-All Elite Wrestling Dynamite will be held tonight in Milwaukee, Wisconsin at UWM Panther Arena. The show features CM Punk’s first Dynamite appearance. Join Jake Barnett for this week’s live review tonight at 7CT/8ET. Dot Net Members will hear my weekly same night audio review of after the show.

-Last Wednesday’s AEW Dynamite finished with A as the majority grade with 44 percent of the vote. B finished second with 33 percent. I gave the show a B grade.
-Friday’s AEW Rampage finished with A as the majority grade from 82 percent of our post show poll voters. B finished second with 9 percent. I gave the show a rare A grade. Punk’s return was perfect in terms of opening the show, his delivery, the simplicity of his moment with Darby Allin and Sting, and the broadcast team speaking and not speaking at the right times. This was fantastic.
