It's Wednesday night and you know what that means.

It's time for AEW Dynamite at Daily's Place in Jacksonville Florida, our announcers are Jim Ross, Excalibur and Tony Schiavone.  It's the second night of New Year's Smash, and we start with a video package of the rivalry and issues between Eddie Kingston and The Bastard Pac. Eddie, Butcher, Blade and Bunny are out first.  They then show the Winston attack on Penta and Pac backstage at the end of last week.  Eddie has a quick pre=-tape interview where he says he will send Pac back home.  

Next out is Pac on his own. 

Eddie Kingston vs Pac

Pac starts by tossing Eddie out of the ring and then leaping on him with a twisting Tope. Penta and Rey Fenix show to keep Butcher and Blade away.  Kingston goes back in the ring and Pac starts beating him down with kicks and blows in the corner.  Pac nails Eddie with a shotgun drop kick off the top rope and then glowers at him.  Pac keeps Eddie down with kicks.  Eddie is finally able to fight out of the corner and rolls Pac out of the ring.  

Bunny attacks Pac on the outside as Eddie distracts the ref.  Eddie goes out and hits Pac with a suplex, and the outside wrestlers face off, waiting to see if any of them will make a more.  Eddie rolls Pac in the ring and tries to cover.  Eddie is able to keep control with a neck hold on the mat, and then chops in the corner. Eddie keeps up the pressure on Pac until they trade blows in the middle of the ring.  Pac wins the exchange and hits Eddie with a suplex.

Both Pac and Eddie take time to regroup.  Pac is up first and nails Eddie with kicks to the chest.  Eddie leaps to his feet when Pac tries to come off the ropes, and nails Pac with kicks.  He hits Pac with a backdrop and covers Pac for a two count.  They take time to get up and when they do, Eddie is able to hit Pac with chops in the corner.  They battle in the corner, Eddie goes to the top and Pac nails him with an enziguiri type kick.  Pac climbs up with him and hits Eddie with a suplex from the top.  Pac covers for a two count.

Pac is up first and starts nailing Eddie with kicks as Eddie struggles to his feet.  Pac is able to toss him to the mat. As Pac goes for a move off the ropes, Eddie is able to get up and get a clothesline on Pac and covers for a two count.  Eddie sells his left arm/shoulder and when Eddie tries for a DDT, Pac holds onto the rope to block and then is able to take Eddie down.  Pac sets Eddie up for the Black Arrow, hits the move and covers him for the three count.

Your winner: Pac

Pac then locks on the brutalizer and as everyone comes into the ring, Pac releases it.  We have a standoff as Lance Archer rushes the ring.

Lance drives off Butch, Blade and Eddie.  Jack Roberts is with him and Archer and Pac go face to face and have words.

Lance goes to the back and we get a rundown of tonight's super packed show.

NO pause here as The Kentucky Gentleman, Chuck Taylor comes to the ring with Orange Cassidy.  We get commercials before Miro comes to the ring with Kip Sabian with a cardboard cutout of Trent and Penelope Ford.

Chuck Taylor vs Miro, and if Chuck loses, he has to be Miro's “Young Boy” until Kip Sabian's wedding.  

Chuck attacks Miro as soon as the bell rings, beating him down in the corner and then clotheslines him out  of the ring.  Chuck attacks Miro outside the ring and Miro stumbles back into the ring and Miro goes to the outside so Chuck can do a flip over the top one Miro outside the ring. The fight outside the ring continues with Chuck getting all of the offense.  Miro rolls back into the ring and Chuck climbs to the top.

Outside the ring, Kip attacks Cassidy and Chuck responds by coming down off the top and giving Kip a kick from the Apron.  Miro tries to capitalize and Chuck hits him with a knee to the jaw. Chuck runs and Miro for an attack, and Miro is able to get Chuck with a back body drop, and the tide has now turned.  

Miro beats Chuck down in the corner and hits another suplex on Chuck.  Miro nails Chuck with a leg lariat and then is able to get the thrust kick to Chuck's jaw.  Miro locks in the clutch, and Chuck tapps out

Your winner, Miro

Miro leans out of the ring and tells Orange Cassidy he's next.

Excalibur tells us that now Chuck will be Miro's Butler.

Backstage, Matt Hardy and Private Party are with Dasha.  Private Party starts to put over Matt until Marq Quen complains about the 30%.  Matt explains that they were nothing before him, and he is now in control of them.

Coming to the ring next is the Inner Circle.  We take a pause for the sing along to Jericho's entrance music and we go to commercial.

When we come back, Jericho says that  will be big for them and they will tell them their resolutions.

Jake Hager says Championships.

MJF says that he will continue the bonds with the inner circle and that fat people have to go.

Jericho says it is the year and he and MJF will win the AEW Tag Team championships.

Satana says that he and Ortiz were picked to the THE tag team in the Inner Circle.

Sammy calls Jericho a tag team slut.

MJF tries to calm things down and as people start to get angry, Jericho says they are top, sexy stars. Any of them can win the tag team championship;s.  He says just like Wardlkow and Hager blew steam off.  He says that next week, they will split into three teams to see who goes for the title.

And Yes, Sammy and Hager are a team.  Sammy Hager.

MJF says that they are the Inner Circle is better than you and you know it.

In the back, Alex Marvez is backstage with the Dark Order.  Evil Uno says that everything they do will be in Brodie Lee's name.  And next week, the Dark Order will team with Adam Page. Adam comes in, drink in hand and he is asked when he will join the Dark Order.  Page says next week, after the match, he will give his answer.

After commercials, we get a video recap of the issues between Brian Cage and Darby Allen.  Excalibur explains the issues between Taz and Darby between video clips.  

Backstage, Dasha is with Kenny Omega and The Young Bucks are there, and the band is back together. They agree to enter separately.  Kenny Omega gets his over-the-top entrance, this time on the heel side tunnel. Already in the ring are Griff Garrison, Brian Pillman Jr and Danny Limelight.

Don Callis has a mic and says he needs to be the ring announcer because it is a historic night as the band is back together. 

He then announces the Good Brothers, and backstage we see the Young Bucks are confused and disappointed.  

Kenny Omega and the Good Brothers vs Griff Garrison, Brian Pillman Jr and Danny Limelight

Omega and the Good Brothers rush their opponents and start beating them down both inside and outside the ring.  Omega is beating down Limelight in the ring, but Limelight is able to get in some limited offense on Omega before Gallows takes him out.  Pillman and Garrison come into the ring and clothesline Gallows over the top to the outside.

Limelight tags in Pillman and holds Omega's arm for Garrison to tag in and attack Omega's arm.  Limelight then tags in and gets a couple of moves in before being tossed to the ropes to take a kick to the back from Gallows.  Anderson tags in and keeps working over Limelight. 

We go to picture in picture and the beat down continues on the small screen. 

When we come back, Omega is slamming Limelight into the corner.  Limelight is able to walk to ropes and hits Omega with a Rana.  Limelight goes for the tag, but Omega stops him and hits a suplex.

Limelight walks the ropes and leaps and Anderson, who is able to turn it into a spine buster. Gallows and Aderson hit the Magic Killer as Omega guards the ring and Limelight takes the three count.

Your winner: Kenny Omega and the Good Brothers.

After the match ends, we get Jon Moxley's music and he's coming from the top of the stands.  He comes in the ring and goes at Omega and it doesn't take long for Omega and Good Brothers to take control.  Rey Fenix and Penta come in and attack to even up the odds.  The locker room clears to separate Omega and Mox.  The Young Bucks come into the ring to get between Mox and Omega.  

As they do, Penta and Phoenix attack the Bucks, and then the Good Brothers hit the ring.  As chaos continues in the ring, Omega and Don Callis leave the area.

We go to commercials.

Next up is The Waiting Room, introduced by Rebel who brings in Britt Baker.

Baker says that she will be interviewing Cody Rhodes about his time on The Go Big Show.  She tells a few bad jokes about Cody before bringing him onto the set. Baker and Rebel hold sparklers as they are contractually obligated to give Cody pyro.

She congratulates Cody on his going to be a father and says that the kid will have an action figure before she does.

Now THAT made me laugh.

Right before Cody says anything Baker introduces him to bring in Jake Cargill.  She heels Brandi and asks where her opponent is.  She also says when Brandi returns, she will beat her ass.  She shoves Cody away and Red Velvet comes onto the set.  Jade shoves Red and Red slaps her back.  IT'S A BRAWL ON THE SET!!  They get broken up, but Rebel gets tosses aside and Red attacks Jade again.  

As that fight gets broken up, we see video of Baker's attack on Thunder Rosa. This leads to a video of Thunder Rosa reminding her that they will be fighting soon on a big stage.  So, they will fight at Beach Break in February.  Baker screams it won't be happening and tells Tony that he said she didn't have to wrestle her.
