Tonight’s edition of AEW Dynamite takes place at the American Bank Center in Corpus Christi, Texas. It’s the last episode of Dynamite in 2019 beacuse they are not doing a show next Wednesday on Christmas Day. There will be a live Dynamite show in two weeks on New Year’s Day.
Here’s what AEW has advertised for tonight with some quick predictions by me for all six matches.
* The Lucha Brothers vs. Kenny Omega and “Hangman” Adam Page
It was announced that this will be the opener. The story is that Page may be turning on Omega, so I expect something where they make a mistake caused by Page and Lucha Bros capitalize to win the match. The heel turn of Page probably won’t happen officially tonight, but at some point in January, I expect it to take place.
* Awesome Kong in action
This should be an easy win for Kong over whoever the opponent wins. It will likely be a match that goes two minutes or less.
* Cody and Darby Allin vs. The Butcher and The Blade (w/The Bunny)
Cody lost with QT Marshall as his partner against The Butcher and The Blade last week. Allin showed up to offer his hand to Cody as a partner. I expect Cody and Allin to win this match. I like how Allin has won the fans over during his AEW run. Having him team up with a popular guy like Cody is a smart move.
* AEW Women’s Championship #1 Contendership: Kris Statlander vs. Dr. Britt Baker
Hey, did you know Britt is a dentist? I think we know. I’m going with Statlander here. I think the alien gimmick she is doing is ridiculous and lame, but she’s talented in the ring. I think Statlander wins here and she’ll probably beat Riho for the AEW World Title too.
* Chris Jericho vs. Jungle Boy
This is is not for Jericho’s AEW World Title and it’s also a match with 10-minute time limit. I expect Jungle Boy to come close to winning multiple times, but I think Jericho will put him away around 9:45 or so. That way it looks like a close finish.
* AEW World Tag Team Championships: SCU’s Frankie Kazarian and Scorpio Sky vs. The Young Bucks (Nick and Matt Jackson)
There’s a lot of history here as Matt Jackson tweeted a few days ago.
This match will be outstanding. I have no doubt about that. If the champs retain that’s fine with me, but I get the feeling that AEW wants to end Dynamite this year with a big moment and a big celebration with the popular Young Bucks team winning the AEW Tag Team Titles.
I will have a review of AEW Dynamite up on TJRWrestling later tonight. I don’t think it will be live, but I’m expecting to get it done later tonight.
