PAC finally made his full return to AEW Dynamite last night, appearing live and in the flesh for the first time since March.
Penta El Zero M wrestled his brother and tag team partner, Rey Fenix, in the main event. Eddie Kingston was on commentary and constantly referred to Penta as his "best friend," putting Fenix down in the process. When Penta won, Eddie hit the ring, booted Fenix out, and told the terrifying skeleton ninja that he didn't need Rey's "dead weight" anymore.
Cue: PAC's music and The Bastard's arrival.
A short promo saw PAC tell Kingston that he had made a very big mistake, though officials swarmed before the duo could brawl. It was then announced that PAC will face Family member The Blade on next week's show.
AEW foreshadowed this with PAC's vignette last week. Opening with Eddie's "where's your little British friend?" from the Family's formation and closing on PAC saying "lads, I see everything," this was always the likeliest (and smartest) way to bring the Englishman back, as Kingston has effectively stolen two-thirds of Death Triangle away from PAC.
The sheer volume of character dynamics in play means this should be one of AEW's most interesting storylines to follow over the coming weeks and months.
