It’s Wednesday, you know that that means. Time for another big episode of AEW Dynamite, as we enter the first night of New Years’ Smash. This card was planned for last week, until the tragic passing of Mr. Brodie Lee rightfully changed plans. However, his spirit lives on as the AEW roster will continue to do their absolute best work every Wednesday, starting last week and going forward into the future. Tonight will see huge matches like Kenny Omega vs. Rey Fenix for the AEW World Championship, so let’s waste no time and break this card down!
Rey Fenix Gets His Chance At Kenny Omega
During the AEW World Championship Eliminator tournament, Rey Fenix beat Penta El Zero M, but got taken out of the tournament due to injury. This meant that Fenix didn’t get his chance to beat Kenny Omega. Now, that changes, as they face off for the AEW World Championship.
They’ve met a few times outside of AEW, but this is their first one on one match in the company, and sure to be the first match of the year contender within AEW for 2021. Expect no less than an absolute epic from this main event, unless Don Callis meddles too much.
Cody Rhodes Takes On Matt Sydal
In what could be a sleeper hit on this show, two veterans of the ring will meet. Matt Sydal is back on AEW Dynamite, and is ready to start his year with a win over Cody Rhodes. Far from their first match together, they’ve been wrestling against each other since 2008 during their time in WWE.
It’s been almost a decade though, their last match together being on November 31st, 2011. This is their first singles match together. With the time apart being so long, they’ve had time to completely change their respective styles, and become some of the best in the world.
Hikaru Shida Defends Against Abadon
In 2020, Hikaru Shida was damn near unstoppable, but one name shakes her to the core. Abadon terrifies Shida, and is the only one that can enter a match with the mental edge over the champion. Shida has swatted Abadon down in recent weeks, but tonight needs to face this demonic figure in a straight up match. Don’t expect a classic match like Omega vs. Fenix here, just a drag out brawl.
Also announced for tonight is an appearance from Snoop Dogg, Wardlow vs. Jake Hager, and Young Bucks teaming with SCU to take on The Acclaimed and TH2. What are you most excited for from AEW Dynamite tonight? Let us know what you think in the comment section down below.
