AEW Dynamite Results for November 1, 2023
Tonight’s special episode of AEW DYNAMITE was broadcast live from the KFC Yum! Center in Louisville, KY!
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!
Renee Paquette interviewed AEW World Champion MJF to kick off the show!
MJF: “I’ve got a list of everybody on the roster and hopefully there are three who aren’t complete A-holes. In the meantime, I’ve got my brochacho for life, Adam Cole, on the video chat for some advice.”
Adam Cole: “You know what makes me happy? The fact that you are officially the longest reigning AEW World Champion of all time. At this point you’re the greatest AEW World Champion of all time and that’s something to be really proud of. I wish I could be there right now because it feels like the entire world is gunning for you. I think you should at least consider Samoa Joe’s offer.”
MJF: “The last time I wrestled that guy he almost broke my neck. But listen I gotta go and find three partners for tonight. And just so you know, I promise you I’m going to successfully defend our ROH Tag Titles at the Full Gear pay-per-view. I’ll see you around.”
Roderick Strong rolled up in his wheelchair with the Kingdom!
Strong: “Can you believe Max leaving mid conversation? You know I’d never do that to you, right? But also, serious question, are we still pretending that he’s obviously not the devil? Like, because he seems like the devil to me.”
Adam Cole lost his connection.
Strong: “Adam! Adam!”
The transmission was interrupted by an image of someone wearing the devil mask!

“Orange is getting battered alone!” said Excalibur.
“This is an assault were watching right now,” replied Tony Schiavone.
MJF was knocking on Kenny Omega’s door!
Chris Jericho answered the door.
MJF: “Is Kenny in there?”
Jericho smiled and then slammed the door in MJF’s face.
As MJF was walking away, Wardlow shoved MJF against the wall!
Wardlow: “You took everything away from me! Now I’m going to take everything from you when you least expect it.”
Wardlow let go of MJF and MJF huffed away. As MJF turned the corner, The Acclaimed were waiting for him.
Max Caster: “Why don’t you team with us?”
MJF walked away, clearly frustrated.
After a commercial break, Jon Moxley was backstage!
Moxley: “I showed you respect, Orange, when no one would. I let you walk out on your own power in Chicago. I did not have to do that. Did you just write me off like everybody else did? Right now, I’m not doing too good so maybe this isn’t about you.
“Maybe you’re just the wrong guy in the wrong place at the wrong time. It doesn’t matter either way, Full Gear, I’m going to beat you within an inch of your life with my bare hands. And there’s not a damn thing you can do about it. Just because I can.”

“This is about coming after somebody’s family,” said Excalibur.
After a commercial break, MJF’s pursuit to find tag partners continued.

Up next: Tony Schiavone interviewed the “Rated R Superstar” Adam Copeland in the ring!
Adam Copeland: “Last week Sting got in my face. He also said we go a long way back. And we do. Because Sting and I have had a lot of the same injuries. So, we’ve been a sounding board for one another, and I respect the hell out of that man.
“I also respect Darby Allin because I think he is one of the lynch pins of this company and of this industry going forward. But Tony, I know you want answers. What am I going to do? Am I going to team with Sting and Darby Allin at Full Gear?”
TNT Champion Christian Cage came out onto the ramp with Luchasaurus and Nick Wayne!
Christian Cage: “Adam, before you give your answer, I just want to paint a little picture for you. I am going to retire Sting at Full Gear whether he likes it or not. And also, you haven’t seen Darby Allin around much lately, and if you have, you’ve noticed he has a gimp arm that’ll never be the same after I dumped him on the stairs at WrestleDream.
“Now I don’t think I need to remind you, Adam, or anybody else of your neck problems. And I’d hate for this fairy tale of yours to turn into a nightmare so I’m going to suggest you back down from me right now. If you know what’s good for you, Adam, you’ll back down from me or else I’m going to snap your neck and leave you in a wheelchair. You used to be somebody, but I can also see this isn’t sinking in. So, guys give him a little preview!”

Up Next: An Important Announcement from AEW CEO, President & GM Tony Khan!
Tony Khan was standing next to Nigel McGuinness.
Nigel: “Tony, from what I understand you have a huge announcement for all our fans all over the world.”
Tony Khan: “It’s been a great year for AEW. And now, all over the world, Christmas trees are going up all over the world. It’s the start of the holiday season.

Parker covered Jericho but Jericho kicked out. Parker swung at Jericho with the baseball bat. Jericho dodged it. Jericho decimated Parker with the Judas Effect and pinned him!
Don Callis: “I’ve got something to say! I’ve gotta give you credit, guys. Takeshita destroyed Kenny. Hobbs broke Jericho in two. And you guys are still back! You’re like cockroaches. You’re hard to get rid of. So maybe we have to take it up a notch.
“Maybe this doesn’t get finished in a wrestling match. Maybe this gets finished on the streets. So, if you’ve got the guts to face the greatest family in professional wrestling in a street fight in Ontario, California on Dynamite, then step up to the plate, you dummies!”
Jericho: “He just called us dummies, Kenny. What are we going to do?”
Omega: “You just said the magic word. You want a street fight. None of this was ever about playing by the rules. None of this was about winning matches. It was all about hurting me and hurting Chris. It was all for you. You want a street fight? Yeah, we accept it, but we’re not going to accept it alone. You want to bring your family along, well trust me, we’ve got an extra spot for Ibushi on our side.”
Callis: “You know I’m not a dummy, so I know by my math you’re still a man short.”
Omega: “I’m all out of ideas, Chris, can you help me?”
Jericho: “I look at Will Hobbs right here, the man that annihilated me a few weeks ago. And Hobbs is a big, big man, but I’ve got a friend who is even bigger.”
Callis: “No one is bigger than Will Hobbs!”
Jericho: “Maybe not a normal man, but as big as Will Hobbs is, he’s not a giant.”
Paul Wight walked onto the ramp! Paul Wight knocked out Kyle Fletcher with one punch!
Excalibur: “A match made! Dynamite in two weeks, the street fight in Ontario, California!”
After a commercial break, Renee Paquette was backstage to interview Kenny Omega and Chris Jericho!
Jericho: “In two weeks, the Don Callis Family has to face the Golden Jets, Kota Ibushi, and the biggest man in pro wrestling, Paul Wight!
The Young Bucks were in the locker room. Matt Jackson interrupted.
Matt Jackson: “Kenny, we’re friends, right? What was the whole point of the Elite getting back together if none of us have each other’s backs anymore. Who invited Jericho into our locker room?”
Jericho: “Don’t take it out on me because you lost your Trios titles. You weren’t good enough tonight. Watch your mouth when you talk to me.”
Omega: “Like Chris, hate Chris, he is aligned with us against the Don Callis Family.”
Matt Jackson: “Him and Don are cut from the same cloth. He’s going to screw you over just like Don did. Enjoy our locker room. Just clean up when you’re done!”
AEW Women’s World Championship Match!

The arena lights went dark! When the lights turned back on, Julia Hart was in the ring, standing behind Willow! Julia offered her hand to Willow. Skye Blue jumped into the ring and got in between Julia and Willow. Skye stared at Julia.
Julia nodded at Skye Blue. Skye turned around, looked at Willow, then turned back around and sprayed mist into Julia’s eyes!
“I think Skye Blue is going to pay for that,” said Taz.
Backstage, MJF was sitting on the floor when the Acclaimed approached him!
Daddy Ass: “Still no luck finding partners?”
Bowens: “Max, no one likes you except for Caster. I don’t know why you haven’t picked us in the first place because everyone loves the Acclaimed.”
Caster: “That’s right and if you team with us, you gotta scissor us and just wear what’s in this bag.”
MJF: “No, we will never tag! Do you understand me? And jokes on you, I’ve got one more group on my list.”
MJF turned around and he should be standing there? Jeff Jarrett, Karen Jarrett, Jay Lethal, Sonjay Dutt, and Satnam Singh, laughing!
Jeff Jarrett: “Max, we’re here to help.”
Renee Paquette was backstage when she was interrupted by Roderick Strong and the Kingdom!
They dialed Adam Cole on speakerphone. Roddy said Cole had to hear this.
Adam Cole: “Hello?”
Strong: “Adam! Hey, can you believe Max didn’t even attempt to ask us to be his tag team partners tonight? Especially after I’ve been so nice to him. What a jerk, huh?”
Cole: “Roddy, shut the hell up, man.”
Cole hung up.
