AEW Rewind: Darby Allin smashes windshield, Kaz angry, more!

Don’t have time to follow all of AEW’s online content? Don’t worry. We got you covered with the AEW Rewind, which will rewind through social media bits and YouTube videos from the past week to prepare you for Dynamite tonight.

Darby Allin is so focused on winning that he decided to bash a car windshield with a skateboard.

After seeing that video, I kind of hope Allin keeps losing. I want to see what chaos shall ensue.

Frankie Kazarian is angry about losing the tag titles. He’ll be shooting napalm until the belts are back around the waists of SCU.

It looks like Fenix and Pentagon will be exclusive to AEW and AAA this year.

AEW currently has a merch sale.

AEW Road to Cleveland

“AEW Road to Cleveland,” (here) featured:

  • Kip Sabian explained why he and Penelope Ford attacked Joey Janela. The reason being that Janela is a piece of sh*t. Sabian is eager to become champ to prove he is the best. That starts by beating Cody Rhodes tonight on Dynamite.
  • Private Party discussed coming out of the streets of Brooklyn to chase their wrestling dream. The two bonded in wrestling school over Jeff Hardy being their favorite. The goal of a party is to have fun, and they apply that rule to wrestling and life.
  • The final segment was Brandi Rhodes’ therapy session. If you haven’t watched it yet, it may be important story material. Check it out here.

Being the Elite

“The Morning After” - Being The Elite, Ep. 188 (here) featured:

  • The opening was the scene from last week’s Dynamite of the Young Bucks throwing MJF into a pool. This is my opinion next and not part of BTE. That moment adds more evidence to proving MJF was correct all along about Cody and the Bucks. What kind of jerk throws a knocked out person into the pool then laughs when he can’t swim? The Bucks, that’s who. Jerks. I kid, but not really. It was a fun moment in kayfabe land, however, it would be an instant heel move from the Bucks if it was real.
  • Tour of the Jericho cruise ship. No Brandon Cutler. The Bucks don’t know what he’s doing.
  • Backstage footage of Chris Jericho hitting the stage to rock.
  • Nick Jackson merch freaked at the beach in Nassau. He walked on water.
  • A hand was holding a Dark Order note. “Once you join, you can’t leave.” The person (perhaps Brandon Cutler?) looked out the front window to see Evil Uno standing on the lawn. The person looked down at the note then back out the window again. Uno was standing right next to the window. I’ll admit that I jumped a little. I was not expecting Evil Uno to be inches from my face on my laptop screen. It might have been the musical note though that caused a reaction.
  • Hangman Page woke up hungover in bed. He had an inner monologue about winning the tag titles. He tried to quit the Elite, but did they even hear him? Maybe he didn’t speak loud enough. Hangman was hoping for beer for breakfast at the morning meet and greet.

On the topic of Hangman and the Elite, Cagesider RazorEdge pointed out pivotal information in the comments of last week’s Dynamite reaction from a past BTE episode that may have started the crack in that relationship. It can be seen at the 15:49 mark of episode 167. Hangman had a title match against Chris Jericho at All Out. He approached the Young Bucks to ask if they would corner him, like they did with Kenny Omega in NJPW. The Bucks made excuses not to be there, so Hangman backtracked and slunk away with false bravado.

Shout out to RazorEdge for that info.

We’ll close with a cruise photo of Chris Jericho and SCU as four stages of Jericho’s career.

While waiting for Dynamite, jam out to theme songs freshly posted on AEW’s YouTube channel: The Hybrid 2, Bret Hart, Private Party, Bea Priestley, PAC, and Joey Janela.
