AEW Dynamite Results for June 12, 2024


CONTAINS SPOILERS


AEW DYNAMITE was broadcast live on TBS from the Wells Fargo Arena in Des Moines, IA!


Excalibur, Taz, and Tony Schiavone were the broadcast team for tonight’s event.


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


AEW World Champion Swerve Strickland came out to the ring with Prince Nana to start the show!


Swerve: “Are you ready for the Forbidden Door coming up in a few weeks. In one corner we’ve got the International Champion Will Ospreay challenging AEW World Champion Swerve Strickland in the main event for my championship. The biggest stars of this generation colliding, two absolute killers…well, more like one killer in that ring.


“Will, I told you about 10 years ago once you developed that killer instinct, there wouldn’t be anyone able to stop you. Last year you were in the ring with Kenny Omega, and I saw an assassin get the job done. Fast forward a few months, you against Takeshita, an assassin got the job done. And I saw you against Bryan Danielson and once again an assassin got the job done. I didn’t see that so much at Double or Nothing.


“But I respect you because you’re a fighting champion. Unlike some EVPs who haven’t defended their belts since they got those things.”


The Elite walked onto the stage—AEW Continental Champion Kazuchika Okada, AEW World Tag Team Champions The Young Bucks, and Jack Perry!


Okada: “Stop, stop, stop. Whose house? It’s my house, bitch.”


Nicholas: “Relax, Okada. Sorry about that Swerve, he gets very defensive over his friends. But right now, I want to talk about how dominant the Elite have been. We took out Omega. We helped break Eddie Kingston’s leg. And at Anarchy in the Arena, we destroyed Team AEW. Half the roster is gone because of us! All the trolls and the bots still doubt us! Even the wrestlers in the back don’t think we’re violent enough! Well guess what? We challenge AEW’s best in the most violent match in AEW—BLOOD & GUTS!”


Matthew: “Hey Swerve, this is where you come into the picture. We don’t exactly love all the things you said about us, but we dig your style. You’re young and you’re a champion just like us. So, we came out here to ask you a question. Do you want to stand out here with winners? Do you want to change the world? Swerve, traditionally Blood & Guts is five against five and there’s only four of us. Swerve, will you be our fifth man? And to make it official, I always wanted to see what you’d look like in a pair of our new sneakers.”


Swerve: “First of all, I don’t wear size nine. And I’m a businessman, I do my own thing.”


Matthew: “Do you hear that? It’s an injury bug and it just landed on you, champ!”


The Acclaimed and Billy Gunn sprinted to the ring to even up the odds for Swerve!


Christopher Daniels: “Stop! Listen normally I’d let a brawl go all night long! But we’ve got a packed show tonight, so I need all of you out of that ring and backstage right this minute. Except you Jack Perry, because you are wrestling right now against this man…”


TNT Championship Ladder Match Qualifier!

“The Natural” Dustin Rhodes vs. “Scapegoat” Jack Perry!


Jack Perry raked Dustin’s eyes. Dustin fired back with a big lariat. Jack Perry ripped off the middle turnbuckle pad. Jack Perry shoved Dustin out of the ring and into the steel ring post! Perry pushed Dustin into the steel ring steps. Jack exposed the cement, peeling back the protective padding on the arena floor. Jack Perry tried to piledrive Dustin onto the cement, but Dustin countered with a back drop. Dustin Rhodes was busted wide open, blood gushing from his forehead.


Jack Perry lined up Dustin for the V-Trigger, but Dustin countered with a powerslam. Dustin followed up with a running bulldog. Dustin was looking for the Cross Rhodes, but Jack Perry escaped. Dustin jabbed at Jack and then delivered an American elbow. Dustin drilled Jack with the Cross Rhodes for a near fall!


Jack Perry sent Dustin headfirst into the exposed turnbuckle. Perry plastered Dustin’s head on the concrete outside the ring with a DDT! Jack Perry kicked Dustin with a low blow when the ref had her back turned. Jack Perry cracked Dustin with a charging knee strike and pinned Dustin Rhodes!


“Jack Perry advances to the TNT Championship Ladder Match at FORBIDDEN DOOR live on pay-per-view for the vacant TNT Championship on Sunday, June 30th,” said Excalibur.


“El Toro Blanco” Rush vs. Deonn Rusman!


Rush clobbered Deonn with a big elbow strike! Rush whipped Rusman into the barricade. 


“I hope MJF is paying attention,” said Taz.


“I think Rush has become the single most violent man in AEW,” added Tony Schiavone.


Rush blistered Deonn with chops in the corner. Rush smashed into Rusman with the Bull’s Horns and then pinned Rusman!


“I think you can make a case for Rush being one of the hottest wrestlers in AEW right now,” said Tony Schiavone. 


Rush: “Typical American, like all of you, weak!”


Rush put Rusman back into the corner and was about to hit the Bull’s Horns again when MJF’s music hit!


MJF ran to the ring and MJF and Rush began to exchange big strikes! Security tried to separate both of them. MJF chomped on Rush’s head! Rush pulled MJF out of the ring and whipped MJF into the barricade. Rush and MJF brawled into the crowd! The fight went on backstage! MJF muscled up Rush and smashed Rush through a table! The locker room emptied to pry them apart!


Excalibur announced breaking news! Next week on AEW Dynamite it’ll be MJF against Rush kicking off the show commercial free!

We all respect each other here. I respect all of my branches in the Jericho Vortex. There’s a couple of youngsters who need a little advice to get to the next level, so I’m going to bring out Private Party right now!”


Zay and Quen came down to the ring!


Jericho: “You guys have been doing some great work here in AEW, but you haven’t been winning matches. The reason for that is your basics just aren’t to snuff. I don’t know who trained you. Since I was trained by the late, great Stu Hart, 33 years ago in the Dungeon in Calgary, I know a thing or two about doing the basics properly. You guys are technically unsound.”


Zay: “How about you teach us? I want to see it. I know Quen wants to see it.”


Jericho: I’m going to show you guys right now how to climb the top rope the way the late, great Owen Hart showed me.”
