Hangman Page and Ricky Starks squared off the first-time ever in the squared circle in the opening match on Dynamite. It was a nice fun contest between the two men, but Starks had a few extra pair of hands at ringside in the form on Team Taz. However, having Team Taz at ringside did not faze ‘The Cowboy.’

Starks was well prepared for Hangman, but the latter showed why he’s got more experience under his belt. Earlier in the match, Starks tweeked his ankle countering a belly-to-belly suplex. Hangman took advantage of the ankle injury and made ‘Absolute’ Ricky Starks tap out. After the match Team Taz jumped Hangman Page. Thankfully, The Dark Order came out before any more damage could be done.

Penta El Zero Miedo def. Trent

The next match on the card was between two wrestlers whose factions have recently reignited their past rivalry. Penta and Trent had a very hard hitting and fast-paced match. It was a, ‘what you can do, I can do better’ matchup between the two. Just as the match was finding it’s groove, it came to a halt.

In the concluding moments of the match, Trent got distraced by Alex Abrahamentes at ringside. This allowed Penta to hit Trent with a mic, and then follow it up with a package piledriver to get the victory. We’re sure this is just the beginning of another leg of the Best Friends and Death Triangle feud.

The Pinnacle’s sit-down interview with Jim Ross on AEW Dynamite

AEW Color Commentator and wrestling veteran Jim Ross interviewed The Pinnacle last night. During the interview JR asked about the Blood and Guts match against The Inner Circle. MJF said Tully Blanchard is working on playbook for the match, while he mocked Jericho’s comments from last week.

MJF said Chris Jericho outsmarted everyone in the industry for three decades, but he could not outsmart him. The ‘Salt of the Earth’ said he has already beat Jericho in the past. He added that he’s the greatest overall, just not at his age. MJF said he’s a mark for Jericho’s spot, and he will take on May 5 at Blood and Guts.

Hikaru Shida def. Tay Conti – AEW Women’s World Championship

Hikaru Shida defended her AEW Women’s World Championship against Tay Conti in a terrific match on AEW Dynamite. Both women stole the show with their performances, and truly showed how much efforts they’re putting in each day to make the AEW Women’s Division as strong and respectable as NXT or Impact.

This is one match that had some excellent action from start to finish. We all know Hikaru Shida is too good, but no one expected Tay Conti to put on such a stellar performance as well. At the end, the champion prevailed after catching the challenging with a knee strike right in the middle of the eyes!

Chris Jericho and Inner Circle interview on AEW Dynamite

Tony Schiavone caught up with Chris Jericho and the Inner Circle for a special interview like JR conducted with The Pinnacle. Unlike The Pinnacle, the Inner Circle made fun of The Pinnacle get beat up by Inner Circle last week. They talked about the Blood and Guts match, and ‘Le Champion’ sent a final message.

Chris Jericho said that The Pinnacle will learn an unforgettable lesson in violence at Blood and Guts. He concluded saying, “We’re crazier than you, MJF, and you know it!”

Christian Cage def. Powerhouse Hobbs

Christian Cage took on his last week’s attacker, Powerhouse Hobbs, in a one on one match on Dynamite. The match was rather a quick one than others on the card. It started off pretty normally with a collar and elbow tie-up, but then things escalated quickly.

Hobbs looked to pick the win, but Christian got on his back for a sleeper. Hobbs tried to get out of it, but Cage pushed him on the turnbuckle and then countered into a Killswitch/Unprettier to get the pinfall victory.

TNT Champion Darby Allin is a fighting champion. After defeating Matt Hardy in a Falls Count Anywhere match last week, Allin defended his championship against The Jurassic Express’ Jungle Boy. It was a terrific match between the two, but the champion prevailed after countering a Sunset flip into the Last Supper.

After the match, Scorpio Sky and Ethan Page ran down to the ring and brutalized Darby Allin. Surprisingly, Lance Archer came out for Darby’s save, but was quickly contained thanks to a low-blow. Thankfully, ‘The Icon’ Sting returned and attacked everyone with his trademark baseball bat.

So this was all the action from this week’s edition of AEW Dynamite. Did you like the show? Do you think they will surpass their last week’s 1.2 Million viewers? Let us know in the comments below!
