AEW Dynamite “New Year’s Smash” 2022 Results – We are live from the 1stBank Center in Broomfield, CO. where Excalibur, Tony Schiavone and Taz settle in on commentary and then send things down to the ring for a big opening contest.

Bryan Danielson vs. “All Ego” Ethan Page

Bryan Danielson’s theme hits and “The American Dragon” heads to the ring to an enormous pop from the fans in attendance. He settles inside the ring and his music dies down.

Now the entrance tune for “All Ego” Ethan Page plays and out he comes accompanied by Stokely Hathaway for this one-on-one showdown to kick off the New Years Smash episode of Dynamite.

Before the bell sounds, however, the familiar sounds of MJF’s theme hits and the AEW World Champion appears in a luxary box with his title, some champagne and “the only hot chick in Colorado.” He taunts Danielson as Page beats on him from the ring.

Page also shouts insults up to MJF, whom the crowd focuses a loud “Assh*le” chant at as “All Ego” beats down “The American Dragon” here in the early goings of this opening contest.

Danielson fires back though with a big few chops and kicks in the corner, but All-Ego instantly responds with a chop of his own. A knee to the mid-section drops his opponent, and he follows it up by manipulating the ankle as he then stamps him back to the mat and then onto the Achilles of Page as an angry Stokely Hathaway looks on. 

Page responds well though with a power slam as he slows the pace, but he gets sent back down from the top turnbuckle with a headbutt as Danielson follows it with a missile dropkick, which leads to Hathaway getting onto the apron. He flicks off his hat as Page charges in, almost hitting his manager and a knee strike from Danielson then sends him to the floor as he follows up with a suicide dive. 

However, once again Hathaway distracts Danielson, and that allows Page to nail a pump kick which sends Danielson back to the floor, following it by sending him into the ring post. Page goes for a rake of the eyes, but after Danielson trips him into the corner and that allows more kicks from Danielson who follows with a hurricanrana from the top rope. He tries to follow it by diving off the ring apron but Hathaway saves his client and that allows Page to launch him into the steel stairs.

All-Ego then dives back in with a cutter, but Danielson can kick out. However, once again Danielson counters Page’s plans and plants him head-first, following it with a huge strike to the head. That only gets a near fall but Danielson follows it with the LeBell Lock, only for Page to get to the ropes with his foot. Page blocks the top rope attempt from Danielson and aims for an Ego’s Edge, yet Danielson once again counters and reigns down with elbow strikes only for Page to power him up to connect with an Avalanche Power Slam, which Danielson kicks out of!

Page once again looks for his finisher, but he spends too long smiling and Danielson charges in with a Busaiko Knee, following it with stomps and the LeBell Lock for victory. 

Winner: Bryan Danielson

Once the match wraps up, we see Bryan Danielson immediately turn his attention to AEW World Champion MJF, who is shown still in the luxury box reacting to him. MJF turns down his wave to join him in the ring for an impromptu fight.

Samoa Joe Attacks Wardlow

We see a quick word from Samoa Joe in a video package featuring “The King of TV.” We then return live where Renee Paquette is in the interview zone with Wardlow.

As he talks about there being too many words and not enough action, in comes Joe, who beats Wardlow down with a pipe. He yells “how’s that for action?! I did this to you!” He roars and officials run to the scene as he walks away and we head to another commercial break.

“Hangman” Adam Page Checked On By Doctors

We shoot backstage where Renee Paquette steps in between members of The Dark Order to try and get a word with a doctor shown checking on the condition of “Hangman” Adam Page.

Page snaps at her and then brings up Jon Moxley being in the next match, which gets Page to pop up and lose his cool. The doctor says two weeks until he can get back in the ring. He says if he keeps getting riled up, and things might not go that way. Page says okay.

Jon Moxley & Claudio Castagnoli vs. Top Flight

Top Flight immediately attacks their opponents, but the Blackpool Combat Club members get the best of the situation outside the ring to take firm control immediately. Jon Moxley takes Darius Martin into the ring and isolates him as Claudio Castagnoli tags in to hit some uppercuts and a stomp as he then brings his partner back into things. The duo make frequent tags as Castagnoli slams him to the mat. 

Moxley returns and hits a big knee to the face, but Darius fights back and hits a missile dropkick as Dante Martin then comes in with a diving crossbody, with Castagnoli eating an enziguri for trying to get involved. A standing moonsault press is hit on Moxley and the two then go back and forth with the former World Champion coming out on top with a suplex and then the elbow strikes. 

Top Flight works together to attack the knee of Moxley as Darius then runs up the back of his brother to dropkick Moxley to the floor, following it by launching Moxley into the guard rail. The brothers continue to isolate Moxley as Dante launches himself over the top rope to drop down on him with force. Darius returns to the ring and continues focusing on the knee, kicking Moxley’s leg away from underneath him. 

Despite that, he’s able to tag in Castagnoli who drops Dante straight away, following it up with running European uppercuts into each corner. He then looks for the Giant Swing but Darius makes the save only to be put into the move himself as Dante then leapfrogs him before almost catching the ROH World Champion with a roll-up, yet he then gets thrown into a DDT, gaining Top Flight a near fall. 

Castagnoli showcases his strength with a double suplex to both Martin’s, yet they respond with a combination offense which requires Moxley to make the save. Dante manages to launch out of the ring to wipe him out though, and Darius then almost gets the win. He gets distracted by Moxley, but he reverses an uppercut attempt with a backslide, yet that is met with the Neutralizer…only for Darius to kick out!

Castagnoli comes in with the elbows, and while Dante tries to save him, Moxley stops it with a King Kong Lariat as Darius just gets beaten down with elbows until Castagnoli has enough and nails him with another big strike to provide the final blow with a huge uppercut after taking his mouthguard out. 

Winners: Claudio Castagnoli & Jon Moxley

His music dies down and then his opponent, who is already in the ring, Baylum Lynx, is introduced. The bell sounds and we’re off-and-running with this one. Hook rag-dolls the newcomer around and slaps on his Red Rum finisher for the easy submission win.

Winner and STILL FTW Champion: Hook

After the match, Hook is celebrating his win when Stokely Hathaway comes out with Big Bill and Lee Moriarty. They threaten Hook as they come to the ring but Jungle Boy Jack Perry comes out to make the save.

Big Bill is in the ring with Hook and the two stand face-to-face, with over a foot in size separating them. Jungle Boy has Moriarty down in the aisle so things are even. Hook goes for a t-bone on Big Bill, but Big Bill fights it off. Big Bill goes to hoist Hook up but Jungle Boy hits the ring with a giant piece of wood like Hacksaw Jim Duggan.

Willow Nightingale tries to get hold of Tay Melo but she avoids it and then shimmies and twerks, but Nightingale eventually gets her hands on Melow, throwing her to the mat and then twerking herself. However, as she looks to get going Ruby Soho tags herself in, only for Melo to run and make a tag for Anna Jay, who gets slammed to the mat as Soho fires down with several punches. 

Nightingale comes to slam Jay and she then works with Soho, throwing her down onto Jay for further damage before she charges into the JAS star in the corner.

She drives Melo face-first into the second turnbuckle pad, and while she chases Jay around the ring to eventually slam her on the mat, she is almost caught out by Melo.

Melo and Nightingale go for some combination offense, but Jay saves the match and then throws Nightingale out which creates a two-on-one situation as Soho gets spiked on her head, only for Nightingale to charge Jay into them to stop the pin.

TNT Championship
Samoa Joe (C) vs. Wardlow

The commentators debate among themselves the condition of the challenger, Wardlow, following the attack from Joe with the lead pipe earlier in the show this evening.

Before the match, Samoa Joe says that Wardlow is suffering from stage fright and he won’t be out here tonight, but as he says that Wardlow appears and fights through security and referees to reach the ring. He does so and immediately starts brawling against Joe, charging into him in the corner of the ring. He showcases his power by nailing a Spinebuster and then a flurry of strikes to the champion.

He continues the attack, driving Joe into the second rope before charging at him in the corner, but Joe sits him own by planting Wardlow to the mat. However, the challenger fires back with a big clothesline, despite that Joe responds with a knee breaker, which sends the challenger out of the ring as the champion boasts about it inside. Wardlow once again fights off the medical team to get back into the ring, but Joe attacks it immediately, twisting the injured area on the second rope as Wardlow yet again falls to the floor. 

Wardlow beats the 10 count, but walks straight into further attacks from Joe, who takes his time beating him down. Joe props him up on the top turnbuckle, hitting several jabs and chops before climbing up, but Wardlow fights him down and then connects with a Senton! He continues the attack with several suplexes and then a major Whisper in the Wind, despite his leg injury, which Joe only just kicks out from afterward!

Joe then runs into a headbutt and the big lariat, but the champion kicks out once more. However, yet again Joe targets the lower legs of Wardlw, sweeping him back down to the mat as he then boots his chest and follows with some chops. Joe tries to climb up the turnbuckles to get more height, but that allows Wardlow to lift him up to hit a Powerbomb, but as he goes for one more his knee buckles. 

Joe then charges in with a chop block, and he follows it with the Coquina Clutch and Wardlow fades out. 

Winner (and still TNT Champion): Samoa Joe

After the match, Joe appears to show respect to his opponent, but instead, he blasts him with the titles. He pulls out some scissors, and as the official tries to stop him Joe headbutts him and then chops the ponytail from Wardlow’s hair before kneeing him back down to the mat, showing zero respect. However, this leads to the music of Darby Allin, and he pops up from behind to nail Joe a skateboard strike across the spine.
