AEW Dynamite returns with a new name in a new city this week at the Watsco Center in Miami, FL. This week will be named the Bash at the Beach, adding a little unique Miami flair to an already huge week of wrestling. Now you’re talking to me baby! That I like! Keep it coming!
We will also get Cody’s response to MJF’s stipulations, which is sure to bring some memorable content. And after Jon Moxley’s response to the Inner Circle last week, there is sure to be some fallout from that bomb he dropped. It is all boiling up to be a hot show in the heat of Florida. And I always tell the truth. Even when I lie.
After all, this is Miami pal, where you can’t even tell the players without a program. Luckily, we have that and much more in store for this preview for AEW Bash at the Beach.
Preview: AEW Dynamite (1/15/20)
Sammy Guevara vs. Jon Moxley
After Moxley’s response last week, it is clear that he shares Tony Montana’s opinion of capitalism. He’s no sheep like these other people. He couldn’t deal with people telling him all the time what to do, what to think, what to feel. He looked in the mirror and said “Who put this thing together? Me, that’s who! Who do I trust? Me!” Then he of course came to the conclusion of not joining by uttering “Well, I don’t know how this is gonna work, Jericho. I mean, uh, you’re not exactly up my alley-style and persona wise. Heaven knows I’m no box of candy.”
Because in this country, you gotta make the money first (being unhappy in the WWE). Then when you get the money, you get the power (to leave the WWE). Then when you get the power (and use it to join AEW), then you get the title. And that is what Moxley’s mind will be on this week. Looking to make an example of Sammy Guevara for sure, he will be looking to make a statement with this match louder than the words of last week. But don’t count Sammy out in this one, as he has some powerful friends who may make their presence felt here. Every dog has his day.
The Young Bucks vs. Hangman & Omega vs. Santana and Ortiz vs. Best Friends
With the winning team getting a title match against SCU, there will clearly be a lot on the line in this huge four-man tag match. Win this match, and the world is yours. Pair that alongside the tensions existing between Kenny Omega and Hangman Adam Paige, and this match is sure to explode in a dramatic and metaphorical gunfight.
Adam is finally sick of being the “least successful member of the Elite” as those online have said about him. He’s got ears, ya know. He hears things. There is also the longstanding tension between Santana & Ortiz and the Young Bucks as well, and the Best Friends have proven themselves as one of the best teams in this division. Where this one will go is uncertain, but the fact we’re in for a show is a guarantee, pal.
PAC vs. Darby Allin
PAC is very angry. You know why? He wants his rubber match. And most people don’t have the guts to be what you wanna be. He thinks the world needs people like him. A bastard so you can point your fingers and say, “That’s the bad guy.”
So… what’s that make Darby Allin? Good? Probably not good. He just knows how to hide it, how to lie and work the crowd. PAC doesn’t have that problem. PAC always tells the truth. Even when he has to lie to tell it. So it seems to be a good night to be the bad guy, and PAC will surely teach that to Darby Allin. This is sure to be a clash between two of the most reckless individuals in the company.
And come on. This isn’t the last time, you’re gonna see a bad guy like PAC again, let me tell you. But he will be looking to make a statement against Allin: Make way for the bad guy. There’s a bad guy comin’ through! Better get outta his way!
Kris Statlander and Hikaru Shida vs. Mel and Awesome Kong of The Nightmare Collective (w/ Brandi Rhodes)
Every day above ground is a good day. Except for when you have to face Awesome Kong and Mel f.k.a Melanie Cruise. Okay, here’s the story. She comes from the crowd. It’s a work, we all know that. Supposedly got no wrestling education but that’s okay. She knows the street, and she’s making all the right connections. With the right woman, Brandi Rhodes, there’s no stopping her. She could go right to the top.
As for Shida and Statlander, they will be looking to band together to try to stop the powers that be. They may not have a lot of history as a team, but with all things considered, I think they may have to consider some type of… temporary working relationship if they want to survive this episode of AEW Dynamite
MJF and The Butcher and The Blade (w/ Bunny) vs. QT Marshall, Dustin Rhodes, and DDP
On the road to Revolution, this one is certainly an interesting speed bump along the way there. And not the kind that Mr. Montana was in the business of or that Crockett and Tubbs were looking to eliminate.
MJF re-enlists the help of his hired guns The Butcher and The Blade, who will be accompanied by Bunny. But they have a mountain to climb bigger than the one Tony’s nose climbed in Scarface.
Getting into the ring for the first time since 2011, DDP joins QT Marshall and Dustin Rhodes to form one hell of an interesting three-man group. They have all had their taste of the money and power. DDP may be better known for his yoga these days, but this is about a man’s pride. All a man has in this world is his balls and his word. And DDP won’t break them for no one.
Speaking of which, we come to…
Will Cody Accept MJF’s Stipulations?
Let’s try this again shall we?
Cody will answer his list of stipulations after last week’s AEW Dynamite where he pulled a Daniel Bryan style bait and switch. We all expect Cody to do whatever it takes to get his hands-on Maxwell Jacob Friedman. 10 lashes, Wardlow in a cage match, and keeping his hands off MJF will all be worth it in his eyes.
In the eyes of MJF, he sees a much different story unfolding. To him, he has never screwed anybody over in life that didn’t have it coming to them. You got that? All you have in this world are your balls and your word and he doesn’t break both of them for no one. Do you understand? When it comes to Cody, he never liked him, he never trusted him. For all he knows he would have had MJF set up and had his career killed. But that’s history.
The Bash at the Beach could turn to a real shootout if that is the case. Let’s just hope that everybody can handle the bullets long enough to make it to Revolution. This show has it all, to say the least. After all, if Miami hasn’t got it, no one’s thought of it yet.
