On this week’s AEW, Chris Jericho has a big announcement and Darby
Allin tries to take on Jon Moxley, but will he succeed?
Rey Fenix defeated Nick Jackson via Pinfall (Spinning Muscle Buster)
I mean is it any surprise this match was great? Nick Jackson and Fenix
are two of the quickest and most entertaining to watch today. The
match was quick paced and a lot of fun. In an interesting turn of
events after the match, Jackson offered a handshake, but Fenix
declined and left the ring.
Hikaru Shida defeated Britt Baker via Pinfall (Running Knee Strike)
Britt seemed to be pretty frustrated at the start of this one, but the
Doctor seemed focused. Unfortunately for Britt, tonight wasn’t her
night as during a commercial break Britt got busted open. As for
Shida, she is just enjoyable to watch. She again utilized a chair to
step off of and hit Britt. All in all a solid match up.
After the match an odd promo video of sorts was played. It showed a
man entering a subway car where a video played, saying “experience
freedom like you never have before.” It seemed like a commercial that
would have been on Saturday Night Live or a movie, but it turned out
to be a campaign, well kind of, for the Dark Order. They asked you to
use the hashtag Join The Dark Order. It…was something.
Dynamite Dozen Battle Royale Final Two: Hangman Adam Page and MJF
This match featured Pentagon Jr, Jimmy Havoc, Orange Cassidy, Joey
Janela, Kip Sabin, Chuck Taylor, Jungle Boy, Marko Stunt, Sonny Kiss,
Hangman, MJF, and Billy Gunn. The shocking first man eliminated was
Penta, after Christopher Daniels distracted him. Another fun moment
was Jimmy Havoc coming back after being eliminated with a staple gun.
Oh at one point Wardlow came out, basically as MJF’s body guard to
make sure he was the final two.
Once the battle royale finished, Chris Jericho and Jake Hager were
showed backstage. The gave Peter Avalon a hardhat because apparently
backstage is dangerous. TNT then went to picture and picture and you
just watched Hager and Jericho make their way to the ring, making fun
of crew and talent along the way.
Back from commercial break, Jericho and Hager finally make their
entrance to ringside. Jericho says after destroying ringside and
throwing things around last week after losing, he was fined. Jericho
attempted to apologize, but he couldn’t just form the word sorry. Jake
Hager had to help him out and say sorry, which Hager ended up saying
on Jericho’s before a lot. Jericho’s announcement seemed to be that in
Chicago he will finally get the proper thank you from everyone that he
has been after.
Again Hager says sorry, as Jericho goes on to say that Chicago is the
perfect place for “Chris Jericho’s Thanksgiving Thank You Celebration”
and that Indy doesn’t deserve it. As it seemed like Jericho had
finished, SCU’s music hit.
Scorpio Sky commended Jericho for apologizing, seemed impressed by it.
Sky reminds Jericho and the crowd why he through that tantrum last
week, because Sky gave Jericho his first loss in AEW. Sky goes on to
say that he didn’t mean to embarrass him last week, which Jericho
seemed to take offense to as he wasn’t embarrassed. Eventually Jericho
lays out the challenged to face Scorpio next week in Chicago, even
though Scorpio “isn’t in his league.” Jericho than gets baited into
making the contest for the AEW Championship.
After shaking hands and making it official, Sky pulls Jericho in
close. He says that while Jericho may not think he deserves it, Sky
has waited a long time for an opportunity like this. Next week, Le
Champion becomes Le Bitch. This leads to a brawl, where the entire
Inner Circle attacks SCU. There are handcuffs involved and SCU really
had no chance, but Jungle Express did chase off the Inner Circle (with
an intriguing stare off between Hager and Luchasaurus).
Luchasaurus defeated The Librarian Peter Avalon via Pinfall (Roundhouse Kick)
Again a match up with entrances during TNT’s picture in picture.
Avalon mentioned he was glad Luchasaurus was back, but this one ended
Private Party defeated Pround n Powerful via Pinfall (Hurricanrana
into a cutter)
In an emotional match, I think Private Party really proved themselves
to a lot of people. Beating one of, if not the best tag team in the
world is a huge deal, and they did it in an impressive fashion. Nick
Jackson may have taken the sock from Santana, but Private Party still
did all the work and you’re gonna want to watch their finisher.
Post match, Sammy Guevara takes Nick Jackson off the ring apron and
begins to beat him up. As Santana and Ortiz try to go after Private
Party in the ring, a returning Dustin Rhodes makes the save. Guevara
tries to go after Rhodes, but Rhodes uses his cast as a weapon.
Private Party, Nick Jackson, and Dustin Rhodes stand tall in the ring.
PAC versus Kenny Omega is announced for next week in Chicago. After
this announcement, Omega is shown in a gym, but stops to address the
AEW fans. He says he isn’t really known for being a promo guy, but the
fans have seen Omega do a lot of uncharacteristic things lately. He
says he has lost his marbles, but he has tracked down the reason, All
Out in Chicago versus PAC. Next week his path to redemption starts and
Omega says unfortunately for PAC it’s at his expense.
Jon Moxley defeated Darby Allin via Pinfall (Paradigm Shift)
From body bags to biting, this match had it all. Allin really did
bring it to Moxley, diving at him before the bell and taking the fight
into the crowd for a bit, it just wasn’t enough. After biting Allin,
Moxley pulled off the coolest Paradigm Shift off the top rope.
AEW ends with Moxley yelling into the camera and walking around the
ring hyping up the fans.
