AEW Dynamite: Saint Patrick’s Day Slam Preview and Predictions

AEW Dynamite is back this Wednesday and will broadcast its Saint Patrick’s Day Slam episode live on TBS from San Antonio, Texas.

Last week’s Dynamite gave us three title matches, the in-ring debut of Jon Moxley and Bryan Danielson as a tag team, a women’s title eliminator match, and the AEW debut of Jeff Hardy.

We also saw that despite his loss to AEW Champion, Adam Page at Revolution, Adam Cole is not done with the “Hangman” just yet.

We also had the pleasure of seeing that not only can Wardlow wrestle, but the big man can cut a promo as well as he declared himself free from MJF from this point forward.

And finally, we saw the end of the Inner Circle and the formation of the very poorly named Jericho Appreciation Society.

With four announced matches on this week’s Saint Patrick’s Day Slam card, including two title matches, this week’s AEW Dynamite promises to be another fun, frenetic two hours of professional wrestling.

What should we expect from the four announced matches on AEW Dynamite’s Saint Patrick’s Day Slam?

Jon Moxley & Bryan Danielson vs Chuck Taylor and Wheeler Yuta

After a successful debut as a tag team on last week’s Dynamite against The Workhorsemen, Jon Moxley and Bryan Danielson will get a step up in competition when they take on Chuck Taylor and Wheeler Yuta of the Best Friends.

Unfortunately for Taylor and Yuta not even a Danhausen curse will be able to save them in this match.

Mox and Danielson will get a tougher test this week and will be pushed a little harder.  But at the end of the day, William Regal’s perfect tag team will be impressive once again with their second straight win in the tag team division.  Winners: Jon Moxley and Bryan Danielson

Adam Cole & ReDRagon vs Adam Page & Jurassic Express

An incensed Adam Cole cut into “Hangman” Adam Page’s interview time last week to express his discontent with Page’s “fluke” win over him at Revolution.

But instead of asking for a rematch for the AEW Championship he instead asked for a six-man tag team match.

On the surface, it seems kind of silly that Cole would ask for this match instead of a title shot, but when you take a closer look it is more about Cole playing mind games with Page, as Cole’s plan was to have the Young Bucks be his partners for this match for the sole purpose of messing with Adam Page’s head.

The head games, however, backfired on Cole when the Young Bucks turned down his request to tag with him against “Hangman.”

So now Cole not only lost a second chance to win the AEW Title, but he also was not able to talk the Young Bucks into messing with Page’s head.

So with all the odds stacked against them look for Cole and ReDRagon to overcome the odds and steal a win.  In doing so ReDRagon will set themselves up to get a shot at Jungle Boy and Luchasaurus in a standard AEW Tag Team Title match and Adam Cole can then claim a rematch with “Hangman” for the AEW World Title.  Winners: Adam Cole and ReDRagon

Wardlow vs Scorpio Sky for the TNT Title

Wardlow will look to take the TNT Title from Scorpio Sky just seven days after Sky’s win over Sammy Guevara to capture the aforementioned title.

Wardlow is on a rocket-like trajectory in AEW.  He is over with the fans, is a machine in the ring, and showed off his skills on the microphone with a good promo last week as well.

And while a straight-up one-on-one match between the two would most likely lead to a title change, that is not what we are going to get on Wednesday night.

MJF is going to be back on AEW television this week and he is undoubtedly going to have a hand in making sure that Wardlow does not walk out with the TNT Title.

The status of the Pinnacle is up in the air right now.  FTR fired Tully Blanchard out of the blue last week, so it is hard to say where their heads are at.

Wardlow has announced that he is no longer part of the Pinnacle last week as well.

So that just leaves MJF and Shawn Spears and they could use some backup.

In a surprise move a few weeks ago, AEW exercised their option on the seldom-used Brian Cage.  This would be a great spot to reintroduce Cage and also set up some matches that Wardlow will have to win in order to get his freedom from MJF.

Some combination of MJF, Spears, and Cage will cost Wardlow this match, extending the well-deserved title reign of Scorpio Sky.   Winner: Scorpio Sky

Thunder Rosa vs Britt Baker for the AEW Women’s Title in a Steel Cage Match

Wrestling fans around the world were upset and/or confused about Britt Baker retaining the AEW Women’s Title at Revolution.

But there was a very good reason for it.

And that reason is so that promotion can crown Thunder Rosa as the new AEW Women’s Champion in her hometown of San Antonio this Wednesday in their first-ever women’s steel cage match.

Britt Baker has been built into a star in AEW, but her title reign has grown stale as she has beaten the majority of the babyfaces on the women’s roster.

It is time for Baker to step back and allow the promotion to continue to build up some more of its women’s division roster and provide some fresh matchups at the top of the women’s division’s card.

Next. Introducing new fans to the greatness of William Regal. dark

Much like their meeting on last year’s Saint Patrick’s Day Slam show where Thunder Rosa beat Baker in their classic lights out, unsanctioned match, Rosa will again pick up another signature win, this time winning the AEW Women’s Championship.  Winner: Thunder Rosa
