AEW Dynamite Results – 9/9/20
Commentary Team: Jim Ross, Excalibur & Tony Schiavone
Tony Schiavone in the parking lot earlier today as Chris Jericho and Maxwell Jacob Friedman arrive at the arena.
Jericho says MJF got robbed and everybody saw Jon Moxley cheat by hitting Paradigm Shift, but it’s okay, because he guarantees Friedman will be champion soon. Max says that coming from a legend means the world to him, and the fact that he had to even touch “that soulless ginger prick” is criminal, but he promises him that one day he’s going to regain the title.
They exchange pleasantries and walk off, and split-screen cameras catch them both saying that the other is a loser under their breath as they walk away
JURASSIC EXPRESS VS THE LUCHA BROS:
Boy blocks the Fear Factor, Express with a Wheelbarrow Compelte Shot for a 2 count, Pentagon throws his glove at Saurus, Saurus responds with a goozle, but Pentagon breaks the grip, Springboard Crossbody, Boy with a Tope Suicida on Fenix, Pentagon shoves Boy into a Superkick for a 2 count, Saurus with The Widow Maker on Fenix, Chokeslam then a Standing Moonsault, but Pentagon makes the save, Fenix with a Gory Bomb on Boy, Slingblade to Saurus, Lungblower on Boy, Bros look for the kill, Zero Fear connects, but only gets a near fall, Pentagon looks for a Destroyer, but Boy evades and Pentagon hits Fenix with it by mistake & Boy pins Fenix for the win
WINNERS: JURASSIC EXPRESS
Bros are almost ready to explode utcher and the Blade hit the ring to keep the peace between the brothers and Eddie Kingston gets in the ring and on the mic. He asks if they’re done and tells them to stop it. He says their little British friend isn’t here, he’s here, and he asks Pepper Parks where his wife is.
He brings up the Casino Battle Royale, saying there were five of them and Fenix kicked Blade in the face? Accident his ass. And where was Penta? They should be running this place, not fighting each other, and he demands they shake hands. Instead, the Lucha Brothers get into a shoving match.
Eddie puts an arm around Penta and says he’s his best friend but Fenix is his brother and he should shake his hand. Fenix offers a hand, Kingston asks him nicely again and the brothers shake hands and hug. Eddie says he was never eliminated from the battle royal and tells us to look up the rules.
Commentary hypes up the rest of tonight’s card for us.
Jake “the Snake” Roberts cuts a promo standing in front of Lance Archer in the rain.
He calls Jon Moxley out and says he and Archer trash cars and like getting wet, and Moxley’s gonna sweat and piss himself when they get ahold of him. Lance speaks, saying Jon had nothing but time to prepare for the guys that came before him, but he has nothing but despair to look forward to when he steps in the ring with the Murderhawk Monster because everybody dies
Matt Hardy makes his entrance.
He gets on the mic and thanks the crowd, saying it’s amazing to actually be in an arena with a live audience and revel in their emotion. And he thanks us watching at home before addressing his “very, very scary fall” from All Out. He knows it frightened a lot of people, and over the last couple days the outpouring of love and support has been overwhelming.
He’s very happy to stand in front of us and say that, after a battery of tests, he’s expected to make a full recovery. He’s a lucky man and he calls his beautiful family out, pointing Reby out in the crowd with their newborn and his two other sons at home. He apologizes for the match at All Out not being what it could have been, but he’s glad his feud with Sammy Guevara is over before anybody got hurt even worse.
Now it’s time for him to get back to getting healthy, and when he’s cleared he’s going to come back and start winning matches and chase his first AEW Championship. His journey isn’t over, and a large part of that is down to the fans, and he thanks them again.
ANGELICO VS ORANGE CASSIDY:
Navarro Doce, but Orange fights out, Bully Choke, Orange makes it to the rope, Elbow Suicida, back in the ring with a Diving Crossbody followed by a Satellite DDT then dims Angelico’s lights with The Orange Punch for the win
WINNER: ORANGE CASSIDY
Jack Evans argues with referee Bryce Remsburg before Santana and Ortiz hit the ring with a collapsible baton and the madball, beating Cassidy down! Best Friends make the save! Chuck Taylor gets on the mic and calls them out for attacking them from behind and destroying Sue’s van.
He says this has to end, and next week, they want to finally do the parking lot match they booked way back in March! Trent gets on the mic and says they’re not coming to have fun next week, they’re coming to hurt them and to make his mama proud!
Alex Marvez is knocking on the Young Bucks’ dressing room door hoping for an interview.
He initially gets no answer but the door opens as soon as he starts talking again and the Bucks lay him out with a Superkick Party!
Kip Sabian and Penelope Ford make their entrance.
Kip waves Tony Schiavone out of the ring and takes charge of the segment. He says everybody wants to know who his best man is, and he’s not going to take too long to get to the point. He waves to the entrance area and New York indie wrestler Puf comes out! Kip runs up to the stage and says he appreciates that he subscribed to his Twitch channel, but he’s not his best man, he’s just “the best.”
Sabian introduces his best man again… and Brian Pillman, Jr. comes to the ring! But again his is a case of mistaken identity, because Kip texted him that he’s “the best, man” with a comma, and they’re not even friends, so he waves him off.
Third time’s the charm, and we get entrance music this time, so you know it’s real.
He’s shot from behind… IT’S RUSEV DAY Y’ALL! MIRO IS HERE IN AEW! AND HE’S BLONDE!
He gets on the mic and says ten years in the same house under the same glass ceiling with an imaginary brass ring… well you can take that brass ring and shove it up your ass! Elite recognizes elite, and he loves Kip and of course he’ll be his best man, but he didn’t pick him because he’s a best man, but because he’s THE best man.
You tune into his Twitch, you see he’s the best gamer, well in AEW you’ll see him take guys out night after night. His name is Miro, and he’s All Elite.
We get a sit-down interview with “Hangman” Adam Page.
He says he’s feeling good and Tony Schiavone asks him to can the stock answer. Page says they had fans at All Out, and not many, and you could have heard them, but he didn’t. For thirty minutes he didn’t hear anyone make a sound, and it was like everyone was holding their breath, like they knew it was inevitable that they’d lose their tag titles and fall apart.
But he doesn’t think it was inevitable— FTR shouldn’t have had that title shot in the first place. Kenny was right, the Young Bucks should have won the gauntlet, and it’s his fault that he’s lost two of his best friends and he was stupid enough to think that FTR were like him just because they look like him and act like him.
He’s like everybody else, full of blood and bones, but he feels like he’s actually full of poison. He says this is probably his toughest test, but he’s gonna get through it.
THE INNER CIRCLE VS JOEY JANELA & SONNY KISS:
Double Hotshot then a Double Bulldog and Dropkick, Kiss with a Spinning Heel Kick , Stereo Missile Dropkicks take Inner Circle down, Janela lights up Jericho with a chair to the back, he looks to launch off it, but Jericho catches him with a Back Suplex, Kiss with a rollup on Hager for a 2 count, Basement Superkick, but Jericho makes the save, Hager with a Northern Lariat, Hager Bomb, but Kiss gets the trash can up, Cactus Clothesline takes Jericho to the ramp, Jericho sends Janela into the lighting rig, Catapult Spinebuster combo through a table, Kiss with Diving Crossbody takes down both of the Inner Circle, Axes & Os then a Rolling Elbow to Hager, up top, but Jericho with the fire extinguisher and Hager catches him with the Sambo Suplex into the Kata-Gatame which keeps Kiss down for the win
WINNERS: THE INNER CIRCLE
Jericho gets on the mic and says the Inner Circle had a terrible night of losses at All Out and Sammy Guevara’s out hurt, but now it’s the future and Hager and he are going to commit to running up victories in the tag division and come for the titles.
MJF gets a promo from his campaign office where he decries “Dictator Jon” for cheating like a coward, but you can’t blame a scorpion for stinging you and he’s figured out who’s to blame— this campaign was supposed to create change, give hope to the hopeless, and make him a world champion, but they all blew it and they’re all fired!
He orders them to get out and gets in Nina’s face for smiling and says she’s sick of her disgusting crooked yellow teeth. Wardlow addresses him from behind and MJF berates him for costing him the title, too, calling him an illiterate oaf before laughing and asking if they have a problem, because the last he checked, Tony Khan doesn’t sign his checks, he does.
Anyone in their right mind would have fired him after Saturday, but MJF is his only friend and the only one who sees the potential in him, so he better get his act together lest he put his whole family out on the street. Wardlow says they don’t have a problem and MJF says now is a time for planning to get back on top, where they belong.
Jon Moxley cuts a promo.
He says he saw Lance Archer earn his title shot at All Out and said to himself, “Son of a bitch, this isn’t getting any easier,” but that’s just how it should be. You can campaign for it or litigate for it, the only way to be AEW World Champion is to crawl through a mountain of crap and come out the other side.
Looking at the numbers on paper you might think he’s going into a wood chipper against Archer, but it’s not about that, it’s about what he feels in his heart, his soul, and deep down in his guts, and he knows he’s unstoppable. Lance is just a man, and when their paths cross, all you have to ask yourself is do you really want to bet against Jon Moxley?
Tully Blanchard is in the ring with FTR and he puts his boys over as the greatest tag team champions in the world. He recounts the details of their victory and Cash Wheeler takes over, putting the tag division over as the deepest and best in the world, and he points them out at ringside. FTR might be undefeated in AEW, but they’ve had to fight for each of those victories.
It was a dream to wrestle SCU, who they grew up watching, and imagine if they were still in their prime, if this was twenty years ago? Private Party they don’t have much to say about, and Dax Harwood takes over and says they’re the locker room leaders and the top guys now here in AEW. He calls Billy Gunn out as a legend but he and his snot-nosed kid aren’t jumping to the front of the line.
Next week, Jurassic Express have a match against them, but don’t get it twisted, it ain’t a title shot, they’ll have to earn that. They’ll never let a comedy gimmick run their division, and they offer a toast to the dumbass dinosaur, which leads to an abortive brawl. FTR get away, but Stunt dumps the ice bucket onto them and the various tag teams divide FTR’s celebratory cake up amongst themselves
Taz is hearing some scuttlebutt that Darby Allin is here.
Darby’s music plays, but Ricky Starks makes his entrance, painted up like Darby.
He gets on the mic and says it finally happened, he got injured. He dislocated his pinky and he’s got thumbtacks in his foot and he can’t go skateboarding with his friends. He says Allin writes it everywhere that he’s relentless, or is it that he’s reckless? There’s a reason nobody wants to tag with him and he sits by himself in the back, and it’s because he’s reckless.
But Starks will show him the meaning of relentless, and the next time Darby shows his face here, he’s going to beat his ass.
TAY CONTI VS NYLA ROSE:
Conti with a Question Mark Kick then a rollup for a near fall, Kneebar, Nyla rips at the face to break the hold, Conti tries for the Sunset Flip, but Nyla counters into a Tree Slam, Chokeslam countered with a Sol Naciente, Nyla powers up & hits The Beast Bomb for the win
WINNER: NYLA ROSE
Vickie Guerrero asks to be excused. She says the Vicious Vixens are here to make a statement and they’re not going anywhere, which leads Nyla to draw Conti up again but Hikaru Shida makes the save with a kendo stick in hand before anything can happen!
The Bucks were fined 5K each for Superkicking Marvez
Kenny Omega has a sitdown interview with Jim Ross.
He says these things happen, and when you’ve done this for twenty years at the highest level, winning and losing belts is all part of the game. He agrees that he and Page had chemistry that held them together in the ring, and that’s why he thought this is what he was meant to do in AEW. He had expectations of being a singles star put upon him, to be the ace of the company, and he lost his way.
It wasn’t until he found Hangman that he found a sense of purpose, and he says they have such a deep tag team division, and to get to the level they got they had to dig deep and learn about themselves, and what he learned about Adam Page, he doesn’t particularly like. They had a good run, but Hangman had better make other plans if he’s thinking about trying to reconcile.
He gave a year of his life to tag team wrestling, but it’s time to go back to singles action.
Commentary hypes up next week’s show for us and explains that next week’s airdate is up in the air due to NBA playoffs.
AEW TNT Championship DUSTIN RHODES VS MR BRODIE LEE:

WINNER & STILL AEW TNT CHAMPION: MR BRODIE LEE
Dark Order comes to the ring with QT Marshall slung over Stu Grayson’s shoulders, but Lee shoves at Colt Cabana and yells at him to stay out of the ring. Evil Uno takes Cabana off backstage, giving him what appears to be a pep talk as Lee kicks Rhodes low!
He poses with the title over Dustin’s fallen body as the show ends
