AEW Dynamite is back for another action-packed installment of professional wrestling.  Before we begin, it is worth noting that this week’s show suffered a last minute move to Blue Cross Arena in Rochester, New York.  The current Covid-19 pandemic is wreaking havoc around the world and it is understandable that Dynamite will be behind closed doors for the foreseeable future.  A big thank you is reserved to not just AEW, but much of the wrestling world for providing us with entertainment during what is no doubt a troublesome time.

There’s a couple of big things to cover in this week’s preview, so let’s get to it!

The Butcher & The Blade W/The Bunny vs Jurassic Express W/Marko Stunt

The Butcher & The Blade (Pepper Parks and Andy Williams) have become something of a solid tag team.  They have a great look, good tag team chemistry and a more than decent valet in The Bunny.  They’ll be squaring off with the Jurassic Express (Jungle Boy and Luchasaurus).  A very entertaining tag team, this is sure to be a fun match.  Expect Marko Stunt to square off with The Bunny at some point.

Best Friends vs Lucha Brothers

Rey Fenix and Pentagon Jr. are two of the best wrestlers in the world today.  It is therefore no surprise that they form one of the world’s best tag teams (if not the best) in the Lucha Brothers.  They’ll be coming up against a team in Best Friends (Trent and Chuck Taylor) who beat them back in November.  As this feud truly heated up at AEW Revolution when both teams got involved in the great PAC versus Orange Cassidy match, it is only fitting that both men are in supporting roles for this match.  Expect a brawl.

The Exalted One Will Be Revealed

The Dark Order will be unveiling their leader – the one titled “The Exalted One”.  There has been much speculation surrounding the identity of this character for months.  Matt Hardy? Potentially.  Brodie Lee? Possibly.  Lucha Underground head honcho, Dario Cueto? We wish.  There has been so much speculation that Dark Order member Evil Uno has been Tweeting who it definitely isn’t.  So who is The Exalted One? We will hopefully find out tonight.

The Elite vs Inner Circle For The Advantage In AEW’s First Blood & Guts Match

The Inner Circle take on The Elite in a six man match which will determine who will be receiving the advantage for the inaugural Blood and Guts match – think WarGames – on the March 25th installment of AEW Dynamite.  AEW have stated Chris Jericho, Jake Hager, Sammy Guevara, Santana and Ortiz will take on The Elite’s Cody Rhodes, The Young Bucks and AEW Tag Team Champions Hangman Page and Kenny Omega.  Given the quality of competitors, this will be an excellent, must-see match.  The six man match this week will be too, so be sure to check out AEW Dynamite this week!
