AEW Dynamite Results – 4/8/20
Top Secret Arena
Commentary Team: Tony Schiavone & Chris Jericho
Jericho is joining Tony at the announce booth tonight
Jake ‘The Snake’ Roberts opens up with “my history will not be my destiny” before spinning scenarios of hopping in front of a moving train or jumping out of a plane without a parachute… or stand across the ring from Lance Archer without a prayer of winning. All three things lead to the same result— you are done. You saw what happened to poor Marko Stunt. Nobody else wanted it, and he took an opportunity to prove that he was willing and a man.
Well sometimes it’s better to be thought a fool than speak up and remove all doubt, and Marko is an idiot. Cody Rhodes might just get beaten by Shawn Spears, and that’d surprise everybody but Jake, who suggests that he might lose intentionally to avoid Lance Archer and asks Cody to squeak up

Broken Matt Hardy has a reply to the hole of the ass, Chris Jericho.
Sammy Guevara is a false god & questions if he is even latino & wagers that Guevara can’t even speak Spanish, he can’t wait to eat Santana and Ortiz because he loves Puerto Rican food, Jake Hager’s been brainwashed into a Jakenstein who just needs the bolts in his neck. He will not and cannot let the circle that is internal take over AEW, and to try and recruit Vanguard 1 with a t-shirt? He asks the drone to bring the t-shirt, but he brings Matt’s new shirt to him.
