AEW Dynamite Buffalo, New York
The commentators are Taz, Tony Schiavone and Excalibur.
– Tonight is AEW Dynamite, the show starts with the commentators greeting and we see pictures of MJF’s return to All Out last Sunday. We then find Tony Khan behind the scenes. Khan says he’s being forced to vacate trios titles and the AEW world title. New Trios champions will be crowned in tonight’s Best Friends match against Death Triangle. The world title is the most prestigious in sport, so we will host a Grand Slam tournament to crown the new champion. Adam Page, Guevara, Danielson, Allin and others will compete in this tournament. A new champion will be crowned at the AEW Grand Slam on September 21st. Khan promises AEW will put on a good show and the company will be at its best.
– MJF enters the ring to a standing ovation. MJF says the devil is back. MJF Says That, Number One: Who’s excited to see MJF? The crowd agrees. MJF says he loves Buffalo, Buffalo’s top QB is Josh Allen. MJF says the last time we saw him he must have said some offensive things but we can all agree he didn’t mean it, it was a joke. He loves AEW, he will never leave this place. MJF releases an “AEW” chant. MJF says he didn’t mean it when he insulted the fans, without us there would be no MJF. MJF says he needs to talk about the big elephant in the room and no he’s not talking about the big elephant ringside, she’s beautiful, they’ll see each other tonight. MJF says world title is vacant, new champion to be crowned, we all agree he knows a man who deserves that championship, him. MJF says he works smart, so he won’t make the tournament because his token guarantees him a title shot whenever he wants. MJF says Tony pays him a lot of money too. MJF says we think it’s a dark time, but no. The company needs a leader, a smart Jewish man with a name that starts with an M that splits the ocean in two, to bring people to the new land. He is better than Moses. He will win the AEW World Title because he is MJF and better than us. Jon Moxley’s music interrupts MJF and he steps into the ring.
Moxley says MJF talks shit. MJF asks if Jonathan (Moxley) doesn’t think he needs to be here in Buffalo? Of grotesque poor people who have the worst soccer team in the United States? Josh Allen is bad! MJF says maybe he should win the title to get it into a real wrestling company, with real fans and real wrestlers like his good friend Cody Rhodes did. And maybe he should work with a real boss, the only good khan in this business. Not to mention his personal hero, The Game, which would be good for business. Moxley swings MJF’s microphone to the floor. Moxley says it’s not the time or place, he’s not in the mood. MJF has to leave the ring now or he’ll help him! The two prepare for a fight, but MJF eventually decides to go backstage.
Moxley says he’s not in the mood, he’s angry, he’s humiliated. Many things, but above all because he no longer has the world title. The world title means a lot to him and to the people. The passion for the sport, the passion for the business, the passion for the guys behind the scenes, the passion for the fans here and at home. The title represents the heroes during the pandemic, the dream when they formed AEW and to show the world what wrestling is really about. It stands for the freedom to be what you want. It stands for being better than yesterday. It represents overcoming one’s demons. The title represents everything he loves about the business. But the fact remains that he lost on Sunday and it was his fault, he made mistakes. But he now has another chance to reclaim his place at the top of the mountain against Chris Jericho, the best in history, Bryan Danielson, a better wrestler than he will ever be, and youngsters like Darby Allin and Adam Page. Moxley says he’ll give it his all! It’s not only time to win, it’s time to become a legend.

– Tony Schiavone is backstage with the Jericho Appreciation Society to talk about the big All Out win. Jericho says it was huge against Bryan Danielson. He’s better than ever. In 2022 Chris Jericho found the fountain of youth and he drinks from it. That’s why he beat Danielson at his own game, he’s the best wrestler, the best entertainer in history. Jericho says he’ll beat Danielson again next week for that reason and Go to the Grand Slam to become World Champion for the 8th time. It’s his title, his company, his dressing room and no one can ever take it, EVER ! For JAS he has two little brothers, Sammy Guevara, who will face Darby Allin in this Friday’s tournament at Rampage. Guevara says he’s going to smack his little turtle ass. Jericho says Garcia will have his biggest game in his hometown tonight. He knows Garcia will win, but since Garcia decided to leave them alone on Sunday, they will leave him alone tonight. Garcia must beat Yuta alone.
