It’s Wednesday, you know what that means! Another massive episode of AEW Dynamite. AEW loves to promote shows like AEW Dark & Dark: Elevation as having quadruple main events, but tonight that is truly the case with AEW Dynamite, as they bring one of their best cards ever on paper.
Ricky Starks vs. Hangman Page. Darby Allin vs. Jungle Boy. Christian Cage vs. Powerhouse Hobbs. Hikaru Shida vs. Tay Conti! Any of those matches could main event an episode of Dynamite, and that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Let’s break down these matches and more for tonight’s episode of AEW Dynamite.
Darby Allin Defends TNT Championship Against Jungle Boy
For the fourth week in a row, Darby Allin will defend his TNT Championship on AEW Dynamite. Joey Janela, John Silver & Matt Hardy have all fallen to him, back to back to back. This week his demand to Tony Khan was simple. Pick someone in the Top 5, and give them this title shot.
Jungle Boy was picked, and this is a match between two of AEW’s best rising stars. At the pace Darby Allin has been going, something has to give eventually, and Jungle Boy could very well be the one to end this reign. Sting will be in the corner of Darby Allin, and Luchasarus & Marko Stunt will back Jungle Boy up.
Hikaru Shida Defends AEW Women’s Championship Against Tay Conti
But that is not the only title match on tonight’s show, as we also have a defense of the AEW Women’s Championship. Hikaru Shida has been an ally of Tay Conti over recent weeks, but now Conti is the #1 ranked contender for her championship. #TayDay has been trending on Twitter, as many feel tonight will be the biggest win of her career.
Shida has been champion for 333 days, and has managed seven defenses. Tonight, she better bring her A-Game. We all know that Conti will not take this chance lightly. She’s worked for years to get to this spot, and might be unstoppable.
Christian Cage Might Have Bit Off More Than He Can Chew With Powerhouse Hobbs
Team Taz is always looking to expand, and they’ve recently tried to get Christian Cage in their ranks. Christian wanted nothing to do with Taz or his goons, which led him to being mauled by Powerhouse Hobbs. Hobbs is a lot for anyone to handle, even a veteran like Christian.
After feeling what Hobbs can do first hand, Christian was put into a match with him this week. It will be veteran skill vs. raw power in this first time ever singles match. However, you can also expect the rest of Team Taz at ringside for this one.
A Battle For The #1 Spot In AEW Men’s Rankings
The final big singles match tonight is a simple one between Ricky Starks & Hangman Page. Both men come into this match with incredible records, with Hangman Page being ranked #1 in the mens division, with a 8-Straight singles wins.
Starks is right behind him with 10-Straight singles wins, but Page is his biggest test yet. Should Starks be able to take Page down, he very well might be the next man to face Kenny Omega for the AEW World Championship.
Also Announced For Tonight…
Those are the big four matches, with all of them having a claim to the main event spot. But there’s more action tonight as well. Trent of Best Friends takes on Penta of Death Triangle. Billy Gunn of The Nightmare Family takes on QT Marshall of The Factory. Jim Ross will sit down with The Pinnacle for an interview. The Inner Circle will be around. Finally, Jon Moxley & Eddie Kingston will be in the building.
