AEW Dynamite Results
Winter is coming, according to AEW. It arrived on Wednesday night and it was a stacked card. There was a Dynamite Diamond Battle Royale, Chris Jericho facing Frankie Kazarian, and Kenny Omega challenging Jon Moxley for the AEW Championship. How would it all shake out? Here are the results from Wednesday’s Dynamite:
- Orange Cassidy & MJF are the final two in the Dynamite Diamond Battle Royale and will meet next week to determine the winner
- Chris Jericho def. Frankie Kazarian
- Dr. Britt Baker def. Leyla Hirsch
- Cody Rhodes & Darby Allin def. Ricky Starks & Powerhouse Hobbs
- Kenny Omega def. Jon Moxley (c) to win the AEW World Championship
There are two massive things you need to get from this week’s Dynamite. The first is this: Sting is All Elite. He arrived after Cody Rhodes & Darby Allin won their tag match, and did size up Allin briefly. Is he a face or a heel? Will Sting actually wrestle? Lots of exciting options await now for the Stinger in what should be his last run.

Finally, we have a new AEW World Champion. The Cleaner Kenny Omega has won the AEW title, but he didn’t do it in the cleanest of ways. Don Callis was on commentary, and provided a distraction for Omega to hit Moxley with a microphone. A series of V-Triggers and a One Winged Angel later, and Omega was the new champion. Leaving the arena in a rush, Callis said Omega would explain his actions on Tuesday. That’s right – Omega will be on Impact Wrestling next week.

An Impact-AEW working relationship? Omega as a heel? So many exciting developments and I expect Impact to get a massive ratings bump.
NXT Results: War Games Go-Home Show
We are just days away from NXT War Games show, and NXT packed the card this week. Shotzi Blackheart battled Raquel Gonzalez in a ladder match for a War Games advantage. What else would happen on the final show before Sunday’s show? Here are the results:
- Leon Ruff & Damian Priest def. Raul Mendoza & Santos Escobar
- Cameron Grimes def. August Grey
- Jake Atlas def. Tony Nese
- Imperium vs Grizzled Young Veterans goes to a no-contest
- Shotzi Blackheart def. Raquel Gonzalez in a ladder match to win the War Games advantage for her team.
In a rare move, the babyface women’s team has the advantage in Sunday’s War Games match. Her final member of the team has been confirmed as Io Shirai, making for a formidable foursome in the War Games match. This should be an amazing contest.
