Tony Schiavone, Kenny Omega, and “The American Nightmare” Cody kicked off the show from the broadcast table, running down tonight’s card!

And the opening contest was “The American Nightmare” Cody vs. Jimmy Havoc!

Brandi Rhodes was the ring announcer tonight! She gave Cody a kiss as he entered the ring.

Havoc got Cody down with some leg sweeps, and an arm drag. Cody used his bulk and brawn to push Havoc into the corner, but Havoc rolled through for a near fall.

“I think the more this match becomes a mat-based contest, the more it favors Cody,” said Kenny Omega.

Cody hit a cutter off the ropes, and then went for a figure four leg-lock. Havoc poked Cody’s eyes to break the hold. Cody knocked Havoc outside and then blasted him with a tope suicida! They brawled on the outside, and this style favored Havoc.

Jimmy Havoc suplexed Cody into the turnbuckle, wrenching Cody’s legs on the ropes in the process. Havoc stomped on Cody’s hands and right elbow.

Cody went back to the entrance tunnel, ran down the ramp, and used a running lariat on Jimmy Havoc…”shades of the Great Muta!” said Tony Schiavone.

Cody attempted a cutter but was caught in an arm bar by Havoc! Cody rolled to the ropes, and Havoc took him down with a clothesline. Jimmy Havoc was laying in the shots in the corner, but Cody put the brakes on it. Down to the mat they crashed as Cody gave Havoc a reverse suplex! Cody spiked Havoc with two CrossRhodes for the victory via pin fall!

Jake “the Snake” Roberts had a message for Cody, played over the big screen. Cody watched from inside the ring.

“Lance Archer is chomping at the bit just to get in the ring with somebody from All Elite Wrestling,” Jake said. “Here I am, the best mind that wrestling’s ever had, yet not a phone call when All Elite Wrestling started last year. And not a phone call for Lance Archer, who was in Japan, romping and stomping. Because you guys were afraid. Bring your people. Bring Arn Anderson. Bring all of ‘em. Give us something to sign that says you, Cody, will meet us, one time. One time! That’s all I’m asking for Cody. What are you going to do? It’s up to you, Cody. Trust me.”

Cody joined Tony Schiavone at the broadcast table. Tony asked Cody about Jake’s challenge. “I’m aware of Lance Archer’s work in Japan, but he doesn’t have a body of work here. I don’t want to be a whiny babyface so Lance can debut next week. Spoiler!” replied Cody.

Le Champion Chris Jericho and Matt Hardy met face to face inside an AEW ring for the first time!

“Those arrogant S.O.B.’s got Matt Hardy to pledge his allegiance to The Elite last week. Come down to the ring Matt Hardy.”

Vanguard 1 flew down to the ring instead. Jericho said Vanguard 1 was a piece of trash. And then Jericho asked the drone to join The Inner Circle. Vanguard 1 flew away and it outraged Jericho.

Matt Hardy was standing at the top of the arena, and then in the blink of an eye, he was teleporting to different parts of the arena, until finally appearing ringside.

“Maker of pain, you knew I’d come!” said Matt Hardy.

“How did you do that?” asked Jericho.

“Because I am magic!” replied Matt Hardy.

“When you show up in AEW, you want to align yourself with me, not with the arrogant Elite,” said Jericho.

“No, I owe the Bucks of Youth a debt, because they helped resurrect me. And AEW represents freedom. It is my Arcadia. And I cannot allow you and The Inner Circle to run roughshod on AEW!” said Hardy.

“I’m gonna give you another shot to join The Inner Circle.”

“I am Damascus. And Damascus is over 3,000 years old,” said Hardy.

“Then you must be extremely wise. Outside you look very different. But inside you’re the same Matt Hardy that I’ve known for 25 years. Always living in the shadow. The shadow of your brother, the shadow of bad booking, and now the shadow of Le Champion. I’m gonna ask you one more time: are you Inner Circle or are you Elite?” asked Jericho.

“Delete! Delete! Delete! Delete!” shouted Matt Hardy.

Hardy continued: “Take off your sunglasses because I want you to take a good look at the entity that will delete you and The Inner Circle!”

Jericho slapped Hardy, but Hardy punched back, knocking Jericho to the mat!

Sammy G. jumped Hardy from behind. Kenny Omega and Cody ran down to help Matt Hardy, swinging steel chairs at Sammy and Le Champion!

Cody opened up the program standing alone in the ring with a microphone. The arena was dark and there was a spotlight shining on him.

“As human beings we need to stand together, and for many of us that means we have to stand at a distance. I refuse to live in a prison of fear. I feel alive and I hope you feel alive.

“Matt Jackson I know you are listening. I think you’re a tag team master. You need to put your anger aside. And I am tired of putting over “Hangman” Page. I need you to get over it—be the difference maker, be the reason we win at ‘Blood & Guts.’

“And then there’s Kenny Omega. We don’t always like each other, and that’s ok, this isn’t a wedding. It’s ‘Blood & Guts.’ I need you. But I need the real Kenny Omega—the “Best Bout Machine.” In short…I need the Elite to be…the Elite.”

Kenny Omega and Matt Jackson joined Cody in the ring.

Kenny said, “Here we are, just friends talking amongst friends. The entire world is falling part around us. If it’s up to me, I want to go out the way we came in, and that’s as the Elite!”

“I love the whole call to action for the Elite,” said Matt Jackson. “You saw what the Inner Circle did to my brother Nick. He’s out indefinitely. He couldn’t even get on a plane because of what they did to them. Where’s Adam Page?”

Adam Page walked out onto the ramp from the backstage area.

“We’re asking you,” said Matt Jackson, “will you stand with us?”

Page raised his glass and nodded in the affirmative.

Kenny looked into the camera and said, “Everybody needs some positivity so all we can do is give you the best possible show. So hit the lights. Hit the pyro. And let’s start DYNAMITE!”

The Inner Circle (“Big Hurt” Jake Hager, Santana and Ortiz, accompanied by “The Spanish God” Sammy Guevara) vs. The Elite (“The American Nightmare” Cody, accompanied by Arn Anderson, Matt Jackson, and “Hangman” Adam Page, with Kenny Omega at his side)—with the winning team earning the advantage at “Blood & Guts!”

Le Champion Chris Jericho joined the broadcast team for this match.

Santana blindsided Cody at the start of the bout. Cody countered with a powerslam! Matt and Cody utilized quick tags to cut the ring in half and work on Ortiz. Page ran in illegally with a boot to Ortiz.

Matt speared Santana, gaining a bit of revenge for his brother Nick Jackson, who wasn’t medically cleared to be at the event after last week’s brutal assault.

Page got the tag and followed through with a clothesline to Santana.

“You can’t go into a match with the Inner Circle with any animosity amongst your own team, and they’re too stupid to realize that,” said Jericho about the Elite.

Hager handed Cody over to Ortiz for the stalled suplex. Santana whipped Cody into the guardrail. Jackson had seen enough and began nailing Ortiz with stiff shots to the head!

“Cody has got to try to get one of his partners from the Elite into the match-up,” said Taz.

“I don’t like him but I respect him,” added Jericho.

Hager started the ground and pound on Cody. Hager put the pressure on Cody, who was trying to reach for his corner and a tag. Hager rammed Cody into the turnbuckles of the Inner Circle’s corner!

Cody rallied back with the Cross-Rhodes on Ortiz! Cody began crawling to his corner, but Hager tagged in and tried to stop him. Cody flipped Hager over the top rope!

“Hangman” was tagged in finally and cleaned house! He scooped up Santana with the fall away slam, and then went over the top rope onto Hager! Cody connected with a tope suicida onto Ortiz! Cody went after MJF at ringside, but Wardlow grabbed him by the throat. “Nightmare Family” head coach Arn Anderson hit Wardlow with his clipboard!

Back in the ring, Page and Jackson suplexed Hager! Jackson had Santana up and called for the IndyTaker to Page, but Jackson was rolled up after Page was pulled from the ring apron! The Inner Circle won the match and the advantage in “Blood & Guts”!

Chris Jericho took a microphone and celebrated with the Inner Circle at the top of the ramp, rubbing the victory into the face of the Elite. Jericho said at “Blood & Guts,” the Inner Circle would have the Elite outnumbered, since Nick Jackson was out indefinitely with an injury suffered at the hands of the Inner Circle.

There was a loud buzzing, and down came a drone, landing in the center of the ring!

Matt Jackson said he had called in a favor to help the Elite.

Piano music began to play, and there, standing in the balcony of the arena, was MATT HARDY!

“The American Nightmare” Cody, in his business attire, came down to the ring next!

“Cody has taken over the arena! They love this kid. This is genuine love of an athlete. Because they believe in him!” said Jim Ross.

“I don’t know if I want to broach the subject of what it means personally to lose to MJF. But I can tell you professionally what it means. But the only way I’d be comfortable with it at all is if MJF comes out here right now, looks me in the eye, and tells me he beat me fair and square,” said Cody.

Instead of MJF, it was Jake “the Snake” Roberts who came out to the ring!

“I hate the spoil the party. But damn, man, I got tired of listening to you cry. I never cried over one match in my career,” said Roberts. “Don’t you understand you got your ass kicked? MJF handed it right to you. But that’s not why I’m here.

“I’m not here to praise you. I’m here to slay you. The only reason I’m here is because the dark side will be coming to AEW, and once our roots have taken hold, it’ll be like a phoenix rising from the ashes.

“It’s been 20 years for me Cody, to get clean, to get right. By God, I’ve earned it! And if you think for one minute, that I’m going to be a nice boy and play right, my man you’ve got another thing coming. I will be on the outside of the ring when my client faces you, and you can bring that one-trick pony Arn Anderson with you. Oh Caesar, you see I’m not in AEW to take the whole pie—just your share, Cody.

“A wise man once told me, ‘You never ever turn your back on someone who you respect or who you’re afraid of…’” and Jake “the Snake” Roberts proceeded to turn away from Cody and exit the ring.

QT Marshall (accompanied by Brandi Rhodes and “The Natural” Dustin Rhodes) vs. the Inner Circle’s “Big Hurt” Jake Hager (with Santana & Ortiz at ringside)!

Hager quickly wrestled QT to the mat. QT tried jumping off the middle rope and Hager hit him with a running shoulder. Dustin Rhodes paced outside the ring. The fans chanted for QT as he tried to fight back with fists to Hager’s midsection.

Hager went for the Vader Bomb but QT got the boots up, and then followed up with some explosive right hands. QT attempted a swinging DDT but Hager tossed him across the ring and locked in the standing arm triangle to put QT to sleep!

Dustin Rhodes ran in to break up Hager’s hold. Santana, Ortiz and Hager triple-teamed Dustin Rhodes until Cody ran down to help Dustin and QT! Cody was taking care of business until he was hit from behind. Santana, Ortiz and Hager were hammering Cody but then Matt Jackson joined the fray to help!

Matt Jackson superkicked Ortiz and Santana! He stood toe-to-toe with Jake Hager, punching him down to one knee! Jackson ran into the ropes but Hager kneed him.

“Hangman” Page slowly strolled out with a drink in hand. “Hangman” put down his beer in the corner and started clobbering Santana and Ortiz, then used the Buckshot Lariat to pounce Hager.

“Hangman” Page gave a middle finger to Matt Jackson and then left to grab some beers from the ringside fans.

After months of tension, it was time for MJF (accompanied by Wardlow), against “The American Nightmare” Cody!

At ringside were Brandi Rhodes and Cody’s coach, “The Enforcer” Arn Anderson.

Cody hit an uppercut and then a cutter, but MJF kicked out at one. Cody got a full head of steam down the ramp and clotheslined MJF back into the ring, taking a page out of the Great Muta’s playbook! Cody hit an Alabama Slam on MJF, and then rained fists onto him. Wardlow pulled MJF out of the ring by the legs. Brandi threw a beer into Wardlow’s face, distracting him, giving Cody enough time for a tope suicida!

The momentum shifted when MJF gut wrenched Cody! MJF’s pacing became very methodical here, working over Cody with a double wristlock. MJF was targeting Cody’s shoulder, applying the Salt of the Earth arm bar. Cody crawled desperately and broke the hold by biting onto the bottom rope!

MJF, aware that Cody broke his toe during his recent cage match against Wardlow on DYNAMITE, removed Cody’s wrestling boot. MJF began to chomp down on Cody’s broken toe!

After being busted open by Cody, MJF hit the heatseaker. Wardlow held down Cody’s legs from the ring apron as MJF tried for the pin, but ref Paul Turner saw the interference. Brandi Rhodes jumped onto Wardlow but the giant caught her, barely budging. Cody demanded that Wardlow put Brandi down without hurting her. Wardlow obliged. Cody went for a thrust kick to Wardlow, but Wardlow moved. Cody inadvertently connected with Arn Anderson instead!

MJF planted Cody with the Double Cross-Rhodes! He removed Cody’s weight belt, but before he could whip him with it, the ref pulled it away. Cody grabbed the belt and gave MJF a taste of his own medicine! MJF began groveling at Cody’s feet, begging for forgiveness. MJF then spit in Cody’s face. Cody gave MJF two Cross-Rhodes, but MJF knocked out Cody using the Dynamite Diamond Ring for the pin fall victory!

Tonight’s main event—and for the first time ever in the history of the promotion—a steel cage match! It was “The American Nightmare” Cody vs. MJF’s bodyguard, Wardlow, in a steel cage!

The only way to win was by pin fall or submission. MJF accompanied Wardlow to the ring. Cody was out next, joined by Arn Anderson and Brandi Rhodes.

A high kick from Cody found its mark across Wardlow’s face, but Wardlow didn’t budge. He posed in front of Cody, trying to intimidate him. Cody dropped down to the mat and connected with an uppercut to Wardlow. Cody followed up with a Disaster Kick, but even this couldn’t take Wardlow off his feet.

Wardlow used a clothesline on Cody, and then tossed him like a lawn dart into the steel cage! MJF was barking orders at Wardlow from ringside. Wardlow power bombed Cody against the cage! He booted Cody, and began using the cage against Cody’s forehead, which was busted wide open.

“Wardlow is manhandling Cody. Cody is losing a lot of blood!” said Jim Ross.

Cody found the will to pick Wardlow off his feet and pancake him. Cody used a cutter on Wardlow! Cody was laying in shots to the head of Wardlow, but Wardlow used a low blow to halt Cody’s momentum.

Wardlow picked Cody up on his shoulders and used a spinning F-10 on Cody! Wardlow, arrogantly, did not attempt to go for the cover. Wardlow started raking Cody’s forehead across the steel cage. Then Cody was knocked headfirst against the cage door, popping it open with the momentum. Cody’s head was positioned just through the cage door, and Arn Anderson grabbed the door before MJF could slam it on Cody’s head. Instead, Arn swung the cage door in the other direction, nailing MJF with it!

Wardlow tried for a power bomb but Cody escaped. Cody rallied back and hit the monster with three clotheslines. Cody used a powerslam on Wardlow for a near fall. Cody climbed to the top rope but Wardlow caught him with a right hand, and then military pressed Cody against the steel cage! Wardlow hit a senton onto Cody for a two count!

“That was amazing for a man that size,” said Tony Schiavone.

MJF tossed the “DYNAMITE diamond ring” through the cage to Wardlow, but Cody countered with a low blow to Wardlow. MJF began to climb the cage from the outside, but Brandi Rhodes stopped him in his tracks by swinging a folding chair at MJF. Upset with Cody’s wife, MJF angrily approached Brandi. “Nightmare Family” head coach Arn Anderson stepped in and whipped MJF over the ringside barricade!

Cody connected with an uppercut and then the CrossRhodes for a two count onto Wardlow! Cody looked up, almost in a trance-like state, and scaled the cage. Cody climbed all the way to the top and hit a moonsault off the steel cage onto Wardlow for the three count! As a result of his victory, “the American Nightmare” Cody will be facing MJF at AEW REVOLUTION!

Be sure to watch next week live on February 26th, as AEW DYNAMITE will be broadcasting on TNT from the Silverstein Eye Centers Arena in Kansas City, MO! It’ll be the final show prior to the AEW REVOLUTION pay-per-view, being held on February 29th from Chicago!

MJF’s music started to play, and out strolled MJF with Wardlow. It was time for Cody’s ten lashes!

“The American Nightmare” Cody’s theme song played throughout the arena, and Cody came out to honor the stipulation that he accepted.

“A vicious and cruel woodshed awaits…he will keep his word,” said Jim Ross, as Cody took off his jacket and entered the ring. Cody proceeded to loosen his tie, and then removed his tie and shirt.

“Hold on, hold on, hold on. I don’t know, this is a really nice belt. Far too nice to touch you!” said MJF, as he pointed down at his leather belt. “I want your belt. Now!”

Cody tossed his belt to MJF and turned around, ready to receive his lashes. MJF was all smiles.

“It’s old school, man,” commented Jim Ross.

The Butcher and the Blade, Kip Sabian, and Sammy G. came out on the top of the ramp to witness the lashing.

Cody took two stiff lashes, and then a third, grimacing in pain. The third was enough to cause Cody to lunge forward and grab the ring ropes. Arn Anderson came down to the ring, and MJF said, “You can’t help him now, old man!”

The welts began popping up on Cody’s back. The fourth time MJF hit him with the belt caused Cody to drop to his knees, but Cody stood up for another.

Cody’s brother, Dustin Rhodes, ran down to the ring. Dustin offered to take the remaining lashes. “Unfortunately this is not how it works,” said MJF. “Get out of my ring and watch with everybody else,” he continued.

Two quick ones to the spine, and Cody was back on the mat, clenching his teeth. Now the Young Bucks were out, trying to console their friend. Cody rolled out of the ring, and the Bucks and Dustin Rhodes offered him words of encouragement. “You’re almost there,” said Dustin.

Cody was digging deep, gritting his teeth, and he manned up again in the center of the ring. He had three more to go. MJF hit him with the strap again, and Cody fell again. “Stay down!” screamed MJF.

Cody gave the middle finger to MJF. This time, Wardlow offered his services, and MJF handed the leather belt to Wardlow. A thunderous crack echoed throughout the arena as Wardlow whipped Cody, who collapsed to his feet, his back bleeding, covered in welts.

Brandi Rhodes, Cody’s wife, came down to the ring. “You’ve got one more. You can do this. I love you so much,” she said, as she grabbed his hand through the ring ropes. Cody turned around for number ten and got one right in the chest, but Cody did not quit! MJF finished it off with a low blow to Cody, before he and Wardlow retreated through the crowd!

“Superbad” Kip Sabian (accompanied by Penelope Ford) vs. “The American Nightmare” Cody (with Arn Anderson, the head coach of “The Nightmare Family”).

Sabian came straight out the gates with a shotgun dropkick, and then a gut buster on Cody! A pump kick from Cody sent Sabian out of the ring. The arena was chanting, “Let’s go Cody!” The two men began trading strikes outside of the ring, with Cody accidentally knocking down Penelope Ford.

Cody picked up Penelope Ford and apologized profusely, as she was motionless in his arms. Sabian took advantage of the opportunity, kicking Cody right in the mush. Penelope had been playing possum the entire time!

Back in the ring, Cody was able to get the upper hand with a running clothesline and a power slam! Cody felt the adrenaline from the crowd and hit a disaster kick on Kip Sabian. Before the referee could count the pin, Penelope Ford tossed her boot into the ring. The ref accused Arn Anderson of throwing the boot. Arn was offended by this, and confronted the AEW official inside the ring, who then booted Arn Anderson from the match.

While Cody was accessing the situation, Ford, from out of nowhere, used a huracarana on him. Sabian followed up with a dive onto “The American Nightmare!” Penelope and Sabian, the “Superbad” power couple, went to lock lips in celebration, but unbeknownst to them, the “Badboy” Joey Janela was front row. He popped up and flipped them off!

As Sabian was distracted by Janela, out came Cody with a tope suicida! “The American Nightmare” tried to follow up but was hung out to dry as Sabian planted him onto the mat. Both men battled it out on the top turnbuckle. Sabian was knocked down from a head butt, but quickly jumped back up like a cat onto the top rope and threw Cody down. Sabian executed his Deathly Hollow’s finisher, but it wasn’t enough to stop Cody! There was an intense “Cody Cutter,” and then Cody used three consecutive trips down the CrossRhodes for the victory!

“The American Nightmare” Cody’s music blasted! Cody confidently strolled down to the ring, and MJF freaked out.

Cody entered the ring and got right in MJF’s face. “Stop right there,” said MJF. “There’s a reason Wardlow isn’t here. You can’t touch me, Cody, can you? No matter what I say, no matter what I do, you can’t lay a finger on me.” MJF feigned giving the microphone to Cody, and as Cody went for it, MJF dropped it to the mat.

“I can’t touch you, Max, but they can.” Max turned around on the ramp and was greeted by stereo superkicks from the Young Bucks. The Bucks proceeded to toss MJF right into the pool!

“The American Nightmare” Cody came out next to give his response to MJF’s match stipulations.

“Double A, Arn Anderson was right, when he said the audience wants this match,” Cody said. “MJF named his price for this match, and it’s rather expensive.”

Regarding the potential of a steel cage match against Wardlow, Cody said: “I think Max is afraid that the audience might come to the conclusion that perhaps Wardlow shouldn’t be carrying MJF’s bags but perhaps, MJF should be carrying Wardlow’s.”

Regarding the stipulation that he cannot touch Max until REVOLUTION, Cody said: “I don’t need to touch you, MJF. I live rent free inside that head. I think everybody knows what you are doing—you are stalling!”

“When it comes to your stipulation of the steel cage…I accept. When it comes to not touching you until REVOLUTION? I accept. And when it comes to ten lashes live on DYNAMITE? I accept. And I know what it means to have this match at REVOLUTION: it means that I have failed as a mentor, but perhaps I can teach you one final lesson. At REVOLUTION I am going to give you your own g—damn scar!”

ony Schiavone joined Cody, Dustin Rhodes, and Arn Anderson in the ring.

“What do you say to all the challenges that MJF has put in front of you, Cody?” asked Schiavone.

Arn Anderson pulled away the microphone from Schiavone. “Let me interrupt,” said the Enforcer. “Somebody died and made MJF God and I don’t know about it? One thing I know for sure. We’re going to talk about it this week and we’ll get back to you.”
