AEW DYNAMITE Results 10/09/2019
October 9, 2019, ALL ELITE WRESTLING (AEW) made its debut in Boston, MA, from the sold-out Agganis Arena with the second episode of ALL ELITE WRESTLING DYNAMITE on the TNT Network!
Tony Schiavone, Excalibur, and Jim Ross were the broadcast team for tonight’s event.
Round One of the AEW World Tag Team Championship Tournament began tonight and kicked off the show. Nick and Matt Jackson of The Young Bucks faced the team of Private Party, Isiah Kassidy and Marq Quen. This was an east coast versus west coast tag battle, with Private Party hailing from Brooklyn and the Bucks from Rancho Cucamonga, California. The Bucks’ experience was in full effect with Matt and Nick making multiple quick tags in and out of the ring. Marq Quen quickly cleaned house with a 450 splash, among other high-flying tactics. Neither team played defense here. Matt Jackson power bombed Isiah Kassidy onto the steel ramp, setting up a power-bomb Sliced Bread #2 on Marq Quen. The arena erupted in “This is awesome!” chants! Matt Jackson began taunting Private Party, yelling, “What d’ya got?!” The irony here is The Young Bucks were instrumental in recruiting Private Party for the AEW tag team division, and here they were, giving the Bucks a run for their money. Matt Jackson speared Marq Quen for a near-fall. Marq Quen was able to tag in Kassidy, who hit a double hurracarana on the Bucks. Private Party attempted to hit the “Silly String” sequence on Matt, who blocked it and hit a double suplex. The tandem offense on display from the Bucks here was extraordinary. Nick hit a fierce facebuster and a back flip on Marq Quen to the outside. The fans started chanting “Fight forever!” Private Party hit Gin & Juice on the Bucks, and then Marq Quen hit a shooting star press on Matt Jackson, who kicked out at two! The Bucks attempted a Meltzer Driver and in an upset of the ages and a career-defining performance, Private Party had the Bucks’ famous finishing move scouted and defeated the Jacksons via pinfall!
AEW World Champion Chris Jericho was out next, leading the gang of Jake Hager, Sammy Guevara, Santana and Ortiz into the ring. Jericho said last week’s record-breaking debut of DYNAMITE was all thanks to him. Jericho said Sammy looked like a “Spanish God.” Santana and Ortiz “are psychos,” and Jericho said he personally recruited them. “Viva La Raza!” said a smirking Jericho. Last up, Jericho showed off Jake Hager. The crowd chanted “We the People!” Jericho interrupted the crowd’s chants and said, “‘We the People’ sucks and it’s dead and buried. It was a stupid idea from bad creative and all that’s gone. Jake Hager is the most feared MMA fighter on the planet today. He’s undefeated and that’s a shoot!” Jericho called this his “inner circle.” Jericho said he didn’t like Cody or Cody’s family. Jericho continued, “On November 9th at FULL GEAR on pay-per-view, I am going to beat the ever-living shit out of you, Cody. We are THE INNER CIRCLE! You’re welcome!”
Jimmy Havoc against Darby Allin followed the interview, with the winner earning a title shot against AEW Champion Chris Jericho next week on DYNAMITE! Excalibur reminded viewers that at FYTER FEST, Darby Allin took Cody to a 20-minute draw, and that he’s one of the fastest rising stars in AEW. Jimmy Havoc has 15 years of experience on his side, though. Things escalated quickly as Jimmy Havoc suplexed Darby Allin to the outside from the ring to the arena floor. Jimmy Havoc concentrated on working Darby’s fingers, biting them and then manipulating his joints. Jimmy Havoc applied a sleeper onto Darby and hit another suplex. Darby rolled to the outside to collect himself while Jimmy basked in the ring. When Darby returned to the ring, Jimmy hit a Death Valley Driver into the turnbuckles on Darby, and then a devastating Tiger Driver 98. Somehow Darby managed to roll up Jimmy with a crucifix, but Jimmy kicked out at two. Darby hit the Coffin Drop on Jimmy Havoc, landing right on Havoc’s sternum to gain the victory. Next week on DYNAMITE it’ll be Darby Allin versus AEW World Champion Chris Jericho.
Bea Priestly and Emi Sakura versus AEW World Women’s Champion Riho and Dr. Britt Baker, D.M.D., was up next. The legendary Sakura has 24 years experience in the ring. Riho and Sakura are very familiar with one another, and they were countering each other’s offense. Sakura applied the Romero Special on Riho, while Baker and Priestly slugged it out on the arena floor. Sakura and Priestly hit a double suplex on Baker and before they could capitalize, Riho hit a high cross body on the opposing team from the top rope to the outside. Back in the ring, Baker hit a DDT on Priestly, but Sakura broke up the count. Riho intercepted Sakura with a stomp to the mid section. Baker hit a neck breaker on Sakura and transitioned into her submission finisher, forcing Sakura to tap. After the match ended, Baker and Priestly had to be separated by Riho and AEW Referee Aubrey Edwards.
Chuck Taylor and Trent of Best Friends were interviewed ringside and asked for their thoughts on the tag team tournament and their upcoming match. They turned around, pointed to Orange Cassidy, and said, “Ask this guy.” In a vote of confidence, Cassidy gave his casually cool, freshly squeezed thumbs up!
Tully Blanchard accompanied “The Chairman” Shawn Spears down to the ring. PAC joined the broadcast team for this match. The arena erupted as Jon Moxley was introduced and stormed down to the ring. Spears and Moxley quickly squared off like two bulls. Moxley quickly took over on offense with swift kicks and elbows to Spears. Moxley was like a runaway train, taking the fight to Spears and throwing him into the ringside barricade. Tully Blanchard tried to interfere, momentarily distracting Moxley while Spears tried to get a few shots in, including draping Mox’s neck across the top rope. A shrewd Tully Blanchard ran Moxley into the metal ring steps. Spears rained fists down on Mox’s forehead. Spears carried Moxley and ran his opponent’s neck right smack into the ringside barricade. Spears took a sip of bottled water and spit it at Moxley. Spears had his opponent hanging by a thread, but Moxley rallied back. Moxley connected with a tope suicida on Spears. Moxley hit a running knee on the temple of Spears, who mustered up the energy to kick out at two. Both men exchanged chops and forearms. Moxley took Spears down with a ruthless clothesline. Moxley nailed the Paradigm Shift on Spears for the three count!
Kenny Omega appeared on the ramp, holding a barbed wire bat and a barbed wire broom while Moxley slowly walked up from the ring. Omega tossed the bat to Moxley, and before the barbed wire weapons duel could begin, PAC snuck from behind and clocked Omega with a steel chair. Moxley held the barbed wire bat, stared at the downed Omega, and sauntered away.
The main event of the night was “The Natural” Dustin Rhodes and “Hangman” Adam Page versus “The Best Ever” Sammy Guevara and AEW World Champion Chris Jericho (accompanied by Jake Hager). Dustin Rhodes took Jericho to the outside with a combination of punches. Rhodes and Page took turns delivering lariats to Guevara in the ring. Guevara missed a kick on Page. Dustin was tagged in and stomped mud holes into Guevara. A hungry, driven Adam Page hit a shooting star press on Guevara. After a distraction from Jericho, Guevara pancaked Page on the top turnbuckle. Jericho was tagged in and choked Page, whose neck was draped over the ropes. Jericho taunted Page, slapped him in the face and pulled his hair. Jericho attempted a springboard but Page was able to lift his knees into Jericho’s ribs. Page turned Guevara inside out with a stiff lariat. Dustin got the hot tag and did a double cross body off the top turnbuckle onto Jericho and Guevara. Page hit a moonsault to the outside on Guevara, but Jake Hager flattened Page with a clothesline. Hager ran into the ring and wiped out Rhodes while Guevara distracted the referee. Jericho seized the opportunity and blasted Rhodes with The Judas Effect for the pinfall victory.
The beatings continued on Page and Rhodes until the lights went dark in the arena. When they were turned back on, Cody was standing in the center of the ring, ready, willing and able to assist Dustin and Page. Ortiz and Santana entered the fray, but MJF stormed the ring to even up the odds with a steel chair. MJF cleaned house until Jericho grabbed him. The Young Bucks raced to the ring to assist their buddies from The Elite. As Jericho retreated to the back, Darby Allin sped down the entrance ramp on a skateboard and wiped out the AEW World Champion. The Inner Circle and Jericho backtracked, with Jericho pointing at Darby Allin and screaming “I’ll see you next week. It’ll be your funeral!”
