AEW Dynamite Results – 7/22/20
Commentary Team: Jim Ross, Excalibur & Tony Schiavone
Cody Rhodes is in the ring for his open challenge… EDDIE KINGSTON IS HERE!
He cuts a promo comparing his childhood to Cody’s and telling Arn Anderson he’ll knock his jaw off his face. He had to grind to survive and Rhodes couldn’t last a day in his shoes. You wanna talk about the sport of pro wrestling? That’s a joke, and everyone he’s face so far has been a child, but Eddie is a grown man who’ll put him in the ground and smile.
And here’s the best thing— Tony Khan paid him to show up, and now he’s gonna pay him to kick ass and take that title. He swears on his beautiful mother’s life if Arn keeps talking he’s gonna gouge his eyes out, and says that Tony told him the match could be no DQ, just Cody has to accept, and is he an egg-sucking dog or an egg-sucking bitch

Jon Moxley cuts a promo.
He says he keeps it real, and if he tells you he’s gonna do something, he does it. Like when he told Taz he was gonna rip Brian Cage’s arm in two, he was this close to six months of rehab, surgery, arm in a sling, good painkillers, the whole nine… and next time, he’s not gonna let go.
MJF makes his entrance and gets on the mic.
He says his opponent is a little nervous and that’s natural, he’s a prodigy with a heart of gold, and he wants to give him an opportunity. He asks him to say a little about Jungle Man, but he counters back that that isn’t his name, he’s Griff Garrison. MJF mocks the guy at length, and when Griff points out he lost at Fyter Fest
MJF W/WARDLOW VS GRIFF GARRISON:
MJF sucker shots Griff with the mic, he wants the mic & tells Griff that they got off on the wrong foot & he lost his temper, he stomps on the hand when Griff won’t say that MJF is undefeated, he goes to say it then shoves the mic in MJF’s throat, rollup for a near fall, MJF with a Lariat then finishes Griff with The Heat Seeker for the win
Tony Schiavone is backstage with Rebel for a health update on Dr. Britt Baker, DMD.
She goes to clarify her name first but Britt calls her in for something or other. The interview goes into Britt’s dressing room, and she tells us that the conspiracy is continuing. We all remember when Hikaru Shida busted her nose and she returned the next week, and how was she paid? Her fragile, fractured nose was targeted and taken advantage of.
This leads to the reveal of Rule #4, “never count out a role model”, and she says she’s set for the biggest comeback of all time.
Brian Cage and Taz come to the ring and Taz gets on the mic.
He says it’s been a difficult week and there’s been a lot of heated discussions. To be frank, Cage was pretty close to firing him but cooler heads prevailed when he explained why he threw the towel in. It was a business decision, because he’ll be damned if he’s gonna stand there and let this Machine have his bicep torn a second time.
He swears that Brian Cage will never be in that position again, he’ll never tap, he’s not wired to tap, and that’s why he’s the FTW World Heavyweight Champion. No surrender, no quit—
Enter Darby Allin, skateboard in hand.

Uno & Stu very unhappy with the result, Page is offering them all to get in the ring, Colt & Mr Brodie Lee also join them on the stage, but Mr Brodie comes down to the ring
Mr Brodie says he’s been nothing but impressed with Hangman, but what he’s not impressed by is his lack of friends and his lack of a tag partner when he’s clearly in immediate danger.
He’s not here to hit him, he just wants to offer him the protection of the Dark Order. Page gets on the mic and says he appreciates the comments and the offer of friendship, but he’s not sure he’s ready to join a cult right now. Brodie says he just made his bed and he hopes he enjoys his sleep in it.
Mr Brodie goes back to the stage and takes Colt to the back with him, leaving the other members of the Dark Order to hit the ring and surround Hangman. He throws the first punch and we got a brawl! That Damned Numbers Game prevails, of course, but here come FTR for the save! Kenny Omega joins the fray as well!
