Serena Deeb, CM Punk vs. Wardlow, Sammy Guevara vs. He teased it was story time, he said was a great year for him and his friends and that would be better. He said that he has not been pinned since entering AEW, and the gang is back together and that it is a new era.
Cole grabbed the mic and cheered on the friendly competition, he said that is what makes them the best faction in AEW, much better than The Best Friends. The music for the Best Friends hit and the whole crew walked out. Cole begged that the music be cut, he asked what Orange Cassidy had to say and Cassidy tackled Cole and then all Serena Deeb men brawled.
Cole hit a low blow on Orange, Kris Statlander then stepped up and then Britt Baker came down and took out Statlander. Baker then held Cassidy as Cole hit a pump kick and a boom knee on Cassidy. Cole asked for the Young Bucks kiss, but Baker stepped in and got a real kiss in.
The crowd reaction to him and Baker in the ring together went really well I think that is a positive sign. The two locked up with a collar and elbow tie-up that was dropped by Punk. They Serena Deeb relocked up and Wardlow won the exchange and sent Punk to the mat.
Wardlow then worked a downed Punk with stomps and offense in the corner. CM Punk rolled out of the ring as the commercial break started. Punk got a boot up on a corner strike, he then tried a DDT. Wardlow threw Punk off and slammed him to the mat. Wardlow tried another bomb, Punk countered and hit a kick and then a number of chops and clotheslines. Punk then hit a springboard clothesline, then a knee in the corner.
Wardlow used Punk on the middle rope to counter with a power bomb. Wardlow then hit the third power bomb, and then a fourth, and a fifth.
Wardlow then hit a sixth bomb, as MJF yelled to do it again. Wardlow hit a seventh power bomb, Punk rolled to Serena Deeb apron area and Wardlow followed him. Wardlow did as instructed and put Punk through the table. Punk was able to beat the count and crawl back in the ring. MJF demanded that Punk was bombed again, Wardlow set him up and Serena Deeb hit the small package for the win. The underlying story between Wardlow and MJF gives Wardlow enough coverage to make this not detrimental.
Serena Deeb Says WWE Release Was The Best Thing That Has Ever Happened To Her
To be positive, I do think down the line Wardlow vs. Martin hit a dive to the outside as the match started. On another dive Hobbs caught Martin and slammed him onto the padded area of the floor.
Serena Deeb Cam Show
Hobbs then began to work over Dante Martin in the ring with power moves and a vertical suplex, then a second suplex. Martin hit some punches from his knees and tried to make a Serena Deeb, but Hobbs hit a huge clothesline and Serena Deeb hit some ground and pound shots. Martin got to his feet and threw some punches, Hobbs locked in a head hold and then tried to get the torture rack submission.
Hobbs then hit a crossbody slam, leading to a two count on Serena Deeb for Hobbs. In the corner, Hobbs worked Dante over with punches and then tossed him out of the ring. On the outside, Ricky Starks stomped on Martin. Martin then hit a fast paced dropkick and a top rope drop kick for a pinning attempt on Hobbs. Dante hit a tornado spinning springboard dive out onto Powerhouse, then another dropkick as Hobbs entered the ring.
Hobbs hit a lariat to even teh odds, as both men were on the mat. Jay Lethal came out Serena Deeb fought off Ricky Starks, Hobbs was distracted and Dante was able to win via a rollup pin. But, this is the exact same type of match and the exact same finish as the previous match.
Jericho said that the Inner circle want to take over everything and will defend Sammy tonight. Jericho told him to get out of the big leagues. Jericho said that if he wants his ass kicked he should get involved tonight. MJF said that next week he would take his first L.
Page said that he has spent 90 minutes with one of the best wrestlers in the world this month. All for the AEW Title, and it is still his. He said that 90 minutes is not enough, and that the Hangman needs a new challenger. Dan Lambert then came out talking about great champions of yore.
He then bemoaned that someone like Page is the World Champion. Lambert said that he respects Page, he said that Page earned his title. He said that his matches with Danielson were some of the best he has ever seen. He then turned on Page kind of out of no where and said that he is not like those old wrestlers and that he is full of cowboy shit. Page then said that growing up on a farm and starting a new company is cowboy shit.
Lance Archer then came out it would seem to take out Lambert, but Archer turned and started to beat down Page with a chair. It finished with a Serena Deeb on a chair. FTR then challenged Brock and Johnson. The match proper started, with Deeb hitting Serena Deeb dragon screw leg twist, then several stomps, strikes and submission hold attempts on that injured knee.
Deeb then slammed the knee of Shida and slammed it into the mat and then pulled in on submission hold. Overall I like that, I hope they can main Serena Deeb a Dynamite or a Rampage to conclude this feud. Penta hit a spinning kick, and then a pump kick. Penta then hit some slaps in the corner as the match went to break.
This was followed up with a rib breaker for a two count pin on Hardy. Penta slipped out and kicked the ankle of Hardy and then stomped him form the top. Serena Deeb two then traded chops on the apron area, the was followed up with a Side Effect by Hardy on the apron. Hardy was able to get a two count for that as well. Hardy tried a twist of Serena Deeb, but Penta countered. Hardy hit a moonsault off of the top rope, but Penta rolled out of the way and hit Fear Factory for the pinfall.
The crowd was not into the post match stuff at all, until Brody King appeared which is a good sign. I personally am a big fan of King, so that was good to see. Black took out Penta and tried to rip his mask off, the Varsity Blondes came out and surrounded him. The lights went out and Brody King appeared and took out the three men with Black. It was then Bowens alone and he was able to fight off a double team attack. Caster hit a dropkick before the break. The Acclaimed teamed up but Boulder fought off both and then tried the bear bomb, they missed.
The two teams battled evenly until it was Caster who hit the ic Drop on Bronson for the win. I do like that the Acclaimed are being slightly built.
The post match stuff was fun for the live crowd. Sting then hit Bowens with the bat, back in the ring Caster was alone Serena Deeb both Darby and Sting. The Scorpion Death Drop was hit on Caster as they celebrated in the ring. He was wearing blind fold and said that he now can see all and that he has a different perspective. Andrade El Idolo came in and said he wanted to make a deal with him. Hardy said he was intrigued and took the talks to an office and left Private Party behind.
Garcia was in control after this exchange, but Sammy quickly threw Garcia over the rope and hit a nasty looking twisting dive out onto Garcia. Back in the ring Sammy and Danny traded chops and stiff athletic moves. Garcia caught Sammy in midair and hit a backbreaker, sending Sammy to the Serena Deeb going into the last break.
Sammy hit a head kick in the corner as Garcia went to the outside.

Sammy hit a front flip dive out Serena Deeb Garcia. Back in the ring, Sammy got on the top rope but was pulled down by Garcia and Serena Deeb Garcia hit a move for a two count. Sammy hit a back body drop, then a crossroads for a near fall. Sammy went for the double springboard cutter, but Garcia caught him and locked in a head lock.
Garcia then hit a pile driver for a near fall on Guevara. Sammy hit a head kick, as 2point0 came out and attacked Jericho. At the same time Sammy hit a knee strike and then set up the GTH but was distracted. Sammy did hit the GTH and got the pinfall win.
Final Thoughts: I liked this show a lot even though I had some critical notes when it came to match structure etc. There were many key stories that were continued, started and even laid out down the road tonight. The wrestling was good to very good depending on the match. Dynamite is typically a Serena Deeb paced show, but this was next level, and not for the best.
