WWE Hall of Famer “Edge” Adam Copeland made his AEW Dynamite debut last night on the 4-year anniversary episode, where he confronted TNT Champion Christian Cage for attacking Sting. Copeland then said he wants to team up with Christian again and wants to end his career with his friend of 40 years, and to show the new generation of fans that they are one of the greatest tag teams of all time, by facing teams like FTR and Young Bucks.

However, Christian told him to “go f**k yourself”. You can watch the uncensored video below:

After the show went off the air, Edge laid out Luchasaurus and Nick Wayne with Spears to send the fans home happy.

Last night’s episode drew 800,000 viewers with a 0.28 rating in the 18-49 demo, which is down from last week’s 855,000 viewers with a 0.28 rating.

On the other hand, this week’s episode of WWE NXT drew 857,000 viewers with a 0.22 rating in the 18-49 demo, which is up from last week’s 636,000 viewers with a 0.18 rating.

The main event of NXT featured Dominik Mysterio defeating Trick Williams to become a 2-time North American Champion.

Next week, Dynamite will take place on Tuesday instead of Wednesday, and they’ll be going head-to-head against NXT.

This special Tuesday episode of Dynamite will feature Edge’s first ever match in All Elite Wrestling and it will be against Luchasaurus.

AEW has loaded up this episode even more, as they plan on defeating NXT in the ratings by a big margin, as a lot of fans will prefer to tune in to sign Edge’s first AEW match compared to watching NXT. Below is the card that AEW has announced for next week’s “Title Tuesday” episode:

– “Edge” Adam Copeland vs. Luchasaurus

– Chris Jericho vs. Powerhouse Hobbs

– Saraya (c) vs. Hikaru Shida for the AEW Women’s World Championship

– Rey Fenix (c) vs. Jon Moxley for the AEW International Championship

– Bryan Danielson vs. Swerve Strickland to crown the #1 Contender for the TNT Championship

– Jay White vs. ROH 6-Man Tag Team Champion “Hangman” Adam Page

WWE doesn’t plan on losing to AEW next week, as NXT has been doing very good in viewership as of late and they want the good ratings to continue, to prove that NXT is a legitimate third brand of WWE and not just a developmental show, in order to get a better TV deal.

This is why WWE has loaded up next week’s NXT with some huge names. Below is the card for next week’s show:

– Carmelo Hayes (with John Cena) vs. Bron Breakker (with Paul Heyman)

– Cody Rhodes will deliver a major announcement

– Asuka vs. Roxanne Perez

NXT Women’s Champion Becky Lynch and North American Champion Dominik Mysterio will also appear.
