AEW DYNAMITE RESULTS AND LIVE BLOG FOR NOV. 20
My hands clench the squeegee, my secular rosary; hang on to your wallet, hang on to your rings. Can’t look below me, or something might throw me, curse at the windstorms that October brings. I look in the boardroom; a modern pharaoh’s tomb. I’d gladly swap places, if they care to dive, but right now I’m here to liveblog this pro wrestling show, folks.
The show opens with commentary hyping tonight’s festivities up.
Nick Jackson vs. Rey Fenix
Circling, playing to the crowd, collar and elbow give way to a side headlock for Jackson. Shot off, shoulder block, off hte ropes, shoulder block, stalemate! They jaw at each other, Nick off the ropes, knock Fenix down, he kips up and nails the Buck with a dropkick! Off the ropes, Jackson with a kick to the face, moonsault ducks the Tiger feint kick, jockeying for position, ducking and dodging, so fast paced I can’t keep up with it, back inside for a double dropkick stalemate!
Jawing again, Nick lays an overhand chop in and Fenix fires back. Slugfest, off the ropes, handspring headbutt, springboard headbutt, Rey running hot! Knucklelock, overhand chop, multi-jump lucha arm drag and Jackson slides to the floor for a breather! Off the ropes, Nick slides back in, 540 roundhouse knocks Fenix to the floor. Jackson signals the escalera but Rey rolls out of the way and hits an Ace Crusher on the floor!
Both men slow to rise, back inside at referee Rick Knox’s count of six. Fenix with a double jump springboard senton atomico... NOPE! Block the suplex, wicked forearm from Jackson but Rey sidesteps the charge, ropewalk maneuver misses and Nick hits kicks in the corner to set up a bulldog that spikes the Lucha Brother! Running knee, seated press... STILL NO!
Superkick attempts collide, Jackson hobbled but going for a lucha arm drag, jockeying for position and it turns into a springboard Frankensteiner... SO CLOSE! Off the ropes, Fenix stops himself short and charges in, nails the Buck with a superkick, Nick gives him two back, Rey with a closing argument to the exchange and both men are left down and out as Knox makes his count.
Trading strikes, Fenix puts Jackson on the apron, stabilizing strikes, up to the second, ropewalk... FRANKENSTEINER TO THE FLOOR! Back inside, nobody home on the moonsault and Nick comes back with a series of kicks. Off the ropes, Rey catches him with the Ace Crusher... NOT HAPPENING!

Everybody except for Friedman and Cassidy gangs up on Billy and he shrugs them off before eliminating Havoc with a lariat!

We’re informed Chris Jericho has a major announcement up next and see him and Jake Hager walking backstage when they run into the Librarians and we go to break.
Back from commercial, Chris Jericho makes his entrance.
He talks about his conduct not being conducive of Le Champion, so he wanted to come out and apologize. He tries to make his apology but the words refuse to come out of his mouth and he asks Big Hurt Jake Hager to say it for him. And to show just how sorry he is, he wanted to make a big announcement here tonight-- next week in Chicago, he’s finally going to get the thank you he deserves from AEW executives, the higher ups at Time Warner, and everybody watching.
He’s sorry that the celebration is going to be in Chicago, because they have a hockey team and two baseball teams, making it better than this place we’re at here. He’s gonna have fun and games and prizes and maybe even clowns.
Scorpio Sky gets on mic and says it takes a real man, a paragon of virtue to apologize when he’s done wrong and Jericho is all of that and more... but he forgot to mention why he threw that tantrum last week. Not only did SCU defend their titles, Scorpio pinned Y2J and gave him his first loss. Sky talks up how happy the win made him and Chris says he thinks it’s cuter than Baby Yoda that Sky thinks he can beat him but he’s a tag specialist and he can’t do it again in singles.
Y2J says he’s gonna give Scorpio a singles match... next week! Kazarian tells Sky to make sure it’s non-title and Scorpio says he doesn’t deserve a title match. Jericho agrees and ends up working himself up into making it a title match... HE SHAKES SKY’S HAND AND IT’S OFFICIAL! Sky says Jericho might not think he has a chance, but maybe he’s been waiting 15 years for this opportunity and he’s gonna turn Le Champion into Le Bitch!

Post-match Sammy Guevara attacks Nick Jackson at ringside but Dustin Rhodes is here to take Proud-n-Powerful out! He wipes Guevera out for good measure!
Commentary hypes up next week’s show.
We toss to a Kenny Omega video package where he talks about not being a hardcore guy and having lost sight of who he is. He traces it all back to losing to PAC, and now he’s got a chance at revenge next week.
And so we go to break.

Off the ropes... MOX HITS THE BOSSMAN SLAM!
