AEW Dynamite continues. The tag team main event between Hangman Page and a partner of his choosing against Chris Jericho and Sammy Guevara is the only match left tonight! But first, we get the rules run-down for Blood and Guts and unsurprisingly, it’s the oldschool rules – including victory only attained through submission or surrender.
Then, we hear from Jon Moxley who had a sit-down with JR. Mox admits he’s not feeling good but this whole game between him and the Inner Circle has been about the AEW World Title. So… who’s won the game? Notes the challenge he made to anyone to face off with him. Mox calls attention to Jake Hager, dares him to come after him after that powerbomb last week. JR says that it almost seems inevitable that the two of them will face off down the road. Moxley admits that Hager probably hit him harder than anyone ever has which is saying a lot. In Newark, it’s Blood and Guts. Mox says pro wrestling is blood and guts, AEW is blood and guts, he is blood and guts. So he’ll be there and if they’re smart, that scares them.
Main event time! The Judas singalong is as loud as it’s ever been! And indeed, after seemingly putting himself into the mat, Dustin Rhodes is out now to team with Hangman. Page is arguing, it actually seems like he intended to go it alone!
