It’s Wednesday and you know what that means. Dynamite is back home! Hailing from Daily’s Place, it’s AEW Dynamite Homecoming. Adam Page goes one on one with Claudio Castagnoli in a dream bout. Sting & Darby Allin go against Konosuke Takeshita & Powerhouse Hobbs of the Don Callis family. On top of that there is a pair of 8-person tags both from the womens and mens division. Ricky Starks squares off with Sammy Guevara, who makes his return to singles action.

Adam Page defeats Claudio Castagnoli

Page came out all guns blazing, and the match didn’t slow down after that. These are the type of matches that need to be on the show, the roster is utilized best in this way. Castagnoli looked fantastic showing his great feats of strength on Page. The match would carry on outside for the bit with some good old-fashioned brawling. It was a double buckshot lariat that finished the match and gave Page the victory.

Orange Cassidy, Adam Copeland, Preston Vance, Dustin Rhodes defeat Brian Cage, Gates of Agony, Lance Archer

In honor of Brodie Lee who was a big part of the pandemic Daily’s Place shows, Preston Vance, his hand-picked male protegee teamed up with the babyfaces in this matchup. Lance Archer was on the heel side, and he looked great in there with three fellow brutes. Vance had a good showing in a rare prime time tv outing for the LFI member. The match overall was fun and a good addition to the show. Vance ended up picking up the victory for his team after the heel team fell apart with a rift between Archer and the Mogul Embassy.

Samoa Joe Promo

Joe looking dapper with the classic black strap AEW title over his shoulder, came out to the ring and spoke about Hook, who recently called out Joe on social media. Soon after, Swerve Strickland with the Mogul Embassy came out to confront the AEW champion. Strickland told Joe that he didn’t want to make it personal, but he is gunning for the AEW title. Hangman Page then came out eyeing Strickland at first before sizing up Joe. Page talked about his 2023 but mentioned that he lost sight of the AEW title, it will be his goal to regain the title in 2024.

After Strickland and Page left the ring, Hook interrupted Joe as he circled the ring, he stared down Joe and told Joe, “one week”. The match was later announced for next week on Dynamite.

Toni Storm Backstage Interview

Storm was asked about Deonna Purrazzo, who debuted last week. Storm didn’t know who that was, hilariously. Mariah May also continues to fight for Storm’s attention as Storm continuously shuns her.

Sammy Guevara defeats Ricky Starks

Guevara is not a natural babyface which made this a weird dynamic. Early on, the work wasn’t necessarily bad but the match didn’t click. Guevara got the win with an inside cradle unexpectedly in what ended up being a flat match.

Guevara and Starks shook hands after the match which served as a distraction for Big Bill to come in to attack Guevara. Chris Jericho came for the save as a brawl ensued as Judas played on the speakers. These two teams will face off in a street face at Battle of Belts, this Saturday.

Willow Nightingale, Kris Statlander, Anna Jay, Thunder Rosa defeat Ruby Soho, Saraya, Skye Blue, Julia Hart

This was another PWG style 8-person tag. This was a decent showcase of the decent depth of the women’s roster, however no individuals really stood out in the action. Julia Hart was very over in her entrance and the crowd seemed invested in her face off with Anna Jay. Jay, like Vance earlier in the night got the victory in an homage for Brodie Lee, as she was his female protégé.

Wheeler Yuta Vignette

Yuta called out Eddie Kingston as he is eyeing the Continental Crown. Kingston beat all of Yuta’s team-mates in the Blackpool Combat Club while Yuta has built up a nine-match win streak on Rampage. The two will face off on Collision for the title.

Roderick Strong defeats Bryan Keith

The match wasn’t long, but it was effective. Strong looked fantastic and while he lost, Keith continues to impress in all his appearances on AEW thus far.

After the match Adam Cole grabbed the microphone and called Strong the best pound-for-pound wrestler in the world. Cole praised all his stable mates and pretty much regurgitated the same promo from last week.

Deonna Purrazzo Backstage Interview

Purrazzo once again called out Toni Storm before being interrupted by Red Velvet. Both Purrazzo and Velvet will be making their Collision debut this Saturday as they face off against each other.

Sting & Darby Allin defeat Powerhouse Hobbs & Konosuke Takeshita

Takeshita and Allin picked right off from their fantastic clash from last week. Early on, Allin attempted a coffin drop to the outside before Takeshita caught him and gave him rolling german suplexes. Allin was rag-dolled throughout the whole match by both Takeshita and Hobbs. Ric Flair later got involved as he gingerly entered the ring and pull off a few chops.

On the outside, Allin ended up climbing the stage and did an unreal coffin drop onto Takeshita. However, that wasn’t it as Sting delivered a scorpion death drop on Hobbs from a high platform into a table. Sting never phones it in and the legend himself picked up the victory for another check in the win column.

After the match, Tony Schiavone interviewed Sting in the ring. Schiavone asked Sting who his final opponent will be, but before he could answer, the Young Bucks came out to interrupt. The bucks have been away for months but they have made their intentions clear. The greatest tag team of all time to end Sting’s career? It’ll be interesting to see what happens next as we are less than two months away from Sting’s final ever match.
