AEW DYNAMITE RESULTS (4/27/2022)
This week's show kicks off with the usual cold open video package and theme song. We then shoot inside the Liacouras Center in Philadelphia, PA. where Jim Ross welcomes us to the show by saying his, "It's Wednesday night, and you know what that means ..." catchphrase.
We see the camera pan the arena and then hear the familiar sounds of "Cult of Personality" by Living Colour as CM Punk makes his way over to join J.R., Excalibur and Tony Schiavone on commentary for our opening contest of the show.
Owen Hart Foundation Tournament Qualifying Match
Dax Harwood vs. Cash Wheeler
With that said, the FTR theme song hits and out together comes the tag-team consisting of Dax Harwood and Cash Wheeler. The fans give them a big pop coming out.
They both settle into the ring for this rare match that will feature tag-team partners competing against each other in one-on-one action.
The two will by vying for a spot in the Owen Hart Foundation Tournament. CM Punk helps set the stage on special guest commentary as Harwood and Wheeler prepare to lock horns inside the squared circle.
We hear the bell sound and it's time to get this show, and our first match of the evening, off-and-running. We see some back-and-forth action, all of which is kept respectful until Harwood accidentally pokes Wheeler in the eye.
Following the accidental eye-poke, things pick up between the two FTR teammates and start to get a little more violent. We head to a commercial break while the action continues after a big dropkick to the floor from Wheeler.
When we return from the break, we see the two exchanging strikes in the middle of the ring. Harwood goes for a piledriver but Wheeler avoids it. Harwood rolls Wheeler up, but only gets two. He tries another roll-up style near fall shortly thereafter, but again only gets a count of two from the referee.
Harwood goes for a slingshot powerbomb, however it is reversed into yet another pin attempt for a count of two. CM Punk is doing a good job on commentary of making fans aware of the fact that this match is a qualifier for the Owen Hart Foundation Tournament, with consistent references to the late wrestling legend.
The crowd in Philadelphia is staying hot with loud chants of "This is awesome!" in spots and "AEW!" in others. Wheeler starts to take over on offense, stringing together multiple spots with no answer back from Harwood. He hits a big piledriver for a close near fall, but Harwood hangs in there.
The fans chant "Fight forever!" as Wheeler heads to the top-rope. Harwood ends up popping up and stopping Wheeler before he can do anything off the top. He does, however, escape between the legs of Harwood and he crotches his FTR teammate on the top.
From there, Wheeler climbs up behind Harwood and goes for a back superplex off the top. Unfortunately for him, Harwood makes the adjustment in mid-air and ends up splashing down on top of Wheeler. He remains on top of him for a pin attempt, however Wheeler kicks out at two.
Seconds later, we see both guys go for a big spot and after they each build up a full head of steam, they both sail through the ring ropes, where they end up crashing-and-burning on the hard floor at ringside. Wheeler clutches his leg in pain.
Back in the ring, we see Harwood grab Wheeler and think about a Sharpshooter in honor of Owen Hart, however he decides against it due to the leg of Wheeler being seemingly injured. Wheeler goes for a roll-up to capitalize on Harwood's hesitation, however Harwood counters and scores the victory out of nowhere by turning the roll-up attempt from Wheeler over for his own pin fall.
Winner and ADVANCING to the Owen Hart Foundation Tournament: Dax Harwood
CM Punk Addresses Title Shot At AEW Double Or Nothing 2022
We are informed after the opening match that CM Punk will, in fact, be the next challenger for the AEW World Championship. He will be challenging "Hangman" Adam Page for the title at the pay-per-view event, which is scheduled to emanate from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada on May 29, 2022.
With that said, "The Best in the World" leaves his spot at the commentary table and hops on the house microphone to address the title shot in front of the live crowd in Philly.
Punk says when he returned to the ring about seven months ago, he had one question to answer for himself, which was, "Can I still do this?" He says he can confidently say, "Yes."
He then talks about how no matter what, Hangman Page will know at AEW Double Or Nothing that he has been in a fight. He vows to keep going until the wheels fall off and exits the ring to head to the back.
Scorpio Sky Vows To Recapture TNT Title In Ladder Match
From there, we head backstage for a message from Scorpio Sky of The Men of the Year. We see Sky standing alongside Dan Lambert behind-the-scenes in the Liacouras Center.
He talks about his former TNT Title reign and vows to recapture the championship when he squares off against current title-holder Sammy Guevara later tonight in their scheduled ladder match.
Blackpool Combat Club vs. The Factory
We head back inside the arena and we hear the familiar sounds of Bryan Danielson's theme song. Out comes "The American Dragon" as William Regal takes his usual spot on special guest commentary.
Danielson settles inside the ring and then Wheeler Yuta makes his way out to an enormous pop from his hometown fans in Philadelphia.
Finally, "Wild Thing" plays and Jon Moxley makes his way out to join his fellow Blackpool Combat Club members in this advertised AEW Trios bout.
Already in the ring are the opponents for the aforementioned trio -- The Factory. Representing The Factory in this one is QT Marshall, Aaron Solow and Nick Comoroto, with Anthony Ogogo at ringside.
As soon as Mox enters the ring and joins Yuta and Danielson, he immediately begins duking it out with members of The Factory. The smoke settles and the dust clears and Mox is left to manhandle Solo by himself, hitting a big release suplex and following up with some devastating shots.
Now he tags in Yuta, who once again gets a huge pop from fans in his hometown of Philadelphia, as he picks up where Mox left off, taking it to The Factory. As the action continues in the ring, we head to a mid-match commercial break.
We return from the break to see QT Marshall in the middle of beating down Yuta. The commentators inform us that it's been a three-on-one attack on Yuta during the commercials, with The Factory isolating the Blackpool Combat Club member and building up a one-sided lead over the hometown hero.
The fans rally behind Yuta and it isn't long before we see him fighting back from underneath. He takes over on offense and then makes the tag to Danielson. "The American Dragon" hits the ring and is taking out any-and-everything that moves, including executing a big tope suicida dive through the ropes to the floor.
Danielson climbs to the top-rope and flies off onto Solo in the ring with a big high spot. Solo, on his knees, eats repeated "Yes!" kicks from Danielson. Danielson then slaps the LeBelle Lock on him and cranks away at it, however interference from The Factory stops him from getting the win there.
Mox hits the ring to even the numbers game up a bit, and he unloads on The Factory members with a vengeance. Danielson takes back over, but ends up on the mat as Solo heads to the top-rope. He pops up and connects with a dropkick on Solo as he was sailing down after leaping off the top-rope.
Comoroto gets tagged in, as does Yuta, and we see the big powerhouse member of The Factory take it to the hometown hero with relative ease. Regal on commentary says this is what they needed, which is to see how Yuta handles being thrown around and rag-dolled by a big powerful competitor like Comoroto.
Yuta handles him well, using technique and experience to counter and lock up Comoroto in various holds both standing and on the mat. After an assist from Mox and Danielson, we see Yuta with the seatbelt pin fall attempt for the three-count, picking up the victory for the Blackpool Combat Club.
Winners: Blackpool Combat Club
Ruby Soho & Toni Storm Exchange Insults With Britt Baker & Jamie Hayter
Once the AEW Trios bout wraps up, we shoot backstage for a segment involving women who have qualified for the Owen Hart Foundation Women's Tournament.
Tony Schiavone is standing by with Britt Baker and Jamie Hayter, as well as Toni Storm in the interview zone. He thanks them for promising not to get physical in this segment.
Baker and Hayter taunt Storm by promising her they won't hurt her so she doesn't have to run away. Storm responds by saying she's not going anywhere.
She ends up bringing in a friend of her own in Ruby Soho. Soho and Storm make some comments which Baker and Hayter respond to with jokes about catering. They walk off and we head to a commercial break.
Ricky Starks & Powerhouse Hobbs Want Tag-Team Title Shot
We shoot backstage where Jurassic Express and Christian Cage are standing by. Jungle Boy is down in the dumps about losing last week. Christian Cage calls it a learning experience and says it won't happen again.
From there, he extends a challenge to any top five team to face off against Jungle Boy and Luchasaurus in a title bout. Ricky Starks and Powerhouse Hobbs show up and say they're ranked in the top three and accept the challenge. They claim to be down anywhere, anytime regardless of the show.
Wardlow vs. Lance Archer
It's time for the battle of the big boys. Wardlow is going one-on-one against "The Murderhawk Monster" Lance Archer.
Out comes Archer, kicking ass and taking names as he heads to the ring. Out next is his opponent, but first, MJF and Shawn Spears are shown in a luxary box office in the arena. MJF gets on the microphone and taunts the crowd a bit.
Now Wardlow makes his way out and is ready for one-on-one action. The big man watches as Archer flies from the ring to take out a bunch of security guards.
The bell finally sounds and we're off-and-running with this one. In the ring, the action continues and we see Wardlow came back with a running hurricanrana and a corner spear. That is followed up with a spinebuster.
Wardlow wanted the Powerbomb Symphony, but Archer avoids it and looks for the EBD Claw. Both guys end up clotheslining each other down at the same time. Soon after, they trade forearm shots and then Archer hits some shots to the back of the head.
He goes for a top-rope moonsault and then a chokeslam, but Wardlow kicks out. He wants his Blackout finisher, however it is avoided by Wardlow, who hits some headbutts and then does a big senton off the top. He finally gets his powerbomb symphony and scores the pin fall victory.
Eddie Kingston, Santana & Ortiz In The Ring With J.A.S.
Now it's time for an in-ring segment, as the Jericho Appreciation Society makes their way out. Chris Jericho talks a bit. The commentators remind us of the no-physicality rule between J.A.S. and Eddie Kingston and company.
Speaking of which, Eddie Kingston comes out along with Santana & Ortiz. Jericho complains about how the J.A.S. has been slighted by Kingston, so he demanded an apology. They responded with middle fingers.
Garcia tries to bait them into attacking him, but they wouldn't react. "I don't care about this sports entertainment crap," says Kingston. He demanded a fight, and he doesn't care if it's 5-on-3.
Jericho says being 5-on-3 is a problem, and Kingston's too dumb to realize it. He says he's putting out a hit on Kingston. Jericho dared Kingston to get himself kicked out of another company.
Kingston said that in his world, putting out a hit means putting someone in the ground. He doesn't think Jericho's that guy. That's how this segment ends.
Hikaru Shida vs. Serena Deeb (Philly Street Fight)
We move along to the ring for our next bout of the evening, which will be contested in the women's division under Philly Street Fight rules.
Coming out to the ring is Serena Deeb. She settles in the ring and then out comes Hikaru Shida, who brings a kendo stick and attacks before the bell. She landed a stiff missile dropkick, knocking Deeb out of the ring.
Shida produced a chair and wanted her step-up knee, but Deeb had it scouted. Deeb countered a running knee with a chair shot. Back in the ring, Deeb hit a kneebreaker onto the chair ahead of the break. Upon return, Deeb was still targeting Shida's injured knee, but Shida reversed another kneebreaker and sent Deeb head-first into the chair.
Deeb threw powder in Shida's face and attacked her blinded opponent with a kendo stick. Shida fought back and wildly swung with the kendo stick, eventually striking Deeb. She found some water and wiped the powder out of her eyes before attacking with a step-up dropkick. Shida laid in more kendo stick shots. She wanted the Katana, but Deeb came back with a chair strike.
Deeb wrapped Shida's knee in the chair, but Shida was able to pop up and meet Deeb at the top rope and land an avalanche Falcon Arrow for two. Shida used the kendo stick in a choke, but Deeb jackknifed out of it for two. Deeb poked Shida's eye and hit the Deeb-tox on a chair for. a near fall.
The Serenity Lock followed. Deeb repeatedly drove Shida's knee onto the chair and locked on a Texas Cloverleaf, forcing her to tap.
Winner: Hikaru Shida
MJF Bringing W. Morrissey In To Challenge Wardlow
We head backstage where Shawn Spears and MJF are shown standing by. MJF is told he doesn't seem too upset considering that he just watched Wardlow beat the man he set him up against in Lance Archer.
MJF mocks the interviewer and then goes on to announce that he always has another plan. He reveals that next week Wardlow will go one-on-one against IMPACT Wrestling star W. Morrissey.
Death Triangle Gains Measure Of Revenge Over The House Of Black
It's time for the advertised word from The House of Black -- Malakai Black, Brody King, Buddy Matthews. They are met by a trio of familiar faces who are returning for the first time in a while -- Death Triangle.
The trio of PAC, Rey Fenix and Penta El Zero Miedo attack The House of Black and clean the ring of the heel trio. They stand tall as the crowd pops to end the segment.
Shane "Swerve" Strickland & Darby Allin Exchange Words
Now we head back to the interview zone where Tony Schiavone is standing by with Shane "Swerve" Strickland and Darby Allin.
The two trade words and hype their scheduled showdown on this week's edition of AEW Rampage on TNT, which goes down this Friday night at 10/9c.
Strickland vs. Allin will be for a spot in the inaugural Owen Hart Foundation Tournament, as their match on this week's AEW Rampage is a qualifying match.
The Young Bucks, reDRagon & Adam Cole vs. Varsity Blondes, Dante Martin, Brock Anderson & Lee Johnson
It's time for a ten-man tag-team match, as The Young Bucks, reDRagon and Adam Cole make their way down to the ring for their scheduled showdown against The Varsity Blondes, Dante Martin, Brock Anderson and Lee Johnson.
The bell sounds and we're off-and-running with this one. The bell sounds and we're off-and-running with this one. After some early back-and-forth action, we head to a mid-match commercial break as the match continues.
When we return from the break, we see the action still in progress. The babyface team starts to finally get in some offense, however it doesn't last for long, as the heel team takes over and ultimately close out the show with a multiple-person BTE trigger for the pin fall victory.
Winners: The Young Bucks, reDRagon & Adam Cole
J.A.S. Attack Eddie Kingston With Fireball
We shoot out to the parking lot after the commentators point out that they are hearing about some comotion going on out there.
The cameras catch up with the action and we see the Jericho Appreciation Society taunting Eddie Kingston, who is on the ground holding his face rolling around after taking a fireball to the grill.
He yells in pain as J.A.S. members taunt him a bit more and walk off. Santana & Ortiz finally arrive and check on Kingston, who is still writhing around the ground in pain holding his face.
After this, we run down the lineup for Friday's Rampage and next week's shows and then we head to another commercial break before our main event of the evening.
TNT Championship (Ladder Match)
Sammy Guevara (C) vs. Scorpio Sky
We return from the break to the ring entrance of Scorpio Sky. He heads to the ring for our advertised TNT title ladder match.
As he settles in the ring his music dies down. Now the theme hits to bring out the champion, and out comes Sammy Guevara.
The bell sounds and we're off-and-running with this one. After some early back-and-forth action, we see the match head out to the floor where they start trading big shots. Sky takes over on offense and starts using nearby tools as weapons, ramming Guevara into the steel barricade.
He then heads up to the top of the entrance ramp and grabs a ladder. He brings it down the ramp but Guevara has recovered by then. He goes for a dropkick but Sky is one-step ahead of him, as he avoids it and then blasts him with it.
Guevara takes over shortly after that and he hits a big German suplex on the floor. He then heads into the ring and begins climbing the ladder looking to retrieve the title. Sky ends up recovering and hitting the ring to stop him.
Sky leaps up onto the ladder in a single jump and is now attempting to wrap this one up as well. He is also stopped and then Guevara takes him out and begins climbing again. Once again we see Sky recover in time to stop him.
This time we see Guevara knock Sky off and then instead of going back up after the title, he stops and looks around before going for an absolutely insane 450-splash attempt off the ladder.
He just barely avoids paralyzing himself as he lands nearly right on his head / neck. We head to a mid-match commercial break right after this as the action continues in our TNT Championship ladder match main event of the evening.
As we settle back in from the break, we see Guevara is on the floor at ringside being checked by doctors as a nervous Tay Conti watches over him. The commentators remind us of the scary landing that Guevara took just before we went to the break.
Meanwhile, back in the ring we see Sky ascending the ladder with intentions of finishing this one off. Guevara somehow recovers and heads to the top-rope. He leaps towards Sky but Sky notices him coming and hits a crazy high-spot off the ladder, catching "The Spanish God" in mid-air.
Guevara is once again laid out and lifeless. Sky exits the ring and grabs another ladder that is covered in barbed wire. He brings it into the ring and hoists Guevara up with intentions of hitting his finisher on the barbed-wire covered ladder.
Instead, Guevara counters and hits a big spot on Sky that sees Sky take the bump on the barbed wire ladder. With Sky laid out, we see Guevara looking to wrap this one up. Dan Lambert hits the ring, so Tay Conti enters and blasts him with a low blow to drop him.
This brings in Paige Van Zant, and the two begin duking it out. Paige beats Conti down into the corner of the ring and leaves her laying. She celebrates a bit too early with Sky, as Conti recovers and nearly kicks her head off. Guevara takes out Sky at the same time.
Guevara and Conti now lock lips for a big makeout session in the ring, which elicits some boos from the mostly pro-Guevara crowd. He exits the ring and with the help of Conti, brings another ladder from under the ring into the squared circle.
He ends up leaping into a flatliner from Scorpio Sky, who recovered while they retrieved the latest ladder. Sky goes to climb the ladder, but Conti jumps on his back to try and stop him.
On the other side of the ladder, we see Guevara try and climb up the ladder with Paige Van Zant jumping on his back. They both keep climbing with their opponent's lady friend on their backs.
The two ladies start duking it out like a game of chicken in a swimming pool until finally both take bumps. Guevara grabs Sky by the mouth and yanks. He ends up knocking Sky off the ladder and now "The Spanish God" is at the top of the ladder by himself. He goes to take down the title, but is stopped by Sky who shoves the ladder over enough to knock Guevara off.
He lands back-first onto a ladder laying long-ways across the ring ropes. Ouch. Sky now goes up to retrieve the title but somehow Guevara recovers in time to stop him before he does. Sky ends up knocking him off the ladder again and now he finally unhooks the title.
We have ourselves a new TNT Champion, folks. What a great ladder match. Excellent main event here on this week's show. The crowd pops pretty big for Scorpio Sky's title win.
As soon as Sky begins his post-match celebration with the title, we see Frankie Kazarian head down to the ring as the commentators remind us that Sky vowed to give Kaz the first shot at the TNT title if he were to win it back from Guevara in tonight's ladder match.
The two shake hands and Sky continues his title celebration as this week's show wraps up. That's how this one goes off the air. Thanks for joining us here at Rajah.com for our live coverage! Follow me on Twitter @MattBoone0709.
