After a spectacular post-All Out edition of AEW DynamiteAll Elite Wrestling looks to impress yet again just seven days away from their monumental show Grand Slam at New York’s Arthur Ashe Stadium. On this week’s AEW Dynamite card, the finals of the “Grand Slam” Tournament of Champions will be determined as the “Lionheart” goes one on one again with “The American Dragon,’ and the “Spanish God” looks to upset the heart and soul of AEW.

Plus, four of AEW’s best collide in tag team action. With only a week away from Grand Slam, the #AllElite promotion looks to ramp it up! Without further ado, let’s get right into it. It’s Wednesday night after all, and you know what that means! Time for some AEW Dynamite. Let’s run it down.

Full AEW Dynamite Card (9/13/22)

  • “Grand Slam” Tournament of Champions – Semifinals: Jon Moxley vs. Sammy Guevara
  • “Grand Slam” Tournament of Champions – Semifinals: Chris Jericho vs. Bryan Danielson
  • Toni Storm & Athena Hikaru Shida vs. Dr. Britt Baker, D.M.D. & Serena Deeb
  • “Jungle Boy” Jack Perry open challenge

Calm Before the Storm

Note: Due to an attack from Baker and Reba, Shida is not cleared to compete and has been replaced by Athena

This year’s All Out saw the crowning of Toni Storm as the AEW Interim Women’s World Champion and quite possibly the end of the friendship between Dr. Britt Baker, D.M.D., and her close associate Jamie Hayter. Jamie was literally seconds away from securing her first taste of championship gold in AEW when Britt pulled out the referee at the last moment. An argument would commence and Storm would capitalize on this by giving a DDT to both women, pinning Hayter to secure the win and the title.

While it was indeed every competitor for themselves, Hayter must’ve felt betrayed knowing what she’s done for Britt during her reign as the company’s top champion. Backstage, tensions were still high as the cameras caught a livid Hayter exiting the NOW Arena stating that she “wants nothing to do” with the doctor any longer. No matter the circumstances, Britt has got to get her act together as she teams up with “The Professor” Serena Deeb in tag team action against Toni and Hikaru Shida.

The interim champion is going into this match with a lot of momentum after she pulled out the win in an Eliminator Match against a very determined Penelope Ford. Fortunately for Britt, her partner also got a spectacular victory over Madison Rayne on last week’s AEW Rampage. With an opportunity to make a statement for both champion and challengers; how will both teams respond?

A Fight for the Finals

AEW loyalists will be in for quite the treat as the semifinals of the “Grand Slam” Tournament of Champions commences this Wednesday night with Bryan Danielson versus Chris Jericho, and Sammy Guevara versus Jon Moxley. On one side of the bracket you, have two men who tore each other part back at All Out. Jericho might’ve won the battle, but Danielson is looking to win the war and advance to the finals of the tourney.

On the other side of this momentous competition are Jon Moxley and Sammy Guevara. While these two are very familiar with each other, considering Sammy has been at Jericho’s side for a long time, the combatants haven’t quite met in the ring for a one-on-one showdown. This match between Mox and the high-flying Sammy Guevara has the potential to be a show-stealer. Four men, two finals spots, and one title; who will come out on top? Don’t you dare miss the proceedings live this Wednesday night only on TBS!
