AEW Dynamite Results (3/09) Estero, FL – We are live from the Hertz Arena in Estero, Florida, as Chris Jericho makes his way to the ring to start the show.
Jericho says that last Sunday was one of the best nights of his career, even though he lost. He thinks it is one of the best matches of his career, and arguably the best of his AEW run. He thanks Eddie Kingston, claiming he brought out a side of him he thought was gone.
Jericho says he didn’t live up to his word after the match, and his word is everything. Chris says he was frustrated as the fans chant, ‘shake his hand.’ Chris says Eddie deserves his respect, and he has got it. So he calls out Kingston so he can shake his hand. He makes his way down, and tells people they’re going to get real deep.
Kingston says the Friday night before the biggest match of his career, he didn’t want to show up. He wanted to go out drinking as Jericho got in his head. A fan tries to, ‘what,’ chant him, but he tells them to show some respect as Steve Austin isn’t here. Eddie says four people told him that they didn’t commit suicide because of him, and that’s why he showed up.
After the match, he went to his hotel room and cried, because he wanted to make those people from the fan fest proud. Eddie gets emotional and says he hopes he did that. Kingston tells Jericho the handshake wasn’t for him, the handshake was for Jericho. It sounds like a Chris Jericho problem.
Eddie says he dragged out the man who he looked up to in Japan, that was him showing respect. He says Jericho proved he’s still the man, and still number one. But Kingston questions if that’s enough to fill the hole where he doesn’t want to show respect to young guys. Jericho says everything Eddie just said was right.
Jericho tells Eddie he has his undying respect. He thanks him for giving him respect, and he offers to shake his hand. The two men then do that, and then 2point0 and Daniel Garcia make their way out and start jumping the two guys. However, Santana and Ortiz then hit the ring and clear house. They keep hold of Garcia, but Jericho then cracks Ortiz and Santana with the bat!
Jericho is working alongside 2point0 and Garcia. Jake Hager then comes down and screams at Jericho. He questions what he is doing, but then the big man blasts his Santana and Ortiz as well, sticking with Chris. Jericho smashes Kingston over the head with the baseball bat, and then Hager powerbomb him from the ring apron through a table on the floor.
Jericho then gets on the microphone and he tells us that this is the Jericho Appreciation Society…and that’s entertainment.
– CM Punk is then shown being interviewed after the dog collar match, as footage from the encounter is displayed. He says he’ll be digging dried blood for weeks. But that CM Punk is dead… long live CM Punk.
AEW World Championship
“Hangman” Adam Page (C) vs. Dante Martin
The two men shake hands to start things, and then Hangman Page uses his strength to drop his challenger with a few shoulder tackles. But Dante Martin picks up the pace and rocks the champion with a dropkick and then a few chops. Hangman responds by springboarding and hitting a lariat, sending Martin outside.
He then launches himself over the top rope to take Dante down once more. The champion then unloads some chops of his own inside the ring, and while Martin hits a few himself, Page then explodes with a lariat in the corner, which he follows up with a huge clothesline, dropping Dante to the mat.
Dante then tries to leap over the champion, but he catches him and hits the Death Valley Driver, but Martin kicks out. The young wrestler continues to fight back though, sending Hangman out of the ring, as he follows up with a moonsault from the top turnbuckle to the outside. Martin then looks for a dropkick from the top turnbuckle, but Page catches him in mid-air to turn it into a powerbomb, but the challenger kicks out again.
Martin then sends the champion out of the ring once again. He looks to springboard to the outside, but Page pushes him back into the ring. Immediately, Hangman launches himself in with the Buckshot Lariat to defend the title.
Winner (and still champion): Hangman Page
After the match, Tony Schiavone hits the ring to interview the champion. However, Page tells Dante to get his ass back in the ring. He tells him that Martin was put in a tough spot last year when his brother was injured. He pushed himself all the way to the World Title, and Page says while he will be going for the tag titles, if he makes it back here, he’d love to do it again.
Adam Cole then appears, telling him to shut his mouth. At Revolution, he proved Page wasn’t untouchable. Cole congratulates Page for a fluke victory, he says anybody can get lucky once, and the next time that won’t happen. Cole challenges Page to a six-man match next week, and he has two specific young men in mind, who know Page very well.
Cole says he will make Hangman’s life living hell, and he will not stop until he gets what he wants, and what he deserves. He won’t stop until he hears, ‘and new AEW World Champion.’
Bryan Danielson & Jon Moxley (w/ William Regal) vs. The Workhorsemen
Immediately Jon Moxley takes the fight to JD Drake, attacking him in the corner and launching him across the mat. Bryan Danielson then tags in and unloads a series of strikes, dropping down the bigger man. However, he is able to power Bryan into his corner and Anthony Henry tags in and unloads several kicks of his own.
However, it doesn’t last long until Bryan turns things around with kicks of his own, and Moxley then stomps a mudhole into him in the corner. Bryan comes back in with chops and kicks, locking in the surfboard submission, as Jon tags in and then bites his face before chopping him down.
Jon throws him up in the air, turning Henry inside out, but that only gets a one count. Henry rights back in the corner and comes in with a missile dropkick. Drake tags in and starts throwing slaps to Moxley, but he gets dropped with a lariat. Moxley then brings in Bryan, launching himself out with a tope suicida. Meanwhile, inside the ring, Bryan hits the running knees and then the Label Lock for the win.
Winners: Bryan Danielson & Jon Moxley
After the match, William Regal tells Tony Schiavone he didn’t think they’d be doing this again, 29 years after they first work together. Regal says he has made his own life hard, both in the ring and in his life. He knows he’s not long for this life due to too many empty bottles, and broken hearts.
Regal then gets emotional, and he thanks Tony for helping him in the past. William then snaps out of it and says he is no longer required from his old job, and he checked out of his old job. But then someone told him Bryan Danielson mentioned him on AEW Dynamite. It got him interested, he went to watch and he found out that he’d be fighting Jon Moxley.
Regal says the reason people know him now, is because of Bryan, as his name was always mentioned alongside of him. Regal says if someone wants to work hard, he will make them a better wrestler. The first thing he will do, is sit them down and tell them not what to do. Regal says Bryan is what he should have been, as he’s a perfect wrestler.
Regal says there was a time when they’d train with a group of wrestlers, but he and Bryan would stay and keep working. Regal sent him places and Bryan became the wrestler he should have been, because he doesn’t have the problems Regal did. William said he had seen enough on Sunday, as what better could this younger generation have than these two men.
Regal says that is why the team is together. He warns anyone who steps in the ring with them, they will not like the outcome. You’ll step up, or get stepped on.

A.H.F.O. Board Meeting — Jeff Hardy Makes AEW Debut
We head to the ring where the A.H.F.O. is all standing around. Matt Hardy talks first about how Andrade El Idolo wants to fire him. He says every time he wears a suit he turns to an assh*le. He says Andrade should know what that’s about.
Andrade then responds and talks about how it’s time to handle their business. Hardy says let’s get this over with and get a vote. He says he knows that his boys Private Party aren’t going to vote him out.
They do the vote and initially Private Party votes for Hardy, but when he turns around they put their thumbs down. Andrade tells him in this business you always have to have someone watching your back.
This leads to Private Party, The Butcher, The Blade & Andrade El Idolo all beating down Hardy together.
As the beatdown continues, we hear some music and finally out comes Darby Allin and Sting. The numbers game ends up being too much for them as well and as all three are being beat down, we hear the familiar sounds of Jeff Hardy’s theme.
The crowd ERUPTS as Jeff Hardy emerges from the back and heads to the ring. “The Charismatic Enigma” ends up taking them all out by himself. The fans go nuts with “Hardy! Hardy!” chants.
Hardy heads to the top and “The Strange Enigma,” as J.R. refers to him on commentary, comes flying off with his trademark swanton bomb. He hugs Matt and the duo stand across from Darby Allin and Sting and look at each other as Jeff’s music plays again.
Tony Nese Confronts Shane “Sw3rve” Strickland
We shoot backstage where Tony Schiavone is standing by with another newcomer to AEW — Shane “Sw3rve” Strickland.
He talks about making his debut in AEW at Revolution. Before he can say much of anything else, up walks Tony Nese to interrupt him. Nese challenges him to a match at Rampage later this week.

Wardlow Says He’s Done With MJF & The Pinnacle, Wants Out Of His Contract
When we return from the break, Tony Schiavone is standing in the ring and he says it’s time to welcome “The Face of the Revolution.”
On that note, the winner of the Face of the Revolution ladder match at AEW Revolution this past Sunday night — Wardlow — makes his way out.
Wardlow heads to the ring as Excalibur talks about his impressive and impactful showing at the PPV over the weekend, noting he won the aforementioned ladder match and also played a big factor in the Dog Collar match by “misplacing” the Dynamite Diamond Ring, which is what led to CM Punk beating MJF.
Schiavone brings up the finish of the Dog Collar match and then mentions how he is still signed to a contract with MJF.
Wardlow talks about how he spent the first years of his career in AEW helping someone else achieve his dreams — referring to MJF. He then says it’s time to achieve his own. He says he grew up poor and watched his mother, who has a heart of gold, struggle to help raise himself and his sisters.
He goes on to mention how that’s what drove him in the wrestling business. He says MJF was his way of getting his foot in the door in AEW. He says MJF did pay him a lot of money and helped him get established in AEW.
He says none of that, however, gives him the right to disrespect him or threaten their family. He says it sure as hell doesn’t give him the right to put your hands on them.
He says when MJF smacked him he set his fate. He says at Revolution his actions in the Dog Collar match were to let MJF and everyone else know he’s no longer watching his back. He says he’s no longer part of The Pinnacle and he claims he is finally free.
Wardlow talks about how he wants out of his b.s. contract with MJF. He makes his goal clear — he wants the TNT Championship. He says AEW is now officially “Wardlow’s World.” His music hits again to end the segment.
Keith Lee Wants Nothing To Do With QT Marshall
We shoot backstage where Alex Marvez is standing by with Keith Lee and QT Marshall. Marshall tells Keith Lee that he sees why they call him “Limitless.”
Marshall goes on to mention he helped train Hook and then says he’s aware of Lee’s issues with Powerhouse Hobbs and Ricky Starks.
Marshall tells Lee he and The Factory have his back. Lee says he’s got a big enough back and assures him he’s fine on his own. He walks off as Marshall yells that he’ll pay for this.
AEW World Tag-Team Championships
Jurassic Express (C) vs. The Acclaimed

The Acclaimed regain control and work well with some double teams as Caster then drops Jungle Boy with a shoulder tackle. Anthony Bowens charges in with a splash in the corner and then attacks Luchasuarus to stop a possible tag. He keeps Jungle Boy isolated, but the champions respond with a great forearm strike.
Caster tries to stop a tag but it doesn’t work and Luchasaurus takes out both men, charging back and forth between the turnbuckles, following it with a double clothesline.
