AEW Dynamite (May 25th, 2022): Going Home On The Go-Home Show

Well, it's the go-home show for Double Or Nothing, which means the last push before the big PPV event this coming weekend. It's also going to be the last AEW Dynamite musings for a good while. I'll keep watching the show on and off, but I think I'm going to give these things a rest for a couple months and pick it up later down the road.

That said, this was a fine show.

Wardlow killed the Ten Guy in a steel cage after a chairshot from Ten Guy killed special ref MJF, which prompted a regular ref to make the winning pinfall count. This is followed by a pretty solid Hangman/Punk promo segment hosted by Tony Schiavone, who is more than happy to stir up shit between these two, leading to Hangman knocking Punk on his ass... the intrigue in this World title feud is enticing, unlike anything involving Roman these days.

Jon Moxley and Eddie Kingston beat up a bunch of dudes and then they brawl with Jericho's crew. This is followed by a ROH Tag Title match between defending champs FTR and Roppogi Vice ending in an actual, honest-to-God DISQUALIFICATION FINISH on an All Elite Wrestling television program caused by a couple New Japan guys whose names I don't recall beating on both teams... I guess we gotta start building towards that PPV while we're at it.

Thunder Rosa cuts a promo hyping her title defense against Serena Deeb... it's fine. Britt Baker advances to the finals of the Owen tournament by beating Toni Storm... and Samoa Joe defeated Kyle O'Reilly to advance to the finals against Adam Cole or someone... and part of me has this funny feeling that the tournament is going to be won by Cole and Britt because they're doing the lovin' or something. I hope I'm wrong on that count because... eh...

On a whole, a perfectly fine go-home show for Double Or Nothing and a good note to bow out on this journey for now. See you all next Wednesday... or earlier if you like the other shit I post here every so often.
