Cody Rhodes and Penta El Cero Miedo were at each other’s throats last week. The luchador claimed to rip Cody’s arm before he could carry his unborn daughter, which enraged Cody. The Prince of Pro Wrestling and the Lord of Lucha Libre settled their differences in the ring in a terrific match.

Rhodes pulled out all the stops; a Mexican Destroyer, the Cody Cutter, Cross Rhodes, and a Gringo Killer. Penta showed off his resilience by kicking out of everything but fell victim to a surprise roll-up while he celebrated by snapping Cody’s arm.

After this match, Jade Cargill destroyed a jobber to secure her second win on Dynamite.

MJF announces the name of his stable in AEW

After destroying the Inner Circle last week, MJF and his new friends came to the ring to put the AEW locker room on notice. MJF and the newly formed Pinnacle will be the best, the baddest, and the backbone of AEW for years to come.

The Salt of the Earth also staked a claim for every championship in AEW, before declaring the Inner Circle’s locker room to be theirs.

Matt Hardy picks up a big win in 10-man tag team action

Matt Hardy‘s ongoing recruitment drive has led him to sign three big names in AEW. The Butcher, the Blade, and the Bunny are now a part of ‘Big Money’ Matt Hardy’s group.

Along with Private Party, the new group picked up a big win on Dynamite against Jurassic Express and AEW’s newest tag team, Bear Country. Hardy picked up the win with the Twist of Fate after Private Party took care of Marko Stunt with a Gin and Juice.

After the match, Hardy’s fellow WWE alumni Christian Cage cut a promo addressing his altercation with Kenny Omega last week. He claimed Omega is on borrowed time as the champion, and he’s coming for his title.

Jon Moxley and Eddie Kingston put away the Good Brothers on AEW

Former friends-turned-rivals-turned-friends again, Eddie Kingston and Jon Moxley picked up a big win on Dynamite. The two knocked off the Good Brothers in a physical match, unsurprising of the men involved in the match.

Kingston caught Anderson with an inside cradle for the win, which led to an attack from the Good Brothers and Kenny Omega. As Omega wrapped a chair around Kingston’s neck and tried to cause him severe injury, the Young Bucks ran to the ring and stopped Omega. Kenny shoved the Bucks once they refused to throw up the ‘Too Sweet’ sign.

Lance Archer challenges Darby Allin

Darby Allin and Sting walked out, and Tony Schiavone interviewed them. Allin claimed he wants to pay tribute to Brodie Lee and will defend the title against any member of the Dark Order. Out came Lance Archer, who staked his claim for a title shot.

Out came Team Taz to pick a fight with their former rivals. Instead, Brian Cage paid respect to the Icon for being the Icon, much to the chagrin of his teammates. Cage shoved them away and walked backstage, sowing seeds of dissent in their group as well.

After the segment, Rey Fenix picked up an easy win over Angelico.

Thunder Rosa and Britt Baker put on a brutal, yet brilliant match to close out this stunning episode of AEW Dynamite. Both women stopped at nothing to torture and tear up the other.

Both women busted out some impressive moves; Rosa hit Baker with a super DVD through a ladder, but Baker hit her with a Curb Stomp on top of a chair. Baker’s face was covered in blood, but that didn’t stop Rosa from planting her with the Fire Thunder Driver through a table for the big win.
