It was another strong performance this week as AEW Dynamite again. After a dip two weeks ago for being on an off night and with a lot of competition, AEW’s viewership number rose. This week’s show was down from the previous week. However, in the year-to-year comparison, AEW is on par or doing better than it did last year.
There was competition on TV with elections heating up as well as the World Series and NBA. AEW still had a good showing numbers-wise. Both the viewership and demo were down from the previous week. The show was number three on cable according to Showbuzzdaily.com.
The show kicked off with a grudge rematch between Darby Allin and Jay Lethal. This was a solid match. Both guys have great chemistry together. Lethal had attacked Darby a few weeks back to set up the match. There was a surprise in store for Darby as Lethal and company were bringing someone from his past that knew he weakness. Lethal got the victory after Cole Karter dressed up as Sting hit Darby. After the match, the beatdown continued as Sting’s music hit. Come to find out, Jeff Jarrett snuck up on Darby to hit him with a Guitar. Jarrett then cut a promo on AEW and the locker room. He declared war on AEW and said Darby’s weakness was Sting himself.
Jon Moxley cut a promo on Lee Moriarity and the Firm ahead of their match. It was a good match. Simple and easy. Moriarity looked good in the loss to Moxley. Moxley again showing why he is one of the best in the business and such a great champion. The main event of Full Gear is Moxley vs. MJF for the title. After the match, Ethan Page attacked Moxley to show the Firm’s dominance.
Prior to the match, we got another Elite promo. It was cryptic and it appears they are returning sooner than later. Following the match, the Acclaimed celebrated Billy Gunn’s birthday. This was a solid segment. Funny and entertaining. Gunn Club came out to attack the champs with W. Morrissey. FTR made the save as seeds are being planted for Acclaimed vs FTR for the titles.

Chris Jericho defended the ROH World Title against a mystery opponent. That opponent was Colt Cabana. This was a good match, with a scary spot on the ropes that was a botch. The outcome was never in doubt, but the continuous feud between Blackpool Combat Club and Jericho Appreciation is dragging on. What was the point of Blood and Guts.
Following that was the All Atlantic Title match between Orange Cassidy, Fenix, and Luchasaurus. This was a good match. Fenix and Cassidy have great chemistry. Luchasaurus dominated most of the match, before Jack Perry showed up to take him out of the match. Cassidy retained and Pac decided to beatdown the champion. NJPW’s Shibata showed up and that match is set for Rampage.
It was announced Toni Storm will face Jamie Hayter at the PPV for the title. The feud between Saraya and Britt Baker escalated. Not to mention the nonsense with the TBS title. Again the show was alright for an AEW Dynamite but you cant be great every week.
Main event saw Samoa Joe and Brian Cage fight for the ROH Television title. This was a good match. Good to see these guys on TV again. Cage looked good in another loss for a major title. Joe retained and after Gates of Agnony came down to beat up Joe before Wardlow made the save. After the match, Hobbs came out to attack Wardlow again as they set up for a TNT Title program.
That was the show.
