All Elite Wrestling (AEW) was coming off of Homecoming last week with Dynamite live from Pittsburgh! Last week was a fairly entertaining show, with the close to the show leaving everyone confused in regards to the future of Cody Rhodes.

As for this week, AEW announced quite the show with the matches being Kris Statlander defeating Nyla Rose, The Elite beating Dante Martin & The Sydal Brothers and The Good Brothers successfully defending the Impact Tag Team Titles against Dark Order. Also announced was Darby Allin overcoming Daniel Garcia and the fourth labour of Jericho with Chris Jericho taking on Wardlow with MJF in his corner.

As always the Diffusing Dynamite team of Joseph Casciaro and Gavin Axelrod have you covered for all things AEW!

For over a year now it seemed to be that AEW was building towards the main event of All Out being Kenny Omega defending the AEW World Championship against ‘Hangman’ Adam Page. However, after the last two weeks that will not be happening and to the shock of many it has been announced that the main event of All Out will be Omega defending against Christian Cage.

However, on Dynamite, it was also announced that All Out will not be the first bout between Omega and Cage. This Friday on the first episode of Rampage in the first-ever match it will be Kenny Omega defending the Impact World Championship against Cage.

Once again that was not all, Jungle Boy who was out supporting Cage then grabbed a microphone himself. He said that next week on Dynamite The Young Bucks would be defending the AEW Tag Team Championships against himself and Luchasaurus!

Malakai Black is not done with Cody yet

Malakai Black had a video package to talk about his destruction of Cody Rhodes last week. Black said he promised his match with Cody would be quick, short and violent and that’s what it was, but he said society has a narrative that he who speaks the truth is a fool, but there is no room for fools in the house of black.

He then lifted up the boot of Cody and said it looks like he has one foot in the grave and he wants Cody to let him know when he wants him to put the second foot in. He then said to whoever he chooses to appear in front of next he will make them realize the volume of their voice is so low and they have been arguing with God!

For weeks now Andrade El Idolo has been trying to steal The Lucha Bros from PAC and Death Triangle. However, this has not worked in his favour but tonight Andrade with Chavo Guerrero at his side announced that at All Out they will show PAC that Andrade is boss when they face on the pay-per-view!

Q.T. Marshall was granted a segment tonight with Tony Schiavone because he was supposed to apologize to Tony for dumping a protein shake on his head. However, QT did the opposite and requested an apology from Tony instead.

When Tony didn’t apologize QT and The Factory attacked Tony’s son sitting ringside, but out for the save came ‘No more B.S.’ Paul Wight. Wight laid out Aaron Solow and stood up for the Schiavone's!

Jericho reaches Labour 5

The main event of Dynamite was the fourth labour of Jericho with Chris Jericho facing Wardlow with MJF in his corner. If Jericho would be able to win this labour he would reach labour five and finally get his rematch with MJF.

MJF made an attempt to get involved in the main event catching the attention of the referee, so as the referee was throwing MJF out Jericho got the advantage. Jericho hit Wardlow with Floyd his baseball bat and then landed Judas Effect for the win.

Jericho will now get MJF next week one-on-one, but that was not all for him on this Dynamite as Shawn Spears, Wardlow and MJF would then beat him down. It took Sammy Guevara and Jake Hager running out to finally stop the attack, but then MJF grabbed a microphone.

MJF said Jericho did reach labour five and will get to face him, but he now got to hear the stipulation. Next week, when they face Jericho is now allowed to walk out to his Judas theme song and he cannot use his Judas Effect finishing move.

MJF is stacking the advantages in his own favour and he told Jericho that next week he will go face to face with his successor!


Next Week: MJF vs Chris Jericho, Young Bucks defend AEW Tag Team Championships against Jurassic Express, Shawn Spears vs Sammy Guevara and Darby Allin & Sting vs 2.0!
