Earlier today, we had a press conference with FTR and Santana and Ortiz. Dax says the four of them came from poverty, and he respects his opponents as wrestlers, but not as men.

Ortiz says while FTR were off playing pattycake elsewhere, they’ve been here since day 1. They are just a pit stop on their way to tag team gold.

Santana stands up, grabs his mic, takes a pic of his mother out of his jacket at 15 after having him. Next pic is a shithole in the Bronx. The next is his mom taking slumlords to court.

Dax say the only thing left to do July 28 is show up and beat their ass.

Loved Santana’s moment, but the follow up minimized the impact.

WE ARE BACK and Andrade El Idolo. He’s got a homie with him, holding onto some contract, maybe.

Andrade takes the mic from Tony, tells him to chill. He says before we start, he has a surprise for everyone.

Tony introduces the new executive consultant to Andrade….

CHAVO GUERRERO!

HE gives some love to Dallas, TX. He hears this is the place to be. AEW. When he walked backstage, he couldn’t believe all the talent. Wow. What a great time to be a wrestling fan. But with all due respect to everyone backstage, he doesn’t see anyone that has as much talent as Andrade…

Andrade is cut off by….

DEATH TRIANGLE!!!

FENIX IS BACK!!!!!

Pac says Death Triangle hides from no one.

Andrade talks directly to Fenix. He says he is good, but with Andrade, he would be great. Andrade says he is elite, he is a superstar.

Chavo knows Pac doesn’t understand, so he’ll explain it. They are all talented, everyone knows it, but when he looks at at their waist, it’s not shiny enough. It should be, though. In order to change that, listen to Andrade.

Andrade tells Penta and Fenix he has a question; why do they work for Pac? He says now they work for Andrade.

Pac grabs the mic, says he isn’t sure what planet Andrade is on. Penta and Fenix don’t work for him. They are a team, a family, a brotherhood.

Fenix tells Andrade they are family, and they are the real face of the Latinos.

Penta says…why would they want to join a group with Andrade, when he’s not even on their level.

Death Triangle rush the ring. Andrade tells them to chill. He says everyone works for Andrade. Just look. Refs come down to stop Death Triangle, giving the impression that maybe they work for him?

Not the BEST segment, with Chavo trying to hard to get the return pop and not letting his guy be the star. Too much Spanish that was said only to be translated, doubling the time, and Andrade coming off disjointed.
BUT REY FENIX IS BACK!!!!
lol

QT Marshall is backstage with Marvez and his crew. Why is Marvez nervous? He didn’t disrespect QT. He says he will apologize next week to Tony.


Match 5: The Blade vs Orange Cassidy

Orange is behind Blade!! He taps his shoulder then attacks!! Goes for Orange Punch, but Blade leaves the ring. He rolls back in and Orange follows, only to get stomped. Orange rolls over and mounts with some punches, hits the ropes, hops over, hits the ropes again, and Blade goes to the corner, favoring his knee. Bunny goes to check on his knee and tells Orange to get back. Ref is talking to Orange. Blade stnds up and he is playing Possum! He rushes round the ring and kicks Orange in the face, then locks the head and goes for a move, but STUNDOG MILLIONAIRE is hit!! Orange to the apron! Chop from Blade on the top rope. He pulls the leg out from Orange. Blade locks the hips, gutwrench, and powerbomb ONTO THE BUCKLE!!! HOLY SHIT!!!

End Show

8.5
The final score: review Very Good
The 411
What a blast! Tonight's episode was much more focused and driven with both finite endings to some programs and continuations that made me excited for more. While I never got to experience the Jericho with the face paint, I could tell it's a nice change of pace, and means we may be getting some bad assert next week, even if the comments would have me believe that this Gage guy belongs nowhere near a TV camera. Orange, my boy, showed up, and showed out, and the return of Rey Fenix had me pop, even if that segment dragged a little and gave Chavo too much time for Chavo and not enough time for Andrade. Tonight flew by, with wrestling that was solid and storyline progression that made sense and still kept me wanting more. Just another great week of wrestling on the AEW side of things.
