MJF W/Wardlow Vs. Lee Johnson
The bell rings and MJF drops Lee with a running forearm. MJF hits a belly-to-belly and kips up. MJF stands on Johnson’s face, then hits a lariat. Johnson chops MJF, so the heel slaps him in the face. MJF tosses Lee from the ring and kicks him on the floor.
MJF powerbombs Lee on the apron, then back into the ring. MJF hits a shoulder-breaker, then goes to his submission armbreaker for the win.
MJF gets on the horn and says he’s got some serious ring rust. So he thinks he should have a warm-up match against Marko Stunt next week.
Chris Jericho W/The inner Circle Vs. Pineapple Pete
The bell rings and Jericho slaps Pete, who fires back rapid punches, forcing Y2J to the corner. Pete whips Jericho to the buckles and hits a running back elbow, then does it again. Pete looks to do it a third time but runs into a Judas Effect.
Winner: Chris Jericho
Jericho grabs a bat and says he needs to address the matter at hand: The Inner Circle Vs. The Elite. That is, if The Elite is still a thing. We Haven’t seen half of them for months. But they’re honourable, so they’re giving The Elite a chance to get their act together and face them one last time. So while the earth stands still, they’ve been busy. Jericho announced the Stadium Stampede match; a football stadium match.
Vanguard-1 comes down with an Inner Circle t-shirt hanging. Jericho says he’s got a lot of guts showing-up here. He has warrants out or Vanguard-1’s arrest. Jericho asks if they accept and “we accept” appears on the screen. Jericho asks Vanguard if he’s reconsidered joining The Inner Circle, then says it doesn’t matter because they’ve already found their sixth man: Floyd. It’s the bat, and they use it to destroy Vanguard-1. Matt Hardy comes down and lifts the remains of the drone, almost in tears.
Mike Tyson will be presenting the TNT Championship to either Cody or Lance Archer at Double or Nothing.
Brodi Lee W/Ten Vs. Christopher Daniels W/SCU
The match begins and Daniels chops Lee a few times but gets hit with a knee to the gut. Lee with an uppercut, followed by a big powerslam. Daniels rolls to the outside and Lee tosses him into the barricade. Lee gets distracted by SCU and Daniels hits an Arabian moonsault.
Back in the ring, Daniels hits an outside-in elbow drop for a one count. Lee hits a big boot. Lee hits a back body drop for a one-count and looks annoyed. Lee stands on the face of Daniels, then whips him to the ropes for a back elbow. Lee leaves the ring to stare at SCU.
Back inside Lee whips Daniels into the corner, then hits a spinning sidewalk slam for a two-count as we head to the break.
We return to see Daniels catch Lee with a DDT, followed by a series of forearms. Daniels hits a hurricanrana from the middle rope, then a running forearm in the corner. Daniels goes to the top rope while Ten distracts the referee. Lee grabs a chair as SCU attack Ten. Daniels blocks the chair shot and hits Lee with it!
Daniels then gets Lee in a submission but all hell breaks loose as SCU and Colt Cabana storm the ring to fight off the Dark Order. Daniels is distracted and Lee grabs him but Lee hits Angels Wings for a one-count! Lee lifts Daniels but he lands on his feet and hits the Best Moonsault Ever for a two-count. Daniels heads up top and jump into a powerbomb. Lee follows-up with the discus clothesline for the win.
Winner: Brodi Lee
The Dark Order come down and hand Lee the AEW World Championship but Jon Moxley comes through the crowd and starts fighting the followers. Lee leaves the ring, leaving Moxley to hit one of the followers with a Paradigm Shift. Lee left with the AEW Championship again.

Moxley gets a microphone and says he cannot suffer the disrespect. He says Brodi Lee has made a very bad decision that he will pay for, with interest. He says the AEW World Championship is more than a piece of metal and Lee will find out at Double or Nothing that there will be a hail-storm of violence. Lee will find his AEW career will end at the PPV.
And that’s it for AEW Dynamite. Head over to read our results for tonight’s NXT, and I’ll see you back here next week. Until then, stay safe.
