AEW DYNAMITE RESULTS AND LIVE BLOG FOR SEPT. 16
I tend the wheat field that makes your bread. I bind the sweet veal, pluck the hens that make your bed. Mother Nature and Mother Earth are two of three women who dictate what I’m worth. I’m the liveblogger, I liveblog this show all night.
The show opens with Jurassic Express in the ring for a tag match against FTR when the Young Bucks come down and lay referee Mike Posey out with a Superkick Party!
Refs swarm the ring and help their fallen comrade out while the Bucks walk off together. They go backstage and throw a stack of money at Tony Khan, intending to pay the fine they certainly just earned themselves.
FTR (Cash Wheeler & Dax Harwood) vs. Jurassic Express (“Jungle Boy” Jack Perry & Luchasaurus)
Harwood and Perry to start, collar and elbow, Dax with a wristlock, quick tag to Wheeler. Shoulder armbreaker, another tag, into an armbar but Jungle Boy reverses and takes Dax down for two. Knucklelock, Arabian Press lucha arm drag into a dropkick and Jack is running hot! Deep arm drag into a top wristlock, Jungle Boy makes the tag!
Cash tags in as well, clear the apron, northern forearm to the dinosaur man and the champs begin the process of isolating the big man but he’s able to get a well-timed lariat in and stay in the fight. Dax dives right into a powerslam... NOPE! Tag to Perry, slam into a senton, no dice and Jack grabs an armbar. Harwood whips him into the corner and drops him with a back elbow!

Knee strike connects, crucifix for two, victory roll for two! Harwood throws him into the corner, to the apron, roundhouse kick! Up topdiving crossbody, but Dax rolls through, handful of tights...

Jungle Boy returns the favor... WHEELER HAS TO BREAK IT UP! Brawling with the dinosaur, goozle, Dax off the ropes and he knocks the big guy to the floor! Folding press from Perry for two more! Harwood with an uppercut, trading shots, small package... STILL NO! Wheeler sidesteps a dive on the floor and Luchasaurus goes into the crowd!
Perry dives on Cash, back to the apron, brawling with Dax, shoulder thrust, sunset flip, Wheeler counters, Tully Blanchard with the assist...
FTR win by pinfall with a side press and a bunch of illegal leverage from Dax Harwood on “Jungle Boy” Jack Perry.
Alex Marvez is backstage where Matt Hardy is screaming agony on the floor, clutching his knee. Private Party are there and offer comment, saying they were talking strategy and then he got attacked out of nowhere. Chris Jericho and Jake Hager roll up to mock Hardy and threaten Private Party, and we go to break.
Back from commercial, Kenny Omega has joined the commentary desk.

We get a video package breaking down Best Friends vs. Proud-N-Powerful.
Maxwell Jacob Friedman makes his entrance, flanked by Wardlow, to send us to break.
Maxwell Jacob Friedman vs. Shawn Dean
MJF wins by pinfall.
Post-match, Friedman gets on commentary and talks about how honest he is and how Jon Moxley cheated. From here on out, since he should be undefeated and he should be world champ, he wants to be referred to as the undefeated, undisputed, uncrowned world champion of All Elite Wrestling. He makes Justin Roberts say it and say it with gusto.
He says he’s a lone wolf but maybe it’s time to join himself a wolf pack, but no matter what he does, at the end of the day, he’s still better than us and we know it.
Taz gets a video package breaking Ricky Starks’ trademark maneuvers down.
Eddie Kingston is in the ring with his stablemates and he gets on the mic and says he’s got three points to make.
Number one, he never lost the battle royal. Look up the rules, folks, he should be getting something.
Number two, they are a family, they’re not a stable or a faction, they’re a family, and when families fight, most of the time they go out to dinner, have a little therapy, but not them. They’re a family of violence, so they get violent, and they are agents of chaos.
He signals Andy Williams and Pepper Parks to pull folks out of the crowd and beat them down, throwing some poor schmuck in the ring to get double superkicked by the Lucha Brothers.
That was to get his family ready, you see.
Number three, he tells Blade it’s time to get his house in order, and we go to break.
Inner Circle (Chris Jericho & Jake Hager) vs. Private Party (Isiah Kassidy & Marq Quen)
Hager and Quen to start, power vs. speed, drop toehold and Kassidy comes in with a bulldog to start turning things around! Jake to the floor, Jericho on the apron, Marq dropkicks him to the floor, Private Party off the ropes... STEREO TOPES! Beating the Inner Circle men down on the floor, back inside, quick tags to try and keep Hager off his feet.
Double suplex, cover for two, Jake throws Marq aside and boots him down before tagging Chris in. Mounted punches, disdainful kicks, back suplex square in the middle of the ring for one. Kassidy gets the tag, diving seated senton on Y2J, quebrada... NOPE! Charging in, back body drop to the apron, Hager cuts him off when he goes to springboard in and Jericho dropkicks him to the floor to send us to break.
Back from commercial, Hager is in charge and throwing Kassidy around. Clubbing him down, kneeling on his throat, into the corner but Isiah’s fighting back and looking for the tag! Big slam puts him down, Jake clears the apron, Kassidy springboard tijeras attempt, Hager catches him, Quen on the apron... SILLY STRING!
Tags made, Marq in hot, Manhattan Drop into a dropkick, dropkick for Hager too, off hte ropes... TOPE CON GIRO! Back on the apron, springboard crossbody takes Jericho down... NOT ENOUGH! Arm wringer, tag to Kassidy, double whip, Poetry in Motion! Front chancery, swing him around, double stomp / neckbreaker combo but Isiah’s slow to capitalize... JERICHO KICKS OUT!
Body blows in the corner, sidestep, Jake crashes into Chris, Y2J perches and Kassidy hits an Avalanche Frankensteiner when Hager pops him up... SO CLOSE! Isiah with forearms against the ropes, whip reversed, schoolboy... NO! Springboard Ace Crusher but he doesn’t go for the pin, instead heading up top.
Kassidy off the top, senton atomico... NOBODY HOME! Y2J nails him...
Inner Circle win by pinfall with the Judas Effect from Chris Jericho on Isiah Kassidy.
Post-match, Jericho puts the Walls of Jericho on Kassidy! Quen comes in and hits a Pele Kick on him, laying him out!
And so we go to break.
Back from commercial, we get some hype for our main event Parking Lot Fight as well as for next week’s show.
Ivelisse vs. Thunder Rosa (c) (NWA World Women’s Championship)
Circling, throwing strikes, Ivelisse catches a kick and follows it up with an arm drag. Rosa with arm drag of her own, front chancery, blocked, catch a forearm, stalemate! Ivelisse pie-facing her, Thunder throwing a palm strike right back, overhand chop, knucklelock, lucha arm drag, duck the lariat, tijeras connects!
Ivelisse with a solebutt, springboard arm drag, sidestep the charge, boot up, a tijeras of her own! Charging forearm from the champ, off the ropes for a facewash, folding press... NOPE! Gory Special applied, Diamante up on the apron for interference and Ivelisse counters to a backslide and a sliding knee... only two!
Thunder Rosa rolls to the floor to recover, Iveliise with a roundhouse from the apron and we go to break.
Back from commercial, Ivelisse in control with chest kicks, trading forearms, Rosa backs her into the corner and hits a big corner clothesline into corner knees! Kick to the midsection, off the ropes, basement dropkick gets a tight nearfall! Ivelisse going for a snapmare, Rosa reverses into a Russian legsweep into the arm-trap crossface!
Ivelisse gets the ropes, Rosa picks her legs but she lands a solebutt and goes to the apron. Springboard attempt countered with a forearm, Death Valley Driver connects... NO GOOD! Ivelisse rolls through, kick to the face, folding press... THUNDER ROSA KICKS OUT! Back and forth...
Thunder Rosa wins by pinfall with a Tombstone Piledriver to retain the NWA World Women’s Championship.
Post-match, Diamante attacks Rosa from behidn and kicks her to the floor! Ivelisse grabs the title belt and holds it high but Hikaru Shida hits the ring and makes the save! Shida grabs the NWA title and gives it back to Rosa before taking her leave.
We get a recap of Miro’s debut from last week.
A video package of Miro lifting weights while Kip Sabian talks him up. Miro gets up, eager to get in the ring and fight, and Kip reminds him that something else comes first. Miro says he’s going to throw the best bachelor party, they fist bump each other and Penelope Ford, and we go to break.
Back from commercial, Lance Archer makes his entrance and pulls some poor schmuck out of the crowd and throws him into the ring before dropping him with a chokeslam.
Jake “the Snake” Roberts gets on the mic.
He asks if you’d trade your heroes for ghosts, hot ashes for a cool breeze, and continues to riff on Wish You Were Here for a bit longer. Sometimes in wrestling, movies, and politics, you find yourself in bed with somebody you might now usual to go bed with, and that’s what they find themselves doing right now.
Sometimes you need information, or money or a way out, and for them, they need tag team partners. Two men for a trios match, and if he’s going to lay in bed with the devil, he’d just as soon lay in bed with a tasmanian devil.
He says Team Taz is extremely excited and happy to do business with them, and it’s all business. Like they discussed, the trio of Ricky Starks, Brian Cage, and Lance Archer is a deadly trio and a great deal. And they have a deal, where when Archer destroys Jon Moxley and takes the title, that Lance will give Brian Cage the first shot at the title.
Lance says Taz and his boys are enemies of his enemy, and that makes them friendly, but come October 14, after he puts that punk-ass Jon Moxley down, AEW’s gonna have a killer new champion, and he doesn’t care about Eddie Kingston’s whining and crying, the Monster and the Machine are gonna go Godzilla on Daily’s Place.
Jon Moxley’s music hits and we see him standing at the edge of the crowd, mic in hand.
He goes to start talking but a fan attacks him— it’s Ricky Starks! Brian Cage joinse the beatdown! Security tries and fails to the make the save! Team Taz beat him down and throw him through a road case! Will Hobbs makes the save with a steel chair! Team Taz run away!
Mox gets on the mic and says it’s a hell of a team Archer’s put together, but he’s got a team of his own put together, and it starts with Will Hobbs! But they’re gonna need a third, so he’s gonna call Taz’s favorite wrestler, Darby Allin! He knows he’s watching at home and he had better get his ass to Jacksonville next week because they’re going to war!
Commentary hypes next week’s show up, including Orange Cassidy getting a shot at Mr. Brodie Lee’s TNT Championship, to send us to break.
