AEW Dynamite Results | May 4, 2022

Jeff Hardy def. Bobby Fish—Owen Hart Foundation Qualifier

Adam Cole made for a great commentator/cheerleader throughout this match. Some gems from Cole included “squeeze, Bobby, squeeze!” and “you gotta move, Bobby, you gotta move!”

Jeff Hardy is the only qualifier in the Owen Hart Foundation Tournament who has actually had a match against Owen Hart. He’s my sentimental favorite.

The Blackpool Combat Club def. The Butcher, The Blade and Angelico

John Harbaugh was ringside, and it turns out he was Brian Pillman’s college roommate.

William Regal referred to Angelico as “Angelico,” pronouncing the G, ony to correct himself, and then later (thankfully) insist on calling him “Angelico” with a hard G.

Angelico’s nickname is “the Mexican submission wrestling specialist,” which could use a bit of editing.

Jon Moxley has added the RKO to his arsenal of offense.

The referee is always helpless to stop the Blackpool Combat Club’s triple submission.

Wardlow def. William Morrissey

Fans are conditioned, almost to a Pavlovian degree, to chant “Goldberg” when they see a big man walking to the ring with security. The same thing happens with Wardlow, who is accompanied by security (in handcuffs) with no music.

W. Morrissey was known as William Morrissey. Most of these fans didn’t know who W. Morrissey was until he walked through the curtain, then they popped when they found out it was Big Cass and chanted “how you doin?!” Fans then heckled Morrissey with chants of “we want Enzo/no we don’t!”

Morrissey was listed as Wardlow’s largest opponent ever.

Wardlow performed a moonsault and landed right on his feet. He’s a sneaky good high-flying, athletic wrestler when he has to be.

These fans went absolutely nuts for Wardlow’s moonsault, power bomb and post-match destruction of AEW security.

When Wardlow said he was going to the most magical place in the world, I thought he was going to say Stamford, Connecticut.

Hangman Adam Page Calls out CM Punk

Hangman Adam Page essentially cut a heel promo, calling out CM Punk’s “masturbatory Bret Hart tribute matches,” and I’m so glad somebody finally said it.

Following his promo, I now want Hangman Adam Page to defeat CM Punk and retain his AEW Championship. He’s great in this heel role and I hope AEW keeps going with it.

Chris Jericho def. Santana

Chris Jericho is now known as “The Wizard.”

Chris Jericho won this match after outside interference and very little enforcement from Aubrey Edwards, who was made to look helpless.

Brian Pillman Jr. Calls out House of Black

Julia Hart is now wearing facepaint under her eye patch and these fools in the Varsity Blondes don’t seem to have an inkling that she’s inevitably going to turn on them. Does she have to start showing up with a House of Black t-shirt to get the message?

As expected, Brian Pillman Jr. shouted out John Harbaugh during this segment.

Despite Pillman Jr. rallying the crowd with a spirited promo, there was absolutely no heat for this brawl until the House of Black turned their attention to Julia Hart, who surprisingly refused to turn heel.

Rey Fenix def. Dante Martin—Owen Hart Foundation Qualifier

Rey Fenix made the save for Julia Hart, which saved AEW time from doing an entrance.

This match was every bit as good as it seemed to be on paper, if not moreso. Their styles meshed like butter.

Thunder Rosa Calls out Serena Deeb

Thunder Rosa called out Serena Deeb, the new No. 1 Contender, in a rare promo for the new AEW women’s champion.

Serena Deeb got a babyface reaction by saying her and Thunder Rosa could make this the best women’s division in the entire world, a subtweet for Becky Lynch.

Deonna Purrazzo vs. Mercedes Martinez

This match didn’t start until around 6:50 p.m. PST as AEW gave limited time to two first-time main eventers on AEW Dynamite. Excalibur, with a straight face, said AEW will stick with this match for as long as they need to, even if it goes 60 minutes.

Ring announcer Bobby Cruise mistakenly referred to ROH interim women’s champion Mercedes Martinez as “one-half of the ROH Women’s champion.”

Deonna Purrazzo got heat for refusing to honor the code of honor with Mercedes Martinez.

Mercedes Martinez (somewhat) surprisingly won the undisputed ROH Women’s World Championship, and the match even went a couple minutes past 7:00 pm PST.
