1) Adam Cole, The Young Bucks, & Bobby Fish vs. Chuck Taylor, Trent, Orange Cassidy, & Rocky Romero
I love love love love trios and atomicos matches so hell yeah on this happening. Lots of different stories and issues foiled into this one little match. Rocky & Fish hooking up was cool, but the best part early was Orange hitting his flurry on Cole, the place coming unglued and The Elite/Superkliq nailing him with a gang attack during the middle of it. Good ass shit. This begins a small heat segment with Orange being the face in peril. Naturally.. good shit. Trent gets the hot tag and we get some tandem moves from him & Chuck that we haven’t seen in a while like the soul food-half & half combo. Not to mention, some RPG Vice shit from Trent & Rocky. Shit breaks down from here. Some good near falls between Fish & Trent. The Bucks go nuts and Orange gets his shit in before Trent pins Fish with the CRUNCHIE. This was a blast.
Match rating - ***1/4
We return from commercial and Dan Lambert is in the ring. He’s with Ethan Page and Scorpio Sky per usual. He lays into Tony Khan saying he’s began playing politics and doing everything he promised initially that he wouldn’t. He goes after Cody next and Cody comes out. He snatches the mic from Lambert so Lambert snatches it back. They do this over and over before Cody gets pissed and a brawl breaks out. Dustin Rhodes and Sammy Guevara make the save for Cody when the numbers get to him. Sammy shares an awkward stare at Cody & Dustin after the heels leave the ring. Sammy and Cody face for the TNT Title this coming Wednesday on Dynamite.
2) Tay Conti (w/ Anna Jay) vs. Penelope Ford (w/ The Bunny) - Submission Match
This was ok. It didn’t get much time to develop into a lot, but what they did was solid. Tay looked awesome as always as of late. From her selling to her offense, everything from her ruled. She wins after a couple minutes and yeah. That’s all for this one.
Match rating - **1/4
The card for next week’s Dynamite is announced and is as follows:
Adam Cole vs. Orange Cassidy
Malakai Black vs. Griff Garrison
Christmas Party w/ Britt Baker & Tony Schiavone
FTR/MJF vs. Darby/Sting/Punk
PLUS Rampage next week will feature HOOK facing Bear Bronson and Cody Rhodes challenging Sammy Guevara for the TNT Title.
3) Eddie Kingston, Penta El Zero Miedo, Rey Fenix, Santana, & Ortiz vs. Daniel Garcia, 2.0, & The Acclaimed
Eh. This was kind of a cluster fuck. As I honestly pretty much expected. There was no need for the Lucha Bros or The Acclaimed to be here, if you wanted them involved just throw it on Dark. For TV, this would’ve been much more effective as a trios match with King & Lucha Bros vs. Dan & 2.0 instead we get unnecessary filler and the only truly great bits are from Dan & King although Santana & Ortiz and 2.0 did do some fun stuff also. Dan Garcia gets the flash roll up on King to win.
Match rating - **1/2
Heels beat down the faces after the match. Jungle Boy, Christian Cage, & Luchasaurus make the awesome save. JB & Lucha stare down the Lucha Bros teasing the tag title match that we are expecting to get soon. This closes the show.
After the show went off air, I went live on YouTube with Mike, Courtland, and Zach to give our immediate thoughts PLUS Mike opens a pro wrestling crate package live to kick off the stream! Check it out below:
Thanks for reading and watching. See y’all next week <3
