AEW DARK MATCHES NEED TO BE SPOILER TAGGED IN THIS THREAD
They can be openly discussed without spoiler tags in the spoiler thread if you wish

AEW Dynamite for 7/15 mostly via https://www.f4wonline.com

quote:

TNT Championship match: Cody (w/Arn Anderson) defeated Sonny Kiss to retain the title

They went really heavy with the Four Horsemen teases here. Tully Blanchard was pointed out in the crowd and they cut to camera shots of him several times.

Kiss got a big entrance with the Jaguars cheerleaders. The match was very good but secondary to the teases with Blanchard.

Cody appeared to be taking Kiss lightly at the start. Kiss hit a rolling elbow. Arn Anderson gave Cody a pep talk. Cody used a full nelson. Kiss came back with a headscissors.Kiss missed a leg slice off the top and landed in the splits. Kiss recovered and used a 450 for a near fall.

Cody took control of the match with a vertebreaker. Cody hit a superplex for a near fall. Cody and Arn were both heelish in arguing with ref Aubrey Edwards for a slow count. Cody used a crossface but Kiss forced a break.

Cody exposed a buckle but got sent into it himself. Kiss rolled him up for a two count. They traded strikes.

The finish came out of nowhere as Cody blocked a strike and hit Cross Rhodes for the pin.

**********

Cody and Kiss embraced and raised each other's arms after the match.

**********

The announcers detailed the COVID relief charities they are supporting tonight at aewfightforthefallen.com.

**********

The announcers previewed the rest of the card. FTR vs. Lucha Brothers is up next.

**********

FTR defeated Lucha Brothers (w/Butcher & Blade)

They again pointed out Tully in the crowd and talked about him scouting FTR.

This match was very good but not at the level of the eight-man last week.

Pentagon and Harwood began the match. Pentagon and Fenix got some shine early and hit some tandem offense. Wheeler and Fenix got tags and things flipped in FTR's favor. Pentagon saved for Fenix and Lucha Bros were back in control before a commercial break.

After the break, Harwood got a hot tag and took on Pentagon and Fenix himself. Harwood hit two crazy suplexes and hit a sliding uppercut forearm for a near fall on Fenix. Harwood's chest was bleeding from some hard chops.

Wheeler got a tag and was immediately cut off. Fenix hit a pop-up splash off Pentagon's shoulders. Pentagon hit a springboard legdrop for a two count. Harwood tagged in and hit a modified doomsday device for a near fall.

Harwood and Pentagon fought on the top rope. They did a great series of spots where Fenix and Wheeler both tried top rope splashes but their partners got their knees up.

The match broke down into a brawl with all four guys in. Pentagon hit slingblade on Wheeler. Penta teased a destroyer on the apron. Wheeler blocked. They traded chops. Wheeler hit a tornado DDT through the ropes. Fenix hit a springboard splash off the post to the floor.

The finish saw Harwood rip off Fenix's mask. Fenix covered his face and Harwood cradled him for the pin.

**********

After the match, the Young Bucks attacked Butcher and Blade and took back the keys to FTR's truck. Kenny Omega entered with a cooler of beer.

The Bucks gave FTR their truck back. Omega offered to toast and drink a beer with FTR. FTR instead poured the beer on Omega's head.

Omega went after FTR but the Bucks held him back.

FTR left in their truck.

**********

Chris Jericho entered for a promo with Santana, Ortiz and Jake Hager.

Jericho said he beat Orange Cassidy in one of the greatest matches in AEW history and won the ratings war last week. He explained that he's never been beaten in the 18-49 demo and called himself the Demo God. The only thing worse than demo talk on Twitter is demo talk on television.

He said the fans want a rematch with him and Cassidy, the network wants one and Cassidy wants one, but they're not getting it.

Cassidy entered. Jericho said Cassidy did great last week but proved that he's too lazy to hang with Jericho at the top level.

Cassidy snapped his fingers and oranges and orange juice fell from the ceiling. Inner Circle was juiced. Ortiz took some bumps in the orange juice.

Jericho called for a towel and someone threw him an Orange Cassidy towel to dry off with.

Not a great segment.

**********

Alex Marvez interviewed Jurassic Express. Marko Stunt said Jericho was an idiot for getting covered in orange juice. Luchasaurus said after 65 million years he's finally getting a chance to wrestle The Elite.

**********

Jericho joined the announce desk, taking Taz's place. Jericho ranted and raved about being covered in orange juice and his 7000 dollar jacket being ruined. Jericho cut a promo on Stunt.

They replayed the orange juice spot again. Jericho ranted and raved for several minutes.

**********

Kenny Omega & The Young Bucks defeated Jurassic Express

This was the best match on the show. Very good stuff. I'm sure Stunt getting a lot of offense is going to be polarizing but whatever.

Nick and Jungle Boy began with a great exchange. The highlight was Jungle Boy blocking a facebuster. Stunt and Omega tagged in. They presented that Omega was taking Stunt lightly. Omega gave Stunt a lot of offense.

Luchasaurus and Matt got tags. Things quickly broke down before a commercial break and all six brawled to the floor. Omega hit a terminator dive before the break.

After the commercials, Luchasaurus got a tag and ran wild with a variety of kicks. He hit a standing moonsault on Nick and Omega saved after a cover.

Omega tagged in to face off with Luchasaurus. Omega hit snap dragon suplexes on all three Jurassic members. Jurassic Express came back with the Extinction Level Event on Omega. The Bucks made the save after a cover.

The Elite hit a triple tiger driver on Luchasurus for a near fall. Jungle Boy hit a top rope frankensteiner on Nick. Stunt hit a 450 and covered but Matt saved.

Stunt hit a tower of doom destroyer off Luchasaurus's shoulders on to Matt for a near fall. That spot was incredible.

Omega started hitting v-triggers. He went for a One-Winged Angel but Stunt blocked and rolled him up for a near fall.

Omega then hit a v-trigger and the One-Winged Angel on Stunt for the pin.

**********

During the match they showed Hangman Page drinking at a bar backstage. FTR joined him during the match.

After the match, Omega snapped and started pounding on Stunt with right hands. The Bucks tried to talk him down. They've teased on BTE that Omega is going to be bringing back The Cleaner character and this is one of the first signs we've seen of a more serious edge to him on TV.

**********

Alex Marvez interviewed AEW Women's Champion Hikaru Shida. MArvez mentioned that four of the top five ranked women in the company are unavailable for various reasons and asked if that meant Shida was ready for Nyla Rose.

Shida cut a promo in perfect English. She said she is always ready for Nyla but it doesn't have to be Nyla. She said there are plenty of talented women in the company. She said if you have the passion, step up and show her and challenge her.

**********

Moxley cut an effective promo. He said things haven't been great lately but things are better today, because today, he gets to hit and be hit in the ring.

Moxley promised to tear Cage's surgically-repaired left bicep off the bone and told him to enjoy the hospital.

**********

The Nightmare Sisters (Brandi Rhodes & Allie) defeated Kenzie Paige & MJ Jenkins

They're still doing the reluctant partners thing with Allie and Brandi. This time it was Brandi who was more aggressive about blind tagging herself in and such.

This was basically a squash. The finish saw Brandi come to Allie's aid and hit a spear on an interfering Paige while Allie hit a GTR on Jenkins for the pin.

Dustin raised Allie's arm after the match and they seem to be telling the story that Brandi and Dustin are starting to come around on Allie.

**********

Dasha Gonzalez called out Nyla Rose. Rose heeled on Dasha, then introduced her new manager, Vickie Guerrero.

Vicke cut a promo on the entire women's division. She said when they decide to go after the title that no one will stop them.

She said that Rose will steal every opportunity from everyone in the division and cackled maniacally.

Vickie is great and I'm glad there's a spot for her in this business.

**********

Cody defending the TNT title, Hangman Page vs Five from Dark Order, Ivelisse vs. Diamante, MJF in action, Young Bucks vs. Butcher & Blade in a falls count anywhere match and Luchasaurus and Jungle Boy vs. Jericho and Hager were announced for next week.

The main event is next.

**********

AEW Champion Jon Moxley vs For The Win Champion Brian Cage

Jon Moxley wore a Danny Havoc shirt.

Brian Cage did lots of very powerful moves.

Jon Moxley tried to hurt Brian Cage's arm.

Brian Cage did a German Suplex onto a barricade.

Jon Moxley did the Paradigm Shift.

Jon Moxley did a bunch of arm bars.

Taz threw in the towel.

Brian Cage attacked Jon Moxley.

Darby Allin saved Jon Moxley.

It was a good show.

NWA WHITE POWERRR!!!!

This week's episode pissed me off. Maybe my least favorite episode of dynamite so far.

Lucha Bros. and LAX continue to be grossly underutilized.

The Jericho ratings promo was absolutely dire, dog poo poo television. Thanks, tony khan

I don't like Nyla much to begin with but pairing her with old shrill screaming gimmick vickie makes all of that an automatic pass

ending to the championship match was lame as hell

just not a very good show this week

As a regular episode of Dynamite I think it was okay, but as a thing they put a lot of hype around I feel like it didn't quite deliver, but some of that is also just my inherently weird feelings about the main event and Darby.

Lucha Bros/FTR was loving awesome, though.

Now....face the fury of the Phoenix Force!

Said it in the Dynamite thread, but all the 90-day non-complete clauses from all the bullshit releases WWE did due to COVID. Marr Carona is the most likely debut next week, and might fight Cody (if not WARHORSE). Rusev is still under a COVID threat so if he was doing to debut next week, it's not happening. Who else will jump ship to AEW?

I love that he claimed he had NEVER been beaten head-to-head in the ratings since that was true up until 2-3 weeks ago, so of COURSE he would claim it now that it's false

I do think Jericho on commentary worked better when it was just him and Tony, and with the extra guys in the booth it can get a little chaotic. I did like a lot of the back and forth between him and JR though.

When somebody pointed out that Ivelisse and Diamante were in the crowd, I was hoping for another Anna Jay-style swerve where the Nightmare Sisters debut on Dynamite and then get completely pummeled by a superior team. Oh well..

Tag matches were good, Jericho's promo was good, OC is always good. Main event kind of lost me, but that happens to me in general due to fatigue.

They’re probably taping next week’s episode tomorrow, so unless the 90 day clauses are for when it airs vs. when you did the work, it won’t be anyone from the releases until two weeks from now. Also, Miro announced he tested positive, which is a whole other game from a high risk exposure.

Oh yeah, Nyla has already proven that she's a really strong promo, and assigning her a manager is almost certainly doing her a disservice. I have no feelings about Vickie one way or another, but I'm guessing it's AEW trying to go for an easy cash-in on Karen heat. Vickie's music does own, though.

i dunno that they'll do anything but have Cage squash Darby, it's cute that he gave him a shot with his little skateboard to save Mox because there's a story beat there between those two, but he's still a midcarder/young talent imo, so he'll probably get destroyed to try and "get to" Mox somehow

Nyla/Vickie definitely feels like an odd fit — does the monster heel really need to cheat? does a solid promo really need a manager? — but I like Vickie as a performer and would not be surprised if the quality of her work is improved in AEW
