The 100th episode of AEW Dynamite and the go-home show/final Dynamite before All Out live on PPV this Sunday.
1) FTR (Dax Harwood & Cash Wheeler) vs. Proud n Powerful (Santana & Ortiz)
Now THIS. This is what this pairing was capable of all along. The Charlotte match which I was there for live really fell flat for me. Probably because of burn out and the placement on the card. This being first helped it, but the work was indeed superior to that of the Fight for the Fallen match. Maybe the injury Cash suffered added to the stakes of this, I’m not sure, all I’m sure of is this ruled and highlighted both teams’ strengths. Santana & Ortiz looked like crazy motherfuckers. FTR were FTR. Yeah. Some great nearfalls down the stretch and Santana & Ortiz get the win. GIVE THEM A TAG TITLE SHOT NOW GOD DAMMIT.
Match rating - ***3/4
Backstage, Daniel Garcia and 2.0 say they are going to do everything in their power to ruin the Punk/Darby match and keep it from happening at All Out.
