It’s Wednesday and you know what that means. AEW Dynamite will go down tonight and Ringside News has got you covered with live play-by-play results coverage.
Start time for AEW Dynamite is at 8:00 PM EST. Match-by-match highlights and results from the show will take place on this very page. Feel free to leave any reactions in the comment section below. The card for tonight is as follows:
We kick off with CM Punk sat cross legged in the ring to huge “CM Punk” chants. Punk says he is Straight Edge and that means he’s better than you, does that sound familiar? He said those words 20 years ago and they became the foundation of his career. He could be proud that those word have inspired then next generation of stars. Some guys in the back became wrestlers because of him, and then there’s MJF…
“MJF tries to walk like me, talk like me and when he beat me in my home town, twice, you would think I would be furious. But Max, I am proud of you.” MJF fancies himself and Piper in Portland, Bret in Canada, Punk in Chicago, buts he’s just shitty little Max from shitty little Long Island. He won the Diamond ring with help from other people. The rematch will happen at Revolution. It could be a Cage match but Max could still run. Punk says he has won more Cage Matches than he has lost. Then he thinks about the matches he has lost, the toughest matches he has ever been a part off, then he thinks of Piper in Portland. Punk unwraps a box and reveals a dog collar chain and asks Max if he will be his Valentines. Punk asks Max to come out here right now.
MJF’s music hits and the man himself makes his entrance. Punk says take it all in. He pulls out a picture of MJF as a child getting an autograph from CM Punk. That was the greatest day in MJF’s life but to him it was just another Friday. March 6th the ring will be stained with MJF’s blood. MJF seems unnerved and leaves without saying a word.

Danielson gets a mic and says he came here to teach Moriarty a lesson in violence, did he pass? Or did he fail? He doesn’t trust the American public with anything. He asks Moxley to team with him to create a new AEW. He wants an answer. Moxley’s music hits…
Moxley casually walks down through the crowd. Moxley gets a mic and says a decade ago he was a lot like Moriarty, a lot like the kids in the back. He was young when he took a shot at taking down the American Dragon. He stood face to face with the man they called the best wrestler in the world. He fought tooth and nail but he came up short. Over the years had had more shots but he has never beaten Bryan Danielson.
Finally get gets a chance to slay the dragon he never could. But it turns out Danielson doesn’t want to fight him, he wasn’t to join forces with him. How awesome could it be? All the arms we could snap, all the heads we could cave in. All the things they could create, give something back to this business. He couldn’t think of a good reason to say no…
Is the only reason Danielson wants to stand by his side because he doesn’t want to stand across the ring form him? As Moxley would do to him what he has done to everybody else. If that’s the case then he has already beaten Bryan Danielson. Did Danielson offer a team up because of what he wanted to create or because he was afraid. He isn’t saying yes and he isn’t saying no. He doesn’t stand side by side with nobody until he bleeds with them first. Moxley leaves through the crowd.
