AEW Dynamite TV Debut Highlights & Lowlights! | WrestleTalk


ah going live a e-dub use first ever TV episode of dynamite on TNT is in the books we’ve just watched it and we’re gonna go through the highlights the mid lights and the low lights it wasn’t a flawless show it started off spectacularly and then it’s so that sort of settled into a groove and then it had some really fantastic moments in the end that was mired with a fair bit of confusion and logic holes and just maybe not the best way of doing things I’m Ollie Davis I’m joined by Luke Owen and the first thing we’ll talk about was Jon Moxley was advertised for a promo segment on the show instead he turned up very early on into the six-man tag main event between Santana and Ortiz and Jericho versus the elites which of the young bucks and Kenny Omega where Kenny maker was about to do his Terminator dive to the outside jon moxley appeared behind him and then they just broad all the way through the crowd to the VIP area in the back yeah including some mop shots literally Kenny being the cleaner and taking out jon moxley and it led to a spot where Moxley gave him the double arm DDT through a glass coffee table look brutal it was really high angled – yeah obviously it was gimmicked glass because no one was bleeding immediately it looked great the whole crowd are really into it but then we got another ten minutes of the match that should have been DQ’d still going on it was so weird that it wasn’t like that’s because the referee was standing there going like what are you doing Jon get out of the ring Jon and then like Jon attacked him and they brawled and the ref was like I guess the match is carrying on then it’s now a three-on-two handicap match it was a really bizarre thing and someone actually just said in the in the chat so I was just kind of scrolling through stuff there would be like it felt like a WW match like in that sense of like there were times with WWE or like wow you know whatever we’ll just do this yeah and it’s wait kind of jarred with how much thought and attention had gone into other parts of the show yeah well there was so much attention and detail placed upon some of the finishes and the winds lost records some of the commentary was really really specific and and nicely observed but then you’d have these really large logic holes of no this is a DQ right now yeah that should have been thrown out it’s a three-on-two thing and then in a very wcwa at the end it’s just yeah but run-ins and then you had Cody Rhodes run down at the end Jericho won with the Judas elbow and they the heels start beating up the young bucks Cody Rhodes runs down to fight off Jericho because they had a scuffle earlier on Jericho attack Cody after his match of course they’re facing each other at full gear the next the first proper pay-per-view of the TV era for the aew World title and then Sammy Guevara Cody’s opponent earlier on came down to kick him in the balls Dustin Cody’s brother ran down to save them so you got the you knows mishmash and then the other well probably the biggest talking point out of all of this former WWE Champion World Heavyweight Champion sorry weld heavyweight champion Jack Swagger who now goes by his real name Jake Hager who’s been an MMA fighter really for the last couple of years certainly the last year he’s currently undefeated he’s – and OH but from what I gather cuz I’m not an MMA guy I’d already follow it but I can gather it was against not good guys but he does have an amateur wrestling background he was a NCAA champion I believe that’s sort of what he’s yeah gimmick was based on in WWE and he had a push beyond his experience I would say he won a world title way too early and then he settled into a mid card gimmick and he got over in the mid card gimmick but was never really given the opportunities since then but I don’t think anyone was really crying out for Oh can’t wait for that Jack Swagger returned I think what they were looking for was it’s a debut I think was what AMD wanted to have was like a debut – when to end this show problem is is like it’s not on the same level as Moxley and so therefore it’s gonna feel way less yeah in a way a bit of a step down so that was what happened Hagar ran in Jack Swagger of course attacked Dustin sort of focused most of his violence on Dustin which presumably will start a feud between the two and maybe a pay-per-view match down the line and this random assortment of heels Hagar Jericho Tito Santana on Ortiz and animus and Sammy stood tall at the end of the show over the co executive vice president’s carcasses and I I think what I really enjoyed this show actually after day you need to put out there I very much enjoyed the Chhath it was a really really a solid debut episode not a flawless episode as you said at the start but I did enjoy it overall but I think my main criticism I had against it was that it was very heel heavy and it was we had a beat-down after the Sammy oh sorry the Sammy Cody match we had mjf being a heel we had a pact beating hangman page and not letting go of the submission move like a heel we had niala beating down Rijo after the match sort of a heel move and then the show ended with all the heel standing tall and it just took me back to those few months but ago we had in WWE with when Raw was all heel heel heel and try to get all that he’ll hate and it’s sometimes you just want to see the good guys get their moments and I don’t think we ever really got that on this show yeah cuz one of those main ones was Rio overcoming Nayla rose to become the first ever the inaugural aew Women’s Champion that is a great moment yeah and it was it was it was a match that had its difficulties because there are a lot of bachas in there wasn’t exclusive to this match this match had the most punches I’d say but there are a lot of missed spots and botches throughout the night in all the matches with the exception of that main event I’d say hmm yeah that’s a good point the main event was somehow flawless with the young bucks doing all these flippety-flip it’s just the way Nick Jackson moves I reckon Nick Jackson’s actually making loads of mistakes but he’s so fast we just don’t see any of them yeah but Rio wins she’s the inaugural Women’s Champion but nine of Michael nakazawa started he’s so proud of a kind of promo afterwards gonna interview her in Japanese for the for the Japanese audience but then nyla Rose attacked Nakazawa and then attacked Rio as well she’s about to do a Death Valley driver it looked like on the ring apron the hardest part of the Ring when Kenny Omega runs down and saves Rio from that fate because of course Rio is a Kenny Omega project really he is pushing the joshi women’s wrestling the Japanese women’s wrestling in a double use women’s division on the countdown show that they had on Tuesday night there was their door they were tying Rijo and Kenny together because she was saying that Kenny was the the person who kind of convinced her to join a e/w and sign the contract with them yeah so but like you said that the opening match was fantastic Cody versus Sami loves that man that was my match of the night yes and and the worst thrilling bit obviously the moxie stuff it’s hate Hagar Jack Swagger’s whole debut hack and page was exciting even though it’s like not the most thrilling idea I think prospect I think this is a very interesting topic because I think you as a lot of people and I myself I think I’m including this he is got a mid card stink about him he has got he is a reject WWE mid cada I don’t think he is has like when Cody went away or when Cody was released he also had that bit of a WWE mid car distinct but has leveled himself up to the point way now you put him on a paper you like oh yeah he’s a legit main eventer hagar hasn’t really had that moment he is still just he’s got that mid can’t stink about him and so when you now put him into a main event position and I do appreciate that the company are pushing people as even if you are a form of W meerkat same with suburbs Shawn Spears it’s like yeah you were a lower mid Carter but we’re pushing you as an actual deal in this company so it’s a better presentation and I think Shawn Spears the way they presented him does feel like a much bigger deal than he wasn’t WWE so be interesting to see over the next few weeks how they present Hagar and whether or not he can kind of remove that midcard stink that he had attached to him because I mean we’ve sort of coined this term on this show as of late the forever mid card that was the WWE from 2006 to 2011 there was just a class in that five year period that are the forever mid cards that never ascended they would be champion but always treated like the mid cards and and unfortunately Hager is one of those guys but then a lot of those people like you say gone out of WWE and made their names elsewhere Cody drew McIntyre swagger isn’t one of those people unfortunately so what love will see worried that what happens with him elsewhere you’ve already said pack goes to nil they they really played up the wins losses records on this show as soon as the bell rang for a match there’d be like that puts this person up to this amount of wins yeah puts them instead for this kind of tidal shot and even in the main event they were saying well if lax beat the young bucks here even though it’s a six-man tag you’d expect Alec Santana on Ortiz to take their position in the tag-team tournament so we’ll see what happens there as well but also we had some celebrity cameos we hit him days from what from one of my like teenage heroes Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes you know 19 age years I was obsessed with the movies of Kevin Smith and the view ask universe so actually what jenny was a bit of a mark out moment for me to see Kevin Smith there at ringside and he got involved in an angle when and helico and Jack Evans came out Susan was kind of promo and tell him that Morris Day and the time sucks and private party came out so kind of like to quell valent again to pass some beers around instead because they’ll be having a match next week no private attacks private party are facing young ducks next week and Holly Cohen Jack every time in the tournament all right okay so it’s probably just to build something off the back of that yeah Kevin Smith hit Betty’s new film that the Jay and Silent Bob reboot film stars Chris Jericho yeah that was why that was how they sort of tied it all in there but yes overall you know a very solid episode I’d say if we got any super chats – oh we have do you want it when they give any sort of quick wrap-up thoughts of your highlights and your low lights I’m just kidding Jack veeneman says are you making hot ones no I hot ones is a show on YouTube but I’ve never seen it so I don’t know if they have a highlights lowlights I don’t know lanaaaa says hmm aw three out of five for me or three point five out of five for me could be interesting to see how the regular shows work out now and hope they haven’t blown their loads too early hmm I mean if you’re getting it 3.5 out of 5 I hope you don’t thought that’s their highs yes maybe they peaked too soon at three and a half out of five they didn’t have to do much to like that they just had to be consist and I felt like there were a lot of logic holes there that was my issue as well power level immediate says Rijo verses 9 a match was horrible so many watches there were a lot of botches but to their credit and to the crowds credit as well they really were was supporting both women they they did get the crowd back into the match and after some of those watches I thought oh god they’ve lost everyone now but that their work rate was so good that they got people back in I think that’s why I have a higher opinion that match then some others wouldn’t see your point there is that I thought they would did very well when they did watch something they didn’t just repeat the spot they would just work it into the map the story that they were telling into the match it was like Oh Rijo can lift her up for that spot my fun will just work this in neither just laughs it often bill oh okay well let’s carry on and do something else then as opposed to being like oh well let’s just repeat the spot and then we’ll do the other planned stuff that we’ve currently got so I thought they did so well in getting the crowd back into the match because that STF spot which wasn’t a botch just killed the crowd during the outbreak just in Todd says Moxley versus Spears next week can not wait yes be really exciting to see Jon Moxley actually wrestle a match as opposed to just brawl around the entire place indeed so yes that’s all we’ve got time for today we’ll be back later on with a edited full-on review of the show and then we’ll be back after that with a wrestle talk live review a full hour long while we’ll be taking your questions as well but please do give us a subscribe enable
