Okay, it didn't happen.  But they had someone cloaked facially and in all-black and they didn't cut to their shot at any point.   Maybe they just want the crew to blend in to the fabric.

Tony Khan with a message about Asian American Pacific Islander month and how none of the wrestlers who looked like him were portrayed as babyfaces when hew as a kid. He does realize that Riho looks nothing like him in more ways than one, right? The package made me wonder if Tony thinks he's a tiny Japanese girl. Oh well, diversity and all that jazz. Moving on...

Mercedes Martinez predictably beats Impact's Deonna Purrazzo to unify the lineal and interim ROH Women's titles. It was given the main event slot on Dynamite and I don't know if the fans cared about it as much as they wanted them to. The match was fine for what it was but at the end of the day it just looked like Deonna was there to put over an AEW talent, which is exactly what she was there to do. She probably deserved better, but whatever had possibly been planned before went out the window when Khan bought ROH. Deonna certainly looked better this week than the woman she beat for the title, Rok-C, who was last seen running around the beach with an Asian chick in pajamas on NXT.

AEW has been sued by some blind asshole who claims their merch website doesn't abide by the Americans With Disabilities Act for the visually impaired. This is a copycat lawsuit as someone sued WWE for the same thing a few years ago, resulting in an out-of-court settlement for an undisclosed sum, so this is basically free money. I hope this guy's seeing-eye dog leads him into traffic.

Stuff like this makes me wish that I would have went to law school and become a lawyer. There are so many frivolous lawsuits that companies just pay to make go away that the lawyer could make a fortune. I am sure that lawyers have a never-ending supply of potential litigation lined up due to the COVID pandemic and all of the "uncharted" areas of the law where people, government, and companies were just making things up as it went along.

I've read a couple of deep dives about this. There isn't a blind wrestling fan sitting at home crying because he can't order a Young Bucks t-shirt. The lawyer searches the Internet for online stores which don't follow the ADA rules and then lines up some patsies to build his class action suit. The rules are so strict that you aren't even supposed to put colors together that could confuse a color blind person. Most of it though is making sure that it is compatable with the reader software that the blind use. All they are looking for is a quick settlement to make  fast buck. On the other side, apparently the AEW site isn't well built and they haven't made any attempt to comply with the rules, most of which are pretty simple, such as every picture should have a text description embedded. The lawyer is the asshole, but AEW should have probably hired a better web designer than Excaliber.

 Probably could have done a better job if not for that stupid ass mask.

He hasn’t wrestled on Dynamite in a very long time and was last seen on Dark Elevation on April 20.  Grayson and Evil Uno were an original AEW tag team and a top Canadian indy team who got lost in the shuffle as the roster expanded. Tony Khan has made it a point not to release anyone without cause, so it’s assumed his contract was quietly allowed to expire on May 1. There’s no word yet on the status of Uno.
Evil Uno is still with the company as he competed with the Dark Order in an Elevation taping last night.  It's a bit odd that they came in as a team but have different contract end dates, unless Uno was re-signed and Grayson wasn't for some reason.

They apparently were in talks with Grayson to re-sign, but they couldn't come to an agreement. I guess Uno agreed. Uno has a lot going on with the gaming side of AEW and  has his YouTube and Twitch to bring in some extra cash. Grayson doesn't do any of that as far as I know. Might have been the difference.

Grayson had a segment within the weekly Evil Uno Vlog where he would work out in hotel or city gyms and give his personal review.  He had his own star system of "Angry Stu's" which were lower in general if they had too many cardio machines.   He has been fairly normal in AEW interviews like "Unleashed" but when he would bark at his audience in his French-Canadian accent on the Vlog, he had a great presence, almost like a downsized Jos LeDuc.   I will miss that element, and maybe Evil Uno is angling to do less ring work and more side projects anyway.  He was a "middle manager" for Dark Order when Brodie Lee was around, and he's always dressed more for the office anyway.

Interesting how "live" tonight's Impact commentary was, with mentions of what happened with Deonna and Morrissey on Dynamite last night and all the events this week in NJPW involving Juice Robinson joining Bullet Club etc.

Rampage is starting now at a special time this week.   Despite their best efforts to mention it numerous times, only seeing this thread reminded me and I'd have been irritated tonight that I can't retain basic info anymore.   Starting with Ruby Soho/Toni Storm vs. Jamie Hayter/Dr. Britt Baker.

Storm and Ruby get the win in a pretty well-worked opener.   For the short amount of time they've been around each other, the timing and execution looked like they were all pretty comfortable together.  Storm rolls up Baker for the three-count.
