The Switchblade Era Begins
In his first match after officially becoming #AllElite, “Switchblade” Jay White takes on the aerial artist Komander. White made quite the impact on the April 5 edition of AEW Dynamite. “Absolute” Ricky Starks and Juice Robinson were supposed to settle the score one-on-one when Jay immediately stormed the ring and laid waste to the former FTW Champion.
It’s clear that once you’re Bullet Club, you’re Bullet Club for life as White and Robinson put everyone on the AEW roster on notice with their reunion on U.S. soil. Across from White will be the high-flying sensation Komander. The luchador put on quite an impressive AEW debut, showing everyone what he’s made of in the “Face of the Revolution” Ladder match.
This Wednesday, Komander has the opportunity to play spoiler if he can defeat the former IWGP World Heavyweight Champion in his first official match as part of the company. Will Komander do the unthinkable and defeat the Kiwi sensation? Or will Jay White notch his first win in All Elite Wrestling?
The War Is On
Wardlow is on a relentless warpath as he looks to reclaim the TNT Championship against the current champion Powerhouse Hobbs. The Champion has a lot to answer for. From plotting the break-in of “Mr. Mayhem’s,” car, with the help of Aaron Solo, to winning the TNT Title with the help of QT Marshall. That said, Hobbs has been absolutely dominant over his short stint as the titleholder, successfully defending the belt four times in dominant fashion.
Unfortunately for him, Wardlow is back and he’s not only out for revenge but he’s also aiming to become a three-time TNT Champion. Will Powerhouse Hobbs be successful in his fifth title defense? Or will Wardlow get the gold this Wednesday night on AEW Dynamite? Tune into TBS as it all goes down on this AEW Dynamite card!
