AEW DYNAMITE was broadcast live on TBS from the Blue Arena
in Loveland, CO!

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

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

The returning MJF kicked off the show!

MJF: “Cut my music! Cut my music! MJF is back! I’m here to
put everybody on notice. While I was out nursing my wounds,
sitting at home, I’m watching a ton of children make bold
claims on my show. I’ve got one guy walking around saying
he’s the ‘Rainmaker.’ The guy can’t even afford a gym

“Another guy was swerving around, claiming he’s the leader
of the Mogul Embassy. Hell of a leader. They turned on you.
The part that offended me is that you referred to yourself
as a business mogul. The most egregious claim was from a
cockney walking around saying, ‘Oy, I’m the best in the
world, bruv.’ That’s real interesting Willie. Last time I
checked you’re not Kenny Omega, Danielson, Cody, Moxley, but
you know who happened to beat all of them? That’s right…MJF.
So the next time you want to come on my show and lie, watch
your tone and check your mouth. Silly Billy, you’re not the
best in the world, bruv. I am!

“In five short years I became the face of AEW. I became the
most hated man walking this planet only to become the most
beloved. And that doesn’t happen by accident. So imagine how
I felt when I went home after carrying this place and people
had the audacity to smear my name. Revisionists trying to
revise my name, my legacy…”

Rush walked onto the ramp and interrupted MJF!

Rush: “You never shut up! Listen to me but listen well.
While you’ve been gone, I’ve been here working hard,
wrestling, winning. So now you come back, and you get a big
celebration. Where’s my celebration? Where’s my big moment?
I’m going to take your spot because when you mess with the
bull, you get the horns!”

MJF: “OK, listen, I didn’t get any of that. Rush, can you
run that by us one more time?”

Rush: “I said—”

MJF: “We don’t give a s—t! At one point in time, I paid a
lot of money for you to take out Bryan Danielson. I know how
talented you are. You sold out arena after arena in Mexico.
You came to the U.S. and in record time you became ROH World
Champion. But here’s the problem. I ain’t one of the best.
I’m the best. But out of respect, love and admiration for
you, I want to tell you how interrupting me made me feel.
I’m better than you and—”

Rush charged the ring and Rush and MJF began to brawl!
Christopher Daniels, interim executive vice president and
AEW security jumped into the ring to try to separate Rush
and MJF!

knocked one another down!

with an arm bar. Rey Fenix splashed Kyle as the arm bar was
on Orange.

The fans chanted “This is awesome! This is awesome!”

figure four leg lock. Fenix went for a stomp on them, but
Kyle grabbed Fenix in a guillotine. Kyle locked Lethal in an
arm bar. Orange nailed Rey Fenix with a spinning DDT! Lethal
caught Orange in a Lethal Combination! Lethal blasted Kyle
with the Lethal Injection. Lethal went for the figure four
on Fenix but Rey Fenix rolled up Lethal with a cradle and
pinned Lethal!

“Fenix gets a shot at the International Championship next
week on Dynamite!” said Taz.

After the match, Don Callis and Trent Beretta walked to the
ring. Callis gave Trent a steel chair. Orange grabbed a
steel chain and wrapped it around his fist. Kris Statlander
jumped into the ring and begged Orange to back off!

Stokely Hathaway: “Don’t underestimate her!”

Statlander clocked Cassidy with a cheap shot!

Willow Nightingale sprinted to the ring and Statlander
retreated from the ring with Stokely!

An SUV pulled up outside the arena. It was FTW Champion “The
Learning Tree” Chris Jericho with Big Bill and the “Bad
Apple” Bryan Keith!

Jericho grabbed the camera from the camera man! “You need to
hold this so it’s not shaky,” said Jericho. Chris Jericho
said the camera man needed more practice and to follow them
inside the arena.

Renee Paquette interviewed Willow Nightingale backstage!

Willow: “Congrats Mercedes for today, but one day there is a
score to settle. But I trusted Kris and she betrayed my
trust. I always talk about this smile, but after being
stabbed in the back, you don’t know how dangerous that can

Orange Cassidy walked by, and fist bumped Willow.

Interim EVP Christopher Daniels walked out to make an

CD: “On June 30th at Forbidden Door, we will crown a new TNT

followed up with a Death Valley Driver. Briscoe climbed to

fall victory!

Backstage Jack Perry had harsh words for Mark Briscoe!

Jack Perry: “Congratulations Mark Briscoe, you qualified.
But what’s it going to matter? I’ve already proven that
nobody is willing to sacrifice more than I am. So, Tony Khan
can try to screw me over as many times as he wants. But I
can’t be stopped. The universe has already chosen me and one
way or another I am the next TNT Champion!”

Renee Paquette was backstage with Samoa Joe and HOOK!

Renee: “Is it safe to call you Hook’s new mentor?”

Samoa Joe: “I wouldn’t call it a mentorship…”

Tony Nese interrupted HOOK and mocked HOOK for eating a bag
of chips.

HOOK: “You still losing matches?”

The Premier Athletes—Nese and Ariya Daivari grabbed the bag
away from HOOK and mocked him. Samoa Joe held HOOK back.

it on our time.”

Bryan Keith and Big Bill!

congratulated them on their success after all the time they

the lead commentator on Rampage and doing a good job! And
Angelo, a beautiful new bride with a baby on the way. Thanks

The Acclaimed—Max Caster, Anthony Bowens, and Daddy Ass
walked to the ring.

Caster rapped and dropped some bars mocking The Young Bucks!

EVPs Matthew and Nicholas Jackson appeared on the big screen
above the ramp and stopped Caster.

Nicholas: “Sorry, not sorry, but we had to cut your

Matthew: “You should know better. Didn’t you read the AEW
Employee Handbook? It says, ‘do not disparage your EVPs.’
Your segment is cut tonight!”

Renee Paquette was backstage with AEW World Champion Swerve
Strickland and Prince Nana!

Swerve: “First of all, welcome back MJF, you little bitch.
Finally, you show up to work and you mention my name. I’m
going to deal with you. I have the signed contract right
here for Forbidden Door. Prince Nana, I’m going to need for
you to send this to Will Ospreay. So tonight, my match with
Roderick Strong, understand you are dealing with the
mountain of professional wrestling. I’m not just going to
knock you off of it, I’m going to bury you under it.

“What’s been on my mind is the EVPs. Them winning at Double
Or Nothing. I was rooting for Team AEW. Make sure the next
time that you assemble Team AEW to represent Team AEW that
you don’t forget the AEW World Champion.”

had more business to attend to!

Christian Cage and the Patriarchy approached the EVPs.

company on my shoulder for the past year. I’m going to ask
for another title shot.”

give all of you belts. But we still have some pull here.
We’ll see what we can do. I promise you, you’re going to be

back, we’ll keep scratching your back.”

Jericho next week!

“American Dragon” Bryan Danielson was backstage and had some
words about his last year as a full-time wrestler!

Danielson: “I said this was going to be my last year as a
full-time wrestler. The truth is it hasn’t been what I
wanted. I lost against Christian Cage. I lost in the
Continental Classic. I lost against Okada at the Tokyo Dome.
Every big match I lose, and I lose, and I lose. The straw
that broke the camel’s back was losing at Anarchy In the

“I talked to Wheeler and saw how fired up he was to come
back. And I realized my last year is not over yet. And when
I heard Tony Khan announce that the winner of the Owen Hart
Tournament is going to get a championship match for the AEW
World Title at ALL IN: London at Wembley Stadium I got fired
up one more time. This might be my last shot but it’s going
to be the best shot I’ve had in my entire career and I’m
going out on top!”

across the top turnbuckle with a vicious back breaker!
