AEW Dynamite Results - June 10, 2020

AEW Dynamite Results - June 10, 2020
Jim Ross, Tony Schiavone and The Excalibur welcome us to the show and run down some of the action on tap for the weekly AEW on TNT broadcast. Chris Jericho joins the announce desk.

FTR vs. The Butcher & The Blade

The bell sounds and it will be The Blade and Dax Harwood kicking things off for their respective teams. The two lock up and break. They lock up again and The Blade pushes him to the corner but Dax turns him around. The two now exchange vicious chops back-and-forth.

Before The Blade can get anything going, the decorated duo of FTR start channeling their inner Brainbusters, as ironically enough we see Tully Blanchard and Arn Anderson shown on camera at ringside scouting the action. The two utilize quick tags and good ring positioning, as well as solid mat-based amateur-wrestling style offense to establish clear cut control before opening their offense up a bit more.

Dax tags Cash in, who picks up where he left off, taking it to The Blade. Now things break loose as all four guys end up in the ring, but before control is totally lost, the referee restores order. Cash is taking it to The Butcher now, who tagged in. He fails to shoulder block him down, but a dropkick gets the big man on shaky legs. It looks like Cash hurt himself on the landing from the dropkick, but apparently he was playing possom to lure him in. The announcers say he pulled a Bret Hart.

The Blade tags back in and while the heel duo set the referee up with a distraction, we see The Butcher choking Cash in the heel corner of the ring, using the tag-rope to cut off the breathing of one-half of FTR.

Now it is The Blade and The Butcher who are using the smart tactic of quick tags to keep fresh guys and constantly changing offense on the weakened Cash. As The Blade uses his own mat-based wrestling to control Cash, we see the camera pan over to Chris Jericho on commentary as he puts over this match as a classic tag-team style bout that he was accustomed to watching as a youngster in Canada. Just moments later, FTR hits a cool double-team finisher to pick up the pin.

Winners: FTR

Following their victory in this week's opener, FTR are joined by Tony Schiavone in the ring for a post-match interview. Before they can say much, however, they are interrupted by The Young Bucks. Nick and Matt Jackson make their way down to the ring.

They thank FTR for helping them out in the ring a couple of weeks ago and then talk about their reputation and history.

Before much else can happen with this, another interruption takes place as The Butcher attacks from behind while the duo of Kip Sabian and Jimmy Havoc, and eventually the AEW Tag-Team Champions of Kenny Omega and "Hangman" Adam Page make their out as well, as all hell breaks loose in the ring.

The heels bail, and there's some back-and-forth shouting going on between FTR and The Young Bucks as we head to a commercial break.

We shoot backstage where Allie is with QT Marshall and Dustin Rhodes. Marshall is accompanied by Allie, who is wearing a Nightmare Family jacket, which prompts Brandi Rhodes to become curious.

Dustin Rhodes tells Marshall that he needs his partner focused with his head in the game, because next week the two will be challenging Kenny Omega and "Hangman" Adam Page in an AEW Tag-Team Championship match on next week's show.

Nyla Rose & Penelope Ford vs. Kris Statlander & Hikaru Shida

Now things are sent back down to the ring where we are gearing up for another tag-team bout, this time in the AEW women's division. The advertised Nyla Rose and Penelope Ford vs. Hikaru Shida and Kris Statlander match is up next.

All four make their way out to the ring and the bell sounds to get this one officially underway. Things get off to a good start early on and then a few minutes into the bout, we head to a mid-match commercial break.

When we return from the break the action picks up a bit, as the AEW Women's Champion tags into the match and is blasting Penelope Ford over and over again. She drops Ford and ducks out to the floor, charging towards her and blasting her with a flying knee to the grill.

Back in the ring Shida hits a missile dropkick off the top-rope and although it looked like she was going for the Falcon Arrow, she calls an audible half-way through the move. She goes for the pin anyways but only gets two.

Statlander tags back in and picks up where Shida left off, taking it to Ford until Ford nails her with a modified DDT to turn the tables in favor of the heel duo. Ford does the old Trish Stratus matrix move to avoid a big shot, following it up with a Cutter.

Shida tags back in however and is a ball of fire, hitting any-and-everything that moves and taking it to Nyla Rose. She lifts Rose up for an apparent Falcon Arrow on the much larger foe, however in mid-air, Rose switches it and picks Shida up. She lays Shida across the top rope and does the same with an interfering Statlander. She hits a big knee on them both.

Now a well-timed interference from outside the ring leads to Shida taking back over inside the ring. She hits another big knee on Ford, who is now the legal woman in the match. A big ref distraction spot leads to Rose tossing Ford the AEW women's title. She blasts her with it and hits her finisher on Shida. 1-2-3. The heel duo picks up the win.

Winners: Nyla Rose & Penelope Ford

The announcers kick it to a couple of video packages. First we see the usual weekly black-and-white video update from Darby Allin, who is still medically suspended from competing in AEW. We see legendary skateboard figure Tony Hawk with him and he tells Darby not to worry, he doesn't need a doctor's note to skate. The two then skate around.

The second of two video packages is the latest update from Dr. Britt Baker, who updates her fans on her road to recovery from her constantly changing very minor injuries. After her video wraps up, we head to a commercial break.

Santana, Ortiz & Jake Hager vs. Best Friends & Orange Cassidy

The bell sounds and here we go. Things jump off to an explosive start, with Santana and Ortiz having great success (Borat!) early on. Jericho is having a field day on commentary with this one, particularly with the disgust in his voice when talking about Orange Cassidy.

Best Friends get in some decent spots before the tables are once again turned in favor of The Inner Circle duo. We get a pair of tope suicidas to the floor before the action resumes inside the ring. We head to a mid-match commercial break.

We're back from the break and within a few seconds each team tags in a fresh man, as Hager tags in for The Inner Circle and Cassidy tags in for the babyface trio. He walks up to Hager with his hands in his pockets doing his very slow, wimpy leg kicks.

Hager shucks him off but Orange fires up like a man possessed and is flying all over the place with impressive quickness and agility, mixing in some high-risk offense. He goes to the well one time too many, however, as Hager catches him coming off the top-rope with a big slam.

As Hager goes to cover Orange for the pin, Best Friends hit the ring to break it up, leading to all hell breaking loose once again. Eventually we build to a big leaping cannonball spot from Proud -N- Powerful to Cassidy. They hoist him up afterwards looking for their Street-Sweeper finisher, however interference from Best Friends on the floor leads to an unexpected victory for the babyfaces when Cassidy scores the pin for his team.

Winners: Best Friends & Orange Cassidy

Immediately after pulling off the win, Hager and the Proud 'N' Powerful duo begin a prolonged, vicious post-match beat down of the baby face trio. Now Chris Jericho joins the scene, as he leaves the announce table to join in on the beatdown, which culminates with Orange Cassidy getting busted open, bleeding everywhere before getting bashed over the head with a 20-lb bag of oranges.

Now we see Tony Schiavone with Maxwell Jacob Friedman. MJF talks about being undefeated for over a year but sees Jungle Boy getting a TNT title shot before him. He refers to himself as a "great white shark" that is "swimming in a pool of minnows."

Friedman keeps talking in typical arrogant fashion when we see Billy Gunn walk up. Gunn says he too is a great white.MJF taunts Gunn and makes fun of him for always getting his "worthless" sons jobs.

Gunn grabbed MJF's wrist and MJF calls Wardlow over. The big man then enters the picture to keep things from escalating.

Sammy Guevara vs. Colt Cabana

The bell sounds to get this one underway and after giving each other the bird, these two go at it briefly before we head to a mid-match commercial break.

We're back from the break and the action is still ongoing in the ring between these two. We see Cabana avoid a burning GTS by Guevara before responding with a flip, flop and fly and bionic elbow, both of which connects for "Boom Boom."

Finally things build to the finish of the match, as Cabana looks to execute his Chicago Skyline finisher when he slips on the ropes and Guevara hits a well-timed GTH for the pin and the win.

Winner: Sammy Guevara

Evil Uno and Stu Grayson come out for the first time in months followed by the rest of the Dark Order and Brodie Lee. Lee walks up to Cabana and helps him up before simply walking out.

As Guevara starts bragging about how great he is Matt Hardy comes out and says he doesn’t have any issues with Guevara and says that he respects him. Hardy says that Guevara reminds him of the Hardyz and he is the future of AEW. Hardy offers some advice to him and says that he has to get away from Chris Jericho to ever reach his potential.

Guevara says he tried to kill him not once but twice. Guevara says that he doesn’t know if Hardy is “dumb, stupid or broken.” Matt breaks out into his “Broken” character and gets in the ring with Guevara and says he will mash him and eat him.

A vignette highlighting Joey Janela is shown with him talking about what happened to him over the last few months and how he’s lost his direction. Sonny Kiss pulls up to Janela as he comes out of a bar and offers him a ride. “To be continued.”

We go to commercial.

Dasha approaches Colt Cabana but he ignores her and walks into the Dark Order’s locker room.

Alex Marvez catches up to Jon Moxley as he arrives backstage but Moxley stops him and says he’s ina real bad mood. He says he’s in a bad mood because he has little to no patience or time for people that run their mouth when they have no idea what they are talking about. He says Taz has been running his mouth all week about how Cage is going to beat him and if he was trying to get under his skin it worked. Moxley says he can’t wait for Fyter Fest so he can pop Cage’s head like a pimple and shut Taz up. He says he is one miserable son of a bitch and the fact that Cage and Taz or anyone else thinks they could beat him pisses him off and makes him more violent.

Moxley says that Taz is one of the great trash talkers of all time but then Taz walks up and gets in Moxley’s face. He says all Moxley does is run his mouth and at Fyter Fest Cage will put him out. Cage attacks Moxley from behind.

Moxley grabs a pipe nearby and swings it at Cage but he moves and Cage knocks out the window of a car. Cage then slams Moxley into a wall and then onto the car. Cage was about to Powerbomb Moxley on the concrete but Taz stops him only for Cage to still pick Moxley up and slam him into the back window of the car. Back to commercial.

TNT Championship
Cody (c) vs. Marq Quen

Now the announce team sends things over to the video package leading into this week's AEW Dynamite main event, which will feature "The American Nightmare" Cody putting his TNT Championship on-the-line against Marq Quen of Private Party.

After the video package wraps up, the Private Party theme plays and out come Marq Quen, Isaiah Kassidy and Matt Hardy. They all hug and touch knuckles ala the Freebirds and early-WWE-day Hardy Boyz before Hardy and Kassidy splinter off and Quen heads to the ring by himself. As he finishes up his entrance, we head to a commercial break.

We return from the break and "The American Nightmare" Cody makes his way down to the ring for this week's defense of his TNT Championship. Justin Roberts does the formal pre-match introductions, the bell sounds and here we go.

Things are pretty even coming out of the gate, however it is Quen who surprisingly pulls out into the lead, flying all over the ring and scoring with big shots and high-risk / high-impact offense. Cody eventually slows the momentum and turns the tide in his favor. He locks Quen in a Dragon-Sleeper and starts cranking on the hold as J.R. takes us to a mid-match commercial break.

Cody hits a Kneebreaker and then lifts Quen up to the top rope. Cody climbs up with Quen and hits a Reverse Suplex. As Quen lands he immediately grabs his ankle and Cody spent pretty much the entire break working on that ankle and knee. Quen attempts a Moonsault but his ankle gives way again. Quen still manages to hit a Standing Shooting Star Press for a nearfall.

Quen hits a wild Corkscrew Reverse DDT for another nearfall. Cody rolls to the floor to get away but Quen hits a Plancha over the top onto Cody on the floor and starts limping after. Quen hits a Somersault Plancha over the top and grabs his ankle again. Quen rolls back in the ring and tries to do another high spot but falls down and sells the ankle.

Cody charges at Quen but Quen tosses him away and then hits a Fosburry Flop onto Cody on the floor. Quen rolls Cody back in the ring and gets a nearfall. Quen goes to the top again but it took him forever because of the ankle allowing Cody to roll out onto the ramp. Quen hits an insane 450 Splash onto Cody on the ramp!

Quen rolls Cody back in the ring and then climbs to the top for a Shooting Star Press but Cody catches his leg in midair and puts him in an Ankle Lock! Cody grapevines the leg and almost puts him in a death lock forcing Quen to tap.

Winner & STILL TNT Champ: Cody

Cody helps Quen up after the match and hugs him. Jake Hager walks out and immediately grabs Arn Anderson by the throat! Hager elbows Cody and then tosses him across the ring before hitting a Spinebuster! Private Party and Matt Hardy come back out with chairs and chase Hager off.

PNP and Guevara come out and a huge brawl erupts! Cody says that if Hager wants a TNT Title shot at Fyter Fest then he’s got it!
