Results by: Chris Gerics of Wrestleview.com
It’s Wednesday Night, you know what that means!
AEW Dynamite kicks off from the KeyBank Center in Buffalo, New York in what is a highly anticipated episode for a variety of reasons including the fate of the AEW World and Trios titles!
We cut to a recap of the MJF return at All Out! We hear the Tony Khan voicemail, strung along with clips of the ladder match. The Devil himself is back indeed!
Tony Khan has an annoucement as a chorus of boos from the crowd. The world title is officially vacated! As well as the trios titles; with the Best Friends vs. Death Triangle for the title tonight! We have a tournament in order to decide the new champion! It includes Danieslon, Page, Jericho, Darby Allin, Moxley and more! All of this is leading up to Grand Slam at Arthur Ashe!
MJF MUSIC HITS!!! He comes out to a huge ovation! This crowd has come completely unglued! HE RUNS OVER AND GIVES TAZZ A HUG!! He’s decked out in a Josh Allen jersey and is having a massive babyface reaction! The crowd is screaming for MJF. Buffalo New York! The Devil is back! He asks whose excited to see MJF? I sure as heck am. Last time we saw him he says he said some offensive stuff, but we can all agree he was “just kidding” and he will never leave this place! He says we know the title is vacated, and that he knows one man who deserves that title, and working smart not hard means with his chip he can do anything any time he wants, and has a load of freakin’ money on the side!
He says though we may think we are in dark times, and there was a wise old Jewish man with another M name, who split the sea, and he isn’t Moses, he’s BETTER THAN HIM, AND BETTER THAN US!
JON MOXLEY’S MUSIC HITS!!! He looks none too pleased while the crowd also goes crazy as he makes his way through the crowd. He gets in the ring with a mic and stares down MJF. He calls MJF full of crap, to which he retorts Jonathan and begins to rip into the Bills and chucks the jersey! He says he doesn’t know if Mox is woozy cause he went to sleep, but maybe he doesn’t care about the people or AEW and sees the belt as a chip in the bidding war of ’24, and take it to a real company with real fans and real wrestlers like the American Roller-Code-Ster Cody Rhodes. He wants to work for jolly old St. Nick, the only Khan that matters because that’s what best for business as Mox slaps the mic out of his hand!
Mox is in no mood and says to leave now or he will make him as he takes his jacket off. MJF is struggling to get his shirt off as Mox just looks at him with pity as he bolts from the ring and heads up the ramp. Mox quips “your music sucks by the way.” Mox is pissed off for a variety of reasons but mainly because he doesn’t have the belt, the only worldly possession that matters; not only to him but to others and it screams passion of everyone and the three letters represent the dream, the heroes, and show the world EXACTLY what wrestling could be. It means being better than being you were the day before; it represents everything Moxley loves about the business. He is beet-red and out of breath. He says he got pinned, and that’s his fault and should be on vacation but he’s gonna take another shot, though the mountain is high with all these guys more gifted, talented, better wrestlers than he’ll ever be, but the Ace always wants the ball, and he wants it! This isn’t just winning time for Jon Moxley, this is time to be a legend! WOW! Moxley walks up the ramp and motions a “3” as he stares back at the crowd.
The commentators run down the card including Page vs. Danielson! Wardlow vs. Tony Nese, as well as Toni Storm vs. Penelope Ford! Up next is the Trios Championship!
AEW Trios Championship – Death Triangle (PAC, Penta El Zero, Rey Fenix) vs. Best Friends (Chuck Taylor, Trent?, Orange Cassidy)
Both teams get great ovations from the Buffalo crowd! The match starts off with Cassidy and PAC which is a nice throwback to their previous encounters. But Penta tags in and flips in. He face washes Orange but Orange counters with a glorious sunglasses removal into the crowd! Goes for the pockets but a counter by Penta into a backbreaker countered by a Hurricanrana! Fenix tags in and it’s frantic already! Death Triangle go for a triple tope but get sent to the outside! Cassidy with an assisted front flip onto Death Triangle!

Danhausen goes to curse PAC and eats a foot! Cassidy throws PAC into the ring and hits a huge crossbody and swinging DDT. Setting up for the punch but it’s countered, but Stundog Millionaire! Chuck in now vs. Lucha Bros. and he takes them out in the corner; but Penta follows up with a lungblower! This is wild! 1….2…kick out!

Tony Schiavone backstage with the J.A.S; Jericho says it was a gigantic win and he’s better than ever. 400 years ago Ponce de Leon couldn’t find the fountain of youth but Corazon de Leon did! He’s drinking it in man! He’s the best wrestler, best sports entertainer, and he’s going to be an 8 time world champion and that it’s HIS locker room and no one is taking it away from him. He hypes up Sammy vs. Darby and Sammy adds his turtle ass is getting beat; and Danny Garcia is gonna be left alone but he believes in him. He asks Sammy about Danny being alone and Sammy just replies how sexy he is. Interesting.

THIS IS WAR!!!!!!! Wardlow out to a big pop! Tony Nese with the jobber entrance, so I don’t expect this to go long. They size each other up, Wardlow with a headbutt and a huge lariat! Straps down! Powerbomb Symphony! Crowd is cheering for another! Hits it! And a third! Foot on the chest and it’s over.
After, he drags Sterling in the ring! Josh Brooks comes out to save him! He grabs a mic and says “Wardlow is the TNT Champion, and it’s time for me to remind everyone in the locker room, the business and the fans that stuck by him since day one that THIS IS WARDLOW’S WORLD!”
Sammy Guevara and Darby Allin hype video. Allin says he doesn’t respect Sammy anymore, and he’s even gonna leave Sting in the back, and asks him to do the same.
THE AMERICAN DRAGON’S MUSIC HITS!
