AEW Dynamite Live Recap & Results (12/11/2019)
Jordan Huie of the Overtimer here and AEW Dynamite is just moments away! I’ll be here to give you the live play-by-play of the show as it happens! Watch this space!
Amidst a loud cry of “AEW”, Jon Moxley’s theme hits and a jabroni is awaitin’ in the ring!
Jon Moxley vs. Alex Reynolds
Running knee lift from Moxley, Paradigm Shift. Goodbye!
Winner: Jon Moxley
Works for me! Reynolds tries to jump Mox, gets despoted from the ring. His buddy John Silver rushes the ring, only to get a Paradigm Shift of his own! Big chant of “Moxley”… but now Chris Jericho’s music hits! Backed up by the rest of the Inner Circle, he makes way down the ramp.
Jericho and Moxley stand in the ring together! Chant of “F*ck Him Up” starts, gets censored, Jericho demands they watch their language which gets massive heat! Jericho tells Mox to stay cool, if they were gonna ambush him they would’ve already. It’s just two gentlemen having a conversation. Says since coming to AEW, Moxley is the top guy as far as he’s concerned. Not surprised, they have a long history. Remembers a decade ago when he first came to the nationwide stage, came to him for advice. Recalls his leather jacket, Kurt Cobain bowl cut. He asked Jericho how to get over, how to become a star, and he did. Then they became adversaries and beat the sh*t out of each other. He was thrown into tacks, had his property torn up… but he helped make him a world champion. And when he needed help years later he came to Jericho. Jericho says he navigated him through the waters, through the cracks, and led him to AEW. Huge chant of “AEW”.
Jericho says he repaid him by laying him out at Double or Nothing and that’s okay. Showed him he still has that chip on his shoulder, is still an asshole, still a winner. Says he’s only just now harnessing the power that he has within him and once again he needs Jericho. Boos. Jericho says shut up. Significantly more boos! Tells him to imagine what it would be like if Moxley joined the Inner Circle! Makes it official, asks him to join! Big chant of “No”, fans begging him not to! Jericho says it’s not an answer you can give in one night, and not an answer you’ll get from morons here in Dallas. Tells him to talk it over with his family. But he lets him know that him joining with them would be a true Paradigm Shift. Think hard, choose wisely. When you’re ready, we’ll be waiting. Jericho lays an Inner Circle shirt on Moxley’s shoulder. He looks a tad bewildered.
Everyone again chanting “No” as the Inner Circle leaves the ring. Jericho warns Moxley not to listen to them, they don’t know anything. They make their leave.
Commentary run down the card and it’s been announced that the winner of the Street Fight tonight will challenge SCU for the AEW World Tag Team Championships next week on the final Dynamite of the year!
Huuuuge pop and chant for “Cody” as he comes out for this next match. During the entrance, an inset promo from MJF wishes Cody luck but can’t pronounce QT Marshall’s name right and also accidentally calls “Champ” again even though he can never be one.
Cody & QT Marshall vs. The Butcher & The Blade
Another huge chant of “Cody” as the bell rings but QT starts out with the Blade… only for Cody to tag right in! Rolls on the mat, lock-up! Blade takes him into the corner, clothesline ducked, Cody with a Standing Dropkick! Corner Punches, shoved off, headlock from the Blade, shot off, shoulder block, Cody counters with a snap powerslam for a 1 count! Butcher tags in now! QT wants to tag in, Bunny laughs at this, Cody gets people into it and gives him a shot. QT tagged in, quickly taken to the corner as Butcher has quite a bit of power advantage. QT with a big right hand, to no effect. Hit the ropes, Bunny grabs the ankle! QT goes out to argue with the Bunny, allowing the Blade to tag in and hit a tope! Commercial, match continues in the inset. QT taken to the corner, back elbow escape, tag to Cody!
Ducks several shots, escapes to the floor. Takes a drink of water! The Blade comes over – he spits it right in his face! Rushes inside to try for the Cross Rhodes, Blade with a snapmare, Cody with a flying forearm, tag to QT who comes in with a double axe handle to the arm! Butcher blind tags in, Deadlift Gutwrench Suplex with a single leg dropkick! Takes Cody to the floor. Power whip takes QT to the corner! Blade tags in, clothesline. Pendelum Backbreaker setup, tag to Butcher, Side Slam/Legdrop combo gets a nearfall! QT being pounded on as we come back, struggling to make a comeback. Loud claps. QT dumped to the floor. Crowd is mad as Bunny got a cheap shot in on QT. Blade with a knife edge chop! QT with a Jawbreaker, enziguri! Crowd is losing it as he fights to his corner!
Butcher dashes in – low bridge takes him to the floor! QT wants the tag but the Butcher pulls Cody to the floor for big heat! Butcher tags in, combo of big shots in the corner, back body drop from Butcher, cover for 2! Butcher with a whip – sudden handspring enziguri from QT Marshall! Tag to Blade, Stinger Splash missed!

He comes into the ring – hits Cross-Rhodes on Blade! Throws Cody into a Suicide Dive to the Butcher! QT with a top rope elbow drop! Daaaayam that was a close nearfall! Butcher takes Cody out on the outside and then both the Butcher and Blade gang up on QT in the ring! He does his damnedest to fight them both off, but eats a stunner, running knee strike, Suplex into Backstabber for the win!
Winners: The Butcher & The Blade
Wow that was a way better match than expected. Awesome stuff!
After the Butcher and the Blade leave… Darby Allin comes down the ramp? Gets a huge pop and reception. Darby offers a hand to Cody… helps him to his feet! Good reception to that. Seems Cody has another ally!
MJF comes out to a looooot of heat. Talks to one of the ringside hands and demands he gets into the ring. Chant of “Asshole”. He says when Cody made a jab at his use of the Cross-Rhodes he noticed him laughing last week. Says he can make it up to him by kissing his diamond ring. He doesn’t want to but opts to do it anyway. He turns, faces up with Wardlow… MJF grabs him from behind and hits another Cross-Rhodes! Not really botched this time, just kinda passable. “You Suck D*ck” chant, censored, wish they’d stop doing it. MJF says with a microphone in Cody’s hand, he’s untouchable, aside from one guy.
And of all people he started throwing shots at that guy! Says you don’t throw rocks at a man with a machine gun and when he talks, these bullets don’t miss! Says he doesn’t need his crap or his money, he has enough to last him a life-time. What he needs is for Cody to suffer. But there was one line he decided to say, he decided to call him a Knock-Off Chris Jericho. Big pop! He takes issue with the fans’ reception. Asks why? Is it because of his scarf, the same one that people so boldly say is fake? A chant of “Fake”! This crowd is great. MJF says when he thinks of the word fake, he thinks of Cody! Insults his hair and his teeth. Says there’s one thing about him that’s very real and that’s his sh*tty little lisp! Intense heat for that. For THAT! MJF dares them to fire him! But he won’t, because the one thing he wants most in this world is to get his hands on him, plus he’d be letting down these people he claims to care about, because what they want to see is the two of them face off! Asks the crowd if they want to see it, gets them into a frenzy, says “YOU’RE ON! …Buuut…” big heat. Says he has a few stipulations but he won’t tell him about them in Honkyville, Texas. Yet more heat. Chant of “Asshole”. Says he’ll give him the stipulations in Jacksonville. MJF has the cameraman zoom in and says he knows he’s back there foaming at the mouth waiting for someone to release him, but he’s in control now and not him, because he’s better than you and you know it.
Dark Order vignette plays, with their spokesman apparently being part of a hotel management or something? Alex Reynolds is on the bed and the guy addresses him directly. Says they’ve been the Beaver Boys lose for weeks. That’s the name of that team I guess. Tells him to stop being a jobber and join the Dark Order. John Silver walks in to find him beside himself.
Emi Sakura vs. Big Swole
Chant of “Swole” as Sakura plugs her ears. Swole wants a Test of Strength! She wins out on it, flexes! Whip reverses to the corner, floatover, forearm! Snapmare, handspring, kick to the face for a 2 count! Sakura with a Bell Clap, grabs the hair! Hair Biel! Just tosses her across the ring by the braids! Ref gets in her face over this, Swole with a leg kick! Emi grabs the hair again but gets a back hand for it! Drop toe hold from Sakura, Romero Special! Into the Surfboard! Rolling around with her now, torturous! Flings her away. Commercial break, match continues in the inset as Sakura chops her to the mat, keeping a hold of that wrist. Half Nelson, still playing with that hair, actually putting it in her mouth! Takes her to the corner, chops to the chest! Swole trying to fight out, but gets locked into a delayed Reverse STO! Aaaand the inset just goes away.
We come back, headbutt to the sternum! Swole with a charging uppercut in the corner! Wheelbarrow Facebuster! Driving European Uppercut! Nearfall. Emi with a Reverse Neckbreaker, stomps along for the claps. Charging crossbody in the corner! Hooks both arms, Tiger Backbreaker! Takes up the mic stand now. Waistlock from Swole, Emi reverses with an Abdominal Stretch and pantomimes signing to the mic. Rick Knox takes the mic stand away to some jeers. Emi blocks a kick from Swole, forces her to do the splits and she springs right back up, dancing and playing with the mic stand herself! Back body drop to the corner, WWE Headkick, Swole leaps in but Sakura grabs her out of the air, Double Underhook knee to the back of the head. Twisting Vader Bomb, nearfall. Moonsault, misses! Swole with a pump kick missed, but gets some shots in. Emi with a wicked slap, chop. Hits the ropes – thrust kick for a close nearfall! Crowd applauding. Swole shushes, waistlock, Ripcord Elbow but Emi counters with a back elbow of her own for 2. Swole ducks under a shot – Dirty Dancing Ripcord Elbow and that is that!
Winner: Big Swole
Broke down a tad towards the end but a pretty good match. Swole with a nice debut win there.
Backstage, promo with PAC where he’s asked about Kenny Omega. He says he came to this company for one reason; opportunity. Yet from the moment he set foot in the door he’s faced nothing but injustice. Says to AEW, Kenny Omega, one final warning: give him his rubber match or he will not be held accountable for what he does next!
In an inset promo ahead of this next one, Tully Blanchard says that Spears is teaming with Sabian as a scouting expedition, looking to give him a chance to find a tag partner he can mesh with.

Oh man… staying out for a while. Lights flashing on a man on the stage… Tully Blanchard’s tied up to a chair on the stage! Joey Janela is the man responsible, cackling!

Fires his gun, hits the ropes… V-Trigger to the back of the head! Hangman blind tags in, Buckshot Lariat and that is that!
Winner: Hangman Page
Kenny looks unsure of what to make of that, but decides a win is a win.
Vignette, Brandi says go on and mock her, talk about her but what does AEW look like without her? Has Riho gotten so small that you just can’t see her anymore because she hasn’t seen her in weeks? Says take a shot every time Britt Baker mentions her boyfriend, you’ll be on your back looking at the lights sooner than Leva Bates. Tells Kris Statlander the offer is still standing, she still wants her. The family is almost complete she’s just waiting for her alien to come home! Keeps the camera from seeing someone she has with her in the Nightmare Collective.
Chris Jericho comes out again, with Jake Hager, and bullies Excalibur and Tony Schiavone off the table. Jericho takes up the headset, Hager does as well but isn’t too talkative.
