All Elite Wrestling: Dynamite: AEW Dynamite 8/3 and Rampage 8/5
August 3, 2022 3:45 PM - Season 3, Episode 44 - Subscribe

The eyes of pro-wrestling fans have been on the competition the past few weeks, as HHH/Paul Leveque takes over for the departing Vinnie Mac. How will AEW stake their own claim for viewers? With an episode focused partly on WWE alums, it seems.

Announced for tonight:

--The Undisputed Elite make their return
--Orange Cassidy vs. Jay Lethal
--DUMPSTER MATCH: The Acclaimed vs. The Gunn Club
--ThunderStorm (Thunder Rosa & Toni Storm) vs Britt Baker & Jamie Hayter
--Christian Cage vs Matt Hardy
--Chris Jericho vs Wheeler Yuta – Winner Faces Jon Moxley for interim AEW World Championship

Some things were announced today that hints towards one thing AEW wants to do to distinguish themselves -- they've hired Madison Rayne (formerly of Impact) to be talent relations specifically w/r/t booking women's wrestling, and registered a new trademark -- "AEW Wrestling Women", I think? -- for television purposes.

Another thing I think they should do immediately is PUSH THE TRIOS TITLE TO THE MOON. Factions factions factions. They're good for developing secondary characters and AEW's factions are currently much better established then whatever WWE is doing with Edge and Judgment Day.

Man I would NOT have guessed that Hardy and Christian had that pace of a match in 'em these days.

An unalloyed positive. She was a big part of the reason that TNA/Impact has had the best women's division in American pro wrestling for the last decade.

(Another big part was Maria Kanellis, whose Women's Wrestling Army is starting well.)
