Wednesday Night Wars: AEW Dynamite And NXT Open Discussion Thread (2/19/20)

Welcome to this week’s Wednesday Night Wars open discussion thread, featuring the fallout from NXT TakeOver: Portland up against an AEW Dynamite from Atlanta featuring a Tag Team Battle Royal, a Steel Cage Match and the AEW in-ring debut of Jeff Cobb.

On tonight’s cards:

AEW Dynamite

  • Steel Cage Match: Cody vs. Wardlow
  • Jon Moxley vs. Jeff Cobb
  • AEW Tag Team Championship Match: Hangman & Omega vs. The Lucha Bros
  • Tag Team #1 Contendership Battle Royal


  • Velveteen Dream vs. Roderick Strong
  • NXT Cruiserweight Championship Match: Jordan Devlin (c) vs. Lio Rush
  • Chelsea Green vs. Kayden Carter
  • Some kind of fallout from Johnny Gargano’s heel turn at TakeOver: Portland

Johnny Gargano shocked the NXT Universe at TakeOver: Portland when he bashed Tommaso Ciampa with the NXT Championship, bringing The Blackheart’s quest to reclaim Goldie and his life to a screeching halt. Why did Gargano attack Ciampa just weeks removed from their tag team reunion at Worlds Collide? Will Johnny Wrestling explain himself?
