AEW Dynamite Unveils Explosive Results: A Detailed Recap – May 10, 2023
Oh, do buckle up, because we’re about to dive into the world of wrestling, where grown men in tiny pants throw each other around a ring for our entertainment. Tonight, aew dynamite results may 10, blasting onto your screens at 8 pm ET on TNT. I know, I can hardly contain myself either.
So, they’re setting up the ring in the Little Caesar’s Arena in Detroit, a city known for… well, not much, but they do have an arena. Our main event? Kenny Omega and Jon Moxley, two fellas who’ve been arguing over who’s got the bigger… ego for years, are going to settle it like grown-ups – by locking themselves in a steel cage. How delightfully civilised!
Get your spandex ready for more
But don’t think that’s all. Orange Cassidy, a man whose wrestling persona is so laid back he’s practically horizontal, is defending his International title against Daniel Garcia. And let’s not forget the Trios champs House of Black, who are putting their belts on the line against Bandido & Best Friends. I mean, who needs enemies with friends like these?
Then we have Anna Jay vs. Julia Hart in a ‘No Holds Barred’ affair. Sounds scandalous, doesn’t it? Claudio Castagnoli and Rey Fenix will be going head-to-head in a Double Jeopardy match. The winner gets a shot at the loser’s title. It’s all very confusing, but I’m sure it’ll make sense when they start hitting each other.
Oh, and apparently, the AEW Tag champs FTR are going to respond to Jeff Jarrett & Jay Lethal’s challenge. Can’t wait to hear what they have to say. And Christian Cage is also going to share some pearls of wisdom about his TNT title plans… and more!
So, pop back here at 8 pm ET, and we’ll have a live blog kicking off as soon as the show starts on TNT. It’ll be below this line here.
There you go, enjoy the show! Or don’t. I’m not your mother.
AEW Dynamite results may 10
Claudio Castagnoli vs. Rey Fenix (Double Jeopardy Match)
here we go. Claudio Castagnoli versus Rey Fenix in a “Double Jeopardy Match”. Now, I’m not entirely sure what’s at risk here. Their health insurance, perhaps?
So, I stroll in and Claudio’s having a breather, probably thinking about what he’ll have for dinner. Rey, however, decides it’s the perfect time for a dive. Can’t blame the lad, really. But Claudio catches him, showing off his reflexes, and gives him a good old suplex over the barricade. It’s always nice to see some audience participation.
They toddle back inside, Claudio’s got his wind back and lands a big lariat. Only manages to cover for two, though. I mean, we’ve all had days like that, haven’t we?
Next, they’re back outside where Claudio press slams him over the barricade. It’s like watching a very violent game of tennis. And then, wouldn’t you know it, we go to a break.
Back from the adverts and we’ve got strikes over the ropes. Claudio pulls off a Karelin lift off the top… but no! Rey says, “Not today, mate,” and hits a rolling thunder Ace Crusher, followed by a moonsault to the floor. Bit showy, but we’ll let him have it.
Back inside, Claudio tries for a Ricola Bomb. But Rey’s having none of it and reverses into a rolling sunset flip powerbomb. Well, that’s a mouthful.
Both of them are down, but Rey’s not finished. He delivers a superkick for two. He tries a fireman’s carry, but Claudio has other ideas. He counters with an ALPAMARE WATERSLIDE and gets a NEARFALL. I didn’t know we were marking this out of ten, but there you go.
Claudio Castagnoli wins by pinfall with the Ricola Bomb. Maybe next time, Rey.
Then we cut backstage, where Miro’s being interviewed. But he’s not in the mood for a chat and simply walks into Tony Khan’s office.
Then, Maxwell Jacob Friedman starts comparing the Pillars to the Beatles. I mean, who hasn’t done that at some point? Sammy is Ringo, Jungle Boy is George, Darby is John, and he himself is Paul. Big claim, but we’ll let him dream. He says his reign of terror has just begun.
And with that, we’re off to another break. I can hardly wait. aew dynamite results may 10, hope you are enjoying the show.
Back from Adverts
And we’re back from the adverts. Oh, the anticipation! We’re treated to a lovely little hype reel for the main event. It’s like a trailer for a film you’re already watching.
Enter FTR, making their entrance and grabbing the mic like it’s the last sausage roll at Greggs. Dax Harwood, the cheeky chappie, invites their mate Mark Briscoe to come down because they have an apology to make. Now, I’m not one to judge, but I bet he’s done something embarrassing at the Christmas party.
Suddenly, it’s a full house with Jeff Jarrett, Jay Lethal, Satnam Singh, and Sonjay Dutt making an appearance. Dutt, ever the charmer, tells FTR they have one job today, and that’s to accept their challenge. No pressure, lads.
In comes Mark Briscoe, the voice of reason, who tells everyone to calm down. He’s got news from his good pal Tony Khan. Apparently, at Double or Nothing, he’s going to be the special guest referee for Jay Lethal and Jeff Jarrett versus FTR! I bet his mum’s proud.
There’s a toast to make it all official, but Sonjay, the party pooper, spits his in FTR’s face. It all kicks off and Briscoe has to pull them apart. In the kerfuffle, poor Dax DDTs Mark Briscoe by accident. It’s like a really violent episode of EastEnders.
Backstage, Renee Paquette is interviewing Chris Jericho. Jericho’s got a bone to pick with everyone celebrating that Adam Cole “got the best of him”. He’s got a court order that says they can’t be in the same building at the same time. It’s like a break-up, but with paperwork.
Roderick Strong rolls up, like a bad penny. He’s got Adam Cole’s back and says he’s no coward. He challenges Jericho to a Falls Count Anywhere. Jericho accepts, but Strong’s one step ahead and passes him a court order of his own. Jericho’s army, the JAS, are banned from the building next week. It’s like a game of legal tug-of-war. aew dynamite results may 10!
Renee Paquette is waiting outside Tony Khan’s office for Miro, but who should roll up? Thunder Rosa. Plot twist! And with that cliffhanger, we’re off to another break. I know, I can hardly stand it either.
“Red Death” Daniel Garcia vs. Orange Cassidy (c) (AEW International Championship)
Back from commercial, we’re treated to a hype reel for Sammy Guevara. I’m sure his mum thinks he’s special.
Tony Khan pops in for a chat, promising a great show tonight. He says there are stars lined up in the back, itching to wrestle. It’s like a conga line of pain. He also hints at a ‘huge’ announcement next week. I’m on the edge of my seat, Tony.
Now we have the AEW International Championship with “Red Death” Daniel Garcia versus Orange Cassidy. Cassidy pulls off a waistlock takedown and a standing switch. He’s clearly been practising. Garcia manages to ride him and even pulls off a little taunt. It’s all going swimmingly until Garcia snaps his arm over the top rope. Ouch.
Orange isn’t down for long though. He pulls off a suicide dive, big crossbody, and even ducks a lariat. But Garcia cuts him off. There’s a bit of a scuffle before they head to another break.
Back from the adverts, we have Garcia with a superplex and a roll through. It’s like watching a very angry ballet. There’s a punch-up in the middle of the ring, Orange gets a nearfall off a Beach Break! Garcia counters with a boot and a piledriver. It’s all very exciting.
But Orange Cassidy manages to win by pinfall with a seatbelt pin. Good for him.
There’s a video package of dueling promos between Team DMD and the Outcasts. A bit of light relief.
Christian Cage and Luchaaurus make their entrance. Tony Schiavone is there to ask Christian about the AEW TNT Championship. Christian says he’s #1 contender because he’s Christian Cage. It’s as good a reason as any.
He also decides to have a pop at Arn Anderson, Wardlow’s wrestling dad. He calls him Ric Flair’s lapdog. It’s like a soap opera with more spandex.
Finally, we get a hype reel for Darby Allin. Because you can never have too many hype reels.
Anna Jay vs. Julia Hart (No Disqualification Match)
Jay decides to kick things off with a bang, blindsiding Hart with a steel chair. You know, just to keep things interesting. The ring quickly fills with, well, junk. Hart’s not having any of it and sends Jay to the floor before introducing her to the barricade. It’s all very friendly.
There’s a bit of a kerfuffle with a kendo stick before Anna sends Hart to the floor. There’s a snap suplex on the floor before Hart introduces Anna to the post and the timekeeper’s table. Then we’re off to another break. You’ve got to love the suspense.
Back from the adverts, Hart throws Jay into the turnbuckles and they’re back on the floor. Hart starts pulling chairs from under the ring. Anna hits a Gory Bomb into the pile of chairs. It’s like watching a violent episode of Changing Rooms.
Back in the ring, there’s a fight over a suplex before Hart manages to win with the Hartless Lock. What a surprise.
Backstage, Renee Paquette is interviewing Best Friends about their trios title match. Orange Cassidy thinks he can fit three more belts in his backpack. I’m not sure he’s thought this through. Trent Beretta is enthusiastic about their prospects. Chuck Taylor is asked to pick their final rule, and they settle on “all witches are banned from ringside”. Well, that’s one way to keep the mother-in-law away.
Best Friends and Bandido make their entrance and we’re off to another break. I know, the suspense is killing me too.
Best Amigos (Bandido, Chuck Taylor, & Trent Beretta) vs. House of Black (Brody King, Buddy Matthews, & Malakai Black) (c) (AEW World Trios Championship)
Black and Bandido decide to kick things off, circling each other like a pair of wary alley cats. There’s a tijeras from Bandido and a snapmare from Malakai. Bandido runs right into a kitchen sink knee! A quick tag to Taylor, and it’s like watching a tag team ballet, but with more punching.
Then it’s off to another commercial break. Maybe time to make a cup of tea?
Back from the adverts, Trent is fighting alone like some kind of wrestling Rambo. Bandido gets a tag and goes off the top like he’s auditioning for Cirque du Soleil. Taylor takes a knee, and we’re treated to Dante’s Inferno… and it’s all over!
House of Black win, and we’re left wondering what just happened.
We see that Kyle Fletcher of Aussie Open has laid Orange Cassidy out backstage. I mean, where else would he do it?
The hype reel for “Jungle Boy” Jack Perry kicks in, and commentary is hyping up the next week of shows like there’s no tomorrow. Then it’s on to the hype reel for “Absolute” Ricky Starks vs. “Switchblade” Jay White.
The cage is lowered, and it’s off to another commercial break. You’ve got to love the pacing.
Back from the break, the Elite and the Blackpool Combat Club are having a bit of a tiff on the floor before the match begins. The Young Bucks take Wheeler YUTA out and throw him off the stage! Bryan Danielson gets up from commentary and stalks after them. Nick Jackson gets in Danielson’s face, but Bryan warns him to go pay attention to his brother. It’s like a high stakes episode of EastEnders with more spandex.
Jon Moxley vs. Kenny Omega (Steel Cage Match)
Finally, Omega deigns to join Moxley in the cage and we get a bell, like some official signal to commence the madness.
They start off with a nice friendly exchange of forearms, before Kenny decides it’s time for a barbed wire wrapped chair. I mean, who doesn’t love a good bit of interior design? Moxley, apparently. He responds with a kiss for the camera as his forehead decides it’s a good time to start impersonating a waterfall.
Omega, ever the entertainer, goes for a springboard, but ends up getting up close and personal with the steel cage. Moxley decides to return the favour with the barbed wire chair, causing Bryan Danielson to burst into laughter. And just when you think it couldn’t get any crazier, we have Omega doing a body slam on the wire. I mean, who needs a wrestling ring when you have barbed wire, right?
And then, just when you thought it was safe, Moxley decides to pull a superplex into the barbed wire chair. It’s like a wrestling version of the grand finale at a fireworks display. And then, wouldn’t you know it, it’s time for another commercial break. The timing is impeccable.
We’re back from the commercial, and it’s like we never left. Moxley has Omega’s cheek fishhooked with the turnbuckle hook, and then it’s off to Omega doing a neckbreaker over the knee. Mox decides to go for a sleeper hold, but Omega has other plans, driving him into broken glass with a senton. You’ve got to give it to these guys, they sure know how to put on a show.
And then it’s time for Moxley to get up close and personal with the cage wall, courtesy of Omega. But, plot twist! Don Callis climbs into the cage, Omega goes for One-Winged Angel, but Callis decides it’s time for a screwdriver intervention.
And that, as they say, is that. Moxley wins by pinfall.
After the match, referee Paul Turner seems to be struggling with the concept of leaving, but hey, who wouldn’t want to stay and soak up this madness? Callis and Omega share a touching moment, a few whispers, a forehead kiss, a gentle shove to the mat. It’s like a twisted wrestling version of a soap opera.
And that, folks, is the show. aew dynamite results may 10!! Thank goodness for that. I’m not sure how much more excitement I could have handled.
Final thoughts? Well, if you’ve ever wondered what it would look like if Mad Max and WWE had a baby, this was it. A spectacular circus of chaos, a veritable feast of lunacy. It was like watching a car crash – you didn’t want to look, but you just couldn’t tear your eyes away. Wrestling purists might be sobbing into their cornflakes, but for the rest of us, it was just another Wednesday night. Bring on the next bout of insanity, aew dynamite results may 10. We’re ready… I think.
