The penultimate episode of Dynamite for this year took place from the Daily’s Place with a Holiday Bash theme. The show was taped last week and most of the show was already out in the open through spoilers.
The Inner Circle def. Top Flight
The young superstars faced off against Chris Jericho and MJF, who used their heel instincts to the fullest during the match. Top Flight gave a top fight, but an interference by Jake Hager towards the end allowed MJF to hit the Heat Seeker for the win.
Post-match, an angry Jake Hager called out Wardlow and challenged him to a match next week.
Interview: Tony Schiavone interviewed Sting, who did a Dusty Rhodes impression before being interrupted by Team Taz. They were about to attack Sting before Darby Allin made the save. Team Taz retreated as Sting and Allin had a staredown.
Backstage: MJF walked up to Santana and gave him emotional support after Santana’s grandfather passed away recently.
The Jungle Express def. The Dark Order
The heels dominated Jungle Boy for most of the match, before Luchasaurus entered and cleaned house. A powerbomb combo from the dino and JB got the win for them.
Post-match, Schiavone tried to interview the winners but Tully Blanchard and FTR interrupted on the big screen and mocked the Jungle Express before their match in two weeks’ time.
Interview: Kenny Omega and Don Callis were interviewed at the hotel and they had harsh words for Tony Khan and Fenix. Omega said Fenix is a choker who has lost all the title opportunities in recent times.
PAC def. The Butcher
PAC used his speed to evade the Butcher, but the big size of Butcher proved too much. The finish saw Lance Archer run out to confront Eddie Kingston, and the distraction allowed PAC to hit a roundhouse kick for the win.
Post-match, Archer and PAC once again exchanged words on who gets a piece of Kingston.
Wedding Date Announcement
Kip Sabian, Penelope Ford and Miro joined Schiavone for a segment, which saw Sabian announce the wedding data as February 3, on the Beach Break special of Dynamite.

Schiavone interviewed Spears who called himself the best in the world. Spears was infuriated by Schiavone’s remarks and said he will return to AEW when he feels like.
Hikaru Shida def. Alex Garcia
Shida was attacked backstage by Abadon prior to the match. Abadon showed up at ringside during the match, and was attacked by the champion. Shida barely made the 10-count and hit the Falcon Arrow on Garcia for the win.
