If the title match is going on last they better have Rusev ready to come out at the end or something. I love Mox, and Brodie has improved massively since dropping the majority of the Vince stuff, but that doesn't feel like a main event at all.

Did I mishear or did one of the commentators actually say "the main event of Double or Nothing" when referring to the world title match? 

Wonder if Jake and Arn will get it on at DON!

They definitely referred to it as the main event, although it's upper mid at best. I hope this Brodie Lee rubbish is meant as a placeholder feud for Moxley before the crowds come back and isnt the original plan for him. They're really dragging him down with this shite.

It didn't really achieve anything but I think I liked that Jake/Arn segment more than most. I mean, it's Arn Anderson and Jake Roberts! Two of the best talkers in the game. And I dug it being off the cuff and a bit all over the place. It was easily the best, most engaging thing on the show, with a shit load of tension close to boiling over. Where the hell was Cody?

Don't like Orange Cassidy in empty arenas. Keep him special! If anyone should have a Brock Lesnar schedule, it's him.

Hopefully Britt Baker's injury isn't serious. They need a new approach to agenting these women's matches before someone gets fucked. This overly complex, Kenny Omega/NJPW move trading and clusterFuck booking just ain't sustainable. 

Popped big time for Page. He's a stud. Man can't do nothing wrong. 

I really, really fucking hate Jim Ross. It's like he's determined to suck any joy out of the show.

The Butcher & The Blade dressing like a pair of hipsters was a great sight, It somehow really suited them and Blade trying to be Leon The Professional needs to be his gimmick now.

I thought it was one of the weakest episodes of Dynamite ever until Adam Page turned up. I’m so glad that even without a crowd he still felt like a big deal and continued the brilliant act of showing up, smashing folks up, then ignoring everyone else and fucking off into the sunset. He’s the next big thing.

Sammy Guevara though. The success story of the year. Has there been a single AEW show where he hasn’t done something stupid or funny to set himself apart?

I've been really surprised at the reaction to last night's show, I thought it was excellent and one of the best empty arena episodes. 

The PAC promo was incredible, Sammy (as you've mentioned) was an absolute star once again, MJF was very entertaining and Roberts/Anderson was good too. Page/The Bucks returning at the end was the icing on the cake for me. 

Orange Cassidy was fun as usual, and I'm far more invested than I ever thought I would be in the guy getting a World Title shot at some point. Preferably when the crowds are back, the reaction would be off-the-charts, particularly if it's against a heel champion.

I liked it. Every week there seems to be at least one fucking brilliant moment. Page sprinting across an entire football field in cowboy boots to batter fools is lovely stuff. How far Page has come along is really impressive. A year ago he looked like a deer in headlights sometimes. Now he's the heir to Stone Cold Steve Austin.

The Mox/Brodie stuff is definitely a B feud rather than main event level but I've always liked a B feud to give a Champ a solid win on the way to their next big opponent. I enjoyed their segment well enough.

Loved Jake and Arn. Cody is really good at including loads of different elements to his big matches and I'm very intrigued to see where they go with the TNT title match.

All the vignettes were really good. Spears was interesting for the first time ever. Great to see Pac again.

I hope Fenix isn't dead. Hopefully Pentagon will be back soon.

Really excited for Saturdays show. Stadium Stampede is going to be so much fun.

For me Spears has been one of the more underrated members of the AEW roster, from a character POV at least. His feud with Cody was excellent, he’s a surprisingly entertaining promo and his pairing with Tully, should that still be a thing, has been excellent. The guy deserves a more consistent run on Dynamite than he’s had to this point.

I have visions, and dependent on if and how they can bump, of there being some sort of ref bump/distraction and Jake giving Cody a DDT, leaving the ring smirking with Archer behind him in the ring only for Archer to turn around into a spinebuster from Double A either that or Jake planting Arn or Brandi with a DDT on the outside

Three injuries in 1 night by all accounts. 

Rumours one of the Jacksons has injured or potentially broke a rib on the dive off the wall, Fenix's hip is pretty banged up after free falling onto nothing and from what I've seen online the suspicion is a torn ACL for Baker (which could force her to take time off being a dentist with surgery, unable to get around etc). 

The Baker injury could have been avoided, it was a stupid move and genuinely could have injured her three or four ways. 

Fenix just makes me worried what injuries could happen from a ladder match with no crowd Saturday as well if that's the level of stunt we're getting without one involved.

Nah. He was pretty entertaining in this latest episode but on the whole they've shown why he never got any further in WWE/NXT. He's fine for what he is but he's really not underrated.

Shame about the injuries, whichever Buck is hurt won’t be a problem as they will be able to work the match and just do an injury angle. If Fenix isn’t 100% he should be pulled from the ladder match because that guy will be attempting all sorts of mad bollocks.

If Baker can no longer perform as a dentist while injured then that is a real shame and hopefully AEW take care of her financially. Was a dangerous move and not necessary. She’s been great value in the women’s division and will be missed.

I can’t think of any other injuries AEW wrestlers have picked up which don’t involve Cody’s skull. Mad that they went a year without any and then had three on the same show
