All Elite Wrestling returns with the latest weekly edition of AEW Dynamite tonight, November 27th, from the Sears Centre Arena in Chicago, Illinois.
Make sure to refresh the page often to view the latest AEW Dynamite results from Chicago, Ill.
We kick off with a live shot of a band playing trumpet music on the entrance and then Virgil appears in a ring decorated with giant gifts and Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade-looking floats.
Virgil introduces himself as Soultrain Jones before making some jokes and then botching Chris Jericho's name when introducing him.
Thank You Thanksgiving Celebration For Le Champion
With that said, Jericho emerges from the entrance way as the trumpeters play him as he walks to the ring to baby face pops from the fans in Chi-Town.
Before he can talk, the fans chant "Thank You Jericho! Thank You Jericho!" Jericho says some heel stuff about the fans in Chicago not mattering and that he wants a "Thank You" from AEW management.
He says he's gonna kick off this show with a gift for everyone. He tells fans to look under their seats. They do and find a ticket. They all cheer. Jericho tells them it's a coupon for $0.50-off a t-shirt of "Le Champion." They all boo.
Jericho talks about scouring the earth to find the best-tasting grapes for a Little Bit Of The Bubbly (#ALittleBitOfTheBubbly) before announcing a new website at LittleBitOfTheBubbly.com. A graphic airs on the screen to plug the website.
Now Jericho introduces the rest of The Inner Circle. Out comes Sammy Guevara, Santana and Ortiz (Proud 'N' Powerful). Jake Hager is not in sight.
Guevara gets on the mic and calls Jericho a father-figure before telling the fans to shut up and introducing a cardboard cut-out of himself and Jericho as a gift to "Le Champion." Jericho thanks "The Spanish God."
Santana & Ortiz give Jericho some grooming items and other personal man-like gifts for Le Champion. Now they show him a picture and a bunch of other comedic gifts, such as "A Little Bit Of The 40." The fans chant "40! 40!" as a paper-bagged 40-oz. alcoholic beverage is hoisted in the air. Jericho cracks jokes.
Jericho asks where Hager is. Finally we see "Big Hurt" himself with a pet goat for Chris Jericho named "Chris Jeri-Goat." The fans start chanting "Jeri-Goat! Jeri-Goat!"
Now, due to extreme curiosity, Jericho asks what gift is in the biggest box in the ring. Santana & Ortiz tell him it's a big surprise for him. Jericho gets excited as they open the box to show New York Rangers great -- and Jericho's father -- Ted Irvine, in a NHL jersey and all.
Ted Irvine tries for a cheap pop but purposely says "it's great to be back in New York City!" to get the fans to boo. The fans chant "Let's Go Blackhawks" as Jericho informs his father they are in Chicago, the home of the NHL's Blackhawks. Ted Irvine brags about beating the Blackhawks all the time during his career as part of the NHL's Rangers. He brags about beating up "some guy" named Bobby Hull, an NHL legend. He says Chicago will always be "wimps" for some more cheap heat.
Jericho notices that his father is holding a bag. He asks what they are. Irvine says it's custom New York Rangers NHL jersey's for the members of The Inner Circle. They open the bag and all unfold their custom jerseys while the fans inside Sears Centre Arena chant "Rangers suck! Rangers suck!"
He says they've all had some fun but now it's time to get down to it. He claims to have a "Thank You" message from AEW executives and the brass at TNT. He says he doesn't feel like reading so he calls in AEW ring announcer Justin Roberts to do so. Roberts comes in and gets some cheap love for saying he lives down the road and that he went to a local high school. Jericho says his high school sucked.
Roberts reads the formal message written on an AEW letterhead document. When he's done, Jericho tells him it was okay but he didn't appreciate Roberts' tone while reading it. He bullies him and asks why he thinks he doesn't deserve a Thank You. He smacks Roberts in the face with the microphone, which begins a full-on beat-down from The Inner Circle.
Out comes the marching band that played the trumpets for Jericho's entrance. They tear off their clothing to reveal they weren't band members at all, but were in fact the members of SoCal Uncensored in disguise. They take out The Inner Circle, who retreats up the aisle. The AEW Tag-Team Champions and the man who will challenge Jericho for the AEW World Title tonight -- Scorpio Sky -- stand tall in the ring while Jericho and The Inner Circle bicker at them from the ramp.
What's On Tap For Tonight ...
We shoot up to the announce table where Jim Ross, The Excalibur and the AEW announce team run down some of the matches and segments, such as Cody's return, the finals of the Dynamite Ring match between Hangman Page and MJF -- with DDP on hand to present to the winner, Kenny Omega vs. PAC and Chris Jericho vs. Scorpio Sky for the AEW World's Heavyweight Championship. We are told that Tony Schiavone is out on assingment, so Marcos Solis Martinez, an All Elite Fleet Announce Team member, courtesy of their friends at State Farm, is introduced.

The Best Friends -- Trent and Chuck Taylor -- make their way out with Orange Cassidy dressed up in a Thanksgiving costume.
As they head to the ring, they are attacked from behind by The Lucha Bros -- Pentagon Jr. and Rey Fenix. They brawl down the ramp until Cassidy, in his Turkey costume and all, flies off the top and splashing onto the guys on the floor.
The Best Friends roll The Lucha Bros in the ring and the bell sounds to officially kick this one off. Within seconds, Taylor and Trent hug and the fans pop. The pace picks up now as Taylor and Trent jump off to the early offensive lead in this tag-team affair.
We return and we see Fenix is in the ring taking it to Trent, as The Lucha Bros have appeared to have taken over the offensive control in the contest. Fenix knocks Taylor off the apron and tags in Pentagon, who comes off the top rope with a missile drop kick for a near fall.
Trent makes the tag. Chuck Taylor takes the hot tag and is taking out any and everything that moves. As it appears The Lucha Bros were going to regain the advantage with a two-on-one attack, Taylor throws Pentagon into Fenix and then hits a suicide dive crashing onto both guys on the floor.
As Taylor goes to follow up with a super kick, he is taken out by The Lucha Bros. They hit a big top-rope spot on Trent now for a close near fall. Now Orange Cassidy, in his turkey costume, jumps on the apron and slowly flaps his wings trying to provide a distraction.
Taylor flies off the ring steps taking out Pentagon, who went out to the floor to confront Cassidy. Back in the ring, Trent hits a Crunchie for the 1-2-3. The Best Friends just defeated the number one ranked AEW Tag-Team, The Lucha Bros, via pin fall.

She finally makes the hot tag to Kris Statlander. Statlander comes in with a Matrix kick before knocking Bea Priestley off the apron.
Statlander does a version of The Oklahoma Roll, which makes J.R. perk up on commentary, as the proud Oklahoma native gives legendary Oklahoman Danny Hodge a shout-out. Meanwhile, Sakura starts taking it to Statlander now, as she cuts her offensive run short.
Sakura goes for a diving cross body onto Statlander in the corner. Priestley follows up with a double stomp, which leads to a back-breaker for a close near fall on Statlander.
