AEW Dynamite Notes: Cody vs. Wardlow Steel Cage Match, Tag Title Match Set For Next Week

Cody vs. Wardlow set for 2/19, AEW World Tag Title match, Moxley vs. PAC, Jurassic Express vs. The Inner Circle set for next week. Also, WWE's Baron Corbin shared his thoughts about AEW's opening match.

All Elite Wrestling: Dynamite’s January 15th show was live from the Watsco Center in Coral Gables, Florida and the show kicked off with a four-way tag match between Kenny Omega & Adam Hangman Page, Best Friends (Chuck Taylor & Trent), The Young Bucks and Santana and Ortiz. Omega and Page emerged victorious from the match after they connected with their “Buckshot Lariat/V-Trigger” combination on Taylor to secure the victory. On the Jericho cruise next week, Kenny Omega and Hangman Page are challenging S.C.U. (Frankie Kazarian & Scorpio Sky) for the AEW World Tag Team Championships.

Cody accepted all of MJF’s stipulations in order to get a match with MJF at AEW’s ‘Revolution’ pay-per-view on February 29th in Chicago. Cody agreed to not touch MJF until their pay-per-view match, to take ten lashings from MJF on a live episode of Dynamite and to face Wardlow inside a Steel Cage which will happen on the February 19th episode of Dynamite in Cody’s home-area of Atlanta, Georgia.

The Jericho cruise will also feature a singles match between Joey Janela and Rey Fenix. Janela cut a promo on tonight’s episode of Dynamite about Penelope Ford and Kip Sabian. The Jurassic Express (Marko Stunt, Luchasaurus & Jungle Boy) are taking on Santana, Ortiz and AEW World Champion Chris Jericho on the cruise as well.

WWE’s Baron Corbin indirectly commented on AEW’s opening tag match and had the following to say about the bout:

Another Dark Order promo aired and the group is eyeing Brandon Cutler, Hangman Adam Page, and Michael Nakazawa as potential recruits. They did hint at possibly recruiting Kenny Omega by way of Nakazawa.

Jon Moxley earned his spot in the AEW World Championship #1 contender’s match on next week’s show by defeating Sammy Guevara in a singles match. After Mox’s victory, The Inner Circle attacked him and Jericho stabbed Moxley in the eye with one of the spikes from his jacket. PAC vs. Darby Allin was the other qualifying match and PAC bested Darby. As PAC was celebrating his victory, cameras cut to the backstage area where Moxley was being tended to by the medical staff and Moxley exited the ambulance and came back out in front of crowd’s view to let PAC know that he will be ready to fight next week as the winner will challenge Chris Jericho for the AEW World Championship.

Diamond Dallas Page made his return to in-ring competition on the show and his team consisting of QT Marshall and Dustin Rhodes were defeated by MJF, The Butcher and The Blade. MJF wore a shirt to the ring that read, “I Banged Dallas’ Daughter.”
