AEW Dynamite – Episode 222 (01.03.2024) (Wrestling Review)

AEW International Title Match
Orange Cassidy (c) vs. Dante Martin

This was a good match. Stayed typical to what Orange has given us the last year or so. Dante is good in ring and a good high flyer so if anything this was just more eyes on him. 

3.5 / 5

Singles Match
Queen Aminata vs. Mariah May

May seems like a star and has the in ring skills but as a first match this was just okay. Aminata got more time here than expect and they tried to make her a big deal as well. 

3 / 5

Singles Match
Konosuke Takeshita vs. Darby Allin

God this was brutal. Darby wrestles like he wants every move to be his last and Takeashita came off like a monster here. 

4 / 5

AEW Continental Title Eliminator Four Way Match
Trent Beretta vs. Brian Cage vs. Bryan Keith vs. El Hijo del Vikingo (w/Alex Abrahantes)

This was a fun but typical 4 way match. Awesome to see Bryan Keith here and Vikingo is always fun. Just a bit confusing on the end here. 

3 / 5

Singles Match
Swerve Strickland (w/Prince Nana) vs. Daniel Garcia

This was fine. Never felt like a main event or big deal. Garcia is still a somewhat big and over name so Strickland couldn’t squash him quick but this just never connected really. 

2.5 / 5
