AEW DYNAMITE: BLOOD & GUTS
May 5, 2021, Jacksonville, FL, Daily’s Place
Commentary: Jim Ross, Tony Schiavone & Excalibur
Kenny Omega & Michael Nakazawa vs. Jon Moxley & Eddie Kingston
Don Callis initially comes out with Nakazawa solo to state that Omega was unable to attend, but assures everyone Nakazawa will take on both men. As Mox and Eddie enter, Kenny attacks both men from behind and the bell eventually rings. It’s very much a tornado tag match to start everything off with JR makes note of. All four men brawl on the outside.
Tide turns when Nakazawa gets a major low blow on Eddie behind referee Paul Turner’s back. He gets choked with a lanyard. Eddie later finds the added adrenaline when Kenny tries to chop him. Kenny enziguris Eddie and it therein cuts off the ring. Eddie hits a falling clothesline and tags in Mox for the hot tag against Nak. Everything unfolds when Kenny bails on his partner. It allows Mox and Eddie to hit a lariat German double team for the win.
WINNERS: Jon Moxley & Eddie Kingston
Post-match, The Young Bucks come out on stage and it leads to The Good Brothers to attack from behind. A Magic Killer gets executed as The Bucks superkick both faces. Kenny comes out with cameraman Cutler and Kenny nails the OWA on Eddie for a visual three count.
QT Marshall (with The Factory) vs. Cody Rhodes (with Arn Anderson)
Cody doesn’t waste any time as he lays into QT. Cody takes off his weight belt, but Bryce Remsburg pulls it away. QT has one of his own and uses it across Cody’s back. The match gets further dirty as Cody rakes the eyes of QT and Marshall takes advantage of his aggression with a leaping suplex from up top. He follows that with a deadlift suplex. Arn tries to coach Cody as he recovers on the outside. QT pie faces Arn and Arn gives him a shot before grinding the head of QT into the post. We go to break!
Back from break, both men collide with some cross bodies. High boot from QT drops Cody. He gets his trunks pulled down and we get a blurry QT ass. Cody comes leaping off top with a standing moonsault and gets a near fall. QT avoids a Disaster Kick and soon hits Cody with a Cross Rhodes for a near fall. QT signals for a Diamond Cutter, but Cody avoids. Buckle Bomb by QT. Both men keep flipping for tombstone attempts and Cody nails it. Cody doesn’t hook the legs and QT kicks out.
Cody hits a Cross Rhodes, but QT manages to get a shoulder up. “QT sucks” chants by the crowd. Cody helps QT up, but locks him in the figure four. Cody is bleeding from the eye and QT taps.
WINNER: Cody Rhodes
Post-match, Anthony Agogo comes in to give Cody a liver shot. He drapes the Union Jack flag over Cody.
We see Scorpio Sky and Ethan Page with Alex Marvez. He says Sting is nothing but a mosquito. “Showtime’s over. I’m the franchise now, bitch!” Ethan says he and Darby have a storied history, but he wants to talk about his medical history. His facepaint is covering up a dent Page put in his forehead. In comes Darby. He takes on both men atop of Daily’s Place, but the numbers game takes over and the duo down the TNT Champion. They send him down half a flight of concrete steps.
Britt Baker (with Rebel) vs. Julia Hart
Britt starts with a sharp kick to the mid-section of Julia (no relation to the Calgary family). Slingblade by Baker. She puts on the glove and nails an Air Raid crash. She pulls Julia up and Lock Jaw locked in. Tap out.
WINNER: Britt Baker
Taz gives a very biased “Technique By Taz” segment featuring Christian Cage.
Four-Way Tag Match For #1 Contendership Of AEW World Tag Titles
Varsity Blonds vs. Jurassic Express vs. SCU vs. The Acclaimed
It’s Kaz and JB starting it off. Athletic pins and counters are exchanged. Caster is in but everything breaks down in Jacksonville. We go to commercial.
Back from it, it’s Daniels and Caster in the ring. Bowens gets a near fall on the Fallen Angel. Daniels catches Bowens with a STO and Luchasaurus blind tags himself in as he takes out The Acclaimed. He chokeslams both Varsity Blonds down. Chokeslam to Kaz on the outside on top of the Blonds. Jurassic Express double team Acclaimed but Daniels makes the save. Pillman hits his patented springboard clothesline and gets a near fall on JB. JB turns him inside out. CD thwarts JB’s progress. Frankie tags himsel in and gets a near fall on Pillman. Pillman rolls Kaz up for a near fall of his own.
Kaz catches Pillman and CD leaps off with a BME Piledriver combo for the 1-2-3.
After that, a video package is aired for Mox vs. Yuji Nagata next week. He lays it all on the line against Nagata: “Once that bell rings, I got no respect for anyone.”
Schiavone is standing cage-side and introduces a white-suited Kenny Omega. He asks the crowd how many people here are ready for Blood & Guts? He gets “coked-out” about it before playing it down (“That makes one of us.”) “He’s been a busy man as of late collecting ga-old all over the world.” He asks that Tony Schiavone gives the announcement: it’s going to be PAC vs. Orange Cassidy with the winner to face Kenny at Double or Nothing. He says PAC is a man that has beaten him before and he understands that everyone wants to see that match again. He wants Tony to announce that instead as the match, but out comes Orange Cassidy. He leans on Tony’s shoulder. “PAC or who?” Kenny playfully asks. He laughs. “Freshly squeezed” chants. He understands what Orange means for this company. Hands in pockets. Kids at Halloween dressed up. Same with kids at sock hops. Someone like him would never be championship material. In fact, the only thing Championship material about him is something he’s ripped off of him. He takes Orange’s shades. He’s the guy that made shades famous. Legit Ray Bans. He takes Orange’s shades and puts them on Nakazawa. Orange stands there. Kenny says Nak looks better in them and he would look like a better champion too. Kenny blows him off and Orange stands there with hands in pockets.
Next up, Schiavone introduces Miro. He warned the locker room “You got a title, you got a problem.” He’s got a signed contract and in seven days he’s going to face Darby Allin next week for the TNT Title. Tony begins to read that Darby forfeits the title if he doesn’t, but Miro says “no forfeit.” He wants Darby.
