Mercedes Moné double championship celebration

Mercedes Moné made history at AEW Forbidden Door. The CEO beat CMLL’s Stephanie Vaquer to become the TBS and NJPW Strong Women’s Champion. Tonight, Mercedes returns to Dynamite for a celebration worthy of her double title win.

Speaking of returns…

Brit Baker returns to AEW Dynamite

The UBS Arena exploded with excitement to witness the return of Dr. Britt Baker. The former AEW Women’s World Champion showed up to interrupt Mercedes Moné following her title for title win over Stephanie Vaquer. Britt told AEW cameras she’ll address her return this week on AEW Dynamite.

Will Ospreay (c) vs. Daniel Garcia – AEW International Championship

Will Ospreay may have failed to win the AEW World Championship, but the Aerial Assassin now has to focus on keeping the International title around his waist. Ospreay told Garcia during their interaction last week he’ll put his title on the line on 7/3 Dynamite. Can Garcia dethrone Ospreay, or will the champion prevail?

Hangman Page shows up on AEW Dynamite?

Hangman Page was last seen in action at AEW Revolution 2024. The Cowboy was suspended by Matthew and Nicholas Jackson in an angle that gave him some time off for personal reasons. Fightful reported last month that Hangman is set to make his return soon.

AEW has teased his return with a vignette in the build-up to Dynamite this week. The road to Blood and Guts kicks off tonight. Does that mean the former AEW World Champion makes his return in time to set up a major match for the TV special?
