Welcome to Ringside News’ live results coverage of AEW Dynamite!
Tonight’s show features all of the fallout from AEW Full Gear, which took place this past Saturday night. The likes of Kenny Omega and Cody Rhodes are not cleared to compete, so we might not see them at all tonight. However we will be seeing MJF, who must explain why he attacked Cody following the World Title match at Full Gear.
Dynamite will feature a big title match tonight though, with Sammy Guevara and Chris Jericho facing SCU for the Tag Team Championships. This match sure is an odd one, especially considering The Inner Circle already has a tag team that is surely next in line for a title shot after beating The Young Bucks clean. What with wins and losses mattering, right? Well it seems not when we look at tonight.
The only other announced match for Dynamite tonight is that of “Hangman” Adam Page facing PAC in a rematch from Saturday. Page defeated PAC clean at Full Gear, so a rematch seems unwarranted but it was one of the better matches on Saturday, so another round isn’t unwelcome.
And that’s the preview for Dynamite. Theoretically, we should get lots of good story development tonight, coming out of the PPV, but story is not AEW’s strong suit. Fingers crossed tonight proves me wrong though, especially because last week’s Dynamite was a massive improvement in that regard. Follow along here for all the results live, as well as on Twitter and Instagram. Enjoy the show!
Dynamite opens with the commentary team giving us a rundown of tonight’s show.
We see a video of Kenny Omega getting checked by a doctor: he has a black eye and big marks on his back. The doc tells him he isn’t allowed to compete and Kenny asks how Mickey is, to which the doctor says he’s head-on but cleared to compete. Speaking of which, Jon Moxley makes his way to the ring for a match.
Nakazawa oils himself as the bell rings, then takes the fight to Moxley. He doesn’t get far though as Jon cuts him off pretty quickly. Moxley connects with a few lariats to Nakazawa and chokes him down before hitting the Paradigm Shift for the very quick win.
After the match, Jon grabs a microphone and says “does that one count?” He says he is a lot of things but nobody can call him a liar. He delivered the goods at Full Gear, as advertised. Moxley gives props to Kenny Omega and says he’s a sick dude who had the balls to face him, something he doesn’t think anyone else in AEW does. Moxley says it doesn’t matter, because he’s on a pilgrimage and he challenges anyone to step in the ring with him. If they do though, they need to have an ambulance on stand-by, kiss their families goodbye, and don’t ask for a damn apology.
Marko Stunt starts the match against Evil Uno and jumps onto him but gets tossed off. Stunt hits a tilt-a-whirl arm-drag and Evil tags Grayson, while Jungle Boy also tags in.
Grayson hits a headscissors but Jack kips-up and dropkicks Grayson before tagging Stung again. Stunt ducks a clothesline and hits a tilt-a-whirl headscissors and tags Jungle Boy again. They hit a double team poetry in motion against the rope. Jungle Boy takes a wristlock and tags Stunt, who hits an axe handle from the top rope. Grayson rolls-up Stunt as Evil Uno makes a blind tag and kicks Stunt.
Evil Uno heads to the top rope and hits a swanton bomb for a near-fall. Uno grabs the hair of Marko and tags Grayson, before hitting a backbreaker. Stunt rolls to the apron and Grayson hits a stalling tope from the ring to the apron. Grayson and the Order taunt the fans at ringside.
Uno tags in and stomps Marko down but the little guy fires back with right hands…only to be felled by a big chop. Uno drags Stunt to his corner and makes the tag to Grayson again as we head to the break.
We return to see Marko Stunt being beaten down by Evil Uno. Uno attempts a tilt-a-whirl backbreaker but Marko counters into a flatliner and both men are down. Marko reaches for a tag, Grayson tries to stop Jungle Boy but eats a knee.
Jungle Boy gets the tag and hits a dropkick to Uno followed by a suicide dive onto Grayson on the floor! Back in the ring, Jungle Boy hits a moonsault knee onto Uno for a near-fall! Marko tags back into the match and the Express try to double-team Uno but he reverses it. Grayson tags-in and eats a double superkick from Stunt and Boy, followed by a stereo enziguiri’s on Uno!
Jungle Boy helps Marko spring to the top rope – Stunt almost messes up and crashed to the floor – then springboards into a dragonrana on Grayson for a near-fall as Uno knocks Jungle Boy into them to break it up. Jungle Boy knocks both members of the Dark Order to the floor and then goes for another dive only for them to catch him in mid-air and hit a double pump kick.
Back in the ring, Grayson hits the Knightfall on Stunt, then the Dark Order connect with The Fatality on him for the pin and the win.
After the match, Uno grabs a mic and tries to get Marko Stunt to join the Dark Order, offering him a mask. Jungle Boy rejects the mask and throws it at Uno, then the Order attack.
Luchasauras comes out to make the save! Back from injury, Luchasauras stomps to the ring, kicking, headbutting, and tossing members of the Order. He then hits three at once with a spinning heel kick, before chokeslamming Grayson and hitting a moonsault. The Jurassic Express poses in the ring!
Shawn Spears, the Chairman, flanked by Tully Blanchard makes his way to the ring.
We return and Peter Avalon comes out with Leva Bates. Avalon cuts a pathetic promo about local music artists that ends abruptly when Darby Allin comes out and skateboards to the ring.
Darby and Spears come face-to-face at the bell and Avalon attempts to dive onto them from the top rope but they simply move out of the way and he crashes. Avalon rolls from the ring.
Darby dodges and ducks Spears for a minute, then connects with a springboard arm-drag sending Spears to the floor. Alin looks for a dive but Avalon cuts him off in the ring. Allin dropkicks Avalon to the floor and then climbs up top only for Spears to crotch him on the top.
Spears hits a front suplex on Allin for a near-fall, then chokes him in the corner. Spears goes to the floor, stares down Bate, then suplexes Avalon onto the apron.
Joey Janella suddenly appears on the ramp and Spears makes his way up towards him. Janella and Spears start brawling and the action spills into the crowd – again AEW ignores rules. Meanwhile Allin rolls Avalon up in the ring for a near-fall. Allin hits a flipping stunner on Avalon and then the Coffin Drop for the pin!
After the match, Allin grabs a microphone and says “Jon moxley, I accept.”
We come back and Jim Ross says it is official: next week Jon Moxley will face Darby Allin.
The bell rings and Jordan eats a big boot from Rose. Nyla goes for a chokeslam but Jordan escapes and slaps Rose across the face. Big mistake.
Rose drops Jordan with a big clothesline, then whips her hard into the corner. Rose hits a big splash in the corner followed by a Samoan drop. Nyla hits the Beast Bomb and gets the pin.
Tony Schiavone interviews Allie at ringside. He says she is currently ranked number four in the women’s division. Allie says she has been killing it on Dark, and now she’s ready to come to Dynamite. The lights go out in the arena and Awesome Kong is on the stage with Brandi Rhodes behind her. Kong stomps down the ramp and Allie attacks her. Kong simply throws her away, before Brandi cuts a piece of Allie’s hair off and Kong smells it.
Le Champion, Chris Jericho, will be out next to talk about Full Gear and his match later tonight.
AEW World Champion, Chris Jericho, makes his way to the ring all on his lonesome.
Jericho says that, much to the chagrin of everyone here in Nashville, he is still Le Champion – try as he might, the entire arena cheered that. Jericho says he proved himself to be the greatest of all-time again. And that’s why he demands a thank you from the entire AEW roster, the back office, the front office, the side office, he wants it.
The fans start chanting “thank you”, but Jericho says he doesn’t care about jackasses from Nashville, he wants a thank you from the roster. He says he has beaten everyone from Darby Allin to Hangman Page and, of course Cody. Jericho says he proved Cody to be nothing more than an entitled millennial son-of-a-bitch.
As is customary, the lights go out in the arena and this time it’s MJF who comes out. The fans boo loud and MJF says they can boo all they want. He says they’re booing because he threw in the towel but if he hadn’t done that Cody’s career would be over. MJF says the fans love Cody but the real Cody only cares about himself, he doesn’t care about the fans. MJF says there is only one person who knows the real Cody, and it’s him.
MJF says the real Cody is a liar, a user-and-abuser, someone who saw a young, talented kid in MJF, and tried to make him a puppet. He calls Cody a sociopath. The fans chant “bull$hit” and MJF says what’s bull$hit is that Cody ever cared for him. All he wanted to do was keep him under his thumb but his thumb wasn’t big enough. MJF says he’s better than Cody and he’s the new face of AEW.
Jericho and MJF come face-to-face and MJF says he’s a big fan. He says he’s heard from a little birdie that Jericho wants him in The Inner Circle. Jericho says that’s funny, because he’s heard MFJ wants to join the Circle. They go back and forth, asking each other. MFJ says he’s sure Chris would love him to join The Inner Circle-jerk and he’s heard that he likes to partake in a little bit of the bubble, but he might enjoy drinking too much. Because he’s the youngest and fastest-rising star in the history of wrestling, and he doesn’t need Chris Jericho.
Jericho mocks his name and says it seems MJF wants to be Chris Jericho. They’re both from Long Island, both have three-letter names, both love scarves, and both have good looks. Jericho says they’re so similar that he thinks MJF’s parents were watching him beat-up Juventud Guerrero 25 years ago. MJF asks “who?”, to which Jericho says “Google it”.
Again they go back and forth asking each other if they want to be partners, then say they both know who the real problem is: Cody Rhodes. Jericho and MJF hug – exactly the way Jericho and Kevin Owens once blamed Roman Reigns. Cody then comes out and walks down the ramp. Cody slides into the ring and attacks MJF, then botches a powerslam with Jericho. Suddenly, Wardlow appears and attacks Cody! He beats him down and ends-up choking him with his tie over the ropes as we head to the break.
The bell sounds and PAC dodges a running Page to hit a kick. PAC heads up top but Page rolls out of the way. PAC hits a few kicks and Page rolls from the ring to the floor, where PAC hits a dive onto him. PAC climbs to the top rope and hits a moonsault to Page on the floor.
Back in the ring, Page knocks PAC right back out and follows-up with a suicide dive. Page gets PAC back inside and hits a pop-up powerbomb for a two-count. PAC heads to the apron and dives at Page, only to eat a boot. Page chops PAC and lifts him onto the top rope. Hangman looks for the fallaway slam but PAC fights him off and hits a missile dropkick. PAC climbs the ropes again and this time PAC hits a missile dropkick to the back for a near-fall.
Page rolls to the apron and PAC joins him, only to be caught with a slam. Page climbs to the top rope and hits his patented moonsault to the floor. Page sends PAC into the ring as we head to the break.
Hangman Page looks for the Buckshot Lariat as we return but PAC kicks him back. Page hits a discus elbow, then gets caught with a snap German suplex. PAC looks for another German suplex but Page lands on his feet and hits a discus lariat and both men are down.
Page lifts PAC and they exchange waistlock reversals. They repeat the spot from Full Gear in which PAC blocks the referee’s view and attempts a low-blow, but time Page grabs the foot. PAC hits a mule kick but then Page hits a superkick and PAC rolls to the outside. Page goes after PAC, who has found a seat in the corner. PAC looks for the brainbuster on the chairs again but this time Page hits his own on the floor.
Page sends PAC back into the ring and hits the Buckshot Lariat but PAC kicks out! PAC nudges the referee into Page’s face, then uses the distraction to connect with two switch kicks. PAC stomps on the head of Hangman over and over until the referee pulls him off. PAC heads to the top and hits the Black Arrow, followed by The Brutalizer and Hangman is out cold.
We cut backstage to find The Young Bucks brawling with Santana and Ortiz. Matt Jackson lifts Santana and powerslams him through a table with food on it. The Bucks then get pulled back by officials, but Ortiz jumps off of a forklift and onto all of them. Ortiz and Nick Jackson brawl around some more until Jackson is whipped into a door that swings open and Orange Cassidy is just standing behind it. Ortiz slowly closes the door, then turns into superkicks from Matt and Nick. We head to a break as the brawl continues.
Via the split-screen commercial, we see the brawl with The Bucks and Santana and Ortiz makes its way to ringside. They continue fighting around the ring until officials pull them apart. We return from the break and The Bucks superkick security to continue the fight. Santana and Ortiz use the sock filled with baseballs to beat Nick Jackson down, then wrap Matt’s leg around some lighting rig and beat it with the sock. Santana and Ortiz then lift Nick Jackson and powerbomb him off the stage through a table, just like they did to Ricky Morton. They try to do the same to Matt at the other side of the stage but Brandon Cutler comes out to stop them. They attack him as well, then Private Party come out along with more officials to separate everyone. Two seconds later it’s announced that Santana & Ortiz will face Private Party next week.
The AEW Tag Team Champions, SCU, make their way to the ring for the main event.
The match begins with Chris Jericho and Frankie Kazarian, with the latter forcing the former to the corner. They lock-up again and this time Y2J forces Kazarian to the corner, then looks for a cheap-shot but gets caught with two arm-drags. Jericho chops the chest of Kazarian but eats a dropkick in return. Jericho scrambles to his corner and tags Sammu Guevara.
Kazarian arm-drags Guevara and tags Scorpio, who hits a big backbreaker for a one-count. Sammy fires back with a kneelift and a few chops, then hits a leapfrog but Kazarian then drapes him on the middle rope. Scorpio kicks Sammy on the rope and Frankie hits a snap German suplex that planted him on his head. Jericho runs in and so does Scorpio, who hits Le Champion with a dropkick. Jericho rolls from the ring to regroup with Hager as we take the final break of the night.
We’re back live and Guevara hits Kazarian with a Samoan drop. Frankie takes the back of Sammy but gets elbowed away. Guevara connects with a dropkick, then poses for the fans. Jericho runs in to pose with him, then Sammy hits a dropkick to Frankie.
Guevara applies a reverse chinlock following a snapmare, but Kazarian quickly fights to his feet and looks for the tag but gets caught with Spanish Fly. Guevara heads up-top and looks for the shooting star press but nobody’s home.
Scorpio Sky gets the tag and takes Guevara down with a flying back elbow, followed by a few kicks and a dropkick. Jericho runs in and he too eats a dropkick. Sammy reverse a whip but gets hit with a spinebuster, followed by a neckbreaker for a two-count. Scorpio connects with a big cutter from the apron to the ring, then applies a dragon sleeper.
Jericho breaks it up but Kazarian hits him with a guillotine. Scorpio and Frankie look for SCULater but, right in front of the referee, Hager dragged Kazarian from the ring and slammed him. Christopher Daniels then hit a suicide dive to Hager but got caught in mid-air and slammed.
Meanwhile, in the ring, Sammy tags Jericho but Scorpio takes him down with a dropkick and a double stomp to the back. Sky hits a fallaway cutter for a near-fall. Jericho misses a dropkick and Sky looks for an elbow from the middle rope but Jericho moves. Jericho looks for the Lionsault but Sky gets his knees up. Scorpio looks for another cutter but Jericho catches him with a Codebreaker for the nearest of near-falls! Sky then rolls-up Jericho for the win!
Jericho is incensed after the match and he starts tearing ringside apart. Jericho rips the barricade apart before grabbing a chair and beating it off the ring post repeatedly.
And that’s the end of Dynamite. Remember to let us know what you thought of the show, and be sure to come back tomorrow for more wrestling news! Until then, safe travels!
