AEW Dynamite Results (12/1) Duluth, GA – We are live inside the Gas South Arena in Duluth, GA, as the commentary duo of Excalibur and Tony Schiavone run down the lineup for tonight’s show. They confirm the announcement made by Tony Khan right before tonight’s show went on the air, which is that “Hangman” Adam Page will be defending his AEW World Championship against Bryan Danielson in the main event of the AEW Dynamite: Winter Is Coming special on TNT in two weeks in Garland, Texas.
“Hangman” Adam Page Fills In For Jim Ross Tonight
After that, we hear the familiar sounds of Hangman Page’s theme song and the AEW Champion himself emerges as fans break out into “Cowboy Sh*t” chants. Excalibur and Schiavone inform us that Hangman will be filling in for Jim Ross on commentary tonight due to JR’s ongoing battle with skin cancer.
Bryan Danielson vs. Alan “5” Angels
The bell sounds and we’re off-and-running with our first bout of the show this evening. We immediately hear the fans getting on Danielson’s case, as they boo him and begin chanting for Angels as these two lock-up and get this one underway.
“The American Dragon” lands some big kicks and chops early on, as he controls the offense coming out of the gate. Angels ends up fighting back into competitive form fairly quickly, however, as he backs Danielson into the corner of the ring and unloads with him as the fans explode in his hometown, showing support to their guy.
Angels ends up finding himself on the defensive again just moments later, as Danielson gets him down on the mat and goes to work on him with various kicks and stomps. He begins getting arrogant and slowly stalks Angels as he appears to be in control with relative ease at this point.
We see Danielson continue to show his arrogant side, as he dominates the action for a few more minutes, stopping briefly to taunt the fans. He reengages with Angels, who ends up catching him off-guard with a back-slide into a pin attempt. Danielson kicks out, however Angels follows up with some big strikes until Danielson takes him down and nearly secures a submission.
Alan “5” Angels ends up getting to the ropes to force Danielson to break the hold. He then steps outside the ropes on the ring apron, where he catches an unsuspecting Danielson with some kicks of his own that sends him out to the ringside area on the floor. He hits the ropes and dives through the ropes on the other side of the ring for a big tope suicida splash onto Danielson on the floor. He races up to the top-rope and follows that up with another big dive out to Danielson on the floor.
Back in the ring, Angels hits a Spanish Fly high-spot for a close near fall. He heads up to the top-rope backwards and looks for a moonsault press, however Danielson rolls out of the way and Angels takes a crash-landing. Danielson immediately catches him with a running knee and then grabs Angels hands and does the head-stomping spot that he has been using a lot lately. He then drops back and locks in his leg submission finisher, which forces the tap from Angels. Danielson picks up the win in tonight’s opener.
Winner: Bryan Danielson
After The Match: Bryan Danielson Taunts “Hangman” Adam Page
Once the match wraps up, Danielson remains in the ring and continues to hold onto his match-ending leg submission on Angels. Hangman wants to leave the commentary section and hit the ring to make the save, however his broadcast partners at the commentary table encourage him to be professional.
Instead, Tony Schiavone leaves the commentary section and heads to the ring for a post-match interview with Danielson. Danielson gets on the mic and taunts Page after once again bragging about knocking Colt Cabana’s teeth out in his hometown last week. He also gloats about tearing Angels’ knee tonight in his hometown.
From there, he goes on to taunt Hangman Page some more. We see Page watching on and getting increasingly annoyed as he remains at the commentary table while Danielson insults him repeatedly. He goes on to tell Page and the fans in Duluth that when they meet at Winter Is Coming in two weeks, he will prove to everyone that Page is a representative of “Coward Sh*t” as opposed to his self-proclaimed “Cowboy Sh*t.”
Finally, Page has heard enough and he throws down his headset and begins heading to the ring. He is stopped by John Silver from The Dark Order, who reminds him that he can’t touch Danielson before their scheduled match. He says that even though Page can’t, he can, and he heads down to the ring to do exactly that.
Nothing happens, as Danielson ends up exiting the ring and heading up the ramp to meet up with Hangman face-to-face. He tells him tonight is not the night, but when they meet at Winter Is Coming, he will do what he promised and become the AEW Champion in the process. He heads to the backstage area as we head to our first commercial break of the evening.
Miro Talks Being Torn Between His Head, Heart
When we return from the break, we see Miro in front of a super bare white screen, pacing around in his ring attire as he talks about being pushed out while he was looking for love and says now, however, he will be feared. He talks about what one does when his head and his heart are in direct conflict with each other. He closes by saying these are the words of “The Redeemer.”
Lee Moriarty vs. CM Punk
MJF settles in at the commentary table, as he will apparently be providing special guest commentary for this match. Punk stares over at MJF with a look of disgust on his face. MJF puts on his headset and immediately takes a dig at Punk, saying “CM” stands for Cooking Meth.
The bell sounds and now we are off-and-running with our second match of the evening. Punk dominates the action for the first minute or two, however from there we see Moriarty start to take over. He isolates and controls the arm of Punk, focusing his attack on that limb as MJF mocks Punk on commentary.
He takes shots due to Moriarty being competitive with him, noting that’s not what a top guy would be doing if he were in the ring with Moriarty. He asks Schiavone if top guys from his day had competitive matches with unranked, relatively unknown wrestlers.
Finally, Punk starts to take back over on offense. He heads to the top rope and connects with a flying clothesline as Excalibur talks us into a mid-match, picture-in-picture commercial break as the action continues in the ring.
When we return, we see that Moriarty has returned to competitive form in this one, as he is in the offensive drivers seat as we settle back from the break. This leads to a ton more taunting and mocking from MJF for struggling with someone on Moriarty’s level. Moriarty nearly finishes Punk off with a submission, however he finally frees himself.
After that, we see Punk and Moriarty exchange a bunch of back-and-forth roll-ups and pin attempts and then Punk turns Moriarty inside-out with a big clothesline. He goes to put Moriarty’s arm behind his back for a short-arm lariat, however Punk reverses and ends up connecting with one of his own.
Punk follows that up with an Edgecution type of move for a super close near fall. Punk ends up countering the next spot attempted by Moriarty and he connects with the GTS for the pin fall victory in a very competitive match.
Winner: CM Punk
After The Match: CM Punk, MJF Verbal Warfare Part 2
After the match wraps up, MJF puts his headset down and walks over to the entrance ramp with a microphone in hand. He goes on to taunt and mock Punk for struggling in recent weeks to beat guys such as QT Marshall and Lee Moriarty.
From there, MJF gets vicious with his insults, taunting Punk for trying to get into Britt Baker’s pants. He goes on to talk about Punk looking unamused and confused. He says that’s how he would look if he got Baker in the bedroom and then goes on to call Punk a one-pump-chump.
Punk then gets on the microphone and fires back at MJF. He tells him that his comments are cute and says it’s interesting that he talks about Marshall and Moriarty being better than MJF — and he knows it. MJF tries to fire back at Punk on the mic, but Punk cuts him off and tells him to shut up.
He dares him to come into the ring right now, vowing to kick his ass if he does. MJF gets back on the mic and says that’s not going to happen. He then tells the fans to shut up before vowing to win the Dynamite Diamond Ring Battle Royal on next week’s Dynamite. He says he’ll be among fans that respect him in Long Island. He says he’ll be better than Piper in Portland, Bret in Canada and Punk in Chicago.
Finally, he tells MJF that he must’ve brought his dog Larry with him because it stinks in here. He calls Punk PG-Punk and says if he brings his dog Larry next week, he’ll beat up his dog just like he’s gonna beat Punk up when they finally meet in the ring.
Punk has heard enough and exits the ring with intentions of getting his hands on MJF for talking about his dog. Instead, when Punk gets close to MJF, out from behind The Pinnacle leader is Wardlow. He gets in front of MJF and stares Punk down. Punk makes an off-mic comment and then his music plays again as MJF and Wardlow head to the back.
Tony Schiavone Talks To Dr. Britt Baker, Jamie Hayter & Rebel
We shoot backstage and see Tony Schiavone is standing by with Dr. Britt Baker, D.M.D. and her pals Jamie Hayter and Rebel. She talks about Hayter coming up short in the TBS Women’s Championship Tournament, but says she’s gonna get things back on track.
Baker goes on to announce Riho vs. Jamie Hayter for next week’s show. She says if there’s anything left of Riho after Hayter is through with her, she can have a shot at her AEW Women’s Championship.
To close out the segment, she and her pals Hayter and Rebel, as well as Schiavone, do the “D.M.D.” finger-gesture as we then head back into another commercial break.
Adam Cole Joins Excalibur, Tony Schiavone On Special Guest Commentary
When we settle back in from the break, we immediately hear the familiar sounds of the popular entrance music of The Elite and Super Kliq’s own Adam Cole.
He makes his way out and heads all the way to the ring while Excalibur and Tony Schiavone inform us that he is about to join them on commentary. They speculate that he’s heading to the ring simply to do his “Boom — Adam Cole, Bay-Bay!” entrance routine before joining them as scheduled at the announce desk.
The fans do his routine with him and then he exits the ring and heads right back up the ramp to join the aforementioned duo on special guest commentary for our next match of the evening.
As he puts his headset on and joins Schiavone and Excalibur, we hear Orange Cassidy’s theme song. Out comes the “Freshly Squeezed” one who looks over at Cole. Cole says Cassidy isn’t scheduled for a match right now. He gets annoyed at Cassidy looking over at him and ends up leaving the commentary position to get in Cassidy’s face on the entrance ramp.
Cassidy does the big hands up and back down into his pockets gesture as the fans pop. Cole looks annoyed but then we see the plan come to fruition, as The Young Bucks — Nick and Matt Jackson — quietly emerge from the entrance tunnel behind Cassidy and Cole without any theme music to introduce them.
The other two members of The Super Elite / Super Kliq end up sneak-attacking Cassidy from behind. They beat him down and then mock him by doing wimpy, slow “super” kicks over-and-over again. Finally, some of the other Best Friends come out to run off Cole and the Bucks.
Tony Nese Sends Message To Sammy Guevara
Now we shoot to a pre-taped message and video package featuring “The Premier Athlete” Tony Nese addressing “The Spanish God” Sammy Guevara.
He talks about teaching Guevara what happens when you get in his face with his attack of him backstage on last week’s show. He then says that he’s gonna make injuring his ribs and kneeling on them while he’s in pain seem like nothing compared to what he’s going to do to him when they meet inside the ring with Guevara’s TNT Championship on-the-line on Rampage.
Wardlow vs. A.C. Adams
The bell sounds and we’re off-and-running with our next match here on Dynamite. Wardlow charges at Adams and nearly flattens him with a big kick. Moments later he is hoisting him up for a big match-ending power bomb before scoring the easy pin fall victory in what was nothing more than a squash match.
Once the match wraps up, we see Spears enter the ring and beat Adams down with post-match chair shots. We then head to another commercial break.
Penta El Zero Miedo & PAC With A Message For FTR
Tony Schiavone is backstage with Penta El Zero Miedo and PAC, who are accompanied by Alex Abrahantes. Schiavone brings up the originally scheduled match at Rampage and then introduces the aforementioned Death Triangle duo.
Penta talks about FTR injuring Rey Fenix and then talks about what he is going to do to them when he finally gets his hands on them. “The Bastard” PAC then talks about only having one good eye before telling FTR to look into his “good eye” and know he’s going to hurt them.
The Gunn Club vs. Darby Allin & Sting
The bell sounds and we’re off-and-running with this battle of two undefeated tag-teams. We see Colten Gunn and Darby Allin start things off for their respective teams. Colten, surprisingly, jumps off to an early offensive lead over the fan-favorite.
Colten gets in some good strikes and even slams Darby down to the mat before taunting him a bit. Finally, we see Darby fight back into competitive form and take over. This leads to Colten tagging out. In comes his father, the legendary Billy Gunn.
The legend, however, watches on as Darby heads over and tags in another wrestling legend, as Sting enters the ring. Sting and Billy go face-to-face and let the crowd react a bit before they finally engage.
Sting fires away at Billy with some shots and then sends him to the ropes, however Billy sees Sting coming and takes the back door out of the fight momentarily, as he slides out to the floor to regroup and strategize with the other members of The Gunn Club — Colten and Austin.
From there, we see Billy send Colten back into the ring to duke it out with Sting. He does exactly that and Sting tags out. Darby comes in and Colten gets in some shots on him as well before tagging Billy back in. Billy gets behind Darby and hoists him up before bringing him down with a vengeance in a spot that we are shown immediately replays of afterwards.
The fans get on Billy’s case with an “assh*le! assh*le!” chant. He tags in his son again and in comes Colten to pick up where he left off, taking it to Darby. He stops after landing a few shots to taunt the crowd a bit and then he rams Darby into the top turnbuckle in his corner of the ring and tags Billy back in. As Billy re-enters the ring, we head to a mid-match, picture-in-picture commercial break as the action continues.
When we return from the break, we see the action still in progress. The intensity and speed picks up as the finish seems near. Finally we see The Gunn Club nearly steal this one, as Darby is shown close-up on camera bleeding profusely after being busted open during the break. The duo of Darby and Sting hit their finishers and then we see them pick up the win to keep their undefeated streak as a tag-team in tact.
Winners: Darby Allin & Sting
Chris Jericho Attacked Backstage By Team 2point0 & Daniel Garcia
We shoot backstage where Alex Marvez is standing by with Chris Jericho. Marvez brings up Chris Jericho sticking up for Eddie Kingston and helping him by beating down Daniel Garcia and Team 2point0 as they were attacking “The Mad King” after the Garcia-Kingston match on this past Friday night’s edition of Rampage.
Jericho calls Marvez by the name “Marvis” and then quickly clears things up, pointing out that he was not helping Kingston last week as much as he was giving Garcia and Team 2point0 what they deserve.
On that note, up walks Garcia and Team 2point0 and they sneak-attack Jericho with weapons and beat him down, leaving him laying backstage as we head to another commercial break.
Lio Rush Confronted By Team Taz & Their Newest Member — Dante Martin
We shoot back to the commentary section where Excalibur and Tony Schiavone inform us that following the backstage attack before the break, Chris Jericho will not be appearing on Rampage this coming Friday night as scheduled.
From there, we see Taz and his Team Taz buddies Hook and Powerhouse Hobbs standing behind him as Lio Rush comes out and gets on the mic from the entrance ramp. He talks about being a fighter and says even if he only has a one-percent chance, he’s gonna fight.
With that said, Taz tells Rush that’s fine and to take a look as his old friend and client Dante Martin joins them, along with Ricky Starks. The duo smile and laugh as Rush looks upset about Martin being part of Team Taz.
Thunder Rosa Confronts Jade Cargill & Mark Sterling
We shoot backstage where we see Jade Cargill and her manager “Smart” Mark Sterling. They talk in arrogant fashion about Rampage being Cargill’s show before turning their attention to the TBS Women’s Championship Tournament.
Up walks Thunder Rosa who talks about being given the option to cover one match on Rampage this Friday after the announcement that Jericho will not be working the show as usual due to the backstage attack earlier tonight. She mumbles something in Spanish as Cargill and Sterling walk off.
TBS Women’s Championship Tournament Quarterfinal
Kris Statlander vs. Ruby Soho
The bell sounds and we’re off-and-running with this quarterfinal bout in the tourney designed to crown the inaugural TBS Women’s Champion. We see Soho jump off to an early offensive lead, however it isn’t long-lived, as Statlander takes over and actually gets a little over-confident.
This annoys Soho and the two re-engage where again Statlander gets the better of things and even adds some more style-points by gloating a bit after getting the better of Soho. Finally Soho turns up the pace and intensity, catching Statlander with a flatliner for a near fall as Excalibur talks us into a mid-match, picture-in-picture commercial break as the action continues in the ring.
As we settle back in from the break, we see the conclusion of this quarterfinal bout, as Soho finishes a very game Statlander with a pin fall victory to advance to the semifinals of the TBS Women’s Championship Tournament.
Winner and ADVANCING in the TBS Women’s Championship Tournament: Ruby Soho
After The Match: Ruby Soho’s Semifinal Opponent In TBS Tourney Attacks
Once the match wraps up, we see Soho and Statlander shake hands in a sign of mutual respect in the ring. Statlander heads up the ramp after that where we see Vickie Guerrero emerge and walk up to her.
She says something to her while Soho looks on and continues celebrating her victory to the crowd, when out of nowhere, she is attacked. Her opponent in the next round of the TBS Women’s Championship Tournament, fellow semifinalist Nyla Rose, hits the ring and attacks her.
Rose leaves Soho laying and walks off and then we get a look at the updated brackets for the tourney, with Soho vs. Rose and Thunder Rosa vs. Jade Cargill scheduled in the next round. The commentators then run down the announced lineups for Friday’s Rampage and next week’s Dynamite before talking us into another commercial time out.
Atlanta Street Fight
Andrade El Idolo vs. Cody Rhodes
We hear the bell sound as the commentators remind us that this is an Atlanta Street Fight. The action quickly spills outside of the ring, as we see Cody and Andrade brawling at ringside. Andrade sends Cody face-first into the corner of the steel steps, prompting the commentators to put on their serious voices while Cody is down and out.
Cody ends up recovering and he fires back at Andrade, stopping briefly to chat with hip-hop artist T-Pain, whom the commentators point out is sitting front row on the broadcast. Cody then asks T-Pain for a chair and the rapper obliges.
Rhodes bashes Andrade with the steel chair and then blasts him with some follow-up chops before finally throwing Andrade into the ring. The crowd boos as Cody is in control of things, and he stops to acknowledge them. Andrade charges at him while he’s distracted by the crowd, but Cody takes him out with a big shot.
Now the fans boo even louder and begin chanting at Cody. He once again takes his focus off of his opponent and soaks in the negative reaction from the fans inside the Gas South Arena. This time, Andrade benefits from the distraction, as he blasts Cody with a momentum-shifting low-blow.
Andrade takes Cody’s weight belt and whips him with it a few times before tossing it out into the crowd. He stops and looks around, making sure no one threw it back like last week, and then he pulls out the sack that Jose The Assistant brought with him to the ring.. He pulls out a weapon and hits Cody with it. He then grabs a chair and bashes Cody with it.
The action spills out to the floor again where Andrade beats Cody down with some more chair shots. He then reaches under the ring and pulls out a steel chain. He throws it in the ring and continues digging around under the ring while Cody re-enters the squared circle. Andrade pulls a table out from under the ring and the fans erupt, which prompts Andrade to put it right back under the ring to draw some desired heel heat.
From there, Andrade heads back into the ring to go back to work on Cody. Cody has the steel chain, but it does him no good as Andrade connects with a big shot that stuns him. The fans chant “We want tables!” and Andrade acknowledges them before sticking by his decision to ignore their requests in favor of garnering some more boos and negative reactions.
As we settle back in from the break, we see Andrade in the middle of climbing to the middle rope. He goes for a moonsault but as he was turning over and on his way down, Cody throws a chair at him, Sabu-style. It connects and buys “The American Nightmare” some much needed time to recover. He recovers a bit and then re-engages with Andrade as the fans again get on his case with loud boos.
Cody goes on to grab the steel chain and blast Andrade with it. He ends up dumping Andrade out to the floor at ringside before turning to the booing crowd and looking confused and somewhat discouraged. He hits the ropes and looks for a tope suicida through the ropes onto Andrade, however Andrade had it well-timed and ends up catching Cody on his way out with a chair shot.
Andrade tears up the pad at ringside and is looking to deliver a big spot on Cody directly on the concrete. Cody ends up cutting Andrade off as he picks him up to do exactly that. He blasts Andrade with a big shot and back body-drops him before turning his face directly to the camera to show the crimson mask that his face has become. The crowd doesn’t seem to care that he is bleeding, as they continue to boo him regardless.
Cody keeps reaching under the ring with more and more weapons, seeing how the crowd reacts to each of them. He then watches as Andrade comes flying over the ropes and connecting on him with a big splash. He then beats Cody down in the corner of the ring as he sits slumped down on the mat. The fans break out in a “We want tables!” chant. He puts a chair in front of Cody’s face and then charges from the opposite corner of the ring, connecting with a knee to the chair — which slams into the bloody face of Cody.
We see Andrade down and selling his knee from the impact of it driving into the chair. Cody remains slumped and bloody in the corner. Andrade hits a follow-up spot and goes for the cover, however Cody kicks out and keeps this one alive. Andrade rolls out of the ring and starts moving chairs and weapons around. He reaches under the ring and pulls out a table, which elicits a big pop from the fans inside the Gas South Arena.
Andrade pushes the table through the ropes and into the ring. He wedges it in the corner of the ring and slanted. He ends up hip-tossing Cody right into and through the table. The fans pop and we see both guys down and out and recovering.
From there, Andrade heads back to the ringside area and once again reaches under the ring and pulls out a table. He gets on the ring apron with it and steps through the ropes with it, just as Cody recovers and gets his hands on the other end of the table. The two tug-of-war over the table a bit and then Andrade lays out Cody and puts him on the table. He begins climbing to the top-rope but Cody recovers, pops off the table and blasts Andrade with a shot. He heads up the ropes with Andrade but Andrade knocks him down and back onto the table.
Andrade turns around on the ropes and is looking for a moonsault to put Cody through the table, however Cody recovers again and ends up catching Andrade with a shot. Out of nowhere a masked person ends up in the ring. The commentators speculate as to who it is and then the mask is removed to show it is Brandi Rhodes. She pours fluid onto the table and then lights it on fire. Cody takes Andrade off the ropes the hard way and puts him through the flaming table. Cody covers Andrade while he was still on fire and he gets the 1-2-3 for the big Atlanta Street Fight victory in tonight’s excellent Dynamite main event.
Once the match wraps up, Cody remains laid on the mat covered in blood as Brandi smiles and looks at him proudly after he pulls off the victory. The crowd reacts in mixed bag fashion as he gets to his feet. The commentators talk us through some key match highlights and then we return live in the ring where Cody celebrates his win on the top-rope posing for the fans. The commentators run down the lineups for Friday’s Rampage and next week’s Dynamite before taking us off the air. Thanks for joining us!
Winner: Cody Rhodes
