Preview: AEW Dynamite (1/8/20)

AEW Dynamite

After an electric start to the New Year, AEW Dynamite returns with another stacked card for the young decade and the crowd at the Landers Center in Southaven, MS. To think this will be one year to the day that AEW all started with that one press conference in Jacksonville is hard to believe. What a ride it has been, and will continue to be it seems.

This week will be a “Tribute to Legends of Memphis Wrestling” as well, adding a little unique flavor to an already action-packed night. We will also be hearing the answers from Jon Moxley and Cody on their individual situations. Furthering those two excellent narratives should also break up the five matches on the card nicely.

But let’s jump right into what we’ll see tonight on AEW Dynamite.

Tribute to Legends of Memphis Wrestling

With so many great names affixed to this graphic, it is hard not to get excited for a celebration of wrestling history like this one. A little out of place perhaps, not landing in Memphis as one might imagine but still a great effort to celebrate the wrestling history that influenced the wrestling world before some of these wrestlers in AEW took their first step. In some cases that is both figurative and literal. But regardless of all of that, seeing AEW celebrating history like this without having it be celebrating their own history like WWE tends to do is a refreshing sight.
