AEW DYNAMITE RESULTS AND LIVE BLOG FOR MAR. 16

Morning comes too early, and nighttime falls too late. And sometimes all I want to do is wait, but now I just want to liveblog this here pro wrestling show for you, folks.

The show opens with the intro video.

Adam Cole & reDRagon (Bobby Fish & Kyle O’Reilly) vs. “Hangman” Adam Page & Jurassic Express (“Jungle Boy” Jack Perry & Luchasaurus)

Perry and Cole to start, Adam right in with strikes, throwing Jungle Boy into the corner. Whip reversed, Jack ducks an enzuigiri, ducks a knee, blocks a waistlock, knucklelock, Cole blocks a lucha arm drag, Perry slingshots in and catches him with a tijeras and a dropkick!

Arm wringer, Cole cuts him off and tags Fish in. Bob with an arm wringer, Jack slips away and tags Luchasaurus in and he drops everybody with big overhand chops! Goozle to O’Reilly, Cole saves his body and Fish kicks the dino man down from the apron! Heels put Luchasaurus into the post and go to work.

Eventually Page tags in, triangle lariat takes Cole out, fallaway slam for Fish! Plancha takes the other two out, lariat sends Bobby to the floor, a dive on the other two and the world champion is fired up! Liger Bomb on Fish, only two! Perry legal, moonsaults in triplicate from all three babyfaces... NOT ENOUGH!

reDRagon with Demolition Decapitation but Jungle Boy kicks out and we go to break!

Back from commercial, Luchasaurus with a hot tag, cutting reDRagon down, big German suplex to O’Reilly, Cole slides in and he gets taken out with a crescent kick! Chokeslam puts Fish into Kyle and then he moonsaults on them both for two! Getting under KOR, electric chair, Jungle Boy goes for the Doomsday Device but Kyle takes the dino down and Adam clocks Jack with a superkick!

Heel hook in, Cole gets a guillotine choke on Page but Hangman stumbles forward and breaks up the heel hook! Superkick, Page hits Deadeye and the match breaks down into “everybody do something cool” territory, Hangman and dino have electric chairs on Fish and Cole, Perry up top... DOUBLE DOOMSDAY DEVICE!

Jungle Boy with right hands, off the ropes, duck a lariat, slip out of a fireman’s carry, Cole off the ropes...

Adam Cole & reDRagon over “Hangman” Adam Page & Jurassic Express by pinfall with Cole hitting the Boom on “Jungle Boy” Jack Perry.

Keith Lee, Ricky Starks, and Will Hobbs are interviewed backstage.

Starks calls Keith out and says it’s his lucky day because his asswhooping is saved for later, but they whooped him on Rampage after he showed up. And should he go back to Rampage, the same thing is gonna happen. Lee asks if that includes when he punched him out and Ricky laid on the mat like a little bitch? He’ll see him Friday.

And so we go to break.


Back from commercial we get a brief vignette of Kris Statlander taking her facepaint off.

Best Friends (Chuck Taylor & Wheeler YUTA) vs. “American Dragon” Bryan Danielson & Jon Moxley

Danielson and YUTA to start, Dragon with uppercuts, tag to Moxley, he snaps off a vertical suplex for two. Quick tags, working Wheeler over, he gets a dropkick in and tags Taylor! Chuck in hot, chops and forearms to cut away at Bryan, boot up, plancha takes Jon down on the floor!

Off the ropes, roll-through half-crab! Mox intervenes, Dragon takes Chuck to the floor and throws him back in where Jon stomps his hand! Choke in the corner, trading chops with Taylor, setting him up in the turnbuckles and cutting him down with a hammerlock as we go to break.

Back from commercial, Mox knocks YUTA to the floor with a lariat and then blasts him again when he comes back. Wheeler floats over, bridging German suplex, only two! Danielson in, chest kicks, YUTA wants more, absorbing every kick and getting fired up for more! Duck the buzzsaw, vicious forearms but Moxley comes in, so he gets a bunch of forearms before managing to snap off a Saito Suplex!

Danielson hits that Regalplex... SO CLOSE! Moxley back in...

“American Dragon” Bryan Danielson & Jon Moxley win by submission with the reverse chinlock choke from Moxley on Wheeler YUTA.

Post-match, Wheeler YUTA hangs back and offers William Regal a handshake. Regal slaps him across the face and they have a chat, genially nodding until Regal tells him to run along.

FTR are backstage and interviewed by Tony Schiavone.

They say firing Tully Blanchard didn’t come easily but he had been checked out after they lost the titles.

The Young Bucks roll up and say there’s no manager they could hire that would ever make them anything but the second best tag team in AEW.

And so we go to break.


Back from commercial, Starks and Hobbs roll up to give the Acclaimed a pep talk about taking Keith Lee out but Shane Strickland comes up and tells Starks that he’s gonna make Rampage his house.

The Jericho Appreciation Society make their entrance.

Matt Lee gets on the mic and sings Chris Jericho’s praises, saying if it was up to him there’d be no Judas singalongs but Y2J is a better man than him. Jeff Parker says Jericho deserves to be praised, and he gives Chris a big intro and the microphone.

Jericho says we’re lucky to exist in his lifetime and if he wasn’t here there’d be no AEW, but instead we undermine him and take him for granted and write hurtful things on social media. He says the Inner Circle never appreciated him and calls Eddie Kingston a coward who tapped him out.

But these men do appreciate him, and that’s why they’re the Jericho Appreciation Society and they can’t relate to the rest of the roster, who are mere pro wrestlers and a pro wrestler has never been legendary or a millionaire, but he’s a legendary millionaire many times over, and that’s because he’s a sports entertainer.

Daniel Garcia gets on the mic and in Jericho’s face and says if he’s gonna stand here and call himself a sports entertainer well... then he is, too. Chris puts him over and recounts how he donated thousands of dollars to his recovery when he got into a car accident in 2019 with the other Buffalo wrestleboys.

And then you got 2.0, which is a stupid name from bad creative and you’ll never hear it again, and they use their real names in the Jericho Appreciation society, Matt Minard and Angelo Parker. He talks about his good pal Kevin calling him up after they got released and he got them a spot in AEW.

And then he talks about Jake Hager, who’s always been the one man he can trust, the hand of the king. And thus begins the new era in AEW, the era of the sports entertainer.

A Serena Deeb vignette about her feud with Hikaru Shida follows, because time is meaningless.

Scorpio Sky (c) vs. Wardlow (AEW TNT Championship)

Sky with a side headlock, Wardlow picks him up and slams him down! Shoulder thrusts in the corner, picking Scorpio up and marching him around to hit a spinebuster! Paige VanZant and her husband get in Mr. Mayhem’s face and smooch to taunt him, but only Sky’s timely intervention saves dude from getting powerbombed as we go to break!

Back from commercial, Sky is in control and jawing at Wardlow in the corner. Front kick, whip blocked, overhead belly-to-belly suplex from the challenger! Another one, going to work with the powerbombs, Scorpio to the floor and Shawn Spears makes his entrance, chair in hand!

Wardlow waves him down, referee Stephon Smith warns him off and MJF runs in, smashing Mr. Mayhem into the steel post! Smith missed it, Wardlow crawls in...

Scorpio Sky wins by pinfall with a lateral press.

Post-match, American Top Team goes to work on Wardlow but he manages to shrug them off and confronts Friedman, stopping him from running away! But before he can hit the powerbomb, Spears hammers him with a chair and Lambert’s boys go back to work! Wardlow flips Shawn off and gets blasted with a chair!

Max pays Dan Lambert and lies in wait while Wardlow crawls back up the ropes... AND BLASTS HIM WITH THE DYNAMITE DIAMOND RING!

And so we go to break.


Back from commercial, Jade Cargill and “Smart” Mark Sterling are interviewed backstage.

Sterling asks who’s ready to be lucky number 30, and Jade says she’s done waiting.

Hardy Boyz (Jeff & Matt Hardy) vs. Private Party (Isiah Kassidy & Marq Quen)

Matt and Quen to start, Marq gives the thumbs down and Hardy lights him up with punches! Kassidy runs in, Jeff slides and jumps him and runs him off. Matt with arm wringers, double boots, Poetry in Motion! Hardy off the ropes, hip toss, cover for one! Matt tags back in, double team for two, overhead elbows, Kassidy tags in, double teams for two!

Backing Hardy into the corner, putting boots to him, whip reversed, elbow up, Matt cuts him off and looks for the Razor’s Edge but Isiah slips out and taunts Jeff Hardy to create an opening for him and Quen to pull Matt into the post hard as we go to break.

Back from commercial, Matt looking for a Side Effect but Quen blocks with a rake of his eyes and knocks him to the floor with a dropkick! Hardy takes Kassidy out on the floor with a right hand but Marq dives on him with a tope con giro! Back inside, diving stomp / neckbreaker combination... NOT ENOUGH!

Isiah with mounted punches, body blows in the corner, quick tags, hot tag to Jeff! Manhattan Drop to the double leg drop to the basement dropkick to the elbow drop, cover... NOPE! Side Russian legsweep, roll through, double leg drop into the victory roll pin... STILL NO!

Sitout Gourdbuster, Jeff takes his shirt off and goes up top but Quen cuts him off and crotches him! Matt comes in, Side Effect for Quen, neckbreaker takedown on Kassidy, splash off the top... ISIAH KICKS OUT! Brother Nero with the delete air chop, kick to the gut, Twist of Fate denied, Silly String blocked, Twists of Fate on both guys!

Jeff goes up top...

Hardy Boyz win by pinfall with a Swanton Bomb from Jeff Hardy on Isiah Kassidy.

Post-match, Andrade el Idolo & co. come down to attack but Sting and Darby Allin make the save!

Commentary hypes up Rampage.

Red Velvet is interviewed backstage.

She says she thought Leyla Hirsch had changed and she stood up for her but now she’s gonna put a stop to it.

And so we go to break.


Dr. Britt Baker, DMD (c) vs. Thunder Rosa (AEW Women’s World Championship Steel Cage Match)

Baker immediately tries to run away up the cage but Rosa cuts her off! Whip across, she tries climbing again, again cut off, Thunder with a front kick and a lariat, punches to the face, dropkick, scraping Britt’s face on the mesh of the cage! Standing surfboard over the ropes, mounted punches in the corner!

Smashing her face into the cage more, Baker busted open and she manages to put Rosa into the post as we go to break!

Back from commercial, Rosa with a Stunner, slingshot double knees in the corner, Baker lines her up but she dodges and referee Paul Turner eats a superkick and crashes to the floor! Visual nearfall, Fire Thunder Driver... NO REFEREE! Thunder goes up top, Britt cracks a chair across her back a bunch and lays some more chairs under the turnbuckles!

Air Raid Crash off the top and into the chairs... STILL NO REFEREE! Aubrey Edwards runs down to relieve Turner, she slides in, cover... NOPE! Baker does some hardcore Feng Shui and stacks chairs two layers high with Rosa up in the turnbuckles! Jockeying for position, trading punches in the high-rent district... BRITT BOUNCES OFF THE CAGE AND FALLS THROUGH THE CHAIRS!

Cover for two, a bloodied and battered Thunder Rosa considers her next move but eats a superkick! Baker goes and gets a black bag and whips Rosa in the face with it a few times before dumping the tacks out on the mat! Jockeying for position over the tags, Britt hits a back body drop but can’t keep Thunder down! Looking for Lockjaw but Rosa bites her hand!

Smashing Britt’s hand into the tacks over and over, kneeling powerbomb into the tacks! She takes a minute and hoists Baker up again...

Thunder Rosa wins by pinfall with a Fire Thunder Driver into thumbtacks to become your new AEW Women’s World Champion.

That’s the show, folks.
