AEW Dynamite Results (2/16) Nashville, TN

We are live from the Nashville Municipal Auditorium in Nashville, TN, where CM Punk sits in the middle of the ring to start the show.

He says if you don’t know by now, you should… his name is CM Punk. He’s straightedge, he’s drug-free, and he’s alcohol-free, and that means he is better than you. He asks the fans if that sounds familiar. He says inspired people, some who became straightedge, some who even sit like him. Then there’s MJF, who tries to walk and talk like him, but he can’t think like him.

Punk says you think he’d be mad about losing to MJF, but he’s proud of him. He thinks he is Bret in Calgary, Piper in Portland, and Punk in Chicago, but the fact is he’s shitty little Max from Long Island. He shouts out Jon Moxley for the assist last week, and now he gets to pick the time, date, stipulation for the match.


CM Punk says the place is AEW Revolution, which leaves us with the match. He says, maybe you put him in a cage, but he’s seen Wardlow and he can climb, and Max could still run away. He says he thought about tough matches he’s had, and when you lose you learn. So he thought about matches where he left pieces of himself in the ring. He thought about Piper in Portland, and he asks MJF if he will be his valentine, as he pulls out a dog collar.

Punk says these matches take years off your career, so he needs to tell MJF one more thing and he demands that he comes out. MJF comes to the stage, and Punk pulls out a picture of a young MJF meeting him, which Punk says was the greatest day of MJF’s life, and to him it was a Friday. At Revolution, it will be the worst day of MJF’s life, and for him, it will be Sunday. He promises the mat will be stained with MJF’s blood. MJF gets on the microphone, but he just drops it, says nothing, and leaves.

— A three-way tag match for AEW Revolution is planned for the tag team titles, and we will find out in the next few weeks just who exactly will be joining Luchasaurus and Jungle Boy.

Bryan Danielson vs. Lee Moriarty

The commentators talk about how Danielson has vowed to give Lee Moriarty a lesson in violence tonight as the theme for Moriarty hits and he makes his way out and heads to the ring. 

We hear the bell and this one is now off-and-running. Danielson extends his hand to Moriarty for a pre-match sign of respect, but when Moriarty goes to shake it, Danielson pulls it away like a true heel. The two get after it from there and the match immediately breaks into some mat-based amateur-style grappling.

Danielson gets Moriarty in a surf board on the mat and locks in a dragon sleeper with the knees captured. Moriarty escapes and looks for his signature stretch-submission, but “The American Dragon” avoids it. As the action returns standing, Moriarty starts blasting Danielson with some stiff European uppercuts. Danielson uses some fancy movement and then begins blasting Moriarty with repeated “Yes!” kicks in the ropes. He blasts him with a knee to the grill as Moriarty was dangling off the middle ropes and then we head to a mid-match commercial break as the action continues.

When we return from the break, we see Danielson hit a suplex and go for back-to-back pin attempts. He is still clearly in control of the offense in this one, but this doesn’t last for long, as Moriarty counters another pin attempt by Danielson into a modified Boston Crab. Danielson counters back into mount position and elbows the crap out of Moriarty. Moriarty counters back to mount himself and returns the favor, peppering Danielson with some elbows as well until Danielson counters into his LeBelle Lock submission attempt. Moriarty makes it to the ropes to escape and the fans break out into a loud “This is awesome!” chant.

Danielson blasts Moriarty with an open-handed smack in the mouth for the second time in the bout, but this only enrages him. Moriarty begins blasting Danielson with repeated elbows while standing but Danielson blocks the last one and crushes Moriarty with a rolling elbow strike. Moriarty fights back and ends up locking Danielson in his Border City Stretch hold. Danielson escapes and hits a big modified side suplex and then stalks Moriarty in the corner with a sinister look in his eyes, which the commentators point out. He charges and blasts Moriarty with a psycho knee but waves the referee off afterwards.

We see Danielson grab the wrists of Moriarty and he begins stomping the hell out of him over and over again. He transitions into the triangle sleeper and in Nate Diaz fashion, throws up a double biceps pose as the ref calls for the bell. Great match.

Winner: Bryan Danielson

Bryan Danielson Wants His Answer From Jon Moxley

Once the match wraps up, Danielson brings up his vow to teach Moriarty a lesson in violence. He asks the fans if he passed or failed. They react pretty much the same when he says both, which leads him to say that’s why he doesn’t trust the American audience with anything.

He says that’s not why he grabbed a microphone, however, and then brings up his offer to join forces with Jon Moxley a couple of weeks ago. He demands an answer. He drops the mic.

Before Danielson can exit the ring, however, “Wild Thing” hits and out comes Jon Moxley through the crowd as the commentators bring up him meeting his daughter today. He begins heading to the ring through the crowd and it appears Danielson could get his answer right now.

Mox goes on to tell a story about how he used to be like the young talent in the AEW locker room. He brings up facing Bryan Danielson at an independent show years ago. He says he came up short but getting a taste of who he was told is the best wrestler in the world just made him angrier and better.

He goes on to explain that he had more chances to share the ring with Danielson, but points out that he’s never beaten him. He then brings up the offer that Danielson extended recently and says it got him thinking about all the carnage they could cause and how it could help launch a ton of careers in the locker room.

Moxley says no matter how hard he tried he couldn’t think of one reason to say no. He says then he got to wondering if the only reason Danielson wants to stand side-by-side by him is because he doesn’t want to find himself in the one spot no one wants to be in — standing across the ring from him. He says if that’s the case, then he’s already beaten Danielson.

He questions what Danielson’s motives are. He says it’s time to find out. He says he’s not saying yes, but he’s not saying no. He tells Danielson he’ll leave it up to him. He points out he is not the young kid from so many years ago. He says he doesn’t stand side-by-side with nobody until he bleeds with them first. He drops the mic and exits the ring as the fans pop.

Keith Lee Says Phase 1 Is Done

We shoot to a vignette featuring new comments from Keith Lee. He talks about phase one already being done as highlights are shown of his debut last week. He says phase two will be at the Face of the Revolution Ladder Match.

Face Of The Revolution Qualifying Match
Wardlow vs. Max Caster

Now the bell sounds and we’re off-and-running with this one. After Bowens grabs the boot of Wardlow from the ringside area, we see Caster jump off to an early offensive advantage. On that note, Excalibur talks us into a mid-match commercial break as the action continues.

When we return from the break we see Caster get a cheap shot in on Wardlow with a chain wrapped around his hand. He heads to the top-rope and follows up with his Mic Drop finisher for a super close near fall. Wardlow kicks out, however, and then counters a move attempted by him into his power bomb sequence. He puts his foot on Caster’s chest and picks up the win to advance to the Face of the Revolution Ladder Match.

After the match, Bowens hits the ring and attacks Wardlow from behind, but he fights him off with relative ease and hits him with a power bomb as well. Spears hits the ring and hits Bowens with some chair shots for good measure.

Winner and ADVANCING to the Face of the Revolution Ladder Match: Wardlow

Britt Baker Gets Advice On What To Do If Mercedes Martinez Loses

Tony Schiavone is standing by behind-the-scenes with Mercedes Martinez. She is joined by Britt Baker and her cronies. She reminds Martinez that she better not lose against Thunder Rosa tonight. In comes the heel karate coach dude from the Karate Kid movies and when she leaves, Baker asks him what she should do if she loses. He says you know what to do — no mercy. We head to another commercial break.

Adam Cole, Bobby Fish & Kyle O’Reilly Beat Down Hangman Page

Tony Schiavone welcomes Hangman Page to the ring and he tries to reflect on last week, but Adam Cole cuts him off. He tells the fans to give Page a warm round of applause. He puts over the match and then tells Tony to get out of his ring. Cole says he has been a World Champion everywhere he has gone, and it’s a shame Page’s run will have to come to an end at some point.

Page often wondered how Cole felt watching his friends build an empire without him, and how it is looking at his former Bullet Club teammate holding the belt he’ll never hold. Cole says he hasn’t heard The Young Bucks talk about Page in weeks, or The Dark Order. Page says he isn’t perfect, but he doesn’t think Cole has the best record in friendship either. The more Cole talks, the more he thinks this might be Cole’s biggest regret.

Cole says Page has become an unbelievable wrestler and champion. But now he is here, and now he is, or anytime they’ve been in a promotion together, he’s always been known as the, ‘other Adam.’ This leads to Hangman putting down the title and microphone, but Cole says he has nothing but love, respect, and admiration for him. He would be the guy he wants to share the ring with most in AEW, and he says someday they’ll fight for that title man to man. He says when it happens, may the best man win, and they shake hands.

As he does, we see Bobby Fish and Kyle O’Reilly attack Page from behind. Cole runs back to the ring and helps with the sneak attack beatdown of the champ. Out rushes security to restore order in the ring. The Dark Order runs to the ring and finally gets things split up but then No. 10 of The Dark Order goes rogue and starts beating down the security. He launches one out of the ring onto a bunch of other guards on the floor.

Chris Jericho & Jake Hager vs. Santana & Ortiz

Now we head back to the ring for a featured tag-team contest. On that note, the familiar sounds of Chris Jericho’s theme plays as “Le Champion” makes his way to the ring accompanied by Jake Hager.

The duo settle into the ring and his music dies down. From there, the theme for Santana & Ortiz plays and out they come for this featured bout. As they settle into the ring, Eddie Kingston’s theme hits and he comes out to a huge pop.

“The Mad King” taps hands with Santana & Ortiz as he settles into his spot at ringside. The bell sounds and we’re off-and-running with this one. Jericho and Santana kick things off for their respective teams.

Inside the ring, Santana and Chris Jericho go back and forth until Jericho gets clotheslined as Santana then attacks Jericho in the corner with a splash. He then starts throwing some big chops and a dropkick down to the back of Chris from the second rope.

Ortiz tags in and the duo work several double team moves. Ortiz then gets planted down to the mat and that allows Jake Hager to tag in, as they hit a double shoulder tackle to him. Ortiz tries to throw forearms to Hager, but he drops him both times with bigger shots. Ortiz looks to work the knee, but he follows up with a belly-to-belly throw and then a Hager Bomb.

Jericho and Hage maintain control with frequent tags. Chris hits 10 clotheslines in the corner and then pushes him down onto the middle rope. Santana and Hager both come in, and Santana is able to showcase his aggression, dropping the bigger man down with a focus on the knee, but he then runs into the Codebreaker and then the slam by Hager, but Santana kicks out!

Jericho tags in as Hager is sent to the outside, and he is able to hit a running bulldog. He aims for the lionsault, but Ortiz grabs him on the ropes and Santana then slams him down to the mat, while Ortiz nails Hager on the floor. They hit the Street Sweeper, but Jericho kicks out! Chris then showcases his intelligence by locking in the Liontamer to Santana as a reversal, but he makes it to the ropes. Kingston gets onto the apron, but Jericho springboards and dropkicks him.

Jericho looks for the Judas Effect but misses, and Ortiz catches him with a strike of his own ad Santana then nails a discus clothesline for the win.

After the match, Jericho looks shocked and he lunges out of the ring and charges at “The Mad King.” The two duke it out until security breaks things up.

Winners: Santana & Ortiz

The Young Bucks Bicker With Bobby Fish & Kyle O’Reilly

We shoot backstage where the trio of Adam Cole, Bobby Fish and Kyle O’Reilly are standing by. They talk about their interaction with Hangman Page and mention some upcoming matches they have scheduled and then reDragon asks where The Young Bucks were when things was going down with Hangman Page and The Dark Order.

This leads to the two teams bickering a bit and then they walk off in a huff as they vow to see each other in the Casino Battle Royale. We head to a commercial break after this.

No Disqualification
Mercedes Martinez vs. Thunder Rosa

When we return from the break, out comes Mercedes Martinez for our next match of the evening, which “The Dapper Yapper” points out will be a no disqualification match. She settles into the ring and her theme dies down.

From there, the theme for Thunder Rosa hits and she makes her way out in yellow ring attire with a steel chair in hand. Martinez meets her in the aisle and ends up eating a vicious chair shot from Rosa. Martin Kove, the Karate Kid actor from earlier in the show, is shown in the front row as another cameo on the broadcast this evening.

The action continues with Rosa in control of things. She heads out to the floor and pulls out a table but Martinez stops her before she can do anything further. She takes over control of the offense as they continue to brawl. Rosa ends up taking back over again and she climbs up the rails in the audience for a big diving splash spot onto Martinez.

After Martinez recovers a bit, she takes back over on offense as the commentators talk us into a mid-match commercial break.

When we return, we see Martinez hit a crazy suplex on Rosa with the two landing on a table that is laying across the ring apron. The action picks back up in the ring and Rosa starts to take over.

Rosa puts a trash can over Martinez’s head and runs over and blasts it with a kick. She goes for the cover, however Martinez manages to hang on and keep this match alive. Rosa drags Martinez to the corner and climbs up to the middle rope. Martinez bashes Rosa in the head with a trash can lid and then climbs up after her.

She hits a crazy German suplex on Rosa off the ropes and folds her in half. Brutal. She climbs up to the top after that and connects with a flying elbow smash. She goes for the cover but Rosa somehow kicks out after the count of two. Martinez lays some chairs in the middle of the ring and hooks Rosa looking for a piledriver or power bomb of some type. She hoists her up but Rosa counters into a crucifix bomb. She then picks Martinez up and hits her finisher on the chairs for the pin fall victory.

Winner: Thunder Rosa

Britt Baker, Jamie Hayter & Rebel Beat Rosa & Martinez Down

Once the match wraps up, we see Britt Baker, Jamie Hayter and Rebel come to the ring after Rosa tries showing Martinez respect with a handshake. The trio beats down Rosa and Martinez and leave them laying to end the post-match segment.

Jay White Vignette

A Jay White vignette airs to promote an announced match for this week’s edition of AEW Rampage. After that we hear the commentators run down some more matches for Rampage, as well as next Wednesday’s Dynamite, before we head back to another break.

House Of Black Vignette

A video package is then shown about the House Of Black with Malakai explaining violence. Brody asks who they are waiting for as someone knocks on the door. Black says history.

TNT Championship
Darby Allin vs. Sammy Guevara (C)

We return from the break to the familiar sounds of Darby Allin’s theme. He makes his way out and gets some word of encouragement from Sting before heading to the ring. He settles in the ring and his music dies down.

Now the theme for the champ plays as TNT title-holder Sammy Guevara makes his way out and heads to the ring for our main event of the evening. This has big-fight feel written all over it.

Things get off to a fast start as these two are going at it and flying all over the place. We see Guevara start to take over as we pause momentarily for a mid-match commercial break as the action continues in this, our main event of the evening.

We’re back from the break and as soon as we return, Darby catches Guevara with a big move that shifts the offensive momentum into his favor. He hangs Guevara upside down in the tree of woe in the corner and climbs up after him.

Darby locks Sammy in a single-leg crab in this position but Guevara gets free and hooks Darby for an absolutely insane Spanish Fly off the top-rope. That looked unbelievable. Guevara sells his leg upon landing and then goes for the cover. Darby kicks out and Sammy goes right back to clutching his leg.

The fans break out in a split chant, with half of the crowd chanting Sammy Guevara’s name and the other half chanting Darby Allin’s. Allin approaches Guevara but Sammy blasts him with a knee. Darby leaps off the middle rope seconds later and ends up locking Sammy in a figure-four leg lock.

Allin cranks back on the hold as Guevara yells out in pain. Darby continues to apply pressure to the already weakened knee of the champ. Guevara fires up while in the hold and smacks Darby. Darby smacks him back and then the hold is released. Guevara runs at Darby looking for a knee strike but misses and smashes his hurt knee into the corner.

He goes for the GTH out of nowhere but Darby avoids it and turns Sammy inside-out. He follows that up by coming over the top for a stunner. The momentum sends Sammy out to the floor and Darby follows him out by diving through the ropes for a big splash. Sammy fights back into the lead on the floor and then lays Darby on the ring apron.

Guevara signals to the camera that he is crazy before climbing to the top and going for a wild senton splash that misses. Back in the ring we see Jose The Assistant try and distract Darby as he climbs to the top looking for his Coffin Drop. The ref breaks things up as Sting beats down Jose. While this is going on the ref is tied up with it and Andrade arrives on the scene and blasts Darby. This leaves Darby laid out. Sammy recovers and picks Darby up and blasts him with a GTH. He goes for the cover and gets the three count to retain his title.

Winner and STILL TNT Champion: Sammy Guevara

After The Match: Andrade & Matt Hardy Cause Chaos

After the match, Matt Hardy hits the ring and starts firing away at a lifeless Darby Allin and Sammy Guevara with punches. Andrade comes out and steals the TNT titles. Sting runs them off.

The show goes off the air with Andrade hoisting the TNT titles up in the air as Matt Hardy stands at his side. We see Sting staring them down from the ring while Guevara and Allin are laid out. That’s how this one ends, folks.
