AEW Dynamite and Rampage Results for March 20, 2024



CONTAINS SPOILERS


Tonight’s double header episode of AEW DYNAMITE & AEW RAMPAGE was broadcast live from the Coca-Cola Coliseum in Toronto, ON!


Excalibur, Tony Schiavone and “The Human Suplex Machine” Taz were the broadcast team for tonight’s event.


It’s Wednesday night and you know what that means!


Tony Schiavone kicked off the show in the ring to interview “The CEO” Mercedes Moné!


The fans chanted “CEO! CEO! CEO!”


Mercedes: “Toronto, please say hello to your new CEO. I am still on such a high since last week at Big Business. I missed you guys. I missed all of this! I am so excited to be her in AEW. A lot of you guys don’t know this, but all of this almost got taken away from me 10 months ago. I almost had a career ending injury in a match against Willow Nightingale. 


“I know this is in the past and I’m in a new home of AEW. A lot of people may not know who Mercedes Moné is, so I asked the production truck to play a highlight video so you can get a taste of your new CEO.


“As you see, I was rocking and rolling, I was kicking butt all over the world but then it got taken away from me. But I knew I needed to be back, and I needed to be here. Minor setbacks make for major comebacks and now I’m here as your CEO. I am not here to lead a women’s evolution. I’ve done that before. I am here to lead a women’s global revolution. I can here to face the very best women in AEW and all over the globe. 


“About last week when Julia Hart and Skye Blue attacked Willow, they must not have heard that I have unfinished business with Willow. And anybody that messes with my business will get bankrupt. There’s a price you pay when you mess with Mercedes Moné.”


The arena lights went dark!


The lights came back on, and Julia Hart was standing in the aisle, smirking at Mercedes. Skye Blue tried to ambush Mercedes, but Mercedes dropped Blue! Julie Hart jumped in, and Mercedes hoisted up Julia for the Money Maker, but Skye Blue pulled Julia to safety!


Skye Blue and Julia Hart pulled steel chairs out from beneath the ring. They were about to enter the ring to attack Mercedes with the chairs, but Willow Nightingale and Kris Statlander sprinted to the ring with chairs of their own, coming to the aid of Mercedes!


The lights went dark again! When they came back on, Willow had a chair, and it appeared she was set to whack Mercedes with it, but she put it down.


“I think she was going to hit Mercedes with it,” said Schiavone. 


Mercedes pointed at Willow and said she had her eyes on her.


AEW Continental Championship Match!

“Mad King” Eddie Kingston (c.) vs. Kazuchika Okada!


“The world is ready for this one,” said Tony Schiavone. 


Kingston hit Okada with a flurry of offense, and then blistered the challenger with chops. Okada hammered back with an elbow to the back of Kingston’s head. Okada spiked Kingston with a DDT on the arena floor!


Matthew and Nicholas Jackson were watching backstage, wearing headsets and producing the match. 


Okada nailed Kingston with a neck breaker. Okada followed up with a dropkick to the side of Kingston’s head. Kingston fired back with a double over hook suplex and then a back heel trip. Kingston blasted Okada with machine gun chops in the corner. Kingston rocked Okada with a German suplex and then a sliding forearm. Okada rallied back with a dropkick.


Eddie stunned Okada with a spinning back fist for a near fall. Okada attempted to hit the Rainmaker, but Kingston got his arms up to block it. Okada gouged Kingston’s eyes. Okada planted Kingston on the mat and rocked Eddie with the Rainmaker, scoring the pin!


New AEW Continental Champions… “The Rainmaker” Kazuchika Okada!


“History was made here tonight,” said Taz.


“Okada wasting no time,” replied Excalibur.


“The Bastard” Pac’s music hit! Pac walked onto the ramp and stared a hole into Okada, making his presence known to the Rainmaker!


Renee Paquette was backstage to interview Swerve Strickland!


Renee said that Swerve went after AEW World Champion Samoa Joe, and wanted to know what his intentions were.


Swerve: “The AEW World Championship, Renee. Samoa Joe attempted to embarrass me by choking me out. Unfortunately for him I have a history of choking people out myself. I want to fight so I’m going to offer an open challenge tonight.”


Next Renee Paquette interviewed Kris Statlander and Willow Nightingale ahead of tonight’s street fight!


Mercedes Moné walked onto the scene and interrupted them. 


Kris: “You know, I’ve been meaning to say this. Thank you for having Willow’s back last week.”


Mercedes: “Of course. That’s what a CEO does. You see, a CEO stands up for what she believes in. And I’m excited to watch your street fight tonight. Because you know what they say: payback’s a bitch. And thanks for having my back out there tonight, Kris. It was nice meeting you.”

Willow: “Mercedes, I just wanted to say—”


Mercedes: “You’ve done enough!”


“Lionheart” Chris Jericho vs. FTW Champion HOOK!


Hook dumped Jericho on the back of his head with a T-bone suplex right out of the gates!


“I don’t think Jericho expected that,” said Schiavone.


Hook battered Jericho in the corner. Jericho fired back with chops. Hook sent Jericho for a ride once again with another T-bone suplex. Hook dodged Jericho and planted Jericho with two more suplexes. Hook folded Jericho in half with another suplex!


“We are witnessing a lopsided affair. Hook is dominating Chris Jericho,” said Excalibur.


Jericho booted Hook in the face and rammed Hook with a shoulder block. Jericho jumped off the top turnbuckle, but Hook caught him and suplexed him. Jericho tried to rally back with a lionsault for a near fall.


Hook charged at Jericho, but Jericho countered by throwing Hook. Jericho put Hook on the top turnbuckle, looking for a top rope hurracanrana, but Hook managed to apply the Red Rum on Jericho! Chris Jericho broke the grip and was looking for the Walls, but Hook countered by rolling up Jericho and pinning Jericho!


“What an inside cradle out of nowhere!” said Taz.


“That might be the biggest victory of Hook’s career thus far. Hook just pinned the first ever AEW World Champion,” said Excalibur.


Jericho fist bumped Hook after the match, both men displaying mutual respect for one another.


We heard from the Undisputed Kingdom’s Adam Cole!


Cole: “I hate the feeling of being disappointed. Last week Wardlow you disappointed me. You challenged Samoa Joe for the AEW World Championship, and you failed. Wardlow, you had one damn job and you failed. And right now, I should be—you should be—the AEW World Champion. 


“Instead, you have a new goal and that’s to make sure the Undisputed Kingdom hangs onto the gold that we have. You’re going to make sure that Taven and Bennett keep those Ring of Honor World Tag Team titles. You are going to make sure that Roderick Strong keeps the AEW International Championship. And then maybe we’ll forgive you.


“Wardlow I’m not saying this out of anger. I’m saying this because I care about you. I want what’s best for you. I want you to reach your true potential. So don’t screw it up.”


Renee Paquette interviewed Chris Jericho backstage!


Jericho: “Last week I said I wanted to face Hook one on one for a reason. I was hoping he did what he did tonight. Hook, you showed me something I haven’t seen in a long time. You are a future World Champion. You are every bit of a bad, bad man as everyone says you are. And after tonight you’ve got my respect. And next week, Hook, on Dynamite, I’ve got a proposition for you.”


Tony Schiavone interviewed “The Aerial Assassin” Will Ospreay in the ring!


Ospreay: “I’ll clear the air right now. Last time I was here I was a little bit of a naughty boy. I’ve changed. I’m here for the betterment of AEW. I am here to give you guys Elite levels of professional wrestling. 


“I said what I wanted to say about Bryan Danielson until I saw Collision. I hope all the lads studied his match against Shibata on Collision. That was pro wrestling. Bryan in one breath you said you were grateful to be stepping into the ring with me, but in the other breath you said I couldn’t walk in your shoes.


“Maybe he’s right because when I would go over to Japan, I’d see his shoes and there’s no way I could fit into them, because they’re too small for me. What I did in Japan was elevate professional wrestling. But apparently, I can’t walk in your shoes? Want me to prove it? All right, Shibata, long time no see. Seven years ago, I wrestled Shibata and he beat the piss out of me. But the 23-year old me is different than the 30-year old me because I’ve got a point to prove. So next week on Dynamite, Shibata, meet me in this ring. Danielson, sit home and watch and let me show you what I’m all about.”


AEW Women’s World Champion “Timeless” Toni Storm & Mariah May

vs.

“The Virtuosa” Deonna Purrazzo & Thunder Rosa!


Deonna and Thunder Rosa sprinted toward the ring and took the attack to Toni and Mariah, swarming them. Mariah grabbed Deonna by the hair and yanked her to the mat. Mariah followed up with a dropkick. 


Deonna turned the tables with a double clothesline to Toni and Mariah. Thunder Rosa grabbed a tag and launched off the bag of Deonna to splash Toni in the corner with a lariat. Thunder Rosa followed up with a running lariat. Luther tried to take a swipe at Thunder Rosa. As Thunder Rosa was distracted by Luther, Toni Storm knocked Rosa to the floor with a running hip attack!


Deonna grabbed a tag and punted Mariah in the face with a pump kick. Thunder Rosa tagged herself in and Deonna didn’t seem happy about it. Thunder Rosa drilled Mariah with a Death Valley Driver in the center of the ring! Toni Storm grabbed Thunder Rosa from behind and nailed Rosa with a German Suplex!


Toni Storm cracked Thunder Rosa in the corner with a hip attack! Toni tried for a piledriver, but Thunder Rosa countered with a jackknife pin and scored the victory!


Swerve Strickland (with Prince Nana) vs. The Butcher!


Swerve headbutted Butcher, catching Butcher by surprise. Swerve booted Butcher in the face. Butcher blasted Swerve with a strike to the face. Swerve double stomped Butcher on the back. 


Swerve rocked Butcher with the House Call kick! Swerve crunched Butcher with the Swerve Stomp right on target. Swerve applied a submission hold and forced Butcher to tap!


“That may be Swerve’s first submission victory in an AEW ring,” said Excalibur.


Swerve: “Samoa Joe before I met you, I had nothing but respect for you. But then when I got to know you, I felt a little indifferent. Then after awhile I started disliking you. And now I’m getting close to hating you. And as I stand with this chain in my possession, every day I think about wrapping it around your neck and hanging it from the post, but I don’t have enough chain for that big ass neck.


“Every week you’re going to keep sending security to watch your back. Every week I’m going to take them out until you give me what I want!”


AEW World Champion Samoa Joe walked down to the ring!


Samoa Joe: “Well what to do with someone like you, Swerve. Logic should dictate that I ignore you completely because contrary to what you believe, I beat you at Revolution and you’ve been shoved down the championship ladder. 


“You still believe that the impossible is possible. You still believe that if you stand toe to toe with me that you can box with a god. And the problem with that belief is it becomes infections. And then all these people believe they can be great too. And that’s all find and dandy until someone like me shows up and smashes you in the face and takes everything you have. And it was at that realization that I knew exactly what to do with someone like you. And that is to give you exactly what you want!”


Don Callis: “Whoa, whoa, whoa guys. It strikes me, Swerve, that I guess when you’re in Swerve’s House, you can just put yourself in a World title match. And Swerve, it strikes me that you and Takeshita have the same amount of wins. The difference is Takeshita is undefeated outside the Don Callis Family. So, Swerve I’m thinking maybe Takeshita needs to show you what it tastes like to lose to the family. 


“And if you’re feeling good about that Swerve, I’m happy to teach you a lesson that I’ve taught many people. This is not Swerve’s House. This is the Don Callis House!”


Swerve: “If I had more time and I wasn’t distracted by what I’ve got going on, I’d burn the Don Callis Family Tree down to a crisp. But you know what? I accept. I will take on Takeshita. And when I’m done with him, I’m coming for you again Joe.”


Excalibur: “I’ve been informed that next week on Dynamite, it is official: Konosuke Takeshita against Swerve Strickland!”


TNT Championship I Quit Match!

“The Patriarch” Christian Cage (c.) vs. “Rated R Superstar” Adam Copeland!

Copeland propped a ladder across the guardrail and the announcers’ desk. Copeland pulled Christian down hard on the ladder!

Christian grabbed a barb wire wrapped chair from beneath the ring. Christian set Copeland’s head across one chair and tried for the con-chair-to with the barb wire chair, but Copeland moved out of the way in the nick of time!


Copeland hit Christian with the hockey stick across the face. Copeland pulled the drawstring from his pants and wrapped it around Christian’s throat, pulling back. Killswitch and Nick Wayne jumped into the ring and began to stomp Copeland!


Mother Wayne entered the ring and slapped Copeland as Nick Wayne and Killswitch held him back. Matt Menard and Daniel Garcia ran to the ring and cleaned house of Nick Wayne and Killswitch, evening the odds for Copeland!


Copeland climbed the ladder and splashed Killswitch and Nick Wayne outside the ring! Garcia had handcuffs. Garcia and Menard handcuffed Killswitch to the ropes while Copeland handcuffed Nick Wayne in the opposite corner. Mother Wayne retreated from the ring!

Trios Champs The Acclaimed walked onto the ramp!


Caster said Billy Gunn wasn’t cleared to travel after what happened to him last week at the hands of Jay White. Caster offered Jay White a one-way first class ticket to anywhere he wanted to go, as long as it wasn’t here. But he knows Jay White is too stupid to take him up on that offer. “When you bring your stupid ass back here with your ass boys, we’ll be here to hunt you down.”
