On the program for this episode of AEW Dynamite, a match between Kenny Omega and Trent, the debut of Lance Archer, and a team match for the future participants of the TNT Championship tournament between Cody Rhodes and Darby Allin on one side and Shawn Spears and Sammy Guevara on the other.
AEW Dynamite is shot from an unknown location from this episode and for the next ones that have been recorded in recent days. The latter before Florida put an end to its containment. At the opening of the show, Tony Schiavone and Cody Rhodes (and the superstar Pharaoh) review the map of this episode before joining the stable of commentators. Several wrestlers will be in ringside for this episode, which will put a little more atmosphere.
The action of this episode begins with the announced match between Kenny Omega and Trent, accompanied by his two Best Friends Chuck Taylor and Orange Cassidy.
Kenny Omega defeated Trent by falling with his One-Winged Angel when they only had one minute left.
Hikaru Shida beat Anna Jayy by falling with a falcon arrow. Britt Baker was ringside snacking on a sandwich and had a little confrontation with Shida during and after the match.
After a short video clip of Jake Hager and Jon Moxley, we learn that the two wrestlers will compete in a No Holds Barred in two weeks.
Easy Beginnings for Lance Archer
Jake Roberts appears on screen before Lance Archer’s first game at Dynamite. He speaks directly to Cody Rhodes, whom he thinks is visibly smarter than he thought. It’s either that, or it’s his “half” who orders him to stay away from Lance Archer, that same half “who has to wear the pants,” he says.
For his first game, Lance Archer has an opponent of size … inadequate. Without a doubt the most unfair match we have seen recently since he faces Marko Stunt.
Lance Archer defeated Marko Stunt by fallen with his Blackout. Not a squash match, nor was it a piece of cake for Stunt, who did everything he could to not give in to Archer’s offense too soon. After the match Archer thinks he hasn’t done enough and throws Stunt into “the audience”, luckily Kazarian, Daniels and others were there to catch him.
New video by Brodie Lee, this time in a meeting with two other members of Dark Order. One gets thrown out because he didn’t call him “Mister Brodie” when the other yawned. He shouldn’t have.
Dustin Rhodes and QT Marshall beat 8 and 9 by falling with a flapjack. 8 and 9 are two members of the Dark Order, in case you don’t follow. As they lost, 8 and 9 take a powerbomb from Brodie Lee. Normal.
Chris Jericho talks to us from a jacuzzi in “Le Palais du Le Champion” and laughs at the members of The Elite, taking the opportunity to congratulate Nick Jackson all the same for the birth of his child, but in the manner of The champion. Vanguard 1 lands on Jericho’s property trying to coax him, tries to apologize (but doesn’t succeed) before offering to join the Inner Circle by handing him a t-shirt… which Vanguard steals. “Let go of the dogs,” Jericho yells, as a pack of pugs arrives around the pool. Five-star segment.
We see a little video about the Young Bucks training at home. Nick Jackson says he is looking forward to getting back into action but is unable to do so yet.
Spears and Guevara score before the tournament starts
The main event of this episode is the match between the team of Cody Rhodes and Darby Allin and that of Shawn Spears and Sammy Guevera, who will compete in solo during the tournament for the title of champion TNT.
Shawn Spears and Sammy Guevara beat Cody Rhodes and Darby Allin on a roll-up of Spears on Allin. A good match with everything you need for entertainment and entertainment. Guevara who does Guevara around the ring, Allin who does Allin in the ring.
Darby Allin didn’t really like the ending, to the point of hitting Cody Rhodes before leaving the ring.
A pretty cool episode in a fairly intimate “buddy” atmosphere given the size of the room. Take advantage, if they continue to promote future matches, we do not know if they will be able to shoot them all.
