It’s Thursday (well now Friday) and you know what that means… ratings for Wednesday night AEW Dynamite are out. This week AEW Dynamite was back in Minnesota for the Quake by the Lake show. Let’s see how this week’s show did.
AEW Dynamite Quake By The Lake
This week’s edition of AEW Dynamite featured an AEW World Title match between Jon Moxley and Chris Jericho. In addition, the TBS title was on the line along with a Coffin Match and a Tornado Tag Team Match.
With that being said, this week’s edition of AEW Dynamite was live in Minneapolis, MN and the crowd was electric. The show was jam-packed with non-stop action. It was a very clean show too. This week’s show was viewed by 972,000 people and did a .33 in the 18-49 demo.

Both numbers were up from the previous week. Though not as high as the mark hit two weeks ago around 97k. AEW Dynamite was ranked number one cable in the demo on cable according to Showbuzzdaily.com. The show has not been number one on cable in seven of the past eight weeks. AEW Dynamite was beaten out by the Mets and Yankees a few weeks back.
The show opened with an excellent match as Dary Allin and Brody King fought in a Coffin Match. This was a bloody affair for both parties. A very fun match to open the show. The storytelling over the last weeks between Darby and Brody has been great. The House of Black interfered which led to Sting coming out of the Coffin and clearing out the faction. As the match wound down, Darby found a chain and choked out Brody King. This led to Brody falling right into the casket and the lid closing. A Very cool visual.
The Lucha Bros took on Rush and Andradae in a Tornado Tag Team match. This was an excellent match to keep the action going. All four men were flying around in a great Lucha Libre match prior to the Trios Tournament beginning. LaFaccionIngobernable picked up the victory over Fenix and Penta as they continue their hot streak heading into action next week against the Young Bucks and a mystery partner.
There were promos by Jon Moxley and Chris Jericho hyping the match later on in the night. Imagine if there was a month to build this match on PPV. Considering it has been two years, this build has been great too. Especially the promo work. This feud continues to be excellent between the Jericho Appreciation Society and Blackpool Combat Club.
Some interesting segments were next as Ricky Starks and Luchasaurus won in squash matches. After the Luchasaurus, Jungle Boy ran back to try to get to Christian Cage. The build has been great and they keep delaying the physical confrontation between Jungle Boy and Christian. As far as Ricky Starks goes the singles babyface run is off to flying colours in the ring. This guy has stardom written on it. His feud with The Factory and Hobbs continues.

Jade Cargill took on Madison Rayne for the TBS Title. This was a good match. Jade continues her dominant role as champ. After the match, Athena, who was dressed up as a baddie, attacked Jade as they are setting up the match for the title. Speaking of setting up matches, with Kris Statlander hurt again, Toni Storm is the new number one contender as she and Thunder Rosa are on another collision course for the AEW Women’s Title.
The main event saw Chirs Jericho take on Jon Moxley for the AEW World Title. This was an excellent match to close the show. Jericho came out in full Lionheart gear and the music was awesome. Jericho and Moxley are two good wrestlers. And they put together a great match with a two-week build. It was another bloody affair. AEW did enough to make the fans think Jericho would win the title. Moxley kicked out of the Judas Effect. He stayed through a four-minute commercial break in the Walls of Jericho. There was interference, but Moxley overcame everything to make Jericho tap out.
Post-match, the two factions fought as the locker room cleared. Jerichow was about to take out Moxley when CM Punk returned to make the save and set up Moxley vs Punk at ALL Out to unify the title.
