This week’s episode of AEW Dynamite opens up with an intro video.

We then go to a commercial break.
Back from the commercial break and Cody Rhodes makes his way down to the ring.
Tony Schiavone interviews him in the ring.
Cody reminds the fans that he can never challenge for the AEW Title again. Cody then says that last week wasn’t much better when he got attacked by The Blade and The Butcher. Cody then says that when he usually raises his hand up, the people who were there are no longer there. Cody then says that Dustin Rhodes is in a blood feud with the Inner Circle, Brandi Rhodes is cutting off the hair of women on the roster and MJF kicked him between the legs. Cody then says to The Butcher, The Blade and The Bunny that they could have just asked for a match, but he gets it. Cody then says that they can have a match whenever and they can even pick his partner.
Cody then switches his attention back to MJF and says that MJF says that he won’t wrestle Cody, but that won’t stand and he owes it to Cody to have a match. Cody then says that he remembers when he brought MJF along when he was told he was too short, a “bush league nWo Chris Jericho,” even someone who wore a fake scarf. Cody then says that he will offer up his Ford Black Ops, even an expensive watch gifted to him from Tony Khan, his red bottom shoes and some cash. Justin Roberts then heads into the ring with a briefcase with $50,000 in it. To prove it, he has Justin Roberts give a young fan in the front row a $100 bill. Cody then says that he is going to take out MJF and all he has to do is name his price, the fans want it and so does he, so “Let’s do this!”
We head backstage where Alex Marvez asks Joey Janela why he wants to face Jon Moxley tonight. Janela says that he wants to make a name for himself and he was one of the first to sign with the company, but since that time, he has been put on the back burner. Janela then reminds Moxley of their unsanctioned match at Fyter Fest, but tonight it counts and the lights are on. Janela then says that this time “You’ll have to kill me.” Moxley shows up during the interview, looks at Janela for a moment and says “Kids…” and walks off to send us to a commercial break.
Back from the commercial break and we get another video vignette of The Dark Order.
We see some unhappy guy on his computer signing up to join The Dark Order. We then cut to Evil Uno bringing him into the group in an outdoor ceremony at night. We then see the guy from the first couple of vignettes. He is asked if he will leave his loved ones behind for the group and he says yes. He is then asked what his motive is to be in the group, “I just wanted friends” is his response. Grayson then ends up kicking him in the face and the minions attack him.
“The Librarian” Leva Bates (w/ “The Librarian” Peter Avalon) and Nyla Rose then make their entrances for the next match of the evening.
Nyla Rose def. “The Librarian” Leva Bates via pinfall with the Beast Bomb. After the match, Nyla Rose hits another beast bomb on Leva Bates. She then looks for another one, but Shanna climbs to the top rope and hits a diving crossbody on Rose. Shanna then with a flurry of strikes and a superman elbow strike, but Nyla Rose finally stops her and hits a powerslam. Shanna was then looking to get some revenge from last week when Nyla Rose power-bombed her through a table during a fan meet and great. Nyla Rose then heads out and brings a table into the ring. Nyla Rose ends up putting a referee through a table, then powerbombs Shanna on him. The cameras then cut to Britt Baker who was watching from the crowd, doing the same pose she did at NXT TakeOver: WarGames when NXT Champion Adam Cole got dropped through two tables off the top of the cage by Tommaso Ciampa.
We then go to a commercial break.
Back from the commercial break and Le Champion Chris Jericho makes his entrance flanked by Jake Hager (who has a bottle of the Little Bit of the Bubbly and a clipboard with him).
Jericho rips on the crowd a bit to get things started. Jericho then says that he has to have one more match to close out the year, but he gets to pick his opponent. Jericho then says “I put together a little list.” The crowd then pops. Jericho then says “calm down, it’s not 2016.” Jericho then shows off “The Lexicon of Le Champion.” Jericho then runs through a bunch of names that he could face, saying “Moxley” a bunch of times along the way. Out from the back comes Jurassic Express (Luchasaurus, Jungle Boy and Marko Stunt).
Jericho then says that he was just about to get to them and lists “Dinosaurs.” Luchasaurus then growls and tells Jericho that he has a Master’s Degree and that dinosaurs have been marginalized for 65 million years. He then gives props to Stunt, but it’s neither of them who want Jericho. It’s Jungle Boy. Jericho then rips on him and says that he hasn’t even won a match, is a mute and is a “piece of s—.” Jericho then says that Jungle Boy couldn’t last ten minutes with him. Jungle Boy then takes the mic and says that he knows he can last 10 minutes and will kick Jericho’s ass. Jungle Boy then slaps Jericho. A brawl then breaks out with Jurassic Express standing tall in the ring.
Commentary then informs us that Nyla Rose has been suspended based on her beating Referee Rick Knox down during the commercial break.
Hikaru Shida and Kris Statlander then make their entrances for the next match of the evening.
Kris Statlander def. Hikaru Shida via pinfall with the Big Bang Theory. After the match, Brandi Rhodes and Awesome Kong comes out and talks a bit. Brandi says that people love what they don’t understand and people have been clambering for answers about what they are up to. Brandi then says that her and Kong make up the Nightmare Collective and they are looking to grow. Brandi then talks to Statlander and asks her to pledge herself to the group. Brandi then says to do it right now and then Awesome Kong moves in as Statlander hesitates. From the crowd, a “fan” (Melanie Cruise, wrestler from the Chicago area) is asking to pledge. She is allowed into the ring and offers her hair. Kong cuts a piece off and then a whole lot more as the segment comes to a close.
We then go to a commercial break.
Back from the commercial break and Christopher Daniels and Pentagon Jr. makes their entrances for the next match of the evening.
Pentagon Jr. def. Christopher Daniels via pinfall with the package piledriver.
We then go to a commercial break on a video package for The Butcher, The Blade and The Bunny wherein they explain that they are here to hurt Cody Rhodes.
