AEW Dynamite – Episode 174 (02.01.2023) (Wrestling Review)



Dayton, Ohio

Feb. 1st, 2023


Singles Match
Jon Moxley vs. Adam Page

 A good brawl match that works well with both these guys. They can brawl and bleed with it feeling unique and just not a brawl to brawl. The ending worked well here as it happened so fast when either guy could have won this. 

3.5 / 5

Tag Team Match
Truth Magnum & Turbo Floyd vs. The Acclaimed (Anthony Bowens & Max Caster) (w/Billy Gunn)


.5 / 5

Singles Match
Brian Cage (w/Prince Nana) vs. Konosuke Takeshita

A good match for Takeshita to win. Cage losing doesn’t mean much as he doesn’t win many important things anyway. Cage works well in a match like this even if his moves seem so over the top that its like everything is a finisher. 

3 / 5

Singles Match
Bryan Danielson vs. Timothy Thatcher

A great match as expected. AEW debut for Thatcher who showed off why Danielson was the perfect choice for him here. Would love to see him back in AEW soon. 

3.5 / 5

AEW TBS Title Match
Jade Cargill (w/Leila Grey) (c) vs. Red Velvet

 So tired of Jade in matches you know she isn’t gonna lose. 

.5 / 5

AEW TNT Title No Holds Barred Match
Darby Allin (c) vs. Samoa Joe

Allin losing the belt back to Joe worked here and they made this feel like a big deal main event match. Darby continues to just be a glutton for punishment her and Joe worked great in a match like this. The belt came off as feeling important too. 

4 / 5
