Eddie Kingston and the reDRagon duo of Kyle O’Reilly & Bobby Fish appeared on Dynamite for the first time in a while last night (Feb. 16).
Before the Mad King was injured, and KOR took paternity leave, they were mixed up in other people’s drama. Now that they’re back? You guessed it — drama.
Their angles pretty much picked up where they left off. The Inner Circle drama Kingston is involved in got more TV time while he was out, but it’s still Santana & Ortiz bucking against Chris Jericho’s self-centered leadership. It was Eddie that planted that idea in his ex-LAX mates’ heads, and Jericho is still pissed about it. That played out when Kingston cornered his boys against Le Champion & Jake Hager.
Chris’ focus on the guy from Yonkers cost him the match, then he lost his $#!+ trying to go after Eddie in the aftermath, even though Kingston never laid a hand on him.
And Santana and Ortiz have beaten @IAmJericho, but Jericho isn't finished with @MadKing1981, as he assaults him on his way out of the ring!#AEWDynamite is LIVE on @TBSNetwork right now! pic.twitter.com/xtDOI289rT— All Elite Wrestling (@AEW) February 17, 2022
The Elite drama reDRagon are mixed up in was more or less placed on the backburner while O’Reilly & Fish were out. Adam Cole wrapped up his feud with Orange Cassidy, then things got spicy again with the arrival of Jay White. Cole invited the Switchblade the same way he brought his former NXT mates in... without running it by The Young Bucks. Matt & Nick Jackson didn’t seem thrilled to see Bobby & Kyle back as part of Cole’s scheme to get the upperhand in his quest for Hangman Page’s World title...
To the surprise of noone, @adamcolepro's 'gesture' of respect was only a facade for the three-on-one assault that followed, as @KORCombat and @thebobbyfish lay into the World Champion @theadampage!— All Elite Wrestling (@AEW) February 17, 2022

and they definitely aren’t interested in reDRagon’s Tag title aspirations...
Call it miscommunication but something's not aligning quite right here between @youngbucks, @adamcolepro, @KORcombat & @thebobbyfish.— All Elite Wrestling (@AEW) February 17, 2022
