Revolution is just around the corner, so let’s tie up some loose ends and get ready for the PPV.
As I suspected, we started with the triple threat match for the TNT Championship. Guevara is defending against Darby Allin, and Andrade El Idolo. Remember, no one is allowed to interfere in this match, unless they want to be fined and suspended.
Sammy and Darby teamed up at first, but it ended pretty quickly when Darby attempted to pin Andrade. Alliances don’t last long in a free for all.
Andrade showed off his strength by lifting both Allen and Guevara at once for a big power move. He maintained control from here, until Darby and Sammy briefly teamed up again. The alliance didn’t last long, but Sammy managed to go coast to coast on Andrade.
The match was amazing, which unfortunately meant the ending was a tad lacklustre, purely because I didn’t want it to end. It felt like Andrade was going to win, but Sammy managed to retain his belt(s).
Sammy offered the hand of friendship to Darby after the match, but Allin walked away from him.
Emo Alex, Penta and Pac took to the ring to declare war on the House of Black, proposing a trios match at Revolution. The House accepted and Alex surprised them by naming Erich Redbeard as the third member of their team.
Dan Lambert and Scorpio Sky are still annoyed that Sky hasn’t received a TNT Title shot yet. Well, it looks like Khan has obliged. Next week on Dynamite, Sky v Guevara for the TNT Championship.
Keith Lee defeated JD Drake in a singles match. I guess he just wanted to warm up before his ladder match on the weekend. To be fair, it wasn’t the squash match I was expecting. Drake actually put up a decent fight.
The 3 remaining members of The Wingmen jumped Lee after the bout, but he kicked the crap out of all of them. Starks and Hobbs went to get him, but Orange Cassidy stopped them.
Punk promised to leave parts of MJF all over the ring this weekend at Revolution. It was probably the first decent promo he has cut in his AEW stint.
Tony has Jade Cargill and reminds us that she has a title defense against Tay Conti this weekend. Conti kicked Jade in the head and left her lying on the ground. I hope Conti wins, but I know she won’t.
Leila Grey was the next one to go down to Serena Deeb. This 5 minute challenge thing is getting old. I’d prefer it if it was against a real wrestler, not a jobber.
Wouldn’t it be funny if someone just ran away for 5 minutes and won that way?
Things finally got interesting when Shida returned and beat the crud out of Deeb with a kendo stick. Shida, Shida, Shida!
Kingston promised to not only defeat Jericho this weekend, but to embarrass him as well. Then he took Tony out for some Peanut Butter Pie.
Our Main Event featured Christian Cage and Ethan Page face off to determine the final entrant in the ladder match at Revolution. Christian won in a decent match, and punched his ticket to the PPV.
Jurassic Express came out to the ring to congratulate him. The Young Bucks and reDRagon came out to spoil the party. No words or punches were exchanged, but the Tag Team title belts were stolen. At least until Luchasaurus stole them back, the Jungle Boy took out their 4 opponents.
See you at Revolution!
