Welcome to our first Live Coverage of AEW Dynamite! I am Tanner, known as Viper on YouTube, and I will be your host tonight. Enjoy!
We open with the 10 Man Tag Team Elimination Match Between The Elite and Hangman Adam Page & His Dark Order Buddies!
- Alex Reynolds Eliminated by Karl Anderson @ 3:40
- Karl Anderson Eliminated by Evil Uno @ 4:41
- Stu Grayson & Luke Gallows Eliminated Via Countout @ 11:04
- Evil Uno Eliminated by Kenny Omega @ 12:22
- John Silver Eliminated by Matt Jackson @ 18:59
- Matt Jackson Eliminated by Hangman Page @ 23:56
- Hangman Page Eliminated by Kenny Omega @ 25:32
This was a very good match here that told a nice story of The Dark Order doing anything for Hangman’s shot and Page giving all he got before The Elite was too much for him. Nice opener [***1/2]
Ricky Starks Celebrates His FTW Title Win
Starks is introduced by Tazz and a band surrounds the ring playing celebration music. He mentions that Will Hobbs is out looking for new recruits. He said that he couldn’t forget that when he broke his neck Brian Cage didn’t check up on him. After Starks rants on Cage, Cage comes out and takes out the band (NOT THE BASE DRUM!!!!!!) and drives Starks out of the ring
On a vignette we get HIROSHI TANAHASHI challenging the winner of tonight’s IWGP United States Title Match. (HOLY SHIT!)
Up Next FTR Take On Santana & Ortiz!
Dax Hartwood pinned Santana after a Brainbuster at 11:27
This was a great match as expected, that got about the amount of time it needed. Maybe a bit of an anticlimactic ending but didn’t take away from this great match [****]
Lance Archer defends the IWGP United States Title Against Hikuleo
Lance Archer pinned Hikuleo after a Blackout @ 7:10
Well this was a bit short, but a solid match. I’m excited for Archer vs Tanahashi [**1/2]
Tommy End and Cody Rhodes engage in a brawl that ends in Tommy taking out both Cody and Fuego del Sol
The Hardy Family Office take on Christian Cage & Jurassic Express
Christian Cage pinned I Honestly Have No Idea after a Frog Splash @ 4:36
Short match here and to be honest I didn’t like it. A couple of botches, a botched suplex to get over with the crowd and an anticlimactic finish. Eh [*]
*Couldn’t get Rosa vs Hart due to internet issues, but I give the match 1 star
Chris Jericho takes on Nick Gage in a No Rules Match
Chris Jericho pinned Nick Gage after a Judas Effect @ (13:00)
This wasn’t really my cup of tea. Sure it was a nice hardcore shit, but just an average match in my view [**1/2]
MJF reveals that Chris Jericho will next face Juventud Guerrera where your finisher can only be made off the top rope. Excited for Juvie!
And that’s the end of the show ladies and gentlemen, I hope you enjoyed it. I give it a 6.5/10 only because of the rather slower 2nd hour
