AEW Dynamite Results
June 17, 2020
Hangman Page (c) & Kenny Omega (c) def. The Natural Nightmares (Dustin Rhodes & QT Marshall) with a Shotgun Lariat/V-Trigger combo to retain the AEW World Tag Team Championships.
Abadon def. Anna Jay. Total squash match.
The Dark Order came to the ring led by Brodie Lee. They offered Colt Cabana an envelope with some paperwork in it, and he looked through it, clearly conflicted. The Dark Order minions helped Anna Jay out of the ring and to the back.
MJF def. Billy Gunn. MJF and Wardlow brawled with Jurassic Express after the match leading to a huge pull-apart involving the entire AEW DARK roster and several roster stars.
Tony Schiavone announced Hikaru Shida vs. Penelope Ford for the AEW Women’s World Championship at Fyter Fest. Britt Baker threw a tantrum from the back of her golf cart and told Tony he was on a “friend break”. She told her driver to get them out of the arena, but Big Swol hijacked the cart and sped off into the night.
Cody Rhodes with Arn Anderson cut a promo saying that it’s starting to get lonely at the top. He wondered if he was still a part of The Elite, since they didn’t help him last week against the Inner Circle, and asked if the Nightmare Family was even a family anymore.
Cody Rhodes (c) def. “Stroke Daddy” Ricky Starks to retain the TNT Championship. Starks is someone a lot of people have had their eye on lately, coming off a hot run on the NWA Powerrr series where he got to show off his character and even won the NWA World Television championship. A great back and forth match, and a great showcase for Starks.
The Young Bucks def. Superbad Squad (Jimmy Havoc & Kip Sabian). So much outside interference in this one, with The Butcher & The Blade at ringside, as well as FTR. The Bucks actually used a modified Kamigoye to win.
The Butcher & The Blade attacked after the match, but FTR made the save and hit them with the Goodnight Express. The Bucks hit Butcher with an Indytaker while FTR hit the spike piledriver on Blade.
Brian Cage and Taz talked about the upcoming AEW World Championship match at Fyter Fest. Cage said he didn’t know what he was looking forward to the most – drilling Moxley’s skull into the ground, or taking his world title.
Jon Moxley responded in his own video, and said he was a person with a lot of very bad demons inside. He mocks the “beat him if you can, survive if he lets you” catchphrase, and tells Cage he’s going to take him out to deep waters and leave him for dead.
“Reba” finds Dr. Britt Baker outside the arena in a dumpster. Baker claims she’s been waiting for 5 hours and fires Rebel, then says she’s hired back because she remembers that Tony is on “friend timeout”. She promises to get her revenge on Big Swol if it’s the last thing she ever does.
Best Friends (Chuck Taylor & Trent) def. Le Sex Gods (Chris Jericho & Sammy Guevara) to retain their #1 contender’s shot for the AEW World Tag Team Championships. Matt Hardy was on commentary for this one, as he’ll be wrestling Sammy G. next week. Sammy nearly got the win with a Shooting Star Press, but a cameraman tripped him up and Trent gave him the Dudebuster to win.
Chris Jericho freaked out about his loss, until the cameraman responsible revealed himself as Orange Cassidy. No hands in his pocket this week, as Cassidy went right after Jericho and took him to the mat with a flurry of wild blows. He knocks Jericho out of the ring with a Superman Punch, and celebrates with Best Friends to close out the show.
