The Varsity Blondes and Julia Hart joined Tony Schiavone on the stage for a promo but were interrupted when the arena darkened. When the lights came back up, Malakai Black appeared and sprayed black mist in Hart’s eyes. The young woman screamed in agony as her male counterparts called for help.
Moments later, chants of “Johnny Hungee” spilled from the stands as The Dark Order’s John Silver battled Bryan Danielson in the main event.
The No. 1 contender to the AEW world title absorbed a spirited attack by the hometown hero Silver before slowing the pace and wearing down his opponent. A middle-rope dropkick by Danielson was met with a midair powerbomb before Silver applied a kneebar.
Bryan escaped a German suplex attempt but ate another just moments later. He recovered, delivered a Gotch-style piledriver out of the playbook of Minoru Suzuki and finished him with a modified Full Nelson for the referee stoppage.
Danielson cut a promo about kicking The Dark Order’s heads in before attempting to do the same to Silver. Hangman Page made the save, taking Danielson down before the heel escaped. “Next week, I’m gonna kick the cowboy s*** out of you!” Page exclaimed to close out the show.
Danielson defeated Silver
This was a good, physical match between the great Danielson and the vastly underrated Silver.
Every time Johnny Hungee gets a shot at proving himself in singles competition, he excels, thanks to a raw athleticism from a guy the size of a human bowling ball. The powerhouse hung in there with the best wrestler on the planet Wednesday night, delivering a match in which the outcome was never really in question but still had fans holding out hope for the upset win.
It didn’t come, though, as the studious Bryan borrowed from Suzuki to put his opponent away.
It would have been nice to see more of an interaction between the top contender and Page to really hammer home the hatred that exists between them ahead of next week’s blockbuster main event but there’s been plenty of talking and teased physicality so it’s no big loss to wait until next week to really let Danielson and Hangman beat the hell out of each other.
This was a great way to conclude another strong episode of Dynamite ahead of what has the potential to be an all-timer in seven days.
