Wednesday Night Wars: AEW Dynamite And WWE NXT Open Discussion Thread 5/11/20

Welcome to this week’s Wednesday Night Wars open discussion thread. This week it’s an AEW Dynamite featuring the long awaited clash of titans between Chris Jericho and Suge D, aka PINEAPPLE PETE, going up against an episode of NXT that includes a Tag Team Championship match and D-X making a “major announcement.” The announcement: suck it.

On tonight’s cards:
