AEW Dynamite results, live blog (Sept. 6, 2023): All Out fallout

AEW’s Twitter

Here’s a place to check results and comment along with a new episode of AEW Dynamite, airing live tonight (Sept. 6) at 8pm ET on TBS.

AEW will be in Indianapolis’ Indiana Farmers Coliseum as they move on from last Sunday’s historic All Out PPV and an eventful two weeks that also included All In at Wembley Stadium & the firing of CM Punk.

The show will feature World champion MJF addressing his run-in with Samoa Joe about their All Out tussle while the tournament to determine his Grand Slam challenger kicks off with Darby Allin vs. Nick Wayne and Roderick Strong vs. Trent Beretta.

We’ll also hear from Hangman Page, who’s coming off donating his Over Budget Battle Royal winnings to the Chicago Public Education Fund. That’s all that’s advertised as of this writing, but we also expect to see new International champ Jon Moxley... and a whole lot more. You can find a full updated card here.

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

Enjoy the show!


In the shadows of the dark night, you need a woman by your side. She’ll help you make it in the cold light and keep you warm and satisfied, but me? I’m just here to liveblog this here pro wrestling show, folks.

The show opens with Orange Cassidy making his entrance, forehead bandaged, to thunderous “Thank you, Orange!” chants.

He thanks us and says they told him to stay home but he’s not gonna do that. Title or no title, he’ll be here every single week, because he is Freshly Squeezed Orange Cassidy and he does not have a catchphrase.

Jon Moxley makes his entrance, brushing past Orange on his way out.

AR Fox vs. Jon Moxley (c) (AEW International Championship)

Fox starting hot, chops from corner to corner, Moxley returns the favor, to the floor, AR with a huge tope con giro! Fighting over the ropes, Fox with a DDT, only two! Back outside, Jon throws him over the barricade and we go to break.

Back from commercial, Fox throwing lariats, Moxley shrugs them off and wants some more, AR with a kick combo into a neckbreaker and he’s fired up! To the floor and back in, Fox running hot, 450 splash... MOX KICKS OUT! Jon with the overhead elbows, off the ropes, AR cuts him off with a lariat but Moxley returns a lariat!


Jon Moxley wins by pinfall with Death Rider, retaining the AEW International Championship.

Post-match, Darby Allin gets in the ring and raises AR Fox’s hand, putting the water under the bridge.

Nick Wayne is on the tron when he turns around and runs into Christian Cage and Luchasaurus.

Cage asks how he is and says he’s a fine boy but after finding out about Buddy Wayne he went back and watched some footage, he realized he owes Nick an apology— his dad was even worse than he thought! And if he wants a true mentor, maybe he should be looking at a true champion.

Kris Statlander makes her entrance and we go to break.

Emi Sakura vs. Kris Statlander (c) (AEW TBS Championship)

Sakura right out the gates with a Tiger Driver... NOPE! Big chop in the ropes, crossbody through the ropes, Emi hammering her with strikes! Both women going for lariats, Kris with a roundhouse, double lariats and both women are down! Sakura pressing the attack, delayed butterfly backbreaker... SO CLOSE!

Electric chair facebuster from the champ, discus lariat follows, scoop...

Kris Statlander wins by pinfall with Wednesday Night Fever, retaining the AEW TBS Championship.

Roderick Strong cuts a promo about his life, flanked by the Kingdom. He talks about his mom’s drug issues and his dad’s alcoholism, and how he found refuge in wrestling and it’s not a business to him, it’s everything, and he’s gonna win the Grand Slam Tournament.

Aussie Open (Kyle Fletcher & “Dunkzilla” Mark Davis) vs. Le Sex Gods (Chris Jericho & Sammy Guevara)

Don Callis is on commentary for this one.

Davis and Jericho to start, Dunkzilla backing him into the corner and choking him, Chris thumbs his eye and lays chops in to back him off! Pressing the attack, Le Sex Gods posing, Fletcher and Guevara trading chops in the middle of the ring with bravado, whip across, leapfrog, backflip, dropkick to the midsection!

Tag to Jericho, delayed double vertical suplex, and we go to break!

Back from commercial, Guevara lands on his feet off of two consecutive back body drops, tag to Jericho, in hot, shoulder blocks take Dunkzilla off his feet! Passed to the apron, Chris goes up top, axhandle countered, stereo elbows from Aussie Open! Diving uppercut from Sammy takes Mark out but Kyle connects with another elbow!

Codebreaker connects... FLETCHER KICKS OUT! Sammy with a tornillo, Jericho getting fired up, plancha misses and takes Guevara out! Aussie Open run them around the ring for the collision! Back inside, fireman’s carry dropped into a kick, Aussie Arrow... JERICHO KICKS OUT!

Guevara slides in for a Spanish Fly, Jericho gets the double leg on Kyle, reversed! Rising knee sets up a sheerdrop brainbuster... STILL CHRIS WON’T STAY DOWN! Aussies press their luck, despite some miscommunication with Sammy, Jericho has it...

Le Sex Gods win by pinfall with Judas Effect from Chris Jericho.

Post-match, Jericho and Guevara get into a shoving match and security has to pull them apart.

A recap of the strap match between “American Dragon” Bryan Danielson and “Absolute” Ricky Starks follows, also featuring a promo from a defiant Starks about the punishment he took and the point he proved.

A recap of the physicality between Samoa Joe and Maxwell Jacob Friedman follows and we go to break.

Back from commercial, I was out of the room but my darling wife Josie informs that there was a mystery item under a blanket backstage.

Maxwell Jacob Friedman makes his entrance and gets on the mic.

He tells Indianapolis that the devil is here and talks about how he lived in Indiana when he was trying to make it on the indies. He says he went to the back after retaining the tag titles and that mark Tony Khan told him he had to wrestle again on September 20th? But then he remembered that’s Grand Slam, that’s the devil’s den, the home state!

Start spreading the news, because MJF is coming back to New York, New York, and whoever wins the tournament will find out the hard way that nobody is on the level of the devil. But one person in particular might need to be taught a lesson—

Enter Samoa Joe.

He gets on the mic and says he was in the back and heard piss and vinegar in Max’s voice so he wanted a front row seat. So he’s out here, Friedman’s out here, what seems to be the problem, kid? MJF says the only reason he came out here so fast is he confused his music for the ice cream truck.

Samoa says that’s good but the last time he had anything to do with an ice cream truck he was busy being the biggest star on the other company’s network, so again, what’s the problem, kid? Max is upset and calls him Joseph and says he’s quite creative himself, and then calls him Pillsbury Joeboy.

And Samoa Dough. Mecca-lecca-high, your schmeckel’s tiny, Joe. Samoa tells him that his bris was postponed due to lack of material and his time with these midwesterners made him dumb, and again he asks what his problem is, kid. Max loses his cool and says if he calls him kid one more time he’ll knock his teeth down his throat.

Friedman backs off and says that’s what Joe wants so he can skip the line, but sorry there’s a whole tournament if you want to wrestle the champ. He would have bit when he was a kid, and if anybody knows about him as a kid, it’s Joe, right? He asks who’s ready for storytime with MJF and launches in.

When he was 19 he had a tryout in Brooklyn for WWE and he knocked it out of the park because he’s that damn good, and he got pulled aside by William Regal and was told he was too young to get signed and, as we all know, he blew Max off. And we all know that story ended with MJF knocking his British ass out and sending him packing back to NXT, and if Joe plays his cards right, he’s next.

Max talks up the job he was given that night, walking the most diabolical despicable monster to the ring, the great Samoa Joe. It’s true, he might be the worst but Friedman won’t pretend he’s not good. But what did he do? He took a 19-year-old kid and shoved him into a brick wall and laughed.

And he knows why Samoa did that because he knows how scumbags think, because he is one. But the point is he’s not a kid anymore, he’s full grown, a generational talent, and the AEW World Champion, the best wrestler on god’s green earth, and the man who headlined the most historic pay-per-view of all time.

He’s going to kill Joe, and why? Because he’s better than him and he knows it.

Samoa says he didn’t think of him as a kid when he pushed him into that wall, he thought he was a little bitch. He’s gonna enter the tournament, win it, and come for him, and until then, champ? Have a nice day.

MJF leaves and Joe kicks the ropes into his gentleman’s area and puts boots to him before grabbing the title and holding it high! But Friedman recovers and hits him in the gentleman’s area! Into the corner, biting his forehead, Max put boots to him but charges in and gets spiked with the Rock Bottom!

Samoa draws him up and sets him up top for the Muscle Buster... ADAM COLE MAKES THE SAVE!

Medics check on Max and he’s in agony, complaining his left arm is numb.

Joe comes back out and says next time he’ll try to leave it attached, but he can’t guarantee it, and calls him a bitch again.

Roderick Strong shouts at Adam Cole, and he and the Kingdom jaw at Cole on the ramp at length, and we go to break.

Roderick Strong vs. Trent Beretta (AEW World Championship #1 Contender’s Grand Slam Tournament Quarterfinals)

Mat grappling, Strong with a side headlock but Beretta gets the ropes! Collar and elbow, into the corner, Roddy breaks with a single leg, grabbing the other one, Trent slips under, grabs a leg, reversed, Strong with a front chancery to ground him. Side headlock, shot off, drop down, Meteora from Beretta and Roderick rolls to the ropes clutching his neck!

Trent looking for a piledriver, reversed, big chop from Strong! Chops follow, Beretta with his own shots in return, Roddy gets a pendulum backbreaker! Trent comes back with a DDT, Strong rolls to the floor in pain and the Kingdom check on him and we go to break.

Back from commercial, jockeying for position, Beretta with a swinging Death Valley Driver... NOT ENOUGH! Strong with a back suplex lift into the turnbuckles, getting under him, jockeying for position... TRENT WITH AN AVALANCHE FRANKENSTEINER, REVERSED INTO STRONG HOLD, REVERSED INTO A CROSSLEG VICTORY ROLL PIN BUT RODDY KICKS OUT!

Half nelson suplex spikes Strong, Beretta lifts him up, stump piledriver... RODERICK GETS A FOOT ON THE ROPES! Trent looking for an Alabama Slam, Roddy slips out, jumping knee sets him up...

Roderick Strong wins by pinfall with End of Heartache.

Post-match, the Kingdom put the neck brace back on Roddy and carry him around the ring to celebrate!

Renee Paquette interviews Toni Storm backstage.

She doesn’t want to look backwards, she wants to look forwards, and Renee points out there’s a four-way #1 contender’s match for Saraya’s title. Toni says next week, if Paquette is good, she’s going to give her a special look into her life, and until then, chin up, tits out, and watch for the shoe.

Renee is confused, but lo and behold, a shoe comes streaking at her head and she has to duck.

“Hangman” Adam Page makes his entrance and we go to break.

Back from commercial, Tony Schiavone interviews “Hangman” Adam Page in the ring.

He talks about coming to Chicago on a whim when he heard about the charity battle royal and talks about why he picked the Chicago Public Education Fund to give his $50,000 to.

Enter Shane “Swerve” Strickland, with Prince Nana at his side.

Nana demands people give Swerve respect, and Strickland says being in a coffin for two weeks give you clarity, and the first person he thought of when he got back out was Hangman. Charity? Really? Is he AEW’s mascot? Is he happy being on the preshow?

He knows Page isn’t ashamed of himself, but he will be for him, and he talks about how Hangman was the hand-picked franchise player, and look at what he’s done? Tag title, world title, box office records, leading up to All In, an attendance record off his back. Did he lose his confidence or his spine?

He hasn’t gotten new gear in almost a year, no new merchandise, he got a contract extension so he’s been eating good and it’s been showing. He doesn’t have singles matches or promos on Dynamite, and when was the last time he had a title match? He’s taken a back seat to the Elite because he’s gotten comfortable.

So option a, ride off into the sunset and let his contract fizzle out, move out of the way and let Swerve take his spot and he’ll turn it into his house. Or option b, cowboy up and find that spirit and fire and show everyone what Cowboy Shit is all about.

Or they could fight for that spot, but forewarning, Swerve has zero empathy for human life and he’ll walk him like a dog. But either way, he’s coming for that spot.

Adam leaves, Strickland has a snipe about his wife and kids and Hangman charges right back in and gets in his face... AND BRIAN CAGE ATTACKS HIM FROM BEHIND AND POWERBOMBS HIM! DRILL CLAW!

Commentary hypes up Rampage and Collision for us and we get a promos from Jay Lethal, Penta el Zero M, and Jeff Hardy, about their tournament matches and how they’re gonna win.

Darby Allin vs. Nick Wayne (AEW World Championship #1 Contender’s Grand Slam Tournament Quarterfinals)

Hot start, trading quick pins, Wayne with a waistlock, struggle, Allin puts him on the floor and dives but Nick sidesteps and we go to break!

Back from commercial, Allin bringing the fight to Wayne, chops in the corner, double crossbody in the middle of the ring! Pace running fast, stalemate, fistbump and they start throwing devastating haymakers at each other, Darby tells him he hits like an 18-year-old and tells him to punch like he wants to win!

Hands behind his back, he lets Nick wind up... SUPERKICK FOR TWO! Christian Cage and Luchasaurus make their entrance and we go to break.

Back from commercial, we see Roderick Strong and the Kingdom watching backstage as we’re informed we’re staying with this match until it’s over! Allin on the floor, Wayne off the top... FROG SPLASH TO THE FLOOR! Back inside, Ace Crusher... SO CLOSE!

We see that Christian Cage has joined commentary, in there somewhere. Up top, Allin knocks him down, he perches, deciding against it, he heads to the mat and covers Nick... NOPE! Wayne tries Last Supper, not enough, Wayne’s World blocked, O’Connor roll, splash on the kickout, still no!

Crucifix pin sets up a Yoshi Tonic... STILL NO! Wrists clutched, stomps to the back of the head...

Darby Allin wins by submission with a double wristlock Can Opener.

Post-match, Christian says some vaguely threatening things and goes to the stage to applaud Darby.

That’s the show, folks.
