AEW had its huge Dynamite Grand Slam event tonight in New York City and the crowd was electric.
The women took the main event spot Arthur Ashe Stadium and the match didn’t disappoint. Dr. Britt Baker had her fourth title defense as the title was on the line against Ruby Soho. This was only the second time that AEW has had the women in the main event of a Dynamite. The first also included Baker against Thunder Rosa in their highly praised Lights Out match.
Soho showed her no-quit attitude in this match as she kicked out of everything that Baker was throwing at her creating a series of near falls in the back half of the match. It would be Baker’s backup of Rebel and Jamie Hayter that would help make sure the title stayed around the Doctor’s waist.
Rebel distracted the referee as Soho took her out on the apron. While the official was busy with the fallen Rebel, Hayter was on the opposite ring apron and was able to knock Soho down. This gave Baker the opening to apply the LockJaw. Soho tapped out.
Friday’s Rampage Grandslam episode was taped after Dynamite and it will feature Anna Jay vs. Penelope Ford.
Brandi Rhodes returned as well during tonight’s event accompanying Cody to the ring.
