In the wake of the most recent episode of AEW Dynamite in Albany, New York, one AEW star has publicly confronted critics. This action-packed night saw Lucha Brothers triumph in a fierce main event, a three-way tag team match against Jon Moxley and Claudio Castagnoli of the Blackpool Combat Club, and Best Friends.
The chaotic aftermath, which involved an unanticipated announcement of Jon Moxley's participation in an AEW originals three-way match for Dynamite's 200th episode, has kept fans on the edge of their seats. Another notable segment included an intense match between Swerve Strickland and Darby Allin.
While Strickland emerged victorious, the conflict between these two may still be brewing, especially after Allin's ally, AR Fox, switched sides to join Strickland’s Mogul Embassy. This twist followed Fox's unsuccessful challenge against Orange Cassidy for the AEW International Championship.
Valkyrie's Botch Overshadows Baker's Win
Meanwhile, former AEW Women’s World Champion Dr. Britt Baker DMD also showcased her prowess, defeating Taya Valkyrie by submission. However, an alleged botch during the match has become a focal point for some viewers, in which Valkyrie attempted the Road to Valhalla, only to drop Baker gently onto the mat.
Undeterred, Valkyrie took to social media to address the ridicule, stating tersely, “All the trolls on my timeline right now grow up and goodnight”. In other news, AEW's next major event is set to take place in London, England, marking a significant milestone for the company.
On August 27th, AEW will host All In at the iconic Wembley Stadium. Even without any matches announced yet, over 70,000 tickets have already been snapped up, promising a packed house. Recent statements from a company representative suggest that this event is "definitely tracking to sell out," pointing towards a potentially record-breaking event in the history of AEW.
As such, the forthcoming weeks will undoubtedly bring high anticipation and fervor among the wrestling community worldwide.
