Backstage Notes

- Diamante and Jade Cargill were both listed as heels for their matches.

- Rey Fenix and Jungle Boy were both listed as faces for their match.

- Brody King & Buddy Matthews are still known as "House of Black" internally.

- Jade Cargill and Diamante's match aired out of order from how it was taped on TV.

- Jungle Boy is not listed as "Jack Perry" internally

- The actual taping of Ramage was over 2 and a half hours long before edited down.

- 'Penta El Zero Miedo" is how his name is stylized internally.

- In what is becoming something of a regularity, All Elite Wrestling held another talent meeting before the AEW Dynamite Grand Slam show.

We're still working to gain details about who spoke at the meeting, but those we heard from in attendance said that it was very positive and effectively served as a pep talk for the roster ahead of a major show. The talent meetings held since All Out have seemed to resonate well with roster and staff that we've spoken to.

A longtime AEW talent that we spoke with said the last three weeks have been much more laid back than how things were in the weeks that led up to AEW All Out. Another veteran claimed that the locker room has been the best over the last three tapings than it's been in quite a while.

One AEW source we spoke used the term "addition by subtraction," but wouldn't specify who they meant specifically in that regard.
