AEW DYNAMITE RESULTS AND LIVE BLOG FOR OCT. 28
Where will I be tomorrow? Will I beg or will I borrow? I don’t care... I don’t care anyway. Come on, come on the time is right, the man is evil and that is right. I told you! Ah yes I told you, I have to liveblog this here pro wrestling show for you, folks.
The show opens with Wardlow and Maxwell Jacob Friedman being interviewed.
MJF says if Wardlow wins the tourney and beats the champ, he’ll actually be champion, because per his contract with Wardlow he owns everything he owns. Wardlow grits his teeth and smiles through it.
Sammy Guevara rolls up to get in Friedman’s face and Max fires back by telling him he shouldn’t bother cutting promos. Sammy goes nose-to-nose and gets threatening and backs off.
“Hangman” Adam Page vs. Wardlow (AEW World Championship #1 Contender’s Tournament Semifinals)
Wardlow with the lead early on, using his strength advantage to overpower Page repeatedly. Hangman uses his cunning and speed to hang Mr. Mayhem up and send him to the floor, but he gets caught on a plancha and has to slip out and throw Wardlow into the ringpost.
Even that isn’t enough to turn the momentum, though, because Wardlow spears him through the barricade! Mr. Mayhem happy to take the countout but Page beats the count and returns to the ring. Wardlow presses the attack, beating on him in the ring at length.
Adam desperate to stay in the fight, throwing strikes wherever he can but he gets planted with a Doctor Bomb that nearly ends it! Page gets his opening and counters a chokeslam into a cross armbar in the ropes, but he’s not out of the woods yet and Mr. Mayhem throws him around some more through the pain.
Trying to go strike for strike with Wardlow, thanks to the arm injury he’s able to do it briefly and lands on his feet off a German suplex! Cactus Clothesline takes the action back to the floor and Hangman follows it up with the Orihara Moonsault! Back inside, running shooting starcomes up empty and Wardlow counters Buckshot!
Mr. Mayhem hits the F-10 but wily Adam Page rolls to the floor and denies him the win. Jockeying for position in the turnbuckles, Page works the arm over more and comes off the top with the avalanche fallaway slam! Buckshot connects once but only staggers him so Page goes to the floor again...
“Hangman” Adam Page wins by pinfall with Buckshot.
We get a promo from Jon Moxley about how his match against Eddie Kingston is personal and he is going to put him in his place.
Eddie Kingston makes his entrance surrounded by his family to send us to break.
Back from commercial, Eddie gets on the mic and complains about Jon Moxley not being here tonight when he wants to pick a fight.
Eddie Kingston vs. Matt Sydal
Feeling out in a lockup early, Sydal with heavy hands but Kingston gains control and starts grinding Matt down as we go to break.
Back from commercial, it’s still a neven fight, Sydal with a comeback, Meteora... NOPE! He overextends, Kingston cuts him off with Backfist to the Future before locking it on...
Eddie Kingston wins by submission with Saka Otoshi.
Post-match, Eddie does a bit more violence to Matt to send a message to Mox.
Excalibur interviews the Young Bucks and FTR, who are in different locations.
The Bucks disagree over how hurt Matt Jackson’s ankle is, FTR talk about how being champs is better than any dream match, and Bucks talk about how they’re good people and sometimes good people do bad things and justify themselves at length.
Excalibur goes to do a followup and FTR unmic themselves and walk off, unhappy that they’re not being asked a question. The Bucks talk about betting on themselves and announce that if they don’t win at Full Gear, they’ll never challenge for the titles again.
And on that bombshell, we go to break.
Back from commercial, Tony Schiavone and Dasha Gonzales host a town hall between Chris Jericho and Maxwell Jacob Friedman.
Y2J is joined by Ortiz, Santana, and Sammy Guevara, and we’re informed that Jake Hager is busy training for another MMA fight.
Luchasaurus asks a long question about adaptation and evolution and MJF has a chart to explain that the Inner Circle will earn a lot more money with him than not.
Dr. Britt Baker, DMD has a question about losing titles, to which MJF says the Inner Circle is gonna win more titles with him than not.
“Pretty” Peter Avalon just wants to shoot his shot and asks to join the Inner Circle, which gets him laughed off-stage.
Eric Bischoff has a long complicated question, during which he calls Jericho a prima donna and Chris won’t stop trying to fire back, so Schiavone tells him to shut up. MJF complains to try and avoid answering a question about stabbing the Inner Circle in the back, but pressed by Jericho, Max turns it around on him.
Week after week he’s made it clear that he checks every box, and what does he have to do? Jericho says he hasn’t beat him, but he’s going to give him a chance to do just that at Full Gear. MJF vs. Y2J one on one, and if Max wins, he’s in the Inner Circle.
Friedman says he’ll do whatever it takes to win... anything. Ortiz tells him to shut up and he doesn’t have a shot to get in with him or Sammy. And next week, he wants a tag match between them and MJF and Wardlow!
We get a recap of Will Hobbs winning on Dark last night and Team Taz get a promo spot about their efforts to recruit him, and so we go to break.
Cody Rhodes (c) vs. Orange Cassidy (AEW TNT Championship Lumberjack Match)
Cassidy laying the technical grappling on out the gates, trying to confound Rhodes. It doesn’t work for long and Cody takes control of the match. Orange with a delayed vertical, action back and forth as Rhodes rolls to the floor for a breather and back in when Orange comes out.
Best Friends snap zoom hug, the lumberjacks fail to do their job and Cody starts working the leg with a vicious dragon screw in the ropes! Trading shots, Cassidy off the top, turning on the speed but Cody’s got counters! Figure four attempt blocked, Rhodes to the floor and he barely escapes the lumberjacks only to run right into a tornado DDT!

Post-match, the lumberjacks continue brawling as Darby Allin watches from the rafters like some kind of Skateboard Sting.
And so we go to break.

Omega cocky in the early goings, getting Penta hot and revealing the AAA Mega Championship around his waist to taunt his brother Fenix! Finally he takes his t-shirt off and gets into gear as we get a thunderous chop exchange and a little Cero Miedo. Penta lighting him up with kick and a big lungblower out of the corner puts him on the back foot.
Penta el Zero M with a big tope con giro and he comes up lame in the knee as we go to break.
Back from commercial, Penta bringing it home with hard strikes only for Kenny to snap off a Frankensteiner! To the floor with the Terminator dive for a followup! A plancha from Penta! Back inside, ducking and dodging, Penta gets a pump kick and a slingshot Sling Blade for two!
Jockeying for position in the turnbuckles, Omega trapped in the Tree of Woe for the double stomp but he kicks out! Kenny with the Dragon suplex, another one, Penta blocks a third and goes back to striking! V-Trigger connects, powerbomb into a second V-Trigger almost does it!
Off the ropes, another V-Trigger, electric chair, Penta fights out and Omega kicks him into the turnbuckles! V-Trigger to the back of the head, Dragon superplex blocked, Kenny decides to go even more dangerous but Penta turns the tide and hits a flip piledriver on the stage!
Back in the ring, package piledriver... OMEGA KICKS OUT! Penta wants the Here It Is Driver, Kenny reverses out of it but Penta gets an enzuigiri off! Off the ropes, Omega cuts him off with the V-Trigger and calls for it but again Penta struggles out of the electric chair!
