AEW Dynamite Results – May 20, 2020
It’s Wednesday night, we’re in Jacksonville Florida at Daly’s Plaza, and it’s time for AEW Dynamite! Our announcers are Excalibur, Jim Ross, and Tony Schiavone, and it’s the go home show before Saturday’s Double or Nothing Pay Pert View.
THe show begins as a Limo shows up and it’s time for the Inner Circle to be interviewed by Alex Marvez. They say they are coming to attack the Elite and as they walk by, Ortiz takes Alex’s tie pin and say it is a problem worth something as he carries it off. In the arena, we get a rundown of the matches tonight and a good look at the people at ringside.
We start off hot, with 10 from the Dark Order with Mr. Brodie Lee, who has the world title, as well as other members of the Dark Order. Lee grabs a microphone to address the viewers at home. He asks the crowd to be quiet because the adults are speaking, and he asks 10 to take a knee. Lee explains that he relates to the viewers at home because he is a man. The difference between the old Dark Order and the new Dark level is that he operates at an elite level and he is a Lion. Saturday, he has to win in order to pay off the loyalty and love of his followers. He tells 10 it is his moment to shine and he is a knight of the Dark Order and he is to hurt Jon Moxley for him.
As Mr. Brodie Lee and his men leave, Mox comes in from the outside and makes his way to the ring.
Jon Moxley vs 10
Mox attacks first with a high knee, and ends his attack with a shoulder capture suplex. He then drops 10 with a modified brain buster. Mox stomps on 10 and chokes him in the corner. While Mox is arguing with the ref, 10 attacks him from behind and follows it up with a pump kick, knocking Mox to the outside. 10 keeps up the attack outside the ring, ending with a drop on the apron and rolling Mox into the ring. Mox gets up but is brought down again with a modified bulldog and 10 covers for a 1 count. 10 drops an elbow and covers for a two count.
10 runs into a back elbow by Mox, and 10 is able to hit a spinebuster on Mox. Mox escapes a fireman’s carry and scored a stunner. We are told that 10 used to be Preston Vance as Mox nails him with a Gotch style piledriver. Mox goes in the corner to shout at Mr. Brodie Lee via the camera. He comes back for a paradigm shift and a pin for the three count and the win.
Your winner: Jon Moxley
Mox goes out of the ring, brings in a pair of chairs and puts 10’s arm in one of the chairs. Mox cuts a promo that Lee is trying to punk him out, and he gives Lee 10 seconds to bring back the title or he’ll break 10’s arm. Lee appears on the screen behind him, and says Mox does not make the shots. All Mox had to do was ask for his belt, but now, it’s personal. Everyone needs to make sacrifices, so he and the Dark Order are leaving.
Mox says he’ll see him Saturday and slams the second chair into the one on 10’s arm.
The announcer hyped the special on Friday night and the PPV.
MJF with Wardlow comes to the ring, much to the chagrin of Tony and to lead us into commercials.
As we come back, Marko Stunt is announced and comes to the ring by himself.
MJF vs Marko Stunt
Marko tosses his shirt at MJF, who ignores it. MJF mocks Stunt and allows him to try to slam him, and when he fails, MJF slams Marco. MJF allows Marko to strike him, and when they have no effect, he grabs Marco in a bear hug. Marco escapes by clapping his hands and battering MJF’s ears. Marko attempts a leap over and grabs the legs to bring MJF down, but MJF grabs Marko, and tosses him over the top with a belly to belly suplex.

Marko is able to shove MJF off, leaps off the top and flips MJF into the turnbuckle, face first.

Marko runs to leap into MJF, but MJF nails him with a strike. MJF follows up with a shoulder breaker and he locks Marco into the Salt of the Earth and Marko taps.
Your winner: MJF
MJF asks for a microphone and says Marko lasted longer than anyone thought he would, so he would let one of his rats give him a kiss. Then, he remembered so one would ever kiss his lips. Wardlow pulls up Marko and MJF says he can kiss his ring, and pinches Marco in the face. This brings out Jungle Boy and Luchasaurus for the save.
We got a video update of Cody and Lance Archer last week, and the announcers hype the match at Double or Nothing as Jack the Snake Roberts comes out and we go to commercial.
When we come back, Arn Anderson is on his way to the ring where a table is set up and Tony is there to moderate the discussion.
Jake starts and says it’s almost surreal as they have never been in the ring together. Jake says people have dreams and people have nightmares, but they aren’t real. Lance Archer is destroying everything in front of him. Cody has sacrificed his brother just so he doesn’t have to face Lance Archer. Lance is ready to rip the heart out of Cody. Jake then asks Arn if they let him out of the home this week, since we haven’t seen him, and he’s looking thick.
Arn says that Jake almost made him believe him. Arn says it would have been a dream match if they fought. Arn says if they told someone a pissant could pull a freight train, people would believe it because they are credible. Arn says he can see the evil coming off of Jake, and it used to frighten people. People used to be scared of Jake, but that’s all a distraction, what needs to be paid attention to is the evil in his eyes.
Jake says he’s been to hell and back, and he’s not scared of Arn. Arn says he wants to talk about Mike Tyson presenting the title, and Tyson gets free reign. Arn asked if Jake will throw his snake on Tyson? Jake says he promised Archer gets the first shot at Tyson. Jake was hoping Brandi would present the belt. Arn then says Cody says he doesn’t want to win for the money or prestige, Cody will do it because he has to. He’s a leader in the company who has made the company the product it is. Arn says he’s a vicious pr***, and the last thing he wants to say is he hopes the DDP yoga makes him limber, because he will hit a spinebuster on Jake and shove his head where the sun doesn’t shine.
The table is shoved aside and the Refs make sure they stay apart from each other.
