Welcome to Ringside News’ live results for AEW Dynamite, just two weeks from the next big PPV event.
Tonight is set to be a rather monumental episode of Dynamite, with Cody facing Wardlow in a steel cage. This is one of the prerequisite demands that MJF has for facing Cody at the PPV. In Wardlow’s first televised match, Cody must defeat him in AEW’s first cage match. Suffice to say there’s a lot riding on this one.
However that isn’t the only marquee match tonight, as Hangman Page and Kenny Omega put their tag titles on the line against The Lucha Bros. Why this match is happening is beyond me, seeing as Pentagon and Fenix haven’t won a match in 2020 and AEW’s rankings are supposed to mean something. Regardless, we can expect another fast-paced spot fest and the Champions seem destined to retain.
The only other announced matches tonight will see Jon Moxley face Jeff Cobb, as well as a Tag Team Battle Royale to determine the number one contenders. And that’s the preview. Let us know what you’re excited to see and follow along here, as well as on Instagram and Twitter. Enjoy the show!
The huge multi-tag battle royale to determine the number one contenders kicks off the show.
The match begins with all the teams on the outside of the ring, then they all slide in and start brawling. The first noteworthy event of the match comes when Scorpio Sky of SCU comes off the top rope and knocks everyone down – literally everyone.
Jack Evans of Hybrid2 goes to the top and he hits a twisting moonsault but gets caught by everyone and thrown out. Evans is out by Angelico is still in the match, so TheHybrid2 are still in contention. Isiah Kassidy and Mark Quen team to hit Silly String. SCU hit The Blade with a double team move, then Angelico as well. Alex Reynolds and Mark Silver attack SCU but the former Champions take them down with lariats.
The Dark Order appear in the crowd and taunt Sky and Kazarian, saying the Exalted One is near. The distraction allows Silver and Reynolds to tip them over and out!

Just as they’re about to hug, The Butcher and The Blade throw them out…but Trent landed on the shoulders of Orange Cassidy and he helps him back into the ring.
Matt Jackson sends The Blade over but he hangs on, so Matt teams with Trent to dropkick him out. We’re down to five men and four teams – the only team left whole is Santana and Ortiz. Matt and Trent work together to take out the heels, then they hug! The Butcher had enough however, and he drops them both with a double lariat.
