AEW DYNAMITE RESULTS AND LIVE BLOG FOR MAY 10
I know the feeling, it is the real thing, the essence of the truth. The perfect moment, that golden moment, I know you feel it too, and I’m here to liveblog this pro wrestling show for you, folks.
Whoops I miscalculated my walk back from a pretty girl’s birthday party and came in a few minutes late, our opening match in progress! On with the show!
Claudio Castagnoli vs. Rey Fenix (Double Jeopardy Match)
Castagnoli taking a breather when I come in, Fenix dives on him, Claudio catches a followup and suplexes him over the barricade! Back inside, big lariat after cutting off a Yoshi Tonic, cover for two! Back to the floor, Castagnoli press slams him over the barricade and we go to break!
Back from commercial, strikes over the ropes, Castagnoli catches him with a Karelin lift off the top... NOPE! Fenix with a rolling thunder Ace Crusher, moonsault to the floor! Back inside, Claudio goes for a Ricola Bomb... REVERSED INTO A ROLLING SUNSET FLIP POWERBOMB!
Both men down, Rey with a superkick for two! Fireman’s carry, Claudio floats out... ALPAMARE WATERSLIDE FOR A NEARFALL! Into the mounted elbows that are the trademark of Blackpool Combat Club, crossing the arms...
Claudio Castagnoli wins by pinfall with the Ricola Bomb.
Backstage, Miro is interviewed.
He refuses to speak and simply walks into Tony Khan’s office.
Maxwell Jacob Friedman cuts a promo comparing the Pillars to the Beatles— Sammy is Ringo, Jungle Boy is George, Darby is John, and he himself is Paul, the best with the most longevity. He’s been in the best dog collar match and the best Iron Man, and now he’s gonna be in the best four-way ever, and his reign of terror has just begun.
And so we go to break.
Back from commercial we get a hype reel for our main event.
FTR make their entrance and get on the mic.
Dax Harwood invites their friend Mark Briscoe to come down because they have an apology to make—
Enter Jeff Jarrett, Jay Lethal, Satnam Singh, and Sonjay Dutt.
Dutt says FTR have one job today, and that’s to accept their challenge.
Enter Mark Briscoe.
He tells everyone to simmer down and relax, it’s become abundantly apparent to him that they have a hard time controlling their emotions. So he talked to his good friend Tony Khan and he’s got some news— at Double or Nothing, he’ll be the special guest referee for Jay Lethal and Jeff Jarrett vs. FTR!
He pours a toast to make it all official but Sonjay spits his in FTR’s face and Briscoe has to pull them apart! A blinded Dax DDTs Mark Briscoe by accident!
Renee Paquette interviews Chris Jericho backstage.
He takes issue with everyone being so happy that Adam Cole “got the best of him” after an unprovoked attack while he was doing commentary, and Cole created an unsafe working environment and he’s a coward, so Jericho went and got a court order that says they can’t be in the same building at the same time.
Roderick Strong rolls up. He says Adam Cole is his best friend and he’s no coward, and Roddy isn’t banned from the building, so he wants Jericho in a Falls Count Anywhere. Jericho accepts the match and says he’ll have his army behind him, but Strong prepared for that and passes him a court order of his own that says that JAS are banned from the building next week!
Renee Paquette is waiting outside of Tony Khan’s office for Miro to come out, but Thunder Rosa rolls up and we go to break.
Back from commercial, we get a hype reel for Sammy Guevara.
Tony Khan appears to talk about what a great show we have tonight and, in addition to everything tonight, there are stars in the back lined up looking for chances to wrestle, and it’s clearer than ever that AEW can produce more great content every week, and he’ll have a huge announcement next week.
“Red Death” Daniel Garcia vs. Orange Cassidy (c) (AEW International Championship)
Cassidy with a waistlock takedown, standing switch, takedown of his own, Garcia rides him and dances himself a little taunt. Arm wringer into a side headlock, duck a lariat, arm drag into an armbar! Wrenching a wristlock in, Daniel shoots him off, drop toehold blocked, hands in the pockets and he casually steps out!
Dropkick, kip-up, another dropkick, Garcia cuts him off with a top wristlock and snaps his arm over the top rope! Orange manages a suicide dive, back inside, up top, big crossbody! Off the ropes, duck a lariat, Garcia cuts him off! Red Death draws him up, throws him into the turnbuckles and he crashes to the floor!

We get a video package of dueling promos between Team DMD and the Outcasts.
Christian Cage and Luchaaurus make their entrance.
Tony Schiavone is in the ring to talk to him about the AEW TNT Championship.
He says he’s #1 contender because he’s Christian Cage and his laundry list of accomplishments lets him walk into the boss’s office and demanding the shot. Much like his previous opponent, Wardlow also HAD a father, but he’s not gonna go down that path because let’s face it, his dad wasn’t famous and nobody cares, so why waste his breath.
Instead he goes after Arn Anderson, Wardlow’s wrestling dad, who has abandoned his own son, Brock Anderson. He calls him Ric Flair’s lapdog and says that makes you a legend, right? How many times did Arn win a world title? None? Christian is a multi-time world champion!
We get a hype reel for Darby Allin.
Anna Jay vs. Julia Hart (No Disqualification Match)
Jay blindsides Hart during her entrance with a steel chair and fills the ring with plunder! Julia kicks her and sends her to the floor before ramming her into the barricade! Kendo stick shots, Anna slides back in the ring and takes the stick and returns the favor!
Anna sends her to the floor, drawing her up, snap suplex on the floor! Hart puts her into the post and then again before smashing her into the timekeeper’s table and we go to break!
Back from commercial, Hart throws Jay into the turnbuckles and action goes to the floor again! Julia pulling chairs out from under the ring, Anna hits a Gory Bomb into the pile of chairs! Jay throwing plunder into the ring, back inside, fighting over a suplex, Hart fires an elbow to cut her off!
Chop in the corner, up top, superplex and Julia has it...
Julia Hart wins by submission with the Hartless Lock.
Renee Paquette interviews Best Friends backstage about their trios title match.
Orange Cassidy thinks he has enough room in his backpack for three more belts, and Trent Beretta is enthusiastic about their prospects. Chuck Taylor is prompted to pick their final rule, and they settle on “all witches are banned from ringside”
Best Friends and Baqndido make their entrance and we go to break.
Best Amigos (Bandido, Chuck Taylor, & Trent Beretta) vs. House of Black (Brody King, Buddy Matthews, & Malakai Black) (c) (AEW World Trios Championship)

Black puts him in the corner, striking away, Bandido with a big back elbow but Malakai takes him down into a kneebar!

Bryan Danielson gets up from commentary and stalks after them but Claudio Castagnoli takes them out and throws Matt Jackson off the stage! Nick Jackson gets in Danielson’s face, Bryan warns him to go pay attention to his brother and he dives on Claudio and Wheeler as security try to pull them apart!
Jon Moxley vs. Kenny Omega (Steel Cage Match)
Omega finally in the cage, Moxley joins him and we got a bell!
Trading forearms and into chops, Kenny gets a barbed wire wrapped chair out and smashes Jon in the face with it! Across the back, Mox comes back and kisses the camera as the claret starts to flow down his forehead! Kenny with a kick from teh apron, springboard countered and he crashes into the steel!
Moxley grabs the barbed wire chair and smacks Omega in the back with it while Bryan Danielson laughs! Off the ropes, Kenny with a baseball slide and then a Kotaro Krusher on the barbed wire! Body slam on the wire, Omega’s feeling it, he goes up top and Mox cuts him off!
Jockeying for position... MOXLEY WITH A SUPERPLEX INTO THE BARBED WIRE CHAIR TO SEND US TO BREAK!

Jon Moxley wins by pinfall with a lateral press.
Post-match, referee Paul Turner tries to get Don Callis to leave but he stands there and looks down at the stab wound on Kenny Omega’s forehead. Kenny gets to his knees and Don grabs him again, holding the screwdriver high but he can’t bring himself to drive it home a second time!
He grabs Kenny’s head and says something to him real close before kissing his forehead and shoving him to the mat!
That’s the show, folks.
