AEW DYNAMITE RESULTS (2/23/2022)

This week's show kicks off with the usual theme song and cold open video and then we shoot live inside the Webster Bank Arena in Bridgeport, CT. where Jim Ross welcomes us to the show with his trademark, "It's Wednesday night, and you know what that means ..." catchphrase.

Tag-Team Battle Royale

From there, we head down to the ring after fireworks and pyro explode. The theme song for the AEW World Tag-Team Champions make their way out accompanied by Christian Cage. They will be getting a first hand look at the Tag-Team Battle Royale to determine the first opponents who will challenge Jurassic Express for the titles in the triple threat match at the upcoming AEW Revolution pay-per-view.

One member of The Butcher & The Blade is eliminated, as The Blade is tossed over the top. Both members must be eliminated for the team as a whole to be eliminated. Also thrown out is one member of The Gunn Club. A few moments later The Blade is tossed out.

As the action continues, we see Marq Queen thrown over the top. Isiah Kassidy is also tossed out, however Matt Hardy catches him and props him back on the ring apron. He is immediately dropkicked out and eliminated anyways. Matt Hardy ends up walking away from then as they head to the back.

Alex Reynolds of The Dark Order was eliminated a few minutes ago, and Santana from the Proud -N- Powerful duo is the lone member of his team still in the ring, as Ortiz has been eliminated. Nick Jackson gets tossed out, so only one member of The Young Bucks remains. Bobby Fish is eliminated just as Excalibur talks us into a commercial break as the action continues.

When we return from the mid-match commercials, we see Tully Blanchard trying to help FTR eliminate John Silver of The Dark Order only for Cash Wheeler to end up eliminated instead.

We see a stand off between Santana and Trent Beretta which pops the crowd. The commentators remind the viewing audience at home of the Parking Lot Brawl to explain why. We see Kyle O'Reilly and Matt Jackson work together to end up eliminating them both.

O'Reilly and Dax Harwood fight out to the ring apron on the other side of the ring ropes. They continue to duke it out as they teeter back and forth nearing elimination. Bobby Fish, who was already eliminated, ends up yanking Harwood out to eliminate him.

We're down to Matt Jackson and Kyle O'Reilly as the final two, which leads to O'Reilly scoring the final elimination to win the match for reDRagon.

Winners: reDRagon

After The Match: "Storytime With Adam Page"

After the bout we see The Young Bucks head back into the ring to have a stand off with reDRagon. "Hangman" Adam Page's music hits and he makes his way to the ring.

From behind, Adam Cole tries a sneak attack only for the AEW World Champion to get the better of him.

Page sits down on a steel chair in the ring and asks the crowd who is ready for "storytime with Adam Page ...bay-bay!" to mock Adam Cole. He talks about his recent history as reDRagon and Adam Cole watch from the aisle.

Tony Schiavone Backstage With Bryan Danielson

We head backstage where Tony Schiavone is standing by with Bryan Danielson. He brings up his match tonight and "The American Dragon" vows to give another lesson in violence, this time to Daniel Garcia.

He then brings up Jon Moxley and his offer and how he wants his answer tonight. We then head to another commercial break.

MJF Finally Responds To CM Punk's Dog Collar Match Challenge

We return from the break to the familiar sounds of MJF's theme song. The Pinnacle leader makes his way to the ring and brings up the picture that Punk showed on last week's show when issuing the dog collar match challenge.

He goes on to get emotional and tells a story about being a kid with A.D.D. and how his love for pro wrestling used to be the only thing that got him out of bed in the morning. He says he loves pro wrestling and he loves AEW.

MJF then reflects on the picture Punk showed of him on that fateful Friday when he was a young kid. He says he was only one of a couple Jewish kids in his school and tells a story about kids throwing quarters at him as hard as they could while yelling, "pick them up jew-boy!"

Friedman says he cried himself to sleep that night. Then he woke up and remembered it was Friday and he was going to get to see his hero CM Punk at an autograph signing.

He then fast-forwards to the date that CM Punk quit WWE and loses his cool, getting emotional as he yells out, "You left me! You quit on me!"

He moves on to the dog collar match and says he can whip him with the chain and make him bleed buckets of blood, but he won't quit like CM Punk did on him. He wraps up with his "I'm better than you, and you know it" catchphrase.

Out comes CM Punk with no music playing. He gets in the ring and looks confused as he tries to see if the emotional MJF is being for real.

MJF finally turns and exits the ring and with his head down, walks to the back as we head to another commercial break. This was really, really good.

Team 2.0 & Daniel Garcia Respond To Bryan Danielson

As we settle back in from the break, we see Team 2point0 and Daniel Garcia backstage with Tony Schiavone. He asks them about the comments from Bryan Danielson earlier this evening.

Garcia talks briefly after some opening remarks from Matt Lee and Jeff Parker. He makes it clear that a lesson in violence is something he doesn't need, as he was born and bred in it.

Malakai Black & Brody King vs. PAC & Penta El Zero Miedo

We then head back to the ring for our second match of the evening.

On that note, out comes Malakai Black and Brody King with a modified look and entrance. The duo then settles into the ring.

They await the entrance of their opposition, and then PAC's theme song hits and "The Bastard" makes his way out. After him, complete with a giant Jake Paul-style robot behind him comes Penta El Zero Miedo.

This one gets off with an explosive start as all four guys begin brawling and duking it out all over the place. When order is finally restored, we see Penta hit a crazy flipping top rope splash for a close near fall.

We head to a mid-match commercial break as the action continues. When we return, we see Brody King take over and hit a big splash that knocks one member of the duo from Death Triangle out, while he connects with a big dive that knocks the other to the floor.

After a couple minutes of back and forth action, we see Malakai Black with another mist-spraying spot that leads to the finish, only this time Penta avoids the mist and Malakai chokes on it as Penta scores the pin fall victory.

Winners: PAC & Penta El Zero Miedo

After The Match: Buddy Matthews Joins The House Of Black

After the match, we see Malakai choke on his mist as Brody continues his assault on PAC and Penta.

Malakai finally recovers from choking on the mist and he grabs a shovel and heads into the ring with it. As he lifts it above the head of his opposition, the lights go out.

When they come back on, we see Buddy Matthews standing in the ring across from Malakai and Brody. The sight of the former WWE Superstar known as Buddy Murphy elicits an enormous pop from the fans in Bridgeport.

After a moment or so, we see Matthews turn and beat down PAC and Penta some more.

Malakai and Brody join back in and then they stand tall together to end the surprising post-match scene. We then head to another commercial break.

Eddie Kingston & Chris Jericho Go Face-To-Face

When we return from the break, Eddie Kingston makes his way to the ring and settles in as we see security guards standing against the ropes.

Out next as the fans sing along I'd Chris Jericho. His music cuts off and then the two get this segment started.

"The Mad King" starts first, noting he doesn't know what this is supposed to be. He says he's not a sports entertainer, and asks Tony Khan to bring out some women wrestlers for a match or something.

He says he's not a sports entertainer like Jericho, he's a fighter. He says if he wants to sports entertain, go down the block.

Jericho says Greenwich, CT. is right down the road and in that spirit he will do some sports entertaining. He tells the crowd not to worry, his won't suck.

He goes on to tell a story about how when he came to AEW he didn't know who Eddie Kingston was. He then realized why -- it's because he looks like a jobber. Kingston chuckled and then Jericho continues.

From there, he says he saw Kingston work against "what's his name" and cut a promo and realized he's the real deal.

Kingston tries cutting in but Jericho says he's not done. He talks about how he's afraid to be a winner, and he's afraid to win the big one.

Finally, a match is made between the two for the AEW Revolution pay-per-view next month. Kingston says he's down but says he wants the real Jericho that turned WCW on its head and was the first to win the AEW Championship, not the one who competed in the Mimosa match and got pushed off a cage by MJF.

Jericho vows to be that version of himself and then some and promises Kingston will lose because he's a loser. That's how this very entertaining and compelling segment wraps up.

Matt Hardy Makes Big Match For AEW Revolution

A big match is announced for next month's AEW Revolution pay-per-view in a backstage segment that follows the Kingston/Jericho talk.

We shoot backstage and see Andrade El Idolo, Matt Hardy and Private Party in the stairwell and Hardy challenges Sting, Darby Allin and Sammy Guevara to face himself, Andrade and one of the members of Private Party in a Tornado trios match.

Face of the Revolution Qualifier
Ricky Starks vs. Dark Order No. 10

Now it's time for the latest Face of the Revolution qualifier.

On that note, out comes Ricky Starks accompanied by Powerhouse Hobbs. The FTW Champion settles in the ring.

Out comes his opponent, No. 10 from The Dark Order. After some early back and forth action, we head to a mid match commercial break as the action continues.

When we return we see 10 start to take control of the offense and he eventually gets Starks in his full nelson finisher.

It looked extremely close as Starks was unable to escape and was quickly fading, when he resorted to the tactic of tearing and turning the mask of The Dark Order member to secure the follow-up pinfall.

With the win, Ricky Starks is now in the Face of the Revolution ladder match at next month's PPV.

Winner: Ricky Starks

Adam Cole Needs The Young Bucks & reDRagon To Get Along

We shoot backstage to the Cutler Cam where we see The Young Bucks and reDRagon arguing.

Adam Cole enters the scene and demands that they get along because he needs to focus on his AEW Championship opportunity at AEW Revolution.

TBS Women's Championship
Jade Cargill (C) vs. The Bunny

We head back to the ring where it's time for our next match of the evening.

On that note, out comes The Bunny for her shot at the title. Out next is the champ, as Jade Cargill makes her way out and settles in the squared circle as well.

Following some early dominance from Cargill, this match, which has been virtually one-sided thus far, heads to a mid-match commercial break.

When we return from the break, we see Cargill still in full control of this one when finally the Bunny starts to fight from underneath and actually starts to take over.

She looks to hit her Down the Rabbit Hole finisher, however Cargill avoids it and takes back over. After a ref distraction spot, the brass knuckles are thrown to The Bunny.

Cargill never gets hit with them and ends up hitting her finisher instead to score the pin and retain her title with the victory.

Winner and STILL TBS Women's Champion: Jade Cargill

After The Match: TBS Women's Title Bout Set For AEW Revolution

After the match she is interviewed and says she wants to know who's next. She corrects herself and then asks who's left.

Out comes Tay Conti and she says not only is she next but she's gonna kick her ass. The two brawl and the post-match scene wraps up.

Daniel Garcia vs. Bryan Danielson

After a quick backstage segment with Ricky Starks confronting Keith Lee while interrupting his backstage interview, we hear the commentators run down some new matches for AEW Revolution, this Friday's Rampage and next week's Dynamite.

From there, the theme for Daniel Garcia hits as it's time for our main event of the evening. He settles in the ring and his music dies down.

Now the familiar sounds of Bryan Danielson's music hits and out comes "The American Dragon" for his latest lesson in violence.

The bell sounds and we're off and running with our headline bout of the show here on this week's Dynamite from Bridgeport, CT.

Early on we see Danielson dominating the action, but it isn't long before Garcia is keeping up with him shot for shot and move for move.

We head to a commercial break as the action resumes in what is quickly turning into an excellent main event.

When we return from the break, we see Garcia start to take over and he nearly finishes Danielson off with a submission. Danielson ends up escaping, taking over and ultimately finishing off Garcia for the win in a great final match.

Winner: Bryan Danielson

After The Match: Bryan Danielson vs. Jon Moxley Set For AEW Revolution

We head to the post-match scene. We see Danielson grab the mic and give props to Garcia for his performance in a losing effort.

He asks the crowd if he's got what it takes and then ends up attacked from behind by Team 2point0 until Jon Moxley makes the save.

After Mox beats down Team 2point0, we head back to the microphone where ultimately a match is made that will see Moxley and Danielson go one on one.

The match is set for next month's AEW Revolution pay-per-view. That's how this week's show wraps up. Thanks for joining us!
