This week’s episode of AEW Dynamite was the Fight For The Fallen special, which featured Jeff Hardy vs. Jeff Jarrett in a Texas Chainsaw Massacre Deathmatch.
The match involved all the members of the Hardy Party and Jarrett’s side. In the end, Leatherface showed up, and Jay Lethal hit Hardy with a hammer. Satnam Singh then hit a Chokeslam on Hardy, and Jarrett got the win.
Jarrett then declared himself the Texas Chainsaw Massacre Champion.
The sponsorship money of $100,000 for this match went to the Maui Food Bank to help those affected by the Maui wildfires.
However, the match was criticized by a lot of fans. Many people compared it to the Lumberjack match between Damian Priest and The Miz at WrestleMania: Backlash 2021, which featured zombies around the ring as it was sponsored by Army Of The Dead (WWE were paid $1 million for that).
AEW’s Dustin Rhodes shared his opinion on the Texas Chainsaw Massacre Deathmatch and called it very entertaining. He said people who are calling it the worst match ever are full of sh*t and aren’t real wrestling fans.
Below is what he tweeted:
“I thought the Texas Chainsaw match was entertaining as f**k. People saying it was the worst match ever are full of s**t.
I have that honor. Remember me in the back of a moving 18 wheeler with a cage around? King of the road got no love and in honesty, we did great and it was entertaining. Is that now what we do. F**king lighten Francis. #AEWDynamite #MauiFoodBank
@RealJeffJarrett and @JEFFHARDYBRAND killed it. They always do, plus I love #Leatherface”
“Wrestling needs Spectacles, storied psychological pro wrestling matches, high flyer matches. Something for everyone. The 1% of the idiots out there just like to b**ch and moan. They aren’t real wrestling fans.”
