Will Ospreay (c) vs. Rey Fenix – AEW International Championship

Will Ospreay has proudly carried the AEW International Championship around his waist since Double or Nothing. Tonight, the champion goes one-on-one with a familiar face in Rey Fenix. This will be the first time they collide in an AEW ring.

Fenix had earned his shot at the International Championship by winning a fatal four-way number one contender’s match also featuring Jay Lethal, Orange Cassidy and Kyle O’Reilly last week on AEW Dynamite.

Mercedes Moné (c) vs. Zeuxis – AEW TBS Championship

Mercedes Moné’s AEW TBS Championship win celebration was ruined by Skye Blue on the Dynamite following Double or Nothing. The CEO would retain her title against Blue in a very good match later that night.

Tonight, Mercedes puts her title on the line against one-half of CMLL’s World Women’s Tag Team Champions, Zeuxis. How will the champion do in the lead-up to AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door?

Dustin Rhodes vs. Jack Perry – Winner advances to AEW Forbidden Door for TNT title

Adam Copeland’s injury at AEW Double or Nothing put the fate of the TNT title in jeopardy. Cope would be stripped of the title by EVP Bucks on the following Dynamite. Matthew and Nicholas would’ve crowned Jack Perry the new champion if not for Christopher Daniels’ announcement.

Perry finds himself in a TNT title qualifier against a very motivated Dustin Rhodes tonight on AEW Dynamite. “The Natural” tore into the “Scapegoat” following his win over Johnny TV this past Saturday on Collision.

Will Dustin move past Perry, or will it be the other way around?

RUSH in action on AEW Dynamite

RUSH interrupted MJF’s homecoming last week on Dynamite. Both men got into a brawl and had to separated by security. RUSH gets to take out his frustration against an unannounced opponent this week on Dynamite.

RUSH hasn’t competed on Dynamite since December 20, 2023. He lost to Swerve Strickland in their Continental Classic Gold League that night. It remains to be seen who RUSH faces in his Dynamite in-ring return.

TV Time with Chris Jericho, Big Bill & Private Party

Chris Jericho debuted “TV Time” two weeks ago on Dynamite. “The Learning Tree” was seen running into Private Party last Wednesday. Jericho had some advice for the trio, who politely declined his offer to be a part of the new stable.

Tonight, the FTW Champion, “Redwood” Big Bill and Bryan Keith welcome Zay and Quen to “TV Time.” Will Private Party accept Jericho’s offer to sit under the learning tree? We’ll find out tonight.

Trios match on AEW Dynamite

Orange Cassidy and Kyle O’Reilly seemingly formed an alliance last week on AEW Dynamite. Tonight, the duo join forces with ROH World Champion Mark Briscoe to take on Konosuke Takeshita, Roderick Strong and Kyle Fletcher in trios action.

Wrestlezone will have full coverage of Dynamite as it airs.
