Preston Vance for The Dark Order.
An even 40 minutes is a nice size for this episode. Hayter makes QUICK work of Nieves, and I was right about Gunn Club of course. We got another great Six Woman Tag, and I like that there was a tiny bit of dysfunction in Nyla-Diamante-Sakura over getting after Thunder Rosa. Velvet essentially gets redemption from Elevation by winning it for her team here. And as I said with Elevation, AEW could really get their women’s tag division plans back on track at any moment. With Dynamite, Rampage, Elevation and Dark Classic, there is plenty of airtime for them to feature the women’s tag titles (or medals if they want to do that again) and can give fans reason to tune into everything.
Jade Cargill and Mark Sterling have a good promo segment to hype up the TBS Championship Tournament bracket. Jade really can come out of the tournament the champ, or even lose in the finals to then go right after Britt Baker. Hell, Jade wins the title then goes after Britt anyway to try and be AEW’s first double champion. Well, double AEW champion since we’ve seen plenty of cross-promotion champions. Archer dragging out his opponent then brutalizing him is great stuff, as was Eddie Kingston on commentary to watch that match. The Factory really needs to add more people, they’re already kinda stale at just QT, Solo and Comoroto.
And of course, that big 8 Man is the main event, no Luther is a surprise but there was still plenty of dysfunctional interaction between Serpentico, Garcia and 2point0. Angels sticking with no mask is also a surprise, but he gets a great showing for himself. I hope we get more Dark Order VS Hardy Family Office, that seemed like a promising feud. At the same time, we need to see 2point0 and the various Dark Order duos get into the tag title chase after Full Gear and on the way to Revolution.
