In the opening contest of Dynamite Bryan Danielson made quick work of Alan ‘5’ Angels and he then proceeded to boost himself. He said last week he knocked Colt Cabana’s tooth out, this week he snapped Angels’ MCL and next week he’ll kick John Silver’s head in.

Danielson then said in two weeks at Winter is Coming he will kick Adam ‘Hangman’ Page’s head in and take his title. Page then attempted to run in on Danielson, but he was stopped by Silver and he came running instead.

However, Danielson fled from the ring and said he won’t share the ring with someone like Silver. He finally then got in Page’s face saying he would love to slap him across the face, but the people of Atlanta don’t deserve to see it. The clash between Page and Danielson should be one for the ages.

Punk vs MJF is heating up

CM Punk had an entertaining match with Lee Moriarty on Dynamite in which he picked up the win, but post-match MJF had something to say. MJF said Punk is not really the best in the world when he is struggling to beat Moriarty and QT Marshall.

He said all he is the best in the world in is trying to get in Britt Baker’s pants, and he looks just as confused as she would if he got her in the bedroom. He then kept calling him P.G. Punk until Punk picked up a microphone himself.

Punk said MJF can talk all he wants about him struggling to win fights because both guys he faced are better than him. He then told him to bring his ass in the ring and he would kick his ass back to Long Island.

MJF refused to join him in the ring and said Punk needs him to bring a spark to his career that he hasn’t had since 2011. MJF then said next week he would win the Dynamite battle royale in the best city in the world, Long Island, saying him in Long Island is better than Punk in Chicago.

MJF then took a dig at Punk’s dog, Larry, threatening to put his dog to sleep if he’s brought around him. Punk then started heading towards MJF but out came Wardlow and MJF hid behind him continuing to talk smack. Punk is waiting for the day he can get his hands on MJF.

Superkliq strikes again

Adam Cole was supposed to be on commentary tonight, but after doing his full entrance Orange Cassidy joined him on the stage. Both men were in each other's face until The Young Bucks tried to sneak attack Cassidy, which made him turn his back on Cole.

Cole then landed a low blow dropping Cassidy and he was then hit with a double superkick by The Bucks. This drew Best Friends from the back to make the save, and this feud is really starting to heat up.

Chris Jericho was talking backstage about Rampage where he helped Eddie Kingston fight off Daniel Garcia and 2point0. However, in the middle of the interview, Garcia and 2point0 attacked and laid Jericho out backstage with a steel chair shot. By Jericho lending a hand he has gained some new enemies.

The main event of Dynamite was an epic Atlanta street fight between Cody Rhodes and Andrade El Idolo. The match was very entertaining and ended in quite an extreme fashion.

Cody landed a reverse superplex through a flaming table and was able to get the win over Andrade. This was a great close to another great episode of Dynamite!
