-All Elite Wrestling Dynamite will be held tonight in Chicago, Illinois at NOW Arena. The show features Matt Jackson, Nick Jackson, Doc Gallows, and Karl Anderson vs. Penta El Zero Miedo, Rey Fenix, Jungle Boy, and Luchasaurus in an eight-man tag match. Join Jake Barnett for this week’s live review tonight at 7CT/8ET. I will be out tonight, so my audio review will be available for members on Thursday morning this week. My same night audio reviews will return next week.
-We are looking for reports from this week’s AEW events in Chicago. If you are going tonight or going to another upcoming show and want to help, send me a note at email@example.com
-Last Wednesday’s AEW Dynamite finished with B as the majority grade with 36 percent of the vote. C finished second with 33 percent. I gave the show a C- grade and felt it was an underwhelming edition aside from the Dynamite debut of CM Punk.
-Friday’s AEW Rampage finished with B as the majority grade from 41 percent of our post show poll voters. A finished second with 20 percent, and C was a close third with 19 percent. I gave the show a B grade, mostly for the hot opening match.
