Welcome to Ringside News’ live coverage of AEW Dynamite for November 27th.

We have a stacked episode of Dynamite tonight, with the AEW Champion, Christ Jericho, putting his title on the line against Scorpio Sky. Two weeks ago Scorpio pinned Le Champion in a tag team match, then last week he tricked into agreeing to the match tonight. This has all the makings of a fantastic showdown, however it seems unlikely we’ll get a clean finish for what could be an exciting new feud. And that’s after Jericho’s big Thanksgiving bash where he finally gets his thank you, which should be a blast.

Elsewhere tonight, ‘Hangman’ Adam Page faces MJF for a diamond ring. Last week the two of them were the last two standing in the Dynamite Dozen battle royale, leading to this showdown tonight. Cody says the AEW ring costs more than that of a Superbowl ring, and DDP will award the winner with it tonight. Truth be told, I don’t care for the ring gimmick, it seems like a really pointless idea instead of just introducing a mid-card title, but hey, MJF is sure to win and gloat about it forever and that’s fine by me.

Also tonight, Cody will have a match and make a statement of some kind, and that’s about all we know. There’s sure to be more developments with The Young Bucks/Santana & Ortiz, and perhaps more about Kenny Omega’s return. So remember to follow along on the Ringside News app, Instagram, and on Twitter. Enjoy the show!


AEW Dynamite

AEW Dynamite opens with Chris Jericho and Soul Train coming to the ring for the big Thanksgiving celebration – not unlike the Festival of Friendship – and flanked by a marching band.

The Chicago fans chant “thank you” but Jericho tells them to shut-up. He says he doesn’t need them messing-up his big event, and he doesn’t want their thank you, it’s AEW he needs to thank him. He mentions that some people in the crowd have cards under their table for 50 cents off a Le Champion t-shirt.

Jericho says that, after months of research and investigation, they found the greatest tasting grapes on the mountains of Nepal and crafted A Little Bit of The Bubbly champagne. You can buy the champagne, for real, at ALittleBitofTheBubbly.com. Jericho and Soul Train drink some of the champagne before Y2J introduces his best friends, The Inner Circle.

Sammy Guevara, Santana & Ortiz come to the ring and Sammy calls Jericho his father figure. He says they have a lot of great stuff planned for Jericho but his is particularly special. He says a picture is worth a thousand words but this one is priceless, and he unveils a cardboard cut-out of the two of them hugging. Jericho loves it. Santana & Ortiz bring a gift basket with flu medicine, a 40oz, flip-flops, and more. Ortiz says the flip-flops can double as a weapon as all Spanish mothers know. Jericho asks where Jake Hager is but they don’t know.

A minute later, Hager comes out from the back with a goat on a leash. Hager says its name is Chris Jerigoat and the fans chant the name. Y2J turns his attention to the giant box in the ring wrapped in his face. Santana & Ortiz lift the box up and reveal Chris Jericho’s father underneath. Jericho hugs his dad, who is wearing a NY Rangers jersey because he used to play for them. His dad says he’s happy to be back in New York and the fans boo. Jericho says they’re in Chicago and his dad says he used to play for the Rangers and they beat the Blackhawks over and over. He says the Blackhawks are wimps. Jericho’s dad says he has gifts for all of The Inner Circle; personalised Rangers jerseys and the fans boo as they take them out of a bag.

Jericho gets down to business with a thank you letter from AEW brass. He opens the letter and brings Justin Roberts into the ring to read the letter. The fans chant “you can’t read”. Jericho asks where he’s from and Roberts says right down the road, went to High School near the arena. Jericho says his high school sucked.

Roberts reads the letter that says AEW wishes Jericho its sincerest gratitude. He has helped make AEW into the most-talked about wrestling league in the world. Chris Jericho exemplifies the kind of leader and wrestler they want on the roster, and they are proud to have him as Le Champion. Jericho says that was a nice letter but he didn’t like the way Roberts read it. He says he thinks he’s better than them because he’s from down the street. Jericho slaps Roberts, then they all gang-up on him. During the beating, three of the marching band run down and attack The Inner Circle and it turns out to be Scorpio Sky, Frankie Kazarian, and Christopher Daniels. They clear the ring and The Inner Circle retreat.

Later tonight, Scorpio takes-on Jericho for the AEW Championship, Kenny Omega faces PAC, MJF battles Hangman Page for the diamond ring, and Cody returns.

Best Friends make their way to the ring but before they get that far, Lucha Bros attack them from behind! Trent and Chuck reverse whips into the barricade, then Orange Cassidy jumps onto them from the top rope to ringside!
