AEW DYNAMITE RESULTS AND LIVE BLOG FOR APRIL 27
Cry for me, sigh for me, sad my breezes flow. Stay for me, play for me, the song my friends will know. My lonely wind must blow while I liveblog this here pro wrestling show for you, folks.
The show opens with CM Punk joining the commentary team for tonight’s show.
Cash Wheeler vs. Dax Harwood (Owen Hart Foundation Tournament Qualifying Match)
Collar and elbow, Harwood with a side headlock, wrenching it in, trading takeovers and headscissors counters with abandon until they stalemate! Wheeler back at it, kneeling armbar applied, Dax puts him into the corner and puts a thumb into his eye!
Cash is upset and lays a couple good shoves in, knee lift, uppercut, whip across and a hard shoulder in the corner! Struggling over a suplex, Harwood sets Wheeler up top and lays a wicked series of chops in to stagger him! Climbing up after, superplex connects! Cash sends him to the floor after and we go to break.
Back from commercial, Wheeler presses his advantage, blocks a German suplex, off the ropes, double crossbody and both men are down and out! Harwood closes with jabs, double leg reverses him, jackknife pin for two! Cash with a slam, Dax rolls through, again just two! Hip toss blocked, backflip over, slingshot powerbomb reversed into a hurricanrana... NOPE!
Slingshot powerbomb connects this time, only two! Victory roll, Cash follows it up with a piledriver... NOT ENOUGH! Up in the turnbuckles, jockeying for position, Wheeler takes him out with a right hand before repositioning him... BACK SUPERPLEX REVERSED INTO A CROSSBODY!
Off the ropes, drop down, crossbody too close to the ropes and both men crash to the floor! Double leg, Dax wants the Sharpshooter but he takes too long, Cash with a small package, Harwood reverses...
Dax Harwood wins by pinfall with a small package to qualify for the Owen Hart Foundation tournament.
CM Punk gets up from commentary and gets on the mic.
He says he’s gonna make it quick and he’s never been in a better locker room. He asked himself the question when he came back if he could still do this and now he can probably stand here and say hell yeah he can still do this. He’s a fan of Adam Page, and not to disparage anyone he’s shared a ring with except maybe Eddie Kingston, but everything up to this point has just been warming up.
He can’t promise us a win, but he can promise that he’s giving all he’s got because without us there’s no him, there’s no comeback, there’s no Double or Nothing title match. He’s never been a gambling man, but he will always bet on himself, and at Double or Nothing, Page will know he’s been in a fight with CM Punk, and he’ll fight until the wheels come off.
We get a promo from Dan Lambert and Scorpio Sky.
They put Sky’s achievements over and say he got screwed out of the TNT Championship, and he gives Sammy Guevara some credit. He’s given the fans some great ladder moments, but Philly isn’t here for that, Philly is here to see him beat Sammy’s ass and take that title back.
Blackpool Combat Club (“American Dragon” Bryan Danielson, Jon Moxley, & Wheeler YUTA) vs. the Factory (Aaron Solo, Nick Comoroto, & QT Marshall)
Moxley and Comoroto to start, Jon lighting him up but Nick bowls him over with a shoulder block. Arm wringer, tag to Solo, Mox LEVELS him with a forearm and follows it up with a Crash Landing! Back suplex, YUTA tags in and we go to break.
Back from commercial, the Factory have Wheeler isolated but he’s able to snap off a German suplex on Marshall! Tags made, Danielson in on Solo, throwing uppercuts with righteous vengeance, chops and kicks in the corner, whip reversed, backflip up and over, duck a lariat, suicide dive into the rest of the Factory on the floor!
Big forearm coming back in, Bryan off the top with a missile dropkick and he kips up! Chest kicks, the match breaks down into “everybody do something cool” territory with Mox and Dragon doing tandem charging strikes! Aaron shoves Bryan but gets cut out of midair with a dropkick!
Comoroto in with YUTA, bieling the BCC man a few times, fired up, Wheeler reverses a powerslam into a guillotine choke and then shifts into a sleeper hold! Nick reverses to a fireman’s carry, YUTA blocks with the overhead elbows, seatbelt...
Blackpool Combat Club win by pinfall with a seatbelt pin from Wheeler YUTA on Nick Comoroto.
Dr. Britt Baker, DMD, Jamie Hayter, and Toni Storm are interviewed backstage.
Britt says they promised no physicality, and Storm wants to introduce Baker to her pal Ruby Soho, who has also qualified for the tournament. Ruby says Britt and Jamie show up for every new girl to throw their weight around, and as Owen Hart said, “enough is enough and it’s time for a change” and she’s happy to drop her right here.
Hayter wants to fight but Baker begs off and takes her off to catering to find a snack.
And so we go to break.
Back from commercial, Christian Cage and Jurassic Express are interviewed backstage.
Jungle Boy admits he could have won the qualifying match last week and Christian Cage says he sounds like a loser but he’s still a champion and it won’t happen again, so he’s issuing a challenge to any top five team—
Team Taz immediately roll up and Ricky Starks issues the challenge any time, any place.
Maxwell Jacob Friedman cracks a joke about how women in Philadelphia use their personalities as birth control (I mean personally I use “being a t4t lesbian” but to each their own) for cheap heat and tells everyone to keep quiet for Wardlow’s music-free entrance.
Lance Archer vs. Wardlow
Wardlow hot out the gates, smashing Archer into the corner, shoulder thrusts and uppercuts, all violence and agility as he hoists the Murderhawk Monster up and hits a spinebuster in the middle of the ring! Archer with the Iron Claw, Mr. Mayhem breaks it, off the ropes, double clothesline and both men are down and out!
Knucklock from Lance, clubbing blows as he finally gets some real momentum going, rope walk moonsault connects! Archer with a chokeslam... NOPE! He gets Wardlow up in the inverted crucifix... HE KICKS OUT OF BLACKOUT AND REVERSES TO A PIN! Setting him up top in the corner, jockeying for position, Mr. Mayhem overwhelms him with headbutts!
Wardlow hits a beautiful senton atomico... STILL NO! The straps are down, powerbomb one connects and he’s fired up! More powerbombs, he conducts the symphony...
Wardlow wins by pinfall with the Powerbomb Symphony.
And so we go to break.
Back from commercial, the Jericho Appreciation Society make their entrance.
Parker gets on the mic and says in order to have this sitdown they gave their word to Tony Khan and the AEW Galaxy that there will be no physicality in this ring tonight.
Enter Eddie Kingston, Ortiz, and Santana, throwing the chairs on their side away.
Chris Jericho gets on the mic and accuses his opponents of taking the opportunity to see the JAS away from the fine people of Pittsburg last week and he wants an apology. Angel Ortiz says he has something better than an apology and digs around in his pockets for a moment before flipping him the bird!
Santana says the problem is Jericho turned on the two dudes who had his back from the beginning, and Daniel Garcia says the threats don’t mean anything because they can’t hit them. They get in King and co.’s face and Eddie’s had enough and tells him to back up.
He hates this crap, the chair, the table, and none of it matters because they’re gonna get them regardless. Stop with the crap, let’s fight, he doesn’t care if it’s five-on-three, let’s go! Chris calls him a stupid son of a bitch and they’ll take them out one-by-one, and they’re putting a hit on all their asses!
Kingston asks him if he knows what a hit means, and in his world that ENDS things. Jericho asks if he’s gonna hit him and get kicked out of another wrestling company before telling him to shut his mouth and do as he’s told, bitch. Eddie says he’s not gonna hit him, he can smell the fear coming off of him.
When you say a hit in his world, you gotta be prepared to put someone in the ground, he’s done it before, is Chris ready for that?
Sammy Guevara and Tay Conti get an obnoxious promo video.
Hikaru Shida vs. Serena Deeb (Philly Street Fight)
Shida rushes in, Deeb ducks the kendo stick, uppercuts, whip reversed, Hikaru with a vicious forearm into mounted punches! Serena turns her over, more punches, Shida blocks with an upkick and gets away! Headed up top, missile dropkick connects! Out to the floor, grabbing a chair, setting it up but Deeb rushes back in the ring to block!
Back up on the apron, Hikaru smashing her face into the turnbuckles, pulling her up, clubbing blows to the back, diving knee off the apron but Serena blocks with a chair! Back inside, setting it up, smashing Shida’s knee into the steel to send us to break!
Back from commercial, Deeb is still working the knee but Shida manages to reverse into a basement gallon throw into the chair! Serena recovers with a blast of powder to the eyes, kendo stick shots over and over, but Hikaru gets the stick and swings wild until she blasts her with a good one!
Getting water from a crew member, washing her eyes out, off the steel steps with a missile dropkick! Back inside, Deeb cuts off another knee with the chair, sliding the chair over her leg, headed up top but Shida recovers and blocks the Pillmanizer with a chairshot!
Avalanche Falcon Arrow... SO CLOSE! Hikaru grabs the kendo stick and waits to get up before putting it through Serena’s midsection and choking her with it! Deeb reverses to a pin for two but Shida just whacks her with the stick again! Serena blocks a powerbomb with a thumb to the eyes, trapping the arms, Detox on the chair... STILL NO!
Looking for the Serenity Lock but Shida fights to the ropes! No break but the Deeb repositions her anyway and smashes her knee into the chair a bunch of times! Cloverleaf applied, turning her over in it...
Serena Deeb wins by submission with a cloverleaf.
We see Thunder Rosa watching backstage.
Maxwell Jacob Friedman and Shawn Spears are interviewed.
MJF says he’s got a plan and yells at the interviewer to get out of his frame before getting his phone out and making a call. He asks the man on the other line how he’d feel about making six figures for one match and says next week, Wardlow will fight someone smarter, stronger, and taller than he is... and you can’t teach that.
And on that note, we go to break.
Back from commercial, we see Fuego del Sol laid out on the ramp in a spotlight.
Malakai Black walks up and knees over him as Brody King and Buddy Matthews help him up. Black goes to take his mask off when a robed man who sounds suspiciously like Alex Abrahantes appears in the ring to tell him a mask is sacred and if he messes with Fuego he’s going to get burned. He says they’ve been waiting for the right moment to blindside him.
Enter Penta Oscuro, followed shortly thereafter by PAC, and then by Alex Abrahantes.
The robed man takes his cloak off and Rey Fenix is in the ring behind the House of Black! He takes a wild swing with a shovel and misses, Matthews takes it away and Fenix takes him out with a superkick and a springboard solebutt! Double jump diving stomp takes Buddy out!
Death Triangle stand tall and run the ropes for dives in triplicate to take the House of Black out!
Shane Strickland and Darby Allin are interviewed about their qualifying match coming up.
Shane says he doesn’t consider them friends so much as rivals that have kicked the hell out of each other but Rampage is Swerve’s house and he’s gonna win. Allin says he can’t just keep claiming things are his house, and AEW is Darby’s house, and on Friday he’s gonna show him why this tournament is Darby’s tournament.
Brock Anderson, Dante Martin, Lee Johnson, & Varsity Blonds (Brian Pillman, Jr. & Griff Garrison) vs. Undisputed Elite (Adam Cole, Bobby Fish, Kyle O’Reilly, Matt Jackson, & Nick Jackson)
Undisputed Elite jumping the babyfaces and picking Martin out to start with Matt Jackson, tag to Kyle, Dante turns the speed up to get a tag to Pillman. Front kick, chop in the ropes, whip across, dropkick-assisted spinebuster but the Bucks take the Blonds out right after!
Fish with an exploder suplex on Anderson, Martin with a springboard dropkick, Johnson with a corkscrew tope and the babyfaces stand tall to send us to break.
Back from commercial, the Bucks and reDRagon are in charge but bickering, Nick spikes Lee with a slingshot X-Factor before taking the Blonds out with an Asai Moonsault! Matt with a dropkick through the ropes, Nick with a tope con giro over him! Cole finally tags in, four-way BTE Trigger, drop the kneepad, off the ropes...
Undisputed Elite win by pinfall with the Boom from Adam Cole on Lee Johnson.
Post-match, reDRagon pass out Undisputed Elite t-shirts and everybody puts them on and stands tall and poses.
We cut backstage where the Jericho Appreciation Society have laid Ortiz and Santana out and have Eddie Kingston hold down... JERICHO BLASTS A FIREBALL INTO EDDIE’S FACE!
We get a promo package for Samoa Joe defending the ROH World Television Championship against Trent Beretta and go to break.
Sammy Guevara (c) vs. Scorpio Sky (AEW TNT Championship Ladder Match)
Sky hot out the gates, dropping Guevara throat-first across the barricade and then smashing him with a ladder! Suplex blocked, Sammy hits a German suplex of his own on the floor! Guevara sets up a ladder in the ring and climbs but Scorpio cuts him off! Sammy pulls him off the ladder and climbs again!
Off the top of the ladder, Phoenix Splash and both men are down and out as we go to break.
Guevara off the top, Sky cuts him off with a big Ace Crusher and goes under the ring for a barbed wire ladder! He slides it in the ring, TKO blocked and Sammy hits a standing Spanish Fly to put him into the wire! Guevara pulls Dan Lambert into the ring, Dan begs off, Tay Conti slides in and kicks him in the gentleman’s area!
Paige VanZant hits the ring and brawls with Conti! Sky and Guevara trade Frye/Takayama punches, Scorpio takes him into the corner and beats him down! Sammy and Tay stand tall after it and smooch in the middle of the ring before going and getting the barbed wire ladder from the floor.
Sky powers up, reverse STO connects, both men climb, their respective distaff allies get on the other guy’s back and then end up brawling on the mat and knocking each other out with kicks! Sammy and Scorpio brawling on the ladder, Guevara flips him the bird and Sky bits his finger before piefacing him halfway off the ladder!
Sammy climbs back up, clubbing right hands, he reaches for the title but Scorpio knocks him off the ladder and into the barbed wire! Climbing, but Guevara springboards off the ropes and right back up the ladder! Sky knocks him down again and climbs...
Scorpio Sky wins by retrieving the title to become the new AEW TNT Championship.
Post-match, Frankie Kazarian comes right down to square up and remind Sky that he owes him a title shot! Scorpio shakes his hand and holds the title high!
That’s the show, folks.
