Nick is out indefinitely, and Page is nowhere to be seen.

Your winner: Jurassic Express
We go to commercial and I feel like a goober for not knowing the name of Jurassic Express’s finishing move because the announcers were talking over each other.
When we come back, the Dark Order is here. Evil Uno and Stu Grayson enter the ring with a Microphone. Uno asks the production team to focus on his eyes. He says that the Exalted One will bring the Dark Order to a higher level, and he hopes they see what he sees. He promised he would bring in the Exalted One and he never lies.
Uno stated the Exalted One is near, but he is cut off by SCU. Daniels says it’s all lies. He hasn’t made any of the people’s lives better, he’s wasted our time and we are sick of it. It’s all lies and there is no Exalted One. He cuts off the music and starts a video of the Exalted One.
The Exalted One introduces himself and in a very short time, you will be up to speed on who he is. He says the new rule of the Dark Order is that they do what they want, when they want. If they come to your door, you open the door or he will kick the door open. He brings down his hood and it’s Brody Lee. He says Christopher Daniels is unsafe. Daniels is not the first out of touch old man who doesn’t believe in him, but he will be the last.
We come back, and Brody Lee is there, and all three of the Dark Order take down SCU and it’s time for commercials.
Back in the Arena, Tony Schiavone is with Jack Roberts and Lance Archer. Jake speaks for him, and they laid the gauntlet at Cody’s feet and got nothing in return. Jake has a record that will make Cody say Holy Crap. It’s one thing to stay out of their way, but to ignoring them is like spitting in their face. He tells Cody to shut him up if he can, and it’s time for Cody to stand up and meet The Man.
They are there for a specific reason, and it wouldn’t be personal, but now it is and they will get his attention. Tony then gives us a video package introducing Lance Archer at a ring in the woods, and he is told to Try or Die. We see Lance take out a bunch of smaller opponents from around the ring until they are all laying at his feet. Really great video package.
We get a rundown of the next Dynamite, whenever it is. Nick Jackson is out with an internal injury and not cleared to travel, so tonight’s match to see who gets the advantage is of VITAL IMPORTANCE.
The Inner Circle is Jake Hager, Santana and Ortiz with Sammy at ringside and Jericho on Commentary. The Elite is Cody with Arn Anderson, Matt Jackson because Nick is not cleared to travel, and Adam Page with Kenny Omega instead of a drink.
When Jericho comes out, Sammy sings along, terribly, to his song and forgets a lot of the words. It’s just great stuff here.
Jericho’s commentary is gold. You NEED to see this segment just for that.
