It’s Wednesday…you know what that means.

JR welcome us tp AEW, the lights go out, the crowd cheers, and here comes Cody Rhodes!

Damn, QT gets the jobber entrance?

Before the straps are wrapped, Cody dives out of the ring into QT. He rolls QT in the ring and we start the match.

He chokes Cody up, dropping him to his knees, and drags him to a corner. Tag to 1 corner, but Cody tags it after. QT to the 2nd, Cody gets the 2nd as well.

Cody rolls outside. QT rolls outside on the other side of the post. QT pulls, Cody blocks, and Cody pulls QT into the post. Cody shakes the hand of a kid as Arn cheers him on. Cody rolls into the ring. Cody drags QT up towards the apron, and QT is bloodied. He enters the ring. Cody tags the corner. When he hits the 2nd one, the lights go out. Cody is confused. He tags the third. QT pulls, backbreaker into a Flatliner! QT shakes off the blood. QT lifts Cody up to his knees, hits a hard right to the forehead. QT whips Cody across the back with the strap, hooks the head and drags Cody to the corner. QT hangs Cody up but Cody grabs the strap and swings upward to smack QT. Cody to the apron. Right hand to the chest. Cody climns to the 2nd rope and chokes cody up. Cody hits a righ hand to the face, hops up, but QT hits a powerbomb off the 2nd rope!! QT tags a corner.

QT wraps Cody up with the straps, lifts him up onto the corner and pulls Cody out for a cutter. He hits it! The 2nd one. QT gets to the 3rd one. He reaches for the 4th, Cody pulls, QT kicks, and QT’s gotta start over.

A strap across the back of Cody. Cody stands up, no selling it. Another smack from QT. Cody screams. One across the chest, another. Cody with a clohelsine. A pump kick. Right hand, another, into the corner, toss into the center of the ring, Cody hups up and takes QT down with head scissors. Smack across the back of QT. Another. A third, and crowd is loving it. Cody hits the corner, rushes up to the top, flies off with a cutter!Cody tags, gets to three. He’s about to hit the 4th, but QT has pulled the strap!

QT’s standing, spits in the face of Cody, Cody with Cross Rhodes! Doesn’t release, hits another. A THIRD CROSS RHODES!!! Cody hits all four posts to win the match!

Winner: Cody Rhodes
I’m not 100% sure what the point of a Cody win is, but I’m also still not 100% sure as to why I don’t like it. I suppose it’s the reality that the energy they put behind QT ultimately resulted in nothing more than someone for Cody to beat. This isn’t the worst thing possible, but it does seem more unnecessary than a Cody loss could be or do.

Earlier Today, Shawn Spears talk about the second greatest chair shot he let out in AEW last week. The question is why; but look at Spears, and look at Sammy. The real reason is Sammy’s ego. He told Sammy he would get him


Sammy comes into frame, says “Gotcha, bitch. This is far, far from over.”

WE ARE BACK, and Tony is in the middle of the ring. He introduces YOUR World Champion Kenny Omega. Omega comes out with Callis.

Don doesn’t want Tony to speak, he tells him to go wait in the corner. Seems like a great time to give everyone a history lesson, says Don, because the last several months, they have made history.

YOU GOT FIRED chant to Don.

Don says real men don’t quit, they get fired. Kenny Omega defeated Jon Moxley. Kenny Omega defeated the great Rey Fenix. Omega defeated Jungle Boy. He and Omega have won so many titles around the world, they had to get an entourage just to transport the belts. All of us fans are in the presence of greateness, the shadow of the God of pro-wrestling. But he was away for a week and he comes back to realize there’s a big problem – they’ve beaten everyone. There is no one left, which presents a problem. It’s a desperate situation.


Don is here to tell us what we won’t, but Dark Order’s music cuts off.

Here’s Evil Uno and he cohorts. Uno says he has spent the last few minutes listen to Omega and his weird uncle talk, and he has some questions. Uno wants to know why Omega is ignoring the crowd. Why is he ignoring the #1 ranked wrestler. Why is he so afraid of Evil Uno’s friend?

Omega says Uno’s got a lot of questions. Omega has a question, what’s the capital of Thailand. BANG with a nut shot.

Here come Gallows and Anderson to attack Dark Order. They hold Evil Uno up ready for a belt shot, until the music of Hangman hits. He entesr and attacks! He beats on The Good Brothers, sends Anderson over the top rope, then sends Gallows over after. Page hops on the apron, Omega in the ring. He turns. Page stops on the apron, stares Omega down. Page enters the ring. They go face to face. Anderson on the apron, distracts, Page sends him off, Omega runs away.

WE HEAD TO BACKSTAGE where JR is sitting on a chair with Darby and Ethan on either side of him. He tells both men he is disgusted and uneasy. They have both talked about ending careers. This is sad.

Ethan says theres nothing really sad about it, maybe Darby deserves it? Why, asks JR.

Ethan is about to talk, but Darby speaks up. His first year in wrestling was Ethan’s 12, and this fact, Ethan couldn’t stand it. Darby has no walls of complacency. He was homeless, living in his car, look at Ethan. It’s not Darby’s fault Ethan got married, never left his hometown, and had kids. Darby left everything. Ethan was the big fish in the little pond. He cant stand Darby made it before him, he couldn’t stand.

Ethan says Darby didn’t lie. He skipped the line. If it wasn’t for Ethan, Darby would still be living in his car. Ethan plucked him from obscurity. Those checks Darby cashed, its all owed to Ethan. It drives him insane that every day, people have told him that he’d be a star, making money, and he’s got to watch a little runt and kid paint his face up to hide the fact that without Ethan, Darby would be nothing. He brought Darby into this wrestling business, and he will take him out.

JR closes them out, saying he doesn’t have an easy feeling about this. Ethan says he shouldn’t.

Match 2: FTR and Wardlow vs Santana, Ortiz, and Jake Hager

Takedown by Santana to Dax, Santana up, attacks the forehead, again, whip to Dax. Another whip. Dropkick out the corner. Clothelsine from Dax. Dax misses a clothesline, locks the head, hits a suplex, floats over for another, gets a GERMAN for a third supelx! Santana rushes the crner, hits an elbow, tag to Ortiz. Whip to the ropes, Leg lariat, Santana hops up the back and hits a moonsault, Ortiz hooks up for a Northern Lights. Cover for 1….NO!!! Dax with a chop. Tag to Cash. Cash in over the top, hops over the back, catches Ortiz in the air and hits a pweorslam. Cover for 1…..NO!!! Right hand and a tag to Wardlow. He sends Ortiz into the corner. Wardlow gutwrenches into a powerbomb! Cover for 1..2…N!O!! Dax with a rope-asisted, no Ortiz lands on his feet, locks up behind, Dax reveres, STO to Dax! He lifts up for. Powerbobmb, hits it with a sitout!!! Santana kicks him in the face. Hager enters the ring, knocks off Cash and Wardlow. Hager Bomb in the corner!!! BELLY TO BELLY TO CASH! Clothesline to Cash! Another to Dax!!!

We are back, and Santana rols to tag in Ortiz. Wheler still in the ring. Ortiz with an elbow, another, enziguri to Wardlow. Kick from Cash. Whip to the corner. Ortiz hops over, in comes Hager to hit a splash, kick to Cas in the corner, Poetry in motion from Santana. Whip to Hager and he drops Cash on the floor hard. Cover for 1..2…N!O!!

Winners: The Pinnacle
A nice win for the bad guys, and a sick match to boot. Gave us enough to want more, which is interesting considering we’ve seen Pinnacle and Inner Circle go at quite a few times.
Total Rating: ***1/2
Match Time:8:56

Konnan stupidly enters the ring to attack Wardlow from behind with a sock full of shit. Tully trips him up lol. Pinnacle leaves happy while Ortiz and Santana check on Konnan.

Karl Anderson gets a promo to talk about the IWGP US Championship and how the fact that Moxley has it makes him sick. He will defend it next week against Anderson.

The Standoff is NEXT

MJF is already out. Jericho’s music hits and MJF tells them to cut it off real quick, then calls the crowd white trash. Here they are, he’s beaten Jericho twice, and he’s here begging. It’s sad. He desont blame Jericho, everyone wants the rub.

Jericho says he should have just let that fat bastard come in here and beat MJFs ass is what he should have done, but he’s Chris Jericho. He wont back down from them. He’ll except any stip, he’ll stand in front of a truck; he’ll swim in a lake, he’ll even have sex with MJF’s mother.

Jericho pauses, then says AGAIN.

MJF says these people want him to be rattled, and that’s not going to happen. It’s a shame they got here; MJF used to look up to Jericho. He followed Jericho his entire career.

He remembers when Jericho was at odds with Jon Moxley. Remember that? What did he put Jon through in order to get a match with Jericho? He had to order every person in The Inner Circle. Karma sucks, he wants to do what MJF does best and make what Jericho does better.

Jericho will have five labors, like Hercules. Jericho will have to win these matches back to back, with stips in each match, and the fifth stip will be Jericho vs MJF one more time, and when MJF beats him for a third time, hopefully he will understand that MJF is better than him. So what say you, Hercules?

Jericho says if he can’t withstand his Labors of Jericho, and if he can’t beat MJF, maybe he doesn’t deserve to be in AEW. Jericho says he is the God of Battle, the God of Thunder, the God of War, and he will beat MJF. And ruin his life the way MJF tried to ruin Jericho’s.

Jericho signs

MJF yells for him to wait; this ain’t over, before he leaves, MJF doesn’t come from a dumpster fire like Miami. He comes from Long Island, and there, a deal is not done until both parties shake hands.

They shake, and Jericho hits a Judas Effect cheap shot.

Britt Baker is with Tony backstage, saying she was forced to take part in this match, which she wanted not part of. The only positive her was that Britt got a win, but at what cost? Look at Reba? She was hurt. Khan should feel terrible. She makes him millions, draws him millions. For what? So Vickie can bring Andrade. Reba’s knee exploded, and she almost died, but hey, you have Andrade, so enjoy your blood money. Maybe next week, AEW can run in Saudi Arabia!


Andrade comes out lookin like Black Mask from Batman lore.

Match 3: Matt Sydal vs Andrade El Idolo

Lockup to start. Andrade backs matt into the corner, Matt comes out of the corner, gains wrist control, spins to the back, Andrade hooks the hips, twists and twirls, Matt rolls him up for a 1…NO!!

I know some people love those debuting squash matches that we may be accustomed to in the WWE, but I, for one, LOVE a debuting wrestler to give me more than 5 minutes of good shit, and that’s what this was.

Matt Hardy and Christian Cage get a video package, with each dudes getting some good digs in.

IN THE RING, Tony is holding the mic for Arn Anderson.

Tony says must be good for head coach Arn. Arn says it is great to be in Miami tonight. They’ve missed the crowd. Arn wants to just get right to it.

The lights go out.

They come back on.


Cody enters the ring to protect Arn. He’s a little late.

Tommy End, so says Excalibur, drops his guard, and Cody steps forward. Another Black Mass, and we get confirmation that he will be going by Malachi Black.

Black shows a bruised right side of his face with a white contact covering his white eye.

Earlier Tonight, Ricky Starks is in the ring with his own paid for security to explain he is not cleared to compete. Tazz came out to clal it embarrassing, but Ricky stops him and says Cage doesn’t know the meaning of teammate, and if that means protecting himself, then after he becomes the FTW champ, he will party like one. Where he is from ,the W stands for wife, and he’s talking about Cage’s wife.

Cage came out to chase Starks away, but first he takes care of some security. I’m glad I missed that segment, because it seemed kind of rough.

Match 4: Mixed Tag Match
The Bunny and The Blade vs Kris Statlander and Orange Cassidy

We are getting the woman v woman and men v men rules. Aubrey checks Blade, and she finds some knuckles. Bunny gets in the face of Orange, shows him her L.

We go to the crowd where Dan Lambert wants to talk to Amanda Nunes, but no one said anything about doing an interview or endorsing the show. He was skeptical as an old school fan. He was skeptical for one reason, and that reason is that AEW sucks.

He thanks Tony for his offer, but if he wants to enjoy wrestling, he’d have to break out the old VHS, go back to the 70s and 80s. Guys like Eddie Graham and Valentine, Funk and Race and Brisco and Rhodes. After Rick Rude, he’d have to turn it off. Wrestling has gone downhill since 1990s, and this product is unwatchable. But Tony said AEW is doing in the right way, they have a locker room representing every genre from Lucha to Strong Style, a mix of veterans to go along with the up and comers. Then Khan smiled, the best thing they got is their fanbase.

He says that he’s 90 minutes into the show, and he’s gotta say, to always trust your instincts.

Out comes Archer!!! He clocks Lambert, then hits the Blackout! Lol.
