AEW Dynamite Results: Wednesday, March 31, 2021

Christian Cage def. Frankie Kazarian

Competing in the opening match is hardly the fanfare Christian deserves, but to be fair, this is the exact same spot AEW world champion Kenny Omega competed in last week.

Frankie Kazarian dominated the early goings of this match and Jim Ross even gave him the hypothetical victory on points.

Christian looked a bit rusty in spots, but this was a very satisfying pro wrestling match.

Cody Rhodes vs. QT Marshall Exhibition Match ends in a No Contest

Arn Anderson was introduced by a respectful Justin Roberts as a “Very Special Guest Referee.”

QT became more of a heel with every passing second of this match.

“Cody’s Friend” is he 2021 version of “Larry Sucks!”

This match ended in a QT Marshall cheapshot on Arn Anderson, which led to a Nightmare factory Civil War led by Aaron Solow, Nick Comoroto and Anthony Ogogo.

Jon Moxley def. Cezar Bononi

This match went lightyears longer than I thought it would, and though Cezar is certainly green, he does have potential.

Ryan Nemeth has a lot of promise as a manager.

Kenny Omega and The Good Brothers vs. Laredo Kid and The Lucha Bros

The backstage segment that aired before this, with The Inner Circle destroying The Pinnacle, was fantastic, but was part of multiple backstage segments that aired one after another like an old episode of TNA IMPACT.

So, does this match mean Penta is playing a de facto babyface after weeks of heel promos against Cody Rhodes?

Don Callis continued to be awesome on commentary throughout this one.

The Lucha Bros reminded everybody that they can be just as good together as they are apart.

Nyla Rose and The Bunny def. Hikaru Shida and Tay Conti

The Bunny looked great in this match, she might be the best-kept secret in the entire women’s division for AEW.

The Hardy Family Office vs. The Dark Order is yet another potential Blood and Guts Match if and when AEW decide to revive that concept.

Chuck Taylor and Orange Cassidy def. Kip Sabian and Miro—Arcade Anarchy

This was really just a hardcore match and didn’t incorporate arcades and gaming nearly as much as I thought it would.

This match bordered on being a comedy match, especially given how irreverent the commentary team was at times.

Instead of thumbtacks, this match made use of the more whimsical Legos.

I had no idea how much I missed Sue and her van.
