A pair of title matches on last night’s Dynamite...
Hikaru Shida pinned Tay Conti to retain her AEW Women’s Championship. Dr. Britt Baker was out after the match to reveal SHE is now on top of the rankings of contenders for Shida’s title.
In last night’s main event...Darby Allin held onto his TNT Championship. He used the Last Supper to hold down Jungle Boy for the pin.
During the match, Sting traded punches with Luchasaurus...and that tussle spilled down one of the entrance tunnels.
After the match, Ethan Page and Scorpio Sky ran out to beat up Allin and Jungle Boy. Page hit Allin with the Ego’s Edge. Lance Archer came out. Page and Sky beat him up too. Sting returned and that was enough to get rid of Page and Sky..
The show opened with Hangman Page SUBMITTING Ricky Starks - cinching up his head and ankle to get the tap out.
Earlier in the match, Starks under-rotated while flipping out of a German suplex and landed on the back of his neck. Starks later tweeted that he’s “good”.
Team Taz jumped Page after the match, but Dark Order quickly ran out for the save.
Penta El Zero Miedo beat Trent. Penta’s translater Alex Abrahantes got physically involved in this match - taking advantage of a distracted referee...and hitting Trent in the head with a microphone, allowing Penta to finish him off.
QT Marshall pinned Billy Gunn. This was a wild one. Marshall’s student Nick Comoroto brawled with Gunn’s sons at ringside. As that was happening, Anthony Ogogo snuck out...and one punch to the midsection of Billy Gunn led to a Cutter from QT...and the pin.
Marshall was looking for more after the match - but he was run off by Dustin Rhodes, who was armed with a bull rope. Rhodes settled for smashing a wooden chair over the head of Comoroto.
Christian Cage hit the Killswitch and pinned Powerhouse Hobbs.
