Jade Cargill Retains, Athena Strikes On AEW Dynamite

AEW Dynamite: Quake by the Lake gave us a clearer picture of where things are headed for AEW All Out.

Early on in the second hour–but still in the slot before the main event–new AEW women’s coach Madison Rayne made her Dynamite in-ring debut in a TBS Championship match against Jade Cargill. The bout went nearly ten minutes and saw slight interference from Kiera Hogan toward the end. Ultimately, Cargill put Rayne away with Jaded for the three-count. Cargill is now 36-0, but her next challenger awaits.

Immediately after the bout, Athena popped up behind the champ and sent her flying out of the ring without the title in hand. She was hiding as one of the Baddies next to Leila Grey in the front row. Athena raised the title up to leave no doubt in mind she will be one of Cargill’s next challengers.

Backstage, Tony Schiavone announced Kris Statlander is injured, which means Toni Storm is once again the number one contender for Thunder Rosa’s AEW Women’s World Championship. Rosa said she’ll be watching Storm, who will go one-on-one with KiLynn King on the August 17 edition of AEW Dynamite.

Tay Melo (fka Tay Conti) will return to action this Friday when she and Sammy Guevara defend the AAA World Mixed Tag Team Championship against Dante Martin and Skye Blue on AEW Rampage.

Julia Hart appeared in a backstage segment with Miro which may be teasing CJ Perry (Lana) coming to AEW.

What did you think of this week’s AEW Dynamite? Is Athena going to be the one to dethrone Jade Cargill? Sound off in the comments below!
