During a conference call to promote Full Gear last week, Cody Rhodes shot down the idea of a “midcard title”, but did say AEW would soon be introducing another “prize” for wrestlers to chase other than the World and World Tag Team championships.
On the edition of Dynamite which came our way earlier tonight (Nov. 13), we learned about something the roster will be fighting over for the next two weeks. Next Wednesday’s show will feature a Dynamite Dozen Battle Royale. Twelve men will compete; the last two left standing will face each other in singles action on the Thanksgiving Eve show, with the winner getting the Dynamite Diamond Ring.
No word on who’s in the battle royale just yet, but we should at least some of the entrants over the course of this week.
There were also some straight forward matches made for Nov. 20. Jon Moxley made quick work of Kenny Omega’s pal Michael Nakazawa in the opener of tonight’s show, and as part of his pilgrimage to wipe AEW off the earth one broken neck at a time, herthrew out a challenge to the locker room:

He didn’t have any takers initially, but after Darby Allin beat Peter Avalon & Shawn Spears in a Triple Threat, Allin had a message for Mox:
There's our answer... @JonMoxley @DarbyAllin #AEWDynamite pic.twitter.com/R9PAZ9sGVc— All Elite Wrestling on TNT (@AEWonTNT) November 14, 2019
The battle between Proud -N- Powerful and The Young Bucks continued to rage tonight, too. Next week, Santana & Ortiz get Private Party; Isiah Kassidy & Marq Quen were the only thing that got P -N- P to stop kicking Matt & Nick Jackson’s asses backstage in Nashville.
That’s next week, though. Get caught up on everything that went down this week right here.
