Hangman Page comes out and makes Ricky hold his beer as he rushes in. He puts up a good fight in a 3-on-1 but the numbers catch up, and Cage drops him with a big powerbomb.

Varsity Blonds with a promo. Pillman Jr. says his dad isn’t what got him into the business. That man is what kept him AWAY from wrestling for the longest because all he ever knew was the darkest side of the ring. Until he met the Young Bucks, who taught him that this could be done the right way. Griff Garrison talks about how he was discovered by them as well, but they’re not who he used to know. Brian says it’s a shame they had to go back to their old ways but they can’t stop the Varsity Blondes and Julia Hart, they vow to become the AEW World Tag Team Champions.

Good stuff! Really like the metal cover of Wild Thing.

Chris Jericho chatting with Dean Malenko backstage, blows off an interview and warns him not to make the Man of 1000 Holds angry. Malenko says Jericho has four more, but Chris admits he forgot a few.

Scorpio Sky and Ethan Page with a promo in the ring. Scorpio says he grew up loving Sting, said he was everything good in the business and he wanted to be just like him. But then something happened: time. He doesn’t have to tell him because he already knows, he is not the same man he used to be. And Sky is no longer a child. He is a grown man so step aside or he’ll put him down.

Ethan wants to finish the interview without Schiavone. Says Scorpio already proved he can put Sting down when he locked him into a Heelhook to make him miss a week of Dynamite and on that week, they threw Darby Allin down the steps! And the week after, he loses the TNT title! They won’t take full credit, Miro will be a great champ. But he does want Darby to know, it was a LITTLE BIT… his fault! And he will take EVERYTHING from Darby Allin! Wants him to know, he will be the nail in his coffin!

The lights fall! Sting makes his way out… and Darby Allin appears from the crowd to attack with his skateboard!

Darby and Sting take it to the heels. Sting wants revenge on Scorpio, looking to put the Scorpion Deathlock on him… Darby cracks Ethan across the back with the skateboard to stop him from getting involved!

The Pinnacle are seen at a restaurant. MJF cackles about what a funny man Chris Jericho is, the pineapple, My Jerkoff Friend, wanting to douse them all in bubbly. Hopes he laughs himself silly. For once he’s dealing with the guy who always gets the last laugh. Dax Harwood says it’s not enjoyable to beat up the Inner Circle all the time. They should be going after every title in AEW and defining this company. But they can’t do it because of them. Says it’s ridiculous that after 30 years Jericho is still making a mockery of the wrestling business. Calls last year’s Stadium Stampede a Dog ‘n Pony Show. Vows that this year will be different. He’s cut off when Shawn Spears attacks the waiter, apparently not happy with the wine he’s serving. Tully calls him off and throws the waiter some money to make up for it.

Kenny and Doc intrude on the doctor’s office while Orange is being tended to. They make the Best Friends leave. Trent “accidentally” bumps into the cameraman who he claims is Cutler. They make him watch the brutal powerbomb that knocked him out. Kenny says they appreciate him as the mascot of AEW, not so much the world title match in a PPV. Don says sometimes this happens, you have to protect a wrestler from himself. Says they have a contract for him, if he signs it, he will be removed from the Double or Nothing main event since he’s hurt, BUT later down the line he’ll get his dream match with Omega.

Cassidy does not watch it and slowwwly rips it apart. They say that he’s not in the right frame of mind. Kenny tells him nothing went wrong in the powerbomb, he got hurt because this is the level of competition at the top of the card. Callis says they expected this reaction so they made him a double, hands him the next contract and tells him to just think about it. They leave him to it.

As the AEW Dynamite Recap continues, out comes the Inner Circle!

Santana still missing. Ortiz holding the mic upside down as he says everyone wants to know what they’re gonna do about the Pinnacle. Says at this point, talk is cheap, they want a fight. Guevara says they’re on the same page. As long as the two factions both work for AEW this is never going to end. He doesn’t care if he has to jump off the balcony for a Shooting Star to their necks, or douse them with bubbly every week. They won’t stop this until they’re done. Says they looked like dumbass fishes last week. “Dumbass Fishes” chant. Hager talks about how they won’t be like them. Ortiz says mediocre and Hager agrees.

Chris Jericho talks about the stip that they have to break up if they lose the Stadium Stampede match, and is it worth it? Talks about Blood and Guts and says he still wonders if that was worth it, all they sacrificed. All they left behind, buckets of blood and parts of their body. Admits that Max hurt him. Not just the physical pain, but the mental pain. Talks about how being pushed off that cage was the most terrifying moment of his life. If he landed any higher and his head hit the stage, that would’ve been game over for him. Terrifying his family, and everyone watching, was it worth it?

When he thinks about getting his revenge on him though, he knows for a fact that it IS worth it! So the answer, they say simultaneously: “YES!” Says they don’t deserve to be a faction if they can’t beat the Pinnacle after all this. They told them they’d have to kill them to get rid of them and they’re still alive! Vows to dance on their faces and piss on their graves.

Jade Cargill once again interviewed backstage.

She talks once again about being her own boss, Mark Sterling comes up and says he doesn’t want her to work for him, he wants to work for her! Brings up how Matt and Vickie already have women’s wrestlers they manage so that’s a conflict of interest, and Taz named his stable after himself; Sterling wants Team Jade! Brings up that it’s her second Stand-Up Interview with Tony in a row, where’s her sitdown with JR?

Jade seems to like what she hears but tells him he won’t be cutting into her interview and makes him leave and she’ll think about it.

Red Velvet nearly crawls over to the rope, Deeb transitions to a Single Leg Crab to pull her to the center. Tries to reapply the Serenity Lock but Velvet with a cradle for a nearfall!

SCU with an interview backstage. Marvez asks Daniels about the cryptic tweet, “That might be all” that he sent out and asks what the future holds for him. Daniels simply shakes Kaz’s hand and whispers something in his ear before walking off. Kazarian says he can’t put into words what that man has done for him. Whatever path CD chooses to take, he deserves to take it. Kazarian says last week they lost so much more than a match. He doesn’t just blame Nick and Matt, he blames every member of the Elite. Says what they have now is a bomb they cannot defuse and a gun they can’t unload. That’s a promise from Frankie Kazarian.

Miro with a promo in the ring. Thanks Jesus Christ for making him and giving him strength and power to destroy everybody! That is his talent. But that is not Darby Allin’s talent. After he talked all that crap he beat him up so bad and took what he said could not be taken. It doesn’t matter if you’re the baddest man on Earth or the hottest thing in AEW, if you have what he wants, it’s done.

Miro says he pissed him off but he’s a reasonable man, he forgives him. Tells him to go home and make one of his creepy student videos. “We Want Darby” chant, Miro takes off the TNT title and holds it up, says he’s got Darby right here. Tells the world he’ll destroy Darby over and over and over…

Lance Archer interrupts!

He says he’s been the monster around here since Miro was still trying to have a day to himself. Reminds us that he was in the first TNT title match against Cody. He didn’t walk home with the title that night but he will be damned if he doesn’t do it at Double or Nothing. Talks about how this will be the biggest monster match since Godzilla vs. Kong and promises to make Miro his Bulgarian Bitch.

Miro mocks him for his uncreative insult. Tells Jake to hold him back, and says after he’s done with him, no amount of yoga in the world will save his life. And he agrees that Everybody Dies, but he insists that Archer dies first!
