The moment everyone has been waiting for has finally come. All Elite Wrestling has now officially debuted on TNT with Wednesday Night Dynamite. With a plethora of bouts on tap, including the crowning of the first-ever AEW Women’s Champion and a match months in the making, it was a historic first night.

Chris Jericho Sends A Message To Cody

Cody placed all opportunities on the line as he faced Sammy Guevara in the first match in the history of Dynamite. He sat down with Tony Schiavone prior to the match to make it clear that if he loses, he is out of the AEW World Championship match. Thankfully for Cody, he managed to sneak out with a victory despite inadvertently taking out Brandi Rhodes at one point during the match. As Cody shook the hand of Guevara, AEW World Champion Chris Jericho let it be known that this is his company, no one elses. He beat down Cody to the point where he had to be helped to the back by the ref and Brandi. Jericho ended it simply by saying, “You’re welcome”.

PAC Remains Undefeated Against The Reeling Hangman

PAC shocked the world at All Out when he made Kenny Omega pass out, leading to his first victory over one of the best in the world. This was his first match as a member of AEW, but it wasn’t always supposed to be. For fans who may forget, PAC and Hangman Page were destined to face off at Double or Nothing but it was not able to happen. So instead, it happened on the TNT debut. Hangman lost the biggest match of his career at All Out when he lost in the main event at All Out. This was a must-win for Page to get back on track. It was not the time, however. PAC hit Hangman with a low blow with referee Earl Hebner blinded, allowing him to hit the Black Arrow and then lock on the Brutalizer to put Hangman to sleep. PAC moves to 2-0.

The First-Ever Main Event: The Elite vs Jericho, Santana & Ortiz

A mess may perfectly highlight the first main event in the history of Wednesday Night Dynamite. It was The Elite, Kenny Omega, and The Young Bucks, taking on the team of Santana, Ortiz, and the reigning AEW World Champion Chris Jericho. Before long, Kenny Omega was completely taken out of the match by the returning Jon Moxley. The two men fought through the arena before Moxley would hit the Paradigm Shift DDT on Omega through a glass table. This would leave The Young Bucks handicapped against the trio. The Bucks did everything in their power to fend off this fresh trio but would suffer defeat via Judas Effect.

Before long, the beat down of The Bucks were on. Cody would make his way down to the ring to help his Elite brothers but Sammy Guevara would follow as well, hitting a low blow on Cody. Dustin Rhodes then following in hopes of evening the score. Then the big reveal came as Jake Hager (formerly known as Jack Swagger) came down to lay waste to Dustin and help the four out. The Elite would meet their match, being putting down completely as this new stable of sorts stood tall. We do not have all the answers yet, but it was a hell of a way to go off the air for the first time ever.

Dynamite of the Night: Riho makes history

We have an official AEW Women’s Champion. That woman is the 22-year-old veteran, Riho. Riho notched the first-ever “Dynamite of the Night” by making history and becoming the inaugural champion by defeating the favorite, Nyla Rose. Rose displayed incredible domination that made many around the world and inside the arena firmly believe there Nyla Rose would walk out champion. The underdog Riho would manage to prevail, hitting an incredible Northern Lights Suplex from the top rope, then hitting the Meteora to pull out the victory. Rose would go on a rampage following the match, laying out Michael Nakazawa and attempting to do the same to Riho. Instead, Riho was saved by Kenny Omega and could celebrate her incredible win.

AEW has officially made TNT their home and made a statement in doing so. While the start was by no means perfect, it was a beautiful start to this new beginning in professional wrestling.
