AEW Dynamite 7/27/22 Sees New Champion Crowned!
…FTW Title Match!
“Absolute” Ricky Starks (c.) vs. Danhausen!
Tony Schiavone joined the broadcast booth.
Starks booted Danhausen in the head. Danhausen fired back with a kick to Starks’ teeth. Starks charged at Danhausen but Danhausen dodged Ricky. Ricky’s own momentum carried him into the corner, ramming his neck in the buckles. Danhausen cradled Ricky for a near fall. Starks was holding his tweaked neck. Starks sliced Danhausen in half with a spear and pinned Danhausen!
“That was smart of Ricky to do that,” said Taz.
Starks: “Very nice, very evil, but you’re not absolute. And just like last week, I’ve still got a little bit left in the tank. So let’s bring out another challenger, and I’m for real this time.”
HOOK answered the challenge!
“I think business is about to pick up,” said Jim Ross.
“Not smart Ricky,” said Taz.
HOOK found his mark with body shots and a headbutt to Starks. HOOK hurled Starks with a pump handle suplex!
Starks countered the El Camino with a spear! HOOK got Starks back with the RedRum and Starks tapped out!
“We’ve got a new champion! It’s time for HOOK!” said Jim Ross.
Starks and HOOK fist bumped after the match, showing mutual respect.
Tony Schiavone was in the ring to interview a distraught Ricky Starks.
Starks: “I’m not stranger to losing. And I’m okay with that. But I was given that title when people thought it was a noose and I turned it into a tie. Nobody back there can say anything. I did it. I exceeded all expectations. There are people back there who tell me to be patient. My time is right now! I don’t want people to say I had a string a bad luck. It was just a string a bad timing. And that’s why me and Hobbs—”
Powerhouse Hobbs clotheslined Starks from behind and followed up with a spinebuster!
“Did you see how the neck of Starks whiplashed? That was grotesque,” said Excalibur…
Taz is proud of his son.
Who automatically has new merch ready.
A lot going on for the “Team Taz” faction?!
