AEW Dynamite live results: Mystery partner match, Blood & Guts rules

AEW Dynamite airs live tonight from the Maverik Center in West Valley City, Utah. 

With Kenny Omega not cleared for in-ring action after suffering a hand injury at Revolution, the announced main event will see co-holder of the AEW World Tag Team titles, Hangman Page, and a mystery partner face the Inner Circle team of Chris Jericho and Sammy Guevara. 

Last week's show saw the new Death Triangle group formed, consisting of PAC, Pentagon Jr. and Rey Fenix. They will face Joey Janela and Private Party this evening in a trios match. 

Jurassic Express vs. MJF, The Butcher and the Blade in a six-man tag has also been announced for tonight's show.

The rules for the inaugural Blood & Guts match are set to be revealed tonight. That match will be held on March 25 in Newark, New Jersey, and will see The Inner Circle (Jericho, Guevara, Jake Hager, Santana and Ortiz) face The Elite (Omega, Page, The Young Bucks and Cody Rhodes).

Our live coverage begins at 8 p.m. Eastern time. 


The show opened with a video recap of last week's show. 

In a segment taped earlier in the day, Tony Schiavone interviewed Hangman Page, asking who his partner would be tonight. Page asked The Young Bucks to join him. Page said he wouldn't team with Matt if he were the last man on earth. He said he would consider teaming with his younger, more talented brother. 

Page then said that his partner tonight is a mystery, and walked off. Matt asked Nick to tell him that he wasn't considering teaming with Hangman. Nick walked off without answering. 


Cody defeated Ortiz

This was a fine little opener, but the in-ring action was secondary to advancing multiple storylines. 

After some misdirection spots, Cody hit a powerslam out of the corner for a one count. 

Jake Roberts and Lance Archer walked through the crowd, then took ringside seats to watch the action. Archer is the client that Roberts made reference to last week. 

Cody and Ortiz brawled around ringside. Back in the ring, Ortiz took the referee, allowing Santana to trip Cody. Ortiz continued working on Cody's legs, then did some dancing. 

Cody fired up and hit a forearm shot, an x-plex, then ten punches in the corner. Santana took the ref again. Brandi Rhodes hit Santana with her belt. Ortiz hit a superplex for a near fall. 

Cody hit a tope suicida to Santana. Ortiz tried a tope to Cody, but he got caught and dropped face-first on the ramp. Archer teased jumping the rail, but walked out instead. 

Ortiz blocked a Disaster Kick, then blocked a Cross Rhodes. Cody hit a dragon screw in the ropes, then used a figure four. Ortiz submitted. 

After the bell, Santana jumped in and hit Cody with the mad ball. Matt Jackson and Kenny Omega ran in to make the save. 

Jericho appeared on the screen with Sammy Guevara and Jake Hager. Jericho said Cody might have the upper hand tonight, but in two weeks, Jericho will beat all the "pumpkin-headed dipshits" in The Elite. 

Jericho said if they were wondering where Nick was, they should know that he ran into him in the back. The camera pulled back to reveal a fallen, bloody Nick. 

Cody, Matt, Omega, Dustin Rhodes and EMTs tended to Nick during the first ad break. 


Nyla Rose & Bea Priestley defeated Hikaru Shida & Kris Statlander

They really make the referees look incompetent every week, don't they? Here, Rick Knox rang the bell with all four competitors in the ring. Priestley and Rose attacked at the bell. Knox was aghast. Don't ring the bell with a full ring, dude. 

Shida hit Rose with a shoulder tackle, then was immediately cut off. Rose hit a legdrop for a two count. Priestley and Rose traded quick tags and continued working on Shida. 

During a commercial break, Shida managed to tag Statlander. Priestley cut Statlander off and used an octopus hold. 

Back from commercials, Priestley tried a double springboard kick out of the corner, but botched it. Statlander hit a backbreaker. Shida and Statlander hit some tandem offense. 

Priestley hit Shida with a release German. Shida countered with a shining wizard. Rose tagged in. She missed a top rope guillotine knee. Shida hit an enziguri, then used a falcon arrow for a two count, with Priestley saving for Rose. 

Rose and Priestley teased a doomsday device. Shida blocked it, then hit a superplex to Priestley. Rose popped up, hit a spear, then used a Beast Bomb for the pin. 

After the bell, Priestley laid out Rose with a belt shot, so that could be a program going forward. 

This match got better as it went along. All four of these women have a ton of raw talent, but it needs to be refined. 


A Chris Daniels video package played. This was a parody of the Dark Order promos that have been airing for months. 

Daniels said the Dark Order sucks, he's not The Exalted One, Grayson and Uno don't have any answers, and there is no Exalted One. 

Daniels challenged Grayson and Uno to singles matches. He said once he beats them and there is no Exalted One, he'll prove that Dark Order sucks. 


MJF, The Butcher & The Blade defeated Jurassic Express

This was hardly a five-star classic, but it was a super fun match. 

MJF took off his ring jacket to reveal an "I Pinned Cody" shirt. 

They did some early comedy with MJF and Luchasaurus. MJF begged off, then Butcher and Blade attacked. I don't think Luchasaurus even got one offensive move in before he was cut off. MJF, Butcher and Blade worked over his legs. 

After a commercial break, Luchasaurus managed a tag to Jungle Boy, who ran wild after an awesome hot tag. Stunt jumped in and hit a tornado DDT to Butcher. Jungle Boy hit a tope suicida to all three heels. Luchasaurus then hit a step-up tope. 

Luchasaurus hit a double chokeslam to Blade and MJF, then hit a standing moonsault for a near fall. Butcher and Luchasaurus traded strikes. 

Stunt and MJF ended up the legal men. Wardlow took out Luchasaurus on the floor. The Bunny jumped on the apron and distracted Jungle Boy, allowing Blade to shove him off the top rope to the floor. MJF then used the Salt of the Earth to tap out Stunt. 


A Darby Allin video played. He dragged a Sammy Guevara dummy in a body bag behind a pickup truck. 


Tony Schiavone interviewed Britt Baker. 

She heeled on the Utah crowd. She brought Tony his coffee. 

She said the crowd all looked related to each other, they had high BMIs, poor oral health, and that Utah was boring because caffeine and alcohol are frowned upon. 

She said she was there to serve as a role model. She said everyone should follow their dreams of being janitors, construction workers or dental assistants. 

Big Swole interrupted. Baker hid behind Tony. Swole said all Baker does is talk. Bake said the only wrestler in Swole's household that people care about is her boyfriend. Swole pointed out her wedding ring and said she's married, bay bay. 

Baker then threw coffee on Swole and ran off. 


PAC, Pentagon Jr. & Rey Fenix defeated Joey Janela & Private Party

PAC and Kassidy began in the ring with a nicce sequence of drop downs and leapfrogs. Kassidy hit Silly String. Penta and Janela tagged in. Penta went after Janela's legs with kicks.. Janela hit a tope. Kassidy got cut off during a picture-in-picture ad break. 

Janela got a hot tag after the break. He hit a tope suicida. Private Party hit Gin 'n' Juice on Fenix. Kassidy hit a swanton bomb. Quen hit a shooting star press. Pentagon broke up a pinfall attempt. 

Death Triangle went 3-on-1 against Quen. Fenix hit a rope-walk springboard double stomp for a near fall. Quen hit a tope to the floor. Kassidy used PAC as a springboard to hit a dive to Pentagon. Janela hit a death valley driver on PAC on the apron. 

Janela hit a top rope elbow on PAC for a two count. Penta and Fenix cut Janela off. Fenix hit a springboard cutter. Fenix and Penta hit their tandem double stomp/package driver. Fenix hit a tope to Private Party. PAC then hit Janela with Black Arrow and pinned him. 

Death Triangle locked in a triple submission on Private Party and Janela after the match. Best Friends and Orange Cassidy entered for the save. 

This was an awesome match, just all action. 


Lexie was with Dustin Rhodes backstage. Dustin said that whether Hangman likes it or not, Dustin is going to be his partner tonight because he's tired of Inner Circle. He said they're going to do some cowboy shit. 


Lucha Bros & PAC vs. Orange Cassidy & Best Friends, The Exalted One reveal, and a six-man tag for the Blood & Guts advantage were announced for next week. 


Blood & Guts rules were revealed: 

  • 2 men enter the cage for a 5 minute round
  • Every 2 minutes another participant enters
  • Match officially begins after all 10 participants have entered the cage
  • Winning team is determined by making any opponent submit or surrender. No pinfalls. 


Jim Ross conducted an interview with Jon Moxley. 

Ross asked about Moxley's injuries at the hands of Inner Circle last week. Moxley said he's not feeling good and he's pissed off, but he's not going to elaborate. 

Ross said that Moxley and Hager are on a collision course. Moxley said he's never been hit harder than he was by Hager, but Hager is just another guy. 

Ross asked what's up for Moxley at Blood & Guts. Moxley said he'll be there. He said he's in Inner Cricle's blind spot, which should scare them if they're as smart as they think. 

This was a good idea, but it was awkwardly edited for time and not as effective as it could have been. 


Hangman Page & Dustin Rhodes defeated Chris Jericho & Sammy Guevara

Jericho teased starting out with Page, but tagged out right away. Jericho and Page did some comedy with a fan's beer on the floor. Page punched Jericho, who spit beer in the air. Page drank the beer. 

Page tagged Rhodes, who hit some of his trademark spots. Guevara cut Rhodes off with a one-legged missile dropkick. Guevara and Jericho worked over Rhodes through a commercial break. 

Jericho tried a Lionsault, but Rhodes got his knees up. Page and Guevara got tags. Page hit a running boot to Guevara, a springboard lariat to Jericho, then a fall-away slam to Guevara, then a dive to Jericho. 

Rhodes hit a diving crossbody to Jericho and Guevara in the ring, while Page hit a moonsault off the post to the Inner Circle on the floor. 

Page tried the Buckshot. Jericho blocked and went for the Walls. Page fought out. Guevara tagged in and missed a shooting star. Page took out Jericho on the floor with a rebound lariat. 

Inside, Rhodes hit a destroyer to Guevara. Page followed with a Buckshot Lariat for the pin. 

Inner Circle jumped in and beat down Page and Rhodes after the match. Omega ran in to make the save, but got hit by a Judas Effect. 

Cody ran in and ran wild at first, but Hager cut him off with a belly-to-belly. Ortiz hit a suplex on Cody on the ramp. Jericho attacked Cody with a chair. 

Inner Circle dragged Page to the top of the ramp and teased a powerbomb off the stage. Matt Jackson ran in and made the save. Matt and Page stared each other down. Matt flipped off Page. 

Jericho hit Page and Matt with a chair, and Inner Circle stood tall to end the show. 


There was one excellent match on this show, and some good storyline advancement. Thumbs up.
