We’re back once again with this week’s AEW Dynamite Weekly Review for 5/13/20. A main event of Chris Daniels vs Brodie Lee, a Women’s Division Four Way and an in-ring promo to begin the show…
Lance Archer starts off this week’s episode of Dynamite by attacking a member of the AEW roster. Jake grabs the mic and begins to remind everyone that anyone coming into the ring is entering no man’s land. He carries on and says “a woman is great at home and occasionally a woman can keep him warm”. The focus on the promo then shifts as Jake addresses Cody. Lance Archer’s handler wants to remind Cody it’s time to pay the piper. Cody revs the engine of his pick up truck to drown out Jake. Cody brawls with Lance before being thrown through the timekeeper’s table. Archer stalks Cody, but Cody ducks a clothesline and gets some shots in. Lance and Cody would continue to brawl around the ringside area before Cody throws a chair at Archer. Cody escapes the Blackout and Archer counters the Cutter. Jake and Lance back down.
The commentary team then have a moment to run down the card and preview tonight’s main event of Chris Daniels vs Brodie Lee. Jim Ross begins to speculate on whether Jon Moxley will get involved after his altercation with Brodi Lee on last week’s Dynamite. We are then given a video look through at AEW’s tag team division.
