10 Ups & 4 Downs From AEW Dynamite (Jan 22)

All aboard the Jericho cruise for another banger Dynamite.


Another week, another gimmicked episode of AEW Dynamite, with All Elite's Wednesday night flagship going down on a literal ship as part of Chris Jericho's Rock 'N' Wrestling Rager At Sea.

Thus concludes a fun four-week run that brought a homecoming, an anniversary special, Bash at the Beach, and now this: the most unique-looking wrestling weekly we'll likely see all year. Nice aesthetics mean little without meaty content, however, though Dynamite largely delivered in that department as well, with the show light on major angles but heavy on actual wrestling.

A stacked lineup saw Kenny Omega and Hangman Page challenge for SoCal Uncensored's AEW Tag Team Titles and PAC face Jon Moxley for the right to be named Chris Jericho's number one contender. Speaking of 'Le Champion,' his Inner Circle was in action against Jurassic Express, MJF was out to flatten Joey Janela's moment before facing Cody, while Britt Baker met newcomer Priscilla Kelly one-on-one.

The best news? There wasn't a single peep from the Dark Order or Nightmare Collective all night. You love to see it.

Let's run through another strong episode of Dynamite, warts and all...
