Sting goes crazy! The elite against the dark order! Blood and Guts Set!

After several jam-packed episodes of his Forbidden Door PPV, this week’s installment of AEW dynamite It had a much smoother pace. Amid future episodes and table-setting stories, the company still delivered a card full of entertaining matches. From the brutal punch of an opener to the slick tag team brawl of trios and the edge-of-your-seat main event, Dynamite had something for everyone.

WINNER: Jon Moxley vs. tomohiro ishii

AEW picked up where it left off on Sunday. Jon Moxley and Tomohiro Ishii went to war in another brilliant interpromo showdown. The fight opened up an exchange of twisted blows.

Knowing Moxley and Ishii, the next logical step would be for them to exchange biting each other’s faces. That is precisely what they did.

With the BCC lurking ringside, Eddie Kingston decided to step into the ring. He made sure there was no mischief involved. Fortunately, there wasn’t. Just two violent men doing their best to beat the holy hell out of each other.

Despite the considerable punishment each man received, they kept kicking one! At that point, Mox and Ishii resorted to headbutting each other. Moxley was busted. Ishii’s head was painted with Jon’s blood. It took not one, but two Death Riders to finally lock Ishii away. This was an incredibly exciting and physical start.

Later that night, we caught Jon Moxley and Eddie Kingston arguing backstage. Moxley’s wife, Renee Paquette, tried to interfere and play peacemaker. This is not functional. She yelled at Kingston, “You better fix this! I’m done!”

MID: Keith Lee, Orange Cassidy and El Hijo Del Vikingo vs. the JAS

This was a card filler, and it certainly served its purpose. El Hijo Del Vikingo and Garcia began the match with an incredible display of Lucha style offense that would have made Rey Mysterio, Jr. and Juventud Gurrera jump for joy.

The fans were treated to lots of fun and games in between the spurts of phenomenal work in the ring. Garcia was dancing on the back of the giant Keith Lee, Cassidy was having fun with Angelo Parker’s comb, and Daddy Magic was… Daddy Magic.

The trio of baby faces were victorious when Keith Lee (who was incredibly excited by the Hamilton crowd) hit a Super Nova on Matt Menard for the pinfall.

WINNER: The Elite vs. dark order

The Young Bucks and Adam Page issued an open challenge to any team of trios in the AEW locker room. Page’s (former?) friends, The Dark Order, accepted the challenge with piss and vinegar.

Early in the match, The Dark Order was a bit out of sorts as their emotions were getting the best of them. They wanted to show Adam Page that he had made a mistake getting rid of them. Page himself was conflicted. He avoided confrontation with Silver, Reynolds, and Uno whenever he could. But that only lasted so long.

The dense history between these six fighters added a lot of interesting dynamics and storytelling to the match. As you’d expect from a Bucks multi-man matchup, he reached incredible heights.

Evil Uno received a hot tag after the commercial break and went on a rampage with Elite, culminating in a hard slap to the face from Adam Page. Subsequently, Reynolds and Silver executed their beautiful combination in tandem; insuguri, stunner, german suplex and high-stack pin, all in a matter of four seconds.

The Dark Order’s valiant effort was thwarted when the Bucks hit a BTE Trigger, which was followed up by Hangman’s Buckshot Lariat. 1-2-3.

After the bell, The Elite were attacked by the Blackpool Combat Club. The Black Order chose not to help Adam Page. Alex Reynolds yelled, “You chose your friends!” Eddie Kingston, however, came to even the odds, but also took a beating.

Moxley looked away as the BCC pummeled Kingston. Then he grabbed the microphone and said the magic words, “Blood and guts!”

After betraying Hook at Forbidden Door, Jungle Boy leaned further into his heel persona. So far, he’s doing pretty well. He told fans they’d never hear from Baltimora again, mistook Hamilton for Toronto, and went on a victory lap for cashing crazy checks and sleeping with the hottest bitch in the company (his words his, not mine).

When he started going after Hook, things got a little more tense. She called Hook an entitled second generation jerk. Perry claimed that he was going to take the FTW Championship. “Hook, I’m going to beat the crap up –“

Hook’s musical success. Jungle Boy ran like a tiger was chasing him. The chase cut through the crowd and into the garage. Jack Perry jumped into an SUV. He left at night. Clearly, this is far from over.

The Owen Cup quarterfinal match between Ruby Soho and Britt Baker ended up not taking place. Britt Baker contracted an illness. While the match would have been amazing, the postponement may have been a blessing in disguise.

Soho was still in action against a local development talent, Alexia Nichole. Ruby’s work was fast and brutal. She climaxed when she donned a black Baker-style glove and executed the doctor’s finishing move; The jaw lock.

After the final victory, Soho grabbed the microphone and questioned the direction of Britt Baker’s career. She stressed that Britt is not the star that she once was. Ruby also highlighted the milestones of their rivalry, the main event of The Grand Slam and last year’s Owen Cup finals. It was a very strong promotion and did a lot to promote an important match that deserved a build.

WINNER: Sting and Darby Allin vs. Chris Jericho and Sammy Guevara

Sting, Darby Allin, Chris Jericho (as The Painmaker) and Sammy Guevara wrapped up the show with a ball-against-the-wall Tornado Tag Team Match. It was mostly gasoline and very few brakes.

Early on, we saw Sting and Jericho fighting with their respective bats. That led to Jericho eating a couple of Stinger Splashes. Darby Allin did Darby Allin stuff; he was not the least of whom went to his knees first on the steel steps that sent him headfirst into the barricade. Later, he attempted a coffin drop from the top rope to the outside… he ate mostly the ground.

The place all the cool guys will be talking about tomorrow was Sting, 64, making a splash from a ladder onto Sammy Guevara and a table (which was outside the ring). The distance Sting had to clear would have been too much for many wrestlers, let alone a 60 year old wrestler. However, he went for it and got almost all of it.

To their credit, Jericho and Sting had a pretty exciting exchange in the final minutes of the match. They traded finishers and near falls until eventually Jericho resorted to the Scorpion Death Lock.
