AEW: Dynamite was heavily promoted going into this week, serving not only as the go-home for AEW: Revolution on Sunday March 7, but also as a special episode dubbed ‘The Crossroads’.
The show opened with the long awaited Cody Rhodes & Red Velvet against Jade Cargill & Shaquille O’Neal match.

Cargill and Velvet worked the majority of the match, and Cargill got the win with the Implant Buster in her debut.
Rey Fenix & PAC quickly squashed John Skyler & D3, before we heard from Chris Jericho and MJF at their press conference.

The five men hugged in ring, as Arn Anderson came out to flash the Horsemen signal at Dillon.
Tony Schiavone introduced Paul Wight who promised a huge signing from a Hall of Fame worthy competitor at Revolution, before we got the Finals of The AEW Women’s World Championship Eliminator Tournament as Ryo Mizunami defeated Nyla Rose.

Tony Schiavone returned to the ring to interview Sting who said Brian Cage's huge powerbomb the other week awoke something in him, before Team Taz ran out for a fight. Darby Allin made the save.
We had the final Face of the Revolution Ladder Match qualifier as The Acclaimed’s Max Caster defeated Dark Order’s 10 after a sneak attack by Jack Evans on behalf of Matt Hardy. Miro cut a short promo backstage saying that everyone who has been waiting for him to stop playing games will finally get their wish at Revolution when he and Kip Sabian take on Orange Cassidy and Chuck Taylor.
Tonight's main event saw Hangman Page & John Silver defeat Marq Quen & Matt Hardy. Post-match Hardy viciously attacked Page, as Dark Order made the save. Shortly after, all the participants in the Tag Team Royal at Revolution ran down for a huge brawl to close the show.
