AEW Dynamite – Episode 143 “Blood And Guts” (06.29.2022) (Wrestling Review)

AEW

Dynamite 

Detroit, Michigan

June 29th, 2022

 

Singles Match
Orange Cassidy (w/Chuck Taylor & Trent Beretta) vs. Ethan Page (w/Dan Lambert)

A very mediocre match coming off Oranges phenomenal match at Forbidden Door. Page continues to just not look good and lost here. I know Page has the talent but he’s just constantly booked without any hope for him and as a character in AEW we’ve seen nothing other than generic heel. 

2 / 5

Singles Match
Serpentico vs. Luchasaurus (w/Christian Cage)

Squash with a now heel Luchasaurus. 

.5 / 5

Six Man Tag Team Match
Danhausen & FTR (Cash Wheeler & Dax Harwood) vs. Max Caster & The Gunn Club (Austin Gunn & Colten Gunn) (w/Anthony Bowens & Billy Gunn)

FTR continue to be the best tag in the world possibly and never can give a bad match. Comedy aspects here worked because of Danhausen. A fun match that had a good pace and didn’t overstay its welcome. Also makes Gunn Club vs The Acclaimed a feud to watch. 

3 / 5

AEW TBS Title Match
Jade Cargill (w/Kiera Hogan & Stokely Hathaway) (c) vs. Leila Grey

Squash. Jade doesn’t face people often for long so her reign doesn’t look as dominate as they’d hope for. 

.5 / 5

Blood And Guts Match
Jericho Appreciation Society (Angelo Parker, Chris Jericho, Daniel Garcia, Jake Hager, Matt Menard & Sammy Guevara) vs. The Blackpool Combat Club (Claudio Castagnoli, Jon Moxley & Wheeler Yuta), Eddie Kingston, Ortiz & Santana (w/William Regal)

The blood and guts match is always fun. This was almost 50 minutes of the crowd being red hot into it too which deserves massive credit. It had everything you wanted with fun spots, blood, and weapons. Made sense for Jerichos team to lose and this could lead to a Eddie / Claudio feud with Eddie feeling ripped off that he didn’t get to make Jericho tap. Some minor issues with the match though that are easily overlooked at this epic of a match being so much fun to watch. 

4.25 / 5
