AEW DYNASTY RESULTS (4/21/2024)

The “Zero Hour” pre-show kicks off with a video package for the Samoa Joe vs. Swerve Strickland title match. We shoot live inside the arena and Renee Paquette and RJ City are on the ramp. They talk about Joe vs. Swerve and then shift gears to the Bryan Danielson vs. Will Ospreay dream match for tonight.

From there, the talk switches to the AEW International Championship showdown between Roderick Strong and Kyle O’Reilly, as well as the Kazuchika Okada vs. PAC bout for the AEW Continental Championship, which Paquette accidentally calls the AEW Intercontinental Championship. It’s okay, someone else did that on AEW TV earlier this week, too.

A video package for the Chris Jericho vs. HOOK bout for the FTW title airs next. Paquette and RJ bring up Max Holloway’s knockout of Justin Gaethje and claim the FTW title is the original BMF title. We hear loud “Who’s House?” / “Swerve’s House!” chants in the background throughout a lot of Paquette and RJ’s talk. The talk switches to Toni Storm vs. Thunder Rosa for the women’s title.

Matt Sydal vs. Trent Beretta

After they run down some more matches and air some more “road to” countdown-style video packages, Paquette and RJ send us down to the ringside area, where Excalibur, Taz and Tony Schiavone take over as we get ready for our first match of the evening. The theme for Matt Sydal hits and out comes the veteran high-flyer.

We hear The Best Friends theme next and out comes Trent Beretta to a ton of boos. The bell sounds and we’re officially off-and-running with our first live in-ring action of the evening. A “We want Sue!” chant breaks out as Trent dominates the early offensive action. Sydal comes off the top-rope right into a side-suplex from Trent that dumps Sydal right on the back of his neck.

Some more back-and-forth action ensues and then we see Trent finish this one up with a submission, which he doesn’t let go of after getting the tap. Eventually, Chuck Taylor runs out to make the save. Trent gets on the mic and says Chuck is being a prick. He’s giving him until Wednesday to let him know where he stands.

Danielson yells that he’s gonna kick Ospreay’s f’ing head in, which the crowd says with him. He begins to deliver on that promise and then transitions into the LeBelle Lock. Ospreay seems out of it, but keeps hanging in there. Danielson transitions into a triangle choke. Ospreay is stuck, but powers up, only to fade back down as Danielson mixes in elbows with the triangle. In a last ditch effort, Ospreay power bombs his way out of it. Fans chant “Holy sh*t! Holy sh*t!” as this match starts to hit next-level awesome, as you would expect from these two.

The two crawl towards each other and trade headbutts like Junkyard Dog. They trade strikes from their knees back to their feet. Ospreay goes for an Os-Cutter but Danielson catches him on the way down with his Busaiku Knee. They each end up in opposing corners. Ospreay takes his arm pad off. Danielson smirks at him. They charge at each other, but Ospreay hits a big move for a wild crowd reaction. He follows that up with another trademark Tiger Driver spot for the pin fall victory, ending an instant classic match. Amazing stuff from these two, delivering on the dream match hype. This, along with O’Reilly-Strong and Okada-PAC were off the charts awesome. There is some concern over Danielson’s condition afterwards.

Winner: Will Ospreay
