Coming off a fantastic WrestleDream pay-per-view, AEW Dynamite will celebrate four years of exciting television with the debut of its newest roster member, Adam Copeland.
On Sunday, All Elite Wrestling honored Antonio Inoki by putting on arguably the best pay-per-view of 2023. WrestleDream was a card full of matches that delivered and ended with a closing segment that left the wrestling world talking when Adam Copeland (aka Edge) made his AEW debut.
As of now, there are only three announced segments in total for the show, but with one of those involving Adam Copeland, you can bet a lot of eyes will be on AEW Dynamite this Wednesday.
Let’s take a look at the announced segments for this week’s AEW Dynamite and what to expect from each.
Adam Copeland speaks
After making one of the most memorable debuts in AEW history, Adam Copeland will make his AEW television debut on Wednesday when he grabs a microphone and tells the world why he has arrived in AEW.
In case you missed it, Copeland’s AEW debut took place at the end of the WrestleDream pay-per-view when he saved Sting from an upcoming conchairto that Christian Cage was about to deliver to The Icon.
Copeland seems to have firmly aligned himself with Sting and Darby Allin, on the opposing side of his old friend and tag-team partner, Christian Cage. On Wednesday, we will find out if Copeland also has his sights on Christian’s TBS Title as well.
Rey Fenix vs. Nick Jackson for the International Title
Rey Fenix’s impromptu run as the International Champion continues on Wednesday as he steps into the ring against a very familiar opponent in Nick Jackson.
These two men have had many classic matches all over the world, but normally in a tag-team setting. This time they will match up in a singles match for what has become a very coveted title.
There is very little reason for a title change in this one. Jackson is already one-third of the Ring of Honor Six Man Champions, and he and his brother Matt just secured a future AEW Tag Team Title shot at WrestleDream over the weekend. So to have Jackson go over on Fenix here would be overkill.
If this match is anything like the Young Bucks and Lucha Bros tag team matches it will be a lot of fun. The contest will be very competitive, but Fenix will find a way to hold on to his title for at least one more week. Winner: Rey Fenix
Chris Jericho & Kenny Omega vs. Sammy Guevara & Konosuke Takeshita
Coming off a loss in a six-man tag team match at WrestleDream to Don Callis Family, Kenny Omega and Chris Jericho will once again team up and look to get back on track against Sammy Guevara and Konosuke Takeshita.
Don Callis’ new heel faction getting the victory at WrestleDream was the correct call as there is a need to establish them as credible threats in AEW. Sunday’s win, coupled with the recent wins that Konosuke Takeshita has picked up over Kenny Omega has gone a long way to make that happen.
Is it possible that Callis and company continue their winning ways here? Absolutely. But at some point, Kenny Omega needs to get back on track and pick up a win to keep things interesting. And that is where it feels like we are in this one. Winners: Kenny Omega & Chris Jericho
