AEW Dynamite (April 21st, 2021): A Good Problem To Have

To tell you the truth, I've got very little to say about this episode. I thought it was a fun show that passed by quickly, even with the big ol' slog that was the QT Marshall vs. Billy Club Of The Gunn Club Club. To put it simply, there were a couple quality promo bits from the two groups partaking in that Blood & Guts match in a couple weeks and next week's show is supposed to lay down the rules that will either confirm or denounce everyone's suspicions that this is the AEW take on Wargames, a fun main event that saw Darby Allin retain the TNT title over Jungle Jack Boy Perry., and there was an Elite segment interrupted by Jon Moxley and Eddie Kingston ramming a truck into the Elite trailer, with the Elite pulling a disappearing act that seemed baffling due to the awkward editing, but could be explained away with a simple "they got away quickly" or a less simple "misdirection" angle.

As far as the women's match is concerned? Good stuff, with Shida retaining the Women's title over Tay Conti in a fierce match. Conti is something of a hot thing at the moment and chatter online would argue that this was her time to get a big win and possibly a run with the title. And while I wouldn't have minded that since Conti is pretty good for someone of her skill level and is popular enough to warrant a title run, the fact of the matter is that this wasn't her time, regardless of her popularity. As it is, the person most likely to unseat Shida would be Britt Baker and I feel like having Conti win the title here, only to lose it to Britt a couple weeks later would be doing everyone a disservice.

Like I said, not a whole lot to say about this one.
