The storied rivalry between professional wrestling titans, Kenny Omega and Chris Jericho, has added another chapter in the annals of the wrestling world. Their competition predates the formation of AEW, with their initial clash taking place at the illustrious Wrestle Kingdom 12 in January 2018.

This event witnessed Jericho venturing outside the WWE umbrella for the first time in nearly two decades, only to face defeat at the hands of Omega, who successfully retained his coveted IWGP US Championship. Their paths would cross again in a high-octane encounter at AEW's inaugural pay-per-view, Double Or Nothing, in May 2019.

On that occasion, Jericho managed to level the score by claiming victory. Both superstars, despite their differences in the ring, have been united by a common adversarial thread: the manipulative Don Callis. Their shared history with Callis, marked by betrayals and uneasy alliances, has seen both men regret their association with him.

WrestleDream's Unexpected Outcome

The recent WrestleDream event threw another curveball in this intertwined tale of rivalries and alliances. Teaming up with Kota Ibushi, Omega and Jericho locked horns with the Don Callis Family, represented by the formidable trio of Konosuke Takeshita, Sammy Guevara, and Will Ospreay.

The match concluded with the scales tipping in favor of the Callis Family. Yet, the story is far from over. In the aftermath of WrestleDream, AEW's President, Tony Khan, made a game-changing announcement during a press conference.

The upcoming fourth anniversary of Dynamite is set to host a colossal tag team showdown: Kenny Omega and Chris Jericho will unite against the dynamic duo of Konosuke Takeshita and Sammy Guevara. Furthermore, the anniversary spectacle promises more surprises.

Adam Copeland, fresh off his unexpected WrestleDream debut for AEW, is slated to address the fans on this monumental Wednesday night. For wrestling aficionados, the upcoming Dynamite anniversary episode promises drama, action, and history in the making. Stay tuned for more updates on this riveting saga.
