The John Report: AEW Dynamite 11/09/22 Review

aew dynamite nov 9

This week’s AEW Dynamite featured Bryan Danielson facing Sammy Guevara in the main event, a big eight-man tag team match and more.

This was AEW Dynamite episode #162 at the Agganis Arena in Boston, Massachusetts. Check out the AEW PPV listing archive only on TJRWrestling as well. Follow me on Twitter @johnreport. Let’s get to it.

It’s Wednesday and you know what that means. Excalibur welcomed us to the show along with Taz and Tony Schiavone.

The 8-man tag team match was up first. Big ovations for FTR and The Acclaimed for their entrances. Max Caster did his pre-match rap where he said they were going to beat two snakes and the Ass Boys. Billy Gunn tackled Swerve Strickland, but BJ Whitmer was there to tell Billy to go to the back.

FTR (Dax Harwood & Cash Wheeler) and The Acclaimed (Max Caster & Anthony Bowens) (w/Billy Gunn) vs. The Gunns (Austin & Colten Gunn) (w/Stokely Hathaway & W. Morrissey) and Swerve In Our Glory (Keith Lee & Swerve Strickland)

Colten hit Harwood with a dropkick, Austin tagged in and got into a slugfest leading to Harwood getting a shoulder tackle. Harwood gave Austin a catapult into the corner, then an atomic drop for Colten and Dax’s teammates all punched Austin. Wheeler was in, Austin hit a back elbow and Swerve worked over Wheeler with some punches. Wheeler with a backbreaker on Swerve. Caster was in, Swerve got a headscissors and Lee tagged in for his team. Caster rocked Lee with a superkick, then Lee’s other teammates all went into the ring and then all eight guys were in the ring with the faces punching the heels. The Acclaimed guys hit shoulder tackles to send Lee out of the ring. FTR and Acclaimed celebrated in the ring together as the show went to a picture-in-picture break.

The match returned with Harwood hitting Swerve with a German Suplex. Harwood with a suplex on Austin, then Colten tagged in and Harwood avoided a splash so that Bowens got the tag. Bowens with a superkick on Austin, then elbows/forearms on Swerve and Bowens hit a leg drop to the back of the head like a Fameasser for two. Austin illegally went into the ring and The Gunns hit the Big Rig for two as Caster made the save. All eight guys were in the ring again, Lee didn’t seem thrilled about it and they got into a slugfest. The fight led to FTR and Gunns getting knocked out of the ring. Lee gave Bowens a Powerbomb onto Caster’s back. Lee and Swerve with a double team forearm/kick. Swerve did a twisting splash onto a bunch of guys on the floor. Bowens wasn’t even touched and still sold it anyway. Harwood gave Colten a superplex off the top onto a pile of wrestlers on the floor. Harwood and Austin were back in as the legal guys in the match with Austin acting like a moron, Harwood tripped him up and Harwood locked in a Sharpshooter submission until Colten saved his brother. Bowens hit the Arrival slam on Colten, Caster with a Mic Drop elbow on Colten and FTR hit a Big Rig on Austin. Bowens got the pin for his team. I’m not sure if the right legal guys were part of the finish. It doesn’t matter. It went about 12 minutes.

Winners by pinfall: FTR (Dax Harwood & Cash Wheeler) and The Acclaimed (Max Caster & Anthony Bowens)

Analysis: ***1/4 It was a pretty good match where it’s not a surprise that one of the Gunns took the pin considering the other guys in the match. A lot of chaos in the match where they ignored rules so they can do spots, which is typical in any AEW tag team match. I thought they could have done more spots with Lee disagreeing with Swerve to further that story. FTR working well together with The Acclaimed shows they get along well, but that’s a future tag team rivalry down the road.

Let’s Hear from MJF

They showed MJF on the Barstool Sports show Pardon My Take. MJF was seated and stared into a camera that was in the room. MJF said that if he wants to be 110% for Full Gear, he shouldn’t be traveling on the road. MJF talked about how this was the most important match of his life and the most important match in professional wrestling. MJF talked about how he’s a guy that take can take wrestling to new heights while listing Bruno Sammartino, Hulk Hogan, Steve Austin, The Rock, John Cena and he thinks he is in that class. MJF said that the only person that is in his way is Jon Moxley. MJF said Moxley is a lowlife scumbag, piece of shit, but MJF respects him. MJF said he respected Moxley for being the man that he is. MJF talked about how Moxley did the darn near impossible by becoming the best wrestler on God’s green Earth. MJF said that he was born to be THE professional wrestler. MJF said he can be on the top sports show Pardon My Take, he can be in movies and TV shows. MJF said that he can bring pro wrestling back to where it belongs as something that everybody can talk about. MJF said he’s so sick of waiting his turn. MJF said at his first ever pay-per-view match, the spotlight was on a neck tattoo and when he was against Moxley, the spotlight was on Matt Hardy falling on his head. MJF kept on ranting saying that when he returned at All Out, the spotlight was on a press conference. MJF said he didn’t need the Dynamite Diamond Ring to knock Moxley out and said at Full Gear, “the devil gets his due.”

Analysis: It was an interesting promo style there because it was a seated interview rather than putting MJF in the arena. As usual, MJF did a great job of making his points, showing a lot of confidence and trying to put over how important the title match is for him. MJF always makes his points well. It was no different here. The fans in the area were probably disappointed that MJF wasn’t in the building for a promo like that, but I’ll give AEW credit for trying something different because of how they filmed this.

There was a promo from Stokely Hathaway saying he didn’t need his best friend Maxwell Jacob Friedman because he can do this himself. Stokely talked about how MJF used The Firm to earn his title shot. Stokely said that win, lose or draw, he’ll see Max in hell.

AEW World Title Eliminator Tournament: “All Ego” Ethan Page (w/Stokely Hathaway) vs. Eddie Kingston (w/Ortiz)

The action spilled to the floor quickly with Ethan hitting a shoulder tackle off the apron onto Kingston. Back in the ring, Kingston hit a knee to the ribs followed by a double underhook suplex. Ethan with a hard whip that sent Kingston into the turnbuckle. Ethan with a suplex on the floor leading to a break.

(Commercial)

Kingston was in control with a suplex for a two count. They got into a slugfest with Kingston getting some hard chops in leading to Kingston getting a DDT for two. Ethan came back with a forearm to the jaw, but Kingston came back with an Exploder Suplex across the ring. Kingston applied the Stretch Plumb submission, Hathaway distracted the referee, Ethan was tapping out and the referee missed it because he was looking at Stokely. Ortiz scared Stokely to cause him to run away. Ethan got a roundhouse kick to the head. Ethan went up top, Kingston went after him with some head biting, Ethan got out of that and trapped Kingston on the top rope. Ethan was standing on the top rope and gave Kingston the Ego’s Edge (release Powerbomb) for the pinfall win after about ten minutes.

Winner by pinfall: “All Ego” Ethan Page

Analysis: *** Good win by Ethan, who benefitted from the referee missing the tapout. Since Kingston had the match won, it gives him something else to be angry about since he got screwed out of the victory. I’m glad Ethan got the win because he’s been poorly booked for a long time, so at least now they are using him more. The Ego’s Edge finishing move is one of the better finishers in AEW these days.

There was a backstage interview with six people standing near Renee Paquette. Jose The Assistant was with Rush saying that when Rush wins the AEW World Title, he’ll give Ten a World Title shot. Rush

Ari Daivari of The Trustbusters was in the ring saying he’ll give Wardlow his butler for the TNT Championship. That led to Wardlow’s entrance with ROH TV Champion Samoa Joe joining him.

TNT Championship: Wardlow vs. Ari Daivari

Wardlow kicked the butler and threw him out of the ring. Wardlow gave Ari a headbutt. Wardlow did the wind up lariat. It was Powerbomb Symphony time with Wardlow hitting four straight Powerbombs followed by the foot on the chest pin. It went two minutes.

Winner by pinfall: Wardlow

Analysis: 1/2* A squash match win by Wardlow. Exactly what it should be.

Wardlow called out Powerhouse Hobbs, so Hobbs made his entrance and stood on the stage. Wardlow told Hobbs he is not getting the TNT Title with Wardlow saying it will always be his title while adding that he’s going to take every title in this company. Samoa Joe didn’t seem to like that comment, so Joe hit Wardlow in the back of the head with the ROH TV Title. The director did a cut away so they missed it. Joe choked out Wardlow with a rear naked choke while Hobbs was laughing about it. They replayed the belt shot since they missed it live.

Analysis: Joe and Wardlow were aligned for a few months, but that’s over now. I don’t know why they decided to turn Joe heel. Joe is fine in either role although fans are going to cheer him due to the respect he has.

Saraya and Britt Baker meet up face to face in the ring up next.

(Commercial)

Jade Cargill and The Baddies were interviewed by Renee Paquette, who said that Cargill will defend the TBS Title against Ny Role, who stole the championship.

Analysis: A lame storyline. Really bad.

Face To Face: Saraya and Dr. Britt Baker D.M.D.

Dr. Britt Baker D.M.D. made her entrance first followed by Saraya with Tony Schiavone in the ring conducting the interview. They should have Renee Paquette in this spot in the ring, but they love using Tony for these segments. Tony mentioned Saraya wanted to tell us something.

Saraya said that a couple of weeks ago, she did MRIs, X-Rays and CT scans and unfortunately for Britt, Saraya is “100% cleared.” The fans popped for that with Saraya getting emotional in the ring. Saraya: “AEW is my house.”

Britt Baker trashed the AEW fans for being fickle. Baker said that Saraya is cleared, so she wondered if Saraya even knows how to do this. Baker said that Saraya has been coming after Baker since the day she got there. Baker told Saraya that she built AEW from the ground up that became a fortress and superstars like Saraya want to move into it. The fans were chanting “DMD” for Britt even though she just trashed them. Baker didn’t like Saraya calling it “your house.” Baker said that Saraya didn’t lay a single brick and she gets why Saraya is obsessed with Britt because Britt is everything that Saraya wishes she could be. Britt said Saraya left her house and walked into Britt’s house. Britt said, “we don’t do walk-ins, so bitch, make an appointment.”

Saraya said that Baker puts herself on a pedestal, but she got put into the position by Tony Khan and was fed QT’s trainees. Saraya said Britt has only been on camera for three years while Saraya has been in the business 30 years (she is 30 years old) and professionally 17 years. Saraya told Britt she didn’t know what it takes to be a superstar or a star. Saraya talked about how she got hit by a car and wrestled the same day because she loves this business. Saraya told Britt she handed out resumes and got turned out since she was female. Saraya claimed she started revolutions before they were a trend. Saraya talked about being in MSG, O2, Tokyo Dome and now she’s standing in front of an ungrateful bitch. Saraya spoke about how she was publicly humiliated in front of millions of people, she talked about having a drug addiction and she gave her career/neck for this business. Saraya told Baker that she didn’t have a clue what it takes to make it.

Saraya said this will be her comeback story and the biggest match of Britt’s career. Saraya: “It’s going to be you versus me at Full Gear.” Britt was in shock even though we all knew it was coming. Baker charged, Saraya ducked it and Saraya picked up Britt leading to a DDT into the mat. Saraya: “This is my house!” Saraya left proudly.

Analysis: Well done by Saraya. It is easy to support her and back her after not being able to wrestle for five years. She was emotional at times during that promo, which is understandable. What Baker said made sense from her perspective as an AEW veteran that has been part of the company since the beginning and is pushed a lot. That also made it fun to see Saraya drop Baker to end the segment.

There was a backstage segment with Jay Lethal and his group talking to QT Marshall’s group with Sonjay Dutt giving Cole Karter some money for dressing up as Sting last week. QT Marshall took some money out for himself and gave a bit to Karter. The Best Friends group showed up leading to QT Marshall suggesting that Orange Cassidy put up the All-Atlantic Title against Lee Johnson on Rampage. Orange quickly said yes.

Trent Beretta called Jay Lethal and his group scumbags, then Jay asked if he wanted to do something about it and Trent said he’ll fight him on Dynamite. I guess that was earlier in the day.

Trent Beretta made his entrance, Jay Lethal attacked Trent from behind with a chop block on the ramp and they went fighting down towards the ring. Jay sent Trent into steel steps so that Trent’s knee hit the steel steps. Sonjay Dutt and Satnam Singh went to ringside to support Lethal. They went into the ring to start the match.

Jay Lethal (w/Sonja Dutt & Satnam Singh) vs. Trent Beretta

Lethal worked on Trent’s knee some more by kicking the back of the leg. Trent got some offense going with a belly-to-back suplex. Trent with elbows to the head, the referee made him move back and Lethal hit a kneebreaker followed up by a dragon screw leg whip that sent Trent out of the ring. Chuck Taylor and Danhausen showed up at ringside to support their buddy Trent as the show went to a PIP break.

(Commercial)

The match returned with Lethal going for an elbow drop off the top, but Trent blocked it. Trent hit a German Suplex followed by a half-n-half suplex. Trent kicked Lethal hard into the turnbuckle and a Tornado DDT connected for a two count. They went up top where Trent hit a half n half suplex off the top followed by a knee strike. Danhausen was on the apron doing his comedy stuff with a punch to Dutt, but then Singh headbutted Danhausen. Trent kicked Singh off the apron with Singh landing on his feet. Lethal with a kick to the knee. Lethal with a slam off the shoulders followed by the Lethal Injection for the pinfall win after seven minutes.

Winner by pinfall: Jay Lethal

Analysis: **1/2 It was fine for a shorter match where we only saw about four minutes full screen. They tried to tell the story with Lethal working on the knee early, then Trent was on offense where he stopped selling the knee and Lethal won after the distraction. Lethal getting the pin was the right move since he’s pushed a bit while Trent is a guy that’s going to have good matches, but rarely wins singles matches on TV.

There was going to be a post match interview by Tony Schiavone on the ramp, but Sonjay Dutt told him to get out there. Dutt introduced Jeff Jarrett, who came out to his TNA theme song. Jarrett said that after over 1 million views of the debut of “The Last Outlaw” (that’s him I guess), Jeff said he showed up after his friends called. Jeff told us he signed Jay to his very first contract while beating Ric Flair, Sting and he’s a Grand Slam Champion in Ring of Honor. Jeff said Dutt has an IQ of 181 while adding they have taken over promotions all over the globe. Jeff told the camera man to film Singh – the 7’5” giant. Jeff said he’s not a make-believe monster who wears red skinny jeans and is produced by the banana-nosed circus. Jeff put over Singh for being one in a billion and the only NBA player to be born and bred in India. Jeff said that they put Darby Allin in a body bag last week, they’ll put Sting in a body bag too and Jeff yelled at a crew guy trying to get Jeff to wrap up. Jeff was mad about it, so he chased the guy, who ran away and Dutt calmed Jeff down.

Analysis: It sounded like an official match challenge by Jarrett. Jeff knows how to deliver a heel promo, that’s for sure. The line about “monster who wears red skinny jeans” was a direct shot at WWE’s Braun Strowman. The banana-nosed circus is probably a reference to Triple H, who has received his fair share of nose jokes in his career. Considering how little Singh has wrestled in his life, it’s probably not a great idea to trash a successful guy in another company, but that’s what AEW promos are about sometimes.

“Jungle Boy” Jack Perry was interviewed by Renee Paquette with Jack talking about how Christian Cage doesn’t get to decide when this is over. Jack mentioned he put Luchasaurus through a table last week. When Renee mentioned Full Gear, Jungle Boy said he had a challenge for Christian and Luchasaurus this coming Friday on Rampage.

Let’s Hear from Jon Moxley

Jon Moxley, the AEW World Champion, made his entrance in the back part of the arena with William Regal joining him. Moxley walked in through the crowd as he made his way into the ring. Regal was in the ring with Moxley as well.

Moxley asked Regal how old he was when he met Regal, Moxley said he was 25 or 26 and Regal nodded. Moxley said he kept running his mouth, he wanted to be a tough guy in pro wrestling and he tried to pick a fight with Regal. Moxley said that did not go well at all because Regal tortured him, brutalized him and that pissed off Moxley because it made him find out where he was on the food chain. Moxley talked about how when he got another shot, he hit Regal with a knee to the face that knocked him. Regal said at the time “now the real work begins.”

Moxley asked Regal who that kid reminds him of and Moxley said it reminds them of Maxwell Jacob Friedman. Moxley talked about how he beat MJF in 2020, then beat him up and sent him packing. Moxley said all these months later, MJF is back later for another shot. Moxley talked about how MJF was having an existential identity crisis. Moxley ripped on MJF wearing a fake diamond ring while wearing clothes his mom buys him at JC Penney. Moxley said he’s a multi-millionaire and multi-time World Champion so you can fool him. Moxley said that MJF has no idea what it feels like to have any weight on his back. Moxley also mentioned that MJF calls himself “The Devil” and Moxley was amused by that. Moxley talked about how he has seen The Devil, he has met him, he has looked him in the eyes and seen some bad people do some very bad things. Moxley looked into the camera telling MJF he is not that at all. Moxley talked about how he wants MJF to become a leader. Moxley said he’s worried about what MJF has in his guts. Moxley told MJF that everything he has done up to this point has been easy. That was it.

Analysis: The promo was solid by Moxley, but nothing that special. I think this rivalry could have used a face-to-face promo exchange. Moxley saying he’s met The Devil and MJF is not that guy was a good line because it tells us that Moxley is not worried about MJF cheating to win or anything like that. I think MJF certainly could win that match at Full Gear and he might do it.

A video aired about The Young Bucks and Kenny Omega showing videos/photos from their lives and careers while the Full Gear graphics were part of it. A graphic was shown of The Elite with Full Gear graphics as well.

Analysis: That should lead to The Elite in a match at Full Gear. I assume it will be for the Trios Tag Team Titles against the champions Death Triangle since they have nothing else going on. No match was announced.

Bryan Danielson did a pre-tape promo yelling about disrespect he’s dealing with from Sammy Guevara, Chris Jericho, Daniel Garcia, Wheeler Yuta (who is part of the same Blackpool Combat Club with Danielson) and talked about how he was going to beat Sammy later.

Jamie Hayter (w/Dr. Britt Baker D.M.D. & Rebel) vs. Skye Blue (w/Toni Storm)

Hayter is facing the Interim AEW Women’s Champion Toni Storm at Full Gear, so Storm was with Blue. The action spilled to the floor quickly with Hayter sending Blue into the barricade. Blue shoved Hayter into the ring post. Blue hit a rising knee strike, Baker grabbed Blue’s foot with Excalibur saying the referee Rick Knox didn’t see it and Hayter hit a backbreaker along with an overhead suplex. They went to a picture-in-picture break.

(Commercial)

Blue was aggressive with some kicks on the two women on the floor, a kick on Hayter and a cross body block off the top. They did some spot with a spinning kick that looked like it was messed up or something. I don’t know what happened. Blue hit a Code Red powerbomb for a two count. Hayter got a rollup followed by a forearm to the had. Hayter with punches, Blue with an elbow strike, Hayter with a forearm again, Blue with a kick and Hayter hit a rising boot to the face. Blue was on the shoulders, then she tried to get out of it and Hayter hit a ripcord lariat for the pinfall win after seven minutes.

Winner by pinfall: Jamie Hayter

Analysis: ** It was a bit sloppy at times, but I think Blue has a lot of potential as a young talent that keeps improving. Hayter is very good. They keep booking Hayter as a heel even though the fans clearly want to cheer her. Hayter is getting the title match at Full Gear so obviously, she was going to win here. It was another match where nearly half of it was shown in picture-in-picture instead of full screen.

Post match, Hayter stomped on Blue a bit and Storm chased Hayter out of the ring.

Analysis: This is another Full Gear match where they need a better story.

A promo aired from Brian Cage and Dante Martin talking about their World Title Eliminator Tournament on Rampage.

Lance Archer interrupted a potential interview with Ricky Starks by ramming him into a garage. Archer said “everybody dies” and left. Archer faces Starks in the World Title Eliminator Tournament.

Analysis: It seems like they bring Archer back every two months, they treat him like a threat and then he loses.

Sammy Guevara made his entrance with his wife Tay Melo. Sammy is in the Fatal 4-Way Match for the ROH World Title at Full Gear with ROH World Champion Chris Jericho, Claudio Castagnoli and Bryan Danielson. That led to the entrance of my favorite wrestler in this company, “American Dragon” Bryan Danielson, who is 25-6-2 in his AEW career. William Regal was on commentary.

2 Out Of 3 Falls Match: Bryan Danielson vs. Sammy Guevara (w/Tay Melo)

Bryan beat Sammy two weeks ago on Dynamite. This time it’s a 2/3 Falls match. Bryan and Sammy exchanges strikes, Bryan with a headbutt and an uppercut. Bryan worked over Sammy in the corner with chops, kicks and a whip into the turnbuckle. Bryan jumped off the top, Sammy avoided a charging Bryan and Sammy hit a dropkick to knock Bryan out of the ring. Bryan got back into it with a missile dropkick to knock Sammy out of the ring. Bryan went for a dive, but Tay was standing there on the floor, so that bought Sammy some time and Sammy threw a chair at Bryan’s head leading to a DQ. Bryan won the first fall because of the DQ.

Bryan Danielson leads 1-0

Sammy grabbed the microphone at ringside and jabbed the end of the microphone into Bryan’s head. The camera panned away so that Bryan could do a blade job and they went to a break.

(Commercial)

Sammy was in control while Bryan was bleeding above his left eyebrow. Sammy hit a running knee. Sammy picked up Bryan and hit the GTH (Go to Hell) knee to the face for the pinfall win after seven minutes of action. It was tied 1-1 at this point.

Match is tied 1-1

Sammy worked over Bryan with chops as Excalibur announced that Darby Allin & Sting vs. Jay Lethal & Jeff Jarrett is official for Full Gear. Sammy set up Bryan on the top rope, Sammy slipped on a leap to the top and Bryan knocked Sammy down with a headbutt. Bryan jumped off the top with a headbutt, Sammy moved and Sammy applied a Crossface submission. Bryan tried to fight it, Sammy held onto the submission and Bryan managed to get to the ropes. Bryan was bleeding from the nose too. After they got back up, Sammy went for a move off the ropes, but Bryan hit a jumping knee. Both guys were down selling as they went to a picture-in-picture break.

(Commercial)

The match continued with Bryan suplexing Sammy into the turnbuckle to place Sammy upside down. Bryan worked over Sammy with kicks leading to “yes” kicks and a running dropkick to the head. While Bryan was by the turnbuckle, Sammy broke free and hit a rising knee that knocked Bryan off the turnbuckle to the floor. Sammy jumped off the top with a Shooting Star Press onto a standing Bryan with Sammy grazing Bryan’s arm. Bryan sold it anyway. Back in the ring, Sammy jumped off the top, Bryan caught him in the LeBell Lock and Sammy managed to get to the ropes. Bryan got into his kick routine again, Sammy ducked a roundhouse kick and Sammy hit a jumping knee. Bryan blocked a GTH attempt and Bryan hit a reverse hurricanrana as the fans rallied behind Bryan. Bryan went for the running knee, but Sammy countered it and Sammy applied the Liontamer submission briefly and then it was more of a Boston Crab. Bryan crawled to the ropes to break the submission. Sammy went for the GTH again, Bryan landed on his feet and Bryan hit a running Busaiko Knee to the face. Sammy countered a move by going to the top rope and hit a spinning DDT. That was impressive. Sammy up top, he jumped off with a senton bomb, Bryan got the knees up and Bryan hammered Sammy with elbows to the head. Bryan applied the LeBell Lock submission, Bryan had a tight grip across the face, Sammy was trying to fight it and Bryan pulled back on the right arm so that both arms were captured. Sammy quit so the referee called for the bell.

Winner: Bryan Danielson – 2 Falls to 1

Analysis: ****1/4 A great match as usual any time Bryan Danielson is in a match that long. Sammy can go in the ring too, so I’m not surprised they had a terrific match like this. Bryan had a lot of visual scars with the blood around the eye along with a bloody nose. Sometimes when I watch Sammy matches he doesn’t sell as well as I would like at times, but this time he did a really nice job of it. Lots of counter moves by both guys. Bryan winning was what I expected since he could use a win.

Bryan Danielson celebrated the win while Excalibur screamed about stuff coming up on Rampage. End show.

 

Three Stars of the Show

  1. Bryan Danielson
  2. Sammy Guevara
  3. MJF

 

The Scoreboard

This Week: 7.25 out of 10

Last Week: 7

 

Final Thoughts

It was a good show for the most part with a terrific main event between Bryan Danielson and Sammy Guevara that got a lot of time. I wouldn’t call it a great Dynamite like some of their better episodes. Bryan is always going to have great matches when he gets a lot of time. I liked the interview from MJF a lot, but not doing it in front of the crowd likely upset the fans that paid to be there. Jon Moxley’s promo was fine although I think they really could have used an MJF-Moxley face to face promo to build their match more. They only have one Dynamite left before Full Gear.

I’m happy for Saraya announcing she is cleared to wrestle. That has been teased for the last month, so they finally got around to announcing her match against Britt Baker at Full Gear. I’m also going to be nervous for her. I hope she’s okay physically.

There were some parts of the show that weren’t that interesting and I think Jeff Jarrett’s promo taking shots at WWE people was really lame. The teases of The Elite being back might excite some AEW fans too.

The next AEW pay-per-view is Full Gear on Saturday, November 19th. Here’s what we know so far.

* AEW World Championship: Jon Moxley (c) vs. Maxwell Jacob Friedman

* ROH World Championship: Chris Jericho (c) vs. Claudio Castagnoli vs. Bryan Danielson vs. Sammy Guevara

* AEW Tag Team Championships: The Acclaimed (Anthony Bowens and Max Caster) (c) vs. Swerve In Our Glory (Keith Lee and Swerve Strickland)

* AEW Interim Women’s Championship: Toni Storm (c) vs. Jamie Hayter

* Darby Allin & Sting vs. Jay Lethal & Jeff Jarrett

* Saraya vs. Dr. Britt Baker D.M.D.

* AEW TBS Championship: Jade Cargill (c) vs. Nyla Rose

* AEW World Title Eliminator Tournament Finals

There was another match added at the Rampage taping, but I’ll leave that out for now since it’s a spoiler.
