Greetings, All Elite Wrestling fans. Boy, was Revolution extremely amazing and extremely disappointing all at the same time, but onwards we go! This week, we already have some possible tension in the Dark Order’s finally established friendship with Hangman on BTE. We also had two AEW Darks — I highly recommend Big Swole’s promo from Saturday’s episode of Dark. As for last night’s Dark, the Lee Johnson match is a must, as well as the Fuego Del Sol vs QT match as part of their feud on Sammy’s vlog. Peruse through everything else and enjoy Dynamite tonight!
Being the Elite
- In one of the more shoot segments on BTE, it seems everyone is now into skateboarding over at Daily’s place. Matt Jackson was able to get a whole bunch of boards for everyone.
- Brandon Cutler is feeling the effects of the Viagra the Good Brothers slipped him last week, and is trying to be as sneaky as possible about it. The Good Brothers promise to help him out.
- Nyla, Vickie, and RYZIN all try to come up with new ideas of how to get more money. They come up with the idea of ‘church merch’ but still need to figure out exactly what that merch should be. Nyla gets an idea, whispers it, and they all get excited and head out.
- The Bucks are getting checked up after diving onto tables last week at Dynamite. The Bucks accuse the Good Brothers of goading them into doing the table spot and now they have to get checked out. They apologize and say they were just helping out.
- The Dark Order get together after the PPV, Hangman comes in and the group cheers. Alex Reynolds says he used Hangman’s credit card to buy him a ton of whiskey, everyone else says they bought him stuff too with his own card because they knew he would win the match anyway, so no big deal right?
- Hangman reveals he kept some of Hardy’s money to buy a lawnmower but told Hardy to give the rest away and is now on the hook for the Dark Order’s charges. He walks off. The rest of the Dark Order realize they don’t even have money now for Anna’s surgery. They then talk about how irreplaceable Anna is in the group, how absolutely NO ONE can replace her. Miko Itoh then walks in and the Dark Order goes wild.
- Private Party goes to check on Matt Hardy in his hotel room, make sure he’s OK. Private Party tries to reassure him it’s all fine. Matt simply eats grapes and closes the door in their face. Private Party worry he may be back to his short lived “Cold Blooded” gimmick from ten years ago.
