Welcome to Ringside News’ live results coverage of AEW Dynamite.
Tonight’s show will see Cody once again defend his TNT Championship in an open challenge. For the first time we don’t know who will answer the call, but it seems far too early for him to drop the title. So don’t expect any big names.
The AEW Tag Team Championships will also be on the line tonight. Against the number one ranking team you say? Why no, of course not. Because as much as AEW likes to tell you wins and losses matter, they definitely do not. QT Marshall and Dustin Rhodes are getting said title shot, who are ranked second with a record of 5-0, four of which matches happened on AEW Dark. Meanwhile Evil Uno and Stu Grayson, with a 6-0 record, are not even in contention.
And to continue on from the dumb ranking topic, Le Sex Gods battle Best Friends with an AEW Tag Title shot on the line at Fyter Fest. Elsewhere, MJF will wrestle Billy Gunn, Superbad Death Squad faces The Young Bucks, and Anna Jay returns to action.
And that’s the preview for tonight’s AEW Dynamite. It’s a tag team heavy card tonight. So if that’s your thing, you can get excited. Follow along here for the live results and enjoy the show!
This week’s Dynamite opens with Kenny Omega coming to the ring to defend the tag titles. Everyone else is already in the ring.

Le Sex Gods are interviewed backstage and Jericho says he’s after Orange Cassidy because he interrupted them twice. Jericho says they beat Cassidy to a pulp. And tonight they’re gonna beat Best Friends and get a title shot, because they’re blood brothers. And blood is thicker than orange juice.
Tony Schiavone is with Britt Baker at ringside but she refuses to do an interview because Tony said some other girl was rising the ranks. Britt instructs her helper to drive off in her wheelchair cart, but Big Swole is behind the wheel and she says “where to doctor?”, then drives off.

We’re back with Cody in the ring, and he says it’s time for the open challenge. Cody says he doesn’t have Kenny, Hangman, or the Bucks, at his side. He wonders if he’s even in The Elite anymore. But that’s neither he nor there, he introduces Arn Anderson.
Anderson takes the microphone and says sometimes you have to listen to that little voice. He says he knows Cody can beat Jake Hager but the timing isn’t right.
