All Elite Wrestling comes our way from Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey. Last week, Malakai Black continued to destroy The Rhodes family, CM Punk called out Team Taz, Powerhouse Hobbs took Dante Martin to the limit, The Brian Pillman Jr. push began, for someone who hates AEW Dan Lambert sure shelled out a lot of money for box seats, Ruby Soho defeated Jamie Hayter and teamed up with Riho and Statlander to prevent a D.M.D. Sanctioned beatdown, The Dark Order lost AGAIN, Bryan Danielson interrupted Kenny Omega, and Jon Moxley quickly defeated Minoru Suzuki.
This Week’s Headliner:
It’s a big week for The Elite. Adam Cole has his first match in AEW against The Elite hunter Frankie Kazarian. Frankly, I can think of no better way to prove oneself than to show up and immediately take out one of the biggest threats to your faction’s happiness. Now that is one selfless guy, that Adam Cole (BayBay).
Bryan Danielson interrupted World Champion Kenny Omega last week on Dynamite even though he explicitly said he hated interruptions. Rude. This week Danielson will be addressing his feud with Kenny Omega. If I were a betting gal, I’d say someone gets interrupted.
Honestly, I still can’t wrap my brain around Kenny Omega and Bryan Danielson standing in a ring together, let alone fighting in that ring for a championship belt! Is this what manifesting is??
The Title Scene:
The World Women’s Champion Britt Baker has to keep her eyes on the prize with a formidable opponent like Ruby Soho circling the water. Including the PPV, Ruby has had three matches on televised TV and has won them all. Hell of a way to say, “Hello, I am here and would like your championship now.” Britt may be in a league of her own on the mic, but Ruby Soho ain’t no slouch, and the promos these two have shared have been brutal. Hopefully, the AEW writers give this feud time to simmer. We know that the eventual championship match will rule, but the build has been way too fun to cut short so far.
After their epic win at All Out, the Tag Team Champions got a much-needed break from an AEW ring. We heard from them a little last week, but Dynamite thrives on tag team chaos, so hopefully, we get a little in-ring action from the brotherly duo soon.
What’s going on with the TNT Championship? Only God and Miro know. Maybe Eddie Kingston knows, too, if he’s lucky.
Other things to keep an eye on:
-CM Punk on commentary? It feels like a big flex on Taz, and I like it.
-Last week, Tully Blanchard and Shawn Spears called out and beat down Darby Allin and Sting. Look, some weeks you fight CM Punk, and some weeks you’re the guy that has to fight Shawn Spears. It’s just how the cookie crumbles
-Jade Cargill & Leyla Hirsch go one-on-one in a battle for who has the biggest muscles supremacy.
-Minoru Suzuki & Lance Archer have a proposition for Jon Moxley. The proposition better be, “can we have a match that is longer than 10 minutes and a commercial break, please?”
-Dan Lambert & Men of the Year have issued an open challenge. First-person to get them to shut up wins box seats.
Tune into AEW on TNT at 8pm ET to see how all this plays out.
