It’s MJF’s Gum Guy, Tony Acero, and I’m ready for AEW!

We got the roster outside, ready for the Dynamite Diamond Battle Royal! Two winners to face off for the ring.


Match 1: Dynamite Diamond Battle Royal

Everyone rushes the ring…except Scorpio Sky and Shawn Spears, who stand on either side of the outside ring and stare each other down. The other 18 men wrestle in the ring while MJF cuts an in-screen promo saying as long as he has Sammy and Wardlow behind him, he’s taking this.

MJF, Wardlow, and Sammy decide to roll outside and stand for a bit, staring. It looks like Matt Hardy eliminates his own homie Kassidy. Adam Page eliminates Serpentico with the help of Silver and it looks like Silver is appreciative, hopping on the back of Page and celebrating. Silver and Reynolds eliminate Luther and smirk to Page. MJF helps Sammy up and they team up, standing aisde Wardlow. Matt Hardy looks all kinds of lost. Sydal tries to handle the entering Spears with a kick to the head. Knee to the face to Spears. Spears with a Fireman’s into a driver over the top rope, eliminating him.

Miro has Joey Janela in the corner, and Scorpio Sky eliminates Spears!!!

Sky and Wardlow are wrasslin, and we see Tully handing something to Spears, who loads up his glove and awaits his prey on the outsid.e Scorpio is close to the ring, Spears punches him in the back of the head, and Sky topples down. Wardlow eliminates Sky, who lands at the feet of Spears. Silver gets tossed into Reynolds, and eliminates him! Matt tries for a Side Effect, Silver escapes. Matt on the apron. Quen on the shoulders of Silver, he drops off and shoves him. Matt holds the ropes, Silver is eliminated!

Kip Sabian eliminated! He pulls Orange Cassidy out of the ring under the ropes. The refs send Kip out, Miro leaves the ring and grabs Orange Cassidy. Miro sends Orange right into the ring post, face first! Miro is pissed. He re-enters, high kick to Lee Johnson! Belly to belly to Joey! Miro with a HUGE kick to the side of the head of Johnson. Miro sends Lee outside. Joey to the top rope, he dives. Miro catches him. Slams him down hard. Matt attacks from behind. Miro no-sells. Elbows to Miro. Shove to Matt. Matt kicks. Twist of NO!!! Miro lifts Matt and eliminates him! Miro sends Quen over Matt’s back. Goes for Silly String. Miro shoves Quen! ELIMINATED! He shoves Matt off the apron. Janela is next! Miro just got rid of four motherfuckers!

Miro tries to corner Jungle Boy, but Sammy, MJF, and Wardlow gang up on him from behind!!! Miro busts out of the pile of men, and he and Wardlow stare each other down. Chins jutted. Miro asks for a right hand. Wardlow gives him one. Miro gives it back. They go back and forth as MJF and Miro chill in the corner together. Lol. Seriously, they’re just layin together. Rights from Miro, sending Wardlow closer and closer to the ropes. Sammy and MJF come from behind, lock Miro up, and Wardlow beats him down on the head. Miro breaks the hold but eats a clothesline. All three men send Miro over the top rope.

We got MJF, Sammy, Wardlow and….JUNGLE BOY.

MJF calls his goons back, he wants Jungle by himself. Boot to MJF, back body drop to the apron to Sammy. Clothesline to Wardlow.

Eliminated!!!

MJF turns. Wardlow is there, ready. They high five.

BUT WHAT ABOUT ORANGE?!?!?!

Wardlow realizes Orange isn’t eliminated and heads outside, grabs Orange, and sends him back in the ring. MJF is already celebrating.

Wardlow gets Orange on his back, Orange shoves Wardlow, MJF is nearly eliminated. He is pissed. ORANGE PUNCH TO WARDLOW!!! ORANGE PUNCH TO MJF!!! ANOTHER TO WARDLOW!!! WARDLOW ELIMINATED!!!!!!

Winner: Orange Cassidy and Some Other Dude
AEW Battle Royals just hit different. Not to say there is absolutely NO senseless fighting, but there is a definite minimal amount, and they allow the stories that are currently happening to infiltrate the match itself. Aside from that, once the thinning of the herd is done, we get a next gear. Miro FINALLY has a showing worthy of his presence (something I’ve been hoping for since he debuted), Orange Cassidy does what Orange Cassidy does, and that apron sequence between Sammy and Jungle Boy was just a thing of beauty. A great start.
Total Rating: **************5/18

Kaz brings it back, they go at it until Jericho sends Kaz into the barricade. Jericho steps on the chest of Kaz, flexes, then grabs the legs for a catapult into the bottom rope. Jericho distracts the Edwards long enough for Ortiz to scrape the forehead of Kaz. Jericho grabs him and sends Kaz into the corner face first. Right hands form both men, on the knees, in the middle of the ring. WE go back to full screen and Jericho is appreciating the love of the crowd. He turns to Kaz, grabs the head, and chops kaz.

Winner: Chris Jericho
Interesting to see these guys who have been wrestling for roughly the same amount of time, yet Kaz look so much smoother and quicker than Jericho. The Inner Circle story seems rushed, but I think that’s just because they’re all so good, we don’t really want it to end. This was, seemingly, the plan anyway. I enjoyed the spurts of high action, namely from kaz, that really gave the match a good flow.

Match Time: ***

Jericho celebrates with his people, but SAMMY SHOVES MJF!!! Hager and Wardlow get into it. Evryone is goin at it till Jericho grbs a mic, says stop this shit. He’s had enough. This is not what they planned. He says they got 7 days to think about this. Next week, we’ll have an ultimatum. Either they work together as a team, or The Inner Circle breaks up forever.

Backstage, Marvez is with Young Bucks. They ask if he remembers when they kicked him in the face, for no reason. Anyway, Matt says they are fighting champions, and they’re giving a shot to TH2

In come The Acclaimed, who say they have arrived, and want to review their new book. We get a freestyle that is so not John Cena.

In come Angelico and Jack Evans for the attack! HARD punch to the face of Matt as Nick gets tossed into the garbage, just like this segment should have been.

Daniels and Kazarian come for the save. Why?

Winner: Britt Baker
I know Britt’s finisher is the submission, but I’ve always disliked a “wrestler’s wrestler” that taps out. I won’t hold that against them, as I know it’s a personal thing, and Britt is way higher up on the food chain.

A video package of cold weather across the world shoes, and it’s…..STING!

STING walks over to Arn, looks him dead in the eyes, turns to Dustin, goes eye to eye with him, then to Cody. Sting, finally, heads to Darby. Darby stands. They go eye to eye.

The crowd is hyped. I am…indifferent.

BACK TO THE SHOW, and Marvez is talking to Shida. She calls out Abadon, saying she is just doing zombie cosplay. Some clattering is heard off screen, and Hikaru hightails it.

Moxley gets some promo time, saying two years ago, this was just an idea. The whole world wrote him off. He took his hand and bitch slapped the professional wrestling world across the mouth. He and Omega have been destined to be rivals. They want the same thing. They are the two best in the world. Tonight, they battle with swords on top of a mountain. It’s a long way down. Stakes couldn’t be higher. Contracts have been signed and winter is coming.

Winner: Kenny Omega
JEEESSSUUUSSS! This was truly one of those matches where the first few minutes was a little on the slow side, but without those slow minutes,the impactful finishing minutes may not have had such a solid impact. Omega and Moxley put on a fucking clinic, especially in the second half. I really didn’t like the inclusion of Don, the mic shot, etc, BUT it seems like there is more to this story, and not some unplanned one off for the shock factor. Time will tell, but as a strictly wrestling match….geez. Hell of a main event.
Total Rating: ****
Match Time: 28:36

Callis raises the hand of Omega, then runs out of the ring with Omega, moving quickly!!! They head to the back, and people are asking what the hell to the running Omega. He and Don leave the arena as Tony claims BULLSHIT.

We try to stop Don and Kenny by their car, but Don says if you wanna know what’s going on, find out next Tuesday. BUT DYNAMITE IS ON WEDNESDAY!?!?!

Eddie Kingston is on the mic, but we can only hear him. He says he isn’t waiting for next week; he wants Lance Archer now.
