Tonight’s episode of AEW DYNAMITE was broadcast live from Daily’s Place in Jacksonville, FL!
It’s Wednesday night and you know what that means!
It’s the final DYNAMITE before this Sunday’s REVOLUTION pay-per-view!
Tony Schiavone, Excalibur, and Jim Ross were the broadcast team for tonight’s event.
AEW General Manager Tony Khan was out to make a huge announcement!
“Normally I’m the one keeping people on time so I’m going to make sure we get to the wrestling tonight. Thank you to all the fans for keeping this company going during the pandemic. This is the biggest week in the history of this company. We’re on the road to REVOLUTION and ahead of REVOLUTION, I have a huge announcement tonight.
“When we started AEW three years ago it was out in that parking lot. About 17 years before that another company started—ROH—Ring of Honor. Today I just signed a new deal. I just became the owner of Ring of Honor!
“Fallen Angel” Christopher Daniels vs. “American Dragon” Bryan Danielson!
Both wrestlers were at the first Ring of Honor show and are facing one another here tonight!
They observed the code of honor before the match, shaking hands.
“Danielson has been talking about teaching the younger wrestlers about violence. Danielson isn’t going to teach Christopher Danielson anything he doesn’t know,” said Tony Schiavone.
Daniels hit the leg lariat on Bryan and then followed up with a split legged moonsault off the ropes. Back in the ring, Bryan clobbered Daniels with roundhouse kicks.
Danielson applied a bow and arrow submission and Christopher Daniels, who grabbed the ropes to break the hold. They traded chops!
“Flesh on flesh echoing throughout Daily’s Place,” said Jim Ross.
Daniels planted Danielson with the Blue Thunder Bomb! Daniels followed up with an STO. Daniels was looking for the Angel’s Wings but Bryan escaped. Bryan closed the distance with a running strike into the corner!
Daniels knocked Bryan off the turnbuckles with a headbutt. Daniels tripped Bryan but Bryan cradled Daniels for a near fall. Bryan clocked Daniels with a rolling elbow! Bryan climbed to the top turnbuckle but CD blasted him with an open palm strike. Daniels attempted the Best Moonsault Ever but Bryan moved and captured Daniels with a leg lock. Bryan rammed his elbows down onto Daniels and the ref stopped the match as Daniels was knocked out.
“Ladies and gentlemen. Twenty years since the first Ring of Honor show. Christopher Danielson and I were in the main event. At that time we started the match with a handshake and we ended the show with a handshake. But here’s the thing. I’m not in Ring of Honor. I’m in AEW. And it’s time to kick somebody’s head in!”
Danielson grabbed Christopher Daniels’ arms and began to stomp on Daniels’ head!
Danielson: “Jon Moxley, the head that’s going to be kicked in on Sunday at REVOLUTION is yours,” said Danielson.
Jon Moxley’s music hit and Moxley stormed out to the ring!
Moxley: “I can see that the American Dragon Bryan Danielson is better than ever, and more violent than ever. But you’ve got it wrong my friend. I’m at a crossroads and which path I walk will determine my future.
“If I walk down one path I get my head kicked in on Sunday and I fade into oblivion. But that’s not going to happen. I choose to walk down another path. I will walk down bullets and through you. At the end of this path I beat ‘The American Dragon’ Bryan Danielson. The story of Jon Moxley is just starting. And I write the first chapter that’s going to be written in blood.
“There’s like a million people watching on TV. You want to prove me wrong? Take your shot!”
Danielson squared up to Jon Moxley and then retreated from the ring.

CM Punk came out to the ring!
CM Punk: “I used to splash water in my face every morning and ask myself, ‘Am I the bad guy?’ Up until a week ago I believed Max was the bad guy. And for Max to bare his soul like he did last week, it took a lot of courage.
“But I also can’t shake the feeling that I’m being gaslit. I don’t believe Max is lying. Where my questions like is in his sincerity. I must be getting soft in my old age but I don’t think it matters.
“There’s a famous picture of me on the internet, from when I was younger and I met Steve Austin. I’ve listened to Max bury Brian Pillman, Jr’s father, the late great Brian Pillman in his hometown. And he said awful things about Darby Allin’s uncle. When I came here Max stood in front of me and introduced himself and I didn’t shake his hand.
“Am I Dr. Frankenstein and he’s the monster? I don’t think there’s anything I can say that’s any more impactful than what I can do. Max can come out here and we can talk and have a conversation in front of the world.”
MJF joined Punk in the ring.
CM Punk: “So here’s the thing Max. I’ve done horrible things in my life. I used to be you. So full of hate. But listen man, I mocked a wrestler’s addiction until he lost his job because of it. I covered a legendary wrestler in the ashes of his manager. And I’m here to tell you that all that hate won’t keep you warm, it’s going to burn you up. I’d like to think my respect isn’t given, it’s earned.
“But this is about some 11-year-old kid at home watching right now who looks up to you, Max. And I woke up this morning and I splashed myself with water in the face and I asked, ‘Are you the good guy?’ And that answer is ‘I sure am trying.’”
CM Punk offered his hand to MJF. MJF paused and then grabbed CM Punk and hugged him. Punk hugged him back. MJF said “Thank you” and then kicked Punk with a low blow! MJF followed up with a heat seeker on Punk!
MJF called out Wardlow and Shawn Spears. Spears handed MJF the Dynamite Diamond Ring. MJF rocked Punk in the head with a stiff shot! Punk was busted wide open!
FTR were on the ramp, running interference.
“You stupid, stupid old man. I’m a snake. The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn’t exist. This Sunday at REVOLUTION I’m going to show the world and all these mindless sheep that I’m the devil himself!”
Wardlow and Spears had the dog collar around Punk’s neck and began to pull the steel chain from inside the ring, as Punk was bleeding on the arena floor!
“That ring is tearing at the flesh of CM Punk,” said Excalibur.
