AEW Dynasty 2024 (Wrestling Review)



St. Louis, Missouri 

April 21st, 2024


Singles Match
Matt Sydal (w/Mike Sydal) vs. Trent Beretta

This was just a fine match, something I’d expect on Rampage. Trent is on a heel run and Sydel pretty much just loses anytime he’s on AEW. 

2.5 / 5

Tag Team Match
Katsuyori Shibata & Orange Cassidy vs. Shane Taylor Promotions (Lee Moriarty & Shane Taylor)

Another TV match really. This felt like it was only there for Orange and Trent to see each other on the ramp and give Shibata another PPV match. 

2 / 5

AEW World Trios Title / ROH World Six Man Tag Team Title Match
Billy Gunn & The Acclaimed (Anthony Bowens & Max Caster) (c) vs. Bullet Club Gold (Austin Gunn, Colten Gunn & Jay White) (c)

A bit overly long but this was fine. It combines the two six man tag belts and The Acclaimed are super dead with the crowd so it gives them time to go away having lost. 

2.5 / 5

AEW Continental Title Match
Kazuchika Okada (c) vs. PAC

A great opening match here. Two guys just beating each other down and PAC was the perfect guy to face Okada for his first defense. PAC can lose and still come off looking great and he’s always over the fans. Lets just hope he doesn’t get hurt again soon. 

4.25 / 5

Six Man Tag Team Match
Adam Copeland, Eddie Kingston & Mark Briscoe vs. House Of Black (Brody King, Buddy Matthews & Malakai Black)

This was a fun match with Black winning being the smart choice. I see him finally getting his singles run with the TNT belt as they seem to be teasing Copeland vs Black. 

3.5 / 5

AEW TBS Title House Rules Match
Julia Hart (c) vs. Willow Nightingale

A rather short match but Willow finally get hers title here. Julia was a good champ and really shows how far along shes come since going AEW and I’m interested to see what she does next. 

3 / 5

AEW International Title Match
Roderick Strong (c) vs. Kyle O’Reilly

This was a fine match but not interesting at all. Very technical and good in that aspect but felt like a no stakes boring match that the crowd kind of soured on. 

2.5 / 5

FTW Title FTW Rules Match
Hook (c) vs. Chris Jericho

Jericho beating Hook for his first loss and taking the belt is an awful choice. 2024 Jericho isn’t good and the crowd is openly against him. 

1 / 5

AEW Women’s World Title Match
Toni Storm (w/Luther & Mariah May) (c) vs. Thunder Rosa

This was a good match and both womens best match in a while. Rosa is over and needs to be a top star but clearly May is the only one with a shot at the belt so in the mean time everyone loses to Storm until then. 

3.5 / 5

Singles Match
Bryan Danielson vs. Will Ospreay

A match that will be talked about forever. Two guys, both legends in the ring, one on his way out and hitting his peak, and both move effortlessly. Danielson seemingly got hurt and Ospreay post match looked worried. Not much to say here other than just watch this. 

5 / 5

AEW World Tag Team Title Tournament Final Ladder Match (vacant)
The Young Bucks (Matthew Jackson & Nicholas Jackson) vs. FTR (Cash Wheeler & Dax Harwood)

This was a fun ladder match but no where near the best AEW has had. No reason to believe here that FTR was winning given that The Bucks are back as a big deal here. Jack Perry running in worked well though and they made this match pretty violent. 

3.5 / 5

AEW World Title Match
Samoa Joe (c) vs. Swerve Strickland (w/Prince Nana)

A hard hitting match but nothing too over the top. Just a solid match overall where the important part was that Swerve finally got his title win. 

3.5 / 5
