    AEW Dynamite AEW Dynamite On TNT - 27/05/2020



    Mike Tyson, fresh off his appearance at AEW’s Double or Nothing, will make his AEW Dynamite debut as well. Britt Baker will address the AEW fanbase concerning her recent injuries to her knee. The Inner Circle has announced that they will hold a Pep Rally on tonights epidsode regarding their loss in the Stadium Stampede match. A Battle Royal has been announced to determine the #1 Contender for the AEW TNT Championship, held by Cody. What else will happen?

    The Revival just made their debut for AEW as FTR. It was kinda of not that great imo, they could've worked on a better debut look too but I guess times are tough these days. Also poor those jobbers who got a spotlight with The Bucks only to be unveiled its just to make FTR look good

    Sucks about the injury to the Private Party guy. Match ended suddenly and Janela felt like an afterthought sadly. That match felt contrived for the most part though so I was waiting for the show to move on.

    Welp. That Mike Tyson shit was pretty trash. But if they do some big spectacle cinematic bullshit, itll be watchable. Felt like one of Tyson's posse got worked or something.

    Rest of the show was solid if uneventful. Dug Jungle Boy winning since the story is really obvious there with MJF/Wardlow/Cody. Kinda would love to see a serious Wardlow/MJF vs. Luchasaurus/Jungle Boy. Hoping more is done with Cassidy/Inner Circle too.

    I really dug Inner Circle stuff till they did the dumb Tyson shit.

    There was really no important matches this week.

    I can't wrap my head around this Sabian/Havoc tag team. They don't seem like they connect on any level. And they're now in line for a tag team title match. I don't get it at all.

    But the segments this week certainly delivered. The Revival's debut was honestly quite uninspired. Like, if you were watching that and didn't know about The Revival, or even if you had only seen main roster Revival, you probably wouldn't care at all. They didn't come across nearly as the big deal you would hope for.

    Taz managing Brian Cage is off to a good start. I loved Taz telling Mox "beat him if you can, survive if he lets you" and I also thought Mox saying "this is gonna be fun" after he just watched Cage dismantle that jobber was really nice.

    The show ending with a locker room clearing brawl between Tyson's entourage and The Inner Circle was certainly something. I was enjoying the pep rally and it was fun to see Hager show some comedic sense during it as well.

    Only thing that's severely bugging me is that, didn't Best Friends win a number 1 contendership match on the DON Buy-In? :S

    Revival Debut was really missing a real crowd, bc that would've been hype af. Show was alright, but the ending was really weird.

    That confused the shit out of me too. Winner next week (between champs and sabian/havoc) faces best friends at fyter fest or whatever it's called for the belt. That info was not well communicated at all though.

    That is a bit of a recurring issue with AEW, not being very clear with when things that are set to happen, will actually happen, and things of that nature.

    Cool to see the Revival, though them not being heels was strange.

    Zero interest in Cage, but Taz's promo made me feel there's good legs in him as a manager. Would totally be down for him getting more guys with him.

    Despite a good showing at the PPV, the womens division is back to business as usual. Another bad match.

    Cody vs Jungle Boy could be fine.

    Why are they doing a Jericho vs Tyson bit? What's the payoff there? I am shocked Sammy didn't get KO'd.

    Jericho vs. Tyson is obviously good exposure for AEW. It's already being talked about by ESPN and other major sports outlets. Tyson is still one of the most popular sports figures on the planet, having him (as well as UFC fighters Henry Cejudo and Demian Maia) is just a big league move. You search Tyson, who has been in the news a lot lately, and first thing you see are articles about him in AEW. Jericho has the sports entertainment know-how to make this work, The Elite and The Inner Circle need to get into some new stuff while they're biding time before Blood & Guts, so I don't really see the downside.

    Well they aren't quite hitting WWE length of booking inconsistency but yeah why have the tag match at the PPV buy in only to have another one the next episode of Dynamite.

    Also the whole Tyson thing is doing two things. One it is boosting Tyson in the public limelight again ahead of a rumoured boxing return, and two is brings newer eyes to AEW who will be there to see Tyson and Tyson alone. Smart move for both in reality.

    Cody vs Junlge Boy next week should be good too.

    It looked like Luther confused the shit out of everyone by starting the Battle Royal before the last entrance.

    This guy has been awful since day one.

    Eh. To me it made sense within the context of no one giving a fuck if Cassidy got in the ring for the Battle Royal to start. Luther has a bad look though so I dont really care to see him again

    Considering I find little to no charm in PCO, that's a worrying comparison

    The Tyson stuff was just weird though. Like I get why this will be huge for AEW from a publicity standpoint, but it just looks like a failure on Tyson’s end if he’s trying to promote a comeback. Shows up clearly high as fuck, Lex Lugers his t-shirt, has some weirdo in eye paint who looks like he got worked into a shoot, participates in a meh recreation of the Austin moment.

    Count me in on not being into the Tyson stuff. Not only am I unexcited for Tyson, the segment didn't really work for me. The commentators clearly didn't know who anyone was except Tyson (Excalibur knew Cejudo, at least) and it was so cold. This will likely get publicity outside which is fine. It doesn't work for me. Well, I'll probably change my tune for Cejudo tbh. I like him and he's young enough to potentially make a succesful switch, depending on what he wants to do post UFC.

    The Battle Royal was alright. I dug Cody's promo before hand and the stuff with MJF and Wardlow was nicely done. Jungle Boy vs Cody should be good. I would've prefer Orange Cassidy win though.

    Up and down episdoe in total. Unoffensive in their worst points, intriging in their best.

    I would love to see if AEW could pull off successfully booking Cejudo since he's basically Marko Stunt sized.
