Adam Cole followed up by whipping Dax into the steel ring steps, using them to his advantage. Dax Harwood muscled Adam Cole over with two German suplexes. Cole snuck in a suplex of his own, but then Harwood, possibly with a cracked rib, nailed Cole with a third German suplex! Cole and Harwood slugged it out on the top turnbuckle.

Jeff moved as Darby landed hard on the edge of the ring. Jeff climbed to the top turnbuckle and went for the swanton bomb but Darby moved! Jeff crashed and burned on the ring steps! Darby hit the Coffin Drop but Jeff Hardy countered, rolling up Darby for the pin! Jeff Hardy advances!

My Score: 3.5 out of 5

Final Verdict: 4/5

Head to toe this was a solid episode of Dynamite. Every match delivered, from the opener to the quick squash match/promo with Danhausen, to the two closing Owen Hart Tournament matches, this was a well-performing show in the ring and the promos only added to the fun and the strength of the show. The main event delivered EXACTLY what you’d expect from these two high flying madmen. Meanwhile, Toni Storm and Jamie Hayter showed just why many people, myself included, are invested in the future of the AEW women’s division – give it a year or two and Hayter will be fighting for the Championship, believe me (if not we riot!!). Another winning episode for AEW!
