Former WWE Superstar Turns Heel, New Tag Team Champions Are Crowned, More Matches Announced For Forbidden Door
AEW Dynamite took place in St. Louis, Missouri, this week as the road to the Forbidden Door pay-per-view gets shorter and shorter.
Several matches were announced before the show, including a “Hair vs. Hair” match between Chris Jericho and Ortiz. A ladder match for the AEW Tag Team Championship between Jurassic Express and the Young Bucks was also scheduled for Wednesday.
That being said, let’s take a look at the five biggest stories from this week’s show.
#5 Miro advances in the All-Atlantic Championship Tournament
After Pac advanced to the four-way match to crown the first-ever All-Atlantic champion at Forbidden Door last week, Miro had the opportunity to cement his spot in a battle against Ethan Page.
The Bulgarian star defeated the former IMPACT World Tag Team Champion to clinch his ticket to the big event on June 26.
#4 More Forbidden Door Matches Confirmed
As the AEW x NJPW pay-per-view draws closer, more matches have been booked for the show on this week’s episode of Dynamite.
NJPW’s Will Ospreay will go one-on-one with Orange Cassidy at the pay-per-view as Thunder Rosa defends the AEW Women’s World Championship against Toni Storm.
#3 Former Inner Circle member reunites with Chris Jericho
At the end of the “Hair vs. Hair” match between Chris Jericho and Ortiz, controversy erupted when Fuego Del Sol hit the ring and attacked the Proud & Powerful member with a bat while the referee was distracted.
The action allowed Jericho to pick up the win and keep his hair intact. It was then revealed that former Inner Circle associate Sammy Guevara was under the mask, eventually realigning with The Demo God.
#2 New AEW Tag Team Champions crowned on Dynamite
After the Hardys were pulled from the match earlier in the week, it was AEW Tag Team Champions Jungle Boy & Luchasaurus and the Young Bucks in the main event of the ladder match.
After a wild contest, Matt and Nick Jackson rose through the ranks and became the first ever two-time AEW World Tag Team Champions in AEW history.
#1 Christian Cage turns heel on Jungle Boy
After the Ladder match ended on Dynamite, Christian Cage went to help Jungle Boy in the ring but instead grabbed him from behind and threw an Unprettier in the middle of the ring.
Cage, who had guided Jungle Boy and Luchsaurus, eventually turned on his heels before launching a tirade of abuse towards the 25-year-old’s family sitting in the front row.
