The shows AEW is producing are just as good, and wrestling fans have often swayed away from WWE shows to watch AEW. In fact, AEW Dynamite rose to a point where it was actively competing with and defeating WWE NXT on Wednesday nights.

Coming to the latest episode of AEW Dynamite, several segments and matches combined to bring forth an excellent episode for the audience.

Number one contender for AEW Women’s title

Hikaru Shida wrestled Tay Conti as the former put her title on the line. AEW ranked her number 1 in the women’s division. However, Shida successfully retained her title, and this meant she will need to face a new challenger soon.

Dr. Britt Baker walked out to the ring before Shida could leave and pointed to the rankings, which showed that Britt Baker had achieved the numero uno spot.

Hiraku Shida will now face the new rank 1 in the contender, Britt Baker.

AEW TNT Championship retained

Darby Allin put his title on the line when he wrestled Jungle Boy in the main event. Allin secured a victory over Jungle Boy and continued his reign as the TNT Champion.

However, after the match, chaos took over the squared circle. Ethan Page and Scorpio Sky arrived to take down Allin and Jungle Boy. However, Sting and Lance Archer came to the rescue and chased away Page and Sky.

It’s possible Darby Allin and Jungle Boy will form an alliance to battle Ethan Page and Scorpio Sky.

Jon Moxley and Eddie Kingston return

Moxley and Kingston were absent from AEW after being attacked by The Young Bucks, The Good Brothers, and Kenny Omega.

They returned to AEW in a monster truck and rammed it into The Elite’s trailer before Moxley started smashing the windows. Now, it’s just a matter of time before Moxley and Kingston pick apart The Elite.

MJF puts The Inner Circle on notice

Chris Jericho cut a brilliant promo, warning The Pinnacle prior to their Blood and Guts match. However, MJF one-upped Jericho and cut a better promo, which was the perfect response to Jericho.

It’s just a matter of time before one faction establishes itself as the top dog of AEW.
