Tonight’s episode of AEW DYNAMITE was held live from the Agganis Arena in Boston, MA!
It’s Wednesday night and you know what that means!
Jim Ross, Tony Schiavone, and Excalibur were the broadcast team for tonight’s event.
Making his DYNAMITE in-ring debut…CM Punk vs. “The Infamous” Bobby Fish!
“CM Punk still with a perfect record here in All Elite…Bobby Fish looking to put a blemish on that,” said Excalibur.
“Bobby Fish being an 18-year veteran, he’s not going to be blown out of the water,” added Jim Ross.
Bobby Fish changed levels, kicking Punk in the turnbuckles. Fish hit knee strikes on Punk but Punk took Fish down and dropped an elbow. Punk used three consecutive body slams on Fish. Punk went for a short arm clothesline but Fish countered with a back elbow. Fish followed up with a senton.
Fish hit a snap suplex on Punk for a near fall. Punk clotheslined Fish to the outside of the ring. Punk smashed Fish into the barricade with a tope suicida! Punk climbed to the top rope but Fish rolled back outside. Fish baited Punk and then kicked Punk’s leg out from beneath him.
Fish charged at Punk with an elbow for a near fall. Fish punished Punk with an inverted leg screw. Fish focused his attack on Punk’s left knee.
“Fish is trying to completely destroy the vertical base of the red-hot CM Punk,” said Jim Ross.
“That would neutralize Punk’s GTS,” added Excalibur.
“Every blow by Bobby Fish is on target,” mentioned Tony Schiavone.
Punk rallied back with strikes on Fish on the outside, but Fish blasted Punk with a knee strike. Back in the ring, Fish walloped Punk with kicks to the inside of Punk’s leg. Punk used forearms to push Fish away and off the turnbuckles. Punk balanced on one leg and dropped an elbow off the top turnbuckle to Bobby Fish!
Punk connected with a neck breaker and then a short arm clothesline on Fish for a near fall. Punk attempted the GTS but Bobby Fish countered with a dragon screw and then a sliding clothesline! Punk hoisted up Fish again and finally connected with the GTS! Punk finished off Fish with the pin!
“It wasn’t easy but CM Punk persevered,” said Excalibur.
“Bobby Fish deserves some congrats because, in a losing effort, he had his very best match,” added Jim Ross.
Up next: MJF (with Wardlow & Shawn Spears) vs. Bryce Donovon!
MJF kicked Donovon and then whipped him into the corner! He quickly hit the Heat Seeker pendulum piledriver and pinned Donovon with one finger!
MJF had words for Darby Allin after the match: “Darby, on September 29th, you made a mistake and interrupted me when I told everyone that I deserved to be the AEW World Champion, which is true. And you threw the gauntlet down and now you’re too scared to show up for work. I knocked out Sting with my Dynamite diamond ring. Now that Darby’s out of my way, there’s nothing stopping me. I am the past, the present, the future…”
Sting’s music began to play and MJF pretended to act scared. The lights turned back on and MJF laughed, saying it was all a joke. The lights turned off again and MJF said “Very funny Spears.” Spears said it wasn’t him who turned off the lights.
Sting appeared in the ring and hit Wardlow. MJF retreated! A “fan” in the crowd dressed in an Invisible Man Halloween costume unmasked and revealed himself to be Darby Allin! Darby had a skateboard embedded with thumbtacks. Darby and Sting cleared the ring of Shawn Spears and Wardlow, and then Darby got on the microphone:
“Max…FULL GEAR!” said Darby Allin.
Tony Schiavone interviewed AEW Women’s Champion Dr. Britt Baker, D.M.D. backstage. Schiavone said Tony Khan signed a No DQ match between Baker and Abadon for this Friday’s RAMPAGE!
TNT Title Match!
TNT Champion “Spanish God” Sammy Guevara vs. “All Ego” Ethan Page!
If Sammy is victorious, the Inner Circle gets the 10-Man Tag Match at FULL GEAR. If Sammy loses, he must leave the Inner Circle.
Everyone was barred from ringside.
Sammy bolted down the ramp and hit a knee strike on Page, sending Page crashing to the arena floor! Sammy took flight and jumped over the top rope with a back flip onto Page! Sammy hurled Ethan Page onto the timekeeper’s table and then into the barricade.
The bell finally rang! Page and Sammy traded strikes. “I’m the man!” yelled Page.
Sammy used a snap suplex and floated over. “The Premier Athlete” Tony Neese was watching from ringside.
Sammy picked up Ethan Page and dropped him, but as Page was descending to the mat, Sammy kicked him! Page rallied back by dropping Sammy across the turnbuckles! Ethan Page was looking for “Ego’s Edge” but Sammy slipped out! Sammy kicked Page behind the head!
“How accurate was that kick!” said Jim Ross.
Sammy hit a springboard cutter onto Page! The “Spanish God” followed up with a Spanish Fly for a near fall! Sammy connected with a beautiful shooting star press onto Ethan Page on the outside!
Page managed to shift the momentum. He climbed to the top turnbuckle but Sammy met him up there! Page picked up Sammy and body slammed him off the top! Page hit a running shoulder tackle on Sammy! Page hoisted Sammy up, looking for the avalanche Ego’s Edge but Sammy countered. Sammy finished off Ethan with a shooting star press for the pin!
Scorpio Sky sprinted to the ring and began to assault Sammy after the match. Jericho and the Inner Circle ran out to come to the aid of Sammy. Scorpio Sky and Ethan Page backed off in a hurry!
Jericho grabbed a microphone: “Sammy won his match with you, Page, and that means there’ll be a five-on-five, ten men tag match at FULL GEAR. Page, Sky, American Top Team against the reunited Inner Circle. And by virtue of Tony Khan, this match will now be a Minneapolis Street Fight! Tell Dan Lambert to be at DYNAMITE next week so we can tell him which members will be facing us!”
Tony Schiavone was backstage with Bryan Danielson and Eddie Kingston!
“Don’t tell me about hard work until you’ve walked a mile in my shoes,” said Kingston, and then he walked away.
“That’s the Eddie Kingston I want to see. I hate to tell you Eddie, but I’ve been through it too. I am not saying you’re not a hard worker, Eddie. Him and Jon Moxley are the two toughest professional wrestlers I’ve met in my entire life.
“And despite all of that, on Friday, I’m going to go out there and prove I’m the best. And Eddie, I don’t care if you’re going to listen or not, but I’m going to beat you,” said Danielson.
Tony Schiavone was with the AEW Tag Team Champions The Lucha Bros backstage!
“FTR, we know what you want. We will put these titles on the line at FULL GEAR on November 13th,” said Rey Fenix.
TBS Women’s Title Tournament First-Round Match!
“The Woman of a Thousand Holds” Serena Deeb vs. Hikaru Shida!
Shida and Deeb chain wrestled to start the match. Shida kicked at Deeb in the corner. Deeb swept out the leg of Shida and wrapped it into the steel ring post! Shida used her legs to pull Deeb into the steel post. Deeb was seeing stars on the outside of the ring and Shida left the ring to bring Deeb back in (to prevent a count out). Shida brought Deeb back in by suplexing her!
Deeb unleashed European uppercuts on Shida, but Shida hammered back with fists! She whipped Deeb into the corner and rocked Deeb with a running elbow. Shida hit a missile dropkick and then a delayed vertical suplex for a near fall on Deeb!
Shida dropped an ax kick and then followed up with a release German suplex on Serena. She planted Deeb for a near fall! Shida connected with a running knee strike on Deeb for another near fall! Shida pushed Deeb who landed hard on the arena floor.
Shida jumped off the ring steps with a missile drop kick on Deeb! Serena fought back by wrapped Shida’s legs across the ring post and applying the figure four!

Shida became AEW’s first female with 50 wins! After the match, Deeb chop blocked Shida. Deeb took a steel chair and swung it at Shida repeatedly. AEW referees, including Jerry Lynn, ran out to the ring to try to stop Deeb’s assault on Shida!
Tony Schiavone was backstage with Lio Rush and Dante Martin. Tony Schiavone informed us that Mike Sydal was injured, so this Friday, instead of a tag match, it’ll be Dante Martin against Matt Sydal!
Men’s World Title Eliminator Tournament Eliminator Match!
Jon Moxley vs. Dark Order’s Pres10 Vance!
The winner will face “Freshly Squeezed” Orange Cassidy in the semifinals of the tournament.

“The American Nightmare” Cody Rhodes came out to the ring with Arn Anderson!
Cody: “Whether you believe it or not, I hear you. I hear you online. I hear old wrestling managers shouting at clouds on social media. And I heard you this Saturday. I had one of the best wrestlers in the world, Malakai Black—I hit a Tiger Driver ’98, but for a brief glimmer I thought about hitting a different move. Would I have popped up? Would I have broken a rule?
“But you know why I didn’t? Because that was the easy way out. I feel like as a fan you have the right to cheer or boo, but if you’re going to acknowledge the man who signs the checks, please acknowledge the man who built this bank.
“The easy way out is not the way. I will not turn. And the reason is simple, because I love you guys and I’ve loved you my entire life. So if anybody thought that maybe I got a little ‘Hollywood’, I apologize to all of you and those in the Nightmare Family. And Arn Anderson, if I’ve never told you, let me tell you right now: it is a damn honor to stand in the ring with you. I apologize. You were right”
Andrade El Idolo walked out with a microphone: “Cody, these people don’t like you. The people don’t like me. But the difference is I don’t like the people. Cody, you made stupid choices. First, that stupid tattoo. Second, you got in my business. Look at me, I am Andrade El Idolo. But, wait. But if you want, I can make you my little bitch.”
The lights in the arena went out!
The lights came back on and Malakai Black was in the ring. He sprayed the black mist at Cody Rhodes. Black and Andrade El Idolo began to double team Arn Anderson! “The Bastard” PAC sprinted out to the ring to even up the odds! PAC flipped off Andrade El Idolo and Malakai Black. AEW officials had to hold back Malakai Black and Andrade El Idolo!
Dark Order vs. The Elite!
Dark Order’s Evil Uno, Stu Grayson, John Silver, & “Boom Boom” Colt Cabana vs. The Elite—AEW World Champion Kenny Omega, The Young Bucks (Matt & Nick Jackson), & Adam Cole #BayBay!
The Elite were dressed as Ghostbusters. Adam Cole kicked at John Silver, who was dressed as Bambi. Silver hit a head butt on Cole and followed up with a back body drop!

Grayson tagged in and then the Dark Order splashed Matt Jackson in the corner. Colt Cabana, dressed as Brandon Cutler, cold sprayed Matt Jackson!

“The Super Elite are going to steal this thing once again,” added Excalibur.
They grabbed their proton packs and sandwiched the Dark Order with splashes. The Super Elite powerbombed Colt Cabana on the proton packs!
The top end of a costumed horse ran out to the ring and the Super Elite took him out to pasture with the BTE Trigger! They removed the horse’s head and it was Brandon Cutler with his mouth taped!

“The Elite got outsmarted here tonight,” said Jim Ross.
