AEW Dynamite (Oct. 18th, 2022): A Quick Word

Only saw the last hour-ish of Dynamite, but I got the important bits. There was a really great exchange between MJF and William Regal, there was a pretty good match between Chris Jericho and Dalton Castle that saw Mr. Wizard retain his ROH title - this Dalton fellow seems a bit out there, but he's certainly a unique cat and I certainly appreciated the video package telling me what this guy was all about. I hope to see more of him in the future.

And then we have the main event match between AEW World Champion Jon Moxley and Hangman Adam Page that ended abruptly when Mox hit Page with a lariat and Page somehow landed on his head, prompting the ref and doctors to check on him and call the match off. Page was stretchered out and diagnosed with a concussion. A bit of good news is that he was discharged from the trauma center that he was taken to, but still under protocol. All I can say is "Get well, Hangman."

With time to spare, Mox calls out MJF, who teases cashing in his chip - basically a Money In The Bank type deal - but decides he's going to actually earn his keep and cashes in for a title match at the upcoming Full Gear PPV. Nice to see that they're going along with the people cheering MJF by having him do this babyface thing of "earning his keep." It's going to make it difficult to get people to hate him now, but you knew this was going to happen sooner or later, so you may as well just go with it.

Okay, so we've actually got a main event World title bout for the PPV to look forward to... and all it took was an impromptu segment after a guy got concussed to do it. At the very least, they're trying to fix their issues, but it's a process.

Show was alright... somewhat tainted by the Hangman spot. Hope he pulls through.
