They are calling this show “Saturday Night Dynamite”. Has a cool ring to it, don’t you think?

Roll tlhe opening montage!

FTR vs Private Party

Tully Blanchard is now the advisor of Dax and Cash. We saw a flashback to the craziness of last week’s Tag Team Appreciation Night. Side Headlock by Dax on Marq. SHoulder Tackle into a Universal. Dax reversed a HIp Toss into one of his own. Dropkick on both FTR members. Isiah Cassidy also got involved. Tully had a strategy session with his new charges.

Dax went to the eyes of Marq. Tag to Cash Wheeler. I like Tully’s new jacket. Reminds me of the daysof the legendary Jimmy Hart. Tag to Isiah. Tag back to Marq. Both members of Private Party worked over the arm of Dax. Double team by Private Party. 1-2-no.

Next week, AEW will air on Thursday night. Marq went out to get Dax but the ref stopped him. Tag to Cash. Marq continued to dominate until a Double Clothesline laid him out. Cash choked Marq on the opes and then tagged out to Dax. Double Team by FTR. Boot Rake by Dax. Marq’s face was dragged across the top rope.

Sunset Flip Clothesline combo by FTR. Brutal Rear Chin Lock by Cash on the almost knocked out Marq Quen.

Back Drop Suplex by Marq. Tag to Dax, who blocked the corner from Marq. Quen was chunked out of the ring. Isiah finally got the Hot Tag and exploded on everyne not in Private Party. Springboard Cutter to give Isiah a deuce. Dax blocked a Suplex and went for a Blanchard Slingshot Suplex. It failed. Marq got the tag and hit a Crossbody to ALMOST get the 3. Cash took out Isiah and Dax with a Roll Up. Marq came back with a Small Package for two. Backslide by Dax for two. Tag to Cash. Universal into an Anderson Spinebuster. 2 count, thanks to Marq getting involved.

Isiah threw Dax outside. Tully pulled his man out of the way of the Plancha. Cash threw Marq intot he ring post. Goodnight Express!

Your Winners: FTR
Dynamite Score: 88 out of a possible 100

Tully was so proud of his new team.

Jon Moxley cut a promo against MJF. Mox didn’t care about what people were saying about him. Mox didn’t care for people who always talk about how great they are. Mox said he didn’t have to hide behind words. His actions speak much louder than anything that comes out of his mouth. Mox knew his time in the business will have its limits. Mox really insulted MJF and promised to beat the Hell out of MJF at the next PPV. Mox was ready to expose what MJF has been hiding.

MJF was back to give his views on the current state of AEW. He was unhappy, to say the least. He compared Dictator Jon to some of the worst people in history. He was offenced that Jon attacked him from behind. MJF was wearing a neck brace. He whined about maybe not being able to play with his future children. He blamed that all on Moxley. It was almost laughable. Mark Sterling, the lawyer, stepped in and talked about how dangerous the Paradigm S hift is. Five Million people (supposedly) signed the petition. Now, the Paradigm Shift will be banned at the Title Match at the next big show. Streling threatened to sue Mox for everything he has, except the World title, which would go to MJF.

Eddie Kingston came to the ring and tried to unite the teams that were just griping at each other. Eddie read all four men the riot act for being like this. Eddie sounded like the gang leader (Cyrus) from “The Warriors” as he did his best to unify the four men under his guidance.

Dr. Britt Baker went off on Penelope Ford and Kip Sabian for swapping spit while playing tonsil hockey. Baker asked them to help her with Big Swole and she would give them some freebies. Britt wanted Penelope to join her team. Rebel was told she would do Penelope’s make-up for a year.

Tony Schiavone talked about Orange Cassidy’s win over Chris Jericho, last week. Trent and Chuck Taylor came out with the best bud. This was Orange’s first interview. Tony confratulated Orange on his huge win.

Before Orange could open his mouth, Chris Jericho strolled from the back. I would SO wear that wild jacket, even to church on Sunday morning. Ok, maybe not there but most everywhere else. I’d take Prissy to dinner and look so good. LOL. Jericho congratulated Orange for his win. Jericho has only been pinned three times since AEW came to TNT and he was proud that one of those who did it was Orange. Jericho did want to toast Orange but they needed a third match to determine who is the best, first. Jericho took credit for Money in the Bank. Jericho wants a Mimosa Mayhem Match. They ran a video package about what the match will be. 80 gallons of Orange Juice will be mixed with 500 bottles of “A Little bit of the Bibbly”. To win, there must be a pinfall or submission…OR throwing an opponent into the huge vat of liquid. Orange was asked if he accepted. He just gave a Thumbs Up. Jericho called out his buddies in the Inner Circle. Jericho sent his boys to destroy the Best Friends and Orange. Judas Effect to the jaw of Orange by Jericho. They held Orange up and drenched him in champagne, while they held him upside down. Jericho slapped Orange and then the Inner Circle stood over Cassidy.

Coffin Drop by Ricky to add insult to injury.

Sammy Guevara came out for another video board thing. It was another shot at Matt Hardy. Matt Hardy eventually came out and just destroyed Sammy. So glad I set the timer to run long, since the basketball game ran long. Matthew found a chair but the refs took it away from him. That was one ugly scene to watch. Hardy said it wasn’t over til he ended it.

Thunder Rosa, the NWA Women’s title holder, came to AEW to help boost the Women’s division tothe next level. She wants a title match against Shida for the AEW title.
