AEW Dynamite preview (Jan 27, 2021): The Past and The Present Collide!

Tonight All Elite Wrestling comes our way from Jacksonville, Florida. Last week Adam Page said no to The Dark Order, Team Taz challenged Allin to a street fight, The Young Bucks were unimpressed by Kenny Omega’s art choices, Jade Cargill almost cost Cody Rhodes his match, FTR continued to hate dinosaurs, Jon Moxley reminded the AEW locker room why he’ll always be a threat, Private Party got sneaky Hardy Style, Chuck Charles Taylor was forced to turn his back on OC, Penelope Ford kicked ass, The Good Brothers took out Penta with help from The Champ, The AEW Women’s World Championship Eliminator Tournament was announced, and MJF cheated to become the official Inner Circle tag team with Chris Jericho.

This Week’s Headliner:

Tonight The AEW Tag Team Champions, The Young Bucks, are partnering with The Impact Tag Team champions, The Good Brothers, to face Dark Order. Now, this should be an easy win for the double champs because The Dark Order is still reeling from their tragic break-up with Hangman Page. (He loves them, he’s just not ready for that kind of commitment.) But while there may be a lot of Bullet Club history between them, there also been a lot of tension recently. That tension is named Don Callis.

It’s clear that Don Callis sees The Young Bucks as a threat to his partnership with Kenny Omega so he’s doing everything in his greasy, manipulative power to convince The champ to cut them out of his life. On the other hand, the Good Brothers have the Impact - and therefore the Callis - stamp of approval.

Will their fight for Kenny’s attention prove to be too much of a distraction or can the two teams put aside their problems for one evening and crush The Dark Order?

Of course, it’s also very likely that they’ll crush The Dark Order and still fight with each other afterward because, LOL, who cares as long as The Bucks and The Brothers come to blows.

The Title Scene:

The AEW World Champion is 100% being manipulated by his...manager I choose between his two best friends. Will Kenny Omega pick a side in the Young Bucks/Good Brothers battle? Or will he simply continue to buy questionable art from the internet?

AEW Women’s Championship eliminator tournament was briefly announced last week. Hopefully, we learn more about it on tonight’s episode of Dynamite. Double hopefully, the tournament happens on the main show and not on YouTube like the last one.

TNT Champion Darby Allin & Papa Sting address their street fight with Team Taz. Maybe Sting will even let his son talk this time!

Team Taz is big and scary, but you gotta be some kind of crazy to challenge Darby Allin - Mr. Throws-Himself-Off-Train-Tracks to a street fight. This does not end well for Team Taz.

Other Things to Keep an Eye On:

-Lance Archer will finally go one-on-one with Eddie Kingston. Eddie Kingston doesn’t seem worried, and that seems like a big mistake.

-Jungle Boy battles Dax Harwood while Cash Wheeler & Tully Blanchard are handcuffed to Luchasaurus. Kinky.

-Cody responds to Shaq, which means he’s really responding to Jade Cargill. Raise your hand if you want to see Cody versus Jade way more than you want to see Shaq wrestle!

-Jon Moxley will be dropping truth bombs on the mic again! #Blessed

-Chris Jericho & MJF take their first spin in the ring as the Inner Circle’s official tag team against The Hollywood Blondes.

-Non-Dark Order member Hangman Page battles newcomer, The Hunk Ryan Nemeth.

-Dr. Britt Baker wrestles Shanna and then presumable either calls out Thunder Rosa or gets brained by Thunder Rosa. Either way, it’s probably going to be a bad night for the good doctor.

Tune into AEW on TNT at 8 p.m. EST to see how this all plays out!
