Dynamite Results

*Live from Seattle, WA.

(1)  Ricky Starks def. Chris Jericho…Starks is stuck in the Walls of Jericho but getting close to a ropebreak…Angelo Parker enters the ring from the opposite side to get the ref’s attention, allowing Matt Menard to blast Starks with Floyd…Starks’ hand drops twice but not a 3rd time…Starks rolls over & powers out of the submission…Starks knocks Parker & Menard off the apron, ducks a Jericho clothesline, & counters with the Spear for the win (13:40)

*AFTER…the rest of the Jericho Appreciation Society floods the ring & puts the boots to Starks…Action Andretti down for the save & is handling all the male members of the JAS with a chair…but when Anna Jay grabs the chair & Tay Melo delivers a low blow uppercut, Andretti’s night turns for the worse…Andretti is pummeled & rolled out…Starks is fed to Jake Hager who powerbombs him from the apron’s edge, through a table, to the floor.

*Hangman Adam Page to the ring with Schiavone…he’s not currently medically cleared but he’s headed home to get a brain scan & plans to be in LA, where he promises Moxley, “I will knock your dick in the dirt”…out comes Jon Moxley & after some microphone issues, Mox says he’s tired of all the sympathy for Hangman…Hangman’s not mad Mox knocked him out, he’s pissed that he joked about it…the receipt is coming in LA…Mox says there’s no reason to believe their next encounter won’t end exactly the same way.

(2)  The Acclaimed def. Jay Lethal & Jeff Jarrett…retain their AEW Tag Team Championship…around the 3 minute mark Lethal antagonizes Billy Gunn, drawing him into the ring & getting him sent back to the locker room…Caster gets knocked to the floor where Satnam Singh runs him into the ring steps & the ref sends Singh packing, with an escort from a half dozen backup refs…Bowens avoids the Lethal Injection with a forearm smash to the back of Lethal’s head…but Jarrett grabs Bowens & hits the Stroke…Lethal hooks a leg…the ref counts 1, 2…Bowens puts his foot on the rope but Sonjay Dutt knocks it off & the ref counts 3 for the WIN (12:09)…BUT…Aubrey Edwards (not the ref in this match) confers with the ref & the match is re-started…Lethal grabs a Schoolboy on Bowens & adjusts to put his feet on the ropes for leverage…Caster knocks Lethal off the ropes, allowing Bowens to roll it over into a Roll Up of his own for the win (12:34).

*Jamie Hayter & Britt Baker sit down with Schiavone…Britt says Saraya doesn’t “get it” when it comes to AEW…no matter who she chooses to be her partner in LA, she’s not going to beat “the Killer & the Pillar.”

*Jungle Boy backstage promo…he challenges Big Bill & Lee Moriarty to face him next week in his home town of LA with his partner…for 1 night only…Hook.

(3)  Bryan Danielson def. Tony Nese…Danielson hits the Psycho Knee…he grabs the wrists & stomps Nese’s face off…by the time he crosses Nese’s legs & reaches for the cross-face stretch submission, Nese is already out cold & the ref calls for the bell & the submission win (03:25)

*AFTER…Bryan Danielson grabs the mic & says it’s great to be home & he’s ready for another fight…he calls out MJF…MJF has no intention of performing for these folks in Washington…they trade some Mom insults…MJF says just because Danielson looks like a goat, doesn’t make him the greatest of all time…wins & losses matter, so Danielson has to win his way to the #1 contender…which will take wrestling & winning on every show until Feb 8th…if he does, MJF will fight him at Revolution on March 5th…Danielson says he’ll agree to this stipulation, if he gets to make the stipulation for their world title match…MJF laughs at the idea of some kind of a no DQ where he can cheat right in front of the ref…but Danielson’s actually thinking about a 60-minute Iron Man Match…MJF is furious, but agrees.

(4)  Swerve Strickland def. AR Fox…Swerve’s tattooed freak henchman distracts the ref while Swerve & Fox are fighting for position on the top buckle…Parker Boudreaux hands something to Swerve that knocks Fox out, allowing Swerve to hit a Death Valley Driver to the apron’s edge…Swerve rolls Fox back in & hits the top buckle Swerve Stomp for the win (09:25).

*Saraya sits down with Renee, as well as Toni Störm & Hikaru Shida…Saraya says she’s sitting with the best wrestler in the world…so Toni will be her partner next week…Shida doesn’t look very pleased.

*The Gunns to the ring to lay to rest the FTR’s Legacy…they tease FTR coming to the ring, but they’re not here…the Gunns say FTR are never coming back…the Gunns are the new, best team in the world…Top Gunns, Out!

(5)  Jade Cargill & Red Velvet def. Kiera Hogan & Skye Blue…Jade chokeslams Kiera & orders Velvet to tag in & finish the job…Velvet drops to the floor defiantly & Kiera attempts a schoolgirl roll up on Jade that gets a 2 count…a pissed off Jade nearly Punt Kicks Kiera’s face off, for the win (07:10).

*Jay Lethal & Jeff Jarrett backstage with Renee…they’re furious over tonight’s outcome but on Friday they get a rematch & it’s No Holds Barred.

(6)  Darby Allin def. Samoa Joe…to become the NEW TNT Champion…Darby down the ramp 1st & hugs Nick Wayne, the son of his deceased mentor, in the front row…Joe out next & grabs Wayne by the throat…Darby shoots outside like a rocket…they fight up the ramp, Darby armed with his skateboard…Darby finds a 10’ ladder & wipes Joe out with a senton from the very top…they finally make it to the ring & the bell starts the match…Joe grabs a sleeper & Darby starts to fade…but mini-Cena hulks up & gets to his feet & runs Joe into an exposed turnbuckle (no idea when that happened)…Darby hits a Code Red, then a Coffin Drop to Joe’s back…then to the opposite corner for a traditional Coffin Drop for the clean win (08:37)…are you kidding me?…AFTER…confetti flies & Sting joins Darby to celebrate in front of his hometown fans as the show ends.
