The Feb. 24 edition of AEW Dynamite was highlighted by a Face of the Revolution ladder match qualifier

All Elite Wrestling (AEW) was back tonight with another episode of Dynamite as they continue to build towards Revolution March. 7. There was a lot of news surrounding AEW today and I’m sure it made people very excited to tune in.

Announced for the card was Dr. Britt Baker vs Nyla Rose in the women’s eliminator tournament, ‘Hangman’ Adam Page vs Isiah Kassidy, Jake Hager vs Brandon Cutler, Jon Moxley vs Ryan Nemeth, and a Face of the Revolution ladder match qualifier with Rey Fenix vs Lance Archer.

We were also promised to get more information regarding AEW announcing the huge signing of Paul White (The Big Show in WWE) to a contract earlier today.

As per usual the Diffusing Dynamite team of Joseph Casciaro and Gavin Axelrod have all you need to know about AEW.

Mox is just as twisted as we thought

Jon Moxley opened Dynamite by making quick work of Ryan Nemeth and then delivered a promo towards the AEW World Champion, Kenny Omega. At Revolution, they are set to battle for the title in an exploding barbed wire deathmatch.

Mox said a match like this excites him and it is way too appealing to him, he said he is prepared to give all it takes and crawl through the barbed wire. He said he will give all he has and even if he does not win, he is prepared for war.

He knows he may not make it out of the match the same ever again and it may even take his career, but according to Mox that is a hell of a way to go out.

Darby Allin Returns

It was two weeks ago on Dynamite when we saw Team Taz place Darby Allin in a body bag and drag him with a car and then last week we saw Brian Cage powerbomb Sting in the ring. Tonight after Team Taz’s match, Sting came out to confront Team Taz as he dragged a body bag, everyone thought he was bringing Darby back, but inside the bag was a beat-down Hook, Taz’s son.

Then on a zip-line from the rafters came Darby Allin flying in with his skateboard and the battle was on. Darby beat down Ricky Starks on the outside and left Sting with Cage to get revenge.

Sting placed Cage in the corner to land a Stinger Splash and he then connected with a Scorpion Death Drop. The 61-year-old Sting is clearly in great shape and can still move at a very high speed. This was easily the best segment involving Sting, Darby and Team Taz and it upped the excitement for the Revolution street fight!

MJF and Jericho take it too far

Jake Hager of The Inner Circle defeated longtime friend of The Young Bucks, Brandon Cutler, but after the match the entire Inner Circle attacked Cutler. The Bucks made the save and cleaned house, then they called out MJF and Jericho only to have them pop up on the screen.

Jericho and MJF were standing in front of an AEW truck with The Bucks’ faces on it and they said they saw someone strolling around backstage. They then showed a beaten down and bloody father of The Young Bucks.

MJF and Jericho then proceeded to throw him into the truck and smear his blood on his two sons’ faces. MJF and Jericho took this feud to the next level with this move and I expect The Bucks to look for serious revenge.

Matt Hardy with a message for Page

Following ‘Hangman’ Adam Page defeating Matt Hardy’s pal Isiah Kassidy, Matt Hardy’s voice was heard throughout the arena. Hardy was saying that Page made a big mistake choosing Dark Order over Big Money Matt.

Matt then came through the ramp with a beaten-down Five of Dark Order and threw him off the stage through a table. John Silver and Alex Reynolds who were in Page’s corner for his match chased Matt into the back. Matt also said he will now attack every single member of Dark Order because of Page’s choice.

Nyla Rose off to the American Final

Tonight we saw the first semi-final match for the women’s eliminator tournament on the American side, with Nyla Rose vs Dr. Britt Baker. Gavin and I were both so sure that Baker would get the win here, but to our surprise, Rose won after hitting two Beast Bombs. Nyla will now face the winner of Riho and Thunder Rosa.

New Matches for Revolution

Two new matches were announced for the Revolution pay-per-view tonight, the first was Miro and Kip Sabian vs Orange Cassidy and Chuck Taylor and the other was a Casino Tag Team Battle Royale for a tag team title shot.

The main event of Dynamite was a qualifying match for the Face of the Revolution Ladder Match between Lance Archer and Rey Fenix. Both guys left their all in the ring and exchanged some very hard hit, but in the end, Archer came out on top after hitting Blackout. Archer now joins Cody Rhodes, Scorpio Sky and Penta El Zero M in the ladder match.

Next Week: SHAQ and Jade Cargill vs Cody Rhodes and Red Velvet, Max Caster vs 10 in a Face of the Revolution ladder match qualifier, FTR and Tully Blanchard vs Jurassic Express
