It is Wednesday, my dudes…you know what that means.

Pyro kicks us off for another exciting week of Dynamite, back at the home of the first edition of the weekly program as Adam Cole’s music hits, marking his arrival to the ring for our opening match, a World Title Eliminator! Out next is the champion MJF, acting cocky as ever before this match gets underway!

AEW World Title Eliminator
Adam Cole vs. AEW World Champion MJF

The two men stare each other down to start things off, the crowd showing their excitement before a single move has been made. The staredown gets up close and personal between Cole and the champ, before they circle the canvas and lock up. Cole sends the champ to the ropes but gets taken down by MJF, who taunts Cole as he cuts the potential challenger off.

Cole runs the ropes, but MJF hits a leapfrog and backs off before Cole can hit him again. The champ escapes the ring, clearly not wanting to deal with Cole…and even goes to the crowd, mouthing off with fans before nearly knocking one’s glasses off! Eventually, the champ makes his way back to the ring, not wanting to be counted out to award Cole a victory here. The two men start to lock up again before MJF decries Cole for grabbing the champ’s hair, only to send Cole to the corner and follow up with a thumb to the eye and boots to the midsection!

MJF seems to be in control here as he taunts the crowd…but Cole is able to turn things around on the champ, sending him into the corner. Cole continues the beatdown on MJF, until the champ hits an arm wringer on Cole. This gets turned around on the champ, who gets sent to the outside…but he catches Cole by surprise, dropping Cole down hard before trapping him on the apron curtain! He goes after the hand of Cole now, stomping it against the steel steps before Cole is able to get back in the ring to escape.

MJF gets a sleeper hold in on Cole, but he escapes for just a moment before gets taken down by the champ, who goes right back to work on the hand and arm of Cole, who gets back to a vertical base…but the champ just takes him right back down! MJF catches Cole with a pumphandle driver, but only gets a two count!

MJF taunts the crowd as he stares Cole down, before going to the corner and emulating a certain Kid who breaks hearts…but any chance of some music to the chin gets cut off with a superkick by Adam Cole instead! MJF gets rocked with it, and goes to the corner to recover before going after Cole again…but Cole takes him right down again! Cole with an enziguri and a backstabber, but only gets a nearfall on the champ for his efforts.

Cole heads to the corner, looking for Panama Sunrise on the champ…but MJF takes him to the ropes, dropping the arm on the top! MJF looks for a Heatseeker but it gets countered, only for MJF to hit a shoulder breaker…but Cole reverses a second one for a nearfall! Cole looks to set up for the Boom but is cut off by the champ…who gets caught in a backbreaker by Cole for a nearfall! Cole and MJF end up on the apron after this, with Cole bringing the champ to his feet…but MJF reverses a German suplex, looking for a tombstone piledriver!

Cole narrowly escapes, heading to the top rope for a Panama Sunrise…only to be reversed into a tombstone piledriver by the champ right onto the apron! Both men are down on the floor outside, and both look worse for wear as we go to picture-in-picture!

Picture-in-Picture: We get a replay of the tombstone piledriver as Cole and MJF are seen trying to recover, the referee checking on both men until MJF makes it back to his feet. The champ brings Cole back to the ring, but is only to get a nearfall. This seems to frustrate MJF as he goes back on the attack, taking Cole to the corner before going after his arm once again. The champ alternates between this and driving a boot to the throat as we come back!

Cole gets to the middle of the ring but is taunted by the champ with more offense and remarks, before Cole starts to fight back. The two start trading blows until MJF gets the upper hand…only to take a pump kick by Cole! MJF stops a rolling elbow strike but takes a couple kicks to the face, only to take Cole down to the canvas with a lariat!

MJF manages to drape an arm over Cole, but the pin is reversed into a crossface by Cole! MJF rolls out of it, locking in Salt of the Earth but Cole escapes the armbar! Cole locks in an ankle lock on the champ now, but MJF is able to roll out before locking in a crossface of his own on Cole, who struggles to get to the ropes to escape. Cole is inches away from the ropes before MJF grabs the free arm, locking it…but he can’t grab the foot of Cole, which reaches the bottom rope to force a break!

MJF tries to go for a Heatseeker, but Cole escapes…but he cannot escape a second one from the champ, who gets a close nearfall as a result! We hear an announcement regarding time as MJF leaves the ring now, clearing off a nearby table with bad intentions as he grabs Cole to bring him to the outside. The champ lays Cole out on the table before climbing to the top turnbuckle, launching himself to drive Cole through the table on the outside!

Both men are once again down on the outside as the ref checks on both men…until MJF tells him to start the count, rushing back to the ring as he looks for a countout victory! The ref begins the count as the doctor checks on Cole, who is crawling toward the ring right up until the count of nine before managing to slide in! This shocks the champ, who looks nearly infuriated as Cole struggles to get back to his feet…before catching MJF with a superkick on the apron, followed by a straightjacket German suplex right onto the hardest part of the ring!

The ref checks on Cole again, but he is back to the corner and climbing up for a Panama Sunrise…only for the champ to drop to the canvas and roll away. Cole gives chase, and gets a double foot stomp to the back of Cole! MJF starts arguing with the ref about the ten count earlier, only to get rolled up by Cole for a nearfall until he gets shoved off right onto the ref!

With the ref down, MJF escapes to the outside to grab his World title, but as he sees the ref starting to get up he tosses it to Cole, looking to steal a DQ win as he drops to the canvas…but the ref falls again, meaning the ruse doesn’t get to work! Cole has a laugh about this before hitting MJF with the title, tossing it aside before hitting the Boom on the champ!

Cole goes for the cover as the ref makes the count…but MJF narrowly manages to kick out! Cole slowly gets to his feet, setting the champ up before looking to hit the Boom again…but MJF drops down to the canvas before he can do so! Cole goes back to him, bringing him up…but MJF distracts the ref enough to hit a low blow on Cole instead!

The ref goes back to check on Cole as MJF sneakily slips on his ring, looking for the final blow on Cole…but the ref catches him with it! This gives Cole an opening as he hits a superkick, followed by the Panama Sunrise AND the Boom! He brings the champ onto his back and makes the cover. The ref makes the count, but only gets to just after the two when the bell rings! It finally sets in as Justin Roberts makes the announcement that the time limit has expired, meaning this match has ended in a draw!

Result: Time Limit Draw

Cole is not thrilled about this, naturally, and grabs a microphone from ringside to make a demand to the champ: five more minutes! MJF just stares Cole down, a wicked smirk on his face as he escapes the ring with his championship and heads up the ramp.

Video Package: CM Punk is ready and eager for his return to AEW for the debut episode of AEW Collision on June 17!

Back at ringside, Renee Paquette welcomes Sammy Guevara to the ring to speak in his first appearance since Double or Nothing. Sammy’s music hits, and he makes his way to the ring to a big reaction from the crowd. Renee brings up Double or Nothing and the announcement of Taymelo’s pregnancy before asking what’s been going on.

Sammy thanks Renee for the time out here, bringing up the recent announcement that the young couple is having a baby girl, before talking up the possibility of having his family by his side and having the AEW World Championship. Sammy says before he can do all that, he has to make some tough decisions…but before he can elaborate, Darby Allin’s music hits as he makes his way to the ring.

Darby has a microphone of his own as he gets in the ring, congratulating Sammy on the baby girl before addressing what happened at Double or Nothing. He says it sounds like the people are starting to love Sammy again, to which the Washington crowd agrees…but Darby asks if Sammy is gonna stand on his own two feet, or if he’s gonna keep standing in the shadow of the J.A.S. He wants to ask Sammy this again, but he thinks he has the answer.

It seems as though Chris Jericho might have an answer, however, as his music hits, bringing the Ocho down to the ring next. Jericho is clearly not happy as he demands his music gets cut off, yelling at Darby to shut up and stop laughing before he stares down Guevara. He says Sammy hasn’t so much as asked for Jericho’s help going into Double or Nothing, and he would be AEW World Champion. Sammy responds by saying if Jericho had called him, maybe he wouldn’t have lost to Adam Cole…twice.

Jericho says he’ll give Sammy another chance, telling him to apologize right now….but Sammy refuses. Jericho says maybe Sammy needs to remember the dynamic and hierarchy of the JAS, and maybe Le Sex Gods needs to reform so Sammy understands who the boss is. Darby says Jericho calls himself the Wizard, but when he gets in the ring the magic is gone. Jericho challenges Darby to a 2-on-1 match with Sammy, but Darby says he’s not really alone…which brings out STIIIIIIIIIING to a big pop from the crowd.

Sting arrives with a bat of his own as he heads to the ring, countering the one Jericho has in his hand as the Icon gets into the ring. Sting and Jericho stare each other down for a moment, until Jericho points a bat right at the throat of the Icon…to which Sting responds in kind! Jericho and Sting knock each other’s bats out of the way before Jericho escapes the ring, with Sammy just watching on as Jericho heads up the ramp.

Wardlow starts to celebrate until a video shows on the screen, some audio issues cutting off bits of it but we catch enough to know that Christian Cage has answered Wardlow’s challenge to Luchasaurus for the title…a match that is set for the debut of AEW Collision, but what will happen if Wardlow’s “new daddy” isn’t there to help him? This reveals a beaten-up Arn Anderson, which angers the champ as he heads up the ramp!

This brings out Daniel Garcia, who addresses Cassidy before looking to challenge Shibata to a rematch for the ROH Pure Championship. This leads to a very Orange Cassidy approach to booking, as the AEW International Champion challenges ZSJ and Garcia to a tag match next week against Cassidy and Shibata before he walks off.

Back at ringside, Skye Blue makes her way to the ring for a Women’s World Championship match she earned last Friday on Rampage. Out next is the champion Toni Storm and this match is underway!
