All Elite Wrestling: Dynamite: April 10, 2024  Season 5, Ep 28

Tonight, in response to CM Punk’s incendiary comments on Ariel Helwani’s The MMA Hour last week, Tony Khan has decided to show the footage from backstage at All In that led to Punk’s firing. It’s a bizarre, ballsy move that has the wrestling world wondering what Tony is thinking. Besides that, we have Adam Copeland defending his title, The Rainmaker getting some TV time, Mariah May and Toni Storm throwing a champagne toast, and Dustin Rhodes trying to earn a title shot at Samoa Joe.

AEW Collision: April 6, 2024 (& Rampage April 5)  Season 1, Ep 41

As a study in contrasts, AEW offers House Of Black vs. an ad-hoc trio, the return of Yuka Sakazaki, Claudio in singles action, and main-event lucha libre. [more inside]

Special Event: Ring Of Honor: Final Battle 2023

It has been a wild year for Ring of Honor since last year's Final Battle. After tragically losing ROH mainstay Jay Briscoe in January this year, the company rebuilt itself following Tony Khan's 2022 purchase and resumed national tours. Talent from ROH and All Elite Wrestling have been mingling all year, and with the ROH World Championship and the Tag Team Championships locked down in AEW storylines, the show has compensated by adding emotionally rich grudge matches and some out-of-town spectacle to the normal lineup. Tonight's show, like all of Ring of Honor dating back to 2002, can be watched by members of Honor Club at the ROH website. [more inside]

Rampage and Collision were both pre-taped in Canada last week, so if the crowd seemed extra behind certain talent, now you know why. [more inside]
