AEW Dynamite live results: Two title matches

Two title matches headline tonight's AEW Dynamite. 

Cody will make his first defense of the TNT Championship against Jungle Boy. Jungle Boy won a battle royal on last week's Dynamite to earn his shot at the TNT title. 

The AEW World Tag Team Championships will also be on the line tonight. Hangman Page and Kenny Omega will defend against Jimmy Havoc and Kip Sabian. Havoc and Sabian defeated SCU last week to earn the title shot. The winners of this match will defend against Best Friends at Fyter Fest, as Best Friends won a number one contender's match at Double or Nothing. 

Tony Schiavone will host a sit-down interview with FTR this evening. FTR debuted on last week's Dynamite, fending off The Butcher and The Blade before having a staredown with The Young Bucks. 

Chris Jericho will face Colt Cabana tonight. Jericho's pull-apart angle with Mike Tyson closed Dynamite last week. Tyson has not been advertised for tonight's show but it is expected that Jericho will address the angle in a promo. 

Big Swole vs. Nyla Rose has also been announced for the show. This will be Swole's first match since the March 4 edition of Dynamite where she defeated Leva Bates. 

Brian Cage won the right to challenge Jon Moxley for the AEW World Championship in the Casino Ladder Match at Double or Nothing. Cage defeated Lee Johnson on last week's Dynamite and has been advertised for tonight's show against an unnamed opponent. 

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

**********

The show began with a brief Black Lives Matter video. 

Talk without action is cheap. Keep an eye on the companies that follow up their talk over the last few days with donations or other actions to support the Black Lives Matter movement and address social injustice.

**********

A video recap of last week's show aired. Excalibur, Jim Ross and Tony Schiavone spoke about the momentum they have coming off the Mike Tyson angle last week and previewed the card for tonight.

AEW World Tag Team Championship match: Kenny Omega & Hangman Page defeated Jimmy Havoc & Kip Sabian (w/Penelope Ford) to retain the titles

This was a very good opener with great action that suffered badly because it needed an enthusiastic crowd to push it to the next level. 

This was laid out differently than a typical tag match. Omega and Havoc started off ad Havoc immediately cut Omega off after a distraction from Ford. Sabian got a tag and kept working Omega over. 

Page tagged in and Page and Omega got some shine. Sabian took the referee. Ford tried a flying headscissors off the top rope to Page but Page blocked. The referee ejected Ford. But in the confusion, Havoc hit Page and Omega with a wrench. 

Havoc worked over Page. Omega and Sabian made tags. Omega hit Sabian and Havoc with hurricanranas. Omega hit a backstabber on Sabian for a near fall. Omega hit a kotaro krusher on Sabian. Page followed with a standing shooting star for a two count. 

Havoc jumped on the apron with a saw. A saw. Page kicked him to the floor and hit a clothesline on Sabian for a two count. 

Sabian and Havoc used a series of quick tags to lay out Omega. Havoc sent Page into the barricade. Sabian hit a double stomp off the top for a two count. Havoc then hit an implant DDT for a near fall. 

Sabian hit Omega with a poison rana. Omega came back with a snap dragon suplex on Havoc and a v-trigger on Sabian. 

All four guys jumped in as the match broke down. Page and Omega stacked Sabian and Havoc in the corner and hit a series of lariats. 

Page and Omega hit Havoc with the Last Call (Buckshot Lariat/v-trigger combo) and Page pinned Havoc. 

**********

They played a snippet of Tully Blanchard cutting a promo on Shawn Spears to fire him up. The full promo aired on social media this week. 

Blanchard and Spears were then shown in the back of a limo. Blanchard told Spears he has just what he needs to take him to the next level. 

Blanchard opened a small lockbox and handed Spears a single black glove. 

This was not explained further beyond Excalibur saying the glove represented a new identity for Spears. 

**********

Brian Cage defeated Shawn Dean

Cage won a squash with the Drill Claw after hitting a series of suplexes and a buckle bomb. You knew there had to be a buckle bomb on the show this week. 

**********

Taz cut a promo. He said he was irritated because Jon Moxley was giggling and snickering as Taz addressed him last week. 

Taz said Moxley needs to get his head on straight and take Cage seriously because this isn't a joke. 

Taz ended the promo with his catchphrase for Cage. "Beat him if you can, survive if he lets you."

Moxley entered and climbed into the ring. 

Moxley said he was smiling last week because the idea of locking up with Cage and making violence makes him happy. 

Moxley said Cage is different than everyone else in AEW but so is he. Moxley said Cage is a machine and he's only human. Moxley said he can be beaten but it would take Cage all night long. 

Moxley told Cage that he's swimming with a different breed of shark and to remember that the next time he brings him up on TV. 

This was a good segment. They're still laying groundwork for the feud, no need to do a crazy brawl or anything this early. 

********** 

Alex Marvez approached Lance Archer in a junkyard. Archer was beating up a masked man. Just a random assault caught on camera. 

Archer stopped and told Marvez that one loss means nothing to him. He said he's not here to be a spot monkey, he's here because everybody dies. 

Jake Roberts apologized to Marvez. 

**********

In his 2020 Matt Hardy persona, Matt Hardy approached Private Party at the backstage bar. Hardy asked how Marq Quen's knee was feeling. Quen said he's not going to miss any time due to injury. 

Hardy said he enjoyed their match last week and Private Party reminds him of The Hardy Boyz. Hardy said if Private Party needs help with anything, let him know. 

Isiah Kassidy said Private Party and Hardy could be Hardy Party. 

Hardy then bumped into Sammy Guevara. Hardy told Guevara that they were cool. Guevara looked at him quizically. 

**********

A hype video for the TNT title match aired. 

**********

Fyter Fest was announced for July 1 and July 8 at 10 p.m. Eastern on TNT. An AEW employee then sent out a tweet saying that the show will air at 8 p.m. Eastern. 

This comes a day after AEW Dark premiered on YouTube as unlisted.

Your guess is as good as mine. 

**********

Another recap of the Jericho/Tyson angle aired. 

**********

Cabana entered. Jericho then entered with Jake Hager and Sammy Guevara. Guevara sang Judas. 

The camera cut to QT Marshall and Allie canoodling in the crowd in a continuation of the worst angle in the company. 

**********

Chris Jericho defeated Colt Cabana

Cabana dominated the opening moments of the match. He hit an Asai moonsault. 

Cabana climbed the ropes while Jericho and Guevara took the referee. Hager knocked Cabana off the ropes and Jericho took control of the match before an ad break. 

Jericho missed a charge into the corner and crotched himself on the second turnbuckle. Cabana hit a clothesline and flip, flop and fly. 

Cabana hit the flying apple. Cabana hit a splash off the second rope for a two count. 

Jericho hit a back elbow and missed a lionsault. Cabana went for a Superman pin but Jericho reversed it into the Walls of Jericho. Cabana forced a rope break. 

Jericho argued with ref Aubrey Edwards as he said Cabana tapped out. Cabana got two quick near falls off a frankensteiner and a cradle. 

The finish saw Cabana springboard off the second rope right into a Judas Effect. Jericho got the pin. 

**********

Jericho cut a promo. He told the audience to shut their ass and address him with respect. 

Jericho called Tyson "a piece of shit" and said he's going to do to Tyson what he just did to Cabana. 

He said everyone wants to see Jericho vs. Tyson. He said he wants to taste Tyson's blood and shove Tyson's head up his own ass. 

Jericho said he's not waiting for next week, next pay-per-view or next Christmas, he's calling out Tyson, the baddest man on the planet, right now. 

Orange Cassidy entered instead. 

Cassidy tucked Jericho's hands inside Jericho's belt as if they were pockets. 

Hager swung and missed at Cassidy. Jericho missed a strike and Cassidy bailed outside. 

They teased that this issue between Cassidy and Jericho isn't over. 

A Jericho/Cassidy feud will be awesome because it can be built around promos and skits. That's key because the dirty little secret is that Jericho can't go in the ring anymore. 

**********

Another Fyter Fest commercial aired. It listed 10 p.m. as the air time. 

Tony Schiavone narrated a video package of highlights from earlier tonight. 

**********

A Britt Baker hype video aired. Baker was working out in her wheelchair. Rebel, Dr. Sampson and Schiavone cheered her on. Baker wasn't working very hard. 

********** 

Nyla Rose defeated Big Swole

Swole used a couple of side headlocks and an abdominal stretch early on. Rose came back with a hip toss. Swole low-bridged Rose over the top rope. Rose took control of the match on the floor and rammed Swole into the ring frame. 

After an ad break, Rose was stretching Swole. 

Swole made a comeback with a headbutt and an uppercut. Swole hit a springboard cutter for a two count. Swole hit a chop block and a pump kick. 

Rose hit a spear for a near fall. Swole escaped a Beast Bomb and used a victory roll for a two count. 

Swole went for Dirty Dancing. Rose blocked and hit a spinebuster for the pin. 

**********

Schiavone interviewed Swole after the match. She said she centered herself after some time off. Even though she lost, she said it's good to be back. 

Britt Baker began yelling at Swole from her Rolls Royce. Swole went after Baker with a chair but Rebel pulled Baker's Rolls away in time. 

A feud between these two could be a lot of fun. 

**********

Schiavone interviewed Darby Allin. Tony said that Darby is one of the toughest guys ever but he isn't cleared to wrestle after the injury he suffered at the hands of Cage at Double or Nothing. 

Schiavone asked Darby if he thought Taz's attempts to mentor him in the weeks leading up to Double or Nothing had something to do with Cage targeting him. 

Allin said life is one big joke but he'll get the last laugh. 

**********

Schiavone had a sit-down with FTR. 

Dax said FTR stands for a lifestyle. Cash said it can stand for whatever you want it to. Dax said it's for the revolution right now since they've come to AEW and the pinnacle of tag team wrestling. 

Dax put over Private Party. Cash put over Santana and Ortiz and the Lucha Bros. Dax said Omega and Page aren't a real team but they're on their list too. 

Tony asked why they didnt mention the Bucks as potential opponents. 

Dax said he's tired of hearing about the Young Bucks, the tag team of the decade that Dave Meltzer can't stop talking about. 

Cash said it's not a dream match for them. He said he doesn't want to have a match of the year with the Bucks, he wants to punch the Bucks in the mouth and have a fight with them. 

Schiavone wrapped up the interview. He said he always thought FTR stood for "Fuck The Revival" (which was bleeped). 

Butcher and Blade barged into the interview room and had a pull-apart with FTR. FTR challenged them to a match next week. 

On a show that had a ton of video packages and highlight videos, I thought that this should have been longer. I wanted to know more about who these guys are. 

**********

FTR vs. The Butcher & The Blade, Colt Cabana vs. Sammy Guevara, Marq Quen vs. the TNT Champion, Santana & Ortiz & Jake Hager vs. Best Friends & Orange Cassidy were announced for next week's Dynamite. 

Jon Moxley in action was announced for next week's Dark. 

**********

Marvez interviewed Cabana. Cabana said he's proved he belongs in AEW but he didn't get it done tonight. 

Mr. Brodie Lee entered and said that it's not a loss that matters, it's how you rebound from the loss. He said he can help Cabana with that. 

Lee left. Cabana pondered Lee's offer. 

**********

Jungle Boy entered. The main event is next. 

**********

Schiavone said that the winner of the match tonight defends against Rey Fenix next week. 

Is it Quen or Fenix? 

Not a good week for continuity and quality control here in All Elite Wrestling. This was a taped show. 

**********

TNT Championship match: Cody (w/Arn Anderson) defeated Jungle Boy to retain the title

Jungle Boy got the chance to shine early with a step-up rana. Cody cut him off with some strikes and went after Jungle Boy's left leg. 

Cody continued to go after the left leg with a figure four. Jungle Boy forced a rope break. Cody missed a disaster kick. Jungle Boy hit a springboard DDT for a two count. Jungle Boy scored another quick near fall. 

Jungle Boy hit a tope suicida. Cody then tossed Jungle Boy over the barricade to regain control before a commercial break.

Jungle Boy went to the top rope. Cody cut him off with a dropkick and hit a delayed superplex for a two count. Cody teased using his weight belt as a weapon but decided against it. 

Cody and Jungle Boy fought on the top rope, then both took a bump off the post through the timekeeper's table. 

Cody tried a sunset flip. Jungle Boy sat down for a near fall. 

The finish saw Jungle Boy go for a swing DDT. Cody blocked and hit Cross Rhodes for the pin. 

**********

Schaivone said that Cody will defend against Quen next week.
