Tonight’s episode of AEW DYNAMITE was broadcast live from the Wintrust Arena in Chicago, IL!
Excalibur, Tony Schiavone, and “The Human Suplex Machine” Taz were the broadcast team for tonight’s event.
It’s Wednesday night and you know what that means!
William Regal was in the ring to start the show!
Regal: “Mr. Friedman doesn’t have time to come to places like Chicago. MJF is at the moment on the set of a major motion picture. I’m sure you’re all wondering what is the union between myself and MJF.
“What I can tell you is this: a number of weeks ago I sent an email to MJF that you’re not privy to until next week when MJF will be here to explain everything. Next week on DYNAMITE your new World Champion, the devil himself, MJF will be here.”
Jon Moxley’s music hit! Out walked the former champion!
“American Dragon” Bryan Danielson sprinted to the ring and got in between Moxley and Regal before Moxley could lunge at Regal.
Danielson: “Hey, listen Mox. I don’t know why he did what he did on Saturday. He did a bad thing. But you’ve done bad things. So have I. We have all done bad things. Please, he’s got a bad neck, please, don’t hurt him.”
Danielson slapped Moxley!
Danielson: “I’m sorry! Listen! Listen! I don’t care if the fans are booing. You know the struggles that you’ve dealt with? My dad struggled with those same things. This is more than wrestling. And when my dad had those struggles, I didn’t understand. And there was only one person who could teach me and it was this man.
“Because of Regal I was able to understand my dad’s struggles. And for the last ten years of my dad’s life, before he passed away, I was able to love him. Because of this man. Just imagine someone teaching your daughter to love you in spite of your struggles.
“Please. Save them for me. Because I love this man.”
Mox: “Lordship, I only want one thing from you. I want you to run. Run far away. As far away as you can. And you never come back. Right now. Walk. And keep on walking.”
