AEW Dynamite: Road Rager 2022 Review

A breakdown of AEW’s Road Rager Dynamite special!

Chris Jericho vs Ortiz | Hair vs Hair Match


Chris Jericho def. Ortiz via Pinfall at 11:46

The match itself is pretty decent, but I love the post match antics of Sammy Guevera coming back to the Inner Circle and also the brawl during the match. Can’t wait for Blood & Guts. **3/4

Will Ospreay def. Dax Harwood via Pinfall at 13:41


Great match here. I liked Harwood’s aggression against Ospreay and Ospreay is pretty good with the counters. Loved Harwood’s last stand towards the end here before ultimately falling. Also Ospreay vs Orange Cassidy is unironically a must see match. ***1/2

Miro vs Ethan Page | All-Atlantic Championship Fatal 4-Way Qualifier

Miro def. Ethan Page via Submission at 9:49

This match is alright. A bit on the bland side, but a rather dominant victory from Miro makes sense here. **


Dr. Britt Baker DMD vs Toni Storm | Singles Match

Toni Storm def. Britt Baker via Pinfall at 7:32

Well that wasn’t good. Majority of the match is trash work from Britt before Toni gets a couple of moves in, but not enough to cover up this mess of a match. Glad she won though, but what a waste of 7 minutes. *

Jurassic Express(c) vs The Young Bucks | AEW World Tag Team Championships Ladder Match

The Young Bucks def. Jurassic Express at 14:53

A spot filled chaotic match here. Love the fight Jungle Boy put on while Luchasaurus took all the big spots. The Young Bucks winning makes sense considering the moment after the match that I have been waiting for. Love that Christian is now a heel and I can’t wait for his match with Jungle Boy down the road. ***1/2


The middle of the show really isn’t the best, but the first hour and the closing match make this a solid show and makes me wonder where they’ll go next with a few storylines. 6.5/10
