A Top Flight video package aired with lots of footage from
their independent appearances. They came across as star-
struck and thrilled, which probably isn't far from the
The Young Bucks (Matt Jackson & Nick Jackson) defeated Top
Flight (Darius Martin & Daunte Martin)Top Flight had a really good first performance on Dynamite.
They're rough around the edges, but they're phenomenal
athletes, particularly Daunte.
This was non-title. The action here was too fast to keep
track of. Nick and Darius started off as the latter
countered Nick's usual opening sequence of offense. Matt and
Daunte tagged in and Top Flight hit stereo kicks before
kicking Nick off the apron. Top Flight looked for a dive,
but backflipped off the ropes.
Nick got a blind tag and downed Daunte with a superkick.
Matt hit a dropkick through the ropes on Darius before the
Bucks isolated Daunte with frequent tags. Matt locked on a
sharpshooter then powerbombed Daunte onto his brother.
The Bucks set up for the Meltzer Driver, but Daunte fought
out and made a one-man comeback before reaching his brother
for the hot tag. Darius hit clotheslines and a Spanish fly,
but Nick broke up the tag. Darius hit a tope suicida and
then Daunte hit a tope con hilo on both Bucks.
Daunte barely made it up for a flip into a top-rope
frankensteiner for a near fall. Matt avoided a dive and
nailed a spear. Nick tagged in, dispatched Darius with a
kick, and the Bucks hit a Sliced Bread powerbomb combination
before Darius broke up the pin.
The Bucks went for More Bang For Your Buck, but Daunte
countered into a crucifix pin for a great near fall. The
Bucks then hit the BTE Trigger for the win.
After the match, TH2 came out and beat down Top Flight, but
the Bucks chased them off and raised Top Flight's arms.
**********The Inner Circle Slays Vegas
This was all hijinks. MJF kept trying to buddy up with Chris
Jericho and Santana, while Sammy Guevara and Ortiz resisted
his charms. Jake Hager and Wardlow never took their eyes off
each other. MJF and Jericho competed to see who could order
the most alcoholic drink.
Konnan appeared and he and the Inner Circle departed a
smoke-filled car. Piff The Dragon was there. We were left
with a "to be continued..." message.
A commercial for AEW's upcoming collaboration with Director
Jon Moxley cut a promo. He wondered how he was able to have
such a long championship, and he chalked it up to his dad's
advice. Moxley's got the whole world bearing down on him, a
broken body and a pregnant wife, but he remembers his dad
reminding him that they're "the good guys." He's the best
wrestler in the world and his dad's son.
The newsworthy portion was that Renee Paquette is pregnant,
but Moxley's promo was excellent as always.**********
Orange Cassidy (w/ Best Friends) defeated Kip Sabian (w/
Miro joined commentary. It was all Sabian early on. Sabian
prevented Cassidy from putting his hands in his pockets and
controlled him with a side headlock. Cassidy made his hands-
in-pockets comeback and hit a tope suicida.
Ford tried to stop Cassidy from getting back in the ring,
and Sabian took advantage with a kick and a gutbuster for
two. Ford taunted Cassidy on the floor as Sabian continued
his beatdown during the break.
They fought on the top rope before Cassidy pushed Sabian off
and landed a crossbody. Cassidy missed a diving DDT, but was
able to eventually hit it after a reversal exchange. Sabian
rolled to the outside to avoide the Orange Punch and
stumbled on a springboard, but they improvised well as
Sabian hit a brainbuster and a soccer kick for a two. A
Michinoku driver followed for a good near fall.
Cassidy countered out of a swinging neckbreaker with an
inside cradle, then locked on the Mouse Trap for the

chased him and Sabian away before celebrating with their

Moxley vs. Omega, is being billed as "Winter Is Coming."
Jon Moxley vs. Kenny Omega AEW World Championship contract
Omega made his elaborate entrance, but Moxley didn't come
out when his music played. It cut to backstage where a
bloodied Moxley was being attended to by Doc Sampson. Omega
was unfazed as he signed the contract.
What a bizarre segment.
The Inner Circle Slays Vegas (Part 2)
The Inner Circle were all drunk. Jericho welcomed an Elvis
impersonator as the newest member of the Inner Circle. MJF
said he loves the Inner Circle like blood brothers, but
Guevara took it literally and threatened to cut himself. MJF
noted that it was a full moon, and they all howled.Jericho woke up the next morning in bed with Elvis. MJF woke
up in the bathtub. He approached Guevara and was shown to
have Guevara's writing all over his face. Santana was
hanging out with chickens who apparently made him money the
They heard crying in another room. The crying was coming
from Swoggle, who was dressed in a diaper, referencing The
Back to Dynamite, Jericho joined commentary and announced
that he and Hager would face SCU on next week's show.
PAC defeated The Blade (w/ The Butcher & The Bunny)
Eddie Kingston joined commentary. This was Blade's first
one-on-one match in his AEW career, and he surprisingly
controlled the majority of the match. It went longer than I
expected, but PAC looked like a killer when he was on top in
addition to overcoming the numbers disadvantage.
PAC leveled Blade right at the bell and beat him down with
stomps. He sent Blade into the barricade and hit a missile
dropkick back in the ring. PAC confronted Butcher and Blade
took advantage with a baseball slide.Blade hit a release brainbuster, which PAC landed awkwardly
on. PAC went for a slingshot DDT but the move didn't quite
hit like he wanted. Bunny grabbed PAC's leg and Butcher
attacked from behind as Blade distracted the official. Blade
hit a gutwrench powerbomb for two.
After a break, PAC fired up with forearms and a pump kick.
He hit a thrust kick but Blade hit a powerslam for two. They
fought on the top rope, and PAC won the exchange after a
Bunny distracted PAC from hitting the Black Arrow and
Butcher tried to attack, but PAC dispatched him. Blade
rolled him up with a handful of tights for a good near fall.
PAC kicked out, hit a shooting star press, and immediately
applied the Brutalizer for the submission victory.
After the match, PAC grabbed a mic and addressed Kingston,
but Butcher laid him out. Butcher and Blade beat PAC down as
Kingston taunted him. Rey Fnix ran out and tried to make
the save, solidifying his split from Kingston, but Butcher,
Blade, and Kingston were too much for him.
Penta El Zero Miedo came out with a steel chair and teased
attacking his brother before lunging towards Kingston and
sending Butcher and Blade packing. PAC and the Lucha Bros
celebrated as Fnix made a triangle gesture, signifying that
the Death Triangle are back.
Schiavone sent it to the back as they got word of an
altercation. Jade Cargill was beating up Brandi Rhodes with
Vickie Guerrero and Nyla Rose before Big Swole appeared to
break it up.
**********NWA Women's World Championship: Serena Deeb (c) defeated
Despite the interference, this was a good championship
match. They performed some really solid chain wrestling
early on. Rosa gained the advantage after an arm drag and a
senton. She hit a hip attack onto the apron, but Deeb caught
her upon re-entry and hit a dragon screw to take control.
The announcers mentioned the NWA and Billy Corgan. Rosa
fought back with a drop toe hold and repeated corner
lariats. Deeb hit a neckbreaker over the ropes and an apron
spear. Rosa fought out of a GTS and nailed a German suplex.
She landed a missile dropkick, sending Deeb to the outside.
Rebel came out and distracted the referee as Dr. Britt Baker
laid out Rosa. Deeb landed a powerbomb for a good near fall.

Rosa fought out with a double stomp and they went to another
cradle exchange before Deeb hit a modified Angel's Wings for
the three count.
Rosa attacked Baker after the match as the referee corps had
to break up the fight.
The Dark Order's John Silver and Anna Jay talked backstage.
It was revealed that Mr. Brodie Lee demanded a championship
match against Hikaru Shida for Jay next week. Jay said that
when they first fought she was a rookie, but it's different
story now that she's in the Dark Order.

joined Team Taz as they all stood over Cody and Allin to end
