Welcome to Ringside News’ live results coverage of AEW Dynamite.
Last week was, arguably, the single biggest week in the history of professional wrestling; with the big Raw season premiere, a huge episode of NXT, the debut episode of AEW Dynamite, the first episode of SmackDown on Fox, and then the highly-controversial Hell In A Cell PPV.
Naturally, there’s no way this week could match that of last, but tonight’s Dynamite aims to be damn close. And that’s because The Young Bucks will be taking on Private Party, Chris Jericho & Sammy Guevara will face Hangman Page & Dustin Rhodes, Jon Moxley Vs. Shawn Spears, and a number one contender match between Jimmy Havoc and Darby Allin.
That’s a pretty jam packed show and there’s a lot to build upon following last week’s storylines. Tonight’s Dynamite is set to be an exciting show, so make sure you follow along on our Twitter, Instagram, or by downloading the Ringside News app. Enjoy the show!
The sophomore episode of AEW Dynamite emanates from Boston University and it is raucous.
A video package airs to hype The Young Bucks Vs. Private Party. Matt and Nick make their entrance first.
The match begins with Nick and Isiah Kassidy. Jackson takes a wristlock but Isiah reverses it to grab one of his own. Nick shoots for a few superkicks but Kassidy dodges them, prompting Nick to spit his gum in Isiah’s face. The young star gets angry and runs at Nick but gets knocked from the ring.
Nick and Matt double-team Isiah. They look for a double suplex but Isiah lands on his feet and suckers Matt out of the ring. He then dodges Nick to hit a springboard moonsault to Matt on the outside before tagging Marq Quen.
Quen comes in like a bat out of hell and hits dives over the ropes to both Bucks multiple times. He gets Nick Jackson back in the ring and hits a 450 splash for a near-fall. Marq goes to the corner and looks for a splash but nobody’s home. Tag made to Matt Jackson and the Bucks hit stereo superkicks to Quen, then Kassidy.
Kassidy is on the apron and Matt divers over him for a sunset flip powerbomb but Kassidy holds onto the ropes. Matt lifts him off the apron and runs him up the ramp where he lands the powerbomb! The Bucks get Quen on the top rope and hit a powerbomb/sliced bread combo for a near-fall.
Nick goes for the sharpshooter but Quen pulls himself to the ropes. Nick lands a double foot stomp on Quen as he was bent backwards over Matt’s knees. Nick looks for a superkick but Quen blocks it and throws his foot into Matt. Nick goes for a suicide dive but Quen sidesteps him and Nicks flies out of the ring. Quen looks to tag out, but Nick pulls Kassidy off the apron a split second prior. Matt connects with a spear for a two-count.
Quen is able to finally tag out and Kassidy comes in with a dropkick to both Bucks. Kassidy hits a double hurricanrana to both Bucks, then he and Quen attempt a double team move but Matt counters with multiple german suplexes on Kassidy, then a double german suplex on both opponents for a near-fall. The Young Bucks hit a buckle bomb/kick to the back of the head.
Matt with another sharpshooter on Kassidy and Quen gets knocked out on the floor. Kassidy tries to get to the ropes, but Nick comes over the ropes with a springboard facebuster to Kassidy, then hits a moonsault on Quen on the outside. Matt cinches the Sharpshooter in but Kassidy is able to claw his way to the ropes.
A blind tag by Quen while Matt and Nick have some confusion. Quen drops Matt hits a hurricanrana on Nick sending him off the second rope right into a cutter by Kassidy! Quen goes for a shooting star press but it’s enough for the win. The Bucks look for the Meltzer Diver but Kassidy yanks down Nick and Quen rolls-up Matt for the win!
After the match the Bucks look astonished and angry. We see the likes of SCU standing behind the barricade, watching on and clapping. Private Party make their way into the crowd to celebrate.
We return to see the AEW World Champion, Chris Jericho, make his way to the ring with Jake Hager, Sammy Guevara, Ortiz, and Santana. Jericho mentions that last week’s episode of Dynamite took the world by Storm, and it’s all because of him. The fans chant “thank you Jericho”, but he tells them to shut up. He says last week they beat the hell out of The Elite and proved that they are the now.
Jericho gestures to his cohorts and says he’s never had better brothers and they are his team. He talks up Sammy Guevara, saying he’s like a “sexy, Spanish God”, a heartthrob, and the best young star he’s ever seen. He says Guevara is on his list. Then he turns his attention to Santana and Ortiz and says they’re dirty and they’re tough as all hell, and that’s why he brought them to AEW, and that’s why they’re on his list. He then says “Viva la Raza” in favour of Eddie’s birthday. He finally turns to Jake Hager and the fans start chanting “We The People”. Jericho stops them and says that gimmick was the result of bad creative and it’s dead. The real Jake Hager is a former World Champion and a legit undefeated MMA beast. He says he is the toughest man in AEW, and this is his inner circle. In fact, they are Inner Circle, and they’re in charge.
Jericho turns his attention to Cody and says he doesn’t like him. He says he’s entitled. He says he didn’t like his jerk of a father, Dusty Rhodes. And he doesn’t like Dustin Rhodes either, because he’s a wannabe. And because of all that, he’s going to “beat the $hit” out of Cody at AEW Full Gear next month, and then the Inner Circle will go for a bit of the bubbly. “You’re welcome”.
Jimmy Havoc makes his way to the ring for his number one contender match against Darby Allin. We get a split-screen promo from him as he makes his entrance and he talks about liking pain, and how he aims to make Allin feel his pain.
The match begins and Darby looks for a handshake. Havoc grabs his hand and swings for him but Allin dodges it and looks for a roll-up to no avail. Havoc looks for a pin of his own but Darby kicks out. Havoc then spits on Allin, who gets mad and hits a springboard arm drag, followed by a back elbow in the corner. Allin hits a nice corner dropkick and Havoc rolls to the apron.
Allin stands on the bottom rope and tries to suplex Havoc into the ring but Jimmy bites his hand to get out. Havoc then suplexes Darby to the floor! Havoc gets him back inside for a two count. Havoc slows things down and twists the fingers of Allin. Havoc punches Allin in the corner and twists his fingers again. Alli leaps over Havoc but runs into a hanging sleeper in the corner. Havoc climbs down and hits a sleeper suplex. Allin rolls to the outside as we head to the break.
We’re back live and Allin is punching Havoc, but Jimmy floors him with a rolling elbow for a two count. Havoc hits a Death Valley Driver into the turnbuckles. Havoc lifts Allin and hits a tiger driver 98 for another near-fall. Allin attempts a crucifix pin to no avail.
Havoc stomps the face of Allin, then looks for a ripcord lariat but Darby bites is hand! Allin hits Havoc with a flipping stunner, then heads to the top rope and connects with Coffin Drop for the win!
On Dynamite next week in Philadelphia, Darby Allin faces Chris Jericho for the AEW World Championship.

Sakura pulls Riho by the hair and throws her across the ring. Sakura distracts the referee while Priestly chokes Riho.

Bea tosses Britt into the barricade, meanwhile Sakura is choking Riho in the ring with her boot.
Baker comes back with a Lou Thesz Press to Priestly and the referee tries to break it up – why there’s no count-out is beyond me. Sakura comes out and she helps Bea hit a double-team suplex to Britt on the floor. Riho then comes flying off the top rope with a crossbody to take them both out as we head to the break.
We’re back and Riho and Baker are in charge thanks to some well-placed knees, but Priestley cuts them off and tosses Riho into the ropes. Bea eats a headscissors takedown followed by a 619 for a near-fall! Baker tags in but gets caught with a Diving Ghetto Stomp to the back of the head from Priestley!

Sakura broke up the pinfall, then dragged Bea to the corner and tagged herself in.
Sakura hits a butterfly backbreaker on Baker and then a Running crossbody in the corner. Sakura hits a Vader Bomb off the middle rope for a near-fall.

Still to come, Hangman Page & Dustin Rhodes Vs. Chris Jericho & Sammy Guevara.
We get a hype video for the upcoming debut of Best Friends. They’re standing in the crowd and get interviewed. They’re asked how they feel about facing SCU next week, to which they just turn the attention to Orange Cassidy sitting behind them, who gives a lazy thumbs up.
The lights go out in the arena for a minute, then come up and Shawn Spears is sitting on the stage. He stands, grabs the chair, and comes to the ring.
Moxley is out next and PAC ‘The Bastard’ is on commentary but barely speaking.
Moxley stomped to the ring and butted heads with Spears, only to turn his attention to Blanchard. Spears then attacked Moxley to start the match. Spears chops him in the corner but Moxley turns the tables and lands 10 punches, followed by a snapmare and a kick. The fans are firmly behind Moxley. Jon beats Spears around the ring until he rolls outside to regroup with Tully.
Moxley wastes no time and goes after Spears, and tosses him into the barricade. Blanchard pulls Moxley off Spears, allowing Spears to grab Moxley. Jon shrugged him off and shoves him into the barricade again. JR asked why the referee didn’t call for the bell when Tully directly interfered by Tony said it’s up to the referee to make the call – just like in the last match when the referee didn’t count anybody out. Moxley knocks Spears into the ring, who distracts the referee, allowing Blanchard to shove Moxley into the steps.
Spears goes outside and whips Jon into the barricade, while Tully attempts to talk trash to the referee. Spears continues the beatdown on the outside, while PAC finally talks and says he’s only been pinned a couple of times in two years, yet he;s on commentary. Spears lifts Moxley and hits a Death Valley Driver into the barricade!
Back live and Spears hit Moxley with a spinebuster powerbomb. Shawn applies a single leg Boston crab to Moxley, who rolls through and kicks Spears to break the hold. Spears knees Moxley in the back to knock him from the ring, then hits a very tame suicide dive. He tosses Moxley inside the ring and poses, but Jon hits the ropes and wipes him out with a suicide dive of his own.
Moxley gets Spears back in the ring an clotheslines him in the corner, followed by chops and punches, the Violence Party. Moxley connects with a running knee for a near-fall. And we’re at the ten minute mark.
Spears counters Moxley and they engage in chops, forearms, and slaps. Spears drops Moxley with a kick but Jon retaliates with a lariat. Moxley looks for the Paradigm Shift but Spears counters with a ushigoroshi. Spears does the ten taunt to Moxley, who then headbutts him and hits the Paradigm Shift for the win!
Kenny Omega comes out after the match with two barbed wire weapons; a bat and a broom. Omega walks down the ramp and Moxley meets him there. They stare at each other and Omega tosses Moxley the barbed bat. They hold their weapons up and prepare for war but PAC comes running down and hits Omega in the back with a chair! Moxley tells PAC to leave, then he turns his attention to Kenny but drops the bat and walks off.
The match begins with Dustin Rhodes and Sammy Guevara. Before anything can happen, Jericho tags in and feigns locking-up with Rhodes but tags out. Dustin gets pissed and attacks Jericho anyway. The brawl spills from the ring and Dustin slams Jericho into the barricade and unload right hands on him. Rhodes then slams Jericho into another barricade and punch him again, before tossing him into the crowd – and again the referee doesn’t care to enforce a count-out. Guevara dives off the apron but gets caught by an uppercut from Rhodes.
Back inside the ring, Rhodes tags Page and they hit double-team splashes in the corner. Jericho is back on the apron in time to watch Page drop Guevara, then knock him off the apron. Page hits a fallaway slam then dives over the ropes onto Jericho, before tagging Rhodes. Dustin drops Sammy with an uppercut, then whips him hard into the turnbuckles. Dustin tags Hangman, then he hits a atomic drop, followed by a shooting star press from Page. Jericho breaks up the pin attempt.
Page body slams Guevara and heads up top, but Chris distracts him on the apron, allowing Sammy to climb up and drop Page on the top turnbuckle face-first. Page kicks out at two as we head to the final break of the night.
We come back to see Jericho choking Page on the middle rope, then hit a running knee to the back. Jericho lifts Page and again chokes him on the middle rope before taunting the fans. He looks for the running knee again but this time Page moves and both men are down. Jericho makes the tag to Guevara, who sprints across the ring to knock Dustin off the apron and prevent the tag.
Guevara applies a sleeper to Hangman Page. The Hangman fights out but Guevara drops him and tags Jericho, who comes in and slaps Page across the face.

Hangman drops Guevara with a discus clothesline and makes the tag!
Rhodes comes in and drops Guevara with a right hand, then a big clothesline. Uppercut and an inverted atomic drop from Rhodes, who then does it to Jericho as well, then catches both men with a springboard crossbody. Rhodes knocks Guevara from the ring, then Page hits a moonsault over the ropes to take him out. Just as Page is celebrating his move, Hager drops him with a huge lariat and the referee didn’t see.
Back inside the ring, Rhodes hits Jericho with a sunset pin for a near-fall. Rhodes lifts Jericho into the corner, then hits Guevara with a snap powerslam. Hager runs in and clotheslines Rhodes, rather blatantly in front of the referee who apparently didn’t see it. Jericho then hits Rhodes with the Judas Effect for the win.
After the match, Hager, Jericho, and Guevara attack Rhodes. Page comes in to help but Hager clotheslines him out of the ring. Hager comes outside but Page throws a chair into his face and they brawl to the back. Meanwhile Jericho and Guevara continue the beatdown on Dustin.
The fans chant for “Cody” and suddenly the lights go out. They come back up and Cody is behind Sammy. He hits him with CrossRhodes, then shares a staredown with Jericho. Santana and Ortiz come down and attack Cody. Jericho chokes Cody with his own tie, then MFJ comes down to even the odds. MJF pretends to turn heel, then attacks Jericho, Ortiz, and Santana with a chair. He gloats and breathes in the cheers of the crowd but then turns into a Codebreaker from Le Champion.
Now the Young Bucks come running down and they superkick Santana and Ortiz, as well as Guevara, before hitting suicide dives to the former. Jericho stands with the title as the brawl continues around ringside, with Cody standing in the ring staring at him. Jericho turns to leave but Darby Allin comes skateboarding down the ramp and dives onto Chris! He whacks Jericho over the back with the skateboard, before getting in the ring to pose with the babyfaces. The fans chant “AEW” as the heels and babyfaces stare each other down. Jericho grabs a microphone and says they don’t know who they’re dealing with. They’re the Inner Circle and they’re taking over. He says he’ll see Darby Allin next week and “it’s your funeral bitch!”
