This week’s Dynamite opens with a video of Cody sitting in front of a monitor showing clips of Lance Archer, Kip Sabian, Sammy Guevara, Darby Allin, and Dustin Rhodes. He says they’re all known factors, but who is he? He asks where he fits in all this? Just the three-star ring general who broke the throne because he was afraid to sit in it? He asks if he’s too comfortable, too complacent? He praises TNT for comissioning a new TNT Championship and says fans will criticize it but history will remember them as a company who introduced another major title less than a year into its life. He says he has to prove to himself where he fits in AEW in the TNT Championship Tournament.
Before Darby can even get to the ring, Sammy attacks him with a dive to the outside. Allin gets thrown into the barricade and Jericho reminds everyone that this is payback for when Allin attacked Sammy at Revolution before the bell. Guevara pulls a ladder from under the ring and bridges it from the apron to the guard rail. Sammy lifts Darby and puts him on the ladder, then goes to the top rope and leaps with a splash to Darby on the ladder!

We get a video of Matt Hardy at his compound. He says he laid out a proposition to Chris Jericho two weeks ago, inviting him to the compound for the Ultimate Deletion, but he hasn’t heard a reply. He says Damascus can tell Jericho is scared and the only one of his circle that has the testicle to mention him by name is Sammy Guevara, the false god. So if Jericho doesn’t want to come, then Sammy can. He says that if Damascus is too intimidating for Jericho, then he can talk to the Matt Hardy vessel. We then see regular Matt standing in a leather jacket, saying he has immense respect for Jericho, Kenny Omega, Cody, and so on, the pillars of AEW. He says AEW is a platform for the future, a place that’s trying to do something great for the next generations. So if Jericho wants to send Sammy Guevara, a future Chris Jericho, to the Hardy compound he will kick his ass.

We see Cody sitting at a desk and he’s listeningt to a call from Dustin Rhodes, who says if he can’t beat Kip Sabian tonight he will retire. He says he feels great at 51 but if he can’t beat a son of a bitch like Kip, then he has no business in the game.
