This week’s episode of AEW Dynamite airs tonight at 10pm ET/9pm CT on TNT in the United States. It was pre-empted on Wednesday night due to an NBA Playoff game that aired on TNT. There are no NBA games on TNT tonight (ESPN has two games while ABC has one game), but TNT has chosen to air Dynamite at 10pm ET so that it follows WWE Smackdown on Fox. This week’s Dynamite is the final Dynamite episode before Sunday’s Double or Nothing pay-per-view.
Here’s what matches AEW has advertised for tonight’s show.
* AEW TNT Championship: Miro (c) vs. Dante Martin
* Scorpio Sky and Ethan Page vs. The Dark Order’s Evil Uno and Stu Grayson
* Joey Janela vs. “Hangman” Adam Page
* Darby Allin (with Sting) vs. Cezar Bononi (with Ryan Nemeth)
* Jade Cargill issues an open challenge
Here are the non-wrestling segments that AEW is advertising for tonight’s show.
* Orange Cassidy will respond to Kenny Omega’s offer to defer his title shot
* Anthony Ogogo and Cody Rhodes weigh-in
* A celebration of the Inner Circle hosted by Eric Bischoff
* One year anniversary of Hikaru Shida as AEW Women’s World Champion
TJR Thoughts: I think this is one of the weakest lineups they have ever had. All of the matches feature guys wrestling on the PPV against guys not on the PPV, so the guys not on the Double or Nothing PPV will be doing the job.
My current plan is to not review AEW Dynamite this week. I might do a results post tomorrow, but that’s it. I’m busy with a live Smackdown review tonight and then the Double or Nothing preview. We will have an in-depth Double or Nothing PPV preview posted on Saturday around noon. I will be back on Sunday night for a live review of Double or Nothing as well.
Speaking of Double or Nothing, here’s the full lineup for Sunday’s show.
Stadium Stampede Match: The Pinnacle (MJF, Shawn Spears, Dax Harwood, Cash Wheeler & Wardlow) vs. The Inner Circle (Chris Jericho, Jake Hager, Sammy Guevara, Santan & Ortiz) – The Inner Circle must break up if they lose!
AEW World Championship: Kenny Omega (c) vs. Pac vs. Orange Cassidy
AEW World Tag Team Championships: The Young Bucks (c) vs. Jon Moxley & Eddie Kingston
AEW TNT Championship: Miro (c) vs. Lance Archer
Sting & Darby Allin vs. Ethan Page & Scorpio Sky – This will be Sting’s first match live and in a ring in nearly six years. AEW has specifically stated that it won’t be a cinematic match. It will be a live match in the ring.
AEW Women’s World Championship: Hikaru Shida (c) vs. Britt Baker
Cody Rhodes vs. Anthony Ogogo
“Hangman” Adam Page vs. Brian Cage
Casino Battle Royale: Christian Cage, Matt Sydal, Powerhouse Hobbs, The Varsity Blonds, Dustin Rhodes, Matt Hardy, The Acclaimed, Evil Uno, Colt Cabana, Preston Vance, Jungle Boy vs. Matt Hardy, Private Party, Penta El Zero Miedo, QT Marshall, Nick Comoroto, and more names to be announced. The winner gets a future AEW World Title match.
