AEW DYNAMITE BRODIE LEE CELEBRATION OF LIFE SOUNDOFF – DECEMBER 30, 2020

It’s Wednesday Night, you all know what that means. I know we haven’t had him on Dynamite for a little while now but this one is definitely going to be weird without Brodie.

Great to start with the entire roster and Brodie’s family on the stage for the 10 bell salute. Great to see Brodie Lee Jr with his Dark Order mask on.

Moxley in a video segment talking about his over 10 year relationship with Brodie.

MATT HARDY & PRIVATE PARTY (MARQ QUEN & ISIAH KASSIDY) VS. COLT CABANA & THE YOUNG BUCKS (NICK & MATT JACKSON) – SIX MAN TAG TEAM MATCH
Great to see Colt able and willing to go when he is so noticeably shaken.
Colt Cabana getting a great chant from the crowd after his springing moonsault to the crowd on the outside.
Matt Hardy is honouring Brodie by staying in his new character.
Chris Jericho proving again he could be the best colour commentator or play by play in the industry if he wanted to be.
Loved that Matt Jackson was able to counter Matt Hardy with the Twist of Fate. Even better to follow up with Colt Cabana getting the hot tag with the crowd loving it.
Matt Hardy tells Private Party to go to the top but it backfires but no pin attempt off of it.
Gin and Juice followed up by a Twist of Fate and Senton and shooting star press on Nick Jackson but Matt and Colt break it up.
Marq Quen doesn’t want to use the chair that Matt Hardy was holding. Great furthering of the split of Private Party and Matt Hardy.
Indi Taker followed by Superman Pin from Colt Cabana on Marq Quen leads to the pinfall victory.
Post match, The Acclaimed’s music hits and they want to rap on all the Dark Order stuff. Before they can SCU come out and throw them in the ring to a waiting Super Kick Party and Boom Boom Elbows from Colt.

Darby Allin without makeup talking about how he told Sammy Guevara that he wanted to wrestle Brodie the minute he came in. Talks about how Brodie had no ego and would always allow him to pick his brain.

STU GRAYSON, EVIL UNO & LANCE ARCHER W/ JAKE ROBERTS VS. EDDIE KINGSTON, THE BUTCHER & THE BLADE W/ THE BUNNY – SIX MAN TAG TEAM MATCH
Lance Archer comes out with Dark Order wearing a soaked white wife beater and blue jeans to honour Brodie.
Eddie Kingston says he loves Brodie and this is for him and that the Dark Order is nothing without Brodie and they’re about to prove it.
Love the intelligence of Evil Uno to have the ref check Eddie’s boot only to boot Eddie to start the match.
Great team work by Archer and Dark Order here slamming each other on Eddie Kingston.
So great to see Jake Roberts do the exact same thing that Bunny did even better that it was followed up by a Brodie Slam.
Evil Uno looking real strong in this one going fist for fist with him as we come back from commercial.
Great pounce from Lance Archer. These guys are all moving like it is a PPV payday. Great to see.
Eddie Kingston calls out Jake Roberts before hitting Stu Grayson with a great looking DDT.
What a sick DDT from Stu Grayson on Butcher to the hardest part of the ring.
Fatality from Dark Order on Blade leads to Evil Uno getting the pinfall victory. Very touching that you can see Evil Uno have a quick moment with Blade.
Post match, Eddie Kingston gets in the ring and Jake Roberts hits Eddie with a clothesline.

Next we hear stories from Dax Harwood, Arn Anderson, Colt Cabana and Bryce who was very hard hit by the loss.

ADAM PAGE, JOHN SILVER & ALEX REYNOLDS VS. MJF, SANTANA & ORTIZ W/ WARDLOW, SAMMY GUEVARA & JAKE HAGER – SIX MAN TAG TEAM MATCH
Silver is wearing gear that is a replica of Brodie’s Exalted One gear.
Reynolds and Silver pull out papers and throws them at Santana & Ortiz. Great moment.
MJF gets in the face of Brodie Lee Jr. AKA Negative One. Great heel heat that if they’re going to have him at ringside, I’m okay with.
Hangman lined up MJF for the Buckshot Lariat buyt MJF sees it and bails out of the ring.
John Silver is getting put over by the commentators so well that it added to the reactions he got from the crowd.
Beautiful roll through into the cutter by Santana on John Silver leading to each worker getting in a move on the last in classic six man.
What kind of Destroyer did John Silver just hit on MJF and how is MJF not broken in half?
Heat Seeker from MJF into Double Team from Santana and Ortiz on Silver but Reynolds makes the save.
Wardlow enters the ring but Erick Redbeard, Big Red, Rowan what ever you want to call him comes out and takes out Wardlow.
Buckshot Lariat from Hangman but Silver can’t get the pin thanks to MJF who then takes the mask off Negative One who hits MJF with the Kendo Stick.
Lariat from John Silver on Ortiz leads to him getting the pinfall.
Post match, Silver breaks down crying in the ring and is embraced in the ring by Hangman, Reynolds and Erick. Rowen and Silver are really showing their emotion.

Eddie Kingston is letting us and Brodie’s kids know that as long as people remember him, he won’t be gone.

TAY CONTI & ANNA JAY VS. BRITT BAKER & PENELOPE FORD W/ REBEL, KIP SABIAN & MIRO
Great to hear that this is the biggest crowd for AEW at Daly’s Place since the start of the Pandemic.
I was with JR thinking Anna Jay was named after Agent 99 in Get Smart and not Wayne Gretzky but both make sense.
Really good that they put Tay and Anna in there with some of their better female wrestlers to help carry them in there.
As expected, we get a restaurant quality picture in picture during this one.
Back from the break with Tay Conti making her comeback as her and Penelope pump kick each other. Great work from Anna Jay after the hot tag showing how far she has come.
Beautiful Kick from Anna Jay before she gets choked up leading to Britt Baker hitting her from behind. Anna kicks out after two with Britt not hooking the leg.
Anna Jay gets the Queen Slayer on Penelope Ford with Tay Conti taking out Rebel and Britt forcing the tap out.
Post match, Anna Jay and Tay Conti embrace showing lots of emotion.
Tony is on his way to ringside at the request of Britt Baker all pissed off. Britt says she is sick of the conspiracy around here. Thunder Rosa then comes out and attacks Britt having to be held back by officials.

Chris Jericho talks about the 27 times he worked with Brodie including a match against him at a Saudi show.
Chris talks about how Brodie knew that a sticker in the hotel room pointed to where Mecca was and how he proved in 6 months in AEW what he was capable of.

TEAM TAZ (POWERHOUSE HOBBS, BRIAN CAGE & RICKY STARKS) W/ TAZ & HOOK VS. ORANGE CASSIDY, CODY RHODES & TEN W/ ARN ANDERSON – BRODIE LEE JR. SIX MAN TAG TEAM DREAM MATCH
Interesting to see Dark Order and Best Friends escorting their respectful partners to the ring but go back after.
Nice to see Orange Cassidy go over and have a hand bump with Brodie Jr. at Ringside.
I wondered how this match could be a main event with a 20 minute time limit at 9:25pm then we got 10 minutes of wrestler introductions and commercials before it started.
Great to see Cody give Bryce a big hug before the match started. Really shows how much a family a wrestling locker room is.
Interesting to see them actually show the dynamics between Cassidy, Ten and Cody since they all have history or strange character traits.
Amazing the reaction Orange Cassidy gets even without a maxed out crowd.
Loved seeing Cassidy using his tap kicks on Hobbs in the picture in picture. It amazes how people still don’t understand the logic behind them.
JR and Jericho both mention the comparison of Ricky Starks with The Rock. He definitely could get to that level in the future.
Was just going to write about how I have not heard a 10 chant in AEW before when Jericho said it.
Great to see Arn and Tazz square off with the Chairs before Cassidy hits the Orange Punch and Cody gets a Cross Rhodes before giving Ten the pinfall on Ricky Starks.
Post match, Hook and the rest of Team Taz lay the beat down on the faces before the lights go out. Darby Allin’s music hits and he comes out from Moxley’s usual entrance.
Darby’s music goes off and the lights go out again for Sting’s Music to hit and he comes out from the same spot.

Back with Cody Rhodes still in the ring to start the end of the night Tribute to Brodie. Brodie chant from the crowd is the loudest chant of the night.
Cody breaks when he says how beautiful of a man Brodie Lee was. He then brings out Negative One, Brodie Lee Jr who comes out with his mother, TK and Ten with Brodie’s Boots.
TK hands the TNT Championship to Brodie Lee Jr calling him and his family the TNT champion for life. Did they just retire the TNT Title?
We end with a video package honouring Brodie Lee showing pictures of him throughout his career and life. Amazing to see the pictures of those like Bray and Becky Lynch.
