It’s Wednesday, you know what that means…

Hey folks! Welcome to AEW Dynamite coverage for tonight! I’m Jeremy — you know me — and I’m covering the first little bit for Tony while he gets a few things sorted. Tonight is Dynamite, you know the deal, no reason to get fancy here; let’s just do it.

As a reminder, the GoFundMe for Larry’s daughters is still active and if you can make a donation, that would be awesome. Thank you so much to everyone who’s done so thus far.

Darby Allin, Sting, and Orange Cassidy vs Kip Sabian, The Butcher and The Blade

Cassidy starts against Sabian, and they lock up. Some counter-wrestling, Cassidy into the ropes, he counters a hip toss with an armdrag and ends up out of the ring. Cassidy back in and sends Sabian out. Back in and Cassidy takes down Sabian, who tags in Butcher. Butcher then tags in Sting.

Butcher talks trash and nails Sting, who no-sells. Another shot no-sold, and the third is blocked. Sting with strikes and kicks, but Butcher backs Sting in the corner and manhandles hi, biting his forehead and then knocking Cassidy and Darby off the apron. He dives at Sting who moves, and Sting with the Stinger Splash. He goes for a Scorpion Deathlock and Blade & Sabian run in. Butcher and Blade double suplex Sting, Sabian goes up top — but Sting does an Orange roll across the ring, so Sabian walks to the other side. And String Orange rolls to the other side, tagging in Darby!

Last week, MJF cut a cake covered promo on the other three pillars. Darby gets some quick notes on being him, Jungle Boy talks about being a champion on his own, while Sammy Guevara says winning his title is his destiny. MJF, covered in frosting, says this isn’t how things work around here. They all have to become number one contenders, and it wont happen, because they all suck.

Kenny Omega and El Hijo El Vikingo video package.

We are informed by commentary that Brandon Cutler sent a text to Excalibur accusing The BCC of attacking The Young Bucks.

After the match, the music of FTR hits and out they come. The Gunn Club ask for the music to be cut. They say no one wants to see FTR. Cash Wheeler tells the boys to calm down, they are not here to fight, they want to talk business. Colten says they don’t like FTR, they don’t respsect them, they are losers. Austin says there is nothing they can say that will make them give a title shot up.

Cash says what if they never challenge again if they lose. Cash says they will never tag together in AEW again if they lose. Austin, again, says nothing they can offer. Dax takes the mic, says ok, fine, if they cant beat them and win the AEW Tag Team Titles, they’ll quit AEW.

The Gunns ask for confirmation. Dax says yes. DEAL. The Gunns offer a handshake, then spit in the face of FTR.

Jade Cargill is backtage with Renee, and she is pissed. She has a cease and desist order for Taya, saying she is no longer able to use The Jaded. Leila wants to deliver the contract personally on Friday.

Jade: “Welcome to ‘That Bitch Show.’” Maybe workshop that a bit, yeah?

The Firm is here, and Stokely Hathaway is out in some Nation of Domination looking gear.

After Hook’s entrance, Stokely says he spoke to “Dr. Simpson” and he is not medically cleared to wrestle. He also wants to announce his retirement. He has a doctor’s note for Justin Roberts to read. It’s a receipt for Wingstop that says, “He is Sick.” Bryce calls for the bell.

Hook turns, and Stokely runs out of the ring. He leaves through the crowd. Hook follows! He rushes towards the steps and grabs him, then sends Stokely into the steps and drags him down to the barricade then up and over. Hook hops over, Stokely runs with an uppercut. Stokes jumps up, gets caught, and we get a t-bone suplex! Hook sends Stoke into the ring. Hook lifts the apron and grabs…a steel barricade. He slides this into the ring and follows. The Firm is watching this backstage and Ethan Page hilariously says, “We didn’t practice any hardcore!” lol.

Backstage, Matt Hardy tries to talk Ethan Page into fighting Hook. Page says to sign it up.

Adam Cole is here, BAYBAY!!!

The crowd is very pro-Cole.

We are seven days away from making his in-ring return. He feels freaking great. He knows everyone has questions, the biggest being who is his opponent on March 29.

Before he can answer, music hits and out comes Daniel Garcia.

He looks like Arnold Schwarzenegger in Terminator’s twin. By twin, I mean Danny DeVito. He says he has become a locker room leader. As a leader, he felt it was his duty to not just welcome Cole back but to also put him in his place. While Cole was playing stupid video games on Twitch, Garcia has racked up a bunch of wins. Brody King, Ricky Starks, Bryan Danielson. He has been the lifeblood that pumps through this company, and he is supposed to respect Cole? Where is his welcome. He’s been doin this. He’s one of the best pro-wrest….he means sprots-etnertainers on the planet today! So if that’s what he is, what makes Cole so special.

Cole says when they ring the freaking bell is what makes him special. Listen, he likes Garcia, seriously. He’s really really good, and some day he can be the guy to lead the charge, but his problem is the company he keeps. The JAS has done a great job of giving him a false sense of security and over-confident, but even Cole not wrestling for nine months, he is still Adam Cole. He is a multi-time World Champ, traveled the globe fought and beaten the very best, in fact he sat at home hoping and praying looking for a second chance, and it looks like he found it. If Garcia is crazy enough to want to challenge him next week, then you’re on. Cole vs Garcia, next week. But let’s remind Garcia that this is not just a return, it’s a statement that one of the best is back. Next week will be great for him, or the fans, but not so much for Garcia. See ya next week. BOOM.

Backstage, Kenny Omega and Don Callis are arguing. Kenny is worried about his best friends. He should have been with them. Don says he has a match tonight. Injuries happen. Those two kids going to the hospital might be the best thing that could have happen. It allows for focus. Kenny is back! Those kids will be fine in a few months. Don turns to Marvez, saying The God of Pro Wrestling is back and tonight, it starts on Dynamite.

The Blackpool Combat Club is here to fight!

Jon Moxley vs Stu Grayson

Stu starts with the chops!! Jon with a kick corners Stu, then hits a forearm and steps on his chest. Stu locks the head, takeover. Jon locks the fingers, Stu pushes up out of a few pins.

Stu avoids it, sends Jon into the chair, rana to Jon. Hard chop in the corner. Knee to Jon, Stu hits a knee, whips reverse, Stu hops over Jon, Saito Suplex! Stu to the apron, and Jon hits the ropes then tackles him! Stu goes flying into the barricade outside!

Winner: Jon Moxley
Some of this wasn’t pretty, but I get the impression that’s what they were going for. I love Stu, so I’m biased, and seeing him go toe-to-toe with Jon didn’t upset me in the slightest.

Moxley, rather than attacking as per usual, leaves as he sees the numbers are even with Dark Order and his team.

Backstage, Renee is chillin with Ricky Starks. He is tired of no action, all talk. He had to take time off his vacation early just to tell Juice that he didn’t like how he was attacked two weeks ago.
