AEW Dynamite is back this Wednesday night and will air live from Indianapolis, Indiana.  With Full Gear looming on Saturday, the go-home show for AEW Dynamite promises to be a spectacular one.

A number of very interesting feuds have heated up over the past couple of weeks leading to an intriguing match card for AEW’s final pay-per-view of the year.

Darby Allin vs MJF, Eddie Kingston vs CM Punk, and Bryan Danielson vs Miro are three matches that could sell a pay-per-view card on their own, but they are just the tip of the iceberg for Saturday’s Full Gear card.

Make sure you check back to over the next couple of days to read our Full Gear predictions.

But for now, onto this week’s Dynamite.

This week’s show has four announced matches, and will also feature the AEW World Title Match contract signing by the champion, Kenny Omega, and the challenger, “Hangman” Adam Page.

Let’s take a look at the announced matches for this week’s AEW Dynamite and what to expect from each.

Matt Sydal & Lee Moriarty vs Lio Rush & Dante Martin

In the match most likely to steal the show this week, Lio Rush will make his AEW Dynamite when he teams with Dante Martin to take on Lee Moriarty and Matt Sydal.

AEW has done a great job of teaming their young talent with established stars and this trend continues in the form of Rush and Martin.

When Dante’s brother Darius went down with an injury the prospects of Dante Martin being a player in AEW seemed to go down as well.

Yet Martin would turn heads every time he stepped in the ring to the point that AEW knew they needed to keep him involved.

After a pair of singles matches, Matt Sydal would attempt to take Martin under his wing, and the two would start to team regularly.

Then entered Lio Rush.  Rush came into the picture, claiming to be able to take Dante Martin to new heights, and thus far he has delivered.

With Rush in his corner, Martin was able to earn a singles victory over Sydal, something he had failed to do in two previous attempts.

Even with this recent success, Dante Martin seems conflicted about his relationship with Lio Rush.  And thus AEW has again flexed its creative muscle by creating a storyline that is easy to care about as we watch a young phenom struggle with a moral dilemma.

What is more important to Dante Martin?  The success he seems to be having with Lio Rush by his side, the friendship he seemed to have developed with Matt Sydal?  And what will Martin’s brother, Darius think about it all when he comes back?

Oh, and if you haven’t gotten a chance to see Lee Moriarty do his thing, he is yet another reason to tune into this match.  Moriarty is relatively new to AEW, but he is going to be a huge part of its future.

The outcome that makes the most sense is for Martin to pin Sydal again here, with Rush taking the credit for Dante Martin’s success.  This outcome helps further the story of a young star torn between having success by aligning with someone he doesn’t trust and doing what he knows is right.   Winners: Lio Rush & Dante Martin

Pac vs Dax Hardwood

Ahead of the Lucha Bros title defense against FTR at Full Gear, the third member of Death Triangle, Pac, will take on Dax Hardwood.

FTR has been making enemies at an alarming rate lately.  The “Top Guys” have had issues with Darby Allin and Sting, Cody Rhodes, and Death Triangle in recent weeks.

But through it all they were successful in winning the AAA World Tag Team Championships from the Lucha Bros and have a shot to take the only pair of titles Penta and Fenix have left this coming Saturday, the AEW World Tag Team Titles.

But FTR’s good fortune is about to run out, beginning with this match on Dynamite.

FTR is one of the best tag teams on the planet, but a singles match plays more to the strengths of Pac.

Pac will be able to fend off the attempted outside interference, (possibly with the help of his friends) and pick up a win over Dax Hardwood.  Winner: Pac

Britt Baker, Jamie Hayter & Rebel vs Tay Conti, Anna Jay & Thunder Rosa

On the heels of Jamie Hayter’s win over Anna Jay in the TBS Women’s Title Tournament, we get a six-woman tag match featuring some of the most talented women on the AEW roster.

Baker and her group of cronies have been very successful in capitalizing on the numbers game in recent weeks, but in this matchup, the numbers will be even, which bodes well for the team of Tay Conti, Jay, and Thunder Rosa.

AEW has a great opportunity here to have Conti pin Baker to try to add some intrigue to their match at Full Gear that most people consider a foregone conclusion.

And while it is unlikely they go that route, the babyface team will get a small measure of revenge by picking up the victory, with Rebel most likely taking the fall.  Winners: Tay Conti, Anna Jay & Thunder Rosa

Bryan Danielson vs Rocky Romero

A veteran of Lucha Libre USA, Ring of Honor, and current New Japan Pro Wrestling product, Rocky Romero will be next up to try to hand Bryan Danielson his first loss inside an AEW ring.

Romero has a background in mixed martial arts and brings a highly-skilled submission game to the AEW ring.

Rocky Romero also won’t be coming into this match alone, as Orange Cassidy will be in his corner.

The presence of Orange Cassidy should add another dimension to this match, as he and Bryan Danielson should have an interesting face-off when the time comes.

As entertaining as this match should be, this is not the right time, nor the right opponent to beat Bryan Danielson in an AEW ring.

Danielson will pick up another win, this time over a very game Rocky Romero, and head into his showdown with Miro at Full Gear on a winning streak.  Winner: Bryan Danielson
