AEW’s newest show All Access debuted after AEW Dynamite last night. The backstage-centric show aims to shed a light on the real lives of some of AEW’s top performers. Let’s take a look at what we learned from AEW All Access episode 1.
AEW All Access Episode 1 Recap
Britt Baker vs. Thunder Rosa
- Baker, Saraya, Hayter and Storm discuss their objection to Strom being the “interim” champion due to Thunder Rosa’s injury. They question how Rosa can travel state to state to make appearances and do seminars but can’t show up to AEW.
- Baker states that regardless of injury she was happy to work every week to represent the division.
- Baker is working through a hurt back and has a match scheduled with Skye Blue and Madison Rayne
- The Young Bucks discuss their return after some time off and mentions are made to the Trios Championship being vacated. Brawl Out isn’t mentioned by name which sticks out on a show where Baker and friends have just openly talked shit about Thunder Rosa while the Bucks’ issue is talked around
- Following Brawl Out they were unsure of how the crowd would react to them
- During their absence from the ring post-All Out Matt Jackson considered retirement
Tay Melo & Sammy Guevara
- Bryan Danielson vs Sammy Guevara’s first match was so good that Tony Khan wanted to re-do it as a two out of three falls match. We see Tony Schiavone advising Guevara how to direct his promo to set up the match
- Melo discusses how her attempt to represent Brazil in Judo led to the WWE recruiting her
- Tony Khan had big plans for Melo as a babyface but once her and Guevars were paired up on screen the crowd turned on both
- Tay had to adjust to working heel
Adam Cole Return
- Baker and the Young Bucks speak about Cole’s head injury and how scary those can be as a pro wrestler
- Cole suffered two concussions in the space of three weeks, the second came at Forbidden Door
- Cole feared he may never wrestle again
- Cole’s original goal was to come back at Full Gear 2022. He had an examination two weeks before the event where he was informed that he wouldn’t be able to return by then.
