All Elite Wrestling: Dynamite: Dynamite 10/18/23 and Rampage 10/20/23  Season 5, Ep 3

Dynamite celebrates returning to it's regular slot by hosting a battle royale, a joshi queen, and featuring Kenny Omega and Jay White in two separate matches. But it might be words that hurt worst this time, as a few talking segments have potential to turn on the melodrama this week. [more inside]

AEW Collision: October 14, 2023  Season 1, Ep 18

All the main feuds on Collision get rolled into a big spicy goulash this week, also three title defenses, the return of some faces that haven't gotten much TV time in a while, and CJ and Miro flirt in the weirdest way. (This post is going up late because of NY Comic Con, so some commentary borrowed from Wrestling Observer.) [more inside]

All Elite Wrestling: Dynamite: Dynamite 10/10 and Rampage 10/13: TITLE TUESDAY  Season 5, Ep 2

Your eyes do not deceive you, although your TV channel guide might, as TNT did a piss-poor job of noting the schedule change due to sport. Dynamite is once again going head-to-head with NXT tonight. Since HHH decided to throw down hard and fill the Performance Center with top names, Tony Khan has gone on his own offensive (and has been playing hard on Twitter this week) and booked a free 730PM (EST) Buy-In on YouTube plus gotten clearance to run 10 extra minutes with an exciting 6-match card.

AEW Collision: October 7, 2023  Season 1, Ep 17

Things AEW is not afraid to do repeatedly: (1) Make tag-team wrestling important. (2) Give someone signed away from WWE some good runway time to build to their first official match. (3) Hurt Darby Allin very badly. [more inside]

All Elite Wrestling: Dynamite: Dynamite 9/27 and Rampage 9/29  Season 4, Ep 52

I decided a while ago to partition Dynamite's "seasons" to begin the first week of October (since that's the week Dynamite first premiered), and that means tonight is the season finale and this Sunday's WrestleDream is like the bonus content. This week, AEW (and their co-brand partner NJPW) will do their best to whet your appetite for the PPV. [more inside]

AEW Collision: September 9, 2023  Season 1, Ep 13

If tonight's episode of Collision seems a bit heavy on the promos, it's because Tony has AEW Grand Slam in two weeks and is down one Zaslav-approved headliner. Not to worry, he's going to fill the gap with tournament semi-finals, title defenses and a quartet of luchadors! [more inside]

AEW Collision: September 2, 2023  Season 1, Ep 12

And so it has come to pass: Sightly more than two years after CM Punk became All Elite, Tony Khan announced his immediate termination, with cause, for starting a backstage fight with Jack Perry at ALL IN last week. Inexcusably, inarguably, in full view of security cameras, other talent, and Papa Tony himself. Expect crowd reactions like no other in Chicago for Collision tonight and All Out tomorrow!

Special Event: All Elite Wrestling presents ALL IN (2023)

Five years ago, Cody Rhodes made a bet with Dave Meltzer that an indie wrestling show could sell 10,000 tickets, and then he and the Young Bucks and Kenny Omega changed the business. This year, All Elite Wrestling shipped 81,000 tickets for a single night at Wembley Stadium, breaking the paid attendance world record for a pro-wrestling event to stage "The Biggest Event in Wrestling History".
