Hello and welcome to our live coverage for tonight’s episode of AEW Dynamite, which is the second part of Bash at the Beach and comes to us from the Jericho cruise!
Three major matches have been confirmed for tonight, and they are:
- Jurassic Express vs. Chris Jericho, Santana & Ortiz
- SCU (c) vs. Adam Page & Kenny Omega – AEW World Tag Team Championships
- Jon Moxley vs. Pac – #1 contendership to AEW World Championship
Join our live coverage below from 8pm ET/1am GMT for results, updates and reactions to tonight’s show!
The #1 Contender Is...
The number one contender for the AEW World Title is… Jon Moxley!
Despite Pac targeting his injured eye throughout the match, Moxley managed to rally late and nail a Paradigm Shift for the win.
The title match is now set for Revolution, Chris Jericho defends against Jon Moxley!
#1 Contender To Be Decided
Schiavone grabs an interview with new World Tag Team Champions Adam Page and Kenny Omega.
Kenny says that he’s spoken with management and his rubber match with Pac will indeed happen at some point, but for now, being tag champions is priority.
The Bucks walk up and congratulate them, but Page doesn’t seem too impressed with them.
Another big trios match for Inner Circle is set for next week as Darby Allin and Private Party take on Jericho, Santana & Ortiz. Also announced for next week are Kip Sabian vs Cody, and the Young Bucks vs. Butcher and Blade.
Jericho comes out to do commentary with JR and Excalibur for the upcoming top contender match between Pac and Jon Moxley.
MJF Beats Janela, But Outsmarted By Cody
MJF picked up the win with the Double Cross after Janela was distracted by Kip Sabian and Penelope Ford kissing on the stage.
After the match, Friedman grabbed a mic and took a few shots at Cody and his promo last week, which brought the ‘American Nightmare’ out. MJF reminded him of the stipulation that Cody can’t touch him until their match at Revolution.
Cody said he’s right, he can’t touch him. But, out came the Young Bucks behind Friedman, and guess what, they can! They nailed him with dual superkicks and chucked him into the pool, much to the joy of the crowd.
Coming up next is the main event as Jon Moxley takes on Pac to determine the number one contender for the AEW World Champion Chris Jericho.
Inner Circle Beat Jurassic Express
Despite the best efforts of Marko Stunt to keep Jericho down for the count of three, he couldn’t manage it and ate a Judas Effect from Jericho who picked up the win.
I’m not a Marko Stunt guy. I don’t like him being competitive with the top guys, especially the World Champion.
But at least Jericho won, so no harm done in the end.
MJF is in action next, taking on Joey Janela. Wardlow is not with Friedman as he’s apparently training for when he takes on Cody in a cage match on February 19.
Big Trios Match Next
Coming up next is a big trios match with Jurassic Express vs. Chris Jericho, Santana & Ortiz of the Inner Circle, with Hager at ringside.
The crowd had fun singing along to Judas before the match got underway. I believe it’s what the yoot dem refer to as a sick tune.
Britt Baker Wins
Baker picked up the win, making Kelly submit with the Lockjaw.
After the match, Schiavone interviewed her in the ring, and she got a little bit cheeky and got some flack from the crowd, which pushed her to start bragging about how hot she is, and hilariously, they threw to a Jungle Boy vignette during her gloating.
I like these vignettes, and they do need to do more of them so the audience can get to know guys like Jungle Boy who are being used quite prominently, but might be relatively unknown compared to others on the roster.
New Tag Team Champions!
Adam Page and Kenny Omega have managed to overcome SCU and win the AEW World Tag Team Titles!
That was a really good match, and Page and Omega did have a bit of tension brewing throughout, with Page even inadvertently nailing Omega with a Buckshot Lariat, but they got past it and we’ve now witnessed the first ever title CHANGE in AEW history.
Page has some fun celebrating in the crowd as Kenny looks on from in the ring, and this is certainly going to be a very interesting reign.
Coming up next is Britt Baker vs. Priscilla Kelly.
Tag Titles On The Line!
We’re kicking off the action tonight with the AEW World Tag Team Championships on the line as Scorpio Sky and Frankie Kazarian of SCU defend against Kenny Omega and Hangman Page!
The setup is really rather nice on the cruise. Will Omega and Page be able to coexist yet again or will SCU prove too much and retain their titles?
