It’s the first ever Friday night edition of Dynamite and the start of Double or Nothing weekend. Plus, we are back to a full capacity crowd which I forgot until we went live and man... it’s something else
1) Darby Allin (w/ Sting) vs. Cezar Bononi
I can’t think of a better way to kick off this show than this. Darby coming out with Sting to an insane reaction from the first full house in over a year. This deadass gave me goosebumps. Such a special feel. I’ve said it before, but Darby is such a star and exudes so much emotion. This wasn’t anything monumental, match wise. Run of the mill, lesser known big guy vs. fan favorite smaller guy. Bononi throws Darby around a little and targets the ribs, but nothing sticks. Darby wins with the coffin drop. This was a blast, honestly.
Match rating - **1/2
Post match, Darby gets on the mic and calls out Ethan Page & Scorpio Sky. They come out and Sky cuts a promo, but there’s no physicality.. until Bononi and his goons attack from behind so Page & Sky join in. The Dark Order makes the save to a BIG pop. Sting & Darby fist bump Dark Order, thanking them for the help. Good way to gather hype for the tag match on Sunday.
