With less than two weeks until AEW heads across the pond to London, England for AEW All In at Wembley Stadium, tonight’s episode of AEW Dynamite confirmed three new matches on the card.
Chris Jericho finally gave an answer to Don Callis about joining the Don Callis Family — yes! Well, momentarily anyway. As Callis expected him to say no, he brought a new painting (done by Mel Coleman) that has Callis holding Jericho’s decapitated head — yikes. Shortly after, Konosuke Takeshita enters the ring with a returning Will Ospreay following suit to beat down Jericho.
After the beatdown, Renee Paquette caught up with Jericho, who challenged Ospreay to a singles match at All In, noting that they’ve been on a collision course since 2021 and now he’s going to embarrass him in front of his countrymen, friends, and family.
Additionally, Kenny Omega’s interview segment with Jim Ross ended in a sneak attack by Juice Robinson and Jay White that sent Omega to the hospital. In a promo, Hangman Adam Page (who appears to be drinking again) challenges White, Robinson, and Takeshita to a trios match against Omega, Page, and Kota Ibushi.
Finally, after a fiery opening match between Orange Cassidy and Blackpool Combat Club’s Wheeler Yuta, the rest of the BCC attack Cassidy and the Best Friends who come out to save him. They don’t get very far as the Lucha Bros storm the ring to even the odds. Finally, Eddie Kingston returns to AEW for the first time in months after being out for NJPW’s G1. He challenges the BCC (and their mystery opponents) to a Stadium Stampede match at All In against himself, the Lucha Bros, the Best Friends, and Cassidy.
The rest of the AEW All In card includes Adam Cole and MJF vs. Aussie Open for the ROH Tag Team Championships on Zero Hour, a four-way match for the AEW Women’s World Championship with Hikaru Shida (c), Toni Storm, Saraya, and Britt Baker. The Young Bucks and FTR are set for their rubber match, with the Young Bucks challenging for the AEW Tag Team Championships. A Coffin Match between Sting and Darby Allin vs. Swerve Strickland and AR Fox will also take place.
