Andrade El Idolo has arrived in AEW. He appeared live during a special Friday Night Dynamite last night...standing alongside Vickie Guerrero.
QT Marshall & Anthony Ogogo beat Cody Rhodes & Lee Johnson. QT pinned Cody after Ogogo delivered a right hand to Cody’s jaw.
Dustin Rhodes beat Nick Comoroto in a Bullrope Match - hitting a bulldog from the second rope and then tying up Comoroto’s legs to get the pin.
The Young Bucks opened the show with a win over Pac & Penta El Zero Miedo. Pac was rolled up for the pin after interference by Brandon Cutler. The Bucks’ plans for a post-match beatdown were interrupted by Eddie Kingston.
Jungle Boy & Christian Cage beat Private Party. After the match, Matt Hardy dropped Christian with a Twist Of Fate on the entrance ramp.
Red Velvet served up Just Desserts to beat The Bunny.
Miro will defend the TNT Championship on Dynamite next Friday night...against Dark Order’s Evil Uno.
Jake Hager challenged Wardlow to an MMA Cage Fight on Dynamite in two weeks.
Kenny Omega will defend the AEW Championship against Jungle Boy on a special Saturday Night Dynamite on June 26th.
The location of SummerSlam will be revealed on Saturday. It’ll be announced during the Belmont Stakes pre-race show on NBC. We already know the show is set to be held on Saturday, August 21st.
Bayley will get another shot at Bianca Belair’s SmackDown Women’s Title at Hell In A Cell. Belair challenged Bayley on last night’s SmackDown...and Bayley accepted.
We got not one - but TWO - SmackDown Tag Title matches last night!
The show opened with Rey & Dominik Mysterio beating The Usos to retain the gold. Dominik reversed Jimmy Uso’s top rope splash into a roll-up. Jimmy actually kicked out, but the ref was out of position and made the 3-count.
That led to The Usos getting another shot at the tag belts in the main event. That match ended with Roman Reigns running in to cause a disqualification. Reigns battered Rey & Dominik with the ring steps after the match.
That was too much for Jimmy. He walked out on Roman...but Jey was conflicted as the show ended.
Apollo Crews pinned Kevin Owens after a Death Valley Driver on the ring apron to retain the Intercontinental Title. Owens was weakened before the match by a backstage attack by Commander Azeez.
Sami Zayn showed up after the match to beat up on Owens a little more.
King Corbin pinned Shinsuke Nakamura. It appeared Corbin had taken back his stolen crown too. But his escape was cut off by Rick Boogs...and Nakamura made off with the crown yet again.
Also last night, Carmella beat Liv Morgan.
HOT SAUCE Tracy Williams is recovering...after he was hit by a car. He tweeted a picture Friday, showing himself in a neck brace. He said he’ll be okay...but didn’t elaborate on his prognosis.
Williams is one-half of the Ring Of Honor Tag Team Champions alongside Rhett Titus. They have a title defense against Dragon Lee and Kenny King coming up on next weekend’s ROH TV. Presumably, that match already happened during the last ROH TV taping.
The NWA’s When Our Shadows Fall pay per view is coming up on Sunday.
Nick Aldis defends the Worlds Heavyweight Championship against Trevor Murdoch.
Kamille challenges Serena Deeb for the NWA Women’s World Championship.
