AEW Dynamite Highlights – Nick Jackson And Fenix Dazzle (11/20/19)

fenix vs nick jackson

An action-packed night was planned for AEW Dynamite this week as Nick Jackson was set to have his first singles match since 2015 as Matt Jackson was injured a week ago. That plus a dream-like match, a special battle royale, and a tag team match to possibly decide the next challengers for the AEW World Tag Team Championships, but more importantly in the honor of Matt Travis. Let’s dig into the highlights:

Nick Jackson & Fenix Kick-Off Dynamite With A Jaw-Dropper

When it comes to their respective tag teams, Nick Jackson and Fenix are the representative daredevils. So when these two were set for singles action, you knew for a fact it was going to be insane. And that it was. Truthfully, attempting to explain the action in this one is almost impossible. Superkicks, topes, huricarranas, the action never stopped. Towards the end of the match, Nick Jackson hit a picture-perfect Canadian Destroyer that sure looked like it was the end of the match but Fenix managed to kick out. Jackson attempted to hit a Tombstone at one point but Fenix managed to survive again. The final blow would be when Fenix hit the Mexican Muscle Buster on Nick to get the win. Following the match, Nick attempted to shake his hand after the bout but was left empty.

Dynamite Dozen Battle Royale Finds Hangman Page & MJF As Winners

I still have no idea what the power of this special ring is, but some of AEW’s best competed in the Dynamite Dozen Battle Royale with the final two advancing to next week to go one-on-one for the ring. This was the MJF show as if you had a favorite, he eliminated them. MJF eliminated Orange Cassidy to the sound of boos and when it looked like Jungle Boy would advance to the finals for next week, MJF ripped him down from behind to secure his spot against Hangman Page next week. Here is a prediction: MJF wins the ring.

Scorpio Sky Confronts Chris Jericho

Guys. Gals. Fans of wrestling. Next week we are getting the Chris Jericho “Thanksgiving Thank You Celebration”. Oh but also Scorpio Sky confronted Y2J after pinning him last week. This is something AEW is getting right, which is Sky becoming a star in front of our eyes. Jericho brought up Baby Yoda so that was the peak of the show. Chris Jericho is the greatest of all-time, per Chris Jericho. SCU did the best at enraging Jericho into the point of giving Scorpio Sky an AEW World Championship match in Chicago NEXT WEEK. The fight was then on after Sky called Jericho “Le Bitch” as the Inner Circle came down to help beat down SCU. Michael Nakazawa and Brandon Cutler tried to come down and help but surprise surprise, they didn’t do too much. The Judas Effect ended Sky… until the Jurassic Express ran to the ring to try and help. A staredown between Jake Hager and Luchasaurus took place before Hager backed away from the fan-favorite.

Private Party Upsets Proud N Powerful Thanks To Nick Jackson

A match that was dominated by Santana and Ortiz ended up with a huge upset, as Nick Jackson ran down to the ring to stop them from using the baseball sock. When this occurred, Isiah Kassidy cleared out both men, getting Santana to the top rope. It was a Gin and Juice to give them the victory, their second upset in Private Party‘s career.

Dynamite of the Night: Jon Moxley vs Darby Allin

Imagine someone making an entrance through a body bag. Because that is exactly what the sadistic Darby Allin did as the bag said “MOX” on it. Before Jon Moxley could even get into the ring, Allin came flying through the ropes as the fight was on between these two psychopaths. The bell didn’t ring until Darby was crawling on the ground but that surely didn’t matter. The bigger Moxley controlled the pace early on in the matchup. So much so that Allin at times looked completely out of it. He was throwing around the smaller Allin and taking his time. As the match got down to the nitty-gritty, Moxley placed Allin back into the body bag that he brought to the ring after a devastating lariat that left him out. Mox brought stomp after stomp before the referee opened it for Darby to get out.

The never say die attitude of Darby had him fighting back, even almost winning on a perfect roll-up. A yoshitonic by Allin almost led to victory but it was kicked out of again. The attempted Coffin Drop was met by a sleeper before Darby almost got enough for the pin. Mox bit Darby as he attempted to throw him off the top rope, leading to an Avalanche Paradigm Shift DDT to get the win for Mox. It seems Darby has a career-making match every time he shows up, but truthfully this may be it. Jon Moxley seems to be in line for a world title opportunity as soon as possible.

Dynamite delivers once again with possibly their best effort from beginning to end, with two killer matches to bookend the show. Next week they are in Chicago, so that should be an insane atmosphere as always.
