AEW Dynamite aired this week after two weeks of New Year’s Smash.

1. Hangman Page and The Dark Order def. Chaos Project and TH2

The match took place in honor of -1’s birthday. A brawl broke out before the match started after Luther disrespected -1. The Dark Order and Page managed to come out on top after Reynolds pinned Serpentico.

Post-match, -1 dished out a kendo stick shot on Serpentico, and emulated his late father by throwing papers on Dark Order for celebrating his birthday three days late. Page refused to join the Dark Order and left after apologizing.

Backstage: Chris Jericho seemed confident that the tag-match later in the night will strengthen the Inner Circle, and he will come out on top along with MJF.

Sting and Darby Allin headed to the ring, as the Hall of Famer gave props to Allin. Taz and his squad appeared on the big screen and threatened Sting, who teased a match with the heels.

The Young Bucks headed to Kenny Omega’s house, but Don Callis informed them that Omega won’t be joining. Bucks seemed annoyed as Callis tried to keep them away from Omega by offering them a check. They ended up beating up Callis to end the segment.

2. Cody def. Peter Avalon

Cody vowed to win in under a minute but got distracted by Jade Cargill’s music. Avalon took advantage but Cody ended up winning the match after locking in the figure-four

Backstage: FTR spoke about being the highest-ranked team in the division before Jungle Express interrupted. Harwood challenged Jungle Boy to a singles match next week and shook hands on it.

3. Jon Moxley def. Nick Comoroto

Comoroto gave a good fight and it wasn’t totally a squash, as Moxley ended up winning after applying the sleeper hold.

Post-match, Moxley continued to keep his sights set on Omega, and said he couldn’t care where Omega brought his friends from, Moxley will always be standing tall.

Backstage: Eddie Kingston said he doesn’t prepare for his matches, ahead of his bout against Lance Archer next week. Jake Roberts and Archer appeared and asked him to keep Butcher and Blade behind and see how he fares all alone.

Backstage: Omega saw a beat-up Callis, who mentioned Nick and Matt. Omega got frustrated as Callis kicked the cameramen out of the room.

4. Private Party and Matt Hardy def. Top Flight and Matt Sydal

The two high-flying teams and Matt Hardy went at it, with Hardy and his men coming out on top. Kassidy hit Dante with a chair shot with the referee distracted, and Quen delivered a shooting star press to win the match. Post-match, the winners celebrated as Hardy hit Twist of Fate on a couple of guys.

Backstage: MJF talked to the rest of the Inner Circle, and said that the match is on Jericho’s command, and not his. Sammy Guevera got in his face but was held back by other members.

5. Penelope Ford def. Leyla Hirsch

Chuck Taylor accompanied Miro, Kip Sabian, and Ford as their butler to the ring. Ford prevailed with the help of distractions as usual, after hitting a pump kick to Hirsch.

Post-match, Miro asked ‘Charles’ for an update. He told Taylor to leave Cassidy, as Miro is his best friend now. Taylor sadly agreed as Cassidy left ringside annoyed.

Backstage: The Good Brothers randomly beat up Penta, and Omega joined in on the fun. He choked out Penta with a cable as Callis enjoyed the work of his men.

6. Chris Jericho and MJF def. Santana/Ortiz, Jake Hager/Sammy Guevara

Yet another intra-Inner Circle match to determine the official tag team of the group took place in the main event. Tension continued to exist within the group, as MJF rolled up Guevara to win the match along with Jericho.
