“The King” Battles a Samoan Killer
This matchup has been a long time coming. The moment Samoa Joe became a free agent, every professional wrestling fan out there started fantasizing about the potential matches he could have now that he is free to do as he pleases; and this is definitely atop their list. Fantasize no more, as this Wednesday night, fantasy becomes reality as New Japan Pro Wrestling’s “Final Boss” and new ROH World TV Champion Minoru Suzuki defends the gold against the violent “Samoan Submission Machine” Samoa Joe.
Two of the most physical, imposing, and intimidating figures this side of the business has to offer, finally collide one on one in the middle of the squared circle. Expect blood, expect violence, and above all else, expect no mercy. It’s Suzuki vs Joe for the ROH World TV Championship this Wednesday live on TBS!
Putting a Leash on the “War Dog”
Yet again, Wardlow made his presence felt in a very big way despite being ordered to stay at home by “The Salt of the Earth” MJF. On last week’s Dynamite, Wardlow’s presence single-handedly gutted the room as “The Chairman” Shawn Spears was going toe to toe with one Capt. Shawn Dean. The contest between the two was dominated by Spears for the majority of the match.
However, once Wardlow tore through security and entered the arena, the tides would turn dramatically. Wardlow distracted Spears, and Shawn Dean rolled up The Chairman for the three count, wanting to seize the opportunity. Spears was livid, and it seemed like he blamed MJF for the whole debacle.
Of course, MJF will not stand for this. The three-time Dynamite Diamond Ring Winner is now looking to take matters into his own hands. Shawn Dean has one up on both MJF and Spears, and Maxwell isn’t particularly happy about that.
Regardless, this Wednesday night, MJF gets a shot a redemption, for both him and Spears, as he battles Capt. Shawn Dean on this week’s Dynamite. Will MJF avenge both losses or will Capt, Shawn Dean achieve one more win on the brash and cocky Pillar of AEW?
