The AEW Dynamite Score

A weekly recap and review of pro wrestling’s hottest new international promotion.

“Surprises are great for birthdays and Christmas. Other than that, they stink”–Cots Shannon

Yes, my grandfather gets the credit for that one. A lot of his philosophies have become part of my thinking.

Roll the coll new opening montage!

Jim Ross was back at the announce deak. He was joined by Tony Schiavone and Excalibur. The ringside area was crammed full of various wrestlers, both face and heel.

“Muder Hawk” Lance Archer attacked someone backstage and dragged him to the ring. We saw the vicious attack on Brandi Rhodes, last week. Jake Roberts said he was told to apologize for his action. “As soon as she kisses my *ss, she (Brandi) will get one”. Jake said the ring was their world and anyone who doesn’t need to be there are risking their health. Jake went all chauvanistic with his thoughts on what women are good for. Jake warned Cody that The Amreican Nightmare’s time is almost up.

Jake was cut off by a truck engine. It was Cody and he drove into ringside. Cody jupmed out and went wild on Lance. Cody tried to get to Roberts but Lance stopped him. Cody was limping. Archer ran into the ring post. Cody puncehed away. Cody escaped a Chokeslam but a Leg Sweep took him down. Cody choked Archer with his own ponytail. Chair to Lance’s face. Big Boot by Archer. Cody escaped the Blackout nad Claw. Lance countered the Cody Cutter. Jake held his man back as Cody tore off his shirt. Mind games at their very best. Jake took Lance to the back.

Brodie Lee will battle Christopher Daniels, in our main event. Jericho will face “Pineapple Pete” (Suge D). MJF is back. Femme Fatale Four Way plus so much more.

Jericho asked V1 if he wnted to join the Inner Circle. No answer. Jericho said he now had a sixth member…Floyd the baseball bat. Jericho destroyed the drone with the bat. That was just silly.

Matt Hardy limped to the ring to find his “friend” shattered. This is NOT a good thing for the Inner Circle, bet on it. Matt cliutched the broken drone like one of his kids. Off to commercial.

We looked back at the attack by the Dark Order and theft of the AEW World Title belt by Brodie Lee. Moxley is beyond ticked off. The announcers ran down what we can expect, next week.

Christopher Daniels vs Brodie Lee

Scorpio Sky and Frankie Kazarian came to the ring with Daniels. I am still waiting on a major swerve in this one. I am so waiting for Daniels to turn out to be the “REAL” leader of the Dark Order. That’s how I would book it. We will see, after the berak

Several of the Dark Order escorted their Exalted Leader to the ring. He handed the AEW title to one of his flunkies. Lee said something to the ring announcer.

Lee came out and corrected the ring announcer’s announcement. The rest of the Dark Order were around the ring. Moxley came through the “crowd” to get his title back. Mox started attacking everyone in sight, especially “10″. Mox demanded a microphone. He admired guts and going after an opportunity. He would not suffer such an insult. Mox warned Lee that he would pay…with interest.

Mox promoised a “Hailstorm of Violence” that might well end Brodie Lee’s career. Mox attacked another member of the Dark Order and threw a chair at him.
