First off, before we get to tonight’s show, congratulations to Cody and Brandi Rhodes who are expecting. Some happy news for your Wednesday night.

Gotta tell you, I loved the Hangman/Silver/Reynolds vs. Hardy/Private Party match. That sequence and chemistry Hangman had with his new uhhh…friends was just terrific and I couldn’t believe we didn’t get a pin from it. I was genuinely surprised. My Dark Order bros lost but, I can’t wait to see what’s next.
It was great to see Sting come out and save Cody from Team Taz. I’m not sure what we’ll see Sting do next, but goodness it’s just great to have him on TV again. There is also an incredible dynamic he has with Darby Allin. It could make for a real nice hand off when this legend is ready to call it a career.
That ambush from Dr. Britt Baker DMD on Thunder Rosa was strong feud building. And that brutal attack certainly let us know who we’re supposed to root for. Baker is such a good heel and that was straight up mean.
We didn’t get an Inner Circle implosion this week, as Chris Jericho, MJF, and the rest of the guys took care of business against the Best Friends and Friends. Orange Cassidy is the greatest announcer of all time by the way.
According to AEW, Wardlow was attending to a family matter and the fans missed him.
And then we have to give it up for our champion, Kenny Omega, and Impact boss Don Callis, who are being five star villains right now. They are playing us so well at the moment, and I also liked that we got Joey Janela and Sonny Kiss in the main event spotlight. They’re strong workers and that was a great scrap to end the night.
We’re getting a holiday bash next weekend.
But don’t forget. The NBA is back and our show will likely get pushed. Check with AEW social media and adjust accordingly.
