Wednesday Night Wars: AEW Dynamite And NXT Open Discussion Thread (10/16/19)

Welcome to week three of the Wednesday Night Wars between All Elite Wrestling Dynamite on TNT and WWE NXT live on USA Network. We continue to navigate this exciting new era for pro wrestling, where they’ve decided to put all the good stuff in one four-hour long two-hour block in the middle of the week.

Tonight’s cards, as we know them.

AEW Dynamite

  • Philadelphia Street Fight for the AEW World Championship: Chris Jericho (c) vs. Darby Allin
  • AEW Women’s Championship Match: Riho (c) vs. Dr. Britt Baker DMD
  • AEW Tag Team Championship Tournament Match: Jurassic Express vs. Lucha Bros.
  • AEW Tag Team Championship Tournament Match: SCU vs. Best Friends
  • Jon Moxley and PAC (who we’re calling Poxley) vs. Hangman Adam Page and Kenny Omega (Showdown at the KO Corral?)


  • Tommaso Ciampa returns to the ring vs. Angel Garza
  • Tegan Nox returns to NXT, since I guess she’s already done in UK?
