AEW Fallout: Janela finds silver lining, Dark to feature loads of returning talent, more!

New, comments

The big stories coming out of Dynamite (May 6, 2020) were Jake Roberts pulling out his snake for Brandi Rhodes and Le Sex Gods having a ridiculously awesome street fight against Kenny Omega & Matt Hardy. Fallout from the show includes reaction from Joey Janela, a stacked episode of AEW Dark, the Dark Order moving up in style, as well as other goodies.

Joey Janela lost to Cody Rhodes, but he is still a bad, bad boy. He found contentment in being one most underrated wrestlers in the world. Janela came from backyard wrestling to taking Jon Moxley and Cody Rhodes to the limit.

Interesting promo from Janela, but I wasn’t sure if he was going to cry with the sniffing and voice quivering. He’s the type of wrestler that is going to need storylines to stay fresh. Outside of one or two underdog pushes, he will be losing most of the matches against main event talent. That means there is only so many times he could send a similar message as in that promo before it falls on deaf ears.

Perhaps Janela can get back in the mix with the winner of the Luther and Jimmy Havoc feud. It has been announced that those two will wrestle on Dark.

Dark is scheduled to feature nine matches with 10, Colt Cabana, Private Party, Orange Cassidy, Britt Baker, Fenix, Kris Statlander, and Jurassic Express in action. Seeing Fenix’s name, I can’t help but hope he wins the Casino Ladder match at Double or Nothing to earn a shot at the World Championship. Animo!

Hikaru Shida is still on the hunt to find her missing kendo stick.

I wouldn’t be surprised if Britt Baker is the culprit. She probably made this face when stealing Shida’s cane.

Shout out to Cagesider Zak B for the astute observation in the Dynamite recap comments that the Dark Order’s creepers were wearing fancier threads when they attacked Jon Moxley.

That shows they have been taking Mr. Brodie Lee’s teachings to heart about the perception of dressing for success. Little details like that are what can make a good story into great.

We’ll close with a picture unrelated to Dynamite, but it made me laugh when seeing it.

This is just Ryback having some fun and not indicative of him signing anytime soon. I’d love to see the Big Guy in AEW once he is fully healthy. The hoss division can never have enough depth.

Do you want Ryback to feed you more by becoming All Elite? What booking would you like to see for Joey Janela? What do you think happened to Hikaru Shida’s kendo stick?
