As the AEW Dynamite Recap continues, Darby takes up the mic, says he won’t wait to be jumped from behind, dares Ethan and Scorpio to come out here.

Paul Wight makes his way out for the Weigh-In between Cody Rhodes and Anthony Ogogo!

That comes after the commercial break, AEW Dynamite Recap will resume. They got the US and UK flags hanging up there, as a big scale is in the center. Wight says there will be no shenanigans, this will be a serious weigh-in. He introduces Ogogo. Nightmare Factory accompanies Ogogo, QT derides the fans, calls them Tebow Country and asks why they’re booing Paul Wight. Wight says the people didn’t pay money to see QT run his mouth. Warns Ogogo not to play tough with him. Seems the whole posse is allowed in the ring. Now he introduces the American Dream, Cody Rhodes! And Cody’s got his own entourage of students.

Wight wants to keep the order here, but there’s a battle royal’s worth of people out here. Cody goes first, takes off the shoes, jacket and yes the track pants. Steps on the scale. Wight fiddles with the scale for a while. Ogogo seems annoyed. Wight says Cody’s at 218. Rhodes flexes! As this happens, actual ass Memorial Day fireworks are going off in the background, that is beautifully timed. “USA” chant as Ogogo strips down to his Union Jack undies. He steps up to the scale. “Austin Powers” chant in response to the boxers. Wight says 219, whaddya know they’re very much in the same weight division.

QT speaks up and says Anthony is heavier and has the advantage at DoN! Ogogo goes to the second rope and poses. Cody does the same. Heels leave in annoyance eventually, Cody thanks Paul Wight, says they’ll see them at DoN. That was surprisingly nothing.

Stadium Stampede vignette.

Jericho says Blood and Guts was not the end but the beginning. MJF says they picked Stadium Stampede because the Inner Circle lost last year. Tully talks off the many weapons stored around the stadium. Jericho says they know what it’s like, they know what to do. Sammy says expect the unexpected. PNP assures us they don’t lose twice in a row. MJF is pleased with the idea of forcing the Inner Circle to break up for good. Shawn Spears caps it off, saying some men are born to be buried.

Powerhouse Hobbs and Christian Cage fighting it out backstage! Hobbs throws him into a fence, Cage ducks a line, nails him in the stomach, I think with a dumbbell? Officials separate them.

Winner: Hangman Page

That was evidently a real stiff one. Page might need some stitches.

Taz on the mic afterwards, introduces Brian Cage. Page tells Taz to shut up, he knows the plan, Taz starts talking and distracting people, then comes Ricky Starks and Hook. Indeed he turns around and sees Hook come up to the apron. Page says he expects that from Taz but he expected more from Brian. Asks him if he really needs these guys’ help to whoop his ass. Says he thought he’d have more balls than that but maybe they’ve all shrunk up by now. Cage ain’t happy. Hangman challenges him to leave these assholes out of this at DoN and fight him like a man.

Taz objects to that but Cage gets in his face, says he didn’t need those guys before and he doesn’t need them on Sunday. If he wants him one-on-one, he’s got him!

Jon Moxley and Eddie Kingston have the Young Bucks’ Dior shoes.

They make fun of how they couldn’t pull them off anyway. Say it’s time to get serious as they lay the shoes down on the dirt and… the screen goes to black. Not sure if that was on purpose or not. As we return they restart the segment. Mox say the Young Bucks are the best tag team in the world and supposedly, Mox and Kingston aren’t even a real team. But they’ve had each others’ backs going back years and years. They want those tag titles, the most important tag titles in the world.

Kingston says they’ll quit. Knows they’ll quit. They can’t handle the pressure. Says Mox and himself represent the underdogs. Eddie says Bucks won’t even be in AEW anymore, maybe he can be EVP!

Tony Schiavone out to introduce Orange Cassidy – but instead out comes PAC!

He makes Tony leave and says this Sunday, Orange is irrelevant. The one who will beat Kenny Omega and become AEW World Champion is him, the Bastard! Says is this the world title reign Kenny is proud of, where he’s ducking and dodging and manipulating? Says it’s pathetic. Challenges Kenny to come out here face-to-face to show the world exactly what will happen this Sunday. Don Callis shows up on the screen and says he wouldn’t be in the same ring as him, let alone the same building. Says Kenny Omega and himself aren’t happy with him, he’s a violent and aggressive sociopath, so he wouldn’t be with him but somebody will.

Kenny rushes out to jump PAC but he was ready for it and he nails him! But the Good Brothers rush out to batters him, until Fenix and Penta make their way out and run them off! Still Kenny and PAC are in the ring, Kenny takes PAC up for the One Winged Angel – only for Orange’s music to hit! He comes out with his Best Friend buddies. Cassidy rolls his way into the ring, squares up with Kenny. Puts a hand up… to pull out a letter. It says “For Kenny” and it took several attempts to write that name. Omega takes it and opens it up… and inside is the shredded up contract!

Orange drops him with the Orange Punch!

He then reaches for the title… but PAC stops him! Pulls him up for a Powerbomb but Orange escapes – another Orange Punch and he stands tall! Holds up the AEW World Title.

Backstage interview with Jade Cargill and Tony Schiavone, talking up the open challenge she made that Kilynn King has answered. Matt Hardy interrupts to throw his hat in the ring again.

Britt Baker interrupts. She says she didn’t think they’d invite her to this but she comes in peace, Reba’s not here. She came to say congratulations! Britt says Shida was champion through the most difficult time in professional wrestling. Baker notes something she wants to take back from her interview with JR. She said she was the face of the women’s division. But after she takes that title, she’ll be the face of a whole new era! Just as a past era was all about 3:16, this era is all about DMD!

We hear Sammy Guevara’s music and he’s in the crowd with his signs, leading into the inset. He hands them out to the fans, and the cards threaten the Pinnacle but mostly Shawn Spears.

Out they come, for the loudest singalong in a while.
