AEW DYNAMITE RESULTS AND LIVE BLOG FOR APRIL 14
Dare to look, face the test, on the eve when you set sailing. What you’ve learned, what you’ve earned, ship of joy will stop you failing. I can’t conceal it like I knew I did before. I got to tell you now, the ship is ready waiting on the shore, but me? I’m liveblogging this here pro wrestling show for you, folks.
The show opens with the Young Bucks cutting a promo about how they chose friendship and Don Callis was right when he said they changed, and they weren’t hungry anymore.
The intro video follows.
Mike Tyson cuts a promo backstage and Maxwell Jacob Friedman interrupts him early on.
He says his boys in the Pinnacle are peeved at him, Tyson says he’s mad at them too, and MJF tries to sell him on attacking Chris Jericho tonight, but Mike remains steadfast and tells him he’s his enemy. Friedman asks him to be on the right side of history, and whips out a blank check with his name on it, telling him to think about it.
Iron Mike snatches it out of his hands and tears it up!
Commentary hypes up tonight’s show.

Kenny Omega, the Good Brothers, the Young Bucks, and Don Callis are interviewed on their way out of the building.
Callis yanks the mic away and says if the wrestling world has learned one thing about them, it’s that just when you think you’ve seen it all, you haven’t seen anything, because when the Young Bucks came back to the fold, it wasn’t the end of the story, but just the beginning. Kenny says listening to the interwebs, the podcasts, they ask why they changed, but they never changed, they just got sick of us wanting them to be just like us.

And so we go to break.
Back from commercial, Tony Schiavone interviews Christian Cage in the ring.
He says this is the first time he’s gotten to be interviewed by Tony and it’s a huge thrill. He’s out here in his gear and Tony Khan has given him an open contract and he’s gonna use it.
Enter Team Taz.
Taz demands to know if he’s in or out, and Cage says he was gonna do this later in private but he didn’t come here to fix his problems, he came here to win championships, and he’s glad he’s standing on those steps so he can say it face to face, the answer is no. Taz calls him a shitbag and says if he was standing on his wallet he’d be ten feet over his head.
He says this is the biggest mistake of his career and he never liked him or his stupid buddy that carried him.
