Wednesday’s edition of AEW DYNAMITE delivered a night filled with intense competition, spotlighting the athlete’s quest for supremacy as WORLDS END on December 30th draws near. Jon Moxley now sits atop the Gold League with an impressive 12-point lead, following a decisive victory over Swerve Strickland. Rush and Jay White were not far behind, with each adding three points to their respective totals through their wins over Jay Lethal and Mark Briscoe.
The league standings saw a shake-up in the Blue League as well, where Andrade El Idolo triumphed over Brody King, planting himself at the top after the dust settled. With all competitors now three bouts deep, the road to WORLDS END is becoming clearer yet ever more challenging.
In the midst of the league’s battles, a new contest was announced for the upcoming event. The Golden Jets are set to challenge Big Bill and Ricky Starks for the prestigious AEW World Tag Team Championship at WORLDS END. This revelation came alongside Adam Page’s fiery exchange with Samoa Joe and a victory over Roderick Strong. However, Page’s night had a violent conclusion as he was attacked in the parking lot, providing a stark reminder that rivalries in AEW can escalate quickly.
Looking ahead to this Friday night, AEW RAMPAGE emanates from Arlington, TX, and promises to maintain the adrenaline rush, featuring a mix of compelling match-ups. The card includes AEW International Champion Orange Cassidy pairing with the revered Von Erichs – Ross and Marshall – to face Angelo Parker, Matt Menard, and Jake Hager in Trios action. In addition, the show will host a clash between Anna Jay and Red Velvet, marking their first battle since 2020.
The main event is shaping up to be a barnburner as well, with Top Flight and Action Andretti taking on Penta El Zero Miedo, El Hijo del Vikingo, and Komander, ensuring a high-flying extravaganza.
Orange Cassidy & The Von Erichs will be looking to tap into their Texas roots to fend off Parker, Menard, and Hager. With over a decade in the ring and multiple tag team championships under their belts, the Von Erich brothers carry a pedigree that could complement Cassidy’s unorthodox style.
On another front, Anna Jay and Red Velvet are both poised to make a statement as they seek to re-establish their momentum. Each competitor is eager to come out on top in what promises to be a fiercely competitive rematch.
Lastly, The Don Callis Family will be making their presence felt in tag team action, while the six-man showdown between Top Flight, Action Andretti, and their lucha libre adversaries promises to be a high-octane affair, dazzling fans with acrobatic prowess and in-ring wizardry.
As anticipation builds for RAMPAGE, the action can be caught at 10pm ET / 9pm CT on TNT, as well as internationally via AEWPlus.com.
