Dynamite was entertaining but haunting, as the Wrestlers performed from an empty arena. With the reveal of Brodie Lee as the Dark Order’s Exalted One, and Matt Hardy, AEW put on the best show the could have, given the circumstances.
The Lucha Bros: Rey Fenix and Pentagon Jr. vs. Best Friends: Trent and Chuck Taylor w/ “Freshly Squeezed” Orange Cassidy: Lucha Bros scored the win with a Double Stomp Package Piledriver, but Penta had to hit Trent with a low blow before setting up the finish.
Penelope Ford w/ “Superbad” Kip Sabian vs. Riho vs. Kris Statlander vs. Hikaru Shida: Shida’s deadly Running Knee found the face of Ford to put the Superbad Girl down for the count.
The Butcher and The Blade vs. Jurassic Express: Luchasaurus and Jungle Boy: Jurassic Express hit the Assisted Cutter on Blade to earn a hard-fought win.
Inner Circle: Santana, Ortiz, and Jake Hager w/ Sammy Guevara vs. Matt Jackson, “Hangman” Adam Page w/ Kenny Omega, and “The American Nightmare” Cody w/ Arn Anderson: Jackson called for a Meltzer Driver with Hangman Page but the two couldn’t click. Santana capitalized and rolled the elder Jackson brother up to give Inner Circle the advantage in the upcoming Blood and Guts match.
