For the first time in well over a year, AEW is back on the road. Tonight from Miami AEW Dynamite presents: Road Rager! Tonight is action packed as we will see a South Beach Strap Match, the in ring debut of Andrade El Idolo, Tag Team Titles match, and so much more!
Tonight’s episode of AEW Dynamite: Road Rager kicks off with the South Beach Strap Match between Cody Rhodes and QT Marshall. I actually found this match to be entertaining. A little blood on QT Marshall and three Cross Rhodes later, Cody touches all four turnbuckle pads to win the match.
While doing a backstage interview gloating about costing Sammy Guevara a match, Shawn Spears gets got by Sammy.
Don Callis and Kenny Omega come down to the ring for an interview and claim there is no one left for the Champion to face. This crowd is hot for some Hangman Page but neither Callis nor Omega want to acknowledge it. The Dark Order interrupt the segment and confront Omega about dodging Page. Kenny doesn’t take too kindly to the interruption and kicks Evil Uno below the belt just as Gallows and Anderson come out and jump the rest of Dark Order. Hangman Page comes out and makes the save sending Kenny running.
Apparently, the beef between Ethan Page and Darby Allin stems from the fact that it only took Darby one year to get to a place in his career where it took Ethan twelve. Both men will face each other next week in a Coffin Match.
With Tully Blanchard distracting the referee, FTR hit the Big Rig on Hager to pick up the win in a Trios Match against the Inner Circle. Konnan thought it was a good idea to hit Wardlow with the madball but ending up getting a chop block from Blanchard.
We have a contract segment between MJF and Chris Jericho. MJF makes the stipulation that Jericho must defeat four competitors of his choosing all with stipulations of his choosing if he wants to face MJF in a match. Both men settle matters with a handshake that ends with Jericho hitting MJF with the Judas Effect.
Andrade El Idolo knocked the number five ranked competitor Matt Sydal to win his debut match in AEW.
Speaking of debuts, we saw the debut of Tommy End, now known as Malakai Black, made his presence known by hitting both Arn Anderson and Cody Rhodes with his former Black Mass kick.
Kris Statlander and Orange Cassidy were able to defeat The Bunny and the Blade with some big brain plays. The Blade used a set of brass knuckles to knock out Orange Cassidy but Statlander snuck a tag in making her the legal combatant. By rules of a mixed tag is the women must face the women and men face the men. The Bunny gets in there, Blade gets knocked, and the Bunny gets hit with the Big Bang Theory for the win.
Turns out Dan Lambert of American Top Team isn’t a fan of AEW.
The main event saw the Young Bucks defeat Eddie Kingston and Penta EL Zero Meido in a Street Fight. This one was pretty enjoyable. It seems the Young Bucks are starting to find their groove and getting back to putting on entertaining tag matches. They stuff a ton of thumbtacks in the mouth of Eddie Kingston and hit him with a Superkick. What a way to get the win and keep the titles.
Tonight was a really fun episode of Dynamite. If you know me you know the highlight of the show was the debut of Malakai Black. I’m interested in seeing what he can do for AEW with no creative restraints. What did you fine people think of tonight’s AEW? Drop a comment below!
