AEW DYNAMITE RESULTS (5/25/2022)

This week's show kicks off with the usual Dynamite theme song and cold open video package and then we shoot inside the arena in Las Vegas where Jim Ross welcomes us to the show.

He introduces his partners on commentary for this week's DoN go-home show and then sends it down to Justin Roberts inside the ring.

Steel Cage Match
Shawn Spears vs. Wardlow

"The Dapper Yapper" handles the pre-match ring introductions for this week's opening contest, which will take place inside a steel cage.

From there, we hear the familiar sounds of MJF's theme song. Out comes The Pinnacle leader in a referee shirt, as he will be serving as the special guest referee for this week's opener.

Out next is Shawn Spears. "The Chairman of AEW" makes his way to the cage-covered ring for the highly-anticipated match.

The theme for Wardlow, which is no theme, just the crowd chanting "Wardlow! Wardlow!" plays and out he comes in handcuffs.

Once in the ring, Wardlow is checked by MJF and the bell then sounds with Spears jumping out of the gate with a cheap shot.

MJF also helps Spears the first time Wardlow starts to look to make a comeback. We also see MJF taunt Wardlow several times, including spitting in his face and daring him to do something about it, as Wardlow is still not allowed to make physical contact with MJF if he wants his match with him for his potential freedom at Sunday night's DoN PPV.

Spears finally gets in some offense, including his C4 finisher, after yet another assist from MJF. Still, it's not enough to finish off Wardlow.

Wardlow begins fighting back and ends up in firm, comfortable control of the offense. MJF ends up laid out and then Wardlow takes "The Chairman of AEW" on a power bomb symphony.

With MJF still laid out, Bryce Remsberg comes out to handle the pin fall. He enters the cage and it's as simple as 1-2-3. Wardlow gets the win as fans begin chanting his name again.

A bunch of security runs down to the ring, however, Wardlow lays them out one-by-one and leaves the cage by climbing up and over-the-top to wrap up this week's opener. MJF is shown watching on in disbelief as he finally comes-to on the entrance ramp.

Winner: Wardlow

AEW Commentators With A Message Of Support For Texas Tragedy Victims

The commentators are shown on-camera and they give a brief message in suppot of those dealing with the tragedies in Texas.

J.A.S. & Wizard Leader Chris Jericho With Fireball Attack

We head to a commercial break from there. When we return, we see the Chris Jericho-led Jericho Appreciation Society roaming backstage when they come across a staff member that admits to being a fan of Jon Moxley.

This, of course, leads to J.A.S. watching on as their Wizard leader Chris Jericho throws a fireball in his face. The staff member is laid out and writhing in pain as Jericho brags about his Wizard status to end the quick backstage segment.

CM Punk, "Hangman" Page Go Face-To-Face Ahead Of AEW DoN Title Showdown

We return inside the arena in Las Vegas where we hear the familiar sounds of CM Punk's theme song. "The Best in the World" makes his way down and settles inside the ring as his music dies down.

Now the theme for the reigning AEW World Champion plays. "Hangman" Adam Page heads to the squared circle and he too settles inside as his music fades down.

Tony Schiavone is in the third man in the ring and begins this face-to-face segment for the final in-ring meeting between champion and challenger ahead of the AEW Double Or Nothing 2022 pay-per-view main event this Sunday night.

Schiavone mentions their upcoming battle for the richest prize in the company at the third annual AEW DoN PPV this weekend and then he turns the mic over to "The Best in the World."

CM Punk begins by talking about how Page seems to be taking things so personal ahead of their title clash. He puts over Page as the top dog in the company and as the champion, points out that he's just ready for his shot. He says this isn't personal and he doesn't know why Page is taking it that way.

Page gets on the mic and goes on to talk about how this is personal for him. He says he has vowed to embarass Punk for a long time. He says he didn't mean at DoN, but instead tonight. He says for months he has envisioned lighting a pipe bomb and rolling it to Punk's feet to have it blow up in his face. He tells Punk he tries to talk about worker's rights and then says he doesn't have the right to represent that. He then says his problem is when the lights go off and the red light on the camera goes off.

He finishes up and then hands the mic in Punk's direction. Punk looks at Schiavone, who takes the mic from Page and then holds it up so that "The Best in the World" can respond.

Punk says he still doesn't get what Page's beef is and why this is personal. He says regardless they will meet on Sunday and he's going to take his title. He says Page talking about being a home-grown AEW guy and respecting this place is because of Punk traveling up and down the road. He demands that Page shakes his hand when he beats him on Sunday.

He then says he demands him to shake it now. He pushes Page and extends his hand. Page punches Punk and drops him. Punk looks up at him and holds his jaw. Page exits the ring. Punk begins smiling as Page heads to the back. That will do it for this final face-to-face segment between these two before their big match at DoN.

Jon Moxley & Eddie Kingston vs. Private Party

A quick vignette airs featuring comments from Jade Cargill and Anna Jay to promote their rematch for the TBS Women's Championship at this Sunday night's AEW Double or Nothing pay-per-view.

When we return, we see William Regal joining the crew on special guest commentary. He introduces himself to Jim Ross and the "guy under the mask" Excalibur.

After some brief back-and-forth banter, the camera pans over to the entrance stage where Chris Jericho's "Judas in my Mind" theme hits.

The wizard himself emerges with other members of the J.A.S. Pyro explodes and fans begin singing along with his theme as always, however he cuts them off pretty fast and tells them "that's enough, that's enough."

He and the J.A.S. continue to head to the commentary section for special guest commentary, which is a busy table with Regal and the entire J.A.S. crew.

From there, the familiar sounds of "Wild Thing" plays as Jon Moxley makes his custom entrance through the crowd along with his longtime friend, Eddie Kingston.

Now the theme plays to bring out Isiah Kassidy and Marq Quen -- collectively known as Private Party. Kingston meets one of them in the aisle and immediately takes him down and starts pummeling him, while Mox dukes it out with his the other at ringside.

In the ring, things remain much of the same, with Mox and Kingston dominating things and having their way with ease against Marq Quen. Isiah Kassidy tags in, but also finds himself on the wrong end of a one-way beatdown.

Mox tags in and hoists him up for a huge suplex that sees him simply let go of the Private Party member in mid-air. As he tumbles down to the mat in a free-fall and we hear Regal and Jericho bickering on commentary, Excalibur talks us into a mid-match commercial break as the action continues in this tag-team contest.

We return from the break to see Mox and "The Mad King" still dominating the action. It isn't long after that they wrap this one up and score the easy pinfall victory for the tag-team win against Private Party.

Winners: Jon Moxley & Eddie Kingston

After The Match: All Hell Breaks Loose

Once the match wraps up, we see Mox and Kingston staring down Chris Jericho and the J.A.S. at the commentary section.

The Wizard-led crew throw down their headsets and head to the ring for what turns out to be a wild brawl against the duo. They beat them down as the post-match segment wraps up.

ROH Tag-Team Championships
FTR (C) vs. Roppongi Vice

Caprice Coleman joins the gang on commentary for our next match of the evening as the Ring Of Honnor ring announcer enters the ring to introduce the participants involved in our next match of the evening, as we approach hour number two here on AEW Dynamite.

A vignette airs to highlight the upcoming showdown that will see Dax Harwood and Cash Wheeler put their ROH Tag-Team Championships on-the-line against Roppongi Vice duo Rocky Romero and Trent Baretta.

When we return from the break, we see Coleman finally settling in alongside Jim Ross, Tony Schiavone and Excalibur to call this title contest, as Roppongi Vice make their way to the ring.

Out next are the defending title-holders heading into this match, as Harwood and Wheeler make their way down to the squared circle for this anticipated showdown.

The bell sounds and we're off-and-running with this one after a code of honor handshake. After some solid back-and-forth early offense from these two teams, we see a big half-and-half suplex just as the commentators talk us into a mid-match commercial break.

When we return from the break, we see Wheeler stuck in the ring and trying to reach for a tag to Harwood, only to be stopped once again. Soon thereafter, he does make the tag.

Harwood hits the ring with a ton of energy and is taking out any-and-everything that moves. Finally, some crafty teamwork from Roppongi Vice sees them back in the offensive driver's seat. They beat down Harwood and keep Wheeler from playing a factor.

After some very close near falls from Trent and Rocky, we see Harwood start to fire up and shift the offensive momentum back in favor of the champs. The crowd tries rallying behind him, but Vice cuts him off. They hit a Strong Zero spot off the top, but only get two when Wheeler hits the ring to break up the attempt.

From there, we head into a no contest outcome, as a big run-in spot takes place.

Winners: No Contest

United Empire Duo Jeff Cobb & Great-O-Khan Attack!

Out of nowhere, Jeff Cobb and Great-O-Khan hit the ring for a shocking run-in, and the two New Japan Pro Wrestling stars and United Empire duo continue the trend of "The Forbidden Door" playing a factor on AEW programming.

They beat down both teams, including putting Trent Baretta through a table on the floor with an Iron Claw spot. The crowd gave Cobb and Khan a superstar reaction throughout the run-in and beatdown segment. They take the ROH tag-team titles that are still owned by FTR and hold them up high in the air.

The Hardy Brothers Address "Stepping-Stone" Young Bucks

We shoot to a backstage segment after the ROH tag-team title tilt, where The Hardy Brothers are shown. They address The Young Bucks ahead of their highly-scheduled dream match showdown at AEW Double Or Nothing.

Matt and Jeff Hardy talk about being the G.O.A.T. of tag-team wrestling. They call The Young Bucks stepping stones en route to their ultimate goal -- capturing the AEW Tag-Team Championships.

The two talk about being better than The Young Bucks at every stage of their careers and inform them that the saying is true, never meet your heroes because they will let you down. They say they will not only let them down but beat them down this Sunday night.

Ricky Starks vs. Shane "Swerve" Strickland vs. Jungle Boy

Once The Hardy Brothers wrap up their backstage promo segment, we head back inside the arena where the theme for Ricky Starks plays. The FTW Champion makes his way out and settles inside the ring.

Out next is the next competitor in this advertised triple-threat match. With that said, Shane "Swerve" Strickland's theme hits and he heads to the squared circle.

Finally, the theme for Jungle Boy sounds and out comes one-half of the AEW Tag-Team Champions of Jurassic Express. He is accompanied by Luchasaurus and Christian Cage coming out.

The bell sounds and immediately we see Starks head to the floor. This leaves Jungle Boy and Strickland alone in the ring. They show each other some respect and get ready to get this one started, only for Starks to roll in from behind and try and steal the win with a roll-up pin attempt.

No dice on the attempt made by the FTW Champion. Instead, the action gets going with fast-paced offense, as Jungle Boy starts hitting some wild high spots all over the place. As he focuses on Strickland, we see Starks yank him out to the floor from behind.

Starks runs Jungle Boy into the ring apron and then finds himself watching Strickland charging at him from the ring. Strickland thinks he's pulling a fast one on him, but Starks ends up avoiding the onslaught and sending "Swerve" into the floor. We head to a mid-match commercial break as the action continues in this triple-threat match.

We return from the break to see all three guys still going at it. Jungle Boy and Strickland head to the top-rope, but Starks follows up after them. Both guys end up shoving Starks all the way to the floor outside the ring.

Jungle Boy goes for a backwards hurricanrana, but somehow "Swerve" lands on his feet. Even the Jurassic Express member is shocked by that sight. They start going at it again but then Starks comes in from behind and takes over.

As Starks finds himself in control of the offense, we see things go off the rails for him as Jungle Boy ends up getting a double Snare Trap on both guys. He isn't able to finish it there. Instead, Strickland comes off the top with a double stomp and scores the pinfall victory.

Winner: Shane "Swerve" Strickland

After The Match: Keith Lee & Shane Strickland Stand Tall

Once the match wraps up, we see a ton of run-ins, one-by-one, which includes Powerhouse Hobbs, Luchasaurus and Keith Lee. Lee ends up dumping bodies out to the floor and then launching himself from the ring to the floor to take them out.

Dan Lambert Tells Scorpio Sky New TNT Title Belt Is In The Works

We shoot backstage where Dan Lambert and The Men of the Year are shown standing by. Lambert talks about how American Top Team has won every title in the MMA business and because of that, he's got every championship belt-maker on speed dial.

He then tells Scorpio Sky that he's having his new TNT Championship belt made and it'll be ready faster than the next photo that Sammy Guevara and Tay Conti tweets out.

Thunder Rosa, Without Facepaint, Has A Message For Serena Deeb

We then see Tony Schiavone standing at the top of the entrance ramp. He introduces his guest, AEW Women's Champion Thunder Rosa.

Rosa comes out with a red cowboy hat on, but not her trademark face paint. She talks about how this Sunday she will have her "war paint" on and then proceeds to deliver a message to her challenger for this Sunday night's DoN PPV, Serena Deeb. She vows victory when the two meet this weekend with the title on-the-line.

Red Velvet, Ruby Soho Talk Owen Hart Foundation Women's Tournament

We return from the break to see Red Velvet with Tony Schiavone. Schiavone brings up that Velvet thought she would be in the next match tonight. With that said, she tells Tony, "no sh*t."

She then mentions the name Ruby Soho, who overhears this while she is walking by. Soho and Velvet talk briefly, with them sharing some notes about Kris Statlander.

Velvet walks off and Soho tells Tony that she doesn't need the notes that Velvet tried to give her as help.

Owen Hart Foundation Women's Tournament Semifinals
Britt Baker vs. Toni Storm

Then we head down to the ring where the familiar sounds of Dr. Britt Baker hits. The former AEW Women's Champion emerges and heads down to the squared circle for our co-main event of the evening.

Once Baker settles inside the ring, her music dies down. Now the theme for her opponent, Toni Storm, plays and she heads to the ring as well.

Both competitors are in the battle ground and the bell sounds to get this semifinal bout in the Owen Hart Foundation Women's Tournament off-and-running.

We hear some loud "D.M.D." chants early on, which shift to dueling chants for her and Storm, as these two exchange some early action. Storm emerges in the offensive lead, with Baker down on the mat stuck in a submission.

Storm gets up and stalks Baker, waiting for her to get up before blasting her with a big shot. She sends Baker to the floor at ringside and then follows her out to deliver some more punishment.

On the floor, Storm follows Baker around the ring, blasting her with vicious European uppercuts whenever she gets within arm's-reach of the former title-holder. Baker ends up shifting things in her favor before rolling Storm back in the ring.

When Baker tries following in behind her, Storm knocks Baker back out to the floor and rolls back out to keep the battle going at ringside. Storm ends up having the tables turned on her again, as Baker hits a big spot that sees Storm rammed face-first into the steel ring steps.

On that note, we see Baker roll into the ring to break the referee's count. She then rolls back out and begins heading over to Storm as Excalibur talks us into a mid-match commercial break as the action in this tourney semifinal continues.

As we settle back in from the break, we see the match has returned back inside the ring. The two head to the top where Baker looks for the Pittsburgh Sunrise. Storm ends up avoiding it and taking back over on offense.

Storm beats down Baker into a seated position in the corner of the ring. She heads to the opposing corner and starts to sprint in her direction, building up a full head of steam before ramming into her with a hip-attack.

We see Baker start to look for an offensive comeback when Jamie Hayter heads to the ring and provides a distraction, which ultimately leads to Baker pulling off the win.

With the victory, Baker advances to the finals of the tourney. She will meet the winner of the Kris Statlander vs. Ruby Soho main event scheduled for this Friday night's edition of AEW Rampage.

Winner and ADVANCING to the Owen Hart Foundation Tournament Finals: Dr. Britt Baker

Owen Hart Foundation Semifinals
Samoa Joe vs. Kyle O'Reilly

The commentary team runs down the rest of the lineup for this Friday's edition of AEW Rampage, as well as the updated lineup for this Sunday's AEW Double Or Nothing 2022 pay-per-view.

From there, they send us to another commercial break. Our main event of the evening -- the last semifinal bout in the men's Owen Hart Foundation Tournament between Samoa Joe and Kyle O'Reilly -- is up next.

We return from the break to the ring entrances of Samoa Joe and Kyle O'Reilly. The bell sounds to get our main event of the evening underway.

Immediately the "Joe is gonna kill you! Joe is gonna kill you!" chants spread throughout the arena in Las Vegas as Joe gets off to a very strong offensive start in this tourney final bout.

We see Joe build up a head of steam and use his body as a cannonball / battering ram, knocking the reDRagon member senseless in the process multiple times.

The commentators put over the punishment that has accumulated to the shoulder area of Joe in the few times he has been getting in some offense. We hear the commentators remind us that Jay Lethal is to thank for the initial damage to Joe's shoulder that O'Reilly is focusing on.

Just before we head to our final commercial break of the evening, we see Kyle O'Reilly finally start to mount an offense, as he catches Joe in an armbar submission on the mat.

As we settle back in from the break, we see O'Reilly blasting Joe with chops to the chest and kicks to the leg. The fans, meanwhile, are in the middle of trying to rally behind the fan-favorite.

O'Reilly starts mixing up the kicks and chops even more, hitting the body of the ROH TV Champion as well as the aforementioned injured shoulder.

Eventually Joe sweeps out the legs from O'Reilly and begins taking back over control of the offense. He blasts O'Reilly in the jaw of the reDRagon member, which has been his target of focus throughout the contest, as Excalibur points out.

Joe looks to take O'Reilly to the top-rope for his Muscle Buster finisher, but instead finds himself back on the mat with O'Reilly locking in a Fujiwara arm bar on him. Joe eventually makes it to the ropes to break the hold, but endured a ton of damage in the process.

O'Reilly finds himself on the defensive upon getting up, as Joe palm-strikes his way forward some more. The crowd gives both guys a standing ovation before the two reenegage again, as they each remain in opposing corners trying to recover and catch their wind.

Joe tries to block the O'Connor-role, and he ends up connecting with a rear-naked choke on O'Reilly. The reDRagon member doesn't tap out, but Joe ends up choking him out anyways.

Winner and ADVANCING to the Owen Hart Foundation Tournament Finals: Samoa Joe

Samoa Joe & Adam Cole Staredown Ends DoN Go-Home Dynamite

Joe picks up the victory and will now move on to face off against Adam Cole. The commentators hype it as their first-ever showdown, and it takes place in the finals of the inaugural Owen Hart Foundation Tournament at this Sunday's third-annual AEW Double Or Nothing 2022 pay-per-view.

The go-home edition of AEW Dynamite wraps up with Adam Cole coming out to his theme song as the fans do the "Boom! Adam Cole - bay-bay!" routine along with him.

Cole and Joe stare each other down from the entrance ramp and ring, respectively, as this week's AEW on TBS program goes off the air.

That will do it for our live AEW Dynamite coverage here at Rajah.com.
