AEW Recap & Analysis 9/16/20 - WWE Wrestling News World

Here we go! The Jurassic Express are in the ring already as they get ready for their match with FTR, but it's not the champs that show up...it's the YOUNG BUCKS! They invite the referee to a SUPERKICK PARTY! That's a finin'. Matt takes a wad of bills and throws it at Tony Khan who's sitting in the gorilla position. They walk past FTR who just smirks at them. Another referee comes in to replace Rick Knox. 

Jungle Boy and Dax Harwood begin but the teams quickly tag their partners until all four wrestlers are in the ring. As they go back to their corners the match becomes a back and forth affair, with FTR using their tag team expertise to confound the young Jungle Boy until he avoids the charge from Cash Wheeler. Luchasaurus comes in off the hot tag and cleans house with a series of kicks and clotheslines. Jungle Boy and Cash exchange roll up pinfalls, with Jungle Jack Perry almost getting the win off a top rope cross body into a school boy. Cash breaks up the pin and takes on Luchasaurus outside. The big dinosaur misses a dive towards Dax. Back in the ring a sunset flip attempt by Jungle Boy on Dax gets reversed by Tully Blanchard. Cash holds Jungle Boy's feet for the three count. [***] A great tag team match with the heels relying on their grit and chicanery to pull off the win by cheating against a very good team. 

Tony says that something in the back happened and we go to Alex Marvez. Matt Hardy is on the ground writhing in pain. Private Party is with him and Chris Jericho shows up alongside Jake Hager to chastise Hardy before their match. 

We're joined by Kenny Omega at the commentary booth as SCU's Frankie Kazarian getting ready to face Hangman Adam Page. Originally it was meant to be a tag team match but Omega says he can't confirm if he wanted to do it. Kaz and Page lock up and go into the corner. Great series of mat wrestling by the competitors.

Page goes outside the ropes and Kaz slides out of there. Clothesline by Page and then Kaz punches him until Page kicks him off and then...BUCKSHOT LARIAT! 1...2...3 [****] Great match as these two veterans exchanged back and forth moves. Page proved just how great he was as a singles wrestler. 

After the match Omega walks out and Page is wondering what happened to his friend...but that's ok, because he gets a beer tossed to him. Nothing like a cold one to smooth some loneliness. 

MJF makes his way to the ring along with Wardlow. He's facing Shawn Dean who he makes tap in seconds. [*] SQUASH CITY

Wardlow throws Dean out of the ring and gives MJF the mic. He says that because Jon Moxley cheated that he should be referred as the Undefeated, Undisputed, Uncrowned Champion of All Elite Wrestling. He makes Justin Roberts announce him as such. Afterwards he says that in order to grow in AEW one he needs a stable.

Speaking of stables, here's Eddie Kingston with Butcher, Blade & the Lucha Brothers. He talks about how he never lost the battle royal and deserves a title shot. He says that they aren't a stable, a faction they are a family of violence. He sends Butcher and Blade to attack some scrubs. Lucha Brothers with a sweet double kick. Kingston calling the action as Griff Garrison gets the Full Death stomp by Fenix. Kingston has them throw the green haired guy out of the ring. He tells Blade to get his house in order. What does that mean?

Kassidy with the flying headbutt on Hager back in the ring for a one count. Private Party use their double suplex ability to bring down Hager. Once Jericho comes in he takes advantage of Quen's youthful mistakes and locks him down. Kassidy comes in off the hot tag and attacks Jericho with a sunset flip for two.

Afterwards Diamante attacks Rosa but Shida breaks it up. She picks up the NWA title and hands it to Rosa. However, Shida did admire that belt a bit too long...

We see Miro lifting weights while Kip Sabian talks about the upcoming bachelor party. 

The Murderhawk Monster comes in and chokeslams a scrub while Jake Roberts grabs a mic. He calls out Taz to the ring, and he obliges. Taz says that his team is willing to team with Archer for next week's six man tag match against Moxley, upon the agreement that when Archer wins the title he will give Brian Cage the first shot.
