Watching this week’s episode of AEW Dynamite from Daily’s Place in Jacksonville felt special if only because there was a raucous live crowd who were receptive to everything the promotion was doing throughout the evening. It was a fun show, one that did a fine job of acting as a lead-in to the upcoming Double or Nothing pay-per-view this weekend, and the crowd had a lot to do with that.
My main man Sean Rueter already covered that here, but I want to put more emphasis on this:

“Judas” is a damn good song on its own merits but when Chris Jericho, one of its creators, is smiling in the ring as the crowd sings along to it, with the Inner Circle right there encouraging it all, it becomes something truly special. I don’t care how many times I watch that video, it hits just as hard each new time I click play again.
Damn it feels good to have crowds back.
