AEW Dynamite Results – January 8, 2020

Welcome to Ringside News’ live results coverage of AEW Dynamite.

Kris Statlander, the alien, gets her shot at Riho’s AEW Women’s Championship tonight. Last week Riho defended her title in a Fatal 4-Way, but was badly beaten after the match by Nyla Rose. Riho is unlikely to be 100% tonight as she battles the impressive Kris Statlander, who may or may not have The Nightmare Collective in her corner.

Other matches tonight include Christopher Daniels Vs. Sammy Guevara, Hangman Page & Kenny Omega Vs. Private Party, the Lucha Bros Vs. Cody and Dustin Rhodes, and Jurassic Express battling Best Friends. So it’s set to be a tag team heavy episode of AEW, which are usually my least favourite – I know I’m the minority.

However there are two big segments planned for tonight, in which Cody and Jon Moxley answer their respective offers laid forth by MJF and Chris Jericho.

And that’s the preview for tonight’s show. Follow along here, and join us on Instagram and Twitter. Enjoy the show!

This week’s broadcast of AEW Dynamite opens with Jim Ross, Excalibur, Tony Schiavone, and Dave Brown. Ross mentions that today would have been Elvis Presley’s birthday, and they are indeed in Memphis. Tonight they will pay tribute to Memphis wrestling legends.

“Hangman” Adam Page & Kenny Omega Vs. Private Party

We start the match with Page and Mark Quen. They lock-up and the fans are chanting for Hangman.

The camera abruptly cuts backstage to find PAC holding Michael Nakazawa in the Rings of Saturn as officials try to pull him off. PAC yells that Omega did this, that he will continue to do this until he gets his rematch.

Riho climbs onto the apron but the bald woman pulls Riho down and throws her into the barricade. Statlander hits her with a suicide dive, then one to Awesome Kong for good measure. Brandi Rhodes comes down and argues with Statlander. Luther, the Japanese wrestling “legend”, comes from under the ring and grabs Statlander, allowing Kong to steamroll her. Riho then climbs to the top rope and dives onto Luther at ringside – the referee doesn’t care as per usual.

Riho and Statlander get back in the ring and restart their match. Riho slams Statlander for a two-count, then Kris hits a powerbomb for a near-fall. Statlander lifts Riho into a Tombstone position but Kong swipes her feet and Riho lands on top of her to score the pinfall.

Christopher Daniels Vs. Sammy Guevara

This match gets underway and they lock-up, with Sammy taking a wrist. Shoulder-tackle from Daniels, then catches Sammy with an arm-drag. Daniels has more years wrestling experience than Guevara has been alive. Another arm-drag, hip-toss, and a scoop slam from Daniels.

Guevara back-tracks to the corner and Daniels chops the chest. Guevara uses the referee to sneak a cheap shot, then hit a jumping stomp to Daniels. A backslam earns Sammy a two-count, then he chokes Daniels using the ropes. Guevara does a Ric Flair strut, then takes a side headlock. Daniels fights up but Sammy connects with an enziguiri.

Guevara takes to the top and looks for a 450 but Daniels moves. Daniels hits an exploder suplex, followed by a back body drop, dropkick, and a clothesline. Blue thunder bomb earns a two-count for Daniels, then he looks for Angel’s Wings but Guevara counters and hits a running knee and a shooting star press for a near-fall. They exchange pinfall attempts before taking each other out with stereo lariats.

Sammy misses a splash and gets caught with an STO. Pentagon Jr. comes onto the ramp and addresses Daniels, asking if he can hit the Arabian moonsault – the move Daniels botched a few weeks ago. Guevara uses the distraction to superkick Daniels and get the win.

Winner: Sammy Guevara

After the match, Dark Order come out. Evil Uno addresses Christopher Daniels and says he’s one of the all-time greats. A man whose fingerprints are all over professional wrestling in the modern era. And a man who, had he not met 15 years ago, he wouldn’t be here himself. They get to the ring and Uno says AEW unfortunately does not see Daniels as the lucrative talent that he does. And these fans say Daniels has lost a step. But he can bring him back from the brink. He hands Daniels a mask and he considers putting it on but then throws it at him. The Order beat on Daniels until out come Kazarian and Sky, followed by the Young Bucks. The five of them clean the ring.
