AEW Dynamite ended with an action-packed parking lot brawl this week. The Best Friends were able to finally defeat Santana and Ortiz, but it took a lot of effort. Who was responsible for putting it together?
Trent’s back was cut up after taking a bump on a car windshield. There were crazy bumps throughout until the Best Friends were able to win with the assistance of Orange Cassidy. This match took a lot to put together, and several people had a hand in its creation.
During Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer explained that it was originally supposed to be the Lucha Bros in the match, but plans were changed to make Trent’s Mom’s van a part of things which made a parking lot brawl a perfect blow-off.
“It was originally supposed to be Santana and Ortiz against Pentagon and Fenix, but I believe Santana suggested doing it with the Best Friends. Jerry Lynn had a lot to do with this match. He was involved with a lot of the ideas, but all those guys had ideas.”
“Essentially the concept of the match was Tony Khan’s idea, the match itself was some Tony Khan and Jerry Lynn and these four guys putting it together, but man, I mean it was just fantastic.”
It might take a while before AEW can top that parking lot brawl. There were a lot of ideas that went into that match, and originally, there were different wrestlers in the when it was first envisioned. Things seemed to work out as Dynamite ended with another bloody battle.
