AEW Dynamite opens with the Inner Circle making their way to the ring to face the Best Friends and Jurassic Express.
The Best Friends and Jurassic Express defeat The Inner Circle
The match opens with Orange Cassidy continuously frustrating Jake Hager, continually escaping Hager with his superior speed.
But as Cassidy makes his way into the corner of the Inner Circle, he is beat down by the other four members, leading to each person in the match brawling in the ring and to the outside. Luchasaurus then hits a dive to all the men brawling on the outside, with Marko Stunt on his back.
Orange Cassidy then enters the ring and puts on his sunglasses and is hugged by the rest of his time. Sammy Guevera looks to capitalise on this with a dive from the top rope, but he misses and each member of the face time hit him with a dive to the corner, before Trent is taken out by Hager.
The Inner Circle then works over Trent, keeping him in their corner and continually cutting off the hot tag.
Trent eventually gets the hot tag to Luchasaurus who take out all of the members of the Inner Circle.
Luchasaurus lines up a choke slam to Guevara, but it’s prevented by Hager and the two begin brawling, with Luchasaurus’ mask falling off.
Each participant in the match then comes into the ring and hits a move before Luchasaurus hits Guevara with the tail whip. Before he can capitalise, Jericho prepares to hit Luchasaurus with Floyd the Baseball bat, but Orange Cassidy makes the save.
Sammy Guevera then gets a drop kick to the leg of Luchasaurus before climbing to the top rope. But he is distracted by the music of Matt Hardy. Hardy then appears on the apron and pushes him off the turnbuckle and into a Luchasaurus kick for the win.
As we return from AEW Champion Jon Moxley addresses Brian Cage and Ricky Starks backstage. He calls the two punk ass bitches for attacking Darby Allin 2-on-1 last week and says that they will be getting a fair fight in their tag match tonight.
Warhorse then makes his way to the ring ahead of his much sought-after TNT Championship match against Cody.
Cody retains the TNT Championship, defeating Warhorse with the Figure Four
As the match starts, it’s clear to see that Cody is not impressed by Warhorse with his facial expressions, before mocking him with light slaps in the corner. Warhorse then comes back into the match with heavy strikes to the American Nightmare who leaves the ring looking frustrated.
Cody returns to the ring and looks to work the leg of Warhorse, setting up the Figure Four which he used to defeat Eddie Kingston last week.
But Warhorse clearly has Cody scouted, instantly reversing the figure four and leaving Cody scampering for the ropes. Cody goes to the outside but is met by a top rope stomp to the back of the head and then a top rope elbow drop in the ring for an incredibly close two.
Cody looks for the Figure Four again, but Warhorse manages to roll him up for yet another two count.
Warhorse looks to capitalise off the top rope, but he clearly hurts the leg that Cody has been working over. Cody takes advantage with a drop kick to the knee before locking in the Figure Four to retain the TNT Championship.
After the match, two members of the Dark Order take out Cody and Warhorse before squaring up to Arn Anderson.
But then Matt Cardona, the former Zack Ryder, makes his way to the ring to make the save as he hits both Dark Order members with Rough Ryders before celebrating with Cody.
We then go to Tony Schiavone at the top of the ramp to announce All Out on Septmber 5th, but he is interrupted by Jericho and the Inner Circle.
Sammy Guevara calls out Matt Hardy, calling him a “son of el bitch” for ruining his first match back in AEW Dynamite. Jericho then announces that he will have a rematch with Orange Cassidy in two weeks, but next week the two will to a debate.
We then go backstage to FTR signing their official AEW contracts.
FTR say that they want to win the Tag Team Championships, so they need to sign a contract to do so. But before they sign the contract, they want their tag team consultant Arn Anderson to look over it.
Arn proclaims FTR the best team in the world, before checking that FTR’s “Tag Team Appreciation Night” is in their for August 12th.
Hangman Adam Page then enters to celebrate with FTR, bringing four glasses and a bottle whiskey for FTR, Arn Anderson and himself.
Evil Uno and Stu Grayson then make their way to the ring as they prepare to face Kenny Omega and Hangman Adam Page for the Tag Team Championships.
As they make their way to the ring, Colt Cabana joins the commentary table, whilst Brodie Lee watches on with the newest recruit of the Dark Order, Anna Jay.
Kenny Omega and Hangman Adam Page retain the AEW Tag Team Championship, defeating The Dark Order with the Buckshot V-Trigger
As Kenny Omega enters the ring, he and Adam Page are arguing about who will start the match, allowing Evil Uno to jump Omega as the match starts.
Dark Order control the early stages of the match, keeping Omega in the corner with hot tags, before he escapes with a beautiful back breaker before tagging in Hangman.
Page and Omega attack Grayson in the corner before Hangman goes for a powerbomb, which Grayson counters into a hurricanrana out of the ring before diving over the turnbuckle to take him out, allowing Uno to hit Kenny with a senton and a powerbomb for two.
Omega then hits a Snap Dragon Suplex to Uno, but is then hit by a splash by Grayson. Before Grayson can capitalise, Hangman hits him with a huge lariat. Omega and Page then hit the Buckshot V-Trigger to retain the titles.
After the match, Brodie Lee berates Evil Uno and Stu Grayson before turning his attention to Hangman Page and Omega.
Brodie thanks Omega and the Young Bucks, who subsequently make their way to the ring, for being their for Hangman this week.
The Dark Orders creepers then surround the ring, but before they attack, FTR attack Lee with the drinks cooler and help the Elite fend off the creepers.
We then go to Britt Baker sat next to commentary who addresses Big Swole. She says that Swole can have a match with her if she can beat an opponent of her choosing.
We are then shown a package to build up Diamante and her match with Hikaru Shida, saying that she has nothing to lose but everything to prove.
Hikaru Shida defeats Diamante with a Running Knee Strike
The two women instantly brawl in the ring before making their way to the outside, where Shida hits a running knee strike to Diamante’s ribs as she is laid out on the crowd barrier.
Diamante continues to brawl with Shida, getting her into the corner with big forearm strikes.
Diamante hits a cutter and then looks for a Canadian Destoryer, but Shida counters into a Falcon Arrow for a two, before hitting a running knee strike for the win.
We then go backstage as Nyla Rose and Vickie Guerrero prepare for her pairing in the Deadly Draw. Rose draws purple, meaning she is paired with Ariane Andrew, the former Cameron.
MJF then makes his way to the ring, looking as if he is on the Presidential campaign trial in a suit and with a Burbery podium in the ring.
MJF asks the audience to tweet #MJF2020 and #NotMyChampion before he begins his speech. He says that he is shocked that he is allowed to be on AEW for a second week in a row as he normally isn’t, with “a certain someone” (Cody) being afraid of having their spotlight stolen.
He then says that Jon Moxley spoke about creating a Paradigm Shift in professional wrestling, but says that a man who can say and do whatever he wants because he came from “the land of the titans” is old hat brother.
He goes on to say that AEW is meant to be the land of opportunity but Moxley squandered that and now it’s time for change. MJF says that he is AEW, he bleeds Black, White and Gold and he will be leading the company for the next 25 years. He says that this is how they go from being the alternative to the pinnacle of professional wrestling before challenging Moxley to a match for the AEW World Championship at All Out.
As we return from the break, Darby Allin’s music hits ahead of the main event, but he is nowhere to be seen before Jon Moxley makes his way to the ring.
Tazz, Brian Cage and Ricky Starks berate Moxley and Allin backstage before they make their way to the ring. But as they make their way down the tunnel, Allin jumps off the set to attack them.

As the match starts, Moxley and Cage brawl on the outside. Darby tries to save Moxley with a suicide dive, but he is caught by cage, but then Moxley hits one of his own.

Darby the goes under the ring to get a skateboard with tacs on the bottom, stomping it into the back of Ricky Starks to pick up the win. We are shown a shot of Starks back covered in pins and blood.
After the match, Allin eyes Moxley’s AEW Championship and the two stare off as they prepare to face each other for the title next week.
