Diffusing Dynamite June 4

Huge debut highlights an otherwise lacklustre show

(AEW)


Almost one week after its marquee pay-per-view Double Or Nothing, All Elite Wrestling returned to Daily’s Place for another electric show.


Mark Henry addressed the AEW crowd, The Young Bucks took on PAC and Penta El Zero M and the Best Friends called out Kenny Omega.


Elsewhere on the card Red Velvet was successful in singles action and we heard from the new AEW Women’s World Champion Britt Baker.


The feud between Orange Cassidy and Kenny Omega also looks set to continue and Christian Cage and Jungle Boy were victorious over Private Party.


As always Gavin Axelrod and Joseph Casciaro have you covered on all things AEW!



The Bucks cheat to win

(AEW)


PAC and Penta vs The Young Bucks was an awesome way to kick of Friday's show. I would even argue it should've been the main event.


The feud between The Elite and Death Triangle is certainly far from over. AEW's Tag Team Champions were victorious Friday evening, but not in a clean fashion.


Brandon Cutler helped his friends get the victory by attack PAC with a camera. This allowed them to roll him up and pin him for the win.

The upset heard around Florida

(AEW)


Raise your hand if you had QT Marshall pinning Cody Rhodes on the Dynamite after Double Or Nothing.


That's exactly what happened Friday night, but it wasn't a clean win for Marshall. While the referee was distracted, Anthony Ogogo knocked Rhodes out allowing Marshall to squeak out a win.


The result of this match may have frustrated the viewers at home and it also set the tone for what ended up being a pretty forgettable show following a massive pay-per-view.



The idol arrives

(AEW)


Andrade El Idolo is All Elite and the potential matches we might see in the future is off the charts. This was far and away the biggest moment of the night.


El Idolo made his debuted thanks to a special introduction by Vickie Guererro, who seems to have been positioned as his new mouthpiece. The commentary did a great job hyping up the former La Sombra, noting how he was a former IWGP Intercontinental Champion and a dominant champion in CMLL. Those who have watched WWE will also know he is a former NXT and United States Champion too.


Little is known about Andrade's intentions in the company, but it's going to be great to see him reach his full potential in AEW.


The Doctor's deflating coronation

(AEW)


The championship celebration of Britt Baker may have fallen flat, but a new challenger emerged.


Former AEW Women's World Champion Nyla Rose was not having it Friday night and she upstaged the champion. Rose tossed all the burgers and popped the balloons.


A few months ago in the women's tournament Rose actually pinned Baker and this should be a great feud. Rose has been positioned as the gatekeeper of AEW's women's division, but she's rarely pinned.


The feud between these two should be the step in the right direction for Baker to solidify herself as a dominant champion.

The bullrope match between Nick Comoroto and Dustin Rhodes was a car crash of epic proportions.


It's refreshing to see AEW use match types that we don't see very often, rather than you standard no disqualification match. This match also helped further the feud between the Rhodes family and The Factory.


Comoroto has all the tools to be a big star in the company and his match tih Rhodes is a step in the right direction. Many have Anthony Ogogo pegged as the breakout star of the faction, but Comoroto isn't far behind.


This match wasn't a classic by any means, but it was fun. Plus we even got an appearance from the "master of the tornado DDT" Fuego Del Sol.


Comoroto didn't get the victory, but with the score tied after Friday night where do these two factions go next?
