It is Wednesday, and it’s time for AEW Dynamite as they come to us from the Michelob Ultra Arena in Las Vegas Nevada. The commentary team is Jim Ross, Excalibur and Tony Schiavone.

Wardlow vs Shawn Spears in a Steel Cage

MJF is the referee.

As MJF mocks Wardlow forgetting the Diamond Ring in the CM Punk match, MJF can’t find the handcuff key to free Wardlow. Spears attacks Wardlow as he is still cuffed. MJF and Spears attack Wardlow. After Wardlow gets a kick on on Spears, MJF comes over to Wardlow to mock him because if Wardlow touches MJF, the match at the PPV is canceled. Wardlow is able to break apart the handcuffs and goes after Spears.

The crowd, who has been super loud and all over MJF explodes as Wardlow starts his beat down.

Spears is able to get a guillotine on the top rope and then starts t0o climb. Wardlow meets him on the cage and tosses him to the mat. He covers Spears and MJF refuses to count. MJF keep taunting Wardlow, asking him to take a swing. Wardlow sets up for the power bomb, and MJF hits a low blow. Spears hits the C4 and covers for a two count.

Spears leaves the cage to bring in chairs. MJF holds Wardlow and Spears swings, Wardlow drops out of the way and MJF takes a chair shot right to the head and drops. GREAT camera shot as Wardlow rises up behind Spears.

The Power Bomb Symphony begins.

After three power bombs and referee runs to the ring. Spears is power bombed on the chair and the ref counts three.

Winner: Wardlow

Wardlow pulls MJF up for a power bomb, and security floods the ring with all of them getting tossed and the last one getting tossed into the cage.

Wardlow climbs to the top and poses on the top of the cage.

The Jericho Appreciation society watches as Jericho throws a fireball in the face of a man backstage wearing a Jon Moxley t-shirt.

In the ring, Tony Schiavone is going to host a face to face with CM Punk and Adam Page.

Punk gives a standard “I’m going to win the title” statement.

Page says he already said what he is going to do to Punk and there is nothing Punk can do to take his title.

Punk asks why Page is taking this so personally, because it’s just business to him.

Page goes over how he is going to destroy Punk, but he didn’t mean at the PPV, he means to do it now. He talks about how he has dreamed of this moment and tossing a pipe bomb in Punk’s face. He then says that now that they are here, he can’t do it. He says the more he thought about what he wanted to say, but now he doesn’t hate him, he pities him. He says it’s the little moments when the camera isn’t on that makes a champion. He says he loves AEW, and he is defending AEW from Punk.

They had better do SOMETHING because Page isn’t making a lot of sense.

Punk says he doesn’t know what Page is so angry. He says the roads Page traveled down were paved by him. He built the house of AEW. Punk tells him to shake his hand.

They start to shove and then Page punches Punk. Punk sits on the mat smiling and Page leaves the ring and goes back stage.

We then get a video package for Anna Jay vs Jade Cargill.

William Regal joins commentary and it’s time for Jericho to join as well. Jericho cuts his music and he tells Vegas to sit down and shut up.

Eddie Kingston and Jon Moxley vs Private Party


When we return to full screen, Kassidy is able to get the hot tag and takes down Mox twice. He then leaps onto Mox outside the ring, and Kassidy hits a stunner and Quen hits a shooting star press for a two count. Private Party goes for the silly string, and Mox catches Kassidy and then drops him with a lariat. He starts in with the hammer and anvil elbows as Eddie holds Quen. Mox hits a paradigm shift and a three count.

Winners: Eddie Kingston and Jon Moxley

The Jericho Appreciation Society attacks and the rest of Moxley's team come out and it is an all out fight with the referees trying to pull them apart. When they are pulled apart, Bryan Danielson is selling his injured leg in the ring.

Eddie meets Isiah Kassidy on the ramp, and Mox goes after Marq Quen in the ring. Quen is able to get a moonsault press and a two count before Mox drags him to his corner and tags in Eddie. Eddie has a Funk U shirt on tonight. He hits a side slam after tagging in Mox. Quen gets a Pele kick and tags in Kassidy and they get in a few double team moves while the ref keeps Eddie from coming in and we go to picture in picture,

No winner for the match

We go to a pre-tape of the Hardy talking about their upcoming match with the Young Bucks. Matt says that the hard roads they walked to get into the business, they could not have survived. Jeff says that while this is their last run, it will be their best run. This was a breat promo from Matt, not a new character, but seeming as himself.

Ricky Starks vs Swerve Strickland vs Jungle Boy

Here’s your AEW spotfest match.

Starks rolls out of the ring and lets Swerve and JB fight. As they shake hands, Starks attacks and takes them both dawn. JB and Swerve trade moves and JB gets on Swerve’s shoulders and hits a Hurricanrana on Starks. The fight moves to the floor where Starks is able to get the upper hand as we go to picture in picture.

This is a crazy match, with lots of quick moves that look impressive. No selling, of course, but just these three guys showing what they can do. Reminds me of early AEW with matches that move at 100 MPH. Still, that was an impressive sequence.

When they return to full screen, Swerve and Starks are fighting on the apron. Sstarks is kicked to the floor, JB hits a rana on Swerve to the floor. JB gets a cover on Swerve, broken up by Starks. JB then gets a two count on Starks. Swerve and JB go to the top and as they fight, Starks joins them. Starks gets facepalmed to the floor. JB hits a Poisonrana and Swerve lands on his feet.

Starks gets a thumb to the eye and hits the Rochambeau, and JB sneaks in and gets the snare trap on the Starks. Starks gets a rope break, but JB slaps in back on and Swerve breaks it up, hits the Swerve Stomp on Starks for the three count.

Winner: Swerve Strickland.

And now the partners come out and it’s a free for all. Keith Lee, Luchasaurus, and Powerhouse Hobbs go at it with the sequence ending with Lee hitting a connonball over the top rope onto Hobbs and Luchasaurus.

In the back, Men of the Year and Dan Lambert say that smashing the belt would not mean they get the match they want. Dan has ordered a new TNT belt and it will be given to Scorpio Sky on Rampage.

On the stage, Tony is with Thunder Rosa. Rosa comes out without facepaint. She says she foguth for everything she has and Serena Deeb is not a champion. She gives a good rah rah promo about how she will beat Serena Deeb and keep the title.

In the back, Tony is with Red Velvet, who is upset about losing on Rampage Friday. Ruby Soho shows and Red gives her a scouting report on Kris Statlander. Ruby tosses the scouting report away.

Baker’s team goes to the back after they come onto the stage with her.

The crowd is solidly in Baker’s corner.

Baker has to struggle to get to the ropes for a break. Storm is able to hit a drop kick on Baker, who is still kneeling on the mat. Storm followers her to the floor where they brawl. Storm control the brawl until Baker is able to run her into the steelo steps and we go to picture in picture.

A LOT of ads for Discovery channel shows that weren’t part of the last few months, so I think Discovery wants AEW viewers watching Food Network and HGTV

When we return to full screen, they are back in the ring throwing hands. Baker gets a thrust kick and tries for the Pittsburgh sunrise, but Storm gives her a swinging DDT instead. Storm gets a hip attack a water wheel drop, and goes for a Storm Zero. but Baker gets a counter and covers for a two count. Baker gets a twisting neck breaker for a two count.

Joe hits a chop that drop Kyle. Joe then slams Kyle brutally. Joe goes for the cover and gets a twoc ount. Joe starts in with strikes. Joe then hitds a snap suplex and gets a two count.

One fo the hardest things when you see a big guy against a smaller guy is to make the smaller guy look like he has a chance without the big guy looking like a failure. They are doing a GREAT job on this match.

Joe tries for a muscle buster, but Kyle locks in a locks in an arm bar. Joe makes it to the ropes for the break. Kyle goes back to kicks. Joe comes back with right hands. They trade blows and kicks. Kyle tries for a Okana roll, and Joe reverses it to the rear naked choke. Kyle goes to sleep.
