With a nice balance of in-ring action and promo, this week’s AEW Dynamite was mid-card heavy, but there was plenty of fun to be had.
CM Punk vs. Bobby Fish: We knew Punk was going to win, but Fish was awesome. He worked over Punk with Dragon Screws and leg-centered offense before Punk won with the GTS.
TNT Champion Sammy Guevara vs. Ethan Page: Guevara wanted to fight and Page absolutely gave him one. Guevara ended up stealing one with smart pinning combination off a counter of The Ego Edge. After the match, Page and Scorpio Sky beat on Guevara until The Inner Circle made the save.
TBS Title Tournament: Serena Deeb vs. Hikaru Shida: Deeb continues to put on excellent matches and a more aggressive Shida was a treat to watch. This was the match of the night at that point. Deeb nearly won after an Eye Gouge, but Shida was able to reverse a pinning combination into one of her own. After the win, Deeb beat on Shida with a chair and locked in Serenity.
AEW World Title Eliminator Tournament: 10 vs. Jon Moxley: 10 tried, but Moxley ripped off his mask, bit him and won with the Double-Arm DDT.
The Dark Order: Evil Uno, Stu Grayson, John Silver and Colt Cabana vs. The Elite: AEW World Champion Kenny Omega, Adam Cole and The Young Bucks: Matt and Nick Jackson: Tons of offense and spots. This was so much fun. Adam Page ended up paying huge dividends and Silver won with Spin Doctor.
