AEW Rewind: MJF’s smart reason for not wrestling often, Jungle Boy vs. HFO member tonight, more!

New, comments

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.

Reminder, Dynamite returns to its Wednesday night time slot tonight at 8 pm ET on TNT.

Road to AEW Dynamite hyped MJF versus Sammy Guevara.

MJF had a good answer to the curious question of why he doesn’t wrestle that often.

MJF: I’m rich. I don’t have to wrestle to get money. I wrestle in order to make sure that it benefits me. And this match does benefit me, Sammy. And that’s why I’m going to be out there and perform in the main event and do what I do best, which is win. This match is important to me, Sammy, because I want to shut up every single person who even thinks for a solitary second that we are comparable talents.

Sammy spoke about being more exciting in the ring and how he has worked for everything while MJF was handed his position. In my opinion, Sammy’s chatter was a bit weak. It came across as praising himself as a performer while ignoring wins and losses. Yes, Sammy has been tested by veterans, but he also hasn’t done a lot of winning in those matches. It is time for Sammy to step up tonight and earn the victory.

AEW is wasting no time in putting Jungle Boy back in the ring after his loss to Kenny Omega for the AEW World Championship. Matt Hardy did not appreciate Jungle Boy getting in his business with Christian Cage, so Hardy is sending Jack Evans to hurt JB.

Frankie Kazarian had words for Kenny Omega. The champ continues to win by any means necessary. Kaz can respect that, because he knows what it is like as part of a team. However, Kaz’s days as a team player are gone. He stands alone as a one-man firing squad. The Elite will be taken out. Music kicked in at the very end like it was leading to a groovy Shaft montage. I hope that is part two. Kaz is a bad mother... Shut your mouth.

Joey Janela is an idea man. In addition to Bad Boy Summer, he has another good idea. Janela wants to talk out his differences with Sonny Kiss on a talk show. That should surely lead to entertainment for our viewing pleasure.

I’m getting Shawn Michaels vibes of Janela throwing Kiss through a window like when the Rockers broke up.

Will Hobbs was the latest guest on Outside the Ring with Lexy Nair (here). Hobbs’ preferred superpower is Magneto’s magnetism manipulation. His go-to karaoke song his, “Candy Girl,” by New Edition. The toughest adversity in life is losing his older brother, who gave his life to save Hobbs’ life.

Being the Elite

“Intermission” - Being The Elite, Ep. 262 (here) featured:

  • The Young Bucks and Good Brothers told a tale of Car Crash Cutler. Also, Cutler accidentally slammed the door on Don Callis’ hand. Crippler Cutler is on the prowl.
  • Nick Jackson did trick shot dunks on a mini hoop.
  • The Dark Order and Hangman Page discussed their accidental drug tripping last week. Hangman claimed he didn’t remember his AEW World Championship hallucination. The meeting turned into an intervention for Stu Grayson.
  • Isiah Kassidy gifted a purple do-rag to Matt Hardy. Hardy loves Private Party and thinks of them as his children.
  • Grayson’s intervention continued to solve the problems in his head about seeing the girl. Anna Jay was back in her spot, but nobody believed him. When they turned around, Anna was gone. After everyone left, Anna called Stu a little bitch.
  • The #1 contender competition for the BTE Championship was highest jumper. The goal was to jump and slap a piece of tape on the wall. Cezar Bononi won by touching the ceiling.

Not much relevant material to Dynamite in this episode of BTE. Hangman Page’s quest for the world title will be dragging on longer, since he declined to confess his drugged up vision. Sooner or later though, it will be time for Hangman to hop on his pony toward glory. That story will be sweet, once it gets churning.

We’ll close with Miro’s promo from Dynamite. It is so good that I wanted to include it to watch again. Miro’s words provide endless enjoyment upon replay.

Miro is going to slaughter Brian Pillman Jr. in his TNT title defense tonight on Dynamite.
