AEW DYNAMITE RESULTS AND LIVE BLOG FOR NOV. 4
He’s a fairy feller! The fairy folk have gathered round the new moon shine to see the feller crack a nut at night’s noon time. To swing his axe he swears, as it climbs he dares to deliver the master-stroke, but me? I’m just here to liveblog this pro wrestling show for you, folks.
The show opens into the intro video.
Chris Jericho is interviewed before joining the commentary booth.
He wants to give some credit to Jake Hager for winning his MMA fight, pointing out all his battle scars when Maxwell Jacob Friedman and his bodyguard Wardlow roll up.
MJF says he doesn’t want the tension between them to poison their friendship, and tonight Chris is gonna get a front row seat to prove that he does belong in the Inner Circle. Y2J says something is missing from his “total package” and he talks up how his associates have the killer instinct and are crazy in the head, willing to do anything to win.
He thinks Max is a little soft, even, to which Friedman tells him to just watch.
Inner Circle (Ortiz & Sammy Guevara) vs. Maxwell Jacob Friemdan & Wardlow
Wardlow and Ortiz to start, MJF’s bodyguard with the advantage and they cut the Inner Circle man off at some length. Working his arm over, eventually Ortiz gets the tag and Guevara comes in hot, using his speed to keep Mr. Mayhem off-balance, tagging him with a crescent kick! MJF legal, Sammy keeps the pressure on, big corkscrew topes take both guys out!
Ortiz in, going back to work on the arm, Sammy back in, Max pokes his eye and poses for the camera! Off the ropes, Guevara with a big knee strike, Argentine backbreaker dropped into a knee to the face... WARDLOW BREAKS IT UP! Inner Circle with double-teams to take Mr. Mayhem out of the equation, but he comes back in a big way after a Tower of Doom!
Sammy hits a springboard 450 splash to the floor, but Matt Hardy throws a chair at his face from the crowd under a Serpentico mask! Back inside, Friedman takes advantage...
Maxwell Jacob Friedman & Wardlow win by submission with Salt of the Earth from MJF on Ortiz.
Post-match, MJF attacks Jericho on commentary and beats him down! The Inner Circle makes the save and a grin is plastered on Y2J’s face as he clearly likes the kid’s fire.
Commentary hypes up the rest of tonight’s proceedings for us.
We get footage from an interview with Kenny Omega from earlier today.
Tony Schiavone congratulates him on his home and his dog but Omega admits that neither are actually his. He talks about his path through the #1 contender’s tournament and how he thinks it’s great to be fighting his former tag partner Adam Page, a man he respects quite a bit.
Trent? makes his entrance, accompanied by Chuck Taylor and Orange Cassidy, to send us to break.
Miro vs. Trent?
A shoving match breaks out before the bell, but referee Bryce Remsburg is able to keep tensions down long enough for introductions. Miro makes the mistake of running Trent’s mom down and we get a dropkick and the bell!
Beretta in hot with forearms, tornado DDT blocked, duck a lariat, boot up in the corner but Miro yanks him out into a Saito Suplex! Falling elbow, a two count, boots in the corner, a clubbing lariat, the Bulgarian Brute running hot. Kip Sabian and Chuck Taylor brawl up into the infrastructure, Miro with a whip into a corner body avalanche, Trent fires back with chops on chops!
Tornado DDT blocked a second time, countered into an overhead belly-to-belly suplex and Miro throws him out of the ring to send us to break!
Back from commercial, Miro in control, off the ropes with a leaping chest kick! Whip across, the Bulgarian Brute locks the bear hug on! I can hardly bear it! Trent boxes his ears to escape, hits a jawbreaker, right hands, Miro shrugging his strikes off, but a missed body avalanche leads to Beretta taking him off his feet with a lariat for one!
Duck a roundhouse, half nelson suplex connects and Trent is fired up! Miro refocuses, slapping the mat, stomping, lying in wait, but Beretta sidesteps the kick, folding press, only two! Low-bridge sends the Bulgarian to the floor, Trent off the ropes, tope con giro! Back inside, the tornado DDT hits this time!
Waiting for Miro to rise... Busaiku knee only gets two! Beretta goes to springboard in but he slips and Miro capitalizes with a kick to the face! Stomp to the back...
Miro wins by submission with Game Over.
Post-match, he locks Game Over in a second time but Chuck Talory makes the save and beats him down! Kip Sabian hits the right after and saves his best man!
Miro gets on the mic and tells Beretta he has no manners, blaming his mother... ORANGE CASSIDY DIVES ON HIM!
We get footage of Jim Ross having a sitdown interview with “Hangman” Adam Page earlier today.
Page is drinking, of course, and he feels very good about his chances on Saturday. He knows all his moves and how to reverse them, and JR thinks he’s nervous. Page admits that he is.
And so we go to break.
Back from commercial, we get a video package breaking FTR vs. Young Bucks down for us.
Team Taz comes out and Taz informs Will Hobbs that he’s not gonna wait much longer for an answer.
But he’s not here for that, he’s here to tell us what he did today. For not one, not two, but for three hours, he sat outside Tony Khan’s office trying to get two minutes of his precious time, and then a production assistant comes up to him, saying “TK” is busy dealing with people who are fighting at Full Gear.
So Taz is out here with a live mic to talk to him on his TV show, and Brian Cage is 10-1 and ranked number one in AEW’s rankings. Who betta than Cage? And Ricky Starks? He’s won ten of his last eleven matches, and he’s not even in the top five? What kind of horse shit is that? Ricky gets on the mic and says he’s hit it out of the park every time.
He has a hard time figuring out why he can’t even be ranked, but hear him out— 1+1 is 2, and that makes sense, but what doesn’t make sense is Team Taz not having a match on Saturday. Taz puts Rhodes/Allin over as being a great match and says Darby and Cody are both spoiled and given everything they want.
He calls Rhodes out, telling him he lives by the motto do the work? Team Taz is getting worked, and they’re gonna be at Full Gear.
Matt Hardy and Private Party make their entrance and Sammy Guevara attacks Hardy! Private Party make the save and we go to break!
Private Party (Isiah Kassidy & Marq Quen) vs. Young Bucks (Matt & Nick Jackson)
Quen and Nick to start, feeling out, trading headlocks and so on. Into a bit of lucha libre, arm drags, making tags, double-teaming Kassidy and the Bucks take control of the match! Marq gets in and turns things around, back and forth, Private Party running double-teams on Nick. Bucks not down and out long, clobbernig Quen in the corner and laying him out!
Hanging him up in the ropes, senton atomico off the top, Kassidy makes the save! Penalty Kick off the apron takes him out, the Bucks line Quen up but he counters, inverted DDT / reverse STO combination sends us to break!
Back from commercial, Quen manufactures a malfunction at the junction and Frankensteiners both Bucks! Tag to Kassidy, cleaning house, ducking and dodging, springboard blockbuster! A tornillo wipes the Bucks out on the floor, back inside, double teams, Nick kicks out! Chops and punches, Matt nursing his injured leg on the apron... GIN & JUICE CONNECTS BUT MATT FINDS THE ENERGY TO BREAK IT UP!
Dragging Nick to the corner, Marq up top, nobody home on the shooting star press and Matt spears him! Superkick takes Isiah, running knee... MARQ QUEN KICKS OUT! Matt tags in, limping, scoops him up, Meltzer Driver denied! Trading pins, Matt Jackson kicks out! Superkick caught, Nick lays Quen out with a superkick and tags in!
Drawing him up...
Young Bucks win by pinfall with the BTE Trigger on Marq Quen.
Post-match, FTR attack the Young Bucks and go after Matt Jackson’s leg! Wrapping a chair around it, putting boots to him while Tully Blanchard holds him in place, Cash Wheeler up on the second... BUT BEFORE HE CAN PILLMANIZE HIM, HANGMAN PAGE MAKES THE SAVE, DRINK IN HAND! KENNY OMEGA COMES DOWN TOO!
The Bucks jaw at FTR while Omega offers a fist bump that leads Page to turn him around and talk to him, their conversation clearly a little heated.
Kenny waves him off to send us to break.
Back from commercial, Tony Schiavone is in the ring to preside over our world title face-to-face.
Eddie Kingston enters first and berates Schiavone to do his job and hold the microphone up. Jon Moxley follows after and Eddie demands his music be cut and for Tony to get out of the ring. Kingston goes face-to-face with Mox and tells him he’s going to ruin him on Saturday and take the title to his mother and tell her the reason Eddie’s never given her a grandchild or daughter-in-law is because of pro wrestling and his chase for that title.
He had to sell out and become everything he hated, and it’s too late for him, but he’s taking the title. Moxley pulls the mic up to his face and says he’d rather have four quarters than a hundred pennies, because loyalty is a bitch and he’s been burned time and again, but he never ever thought he’d be burned by him. He was so happy for him when he signed the contract.
He was happy for Eddie’s mother, whose table he sat at, who he said grace with, who he promised he’d look after Eddie with his life but he guesses he broke that promise. He believes the loudest one in the room is the weakest, and Kingston has been real loud lately, and why? That’s not him, he’s not weak, so what’s going on?
After eighteen years he finally gets his shot, the shot he thought he’d never get, but deep down in his heart he knows he’s gonna be in the ring with the best wrestler on the planet right now and he’s gonna lose. It’s a scary thought, he gets it, to find out that after eighteen years you didn’t really deserve it after all.
And the part that makes Mox sick is that Eddie made a promise to his mother that he can’t keep. Kingston tells Moxley that he better get ready to kill him, because this is real. He practically begs Mox to take him out and when he doesn’t, he says the title is his and he walks off.
Jon says on Saturday night, Eddie will be alone with his ego and he’ll find out he’s not the man he thought he was, and he’ll say the words “I Quit.”
The promised video from PAC breaking his silence follows.
He says the funny thing about isolation is you’ve got nobody to play with. Seven months, doomed on the far side of the Atlantic, yet again a casualty of this rotten world, but he’s been there before.
And so we go to break.
Back from commercial, Natural Nightmares are interviewed about their match against Butcher and the Blade next week when the Bunny rolls up to thank QT Marshall for the gifts and tell him that his cards are maxed out. She throws the credit cards at him and Butcher and Blade attack, beating the Nightmares down!
Nyla Rose vs. Red Velvet
Velvet hot out the gates with a dropkick, a leaping heel kick, boots in the corner! Rose comes back, dragging her up one-handed and beating her down! Red out with elbows, kicks, boot up on the charge, but Nyla catches her off the top! REVOLUTION BEAST BOMB! The ending is clear, but Nyla pulls her out of the pin and sends a pointed message to Hikaru Shida...
Nyla Rose wins by pinfall with a running knee.
Post-match, Vickie Guerrero gets on the mic to mock Red Velvet and Brandi Rhodes for Velvet’s loss.
She dubs Brandi the CBSO, or chief bullshit officer, and tells her to get out of here because she has some real business here. Vickie is thankful that Tony Khan has started to listen to her, starting with Nyla Rose’s title shot on Saturday. She’s glad Shida is here, because she wants to let her know that Rose is gonna break her bones, make her cry, and win the title back.
So enjoy your last three days of being champion, she says, mock bowing and leading Hikaru to grab her by the collar! We got a brawl between champion and challenger! Referee Paul Turner barely manages to break it up.
A video package covering the life and times of the team of “Hangman” Adam Page and Kenny Omega set to the Cinderella song Don’t Know What You Got (Till It’s Gone).
We get an inscrutable Darby Allin video afterward, and see Darby chilling in the rafters like the Skateboard Sting that he is.
Dark Order make their entrance and we go to break.
Cody Rhodes & Gunn Club (Austin & Billy Gunn) vs. Dark Order (Colt “Boom Boom” Cabana, John Silver, & Ten)
Rhodes and Silver to start, trading strikes, fireman’s carry drop and a tag to Austin to work the Meat Man over. Whip to the corner, up and over, duck the knee, roll through, dropkick takes John’s leg out and a blockbuster follows for two! Tags made, Cabana in on Billy, Gunn controls him with a headlock and lays him out when he shoots him off.
Bionic Elbow connects but Billy counters the Flying Asshole into a back suplex and a two count! Ten tags in, getting into it with Austin, big spinebuster lays him out and we go to break with the Dark Order in control.
Back from commercial, the Dark Order are still working Austin Gunn over. He gets an enzuigiri on Cabana and a tag out to his dad! Billy in hot with right hands, clearing the ring and devastating the Raw Dog with a tilt-a-whirl slam! Off the ropes, Fameasser denied at first but he gets it on the second try only for Silver to break the pin up!
Cody in, snap scoop powerslam, springboard plancha takes Colt out on the floor! Passing Gunn to Ten for a ripcord bulldog... NOPE! Rhodes hurls the Meat Man out into the crowd! Billy tags Austin back in, he catches Cabana with Cross Rhodes! Shoving Ten off the ropes, hip toss into a neckbreaker...
Cody Rhodes & Gunn Club win by pinfall with Quick Draw from Austin Gunn on Ten.
Post-match, Orange Cassidy comes down and lays Silver out with the Orange Punch!
Cody Rhodes gets on the mic and says Darby Allin is saying that TNT don’t want him as the face of their network, but that’s a fiction and they’d love to have somebody of his talent as champion. And in different circumstances, Cody might love it too. He recruited Darby all by his lonesome, had to convince the other EVPs of his value.
Take one last look at the title, Allin, because Cody went to war with the empire and won, and that pisses a lot of people off. His truth contradicts lies, so stop lying. You want the TNT Championship, to be the face of AEW, to have the ace belt— here’s the problem, Darby, you’re not the ace.
Skateboard Sting merely stares on from the bleachers.
That’s the show, folks.
