AEW DYNAMITE RESULTS AND LIVE BLOG FOR FEB. 5
I’m a tiny smidge late thanks to the wonderful city of Philadelphia’s public transport but I’m in place and we’re not missing any of the action!
Chris Jericho, Sammy Guevera, and Jake Hager join commentary for our opening match.
Jon Moxley vs. Ortiz
Off the ropes, Moxley with a lariat and Ortiz rolls to the floor where Santana gives him a brief pep talk. Jon follows him on the floor, chair in hand, ditching it on his way to the ring, catch the boot, no dice. Mox with knees, off the ropes, tripped up by Santana and Angel is able to hit an enzuigiri and follow it with a DDT and a falling splash!
Inner Circle men taking Jon to the floor, whipping him into the barricade, biting him and then putting him into the steel steps! Back inside, choking Moxley in the corner, raking his feet across his face, raking the eyes. Sitout powerbomb, only two, off the ropes and Jon gets a double leg and right into the figure four leglock! Angel slips out, Mox puts him to the floor and dives on Santana!
Jon throws Ortiz over the barricade, back inside, clubbing, off the ropes, Moxley hits the Bossman Slam for two! Elbow to the eyes, off the ropes, back body drop puts Mox on the floor... TOPE CON GIRO! Back inside, big splash gets a nearfall, fisherman suplex into the bridge... NOPE! Jockeying for position, Moxley snaps one off...
Jon Moxley wins by pinfall with Paradigm Shift.
Post-match, Mox gets attacked but fends it off and hits a Paradigm Shift on Santana! He holds up the car keys and Jericho is apoplectic! He holds it up, mouths “an eye for an eye”... AND STABS SANTANA IN THE EYE WITH THE KEY TO THE FORD!
Moxley goes and chills with the crowd while medics tend to Santana.
Commentary hypes up the rest of tonight’s show.
Best Friends make their entrance alongside Orange Cassidy to send us to break.

Big hug, Rainmaker zoom, setting up Strong Zero but Sky breaks it up with a boot...
SCU win by pinfall with a Yoshi Tonic from Frankie Kazarian on Chuck Taylor.
Post-match, the Dark Order attack! Evil Uno strolls down to ringside while all his goons beat the four men in the ring down. Orange Cassidy gets up on the apron and squares up with all six men! Uno begs off and offers him up a mask! He turns it down and Stu Grayson knees his head off! Christopher Daniels makes the save but the Dark Order back off!
We get a video package about Cody Rhodes getting whipped later tonight plus commentary from Tazz about how hard it’s gonna be to watch.

Tijeras gets Sakazaki back in, pop up top, diving seated senton but she waits for Baker to get up. Britt heads to the floor... MAGICAL GIRL SPLASH! Back inside, trading forearms, rolling elbow, off the ropes but Baker hits her with a superkick!
Fisherman neckbreaker... NOPE! Looking for Lockjaw, pulling the hair, Yuka thinks fast...
Yuka Sakazaki wins by pinfall with a crucifix pin.
Post-match, Baker gets the ring bell and hammers Sakazaki across the back of the head with it! She drags Yuka over and makes her bite the bottom rope... AND STOMPS HER IN THE BACK OF THE HEAD! SHE’S GOT LOCKJAW IN!
Butcher and the Blade (Andy Williams & Pepper Parks) & Lucha Brothers (Pentagon, Jr. & Rey Fenix) vs. the Elite (“Hangman” Adam Page, Kenny Omega, Matt Jackson, & Nick Jackson)
The Elite with the early advantage, working Parks over, quick tags, Page keeping his distance and the match breaks down when the rest of the heels get sick of waiting and come in. Williams eats a triple dropkick and we go to break as dives break out.
Back from commercial, Nick lays Fenix out with a roundhouse kick and hits a tandem move on both Brothers! Back inside, Fenix dives and Matt hits a set of rolling northern lights suplexes on him with the last one hitting Pentagon! Tag to Omega, up top but Fenix hits an arm drag! Penta with a lungblower, Rey gets jackson in a Gory Special with Kenny trapped and Penta hits a missile dropkick on Omega!

Sling Blade from Pentagon, Jr., underhooks, Fenix with a stomp and a tope...
Butcher and the Blade & Lucha Brothers win by pinfall with a double-stomp assisted package piledriver from the Lucha Brothers on “Hangman” Adam Page.
Post-match, the Young Bucks bicker with Page and Omega tries to play peacemaker, and we go to break.
Back from commercial, PAC is yelling about how this was supposed to be a contract signing tonight.
He doesn’t know what he has to do to get Kenny Omega’s attention— he attacked his best friend Michael Nakazawa and nothing happened, so let’s see how much Kenny cares about lovely Riho? Omega can stop it happening any minute, he just has to accept the match.
Kenny says he’s got the match, and PAC says he’s no monster, he wouldn’t attack a woman... but she’s a beast. NYLA ROSE ATTACKS RIHO AND LAYS HER OUT!
We get a Darby Allin video wherein he shoots a flamethrower at cutouts of Chris Jericho and Sammy Guevara.
Kip Sabian makes his entrance to send us to break.
Joey Janela vs. Kip Sabian
Janela hot out the gates, windmill punches and stomps in the corner, whip reversed, Sabian ducks a lariat, ducks the backfist, slide under, enzuigiri connects and lays Joey out! Sidestep the charge, chops in the corner, charging forearms and a back suplex gets Janela a two count. Snapmare into a shoot kick to the back from Kip, the Bad Boy rises up and returns the favor!
Sleeper Hold from Sabian, Joey gets out, back body drop to the apron, slingshot dropkick takes Kip’s legs out from under him! Sabian ducks the followup and hits a legsweep that puts the Bad Boy face-first into the steel steps! Penelope Ford smashes his face into the steel steps as well! And so we go to break.
Back form commerical, passing Sabian to the apron, Janela dives on him! Suplexing Kip on the floor, back inside, a nearfall, jockeying for position, superkick gets a lungblower, Alarm Clock knee and a right hand to follow it up! Joey snaps off a BRUTAL looking Death Valley Driver... ONLY A NEARFALL! Ford makes the difference...
Kip Sabian wins by pinfall with a handful of tights.
Backstage, Chris Jericho cuts a promo berating Jon Moxley for taking Santana’s eye and promising that he’ll pay.
Santana takes the mic and says it’s no secret that he’s had the worst month of his life and Mox threw gasoline on the flames. Try to take his eyes? He’ll go eye for an eye, and we’ll go to break.
Back from commercial, “Hangman” Adam Page tries to duck an interview but the Young Bucks come up to yell at him.
They bicker and the Bucks take Page’s beer, but it turns out he’s got a whole pitcher.
Commentary hypes up next week’s show.
Dustin Rhodes gets a promo about how he believes in Cody and he’s gonna make it through these lashes just fine.
Maxwell Jacob Friedman makes his entrance, accompanied by Wardlow as always.
Cody Rhodes makes his entrance, and we go to break.
Back from commercial, Rhodes is taking his shirt off in order to take his lashes.
Friedman says his belt is far too nice to touch Cody, so he wants his belt. Rhodes takes it off and gives it to him, and the lashes begin after a fakeout. MJF takes his jacket off after the first and the Butcher, the Blade, and the Bunny come to the stage, as do Kip Sabian, Sammy Guevara, and Dr. Britt Baker, DMD. The second lash, Cody gets in his face and Max taunts him.
Third lash, and Rhodes buckles, crumbling into the ropes! Arn Anderson makes his way to ringside. MJF takes his shirt off and jaws at Arn, telling him he can’t help. The fourth lash connects and again Cody crumples! Dustin Rhodes makes his way out and gets in the ring, jawing at Max. Wardlow gets between them and MJF says he might want to take the rest, but that’s not how it works, and Cody has to take all of them!
The lashes come hot and heavy and Friedman screams at Rhodes to quit as the Young Bucks come down to ringside! They check in with Cody and MJF winds up another lash but Wardlow asks for the belt... WARDLOW WHIPS CODY AND HIS BACK IS A RAW MESS! Brandi Rhodes comes down to ringside now, she gives her husband a pep talk and he rises to his feet... AND TAKES THE TENTH AND FINAL LASH ACROSS HIS CHEST!
MJF gets one last shot in and he and Wardlow run away quick as they can through the crowd!
That’s the show, folks.
