who you think won the Wednesday Night War this week: NXT or AEW Dynamite. Luke will be reviewing that over-hyped t-shirt
company’s show in a bit, but first I’m giving you the rundown of NXT for October
the 9th. Things kicks off with a hot opener over the
newly renamed NXT Cruiserweight Championship, it’s still the same belt and still utterly
gross but at least the ropes aren’t purple. Lio Rush was a hungry challenger to Drew Gulak’s
title coming out of the gate with Mach 5 feats of flying. But he gets himself grounded like someone
just flew a drone over Gatwick airport after Gulak shoves him from the top rope sending
him crashing into the conveniently placed ring crew. They closing moments following a tense submission
battle see Rush land a side on frog splash, his impossible springboard cutter and the
Final Hour to pick up the victory and become the new Cruiserweight Champion. Big Willy Reegs comes out to present the title
but Gulak snatches it away before giving it over like an angry present and a respectful
handshake. We’re then reminded that Finn Balor is NXT
and Tegan Nox has working knees. Then Rhea Ripley makes her way down to the
ring for another squash match. And this time she moshes off Aaliyah, who
foolishness decides to rake the back at one point, drawing the ire of Ripley and earning
herself a ride on the big swing. A sort of figure four lock that Rhea uses
to twirl Aaliyah through the air, slam her to the mat and make her tap. Post-match Rhea grabs a mic and tells Baszler
she’s coming for her. I’m glad they’re positioning Ripley like this. Next up we get the Benny Benassi remix of
Breezango’s entrance as the pair try to find Satisfaction in a match against yeast-based
tag team Ever-Rise. Except they don’t because Jaxson Ryker walks
out onto the ramp carrying both lads and then uh, just inserts Wesley Blake and Steve Cutler
into a regular tag match with them… the villainy, it’s unparalleled. The match was built around a Fandango hot
tag which kick started a rumba in the jungle, but the extra man power in the Sons corner
left Breezango in a certain way, fittingly starting with the phonetic letter FOXTROT. Next Cameron Grimes literally squashes Boa
with a leaping double stomp after Killian Dain distracts everyone on the ramp. Grimes grabs his hat and makes himself disappear
like the swamp wizard he is, while Dain decides to squash Boa some more – dumping him on the
announce table and saying this is just the beginning. Will Dain now start to run rampant
through the NXT roster? I kind of hope so. Isaiah Swerve Scott takes on Roderick Strong
for the North American Championship next, and in a big swerve, Scott gets in lots of
offence and looks legit. He kind of got forgotten about in the Breakout
Tournament, despite feeling like the most ready made star in his opening contest – except
Angle Garza and his interchangeable trousers. I loved this match and thought it put over
Swerve amazingly, though not completely as he comes a cropper to an Undisputed Era classic
finish, getting distracted by the lads on the outside an eating an End of Heartache
and tapping to the Stronghold. Cole grabs a mic and says he loves NXT because
the best of the best come here to see if they can measure up to UE, but that is just a dream. Did someone say Dream? Because Velveteen Dream
is on the balcony, like Baz Luhrman’s Romeo and Juliet taken to its logical extreme. And he has a pic of Roddy’s dong, or lack
there of, and this somehow is leading us to a NA Championship rematch in two weeks! To cap it all off Tomasso Ciampa makes his
way to the ring, dragging a crutch and grabbing a chair, the Era clear out and he sits down
and says Goldie, Daddy’s Home. People react to this like Daddy Ciampa went
out to get a pack of cigarettes 20 years ago and go crazy. Great match, great promos, great photo, great
daddy. A fired up Dakota Kai took on Biance Belair
next, in a match that showed off what the Captain of Team Kick can do with, but ended
with Belair picking up the quick victory with a KOD. This felt like the wrong choice after Kai’s
emphatic return to NXT the other week, especially as she took so much of this match, but the
post promo from Belair is setting her up for a match with Rhea Ripley so I’ll forgive
it. We’re told that we’re getting Keith Lee
vs Dominic Dijakovic number 75 next week as the main event and I honestly couldn’t be
happier. Then finally it’s time for the main event
Kushida vs WALTER, and hoo boy what a match this was. It was streak vs streak, and not
in a Roderick Dong kind of way. This was about Kushi using speed to duck and
weave through Walter’s offence, before falling victim to the power game. There were some mad moments like WALTER blocking
a sunset flip powerbomb off the apron by stomping Kushida’s face, WALTER taking the tornado
hoverboard lock transition from the top rope, they even had an amazing submission trade
off sequence in the middle. The size-advantage seemingly proves to much
as Walter hits the glorybomb, but Kushi kicks out, however a rip-chord lariat does the deed. This was an incredible main event and kind
of shocking to think that a televised WWE show would end with a main event between a
Japanese guy and an Austrian billed as top stars. Almost time for AEW but click the ‘i’
above my head to give your rating of this week’s NXT – where you can choose from:
An EST NXT, Undisputed-ly Good, The Fine-est, 2 Out of 5 Live, and *cough* Cameron Grimes’
Hat. This week’s NXT had a blistering opener
and a strong finish, everything in between was definitely good, but we are clearly in
the building phase after last week’s blow-out mini TakeOver. There are feuds to set-up and story still
to uncover, it’s just that middle hour felt like too much teasing and promising and I
get enough of that at home with the missus… *cough* So overall I’m giving this week’s NXT
a low Undisputed-ly Good. Oh my God Laurie! Are you okay?! I’ve got
to help him!.. Right after this review. The YouTube algorithm waits for no man!
Private Party advance in the tag title tournament! Darby Allin will face Chris Jericho next week!
And the Midcard of Evil get themselves a brand new name. I am Luke Owen, and this is my review
the 9th of October 2019 edition of AEW Dynamite. A stacked night of wrestling kicked off with
the tag title tournament match between The Young Bucks and Private Party, the latter
of which were billed from a location you need an invitation to, and their weight was described
in vodka cranberry. I think if I was a wrestler I’d have my weight announced in cups of
tea. And it would be lots of cups of tea. This match was awesome, and not only highlighted
why The Young Bucks are so bloody good, but why they signed Private Party to AEW. Isiah
Cassidy and Marc Quen are both incredible wrestlers, and their tandem moves are often
mind blowing. The story of the match was that the more it went on, the more frustrated the
Bucks became – seen as though they were the #1 seeds in the tournament, and Private Party
were the #8 seed. Private Party refused to die, and it led to a more vicious side of
Bucks. After a series of really good nearfalls, Quen rolled Matt Jackson up off a reversed
Meltzer Driver for the shock win. An amazing showcase for Private Party, and a great story
of them advancing over the experienced team. If this was what we can expect from this tag
tournament going forward, we’re going to have a lot of great wrestling on TV.
AEW Champion Chris Jericho came out with his cronies of Sammy Gueverra, Jake Hager, Santana
and Ortiz, who said that Dynamite was the highest rated premiere on TNT in years and
that was all down to him and his new friends – including Sammy who he called a Spanish
God and shouted at us to look at how sexy he is. He also introduced the former LAX,
Santana & Ortiz, who he said are back alley brutes and he likes them. However when introducing
Jake Hager, he was drowned out by chants of We The People, which was the chant for Hager’s
previous WWE gimmick when he was Jack Swagger. Jericho told everyone to shut up, and said
We The People sucked, calling it “a stupid idea from bad creative”. But remember it’s
not a war. He also ran down Cody ahead of their Full Gear match in November, and introduced
this group as the Inner Circle – a possible reference to the TV Inner Circle, which TNT
used recently for feedback on the first episode of AEW. They also have a new t-shirt, which
proved so popular it crashed Pro Wrestling Tees. I was unconvinced about this group last
week, fearing it would be another Midcard of Evil, but this one promo cemented them
as a real faction, and Jake Hager is a really intimidating presence standing behind Jericho.
WHY WON’T YOU BLINK, MAN?! And Jericho is set to be in action next week
when he defends his AEW Championship against Darby Allin, who beat Jimmy Havoc in a very
entertaining and hard hitting match. There was a nice bit of storytelling in the match,
with Havoc continually bitting Allin’s fingers, but Allin did the same to him as he attempted
the Acid Rainmaker, hitting the Flipping Stunner and Coffin Drop for the win. This put Allin
over very strong, and also established that Havoc could be in the AEW Championship conversation
some day. AEW Women’s Champion Riho teamed with Dr.
Britt Baker to take on Bea Priestley and Emi Sakura in an entertaining tag bout, which
was designed to further push Baker as a top contender but also continue her feud with
Priestley. There was also a nice bit of commentary work when they pointed out that Riho’s only
loss in AEW came from a tag match where she teamed with Baker. Emi Sakura had her moments
to shine, including an impressive spear from outside the ropes to the inside and into the
corner. Sounds weird but trust me it was great. The babyfaces ran wild, and Baker picked up
the win with the Mandible Claw on Sakura. She will face Riho next week for the AEW Women’s
Championship after this win, and her win on AEW Dark – and she brawled with Bea Priestley
after the match – leaving Britt with a nice shiner.
Best Friends got a video package, which Chuck Taylor called the best video he’d ever seen,
and it also got the thumbs up approval from Orange Cassidy who got a massive pop.
Jon Moxley made his official AEW in-ring debut next as he took on Shawn Spears. Sorry, did
I say Jon Moxley? My apologies Justin Roberts, I meant to say JAAAAAAAAAAAAAN Moxley. This
was another hard-hitting match, with Spears giving Moxley a death valley driver into the
barricade which looked like actual death. Spears continued to work over Moxley before
he made a comeback and hit Paradigm Shift for the win.
On top of that, we also had Pac out on commentary who was asking a question that a lot of people
were asking on Twitter when it was announced that Darby Allin and Jimmy Havoc would be
fighting for the #1 contendership next week. Despite Havoc picking up the win at All Out,
and Allin going the distance with Cody and beating Cima last week, Pac has a 2-0 record
in AEW and has only been pinned once in 2 years. So where’s his shot? It’s an interesting
character direction for Pac and his feud with the concept of All Elite Wrestling, furthered
when Kenny Omega came out after the match to confront his Full Gear oppenent Moxley
– carrying a barbed wire bat and the far more deadly a barbed wire mop. I can’t wait for
that to be a weapon in the AEW video game. Omega tossed Moxley the bat, but was blindsided
by Pac with a chair. This is different storylines between different characters crossing over
– making AEW feel like a fleshed out world with various character with various motivations.
If you’ll excuse the pun, I’m all in on that.
And in the main event, Dustin Rhodes teamed with Hangman Page to take on Inner Circle
of Sammy Guevarra and Chris Jericho, which was also awesome. This may not come as a surprise,
but Dustin Rhodes is an excellent pro wrestler, and Hangman Page is absolutely fantastic.
The heels worked over Page for a long time, who did an excellent job of playing the babyface
in peril desperate to get the hot tag to Dustin, and the crowd got hotter and hotter as each
tag attempt was thwarted. Finally Dustin tagged in and ran wild, but interference from Jake
Hager allowed Jericho to hit the Judas Effect for the win.
Inner Circle continued their beatdown after the match, but Cody appeared in the ring to
make the save – before being blindsided by Santana & Ortiz. MJF also ran down, and in
an excellent character moment teased hitting Cody with a chair, but stuck with his best
friend to lay out Inner Circle. But his heelish mannerisms led to him getting a Code Breaker
from Jericho. It was a great babyface moment for the very heel MJF, a very well-defined
three dimensional character. The Young Bucks also ran down to get in on the action, and
Darby Allin attacked Jericho with a skateboard to build their match next week. Jericho ended
the show by calling Darby Allin a bitch, so you know this is super serious.
What did you think of the show? Vote in the poll above my head to let me know where you
can choose from: All Elite, AEW-Some, Middle of the Rhodes, SC2 Out Of 5, and What The
Buck. Last week’s debut was AEW setting out their stall for what you can expect going
forward with Dynamite, and this show was all about building storylines and characters.
And while last week’s show was a solid one, it was not without its issues. However all
of those issues were addressed this week. The production was smoother, the commentary
was clearer in explaining referee decisions, and there was a nice balance of action and
story. This was an excellent episode of pro wrestling. This week’s AEW Dynamite was
a very high AEW-Some. Did Bray Wyatt agree with the criticism of
WWE’s terrible booking of Hell in a Cell? Click the video to find out more, and check

for watching and a special thank you to our Patreon Pledge Hammers, some of which you
can see scrolling their way into my stomach. I’ve been Luke Owen and that was wrestling.

  1. LUKE: Which show did you prefer? As a clarification, this was Moxley's first sanctioned AEW match. Totally knew that when I wrote it. Yep.

    WWE NXT review – 0:31 / AEW Dynamite review – 8:12

  2. How’s it only just dawned on me the clown is the new presenter 😂. WrestleTalk writing fiend-esque stories better than WWE

  3. Wait so when Alexa bliss is a heel that does good things you guys give her shit. But when it's MJF he's a "very well defined three dimensional character" sounds a little biased.

  4. aew has this round won for me. nxt had the best match of the day (WALTER vs KUSHIDA) but aew has the best overall show.

  5. Lowest AEW rating should be "What the Cuck" since the cuckold storylines on WWE are easily the worst things in wrestling… apart from the finish to Hell in a Cell matches obviously.

  6. The title match for NXT was predictable…another superstar returns and gets the title so quick… WWE will recycle ideas and you can see it every show it's old and predictable.

  7. The character work on AEW is so damn GOOD!.. now the freaking Ring GEAR SMH, looks so damn low budget especially Private party. looks like they came straight from their grand mothers sewing machine. glad sammy ditched the damn animal helmet, the lime green team (forgot their name) needs an overhaul too. you can tell the people who came from the indies compared to the ones coming from major companies, they need to change that

  8. I remember Shayna Bazler was pretty scared of that tiny Japanese pirate when she needed 2 of her other MMA friends to help beat her.

  9. we the people was stupid according to jericho

    but after every mma match hagar has had he celebrates using the chant……logic?????

  10. NXT needs to go outside of fullsail univ. they need a bigger crowd which will make a takeover kind of feel otherwise AEW will be the better brand everyday

  11. I hate how people are looking at Jericho calling out creative and overlooking that 10k+ people were chanting and in 5 seconds he completely buried it. That’s impressive.

  12. No! they got Fakidor! Someone save Chopper. I don't think he'll make it out by himself on those short, little legs of his.

  13. When you promote a developmental brand for years and then put it on prime time TV it doesn’t make it any less of a developmental brand. AEW is winning a war their not even fighting. WWE is reacting to what AEW is doing not the other way around.

  14. WWE may have some shitty storylines, but unlike AEW, at least they have storylines. AEW isn't even trying to build storylines. Wrestling is fun to watch but gets boring when there's no real meaning to the matches.

  15. New bloke isnt British enough. WrestleTalk creative, This is bad booking. He made a knockoff fiend mask and he looks baron blade in the career mode of 2k19. LET LUKE SQUASH HIM.

  16. jericho shoots and god damn he scored. and it stopped the we the people chants dead which was so damn needed. i dont want AEW and WWE referencing each other on their shows but when fans are inadvertently burying talent your trying to build, this case hager, youve gotta mention the competition and get the fans moving past it and it worked so damn well.

  17. NXT Kicked off with the cruiserweight championship. That's how they kicked off a show that got beat last week and is losing viewers each week. They lose this week by default

  18. Meanwhile AEW creative rips off the "inner circle" name from The TV show 'Cops". rememberbad boys bad boy what ya gonna do when they come for you" The band inner Circle, I'm sure wants a cut of the profits, oh yeah and Fox Corp probably too

  19. How was we the people a stupid idea from bad creative if it got over with the crowd?? Lol salty Jericho strikes again

  20. The first match of aew dynamite this past week, Young bucks vs private party, was better than any match of wwe in the past decade.

  21. Chris Jericho joking about the We The People gimmick Jack Hager had in WWE lol. Jack Hager was at his most over in the business when he had that gimmick. He will never reach that level again. He is a charisma repellent. So really the joke is on Jericho.

    Now I'm not here to bash AEW. I have been watching and enjoying what I have seen so far. I will however point out facts that wrestling fans seem to forget rather quick when they jump onto a new bandwagon.

  22. I like that private party one it shows they want to push new talent and not just them selves
    Everyone in AEW feels important and they put on good shows

  23. every time I see Cassidy on Nation wide tv I just shake my head…i don't get the ole slow-motion wrestling and hand grenades…Is the overall goal to kill all the excellent wrestling that happens in the show to just become marks for the WWE….just keep him in the back or off screen..Corny is right most of the time….

  24. I would like to see Chavo Guerra and Eddie Guerra daughter emerge in AEW, especially Chavo……simply amazing the man is aging like Benjamin Button😂🤣😂🤣😂

  25. im seeing more short memory span wrestling fans how can you have a new league when the outcome is scripted points my ass

  26. This is the AEW/WWE SU SU SUPER SPEW! Raw & Smackdown same shit different day, AEW goes over mainly because its new and a mainstream alternative to WWE. Meanwhile at WWE/AEW wrestle talk they continue to ask you to support independent wrestling while they continue to ignore Indie promotions in their episodes…..

  27. I bet WWE will pretend not to be bothered that the main event involved talent they didn’t stand behind properly.

  28. Jericho stable is a mishmash of random people lol, i hope this gets them all over though, they need all the push they can get
