The Acclaimed remain free to scissor at their own discretion

On a night where it seemed like people were teaming up all over the place, The Acclaimed & Daddy Ass... well, they teamed up a while ago, so they didn’t need to recruit Kononsuke Takeshita, or Arn Anderson & his Glock, or The Outcasts, or Sammy Guevara.

They also avoided being forced to get six week memberships in the Jericho Appreciation Society by beating Jake Hager, Daddy Magic Matt Menard & Cool Hand Angelo Parker. But before we get into that, here’s Max Caster’s latest rhyme (I believe the censored bit is “Jericho’s penis”)...

Not having to join the JAS from now until Double or Nothing means Caster, Anthony Bowens & Billy Gunn have survived another challenge to their right to scissor. The thought of preventing the trio from smashing their splayed fingers together from now until Memorial Day made Daddy Magic’s nipples hard. But when Gunn snapped bent Cool Hand Ang’s comb in half to set the former tag champs up to hit him with The Arrival and a Mic Drop...

... we avoided another national nightmare like the one we had last October, when Smart Mark Sterling blocked The Acclaimed from scissoring for like two whole weeks!


Let us know if you still love The Acclaimed, and feel free to let us now if you share Hager’s take on his hat. While you’re on your way down to the comments section, check out the highlights from the April 19 edition Dynamite below. We’ve put all the YouTube videos AEW has released as of this morning in a playlist (amazingly, there are a lot of them this week!), and since they don’t release everything that way at the same time, we’ve got Twitter clips of the other big moments and matches below that.
