Before last night’s episode of AEW Dynamite, President and CEO Tony Khan tweeted that the “balance of power in wrestling will shift tonight.” via a tweet. This got fans speculating that some huge announcement could take place.
“Tonight we have a great lineup for #AEWDynamite Live on TNT at 8pm ET/7pm CT! For the rest of 2020, #AEW will keep delivering great matches on Wednesday Nights + there are massive surprises ahead! Please join us on TNT tonight, the balance of power in wrestling will shift tonight.”
Khan was asked by PWinsider.com to clarify the tweet. The CEO issued the following statement:
“There’s more to come, Pac coming back is the beginning of a huge push for the rest of the year, as I said in my last tweet just now. Balance of power in storyline refers to Eddie’s strong power base as a character which could be threatened, but it also refers to the big push AEW is making for the rest of the year into and through December and into 2021.”
PAC made his AEW return at the end of Dynamite, setting up a feud with Eddie Kingston. They also teased a Shaquille O’Neal-Cody Rhodes feud as well.
Khan posted the following after Dynamite went off the air.
“Thank you everyone who watched #AEWDynamite tonight! It’s great to get Pac back in AEW! We’ve made some big announcements & huge matches for next week & for weeks to come into December. Tonight opened a new chapter, I promise indelible moments on Dynamite are still coming in 2020.”
