AEW Dynamite is owned by All Elite Wrestling, Shahid Khan, and TNT
We’re back with even more Dynamite action to bring a brief glimmer of joy to our otherwise monotonous existence! How many Netflix shows did YOU watch this week? Trick question! If you can remember, you haven’t seen enough. Anyway! Last week got things off to a great start following the All Out PPV, and hopefully they’ll continue to build on that momentum to give us another fantastic excuse to yell at the TV in joy and terror… other than when watching the news of course. Let’s find out!!
Jurrassic Express Vs. FTR
Jurassic Express is accompanied to the ring by Marko Stunt while FTR is accompanied by Tully Blanchard
Before the match even begins, The Young Bucks come out and Superkick Ref Posey; just for the sake of being jerks! He didn’t even DO anything, and The Bucks just come out here to not play by your daddy’s rules! They head to the pack to throw a stack of bills at Tony Khan as they will SURELY be fined for this, and they pass by FTR who find this whole thing quite amusing. I’m not sure I’m on the same page with them, but I guess this is just to keep us reminded that they’re going bad so that people aren’t confused when they REALLY do something terrible! Now before we were so RUDELY interrupted, how is the match itself? It’s actually pretty good! The story of this match is ALL about Jungle Boy who continues to impress whenever he’s in the ring; so much so that I can only assume he’ll be getting a Singles push soon, but we’ll cross that bridge when we get there. His initial flurry of offense against FTR was very impressive to see, but soon enough FTR manages to ground him and they generate heat for quite a while with Jungle Boy trying desperately to get to the corner. Jungle Boy stays resourceful however as Wheeler tries to do a drop kick on Jungle Boy who’s up against the ropes, but he dodges at the last second and Wheeler’s legs get caught on the top rope; flipping him over in a VERY hilarious looking fashion! Luchasaurus gets the hot tag and cleans house with the efficiency of an actual dinosaur, but it’s clear that this as well is part of the bigger story they are trying to tell. Luchasaurus is always great whenever he enters the ring, but he’s pretty easily overwhelmed when the other team starts working together. Compare this with when Jungle Boy gets the tag back in, and while he may not have the immediate offensive power that Luchasaurus has, he has the resilience to fend off both members of FTR at the same time; to the point that Wheeler and Harwood have to keep tagging in and out just to keep up with the kid! The turning point comes when Luchasaurus goes for something on the outside… (I guess it was supposed to be a really high spear?) and misses Wheeler by a mile; crashing into the crowd and effectively out of the match. Jungle Boy manages to fight on valiantly and has Dax in a solid pin, but Cash flips them so that Jungle Boy is the one getting pinned, and with Cash applying additional pressure on the pin they just barely manage to get the three count. Perhaps in a one on one match Luchasaurus would be unstoppable against either one of FTR, but Jungle Boy clearly has the better skills for this particular challenge, and they only way the champs were able to win here is by cheating in a way that in all honesty the ref REALLY should have seen. Despite it being Jungle Boy’s night to lose, he really came into his own here and it was a strong story being told. A GREAT way to open the showContinue reading “Super Wrestling: AEW Dynamite (09-16-2020)”
