This week’s Dynamite opens with Justin Roberts introducing Cody for the TNT Championship open challenge! Roberts introduces Cody but before he can introduce his opponent, out comes Eddie Kingston.
Kingston says it’s easy for Cody to be a Champion and to talk about grinding because he’s grown up around legends like Arn Anderson. He knows nothing about pro wrestling or grinding. He says everyone Cody has wrestled so far has been a child but he’s a grown ass man. He threatens Arn and says Tony Khan has paid him to come here and beat Cody’s ass. And Tony told him he can have a no disqualification match, so long as Cody accepts.
The second the bell rings Kingston attacks Cody and knocks him outside. Kingston chops Cody against the barricade, then back inside the ring for more chops in the corner. Cody fires back with a drop-down uppercut, then a dropkick. Cody takes the weight belt off and Kingston rolls outside.
Cody chases after and Kingston whips Cody with his own belt a few times, then pulls back the padding on the floor. Kingston looks for a powerbomb but Cody counters with a back drop on the concrete. Cody lands some hands but Kingston rakes the eyes and sends Cody back inside for a stiff lariat.
Eddie hits a belly-to-back suplex, then forces Cody to the corner and lands blows to the gut. Cody eats a few boots to the head as he attempts to get up. Kingston applies a facelock, then beats Cody down with forearms. Eddie batters Cody with more forearms as he lays on the middle rope, then turns him inside out with a clothesline.
Kingston applies a submission and grinds Cody down. The Champion fights up but gets the eyes raked. Cody counters a back suplex and hits a chop block. Cody slams Kingston into the buckles, then the challengers feigns a knee injury and low-blows Cody. Kingston goes under the ring and grabs a bag full of thumb-tacks.
Kingston looks to powerslam Cody onto the tacks, but Cody escapes. Kingston counters a vertebreaker and hits Cody with a powerbomb onto the pins! Cody’s arms and back are mangled. Cody slowly gets to his feet and Kingston hits a backdrop suplex but Cody bounces right back up and hits a clothesline. Cody stands over Kingston and slaps his face over and over, then applies a Figure Four and Eddie taps.
AEW World Champion Jon Moxley will be talking to us live after the break.
Jon Moxley cuts a promo backstage. He says in a business renowned for people being full of it, he prides himself on being honest. He does what he says. He promised he would snap Brian Cage’s arm and, when he had him in the armbar, he could hear the tendons snapping, a sound he loves. But Taz made the right call and threw the towel in. But next time, he’s not letting go.
MJF comes out for his match with relative unknown Griff Garrison. MJF tells him to introduce himself and calls him “Jungle Man”. MJF then mocks him and cuts a pretty basic promo, and then Garrison reminds MJF he lost at Fyter Fest.
MJF cheap shots Griff at the outset and beats him into the corner, then hits an arm-drag into the turnbuckles. MJF hits a belly-to-belly, followed by a knee drop as we head to the break.
Back live and MJF is still beating on Griff. He grabs a microphone and says they got off on the wrong foot, he lost his temper and he’s sorry. MJF says he didn’t lost, never been pinned or submitted. He asks Griff to tell the fans he’s undefeated but Garrison slaps the microphone away. MJF stands on his hand and asks again but he doesn’t answer. Once more and Griff acquiesces.
Griff attempts a roll-up but MJF kicks out and hits him with a lariat. MJF unloads some ground and pound, then hits him with the Heatseeker piledriver for the win.
Tony Schiavone interviews Reba for an update on Britt Baker, who allegedly had surgery recently. Before she can say anything, Baker yells at her, so Tony interviews Britt instead. She says Shida busted her nose but she returned the following week. She says it’s a conspiracy but conspirators be damned, she’s going to make the greatest sports comeback of all time.
Taz comes to the ring with Brian Cage. Taz says they’ve had a very difficult week and they had a lot of heated discussions. And to be frank, Cage considered firing him but cooler heads prevailed. He gives Moxley credit for his armbar but he refused to let his machine tear his bicep for a second time. He stands by what he did as a business decision. But Cage didn’t tap and he never would. No surrender.
Darby Allin interrupts and comes to the ring but Ricky Starks attakcs him on the ramp. Starks beats Allin, then Cage powerbombs him on the ramp, then throws him into the ring. Starks slams Allin, then Cage grabs the skateboard, but out comes Moxley with a barbed wire bat and they retreat.
This summer there will be a 16-woman tag team tournament.
Chris Jericho is interviewed backstage and he is angry his white $7000 jacket is orange. He says he’s going to embarrass Cassidy for what he did, and The Inner Circle are going to embarrass Jurassic Express for laughing last week.
The match starts in the kitchen, where The Butcher and The Blade are working and The Bucks walk in. The four men start brawling and Butcher slams Matt into the walk-in door.

Matt dives out of the truck with a senton onto both of them. Blade gets thrown onto a bar in the concourse, then Butcher is hit with another tray.
There’s a wooden table set up nearby and they lay Butcher on it, then Matt jumps off the bar with a senton and the table doesn’t break. Blade tries to run away but gets caught by the Bucks as we head to the break.
We return to find The Bucks hit a sliced bread at ringside to Butcher. They attempt a Meltzer Driver at ringside but Butcher fights them off and Blade returns to hit them with a chair. A table is propped up against the barricade and the heels look to powerbomb Matt through it but he fights them off and hits a floatover stunner on the floor to Blade and Butcher gets taken out by a diving Nick.
The Bucks get another table and prop it against the barricade. Butcher counters a suplex attempt and suplexes both Bucks.

Jake Roberts and Lance Archer are interviewed backstage. Archer doesn’t answer a question, instead he runs into a dressing room and beats up everyone inside. Jake talks about how frustrated they are with not getting any chances in AEW. Sooner or later someone will take notice. Archer put a guy through a ceiling tile, then into a trash can.
Ivelisse attacks Diamante right as the bell rings and trash talks. Ivelisse hits a springboard arm-drag and then we get a split-screen promo from Big Swole at her home.

Both women trade chops on the floor, then brawl on the apron with Ivelissa hitting a kick that sends Diamante back into the ring. Diamante takes a headlock but Ivelisse fights up and talks trash. Both women trade chops and slaps, then Diamante slams Ivelisse for a two-count.
Ivelisse counters Diamante’s finisher for a powerbomb and a near-fall. Diamante catches Ivelisse with a small package after she talks trash and scores the pinfall.
Wow, what a sloppy match. If these girls are the future of AEW’s women’s division then it’s not going to get any better than it has been.
The match gets underway and Hangman smashes Angels with a few right hands. Angels counters Page, hits a leapfrog, but gets dropped with a big boot. Page hits a suplex for a two-count.

Lee comes to the ring and says he has been nothing but impressed by Page. Impressed by everything except for Kenny Omega’s presence when he’s in danger. He offers Hangman protection. Page says he’s not ready to join a cult and Brodi says he just made his bed. Lee and Cabana leave, but the other Dark Order members surround Page and beat him down. FTR come out and make the save. Omega comes out after the action is over and Hangman takes a beer from FTR.

Tag to Hager again, who takes a headlock but quickly let’s go and bends the leg of the dino.
