Welcome to this week’s Wednesday Night Wars open discussion thread. This week it’s an AEW Dynamite featuring Cody Rhodes’ first defense of the TNT Championship and the artists formerly known as The Revival against an episode of NXT featuring the finals of the (Interim) Cruiserweight Championship tournament, Candice LeRae vs. Mia Yim, and more.

On tonight’s cards:

AEW Dynamite

  • TNT Championship Match: Cody (Rhodes) (c) vs. Jungle (Jack Perry) Boy

  • Nyla Rose vs. Big Swole
  • Tony Schiavone interviews FTR
  • Chris Jericho vs. Colt Cabana


  • Interim NXT Cruiserweight Title Tournament Finals Match: Drake Maverick vs. El Hijo del Fantasma
  • hopefully nobody else getting abducted by luchadores in the Full Sail parking lot (or attacked by them in the ring) (during tournament finals matches)
