AEW Dynamite emanates from the UBS Arena at Belmont Park, as All Elite Wrestling makes its return to the city of Long Island, New York. Let’s preview another rousing edition of Dynamite as The Owen Hart Foundation Men’s and Women’s Tournaments commence. Included in these matches will be the first singles encounter between Darby Allin and Jeff Hardy on AEW Dynamite. “The Salt of the Earth” will also name his terms for his match against “Mr. Mayhem” in his hometown.

Plus, Long Island’s own John Silver battles “The Best in the World” CM Punk. AEW will ensure that the Concrete Jungle known as New York will have its cage rattled with another edition of its premier wrestling program.

Hometown Hustle

Wardlow has endured and conquered every obstacle MJF has put in his way, thus far. He dispatched The Butcher, defeated Lance Archer, and astoundingly put down the debuting W. Morrissey just last week. The “War Dog” has one thing left on his mind; achieve his freedom and get his hands on the very man that caused all this.

Surprisingly, MJF willingly obliged and will grant Wardlow the match he’s been clamoring to have for months now. However, this contest will not be without hoops to jump through. MJF will indeed face Wardlow sooner rather than later. But it will be contested under the ruling of his choosing. This Wednesday night, we shall find out what terms will be set, and what other tricks “The Salt of the Earth” has up his sleeve.

An Enigma Battles a Daredevil

The term “dream match” has been thrown around quite a lot in the sport of professional wrestling. However, Jeff Hardy versus Darby Allin must be considered one of the legitimate dream matchups that have yet to happen, until this Wednesday night AEW Dynamite, of course. These two share glaring similarities; both love putting their bodies on the line and taking every risk that is humanly possible to take.

While these two have been steady allies in their battles against the AFO, that partnership will be set aside for the chance to advance in the inaugural Owen Hart Foundation Men’s Tournament. Two high-flying competitors, one spot to fill; who will defy all the odds? Find out this Wednesday night AEW Dynamite live on TBS!
