Leave a comment

Welcome to Ringside News’ live results of AEW Dynamite.

For the past few weeks, since the fans were shut out, Dynamite has been filled in an empty arena, but for the next two months or so the show will be emanating from QT Marshall’s gym in Georgia. But the action rolls on.

Tonight the AEW TNT Championship Tournament gets underway with Cody taking on long-time foe, Shawn Spears. Kenny Omega will team with his friend Michael Nakazawa to face Best Friends, Hikaru Shida faces Britt Baker, and Brodi Lee will be in action. Many of AEW’s biggest names couldn’t make the mass of tapings that took place, meaning we won’t be seeing the likes of Hangman Page or Nyla Rose until early June at the earliest.

And that’s all we know about tonight’s show. Well, we do know that Chris Jericho will be on commentary with Tony Schiavone for the next two months, which should be great. Follow along with the live results here and enjoy the show!


Dynamite opens with Lance Archer making his entrance, sans Jake Roberts.
