Final Thoughts

Tonight’s episode will follow up the various feuds and storylines from Saturday’s All Out pay-per-view and begin the march toward AEW Full Gear in November. Overall, All Out was an underwhelming affair. Here are my quick and dirty thoughts on the show:

Big Swole and Britt Baker’s “tooth and nail” match was a very weird way to start the show and set a weird tone (I’m apparently the only person alive who enjoyed this match), watching Matt Hardy nearly die and seeing no one but Aubrey Edwards try and intervene tainted everything that followed, Omega & Page vs. FTR was not the instant classic that I had predicted, but still a highlight, Moxley vs. MJF was good but suffered from being at the end of a 5-hour show. The best part of the show was definitely Scorpio Sky tweeting a video of his cutest fan.

The only truly memorable moment from the show was Matt Hardy’s injury and the way AEW handled it. I’m not going to dive into it too much, as it’s already been thoroughly covered on this site and every wrestling platform I can think of. What I will say is that I am starting to feel bamboozled. I am starting to question the promise of AEW, a company that was sold to me as a worker-friendly company that cared about things like the health and safety of its wrestlers, inclusion, and representation. It does not feel like those promises are being fulfilled at the moment.

But tonight’s Dynamite is a great chance to get back on track! We’ll hear from Matt Hardy and, hopefully, get a better idea of what happened and why. I’m excited to see Sonny Kiss & Joey Janela take on Chris Jericho & Jake Hager, and to have Nyla Rose back in action against the debuting Tay Conti. It’ll also be good to see The (severely underutilized) Lucha Bros. battling Jurassic Express. It’s a good card and should be a lot of fun.
