Wednesday Night Wars: AEW Dynamite And NXT Open Discussion Thread (2/12/20)

Welcome to this week’s Wednesday Night Wars open discussion thread, featuring the go-home NXT before TakeOver: Portland going head-to-head with an AEW Dynamite from Austin featuring championship matches in the women’s and tag team divisions.

On tonight’s cards:

AEW Dynamite

  • AEW Women’s Championship Match: Riho (c) vs. Nyla Rose
  • AEW Tag Team Championship Match: Kenny Omega and Hangman Adam Page (c) vs. SCU
  • Sammy Guevara vs. Dustin Rhodes
  • Jon Moxley vs. Santana in an “eye for an eye match”
  • MJF vs. Jungle Boy


  • Candice LeRae vs. Dakota Kai
  • Johnny Gargano vs. Cameron Grimes
  • NXT Champion Adam Cole vs. KUSHIDA in a non-title match
  • Velveteen Dream is back and doing things!

His Purple Highness was out for payback after The Undisputed ERA put him on the shelf last October, also making things personal with the man who dethroned him as NXT North American Champion, Roderick Strong. Though Dream stood tall while wearing tights bearing the images of Strong’s wife and son, Strong and his cohorts made it clear that their issues were far from settled.
