AEW Dynamite is back this Wednesday, March 9th, and will broadcast live on TBS from Estero, Florida.

Coming off of a fantastic match card at Revolution on Sunday, this week’s episode of Dynamite promises to introduce us to some new storylines as well as serve as an extenuation from events that went down at the pay-per-view.

As of now, there are only two announced matches for this week’s Dynamite, but both matches have championship implications.

And while more matches will certainly be added and announced over the next couple of days, this show may be more productive with the balance of the two hours leaning more heavily towards promos and storylines than it would be with an abundance of additional matches.

Let’s take a look at what segments we might see and the two announced matches for AEW Dynamite’s Fallout From Revolution episode.

MJF and CM Punk turn their attention elsewhere……..for now

In what can only be described as one of the best programs in recent wrestling history, MJF and CM Punk went to war in a dog collar match at Revolution.

CM Punk’s entrance and attire in this match was a definite callback to his Ring of Honor days, as he attempted to call back on a younger, nastier version of himself to prepare himself for the brutal match that he was about to take part in.

In a fairly even match, MJF eventually called on Wardlow to deliver him the Dynamite Diamond Ring, which was integral to MJF’s past success.

Wardlow however, struggled to find the ring, allowing CM Punk to get control of the match.

Only after CM Punk was able to regain the upper hand was Wardlow able to produce the ring, and with MJF incapacitated, Wardlow would lock eyes with Punk and set the Dynamite Diamond Ring on the wrestling ring apron, and head back up the ramp, leaving the ringside area.

CM Punk would proceed to use the ring to knock MJF out and secure the win, evening their feud at one win apiece.

And while that could lead to the two competing in a rubber match, the smarter play is to let this feud simmer for a few months while MJF and CM Punk move on to other things.

MJF’s path certainly seems laid out for us already as he is sure to have a bone to pick with Wardlow on Wednesday night.   But CM Punk’s next step isn’t quite as clear.

With Punk’s win, he avenges his only AEW loss and has a number of good wins over former AEW World Title challengers in MJF, Eddie Kingston, and Darby Allin.

And with “Hangman” Adam Page dispatching Adam Cole at Revolution, the AEW World Champion doesn’t have an obvious dance partner at this time either.

So on Wednesday, don’t be surprised if “The Best in the World’ makes his intentions known to try to become the best in AEW.   CM Punk becomes the next challenger for Adam Page’s Title

Jeff Hardy officially becomes All Elite

The dissension inside the AHFO has been building over the past couple of weeks, especially between Matt Hardy and Private Party.  And with Matt Hardy taking the pinfall at Revolution, Hardy may find himself as the odd man out of the faction that he originally founded come Wednesday night.

When this happens Hardy will seem to be without allies until his brother, Jeff Hardy makes his AEW debut, saving Matt and reuniting one of the greatest tag teams of all time for one last run in AEW.  Jeff Hardy is all elite and the Hardy Boyz are back together

Leyla Hirsch vs Thunder Rosa in an AEW Women’s World Title Eliminator

Two women that had very different levels of success at Revolution will hook up on Wednesday night for a chance to earn a title shot against Dr. Britt Baker the following week at St. Patrick’s Day Slam.

Hirsch picked up arguably the biggest win of her career by defeating Kris Statlander on the Revolution buy-in show and Rosa came up short in her quest to become the AEW Women’s Champion when she was pinned by Britt Baker.

However, this match seems tailor-made for Thunder Rosa to win for a couple of reasons.

Thunder Rosa lost her title match against Baker at Revolution only because of outside interference from Jamie Hayter and Rebel, which should lead to her getting a rematch in a more controlled environment.

Second, St. Patrick’s Day Slam just so happens to take place in San Antonio, Texas, the hometown of Thunder Rosa.

Hirsch will continue her good heel run here and will use some underhanded tactics to try to steal the match.  It won’t be enough on Wednesday as Thunder Rosa will find a way to prevail.

After the match, Thunder Rosa will get on the microphone and ask for some sort of stipulation for her championship rematch, which will most likely be either a steel cage match or a match with Rebel and Jamie Hayter barred from ringside.

The cage match is the way to go, as these two women give us yet another first in AEW, and Rosa gets Britt Baker inside a cage next week in San Antonio.  Winner: Thunder Rosa

Scorpio Sky vs Sammy Guevara for the TNT Title

Scorpio Sky puts his near year-long unbeaten streak on the line versus Sammy Guevara for the TNT Title.

The great thing about Sammy’s second TNT Title run has been the quality of opponents that he has taken on and how there is always a chance he could lose the title week in and week out.

Wednesday night’s opponent, Scorpio Sky fits that bill as well.

Sky hasn’t done much in-ring on AEW television since Full Gear and this should be a very entertaining matchup that could truly go either way, depending on where AEW wants to go with Sammy and Scorpio moving forward.

Guevara is probably the odds on favorite to win this match but I can’t shake the feeling that a title change happens here.

Keith Lee is most likely going to be busy with Team Tazz for the next month or two but when he is done, he has made it clear that he is coming after the TNT Title.

That being said, that title should go around the waist of a heel sooner rather than later, and I can think of no more deserving wrestler than Scorpio Sky.

Next. William Regal makes a surprise appearance at AEW Revolution. dark

It won’t be clean, but it just feels like this is the spot to reestablish Scorpio Sky as a big-time player on the AEW landscape.  Winner: Scorpio Sky wins the TNT Title
