The real-life bad blood has now crossed over onto AEW television.
Dynamite Grand Slam returned to New York City for a huge night of action that saw four title matches on the show. Eddie Kingston kicked off proceedings with Claudio Castagnoli as he captured the Ring of Honor World Championship from his hated rival for the first time in his career.
Toni Storm only added to her recent misery by failing to dethrone Saraya for the AEW Women’s Title but there was better news for Rey Fenix as he defeated Jon Moxley for the AEW International Championship despite that not being part of the original plan.
The main event of the show saw MJF do what he came to do as he choked out Samoa Joe to retain his AEW World Title. After Dynamite aired, Rampage Grand Slam was taped to air on the 22nd of September and there was a huge feud started on the show between former tag team partners.
AEW Rampage Grand Slam spoilers ahead
AEW had been advertising that Mike Santana would be in action on Rampage and he defeated Boulder of the Iron Savages in the opening contest.
Fightful Select has reported that also on the show a feud was started between Santana and his former long-time tag team partner Ortiz. The two men are believed to have had a fallout before Santana’s serious knee injury that kept him out of the ring for over a year.
AEW sources noted that although the two men are no longer friends, they agreed to team at All In when they joined the Blackpool Combat Club in Stadium Stampede before starting a feud with each other. The two men have taken very public shots at each other on social media in recent weeks but it looks like they are able to put any personal bad feelings aside to make money out of the situation – something that has famously not always been the case in AEW with other stars most notably CM Punk and The Elite.
