AEW has announced that the winners of tonight’s Jon Moxley vs. Sammy Guevara and Pac vs. Darby Allin matches will meet next week to determine the No. 1 contender to the AEW Championship.
-Awesome Kong will not wrestle tonight as previously advertised due to illness. Kong will be replaced by Brandi Rhodes in a tag match with Mel against the team of Hikaru Shida and Kris Statlander that will be held on tonight’s AEW Dynamite.
Powell’s POV: Next week’s AEW Dynamite is being taped on the Jericho Cruise. All signs seem to point to Moxley becoming the No. 1 contender and challenging Jericho at the February 29 AEW Revolution pay-per-view. That said, there’s plenty of time between now and the pay-per-view if they want to go with a different title match and still get to Jericho vs. Moxley at the pay-per-view. Join Jake Barnett for his live review of AEW Dynamite as the show airs on TNT tonight at 7CT/8ET.
