Any massage being given by Luther looks awkward, that is unavoidable.
Chris Jericho on Commentary is gold but him cosplaying as Don Cherry is enough to win over NXT!
MJF & WARDLOW VS. JURASSIC EXPRESS (JUNGLE BOY & LUCHASAURUS) W/ MARKO STUNT
What the heck is MJF wearing? Is he just trying to get uglier outfits?
Wow. Mentioning a man’s dead father and the competition?
Jurassic Express wastes no time and come right to the ring.
Great heel team work by MJF and Wardlow letting the emotion of Jurassic Express be their downfall.
Nice touch to have MJF notice the tag is about to happen and gets Knox’s attention so he doesn’t see the tag.
Jungle Boy is finally able to get the hot tag to Luchasaurus.
Jericho speaking spanish is either the most hilarious thing ever or extremely offensive. I’m not spanish so I can’t tell.
Should we count how many times Jericho says Happy Canada Day in the episode?
Step Up rana from Wardlow was very impressive just as was the reverse rana by Jungle Boy on Wardlow.
All four are down and then we get the double kip up by Jungle Boy and MJF followed by Luchasaurus and Wardlow doing the same.
Fourth Happy Canada Day So far from Jericho.
Luchasaurus barely kicked out after the low blow by MJF. More surprised he kicked out after the Senton from Wardlow.
MJF has the ring on but hits Wardlow by mistake.
Twisting inside outside swinging DDT by Jungle Boy was great.
Luchasaurus gets the pinfall victory on Wardlow to protect MJF’s claim.
Apparently there is going to be a puppy battle royal.
In the crowd Lance Archer is attacking Joey Janela but Sonny Kiss is holding Joey back.
Our fifth Happy Canada Day from Jericho and even the acknowledgement of the Don Cherry comparison.
Recap time for Shida and Ford to build the match up next.
PENELOPE FORD W/ KIP SABIAN VS. HIKARU SHIDA – AEW WOMEN’S WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH
Britt Baker is apparently there and Tony is reading her comments.
After some shoving before the match Aubrey boots Sabian from ringside.
Good fast paced to start the match with Shida wanting to take Ford out quick.
I like when someone is obviously able to move but doesn’t and it turns out to be them luring the opponent in instead of having the move done on them.
Penelope has finally got in control of the match after Shida having control most of the start.
Massive looking kick by Penelope on Shida.
Falcon Arrow by Shida but Penelope counters and rolls up Shida for a two count.
Sweet looking matrix from Penelope to avoid the move from Shida then to hit the Stunner.
Kip comes running when Penelope distracts Aubrey at ringside. After Shida takes Kip out with the kendo stick Ford runs in and hits a springboard stunner but only gets a two count.
Falcon Arrow after two kicks and Penelope Ford still kicks out. Ford is looking great tonight.
Shida finally gets the pinfall victory to retain the Championship with the running knee.
Off to Taz to hear him critique Jon Moxley.
JAKE HAGER W/ CATALINA HAGER VS. CODY W/ ARN ANDERSON – AEW TNT CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH
Cody is wearing a Great American Bash Style Shirt. He is my Hero!
Nothing else is needed to make Jake Hager a heel other than showing us his wife.
Like seeing both men counter an ankle lock from the other but even more impressive is Cody countering one into one.
Isn’t “Legal Cheater” an oxymoron?
Nice twist with having Jake Hager attacking Arn and pushing him into the stage.
Nice touch to have Arn stand in front of the ringpost so Hager couldn’t throw Cody into it.
Our sixth Happy Canada Day after the TSN Turning Point reference from Jericho.
I know Hager is a big man but there is no way his Hager Bomb hurts as much as a Vader Bomb would.
Anyone else get a sinking feeling the minute Excalibur mentioned the time limit?
Arn is distracting the referee complaining about Catalina but really Dustin runs down and hits Jake.
Jake puts Cody in a choke but Cody is able to go back and pin Jake Hager to retain the TNT Championship.
Post Match, Hager attacks the referee once he realizes he isn’t the winner.
Off to a CKY video from Darby Allin.
After the break here comes Orange Cassidy who is going to join the commentary but in his way.
SANTANA & ORTIZ VS. PRIVATE PARTY (ISIAH KASSIDY & MARQ QUEN) W/ MATT HARDY
Looks like we are getting Brood version of Matt Hardy this week.
Why are all four men wearing red and black?
Has anyone checked if Orange Cassidy pulled a Tyson and fell asleep?
Pretty even match as you’d expect so far with both teams getting some of their spots in.
A couple nice double team spots from Santana & Ortiz in this match. Really like the Sitout powerbomb then thrown into the turnbuckles.
Hardy able to stop Santana & Ortiz from using the Stuffed Sock.
Ortiz is unable to make the save in time and after a Gin & Juice from Private Party getting the pinfall victory.
Post Match, Jericho is held back from Brawling with Orange Cassidy.
Backstage for an interview with Hangman Page and Kenny Omega. Hangman puts over Best Friends but says they are still the best.
No more Jericho on Commentary for the main event.
Wait, So the Tag Champions will have to defend again next week but the TNT Champion won’t have to?
Taz and Cage are out to complain about the title match being moved another week. He says he isn’t complaining and they’re happy for another week.
Taz does make a dig at WWE saying he wouldn’t get people infected because he’d be tested for the THIRD time if he came next week as AEW doesn’t run a sloppy shop.
BEST FRIENDS (TRENT & CHUCK TAYLOR) VS. HANGMAN ADAM PAGE & KENNY OMEGA
Love that Trent’s mom drove them to the ring in a minivan to copy the FTR entrance.
Nice back and forth with Kenny and Chuck starting before both tagging out for Page and Trent to go back and forth.
FTR have come out with beach chairs and coolers to watch the match close up.
That definitely looked like Omega legit hit his head on the floor on the outside.
Nasty looking Piledriver from Chuck on Kenny Omega. Not sure how much more Kenny’s head can take in this match.
Kenny barely was able to break up the pin on Hangman from Trent.
Was that a sit out powerbomb from Chuck Taylor or a sit out piledriver? Either way it was sick.
Hangman gets his lariat and the boys retain.
Post Match, FTR join to celebrate but Kenny dumps the beer out causing Young Bucks to come out and preventing a brawl from happening as the show ends.
