• AEW Paying Tribute To Randy Savage, Brian Christopher & More On Dynamite
All Elite Wrestling will pay tribute to Memphis Wrestling Legends on the upcoming episode of AEW Dynamite.
— All Elite Wrestling (@AEWrestling) January 2, 2020
According to Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer, AEW is doing this because of low ticket sales for next week’s episode of Dynamite:
“So the advance is not good in Memphis. Some of the advances are good, some of them are not good for AEW.
The Memphis advance was weak and they came up with the idea and I think this was Tony Khan’s idea. I think they went with Randy Hales, Randy Hales was contacted and they said: ‘Hey we wanna pay tribute to the Memphis territory.’ It’s like that’s cool — put it on TV.
AEW will be paying tribute to the following names on this upcoming episode of Dynamite:
– Randy Savage
– Angelo Poffo
– Lance Russell
– “Hot Stuff” Eddie & Tommy Gilbert
– Brian Christopher
– Austin Idol
– Dave Brown
– The Rock & Roll Express
– “Handsome” Jimmy Valiant
