Welcome to Ringside News’ live results coverage of AEW Dynamite.
Tonight’s episode of Dynamite is the go-home show ahead of Double Or Nothing this weekend. Jon Moxley faces 10 from the Dark Order tonight, before facing Brodi Lee for the AEW Championship. Lee still has Moxley’s belt, so suffice to say Jon will mean business tonight.
Other matches tonight include Matt Hardy Vs. Sammy Guevara, Nyla Rose Vs. Britt Baker, MJF Vs. Marko Stunt, Rey Fenix Vs. Orange Cassidy, and a sit-down between Arn Anderson and Jake ‘The Snake’ Roberts, which should be pretty cool.
And that’s the preview for this go-home episode of Dynamite. Follow along on the Ringside News app, and enjoy the show!
This week’s AEW opens with a limousine arriving at the arena and out steps The Inner Circle. An interviewer approaches and Jericho says “wait until you see what we do to The Elite tonight.” The interviewer asks what’s gonna happen and they berate him and walk off.
It’s time for our first match and Brodi Lee comes out with 10. Brodi says he wants to address the viewers at home. He asks 10 to take a knee and he does so. Lee says maybe we cannot relate to him because of the kind of athlete he is; but he is no God, just a man. A man who has come into possession of the AEW World Championship. He operates at an Elite level and the Dark Order are the lions of AEW. Results speak for themselves and come Saturday, he has to win. Not only to satisfy his own hunger, but to pay the loyalty of his men. Lee promotes 10 to a High Knight of the Dark Order, then instructs him to hurt Jon Moxley.
The bell rings and Moxley hits a running high knee. Moxley catches a kick and hits a capture suplex. Moxley hits a release suplex, then stomps 10 in the corner and trash talks him. Moxley argues with the referee, allowing 10 to hit him from behind. Jon rolls to the apron, where 10 hits a pump kick.
10 sends Moxley into the barricade, then hits a back suplex on the apron. 10 gets Moxley back in the ring and hits a ripcord cutter. Moxley hits a Paradigm Shift out of nowhere but doesn’t go for the cover. Moxley hits a piledriver, followed by a second Paradigm Shift for the win.
After the match, Moxley goes out and brings a few chairs into the ring. He gets on the microphone and says he’s going to give Brodi 10 seconds to come out and correct his mistake, or he’ll break 10’s arm. Moxley wraps 10’s arm inside a chair and starts counting but Lee appears on the screen. Lee says Moxley doesn’t call the shots and this Saturday night he’s going to put Moxley to bed. He says Moxley made this personal and we all have to make sacrifices, so he’s leaving. Moxley says he’ll see him on Saturday, then uses a chair to hit 10’s arm inside the other chair.
Jim Ross makes mention of the tragic death of former WWE Superstar Shad Gaspard.
The match gets underway and MJF uses his strength to throw Marko around. MJF applies a bearhug but Marko claps his ears to break free. Marko ducks an elbow and attempts a sunset flip but MJF lifts him up by the throat and throws him overhead.
Stunt fires some kicks and a slap but gets knocked inside out with a lariat. MJF unloads right hands on Stunt, and Wardlow chokes him using the bottom rope. MJF throws Marko by the hair, then poses like Hogan. Marko hits a hurricanrana than sends MJF into the buckles, followed by two dropkicks. MJF avoids a third dropkick but Stunt hits him anyway.
The action spills from the ring and MJF runs into the steel steps after missing Marko. Stunt looks for a suicide dive but gets drilled with a forearm. MJF hits a shoulderbreaker, followed by the Salt of the Earth for the win.
MJF gets on the horn and says Marko lasted longer than he expected, then says nobody wants to kiss Marko but he can kiss the ring. MJF punches Marko with the ring on, then Jungle Boy and Luchasauras come out and run them off.
Jake Robert makes his entrance, followed by Arn Anderson. Tony Schiavone is mediating this conversation. Roberts says this weekend Cody will find out that Lance Archer is a mean son of a bitch. He then asks if Arn is out of the home and he’s looking thick.
Anderson says that they’re two credible guys who can sell anything. But even sitting across this desk he can see the evil in Jake’s eyes. He says he always knew the snake was nothing but a distraction. Roberts says he’s been to hell and back, so one more trip down the road with Anderson wouldn’t be so bad. Arn calls for decorum.
Arn mentions that Mike Tyson will be there to present the TNT Championship to either Cody or Lance Archer. He says as far as he knows, Tyson will have free reign to see or do as he pleases, so Roberts better watch it. Roberts says he has promised the first shot at Tyson to Archer, and he knows he can knock him out. But it’s fine because he’s just happy that bimbo Brandi isn’t presenting the title.
Arn praises Cody and says he has turned this business on his head, but he needs to know he’s earned his success and this TNT Championship is his way to do it. Arn says we all know Jake is doing DDP Yoga and that’s good because he needs to be limber for when he spinebusters his ass. Jake jumps up and flips the table but out comes three referee to get between them.
We get an “inside look” at Darby Allin. Which amounted to 20 seconds of him standing around in black and white with some acoustic guitar playing.

Backstage, Alex Marvez approaches Moxley and he says that everything eventually comes to violence in life. Moxley says it only gets hurt from here and it’s going to get bad at Double or Nothing. Moxley says he is putting Lee to sleep and when he wakes up he will have lost his match, whatever power he thinks he has, and all he will have left is a bunch of creepy guys in masks to repair his shattered ego.
