AEW Dynamite live results: World title eliminator semifinals

The show opened with a backstage interview segment. 

Dasha Gonzalez asked MJF what it would mean to him if Wardlow were to win the AEW World title. MJF said that Wardlow is under contract to him and if Wardlow wins, MJF becomes AEW Champion. MJF asked Wardlow to confirm that. Wardlow looked annoyed, but agreed. 

Sammy Guevara entered and MJF did his condescending fake friend bit with Sammy. Sammy told him to cut the sh*t. MJF said Sammy looks like he sells adderall to middle schoolers. 

Sammy said he was going to keep MJF out of the Inner Circle. MJF dared him to step up and do something about it. Guevara took a step forward and MJF begged off.

The announcers previewed the rest of the show.

A Jon Moxley promo video aired. Moxley said there was no room for an excuse-making Eddie Kingston in this AEW. He said AEW is for the best athletes who put in the work. He said he's made the AEW title the richest prize in sports and Kingston should protect his neck. 

**********

Kingston, Butcher, Blade and Bunny came to the ring. They showed a highlight from Dark in an inset and explained that The Bunny had maxed out QT Marshall's credit cards. 

**********

After an ad break, Kingston cut a promo in the ring. He called Moxley a coward for not being there tonight. 

Kingston reminded us that he was never eliminated from the Casino Battle Royale at All Out and that Matt Sydal was the Joker in that match. Sydal entered for the next match. 

Eddie Kingston defeated Matt Sydal

They opened with some chain wrestling. Sydal hit a spin kick and a sliding dropkick in the corner. He tried another kick but Kingston caught it and slammed him. Kingston was in control before a commercial. 

After the break, Sydal made his comeback. Sydal hit a flying headscissors with Kingston seated on the top rope. 

Kingston hit a kitchen sink to cut Sydal off, then used Moxley's bulldog choke to submit Sydal.

Young Bucks/FTR interview

Excalibur and The Young Bucks were in one location, FTR and Tully Blanchard in another. 

Excalibur asked Matt about his ankle injury, diagnosed as a severe sprain and a contusion. Matt said he'll be at Full Gear. 

Dax said he's not afraid of internet backlash and FTR will do what they have to do. 

Matt explained the heelish actions of The Bucks of late. He said sometimes good people do bad things. He said The Bucks have been missing an edge and when FTR started screwing with and manipulating their friends, it lit a spark under them. 

Excalibur asked Nick to dive deeper on that. FTR got agitated and walked out on the interview. 

Nick said that Matt had proposed a stipulation and he wasn't sure how he felt about it. 

Matt said that if they lose at Full Gear, they will never challenge for the AEW Tag titles again. 

As a next step in the story, this was fine.

The Inner Circle Town Hall

Dasha Gonzalez and Tony Schiavone were the moderators. 

Inner Circle entered first. Jake Hager was absent and the announcers explained that he's training for an MMA fight. 

MJF then entered. 

Luchasaurus asked the first question. He asked MJF how he would keep the earnings potential strong for The Inner Circle. MJF showed a chart that demonstrated how the earnings would go up with him in the group. 

Reba and Britt Baker asked the next question. Reba fawned over Jericho. Baker asked Jericho about MJF's poor track record when it comes to friendships. Jericho said he's not a dipsh*t like Cody and he won't let MJF into the true Inner Circle, and if he tries to turn on them, they'll knock his teeth down his throat. 

MJF said that they all got into this business for money and championships, and that together, he and Inner Circle would make a lot of green and win a lot of gold. 

Eric Bischoff entered and asked what MJF could do for The Inner Circle, what The Inner Circle could do for him. 

In phrasing the next part of his question, Bischoff said that he's worked with Jericho and that he's a prima donna. He said MJF has a lot of the same traits and how would they get along without destroying each other. 

Jericho told MJF to answer the question. MJF said Jericho can't be serious and what hasn't MJF done? 

Jericho said MJF hasn't beaten him. 

Jericho said he's going to give MJF a shot to beat him at Full Gear. If MJF wins, he's in. 

Ortiz then grabbed the mic. He said he and Sammy are out on MJF and even if he wins, he'll never be in with them. He said Santana is somewhere in the middle. 

Ortiz then announced himself and Guevara vs. MJF and Wardlow for next week.
