#1. Swerve Strickland vs. Darby Allin — Winner: Darby Allin

THAT WAS INCREDIBLE! Darby Allin vs. Swerve was a banger and then some, and that’s the way you kick off Dynamite! Prince Nana and Brian Cage tried to interfere multiple times, but Darby fought back from underneath and finally utilized the Last Supper for the pinfall.

MJF is here! This is gonna be good… The World Champ takes some shots at Milwaukee. Never change Max. MJF gives Darby his props before insulting him and his “daddy,” Sting. MJS acknowledges that Darby Allin is one of the best he has shared the ring with. MJF then recalls beating Darby with a “headlock takeover” back at Full Gear 2021 and says that Darby is just not at his level.

It’s now Darby’s turn. He asks if anything he has accomplished has really made him happy. He digresses into the importance of mental health before stating that the money he has made over the past few years has allowed his parents to buy a home and his dad to retire. And he’s not talking about Sting, who is just his best friend in the company.

He then talks about how important morals are, before MJF retorts, claiming that those morals are nothing but limitations. MJF them says that while he may not be a good guy, that he may die alone someday, the fact remains that he is the AEW Worls Champion, and that’s all that matters. MJF wants his legacy to be known as the greatest of all time. He calls Darby Sting’s bitch, and… IT”S STIIIINNGGG!!

Sting is here! What a reception for The Icon! Sting does not see himself as a daycare kinda guy, but rather a cheerleader. He throws a few sets of pom poms in MJF’s face. He is intimidating Max and being hilarious all at the same time. I love Sting! This is awesome!

Speaking of daycare, Sting “accidentally” utters the words “Cody daycare.” He gives a shoutout to Ric Flair and draws parallels to his equation with Darby. or MJF’s equation with Coy. He then gives a shoutout to Scott Hall and Kevin Nash before acknowledging that while his career may almost be over, Darby’s is just getting started. Sting promises MJF that Darby Allin will become AEW World Champion one day, before Darby doubles down on that. MJF spits in Darby’s face and makes his exit to conclude the segment.

What a first half-hour of the show! I loved every second of this!


#2. Powerhouse Hobbs vs. Silas Young (TNT Championship) — Winner: Powerhouse Hobbs

Hobbs squashes Silas Young following a couple of huge power moves. As Hobbs is celebrating with QTV, we cut to Wardlow on the titan tron, who is destroying Hobbs’s car. He uses a forklift to completely annihilate the car. Hobbs is beside himself when suddenly, Wardlow’s music plays…

Wardlow is out and he and Hobbs start brawling. Several people are out to separate the two men, and amidst all the commotion, Wardlow powerbombs Alan Solo through a table to stand tall.


We see a VTR promo by Jay White and Juice Robinson, who dub themselves “Bullet Club Gold.”


#3. Orange Cassidy vs. Buddy Matthews (International Championship) — Winner: Orange Cassidy

Whatever, just whatever… I’m so sick and tired of Cassidy and him burying credible talent in this company.

Back from commercial, Cassidy and his stooges are backstage, and standing by is Renee Moxley Good. They are being goofy and call out Aussie Open “to fly to Milwaukee” for Rampage next week, when it’s common knowledge that Rampage is taped immediately after Dynamite. This was so incoherent, there was something about the IWGP Tag Titles here, I dunno…

Just get these guys off television for god’s sake.


Ethan Page is mad and he’s ranting about s**t no one cares about. Matt Hardy and Isiah Kassidy interrupt. According to Matt, Ethan Page is the biggest hole of the ass he has ever seen. Hardy and Page continue to argue before Hardy and Kassidy are attacked by The Firm, HOOK makes the save, HOOK initially gains the upper hand before the numbers game catches up. I’m getting a feeling… I’m getting a feeling…

It’s time to dance! IT’S JEFF HARDY! BROTHER NERO! Jeff Hardy is back! He takes out The Firm. He lands a Twist of Fate and Swanton Bomb on Professor Moriarty. Matt & Jeff hug.

Side note: Screw Excalibur. Just so damn annoying.


In a pre-tape segment, Kenny Omega thanks doctors and fans for their support over the past weeks. Matt & Nick are still recovering from their injuries and Omega’s home for now. He basically says that despite what the Blackpool Combat Club has done over the past few weeks, what they did to Don Callis was the straw that broke the camel’s back. He issues a warning to the BBC.

#4. Jon Moxley & Claudio Castagnoli vs. Brandon Cutler & Michael Nakazawa — Winners: BBC

Mox and Claudio attack Nak & Cutlet as they are making their entrance. Nak got some blood, so did Cutlet. Come on, it’s a Moxley match… Cutlet’s blade job was the most obvious I have seen on AEW TV thus far, and that’s saying something.

Rick Knox, the ref, just called for stoppage. That’s it! By the way, when it comes to enforcing tag team rules, this guy is never does anything but watch like a douche. Moxley is calling out The Elite, and wait a second…

Kenny Omega is here. Excalibur orgasms all over his mask. As Mox and Claudio are looking down at Kenny Omega on the ramp, The Young Bucks creep up from behing, attacking Mox and Claudio with stereo superkicks. Such great friends! Waited for Naka Naka and Cutlet to almost die before blindsiding the BBC so it looks cool!

Anyway, the BBC retreated after a bit…


#5. Riho & Willow Nightingale vs. Ruby Soho & Toni Storm — Winners: The Outcasts

There’s the usual post-match beatdown, Saraya joins in, there’s the spray paint bottle, there’s a Triple Powerbomb, which is an abomination of The Shield, uhh, Jamie Hayter comes out to make the save, she gets beat down too, Britt Baker comes out to make the save, she forces The Outcasts to retreat… this was a fun 10 minutes, ugghhh.

#6. Chris Jericho vs. “Pretentious” Keith Lee — Winner: Chris Jericho

Daniel Garcia repeatedly distracted and interfered here, but as Lee gained the upper hand on both men, he was attacked by a not so mysterious man in a mask as referee Aubrey Edwards was distracted, allowing Chrissie Jerr to get the win. The man turned out to be Swerve.

Adam Cole made his way to ringside afterwards, walking back Keith Lee to the back, but not before doing “the look.”

That’s it for tonight… a tale of two very different Dynamites. The opening match and segment were absolute gold, and Jeff Hardy’s return obviously pooped me, ’cause I’m human, but everything besides ranged from meh to suck to just not being worth anyone giving a ****.

That said, I’ll see ya for SmackDown on Friday. Until then, Goodbye… and Good Night, BANG!
