AEW Dynamite results, live blog (June 28, 2023): Forbidden Door fallout

AEW’s Twitter

Here’s a place to check results and comment along with a new episode of AEW Dynamite, airing tonight (June 21) at 8 pm ET on TBS.

AEW’s Canadian tour continues after kicking off last weekend, with Dynamite coming our way from Hamilton, Ontario’s FirstOntario Centre. Several of the announced matches spill out from Sunday’s Forbidden Door PPV, like the Tornado Tag between Sting & Darby Allin and Chris Jericho & Sammy Guevara. Jon Moxley vs. Tomohiro Ishii has its roots in the Blackpool Combat Club/Elite battle in Toronto, and we expect Jungle Boy Jack Perry’s promo segment to focus on his turning heel by attacking on former tag partner HOOK. The Blind Tag Tournament draw continues, and we’ll hear from the first team picked last week — MJF & Adam Cole. Another tournament continues when Dr. Britt Baker faces Ruby Soho in the first round of the Owen Hart — and more!

Come right back here at 8 pm ET when the Dynamite live blog kicks off once the show starts on TNT. It will be below this line here.

Enjoy the show!


The minstrel in the gallery looked down upon the smiling faces. He met the gazes, observed the spaces between the old men’s cackle, but me? I’m just here to liveblog this pro wrestling show for you, folks.

The show opens with the intro video.

Jon Moxley vs. Tomohiro Ishii

Trading chops out the gates, hammer and tongs! Moxley ducks an enzuigiri, Ishii sidesteps a knee and they go forehead-to-forehead! Trading forearms now, trading bites, Jon grabs his hands and stomps his head in before dumping him to the floor! Referee Stephon Smith keeping an eye on Claudio Castagnoli and Wheeler Yuta, Mox dives and wipes Tom out and we go to break!

Back from commercial, Ishii sets Moxley up top, superplex connects... NOPE! Trading forearms, finally Jon drops him with a wicked rolling elbow! A nearfall, setting up the overhead elbows, looking for the bulldog choke but Tom manages to pivot to keep him from getting all of it. trading suplexes and Mox hits a lariat for one!

Ishii with his own lariat, and Jon also kicks out at one! Trading knee tremblers, still just one counts! Both men down and out, headbutts from their knees and to their feet, both men bloodied, moving to slaps! Tom with a big headbutt, off the ropes, Jon hits a DDT... ISHII KICKS OUT!

Tom hits a Paradigm Shift, off the ropes with a lariat... STILL NO! Following it up, sliding lariat... NOT ENOUGH! Moxley, covered in blood, gets another nearfall, Tom sidesteps a Blackout but a second connects, underhooks...

Jon Moxley wins by pinfall with Death Rider.

Post-match, Moxley cold-shoulders Eddie Kingston on his way out.

Renee Paquette is in a loading dock to interview Adam Cole.

Another vehicle pulls up and inside is Maxwell Jacob Friedman to interrupt.

He congratulates Adam Cole on “getting sick” to avoid Forbidden Door and says he thinks they got off on the wrong foot and the tag tournament is a huge opportunity for them. Cole isn’t on the level of the devil, but he’s close, and they could run this entire company together.

So he wants to do a little bonding this weekend, bro to bro. Adam is skeptical but agrees! He says he’s gonna go say hello to some people and then he’ll see him later. Max cuts him off and asks his driver for the gift he got Adam Cole, and the gift is “Better than you, bay bay” tag team t-shirts, available now on!

Adam walks off in disgust and we go to break.

Back from commercial, Renee Paquette interviews her husband, Jon Moxley.

She berates him asking what the hell that was out there, and soon Eddie Kingston rolls up to argue with Jon.

He says he has his back but Claudio’s as scumbag, Mox asks who cares about some Chikara bullshit, Kingston says he cares, Renee pulls them apart and jabs Eddie in the chest with a finger and tells him to fix this because she’s done!

We get a Kenny Omega video package where he says he lost on Sunday not because of Don Callis, but because Will Ospreay was the better man, and he’s not done with him yet.

El Hijo del Vikingo, Keith Lee, & Orange Cassidy vs. Jericho Appreciation Society (“Cool Hand” Angelo Parker, “Red Death” Daniel Garcia, & “Daddy Magic” Matt Menard)

Vikingo and Garcia to start, Hijo overwhelms him with lucha libre, tags to Parker and Cassidy, Angelo comes his hair and Orange steals the comb and puts it in his pants! Menard runs in, hands in Cassidy’s pants as he starts evasions, hesitation dropkick, Daniel tags in and Orange brushes his hair!

Cassidy with a deathlock bow and arrow, Vikingo off the top with a double stomp, running shooting star press, no good! JAS working him over now, quick tags, and we go to break!

Back from commercial, Menard goes for a powerbomb on Vikingo and he gets it! Tag to Garcia, hammer whip, stacking Hijo up for an elbow drop, only two! Tag to Lee, he comes in a house afire, chaos on the ramp, Vikingo with an Orihara moonsault! Back inside, Dragontamer blocked, Garcia switches gears, piledriver for two, crucifix for two!

Orange wants Beach Break, denied, back to the Dragontamer! Vikingo back in, the match breaks down, Orange Punch takes Parker out, Lee is legal again! Daddy Magic in a fireman’s carry, elbows, Keith fades briefly but stands back up straight... GROUND ZERO! IT’S OVER!

El Hijo del Vikingo, Keith Lee, & Orange Cassidy win by pinfall with Ground Zero from Lee on Matt Menard.

Hung Bucks cut a promo about their trios open challenge and Dark Order immediately roll up and interrupt the promo.

John Silver says if they want three men, they’ll kick their ass. Hangman says they’ll make it a twelve-man if they want in on it but Alex Reynolds says they’re here to fight after he didn’t talk to them for months. Page apologizes, Evil Uno berates him for abandoning them.

Adam says it wasn’t about leaving them, it was about fighting Blackpool, not babysitting them. Reynolds says tonight they’re not friends anymore, they’re his opponents.

We get a recap of Bryan Danielson beating Kazuchika Okada with a broken arm at Forbidden Door, and we go to break.

Back from commercial, Renee Paquette interviews Chris Jericho and Sammy Guevara.

Jericho says he and Sting were in the ring together for the very first time a few days ago, but tonight is a little bit bigger. Jericho and Sting should be on TBS right? Commentated by Tony Schiavone, just like it should have been years ago. Sting asked for more time, well tonight he gets his nightmare.

He’s going into the primoridal ooze of Chris Jericho to bring the Painmaker up.

Dark Order (Alex Reynolds, Evil Uno, & John Silver) vs. Hung Bucks (“Hangman” Adam Page, Matt Jackson, & Nick Jackson)

Reynolds and Nick to start, Alex working a hammerlock, shift to a wristlock, Jackson reverses, arm drag into an armbar! Another big arm drag, Nick fired up, tags to Silver and Page! Perfect gentlemen, each offering the other the first shot, backing off, circling, collar and elbow, Hangman with a headlock takeover!

Adam kicks him, John powers up and reminds all he’s frickin’ jacked, baby! Waistlock, grounding Hangman, tags to Uno and Matt! Evil blasts Hangman off the apron, front kick to Jackson, double whip, Jackson with a front kick, drop down, Nick throwing dropkicks with his brother and the Bucks stave off the Dark Order and we go to break!

Back from commercial, Reynolds Frankensteiners Matt into the turnbuckles, big knee takes Nick out, and the path is clear! Uno and Page jawing, Hangman tags in to trade forearms with Evil! Dives take the Bucks out, Dark Order have Hangman isolated, quick moves, double pin... ADAM PAGE WON’T STAY DOWN FOR THE BEAVER BOYS!

Looking for Buckshot, the Young Bucks encourage him before taking out Reynolds and Uno with dives, but Silver is ready, Frankensteiner... NOT ENOUGH! Backslide rolled into knees and kicks, Page gets under him and hits Deadeye! Wrists clutched... BTE TRIGGER! Hangman in position...

Hung Bucks win by pinfall with Buckshot from Adam Page on John Silver.

Post-match, Blackpool Combat Club with Konosuke Takeshita and Don Callis attack the Hung Bucks and Mox stabs Hangman in the eye with a screwdriver again! Eddie Kingston tries to make the save but YUTA puts him in a cross armbar and Claudio Castagnoli opens a chair and literally sits on him!

Jon Moxley issues the challenge to the Elite— Blood & Guts, July 19 in Boston!

We get a hype reel for the two of our men’s first round Owen Hart Foundation Tournament matches and we go to break.

Back from commercial, Adam Cole meets up with Roderick Strong in the parking lot.

Strong tells him not to trust MJF, and Cole says he’s just playing along for now.

Speak of the devil, Maxwell Jacob Friedman rolls up to try and get Adam to leave with him, Cole agrees and wishes Roddy luck in his match against Samoa Joe.

“Jungle Boy” Jack Perry makes his entrane in shades.

He cuts his music and says we’re never hearing Tarzan Boy again because we’ve ruined it for him. He’s got a car ready to take him to the airport and the crowd here are all stuck with the wildfires.

He climbs in the ring and says he’s still young, cashing fat checks, and banging the hottest bitch in this entire place. He says after everything he’s done and given to this place and being robbed of not one but two world championships, you expect him to sit and watch some entitled second generation prick dangle his championship in his face?

The funny thing is that belt isn’t even officially recognized by AEW, and for the same reason that he doesn’t recognize HOOK— because he’s a fraud. He never needed HOOK, and JungleHOOK was only worth anything because of him, and HOOK was lucky to be standing next to him.

And whether or not the FTW is recognized he knows what it means to HOOK and to his family, and that’s exactly why he’s going to take it.

HOOK comes down, Jungle Boy runs away and HOOK gives chase through the crowd!

Cameras go backstage where Perry is still running and dives into the back seat of a car ready to drive off. A frustrated HOOK throws a garbage can around and storms off.

Sammy Guevara makes his entrance to do the cue card gimmick and we go to break.

Alexia Nicole vs. Ruby Soho

Soho takes her down, hammering forearms, action to the floor, back inside, Saito Suplex, this match is just all Ruby as she hits a second Saito and pulls up on the pin, not satisfied! She backs referee Paul Turner into the corner and steals one of his Blood Gloves (tm) (c) and puts Alexia in Lockjaw to send a message!

Ruby Soho wins by submission with Lockjaw.

Post-match, Ruby Soho gets on the mic and calls Dr. Britt Baker, DMD out, saying that because of how filthy and germ-ridden Canada is, she’s sick, but don’t worry, next week they’ll have their Owen Hart qualifier. She takes a shot at Adam Cole for missing Forbidden Door and says she hopes they nevr have kids because they’ll be weak little bastards.

She tells Britt to get her head out of the toilet and look at her, and says Baker said she didn’t know who she was once upon a time, but she loves who she is now, who she is standing with the Outcasts, but does Britt like who she is? Last year, Baker barely beat her in the finals on her best day, and since then they’ve taken anything and everything that means anything to her, and next week she’s gonna take her opportunity to win the Owen again away from, until she’s left with exactly what she is— nothing.

We get a recap of Anthony Bowens rebuffing that lady from QTV because he’s gay to the acclaim of the crowd.

Johnny TV is now in production and he says Matt Hardy and Isiah Kassidy are gonna find out on Friday.

Commentary hypes up Rampage and we go to break.

Darby Allin & Sting vs. Le Sex Gods (“Painmaker” Chris Jericho & Sammy Guevara) (Tornado Tag Team Match)

Jericho whacks Sting in the arm with a bat and the Icon grabs his own bat and they have a bat fight! Backed into the corner, stacking splashes, Guevara takes Allin out with a diving Ace Crusher and then attacks Sting from behind with Chris. Hard whip into the barricade, suplex puts Darby into the apron and we go to break!

Back from commercial, Guevara springboards off the barricade into an Ace Crusher on Allin! Throwing him inside, Sting comes over and clobbers Sammy with punches! Jericho right there with his protege... COFFIN DROP OFF THE TOP AND TO THE FLOOR TAKES GUEVARA OUT! Stinger Splash on the barricade for Y2J!

Sting and Darby set two tables up next to each other, Allin sets a ladder up in the ring, next to the ropes, directing the Icon to put Sammy on the tables as he climbs and Sting steadies the ladder before telling Darby he’s got it... 64-YEAR-OLD STING DIVES OFF THE LADDER AND SPLASHES SAMMY THROUGH THE TABLE!

Back inside, Darby double stomps Jericho through his skateboard... NOT ENOUGH! Jericho plays hardcore Feng Shui with the ladder and the delay lets Allin put him face-first into the end of the ladder! Springboard... CHRIS BLASTS HIM WITH HIS OWN SKATEBOARD! JUDAS EFFECT CONNECTS BUT ALLIN FALLS OUT OF THE RING!

Sting is back in the ring, inverted facelock, Jericho reverses to the Walls of Jericho! The Icon crawls and grabs a bat from under the ropes and blasts him in the head with the bat! Stinger Splash, a second try but Chris hits the Codebreaker! Bleeding hard, he goes for Judas Effect but Sting ducks it, Scorpion Death Drop... NOPE!

Sting sets him up...

Darby Allin & Sting win by submission with the Scorpion Deathlock from Sting on Chris Jericho.

That’s the show, folks.
