It’s time for the title show as both the TNT Title and the Tag Team Titles are on the line. That is quite the stacked card for any show and hopefully the execution lives up to the hype. You never can tell for sure with something like this but AEW has a history of being able to pull off a big show. Let’s get to it.

We’re done with Double Or Nothing and that means it’s time to start getting ready for the summer. I’m not sure what that is going to mean as AEW takes its time to get to their next pay per views. We do have Fyter Fest though, and that should give us a goal for the next few weeks. Let’s get to it.

It’s back to the pay per view calendar, which isn’t somewhere AEW goes all that often. It’s a triple main event with the Stadium Stampede, Jon Moxley defending the World Title against Brodie Lee and Cody vs. Lance Archer for the inaugural TNT Title. They’ve done well on pay per view before so let’s get to it.

It’s the go home show for Double or Nothing and that means it is time to hammer home everything that has already been set up. Hopefully that makes for a good show as you never know what you might get out of something like this. Maybe Cody can ram something at six miles an hour this time. Let’s get to it.

We’re coming up on Double Or Nothing and that means things are going to be pushing forward this week. The big story coming out of last week was the return of Santana and Ortiz to put the Inner Circle back to full strength. I’m not sure where things can from here but it should be interesting either way. Let’s get to it.

The SmarK Rant for AEW Dynamite – 05.06.20

LIVE from Daily’s Place in Jacksonville, FL.  The crowd is PACKED at ringside.  By Covid Nightmare-times standards.  Hey, here in Saskatchewan we’re beginning the process of opening up again, so I can only assume Florida also has things under control thanks to sensible social distancing and strong leadership.  Also, it’s not WWE, so it’s fine.

Anyway, the arena is open air, so it immediately feels so much more open and so much less claustrophobic than the stuff from the past few weeks.  What a breath of fresh air, pardon the pun.

Your hosts are Jim Ross, Tony Schiavone & Excalibur.

We’re back live and that means we could be in for something a little more interesting. I’m curious to see if there are going to be any fans in the building this time. It seems that they can put about 25% of the fans inside and that could go a long way. I’m not sure what else to expect but we could be in for a fun one. Let’s get to it.

It’s still tournament time as the taped shows continues. This time around we have the semifinals for the TNT Title tournament and that means we have some big matches to get ready. In addition to that, we have Brodie Lee vs. Marko Stunt, in a match that should last about thirty seconds but I’ll put the over/under at five minutes because AEW has to let everyone shine. Let’s get to it.

We’re still on the road to what was supposed to be Double Or Nothing from Las Vegas but it could be interesting to see what they might have to do instead. I’m not sure how things are going to go around here but I liked last week’s show well enough. That doesn’t always mean something going forward though and now we’ll have to see where this goes from here. Let’s get to it.

The SmarK Rant for AEW Dynamite – 04.15.20

I was gonna take a pass on the show this week because I’m really over this empty arena stuff in general, but then Vince McMahon went and won Dickhead of the Year 2020 in the span of a few hours, so I kind of feel like reviewing the competition just to spite WWE.  Tomorrow I’ll start the new project I had mentioned in the daily thread earlier today:  Going back to 2005 and picking up RAW/Smackdown where I originally left off reviewing 15 years ago!

Also, please do continue sharing these on social media if you enjoy reading them, it really does help me out a lot.  Especially if you have a Twitter account with a million followers.

We’re taped again and this time around we have a major match with the World Title on the line as Jake Hager challenges Jon Moxley. Other than that it’s time to continue the TNT Title tournament as we continue towards what is likely going to be an empty arena Double Or Nothing at some location to be determined. Let’s get to it.

We’re still in wherever the heck we are for the second week of what seems to be a marathon taping session. That’s probably the only way to get through the current situation so this is how things are going to be for a good while. The big story tonight is the start of the TNT Title tournament so let’s get to it.
