All Elite Wrestling: Dynamite: Dynamite 11/23 and Rampage 11/25
November 24, 2022 7:19 AM - Season 4, Episode 8 - Subscribe

Now that AEW managed to have a great pay-per-view without a backstage disaster, it's time to set the table for Winter Is Coming and Ring Of Honor's Final Battle, both in December. (This post is going up post show, so match results below the fold.) REMINDER: Rampage will be on at 4PM EST this Friday

(see Bleacher Report for a fuller review of the episode)

Bryan Danielson convinced Jon Moxley not to tear William Regal's head off in the middle of the ring. Regal only sneered at the crowd and said "Mr. Friedman" would speak to the audience at next week's Dynamite.

AEW All-Atlantic Championship Match: Orange Cassidy (c) def. Jake Hager... only for everyone, including the Best Friends and JAS who accompanied, to get laid out by the returning House of Black.

Eliminator Tournament Final: Ricky Starks def. Ethan Page in an underdog babyface match. He will face MJF at Winter Is Coming.

Best-of-Seven Series for the AEW World Trios Championship: Death Triangle def. The Elite, making the series 2-0 in their favor, with the finale centering on who could sneakily use hammers first

Women's 3-Way Tag Team Match: Britt Baker and Jamie Hayter def. Willow Nightingale & Skye Blue and Tay Melo & Anna Jay-A-S
The substory for this one seems to be that Hayter's the Women's Champion, but Baker can't stop hogging the mic and the spotlight. Also, it was announced that since there's no clear timetable to Thunder Rosa's return, her title reign was retroactively ended after her injury, meaning Toni Storm and Hayter can take the "interim" out of their title reigns!

The Acclaimed return to bask in adoration of the crowd, and announce that Billy Gunn's hands have healed, he can now scissor again

Jade Cargill got into some altercation this past week with Bow Wow, of all people. Also, Red Velvet is back, and Kiera Hogan is apparently fired from the Baddies because she didn't pitch in enough during Cargill's title defense against Nyla Rose.

Ring of Honor World Championship Match: Chris Jericho (c) def. Tomohiro Ishii, in a super Japanese-style match where Ishii slapped Jericho's chest so hard he bled openly. The Ocho's reign continues!

I suppose that this cheat/don’t cheat dynamic we’re seeing with Death Triangle is a way to set the stage for them to lose the Trios titles in a dramatic fashion. Can’t really imagine it would cause Fenix to turn on his brother, although a Penta vs. Fenix civil war would be a good storyline to carry into 2023.

I also noticed how often The Elite teased the Chicago audience with references to CM Punk and the backstage brawl, between Kenny using the GTS, Nick (or Matt?) deliberately screwing up the buckshot lariat, and finally Kenny biting PAC’s arm to evoke Ace Steel biting him.

I will say it again: The best and truest wrestling metaplotline of the 21st century is Jon Moxley vs. his own success. In that light, it makes perfect sense for Regal to betray him, because Regal knows that it is the only way to save Moxley from himself.
