Cody Vowed To Retain At Full Gear
Dark Order (John Silver, 10, Colt Cabana) faced Cody, Billy Gunn, Austin Gunn in the main event. Darby Allin was shown in the crowd before the match. Cody will defend his TNT Championship against Darby Allin this Saturday night in Full Gear.
Match Recap: Cody and Gunn Club controlled the action early and isolated Silver in the middle of the ring. Austin hit Silver with a Dropkick for a near fall and tagged in Billy. John retreated to the corner and Colt Cabana rubbed Silver’s head. Colt then tagged in and elbowed Billy in the face.
Billy connected with a slam for a two count. Austin and 10 tagged in and Gunn connected with a Back Body Drop. Silver hit Austin with a cheap shot as Colt Cabana distracted referee Aubrey Edwards as Dynamite went to a break.

Billy hit the Fameasser on 10 but Silver broke up the cover. Cody hit Silver with a Powerslam and then delivered a Splash to Cabana outside the ring.

After the match, Dark Order surrounded the ring and John Silver grabbed a chair. Orange Cassidy rushed the ring and hit Siliver with the Orange Punch. Cody grabbed a microphone and said that Darby Allin is telling everyone that TNT doesn’t want Allin to be the face of the network. Cody said that is false and that he was the one that recruited Darby to AEW. Cody told Darby to take one last look at the TNT Championship and at the superstar that left the empire and actually won. Cody added that Darby will not capture the ace belt because he is not the ace.
Opinion: This was a great moment for Austin and it is ridiculous how Billy looks the same as he did 15 years ago. Eddie Kingston and Jon Moxley stole the show with their promo and it should be an absolute war this Saturday night. AEW needs to fix their audio in backstage segments because sometimes it was difficult to hear what was going on due to an echo. Overall, Dynamite was a decent show this week and there are several matches I am looking forward to at Full Gear.
