AEW Dynamite Results 6/5 - AEW World Championship On The Line, MJF Appears & More

Welcome to Wrestling Inc.'s results for "AEW Dynamite" on June 5, 2024, coming to you live from the Blue Arena in Loveland, Colorado!

MJF made his highly anticipated return from injury at AEW Double or Nothing on May 26 when he confronted his former tag team partner Adam Cole and announced that he had re-signed with AEW after months of speculation as to where he would land when his contract expired. Tonight, he will be making his first appearance on AEW programming since then.


Following his successful defense of the AEW World Championship at Double or Nothing and his win over Killswitch last week on "Dynamite", Swerve Strickland looks to score another win tonight as he puts his title on the line against The Undisputed Kingdom's Roderick Strong. Strickland will surely be extra motivated to win tonight's match as he will be looking to gain some momentum heading into his AEW World Championship match against AEW International Champion Will Ospreay at AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door on June 30.

Wheeler Yuta will be returning to competition tonight for the first time in over five months as he joins forces with his Blackpool Combat Club teammates IWGP World Heavyweight Champion Jon Moxley, Bryan Danielson, and Claudio Castagnoli to square off with Esfinge, Rugido, and CMLL stars Volador Jr. and Magnus. The reigning Ring of Honor Pure Champion has been sidelined with an injury and last competed at the "AEW Rampage" Homecoming special on January 12 in which he unsuccessfully challenged Eddie Kingston for the AEW Continental, Ring of Honor World, and NJPW STRONG Openweight Championships.


The Outcasts' Saraya will also be returning to action tonight as she goes one-on-one with Mariah May. Saraya and May previously met one another in the ring on the May 22 edition of "Dynamite", in which May and reigning AEW Women's World Champion Toni Storm defeated Saraya and Harley Cameron.

We are live! Excalibur, Tony Schiavone, and Taz greet audiences at home as MJF makes his way down to the ring.

We Hear From MJF

MJF says he's back and puts over his new t-shirt, then says he's in the ring to put everyone on notice. He says as he was sitting at home nursing up his injuries, he was watching a bunch of children making bold claims such as Kazuchika Okada and Swerve Strickland. He takes shots at both of them, then says he took offense to Strickland calling himself a business mogul as he never went to business school. He says the most egregious of the claims was Will Ospreay saying he was the best in the world, and says the last time he checked, he wasn't Chris Jericho, Jon Moxley, Cody Rhodes, Samoa Joe, Kenny Omega, and Hiroshi Tanahashi among others. He says he's been able to beat all of those names, and says the next time Ospreay wants to come on his show and lie through his teeth, he should watch his tone and check his mouth.


MJF says he's the best in the world, and says in five short years, he became the face of AEW. He says he's created some of the most memorable moments and matches in the history of professional wrestling, and says he became the most hated man in wrestling only to become the most beloved. He says people are trying to smear his name and revise his history and legacy.

Rush's music hits, and he makes his way down to the ring. Rush says much like all the other stupid and filthy Americans in the building, MJF never shuts up. He says while MJF was gone, he was working hard wrestling. He says MJF gets a big celebration for coming back, then asks where his celebration and big moment is. Rush says he's going to take MJF's moment and spot because when you mess with the bull, you get the horns.


MJF says it was rough when Tony Khan was in charge, but things have only gotten worse now that The Elite is running things. He asks fans if they can hear Rush, and Rush looks to repeat himself, but MJF cuts him off and tells him no one cares what he has to say. He says he know how talented Rush is having one paid him to take out Bryan Danielson, and rattles off a few of Rush's accomplishments. MJF says while Rush has overcome some of the best, he isn't one of the best but the best. He then tells Rush that he's better than him and he knows it.

MJF and Rush then begin brawling in the ring, but security, referees, and Christopher Daniels run down to the ring to separate the two men.

Orange Cassidy then makes his way down to the ring. Kyle O'Reilly, Jay Lethal, Sonjay Dutt, Rey Fenix, and Alex Abrahantes follow.
