AEW DYNAMITE RESULTS AND LIVE BLOG FOR NOV. 23
Sell out! Here’s my big hit, hope you like it. You’re all blind, but me? I’m here to liveblog this here pro wrestling show for you, folks.
The show opens with the intro video.
William Regal is in the ring and on the mic and says we’ll hear from Mr. Friedman next week, because he doesn’t have time for places like Chicago. Rather he’s on the set of a major motion picture, and Regal is sure we’re all wondering what the union between the two of them is.
He pauses for “Fuck you, Regal!” chants and calls them (rightfully) uncouth before saying a number of weeks ago he sent MJF an email that we won’t be privy to until next week, when Max will explain everything.
Enter Jon Moxley.
He makes his way to the ring, his face a mask of anger, but as he slides in the ring, “American Dragon” Bryan Danielson gets between them and backs Jon off. Mox shoves him but Dragon manages to hold the line and get on the mic. He says he doesn’t know why Regal did what he did, and that was a bad thing, but so have both of them.
So he’s asking Jon, because William has a bad neck and two brain bleeds, please don’t hurt him. Bryan asks him more and slaps him to try and put some sense into him before falling to his knees and apologizing. He doesn’t care if they’re booing, and Mox knows the struggles Regal deals with, and Dragon’s dad suffered with that too, and this is more than wrestling.
When his dad struggled, he didn’t understand, and only one person could teach him, and that’s William Regal. And for the last years of his life, before his dad passed away, Bryan was able to love him, because of Regal, and asks Moxley to imagine someone teaching his daughter to love him.
Bryan asks Jon to save him for him, because he loves him.
Jon takes a good long beat in the ropes to think about what Bryan said and then gets real close to Regal. He says he only wants one thing from him. He wants him to run far away, as far away as he can, and never, ever come back. William slowly turns and walks away.
Renee Paquette interviews Keith Lee backstage.
Before he can answer, Shane Strickland rolls up and Lee tells him to choose his words wisely. Strickland looks at the camera and covers it with his hand, and asks Keith to talk in private.
Jake Hager vs. Orange Cassidy (c) (AEW All-Atlantic Championship)
Hager takes Cassidy’s sunglasses and puts them on with his hat. He swats Orange’s attempts to reclaim them away, so he just puts his hands in his pockets and gets on with the shin kicks. Jake blasts him into the corner, sidestep a charge and Cassidy knocks his hat off by smashing him into the turnbuckles!
Taking him back inside, Orange sends him out with a low bridge and stalks after the hat, picking it up, 2.0 try to get it back and Daniel Garcia succeeds until Rocky Romero knocks him down! Cassidy has the hat, off the ropes, cut off a dive and 2.0 return the hat to their man as we go to break.
Back from commercial, action on the floor, Hager into the barricade, corkscrew springboard senton atomico takes out the goons at ringside! Back inside, Jake goes for a suplex, Orange reverses to Stundog Millionaire and follows it up with a tilt-a-whirl DDT!

Post-match, the Factory come to the stage and QT Marshall gets on the mic.
He says they’ve got a lot of unfinished business and since Orange has no problem giving out All-Atlantic title shots one after the other...
The Factory surrounds the ring and the lights go out.
When they come back up, Julia Hart is stood on the stage, shrouded in red mist. She raises a hand and brings it down, and the House of Black are waiting behind Best Friends to put boots to them! They follow it up by putting the Factory down, too!
They drag a security guard to the stage, Buddy Matthews hooks him and tosses him over to Brody King... DANTE’S INFERNO!
Malakai Black gets on the mic and asks members of the House of Black to rise.
And we’re going to break.
Back from commercial, “All Ego” Ethan Page cuts an entrance promo about how he’s gonna beat Ricky Starks and make the crowd cry about it like the losers they are.
“All Ego” Ethan Page vs. “Absolute” Ricky Starks (AEW World Championship #1 Contender’s Tournament Finals)
Page cocky early, dancing around, Starks corners him and unleashes on him with punches but all it takes is one shot to the ribs to turn his tide around. Starks gets a spear but can’t capitalize because of his injured ribs. All Ego takes him to the floor and throws him into the barricade to send us to break.
Back from commercial, trading punches in the corner, off the ropes, Page with a front kick, blocks a DDT by hanging Starks over the top rope! To the floor, referee Stephon Smith ejects Stokely Hathaway from ringside, back inside, up in the turnbuckles... STARKS WITH A SUPERPLEX!

She says she’s not giving “that wack ass rapper” any more attention because she’s got her belt back and she’s gonna have a celebration next week. Mark Sterling will address the Bow Wow situation legally, and he offers “no comment” as her official statement.
He serves Kiera Hogan with papers that indicate that Jade no longer needs her services.

Renee Paquette interviews FTR and Top Flight backstage.
Dax Harwood says last week their match with AR Fox against Death Triangle impressed him, and he wants them to take over tag wrestling the way they have. Dante and Darius say they’ve been impressed with FTR for years, and they challenge them to a match for the ROH World Tag Team Championship.
