It was an absolutely wild PPV on Sunday with the biggest story being we have a new AEW champion in CM Punk. We also saw the debut of a few new wrestlers and Wardlow was able to conquer MJF and earn himself an AEW contract. There’s no slowing down for AEW, as the big shows continue with the debut show in SoCal! There’s only been 2 matches announced so far but both of them are big ones!
Jungle Boy, Luchasaurus, Christian Cage & Matt Hardy vs Young Bucks & reDRagon – 8 man tag
This is a really cool match just for the fact that we get to see Matt Hardy team up with long time rival Christian Cage. They’ve had some all time classics against each other, and now they’re going to be on the same side.
The Young bucks will be looking for a measure of revenge as they came out on the losing side against the Hardys at Double or Nothing. Kyle O’Reilly was also victorious at the PPV, as he got a surprise win against Darby Allin.
This match was announced at the end of Double or Nothing as a 10-man tag, and early speculation is that it had to be changed because of an injury to Jeff Hardy. If that’s the case, here’s hoping to a speedy recovery for Jeff!
I love the AEW multi-man matches, as they are always fast-paced, fun matches. I expect the Undisputed Elite to pick up the win in this match.
As of right now, that’s all that’s been officially announced for this upcoming Dynamite. We know that Scorpio Sky will be defending his TNT title against Dante Martin, but that could be either Dynamite or Rampage. We will most likely hear from new AEW champion CM Punk, the JAS will gloat about their win, and will we find out more about new signings Stockely Hathaway, Athena and Rush?
All this and so much more can be seen on TBS (TSN in Canada) every Wednesday night at 8PM EST.
