• Reason Behind AEW Bringing Memphis Legends Next Week, Viewership For This Week’s Dynamite Revealed
All Elite Wrestling will pay tribute to Memphis Wrestling Legends on next week’s episode of AEW Dynamite.

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.
I don’t know the names, I know some names. You figure the ones that are still living that live in the area that Randy Hales knows, those are the guys who are gonna be there.”
The Rhodes Brothers (Cody & Dustin) will face The Lucha Bros on next week’s episode of Dynamite.
The #Brotherhood together for one of the biggest nights ever!! I would strongly suggest you not miss this one. @AEWrestling @AEWonTNT #AEWDynamite NEXT WEDNESDAY!!!! #RhodesVsLuchaBros pic.twitter.com/9jTope0aKJ
