As has become tradition with AEW taped shows, spoilers for the upcoming episode of the show have leaked, and here they are.
These come via Reddit user SpaceForce1, who, as you’ll know if you’ve been following along with previous weeks, has been bang on the money with these.
So, here’s what this coming Wednesday’s show looks like:
MJF and Jericho vs. Top Flight
Match got more airtime than expected and went quite long. MJF picks up the win for the Inner Circle. He and Jericho cut a promo in the ring after the match that had to be reshot.
Schiavone out to interview Sting. Of course he leads with “It’s STIIIIIIING!!!” Schiavone wants to know what Sting’s motivation is in AEW. Sting talks about his glory days and coming up in the business with Dusty Rhodes. He does an impression of Dusty talking about “color” (blood). He says he came to AEW because he saw Dusty’s offspring leading the charge and he felt like he had to be a part of it. Sting is about to talk about Darby Allin, but Team Taz comes out to interrupt the interview. Taz calls Schiavone a jabroni and blames him for all the hype around Sting’s arrival because of “it’s STIIIIING” (which he mocks with a goofy impression). Starks says he doesn’t care how Sting feels about Darby Allin or Cody Rhodes, but he’s getting tired of Sting sticking his nose in their business. Taz urges the team to charge the ring, but as soon as they do, the lights go out. When they come back up, Sting was ready for them and has backup. Taz says he’s “taking the high road” and calls off his team.
Dark Order vs. Jurassic Express
Jurassic Express wins with the tandem toss powerbomb. After the match, Tully and FTR appear on the tron and follow up on the “stupid dinosaur” trash talk from last week. Building toward a match or feud between the two, it seems.
Butcher vs. PAC
PAC out early with lots of kicks while Bunny screams like a banshee. Butcher takes over with power and pushes PAC around a bit. PAC hits more kicks and a top rope dropkick. Butcher eventually overpowers him and hits a powerbomb for a two count. Butcher in control, but conflict outside the ring between the two groups distracts him and stalls him long enough for PAC to take advantage and hit the Black Arrow for the win. After the match, Archer and PAC face off in the ring and it looks heated, but they don’t fight and Archer walks away.
Kip and Penelope’s Announcement
Kip talks about the wedding and gestures at the tron for the reveal of the wedding date. Best Friends’ music hits and their entrance video is on the tron. Kip and Miro act pissed at first, but it’s a troll. They laugh and que up another video from earlier in the night that shows Chuck and Orange Cassidy standing at the back of an ambulance while Trent gets loaded in on a stretcher. OC and Chuck hop in the back and the ambulance leaves. Back to Kip who says it’s unfortunate that Best Friends won’t be able to make it tonight. He tees up the announcement one more time, and this time the tron shows their wedding announcement. Kip and Penelope will be having a beach themed wedding on February 3rd at Beach Break. Miro couldn’t be more excited to be the best man.
Dustin Rhodes vs. Evil Uno
Rhodes beating the piss out of Uno early, yelling “you want some” as he barrages Uno with punches. Uno eventually gets control out of a rope run and hits a swanton for a two count. Rhodes kicks out of a DDT and they spill outside. Once they come back in, Rhodes has control and hits his signature drop down punch and powerslam. Finish comes when Uno goes for a splash in the corner and misses, allowing Rhodes to capitalize and finish him. After the match, Uno propositions Rhodes again. Rhodes kicks him and Dark Order charges the ring. Uno tries to back them off, but the brawl doesn’t stop until Rhodes gets help from the back and Dark Order retreats.
Shida wins a squash. Abadon out after. More teasing for their title match.
The Acclaimed vs. Young Bucks
Acclaimed out first with Castor rapping. Nick grabs a mic and battle raps him. That was a lie. This was a Bucks match. There were super kicks. There were parties. There were super kick parties. Couple nice Doomsday Device riffs from the Acclaimed. Bucks retain to close the show.
Kenny Omega loses the AEW title to Brodie Lee
Kenny joins the Bucks in the ring and they offer a spot in The Elite to Brodie Lee Jr. (Brodie’s 8 year old son). Dark Order comes out and starts a brawl that leads to Kenny and Brodie Jr. having a championship match. Brodie Jr. jumps on Kenny’s back, taps him out with a rear naked choke, and is announced by Justin Roberts as the new AEW World Champion. Fun stuff that I’m guessing was a Christmas present for Brodie’s kid. Could have been shot for some kind of fever dream segment for BTE or Dark Order’s youtube stuff, but was probably just a fun thing for the kid.
