After a rap where Max Caster called the AEW Tag champs “The Young Cucks”, we got the 4Way between Caster’s The Acclaimed, Varsity Blondes, Jurassic Express & #1 ranked SCU to see who would face the Bucks on next Wednesday’s Dynamite.
The big story in the division is that Frankie Kazarian & Christopher Daniels of SCU have vowed to split up after their next loss. So there was some question as to why they needed to take part in the Title Eliminator in the first place.
Turns out it didn’t matter.
And that’s only one of the title matches on the May 12 edition of Dynamite. We already knew about the IWGP United States championship match between Jon Moxley & Yuji Nagata - a dream showdown that Mox turned up the heat on with this promo...
#AEWDynamite Wed, May 12 LIVE, #YujiNagata returns to @tntdrama for the 1st time in nearly 23 years to face @JonMoxley for the @njpwglobal U.S. Championship!— All Elite Wrestling (@AEW) May 6, 2021

But we’re also getting a TNT championship clash, which was announced with Miro’s latest killer line: “The man who doesn’t mind dying meets the man who doesn’t mind killing him.” The catch to this one is that if Darby Allin can’t compete - and Ethan Page & Scorpio Sky made sure there’s at least some question about that - he’ll forfeit the belt.
Seems like a hell of card, no?
