Wednesday Night Wars: AEW Dynamite And NXT Open Discussion Thread (1/8/20)

It’s a new year, and the Wednesday Night Wars are back at full strength. After a week in which AEW Dynamite dominated the ratings (because they were up against an awards clip show), NXT’s back with the start of the Dusty Rhodes Classic. Can an “anniversary edition” of Dynamite with a tribute to legends of Memphis wrestling hold up?

On tonight’s cards:

AEW Dynamite

  • AEW Women’s Championship Match: Riho (c) vs. Kris Statlander
  • Sammy Guevara vs. Christopher Daniels
  • Jurassic Express vs. Best Friends and Orange Cassidy
  • The Rhodes vs. Lucha Bros.
  • Jon Moxley gives his answer to the Inner Circle
  • Tribute to the legends of Memphis wrestling
