This week’s episode of Dynamite was taped last night on Chris Jericho’s Rock ‘N’ Wrestling Rager At Sea Part Deux: Second Wave while the boat was docked in The Bahamas. The show will air tonight as usual as Dave Meltzer revealed on Wrestling Observer Live that AEW is using two separate airplanes to fly master tapes to Atlanta, Georgia. This means that even if something goes wrong with one of the planes, the episode will still be broadcast at the usual time on TNT and FITE TV.
Dave Meltzer and Bryan Alvarez of Wrestling Observer Online attended the Dynamite taping and published the results last night.
Hangman Adam Page & Kenny Omega Defeated SCU (Frankie Kazarian & Scorpio Sky) – AEW World Tag Team Championships
The show kicked off with the AEW World Tag Team title match as SCU defended their Championships for the fourth time. On Wrestling Observer Radio, Meltzer explained Page hit Omega with the Buckshot Lariat as he has done in previous weeks. The duo were able to overcome this mishap, however, as Page took out both Sky and Kazarian with Buckshot Lariats and pinned Frankie for the victory.
With that, a title changed hands for the first time in AEW history.
After the match, The Young Bucks came out to congratulate Omega and Page. After reluctantly hugging them, Hangman invited The Bucks to celebrate with Kenny and he left the ring to drink beer with the crowd. The Jackson Brothers and The Cleaner then invited Page to come back into the ring and celebrate with them, but he instead just gave them a salute and made his way to the back.
Britt Baker Defeated Priscilla Kelly
Baker forced Kelly to tap out to the Lockjaw after a short match. During an interview after the bout, the Dentist railed on Tony Schiavone, accusing him of being a terrible barista when he worked at Starbucks and she told him he needed some dental work. According to Meltzer, the crowd booed Baker throughout the segment. This ultimately cements her heel turn which has been foreshadowed in recent weeks.
The Inner Circle (Chris Jericho, Santana & Ortiz) Defeated Jurassic Express (Luchasaurus, Marko Stunt & Jungle Boy)
The match quickly became a Handicap match as Jake Hager and Luchasaurus brawled backstage, teasing a future match between the two heavyweights. Le Champion and Stunt fought each other in the final stages of the match, with Mr. Fun Size gaining multiple near falls. Jericho ultimately won the contest for his team after hitting Stunt with the Judas Effect.
MJF Defeated Joey Janela
MJF won the match after The Bad Boy was distracted by Superbad Kip Sabian and Penelope Ford. Friedman then basked in his victory and claimed his match with Cody would only be a short chapter in his long career. The American Nightmare then made his way to the ring and MJF reminded his rival that he couldn’t touch him or their match at Revolution would be off. Cody confirmed he couldn’t touch him, but these guys can.
The Salt Of The Earth then received a Double Superkick to the face from The Young Bucks. As he reeled from the shock attack, Nick and Matt Jackson grabbed MJF and flung him into the pool.
Jon Moxley Defeated PAC – Number One Contender’s match for the AEW World Championship
Moxley was still wearing the bandage to protect his eye after The Inner Circle attacked him on last week’s episode. Meltzer and Alvarez explained the match was odd as the crowd was distracted by another boat docking during the match. Those in attendance reportedly started to chant “f**k your ship,” which led to PAC pointing at himself and Moxley, seemingly to remind the crowd why they were there.
After a back and forth contest, Moxley hit PAC with the Paradigm Shift for the victory. Jericho then came out to the ramp and held up the AEW World Championship to end the show.
