Dynamite Review 5/24/23

AEW came from the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas and was the go home show for Double or Nothing. Commentary was the usual Taz, Tony, and Excalibur. I would like to make a note these Dynamite reviews are wrote while the show is ongoing. If something is mentioned and then occurs it is not due to hindsight.

AEW kicked it off strong with Kyle Fletcher against the AEW International Champion. Unfortunately, the outcome was all but announced before it happened; it was a nice touch that Excalibur made it out like Orange Cassidy would lose. . That is because the Battle Royal for the International Championship was already announced for Double or nothing. Was nice to see Kyle Fletcher in action. Maybe while Mark Davis is recovering from injury we can see more of Kyle in AEW. Tony did mention that it wasn't tool long ago that Aussie Open was a double champion. The apron DDT before the beach break on the outside looked a little botched or at least not the quality I would prefer for this level of talent. I do like the stalling tactics that Orange Cassidy used while during the picture in picture. Fletcher has a really nice double tombstone piledriver. Taz talks up the dangerousness of the move since a regular piledriver broke his neck. That michinoku driver off the post was nice. Really shows the endurance of Orange Cassidy. Cassidy wins with a quick pin and is still the champion like foreshadowed at the begining of this paragraph. At the end Excalibur announced Ricky Starks as the second enterant to the Casino Battle Royal.
