The MJF/Adam Cole partnership is my favorite "can they coexist?" since Danhausen/Hook. Max goes and "arranges" a special match for Cole to fight Filthy Tom Lawlor? It's still Pride Month, and so the Lesbians must love it.

BREAKING NEWS: Anthony Bowens is gay?!? Wokeness has taken over AEW! /sarcasm

It's a shame, because Harley's flow wasn't that bad. And now we've got Johnny... Television?... making a return to AEW after a brief match many moons ago.

I had forgotten Douki was in the same "Just 5 Guys" stable with Sanada, which explains why he wants a piece of Jungle Boy prior to Forbidden Door. He's fighting like he has no idea this isn't the PPV, and then Perry steals Sanada's submission move to win. I know I've said this before, but heel turn incoming?

On further reflection, it would make perfect sense if Powerhouse Hobbs stayed on Collision, while Johnny Television (...yuck, someone has to fix that name) hopefully becomes QT Marshall's "client" on Dynamite, because Johnny's wannabe-A-lister look and style is a much better fit with QTV's parody of a gossip-show/wonky PR firm. This may end up involving his real-life wife Taya Valkyrie also, assuming the gimmick can withstand having two top-heavy blondes as heelish stable members.
