AEW Dynamite Weekly for 03/01/23
All Atlantic Title Match
Orange Cassidy (c) vs. Big Bill
The match starts off with Orange Cassidy stepping down from Big Bill and taunting Bill to come to meet him on the outside. Big Bill chases him outside and back inside, just for Cassidy to go back in. This continues for a while as Big Bill is showing frustration. Cassidy goes face-to-face with Stokely Hathaway and takes away his shades but is able to duck Big Bill, who comes short of almost hitting Hathaway instead.
They finally go at it inside, with Cassidy running the ropes until Big Bill is able to catch him into a side slam. Big Bill follows with a splash in the corner before whipping Cassidy really hard into the other corner. Bill tries it again, but this time knocks Cassidy to the outside with a big boot. Big Bill starts clubbing Cassidy around the outside as Hathaway helps Bill move the timekeeper’s table to the bottom of the ramp.
Big Bill teases and chokeslams Cassidy into it, who escapes at first but Big Bill is able to catch him and choke slam him through the table. The referee allows this match to continue as we go to picture-in-picture.
After the picture-in-picture, Big Bill is in control, attacking Cassidy in the ring. Big Bill goes for a high boot a couple of times, but both times Cassidy falls to the floor until he rolls to the outside, where Danhausen is now there to assist him. Danhausen goes to put a curse on Hathaway, but Big Bill gets in the way and goes to chokeslam him on the apron.
Hathaway stops him and instead backhands Danhausen with the cast. Cassidy uses this distraction to hit a dope on Hathaway, but when he tries another one Big Bill catches him. Bill goes to chokeslam him, but Cassidy gets out and hits an Orange Punch to Big Bill’s knee, takes him down and goes back inside.
As Big Bill enters, he catches Cassidy, who was trying to do an Orange Punch but he hits a Stundog Millionaire, a DDT, and two Orange Punches. Cassidy goes to the top rope and hits a super Orange Punch to get the win.
Winner: AND STILL All-Atlantic Champion: Orange Cassidy
We see footage from last week of a bloody Jon Moxley after his victory over Evil Uno and says this taste like victory and life, and he’s all about living his life to the fullest and he’s a sick man.
He does this because he likes it, and it’s not something to be proud of or aspire to. He lives for this sh*t, and he’s not the kind of guy you want to go down a dark alley with when there’s only one of us coming out and asks Adam Page who he really thinks is going to come out.
He tells him to remember that Page wanted this, as he was trying to leave this alone. He talks about putting Page in the hospital and them calling it an accident, but when Moxley comes back from an injury, he goes and beats Page as Page got praised for it, and Moxley got nothing as they told him it was a fluke, it wasn’t real, and it didn’t count.
He mentions Page beating him with a wrestling move he learned in seventh grade. He calls Page a great man, but he isn’t the same animal as Moxley. And there is only room for one of these animals in AEW, and he will die to protect what’s his.
Trios Champions The Elite come out to their entrance, but right away, the lights go out, and when they come back on, the House Of Black are there holding the Trios Titles as The Elite are laid out.

8 Man Face Of The Revolution Ladder Match
Konosuke Takeshita vs. Ortiz vs. Komander vs. Action Andretti vs. Sammy Guevara vs. Powerhouse Hobbs vs. Eddie Kingston vs. AR Fox
Eddie Kingston & Ortiz start fighting on the outside before everybody starts heading to the outside and starts grabbing ladders. Kingston & Ortiz fight all the way up the ramp as Sammy Guevara attacks AR Fox with a ladder before setting it up in the corner. Action Andretti picks up a ladder, but Komander takes him out before Powerhouse Hobbs takes out Komander.
Hobbs starts tossing Komander and Fox against the ladders before going after Andretti. Guevara teases going in, but looks at Hobbs and just leaves instead. Konosuke Takeshita enters and goes at it with Hobbs, both trying to take the other man down. Takeshita dodges Hobbs as he goes crashing into the ladder, before hitting him with a German suplex.
Don Callis is seen backstage watching Takeshita. Takeshita & Guevara end up on the outside before they get hit with dives from Andretti & Fox. Komander walks the ropes from one corner to the other side before diving onto everybody else before we go to commercial break.
After the break, Fox hits Hobbs with a chair, but it has no effect as he drops Fox on top of a ladder. As everybody is laid out on the outside, Guevara goes to grab the ring before Andretti runs up to stop him and hits a Falcon Arrow on top of a ladder. Komander follows this with a Shooting Star Press on Fox on another ladder on the outside before he uses a bunch of ladders to go and reach for the ring.
Takeshita joins him there and hits a Blue Thunder Bomb from off the ladders. Insanity. Takeshita starts climbing, but Andretti springs in to join him on top of the ladder. Daniel Garcia runs out and takes them both down, tipping the ladder over, and keeps attacking Andretti.
Garcia & Guevara start setting up some ladders on chairs before placing Andretti on top of the ladder. Guevara climbs the top of the ladder and hits a senton to Andretti, crashing through the ladder. Garcia sets up another ladder and helps Guevara to climb up it.
Takeshita knocks the ladder off and takes Guevara down with a knee strike. Takeshita goes climbing the ladder, but Hobbs pounces the ladder, knocking Takeshita off before climbing the ladder to grab the ring.
Winner: AND #1 Contender To The TNT Title: Powerhouse Hobbs
After the match, Hobbs & Joe start to have a face-off before Wardlow joins in. Security goes to stop him as Joe escapes. Wardlow takes out the security as Hobbs watches, power bombing one of the guards onto the others off the ramp.
Renee Paquette is backstage with the Best Friends and say that Chuck Taylor & Trent Beretta are both not medically cleared to compete in tonight’s Casino Battle Royal. Danhausen says himself & Orange Cassidy can represent for the Best Friends instead. Paquette asks if Cassidy is okay after his match, and he says I don’t care.
AEW Dynamite Weekly for 03/01/23
Chris Jericho vs. Peter Avalon
The match starts off with Peter Avalon going after Chris Jericho then Jericho goes to retreat to the outside but Avalon follows him, hitting him with a tope. Back inside, Avalon stays in control, hitting Jericho with a pump kick for a two-count. Jericho comes right back and hits a Codebreaker for the win.
Winner: Chris Jericho
Jericho grabs the bat and takes out Avalon with it. Jericho continues attacking Avalon with it before Ricky Starks runs out to chase Jericho away. Jericho gets on the mic and says on Sunday, he’s going to beat the hell out of Starks 1 on 1, and just because the Jericho Appreciation Society can’t be there on Sunday doesn’t mean they can’t be here tonight. Jake Hager & Daniel Garcia run in and, along with Jericho, start attacking Starks. Hager & Garcia hold up Starks as Jericho hits him with the Judas Effect.
We go to Hangman Page, who seems to be in a barn, and talks about how Alex Reynolds asked him earlier if he’s afraid to lose to Jon Moxley. Page says he lost the world title, but Moxley can’t take away his friends, memory, feeling, and heart, and this Sunday, he takes everything away from Moxley.
He takes his spot at the top of the food chain, his pride, and he will be the man left standing. Moxley was right about him not enjoying violence and hating it, but this Sunday, he’ll be the most violent son of a bitch we’ve ever seen, as beating Moxley is the last glimmer of hope he has. There are only two ways out of Texas Death. Either you live, or you die, and he isn’t done living. After Sunday, Moxley will never be the same.
Renee Paquette is in the ring and brings out Christian Cage. Renee says it felt like things would finally be done between himself and Cage and asks what’s going on. Cage starts saying he hopes he never comes back to San Francisco for another ten years and talks about how he’s been embarrassing Perry.
Cage saw Perry talk about winning a singles championship this year and said it’ll happen over his dead body. Cage says he will win a singles championship in 2023, and that’s a fact. Cage says he’s been watching Perry’s match easily with quick roll-ups and asks if he wants to win a championship or beat someone for a championship.
Cage says he already knows the answer, as last week he had Cage dead to rights with the concerto, but he hesitated. So instead, Cage smashed Perry with the chairs and left him in a pool of his own blood & p*ss. Another thing that’s been bothering him is why Perry wants to win this championship so bad, and it’s to show it to his family and make some memes and likes.
Cage says that the problem with Perry’s generation is they treat his business like a video game. Nothing can do the things that Cage can do, as he is one of one. Cage treats his business like an ATM machine, and he’s not done milking it dry. This needs to end, so he has a challenge for Revolution, and it’s not for a wrestling match.
But a fight with no rules or regulations. The sad reality is that if Perry chooses to show up, he is just his father’s son, and just like his father, he is a no-talent hack. Perry continues talking trash about what Perry doesn’t have compared to him before the lights go out.
When they come back on, we go to a video of Jack Perry burying a hole outside mixed with highlights of the history between Perry and Cage. We then pan to a tombstone that says Christian Cage before we see Perry drive off.
Tony Schiavone is backstage with Women’s Champion, Jamie Hayter & Britt Baker, as they say, tonight, Saraya can watch two former Women’s Champions fight as she will never have that Women’s Title. They will be watching and looking out for her.

Renee Paquette is in the ring with Bryan Danielson and brings up a post from 2014 from MJF talking about pursuing his dream and mentioning Danielson and asking if this changes Danielson’s perception.
