PARKS’S AEW DYNAMITE REPORT
MAY 28, 2021
JACKSONVILLE, FLA. AT DAILY’S PLACE
AIRED ON TNT NETWORK

Commentators: Jim Ross, Tony Schiavone, Excalibur

Ring Announcer: Justin Roberts


[HOUR ONE]

-After the Dynamite open aired, fireworks shot off inside Daily’s Place. They showed a wide shot of a larger than usual gathering of fans inside the arena.

(1) DARBY ALLIN (w/Sting) vs. CEZAR BONONI (w/Ryan Nemeth, Peter Avalon, JD Drake)

Bononi didn’t get an entrance. Allin’s ribs were taped and Bononi went after them early. The set-up was different with the hard camera not directly across from the entrance as usual. Bononi picked Allin up in a slam and tossed him across the ring twice. The crowd was solidly behind Allin. The former TNT champ eventually came back with a sleeper. Soon after, Darby hit the coffin drop for the victory.

WINNER: Allin in 4:19.

(Parks’s Analysis: Not a surprise that AEW would want to lead with arguably its most popular star in the first match back in front of a big live crowd. Doesn’t hurt that it and what followed also hyped up a match at Sunday’s PPV and one later on in tonight’s show.)

-After the match, Allin called out Scorpio Sky and Ethan Page, wanting to fight them right then. Sky and Page came out and declined the offer. Sky said that at Double or Nothing, it would be the end of one legend (Sting) and the beginning of two more. Bononi and his entourage attacked Allin and Sting from behind, and Sky and Page came to the ring to take advantage. Before the heels could Pillmanize Sting’s ankle, Dark Order came out to run them off.  The cameras lingered on Dark Order, Sting, and Allin being friendly with each other afterward.

-The announcers hyped what’s still to come tonight: Miro vs. Dante Martin for the TNT Title, an Inner Circle celebration hosted by Eric Bischoff, Dark Order vs. Sky & Page, Orange Cassidy answers Kenny Omega’s proposition, Joey Janela vs. Adam Page, KiLynn King vs. Jade Cargill, and a ceremony to honor Hikaru Shida’s one-year title reign. Next, the weigh-in of Cody Rhodes and Anthony Ogogo.

-Justin Roberts introduced the host for tonight’s weigh-in, Paul Wight.  [c]

-Wight was in the ring for the weigh-in. There was a scale in the ring and the British and American flags in the backdrop near the announcers. There was only one entrance as opposed to the usual two. Ogogo came out with The Factory, while Q.T. Marshall did mic work. Wight wasn’t having Marshall’s nonsense. Cody came out with The Nightmare Family, including his wife and sister. He was introduced as “The American Dream Cody Rhodes.”

Cody weighed in first. Wight seemed to struggle balancing the scale. Rhodes weighed in at 218 pounds. Fireworks continued to shoot off in the background as Ogogo readied to climb onto the scale. “USA” chants from the crowd greeted him. Ogogo’s weight: 219 pounds. Wight was wrapping things up when Marshall interrupted. He clarified that Ogogo being heavier than Cody meant he would win at Double or Nothing. Ogogo posed on the turnbuckle to boos. Rhodes went to the turnbuckles himself and drew applause from the audience. Marshall had Ogogo pose on the other set of turnbuckles. Same result. The Factory left the ring while Cody took the mic. He thanked Wight and told people to enjoy the rest of the show.

(Parks’s Analysis: Anti-climactic in some ways when you’re accustomed to how these segments usually end up. But it’s wise every once in a while to turn the cliche on its head and not deliver the obvious result. If you were looking for one last hard sell for Ogogo vs. Rhodes to make up for the somewhat shaky build to this point, you didn’t get it here.)

-A video package aired on Sunday’s Stadium Stampede match, with comments from the participants and talking heads like Jim Ross and Wight.

-They went to a brawl backstage between Powerhouse Hobbs and Christian Cage. Excalibur noted they’re part of the Casino Battle Royal on Sunday. Referees and coaches tried to break it up, but not before Christian speared Hobbs into a set of boxes.

(2) “HANGMAN” ADAM PAGE vs. “THE BAD BOY” JOEY JANELA (w/Sonny Kiss)

Taz was on commentary for this one. Janela offered a clean break and a handshake in the corner, but instead chopped Page. Janela strutted but turned around into a chop from Page that knocked Janela to the mat. Outside the ring, Page delivered a fall-away slam to Janela. Janela took back over on offense inside the ring. They went to a picture-in-picture break at 3:46 of the match. [c/ss]

Back at 6:18 with the men fighting on the apron. Page connected on a springboard clothesline to knock Janela to the floor, then followed with a cross-body. Janela tried a roll-up while holding the trunks, to no avail. Page’s mouth was bleeding. Janela came off the top with an elbowdrop for a near-fall. Page also appeared to be bleeding from his hairline as he hit the Buckshot lariat for the win. The blood was gushing pretty good.

WINNER: Page in 9:49.

-After the match, Taz brought Brian Cage out. Page said he knows how this works and was expecting an attack from the rest of Team Taz as well. Hook was there ready to jump. Page said he expected more from Cage. He asked Cage if Cage needed help from the others to beat him. Page told him to leave the others out of it on Sunday and face him like a man. Cage agreed to face Page one-on-one.

(Parks’s Analysis: The match was a good, hard-fought win for Page. The hardway blood drawn by Page added to the post-match segment. Page’s promo was short but really well-delivered.)

-Eddie Kingston and Jon Moxley were cutting a promo looking ready to bury the Young Bucks shoes that they took last week. Moxley referred to the Bucks as “Rod and Todd Flanders.” Then the screen went dark and to break. [c]

-They picked back up with the Kingston and Moxley promo from the beginning. Kingston had a shovel. Mox said he wanted and needed the tag belts. Kingston said the Bucks quit on the fans and the boys in the back. He said he and Mox speak for the underdogs and joked about the two of them becoming EVPs in place of the Bucks after the tag champs lose on Sunday.

-Tony Schiavone was in the ring. He called out Orange Cassidy for his response to Kenny Omega, but instead, Pac came out. He booted Schiavone from the ring. Pac said Cassidy is irrelevant this Sunday. He also called Omega pathetic. Don Callis appeared on the video screen to address Pac. He called Pac “a dangerous person.” He said he and Omega want nothing to do with Pac. Omega tried to attack Pac from behind, but Pac saw it coming. He went on the offensive until Karl Anderson & Doc Gallows came out to attack. Fenix and Penta then ran down to even the odds, which caused Anderson and Gallows to high-tail it. That left Omega in the ring with Pac. Omega was about to deliver the One-Winged Angel when Cassidy came out accompanied by Trent, Chuck Taylor, and Kris Statlander.

Cassidy entered the ring and took out a document. It said “For Kenny,” but initially had “For Kevin,” but “Kevin” was crossed out. Inside the envelope was the contract offered by Callis and Omega last week, but shredded. Cassidy delivered the Orange Punch to Omega. Cassidy bent down to pick up the AEW Title, but Pac put his foot on the belt. Pac and Cassidy went at it with Cassidy hitting the Orange Punch to him, too. Cassidy did pick up the title and posed with it.

(Parks’s Analysis: If tonight’s crowd is any indication, the fans will at least be into the AEW Title match and Cassidy in particular on Sunday, even if the match feels like a relatively weak AEW PPV title defense for Omega.) [c]

[HOUR TWO]

-Earlier in the day, Schiavone caught up with Jade Cargill. Schiavone asked about Cargill’s match tonight with KiLynn King. Matt Hardy interrupted and pitched himself to be Cargill’s manager. Mark Sterling came in and told Hardy that Cargill already chose him. Sterling said he only gets paid when Cargill wins. A frustrated Hardy stomped off.

(3) JADE CARGILL (w/Mark Sterling) vs. KiLYNN KING

Excalibur brought up King’s success on Dark and Dark: Elevation. They began with a test of strength. Cargill got the better of the exchange. Cargill caught a cross-body attempt and slammed King. They cut to a split-screen break at 1:31 of the match [c/ss]

Back live at 4:08 with Cargill in control. She worked over King outside the ring. After King missed a wild punch, Cargill picked her up and connected on Beth Phoenix’s Glam Slam for the win.

WINNER: Cargill in 5:29.

(Parks’s Analysis: On a Dynamite show loaded with hype for one of AEW’s signature PPV events, it should tell you something about how they view Cargill to give her time even though she’s not on Sunday’s card.)

-Lance Archer interrupted Jake Roberts cutting a promo for him at some undisclosed location. Archer said Miro has been pissing him off.

(4) DANTE MARTIN vs. MIRO – TNT Title Match

Miro clobbered Martin in the corner and suplexed him out of it. Miro missed a splash, then a corner charge. Martin used his speed to his advantage. Springboard moonsault garnered him a one-count. Springboard shotgun dropkick but still only a one-count. Miro turned the tide with a brainbuster and thrust kick. He locked in the Game Over submission for the win.

WINNER: Miro via submission in 3:07.

-After the match, Roberts came out with a mic while Archer paced around him. Roberts compared Miro to the Big Bad Wolf but said he and Archer don’t play fairy tales. Miro’s mic wasn’t working at first. He called Roberts an old fart. Miro egged Archer on. Roberts let him go so Archer charged the ring. He grabbed Miro with a choke but Miro broke free. A big boot by Archer put Miro down as a gaggle of referees tried to intervene.

(Parks’s Analysis: It was good to see Miro get a decisive win; sometimes AEW opts for a longer 50/50 style match when just putting someone over in a one-sided affair will do. I don’t think the way it unfolded negatively affects Martin’s standing either.) [c]

-Schiavone and referee Bryce Remsburg (who held a title) were in the ring. Schiavone welcomed Hikaru Shida, who has been champion now for 377 days. Shida was presented a brand new title belt. Schiavone put it around her waist. Shida took the mic and said there were no fans when she won the title, but now there are. She said she’s proud to share the moment with the fans. Dr. Britt Baker’s music interrupted and she walked out.

Baker laid on the compliments at first, but said she wanted to take something back she said to JR in an interview two weeks ago. Baker said she’ll not only be the face of the women’s division, but the face of a whole new era when she wins the title. She said a previous era was about 3:16, but this era will be about DMD.

(Parks’s Analysis: Shida is a nice, wholesome babyface, but it sure felt like Baker could get quite a few cheers on Sunday.)

-Sammy Guevara was in the crowd to deliver a message with his cue cards as they went to a split-screen break. His message was aimed at Shawn Spears in preparation for the Stadium Stampede match. [c/ss]

(5) SCORPIO SKY & “ALL EGO” ETHAN PAGE vs. EVIL UNO & STU GRAYSON (w/Dark Order)

The first big move of the match came 1:30 in when Grayson hit a springboard DDT on the apron to Sky. Page needed a time out after a double-team move from the Dark Order. Grayson hit a senton onto Page on the apron. Sky tripped up Grayson, however, to take over on offense. They cut to a spilt-screen break at 2:55 of the match. [c/ss]

They returned from break at the 5:55 mark of the bout. Grayson was desperate to make a tag, and he did so. Uno broke out a hurricanrana. Grayson hit a 450 splash on Page while Uno cannonballed onto Sky in the same corner. A “this is awesome” chant broke out. Page hit Ego’s Edge on Uno while Sky had Grayson in a heel-hook, and Page notched the three-count.

WINNERS: Page and Sky in 8:33.

-Page promised the same thing would happen Sunday, but Allin came out to interrupt with an army of folks in Sting masks. Allin charged at Page while Sky fought off the Stingers…until he came to the actual Sting without at first realizing it. Sky scampered out of the ring, as did Page.

(Parks’s Analysis: I like Scorpio Sky and I like Ethan Page, but I don’t know how much I like them together. They’re talented, so I’m willing to give it time. Too many matches have followed the same beat tonight of the finish, then mic work and an interruption after the match.)

-The announcers plugged the Double or Nothing card, including the Buy-In match of Serena Deeb vs. Riho for the NWA Women’s World Title.

-They also advertised Dynamite for next Friday, June 4, again at 10pm EST.

-Eric Bischoff came out as the guest emcee for the final segment. [c]

-The Inner Circle celebration began with about 12 minutes left in the show. Bischoff reminisced about unleashing the NWO on the world 25 years ago. He introduced the Inner Circle. Chris Jericho said it’s great to be in front of fans again and said Bischoff is one of those the Circle has made amends with recently. He thanked Bischoff for the role he played in Jericho’s career. Bischoff showed a video package celebrating the Inner Circle with clips of some of the big moments of which the group has been a part.

Santana talked about the group leading AEW through the pandemic. He said if this is their last dance, he wouldn’t have it any other way. Jake Hager said the journey is more important than the destination, so he wanted to remember the struggles that should be celebrated. Guevara said when he came to AEW he was wearing a panda head and now he’s part of the greatest faction in pro wrestling. Jericho said when he was asked to put together a group, he wasn’t sure because he doesn’t play well with others, but this group just felt right.

He said Stadium Stampede will be a war and a battle. He told the others that he loved them, then they came in for a group hug. MJF appeared on the video board and mockingly cried at the proceedings. MJF and Wardlow were at the stadium and had Dean Malenko in a bad way. The Inner Circle sprinted out of the ring and toward the field. They were attacked by the Pinnacle before they reached the field. Eventually they did get to the field where Pinnacle held serve. Santana and Ortiz were pile-driven through tables by FTR. Jericho and Guevara appeared to be pile-driven through chairs on the field, too, but the camera didn’t get a great view of it. MJF gave the Pinnacle’s catchphrase as the group stood together to end the show.

(Parks’s Analysis: Pinnacle had to get one over on the Inner Circle heading into Sunday, and they did just that. It’ll be interesting to see if any of the babyfaces will be selling injuries they suffered tonight. Oh, and I hope Dean Malenko is okay.)

Final Thoughts: A decent enough show that followed a certain formula. Dynamite tonight wasn’t about knocking your socks off with in-ring action as much as it was selling people on Double or Nothing. Not every episode can have (or needs to have) ****+ matches sprinkled in. If you were on the fence about the PPV, I’m not sure this show sold you on any particular match, except maybe Stadium Stampede. Perhaps for some, the whole is bigger than the sum of the parts. It should go without saying, but I’ll say it anyway: Having an audience the size AEW did tonight makes so much of a difference in the viewing experience.

Revealed: how Sidney Powell could be disbarred for lying in court for Trump | US elections 2020

Published

on

Sidney Powell, the former lawyer for Donald Trump who filed lawsuits across America for the former president, hoping to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election, has on several occasions represented to federal courts that people were co-counsel or plaintiffs in her cases without seeking their permission to do so, the Guardian has learned.

Some of these individuals say that they only found out that Powell had named them once the cases were already filed.

During this same period of time, Powell also named several other lawyers – with their permission in those instances – as co-counsel in her election-related cases, despite the fact that they played virtually no role whatsoever in bringing or litigating those cases.

Both Powell’s naming of other people as plaintiffs or co-counsel without their consent and representing that other attorneys were central to her cases when, in fact, their roles were nominal or nonexistent, constitute serious potential violations of the American Bar Association model rules for professional conduct, top legal ethicists told the Guardian.

Powell’s misrepresentations to the courts in those particular instances often aided fundraising for her nonprofit, Defending the Republic. Powell had told prospective donors that the attorneys were integral members of an “elite strike force” who had played outsized roles in her cases – when in fact they were barely involved if at all.

Powell did not respond to multiple requests for comment via phone, email, and over social media.

The State Bar of Texas is already investigating Powell for making other allegedly false and misleading statements to federal courts by propagating increasingly implausible conspiracy theories to federal courts that Joe Biden’s election as president of the United States was illegitimate.

The Texas bar held its first closed-door hearing regarding the allegations about Powell on 4 November. Investigations by state bar associations are ordinarily conducted behind closed doors and thus largely opaque to the public.

A federal grand jury has also been separately investigating Powell, Defending the Republic, as well as a political action committee that goes by the same name, for fundraising fraud, according to records reviewed by the Guardian.

Among those who have alleged that Powell falsely named them as co-counsel is attorney Linn Wood, who brought and litigated with Powell many of her lawsuits attempting to overturn the results of the election with her, including in the hotly contested state of Michigan.

The Michigan case was a futile attempt by Powell to erase Joe Biden’s victory in that state and name Trump as the winner. On 25 August, federal district court Judge Linda Parker, of Michigan, sanctioned Powell and nine other attorneys who worked with her for having engaged in “a historic and profound abuse of the judicial process” in bringing the case in the first place. Powell’s claims of election fraud, Parker asserted, had no basis in law and were solely based on “speculation, conjecture, and unwarranted suspicion”.

Parker further concluded that the conduct of Powell, Wood, and the eight other attorneys who they worked with, warranted a “referral for investigation and possible suspension or disbarment to the appropriate disciplinary authority for each state … in which each attorney is admitted”.

Wood told the court in the Michigan case that Powell had wrongly named him as one of her co-counsel in the Michigan case. During a hearing in the case to determine whether to sanction Wood, his defense largely rested on his claim that he had not been involved in the case at all. Powell, Wood told the court, had put his name on the lawsuit without her even telling him.

Wood said: “I do not specifically recall being asked about the Michigan complaint … In this case obviously my name was included. My experience or my skills apparently were never needed, so I didn’t have any involvement with it.”

Wood’s attorney, Paul Stablein, was also categorical in asserting that his client had nothing to do with the case, telling the Guardian in an interview: “He didn’t draft the complaint. He didn’t sign it. He did not authorize anyone to put his name on it.”

Powell has denied she would have ever named Wood as a co-counsel without Wood’s permission.

But other people have since come forward to say that Powell has said that they were named as plaintiffs or lawyers in her election-related cases without their permission.

In a Wisconsin voting case, a former Republican candidate for Congress, Derrick Van Orden, said he only learned after the fact that he had been named as a plaintiff in one of Powell’s cases.

“I learned through social media today that my name was included in a lawsuit without my permission,” Van Orden said in a statement he posted on Twitter, “To be clear, I am not involved in the lawsuit seeking to overturn the election in Wisconsin.”

Jason Shepherd, the Republican chairman of Georgia’s Cobb county, was similarly listed as a plaintiff in a Georgia election case without his approval.

In a 26 November 2020 statement, Shepherd said he had been talking to an associate of Powell’s prior to the case’s filing about the “Cobb GOP being a plaintiff” but said he first “needed more information to at least make sure the executive officers were in agreeing to us being a party in the suit”. The Cobb County Republican party later agreed to remain plaintiffs in the case instead of withdrawing.

Leslie Levin, a professor at the University of Connecticut Law School, said in an interview: “Misrepresentations to the court are very serious because lawyers are officers of the court. Bringing a lawsuit in someone’s name when they haven’t consented to being a party is a very serious misrepresentation and one for which a lawyer should expect to face serious discipline.”

Nora Freeman Engstrom, a law professor at Stanford University, says that Powell’s actions appear to violate Rule 3.3 of the ABA’s model rules of professional misconduct which hold that “a lawyer shall not knowingly … make a false statement of fact of law to a tribunal”.

Since election day last year, federal and state courts have dismissed more than 60 lawsuits alleging electoral fraud and irregularities by Powell, and other Trump allies.

Shortly after the election, Trump named Powell as a senior member of an “elite strike force” who would prove that Joe Biden only won the 2020 presidential race because the election was stolen from him. But Trump refused to pay her for her services. To remedy this, Powell set up a new nonprofit called Defending the Republic; its stated purpose is to “protect the integrity of elections in the United States”.

As a nonprofit, the group is allowed to raise unlimited amounts of “dark money” and donors are legally protected from the ordinary requirements to disclose their identities to the public. Powell warned supporters that for her to succeed, “millions of dollars must be raised”.

Echoing Trump’s rhetoric, Powell told prospective donors that Defending the Republic had a vast team of experienced litigators.

Among the attorneys who Powell said made up this “taskforce” were Emily Newman, who had served Trump as the White House liaison to the Department of Health and Human Services and as a senior official with the Department of Homeland Security. Newman had been a founding board member of Defending the Republic.

But facing sanctions in the Michigan case, some of the attorneys attempted to distance themselves from having played much of a meaningful role in her litigation.

Newman’s attorney told Parker, the judge, that Newman had “not played a role in the drafting of the complaint … My client was a contract lawyer working from home who spent maybe five hours on this matter. She really wasn’t involved … Her role was de minimis.”

To have standing to file her Michigan case, Powell was initially unable to find a local attorney to be co-counsel on her case but eventually attorney Gregory Rohl agreed to help out.

But when Rohl was sanctioned by Parker and referred to the Michigan attorney disciplinary board for further investigation, his defense was that he, too, was barely involved in the case. He claimed that he only received a copy of “the already prepared” 830-page initial complaint at the last minute, reviewed it for “well over an hour”, while then “making no additions, decisions or corrections” to the original.

As with Newman, Parker, found that Rohl violated ethics rules by making little, if any, effort to verify the facts of the claims in Powell’s filings.

In sanctioning Rohl, the judge wrote that “the court finds it exceedingly difficult to believe that Rohl read an 830-page complaint in just ‘well over an hour’ on the day he filed it. So, Rohl’s argument in and of itself reveals sanctionable conduct.”

Govt to introduce important Bill, Covid situation likely to be discussed

Published

on



The government on Thursday will table ‘The National Institute of Pharmaceutical Education and Research (Amendment) Bill 2021’ in the Lok Sabha. A discussion on Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic and its various related aspects is also likely to take place in the lower House.


Health Minister Mansukh Mandaviya will move the ‘The National Institute of Pharmaceutical Education and Research (Amendment) Bill’ in the Lok Sabha to amend the National Institute of Pharmaceutical Education and Research Act, 1998.





Under rule 193, a discussion on Covid-19 pandemic and various aspects related to it will likely take place. According to sources, the members may also raise their concern and ask for the government’s preparedness for the new Omicron variant. Under Rule 193, members can seek details about the new Covid variant. “Short duration discussion is likely to be held in the Lok Sabha on the Covid and its various aspects, including new Omicron variant,” sources said.


Union Minister Gajendra Singh Shekhawat, Prahlad Singh Patel, General V.K. Singh, Krishan Pal, Bhanu Pratap Verma, Rameshwar Teli and Kaushal Kishore will lay papers on the table. Reports and action reports of different standing committees will also be laid in the day.


The Lok Sabha on Wednesday passed the Assisted Reproductive Technology (Amendment) Bill 2021 (ART) by voice vote as the amendments moved by the DMK MP N.K. Prem Chandran, Trinamool Congress MP Saugata Roy and Shiv Sena MP Vinayak Raut were negated. The ART Bill seeks to regulate fertility clinics. All such clinics will have to be registered under the National Registry of Banks and Clinics of India.


The opposition is likely to continue to raise its voices on price rise, unemployment and extended jurisdiction of the Border Security Force (BSF) in some states. The opposition parties are also demanding a law guaranteeing the minimum support price (MSP).
