The Wrestling Roundup is here to bring you all the news and rumors you need to know in one place.
AEW Dynamite Results
All Out was this past weekend, so what would the fallout be? After losing to Jon Moxley, what would MJF’s next move be? Who would Kip Sabian name as his best man? Did Dustin Rhodes manage to dethrone Brodie Lee? So many questions to answer, and only two hours to do it in. Here are the full results from this week’s Dynamite:
- Jurassic Express def. Lucha Bros
- Orange Cassidy def. Angelico
- Chris Jericho & Jake Hager def. Joey Janela & Sonny Kiss in a No DQ Match
- Nyla Rose def. Tay Conti
- Mr. Brodie Lee (c) def. Dustin Rhodes to retain the TNT Championship
The most exciting development on this week’s show: it’s Rusev Day! He isn’t known as Rusev anymore, but Miro debuted in AEW as Kip Sabian’s Best Man. Miro is one of the best performers that AEW could bring in. I am so excited for him to join the roster and prove what he can do. He even posted a vlog from backstage at AEW already! Check it out below.

Josiah Williams Returned to NXT
On-air talent Josiah Williams returned to NXT on Tuesday. The rapper & presenter was part of the April furloughs that affected many levels of WWE staff. Keith Lee made a great comment on Wiliiams’ return. Let’s hope they get to collaborate sooner rather than later.
Welcome back brudda. This makes me happy.
Now tell them to let you make me a new theme. 😂😂😂😂😂 https://t.co/rVLFkanUhJ
